[PATCH] ufs2 write: inodes write

This patch adds into write inode path function to write UFS2 inode, and
modifys allocate inode path to allocate and init additional inode chunks.

Also some cleanups:
- remove not used parameters in some functions
- remove i_gen field from ufs_inode_info structure,
there is i_generation in inode structure with same purposes.

13 years ago[PATCH] ufs2 write: mount as rw
Evgeniy Dushistov [Mon, 12 Feb 2007 08:54:30 +0000]
[PATCH] ufs2 write: mount as rw

These series of patches add UFS2 write-support.  UFS2 - is default file system
for recent versions of FreeBSD.

The main differences from UFS1 from write support point of view
are:
1)Not all inodes are allocated during formatation of disk.
2)All meta-data(pointer to data blocks) are 64bit(in UFS1 they
are 32bit).

So patch series consist of
1)make possible mount UFS2 in read-write mode
2)code to write ufs2 inodes and code to initialize inodes chunks.
3)work with 64bit meta-data

I made simple testing like create/deleting/writing/reading/truncating, also I
ran fsx-linux and untar and build kernel on UFS1 and UFS2, after that FreeBSD
fsck do not find any errors in fs.

This patch makes possible to mount ufs2 "rw", and updates UFS2 documentation:
remove note about bug(it fixed by reallocate blocks on the fly patch) and add
me in the list of people who want receive bug reports.

Alon Bar-Lev [Mon, 12 Feb 2007 08:54:29 +0000]
[PATCH] ia64: 2048-byte command line

Current implementation allows the kernel to receive up to 255 characters from
the bootloader.  While the boot protocol allows greater buffers to be sent.

In current environment, the command-line is used in order to specify many
values, including suspend/resume, module arguments, splash, initramfs and
more.

255 characters are not enough anymore.

After edd issue was fixed, and dynammic kernel command-line patch was
accepted, we can extend the COMMAND_LINE_SIZE without runtime memory
requirements.

13 years ago[PATCH] Dynamic kernel command-line: common
Alon Bar-Lev [Mon, 12 Feb 2007 08:53:52 +0000]
[PATCH] Dynamic kernel command-line: common

Current implementation stores a static command-line buffer allocated to
COMMAND_LINE_SIZE size.  Most architectures stores two copies of this buffer,
one for future reference and one for parameter parsing.

Current kernel command-line size for most architecture is much too small for
module parameters, video settings, initramfs paramters and much more.  The
problem is that setting COMMAND_LINE_SIZE to a grater value, allocates static
buffers.

In order to allow a greater command-line size, these buffers should be
dynamically allocated or marked as init disposable buffers, so unused memory
can be released.

This patch renames the static saved_command_line variable into
boot_command_line adding __initdata attribute, so that it can be disposed
after initialization.  This rename is required so applications that use
saved_command_line will not be affected by this change.

It reintroduces saved_command_line as dynamically allocated buffer to match
the data in boot_command_line.

It also mark secondary command-line buffer as __initdata, and copies it to
dynamically allocated static_command_line buffer components may hold reference
to it after initialization.

This patch is for linux-2.6.20-rc4-mm1 and is divided to target each
architecture.  I could not check this in any architecture so please forgive me
if I got it wrong.

The per-architecture modification is very simple, use boot_command_line in
place of saved_command_line.  The common code is the change into dynamic
command-line.

This patch:

1. Rename saved_command_line into boot_command_line, mark as init
   disposable.

2. Add dynamic allocated saved_command_line.

3. Add dynamic allocated static_command_line.

4. During startup copy: boot_command_line into saved_command_line.  arch
   command_line into static_command_line.

5. Parse static_command_line and not arch command_line, so arch
   command_line may be freed.

13 years ago[PATCH] eCryptfs: xattr flags and mount options
Michael Halcrow [Mon, 12 Feb 2007 08:53:45 +0000]
[PATCH] eCryptfs: xattr flags and mount options

This patch set introduces the ability to store cryptographic metadata into an
lower file extended attribute rather than the lower file header region.

This patch set implements two new mount options:

ecryptfs_xattr_metadata
 - When set, newly created files will have their cryptographic
   metadata stored in the extended attribute region of the file rather
   than the header.

