JFS: Fix multiple errors in metapage_releasepage

It looks like metapage_releasepage was making in invalid assumption that
the releasepage method would not be called on a dirty page.  Instead of
issuing a warning and releasing the metapage, it should return 0, indicating
that the private data for the page cannot be released.

I also realized that metapage_releasepage had the return code all wrong.  If
it is successful in releasing the private data, it should return 1, otherwise
it needs to return 0.

Lastly, there is no need to call wait_on_page_writeback, since
try_to_release_page will not call us with a page in writback state.

IB/ipath: fix null deref during rdma ops

The problem was that node A's sending thread, which handles sending RDMA
read response data, would write the trigger word, the last packet would
be sent, node B would send a new RDMA read request, node A's interrupt
handler would initialize s_rdma_sge, then node A's sending thread would
update s_rdma_sge.  This didn't happen very often naturally but was more
frequent with 1 byte RDMA reads.  Rather than adding more locking or
increasing the QP structure size and copying sge data, I modified the
copy routine to update the pointers before writing the trigger word to
avoid the update race.

[PATCH] tty_insert_flip_string_flags() license fix

We still don't have the tty layer licensing compatibility quite right.

tty_insert_flip_char() used to be inlined in include/linux/tty_flip.h.  It
is now out-of-lined and hence needs EXPORT_SYMBOL() to be back-compatible.

One known offender is the Intel Modem driver.

NeilBrown [Tue, 23 May 2006 05:35:26 +0000]
[PATCH] md: fix possible oops when starting a raid0 array

This loop that sets up the hash_table has problems.

Careful examination will show that the last time through, everything but
the first line is pointless.  This is because all it does is change 'cur'
and 'size' and neither of these are used after the loop.  This should ring
warning bells...  That last time through the loop,

        size += conf->strip_zone[cur].size

can index off the end of the strip_zone array.  Depending on what it finds
there, it might exit the loop cleanly, or it might spin going further and
further beyond the array until it hits an unmapped address.

This patch rearranges the code so that the last, pointless, iteration of
the loop never happens.  i.e.  the one statement of the last loop that is
needed is moved the the end of the previous loop - or to before the loop
starts - and the loop counter starts from 1 instead of 0.

[PATCH] knfsd: Fix two problems that can cause rmmod nfsd to die

Both cause the 'entries' count in the export cache to be non-zero at module
removal time, so unregistering that cache fails and results in an oops.

1/ exp_pseudoroot (used for NFSv4 only) leaks a reference to an export
   entry.
2/ sunrpc_cache_update doesn't increment the entries count when it adds
   an entry.

David S. Miller [Tue, 23 May 2006 09:07:22 +0000]
[SPARC64]: Respect gfp_t argument to dma_alloc_coherent().

Using asm-generic/dma-mapping.h does not work because pushing
the call down to pci_alloc_coherent() causes the gfp_t argument
of dma_alloc_coherent() to be ignored.

Fix this by implementing things directly, and adding a gfp_t
argument we can use in the internal call down to the PCI DMA
implementation of pci_alloc_coherent().

This fixes massive memory corruption when using the sound driver
layer, which passes things like __GFP_COMP down into these
routines and (correctly) expects that to work.

[NETFILTER]: SNMP NAT: fix memory corruption

Fix memory corruption caused by snmp_trap_decode:

- When snmp_trap_decode fails before the id and address are allocated,
  the pointers contain random memory, but are freed by the caller
  (snmp_parse_mangle).

- When snmp_trap_decode fails after allocating just the ID, it tries
  to free both address and ID, but the address pointer still contains
  random memory. The caller frees both ID and random memory again.

- When snmp_trap_decode fails after allocating both, it frees both,
  and the callers frees both again.

The corruption can be triggered remotely when the ip_nat_snmp_basic
module is loaded and traffic on port 161 or 162 is NATed.

Found by multiple testcases of the trap-app and trap-enc groups of the
PROTOS c06-snmpv1 testsuite.

Bob Picco [Sat, 20 May 2006 22:00:31 +0000]
[PATCH] Align the node_mem_map endpoints to a MAX_ORDER boundary

Andy added code to buddy allocator which does not require the zone's
endpoints to be aligned to MAX_ORDER.  An issue is that the buddy allocator
requires the node_mem_map's endpoints to be MAX_ORDER aligned.  Otherwise
__page_find_buddy could compute a buddy not in node_mem_map for partial
MAX_ORDER regions at zone's endpoints.  page_is_buddy will detect that
these pages at endpoints are not PG_buddy (they were zeroed out by bootmem
allocator and not part of zone).  Of course the negative here is we could
waste a little memory but the positive is eliminating all the old checks
for zone boundary conditions.

SPARSEMEM won't encounter this issue because of MAX_ORDER size constraint
when SPARSEMEM is configured.  ia64 VIRTUAL_MEM_MAP doesn't need the logic
either because the holes and endpoints are handled differently.  This
leaves checking alloc_remap and other arches which privately allocate for
node_mem_map.

