Kernel 5.9

Post by xeno74 »

Hi All,

The Linux 5.9 merge window is open now so I released the first alpha today.

New:
Download: linux-image-5.9-alpha1-X1000_X5000.tar.gz

Image

Please test the kernels.

Thanks,
Christian

Hi All,

I compiled the alpha2 (latest Git kernel) today.

New:
Unfortunately, Xorg doesn't start on some Linux distributions anymore. For example on Fienix (Debian Sid PowerPC 32-bit) and on ubuntu MATE 16.04.6 (PowerPC 32-bit). I tested these distributions on the X1000, X5000, and in a virtual e5500 QEMU machine with a virtio_gpu.

Error messages:

Code: Select all

systemd-journald[2238]: Failed to send WATCHDOG-1 notification message: Connection refused
systemd-journald[2238]: Failed to send WATCHDOG-1 notification message: Transport endpoint is not connected
systemd-journald[2238]: Failed to send WATCHDOG-1 notification message: Transport endpoint is not connected

systemd-journald[2238]: Failed to send WATCHDOG-1 notification message: Transport endpoint is not connected
systemd-journald[2238]: Failed to send WATCHDOG-1 notification message: Transport endpoint is not connected
But Xorg works on Ubuntu 10.04.4 (PowerPC 32-bit), openSUSE Tumbleweed 20190722 PPC64 and on Fedora 27 PPC64 with the alpha2 (latest Git kernel).

I was able to revert the dma-mapping updates with the following command:

Code: Select all

git revert 2ed90dbbf7be3b7cd2790fc6fa946c478ab496b8 -m 1

Code: Select all

[master 1196b8b16801] Revert "Merge tag 'dma-mapping-5.9' of git://git.infradead.org/users/hch/dma-mapping"
 26 files changed, 416 insertions(+), 415 deletions(-)
But the reverting of the dma-mapping updates doesn't solve the issue.

Cheers,
Christian

I compiled the latest Git kernel today. Unfortunately the issue with Xorg still exists.

    net/scm: Regularize compat handling of scm_detach_fds()
    
    Duplicate the cleanups from commit 2618d530dd8b ("net/scm: cleanup
    scm_detach_fds") into the compat code.
    
    Replace open-coded __receive_sock() with a call to the helper.
    
    Move the check added in commit 1f466e1f15cf ("net: cleanly handle kernel
    vs user buffers for ->msg_control") to before the compat call, even
    though it should be impossible for an in-kernel call to also be compat.
    
    Correct the int "flags" argument to unsigned int to match fd_install()
    and similar APIs.
    
    Regularize any remaining differences, including a whitespace issue,
    a checkpatch warning, and add the check from commit 6900317f5eff ("net,
    scm: fix PaX detected msg_controllen overflow in scm_detach_fds") which
    fixed an overflow unique to 64-bit. To avoid confusion when comparing
    the compat handler to the native handler, just include the same check
    in the compat handler.

This commit has been merged with the seccomp updates v5.9-rc1 on 2020-08-04 14:11:08 -0700. Since these updates, Xorg doesn't start anymore on some Linux distributions.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to revert the first bad commit.

The first bad commit depends on many other commits, which unfortunately I don't know. I tried to remove the modifications of the files from the first bad commit but without any success. There are just too many dependencies.

Hi All,

I compiled a linux-next kernel because of the issue with the latest Git kernel.

Sources:

Code: Select all

git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/next/linux-next a
This kernel includes all available updates. Unfortunately this kernel doesn't boot. It can't initialize the graphics card.

I think we have to wait for some updates.

Cheers,
Christian

Hi All,

Kees has released a patch because of the Xorg issue. I think his patch works because I can patch the Git source code but the kernel doesn’t boot. In my point of view his modifications aren’t responsible for this second issue. The kernel can’t initialize the graphics card anymore. I think the latest DRM updates are responsible for the second issue. Because of this second issue I can’t test his patch.

Cheers,
Christian

Kees’ patch is in the Git kernel now.

seccomp-v5.9-rc1-fix1

I tried to revert the DRM updates today but without any success because of dependencies so I can’t test Kees’ patch.

Hi All,

I compiled the latest Git kernel today. The issue with Xorg is solved. :-) The X5000 boots and works with the latest Git kernel. Unfortunately the X1000 doesn't boot anymore. It can't initialize the graphics card anymore. :-(

I bisected today.

I reverted the commit selftests/powerpc: Fix pkey syscall redefinitions and compiled a new kernel but without any success.

I reported the X1000 boot issue to the kernel developers.

Link: [PASEMI] Nemo board doesn't boot anymore after the commit "powerpc/book3s64/pkeys: Simplify pkey disable branch"

I will create a test kernel for the X5000 tomorrow because the kernel boots on the X5000.
