 - we'd return on any instruction fetch fault

 - we'd use both the value of 16 and the PF_INSTR symbol which are

xen: fix UP setup of shared_info

We need to set up the shared_info pointer once we've mapped the real
shared_info into its fixmap slot.  That needs to happen once the general
pagetable setup has been done.  Previously, the UP shared_info was set
up one in xen_start_kernel, but that was left pointing to the dummy
shared info.  Unfortunately there's no really good place to do a later
setup of the shared_info in UP, so just do it once the pagetable setup
has been done.

11 years agoxen: fix RMW when unmasking events
Jeremy Fitzhardinge [Mon, 17 Mar 2008 23:36:52 +0000]
xen: fix RMW when unmasking events

xen_irq_enable_direct and xen_sysexit were using "andw $0x00ff,
XEN_vcpu_info_pending(vcpu)" to unmask events and test for pending ones
in one instuction.

Unfortunately, the pending flag must be modified with a locked operation
since it can be set by another CPU, and the unlocked form of this
operation was causing the pending flag to get lost, allowing the processor
to return to usermode with pending events and ultimately deadlock.

The simple fix would be to make it a locked operation, but that's rather
costly and unnecessary.  The fix here is to split the mask-clearing and
pending-testing into two instructions; the interrupt window between
them is of no concern because either way pending or new events will
be processed.

This should fix lingering bugs in using direct vcpu structure access too.

[IPSEC]: Fix BEET output

The IPv6 BEET output function is incorrectly including the inner
header in the payload to be protected.  This causes a crash as
the packet doesn't actually have that many bytes for a second
header.

The IPv4 BEET output on the other hand is broken when it comes
to handling an inner IPv6 header since it always assumes an
inner IPv4 header.

This patch fixes both by making sure that neither BEET output
function touches the inner header at all.  All access is now
done through the protocol-independent cb structure.  Two new
attributes are added to make this work, the IP header length
and the IPv4 option length.  They're filled in by the inner
mode's output function.

Thanks to Joakim Koskela for finding this problem.

x86: fix performance drop for glx

fix the 3D performance drop reported at:

   http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10328

fb drivers are using ioremap()/ioremap_nocache(), followed by mtrr_add with
WC attribute. Recent changes in page attribute code made both
ioremap()/ioremap_nocache() mappings as UC (instead of previous UC-). This
breaks the graphics performance, as the effective memory type is UC instead
of expected WC.

The correct way to fix this is to add ioremap_wc() (which uses UC- in the
absence of PAT kernel support and WC with PAT) and change all the
fb drivers to use this new ioremap_wc() API.

We can take this correct and longer route for post 2.6.25. For now,
revert back to the UC- behavior for ioremap/ioremap_nocache.

we could call find_max_pfn() directly instead of setup_memory() to get
max_pfn needed for mtrr trimming.

otherwise setup_memory() is called two times... that is duplicated...

[ mingo@elte.hu: both Thomas and me simulated a double call to

Tom Tucker [Wed, 26 Mar 2008 02:27:19 +0000]
SVCRDMA: Check num_sge when setting LAST_CTXT bit

The RDMACTXT_F_LAST_CTXT bit was getting set incorrectly
when the last chunk in the read-list spanned multiple pages. This
resulted in a kernel panic when the wrong context was used to
build the RPC iovec page list.

RDMA_READ is used to fetch RPC data from the client for
NFS_WRITE requests. A scatter-gather is used to map the
advertised client side buffer to the server-side iovec and
associated page list.

WR contexts are used to convey which scatter-gather entries are
handled by each WR. When the write data is large, a single RPC may
require multiple RDMA_READ requests so the contexts for a single RPC
are chained together in a linked list. The last context in this list
is marked with a bit RDMACTXT_F_LAST_CTXT so that when this WR completes,
the CQ handler code can enqueue the RPC for processing.

