aio: check for multiplication overflow in do_io_submit

Tavis Ormandy pointed out that do_io_submit does not do proper bounds
checking on the passed-in iocb array:

       if (unlikely(nr < 0))
               return -EINVAL;

       if (unlikely(!access_ok(VERIFY_READ, iocbpp, (nr*sizeof(iocbpp)))))
               return -EFAULT;                      ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

The attached patch checks for overflow, and if it is detected, the
number of iocbs submitted is scaled down to a number that will fit in
the long.  This is an ok thing to do, as sys_io_submit is documented as
returning the number of iocbs submitted, so callers should handle a
return value of less than the 'nr' argument passed in.

HID: fix hiddev's use of usb_find_interface

My macbook infrared remote control was broken by commit
bd25f4dd6972755579d0ea50d1a5ace2e9b00d1a ("HID: hiddev: use
usb_find_interface, get rid of BKL").

This device appears in dmesg as:
apple 0003:05AC:8242.0001: hiddev0,hidraw0: USB HID v1.11 Device
[Apple Computer, Inc. IR Receiver] on usb-0000:00:1d.2-1/input0

It stopped working as lircd was getting ENODEV when opening /dev/usb/hiddev0.

AFAICS hiddev_driver is a dummy driver so usb_find_interface(&hiddev_driver)
does not find anything.

The device is associated with the usbhid driver, so let's do
usb_find_interface(&hid_driver) instead.

sched: Improve latencies under load by decreasing minimum scheduling granularity

Mathieu reported bad latencies with make -j10 kind of kbuild
workloads - which is mostly caused by us scheduling with a
too coarse granularity.

Reduce the minimum granularity some more, to make sure we
can meet the latency target.

I got the following results (make -j10 kbuild load, average of 3
runs):

 vanilla:

  maximum latency: 38278.9 µs
  average latency:  7730.1 µs

 patched:

  maximum latency: 22702.1 µs
  average latency:  6684.8 µs

Mathieu also measured it:

|
| * wakeup-latency.c (SIGEV_THREAD) with make -j10
|
| - Mainline 2.6.35.2 kernel
|
| maximum latency: 45762.1 µs
| average latency: 7348.6 µs
|
| - With only Peter's smaller min_gran (shown below):
|
| maximum latency: 29100.6 µs
| average latency: 6684.1 µs

statfs() gives ESTALE error

Hi,

An NFS client executes a statfs("file", &buff) call.
"file" exists / existed, the client has read / written it,
but it has already closed it.

user_path(pathname, &path) looks up "file" successfully in the
directory-cache  and restarts the aging timer of the directory-entry.
Even if "file" has already been removed from the server, because the
lookupcache=positive option I use, keeps the entries valid for a while.

nfs_statfs() returns ESTALE if "file" has already been removed from the
server.

If the user application repeats the statfs("file", &buff) call, we
are stuck: "file" remains young forever in the directory-cache.

Remove incorrect do_vfs_lock message

The do_vfs_lock function on fs/nfs/file.c is only called if NLM is
not being used, via the -onolock mount option. Therefore it cannot
really be "out of sync with lock manager" when the local locking
function called returns an error, as there will be no corresponding
call to the NLM. For details, simply check the if/else on do_setlk
and do_unlk on fs/nfs/file.c.

Rafael J. Wysocki [Sat, 11 Sep 2010 18:58:27 +0000]
PM / Hibernate: Avoid hitting OOM during preallocation of memory

There is a problem in hibernate_preallocate_memory() that it calls
preallocate_image_memory() with an argument that may be greater than
the total number of available non-highmem memory pages.  If that's
the case, the OOM condition is guaranteed to trigger, which in turn
can cause significant slowdown to occur during hibernation.

To avoid that, make preallocate_image_memory() adjust its argument
before calling preallocate_image_pages(), so that the total number of
saveable non-highem pages left is not less than the minimum size of
a hibernation image.  Change hibernate_preallocate_memory() to try to
allocate from highmem if the number of pages allocated by
preallocate_image_memory() is too low.

