Arve Hjønnevåg [Sat, 14 Feb 2009 01:07:24 +0000]
PM: Fix suspend_console and resume_console to use only one semaphore

This fixes a race where a thread acquires the console while the
console is suspended, and the console is resumed before this
thread releases it. In this case, the secondary console
semaphore would be left locked, and the primary semaphore would
be released twice. This in turn would cause the console switch
on suspend or resume to hang forever.

Note that suspend_console does not actually lock the console
for clients that use acquire_console_sem, it only locks it for
clients that use try_acquire_console_sem. If we change
suspend_console to fully lock the console, then the kernel
may deadlock on suspend. One client of try_acquire_console_sem
is acquire_console_semaphore_for_printk, which uses it to
prevent printk from using the console while it is suspended.

Alan Jenkins [Sat, 14 Feb 2009 01:01:14 +0000]
PM/hibernate: fix "swap breaks after hibernation failures"

http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12239

The image writing code dropped a reference to the current swap device.
This doesn't show up if the hibernation succeeds - because it doesn't
affect the image which gets resumed.  But it means multiple _failed_
hibernations end up freeing the swap device while it is still use!

swsusp_write() finds the block device for the swap file using swap_type_of().
It then uses blkdev_get() / blkdev_put() to open and close the block device.

Unfortunately, blkdev_get() assumes ownership of the inode of the block_device
passed to it.  So blkdev_put() calls iput() on the inode.  This is by design
and other callers expect this behaviour.  The fix is for swap_type_of() to take
a reference on the inode using bdget().

[CIFS] Fix multiuser mounts so server does not invalidate earlier security contexts

When two different users mount the same Windows 2003 Server share using CIFS,
the first session mounted can be invalidated.  Some servers invalidate the first
smb session when a second similar user (e.g. two users who get mapped by server to "guest")
authenticates an smb session from the same client.

By making sure that we set the 2nd and subsequent vc numbers to nonzero values,
this ensures that we will not have this problem.

Fixes Samba bug 6004, problem description follows:
How to reproduce:

- configure an "open share" (full permissions to Guest user) on Windows 2003
Server (I couldn't reproduce the problem with Samba server or Windows older
than 2003)
- mount the share twice with different users who will be authenticated as guest.

 noacl,noperm,user=john,dir_mode=0700,domain=DOMAIN,rw
 noacl,noperm,user=jeff,dir_mode=0700,domain=DOMAIN,rw

Result:

- just the mount point mounted last is accessible:

11 years ago[CIFS] improve posix semantics of file create
Steve French [Fri, 20 Feb 2009 04:32:45 +0000]
[CIFS] improve posix semantics of file create

Samba server added support for a new posix open/create/mkdir operation
a year or so ago, and we added support to cifs for mkdir to use it,
but had not added the corresponding code to file create.

The following patch helps improve the performance of the cifs create
path (to Samba and servers which support the cifs posix protocol
extensions).  Using Connectathon basic test1, with 2000 files, the
performance improved about 15%, and also helped reduce network traffic
(17% fewer SMBs sent over the wire) due to saving a network round trip
for the SetPathInfo on every file create.

It should also help the semantics (and probably the performance) of
write (e.g. when posix byte range locks are on the file) on file
handles opened with posix create, and adds support for a few flags
which would have to be ignored otherwise.

8250: fix boot hang with serial console when using with Serial Over Lan port

Intel 8257x Ethernet boards have a feature called Serial Over Lan.

This feature works by emulating a serial port, and it is detected by
kernel as a normal 8250 port.  However, this emulation is not perfect, as
also noticed on changeset 7500b1f602aad75901774a67a687ee985d85893f.

Before this patch, the kernel were trying to check if the serial TX is
capable of work using IRQ's.

This were done with a code similar this:

        serial_outp(up, UART_IER, UART_IER_THRI);
        lsr = serial_in(up, UART_LSR);
        iir = serial_in(up, UART_IIR);
        serial_outp(up, UART_IER, 0);

        if (lsr & UART_LSR_TEMT && iir & UART_IIR_NO_INT)
up->bugs |= UART_BUG_TXEN;

This works fine for other 8250 ports, but, on 8250-emulated SoL port, the
chip is a little lazy to down UART_IIR_NO_INT at UART_IIR register.

Due to that, UART_BUG_TXEN is sometimes enabled.  However, as TX IRQ keeps
working, and the TX polling is now enabled, the driver miss-interprets the
IRQ received later, hanging up the machine until a key is pressed at the
serial console.

This is the 6 version of this patch.  Previous versions were trying to
introduce a large enough delay between serial_outp and serial_in(up,
UART_IIR), but not taking forever.  However, the needed delay couldn't be
safely determined.

