tty: add 'active' sysfs attribute to tty0 and console device

tty: add 'active' sysfs attribute to tty0 and console device

Userspace can query the actual virtual console, and the configured
console devices behind /dev/tt0 and /dev/console.

The last entry in the list of devices is the active device, analog
to the console= kernel command line option.

The attribute supports poll(), which is raised when the virtual
console is changed or /dev/console is reconfigured.

Thomas Gleixner [Thu, 16 Dec 2010 13:06:35 +0000]
drivers: serial: apbuart: Handle OF failures gracefully

The apbuart driver depends on OF and relies on everything being
available. So if it's probed on a platform which has OF support, but
no device tree is available it crashes. Triggered by the upcoming x86
OF support in randconfig testing.

Further it's inconsistent vs. the probing and exiting from the
of_match loop.

Make it robust and consistent:

 - check the availablility of OF nodes before dereferencing
 - return -ENODEV when the device tree lookup fails
 - return -ENODEV when no uart port configuration is found
 - return -ENODEV when invalid uart port configuration is found

Remove the enum_done check while at it. Driver init functions are only
called once. Remove the pointless vendor and device queries as well.

8 years ago8250: fix uninitialized FIFOs
Ondrej Puzman [Sat, 4 Dec 2010 20:17:38 +0000]
8250: fix uninitialized FIFOs

I have found a bug in 8250.c driver which causes that 16550A uart FIFOs
are not turned on during initialization if they are manually configured
by setserial. UART is then working only as plain 16450 without FIFOs. On
systems with higher interrupt latency this causes buffer overruns and
loss of received data when using higher communication speeds.

I'm working for a company which produces industrial computers. These
devices typically contain high number (8 or more) of traditional 16550A
uarts - we use TL16C554A chips, but that is not much relevant. UARTs are
connected to the CPU by ISA bus (Celeron based devices) or LPC bus (Atom
based devices).

In the Linux the UARTs are using standard 8250.c driver and are
initialized using setserial command:
setserial /dev/ttyS4 uart 16550A port 0x3E0 irq 10 baud_base 115200

This executes the UART initialization through serial8250_startup()
function. At the beginning of the function up->capabilities is
initialized from uart_config:
 up->capabilities = uart_config[up->port.type].flags;
Please note that neither up->port.fifosize nor up->tx_loadsz is
initialized here!!

Later in the same function serial8250_clear_fifos() is called and
disables FIFOs. The above comment says that they will be reenabled in
set_termios (they won't ...)

After serial8250_startup() the serial8250_set_termios() is called. In
this function the following check fails because up->port.fifosize is
zero because it is not initialized correctly.

        if (up->capabilities & UART_CAP_FIFO && up->port.fifosize > 1) {
                if (baud < 2400)
                        fcr = UART_FCR_ENABLE_FIFO | UART_FCR_TRIGGER_1;
                        fcr = uart_config[up->port.type].fcr;

fcr variable remains zero and in the end the FCR register is set to zero
which results in disabled FIFOs even if the UART type is 16550A. This is
also true for other types of UARTs with FIFOs.

If the UART is autoconfigured via 'setserial /dev/ttySx autoconfig' then
port.fifosize and tx_loadsz are initialized correctly in the
autoconfig() function and the UART is working correctly then.

I checked the source codes and I can say that this bug is present in
2.6.x series of kernels for a couple of years. Namely I can confirm its
presence in, and (tested all of them on our

I think it was not noticed before because not many people use manually
configured non PNP UARTs on ISA/LPC bus these days. Also the data loss
caused by buffer overruns occures only if  IRQ latency is higher then
time needed to receive one character on given communication speed.
For example our hardware looses received characters only if the UARTs
are connected throught LPC bus with SERIRQ (serial IRQ transport) and
not if they are connected to ISA bus because LPC SERIRQ has higher
interrupt latency then parallel ISA interupt lines.

