coda: remove CODA_FS_OLD_API

While fixing CONFIG_ leakages to the userspace kernel headers I ran into
CODA_FS_OLD_API.

After five years, are there still people using the old API left?
Especially considering that you have to choose at compile time which API
to support in the kernel (and distributions tend to offer the new API for
some time).

Jan: "The old API can definitely go.  Around the time the new
      interface went in there were some non-Coda userspace file system
      implementations that took a while longer to convert to the new API,
      but by now they all switched to the new interface or in some cases
      to a FUSE-based solution."

isofs: fix minor filesystem corruption

Some iso9660 images contain files with rockridge data that is either
incorrect or incompletely parsed.  Prior to commit
f2966632a134e865db3c819346a1dc7d96e05309 ("[PATCH] rock: handle directory
overflows") (included with kernel 2.6.13) the kernel ignored the rockridge
data for these files, while still allowing the files to be accessed under
their non-rockridge names.  That commit inadvertently changed things so
that files with invalid rockridge data could not be accessed at all.  (I
ran across the problem when comparing some old CDs with hard disk copies I
had made long ago under kernel 2.4: a few of the files on the hard disk
copies were no longer visible on the CDs.)

This change reverts to the pre-2.6.13 behavior.

ext3: validate directory entry data before use

ext3_dx_find_entry uses ext3_next_entry without verifying that the entry
is valid.  If its rec_len == 0 this causes an infinite loop.  Refactor the
loop to check the validity of entries before checking whether they match
and moving onto the next one.

There are other uses of ext3_next_entry in this file which also look

Hidehiro Kawai [Fri, 25 Jul 2008 08:46:30 +0000]
jbd: don't abort if flushing file data failed

In ordered mode, the current jbd aborts the journal if a file data buffer
has an error.  But this behavior is unintended, and we found that it has
been adopted accidentally.

This patch undoes it and just calls printk() instead of aborting the
journal.  Additionally, set AS_EIO into the address_space object of the
failed buffer which is submitted by journal_do_submit_data() so that
fsync() can get -EIO.

Missing error checkings are also added to inform errors on file data
buffers to the user.  The following buffers are targeted.

  (a) the buffer which has already been written out by pdflush
  (b) the buffer which has been unlocked before scanned in the

11 years agojbd: positively dispose the unmapped data buffers in journal_commit_transaction()
Toshiyuki Okajima [Fri, 25 Jul 2008 08:46:29 +0000]
jbd: positively dispose the unmapped data buffers in journal_commit_transaction()

After ext3-ordered files are truncated, there is a possibility that the
pages which cannot be estimated still remain.  Remaining pages can be
released when the system has really few memory.  So, it is not memory
leakage.  But the resource management software etc.  may not work
correctly.

It is possible that journal_unmap_buffer() cannot release the buffers, and
the pages to which they belong because they are attached to a commiting
transaction and journal_unmap_buffer() cannot release them.  To release
such the buffers and the pages later, journal_unmap_buffer() leaves it to
journal_commit_transaction().  (journal_unmap_buffer() puts the mark
'BH_Freed' to the buffers so that journal_commit_transaction() can
identify whether they can be released or not.)

In the journalled mode and the writeback mode, jbd does with only metadata
buffers.  But in the ordered mode, jbd does with metadata buffers and also
data buffers.

Actually, journal_commit_transaction() releases only the metadata buffers
of which release is demanded by journal_unmap_buffer(), and also releases
the pages to which they belong if possible.

As a result, the data buffers of which release is demanded by
journal_unmap_buffer() remain after a transaction commits.  And also the
pages to which they belong remain.

Such the remained pages don't have mapping any longer.  Due to this fact,
there is a possibility that the pages which cannot be estimated remain.

The metadata buffers marked 'BH_Freed' and the pages to which
they belong can be released at 'JBD: commit phase 7'.

Therefore, by applying the same code into 'JBD: commit phase 2' (where the
data buffers are done with), journal_commit_transaction() can also release
the data buffers marked 'BH_Freed' and the pages to which they belong.

As a result, all the buffers marked 'BH_Freed' can be released, and also
all the pages to which these buffers belong can be released at
journal_commit_transaction().  So, the page which cannot be estimated is
lost.

Duane Griffin [Fri, 25 Jul 2008 08:46:26 +0000]
ext3: handle deleting corrupted indirect blocks

While freeing indirect blocks we attach a journal head to the parent
buffer head, free the blocks, then journal the parent.  If the indirect
block list is corrupted and points to the parent the journal head will be
detached when the block is cleared, causing an OOPS.

