ISDN, Gigaset: Fix memory leak in do_disconnect_req()

Hi,

In drivers/isdn/gigaset/capi.c::do_disconnect_req() we will leak the
memory allocated (with kmalloc) to 'b3cmsg' if the call to alloc_skb()
fails.

...
b3cmsg = kmalloc(sizeof(*b3cmsg), GFP_KERNEL);
allocation here ------^
if (!b3cmsg) {
dev_err(cs->dev, "%s: out of memory\n", __func__);
send_conf(iif, ap, skb, CAPI_MSGOSRESOURCEERR);
return;
}
capi_cmsg_header(b3cmsg, ap->id, CAPI_DISCONNECT_B3, CAPI_IND,
 ap->nextMessageNumber++,
 cmsg->adr.adrPLCI | (1 << 16));
b3cmsg->Reason_B3 = CapiProtocolErrorLayer1;
b3skb = alloc_skb(CAPI_DISCONNECT_B3_IND_BASELEN, GFP_KERNEL);
if (b3skb == NULL) {
dev_err(cs->dev, "%s: out of memory\n", __func__);
send_conf(iif, ap, skb, CAPI_MSGOSRESOURCEERR);
return;
leak here ------^
...

This leak is easily fixed by just kfree()'ing the memory allocated to
'b3cmsg' right before we return. The following patch does that.

CAN: Use inode instead of kernel address for /proc file

Since the socket address is just being used as a unique identifier, its

ppp: allow disabling multilink protocol ID compression

Linux would not connect to other router running old version Cisco IOS (12.0).
This is most likely a bug in that version of IOS, since it is fixed
in later versions. As a workaround this patch allows a module parameter
to be set to disable compressing the protocol ID.

See: https://bugzilla.vyatta.com/show_bug.cgi?id=3979

RFC 1990 allows an implementation to formulate MP fragments as if protocol
compression had been negotiated.  This allows us to always send compressed
protocol IDs.  But some implementations don't accept MP fragments with
compressed protocol IDs.  This parameter allows us to interoperate with
them.  The default value of the configurable parameter is the same as the
current behavior:  protocol compression is enabled.  If protocol compression
is disabled we will not send compressed protocol IDs.

This is based on an earlier patch by Bob Gilligan (using a sysctl).
Module parameter is writable to allow for enabling even if ppp
is already loaded for other uses.

8 years agoueagle-atm: fix PHY signal initialization race
Dan Williams [Sun, 19 Dec 2010 08:17:50 +0000]
ueagle-atm: fix PHY signal initialization race

A race exists when initializing ueagle-atm devices where the generic atm
device may not yet be created before the driver attempts to initialize
it's PHY signal state, which checks whether the atm device has been
created or not.  This often causes the sysfs 'carrier' attribute to be
'1' even though no signal has actually been found.

      usbatm_atm_init                       uea_start_reset
         atm_dev_register                      UPDATE_ATM_SIGNAL

UPDATE_ATM_SIGNAL checks whether the ATM device has been created and if
not, will not update the PHY signal state.  Because of the race that
does not always happen in time, and the PHY signal state remains
ATM_PHY_SIG_FOUND even though no signal exists.

To fix the race, just create the kthread during initialization, and only
after initialization is complete, start the thread that reboots the
device and initializes PHY state.

libata: issue DIPM enable commands with LPM state updated

Low level drivers may behave differently depending on the current
link->lpm_policy.  During ata_eh_set_lpm(), DIPM enable commands are
issued after the successful completion of ap->ops->set_lpm(), which
means that the controller is already in the target state.  This causes
DIPM enable commands to be processed with mismatching controller power
state and link->lpm_policy value.

In ahci, link->lpm_policy is used to ignore certain PHY events if LPM
is enabled; however, as DIPM commands are issued with stale
link->lpm_policy, they sometimes end up triggering these conditions
and get aborted leading to LPM configuration failure.

Fix it by updating link->lpm_policy before issuing DIPM enable
commands.

libata: no special completion processing for EH commands

ata_qc_complete() contains special handling for certain commands.  For
example, it schedules EH for device revalidation after certain
configurations are changed.  These shouldn't be applied to EH
commands but they were.

In most cases, it doesn't cause an actual problem because EH doesn't
issue any command which would trigger special handling; however, ACPI
can issue such commands via _GTF which can cause weird interactions.

Restructure ata_qc_complete() such that EH commands are always passed
on to __ata_qc_complete().

Andres Salomon [Tue, 21 Dec 2010 21:04:52 +0000]
cs5535-gpio: handle GPIO regs where higher (clear) bits are set

The default for non-READ_BACK GPIO regs is to have the clear bits set;
this means that our original errata fix was too simplistic.  This
changes it to the following behavior:

 - when setting GPIOs, ignore the higher order bits (they're for
   clearing, we don't need to care about them).

 - when clearing GPIOs, keep all the bits, but unset (via XOR) the
   lower order bit that negates the clear bit that we care about.  That
   is, if we're clearing GPIO 26 (val = 0x04000000), we first XOR what's
   currently in the register with 0x0400 (GPIO 26's SET bit), and then
   OR that with the GPIO 26's CLEAR bit.

Andres Salomon [Tue, 21 Dec 2010 21:04:42 +0000]

The edge detect status GPIOs function differently from the other atomic
model CS5536 GPIO registers; writing 1 to the high bits clears the GPIO,
but writing 1 to the lower bits also clears the bit.

