13 years ago[PATCH] Fix the size limit of compat space msgsize
suzuki [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:37:48 +0000]
[PATCH] Fix the size limit of compat space msgsize

Currently we allocate 64k space on the user stack and use it the msgbuf for
sys_{msgrcv,msgsnd} for compat and the results are later copied in user [
by copy_in_user].  This patch introduces helper routines for
sys_{msgrcv,msgsnd} as below:

do_msgsnd() : Accepts the mtype and user space ptr to the buffer along with
the msqid and msgflg.

do_msgrcv() : Accepts a kernel space ptr to mtype and a userspace ptr to
the buffer.  The mtype has to be copied back the user space msgbuf by the
caller.

These changes avoid the need to allocate the msgsize on the userspace (
thus removing the size limt ) and the overhead of an extra copy_in_user().

13 years ago[PATCH] PCEngines WRAP LED Support
Kristian Kielhofner [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:37:28 +0000]
[PATCH] PCEngines WRAP LED Support

A driver for the PCEngines WRAP boards (http://www.pcengines.ch), which are
very similar to the Soekris net4801 (same NS SC1100 geode reference
design).

The LEDs on the WRAP are on different GPIO lines and I have modified and
copied the net48xx error led support for this.  It also includes support
for an "extra" led (in addition to error).  The three LEDs on the WRAP are
at GPIO lines 2,3,18 (WRAP LEDs from left to right).  This driver gives
access to the second and third LEDs by twiddling GPIO lines 3 & 18.

Because these boards are so similar to the net48xx, I basically sed-ed that
driver to form the basis for leds-wrap.c.  The only changes from
leds-net48xx.c are:

 - #define WRAP_EXTRA_LED_GPIO

 - name changes

 - duplicate relevant sections to provide support for the "extra" led

 - reverse the various *_led_set values.  The WRAP is "backwards" from the
   net48xx, and these needed to be updated for that.

[PATCH] HZ: 300Hz support

Fix two things.  Firstly the unit is "Hz" not "HZ".  Secondly it is useful
to have 300Hz support when doing multimedia work.  250 is fine for us in
Europe but the US frame rate is 30fps (29.99 blah for pedants).  300 gives
us a tick divisible by both 25 and 30, and for interlace work 50 and 60.
It's also giving similar performance to 250Hz.

I'd argue we should remove 250 and add 300, but that might be excess
disruption for now.

Steve Grubb's fzfuzzer tool (http://people.redhat.com/sgrubb/files/
fsfuzzer-0.6.tar.gz) generates corrupt Cramfs filesystems which cause
Cramfs to kernel oops in cramfs_uncompress_block().  The cause of the oops
is an unchecked corrupted block length field read by cramfs_readpage().

This patch adds a sanity check to cramfs_readpage() which checks that the
block length field is sensible.  The (PAGE_CACHE_SIZE << 1) size check is
intentional, even though the uncompressed data is not going to be larger
than PAGE_CACHE_SIZE, gzip sometimes generates compressed data larger than
the original source data.  Mkcramfs checks that the compressed size is
always less than or equal to PAGE_CACHE_SIZE << 1.  Of course Cramfs could
use the original uncompressed data in this case, but it doesn't.

cpus on a large system.  The kernel isolcpus code would not need any
changing to use this feature.  To use it, the change would be in the
command line format for 'isolcpus='
Format:
<cpu number>,...,<cpu number>
or

[PATCH] Correct misc_register return code handling in several drivers

Clean up several code points in which the return code from misc_register is
not handled properly.

Several modules failed to deregister various hooks when misc_register fails,
and this patch cleans them up.  Also there are a few modules that legitimately
don't care about the failure status of misc register.  These drivers however
unilaterally call misc_deregister on module unload.

Since misc_register doesn't initialize the list_head in the init_routine if it
fails, the deregister operation is at risk for oopsing when list_del is
called.  The initial solution was to manually init the list in the miscdev
structure in each of those modules, but the consensus in this thread was to
consolodate and do that universally inside misc_register.

