Maciej W. Rozycki [Mon, 14 Jul 2008 20:38:33 +0000]
i2c-sibyte: SWARM I2C board initialization

 The standard rtc-m41t80.c driver cannot be used with the SWARM as it is,
because the board does not provide setup information for the I2C core.
As a result the bus and the address to probe for the M41T80 chip is not
known.

 Here is a set of changes that fix the problem:

1. swarm-i2c.c -- SWARM I2C board setup, currently for the M41T80 chip on
   the bus #1 only (there is a MAX6654 temperature sensor on the bus #0
   which may be added in the future if we have a driver for that chip).

2. The i2c-sibyte.c BCM1250A SMBus controller driver now registers its
   buses as numbered so that board setup is correctly applied.

i2c-i801: Fix handling of error conditions

Move the check of pre-transaction and post-transaction conditions to
separate functions, and adjust them a bit. Having dedicated functions
for that ensures that errors are handled in a consistent way.

Bit HOST_BUSY of the status register is read-only, so writing to it is
certainly not going to clear it. If this bit is set then we simply
don't want to start the transaction, as it means that somebody else
(ACPI, SMM?) is already using the controller.

Jean Delvare [Mon, 14 Jul 2008 20:38:29 +0000]
i2c/eeprom: Fall back to SMBus read word transactions

When I2C block reads are not supported by the underlying adapter, use
SMBus read word transactions instead of consecutive byte reads.
Reasons for this change are:

* The consecutive byte read approach is not safe on multi-master buses.

* While consecutive byte reads have less overhead if you only count the
  bytes on the bus, it takes more than twice as many transactions as
  with SMBus read word transactions, and each transaction has a cost:
  taking and releasing the adapter mutex, and for polling drivers,
  waiting for the transaction to complete.

This change yields a significant performance boost at HZ=250 with
EEPROMs on an Intel 82801 bus (basically twice as fast.)

SMBus read word transactions are widely supported so I don't expect
compatibility issues.

Note that I took a conservative approach here, adding I2C_CLASS_SPD to
many drivers that have no idea whether they can host SPD EEPROMs or not.
This is to make sure that the eeprom driver doesn't stop probing buses
where SPD EEPROMs or equivalent live.

So, bus driver maintainers and users should feel free to remove the SPD
class from drivers those buses never have SPD EEPROMs or they don't
want the eeprom driver to bind to them. Likewise, feel free to add the

11 years agocpusets, hotplug, scheduler: fix scheduler domain breakage
Dmitry Adamushko [Sun, 13 Jul 2008 00:10:29 +0000]
cpusets, hotplug, scheduler: fix scheduler domain breakage

Commit f18f982ab ("sched: CPU hotplug events must not destroy scheduler
domains created by the cpusets") introduced a hotplug-related problem as
described below:

Upon CPU_DOWN_PREPARE,

  update_sched_domains() -> detach_destroy_domains(&cpu_online_map)

does the following:

/*
 * Force a reinitialization of the sched domains hierarchy. The domains
 * and groups cannot be updated in place without racing with the balancing
 * code, so we temporarily attach all running cpus to the NULL domain
 * which will prevent rebalancing while the sched domains are recalculated.
 */

The sched-domains should be rebuilt when a CPU_DOWN ops. has been
completed, effectively either upon CPU_DEAD{_FROZEN} (upon success) or
CPU_DOWN_FAILED{_FROZEN} (upon failure -- restore the things to their
initial state). That's what update_sched_domains() also does but only
for !CPUSETS case.

With f18f982ab, sched-domains' reinitialization is delegated to
CPUSETS code:

cpuset_handle_cpuhp() -> common_cpu_mem_hotplug_unplug() ->
rebuild_sched_domains()

Being called for CPU_UP_PREPARE and if its callback is called after
update_sched_domains()), it just negates all the work done by
update_sched_domains() -- i.e. a soon-to-be-offline cpu is included in
the sched-domains and that makes it visible for the load-balancer
while the CPU_DOWN ops. is in progress.

