VFS: Clean up shared mount flag propagation

The handling of mount flags in set_mnt_shared() got a little tangled
up during previous cleanups, with the following problems:

* MNT_PNODE_MASK is defined as a literal constant when it should be a
bitwise xor of other MNT_* flags
* set_mnt_shared() clears and then sets MNT_SHARED (part of MNT_PNODE_MASK)
* MNT_PNODE_MASK could use a comment in mount.h
* MNT_PNODE_MASK is a terrible name, change to MNT_SHARED_MASK

This patch fixes these problems.

9 years agofs: improve remount,ro vs buffercache coherency
Nick Piggin [Tue, 22 Dec 2009 00:28:53 +0000]
fs: improve remount,ro vs buffercache coherency

Invalidate sb->s_bdev on remount,ro.

Fixes a problem reported by Jorge Boncompte who is seeing corruption
trying to snapshot a minix filesystem image.  Some filesystems modify
their metadata via a path other than the bdev buffer cache (eg.  they may
use a private linear mapping for their metadata, or implement directories
in pagecache, etc).  Also, file data modifications usually go to the bdev
via their own mappings.

These updates are not coherent with buffercache IO (eg.  via /dev/bdev)
and never have been.  However there could be a reasonable expectation that
after a mount -oremount,ro operation then the buffercache should
subsequently be coherent with previous filesystem modifications.

So invalidate the bdev mappings on a remount,ro operation to provide a
coherency point.

The problem was exposed when we switched the old rd to brd because old rd
didn't really function like a normal block device and updates to rd via
mappings other than the buffercache would still end up going into its
buffercache.  But the same problem has always affected other "normal"
block devices, including loop.

net: bug fix for vlan + gro issue

Traffic (tcp) doesnot start on a vlan interface when gro is enabled.
Even the tcp handshake was not taking place.
This is because, the eth_type_trans call before the netif_receive_skb
in napi_gro_finish() resets the skb->dev to napi->dev from the previously
set vlan netdev interface. This causes the ip_route_input to drop the
incoming packet considering it as a packet coming from a martian source.

I could repro this on 2.6.32.7 (stable) and 2.6.33-rc7.
With this fix, the traffic starts and the test runs fine on both vlan
and non-vlan interfaces.

tc35815: Remove a wrong netif_wake_queue() call which triggers BUG_ON

The netif_wake_queue() is called correctly (i.e. only on !txfull
condition) from txdone routine.  So Unconditional call to the
netif_wake_queue() here is wrong.  This might cause calling of
start_xmit routine on txfull state and trigger BUG_ON.

This bug does not happen when NAPI disabled.  After txdone there
must be at least one free tx slot.  But with NAPI, this is not
true anymore and the BUG_ON can hits on heavy load.

In this driver NAPI was enabled on 2.6.33-rc1 so this is
regression from 2.6.32 kernel.

idr: fix a critical misallocation bug, take#2

This is retry of reverted 859ddf09743a8cc680af33f7259ccd0fd36bfe9d
("idr: fix a critical misallocation bug") which contained two bugs.

* pa[idp->layers] should be cleared even if it's not used by
  sub_alloc() because it's used by mark idr_mark_full().

* The original condition check also assigned pa[l] to p which the new
  code didn't do thus leaving p pointing at the wrong layer.

Both problems have been fixed and the idr code has received good amount
testing using userland testing setup where simple bitmap allocator is
run parallel to verify the result of idr allocation.

The bug this patch fixes is caused by sub_alloc() optimization path
bypassing out-of-room condition check and restarting allocation loop
with starting value higher than maximum allowed value.  For detailed

Pallipadi, Venkatesh [Wed, 10 Feb 2010 18:35:31 +0000]
ACPI: Be in TS_POLLING state during mwait based C-state entry

ACPI deep C-state entry had a long standing bug/missing feature, wherein we were sending
resched IPIs when an idle CPU is in mwait based deep C-state. Only mwait based C1 was using
the write to the monitored address to wake up mwait'ing CPU.

This patch changes the code to retain TS_POLLING bit if we are entering an mwait based
deep C-state.

The patch has been verified to reduce the number of resched IPIs in general and also
improves the performance/power on workloads with low system utilization (i.e., when mwait based
deep C-states are being used).

Commit 84b79f8d2882b0a84330c04839ed4d3cefd2ff77 (drm/i915: Fix crash
while aborting hibernation) attempted to fix a regression introduced

implement new pm ops for i915), but it went too far trying to split
the freeze/suspend and resume/thaw parts of the code.  As a result,
it introduced another regression, which only is visible on some systems.

Fix the problem by merging i915_drm_suspend() with
i915_drm_freeze() and moving some code from i915_resume()
into i915_drm_thaw(), so that intel_opregion_free() and

iwlwifi: sanity check before counting number of tfds can be free

Check the frame control for ieee80211_is_data_qos() is true before
counting the number of tfds can be free, the tfds_in_queue only
increment when ieee80211_is_data_qos() is true before transmit; so it
should only decrement if the type match.

Remove ieee80211_is_data_qos check for frame_ctrl in tx_resp to avoid
invalid information pass from uCode.

("sparc32: use proper types in struct stat")

Accidently changed the struct stat uid/gid members
to uid_t and gid_t, but those get set to
__kernel_uid32_t and __kernel_gid32_t respectively.
Those are of type 'int' but the structure is meant

correct this.

Russell King [Sat, 20 Feb 2010 16:13:29 +0000]
ARM: allow alignment fault mode to be configured at kernel boot

Some glibc versions intentionally create lots of alignment faults in
their gconv code, which if not fixed up, results in segfaults during
boot.  This can prevent systems booting properly.

There is no clear hard-configurable default for this; the desired
default depends on the nature of the userspace which is going to be
booted.

So, provide a way for the alignment fault handler to be configured via
the kernel command line.

CacheFiles: Fix a race in cachefiles_delete_object() vs rename

cachefiles_delete_object() can race with rename.  It gets the parent directory
of the object it's asked to delete, then locks it - but rename may have changed
the object's parent between the get and the completion of the lock.

However, if such a circumstance is detected, we abandon our attempt to delete
the object - since it's no longer in the index key path, it won't be seen
again by lookups of that key.  The assumption is that cachefilesd may have
culled it by renaming it to the graveyard for later destruction.

Samu Onkalo [Sat, 20 Feb 2010 07:17:58 +0000]
Input: polldev can cause crash in case when polling disabled

When polled input device is opened and closed and there are no other
users of polled device, the workqueue is created and destroyed in
every open / close operation. It is probable that at some point
dynamic allocation of internal parts of the workqueue cause changes to the
workqueue.

When a work is queued to the workqueue the work struct contains pointers
to the workqueue data. If the workqueue has been changed and the work
has never been queued to the new workqueue, work-struct contains pointers
to the non-existing workqueue. This will cause crash at the work
cancellation during device close since cancellation of a work assumes
that the workqueue exists.

To prevent that, work struct is cleaned up at device close. This keeps
work struct clean for the next use.

- Raise the maximum board temperatures to the specified maximum ambient
  temperatures for their PHYs plus the expected temperature bias of the
  board
- Raise the maximum controller temperature to 90 degrees
- Lower the minimum temperatures to 0 degrees
- Widen the voltage tolerances to at least +/- 10%
