[PATCH] kill sigqueue->lock

This lock is used in sigqueue_free(), but it is always equal to
current->sighand->siglock, so we don't need to keep it in the struct
sigqueue.

[PATCH] reduce sizeof(struct file)

Now that RCU applied on 'struct file' seems stable, we can place f_rcuhead
in a memory location that is not anymore used at call_rcu(&f->f_rcuhead,
file_free_rcu) time, to reduce the size of this critical kernel object.

The trick I used is to move f_rcuhead and f_list in an union called f_u

The callers are changed so that f_rcuhead becomes f_u.fu_rcuhead and f_list
becomes f_u.f_list

Eric W. Biederman [Sun, 30 Oct 2005 23:02:08 +0000]
[PATCH] Don't uselessly export task_struct to userspace in core dumps

task_struct is an internal structure to the kernel with a lot of good
information, that is probably interesting in core dumps.  However there is
no way for user space to know what format that information is in making it
useless.

I grepped the GDB 6.3 source code and NT_TASKSTRUCT while defined is not
used anywhere else.  So I would be surprised if anyone notices it is
missing.

In addition exporting kernel pointers to all the interesting kernel data
structures sounds like the very definition of an information leak.  I
haven't a clue what someone with evil intentions could do with that
information, but in any attack against the kernel it looks like this is the
perfect tool for aiming that attack.

So since NT_TASKSTRUCT is useless as currently defined and is potentially
dangerous, let's just not export it.

(akpm: Daniel Jacobowitz <dan@debian.org> "would be amazed" if anything was
using NT_TASKSTRUCT).

- mpage_writepages()

      - page->index > end_index+1

[PATCH] i386: use -mcpu, not -mtune, for GCCs older than 3.4

I just noted that -mtune is used, which is only supported on recent GCCs; by
reading http://gcc.gnu.org/gcc-3.4/changes.html, you see "-mcpu has been
renamed to -mtune.", so for GCC < 3.4 we're not using any specific tuning in
the appropriate cases.  However -mcpu is deprecated, so use -mtune when
possible.

This was introduced by commit e9d4dce954a60dc23dd1d967766ca2347b780e54 of the
old tree (between 2.6.10-rc3 and 2.6.10) by Linus Torvalds, to remove the use

[PATCH] uml: reuse i386 cpu-specific tuning

Make UML share the underlying cpu-specific tuning done on i386.

Actually, for now many config options aren't used a lot - but that can be done
later.  Also, UML relies on GCC optimization for things like memcpy and such
more than i386, so specifying the correct -march and -mtune should be enough.
Later, we may want to correct some other stuff.

For instance, since FPU context switching, for us, is done (at least
partially, i.e.  between our kernelspace and userspace) by the host, we may
allow usage of FPU operations by GCC.  This doesn't hold for kernelspace vs.
kernelspace, but we don't support preemption.

Ashok Raj [Sun, 30 Oct 2005 22:59:54 +0000]
[PATCH] create and destroy cpufreq sysfs entries based on cpu notifiers

cpufreq entries in sysfs should only be populated when CPU is online state.
 When we either boot with maxcpus=x and then boot the other cpus by echoing
to sysfs online file, these entries should be created and destroyed when
CPU_DEAD is notified.  Same treatement as cache entries under sysfs.

We place the processor in the lowest frequency, so hw managed P-State
transitions can still work on the other threads to save power.

Primary goal was to just make these directories appear/disapper dynamically.

There is one in this patch i had to do, which i really dont like myself but
probably best if someone handling the cpufreq infrastructure could give
this code right treatment if this is not acceptable.  I guess its probably
good for the first cut.

- Converting lock_cpu_hotplug()/unlock_cpu_hotplug() to disable/enable preempt.
  The locking was smack in the middle of the notification path, when the
  hotplug is already holding the lock. I tried another solution to avoid this
  so avoid taking locks if we know we are from notification path. The solution
  was getting very ugly and i decided this was probably good for this iteration
  until someone who understands cpufreq could do a better job than me.

