[PATCH] NFS: large non-page-aligned direct I/O clobbers memory

The logic in nfs_direct_read_schedule and nfs_direct_write_schedule can
allow data->npages to be one larger than rpages.  This causes a page
pointer to be written beyond the end of the pagevec in nfs_read_data (or

Also get rid of the redundant argument to nfs_commit_alloc().

[PATCH] ext3_getblk() should handle HOLE correctly

It has been reported that ext3_getblk() is not doing the right thing and

Looking at the code, it looks like it's not handle HOLE correctly.  It ends
up returning -EIO.  Here is the patch to fix it.

If we really want to be paranoid, we can allow return values 0 (HOLE), 1
(we asked for one block) and return -EIO for more than 1 block.  But I
really don't see a reason for doing it - all we need is the block# here.
(doesn't matter how many blocks are mapped).

ext3_get_blocks_handle() returns number of blocks it mapped.  It returns 0
in case of HOLE.  ext3_getblk() should handle HOLE properly (currently its
dumping warning stack and returning -EIO).

the signal.  This is wrong, because userspace expects that the lock
function does not return in any case of signal delivery.

This was not caught by my insufficient test case, but triggered a nasty
userspace problem in an high load application scenario.  Unfortunately also
glibc does not check for this invalid return value.

Using -ERSTARTNOINTR makes sure, that the interrupted syscall is restarted.
 The restart block related code can be safely removed, as the possible
timeout argument is an absolute time value.

Kirill Korotaev [Thu, 7 Sep 2006 10:17:04 +0000]
[PATCH] IA64,sparc: local DoS with corrupted ELFs

This prevents cross-region mappings on IA64 and SPARC which could lead
to system crash.  They were correctly trapped for normal mmap() calls,
but not for the kernel internal calls generated by executable loading.

This code just moves the architecture-specific cross-region checks into
an arch-specific "arch_mmap_check()" macro, and defines that for the
architectures that needed it (ia64, sparc and sparc64).

Architectures that don't have any special requirements can just ignore
the new cross-region check, since the mmap() code will just notice on
its own when the macro isn't defined.

[MMC] Always use a sector size of 512 bytes

Both MMC and SD specifications specify (although a bit unclearly in
the MMC case) that a sector size of 512 bytes must always be
supported by the card.

Cards can report larger "native" size than this, and cards >= 2 GB
even must do so. Most other readers use 512 bytes even for these
cards. We should do the same to be compatible.

[PATCH] prevent timespec/timeval to ktime_t overflow

Frank v.  Waveren pointed out that on 64bit machines the timespec to
ktime_t conversion might overflow.  This is also true for timeval to
ktime_t conversions.  This breaks a "sleep inf" on 64bit machines.

While a timespec/timeval with tx.sec = MAX_LONG is valid by specification
the internal representation of ktime_t is based on nanoseconds.  The
conversion of seconds to nanoseconds overflows for seconds values >=
(MAX_LONG / NSEC_PER_SEC).

Check the seconds argument to the conversion and limit it to the maximum
time which can be represented by ktime_t.

[ARM] 3762/1: Fix ptrace cache coherency bug for ARM1136 VIPT nonaliasing Harvard caches

Patch from George G. Davis

Resolve ARM1136 VIPT non-aliasing cache coherency issues observed when
using ptrace to set breakpoints and cleanup copy_{to,from}_user_page()
while we're here as requested by Russell King because "it's also far
too heavy on non-v6 CPUs".

NOTES:

1. Only access_process_vm() calls copy_{to,from}_user_page().
2. access_process_vm() calls get_user_pages() to pin down the "page".
3. get_user_pages() calls flush_dcache_page(page) which ensures cache
   coherency between kernel and userspace mappings of "page".  However
   flush_dcache_page(page) may not invalidate I-Cache over this range
   for all cases, specifically, I-Cache is not invalidated for the VIPT
   non-aliasing case.  So memory is consistent between kernel and user
   space mappings of "page" but I-Cache may still be hot over this
   range.  IOW, we don't have to worry about flush_cache_page() before
   memcpy().
4. Now, for the copy_to_user_page() case, after memcpy(), we must flush
   the caches so memory is consistent with kernel cache entries and

