10 years agoparport: netmos 9845 & 9855 1P4S fixes
Philippe De Muyter [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:58:53 +0000]
parport: netmos 9845 & 9855 1P4S fixes

netmos serial/parallel adapters come in different flavour differing only
by the number of parallel and serial ports, which are encoded in the
subdevice ID.

Last fix of Christian Pellegrin for 9855 2P2S broke support for 9855 1P4S,
and works only by side-effect for the first parallel port of a 2P2S, as
this first parallel port is found by reading the second addr entry of
(struct parport_pc_pci) cards[netmos_9855], which is not initialized, and
hence has value 0, which happens to be the BAR of the first parallel port.

netmos_9xx5_combo entry in (struct parport_pc_pci) cards[], which is used
for a 9845 1P4S must also be fixed for the parallel port support when
there are 4 serial ports because this entry currently gives 2 as BAR index
for the parallel port.  Actually, in this case, BAR 2 is the 3rd serial
port while the parallel port is at BAR 4.

I fixed 9845 1P4S and 9855 1P4S support, while preserving 9855 2P2S support,

- by creating a netmos_9855_2p entry and using it for 9855 boards with 2
  parallel ports : 9855 2P2S and 9855 2P0S boards,

- and by allowing netmos_parallel_init to change not only the number of
  parallel ports (0 or 1), but making it also change the BAR index of the
  parallel port when the serial ports are before the parallel port.

PS: the netmos_9855_2p entry in (struct pciserial_board)
pci_parport_serial_boards[] is needed because netmos_parallel_init has no
clean way to replace FL_BASE2 by FL_BASE4 in the description of the serial
ports in function of the number of parallel ports on the card.

Tested with 9845 1P4S, 9855 1P4S and 9855 2P2S boards.

10 years agoedac: new ppc4xx driver module
Grant Erickson [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:58:45 +0000]
edac: new ppc4xx driver module

This adds support for an EDAC memory controller adaptation driver for the
"ibm,sdram-4xx-ddr2" ECC controller realized in the AMCC PowerPC 405EX[r].

At present, this driver has been developed and tested against the
controller realization in the AMCC PPC405EX[r] on the AMCC Kilauea and
Haleakala boards (256 MiB w/o ECC memory soldered onto the board) and a
proprietary board based on those designs (128 MiB ECC memory, also
soldered onto the board).

In the future, dynamic feature detection and handling needs to be added
for the other realizations of this controller found in the 440SP, 440SPe,
460EX, 460GT and 460SX.

Eventually, this driver will likely be evolved and adapted to the above
variant realizations of this controller as well as broken apart to handle
the other known ECC-capable controllers prevalent in other PPC4xx
processors:

  - IBM SDRAM (405GP, 405CR and 405EP) "ibm,sdram-4xx"
  - IBM DDR1 (440GP, 440GX, 440EP and 440GR) "ibm,sdram-4xx-ddr"
  - Denali DDR1/DDR2 (440EPX and 440GRX) "denali,sdram-4xx-ddr2"

It mostly works when interface is not abused.

So this uses tx_lock to protect data structures from concurrent use

pids: kill signal_struct-> __pgrp/__session and friends

We are wasting 2 words in signal_struct without any reason to implement
task_pgrp_nr() and task_session_nr().

task_session_nr() has no callers since
2e2ba22ea4fd4bb85f0fa37c521066db6775cbef, we can remove it.

task_pgrp_nr() is still (I believe wrongly) used in fs/autofsX and
fs/coda.

This patch reimplements task_pgrp_nr() via task_pgrp_nr_ns(), and kills
__pgrp/__session and the related helpers.

The change in drivers/char/tty_io.c is cosmetic, but hopefully makes sense
anyway.

10 years agopids: refactor vnr/nr_ns helpers to make them safe
Oleg Nesterov [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:58:38 +0000]
pids: refactor vnr/nr_ns helpers to make them safe

Inho, the safety rules for vnr/nr_ns helpers are horrible and buggy.

task_pid_nr_ns(task) needs rcu/tasklist depending on task == current.

