xfs: enforce synchronous writes in xfs_bwrite

xfs_bwrite is used with the intention of synchronously writing out
buffers, but currently it does not actually clear the async flag if
that's left from previous writes but instead implements async
behaviour if it finds it.  Remove the code handling asynchronous
writes as we've got rid of those entirely outside of the log and
delwri buffers, and make sure that we clear the async and read flags
before writing the buffer.

9 years agoxfs: make the log ticket transaction id random

xfs: make the log ticket transaction id random

The transaction ID that is written to the log for a transaction is
currently set by taking the lower 32 bits of the memory address of
the ticket structure.  This is not guaranteed to be unique as
tickets comes from a slab and slots can be reallocated immediately
after being freed. As a result, there is no guarantee of uniqueness
in the ticket ID value.

Fix this by assigning a random number to the ticket ID field so that
it is extremely unlikely that duplicates will occur and remove the
possibility of transactions being mixed up during recovery due to
duplicate IDs.

9 years agoxfs: simplify XLOG_SECTOR_ROUND*()
Alex Elder [Tue, 13 Apr 2010 05:22:40 +0000]
xfs: simplify XLOG_SECTOR_ROUND*()

XLOG_SECTOR_ROUNDUP_BBCOUNT() is defined in "fs/xfs/xfs_log_recover.c"
in an overly-complicated way.  It is basically roundup(), but that
is not at all clear from its definition.  (Actually, there is
another macro round_up() that applies for power-of-two-based masks
which I'll be using here.)

The operands in XLOG_SECTOR_ROUNDUP_BBCOUNT() are basically the
block number (bbs) and the log sector basic block mask
(log->l_sectbb_mask).  I'll call them B and M for this discussion.

The macro computes is value this way:
M && (B & M) ? (B + M + 1) & ~M : B

Put another way, we can break it into 3 cases:
1)  ! M          -> B # 0 mask, no effect
2)  ! (B & M)    -> B # sector aligned
3)  M && (B & M) -> (B + M + 1) & ~M # round up otherwise

The round_up() macro is cleverly defined using a value, v, and a
power-of-2, p, and the result is the nearest multiple of p greater
than or equal to v.  Its value is computed something like this:
((v - 1) | (p - 1)) + 1
Let's consider using this in the context of the 3 cases above.

When p = 2^0 = 1, the result boils down to ((v - 1) | 0) + 1, so it
just translates any value v to itself.  That handles case (1) above.

When p = 2^n, n > 0, we know that (p - 1) will be a mask with all n
bits 0..n-1 set.  The condition in this case occurs when none of
those mask bits is set in the value v provided.  If that is the
case, subtracting 1 from v will have 1's in all those lower bits (at
least).  Therefore, OR-ing the mask with that decremented value has
no effect, so adding the 1 back again will just translate the v to
itself.  This handles case (2).

Otherwise, the value v is greater than some multiple of p, and
decrementing it will produce a result greater than or equal to that
multiple.  OR-ing in the mask will produce a value 1 less than the
next multiple of p, so finally adding 1 back will result in the
desired rounded-up value.  This handles case (3).

Hopefully this is convincing.

While I was at it, I converted XLOG_SECTOR_ROUNDDOWN_BLKNO() to use
the round_down() macro.

9 years agoxfs: fix min bufsize bugs in two places
Alex Elder [Tue, 13 Apr 2010 05:22:29 +0000]
xfs: fix min bufsize bugs in two places

This fixes a bug in two places that I found by inspection.  In
xlog_find_verify_cycle() and xlog_write_log_records(), the code
attempts to allocate a buffer to hold as many blocks as possible.
It gives up if the number of blocks to be allocated gets too small.
Right now it uses log->l_sectbb_log as that lower bound, but I'm
sure it's supposed to be the actual log sector size instead.  That
is, the lower bound should be (1 << log->l_sectbb_log).

Also define a simple macro xlog_sectbb(log) to represent the number
of basic blocks in a sector for the given log.

(No change from original submission; I have implemented Christoph's
suggestion about storing l_sectsize rather than l_sectbb_log in
a new, separate patch in this series.)

9 years agoxfs: log ticket reservation underestimates the number of iclogs
Dave Chinner [Tue, 23 Mar 2010 00:21:11 +0000]
xfs: log ticket reservation underestimates the number of iclogs

When allocation a ticket for a transaction, the ticket is initialised with the
worst case log space usage based on the number of bytes the transaction may
consume. Part of this calculation is the number of log headers required for the
iclog space used up by the transaction.

