13 years agokconfig/lxdialog: add a new theme bluetitle which is now default
Sam Ravnborg [Mon, 24 Jul 2006 20:19:51 +0000]
kconfig/lxdialog: add a new theme bluetitle which is now default

The bluetitle theme is a slightly modified version of the colorscheme
that -mm users has been used to. The bluetitle is more readable especially
on some LCD screens so it is now default.
Anyone that really wants the old color selection can get it by selecting
the classic color theme:
make MENUCONFIG_COLOR=classic menuconfig

The bluetitle theme was modified by Roman Zippel <zippel@linux-m68k.org>
to further improve readability on LCD screens.

Currently if the sender is sending small messages, it can cause a receiver
to run out of receive buffer space even when the advertised receive window
is still open and results in packet drops and retransmissions. Including

[BNX2]: Disable MSI on 5706 if AMD 8132 bridge is present.

MSI is defined to be 32-bit write.  The 5706 does 64-bit MSI writes
with byte enables disabled on the unused 32-bit word.  This is legal
but causes problems on the AMD 8132 which will eventually stop
responding after a while.

Without this patch, the MSI test done by the driver during open will
pass, but MSI will eventually stop working after a few MSIs are
written by the device.

AMD believes this incompatibility is unique to the 5706, and
prefers to locally disable MSI rather than globally disabling it
using pci_msi_quirk.

Update version to 1.4.45.

13 years ago[PATCH] cpuset: fix obscure attach_task vs exiting race
Paul Jackson [Fri, 29 Sep 2006 09:01:48 +0000]
[PATCH] cpuset: fix obscure attach_task vs exiting race

Fix obscure race condition in kernel/cpuset.c attach_task() code.

There is basically zero chance of anyone accidentally being harmed by this
race.

It requires a special 'micro-stress' load and a special timing loop hacks
in the kernel to hit in less than an hour, and even then you'd have to hit
it hundreds or thousands of times, followed by some unusual and senseless
cpuset configuration requests, including removing the top cpuset, to cause
any visibly harm affects.

One could, with perhaps a few days or weeks of such effort, get the
reference count on the top cpuset below zero, and manage to crash the
kernel by asking to remove the top cpuset.

I found it by code inspection.

The race was introduced when 'the_top_cpuset_hack' was introduced, and one
piece of code was not updated.  An old check for a possibly null task
cpuset pointer needed to be changed to a check for a task marked
PF_EXITING.  The pointer can't be null anymore, thanks to
the_top_cpuset_hack (documented in kernel/cpuset.c).  But the task could
have gone into PF_EXITING state after it was found in the task_list scan.

If a task is PF_EXITING in this code, it is possible that its task->cpuset
pointer is pointing to the top cpuset due to the_top_cpuset_hack, rather
than because the top_cpuset was that tasks last valid cpuset.  In that
case, the wrong cpuset reference counter would be decremented.

The fix is trivial.  Instead of failing the system call if the tasks cpuset
pointer is null here, fail it if the task is in PF_EXITING state.

The code for 'the_top_cpuset_hack' that changes an exiting tasks cpuset to
the top_cpuset is done without locking, so could happen at anytime.  But it
is done during the exit handling, after the PF_EXITING flag is set.  So if
we verify that a task is still not PF_EXITING after we copy out its cpuset
pointer (into 'oldcs', below), we know that 'oldcs' is not one of these
hack references to the top_cpuset.

[PATCH] lockdep core: improve the lock-chain-hash

With CONFIG_DEBUG_LOCK_ALLOC turned off i was getting sporadic failures in
the locking self-test:

  ------------>
  | Locking API testsuite:
  ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                   | spin |wlock |rlock |mutex | wsem | rsem |
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
                       A-A deadlock:  ok  |  ok  |  ok  |  ok  |  ok  |  ok  |
                   A-B-B-A deadlock:  ok  |  ok  |  ok  |  ok  |  ok  |  ok  |
               A-B-B-C-C-A deadlock:  ok  |  ok  |  ok  |  ok  |  ok  |  ok  |
               A-B-C-A-B-C deadlock:  ok  |  ok  |  ok  |  ok  |  ok  |  ok  |
           A-B-B-C-C-D-D-A deadlock:  ok  |FAILED|  ok  |  ok  |  ok  |  ok  |
           A-B-C-D-B-D-D-A deadlock:  ok  |  ok  |  ok  |  ok  |  ok  |  ok  |
           A-B-C-D-B-C-D-A deadlock:  ok  |  ok  |  ok  |  ok  |  ok  |FAILED|

after much debugging it turned out to be caused by accidental chain-hash
key collisions.  The current hash is:

 #define iterate_chain_key(key1, key2) \
(((key1) << MAX_LOCKDEP_KEYS_BITS/2) ^ \
((key1) >> (64-MAX_LOCKDEP_KEYS_BITS/2)) ^ \
  (key2))

where MAX_LOCKDEP_KEYS_BITS is 11.  This hash is pretty good as it will
shift by 5 bits in every iteration, where every new ID 'mixed' into the
hash would have up to 11 bits.  But because there was a 6 bits overlap
between subsequent IDs and their high bits tended to be similar, there was
a chance for accidental chain-hash collision for a low number of locks
held.

the solution is to shift by 11 bits:

 #define iterate_chain_key(key1, key2) \
(((key1) << MAX_LOCKDEP_KEYS_BITS) ^ \
((key1) >> (64-MAX_LOCKDEP_KEYS_BITS)) ^ \
  (key2))

This keeps the hash perfect up to 5 locks held, but even above that the
hash is still good because 11 bits is a relative prime to the total 64
bits, so a complete match will only occur after 64 held locks (which doesnt
happen in Linux).  Even after 5 locks held, entropy of the 5 IDs mixed into

[PATCH] Fix locking for tty drivers when doing urgent characters

If you send a priority character (as is done for flow control) then the tty
driver can either have its own method for "jumping the queue" or the characrer
can be queued normally.  In the latter case we call the write method but
without the atomic_write_lock taken elsewhere.

Make this consistent.  Note that the send_xchar method if implemented remains
outside of the lock as it can jump ahead of a current write so must not be
locked out by it.

13 years ago[PATCH] Generic infrastructure for acls
Andreas Gruenbacher [Fri, 29 Sep 2006 09:01:34 +0000]
[PATCH] Generic infrastructure for acls

The patches solve the following problem: We want to grant access to devices
based on who is logged in from where, etc.  This includes switching back and
forth between multiple user sessions, etc.

Using ACLs to define device access for logged-in users gives us all the
flexibility we need in order to fully solve the problem.

Device special files nowadays usually live on tmpfs, hence tmpfs ACLs.

Different distros have come up with solutions that solve the problem to
different degrees: SUSE uses a resource manager which tracks login sessions
and sets ACLs on device inodes as appropriate.  RedHat uses pam_console, which
changes the primary file ownership to the logged-in user.  Others use a set of
groups that users must be in in order to be granted the appropriate accesses.

The freedesktop.org project plans to implement a combination of a
console-tracker and a HAL-device-list based solution to grant access to
devices to users, and more distros will likely follow this approach.

These patches have first been posted here on 2 February 2005, and again
on 8 January 2006. We have been shipping them in SLES9 and SLES10 with
no problems reported.  The previous submission is archived here:

13 years ago[PATCH] enforce RLIMIT_NOFILE in poll()
Chris Snook [Fri, 29 Sep 2006 09:01:33 +0000]
[PATCH] enforce RLIMIT_NOFILE in poll()

POSIX states that poll() shall fail with EINVAL if nfds > OPEN_MAX.  In
this context, POSIX is referring to sysconf(OPEN_MAX), which is the value
of current->signal->rlim[RLIMIT_NOFILE].rlim_cur in the linux kernel, not
the compile-time constant which happens to also be named OPEN_MAX.  In the
current code, an application may poll up to max_fdset file descriptors,
even if this exceeds RLIMIT_NOFILE.  The current code also breaks
applications which poll more than max_fdset descriptors, which worked circa
2.4.18 when the check was against NR_OPEN, which is 1024*1024.  This patch
enforces the limit precisely as POSIX defines, even if RLIMIT_NOFILE has
been changed at run time with ulimit -n.

To elaborate on the rationale for this, there are three cases:

1) RLIMIT_NOFILE is at the default value of 1024

In this (default) case, the patch changes nothing.  Calls with nfds > 1024
fail with EINVAL both before and after the patch, and calls with nfds <=
1024 pass the check both before and after the patch, since 1024 is the
initial value of max_fdset.

2) RLIMIT_NOFILE has been raised above the default

In this case, poll() becomes more permissive, allowing polling up to
RLIMIT_NOFILE file descriptors even if less than 1024 have been opened.
The patch won't introduce new errors here.  If an application somehow
depends on poll() failing when it polls with duplicate or invalid file
descriptors, it's already broken, since this is already allowed below 1024,
and will also work above 1024 if enough file descriptors have been open at
some point to cause max_fdset to have been increased above nfds.

3) RLIMIT_NOFILE has been lowered below the default

In this case, the system administrator or the user has gone out of their
way to protect the system from inefficient (or malicious) applications
wasting kernel memory.  The current code allows polling up to 1024 file
descriptors even if RLIMIT_NOFILE is much lower, which is not what the user
or administrator intended.  Well-written applications which only poll
valid, unique file descriptors will never notice the difference, because
they'll hit the limit on open() first.  If an application gets broken
because of the patch in this case, then it was already poorly/maliciously
designed, and allowing it to work in the past was a violation of POSIX and
a DoS risk on low-resource systems.

With this patch, poll() will permit exactly what POSIX suggests, no more,
no less, and for any run-time value set with ulimit -n, not just 256 or
1024.  There are existing apps which which poll a large number of file
descriptors, some of which may be invalid, and if those numbers stradle
1024, they currently fail with or without the patch in -mm, though they
worked fine under 2.4.18.

[PATCH] remove static variable mm/page-writeback.c:total_pages

page-writeback.c has a static local variable "total_pages", which is the

There is a global variable "vm_total_pages", which is the total number of

Both are assigned from the return value of nr_free_pagecache_pages().

This patch removes the local variable and uses the global variable in that
place.

One more issue with the local static variable "total_pages" is that it is
not updated when new pages are hot-added.  Since vm_total_pages is updated
when new pages are hot-added, this patch fixes that problem too.

explaining the circumstances under which a function should return 0 for
failure and non-zero for success as opposed to a negative error code for

13 years ago[PATCH] cpuset: hotunplug cpus and mems in all cpusets
Paul Jackson [Fri, 29 Sep 2006 09:01:17 +0000]
[PATCH] cpuset: hotunplug cpus and mems in all cpusets

The cpuset code handling hot unplug of CPUs or Memory Nodes was incorrect -
it could remove a CPU or Node from the top cpuset, while leaving it still
in some child cpusets.

One basic rule of cpusets is that each cpusets cpus and mems are subsets of
its parents.  The cpuset hot unplug code violated this rule.

So the cpuset hotunplug handler must walk down the tree, removing any
removed CPU or Node from all cpusets.

However, it is not allowed to make a cpusets cpus or mems become empty.
They can only transition from empty to non-empty, not back.

So if the last CPU or Node would be removed from a cpuset by the above
walk, we scan back up the cpuset hierarchy, finding the nearest ancestor
that still has something online, and copy its CPU or Memory placement.

13 years ago[PATCH] cpuset: top_cpuset tracks hotplug changes to node_online_map
Paul Jackson [Fri, 29 Sep 2006 09:01:16 +0000]
[PATCH] cpuset: top_cpuset tracks hotplug changes to node_online_map

Change the list of memory nodes allowed to tasks in the top (root) nodeset
to dynamically track what cpus are online, using a call to a cpuset hook
from the memory hotplug code.  Make this top cpus file read-only.

On systems that have cpusets configured in their kernel, but that aren't
actively using cpusets (for some distros, this covers the majority of
systems) all tasks end up in the top cpuset.

If that system does support memory hotplug, then these tasks cannot make
use of memory nodes that are added after system boot, because the memory
nodes are not allowed in the top cpuset.  This is a surprising regression
over earlier kernels that didn't have cpusets enabled.

One key motivation for this change is to remain consistent with the
behaviour for the top_cpuset's 'cpus', which is also read-only, and which
automatically tracks the cpu_online_map.

This change also has the minor benefit that it fixes a long standing,
little noticed, minor bug in cpusets.  The cpuset performance tweak to
short circuit the cpuset_zone_allowed() check on systems with just a single
cpuset (see 'number_of_cpusets', in linux/cpuset.h) meant that simply
changing the 'mems' of the top_cpuset had no affect, even though the change
(the write system call) appeared to succeed.  With the following change,
that write to the 'mems' file fails -EACCES, and the 'mems' file stubbornly
refuses to be changed via user space writes.  Thus no one should be mislead
into thinking they've changed the top_cpusets's 'mems' when in affect they
haven't.