Here is the patch to correct the bug created against

n_gsm: Fix support for legacy encoding

The mux supports several encoding schemes. Encoding 0 is a "not

hardware that supports this mode, and found wanting.

serial: Add support for UART on VIA VT8500 and compatibles

This adds a driver for the serial ports found in VIA and WonderMedia
Systems-on-Chip. Interrupt-driven FIFO operation is implemented.
The hardware also supports pure register-based operation (which is
slower) and DMA-based FIFO operation. As the FIFOs are only 16 bytes

ext4: Don't call sb_issue_discard() in ext4_free_blocks()

Commit 5c521830cf (ext4: Support discard requests when running in
no-journal mode) attempts to add sb_issue_discard() for data blocks
(in data=writeback mode) and in no-journal mode.  Unfortunately, this
no longer works, because in commit dd3932eddf (block: remove

interface, and there are times when we call ext4_free_blocks() when we
are are holding a spinlock, or are otherwise in an atomic context.

For now, I've removed the call to sb_issue_discard() to prevent a
deadlock or (if spinlock debugging is enabled) failures like this:

Theodore Ts'o [Mon, 8 Nov 2010 18:43:33 +0000]
ext4: handle writeback of inodes which are being freed

The following BUG can occur when an inode which is getting freed when
it still has dirty pages outstanding, and it gets deleted (in this
because it was the target of a rename).  In ordered mode, we need to
make sure the data pages are written just in case we crash before the
rename (or unlink) is committed.  If the inode is being freed then
when we try to igrab the inode, we end up tripping the BUG_ON at

To solve this problem, we need to keep track of the number of io
callbacks which are pending, and avoid destroying the inode until they
have all been completed.  That way we don't have to bump the inode
count to keep the inode from being destroyed; an approach which
doesn't work because the count could have already been dropped down to
zero before the inode writeback has started (at which point we're not
allowed to bump the count back up to 1, since it's already started
getting freed).

Thanks to Dave Chinner for suggesting this approach, which is also
used by XFS.

ipw2x00: remove the right /proc/net entry

Commit 27ae60f8f7aa ("ipw2x00: replace "ieee80211" with "libipw" where
appropriate") changed DRV_NAME to be "libipw", but didn't properly fix
up the places where it was used to specify the name for the /proc/net/

For backwards compatibility reasons, that directory name remained
"ieee80211", but due to the DRV_NAME change, the error case printouts
and the cleanup functions now used "libipw" instead.  Which made it all
fail badly.

For example, on module unload as reported by Randy:

  WARNING: at fs/proc/generic.c:816 remove_proc_entry+0x156/0x35e()
  name 'libipw'

because it's trying to unregister a /proc directory that obviously
doesn't even exist.

Commit 488211844e0c ("floppy: switch to one queue per drive instead of
sharing a queue") introduced a use-after-free.  We do "put_disk()" on
the disk device _before_ we then clean up the queue associated with that

Move the put_disk() down to avoid dereferencing a free'd data structure.

Oleg Nesterov [Fri, 5 Nov 2010 15:53:42 +0000]
posix-cpu-timers: workaround to suppress the problems with mt exec

posix-cpu-timers.c correctly assumes that the dying process does
posix_cpu_timers_exit_group() and removes all !CPUCLOCK_PERTHREAD
timers from signal->cpu_timers list.

But, it also assumes that timer->it.cpu.task is always the group
leader, and thus the dead ->task means the dead thread group.

This is obviously not true after de_thread() changes the leader.
After that almost every posix_cpu_timer_ method has problems.

It is not simple to fix this bug correctly. First of all, I think
that timer->it.cpu should use struct pid instead of task_struct.
Also, the locking should be reworked completely. In particular,
tasklist_lock should not be used at all. This all needs a lot of
nontrivial and hard-to-test changes.

Change __exit_signal() to do posix_cpu_timers_exit_group() when
the old leader dies during exec. This is not the fix, just the
temporary hack to hide the problem for 2.6.37 and stable. IOW,
this is obviously wrong but this is what we currently have anyway:
cpu timers do not work after mt exec.

In theory this change adds another race. The exiting leader can
detach the timers which were attached to the new leader. However,
the window between de_thread() and release_task() is small, we
can pretend that sys_timer_create() was called before de_thread().

