change inotifyfs magic as the same magic is used for futexfs

Right now futexfs and inotifyfs have one magic 0xBAD1DEA, that looks a
little bit confusing.  Use 0xBAD1DEA as magic for futexfs and 0x2BAD1DEA as
magic for inotifyfs.

11 years agoincrease AT_VECTOR_SIZE to terminate saved_auxv properly
Olaf Hering [Wed, 17 Oct 2007 06:30:12 +0000]
increase AT_VECTOR_SIZE to terminate saved_auxv properly

include/asm-powerpc/elf.h has 6 entries in ARCH_DLINFO.  fs/binfmt_elf.c
has 14 unconditional NEW_AUX_ENT entries and 2 conditional NEW_AUX_ENT
entries.  So in the worst case, saved_auxv does not get an AT_NULL entry at
the end.

The saved_auxv array must be terminated with an AT_NULL entry.  Make the
size of mm_struct->saved_auxv arch dependend, based on the number of
ARCH_DLINFO entries.

11 years agotty: expose new methods needed for drivers to get termios right
Alan Cox [Wed, 17 Oct 2007 06:30:07 +0000]
tty: expose new methods needed for drivers to get termios right

This adds three new functions (or in one case to be more exact makes it
always available)

tty_termios_copy_hw

Copies all the hardware settings from one termios structure to the other.
This is intended for drivers that support little or no hardware setting

tty_termios_encode_baud_rate

Allows you to set the input and output baud rate in a termios structure.  A
driver is supposed to set the resulting baud rate from a request so most
will want to use this function to set the resulting input and output rates
to match the hardware values.  Internally it knows about keeping Bxxx
encoding when possible to maximise compatibility.

tty_encode_baud_rate

As above but for the tty's own current termios structure

I suspect this will initially need some tweaking as it gets enabled by
driver patches over the next few mm cycles so consider this lot -mm only
for the moment so it can stabilize and end up neat before it goes to base.

I've tried not to break any obscure architectures - if you get a speed you
can't represent the code will print warnings on non updated termios systems
but not break.

Once this is merged and seems sane I've got a growing pile of driver
updates to use it - notably for USB serial drivers.

reiserfs: workaround for dead loop in finish_unfinished

There is possible dead loop in finish_unfinished function.

In most situation, the call chain iput -> ...  -> reiserfs_delete_inode ->
remove_save_link will success.  But for some reason such as data
corruption, reiserfs_delete_inode fails on reiserfs_do_truncate ->
search_for_position_by_key.

Then remove_save_link won't be called.  We always get the same
"save_link_key" in the while loop in finish_unfinished function.  The
following patch adds a check for the possible dead loop and just remove
save link when deap loop.

shrink_dcache_sb speedup

This patch makes shrink_dcache_sb consistent with dentry pruning policy.

On the first pass we iterate over dentry unused list and prepare some
dentries for removal.

However, since the existing code moves evicted dentries to the beginning of
the LRU it can happen that fresh dentries from other superblocks will be
inserted *before* our dentries.

This can result in significant slowdown of shrink_dcache_sb().  Moreover,
for virtual filesystems like unionfs which can call dput() during dentries
kill existing code results in O(n^2) complexity.

We observed 2 minutes shrink_dcache_sb() with only 35000 dentries.

To avoid this effects we propose to isolate sb dentries at the end
of LRU list.

KEYS: Make request_key() and co fundamentally asynchronous

Make request_key() and co fundamentally asynchronous to make it easier for
NFS to make use of them.  There are now accessor functions that do
asynchronous constructions, a wait function to wait for construction to
complete, and a completion function for the key type to indicate completion
of construction.

Note that the construction queue is now gone.  Instead, keys under
construction are linked in to the appropriate keyring in advance, and that
anyone encountering one must wait for it to be complete before they can use
it.  This is done automatically for userspace.

The following auxiliary changes are also made:

 (1) Key type implementation stuff is split from linux/key.h into
     linux/key-type.h.

 (2) AF_RXRPC provides a way to allocate null rxrpc-type keys so that AFS does
     not need to call key_instantiate_and_link() directly.

 (3) Adjust the debugging macros so that they're -Wformat checked even if
     they are disabled, and make it so they can be enabled simply by defining
     __KDEBUG to be consistent with other code of mine.

 (3) Documentation.

Chris Mason [Wed, 17 Oct 2007 06:29:44 +0000]
try to reap reiserfs pages left around by invalidatepage

reiserfs_invalidatepage will refuse to free pages if they have been logged
in data=journal mode, or were pinned down by a data=ordered operation.  For
data=journal, this is fairly easy to trigger just with fsx-linux, and it
results in a large number of pages hanging around on the LRUs with
page->mapping == NULL.

Calling try_to_free_buffers when reiserfs decides it is done with the page
allows it to be freed earlier, and with much less VM thrashing.  Lock
ordering rules mean that reiserfs can't call lock_page when it is releasing
the buffers, so TestSetPageLocked is used instead.  Contention on these
pages should be rare, so it should be sufficient most of the time.