As for "special" pids, vnr/nr_ns helpers always need rcu.  However, if
task != current, they are unsafe even under rcu lock, we can't trust
task->group_leader without the special checks.

And almost every helper has a callsite which needs a fix.

Also, it is a bit annoying that the implementations of, say,
task_pgrp_vnr() and task_pgrp_nr_ns() are not "symmetrical".

This patch introduces the new helper, __task_pid_nr_ns(), which is always
safe to use, and turns all other helpers into the trivial wrappers.

After this I'll send another patch which converts task_tgid_xxx() as well,
they're are a bit special.

10 years agoworkqueue: avoid recursion in run_workqueue()
Lai Jiangshan [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:58:24 +0000]
workqueue: avoid recursion in run_workqueue()

1) lockdep will complain when run_workqueue() performs recursion.

2) The recursive implementation of run_workqueue() means that
   flush_workqueue() and its documentation are inconsistent.  This may
   hide deadlocks and other bugs.

3) The recursion in run_workqueue() will poison cwq->current_work, but
   flush_work() and __cancel_work_timer(), etcetera need a reliable
   cwq->current_work.

10 years agoptrace_untrace: fix the SIGNAL_STOP_STOPPED check
Oleg Nesterov [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:58:23 +0000]
ptrace_untrace: fix the SIGNAL_STOP_STOPPED check

This bug is ancient too. ptrace_untrace() must not resume the task
if the group stop in progress, we should set TASK_STOPPED instead.

Unfortunately, we still have problems here:

- if the process/thread was traced, SIGNAL_STOP_STOPPED
  does not necessary means this thread group is stopped.

- ptrace breaks the bookkeeping of ->group_stop_count.

10 years agoptrace_detach: the wrong wakeup breaks the ERESTARTxxx logic
Oleg Nesterov [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:58:21 +0000]
ptrace_detach: the wrong wakeup breaks the ERESTARTxxx logic

Another ancient bug. Consider this trivial test-case,

int main(void)
{
int pid = fork();

if (pid) {
ptrace(PTRACE_ATTACH, pid, NULL, NULL);
wait(NULL);
ptrace(PTRACE_DETACH, pid, NULL, NULL);
} else {
pause();
printf("WE HAVE A KERNEL BUG!!!\n");
}

return 0;
}

the child must not "escape" for sys_pause(), but it can and this was seen
in practice.

This is because ptrace_detach does:

if (!child->exit_state)
wake_up_process(child);

this wakeup can happen after this child has already restarted sys_pause(),
because it gets another wakeup from ptrace_untrace().

With or without this patch, perhaps sys_pause() needs a fix.  But this
wakeup also breaks the SIGNAL_STOP_STOPPED logic in ptrace_untrace().

Remove this wakeup.  The caller saw this task in TASK_TRACED state, and
unless it was SIGKILL'ed in between __ptrace_unlink()->ptrace_untrace()
should handle this case correctly.  If it was SIGKILL'ed, we don't need to
wakup the dying tracee too.

By discussion with Roland.

- Use ->sibling instead of ->ptrace_entry to chain the need to be
  release_task'd childs. Nobody else can use ->sibling, this task
  is EXIT_DEAD and nobody can find it on its own list.

- rename ptrace_dead to dead_childs.

- Now that we don't have the "parallel" untrace code, change back
  reparent_thread() to return void, pass dead_childs as an argument.

Actually, I don't understand why do we notify /sbin/init when we
reparent a zombie, probably it is better to reap it unconditionally.

10 years agosignals: protect cinit from blocked fatal signals
Sukadev Bhattiprolu [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:58:08 +0000]
signals: protect cinit from blocked fatal signals

Normally SIG_DFL signals to global and container-init are dropped early.
But if a signal is blocked when it is posted, we cannot drop the signal
since the receiver may install a handler before unblocking the signal.
Once this signal is queued however, the receiver container-init has no way
of knowing if the signal was sent from an ancestor or descendant
namespace.  This patch ensures that contianer-init drops all SIG_DFL
signals in get_signal_to_deliver() except SIGKILL/SIGSTOP.

