Update DMA-mapping documentation

A couple of updates haven't considered whether the documentation makes
sense as a whole any more.  Three changes here:

 - Remove the reference to the "DAC Addressing for Address Space Hungry
   Devices" section which was deleted by Jan Beulich.
 - Remove the comment about DMA_24BIT_MASK which became obsolete when
   Tobias Klauser changed the code to actually use DMA_24BIT_MASK.
 - Remove the section "64-bit DMA and DAC cycle support" since it's
   fully covered above, and contains a reference to the section deleted
   by Jan.

kernel-doc: fix doc blocks and html

Johannes Berg reports (Thanks!) that &struct names are not highlighted in
html output format when they are inside a DOC: block.

DOC: blocks were not escaped thru xml_escape() like other kernel-doc
comments were.  Fixed that.

However, that left a problem with <p> ($blankline_html) being processed
thru xml_escape(), converting it to &lt;p&gt;, which isn't good for the
generated html output (the <p> should remain unchanged), so this patch also
introduces the notion of "local" kernel-doc meta-characters
('\\\\mnemonic:'), which are converted to html just before writing the
stream to its output file.

Please report any problems that you (anyone) see in "highlighting" in any
output mode (text, man, html, xml).

First of all, this makes the structure jumping look a little bit cleaner.  So,
this stands alone as a tiny cleanup.  But, we also need 'mnt' by itself a few

11 years agor/o bind mounts: rearrange may_open() to be r/o friendly
Dave Hansen [Wed, 17 Oct 2007 06:31:14 +0000]
r/o bind mounts: rearrange may_open() to be r/o friendly

may_open() calls vfs_permission() before it does checks for IS_RDONLY(inode).
It checks _again_ inside of vfs_permission().

The check inside of vfs_permission() is going away eventually.  With the
mnt_want/drop_write() functions, all of the r/o checks (except for this one)
are consistently done before calling permission().  Because of this, I'd like
to use permission() to hold a debugging check to make sure that the
mnt_want/drop_write() calls are actually being made.

So, to do this:
1. remove the IS_RDONLY() check from permission()
2. enforce that you must mnt_want_write() before
   even calling permission()
3. actually add the debugging check to permission()

We need to rearrange may_open() to do r/o checks before calling permission().
Here's the patch.

11 years agor/o bind mounts: filesystem helpers for custom 'struct file's
Dave Hansen [Wed, 17 Oct 2007 06:31:13 +0000]
r/o bind mounts: filesystem helpers for custom 'struct file's

Why do we need r/o bind mounts?

This feature allows a read-only view into a read-write filesystem.  In the
process of doing that, it also provides infrastructure for keeping track of
the number of writers to any given mount.

This has a number of uses.  It allows chroots to have parts of filesystems
writable.  It will be useful for containers in the future because users may
have root inside a container, but should not be allowed to write to
somefilesystems.  This also replaces patches that vserver has had out of the
tree for several years.

It allows security enhancement by making sure that parts of your filesystem
read-only (such as when you don't trust your FTP server), when you don't want
to have entire new filesystems mounted, or when you want atime selectively
updated.  I've been using the following script to test that the feature is
working as desired.  It takes a directory and makes a regular bind and a r/o
bind mount of it.  It then performs some normal filesystem operations on the
three directories, including ones that are expected to fail, like creating a
file on the r/o mount.

This patch:

Some filesystems forego the vfs and may_open() and create their own 'struct
file's.

This patch creates a couple of helper functions which can be used by these
filesystems, and will provide a unified place which the r/o bind mount code
may patch.

Also, rename an existing, static-scope init_file() to a less generic name.

11 years agoPNP: don't fail device init if no DMA channel available
Jan Beulich [Wed, 17 Oct 2007 06:31:07 +0000]
PNP: don't fail device init if no DMA channel available

Most drivers for devices supporting ISA DMA can operate without DMA as well
(falling back zo PIO).  Thus it seems inappropriate for PNP to fail device
initialization in case none of the possible DMA channels are available.
Instead, it should be left to the driver to decide what to do if
request_dma() fails.

The patch at once adjusts the code to account for the fact that
pnp_assign_dma() now doesn't need to report failure anymore.

11 years agofuse: fix permission checking on sticky directories
Miklos Szeredi [Wed, 17 Oct 2007 06:31:03 +0000]
fuse: fix permission checking on sticky directories

The VFS checks sticky bits on the parent directory even if the filesystem
defines it's own ->permission().  In some situations (sshfs, mountlo, etc) the
user does have permission to delete a file even if the attribute based
checking would not allow it.

