kbuild: sparse needs CF not CHECKFLAGS

Documentation/sparse.txt tells to use:

vmlinux.lds: move __attribute__((__cold__)) functions back into final .text section

Due to the addition of __attribute__((__cold__)) to a few symbols
without adjusting the linker scripts, those symbols currently may end
up outside the [_stext,_etext) range, as they get placed in
.text.unlikely by (at least) gcc 4.3.0. This may confuse code not only
outside of the kernel, symbol_put_addr()'s BUG() could also trigger.
Hence we need to add .text.unlikely (and for future uses of

kbuild: optimize headers_* targets

Move the core functionality of headers_install
and headers_check to two small perl scripts.
The makefile is adapted to use the perl scrip and
changed to operate on all files in a directory.
So if one file is changed then all files in the
directory is processed.

perl were chosen for the helper scripts because this
is pure text processing which perl is good at and
especially the headers_check.pl script are expected to
see changes / new checks implmented.

The speed is ~300% faster on this box.
And the output generated to the screen is now down to
two lines per directory (one for install, one for check)
so it is easier to scroll back after a kernel build.

The perl scripts has been brought to sanity by patient

So make headers_check_all is now broken by this commit.

In addition:

o add a simpler way to detect if an arch support
  exporting header files.

o add 'set -e;' so we error out early if
  make headers_check_all fails.

o add sparc64 and cris to arch we do not process
  in make headers_*_all because:

    sparc64 - use sparc to export headers
    cris    - is know seriously broken

The channel DIMM label does not seem to be used much in the edac code.

funny when cat'ing it.  Here we just add the trailing newline to the sysfs

[Doug Thompson note: the DIMM label is one of the primary uses of EDAC.
User space daemon scripts, edac-utils@sourceforge, populate the DIMM label
fields, via /sys/devices/system/edac attributes, with the silk screen
labels of the motherboard in use.  dmidecode access BIOS tables, but BIOS
tables are well known to be incorrect and useless in these respects.
edac-utils will strip off any newlines before its use of the output, when
displaying DIMM slot silk screen labels.

edac: core fix workq timer

When updating the edac_mc_poll_msec module parameter from the sysfs
/sys/module/edac_core/parameters/edac_mc_poll_msec file, we don't update
the workq timers.  So that, if we move from a big poll time to a small
one, the small one won't take effect until the big one has timed out.

Here we provide a new module parameter set method to call out to the
update routine.  This brings the /sys/module/edac_core/parameters
functionality up to that provided by the /sys/drivers/system/edac/mc sysfs
module parameter files so that we can remove them or at least link to the
/sys/module files...

edac: core fix to use dynamic kobject

Static kobjects are not supported in linux kernel.  Convert the
edac_pci_top_main_kobj from static to dynamic.  This avoids the double
free of the edac_pci_top_main_kobj.name that we see on module reload of
the e752x edac driver (and probably others as well).

In addition Greg KH <greg@kroah.com> has pointed out that this code may be
cleaned up significantly.  I will look at that as a follow-on patch, for
now, I just want the minimum fix to get this double-free oops bug
squashed...

Many thanks to Greg KH for his patience in showing me what the
Documentation/kobject.txt already said (oops)...

not affect functionality, but which should help make the code more
maintainable.

In particular, we now:

* convert all #define's w/ a parameter to static inlines
* use 1UL rather than 1ULL when calculating an unsigned long
* use pci_disable_device

11 years agoedac: i5100 new intel chipset driver
Arthur Jones [Fri, 25 Jul 2008 08:49:04 +0000]
edac: i5100 new intel chipset driver

Preliminary support for the Intel 5100 MCH.  CE and UE errors are reported
along with the current DIMM label information and other memory parameters.

Reasons why this is preliminary:

1) This chip has 2 independent memory controllers which, for best
   perforance, use interleaved accesses to the DDR2 memory.  This
   architecture does not map very well to the current edac data structures
   which depend on symmetric channel access to the interleaved data.
   Without core changes, the best I could do for now is to map both memory
   controllers to different csrows (first all ranks of controller 0, then
   all ranks of controller 1).  Someone much more familiar with the edac
   core than I will probably need to come up with a more general data
   structure to handle the interleaving and de-interleaving of the two
   memory controllers.

2) I have not yet tackled the de-interleaving of the rank/controller
   address space into the physical address space of the CPU.  There is
   nothing fundamentally missing, it is just ending up to be a lot of
   code, and I'd rather keep it separate for now, esp since it doesn't
   work yet...

3) The code depends on a particular i5100 chip select to DIMM mainboard
   chip select mapping.  This mapping seems obvious to me in order to
   support dual and single ranked memory, but it is not unique and DIMM
   labels could be wrong on other mainboards.  There is no way to query
   this mapping that I know of.

4) The code requires that the i5100 is in 32GB mode.  Only 4 ranks per
   controller, 2 ranks per DIMM are supported.  I do not have hardware
   (nor do I expect to have hardware anytime soon) for the 48GB (6 ranks
   per controller) mode.

5) The serial presence detect code should be broken out into a "real"
   i2c driver so that decode-dimms.pl can work.

fuse: add export operations

Implement export_operations, to allow fuse filesystems to be exported to
NFS.  This feature has been in the out-of-tree fuse module, and is widely
used and tested.