At the experimental tests, a delay of 1us solves most of the cases, but
still hangs sometimes.  Increasing the delay to 5us was better, but still
doesn't solve.  A very high delay of 50 ms seemed to work every time.

However, poking around with delays and pray for it to be enough doesn't
seem to be a good approach, even for a quirk.

So, instead of playing with random large arbitrary delays, let's just
disable UART_BUG_TXEN for all SoL ports.

Johannes Weiner [Fri, 20 Feb 2009 23:38:41 +0000]
slab: introduce kzfree()

kzfree() is a wrapper for kfree() that additionally zeroes the underlying
memory before releasing it to the slab allocator.

Currently there is code which memset()s the memory region of an object
before releasing it back to the slab allocator to make sure
security-sensitive data are really zeroed out after use.

These callsites can then just use kzfree() which saves some code, makes
users greppable and allows for a stupid destructor that isn't necessarily
aware of the actual object size.

11 years agox86: use the right protections for split-up pagetables
Ingo Molnar [Fri, 20 Feb 2009 07:04:13 +0000]
x86: use the right protections for split-up pagetables

Steven Rostedt found a bug in where in his modified kernel
ftrace was unable to modify the kernel text, due to the PMD
itself having been marked read-only as well in
split_large_page().

The fix, suggested by Linus, is to not try to 'clone' the
reference protection of a huge-page, but to use the standard
(and permissive) page protection bits of KERNPG_TABLE.

The 'cloning' makes sense for the ptes but it's a confused and
incorrect concept at the page table level - because the
pagetable entry is a set of all ptes and hence cannot
'clone' any single protection attribute - the ptes can be any
mixture of protections.

With the permissive KERNPG_TABLE, even if the pte protections
get changed after this point (due to ftrace doing code-patching
or other similar activities like kprobes), the resulting combined
protections will still be correct and the pte's restrictive
(or permissive) protections will control it.

Also update the comment.

This bug was there for a long time but has not caused visible
problems before as it needs a rather large read-only area to
trigger. Steve possibly hacked his kernel with some really
large arrays or so. Anyway, the bug is definitely worth fixing.

[ Huang Ying also experienced problems in this area when writing
  the EFI code, but the real bug in split_large_page() was not
  realized back then. ]

to set the appropriate alignment to match the fence covering the object.

Eric Anholt mentioned that the pinning code is meant to choose the
maximum of the request alignment and that of the fence covering the
object... However currently, the pinning code will only apply the fence
constraints if the supplied alignment is 0.

11 years agodrm/i915: Fix potential AB-BA deadlock in i915_gem_execbuffer()
Roland Dreier [Sat, 7 Feb 2009 01:48:09 +0000]
drm/i915: Fix potential AB-BA deadlock in i915_gem_execbuffer()

Lockdep warns that i915_gem_execbuffer() can trigger a page fault (which
takes mmap_sem) while holding dev->struct_mutex, while drm_vm_open()
(which is called with mmap_sem already held) takes dev->struct_mutex.
So this is a potential AB-BA deadlock.

The way that i915_gem_execbuffer() triggers a page fault is by doing
copy_to_user() when returning new buffer offsets back to userspace;
however there is no reason to hold the struct_mutex when doing this
copy, since what is being copied is the contents of an array private to
i915_gem_execbuffer() anyway.  So we can fix the potential deadlock (and
get rid of the lockdep warning) by simply moving the copy_to_user()
outside of where struct_mutex is held.

This fixes <http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12491>.

11 years ago[IA64] Revert "prevent ia64 from invoking irq handlers on offline CPUs"
Alex Chiang [Mon, 9 Feb 2009 18:16:16 +0000]
[IA64] Revert "prevent ia64 from invoking irq handlers on offline CPUs"

This reverts commit e7b140365b86aaf94374214c6f4e6decbee2eb0a.

Commit e7b14036 removes the targetted disabled CPU from the
cpu_online_map after calls to migrate_platform_irqs and fixup_irqs.

Paul McKenney states that the reasoning behind the patch was to
prevent irq handlers from running on CPUs marked offline because:

RCU happily ignores CPUs that don't have their bits set in
cpu_online_map, so if there are RCU read-side critical sections
in the irq handlers being run, RCU will ignore them.  If the
other CPUs were running, they might sequence through the RCU
state machine, which could result in data structures being
yanked out from under those irq handlers, which in turn could
result in oopses or worse.

Unfortunately, both ia64 functions above look at cpu_online_map to find
a new CPU to migrate interrupts onto. This means we can potentially
migrate an interrupt off ourself back to... ourself. Uh oh.

