10 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.

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.

10 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

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

USB: fix interrupt disabling for HCDs with shared interrupt handlers

USB: fix interrupt disabling for HCDs with shared interrupt handlers

As has been discussed several times on LKML, IRQF_SHARED | IRQF_DISABLED
doesn't work reliably, i.e. a shared interrupt handler CAN'T be certain to
be called with interrupts disabled. Most USB HCD handlers use IRQF_DISABLED
and therefore havoc can break out if they share their interrupt with a
handler that doesn't use it.

On my test machine the yenta_socket interrupt handler (no IRQF_DISABLED)
was registered before ehci_hcd and one uhci_hcd instance. Therefore all
usb_hcd_irq() invocations for ehci_hcd and for one uhci_hcd instance
happened with interrupts enabled. That led to random lockups as USB core
HCD functions that acquire the same spinlock could be called twice
from interrupt handlers.

This patch updates usb_hcd_irq() to always disable/restore interrupts.
usb_add_hcd() will silently remove any IRQF_DISABLED requested from HCD code.

10 years agoUSB: ohci - record data toggle after unlink
David Brownell [Sat, 14 Jun 2008 06:59:54 +0000]
USB: ohci - record data toggle after unlink

This patch fixes a problem with OHCI where canceling bulk or
interrupt URBs may lose track of the right data toggle.  This
seems to be a longstanding bug, possibly dating back to the
Linux 2.4 kernel, which stayed hidden because

 (a) about half the time the data toggle bit was correct;
 (b) canceling such URBs is unusual; and
 (c) the few drivers which cancel these URBs either
      [1] do it only as part of shutting down, or
      [2] have fault recovery logic, which recovers.

For those transfer types, the toggle is normally written back
into the ED when each TD is retired.  But canceling bypasses
the mechanism used to retire TDs ... so on average, half the
time the toggle bit will be invalid after cancelation.

The fix is simple:  the toggle state of any canceled TDs are
propagated back to the ED in the finish_unlinks function.

David Brownell [Sat, 14 Jun 2008 06:56:48 +0000]
USB: ehci - fix timer regression

This patch fixes a regression in the EHCI driver's TIMER_IO_WATCHDOG
behavior.  The patch "USB: EHCI: add separate IAA watchdog timer" changed
how that timer is handled, so that short timeouts on the remaining
timer (unfortunately, overloaded) would never be used.

This takes a more direct approach, reorganizing the code slightly to
be explicit about only the I/O watchdog role now being overridable.
It also replaces a now-obsolete comment describing older timer behavior.

hrtimer: prevent migration for raising softirq

Due to a possible deadlock, the waking of the softirq was pushed outside
of the hrtimer base locks. See commit 0c96c5979a522c3323c30a078a70120e29b5bdbc

Unfortunately this allows the task to migrate after setting up the softirq
and raising it. Since softirqs run a queue that is per-cpu we may raise the
softirq on the wrong CPU and this will keep the queued softirq task from

To solve this issue, this patch disables preemption around the releasing
of the hrtimer lock and raising of the softirq.

Mel Gorman [Thu, 3 Jul 2008 04:27:51 +0000]
Do not overwrite nr_zones on !NUMA when initialising zlcache_ptr

The non-NUMA case of build_zonelist_cache() would initialize the
zlcache_ptr for both node_zonelists[] to NULL.

Which is problematic, since non-NUMA only has a single node_zonelists[]
entry, and trying to zero the non-existent second one just overwrote the
nr_zones field instead.

As kswapd uses this value to determine what reclaim work is necessary,
the result is that kswapd never reclaims.  This causes processes to
stall frequently in low-memory situations as they always direct reclaim.
This patch initialises zlcache_ptr correctly.

The 192 byte cache is not necessary if we have a basic alignment of 128
byte. If it would be used then the 192 would be aligned to the next 128 byte

The legacy protocol's open operation doesn't handle an append operation
(it is expected that the client take care of it).  We were incorrectly
passing the extended protocol's flag through even in legacy mode.  This
was reported in bugzilla report #10689.  This patch fixes the problem
by disallowing extended protocol open modes from being passed in legacy

Alex Chiang [Wed, 2 Jul 2008 02:02:23 +0000]
PCI: acpiphp: cleanup notify handler on all root bridges

During the development of the physical PCI slot patch series, Gary Hade
kept on reporting strange oopses due to interactions between pci_slot
and acpiphp.


find_root_bridges() unconditionally installs
handle_hotplug_event_bridge() as an ACPI_SYSTEM_NOTIFY handler for all
root bridges.

