u64 and s64 are not necessarily 'long long' on some 64-bit
platforms, so explicit the type to kill the compiler warnings.

12 years agotty_set_ldisc() receive_room fix
Paul Fulghum [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:33:38 +0000]
tty_set_ldisc() receive_room fix

Fix tty_set_ldisc in tty_io.c so that tty->receive_room is only cleared if
actually changing line disciplines.

Without this fix a problem occurs when requesting the line discipline to
change to the same line discipline.  In this case tty->receive_room is
cleared but ldisc->open() is not called to set tty->receive_room back to a
sane value.  The result is that tty->receive_room is stuck at 0 preventing
the tty flip buffer from passing receive data to the line discipline.

For example: a switch from N_TTY to N_TTY followed by a select() call for
read input results in data never being received because tty->receive_room
is stuck at zero.

A switch from N_TTY to N_TTY followed by a read() call works because the
read() call itself sets tty->receive_room correctly (but select does not).

Previously (< 2.6.18) this was not a problem because the tty flip buffer
pushed data to the line discipline without regard for tty->receive room.

12 years agopretend cpuset has some form of hugetlb page reservation
Ken Chen [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:33:34 +0000]
pretend cpuset has some form of hugetlb page reservation

When cpuset is configured, it breaks the strict hugetlb page reservation as
the accounting is done on a global variable.  Such reservation is
completely rubbish in the presence of cpuset because the reservation is not
checked against page availability for the current cpuset.  Application can
still potentially OOM'ed by kernel with lack of free htlb page in cpuset
that the task is in.  Attempt to enforce strict accounting with cpuset is
almost impossible (or too ugly) because cpuset is too fluid that task or
memory node can be dynamically moved between cpusets.

The change of semantics for shared hugetlb mapping with cpuset is
undesirable.  However, in order to preserve some of the semantics, we fall
back to check against current free page availability as a best attempt and
hopefully to minimize the impact of changing semantics that cpuset has on
hugetlb.

mca: add integrated device bus matching

The MCA bus has a few "integrated" functions, which are effectively virtual
slots on the bus.  The problem is that these special functions don't have
dedicated pos IDs, so we have to manufacture ids for them outside the pos
space ...  and these ids can't be matched by the standard matching function,
so add a special registration that requests a list of pos ids or a particular

Remove hardcoding of hard_smp_processor_id on UP systems

With the advent of kdump, the assumption that the boot CPU when booting an UP
kernel is always the CPU with a particular hardware ID (often 0) (usually
referred to as BSP on some architectures) is not valid anymore.  The reason
being that the dump capture kernel boots on the crashed CPU (the CPU that
invoked crash_kexec), which may be or may not be that particular CPU.

Move definition of hard_smp_processor_id for the UP case to
architecture-specific code ("asm/smp.h") where it belongs, so that each
architecture can provide its own implementation.

fix leaky resv_huge_pages when cpuset is in use

The internal hugetlb resv_huge_pages variable can permanently leak nonzero
value in the error path of hugetlb page fault handler when hugetlb page is
used in combination of cpuset.  The leaked count can permanently trap N
number of hugetlb pages in unusable "reserved" state.

Steps to reproduce the bug:

  (1) create two cpuset, user1 and user2
  (2) reserve 50 htlb pages in cpuset user1
  (3) attempt to shmget/shmat 50 htlb page inside cpuset user2
  (4) kernel oom the user process in step 3
  (5) ipcrm the shm segment

At this point resv_huge_pages will have a count of 49, even though
there are no active hugetlbfs file nor hugetlb shared memory segment
in the system.  The leak is permanent and there is no recovery method
other than system reboot. The leaked count will hold up all future use
of that many htlb pages in all cpusets.

The culprit is that the error path of alloc_huge_page() did not
properly undo the change it made to resv_huge_page, causing
inconsistent state.

12 years agodm log: fix resume failed log device
Jonathan Brassow [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:33:08 +0000]
dm log: fix resume failed log device

This patch removes the possibility of having uninitialized log state if the
log device has failed.