If SIGSTOP/SIGKILL originate from a descendant of container-init they are
never queued (i.e dropped in sig_ignored() in an earler patch).

If SIGSTOP/SIGKILL originate from parent namespace, the signal is queued
and container-init processes the signal.

IOW, if get_signal_to_deliver() sees a sig_kernel_only() signal for global
or container-init, the signal must have been generated internally or must
have come from an ancestor ns and we process the signal.

Further, the signal_group_exit() check was needed to cover the case of a
multi-threaded init sending SIGKILL to other threads when doing an exit()
or exec().  But since the new sig_kernel_only() check covers the SIGKILL,
the signal_group_exit() check is no longer needed and can be removed.

Finally, now that we have all pieces in place, set SIGNAL_UNKILLABLE for
container-inits.

http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/11/18/249 and tries to address comments that
came up in that discussion)

init ignores the SIG_DFL signals but we queue them anyway, including
SIGKILL.  This is mostly OK, the signal will be dropped silently when
dequeued, but the pending SIGKILL has 2 bad implications:

        - it implies fatal_signal_pending(), so we confuse things
          like wait_for_completion_killable/lock_page_killable.

        - for the sub-namespace inits, the pending SIGKILL can
          mask (legacy_queue) the subsequent SIGKILL from the
          parent namespace which must kill cinit reliably.
          (preparation, cinits don't have SIGNAL_UNKILLABLE yet)

The patch can't help when init is ptraced, but ptracing of init is not
"safe" anyway.

10 years agosignals: remove 'handler' parameter to tracehook functions
Oleg Nesterov [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:58:00 +0000]
signals: remove 'handler' parameter to tracehook functions

Container-init must behave like global-init to processes within the
container and hence it must be immune to unhandled fatal signals from
within the container (i.e SIG_DFL signals that terminate the process).

But the same container-init must behave like a normal process to processes
in ancestor namespaces and so if it receives the same fatal signal from a
process in ancestor namespace, the signal must be processed.

Implementing these semantics requires that send_signal() determine pid
namespace of the sender but since signals can originate from workqueues/
interrupt-handlers, determining pid namespace of sender may not always be
possible or safe.

This patchset implements the design/simplified semantics suggested by
Oleg Nesterov.  The simplified semantics for container-init are:

- container-init must never be terminated by a signal from a
  descendant process.

- container-init must never be immune to SIGKILL from an ancestor
  namespace (so a process in parent namespace must always be able
  to terminate a descendant container).

- container-init may be immune to unhandled fatal signals (like
  SIGUSR1) even if they are from ancestor namespace. SIGKILL/SIGSTOP
  are the only reliable signals to a container-init from ancestor
  namespace.

This patch:

Based on an earlier patch submitted by Oleg Nesterov and comments from
Roland McGrath (http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/11/19/258).

The handler parameter is currently unused in the tracehook functions.
Besides, the tracehook functions are called with siglock held, so the
functions can check the handler if they later need to.

Removing the parameter simiplifies changes to sig_ignored() in a follow-on
patch.

10 years agodo_wait: fix waiting for the group stop with the dead leader
Oleg Nesterov [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:57:58 +0000]
do_wait: fix waiting for the group stop with the dead leader

do_wait(WSTOPPED) assumes that p->state must be == TASK_STOPPED, this is
not true if the leader is already dead.  Check SIGNAL_STOP_STOPPED instead
and use signal->group_exit_code.

Trivial test-case:

void *tfunc(void *arg)
{
pause();
return NULL;
}

int main(void)
{
pthread_t thr;
pthread_create(&thr, NULL, tfunc, NULL);
pthread_exit(NULL);
return 0;
}

It doesn't react to ^Z (and then to ^C or ^\). The task is stopped, but
bash can't see this.

