14 years ago[PATCH] ext2 corruption - regression between 2.6.9 and 2.6.10
Bernard Blackham [Sat, 16 Apr 2005 22:25:45 +0000]
[PATCH] ext2 corruption - regression between 2.6.9 and 2.6.10

Whilst trying to stress test a Promise SX8 card, we stumbled across
some nasty filesystem corruption in ext2. Our tests involved
creating an ext2 partition, mounting, running several concurrent
fsx's over it, umounting, and fsck'ing, all scripted[1]. The fsck
would always return with errors.

This regression was traced back to a change between 2.6.9 and
2.6.10, which moves the functionality of ext2_put_inode into
ext2_clear_inode.  The attached patch reverses this change, and
eliminated the source of corruption.

Mingming Cao <cmm@us.ibm.com> said:

I think his patch for ext2 is correct.  The corruption on ext3 is not the same
issue he saw on ext2.  I believe that's the race between discard reservation
and reservation in-use that we already fixed it in 2.6.12- rc1.

For the problem related to ext2, at the time when we design reservation for
ext3, we decide we only need to discard the reservation at the last file
close, so we have ext3_discard_reservation on iput_final- >ext3_clear_inode.

The ext2 handle discard preallocation differently at that time, it discard the
preallocation at each iput(), not in input_final(), so we think it's
unnecessary to thrash it so frequently, and the right thing to do, as we did
for ext3 reservation, discard preallocation on last iput().  So we moved the
ext2_discard_preallocation from ext2_put_inode(0 to ext2_clear_inode.

Since ext2 preallocation is doing pre-allocation on disk, so it is possible
that at the unmount time, someone is still hold the reference of the inode, so
the preallocation for a file is not discard yet, so we still mark those blocks
allocated on disk, while they are not actually in the inode's block map, so
fsck will catch/fix that error later.

This is not a issue for ext3, as ext3 reservation(pre-allocation) is done in
memory.

[PATCH] kernel/param.c: don't use .max when .num is NULL in param_array_set()

there seems to be a bug, at least for me, in kernel/param.c for arrays with
.num == NULL.  If .num == NULL, the function param_array_set() uses &.max
for the call to param_array(), wich alters the .max value to the number of
arguments.  The result is, you can't set more array arguments as the last
time you set the parameter.

example:

# a module 'example' with
# static int array[10] = { 0, };
# module_param_array(array, int, NULL, 0644);

$ insmod example.ko array=1,2,3
$ cat /sys/module/example/parameters/array
1,2,3
$ echo "4,3,2,1" > /sys/module/example/parameters/array

[PATCH] AYSNC IO using singals other than SIGIO

A question on sigwaitinfo based IO mechanism in multithreaded applications.

I am trying to use RT signals to notify me of IO events using RT signals
instead of SIGIO in a multithreaded applications.  I noticed that there was
some discussion on lkml during november 1999 with the subject of the
discussion as "Signal driven IO".  In the thread I noticed that RT signals
were being delivered to the worker thread.  I am running 2.6.10 kernel and
I am trying to use the very same mechanism and I find that only SIGIO being
propogated to the worker threads and RT signals only being propogated to
the main thread and not the worker threads where I actually want them to be
propogated too.  On further inspection I found that the following patch
which I have attached solves the problem.

I am not sure if this is a bug or feature in the kernel.

Roland McGrath <roland@redhat.com> said:

This relates only to fcntl F_SETSIG, which is a Linux extension.  So there is
no POSIX issue.  When changing various things like the normal SIGIO signalling
to do group signals, I was concerned strictly with the POSIX semantics and
generally avoided touching things in the domain of Linux inventions.  That's
why I didn't change this when I changed the call right next to it.  There is
no reason I can see that F_SETSIG-requested signals shouldn't use a group
signal like normal SIGIO does.  I'm happy to ACK this patch, there is nothing
wrong with its change to the semantics in my book.  But neither POSIX nor I
care a whit what F_SETSIG does.

[PATCH] possible use-after-free of bio

There is a possibility that a bio will be accessed after it has been freed
on SCSI.  It happens if you submit a bio with BIO_SYNC marked and the
auto-unplugging kicks the request_fn, SCSI re-enables interrupts in-between
so if the request completes between the add_request() in __make_request()
and the bio_sync() call, we could be looking at a dead bio.  It's a slim
race, but it has been triggered in the Real World.

