[PATCH] add page_mkwrite() vm_operations method

Add a new VMA operation to notify a filesystem or other driver about the
MMU generating a fault because userspace attempted to write to a page
mapped through a read-only PTE.

This facility permits the filesystem or driver to:

 (*) Implement storage allocation/reservation on attempted write, and so to
     deal with problems such as ENOSPC more gracefully (perhaps by generating
     SIGBUS).

 (*) Delay making the page writable until the contents have been written to a
     backing cache. This is useful for NFS/AFS when using FS-Cache/CacheFS.
     It permits the filesystem to have some guarantee about the state of the
     cache.

 (*) Account and limit number of dirty pages. This is one piece of the puzzle
     needed to make shared writable mapping work safely in FUSE.

Needed by cachefs (Or is it cachefiles?  Or fscache? <head spins>).

At least four other groups have stated an interest in it or a desire to use
the functionality it provides: FUSE, OCFS2, NTFS and JFFS2.  Also, things like
EXT3 really ought to use it to deal with the case of shared-writable mmap
encountering ENOSPC before we permit the page to be dirtied.

From: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl>

  get_user_pages(.write=1, .force=1) can generate COW hits on read-only

[PATCH] slab: verify pointers before free

Passing an invalid pointer to kfree() and kmem_cache_free() is likely to
cause bad memory corruption or even take down the whole system because the
bad pointer is likely reused immediately due to the per-CPU caches.  Until
now, we don't do any verification for this if CONFIG_DEBUG_SLAB is
disabled.

As suggested by Linus, add PageSlab check to page_to_cache() and
page_to_slab() to verify pointers passed to kfree().  Also, move the
stronger check from cache_free_debugcheck() to kmem_cache_free() to ensure
the passed pointer actually belongs to the cache we're about to free the
object.

For page_to_cache() and page_to_slab(), the assertions should have
virtually no extra cost (two instructions, no data cache pressure) and for
kmem_cache_free() the overhead should be minimal.

without loosing their connection to pagecache pages.

Note that we implement the migration entries only for linear mappings.
Nonlinear mappings still require the unmapping of the ptes for migration.

And another writepage() ugliness shows up.  writepage() can drop the page
lock.  Therefore we have to remove migration ptes before calling writepages()
in order to avoid having migration entries point to unlocked pages.

[PATCH] Swapless page migration: add R/W migration entries

Implement read/write migration ptes

We take the upper two swapfiles for the two types of migration ptes and define
a series of macros in swapops.h.

The VM is modified to handle the migration entries.  migration entries can
only be encountered when the page they are pointing to is locked.  This limits
the number of places one has to fix.  We also check in copy_pte_range and in
mprotect_pte_range() for migration ptes.

We check for migration ptes in do_swap_cache and call a function that will
then wait on the page lock.  This allows us to effectively stop all accesses
to apge.

Migration entries are created by try_to_unmap if called for migration and
removed by local functions in migrate.c

From: Hugh Dickins <hugh@veritas.com>

  Several times while testing swapless page migration (I've no NUMA, just
  hacking it up to migrate recklessly while running load), I've hit the
  BUG_ON(!PageLocked(p)) in migration_entry_to_page.

  This comes from an orphaned migration entry, unrelated to the current
  correctly locked migration, but hit by remove_anon_migration_ptes as it
  checks an address in each vma of the anon_vma list.

  Such an orphan may be left behind if an earlier migration raced with fork:
  copy_one_pte can duplicate a migration entry from parent to child, after
  remove_anon_migration_ptes has checked the child vma, but before it has
  removed it from the parent vma.  (If the process were later to fault on this
  orphaned entry, it would hit the same BUG from migration_entry_wait.)

  This could be fixed by locking anon_vma in copy_one_pte, but we'd rather
  not.  There's no such problem with file pages, because vma_prio_tree_add
  adds child vma after parent vma, and the page table locking at each end is
  enough to serialize.  Follow that example with anon_vma: add new vmas to the
  tail instead of the head.

  (There's no corresponding problem when inserting migration entries,
  because a missed pte will leave the page count and mapcount high, which is
  allowed for.  And there's no corresponding problem when migrating via swap,
  because a leftover swap entry will be correctly faulted.  But the swapless
  method has no refcounting of its entries.)

From: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>

  pte_unmap_unlock() takes the pte pointer as an argument.