This causes an oops when we finally try to process pending interrupts on
the CPU we want to disable. The oops results from calling __do_IRQ with
a NULL pt_regs:

Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference (address 0000000000000040)

I don't like this revert because it is fragile. ia64 is getting lucky
because we seem to only ever process timer interrupts in this path, but
if we ever race with an IPI here, we definitely use RCU and have the
potential of hitting an oops that Paul describes above.

Patching ia64's timer_interrupt() to check for NULL pt_regs is
insufficient though, as we still hit the above oops.

As a short term solution, I do think that this revert is the right
answer. The revert hold up under repeated testing (24+ hour test runs)
with this setup:

- 8-way rx6600
- randomly toggling CPU online/offline state every 2 seconds
- running CPU exercisers, memory hog, disk exercisers, and
  network stressors
- average system load around ~160

In the long term, we really need to figure out why we set pt_regs = NULL
in ia64_process_pending_intr(). If it turns out that it is unnecessary
to do so, then we could safely re-introduce e7b14036 (along with some
other logic to be smarter about migrating interrupts).

One final note: x86 also removes the disabled CPU from cpu_online_map
and then re-enables interrupts for 1ms, presumably to handle any pending
interrupts:

arch/x86/kernel/irq_32.c (and irq_64.c):
cpu_disable_common:
[remove cpu from cpu_online_map]

fixup_irqs():
for_each_irq:
[break CPU affinities]

local_irq_enable();
mdelay(1);
local_irq_disable();

So they are doing implicitly what ia64 is doing explicitly.

BTE_MAX_XFER is wrong.  It is one greater than the number of cache
lines the BTE is actually able to transfer.  If you request a transfer
of exactly BTE_MAX_XFER size, you trip a very cryptic BUG_ON() which
should certainly be made more clear.

[S390] Fix timeval regression on s390

commit aa5e97ce4bbc9d5daeec16b1d15bb3f6b7b4f4d4
[PATCH] improve precision of process accounting.

Introduced a timing regression:
-bash-3.2# time ls
real    0m0.006s
user    0m1.754s
sys     0m1.094s

The problem was introduced by an error in cputime_to_timeval.
Cputime is now 1/4096 microsecond, therefore, we have to divide
the remainder with 4096 to get the microseconds.

11 years agosound: virtuoso: revert "do not overwrite EEPROM on Xonar D2/D2X"
Clemens Ladisch [Tue, 17 Feb 2009 08:50:30 +0000]
sound: virtuoso: revert "do not overwrite EEPROM on Xonar D2/D2X"

This reverts commit 7e86c0e6850504ec9516b953f316a47277825e33 ("do not
overwrite EEPROM on Xonar D2/D2X") because it did not actually help with
the problem.

More user reports show that the overwriting of the EEPROM is not
triggered by using this driver but by installing Linux, and that the
installation of any other operating system (even one without any CMI8788
driver) has the same effect.  In other words, the presence of this
driver does not have any effect on the occurrence of the error.  (So
far, the available evidence seems to point to a BIOS bug.)

Furthermore, it turns out that the EEPROM chip is protected against
stray write commands by the command format and by requiring a separate
write-enable command, so the error scenario in the previous commit (that
SPI writes can be misinterpreted as an EEPROM write command) is not even
theoretically possible.

The mixer control that was removed as a consequence of the previous
commit can only be partially emulated in userspace, which also means it
cannot be seen be the in-kernel OSS API emulation, so it is better to
revert that change.

11 years agotracing: limit the number of loops the ring buffer self test can make

tracing: limit the number of loops the ring buffer self test can make

Impact: prevent deadlock if ring buffer gets corrupted

This patch adds a paranoid check to make sure the ring buffer consumer
does not go into an infinite loop. Since the ring buffer has been set
to read only, the consumer should not loop for more than the ring buffer
size. A check is added to make sure the consumer does not loop more than
the ring buffer size.

The function tracer is pretty useless if KALLSYMS is not configured.
Unless you are good at reading hex values, the function tracer should
select the KALLSYMS configuration.

11 years agotracing: disable tracing while testing ring buffer
Steven Rostedt [Wed, 18 Feb 2009 23:33:57 +0000]
tracing: disable tracing while testing ring buffer

Impact: fix to prevent hard lockup on self tests

If one of the tracers are broken and is constantly filling the ring
buffer while the test of the ring buffer is running, it will hang
the box. The reason is that the test is a consumer that will not
stop till the ring buffer is empty. But if the tracer is broken and
is constantly producing input to the buffer, this test will never
end. The result is a lockup of the box.

This happened when KALLSYMS was not defined and the dynamic ftrace
test constantly filled the ring buffer, because the filter failed
and all functions were being traced. Something was being called
that constantly filled the buffer.
