10 years agoeCryptfs: Filename Encryption: Tag 70 packets
Michael Halcrow [Tue, 6 Jan 2009 22:41:57 +0000]
eCryptfs: Filename Encryption: Tag 70 packets

This patchset implements filename encryption via a passphrase-derived
mount-wide Filename Encryption Key (FNEK) specified as a mount parameter.
Each encrypted filename has a fixed prefix indicating that eCryptfs should
try to decrypt the filename.  When eCryptfs encounters this prefix, it
decodes the filename into a tag 70 packet and then decrypts the packet
contents using the FNEK, setting the filename to the decrypted filename.
Both unencrypted and encrypted filenames can reside in the same lower
filesystem.

Because filename encryption expands the length of the filename during the
encoding stage, eCryptfs will not properly handle filenames that are
already near the maximum filename length.

In the present implementation, eCryptfs must be able to produce a match
against the lower encrypted and encoded filename representation when given
a plaintext filename.  Therefore, two files having the same plaintext name
will encrypt and encode into the same lower filename if they are both
encrypted using the same FNEK.  This can be changed by finding a way to
replace the prepended bytes in the blocked-aligned filename with random
characters; they are hashes of the FNEK right now, so that it is possible
to deterministically map from a plaintext filename to an encrypted and
encoded filename in the lower filesystem.  An implementation using random
characters will have to decode and decrypt every single directory entry in
any given directory any time an event occurs wherein the VFS needs to
determine whether a particular file exists in the lower directory and the
decrypted and decoded filenames have not yet been extracted for that
directory.

Thanks to Tyler Hicks and David Kleikamp for assistance in the development
of this patchset.

This patch:

A tag 70 packet contains a filename encrypted with a Filename Encryption
Key (FNEK).  This patch implements functions for writing and parsing tag
70 packets.  This patch also adds definitions and extends structures to
support filename encryption.

10 years agomodule: add within_module_core() and within_module_init()
Masami Hiramatsu [Tue, 6 Jan 2009 22:41:49 +0000]
module: add within_module_core() and within_module_init()

This series of patches allows kprobes to probe module's __init and __exit
functions.  This means, you can probe driver initialization and
terminating.

Currently, kprobes can't probe __init function because these functions are
freed after module initialization.  And it also can't probe module __exit
functions because kprobe increments reference count of target module and
user can't unload it.  this means __exit functions never be called unless
removing probes from the module.

To solve both cases, this series of patches introduces GONE flag and sets
it when the target code is freed(for this purpose, kprobes hooks
MODULE_STATE_* events).  This also removes refcount incrementing for
allowing user to unload target module.  Users can check which probes are
GONE by debugfs interface.  For taking timing of freeing module's .init
text, these also include a patch which adds module's notifier of
MODULE_STATE_LIVE event.

This patch:

Add within_module_core() and within_module_init() for checking whether an
address is in the module .init.text section or .text section, and replace
within() local inline functions in kernel/module.c with them.

kprobes uses these functions to check where the kprobe is inserted.

10 years agokprobes: bugfix: try_module_get even if calling_mod is NULL
Masami Hiramatsu [Tue, 6 Jan 2009 22:41:46 +0000]
kprobes: bugfix: try_module_get even if calling_mod is NULL

When someone called register_*probe() from kernel-core code(not from
module) and that probes a kernel module, users can remove the probed
module because kprobe doesn't increment reference counter of the module.
(on the other hand, if the kernel-module calls register_*probe, kprobe
increments refcount of the probed module.)

Currently, we have no register_*probe() calling from kernel-core(except
smoke-test, but the smoke-test doesn't probe module), so there is no real
bugs.  But the logic is wrong(or not fair) and it can causes a problem
when someone might want to probe module from kernel.

After this patch is applied, even if someone put register_*probe() call in
the kernel-core code, it increments the reference counter of the probed
module, and it prevents user to remove the module until stopping probing
it.

10 years agospi_gpio driver
David Brownell [Tue, 6 Jan 2009 22:41:41 +0000]
spi_gpio driver

Generalize the old at91rm9200 "bootstrap" bitbanging SPI master driver as
"spi_gpio", so it works with arbitrary GPIOs and can be configured through
platform_data.  Such SPI masters support:

 - any number of bus instances (bus_num is the platform_device.id)
 - any number of chipselects (one GPIO per spi_device)
 - all four SPI_MODE values, and SPI_CS_HIGH
 - i/o word sizes from 1 to 32 bits;
 - devices configured as with any other spi_master controller

When configured using platform_data, this provides relatively low clock
rates.  On platforms that support inlined GPIO calls, significantly
improved transfer speeds are also possible with a semi-custom driver.
(It's still painful when accessing flash memory, but less so.)