   When storing the data in the file header, there is a minimum of 8KB
   reserved for the header information for each file, making each file at
   least 12KB in size.  This can take up a lot of extra disk space if the user
   creates a lot of small files.  By storing the data in the extended
   attribute, each file will only occupy at least of 4KB of space.

   As the eCryptfs metadata set becomes larger with new features such as
   multi-key associations, most popular filesystems will not be able to store
   all of the information in the xattr region in some cases due to space
   constraints.  However, the majority of users will only ever associate one
   key per file, so most users will be okay with storing their data in the
   xattr region.

   This option should be used with caution.  I want to emphasize that the
   xattr must be maintained under all circumstances, or the file will be
   rendered permanently unrecoverable.  The last thing I want is for a user to
   forget to set an xattr flag in a backup utility, only to later discover
   that their backups are worthless.

ecryptfs_encrypted_view
 - When set, this option causes eCryptfs to present applications a
   view of encrypted files as if the cryptographic metadata were
   stored in the file header, whether the metadata is actually stored
   in the header or in the extended attributes.

   No matter what eCryptfs winds up doing in the lower filesystem, I want
   to preserve a baseline format compatibility for the encrypted files.  As of
   right now, the metadata may be in the file header or in an xattr.  There is
   no reason why the metadata could not be put in a separate file in future
   versions.

   Without the compatibility mode, backup utilities would have to know to
   back up the metadata file along with the files.  The semantics of eCryptfs
   have always been that the lower files are self-contained units of encrypted
   data, and the only additional information required to decrypt any given
   eCryptfs file is the key.  That is what has always been emphasized about
   eCryptfs lower files, and that is what users expect.  Providing the
   encrypted view option will provide a way to userspace applications wherein
   they can always get to the same old familiar eCryptfs encrypted files,
   regardless of what eCryptfs winds up doing with the metadata behind the
   scenes.

This patch:

Add extended attribute support to version bit vector, flags to indicate when
xattr or encrypted view modes are enabled, and support for the new mount
options.

13 years ago[PATCH] eCryptfs: Public key transport mechanism
Michael Halcrow [Mon, 12 Feb 2007 08:53:43 +0000]
[PATCH] eCryptfs: Public key transport mechanism

This is the transport code for public key functionality in eCryptfs.  It
manages encryption/decryption request queues with a transport mechanism.
Currently, netlink is the only implemented transport.

Each inode has a unique File Encryption Key (FEK).  Under passphrase, a File
Encryption Key Encryption Key (FEKEK) is generated from a salt/passphrase
combo on mount.  This FEKEK encrypts each FEK and writes it into the header of
each file using the packet format specified in RFC 2440.  This is all
symmetric key encryption, so it can all be done via the kernel crypto API.

These new patches introduce public key encryption of the FEK.  There is no
asymmetric key encryption support in the kernel crypto API, so eCryptfs pushes
the FEK encryption and decryption out to a userspace daemon.  After
considering our requirements and determining the complexity of using various
transport mechanisms, we settled on netlink for this communication.

eCryptfs stores authentication tokens into the kernel keyring.  These tokens
correlate with individual keys.  For passphrase mode of operation, the
authentication token contains the symmetric FEKEK.  For public key, the
authentication token contains a PKI type and an opaque data blob managed by
individual PKI modules in userspace.

Each user who opens a file under an eCryptfs partition mounted in public key
mode must be running a daemon.  That daemon has the user's credentials and has
access to all of the keys to which the user should have access.  The daemon,
when started, initializes the pluggable PKI modules available on the system
and registers itself with the eCryptfs kernel module.  Userspace utilities
register public key authentication tokens into the user session keyring.
These authentication tokens correlate key signatures with PKI modules and PKI
blobs.  The PKI blobs contain PKI-specific information necessary for the PKI
module to carry out asymmetric key encryption and decryption.

When the eCryptfs module parses the header of an existing file and finds a Tag
1 (Public Key) packet (see RFC 2440), it reads in the public key identifier
(signature).  The asymmetrically encrypted FEK is in the Tag 1 packet;
eCryptfs puts together a decrypt request packet containing the signature and
the encrypted FEK, then it passes it to the daemon registered for the
current->euid via a netlink unicast to the PID of the daemon, which was
registered at the time the daemon was started by the user.