Modify free_unnecessary_pages() to take all possible memory
allocation patterns into account.

Dave Chinner [Wed, 8 Sep 2010 09:00:22 +0000]
xfs: log IO completion workqueue is a high priority queue

The workqueue implementation in 2.6.36-rcX has changed, resulting
in the workqueues no longer having dedicated threads for work
processing. This has caused severe livelocks under heavy parallel
create workloads because the log IO completions have been getting
held up behind metadata IO completions.  Hence log commits would
stall, memory allocation would stall because pages could not be
cleaned, and lock contention on the AIL during inode IO completion
processing was being seen to slow everything down even further.

By making the log Io completion workqueue a high priority workqueue,
they are queued ahead of all data/metadata IO completions and
processed before the data/metadata completions. Hence the log never
gets stalled, and operations needed to clean memory can continue as
quickly as possible. This avoids the livelock conditions and allos
the system to keep running under heavy load as per normal.

execve: make responsive to SIGKILL with large arguments

An execve with a very large total of argument/environment strings
can take a really long time in the execve system call.  It runs
uninterruptibly to count and copy all the strings.  This change
makes it abort the exec quickly if sent a SIGKILL.

Note that this is the conservative change, to interrupt only for
SIGKILL, by using fatal_signal_pending().  It would be perfectly
correct semantics to let any signal interrupt the string-copying in
execve, i.e. use signal_pending() instead of fatal_signal_pending().
We'll save that change for later, since it could have user-visible
consequences, such as having a timer set too quickly make it so that
an execve can never complete, though it always happened to work before.

execve: improve interactivity with large arguments

This adds a preemption point during the copying of the argument and
environment strings for execve, in copy_strings().  There is already
a preemption point in the count() loop, so this doesn't add any new
points in the abstract sense.

When the total argument+environment strings are very large, the time
spent copying them can be much more than a normal user time slice.
So this change improves the interactivity of the rest of the system

setup_arg_pages: diagnose excessive argument size

The CONFIG_STACK_GROWSDOWN variant of setup_arg_pages() does not
check the size of the argument/environment area on the stack.
When it is unworkably large, shift_arg_pages() hits its BUG_ON.
This is exploitable with a very large RLIMIT_STACK limit, to
create a crash pretty easily.

Check that the initial stack is not too large to make it possible
to map in any executable.  We're not checking that the actual
executable (or intepreter, for binfmt_elf) will fit.  So those
mappings might clobber part of the initial stack mapping.  But

KEYS: Fix bug in keyctl_session_to_parent() if parent has no session keyring

Fix a bug in keyctl_session_to_parent() whereby it tries to check the ownership
of the parent process's session keyring whether or not the parent has a session
keyring [CVE-2010-2960].

This results in the following oops:

If the system is using pam_keyinit then it mostly protected against this as all

by pam_keyinit during the log in procedure.

To test this, pam_keyinit calls need to be commented out in /etc/pam.d/.

block: Range check cpu in blk_cpu_to_group

While testing CPU DLPAR, the following problem was discovered.
We were DLPAR removing the first CPU, which in this case was
logical CPUs 0-3. CPUs 0-2 were already marked offline and
we were in the process of offlining CPU 3. After marking
the CPU inactive and offline in cpu_disable, but before the
cpu was completely idle (cpu_die), we ended up in __make_request
on CPU 3. There we looked at the topology map to see which CPU
to complete the I/O on and found no CPUs in the cpu_sibling_map.
This resulted in the block layer setting the completion cpu
to be NR_CPUS, which then caused an oops when we tried to
complete the I/O.

Fix this by sanity checking the value we return from blk_cpu_to_group
to be a valid cpu value.

ipheth: remove incorrect devtype to WWAN

The 'wwan' devtype is meant for devices that require preconfiguration
and *every* time setup before the ethernet interface can be used, like
cellular modems which require a series of setup commands on serial ports
or other mechanisms before the ethernet interface will handle packets.

