[PATCH] s390: setup.c cleanup + build fix

Cleanup & fix 31 bit compilation:

CC arch/s390/kernel/setup.o
arch/s390/kernel/setup.c:83: error: initializer element is not computable at
                                    load time

                                    'code_resource.start')
Not sure which patch in the -mm tree breaks this, but since this can be
considered a cleanup it can be merged anyway.

KaiGai Kohei [Sun, 25 Jun 2006 12:49:26 +0000]
[PATCH] pacct: none-delayed process accounting accumulation

In current 2.6.17 implementation, signal_struct refered from task_struct is
used for per-process data structure.  The pacct facility also uses it as a
per-process data structure to store stime, utime, minflt, majflt.  But those
members are saved in __exit_signal().  It's too late.

For example, if some threads exits at same time, pacct facility has a
possibility to drop accountings for a part of those threads.  (see, the
following 'The results of original 2.6.17 kernel') I think accounting
information should be completely collected into the per-process data structure
before writing out an accounting record.

This patch fixes this matter.  Accumulation of stime, utime, minflt and majflt
are done before generating accounting record.

13 years ago[PATCH] pacct: avoidance to refer the last thread as a representation of the process
KaiGai Kohei [Sun, 25 Jun 2006 12:49:25 +0000]
[PATCH] pacct: avoidance to refer the last thread as a representation of the process

When pacct facility generate an 'ac_flag' field in accounting record, it
refers a task_struct of the thread which died last in the process.  But any
other task_structs are ignored.

Therefore, pacct facility drops ASU flag even if root-privilege operations are
used by any other threads except the last one.  In addition, AFORK flag is
always set when the thread of group-leader didn't die last, although this
process has called execve() after fork().

We have a same matter in ac_exitcode.  The recorded ac_exitcode is an exit
code of the last thread in the process.  There is a possibility this exitcode
is not the group leader's one.

KaiGai Kohei [Sun, 25 Jun 2006 12:49:24 +0000]
[PATCH] pacct: add pacct_struct to fix some pacct bugs.

The pacct facility need an i/o operation when an accounting record is
generated.  There is a possibility to wake OOM killer up.  If OOM killer is
activated, it kills some processes to make them release process memory
regions.

But acct_process() is called in the killed processes context before calling
exit_mm(), so those processes cannot release own memory.  In the results, any
processes stop in this point and it finally cause a system stall.

Jeremy Fitzhardinge [Sun, 25 Jun 2006 12:49:17 +0000]
[PATCH] Fix bounds check in vsnprintf, to allow for a 0 size and NULL buffer

This change allows callers to use a 0-byte buffer and a NULL buffer pointer
with vsnprintf, so it can be used to determine how large the resulting
formatted string will be.

Previously the code effectively treated a size of 0 as a size of 4G (on
32-bit systems), with other checks preventing it from actually trying to
emit the string - but the terminal \0 would still be written, which would
crash if the buffer is NULL.

This change changes the boundary check so that 'end' points to the putative
location of the terminal '\0', which is only written if size > 0.

vsnprintf still allows the buffer size to be set very large, to allow
unbounded buffer sizes (to implement sprintf, etc).

Ulrich Drepper [Sun, 25 Jun 2006 12:49:11 +0000]
[PATCH] Implement AT_SYMLINK_FOLLOW flag for linkat

When the linkat() syscall was added the flag parameter was added in the
last minute but it wasn't used so far.  The following patch should change
that.  My tests show that this is all that's needed.

If OLDNAME is a symlink setting the flag causes linkat to follow the
symlink and create a hardlink with the target.  This is actually the
behavior POSIX demands for link() as well but Linux wisely does not do
this.  With this flag (which will most likely be in the next POSIX
revision) the programmer can choose the behavior, defaulting to the safe
variant.  As a side effect it is now possible to implement a
POSIX-compliant link(2) function for those who are interested.

  touch file
  ln -s file symlink

  linkat(fd, "symlink", fd, "newlink", 0)
    -> newlink is hardlink of symlink

  linkat(fd, "symlink", fd, "newlink", AT_SYMLINK_FOLLOW)
    -> newlink is hardlink of file

The value of AT_SYMLINK_FOLLOW is determined by the definition we already
use in glibc.

When the verbose (-v) option is used with scripts/kernel-doc, this option
reports when the kernel-doc format is malformed and apparently contains
function description lines before function parameters.  In these cases, the

that file (posted to the linux-mm mailing list Mon.  2006-June-12).

function description to be more than one line long.  This patch is both a

VFS uses current->files pointer as lock owner ID, and it wouldn't be
prudent to expose this value to userspace.  So scramble it with XTEA using
a per connection random key, known only to the kernel.  Only one direction
needs to be implemented, since the ID is never sent in the reverse
direction.

