[PATCH] lib/string.c cleanup: restore useful memmove const

A couple of (char *) casts removed in a previous cleanup patch in
lib/string.c:memmove() were actually useful, as they suppressed a couple of
warnings:

assignment discards qualifiers from pointer target type

Fix by declaring the local variable const in the first place, so casts
aren't needed to strip the const qualifier.

[PATCH] RCU torture-testing kernel module

This patch is a rewrite of the one submitted on October 1st, using modules
(http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-kernel&m=112819093522998&w=2).

This rewrite adds a tristate CONFIG_RCU_TORTURE_TEST, which enables an
intense torture test of the RCU infratructure.  This is needed due to the
continued changes to the RCU infrastructure to accommodate dynamic ticks,
CPU hotplug, realtime, and so on.  Most of the code is in a separate file
that is compiled only if the CONFIG variable is set.  Documentation on how
to run the test and interpret the output is also included.

This code has been tested on i386 and ppc64, and an earlier version of the
code has received extensive testing on a number of architectures as part of
the PREEMPT_RT patchset.

[PATCH] fix vgacon blanking

This patch fixes a long-standing vgacon bug: characters with the bright bit
set were left on the screen and not blacked out.  All I did was that I

added the call missing from the linux kernel, but included in all other
ones.  It works for me.

You can test this by writing something with the bright set to the
console, for example:
  echo -e "\e[1;31mhello there\e[0m"
and then wait for the console to blank itself (by default, after 10 mins
of inactivity), maybe making it faster using
  setterm -blank 1
so you only have to wait 1 minute.

13 years ago[PATCH] fix nr_unused accounting, and avoid recursing in iput with I_WILL_FREE set
Andrea Arcangeli [Sun, 30 Oct 2005 23:03:05 +0000]
[PATCH] fix nr_unused accounting, and avoid recursing in iput with I_WILL_FREE set

  list_move(&inode->i_list, &inode_in_use);
  } else {
  list_move(&inode->i_list, &inode_unused);
+ inodes_stat.nr_unused++;
  }
  }
  wake_up_inode(inode);

Are you sure the above diff is correct? It was added somewhere between
2.6.5 and 2.6.8. I think it's wrong.

The only way I can imagine the i_count to be zero in the above path, is
that I_WILL_FREE is set.  And if I_WILL_FREE is set, then we must not
increase nr_unused.  So I believe the above change is buggy and it will
definitely overstate the number of unused inodes and it should be backed
out.

Note that __writeback_single_inode before calling __sync_single_inode, can
drop the spinlock and we can have both the dirty and locked bitflags clear
here:

spin_unlock(&inode_lock);
__wait_on_inode(inode);
iput(inode);
XXXXXXX
spin_lock(&inode_lock);
}
use inode again here

a construct like the above makes zero sense from a reference counting
standpoint.

Either we don't ever use the inode again after the iput, or the
inode_lock should be taken _before_ executing the iput (i.e. a __iput
would be required). Taking the inode_lock after iput means the iget was
useless if we keep using the inode after the iput.

So the only chance the 2.6 was safe to call __writeback_single_inode
with the i_count == 0, is that I_WILL_FREE is set (I_WILL_FREE will
prevent the VM to free the inode in XXXXX).

Potentially calling the above iput with I_WILL_FREE was also wrong
because it would recurse in iput_final (the second mainline bug).

The below (untested) patch fixes the nr_unused accounting, avoids recursing
in iput when I_WILL_FREE is set and makes sure (with the BUG_ON) that we
don't corrupt memory and that all holders that don't set I_WILL_FREE, keeps
a reference on the inode!

More precisely, I was unable to umount the filesystem.  Some investigation
took me to the patch that follows.

At a first glance , the lock/unlock I've taken out seems really not
necessary, as the main code (outside debug) does not lock the super.  The
only additional danger operations that debug code introduces seems to be
related to bitmap, but bitmap operations tends to be all atomic anyway.

I also took the opportunity to fix 2 spelling errors.

This patch deletes pointless code from coredump_wait().

1. It does useless mm->core_waiters inc/dec under mm->mmap_sem,
   but any changes to ->core_waiters have no effect until we drop
   ->mmap_sem.

2. It calls yield() for absolutely unknown reason.

13 years ago[PATCH] Keys: Add LSM hooks for key management [try #3]
David Howells [Sun, 30 Oct 2005 23:02:44 +0000]
[PATCH] Keys: Add LSM hooks for key management [try #3]

The attached patch adds LSM hooks for key management facilities. The notable
changes are:

 (1) The key struct now supports a security pointer for the use of security
     modules. This will permit key labelling and restrictions on which
     programs may access a key.

 (2) Security modules get a chance to note (or abort) the allocation of a key.

 (3) The key permission checking can now be enhanced by the security modules;
     the permissions check consults LSM if all other checks bear out.

 (4) The key permissions checking functions now return an error code rather
     than a boolean value.

 (5) An extra permission has been added to govern the modification of
     attributes (UID, GID, permissions).

Note that there isn't an LSM hook specifically for each keyctl() operation,
but rather the permissions hook allows control of individual operations based
on the permission request bits.

Key management access control through LSM is enabled by automatically if both
CONFIG_KEYS and CONFIG_SECURITY are enabled.

This should be applied on top of the patch ensubjected:

Tejun Heo [Sun, 30 Oct 2005 23:02:40 +0000]
[PATCH] fs: error case fix in __generic_file_aio_read

When __generic_file_aio_read() hits an error during reading, it reports the
error iff nothing has successfully been read yet.  This is condition - when
an error occurs, if nothing has been read/written, report the error code;
otherwise, report the amount of bytes successfully transferred upto that
point.

This corner case can be exposed by performing readv(2) with the following
iov.

 iov[0] = len0 @ ptr0
 iov[1] = len1 @ NULL (or any other invalid pointer)
 iov[2] = len2 @ ptr2

When file size is enough, performing above readv(2) results in

 len0 bytes from file_pos @ ptr0
 len2 bytes from file_pos + len0 @ ptr2

And the return value is len0 + len2.  Test program is attached to this
mail.

This patch makes __generic_file_aio_read()'s error handling identical to
other functions.

13 years ago[PATCH] ptrace/coredump/exit_group deadlock
Andrea Arcangeli [Sun, 30 Oct 2005 23:02:38 +0000]
[PATCH] ptrace/coredump/exit_group deadlock

I could seldom reproduce a deadlock with a task not killable in T state
(TASK_STOPPED, not TASK_TRACED) by attaching a NPTL threaded program to
gdb, by segfaulting the task and triggering a core dump while some other
task is executing exit_group and while one task is in ptrace_attached
TASK_STOPPED state (not TASK_TRACED yet).  This originated from a gdb
bugreport (the fact gdb was segfaulting the task wasn't a kernel bug), but
I just incidentally noticed the gdb bug triggered a real kernel bug as
well.

Most threads hangs in exit_mm because the core_dumping is still going, the
core dumping hangs because the stopped task doesn't exit, the stopped task
can't wakeup because it has SIGNAL_GROUP_EXIT set, hence the deadlock.

To me it seems that the problem is that the force_sig_specific(SIGKILL) in
zap_threads is a noop if the task has PF_PTRACED set (like in this case
because gdb is attached).  The __ptrace_unlink does nothing because the
signal->flags is set to SIGNAL_GROUP_EXIT|SIGNAL_STOP_DEQUEUED (verified).

The above info also shows that the stopped task hit a race and got the stop
signal (presumably by the ptrace_attach, only the attach, state is still
TASK_STOPPED and gdb hangs waiting the core before it can set it to
TASK_TRACED) after one of the thread invoked the core dump (it's the core
dump that sets signal->flags to SIGNAL_GROUP_EXIT).

So beside the fact nobody would wakeup the task in __ptrace_unlink (the
state is _not_ TASK_TRACED), there's a secondary problem in the signal
handling code, where a task should ignore the ptrace-sigstops as long as
SIGNAL_GROUP_EXIT is set (or the wakeup in __ptrace_unlink path wouldn't be
enough).

