[PATCH] Fix oops in invalidate_dquots()

When quota is being turned off we assumed that all the references to dquots
were already dropped.  That need not be true as inodes being deleted are
not on superblock's inodes list and hence we need not reach it when
removing quota references from inodes.  So invalidate_dquots() has to wait
for all the users of dquots (as quota is already marked as turned off, no
new references can be acquired and so this is bound to happen rather
early).  When we do this, we can also remove the iprune_sem locking as it
was protecting us against exactly the same problem when freeing inodes
icache memory.

Eric Dumazet [Thu, 23 Mar 2006 11:00:12 +0000]
[PATCH] Shrinks sizeof(files_struct) and better layout

1) Reduce the size of (struct fdtable) to exactly 64 bytes on 32bits
   platforms, lowering kmalloc() allocated space by 50%.

2) Reduce the size of (files_struct), using a special 32 bits (or
   64bits) embedded_fd_set, instead of a 1024 bits fd_set for the
   close_on_exec_init and open_fds_init fields.  This save some ram (248
   bytes per task) as most tasks dont open more than 32 files.  D-Cache
   footprint for such tasks is also reduced to the minimum.

3) Reduce size of allocated fdset.  Currently two full pages are
   allocated, that is 32768 bits on x86 for example, and way too much.  The
   minimum is now L1_CACHE_BYTES.

UP and SMP should benefit from this patch, because most tasks will touch
only one cache line when open()/close() stdin/stdout/stderr (0/1/2),
(next_fd, close_on_exec_init, open_fds_init, fd_array[0 ..  2] being in the
same cache line)

Andrew Morton [Thu, 23 Mar 2006 11:00:11 +0000]
[PATCH] ext3_readdir: use generic readahead

Linus points out that ext3_readdir's readahead only cuts in when
ext3_readdir() is operating at the very start of the directory.  So for large
directories we end up performing no readahead at all and we suck.

So take it all out and use the core VM's page_cache_readahead().  This means
that ext3 directory reads will use all of readahead's dynamic sizing goop.

Note that we're using the directory's filp->f_ra to hold the readahead state,
but readahead is actually being performed against the underlying blockdev's
address_space.  Fortunately the readahead code is all set up to handle this.

Tested with printk.  It works.  I was struggling to find a real workload which
actually cared.

(The patch also exports page_cache_readahead() to GPL modules)

Rafael J. Wysocki [Thu, 23 Mar 2006 11:00:03 +0000]
[PATCH] swsusp: userland interface

This patch introduces a user space interface for swsusp.

The interface is based on a special character device, called the snapshot
device, that allows user space processes to perform suspend and resume-related
operations with the help of some ioctls and the read()/write() functions.
¬†Additionally it allows these processes to allocate free swap pages from a
selected swap partition, called the resume partition, so that they know which
sectors of the resume partition are available to them.

The interface uses the same low-level system memory snapshot-handling
functions that are used by the built-it swap-writing/reading code of swsusp.

The interface documentation is included in the patch.

The patch assumes that the major and minor numbers of the snapshot device will
be 10 (ie.  misc device) and 231, the registration of which has already been
requested.

_raw_spin_lock_flags() is entered with interrupts disabled.  If it cannot
obtain a spinlock, it checks the flags that were passed and re-enables
interrupts before spinning if that's how the flags are set.  When the
spinlock might be available, it disables interrupts (even if they are
already disabled) before trying to get the lock.  Change that so interrupts
are only disabled if they have been enabled.  This costs nine bytes of
duplicated spinloop code.

        cli                     disable interrupts
        jmp <try for lock>      unconditional jump

(in head.S) no longer needs to reserve space for each CPU's instance.  With
cpu_gdt_table not being used for CPU 0 anymore, it doesn't seem to need
page alignment (or if in fact there is a need for it to retain that
alignment, the whole object should go into .data.page_align).

I am of the opinion that the above changeset is incomplete, i.e.  it missed
converting some previous uses of user_mode to user_mode_vm.  While most of
them could be considered just cosmetical, at least the one in die_nmi
doesn't appear to be.

14 years ago[PATCH] i386: actively synchronize vmalloc area when registering certain callbacks
Jan Beulich [Thu, 23 Mar 2006 10:59:45 +0000]
[PATCH] i386: actively synchronize vmalloc area when registering certain callbacks

Registering a callback handler through register_die_notifier() is obviously
primarily intended for use by modules.  However, the way these currently
get called it is basically impossible for them to actually be used by
modules, as there is, on non-PAE configurationes, a good chance (the larger
the module, the better) for the system to crash as a result.

This is because the callback gets invoked

(a) in the page fault path before the top level page table propagation
    gets carried out (hence a fault to propagate the top level page table
    entry/entries mapping to module's code/data would nest infinitly) and

(b) in the NMI path, where nested faults must absolutely not happen,
    since otherwise the IRET from the nested fault re-enables NMIs,
    potentially resulting in nested NMI occurences.

