work on x86_64 hosts (with support for building 32-bit binaries).  This is
especially needed since 64-bit UMLs don't support 32-bit emulation for guest
binaries, currently.  This has been tested in all possible cases and works.

Only exception is that I've built but not tested a 64-bit binary, because I
hadn't a 64-bit filesystem available.

[PATCH] uml: workaround host bug in "TT mode vs. NPTL link fix"

A big bug has been diagnosed on hosts running the SKAS patch and built with
CONFIG_REGPARM, due to some missing prevent_tail_call().

On these hosts, this workaround is needed to avoid triggering that bug,
because "to" is kept by GCC only in EBX, which is corrupted at the return of
mmap2().

Since to trigger this bug int 0x80 must be used when doing the call, it rarely
manifests itself, so I'd prefer to get this merged to workaround that host
bug, since it should cause no functional change.  Still, you might prefer to
drop it, I'll leave this to you.

      Russell King <rmk+lkml@arm.linux.org.uk>

This construct is refused by GCC 4, so here's the (corrected) fix.  Thanks to
Russell for noticing a stupid mistake I did when first sending this.

As he noted, the code is largely suboptimal however it currently works, and
will be fixed shortly.  Just read the access_ok check on fp which is NULL, or
the pointer arithmetic below which should be done with a cast to void*:

  frame = (struct rt_sigframe __user *)
  round_down(stack_top - sizeof(struct rt_sigframe), 16) - 8;

The code shows clearly that has been taken from
arch/x86_64/kernel/signal.c:setup_rt_frame(), maybe in a bit of a hurry.

14 years ago[PATCH] Fix soft lockup due to NTFS: VFS part and explanation
Anton Altaparmakov [Wed, 13 Jul 2005 08:10:44 +0000]
[PATCH] Fix soft lockup due to NTFS: VFS part and explanation

Something has changed in the core kernel such that we now get concurrent
inode write outs, one e.g via pdflush and one via sys_sync or whatever.
This causes a nasty deadlock in ntfs.  The only clean solution
unfortunately requires a minor vfs api extension.

First the deadlock analysis:

Prerequisive knowledge: NTFS has a file $MFT (inode 0) loaded at mount
time.  The NTFS driver uses the page cache for storing the file contents as
usual.  More interestingly this file contains the table of on-disk inodes
as a sequence of MFT_RECORDs.  Thus NTFS driver accesses the on-disk inodes
by accessing the MFT_RECORDs in the page cache pages of the loaded inode
$MFT.

The situation: VFS inode X on a mounted ntfs volume is dirty.  For same
inode X, the ntfs_inode is dirty and thus corresponding on-disk inode,
which is as explained above in a dirty PAGE_CACHE_PAGE belonging to the
table of inodes ($MFT, inode 0).

What happens:

Process 1: sys_sync()/umount()/whatever...  calls __sync_single_inode() for
$MFT -> do_writepages() -> write_page for the dirty page containing the
on-disk inode X, the page is now locked -> ntfs_write_mst_block() which
clears PageUptodate() on the page to prevent anyone else getting hold of it
whilst it does the write out (this is necessary as the on-disk inode needs
"fixups" applied before the write to disk which are removed again after the
write and PageUptodate is then set again).  It then analyses the page
looking for dirty on-disk inodes and when it finds one it calls
ntfs_may_write_mft_record() to see if it is safe to write this on-disk
inode.  This then calls ilookup5() to check if the corresponding VFS inode
is in icache().  This in turn calls ifind() which waits on the inode lock
via wait_on_inode whilst holding the global inode_lock.

Process 2: pdflush results in a call to __sync_single_inode for the same
VFS inode X on the ntfs volume.  This locks the inode (I_LOCK) then calls
write-inode -> ntfs_write_inode -> map_mft_record() -> read_cache_page() of
the page (in page cache of table of inodes $MFT, inode 0) containing the
on-disk inode.  This page has PageUptodate() clear because of Process 1
(see above) so read_cache_page() blocks when tries to take the page lock
for the page so it can call ntfs_read_page().