Nishanth Aravamudan [Fri, 1 Sep 2006 04:27:53 +0000]
[PATCH] fix NUMA interleaving for huge pages

Since vma->vm_pgoff is in units of smallpages, VMAs for huge pages have the
lower HPAGE_SHIFT - PAGE_SHIFT bits always cleared, which results in badd
offsets to the interleave functions.  Take this difference from small pages
into account when calculating the offset.  This does add a 0-bit shift into
the small-page path (via alloc_page_vma()), but I think that is negligible.
 Also add a BUG_ON to prevent the offset from growing due to a negative
right-shift, which probably shouldn't be allowed anyways.

Tested on an 8-memory node ppc64 NUMA box and got the interleaving I
expected.

[PATCH] powerpc: More via-pmu backlight fixes

The via-pmu backlight code (introduced in 2.6.18) has various design issues
causing crashes on machines using it like the old Wallstreet powerbook
(Michael, the author, never managed to test on these and I just got my hand
on one of those old beasts).

This fixes them by no longer trying to hijack the backlight device of the
frontmost framebuffer (causing that framebuffer to crash) but having it's
own local bits instead.  Might look weird but it's better that way on those
old machines, at least as a last-minute fix for 2.6.18.  We might rework
the whole thing later.  This patch also changes the way it gets notified of
sleep and wakeup in order to properly shut the backlight down on sleep and
bring it back on wakeup.

[PATCH] dm: work around mempool_alloc, bio_alloc_bioset deadlocks

This patch works around a complex dm-related deadlock/livelock down in the
mempool allocator.

Alasdair said:

  Several dm targets suffer from this.

  Mempools are not yet used correctly everywhere in device-mapper: they can
  get shared when devices are stacked, and some targets share them across
  multiple instances.  I made fixing this one of the prerequisites for this
  patch:

    md-dm-reduce-stack-usage-with-stacked-block-devices.patch

  which in some cases makes people more likely to hit the problem.

  There's been some progress on this recently with (unfinished) dm-crypt
  patches at:

    http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/agk/patches/2.6/editing/
      (dm-crypt-move-io-to-workqueue.patch plus dependencies)

and:

  I've no problems with a temporary workaround like that, but Milan Broz (a
  new Redhat developer in the Czech Republic) has started reviewing all the
  mempool usage in device-mapper so I'm expecting we'll soon have a proper fix
  for this associated problems.  [He's back from holiday at the start of next
  week.]

For now, this sad-but-safe little patch will allow the machine to recover.

Shailabh Nagar [Fri, 1 Sep 2006 04:27:38 +0000]
[PATCH] task delay accounting fixes

Cleanup allocation and freeing of tsk->delays used by delay accounting.
This solves two problems reported for delay accounting:

1. oops in __delayacct_blkio_ticks
http://www.uwsg.indiana.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/0608.2/1844.html

Currently tsk->delays is getting freed too early in task exit which can
cause a NULL tsk->delays to get accessed via reading of /proc/<tgid>/stats.
 The patch fixes this problem by freeing tsk->delays closer to when
task_struct itself is freed up.  As a result, it also eliminates the use of
tsk->delays_lock which was only being used (inadequately) to safeguard
access to tsk->delays while a task was exiting.

2. Possible memory leak in kernel/delayacct.c
http://www.uwsg.indiana.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/0608.2/1389.html

The patch cleans up tsk->delays allocations after a bad fork which was
missing earlier.

The patch has been tested to fix the problems listed above and stress
tested with rapid calls to delay accounting's taskstats command interface
(which is the other path that can access the same data, besides the /proc
interface causing the oops above).

14 years ago[PATCH] ZVC: Scale thresholds depending on the size of the system
Christoph Lameter [Fri, 1 Sep 2006 04:27:35 +0000]
[PATCH] ZVC: Scale thresholds depending on the size of the system

The ZVC counter update threshold is currently set to a fixed value of 32.
This patch sets up the threshold depending on the number of processors and
the sizes of the zones in the system.

