Fix f_flags/f_mode in case of lookup_instantiate_filp() from open(pathname, 3)

Just set f_flags when shoving struct file into nameidata; don't
postpone that until __dentry_open().  do_filp_open() has correct
value; lookup_instantiate_filp() doesn't - we lose the difference
between O_RDWR and 3 by that point.

We still set .intent.open.flags, so no fs code needs to be changed.

anonfd: Allow making anon files read-only

It seems a couple places such as arch/ia64/kernel/perfmon.c and
drivers/infiniband/core/uverbs_main.c could use anon_inode_getfile()
instead of a private pseudo-fs + alloc_file(), if only there were a way
to get a read-only file.  So provide this by having anon_inode_getfile()
create a read-only file if we pass O_RDONLY in flags.

No driver uses SG_SET_TRANSFORM any more in Linux, since the ide-scsi

When alloc_file() and init_file() were combined, the error handling of

ALSA: fix incorrect rounding direction in snd_interval_ratnum()

The direction of rounding is incorrect in the snd_interval_ratnum()
It was detected with following parameters (sb8 driver playing
8kHz stereo file):
 - num is always 1000000
 - requested frequency rate is from 7999 to 7999 (single frequency)

The first loop calculates div_down(num, freq->min) which is 125.
Thus, a frequency range's minimum value is 1000000 / 125 = 8000 Hz.
The second loop calculates div_up(num, freq->max) which is 126
The frequency range's maximum value is 1000000 / 126 = 7936 Hz.
The range maximum is lower than the range minimum so the function
fails due to empty result range.

ALSA: HDA: add powersaving hook for Realtek

The current Realtek code makes no specific provision for turning stuff
off. The codec chip is placed into low-power mode generically, but this
doesn't turn off any external hardware connected to it, in particular
external amplifiers.

This patch creates a hook function that is called by the codec
suspend/resume functions. It ought to disable any external hardware in a
device-specific way. I've implemented a generic ALC889 function that
sets the EAPD pin properly, and used it for the Acer Aspire 8930G which
can benefit from this feature.

On my laptop, this results in ~0.5W extra savings.

pata_cmd64x: fix overclocking of UDMA0-2 modes

adev->dma_mode stores the transfer mode value not UDMA mode number
so the condition in cmd64x_set_dmamode() is always true and the higher
UDMA clock is always selected.  This can potentially result in data
corruption when UDMA33 device is used, when 40-wire cable is used or
when the error recovery code decides to lower the device speed down.

9 years agofix braindamage in audit_tree.c untag_chunk()
Al Viro [Sat, 19 Dec 2009 15:59:45 +0000]
fix braindamage in audit_tree.c untag_chunk()

... aka "Al had badly fscked up when writing that thing and nobody
noticed until Eric had fixed leaks that used to mask the breakage".

The function essentially creates a copy of old array sans one element
and replaces the references to elements of original (they are on cyclic
lists) with those to corresponding elements of new one.  After that the
old one is fair game for freeing.

First of all, there's a dumb braino: when we get to list_replace_init we
use indices for wrong arrays - position in new one with the old array
and vice versa.

Another bug is more subtle - termination condition is wrong if the
element to be excluded happens to be the last one.  We shouldn't go
until we fill the new array, we should go until we'd finished the old
one.  Otherwise the element we are trying to kill will remain on the
cyclic lists...

That crap used to be masked by several leaks, so it was not quite
trivial to hit.  Eric had fixed some of those leaks a while ago and the
shit had hit the fan...

platform_get_irq returns -ENXIO on failure, so !irq was probably
always true.  Better use (int)irq <= 0.  Note that a return value of
zero is still handled as error even though this could mean irq0.

This is a followup to 305b3228f9ff4d59f49e6d34a7034d44ee8ce2f0 that

[S390] cio: fix channel path vary

Channel path vary is currently broken: channel paths which are varied
offline are still used by Linux. The reason for this is that:

 * the path mask indicating which paths of an I/O device can be used
   is reset by each internal I/O request
 * the logic that checks if a path group is already in its designated
   target state incorrectly interprets the result "is correctly set"
   as "is correctly set and available"

Fix this by resetting the path mask only for internal I/O requests
which affect the path mask and by correcting the pgid check logic.