The daemon actually just makes calls to libecryptfs, which implements request
packet parsing and manages PKI modules.  libecryptfs grabs the public key
authentication token for the given signature from the user session keyring.
This auth tok tells libecryptfs which PKI module should receive the request.
libecryptfs then makes a decrypt() call to the PKI module, and it passes along
the PKI block from the auth tok.  The PKI uses the blob to figure out how it
should decrypt the data passed to it; it performs the decryption and passes
the decrypted data back to libecryptfs.  libecryptfs then puts together a
reply packet with the decrypted FEK and passes that back to the eCryptfs
module.

The eCryptfs module manages these request callouts to userspace code via
message context structs.  The module maintains an array of message context
structs and places the elements of the array on two lists: a free and an
allocated list.  When eCryptfs wants to make a request, it moves a msg ctx
from the free list to the allocated list, sets its state to pending, and fires
off the message to the user's registered daemon.

When eCryptfs receives a netlink message (via the callback), it correlates the
msg ctx struct in the alloc list with the data in the message itself.  The
msg->index contains the offset of the array of msg ctx structs.  It verifies
that the registered daemon PID is the same as the PID of the process that sent
the message.  It also validates a sequence number between the received packet
and the msg ctx.  Then, it copies the contents of the message (the reply
packet) into the msg ctx struct, sets the state in the msg ctx to done, and
wakes up the process that was sleeping while waiting for the reply.

The sleeping process was whatever was performing the sys_open().  This process
originally called ecryptfs_send_message(); it is now in
ecryptfs_wait_for_response().  When it wakes up and sees that the msg ctx
state was set to done, it returns a pointer to the message contents (the reply
packet) and returns.  If all went well, this packet contains the decrypted
FEK, which is then copied into the crypt_stat struct, and life continues as
normal.

The case for creation of a new file is very similar, only instead of a decrypt
request, eCryptfs sends out an encrypt request.

> - We have a great clod of key mangement code in-kernel.  Why is that
>   not suitable (or growable) for public key management?

eCryptfs uses Howells' keyring to store persistent key data and PKI state
information.  It defers public key cryptographic transformations to userspace
code.  The userspace data manipulation request really is orthogonal to key
management in and of itself.  What eCryptfs basically needs is a secure way to
communicate with a particular daemon for a particular task doing a syscall,
based on the UID.  Nothing running under another UID should be able to access
that channel of communication.

> - Is it appropriate that new infrastructure for public key
> management be private to a particular fs?

The messaging.c file contains a lot of code that, perhaps, could be extracted
into a separate kernel service.  In essence, this would be a sort of
request/reply mechanism that would involve a userspace daemon.  I am not aware
of anything that does quite what eCryptfs does, so I was not aware of any
existing tools to do just what we wanted.

>   What happens if one of these daemons exits without sending a quit
>   message?

There is a stale uid<->pid association in the hash table for that user.  When
the user registers a new daemon, eCryptfs cleans up the old association and
generates a new one.  See ecryptfs_process_helo().

> - _why_ does it use netlink?

Netlink provides the transport mechanism that would minimize the complexity of
the implementation, given that we can have multiple daemons (one per user).  I
explored the possibility of using relayfs, but that would involve having to
introduce control channels and a protocol for creating and tearing down
channels for the daemons.  We do not have to worry about any of that with
netlink.

[PATCH] knfsd: SUNRPC: Add a function to format the address in an svc_rqst for printing

There are loads of places where the RPC server assumes that the rq_addr fields
contains an IPv4 address.  Top among these are error and debugging messages
that display the server's IP address.

Let's refactor the address printing into a separate function that's smart
enough to figure out the difference between IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.

13 years ago[PATCH] Workaround CAPI subsystem locking issue
Michael Buesch [Mon, 12 Feb 2007 08:53:26 +0000]
[PATCH] Workaround CAPI subsystem locking issue

I think the following patch should go into the kernel, until the ISDN/CAPI
guys create the real fix for this issue.

The issue is a concurrency issue with some internal CAPI data structure
which can crash the kernel.

On my FritzCard DSL with the AVM driver it crashes about once a day without
this workaround patch.  With this workaround patch it's rock-stable (at
least on UP, but I don't see why this shouldn't work on SMP as well.  But
maybe I'm missing something.)

This workaround is kind of a sledgehammer which inserts a global lock to
wrap around all the critical sections.  Of course, this is a scalability
issue, if you have many ISDN/CAPI cards.  But it prevents a crash.  So I
vote for this fix to get merged, until people come up with a better
solution.  Better have a stable kernel that's less scalable, than a
crashing and useless kernel.

