[GFS2] Tidy up glops calls

This patch doesn't make any changes to the ordering of the various
operations related to glocking, but it does tidy up the calls to the
glops.c functions to make the structure more obvious.

The two functions: gfs2_glock_xmote_th() and gfs2_glock_drop_th() can be
made static within glock.c since they are called by every set of glock
operations. The xmote_th and drop_th glock operations are then made
conditional upon those two routines existing and called from the
previously mentioned functions in glock.c respectively.

Also it can be seen that the go_sync operation isn't needed since it can
easily be replaced by calls to xmote_bh and drop_bh respectively. This
results in no longer (confusingly) calling back into routines in glock.c
from glops.c and also reducing the glock operations by one member.

[GFS2] Remove local exclusive glock mode

Here is a patch for GFS2 to remove the local exclusive flag. In
the places it was used, mutex's are always held earlier in the
call path, so it appears redundant in the LM_ST_SHARED case.

Also, the GFS2 holders were setting local exclusive in any case where
the requested lock was LM_ST_EXCLUSIVE. So the other places in the glock
code where the flag was tested have been replaced with tests for the
lock state being LM_ST_EXCLUSIVE in order to ensure the logic is the
same as before (i.e. LM_ST_EXCLUSIVE is always locally exclusive as well
as globally exclusive).

Steven Whitehouse [Thu, 18 Jan 2007 17:44:20 +0000]
[GFS2] Remove the "greedy" function from glock.[ch]

The "greedy" code was an attempt to retain glocks for a minimum length
of time when they relate to mmap()ed files. The current implementation
of this feature is not, however, ideal in that it required allocating
memory in order to do this and its overly complicated.

It also misses the mark by ignoring the other I/O operations which are
just as likely to suffer from the same problem. So the plan is to remove
this now and then add the functionality back as part of the glock state
machine at a later date (and thus take into account all the possible
users of this feature)

[GFS2] Shrink gfs2_inode memory by half

Here is something I spotted (while looking for something entirely
different) the other day.

Rather than using a completion in each and every struct gfs2_holder,
this removes it in favour of hashed wait queues, thus saving a
considerable amount of memory both on the stack (where a number of
gfs2_holder structures are allocated) and in particular in the
gfs2_inode which has 8 gfs2_holder structures embedded within it.

As a result on x86_64 the gfs2_inode shrinks from 2488 bytes to
1912 bytes, a saving of 576 bytes per inode (no thats not a typo!).
In actual practice we get a much better result than that since
now that a gfs2_inode is under the 2048 byte barrier, we get two
per 4k slab page effectively halving the amount of memory required
to store gfs2_inodes.

[GFS2] Clean up/speed up readdir

This removes the extra filldir callback which gfs2 was using to
enclose an attempt at readahead for inodes during readdir. The
code was too complicated and also hurts performance badly in the
case that the getdents64/readdir call isn't being followed by
stat() and it wasn't even getting it right all the time when it
was.

As a result, on my test box an "ls" of a directory containing 250000
files fell from about 7mins (freshly mounted, so nothing cached) to
between about 15 to 25 seconds. When the directory content was cached,
the time taken fell from about 3mins to about 4 or 5 seconds.

Interestingly in the cached case, running "ls -l" once reduced the time
taken for subsequent runs of "ls" to about 6 secs even without this
patch. Now it turns out that there was a special case of glocks being
used for prefetching the metadata, but because of the timeouts for these
locks (set to 10 secs) the metadata was being timed out before it was
being used and this the prefetch code was constantly trying to prefetch
the same data over and over.

Calling "ls -l" meant that the inodes were brought into memory and once
the inodes are cached, the glocks are not disposed of until the inodes
are pushed out of the cache, thus extending the lifetime of the glocks,
and thus bringing down the time for subsequent runs of "ls"
considerably.

David Teigland [Mon, 15 Jan 2007 16:28:22 +0000]
[DLM] fix master recovery

If master recovery happens on an rsb in one recovery sequence, then that
sequence is aborted before lock recovery happens, then in the next
sequence, we rely on the previous master recovery (which may now be
invalid due to another node ignoring a lookup result) and go on do to the
lock recovery where we get stuck due to an invalid master value.

 recovery cycle begins: master of rsb X has left
 nodes A and B send node C an rcom lookup for X to find the new master
 C gets lookup from B first, sets B as new master, and sends reply back to B
 C gets lookup from A next, and sends reply back to A saying B is master
 A gets lookup reply from C and sets B as the new master in the rsb
 recovery cycle on A, B and C is aborted to start a new recovery
 B gets lookup reply from C and ignores it since there's a new recovery
 recovery cycle begins: some other node has joined
 B doesn't think it's the master of X so it doesn't rebuild it in the directory
 C looks up the master of X, no one is master, so it becomes new master
 B looks up the master of X, finds it's C
 A believes that B is the master of X, so it sends its lock to B
 B sends an error back to A
 A resends
 this repeats forever, the incorrect master value on A is never corrected

The fix is to do master recovery on an rsb that still has the NEW_MASTER
flag set from an earlier recovery sequence, and therefore didn't complete
lock recovery.