However, during module cleanup, remove_bridge() will only remove the
notify handler iff the root bridge had a hot-pluggable slot directly
underneath. That is:

root bridge -> hotplug slot

But, if the topology looks like either of the following:

root bridge -> non-hotplug slot
root bridge -> p2p bridge -> hotplug slot

Then we currently do not remove the notify handler from that root

This can cause a kernel oops if we modprobe acpiphp later and it gets
loaded somewhere else in memory. If the root bridge then receives a
hotplug event, it will then attempt to call a stale, non-existent notify
handler and we blow up.

Much thanks goes to Gary Hade for his persistent debugging efforts.

PCI: Limit VPD read/write lengths for Broadcom 5706, 5708, 5709 rev.

For Broadcom 5706, 5708, 5709 rev. A nics, any read beyond the
VPD end tag will hang the device.  This problem was initially
observed when a vpd entry was created in sysfs
('/sys/bus/pci/devices/<id>/vpd').   A read to this sysfs entry
will dump 32k of data.  Reading a full 32k will cause an access
beyond the VPD end tag causing the device to hang.  Once the device
is hung, the bnx2 driver will not be able to reset the device.
We believe that it is legal to read beyond the end tag and
therefore the solution is to limit the read/write length.

A majority of this patch is from Matthew Wilcox who gave code for
reworking the PCI vpd size information.  A PCI quirk added for the
Broadcom NIC's to limit the read/write's.

rcu: fix hotplug vs rcu race

Dhaval Giani reported this warning during cpu hotplug stress-tests:

| On running kernel compiles in parallel with cpu hotplug:
| WARNING: at arch/x86/kernel/smp.c:118
| native_smp_send_reschedule+0x21/0x36()

|  [<c016fd99>] filp_close+0x4d/0x57
|  [<c016fdff>] sys_close+0x5c/0x97

IMHO the warning is a spurious one.

cpu_online_map is updated by the _cpu_down() using stop_machine_run().
Since force_quiescent_state is invoked from irqs disabled section,
stop_machine_run() won't be executing while a cpu is executing
force_quiescent_state(). Hence the cpu_online_map is stable while we're
in the irq disabled section.

However, a cpu might have been offlined _just_ before we disabled irqs
while entering force_quiescent_state(). And rcu subsystem might not yet
have handled the CPU_DEAD notification, leading to the offlined cpu's
bit being set in the rcp->cpumask.

Hence cpumask = (rcp->cpumask & cpu_online_map) to prevent sending
smp_reschedule() to an offlined CPU.

Here's the timeline:

cpu_down(): .
.     .
. .
stop_machine(): /* disables preemption, .
 * and irqs */ .
. .
. .
take_cpu_down(); .
. .
. .
. .
cpu_disable(); /*this removes cpu  .
*from cpu_online_map  .
*/ .
. .
. .
restart_machine(); /* enables irqs */ .
------WINDOW DURING WHICH rcp->cpumask is stale ---------------
. call_rcu();
. /* disables irqs here */
. .force_quiescent_state();
.CPU_DEAD: .for_each_cpu(rcp->cpumask)
. .   smp_send_reschedule();
. .
. .   WARN_ON() for offlined CPU!
-------- WINDOW ENDS ------------------------------------------
rcu_offline_cpu() /* Which calls cpu_quiet()
   * which removes
   * cpu from rcp->cpumask.

If a new batch was started just before calling stop_machine_run(), the
"tobe-offlined" cpu is still present in rcp-cpumask.

During a cpu-offline, from take_cpu_down(), we queue an rt-prio idle
task as the next task to be picked by the scheduler. We also call
cpu_disable() which will disable any further interrupts and remove the
cpu's bit from the cpu_online_map.

Once the stop_machine_run() successfully calls take_cpu_down(), it calls
schedule(). That's the last time a schedule is called on the offlined
cpu, and hence the last time when rdp->passed_quiesc will be set to 1
through rcu_qsctr_inc().

But the cpu_quiet() will be on this cpu will be called only when the
next RCU_SOFTIRQ occurs on this CPU. So at this time, the offlined CPU
is still set in rcp->cpumask.

Now coming back to the idle_task which truely offlines the CPU, it does
check for a pending RCU and raises the softirq, since it will find
rdp->passed_quiesc to be 0 in this case. However, since the cpu is
offline I am not sure if the softirq will trigger on the CPU.