In order to keep the behaviour of cpusets consistent between systems
actively making use of them and systems not using them, this patch changes
the behaviour of the 'mems' file in the top (root) cpuset, making it read
only, and making it automatically track the value of node_online_map.  Thus
tasks in the top cpuset will have automatic use of hot plugged memory nodes
allowed by their cpuset.

A previous patch to allow an exiting task to OOM kill itself (and thereby
avoid a little deadlock) introduced a problem.  We don't want the
PF_EXITING task, even if it is 'current', to access mem reserves if there
is already a TIF_MEMDIE process in the system sucking up reserves.

Also make the commenting a little bit clearer, and note that our current
scheme of effectively single threading the OOM killer is not itself
perfect.

TASK_DEAD state is set at the end of do_exit(), this means that p->mm
was already set == NULL by exit_mm(), so this task was already rejected
by 'if (!p->mm)' above.

Note also that the caller holds tasklist_lock, this means that p can't

Also, remove open-coded is_init().

task_struct->state == EXIT_DEAD is a very special case, to avoid a confusion
it makes sense to introduce a new state, TASK_DEAD, while EXIT_DEAD should

Oleg Nesterov [Fri, 29 Sep 2006 09:01:09 +0000]
[PATCH] set EXIT_DEAD state in do_exit(), not in schedule()

schedule() checks PF_DEAD on every context switch and sets ->state = EXIT_DEAD
to ensure that the exiting task will be deactivated.  Note that this EXIT_DEAD
is in fact a "random" value, we can use any bit except normal TASK_XXX values.

It is better to set this state in do_exit() along with PF_DEAD flag and remove
that check in schedule().

We are safe wrt concurrent try_to_wake_up() (for example ptrace, tkill), it
can not change task's ->state: the 'state' argument of try_to_wake_up() can't
have EXIT_DEAD bit.  And in case when try_to_wake_up() sees a stale value of
->state == TASK_RUNNING it will do nothing.

Adds a missing exit, if the file that should be parsed couldn't be opened.
Without it crashes with a segfault, cause the filedescriptor is accessed

During testing I've found that the mount pending flag can be left set at
exit from autofs4_lookup after a failed mount request.  This shouldn't be

[PATCH] copy_process: cosmetic ->ioprio tweak

copy_process:
// holds tasklist_lock + ->siglock
       /*
        * inherit ioprio
        */
       p->ioprio = current->ioprio;

Why?  ->ioprio was already copied in dup_task_struct().  I guess this is
needed to ensure that the child can't escape
sys_ioprio_set(IOPRIO_WHO_{PGRP,USER}), yes?

In that case we don't need ->siglock held, and the comment should be
updated.

13 years ago[PATCH] sched_setscheduler: fix? policy checks
Oleg Nesterov [Fri, 29 Sep 2006 09:00:50 +0000]
[PATCH] sched_setscheduler: fix? policy checks

I am not sure this patch is correct: I can't understand what the current
code does, and I don't know what it was supposed to do.

The comment says:

 * can't change policy, except between SCHED_NORMAL
 * and SCHED_BATCH:

The code:

if (((policy != SCHED_NORMAL && p->policy != SCHED_BATCH) &&
(policy != SCHED_BATCH && p->policy != SCHED_NORMAL)) &&

But this is equivalent to:

if ( (is_rt_policy(policy) && has_rt_policy(p)) &&

which means something different.  We can't _decrease_ the current
->rt_priority with such a check (if rlim[RLIMIT_RTPRIO] == 0).

Probably, it was supposed to be:

if ( !(policy == SCHED_NORMAL && p->policy == SCHED_BATCH)  &&
!(policy == SCHED_BATCH  && p->policy == SCHED_NORMAL)

this matches the comment, but strange: it doesn't allow to _drop_ the
realtime priority when rlim[RLIMIT_RTPRIO] == 0.

I think the right check would be:

/* can't set/change rt policy */
if (is_rt_policy(policy) &&
policy != p->policy &&
!rlim_rtprio)
return -EPERM;
