libata-acpi: don't call sleeping function from invalid context

The problem is introduced by commit
664d080c41463570b95717b5ad86e79dc1be0877.

acpi_evaluate_integer is a sleeping function,
and it should not be called with spin_lock_irqsave.

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.

11 years agoCorrect hash flushing from huge_ptep_set_wrprotect()
David Gibson [Tue, 8 Jul 2008 05:58:16 +0000]
Correct hash flushing from huge_ptep_set_wrprotect()

As Andy Whitcroft recently pointed out, the current powerpc version of
huge_ptep_set_wrprotect() has a bug.  It just calls ptep_set_wrprotect()
which in turn calls pte_update() then hpte_need_flush() with the 'huge'
argument set to 0.  This will cause hpte_need_flush() to flush the wrong
hash entries (of any).  Andy's fix for this is already in the powerpc
tree as commit 016b33c4958681c24056abed8ec95844a0da80a3.

I have confirmed this is a real bug, not masked by some other
synchronization, with a new testcase for libhugetlbfs.  A process write
a (MAP_PRIVATE) hugepage mapping, fork(), then alter the mapping and
have the child incorrectly see the second write.

Therefore, this should be fixed for 2.6.26, and for the stable tree.
Here is a suitable patch for 2.6.26, which I think will also be suitable
for the stable tree (neither of the headers in question has been changed
much recently).

It is cut down slighlty from Andy's original version, in that it does
not include a 32-bit version of huge_ptep_set_wrprotect().  Currently,
hugepages are not supported on any 32-bit powerpc platform.  When they
are, a suitable 32-bit version can be added - the only 32-bit hardware
which supports hugepages does not use the conventional hashtable MMU and
so will have different needs anyway.

Linus Torvalds [Sun, 6 Jul 2008 23:43:12 +0000]
vsprintf: add support for '%pS' and '%pF' pointer formats

They print out a pointer in symbolic format, if possible (ie using

pointers (which can point to data or code and that you find on the stack
during backtraces etc), while '%pF' is for C function pointer types.

On most architectures, the two mean exactly the same thing, but some
architectures use an indirect pointer for C function pointers, where the
function pointer points to a function descriptor (which in turn contains
the actual pointer to the code).  The '%pF' code automatically does the
appropriate function descriptor dereference on such architectures.

This expands the kernel '%p' handling with an arbitrary alphanumberic
specifier extension string immediately following the '%p'.  Right now
it's just being ignored, but the next commit will start adding some
specific pointer type extensions.

NOTE! The reason the extension is appended to the '%p' is to allow
minimal gcc type checking: gcc will still see the '%p' and will check
that the argument passed in is indeed a pointer, and yet will not
complain about the extended information that gcc doesn't understand
about (on the other hand, it also won't actually check that the pointer
type and the extension are compatible).

Alphanumeric characters were chosen because there is no sane existing
use for a string format with a hex pointer representation immediately
followed by alphanumerics (which is what such a format string would have
traditionally resulted in).

11 years agoKVM: IOAPIC: Fix level-triggered irq injection hang
Mark McLoughlin [Fri, 4 Jul 2008 17:23:15 +0000]
KVM: IOAPIC: Fix level-triggered irq injection hang

The "remote_irr" variable is used to indicate an interrupt
which has been received by the LAPIC, but not acked.

In our EOI handler, we unset remote_irr and re-inject the
interrupt if the interrupt line is still asserted.

However, we do not set remote_irr here, leading to a
situation where if kvm_ioapic_set_irq() is called, then we go
ahead and call ioapic_service(). This means that IRR is
re-asserted even though the interrupt is currently in service
(i.e. LAPIC IRR is cleared and ISR/TMR set)

The issue with this is that when the currently executing
interrupt handler finishes and writes LAPIC EOI, then TMR is
unset and EOI sent to the IOAPIC. Since IRR is now asserted,
but TMR is not, then when the second interrupt is handled,
no EOI is sent and if there is any pending interrupt, it is
not re-injected.

