EXPORTFS: handle NULL returns from fh_to_dentry()/fh_to_parent()

While 440037287c5 "[PATCH] switch all filesystems over to
d_obtain_alias" removed some cases where fh_to_dentry() and
fh_to_parent() could return NULL, there are still a few NULL returns
left in individual filesystems.  Thus it was a mistake for that commit
to remove the handling of NULL returns in the callers.

Revert those parts of 440037287c5 which removed the NULL handling.

(We could, alternatively, modify all implementations to return -ESTALE
instead of NULL, but that proves to require fixing a number of
filesystems, and in some cases it's arguably more natural to return
NULL.)

Thanks to David for original patch and Linus, Christoph, and Hugh for
review.

Fix a race condition in FASYNC handling

Changeset a238b790d5f99c7832f9b73ac8847025815b85f7 (Call fasync()
functions without the BKL) introduced a race which could leave
file->f_flags in a state inconsistent with what the underlying
driver/filesystem believes.  Revert that change, and also fix the same
races in ioctl_fioasync() and ioctl_fionbio().

This is a minimal, short-term fix; the real fix will not involve the
BKL.

Linus Torvalds [Fri, 5 Dec 2008 22:49:18 +0000]
Enforce a minimum SG_IO timeout

There's no point in having too short SG_IO timeouts, since if the
command does end up timing out, we'll end up through the reset sequence
that is several seconds long in order to abort the command that timed
out.

As a result, shorter timeouts than a few seconds simply do not make
sense, as the recovery would be longer than the timeout itself.

Add a BLK_MIN_SG_TIMEOUT to match the existign BLK_DEFAULT_SG_TIMEOUT.

Revert "ACPI: battery: Convert discharge energy rate to current properly"

This reverts commit 558073dd56707864f09d563b64e7c37c021e89d2, along with
the failed try to fix the regression it caused ("ACPI: Fix ACPI battery
regression introduced by commit 558073"), which just made things worse.

Commit aaad077638be1a25871bcae5e43952d6b63abfca (that failed "Fix ACPI
battery regression") got the voltage conversion confused, and fixed the
problem with Rafael's battery monitor apparently just by mistake.

So revert them both, getting us back to the 2.6.27 state in this, and
let's revisit it when people understand what's going on.

When project quota is active and is being used for directory tree
quota control, we disallow rename outside the current directory
tree. This requires a check to be made after all the inodes
involved in the rename are locked. We fail to unlock the inodes
correctly if we disallow the rename when the target is outside the
current directory tree. This results in a hang on the next access
to the inodes involved in failed rename.

Commit 33c2dca4957bd0da3e1af7b96d0758d97e708ef6 (trim file propagation
in block/compat_ioctl.c) removed the handling of some ioctls from
compat_blkdev_driver_ioctl.  That caused them to be rejected as unknown
by the compat layer.

10 years agotime: catch xtime_nsec underflows and fix them
john stultz [Tue, 2 Dec 2008 02:34:41 +0000]
time: catch xtime_nsec underflows and fix them

Impact: fix time warp bug

Alex Shi, along with Yanmin Zhang have been noticing occasional time
inconsistencies recently. Through their great diagnosis, they found that
the xtime_nsec value used in update_wall_time was occasionally going
negative. After looking through the code for awhile, I realized we have
the possibility for an underflow when three conditions are met in
update_wall_time():

  1) We have accumulated a second's worth of nanoseconds, so we
     incremented xtime.tv_sec and appropriately decrement xtime_nsec.
     (This doesn't cause xtime_nsec to go negative, but it can cause it
      to be small).

  2) The remaining offset value is large, but just slightly less then
     cycle_interval.

  3) clocksource_adjust() is speeding up the clock, causing a
     corrective amount (compensating for the increase in the multiplier
     being multiplied against the unaccumulated offset value) to be
     subtracted from xtime_nsec.

This can cause xtime_nsec to underflow.