Frederic Weisbecker [Thu, 17 Dec 2009 00:33:54 +0000]
hw-breakpoints: Fix hardware breakpoints -> perf events dependency

The kbuild's select command doesn't propagate through the config
dependencies.

Hence the current rules of hardware breakpoint's config can't
ensure perf can never be disabled under us.

We have:

config X86
selects HAVE_HW_BREAKPOINTS

config HAVE_HW_BREAKPOINTS
select PERF_EVENTS

config PERF_EVENTS
[...]

x86 will select the breakpoints but that won't propagate to perf
events. The user can still disable the latter, but it is
necessary for the breakpoints.

What we need is:

 - x86 selects HAVE_HW_BREAKPOINTS and PERF_EVENTS
 - HAVE_HW_BREAKPOINTS depends on PERF_EVENTS

so that we ensure PERF_EVENTS is enabled and frozen for x86.

This fixes the following kind of build errors:

 In file included from arch/x86/kernel/hw_breakpoint.c:31:
 include/linux/hw_breakpoint.h: In function 'hw_breakpoint_addr':

set_desc_affinity() is already checking if the incoming cpu mask
intersects with the cpu online mask or not. So there is no need
for the apic op cpu_mask_to_apicid_and() to check again
and return BAD_APICID.

Remove the BAD_APICID return value from cpu_mask_to_apicid_and()
and also fix set_desc_affinity() to return -1 instead of using BAD_APICID
to represent error conditions (as cpu_mask_to_apicid_and() can return
logical or physical apicid values and BAD_APICID is really to represent
bad physical apic id).

9 years agoreadahead: add blk_run_backing_dev
Hisashi Hifumi [Thu, 17 Dec 2009 23:27:26 +0000]
readahead: add blk_run_backing_dev

I added blk_run_backing_dev on page_cache_async_readahead so readahead I/O
is unpluged to improve throughput on especially RAID environment.

The normal case is, if page N become uptodate at time T(N), then T(N) <=
T(N+1) holds.  With RAID (and NFS to some degree), there is no strict
ordering, the data arrival time depends on runtime status of individual
disks, which breaks that formula.  So in do_generic_file_read(), just
after submitting the async readahead IO request, the current page may well
be uptodate, so the page won't be locked, and the block device won't be
implicitly unplugged:

               if (PageReadahead(page))
                        page_cache_async_readahead()
                if (!PageUptodate(page))
                                goto page_not_up_to_date;
                //...
page_not_up_to_date:
                lock_page_killable(page);

Therefore explicit unplugging can help.

Following is the test result with dd.

9 years agortc: set wakeup capability for I2C and SPI RTC drivers
Anton Vorontsov [Thu, 17 Dec 2009 23:27:23 +0000]
rtc: set wakeup capability for I2C and SPI RTC drivers

RTC core won't allow wakeup alarms to be set if RTC devices' parent (i.e.
i2c_client or spi_device) isn't wakeup capable.

For I2C devices there is I2C_CLIENT_WAKE flag exists that we can pass via
board info, and if set, I2C core will initialize wakeup capability.  For
SPI devices there is no such flag at all.

I believe that it's not platform code responsibility to allow or disallow
wakeups, instead, drivers themselves should set the capability if a device
can trigger wakeups.

That's what drivers/base/power/sysfs.c says:

 * It is the responsibility of device drivers to enable (or disable)
 * wakeup signaling as part of changing device power states, respecting
 * the policy choices provided through the driver model.

I2C and SPI RTC devices send wakeup events via interrupt lines, so we
should set the wakeup capability if IRQ is routed.

Ideally we should also check irq for wakeup capability before setting
device's capability, i.e.

if (can_irq_wake(irq))
device_set_wakeup_capable(&client->dev, 1);

But there is no can_irq_wake() call exist, and it is not that trivial to
implement it for all interrupts controllers and complex/cascaded setups.

drivers/base/power/sysfs.c also covers these cases:

 * Devices may not be able to generate wakeup events from all power
 * states.  Also, the events may be ignored in some configurations;
 * for example, they might need help from other devices that aren't
 * active

So there is no guarantee that wakeup will actually work, and so I think
there is no point in being pedantic wrt checking IRQ wakeup capability.