The XTEA algorithm is implemented inline since it's simple enough to do so,
and this adds less complexity than if the crypto API were used.

Thanks to Jesper Juhl for the idea.

Don't put requests into the background when a fatal interrupt occurs while the
request is in userspace.  This removes a major wart from the implementation.

Backgrounding of requests was introduced to allow breaking of deadlocks.
However now the same can be achieved by aborting the filesystem through the
'abort' sysfs attribute.

This is a change in the interface, but should not cause problems, since these
kinds of deadlocks never happen during normal operation.

In this case dentrys created during a lookup for which a mount fails or has

[PATCH] readahead: backoff on I/O error

Backoff readahead size exponentially on I/O error.

Michael Tokarev <mjt@tls.msk.ru> described the problem as:

[QUOTE]
Suppose there's a CD-rom with a scratch/etc, one sector is unreadable.
In order to "fix" it, one have to read it and write to another CD-rom,
or something.. or just ignore the error (if it's just a skip in a video
stream).  Let's assume the unreadable block is number U.

But current behavior is just insane.  An application requests block
number N, which is before U. Kernel tries to read-ahead blocks N..U.
Cdrom drive tries to read it, re-read it.. for some time.  Finally,
when all the N..U-1 blocks are read, kernel returns block number N
(as requested) to an application, successefully.

Now an app requests block number N+1, and kernel tries to read
blocks N+1..U+1.  Retrying again as in previous step.

And so on, up to when an app requests block number U-1.  And when,
finally, it requests block U, it receives read error.

So, kernel currentry tries to re-read the same failing block as
many times as the current readahead value (256 (times?) by default).

This whole process already killed my cdrom drive (I posted about it
to LKML several months ago) - literally, the drive has fried, and
does not work anymore.  Ofcourse that problem was a bug in firmware
(or whatever) of the drive *too*, but.. main problem with that is
current readahead logic as described above.

13 years ago[PATCH] ftruncate does not always update m/ctime
Peter Staubach [Sun, 25 Jun 2006 12:48:36 +0000]
[PATCH] ftruncate does not always update m/ctime

In the course of trying to track down a bug where a file mtime was not
being updated correctly, it was discovered that the m/ctime updates were
not quite being handled correctly for ftruncate() calls.

Quoth SUSv3:

open(2):

        If O_TRUNC is set and the file did previously exist, upon
        successful completion, open() shall mark for update the st_ctime
        and st_mtime fields of the file.

truncate(2):

        Upon successful completion, if the file size is changed, this
        function shall mark for update the st_ctime and st_mtime fields
        of the file, and the S_ISUID and S_ISGID bits of the file mode
        may be cleared.

ftruncate(2):

        Upon successful completion, if fildes refers to a regular file,
        the ftruncate() function shall mark for update the st_ctime and
        st_mtime fields of the file and the S_ISUID and S_ISGID bits of
        the file mode may be cleared. If the ftruncate() function is
        unsuccessful, the file is unaffected.

The open(O_TRUNC) and truncate cases were being handled correctly, but the
ftruncate case was being handled like the truncate case.  The semantics of
truncate and ftruncate don't quite match, so ftruncate needs to be handled
slightly differently.

The attached patch addresses this issue for ftruncate(2).

My thanx to Stephen Tweedie and Trond Myklebust for their help in
understanding the situation and semantics.

13 years ago[PATCH] N32 sigset and __COMPAT_ENDIAN_SWAP__
akpm@osdl.org [Sun, 25 Jun 2006 12:48:35 +0000]
[PATCH] N32 sigset and __COMPAT_ENDIAN_SWAP__

I'm testing glibc on MIPS64, little-endian, N32, O32 and N64 multilibs.

Among the NPTL test failures seen are some arising from sigsuspend problems
for N32: it blocks the wrong signals, so SIGCANCEL (SIGRTMIN) is blocked
despite glibc's carefully excluding it from sets of signals to block.
Specifically, testing suggests it blocks signal N^32 instead of signal N,
so (in the example tested) blocking SIGUSR1 (17) blocks signal 49 instead.

glibc's sigset_t uses an array of unsigned long, as does the kernel.
In both cases, signal N+1 is represented as
(1UL << (N % (8 * sizeof (unsigned long)))) in word number
(N / (8 * sizeof (unsigned long))).

