12 years agocan: add sanity checks
Oliver Hartkopp [Sun, 6 Jul 2008 06:38:43 +0000]
can: add sanity checks

Even though the CAN netlayer only deals with CAN netdevices, the
netlayer interface to the userspace and to the device layer should
perform some sanity checks.

This patch adds several sanity checks that mainly prevent userspace apps
to send broken content into the system that may be misinterpreted by
some other userspace application.

This is caused by the following snippet in nv_set_settings:

netif_carrier_off(dev);
if (netif_running(dev)) {
nv_disable_irq(dev);
netif_tx_lock_bh(dev);
spin_lock(&np->lock);
/* stop engines */
nv_stop_rxtx(dev);
spin_unlock(&np->lock);
netif_tx_unlock_bh(dev);
}

Because of nv_disable_irq this is probably not really a problem
though (I guess) and replacing the spin_lock with spin_lock_irqsave
could keep interrupts disabled for a longer period of time because
of delays in nv_stop_rx and nv_stop_tx.

Add missing skb->dev assignment in Frame Relay RX code

eth_type_trans set skb->dev like the other *_type_trans) removed
skb->dev assignment from hdlc_fr.c:fr_rx(). Unfortunately it was also
needed for cases other than eth_type_trans().

Adding it back.

It's quite serious and may be a security risk as it causes a wrong
input interface indication (the physical hdlcX instead of logical
pvcX). Probably -stable class fix.

bridge: fix use-after-free in br_cleanup_bridges()

Unregistering a bridge device may cause virtual devices stacked on the
bridge, like vlan or macvlan devices, to be unregistered as well.
br_cleanup_bridges() uses for_each_netdev_safe() to iterate over all
devices during cleanup. This is not enough however, if one of the
additionally unregistered devices is next in the list to the bridge
device, it will get freed as well and the iteration continues on
the freed element.

Restart iteration after each bridge device removal from the beginning to
fix this, similar to what rtnl_link_unregister() does.

Alex Chiang [Wed, 2 Jul 2008 02:02:23 +0000]
PCI: acpiphp: cleanup notify handler on all root bridges

During the development of the physical PCI slot patch series, Gary Hade
kept on reporting strange oopses due to interactions between pci_slot
and acpiphp.

http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/11/28/319

find_root_bridges() unconditionally installs
handle_hotplug_event_bridge() as an ACPI_SYSTEM_NOTIFY handler for all
root bridges.

However, during module cleanup, remove_bridge() will only remove the
notify handler iff the root bridge had a hot-pluggable slot directly
underneath. That is:

root bridge -> hotplug slot

But, if the topology looks like either of the following:

root bridge -> non-hotplug slot
root bridge -> p2p bridge -> hotplug slot

Then we currently do not remove the notify handler from that root
bridge.

This can cause a kernel oops if we modprobe acpiphp later and it gets
loaded somewhere else in memory. If the root bridge then receives a
hotplug event, it will then attempt to call a stale, non-existent notify
handler and we blow up.

Much thanks goes to Gary Hade for his persistent debugging efforts.

PCI: Limit VPD read/write lengths for Broadcom 5706, 5708, 5709 rev.

For Broadcom 5706, 5708, 5709 rev. A nics, any read beyond the
VPD end tag will hang the device.  This problem was initially
observed when a vpd entry was created in sysfs
('/sys/bus/pci/devices/<id>/vpd').   A read to this sysfs entry
will dump 32k of data.  Reading a full 32k will cause an access
beyond the VPD end tag causing the device to hang.  Once the device
is hung, the bnx2 driver will not be able to reset the device.
We believe that it is legal to read beyond the end tag and
therefore the solution is to limit the read/write length.

A majority of this patch is from Matthew Wilcox who gave code for
reworking the PCI vpd size information.  A PCI quirk added for the
Broadcom NIC's to limit the read/write's.

rcu: fix hotplug vs rcu race

Dhaval Giani reported this warning during cpu hotplug stress-tests:

| On running kernel compiles in parallel with cpu hotplug:
|

|  [<c016fd99>] filp_close+0x4d/0x57
|  [<c016fdff>] sys_close+0x5c/0x97

IMHO the warning is a spurious one.

cpu_online_map is updated by the _cpu_down() using stop_machine_run().
Since force_quiescent_state is invoked from irqs disabled section,
stop_machine_run() won't be executing while a cpu is executing
force_quiescent_state(). Hence the cpu_online_map is stable while we're
in the irq disabled section.

