12 years agorcutorture: Remove redundant assignment to cur_ops in for loop

rcutorture: Remove redundant assignment to cur_ops in for loop

The for loop in rcutorture_init uses the condition
cur_ops = torture_ops[i], cur_ops
but then makes the same assignment to cur_ops inside the loop.  Remove the
redundant assignment inside the loop, and remove now-unnecessary braces.

Some of these divides can use the reciprocal divides we introduced some
time ago (currently used in slab AFAIK)

We can assume a load will fit in a 32bits number, because with a
SCHED_LOAD_SCALE=128 value, its still a theorical limit of 33554432

When/if we reach this limit one day, probably cpus will have a fast
hardware divide and we can zap the reciprocal divide trick.

Ingo suggested to rename cpu_power to __cpu_power to make clear it should
not be modified without changing its reciprocal value too.

I did not convert the divide in cpu_avg_load_per_task(), because tracking
nr_running changes may be not worth it ?  We could use a static table of 32
reciprocal values but it would add a conditional branch and table lookup.

Fix the process idle load balancing in the presence of dynticks.  cpus for

Potentially these sleeps can be for large durations and during which today,
there is no periodic idle load balancing being done.

This patch nominates an owner among the idle cpus, which does the idle load
balancing on behalf of the other idle cpus.  And once all the cpus are
completely idle, then we can stop this idle load balancing too.  Checks added
in fast path are minimized.  Whenever there are busy cpus in the system, there
will be an owner(idle cpu) doing the system wide idle load balancing.

inode numbering: change libfs sb creation routines to avoid collisions with their root inodes

This patch makes it so that simple_fill_super and get_sb_pseudo assign their

It would have been nice to have made it so that it wasn't possible to make
such a collision, but some callers need to be able to control what inode
number their entries get, so I think this is the best that can be done.

12 years agoinode numbering: make static counters in new_inode and iunique be 32 bits
Jeff Layton [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:32:29 +0000]
inode numbering: make static counters in new_inode and iunique be 32 bits

The problems are:

- on filesystems w/o permanent inode numbers, i_ino values can be larger
  than 32 bits, which can cause problems for some 32 bit userspace programs on
  a 64 bit kernel.  We can't do anything for filesystems that have actual
  >32-bit inode numbers, but on filesystems that generate i_ino values on the
  fly, we should try to have them fit in 32 bits.  We could trivially fix this
  by making the static counters in new_inode and iunique 32 bits, but...

- many filesystems call new_inode and assume that the i_ino values they are
  given are unique.  They are not guaranteed to be so, since the static
  counter can wrap.  This problem is exacerbated by the fix for #1.

- after allocating a new inode, some filesystems call iunique to try to get
  a unique i_ino value, but they don't actually add their inodes to the
  hashtable, and so they're still not guaranteed to be unique if that counter
  wraps.

This patch set takes the simpler approach of simply using iunique and hashing
the inodes afterward.  Christoph H.  previously mentioned that he thought that
this approach may slow down lookups for filesystems that currently hash their
inodes.

The questions are:

1) how much would this slow down lookups for these filesystems?
2) is it enough to justify adding more infrastructure to avoid it?

What might be best is to start with this approach and then only move to using
IDR or some other scheme if these extra inodes in the hashtable prove to be
problematic.

I've done some cursory testing with this patch and the overhead of hashing and
unhashing the inodes with pipefs is pretty low -- just a few seconds of system
time added on to the creation and destruction of 10 million pipes (very
similar to the overhead that the IDR approach would add).

The hard thing to measure is what effect this has on other filesystems. I'm
open to ways to try and gauge this.

Again, I've only converted pipefs as an example. If this approach is
acceptable then I'll start work on patches to convert other filesystems.

With a pretty-much-worst-case microbenchmark provided by Eric Dumazet
<dada1@cosmosbay.com>:

hashing patch (pipebench):
sys     1m15.329s
sys     1m16.249s
sys     1m17.169s

unpatched (pipebench):
sys     1m9.836s
sys     1m12.541s
sys     1m14.153s

Which works out to 1.05642174294555027017.  So ~5-6% slowdown.

This patch:

When a 32-bit program that was not compiled with large file offsets does a
stat and gets a st_ino value back that won't fit in the 32 bit field, glibc
(correctly) generates an EOVERFLOW error.  We can't do anything about fs's
with larger permanent inode numbers, but when we generate them on the fly, we
ought to try and have them fit within a 32 bit field.

This patch takes the first step toward this by making the static counters in
these two functions be 32 bits.

au1550 SPI controller driver

Here is a driver for the Alchemy au1550 PSC (Programmable Serial
Controller) in SPI master mode.

It supports dma transfers using the Alchemy descriptor based dma controller
for 4-8 bits per word SPI transfers.  For 9-24 bits per word transfers, pio
irq based mode is used to avoid setup of dma channels from scratch on each
number of bits per word change.

Tested with au1550; this may also work on other MIPS Alchemy cpus, like
au1200/au1210/au1250.  Used extensively with SD card connected via SPI;
this handles 8.1MHz SPI clock transfers using dma without any problem (the
highest SPI clock freq possible with au1550 running on 324MHz).

The driver supports sharing of SPI bus by multiple devices.  All features
of Alchemy SPI mode are supported (all SPI modes, msb/lsb first, bits per
word in 4-24 range).

As the SPI clock of the controller depends on main input clock that shall
be configured externally, platform data structure for au1550 SPI controller
driver contains mainclk_hz attribute to define the input clock rate.  From
this value, dividers of the controller for SPI clock are set up for
required frequency.

12 years agoInvalid return value of execve() resulting in oopses
Alexey Kuznetsov [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:31:57 +0000]
Invalid return value of execve() resulting in oopses

When elf loader fails to map executable (due to memory shortage or because
binary is malformed), it can return 0.  Normally, this is invisible because
process is killed with SIGKILL and it never returns to user space.

But if exec() is called from kernel thread (hotplug, whatever)
consequences are more interesting and vary depending on architecture.

i386.   Nothing especially interesting, execve() just returns
        with "success"  :-)

x86_64. Fake zero frame is used on way to caller, RSP/RIP are loaded
        with zeros, ergo... double fault.

ia64.   Similar to i386, but r32...r95 are corrupted. Sometimes it
        oopses due to return to zero PC, sometimes it sees NaT in
        rXX and oopses due to NaT consumption.

udf: decrement correct link count in udf_rmdir

It appears that a minor thinko occurred in udf_rmdir and the
(already-cleared) link count on the directory that is being removed was
being decremented instead of the link count on its parent directory.  This
gives rise to lots of kernel messages similar to:

UDF-fs warning (device loop1): udf_rmdir: empty directory has nlink != 2 (8)

when removing directory trees.  No other ill effects have been observed but
I guess it could theoretically result in the link count overflowing on a
very long-lived, much modified directory.

Alistair John Strachan [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:31:15 +0000]
Move LOG_BUF_SHIFT to a more sensible place

Several people have observed that perhaps LOG_BUF_SHIFT should be in a more
obvious place than under DEBUG_KERNEL. Under some circumstances (such as the
PARISC architecture), DEBUG_KERNEL can increase kernel size, which is an
undesirable trade off for something as trivial as increasing the kernel log
buffer size.

Instead, move LOG_BUF_SHIFT into "General Setup", so that people are more
likely to be able to change it such a circumstance that the default buffer
size is insufficient.

tpm: fix sleep-in-spinlock

flush_scheduled_work() can sleep, and we're calling it under spinlock.

AFAICS, moving flush_scheduled_work before spin_lock() should not cause any
problems.

Reason being - The only thing that can race against tpm_release is tpm_open
(tpm_release is called when last reference to the file is closed and only
thing that can happen after that is tpm_open??) and tpm_open acquires
driver_lock and more over it bails out with EBUSY if chip->num_opens is
greater than 0.

I also moved chip->num_pending-- to after deleting timer and setting data
pending as it looks more correct for the paranoid although it probably doesn't
matter as it is guarded by driver_lock.  None the less this change should not
cause problems.

While I was at it I noticed a missing NULL check in tpm_register_hardware
which is fixed with this patch as well.

12 years agoClean up mostly unused IOSPACE macros
David Gibson [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:30:57 +0000]
Clean up mostly unused IOSPACE macros

Most architectures defined three macros, MK_IOSPACE_PFN(), GET_IOSPACE()
and GET_PFN() in pgtable.h.  However, the only callers of any of these
macros are in Sparc specific code, either in arch/sparc, arch/sparc64 or
drivers/sbus.

This patch removes the redundant macros from all architectures except
sparc and sparc64.

12 years agoconsole UTF-8 fixes
Egmont Koblinger [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:30:37 +0000]
console UTF-8 fixes

The UTF-8 part of the vt driver suffers from the following issues which are
addressed in my patch:

1) If there's no glyph found for a particular valid UTF-8 character, we try
   to display U+FFFD. However if this one is not found either, here's what
   the current kernel does:

   - First, if the Unicode value is less than the number of glyphs, use the
     glyph directly from that position of the glyph table. While it may be a
     good idea in the 8-bit world, it has absolutely no sense with Unicode
     in mind. For example, if a Latin-2 font is loaded and an application
     prints U+00FB ("u with circumflex", not present in Latin-2) then as a
     fallback solution the glyph from the 0xFB position of the Latin-2
     fontset (which is an "u with double accent" - a different character) is
     displayed.

   - Second, if this fallback fails too, a simple ASCII question mark is
     printed, which is visually undistinguishable from a real question mark.

   I changed the code to skip the first step (except if in non-UTF-8 mode),
   and changed the second step to print the question mark with inverse color
   attributes, so it is visually clear that it's not a real question mark,
   and resembles more to the common glyph of U+FFFD.

2) The UTF-8 decoder is buggy in many ways:

   - Lone continuation bytes (section 3.1 of Markus Kuhn's UTF-8 stress
     test) are not caught, they are displayed as some "random" (taken
     directly form the font table, see above) glyphs instead the replacement
     character.

   - Incomplete sequences (sections 3.2 and 3.3 of the stress test) emit no
     replacement character, but rather cause the subsequent valid character
     to be displayed more times(!).

   - The decoder is not safe: overlong sequences are not caught currently,
     they are displayed as if these were valid representations. This may
     even have security impacts.

   - The decoder does not handle D800..DFFF and FFFE..FFFF specially, it
     just emits these code points and lets it be looked up in the glyph
     table. Since these are invalid code points, I replace them by U+FFFD
     and hence give no chance for them to be looked up in the glyph table.
     (Assuming no font ships glyphs for these code points, this change is
     not visible to the users since the glyph shown will be the same.)

   With my fixes to the decoder it now behaves exactly as Markus Kuhn's
   stress test recommends.

3) It has no concept of double-width (CJK) characters. It's way beyond the
   scope of my patch to try to display them, but at least I think it's
   important for the cursor to jump two positions when printing such
   characters, since this is what applications (such as text editors)
   expect. Currently the cursor only jumps one position, and hence
   applications suffer from displaying and refreshing problems, and editing
   some English letters that are preceded by some CJK characters in the same
   line is a nightmare. With my patch an additional space is inserted after
   the CJK character has been printed (which usually means a replacement
   symbol of course). (If U+FFFD isn't availble and hence an inverse
   question mark is displayed in the first cell, I keep the inverted state
   for the space in the 2nd column so it's quite easy to see that they are
   tied together.)

4) There is a small built-in table of zero-width spaces that are not to be
   printed but silently skipped. U+200A is included there, but it's not a
   zero-width character, so I remove it from there.

ext3: copy i_flags to inode flags on write

A patch that stores inode flags such as S_IMMUTABLE, S_APPEND, etc.  from
i_flags to EXT3_I(inode)->i_flags when inode is written to disk.  The same
thing is done on GETFLAGS ioctl.

Quota code changes these flags on quota files (to make it harder for
sysadmin to screw himself) and these changes were not correctly propagated
into the filesystem (especially, lsattr did not show them and users were
wondering...).