Check for that explicitly and handle it gracefully.

This patch fixes the third case (image hdb.20000057.nullderef.gz)
reported in http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10882.

Immediately above the change, in the ext3_free_data function, we call
ext3_clear_blocks to clear the indirect blocks in this parent block.  If
one of those blocks happens to actually be the parent block it will clear
b_private / BH_JBD.

I did the check at the end rather than earlier as it seemed more elegant.
I don't think there should be much practical difference, although it is
possible the FS may not be quite so badly corrupted if we did it the other
way (and didn't clear the block at all).  To be honest, I'm not convinced
there aren't other similar failure modes lurking in this code, although I
couldn't find any with a quick review.

Hidehiro Kawai [Fri, 25 Jul 2008 08:46:24 +0000]
ext3: don't read inode block if the buffer has a write error

A transient I/O error can corrupt inode data.  Here is the scenario:

(1) update inode_A at the block_B
(2) pdflush writes out new inode_A to the filesystem, but it results
    in write I/O error, at this point, BH_Uptodate flag of the buffer
    for block_B is cleared and BH_Write_EIO is set
(3) create new inode_C which located at block_B, and
    __ext3_get_inode_loc() tries to read on-disk block_B because the
    buffer is not uptodate
(4) if it can read on-disk block_B successfully, inode_A is
    overwritten by old data

This patch makes __ext3_get_inode_loc() not read the inode block if the
buffer has BH_Write_EIO flag.  In this case, the buffer should have the
latest information, so setting the uptodate flag to the buffer (this
avoids WARN_ON_ONCE() in mark_buffer_dirty().)

According to this change, we would need to test BH_Write_EIO flag for the
error checking.  Currently nobody checks write I/O errors on metadata
buffers, but it will be done in other patches I'm working on.

gpiolib: allow user-selection

This patch adds functionality to the gpio-lib subsystem to make it
possible to enable the gpio-lib code even if the architecture code didn't
request to get it built in.

The archtitecture code does still need to implement the gpiolib accessor
functions in its asm/gpio.h file.  This patch adds the implementations for
x86 and PPC.

With these changes it is possible to run generic GPIO expansion cards on
every architecture that implements the trivial wrapper functions.  Support
for more architectures can easily be added.

11 years agogpio: mcp23s08 handles multiple chips per chipselect
David Brownell [Fri, 25 Jul 2008 08:46:09 +0000]
gpio: mcp23s08 handles multiple chips per chipselect

Teach the mcp23s08 driver about a curious feature of these chips: up to
four of them can share the same chipselect, with the SPI signals wired in
parallel, by matching two bits in the first protocol byte against two
address lines on the chip.

This is handled by three software changes:

  * Platform data now holds an array of per-chip structs, not
    just one chip's address and pullup configuration.

  * Probe() and remove() now use another level of structure,
    wrapping an instance of the original structure for each
    mcp23s08 chip sharing that chipselect.

  * The HAEN bit is set, so that the hardware address bits can no
    longer be ignored (boot firmware may not have enabled them).

The "one struct per chip" preserves the guts of the current code,
but platform_data will need minor changes.

    OLD:
/* incorrect "slave" ID may not have mattered */
.slave = 3,
.pullups = BIT(3) | BIT(1) | BIT(0),

    NEW:
/* slave address _must_ match chip's wiring */
.chip[3] = {
.is_present = true,
.pullups = BIT(3) | BIT(1) | BIT(0),
},

There's no change in how things _behave_ for spi_device nodes with a
single mcp23s08 chip.  New multi-chip configurations assign GPIOs in
sequence, without holes.  The spi_device just resembles a bigger
controller, but internally it has multiple gpio_chip instances.

11 years agogpio: sysfs interface
David Brownell [Fri, 25 Jul 2008 08:46:07 +0000]
gpio: sysfs interface

This adds a simple sysfs interface for GPIOs.

    /sys/class/gpio
     /export ... asks the kernel to export a GPIO to userspace
     /unexport ... to return a GPIO to the kernel
        /gpioN ... for each exported GPIO #N
    /value ... always readable, writes fail for input GPIOs
    /direction ... r/w as: in, out (default low); write high, low
/gpiochipN ... for each gpiochip; #N is its first GPIO
    /base ... (r/o) same as N
    /label ... (r/o) descriptive, not necessarily unique
    /ngpio ... (r/o) number of GPIOs; numbered N .. N+(ngpio - 1)

GPIOs claimed by kernel code may be exported by its owner using a new
gpio_export() call, which should be most useful for driver debugging.
Such exports may optionally be done without a "direction" attribute.