The code in rdma_read_xdr was setting this bit on the last two
contexts on this list when the last read-list chunk spanned multiple
pages. This caused the svc_rdma_recvfrom logic to incorrectly build
the RPC and caused the kernel to crash because the second-to-last
context doesn't contain the iovec page list.

Modified the condition that sets this bit so that it correctly detects
the last context for the RPC.

11 years agoRevert "PCI: remove transparent bridge sizing"
Linus Torvalds [Wed, 26 Mar 2008 18:22:40 +0000]
Revert "PCI: remove transparent bridge sizing"

This reverts commit 8fa5913d54f3b1e09948e6a0db34da887e05ff1f, which
caused various interesting problems for people, including wrong resource
allocations.  See for example bugzilla entry "2.6.25-rc2: ohci1394
problem (MMIO broken)" at

http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10080

And Gary Hade says:

 "The same change had also exposed an issue reported by Paul Martin that
  has been causing an Oops while hotplugging ThinkPads to a ThinkPad
  Dock II.  See

http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/2/19/405
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9961

  I have a fix for the ThinkPad docking Oops but if the issue being
  discussed here is caused by the transparent bridge sizing removal
  change I totally agree that it should be reverted."

  The transparent bridge sizing removal change was motivated by
  insufficient PCI memory resource for a transparent bridge window that
  was being created as a result of expansion ROM(s) being included in
  the transparent bridge sizing calculations.

  A later "PCI: Remove default PCI expansion ROM memory allocation"
  change ( re: http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/12/11/361 ) removes the
  expansion ROM(s) from the transparent bridge sizing calculations which
  actually resolves the original issue in a different manner.  So, even
  if the "PCI: remove transparent bridge sizing" is not problematic it
  is no longer needed anyway."

We have been printing these messages at KERN_ERR since 2.6.24,
per http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9535

But KERN_ERR pops up on a console booted with "quiet"

about the message itself:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=436589

So reduce the severity of these messages to
KERN_WARNING, which is not printed by "quiet".

This message will still be seen without "quiet",
but a lot of messages are printed in that mode
and it will be less likely to cause undue alarm.

We could go all the way to KERN_DEBUG, but this
is a real warning after all, so it seems prudent
not to require "debug" to see it.

11 years agoNOHZ: reevaluate idle sleep length after add_timer_on()
Thomas Gleixner [Sat, 22 Mar 2008 08:20:24 +0000]
NOHZ: reevaluate idle sleep length after add_timer_on()

add_timer_on() can add a timer on a CPU which is currently in a long
idle sleep, but the timer wheel is not reevaluated by the nohz code on
that CPU. So a timer can be delayed for quite a long time. This
triggered a false positive in the clocksource watchdog code.

To avoid this we need to wake up the idle CPU and enforce the
reevaluation of the timer wheel for the next timer event.

Add a function, which checks a given CPU for idle state, marks the
idle task with NEED_RESCHED and sends a reschedule IPI to notify the
other CPU of the change in the timer wheel.

Call this function from add_timer_on().

cpuidle: fix 100% C0 statistics regression

commit 9b12e18cdc1553de62d931e73443c806347cd974
'ACPI: cpuidle: Support C1 idle time accounting'
was implicated in a 100% C0 idle regression.
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10076

It pointed out a potential problem where the menu governor
may get confused by the C-state residency time from poll
idle or C1 idle, where this timing info is not accurate.
This inaccuracy is due to interrupts being handled
before we account for C-state exit.

Do not mark TIME_VALID for CO poll state.
Mark C1 time as valid only with the MWAIT (CSTATE_FFH) entry method.

This makes governors use the timing information only when it is correct and
eliminates any wrong policy decisions that may result from invalid timing
information.

This original patch
http://ussg.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/0712.2/1451.html
was intending to add acpi_unlazy_tlb() to acpi_idle_enter_bm(),
which is used for C3 entry.