Thus Process 1 is holding the page lock on the page containing the on-disk
inode X and it is waiting on the inode X to be unlocked in ifind() so it
can write the page out and then unlock the page.

And Process 2 is holding the inode lock on inode X and is waiting for the
page to be unlocked so it can call ntfs_readpage() or discover that
Process 1 set PageUptodate() again and use the page.

Thus we have a deadlock due to ifind() waiting on the inode lock.

The only sensible solution: NTFS does not care whether the VFS inode is
locked or not when it calls ilookup5() (it doesn't use the VFS inode at
all, it just uses it to find the corresponding ntfs_inode which is of
course attached to the VFS inode (both are one single struct); and it uses
the ntfs_inode which is subject to its own locking so I_LOCK is irrelevant)
hence we want a modified ilookup5_nowait() which is the same as ilookup5()
but it does not wait on the inode lock.

Without such functionality I would have to keep my own ntfs_inode cache in
the NTFS driver just so I can find ntfs_inodes independent of their VFS
inodes which would be slow, memory and cpu cycle wasting, and incredibly
stupid given the icache already exists in the VFS.

Below is a patch that does the ilookup5_nowait() implementation in
fs/inode.c and exports it.

ilookup5_nowait.diff:

Introduce ilookup5_nowait() which is basically the same as ilookup5() but
it does not wait on the inode's lock (i.e. it omits the wait_on_inode()
done in ifind()).

This is needed to avoid a nasty deadlock in NTFS.

14 years ago[PATCH] inotify
Robert Love [Tue, 12 Jul 2005 21:06:03 +0000]
[PATCH] inotify

inotify is intended to correct the deficiencies of dnotify, particularly
its inability to scale and its terrible user interface:

        * dnotify requires the opening of one fd per each directory
          that you intend to watch. This quickly results in too many
          open files and pins removable media, preventing unmount.
        * dnotify is directory-based. You only learn about changes to
          directories. Sure, a change to a file in a directory affects
          the directory, but you are then forced to keep a cache of
          stat structures.
        * dnotify's interface to user-space is awful.  Signals?

inotify provides a more usable, simple, powerful solution to file change
notification:

        * inotify's interface is a system call that returns a fd, not SIGIO.
  You get a single fd, which is select()-able.
        * inotify has an event that says "the filesystem that the item
          you were watching is on was unmounted."
        * inotify can watch directories or files.

Inotify is currently used by Beagle (a desktop search infrastructure),
Gamin (a FAM replacement), and other projects.

14 years agoreiserfs: run scripts/Lindent on reiserfs code
Linus Torvalds [Wed, 13 Jul 2005 03:21:28 +0000]
reiserfs: run scripts/Lindent on reiserfs code

This was a pure indentation change, using:

scripts/Lindent fs/reiserfs/*.c include/linux/reiserfs_*.h

to make reiserfs match the regular Linux indentation style.  As Jeff
Mahoney <jeffm@suse.com> writes:

 The ReiserFS code is a mix of a number of different coding styles, sometimes
 different even from line-to-line. Since the code has been relatively stable
 for quite some time and there are few outstanding patches to be applied, it
 is time to reformat the code to conform to the Linux style standard outlined
 in Documentation/CodingStyle.

 This patch contains the result of running scripts/Lindent against
 fs/reiserfs/*.c and include/linux/reiserfs_*.h. There are places where the
 code can be made to look better, but I'd rather keep those patches separate
 so that there isn't a subtle by-hand hand accident in the middle of a huge
 patch. To be clear: This patch is reformatting *only*.

 A number of patches may follow that continue to make the code more consistent
 with the Linux coding style.

 Hans wasn't particularly enthusiastic about these patches, but said he
 wouldn't really oppose them either.

Christoph Lameter [Tue, 12 Jul 2005 23:03:00 +0000]
[IA64] Altix pcibus_to_node implementation

The Altix subarch does not provide node information via ACPI. Instead hooks
are used to fixup pci structures. This patch determines the nodes for Altix
PCI busses.