64bit mips has different r_info layout.  This patch fixes modpost
segfault for 64bit little endian mips kernel.

Atsushi Nemoto [Sat, 20 May 2006 22:00:26 +0000]
[PATCH] kbuild: check SHT_REL sections

I found that modpost can not detect section mismatch on mips and i386.  On
mips64, the modpost (with r_info layout fix) can detect it.  The current
modpst only checks SHT_RELA section but I suppose SHT_REL section should be
checked also.  This patch does not contain r_info layout fix.  I'll post an
updated r_info layout fix on next mail.

Check SHT_REL sections as like as SHT_RELA sections to detect section
mismatch.

Martin Schwidefsky [Sat, 20 May 2006 22:00:25 +0000]
[PATCH] s390: next_timer_interrupt overflow in stop_hz_timer

The 32 bit unsigned substraction (next - jiffies) in stop_hz_timer can
overflow if jiffies gets advanced between next_timer_interrupt and the read
under the xtime lock.  The cast to a u64 then results in a large value
which causes the cpu to wait too long.  Fix this by casting next and
jiffies independently to u64 before subtracting them.

Zachary Amsden [Sat, 20 May 2006 22:00:24 +0000]
[PATCH] Fix a NO_IDLE_HZ timer bug

Under certain timing conditions, a race during boot occurs where timer
ticks are being processed on remote CPUs.  The remote timer ticks can
increment jiffies, and if this happens during a window when a timeout is
very close to expiring but a local tick has not yet been delivered, you can
end up with

1) No softirq pending
2) A local timer wheel which is not synced to jiffies
3) No high resolution timer active
4) A local timer which is supposed to fire before the current jiffies value.

In this circumstance, the comparison in next_timer_interrupt overflows,
because the base of the comparison for high resolution timers is jiffies,
but for the softirq timer wheel, it is relative the the current base of the
wheel (jiffies_base).

[PATCH] kprobes: bad manipulation of 2 byte opcode on x86_64

Problem:

If we put a probe onto a callq instruction and the probe is executed,
kernel panic of Bad RIP value occurs.

Root cause:

If resume_execution() found 0xff at first byte of p->ainsn.insn, it must
check the _second_ byte.  But current resume_execution check _first_ byte
again.

I changed it checks second byte of p->ainsn.insn.

Kprobes on i386 don't have this problem, because the implementation is a
little bit different from x86_64.

o Kdump second kernel boot fails after a system crash if second kernel
  is UP and acpi=off and if crash occurred on a non-boot cpu.

o Issue here is that MP tables report boot cpu lapic id as 0 but second
  kernel is booting on a different processor and MP table data is stale
  in this context. Hence apic_id_registered() check fails in setup_local_APIC()
  when called from APIC_init_uniprocessor().

o Problem is not seen if ACPI is enabled as in that case
  boot_cpu_physical_apicid is read from the LAPIC.

o Problem is not seen with SMP kernels as well because in this case also
  boot_cpu_physical_apicid is read from LAPIC. (smp_boot_cpus()).

o The problem is fixed by reading boot_cpu_physical_apicid from LAPIC
  if it is a UP kernel and CRASH_DUMP is enabled.

Paul Jackson [Sat, 20 May 2006 22:00:09 +0000]
[PATCH] Cpuset: might sleep checking zones allowed fix

Fix a couple of infrequently encountered 'sleeping function called from
invalid context' in the cpuset hooks in __alloc_pages.  Could sleep while
interrupts disabled.

The routine cpuset_zone_allowed() is called by code in mm/page_alloc.c
__alloc_pages() to determine if a zone is allowed in the current tasks
cpuset.  This routine can sleep, for certain GFP_KERNEL allocations, if the
zone is on a memory node not allowed in the current cpuset, but might be
allowed in a parent cpuset.

But we can't sleep in __alloc_pages() if in interrupt, nor if called for a
GFP_ATOMIC request (__GFP_WAIT not set in gfp_flags).

The rule was intended to be:
  Don't call cpuset_zone_allowed() if you can't sleep, unless you
  pass in the __GFP_HARDWALL flag set in gfp_flag, which disables
  the code that might scan up ancestor cpusets and sleep.

This rule was being violated in a couple of places, due to a bogus change
made (by myself, pj) to __alloc_pages() as part of the November 2005 effort
to cleanup its logic, and also due to a later fix to constrain which swap
daemons were awoken.

The bogus change can be seen at:
  http://linux.derkeiler.com/Mailing-Lists/Kernel/2005-11/4691.html
  [PATCH 01/05] mm fix __alloc_pages cpuset ALLOC_* flags

This was first noticed on a tight memory system, in code that was disabling
interrupts and doing allocation requests with __GFP_WAIT not set, which
resulted in __might_sleep() writing complaints to the log "Debug: sleeping
function called ...", when the code in cpuset_zone_allowed() tried to take
the callback_sem cpuset semaphore.

