Lockdep reports a circular locking dependency in the hibernate code
because
 - during system boot hibernate code (from an initcall) locks pm_mutex
   and then a sysfs buffer mutex via name_to_dev_t
 - during regular operation hibernate code locks pm_mutex under a

The deadlock can never happen because during initcall invocation nothing
can write to sysfs yet. This removes the lockdep report by marking the
initcall locking as being in a different class.

11 years ago__do_IRQ does not check IRQ_DISABLED when IRQ_PER_CPU is set
Russ Anderson [Thu, 15 Nov 2007 01:00:15 +0000]
__do_IRQ does not check IRQ_DISABLED when IRQ_PER_CPU is set

In __do_IRQ(), the normal case is that IRQ_DISABLED is checked and if set
the handler (handle_IRQ_event()) is not called.

Earlier in __do_IRQ(), if IRQ_PER_CPU is set the code does not check
IRQ_DISABLED and calls the handler even though IRQ_DISABLED is set.  This
behavior seems unintentional.

One user encountering this behavior is the CPE handler (in
arch/ia64/kernel/mca.c).  When the CPE handler encounters too many CPEs
(such as a solid single bit error), it sets up a polling timer and disables
the CPE interrupt (to avoid excessive overhead logging the stream of single
bit errors).  disable_irq_nosync() is called which sets IRQ_DISABLED.  The
IRQ_PER_CPU flag was previously set (in ia64_mca_late_init()).  The net
result is the CPE handler gets called even though it is marked disabled.

If the behavior of not checking IRQ_DISABLED when IRQ_PER_CPU is set is
intentional, it would be worthy of a comment describing the intended
behavior.  disable_irq_nosync() does call chip->disable() to provide a
chipset specifiec interface for disabling the interrupt, which avoids this
issue when used.

pidns: Place under CONFIG_EXPERIMENTAL

This is my trivial patch to swat innumerable little bugs with a single
blow.

After some intensive review (my apologies for not having gotten to this
sooner) what we have looks like a good base to build on with the current
pid namespace code but it is not complete, and it is still much to simple
to find issues where the kernel does the wrong thing outside of the initial
pid namespace.

Until the dust settles and we are certain we have the ABI and the
implementation is as correct as humanly possible let's keep process ID
namespaces behind CONFIG_EXPERIMENTAL.

Allowing us the option of fixing any ABI or other bugs we find as long as
they are minor.

Allowing users of the kernel to avoid those bugs simply by ensuring their
kernel does not have support for multiple pid namespaces.

Arjan van de Ven [Thu, 15 Nov 2007 01:00:10 +0000]
mark sys_open/sys_read exports unused

sys_open / sys_read were used in the early 1.2 days to load firmware from
disk inside drivers.  Since 2.0 or so this was deprecated behavior, but
several drivers still were using this.  Since a few years we have a
request_firmware() API that implements this in a nice, consistent way.
Only some old ISA sound drivers (pre-ALSA) still straggled along for some
time....  however with commit c2b1239a9f22f19c53543b460b24507d0e21ea0c the
last user is now gone.

This is a good thing, since using sys_open / sys_read etc for firmware is a
very buggy to dangerous thing to do; these operations put an fd in the
process file descriptor table....  which then can be tampered with from
other threads for example.  For those who don't want the firmware loader,
filp_open()/vfs_read are the better APIs to use, without this security
issue.

The patch below marks sys_open and sys_read unused now that they're
really not used anymore, and for deletion in the 2.6.25 timeframe.

Christian Borntraeger [Thu, 15 Nov 2007 01:00:05 +0000]
rd: fix data corruption on memory pressure

We have seen ramdisk based install systems, where some pages of mapped
libraries and programs were suddendly zeroed under memory pressure.  This
should not happen, as the ramdisk avoids freeing its pages by keeping them
dirty all the time.

It turns out that there is a case, where the VM makes a ramdisk page clean,
without telling the ramdisk driver.  On memory pressure shrink_zone runs
and it starts to run shrink_active_list.  There is a check for
buffer_heads_over_limit, and if true, pagevec_strip is called.
pagevec_strip calls try_to_release_page.  If the mapping has no releasepage
callback, try_to_free_buffers is called.  try_to_free_buffers has now a
special logic for some file systems to make a dirty page clean, if all
buffers are clean.  Thats what happened in our test case.

The simplest solution is to provide a noop-releasepage callback for the
ramdisk driver.  This avoids try_to_free_buffers for ramdisk pages.

serial: only use PNP IRQ if it's valid

  There is a "ttyS1 irq is -1" problem observed on tiger4 which cause the
  serial port broken.