The bug is very old, and it was reported multiple times. This patch was sent
more than a year ago (http://marc.info/?t=119713920000003) but it was ignored.

This change also fixes other oddities (but not all) in this area.  For
example, before this patch:

$ sleep 100
^Z
[1]+  Stopped                 sleep 100
$ strace -p `pidof sleep`
Process 11442 attached - interrupt to quit

strace hangs in do_wait(), because ->exit_code was already consumed by
bash.  After this patch, strace happily proceeds:

--- SIGTSTP (Stopped) @ 0 (0) ---
restart_syscall(<... resuming interrupted call ...>

To me, this looks much more "natural" and correct.

Another example.  Let's suppose we have the main thread M and sub-thread
T, the process is stopped, and its parent did wait(WSTOPPED).  Now we can
ptrace T but not M.  This looks at least strange to me.

Imho, do_wait() should not confuse the per-thread ptrace stops with the
per-process job control stops.

David Rientjes [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:57:57 +0000]
cpusets: prevent PF_THREAD_BOUND tasks from attaching to non-root cpusets

Kthreads that have the PF_THREAD_BOUND bit set in their flags are bound to a
specific cpu.  Thus, their set of allowed cpus shall not change.

This patch prevents such threads from attaching to non-root cpusets.  They do
not have mempolicies that restrict them to a subset of system nodes and, since
their cpumask may never change, they cannot use any of the features of
cpusets.

The tasks will forever be a member of the root cpuset and will be returned
when listing the tasks attached to that cpuset.

cpusets: allow cpusets to be configured/built on non-SMP systems

Allow cpusets to be configured/built on non-SMP systems

Currently it's impossible to build cpusets under UML on x86-64, since
cpusets depends on SMP and x86-64 UML doesn't support SMP.

There's code in cpusets that doesn't depend on SMP.  This patch surrounds
the minimum amount of cpusets code with #ifdef CONFIG_SMP in order to
allow cpusets to build/run on UP systems (for testing purposes under UML).

When writing to cpuset.mems, cpuset has to update its mems_allowed before
calling update_tasks_nodemask(), but this function might return -ENOMEM.

To avoid this rare case, we allocate the memory before changing

update_cpumask() does.

memcg: remove redundant message at swapon

It's pointed out that swap_cgroup's message at swapon() is nonsense.
Because

  * It can be calculated very easily if all necessary information is
    written in Kconfig.

  * It's not necessary to annoying people at every swapon().

In other view, now, memory usage per swp_entry is reduced to 2bytes from
8bytes(64bit) and I think it's reasonably small.

10 years agocgroups: use css id in swap cgroup for saving memory v5
KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:57:45 +0000]
cgroups: use css id in swap cgroup for saving memory v5

Try to use CSS ID for records in swap_cgroup.  By this, on 64bit machine,
size of swap_cgroup goes down to 2 bytes from 8bytes.

This means, when 2GB of swap is equipped, (assume the page size is 4096bytes)

From size of swap_cgroup = 2G/4k * 8 = 4Mbytes.
To   size of swap_cgroup = 2G/4k * 2 = 1Mbytes.

Reduction is large.  Of course, there are trade-offs.  This CSS ID will
add overhead to swap-in/swap-out/swap-free.

But in general,
  - swap is a resource which the user tend to avoid use.
  - If swap is never used, swap_cgroup area is not used.
  - Reading traditional manuals, size of swap should be proportional to
    size of memory. Memory size of machine is increasing now.

I think reducing size of swap_cgroup makes sense.

Note:
  - ID->CSS lookup routine has no locks, it's under RCU-Read-Side.
  - memcg can be obsolete at rmdir() but not freed while refcnt from
    swap_cgroup is available.

Changelog v4->v5:
 - reworked on to memcg-charge-swapcache-to-proper-memcg.patch
Changlog ->v4:
 - fixed not configured case.
 - deleted unnecessary comments.
 - fixed NULL pointer bug.

