11 years agoblock: Create bip slabs with embedded integrity vectors

block: Create bip slabs with embedded integrity vectors

This patch restores stacking ability to the block layer integrity
infrastructure by creating a set of dedicated bip slabs.  Each bip slab
has an embedded bio_vec array at the end.  This cuts down on memory
allocations and also simplifies the code compared to the original bvec
version.  Only the largest bip slab is backed by a mempool.  The pool is
contained in the bio_set so stacking drivers can ensure forward
progress.

cfq-iosched: get rid of the need for __GFP_NOFAIL in cfq_find_alloc_queue()

Setup an emergency fallback cfqq that we allocate at IO scheduler init
time. If the slab allocation fails in cfq_find_alloc_queue(), we'll just
punt IO to that cfqq instead. This ensures that cfq_find_alloc_queue()
never fails without having to ensure free memory.

On cfqq lookup, always try to allocate a new cfqq if the given cfq io
context has the oom_cfqq assigned. This ensures that we only temporarily
punt to this shared queue.

11 years agomm: prevent balance_dirty_pages() from doing too much work
Richard Kennedy [Tue, 30 Jun 2009 18:41:35 +0000]
mm: prevent balance_dirty_pages() from doing too much work

balance_dirty_pages can overreact and move all of the dirty pages to
writeback unnecessarily.

balance_dirty_pages makes its decision to throttle based on the number of
dirty plus writeback pages that are over the calculated limit,so it will
continue to move pages even when there are plenty of pages in writeback
and less than the threshold still dirty.

This allows it to overshoot its limits and move all the dirty pages to
writeback while waiting for the drives to catch up and empty the writeback
list.

A simple fio test easily demonstrates this problem.

fio --name=f1 --directory=/disk1 --size=2G -rw=write --name=f2 --directory=/disk2 --size=1G --rw=write --startdelay=10

This is the simplest fix I could find, but I'm not entirely sure that it
alone will be enough for all cases.  But it certainly is an improvement on
my desktop machine writing to 2 disks.

Do we need something more for machines with large arrays where
bdi_threshold * number_of_drives is greater than the dirty_ratio ?

spi: bitbang bugfix in message setup

Bugfix to spi_bitbang infrastructure: make sure to always set transfer
parameters on the first pass through the message's per-transfer loop.
This can matter with drivers that replace the per-word or per-buffer
transfer primitives, on busses with multiple SPI devices.

Previously, this could have started messages using the settings left after
previous messages.  The problem was observed when a high speed chip
(m25p80 type flash) was running very slowly because a low speed device
(avr8 microcontroller) had previously used the bus.  Similar faults could
have driven the low speed device too fast, or used an unexpected word
size.

Add a mutex to avoid a circular locking problem between the mm layer
semaphore and fbdev ioctl mutex through the fb_mmap() call.

Also, add mutex to all places where smem_start and smem_len fields change
so the mutex inside the fb_mmap() is actually used.  Changing of these
fields before calling the framebuffer_register() are not mutexed.

This is 2.6.31 material.  It removes one lockdep (fb_mmap() and
register_framebuffer()) but there is still another one (fb_release() and
register_framebuffer()).  It also cleans up handling of the smem_start and
smem_len fields used by mutexed section of the fb_mmap().

spi: add spi_master flag word

Add a new spi_master.flags word listing constraints relevant to that
controller.  Define the first constraint bit: a half duplex restriction.
Include that constraint in the OMAP1 MicroWire controller driver.

Have the mmc_spi host be the first customer of this flag.  Its coding
relies heavily on full duplex transfers, so it must fail when the
underlying controller driver won't perform them.

(The spi_write_then_read routine could use it too: use the
temporarily-withdrawn full-duplex speedup unless this flag is set, in
which case the existing code applies.  Similarly, any spi_master
implementing only SPI_3WIRE should set the flag.)

David Brownell [Tue, 30 Jun 2009 18:41:26 +0000]
spi: new spi->mode bits

Add two new spi_device.mode bits to accomodate more protocol options, and
pass them through to usermode drivers:

 * SPI_NO_CS ... a second 3-wire variant, where the chipselect
   line is removed instead of a data line; transfers are still
   full duplex.

   This obviously has STRONG protocol implications since the
   chipselect transitions can't be used to synchronize state
   transitions with the SPI master.

 * SPI_READY ... defines open drain signal that's pulled low
   to pause the clock.  This defines a 5-wire variant (normal
   4-wire SPI plus READY) and two 4-wire variants (READY plus
   each of the 3-wire flavors).

