[S390] cio: introduce cio_settle

This patch introduces a proc file cio_settle. A write request to
this file is blocked until all queued cio actions are handled.

This will allow userspace to wait for pending work affecting
device availability after changing cio_ignore or the hardware
configuration.

[S390] cio: consolidate workqueues

We used to maintain 2 singlethreaded workqueues for synchronization
and to trigger work from interrupt context. Since our latest cio
changes we only use one of these workqueues. So get rid of the
unused workqueue, rename the remaining one to "cio_work_q" and move
its ownership to the channel subsystem driver.

9 years agoLower USB storage settling delay to something more reasonable
Linus Torvalds [Fri, 26 Feb 2010 18:03:22 +0000]
Lower USB storage settling delay to something more reasonable

The five-second delay can be rather annoying, and makes the system
appear much less responsive when you connect a USB drive.

It's also not entirely clear that it is needed - the settling delay has
at least historically been an issue on some Apple iPods, for example,
and some devices have been reported to need even more than the old 5s
delay.

But before we penalize them all, let's see how bad it really is.  Some
of the reasons for long delays seem to be actual historical kernel bugs
that should probably never have been papered over with a delay in the
first place (there's a Ubuntu bug report for 2.6.20 about a NULL pointer
dereference unless 'delay_use' is 8 or more, for example).

It also looks like some distros have already shipped with delay_use=0,
so the five second default may well be totally historical.

In other words: "Let's see if anybody screams".

9 years agox86/PCI: Prevent mmconfig memory corruption
Thomas Gleixner [Thu, 25 Feb 2010 15:42:11 +0000]
x86/PCI: Prevent mmconfig memory corruption

commit ff097ddd4 (x86/PCI: MMCONFIG: manage pci_mmcfg_region as a
list, not a table) introduced a nasty memory corruption when
pci_mmcfg_list is empty.

pci_mmcfg_check_end_bus_number() dereferences pci_mmcfg_list.prev even
when the list is empty. The following write hits some variable near to
pci_mmcfg_list.

Further down a similar problem exists, where cfg->list.next is
dereferenced unconditionally and a comparison with some variable near
to pci_mmcfg_list happens.

Add a check for the last element into the for_each_entry() loop and
remove all the other crappy logic which is just a leftover of the old
array based code which was replaced by the list conversion.

ahci: disable FPDMA auto-activate optimization on NVIDIA AHCI

Mike Cui reported that his system with an NVIDIA MCP79 (aka MCP7A)
chipset stopped working with 2.6.32. The problem appears to be that
2.6.32 now enables the FPDMA auto-activate optimization in the ahci
driver. The drive works fine with this enabled on an Intel AHCI so
this appears to be a chipset bug.  Since MCP79 is a fairly recent
NVIDIA chipset and we don't have any info on whether any other NVIDIA
chipsets have this issue, disable FPDMA AA optimization on all NVIDIA
AHCI controllers for now.

To fix a bug and address the reviewers' comments regarding the ACPI

o Remove the second argument of acpi_ev_enable_gpe(),

o Add the "bad parameter" test against 'type' in

o Make acpi_enable_gpe() only check 'status' for runtime GPEs if
  acpi_ev_enable_gpe() was actually called.

o Make acpi_disable_gpe() return 'status' returned by

  and ACPI_GPE_TYPE_RUNTIME were exchanged by mistake.

I create wrong asm code but none test shows that this part of code is wrong.
I am not convinces that were good idea to create asm optimized macros
for caches. The reason is that there is not optimization with previous code
that's why make sense to add old code and do some benchmarking which

virtio: console: Add a new MULTIPORT feature, support for generic ports

This commit adds a new feature, MULTIPORT. If the host supports this
feature as well, the config space has the number of ports defined for
that device. New ports are spawned according to this information.

The config space also has the maximum number of ports that can be
spawned for a particular device. This is useful in initializing the
appropriate number of virtqueues in advance, as ports might be
hot-plugged in later.

