10 years agoFix build errors due to CONFIG_BRANCH_TRACER=y
Linus Torvalds [Tue, 7 Apr 2009 14:59:41 +0000]
Fix build errors due to CONFIG_BRANCH_TRACER=y

The code that enables branch tracing for all (non-constant) branches
plays games with the preprocessor and #define's the C 'if ()' construct
to do tracing.

That's all fine, but it fails for some unusual but valid C code that is
sometimes used in macros, notably by the intel-iommu code:

if (i=drhd->iommu, drhd->ignored) ..

because now the preprocessor complains about multiple arguments to the
'if' macro.

So make the macro expansion of this particularly horrid trick use
varargs, and handle the case of comma-expressions in if-statements.  Use
another macro to do it cleanly in just one place.

This replaces a patch by David (and acked by Steven) that did this all
inside that one already-too-horrid macro.

10 years agosplice: fix deadlock in splicing to file
Miklos Szeredi [Mon, 6 Apr 2009 15:41:00 +0000]
splice: fix deadlock in splicing to file

There's a possible deadlock in generic_file_splice_write(),
splice_from_pipe() and ocfs2_file_splice_write():

 - task A calls generic_file_splice_write()
 - this calls inode_double_lock(), which locks i_mutex on both
   pipe->inode and target inode
 - ordering depends on inode pointers, can happen that pipe->inode is
   locked first
 - __splice_from_pipe() needs more data, calls pipe_wait()
 - this releases lock on pipe->inode, goes to interruptible sleep
 - task B calls generic_file_splice_write(), similarly to the first
 - this locks pipe->inode, then tries to lock inode, but that is
   already held by task A
 - task A is interrupted, it tries to lock pipe->inode, but fails, as
   it is already held by task B
 - ABBA deadlock

Fix this by explicitly ordering locks: the outer lock must be on
target inode and the inner lock (which is later unlocked and relocked)
must be on pipe->inode.  This is OK, pipe inodes and target inodes
form two nonoverlapping sets, generic_file_splice_write() and friends
are not called with a target which is a pipe.

10 years agonilfs2: support nanosecond timestamp
Ryusuke Konishi [Tue, 7 Apr 2009 02:02:00 +0000]
nilfs2: support nanosecond timestamp

After a review of user's feedback for finding out other compatibility
issues, I found nilfs improperly initializes timestamps in inode;
CURRENT_TIME was used there instead of CURRENT_TIME_SEC even though nilfs
didn't have nanosecond timestamps on disk.  A few users gave us the report
that the tar program sometimes failed to expand symbolic links on nilfs,
and it turned out to be the cause.

Instead of applying the above displacement, I've decided to support
nanosecond timestamps on this occation.  Fortunetaly, a needless 64-bit
field was in the nilfs_inode struct, and I found it's available for this
purpose without impact for the users.

So, this will do the enhancement and resolve the tar problem.

Ryusuke Konishi [Tue, 7 Apr 2009 02:01:59 +0000]
nilfs2: introduce secondary super block

The former versions didn't have extra super blocks.  This improves the
weak point by introducing another super block at unused region in tail of
the partition.

This doesn't break disk format compatibility; older versions just ingore
the secondary super block, and new versions just recover it if it doesn't
exist.  The partition created by an old mkfs may not have unused region,
but in that case, the secondary super block will not be added.

This doesn't make more redundant copies of the super block; it is a future
work.

10 years agonilfs2: simplify handling of active state of segments
Ryusuke Konishi [Tue, 7 Apr 2009 02:01:58 +0000]
nilfs2: simplify handling of active state of segments

will reduce some lines of segment constructor.  Previously, the state was
complexly controlled through a list of segments in order to keep
consistency in meta data of usage state of segments.  Instead, this
presents ``calculated'' active flags to userland cleaner program and stop
maintaining its real flag on disk.

