Eric Dumazet [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:38:44 +0000]
[PATCH] rcu: add a prefetch() in rcu_do_batch()

On some workloads, (for example when lot of close() syscalls are done), RCU
qlen can be quite large, and RCU heads are no longer in cpu cache when
rcu_do_batch() is called.

This patch adds a prefetch() in rcu_do_batch() to give CPU a hint to bring
back cache lines containing 'struct rcu_head's.

Most list manipulations macros include prefetch(), but not open coded ones
(at least with current C compilers :) )

I got a nice speedup on a trivial benchmark (3.48 us per iteration instead
of 3.95 us on a 1.6 GHz Pentium-M)

while (1) { pipe(p); close(fd[0]); close(fd[1]);}

[PATCH] add rtc-omap driver

This creates a new RTC-framework driver for the RTC/calendar module found
in various OMAP1 chips.  (OMAP2 and OMAP3 use external RTCs, like those in
TI's multifunction PM companion chips.) It's been in the Linux-OMAP tree
for several months now, and other trees before that, so it's quite stable.
The most notable issue is that the OMAP IRQ code doesn't yet support the
RTC IRQ as a wakeup event.  Once that's fixed, a patch will be needed.

Masami Hiramatsu [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:38:11 +0000]
[PATCH] kprobes: enable booster on the preemptible kernel

When we are unregistering a kprobe-booster, we can't release its
instruction buffer immediately on the preemptive kernel, because some
processes might be preempted on the buffer.  The freeze_processes() and
thaw_processes() functions can clean most of processes up from the buffer.
There are still some non-frozen threads who have the PF_NOFREEZE flag.  If
those threads are sleeping (not preempted) at the known place outside the
buffer, we can ensure safety of freeing.

However, the processing of this check routine takes a long time.  So, this
patch introduces the garbage collection mechanism of insn_slot.  It also
introduces the "dirty" flag to free_insn_slot because of efficiency.

The "clean" instruction slots (dirty flag is cleared) are released
immediately.  But the "dirty" slots which are used by boosted kprobes, are
marked as garbages.  collect_garbage_slots() will be invoked to release
"dirty" slots if there are more than INSNS_PER_PAGE garbage slots or if
there are no unused slots.

12 years ago[PATCH] Fix the size limit of compat space msgsize
suzuki [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:37:48 +0000]
[PATCH] Fix the size limit of compat space msgsize

Currently we allocate 64k space on the user stack and use it the msgbuf for
sys_{msgrcv,msgsnd} for compat and the results are later copied in user [
by copy_in_user].  This patch introduces helper routines for
sys_{msgrcv,msgsnd} as below:

do_msgsnd() : Accepts the mtype and user space ptr to the buffer along with
the msqid and msgflg.

do_msgrcv() : Accepts a kernel space ptr to mtype and a userspace ptr to
the buffer.  The mtype has to be copied back the user space msgbuf by the
caller.

These changes avoid the need to allocate the msgsize on the userspace (
thus removing the size limt ) and the overhead of an extra copy_in_user().

12 years ago[PATCH] PCEngines WRAP LED Support
Kristian Kielhofner [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:37:28 +0000]
[PATCH] PCEngines WRAP LED Support

A driver for the PCEngines WRAP boards (http://www.pcengines.ch), which are
very similar to the Soekris net4801 (same NS SC1100 geode reference
design).

The LEDs on the WRAP are on different GPIO lines and I have modified and
copied the net48xx error led support for this.  It also includes support
for an "extra" led (in addition to error).  The three LEDs on the WRAP are
at GPIO lines 2,3,18 (WRAP LEDs from left to right).  This driver gives
access to the second and third LEDs by twiddling GPIO lines 3 & 18.

Because these boards are so similar to the net48xx, I basically sed-ed that
driver to form the basis for leds-wrap.c.  The only changes from
leds-net48xx.c are:

 - #define WRAP_EXTRA_LED_GPIO

 - name changes

 - duplicate relevant sections to provide support for the "extra" led

 - reverse the various *_led_set values.  The WRAP is "backwards" from the
   net48xx, and these needed to be updated for that.

[PATCH] HZ: 300Hz support

Fix two things.  Firstly the unit is "Hz" not "HZ".  Secondly it is useful
to have 300Hz support when doing multimedia work.  250 is fine for us in
Europe but the US frame rate is 30fps (29.99 blah for pedants).  300 gives
us a tick divisible by both 25 and 30, and for interlace work 50 and 60.
It's also giving similar performance to 250Hz.

I'd argue we should remove 250 and add 300, but that might be excess
disruption for now.

Steve Grubb's fzfuzzer tool (http://people.redhat.com/sgrubb/files/
fsfuzzer-0.6.tar.gz) generates corrupt Cramfs filesystems which cause
Cramfs to kernel oops in cramfs_uncompress_block().  The cause of the oops
is an unchecked corrupted block length field read by cramfs_readpage().

block length field is sensible.  The (PAGE_CACHE_SIZE << 1) size check is
intentional, even though the uncompressed data is not going to be larger
than PAGE_CACHE_SIZE, gzip sometimes generates compressed data larger than
the original source data.  Mkcramfs checks that the compressed size is
always less than or equal to PAGE_CACHE_SIZE << 1.  Of course Cramfs could
use the original uncompressed data in this case, but it doesn't.

cpus on a large system.  The kernel isolcpus code would not need any
changing to use this feature.  To use it, the change would be in the
command line format for 'isolcpus='
Format:
<cpu number>,...,<cpu number>

12 years ago[PATCH] Correct misc_register return code handling in several drivers
Neil Horman [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:37:08 +0000]
[PATCH] Correct misc_register return code handling in several drivers

Clean up several code points in which the return code from misc_register is
not handled properly.