Using this feature, generic ports can be created which are not tied to
hvc consoles.

We also open up a private channel between the host and the guest via
which some "control" messages are exchanged for the ports, like whether
the port being spawned is a console port, resizing the console window,
etc.

virtio: use smp_XX barriers on SMP

virtio is communicating with a virtual "device" that actually runs on
another host processor. Thus SMP barriers can be used to control
memory access ordering.

Where possible, we should use SMP barriers which are more lightweight than
mandatory barriers, because mandatory barriers also control MMIO effects on
accesses through relaxed memory I/O windows (which virtio does not use)
(compare specifically smp_rmb and rmb on x86_64).

We can't just use smp_mb and friends though, because
we must force memory ordering even if guest is UP since host could be
running on another CPU, but SMP barriers are defined to barrier() in
that configuration. So, for UP fall back to mandatory barriers instead.

timely update of the ->in_use flag.

But they're voodoo: if we need these barriers it implies that the
calling code doesn't have sufficient synchronization to ensure the
code paths aren't invoked at the same time anyway, and we want to

Adam Litke [Thu, 10 Dec 2009 22:35:15 +0000]
virtio: Fix scheduling while atomic in virtio_balloon stats

This is a fix for my earlier patch: "virtio: Add memory statistics reporting to
the balloon driver (V4)".

I discovered that all_vm_events() can sleep and therefore stats collection
cannot be done in interrupt context.  One solution is to handle the interrupt
by noting that stats need to be collected and waking the existing vballoon
kthread which will complete the work via stats_handle_request().  Rusty, is
this a saner way of doing business?

There is one issue that I would like a broader opinion on.  In stats_request, I
update vb->need_stats_update and then wake up the kthread.  The kthread uses
vb->need_stats_update as a condition variable.  Do I need a memory barrier
between the update and wake_up to ensure that my kthread sees the correct
value?  My testing suggests that it is not needed but I would like some
confirmation from the experts.

9 years agovirtio: Add memory statistics reporting to the balloon driver (V4)
Adam Litke [Mon, 30 Nov 2009 16:14:15 +0000]
virtio: Add memory statistics reporting to the balloon driver (V4)

Changes since V3:
 - Do not do endian conversions as they will be done in the host
 - Report stats that reference a quantity of memory in bytes
 - Minor coding style updates

Changes since V2:
 - Increase stat field size to 64 bits
 - Report all sizes in kb (not pages)
 - Drop anon_pages stat and fix endianness conversion

Changes since V1:
 - Use a virtqueue instead of the device config space

When using ballooning to manage overcommitted memory on a host, a system for
guests to communicate their memory usage to the host can provide information
that will minimize the impact of ballooning on the guests.  The current method
employs a daemon running in each guest that communicates memory statistics to a
host daemon at a specified time interval.  The host daemon aggregates this
information and inflates and/or deflates balloons according to the level of
host memory pressure.  This approach is effective but overly complex since a
daemon must be installed inside each guest and coordinated to communicate with
the host.  A simpler approach is to collect memory statistics in the virtio
balloon driver and communicate them directly to the hypervisor.

This patch enables the guest-side support by adding stats collection and
reporting to the virtio balloon driver.

Ajit Khaparde [Tue, 16 Feb 2010 20:25:43 +0000]
net: bug fix for vlan + gro issue

Traffic (tcp) doesnot start on a vlan interface when gro is enabled.
Even the tcp handshake was not taking place.
This is because, the eth_type_trans call before the netif_receive_skb
in napi_gro_finish() resets the skb->dev to napi->dev from the previously
set vlan netdev interface. This causes the ip_route_input to drop the
incoming packet considering it as a packet coming from a martian source.

