Johannes Weiner [Wed, 4 Mar 2009 15:21:30 +0000]
xtensa: cope with ram beginning at higher addresses

The current assumption of the memory code is that the first RAM PFN in
the system is 0.

Adjust the relevant code to play well with setups where memory starts
at higher addresses, indicated by PLATFORM_DEFAULT_MEM_START.

The new memory model looks like this:

+----------+--+----------------------+----------------+
|          |  |                      |                |
|          |  |         RAM          |                |
|          |  |                      |                |
+----------+--+----------------------+----------------+
|          |  |                      |                |
+- PFN 0   |  +- min_low_pfn         +- max_low_pfn   +- max_pfn
           |
           +- ARCH_PFN_OFFSET
           +- PLATFORM_DEFAULT_MEM_START >> PAGE_SIZE

The memory map contains pages starting from pfn ARCH_PFN_OFFSET up to
max_low_pfn.  The only zone used right now will span exactly the same
region.

Usually, ARCH_PFN_OFFSET and min_low_pfn are the same value.  Handle
them separately for robustness.  Gapping pages will be in the memory
map but marked as reserved and won't be touched.

xtensa: use correct stack pointer for stack traces

Right now, the xtensa stacktrace code reads the _current_ kernel stack
pointer if nothing is supplied.  With debugging facilities like sysrq
this means that the backtrace of the sysrq-handler is printed instead
of a trace of the given task's stack.

When no stack pointer is specified in show_trace() and show_stack(),
use the stack pointer that comes with the handed in task descriptor to
make stack traces more useful.

11 years agoFactor out #ifdefs from kernel/spinlock.c to LOCK_CONTENDED_FLAGS
Robin Holt [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:59:45 +0000]
Factor out #ifdefs from kernel/spinlock.c to LOCK_CONTENDED_FLAGS

SGI has observed that on large systems, interrupts are not serviced for a
long period of time when waiting for a rwlock.  The following patch series
re-enables irqs while waiting for the lock, resembling the code which is
already there for spinlocks.

I only made the ia64 version, because the patch adds some overhead to the
fast path.  I assume there is currently no demand to have this for other
architectures, because the systems are not so large.  Of course, the
possibility to implement raw_{read|write}_lock_flags for any architecture
is still there.

This patch:

The new macro LOCK_CONTENDED_FLAGS expands to the correct implementation
depending on the config options, so that IRQ's are re-enabled when
possible, but they remain disabled if CONFIG_LOCKDEP is set.

Coly Li [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:59:27 +0000]
fs/adfs: return f_fsid for statfs(2)

Currently many file systems in Linux kernel do not return f_fsid in statfs
info, the value is set as 0 in vfs layer.  Anyway, in some conditions,
f_fsid from statfs(2) is useful, especially being used as (f_fsid, ino)
pair to uniquely identify a file.

Basic idea of the patches is generating a unique fs ID by
huge_encode_dev(sb->s_bdev->bd_dev) during file system mounting life time
(no endian consistent issue).  sb is a point of struct super_block of
current mounted file system being accessed by statfs(2).

This patch:

Make adfs return f_fsid info for statfs(2), and do a little variable
renaming in adfs_statfs().

11 years agopreadv/pwritev: Add preadv and pwritev system calls.
Gerd Hoffmann [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:59:23 +0000]
preadv/pwritev: Add preadv and pwritev system calls.

This patch adds preadv and pwritev system calls.  These syscalls are a
pretty straightforward combination of pread and readv (same for write).
They are quite useful for doing vectored I/O in threaded applications.
Using lseek+readv instead opens race windows you'll have to plug with
locking.

Other systems have such system calls too, for example NetBSD, check
here: http://www.daemon-systems.org/man/preadv.2.html

The application-visible interface provided by glibc should look like
this to be compatible to the existing implementations in the *BSD family:

  ssize_t preadv(int d, const struct iovec *iov, int iovcnt, off_t offset);
  ssize_t pwritev(int d, const struct iovec *iov, int iovcnt, off_t offset);

This prototype has one problem though: On 32bit archs is the (64bit)
offset argument unaligned, which the syscall ABI of several archs doesn't
allow to do.  At least s390 needs a wrapper in glibc to handle this.  As
we'll need a wrappers in glibc anyway I've decided to push problem to
glibc entriely and use a syscall prototype which works without
arch-specific wrappers inside the kernel: The offset argument is
explicitly splitted into two 32bit values.

The patch sports the actual system call implementation and the windup in
the x86 system call tables.  Other archs follow as separate patches.

11 years agoparport: netmos 9845 & 9855 1P4S fixes
Philippe De Muyter [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:58:53 +0000]
parport: netmos 9845 & 9855 1P4S fixes

netmos serial/parallel adapters come in different flavour differing only
by the number of parallel and serial ports, which are encoded in the
subdevice ID.

Last fix of Christian Pellegrin for 9855 2P2S broke support for 9855 1P4S,
and works only by side-effect for the first parallel port of a 2P2S, as
this first parallel port is found by reading the second addr entry of
(struct parport_pc_pci) cards[netmos_9855], which is not initialized, and
hence has value 0, which happens to be the BAR of the first parallel port.

netmos_9xx5_combo entry in (struct parport_pc_pci) cards[], which is used
for a 9845 1P4S must also be fixed for the parallel port support when
there are 4 serial ports because this entry currently gives 2 as BAR index
for the parallel port.  Actually, in this case, BAR 2 is the 3rd serial
port while the parallel port is at BAR 4.

