Miklos Szeredi [Fri, 9 Sep 2005 20:10:39 +0000]
[PATCH] FUSE: don't allow restarting of system calls

This patch removes ability to interrupt and restart operations while there
hasn't been any side-effect.

The reason: applications.  There are some apps it seems that generate
signals at a fast rate.  This means, that if the operation cannot make
enough progress between two signals, it will be restarted for ever.  This
bug actually manifested itself with 'krusader' trying to open a file for
writing under sshfs.  Thanks to Eduard Czimbalmos for the report.

The problem can be solved just by making open() uninterruptible, because in
this case it was the truncate operation that slowed down the progress.  But
it's better to solve this by simply not allowing interrupts at all (except
SIGKILL), because applications don't expect file operations to be
interruptible anyway.  As an added bonus the code is simplified somewhat.

[PATCH] fuse: transfer readdir data through device

This patch removes a long lasting "hack" in FUSE, which used a separate
channel (a file descriptor refering to a disk-file) to transfer directory
contents from userspace to the kernel.

The patch adds three new operations (OPENDIR, READDIR, RELEASEDIR), which
have semantics and implementation exactly maching the respective file
operations (OPEN, READ, RELEASE).

This simplifies the directory reading code.  Also disk space is not
necessary, which can be important in embedded systems.

This patch adds support for the "direct_io" mount option of FUSE.

When this mount option is specified, the page cache is bypassed for
read and write operations.  This is useful for example, if the
filesystem doesn't know the size of files before reading them, or when
any kind of caching is harmful.

[PATCH] FUSE: tighten check for processes allowed access

This patch tightens the check for allowing processes to access non-privileged
mounts.  The rational is that the filesystem implementation can control the
behavior or get otherwise unavailable information of the filesystem user.  If
the filesystem user process has the same uid, gid, and is not suid or sgid
application, then access is safe.  Otherwise access is not allowed unless the
"allow_other" mount option is given (for which policy is controlled by the
userspace mount utility).

Thanks to everyone linux-fsdevel, especially Martin Mares who helped uncover
problems with the previous approach.

    - registers FUSE filesystem

 o fuse_i.h
    - private header file

Requirements
============

 The most important difference between orinary filesystems and FUSE is
 the fact, that the filesystem data/metadata is provided by a userspace
 process run with the privileges of the mount "owner" instead of the
 kernel, or some remote entity usually running with elevated
 privileges.

 The security implication of this is that a non-privileged user must
 not be able to use this capability to compromise the system.  Obvious
 requirements arising from this are:

  - mount owner should not be able to get elevated privileges with the
    help of the mounted filesystem

  - mount owner should not be able to induce undesired behavior in
    other users' or the super user's processes

  - mount owner should not get illegitimate access to information from
    other users' and the super user's processes

 These are currently ensured with the following constraints:

  1) mount is only allowed to directory or file which the mount owner
    can modify without limitation (write access + no sticky bit for
    directories)

  2) nosuid,nodev mount options are forced

  3) any process running with fsuid different from the owner is denied
     all access to the filesystem

 1) and 2) are ensured by the "fusermount" mount utility which is a
    setuid root application doing the actual mount operation.

 3) is ensured by a check in the permission() method in kernel

 I started thinking about doing 3) in a different way because Christoph
 H. made a big deal out of it, saying that FUSE is unacceptable into
 mainline in this form.

 The suggested use of private namespaces would be OK, but in their
 current form have many limitations that make their use impractical (as
 discussed in this thread).

 Suggested improvements that would address these limitations:

   - implement shared subtrees

   - allow a process to join an existing namespace (make namespaces
     first-class objects)

   - implement the namespace creation/joining in a PAM module

 With all that in place the check of owner against current->fsuid may
 be removed from the FUSE kernel module, without compromising the
 security requirements.

 Suid programs still interesting questions, since they get access even
 to the private namespace causing some information leak (exact
 order/timing of filesystem operations performed), giving some
 ptrace-like capabilities to unprivileged users.  BTW this problem is
 not strictly limited to the namespace approach, since suid programs
 setting fsuid and accessing users' files will succeed with the current
 approach too.

Antonino A. Daplas [Fri, 9 Sep 2005 20:09:58 +0000]
[PATCH] fbdev: Add VESA Coordinated Video Timings (CVT) support

The Coordinated Video Timings (CVT) is the latest standard approved by VESA
concerning video timings generation.  It addresses the limitation of GTF which
is designed mainly for CRT displays.  CRT's have a high blanking requirement
(as much as 25% of the horizontal frame length) which artificially increases
the pixelclock.  Digital displays, on the other hand, needs to conserve the
pixelclock as much as possible.  The GTF also does not take into account the
different aspect ratios in its calculation.