I could repro this on 2.6.32.7 (stable) and 2.6.33-rc7.
With this fix, the traffic starts and the test runs fine on both vlan
and non-vlan interfaces.

x86/PCI: use host bridge _CRS info by default on 2008 and newer machines

The main benefit of using ACPI host bridge window information is that
we can do better resource allocation in systems with multiple host bridges,
e.g., http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14183

Sometimes we need _CRS information even if we only have one host bridge,
e.g., https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/341681

Most of these systems are relatively new, so this patch turns on
"pci=use_crs" only on machines with a BIOS date of 2008 or newer.

Bjorn Helgaas [Tue, 23 Feb 2010 17:24:36 +0000]
PCI: augment bus resource table with a list

Previously we used a table of size PCI_BUS_NUM_RESOURCES (16) for resources
forwarded to a bus by its upstream bridge.  We've increased this size
several times when the table overflowed.

But there's no good limit on the number of resources because host bridges
and subtractive decode bridges can forward any number of ranges to their
secondary buses.

This patch reduces the table to only PCI_BRIDGE_RESOURCE_NUM (4) entries,
which corresponds to the number of windows a PCI-to-PCI (3) or CardBus (4)
bridge can positively decode.  Any additional resources, e.g., PCI host
bridge windows or subtractively-decoded regions, are kept in a list.

I'd prefer a single list rather than this split table/list approach, but
that requires simultaneous changes to every architecture.  This approach
only requires immediate changes where we set up (a) host bridges with more
than four windows and (b) subtractive-decode P2P bridges, and we can
incrementally change other architectures to use the list.

tc35815: Remove a wrong netif_wake_queue() call which triggers BUG_ON

The netif_wake_queue() is called correctly (i.e. only on !txfull
condition) from txdone routine.  So Unconditional call to the
netif_wake_queue() here is wrong.  This might cause calling of
start_xmit routine on txfull state and trigger BUG_ON.

This bug does not happen when NAPI disabled.  After txdone there
must be at least one free tx slot.  But with NAPI, this is not
true anymore and the BUG_ON can hits on heavy load.

In this driver NAPI was enabled on 2.6.33-rc1 so this is
regression from 2.6.32 kernel.

efifb: fix framebuffer handoff

Commit 4410f3910947dcea8672280b3adecd53cec4e85e ("fbdev: add support for
handoff from firmware to hw framebuffers") didn't add fb_destroy
operation to efifb.  Fix it and change aperture_size to match size
passed to request_mem_region.

geode-mfgpt: restore previous behavior for selecting IRQ

geode-mfgpt: restore previous behavior for selecting IRQ

The MFGPT IRQ used to be, in order of decreasing priority,
 * IRQ supplied by the user as a boot-time parameter,
 * IRQ previously set by the BIOS or another driver,
 * default IRQ given at compile time.

Return to this behavior, which got broken when splitting the
MFGPT/clocksource driver for 2.6.33-rc1.

9 years agoidr: fix a critical misallocation bug, take#2
Tejun Heo [Mon, 22 Feb 2010 20:44:19 +0000]
idr: fix a critical misallocation bug, take#2

This is retry of reverted 859ddf09743a8cc680af33f7259ccd0fd36bfe9d
("idr: fix a critical misallocation bug") which contained two bugs.

* pa[idp->layers] should be cleared even if it's not used by
  sub_alloc() because it's used by mark idr_mark_full().

* The original condition check also assigned pa[l] to p which the new
  code didn't do thus leaving p pointing at the wrong layer.

Both problems have been fixed and the idr code has received good amount
testing using userland testing setup where simple bitmap allocator is
run parallel to verify the result of idr allocation.

The bug this patch fixes is caused by sub_alloc() optimization path
bypassing out-of-room condition check and restarting allocation loop
with starting value higher than maximum allowed value.  For detailed
description, please read commit message of 859ddf09.

kernel/sys.c: fix missing rcu protection for sys_getpriority()

find_task_by_vpid() is not safe without rcu_read_lock().  2.6.33-rc7 got
RCU protection for sys_setpriority() but missed it for sys_getpriority().