Userspace may ask to take over a GPIO by writing to a sysfs control file,
helping to cope with incomplete board support or other "one-off"
requirements that don't merit full kernel support:

  echo 23 > /sys/class/gpio/export
... will gpio_request(23, "sysfs") and gpio_export(23);
use /sys/class/gpio/gpio-23/direction to (re)configure it,
when that GPIO can be used as both input and output.
  echo 23 > /sys/class/gpio/unexport
... will gpio_free(23), when it was exported as above

The extra D-space footprint is a few hundred bytes, except for the sysfs
resources associated with each exported GPIO.  The additional I-space
footprint is about two thirds of the current size of gpiolib (!).  Since
no /dev node creation is involved, no "udev" support is needed.

Related changes:

  * This adds a device pointer to "struct gpio_chip".  When GPIO
    providers initialize that, sysfs gpio class devices become children of
    that device instead of being "virtual" devices.

  * The (few) gpio_chip providers which have such a device node have
    been updated.

  * Some gpio_chip drivers also needed to update their module "owner"
    field ...  for which missing kerneldoc was added.

  * Some gpio_chips don't support input GPIOs.  Those GPIOs are now
    flagged appropriately when the chip is registered.

Based on previous patches, and discussion both on and off LKML.

A Documentation/ABI/testing/sysfs-gpio update is ready to submit once this
merges to mainline.

11 years agokprobes: improve kretprobe scalability with hashed locking
Srinivasa D S [Fri, 25 Jul 2008 08:46:04 +0000]
kprobes: improve kretprobe scalability with hashed locking

Currently list of kretprobe instances are stored in kretprobe object (as
used_instances,free_instances) and in kretprobe hash table.  We have one
global kretprobe lock to serialise the access to these lists.  This causes
only one kretprobe handler to execute at a time.  Hence affects system
performance, particularly on SMP systems and when return probe is set on
lot of functions (like on all systemcalls).

Solution proposed here gives fine-grain locks that performs better on SMP
system compared to present kretprobe implementation.

Solution:

 1) Instead of having one global lock to protect kretprobe instances
    present in kretprobe object and kretprobe hash table.  We will have
    two locks, one lock for protecting kretprobe hash table and another
    lock for kretporbe object.

 2) We hold lock present in kretprobe object while we modify kretprobe
    instance in kretprobe object and we hold per-hash-list lock while
    modifying kretprobe instances present in that hash list.  To prevent
    deadlock, we never grab a per-hash-list lock while holding a kretprobe
    lock.

 3) We can remove used_instances from struct kretprobe, as we can
    track used instances of kretprobe instances using kretprobe hash
    table.

Time duration for kernel compilation ("make -j 8") on a 8-way ppc64 system
with return probes set on all systemcalls looks like this.

11 years agoinflate: refactor inflate malloc code
Thomas Petazzoni [Fri, 25 Jul 2008 08:45:44 +0000]
inflate: refactor inflate malloc code

Inflate requires some dynamic memory allocation very early in the boot
process and this is provided with a set of four functions:
malloc/free/gzip_mark/gzip_release.

The old inflate code used a mark/release strategy rather than implement
free.  This new version instead keeps a count on the number of outstanding
allocations and when it hits zero, it resets the malloc arena.

This allows removing all the mark and release implementations and unifying
all the malloc/free implementations.

The architecture-dependent code must define two addresses:
 - free_mem_ptr, the address of the beginning of the area in which
   allocations should be made
 - free_mem_end_ptr, the address of the end of the area in which
   allocations should be made. If set to 0, then no check is made on
   the number of allocations, it just grows as much as needed

The architecture-dependent code can also provide an arch_decomp_wdog()
function call.  This function will be called several times during the
decompression process, and allow to notify the watchdog that the system is
still running.  If an architecture provides such a call, then it must
define ARCH_HAS_DECOMP_WDOG so that the generic inflate code calls
arch_decomp_wdog().

Work initially done by Matt Mackall, updated to a recent version of the
kernel and improved by me.

call_usermodehelper(): increase reliability

Presently call_usermodehelper_setup() uses GFP_ATOMIC.  but it can return
NULL _very_ easily.

