ring-buffer: Use long for nr_pages to avoid overflow failures
The size variable to change the ring buffer in ftrace is a long. The nr_pages used to update the ring buffer based on the size is int. On 64 bit machines this can cause an overflow problem. For example, the following will cause the ring buffer to crash: # cd /sys/kernel/debug/tracing # echo 10 > buffer_size_kb # echo 8556384240 > buffer_size_kb Then you get the warning of: WARNING: CPU: 1 PID: 318 at kernel/trace/ring_buffer.c:1527 rb_update_pages+0x22f/0x260 Which is: RB_WARN_ON(cpu_buffer, nr_removed); Note each ring buffer page holds 4080 bytes. This is because: 1) 10 causes the ring buffer to have 3 pages. (10kb requires 3 * 4080 pages to hold) 2) (2^31 / 2^10 + 1) * 4080 = 8556384240 The value written into buffer_size_kb is shifted by 10 and then passed to ring_buffer_resize(). 8556384240 * 2^10 = 8761737461760 3) The size passed to ring_buffer_resize() is then divided by BUF_PAGE_SIZE which is 4080. 8761737461760 / 4080 = 2147484672 4) nr_pages is subtracted from the current nr_pages (3) and we get: 2147484669. This value is saved in a signed integer nr_pages_to_update 5) 2147484669 is greater than 2^31 but smaller than 2^32, a signed int turns into the value of -2147482627 6) As the value is a negative number, in update_pages_handler() it is negated and passed to rb_remove_pages() and 2147482627 pages will be removed, which is much larger than 3 and it causes the warning because not all the pages asked to be removed were removed.