Remote Bridges:
---------------
Altix supports remote I/O nodes without memory or processors but with bridges.
The TIOCA type of bridge is an AGP bridge and the PROM provides information
about the closest node. That information will be returned by pcibus_to_node.

The TIOCP remote bridge type is a PCI bridge but the PROM does not provide a
closest node id. pcibus_to_node will return -1 for devices on those bridges
meaning that device control structures may be allocated on any node.

Safeguard:
----------
Should the fixups result in invalid node information for a pci controller then
a warning will be printed and pcibus_to_node will return -1.

This patch also fixes the "FIXME" in sn_dma_alloc_coherent. This means that
dma_alloc_coherent will now use alloc_pages_node to allocate memory local to
the node that the PCI device is connected to.

When a noninitial thread does exec, it becomes the new group leader.  If
there is a ITIMER_REAL timer running, it points at the old group leader and
when it fires it can follow a stale pointer.  The timer data needs to be

This has to synchronize with any concurrent firing of the timer to make

might have been reaped already.

[PATCH] uml: tlb flushing fix

This patch fixes a fairly serious tlb flushing bug that makes aio use under
uml very unreliable -- SEGVs, Oops and panic()s occur as a result of stale

uml does not implement the activate_mm() hook.  This patch introduces a
simple but correct approach (read: hammer) for implementing activate_mm()
in uml by doing a force_flush_all() if the new mm is different from old.
With this patch in place, uml is able to succeed at the aio test case that
was randomly faulting for me before.

14 years ago[PATCH] bugfix: two read_inode() calls without clear_inode() call between
Artem B. Bityuckiy [Tue, 12 Jul 2005 20:58:12 +0000]
[PATCH] bugfix: two read_inode() calls without clear_inode() call between

Bug symptoms
~~~~~~~~~~~~
For the same inode VFS calls read_inode() twice and doesn't call
clear_inode() between the two read_inode() invocations.

Bug description
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Suppose we have an inode which has zero reference count but is still in
the inode cache. Suppose kswapd invokes shrink_icache_memory() to free
some RAM. In prune_icache() inodes are removed from i_hash. prune_icache
() is then going to call clear_inode(), but drops the inode_lock
spinlock before this. If in this moment another task calls iget() for an
inode which was just removed from i_hash by prune_icache(), then iget()
invokes read_inode() for this inode, because it is *already removed*
from i_hash.

The end result is: we call iget(#N) then iput(#N); inode #N has zero
i_count now and is in the inode cache; kswapd starts. kswapd removes the
inode #N from i_hash ans is preempted; we call iget(#N) again;
read_inode() is invoked as the result; but we expect clear_inode()
before.

Fix
~~~~~~~
To fix the bug I remove inodes from i_hash later, when clear_inode() is
actually called. I remove them from i_hash under spinlock protection.
Since the i_state is set to I_FREEING, it is safe to do this. The others
will sleep waiting for the inode state change.

I also postpone removing inodes from i_sb_list. It is not compulsory to
do so but I do it for readability reasons. Inodes are added/removed to
the lists together everywhere in the code and there is no point to
change this rule. This is harmless because the only user of i_sb_list
which somehow may interfere with me (invalidate_list()) is excluded by
the iprune_sem mutex.

The same race is possible in invalidate_list() so I do the same for it.

Miklos Szeredi [Tue, 12 Jul 2005 20:58:10 +0000]
[PATCH] __wait_on_freeing_inode fix

This patch fixes queer behavior in __wait_on_freeing_inode().

If I_LOCK was not set it called yield(), effectively busy waiting for the
removal of the inode from the hash.  This change was introduced within
"[PATCH] eliminate inode waitqueue hashtable" Changeset 1.1938.166.16 last
october by wli.

The solution is to restore the old behavior, of unconditionally waiting on
the waitqueue.  It doesn't matter if I_LOCK is not set initally, the task
will go to sleep, and wake up when wake_up_inode() is called from
generic_delete_inode() after removing the inode from the hash chain.

Comment is also updated to better reflect current behavior.

This condition is very hard to trigger normally (simultaneous clear_inode()
with iget()) so probably only heavy stress testing can reveal any change of
behavior.