Several modules failed to deregister various hooks when misc_register fails,
and this patch cleans them up.  Also there are a few modules that legitimately
don't care about the failure status of misc register.  These drivers however
unilaterally call misc_deregister on module unload.

Since misc_register doesn't initialize the list_head in the init_routine if it
fails, the deregister operation is at risk for oopsing when list_del is
called.  The initial solution was to manually init the list in the miscdev
structure in each of those modules, but the consensus in this thread was to
consolodate and do that universally inside misc_register.

The two on-board serial UARTs were being detected along with the first two
Exar UARTs.  The last two Exar UARTs were not showing up and neither was the

[PATCH] Compile-time check re world-writeable module params

One of the mistakes a module_param() user can make is to supply default
value of module parameter as the last argument.  module_param() accepts
permissions instead.  If default value is, say, 3 (-------wx), parameter
becomes world-writeable.

So far, the only remedy was to apply grep(1) and read drivers submitted
to -mm. BTDT.

With this patch applied, compiler will finally do some job.

*) bounds checking on permissions
*) world-writeable bit checking on permissions
*) compile breakage if checks trigger

First version of this check (only "& 2" part) directly caught 4 out of 7
places during my last grep.

nla_put() in taskstat.c can fail only if the 'size' argument of alloc_skb()
was not right. This is a kernel bug, we should not hide it. So add 'BUG()'
on error path and check for 'na == NULL'.

So we can remove 'genlmsg_cancel()' calls and 'void *reply' (saves 227 bytes).

12 years ago[PATCH] taskstats: use nla_reserve() for reply assembling
Oleg Nesterov [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:36:54 +0000]
[PATCH] taskstats: use nla_reserve() for reply assembling

Currently taskstats_user_cmd()/taskstats_exit() do:

1) allocate stats
2) fill stats
3) make a temporary copy on stack (236 bytes)
4) copy that copy to skb
5) free stats

With the help of nla_reserve() we can operate on skb->data directly,
thus avoiding all these steps except 2).

So, before this patch:

// copy *stats to skb->data
int mk_reply(skb, ..., struct taskstats *stats);

fill_pid(stats);
mk_reply(skb, ..., stats);

After:
// return a pointer to skb->data
struct taskstats *mk_reply(skb, ...);

stat = mk_reply(skb, ...);
fill_pid(stats);

Shrinks taskatsks.o by 162 bytes.

A stupid benchmark (send one million TASKSTATS_CMD_ATTR_PID) shows the

real user sys
before:
4.02 0.06 3.96
4.02 0.04 3.98
4.02 0.04 3.97
after:
3.86 0.08 3.78
3.88 0.10 3.77
3.89 0.09 3.80

but this looks suspiciously good.

Roland McGrath [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:36:34 +0000]
[PATCH] Disable CLONE_CHILD_CLEARTID for abnormal exit

The CLONE_CHILD_CLEARTID flag is used by NPTL to have its threads
communicate via memory/futex when they exit, so pthread_join can
synchronize using a simple futex wait.  The word of user memory where NPTL
stores a thread's own TID is what it passes; this gets reset to zero at
thread exit.

It is not desireable to touch this user memory when threads are dying due
to a fatal signal.  A core dump is more usefully representative of the
dying program state if the threads live at the time of the crash have their
NPTL data structures unperturbed.  The userland expectation of
CLONE_CHILD_CLEARTID has only ever been that it works for a thread making
an _exit system call.

12 years ago[PATCH] handle ext4 directory corruption better
Eric Sandeen [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:36:28 +0000]
[PATCH] handle ext4 directory corruption better

I've been using Steve Grubb's purely evil "fsfuzzer" tool, at
http://people.redhat.com/sgrubb/files/fsfuzzer-0.4.tar.gz

Basically it makes a filesystem, splats some random bits over it, then
tries to mount it and do some simple filesystem actions.

At best, the filesystem catches the corruption gracefully.  At worst,
things spin out of control.

As you might guess, we found a couple places in ext4 where things spin out
of control :)

First, we had a corrupted directory that was never checked for
consistency...  it was corrupt, and pointed to another bad "entry" of
length 0.  The for() loop looped forever, since the length of
ext4_next_entry(de) was 0, and we kept looking at the same pointer over and
over and over and over...  I modeled this check and subsequent action on
what is done for other directory types in ext4_readdir...

(adding this check adds some computational expense; I am testing a followup
patch to reduce the number of times we check and re-check these directory
entries, in all cases.  Thanks for the idea, Andreas).

Next we had a root directory inode which had a corrupted size, claimed to
be > 200M on a 4M filesystem.  There was only really 1 block in the
directory, but because the size was so large, readdir kept coming back for
more, spewing thousands of printk's along the way.

Per Andreas' suggestion, if we're in this read error condition and we're
trying to read an offset which is greater than i_blocks worth of bytes,
stop trying, and break out of the loop.

With these two changes fsfuzz test survives quite well on ext4.

[PATCH] paride_register(): shuffle return values

paride_register() returns 1 on success, 0 on failure and module init
code looks like

static int __init foo_init(void)
{
return paride_register(&foo) - 1;
}

which is not what one get used to. Converted to usual 0/-E convention.

In case of kbic driver, unwind registration. It was just

return (paride_register(&k951)||paride_register(&k971))-1;