Sanity checked by using this version to replace both native controllers on
a board with six different SPI slaves, relying on three different
SPI_MODE_* values and both SPI_CS_HIGH settings for correct operation.

adt7470: make automatic fan control really work

It turns out that the adt7470's automatic fan control algorithm only works
when the temperature sensors get updated.  This in turn happens only when
someone tells the chip to read its temperature sensors.  Regrettably, this
means that we have to drive the chip periodically.

adt7470: observe the number of temperature sensors to shorten update time

The adt7470 driver currently assumes that 1s is the proper time to wait to
read all temperature sensors.  However, the correct time is 200ms *
number_of_sensors.  This patch sets the default time to provide for 10
sensors and then lowers it based on the number of sensor inputs that have
nozero values.

Darrick J. Wong [Tue, 6 Jan 2009 22:41:32 +0000]
adt7470: fix pwm at a certain level during temperature sensor scan

In the small window that it takes to read the temperature sensors, the pwm
outputs momentarily drop to 0.  This causes a noticeable hiccup in fan
speed, which is slightly annoying.  The solution is to manually program
the pwm output with whatever the automatic value is and then shift the
fans to manual control while reading temperatures.  Once that is done, put
the fans back to whatever mode of control was there before.

10 years agoremove linux/hardirq.h from asm-generic/local.h
Russell King [Tue, 6 Jan 2009 22:41:07 +0000]
remove linux/hardirq.h from asm-generic/local.h

While looking at reducing the amount of architecture namespace pollution
in the generic kernel, I found that asm/irq.h is included in the vast
majority of compilations on ARM (around 650 files.)

Since asm/irq.h includes a sub-architecture include file on ARM, this
causes a negative impact on the ccache's ability to re-use the build
results from other sub-architectures, so we have a desire to reduce the
dependencies on asm/irq.h.

It turns out that a major cause of this is the needless include of
linux/hardirq.h into asm-generic/local.h.  The patch below removes this
include, resulting in some 250 to 300 files (around half) of the kernel
then omitting asm/irq.h.

My test builds still succeed, provided two ARM files are fixed
(arch/arm/kernel/traps.c and arch/arm/mm/fault.c) - so there may be
negative impacts for this on other architectures.

Note that x86 does not include asm/irq.h nor linux/hardirq.h in its
asm/local.h, so this patch can be viewed as bringing the generic version
into line with the x86 version.

10 years agopercpu_counter: FBC_BATCH should be a variable
Eric Dumazet [Tue, 6 Jan 2009 22:41:04 +0000]
percpu_counter: FBC_BATCH should be a variable

For NR_CPUS >= 16 values, FBC_BATCH is 2*NR_CPUS

Considering more and more distros are using high NR_CPUS values, it makes
sense to use a more sensible value for FBC_BATCH, and get rid of NR_CPUS.

A sensible value is 2*num_online_cpus(), with a minimum value of 32 (This
minimum value helps branch prediction in __percpu_counter_add())

We already have a hotcpu notifier, so we can adjust FBC_BATCH dynamically.

We rename FBC_BATCH to percpu_counter_batch since its not a constant
anymore.

10 years agoAllow times and time system calls to return small negative values
Paul Mackerras [Tue, 6 Jan 2009 22:41:02 +0000]
Allow times and time system calls to return small negative values

At the moment, the times() system call will appear to fail for a period
shortly after boot, while the value it want to return is between -4095 and
-1.  The same thing will also happen for the time() system call on 32-bit
platforms some time in 2106 or so.

On some platforms, such as x86, this is unavoidable because of the system
call ABI, but other platforms such as powerpc have a separate error
indication from the return value, so system calls can in fact return small
negative values without indicating an error.  On those platforms,
force_successful_syscall_return() provides a way to indicate that the
system call return value should not be treated as an error even if it is
in the range which would normally be taken as a negative error number.

This adds a force_successful_syscall_return() call to the time() and
times() system calls plus their 32-bit compat versions, so that they don't
erroneously indicate an error on those platforms whose system call ABI has
a separate error indication.  This will not affect anything on other
platforms.

Joakim Tjernlund added the fix for time() and the compat versions of
time() and times(), after I did the fix for times().

10 years agopoll: allow f_op->poll to sleep
Tejun Heo [Tue, 6 Jan 2009 22:40:59 +0000]
poll: allow f_op->poll to sleep

f_op->poll is the only vfs operation which is not allowed to sleep.  It's
because poll and select implementation used task state to synchronize
against wake ups, which doesn't have to be the case anymore as wait/wake
interface can now use custom wake up functions.  The non-sleep restriction
can be a bit tricky because ->poll is not called from an atomic context
and the result of accidentally sleeping in ->poll only shows up as
temporary busy looping when the timing is right or rather wrong.

