[PATCH] SUNRPC: don't reencode when looping in call transmit.

If the call to xprt_transmit() fails due to socket buffer space
exhaustion, we do not need to re-encode the RPC message when we
loop back through call_transmit.

Re-encoding can actually end up triggering the WARN_ON() in
call_decode() if we re-encode something like a read() request and
auth->au_rslack has changed.
It can also cause us to increment the RPCSEC_GSS sequence number
beyond the limits of the allowed window.

14 years ago[NETLINK]: Generic netlink family
Thomas Graf [Thu, 10 Nov 2005 01:25:56 +0000]
[NETLINK]: Generic netlink family

The generic netlink family builds on top of netlink and provides
simplifies access for the less demanding netlink users. It solves
the problem of protocol numbers running out by introducing a so
called controller taking care of id management and name resolving.

Generic netlink modules register themself after filling out their
id card (struct genl_family), after successful registration the
modules are able to register callbacks to command numbers by
filling out a struct genl_ops and calling genl_register_op(). The
registered callbacks are invoked with attributes parsed making
life of simple modules a lot easier.

Although generic netlink modules can request static identifiers,
it is recommended to use GENL_ID_GENERATE and to let the controller
assign a unique identifier to the module. Userspace applications
will then ask the controller and lookup the idenfier by the module
name.

Due to the current multicast implementation of netlink, the number
of generic netlink modules is restricted to 1024 to avoid wasting
memory for the per socket multiacst subscription bitmask.

14 years ago[NETFILTER]: Add nf_conntrack subsystem.
Yasuyuki Kozakai [Thu, 10 Nov 2005 00:38:16 +0000]
[NETFILTER]: Add nf_conntrack subsystem.

The existing connection tracking subsystem in netfilter can only
handle ipv4.  There were basically two choices present to add
connection tracking support for ipv6.  We could either duplicate all
of the ipv4 connection tracking code into an ipv6 counterpart, or (the
choice taken by these patches) we could design a generic layer that
could handle both ipv4 and ipv6 and thus requiring only one sub-protocol
(TCP, UDP, etc.) connection tracking helper module to be written.

In fact nf_conntrack is capable of working with any layer 3
protocol.

The existing ipv4 specific conntrack code could also not deal
with the pecularities of doing connection tracking on ipv6,
which is also cured here.  For example, these issues include:

1) ICMPv6 handling, which is used for neighbour discovery in
   ipv6 thus some messages such as these should not participate
   in connection tracking since effectively they are like ARP
   messages

2) fragmentation must be handled differently in ipv6, because
   the simplistic "defrag, connection track and NAT, refrag"
   (which the existing ipv4 connection tracking does) approach simply
   isn't feasible in ipv6

3) ipv6 extension header parsing must occur at the correct spots
   before and after connection tracking decisions, and there were
   no provisions for this in the existing connection tracking
   design

4) ipv6 has no need for stateful NAT

The ipv4 specific conntrack layer is kept around, until all of
the ipv4 specific conntrack helpers are ported over to nf_conntrack
and it is feature complete.  Once that occurs, the old conntrack
stuff will get placed into the feature-removal-schedule and we will
fully kill it off 6 months later.

[PATCH] md: improve 'scan_mode' and rename it to 'sync_action'

The current sync_action for an array can be one of

   idle  - nothing happening
   resync - reduncancy being recalcualted
   recover - missing device being recoverred to spare
   check   - user initiated check of redundancy
   repair  - like resync but user-initiated and ignores
             bitmap optimisation.

Each of these strings can also be written to the 'sync_action' file to cause
that action to happen (if appropriate).

While 'sync' is not technically correct, as a recovery is *not* a 'sync', I
think it is the most servicable word here.  Also 'action' is a strong word
than 'mode'.

   (the array could have been stopped while an attribute file was open).

4/ A missing 'kfree' from when the raid5_conf_t was converted to have a

NeilBrown [Wed, 9 Nov 2005 05:39:36 +0000]
[PATCH] md: allow md arrays to be started read-only (module parameter).