Propagate flags such as S_APPEND, S_IMMUTABLE, etc.  from i_flags into
ext3-specific i_flags.  Hence, when someone sets these flags via a
different interface than ioctl, they are stored correctly.

12 years agoCPU time limit patch / setrlimit(RLIMIT_CPU, 0) cheat fix
Tom Alsberg [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:30:31 +0000]
CPU time limit patch / setrlimit(RLIMIT_CPU, 0) cheat fix

As discovered here today, the change in Kernel 2.6.17 intended to inhibit
users from setting RLIMIT_CPU to 0 (as that is equivalent to unlimited) by
"cheating" and setting it to 1 in such a case, does not make a difference,
as the check is done in the wrong place (too late), and only applies to the
profiling code.

On all systems I checked running kernels above 2.6.17, no matter what the
hard and soft CPU time limits were before, a user could escape them by
issuing in the shell (sh/bash/zsh) "ulimit -t 0", and then the user's
process was not ever killed.

Attached is a trivial patch to fix that.  Simply moving the check to a
slightly earlier location (specifically, before the line that actually
assigns the limit - *old_rlim = new_rlim), does the trick.

Do note that at least the zsh (but not ash, dash, or bash) shell has the
problem of "caching" the limits set by the ulimit command, so when running
zsh the fix will not immediately be evident - after entering "ulimit -t 0",
"ulimit -a" will show "-t: cpu time (seconds) 0", even though the actual
limit as returned by getrlimit(...) will be 1.  It can be verified by
opening a subshell (which will not have the values of the parent shell in
cache) and checking in it, or just by running a CPU intensive command like
"echo '65536^1048576' | bc" and verifying that it dumps core after one
second.

Regardless of whether that is a misfeature in the shell, perhaps it would
be better to return -EINVAL from setrlimit in such a case instead of
cheating and setting to 1, as that does not really reflect the actual state
of the process anymore.  I do not however know what the ground for that
decision was in the original 2.6.17 change, and whether there would be any
"backward" compatibility issues, so I preferred not to touch that right
now.

There are many places in the kernel where the construction like

             list_entry((head)->next, type, member)

Here is the macro itself and the examples of its usage in the generic code.
 If it will turn out to be useful, I can prepare the set of patches to

Thomas Gleixner [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:30:03 +0000]
highres/dyntick: prevent xtime lock contention

While the !highres/!dyntick code assigns the duty of the do_timer() call to
one specific CPU, this was dropped in the highres/dyntick part during
development.

Steven Rostedt discovered the xtime lock contention on highres/dyntick due
to several CPUs trying to update jiffies.

Add the single CPU assignement back.  In the dyntick case this needs to be
handled carefully, as the CPU which has the do_timer() duty must drop the
assignement and let it be grabbed by another CPU, which is active.
Otherwise the do_timer() calls would not happen during the long sleep.

12 years agofix hotplug for legacy platform drivers
David Brownell [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:29:39 +0000]
fix hotplug for legacy platform drivers

We've had various reports of some legacy "probe the hardware" style
platform drivers having nasty problems with hotplug support.

The core issue is that those legacy drivers don't fully conform to the
driver model.  They assume a role that should be the responsibility of
infrastructure code: creating device nodes.

The "modprobe" step in hotplugging relies on drivers to have split those
roles into different modules.  The lack of this split causes the problems.
When a driver creates nodes for devices that don't exist (sending a hotplug
event), then exits (aborting one modprobe) before the "modprobe $MODALIAS"
step completes (by failing, since it's in the middle of a modprobe), the
result can be an endless loop of modprobe invocations ...  badness.

This fix uses the newish per-device flag controlling issuance of "add"
events.  (A previous version of this patch used a per-device "driver can
hotplug" flag, which only scrubbed $MODALIAS from the environment rather
than suppressing the entire hotplug event.) It also shrinks that flag to
one bit, saving a word in "struct device".

So the net of this patch is removing some nasty failures with legacy
drivers, while retaining hotplug capability for the majority of platform
drivers.
