[PATCH] knfsd: svcrpc: fix gss krb5i memory leak

The memory leak here is embarassingly obvious.

This fixes a problem that causes the kernel to leak a small amount of memory
every time it receives a integrity-protected request.

Thanks to Aim Le Rouzic for the bug report.

[PATCH] remove the broken BLK_DEV_SWIM_IOP driver

The BLK_DEV_SWIM_IOP driver has:
- already been marked as BROKEN in 2.6.0 three years ago and
- is still marked as BROKEN.

Drivers that had been marked as BROKEN for such a long time seem to be
unlikely to be revived in the forseeable future.

But if anyone wants to ever revive this driver, the code is still
present in the older kernel releases.

Jeremy Fitzhardinge [Wed, 13 Dec 2006 08:34:49 +0000]
[PATCH] Use activate_mm() in fs/aio.c:use_mm()

activate_mm() is not the right thing to be using in use_mm().  It should be
switch_mm().

On normal x86, they're synonymous, but for the Xen patches I'm adding a
hook which assumes that activate_mm is only used the first time a new mm
is used after creation (I have another hook for dealing with dup_mm).  I
think this use of activate_mm() is the only place where it could be used
a second time on an mm.

>From a quick look at the other architectures I think this is OK (most
simply implement one in terms of the other), but some are doing some
subtly different stuff between the two.

[PATCH] lockdep: fix possible races while disabling lock-debugging

Jarek Poplawski noticed that lockdep global state could be accessed in a
racy way if one CPU did a lockdep assert (shutting lockdep down), while the
other CPU would try to do something that changes its global state.

This patch fixes those races and cleans up lockdep's internal locking by
adding a graph_lock()/graph_unlock()/debug_locks_off_graph_unlock helpers.

(Also note that as we all know the Linux kernel is, by definition, bug-free
and perfect, so this code never triggers, so these fixes are highly
theoretical.  I wrote this patch for aesthetic reasons alone.)

[PATCH] optimize o_direct on block devices

Implement block device specific .direct_IO method instead of going through
generic direct_io_worker for block device.

direct_io_worker() is fairly complex because it needs to handle O_DIRECT on
file system, where it needs to perform block allocation, hole detection,
extents file on write, and tons of other corner cases.  The end result is
that it takes tons of CPU time to submit an I/O.

For block device, the block allocation is much simpler and a tight triple
loop can be written to iterate each iovec and each page within the iovec in
order to construct/prepare bio structure and then subsequently submit it to
the block layer.  This significantly speeds up O_D on block device.

12 years ago[PATCH] PM: Fix SMP races in the freezer
Rafael J. Wysocki [Wed, 13 Dec 2006 08:34:30 +0000]
[PATCH] PM: Fix SMP races in the freezer

Currently, to tell a task that it should go to the refrigerator, we set the
PF_FREEZE flag for it and send a fake signal to it.  Unfortunately there
are two SMP-related problems with this approach.  First, a task running on
another CPU may be updating its flags while the freezer attempts to set
PF_FREEZE for it and this may leave the task's flags in an inconsistent
state.  Second, there is a potential race between freeze_process() and
refrigerator() in which freeze_process() running on one CPU is reading a
task's PF_FREEZE flag while refrigerator() running on another CPU has just
set PF_FROZEN for the same task and attempts to reset PF_FREEZE for it.  If
the refrigerator wins the race, freeze_process() will state that PF_FREEZE
hasn't been set for the task and will set it unnecessarily, so the task
will go to the refrigerator once again after it's been thawed.

To solve first of these problems we need to stop using PF_FREEZE to tell
tasks that they should go to the refrigerator.  Instead, we can introduce a
special TIF_*** flag and use it for this purpose, since it is allowed to
change the other tasks' TIF_*** flags and there are special calls for it.

To avoid the freeze_process()-refrigerator() race we can make
freeze_process() to always check the task's PF_FROZEN flag after it's read
its "freeze" flag.  We should also make sure that refrigerator() will
always reset the task's "freeze" flag after it's set PF_FROZEN for it.

12 years ago[PATCH] PM: Fix freezing of stopped tasks
Rafael J. Wysocki [Wed, 13 Dec 2006 08:34:28 +0000]
[PATCH] PM: Fix freezing of stopped tasks

Currently, if a task is stopped (ie.  it's in the TASK_STOPPED state), it
is considered by the freezer as unfreezeable.  However, there may be a race
between the freezer and the delivery of the continuation signal to the task
resulting in the task running after we have finished freezing the other
tasks.  This, in turn, may lead to undesirable effects up to and including
data corruption.