As ipheth only requires one-per-hotplug pairing setup with no
preconfiguration (like APN, phone #, etc) and the network interface is
usable at any time after that initial setup, remove the incorrect

9 years agomm: page allocator: drain per-cpu lists after direct reclaim allocation fails
Mel Gorman [Thu, 9 Sep 2010 23:38:18 +0000]
mm: page allocator: drain per-cpu lists after direct reclaim allocation fails

When under significant memory pressure, a process enters direct reclaim
and immediately afterwards tries to allocate a page.  If it fails and no
further progress is made, it's possible the system will go OOM.  However,
on systems with large amounts of memory, it's possible that a significant
number of pages are on per-cpu lists and inaccessible to the calling
process.  This leads to a process entering direct reclaim more often than
it should increasing the pressure on the system and compounding the
problem.

This patch notes that if direct reclaim is making progress but allocations
are still failing that the system is already under heavy pressure.  In
this case, it drains the per-cpu lists and tries the allocation a second
time before continuing.

9 years agomm: page allocator: calculate a better estimate of NR_FREE_PAGES when memory is low...
Christoph Lameter [Thu, 9 Sep 2010 23:38:17 +0000]
mm: page allocator: calculate a better estimate of NR_FREE_PAGES when memory is low and kswapd is awake

Ordinarily watermark checks are based on the vmstat NR_FREE_PAGES as it is
cheaper than scanning a number of lists.  To avoid synchronization
overhead, counter deltas are maintained on a per-cpu basis and drained
both periodically and when the delta is above a threshold.  On large CPU
systems, the difference between the estimated and real value of
NR_FREE_PAGES can be very high.  If NR_FREE_PAGES is much higher than
number of real free page in buddy, the VM can allocate pages below min
watermark, at worst reducing the real number of pages to zero.  Even if
the OOM killer kills some victim for freeing memory, it may not free
memory if the exit path requires a new page resulting in livelock.

This patch introduces a zone_page_state_snapshot() function (courtesy of
Christoph) that takes a slightly more accurate view of an arbitrary vmstat
counter.  It is used to read NR_FREE_PAGES while kswapd is awake to avoid
the watermark being accidentally broken.  The estimate is not perfect and
may result in cache line bounces but is expected to be lighter than the
IPI calls necessary to continually drain the per-cpu counters while kswapd

9 years agomm: page allocator: update free page counters after pages are placed on the free...
Mel Gorman [Thu, 9 Sep 2010 23:38:16 +0000]
mm: page allocator: update free page counters after pages are placed on the free list

When allocating a page, the system uses NR_FREE_PAGES counters to
determine if watermarks would remain intact after the allocation was made.
This check is made without interrupts disabled or the zone lock held and
so is race-prone by nature.  Unfortunately, when pages are being freed in
batch, the counters are updated before the pages are added on the list.
During this window, the counters are misleading as the pages do not exist
yet.  When under significant pressure on systems with large numbers of
CPUs, it's possible for processes to make progress even though they should
have been stalled.  This is particularly problematic if a number of the
processes are using GFP_ATOMIC as the min watermark can be accidentally
breached and in extreme cases, the system can livelock.

This patch updates the counters after the pages have been added to the
list.  This makes the allocator more cautious with respect to preserving
the watermarks and mitigates livelock possibilities.

9 years agoswap: discard while swapping only if SWAP_FLAG_DISCARD
Hugh Dickins [Thu, 9 Sep 2010 23:38:11 +0000]
swap: discard while swapping only if SWAP_FLAG_DISCARD

Tests with recent firmware on Intel X25-M 80GB and OCZ Vertex 60GB SSDs
show a shift since I last tested in December: in part because of firmware
updates, in part because of the necessary move from barriers to awaiting
completion at the block layer.  While discard at swapon still shows as
slightly beneficial on both, discarding 1MB swap cluster when allocating
is now disadvanteous: adds 25% overhead on Intel, adds 230% on OCZ (YMMV).