Only by this fake flag, the cleaner cannot exactly know if each segment is
reclaimable or not.  However, the recent extension of nilfs_sustat ioctl
struct (nilfs2-extend-nilfs_sustat-ioctl-struct.patch) can prevent the
cleaner from reclaiming in-use segment wrongly.

So, now I can apply this for simplification.

10 years agonilfs2: mark minor flag for checkpoint created by internal operation

nilfs2: mark minor flag for checkpoint created by internal operation

Nilfs creates checkpoints even for garbage collection or metadata updates
such as checkpoint mode change.  So, user often sees checkpoints created
only by such internal operations.

This is inconvenient in some situations.  For example, application that
monitors checkpoints and changes them to snapshots, will fall into an
infinite loop because it cannot distinguish internally created
checkpoints.

identification.

10 years agonilfs2: use fixed sized types for ioctl structures
Ryusuke Konishi [Tue, 7 Apr 2009 02:01:52 +0000]
nilfs2: use fixed sized types for ioctl structures

Nilfs ioctl had structures not having fixed sized types such as:

  struct nilfs_argv {
         void *v_base;
         size_t v_nmembs;
         size_t v_size;
         int v_index;
         int v_flags;
  };

Further, some of them are wrongly aligned:

  e.g.

  struct nilfs_cpmode {
        __u64 cm_cno;
        int cm_mode;
  };

The size of wrongly aligned structures varies depending on
architectures, and it breaks the identity of ioctl commands, which
leads to arch dependent errors.

Previously, these are compensated by using compat_ioctl.

This fixes these problems and allows removal of compat ioctl.

Since this will change sizes of those structures, binary compatibility
for the past utilities will once break; new utilities have to be used
instead.  However, it would be helpful to avoid platform dependent
problems in the long term.

nilfs2: fix buggy behavior seen in enumerating checkpoints

This will fix the weird behavior of lscp command in listing continuously

Though the function can be repeatedly called to enumerate checkpoints and
it can skip invalid checkpoint entries, the index value was not carried
between successive calls.

The bug has long been present, and came to surface after applying a bugfix
nilfs2-fix-problems-of-memory-allocation-in-ioctl.patch, which increased
frequency of calling the function.  The similar bugfix was already applied
for ``snapshots'' by

nilfs2: fix gc failure on volumes keeping numerous snapshots

 nilfs_cleanerd[20670]: cannot clean segments: No such file or directory
 nilfs_cleanerd[20670]: shutdown

When creating thousands of snapshots, the cleaner daemon had rarely died
as above due to an error returned from the kernel code.

After applying the recent patch which fixed memory allocation problems in
ioctl (Message-Id: <20081215.155840.105124170.ryusuke@osrg.net>), the
problem gets more frequent.

It turned out to be a bug of nilfs_ioctl_wrap_copy function and one of its
callback routines to read out information of snapshots; if the
nilfs_ioctl_wrap_copy function divided a large read request into multiple
requests, the second and later requests have failed since a restart
position on snapshot meta data was not properly set forward.

It's a deficiency of the callback interface that cannot pass the restart
position among multiple requests.  This patch fixes the issue by allowing
nilfs_ioctl_wrap_copy and snapshot read functions to exchange a position
argument.

nilfs2: avoid double error caused by nilfs_transaction_end

Pekka Enberg pointed out that double error handlings found after
nilfs_transaction_end() can be avoided by separating abort operation:

 OK, I don't understand this. The only way nilfs_transaction_end() can
 fail is if we have NILFS_TI_SYNC set and we fail to construct the
 segment. But why do we want to construct a segment if we don't commit?

 I guess what I'm asking is why don't we have a separate
 nilfs_transaction_abort() function that can't fail for the erroneous
 case to avoid this double error value tracking thing?

This does the separation and renames nilfs_transaction_end() to
nilfs_transaction_commit() for clarification.

Since, some calls of these functions were used just for exclusion control
against the segment constructor, they are replaced with semaphore
operations.

nilfs2: fix problems of memory allocation in ioctl

This is another patch for fixing the following problems of a memory
copy function in nilfs2 ioctl:

(1) It tries to allocate 128KB size of memory even for small objects.

(2) Though the function repeatedly tries large memory allocations
    while reducing the size, GFP_NOWAIT flag is not specified.
    This increases the possibility of system memory shortage.

(3) During the retries of (2), verbose warnings are printed
    because _GFP_NOWARN flag is not used for the kmalloc calls.

The first patch was still doing large allocations by kmalloc which are
repeatedly tried while reducing the size.

Andi Kleen told me that using copy_from_user for large memory is not
good from the viewpoint of preempt latency:

For the function in question, the size of buffer memory can be reduced
since the buffer is repeatedly used for a number of small objects.  On
the other hand, it may incur large preempt latencies for larger buffer
because a copy_from_user (and a copy_to_user) was applied only once
each cycle.

With that, this revision uses the order 0 allocations with
__get_free_pages() to fix the original problems.

nilfs2: recovery functions

This adds recovery function on mount.

Usually the recovery is achieved by just finding the latest super
root.  When logs without checkpoints were appended for data sync
operations after the latest super root, the recovery function will
perform roll forwarding and reconstruct new log(s) with a super root.

10 years agonilfs2: fix missed-sync issue for do_sync_mapping_range()
Ryusuke Konishi [Tue, 7 Apr 2009 02:01:38 +0000]
nilfs2: fix missed-sync issue for do_sync_mapping_range()

Chris Mason pointed out that there is a missed sync issue in
nilfs_writepages():

On Wed, 17 Dec 2008 21:52:55 -0500, Chris Mason wrote:
> It looks like nilfs_writepage ignores WB_SYNC_NONE, which is used by
> do_sync_mapping_range().

where WB_SYNC_NONE in do_sync_mapping_range() was replaced with
WB_SYNC_ALL by Nick's patch (commit:
ee53a891f47444c53318b98dac947ede963db400).

This fixes the problem by letting nilfs_writepages() write out the log of
file data within the range if sync_mode is WB_SYNC_ALL.

This involves removal of nilfs_file_aio_write() which was previously
needed to ensure O_SYNC sync writes.

10 years agonilfs2: buffer and page operations
Ryusuke Konishi [Tue, 7 Apr 2009 02:01:27 +0000]
nilfs2: buffer and page operations

This adds common routines for buffer/page operations used in B-tree
node caches, meta data files, or segment constructor (log writer).

NILFS uses copy functions for buffers and pages due to the following
reasons:

 1) Relocation required for COW
    Since NILFS changes address of on-disk blocks, moving buffers
    in page cache is needed for the buffers which are not addressed
    by a file offset.  If buffer size is smaller than page size,
    this involves partial copy of pages.

 2) Freezing mmapped pages
    NILFS calculates checksums for each log to ensure its validity.
    If page data changes after the checksum calculation, this validity
    check will not work correctly.  To avoid this failure for mmaped
    pages, NILFS freezes their data by copying.

 3) Copy-on-write for DAT pages
    NILFS makes clones of DAT page caches in a copy-on-write manner
    during GC processes, and this ensures atomicity and consistency
    of the DAT in the transient state.

In addition, NILFS uses two obsolete functions, nilfs_mark_buffer_dirty()
and nilfs_clear_page_dirty() respectively.

* nilfs_mark_buffer_dirty() was required to avoid NULL pointer
  dereference faults:

  Since the page cache of B-tree node pages or data page cache of pseudo
  inodes does not have a valid mapping->host, calling mark_buffer_dirty()
  for their buffers causes the fault; it calls __mark_inode_dirty(NULL)
  through __set_page_dirty().

* nilfs_clear_page_dirty() was needed in the two cases:

 1) For B-tree node pages and data pages of the dat/gcdat, NILFS2 clears
    page dirty flags when it copies back pages from the cloned cache
    (gcdat->{i_mapping,i_btnode_cache}) to its original cache
    (dat->{i_mapping,i_btnode_cache}).

