genirq: Provide locked setter for chip, handler, name

Some irq_set_type() callbacks need to change the chip and the handler
when the trigger mode changes. We have already a (misnomed) setter
function for the handler which can be called from irq_set_type().

Provide one which allows to set chip and name as well. Put the

Jim Keniston [Tue, 22 Mar 2011 23:35:12 +0000]
zlib: slim down zlib_deflate() workspace when possible

Instead of always creating a huge (268K) deflate_workspace with the
maximum compression parameters (windowBits=15, memLevel=8), allow the
caller to obtain a smaller workspace by specifying smaller parameter
values.

For example, when capturing oops and panic reports to a medium with
limited capacity, such as NVRAM, compression may be the only way to
capture the whole report.  In this case, a small workspace (24K works
fine) is a win, whether you allocate the workspace when you need it (i.e.,
during an oops or panic) or at boot time.

I've verified that this patch works with all accepted values of windowBits
(positive and negative), memLevel, and compression level.

Stuart Swales [Tue, 22 Mar 2011 23:35:06 +0000]
adfs: add hexadecimal filetype suffix option

ADFS (FileCore) storage complies with the RISC OS filetype specification
(12 bits of file type information is stored in the file load address,
rather than using a file extension).  The existing driver largely ignores
this information and does not present it to the end user.

It is desirable that stored filetypes be made visible to the end user to
facilitate a precise copy of data and metadata from a hard disc (or image
thereof) into a RISC OS emulator (such as RPCEmu) or to a network share
which can be accessed by real Acorn systems.

This patch implements a per-mount filetype suffix option (use -o
ftsuffix=1) to present any filetype as a ,xyz hexadecimal suffix on each
file.  This type suffix is compatible with that used by RISC OS systems
that access network servers using NFS client software and by RPCemu's host
filing system.

adfs: improve timestamp precision

ADFS (FileCore) storage complies with the RISC OS timestamp specification
(40-bit centiseconds since 01 Jan 1900 00:00:00).  It is desirable that

data and metadata from a hard disc (or image thereof) into a RISC OS
emulator (such as RPCEmu).

This patch implements a full-precision conversion from ADFS to Unix
timestamp as the existing driver, for ease of calculation with old 32-bit
compilers, uses the common trick of shifting the 40-bits representing
centiseconds around into 32-bits representing seconds thereby losing
precision.

Stuart Swales [Tue, 22 Mar 2011 23:35:04 +0000]
adfs: fix E+/F+ dir size > 2048 crashing kernel

Kernel crashes in fs/adfs module when accessing directories with a large
number of objects on mounted Acorn ADFS E+/F+ format discs (or images) as
the existing code writes off the end of the fixed array of struct
buffer_head pointers.

Additionally, each directory access that didn't crash would leak a buffer
as nr_buffers was not adjusted correctly for E+/F+ discs (was always left
as one less than required).

The patch fixes this by allocating a dynamically-sized set of struct
buffer_head pointers if necessary for the E+/F+ case (many directories
still do in fact fit in 2048 bytes) and sets the correct nr_buffers so
that all buffers are released.

Addresses https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=26072

Tested by tar'ing the contents of my RISC PC's E+ format 20Gb HDD which
contains a number of large directories that previously crashed the kernel.

x86: allow CONFIG_ISA_DMA_API to be disabled

Not all 64-bit systems require ISA-style DMA, so allow it to be

Disabling CONFIG_ISA_DMA_API is dependent on x86_64 since those machines
do not have ISA slots and benefit the most from disabling the option (and
on CONFIG_EXPERT as required by H.  Peter Anvin).

When disabled, this also avoids declaring claim_dma_lock(),
release_dma_lock(), request_dma(), and free_dma() since those interfaces
will no longer be provided.

8 years agokstrto*: converting strings to integers done (hopefully) right
Alexey Dobriyan [Tue, 22 Mar 2011 23:34:40 +0000]
kstrto*: converting strings to integers done (hopefully) right

1. simple_strto*() do not contain overflow checks and crufty,
   libc way to indicate failure.
2. strict_strto*() also do not have overflow checks but the name and
   comments pretend they do.
3. Both families have only "long long" and "long" variants,
   but users want strtou8()
4. Both "simple" and "strict" prefixes are wrong:
   Simple doesn't exactly say what's so simple, strict should not exist
   because conversion should be strict by default.