Surrender: discard as presently implemented is more hindrance than help
for swap; but might prove useful on other devices, or with improvements.
So continue to do the discard at swapon, but make discard while swapping
conditional on a SWAP_FLAG_DISCARD to sys_swapon() (which has been using
only the lower 16 bits of int flags).

We can add a --discard or -d to swapon(8), and a "discard" to swap in
/etc/fstab: matching the mount option for btrfs, ext4, fat, gfs2, nilfs2.

9 years agoswap: prevent reuse during hibernation
Hugh Dickins [Thu, 9 Sep 2010 23:38:09 +0000]
swap: prevent reuse during hibernation

Move the hibernation check from scan_swap_map() into try_to_free_swap():
to catch not only the common case when hibernation's allocation itself
triggers swap reuse, but also the less likely case when concurrent page
reclaim (shrink_page_list) might happen to try_to_free_swap from a page.

Hibernation already clears __GFP_IO from the gfp_allowed_mask, to stop
reclaim from going to swap: check that to prevent swap reuse too.

9 years agoswap: revert special hibernation allocation

swap: revert special hibernation allocation

Please revert 2.6.36-rc commit d2997b1042ec150616c1963b5e5e919ffd0b0ebf
"hibernation: freeze swap at hibernation".  It complicated matters by
adding a second swap allocation path, just for hibernation; without in any
way fixing the issue that it was intended to address - page reclaim after
fixing the hibernation image might free swap from a page already imaged as
swapcache, letting its swap be reallocated to store a different page of
the image: resulting in data corruption if the imaged page were freed as
clean then swapped back in.  Pages freed to si->swap_map were still in
danger of being reallocated by the alternative allocation path.

I guess it inadvertently fixed slow SSD swap allocation for hibernation,
as reported by Nigel Cunningham: by missing out the discards that occur on
the usual swap allocation path; but that was unintentional, and needs a
separate fix.

bounce: call flush_dcache_page() after bounce_copy_vec()

I have been seeing problems on Tegra 2 (ARMv7 SMP) systems with HIGHMEM
enabled on 2.6.35 (plus some patches targetted at 2.6.36 to perform cache
maintenance lazily), and the root cause appears to be that the mm bouncing
code is calling flush_dcache_page before it copies the bounce buffer into
the bio.

The bounced page needs to be flushed after data is copied into it, to
ensure that architecture implementations can synchronize instruction and
data caches if necessary.

gpio: sx150x: correct and refine reset-on-probe behavior

Replace the arbitrary software-reset call from the device-probe
method, because:

- It is defective.  To work correctly, it should be two byte writes,
  not a single word write.  As it stands, it does nothing.

- Some devices with sx150x expanders installed have their NRESET pins
  ganged on the same line, so resetting one causes the others to reset -
  not a nice thing to do arbitrarily!

- The probe, usually taking place at boot, implies a recent hard-reset,
  so a software reset at this point is just a waste of energy anyway.

Therefore, make it optional, defaulting to off, as this will match the
common case of probing at powerup and also matches the current broken
no-op behavior.

9 years agomm: compaction: handle active and inactive fairly in too_many_isolated
Minchan Kim [Thu, 9 Sep 2010 23:38:00 +0000]
mm: compaction: handle active and inactive fairly in too_many_isolated

Iram reported that compaction's too_many_isolated() loops forever.
(http://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-mm/msg08123.html)

The meminfo when the situation happened was inactive anon is zero.  That's
because the system has no memory pressure until then.  While all anon
pages were in the active lru, compaction could select active lru as well
as inactive lru.  That's a different thing from vmscan's isolated.  So we
has been two too_many_isolated.

While compaction can isolate pages in both active and inactive, current
implementation of too_many_isolated only considers inactive.  It made
Iram's problem.

This patch handles active and inactive fairly.  That's because we can't
expect where from and how many compaction would isolated pages.

This patch changes (nr_isolated > nr_inactive) with
nr_isolated > (nr_active + nr_inactive) / 2.