With the current threshold of 32, I was able to observe slight contention
when more than 130-140 processors concurrently updated the counters.  The
contention vanished when I either increased the threshold to 64 or used
Andrew's idea of overstepping the interval (see ZVC overstep patch).

However, we saw contention again at 220-230 processors.  So we need higher
values for larger systems.

But the current default is already a bit of an overkill for smaller
systems.  Some systems have tiny zones where precision matters.  For
example i386 and x86_64 have 16M DMA zones and either 900M ZONE_NORMAL or
ZONE_DMA32.  These are even present on SMP and NUMA systems.

The patch here sets up a threshold based on the number of processors in the
system and the size of the zone that these counters are used for.  The
threshold should grow logarithmically, so we use fls() as an easy
approximation.

Results of tests on a system with 1024 processors (4TB RAM)

The following output is from a test allocating 1GB of memory concurrently
on each processor (Forking the process.  So contention on mmap_sem and the
pte locks is not a factor):

                       X                   MIN
TYPE:               CPUS       WALL       WALL        SYS     USER     TOTCPU
fork                   1      0.552      0.552      0.540    0.012      0.552
fork                   4      0.552      0.548      2.164    0.036      2.200
fork                  16      0.564      0.548      8.812    0.164      8.976
fork                 128      0.580      0.572     72.204    1.208     73.412
fork                 256      1.300      0.660    310.400    2.160    312.560
fork                 512      3.512      0.696   1526.836    4.816   1531.652
fork                1020     20.024      0.700  17243.176    6.688  17249.863

So a threshold of 32 is fine up to 128 processors. At 256 processors contention
becomes a factor.

Overstepping the counter (earlier patch) improves the numbers a bit:

fork                   4      0.552      0.548      2.164    0.040      2.204
fork                  16      0.552      0.548      8.640    0.148      8.788
fork                 128      0.556      0.548     69.676    0.956     70.632
fork                 256      0.876      0.636    212.468    2.108    214.576
fork                 512      2.276      0.672    997.324    4.260   1001.584
fork                1020     13.564      0.680  11586.436    6.088  11592.523

Still contention at 512 and 1020. Contention at 1020 is down by a third.
256 still has a slight bit of contention.

After this patch the counter threshold will be set to 125 which reduces
contention significantly:

fork                 128      0.560      0.548     69.776    0.932     70.708
fork                 256      0.636      0.556    143.460    2.036    145.496

Christoph Lameter [Fri, 1 Sep 2006 04:27:34 +0000]
[PATCH] ZVC: Overstep counters

Increments and decrements are usually grouped rather than mixed.  We can
optimize the inc and dec functions for that case.

Increment and decrement the counters by 50% more than the threshold in
those cases and set the differential accordingly.  This decreases the need
to update the atomic counters.

The idea came originally from Andrew Morton.  The overstepping alone was
sufficient to address the contention issue found when updating the global
and the per zone counters from 160 processors.

Also remove some code in dec_zone_page_state.

USB: Add VIA quirk fixup for VT8235 usb2

Patch to add VIA PCI quirk for Enhanced/Extended USB on VT8235
southbridge. It is needed in order to use EHCI/USB 2.0 with ACPI.
Without it IRQs are not routed correctly, you get an "Unlink after
no-IRQ?" error and the device is unusable.

I belive this could also be a fix for Bugzilla Bug 5835.

usb gadget: g_ether spinlock recursion fix

The new spinlock debug code turned up a spinlock recursion bug in the
Ethernet gadget driver on a disconnect path; it would show up with any
UDC driver where the cancellation of active requests was synchronous,
rather than e.g. delayed until a controller's completion IRQ.

That recursion is fixed here by creating and using a new spinlock to
protect the relevant lists.

IB/mthca: Use IRQ safe locks to protect allocation bitmaps

It is supposed to be OK to call mthca_create_ah() and mthca_destroy_ah()
from any context.  However, for mem-full HCAs, these functions use the
mthca_alloc() and mthca_free() bitmap helpers, and those helpers use
non-IRQ-safe spin_lock() internally.  Lockdep correctly warns that
this could lead to a deadlock.  Fix this by changing mthca_alloc() and
mthca_free() to use spin_lock_irqsave().