The solution is to use "k" prefix and add convertors for more types.
Enter
kstrtoull()
kstrtoll()
kstrtoul()
kstrtol()
kstrtouint()
kstrtoint()

kstrtou64()
kstrtos64()
kstrtou32()
kstrtos32()
kstrtou16()
kstrtos16()
kstrtou8()
kstrtos8()

Include runtime testsuite (somewhat incomplete) as well.

strict_strto*() become deprecated, stubbed to kstrto*() and
eventually will be removed altogether.

Use kstrto*() in code today!

Note: on some archs _kstrtoul() and _kstrtol() are left in tree, even if
      they'll be unused at runtime. This is temporarily solution,
      because I don't want to hardcode list of archs where these
      functions aren't needed. Current solution with sizeof() and
      __alignof__ at least always works.

printk: use %pK for /proc/kallsyms and /proc/modules

In an effort to reduce kernel address leaks that might be used to help
target kernel privilege escalation exploits, this patch uses %pK when
displaying addresses in /proc/kallsyms, /proc/modules, and
/sys/module/*/sections/*.

Note that this changes %x to %p, so some legitimately 0 values in
/proc/kallsyms would have changed from 00000000 to "(null)".  To avoid
this, "(null)" is not used when using the "K" format.  Anything that was
already successfully parsing "(null)" in addition to full hex digits
should have no problem with this change.  (Thanks to Joe Perches for the
suggestion.) Due to the %x to %p, "void *" casts are needed since these
addresses are already "unsigned long" everywhere internally, due to their
starting life as ELF section offsets.

console: prevent registered consoles from dumping old kernel message over again

For a platform with many consoles like:
 "console=tty1 console=ttyMFD2 console=ttyS0 earlyprintk=mrst"

Each time when the non "selected_console" (tty1 and ttyMFD2 here) get
registered, the existing kernel message will be printed out on registered
consoles again, the "mrst" early console will get some same message for 3
times, and "tty1" will get some for twice.

As suggested by Andrew Morton, every time a new console is registered, it
will be set as the "exclusive" console which will dump the already
existing kernel messages.

This mechanism introduces a window in which no printk can happen on the
console and messages are buffered and then printed once the new console is
available.

If a kernel crashes during this window, all it's left on the boot console
is "console [foo] enabled, bootconsole disabled" making debug of the crash
rather 'interesting'.

By adding "keep_bootcon" option, do not unregister the boot console, that
will allow to printk everything that is happening up to the crash.

The option is clearly meant only for debugging purposes as it introduces
lots of duplicated info printed on console, but will make bug report from
users easier as it doesn't require a kernel build just to figure out where
we crash.

8 years agokernel/watchdog.c: always return NOTIFY_OK during cpu up/down events
Don Zickus [Tue, 22 Mar 2011 23:34:17 +0000]
kernel/watchdog.c: always return NOTIFY_OK during cpu up/down events

This patch addresses a couple of problems.  One was the case when the
hardlockup failed to start, it also failed to start the softlockup.  There
were valid cases when the hardlockup shouldn't start and that shouldn't
block the softlockup (no lapic, bios controls perf counters).

The second problem was when the hardlockup failed to start on boxes (from
a no lapic or bios controlled perf counter case), it reported failure to
the cpu notifier chain.  This blocked the notifier from continuing to
start other more critical pieces of cpu bring-up (in our case based on a
2.6.32 fork, it was the mce).  As a result, during soft cpu online/offline
testing, the system would panic when a cpu was offlined because the cpu
notifier would succeed in processing a watchdog disable cpu event and
would panic in the mce case as a result of un-initialized variables from a
never executed cpu up event.

I realized the hardlockup/softlockup cases are really just debugging aids
and should never impede the progress of a cpu up/down event.  Therefore I
modified the code to always return NOTIFY_OK and instead rely on printks
to inform the user of problems.