So work around this by storing the permission bits separately and returning
them in stat(), but cutting the permission bits off from inode->i_mode.

This is slightly hackish, but it's probably not worth it to add new
infrastructure in VFS and a slight performance penalty for all filesystems,
just for the sake of fuse.

md: software Raid autodetect dev list not array

In current release kernels the md module (Software RAID) uses a static
array (dev_t[128]) to store partition/device info temporarily for
autostart.

I discovered this (and that the devices are added as disks/partitions are
discovered at boot) while I was debugging why only one of my MD arrays would
come up whole, while all the others were short a disk.

I eventually discovered that it was enumerating through all of 9 of my 11 hds
(2 had only 4 partitions apiece) while the other 9 have 15 partitions (I
wanted 64 per drive...).  The last partition of the 8th drive in my 9 drive
raid 5 sets wasn't added, thus making the final md array short both a parity
and data disk, and it was started later, elsewhere.

This patch replaces that static array with a list.

11 years agowriteback: introduce writeback_control.more_io to indicate more io
Fengguang Wu [Wed, 17 Oct 2007 06:30:43 +0000]
writeback: introduce writeback_control.more_io to indicate more io

After making dirty a 100M file, the normal behavior is to start the writeback
for all data after 30s delays.  But sometimes the following happens instead:

- after 30s:    ~4M
- after 5s:     ~4M
- after 5s:     all remaining 92M

Some analyze shows that the internal io dispatch queues goes like this:

s_io            s_more_io
-------------------------
1) 100M,1K         0
2) 1K              96M
3) 0               96M

1) initial state with a 100M file and a 1K file
2) 4M written, nr_to_write <= 0, so write more
3) 1K written, nr_to_write > 0, no more writes(BUG)

nr_to_write > 0 in (3) fools the upper layer to think that data have all been
written out.  The big dirty file is actually still sitting in s_more_io.  We
cannot simply splice s_more_io back to s_io as soon as s_io becomes empty, and
let the loop in generic_sync_sb_inodes() continue: this may starve newly
expired inodes in s_dirty.  It is also not an option to draw inodes from both
s_more_io and s_dirty, an let the loop go on: this might lead to live locks,
and might also starve other superblocks in sync time(well kupdate may still
starve some superblocks, that's another bug).

We have to return when a full scan of s_io completes.  So nr_to_write > 0 does
not necessarily mean that "all data are written".  This patch introduces a
flag writeback_control.more_io to indicate this situation.  With it the big
dirty file no longer has to wait for the next kupdate invocation 5s later.

do not quite agree with each other. The page writeback should be skipped for
'locked buffer', but here it is 'clean buffer'!

This patch fixes this bug. Though I'm not sure why __block_write_full_page()
is called only to do nothing and who actually issued the writeback for us.

This is the two possible new behaviors after the patch:

1) pretty nice: wait 30s and write ALL:)
2) not so good:
- during the dd: ~16M
- after 30s:      ~4M
- after 5s:       ~4M
- after 5s:     ~176M

The next patch will fix case (2).

writeback: fix time ordering of the per superblock inode lists 8

Streamline the management of dirty inode lists and fix time ordering bugs.

The writeback logic used to move not-yet-expired dirty inodes from s_dirty to
s_io, *only to* move them back.  The move-inodes-back-and-forth thing is a
mess, which is eliminated by this patch.

The new scheme is:
- s_dirty acts as a time ordered io delaying queue;
- s_io/s_more_io together acts as an io dispatching queue.

On kupdate writeback, we pull some inodes from s_dirty to s_io at the start of
every full scan of s_io.  Otherwise  (i.e. for sync/throttle/background
writeback), we always pull from s_dirty on each run (a partial scan).

Note that the line
list_splice_init(&sb->s_more_io, &sb->s_io);
is moved to queue_io() to leave s_io empty. Otherwise a big dirtied file will
sit in s_io for a long time, preventing new expired inodes to get in.

11 years agowriteback: fix periodic superblock dirty inode flushing
Ken Chen [Wed, 17 Oct 2007 06:30:38 +0000]
writeback: fix periodic superblock dirty inode flushing

Current -mm tree has bucketful of bug fixes in periodic writeback path.
However, we still hit a glitch where dirty pages on a given inode aren't
completely flushed to the disk, and system will accumulate large amount of
dirty pages beyond what dirty_expire_interval is designed for.