Besides the modular aspect, similar problems would even arise for in-
kernel consumers of the API if they touched ioremap()ed or vmalloc()ed
memory inside their handlers.

Stas Sergeev [Thu, 23 Mar 2006 10:59:41 +0000]
[PATCH] x86: early printk handling fixes

The history is that -mm kernels do not work for me for a few months
already.  The things started from crashing somewhere after starting init,
and for the last month - no boot at all, just "Uncompressing...  OK,
booting kernel", and silence.  Early console didn't work too.  With the
latest releases this degraded into an infinite stream of the "Unknown
interrupt or fault" messages.  So today my patience ran out and I started
to think how can I collect at least some info for the bug-report.  Attached
is the patch that allows to gather some valueable debug info on the problem
by making an early console more useable.  I can't properly test the patch,
as the kernel still doesn't boot, so I'll explain it in details in a hope
someone else can justify the intrusive changes.

arch_hooks.h: added prototypes for setup_early_printk() and early_printk().

setup.c: killed wrong setup_early_printk() prototype.  Moved
setup_early_printk() a bit earlier, as it was not "early enough" to cover
the bug I was fighting with.

early_printk.c: made it to start printing from the bottom of the screen,
otherwise the messages interfere with the ones of the boot-loader, so you
can't read them.

But the code continued to build cleanly without errors.

Introducing a temporary fixes this problem and at least with gcc-3.3.5 does
not cause gcc any problems with optimizing out the temporary.  gcc-4.x
using SSA internally ought to be even better at optimizing out temporaries,
so I don't expect a temporary to become a problem.  Especially because in
all correct cases the types on both sides of the assignment to the
temporary are the same.

14 years ago[PATCH] x86: SMP alternatives
Gerd Hoffmann [Thu, 23 Mar 2006 10:59:32 +0000]
[PATCH] x86: SMP alternatives

Implement SMP alternatives, i.e.  switching at runtime between different
code versions for UP and SMP.  The code can patch both SMP->UP and UP->SMP.
The UP->SMP case is useful for CPU hotplug.

With CONFIG_CPU_HOTPLUG enabled the code switches to UP at boot time and
when the number of CPUs goes down to 1, and switches to SMP when the number
of CPUs goes up to 2.

Without CONFIG_CPU_HOTPLUG or on non-SMP-capable systems the code is
patched once at boot time (if needed) and the tables are released
afterwards.

The changes in detail:

  * The current alternatives bits are moved to a separate file,
    the SMP alternatives code is added there.

  * The patch adds some new elf sections to the kernel:
    .smp_altinstructions
like .altinstructions, also contains a list
of alt_instr structs.
    .smp_altinstr_replacement
like .altinstr_replacement, but also has some space to
save original instruction before replaving it.
    .smp_locks
list of pointers to lock prefixes which can be nop'ed
out on UP.
    The first two are used to replace more complex instruction
    sequences such as spinlocks and semaphores.  It would be possible
    to deal with the lock prefixes with that as well, but by handling
    them as special case the table sizes become much smaller.

 * The sections are page-aligned and padded up to page size, so they
   can be free if they are not needed.

 * Splitted the code to release init pages to a separate function and
   use it to release the elf sections if they are unused.

should be scheduled for removal.  But for now, let's fix these problems up).

[PATCH] cciss: fix use-after-free in cciss_init_one

free_hba() sets hba[i] to NULL, the dereference afterwards results in this
crash.  Setting busy_initializing to 0 actually looks unnecessary, but I'm
not entirely sure, which is why I left it in.

[PATCH] DM: Fix bug: BIO_RW_BARRIER requests to md/raid1 hang.

Both R1BIO_Barrier and R1BIO_Returned are 4 !!!!

This means that barrier requests don't get returned (i.e.  b_endio called)
because it looks like they already have been.

14 years ago[PATCH] fix scheduler deadlock
Anton Blanchard [Thu, 23 Mar 2006 10:59:20 +0000]
[PATCH] fix scheduler deadlock

We have noticed lockups during boot when stress testing kexec on ppc64.
Two cpus would deadlock in scheduler code trying to grab already taken
spinlocks.

The double_rq_lock code uses the address of the runqueue to order the
taking of multiple locks.  This address is a per cpu variable:

if (rq1 < rq2) {
spin_lock(&rq1->lock);
spin_lock(&rq2->lock);
} else {
spin_lock(&rq2->lock);
spin_lock(&rq1->lock);
}

On the other hand, the code in wake_sleeping_dependent uses the cpu id
order to grab locks:

for_each_cpu_mask(i, sibling_map)
spin_lock(&cpu_rq(i)->lock);

This means we rely on the address of per cpu data increasing as cpu ids
increase.  While this will be true for the generic percpu implementation it
may not be true for arch specific implementations.

One way to solve this is to always take runqueues in cpu id order. To do
this we add a cpu variable to the runqueue and check it in the
double runqueue locking functions.