  It is because that there is __no__ ACPI IRQ resource assigned for the
  serial port.  So the value of the IRQ for the port is never changed since it

If PNP supplies a valid IRQ, use it.  Otherwise, leave port.irq == 0, which

Firmware like PNPBIOS or ACPI can report the address space consumed by the
RTC.  The actual space consumed may be less than the size (RTC_IO_EXTENT)
assumed by the RTC driver.

The PNP core doesn't request resources yet, but I'd like to make it do so.
If/when it does, the RTC_IO_EXTENT request may fail, which prevents the RTC
driver from loading.

Since we only use the RTC index and data registers at RTC_PORT(0) and
RTC_PORT(1), we can fall back to requesting just enough space for those.

If the PNP core requests resources, this results in typical I/O port usage
like this:

    0070-0073 : 00:06 <-- PNP device 00:06 responds to 70-73
      0070-0071 : rtc <-- RTC driver uses only 70-71

instead of the current:

    0070-0077 : rtc <-- RTC_IO_EXTENT == 8

11 years agoreiserfs: don't drop PG_dirty when releasing sub-page-sized dirty file
Fengguang Wu [Thu, 15 Nov 2007 00:59:54 +0000]
reiserfs: don't drop PG_dirty when releasing sub-page-sized dirty file

This is not a new problem in 2.6.23-git17.  2.6.22/2.6.23 is buggy in the
same way.

Reiserfs could accumulate dirty sub-page-size files until umount time.
They cannot be synced to disk by pdflush routines or explicit `sync'
commands.  Only `umount' can do the trick.

The direct cause is: the dirty page's PG_dirty is wrongly _cleared_.
Call trace:
 [<ffffffff8027e920>] cancel_dirty_page+0xd0/0xf0
 [<ffffffff8816d470>] :reiserfs:reiserfs_cut_from_item+0x660/0x710

Fix the bug by removing the cancel_dirty_page() call. Tests show that
it causes no bad behaviors on various write sizes.

=== for the patient ===
Here are more detailed demonstrations of the problem.

1) the page has both PG_dirty(D)/PAGECACHE_TAG_DIRTY(d) after being written to;
   and then only PAGECACHE_TAG_DIRTY(d) remains after the file is closed.

Fixes to the BFS filesystem driver

I found a few bugs in the BFS driver.  Detailed description of the bugs as
well as the steps to reproduce the errors are given in the kernel bugzilla.
 Please follow these links for more information:

http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9363
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9364
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9365
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9366

This patch fixes the bugs described above.  Besides, the patch introduces
coding style changes to make the BFS driver conform to the requirements
specified for Linux kernel code.  Finally, I made a few cosmetic changes
such as removal of trivial debug output.

Also, the patch removes the fields `si_lf_ioff' and `si_lf_sblk' of the
in-core superblock structure.  These fields are initialized but never
actually used.

If you are wondering why I need BFS, here is the answer: I am using this
driver in the context of Linux kernel classes I am teaching in the Moscow
State University and in the International Institute of Information
Technology in Pune, India.

hugetlb: debit quota in alloc_huge_page

Now that quota is credited by free_huge_page(), calls to hugetlb_get_quota()
seem out of place.  The alloc/free API is unbalanced because we handle the
hugetlb_put_quota() but expect the caller to open-code hugetlb_get_quota().
Move the get inside alloc_huge_page to clean up this disparity.

This patch has been kept apart from the previous patch because of the somewhat
dodgy ERR_PTR() use herein.  Moving the quota logic means that
alloc_huge_page() has two failure modes.  Quota failure must result in a
SIGBUS while a standard allocation failure is OOM.  Unfortunately, ERR_PTR()
doesn't like the small positive errnos we have in VM_FAULT_* so they must be
negated before they are used.

Does anyone take issue with the way I am using PTR_ERR.  If so, what are your

11 years agohugetlb: fix quota management for private mappings
Adam Litke [Thu, 15 Nov 2007 00:59:38 +0000]
hugetlb: fix quota management for private mappings

The hugetlbfs quota management system was never taught to handle MAP_PRIVATE
mappings when that support was added.  Currently, quota is debited at page
instantiation and credited at file truncation.  This approach works correctly
for shared pages but is incomplete for private pages.  In addition to
hugetlb_no_page(), private pages can be instantiated by hugetlb_cow(); but
this function does not respect quotas.

Private huge pages are treated very much like normal, anonymous pages.  They
are not "backed" by the hugetlbfs file and are not stored in the mapping's
radix tree.  This means that private pages are invisible to
truncate_hugepages() so that function will not credit the quota.

This patch (based on a prototype provided by Ken Chen) moves quota crediting
for all pages into free_huge_page().  page->private is used to store a pointer
to the mapping to which this page belongs.  This is used to credit quota on
the appropriate hugetlbfs instance.

