[PATCH] DVB: Clarify description text for dvb-bt8xx in Kconfig

Patrick Keene wrote to the linux-dvb list, asking where in menuconfig he
can enable dvb-bt8xx for his AVerMedia DVB card.  I pointed the following
out to him:

config DVB_BT8XX
       tristate "Nebula/Pinnacle PCTV/Twinhan PCI cards"

It has been agreed upon that this description is extremely misleading.

This patch changes the one-liner description text of dvb-bt8xx to something
more meaningful, and adds AVerMedia to the detailed description.

[PATCH] pivot_root() circular reference fix

Fix http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4857

When pivot_root is called from an init script in an initramfs environment,
it causes a circular reference in the mount tree.

The cause of this is that pivot_root() is not prepared to handle pivoting
an unattached mount.  In an initramfs environment, rootfs is the root of
the namespace, and so it is not attached.

This patch fixes this and related problems, by returning -EINVAL if either
the current root or the new root is detached.

[PATCH] kprobes: fix handling of simultaneous probe hit/unregister

This patch fixes a bug in kprobes's handling of a corner case on i386 and
x86_64.  On an SMP system, if one CPU unregisters a kprobe just after
another CPU hits that probepoint, kprobe_handler() on the latter CPU sees
that the kprobe has been unregistered, and attempts to let the CPU continue
as if the probepoint hadn't been hit.  The bug is that on i386 and x86_64,
we were neglecting to set the IP back to the beginning of the probed
instruction.  This could cause an oops or crash.

This bug doesn't exist on ppc64 and ia64, where a breakpoint instruction
leaves the IP pointing to the beginning of the instruction.  I don't know
about sparc64.  (Dave, could you please advise?)

This fix has been tested on i386 and x86_64 SMP systems.  To reproduce the
problem, set one CPU to work registering and unregistering a kprobe
repeatedly, and another CPU pounding the probepoint in a tight loop.

[PATCH] Kprobes/IA64: fix race when break hits and kprobe not found

This patch addresses a potential race condition for a case where Kprobe has
been removed right after another CPU has taken a break hit.

The way this is addressed here is when the CPU that has taken a break hit
does not find its corresponding kprobe, then we check to see if the
original instruction got replaced with other than break.  If it got
replaced with other than break instruction, then we continue to execute
from the replaced instruction, else if we find that it is still a break,
then we let the kernel handle this, as this might be the break instruction
inserted by other than kprobe(may be kernel debugger).

Prasanna S Panchamukhi [Tue, 6 Sep 2005 22:19:26 +0000]
[PATCH] Kprobes: prevent possible race conditions generic

There are possible race conditions if probes are placed on routines within the
kprobes files and routines used by the kprobes.  For example if you put probe
on get_kprobe() routines, the system can hang while inserting probes on any
routine such as do_fork().  Because while inserting probes on do_fork(),
register_kprobes() routine grabs the kprobes spin lock and executes
get_kprobe() routine and to handle probe of get_kprobe(), kprobes_handler()
gets executed and tries to grab kprobes spin lock, and spins forever.  This
patch avoids such possible race conditions by preventing probes on routines
within the kprobes file and routines used by kprobes.

I have modified the patches as per Andi Kleen's suggestion to move kprobes
routines and other routines used by kprobes to a seperate section
.kprobes.text.

Also moved page fault and exception handlers, general protection fault to
.kprobes.text section.

These patches have been tested on i386, x86_64 and ppc64 architectures, also
compiled on ia64 and sparc64 architectures.

don't see the point of setting it to 0 in the "else" case.  >From what I

attaching a buffer to a transaction or we won't write the buffer until the
transaction is going to be committed.

The test in jbd_unexpected_dirty_buffer() is redundant - remove it.
Furthermore we have to clear the buffer dirty bit under the buffer lock to

Mark Fasheh [Tue, 6 Sep 2005 22:19:08 +0000]
[PATCH] kjournald: missing JFS_UNMOUNT check

It seems that kjournald() may be missing a check of the JFS_UNMOUNT flag
before calling schedule().  This showed up in testing of OCFS2 recovery
where our recovery thread would hang in journal_kill_thread() called from
journal_destroy() because kjournald never got a chance to read the flag to
shut down before the schedule().

