Christoph Hellwig [Mon, 14 Jun 2010 09:17:31 +0000]
xfs: new truncate sequence

Convert XFS to the new truncate sequence.  We still can have errors after
updating the file size in xfs_setattr, but these are real I/O errors and lead
to a transaction abort and filesystem shutdown, so they are not an issue.

Errors from ->write_begin and write_end can now be handled correctly because
we can actually get rid of the delalloc extents while previous the buffer
state was stipped in block_invalidatepage.

There is still no error handling for ->direct_IO, because doing so will need
some major restructuring given that we only have the iolock shared and do not
hold i_mutex at all.  Fortunately leaving the normally allocated blocks behind
there is not a major issue and this will get cleaned up by xfs_free_eofblock
later.

Note: the patch is against Al's vfs.git tree as that contains the nessecary
preparations.  I'd prefer to get it applied there so that we can get some
testing in linux-next.

exofs: New truncate sequence

These changes are crafted based on the similar
conversion done to ext2 by Nick Piggin.

* Remove the deprecated ->truncate vector. Let exofs_setattr
  take care of on-disk size updates.
* Call truncate_pagecache on the unused pages if
  write_begin/end fails.
* Cleanup exofs_delete_inode that did stupid inode
  writes and updates on an inode that will be
  removed.
* And finally get rid of exofs_get_block. We never
  had any blocks it was all for calling nobh_truncate_page.
  nobh_truncate_page is not actually needed in exofs since
  the last page is complete and gone, just like all the other
  pages. There is no partial blocks in exofs.

I've tested with this patch, and there are no apparent
failures, so far.

As a fallout we don't have to call inode_newsize_ok from simple_setsize and
simplify it down to a truncate_setsize which doesn't return an error.  This

almost everywhere.  Get rid of fat_setsize now that it's trivial and mark
ext2_setsize static to make the calling convention obvious.

Keep the inode_newsize_ok in vmtruncate for now as all callers need an
audit for its removal anyway.

Note: setattr code in ecryptfs doesn't call inode_change_ok at all and

cifs: add separate cred_uid field to sesInfo

Right now, there's no clear separation between the uid that owns the
credentials used to do the mount and the overriding owner of the files
on that mount.

Add a separate cred_uid field that is set to the real uid
of the mount user. Unlike the linux_uid, the uid= option does not
override this parameter. The parm is sent to cifs.upcall, which can then
preferentially use the creduid= parm instead of the uid= parm for
finding credentials.

This is not the only way to solve this. We could try to do all of this
in kernel instead by having a module parameter that affects what gets
passed in the uid= field of the upcall. That said, we have a lot more
flexibility to change things in userspace so I think it probably makes
sense to do it this way.

cifs: clean up cifs_find_smb_ses (try #2)

This patch replaces the earlier patch by the same name. The only
difference is that MAX_PASSWORD_SIZE has been increased to attempt to
match the limits that windows enforces.

Do a better job of matching sessions by authtype. Matching by username
for a Kerberos session is incorrect, and anonymous sessions need special
handling.

Also, in the case where we do match by username, we also need to match
by password. That ensures that someone else doesn't "borrow" an existing
session without needing to know the password.

Finally, passwords can be longer than 16 bytes. Bump MAX_PASSWORD_SIZE
to 512 to match the size that the userspace mount helper allows.

Have it call cifs_convert_address and then set the port.

This also allows us to skip passing in the port as a separate parm to
cifs_find_tcp_session.

Also, change cifs_convert_address take a struct sockaddr * rather than

Russell King [Thu, 15 Jul 2010 09:47:14 +0000]
ARM: AMBA: Add pclk support to AMBA bus infrastructure

Some platforms gate the pclk (APB - the bus - clock) to the peripherals
for power saving, along with the functional clock.  When devices are
accessed without pclk enabled, the kernel will oops.

This gives them two options:

1. Leave all clocks on all the time.
2. Attempt to gate pclk along with the functional clock.

(With some hardware, pclk and the functional clock are gated by a single
bit in a register.)

(1) has the disadvantage that it causes increased power usage, which is
bad news for battery operated devices.  (2) can lead to kernel oops if
registers are accessed without the functional clock being enabled.

So, introduce the apb_pclk signal in such a way existing drivers don't
need to be updated.  Essentially, this means we guarantee that:

1. pclk will be enabled whenever the driver is bound to a device -
   from probe() to remove() time.
2. pclk will also be enabled when reading the primecell IDs from the device.

In order to allow drivers to be incrementally updated to achieve greater
power savings, we provide two additional calls to allow drivers to
manage the pclk - amba_pclk_enable()/amba_pclk_disable().