So assign bio_sync() to a local variable instead.

  format is completely different on x86, x86_64 and we haven't heard of any
  x86 app breakage because of this issue. Grouping these fields will
  result in more or less common format on all architectures (ia64, x86 and
  x86_64) and will cause less confusion.

14 years ago[PATCH] x86_64: Switch SMP bootup over to new CPU hotplug state machine
Andi Kleen [Sat, 16 Apr 2005 22:25:19 +0000]
[PATCH] x86_64: Switch SMP bootup over to new CPU hotplug state machine

This will allow hotplug CPU in the future and in general cleans up a lot of
crufty code.  It also should plug some races that the old hackish way
introduces.  Remove one old race workaround in NMI watchdog setup that is not
needed anymore.

I removed the old total sum of bogomips reporting code.  The brag value of
BogoMips has been greatly devalued in the last years on the open market.

Real CPU hotplug will need some more work, but the infrastructure for it is
there now.

One drawback: the new TSC sync algorithm is less accurate than before.  The
old way of zeroing TSCs is too intrusive to do later.  Instead the TSC of the
BP is duplicated now, which is less accurate.

akpm:

- sync_tsc_bp_init seems to have the sense of `init' inverted.

- SPIN_LOCK_UNLOCKED is deprecated - use DEFINE_SPINLOCK.

Appended patch adds the support for Intel dual-core detection and displaying
the core related information in /proc/cpuinfo.

It adds two new fields "core id" and "cpu cores" to x86 /proc/cpuinfo and the
"core id" field for x86_64("cpu cores" field is already present in x86_64).

Number of processor cores in a die is detected using cpuid(4) and this is
documented in IA-32 Intel Architecture Software Developer's Manual (vol 2a)
(http://developer.intel.com/design/pentium4/manuals/index_new.htm#sdm_vol2a)

This patch also adds cpu_core_map similar to cpu_sibling_map.

Andi Kleen [Sat, 16 Apr 2005 22:25:13 +0000]
[PATCH] x86_64: Keep only a single debug notifier chain

Calling a notifier three times in the debug handler does not make much sense,
because a debugger can figure out the various conditions by itself.  Remove
the additional calls to DIE_DEBUG and DIE_DEBUGSTEP completely.

This matches what i386 does now.

This also makes sure interrupts are always still disabled when calling a
debugger, which prevents:

BUG: using smp_processor_id() in preemptible [00000001] code: tpopf/1470
caller is post_kprobe_handler+0x9/0x70

Call Trace:<ffffffff8024f10f>{smp_processor_id+191} <ffffffff80120e69>{post_kpro
be_handler+9}
<ffffffff80120f7a>{kprobe_exceptions_notify+58}
<ffffffff80144fc0>{notifier_call_chain+32} <ffffffff80110daf>{do_debug+335}
<ffffffff8010f513>{debug+127}  <EOE>

on preemptible debug kernels with kprobes when single stepping in user space.

This was probably a bug even on non preempt kernels, this function was
supposed to be running with interrupts off according to a comment there.

Note to third part debugger maintainers: please double check your debugger can
still single step.

Jason Davis [Sat, 16 Apr 2005 22:24:53 +0000]
[PATCH] x86_64 genapic update

x86_64 genapic mechanism should be aware of machines that use physical APIC
mode regardless of how many clusters/processors are detected.

ACPI 3.0 FADT makes this determination very simple by providing a feature
flag "force_apic_physical_destination_mode" to state whether the machine
unconditionally uses physical APIC mode.

Unisys' next generation x86_64 ES7000 will need to utilize this FADT
feature flag in order to boot the x86_64 kernel in the correct APIC mode.
This patch has been tested on both x86_64 commodity and ES7000 boxes.

defined, removes the extra copy of the same macro in

[PATCH] ppc64: remove -fno-omit-frame-pointer

During some code inspection using gcc 4.0 I noticed a stack frame was being
created for a number of functions that didnt require it.  For example:

c0000000000df944 <._spin_unlock>:
c0000000000df944:       fb e1 ff f0     std     r31,-16(r1)
c0000000000df948:       f8 21 ff c1     stdu    r1,-64(r1)
c0000000000df94c:       7c 3f 0b 78     mr      r31,r1
c0000000000df950:       7c 20 04 ac     lwsync
c0000000000df954:       e8 21 00 00     ld      r1,0(r1)
c0000000000df958:       38 00 00 00     li      r0,0
c0000000000df95c:       90 03 00 00     stw     r0,0(r3)
c0000000000df960:       eb e1 ff f0     ld      r31,-16(r1)
c0000000000df964:       4e 80 00 20     blr

It turns out we are adding -fno-omit-frame-pointer to ppc64 which is
causing the above behaviour.  Removing that flag results in much better
code:

c0000000000d5b30 <._spin_unlock>:
c0000000000d5b30:       7c 20 04 ac     lwsync
c0000000000d5b34:       38 00 00 00     li      r0,0
c0000000000d5b38:       90 03 00 00     stw     r0,0(r3)
c0000000000d5b3c:       4e 80 00 20     blr

We dont require a frame pointer to debug on ppc64, so remove it.