The problem is __sync_single_inode() will move an inode to sb->s_dirty list
even when there are more pending dirty pages on that inode.  If there is
another inode with a small number of dirty pages, we hit a case where the loop
iteration in wb_kupdate() terminates prematurely because wbc.nr_to_write > 0.
Thus leaving the inode that has large amount of dirty pages behind and it has
to wait for another dirty_writeback_interval before we flush it again.  We
effectively only write out MAX_WRITEBACK_PAGES every dirty_writeback_interval.
If the rate of dirtying is sufficiently high, the system will start
accumulate a large number of dirty pages.

So fix it by having another sb->s_more_io list on which to park the inode
while we iterate through sb->s_io and to allow each dirty inode which resides
on that sb to have an equal chance of flushing some amount of dirty pages.

writeback: fix time ordering of the per superblock dirty inode lists 7

This one fixes four bugs.

There are a few situation in there where writeback decides it is going to skip
over a blockdev inode on the kernel-internal blockdev superblock.  It
presently does this by moving the blockdev inode onto the tail of the blockdev
superblock's s_dirty.  But

a) this screws up s_dirty's reverse-time-orderedness and

b) refiling the blockdev for writeback in another 30 second is rude.  We
   should try again sooner than that.

Fix all this up by using redirty_head(): move the blockdev inode onto the head
of the blockdev superblock's s_dirty list for prompt writeback.

11 years agowriteback: fix time ordering of the per superblock dirty inode lists 6
Andrew Morton [Wed, 17 Oct 2007 06:30:37 +0000]
writeback: fix time ordering of the per superblock dirty inode lists 6

Recycling the previous changelog:

  When the writeback function is operating in writeback-for-flushing mode
  (as opposed to writeback-for-integrity) and it encounters an I_LOCKed inode,
  it will skip writing that inode.  This is done for throughput and latency:
  move on to another inode rather than blocking for this one.

  Writeback skips this inode by moving it off s_io and onto s_dirty, so that
  writeback can proceed with the other inodes on s_io.

  However that inode movement can corrupt s_dirty's
  reverse-time-orderedness.  Fix that by using the new redirty_tail(), which
  will update the refiled inode's dirtied_when field.

  Note: the behaviour in here is a bit rude: if kupdate happens to come
  across a locked inode then it will defer writeback of that inode for another
  30 seconds.  We'll address that in the next patch.

Address that here.  What we do is to move the skipped inode to the _head_ of
s_dirty, immediately eligible for writeout again.  Instead of deferring that
writeout for another 30 seconds.

One would think that this might cause a livelock: we keep on trying to write
the same locked inode.  But it won't because:

a) if that was the case, it would _already_ be happening on the
   balance_dirty_pages codepath.  Because balance_dirty_pages() doesn't care
   about inode timestamps.

b) if we skipped this inode then we won't have done any writeback.  The
   higher-level writeback paths will see that wbc.nr_to_write didn't change
   and they'll then back off and take a nap.

11 years agowriteback: fix time ordering of the per superblock dirty inode lists 4
Andrew Morton [Wed, 17 Oct 2007 06:30:34 +0000]
writeback: fix time ordering of the per superblock dirty inode lists 4

When the kupdate function has tried to write back an expired inode it will
then check to see whether some of the inode's pages are still dirty.

This can happen when the filesystem decided to not write a page for some
reason.  But it does _not_ occur due to redirtyings: a redirtying will set
I_DIRTY_PAGES.

What we need to do here is to set I_DIRTY_PAGES to reflect reality and to then
put the inode onto the _head_ of s_dirty for consideration on the next kupdate
pass, in five seconds time.

Problem is, the code failed to modify the inode's timestamp when pushing the
inode onto thehead of s_dirty.

The patch:

If there are no other inodes on s_dirty then we leave the inode's timestamp
alone: it is already expired.

If there _are_ other inodes on s_dirty then we arrange for this inode to get
the same timestamp as the inode which is at the head of s_dirty, thus
preserving the s_dirty ordering.  But we only need to do this if this inode
purports to have been dirtied before the one at head-of-list.

locked (or under writeback, or whatever)"

If this turns out to be true, we must move the inode back onto s_dirty and
redirty it.  The reason for doing this is that fsync() and friends only check
the s_dirty list, and those functions want to know about those pages which
were locked, so they can be waited upon and, if necessary, rewritten.