10 years agomemcg: charge swapcache to proper memcg
Daisuke Nishimura [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:57:43 +0000]
memcg: charge swapcache to proper memcg

memcg_test.txt says at 4.1:

This swap-in is one of the most complicated work. In do_swap_page(),
following events occur when pte is unchanged.

(1) the page (SwapCache) is looked up.
(2) lock_page()
(3) try_charge_swapin()
(4) reuse_swap_page() (may call delete_swap_cache())
(5) commit_charge_swapin()
(6) swap_free().

Considering following situation for example.

(A) The page has not been charged before (2) and reuse_swap_page()
    doesn't call delete_from_swap_cache().
(B) The page has not been charged before (2) and reuse_swap_page()
    calls delete_from_swap_cache().
(C) The page has been charged before (2) and reuse_swap_page() doesn't
    call delete_from_swap_cache().
(D) The page has been charged before (2) and reuse_swap_page() calls
    delete_from_swap_cache().

    memory.usage/memsw.usage changes to this page/swp_entry will be
 Case          (A)      (B)       (C)     (D)
         Event
       Before (2)     0/ 1     0/ 1      1/ 1    1/ 1
          ===========================================
          (3)        +1/+1    +1/+1     +1/+1   +1/+1
          (4)          -       0/ 0       -     -1/ 0
          (5)         0/-1     0/ 0     -1/-1    0/ 0
          (6)          -       0/-1       -      0/-1
          ===========================================
       Result         1/ 1     1/ 1      1/ 1    1/ 1

       In any cases, charges to this page should be 1/ 1.

In case of (D), mem_cgroup_try_get_from_swapcache() returns NULL
(because lookup_swap_cgroup() returns NULL), so "+1/+1" at (3) means
charges to the memcg("foo") to which the "current" belongs.
OTOH, "-1/0" at (4) and "0/-1" at (6) means uncharges from the memcg("baa")
to which the page has been charged.

So, if the "foo" and "baa" is different(for example because of task move),
this charge will be moved from "baa" to "foo".

I think this is an unexpected behavior.

This patch fixes this by modifying mem_cgroup_try_get_from_swapcache()
to return the memcg to which the swapcache has been charged if PCG_USED bit
is set.
IIUC, checking PCG_USED bit of swapcache is safe under page lock.

10 years agomemcg: fix OOM killer under memcg
KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:57:38 +0000]
memcg: fix OOM killer under memcg

This patch tries to fix OOM Killer problems caused by hierarchy.
Now, memcg itself has OOM KILL function (in oom_kill.c) and tries to
kill a task in memcg.

But, when hierarchy is used, it's broken and correct task cannot
be killed. For example, in following cgroup

/groupA/ hierarchy=1, limit=1G,
01 nolimit
02 nolimit
All tasks' memory usage under /groupA, /groupA/01, groupA/02 is limited to
groupA's 1Gbytes but OOM Killer just kills tasks in groupA.

This patch provides makes the bad process be selected from all tasks
under hierarchy. BTW, currently, oom_jiffies is updated against groupA
in above case. oom_jiffies of tree should be updated.

To see how oom_jiffies is used, please check mem_cgroup_oom_called()
callers.

10 years agomemcg: fix shrinking memory to return -EBUSY by fixing retry algorithm
KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:57:36 +0000]
memcg: fix shrinking memory to return -EBUSY by fixing retry algorithm

As pointed out, shrinking memcg's limit should return -EBUSY after
reasonable retries.  This patch tries to fix the current behavior of
shrink_usage.

Before looking into "shrink should return -EBUSY" problem, we should fix
hierarchical reclaim code.  It compares current usage and current limit,
but it only makes sense when the kernel reclaims memory because hit
limits.  This is also a problem.

What this patch does are.

  1. add new argument "shrink" to hierarchical reclaim. If "shrink==true",
     hierarchical reclaim returns immediately and the caller checks the kernel
     should shrink more or not.
     (At shrinking memory, usage is always smaller than limit. So check for
      usage < limit is useless.)

