Subject: [GIT PULL] arm64 fixes for -rc3
Date: Fri, 21 Feb 2020 16:01:26 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20200221160126.GB19330@willie-the-truck> (raw)

Hi Linus,

Please pull these arm64 fixes for -rc3.

It's all straightforward apart from the changes to mmap()/mremap() in
relation to their handling of address arguments from userspace with
non-zero tag bits in the upper byte. The change to brk() is necessary
to fix a nasty user-visible regression in malloc(), but we tightened up
mmap() and mremap() at the same time because they also allow the user to
create virtual aliases by accident. It's much less likely than brk() to
matter in practice, but enforcing the principle of "don't permit the
creation of mappings using tagged addresses" leads to a straightforward
ABI without having to worry about the "but what if a crazy program did
foo?" aspect of things.

That said, this is core code and I know you'd prefer to limit the change
to brk(), so the patch is sitting on top of the branch in case you prefer
not to include it. If you decide to tweak it manually, please can you
update the docs at the same time?

Cheers,

Will