 2) Some B-tree operations like insertion or deletion may dispose buffers
    in dirty state, and this needs to cancel the dirty state of their
    pages.  clear_page_dirty_for_io() caused faults because it does not
    clear the dirty tag on the page cache.

10 years agonamespaces: ipc namespaces: implement support for posix msqueues
Serge E. Hallyn [Tue, 7 Apr 2009 02:01:10 +0000]
namespaces: ipc namespaces: implement support for posix msqueues

Implement multiple mounts of the mqueue file system, and link it to usage
of CLONE_NEWIPC.

Each ipc ns has a corresponding mqueuefs superblock.  When a user does
clone(CLONE_NEWIPC) or unshare(CLONE_NEWIPC), the unshare will cause an
internal mount of a new mqueuefs sb linked to the new ipc ns.

When a user does 'mount -t mqueue mqueue /dev/mqueue', he mounts the
mqueuefs superblock.

Posix message queues can be worked with both through the mq_* system calls
(see mq_overview(7)), and through the VFS through the mqueue mount.  Any
usage of mq_open() and friends will work with the acting task's ipc
namespace.  Any actions through the VFS will work with the mqueuefs in
which the file was created.  So if a user doesn't remount mqueuefs after
unshare(CLONE_NEWIPC), mq_open("/ab") will not be reflected in "ls
/dev/mqueue".

If task a mounts mqueue for ipc_ns:1, then clones task b with a new ipcns,
ipcns:2, and then task a is the last task in ipc_ns:1 to exit, then (1)
ipc_ns:1 will be freed, (2) it's superblock will live on until task b
umounts the corresponding mqueuefs, and vfs actions will continue to
succeed, but (3) sb->s_fs_info will be NULL for the sb corresponding to
the deceased ipc_ns:1.

To make this happen, we must protect the ipc reference count when

a) a task exits and drops its ipcns->count, since it might be dropping
   it to 0 and freeing the ipcns

b) a task accesses the ipcns through its mqueuefs interface, since it
   bumps the ipcns refcount and might race with the last task in the ipcns
   exiting.

So the kref is changed to an atomic_t so we can use
atomic_dec_and_lock(&ns->count,mq_lock), and every access to the ipcns
through ns = mqueuefs_sb->s_fs_info is protected by the same lock.

10 years agonamespaces: mqueue ns: move mqueue_mnt into struct ipc_namespace
Serge E. Hallyn [Tue, 7 Apr 2009 02:01:08 +0000]
namespaces: mqueue ns: move mqueue_mnt into struct ipc_namespace

Move mqueue vfsmount plus a few tunables into the ipc_namespace struct.
The CONFIG_IPC_NS boolean and the ipc_namespace struct will serve both the
posix message queue namespaces and the SYSV ipc namespaces.

The sysctl code will be fixed separately in patch 3.  After just this
patch, making a change to posix mqueue tunables always changes the values
in the initial ipc namespace.

10 years agonamespaces: move proc_net_get_sb to a generic fs/super.c helper
Serge E. Hallyn [Tue, 7 Apr 2009 02:01:07 +0000]
namespaces: move proc_net_get_sb to a generic fs/super.c helper

The mqueuefs filesystem will use this helper as well.  Proc's main get_sb
could also be made to use it, but that will require a bit more rework.

kprobes: support per-kprobe disabling

Add disable_kprobe() and enable_kprobe() to disable/enable kprobes
temporarily.

disable_kprobe() asynchronously disables probe handlers of specified
kprobe.  So, after calling it, some handlers can be called at a while.
enable_kprobe() enables specified kprobe.

aggr_pre_handler and aggr_post_handler check disabled probes.  On the
other hand aggr_break_handler and aggr_fault_handler don't check it
because these handlers will be called while executing pre or post handlers
and usually those help error handling.