  2. For adjusting to above change, 2 changes in "shrink"'s retry path.
     2-a. retry_count depends on # of children because the kernel visits
  the children under hierarchy one by one.
     2-b. rather than checking return value of hierarchical_reclaim's progress,
  compares usage-before-shrink and usage-after-shrink.
  If usage-before-shrink <= usage-after-shrink, retry_count is
  decremented.

memcg: use CSS ID

Assigning CSS ID for each memcg and use css_get_next() for scanning hierarchy.

Assume folloing tree.

group_A (ID=3)
/01 (ID=4)
   /0A (ID=7)
/02 (ID=10)
group_B (ID=5)
and task in group_A/01/0A hits limit at group_A.

reclaim will be done in following order (round-robin).
group_A(3) -> group_A/01 (4) -> group_A/01/0A (7) -> group_A/02(10)
-> group_A -> .....

Round robin by ID. The last visited cgroup is recorded and restart
from it when it start reclaim again.
(More smart algorithm can be implemented..)

No cgroup_mutex or hierarchy_mutex is required.

10 years agocgroups: don't change release_agent when remount failed
Li Zefan [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:57:30 +0000]
cgroups: don't change release_agent when remount failed

Remount can fail in either case:
  - wrong mount options is specified, or option 'noprefix' is changed.
  - a to-be-added subsys is already mounted/active.

When using remount to change 'release_agent', for the above former failure
case, remount will return errno with release_agent unchanged, but for the
latter case, remount will return EBUSY with relase_agent changed, which is
unexpected I think:

 # mount -t cgroup -o cpu xxx /cgrp1
 # mount -t cgroup -o cpuset,release_agent=agent1 yyy /cgrp2
 # cat /cgrp2/release_agent

 # mount -t cgroup -o remount,cpuset,noprefix,release_agent=agent2 yyy /cgrp2
 mount: /cgrp2 not mounted already, or bad option
 # cat /cgrp2/release_agent

cgroup: fix frequent -EBUSY at rmdir

In following situation, with memory subsystem,

/groupA use_hierarchy==1
/01 some tasks
/02 some tasks
/03 some tasks
/04 empty

When tasks under 01/02/03 hit limit on /groupA, hierarchical reclaim
is triggered and the kernel walks tree under groupA. In this case,
rmdir /groupA/04 fails with -EBUSY frequently because of temporal
refcnt from the kernel.

In general. cgroup can be rmdir'd if there are no children groups and
no tasks. Frequent fails of rmdir() is not useful to users.
(And the reason for -EBUSY is unknown to users.....in most cases)

This patch tries to modify above behavior, by
- retries if css_refcnt is got by someone.
- add "return value" to pre_destroy() and allows subsystem to
  say "we're really busy!"

10 years agocgroup: CSS ID support
KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:57:25 +0000]
cgroup: CSS ID support

Patch for Per-CSS(Cgroup Subsys State) ID and private hierarchy code.

This patch attaches unique ID to each css and provides following.

 - css_lookup(subsys, id)
   returns pointer to struct cgroup_subysys_state of id.
 - css_get_next(subsys, id, rootid, depth, foundid)
   returns the next css under "root" by scanning

When cgroup_subsys->use_id is set, an id for css is maintained.

The cgroup framework only parepares
- css_id of root css for subsys
- id is automatically attached at creation of css.
- id is *not* freed automatically. Because the cgroup framework
  don't know lifetime of cgroup_subsys_state.
  free_css_id() function is provided. This must be called by subsys.

There are several reasons to develop this.
- Saving space .... For example, memcg's swap_cgroup is array of
  pointers to cgroup. But it is not necessary to be very fast.
  By replacing pointers(8bytes per ent) to ID (2byes per ent), we can
  reduce much amount of memory usage.

- Scanning without lock.
  CSS_ID provides "scan id under this ROOT" function. By this, scanning
  css under root can be written without locks.
  ex)
  do {
rcu_read_lock();
next = cgroup_get_next(subsys, id, root, &found);
/* check sanity of next here */
css_tryget();
rcu_read_unlock();
id = found + 1
 } while(...)