(akpm: export cpucontrol to GPL modules: drivers/cpufreq/cpufreq_stats.c now
does lock_cpu_hotplug())

[PATCH] introduce get_cpu_sysdev() to retrieve a sysfs entry for a cpu.

Some modules creating sysfs entries under /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpuX/
need to know the parent sysfs entry to make devices under them.  This will
just return the sysfs entry for a given cpu.

sysfs entries showing under each cpu sysfs can be easily created if such
entries can be created by registering a sysfs driver for cpuclass.  The
issue is when the entry is created the CPU may not be online, hence we
would need to defer the creation until the online notification comes.

[PATCH] kdump/i386: apic verification failure fix

o Kdump was failing while second kernel was coming up. Check for presence
  of boot cpu apic id was failing in (apic_id_registered), hence hitting
  BUG().

o This should not have failed because before calling setup_local_APIC(), it is
  ensured that even if BIOS has not reported boot cpu, then hard set the
  prence of it. Problem happens because of usage of hard_smp_processor_id()
  which is hardcoded to zero in case of non SMP kernel. In kdump case second
  kernel can boot on a cpu whose boot cpu id is not zero.

13 years ago[PATCH] i386: move apic init in init_IRQs
Eric W. Biederman [Sun, 30 Oct 2005 22:59:41 +0000]
[PATCH] i386: move apic init in init_IRQs

All kinds of ugliness exists because we don't initialize
the apics during init_IRQs.
- We calibrate jiffies in non apic mode even when we are using apics.
- We have to have special code to initialize the apics when non-smp.
- The legacy i8259 must exist and be setup correctly, even
  when we won't use it past initialization.
- The kexec on panic code must restore the state of the io_apics.
- init/main.c needs a special case for !smp smp_init on x86

In addition to pure code movement I needed a couple
of non-obvious changes:
- Move setup_boot_APIC_clock into APIC_late_time_init for
  simplicity.
- Use cpu_khz to generate a better approximation of loops_per_jiffies
  so I can verify the timer interrupt is working.
- Call setup_apic_nmi_watchdog again after cpu_khz is initialized on
  the boot cpu.

[PATCH] i386 nmi_watchdog: Merge check_nmi_watchdog fixes from x86_64

The per cpu nmi watchdog timer is based on an event counter.  idle cpus
don't generate events so the NMI watchdog doesn't fire and the test to see
if the watchdog is working fails.

- Add nmi_cpu_busy so idle cpus don't mess up the test.
- kmalloc prev_nmi_count to keep kernel stack usage bounded.
- Improve the error message on failure so there is enough
  information to debug problems.

13 years ago[PATCH] i386 io_apic.c: Memorize at bootup where the i8259 is connected
Eric W. Biederman [Sun, 30 Oct 2005 22:59:39 +0000]
[PATCH] i386 io_apic.c: Memorize at bootup where the i8259 is connected

Currently we attempt to restore virtual wire mode on reboot, which only
works if we can figure out where the i8259 is connected.  This is very
useful when we kexec another kernel and likely helpful when dealing with a
BIOS that make assumptions about how the system is setup.

Since the acpi MADT table does not provide the location where the i8259 is
connected we have to look at the hardware to figure it out.

Most systems have the i8259 connected the local apic of the cpu so won't be
affected but people running Opteron and some serverworks chipsets should be
able to use kexec now.

In addition this patch removes the hard coded assumption that the io_apic
that delivers isa interrups is always known to the kernel as io_apic 0.  As
there does not appear to be anything to guarantee that assumption is true.

[PATCH] fixup bogus e820 entry with mem=

This was reported because someone was getting oopses reading /proc/iomem.
It was tracked down to a zero-sized 'struct resource' entry which was
located right at 4GB.

You need two conditions to hit this bug: a BIOS E820_RAM area starting at
exactly the boundary where you specify mem= (to get a zero-sized entry),
and for the legacy_init_iomem_resources() loop to skip that resource (which
only happens at exactly 4G).

I think the killing zero-sized e820 entry is the easiest way to fix this.

