toshiba: use ioremap_cached

The switch of ioremap to default to uncached doesn't break this driver
but it does needlessly slow it down as BIOS space is cachable and this
driver is quite happy scanning cached ROM space.

x86, voyager: fix ioremap_nocache()

James Bottomley reported that the following commit:

| commit 6371b495991debfd1417b17c2bc4f7d7bae05739
| Author: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>
| Date:   Wed Jan 30 13:33:40 2008 +0100
|
|     x86: change ioremap() to default to uncached

broke Voyager.

James says:

" it broke a class of voyager machines: those which
  rely on the quad interrupt controller (QIC).  The precis of why they
  broke is because the QIC does IPIs (or CPIs in its terminology) via
  cache line interference: you interrupt a processor by moving a
  designated memory area to write exclusive in the cache (by simply
  writing to the line) and the CPU acks the interrupt by moving it back to
  read shared (by reading from it).  That area, is, of course, mapped by
  ioremap, so reversing the ioremap semantics and adding the uncached bit
  completely breaks the QIC. "

Sorry about that!

ACPI: Fix acpi_processor_idle and idle= boot parameters interaction

acpi_processor_idle and "idle=" boot parameter interaction is broken.
The problem is that, at boot time acpi driver is checking for "idle=" boot
option and not registering the acpi idle handler. But, when there is a CST
changed callback (typically when switching AC <-> battery or suspend-resume)
there are no checks for boot_option_idle_override and acpi idle handler tries
to get installed with nasty side effects.

With CPU_IDLE configured this issue causes results in a nasty oops on CST
change callback and without CPU_IDLE there is no oops, but boot option
of "idle=" gets ignored and acpi idle handler gets installed.

Change the behavior to not do anything in acpi idle handler when there is a
"idle=" boot option.

Note that the problem is only there when "idle=" boot option is used.

Ingo Molnar [Wed, 30 Apr 2008 09:50:11 +0000]
fix drivers/media/common/tuners/ build bug

x86.git randconfig testing found a build failure on latest -git:

 drivers/built-in.o: In function `set_type':
 tuner-core.c:(.text+0x2a9a26): undefined reference to `tea5761_attach'

with the following config:

 http://redhat.com/~mingo/misc/config-Wed_Apr_30_10_21_40_CEST_2008.bad

the problem is caused by the drivers/media/common/tuners/ subdirectory
not being part of the kbuild hierarchy anymore, due to commit
7c91f0624 ("V4L/DVB(7767): Move tuners to common/tuners").

this seems similar to the problem also reported by Mike Galbraith.

11 years agorevert "memory hotplug: allocate usemap on the section with pgdat"
Andrew Morton [Wed, 30 Apr 2008 07:55:17 +0000]
revert "memory hotplug: allocate usemap on the section with pgdat"

This:

commit 86f6dae1377523689bd8468fed2f2dd180fc0560
Author: Yasunori Goto <y-goto@jp.fujitsu.com>
Date:   Mon Apr 28 02:13:33 2008 -0700

    memory hotplug: allocate usemap on the section with pgdat

    Usemaps are allocated on the section which has pgdat by this.

    Because usemap size is very small, many other sections usemaps are allocated
    on only one page.  If a section has usemap, it can't be removed until removing
    other sections.  This dependency is not desirable for memory removing.

    Pgdat has similar feature.  When a section has pgdat area, it must be the last
    section for removing on the node.  So, if section A has pgdat and section B
    has usemap for section A, Both sections can't be removed due to dependency
    each other.

    To solve this issue, this patch collects usemap on same section with pgdat.
    If other sections doesn't have any dependency, this section will be able to be
    removed finally.

mm: fix warning on memory offline

KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki found a warning message in the buffer dirtying code that
is coming from page migration caller.

What was happening is that migrate_page_copy wants to transfer the PG_dirty
bit from old page to new page, so what it would do is set_page_dirty(newpage).
However set_page_dirty() is used to set the entire page dirty, wheras in
this case, only part of the page was dirty, and it also was not uptodate.

Marking the whole page dirty with set_page_dirty would lead to corruption or
unresolvable conditions -- a dirty && !uptodate page and dirty && !uptodate
buffers.

Possibly we could just ClearPageDirty(oldpage); SetPageDirty(newpage);
however in the interests of keeping the change minimal...