Even if it doesn't the rcu_offline_cpu() will find that rcp->completed
is not the same as rcp->cur, which means that our cpu could be holding
up the grace period progression. Hence we call cpu_quiet() and move

But because of the window explained in the timeline, we could still have
a call_rcu() before the RCU subsystem executes it's CPU_DEAD
notification, and we send smp_send_reschedule() to offlined cpu while
trying to force the quiescent states. The appended patch adds comments
and prevents checking for offlined cpu everytime.

cpu_online_map is updated by the _cpu_down() using stop_machine_run().
Since force_quiescent_state is invoked from irqs disabled section,
stop_machine_run() won't be executing while a cpu is executing
force_quiescent_state(). Hence the cpu_online_map is stable while we're
in the irq disabled section.

10 years agoblock: Fix the starving writes bug in the anticipatory IO scheduler
Divyesh Shah [Mon, 16 Jun 2008 16:37:08 +0000]
block: Fix the starving writes bug in the anticipatory IO scheduler

AS scheduler alternates between issuing read and write batches. It does
the batch switch only after all requests from the previous batch are

When switching to a write batch, if there is an on-going read request,
it waits for its completion and indicates its intention of switching by
setting ad->changed_batch and the new direction but does not update the
batch_expire_time for the new write batch which it does in the case of
no previous pending requests.
On completion of the read request, it sees that we were waiting for the
switch and schedules work for kblockd right away and resets the
ad->changed_data flag.
Now when kblockd enters dispatch_request where it is expected to pick
up a write request, it in turn ends the write batch because the
batch_expire_timer was not updated and shows the expire timestamp for
the previous batch.

This results in the write starvation for all the cases where there is
the intention for switching to a write batch, but there is a previous
in-flight read request and the batch gets reverted to a read_batch
right away.

This also holds true in the reverse case (switching from a write batch
to a read batch with an in-flight write request).

I've checked that this bug exists on 2.6.11, 2.6.18, 2.6.24 and
linux-2.6-block git HEAD. I've tested the fix on x86 platforms with
SCSI drives where the driver asks for the next request while a current
request is in-flight.

This patch is based off linux-2.6-block git HEAD.

Bug reproduction:
A simple scenario which reproduces this bug is:
- dd if=/dev/hda3 of=/dev/null &
- lilo
   The lilo takes forever to complete.

This can also be reproduced fairly easily with the earlier dd and
another test
program doing msync().

The example test program below should print out a message after every
but it simply hangs forever. With this bugfix it makes forward progress.

Example test program using msync() (thanks to suleiman AT google DOT

inline uint64_t
         int64_t tsc;

         __asm __volatile("rdtsc" : "=A" (tsc));

                 return (1);

         if ((fd = open(argv[1], O_RDWR | O_NOATIME)) < 0)
                 err(1, "open");

         if (fstat(fd, &st) < 0)

         p = mmap(NULL, st.st_size, PROT_READ | PROT_WRITE,

On a system where there are no hot pluggable cpus "additional_cpus"
is still set to -1 at the point where we call per_cpu_scan_finalize().
If we didn't find an SRAT table and so pick the default "32" for the
number of cpus, when we get to:
high_cpu = min(high_cpu + reserve_cpus, NR_CPUS);
we will end up initializing for just 31 cpus ... and so we will
die horribly when bringing up cpu#32.

Jozsef Kadlecsik [Mon, 30 Jun 2008 19:41:30 +0000]
netfilter: nf_conntrack_tcp: fixing to check the lower bound of valid ACK

Lost connections was reported by Thomas B√§tzler (running 2.6.25 kernel) on
the netfilter mailing list (see the thread "Weird nat/conntrack Problem
with PASV FTP upload"). He provided tcpdump recordings which helped to
find a long lingering bug in conntrack.

In TCP connection tracking, checking the lower bound of valid ACK could
lead to mark valid packets as INVALID because:

 - We have got a "higher or equal" inequality, but the test checked
   the "higher" condition only; fixed.
 - If the packet contains a SACK option, it could occur that the ACK
   value was before the left edge of our (S)ACK "window": if a previous
   packet from the other party intersected the right edge of the window
   of the receiver, we could move forward the window parameters beyond
   accepting a valid ack. Therefore in this patch we check the rightmost
   SACK edge instead of the ACK value in the lower bound of valid (S)ACK