So I attempted to make this patch that seems to fix the problem.  There
were various ways to fix it, perhaps you prefer a different one, I just
opted to the one that looked safer to me.

I also removed the clearing of the stopped bits from the zap_other_threads
(zap_other_threads was safe unlike zap_threads).  I don't like useless
code, this whole NPTL signal/ptrace thing is already unreadable enough and
full of corner cases without confusing useless code into it to make it even
less readable.  And if this code is really needed, then you may want to
explain why it's not being done in the other paths that sets
SIGNAL_GROUP_EXIT at least.

Even after this patch I still wonder who serializes the read of
p->ptrace in zap_threads.

Patch is called ptrace-core_dump-exit_group-deadlock-1.

This was the trace I've got:

13 years ago[PATCH] cpusets: automatic numa mempolicy rebinding
Paul Jackson [Sun, 30 Oct 2005 23:02:36 +0000]
[PATCH] cpusets: automatic numa mempolicy rebinding

This patch automatically updates a tasks NUMA mempolicy when its cpuset
memory placement changes.  It does so within the context of the task,
without any need to support low level external mempolicy manipulation.

If a system is not using cpusets, or if running on a system with just the
root (all-encompassing) cpuset, then this remap is a no-op.  Only when a
task is moved between cpusets, or a cpusets memory placement is changed
does the following apply.  Otherwise, the main routine below,
rebind_policy() is not even called.

When mixing cpusets, scheduler affinity, and NUMA mempolicies, the
essential role of cpusets is to place jobs (several related tasks) on a set
of CPUs and Memory Nodes, the essential role of sched_setaffinity is to
manage a jobs processor placement within its allowed cpuset, and the
essential role of NUMA mempolicy (mbind, set_mempolicy) is to manage a jobs
memory placement within its allowed cpuset.

However, CPU affinity and NUMA memory placement are managed within the
kernel using absolute system wide numbering, not cpuset relative numbering.

This is ok until a job is migrated to a different cpuset, or what's the
same, a jobs cpuset is moved to different CPUs and Memory Nodes.

Then the CPU affinity and NUMA memory placement of the tasks in the job
need to be updated, to preserve their cpuset-relative position.  This can
be done for CPU affinity using sched_setaffinity() from user code, as one
task can modify anothers CPU affinity.  This cannot be done from an
external task for NUMA memory placement, as that can only be modified in
the context of the task using it.

However, it easy enough to remap a tasks NUMA mempolicy automatically when
a task is migrated, using the existing cpuset mechanism to trigger a
refresh of a tasks memory placement after its cpuset has changed.  All that
is needed is the old and new nodemask, and notice to the task that it needs
to rebind its mempolicy.  The tasks mems_allowed has the old mask, the
tasks cpuset has the new mask, and the existing
cpuset_update_current_mems_allowed() mechanism provides the notice.  The
bitmap/cpumask/nodemask remap operators provide the cpuset relative
calculations.

This patch leaves open a couple of issues:

 1) Updating vma and shmfs/tmpfs/hugetlbfs memory policies:

    These mempolicies may reference nodes outside of those allowed to
    the current task by its cpuset.  Tasks are migrated as part of jobs,
    which reside on what might be several cpusets in a subtree.  When such
    a job is migrated, all NUMA memory policy references to nodes within
    that cpuset subtree should be translated, and references to any nodes
    outside that subtree should be left untouched.  A future patch will
    provide the cpuset mechanism needed to mark such subtrees.  With that
    patch, we will be able to correctly migrate these other memory policies
    across a job migration.

 2) Updating cpuset, affinity and memory policies in user space:

    This is harder.  Any placement state stored in user space using
    system-wide numbering will be invalidated across a migration.  More
    work will be required to provide user code with a migration-safe means
    to manage its cpuset relative placement, while preserving the current
    API's that pass system wide numbers, not cpuset relative numbers across
    the kernel-user boundary.

Paul Jackson [Sun, 30 Oct 2005 23:02:33 +0000]
[PATCH] cpusets: bitmap and mask remap operators

In the forthcoming task migration support, a key calculation will be
mapping cpu and node numbers from the old set to the new set while
preserving cpuset-relative offset.