GFP_ATOMIC is needed only when we can't sleep.  and, GFP_KERNEL is robust
and better.

thus, I add gfp_mask argument to call_usermodehelper_setup().

So, its callers pass the gfp_t as below:

call_usermodehelper() and call_usermodehelper_keys():
depend on 'wait' argument.
call_usermodehelper_pipe():
always GFP_KERNEL because always run under process context.
orderly_poweroff():
pass to GFP_ATOMIC because may run under interrupt context.

As a bonus, some profile_tick() calls and one branch from schedule() are

lib: allow memparse() to accept a NULL and ignorable second parm

Extend memparse() to allow the caller to use a NULL second parameter, which
would represent no interest in returning the address of the end of the parsed
string.

In numerous cases, callers invoke memparse() to parse a possibly-suffixed
string (such as "64K" or "2G" or whatever) and define a character pointer to
accept the end pointer being returned by memparse() even though they have no
interest in it and promptly throw it away.

This (backward-compatible) enhancement allows callers to use NULL in the cases
where they just don't care about getting back that end pointer.

There haave been several areas in the kernel where an int has been used for

In drivers/ide/ide-iops.c, function ide_fixstring() we now have the
loop:

for (p = end ; p != s;)
be16_to_cpus((u16 *)(p -= 2));

which will never terminate on big-endian because in such
a configuration be16_to_cpus() evaluates to "do { } while (0)"

Therefore, always evaluate the arguments to nop endian transformation

11 years agohvc_console: rework setup to replace irq functions with callbacks

hvc_console: rework setup to replace irq functions with callbacks

This patch tries to change hvc_console to not use request_irq/free_irq if
the backend does not use irqs. This allows virtio_console to use hvc_console
without having a linker reference to request_irq/free_irq.

In addition, together with patch 2/3 it improves the performance for virtio
console input. (an earlier version of this patch was tested by Yajin on lguest)

The irq specific code is moved to hvc_irq.c and selected by the drivers that
use irqs (System p, System i, XEN).

I replaced "int irq" with the opaque "int data". The request_irq and
free_irq calls are replaced with notifier_add and notifier_del. I have also
changed the code a bit to call the notifier_add and notifier_del inside the
spinlock area as the callbacks are found via hp->ops.

Changes since last version:
o remove ifdef
o reintroduce "irq_requested" as "notified"
o cleanups, sparse..

I did not move the timer based polling into a separate polling scheme. I
played with several variants, but it seems we need to sleep/schedule in
a thread even for irq based consoles, as there are throttleing and buffer
size constraints.

I also kept hvc_struct defined in hvc_console.h so that hvc_irq.c can access
the irq_requested element.

Feedback is appreciated. virtio_console is currently the only available console
for kvm on s390. I plan to push this change as soon as all affected parties
agree on it. I would love to get test results from System p, Xen etc.

virtio: don't always force a notification when ring is full

We force notification when the ring is full, even if the host has
indicated it doesn't want to know.  This seemed like a good idea at
the time: if we fill the transmit ring, we should tell the host
immediately.

Unfortunately this logic also applies to the receiving ring, which is
refilled constantly.  We should introduce real notification thesholds
to replace this logic.  Meanwhile, removing the logic altogether breaks
the heuristics which KVM uses, so we use a hack: only notify if there are
outgoing parts of the new buffer.

Here are the number of exits with lguest's crappy network implementation:
Before:
network xmit 7859051 recv 236420

Rusty Russell [Fri, 25 Jul 2008 17:06:01 +0000]
virtio: Recycle unused recv buffer pages for large skbs in net driver

If we hack the virtio_net driver to always allocate full-sized (64k+)
skbuffs, the driver slows down (lguest numbers):

  Time to receive 1GB (small buffers): 10.85 seconds
  Time to receive 1GB (64k+ buffers): 24.75 seconds

Of course, large buffers use up more space in the ring, so we increase
that from 128 to 2048:

  Time to receive 1GB (64k+ buffers, 2k ring): 16.61 seconds

If we recycle pages rather than using alloc_page/free_page:

  Time to receive 1GB (64k+ buffers, 2k ring, recycle pages): 10.81 seconds

This demonstrates that with efficient allocation, we don't need to
have a separate "small buffer" queue.

However, if we delay dropping it until we've stopped the