11 years agohugetlb: split alloc_huge_page into private and shared components
Adam Litke [Thu, 15 Nov 2007 00:59:37 +0000]
hugetlb: split alloc_huge_page into private and shared components

Hugetlbfs implements a quota system which can limit the amount of memory that
can be used by the filesystem.  Before allocating a new huge page for a file,
the quota is checked and debited.  The quota is then credited when truncating
the file.  I found a few bugs in the code for both MAP_PRIVATE and MAP_SHARED
mappings.  Before detailing the problems and my proposed solutions, we should
agree on a definition of quotas that properly addresses both private and
shared pages.  Since the purpose of quotas is to limit total memory
consumption on a per-filesystem basis, I argue that all pages allocated by the
fs (private and shared) should be charged against quota.

Private Mappings
================

The current code will debit quota for private pages sometimes, but will never
credit it.  At a minimum, this causes a leak in the quota accounting which
renders the accounting essentially useless as it is.  Shared pages have a one
to one mapping with a hugetlbfs file and are easy to account by debiting on
allocation and crediting on truncate.  Private pages are anonymous in nature
and have a many to one relationship with their hugetlbfs files (due to copy on
write).  Because private pages are not indexed by the mapping's radix tree,
thier quota cannot be credited at file truncation time.  Crediting must be
done when the page is unmapped and freed.

Shared Pages
============

I discovered an issue concerning the interaction between the MAP_SHARED
reservation system and quotas.  Since quota is not checked until page
instantiation, an over-quota mmap/reservation will initially succeed.  When
instantiating the first over-quota page, the program will receive SIGBUS.
This is inconsistent since the reservation is supposed to be a guarantee.  The
solution is to debit the full amount of quota at reservation time and credit
the unused portion when the reservation is released.

This patch series brings quotas back in line by making the following
modifications:
 * Private pages
   - Debit quota in alloc_huge_page()
   - Credit quota in free_huge_page()
 * Shared pages
   - Debit quota for entire reservation at mmap time
   - Credit quota for instantiated pages in free_huge_page()
   - Credit quota for unused reservation at munmap time

This patch:

The shared page reservation and dynamic pool resizing features have made the
allocation of private vs.  shared huge pages quite different.  By splitting
out the private/shared-specific portions of the process into their own
functions, readability is greatly improved.  alloc_huge_page now calls the
proper helper and performs common operations.

Adam Litke [Thu, 15 Nov 2007 00:59:33 +0000]
hugetlb: follow_hugetlb_page() for write access

When calling get_user_pages(), a write flag is passed in by the caller to
indicate if write access is required on the faulted-in pages.  Currently,
follow_hugetlb_page() ignores this flag and always faults pages for
read-only access.  This can cause data corruption because a device driver
that calls get_user_pages() with write set will not expect COW faults to
occur on the returned pages.

This patch passes the write flag down to follow_hugetlb_page() and makes
sure hugetlb_fault() is called with the right write_access parameter.

paride: pf driver fixes

The pf driver for parallel port floppy drives seems to be broken.  At least
with Imation SuperDisk with EPAT chip, the driver calls pi_connect() and
pi_disconnect after each transferred sector.  At least with EPAT, this
operation is very expensive - causes drive recalibration.  Thus, transferring
even a single byte (dd if=/dev/pf0 of=/dev/null bs=1 count=1) takes 20
seconds, making the driver useless.

The pf_next_buf() function seems to be broken as it returns 1 always (except
when pf_run is non-zero), causing the loop in do_pf_read_drq (and
do_pf_write_drq) to be executed only once.

The following patch fixes this problem.  It also fixes swapped descriptions in

11 years agoMigration: find correct vma in new_vma_page()
Lee Schermerhorn [Thu, 15 Nov 2007 00:59:10 +0000]
Migration: find correct vma in new_vma_page()

We hit the BUG_ON() in mm/rmap.c:vma_address() when trying to migrate via
mbind(MPOL_MF_MOVE) a non-anon region that spans multiple vmas.  For
anon-regions, we just fail to migrate any pages beyond the 1st vma in the
range.

This occurs because do_mbind() collects a list of pages to migrate by
calling check_range().  check_range() walks the task's mm, spanning vmas as
necessary, to collect the migratable pages into a list.  Then, do_mbind()
calls migrate_pages() passing the list of pages, a function to allocate new
pages based on vma policy [new_vma_page()], and a pointer to the first vma
of the range.

