14 years ago[TCP]: Clear stale pred_flags when snd_wnd changes
Herbert Xu [Thu, 27 Oct 2005 08:47:46 +0000]
[TCP]: Clear stale pred_flags when snd_wnd changes

This bug is responsible for causing the infamous "Treason uncloaked"
messages that's been popping up everywhere since the printk was added.
It has usually been blamed on foreign operating systems.  However,
some of those reports implicate Linux as both systems are running
Linux or the TCP connection is going across the loopback interface.

In fact, there really is a bug in the Linux TCP header prediction code
that's been there since at least 2.1.8.  This bug was tracked down with
help from Dale Blount.

The effect of this bug ranges from harmless "Treason uncloaked"
messages to hung/aborted TCP connections.  The details of the bug
and fix is as follows.

When snd_wnd is updated, we only update pred_flags if
tcp_fast_path_check succeeds.  When it fails (for example,
when our rcvbuf is used up), we will leave pred_flags with
an out-of-date snd_wnd value.

When the out-of-date pred_flags happens to match the next incoming
packet we will again hit the fast path and use the current snd_wnd
which will be wrong.

In the case of the treason messages, it just happens that the snd_wnd
cached in pred_flags is zero while tp->snd_wnd is non-zero.  Therefore
when a zero-window packet comes in we incorrectly conclude that the
window is non-zero.

In fact if the peer continues to send us zero-window pure ACKs we
will continue making the same mistake.  It's only when the peer
transmits a zero-window packet with data attached that we get a
chance to snap out of it.  This is what triggers the treason
message at the next retransmit timeout.

[PATCH] Fix HFS+ to free up the space when a file is deleted.

fsck_hfs reveals lots of temporary files accumulating in the hidden

there may be a bug in the Linux hfsplus implementation which causes this to
happen even when the files are not in use.  It looks like the "opencnt"
field is never initialized as (I think) it should be in hfsplus_read_inode.
 This means that a file can appear to be still in use when in fact it has
been closed.  This patch seems to fix it for me.

[PATCH] posix-timers: fix posix_cpu_timer_set() vs run_posix_cpu_timers() race

This might be harmless, but looks like a race from code inspection (I
was unable to trigger it).  I must admit, I don't understand why we
can't return TIMER_RETRY after 'spin_unlock(&p->sighand->siglock)'
without doing bump_cpu_timer(), but this is what original code does.

posix_cpu_timer_set:

read_lock(&tasklist_lock);

spin_lock(&p->sighand->siglock);
list_del_init(&timer->it.cpu.entry);
spin_unlock(&p->sighand->siglock);

We are probaly deleting the timer from run_posix_cpu_timers's 'firing'
local list_head while run_posix_cpu_timers() does list_for_each_safe.

Various bad things can happen, for example we can just delete this timer
so that list_for_each() will not notice it and run_posix_cpu_timers()
will not reset '->firing' flag. In that case,

....

if (timer->it.cpu.firing) {

[PATCH] posix-timers: remove false BUG_ON() from run_posix_cpu_timers()

do_exit() clears ->it_##clock##_expires, but nothing prevents
another cpu to attach the timer to exiting process after that.

After exit_notify() does 'write_unlock_irq(&tasklist_lock)' and
before do_exit() calls 'schedule() local timer interrupt can find
tsk->exit_state != 0. If that state was EXIT_DEAD (or another cpu
does sys_wait4) interrupted task has ->signal == NULL.

At this moment exiting task has no pending cpu timers, they were cleaned
up in __exit_signal()->posix_cpu_timers_exit{,_group}(), so we can just
return from irq.

2. run_posix_cpu_timers() collects expired timers into local list under

[PATCH] inotify/idr leak fix

Fix a bug which was reported and diagnosed by
Stefan Jones <stefan.jones@churchillrandoms.co.uk>

IDR trees include a cache of idr_layer objects.  There's no way to destroy
this cache, so when we discard an overall idr tree we end up leaking some
memory.

