add-vmcore: add nodemask_t's size and NR_FREE_PAGES's value to vmcoreinfo_data

[2/3] Add nodemask_t's size and NR_FREE_PAGES's value to vmcoreinfo_data.
  The dump filetering command 'makedumpfile'(v1.1.6 or before) had assumed
  the above values, and it was not good from the reliability viewpoint.
  So makedumpfile v1.2.0 came to need these values and I created the patch
  to let the kernel output them.

Ken'ichi Ohmichi [Wed, 17 Oct 2007 06:27:27 +0000]
Add vmcoreinfo

This patch set frees the restriction that makedumpfile users should install a
vmlinux file (including the debugging information) into each system.

makedumpfile command is the dump filtering feature for kdump.  It creates a
small dumpfile by filtering unnecessary pages for the analysis.  To
distinguish unnecessary pages, it needs a vmlinux file including the debugging
information.  These days, the debugging package becomes a huge file, and it is
hard to install it into each system.

To solve the problem, kdump developers discussed it at lkml and kexec-ml.  As
the result, we reached the conclusion that necessary information for dump
filtering (called "vmcoreinfo") should be embedded into the first kernel file
and it should be accessed through /proc/vmcore during the second kernel.
(http://www.uwsg.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/0707.0/1806.html)

Dan Aloni created the patch set for the above implementation.
(http://www.uwsg.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/0707.1/1053.html)

And I updated it for multi architectures and memory models.

* If there might be a fatal signal pending on multiple
* threads, make sure we take it before changing the action.

I think this is not needed. We should only worry about SIGNAL_GROUP_EXIT case,

There is no any reason to do recalc_sigpending() after changing ->sighand.

rcu_assign_pointer() provides a necessary barrier, and if another process

Fix f_version type: should be u64 instead of unsigned long

Fix f_version type: should be u64 instead of long

There is a type inconsistency between struct inode i_version and struct file
f_version.

fs.h:

struct inode
  u64                     i_version;

and

struct file
  unsigned long           f_version;

Users do:

fs/ext3/dir.c:

if (filp->f_version != inode->i_version) {

So why isn't f_version a u64 ? It becomes a problem if versions gets
higher than 2^32 and we are on an architecture where longs are 32 bits.

This patch changes the f_version type to u64, and updates the users accordingly.

It applies to 2.6.23-rc2-mm2.

operation that will not initiate disk I/O is IOCB_CMD_NOOP.  However,
this command isn't even wired up!

Given that it doesn't work, and hasn't for *years*, I'm going to

11 years agoUse ERESTART_RESTARTBLOCK if poll() is interrupted by a signal
Chris Wright [Wed, 17 Oct 2007 06:27:18 +0000]
Use ERESTART_RESTARTBLOCK if poll() is interrupted by a signal

Lomesh reported poll returning EINTR during suspend/resume cycle.  This is
caused by the STOP/CONT cycle that the freezer uses, generating a pending
signal for what in effect is an ignored signal.  In general poll is a
little eager in returning EINTR, when it could try not bother userspace and
simply restart the syscall.  Both select and ppoll do use ERESTARTNOHAND to
restart the syscall.  Oleg points out that simply using ERESTARTNOHAND will
cause poll to restart with original timeout value.  which could ultimately
lead to process never returning to userspace.  Instead use
ERESTART_RESTARTBLOCK, and restart poll with updated timeout value.
Inspired by Manfred's use ERESTARTNOHAND in poll patch.

11 years agofix execute checking in permission()
Miklos Szeredi [Wed, 17 Oct 2007 06:27:08 +0000]
fix execute checking in permission()

permission() checks that MAY_EXEC is only allowed on regular files if at least
one execute bit is set in the file mode.

generic_permission() already ensures this, so the extra check in permission()
is superfluous.

If the filesystem defines it's own ->permission() the check may still be
needed.  In this case move it after ->permission().  This is needed because
filesystems such as FUSE may need to refresh the inode attributes before
checking permissions.

This check should be moved inside ->permission(), but that's another story.

unicode diacritics support

There have been issues with non-latin1 diacritics and unicode.
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=7746

Git 759448f459234bfcf34b82471f0dba77a9aca498 `Kernel utf-8 handling'
partly resolved it by adding conversion between diacritics and
unicode. The patch below goes further by just turning diacritics into
unicode, hence providing better future support. The kbd support can be
fetched from
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/attachment.cgi?id=12313

This was tested in all of latin1, latin9, latin2 and unicode with french
and czech dead keys.

Turn the kernel accent_table into unicode, and extend ioctls KDGKBDIACR
and KDSKBDIACR into their equivalents KDGKBDIACRUC and KDSKBDIACR.