Unfortunately, since we notify the NTP subsystem via second_overflow()
whenever we accumulate a full second, and this effects the error
accumulation that has already occured, we cannot simply revert the
accumulated second from xtime nor move the second accumulation to after
the clocksource_adjust call without a change in behavior.

This leaves us with (at least) two options:

1) Simply return from clocksource_adjust() without making a change if we
   notice the adjustment would cause xtime_nsec to go negative.

This would work, but I'm concerned that if a large adjustment was needed
(due to the error being large), it may be possible to get stuck with an
ever increasing error that becomes too large to correct (since it may
always force xtime_nsec negative). This may just be paranoia on my part.

2) Catch xtime_nsec if it is negative, then add back the amount its
   negative to both xtime_nsec and the error.

This second method is consistent with how we've handled earlier rounding
issues, and also has the benefit that the error being added is always in
the oposite direction also always equal or smaller then the correction
being applied. So the risk of a corner case where things get out of
control is lessened.

This patch fixes bug 11970, as tested by Yanmin Zhang

sparc64: Fix VIS emulation bugs

This patch fixes some bugs in VIS emulation that cause the GCC test
failure

FAIL: gcc.target/sparc/pdist-3.c execution test

for both 32-bit and 64-bit testing on hardware lacking these
instructions.  The emulation code for the pdist instruction uses
RS1(insn) for both source registers rs1 and rs2, which is obviously
wrong and leads to the instruction doing nothing (the observed
problem), and further inspection of the code shows that RS1 uses a
shift of 24 and RD a shift of 25, which clearly cannot both be right;
examining SPARC documentation indicates the correct shift for RS1 is
14.

This patch fixes the bug if single-stepping over the affected
instruction in the debugger, but not if the testcase is run
standalone.  For that, Wind River has another patch I hope they will
send as a followup to this patch submission.

Hi Alan,

Looking at the kernel driver code for oprofile it can return the "i386/p6" for
the cpu_type. However, looking at the user-space oprofile code there isn't the
matching entry in libop/op_cpu_type.c or the events/unit_mask files in
events/i386 directory.

The Intel AP-485 says this is a "Intel Pentium M processor model D". Seems like
the oprofile kernel driver should be identifying the processor as "i386/p6_mobile"

The driver identification code doesn't look quite right in nmi_init.c

http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/sfr/linux-next.git;a=blob;f=arch/x86/oprofile/nmi_int.c;h=022cd41ea9b4106e5884277096e80e9088a7c7a9;hb=HEAD

has:

409         case 10 ... 13:
410                 *cpu_type = "i386/p6";
411                 break;

Referring to the Intel AP-485:
case 10 and 11 should produce "i386/piii"
case 13 should produce "i386/p6_mobile"

I didn't see anything for case 12.

Something like the attached patch. I don't have a celeron machine to verify that
changes in this area of the kernel fix thing.

Milan Broz [Wed, 3 Dec 2008 11:55:08 +0000]
block: fix setting of max_segment_size and seg_boundary mask

Fix setting of max_segment_size and seg_boundary mask for stacked md/dm
devices.

When stacking devices (LVM over MD over SCSI) some of the request queue
parameters are not set up correctly in some cases by default, namely
max_segment_size and and seg_boundary mask.

If you create MD device over SCSI, these attributes are zeroed.

Problem become when there is over this mapping next device-mapper mapping
- queue attributes are set in DM this way:

request_queue   max_segment_size  seg_boundary_mask
SCSI                65536             0xffffffff
MD RAID1                0                      0
LVM                 65536                 -1 (64bit)

Unfortunately bio_add_page (resp.  bio_phys_segments) calculates number of
physical segments according to these parameters.

During the generic_make_request() is segment cout recalculated and can
increase bio->bi_phys_segments count over the allowed limit.  (After
bio_clone() in stack operation.)

Thi is specially problem in CCISS driver, where it produce OOPS here

    BUG_ON(creq->nr_phys_segments > MAXSGENTRIES);

(MAXSEGENTRIES is 31 by default.)

