13 years ago[PATCH] make valid_mmap_phys_addr_range() take a pfn
Lennert Buytenhek [Mon, 10 Jul 2006 11:45:27 +0000]
[PATCH] make valid_mmap_phys_addr_range() take a pfn

Newer ARMs have a 40 bit physical address space, but mapping physical
memory above 4G needs a special page table format which we (currently?) do
not use for userspace mappings, so what happens instead is that mapping an
address >= 4G will happily discard the upper bits and wrap.

There is a valid_mmap_phys_addr_range() arch hook where we could check for
>= 4G addresses and deny the mapping, but this hook takes an unsigned long
address:

static inline int valid_mmap_phys_addr_range(unsigned long addr, size_t size);

And drivers/char/mem.c:mmap_mem() calls it like this:

static int mmap_mem(struct file * file, struct vm_area_struct * vma)
{
size_t size = vma->vm_end - vma->vm_start;

if (!valid_mmap_phys_addr_range(vma->vm_pgoff << PAGE_SHIFT, size))

So that's not much help either.

This patch makes the hook take a pfn instead of a phys address.

13 years ago[PATCH] Fix and enable EDAC sysfs operation
Doug Thompson [Mon, 10 Jul 2006 11:45:19 +0000]
[PATCH] Fix and enable EDAC sysfs operation

When EDAC was first introduced into the kernel it had a sysfs interface,
but due to some problems it was disabled in 2.6.16 and remained disabled in
2.6.17.

With feedback, several of the control and attribute files of that interface
had some good constructive feedback.  PCI Blacklist/Whitelist was a major
set which has design issues and it has been removed in this patch.  Instead
of storing PCI broken parity status in EDAC, it has been moved to the
pci_dev structure itself by a previous PCI patch.  A future patch will
enable that feature in EDAC by utilizing the pci_dev info.

The sysfs is now enabled in this patch, with a minimal set of control and
attribute files for examining EDAC state and for enabling/disabling the
memory and PCI operations.

The Documentation for EDAC has also been updated to reflect the new state
of EDAC operation.

David Howells [Mon, 10 Jul 2006 11:44:52 +0000]
[PATCH] NOMMU: Fix execution off of ramfs with mmap()

Fix execution through the FDPIC binfmt of programs stored on ramfs by
preventing the ramfs mmap() returning successfully on a private mapping of
a ramfs file.  This causes NOMMU mmap to make a copy of the mapped portion
of the file and map that instead.

This could be improved by granting direct mapping access to read-only
private mappings for which the data is stored on a contiguous run of pages.
 However, this is only likely to be the case if the file was extended with
truncate before being written.

ramfs is left to map the file directly for shared mappings so that SYSV IPC
and POSIX shared memory both still work.

[PATCH] mmap zero-length hugetlb file with PROT_NONE to protect a hugetlb virtual area

Sometimes, applications need below call to be successful although
"/mnt/hugepages/file1" doesn't exist.

fd = open("/mnt/hugepages/file1", O_CREAT|O_RDWR, 0755);
*addr = mmap(NULL, 0x1024*1024*256, PROT_NONE, 0, fd, 0);

As for regular pages (or files), above call does work, but as for huge
pages, above call would fail because hugetlbfs_file_mmap would fail if
(!(vma->vm_flags & VM_WRITE) && len > inode->i_size).

This capability on huge page is useful on ia64 when the process wants to
protect one area on region 4, so other threads couldn't read/write this
area.  A famous JVM (Java Virtual Machine) implementation on IA64 needs the

Although timeouts in usb-storage are relatively uncommon, they do occur.

handler, which is not nice at all.

[PATCH] pci: initialize struct pci_dev.error_state

The pci channel state is currently uninitialized, thus there are two ways
of indicating that "everything's OK": 0 and 1.  This is a bit of a burden.

If a devce driver wants to check if the pci channel is in a working or a
disconnected state, the driver writer must perform checks similar to

   if((pdev->error_state != 0) &&
      (pdev->error_state != pci_channel_io_normal)) {
         whatever();
   }

which is rather akward.  The first check is needed because stuct pci_dev is
inited to all-zeros.  The scond is needed because the error recovery will
set the state to pci_channel_io_normal (which is not zero).

This patch fixes this awkwardness.

13 years ago[PATCH] powerpc: fix trigger handling in the new irq code
Benjamin Herrenschmidt [Mon, 10 Jul 2006 11:44:42 +0000]
[PATCH] powerpc: fix trigger handling in the new irq code

This patch slightly reworks the new irq code to fix a small design error.  I
removed the passing of the trigger to the map() calls entirely, it was not a
good idea to have one call do two different things.  It also fixes a couple of
corner cases.

Mapping a linux virtual irq to a physical irq now does only that.  Setting the
trigger is a different action which has a different call.

The main changes are:

- I no longer call host->ops->map() for an already mapped irq, I just return
  the virtual number that was already mapped.  It was called before to give an
  opportunity to change the trigger, but that was causing issues as that could
  happen while the interrupt was in use by a device, and because of the
  trigger change, map would potentially muck around with things in a racy way.
   That was causing much burden on a given's controller implementation of
  map() to get it right.  This is much simpler now.  map() is only called on
  the initial mapping of an irq, meaning that you know that this irq is _not_
  being used.  You can initialize the hardware if you want (though you don't
  have to).

