12 years agofix struct user_info export's sysfs interaction
Kay Sievers [Fri, 2 Nov 2007 12:47:53 +0000]
fix struct user_info export's sysfs interaction

Clean up the use of ksets and kobjects. Kobjects are instances of
objects (like struct user_info), ksets are collections of objects of a
similar type (like the uids directory containing the user_info directories).
So, use kobjects for the user_info directories, and a kset for the "uids"
directory.

On object cleanup, the final kobject_put() was missing.

kobject: fix up kobject_set_name to use kvasprintf

Kay pointed out that kobject_set_name was being very stupid, doing two
allocations for every call, when it should just be using the kernel
function kvasprintf() instead.

This change adds the internal kobject_set_name_vargs() function, which
other follow-on patches will be using.

ecryptfs: clean up attribute mess

It isn't that hard to add simple kset attributes, so don't go through
all the gyrations of creating your own object type and show and store
functions.  Just use the functions that are already present.  This makes
things much simpler.

Note, the version_str string violates the "one value per file" rule for
sysfs.  I suggest changing this now (individual files per type supported
is one suggested way.)

PM: Acquire device locks on suspend

This patch reorganizes the way suspend and resume notifications are
sent to drivers.  The major changes are that now the PM core acquires
every device semaphore before calling the methods, and calls to
device_add() during suspends will fail, while calls to device_del()
during suspends will block.

It also provides a way to safely remove a suspended device with the
help of the PM core, by using the device_pm_schedule_removal() callback
introduced specifically for this purpose, and updates two drivers (msr
and cpuid) that need to use it.

12 years agofix hugepages leak due to pagetable page sharing
Larry Woodman [Thu, 24 Jan 2008 13:49:25 +0000]
fix hugepages leak due to pagetable page sharing

The shared page table code for hugetlb memory on x86 and x86_64
is causing a leak.  When a user of hugepages exits using this code
the system leaks some of the hugepages.

-------------------------------------------------------
Part of /proc/meminfo just before database startup:
HugePages_Total:  5500
HugePages_Free:   5500
HugePages_Rsvd:      0
Hugepagesize:     2048 kB

Just before shutdown:
HugePages_Total:  5500
HugePages_Free:   4475
HugePages_Rsvd:      0
Hugepagesize:     2048 kB

After shutdown:
HugePages_Total:  5500
HugePages_Free:   4988
HugePages_Rsvd:
0 Hugepagesize:     2048 kB
----------------------------------------------------------

The problem occurs durring a fork, in copy_hugetlb_page_range().  It
locates the dst_pte using huge_pte_alloc().  Since huge_pte_alloc() calls
huge_pmd_share() it will share the pmd page if can, yet the main loop in
copy_hugetlb_page_range() does a get_page() on every hugepage.  This is a
violation of the shared hugepmd pagetable protocol and creates additional
referenced to the hugepages causing a leak when the unmap of the VMA
occurs.  We can skip the entire replication of the ptes when the hugepage
pagetables are shared.  The attached patch skips copying the ptes and the
get_page() calls if the hugetlbpage pagetable is shared.

Because the data field was never filled and a binary sysctl handler was

12 years agolockdep: fix kernel crash on module unload
Arjan van de Ven [Thu, 24 Jan 2008 06:00:45 +0000]
lockdep: fix kernel crash on module unload

Michael Wu noticed in his lkml post at

    http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=119396182726091&w=2

that certain wireless drivers ended up having their name in module
memory, which would then crash the kernel on module unload.

The patch he proposed was a bit clumsy in that it increased the size of
a lockdep entry significantly; the patch below tries another approach,
it checks, on module teardown, if the name of a class is in module space
and then zaps the class.  This is very similar to what we already do
with keys that are in module space.