[PATCH] Exar quad port serial

This is on our "Envoy" boxes which we have, according to the documentation, an
"Exar ST16C554/554D Quad UART with 16-byte Fifo's".  The box also has two
other "on-board" serial ports and a modem chip.

The two on-board serial UARTs were being detected along with the first two
Exar UARTs.  The last two Exar UARTs were not showing up and neither was the
modem.

This patch was the only way I could the kernel to see beyond the standard four
serial ports and get all four of the Exar UARTs to show up.

Alexey Dobriyan [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:36:56 +0000]
[PATCH] Compile-time check re world-writeable module params

One of the mistakes a module_param() user can make is to supply default
value of module parameter as the last argument.  module_param() accepts
permissions instead.  If default value is, say, 3 (-------wx), parameter
becomes world-writeable.

So far, the only remedy was to apply grep(1) and read drivers submitted
to -mm. BTDT.

With this patch applied, compiler will finally do some job.

*) bounds checking on permissions
*) world-writeable bit checking on permissions
*) compile breakage if checks trigger

First version of this check (only "& 2" part) directly caught 4 out of 7
places during my last grep.

nla_put() in taskstat.c can fail only if the 'size' argument of alloc_skb()
was not right. This is a kernel bug, we should not hide it. So add 'BUG()'
on error path and check for 'na == NULL'.

So we can remove 'genlmsg_cancel()' calls and 'void *reply' (saves 227 bytes).

13 years ago[PATCH] taskstats: use nla_reserve() for reply assembling
Oleg Nesterov [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:36:54 +0000]
[PATCH] taskstats: use nla_reserve() for reply assembling

Currently taskstats_user_cmd()/taskstats_exit() do:

1) allocate stats
2) fill stats
3) make a temporary copy on stack (236 bytes)
4) copy that copy to skb
5) free stats

With the help of nla_reserve() we can operate on skb->data directly,
thus avoiding all these steps except 2).

So, before this patch:

// copy *stats to skb->data
int mk_reply(skb, ..., struct taskstats *stats);

fill_pid(stats);
mk_reply(skb, ..., stats);

After:
// return a pointer to skb->data
struct taskstats *mk_reply(skb, ...);

stat = mk_reply(skb, ...);
fill_pid(stats);

Shrinks taskatsks.o by 162 bytes.

A stupid benchmark (send one million TASKSTATS_CMD_ATTR_PID) shows the

real user sys
before:
4.02 0.06 3.96
4.02 0.04 3.98
4.02 0.04 3.97
after:
3.86 0.08 3.78
3.88 0.10 3.77
3.89 0.09 3.80

but this looks suspiciously good.

If there are no listeners, every task does unneeded kmem_cache alloc/free on
exit. We don't need listeners->sem for 'if (!list_empty())' check. Yes, we may
have a false positive, but this doesn't differ from the case when the listener
is unregistered after we drop the semaphore. So we don't need to do allocation
beforehand.

Roland McGrath [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:36:34 +0000]
[PATCH] Disable CLONE_CHILD_CLEARTID for abnormal exit

The CLONE_CHILD_CLEARTID flag is used by NPTL to have its threads
communicate via memory/futex when they exit, so pthread_join can
synchronize using a simple futex wait.  The word of user memory where NPTL
stores a thread's own TID is what it passes; this gets reset to zero at
thread exit.

It is not desireable to touch this user memory when threads are dying due
to a fatal signal.  A core dump is more usefully representative of the
dying program state if the threads live at the time of the crash have their
NPTL data structures unperturbed.  The userland expectation of
CLONE_CHILD_CLEARTID has only ever been that it works for a thread making
an _exit system call.

