[PATCH] md: make sure the new 'sb_size' is set properly device added without pre-existing superblock.

There are two ways to add devices to an md/raid array.

  It can have superblock written to it, and then given to the md driver,
  which will read the superblock (the new way)

or

  md can be told (through SET_ARRAY_INFO) the shape of the array, and
  the told about individual drives, and md will create the required
  superblock (the old way).

The newly introduced sb_size was only set for drives being added the
new way, not the old ways.  Oops :-(

[PATCH] md: add write-intent-bitmap support to raid5

Most awkward part of this is delaying write requests until bitmap updates have
been flushed.

To achieve this, we have a sequence number (seq_flush) which is incremented
each time the raid5 is unplugged.

If the raid thread notices that this has changed, it flushes bitmap changes,
and assigned the value of seq_flush to seq_write.

When a write request arrives, it is given the number from seq_write, and that
write request may not complete until seq_flush is larger than the saved seq
number.

We have a new queue for storing stripes which are waiting for a bitmap flush
and an extra flag for stripes to record if the write was 'degraded' and so
should not clear the a bit in the bitmap.

[PATCH] Update PCI IOMEM allocation start

This fixes the problem with "Averatec 6240 pcmcia_socket0: unable to
apply power", which was due to the CardBus IOMEM register region being
allocated at an address that was actually inside the RAM window that had
been reserved for video frame-buffers in an UMA setup.

The BIOS _should_ have marked that region reserved in the e820 memory
descriptor tables, but did not.

It is fixed by rounding up the default starting address of PCI memory
allocations, so that we leave a bigger gap after the final known memory
location.  The amount of rounding depends on how big the unused memory
gap is that we can allocate IOMEM from.

Based on example code by Linus.

Miklos Szeredi [Fri, 9 Sep 2005 20:10:39 +0000]
[PATCH] FUSE: don't allow restarting of system calls

This patch removes ability to interrupt and restart operations while there
hasn't been any side-effect.

The reason: applications.  There are some apps it seems that generate
signals at a fast rate.  This means, that if the operation cannot make
enough progress between two signals, it will be restarted for ever.  This
bug actually manifested itself with 'krusader' trying to open a file for
writing under sshfs.  Thanks to Eduard Czimbalmos for the report.

The problem can be solved just by making open() uninterruptible, because in
this case it was the truncate operation that slowed down the progress.  But
it's better to solve this by simply not allowing interrupts at all (except
SIGKILL), because applications don't expect file operations to be
interruptible anyway.  As an added bonus the code is simplified somewhat.

contents from userspace to the kernel.

The patch adds three new operations (OPENDIR, READDIR, RELEASEDIR), which
have semantics and implementation exactly maching the respective file
operations (OPEN, READ, RELEASE).

This simplifies the directory reading code.  Also disk space is not

[PATCH] FUSE: tighten check for processes allowed access

This patch tightens the check for allowing processes to access non-privileged
mounts.  The rational is that the filesystem implementation can control the
behavior or get otherwise unavailable information of the filesystem user.  If
the filesystem user process has the same uid, gid, and is not suid or sgid
application, then access is safe.  Otherwise access is not allowed unless the
"allow_other" mount option is given (for which policy is controlled by the
userspace mount utility).

Thanks to everyone linux-fsdevel, especially Martin Mares who helped uncover
problems with the previous approach.

    - registers FUSE filesystem

 o fuse_i.h
    - private header file

Requirements
============

 The most important difference between orinary filesystems and FUSE is
 the fact, that the filesystem data/metadata is provided by a userspace
 process run with the privileges of the mount "owner" instead of the
 kernel, or some remote entity usually running with elevated
 privileges.