However, a cpu might have been offlined _just_ before we disabled irqs
while entering force_quiescent_state(). And rcu subsystem might not yet
have handled the CPU_DEAD notification, leading to the offlined cpu's
bit being set in the rcp->cpumask.

Hence cpumask = (rcp->cpumask & cpu_online_map) to prevent sending
smp_reschedule() to an offlined CPU.

Here's the timeline:

CPU_A  CPU_B
--------------------------------------------------------------
cpu_down(): .
.     .
. .
stop_machine(): /* disables preemption, .
 * and irqs */ .
. .
. .
take_cpu_down(); .
. .
. .
. .
cpu_disable(); /*this removes cpu  .
*from cpu_online_map  .
*/ .
. .
. .
restart_machine(); /* enables irqs */ .
------WINDOW DURING WHICH rcp->cpumask is stale ---------------
. call_rcu();
. /* disables irqs here */
. .force_quiescent_state();
.CPU_DEAD: .for_each_cpu(rcp->cpumask)
. .   smp_send_reschedule();
. .
. .   WARN_ON() for offlined CPU!
.
.
.
rcu_cpu_notify:
.
-------- WINDOW ENDS ------------------------------------------
rcu_offline_cpu() /* Which calls cpu_quiet()
   * which removes
   * cpu from rcp->cpumask.
   */

If a new batch was started just before calling stop_machine_run(), the
"tobe-offlined" cpu is still present in rcp-cpumask.

During a cpu-offline, from take_cpu_down(), we queue an rt-prio idle
task as the next task to be picked by the scheduler. We also call
cpu_disable() which will disable any further interrupts and remove the
cpu's bit from the cpu_online_map.

Once the stop_machine_run() successfully calls take_cpu_down(), it calls
schedule(). That's the last time a schedule is called on the offlined
cpu, and hence the last time when rdp->passed_quiesc will be set to 1
through rcu_qsctr_inc().

But the cpu_quiet() will be on this cpu will be called only when the
next RCU_SOFTIRQ occurs on this CPU. So at this time, the offlined CPU
is still set in rcp->cpumask.

Now coming back to the idle_task which truely offlines the CPU, it does
check for a pending RCU and raises the softirq, since it will find
rdp->passed_quiesc to be 0 in this case. However, since the cpu is
offline I am not sure if the softirq will trigger on the CPU.

Even if it doesn't the rcu_offline_cpu() will find that rcp->completed
is not the same as rcp->cur, which means that our cpu could be holding
up the grace period progression. Hence we call cpu_quiet() and move
ahead.

But because of the window explained in the timeline, we could still have
a call_rcu() before the RCU subsystem executes it's CPU_DEAD
notification, and we send smp_send_reschedule() to offlined cpu while
trying to force the quiescent states. The appended patch adds comments
and prevents checking for offlined cpu everytime.

cpu_online_map is updated by the _cpu_down() using stop_machine_run().
Since force_quiescent_state is invoked from irqs disabled section,
stop_machine_run() won't be executing while a cpu is executing
force_quiescent_state(). Hence the cpu_online_map is stable while we're
in the irq disabled section.

12 years agoProperly notify block layer of sync writes
Jens Axboe [Tue, 1 Jul 2008 07:07:34 +0000]
Properly notify block layer of sync writes

fsync_buffers_list() and sync_dirty_buffer() both issue async writes and
then immediately wait on them. Conceptually, that makes them sync writes
and we should treat them as such so that the IO schedulers can handle
them appropriately.

This patch fixes a write starvation issue that Lin Ming reported, where
xx is stuck for more than 2 minutes because of a large number of
synchronous IO in the system:

12 years agoblock: Fix the starving writes bug in the anticipatory IO scheduler
Divyesh Shah [Mon, 16 Jun 2008 16:37:08 +0000]
block: Fix the starving writes bug in the anticipatory IO scheduler

AS scheduler alternates between issuing read and write batches. It does
the batch switch only after all requests from the previous batch are
completed.

When switching to a write batch, if there is an on-going read request,
it waits for its completion and indicates its intention of switching by
setting ad->changed_batch and the new direction but does not update the
batch_expire_time for the new write batch which it does in the case of
no previous pending requests.
On completion of the read request, it sees that we were waiting for the
switch and schedules work for kblockd right away and resets the
ad->changed_data flag.
Now when kblockd enters dispatch_request where it is expected to pick
up a write request, it in turn ends the write batch because the
batch_expire_timer was not updated and shows the expire timestamp for
the previous batch.

This results in the write starvation for all the cases where there is
the intention for switching to a write batch, but there is a previous
in-flight read request and the batch gets reverted to a read_batch
right away.