Zach pointed out the missing check which led me to hack up this trivial
patch.  It's been tested many times now and I have yet to reproduce the
hang, which was happening very regularly before.

<mild rant>
I'm guessing that we could really use some wait_event() calls with helper
functions in, well, most of jbd these days which would make a ton of the
wait code there vastly cleaner.
</mild rant>

As for why this doesn't happen in ext3 (or OCFS2 during normal
mount/unmount of the local nodes journal), I think it may that the specific
timing of events in the ocfs2 recovery thread exposes a race there.
Because ocfs2_replay_journal() is only interested in playing back the

[PATCH] w100fb: Rewrite for platform independence

The code w100fb was based on was horribly Sharp SL-C7x0 specific and there
was little else that could be done as I had no access to anything else with
a w100 in it.  There is no real documentation about this chipset available.

Ian Molton has access to other platforms with the w100 (Toshiba e-series)
and so between us, we've improved w100fb and made it platform independent.
Ian Molton also added support for the very similar w3220 and w3200
chipsets.

There are a lot of changes here and it nearly amounts to a rewrite of the
driver but it has been extensively tested and is being used in preference
to the original driver in the Zaurus community.  I'd therefore like to
update the mainline code to reflect this.

[PATCH] sd: initialize SD cards

Support for the Secure Digital protocol in the MMC layer.

A summary of the legal issues surrounding SD cards, as understood by yours
truly:

Members of the Secure Digital Association, hereafter SDA, are required to sign
a NDA[1] before given access to any specifications.  It has been speculated
that including an SD implementation would forbid these members to redistribute
Linux.  This is the basic problem with SD support so it is unclear if it even
is a problem since it has no effect on those of us that aren't members.

The SDA doesn't seem to enforce these rules though since the patches included
here are based on documentation made public by some of the members.  The most
complete specs[2] are actually released by Sandisk, one of the founding
companies of the SDA.

Because of this the NDA is considered a non-issue by most involved in the
discussions concerning these patches.  It might be that the SDA is only
interested in protecting the so called "secure" bits of SD, which so far
hasn't been found in any public spec.  (The card is split into two sections,
one "normal" and one "secure" which has an access scheme similar to TPM:s).

(As a side note, Microsoft is working to make things easier for us since they
want to be able to include the source code for a SD driver in one of their
development kits.  HP is making sure that the new NDA will allow a Linux
implementation.  So far only the SDIO specs have been opened up[3].  More will
hopefully follow.)

 [2] http://www.sandisk.com/pdf/oem/ProdManualSDCardv1.9.pdf
 [3] http://www.sdcard.org/sdio/Simplified%20SDIO%20Card%20Specification.pdf

This patch contains the central parts of the SD support.  If no MMC cards are
found on a bus then the MMC layer proceeds looking for SD cards.  Helper
functions are extended to handle the special needs of SD cards.

Corey Minyard [Tue, 6 Sep 2005 22:18:41 +0000]
[PATCH] ipmi: OEM flag handling and hacks for some Dell machines

The ipmi driver does not have a way to handle firmware-generated events
which have the OEM[012] Data Available flags set.  In such a case, the
SMS_ATN bit may never get cleared by firmware, leaving the driver looping
infinitely but never able to make any progress.

This patch first simplifies storage and use of the data returned from an
IPMI Get Device ID command.

It then creates a new per-OEM handler hook, which should know how to handle
events with the OEM[012] Data Available flags set.  It then uses this to
implement a workaround for IPMI 1.5-capable Dell PowerEdge servers which
are susceptable to setting the OEM[012] Data Available flags when the
driver can't handle it.

14 years ago[PATCH] fix: dmi_check_system
Robert Love [Tue, 6 Sep 2005 22:18:30 +0000]
[PATCH] fix: dmi_check_system

Background:

1) dmi_check_system() returns the count of the number of
   matches.  Zero thus means no matches.
2) A match callback can return nonzero to stop the match
   checking.