When an md array is started, the superblock will be written, and resync may
commense.  This is not good if you want to be completely read-only as, for
example, when preparing to resume from a suspend-to-disk image.

So introduce a module parameter "start_ro" which can be set
to '1' at boot, at module load, or via
  /sys/module/md_mod/parameters/start_ro

When this is set, new arrays get an 'auto-ro' mode, which disables all
internal io (superblock updates, resync, recovery) and is automatically
switched to 'rw' when the first write request arrives.

The array can be set to true 'ro' mode using 'mdadm -r' before the first
write request, or resync can be started without a write using 'mdadm -w'.

any stable name related to the array -(version-1 assigns a fixed index when
a device is added to an array, and this remains despit any hot-swap).

The intial code for making these devices appear in sysfs used dynamic
names, which would change whenever a hot-spare was swapped for a failed or
missing device.  This turns out not to be practical in sysfs for a number
of reasons.

This patch changes then naming of component devices to be based on the
result of 'bdevname'.  This is stable and should be unique.

14 years ago[PATCH] md: support BIO_RW_BARRIER for md/raid1
NeilBrown [Wed, 9 Nov 2005 05:39:34 +0000]
[PATCH] md: support BIO_RW_BARRIER for md/raid1

We can only accept BARRIER requests if all slaves handle
barriers, and that can, of course, change with time....

So we keep track of whether the whole array seems safe for barriers,
and also whether each individual rdev handles barriers.

We initially assumes barriers are OK.

When writing the superblock we try a barrier, and if that fails, we flag
things for no-barriers.  This will usually clear the flags fairly quickly.

If writing the superblock finds that BIO_RW_BARRIER is -ENOTSUPP, we need to
resubmit, so introduce function "md_super_wait" which waits for requests to
finish, and retries ENOTSUPP requests without the barrier flag.

When writing the real raid1, write requests which were BIO_RW_BARRIER but
which aresn't supported need to be retried.  So raid1d is enhanced to do this,
and when any bio write completes (i.e.  no retry needed) we remove it from the
r1bio, so that devices needing retry are easy to find.

We should hardly ever get -ENOTSUPP errors when writing data to the raid.
It should only happen if:
  1/ the device used to support BARRIER, but now doesn't.  Few devices
     change like this, though raid1 can!
or
  2/ the array has no persistent superblock, so there was no opportunity to
     pre-test for barriers when writing the superblock.

[PATCH] md: improvements to raid5 handling of read errors

Two refinements to the 'attempt-overwrite-on-read-error' mechanism.
1/ If the array is read-only, don't attempt an over-write.
2/ If there are more than max_nr_stripes read errors on a device with
   no success, fail the drive.  This will make sure a dead
   drive will be eventually kicked even when we aren't trying
   to rewrite (which would normally kick a dead drive more quickly.

14 years ago[PATCH] md: better handling of readerrors with raid5.
NeilBrown [Wed, 9 Nov 2005 05:39:22 +0000]
[PATCH] md: better handling of readerrors with raid5.

This patch changes the behaviour of raid5 when it gets a read error.
Instead of just failing the device, it tried to find out what should have
been there, and writes it over the bad block.  For some media-errors, this
has a reasonable chance of fixing the error.  If the write succeeds, and a
subsequent read succeeds as well, raid5 decided the address is OK and
conitnues.

Instead of failing a drive on read-error, we attempt to re-write the block,
and then re-read.  If that all works, we allow the device to remain in the
array.

Add ability to set rotation via sysfs.  The attributes are located in
/sys/class/graphics/fb[n] and accepts 0 - unrotated; 1 - clockwise; 2 - upside
down; 3 - counterclockwise.

The attributes are:

con_rotate (r/w) -   set rotation of the active console
con_rotate_all (w) - set rotation of all consoles
rotate (r/w) -       set rotation of the framebuffer, if supported.
Currently, none of the drivers support this.

This is probably temporary, since con_rotate and con_rotate_all are
console-specific and has no business being under the fb device.  However,
until the console layer acquires it's own sysfs class, these attributes will
temporarily reside here.

