9 years agox86: Make sure get_user_desc() doesn't sign extend.
Chris Lalancette [Thu, 5 Nov 2009 10:47:08 +0000]
x86: Make sure get_user_desc() doesn't sign extend.

The current implementation of get_user_desc() sign extends the return
value because of integer promotion rules.  For the most part, this
doesn't matter, because the top bit of base2 is usually 0.  If, however,
that bit is 1, then the entire value will be 0xffff...  which is
probably not what the caller intended.

This patch casts the entire thing to unsigned before returning, which
generates almost the same assembly as the current code but replaces the
final "cltq" (sign extend) with a "mov %eax %eax" (zero-extend).  This
fixes booting certain guests under KVM.

m32r: add NOTES to vmlinux.lds.S to remove .note.gnu.build-id section

Building with --build-id option, .note.gnu.build-id section is added
to vmlinux.bin.  But some old buggy binutils creates a huge vmlinux.bin,
and a bootloader fails to boot its zImage as well.

This patch adds a NOTES macro to a linker script vmlinux.ld.S to put
.note.gnu.build-id section into .note section.
Then, the .note section will be removed, because "-R .note" option is
specified in OBJCOPYFLAGS to make a vmlinux.bin binary.

+5, ... Both a and b are sequential read, so they can open idle window.
a reads a sector s and goes to idle window and wakeup b. b reads sector
s+1, since in current implementation, cfq_should_preempt() thinks a and
b are cooperators, b will preempt a. b then reads sector s+1 and goes to
idle window and wakeup a. for the same reason, a will preempt b and
reads s+2. a and b will continue the circle. The circle will be very

9 years agoCorrect nr_processes() when CPUs have been unplugged
Ian Campbell [Tue, 3 Nov 2009 10:11:14 +0000]
Correct nr_processes() when CPUs have been unplugged

nr_processes() returns the sum of the per cpu counter process_counts for
all online CPUs. This counter is incremented for the current CPU on
fork() and decremented for the current CPU on exit(). Since a process
does not necessarily fork and exit on the same CPU the process_count for
an individual CPU can be either positive or negative and effectively has
no meaning in isolation.

Therefore calculating the sum of process_counts over only the online
CPUs omits the processes which were started or stopped on any CPU which
has since been unplugged. Only the sum of process_counts across all
possible CPUs has meaning.

The only caller of nr_processes() is proc_root_getattr() which
calculates the number of links to /proc as
        stat->nlink = proc_root.nlink + nr_processes();

You don't have to be all that unlucky for the nr_processes() to return a
negative value leading to a negative number of links (or rather, an
apparently enormous number of links). If this happens then you can get
failures where things like "ls /proc" start to fail because they got an
-EOVERFLOW from some stat() call.

Example with some debugging inserted to show what goes on:
        # ps haux|wc -l
        nr_processes: CPU0:     90
        nr_processes: CPU1:     1030
        nr_processes: CPU2:     -900
        nr_processes: CPU3:     -136
        nr_processes: TOTAL:    84
        proc_root_getattr. nlink 12 + nr_processes() 84 = 96
        84
        # echo 0 >/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/online
        # ps haux|wc -l
        nr_processes: CPU0:     85
        nr_processes: CPU2:     -901
        nr_processes: CPU3:     -137
        nr_processes: TOTAL:    -953
        proc_root_getattr. nlink 12 + nr_processes() -953 = -941
        75
        # stat /proc/
        nr_processes: CPU0:     84
        nr_processes: CPU2:     -901
        nr_processes: CPU3:     -137
        nr_processes: TOTAL:    -954
        proc_root_getattr. nlink 12 + nr_processes() -954 = -942
          File: `/proc/'
          Size: 0               Blocks: 0          IO Block: 1024   directory
        Device: 3h/3d   Inode: 1           Links: 4294966354
        Access: (0555/dr-xr-xr-x)  Uid: (    0/    root)   Gid: (    0/    root)

        Modify: 2009-11-03 09:06:55.000000000 +0000
        Change: 2009-11-03 09:06:55.000000000 +0000

I'm not 100% convinced that the per_cpu regions remain valid for offline
CPUs, although my testing suggests that they do. If not then I think the
correct solution would be to aggregate the process_count for a given CPU
into a global base value in cpu_down().

This bug appears to pre-date the transition to git and it looks like it
may even have been present in linux-2.6.0-test7-bk3 since it looks like
the code Rusty patched in http://lwn.net/Articles/64773/ was already
wrong.