13 years ago[PATCH] handle ext4 directory corruption better
Eric Sandeen [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:36:28 +0000]
[PATCH] handle ext4 directory corruption better

I've been using Steve Grubb's purely evil "fsfuzzer" tool, at
http://people.redhat.com/sgrubb/files/fsfuzzer-0.4.tar.gz

Basically it makes a filesystem, splats some random bits over it, then
tries to mount it and do some simple filesystem actions.

At best, the filesystem catches the corruption gracefully.  At worst,
things spin out of control.

As you might guess, we found a couple places in ext4 where things spin out
of control :)

First, we had a corrupted directory that was never checked for
consistency...  it was corrupt, and pointed to another bad "entry" of
length 0.  The for() loop looped forever, since the length of
ext4_next_entry(de) was 0, and we kept looking at the same pointer over and
over and over and over...  I modeled this check and subsequent action on
what is done for other directory types in ext4_readdir...

(adding this check adds some computational expense; I am testing a followup
patch to reduce the number of times we check and re-check these directory
entries, in all cases.  Thanks for the idea, Andreas).

Next we had a root directory inode which had a corrupted size, claimed to
be > 200M on a 4M filesystem.  There was only really 1 block in the
directory, but because the size was so large, readdir kept coming back for

13 years ago[PATCH] handle ext3 directory corruption better
Eric Sandeen [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:36:26 +0000]
[PATCH] handle ext3 directory corruption better

I've been using Steve Grubb's purely evil "fsfuzzer" tool, at
http://people.redhat.com/sgrubb/files/fsfuzzer-0.4.tar.gz

Basically it makes a filesystem, splats some random bits over it, then
tries to mount it and do some simple filesystem actions.

At best, the filesystem catches the corruption gracefully.  At worst,
things spin out of control.

As you might guess, we found a couple places in ext3 where things spin out
of control :)

First, we had a corrupted directory that was never checked for
consistency...  it was corrupt, and pointed to another bad "entry" of
length 0.  The for() loop looped forever, since the length of
ext3_next_entry(de) was 0, and we kept looking at the same pointer over and
over and over and over...  I modeled this check and subsequent action on
what is done for other directory types in ext3_readdir...

(adding this check adds some computational expense; I am testing a followup
patch to reduce the number of times we check and re-check these directory
entries, in all cases.  Thanks for the idea, Andreas).

Next we had a root directory inode which had a corrupted size, claimed to
be > 200M on a 4M filesystem.  There was only really 1 block in the
directory, but because the size was so large, readdir kept coming back for
more, spewing thousands of printk's along the way.

Per Andreas' suggestion, if we're in this read error condition and we're
trying to read an offset which is greater than i_blocks worth of bytes,
stop trying, and break out of the loop.

With these two changes fsfuzz test survives quite well on ext3.

Move ide_remove_proc_entries() out from under ide_lock; there is nothing
that indicates that this is needed.

In specific, the call to ide_add_proc_entries() is unprotected, and there
is nothing else in the file using the respective ->proc fields. Also the
lock order around destroy_proc_ide_interface() suggests this.

Alan sayeth:

  proc_ide_write_settings walks the setting list under ide_setting_sem, read
  ditto.  remove_proc_entry is doing proc side housekeeping.

  going on.

Suzuki K P [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:36:10 +0000]
[PATCH] fix reiserfs bad path release panic

One of our test team hit a reiserfs_panic while running fsstress tests on
2.6.19-rc1.  The message looks like :

  REISERFS: panic(device Null superblock):

  fs/reiserfs/stree.c:397:reiserfs_check_path: path not properly relsed.

The backtrace looked :

syscall_exit+0x0/0x4

Upon debugging I found that the restart_transaction was not releasing
the path if the th->refcount was > 1.

/*static*/
int restart_transaction(struct reiserfs_transaction_handle *th,
                            struct inode *inode, struct path *path)
{
[...]

         /* we cannot restart while nested */
         if (th->t_refcount > 1) { <<- Path is not released in this case!
                 return 0;
         }

         pathrelse(path); <<- Path released here.
[...]

