12 years agoAdd "run_scheduled_work()" workqueue function
Linus Torvalds [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 17:28:19 +0000]
Add "run_scheduled_work()" workqueue function

This allows workqueue users to run just their own pending work, rather
than wait for the whole workqueue to finish running.  This solves the
deadlock with networking libphy that was due to other workqueue entries
possibly needing a lock that was held by the routine that wanted to
flush its own work.

It's not wonderful: if you absolutely need to synchronize with the work
function having been executed, any user strictly speaking should have
its own completion tracking logic, since when we run things explicitly
by hand, the generic workqueue layer can no longer help us synchronize.

Also, this is strictly only usable for work that has been scheduled
without any delayed timers.  You can not mix the new interface with
schedule_delayed_work().

But it's better than what we had currently.

[PATCH] IPMI: Fix BT long busy

The IPMI BT subdriver has been patched to survive "long busy" timeouts seen
during firmware upgrades and resets.  The patch never returns the HOSED state,
synthesizes response messages with meaningful completion codes, and recovers
gracefully when the hardware finishes the long busy.  The subdriver now issues
a "Get BT Capabilities" command and properly uses those results.  More
informative completion codes are returned on error from transaction starts;
this logic was propogated to the KCS and SMIC subdrivers.  Finally, indent and
other style quirks were normalized.

Corey Minyard [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:41:00 +0000]
[PATCH] IPMI: Allow hot system interface remove

This modifies the IPMI driver so that a lower-level interface can be
dynamically removed while in use so it can support hot-removal of hardware.

It also adds the ability to specify and dynamically change the IPMI interface
the watchdog timer and the poweroff code use.

The only drawback with this approach is that s390 doesn't fully support

[PATCH] fs: make nls_cp936.c handle some U00XY characters and U20AC correctly

Twenty characters in cp936 are not correctly handled.  They're all in the
U00 plane.  nls_cp936 converts all U00XY to XY but this is not correct for
some characters.(e.g.  U00B7 -> A1A4, U00A8 -> A1A7).

This problem is fixed by generating u2c_00 based on all c2u_xx and changing
uni2char() to give U00 plane a special handling.  The "â\202¬"(U20AC,80 in
cp936) is also be handled properly.

12 years ago[PATCH] ext3/4: don't do orphan processing on readonly devices
Eric Sandeen [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:40:13 +0000]
[PATCH] ext3/4: don't do orphan processing on readonly devices

If you do something like:

  # touch foo
  # tail -f foo &
  # rm foo
  # <take snapshot>
  # <mount snapshot>

you'll panic, because ext3/4 tries to do orphan list processing on the
readonly snapshot device, and:

  kernel: journal commit I/O error
  kernel: Assertion failure in journal_flush_Rsmp_e2f189ce() at journal.c:1356: "!journal->j_checkpoint_transactions"
  kernel: Kernel panic: Fatal exception

for a truly readonly underlying device, it's reasonable and necessary
to just skip orphan list processing.

Andrew Morton [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:39:59 +0000]
[PATCH] gcc-4.1.0 is bust

Keith says

Compiling 2.6.19-rc6 with gcc version 4.1.0 (SUSE Linux), wait_hpet_tick is
optimized away to a never ending loop and the kernel hangs on boot in timer
setup.

0000001a <wait_hpet_tick>:
  1a:   55                      push   %ebp
  1b:   89 e5                   mov    %esp,%ebp
  1d:   eb fe                   jmp    1d <wait_hpet_tick+0x3>

This is not a problem with gcc 3.3.5.  Adding barrier() calls to
wait_hpet_tick does not help, making the variables volatile does.

And the consensus is that gcc-4.1.0 is busted.  Suse went and shipped
gcc-4.1.0 so we cannot ban it.  Add a warning.

[PATCH] amba-pl010: clear error flags on rx error

The pl010 primecell documentation specifies that an error indicated via RSR
should be cleared by a write to ECR.  We didn't do this, which was causing
errors to be re-reported on every call to pl010_rx_chars().

Doing a write to ECR once we detect an error appears to prevent the ep93xx

Zachary Amsden [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:39:39 +0000]
[PATCH] softirq: remove BUG_ONs which can incorrectly trigger

It is possible to have tasklets get scheduled before softirqd has had a chance
to spawn on all CPUs.  This is totally harmless; after success during action
CPU_UP_PREPARE, action CPU_ONLINE will be called, which immediately wakes
softirqd on the appropriate CPU to process the already pending tasklets.  So
there is no danger of having a missed wakeup for any tasklets that were
already pending.

In particular, i386 is affected by this during startup, and is visible when
using a very large initrd; during the time it takes for the initrd to be
decompressed, a timer IRQ can come in and schedule RCU callbacks.  It is also
possible that resending of a hardware IRQ via a softirq triggers the same bug.

Because of different timing conditions, this shows up in all emulators and
virtual machines tested, including Xen, VMware, Virtual PC, and Qemu.  It is
also possible to trigger on native hardware with a large enough initrd,
although I don't have a reliable case demonstrating that.

  =======================

and then deadlock comes.

The problem: autofs_fill_super() returns EINVAL to get_sb_nodev(), but
before that, it calls kill_anon_super() to destroy the superblock which
won't be needed.  This is however way too soon to call kill_anon_super(),
because get_sb_nodev() has to perform its own cleanup of the superblock
first (deactivate_super(), etc.).  The correct time to call
kill_anon_super() is in the autofs_kill_sb() callback, which is called by
deactivate_super() at proper time, when the superblock is ready to be
killed.

I can see the same faulty codepath also in autofs4.  This patch solves
issues in both filesystems in a same way - it postpones the
kill_anon_super() until the proper time is signalized by deactivate_super()
calling the kill_sb() callback.

Hisashi Hifumi [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:39:17 +0000]
[PATCH] jbd2: wait for already submitted t_sync_datalist buffer to complete

In the current jbd code, if a buffer on BJ_SyncData list is dirty and not
locked, the buffer is refiled to BJ_Locked list, submitted to the IO and
waited for IO completion.

But the fsstress test showed the case that when a buffer was already
submitted to the IO just before the buffer_dirty(bh) check, the buffer was
not waited for IO completion.

Following patch solves this problem.  If it is assumed that a buffer is
submitted to the IO before the buffer_dirty(bh) check and still being
written to disk, this buffer is refiled to BJ_Locked list.

12 years ago[PATCH] sysctl: string length calculated is wrong if it contains negative numbers
BP, Praveen [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:39:09 +0000]
[PATCH] sysctl: string length calculated is wrong if it contains negative numbers

In the functions do_proc_dointvec() and do_proc_doulongvec_minmax(),
there seems to be a bug in string length calculation if string contains
negative integer.

The console log given below explains the bug. Setting negative values
may not be a right thing to do for "console log level" but then the test
(given below) can be used to demonstrate the bug in the code.

# echo "-1 -1 -1 -123456" > /proc/sys/kernel/printk
# cat /proc/sys/kernel/printk
-1      -1      -1      -1234
#
# echo "-1 -1 -1 123456" > /proc/sys/kernel/printk
# cat /proc/sys/kernel/printk
-1      -1      -1      1234
#

(akpm: the bug is that 123456 gets truncated)

It works as expected if string contains all +ve integers

# echo "1 2 3 4" > /proc/sys/kernel/printk
# cat /proc/sys/kernel/printk
1       2       3       4

The patch given below fixes the issue.