Problem is, that redirtying was putting the inode onto the tail of s_dirty
without updating its timestamp.  This causes a violation of s_dirty ordering.

Fix this by updating inode->dirtied_when when moving the inode onto s_dirty.

But the code is still a bit buggy?  If the inode was _already_ dirty then we
don't need to move it at all.  Oh well, hopefully it doesn't matter too much,
as that was a redirtying, which was very recent anwyay.

11 years agowriteback: fix time ordering of the per superblock dirty inode lists: memory-backed...
Andrew Morton [Wed, 17 Oct 2007 06:30:33 +0000]
writeback: fix time ordering of the per superblock dirty inode lists: memory-backed inodes

For reasons which escape me, inodes which are dirty against a ram-backed
filesystem are managed in the same way as inodes which are backed by real
devices.

Probably we could optimise things here.  But given that we skip the entire
supeblock as son as we hit the first dirty inode, there's not a lot to be
gained.

And the code does need to handle one particular non-backed superblock: the
kernel's fake internal superblock which holds all the blockdevs.

Still.  At present when the code encounters an inode which is dirty against a
memory-backed filesystem it will skip that inode by refiling it back onto
s_dirty.  But it fails to update the inode's timestamp when doing so which at
least makes the debugging code upset.

Fix.

11 years agowriteback: fix time-ordering of the per-superblock dirty-inode lists
Andrew Morton [Wed, 17 Oct 2007 06:30:32 +0000]
writeback: fix time-ordering of the per-superblock dirty-inode lists

When writeback has finished writing back an inode it looks to see if that
inode is still dirty.  If it is, that means that a process redirtied the inode
while its writeback was in progress.

What we need to do here is to refile the redirtied inode onto the s_dirty
list.

But we're doing that wrongly: it could be that this inode was redirtied
_before_ the last inode on s_dirty.  We're blindly appending this inode to the
list, after an inode which might be less-recently-dirtied, thus violating the
list's ordering.

So we must either insertion-sort this inode into the correct place, or we must
update this inode's dirtied_when field when appending it to the reverse-sorted
s_dirty list, to preserve the reverse-time-ordering.

This patch does the latter: if this inode was dirtied less recently than the
tail inode then copy the tail inode's timestamp into this inode.

This means that in rare circumstances, some inodes will be writen back later
than they should have been.  But the time slip will be small.

ext3: lighten up resize transaction requirements

When resizing online, setup_new_group_blocks attempts to reserve a
potentially very large transaction, depending on the current filesystem
geometry.  For some journal sizes, there may not be enough room for this
transaction, and the online resize will fail.

The patch below resizes & restarts the transaction as necessary while
setting up the new group, and should work with even the smallest journal.

Tested with something like:

[root@newbox ~]# dd if=/dev/zero of=fsfile bs=1024 count=32768
[root@newbox ~]# mkfs.ext3 -b 1024 fsfile 16384
[root@newbox ~]# mount -o loop fsfile mnt/
[root@newbox ~]# resize2fs /dev/loop0
resize2fs 1.40.2 (12-Jul-2007)
Filesystem at /dev/loop0 is mounted on /root/mnt; on-line resizing required

Franck Bui-Huu [Wed, 17 Oct 2007 06:30:24 +0000]
Break ELF_PLATFORM and stack pointer randomization dependency

Currently arch_align_stack() is used by fs/binfmt_elf.c to randomize
stack pointer inside a page. But this happens only if ELF_PLATFORM
symbol is defined.

ELF_PLATFORM is normally set if the architecture wants ld.so to load
implementation specific libraries for optimization. And currently a
lot of architectures just yield this symbol to NULL.

This is the case for MIPS architecture where ELF_PLATFORM is NULL but
arch_align_stack() has been redefined to do stack inside page
randomization. So in this case no randomization is actually done.

This patch breaks this dependency which seems to be useless and allows
platforms such MIPS to do the randomization.

Delay creation of khcvd thread

This changes hvc_init() to be called only when someone actually uses the
hvc_console driver.  Dave Jones complained when profiling bootup.

hvc_console used to only be for Power aka pSeries: now lguest and Xen both
want it built-in in case the kernel is a guest under one of those, even
though usually it will be a native boot.