It has not been originally merged into mainline, because doing the NFS
export in userspace was thought to be a cleaner and more efficient way of
doing it, than through the kernel.

While that is true, it would also have involved a lot of duplicated effort
at reimplementing NFS exporting (all the different versions of the
protocol).  This effort was unfortunately not undertaken by anyone, so we
are left with doing it the easy but less efficient way.

If this feature goes in, the out-of-tree fuse module can go away,
which would have several advantages:

  - not having to maintain two versions
  - less confusion for users
  - no bugs due to kernel API changes

Comment from hch:
 - Use the same fh_type values as XFS, since we use the same fh encoding.

locks: add special return value for asynchronous locks

Use a special error value FILE_LOCK_DEFERRED to mean that a locking
operation returned asynchronously.  This is returned by

  posix_lock_file() for sleeping locks to mean that the lock has been
  queued on the block list, and will be woken up when it might become
  available and needs to be retried (either fl_lmops->fl_notify() is
  called or fl_wait is woken up).

  f_op->lock() to mean either the above, or that the filesystem will
  call back with fl_lmops->fl_grant() when the result of the locking
  operation is known.  The filesystem can do this for sleeping as well
  as non-sleeping locks.

This is to make sure, that return values of -EAGAIN and -EINPROGRESS by
filesystems are not mistaken to mean an asynchronous locking.

This also makes error handling in fs/locks.c and lockd/svclock.c slightly
cleaner.

tsacct: fix bacct_add_tsk()'s use of do_div()

Fix bacct_add_tsk()'s use of do_div() on an s64 by making ac_etime a u64
instead and dividing that.

Possibly this should be guarded lest the interval calculation turn up
negative, but the possible negativity of the result of the division is
cast away, and it shouldn't end up negative anyway.

This was introduced by patch f3cef7a99469afc159fec3a61b42dc7ca5b6824f.

11 years agotask IO accounting: provide distinct tgid/tid I/O statistics
Andrea Righi [Fri, 25 Jul 2008 08:48:49 +0000]
task IO accounting: provide distinct tgid/tid I/O statistics

Report per-thread I/O statistics in /proc/pid/task/tid/io and aggregate
parent I/O statistics in /proc/pid/io.  This approach follows the same
model used to account per-process and per-thread CPU times.

As a practial application, this allows for example to quickly find the top
I/O consumer when a process spawns many child threads that perform the
actual I/O work, because the aggregated I/O statistics can always be found
in /proc/pid/io.

[ Oleg Nesterov points out that we should check that the task is still
  alive before we iterate over the threads, but also says that we can do
  that fixup on top of this later.  - Linus ]

11 years agobsdacct: rename acct_gbls to bsd_acct_struct
Pavel Emelyanov [Fri, 25 Jul 2008 08:48:42 +0000]
bsdacct: rename acct_gbls to bsd_acct_struct

After I fixed access to task->tgid in kernel/acct.c, Oleg pointed out some
bad side effects with this accounting vs pid namespaces interaction.  I.e.
 when some task in pid namespace sets this accounting up, this blocks all
the others from doing the same.  Restricting this to init namespace only
could help, but didn't look a graceful solution.

So here is the approach to make this accounting work with pid namespaces
properly.

The idea is simple - when a task dies it accounts itself in each namespace
it is visible from and which set the accounting up.

For example here are the commands run and the output of lastcomm from init
and sub namespaces:

init_ns# accton pacct
 sub_ns# accton pacct (this is a different file - sub ns is run in
                       a chroot-ed environment)
init_ns# cat /dev/null
 sub_ns# ls /dev/null
init_ns# accton
 sub_ns# accton

 sub_ns#  lastcomm -f pacct
ls                      0        [136,0]    0.00 secs Thu May 15 10:30
accton                  0        [136,0]    0.00 secs Thu May 15 10:30

init_ns# lastcomm -f pacct
accton                  root     pts/0      0.00 secs Thu May 15 14:30 << got from sub
cat                     root     pts/1      0.00 secs Thu May 15 14:30
ls                      root     pts/0      0.00 secs Thu May 15 14:30 << got from sub
accton                  root     pts/1      0.00 secs Thu May 15 14:30

That was the summary, the details are in patches.

This patch:

It will be visible in pid_namespace.h file, so fix its name to look better
outside the acct.c file.

Extend the permission check for networking sysctl's to allow modification
when current process has CAP_NET_ADMIN capability and is not root.  This
version uses the until now unused permissions hook to override the mode
value for /proc/sys/net if accessed by a user with capabilities.

Found while working with Quagga.  It is impossible to turn forwarding
on/off through the command interface because Quagga uses secure coding
practice of dropping privledges during initialization and only raising via
capabilities when necessary.  Since the dameon has reset real/effective

11 years agomove proc_kmsg_operations to fs/proc/internal.h
Adrian Bunk [Fri, 25 Jul 2008 08:48:28 +0000]
move proc_kmsg_operations to fs/proc/internal.h

This patch moves the extern of struct proc_kmsg_operations to
fs/proc/internal.h and adds an #include "internal.h" to fs/proc/kmsg.c
so that the latter sees the former.
