Jesper Juhl [Mon, 26 Jun 2006 07:24:33 +0000]
[PATCH] Bluetooth: fix potential NULL ptr deref in dtl1_cs.c::dtl1_hci_send_frame()

There's a problem in drivers/bluetooth/dtl1_cs.c::dtl1_hci_send_frame()

If bt_skb_alloc() returns NULL, then skb_reserve(s, NSHL); will cause a
NULL pointer deref - ouch.  If we can't allocate the resources we require
we need to tell the caller by returning -ENOMEM.

Found by the coverity checker as bug #409

[PATCH] work around ppc64 bootup bug by making mutex-debugging save/restore irqs

It seems ppc64 wants to lock mutexes in early bootup code, with interrupts
disabled, and they expect interrupts to stay disabled, else they crash.

[PATCH] Fix kdump Crash Kernel boot memory reservation for NUMA machines

This patch will fix a boot memory reservation bug that trashes memory on
the ES7000 when loading the kdump crash kernel.

The code in arch/x86_64/kernel/setup.c to reserve boot memory for the crash
kernel uses the non-numa aware "reserve_bootmem" function instead of the
NUMA aware "reserve_bootmem_generic".  I checked to make sure that no other
function was using "reserve_bootmem" and found none, except the ones that
had NUMA ifdef'ed out.

I have tested this patch only on an ES7000 with NUMA on and off (numa=off)
in a single (non-NUMA) and multi-cell (NUMA) configurations.

KaiGai Kohei [Sun, 25 Jun 2006 12:49:26 +0000]
[PATCH] pacct: none-delayed process accounting accumulation

In current 2.6.17 implementation, signal_struct refered from task_struct is
used for per-process data structure.  The pacct facility also uses it as a
per-process data structure to store stime, utime, minflt, majflt.  But those
members are saved in __exit_signal().  It's too late.

For example, if some threads exits at same time, pacct facility has a
possibility to drop accountings for a part of those threads.  (see, the
following 'The results of original 2.6.17 kernel') I think accounting
information should be completely collected into the per-process data structure
before writing out an accounting record.

This patch fixes this matter.  Accumulation of stime, utime, minflt and majflt
are done before generating accounting record.

13 years ago[PATCH] pacct: avoidance to refer the last thread as a representation of the process
KaiGai Kohei [Sun, 25 Jun 2006 12:49:25 +0000]
[PATCH] pacct: avoidance to refer the last thread as a representation of the process

When pacct facility generate an 'ac_flag' field in accounting record, it
refers a task_struct of the thread which died last in the process.  But any
other task_structs are ignored.

Therefore, pacct facility drops ASU flag even if root-privilege operations are
used by any other threads except the last one.  In addition, AFORK flag is
always set when the thread of group-leader didn't die last, although this
process has called execve() after fork().

We have a same matter in ac_exitcode.  The recorded ac_exitcode is an exit
code of the last thread in the process.  There is a possibility this exitcode
is not the group leader's one.

KaiGai Kohei [Sun, 25 Jun 2006 12:49:24 +0000]
[PATCH] pacct: add pacct_struct to fix some pacct bugs.

The pacct facility need an i/o operation when an accounting record is
generated.  There is a possibility to wake OOM killer up.  If OOM killer is
activated, it kills some processes to make them release process memory
regions.

But acct_process() is called in the killed processes context before calling
exit_mm(), so those processes cannot release own memory.  In the results, any
processes stop in this point and it finally cause a system stall.

Jeremy Fitzhardinge [Sun, 25 Jun 2006 12:49:17 +0000]
[PATCH] Fix bounds check in vsnprintf, to allow for a 0 size and NULL buffer

This change allows callers to use a 0-byte buffer and a NULL buffer pointer
with vsnprintf, so it can be used to determine how large the resulting
formatted string will be.

Previously the code effectively treated a size of 0 as a size of 4G (on
32-bit systems), with other checks preventing it from actually trying to
emit the string - but the terminal \0 would still be written, which would
crash if the buffer is NULL.

This change changes the boundary check so that 'end' points to the putative
location of the terminal '\0', which is only written if size > 0.

vsnprintf still allows the buffer size to be set very large, to allow
unbounded buffer sizes (to implement sprintf, etc).

last minute but it wasn't used so far.  The following patch should change
that.  My tests show that this is all that's needed.

If OLDNAME is a symlink setting the flag causes linkat to follow the
symlink and create a hardlink with the target.  This is actually the
behavior POSIX demands for link() as well but Linux wisely does not do
this.  With this flag (which will most likely be in the next POSIX
revision) the programmer can choose the behavior, defaulting to the safe
variant.  As a side effect it is now possible to implement a
POSIX-compliant link(2) function for those who are interested.

  touch file
  ln -s file symlink

  linkat(fd, "symlink", fd, "newlink", 0)
    -> newlink is hardlink of symlink

  linkat(fd, "symlink", fd, "newlink", AT_SYMLINK_FOLLOW)
    -> newlink is hardlink of file

The value of AT_SYMLINK_FOLLOW is determined by the definition we already
use in glibc.

If a cpu hotplug callback fails on CPU_UP_PREPARE, all callbacks will be
called with CPU_UP_CANCELED.  A few of these callbacks assume that on
CPU_UP_PREPARE a pointer to task has been stored in a percpu array.  This
assumption is not true if CPU_UP_PREPARE fails and the following calls to

because of passing a NULL pointer.

When the verbose (-v) option is used with scripts/kernel-doc, this option
reports when the kernel-doc format is malformed and apparently contains

that file (posted to the linux-mm mailing list Mon.  2006-June-12).

VFS uses current->files pointer as lock owner ID, and it wouldn't be
prudent to expose this value to userspace.  So scramble it with XTEA using
a per connection random key, known only to the kernel.  Only one direction
needs to be implemented, since the ID is never sent in the reverse
direction.

The XTEA algorithm is implemented inline since it's simple enough to do so,
and this adds less complexity than if the crypto API were used.

Don't put requests into the background when a fatal interrupt occurs while the
request is in userspace.  This removes a major wart from the implementation.

Backgrounding of requests was introduced to allow breaking of deadlocks.
However now the same can be achieved by aborting the filesystem through the
'abort' sysfs attribute.

This is a change in the interface, but should not cause problems, since these
kinds of deadlocks never happen during normal operation.

[PATCH] More !tty cleanups in drivers/char

Another bunch of checks in the char drivers .put_char() and .write()
routines, where tty can never be NULL.  This patch removes these checks to
save some code.  Coverity choked at those with the following bug ids:

isicom.c  767, 766
specialix.c 773, 774
synclink_cs.c 779, 781
synclink_gt.c 784, 785
synclinkmp.c 784, 785