11 years agoavoid negative (and full-width) shifts in radix-tree.c
Peter Lund [Wed, 17 Oct 2007 06:29:35 +0000]
avoid negative (and full-width) shifts in radix-tree.c

Negative shifts are not allowed in C (the result is undefined).  Same thing
with full-width shifts.

It works on most platforms but not on the VAX with gcc 4.0.1 (it results in an
"operand reserved" fault).

Shifting by more than the width of the value on the left is also not
allowed.  I think the extra '>> 1' tacked on at the end in the original
code was an attempt to work around that.  Getting rid of that is an extra
feature of this patch.

Here's the chapter and verse, taken from the final draft of the C99
standard ("6.5.7 Bitwise shift operators", paragraph 3):

  "The integer promotions are performed on each of the operands. The
  type of the result is that of the promoted left operand. If the
  value of the right operand is negative or is greater than or equal
  to the width of the promoted left operand, the behavior is
  undefined."

Thank you to Jan-Benedict Glaw, Christoph Hellwig, Maciej Rozycki, Pekka
Enberg, Andreas Schwab, and Christoph Lameter for review.  Special thanks
to Andreas for spotting that my fix only removed half the undefined
behaviour.

11 years agohandle recursive calls to bust_spinlocks()
Jan Beulich [Wed, 17 Oct 2007 06:29:33 +0000]
handle recursive calls to bust_spinlocks()

Various architectures may call bust_spinlocks() recursively; the function
itself, however, doesn't appear to be meant to be called in this manner.
Nevertheless, this doesn't appear to be a problem as long as
bust_spinlocks(0) doesn't get called twice in a row (otherwise,
unblank_screen() may enter the scheduler).  However, at least on i386 die()
has been capable of returning (and on other architectures this should
really be that way, too) when notify_die() returns NOTIFY_STOP.

Short of getting a reply to a respective query, this patch makes
bust_spinlocks() increment/decrement oops_in_progress, and wake klogd only
when the count drops back to zero.

"The amount of code required to implement ramfs is tiny, because all the
work is done by the existing Linux caching infrastructure.  Basically,
you're mounting the disk cache as a filesystem.  Because of this, ramfs is

This fixes a problem with the way cciss was filling out the "errors" field
of the request structure upon completion of requests.  Previously, it just
put a 1 or a 0 in there and used the negation of this as the uptodate
parameter to one of the functions in the block layer, being a block device.
 For the SG_IO ioctl, this was not sufficient, and we noticed that, for
example, sg_turs from sg3_utils did not correctly detect problems due to

NBD: allow hung network I/O to be cancelled

Allow NBD I/O to be cancelled when a network outage occurs.  Previously, I/O
would just hang, and if enough I/O was hung in nbd, the system (at least
user-level) would completely hang until a TCP timeout (default, 15 minutes)
occurred.

The patch introduces a new ioctl NBD_SET_TIMEOUT that allows a transmit
timeout value (in seconds) to be specified.  Any network send that exceeds the
timeout will be cancelled and the nbd connection will be shut down.  I've
tested with various timeout values and 6 seconds seems to be a good choice for
the timeout.  If the NBD_SET_TIMEOUT ioctl is not called, you get the old (I/O
hang) behavior.

11 years agofloppy: tolerate DMA channel unavailability
Jan Beulich [Wed, 17 Oct 2007 06:27:32 +0000]
floppy: tolerate DMA channel unavailability

The floppy driver is already written to be able to operate in virtual DMA
mode.  Thus it can easily be adjusted to tolerate failure from
fd_request_dma() as long as virtual DMA mode is not disallowed.

Move PREEMPT_NOTIFIERS into an always-included Kconfig

Kconfig.preempt is not included on some archs (for example, m68k).  On those
archs, the Kconfig machinery complains that KVM selects an undefined symbol
PREEMPT_NOTIFIERS (which lives in Kconfig.preempt).

So move the offending symbol into a Kconfig file which is included by
everyone.

Add vmcoreinfo

This patch set frees the restriction that makedumpfile users should install a
vmlinux file (including the debugging information) into each system.

makedumpfile command is the dump filtering feature for kdump.  It creates a
small dumpfile by filtering unnecessary pages for the analysis.  To
distinguish unnecessary pages, it needs a vmlinux file including the debugging
information.  These days, the debugging package becomes a huge file, and it is
hard to install it into each system.

To solve the problem, kdump developers discussed it at lkml and kexec-ml.  As
the result, we reached the conclusion that necessary information for dump
filtering (called "vmcoreinfo") should be embedded into the first kernel file
and it should be accessed through /proc/vmcore during the second kernel.

There is no any reason to do recalc_sigpending() after changing ->sighand.