From: Hugh Dickins <hugh@veritas.com>

  Several times while testing swapless page migration, gcc has tried to exec
  a pointer instead of a string: smells like COW mappings are not being
  properly write-protected on fork.

  The protection in copy_one_pte looks very convincing, until at last you
  realize that the second arg to make_migration_entry is a boolean "write",
  and SWP_MIGRATION_READ is 30.

  Anyway, it's better done like in change_pte_range, using
  is_write_migration_entry and make_migration_entry_read.

From: Hugh Dickins <hugh@veritas.com>

  Remove unnecessary obfuscation from sys_swapon's range check on swap type,
  which blew up causing memory corruption once swapless migration made

OGAWA Hirofumi [Fri, 23 Jun 2006 09:03:26 +0000]
[PATCH] writeback: fix range handling

When a writeback_control's `start' and `end' fields are used to
indicate a one-byte-range starting at file offset zero, the required
values of .start=0,.end=0 mean that the ->writepages() implementation
has no way of telling that it is being asked to perform a range
request.  Because we're currently overloading (start == 0 && end == 0)
to mean "this is not a write-a-range request".

To make all this sane, the patch changes range of writeback_control.

So caller does: If it is calling ->writepages() to write pages, it
sets range (range_start/end or range_cyclic) always.

And if range_cyclic is true, ->writepages() thinks the range is
cyclic, otherwise it just uses range_start and range_end.

This patch does,

    - Add LLONG_MAX, LLONG_MIN, ULLONG_MAX to include/linux/kernel.h
      -1 is usually ok for range_end (type is long long). But, if someone did,

range_end += val; range_end is "val - 1"
u64val = range_end >> bits; u64val is "~(0ULL)"

      or something, they are wrong. So, this adds LLONG_MAX to avoid nasty
      things, and uses LLONG_MAX for range_end.

    - All callers of ->writepages() sets range_start/end or range_cyclic.

    - Fix updates of ->writeback_index. It seems already bit strange.
      If it starts at 0 and ended by check of nr_to_write, this last
      index may reduce chance to scan end of file.  So, this updates
      ->writeback_index only if range_cyclic is true or whole-file is
      scanned.

[PATCH] radix-tree: direct data

The ability to have height 0 radix trees (a direct pointer to the data item
rather than going through a full node->slot) quietly disappeared with
old-2.6-bkcvs commit ffee171812d51652f9ba284302d9e5c5cc14bdfd.  On 64-bit
machines this causes nearly 600 bytes to be used for every <= 4K file in
pagecache.

Re-introduce this feature, root tags stored in spare ->gfp_mask bits.

Simplify radix_tree_delete's complex tag clearing arrangement (which would
become even more complex) by just falling back to tag clearing functions
(the pagecache radix-tree never uses this path anyway, so the icache
savings will mean it's actually a speedup).

On my 4GB G5, this saves 8MB RAM per kernel kernel source+object tree in
pagecache.

Pagecache lookup, insertion, and removal speed for small files will also be
improved.

This makes RCU radix tree harder, but it's worth it.

Rafael J. Wysocki [Fri, 23 Jun 2006 09:03:18 +0000]
[PATCH] swsusp: rework memory shrinker

Rework the swsusp's memory shrinker in the following way:

- Simplify balance_pgdat() by removing all of the swsusp-related code
  from it.

- Make shrink_all_memory() use shrink_slab() and a new function
  shrink_all_zones() which calls shrink_active_list() and
  shrink_inactive_list() directly for each zone in a way that's optimized
  for suspend.

In shrink_all_memory() we try to free exactly as many pages as the caller
asks for, preferably in one shot, starting from easier targets.   If slab
caches are huge, they are most likely to have enough pages to reclaim.
 The inactive lists are next (the zones with more inactive pages go first)
etc.

Each time shrink_all_memory() attempts to shrink the active and inactive
lists for each zone in 5 passes.   In the first pass, only the inactive
lists are taken into consideration.   In the next two passes the active
lists are also shrunk, but mapped pages are not reclaimed.   In the last
two passes the active and inactive lists are shrunk and mapped pages are
reclaimed as well.  The aim of this is to alter the reclaim logic to choose
the best pages to keep on resume and improve the responsiveness of the
resumed system.

[PATCH] tightening hugetlb strict accounting

Current hugetlb strict accounting for shared mapping always assume mapping
starts at zero file offset and reserves pages between zero and size of the
file.  This assumption often reserves (or lock down) a lot more pages then
necessary if application maps at none zero file offset.  libhugetlbfs is
one example that requires proper reservation on shared mapping starts at
none zero offset.