Bug: The count is incremented after we check for the nonzero return value,
so it does not reflect the actual count.  We could say this is intended,
for some dumb reason, except that it means that a match on the first check
returns zero--no matches--if the callback returns nonzero.

Attached patch implements the count before calling the callback and thus
before potentially short-circuiting.

[PATCH] struct dentry: place d_hash close to d_parent and d_name to speedup lookups

dentry cache uses sophisticated RCU technology (and prefetching if
available) but touches 2 cache lines per dentry during hlist lookup.

This patch moves d_hash in the same cache line than d_parent and d_name
fields so that :

1) One cache line is needed instead of two.

2) the hlist_for_each_rcu() prefetching has a chance to bring all the
   needed data in advance, not only the part that includes d_hash.next.

I also changed one old comment that was wrong for 64bits.

A further optimisation would be to separate dentry in two parts, one that
is mostly read, and one writen (d_count/d_lock) to avoid false sharing on
SMP/NUMA but this would need different field placement depending on 32bits
or 64bits platform.

Paul Jackson [Tue, 6 Sep 2005 22:18:13 +0000]
[PATCH] cpusets: confine oom_killer to mem_exclusive cpuset

Now the real motivation for this cpuset mem_exclusive patch series seems
trivial.

This patch keeps a task in or under one mem_exclusive cpuset from provoking an
oom kill of a task under a non-overlapping mem_exclusive cpuset.  Since only
interrupt and GFP_ATOMIC allocations are allowed to escape mem_exclusive
containment, there is little to gain from oom killing a task under a
non-overlapping mem_exclusive cpuset, as almost all kernel and user memory
allocation must come from disjoint memory nodes.

This patch enables configuring a system so that a runaway job under one
mem_exclusive cpuset cannot cause the killing of a job in another such cpuset
that might be using very high compute and memory resources for a prolonged
time.

14 years ago[PATCH] cpusets: formalize intermediate GFP_KERNEL containment
Paul Jackson [Tue, 6 Sep 2005 22:18:12 +0000]
[PATCH] cpusets: formalize intermediate GFP_KERNEL containment

This patch makes use of the previously underutilized cpuset flag
'mem_exclusive' to provide what amounts to another layer of memory placement
resolution.  With this patch, there are now the following four layers of
memory placement available:

 1) The whole system (interrupt and GFP_ATOMIC allocations can use this),
 2) The nearest enclosing mem_exclusive cpuset (GFP_KERNEL allocations can use),
 3) The current tasks cpuset (GFP_USER allocations constrained to here), and
 4) Specific node placement, using mbind and set_mempolicy.

These nest - each layer is a subset (same or within) of the previous.

Layer (2) above is new, with this patch.  The call used to check whether a
zone (its node, actually) is in a cpuset (in its mems_allowed, actually) is
extended to take a gfp_mask argument, and its logic is extended, in the case
that __GFP_HARDWALL is not set in the flag bits, to look up the cpuset
hierarchy for the nearest enclosing mem_exclusive cpuset, to determine if
placement is allowed.  The definition of GFP_USER, which used to be identical
to GFP_KERNEL, is changed to also set the __GFP_HARDWALL bit, in the previous
cpuset_gfp_hardwall_flag patch.

GFP_ATOMIC and GFP_KERNEL allocations will stay within the current tasks
cpuset, so long as any node therein is not too tight on memory, but will
escape to the larger layer, if need be.

The intended use is to allow something like a batch manager to handle several
jobs, each job in its own cpuset, but using common kernel memory for caches
and such.  Swapper and oom_kill activity is also constrained to Layer (2).  A
task in or below one mem_exclusive cpuset should not cause swapping on nodes
in another non-overlapping mem_exclusive cpuset, nor provoke oom_killing of a
task in another such cpuset.  Heavy use of kernel memory for i/o caching and
such by one job should not impact the memory available to jobs in other
non-overlapping mem_exclusive cpusets.