This means we don't need to take newsighand->siglock while changing sighands.
rcu_assign_pointer() provides a necessary barrier, and if another process

Fix f_version type: should be u64 instead of unsigned long

Fix f_version type: should be u64 instead of long

There is a type inconsistency between struct inode i_version and struct file
f_version.

fs.h:

struct inode
  u64                     i_version;

and

struct file
  unsigned long           f_version;

Users do:

fs/ext3/dir.c:

if (filp->f_version != inode->i_version) {

So why isn't f_version a u64 ? It becomes a problem if versions gets
higher than 2^32 and we are on an architecture where longs are 32 bits.

This patch changes the f_version type to u64, and updates the users accordingly.

It applies to 2.6.23-rc2-mm2.

11 years agoUse ERESTART_RESTARTBLOCK if poll() is interrupted by a signal
Chris Wright [Wed, 17 Oct 2007 06:27:18 +0000]
Use ERESTART_RESTARTBLOCK if poll() is interrupted by a signal

Lomesh reported poll returning EINTR during suspend/resume cycle.  This is
caused by the STOP/CONT cycle that the freezer uses, generating a pending
signal for what in effect is an ignored signal.  In general poll is a
little eager in returning EINTR, when it could try not bother userspace and
simply restart the syscall.  Both select and ppoll do use ERESTARTNOHAND to
restart the syscall.  Oleg points out that simply using ERESTARTNOHAND will
cause poll to restart with original timeout value.  which could ultimately
lead to process never returning to userspace.  Instead use
ERESTART_RESTARTBLOCK, and restart poll with updated timeout value.
Inspired by Manfred's use ERESTARTNOHAND in poll patch.

Shrink struct task_struct::oomkilladj

oomkilladj is int, but values which can be assigned to it are -17, [-16,
15], thus fitting into s8.

While patch itself doesn't help in making task_struct smaller, because of
natural alignment of ->link_count, it will make picture clearer wrt futher
task_struct reduction patches.  My plan is to move ->fpu_counter and
->oomkilladj after ->ioprio filling hole on i386 and x86_64.  But that's
for later, because bloated distro configs need looking at as well.

11 years agocramfs: error message about endianess
Andi Drebes [Wed, 17 Oct 2007 06:27:12 +0000]
cramfs: error message about endianess

The README file in the cramfs subdirectory says: "All data is currently in
host-endian format; neither mkcramfs nor the kernel ever do swabbing."

If somebody tries to mount a cramfs with the wrong endianess, cramfs only
complains about a wrong magic but doesn't inform the user that only the
endianess isn't right.

The following patch adds an error message to the cramfs sources.  If a user
tries to mount a cramfs with the wrong endianess using the patched sources,
cramfs will display the message "cramfs: wrong endianess".

11 years agofix execute checking in permission()
Miklos Szeredi [Wed, 17 Oct 2007 06:27:08 +0000]
fix execute checking in permission()

permission() checks that MAY_EXEC is only allowed on regular files if at least
one execute bit is set in the file mode.

generic_permission() already ensures this, so the extra check in permission()
is superfluous.

If the filesystem defines it's own ->permission() the check may still be
needed.  In this case move it after ->permission().  This is needed because
filesystems such as FUSE may need to refresh the inode attributes before
checking permissions.

This check should be moved inside ->permission(), but that's another story.

function.

The fix avoids unnecessary swap of contents when i is 0 (saves few loads
and stores), which happens every time sort function is called.  I felt the

unicode diacritics support

There have been issues with non-latin1 diacritics and unicode.
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=7746

Git 759448f459234bfcf34b82471f0dba77a9aca498 `Kernel utf-8 handling'
partly resolved it by adding conversion between diacritics and
unicode. The patch below goes further by just turning diacritics into
unicode, hence providing better future support. The kbd support can be
fetched from
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/attachment.cgi?id=12313

This was tested in all of latin1, latin9, latin2 and unicode with french
and czech dead keys.

Turn the kernel accent_table into unicode, and extend ioctls KDGKBDIACR
and KDSKBDIACR into their equivalents KDGKBDIACRUC and KDSKBDIACR.

New function int conv_uni_to_8bit(u32 uni) for converting unicode into 8bit
_input_.  No, we don't want to store the translation, as it is potentially
sparse and large.

Add MMF_DUMP_ELF_HEADERS

This adds the MMF_DUMP_ELF_HEADERS option to /proc/pid/coredump_filter.
This dumps the first page (only) of a private file mapping if it appears to
be a mapping of an ELF file.  Including these pages in the core dump may
give sufficient identifying information to associate the original DSO and
executable file images and their debugging information with a core file in
a generic way just from its contents (e.g.  when those binaries were built
with ld --build-id).  I expect this to become the default behavior
eventually.  Existing versions of gdb can be confused by the core dumps it
creates, so it won't enabled by default for some time to come.  Soon many
people will have systems with a gdb that handle these dumps, so they can
arrange to set the bit at boot and have it inherited system-wide.

This also cleans up the checking of the MMF_DUMP_* flag bits, which did not
need to be using atomic macros.
