Dan Williams [Sun, 5 Feb 2006 22:55:16 +0000]
[PATCH] wireless/atmel: fix Open System authentication process bugs

This patch fixes a number of bugs in the authentication process:

1) When falling back to Shared Key authentication mode from Open System,
a missing 'return' would cause the auth request to be sent, but would
drop the card into Management Error state.  When falling back, the
driver should also indicate that it is switching to Shared Key mode by
setting exclude_unencrypted.

2) Initial authentication modes were apparently wrong in some cases,
causing the driver to attempt Shared Key authentication mode when in
fact the access point didn't support that mode or even had WEP disabled.
The driver should set the correct initial authentication mode based on
wep_is_on and exclude_unencrypted.

3) Authentication response packets from the access point in Open System
mode were getting ignored because the driver was expecting the sequence
number of a Shared Key mode response.  The patch separates the OS and SK
mode handling to provide the correct behavior.

[PATCH] Fix over-zealous tag clearing in radix_tree_delete

If a tag is set for a node being deleted from a radix_tree, then that
tag gets cleared from the parent of the node, even if it is set for some
siblings of the node begin deleted.

This patch changes the logic to include a test for any_tag_set similar
to the logic a little futher down.  Care is taken to ensure that
'nr_cleared_tags' remains equals to the number of entries in the 'tags'
array which are set to '0' (which means that this tag is not set in the
tree below pathp->node, and should be cleared at pathp->node and
possibly above.

[ Nick says: "Linus FYI, I was able to modify the radix tree test
  harness to catch the bug and can no longer trigger it after the fix.
  Resulting code passes all other harness tests as well of course." ]

Christian Trefzer [Wed, 15 Feb 2006 23:17:34 +0000]
[PATCH] neofb: avoid resetting display config on unblank (v2)

There were two mistakes in the register-read-on-(un)blank approach.

- First, without proper register (un)locking the value read back will always
  be zero, and this is what I missed entirely until just now.  Due to this,
  the logic could not be verified at all and I tried some bogus checks which
  are completely stupid.

- Second, the LCD status bit will always be set to zero when the backlight
  has been turned off.  Reading the value back during unblank will disable the
  LCD unconditionally, regardless of the state it is supposed to be in, since
  we set it to zero beforehand.

So this is what we do now:

- create a new variable in struct neofb_par, and use that to determine
  whether to read back registers (initialized to true)

- before actually blanking the screen, read back the register to sense any
  possible change made through Fn key combo

- use proper neoUnlock() / neoLock() to actually read something

- every call to neofb_blank() determines if we read back next time: blanking
  disables readback, unblanking (FB_BLANK_UNBLANK) enables it

This should give us a nice and clean state machine.  Has been thoroughly
tested on a Dell Latitude CPiA / NM220 Chip docked to a C/Dock2 with attached
CRT in all possible combinations of LCD/CRT on/off.  I changed the config via
Fn key, let the console blank, unblanked by keypress - works flawlessly.

Patrick McHardy [Wed, 15 Feb 2006 23:10:22 +0000]
[XFRM]: Fix SNAT-related crash in xfrm4_output_finish

When a packet matching an IPsec policy is SNATed so it doesn't match any
policy anymore it looses its xfrm bundle, which makes xfrm4_output_finish
crash because of a NULL pointer dereference.

This patch directs these packets to the original output path instead. Since
the packets have already passed the POST_ROUTING hook, but need to start at
the beginning of the original output path which includes another
POST_ROUTING invocation, a flag is added to the IPCB to indicate that the
packet was rerouted and doesn't need to pass the POST_ROUTING hook again.

Oleg Nesterov [Wed, 15 Feb 2006 19:13:26 +0000]
[PATCH] fix kill_proc_info() vs fork() theoretical race

copy_process:

attach_pid(p, PIDTYPE_PID, p->pid);
attach_pid(p, PIDTYPE_TGID, p->tgid);

What if kill_proc_info(p->pid) happens in between?

copy_process() holds current->sighand.siglock, so we are safe
in CLONE_THREAD case, because current->sighand == p->sighand.

Otherwise, p->sighand is unlocked, the new process is already
visible to the find_task_by_pid(), but have a copy of parent's
'struct pid' in ->pids[PIDTYPE_TGID].

This means that __group_complete_signal() may hang while doing

do ... while (next_thread() != p)

We can solve this problem if we reverse these 2 attach_pid()s:

attach_pid() does wmb()

group_send_sig_info() calls spin_lock(), which
provides a read barrier. // Yes ?