Don Zickus [Tue, 22 Mar 2011 23:34:16 +0000]
kernel/watchdog.c: allow hardlockup to panic by default

When a cpu is considered stuck, instead of limping along and just printing
a warning, it is sometimes preferred to just panic, let kdump capture the
vmcore and reboot.  This gets the machine back into a stable state quickly
while saving the info that got it into a stuck state to begin with.

Add a Kconfig option to allow users to set the hardlockup to panic
by default.  Also add in a 'nmi_watchdog=nopanic' to override this.

8 years agocalibrate: retry with wider bounds when converge seems to fail
Phil Carmody [Tue, 22 Mar 2011 23:34:15 +0000]
calibrate: retry with wider bounds when converge seems to fail

Systems with unmaskable interrupts such as SMIs may massively
underestimate loops_per_jiffy, and fail to converge anywhere near the real
value.  A case seen on x86_64 was an initial estimate of 256<<12, which
converged to 511<<12 where the real value should have been over 630<<12.
This admitedly requires bypassing the TSC calibration (lpj_fine), and a
failure to settle in the direct calibration too, but is physically
possible.  This failure does not depend on my previous calibration
optimisation, but by luck is easy to fix with the optimisation in place
with a trivial retry loop.

In the context of the optimised converging method, as we can no longer
trust the starting estimate, enlarge the search bounds exponentially so
that the number of retries is logarithmically bounded.

8 years agocalibrate: home in on correct lpj value more quickly
Phil Carmody [Tue, 22 Mar 2011 23:34:13 +0000]
calibrate: home in on correct lpj value more quickly

Binary chop with a jiffy-resync on each step to find an upper bound is
slow, so just race in a tight-ish loop to find an underestimate.

If done with lots of individual steps, sometimes several hundreds of
iterations would be required, which would impose a significant overhead,
and make the initial estimate very low.  By taking slowly increasing steps
there will be less overhead.

E.g.  an x86_64 2.67GHz could have fitted in 613 individual small delays,
but in reality should have been able to fit in a single delay 644 times
longer, so underestimated by 31 steps.  To reach the equivalent of 644
small delays with the accelerating scheme now requires about 130
iterations, so has <1/4th of the overhead, and can therefore be expected
to underestimate by only 7 steps.

As now we have a better initial estimate we can binary chop over a smaller
range.  With the loop overhead in the initial estimate kept low, and the
step sizes moderate, we won't have under-estimated by much, so chose as
tight a range as we can.

8 years agocalibrate: extract fall-back calculation into own helper
Phil Carmody [Tue, 22 Mar 2011 23:34:12 +0000]
calibrate: extract fall-back calculation into own helper

The motivation for this patch series is that currently our OMAP calibrates
itself using the trial-and-error binary chop fallback that some other
architectures no longer need to perform.  This is a lengthy process,
taking 0.2s in an environment where boot time is of great interest.

Patch 2/4 has two optimisations.  Firstly, it replaces the initial
repeated- doubling to find the relevant power of 2 with a tight loop that
just does as much as it can in a jiffy.  Secondly, it doesn't binary chop
over an entire power of 2 range, it choses a much smaller range based on
how much it squeezed in, and failed to squeeze in, during the first stage.
 Both are significant optimisations, and bring our calibration down from
23 jiffies to 5, and, in the process, often arrive at a more accurate lpj
value.

The 'bands' and 'sub-logarithmic' growth may look over-engineered, but
they only cost a small level of inaccuracy in the initial guess (for all
architectures) in order to avoid the very large inaccuracies that appeared
during testing (on x86_64 architectures, and presumably others with less
metronomic operation).  Note that due to the existence of the TSC and
other timers, the x86_64 will not typically use this fallback routine, but
I wanted to code defensively, able to cope with all kinds of processor
behaviours and kernel command line options.

Patch 3/4 is an additional trap for the nightmare scenario where the
initial estimate is very inaccurate, possibly due to things like SMIs.
It simply retries with a larger bound.

Stephen said:

I tried this patch set out on an MSM7630.
:
: Before:
:
: Calibrating delay loop... 681.57 BogoMIPS (lpj=3407872)
:
: After:
:
: Calibrating delay loop... 680.75 BogoMIPS (lpj=3403776)
:
: But the really good news is calibration time dropped from ~247ms to ~56ms.
:  Sadly we won't be able to benefit from this should my udelay patches make
: it into ARM because we would be using calibrate_delay_direct() instead (at
: least on machines who choose to).  Can we somehow reapply the logic behind
: this to calibrate_delay_direct()?  That would be even better, but this is
: definitely a boot time improvement.
:
: Or maybe we could just replace calibrate_delay_direct() with this fallback
: calculation?  If __delay() is a thin wrapper around read_current_timer()
: it should work just as well (plus patch 3 makes it handle SMIs).  I'll try
: that out.

This patch:

... so that it can be modified more clinically.

This is almost entirely cosmetic. The only change to the operation
is that the global variable is only set once after the estimation is
completed, rather than taking on all the intermediate values. However,
there are no readers of that variable, so this change is unimportant.

8 years agosys_unshare: remove the dead CLONE_THREAD/SIGHAND/VM code
Oleg Nesterov [Tue, 22 Mar 2011 23:34:09 +0000]
sys_unshare: remove the dead CLONE_THREAD/SIGHAND/VM code

Cleanup: kill the dead code which does nothing but complicates the code
and confuses the reader.

sys_unshare(CLONE_THREAD/SIGHAND/VM) is not really implemented, and I
doubt very much it will ever work.  At least, nobody even tried since the
original 99d1419d96d7df9cfa56 ("unshare system call -v5: system call
handler function") was applied more than 4 years ago.

And the code is not consistent.  unshare_thread() always fails
unconditionally, while unshare_sighand() and unshare_vm() pretend to work
if there is nothing to unshare.

Remove unshare_thread(), unshare_sighand(), unshare_vm() helpers and
related variables and add a simple CLONE_THREAD | CLONE_SIGHAND| CLONE_VM
check into check_unshare_flags().

Also, move the "CLONE_NEWNS needs CLONE_FS" check from
check_unshare_flags() to sys_unshare().  This looks more consistent and
matches the similar do_sysvsem check in sys_unshare().

Note: with or without this patch "atomic_read(mm->mm_users) > 1" can give
a false positive due to get_task_mm().

8 years agouml: kernels on {i386,x86_64} produce bad coredumps
Paul Pluzhnikov [Tue, 22 Mar 2011 23:33:46 +0000]
uml: kernels on {i386,x86_64} produce bad coredumps

One of our users reported that when a user-level program SIGSEGVs under
UML kernel, the resulting core dump is not very usable.

I have reproduced that with the latest kernel:

  make ARCH=um defconfig; make ARCH=um

Run the resulting kernel, then "inside" run this program:

#include <pthread.h>

void *fn(void *p)
{
 abort();
}

int main()
{
 pthread_t tid;
 pthread_create(&tid, 0, fn, 0);
 pthread_join(tid, 0);
 return 0;
}

Analyze the coredump with GDB. Here is what you'll see:

sudo gdb -q -ex 'set solib-absolute-prefix ../root_fs' -ex 'file ../root_fs/var/tmp/mt-abort' -ex 'core ../root_fs/var/tmp/core.762'

Examining the core shows that NT_PRSTATUS notes for all threads other than
the one that crashed are zeroed out.

I believe this is happening because neither ELF_CORE_COPY_TASK_REGS nor
task_pt_regs are defined under ARCH=um, and so elf_core_copy_task_regs()
becomes a no-op.

Attached patch fixes this for SUBARCH={x86_64,i386}.

8 years agomm/memblock: properly handle overlaps and fix error path
Benjamin Herrenschmidt [Tue, 22 Mar 2011 23:33:43 +0000]
mm/memblock: properly handle overlaps and fix error path

Currently memblock_reserve() or memblock_free() don't handle overlaps of
any kind.  There is some special casing for coalescing exactly adjacent
regions but that's about it.

This is annoying because typically memblock_reserve() is used to mark
regions passed by the firmware as reserved and we all know how much we can
trust our firmwares...