9 years agomm: fix ia64 crash when gcore reads gate area
Hugh Dickins [Fri, 30 Jul 2010 17:58:26 +0000]
mm: fix ia64 crash when gcore reads gate area

Debian's ia64 autobuilders have been seeing kernel freeze or reboot
when running the gdb testsuite (Debian bug 588574): dannf bisected to
2.6.32 62eede62dafb4a6633eae7ffbeb34c60dba5e7b1 "mm: ZERO_PAGE without
PTE_SPECIAL"; and reproduced it with gdb's gcore on a simple target.

I'd missed updating the gate_vma handling in __get_user_pages(): that
happens to use vm_normal_page() (nowadays failing on the zero page),
yet reported success even when it failed to get a page - boom when
access_process_vm() tried to copy that to its intermediate buffer.

Fix this, resisting cleanups: in particular, leave it for now reporting
success when not asked to get any pages - very probably safe to change,
but let's not risk it without testing exposure.

Why did ia64 crash with 16kB pages, but succeed with 64kB pages?
Because setup_gate() pads each 64kB of its gate area with zero pages.

ARM: 6279/1: highmem: fix SMP preemption bug in kmap_high_l1_vipt

smp_processor_id() must not be called from a preemptible context (this
is checked by CONFIG_DEBUG_PREEMPT).  kmap_high_l1_vipt() was doing so.
This lead to a problem where the wrong per_cpu kmap_high_l1_vipt_depth
could be incremented, causing a BUG_ON(*depth <= 0); in
kunmap_high_l1_vipt().

The solution is to move the call to smp_processor_id() after the call
to preempt_disable().

9 years agonfs: include space for the NUL in root path
Dan Carpenter [Tue, 13 Jul 2010 11:34:59 +0000]
nfs: include space for the NUL in root path

In root_nfs_name() it does the following:

        if (strlen(buf) + strlen(cp) > NFS_MAXPATHLEN) {
                printk(KERN_ERR "Root-NFS: Pathname for remote directory too long.\n");
                return -1;
        }
        sprintf(nfs_export_path, buf, cp);

In the original code if (strlen(buf) + strlen(cp) == NFS_MAXPATHLEN)
then the sprintf() would lead to an overflow.  Generally the rest of the
code assumes that the path can have NFS_MAXPATHLEN (1024) characters and
a NUL terminator so the fix is to add space to the nfs_export_path[]
buffer.

David Howells [Thu, 29 Jul 2010 11:45:55 +0000]
CRED: Fix __task_cred()'s lockdep check and banner comment

Fix __task_cred()'s lockdep check by removing the following validation
condition:

lockdep_tasklist_lock_is_held()

as commit_creds() does not take the tasklist_lock, and nor do most of the
functions that call it, so this check is pointless and it can prevent
detection of the RCU lock not being held if the tasklist_lock is held.

Instead, add the following validation condition:

task->exit_state >= 0

to permit the access if the target task is dead and therefore unable to change
its own credentials.

Fix __task_cred()'s comment to:

 (1) discard the bit that says that the caller must prevent the target task
     from being deleted.  That shouldn't need saying.

 (2) Add a comment indicating the result of __task_cred() should not be passed
     directly to get_cred(), but rather than get_task_cred() should be used
     instead.

Also put a note into the documentation to enforce this point there too.

9 years agoCRED: Fix get_task_cred() and task_state() to not resurrect dead credentials
David Howells [Thu, 29 Jul 2010 11:45:49 +0000]
CRED: Fix get_task_cred() and task_state() to not resurrect dead credentials

It's possible for get_task_cred() as it currently stands to 'corrupt' a set of
credentials by incrementing their usage count after their replacement by the
task being accessed.

What happens is that get_task_cred() can race with commit_creds():

TASK_1 TASK_2 RCU_CLEANER
-->get_task_cred(TASK_2)
rcu_read_lock()
__cred = __task_cred(TASK_2)
-->commit_creds()
old_cred = TASK_2->real_cred
TASK_2->real_cred = ...
put_cred(old_cred)
  call_rcu(old_cred)
[__cred->usage == 0]
get_cred(__cred)
[__cred->usage == 1]
rcu_read_unlock()
-->put_cred_rcu()
[__cred->usage == 1]
panic()

However, since a tasks credentials are generally not changed very often, we can
reasonably make use of a loop involving reading the creds pointer and using
atomic_inc_not_zero() to attempt to increment it if it hasn't already hit zero.

If successful, we can safely return the credentials in the knowledge that, even
if the task we're accessing has released them, they haven't gone to the RCU
cleanup code.

We then change task_state() in procfs to use get_task_cred() rather than
calling get_cred() on the result of __task_cred(), as that suffers from the
same problem.

Without this change, a BUG_ON in __put_cred() or in put_cred_rcu() can be
tripped when it is noticed that the usage count is not zero as it ought to be,
