12 years ago[NET] netconsole: Support dynamic reconfiguration using configfs
Satyam Sharma [Fri, 10 Aug 2007 22:35:05 +0000]
[NET] netconsole: Support dynamic reconfiguration using configfs

Based upon initial work by Keiichi Kii <k-keiichi@bx.jp.nec.com>.

This patch introduces support for dynamic reconfiguration (adding, removing
and/or modifying parameters of netconsole targets at runtime) using a
userspace interface exported via configfs.  Documentation is also updated
accordingly.

Issues and brief design overview:

(1) Kernel-initiated creation / destruction of kernel objects is not
    possible with configfs -- the lifetimes of the "config items" is managed
    exclusively from userspace.  But netconsole must support boot/module
    params too, and these are parsed in kernel and hence netpolls must be
    setup from the kernel.  Joel Becker suggested to separately manage the
    lifetimes of the two kinds of netconsole_target objects -- those created
    via configfs mkdir(2) from userspace and those specified from the
    boot/module option string.  This adds complexity and some redundancy here
    and also means that boot/module param-created targets are not exposed
    through the configfs namespace (and hence cannot be updated / destroyed
    dynamically).  However, this saves us from locking / refcounting
    complexities that would need to be introduced in configfs to support
    kernel-initiated item creation / destroy there.

(2) In configfs, item creation takes place in the call chain of the
    mkdir(2) syscall in the driver subsystem.  If we used an ioctl(2) to
    create / destroy objects from userspace, the special userspace program is
    able to fill out the structure to be passed into the ioctl and hence
    specify attributes such as local interface that are required at the time
    we set up the netpoll.  For configfs, this information is not available at
    the time of mkdir(2).  So, we keep all newly-created targets (via
    configfs) disabled by default.  The user is expected to set various
    attributes appropriately (including the local network interface if
    required) and then write(2) "1" to the "enabled" attribute.  Thus,
    netpoll_setup() is then called on the set parameters in the context of
    _this_ write(2) on the "enabled" attribute itself.  This design enables
    the user to reconfigure existing netconsole targets at runtime to be
    attached to newly-come-up interfaces that may not have existed when
    netconsole was loaded or when the targets were actually created.  All this
    effectively enables us to get rid of custom ioctls.

(3) Ultra-paranoid configfs attribute show() and store() operations, with
    sanity and input range checking, using only safe string primitives, and
    compliant with the recommendations in Documentation/filesystems/sysfs.txt.

(4) A new function netpoll_print_options() is created in the netpoll API,
    that just prints out the configured parameters for a netpoll structure.
    netpoll_parse_options() is modified to use that and it is also exported to
    be used from netconsole.

Satyam Sharma [Fri, 10 Aug 2007 22:33:40 +0000]
[NET] netconsole: Support multiple logging targets

Based upon initial work by Keiichi Kii <k-keiichi@bx.jp.nec.com>.

This patch introduces support for multiple targets, independent of
CONFIG_NETCONSOLE_DYNAMIC -- this is useful even in the default case and
(including the infrastructure introduced in previous patches) doesn't really
add too many bytes to module text.  All the complexity (and size) comes with
the dynamic reconfigurability / userspace interface patch, and so it's
plausible users may want to keep this enabled but that disabled (say to avoid
a dependency on CONFIG_CONFIGFS_FS too).

Also update documentation to mention the use of ";" separator to specify
multiple logging targets in the boot/module option string.

Brief overview:

We maintain a target_list (and corresponding lock).  Get rid of the static
"default_target" and introduce allocation and release functions for our
netconsole_target objects (but keeping sure to preserve previous behaviour
such as default values).  During init_netconsole(), ";" is used as the
separator to identify multiple target specifications in the boot/module option
string.  The target specifications are parsed and netpolls setup.  During
exit, the target_list is torn down and all items released.

Satyam Sharma [Fri, 10 Aug 2007 22:33:01 +0000]
[NET] netconsole: Introduce netconsole_netdev_notifier

Based upon initial work by Keiichi Kii <k-keiichi@bx.jp.nec.com>.

