13 years agoseq_file: more atomicity in traverse()
Alexey Dobriyan [Mon, 16 Jul 2007 06:40:39 +0000]
seq_file: more atomicity in traverse()

Original problem: in some circumstances seq_file interface can present
infinite proc file to the following script when normally said proc file is
finite:

while read line; do
[do something with $line]
done </proc/$FILE

bash, to implement such loop does essentially

read(0, buf, 128);
[find \n]
lseek(0, -difference, SEEK_CUR);

Consider, proc file prints list of objects each of them consists of many
lines, each line is shorter than 128 bytes.

Two objects in list, with ->index'es being 0 and 1.  Current one is 1, as
bash prints second object line by line.

Imagine first object being removed right before lseek().
traverse() will be called, because there is negative offset.
traverse() will reset ->index to 0 (!).
traverse() will call ->next() and get NULL in any usual iterate-over-list
code using list_for_each_entry_continue() and such. There is one object in
list now after all...
traverse() will return 0, lseek() will update file position and pretend
everything is OK.

So, what we have now: ->f_pos points to place where second object will be
printed, but ->index is 0.  seq_read() instead of returning EOF, will start
printing first line of first object every time it's called, until enough
objects are added to ->f_pos return in bounds.

Fix is to update ->index only after we're sure we saw enough objects down
the road.

13 years agoatmel_serial: fix break handling
Haavard Skinnemoen [Mon, 16 Jul 2007 06:40:36 +0000]
atmel_serial: fix break handling

The RXBRK field in the AT91/AT32 USART status register has the
following definition according to e.g. the AT32AP7000 data sheet:

    RXBRK: Break Received/End of Break
    0: No Break received or End of Break detected since the last RSTSTA.
    1: Break Received or End of Break detected since the last RSTSTA.

Thus, for each break, the USART sets the RXBRK bit twice. This patch
modifies the driver to report the break event to the serial core only
once by keeping track of whether a break condition is currently
active. The break_active flag is reset as soon as a character is
received, so even if we miss the start-of-break interrupt this should
do the right thing.

init: wait for asynchronously scanned block devices

Some buses (e.g.  USB and MMC) do their scanning of devices in the
background, causing a race between them and prepare_namespace().  In order
to be able to use these buses without an initrd, we now wait for the device
specified in root= to actually show up.

If the device never shows up than we will hang in an infinite loop.  In
order to not mess with setups that reboot on panic, the feature must be
turned on via the command line option "rootwait".

13 years agoO_CLOEXEC for SCM_RIGHTS
Ulrich Drepper [Mon, 16 Jul 2007 06:40:34 +0000]
O_CLOEXEC for SCM_RIGHTS

Part two in the O_CLOEXEC saga: adding support for file descriptors received
through Unix domain sockets.

The patch is once again pretty minimal, it introduces a new flag for recvmsg
and passes it just like the existing MSG_CMSG_COMPAT flag.  I think this bit
is not used otherwise but the networking people will know better.

This new flag is not recognized by recvfrom and recv.  These functions cannot
be used for that purpose and the asymmetry this introduces is not worse than
the already existing MSG_CMSG_COMPAT situations.

The patch must be applied on the patch which introduced O_CLOEXEC.  It has to
remove static from the new get_unused_fd_flags function but since scm.c cannot
live in a module the function still hasn't to be exported.

Here's a test program to make sure the code works.  It's so much longer than
the actual patch...

13 years agoIntroduce O_CLOEXEC
Ulrich Drepper [Mon, 16 Jul 2007 06:40:32 +0000]
Introduce O_CLOEXEC

The problem is as follows: in multi-threaded code (or more correctly: all
code using clone() with CLONE_FILES) we have a race when exec'ing.

   thread #1                       thread #2

   fd=open()

                                   fork + exec

  fcntl(fd,F_SETFD,FD_CLOEXEC)

In some applications this can happen frequently.  Take a web browser.  One
thread opens a file and another thread starts, say, an external PDF viewer.
 The result can even be a security issue if that open file descriptor
refers to a sensitive file and the external program can somehow be tricked
into using that descriptor.