I fixed 9845 1P4S and 9855 1P4S support, while preserving 9855 2P2S support,

- by creating a netmos_9855_2p entry and using it for 9855 boards with 2
  parallel ports : 9855 2P2S and 9855 2P0S boards,

- and by allowing netmos_parallel_init to change not only the number of
  parallel ports (0 or 1), but making it also change the BAR index of the
  parallel port when the serial ports are before the parallel port.

PS: the netmos_9855_2p entry in (struct pciserial_board)
pci_parport_serial_boards[] is needed because netmos_parallel_init has no
clean way to replace FL_BASE2 by FL_BASE4 in the description of the serial
ports in function of the number of parallel ports on the card.

Tested with 9845 1P4S, 9855 1P4S and 9855 2P2S boards.

edac: new ppc4xx driver module

This adds support for an EDAC memory controller adaptation driver for the
"ibm,sdram-4xx-ddr2" ECC controller realized in the AMCC PowerPC 405EX[r].

At present, this driver has been developed and tested against the
controller realization in the AMCC PPC405EX[r] on the AMCC Kilauea and
Haleakala boards (256 MiB w/o ECC memory soldered onto the board) and a
proprietary board based on those designs (128 MiB ECC memory, also
soldered onto the board).

In the future, dynamic feature detection and handling needs to be added
for the other realizations of this controller found in the 440SP, 440SPe,
460EX, 460GT and 460SX.

Eventually, this driver will likely be evolved and adapted to the above
variant realizations of this controller as well as broken apart to handle
the other known ECC-capable controllers prevalent in other PPC4xx
processors:

  - IBM SDRAM (405GP, 405CR and 405EP) "ibm,sdram-4xx"
  - IBM DDR1 (440GP, 440GX, 440EP and 440GR) "ibm,sdram-4xx-ddr"
  - Denali DDR1/DDR2 (440EPX and 440GRX) "denali,sdram-4xx-ddr2"

We are wasting 2 words in signal_struct without any reason to implement
task_pgrp_nr() and task_session_nr().

task_session_nr() has no callers since
2e2ba22ea4fd4bb85f0fa37c521066db6775cbef, we can remove it.

task_pgrp_nr() is still (I believe wrongly) used in fs/autofsX and
fs/coda.

This patch reimplements task_pgrp_nr() via task_pgrp_nr_ns(), and kills
__pgrp/__session and the related helpers.

The change in drivers/char/tty_io.c is cosmetic, but hopefully makes sense
anyway.

11 years agopids: refactor vnr/nr_ns helpers to make them safe
Oleg Nesterov [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:58:38 +0000]
pids: refactor vnr/nr_ns helpers to make them safe

Inho, the safety rules for vnr/nr_ns helpers are horrible and buggy.

task_pid_nr_ns(task) needs rcu/tasklist depending on task == current.

As for "special" pids, vnr/nr_ns helpers always need rcu.  However, if
task != current, they are unsafe even under rcu lock, we can't trust
task->group_leader without the special checks.

And almost every helper has a callsite which needs a fix.

Also, it is a bit annoying that the implementations of, say,
task_pgrp_vnr() and task_pgrp_nr_ns() are not "symmetrical".

This patch introduces the new helper, __task_pid_nr_ns(), which is always
safe to use, and turns all other helpers into the trivial wrappers.

After this I'll send another patch which converts task_tgid_xxx() as well,
they're are a bit special.

11 years agopids: improve get_task_pid() to fix the unsafe sys_wait4()->task_pgrp()
Oleg Nesterov [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:58:36 +0000]
pids: improve get_task_pid() to fix the unsafe sys_wait4()->task_pgrp()

sys_wait4() does get_pid(task_pgrp(current)), this is not safe.  We can
add rcu lock/unlock around, but we already have get_task_pid() which can
be improved to handle the special pids in more reliable manner.

11 years agopids: document task_pgrp/task_session is not safe without tasklist/rcu
Oleg Nesterov [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:58:35 +0000]
pids: document task_pgrp/task_session is not safe without tasklist/rcu

Even if task == current, it is not safe to dereference the result of
task_pgrp/task_session.  We can race with another thread which changes the
special pid via setpgid/setsid.

Document this.  The next 2 patches give an example of the unsafe usage, we
have more bad users.

11 years agohpet: fix the possibility of insane return value of hpet_calibrate() against SMI

hpet: fix the possibility of insane return value of hpet_calibrate() against SMI

hpet_calibrate() has a possibility of miss-calibration due to SMI.  If SMI
interrupts in the while loop of calibration, then return value will be
big.  This change calibrates until stabilizing by the return value with a
small value.

As pointed out by Cedric Le Goater (in response to Alexey's original
comment wrt mqns), ipc_sysctl.c and utsname_sysctl.c are using
CONFIG_PROC_FS, not CONFIG_PROC_SYSCTL, to determine whether to define
the proc_handlers.  Change that.

Tony Battersby [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:58:26 +0000]
ipc: make shm_get_stat() more robust

shm_get_stat() assumes idr_find(&shm_ids(ns).ipcs_idr) returns "struct
shmid_kernel *"; all other callers assume that it returns "struct
kern_ipc_perm *".  This works because "struct kern_ipc_perm" is currently
the first member of "struct shmid_kernel", but it would be better to use
container_of() to prevent future breakage.

11 years agoworkqueue: avoid recursion in run_workqueue()
Lai Jiangshan [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:58:24 +0000]
workqueue: avoid recursion in run_workqueue()

1) lockdep will complain when run_workqueue() performs recursion.

2) The recursive implementation of run_workqueue() means that
   flush_workqueue() and its documentation are inconsistent.  This may
   hide deadlocks and other bugs.

3) The recursion in run_workqueue() will poison cwq->current_work, but
   flush_work() and __cancel_work_timer(), etcetera need a reliable
   cwq->current_work.