This calculation makes an undocumented assumption that if the transaction uses
the log header space reservation on an iclog, then it consumes either the
entire iclog or it completes. That is - the transaction that is first in an
iclog is the transaction that the log header reservation is accounted to. If
the transaction is larger than the iclog, then it will use the entire iclog
itself. Document this assumption.

Further, the current calculation uses the rule that we can fit iclog_size bytes
of transaction data into an iclog. This is in correct - the amount of space
available in an iclog for transaction data is the size of the iclog minus the
space used for log record headers. This means that the calculation is out by
512 bytes per 32k of log space the transaction can consume. This is rarely an
issue because maximally sized transactions are extremely uncommon, and for 4k
block size filesystems maximal transaction reservations are about 400kb. Hence
the error in this case is less than the size of an iclog, so that makes it even
harder to hit.

However, anyone using larger directory blocks (16k directory blocks push the
maximum transaction size to approx. 900k on a 4k block size filesystem) or
larger block size (e.g. 64k blocks push transactions to the 3-4MB size) could
see the error grow to more than an iclog and at this point the transaction is
guaranteed to get a reservation underrun and shutdown the filesystem.

Fix this by adjusting the calculation to calculate the correct number of iclogs
required and account for them all up front.

xfs: Fix integer overflow in fs/xfs/linux-2.6/xfs_ioctl*.c

The am_hreq.opcount field in the xfs_attrmulti_by_handle() interface
is not bounded correctly. The opcount is used to determine the size
of the buffer required. The size is bounded, but can overflow and so
the size checks may not be sufficient to catch invalid opcounts.
Fix it by catching opcount values that would cause overflows before

9 years ago MIPS FPU emulator: allow Cause bits of FCSR to be writeable by ctc1
Shane McDonald [Fri, 7 May 2010 05:26:57 +0000]
MIPS FPU emulator: allow Cause bits of FCSR to be writeable by ctc1

    In the FPU emulator code of the MIPS, the Cause bits of the FCSR register
    are not currently writeable by the ctc1 instruction.  In odd corner cases,
    this can cause problems.  For example, a case existed where a divide-by-zero
    exception was generated by the FPU, and the signal handler attempted to
    restore the FPU registers to their state before the exception occurred.  In
    this particular setup, writing the old value to the FCSR register would
    cause another divide-by-zero exception to occur immediately.  The solution
    is to change the ctc1 instruction emulator code to allow the Cause bits of
    the FCSR register to be writeable.  This is the behaviour of the hardware
    that the code is emulating.

    This problem was found by Shane McDonald, but the credit for the fix goes
    to Kevin Kissell.  In Kevin's words:

    I submit that the bug is indeed in that ctc_op:  case of the emulator.  The
    Cause bits (17:12) are supposed to be writable by that instruction, but the
    CTC1 emulation won't let them be updated by the instruction.  I think that
    actually if you just completely removed lines 387-388 [...] things would
    work a good deal better.  At least, it would be a more accurate emulation of
    the architecturally defined FPU.  If I wanted to be really, really pedantic
    (which I sometimes do), I'd also protect the reserved bits that aren't
    necessarily writable.

Fix the regression created by "set S_DEAD on unlink()..." commit

1) i_flags simply doesn't work for mount/unlink race prevention;
we may have many links to file and rm on one of those obviously
shouldn't prevent bind on top of another later on.  To fix it
right way we need to mark _dentry_ as unsuitable for mounting
upon; new flag (DCACHE_CANT_MOUNT) is protected by d_flags and
i_mutex on the inode in question.  Set it (with dont_mount(dentry))
in unlink/rmdir/etc., check (with cant_mount(dentry)) in places
in namespace.c that used to check for S_DEAD.  Setting S_DEAD
is still needed in places where we used to set it (for directories
getting killed), since we rely on it for readdir/rmdir race
prevention.

2) rename()/mount() protection has another bogosity - we unhash
the target before we'd checked that it's not a mountpoint.  Fixed.

3) ancient bogosity in pivot_root() - we locked i_mutex on the
right directory, but checked S_DEAD on the different (and wrong)
one.  Noticed and fixed.

inotify: race use after free/double free in inotify inode marks

There is a race in the inotify add/rm watch code.  A task can find and
remove a mark which doesn't have all of it's references.  This can
result in a use after free/double free situation.

mmap_min_addr check CAP_SYS_RAWIO only for write

Redirecting directly to lsm, here's the patch discussed on lkml:
http://lkml.org/lkml/2010/4/22/219

The mmap_min_addr value is useful information for an admin to see without
being root ("is my system vulnerable to kernel NULL pointer attacks?") and
its setting is trivially easy for an attacker to determine by calling
mmap() in PAGE_SIZE increments starting at 0, so trying to keep it private
has no value.

