memstick: allow "set_param" method to return an error code

Some controllers (Jmicron, for instance) can report temporal failure
condition during power-on.  It is desirable to account for this using a
return value of "set_param" device method.  The return value can also be
handy to distinguish between supported and unsupported device parameters
in run time.

The calgary code can give drivers addresses above 4GB which is very bad
for hardware that is only 32bit DMA addressable.

With this patch, the calgary code sets the global dma_ops to swiotlb or
nommu properly, and the dma_ops of devices behind the Calgary/CalIOC2
to calgary_dma_ops.  So the calgary code can handle devices safely that
aren't behind the Calgary/CalIOC2.

11 years agodma-mapping: add the device argument to dma_mapping_error()
FUJITA Tomonori [Sat, 26 Jul 2008 02:44:49 +0000]
dma-mapping: add the device argument to dma_mapping_error()

Add per-device dma_mapping_ops support for CONFIG_X86_64 as POWER
architecture does:

This enables us to cleanly fix the Calgary IOMMU issue that some devices
are not behind the IOMMU (http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/5/8/423).

I think that per-device dma_mapping_ops support would be also helpful for
KVM people to support PCI passthrough but Andi thinks that this makes it
difficult to support the PCI passthrough (see the above thread).  So I
CC'ed this to KVM camp.  Comments are appreciated.

A pointer to dma_mapping_ops to struct dev_archdata is added.  If the
pointer is non NULL, DMA operations in asm/dma-mapping.h use it.  If it's
NULL, the system-wide dma_ops pointer is used as before.

If it's useful for KVM people, I plan to implement a mechanism to register
a hook called when a new pci (or dma capable) device is created (it works
with hot plugging).  It enables IOMMUs to set up an appropriate
dma_mapping_ops per device.

The major obstacle is that dma_mapping_error doesn't take a pointer to the
device unlike other DMA operations.  So x86 can't have dma_mapping_ops per
device.  Note all the POWER IOMMUs use the same dma_mapping_error function
so this is not a problem for POWER but x86 IOMMUs use different
dma_mapping_error functions.

The first patch adds the device argument to dma_mapping_error.  The patch
is trivial but large since it touches lots of drivers and dma-mapping.h in
all the architecture.

This patch:

dma_mapping_error() doesn't take a pointer to the device unlike other DMA
operations.  So we can't have dma_mapping_ops per device.

Note that POWER already has dma_mapping_ops per device but all the POWER
IOMMUs use the same dma_mapping_error function.  x86 IOMMUs use device
argument.

those ports; it did not use to but this is not a (kernel) regression.

isa: set 24-bit dma_mask for ISA devices

dma_alloc_coherent() on x86 currently takes a passed in NULL device
pointer to mean that it should allocate an ISA compatible (24-bit) buffer
which is a bit of a hack.

The ALSA ISA drivers are the main consumers of this but have a struct
device in fact readily available.

For the legacy drivers, this sets the device dma_mask in preparation for
using the actual device with the DMA API so as to eventually not need the
NULL hack in dma_alloc_coherent().

This does not fix a current bug -- 2.6.26-rc1 stumbled over the NULL hack
in dma_alloc_coherent() but this has already been fixed in commit

edac: core fix added newline to sysfs dimm labels

The channel DIMM label does not seem to be used much in the edac code.
However, where it is used (in the core code), it is assumed to not have a
newline embedded.  This leaves the sysfs file newline free which looks
funny when cat'ing it.  Here we just add the trailing newline to the sysfs
chX_dimm_label output...

[Doug Thompson note: the DIMM label is one of the primary uses of EDAC.
User space daemon scripts, edac-utils@sourceforge, populate the DIMM label
fields, via /sys/devices/system/edac attributes, with the silk screen
labels of the motherboard in use.  dmidecode access BIOS tables, but BIOS
tables are well known to be incorrect and useless in these respects.
edac-utils will strip off any newlines before its use of the output, when
displaying DIMM slot silk screen labels.

11 years agoedac: i5100 new intel chipset driver
Arthur Jones [Fri, 25 Jul 2008 08:49:04 +0000]
edac: i5100 new intel chipset driver

Preliminary support for the Intel 5100 MCH.  CE and UE errors are reported
along with the current DIMM label information and other memory parameters.

Reasons why this is preliminary:

1) This chip has 2 independent memory controllers which, for best
   perforance, use interleaved accesses to the DDR2 memory.  This
   architecture does not map very well to the current edac data structures
   which depend on symmetric channel access to the interleaved data.
   Without core changes, the best I could do for now is to map both memory
   controllers to different csrows (first all ranks of controller 0, then
   all ranks of controller 1).  Someone much more familiar with the edac
   core than I will probably need to come up with a more general data
   structure to handle the interleaving and de-interleaving of the two
   memory controllers.

2) I have not yet tackled the de-interleaving of the rank/controller
   address space into the physical address space of the CPU.  There is
   nothing fundamentally missing, it is just ending up to be a lot of
   code, and I'd rather keep it separate for now, esp since it doesn't
   work yet...

