[PATCH] vesafb: Fix incorrect logo colors in x86_64

Bugzilla Bug 6299:

A pixel size of 8 bits produces wrong logo colors in x86_64.

The driver has 2 methods for setting the color map, using the protected
mode interface provided by the video BIOS and directly writing to the VGA
registers.  The former is not supported in x86_64 and the latter is enabled
only in i386.

Fix by enabling the latter method in x86_64 only if supported by the BIOS.
If both methods are unsupported, change the visual of vesafb to
STATIC_PSEUDOCOLOR.

[PATCH] knfsd: svcrpc: WARN() instead of returning an error from svc_take_page

Every caller of svc_take_page ignores its return value and assumes it
succeeded.  So just WARN() instead of returning an ignored error.  This would
have saved some time debugging a recent nfsd4 problem.

If there are still failure cases here, then the result is probably that we
overwrite an earlier part of the reply while xdr-encoding.

While the corrupted reply is a nasty bug, it would be worse to panic here and
create the possibility of a remote DOS; hence WARN() instead of BUG().

[PATCH] knfsd: nfsd: nfsd_setuser doesn't really need to modify rqstp->rq_cred.

In addition to setting the processes filesystem id's, nfsd_setuser also
modifies the value of the rq_cred which stores the id's that originally came
from the rpc call, for example to reflect root squashing.

There's no real reason to do that--the only case where rqstp->rq_cred is
actually used later on is in the NFSv4 SETCLIENTID/SETCLIENTID_CONFIRM
operations, and there the results are the opposite of what we want--those two
operations don't deal with the filesystem at all, they only record the
credentials used with the rpc call for later reference (so that we may require
the same credentials be used on later operations), and the credentials
shouldn't vary just because there was or wasn't a previous operation in the
compound that referred to some export

This fixes a bug which caused mounts from Solaris clients to fail.

Export a directory that does not exist:

Try to mount from client with nfs4. Mount hangs (I'm not sure why -
that's another issue).

While client is hung, back on server

mkdir /home/NFS4

calling path_release() even though path_lookup() failed (it happens to fill in
the nameidata structure with a negative dentry - so the test after out:
succeeds).

After patching, an recreating the problem, the client mount still takes some
time before finally exiting with a message "couldn't read superblock".

Here is a simple patch to resolve this issue:

[PATCH] knfsd: nfsd4: fix acl xattr length return

We should be using the length from the second vfs_getxattr, in case it
changed.  (Note: there's still a small race here; we could end up returning
-ENOMEM if the length increased between the first and second call.  I don't
know whether it's worth spending a lot of effort to fix that.)

This makes XFS ACLs usable on NFS exports, which they currently aren't, since
XFS appears to be returning a too-large value for vfs_getxattr() when it's
passed a NULL buffer.  So there's probably an XFS bug here too, though since
getxattr with a NULL buffer is usually used to decide how much memory to
allocate, it may be a fairly harmless bug in most cases.

[PATCH] knfsd: locks: flag NFSv4-owned locks

Use the fl_lmops field to identify which locks are ours, instead of trying to
look them up in our private hash.  This is safer and more efficient.

Earlier versions of this patch used a lock flag instead, but Trond pointed out
that adding a new flag for each lock manager wasn't going to scale well, and
suggested this approach instead; a separate patch converts lockd to using
fl_lmops in the same way.

In the NFSv4 case this looks like a bit of a hack, since the NFSv4 server
isn't currently actually defining a lock_manager_operations struct, so we end
up defining one *just* to serve as a cookie to identify our locks.

But it works, and we actually do expect to start using the
lock_manager_operations at some point anyway.

NFSd makes sure there is enough space to hold the maximum possible reply
before accepting a request.  The units for this maximum is (4byte) words.
However in three places, particularly for read request, the number given is
a number of bytes.

This means too much space is reserved which is slightly wasteful.

This is the sort of patch that could uncover a deeper bug, and it is not
critical, so it would be best for it to spend a while in -mm before going

13 years ago[PATCH] fuse: account background requests
Miklos Szeredi [Tue, 11 Apr 2006 05:54:59 +0000]
[PATCH] fuse: account background requests

The previous patch removed limiting the number of outstanding requests.  This
patch adds a much simpler limiting, that is also compatible with file locking
operations.

A task may have at most one synchronous request allocated.  So these requests
need not be otherwise limited.

However the number of background requests (release, forget, asynchronous
reads, interrupted requests) can grow indefinitely.  This can be used by a
malicous user to cause FUSE to allocate arbitrary amounts of unswappable
kernel memory, denying service.

For this reason add a limit for the number of background requests, and block
allocations of new requests until the number goes bellow the limit.

Also use this mechanism to block all requests until the INIT reply is
received.