This patch extends the reservation and hugetlb strict accounting to support
any arbitrary pair of (offset, len), resulting a much more robust and
accurate scheme.  More importantly, it won't lock down any hugetlb pages

[PATCH] support for panic at OOM

This patch adds panic_on_oom sysctl under sys.vm.

When sysctl vm.panic_on_oom = 1, the kernel panics intead of killing rogue
processes.  And if vm.panic_on_oom is 0 the kernel will do oom_kill() in
the same way as it does today.  Of course, the default value is 0 and only
root can modifies it.

In general, oom_killer works well and kill rogue processes.  So the whole
system can survive.  But there are environments where panic is preferable
rather than kill some processes.

[PATCH] wait_table and zonelist initializing for memory hotadd: update zonelists

In current code, zonelist is considered to be build once, no modification.
But MemoryHotplug can add new zone/pgdat.  It must be updated.

This patch modifies build_all_zonelists().  By this, build_all_zonelist() can
reconfig pgdat's zonelists.

To update them safety, this patch use stop_machine_run().  Other cpus don't
touch among updating them by using it.

In old version (V2 of node hotadd), kernel updated them after zone
initialization.  But present_page of its new zone is still 0, because
online_page() is not called yet at this time.  Build_zonelists() checks
present_pages to find present zone.  It was too early.  So, I changed it after
online_pages().

Andy Whitcroft [Fri, 23 Jun 2006 09:03:01 +0000]
[PATCH] zone handle unaligned zone boundaries

The buddy allocator has a requirement that boundaries between contigious
zones occur aligned with the the MAX_ORDER ranges.  Where they do not we
will incorrectly merge pages cross zone boundaries.  This can lead to pages
from the wrong zone being handed out.

Originally the buddy allocator would check that buddies were in the same
zone by referencing the zone start and end page frame numbers.  This was
removed as it became very expensive and the buddy allocator already made
the assumption that zones boundaries were aligned.

It is clear that not all configurations and architectures are honouring
this alignment requirement.  Therefore it seems safest to reintroduce
support for non-aligned zone boundaries.  This patch introduces a new check
when considering a page a buddy it compares the zone_table index for the
two pages and refuses to merge the pages where they do not match.  The
zone_table index is unique for each node/zone combination when
FLATMEM/DISCONTIGMEM is enabled and for each section/zone combination when
SPARSEMEM is enabled (a SPARSEMEM section is at least a MAX_ORDER size).

iterating across only online or present CPUs.  This is inefficient and
possibly buggy.

We're renaming for_each_cpu() to for_each_possible_cpu() to avoid this in the
future.

This patch replaces for_each_cpu with for_each_possible_cpu.

David Howells [Fri, 23 Jun 2006 09:02:58 +0000]
[PATCH] VFS: Permit filesystem to perform statfs with a known root dentry

Give the statfs superblock operation a dentry pointer rather than a superblock
pointer.

This complements the get_sb() patch.  That reduced the significance of
sb->s_root, allowing NFS to place a fake root there.  However, NFS does
require a dentry to use as a target for the statfs operation.  This permits
the root in the vfsmount to be used instead.

linux/mount.h has been added where necessary to make allyesconfig build
successfully.

Interest has also been expressed for use with the FUSE and XFS filesystems.

14 years ago[PATCH] VFS: Permit filesystem to override root dentry on mount
David Howells [Fri, 23 Jun 2006 09:02:57 +0000]
[PATCH] VFS: Permit filesystem to override root dentry on mount

Extend the get_sb() filesystem operation to take an extra argument that
permits the VFS to pass in the target vfsmount that defines the mountpoint.

The filesystem is then required to manually set the superblock and root dentry
pointers.  For most filesystems, this should be done with simple_set_mnt()
which will set the superblock pointer and then set the root dentry to the
superblock's s_root (as per the old default behaviour).

The get_sb() op now returns an integer as there's now no need to return the
superblock pointer.

This patch permits a superblock to be implicitly shared amongst several mount
points, such as can be done with NFS to avoid potential inode aliasing.  In
such a case, simple_set_mnt() would not be called, and instead the mnt_root
and mnt_sb would be set directly.

The patch also makes the following changes:

 (*) the get_sb_*() convenience functions in the core kernel now take a vfsmount
     pointer argument and return an integer, so most filesystems have to change
     very little.