The new function added is fb_find_mode_cvt().  It is called by fb_find_mode()
if it recognizes a mode option string formatted for CVT.  The format is:

<xres>x<yres>[M][R][-<bpp>][<at-sign><refresh>][i][m]

The 'M' tells the function to calculate using CVT.  On it's own, it will
compute a timing for CRT displays at 60Hz.  If the 'R' is specified, 'reduced
blanking' computation will be used, best for flatpanels.  The 'i' and the 'm'
is for 'interlaced mode' and 'with margins' respectively.

To determine if CVT was used, check for dmesg for something like this:

CVT Mode - <pix>M<n>[-R], ie: .480M3-R  (800x600 reduced blanking)

where: pix - product of xres and yres, in MB
    M   - is a CVT mode
    n   - the aspect ratio (3 - 4:3; 4 - 5:4; 9 - 16:9, 15:9; A - 16:10)
    -R   - reduced blanking

Knut Petersen [Fri, 9 Sep 2005 20:04:59 +0000]
[PATCH] framebuffer: bit_putcs() optimization for 8x* fonts

This trivial patch gives a performance boost to the framebuffer console

Constructing the bitmaps that are given to the bitblit functions of the
framebuffer drivers is time consuming.  Here we avoide a call to the slow
fb_pad_aligned_buffer().  The patch replaces that call with a simple but
much more efficient bytewise copy.

The kernel spends a significant time at this place if you use 8x* fonts.
Every pixel displayed on your screen is prepared here.

Some benchmark results:

Displaying a file of 2000 lines with 160 characters each takes 889 ms
system time using cyblafb on my system (I´m using a 1280x1024 video mode,
resulting in a 160x64 character console)

Displaying the same file with the enclosed patch applied to 2.6.13 only
takes 760 ms system time, saving 129 ms or 14.5%.

Font widths other than 8 are not affected.

The advantage and correctness of this patch should be obvious.

13 years ago[PATCH] framebuffer: new driver for cyberblade/i1 graphics core
Knut Petersen [Fri, 9 Sep 2005 20:04:56 +0000]
[PATCH] framebuffer: new driver for cyberblade/i1 graphics core

This is a framebuffer driver for the Cyberblade/i1 graphics core.

Currently tridenfb claims to support the cyberblade/i1 graphics core.  This
is of very limited truth.  Even vesafb is faster and provides more working
modes and a much better quality of the video signal.  There is a great
number of bugs in tridentfb ...  but most often it is impossible to decide
if these bugs are real bugs or if fixing them for the cyberblade/i1 core
would break support for one of the other supported chips.

Tridentfb seems to be unmaintained,and documentation for most of the
supported chips is not available.  So "fixing" cyberblade/i1 support inside
of tridentfb was not an option, it would have caused numerous
if(CYBERBLADEi1) else ...  cases and would have rendered the code to be
almost unmaintainable.

A first version of this driver was published on 2005-07-31.  A fix for a
bug reported by Jochen Hein was integrated as well as some changes
requested by Antonino A.  Daplas.

A message has been added to tridentfb to inform current users of tridentfb
to switch to cyblafb if the cyberblade/i1 graphics core is detected.

This patch is one logical change, but because of the included documentation
it is bigger than 70kb.  Therefore it is not sent to lkml and
linux-fbdev-devel,

[PATCH] matroxfb: read MGA PInS data on PowerPC

This updates the matroxfb code so that it can find the PInS data embedded
in the BIOS on PowerPC cards.  The process for finding the data is
different on OpenFirmware cards than on x86 cards, and the code for doing
so was missing.

After patching, building, installing, and booting a kernel, you should grep
for "PInS" in /var/log/messages.  You should see two messages in the log:

PInS data found at offset XXXXX
PInS memtype = X

On the GXT135p card I get "31168" and "5".  The first value is irrelevant,
but it's presence lets me know that the PInS data was actually found.  On a
GXT130p, the second value should be 3.  Since I don't have access to that
hardware, if someone can verify that, I will submit a follow-on patch that
rips out all the memtype parameter stuff.

[PATCH] console: Fix buffer copy on vc resize

On a vc resize, the contents of the old screen buffer are transferred to the
new screenbuffer.  If the new screenbuffer is smaller than the old one, only
the contents from the bottom are copied to new.  If the contents of the old
buffer are located at the top, then the contents will not be copied to the new
buffer resulting in a blank screen.

This bug will happen only if the vc in question is not in the foreground.
Doing an fbset -a or con2fbmap will trigger this bug.

To fix this problem, base the start of the copy from the location of the
current cursor.  If the cursor is near the top of the buffer, copy the
contents at the top, and if the cursor is near the bottom of the buffer, then
copy the contents at the bottom.  In the unlikely case where the new row size
is greater than 2x smaller than the old one, and the cursor is in the middle,
copy 1/2 screenful from the top and bottom of the cursor position.

