13 years agodio: fix cache invalidation after sync writes
Zach Brown [Tue, 30 Oct 2007 18:45:46 +0000]
dio: fix cache invalidation after sync writes

Commit commit 65b8291c4000e5f38fc94fb2ca0cb7e8683c8a1b ("dio: invalidate
clean pages before dio write") introduced a bug which stopped dio from
ever invalidating the page cache after writes.  It still invalidated it
before writes so most users were fine.

Karl Schendel reported ( http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/10/26/481 ) hitting
this bug when he had a buffered reader immediately reading file data
after an O_DIRECT wirter had written the data.  The kernel issued
read-ahead beyond the position of the reader which overlapped with the
O_DIRECT writer.  The failure to invalidate after writes caused the
reader to see stale data from the read-ahead.

The following patch is originally from Karl.  The following commentary
is his:

The below 3rd try takes on your suggestion of just invalidating
no matter what the retval from the direct_IO call.  I ran it
thru the test-case several times and it has worked every time.
The post-invalidate is probably still too early for async-directio,
but I don't have a testcase for that;  just sync.  And, this
won't be any worse in the async case.

I added a test to the aio-dio-regress repository which mimics Karl's IO
pattern.  It verifed the bad behaviour and that the patch fixed it.  I
agree with Karl, this still doesn't help the case where a buffered
reader follows an AIO O_DIRECT writer.  That will require a bit more
work.

This gives up on the idea of returning EIO to indicate to userspace that
stale data remains if the invalidation failed.

locks: fix possible infinite loop in posix deadlock detection

It's currently possible to send posix_locks_deadlock() into an infinite
loop (under the BKL).

For now, fix this just by bailing out after a few iterations.  We may
want to fix this in a way that better clarifies the semantics of
deadlock detection.  But that will take more time, and this minimal fix
is probably adequate for any realistic scenario, and is simple enough to
be appropriate for applying to stable kernels now.

Hugh Dickins [Mon, 29 Oct 2007 21:37:20 +0000]
fix tmpfs BUG and AOP_WRITEPAGE_ACTIVATE

It's possible to provoke unionfs (not yet in mainline, though in mm and
some distros) to hit shmem_writepage's BUG_ON(page_mapped(page)).  I expect
it's possible to provoke the 2.6.23 ecryptfs in the same way (but the
2.6.24 ecryptfs no longer calls lower level's ->writepage).

This came to light with the recent find that AOP_WRITEPAGE_ACTIVATE could
leak from tmpfs via write_cache_pages and unionfs to userspace.  There's
already a fix (e423003028183df54f039dfda8b58c49e78c89d7 - writeback: don't
propagate AOP_WRITEPAGE_ACTIVATE) in the tree for that, and it's okay so
far as it goes; but insufficient because it doesn't address the underlying
issue, that shmem_writepage expects to be called only by vmscan (relying on
backing_dev_info capabilities to prevent the normal writeback path from
ever approaching it).

That's an increasingly fragile assumption, and ramdisk_writepage (the other
source of AOP_WRITEPAGE_ACTIVATEs) is already careful to check
wbc->for_reclaim before returning it.  Make the same check in
shmem_writepage, thereby sidestepping the page_mapped BUG also.

init_mm is defined as extern in sched.h, so we add it to the headers list

Tejun Heo [Fri, 26 Oct 2007 07:19:26 +0000]
libata: implement and use ATA_QCFLAG_QUIET

Implement ATA_QCFLAG_QUIET which indicates that there's no need to
report if the command fails with AC_ERR_DEV and set it for passthrough
commands.

Combined with previous changes, this now makes device errors for all
direct commands reported directly to the issuer without going through
EH actions and reporting.

Note that EH is still invoked after non-IO device errors to determine
the nature of the error and resume command execution (some controller
requires special care after error to continue).  It just performs
default maintenance after error, examines what's going on, realizes
that it's none of its business and reports the command failure without
logging any error messages.

libata: stop being overjealous about non-IO commands

libata EH always revalidated device and retried failed command after
error except for ATAPI CCs.  This is unnecessary and hinders with
users issuing direct commands.  This patch makes the following
changes.

* Make sata_sil24 not request ATA_EH_REVALIDATE on device errors.
  sil24 is the only driver which does this.  All others let libata EH
  core code decide.

* Don't request revalidation after device error of non-IO command.
  Revalidation doesn't really help anybody.  As ATA_EH_REVALIDATE
  isn't set by default, there's no reason to clear it after sense data
  is read.  Kill ATA_EH_REVALIDATE clearing code while at it.

* Don't retry non-IO command after device error.  Device has rejected
  the command.  There's no point in retrying.

13 years agosata_promise: ASIC PRD table bug workaround, take 2
Mikael Pettersson [Tue, 30 Oct 2007 13:20:49 +0000]
sata_promise: ASIC PRD table bug workaround, take 2

Second-generation Promise SATA controllers have an ASIC bug
which can trigger if the last PRD entry is larger than 164 bytes,
resulting in intermittent errors and possible data corruption.

Work around this by replacing calls to ata_qc_prep() with a
private version that fills the PRD, checks the size of the
last entry, and if necessary splits it to avoid the bug.
Also reduce sg_tablesize by 1 to accommodate the new entry.

Tested on the second-generation SATA300 TX4 and SATA300 TX2plus,
and the first-generation PDC20378.

Thanks to Alexander Sabourenkov for verifying the bug by
studying the vendor driver, and for writing the initial patch
upon which this one is based.