For each page in the list, new_vma_page() calls page_address_in_vma()
passing the page and the vma [first in range] to obtain the address to get
for alloc_page_vma().  The page address is needed to get interleaving
policy correct.  If the pages in the list come from multiple vmas,
eventually, new_page_address() will pass that page to page_address_in_vma()
with the incorrect vma.  For !PageAnon pages, this will result in a bug
check in rmap.c:vma_address().  For anon pages, vma_address() will just
return EFAULT and fail the migration.

This patch modifies new_vma_page() to check the return value from
page_address_in_vma().  If the return value is EFAULT, new_vma_page()
searchs forward via vm_next for the vma that maps the page--i.e., that does
not return EFAULT.  This assumes that the pages in the list handed to
migrate_pages() is in address order.  This is currently case.  The patch
documents this assumption in a new comment block for new_vma_page().

If new_vma_page() cannot locate the vma mapping the page in a forward
search in the mm, it will pass a NULL vma to alloc_page_vma().  This will
result in the allocation using the task policy, if any, else system default
policy.  This situation is unlikely, but the patch documents this behavior
with a comment.

Note, this patch results in restarting from the first vma in a multi-vma
range each time new_vma_page() is called.  If this is not acceptable, we
can make the vma argument a pointer, both in new_vma_page() and it's caller
unmap_and_move() so that the value held by the loop in migrate_pages()
always passes down the last vma in which a page was found.  This will
require changes to all new_page_t functions passed to migrate_pages().  Is
this necessary?

For this patch to work, we can't bug check in vma_address() for pages
outside the argument vma.  This patch removes the BUG_ON().  All other
callers [besides new_vma_page()] already check the return status.

Tested on x86_64, 4 node NUMA platform.

11 years agoRTCs: handle NVRAM better
David Brownell [Thu, 15 Nov 2007 00:58:30 +0000]
RTCs: handle NVRAM better

Several of the RTC drivers are exporting binary "nvram" files in sysfs.  Such
NVRAM (or on many systems, EEPROM) data is often initialized during system
manufacture to hold data about identity (serial numbers, Ethernet addresses,
etc), configuration, calibration, and so forth.

This patch improves integrity and security of those files:

  - Correctly initializes the size in one of the two cases where
    that was not yet being done.

  - Improves system security/integrity by making this state not
    be world-writable by default.

Letting arbitrary userspace code mangle such state by default is at least Not
A Good Thing; and it could sometimes be worse, depending on the particular
data that might be corrupted.  (I disregard the paranoiac "don't let anyone
read it either" approach.  Anyone storing passwords in such memory doesn't
really care about security.)

(Strictly speaking, the RTC clock should be tracking the POSIX epoch.  That's
not worth going into here.  Goofing timezones means clocks are wrong by many
hours; the POSIX-v-UTC differences just cost seconds.)

ACPI: Battery: remove cycle from battery removal.

get_property() should not call battery_update(), it also should call
get_status() only if battery is present to avoid cycle and oops.

11 years agoRevert "ext2/ext3/ext4: add block bitmap validation"
Linus Torvalds [Tue, 13 Nov 2007 16:07:31 +0000]
Revert "ext2/ext3/ext4: add block bitmap validation"

This reverts commit 7c9e69faa28027913ee059c285a5ea8382e24b5d, fixing up
conflicts in fs/ext4/balloc.c manually.

The cost of doing the bitmap validation on each lookup - even when the
bitmap is cached - is absolutely prohibitive.  We could, and probably
should, do it only when adding the bitmap to the buffer cache.  However,
right now we are better off just reverting it.

Peter Zijlstra measured the cost of this extra validation as a 85%
decrease in cached iozone, and while I had a patch that took it down to
just 17% by not being _quite_ so stupid in the validation, it was still
a big slowdown that could have been avoided by just doing it right.

[NETFILTER]: xt_time should not assume CONFIG_KTIME_SCALAR

It is not correct to assume one can get nsec from a ktime directly by
using .tv64 field.

[NET]: Move unneeded data to initdata section.

This patch reverts Eric's commit 2b008b0a8e96b726c603c5e1a5a7a509b5f61e35

It diets .text & .data section of the kernel if CONFIG_NET_NS is not set.
This is safe after list operations cleanup.

11 years ago[NET]: Cleanup pernet operation without CONFIG_NET_NS
Denis V. Lunev [Tue, 13 Nov 2007 11:23:21 +0000]
[NET]: Cleanup pernet operation without CONFIG_NET_NS

If CONFIG_NET_NS is not set, the only namespace is possible.

This patch removes list of pernet_operations and cleanups code a bit.
This list is not needed if there are no namespaces. We should just call
->init method.

Additionally, the ->exit will be called on module unloading only. This
case is safe - the code is not discarded. For the in/kernel code, ->exit
should never be called.
