Amit Shah [Thu, 2 Sep 2010 13:08:29 +0000]
virtio: console: Add reference counting for port struct

When a port got hot-unplugged, when a port was open, any file operation
after the unplugging resulted in a crash. This is fixed by ref-counting
the port structure, and releasing it only when the file is closed.

This splits the unplug operation in two parts: first marks the port
as unavailable, removes all the buffers in the vqs and removes the port
from the per-device list of ports. The second stage, invoked when all
references drop to zero, releases the chardev and frees all other memory.

Paul Gortmaker [Thu, 16 Sep 2010 00:14:53 +0000]
selinux: really fix dependency causing parallel compile failure.

While the previous change to the selinux Makefile reduced the window
significantly for this failure, it is still possible to see a compile
failure where cpp starts processing selinux files before the auto
generated flask.h file is completed.  This is easily reproduced by
adding the following temporary change to expose the issue everytime:

-      cmd_flask = scripts/selinux/genheaders/genheaders ...
+      cmd_flask = sleep 30 ; scripts/selinux/genheaders/genheaders ...

This failure happens because the creation of the object files in the ss
subdir also depends on flask.h.  So simply incorporate them into the
parent Makefile, as the ss/Makefile really doesn't do anything unique.

With this change, compiling of all selinux files is dependent on
completion of the header file generation, and this test case with
the "sleep 30" now confirms it is functioning as expected.

KaiGai Kohei [Tue, 14 Sep 2010 09:28:39 +0000]
selinux: fast status update interface (/selinux/status)

This patch provides a new /selinux/status entry which allows applications
read-only mmap(2).
This region reflects selinux_kernel_status structure in kernel space.
  struct selinux_kernel_status
  {
          u32     length;         /* length of this structure */
          u32     sequence;       /* sequence number of seqlock logic */
          u32     enforcing;      /* current setting of enforcing mode */
          u32     policyload;     /* times of policy reloaded */
          u32     deny_unknown;   /* current setting of deny_unknown */
  };

When userspace object manager caches access control decisions provided
by SELinux, it needs to invalidate the cache on policy reload and setenforce
to keep consistency.
However, the applications need to check the kernel state for each accesses
on userspace avc, or launch a background worker process.
In heuristic, frequency of invalidation is much less than frequency of
making access control decision, so it is annoying to invoke a system call
to check we don't need to invalidate the userspace cache.
If we can use a background worker thread, it allows to receive invalidation
messages from the kernel. But it requires us an invasive coding toward the
base application in some cases; E.g, when we provide a feature performing
with SELinux as a plugin module, it is unwelcome manner to launch its own
worker thread from the module.

If we could map /selinux/status to process memory space, application can
know updates of selinux status; policy reload or setenforce.

A typical application checks selinux_kernel_status::sequence when it tries
to reference userspace avc. If it was changed from the last time when it
checked userspace avc, it means something was updated in the kernel space.
Then, the application can reset userspace avc or update current enforcing
mode, without any system call invocations.
This sequence number is updated according to the seqlock logic, so we need
to wait for a while if it is odd number.

tomoyo: cleanup. don't store bogus pointer

If domain is NULL then &domain->list is a bogus address.  Let's leave
head->r.domain NULL instead of saving an unusable pointer.

This is just a cleanup.  The current code always checks head->r.eof
before dereferencing head->r.domain.

This factors out protocol and low-level storage parts of ceph into a

is mostly a matter of moving files around.  However, a few key pieces
of the interface change as well:

 - ceph_client becomes ceph_fs_client and ceph_client, where the latter
   captures the mon and osd clients, and the fs_client gets the mds client
   and file system specific pieces.
 - Mount option parsing and debugfs setup is correspondingly broken into
   two pieces.
 - The mon client gets a generic handler callback for otherwise unknown
   messages (mds map, in this case).
 - The basic supported/required feature bits can be expanded (and are by

virtio: console: Don't block entire guest if host doesn't read data

If the host is slow in reading data or doesn't read data at all,
blocking write calls not only blocked the program that called write()
but the entire guest itself.

To overcome this, let's not block till the host signals it has given
back the virtio ring element we passed it.  Instead, send the buffer to
the host and return to userspace.  This operation then becomes similar
to how non-blocking writes work, so let's use the existing code for this
path as well.

This code change also ensures blocking write calls do get blocked if
there's not enough room in the virtio ring as well as they don't return
-EAGAIN to userspace.

power_pmu_event_init uses event->ctx->task to see whether the
new event is a per-task event or a system-wide event, and thus
crashes since event->ctx is NULL at the point where
power_pmu_event_init gets called.

(The reason it needs to know whether it is a per-task event is
because there are some hardware events on Power systems which
only count when the processor is not idle, and there are some
fixed-function counters which count such events.  For example,
the "run cycles" event counts cycles when the processor is not
idle.  If the user asks to count cycles, we can use "run cycles"
if this is a per-task event, since the processor is running when
the task is running, by definition.  We can't use "run cycles"
if the user asks for "cycles" on a system-wide counter.)

Fortunately the information we need is in the
event->attach_state field, so we just use that instead.

10 years agoftrace: Remove recursion between recordmcount and scripts/mod/empty
Steven Rostedt [Mon, 18 Oct 2010 18:42:00 +0000]
ftrace: Remove recursion between recordmcount and scripts/mod/empty

When DYNAMIC_FTRACE is enabled and we use the C version of recordmcount,
all objects are run through the recordmcount program to create a
separate section that stores all the callers of mcount.

The build process has a special file: scripts/mod/empty.o. This is
built from empty.c which is literally an empty file (except for a
single comment). This file is used to find information about the target
elf format, like endianness and word size.

The problem comes up when we need to build recordmcount. The
build process requires that empty.o is built first. The build rules
for empty.o will try to execute recordmcount on the empty.o file.
We get an error that recordmcount does not exist.

To avoid this recursion, the build file will skip running recordmcount
if the file that it is building is script/mod/empty.o.

10 years agomxc_nand: do not depend on disabling the irq in the interrupt handler
Sascha Hauer [Mon, 18 Oct 2010 08:16:26 +0000]
mxc_nand: do not depend on disabling the irq in the interrupt handler

This patch reverts the driver to enabling/disabling the NFC interrupt
mask rather than enabling/disabling the system interrupt.  This cleans
up the driver so that it doesn't rely on interrupts being disabled
within the interrupt handler.

For i.MX21 we keep the current behaviour, that is calling
enable_irq/disable_irq_nosync to enable/disable interrupts.  This patch
is based on earlier work by John Ogness.