This patch converts poll/select to use custom wake up function and use
separate triggered variable to synchronize against wake up events.  The
only added overhead is an extra function call during wake up and
negligible.

This patch removes the one non-sleep exception from vfs locking rules and
is beneficial to userland filesystem implementations like FUSE, 9p or
peculiar fs like spufs as it's very difficult for those to implement
non-sleeping poll method.

While at it, make the following cosmetic changes to make poll.h and
select.c checkpatch friendly.

* s/type * symbol/type *symbol/    : three places in poll.h
* remove blank line before EXPORT_SYMBOL() : two places in select.c

scripts: script from kerneloops.org to pretty print oops dumps

We're struggling all the time to figure out where the code came from that
oopsed..  The script below (a adaption from a script used by
kerneloops.org) can help developers quite a bit, at least for non-module
cases.

It works and looks like this:

[/home/arjan/linux]$ dmesg | perl scripts/markup_oops.pl vmlinux
 {
  struct agp_memory *memory;

  memory = agp_allocate_memory(agp_bridge, pg_count, type);
 c055c10f: 89 c2                 mov    %eax,%edx
  if (memory == NULL)
 c055c111: 74 19                 je     c055c12c <agp_allocate_memory_wrap+0x30>
 /* This function must only be called when current_controller != NULL */
 static void agp_insert_into_pool(struct agp_memory * temp)
 {
  struct agp_memory *prev;

  prev = agp_fe.current_controller->pool;
 c055c113: a1 ec dc 8f c0        mov    0xc08fdcec,%eax
*c055c118: 8b 40 10              mov    0x10(%eax),%eax     <----- faulting instruction

  if (prev != NULL) {
 c055c11b: 85 c0                 test   %eax,%eax
 c055c11d: 74 05                 je     c055c124 <agp_allocate_memory_wrap+0x28>
  prev->prev = temp;
 c055c11f: 89 50 04              mov    %edx,0x4(%eax)
  temp->next = prev;
 c055c122: 89 02                 mov    %eax,(%edx)
  }
  agp_fe.current_controller->pool = temp;
 c055c124: a1 ec dc 8f c0        mov    0xc08fdcec,%eax
 c055c129: 89 50 10              mov    %edx,0x10(%eax)
  if (memory == NULL)
  return NULL;

  agp_insert_into_pool(memory);

so in this case, we faulted while dereferencing agp_fe.current_controller
pointer, and we get to see exactly which function and line it affects...
Personally I find this very useful, and I can see value for having this
script in the kernel for more-than-just-me to use.

Caveats:
* It only works for oopses not-in-modules
* It only works nicely for kernels compiled with CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO
* It's not very fast.
* It only works on x86

10 years agodo_mounts: add device info to mount message
Marton Balint [Tue, 6 Jan 2009 22:40:43 +0000]
do_mounts: add device info to mount message

In the past, I used the root=...  command line parameter to specify the
root filesystem to the kernel.  Now it seems that specifying it is not
necessary.  The kernel detects the root filesystem even if the kernel
command line is empty.  My root fs is on a raid1 device by the way, and I
am not using initrd for the boot process.

If the kernel detects the root filesystem somehow, I think it should print
out the result of this detection, otherwise I will not know which device
has the root filesystem.  Or is there an easy way to get this information
on a running system?  I had a quick look at the /proc and /sys
filesystems, but haven't found anything useful there.

oops handling: ensure that any oops is flushed to the mtdoops console

This used to work unpatched with older kernels, during the development

10 years agoCheck fops_get() return value
Laurent Pinchart [Tue, 6 Jan 2009 22:40:40 +0000]
Check fops_get() return value

Several subsystem open handlers dereference the fops_get() return value
without checking it for nullness.  This opens a race condition between the
open handler and module unloading.

A module can be marked as being unloaded (MODULE_STATE_GOING) before its
exit function is called and gets the chance to unregister the driver.
During that window open handlers can still be called, and fops_get() will
fail in try_module_get() and return a NULL pointer.

This change checks the fops_get() return value and returns -ENODEV if NULL.

10 years agomm: stop kswapd's infinite loop at high order allocation

mm: stop kswapd's infinite loop at high order allocation

Wassim Dagash reported following kswapd infinite loop problem.

  kswapd runs in some infinite loop trying to swap until order 10 of zone
  highmem is OK.... kswapd will continue to try to balance order 10 of zone
  highmem forever (or until someone release a very large chunk of highmem).