Only require CAP_SYS_RAWIO if changing the value, not reading it.

Comment from Serge :

  Me, I like to write my passwords with light blue pen on dark blue
  paper, pasted on my window - if you're going to get my password, you're

serial: imx.c: fix CTS trigger level lower to avoid lost chars

The imx CTS trigger level is left at its reset value that is 32
chars. Since the RX FIFO has 32 entries, when CTS is raised, the
FIFO already is full. However, some serial port devices first empty
their TX FIFO before stopping when CTS is raised, resulting in lost
chars.

This patch sets the trigger level lower so that other chars arrive
after CTS is raised, there is still room for 16 of them.

mfd: Clean up after WM83xx AUXADC interrupt if it arrives late

In certain circumstances, especially under heavy load, the AUXADC
completion interrupt may be detected after we've timed out waiting for
it.  That conversion would still succeed but the next conversion will
see the completion that was signalled by the interrupt for the previous
conversion and therefore not wait for the AUXADC conversion to run,
causing it to report failure.

Provide a simple, non-invasive cleanup by using try_wait_for_completion()
to ensure that the completion is not signalled before we wait.  Since
the AUXADC is run within a mutex we know there can only have been at
most one AUXADC interrupt outstanding.  A more involved change should
follow for the next merge window.

Oskar Schirmer [Thu, 13 May 2010 07:42:23 +0000]
Input: ad7877 - keep dma rx buffers in seperate cache lines

With dma based spi transmission, data corruption is observed
occasionally. With dma buffers located right next to msg and
xfer fields, cache lines correctly flushed in preparation for
dma usage may be polluted again when writing to fields in the
same cache line.

Make sure cache fields used with dma do not share cache lines
with fields changed during dma handling. As both fields are part
of a struct that is allocated via kzalloc, thus cache aligned,
moving the fields to the 1st position and insert padding for
alignment does the job.

Dmitry Torokhov [Thu, 13 May 2010 07:42:23 +0000]
Input: psmouse - reset all types of mice before reconnecting

Synaptics hardware requires resetting device after suspend to ram
in order for the device to be operational. The reset lives in
synaptics-specific reconnect handler, but it is not being invoked
if synaptics support is disabled and the device is handled as a
standard PS/2 device (bare or IntelliMouse protocol).

Let's add reset into generic reconnect handler as well.

Dmitry Torokhov [Thu, 13 May 2010 07:41:15 +0000]
Input: elantech - use all 3 bytes when checking version

Apparently all 3 bytes returned by ETP_FW_VERSION_QUERY are significant
and should be taken into account when matching hardware version/features.

9 years agomicroblaze: fix get_user/put_user side-effects
Steven J. Magnani [Thu, 6 May 2010 21:38:33 +0000]
microblaze: fix get_user/put_user side-effects

The Microblaze implementations of get_user() and (MMU) put_user() evaluate
the address argument more than once. This causes unexpected side-effects for
invocations that include increment operators, i.e. get_user(foo, bar++).

This patch also removes the distinction between MMU and noMMU put_user().

Usually "_text" is enough, but I received reports that its not always
available, so fallback to "_stext" for the symbol we use to check if we
need to apply any relocation to all the symbols in the kernel symtab,

Jan Kiszka [Tue, 11 May 2010 13:16:46 +0000]
KVM: VMX: blocked-by-sti must not defer NMI injections

As the processor may not consider GUEST_INTR_STATE_STI as a reason for
blocking NMI, it could return immediately with EXIT_REASON_NMI_WINDOW
when we asked for it. But as we consider this state as NMI-blocking, we
can run into an endless loop.

Resolve this by allowing NMI injection if just GUEST_INTR_STATE_STI is
active (originally suggested by Gleb). Intel confirmed that this is
safe, the processor will never complain about NMI injection in this
state.

KVM: SVM: Fix wrong intercept masks on 32 bit

This patch makes KVM on 32 bit SVM working again by
correcting the masks used for iret interception. With the
wrong masks the upper 32 bits of the intercepts are masked
out which leaves vmrun unintercepted. This is not legal on
svm and the vmrun fails.
Bug was introduced by commits 95ba827313 and 3cfc3092.