Also, with the current code, if we do something it doesn't handle right
such as trying to memblock_reserve() a large range spanning multiple
existing smaller reserved regions for example, or doing overlapping
reservations, it can silently corrupt the internal region array, causing
odd errors much later on, such as allocations returning reserved regions
etc...

This patch rewrites the underlying functions that add or remove a region
to the arrays.  The new code is a lot more robust as it fully handles
overlapping regions.  It's also, imho, simpler than the previous
implementation.

In addition, while doing so, I found a bug where if we fail to double the
array while adding a region, we would remove the last region of the array
rather than the region we just allocated.  This fixes it too.

8 years agowriteback: make mapping->writeback_index to point to the last written page
Jun'ichi Nomura [Tue, 22 Mar 2011 23:33:40 +0000]
writeback: make mapping->writeback_index to point to the last written page

For range-cyclic writeback (e.g.  kupdate), the writeback code sets a
continuation point of the next writeback to mapping->writeback_index which
is set the page after the last written page.  This happens so that we
evenly write the whole file even if pages in it get continuously
redirtied.

However, in some cases, sequential writer is writing in the middle of the
page and it just redirties the last written page by continuing from that.
For example with an application which uses a file as a big ring buffer we
see:

[1st writeback session]
       ...
       flush-8:0-2743  4571: block_bio_queue: 8,0 W 94898514 + 8

[2nd writeback session after 35sec]
       flush-8:0-2743  4606: block_bio_queue: 8,0 W 94898562 + 8
       flush-8:0-2743  4606: block_bio_queue: 8,0 W 94898570 + 8

     kworker/0:1-11    4606: block_rq_issue: 8,0 W 0 () 94898562 + 640
     kworker/0:1-11    4606: block_rq_issue: 8,0 W 0 () 94899202 + 72
       ...
       flush-8:0-2743  4606: block_bio_queue: 8,0 W 94899962 + 8
       flush-8:0-2743  4606: block_bio_queue: 8,0 W 94899970 + 8
       flush-8:0-2743  4606: block_bio_queue: 8,0 W 94899978 + 8
       flush-8:0-2743  4606: block_bio_queue: 8,0 W 94899986 + 8
       flush-8:0-2743  4606: block_bio_queue: 8,0 W 94899994 + 8
     kworker/0:1-11    4606: block_rq_issue: 8,0 W 0 () 94899962 + 40
>>     flush-8:0-2743  4606: block_bio_queue: 8,0 W 94898554 + 8
>>     flush-8:0-2743  4606: block_rq_issue: 8,0 W 0 () 94898554 + 8

So we seeked back to 94898554 after we wrote all the pages at the end of
the file.

This extra seek seems unnecessary.  If we continue writeback from the last
written page, we can avoid it and do not cause harm to other cases.  The
original intent of even writeout over the whole file is preserved and if
the page does not get redirtied pagevec_lookup_tag() just skips it.

As an exceptional case, when I/O error happens, set done_index to the next
page as the comment in the code suggests.

Given all that, it is a bit silly that it is marked as inline.  The

8 years agosys_swapon: separate parsing of bad blocks and extents
Cesar Eduardo Barros [Tue, 22 Mar 2011 23:33:32 +0000]
sys_swapon: separate parsing of bad blocks and extents

Move the code which parses the bad block list and the extents to a
separate function. Only code movement, no functional changes.

This change uses the fact that, after the success path, nr_good_pages ==
p->pages.

8 years agosys_swapon: call swap_cgroup_swapon() earlier
Cesar Eduardo Barros [Tue, 22 Mar 2011 23:33:31 +0000]
sys_swapon: call swap_cgroup_swapon() earlier

The call to swap_cgroup_swapon is in the middle of loading the swap map
and extents. As it only does memory allocation and does not depend on
the swapfile layout (map/extents), it can be called earlier (or later).

Move it to just after the allocation of swap_map, since it is
conceptually similar (allocates a map).

sys_swapon: simplify error flow in read_swap_header()

Since there is no cleanup to do, there is no reason to jump to a label.
Return directly instead.