This could happen in such a situation :

In reiserfs/inode.c: reiserfs_get_block() ::

      if (repeat == NO_DISK_SPACE || repeat == QUOTA_EXCEEDED) {
          /* restart the transaction to give the journal a chance to free
           ** some blocks.  releases the path, so we have to go back to
           ** research if we succeed on the second try
           */
          SB_JOURNAL(inode->i_sb)->j_next_async_flush = 1;

        -->>  retval = restart_transaction(th, inode, &path); <<--

  We are supposed to release the path, no matter we succeed or fail. But
if the th->refcount is > 1, the path is still valid. And,

          if (retval)
                   goto failure;
          repeat =
              _allocate_block(th, block, inode,
                             &allocated_block_nr, NULL, create);

If the above allocate_block fails with NO_DISK_SPACE or QUOTA_EXCEEDED,
we would have path which is not released.

         if (repeat != NO_DISK_SPACE && repeat != QUOTA_EXCEEDED) {
                   goto research;
         }
         if (repeat == QUOTA_EXCEEDED)
                   retval = -EDQUOT;
         else
                   retval = -ENOSPC;
         goto failure;
[...]

       failure:
[...]
         reiserfs_check_path(&path); << Panics here !

Attached here is a patch which could fix the issue.

fix reiserfs/inode.c : restart_transaction() to release the path in all
cases.

The restart_transaction() doesn't release the path when the the journal
handle has a refcount > 1.  This would trigger a reiserfs_panic() if we
encounter an -ENOSPC / -EDQUOT in reiserfs_get_block().

13 years ago[PATCH] fuse: add support for block device based filesystems
Miklos Szeredi [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:35:44 +0000]
[PATCH] fuse: add support for block device based filesystems

I never intended this, but people started using fuse to implement block device
based "real" filesystems (ntfs-3g, zfs).

The following four patches add better support for these kinds of filesystems.
Unlike "normal" fuse filesystems, using this feature should require superuser
privileges (enforced by the fusermount utility).

Thanks to Szabolcs Szakacsits for the input and testing.

This patch adds a 'fuseblk' filesystem type, which is only different from the
'fuse' filesystem type in how the 'dev_name' mount argument is interpreted.

This patch addresses incorrect symbol type information reported through
/proc/kallsyms.  A lowercase character should designate the symbol as local
(or non-exported).  An uppercase character should designate the symbol as
global (or external).

Without this patch, some non-exported symbols are incorrectly assigned an
upper-case designation in /proc/kallsyms.  This patch corrects this
condition by converting non-exported symbols types to lower case when

Suzuki K P [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:35:16 +0000]
[PATCH] Fix check_partition routines

check_partition() stops its probe once it hits an I/O error from the
partition checkers.  This would prevent the actual partition checker
getting a chance to verify the partition.

So this patch lets check_partition() continue probing untill it hits a
success while recording the I/O error which might have been reported by the
checking routines.

Also, it does some cleanup of the partition methods for ibm, atari and
amiga to return -1 upon hitting an I/O error.

13 years ago[PATCH] fix rescan_partitions to return errors properly
Suzuki Kp [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:35:14 +0000]
[PATCH] fix rescan_partitions to return errors properly

The current rescan_partition implementation ignores the errors that comes from
the lower layer.  It reports success for unknown partitions as well as I/O
error cases while reading the partition information.

The unknown partition is not (and will not be) considered as an error in the
kernel, since there are legal users of it (e.g, members of a RAID5 MD Device
or a new disk which is not partitioned at all ).  Changing this behaviour
would scare the user about a serious problem with their disk and is not
recommended.  Thus for both "unknown partitions" to the Linux (eg., DEC
VMS,Novell Netware) and the legal users of NULL partition, would still be
reported as "SUCCESS".

The patch attached here, scares the user about something which he does need to
worry about.  i.e, returning -EIO on disk I/O errors while reading the
partition information.
