13 years ago[INET]: Use pskb_trim_unique when trimming paged unique skbs
Herbert Xu [Mon, 14 Aug 2006 03:12:58 +0000]
[INET]: Use pskb_trim_unique when trimming paged unique skbs

The IPv4/IPv6 datagram output path was using skb_trim to trim paged
packets because they know that the packet has not been cloned yet
(since the packet hasn't been given to anything else in the system).

This broke because skb_trim no longer allows paged packets to be
trimmed.  Paged packets must be given to one of the pskb_trim functions
instead.

This patch adds a new pskb_trim_unique function to cover the IPv4/IPv6
datagram output path scenario and replaces the corresponding skb_trim
calls with it.

[NETFILTER]: ulog: fix panic on SMP kernels

Fix kernel panic on various SMP machines. The culprit is a null
ub->skb in ulog_send(). If ulog_timer() has already been scheduled on
one CPU and is spinning on the lock, and ipt_ulog_packet() flushes the
queue on another CPU by calling ulog_send() right before it exits,
there will be no skbuff when ulog_timer() acquires the lock and calls
ulog_send(). Cancelling the timer in ulog_send() doesn't help because
it has already been scheduled and is running on the first CPU.

Similar problem exists in ebt_ulog.c and nfnetlink_log.c.

David S. Miller [Mon, 14 Aug 2006 01:55:53 +0000]
[IPSEC]: Validate properly in xfrm_dst_check()

If dst->obsolete is -1, this is a signal from the
bundle creator that we want the XFRM dst and the
dsts that it references to be validated on every
use.

I misunderstood this intention when I changed
xfrm_dst_check() to always return NULL.

Now, when we purge a dst entry, by running dst_free()
on it.  This will set the dst->obsolete to a positive
integer, and we want to return NULL in that case so
that the socket does a relookup for the route.

Thus, if dst->obsolete<0, let stale_bundle() validate
the state, else always return NULL.

In general, we need to do things more intelligently
here because we flush too much state during rule
changes.  Herbert Xu has some ideas wherein the key
manager gives us some help in this area.  We can also
use smarter state management algorithms inside of
the kernel as well.

[XFS] Fix xfs_free_extent related NULL pointer dereference.

We recently fixed an out-of-space deadlock in XFS, and part of that fix
involved the addition of the XFS_ALLOC_FLAG_FREEING flag to some of the
space allocator calls to indicate they're freeing space, not allocating
it. There was a missed xfs_alloc_fix_freelist condition test that did not
correctly test "flags". The same test would also test an uninitialised
structure field (args->userdata) and depending on its value either would
or would not return early with a critical buffer pointer set to NULL.

This fixes that up, adds asserts to several places to catch future botches
of this nature, and skips sections of xfs_alloc_fix_freelist that are
irrelevent for the space-freeing case.

[NET]: add_timer -> mod_timer() in dst_run_gc()

Patch from Dmitry Mishin <dim@openvz.org>:

Replace add_timer() by mod_timer() in dst_run_gc
in order to avoid BUG message.

       CPU1                            CPU2
dst_run_gc()  entered           dst_run_gc() entered
spin_lock(&dst_lock)                   .....
del_timer(&dst_gc_timer)         fail to get lock
       ....                         mod_timer() <--- puts
                                                 timer back
                                                 to the list
add_timer(&dst_gc_timer) <--- BUG because timer is in list already.

Found during OpenVZ internal testing.

At first we thought that it is OpenVZ specific as we
added dst_run_gc(0) call in dst_dev_event(),
but as Alexey pointed to me it is possible to trigger
this condition in mainstream kernel.

F.e. timer has fired on CPU2, but the handler was preeempted
by an irq before dst_lock is tried.
Meanwhile, someone on CPU1 adds an entry to gc list and
starts the timer.
If CPU2 was preempted long enough, this timer can expire
simultaneously with resuming timer handler on CPU1, arriving
exactly to the situation described.

13 years ago[TG3]: Fix tx race condition
Michael Chan [Tue, 8 Aug 2006 04:46:02 +0000]
[TG3]: Fix tx race condition

Fix a subtle race condition between tg3_start_xmit() and tg3_tx()
discovered by Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>:

CPU0 CPU1
tg3_start_xmit()
if (tx_ring_full) {
tx_lock
tg3_tx()
if (!netif_queue_stopped)
netif_stop_queue()
if (!tx_ring_full)
update_tx_ring
netif_wake_queue()
tx_unlock
}

Even though tx_ring is updated before the if statement in tg3_tx() in
program order, it can be re-ordered by the CPU as shown above.  This
scenario can cause the tx queue to be stopped forever if tg3_tx() has
just freed up the entire tx_ring.  The possibility of this happening
should be very rare though.

The following changes are made:

1. Add memory barrier to fix the above race condition.

2. Eliminate the private tx_lock altogether and rely solely on
netif_tx_lock.  This eliminates one spinlock in tg3_start_xmit()
when the ring is full.

3. Because of 2, use netif_tx_lock in tg3_tx() before calling
netif_wake_queue().

4. Change TX_BUFFS_AVAIL to an inline function with a memory barrier.
Herbert and David suggested using the memory barrier instead of
volatile.

5. Check for the full wake queue condition before getting
netif_tx_lock in tg3_tx().  This reduces the number of unnecessary
spinlocks when the tx ring is full in a steady-state condition.

6. Update version to 3.65.

[IPV4]: Limit rt cache size properly.

From: Kirill Korotaev <dev@sw.ru>

During OpenVZ stress testing we found that UDP traffic with random src
can generate too much excessive rt hash growing leading finally to OOM
and kernel panics.

It was found that for 4GB i686 system (having 1048576 total pages and
  225280 normal zone pages) kernel allocates the following route hash:
syslog: IP route cache hash table entries: 262144 (order: 8, 1048576
bytes) => ip_rt_max_size = 4194304 entries, i.e.  max rt size is
4194304 * 256b = 1Gb of RAM > normal_zone

alloc_large_system_hash() call.

[PATCH] SCX200_ACB: eliminate spurious timeout errors

While busy-waiting for completion, check the hardware after scheduling;
don't schedule and then immediately check the _timeout_.  If the yield()
took a long time (as it does on my OLPC prototype board when it's busy),
we'd report a timeout even though the hardware was now ready.

This fixes it, and also switches the yield() for a cond_resched() because
we don't actually want to be _that_ nice about it.  I see nice
tightly-packed SMBus transactions now, rather than waiting for milliseconds
between successive phases.

Actually, we shouldn't be busy-waiting here at all.  We should be using
interrupts.  That's an exercise for another day though.

[PATCH] udf: initialize parts of inode earlier in create

I saw an oops down this path when trying to create a new file on a UDF
filesystem which was internally marked as readonly, but mounted rw:

udf_create
        udf_new_inode
                new_inode
                        alloc_inode
                         udf_alloc_inode
                udf_new_block
                        returns EIO due to readonlyness
                iput (on error)
                        udf_put_inode
                                udf_discard_prealloc
                                        udf_next_aext
                                                udf_current_aext
                                                        udf_get_fileshortad
                                                                OOPS

the udf_discard_prealloc() path was examining uninitialized fields of the
udf inode.

udf_discard_prealloc() already has this code to short-circuit the discard
path if no extents are preallocated:

        if (UDF_I_ALLOCTYPE(inode) == ICBTAG_FLAG_AD_IN_ICB ||
                inode->i_size == UDF_I_LENEXTENTS(inode))
        {
                return;
        }

so if we initialize UDF_I_LENEXTENTS(inode) = 0 earlier in udf_new_inode,
we won't try to free the (not) preallocated blocks, since this will match
the i_size = 0 set when the inode was initialized.

[PATCH] pnpacpi: reject ACPI_PRODUCER resources

A patch in -mm kernel correct the parsing of "address resources" of pnpacpi.
Before we assumed it was memory only, but it could be also IO.

But this change show an hidden bug : some resources could be producer type
that are not handled by pnp layer.  So we should ignore the producer
resources.

This patch fixes bug 6292 (http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6292).
Some devices like PNP0A03 have 0xd00-0xffff and 0x0-0xcf7 as IO producer
resources.

Before correcting "address resources" parsing, it was seen as memory and was
harmless, because nobody tried to reserve this memory range as it should be
IO.

With the correction it become IO resources, and make failed all others device
that want to register IO in this range and use pnp layer (like a ISA sound
card).

The solution is to ignore producer resources

[PATCH] reiserfs_write_full_page() should not get_block past eof

reiserfs_write_full_page does zero bytes in the file past eof, but it may
call get_block on those buffers as well.  On machines where the page size
is larger than the blocksize, this can result in mmaped files incorrectly
growing up to a block boundary during writepage.

The fix is to avoid calling get_block for any blocks that are entirely past
eof

13 years ago[PATCH] Fix BeFS slab corruption
Diego Calleja [Sat, 5 Aug 2006 19:14:55 +0000]
[PATCH] Fix BeFS slab corruption

In bugzilla #6941, Jens Kilian reported:

"The function befs_utf2nls (in fs/befs/linuxvfs.c) writes a 0 byte past the
end of a block of memory allocated via kmalloc(), leading to memory
corruption.  This happens only for filenames which are pure ASCII and a
multiple of 4 bytes in length.  [...]

Without DEBUG_SLAB, this leads to further corruption and hard lockups; I
believe this is the bug which has made kernels later than 2.6.8 unusable
for me.  (This must be due to changes in memory management, the bug has
been in the BeFS driver since the time it was introduced (AFAICT).)

Steps to reproduce:
Create a directory (in BeOS, naturally :-) with files named, e.g.,
"1", "22", "333", "4444", ...  Mount it in Linux and do an "ls" or "find""

This patch implements the suggested fix. Credits to Jens Kilian for
debugging the problem and finding the right fix.

If we don't find the item we are lookng for, we allocate a new one, and
then grab the lock again and search to see if it has been added while we
did the alloc.  If it had been added we need to 'cache_put' the newly
created item that we are never going to use.  But as it hasn't been
initialised properly, putting it can cause an oops.

So move the ->init call earlier to that it will always be fully initilised
if we have to put it.

Andrew Morton [Sat, 5 Aug 2006 19:14:25 +0000]
[PATCH] fadvise() make POSIX_FADV_NOREUSE a no-op

The POSIX_FADV_NOREUSE hint means "the application will use this range of the
file a single time".  It seems to be intended that the implementation will use
this hint to perform drop-behind of that part of the file when the application
gets around to reading or writing it.

However for reasons which aren't obvious (or sane?) I mapped
POSIX_FADV_NOREUSE onto POSIX_FADV_WILLNEED.  ie: it does readahead.

That's daft.  So for now, make POSIX_FADV_NOREUSE a no-op.

This is a non-back-compatible change.  If someone was using POSIX_FADV_NOREUSE
to perform readahead, they lose.  The likelihood is low.

If/when we later implement POSIX_FADV_NOREUSE things will get interesting - to
do it fully we'll need to maintain file offset/length ranges and peform all
sorts of complex tricks, and managing the lifetime of those ranges' data
structures will be interesting..

A sensible implementation would probably ignore the file range and would
simply mark the entire file as needing some form of drop-behind treatment.
