Rafael J. Wysocki [Sun, 12 Apr 2009 18:06:56 +0000]
PM/Hibernate: Wait for SCSI devices scan to complete during resume

There is a race between resume from hibernation and the asynchronous
scanning of SCSI devices and to prevent it from happening we need to
call scsi_complete_async_scans() during resume from hibernation.

In addition, if the resume from hibernation is userland-driven, it's
better to wait for all device probes in the kernel to complete before
attempting to open the resume device.

Serge E. Hallyn [Mon, 13 Apr 2009 14:56:14 +0000]
add some long-missing capabilities to fs_mask

When POSIX capabilities were introduced during the 2.1 Linux
cycle, the fs mask, which represents the capabilities which having
fsuid==0 is supposed to grant, did not include CAP_MKNOD and
CAP_LINUX_IMMUTABLE.  However, before capabilities the privilege
to call these did in fact depend upon fsuid==0.

This patch introduces those capabilities into the fsmask,
restoring the old behavior.

See the thread starting at http://lkml.org/lkml/2009/3/11/157 for
reference.

Note that if this fix is deemed valid, then earlier kernel versions (2.4
and 2.2) ought to be fixed too.

Changelog:
[Mar 23] Actually delete old CAP_FS_SET definition...

lockdep: continue lock debugging despite some taints

Impact: broaden lockdep checks

Lockdep is disabled after any kernel taints. This might be convenient
to ignore bad locking issues which sources come from outside the kernel
tree. Nevertheless, it might be a frustrating experience for the
staging developers or those who experience a warning but are focused
on another things that require lockdep.

The v2 of this patch simply don't disable anymore lockdep in case
of TAINT_CRAP and TAINT_WARN events.

11 years agolockdep: warn about lockdep disabling after kernel taint
Frederic Weisbecker [Sat, 11 Apr 2009 01:17:17 +0000]
lockdep: warn about lockdep disabling after kernel taint

Impact: provide useful missing info for developers

Kernel taint can occur in several situations such as warnings,
load of prorietary or staging modules, bad page, etc...

But when such taint happens, a developer might still be working on
the kernel, expecting that lockdep is still enabled. But a taint
disables lockdep without ever warning about it.
Such a kernel behaviour doesn't really help for kernel development.

This patch adds this missing warning.

Since the taint is done most of the time after the main message that
explain the real source issue, it seems safe to warn about it inside
add_taint() so that it appears at last, without hurting the main
information.

v2: Use a generic helper to disable lockdep instead of an
    open coded xchg().

x86: fix wrong section of pat_disable & make it static

pat_disable cannot be __cpuinit anymore because it's called from pat_init
and the callchain looks like this:
pat_disable [cpuinit] <- pat_init <- generic_set_all <-
 ipi_handler <- set_mtrr <- (other non init/cpuinit functions)

WARNING: arch/x86/mm/built-in.o(.text+0x449e): Section mismatch in reference
from the function pat_init() to the function .cpuinit.text:pat_disable()
The function pat_init() references
the function __cpuinit pat_disable().
This is often because pat_init lacks a __cpuinit
annotation or the annotation of pat_disable is wrong.

Non CONFIG_X86_PAT version of pat_disable is static inline, so this version
can be static too (and there are no callers outside of this file).

 # echo 'parent_pid == 0x10' > events/sched/sched_process_fork/filter
 # cat sched/sched_process_fork/filter
 parent_pid == 0

After patch:

 # cat sched/sched_process_fork/filter
 parent_pid == 16

Also check the input more strictly.

11 years agoasync: Fix module loading async-work regression
Linus Torvalds [Fri, 10 Apr 2009 19:17:41 +0000]
async: Fix module loading async-work regression

Several drivers use asynchronous work to do device discovery, and we
synchronize with them in the compiled-in case before we actually try to
mount root filesystems etc.

However, when compiled as modules, that synchronization is missing - the
module loading completes, but the driver hasn't actually finished
probing for devices, and that means that any user mode that expects to
use the devices after the 'insmod' is now potentially broken.