This patch enables providing hardwall, inescapable cpusets for memory
allocations of each job, while sharing kernel memory allocations between
several jobs, in an enclosing mem_exclusive cpuset.

Like Dinakar's patch earlier to enable administering sched domains using the
cpu_exclusive flag, this patch also provides a useful meaning to a cpuset flag
that had previously done nothing much useful other than restrict what cpuset
configurations were allowed.

A subsequent "cpuset_zone_allowed" patch will use this flag to mark GFP_USER
allocations, and distinguish them from GFP_KERNEL allocations.

Allocations (such as GFP_USER) marked GFP_HARDWALL are constrainted to the
current tasks cpuset.  Other allocations (such as GFP_KERNEL) can steal from
the possibly larger nearest mem_exclusive cpuset ancestor, if memory is tight
on every node in the current cpuset.

This patch collides with Mel Gorman's patch to reduce fragmentation in the
standard buddy allocator, which adds two GFP flags.  This was discussed on
linux-mm in July.  Most likely, one of his flags for user reclaimable memory
can be the same as my __GFP_HARDWALL flag, under some generic name meaning its
user address space memory.

14 years ago[PATCH] cpusets: oom_kill tweaks
Paul Jackson [Tue, 6 Sep 2005 22:18:09 +0000]
[PATCH] cpusets: oom_kill tweaks

This patch series extends the use of the cpuset attribute 'mem_exclusive'
to support cpuset configurations that:
 1) allow GFP_KERNEL allocations to come from a potentially larger
    set of memory nodes than GFP_USER allocations, and
 2) can constrain the oom killer to tasks running in cpusets in
    a specified subtree of the cpuset hierarchy.

Here's an example usage scenario.  For a few hours or more, a large NUMA
system at a University is to be divided in two halves, with a bunch of student
jobs running in half the system under some form of batch manager, and with a
big research project running in the other half.  Each of the student jobs is
placed in a small cpuset, but should share the classic Unix time share
facilities, such as buffered pages of files in /bin and /usr/lib.  The big
research project wants no interference whatsoever from the student jobs, and
has highly tuned, unusual memory and i/o patterns that intend to make full use
of all the main memory on the nodes available to it.

In this example, we have two big sibling cpusets, one of which is further
divided into a more dynamic set of child cpusets.

We want kernel memory allocations constrained by the two big cpusets, and user
allocations constrained by the smaller child cpusets where present.  And we
require that the oom killer not operate across the two halves of this system,
or else the first time a student job runs amuck, the big research project will
likely be first inline to get shot.

Tweaking /proc/<pid>/oom_adj is not ideal -- if the big research project
really does run amuck allocating memory, it should be shot, not some other
task outside the research projects mem_exclusive cpuset.

I propose to extend the use of the 'mem_exclusive' flag of cpusets to manage
such scenarios.  Let memory allocations for user space (GFP_USER) be
constrained by a tasks current cpuset, but memory allocations for kernel space
(GFP_KERNEL) by constrained by the nearest mem_exclusive ancestor of the
current cpuset, even though kernel space allocations will still _prefer_ to
remain within the current tasks cpuset, if memory is easily available.

Let the oom killer be constrained to consider only tasks that are in
overlapping mem_exclusive cpusets (it won't help much to kill a task that
normally cannot allocate memory on any of the same nodes as the ones on which
the current task can allocate.)

The current constraints imposed on setting mem_exclusive are unchanged.  A
cpuset may only be mem_exclusive if its parent is also mem_exclusive, and a
mem_exclusive cpuset may not overlap any of its siblings memory nodes.

This patch was presented on linux-mm in early July 2005, though did not
generate much feedback at that time.  It has been built for a variety of
arch's using cross tools, and built, booted and tested for function on SN2
(ia64).