Sometimes even this command is enough to cause oops:

  dd iflag=direct if=/dev/<vg>/<lv> of=/dev/null bs=128000 count=10

This command generates bios with 250 sectors, allocated in 32 4k-pages
(last page uses only 1024 bytes).

For LVM layer, it allocates bio with 31 segments (still OK for CCISS),
unfortunatelly on lower layer it is recalculated to 32 segments and this
violates CCISS restriction and triggers BUG_ON().

The patch tries to fix it by:

 * initializing attributes above in queue request constructor
   blk_queue_make_request()

 * make sure that blk_queue_stack_limits() inherits setting

 (DM uses its own function to set the limits because it
 blk_queue_stack_limits() was introduced later.  It should probably switch

10 years agoblock: internal dequeue shouldn't start timer
Tejun Heo [Wed, 3 Dec 2008 11:41:26 +0000]
block: internal dequeue shouldn't start timer

blkdev_dequeue_request() and elv_dequeue_request() are equivalent and
both start the timeout timer.  Barrier code dequeues the original
barrier request but doesn't passes the request itself to lower level
driver, only broken down proxy requests; however, as the original
barrier code goes through the same dequeue path and timeout timer is
started on it.  If barrier sequence takes long enough, this timer
expires but the low level driver has no idea about this request and
oops follows.

Timeout timer shouldn't have been started on the original barrier
request as it never goes through actual IO.  This patch unexports
elv_dequeue_request(), which has no external user anyway, and makes it
operate on elevator proper w/o adding the timer and make
blkdev_dequeue_request() call elv_dequeue_request() and add timer.
Internal users which don't pass the request to driver - barrier code
and end_that_request_last() - are converted to use
elv_dequeue_request().

x86: fix broken flushing in GART nofullflush path

Impact: remove stale IOTLB entries

In the non-default nofullflush case the GART is only flushed when
next_bit wraps around. But it can happen that an unmap operation unmaps
memory which is behind the current next_bit location. If these addresses
are reused it may result in stale GART IO/TLB entries. Fix this by
setting the GART next_bit always behind an unmapped location.

vmscan: evict streaming IO first

Count the insertion of new pages in the statistics used to drive the
pageout scanning code.  This should help the kernel quickly evict
streaming file IO.

We count on the fact that new file pages start on the inactive file LRU
and new anonymous pages start on the active anon list.  This means
streaming file IO will increment the recent scanned file statistic, while
leaving the recent rotated file statistic alone, driving pageout scanning
to the file LRUs.

Devices which share the same queue, like floppies and mtd devices, get
registered multiple times in the bdi interface, but bdi accounts only the
last registered device of the devices sharing one queue.

On remove, all earlier registered devices leak, stay around in sysfs, and
cause "duplicate filename" errors if the devices are re-created.

This prevents the creation of multiple bdi interfaces per queue, and the
bdi device will carry the dev_t name of the block device which is the
first one registered, of the pool of devices using the same queue.

10 years agoamd74xx: workaround unreliable AltStatus register for nVidia controllers
Bartlomiej Zolnierkiewicz [Tue, 2 Dec 2008 19:40:03 +0000]
amd74xx: workaround unreliable AltStatus register for nVidia controllers

It seems that on some nVidia controllers using AltStatus register
can be unreliable so default to Status register if the PCI device
is in Compatibility Mode.  In order to achieve this:

* Add ide_pci_is_in_compatibility_mode() inline helper to <linux/ide.h>.

* Add IDE_HFLAG_BROKEN_ALTSTATUS host flag and set it in amd74xx host
  driver for nVidia controllers in Compatibility Mode.

* Teach actual_try_to_identify() and drive_is_ready() about the new flag.

This fixes the regression caused by removal of CONFIG_IDEPCI_SHARE_IRQ
config option in 2.6.25 and using AltStatus register unconditionally when
available (kernel.org bugs #11659 and #10216).

[ Moreover for CONFIG_IDEPCI_SHARE_IRQ=y (which is what most people
  and distributions use) it never worked correctly. ]

Thanks to Remy LABENE and Lars Winterfeld for help with debugging the problem.