New function int conv_uni_to_8bit(u32 uni) for converting unicode into 8bit
_input_.  No, we don't want to store the translation, as it is potentially
sparse and large.

This adds the MMF_DUMP_ELF_HEADERS option to /proc/pid/coredump_filter.
This dumps the first page (only) of a private file mapping if it appears to
be a mapping of an ELF file.  Including these pages in the core dump may
give sufficient identifying information to associate the original DSO and
executable file images and their debugging information with a core file in
a generic way just from its contents (e.g.  when those binaries were built
with ld --build-id).  I expect this to become the default behavior
eventually.  Existing versions of gdb can be confused by the core dumps it
creates, so it won't enabled by default for some time to come.  Soon many
people will have systems with a gdb that handle these dumps, so they can
arrange to set the bit at boot and have it inherited system-wide.

This also cleans up the checking of the MMF_DUMP_* flag bits, which did not
need to be using atomic macros.

11 years agowait_task_zombie: fix 2/3 races vs forget_original_parent()
Oleg Nesterov [Wed, 17 Oct 2007 06:26:58 +0000]
wait_task_zombie: fix 2/3 races vs forget_original_parent()

Two threads, T1 and T2.  T2 ptraces P, and P is not a child of ptracer's
thread group.  P exits and goes to TASK_ZOMBIE.

T1 does wait_task_zombie(P):

P->exit_state = TASK_DEAD;
...
read_unlock(&tasklist_lock);

T2 does exit(), takes tasklist,
forget_original_parent() does
__ptrace_unlink(P) but doesn't
call do_notify_parent(P) because
p->exit_state == EXIT_DEAD.

Now, P is not visible to our process: __ptrace_unlink() removed it from
->children. We should send notification to P->parent and release P if and
only if SIGCHLD is ignored.

And we have 3 bugs:

1. P->parent does do_wait() and gets -ECHILD (P is on ->parent->children,
   but its state is TASK_DEAD).

2. // wait_task_zombie() continues

if (put_user(...)) {
// TODO: is this safe?
p->exit_state = EXIT_ZOMBIE;
return;
}

   we return without notification/release, task_struct leaked.

   Solution: ignore -EFAULT and proceed. It is an application's bug if
   we can't fill infop/stat_addr (in case of VM_FAULT_OOM we have much
   more problems).

3. // wait_task_zombie() continues

if (p->real_parent != p->parent) {
// Not taken, it was untraced'ed
...
}

release_task(p);

   we released the task which we shouldn't.

   Solution: check ->real_parent != ->parent before, under tasklist_lock,
   but use ptrace_unlink() instead of __ptrace_unlink() to check ->ptrace.

This patch hopefully solves 2 and 3, the 1st bug will be fixed later, we need
some cleanups in forget_original_parent/reparent_thread.

However, the first race is very unlikely and not critical, so I hope it makes
sense to fix 1 and 2 for now.

4. Small cleanup: don't "restore" EXIT_ZOMBIE unless we know we are not going
   to realease the child.

Oleg Nesterov [Wed, 17 Oct 2007 06:26:49 +0000]
handle the multi-threaded init's exit() properly

With or without this patch, multi-threaded init's are not fully supported,
but do_exit() is completely wrong.  This becomes a real problem when we
support pid namespaces.

1. do_exit() panics when the main thread of /sbin/init exits. It should not
   until the whole thread group exits. Move the code below, under the
   "if (group_dead)" check.

   Note: this means that forget_original_parent() can use an already dead
   child_reaper()'s task_struct. This is OK for /sbin/init because

    - do_wait() from alive sub-thread still can reap a zombie, we iterate
      over all sub-thread's ->children lists

    - do_notify_parent() will wakeup some alive sub-thread because it sends
      the group-wide signal

   However, we should remove choose_new_parent()->BUG_ON(reaper->exit_state)
   for this.

2. We are playing games with ->nsproxy->pid_ns. This code is bogus today, and
   it has to be changed anyway when we really support pid namespaces, just
   remove it.

11 years agoDeprecate a.out ELF interpreters
Andi Kleen [Wed, 17 Oct 2007 06:26:48 +0000]
Deprecate a.out ELF interpreters

The Linux ELF loader is quite complicated and messy code (that could
probably need a rewrite, but that's a different chapter).  One particular
messy part in it is the support for non ELF a.out ld.sos.  This was
originally added to make transition from a.out to ELF easier because an
a.out ELF ld.so could be still build using an older a.out toolkit.  But by
now that should be fully obsolete and removing it would clean up
binfmt_elf.c up a bit.

I propose to deprecate this support and remove for 2.6.25.