 (*) If one of the convenience function is not used, then get_sb() should
     normally call simple_set_mnt() to instantiate the vfsmount. This will
     always return 0, and so can be tail-called from get_sb().

 (*) generic_shutdown_super() now calls shrink_dcache_sb() to clean up the
     dcache upon superblock destruction rather than shrink_dcache_anon().

     This is required because the superblock may now have multiple trees that
     aren't actually bound to s_root, but that still need to be cleaned up. The
     currently called functions assume that the whole tree is rooted at s_root,
     and that anonymous dentries are not the roots of trees which results in
     dentries being left unculled.

     However, with the way NFS superblock sharing are currently set to be
     implemented, these assumptions are violated: the root of the filesystem is
     simply a dummy dentry and inode (the real inode for '/' may well be
     inaccessible), and all the vfsmounts are rooted on anonymous[*] dentries
     with child trees.

     [*] Anonymous until discovered from another tree.

 (*) The documentation has been adjusted, including the additional bit of
     changing ext2_* into foo_* in the documentation.

[PATCH] Fix cdrom being confused on using kdump

I have seen the cdrom drive appearing confused on using kdump on certain
x86_64 systems.  During the booting up of the second kernel, the following
message would keep flooding the console, and the booting would not proceed
any further.

hda: cdrom_pc_intr: The drive appears confused (ireason = 0x01)

In this patch, whenever we are hitting a confused state in the interrupt
handler with the DRQ set, we end the request and return ide_stopped.  Using
this I dont see the status error.

[PATCH] Remove useless check in drivers/net/pcmcia/xirc2ps_cs.c

hi,

coverity choked at this check (id #223), assuming that
skb might be NULL and used anyways later. Since
start_hard_xmit() always gets called with a valid
skb, the check is useless and this patch removes it.

14 years ago[PATCH] zlib_inflate: Upgrade library code to a recent version
Richard Purdie [Thu, 22 Jun 2006 21:47:34 +0000]
[PATCH] zlib_inflate: Upgrade library code to a recent version

Upgrade the zlib_inflate implementation in the kernel from a patched
version 1.1.3/4 to a patched 1.2.3.

The code in the kernel is about seven years old and I noticed that the
external zlib library's inflate performance was significantly faster (~50%)
than the code in the kernel on ARM (and faster again on x86_32).

For comparison the newer deflate code is 20% slower on ARM and 50% slower
on x86_32 but gives an approx 1% compression ratio improvement.  I don't
consider this to be an improvement for kernel use so have no plans to
change the zlib_deflate code.

Various changes have been made to the zlib code in the kernel, the most
significant being the extra functions/flush option used by ppp_deflate.
This update reimplements the features PPP needs to ensure it continues to
work.

This code has been tested on ARM under both JFFS2 (with zlib compression
enabled) and ppp_deflate and on x86_32.  JFFS2 sees an approx.  10% real
world file read speed improvement.

This patch also removes ZLIB_VERSION as it no longer has a correct value.
We don't need version checks anyway as the kernel's module handling will
take care of that for us.  This removal is also more in keeping with the
zlib author's wishes (http://www.zlib.net/zlib_faq.html#faq24) and I've
added something to the zlib.h header to note its a modified version.

Bjorn Helgaas [Thu, 22 Jun 2006 21:47:32 +0000]
[PATCH] vgacon: make VGA_MAP_MEM take size, remove extra use

VGA_MAP_MEM translates to ioremap() on some architectures.  It makes sense
to do this to vga_vram_base, because we're going to access memory between
vga_vram_base and vga_vram_end.

But it doesn't really make sense to map starting at vga_vram_end, because
we aren't going to access memory starting there.  On ia64, which always has
to be different, ioremapping vga_vram_end gives you something completely
incompatible with ioremapped vga_vram_start, so vga_vram_size ends up being
nonsense.

As a bonus, we often know the size up front, so we can use ioremap()
correctly, rather than giving it a zero size.

14 years ago[PATCH] Fix dcache race during umount
NeilBrown [Thu, 22 Jun 2006 21:47:28 +0000]
[PATCH] Fix dcache race during umount

The race is that the shrink_dcache_memory shrinker could get called while a
filesystem is being unmounted, and could try to prune a dentry belonging to
that filesystem.

If it does, then it will call in to iput on the inode while the dentry is
no longer able to be found by the umounting process.  If iput takes a
while, generic_shutdown_super could get all the way though
shrink_dcache_parent and shrink_dcache_anon and invalidate_inodes without
ever waiting on this particular inode.

