Miklos Szeredi [Wed, 26 Apr 2006 08:49:06 +0000]
[fuse] fix deadlock between fuse_put_super() and request_end(), try #2

A deadlock was possible, when the last reference to the superblock was
held due to a background request containing a file reference.

Releasing the file would release the vfsmount which in turn would
release the superblock.  Since sbput_sem is held during the fput() and
fuse_put_super() tries to acquire this same semaphore, a deadlock
results.

The solution is to move the fput() outside the region protected by
sbput_sem.

It was wrong, because it didn't take into account the requirement,
that iput() for background requests must be performed synchronously
with ->put_super(), otherwise active inodes may remain after unmount.

The right solution is to keep the sbput_sem and perform iput() within

class of command.  This patch provides and array of the classifications and a

uses that information in the command processing to determine how long to poll
for.  The function is exported so the 1.2 driver can use the functionality to
determine how long to wait for a DataAvailable interrupt if interrupts are
being used.

[PATCH] tpm: reorganize sysfs files

Many of the sysfs files were calling the TPM_GetCapability command with array.
Since for 1.2 more sysfs files of this type are coming I am generalizing the
array so there can be one array and the unique parts can be filled in just
before the command is called.

[PATCH] tpm: spacing cleanups

The following patch set contains numerous changes to the base tpm driver
(tpm.c) to support the next generation of TPM chips.  The changes include new
sysfs files because of more relevant data being available, a function to
access the timeout and duration values for the chip, and changes to make use
of those duration values.  Duration in the TPM specification is defined as the
maximum amount of time the chip could take to return the results.  Commands
are in one of three categories short, medium and long.  Also included are
cleanups of how the commands for the sysfs files are composed to reduce a
bunch of redundant arrays.

This patch:

Fix minor spacing issues.

[PATCH] x86_64: Fix a race in the free_iommu path

We do this by removing a micro-optimization that tries to avoid grabbing
the iommu_bitmap_lock spinlock and using a bus-locked operation.

This still races with other simultaneous alloc_iommu or free_iommu(size >
1) which both use bus-unlocked operations.

The end result of this race is eventually ending up with an
iommu_gart_bitmap that has bits errornously set all over, making large
contiguous iommu space allocations fail with 'PCI-DMA: Out of IOMMU space'.

13 years ago[PATCH] add migratepage address space op to shmem
Lee Schermerhorn [Sat, 22 Apr 2006 09:35:48 +0000]
[PATCH] add migratepage address space op to shmem

Basic problem: pages of a shared memory segment can only be migrated once.

In 2.6.16 through 2.6.17-rc1, shared memory mappings do not have a
migratepage address space op.  Therefore, migrate_pages() falls back to
default processing.  In this path, it will try to pageout() dirty pages.
Once a shared memory page has been migrated it becomes dirty, so
migrate_pages() will try to page it out.  However, because the page count
is 3 [cache + current + pte], pageout() will return PAGE_KEEP because
is_page_cache_freeable() returns false.  This will abort all subsequent
migrations.

This patch adds a migratepage address space op to shared memory segments to
avoid taking the default path.  We use the "migrate_page()" function
because it knows how to migrate dirty pages.  This allows shared memory
segment pages to migrate, subject to other conditions such as # pte's
referencing the page [page_mapcount(page)], when requested.

I think this is safe.  If we're migrating a shared memory page, then we
found the page via a page table, so it must be in memory.

Can be verified with memtoy and the shmem-mbind-test script, both
available at:  http://free.linux.hp.com/~lts/Tools/

Fix a possible Oops in the Siemens Gigaset base driver when the device is

isdn4linux link level (LL) is properly informed if a connection is broken

- Avoid unsafe checks of URB status fields outside the URB completion
  handlers, keep track of in-use URBs myself instead.

- If an isochronous transfer URB completes with status==0, also check the
  status of the frame descriptors.

- Verify length of interrupt messages received from the device.

- Align the length limit on transmitted AT commands with the device
  documentation.

- In case of AT response receive overrun, keep newly arrived instead of old
  unread data.

- Remove redundant check of device ID in the USB probe function.

- Correct and improve some comments and formatting.