We already saw one case of a similar issue in the ACPI battery code,
where the kernel itself expected the module to be all done, and unmapped
the init memory - but the async device discovery was still running.
That got hacked around by just removing the "__init" (see commit
5d38258ec026921a7b266f4047ebeaa75db358e5 "ACPI battery: fix async boot
oops"), but the real fix is to just make the module loading wait for all
async work to be completed.

It will slow down module loading, but since common devices should be
built in anyway, and since the bug is really annoying and hard to handle
from user space (and caused several S3 resume regressions), the simple
fix to wait is the right one.

This fixes at least

http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=13063

but probably a few other bugzilla entries too (12936, for example), and
is confirmed to fix Rafael's storage driver breakage after resume bug
report (no bugzilla entry).

We should also be able to now revert that ACPI battery fix.

intel-iommu: Avoid panic() for DRHD at address zero.

If the BIOS does something obviously stupid, like claiming that the
registers for the IOMMU are at physical address zero, then print a nasty
message and abort, rather than trying to set up the IOMMU and then later
panicking.

It's becoming more and more obvious that trusting this stuff to the BIOS
was a mistake.

Weidong Han [Fri, 10 Apr 2009 09:17:17 +0000]
x86, intr-remap: fix eoi for interrupt remapping without x2apic

To simplify level irq migration in the presence of interrupt-remapping,
Suresh used a virtual vector (io-apic pin number) to eliminate io-apic
RTE modification. Level triggered interrupt will appear as an edge to
the local apic cpu but still as level to the IO-APIC. So in addition to
do the local apic EOI, it still needs to do IO-APIC directed EOI to clear
the remote IRR bit in the IO-APIC RTE. Pls refer to Suresh's patch for
more details (commit 0280f7c416c652a2fd95d166f52b199ae61122c0).

Now interrupt remapping is decoupled from x2apic, it also needs to do the
directed EOI for apic. Otherwise, apic interrupts won't work correctly.

I wanted to splice_read 4096 bytes, but it returns 8192 or larger.

It is because the return value of tracing_buffers_splice_read()
does not include "zero out any left over data" bytes.

But tracing_buffers_read() includes these bytes, we make them
consistent.

11 years agotracing: update file->f_pos when splice(2) it

tracing: update file->f_pos when splice(2) it

Impact: Cleanup

These two lines:

if (unlikely(*ppos))
return -ESPIPE;

in tracing_buffers_splice_read() are not needed, VFS layer
has disabled seek(2).

We remove these two lines, and then we can update file->f_pos.

And tracing_buffers_read() updates file->f_pos, this fix
make tracing_buffers_splice_read() updates file->f_pos too.

11 years agokeys: Handle there being no fallback destination keyring for request_key()
David Howells [Thu, 9 Apr 2009 16:14:05 +0000]
keys: Handle there being no fallback destination keyring for request_key()

When request_key() is called, without there being any standard process
keyrings on which to fall back if a destination keyring is not specified, an
oops is liable to occur when construct_alloc_key() calls down_write() on
dest_keyring's semaphore.

Due to function inlining this may be seen as an oops in down_write() as called
from request_key_and_link().

This situation crops up during boot, where request_key() is called from within
the kernel (such as in CIFS mounts) where nobody is actually logged in, and so
PAM has not had a chance to create a session keyring and user keyrings to act
as the fallback.

To fix this, make construct_alloc_key() not attempt to cache a key if there is
no fallback key if no destination keyring is given specifically.

11 years agomutex: have non-spinning mutexes on s390 by default
Heiko Carstens [Thu, 9 Apr 2009 16:48:34 +0000]
mutex: have non-spinning mutexes on s390 by default

Impact: performance regression fix for s390

The adaptive spinning mutexes will not always do what one would expect on
virtualized architectures like s390. Especially the cpu_relax() loop in
mutex_spin_on_owner might hurt if the mutex holding cpu has been scheduled
away by the hypervisor.

We would end up in a cpu_relax() loop when there is no chance that the
state of the mutex changes until the target cpu has been scheduled again by
the hypervisor.

For that reason we should change the default behaviour to no-spin on s390.

We do have an instruction which allows to yield the current cpu in favour of
a different target cpu. Also we have an instruction which allows us to figure
out if the target cpu is physically backed.

However we need to do some performance tests until we can come up with
a solution that will do the right thing on s390.

11 years agosched: do not count frozen tasks toward load
Nathan Lynch [Thu, 9 Apr 2009 00:45:12 +0000]
sched: do not count frozen tasks toward load

Freezing tasks via the cgroup freezer causes the load average to climb
because the freezer's current implementation puts frozen tasks in
uninterruptible sleep (D state).

Some applications which perform job-scheduling functions consult the
load average when making decisions.  If a cgroup is frozen, the load
average does not provide a useful measure of the system's utilization
to such applications.  This is especially inconvenient if the job
scheduler employs the cgroup freezer as a mechanism for preempting low
priority jobs.  Contrast this with using SIGSTOP for the same purpose:
the stopped tasks do not count toward system load.

Change task_contributes_to_load() to return false if the task is
frozen.  This results in /proc/loadavg behavior that better meets
users' expectations.

In file included from arch/ia64/ia32/sys_ia32.c:55:
arch/ia64/ia32/ia32priv.h:290:1: warning: "elf_check_arch" redefined
In file included from include/linux/elf.h:7,
                 from include/linux/module.h:14,
                 from include/linux/ftrace.h:8,
                 from include/linux/syscalls.h:68,
                 from arch/ia64/ia32/sys_ia32.c:18:
arch/ia64/include/asm/elf.h:19:1: warning: this is the location of the previous definition
[...]

sys_ia32.c includes linux/syscalls.h which in turn includes linux/ftrace.h
to import the syscalls tracing prototypes.

But including ftrace.h can pull too much things for a low level file,
especially on ia64 where the ia32 private headers conflict with higher
level headers.

Now we isolate the syscall tracing headers in their own lightweight file.

11 years agowork_on_cpu(): rewrite it to create a kernel thread on demand
Andrew Morton [Thu, 9 Apr 2009 15:50:37 +0000]
work_on_cpu(): rewrite it to create a kernel thread on demand

Impact: circular locking bugfix

The various implemetnations and proposed implemetnations of work_on_cpu()
are vulnerable to various deadlocks because they all used queues of some
form.

Unrelated pieces of kernel code thus gained dependencies wherein if one
work_on_cpu() caller holds a lock which some other work_on_cpu() callback
also takes, the kernel could rarely deadlock.

Fix this by creating a short-lived kernel thread for each work_on_cpu()
invokation.

This is not terribly fast, but the only current caller of work_on_cpu() is
pci_call_probe().

It would be nice to find some other way of doing the node-local
allocations in the PCI probe code so that we can zap work_on_cpu()
altogether.  The code there is rather nasty.  I can't think of anything
simple at this time...

kthread: move sched-realeted initialization from kthreadd context

kthreadd is the single thread which implements ths "create" request, move
sched_setscheduler/etc from create_kthread() to kthread_create() to
improve the scalability.

We should be careful with sched_setscheduler(), use _nochek helper.

11 years agodm kcopyd: fix callback race
Mikulas Patocka [Wed, 8 Apr 2009 23:27:17 +0000]
dm kcopyd: fix callback race

If the thread calling dm_kcopyd_copy is delayed due to scheduling inside
split_job/segment_complete and the subjobs complete before the loop in
split_job completes, the kcopyd callback could be invoked from the
thread that called dm_kcopyd_copy instead of the kcopyd workqueue.

dm_kcopyd_copy -> split_job -> segment_complete -> job->fn()

Snapshots depend on the fact that callbacks are called from the singlethreaded
kcopyd workqueue and expect that there is no racing between individual
callbacks. The racing between callbacks can lead to corruption of exception
store and it can also mean that exception store callbacks are called twice
for the same exception - a likely reason for crashes reported inside
pending_complete() / remove_exception().

This patch fixes two problems:

1. job->fn being called from the thread that submitted the job (see above).

- Fix: hand over the completion callback to the kcopyd thread.

2. job->fn(read_err, write_err, job->context); in segment_complete
reports the error of the last subjob, not the union of all errors.

- Fix: pass job->write_err to the callback to report all error bits
  (it is done already in run_complete_job)