This bug is in the kernel since 2.6.15 (at least).

Frithiof Jensen [Mon, 12 Feb 2007 08:53:07 +0000]
[PATCH] EDAC: Add memory scrubbing controls API to core

This is an attempt of providing an interface for memory scrubbing control in
EDAC.

This patch modifies the EDAC Core to provide the Interface for memory
controller modules to implment.

The following things are still outstanding:

 - K8 is the first implemenation,

   The patch provide a method of configuring the K8 hardware memory scrubber
   via the 'mcX' sysfs directory.  There should be some fallback to a generic
   scrubber implemented in software if the hardware does not support
   scrubbing.

   Or .. the scrubbing sysfs entry should not be visible at all.

 - Only works with SDRAM, not cache,

   The K8 can scrub cache and l2cache also - but I think this is not so
   useful as the cache is busy all the time (one hopes).

   One would also expect that cache scrubbing requires hardware support.

 - Error Handling,

   I would like that errors are returned to the user in "terms of file
   system".

 - Presentation,

   I chose Bandwidth in Bytes/Second as a representation of the scrubbing
   rate for the following reasons:

   I like that the sysfs entries are sort-of textual, related to something
   that makes sense instead of magical values that must be looked up.

   "My People" wants "% main memory scrubbed per hour" others prefer "%
   memory bandwidth used" as representation, "bandwith used" makes it easy to
   calculate both versions in one-liner scripts.

   If one later wants to scrub cache, the scaling becomes wierd for K8
   changing from "blocks of 64 byte memory" to "blocks of 64 cache lines" to
   "blocks of 64 bit".  Using "bandwidth used" makes sense in all three cases,
   (I.M.O.  anyway ;-).

 - Discovery,

   There is no way to discover the possible settings and what they do
   without reading the code and the documentation.

   *I* do not know how to make that work in a practical way.

 - Bugs(??),

   other tools can set invalid values in the memory scrub control register,
   those will read back as '-1', requiring the user to reset the scrub rate.
   This is how *I* think it should be.

 - Afflicting other areas of code,

   I made changes to edac_mc.c and edac_mc.h which will show up globally -
   this is not nice, it would be better that the memory scrubbing fuctionality
   and interface could be entirely contained within the memory controller it
   applies to.

Frithiof Jensen

edac_mc.c and its .h file is a CORE helper module for EDAC
driver modules. This provides the abstraction for device specific
drivers. It is fine to modify this CORE to provide help for
new features of the the drivers

[PATCH] EDAC: e752x byte access fix

The reading of the DRA registers should be a byte at a time (one register at a
time) instead of 4 bytes at a time (four registers).  Reading a dword at a
time retrieves erroneous information from all but the first register.  A
change was made to read in each register in a loop prior to using the data in
those registers.

Eric W. Biederman [Mon, 12 Feb 2007 08:53:00 +0000]
[PATCH] tty: update the tty layer to work with struct pid

Of kernel subsystems that work with pids the tty layer is probably the largest
consumer.  But it has the nice virtue that the assiation with a session only
lasts until the session leader exits.  Which means that no reference counting
is required.  So using struct pid winds up being a simple optimization to
avoid hash table lookups.

In the long term the use of pid_nr also ensures that when we have multiple pid
spaces mixed everything will work correctly.

[PATCH] pid: replace is_orphaned_pgrp with is_current_pgrp_orphaned

Every call to is_orphaned_pgrp passed in process_group(current) which is racy
with respect to another thread changing our process group.  It didn't bite us
because we were dealing with integers and the worse we would get would be a
stale answer.

In switching the checks to use struct pid to be a little more efficient and
prepare the way for pid namespaces this race became apparent.

So I simplified the calls to the more specialized is_current_pgrp_orphaned so
I didn't have to worry about making logic changes to avoid the race.

13 years ago[PATCH] pid: make session_of_pgrp use struct pid instead of pid_t
Eric W. Biederman [Mon, 12 Feb 2007 08:52:56 +0000]
[PATCH] pid: make session_of_pgrp use struct pid instead of pid_t

To properly implement a pid namespace I need to deal exclusively in terms of
struct pid, because pid_t values become ambiguous.