For non order-0 allocations, the system may never be balanced due to
fragmentation but kswapd should not infinitely loop as a result.

Instead, recheck all watermarks at order-0 as they are the most important.
If watermarks are ok, kswapd will go back to sleep.

10 years agomm: introduce get_mm_hiwater_xxx(), fix taskstats->hiwater_xxx accounting
Oleg Nesterov [Tue, 6 Jan 2009 22:40:29 +0000]
mm: introduce get_mm_hiwater_xxx(), fix taskstats->hiwater_xxx accounting

xacct_add_tsk() relies on do_exit()->update_hiwater_xxx() and uses
mm->hiwater_xxx directly, this leads to 2 problems:

- taskstats_user_cmd() can call fill_pid()->xacct_add_tsk() at any
  moment before the task exits, so we should check the current values of
  rss/vm anyway.

- do_exit()->update_hiwater_xxx() calls are racy.  An exiting thread can
  be preempted right before mm->hiwater_xxx = new_val, and another thread
  can use A_LOT of memory and exit in between.  When the first thread
  resumes it can be the last thread in the thread group, in that case we
  report the wrong hiwater_xxx values which do not take A_LOT into
  account.

Introduce get_mm_hiwater_rss() and get_mm_hiwater_vm() helpers and change
xacct_add_tsk() to use them.  The first helper will also be used by
rusage->ru_maxrss accounting.

Kill do_exit()->update_hiwater_xxx() calls.  Unless we are going to
decrease rss/vm there is no point to update mm->hiwater_xxx, and nobody
can look at this mm_struct when exit_mmap() actually unmaps the memory.

10 years agomm: pagecache gfp flags fix
Nick Piggin [Tue, 6 Jan 2009 22:40:28 +0000]
mm: pagecache gfp flags fix

Frustratingly, gfp_t is really divided into two classes of flags.  One are
the context dependent ones (can we sleep?  can we enter filesystem?  block
subsystem?  should we use some extra reserves, etc.).  The other ones are
the type of memory required and depend on how the algorithm is implemented
rather than the point at which the memory is allocated (highmem?  dma
memory?  etc).

Some of the functions which allocate a page and add it to page cache take
a gfp_t, but sometimes those functions or their callers aren't really
doing the right thing: when allocating pagecache page, the memory type
should be mapping_gfp_mask(mapping).  When allocating radix tree nodes,
the memory type should be kernel mapped (not highmem) memory.  The gfp_t
argument should only really be needed for context dependent options.

This patch doesn't really solve that tangle in a nice way, but it does
attempt to fix a couple of bugs.

- find_or_create_page changes its radix-tree allocation to only include
  the main context dependent flags in order so the pagecache page may be
  allocated from arbitrary types of memory without affecting the
  radix-tree.  In practice, slab allocations don't come from highmem
  anyway, and radix-tree only uses slab allocations.  So there isn't a
  practical change (unless some fs uses GFP_DMA for pages).

- grab_cache_page_nowait() is changed to allocate radix-tree nodes with
  GFP_NOFS, because it is not supposed to reenter the filesystem.  This
  bug could cause lock recursion if a filesystem is not expecting the
  function to reenter the fs (as-per documentation).

Filesystems should be careful about exactly what semantics they want and
what they get when fiddling with gfp_t masks to allocate pagecache.  One
should be as liberal as possible with the type of memory that can be used,
and same for the the context specific flags.

10 years agofs: remove WB_SYNC_HOLD
Nick Piggin [Tue, 6 Jan 2009 22:40:25 +0000]
fs: remove WB_SYNC_HOLD

Remove WB_SYNC_HOLD.  The primary motiviation is the design of my
anti-starvation code for fsync.  It requires taking an inode lock over the
sync operation, so we could run into lock ordering problems with multiple
inodes.  It is possible to take a single global lock to solve the ordering
problem, but then that would prevent a future nice implementation of "sync
multiple inodes" based on lock order via inode address.

Seems like a backward step to remove this, but actually it is busted
anyway: we can't use the inode lists for data integrity wait: an inode can
be taken off the dirty lists but still be under writeback.  In order to
satisfy data integrity semantics, we should wait for it to finish
writeback, but if we only search the dirty lists, we'll miss it.

It would be possible to have a "writeback" list, for sys_sync, I suppose.
But why complicate things by prematurely optimise?  For unmounting, we
could avoid the "livelock avoidance" code, which would be easier, but
again premature IMO.

Fixing the existing data integrity problem will come next.