To update fields of underlying netpoll structure at runtime on corresponding
NETDEV_CHANGEADDR or NETDEV_CHANGENAME notifications.

ioctl(SIOCSIFHWADDR or SIOCSIFNAME) could be used to change the hardware/MAC
address or name of the local interface that our netpoll is attached to.
Whenever this happens, netdev notifier chain is called out with the
NETDEV_CHANGEADDR or NETDEV_CHANGENAME event message.  We respond to that and
update the local_mac or dev_name field of the struct netpoll.  This makes
sense anyway, but is especially required for dynamic netconsole because the
netpoll structure's internal members become user visible files when either
sysfs or configfs are used.  So this helps us to keep up with the MAC
address/name changes and keep values in struct netpoll uptodate.

[ Note that ioctl(SIOCSIFADDR) to change IP address of interface at
  runtime is not handled (to update local_ip of netpoll) on purpose --
  some setups may set the local_ip to a private address, not necessary
  the actual IP address of the sender host, as presently allowed. ]

12 years ago[NET] netconsole: Simplify boot/module option setup logic

[NET] netconsole: Simplify boot/module option setup logic

Based upon initial work by Keiichi Kii <k-keiichi@bx.jp.nec.com>.

Presently, boot/module parameters are set up quite differently for the case of
built-in netconsole (__setup() -> obsolete_checksetup() ->
netpoll_parse_options() -> strlen(config) == 0 in init_netconsole()) vs
modular netconsole (module_param_string() -> string copied to the config
variable -> strlen(config) != 0 init_netconsole() -> netpoll_parse_options()).

This patch makes both of them similar by doing exactly the equivalent of a
module_param_string() in option_setup() also -- just copying the param string
passed from the kernel command line into "config" variable.  So,
strlen(config) != 0 in both cases, and netpoll_parse_options() is always
called from init_netconsole(), thus making the setup logic for both cases
similar.

Now, option_setup() is only ever called / used for the built-in case, so we
put it inside a #ifndef MODULE, otherwise gcc will complain about
option_setup() being "defined but not used".  Also, the "configured" variable
is redundant with this patch and hence removed.

The (!np.dev) check in write_msg() is bogus (always false), because: np.dev is
set by netpoll_setup(), which is called by init_netconsole() before
register_console(), so write_msg() cannot be triggered unless netpoll_setup()
successfully set np.dev.  Also np.dev cannot go away from under us, because
netpoll_setup() grabs us reference on it.  So let's remove the bogus check.

for the same purpose. This changes them to static inlines as
preferred according the current coding style and unifies the
access to sack_ok across multiple files. Magic bitops of sack_ok
for FACK and DSACK are also abstracted to functions with
appropriate names.

Note:
- One sack_ok = 1 remains but that's self explanary, i.e., it
  enables sack
- Couple of !IsReno cases are changed to tcp_is_sack
- There were no users for IsDSack => I dropped it

[TCP]: Reduce sacked_out with reno when purging write_queue

Previously TCP had a transitional state during which reno
counted segments that are already below the current window into
sacked_out, which is now prevented. In addition, re-try now
the unconditional S+L skb catching.

This approach conservatively calls just remove_sack and leaves
reset_sack() calls alone. The best solution to the whole problem
would be to first calculate the new sacked_out fully (this patch
does not move reno_sack_reset calls from original sites and thus
does not implement this). However, that would require very
invasive change to fastretrans_alert (perhaps even slicing it to
two halves). Alternatively, all callers of tcp_packets_in_flight
(i.e., users that depend on sacked_out) should be postponed
until the new sacked_out has been calculated but it isn't any
simpler alternative.

12 years ago[NET]: Make NAPI polling independent of struct net_device objects.
Stephen Hemminger [Wed, 3 Oct 2007 23:41:36 +0000]
[NET]: Make NAPI polling independent of struct net_device objects.

Several devices have multiple independant RX queues per net
device, and some have a single interrupt doorbell for several
queues.

In either case, it's easier to support layouts like that if the
structure representing the poll is independant from the net
device itself.

The signature of the ->poll() call back goes from:

int foo_poll(struct net_device *dev, int *budget)

to

int foo_poll(struct napi_struct *napi, int budget)

The caller is returned the number of RX packets processed (or
the number of "NAPI credits" consumed if you want to get
abstract).  The callee no longer messes around bumping
dev->quota, *budget, etc. because that is all handled in the
caller upon return.