13 years ago[TCP]: Saner thash_entries default with much memory.
Jean Delvare [Tue, 30 Oct 2007 07:59:25 +0000]
[TCP]: Saner thash_entries default with much memory.

On systems with a very large amount of memory, the heuristics in
alloc_large_system_hash() result in a very large TCP established hash
table: 16 millions of entries for a 128 GB ia64 system. This makes
reading from /proc/net/tcp pretty slow (well over a second) and as a
result netstat is slow on these machines. I know that /proc/net/tcp is
deprecated in favor of tcp_diag, however at the moment netstat only
knows of the former.

I am skeptical that such a large TCP established hash is often needed.
Just because a system has a lot of memory doesn't imply that it will
have several millions of concurrent TCP connections. Thus I believe
that we should put an arbitrary high limit to the size of the TCP
established hash by default. Users who really need a bigger hash can
always use the thash_entries boot parameter to get more.

I propose 2 millions of entries as the arbitrary high limit. This
makes /proc/net/tcp reasonably fast on the system in question (0.2 s)
while being still large enough for me to be confident that network
performance won't suffer.

This is just one way to limit the hash size, there are others; I am not
familiar enough with the TCP code to decide which is best. Thus, I
would welcome the proposals of alternatives.

[ 2 million is still too large, thus I've modified the limit in the
  change to be '512 * 1024'. -DaveM ]

Linus Torvalds [Mon, 29 Oct 2007 18:36:04 +0000]
Revert "x86_64: allocate sparsemem memmap above 4G"

This reverts commit 2e1c49db4c640b35df13889b86b9d62215ade4b6.

First off, testing in Fedora has shown it to cause boot failures,
bisected down by Martin Ebourne, and reported by Dave Jobes.  So the
commit will likely be reverted in the 2.6.23 stable kernels.

Secondly, in the 2.6.24 model, x86-64 has now grown support for
SPARSEMEM_VMEMMAP, which disables the relevant code anyway, so while the
bug is not visible any more, it's become invisible due to the code just
being irrelevant and no longer enabled on the only architecture that
this ever affected.

13 years ago[MIPS] MT: Fix bug in multithreaded kernels.
Ralf Baechle [Mon, 8 Oct 2007 15:38:37 +0000]
[MIPS] MT: Fix bug in multithreaded kernels.

When GDB writes a breakpoint into address area of inferior process the
kernel needs to invalidate the modified memory in the inferior which
is done by calling flush_cache_page which in turns calls
r4k_flush_cache_page and local_r4k_flush_cache_page for VSMP or SMTC
kernel via r4k_on_each_cpu().

As the VSMP and SMTC SMP kernels for 34K are running on a single shared
caches it is possible to get away without interprocessor function calls.
This optimization is implemented in r4k_on_each_cpu, so
local_r4k_flush_cache_page is only ever called on the local CPU.

This is where the following code in local_r4k_flush_cache_page() strikes:

        /*
         * If ownes no valid ASID yet, cannot possibly have gotten
         * this page into the cache.
         */
        if (cpu_context(smp_processor_id(), mm) == 0)
                return;

On VSMP and SMTC had a function of cpu_context() for each CPU(TC).

So in case another CPU than the CPU executing local_r4k_cache_flush_page
has not accessed the mm but one of the other CPUs has there may be data
to be flushed in the cache yet local_r4k_cache_flush_page will falsely
return leaving the I-cache inconsistent for the breakpoint.

While the issue was discovered with GDB it also exists in
local_r4k_flush_cache_range() and local_r4k_flush_cache().

Fixed by introducing a new function has_valid_asid which on MT kernels
returns true if a mm is active on any processor in the system.

This is relativly expensive since for memory acccesses in that loop
cache misses have to be assumed but it seems the most viable solution
for 2.6.23 and older -stable kernels.

[MIPS] c-r3k: Implement flush_cache_range()

Contrary to the belief of some, the R3000 and related processors did have
caches, both a data and an instruction cache.  Here is an implementation
of r3k_flush_cache_page(), which is the processor-specific back-end for
flush_cache_range(), done according to the spec in
Documentation/cachetlb.txt.

While at it, remove an unused local function: get_phys_page(), do some
trivial formatting fixes and modernise debugging facilities.

13 years ago[MIPS] Store sign-extend register values for PTRACE_GETREGS
Atsushi Nemoto [Thu, 25 Oct 2007 15:53:02 +0000]
[MIPS] Store sign-extend register values for PTRACE_GETREGS

A comment on ptrace_getregs() states "Registers are sign extended to
fill the available space." but it is not true.  Fix code to match the
comment.  Also fix casts on each caller to get rid of some warnings.

13 years ago[MIPS] Add len and addr validation for MAP_FIXED mappings.
David Daney [Sun, 28 Oct 2007 06:10:20 +0000]
[MIPS] Add len and addr validation for MAP_FIXED mappings.

Mmap with MAP_FIXED was not validating the addr and len parameters.  This
leads to the failure of GCC's gcc.c-torture/execute/loop-2[fg].c testcases
when using the o32 ABI on a 64 bit kernel.

These testcases try to mmap 65536 bytes at 0x7fff8000 and then access all
the memory.  In 2.6.18 and 2.6.23.1 (and likely other versions as well)
the kernel maps the requested memory, but since half of it is above
0x80000000 a SIGBUS is generated when it is accessed.

This patch moves the len validation above the MAP_FIXED processing so that
it is always validated.  It also adds validation to the addr parameter for
MAP_FIXED mappings.
