[PATCH] taskstats: cleanup ->signal->stats allocation

Allocate ->signal->stats on demand in taskstats_exit(), this allows us to
remove taskstats_tgid_alloc() (the last non-trivial inline) from taskstat's

[PATCH] taskstats: cleanup do_exit() path

do_exit:
taskstats_exit_alloc()
...
taskstats_exit_send()
taskstats_exit_free()

I think this is not good, let it be a single function exported to the core
kernel, taskstats_exit(), which does alloc + send + free itself.

[PATCH] taskstats_exit_alloc: optimize/simplify

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.

12 years ago[PATCH] Disable CLONE_CHILD_CLEARTID for abnormal exit
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.

This problem was identified by Ernie Petrides <petrides@redhat.com>.

12 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
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 ext4.

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.

Jeff noted that the via driver returned an error to an unsigned int in a
a case where errors are not permitted. Move the check down earlier so we
can handle it properly. Not as pretty but it works this way and avoids
hacking up ugly stuff in the legacy ide core.

12 years ago[PATCH] fix reiserfs bad path release panic
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):
  reiserfs[5676]: assertion !(p->path_length != 1 ) failed at
  fs/reiserfs/stree.c:397:reiserfs_check_path: path not properly relsed.

The backtrace looked :

  kernel BUG in reiserfs_panic at fs/reiserfs/prints.c:361!

.sys_write+0x4c/0x8c

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().

[PATCH] file: kill unnecessary timer in fdtable_defer

free_fdtable_rc() schedules timer to reschedule fddef->wq if

the target work is executed at least once after the scheduling regardless
of its return value.  0 return simply means that the work was already

[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.

[PATCH] serial uartlite driver

Add a driver for the Xilinx uartlite serial controller used in boards with
the PPC405 core in the Xilinx V2P/V4 fpgas.

The hardware is very simple (baudrate/start/stopbits fixed and no break
support).  See the datasheet for details:

http://www.xilinx.com/bvdocs/ipcenter/data_sheet/opb_uartlite.pdf

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.

12 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.

[PATCH] swsusp: Support i386 systems with PAE or without PSE

Make swsusp support i386 systems with PAE or without PSE.

This is done by creating temporary page tables located in resume-safe page
frames before the suspend image is restored in the same way as x86_64 does
it.

[PATCH] swsusp: thaw userspace and kernel space separately

Modify process thawing so that we can thaw kernel space without thawing
userspace, and thaw kernelspace first.  This will be useful in later
patches, where I intend to get swsusp thawing kernel threads only before
seeking to free memory.

[PATCH] swsusp: quieten Freezer if !CONFIG_PM_DEBUG

The freezer currently prints an '=' for every process that is frozen.  This
is pretty pointless, as the equals sign says nothing about which process is
frozen, and makes logs look messier (especially if there were a large
number of processes running).  All we really need to know is that we
started trying to freeze processes and what processes (if any) failed to
freeze, or that we succeeded.

[PATCH] swsusp: fix platform mode

At some point after 2.6.13, in-kernel software suspend got "incomplete" for
the so-called "platform" mode.  pm_ops->prepare() is never called.  A
visible sign of this is the "moon" light on thinkpads not flashing during
suspend.  Fix by readding the pm_ops->prepare call during suspend.

12 years ago[PATCH] swsusp: Improve handling of highmem
Rafael J. Wysocki [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:34:18 +0000]
[PATCH] swsusp: Improve handling of highmem

Currently swsusp saves the contents of highmem pages by copying them to the
normal zone which is quite inefficient (eg.  it requires two normal pages
to be used for saving one highmem page).  This may be improved by using
highmem for saving the contents of saveable highmem pages.

Namely, during the suspend phase of the suspend-resume cycle we try to
allocate as many free highmem pages as there are saveable highmem pages.
If there are not enough highmem image pages to store the contents of all of
the saveable highmem pages, some of them will be stored in the "normal"
memory.  Next, we allocate as many free "normal" pages as needed to store
the (remaining) image data.  We use a memory bitmap to mark the allocated
free pages (ie.  highmem as well as "normal" image pages).

Now, we use another memory bitmap to mark all of the saveable pages
(highmem as well as "normal") and the contents of the saveable pages are
copied into the image pages.  Then, the second bitmap is used to save the
pfns corresponding to the saveable pages and the first one is used to save
their data.

During the resume phase the pfns of the pages that were saveable during the
suspend are loaded from the image and used to mark the "unsafe" page
frames.  Next, we try to allocate as many free highmem page frames as to
load all of the image data that had been in the highmem before the suspend
and we allocate so many free "normal" page frames that the total number of
allocated free pages (highmem and "normal") is equal to the size of the
image.  While doing this we have to make sure that there will be some extra
free "normal" and "safe" page frames for two lists of PBEs constructed
later.

Now, the image data are loaded, if possible, into their "original" page
frames.  The image data that cannot be written into their "original" page
frames are loaded into "safe" page frames and their "original" kernel
virtual addresses, as well as the addresses of the "safe" pages containing
their copies, are stored in one of two lists of PBEs.

One list of PBEs is for the copies of "normal" suspend pages (ie.  "normal"
pages that were saveable during the suspend) and it is used in the same way
as previously (ie.  by the architecture-dependent parts of swsusp).  The
other list of PBEs is for the copies of highmem suspend pages.  The pages
in this list are restored (in a reversible way) right before the
arch-dependent code is called.

[PATCH] swsusp: add ioctl for swap files support

To be able to use swap files as suspend storage from the userland suspend
tools we need an additional ioctl() that will allow us to provide the kernel
with both the swap header's offset and the identification of the resume
partition.

The new ioctl() should be regarded as a replacement for the
SNAPSHOT_SET_SWAP_FILE ioctl() that from now on will be considered as
obsolete, but has to stay for backwards compatibility of the interface.
