[PATCH] knfsd: nfsd4: simplify nfsv4->posix translation

The code that splits an incoming nfsv4 ACL into inheritable and effective
parts can be combined with the the code that translates each to a posix acl,
resulting in simpler code that requires one less pass through the ACL.

J. Bruce Fields [Fri, 16 Feb 2007 09:28:28 +0000]
[PATCH] knfsd: nfsd4: relax checking of ACL inheritance bits

The rfc allows us to be more permissive about the ACL inheritance bits we
accept:

"If the server supports a single "inherit ACE" flag that applies to
both files and directories, the server may reject the request
(i.e., requiring the client to set both the file and directory
inheritance flags). The server may also accept the request and
silently turn on the ACE4_DIRECTORY_INHERIT_ACE flag."

Let's take the latter option--the ACL is a complex attribute that could be
rejected for a wide variety of reasons, and the protocol gives us little
ability to explain the reason for the rejection, so erroring out is a
user-unfriendly last resort.

J. Bruce Fields [Fri, 16 Feb 2007 09:28:27 +0000]
[PATCH] knfsd: nfsd4: fix non-terminated string

The server name is expected to be a null-terminated string, so we can't pass
in the raw client identifier.

What's more, the client identifier is just a binary, not necessarily
printable, blob.  Let's just use the ip address instead.  The server name
appears to exist just to help debugging by making some printk's more
informative.

Note that the string is copies into the rpc client structure, so the pointer
to the local variable does not outlive the function call.

Ingo Molnar [Fri, 16 Feb 2007 09:28:24 +0000]
[PATCH] genirq: do not mask interrupts by default

Never mask interrupts immediately upon request.  Disabling interrupts in
high-performance codepaths is rare, and on the other hand this change could
recover lost edges (or even other types of lost interrupts) by conservatively
only masking interrupts after they happen.  (NOTE: with this change the
highlevel irq-disable code still soft-disables this IRQ line - and if such an
interrupt happens then the IRQ flow handler keeps the IRQ masked.)

Mark i8529A controllers as 'never loses an edge'.

Paul E. McKenney [Fri, 16 Feb 2007 09:28:22 +0000]
[PATCH] posix timers: RCU optimization for clock_gettime()

Use RCU to avoid the need to acquire tasklist_lock in the single-threaded
case of clock_gettime().  It still acquires tasklist_lock when for a
(potentially multithreaded) process.  This change allows realtime
applications to frequently monitor CPU consumption of individual tasks, as
requested (and now deployed) by some off-list users.

This has been in Ingo Molnar's -rt patchset since late 2005 with no
problems reported, and tests successfully on 2.6.20-rc6, so I believe that
it is long-since ready for mainline adoption.

[PATCH] i386 prepare nmi watchdog for dynticks

The NMI watchdog implementation assumes that the local APIC timer interrupt is
happening.  This assumption is not longer true when high resolution timers and
dynamic ticks come into play, as they may switch off the local APIC timer
completely.  Take the PIT/HPET interrupts into account too, to avoid false
positives.

12 years ago[PATCH] i386 rework local apic timer calibration
Thomas Gleixner [Fri, 16 Feb 2007 09:28:06 +0000]
[PATCH] i386 rework local apic timer calibration

The local apic timer calibration has two problem cases:

1.  The calibration is based on readout of the PIT/HPET timer to detect the
   wrap of the periodic tick.  It happens that a box gets stuck in the
   calibration loop due to a PIT with a broken readout function.

2.  CoreDuo boxen show a sporadic PIT runs too slow defect, which results
   in a wrong lapic calibration.  The PIT goes back to normal operation once
   the lapic timer is switched to periodic mode.

Both are existing and unfixed problems in the current upstream kernel and
prevent certain laptops and other systems from booting Linux.

Rework the code to address both problems:

- Make the calibration interrupt driven.  This removes the wait_timer_tick
  magic hackery from lapic.c and time_hpet.c.  The clockevents framework
  allows easy substitution of the global tick event handler for the
  calibration.  This is more accurate than monitoring jiffies.  At this point
  of the boot process, nothing disturbes the interrupt delivery, so the
  results are very accurate.

- Verify the calibration against the PM timer, when available by using the
  early access function.  When the measured calibration period is outside of
  an one percent window, then the lapic timer calibration is adjusted to the
  pm timer result.

- Verify the calibration by running the lapic timer with the calibration
  handler.  Disable lapic timer in case of deviation.

This also removes the "synchronization" of the local apic timer to the global
tick.  This synchronization never worked, as there is no way to synchronize
PIT(HPET) and local APIC timer.  The synchronization by waiting for the tick
just alignes the local APIC timer for the first events, but later the events
drift away due to the different clocks.  Removing the "sync" is just
randomizing the asynchronous behaviour at setup time.

related management events.

This allows to control the clock event devices without the architectures
having to worry about the details of function assignment.  This is also a
preliminary for high resolution timers and dynamic ticks to allow the core

architecture code.

The Geode can safely use the TSC for highres, since:

1) Does not support frequency scaling,

2) The TSC _does_ count when the CPU is halted.  Furthermore, the Geode
   supports a mode called "suspension on halt", where Suspend mode (which
   interacts with the power management states) is entered.  TSC counting
   during suspend mode is controlled by bit 8 of the Bus Controller
   Configuration Register #0 (thanks Tom!).

3) no SMP :)

Check if "RTSC counts during suspension" and remove the requirement for
verification, so the clocksource code can safely select it as an timesource
for the highres timers subsystem.

[PATCH] x86: rewrite SMP TSC sync code

make the TSC synchronization code more robust, and unify it between x86_64 and
i386.

The biggest change is the removal of the 'fix up TSCs' code on x86_64 and
i386, in some rare cases it was /causing/ time-warps on SMP systems.