The napi_struct is to be embedded in the device driver private data
structures.

Furthermore, it is the driver's responsibility to disable all NAPI
instances in it's ->stop() device close handler.  Since the
napi_struct is privatized into the driver's private data structures,
only the driver knows how to get at all of the napi_struct instances
it may have per-device.

With lots of help and suggestions from Rusty Russell, Roland Dreier,
Michael Chan, Jeff Garzik, and Jamal Hadi Salim.

Instead it sends the actual value, but for drivers that can only set the retry limit
and the register and in the descriptor need to indicate which of the limits should

ieee80211_tx_control structure. By default the short retry limit should be
used but if the flag is set the long retry should be used.

This does not prevent the driver to ignore the request for "no retry" packets,
but at least those will be send out with the short retry limit. But there is no

denying the association with code 12: "Association denied due to reason
outside the scope of this standard"

up.

I see 2 problems here:
 1. bringing the interface down and up again should be resetting interface state
    i.e. after the interface is brought down, it should have no memory of if or

Correct Makefile rule for generating custom keymap

When building a custom keymap, after setting GENERATE_KEYMAP := 1 in
drivers/char/Makefile, the kernel build fails like this:

CC drivers/char/vt.o
  make[2]: *** No rule to make target `drivers/char/%.map', needed by `drivers/char/defkeymap.c'.  Stop.
  make[1]: *** [drivers/char] Error 2
  make: *** [drivers] Error 2

This was caused by commit af8b128719f5248e542036ea994610a29d0642a6, which
deleted a necessary colon from the Makefile rule that generates the keymap,
since that rule contains both a target and a target-pattern.  The following
patch puts the colon back:

12 years ago[IPv6]: Fix ICMPv6 redirect handling with target multicast address
Brian Haley [Mon, 8 Oct 2007 07:12:05 +0000]
[IPv6]: Fix ICMPv6 redirect handling with target multicast address

When the ICMPv6 Target address is multicast, Linux processes the
redirect instead of dropping it.  The problem is in this code in
ndisc_redirect_rcv():

         if (ipv6_addr_equal(dest, target)) {
                 on_link = 1;
         } else if (!(ipv6_addr_type(target) & IPV6_ADDR_LINKLOCAL)) {
                 ND_PRINTK2(KERN_WARNING
                            "ICMPv6 Redirect: target address is not
link-local.\n");
                 return;
         }

This second check will succeed if the Target address is, for example,
FF02::1 because it has link-local scope.  Instead, it should be checking
if it's a unicast link-local address, as stated in RFC 2461/4861 Section
8.1:

       - The ICMP Target Address is either a link-local address (when
         redirected to a router) or the same as the ICMP Destination
         Address (when redirected to the on-link destination).

I know this doesn't explicitly say unicast link-local address, but it's
implied.

This bug is preventing Linux kernels from achieving IPv6 Logo Phase II
certification because of a recent error that was found in the TAHI test
suite - Neighbor Disovery suite test 206 (v6LC.2.3.6_G) had the
multicast address in the Destination field instead of Target field, so
we were passing the test.  This won't be the case anymore.

The patch below fixes this problem, and also fixes ndisc_send_redirect()
to not send an invalid redirect with a multicast address in the Target
field.  I re-ran the TAHI Neighbor Discovery section to make sure Linux
passes all 245 tests now.

Ilpo Järvinen [Mon, 8 Oct 2007 06:43:10 +0000]
[TCP]: Fix fastpath_cnt_hint when GSO skb is partially ACKed

When only GSO skb was partially ACKed, no hints are reset,
therefore fastpath_cnt_hint must be tweaked too or else it can
corrupt fackets_out. The corruption to occur, one must have
non-trivial ACK/SACK sequence, so this bug is not very often
that harmful. There's a fackets_out state reset in TCP because
fackets_out is known to be inaccurate and that fixes the issue
eventually anyway.

In case there was also at least one skb that got fully ACKed,
the fastpath_skb_hint is set to NULL which causes a recount for
fastpath_cnt_hint (the old value won't be accessed anymore),
thus it can safely be decremented without additional checking.

if it should apply current-based permission checks.  So the solution is to
move the call of audit_signal_info() between those.