11 years agoinfrastructure to debug (dynamic) objects
Thomas Gleixner [Wed, 30 Apr 2008 07:55:01 +0000]
infrastructure to debug (dynamic) objects

We can see an ever repeating problem pattern with objects of any kind in the
kernel:

1) freeing of active objects
2) reinitialization of active objects

Both problems can be hard to debug because the crash happens at a point where
we have no chance to decode the root cause anymore.  One problem spot are
kernel timers, where the detection of the problem often happens in interrupt
context and usually causes the machine to panic.

While working on a timer related bug report I had to hack specialized code
into the timer subsystem to get a reasonable hint for the root cause.  This
debug hack was fine for temporary use, but far from a mergeable solution due
to the intrusiveness into the timer code.

The code further lacked the ability to detect and report the root cause
instantly and keep the system operational.

Keeping the system operational is important to get hold of the debug
information without special debugging aids like serial consoles and special
knowledge of the bug reporter.

The problems described above are not restricted to timers, but timers tend to
expose it usually in a full system crash.  Other objects are less explosive,
but the symptoms caused by such mistakes can be even harder to debug.

Instead of creating specialized debugging code for the timer subsystem a
generic infrastructure is created which allows developers to verify their code
and provides an easy to enable debug facility for users in case of trouble.

The debugobjects core code keeps track of operations on static and dynamic
objects by inserting them into a hashed list and sanity checking them on
object operations and provides additional checks whenever kernel memory is
freed.

The tracked object operations are:
- initializing an object
- adding an object to a subsystem list
- deleting an object from a subsystem list

Each operation is sanity checked before the operation is executed and the
subsystem specific code can provide a fixup function which allows to prevent
the damage of the operation.  When the sanity check triggers a warning message
and a stack trace is printed.

The list of operations can be extended if the need arises.  For now it's
limited to the requirements of the first user (timers).

The core code enqueues the objects into hash buckets.  The hash index is
generated from the address of the object to simplify the lookup for the check
on kfree/vfree.  Each bucket has it's own spinlock to avoid contention on a
global lock.

The debug code can be compiled in without being active.  The runtime overhead
is minimal and could be optimized by asm alternatives.  A kernel command line
option enables the debugging code.

Thanks to Ingo Molnar for review, suggestions and cleanup patches.

11 years agoslab: add a flag to prevent debug_free checks on a kmem_cache
Thomas Gleixner [Wed, 30 Apr 2008 07:54:59 +0000]
slab: add a flag to prevent debug_free checks on a kmem_cache

This is a preperatory patch for the debugobjects infrastructure.  The flag

11 years agofuse: support writable mmap
Miklos Szeredi [Wed, 30 Apr 2008 07:54:41 +0000]
fuse: support writable mmap

Quoting Linus (3 years ago, FUSE inclusion discussions):

  "User-space filesystems are hard to get right. I'd claim that they
   are almost impossible, unless you limit them somehow (shared
   writable mappings are the nastiest part - if you don't have those,
   you can reasonably limit your problems by limiting the number of
   dirty pages you accept through normal "write()" calls)."

Instead of attempting the impossible, I've just waited for the dirty page
accounting infrastructure to materialize (thanks to Peter Zijlstra and
others).  This nicely solved the biggest problem: limiting the number of pages
used for write caching.

Some small details remained, however, which this largish patch attempts to
address.  It provides a page writeback implementation for fuse, which is
completely safe against VM related deadlocks.  Performance may not be very
good for certain usage patterns, but generally it should be acceptable.

It has been tested extensively with fsx-linux and bash-shared-mapping.

Fuse page writeback design
--------------------------

fuse_writepage() allocates a new temporary page with GFP_NOFS|__GFP_HIGHMEM.
It copies the contents of the original page, and queues a WRITE request to the
userspace filesystem using this temp page.

The writeback is finished instantly from the MM's point of view: the page is
removed from the radix trees, and the PageDirty and PageWriteback flags are
cleared.

For the duration of the actual write, the NR_WRITEBACK_TEMP counter is
incremented.  The per-bdi writeback count is not decremented until the actual
write completes.

On dirtying the page, fuse waits for a previous write to finish before
proceeding.  This makes sure, there can only be one temporary page used at a
time for one cached page.

This approach is wasteful in both memory and CPU bandwidth, so why is this
complication needed?

The basic problem is that there can be no guarantee about the time in which
the userspace filesystem will complete a write.  It may be buggy or even
malicious, and fail to complete WRITE requests.  We don't want unrelated parts
of the system to grind to a halt in such cases.

