[IPV6]: Replace bogus instances of inet->recverr

While looking at this problem I noticed that IPv6 was sometimes
looking at inet->recverr which is bogus.  Here is a patch to
correct that and use np->recverr.

Hugh Dickins [Tue, 19 Apr 2005 20:29:19 +0000]
[PATCH] freepgt: free_pgtables from FIRST_USER_ADDRESS

The patches to free_pgtables by vma left problems on any architectures which
leave some user address page table entries unencapsulated by vma.  Andi has
fixed the 32-bit vDSO on x86_64 to use a vma.  Now fix arm (and arm26), whose
first PAGE_SIZE is reserved (perhaps) for machine vectors.

Our calls to free_pgtables must not touch that area, and exit_mmap's
BUG_ON(nr_ptes) must allow that arm's get_pgd_slow may (or may not) have
allocated an extra page table, which its free_pgd_slow would free later.

FIRST_USER_PGD_NR has misled me and others: until all the arches define
FIRST_USER_ADDRESS instead, a hack in mmap.c to derive one from t'other.  This
patch fixes the bugs, the remaining patches just clean it up.

Hugh Dickins [Tue, 19 Apr 2005 20:29:16 +0000]
[PATCH] freepgt: hugetlb_free_pgd_range

ia64 and ppc64 had hugetlb_free_pgtables functions which were no longer being
called, and it wasn't obvious what to do about them.

The ppc64 case turns out to be easy: the associated tables are noted elsewhere
and freed later, safe to either skip its hugetlb areas or go through the
motions of freeing nothing.  Since ia64 does need a special case, restore to
ppc64 the special case of skipping them.

The ia64 hugetlb case has been broken since pgd_addr_end went in, though it
probably appeared to work okay if you just had one such area; in fact it's
been broken much longer if you consider a long munmap spanning from another
region into the hugetlb region.

In the ia64 hugetlb region, more virtual address bits are available than in
the other regions, yet the page tables are structured the same way: the page
at the bottom is larger.  Here we need to scale down each addr before passing
it to the standard free_pgd_range.  Was about to write a hugely_scaled_down
macro, but found htlbpage_to_page already exists for just this purpose.  Fixed
off-by-one in ia64 is_hugepage_only_range.

Uninline free_pgd_range to make it available to ia64.  Make sure the
vma-gathering loop in free_pgtables cannot join a hugepage_only_range to any
other (safe to join huges?  probably but don't bother).

Hugh Dickins [Tue, 19 Apr 2005 20:29:15 +0000]
[PATCH] freepgt: remove MM_VM_SIZE(mm)

There's only one usage of MM_VM_SIZE(mm) left, and it's a troublesome macro
because mm doesn't contain the (32-bit emulation?) info needed.  But it too is
only needed because we ignore the end from the vma list.

We could make flush_pgtables return that end, or unmap_vmas.  Choose the
latter, since it's a natural fit with unmap_mapping_range_vma needing to know
its restart addr.  This does make more than minimal change, but if unmap_vmas
had returned the end before, this is how we'd have done it, rather than
storing the break_addr in zap_details.

unmap_vmas used to return count of vmas scanned, but that's just debug which
hasn't been useful in a while; and if we want the map_count 0 on exit check
back, it can easily come from the final remove_vm_struct loop.

Hugh Dickins [Tue, 19 Apr 2005 20:29:15 +0000]
[PATCH] freepgt: free_pgtables use vma list

Recent woes with some arches needing their own pgd_addr_end macro; and 4-level
clear_page_range regression since 2.6.10's clear_page_tables; and its
long-standing well-known inefficiency in searching throughout the higher-level
page tables for those few entries to clear and free: all can be blamed on
ignoring the list of vmas when we free page tables.

Replace exit_mmap's clear_page_range of the total user address space by
free_pgtables operating on the mm's vma list; unmap_region use it in the same
way, giving floor and ceiling beyond which it may not free tables.  This
brings lmbench fork/exec/sh numbers back to 2.6.10 (unless preempt is enabled,
in which case latency fixes spoil unmap_vmas throughput).

Beware: the do_mmap_pgoff driver failure case must now use unmap_region
instead of zap_page_range, since a page table might have been allocated, and
can only be freed while it is touched by some vma.

Move free_pgtables from mmap.c to memory.c, where its lower levels are adapted
from the clear_page_range levels.  (Most of free_pgtables' old code was
actually for a non-existent case, prev not properly set up, dating from before
hch gave us split_vma.) Pass mmu_gather** in the public interfaces, since we
might want to add latency lockdrops later; but no attempt to do so yet, going
by vma should itself reduce latency.

But what if is_hugepage_only_range?  Those ia64 and ppc64 cases need careful
examination: put that off until a later patch of the series.

What of x86_64's 32bit vdso page __map_syscall32 maps outside any vma?

And the range to sparc64's flush_tlb_pgtables?  It's less clear to me now that
we need to do more than is done here - every PMD_SIZE ever occupied will be
flushed, do we really have to flush every PGDIR_SIZE ever partially occupied?
A shame to complicate it unnecessarily.

Special thanks to David Miller for time spent repairing my ceilings.