Thus the N32 glibc uses an array of 32-bit words and the N64 kernel uses an
array of 64-bit words.  For little-endian, the layout is the same, with
signals 1-32 in the first 4 bytes, signals 33-64 in the second, etc.; for
big-endian, userspace has that layout while in the kernel each 8 bytes have
the two halves swapped from the userspace layout.

The N32 sigsuspend syscall uses sigset_from_compat to convert the userspace
sigset to kernel format.  If __COMPAT_ENDIAN_SWAP__ is *not* set, this uses
logic of the form

  set->sig[0] = compat->sig[0] | (((long)compat->sig[1]) << 32 )

to convert the userspace sigset to a kernel one.  This looks correct to me
for both big and little endian, given that in userspace compat->sig[1] will
represent signals 33-64, and so will the high 32 bits of set->sig[0] in the
kernel.  If however __COMPAT_ENDIAN_SWAP__ *is* set, as it is for
__MIPSEL__, it uses

  set->sig[0] = compat->sig[1] | (((long)compat->sig[0]) << 32 );

which seems incorrect for both big and little endian, and would
explain the observed symptoms.

This code is the only use of __COMPAT_ENDIAN_SWAP__, so if incorrect
then that macro serves no purpose, in which case something like the
following patch would seem appropriate to remove it.

[PATCH] checkstack: print module names

Finding "init_module" high stack usage problems is challenging when there
are over 1600 "init_module" functions in the kernel tree, so make
checkstack.pl print out the filename where the stack usage occurs.  This is
useful for code built as loadable modules.

For built-in code, it just prints the kernel image file name, like
"vmlinux".  Examples:

(before patch:)
0x0000000d callback: 1928
0xffffffff81678c09 huft_build: 1560
0x0018 init_module: 1512

(after patch:)
0x0000000d callback [divacapi]: 1928
0xffffffff81678c09 huft_build [vmlinux]: 1560
0x0018 init_module [hdaps]: 1512

Also change one if-series to use elsif to cut down on unneeded tests.

The v3020 RTC is designed to be connected on a bus using only one data bit.
 Since any data bit may be used, it is necessary to specify this to the

Import genrtc's RTC UIE emulation (CONFIG_GEN_RTC_X) to rtc-dev driver with
slight adjustments/refinements.  This makes UIE-less rtc drivers work
better with programs doing read/poll on /dev/rtc, such as hwclock.  This
emulation should not harm rtc drivers with UIE support, since
rtc_dev_ioctl() calls underlaying rtc driver's ioctl() first.

[PATCH] "RTC-framework" driver for DS1307 and similar RTC chips

This is an "RTC-framework" driver for DS1307 and similar RTC chips,

It should be a full replacement for the existing ds1337.c driver (using the
older RTC glue), giving a net increase in the number of RTC chips that work
out-of-the-box.  There's a whole cluster of RTCs that are very similar, but
the 1337 driver was a bit too picky to work with most of them.

Still no support for RTC alarm IRQs (on chips that support them).

[PATCH] printk time parameter

Currently, enabling/disabling printk timestamps is only possible through
reboot (bootparam) or recompile.  I normally do not run with timestamps
(since syslog handles that in a good manner), but for measuring small
kernel delays (e.g.  irq probing - see parport thread) I needed subsecond
precision, but then again, just for some minutes rather than all kernel
messages to come.  The following patch adds a module_param() with which the
timestamps can be en-/disabled in a live system through
/sys/modules/printk/parameters/printk_time.

13 years ago[PATCH] epoll: use unlocked wqueue operations
Davide Libenzi [Sun, 25 Jun 2006 12:48:14 +0000]
[PATCH] epoll: use unlocked wqueue operations

A few days ago Arjan signaled a lockdep red flag on epoll locks, and
precisely between the epoll's device structure lock (->lock) and the wait
queue head lock (->lock).

Like I explained in another email, and directly to Arjan, this can't happen
in reality because of the explicit check at eventpoll.c:592, that does not
allow to drop an epoll fd inside the same epoll fd.  Since lockdep is
working on per-structure locks, it will never be able to know of policies
enforced in other parts of the code.

It was decided time ago of having the ability to drop epoll fds inside
other epoll fds, that triggers a very trick wakeup operations (due to
possibly reentrant callback-driven wakeups) handled by the
ep_poll_safewake() function.  While looking again at the code though, I
noticed that all the operations done on the epoll's main structure wait
queue head (->wq) are already protected by the epoll lock (->lock), so that
locked-style functions can be used to manipulate the ->wq member.  This
makes both a lock-acquire save, and lockdep happy.

Running totalmess on my dual opteron for a while did not reveal any problem
so far:
