11 years agofuse: add blksize field to fuse_attr
Miklos Szeredi [Thu, 18 Oct 2007 10:07:05 +0000]
fuse: add blksize field to fuse_attr

There are cases when the filesystem will be passed the buffer from a single
read or write call, namely:

 1) in 'direct-io' mode (not O_DIRECT), read/write requests don't go
    through the page cache, but go directly to the userspace fs

 2) currently buffered writes are done with single page requests, but
    if Nick's ->perform_write() patch goes it, it will be possible to
    do larger write requests.  But only if the original write() was
    also bigger than a page.

In these cases the filesystem might want to give a hint to the app
about the optimal I/O size.

Allow the userspace filesystem to supply a blksize value to be returned by
stat() and friends.  If the field is zero, it defaults to the old
PAGE_CACHE_SIZE value.

Miklos Szeredi [Thu, 18 Oct 2007 10:06:58 +0000]
fuse: fix race between getattr and write

Getattr and lookup operations can be running in parallel to attribute changing
operations, such as write and setattr.

This means, that if for example getattr was slower than a write, the cached
size attribute could be set to a stale value.

To prevent this race, introduce a per-filesystem attribute version counter.
This counter is incremented whenever cached attributes are modified, and the
incremented value stored in the inode.

Before storing new attributes in the cache, getattr and lookup check, using
the version number, whether the attributes have been modified during the
request's lifetime.  If so, the returned attributes are not cached, because
they might be stale.

This patch set supports large block size(>4k, <=64k) in ext3 just enlarging
the block size limit.  But it is NOT possible to have 64kB blocksize on
ext3 without some changes to the directory handling code.  The reason is
that an empty 64kB directory block would have a rec_len == (__u16)2^16 ==
0, and this would cause an error to be hit in the filesystem.  The proposed
solution is treat 64k rec_len with a an impossible value like rec_len =
0xffff to handle this.

The Patch-set consists of the following 2 patches.
  [1/2]  ext3: enlarge blocksize
         - Allow blocksize up to pagesize

  [2/2]  ext3: fix rec_len overflow
         - prevent rec_len from overflow with 64KB blocksize

Now on 64k page ppc64 box runs with this patch set we could create a 64k
block size ext3, and able to handle empty directory block.

powerpc: add scaled time accounting

This adds POWERPC specific hooks for scaled time accounting.

POWER6 includes a SPURR register.  The SPURR is based off the PURR register
but is scaled based on CPU frequency and issue rates.  This gives a more
accurate account of the instructions used per task.  The PURR and timebase
will be constant relative to the wall clock, irrespective of the CPU
frequency.

This implementation reads the SPURR register in account_system_vtime which
is only call called on context witch and hard and soft irq entry and exit.
The percentage of user and system time is then estimated using the ratio of
these accounted by the PURR.  If the SPURR is not present, the PURR read.

An earlier implementation of this patch read the SPURR whenever the PURR
was read, which included the system call entry and exit path.
Unfortunately this showed a performance regression on lmbench runs, so was
re-implemented.

I've included the lmbench results here when run bare metal on POWER6.  1st

11 years agoV3 file capabilities: alter behavior of cap_setpcap
Andrew Morgan [Thu, 18 Oct 2007 10:05:59 +0000]
V3 file capabilities: alter behavior of cap_setpcap

The non-filesystem capability meaning of CAP_SETPCAP is that a process, p1,
can change the capabilities of another process, p2.  This is not the
meaning that was intended for this capability at all, and this
implementation came about purely because, without filesystem capabilities,
there was no way to use capabilities without one process bestowing them on
another.

Since we now have a filesystem support for capabilities we can fix the
implementation of CAP_SETPCAP.

The most significant thing about this change is that, with it in effect, no
process can set the capabilities of another process.

The capabilities of a program are set via the capability convolution
rules:

   pI(post-exec) = pI(pre-exec)
   pP(post-exec) = (X(aka cap_bset) & fP) | (pI(post-exec) & fI)
   pE(post-exec) = fE ? pP(post-exec) : 0

at exec() time.  As such, the only influence the pre-exec() program can
have on the post-exec() program's capabilities are through the pI
capability set.

The correct implementation for CAP_SETPCAP (and that enabled by this patch)
is that it can be used to add extra pI capabilities to the current process
- to be picked up by subsequent exec()s when the above convolution rules
are applied.

Here is how it works:

Let's say we have a process, p. It has capability sets, pE, pP and pI.
Generally, p, can change the value of its own pI to pI' where

   (pI' & ~pI) & ~pP = 0.

That is, the only new things in pI' that were not present in pI need to
be present in pP.

The role of CAP_SETPCAP is basically to permit changes to pI beyond
the above:

   if (pE & CAP_SETPCAP) {
      pI' = anything; /* ie., even (pI' & ~pI) & ~pP != 0  */
   }

This capability is useful for things like login, which (say, via
pam_cap) might want to raise certain inheritable capabilities for use
by the children of the logged-in user's shell, but those capabilities
are not useful to or needed by the login program itself.

One such use might be to limit who can run ping. You set the
capabilities of the 'ping' program to be "= cap_net_raw+i", and then
only shells that have (pI & CAP_NET_RAW) will be able to run
it. Without CAP_SETPCAP implemented as described above, login(pam_cap)
would have to also have (pP & CAP_NET_RAW) in order to raise this
capability and pass it on through the inheritable set.

11 years agosysctl: deprecate sys_sysctl in a user space visible fashion.
Eric W. Biederman [Thu, 18 Oct 2007 10:05:58 +0000]
sysctl: deprecate sys_sysctl in a user space visible fashion.

After adding checking to register_sysctl_table and finding a whole new set
of bugs.  Missed by countless code reviews and testers I have finally lost
patience with the binary sysctl interface.

The binary sysctl interface has been sort of deprecated for years and
finding a user space program that uses the syscall is more difficult then
finding a needle in a haystack.  Problems continue to crop up, with the in
kernel implementation.  So since supporting something that no one uses is
silly, deprecate sys_sysctl with a sufficient grace period and notice that
the handful of user space applications that care can be fixed or replaced.

The /proc/sys sysctl interface that people use will continue to be
supported indefinitely.

This patch moves the tested warning about sysctls from the path where
sys_sysctl to a separate path called from both implementations of
sys_sysctl, and it adds a proper entry into
Documentation/feature-removal-schedule.

Allowing us to revisit this in a couple years time and actually kill
sys_sysctl.

- Don't complain about 0 ctl_names in sysctl_check_binary_path
  It is valid for someone to remove the sysctl binary interface
  and still keep the same sysctl proc interface.

- Count ctl_names and procnames as matching if they both don't

- Only warn about missing min&max when the generic functions care.

11 years agosysctl: Error on bad sysctl tables
Eric W. Biederman [Thu, 18 Oct 2007 10:05:54 +0000]
sysctl: Error on bad sysctl tables

After going through the kernels sysctl tables several times it has become
clear that code review and testing is just not effective in prevent
problematic sysctl tables from being used in the stable kernel.  I certainly
can't seem to fix the problems as fast as they are introduced.

Therefore this patch adds sysctl_check_table which is called when a sysctl
table is registered and checks to see if we have a problematic sysctl table.

The biggest part of the code is the table of valid binary sysctl entries, but
since we have frozen our set of binary sysctls this table should not need to
change, and it makes it much easier to detect when someone unintentionally
adds a new binary sysctl value.

As best as I can determine all of the several hundred errors spewed on boot up
now are legitimate.

I have factord sysctl_data out of do_sysctl_strategy and exported as a

11 years agoVFS: make notify_change pass ATTR_KILL_S*ID to setattr operations
Jeff Layton [Thu, 18 Oct 2007 10:05:20 +0000]
VFS: make notify_change pass ATTR_KILL_S*ID to setattr operations

When an unprivileged process attempts to modify a file that has the setuid or
setgid bits set, the VFS will attempt to clear these bits.  The VFS will set
the ATTR_KILL_SUID or ATTR_KILL_SGID bits in the ia_valid mask, and then call
notify_change to clear these bits and set the mode accordingly.

With a networked filesystem (NFS and CIFS in particular but likely others),
the client machine or process may not have credentials that allow for setting
the mode.  In some situations, this can lead to file corruption, an operation
failing outright because the setattr fails, or to races that lead to a mode
change being reverted.

In this situation, we'd like to just leave the handling of this to the server
and ignore these bits.  The problem is that by the time the setattr op is
called, the VFS has already reinterpreted the ATTR_KILL_* bits into a mode
change.  The setattr operation has no way to know its intent.

The following patch fixes this by making notify_change no longer clear the
ATTR_KILL_SUID and ATTR_KILL_SGID bits in the ia_valid before handing it off
to the setattr inode op.  setattr can then check for the presence of these
bits, and if they're set it can assume that the mode change was only for the
purposes of clearing these bits.

This means that we now have an implicit assumption that notify_change is never
called with ATTR_MODE and either ATTR_KILL_S*ID bit set.  Nothing currently
enforces that, so this patch also adds a BUG() if that occurs.

11 years agoreiserfs: turn of ATTR_KILL_S*ID at beginning of reiserfs_setattr
Jeff Layton [Thu, 18 Oct 2007 10:05:19 +0000]
reiserfs: turn of ATTR_KILL_S*ID at beginning of reiserfs_setattr

reiserfs_setattr can call notify_change recursively using the same
iattr struct. This could cause it to trip the BUG() in notify_change.
Fix reiserfs to clear those bits near the beginning of the function.

11 years agoknfsd: only set ATTR_KILL_S*ID if ATTR_MODE isn't being explicitly set

knfsd: only set ATTR_KILL_S*ID if ATTR_MODE isn't being explicitly set

It's theoretically possible for a single SETATTR call to come in that sets the
mode and the uid/gid.  In that case, don't set the ATTR_KILL_S*ID bits since
that would trip the BUG() in notify_change.  Just fix up the mode to have the
same effect.

11 years agocpu hotplug: intel_cacheinfo: fix cpu hotplug error handling
Akinobu Mita [Thu, 18 Oct 2007 10:05:16 +0000]
cpu hotplug: intel_cacheinfo: fix cpu hotplug error handling

- Fix resource leakage in error case within detect_cache_attributes()

- Don't register hotcpu notifier when cache_add_dev() returns error

- Introduce cache_dev_map cpumask to track whether cache interface for
  CPU is successfully added by cache_add_dev() or not.

  cache_add_dev() may fail with out of memory error. In order to
  avoid cache_remove_dev() with that uninitialized cache interface when
  CPU_DEAD event is delivered we need to have the cache_dev_map cpumask.

  (We cannot change cache_add_dev() from CPU_ONLINE event handler
  to CPU_UP_PREPARE event handler. Because cache_add_dev() needs
  to do cpuid and store the results with its CPU online.)