 The security implication of this is that a non-privileged user must
 not be able to use this capability to compromise the system.  Obvious
 requirements arising from this are:

  - mount owner should not be able to get elevated privileges with the
    help of the mounted filesystem

  - mount owner should not be able to induce undesired behavior in
    other users' or the super user's processes

  - mount owner should not get illegitimate access to information from
    other users' and the super user's processes

 These are currently ensured with the following constraints:

  1) mount is only allowed to directory or file which the mount owner
    can modify without limitation (write access + no sticky bit for
    directories)

  2) nosuid,nodev mount options are forced

  3) any process running with fsuid different from the owner is denied
     all access to the filesystem

 1) and 2) are ensured by the "fusermount" mount utility which is a
    setuid root application doing the actual mount operation.

 3) is ensured by a check in the permission() method in kernel

 I started thinking about doing 3) in a different way because Christoph
 H. made a big deal out of it, saying that FUSE is unacceptable into
 mainline in this form.

 The suggested use of private namespaces would be OK, but in their
 current form have many limitations that make their use impractical (as
 discussed in this thread).

 Suggested improvements that would address these limitations:

   - implement shared subtrees

   - allow a process to join an existing namespace (make namespaces
     first-class objects)

   - implement the namespace creation/joining in a PAM module

 With all that in place the check of owner against current->fsuid may
 be removed from the FUSE kernel module, without compromising the
 security requirements.

 Suid programs still interesting questions, since they get access even
 to the private namespace causing some information leak (exact
 order/timing of filesystem operations performed), giving some
 ptrace-like capabilities to unprivileged users.  BTW this problem is
 not strictly limited to the namespace approach, since suid programs
 setting fsuid and accessing users' files will succeed with the current
 approach too.

Antonino A. Daplas [Fri, 9 Sep 2005 20:09:58 +0000]
[PATCH] fbdev: Add VESA Coordinated Video Timings (CVT) support

The Coordinated Video Timings (CVT) is the latest standard approved by VESA
concerning video timings generation.  It addresses the limitation of GTF which
is designed mainly for CRT displays.  CRT's have a high blanking requirement
(as much as 25% of the horizontal frame length) which artificially increases
the pixelclock.  Digital displays, on the other hand, needs to conserve the
pixelclock as much as possible.  The GTF also does not take into account the
different aspect ratios in its calculation.

The new function added is fb_find_mode_cvt().  It is called by fb_find_mode()
if it recognizes a mode option string formatted for CVT.  The format is:

<xres>x<yres>[M][R][-<bpp>][<at-sign><refresh>][i][m]

The 'M' tells the function to calculate using CVT.  On it's own, it will
compute a timing for CRT displays at 60Hz.  If the 'R' is specified, 'reduced
blanking' computation will be used, best for flatpanels.  The 'i' and the 'm'
is for 'interlaced mode' and 'with margins' respectively.

To determine if CVT was used, check for dmesg for something like this:

CVT Mode - <pix>M<n>[-R], ie: .480M3-R  (800x600 reduced blanking)

where: pix - product of xres and yres, in MB
    M   - is a CVT mode
    n   - the aspect ratio (3 - 4:3; 4 - 5:4; 9 - 16:9, 15:9; A - 16:10)
    -R   - reduced blanking

[PATCH] framebuffer: bit_putcs() optimization for 8x* fonts

This trivial patch gives a performance boost to the framebuffer console

Constructing the bitmaps that are given to the bitblit functions of the
framebuffer drivers is time consuming.  Here we avoide a call to the slow
fb_pad_aligned_buffer().  The patch replaces that call with a simple but
much more efficient bytewise copy.

The kernel spends a significant time at this place if you use 8x* fonts.
Every pixel displayed on your screen is prepared here.

Some benchmark results:

Displaying a file of 2000 lines with 160 characters each takes 889 ms
system time using cyblafb on my system (I´m using a 1280x1024 video mode,
resulting in a 160x64 character console)

Displaying the same file with the enclosed patch applied to 2.6.13 only
takes 760 ms system time, saving 129 ms or 14.5%.

Font widths other than 8 are not affected.

The advantage and correctness of this patch should be obvious.