[PATCH] v9fs: Documentation, Makefiles, Configuration

OVERVIEW

V9FS is a distributed file system for Linux which provides an
implementation of the Plan 9 resource sharing protocol 9P.  It can be
used to share all sorts of resources: static files, synthetic file servers
(such as /proc or /sys), devices, and application file servers (such as
FUSE).

BACKGROUND

Plan 9 (http://plan9.bell-labs.com/plan9) is a research operating
system and associated applications suite developed by the Computing
Science Research Center of AT&T Bell Laboratories (now a part of
Lucent Technologies), the same group that developed UNIX , C, and C++.
Plan 9 was initially released in 1993 to universities, and then made
generally available in 1995. Its core operating systems code laid the
foundation for the Inferno Operating System released as a product by
Lucent Bell-Labs in 1997. The Inferno venture was the only commercial
embodiment of Plan 9 and is currently maintained as a product by Vita
Nuova (http://www.vitanuova.com). After updated releases in 2000 and
2002, Plan 9 was open-sourced under the OSI approved Lucent Public
License in 2003.

The Plan 9 project was started by Ken Thompson and Rob Pike in 1985.
Their intent was to explore potential solutions to some of the
shortcomings of UNIX in the face of the widespread use of high-speed
networks to connect machines. In UNIX, networking was an afterthought
and UNIX clusters became little more than a network of stand-alone
systems. Plan 9 was designed from first principles as a seamless
distributed system with integrated secure network resource sharing.
Applications and services were architected in such a way as to allow
for implicit distribution across a cluster of systems. Configuring an
environment to use remote application components or services in place
of their local equivalent could be achieved with a few simple command
line instructions. For the most part, application implementations
operated independent of the location of their actual resources.

Commercial operating systems haven't changed much in the 20 years
since Plan 9 was conceived. Network and distributed systems support is
provided by a patchwork of middle-ware, with an endless number of
packages supplying pieces of the puzzle. Matters are complicated by
the use of different complicated protocols for individual services,
and separate implementations for kernel and application resources.
The V9FS project (http://v9fs.sourceforge.net) is an attempt to bring
Plan 9's unified approach to resource sharing to Linux and other
operating systems via support for the 9P2000 resource sharing
protocol.

V9FS HISTORY

V9FS was originally developed by Ron Minnich and Maya Gokhale at Los
Alamos National Labs (LANL) in 1997.  In November of 2001, Greg Watson
setup a SourceForge project as a public repository for the code which
supported the Linux 2.4 kernel.

About a year ago, I picked up the initial attempt Ron Minnich had
made to provide 2.6 support and got the code integrated into a 2.6.5
kernel.   I then went through a line-for-line re-write attempting to
clean-up the code while more closely following the Linux Kernel style
guidelines.  I co-authored a paper with Ron Minnich on the V9FS Linux
support including performance comparisons to NFSv3 using Bonnie and
PostMark - this paper appeared at the USENIX/FREENIX 2005
conference in April 2005:
( http://www.usenix.org/events/usenix05/tech/freenix/hensbergen.html ).

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION/REQUEST FOR COMMENTS

Our 2.6 kernel support is stabilizing and we'd like to begin pursuing
its integration into the official kernel tree.  We would appreciate any
review, comments, critiques, and additions from this community and are
actively seeking people to join our project and help us produce
something that would be acceptable and useful to the Linux community.

STATUS

The code is reasonably stable, although there are no doubt corner cases
our regression tests haven't discovered yet.  It is in regular use by several
of the developers and has been tested on x86 and PowerPC
(32-bit and 64-bit) in both small and large (LANL cluster) deployments.
Our current regression tests include fsx, bonnie, and postmark.

It was our intention to keep things as simple as possible for this
release -- trying to focus on correctness within the core of the
protocol support versus a rich set of features.  For example: a more
complete security model and cache layer are in the road map, but
excluded from this release.   Additionally, we have removed support for
mmap operations at Al Viro's request.

PERFORMANCE

Detailed performance numbers and analysis are included in the FREENIX
paper, but we show comparable performance to NFSv3 for large file
operations based on the Bonnie benchmark, and superior performance for
many small file operations based on the PostMark benchmark.   Somewhat
preliminary graphs (from the FREENIX paper) are available
(http://v9fs.sourceforge.net/perf/index.html).

RESOURCES

The source code is available in a few different forms:

tarballs: http://v9fs.sf.net
CVSweb: http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/v9fs/linux-9p/
CVS: :pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/v9fs/linux-9p
Git: rsync://v9fs.graverobber.org/v9fs (webgit: http://v9fs.graverobber.org)
9P: tcp!v9fs.graverobber.org!6564

The user-level server is available from either the Plan 9 distribution
or from http://v9fs.sf.net
Other support applications are still being developed, but preliminary
version can be downloaded from sourceforge.