I don't think we can hit this race in practice, but still.

Oleg Nesterov [Wed, 15 Feb 2006 19:13:24 +0000]
[PATCH] fix kill_proc_info() vs CLONE_THREAD race

There is a window after copy_process() unlocks ->sighand.siglock
and before it adds the new thread to the thread list.

In that window __group_complete_signal(SIGKILL) will not see the
new thread yet, so this thread will start running while the whole
thread group was supposed to exit.

I beleive we have another good reason to place attach_pid(PID/TGID)
under ->sighand.siglock. We can do the same for

release_task()->__unhash_process()

de_thread()->switch_exec_pids()

After that we don't need tasklist_lock to iterate over the thread
list, and we can simplify things, see for example do_sigaction()
or sys_times().

Patrick McHardy [Wed, 15 Feb 2006 09:34:23 +0000]
[NETFILTER]: Fix xfrm lookup after SNAT

To find out if a packet needs to be handled by IPsec after SNAT, packets
are currently rerouted in POST_ROUTING and a new xfrm lookup is done. This
breaks SNAT of non-unicast packets to non-local addresses because the
packet is routed as incoming packet and no neighbour entry is bound to the
dst_entry. In general, it seems to be a bad idea to replace the dst_entry
after the packet was already sent to the output routine because its state
might not match what's expected.

This patch changes the xfrm lookup in POST_ROUTING to re-use the original
dst_entry without routing the packet again. This means no policy routing
can be used for transport mode transforms (which keep the original route)
when packets are SNATed to match the policy, but it looks like the best
we can do for now.

[PATCH] neofb: avoid resetting display config on unblank

Fix issues with the NeoMagic framebuffer driver.

It nicely complements my previous fix already in linus' tree.  The only
thing missing now is that the external CRT will not be activated at neofb
init when external-only is selected, either by register read or
module/kernel parameter.

Testing was done on a Dell Latitude CPi-A/NM2200 chip.

Previous behaviour:
- before booting linux, set the preferred display config X via FN+F8

- boot linux, neofb stores the register values in a private
  variable

- change the display config to Y via keystroke

- leave the machine in peace until display is blanked

- touching any key will result in display config X being restored

- booting up, the BIOS will acknowledge config Y, though...

Current behaviour:
At the time of unblanking, config Y is honoured because we now read back
register contents instead of just overwriting them with outdated values.

13 years ago[PATCH] FRV: Use virtual interrupt disablement
David Howells [Tue, 14 Feb 2006 21:53:20 +0000]
[PATCH] FRV: Use virtual interrupt disablement

Make the FRV arch use virtual interrupt disablement because accesses to the
processor status register (PSR) are relatively slow and because we will
soon have the need to deal with multiple interrupt controls at the same
time (separate h/w and inter-core interrupts).

The way this is done is to dedicate one of the four integer condition code
registers (ICC2) to maintaining a virtual interrupt disablement state
whilst inside the kernel.  This uses the ICC2.Z flag (Zero) to indicate
whether the interrupts are virtually disabled and the ICC2.C flag (Carry)
to indicate whether the interrupts are physically disabled.

ICC2.Z is set to indicate interrupts are virtually disabled.  ICC2.C is set
to indicate interrupts are physically enabled.  Under normal running
conditions Z==0 and C==1.

Disabling interrupts with local_irq_disable() doesn't then actually
physically disable interrupts - it merely sets ICC2.Z to 1.  Should an
interrupt then happen, the exception prologue will note ICC2.Z is set and
branch out of line using one instruction (an unlikely BEQ).  Here it will
physically disable interrupts and clear ICC2.C.

When it comes time to enable interrupts (local_irq_enable()), this simply
clears the ICC2.Z flag and invokes a trap #2 if both Z and C flags are
clear (the HI integer condition).  This can be done with the TIHI
conditional trap instruction.

The trap then physically reenables interrupts and sets ICC2.C again.  Upon
returning the interrupt will be taken as interrupts will then be enabled.
Note that whilst processing the trap, the whole exceptions system is
disabled, and so an interrupt can't happen till it returns.

If no pending interrupt had happened, ICC2.C would still be set, the HI
condition would not be fulfilled, and no trap will happen.

Saving interrupts (local_irq_save) is simply a matter of pulling the ICC2.Z
flag out of the CCR register, shifting it down and masking it off.  This
gives a result of 0 if interrupts were enabled and 1 if they weren't.