For example, if a task and its pages on nodes 8-11 are being migrated to
nodes 24-27, then pages on node 9 (the 2nd node in the old set) should be
moved to node 25 (the 2nd node in the new set.)

As with other bitmap operations, the proper way to code this is to provide
the underlying calculation in lib/bitmap.c, and then to provide the usual
cpumask and nodemask wrappers.

This patch provides that.  These operations are termed 'remap' operations.
Both remapping a single bit and a set of bits is supported.

Paul Jackson [Sun, 30 Oct 2005 23:02:32 +0000]
[PATCH] cpusets: confine pdflush to its cpuset

This patch keeps pdflush daemons on the same cpuset as their parent, the
kthread daemon.

Some large NUMA configurations put as much as they can of kernel threads
and other classic Unix load in what's called a bootcpuset, keeping the rest
of the system free for dedicated jobs.

This effort is thwarted by pdflush, which dynamically destroys and
recreates pdflush daemons depending on load.

It's easy enough to force the originally created pdflush deamons into the
bootcpuset, at system boottime.  But the pdflush threads created later were
allowed to run freely across the system, due to the necessary line in their
startup kthread():

        set_cpus_allowed(current, CPU_MASK_ALL);

By simply coding pdflush to start its threads with the cpus_allowed
restrictions of its cpuset (inherited from kthread, its parent) we can
ensure that dynamically created pdflush threads are also kept in the
bootcpuset.

On systems w/o cpusets, or w/o a bootcpuset implementation, the following
will have no affect, leaving pdflush to run on any CPU, as before.

Paul Jackson [Sun, 30 Oct 2005 23:02:31 +0000]
[PATCH] cpusets: simple rename

Add support for renaming cpusets.  Only allow simple rename of cpuset
directories in place.  Don't allow moving cpusets elsewhere in hierarchy or
renaming the special cpuset files in each cpuset directory.

The usefulness of this simple rename became apparent when developing task
migration facilities.  It allows building a second cpuset hierarchy using
new names and containing new CPUs and Memory Nodes, moving tasks from the
old to the new cpusets, removing the old cpusets, and then renaming the new
cpusets to be just like the old names, so that any knowledge that the tasks
had of their cpuset names will still be valid.

Leaf node cpusets can be migrated to other CPUs or Memory Nodes by just
updating their 'cpus' and 'mems' files, but because no cpuset can contain
CPUs or Nodes not in its parent cpuset, one cannot do this in a cpuset
hierarchy without first expanding all the non-leaf cpusets to contain the
union of both the old and new CPUs and Nodes, which would obfuscate the
one-to-one migration of a task from one cpuset to another required to
correctly migrate the physical page frames currently allocated to that
task.

13 years ago[PATCH] cpusets: dual semaphore locking overhaul
Paul Jackson [Sun, 30 Oct 2005 23:02:30 +0000]
[PATCH] cpusets: dual semaphore locking overhaul

Overhaul cpuset locking.  Replace single semaphore with two semaphores.

The suggestion to use two locks was made by Roman Zippel.

Both locks are global.  Code that wants to modify cpusets must first
acquire the exclusive manage_sem, which allows them read-only access to
cpusets, and holds off other would-be modifiers.  Before making actual
changes, the second semaphore, callback_sem must be acquired as well.  Code
that needs only to query cpusets must acquire callback_sem, which is also a
global exclusive lock.

The earlier problems with double tripping are avoided, because it is
allowed for holders of manage_sem to nest the second callback_sem lock, and
only callback_sem is needed by code called from within __alloc_pages(),
where the double tripping had been possible.

This is not quite the same as a normal read/write semaphore, because
obtaining read-only access with intent to change must hold off other such
attempts, while allowing read-only access w/o such intention.  Changing
cpusets involves several related checks and changes, which must be done
while allowing read-only queries (to avoid the double trip), but while
ensuring nothing changes (holding off other would be modifiers.)

This overhaul of cpuset locking also makes careful use of task_lock() to
guard access to the task->cpuset pointer, closing a couple of race
conditions noticed while reading this code (thanks, Roman).  I've never
seen these races fail in any use or test.