KVM: Write protect memory after slot swap

I have observed the following bug trigger:

1. userspace calls GET_DIRTY_LOG
2. kvm_mmu_slot_remove_write_access is called and makes a page ro
3. page fault happens and makes the page writeable
   fault is logged in the bitmap appropriately
4. kvm_vm_ioctl_get_dirty_log swaps slot pointers

a lot of time passes

5. guest writes into the page
6. userspace calls GET_DIRTY_LOG

At point (5), bitmap is clean and page is writeable,
thus, guest modification of memory is not logged
and GET_DIRTY_LOG returns an empty bitmap.

The rule is that all pages are either dirty in the current bitmap,
or write-protected, which is violated here.

It seems that just moving kvm_mmu_slot_remove_write_access down

This patch is based on Dan's original patch. His original description is

Smatch complained about a couple checking for NULL after dereferencing
bugs.  I'm not super familiar with the code so I did the conservative
thing and move the dereferences after the checks.

The dereferences in cifs_lock() and cifs_fsync() were added in
ba00ba64cf0 "cifs: make various routines use the cifsFileInfo->tcon
pointer".  The dereference in find_writable_file() was added in
6508d904e6f "cifs: have find_readable/writable_file filter by fsuid".
The comments there say it's possible to trigger the NULL dereference

sh: nommu: Support building without an uncached mapping.

Now that nommu selects 32BIT we run in to the situation where SH-2A
supports an uncached identity mapping by way of the BSC, while the SH-2
does not. This provides stubs for the PC manglers and tidies up some of
the system*.h mess in the process.

8 years agosh: nommu: use 32-bit phys mode.
Paul Mundt [Thu, 4 Nov 2010 03:32:24 +0000]
sh: nommu: use 32-bit phys mode.

The nommu code has regressed somewhat in that 29BIT gets set for the
SH-2/2A configs regardless of the fact that they are really 32BIT sans
MMU or PMB. This does a bit of tidying to get nommu properly selecting
32BIT as it was before.

sh: mach-se: Fix up SE7206 no ioport build.

There was a leftover inw() used here that really just wants to be a
__raw_readw() instead. Convert it over.

mmc: sh_mmcif: Convert extern inline to static inline.

Presently the extern inline case results in a compiler warning on ARM due
to the memory barrier definition used in the I/O routines. These
ultimately all want to be static inline anyways, so just convert them all
in place.

cls_cgroup: Fix crash on module unload

Somewhere along the lines net_cls_subsys_id became a macro when
cls_cgroup is built as a module.  Not only did it make cls_cgroup
completely useless, it also causes it to crash on module unload.

This patch fixes this by removing that macro.

Thanks to Eric Dumazet for diagnosing this problem.

8 years agonet dst: fix percpu_counter list corruption and poison overwritten
Xiaotian Feng [Tue, 2 Nov 2010 16:11:05 +0000]
net dst: fix percpu_counter list corruption and poison overwritten

There're some percpu_counter list corruption and poison overwritten warnings
in recent kernel, which is resulted by fc66f95c.

commit fc66f95c switches to use percpu_counter, in ip6_route_net_init, kernel
init the percpu_counter for dst entries, but, the percpu_counter is never destroyed
in ip6_route_net_exit. So if the related data is freed by kernel, the freed percpu_counter
is still on the list, then if we insert/remove other percpu_counter, list corruption
resulted. Also, if the insert/remove option modifies the ->prev,->next pointer of
the freed value, the poison overwritten is resulted then.

With the following patch, the percpu_counter list corruption and poison overwritten
warnings disappeared.

netxen: remove unused firmware exports

Quote from Amit Salecha:

"Actually I was not updated, NX_UNIFIED_ROMIMAGE_NAME (phanfw.bin) is already
submitted and its present in linux-firmware.git.

I will get back to you on NX_P2_MN_ROMIMAGE_NAME, NX_P3_CT_ROMIMAGE_NAME and
NX_P3_MN_ROMIMAGE_NAME. Whether this will be submitted ?"

We have to remove these, otherwise we will get wrong info from modinfo.