[PATCH] debugfs: Reduce <linux/debugfs.h> dependencies

The current <linux/debugfs.h> include file is a little fragile in that
it is not self-contained and hence may cause compile warnings or
errors depending on the files included before it, the kernel config
and the architecture.  This patch makes things a little more robust by:

 - including <linux/types.h> to get definitions of u32, mode_t, and so on.
 - forward declaring struct file_operations.
 - including <linux/err.h> when CONFIG_DEBUG_FS is not set

The last change is particularly useful, as a kernel developer is
likely to build with debugfs always enabled and never see the build
breakage cased if debugfs is disabled.

[PATCH] export platform_add_devices

platform_add_devices can be used from within modules, so it should be
exported.  This can for example happen if you have hotpluggable firmware in
an FPGA on a system on chip processor; in our case the FPGA is probed for

(akpm: I think this is reasonable from a licensing POV: it's unlikely that
anyone would be interested in merging such specialised modules into mainline,
and it's a GPL export).

[PATCH] I2C: Fix incorrect sysfs file permissions in it87 and via686a drivers

The it87 and via686a hardware monitoring drivers each create a sysfs
file named "alarms" in R/W mode, while they should really create it in
read-only mode. Since we don't provide a store function for these files,
write attempts to these files will do something undefined (I guess) and
bad (I am sure). My own try resulted in a locked terminal (where I
attempted the write) and a 100% CPU load until next reboot.

As a side note, wouldn't it make sense to check, when creating sysfs
files, that readable files have a non-NULL show method, and writable
files have a non-NULL store method? I know drivers are not supposed to
do stupid things, but there is already a BUG_ON for several conditions
in sysfs_create_file, so maybe we could add two more?

    field got set, so Windows would ignore data packets it received.

  - More consistent handling of CDC output filters (but not yet hooking

  - Zerocopy RX for RNDIS packets too (saving CPU cycles).

  - Use the pre-allocated interrupt/status request and buffer, rather
    than allocating and freeing one of each every few seconds (which
    could fail).

  - Some more "sparse" tweaks, making both dual-speed and single-speed

  - RNDIS speeds are reported in units of 100bps, not bps.

This is the first of a few installments of PM API updates to match the

USB device drivers (for USB interfaces), and it changes the handful of
drivers which currently implement suspend methods:

    - <linux/usb.h> and usbcore, signature change

    - Some drivers only changed the signature, net effect this just
      shuts up "sparse -Wbitwise":
* hid-core
* stir4200

    - Two network drivers did that, and also grew slightly more
      featureful suspend code ... they now properly shut down
      their activities.  (As should stir4200...)
* pegasus
* usbnet

Note that the Wake-On-Lan (WOL) support in pegasus doesn't yet work; looks
to me like it's missing a request to turn it on, vs just configuring it.

15 years ago[PATCH] usb resume fixes
David Brownell [Tue, 19 Apr 2005 00:39:22 +0000]
[PATCH] usb resume fixes

This has a variety of updates to the shared suspend/resume code for
PCI based USB host controllers.

    - Cope with pm_message_t replacing the target system state.
      This is actually a loss of functionality; PCI D1 and D2
      states will no longer be used, and it's no longer knowable
      that D3cold is on the way so power will be lost.

    - Most importantly, some of the resume paths are reworked and
      cleaned up.  They're now an exact mirror of suspend paths,
      and more care is taken to ensure the hardware is reactivated
      before the hardware re-enables interrupts.

Plus comment and diagnostic cleanups; there are some nasty cases here
especially combined with swsusp, now they're somewhat commented.

[PATCH] sparc64: Fix stat

Like Alpha, sparc64's struct stat was defined before we had the
nanosecond et al.  fields added.  So like Alpha I have to cons up a
struct stat64 to get this stuff.  I'll work on the glibc bits soon.

Also, we were forgetting to fill in the nanosecond fields in the sparc
compat stat64 syscalls.

[PATCH] qla2xxx: cleanup DMA mappings...

  Don't use cmd->request->nr_hw_segments as it may not be initialized
  (SG_IO in particular bypasses anything that initializes this and just
  uses scsi_do_req to insert a scsi_request directly on the head of the
  queue) and a bogus value here can trip up the checks to make sure that
  the number of segments will fit in the queue ring buffer, resulting in
  commands that are never completed.

  Fix up several issues with PCI DMA mapping and failure to check return
  values on the mappings.

  Make the check for space in the ring buffer happen after the DMA mapping
  is done since any checks done before the mapping has taken place are
  bogus.

[PATCH] Add 32-bit compatibility for NFSv4 mount

This adds 32-bit compatibility for mounting an NFSv4 mount on a 64-bit
kernel (such as happens with PPC64).

The problem is that the mount data for the NFS4 mount process includes
auxilliary data pointers, probably because the NFS4 mount data may
conceivably exceed PAGE_SIZE in size - thus breaking against the hard
limit imposed by sys_mount().

[PATCH] SELinux: fix deadlock on dcache lock

This fixes a deadlock on the dcache lock detected during testing at IBM
by moving the logging of the current executable information from the
SELinux avc_audit function to audit_log_exit (via an audit_log_task_info
helper) for processing upon syscall exit.

For consistency, the patch also removes the logging of other
task-related information from avc_audit, deferring handling to
audit_log_exit instead.

This allows simplification of the avc_audit code, allows the exe
information to be obtained more reliably, always includes the comm
information (useful for scripts), and avoids including bogus task
information for checks performed from irq or softirq.