See further the comments in the code.

[PATCH] cpusets: remove depth counted locking hack

Remove a rather hackish depth counter on cpuset locking.  The depth counter
was avoiding a possible double trip on the global cpuset_sem semaphore.  It
worked, but now an improved version of cpuset locking is available, to come
in the next patch, using two global semaphores.

This patch reverses "cpuset semaphore depth check deadlock fix"

The kernel still works, even after this patch, except for some rare and
difficult to reproduce race conditions when agressively creating and
destroying cpusets marked with the notify_on_release option, on very large
systems.

Eric W. Biederman [Sun, 30 Oct 2005 23:02:08 +0000]
[PATCH] Don't uselessly export task_struct to userspace in core dumps

task_struct is an internal structure to the kernel with a lot of good
information, that is probably interesting in core dumps.  However there is
no way for user space to know what format that information is in making it
useless.

I grepped the GDB 6.3 source code and NT_TASKSTRUCT while defined is not
used anywhere else.  So I would be surprised if anyone notices it is
missing.

In addition exporting kernel pointers to all the interesting kernel data
structures sounds like the very definition of an information leak.  I
haven't a clue what someone with evil intentions could do with that
information, but in any attack against the kernel it looks like this is the
perfect tool for aiming that attack.

So since NT_TASKSTRUCT is useless as currently defined and is potentially
dangerous, let's just not export it.

(akpm: Daniel Jacobowitz <dan@debian.org> "would be amazed" if anything was
using NT_TASKSTRUCT).

Fix the problem (BUG 4964) with unmapped buffers in transaction's

invalidatepage() from block_write_full_page().

block_write_full_page() must call filesystem's invalidatepage().  Otherwise
following nasty race can happen:

   proc 1                                        proc 2
   ------                                        ------
- write some new data to 'offset'
  => bh gets to the transactions data list
                                              - starts truncate
                                                => i_size set to new size
- mpage_writepages()
  - ext3_ordered_writepage() to 'offset'
    - block_write_full_page()
      - page->index > end_index+1
        - block_invalidatepage()
          - discard_buffer()
            - clear_buffer_mapped()

[PATCH] i386: use -mcpu, not -mtune, for GCCs older than 3.4

I just noted that -mtune is used, which is only supported on recent GCCs; by
reading http://gcc.gnu.org/gcc-3.4/changes.html, you see "-mcpu has been
renamed to -mtune.", so for GCC < 3.4 we're not using any specific tuning in
the appropriate cases.  However -mcpu is deprecated, so use -mtune when
possible.

This was introduced by commit e9d4dce954a60dc23dd1d967766ca2347b780e54 of the
old tree (between 2.6.10-rc3 and 2.6.10) by Linus Torvalds, to remove the use
of -march, since that could trigger gcc using SSE on its own.  But no
attention was used about using -mcpu vs.  -mtune.

And btw, the old 2.6.4 code (for instance) was:
cflags-$(CONFIG_MPENTIUMII)     += $(call check_gcc,-march=pentium2,-march=i686)
cflags-$(CONFIG_MPENTIUMIII)    += $(call check_gcc,-march=pentium3,-march=i686)
cflags-$(CONFIG_MPENTIUMM)      += $(call check_gcc,-march=pentium3,-march=i686)

[PATCH] uml: reuse i386 cpu-specific tuning

Make UML share the underlying cpu-specific tuning done on i386.

Actually, for now many config options aren't used a lot - but that can be done
later.  Also, UML relies on GCC optimization for things like memcpy and such
more than i386, so specifying the correct -march and -mtune should be enough.
Later, we may want to correct some other stuff.

For instance, since FPU context switching, for us, is done (at least
partially, i.e.  between our kernelspace and userspace) by the host, we may
allow usage of FPU operations by GCC.  This doesn't hold for kernelspace vs.
kernelspace, but we don't support preemption.

[PATCH] introduce .valid callback for pm_ops

Add pm_ops.valid callback, so only the available pm states show in
/sys/power/state.  And this also makes an earlier states error report at
enter_state before we do actual suspend/resume.