This means that read-modify-write doesn't actually work for it, so don't

8 years agotaskstats: pad taskstats netlink response for aligment issues on ia64
Jeff Mahoney [Wed, 22 Dec 2010 01:24:30 +0000]
taskstats: pad taskstats netlink response for aligment issues on ia64

The taskstats structure is internally aligned on 8 byte boundaries but the
layout of the aggregrate reply, with two NLA headers and the pid (each 4
bytes), actually force the entire structure to be unaligned.  This causes
the kernel to issue unaligned access warnings on some architectures like
ia64.  Unfortunately, some software out there doesn't properly unroll the
NLA packet and assumes that the start of the taskstats structure will
always be 20 bytes from the start of the netlink payload.  Aligning the
start of the taskstats structure breaks this software, which we don't
want.  So, for now the alignment only happens on architectures that
require it and those users will have to update to fixed versions of those
packages.  Space is reserved in the packet only when needed.  This ifdef
should be removed in several years e.g.  2012 once we can be confident
that fixed versions are installed on most systems.  We add the padding
before the aggregate since the aggregate is already a defined type.

Commit 85893120 ("delayacct: align to 8 byte boundary on 64-bit systems")
previously addressed the alignment issues by padding out the pid field.
This was supposed to be a compatible change but the circumstances
described above mean that it wasn't.  This patch backs out that change,
since it was a hack, and introduces a new NULL attribute type to provide
the padding.  Padding the response with 4 bytes avoids allocating an
aligned taskstats structure and copying it back.  Since the structure
weighs in at 328 bytes, it's too big to do it on the stack.

8 years agoinclude/linux/unaligned: pack the whole struct rather than just the field
Will Newton [Wed, 22 Dec 2010 01:24:29 +0000]
include/linux/unaligned: pack the whole struct rather than just the field

The current packed struct implementation of unaligned access adds the
packed attribute only to the field within the unaligned struct rather than
to the struct as a whole.  This is not sufficient to enforce proper
behaviour on architectures with a default struct alignment of more than
one byte.

For example, the current implementation of __get_unaligned_cpu16 when
compiled for arm with gcc -O1 -mstructure-size-boundary=32 assumes the
struct is on a 4 byte boundary so performs the load of the 16bit packed
field as if it were on a 4 byte boundary:

__get_unaligned_cpu16:
        ldrh    r0, [r0, #0]
        bx      lr

Moving the packed attribute to the struct rather than the field causes the
proper unaligned access code to be generated:

__get_unaligned_cpu16:
ldrb r3, [r0, #0] @ zero_extendqisi2
ldrb r0, [r0, #1] @ zero_extendqisi2
orr r0, r3, r0, asl #8
bx lr

8 years agologfs: fix "Kernel BUG at readwrite.c:1193"
Prasad Joshi [Wed, 22 Dec 2010 01:24:20 +0000]
logfs: fix "Kernel BUG at readwrite.c:1193"

This happens when __logfs_create() tries to write a new inode to the disk
which is full.

__logfs_create() associates the transaction pointer with inode.  During
the logfs_write_inode() function call chain this transaction pointer is
moved from inode to page->private using function move_inode_to_page
(do_write_inode() -> inode_to_page() -> move_inode_to_page)

When the write inode fails, the transaction is aborted and iput is called
on the failed inode.  During delete_inode the same transaction pointer
associated with the page is getting used.  Thus causing kernel BUG.

The patch checks for error in write_inode() and restores the page->private
to NULL.

mm: vmscan: tracepoint: account for scanned pages similarly for both ftrace and vmstat

When correlating ftrace results with /proc/vmstat, I noticed that the
reporting scripts value for "pages scanned" differed significantly.  Both
values were "right" depending on how you look at it.

The difference is due to vmstat only counting scanning of the inactive
list towards pages scanned.  The analysis script for the tracepoint counts
active and inactive list yielding a far higher value than vmstat.  The
resulting scanning/reclaim ratio looks much worse.  The tracepoint is ok
but this patch updates the reporting script so that the report values for
scanned are similar to vmstat.

8 years agonet: Fix range checks in tcf_valid_offset().
David S. Miller [Tue, 21 Dec 2010 20:43:16 +0000]
net: Fix range checks in tcf_valid_offset().

This function has three bugs:

1) The offset should be valid most of the time, this is just
   a sanity check, therefore we should use "likely" not "unlikely"

2) This is the only place where we can check for arithmetic overflow
   of the pointer plus the length.

3) The existing range checks are off by one, the valid range is
   skb->head to skb_tail_pointer(), inclusive.

Based almost entirely upon a patch by Ralph Loader.

net_sched: sch_sfq: fix allot handling

When deploying SFQ/IFB here at work, I found the allot management was
pretty wrong in sfq, even changing allot from short to int...

We should init allot for each new flow, not using a previous value found
in slot.

Before patch, I saw bursts of several packets per flow, apparently
denying the default "quantum 1514" limit I had on my SFQ class.

class sfq 11:1 parent 11:
 (dropped 0, overlimits 0 requeues 0)
 backlog 0b 7p requeues 0
 allot 11546

class sfq 11:46 parent 11:
 (dropped 0, overlimits 0 requeues 0)
 backlog 0b 1p requeues 0
 allot -23873

class sfq 11:78 parent 11:
 (dropped 0, overlimits 0 requeues 0)
 backlog 0b 5p requeues 0
 allot 11393

After patch, better fairness among each flow, allot limit being
respected, allot is positive :

class sfq 11:e parent 11:
 (dropped 0, overlimits 0 requeues 86)
 backlog 0b 3p requeues 86
 allot 596