Commit 0c570cdeb8fdfcb354a3e9cd81bfc6a09c19de0c
(PM / yenta: Fix cardbus suspend/resume regression) caused resume to
fail on systems with two CardBus bridges.  While the exact nature
of the failure is not known at the moment, it can be worked around by
splitting the yenta resume into an early part, executed during the
early phase of resume, that will only resume the socket and power it
up if there was a card in it during suspend, and a late part,
executed during "regular" resume, that will carry out all of the
remaining yenta resume operations.

introduced a potential NULL pointer dereference that

Linus Torvalds [Mon, 2 Nov 2009 18:15:27 +0000]
Revert "ext4: Remove journal_checksum mount option and enable it by default"

This reverts commit d0646f7b636d067d715fab52a2ba9c6f0f46b0d7, as
requested by Eric Sandeen.

It can basically cause an ext4 filesystem to miss recovery (and thus get
mounted with errors) if the journal checksum does not match.

Quoth Eric:

   "My hand-wavy hunch about what is happening is that we're finding a
    bad checksum on the last partially-written transaction, which is
    not surprising, but if we have a wrapped log and we're doing the
    initial scan for head/tail, and we abort scanning on that bad
    checksum, then we are essentially running an unrecovered filesystem.

    But that's hand-wavy and I need to go look at the code.

    We lived without journal checksums on by default until now, and at
    this point they're doing more harm than good, so we should revert
    the default-changing commit until we can fix it and do some good
    power-fail testing with the fixes in place."

9 years agomm: remove incorrect swap_count() from try_to_unuse()
Bo Liu [Mon, 2 Nov 2009 16:50:33 +0000]
mm: remove incorrect swap_count() from try_to_unuse()

In try_to_unuse(), swcount is a local copy of *swap_map, including the
SWAP_HAS_CACHE bit; but a wrong comparison against swap_count(*swap_map),
which masks off the SWAP_HAS_CACHE bit, succeeded where it should fail.

That had the effect of resetting the mm from which to start searching
for the next swap page, to an irrelevant mm instead of to an mm in which
this swap page had been found: which may increase search time by ~20%.
But we're used to swapoff being slow, so never noticed the slowdown.

Remove that one spurious use of swap_count(): Bo Liu thought it merely
redundant, Hugh rewrote the description since it was measurably wrong.

9 years agoi915: fix intel graphics suspend breakage due to resume/lid event confusion
Linus Torvalds [Mon, 2 Nov 2009 17:29:55 +0000]
i915: fix intel graphics suspend breakage due to resume/lid event confusion

In commit c1c7af60892070e4b82ad63bbfb95ae745056de0 ("drm/i915: force
mode set at lid open time") the intel graphics driver was taught to
restore the LVDS mode on lid open.

That caused problems with interaction with the suspend/resume code,
which commonly runs at the same time (suspend is often caused by the lid
close event, while lid open is commonly a resume event), which was
worked around with in commit 06891e27a9b5dba5268bb80e41a283f51335afe7
("drm/i915: fix suspend/resume breakage in lid notifier").

However, in the meantime the lid event code had also grown a user event
notifier (commit 06324194eee97a51b5f172270df49ec39192d6cc: "drm/i915:
generate a KMS uevent at lid open/close time"), and now _that_ causes
problems with suspend/resume and some versions of Xorg reacting to those
uevents by setting the mode.

So this effectively reverts that commit 06324194ee, and makes the lid
open protection logic against suspend/resume more explicit.  This fixes
at least one laptop. See

http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14484

for more details.

9 years agoARM: ensure initial page tables are setup for SMP systems
Russell King [Sun, 1 Nov 2009 17:44:24 +0000]
ARM: ensure initial page tables are setup for SMP systems

Mapping the same memory using two different attributes (memory
type, shareability, cacheability) is unpredictable.  During boot,
we encounter a situation when we're updating the kernel's page
tables which can lead to dirty cache lines existing in the cache
which are subsequently missed.  This causes stack corruption,
and therefore a crash.

Therefore, ensure that the shared and cacheability settings
matches the configuration that will be used later; this together
with the restriction in early_cachepolicy() ensures that we won't
create a mismatch during boot.

ARM: 5776/1: Check compiler version and EABI support when adding ARM unwind support.

ARM unwind is known to compile only with EABI and not-buggy compilers.
The problem is not the unwinding information but the -fno-frame-pointer
option added as a result of !CONFIG_FRAME_POINTER.  Now we check the
compiler and raise a #warning in case of wrong compiler.