Documentation on the protocol has historically been the Plan 9 Man
pages (http://plan9.bell-labs.com/sys/man/5/INDEX.html), but there is
an effort under way to write a more complete Internet-Draft style
specification (http://v9fs.sf.net/rfc).

There are a couple of mailing lists supporting v9fs, but the most used
is v9fs-developer@lists.sourceforge.net -- please direct/cc your
comments there so the other v9fs contibutors can participate in the
conversation.  There is also an IRC channel: irc://freenode.net/#v9fs

Dipankar Sarma [Fri, 9 Sep 2005 20:04:13 +0000]
[PATCH] files: files struct with RCU

Patch to eliminate struct files_struct.file_lock spinlock on the reader side
and use rcu refcounting rcuref_xxx api for the f_count refcounter.  The
updates to the fdtable are done by allocating a new fdtable structure and
setting files->fdt to point to the new structure.  The fdtable structure is
protected by RCU thereby allowing lock-free lookup.  For fd arrays/sets that
are vmalloced, we use keventd to free them since RCU callbacks can't sleep.  A
global list of fdtable to be freed is not scalable, so we use a per-cpu list.
If keventd is already handling the current cpu's work, we use a timer to defer
queueing of that work.

Since the last publication, this patch has been re-written to avoid using
explicit memory barriers and use rcu_assign_pointer(), rcu_dereference()
premitives instead.  This required that the fd information is kept in a
separate structure (fdtable) and updated atomically.

[PATCH] files: break up files struct

In order for the RCU to work, the file table array, sets and their sizes must
be updated atomically.  Instead of ensuring this through too many memory
barriers, we put the arrays and their sizes in a separate structure.  This
patch takes the first step of putting the file table elements in a separate
structure fdtable that is embedded withing files_struct.  It also changes all
the users to refer to the file table using files_fdtable() macro.  Subsequent
applciation of RCU becomes easier after this.

[PATCH] files: fix rcu initializers

First of a number of files_lock scaability patches.

 Here are the x86 numbers -

 tiobench on a 4(8)-way (HT) P4 system on ramdisk :

                                         (lockfree)
 Test            2.6.10-vanilla  Stdev   2.6.10-fd       Stdev
 -------------------------------------------------------------
 Seqread         1400.8          11.52   1465.4          34.27
 Randread        1594            8.86    2397.2          29.21
 Seqwrite        242.72          3.47    238.46          6.53
 Randwrite       445.74          9.15    446.4           9.75

 The performance improvement is very significant.
 We are getting killed by the cacheline bouncing of the files_struct
 lock here. Writes on ramdisk (ext2) seems to vary just too
 much to get any meaningful number.

 Also, With Tridge's thread_perf test on a 4(8)-way (HT) P4 xeon system :

 2.6.12-rc5-vanilla :

 Running test 'readwrite' with 8 tasks
 Threads     0.34 +/- 0.01 seconds
 Processes   0.16 +/- 0.00 seconds

 2.6.12-rc5-fd :

 Running test 'readwrite' with 8 tasks
 Threads     0.17 +/- 0.02 seconds
 Processes   0.17 +/- 0.02 seconds

 I repeated the measurements on ramfs (as opposed to ext2 on ramdisk in
 the earlier measurement) and I got more consistent results from tiobench :

 4(8) way xeon P4
 -----------------
                                         (lock-free)
 Test            2.6.12-rc5      Stdev   2.6.12-rc5-fd   Stdev
 -------------------------------------------------------------
 Seqread         1282            18.59   1343.6          26.37
 Randread        1517            7       2415            34.27
 Seqwrite        702.2           5.27    709.46           5.9
 Randwrite       846.86          15.15   919.68          21.4

 4-way ppc64
 ------------
                                         (lock-free)
 Test            2.6.12-rc5      Stdev   2.6.12-rc5-fd   Stdev
 -------------------------------------------------------------
 Seqread         1549            91.16   1569.6          47.2
 Randread        1473.6          25.11   1585.4          69.99
 Seqwrite        1096.8          20.03   1136            29.61
 Randwrite       1189.6           4.04   1275.2          32.96

 Also running Tridge's thread_perf test on ppc64 :

 2.6.12-rc5-vanilla
 --------------------
 Running test 'readwrite' with 4 tasks
 Threads     0.20 +/- 0.02 seconds
 Processes   0.16 +/- 0.01 seconds

 2.6.12-rc5-fd
 --------------------
 Running test 'readwrite' with 4 tasks
 Threads     0.18 +/- 0.04 seconds
 Processes   0.16 +/- 0.01 seconds

 The benefits are huge (upto ~60%) in some cases on x86 primarily
 due to the atomic operations during acquisition of ->file_lock
 and cache line bouncing in fast path. ppc64 benefits are modest