To this end session_of_pgrp is transformed to take and return a struct pid
pointer.  To avoid the need to worry about reference counting I now require my
caller to hold the appropriate locks.  Leaving callers repsonsible for
increasing the reference count if they need access to the result outside of
the locks.

Since session_of_pgrp currently only has one caller and that caller simply
uses only test the result for equality with another process group, the locking
change means I don't actually have to acquire the tasklist_lock at all.

tiocspgrp is also modified to take and release the lock.  The logic there is a
little more complicated but nothing I won't need when I convert pgrp of a tty
to a struct pid pointer.

Eric W. Biederman [Mon, 12 Feb 2007 08:52:51 +0000]
[PATCH] tty: make __proc_set_tty static

The aim of this patch set is to start wrapping up the struct pid conversions.
As such this patchset culminates with the removal of kill_pg, kill_pg_info,
__kill_pg_info, do_each_task_pid, and while_each_task_pid.

kill_proc, daemonize, and kernel_thread are still in my sights but there is
still work to get to them.

The first three are basic cleanups around disassociate_ctty, while working on
converting it I found several issues.  tty_old_pgrp can be a tricky concept to
wrap your head around.

 1 tty: Make __proc_set_tty static.
 2 tty: Clarify disassociate_ctty
 3 tty: Fix the locking for signal->session in disassociate_ctty

These just stop using the old helper functions.

 4 signal: Use kill_pgrp not kill_pg in the sunos compatibility code.
 5 signal: Rewrite kill_something_info so it uses newer helpers.

Then the grind to convert the tty layer and all of it's helper functions to
struct pid.

 6 pid: Make session_of_pgrp use struct pid instead of pid_t.
 7 pid: Use struct pid for talking about process groups in exit.c
 8 pid: Replace is_orphaned_pgrp with is_current_pgrp_orphaned
 9 tty: Update the tty layer to work with struct pid.

A final helper function update.

10 pid: Replace do/while_each_task_pid with do/while_each_pid_task

And the removal of the functions that are now unused.
11 pid: Remove now unused do_each_task_pid and while_each_task_pid
12 pid: Remove the now unused kill_pg kill_pg_info and __kill_pg_info

All of these should be fairly simple and to the point.

This patch:

Currently all users of __proc_set_tty are in tty_io.c so make the function
static.

David Brownell [Mon, 12 Feb 2007 08:52:47 +0000]
[PATCH] RTC gets sysfs wakealarm attribute

This adds a new "wakealarm" sysfs attribute to RTC class devices which support
alarm operations and are wakeup-capable:

 - It reads as either empty, or the scheduled alarm time as seconds
   since the POSIX epoch.  (That time may already have passed, since
   nothing currently enforces one-shot alarm semantics.)

 - It can be written with an alarm time in the future, again seconds
   since the POSIX epoch, which enables the alarm.

 - It can be written with an alarm time not in the future (such as 0,
   the start of the POSIX epoch) to disable the alarm.

Usage examples (some need GNU date) after "cd /sys/class/rtc/rtcN":

    alarm after 10 minutes:
# echo $(( $(cat since_epoch) + 10 * 60 )) > wakealarm
    alarm tuesday evening 10pm:
# date -d '10pm tuesday' "+%s" > wakealarm
    disable alarm:
     # echo 0 > wakealarm

This resembles the /proc/acpi/alarm file in that nothing happens when the
alarm triggers ...  except possibly waking the system from sleep.  It's also
like that in a nasty way: not much can be done to prevent one task from
clobbering another task's alarm settings.

It differs from that file in that there's no in-kernel date parser.

Note that a few RTCs ignore rtc_wkalrm.enabled when setting alarms, or aren't
set up correctly, so they won't yet behave with this attribute.

[PATCH] spi_bitbang(): use overridable setup_transfer() method

A small bug-fix for spi_bitbang: it must always call the setup_transfer
function via the overridable pointer, not assume that its
spi_bitbang_setup_transfer is sufficient.  Otherwise, if all options in the
transfers are default (0), the overrided function will never be called.

Granted, the function replacing it must call spi_bitbang_setup_transfer,
but it might also have other important things to do, even if the second
argument (the spi_transfer) is NULL.  Tested together with the other
patches on the spi_crisv32_sser and spi_crisv32_gpio drivers (not yet in
