This also means that SIGSTOP or sig_kernel_coredump() signal can't
be delivered to pgrp/session reliably.

With this patch copy_process() returns -ERESTARTNOINTR when it

after handling the signals.

This patch also deletes now unneeded "group_stop_count > 0" check,

This patch kills PIDTYPE_TGID pid_type thus saving one hash table in
kernel/pid.c and speeding up subthreads create/destroy a bit.  It is also a
preparation for the further tref/pids rework.

This patch adds 'struct list_head thread_group' to 'struct task_struct'
instead.

We don't detach group leader from PIDTYPE_PID namespace until another
thread inherits it's ->pid == ->tgid, so we are safe wrt premature
free_pidmap(->tgid) call.

Currently there are no users of find_task_by_pid_type(PIDTYPE_TGID).
Should the need arise, we can use find_task_by_pid()->group_leader.

Oleg Nesterov [Wed, 29 Mar 2006 00:11:20 +0000]
[PATCH] do __unhash_process() under ->siglock

This patch moves __unhash_process() call from realease_task() to
__exit_signal(), so __detach_pid() is called with ->siglock held.

This means we don't need tasklist_lock to iterate over thread group anymore:

copy_process() was already changed to do attach_pid()
under ->siglock.

Eric's "pidhash-kill-switch_exec_pids.patch" from -mm
changed de_thread() so it doesn't touch PIDTYPE_TGID.

NOTE: de_thread() still needs some attention.  It still changes task->pid
lockless.  Taking ->sighand.siglock here allows to do more tasklist_lock
removals.

[PATCH] copy_process: cleanup bad_fork_cleanup_signal

__exit_signal() does important cleanups atomically under ->siglock.  It is
also called from copy_process's error path.  This is not good, for example we
can't move __unhash_process() under ->siglock for that reason.

We should not mix these 2 paths, just look at ugly 'if (p->sighand)' under
'bad_fork_cleanup_sighand:' label.  For copy_process() case it is sufficient
to just backout copy_signal(), nothing more.

Again, nobody can see this task yet.  For CLONE_THREAD case we just decrement
signal->count, otherwise nobody can see this ->signal and we can free it
lockless.

This patch assumes it is safe to do exit_thread_group_keys() without
tasklist_lock.

[PATCH] introduce lock_task_sighand() helper

Add lock_task_sighand() helper and converts group_send_sig_info() to use
it.  Hopefully we will have more users soon.

This patch also removes '!sighand->count' and '!p->usage' checks, I think
they both are bogus, racy and unneeded (but probably it makes sense to
restore them as BUG_ON()s).

->sighand is cleared and it's ->count is decremented in release_task() with
sighand->siglock held, so it is a bug to have '!p->usage || !->count' after
we already locked and verified it is the same.  On the other hand, an
already dead task without ->sighand can have a non-zero ->usage due to
ptrace, for example.

If we read the stale value of ->sighand we must see the change after
spin_lock(), because that change was done while holding that same old
->sighand.siglock.

[PATCH] convert sighand_cache to use SLAB_DESTROY_BY_RCU

This patch borrows a clever Hugh's 'struct anon_vma' trick.

Without tasklist_lock held we can't trust task->sighand until we locked it
and re-checked that it is still the same.

But this means we don't need to defer 'kmem_cache_free(sighand)'.  We can
return the memory to slab immediately, all we need is to be sure that
sighand->siglock can't dissapear inside rcu protected section.

To do so we need to initialize ->siglock inside ctor function,
SLAB_DESTROY_BY_RCU does the rest.

[PATCH] pidhash: don't use zero pids

daemonize() calls set_special_pids(1,1), while init and kernel threads spawned
from init/main.c:init() run with 0,0 special pids.  This patch changes
INIT_SIGNALS() so that that they run with ->pgrp == ->session == 1 also.  This
patch relies on fact that swapper's pid == 1.

Now we have no hashed zero pids in pid_hash[].

User-space visibible change is that now /sbin/init runs with (1,1) special
pids and becomes a session leader.

Quoting Eric W. Biederman:
>
> daemonize consuming pids (1,1) then consumes pgrp 1.  So that when
> /sbin/init calls setsid() it thinks /sbin/init is a process group

Oleg Nesterov [Wed, 29 Mar 2006 00:11:07 +0000]
[PATCH] pidhash: don't count idle threads

fork_idle() does unhash_process() just after copy_process().  Contrary,
boot_cpu's idle thread explicitely registers itself for each pid_type with nr
= 0.

copy_process() already checks p->pid != 0 before process_counts++, I think we
can just skip attach_pid() calls and job control inits for idle threads and
kill unhash_process().  We don't need to cleanup ->proc_dentry in fork_idle()
because with this patch idle threads are never hashed in
kernel/pid.c:pid_hash[].

We don't need to hash pid == 0 in pidmap_init().  free_pidmap() is never
called with pid == 0 arg, so it will never be reused.  So it is still possible
to use pid == 0 in any PIDTYPE_xxx namespace from kernel/pid.c's POV.

However with this patch we don't hash pid == 0 for PIDTYPE_PID case.  We still
have have PIDTYPE_PGID/PIDTYPE_SID entries with pid == 0: /sbin/init and
kernel threads which don't call daemonize().