[PATCH] SELinux: canonicalize getxattr()

This patch allows SELinux to canonicalize the value returned from
getxattr() via the security_inode_getsecurity() hook, which is called after
the fs level getxattr() function.

The purpose of this is to allow the in-core security context for an inode
to override the on-disk value.  This could happen in cases such as
upgrading a system to a different labeling form (e.g.  standard SELinux to
MLS) without needing to do a full relabel of the filesystem.

In such cases, we want getxattr() to return the canonical security context
that the kernel is using rather than what is stored on disk.

The implementation hooks into the inode_getsecurity(), adding another
parameter to indicate the result of the preceding fs-level getxattr() call,
so that SELinux knows whether to compare a value obtained from disk with
the kernel value.

We also now allow getxattr() to work for mountpoint labeled filesystems
(i.e.  mount with option context=foo_t), as we are able to return the
kernel value to the user.

The second argument to ata_qc_complete() was being used for two
purposes: communicate the ATA Status register to the completion
function, and indicate an error.  On legacy PCI IDE hardware, the latter

often completely emulated a Status register value, passing ATA_ERR as an
indication that something went wrong.

Now that previous code changes have eliminated the need to use drv_stat
arg to communicate the ATA Status register value, we can convert it to a
mask of possible error classes.

This will lead to more flexible error handling in the future.

move EXPORT_SYMBOL(filemap_populate) to the proper place: just after
function itself: it's easy to miss that function is exported otherwise.

[PATCH] mm: wider use of for_each_*cpu()

In 'mm' change the explicit use of a for-loop using NR_CPUS into the
general for_each_cpu() constructs.  This widens the scope of potential
future optimizations of the general constructs, as well as takes advantage
of the existing optimizations of first_cpu() and next_cpu(), which is
advantageous when the true CPU count is much smaller than NR_CPUS.

13 years ago[PATCH] Remove policy contextualization from mbind
Christoph Lameter [Sun, 30 Oct 2005 01:17:00 +0000]
[PATCH] Remove policy contextualization from mbind

Policy contextualization is only useful for task based policies and not for
vma based policies.  It may be useful to define allowed nodes that are not
accessible from this thread because other threads may have access to these
nodes.  Without this patch strange memory policy situations may cause an
application to fail with out of memory.

Example:

Let's say we have two threads A and B that share the same address space and
a huge array computational array X.

Thread A is restricted by its cpuset to nodes 0 and 1 and thread B is
restricted by its cpuset to nodes 2 and 3.

Thread A now wants to restrict allocations to the first node and thus
applies a BIND policy on X to node 0 and 2.  The cpuset limits this to node
0.  Thus pages for X must be allocated on node 0 now.

Thread B now touches a page that has never been used in X and faults in a
page.  According to the BIND policy of the vma for X the page must be
allocated on page 0.  However, the cpuset of B does not allow allocation on
0 and 1.  Now the application fails in alloc_pages with out of memory.

13 years ago[PATCH] Implement sys_* do_* layering in the memory policy layer.
Christoph Lameter [Sun, 30 Oct 2005 01:16:59 +0000]
[PATCH] Implement sys_* do_* layering in the memory policy layer.

- Do a separation between do_xxx and sys_xxx functions. sys_xxx functions
  take variable sized bitmaps from user space as arguments. do_xxx functions
  take fixed sized nodemask_t as arguments and may be used from inside the
  kernel. Doing so simplifies the initialization code. There is no
  fs = kernel_ds assumption anymore.

- Split up get_nodes into get_nodes (which gets the node list) and
  contextualize_policy which restricts the nodes to those accessible
  to the task and updates cpusets.

- Add comments explaining limitations of bind policy

[PATCH] memory hotplug: move section_mem_map alloc to sparse.c

This basically keeps up from having to extern __kmalloc_section_memmap().

The vaddr_in_vmalloc_area() helper could go in a vmalloc header, but that
header gets hard to work with, because it needs some arch-specific macros.
Just stick it in here for now, instead of creating another header.
