11 years agobrd: modify ramdisk device to be able to manage partitions
Laurent Vivier [Wed, 30 Apr 2008 07:55:06 +0000]
brd: modify ramdisk device to be able to manage partitions

This patch adds partition management for Block RAM Device (BRD).

This patch is done to keep in sync BRD and loop device drivers.

This patch adds a parameter to the module, max_part, to specify
the maximum number of partitions per RAM device.

Example:

11 years agoinfrastructure to debug (dynamic) objects
Thomas Gleixner [Wed, 30 Apr 2008 07:55:01 +0000]
infrastructure to debug (dynamic) objects

We can see an ever repeating problem pattern with objects of any kind in the
kernel:

1) freeing of active objects
2) reinitialization of active objects

Both problems can be hard to debug because the crash happens at a point where
we have no chance to decode the root cause anymore.  One problem spot are
kernel timers, where the detection of the problem often happens in interrupt
context and usually causes the machine to panic.

While working on a timer related bug report I had to hack specialized code
into the timer subsystem to get a reasonable hint for the root cause.  This
debug hack was fine for temporary use, but far from a mergeable solution due
to the intrusiveness into the timer code.

The code further lacked the ability to detect and report the root cause
instantly and keep the system operational.

Keeping the system operational is important to get hold of the debug
information without special debugging aids like serial consoles and special
knowledge of the bug reporter.

The problems described above are not restricted to timers, but timers tend to
expose it usually in a full system crash.  Other objects are less explosive,
but the symptoms caused by such mistakes can be even harder to debug.

Instead of creating specialized debugging code for the timer subsystem a
generic infrastructure is created which allows developers to verify their code
and provides an easy to enable debug facility for users in case of trouble.

The debugobjects core code keeps track of operations on static and dynamic
objects by inserting them into a hashed list and sanity checking them on
object operations and provides additional checks whenever kernel memory is
freed.

The tracked object operations are:
- initializing an object
- adding an object to a subsystem list
- deleting an object from a subsystem list

Each operation is sanity checked before the operation is executed and the
subsystem specific code can provide a fixup function which allows to prevent
the damage of the operation.  When the sanity check triggers a warning message
and a stack trace is printed.

The list of operations can be extended if the need arises.  For now it's
limited to the requirements of the first user (timers).

The core code enqueues the objects into hash buckets.  The hash index is
generated from the address of the object to simplify the lookup for the check
on kfree/vfree.  Each bucket has it's own spinlock to avoid contention on a
global lock.

The debug code can be compiled in without being active.  The runtime overhead
is minimal and could be optimized by asm alternatives.  A kernel command line
option enables the debugging code.

Thanks to Ingo Molnar for review, suggestions and cleanup patches.

11 years agofuse: support writable mmap
Miklos Szeredi [Wed, 30 Apr 2008 07:54:41 +0000]
fuse: support writable mmap

Quoting Linus (3 years ago, FUSE inclusion discussions):

  "User-space filesystems are hard to get right. I'd claim that they
   are almost impossible, unless you limit them somehow (shared
   writable mappings are the nastiest part - if you don't have those,
   you can reasonably limit your problems by limiting the number of
   dirty pages you accept through normal "write()" calls)."

Instead of attempting the impossible, I've just waited for the dirty page
accounting infrastructure to materialize (thanks to Peter Zijlstra and
others).  This nicely solved the biggest problem: limiting the number of pages
used for write caching.

Some small details remained, however, which this largish patch attempts to
address.  It provides a page writeback implementation for fuse, which is
completely safe against VM related deadlocks.  Performance may not be very
good for certain usage patterns, but generally it should be acceptable.

It has been tested extensively with fsx-linux and bash-shared-mapping.

Fuse page writeback design
--------------------------

fuse_writepage() allocates a new temporary page with GFP_NOFS|__GFP_HIGHMEM.
It copies the contents of the original page, and queues a WRITE request to the
userspace filesystem using this temp page.

The writeback is finished instantly from the MM's point of view: the page is
removed from the radix trees, and the PageDirty and PageWriteback flags are
cleared.

For the duration of the actual write, the NR_WRITEBACK_TEMP counter is
incremented.  The per-bdi writeback count is not decremented until the actual
write completes.

On dirtying the page, fuse waits for a previous write to finish before
proceeding.  This makes sure, there can only be one temporary page used at a
time for one cached page.

This approach is wasteful in both memory and CPU bandwidth, so why is this
complication needed?

The basic problem is that there can be no guarantee about the time in which
the userspace filesystem will complete a write.  It may be buggy or even
malicious, and fail to complete WRITE requests.  We don't want unrelated parts
of the system to grind to a halt in such cases.

Also a filesystem may need additional resources (particularly memory) to
complete a WRITE request.  There's a great danger of a deadlock if that
allocation may wait for the writepage to finish.

Currently there are several cases where the kernel can block on page
writeback:

  - allocation order is larger than PAGE_ALLOC_COSTLY_ORDER
  - page migration
  - throttle_vm_writeout (through NR_WRITEBACK)
  - sync(2)

Of course in some cases (fsync, msync) we explicitly want to allow blocking.
So for these cases new code has to be added to fuse, since the VM is not
tracking writeback pages for us any more.

As an extra safetly measure, the maximum dirty ratio allocated to a single
fuse filesystem is set to 1% by default.  This way one (or several) buggy or
malicious fuse filesystems cannot slow down the rest of the system by hogging
dirty memory.

With appropriate privileges, this limit can be raised through
'/sys/class/bdi/<bdi>/max_ratio'.

Miklos Szeredi [Wed, 30 Apr 2008 07:54:38 +0000]
mm: Add NR_WRITEBACK_TEMP counter

Fuse will use temporary buffers to write back dirty data from memory mappings
(normal writes are done synchronously).  This is needed, because there cannot
be any guarantee about the time in which a write will complete.

By using temporary buffers, from the MM's point if view the page is written
back immediately.  If the writeout was due to memory pressure, this
effectively migrates data from a full zone to a less full zone.

This patch adds a new counter (NR_WRITEBACK_TEMP) for the number of pages used
as temporary buffers.

Under normal circumstances each device is given a part of the total write-back

storage people who wanted to avoid writing out at all costs - they of course
needed some pdflush hacks as well)

max_ratio - allows one to assign a maximum portion of the dirty limit to a
particular device.  This is useful in situations where you want to avoid one
device taking all or most of the write-back cache.  Eg.  an NFS mount that is

pids: __set_special_pids: use change_pid() helper

Use change_pid() instead of detach_pid() + attach_pid() in
__set_special_pids().

This way task_session() is not NULL in between.

11 years agopids: introduce change_pid() helper
Oleg Nesterov [Wed, 30 Apr 2008 07:54:26 +0000]
pids: introduce change_pid() helper

Based on Eric W. Biederman's idea.

Without tasklist_lock held task_session()/task_pgrp() can return NULL if the
caller races with setprgp()/setsid() which does detach_pid() + attach_pid().
This can happen even if task == current.

Intoduce the new helper, change_pid(), which should be used instead.  This way
the caller always sees the special pid != NULL, either old or new.

Also change the prototype of attach_pid(), it always returns 0 and nobody
check the returned value.

11 years agopids: de_thread: don't clear session/pgrp pids for the old leader
Oleg Nesterov [Wed, 30 Apr 2008 07:54:25 +0000]
pids: de_thread: don't clear session/pgrp pids for the old leader

Based on Eric W. Biederman's idea.

Unless task == current, without tasklist_lock held task_session()/task_pgrp()
can return NULL if the caller races with de_thread() which switches the group
leader.

Change transfer_pid() to not clear old->pids[type].pid for the old leader.
This means that its .pid can point to "nowhere", but this is already true for
sub-threads, and the old leader is not group_leader() any longer.  IOW, with
or without this change we can't trust task's special pids unless it is the
group leader.

With this change the following code

rcu_read_lock();
task = find_task_by_xxx();
do_something(task_pgrp(task), task_session(task));
rcu_read_unlock();

can't race with exec and hit the NULL pid.

11 years agoDeprecate find_task_by_pid()
Pavel Emelyanov [Wed, 30 Apr 2008 07:54:24 +0000]
Deprecate find_task_by_pid()

There are some places that are known to operate on tasks'
global pids only:

* the rest_init() call (called on boot)
* the kgdb's getthread
* the create_kthread() (since the kthread is run in init ns)

So use the find_task_by_pid_ns(..., &init_pid_ns) there
and schedule the find_task_by_pid for removal.

Pavel Emelyanov [Wed, 30 Apr 2008 07:54:23 +0000]
Use find_task_by_vpid in taskstats

The pid to lookup a task by is passed inside taskstats code via genetlink
message.

Since netlink packets are now processed in the context of the sending task,
this is correct to lookup the task with find_task_by_vpid() here.

Besides, I fix the call to fill_pid() from taskstats_exit(), since the
tsk->pid is not required in fill_pid() in this case, and the pid field on
task_struct is going to be deprecated as well.

- Remove private put_char method that does a write call for one char - we
  have that anyway

- Most but not yet all of the termios copy under lock fixing (some has other
  dependencies to follow)

- Note a few locking bugs in drivers found in the process

  fix the termios locking

11 years agodrivers/char/ds1286.c: use time_before, time_before_eq, etc

drivers/char/ds1286.c: use time_before, time_before_eq, etc

The functions time_before, time_before_eq, time_after, and time_after_eq
are more robust for comparing jiffies against other values.

A simplified version of the semantic patch making this change is as follows:
