10 years agoexofs: Remove inode->i_count manipulation in exofs_new_inode
Boaz Harrosh [Sat, 16 Oct 2010 08:14:01 +0000]
exofs: Remove inode->i_count manipulation in exofs_new_inode

exofs_new_inode() was incrementing the inode->i_count and
decrementing it in create_done(), in a bad attempt to make sure
the inode will still be there when the asynchronous create_done()
finally arrives. This was very stupid because iput() was not called,
and if it was actually needed, it would leak the inode.

However all this is not needed, because at exofs_evict_inode()
we already wait for create_done() by waiting for the
object_created event. Therefore remove the superfluous ref counting
and just Thicken the comment at exofs_evict_inode() a bit.

While at it change places that open coded wait_obj_created()
to call the already available wrapper.

Linus Torvalds [Thu, 14 Oct 2010 21:32:06 +0000]
Un-inline the core-dump helper functions

Tony Luck reports that the addition of the access_ok() check in commit
0eead9ab41da ("Don't dump task struct in a.out core-dumps") broke the
ia64 compile due to missing the necessary header file includes.

Rather than add yet another include (<asm/unistd.h>) to make everything
happy, just uninline the silly core dump helper functions and move the
bodies to fs/exec.c where they make a lot more sense.

dump_seek() in particular was too big to be an inline function anyway,
and none of them are in any way performance-critical.  And we really
don't need to mess up our include file headers more than they already
are.

ioat2: fix performance regression

Commit 0793448 "DMAENGINE: generic channel status v2" changed the interface for
how dma channel progress is retrieved.  It inadvertently exported an internal
helper function ioat_tx_status() instead of ioat_dma_tx_status().  The latter
polls the hardware to get the latest completion state, while the helper just
evaluates the current state without touching hardware.  The effect is that we
end up waiting for completion timeouts or descriptor allocation errors before
the completion state is updated.

iperf (before fix):
[SUM]  0.0-41.3 sec   364 MBytes  73.9 Mbits/sec

iperf (after fix):
[SUM]  0.0- 4.5 sec   499 MBytes   940 Mbits/sec

This is a regression starting with 2.6.35.

Greg Ungerer [Mon, 11 Oct 2010 21:03:05 +0000]
net: allow FEC driver to use fixed PHY support

At least one board using the FEC driver does not have a conventional
PHY attached to it, it is directly connected to a somewhat simple
ethernet switch (the board is the SnapGear/LITE, and the attached
4-port ethernet switch is a RealTek RTL8305). This switch does not
present the usual register interface of a PHY, it presents nothing.
So a PHY scan will find nothing - it finds ID's of 0 for each PHY
on the attached MII bus.

After the FEC driver was changed to use phylib for supporting PHYs
it no longer works on this particular board/switch setup.

Add code support to use a fixed phy if no PHY is found on the MII bus.
This is based on the way the cpmac.c driver solved this same problem.

When channel_disable() is called, it disables per channel interrupts and
waits until channels state becomes STATE_STALL, and then disables the
channel. Now, if the DMA transfer is disabled while the channel is in
STATE_NEXT we will not wait anything and disable the channel immediately.
This seems to cause weird data corruption for example in audio transfers.

disable the channel.

10 years agoring-buffer: Fix typo of time extends per page
Steven Rostedt [Tue, 12 Oct 2010 16:06:43 +0000]
ring-buffer: Fix typo of time extends per page

Time stamps for the ring buffer are created by the difference between
two events. Each page of the ring buffer holds a full 64 bit timestamp.
Each event has a 27 bit delta stamp from the last event. The unit of time
is nanoseconds, so 27 bits can hold ~134 milliseconds. If two events
happen more than 134 milliseconds apart, a time extend is inserted
to add more bits for the delta. The time extend has 59 bits, which
is good for ~18 years.

Currently the time extend is committed separately from the event.
If an event is discarded before it is committed, due to filtering,
the time extend still exists. If all events are being filtered, then
after ~134 milliseconds a new time extend will be added to the buffer.

This can only happen till the end of the page. Since each page holds
a full timestamp, there is no reason to add a time extend to the
beginning of a page. Time extends can only fill a page that has actual
data at the beginning, so there is no fear that time extends will fill
more than a page without any data.

When reading an event, a loop is made to skip over time extends
since they are only used to maintain the time stamp and are never
given to the caller. As a paranoid check to prevent the loop running
forever, with the knowledge that time extends may only fill a page,
a check is made that tests the iteration of the loop, and if the
iteration is more than the number of time extends that can fit in a page
a warning is printed and the ring buffer is disabled (all of ftrace
is also disabled with it).

There is another event type that is called a TIMESTAMP which can
hold 64 bits of data in the theoretical case that two events happen
18 years apart. This code has not been implemented, but the name
of this event exists, as well as the structure for it. The
size of a TIMESTAMP is 16 bytes, where as a time extend is only
8 bytes. The macro used to calculate how many time extends can fit on
a page used the TIMESTAMP size instead of the time extend size
cutting the amount in half.

The following test case can easily trigger the warning since we only
need to have half the page filled with time extends to trigger the
warning:

 # cd /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/
 # echo function > current_tracer
 # echo 'common_pid < 0' > events/ftrace/function/filter
 # echo > trace
 # echo 1 > trace_marker
 # sleep 120
 # cat trace

Enabling the function tracer and then setting the filter to only trace
functions where the process id is negative (no events), then clearing
the trace buffer to ensure that we have nothing in the buffer,
then write to trace_marker to add an event to the beginning of a page,
sleep for 2 minutes (only 35 seconds is probably needed, but this
guarantees the bug), and then finally reading the trace which will
trigger the bug.

This patch fixes the typo and prevents the false positive of that warning.

10 years agodrm/radeon/kms: avoid corner case issue with unmappable vram V2
Jerome Glisse [Tue, 10 Aug 2010 21:41:31 +0000]
drm/radeon/kms: avoid corner case issue with unmappable vram V2

We should not allocate any object into unmappable vram if we
have no means to access them which on all GPU means having the
CP running and on newer GPU having the blit utility working.

This patch limit the vram allocation to visible vram until
we have acceleration up and running.

Note that it's more than unlikely that we run into any issue
related to that as when acceleration is not woring userspace
should allocate any object in vram beside front buffer which
should fit in visible vram.

V2 use real_vram_size as mc_vram_size could be bigger than
   the actual amount of vram

10 years agofanotify: disable fanotify syscalls
Eric Paris [Mon, 11 Oct 2010 22:13:31 +0000]
fanotify: disable fanotify syscalls

This patch disables the fanotify syscalls by just not building them and
letting the cond_syscall() statements in kernel/sys_ni.c redirect them
to sys_ni_syscall().

It was pointed out by Tvrtko Ursulin that the fanotify interface did not
include an explicit prioritization between groups.  This is necessary
for fanotify to be usable for hierarchical storage management software,
as they must get first access to the file, before inotify-like notifiers
see the file.

This feature can be added in an ABI compatible way in the next release
(by using a number of bits in the flags field to carry the info) but it
was suggested by Alan that maybe we should just hold off and do it in
the next cycle, likely with an (new) explicit argument to the syscall.
I don't like this approach best as I know people are already starting to
use the current interface, but Alan is all wise and noone on list backed
me up with just using what we have.  I feel this is needlessly ripping
the rug out from under people at the last minute, but if others think it
needs to be a new argument it might be the best way forward.

Three choices:
Go with what we got (and implement the new feature next cycle).  Add a
new field right now (and implement the new feature next cycle).  Wait
till next cycle to release the ABI (and implement the new feature next
cycle).  This is number 3.

10 years agox86, numa: For each node, register the memory blocks actually used
Yinghai Lu [Mon, 11 Oct 2010 02:52:15 +0000]
x86, numa: For each node, register the memory blocks actually used

Russ reported SGI UV is broken recently. He said:

| The SRAT table shows that memory range is spread over two nodes.
|
| SRAT: Node 0 PXM 0 100000000-800000000
| SRAT: Node 1 PXM 1 800000000-1000000000
| SRAT: Node 0 PXM 0 1000000000-1080000000
|
|Previously, the kernel early_node_map[] would show three entries
|with the proper node.
|
|[    0.000000]     0: 0x00100000 -> 0x00800000
|[    0.000000]     1: 0x00800000 -> 0x01000000
|[    0.000000]     0: 0x01000000 -> 0x01080000
|
|The problem is recent community kernel early_node_map[] shows
|only two entries with the node 0 entry overlapping the node 1
|entry.
|
|    0: 0x00100000 -> 0x01080000
|    1: 0x00800000 -> 0x01000000

After looking at the changelog, Found out that it has been broken for a while by
following commit

|commit 8716273caef7f55f39fe4fc6c69c5f9f197f41f1
|Author: David Rientjes <rientjes@google.com>
|Date:   Fri Sep 25 15:20:04 2009 -0700
|
|    x86: Export srat physical topology

Before that commit, register_active_regions() is called for every SRAT memory
entry right away.

Use nodememblk_range[] instead of nodes[] in order to make sure we
capture the actual memory blocks registered with each node.  nodes[]
contains an extended range which spans all memory regions associated
with a node, but that does not mean that all the memory in between are
included.

Several other ethtool functions leave heap uncleared (potentially) by
drivers. Some interfaces appear safe (eeprom, etc), in that the sizes
are well controlled. In some situations (e.g. unchecked error conditions),
the heap will remain unchanged in areas before copying back to userspace.
Note that these are less of an issue since these all require CAP_NET_ADMIN.

Stanse found that ia_init_one locks a spinlock and inside of that it
calls ia_start which calls:
* request_irq
* tx_init which does kmalloc(GFP_KERNEL)

Both of them can thus sleep and result in a deadlock. I don't see a

and inited right before the lock location. So remove it completely.

x86, AMD, MCE thresholding: Fix the MCi_MISCj iteration order

This fixes possible cases of not collecting valid error info in
the MCE error thresholding groups on F10h hardware.

The current code contains a subtle problem of checking only the
Valid bit of MSR0000_0413 (which is MC4_MISC0 - DRAM
thresholding group) in its first iteration and breaking out if
the bit is cleared.

But (!), this MSR contains an offset value, BlkPtr[31:24], which
points to the remaining MSRs in this thresholding group which
might contain valid information too. But if we bail out only
after we checked the valid bit in the first MSR and not the
block pointer too, we miss that other information.

The thing is, MC4_MISC0[BlkPtr] is not predicated on
MCi_STATUS[MiscV] or MC4_MISC0[Valid] and should be checked
prior to iterating over the MCI_MISCj thresholding group,
irrespective of the MC4_MISC0[Valid] setting.

isdn: strcpy() => strlcpy()

setup.phone and setup.eazmsn are 32 character buffers.
rcvmsg.msg_data.byte_array is a 48 character buffer.
sc_adapter[card]->channel[rcvmsg.phy_link_no - 1].dn is 50 chars.

The rcvmsg struct comes from the memcpy_fromio() in receivemessage().
I guess that means it's data off the wire.  I'm not very familiar with
this code but I don't see any reason to assume these strings are NULL
terminated.

Also it's weird that "dn" in a 50 character buffer but we only seem to
use 32 characters.  In drivers/isdn/sc/scioc.h, "dn" is only a 49
character buffer.  So potentially there is still an issue there.

The important thing for now is to prevent the memory corruption.

10 years agosysctl: fix min/max handling in __do_proc_doulongvec_minmax()
Eric Dumazet [Thu, 7 Oct 2010 19:59:29 +0000]
sysctl: fix min/max handling in __do_proc_doulongvec_minmax()

When proc_doulongvec_minmax() is used with an array of longs, and no
min/max check requested (.extra1 or .extra2 being NULL), we dereference a
NULL pointer for the second element of the array.

Noticed while doing some changes in network stack for the "16TB problem"

Fix is to not change min & max pointers in __do_proc_doulongvec_minmax(),
so that all elements of the vector share an unique min/max limit, like
proc_dointvec_minmax().

ceph: update issue_seq on cap grant

We need to update the issue_seq on any grant operation, be it via an MDS
reply or a separate grant message.  The update in the grant path was
missing.  This broke cap release for inodes in which the MDS sent an
explicit grant message that was not soon after followed by a successful
MDS reply on the same inode.

Also fix the signedness on seq locals.

10 years agoceph: send cap release message early on failed revoke.
Greg Farnum [Wed, 6 Oct 2010 22:46:30 +0000]
ceph: send cap release message early on failed revoke.

If an MDS tries to revoke caps that we don't have, we want to send
releases early since they probably contain the caps message the MDS
is looking for.

Previously, we only sent the messages if we didn't have the inode either. But
in a multi-mds system we can retain the inode after dropping all caps for
a single MDS.

verifying that req->r_osd was non-NULL before dereferencing it.  This could
cause a crash if osds were flapping and we aborted a request on said osd.
