Subject[PATCH 4.19 68/89] iommu/vt-d: dmar: replace WARN_TAINT with pr_warn + add_taint
Date
From: Hans de Goede <hdegoede@redhat.com>

commit 59833696442c674acbbd297772ba89e7ad8c753d upstream.

Quoting from the comment describing the WARN functions in
include/asm-generic/bug.h:

* WARN(), WARN_ON(), WARN_ON_ONCE, and so on can be used to report
* significant kernel issues that need prompt attention if they should ever
* appear at runtime.
*
* Do not use these macros when checking for invalid external inputs

The (buggy) firmware tables which the dmar code was calling WARN_TAINT
for really are invalid external inputs. They are not under the kernel's
control and the issues in them cannot be fixed by a kernel update.
So logging a backtrace, which invites bug reports to be filed about this,
is not helpful.

Some distros, e.g. Fedora, have tools watching for the kernel backtraces
logged by the WARN macros and offer the user an option to file a bug for
this when these are encountered. The WARN_TAINT in warn_invalid_dmar()
+ another iommu WARN_TAINT, addressed in another patch, have lead to over
a 100 bugs being filed this way.

This commit replaces the WARN_TAINT("...") calls, with
pr_warn(FW_BUG "...") + add_taint(TAINT_FIRMWARE_WORKAROUND, ...) calls
avoiding the backtrace and thus also avoiding bug-reports being filed
about this against the kernel.

Fixes: fd0c8894893c ("intel-iommu: Set a more specific taint flag for invalid BIOS DMAR tables")
Fixes: e625b4a95d50 ("iommu/vt-d: Parse ANDD records")