Restoring interrupts (local_irq_restore) is then a matter of taking the
saved value mentioned previously and XOR'ing it against 1.  If it was one,
the result will be zero, and if it was zero the result will be non-zero.
This result is then used to affect the ICC2.Z flag directly (it is a
condition code flag after all).  An XOR instruction does not affect the
Carry flag, and so that bit of state is unchanged.  The two flags can then
be sampled to see if they're both zero using the trap (TIHI) as for the
unconditional reenablement (local_irq_enable).

This patch also:

 (1) Modifies the debugging stub (break.S) to handle single-stepping crossing
     into the trap #2 handler and into virtually disabled interrupts.

 (2) Removes superseded fixup pointers from the second instructions in the trap
     tables (there's no a separate fixup table for this).

 (3) Declares the trap #3 vector for use in .org directives in the trap table.

 (4) Moves irq_enter() and irq_exit() in do_IRQ() to avoid problems with
     virtual interrupt handling, and removes the duplicate code that has now
     been folded into irq_exit() (softirq and preemption handling).

 (5) Tells the compiler in the arch Makefile that ICC2 is now reserved.

 (6) Documents the in-kernel ABI, including the virtual interrupts.

 (7) Renames the old irq management functions to different names.

Revert commit d7102e95b7b9c00277562c29aad421d2d521c5f6:

    [PATCH] sched: filter affine wakeups

Apparently caused more than 10% performance regression for aim7 benchmark.
The setup in use is 16-cpu HP rx8620, 64Gb of memory and 12 MSA1000s with 144
disks.  Each disk is 72Gb with a single ext3 filesystem (courtesy of HP, who
supplied benchmark results).

The problem is, for aim7, the wake-up pattern is random, but it still needs
load balancing action in the wake-up path to achieve best performance.  With
the above commit, lack of load balancing hurts that workload.

However, for workloads like database transaction processing, the requirement
is exactly opposite.  In the wake up path, best performance is achieved with
absolutely zero load balancing.  We simply wake up the process on the CPU that
it was previously run.  Worst performance is obtained when we do load
balancing at wake up.

There isn't an easy way to auto detect the workload characteristics.  Ingo's
earlier patch that detects idle CPU and decide whether to load balance or not
doesn't perform with aim7 either since all CPUs are busy (it causes even
bigger perf.  regression).

Revert commit d7102e95b7b9c00277562c29aad421d2d521c5f6, which causes more
than 10% performance regression with aim7.

[PATCH] madvise MADV_DONTFORK/MADV_DOFORK

Currently, copy-on-write may change the physical address of a page even if the
user requested that the page is pinned in memory (either by mlock or by
get_user_pages).  This happens if the process forks meanwhile, and the parent
writes to that page.  As a result, the page is orphaned: in case of
get_user_pages, the application will never see any data hardware DMA's into
this page after the COW.  In case of mlock'd memory, the parent is not getting
the realtime/security benefits of mlock.

In particular, this affects the Infiniband modules which do DMA from and into
user pages all the time.

This patch adds madvise options to control whether memory range is inherited
across fork.  Useful e.g.  for when hardware is doing DMA from/into these

[PATCH] NLM: Fix the NLM_GRANTED callback checks

If 2 threads attached to the same process are blocking on different locks on
different files (maybe even on different servers) but have the same lock
arguments (i.e.  same offset+length - actually quite common, since most
processes try to lock the entire file) then the first GRANTED call that wakes
one up will also wake the other.

Currently when the NLM_GRANTED callback comes in, lockd walks the list of
blocked locks in search of a match to the lock that the NLM server has
granted.  Although it checks the lock pid, start and end, it fails to check
the filehandle and the server address.

By checking the filehandle and server IP address, we ensure that this only
happens if the locks truly are referencing the same file.

[PATCH] HPET: handle multiple ACPI EXTENDED_IRQ resources

When the _CRS for a single HPET contains multiple EXTENDED_IRQ resources,
we overwrote hdp->hd_nirqs every time we found one.

So the driver worked when all the IRQs were described in a single
EXTENDED_IRQ resource, but failed when multiple resources were used.
(Strictly speaking, I think the latter is actually more correct, but both
styles have been used.)

Someday we should remove all the ACPI stuff from hpet.c and use PNP driver
registration instead.  But currently PNP_MAX_IRQ is 2, and HPETs often have
more IRQs.  Hint, hint, Adam :-)

Hugh Dickins [Tue, 14 Feb 2006 21:52:59 +0000]
[PATCH] compound page: default destructor

Somehow I imagined that calling a NULL destructor would free a compound page
rather than oopsing.  No, we must supply a default destructor, __free_pages_ok
using the order noted by prep_compound_page.  hugetlb can still replace this
as before with its own free_huge_page pointer.

The case that needs this is not common: rarely does put_compound_page's
put_page_testzero bring the count down to 0.  But if get_user_pages is applied
to some part of a compound page, without immediate release (e.g.  AIO or
Infiniband), then it's possible for its put_page to come after the containing
vma has been unmapped and the driver done its free_pages.

That's just the kind of case compound pages are supposed to be guarding
against (but Nick points out, nor did PageReserved handle this right).

13 years ago[PATCH] compound page: use page[1].lru
Hugh Dickins [Tue, 14 Feb 2006 21:52:58 +0000]
[PATCH] compound page: use page[1].lru

If a compound page has its own put_page_testzero destructor (the only current
example is free_huge_page), that is noted in page[1].mapping of the compound
page.  But that's rather a poor place to keep it: functions which call
set_page_dirty_lock after get_user_pages (e.g.  Infiniband's
__ib_umem_release) ought to be checking first, otherwise set_page_dirty is
liable to crash on what's not the address of a struct address_space.

And now I'm about to make that worse: it turns out that every compound page
needs a destructor, so we can no longer rely on hugetlb pages going their own
special way, to avoid further problems of page->mapping reuse.  For example,
not many people know that: on 50% of i386 -Os builds, the first tail page of a
compound page purports to be PageAnon (when its destructor has an odd
address), which surprises page_add_file_rmap.

Keep the compound page destructor in page[1].lru.next instead.  And to free up
the common pairing of mapping and index, also move compound page order from
index to lru.prev.  Slab reuses page->lru too: but if we ever need slab to use
compound pages, it can easily stack its use above this.

(akpm: decoded version of the above: the tail pages of a compound page now
have ->mapping==NULL, so there's no need for the set_page_dirty[_lock]()
caller to check that they're not compund pages before doing the dirty).

[MIPS] More uaccess.h fixes with gcc >= 4.0.1.

From Richard Sandiford <richard@codesourcery.com>:

This patch caused a miscompilation of the restore_gp_regs() block
in restore_sigcontext().  This was in a 32-bit kernel compiled with
GCC CVS head.

restore_gp_regs() copies 64-bit user fields into 32-bit variables,
and in this combination, the new __get_user_asm_ll32() clobbers too
many registers.  It says:

/*
 * Get a long long 64 using 32 bit registers.
 */
{ \
__asm__ __volatile__( \
"1: lw %1, (%3) \n" \
"2: lw %D1, 4(%3) \n" \
" move %0, $0 \n" \
"3: .section .fixup,\"ax\" \n" \
"4: li %0, %4 \n" \
" move %1, $0 \n" \
" move %D1, $0 \n" \
" j 3b \n" \
" .previous \n" \
" .section __ex_table,\"a\" \n" \
" " __UA_ADDR " 1b, 4b \n" \
" " __UA_ADDR " 2b, 4b \n" \
" .previous \n" \
: "=r" (__gu_err), "=&r" (val) \
: "0" (0), "r" (addr), "i" (-EFAULT)); \
}

and this requires val (%1) to be a 64-bit value.  In the case I saw,
gcc was using $3 for the 32-bit val, and wasn't expecting $4 to be
clobbered.

Jean Delvare [Wed, 8 Feb 2006 19:38:29 +0000]
[PATCH] i2c: Drop outdated probe/remove code in i2c-isa

Probe and remove methods are now defined at bus level. No more need to
redefine them at driver level in i2c-isa.

This lets us get rid of these annoying messages:
Driver 'it87-isa' needs updating - please use bus_type methods

Thanks to Nicolas Mailhot for reporting the problem and testing the fix.

Jean Delvare [Sun, 5 Feb 2006 22:13:48 +0000]
[PATCH] w83781d: Use real-time status registers

Use the real-time status registers of the Winbond W83782D, W83783S and
W83627HF chips, instead of the interrupt status registers. Interrupts
cannot be trusted at least for voltage inputs, as they are two-times
triggers (as opposed to comparator mode, which we want.) The w83627hf
driver was fixed in a similar way some times ago.