The new code only checks for TSC asynchronity - and if it can prove a
time-warp (if it can observe the TSC going backwards when going from one CPU
to another within a critical section), then the TSC clock-source is turned
off.

The TSC synchronization-checking code also got moved into a separate file.

Jeff Dike [Fri, 16 Feb 2007 09:27:21 +0000]
[PATCH] uml: fix 2.6.20 hang

A previous cleanup misused need_poll, which had a fairly broken interface.
It implemented a growable array, changing the used elements count itself,
but leaving it up to the caller to fill in the actual elements, including
the entire array if the array had to be reallocated.  This worked because
the previous users were switching between two such structures, and the
elements were copied from the inactive array to the active array after
making sure the active array had enough room.

maybe_sigio_broken was made to use need_poll, but it was operating on a
single array, so when the buffer was reallocated, the previous contents
were lost.

This patch makes need_poll implement more sane semantics.  It merely
assures that the array is of the proper size and that the contents are
preserved.  It is up to the caller to adjust the used elements count and to
ensure that the proper elements are resent.

This manifested itself as a hang in 2.6.20 as the uninitialized buffer
convinced UML that one of its own file descriptors didn't support SIGIO and
needed to be watched by poll in a separate thread.  The result was an
interrupt flood as control traffic over this descriptor sparked interrupts,
which resulted in more control traffic, ad nauseum.

libata: fix drive side 80c cable check, take 3

The 80c wire bit is bit 13, not 14.  Bit 14 is always 1 if word93 is
implemented.  This increases the chance of incorrect wire detection
especially because host side cable detection is often unreliable and
we sometimes soley depend on drive side cable detection.  Fix the test
and add word93 validity check.

12 years agosata_promise: new EH conversion for 20619 chips, take 2

sata_promise: new EH conversion for 20619 chips, take 2

This patch updates the sata_promise driver to use new-style
libata error handling for 20619 (TX4000) chips. sata_promise
already uses new EH for the other chips it supports, so the
patch is quite simple:

* remove ->phy_reset and ->eng_timeout ops from pdc_pata_ops,
  and instead bind ->freeze, ->thaw, ->error_handler, and
  ->post_internal_cmd to existing new EH functions
* drop ATA_FLAG_SRST from board_20619's flags
* remove now unused pdc_pata_phy_reset() and pdc_eng_timeout()

Tested on a TX4000 with both modern working disks and old/quirky
disks. Also used a CD-RW drive to test reading and writing CDs.

[PATCH] sysctl: hide the sysctl proc inodes from selinux

Since the security checks are applied on each read and write of a sysctl file,
just like they are applied when calling sys_sysctl, they are redundant on the
standard VFS constructs.  Since it is difficult to compute the security labels
on the standard VFS constructs we just mark the sysctl inodes in proc private
so selinux won't even bother with them.

[PATCH] selinux: enhance selinux to always ignore private inodes

Hmmm...turns out to not be quite enough, as the /proc/sys inodes aren't truly
private to the fs, so we can run into them in a variety of security hooks
beyond just the inode hooks, such as security_file_permission (when reading
and writing them via the vfs helpers), security_sb_mount (when mounting other
filesystems on directories in proc like binfmt_misc), and deeper within the
security module itself (as in flush_unauthorized_files upon inheritance across
execve).  So I think we have to add an IS_PRIVATE() guard within SELinux, as
below.  Note however that the use of the private flag here could be confusing,
as these inodes are _not_ private to the fs, are exposed to userspace, and
security modules must implement the sysctl hook to get any access control over
them.

[PATCH] sysctl: reimplement the sysctl proc support

With this change the sysctl inodes can be cached and nothing needs to be done
when removing a sysctl table.

For a cost of 2K code we will save about 4K of static tables (when we remove
de from ctl_table) and 70K in proc_dir_entries that we will not allocate, or
about half that on a 32bit arch.

The speed feels about the same, even though we can now cache the sysctl
dentries :(

We get the core advantage that we don't need to have a 1 to 1 mapping between
ctl table entries and proc files.  Making it possible to have /proc/sys vary
depending on the namespace you are in.  The currently merged namespaces don't
have an issue here but the network namespace under /proc/sys/net needs to have
different directories depending on which network adapters are visible.  By
simply being a cache different directories being visible depending on who you
are is trivial to implement.

I am in the process of implementing a version of the sysctl proc support that

Eric W. Biederman [Wed, 14 Feb 2007 08:34:09 +0000]
[PATCH] sysctl: remove insert_at_head from register_sysctl

The semantic effect of insert_at_head is that it would allow new registered
sysctl entries to override existing sysctl entries of the same name.  Which is
pain for caching and the proc interface never implemented.

I have done an audit and discovered that none of the current users of
register_sysctl care as (excpet for directories) they do not register
duplicate sysctl entries.

So this patch simply removes the support for overriding existing entries in
the sys_sysctl interface since no one uses it or cares and it makes future
enhancments harder.

[PATCH] sysctl: register the ocfs2 sysctl numbers

ocfs2 was did not have the binary number it uses under CTL_FS registered in
sysctl.h.  Register it to avoid future conflicts, and change the name of the
definition to be in line with the rest of the sysctl numbers.

[PATCH] sysctl: C99 convert ctl_tables in NTFS and remove sys_sysctl support

Putting ntfs-debug under FS_NRINODE was not a kosher thing to do so don't give
it any binary number.

[PATCH] sysctl: C99 convert coda ctl_tables and remove binary sysctls

Will converting the coda sysctl initializers I discovered that it is yet
another user of sysctl that was stomping CTL_KERN.  So off with it's
sys_sysctl support since it wasn't done in a supportable way.