3) The code depends on a particular i5100 chip select to DIMM mainboard
   chip select mapping.  This mapping seems obvious to me in order to
   support dual and single ranked memory, but it is not unique and DIMM
   labels could be wrong on other mainboards.  There is no way to query
   this mapping that I know of.

lock manager to work with fuse.

Adding lockd support for remote locking is also possible, but more rarely

fuse: nfs export special lookups

Implement looking up an inode by node ID after it has been evicted from

(for all file types, not just directories).

Miklos Szeredi [Fri, 25 Jul 2008 08:49:00 +0000]
fuse: add export operations

Implement export_operations, to allow fuse filesystems to be exported to
NFS.  This feature has been in the out-of-tree fuse module, and is widely
used and tested.

It has not been originally merged into mainline, because doing the NFS
export in userspace was thought to be a cleaner and more efficient way of
doing it, than through the kernel.

While that is true, it would also have involved a lot of duplicated effort
at reimplementing NFS exporting (all the different versions of the
protocol).  This effort was unfortunately not undertaken by anyone, so we
are left with doing it the easy but less efficient way.

If this feature goes in, the out-of-tree fuse module can go away,
which would have several advantages:

  - not having to maintain two versions
  - less confusion for users
  - no bugs due to kernel API changes

Comment from hch:
 - Use the same fh_type values as XFS, since we use the same fh encoding.

locks: add special return value for asynchronous locks

Use a special error value FILE_LOCK_DEFERRED to mean that a locking
operation returned asynchronously.  This is returned by

  posix_lock_file() for sleeping locks to mean that the lock has been
  queued on the block list, and will be woken up when it might become
  available and needs to be retried (either fl_lmops->fl_notify() is
  called or fl_wait is woken up).

  f_op->lock() to mean either the above, or that the filesystem will
  call back with fl_lmops->fl_grant() when the result of the locking
  operation is known.  The filesystem can do this for sleeping as well
  as non-sleeping locks.

This is to make sure, that return values of -EAGAIN and -EINPROGRESS by
filesystems are not mistaken to mean an asynchronous locking.

This also makes error handling in fs/locks.c and lockd/svclock.c slightly
cleaner.

11 years agobsdacct: make check timer accept a bsd_acct_struct argument

bsdacct: make check timer accept a bsd_acct_struct argument

We're going to have many bsd_acct_struct instances, not just one, so the
timer (currently working with a global one) has to know which one to work
with.

Use a handy setup_timer macro for it (thanks to Oleg for one).

11 years agobsdacct: rename acct_gbls to bsd_acct_struct
Pavel Emelyanov [Fri, 25 Jul 2008 08:48:42 +0000]
bsdacct: rename acct_gbls to bsd_acct_struct

After I fixed access to task->tgid in kernel/acct.c, Oleg pointed out some
bad side effects with this accounting vs pid namespaces interaction.  I.e.
 when some task in pid namespace sets this accounting up, this blocks all
the others from doing the same.  Restricting this to init namespace only
could help, but didn't look a graceful solution.

So here is the approach to make this accounting work with pid namespaces
properly.

The idea is simple - when a task dies it accounts itself in each namespace
it is visible from and which set the accounting up.

For example here are the commands run and the output of lastcomm from init
and sub namespaces:

init_ns# accton pacct
 sub_ns# accton pacct (this is a different file - sub ns is run in
                       a chroot-ed environment)
init_ns# cat /dev/null
 sub_ns# ls /dev/null
init_ns# accton
 sub_ns# accton

 sub_ns#  lastcomm -f pacct
ls                      0        [136,0]    0.00 secs Thu May 15 10:30
accton                  0        [136,0]    0.00 secs Thu May 15 10:30

init_ns# lastcomm -f pacct
accton                  root     pts/0      0.00 secs Thu May 15 14:30 << got from sub
cat                     root     pts/1      0.00 secs Thu May 15 14:30
ls                      root     pts/0      0.00 secs Thu May 15 14:30 << got from sub
accton                  root     pts/1      0.00 secs Thu May 15 14:30

That was the summary, the details are in patches.

This patch:

It will be visible in pid_namespace.h file, so fix its name to look better
outside the acct.c file.

difference.  The units of acct_rss_mem1 and acct_vm_mem1 are also changed from

sysctl: allow override of /proc/sys/net with CAP_NET_ADMIN

Extend the permission check for networking sysctl's to allow modification
when current process has CAP_NET_ADMIN capability and is not root.  This
version uses the until now unused permissions hook to override the mode
value for /proc/sys/net if accessed by a user with capabilities.

Found while working with Quagga.  It is impossible to turn forwarding
on/off through the command interface because Quagga uses secure coding
practice of dropping privledges during initialization and only raising via
capabilities when necessary.  Since the dameon has reset real/effective
uid after initialization, all attempts to access /proc/sys/net variables
will fail.