Also a filesystem may need additional resources (particularly memory) to
complete a WRITE request.  There's a great danger of a deadlock if that
allocation may wait for the writepage to finish.

Currently there are several cases where the kernel can block on page
writeback:

  - allocation order is larger than PAGE_ALLOC_COSTLY_ORDER
  - page migration
  - throttle_vm_writeout (through NR_WRITEBACK)
  - sync(2)

Of course in some cases (fsync, msync) we explicitly want to allow blocking.
So for these cases new code has to be added to fuse, since the VM is not
tracking writeback pages for us any more.

As an extra safetly measure, the maximum dirty ratio allocated to a single
fuse filesystem is set to 1% by default.  This way one (or several) buggy or
malicious fuse filesystems cannot slow down the rest of the system by hogging
dirty memory.

With appropriate privileges, this limit can be raised through
'/sys/class/bdi/<bdi>/max_ratio'.

11 years agomm: Add NR_WRITEBACK_TEMP counter
Miklos Szeredi [Wed, 30 Apr 2008 07:54:38 +0000]
mm: Add NR_WRITEBACK_TEMP counter

Fuse will use temporary buffers to write back dirty data from memory mappings
(normal writes are done synchronously).  This is needed, because there cannot
be any guarantee about the time in which a write will complete.

By using temporary buffers, from the MM's point if view the page is written
back immediately.  If the writeout was due to memory pressure, this
effectively migrates data from a full zone to a less full zone.

This patch adds a new counter (NR_WRITEBACK_TEMP) for the number of pages used
as temporary buffers.

11 years agomm: bdi: allow setting a minimum for the bdi dirty limit
Peter Zijlstra [Wed, 30 Apr 2008 07:54:35 +0000]
mm: bdi: allow setting a minimum for the bdi dirty limit

Under normal circumstances each device is given a part of the total write-back
cache that relates to its current avg writeout speed in relation to the other
devices.

min_ratio - allows one to assign a minimum portion of the write-back cache to
a particular device.  This is useful in situations where you might want to
provide a minimum QoS.  (One request for this feature came from flash based
storage people who wanted to avoid writing out at all costs - they of course
needed some pdflush hacks as well)

max_ratio - allows one to assign a maximum portion of the dirty limit to a
particular device.  This is useful in situations where you want to avoid one
device taking all or most of the write-back cache.  Eg.  an NFS mount that is
prone to get stuck, or a FUSE mount which you don't trust to play fair.

Add "min_ratio" to /sys/class/bdi.  This indicates the minimum percentage of
the global dirty threshold allocated to this bdi.

pidns: make pid->level and pid_ns->level unsigned

These values represent the nesting level of a namespace and pids living in it,
and it's always non-negative.

Turning this from int to unsigned int saves some space in pid.c (11 bytes on
x86 and 64 on ia64) by letting the compiler optimize the pid_nr_ns a bit.
E.g.  on ia64 this removes the sign extension calls, which compiler adds to
optimize access to pid->nubers[ns->level].

pids: introduce change_pid() helper

Based on Eric W. Biederman's idea.

Without tasklist_lock held task_session()/task_pgrp() can return NULL if the
caller races with setprgp()/setsid() which does detach_pid() + attach_pid().
This can happen even if task == current.

Intoduce the new helper, change_pid(), which should be used instead.  This way
the caller always sees the special pid != NULL, either old or new.

Also change the prototype of attach_pid(), it always returns 0 and nobody
check the returned value.

pids: de_thread: don't clear session/pgrp pids for the old leader

Based on Eric W. Biederman's idea.

Unless task == current, without tasklist_lock held task_session()/task_pgrp()
can return NULL if the caller races with de_thread() which switches the group
leader.

Change transfer_pid() to not clear old->pids[type].pid for the old leader.
This means that its .pid can point to "nowhere", but this is already true for
sub-threads, and the old leader is not group_leader() any longer.  IOW, with
or without this change we can't trust task's special pids unless it is the
group leader.

With this change the following code

rcu_read_lock();
task = find_task_by_xxx();
do_something(task_pgrp(task), task_session(task));
rcu_read_unlock();

can't race with exec and hit the NULL pid.

Since netlink packets are now processed in the context of the sending task,

Besides, I fix the call to fill_pid() from taskstats_exit(), since the