To prevent this from happening we first need to make the freezer consider
stopped tasks as freezeable.  For this purpose we need to make freezeable()
stop returning 0 for these tasks and we need to force them to enter the
refrigerator.  However, if there's no continuation signal in the meantime,
the stopped tasks should remain stopped after all processes have been
thawed, so we need to send an additional SIGSTOP to each of them before
waking it up.

Also, a stopped task that has just been woken up should first check if
there's a freezing request for it and go to the refrigerator if that's the
case.

12 years ago[PATCH] SLAB: use a multiply instead of a divide in obj_to_index()
Eric Dumazet [Wed, 13 Dec 2006 08:34:27 +0000]
[PATCH] SLAB: use a multiply instead of a divide in obj_to_index()

When some objects are allocated by one CPU but freed by another CPU we can
consume lot of cycles doing divides in obj_to_index().

(Typical load on a dual processor machine where network interrupts are
handled by one particular CPU (allocating skbufs), and the other CPU is
running the application (consuming and freeing skbufs))

Here on one production server (dual-core AMD Opteron 285), I noticed this
divide took 1.20 % of CPU_CLK_UNHALTED events in kernel.  But Opteron are
quite modern cpus and the divide is much more expensive on oldest
architectures :

On a 200 MHz sparcv9 machine, the division takes 64 cycles instead of 1
cycle for a multiply.

Doing some math, we can use a reciprocal multiplication instead of a divide.

If we want to compute V = (A / B)  (A and B being u32 quantities)
we can instead use :

V = ((u64)A * RECIPROCAL(B)) >> 32 ;

where RECIPROCAL(B) is precalculated to ((1LL << 32) + (B - 1)) / B

Note :

I wrote pure C code for clarity. gcc output for i386 is not optimal but
acceptable :

mull   0x14(%ebx)
mov    %edx,%eax // part of the >> 32
xor     %edx,%edx // useless
mov    %eax,(%esp) // could be avoided
mov    %edx,0x4(%esp) // useless
mov    (%esp),%ebx

12 years ago[PATCH] cpuset: rework cpuset_zone_allowed api
Paul Jackson [Wed, 13 Dec 2006 08:34:25 +0000]
[PATCH] cpuset: rework cpuset_zone_allowed api

Elaborate the API for calling cpuset_zone_allowed(), so that users have to
explicitly choose between the two variants:

  cpuset_zone_allowed_hardwall()
  cpuset_zone_allowed_softwall()

Until now, whether or not you got the hardwall flavor depended solely on
whether or not you or'd in the __GFP_HARDWALL gfp flag to the gfp_mask
argument.

If you didn't specify __GFP_HARDWALL, you implicitly got the softwall
version.

Unfortunately, this meant that users would end up with the softwall version
without thinking about it.  Since only the softwall version might sleep,
this led to bugs with possible sleeping in interrupt context on more than
one occassion.

The hardwall version requires that the current tasks mems_allowed allows
the node of the specified zone (or that you're in interrupt or that
__GFP_THISNODE is set or that you're on a one cpuset system.)

The softwall version, depending on the gfp_mask, might allow a node if it
was allowed in the nearest enclusing cpuset marked mem_exclusive (which
requires taking the cpuset lock 'callback_mutex' to evaluate.)

This patch removes the cpuset_zone_allowed() call, and forces the caller to
explicitly choose between the hardwall and the softwall case.

If the caller wants the gfp_mask to determine this choice, they should (1)
be sure they can sleep or that __GFP_HARDWALL is set, and (2) invoke the
cpuset_zone_allowed_softwall() routine.

This adds another 100 or 200 bytes to the kernel text space, due to the few
lines of nearly duplicate code at the top of both cpuset_zone_allowed_*
routines.  It should save a few instructions executed for the calls that
turned into calls of cpuset_zone_allowed_hardwall, thanks to not having to
set (before the call) then check (within the call) the __GFP_HARDWALL flag.

For the most critical call, from get_page_from_freelist(), the same
instructions are executed as before -- the old cpuset_zone_allowed()
routine it used to call is the same code as the
cpuset_zone_allowed_softwall() routine that it calls now.

Not a perfect win, but seems worth it, to reduce this chance of hitting a
sleeping with irq off complaint again.