When a mirror resumes operation, it calls 'resume' on the logging module.  If
disk based logging is being used, the log device is read to fill in the log
state.  If the log device has failed, we cannot simply return, because this
would leave the in-memory log state uninitialized.  Instead, we assume all
regions are out-of-sync and reset the log state.  Failure to do this could
result in the logging code reporting a region as in-sync, even though it
isn't; which could result in a corrupted mirror.

Jonathan Brassow [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:33:07 +0000]
dm raid1: fix to commit pending clear region requests

With the code as it is, it is possible for oustanding clear region requests
never to get flushed when a mirror is deactivated or suspended.  This means
there will always be some resync work required when a mirror is activated,
even though it may very well be in-sync.

Always requesting the flush doesn't hurt us.  This is because the log tracks
whether any changes occurred and, if not, no flush is performed.

never does the deferred work because it is still waiting for the sync
write_bits.

_mirror_sets is removed as it no longer needed, and we always flush the

Christoph Lameter [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:32:44 +0000]
SLUB: add CONFIG_SLUB_DEBUG

CONFIG_SLUB_DEBUG can be used to switch off the debugging and sysfs components
of SLUB.  Thus SLUB will be able to replace SLOB.  SLUB can arrange objects in
a denser way than SLOB and the code size should be minimal without debugging
and sysfs support.

Note that CONFIG_SLUB_DEBUG is materially different from CONFIG_SLAB_DEBUG.
CONFIG_SLAB_DEBUG is used to enable slab debugging in SLAB.  SLUB enables
debugging via a boot parameter.  SLUB debug code should always be present.

CONFIG_SLUB_DEBUG can be modified in the embedded config section.

SLUB: add support for dynamic cacheline size determination

SLUB currently assumes that the cacheline size is static.  However, i386 f.e.
supports dynamic cache line size determination.

Use cache_line_size() instead of L1_CACHE_BYTES in the allocator.

That also explains the purpose of SLAB_HWCACHE_ALIGN.  So we will need to keep
that one around to allow dynamic aligning of objects depending on boot
determination of the cache line size.

Documentation/i386/boot.txt: update and correct

In the process of rewriting the x86 setup code, I found a number of
inaccuracies and outdated recommendations in the boot protocol
documentation.  Revamp to make it more up to date.

In particular, the common use of the heap actually requires (slightly)
more than 4K of heap plus stack, which is the recommended amount in
the document; currently the code compensates by being smaller than
specified, but we can't assume that will be true forever.  Thus,
recommend that if we have a modern bzImage kernel, that the bootloader
maximizes the available space.

revert 'sched: redundant reschedule when set_user_nice() boosts a prio of a task from the "expired" array'

Revert commit bd53f96ca54a21c07e7a0ae1886fa623d370b85f.

Con says:

This is no good, sorry. The one I saw originally was with the staircase
deadline cpu scheduler in situ and was different.

  #define TASK_PREEMPTS_CURR(p, rq) \
     ((p)->prio < (rq)->curr->prio)
     (((p)->prio < (rq)->curr->prio) && ((p)->array == (rq)->active))

This will fail to wake up a runqueue for a task that has been migrated to the
expired array of a runqueue which is otherwise idle which can happen with smp

12 years agoRevert "fbdev: ignore VESA modes if framebuffer is disabled"
Linus Torvalds [Wed, 9 May 2007 03:12:30 +0000]
Revert "fbdev: ignore VESA modes if framebuffer is disabled"

This reverts commit 464bdd33e9baad9806c7adbd8dfc37081a55f27e.

Peter Anvin correctly points out that VESA modes have nothing to do with
frame buffers per se - they are often just regular extended text modes.
Disabling them just because we don't have frame buffer support is very
wrong.

12 years agoRemove suid/sgid bits on [f]truncate()
Linus Torvalds [Wed, 9 May 2007 03:10:00 +0000]
Remove suid/sgid bits on [f]truncate()

.. to match what we do on write().  This way, people who write to files
by using [f]truncate + writable mmap have the same semantics as if they
were using the write() family of system calls.

[CRYPTO] cryptomgr: Fix use after free

By the time kthread_run returns the param may have already been freed
so writing the returned thread_struct pointer to param is wrong.

In fact, we don't need it in param anyway so this patch simply puts it
on the stack.