[PATCH] fuse: clean up request accounting

FUSE allocated most requests from a fixed size pool filled at mount time.
However in some cases (release/forget) non-pool requests were used.  File
locking operations aren't well served by the request pool, since they may
block indefinetly thus exhausting the pool.

This patch removes the request pool and always allocates requests on demand.

[PATCH] fuse: simplify locking

This is in preparation for removing the global spinlock in favor of a
per-mount one.

The only critical part is the interaction between fuse_dev_release() and
fuse_fill_super(): fuse_dev_release() must see the assignment to
file->private_data, otherwise it will leak the reference to fuse_conn.

This is ensured by the fput() operation, which will synchronize the assignment
with other CPU's that may do a final fput() soon after this.

Also redundant locking is removed from fuse_fill_super(), where exclusion is
already ensured by the BKL held for this function by the VFS.

Jeff Dike [Tue, 11 Apr 2006 05:54:52 +0000]
[PATCH] fuse: add O_ASYNC support to FUSE device

This adds asynchronous notification to FUSE - a FUSE server can request
O_ASYNC on a /dev/fuse file descriptor and receive SIGIO when there is input
available.

One subtlety - fuse_dev_fasync, which is called when O_ASYNC is requested,
does no locking, unlink the other methods.  I think it's unnecessary, as the
fuse_conn.fasync list is manipulated only by fasync_helper and kill_fasync,
which provide their own locking.  It would also be wrong to use the fuse_lock,
as it's a spin lock and fasync_helper can sleep.  My one concern with this is
the fuse_conn going away underneath fuse_dev_fasync - sys_fcntl takes a
reference on the file struct, so this seems not to be a problem.

[PATCH] fuse: fix oops in fuse_send_readpages()

During heavy parallel filesystem activity it was possible to Oops the kernel.
The reason is that read_cache_pages() could skip pages which have already been
inserted into the cache by another task.  Occasionally this may result in zero
pages actually being sent, while fuse_send_readpages() relies on at least one
page being in the request.

So check this corner case and just free the request instead of trying to send
it.

[PATCH] inotify: check for NULL inode in inotify_d_instantiate

The spufs file system creates files in a directory before instantiating the
directory itself, which causes a NULL pointer access in
inotify_d_instantiate since c32ccd87bfd1414b0aabfcd8dbc7539ad23bcbaa.

I'd like to keep this behavior since it means that the user will not have
access to files in the directory before I know that I succeed in creating
everything in it.  This patch adds a simple check for the inode to keep

[PATCH] module support: record in vermagic ability to unload a module

An UML user reported (against 2.6.13.3/UML) he got kernel Oopses when
trying to rmmod (on a kernel with module unloading enabled) a module
compiled with module unloading disabled.  As crashing is a very correct
thing to do in that case, a solution is altering the vermagic string to
include this too.

Possibly, however, the code should not crash in this case, even if the
module didn't support unloading - it should simply abort the module
removal.  In this case, fixing that bug would be a better solution.  I've
not investigated though.

[PATCH] Keys: Improve usage of memory barriers and remove IRQ disablement

Remove an unnecessary memory barrier (implicit in rcu_dereference()) from
install_session_keyring().

install_session_keyring() is also rearranged a little to make it slightly
more efficient.

As install_*_keyring() may schedule (in synchronize_rcu() or
keyring_alloc()), they may not be entered with interrupts disabled - and so
there's no point saving the interrupt disablement state over the critical
section.

exec_keys() will also be invoked with interrupts enabled, and so that doesn't
need to save the interrupt state either.

Remove duplicate call to idr_remove() in ptmx_open.

Error during open can result in call to release_dev() followed by call to
idr_remove().  release_dev already calls idr_remove so the second call can
cause a stack dump in idr_remove()->sub_remove() flagging an attempt to
release an already released entry.

I reproduces this on a machine with a misconfigured X server (attempting to
restart multiple times rapidly) getting the same error as the 1st link
below.

This also seems to be related to:

http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=selinux&m=110596994916785&w=2

The stack dump can occur on close (as well as open) as shown
in the 1st instance above, possible from something like:

process A - open (index=0), open fail to out1,
  release_dev calls idr_remove (index 0), down(sem) sleeps
process B - open (index=0), open OK (idr allocated)
process A - wake and call idr_remove on index 0
...
process B - close, release_dev, stack dump on idr_remove (index=0)
  because entry already removed

The only record we have of the real-time age of a process, regardless of

real-time age of the process are fooled, for example the process accounting
record when the process finally dies.  This change makes the oldest
start_time stick around with the process after a non-leader exec.  This way
the association between PID and start_time is kept constant, which seems

Fix that up, and uninline tty_schedule_flip() while we're there.