Just adding O_CLOEXEC support to open() doesn't solve the whole set of
problems.  There are other ways to create file descriptors (socket,
epoll_create, Unix domain socket transfer, etc).  These can and should be
addressed separately though.  open() is such an easy case that it makes not
much sense putting the fix off.

The test program:

#include <errno.h>
#include <fcntl.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <unistd.h>

# define O_CLOEXEC 02000000

          return 1;

add printk.time option, deprecate 'time'

Allow printk_time to be enabled or disabled at boot time.  Previously it
could be enabled only, but not disabled.

Change printk_time from an int to a bool since that's what it is.  Make its
logical (exposed) name just be "time" (was "printk_time").

Note: Changes kernel boot option syntax from "time" to "printk.time=value".

Since printk_time is declared as a module_param, it can also be
changed at run-time by modifying
  /sys/module/printk/parameters/time
to a value of 1/Y/y to enabled it or 0/N/n to disable it.

Since printk_time is declared as a module_param, its value can also
be set at boot-time by using
  linux printk.time=<bool>

If the "time" boot option is used, print a message that it is deprecated
and will be removed.

Note its planned removal in feature-removal-schedule.txt.

13 years agofault-injection: add min-order parameter to fail_page_alloc
Akinobu Mita [Mon, 16 Jul 2007 06:40:23 +0000]
fault-injection: add min-order parameter to fail_page_alloc

Limiting smaller allocation failures by fault injection helps to find real
possible bugs.  Because higher order allocations are likely to fail and
zero-order allocations are not likely to fail.

This patch adds min-order parameter to fail_page_alloc.  It specifies the
minimum page allocation order to be injected failures.

core when they try to copy a file that's too large for the destination
filesystem (typically, > 4gb).  Apparently, some defunct standards required
SIGXFSZ to be sent in such circumstances, but SUS only requires/allows it
for when a written file exceeds the process's resource limits.  I'd like to
limit SIGXFSZs to the bare minimum required by SUS.

13 years agopercpu_counters(): use cpu notifiers
Andrew Morton [Mon, 16 Jul 2007 06:39:51 +0000]
percpu_counters(): use cpu notifiers

per-cpu counters presently must iterate over all possible CPUs in the
exhaustive percpu_counter_sum().

But it can be much better to only iterate over the presently-online CPUs.  To
do this, we must arrange for an offlined CPU's count to be spilled into the
counter's central count.

We can do this for all percpu_counters in the machine by linking them into a
single global list and walking that list at CPU_DEAD time.

(I hope.  Might have race windows in which the percpu_counter_sum() count is
inaccurate?)

cpu hotplug: fix ksoftirqd termination on cpu hotplug with naughty realtime process

Fix ksoftirqd termination on cpu hotplug with naughty real time process.

Assuming the following case:

 - Try to hot remove CPU2 from CPU1.
 - There is a real time process on CPU2, and that process doesn't sleep at all.
 - That rt process and ksoftirqd/2 is migrated to the CPU0

Then ksoftirqd/2 can't stop becasue that rt process runs everlastingly on
CPU0, and CPU1 waiting the ksoftirqd/2's termination hangs up.  To fix this
problem, set the priority of ksoftirqd/2 to max one before kthread_stop().

stop_machine_run() does its work on "kstopmachine" thread having max

Therefore, in the following case ...

  - There is a real time process which doesn't relinquish CPU time
    voluntary on CPU1

...  "kstopmachine" can't start to run and the CPU on which

    sched_setscheduler() before waking up that thread.

changed the monotonic time so that it no longer jumps after resume, but it's
not possible to use it for boot time and process start time calculations then.
 Also, the uptime no longer increases during suspend.

I add a variable to track the wall_to_monotonic changes, a function to get the
real boot time and a function to get the boot based time from the monotonic
one.

fix jvc cdrom drive lockup

Before calling init_hwif_default, ide_unregister gets lock ide_lock and
disables irq.  init_hwif_default calls ide_default_io_base which calls
pci_get_device and later pci_get_subsys tries to apply for semaphore
pci_bus_sem and goes to sleep.