   Such hardware flow control can be a big win.  There are ADC
   converters and flash chips that expose READY signals, but not
   many host controllers support it today.

The spi_bitbang code should be changed to use SPI_NO_CS instead of its
current nonportable hack.  That's a mode most hardware can easily support

11 years agoext2: return -EIO not -ESTALE on directory traversal through deleted inode
Bryan Donlan [Tue, 30 Jun 2009 18:41:24 +0000]
ext2: return -EIO not -ESTALE on directory traversal through deleted inode

ext2_iget() returns -ESTALE if invoked on a deleted inode, in order to
report errors to NFS properly.  However, in ext[234]_lookup(), this
-ESTALE can be propagated to userspace if the filesystem is corrupted such
that a directory entry references a deleted inode.  This leads to a
misleading error message - "Stale NFS file handle" - and confusion on the
part of the admin.

The bug can be easily reproduced by creating a new filesystem, making a
link to an unused inode using debugfs, then mounting and attempting to ls
-l said link.

This patch thus changes ext2_lookup to return -EIO if it receives -ESTALE
from ext2_iget(), as ext2 does for other filesystem metadata corruption;
and also invokes the appropriate ext*_error functions when this case is
detected.

11 years agoelf: limit max map count to safe value
KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Tue, 30 Jun 2009 18:41:23 +0000]
elf: limit max map count to safe value

With ELF, at generating coredump, some more headers other than used
vmas are added.

When max_map_count == 65536, a core generated by following kinds of
code can be unreadable because the number of ELF's program header is
written in 16bit in Ehdr (please see elf.h) and the number overflows.

==
... = mmap(); (munmap, mprotect, etc...)
if (failed)
abort();
==

This can happen in mmap/munmap/mprotect/etc...which calls split_vma().

I think 65536 is not safe as _default_ and reduce it to 65530 is good
for avoiding unexpected corrupted core.

Anyway, max_map_count can be enlarged by sysctl if a user is brave..

11 years agoalpha: fix percpu build breakage
Tejun Heo [Tue, 30 Jun 2009 18:41:18 +0000]
alpha: fix percpu build breakage

alpha percpu access requires custom SHIFT_PERCPU_PTR() definition for
modules to work around addressing range limitation.  This is done via
generating inline assembly using C preprocessing which forces the
assembler to generate external reference.  This happens behind the
compiler's back and makes the compiler think that static percpu variables
in modules are unused.

This used to be worked around by using __unused attribute for percpu
variables which prevent the compiler from omitting the variable; however,
recent declare/definition attribute unification change broke this as
__used can't be used for declaration.  Also, in the process,
PER_CPU_ATTRIBUTES definition in alpha percpu.h got broken.

This patch adds PER_CPU_DEF_ATTRIBUTES which is only used for definitions
and make alpha use it to add __used for percpu variables in modules.  This
also fixes the PER_CPU_ATTRIBUTES double definition bug.

fbdev: work around old compiler bug

When building with a 4.1.x compiler on powerpc64 (at least) we get this
error:

drivers/video/logo/logo_linux_mono.c:81: error: logo_linux_mono causes a section type conflict

This was introduced by commit ae52bb2384f721562f15f719de1acb8e934733cb
("fbdev: move logo externs to header file").  This is a partial revert of
that commit sufficient to not hit the compiler bug.

Also convert _clut arrays from __initconst to __initdata.

Sam said:

  Al analysed this some time ago.  When we say something is const then
  _sometimes_ gcc annotate the section as const(?) - sometimes not.  So if
  we have two variables/functions annotated __*const and gcc decides to
  annotate the section const only in one case we get a section type
  conflict.

11 years agogcov: fix __ctors_start alignment
Heiko Carstens [Tue, 30 Jun 2009 18:41:13 +0000]
gcov: fix __ctors_start alignment

The ctors section for each object file is eight byte aligned (on 64 bit).
However the __ctors_start symbol starts at an arbitrary address dependent
on the size of the previous sections.

Therefore the linker may add some zeroes after __ctors_start to make sure
the ctors contents are properly aligned.  However the extra zeroes at the
beginning aren't expected by the code.  When walking the functions
pointers contained in there and extra zeroes are added this may result in
random jumps.  So make sure that the __ctors_start symbol is always
aligned as well.