This fixes a hang only seen while running mke2fs -j on an
8Gb virtio disk backed by a fully sparse raw file, with
aliguori "avoid fragmented virtio-blk transfers by copying"
changes.

olpc: sdhci: add quirk for the Marvell CaFe's interrupt timeout

The CaFe chip has a hardware bug that ends up with us getting a timeout
value that's too small, causing the following sorts of problems:

[   60.525138] mmcblk0: error -110 transferring data

[   60.533371] lost page write due to I/O error on mmcblk0p2

Presumably this is an off-by-one error in the hardware.  Incrementing
the timeout count value that we stuff into the TIMEOUT_CONTROL register
gets us a value that works.  This bug was originally discovered by

cciss: read config to obtain max outstanding commands per controller

This patch changes the way we determine the maximum number of outstanding
commands for each controller.

Most Smart Array controllers can support up to 1024 commands, the notable
exceptions are the E200 and E200i.

The next generation of controllers which were just added support a mode of
operation called Zero Memory Raid (ZMR).  In this mode they only support
64 outstanding commands.  In Full Function Raid (FFR) mode they support
1024.

We have been setting the queue depth by arbitrarily assigning some value
for each controller.  We needed a better way to set the queue depth to
avoid lots of annoying "fifo full" messages.  So we made the driver a
little smarter.  We now read the config table and subtract 4 from the
returned value.  The -4 is to allow some room for ioctl calls which are
not tracked the same way as io commands are tracked.

Please consider this for inclusion.

11 years agoAlpha Linux kernel fails with inconsistent kallsyms data
Bastian Blank [Fri, 4 Jul 2008 17:00:00 +0000]
Alpha Linux kernel fails with inconsistent kallsyms data

The build of the Alpha Linux kernel currently fails[1] with inconsistent
kallsyms data.  As I never saw that before, I thought about hardware
problems.  But in fact it is a bug in the Linux kernel.

The end of the rodata section is marked with the "__end_rodata" symbol.
This symbol have different aligning constraints than the inittext parts
and therefor the start marked "_sinittext".  Because of that the
__end_rodata symbol shifts between < _sinittext and == _sinittext.  The
later variant is seen as a code symbol and recorded in the kallsyms data.

On fix would be to move the exception table a little bit and get some
space between that two areas.

security: filesystem capabilities: fix CAP_SETPCAP handling

The filesystem capability support meaning for CAP_SETPCAP is less powerful
than the non-filesystem capability support.  As such, when filesystem
capabilities are configured, we should not permit CAP_SETPCAP to 'enhance'
the current process through strace manipulation of a child process.

spi: fix the read path in spidev

This got broken by the recent "fix rmmod $spi_driver while spidev-user is
active".  I tested the rmmod & write path but didn't check the read path.
I am sorry.  The read logic changed and spidev_sync_read() +
spidev_sync_write() do not return zero on success anymore but the number
of bytes that has been transfered over the bus.  This patch changes the
logic and copy_to_user() gets called again.

The write path returns the number of bytes which are written to the
underlying device what may be less than the requested size.  This patch
makes the same change to the read path or else we request a read of 20
bytes, get 10, don't call copy to user and report to the user that we read
10 bytes.

Foundation.  It's still a little unclear how long the LF money will last
for the fellowship, but for the foreseeable future, I'll be working on:

* Properly documenting every new Linux kernel-userland (and glibc) API,
  and every API change, that is released into the mainline kernel, ideally
  before actual release.  (That's the ideal, but there's a quite a
  backlog, so I'm not going to achieve the ideal immediately.)

* Testing new APIs, again ideally before they are released into the
  mainline kernel, and probably doing some light bug fixing while I'm at
  it (e.g., the recent utimensat() work).

* Design review of new APIs, which of course can only usefully be done
  before they are released into the mainline kernel.

* And of course accepting patches and dealing with bug reports for
  existing man pages.

Commit 95b570c9cef3b12356454c7112571b7e406b4b51 ("Taint kernel after
WARN_ON(condition)") introduced a TAINT_WARN that was implemented for
all architectures using the generic warn_on_slowpath(), which excluded
any architecture that set HAVE_ARCH_WARN_ON.

As all of the architectures that implement their own WARN_ON() all go
through the report_bug() path (specifically handling BUG_TRAP_TYPE_WARN),
taint the kernel there as well for consistency.

When writing /proc/acpi/alarm in adjust mode, e.g.
echo "+0000-00-00 00:00:15" >/proc/acpi/alarm
The "century" field should be read and added to "year" field before
writing, otherwise the CMOS time will go back to 2000 years ago, e.g.
# cat /proc/acpi/alarm

11 years agortc-x1205: Fix alarm set
Michael Hamel [Fri, 4 Jul 2008 16:59:30 +0000]
rtc-x1205: Fix alarm set

I have discovered that the current version of rtc-x1205.c does not work
correctly when asked to set the alarm time by the RTC_WKALM_SET ioctl()
call.  This happens because the alarm registers do not behave like the
current-time registers.  They are non-volatile.  Two things go wrong:

- the X1205 requires a 10 msec delay after any attempt to write to the
  non-volatile registers.  The x1205_set_datetime() routine does the write
  as 8 single-byte writes without any delay.  Only the first write
  succeeds.  The second is NAKed because the chip is busy.

- the X1205 resets the RWEL bit after any write to the non-volatile
  registers.  This would lock out any further writes after the first even
  with a 10msec delay.

I fix this by doing a single 8-byte write and then waiting 10msec for the
chip to be ready.  A side effect of this change is that it will speed up
x1205_rtc_set_time() which uses the same code.

I have also implemented the 'enable' bit in the rtc_wkalm structure, which
the existing driver does not attempt to do.  I have modified both
x1205_rtc_set_alarm() to set the AL0E bit, and x1205_rtc_read_alarm() to
return it.

I have tested this patch on a LinkSys NSLU2 under OpenWRT, but on no other
hardware.  On the NSLU2 the X1205 correctly asserts its IRQ pin when the
alarm time matches the current time.

As reported by Vipul Gandhi, the current serial_match_port() doesn't work
for tty-devices using dynamic major number allocation.  Fix it.

It oopses if you suspend a serial port with _dynamic_ major number.  ATM,
I think, there's only the drivers/serial/jsm/jsm_driver.c driver, that

11 years agortc: rtc_read_alarm() handles wraparound
David Brownell [Fri, 4 Jul 2008 16:59:26 +0000]
rtc: rtc_read_alarm() handles wraparound

While 0e36a9a4a788e4e92407774df76c545910810d35 ("rtc: fix readback from
/sys/class/rtc/rtc?/wakealarm") made sure that active alarms were never
returned with invalid "wildcard" fields (negative), it can still report
(wrongly) that the alarm triggers in the past.

Example, if it's now 10am, an alarm firing at 5am will be triggered
TOMORROW not today.  (Which may also be next month or next year...)

This updates that alarm handling in three ways:

  * Handle alarm rollover in the common cases of RTCs that don't
    support matching on all date fields.

  * Skip the invalid-field logic when it's not needed.

  * Minor bugfix ... tm_isdst should be ignored, it's one of the
    fields Linux doesn't maintain.

A warning is emitted for some of the unhandled rollover cases, but the
possible combinations are a bit too numerous to handle every bit of
potential hardware and firmware braindamage.

11 years agomm: dirty page accounting vs VM_MIXEDMAP
Peter Zijlstra [Fri, 4 Jul 2008 16:59:24 +0000]
mm: dirty page accounting vs VM_MIXEDMAP

Dirty page accounting accurately measures the amound of dirty pages in
writable shared mappings by mapping the pages RO (as indicated by
vma_wants_writenotify).  We then trap on first write and call
set_page_dirty() on the page, after which we map the page RW and
continue execution.

When we launder dirty pages, we call clear_page_dirty_for_io() which
clears both the dirty flag, and maps the page RO again before we start
writeout so that the story can repeat itself.

vma_wants_writenotify() excludes VM_PFNMAP on the basis that we cannot
do the regular dirty page stuff on raw PFNs and the memory isn't going
anywhere anyway.

The recently introduced VM_MIXEDMAP mixes both !pfn_valid() and
pfn_valid() pages in a single mapping.

We can't do dirty page accounting on !pfn_valid() pages as stated
above, and mapping them RO causes them to be COW'ed on write, which
breaks VM_SHARED semantics.

Excluding VM_MIXEDMAP in vma_wants_writenotify() would mean we don't do
the regular dirty page accounting for the pfn_valid() pages, which
would bring back all the head-aches from inaccurate dirty page
accounting.

So instead, we let the !pfn_valid() pages get mapped RO, but fix them
up unconditionally in the fault path.