10 years agoi82875p_edac: fix module remove
Jarkko Lavinen [Mon, 1 Dec 2008 21:14:08 +0000]
i82875p_edac: fix module remove

Fix module removal bugs of i82875p_edac.  Also i82975x_edac code seems to
have the same module removal bugs as in i82875p_edac.

The problems were:

1. In module removal i82875p_remove_one() is never called.

   Variable i82875p_registered is newer changed from 1, which
   guarantees i82875p_remove_one() is not called (and even if it were
   called, it would be called in wrong order).

   As a result, the edac_mc workque is not stopped and keeps probing.
   If kernel debugging options are not enabled, user may not notice
   anything going wrong.

   if debugging options are enabled and I do "rmmod i82875p_edac", I
   get:

      edac debug: edac_pci_workq_function() checking
      BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at f882d16f
      ...
      call trace:
       [<f8834df3>] ? edac_mc_workq_function+0x55/0x7e [edac_core]
       [<c0233974>] ? run_workqueue+0xd7/0x1a5
       [<c023392f>] ? run_workqueue+0x92/0x1a5

       [<c02367ce>] ? kthread+0x0/0x61
       [<c0204587>] ? kernel_thread_helper+0x7/0x10

   Fix for this is to get rid of needles variable i82875p_registered
   altogether and run i82875p_remove_one() *before*
   pci_unregister_driver().

2. edac_mc_del_mc() uses mci after freeing mci

   edac_mc_del_mc() calls calls edac_remove_sysfs_mci_device().  The
   kobject refcount of mci drops to 0 and mci is freed.  After this
   mci is accessed via debug print and i82875p_remove_one() still
   uses mci->pvt and tries to free mci again with edac_mc_free().

   The fix for this is add kobject_get(&mci->edac_mci_kobj) after
   edac_mc_alloc(). Then the mci is still available after returning
   from edac_mc_del_mc() with refcount 1, and mci->pvt is still
   available. When i82875p_remove_one() finally calls edac_mc_free(),
   this will cause kobject_put() and mci is released properly.

Jarkko Lavinen [Mon, 1 Dec 2008 21:14:06 +0000]
i82875p_edac: fix overflow device resource setup

When I do "modprobe i82875p_edac" on my Asus P4C800 MB on kernels 2.6.26
or later, the module load fails due to BAR 0 collision.  On 2.6.25 the
module loads just fine.

The overflow device on the MB seems to be hidden and its resources are not
allocated at normal PCI bus init.  Log shows the missing resource problem:

  EDAC DEBUG: i82875p_probe1()
  PCI: 0000:00:06.0 reg 10 32bit mmio: [fecf0000, fecf0fff]
  pci 0000:00:06.0: device not available because of BAR 0
[0xfecf0000-0xfecf0fff] collisions
  EDAC i82875p: i82875p_setup_overfl_dev(): Failed to enable overflow
device

The patch below fixes this by calling pci_bus_assign_resources() after
the overflow device is revealed and added to the bus. With this patch
I am again able to load and use the module.

10 years agofbdev: fix FB console blanking
Dmitry Baryshkov [Mon, 1 Dec 2008 21:14:05 +0000]
fbdev: fix FB console blanking

The commit aef7db4bd5a3b6068dfa05919a3d685199eed116 fixed the problem with
recursive locking in fb blanking code if blank is caused by user setting
the /sys/class/graphics/fb*/blank.  However this broke the fbcon timeout
blanking.

If you use a driver that defines ->fb_blank operation and at the same time
that driver relies on other driver (e.g.  backlight or lcd class) to blank
the screen, when the fbcon times out and tries to blank the fb, it will
call only fb driver blanker and won't notify the other driver.  Thus FB
output is disabled, but the screen isn't blanked.

Restore fbcon blanking and at the same time apply the proper fix for the
above problem: if fbcon_blank is called with FBINFO_FLAG_USEREVENT, we are
already called through notification from fb_blank, thus we don't have to
blank the fb again.