Mostly, pci_get_device should be called when irq is turned on.

ide_default_io_base just needs find if list pci_devices is empty.

13 years agoFix rmmod/read/write races in /proc entries
Alexey Dobriyan [Mon, 16 Jul 2007 06:39:00 +0000]
Fix rmmod/read/write races in /proc entries

Fix following races:
===========================================
1. Write via ->write_proc sleeps in copy_from_user(). Module disappears
   meanwhile. Or, more generically, system call done on /proc file, method
   supplied by module is called, module dissapeares meanwhile.

   pde = create_proc_entry()
   if (!pde)
return -ENOMEM;
   pde->write_proc = ...
open
write
copy_from_user
   pde = create_proc_entry();
   if (!pde) {
remove_proc_entry();
return -ENOMEM;
/* module unloaded */
   }
*boom*
==========================================
2. bogo-revoke aka proc_kill_inodes()

  remove_proc_entry vfs_read
  proc_kill_inodes [check ->f_op validness]
[check ->f_op->read validness]
[verify_area, security permissions checks]
->f_op = NULL;
if (file->f_op->read)
/* ->f_op dereference, boom */

NOTE, NOTE, NOTE: file_operations are proxied for regular files only. Let's
see how this scheme behaves, then extend if needed for directories.
Directories creators in /proc only set ->owner for them, so proxying for
directories may be unneeded.

NOTE, NOTE, NOTE: methods being proxied are ->llseek, ->read, ->write,
->poll, ->unlocked_ioctl, ->ioctl, ->compat_ioctl, ->open, ->release.
If your in-tree module uses something else, yell on me. Full audit pending.

13 years agouml: limit request size on COWed devices
Jeff Dike [Mon, 16 Jul 2007 06:38:58 +0000]
uml: limit request size on COWed devices

COWed devices can't handle more than 32 (64 on x86_64) sectors in one request
due to the size of the bitmap being carried around in the io_thread_req.

Enforce that by telling the block layer not to put too many sectors in
requests to COWed devices.

13 years agouml: Eliminate kernel allocator wrappers
Jeff Dike [Mon, 16 Jul 2007 06:38:56 +0000]
uml: Eliminate kernel allocator wrappers

UML had two wrapper procedures for kmalloc, um_kmalloc and um_kmalloc_atomic
because the flag constants weren't available in userspace code.
kern_constants.h had made kernel constants available for a long time, so there
is no need for these wrappers any more.  Rather, userspace code calls kmalloc
directly with the userspace versions of the gfp flags.

kmalloc isn't a real procedure, so I had to essentially copy the inline
wrapper around __kmalloc.

vmalloc also had its own wrapper for no good reason.  This is now gone.

uml: simplify helper stack handling

run_helper and run_helper_thread had arguments which were the same in all
callers.  run_helper's stack_out was always NULL and run_helper_thread's
stack_order was always 0.  These are now gone, and the constants folded
into the code.

Also fixed leaks of the helper stack in the AIO and SIGIO code.

13 years agouml: SIGIO support cleanup
Jeff Dike [Mon, 16 Jul 2007 06:38:55 +0000]
uml: SIGIO support cleanup

Cleanup of the SIGWINCH support.

Some code and comment reformatting.

The stack used for SIGWINCH threads was leaked.  This is now fixed by storing
it with the pid and other information, and freeing it when the thread is
killed.

If something goes wrong with a WIGWINCH thread, and this is discovered in the
interrupt handler, the winch record would leak.  It is now freed, except that
the IRQ isn't freed.  This is hard to do from interrupt context.  This has the
side-effect that the IRQ system maintains a reference to the freed structure,
but that shouldn't cause a problem since the descriptor is disabled.

register_winch_irq is now much better about cleaning up after an
initialization failure.

uml: handle errors on opening host side of consoles

If the host side of a console can't be opened, this will now produce visible
error messages.

enable_chan now returns a status and this is passed up to con_open and
ssl_open, which will complain if anything went wrong.

The default host device for the serial line driver is now a pts device rather
than a pty device since lots of hosts have LEGACY_PTYS disabled.  This had
always been failing on such hosts, but silently.