Add and use idr_destroy() for this.  v9fs and infiniband also need to use
idr_destroy() to avoid leaks.

Or, we make the cache global, like radix_tree_preload().  Which is probably
better.  Later.

[NEIGH] Fix timer leak in neigh_changeaddr

neigh_changeaddr attempts to delete neighbour timers without setting
nud_state.  This doesn't work because the timer may have already fired
when we acquire the write lock in neigh_changeaddr.  The result is that
the timer may keep firing for quite a while until the entry reaches
NEIGH_FAILED.

It should be setting the nud_state straight away so that if the timer
has already fired it can simply exit once we relinquish the lock.

In fact, this whole function is simply duplicating the logic in
neigh_ifdown which in turn is already doing the right thing when
it comes to deleting timers and setting nud_state.

So all we have to do is take that code out and put it into a common
function and make both neigh_changeaddr and neigh_ifdown call it.

AMD recently discovered that on some hardware, there is a race condition
possible when a C-state change request goes onto the bus at the same
time as a P-state change request.

Both requests happen, but the southbridge hardware only acknowledges the
C-state change.  The PowerNow! driver is then stuck in a loop, waiting
for the P-state change acknowledgement.  The driver eventually times
out, but can no longer perform P-state changes.

It turns out the solution is to resend the P-state change, which the
southbridge will acknowledge normally.

[PATCH] ppc64: Fix pages marked dirty abusively

While working on 64K pages, I found this little buglet in our
update_mmu_cache() implementation.

The code calls __hash_page() passing it an "access" parameter (the type
of access that triggers the hash) containing the bits _PAGE_RW and
_PAGE_USER of the linux PTE.  The latter is useless in this case and the
former is wrong.  In fact, if we have a writeable PTE and we pass
_PAGE_RW to hash_page(), it will set _PAGE_DIRTY (since we track dirty
that way, by hash faulting !dirty) which is not what we want.

In fact, the correct fix is to always pass 0. That means that only
read-only or already dirty read write PTEs will be preloaded. The
(hopefully rare) case of a non dirty read write PTE can't be preloaded
this way, it will have to fault in hash_page on the actual access.

[ARM] 3027/1: BAST - reduce NAND timings slightly

Patch from Ben Dooks

The current Simtec BAST nand area timings are a little
too slow to be obtained by a 2410 running at 266MHz,
so reduce the timings slightly to bring them into the

Herbert Xu [Sun, 16 Oct 2005 11:08:46 +0000]
[DCCP]: Make dccp_write_xmit always free the packet

icmp_send doesn't use skb->sk at all so even if skb->sk has already
been freed it can't cause crash there (it would've crashed somewhere
else first, e.g., ip_queue_xmit).

I found a double-free on an skb that could explain this though.
dccp_sendmsg and dccp_write_xmit are a little confused as to what
should free the packet when something goes wrong.  Sometimes they
both go for the ball and end up in each other's way.

This patch makes dccp_write_xmit always free the packet no matter
what.  This makes sense since dccp_transmit_skb which in turn comes
from the fact that ip_queue_xmit always frees the packet.

Yasunori Goto [Wed, 19 Oct 2005 22:52:18 +0000]
[PATCH] swiotlb: make sure initial DMA allocations really are in DMA memory

This introduces a limit parameter to the core bootmem allocator; The new
parameter indicates that physical memory allocated by the bootmem
allocator should be within the requested limit.

We also introduce alloc_bootmem_low_pages_limit, alloc_bootmem_node_limit,
alloc_bootmem_low_pages_node_limit apis, but alloc_bootmem_low_pages_limit
is the only api used for swiotlb.

The existing alloc_bootmem_low_pages() api could instead have been
changed and made to pass right limit to the core allocator.  But that
would make the patch more intrusive for 2.6.14, as other arches use
alloc_bootmem_low_pages().  We may be done that post 2.6.14 as a
cleanup.

With this, swiotlb gets memory within 4G for both x86_64 and ia64
arches.

NeilBrown [Thu, 20 Oct 2005 04:23:47 +0000]
[PATCH] Three one-liners in md.c

The main problem fixes is that in certain situations stopping md arrays may
take longer than you expect, or may require multiple attempts.  This would
only happen when resync/recovery is happening.

This patch fixes three vaguely related bugs.

1/ The recent change to use kthreads got the setting of the
   process name wrong.  This fixes it.
2/ The recent change to use kthreads lost the ability for
   md threads to be signalled with SIG_KILL.  This restores that.
3/ There is a long standing bug in that if:
    - An array needs recovery (onto a hot-spare) and
    - The recovery is being blocked because some other array being
       recovered shares a physical device and
    - The recovery thread is killed with SIG_KILL
   Then the recovery will appear to have completed with no IO being
   done, which can cause data corruption.
   This patch makes sure that incomplete recovery will be treated as
   incomplete.

Note that any kernel affected by bug 2 will not suffer the problem of bug
3, as the signal can never be delivered.  Thus the current 2.6.14-rc
kernels are not susceptible to data corruption.  Note also that if arrays
are shutdown (with "mdadm -S" or "raidstop") then the problem doesn't
occur.  It only happens if a SIGKILL is independently delivered as done by
'init' when shutting down.

[PATCH] Fix cpu timers exit deadlock and races

Oleg Nesterov reported an SMP deadlock.  If there is a running timer
tracking a different process's CPU time clock when the process owning
the timer exits, we deadlock on tasklist_lock in posix_cpu_timer_del via
exit_itimers.

That code was using tasklist_lock to check for a race with __exit_signal
being called on the timer-target task and clearing its ->signal.
However, there is actually no such race.  __exit_signal will have called
posix_cpu_timers_exit and posix_cpu_timers_exit_group before it does
that.  Those will clear those k_itimer's association with the dying
task, so posix_cpu_timer_del will return early and never reach the code
in question.

In addition, posix_cpu_timer_del called from exit_itimers during execve
or directly from timer_delete in the process owning the timer can race
with an exiting timer-target task to cause a double put on timer-target
task struct.  Make sure we always access cpu_timers lists with sighand

a faulted address falls with in size for the hugetlb file backing it.

  I'm using the Vesa FB driver.  When the machine has been idle for some
  time and the driver attempts to powerdown the display, rather than the
  display going blank, it goes gray with several strange lines.  When I
  hit the "shift" key or other-wise wake up the display, the old video
  state is not fully restored..."

vesafb recently added a blank method which has only 2 states, powerup and
powerdown.  The powerdown state is used for all blanking levels, but in his
case, powerdown does not work correctly for higher levels of display
powersaving. Thus, for intermediate power levels, use software blanking,
and use only hardware blanking for an explicit powerdown.

Add some basic .gitignore files

This still leaves driver and architecture-specific subdirectories alone,
but gets rid of the bulk of the "generic" generated files that we should
ignore.

14 years ago[ARM] 3021/1: Interrupt 0 bug fix for ixp4xx
Kenneth Tan [Tue, 18 Oct 2005 06:53:35 +0000]
[ARM] 3021/1: Interrupt 0 bug fix for ixp4xx

Patch from Kenneth Tan

The get_irqnr_and_base subroutine of ixp4xx does not take interrupt 0 condition into account properly. We should not perform "subs" here. The Z flag will be set when interrupt 0 occur, which resulting "movne r1, sp" in the caller routine (irq_handler) not being executed.

When interrupt 0 occur:
o if CONFIG_CPU_IXP46X is not set, "subs" will set the Z flag and return
o if CONFIG_CPU_IXP46X is set, codes in upper interrupt handling will be trigerred. But since this is not supper interrupt, the "cmp" in the upper interrupt handling portion will set the Z flag and return