But it was merged incorrectly as commmit

bde6f5f59c2b2b48a7a849c129d5b48838fe77ee
'x86: voluntary leave_mm before entering ACPI C3'

so the call was instead added to acpi_idle_enter_simple()
(which is C2 entry routine), probably due to identical
context in that function.

Move the call back to acpi_idle_enter_bm().

cxgb3: Fix lockdep problems with sge.reg_lock

Using iWARP with a Chelsio T3 NIC generates the following lockdep warning:

    =================================
    [ INFO: inconsistent lock state ]
    2.6.25-rc6 #50
    ---------------------------------
    inconsistent {softirq-on-W} -> {in-softirq-W} usage.
    swapper/0 [HC0[0]:SC1[1]:HE0:SE0] takes:
     (&adap->sge.reg_lock){-+..}, at: [<ffffffff880e5ee2>] cxgb_offload_ctl+0x3af/0x507 [cxgb3]

The problem is that reg_lock is used with plain spin_lock() in
drivers/net/cxgb3/sge.c but is used with spin_lock_irqsave() in
drivers/net/cxgb3/cxgb3_offload.c.  This is technically a false
positive, since the uses in sge.c are only in the initialization and
cleanup paths and cannot overlap with any use in interrupt context.

The best fix is probably just to use spin_lock_irq() with reg_lock in
sge.c.  Even though it's not strictly required for correctness, it
avoids triggering lockdep and the extra overhead of disabling
interrupts is not important at all in the initialization and cleanup
slow paths.

bonding: fix two compiler warnings

Fix two compiler warnings that are new with recent versions of gcc
(apparently 4.2 and up).  One is fixed by refactoring; this change was
supplied by Stephen Hemminger.  The other was fixed by labelling the
variable as uninitialized_var() after confirming via inspection that it
cannot actually be used uninitialized.

11 years agobonding: Fix locking in 802.3ad mode

bonding: Fix locking in 802.3ad mode

The 802.3ad state machine lock can be acquired in both softirq and
not softirq context, but was not held at _bh to prevent a deadlock (which
could occur if a LACPDU arrived and was processed while the lock was
held).

Corrected this, now hold the state machine lock at _bh to prevent
deadlock.

ACPI: fix a regression of ACPI device driver autoloading

commit 3620f2f2f39e7870cf1a4fb2e34063a142f28716 sets the cid of
ACPI video/dock/bay device and leaves the hid empty.
As a result, "modalias" should export the cid for
devices which don't have a hid.

ACPI Video driver is not autoloaded with
commit 3620f2f2f39e7870cf1a4fb2e34063a142f28716 applied.
"cat /sys/.../device:03(acpi video bus)/modalias" shows nothing.

ACPI Video driver is autoloaded after revert that commit.
"cat /sys/.../LNXVIDEO:0x/modalias" shows "acpi:LNXVIDEO:"

ACPI Video driver is autoloaded with commit
3620f2f2f39e7870cf1a4fb2e34063a142f28716 and this patch applied.
"cat /sys/.../device:03(acpi video bus)/modalias"
shows "acpi:LNXVIDEO:"

Bjorn Helgaas [Tue, 25 Mar 2008 17:21:11 +0000]
ACPI: fix Medion _PRT quirk (use "ISA_", not "ISA")

This fixes the builtin RTL8139 NIC on the Medion MD9580-F laptop.  The
BIOS reports the interrupt routing incorrectly.  I recently added a
quirk to work around this, and this patch fixes a typo in the quirk.

We pad every ACPI pathname component to four characters, so ".ISA." will
never match anything.  We need ".ISA_." instead.

Thank you Johann-Nikolaus Andreae <johann-nikolaus.andreae@nacs.de>
for patiently testing this patch.

    clocksource.c: use init_timer_deferrable for clocksource_watchdog

    clocksource_watchdog can use a deferrable timer - reduces wakeups from
    idle per second.

The watchdog timer needs to run with the specified interval. Otherwise
it will miss the possible wrap of the watchdog clocksource.
