[PATCH] kernel-doc for kernel/dma.c

Add kernel-doc function headers in kernel/dma.c and use it in DocBook.

Clean up kernel-doc in mca_dma.h (the colon (':') represents a
section header).

keios [Tue, 3 Oct 2006 08:13:49 +0000]
[PATCH] low performance of lib/sort.c

It is a non-standard heap-sort algorithm implementation because the index
of child node is wrong .  The sort function still outputs right result, but
the performance is O( n * ( log(n) + 1 ) ) , about 10% ~ 20% worse than
standard algorithm.

Franck Bui-Huu [Tue, 3 Oct 2006 08:13:48 +0000]
[PATCH] Create kallsyms_lookup_size_offset()

Some uses of kallsyms_lookup() do not need to find out the name of a symbol
and its module's name it belongs.  This is specially true in arch specific
code, which needs to unwind the stack to show the back trace during oops
(mips is an example).  In this specific case, we just need to retreive the
function's size and the offset of the active intruction inside it.

Adds a new entry "kallsyms_lookup_size_offset()" This new entry does
exactly the same as kallsyms_lookup() but does not require any buffers to
store any names.

It returns 0 if it fails otherwise 1.

13 years ago[PATCH] VFS: Make filldir_t and struct kstat deal in 64-bit inode numbers
David Howells [Tue, 3 Oct 2006 08:13:46 +0000]
[PATCH] VFS: Make filldir_t and struct kstat deal in 64-bit inode numbers

These patches make the kernel pass 64-bit inode numbers internally when
communicating to userspace, even on a 32-bit system.  They are required
because some filesystems have intrinsic 64-bit inode numbers: NFS3+ and XFS
for example.  The 64-bit inode numbers are then propagated to userspace
automatically where the arch supports it.

Problems have been seen with userspace (eg: ld.so) using the 64-bit inode
number returned by stat64() or getdents64() to differentiate files, and
failing because the 64-bit inode number space was compressed to 32-bits, and
so overlaps occur.

This patch:

Make filldir_t take a 64-bit inode number and struct kstat carry a 64-bit
inode number so that 64-bit inode numbers can be passed back to userspace.

The stat functions then returns the full 64-bit inode number where
available and where possible.  If it is not possible to represent the inode
number supplied by the filesystem in the field provided by userspace, then
error EOVERFLOW will be issued.

Similarly, the getdents/readdir functions now pass the full 64-bit inode
number to userspace where possible, returning EOVERFLOW instead when a
directory entry is encountered that can't be properly represented.

Note that this means that some inodes will not be stat'able on a 32-bit
system with old libraries where they were before - but it does mean that
there will be no ambiguity over what a 32-bit inode number refers to.

Note similarly that directory scans may be cut short with an error on a
32-bit system with old libraries where the scan would work before for the
same reasons.

It is judged unlikely that this situation will occur because modern glibc
uses 64-bit capable versions of stat and getdents class functions
exclusively, and that older systems are unlikely to encounter
unrepresentable inode numbers anyway.

Krishna Kumar [Fri, 29 Sep 2006 18:51:49 +0000]
RDMA/cma: Fix device removal race

The race is as follows:

A process : cma_process_remove() calls cma_remove_id_dev(),
    which sets id state to CMA_DEVICE_REMOVAL and
    calls wait_event(dev_remove).

B process : cma_req_handler() had incremented dev_remove,
    and calls cma_acquire_ib_dev() and on failure
    calls cma_release_remove(), which does a
    wake_up of cma_process_remove(). Then
    cma_req_handler() calls rdma_destroy_id();

A Process : cma_remove_id_dev() gets woken and checks the
    state of id, and since it is still (wrongly)
    CMA_DEVICE_REMOVAL, it calls notify_user(id)
    and if that fails, the caller - cma_process_remove()
    calls rdma_destroy_id(id). Two processes can
    call rdma_destroy_id(), resulting in one
    de-referencing kfreed id_priv.

Fix is for process B to set CMA_DESTROYING in cma_req_handler()
so that process A will return instead of doing a rdma_destroy_id().

Revert Andrew Morton's patch to temporarily hack around the lack of a
declaration of sigset_t in linux/compat.h to make the block-disablement
patches build on IA64.  This got accidentally pushed to Linus and should
be fixed in a different manner.

Also make linux/compat.h #include asm/signal.h to gain a definition of
sigset_t so that it can externally declare sigset_from_compat().

This has been compile-tested for i386, x86_64, ia64, mips, mips64, frv, ppc and
ppc64 and run-tested on frv.

Cedric Le Goater [Mon, 2 Oct 2006 09:19:00 +0000]
[PATCH] replace cad_pid by a struct pid

There are a few places in the kernel where the init task is signaled.  The
ctrl+alt+del sequence is one them.  It kills a task, usually init, using a
cached pid (cad_pid).

This patch replaces the pid_t by a struct pid to avoid pid wrap around
problem.  The struct pid is initialized at boot time in init() and can be
modified through systctl with

/proc/sys/kernel/cad_pid

[ I haven't found any distro using it ? ]

It also introduces a small helper routine kill_cad_pid() which is used
where it seemed ok to use cad_pid instead of pid 1.

Otherwise, we don't care if ->parent/->real_parent changes under us.

[PATCH] proc: Remove the hard coded inode numbers

The hard coded inode numbers in proc currently limit its maintainability,
its flexibility, and what can be done with the rest of system.  /proc limits
pid-max to 32768 on 32 bit systems it limits fd-max to 32768 on all systems,
and placing the pid in the inode number really gets in the way of implementing
subdirectories of per process information.

Ever since people started adding to the middle of the file type enumeration we
haven't been maintaing the historical inode numbers, all we have really
succeeded in doing is keeping the pid in the proc inode number.  The pid is
already available in the directory name so no information is lost removing it
from the inode number.

So if something in user space cares if we remove the inode number from the
/proc inode it is almost certainly broken.

Eric W. Biederman [Mon, 2 Oct 2006 09:18:48 +0000]
[PATCH] proc: Make the generation of the self symlink table driven

This patch generalizes the concept of files in /proc that are related to
processes but live in the root directory of /proc

Ideally this would reuse infrastructure from the rest of the process specific
parts of proc but unfortunately security_task_to_inode must not be called on
files that are not strictly per process.  security_task_to_inode really needs
to be reexamined as the security label can change in important places that we
are not currently catching, but I'm not certain that simplifies this problem.

By at least matching the structure of the rest of proc we get more idiom reuse
and it becomes easier to spot problems in the way things are put together.

Later things like /proc/mounts are likely to be moved into proc_base as well.
If union mounts are ever supported we may be able to make /proc a union mount,
and properly split it into 2 filesystems.

so that should take care of sh64 at least.

unistd.h header file.  I don't have cross-compilers for any of these
architectures, so the patch is untested with the exception of i386.

Most architectures can probably implement this in a nicer way in assembly or
by combining it with the sys_execve implementation itself, but this should do
it for now.

Arnd Bergmann [Mon, 2 Oct 2006 09:18:31 +0000]
[PATCH] rename the provided execve functions to kernel_execve

Some architectures provide an execve function that does not set errno, but
instead returns the result code directly.  Rename these to kernel_execve to
get the right semantics there.  Moreover, there is no reasone for any of these
architectures to still provide __KERNEL_SYSCALLS__ or _syscallN macros, so
remove these right away.

Arnd Bergmann [Mon, 2 Oct 2006 09:18:26 +0000]
[PATCH] introduce kernel_execve

The use of execve() in the kernel is dubious, since it relies on the
__KERNEL_SYSCALLS__ mechanism that stores the result in a global errno
variable.  As a first step of getting rid of this, change all users to a
global kernel_execve function that returns a proper error code.

This function is a terrible hack, and a later patch removes it again after the
kernel syscalls are gone.

when new nsproxy (new_ns) is created pointers to namespaces (ipc, uts) are
copied from the old nsproxy.  Later in copy_utsname, copy_ipcs, etc.
according namespaces are get-ed.  On error path needed namespaces are
put-ed, so there's no need to put new nsproxy itelf as it woud cause
putting namespaces for the second time.

The logic in proc_do_string is worth re-using without passing in a

[PATCH] knfsd: make rpc threads pools numa aware

Actually implement multiple pools.  On NUMA machines, allocate a svc_pool per
NUMA node; on SMP a svc_pool per CPU; otherwise a single global pool.  Enqueue
sockets on the svc_pool corresponding to the CPU on which the socket bh is run
(i.e.  the NIC interrupt CPU).  Threads have their cpu mask set to limit them
to the CPUs in the svc_pool that owns them.

This is the patch that allows an Altix to scale NFS traffic linearly
beyond 4 CPUs and 4 NICs.

Incorporates changes and feedback from Neil Brown, Trond Myklebust, and
Christoph Hellwig.

[PATCH] knfsd: split svc_serv into pools

Split out the list of idle threads and pending sockets from svc_serv into a
new svc_pool structure, and allocate a fixed number (in this patch, 1) of
pools per svc_serv.  The new structure contains a lock which takes over
several of the duties of svc_serv->sv_lock, which is now relegated to
protecting only sv_tempsocks, sv_permsocks, and sv_tmpcnt in svc_serv.

The point is to move the hottest fields out of svc_serv and into svc_pool,
allowing a following patch to arrange for a svc_pool per NUMA node or per CPU.
 This is a major step towards making the NFS server NUMA-friendly.

Greg Banks [Mon, 2 Oct 2006 09:17:54 +0000]
[PATCH] knfsd: move tempsock aging to a timer

Following are 11 patches from Greg Banks which combine to make knfsd more
Numa-aware.  They reduce hitting on 'global' data structures, and create some
data-structures that can be node-local.

knfsd threads are bound to a particular node, and the thread to handle a new
request is chosen from the threads that are attach to the node that received
the interrupt.

The distribution of threads across nodes can be controlled by a new file in
the 'nfsd' filesystem, though the default approach of an even spread is
probably fine for most sites.

Some (old) numbers that show the efficacy of these patches: N == number of
NICs == number of CPUs == nmber of clients.  Number of NUMA nodes == N/2

N Throughput, MiB/s CPU usage, % (max=N*100)
Before After Before After
--- ------ ---- ----- -----
4 312 435 350 228
6 500 656 501 418
8 562 804 690 589

This patch:

Move the aging of RPC/TCP connection sockets from the main svc_recv() loop to
a timer which uses a mark-and-sweep algorithm every 6 minutes.  This reduces
the amount of work that needs to be done in the main RPC loop and the length
of time we need to hold the (effectively global) svc_serv->sv_lock.

[PATCH] knfsd: Correctly handle error condition from lockd_up

If lockd_up fails - what should we expect?  Do we have to later call
lockd_down?

Well the nfs client thinks "no", the nfs server thinks "yes".  lockd thinks
"yes".

The only answer that really makes sense is "no" !!

So:
  Make lockd_up only increment  nlmsvc_users on success.
  Make nfsd handle errors from lockd_up properly.
  Make sure lockd_up(0) never fails when lockd is running
    so that the 'reclaimer' call to lockd_up doesn't need to
    be error checked.

13 years ago[PATCH] knfsd: allow sockets to be passed to nfsd via 'portlist'

[PATCH] knfsd: allow sockets to be passed to nfsd via 'portlist'

Userspace should create and bind a socket (but not connectted) and write the
'fd' to portlist.  This will cause the nfs server to listen on that socket.

To close a socket, the name of the socket - as read from 'portlist' can be
written to 'portlist' with a preceding '-'.

13 years ago[PATCH] knfsd: define new nfsdfs file: portlist - contains list of ports
NeilBrown [Mon, 2 Oct 2006 09:17:47 +0000]
[PATCH] knfsd: define new nfsdfs file: portlist - contains list of ports

This file will list all ports that nfsd has open.
Default when TCP enabled will be
   ipv4 udp 0.0.0.0 2049
   ipv4 tcp 0.0.0.0 2049

Later, the list of ports will be settable.

'portlist' chosen rather than 'ports', to avoid unnecessary confusion with
non-mainline patches which created 'ports' with different semantics.

[PATCH] knfsd: separate out some parts of nfsd_svc, which start nfs servers

Separate out the code for creating a new service, and for creating initial
sockets.

Some of these new functions will have multiple callers soon.