- Controllers that can handle different type of triggers (level/edge/etc...)
  now implement the standard irq_chip->set_type() call as defined by the
  generic code.  That means that you can use the standard set_irq_type() to
  configure an irq line manually if you wish or (though I don't like that
  interface), pass explicit trigger flags to request_irq() as defined by the
  generic kernel interfaces.  Also, using those interfaces guarantees that
  your controller set_type callback is called with the descriptor lock held,
  thus providing locking against activity on the same interrupt (including
  mask/unmask/etc...) automatically.  A result is that, for example, MPIC's
  own map() implementation calls irq_set_type(NONE) to configure the hardware
  to the default triggers.

- To allow the above, the irq_map array entry for the new mapped interrupt
  is now set before map() callback is called for the controller.

- The irq_create_of_mapping() (also used by irq_of_parse_and_map()) function
  for mapping interrupts from the device-tree now also call the separate
  set_irq_type(), and only does so if there is a change in the trigger type.

- While I was at it, I changed pci_read_irq_line() (which is the helper I
  would expect most archs to use in their pcibios_fixup() to get the PCI
  interrupt routing from the device tree) to also handle a fallback when the
  DT mapping fails consisting of reading the PCI_INTERRUPT_PIN to know wether
  the device has an interrupt at all, and the the PCI_INTERRUPT_LINE to get an
  interrupt number from the device.  That number is then mapped using the
  default controller, and the trigger is set to level low.  That default
  behaviour works for several platforms that don't have a proper interrupt
  tree like Pegasos.  If it doesn't work for your platform, then either
  provide a proper interrupt tree from the firmware so that fallback isn't
  needed, or don't call pci_read_irq_line()

- Add back a bit that got dropped by my main rework patch for properly
  clearing pending IPIs on pSeries when using a kexec

[PATCH] ZVC: add __inc_zone_state for !SMP configuration

It turns out that there is a way to build a kernel with NUMA and no SMP.
In that case we are missing one definition __inc_zone_state.

Provide that missing __inc_zone_state.

(akpm: NUMA && !SMP sounds odd, but I am told "But there is the concept of
cpuless nodes.  A NUMA system without SMP has a single processor but multiple
memory nodes.  This used to work before on IA64 (wasn't aware of it, never seen
anyone with this kind of thing).")

[PATCH] ACPI: fix fan/thermal resume

Daniel Ritz <daniel.ritz-ml@swissonline.ch> says:

The acpi driver suspend/resume patches that went in recently caused a regression
on my box (toshiba tecra 8000 laptop): after resume from swsusp the fan turns on
keeping blowing cold air out of my notebook. before the patches, the fan was off
and would only make noise when required. it's the same thing described in
bugzilla.kernel.org #5000. the acpi suspend/resume patches or at least parts of
them originate in this bug. now the last patch in the report (attach id 8438)
actually fixes the problem - for me and the reporter. this is a trimmed down
version of that patch.

[PATCH] md: fix a plug/unplug race in raid5

When a device is unplugged, requests are moved from one or two (depending on
whether a bitmap is in use) queues to the main request queue.

So whenever requests are put on either of those queues, we should make sure
the raid5 array is 'plugged'.  However we don't.  We currently plug the raid5
queue just before putting requests on queues, so there is room for a race.  If
something unplugs the queue at just the wrong time, requests will be left on
the queue and nothing will want to unplug them.  Normally something else will
plug and unplug the queue fairly soon, but there is a risk that nothing will.

NeilBrown [Mon, 10 Jul 2006 11:44:16 +0000]
[PATCH] md: fix resync speed calculation for restarted resyncs

We introduced 'io_sectors' recently so we could count the sectors that causes
io during resync separate from sectors which didn't cause IO - there can be a
difference if a bitmap is being used to accelerate resync.

However when a speed is reported, we find the number of sectors processed
recently by subtracting an oldish io_sectors count from a current
'curr_resync' count.  This is wrong because curr_resync counts all sectors,
not just io sectors.

So, add a field to mddev to store the curren io_sectors separately from
curr_resync, and use that in the calculations.

When an array is started we start one or two threads (two if there is a

We currently start these *before* the array is completely set up and in

very quickly on another CPU, we can end up dereferencing queue->queuedata
and oops.

being restarted.

13 years ago[PATCH] partitions: let partitions inherit policy from disk
Peter Oberparleiter [Mon, 10 Jul 2006 11:44:00 +0000]
[PATCH] partitions: let partitions inherit policy from disk

Change the partition code in fs/partitions/check.c to initialize a newly
detected partition's policy field with that of the containing block device
(see patch below).

My reasoning is that function set_disk_ro() in block/genhd.c modifies the
policy field (read-only indicator) of a disk and all contained partitions.
When a partition is detected after the call to set_disk_ro(), the policy
field of this partition will currently not inherit the disk's policy field.
 This behavior poses a problem in cases where a block device can be
'logically de- and reactivated' like e.g.  the s390 DASD driver because
partition detection may run after the policy field has been modified.
