8 years agointel drivers: repair missing flush operations
Jesse Brandeburg [Wed, 20 Jul 2011 00:56:21 +0000]
intel drivers: repair missing flush operations

after review of all intel drivers, found several instances where
drivers had the incorrect pattern of:
memory mapped write();
delay();

which should always be:
memory mapped write();
write flush(); /* aka memory mapped read */
delay();

explanation:
The reason for including the flush is that writes can be held
(posted) in PCI/PCIe bridges, but the read always has to complete
synchronously and therefore has to flush all pending writes to a
device.  If a write is held and followed by a delay, the delay
means nothing because the write may not have reached hardware
(maybe even not until the next read)

net: fix NULL dereferences in check_peer_redir()

Gergely Kalman reported crashes in check_peer_redir().

It appears commit f39925dbde778 (ipv4: Cache learned redirect
information in inetpeer.) added a race, leading to possible NULL ptr
dereference.

Since we can now change dst neighbour, we should make sure a reader can
safely use a neighbour.

Add RCU protection to dst neighbour, and make sure check_peer_redir()
can be called safely by different cpus in parallel.

As neighbours are already freed after one RCU grace period, this patch
should not add typical RCU penalty (cache cold effects)

Many thanks to Gergely for providing a pretty report pointing to the
bug.

This driver uses information from the self member of the pci_bus struct to
get information regarding the bridge to which the PCIe device is attached.
Unfortunately, this member is not established on all architectures, which
leads to a kernel oops.

Skipping the entire block that uses the self member to determine the bridge
vendor will only affect RTL8192DE devices as that driver sets the ASPM support
flag differently when the bridge vendor is Intel. If the self member is

Here is my updated patch...

Subject: [PATCH net-next-2.6 v2] bonding: reduce noise during init

Many are using sysfs to configure bonding rather than module options, so
there is no need for bonding to throw this warning in normal cases.

bonding: fix string comparison errors

When a bond contains a device where one name is the subset of another
(eth1 and eth10, for example), one cannot properly set the primary
device or the currently active device.

This was reported and based on work by Takuma Umeya.  I also verified
the problem and tested that this fix resolves it.

V2: A few did not like the the current code or my changes, so I
refactored bonding_store_primary and bonding_store_active_slave to be a
bit cleaner, dropped the use of strnicmp since we did not really need
the comparison to be case insensitive, and formatted the input string
from sysfs so a comparison to IFNAMSIZ could be used.

I also discovered an error in bonding_store_active_slave that would
modify bond->primary_slave rather than bond->curr_active_slave before
forcing the bonding driver to choose a new active slave.

V3: Actually sending the proper patch....

8 years agonet: Audit drivers to identify those needing IFF_TX_SKB_SHARING cleared
Neil Horman [Tue, 26 Jul 2011 06:05:38 +0000]
net: Audit drivers to identify those needing IFF_TX_SKB_SHARING cleared

After the last patch, We are left in a state in which only drivers calling
ether_setup have IFF_TX_SKB_SHARING set (we assume that drivers touching real
hardware call ether_setup for their net_devices and don't hold any state in
their skbs.  There are a handful of drivers that violate this assumption of
course, and need to be fixed up.  This patch identifies those drivers, and marks
them as not being able to support the safe transmission of skbs by clearning the
IFF_TX_SKB_SHARING flag in priv_flags

Pktgen attempts to transmit shared skbs to net devices, which can't be used by

8 years agosparc: Detect and handle UltraSPARC-T3 cpu types.
David S. Miller [Thu, 28 Jul 2011 04:06:16 +0000]
sparc: Detect and handle UltraSPARC-T3 cpu types.

The cpu compatible string we look for is "SPARC-T3".

As far as memset/memcpy optimizations go, we treat this chip the same
as Niagara-T2/T2+.  Use cache initializing stores for memset, and use
perfetch, FPU block loads, cache initializing stores, and block stores
for copies.

We use the Niagara-T2 perf support, since T3 is a close relative in
this regard.  Later we'll add support for the new events T3 can
report, plus enable T3's new "sample" mode.

For now I haven't added any new ELF hwcap flags.  We probably need
to add a couple, for example:

T2 and T3 both support the population count instruction in hardware.

T3 supports VIS3 instructions, including support (finally) for
partitioned shift.  One can also now move directly between float
and integer registers.

T3 supports instructions meant to help with Galois Field and other HPC
calculations, such as XOR multiply.  Also there are "OP and negate"
instructions, for example "fnmul" which is multiply-and-negate.

T3 recognizes the transactional memory opcodes, however since
transactional memory isn't supported: 1) 'commit' behaves as a NOP and
2) 'chkpt' always branches 3) 'rdcps' returns all zeros and 4) 'wrcps'
behaves as a NOP.

So we'll need about 3 new elf capability flags in the end to represent
all of these things.

Currently when we get a read error during recovery, we simply abort

Instead, repeat the read in page-sized blocks.
On successful reads, write to the target.
On read errors, record a bad block on the destination,
and only if that fails do we abort the recovery.

As we now retry reads we need to know where we read from.  This was in
bi_sector but that can be changed during a read attempt.
So store the correct from_addr and to_addr in the r10_bio for later

md/raid10:  attempt to fix read errors during resync/check

We already attempt to fix read errors found during normal IO
and a 'repair' process.
It is best to try to repair them at any time they are found,
so move a test so that during sync and check a read error will
be corrected by over-writing with good data.

If both (all) devices have known bad blocks in the sync section we
won't try to fix even though the bad blocks might not overlap.  That
should be considered later.

Also if we hit a read error during recovery we don't try to fix it.
It would only be possible to fix if there were at least three copies
of data, which is not very common with RAID10.  But it should still
be considered later.

    the chosen slot, but also how many good blocks are available
    there.
 2/ read submission must be ready to issue multiple reads to

    could mean that a single large read cannot be served by any one
    device, but can still be served by the array.
    This requires keeping count of the number of outstanding requests
    per bio.  This count is stored in 'bi_phys_segments'

On read error we currently just fail the request if another target
cannot handle the whole request.  Next patch refines that a bit.

   strip (1 page wide).
   Note that we will both avoid reading and avoid writing.
   This is correct (as we will never read from the block, there
   is no point writing), but not optimal (as writing could 'fix'
   the error) - that will be addressed later.

If we have not seen any write errors on the device yet, we treat a bad
block like a recent read error.  This will encourage an attempt to fix
the read error which will either generate a write error, or will
ensure good data is stored there.  We don't yet forget the bad block
in that case.  That comes later.

Now that we honour bad blocks when reading we can allow devices with
bad blocks into the array.

8 years agomd/raid1: factor several functions out or raid1d()

md/raid1: factor several functions out or raid1d()

raid1d is too big with several deep branches.
So separate them out into their own functions.

8 years agomd/raid1: improve handling of read failure during recovery.
NeilBrown [Thu, 28 Jul 2011 01:33:42 +0000]
md/raid1: improve handling of read failure during recovery.

If we cannot read a block from anywhere during recovery, there is
now a better approach than just giving up.
We can record a bad block on each device and keep going - being
careful not to clear the bad block when a write succeeds as it might -
it will be a write of incorrect data.

We have now reached the state where - for raid1 - we only call
md_error if md_set_badblocks has failed.