Eventually the superblock gets freed anyway and if the iput tried to touch
it (which some filesystems certainly do), it will lose.  The promised
"Self-destruct in 5 seconds" doesn't lead to a nice day.

The race is closed by holding s_umount while calling prune_one_dentry on
someone else's dentry.  As a down_read_trylock is used,
shrink_dcache_memory will no longer try to prune the dentry of a filesystem
that is being unmounted, and unmount will not be able to start until any
such active prune_one_dentry completes.

This requires that prune_dcache *knows* which filesystem (if any) it is
doing the prune on behalf of so that it can be careful of other
filesystems.  shrink_dcache_memory isn't called it on behalf of any
filesystem, and so is careful of everything.

shrink_dcache_anon is now passed a super_block rather than the s_anon list
out of the superblock, so it can get the s_anon list itself, and can pass
the superblock down to prune_dcache.

If prune_dcache finds a dentry that it cannot free, it leaves it where it
is (at the tail of the list) and exits, on the assumption that some other
thread will be removing that dentry soon.  To try to make sure that some
work gets done, a limited number of dnetries which are untouchable are
skipped over while choosing the dentry to work on.

I believe this race was first found by Kirill Korotaev.

14 years ago[PATCH] remove steal_locks()
Miklos Szeredi [Thu, 22 Jun 2006 21:47:22 +0000]
[PATCH] remove steal_locks()

This patch removes the steal_locks() function.

steal_locks() doesn't work correctly with any filesystem that does it's own
lock management, including NFS, CIFS, etc.

In addition it has weird semantics on local filesystems in case tasks
sharing file-descriptor tables are doing POSIX locking operations in
parallel to execve().

The steal_locks() function has an effect on applications doing:

clone(CLONE_FILES)
  /* in child */
  lock
  execve
  lock

POSIX locks acquired before execve (by "child", "parent" or any further
task sharing files_struct) will after the execve be owned exclusively by
"child".

According to Chris Wright some LSB/LTP kind of suite triggers without the
stealing behavior, but there's no known real-world application that would
also fail.

Apps using NPTL are not affected, since all other threads are killed before
execve.

Apps using LinuxThreads are only affected if they

  - have multiple threads during exec (LinuxThreads doesn't kill other
    threads, the app may do it with pthread_kill_other_threads_np())
  - rely on POSIX locks being inherited across exec

Both conditions are documented, but not their interaction.

Apps using clone() natively are affected if they

  - use clone(CLONE_FILES)
  - rely on POSIX locks being inherited across exec

The above scenarios are unlikely, but possible.

If the patch is vetoed, there's a plan B, that involves mostly keeping the
weird stealing semantics, but changing the way lock ownership is handled so
that network and local filesystems work consistently.

That would add more complexity though, so this solution seems to be
preferred by most people.

14 years ago[PATCH] Fix a race condition between ->i_mapping and iput()
OGAWA Hirofumi [Thu, 22 Jun 2006 21:47:21 +0000]
[PATCH] Fix a race condition between ->i_mapping and iput()

This race became a cause of oops, and can reproduce by the following.

    while true; do
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/.static/dev/hdg1 bs=512 count=1000 & sync
    done

This race condition was between __sync_single_inode() and iput().

          cpu0 (fs's inode)                 cpu1 (bdev's inode)
          -----------------                 -------------------
                                       close("/dev/hda2")
                                       [...]
__sync_single_inode()
   /* copy the bdev's ->i_mapping */
   mapping = inode->i_mapping;

                                       generic_forget_inode()
                                          bdev_clear_inode()
     /* restre the fs's ->i_mapping */
             inode->i_mapping = &inode->i_data;
          /* bdev's inode was freed */
                                          destroy_inode(inode);

   if (wait) {
      /* dereference a freed bdev's mapping->host */
      filemap_fdatawait(mapping);  /* Oops */

Since __sync_single_inode() is only taking a ref-count of fs's inode, the
another process can be close() and freeing the bdev's inode while writing
fs's inode.  So, __sync_signle_inode() accesses the freed ->i_mapping,
oops.

This patch takes a ref-count on the bdev's inode for the fs's inode before
setting a ->i_mapping, and the clear_inode() of the fs's inode does iput() on
the bdev's inode.  So if the fs's inode is still living, bdev's inode
shouldn't be freed.
