fsldma: split apart external pause and request count features

When using the Freescale DMA controller in external control mode, both the
request count and external pause bits need to be setup correctly. This was
being done with the same function.

The 83xx controller lacks the external pause feature, but has a similar
feature called external start. This feature requires that the request count
bits be setup correctly.

Split the function into two parts, to make it possible to use the external
start feature on the 83xx controller.

dmaengine: kill tx_list

The tx_list attribute of struct dma_async_tx_descriptor is common to
most, but not all dma driver implementations.  None of the upper level
code (dmaengine/async_tx) uses it, so allow drivers to implement it
locally if they need it.  This saves sizeof(struct list_head) bytes for
drivers that do not manage descriptors with a linked list (e.g.: ioatdma
v2,3).

In order to support dynamic resizing of the descriptor ring or polling

This conversion also allows us to return to opportunistic cleanup in the

after every descriptor is submitted.  This means the worst case

10 years agodmaengine: move HIGHMEM64G restriction to ASYNC_TX_DMA
Dan Williams [Wed, 1 Jul 2009 23:12:53 +0000]
dmaengine: move HIGHMEM64G restriction to ASYNC_TX_DMA

On HIGHMEM64G systems dma_addr_t is known to be larger than (void *)
which precludes async_xor from performing dma address conversions by
reusing the input parameter address list.  However, other parts of the
dmaengine infrastructure do not suffer this constraint, so the
HIGHMEM64G restriction can be down-levelled.

Quoting from the commit message:

 "At this point, it seems to solve more problems than it causes, so let's
  try using it by default.  It's an easy revert if it ends up causing

And guess what? The _CRS code causes trouble.

10 years agofutex: Fix the write access fault problem for real
Thomas Gleixner [Thu, 11 Jun 2009 21:15:43 +0000]
futex: Fix the write access fault problem for real

commit 64d1304a64 (futex: setup writeable mapping for futex ops which
modify user space data) did address only half of the problem of write
access faults.

The patch was made on two wrong assumptions:

1) access_ok(VERIFY_WRITE,...) would actually check write access.

   On x86 it does _NOT_. It's a pure address range check.

2) a RW mapped region can not go away under us.

   That's wrong as well. Nobody can prevent another thread to call
   mprotect(PROT_READ) on that region where the futex resides. If that
   call hits between the get_user_pages_fast() verification and the
   actual write access in the atomic region we are toast again.

The solution is to not rely on access_ok and get_user() for any write
access related fault on private and shared futexes. Instead we need to
fault it in with verification of write access.

There is no generic non destructive write mechanism which would fault
the user page in trough a #PF, but as we already know that we will
fault we can as well call get_user_pages() directly and avoid the #PF
overhead.

If get_user_pages() returns -EFAULT we know that we can not fix it
anymore and need to bail out to user space.

Remove a bunch of confusing comments on this issue as well.

Don't warn about order-1 allocations with __GFP_NOFAIL

Traditionally, we never failed small orders (even regardless of any
__GFP_NOFAIL flags), and slab will allocate order-1 allocations even for
small allocations that could fit in a single page (in order to avoid
excessive fragmentation).

Maybe we should remove this warning entirely, but before making that
judgement, at least limit it to bigger allocations.

10 years agoStaging: octeon-ethernet: Fix race freeing transmit buffers.
David Daney [Tue, 23 Jun 2009 23:20:56 +0000]
Staging: octeon-ethernet: Fix race freeing transmit buffers.

The existing code had the following race:

Thread-1                       Thread-2

inc/read in_use
                               inc/read in_use
inc tx_free_list[qos].len
                               inc tx_free_list[qos].len

The actual in_use value was incremented twice, but thread-1 is going
to free memory based on its stale value, and will free one too many
times.  The result is that memory is freed back to the kernel while
its packet is still in the transmit buffer.  If the memory is
overwritten before it is transmitted, the hardware will put a valid
checksum on it and send it out (just like it does with good packets).
If by chance the TCP flags are clobbered but not the addresses or
ports, the result can be a broken TCP stream.

The fix is to track the number of freed packets in a single location
(a Fetch-and-Add Unit register).  That way it can never get out of sync
with itself.

We try to free up to MAX_SKB_TO_FREE (currently 10) buffers at a time.
If fewer are available we adjust the free count with the difference.
The action of claiming buffers to free is atomic so two threads cannot
claim the same buffers.

tty: fix tty_port_block_til_ready waiting

Since commit 3e3b5c087799e536871c8261b05bc28e4783c8da ("tty: use
prepare/finish_wait"), tty_port_block_til_ready() is using
prepare_to_wait()/finish_wait().  Those functions require that the
wait_queue_t be initialised with .func=autoremove_wake_function, via
DEFINE_WAIT().

But the conversion from DECLARE_WAITQUEUE() to DEFINE_WAIT() was not made,
so this code will oops in finish_wait().

10 years agoreiserfs: minimal fix for ACL caching
Al Viro [Tue, 9 Jun 2009 00:46:54 +0000]
reiserfs: minimal fix for ACL caching

reiserfs uses NULL as "unknown" and ERR_PTR(-ENODATA) as "no ACL";
several codepaths store the former instead of the latter.

All those codepaths go through iset_acl() and all cases when it's
called with NULL acl are for the second variety, so the minimal
fix is to teach iset_acl() to deal with that.

Proper fix is to switch to more usual conventions and avoid back
and forth between internally used ERR_PTR(-ENODATA) and NULL
expected by the rest of the kernel.

This patch adds ioctls to vfs for compatibility with legacy XFS
pre-allocation ioctls (XFS_IOC_*RESVP*). The implementation
effectively invokes sys_fallocate for the new ioctls.
Also handles the compat_ioctl case.

Al Viro [Wed, 24 Jun 2009 06:05:18 +0000]
Make allocation of anon devices cheaper

Standard trick - add a new variable (start) such that
for each n < start n is known to be busy.  Allocation can
skip checking everything in [0..start) and if it returns
n, we can set start to n + 1.  Freeing below start sets
start to what we'd just freed.

Of course, it still sucks if we do something like
free 0
allocate
allocate
in a loop - still O(n^2) time.  However, on saner loads it
improves the things a lot and the entire thing is not worth
the trouble of switching to something with better worst-case
behaviour.