We haven't seen a system hang on this 'might_sleep' yet, but we are at
decent risk of seeing it fairly soon, especially since the additional
cpuset_zone_allowed() check was added, conditioning wakeup_kswapd(), in
March 2006.

Special thanks to Dave Chinner, for figuring this out, and a tip of the hat
to Nick Piggin who warned me of this back in Nov 2005, before I was ready

[PATCH] pci: correctly allocate return buffers for osc calls

The OSC set and query functions do not allocate enough space for return
values, and set the output buffer length to a false, too large value.  This
causes the acpi-ca code to assume that the output buffer is larger than it
actually is, and overwrite memory when copying acpi return buffers into
this caller provided buffer.  In some cases this can cause kernel oops if
the memory that is overwritten is a pointer.  This patch will change these
calls to use a dynamically allocated output buffer, thus allowing the
acpi-ca code to decide how much space is needed.

Bernd Schmidt points out that binfmt_flat is now leaving the exec file open

We should have closed the file within exec(), not at exit()-time.

But there doesn't seem to be a lot of point in doing all this just to avoid
going over RLIMIT_NOFILE by one fd for a few microseconds.  So take the EMFILE
checking out again.  This will cause binfmt_flat to again fail LTP's
exec-should-return-EMFILE-when-fdtable-is-full test.  That test appears to be
wrong anyway - Open Group specs say nothing about exec() returning EMFILE.

13 years ago[PATCH] NFS server subtree_check returns dubious value
Peter Staubach [Sat, 20 May 2006 21:59:56 +0000]
[PATCH] NFS server subtree_check returns dubious value

Address a problem found when a Linux NFS server uses the "subtree_check"
export option.

The "subtree_check" NFS export option was designed to prohibit a client
from using a file handle for which it should not have permission.  The
algorithm used is to ensure that the entire path to the file being
referenced is accessible to the user attempting to use the file handle.  If
some part of the path is not accessible, then the operation is aborted and
the appropriate version of ESTALE is returned to the NFS client.

The error, ESTALE, is unfortunate in that it causes NFS clients to make
certain assumptions about the continued existence of the file.  They assume
that the file no longer exists and refuse to attempt to access it again.
In this case, the file really does exist, but access was denied by the
server for a particular user.

A better error to return would be an EACCES sort of error.  This would
inform the client that the particular operation that it was attempting was
not allowed, without the nasty side effects of the ESTALE error.

[PATCH] powerpc: Fix ide-pmac sysfs entry

It looks like the generic ide code now wants ide_init_hwif_ports() to set
the parent struct device into the ide_hw structure (new field ?).  Without
this, the mac ide code can cause the ide probing code to explode in flames
in sysfs registration due to what looks like a stale pointer in there
(happens when removing/re-inserting one of the hotswap media bays on some
laptops).

[PATCH] matroxfb: fix DVI setup to be more compatible

There has been a longstanding problem with the Matrox G450 and perhaps
other similar cards, with modes "above" 1280x1024-60 on ppc/ppc64 boxes
running Linux.  Higher resolutions and/or higher refresh rates resulted in
a very noticably "jittery" display, and sometimes no display, depending on
the physical monitor.  This patch fixes that problem on the systems I have
easy access to...

I've tested with SLES9SP3 (2.6.5+ kernel) and 2.6.16-rc6 custom kernels on
an IBM eServer p5 520 w/G450 (a.k.a GXT135P on IBM's ppc64 systems), and a
colleague of mine (Ian Romanick) tested it successfully on an Apple ppc32
box (w/GXT135P).  I also tested it on IA32 box I have with a GXT135P to
verify that it didn't obviously break anything.  In my testing, I covered
single-card, single and dual-head setups using both HD15 and DVI-D signals,
on both the IA32 and ppc64 boxes.  While everything appeared fine on both
boxes, I did encounter one problem: I can't get any signal on the DVI-D
output on the ppc64 box.  However, this is also the case without my patch.

I just noticed that screen-blanking only occurs on the primary display as
well.

13 years ago[PATCH] NFS: fix error handling on access_ok in compat_sys_nfsservctl
Lin Feng Shen [Sat, 20 May 2006 21:59:49 +0000]
[PATCH] NFS: fix error handling on access_ok in compat_sys_nfsservctl

Functions compat_nfs_svc_trans, compat_nfs_clnt_trans,
compat_nfs_exp_trans, compat_nfs_getfd_trans and compat_nfs_getfs_trans,
which are called by compat_sys_nfsservctl(fs/compat.c), don't handle the
return value of access_ok properly.  access_ok return 1 when the addr is
valid, and 0 when it's not, but these functions have the reversed
understanding.  When the address is valid, they always return -EFAULT to
compat_sys_nfsservctl.

An example is to run /usr/sbin/rpc.nfsd(32bit program on Power5).  It
doesn't function as expected.  strace showes that nfsservctl returns
-EFAULT.

The patch fixes this by correcting the error handling on the return value
of access_ok in the five functions.