There are 4 patches in this set:
  1) Some minor cleanup, and some improvements to the code layout
     of one routine to make subsequent patches cleaner.
  2) Add another GFP flag - __GFP_HARDWALL.  It marks memory
     requests for USER space, which are tightly confined by the
     current tasks cpuset.
  3) Now memory requests (such as KERNEL) that not marked HARDWALL can
     if short on memory, look in the potentially larger pool of memory
     defined by the nearest mem_exclusive ancestor cpuset of the current
     tasks cpuset.
  4) Finally, modify the oom killer to skip any task whose mem_exclusive
     cpuset doesn't overlap ours.

Patch (1), the one time I looked on an SN2 (ia64) build, actually saved 32
bytes of kernel text space.  Patch (2) has no affect on the size of kernel
text space (it just adds a preprocessor flag).  Patches (3) and (4) added
about 600 bytes each of kernel text space, mostly in kernel/cpuset.c, which
matters only if CONFIG_CPUSET is enabled.

This patch:

This patch applies a few comment and code cleanups to mm/oom_kill.c prior to
applying a few small patches to improve cpuset management of memory placement.

The comment changed in oom_kill.c was seriously misleading.  The code layout
change in select_bad_process() makes room for adding another condition on
which a process can be spared the oom killer (see the subsequent
cpuset_nodes_overlap patch for this addition).

Also a couple typos and spellos that bugged me, while I was here.

This patch should have no material affect.

14 years ago[PATCH] ia64 cpuset + build_sched_domains() mangles structures
John Hawkes [Tue, 6 Sep 2005 22:18:06 +0000]
[PATCH] ia64 cpuset + build_sched_domains() mangles structures

I've already sent this to the maintainers, and this is now being sent to a
larger community audience.  I have fixed a problem with the ia64 version of
build_sched_domains(), but a similar fix still needs to be made to the
generic build_sched_domains() in kernel/sched.c.

The "dynamic sched domains" functionality has recently been merged into
2.6.13-rcN that sees the dynamic declaration of a cpu-exclusive (a.k.a.
"isolated") cpuset and rebuilds the CPU Scheduler sched domains and sched
groups to separate away the CPUs in this cpu-exclusive cpuset from the
remainder of the non-isolated CPUs.  This allows the non-isolated CPUs to
completely ignore the isolated CPUs when doing load-balancing.

Unfortunately, build_sched_domains() expects that a sched domain will
include all the CPUs of each node in the domain, i.e., that no node will
belong in both an isolated cpuset and a non-isolated cpuset.  Declaring a
cpuset that violates this presumption will produce flawed data structures
and will oops the kernel.

To trigger the problem (on a NUMA system with >1 CPUs per node):
   cd /dev/cpuset
   mkdir newcpuset
   cd newcpuset
   echo 0 >cpus
   echo 0 >mems
   echo 1 >cpu_exclusive

I have fixed this shortcoming for ia64 NUMA (with multiple CPUs per node).
A similar shortcoming exists in the generic build_sched_domains() (in
kernel/sched.c) for NUMA, and that needs to be fixed also.  The fix
involves dynamically allocating sched_group_nodes[] and
sched_group_allnodes[] for each invocation of build_sched_domains(), rather
than using global arrays for these structures.  Care must be taken to
remember kmalloc() addresses so that arch_destroy_sched_domains() can
properly kfree() the new dynamic structures.

14 years ago[PATCH] block: CFQ refcounting fix
Brian King [Tue, 6 Sep 2005 22:18:04 +0000]
[PATCH] block: CFQ refcounting fix

I ran across a memory leak related to the cfq scheduler. The cfq
init function increments the refcnt of the associated request_queue.

This refcount gets decremented in cfq's exit function. Since blk_cleanup_queue
only calls the elevator exit function when its refcnt goes to zero, the
request_q never gets cleaned up. It didn't look like other io schedulers were
incrementing this refcnt, so I removed the refcnt increment and it fixed the
memory leak for me.

To reproduce the problem, simply use cfq and use the scsi_host scan sysfs
attribute to scan "- - -" repeatedly on a scsi host and watch the memory
vanish.

People have run into a problem when they do this:

watch (file1, all_events);
watch (file2, some_events);

if file2 is a hard link to file1, some events will be missed because by
default we replace the mask.  The patch below adds a flag IN_MASK_ADD which