14 years ago[PATCH] fbcon: Console Rotation - Prepare fbcon for console rotation
Antonino A. Daplas [Wed, 9 Nov 2005 05:39:09 +0000]
[PATCH] fbcon: Console Rotation - Prepare fbcon for console rotation

This patch series implements generic code to rotate the console at 90, 180,
and 270 degrees. The implementation is completely done in the framebuffer
console level, thus no changes to the framebuffer layer or to the drivers
are needed.

Console rotation is required by some Sharp-based devices where the natural
orientation of the display is not at 0 degrees. Also, users that have
displays that can pivot will benefit by having a console in portrait mode
if they so desire.

The choice to implement the code in the console layer rather than in the
framebuffer layer is due to the following reasons:

- it's fast
- it does not require driver changes
- it can coexist with devices that can rotate the display at the hardware level
- it complements graphics applications that can do display rotation

The changes to core fbcon are minimal-- recognition of the console
rotation angle so it can swap directions, origins and axes (xres vs yres,
xpanstep vs ypanstep, xoffset vs yoffset, etc) and storage of the rotation
angle per display. The bulk of the code that does the actual drawing to the
screen are placed in separate files. Each angle of rotation has separate
methods (bmove, clear, putcs, cursor, update_start which is derived from
update_var, and clear_margins).  To mimimize processing time, the fontdata
are pre-rotated at each console switch (only if the font or the angle has
changed).

The option can be compiled out (CONFIG_FRAMEBUFFER_CONSOLE_ROTATION = n) if
rotation is not needed.

Choosing the rotation angle can be done in several ways:

1. boot option fbcon=rotate:n, where
     n = 0 - normal
     n = 1 - 90 degrees (clockwise)
     n = 2 - 180 degrees (upside down)
     n = 3 - 270 degrees (counterclockwise)

2. echo n > /sys/class/graphics/fb[num]/con_rotate

     where n is the same as described above. It sets the angle of rotation
of the current console

3 echo n > /sys/class/graphics/fb[num]/con_rotate_all

     where n is the same as described above. Globally sets the angle of
rotation.

GOTCHAS:

The option, especially at angles of 90 and 270 degrees, will exercise
the least used code of drivers.  Namely, at these angles, panning is done
in the x-axis, so it can reveal bugs in the driver if xpanstep is set
incorrectly. A workaround is to set xpanstep = 0.

Secondly, at these angles, the framebuffer memory access can be
unaligned if (fontheight * bpp) % 32 ~= 0 which can reveal bugs in the drivers
imageblit, fillrect and copyarea functions.  (I think cfbfillrect may have
this buglet). A workaround is to use a standard 8x16 font.

Speed:

The scrolling speed difference between 0 and 180 degrees is minimal,
somewhere areound 1-2%.  At 90 or 270 degress, speed drops down to a vicinity
of 30-40%. This is understandable because the blit direction is across the
framebuffer "direction." Scrolling will be helped at these angles if xpanstep
is not equal to zero, use of 8x16 fonts, and setting xres_virtual >= xres * 2.

Note: The code is tested on little-endian only, so I don't know if it will
work in big-endian. Please let me know, it will take only less than a minute
of your time.

This patch prepares fbcon for console rotation and contains the following
changes:

- add rotate field in struct fbcon_ops to keep fbcon's current rotation
  angle

- add con_rotate field in struct display to store per-display rotation angle

- create a private copy of the current var to fbcon.  This will prevent
  fbcon from directly manipulating info->var, especially the fields xoffset,
  yoffset and vmode.

- add ability to swap pertinent axes (xres, yres; xpanstep, ypanstep; etc)
  depending on the rotation angle

- change global update_var() (function that sets the screen start address)
  as an fbcon method update_start.  This is required because the axes, start
  offset, and/or direction can be reversed depending on the rotation angle.

- add fbcon method rotate_font() which will rotate each character bitmap to
  the correct angle of rotation.

- add fbcon boot option 'rotate' to select the angle of rotation at bootime.
   Currently does nothing until all patches are applied.