Fixes this crash on an allyesconfig on s390:

[IA64] address compiler warnings perfmon.c/salinfo.c

perfmon.c has a dubious cast directly from "int" to "void *". Add
an intermediate cast to "long" to keep gcc happy.

salinfo.c uses "down_trylock()" in a highly creative way (explained
in the comments in the file) ... but it does kick out this warning:

 arch/ia64/kernel/salinfo.c:195: warning: ignoring return value of 'down_trylock'

which people occasionally try to "fix" in ways that do not work. Use some
casts to keep gcc quiet.

I.e. we can't handle these two kinds of files in the same way:

2) not prelinked library with debug information from a -debuginfo package:

[acme@doppio pahole]$ readelf -s /usr/lib/debug/usr/lib64/libdw-0.141.so.debug | egrep 'FUNC.+GLOBAL.+dwfl_report_elf'

ide: memory overrun in ide_get_identity_ioctl() on big endian machines using ioctl HDIO_OBSOLETE_IDENTITY

This patch fixes a memory overrun in function ide_get_identity_ioctl() which
chooses the size of a memory buffer depending on the ioctl command that led
to the function call, however, passes that buffer to a function which needs the
buffer size to be always chosen unconditionally.

Due to conditional compilation the memory overrun can only happen on big endian
machines. The error can be triggered using ioctl HDIO_OBSOLETE_IDENTITY. Usage
of ioctl HDIO_GET_IDENTITY is safe.

11 years agoperf_counter tools: Reduce perf stat measurement overhead/skew
Paul Mackerras [Mon, 29 Jun 2009 11:13:21 +0000]
perf_counter tools: Reduce perf stat measurement overhead/skew

Vince Weaver reported a 'perf stat' measurement overhead in the
count of retired instructions, which can amount to a +6000
instructions inflated count in the reported count.

At present, perf stat creates its counters on the perf process.  Thus
the counters count the fork and various other activity in both the
parent and child, such as the resolver overhead for resolving PLT
entries for any libc functions that haven't been called before, such
as execvp.

This reduces the overhead by creating the counters on the child process
after the fork, using a couple of pipes to synchronize so that the
child process waits until the parent has created the counters before
doing the exec.  To eliminate the PLT resolution overhead on calling
execvp, this does a dummy execvp first which will always fail.

With this, the overhead of executing a program goes down from over
4800 instructions to about 90 instructions on powerpc (32-bit).
This was measured with a statically-linked program written in
assembler which only does the 3 instructions needed to call _exit(0).

Before:

$ perf stat -e 0:1:u ./three

 Performance counter stats for './three':

           4858  instructions

    0.001274523  seconds time elapsed

After:

$ perf stat -e 0:1:u ./three

 Performance counter stats for './three':

             92  instructions

    0.000468153  seconds time elapsed

tty: Fix the leak in tty_ldisc_release

Currently we reinit the ldisc on final tty close which is what the old code
did to ensure that if the device retained its termios settings then it had the
right ldisc. tty_ldisc_reinit does that but also leaves us with the reset
ldisc reference which is then leaked.

At this point we know the port will be recycled so we can kill the ldisc
off completely rather than try and add another ldisc free up when the kref
count hits zero.

At this point it is safe to keep the ldisc closed as tty_ldisc waiting
methods are only used from the user side, and as the final close we are
the last such reference. Interrupt/driver side methods will always use the
non wait version and get back a NULL.

11 years agofs: allow d_instantiate to be called with negative parent dentry
Jeremy Kerr [Mon, 29 Jun 2009 06:31:58 +0000]
fs: allow d_instantiate to be called with negative parent dentry

The new fsnotify infrastructure (starting at 90586523) causes an oops in
spufs, where we populate a directory with files before instantiating the
directory itself. The new changes seem to have introduced an assumption
that a dentry's parent will be positive when instantiating.

This change makes it once again possible to d_instantiate a dentry
with a negative parent, and brings __fsnotify_d_instantiate() into
line with inotify_d_instantiate(), which already has this NULL check.

KVM: s390: Allow stfle instruction in the guest

2.6.31-rc introduced an architecture level set checker based on facility
bits. e.g. if the kernel is compiled to run only on z9, several facility
bits are checked very early and the kernel refuses to boot if a z9 specific
facility is missing.
Until now kvm on s390 did not implement the store facility extended (STFLE)
instruction. A 2.6.31-rc kernel that was compiled for z9 or higher did not
boot in kvm. This patch implements stfle.

This patch should go in before 2.6.31.