__migrate_live_tasks() moves the tasks off a 'dead' cpu (it's already
"offline" when this function is called).

try_to_wake_up() is called for one of these tasks from another CPU ->
the load-balancer (wake_idle()) picks up a "dead" CPU and places the
task on it. Then e.g. BUG_ON(rq->nr_running) detects this a bit later
-> oops.

cifs: fix wksidarr declaration to be big-endian friendly

The current definition of wksidarr works fine on little endian arches
(since cpu_to_le32 is a no-op there), but on big-endian arches, it fails
to compile with this error:

error: braced-group within expression allowed only inside a function

The problem is that this static declaration has cpu_to_le32 embedded
within it, and that expands into a function macro.  We need to use
__constant_cpu_to_le32() instead.

cifs: fix inode leak in cifs_get_inode_info_unix

Try this:

    mount a share with unix extensions
    create a file on it
    umount the share

You'll get the following message in the ring buffer:

VFS: Busy inodes after unmount of cifs. Self-destruct in 5 seconds.  Have a
nice day...

...the problem is that cifs_get_inode_info_unix is creating and hashing
a new inode even when it's going to return error anyway. The first
lookup when creating a file returns an error so we end up leaking this
inode before we do the actual create. This appears to be a regression
caused by commit 0e4bbde94fdc33f5b3d793166b21bf768ca3e098.

ov7670: clean up ov7670_read semantics

Cortland Setlow pointed out a bug in ov7670.c where the result from
ov7670_read() was just being checked for !0, rather than <0.  This made me
realize that ov7670_read's semantics were rather confusing; it both fills
in 'value' with the result, and returns it.  This is goes against general
kernel convention; so rather than fixing callers, let's fix the function.

This makes ov7670_read return <0 in the case of an error, and 0 upon
success. Thus, code like:

res = ov7670_read(...);
if (!res)
goto error;

..will work properly.

fbdev: bugfix for multiprocess defio

This patch is a bugfix for how defio handles multiple processes manipulating
the same framebuffer.

Thanks to Bernard Blackham for identifying this bug.

It occurs when two applications mmap the same framebuffer and concurrently
write to the same page.  Normally, this doesn't occur since only a single
process mmaps the framebuffer.  The symptom of the bug is that the mapping
applications will hang.  The cause is that defio incorrectly tries to add the
same page twice to the pagelist.  The solution I have is to walk the pagelist
and check for a duplicate before adding.  Since I needed to walk the pagelist,
I now also keep the pagelist in sorted order.

[SCSI] bsg: fix oops on remove

If you do a modremove of any sas driver, you run into an oops on
shutdown when the host is removed (coming from the host bsg device).
The root cause seems to be that there's a use after free of the
bsg_class_device:  In bsg_kref_release_function, this is used (to do a
put_device(bcg->parent) after bcg->release has been called.  In sas (and
possibly many other things) bcd->release frees the queue which contains
the bsg_class_device, so we get a put_device on unreferenced memory.
Fix this by taking a copy of the pointer to the parent before releasing
bsg.

onboard on older motherboards which don't handle MSI correctly, so

11 years ago[SCSI] ipr: Fix HDIO_GET_IDENTITY oops for SATA devices
Brian King [Fri, 11 Jul 2008 18:37:50 +0000]
[SCSI] ipr: Fix HDIO_GET_IDENTITY oops for SATA devices

Currently, ipr does not support HDIO_GET_IDENTITY to SATA devices.
An oops occurs if userspace attempts to send the command. Since hald
issues the command, ensure we fail the ioctl in ipr. This is a
temporary solution to the oops. Once the ipr libata EH conversion
is upstream, ipr will fully support HDIO_GET_IDENTITY.

Dave Chinner [Fri, 11 Jul 2008 07:43:55 +0000]
Fix reference counting race on log buffers

When we release the iclog, we do an atomic_dec_and_lock to determine if
we are the last reference and need to trigger update of log headers and
writeout.  However, in xlog_state_get_iclog_space() we also need to
check if we have the last reference count there.  If we do, we release
the log buffer, otherwise we decrement the reference count.

But the compare and decrement in xlog_state_get_iclog_space() is not
atomic, so both places can see a reference count of 2 and neither will
release the iclog.  That leads to a filesystem hang.