14 years ago[PATCH] framebuffer: new driver for cyberblade/i1 graphics core
Knut Petersen [Fri, 9 Sep 2005 20:04:56 +0000]
[PATCH] framebuffer: new driver for cyberblade/i1 graphics core

This is a framebuffer driver for the Cyberblade/i1 graphics core.

Currently tridenfb claims to support the cyberblade/i1 graphics core.  This
is of very limited truth.  Even vesafb is faster and provides more working
modes and a much better quality of the video signal.  There is a great
number of bugs in tridentfb ...  but most often it is impossible to decide
if these bugs are real bugs or if fixing them for the cyberblade/i1 core
would break support for one of the other supported chips.

Tridentfb seems to be unmaintained,and documentation for most of the
supported chips is not available.  So "fixing" cyberblade/i1 support inside
of tridentfb was not an option, it would have caused numerous
if(CYBERBLADEi1) else ...  cases and would have rendered the code to be
almost unmaintainable.

A first version of this driver was published on 2005-07-31.  A fix for a
bug reported by Jochen Hein was integrated as well as some changes
requested by Antonino A.  Daplas.

A message has been added to tridentfb to inform current users of tridentfb
to switch to cyblafb if the cyberblade/i1 graphics core is detected.

This patch is one logical change, but because of the included documentation
it is bigger than 70kb.  Therefore it is not sent to lkml and
linux-fbdev-devel,

- Fixed support for 320x240 STN panels (for embedded devices).

- Fixed many HDTV modes (525p, 750p, 1080i).

- Fixed PCI config register reading/writing to use proper kernel
  functions for this purpose.

- Fixed PCI ROM handling to use the kernel's proper functions.

- Removed lots of "typedef"s.

- Removed lots of code which was for X.org/XFree86 only.

- Fixed coding style in many places.

- Removed lots of 2.4 cruft.

- Reduced stack size by unifying two previously separate structs into
  one.

- Added new hooks for memory allocation (for DRM).  Now the driver can
  truly handle multiple cards, including memory management.

- Fixed numerous minor bugs.

After patching, building, installing, and booting a kernel, you should grep
for "PInS" in /var/log/messages.  You should see two messages in the log:

PInS data found at offset XXXXX
PInS memtype = X

On the GXT135p card I get "31168" and "5".  The first value is irrelevant,
but it's presence lets me know that the PInS data was actually found.  On a
GXT130p, the second value should be 3.  Since I don't have access to that
hardware, if someone can verify that, I will submit a follow-on patch that
rips out all the memtype parameter stuff.

Alexander Kern [Fri, 9 Sep 2005 20:04:40 +0000]
[PATCH] atyfb: Remove code that sets sync polarity unconditionally

Currently, atyfb has code that sets the hsync and vsync polarity based on the
current video mode, without letting the user override the settings.

Remove this particular code.  The sync polarities are set by the PROM, the
user or by the videomode.

14 years ago[PATCH] console: Fix buffer copy on vc resize
Antonino A. Daplas [Fri, 9 Sep 2005 20:04:39 +0000]
[PATCH] console: Fix buffer copy on vc resize

On a vc resize, the contents of the old screen buffer are transferred to the
new screenbuffer.  If the new screenbuffer is smaller than the old one, only
the contents from the bottom are copied to new.  If the contents of the old
buffer are located at the top, then the contents will not be copied to the new
buffer resulting in a blank screen.

This bug will happen only if the vc in question is not in the foreground.
Doing an fbset -a or con2fbmap will trigger this bug.

To fix this problem, base the start of the copy from the location of the
current cursor.  If the cursor is near the top of the buffer, copy the
contents at the top, and if the cursor is near the bottom of the buffer, then
copy the contents at the bottom.  In the unlikely case where the new row size
is greater than 2x smaller than the old one, and the cursor is in the middle,
copy 1/2 screenful from the top and bottom of the cursor position.