It fixes a bug where there is a race between readpages and truncate
by ignoring readpages for stuffed files. This is ok because a stuffed
file will never be more than one block (minus sizeof(struct gfs2_dinode))
in size and block size is always less than page size, so we do not lose
anything efficiency-wise by not doing readahead for stuffed files. They
will have already been "read ahead" by the action of reading the inode
in, in the first place.

[GFS2] Fix DIO deadlock

This patch fixes Red Hat bugzilla #212627 in which a deadlock occurs
due to trying to take the i_mutex while holding a glock. The correct
locking order is defined as i_mutex -> glock in all cases.

I've left dealing with allocating writes. I know that we need to do
that, but for now this should do the trick. We don't need to take the
i_mutex on write, because the VFS has already taken it for us. On read
we don't need it since the glock is enough protection. The reason that
I've made some of the checks into a separate function is that we'll need
to do the checks again in the allocating write case eventually, so this
is partly in preparation for this. Likewise the return value test of !=
1 might look a bit odd and thats because we'll need a third return value
in case of requiring an allocation.

I've made the change to deferred mode on the glock to ensure flushing
read caches on other nodes. I notice that (using blktrace to look at
whats going on) we appear to do a better job of large I/Os than ext3
after this patch (in terms of not splitting up the I/Os).

message struct, it wasn't setting the flags in the stub message.  So, in
the process of receiving the fake message the lkb flags would be updated
and cleared from the zero flags in the message.  The problem observed in
tests was the loss of the USER flag which caused the dlm to think a user
lock was a kernel lock and subsequently fail an assertion checking the
validity of the ast/callback field.

[DLM] fix receive_request() lvb copying

LVB's are not sent as part of new requests, but the code receiving the
request was copying data into the lvb anyway.  The space in the message
where it mistakenly thought the lvb lived actually contained the resource
name, so it wound up incorrectly copying this name data into the lvb.  Fix
is to just create the lvb, not copy junk into it.

[DLM] fix send_args() lvb copying

The send_args() function is used to copy parameters into a message for a
number different message types.  Only some of those types are set up
beforehand (in create_message) to include space for sending lvb data.
send_args was wrongly copying the lvb for all message types as long as the
lock had an lvb.  This means that the lvb data was being written past the
end of the message into unknown space.

David Teigland [Wed, 13 Dec 2006 16:37:16 +0000]
[DLM] fix old rcom messages

A reply to a recovery message will often be received after the relevant
recovery sequence has aborted and the next recovery sequence has begun.
We need to ignore replies to these old messages from the previous
recovery.  There's already a way to do this for synchronous recovery
requests using the rc_id number, but not for async.

Each recovery sequence already has a locally unique sequence number
associated with it.  This patch adds a field to the rcom (recovery
message) structure where this recovery sequence number can be placed,
rc_seq.  When a node sends a reply to a recovery request, it copies the
rc_seq number it received into rc_seq_reply.  When the first node receives
the reply to its recovery message, it will check whether rc_seq_reply
matches the current recovery sequence number, ls_recover_seq, and if not
then it ignores the old reply.

An old, inadequate approach to filtering out old replies (checking if the
current stage of recovery has moved back to the start) has been removed
from two spots.

The protocol version number is changed to reflect the different rcom
structures.

There's a chance the new master of resource hasn't learned it's the new
master before another node sends it a lock during recovery.  The node
sending the lock needs to resend if this happens.

- A sends a master lookup for resource R to C
- B sends a master lookup for resource R to C
- C receives A's lookup, assigns A to be master of R and
  sends a reply back to A
- C receives B's lookup and sends a reply back to B saying
  that A is the master
- B receives lookup reply from C and sends its lock for R to A
- A receives lock from B, doesn't think it's the master of R
  and sends an error back to B
- A receives lookup reply from C and becomes master of R
- B gets error back from A and resends its lock back to A
  (this resending is what this patch does)
- A receives lock from B, it now sees it's the master of R

Magnus Damm [Sat, 3 Feb 2007 09:13:48 +0000]
[PATCH] kexec: Avoid migration of already disabled irqs (ia64)

This patch fixes up ia64 kexec support for HP rx2620 hardware.  It does
this by skipping migration of already disabled irqs.  This is most likely a
problem on other ia64 platforms as well, but I've only been able to
reproduce it on one machine so far.

The full story is that handle_bad_irq() gets invoked before starting the
new kernel without this patch.  This seems to happen when fixup_irqs()
calls generic_handle_irq() on already migrated (and disabled) irqs.  So by
avoiding migration of disabled irqs we stay away of handle_bad_irq().

The code has been tested on three different ia64 machines, all with good
results.  It is possible to trigger the same bug by offlining a processor
using echo 0 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpuX/online.

See report: http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-kernel&m=116599593200888&w=2

flush_workqueue() is not allowed to be called in the softirq context.
However, aio_complete() called from I/O interrupt can potentially call
put_ioctx with last ref count on ioctx and triggers bug.  It is simply
incorrect to perform ioctx freeing from aio_complete.

The bug is trigger-able from a race between io_destroy() and aio_complete().
A possible scenario:

cpu0                               cpu1
io_destroy                         aio_complete
  wait_for_all_aios {                __aio_put_req
     ...                                 ctx->reqs_active--;
     if (!ctx->reqs_active)
        return;
  }
  ...
  put_ioctx(ioctx)

                                     put_ioctx(ctx);
                                        __put_ioctx
                                          bam! Bug trigger!

The real problem is that the condition check of ctx->reqs_active in
wait_for_all_aios() is incorrect that access to reqs_active is not
being properly protected by spin lock.

This patch adds that protective spin lock, and at the same time removes
all duplicate ref counting for each kiocb as reqs_active is already used
as a ref count for each active ioctx.  This also ensures that buggy call
to flush_workqueue() in softirq context is eliminated.

[SCSI] sd: udev accessing an uninitialized scsi_disk field results in a crash

sd_probe() calls class_device_add() even before initializing the
sdkp->device variable. class_device_add() eventually results in the user mode
udev program to be called. udev program can read the the allow_restart
attribute of the newly created scsi device. This is resulting in a crash as
the show function for allow_restart (i.e sd_show_allow_restart) returns the
attribute value by reading the sdkp->device->allow_restart variable. As the
sdkp->device is not initialized before calling the user mode hotplug helper,
this results in a crash.
The patch below solves it by calling class_device_add() only after the
necessary fields in the scsi_disk structure are initialized properly.

Tejun Heo [Fri, 2 Feb 2007 05:51:09 +0000]
ahci/pata_jmicron: fix JMicron quirk

For all JMicrons except for 361 and 368, AHCI mode enable bits in the
Control(1) should be set.  This used to be done in both ahci and
pata_jmicron but while moving programming to PCI quirk, it was removed
from ahci part while still left in pata_jmicron.

The implemented JMicron PCI quirk was incorrect in that it didn't
program AHCI mode enable bits.  If pata_jmicron is loaded first and
programs those bits, the ahci ports work; otherwise, ahci device
detection fails miserably.

This patch makes JMicron PCI quirk clear SATA IDE mode bits and set
AHCI mode bits and remove the respective part from pata_jmicron.
Tested on JMB361, 363 and 368.

Linus Torvalds [Fri, 2 Feb 2007 16:07:42 +0000]
Revert "[PATCH] fix typo in geode_configre()@cyrix.c"

This reverts commit e4f0ae0ea63caceff37a13f281a72652b7ea71ba.

It's not wrong, but it's not right either, and everybody seems to agree
that the right fix is probably to do the ccr3 write after the ccr4 one
(and that we also should clean it up a bit).  And after that we need to
really validate that all the bits that we write to ccr4 actually do
work.

The old 2.6.19 code was insane, and basically didn't change ccr4 at all
(even though it certainly looks like it was the *intent* to do so).  So
let's revert the change that may fix things, just because it's not what
was actually ever tested when the code was written, even if it _was_ the
intent.

There's a discussion on http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/1/9/63 that was
started by the patch that now gets reverted, and that discussion may
well contain the proper long-term fix.

[NET_SCHED]: act_ipt: fix regression in ipt action

The x_tables patch broke target module autoloading in the ipt action
by replacing the ipt_find_target call (which does autoloading) by
xt_find_target (which doesn't do autoloading). Additionally xt_find_target
may return ERR_PTR values in case of an error, which are not handled.

Use xt_request_find_target, which does both autoloading and ERR_PTR
handling properly. Also don't forget to drop the target module reference
again when xt_check_target fails.

[PATCH] __crc_... is intended to be absolute

i386 boot/compressed/relocs checks for absolute symbols and warns about
unexpected ones.  If you build with modversions, you get ~2500 warnings
about __crc_<symbol>.  These suckers are really absolute symbols - we
do _not_ want to modify them on relocation.

They are generated by genksyms - EXPORT_... generates a weak alias, then
genksyms produces an ld script with __crc_<symbol> = <checksum> and it's
fed to ld to produce the final object file.  Their only use is to match
kernel and module at modprobe time; they _must_ be absolute.

boot/compressed/relocs has a whitelist of known absolute symbols, but
it doesn't know about __crc_... stuff.  As the result, we get shitloads
of false positives on any ld(1) version.

[PATCH] IPMI: fix timeout list handling

Fix a dangling pointer bug in ipmi_timeout_handler.  A list of timedout
messages is not re-initialized before reuse, causing the head of the list
to point to freed memory.

[PATCH] uml: fix signal frame alignment

Use the same signal frame alignment calculations as the underlying
architecture.  x86_64 appeared to do this, but the "- 8" was really
subtracting 8 * sizeof(struct rt_sigframe) rather than 8 bytes.

UML/i386 might have been OK, but I changed the calculation to match
i386 just to be sure.

[PATCH] Fix VIA quirks

Fix VIA quirks that were recently broken by Alan Cox in the upstream
kernel (commit 1597cacbe39802d86656d1f2e6329895bd2ef531).

My understanding is that pci_find_present() doesn't work yet at the time
the quirks are run.  So I used a two-step quirk as is done for some other
quirks already.  First we detect the VIA south bridges and set the right
low and high device limits, then we are ready to actually run the quirks on
the affected devices.

But keep it as a dprintk

The message can be generated in a quite normal situation:
 If a 'lock' request is interrupted, then the lock client needs to
  record that the server has the lock, incase it does.
 When we come the unlock, the server might say it doesn't, even
  though we think it does (or might) and this generates the message.

When processing a HEARTBEAT-ACK it's possible that the transport rto
timers will not be updated because a prior T3-RTX processing would
have cleared the rto_pending flag on the transport.  However, if
we received a valid HEARTBEAT-ACK, we want to force update the
rto variables, so re-set the rto_pending flag before calling
sctp_transport_update_rto().

12 years ago[IPV6]: fix BUG of ndisc_send_redirect()
Li Yewang [Tue, 30 Jan 2007 22:33:20 +0000]
[IPV6]: fix BUG of ndisc_send_redirect()

  When I tested IPv6 redirect function about kernel 2.6.19.1, and found
that the kernel can send redirect packets whose target address is global
address, and the target is not the actual endpoint of communication.

  But the criteria conform to RFC2461, the target address defines as
following:

  Target Address An IP address that is a better first hop to use for
                 he ICMP Destination Address.  When the target is
                 the actual endpoint of communication, i.e., the
                 destination is a neighbor, the Target Address field
                 MUST contain the same value as the ICMP Destination
                 Address field.  Otherwise the target is a better
                 first-hop router and the Target Address MUST be the
                 router's link-local address so that hosts can
                 uniquely identify routers.

According to this definition, when a router redirect to a host, the
target address either the better first-hop router's link-local address
or the same as the ICMP destination address field. But the function of
ndisc_send_redirect() in net/ipv6/ndisc.c, does not check the target
address correctly.

There is another definition about receive Redirect message in RFC2461:

8.1.  Validation of Redirect Messages

   A host MUST silently discard any received Redirect message that does
   not satisfy all of the following validity checks:
   ......
   - The ICMP Target Address is either a link-local address (when
     redirected to a router) or the same as the ICMP Destination
     Address (when redirected to the on-link destination).
   ......

And the receive redirect function of ndisc_redirect_rcv() implemented
this definition, checks the target address correctly.
    if (ipv6_addr_equal(dest, target)) {
        on_link = 1;
    } else if (!(ipv6_addr_type(target) & IPV6_ADDR_LINKLOCAL)) {
        ND_PRINTK2(KERN_WARNING
               "ICMPv6 Redirect: target address is not link-local.\n");
        return;
    }

So, I think the send redirect function must check the target address
also.