Close the race by replacing the atomic_read() and atomic_dec() pair with
atomic_add_unless() to ensure that they are executed atomically.

libata-acpi: filter out DIPM enable

Some BIOSen enable DIPM via _GTF which causes command timeouts under
certain configuration.  This didn't occur on 2.6.25 because 2.6.25
defaulted to SRST, so _GTF wasn't executed during boot probe, so ahci
host reset disabled DIPM and as _GTF wasn't executed after SRST, DIPM
wasn't enabled.  On 2.6.26, hardreset is used during probe and after
probe _GTF is executed enabling DIPM and thus the failures.

This patch could theoretically disable DIPM on machines which used to
have it enabled on 2.6.25 but AFAIK ahci is currently the only driver
which uses SATA ACPI hierarchy (_SDD) and as the host reset would have
always disabled DIPM, this shouldn't happen.

The IRQ rate reported back by the RTC is incorrect when HPET is enabled.

Newer hardware that has HPET to emulate the legacy RTC device gets this value
wrong since after it sets the rate, it returns before setting the variable

11 years agotun: Persistent devices can get stuck in xoff state
Max Krasnyansky [Thu, 10 Jul 2008 23:59:11 +0000]
tun: Persistent devices can get stuck in xoff state

The scenario goes like this. App stops reading from tun/tap.
TX queue gets full and driver does netif_stop_queue().
App closes fd and TX queue gets flushed as part of the cleanup.
Next time the app opens tun/tap and starts reading from it but
the xoff state is not cleared. We're stuck.
Normally xoff state is cleared when netdev is brought up. But
in the case of persistent devices this happens only during
initial setup.

The fix is trivial. If device is already up when an app opens
it we clear xoff state and that gets things moving again.

and analyzed it:

  "The register %ecx looks innocent but is very important here. The disassembly:

       mov    %edx,%ecx
       shr    $0x2,%ecx
       rep stos %eax,%es:(%edi) <-- the fault

   So %ecx has been loaded from %edx... which is 0x6b6b6b6b/POISON_FREE.
   (0x6b6b6b6b >> 2 == 0x1adadada.)

   %ecx is the counter for the memset, from here:

       memset(object, 0, c->objsize);

  i.e. %ecx was loaded from c->objsize, so "c" must have been freed.
  Where did "c" come from? Uh-oh...

       c = get_cpu_slab(s, smp_processor_id());

  This looks like it has very much to do with CPU hotplug/unplug. Is
  there a race between SLUB/hotplug since the CPU slab is used after it
  has been freed?"

Good analysis.

Yeah, it's possible that a caller of kmem_cache_alloc() -> slab_alloc()
can be migrated on another CPU right after local_irq_restore() and
before memset().  The inital cpu can become offline in the mean time (or
a migration is a consequence of the CPU going offline) so its
'kmem_cache_cpu' structure gets freed ( slab_cpuup_callback).

At some point of time the caller continues on another CPU having an
obsolete pointer...

exec: fix stack excutability without PT_GNU_STACK

Kernel Bugzilla #11063 points out that on some architectures (e.g. x86_32)
exec'ing an ELF without a PT_GNU_STACK program header should default to an
executable stack; but this got broken by the unlimited argv feature because
stack vma is now created before the right personality has been established:
so breaking old binaries using nested function trampolines.

Therefore re-evaluate VM_STACK_FLAGS in setup_arg_pages, where stack
vm_flags used to be set, before the mprotect_fixup.  Checking through
our existing VM_flags, none would have changed since insert_vm_struct:
so this seems safer than finding a way through the personality labyrinth.

Fix PREEMPT_RCU without HOTPLUG_CPU

PREEMPT_RCU without HOTPLUG_CPU is broken.  The rcu_online_cpu is called
to initially populate rcu_cpu_online_map with all online CPUs when the
hotplug event handler is installed, and also to populate the map with
CPUs as they come online.  The former case is meant to happen with and
without HOTPLUG_CPU, but without HOTPLUG_CPU, the rcu_offline_cpu
function is no-oped -- while it still gets called, it does not set the
rcu CPU map.

With a blank RCU CPU map, grace periods get to tick by completely
oblivious to active RCU read side critical sections.  This results in
free-before-grace bugs.

Fix is obvious once the problem is known. (Also, change __devinit to
__cpuinit so the function gets thrown away on !HOTPLUG_CPU kernels).
