Subject: [PATCH] powerpc/64: Setup a paca before parsing device tree etc.
commit d4a8e98621543d5798421eed177978bf2b3cdd11 upstream.
Currently we set up the paca after parsing the device tree for CPU
features. Prior to that, r13 contains random data, which means there
is random data in r13 while we're running the generic dt parsing code.
This random data varies depending on whether we boot through a vmlinux
or a zImage: for the vmlinux case it's usually around zero, but for
zImages we see random values like 912a72603d420015.
This is poor practice, and can also lead to difficult-to-debug
crashes. For example, when kcov is enabled, the kcov instrumentation
attempts to read preempt_count out of the current task, which goes via
the paca. This then crashes in the zImage case.
Similarly stack protector can cause crashes if r13 is bogus, by
reading from the stack canary in the paca.
To resolve this:
- move the paca setup to before the CPU feature parsing.
- because we no longer have access to CPU feature flags in paca
setup, change the HV feature test in the paca setup path to consider
the actual value of the MSR rather than the CPU feature.
Translations get switched on once we leave early_setup, so I think
we'd already catch any other cases where the paca or task aren't set
up.
Boot tested on a P9 guest and host.
Fixes: fb0b0a73b223 ("powerpc: Enable kcov")
Fixes: 06ec27aea9fc ("powerpc/64: add stack protector support")