Christoph Lameter [Wed, 13 Dec 2006 08:34:23 +0000]
[PATCH] Cleanup slab headers / API to allow easy addition of new slab allocators

This is a response to an earlier discussion on linux-mm about splitting
slab.h components per allocator.  Patch is against 2.6.19-git11.  See
http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-mm&m=116469577431008&w=2

This patch cleans up the slab header definitions.  We define the common
functions of slob and slab in slab.h and put the extra definitions needed
for slab's kmalloc implementations in <linux/slab_def.h>.  In order to get
a greater set of common functions we add several empty functions to slob.c
and also rename slob's kmalloc to __kmalloc.

Slob does not need any special definitions since we introduce a fallback
case.  If there is no need for a slab implementation to provide its own
kmalloc mess^H^H^Hacros then we simply fall back to __kmalloc functions.
That is sufficient for SLOB.

Sort the function in slab.h according to their functionality.  First the
functions operating on struct kmem_cache * then the kmalloc related
functions followed by special debug and fallback definitions.

Also redo a lot of comments.

[PATCH] reorder struct pipe_buf_operations

Fields of struct pipe_buf_operations have not a precise layout (ie not
optimized to fit cache lines nor reduce cache line ping pongs)

The bufs[] array is *large* and is placed near the beginning of the
structure, so all following fields have a large offset.  This is
unfortunate because many archs have smaller instructions when using small
offsets relative to a base register.  On x86 for example, 7 bits offsets
have smaller instruction lengths.

Moving bufs[] at the end of pipe_buf_operations permits all fields to have
small offsets, and reduce text size, and icache pressure.

# size vmlinux.pre vmlinux
    text    data     bss     dec     hex filename
3268989  664356  492196 4425541  438745 vmlinux.pre
3268765  664356  492196 4425317  438665 vmlinux

So this patch reduces text size by 224 bytes on my x86_64 machine. Similar
results on ia32.

[PATCH] kconfig: add "void conf_set_changed_callback(void (*fn)(void))", use it in qconf.cc

Added function sets "void (*conf_changed_callback)(void)".  Call it, if
.config's changed state changes.  Use above in qconf.cc to set gui's
save-widget's sensitvity.

12 years ago[PATCH] kconfig: make sym_change_count static, let it be altered by 2 functions only
Karsten Wiese [Wed, 13 Dec 2006 08:34:07 +0000]
[PATCH] kconfig: make sym_change_count static, let it be altered by 2 functions only

Those two functions are
void sym_set_change_count(int count)
and
void sym_add_change_count(int count)

All write accesses to sym_change_count are replaced by calls to above
functions.

Variable and changer-functions are moved to confdata.c.  IMO thats ok, as
sym_change_count is an attribute of the .config's change state.

12 years ago[PATCH] kconfig: new function "bool conf_get_changed(void)"
Karsten Wiese [Wed, 13 Dec 2006 08:34:06 +0000]
[PATCH] kconfig: new function "bool conf_get_changed(void)"

Run "make xconfig" on a freshly untarred kernel-tree.  Look at the floppy disk
icon of the qt application, that has just started: Its in a normal, active
state.

Mouse click on it: .config is being saved.

This patch series changes things so taht
after the mouse click on the floppy disk icon, the icon is greyed out.
If you mouse click on it now, nothing happens.

If you change some CONFIG_*, the floppy disk icon returns to "active state",
that is, if you mouse click it now, .config is written.

This patch:

Returns sym_change_count to reflect the .config's change state.
All read only accesses of
sym_change_count
are replaced by calls to
conf_get_changed()
.
mconfig.c is manipulated to ask for saving only when
conf_get_changed() returned true.

Eric W. Biederman [Wed, 13 Dec 2006 08:34:04 +0000]
[PATCH] Revert "[PATCH] identifier to nsproxy"

This reverts commit 373beb35cd6b625e0ba4ad98baace12310a26aa8.

No one is using this identifier yet.  The purpose of this identifier is to
export nsproxy to user space which is wrong.  nsproxy is an internal
implementation optimization, which should keep our fork times from getting
slower as we increase the number of global namespaces you don't have to
share.

Adding a global identifier like this is inappropriate because it makes
namespaces inherently non-recursive, greatly limiting what we can do with
them in the future.

freeing neighbour") will make iterate over the skb_queue to free any
packets left over when freeing the ipoib_neigh structure.

This fixes a crash when freeing ipoib_neigh structures allocated in
ipoib_mcast_send(), which otherwise don't have their skb_queue
initialized.

[CPUFREQ] p4-clockmod: fix support for Core

Support for Core CPUs was broken in two ways in speedstep-lib: for x86_64,
we missed a MSR definition; for both x86_64 and i386, the FSB calculation
was wrong by four (it's a quad-pumped bus). Also increase the accuracy
of the calculation.