This patch reworks the way the ppc64 is mapped in user memory by the kernel
to make it more robust against possible collisions with executable
segments.  Instead of just whacking a VMA at 1Mb, I now use
get_unmapped_area() with a hint, and I moved the mapping of the vDSO to
after the mapping of the various ELF segments and of the interpreter, so
that conflicts get caught properly (it still has to be before
create_elf_tables since the later will fill the AT_SYSINFO_EHDR with the
proper address).

While I was at it, I also changed the 32 and 64 bits vDSO's to link at
their "natural" address of 1Mb instead of 0.  This is the address where
they are normally mapped in absence of conflict.  By doing so, it should be
possible to properly prelink one it's been verified to work on glibc.

Benjamin Herrenschmidt [Sat, 16 Apr 2005 22:24:32 +0000]
[PATCH] ppc64: very basic desktop g5 sound support

This patch hacks the current PowerMac Alsa driver to add some basic support
of analog sound output to some desktop G5s.  It has severe limitations
though:

 - Only 44100Khz 16 bits
 - Only work on G5 models using a TAS3004 analog code, that is early
   single CPU desktops and all dual CPU desktops at this date, but none
   of the more recent ones like iMac G5.
 - It does analog only, no digital/SPDIF support at all, no native
   AC3 support

Better support would require a complete rewrite of the driver (which I am
working on, but don't hold your breath), to properly support the diversity
of apple sound HW setup, including dual codecs, several i2s busses, all the
new codecs used in the new machines, proper clock switching with digital,
etc etc etc...

This patch applies on top of the other PowerMac sound patches I posted in
the past couple of days (new powerbook support and sleep fixes).

Note: This is a FAQ entry for PowerMac sound support with TI codecs: They
have a feature called "DRC" which is automatically enabled for the internal
speaker (at least when auto mute control is enabled) which will cause your
sound to fade out to nothing after half a second of playback if you don't
set a proper "DRC Range" in the mixer.  So if you have a problem like that,
check alsamixer and raise your DRC Range to something reasonable.

Note2: This patch will also add auto-mute of the speaker when line-out jack
is used on some earlier desktop G4s (and on the G5) in addition to the
headphone jack.  If that behaviour isn't what you want, just disable
auto-muting and use the manual mute controls in alsamixer.

This patch allows Kconfig to build the MV643xx ethernet driver on Pegasos
(CONFIG_PPC_MULTIPLATFORM) and adds what I think is a missing fix from
Dale's batch, that is remove SA_INTERRUPT and add SA_SHIRQ in there as the
interrupt is shared if I understand things correctly.

This patch restores the original behaviour of prep_pcibios_fixup() to only
call prep_pib_init() on machines with an openpic.  This allows the
Powerstack II Pro4000 to boot again.

[PATCH] ppc32: Fix building 32bit kernel for 64bit machines

When building a ppc32 MULTIPLATFORM kernel for a 64bit pmac, we try and
build certain files or use certain functions that make no sense in that
context.  This catches the last of these.

Giovambattista Pulcini [Sat, 16 Apr 2005 22:24:24 +0000]
[PATCH] ppc32: Fix a problem with NTP on !(chrp||gemini)

The following problem was found by Giovambattista Pulcini
<gpulcini@swintel.it>, who also provided a partial patch, and this has been
verified by our time guru Gabriel Paubert <paubert@iram.es>.

The problem is that in do_settimeofday() we always set time_state to
TIME_ERROR and except on two platforms, never re-set it.  This meant that
ntp_gettime() and ntp_adjtime() always returned TIME_ERROR, incorrectly.
Based on Gabriel's analysis, time_state is used for leap-second processing,
and ppc shouldn't be mucking with it.

[PATCH] ppc32: Fix mpc8xx watchdog

The CONFIG_8xx_WDT option got broken in the generic hardirq update as ppc32
had its own different request_irq that worked when other arches used
setup_irq.  This is the trivial fix for the problem.