This also holds true in the reverse case (switching from a write batch
to a read batch with an in-flight write request).

I've checked that this bug exists on 2.6.11, 2.6.18, 2.6.24 and
linux-2.6-block git HEAD. I've tested the fix on x86 platforms with
SCSI drives where the driver asks for the next request while a current
request is in-flight.

This patch is based off linux-2.6-block git HEAD.

Bug reproduction:
A simple scenario which reproduces this bug is:
- dd if=/dev/hda3 of=/dev/null &
- lilo
   The lilo takes forever to complete.

This can also be reproduced fairly easily with the earlier dd and
another test
program doing msync().

The example test program below should print out a message after every
iteration
but it simply hangs forever. With this bugfix it makes forward progress.

Jozsef Kadlecsik [Mon, 30 Jun 2008 19:41:30 +0000]
netfilter: nf_conntrack_tcp: fixing to check the lower bound of valid ACK

Lost connections was reported by Thomas B√§tzler (running 2.6.25 kernel) on
the netfilter mailing list (see the thread "Weird nat/conntrack Problem
with PASV FTP upload"). He provided tcpdump recordings which helped to
find a long lingering bug in conntrack.

In TCP connection tracking, checking the lower bound of valid ACK could
lead to mark valid packets as INVALID because:

 - We have got a "higher or equal" inequality, but the test checked
   the "higher" condition only; fixed.
 - If the packet contains a SACK option, it could occur that the ACK
   value was before the left edge of our (S)ACK "window": if a previous
   packet from the other party intersected the right edge of the window
   of the receiver, we could move forward the window parameters beyond
   accepting a valid ack. Therefore in this patch we check the rightmost
   SACK edge instead of the ACK value in the lower bound of valid (S)ACK
   test.

Input: fix locking in force-feedback core

The newly added event_lock spinlock in the input core disallows sleeping
and therefore using mutexes in event handlers. Convert force-feedback
core to rely on event_lock instead of mutex to protect slots allocated
for fore-feedback effects. The original mutex is still used to serialize

12 years agox86: fix cpu hotplug crash
Zhang, Yanmin [Tue, 24 Jun 2008 08:06:23 +0000]
x86: fix cpu hotplug crash

Vegard Nossum reported crashes during cpu hotplug tests:

  http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=121413950227884&w=4

In function _cpu_up, the panic happens when calling
__raw_notifier_call_chain at the second time. Kernel doesn't panic when
calling it at the first time. If just say because of nr_cpu_ids, that's
not right.

By checking the source code, I found that function do_boot_cpu is the culprit.
Consider below call chain:
 _cpu_up=>__cpu_up=>smp_ops.cpu_up=>native_cpu_up=>do_boot_cpu.

So do_boot_cpu is called in the end. In do_boot_cpu, if
boot_error==true, cpu_clear(cpu, cpu_possible_map) is executed. So later
on, when _cpu_up calls __raw_notifier_call_chain at the second time to
report CPU_UP_CANCELED, because this cpu is already cleared from
cpu_possible_map, get_cpu_sysdev returns NULL.

Many resources are related to cpu_possible_map, so it's better not to
change it.

Below patch against 2.6.26-rc7 fixes it by removing the bit clearing in
cpu_possible_map.

sched: fix cpu hotplug

the CPU hotplug problems (crashes under high-volume unplug+replug
tests) seem to be related to migrate_dead_tasks().

Firstly I added traces to see all tasks being migrated with
migrate_live_tasks() and migrate_dead_tasks(). On my setup the problem
pops up (the one with "se == NULL" in the loop of
pick_next_task_fair()) shortly after the traces indicate that some has
been migrated with migrate_dead_tasks()). btw., I can reproduce it
much faster now with just a plain cpu down/up loop.

[disclaimer] Well, unless I'm really missing something important in
this late hour [/desclaimer] pick_next_task() is not something
appropriate for migrate_dead_tasks() :-)

the following change seems to eliminate the problem on my setup
(although, I kept it running only for a few minutes to get a few
messages indicating migrate_dead_tasks() does move tasks and the
system is still ok)

... you will notice that the entry for the IPv6 localhost address is not

I got a problem when I wanted to check if the kernel supports process
event connector, and It seems there's no way to do this check.

At best I can check if the kernel supports connector or not, by looking
into /proc/net/netlink, or maybe checking the return value of bind() to
see if it's ENOENT.

So it would be useful to add /proc/net/connector to list all supported
connectors:
 # cat /proc/net/connector
 Name            ID
 connector       4294967295:4294967295
 cn_proc         1:1
 w1              3:1
