8 years agovfs: make no_llseek the default
Arnd Bergmann [Wed, 7 Jul 2010 21:10:11 +0000]
vfs: make no_llseek the default

All file operations now have an explicit .llseek
operation pointer, so we can change the default
action for future code.

This makes changes the default from default_llseek
to no_llseek, which always returns -ESPIPE if
a user tries to seek on a file without a .llseek
operation.

The name of the default_llseek function remains
unchanged, if anyone thinks we should change it,
please speak up.

8 years agovfs: don't use BKL in default_llseek
Arnd Bergmann [Wed, 7 Jul 2010 20:55:17 +0000]
vfs: don't use BKL in default_llseek

There are currently 191 users of default_llseek.
Nine of these are in device drivers that use the
big kernel lock. None of these ever touch
file->f_pos outside of llseek or file_pos_write.

Consequently, we never rely on the BKL
in the default_llseek function and can
replace that with i_mutex, which is also
used in generic_file_llseek.

8 years agollseek: automatically add .llseek fop
Arnd Bergmann [Sun, 15 Aug 2010 16:52:59 +0000]
llseek: automatically add .llseek fop

All file_operations should get a .llseek operation so we can make
nonseekable_open the default for future file operations without a
.llseek pointer.

The three cases that we can automatically detect are no_llseek, seq_lseek
and default_llseek. For cases where we can we can automatically prove that
the file offset is always ignored, we use noop_llseek, which maintains
the current behavior of not returning an error from a seek.

New drivers should normally not use noop_llseek but instead use no_llseek
and call nonseekable_open at open time.  Existing drivers can be converted
to do the same when the maintainer knows for certain that no user code
relies on calling seek on the device file.

The generated code is often incorrectly indented and right now contains
comments that clarify for each added line why a specific variant was
chosen. In the version that gets submitted upstream, the comments will
be gone and I will manually fix the indentation, because there does not
seem to be a way to do that using coccinelle.

Some amount of new code is currently sitting in linux-next that should get
the same modifications, which I will do at the end of the merge window.

Many thanks to Julia Lawall for helping me learn to write a semantic
patch that does all this.

9 years agoPM / Hibernate: Avoid hitting OOM during preallocation of memory
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.

9 years agoxfs: log IO completion workqueue is a high priority queue
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.

Roland McGrath [Wed, 8 Sep 2010 02:36:28 +0000]
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
when one process is doing an execve with very large arguments.

Roland McGrath [Wed, 8 Sep 2010 02:35:49 +0000]
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
that is just userland lossage that userland made happen, not a
kernel problem.

9 years agoblock: Range check cpu in blk_cpu_to_group
Brian King [Fri, 10 Sep 2010 07:03:21 +0000]
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
devtype wwan.

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.

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
is awake.

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.

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.

9 years agobounce: call flush_dcache_page() after bounce_copy_vec()

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

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.

The pte_same check is reliable only if the swap entry remains pinned (by

removed before we take the lock as try_to_free_swap won't care about the

One of the possible impacts of this patch is that a KSM-shared page can
point to the anon_vma of another process, which could exit before the page
is freed.

This can leave a page with a pointer to a recycled anon_vma object, or
worse, a pointer to something that is no longer an anon_vma.

tmio_mmc: don't clear unhandled pending interrupts

Previously, it was possible for ack_mmc_irqs() to clear pending interrupt
bits in the CTL_STATUS register, even though the interrupt handler had not
been called.  This was because of a race that existed when doing a
read-modify-write sequence on CTL_STATUS.  After the read step in this
sequence, if an interrupt occurred (causing one of the bits in CTL_STATUS
to be set) the write step would inadvertently clear it.

Observed with the TMIO_STAT_RXRDY bit together with CMD53 on AR6002 and
BCM4318 SDIO cards in polled mode.

This patch eliminates this race by only writing to CTL_STATUS and clearing
the interrupts that were passed as an argument to ack_mmc_irqs()."

The existing cgroup_attach_task_current_cg() API is called by a thread to
attach another thread to all of its cgroups; this is unsuitable for cases
where a privileged task wants to attach itself to the cgroups of a less
privileged one, since the call must be made from the context of the target
task.

This patch adds a more generic cgroup_attach_task_all() API that allows
both the source task and to-be-moved task to be specified.
cgroup_attach_task_current_cg() becomes a specialization of the more
generic new function.

9 years agogcov: fix null-pointer dereference for certain module types
Peter Oberparleiter [Thu, 9 Sep 2010 23:37:35 +0000]
gcov: fix null-pointer dereference for certain module types

The gcov-kernel infrastructure expects that each object file is loaded
only once.  This may not be true, e.g.  when loading multiple kernel
modules which are linked to the same object file.  As a result, loading
such kernel modules will result in incorrect gcov results while unloading
will cause a null-pointer dereference.

This patch fixes these problems by changing the gcov-kernel infrastructure
so that multiple profiling data sets can be associated with one debugfs
entry.  It applies to 2.6.36-rc1.

9 years agoO_DIRECT: fix the splitting up of contiguous I/O
Jeff Moyer [Thu, 9 Sep 2010 23:37:33 +0000]
O_DIRECT: fix the splitting up of contiguous I/O

commit c2c6ca4 (direct-io: do not merge logically non-contiguous requests)
introduced a bug whereby all O_DIRECT I/Os were submitted a page at a time
to the block layer.  The problem is that the code expected
dio->block_in_file to correspond to the current page in the dio.  In fact,
it corresponds to the previous page submitted via submit_page_section.
This was purely an oversight, as the dio->cur_page_fs_offset field was
introduced for just this purpose.  This patch simply uses the correct
variable when calculating whether there is a mismatch between contiguous
logical blocks and contiguous physical blocks (as described in the
comments).

I also switched the if conditional following this check to an else if, to
ensure that we never call dio_bio_submit twice for the same dio (in
theory, this should not happen, anyway).

I've tested this by running blktrace and verifying that a 64KB I/O was
submitted as a single I/O.  I also ran the patched kernel through
xfstests' aio tests using xfs, ext4 (with 1k and 4k block sizes) and btrfs
and verified that there were no regressions as compared to an unpatched
kernel.

9 years agortc-bfin: fix state restoration when resuming
Mike Frysinger [Thu, 9 Sep 2010 23:37:29 +0000]
rtc-bfin: fix state restoration when resuming

Much (but not all) of the RTC state is kept in the RTC peripheral which
has its own power domain.  Periodically (1 HZ), that state is synced from
one power domain to the other (peripheral->core).  When we are resuming,
we need to wait for the sync to occur so that we don't get a mismatch of
reading undefined state in the rest of the driver.

Further, once the externally maintained bits have been synced back into
the core, we then need to restore the bits maintained in the core.  In our
particular case, that is just the write completion interrupt bit.

If we don't do any of this, working with the RTC causes ~5 second delays
from time to time after waking up due to the write completion interrupt
never firing.

9 years agommc: avoid getting CID on SDIO-only cards
David Vrabel [Thu, 9 Sep 2010 23:37:24 +0000]
mmc: avoid getting CID on SDIO-only cards

The introduction of support for SD combo cards breaks the initialization
of all CSR SDIO chips.  The GO_IDLE (CMD0) in mmc_sd_get_cid() causes CSR
chips to be reset (this is non-standard behavior).

When initializing an SDIO card check for a combo card by using the memory
present bit in the R4 response to IO_SEND_OP_COND (CMD5).  This avoids the
call to mmc_sd_get_cid() on an SDIO-only card.
