The code to overwrite/reread for addressing read errors in raid1/raid10
currently assumes that the read will not alter the buffer which could be used

So we split the loops into a overwrite loop and a separate re-read loop, so
that the writing is complete before reading is attempted.

13 years ago[PATCH] md: remove personality numbering from md
NeilBrown [Fri, 6 Jan 2006 08:20:36 +0000]
[PATCH] md: remove personality numbering from md

md supports multiple different RAID level, each being implemented by a
'personality' (which is often in a separate module).

These personalities have fairly artificial 'numbers'.  The numbers
are use to:
 1- provide an index into an array where the various personalities
    are recorded
 2- identify the module (via an alias) which implements are particular
    personality.

Neither of these uses really justify the existence of personality numbers.
The array can be replaced by a linked list which is searched (array lookup
only happens very rarely).  Module identification can be done using an alias
based on level rather than 'personality' number.

The current 'raid5' modules support two level (4 and 5) but only one
personality.  This slight awkwardness (which was handled in the mapping from
level to personality) can be better handled by allowing raid5 to register 2
personalities.

With this change in place, the core md module does not need to have an
exhaustive list of all possible personalities, so other personalities can be
added independently.

This patch also moves the check for chunksize being non-zero into the ->run
routines for the personalities that need it, rather than having it in core-md.
 This has a side effect of allowing 'faulty' and 'linear' not to have a
chunk-size set.

NeilBrown [Fri, 6 Jan 2006 08:20:30 +0000]
[PATCH] md: make /proc/mdstat pollable

With this patch it is possible to poll /proc/mdstat to detect arrays appearing
or disappearing, to detect failures, recovery starting, recovery completing,
and devices being added and removed.

It is similar to the poll-ability of /proc/mounts, though different in that:

We always report that the file is readable (because face it, it is, even if
only for EOF).

We report POLLPRI when there is a change so that select() can detect
it as an exceptional event.  Not only are these exceptional events, but
that is the mechanism that the current 'mdadm' uses to watch for events
(It also polls after a timeout).
(We also report POLLERR like /proc/mounts).

Finally, we only reset the per-file event counter when the start of the file
is read, rather than when poll() returns an event.  This is more robust as it
means that an fd will continue to report activity to poll/select until the
program clearly responds to that activity.

md_new_event takes an 'mddev' which isn't currently used, but it will be soon.

[PATCH] md: raid10 read-error handling - resync and read-only

Add in correct read-error handling for resync and read-only situations.

When read-only, we don't over-write, so we need to mark the failed drive in
the r10_bio so we don't re-try it.  During resync, we always read all blocks,
so if there is a read error, we simply over-write it with the good block that
we found (assuming we found one).

Note that the recovery case still isn't handled in an interesting way.  There
is nothing useful to do for the 2-copies case.  If there are 3 or more copies,
then we could try reading from one of the non-missing copies, but this is a
bit complicated and very rarely would be used, so I'm leaving it for now.

There is this "FIXME" comment with a typo in it!!  that been annoying me for
days, so I just had to remove it.

conf->disks[i].rdev should only be accessed if
  - we know we hold a reference or
  - the mddev->reconfig_sem is down or
  - we have a rcu_readlock

handle_stripe was referencing rdev in three places without any of these.  For
the first two, get an rcu_readlock.  For the last, the same access
(md_sync_acct call) is made a little later after the rdev has been claimed
under and rcu_readlock, if R5_Syncio is set.  So just use that access...
However R5_Syncio isn't really needed as the 'syncing' variable contains the
same information.  So use that instead.

Issues, comment, and fix are identical in raid5 and raid6.

[PATCH] md: better handling for read error in raid1 during resync

Handling of read errors during resync is separate from handling of read errors
during normal IO in raid1.  A previous patch added support for read errors
during normal IO.  This one adds support for read errors during resync or
recovery.

The key differences are that we don't need to freeze the array, because the
normal handling of resync means that this part of the array will be idle
except for resync, and the read/overwrite/re-read is needed in a separate
piece of code.

13 years ago[PATCH] make dm-mirror not issue invalid resync requests
Darrick J. Wong [Fri, 6 Jan 2006 08:20:11 +0000]
[PATCH] make dm-mirror not issue invalid resync requests

I've been attempting to set up a (Host)RAID mirror with dm_mirror on
2.6.14.3, and I've been having a strange little problem.  The configuration
in question is a set of 9GB SCSI disks that have 17942584 sectors.  I set
up the dm_mirror table as such:

17942528 mirror core 2 2048 nosync 2 8:48 0 8:64 0

If I'm not mistaken, this sets up a 9GB RAID1 mriror with 1MB stripes
across both SCSI disks.  The sector count of the dm device is less than the
size of the disks, so we shouldn't fall off the end.  However, I always get
the messages like this in dmesg when I set up the dm table:

attempt to access beyond end of device
sdd: rw=0, want=17958656, limit=17942584

Clearly, something is trying to read sectors past the end of the drive.  I
traced it down to the __rh_recovery_prepare function in dm-raid1.c, which
gets called when we're putting the mirror set together.  This function
calls the dirty region log's get_resync_work function to see if there's any
resync that needs to be done, and queues up any areas that are out of sync.
 The log's get_resync_work function is actually a pointer to the
core_get_resync_work function in dm-log.c.

The core_get_resync_work function queries a bitset lc->sync_bits to find
out if there are any regions that are out of date (i.e.  the bit is 0),
which is where the problem occurs.  If every bit in lc->sync_bits is 1
(which is the case when we've just configured a new RAID1 with the nosync
option), the find_next_zero_bit does NOT return the size parameter
(lc->region_count in this case), it returns the size parameter rounded up
to the nearest multiple of 32!  I don't know if this is intentional, but
i386 and x86_64 both exhibit this behavior.

In any case, the statement "if (*region == lc->region_count)" looks like
it's supposed to catch the case where are no regions to resync and
return 0.  Since find_next_zero_bit apparently has a habit of returning
a value that's larger than lc->region_count, the enclosed patch changes
the equality test to a greater-than test so that we don't try to resync
areas outside of the RAID1 region.  Seeing as the HostRAID metadata
lives just past the end of the RAID1 data, mucking around in that area
is not a good idea.

I suppose another way to fix this would be to amend find_next_zero_bit so
that it doesn't return values larger than "size", but I don't know if
there's a reason for the current behavior.

[PATCH] knfsd: reduce stack consumption

A typical nfsd call trace is
 nfsd -> svc_process -> nfsd_dispatch -> nfsd3_proc_write ->
   nfsd_write ->nfsd_vfs_write -> vfs_writev

These add up to over 300 bytes on the stack.
Looking at each of these, I see that nfsd_write (which includes
 nfsd_vfs_write) contributes 0x8c to stack usage itself!!

It turns out this is because it puts a 'struct iattr' on the stack so
it can kill suid if needed.  The following patch saves about 50 bytes
off the stack in this call path.

This patch cleans up most of the offences, which involves moving the call
to vfs_getattr out of the xdr encoding routines (where it is too late to
report an error) into the main NFS procedure handling routines.

There is still a called to vfs_gettattr (related to the ACL code) where the
status is ignored, and called to nfsd_sync_dir don't check return status
either.

[PATCH] Keep nfsd from exiting when seeing recv() errors

I submitted this one previously - svc_tcp_recvfrom currently returns
any errors to the caller, including ECONNRESET and the like.

This is something svc_recv isn't able to deal with:

len = svsk->sk_recvfrom(rqstp);
[...]
if (len == 0 || len == -EAGAIN) {
[...]
return -EAGAIN;
}

[...]
return len;

The nfsd main loop will exit when it sees an error code other than
EAGAIN.

The following patch fixes this problem

svc_recv is not equipped to deal with error codes other than EAGAIN,
and will propagate anything else (such as ECONNRESET) up to nfsd,
causing it to exit.

[PATCH] fuse: check file type in lookup

Previously invalid types were quietly changed to regular files, but at
revalidation the inode was changed to bad.  This was rather inconsistent
behavior.

Now check if the type is valid on initial lookup, and return -EIO if not.

In direct_io mode, send at least one page per reqest.  Previously it was
possible that reqests with zero data were sent, and hence the read/write

Change the way a too large request is handled.  Until now in this case the

Make it more flexibible by not returning -EINVAL from the read, but restarting
it instead.

Also remove the fixed limit on setxattr data and let the filesystem provide as
large a read buffer as it needs to handle the extended attribute data.

The symbolic link length is already checked by VFS to be less than PATH_MAX,
so the extra check against FUSE_SYMLINK_MAX is not needed.

The check in fuse_create_open() against FUSE_NAME_MAX is not needed, since the

[PATCH] s390: qdio V=V pass-through

New feature V=V qdio pass-through.

QDIO and HiperSockets processing in z/VM V=V guest environments (as well as
V=R with z/VM running in LPAR mode) requires shadowing of all QDIO
architecture queue elements.  Especially the shadowing of SBALs and SLSBs
structures in the hypervisor, and the need to issue SIGA SYNC operations to
observe state changes, eventually causes significant CPU processing overhead
in the hypervisor.

The QDIO pass-through support for V=V guests avoids the shadowing of SBALs and
SLSBs.  This significantly reduces the hypervisor overhead for QDIO based I/O.