Bogosity in question is easily reproduced - add a rule watching for e.g.
kill(2) from specific process (so that audit_signal_info() would not
short-circuit to nothing), say load_policy, watch the bogus OBJ_PID entry
in audit logs claiming that write(2) on selinuxfs file issued by
load_policy(8) had somehow managed to send a signal to syslogd...

Longhaul: add auto enabled "revid_errata" option

VIA C3 Ezra-T has RevisionID equal to 1, but it needs RevisionKey to be 0
or CPU will ignore new frequency and will continue to work at old
frequency.  New "revid_errata" option will force RevisionKey to be set to
0, whatever RevisionID is.

Additionaly "Longhaul" will not silently ignore unsuccessful transition.
It will try to check if "revid_errata" or "disable_acpi_c3" options need to
be enabled for this processor/system.

Same for Longhaul ver.  2 support.  It will be disabled if none of above
options will work.

 Best case scenario (with patch apllied and v2 enabled):
 longhaul: VIA C3 'Ezra' [C5C] CPU detected.  Longhaul v2 supported.
 longhaul: Using northbridge support.
 longhaul: VRM 8.5
 longhaul: Max VID=1.350  Min VID=1.050, 13 possible voltage scales
 longhaul: f: 300000 kHz, index: 0, vid: 1050 mV
 [...]
 longhaul: Voltage scaling enabled.
 Worst case scenario:
 longhaul: VIA C3 'Ezra-T' [C5M] CPU detected.  Powersaver supported.
 longhaul: Using northbridge support.
 longhaul: Using ACPI support.
 longhaul: VRM 8.5
 longhaul: Claims to support voltage scaling but min & max are both 1.250. Voltage scaling disabled
 longhaul: Failed to set requested frequency!
 longhaul: Enabling "Ignore Revision ID" option.
 longhaul: Failed to set requested frequency!
 longhaul: Disabling ACPI C3 support.

Fix timer_stats printout of events/sec

When using /proc/timer_stats on ppc64 I noticed the events/sec field wasnt
accurate.  Sometimes the integer part was incorrect due to rounding (we
werent taking the fractional seconds into consideration).

The fraction part is also wrong, we need to pad the printf statement and
take the bottom three digits of 1000 times the value.

12 years agoDon't do load-average calculations at even 5-second intervals
Linus Torvalds [Sun, 7 Oct 2007 23:17:38 +0000]
Don't do load-average calculations at even 5-second intervals

It turns out that there are a few other five-second timers in the
kernel, and if the timers get in sync, the load-average can get
artificially inflated by events that just happen to coincide.

So just offset the load average calculation it by a timer tick.

Noticed by Anders Boström, for whom the coincidence started triggering
on one of his machines with the JBD jiffies rounding code (JBD is one of
the subsystems that also end up using a 5-second timer by default).

12 years agoVT_WAITACTIVE: Avoid returning EINTR when not necessary
Linus Torvalds [Sun, 7 Oct 2007 23:02:55 +0000]
VT_WAITACTIVE: Avoid returning EINTR when not necessary

We should generally prefer to return ERESTARTNOHAND rather than EINTR,
so that processes with unhandled signals that get ignored don't return
EINTR.

This can help with X startup issues:

    Fatal server error:
    xf86OpenConsole: VT_WAITACTIVE failed: Interrupted system call

although the real fix is having the X server always retry EINTR
regardless (since EINTR does happen for signals that have handlers
installed). Keithp has a patch for that.

Regardless, ERESTARTNOHAND is the correct thing to use.

12 years agoFix non-terminated PCI match table in PowerMac IDE

Fix non-terminated PCI match table in PowerMac IDE

The PCI device table in the powermac IDE driver isn't properly
terminated.  Depending on how your kernel is linked and other random
factors, you can end up with this driver matched against any other PCI
device in your system, possibly crashing at boot.

Thanks to Heikki for tracking this down with me, the bug have been there
for some time, though it rarely hurts due to luck.  In this case, the
switch from .22 to .23-rc9 is causing it to show up due to differences
in the resulting layout of .data I suppose.