Drawback is that someone still runs their system with a.out ld.so
they would need to update the ld.so when updating to a new kernel.

This patch just adds an entry to the deprecation file and a printk
warning users.

11 years agocore_pattern: ignore RLIMIT_CORE if core_pattern is a pipe
Neil Horman [Wed, 17 Oct 2007 06:26:34 +0000]
core_pattern: ignore RLIMIT_CORE if core_pattern is a pipe

For some time /proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern has been able to set its output
destination as a pipe, allowing a user space helper to receive and
intellegently process a core.  This infrastructure however has some
shortcommings which can be enhanced.  Specifically:

1) The coredump code in the kernel should ignore RLIMIT_CORE limitation
   when core_pattern is a pipe, since file system resources are not being
   consumed in this case, unless the user application wishes to save the core,
   at which point the app is restricted by usual file system limits and
   restrictions.

2) The core_pattern code should be able to parse and pass options to the
   user space helper as an argv array.  The real core limit of the uid of the
   crashing proces should also be passable to the user space helper (since it
   is overridden to zero when called).

3) Some miscellaneous bugs need to be cleaned up (specifically the
   recognition of a recursive core dump, should the user mode helper itself
   crash.  Also, the core dump code in the kernel should not wait for the user
   mode helper to exit, since the same context is responsible for writing to
   the pipe, and a read of the pipe by the user mode helper will result in a
   deadlock.

This patch:

Remove the check of RLIMIT_CORE if core_pattern is a pipe.  In the event that
core_pattern is a pipe, the entire core will be fed to the user mode helper.

references while reporting per-irq stats.  Since we will not have the same
performance penalty of bringing in remote cpu cachelines while reporting
per-irq stats anymore, we can now afford to be consistent and report this
statistic on all arches, all configs.

akpm: affects ia64, alpha and ppc64, mainly.

Kiran earlier said:

Read to /proc/stat takes:
Plain:  2.622832
With speedup patch: 0.013194
With the per-irq stats commented out: 0.008124

So the performance problems which originally caused those architectures to
disable this statistic should now be fixed up.

11 years agoRemove "unsafe" from module struct
Rusty Russell [Wed, 17 Oct 2007 06:26:27 +0000]
Remove "unsafe" from module struct

Adrian Bunk points out that "unsafe" was used to mark modules touched by
the deprecated MOD_INC_USE_COUNT interface, which has long gone.  It's time
to remove the member from the module structure, as well.

If you want a module which can't unload, don't register an exit function.

(Vlad Yasevich says SCTP is now safe to unload, so just remove the
__unsafe there).

11 years agoext2: show all mount options
Miklos Szeredi [Wed, 17 Oct 2007 06:26:26 +0000]
ext2: show all mount options

Using mtab is problematic for various reasons, one of them is that
unprivileged mounts won't turn up in there.  So we want to get rid of it, and
use /proc/mounts instead.

But most filesystems are lazy, and are not showing all mount options.  Which
means, that without mtab, the user won't be able to see some or all of the
options.

It would be nice if the generic code could remember the mount options, and
show them without the need to add extra code to filesystems.  But this is not
easy, because different filesystems handle mount options given options, and
not tough the rest.  This is not taken into account by mount(8) either, so
/etc/mtab will be broken in this case.

This series fixes up ->show_options() in ext[234].

Fengguang Wu [Wed, 17 Oct 2007 06:26:25 +0000]
convert ill defined log2() to ilog2()

It's *wrong* to have
#define log2(n) ffz(~(n))
It should be *reversed*:
#define log2(n) flz(~(n))
or
#define log2(n) fls(n)
or just use
ilog2(n) defined in linux/log2.h.

This patch follows the last solution, recommended by Andrew Morton.

fs/proc/mmu.c: headers butchery

fs/proc/mmu.c consists of only one function which uses only:
1) struct vmalloc_info *
2) struct vm_struct *
3) struct vmalloc_info
4) vmlist
5) VMALLOC_TOTAL, VMALLOC_START, VMALLOC_END
6) read_lock, read_unlock
7) vmlist_lock
8) struct vm_struct

This gives us linux/spinlock.h, asm/pgtable.h, "internal.h", linux/vmalloc.h.
asm/pgtable.h uses PKMAP_BASE on i386, for which asm/highmem.h is needed.
But, linux/highmem.h is actually used to make it compile everywhere.
I'll deal later with this particular i386 surprise.

With this patch "struct poll_list *head" always points to on-stack stack_pps,
so we can remove all "is it on-stack" and "was it initialized" checks.

Also, move poll_initwait/poll_freewait and -EINTR detection closer to the
