Steven Whitehouse [Fri, 31 Mar 2006 20:01:28 +0000]
[GFS2] Update ioctl() to new interface

This is designed as a fs independent way to set flags on a
particular inode. The values of the ioctl() and flags are
designed to be identical to the ext2/3 values. Assuming that
this plan is acceptable to people in general, the plan is to
then move other fs across to using the same set of #defines,
etc.

14 years ago[PATCH] Introduce sys_splice() system call
Jens Axboe [Thu, 30 Mar 2006 13:15:30 +0000]
[PATCH] Introduce sys_splice() system call

This adds support for the sys_splice system call. Using a pipe as a
transport, it can connect to files or sockets (latter as output only).

From the splice.c comments:

   "splice": joining two ropes together by interweaving their strands.

   This is the "extended pipe" functionality, where a pipe is used as
   an arbitrary in-memory buffer. Think of a pipe as a small kernel
   buffer that you can use to transfer data from one end to the other.

   The traditional unix read/write is extended with a "splice()" operation
   that transfers data buffers to or from a pipe buffer.

   Named by Larry McVoy, original implementation from Linus, extended by
   Jens to support splicing to files and fixing the initial implementation
   bugs.

(1) A DMA transfer size of 0x10000 was not being written

(1) The DEV_IRQ interrupt cause bit happens spuriously
during EDMA operation, and was not being ignored by the driver.
This led to various "drive busy" errors being reported,
with associated unpredictable behaviour.  Fixed.

(2) If a SATA or PCI interrupt was received with no outstanding
command, the interrupt handler still attempted to invoke
ata_qc_complete(), triggering assert()/BUG_ON() behaviour
elsewhere in libata.  Fixed.

Alan Cox [Mon, 27 Mar 2006 17:58:20 +0000]
[PATCH] libata: Simplex and other mode filtering logic

Add a field to the host_set called 'flags' (was host_set_flags changed
to suit Jeff)
Add a simplex_claimed field so we can remember who owns the DMA channel
Add a ->mode_filter() hook to allow drivers to filter modes
Add docs for mode_filter and set_mode
Filter according to simplex state
Filter cable in core

This provides the needed framework to support all the mode rules found
in the PATA world. The simplex filter deals with 'to spec' simplex DMA
systems found in older chips. The cable filter avoids duplicating the
same rules in each chip driver with PATA. Finally the mode filter is
neccessary because drive/chip combinations have errata that forbid
certain modes with some drives or types of ATA object.

Drive speed setup remains per channel for now and the filters now use
the framework Tejun put into place which cleans them up a lot from the
older libata-pata patches.

Alan Cox [Mon, 27 Mar 2006 17:42:40 +0000]
[PATCH] libata: BMDMA handling updates

This is the minimal patch set to enable the current code to be used with
a controller following SFF (ie any PATA and early SATA controllers)
safely without crashes if there is no BMDMA area or if BMDMA is not
assigned by the BIOS for some reason.

Simplex status is recorded but not acted upon in this change, this isn't
a problem with the current drivers as none of them are for simplex
hardware. A following diff will deal with that.

The flags in the probe structure remain ->host_set_flags although Jeff
asked me to rename them, simply because the rename would break the usual
Linux rules that old code should break when there are changes. not
compile and run and then blow up/eat your computer/etc. Renaming this
later is a trivial exercise once a better name is chosen.

[PATCH] for_each_possible_cpu: ppc

for_each_cpu() actually iterates across all possible CPUs.  We've had mistakes
in the past where people were using for_each_cpu() where they should have been
iterating across only online or present CPUs.  This is inefficient and
possibly buggy.

We're renaming for_each_cpu() to for_each_possible_cpu() to avoid this in the
future.

This patch replaces for_each_cpu with for_each_possible_cpu.

Fix 44x and BookE page fault handler to correctly lock PTE before
trying to pte_update() it, otherwise this PTE might be swapped out
after pte_present() check but before pte_uptdate() call, resulting in

Oleg Nesterov [Wed, 29 Mar 2006 00:11:30 +0000]
[PATCH] send_sigqueue: simplify and fix the race

send_sigqueue() checks PF_EXITING, then locks p->sighand->siglock.  This is
unsafe: 'p' can exit in between and set ->sighand = NULL.  The race is
theoretical, the window is tiny and irqs are disabled by the caller, so I
don't think we need the fix for -stable tree.

Convert send_sigqueue() to use lock_task_sighand() helper.

Also, delete 'p->flags & PF_EXITING' re-check, it is unneeded and the
comment is wrong.

Oleg Nesterov [Wed, 29 Mar 2006 00:11:28 +0000]
[PATCH] simplify do_signal_stop()

do_signal_stop() considers 'thread_group_empty()' as a special case.
This was needed to avoid taking tasklist_lock. Since this lock is
unneeded any longer, we can remove this special case and simplify
the code even more.

Also, before this patch, finish_stop() was called with stop_count == -1
for 'thread_group_empty()' case. This is not strictly wrong, but confusing
and unneeded.

This also means that SIGSTOP or sig_kernel_coredump() signal can't
be delivered to pgrp/session reliably.

With this patch copy_process() returns -ERESTARTNOINTR when it
detects a pending signal, fork() will be restarted transparently
after handling the signals.

This patch also deletes now unneeded "group_stop_count > 0" check,
copy_process() can no longer succeed while group stop in progress.

[PATCH] pids: kill PIDTYPE_TGID

This patch kills PIDTYPE_TGID pid_type thus saving one hash table in
kernel/pid.c and speeding up subthreads create/destroy a bit.  It is also a
preparation for the further tref/pids rework.

This patch adds 'struct list_head thread_group' to 'struct task_struct'
instead.

We don't detach group leader from PIDTYPE_PID namespace until another
thread inherits it's ->pid == ->tgid, so we are safe wrt premature
free_pidmap(->tgid) call.

Currently there are no users of find_task_by_pid_type(PIDTYPE_TGID).
Should the need arise, we can use find_task_by_pid()->group_leader.

[PATCH] do __unhash_process() under ->siglock

This patch moves __unhash_process() call from realease_task() to
__exit_signal(), so __detach_pid() is called with ->siglock held.

This means we don't need tasklist_lock to iterate over thread group anymore:

copy_process() was already changed to do attach_pid()
under ->siglock.

Eric's "pidhash-kill-switch_exec_pids.patch" from -mm
changed de_thread() so it doesn't touch PIDTYPE_TGID.

NOTE: de_thread() still needs some attention.  It still changes task->pid
lockless.  Taking ->sighand.siglock here allows to do more tasklist_lock
removals.

[PATCH] copy_process: cleanup bad_fork_cleanup_signal

__exit_signal() does important cleanups atomically under ->siglock.  It is
also called from copy_process's error path.  This is not good, for example we
can't move __unhash_process() under ->siglock for that reason.

We should not mix these 2 paths, just look at ugly 'if (p->sighand)' under
'bad_fork_cleanup_sighand:' label.  For copy_process() case it is sufficient
to just backout copy_signal(), nothing more.

Again, nobody can see this task yet.  For CLONE_THREAD case we just decrement
signal->count, otherwise nobody can see this ->signal and we can free it
lockless.

This patch assumes it is safe to do exit_thread_group_keys() without
tasklist_lock.

This 'tsk' was not yet registered in pid_hash[] or init_task.tasks, it has no

IF (clone_flags & CLONE_SIGHAND)
At least 'current' has a reference to ->sighand, this
means atomic_dec_and_test(sighand->count) can't be true.

ELSE
Nobody can see this ->sighand, this means we can free it