13 years ago[PATCH] pidhash: kill switch_exec_pids
Eric W. Biederman [Wed, 29 Mar 2006 00:11:03 +0000]
[PATCH] pidhash: kill switch_exec_pids

switch_exec_pids is only called from de_thread by way of exec, and it is
only called when we are exec'ing from a non thread group leader.

Currently switch_exec_pids gives the leader the pid of the thread and
unhashes and rehashes all of the process groups.  The leader is already in
the EXIT_DEAD state so no one cares about it's pids.  The only concern for
the leader is that __unhash_process called from release_task will function
correctly.  If we don't touch the leader at all we know that
__unhash_process will work fine so there is no need to touch the leader.

For the task becomming the thread group leader, we just need to give it the
pid of the old thread group leader, add it to the task list, and attach it
to the session and the process group of the thread group.

Currently de_thread is also adding the task to the task list which is just
silly.

Currently the only leader of __detach_pid besides detach_pid is
switch_exec_pids because of the ugly extra work that was being
performed.

So this patch removes switch_exec_pids because it is doing too much, it is
creating an unnecessary special case in pid.c, duing work duplicated in
de_thread, and generally obscuring what it is going on.

The necessary work is added to de_thread, and it seems to be a little
clearer there what is going on.

Oleg Nesterov [Wed, 29 Mar 2006 00:10:59 +0000]
[PATCH] simplify exec from init's subthread

I think it is enough to take tasklist_lock for reading while changing
child_reaper:

Reparenting needs write_lock(tasklist_lock)

Only one thread in a thread group can do exec()

sighand->siglock garantees that get_signal_to_deliver()
will not see a stale value of child_reaper.

This means that we can change child_reaper earlier, without calling
zap_other_threads() twice.

"child_reaper = current" is a NOOP when init does exec from main thread, we
don't care.

13 years ago[PATCH] exec: allow init to exec from any thread.
Eric W. Biederman [Wed, 29 Mar 2006 00:10:58 +0000]
[PATCH] exec: allow init to exec from any thread.

After looking at the problem of init calling exec some more I figured out
an easy way to make the code work.

The actual symptom without out this patch is that all threads will die
except pid == 1, and the thread calling exec.  The thread calling exec will
wait forever for pid == 1 to die.

Since pid == 1 does not install a handler for SIGKILL it will never die.

This modifies the tests for init from current->pid == 1 to the equivalent
current == child_reaper.  And then it causes exec in the ugly case to
modify child_reaper.

The only weird symptom is that you wind up with an init process that
doesn't have the oldest start time on the box.

13 years ago[INET]: Introduce tunnel4/tunnel6
Herbert Xu [Tue, 28 Mar 2006 09:12:13 +0000]
[INET]: Introduce tunnel4/tunnel6

Basically this patch moves the generic tunnel protocol stuff out of
xfrm4_tunnel/xfrm6_tunnel and moves it into the new files of tunnel4.c
and tunnel6 respectively.

The reason for this is that the problem that Hugo uncovered is only
the tip of the iceberg.  The real problem is that when we removed the
dependency of ipip on xfrm4_tunnel we didn't really consider the module
case at all.

For instance, as it is it's possible to build both ipip and xfrm4_tunnel
as modules and if the latter is loaded then ipip simply won't load.

After considering the alternatives I've decided that the best way out of
this is to restore the dependency of ipip on the non-xfrm-specific part
of xfrm4_tunnel.  This is acceptable IMHO because the intention of the
removal was really to be able to use ipip without the xfrm subsystem.
This is still preserved by this patch.

So now both ipip/xfrm4_tunnel depend on the new tunnel4.c which handles
the arbitration between the two.  The order of processing is determined
by a simple integer which ensures that ipip gets processed before
xfrm4_tunnel.

The situation for ICMP handling is a little bit more complicated since
we may not have enough information to determine who it's for.  It's not
a big deal at the moment since the xfrm ICMP handlers are basically
no-ops.  In future we can deal with this when we look at ICMP caching
in general.

The user-visible change to this is the removal of the TUNNEL Kconfig
prompts.  This makes sense because it can only be used through IPCOMP
as it stands.

The addition of the new modules shouldn't introduce any problems since
module dependency will cause them to be loaded.

Oh and I also turned some unnecessary pskb's in IPv6 related to this
patch to skb's.

contiguous with the most recently allocated chunk.  On a striped
filesystem, this will fill a stripe unit with inodes before allocating new
inodes in another stripe unit.

Fixes a regression from the recent "remove ->get_blocks() support"
change.  inode->i_blkbits should be used when making a get_block_t
request of a filesystem instead of dio->blkbits, as that does not
indicate the filesystem block size all the time (depends on request
alignment - see start of __blockdev_direct_IO).

Patch from Lennert Buytenhek

This patch adds support for the Intel ixp23xx series of CPUs.  The
ixp23xx is an XSC3 based CPU with 512K of L2 cache, a 64bit 66MHz PCI
interface, two DDR RAM interfaces, QDR RAM interfaces, two gigabit
MACs, two 10/100 MACs, expansion bus, four microengines, a Media and
Switch Fabric unit almost identical to the one on the ixp2400, two
xscale (8250ish) UARTs and a bunch of other stuff.

This patch adds the core ixp23xx support code, and support for the
ADI Engineering Roadrunner, Intel IXDP2351, and IP Fabrics Double
Espresso platforms.