Characteristics:
- Each css has unique ID under subsys.
- Lifetime of ID is controlled by subsys.
- css ID contains "ID" and "Depth in hierarchy" and stack of hierarchy
- Allowed ID is 1-65535, ID 0 is UNUSED ID.

Design Choices:
- scan-by-ID v.s. scan-by-tree-walk.
  As /proc's pid scan does, scan-by-ID is robust when scanning is done
  by following kind of routine.
  scan -> rest a while(release a lock) -> conitunue from interrupted
  memcg's hierarchical reclaim does this.

- When subsys->use_id is set, # of css in the system is limited to
  65535.

($pid is in the root cgroup)
echo $pid > /cgroup/CG1/CG2/tasks

Previously this operation would fail with -EPERM and would have to be
performed as two steps:
echo $pid > /cgroup/CG1/tasks
echo $pid > /cgroup/CG1/CG2/tasks

Also, the target cgroup no longer needs to be empty to move a task there.

10 years agoext3: avoid false EIO errors

ext3: avoid false EIO errors

Sometimes block_write_begin() can map buffers in a page but later we
fail to copy data into those buffers (because the source page has been
paged out in the mean time).  We then end up with !uptodate mapped
buffers.  To add a bit more to the confusion, block_write_end() does
not commit any data (and thus does not any mark buffers as uptodate) if
we didn't succeed with copying all the data.

Commit f4fc66a894546bdc88a775d0e83ad20a65210bcb (ext3: convert to new
aops) missed these cases and thus we were inserting non-uptodate
buffers to transaction's list which confuses JBD code and it reports IO
errors, aborts a transaction and generally makes users afraid about
their data ;-P.

This patch fixes the problem by reorganizing ext3_..._write_end() code
to first call block_write_end() to mark buffers with valid data
uptodate and after that we file only uptodate buffers to transaction's
lists.

We also fix a problem where we could leave blocks allocated beyond i_size
(i_disksize in fact) because of failed write. We now add inode to orphan
list when write fails (to be safe in case we crash) and then truncate blocks

10 years agoext3: return -EIO not -ESTALE on directory traversal through deleted inode
Bryan Donlan [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:57:15 +0000]
ext3: return -EIO not -ESTALE on directory traversal through deleted inode

ext3_iget() returns -ESTALE if invoked on a deleted inode, in order to
report errors to NFS properly.  However, in ext[234]_lookup(), this
-ESTALE can be propagated to userspace if the filesystem is corrupted such
that a directory entry references a deleted inode.  This leads to a
misleading error message - "Stale NFS file handle" - and confusion on the
part of the admin.

The bug can be easily reproduced by creating a new filesystem, making a
link to an unused inode using debugfs, then mounting and attempting to ls
-l said link.

This patch thus changes ext3_lookup to return -EIO if it receives -ESTALE
from ext3_iget(), as ext3 does for other filesystem metadata corruption;
and also invokes the appropriate ext*_error functions when this case is
detected.

spi-gpio: allow operation without CS signal

Change spi-gpio so that it is possible to drive SPI communications over
GPIO without the need for a chipselect signal.

This is useful in very small setups where there's only one slave device
on the bus.

This patch does not affect existing setups.

I use this for a tiny communication channel between an embedded device and
a microcontroller.  There are not enough GPIOs available for chipselect
and it's not needed anyway in this case.

gpio: gpio_{request,free}() now required (feature removal)

We want to phase out the GPIO "autorequest" mechanism in gpiolib and
require all callers to use gpio_request().

 - Update feature-removal-schedule
 - Update the documentation now
 - Convert the relevant pr_warning() in gpiolib to a WARN()
   so folk using this mechanism get a noisy stack dump

Some drivers and board init code will probably need to change.
Implementations not using gpiolib will still be fine; they are already
required to implement gpio_{request,free}() stubs.
