Herbert Xu [Sun, 23 Oct 2005 07:18:00 +0000]
[NEIGH] Fix timer leak in neigh_changeaddr

neigh_changeaddr attempts to delete neighbour timers without setting
nud_state.  This doesn't work because the timer may have already fired
when we acquire the write lock in neigh_changeaddr.  The result is that
the timer may keep firing for quite a while until the entry reaches
NEIGH_FAILED.

It should be setting the nud_state straight away so that if the timer
has already fired it can simply exit once we relinquish the lock.

In fact, this whole function is simply duplicating the logic in
neigh_ifdown which in turn is already doing the right thing when
it comes to deleting timers and setting nud_state.

So all we have to do is take that code out and put it into a common
function and make both neigh_changeaddr and neigh_ifdown call it.

neigh_add_timer cannot use add_timer unconditionally.  The reason is that

dying, without races.  Since then we've gotten the signal_struct.live

avoids the deadlock issues that the old __exit_signal code's comment talks

[PATCH] cpufreq: fix pending powernow timer stuck condition

AMD recently discovered that on some hardware, there is a race condition
possible when a C-state change request goes onto the bus at the same
time as a P-state change request.

Both requests happen, but the southbridge hardware only acknowledges the
C-state change.  The PowerNow! driver is then stuck in a loop, waiting
for the P-state change acknowledgement.  The driver eventually times
out, but can no longer perform P-state changes.

It turns out the solution is to resend the P-state change, which the
southbridge will acknowledge normally.

Thanks to Johannes Winkelmann for reporting this and testing the fix.

[PATCH] ppc64: Fix pages marked dirty abusively

While working on 64K pages, I found this little buglet in our
update_mmu_cache() implementation.

The code calls __hash_page() passing it an "access" parameter (the type
of access that triggers the hash) containing the bits _PAGE_RW and
_PAGE_USER of the linux PTE.  The latter is useless in this case and the
former is wrong.  In fact, if we have a writeable PTE and we pass
_PAGE_RW to hash_page(), it will set _PAGE_DIRTY (since we track dirty
that way, by hash faulting !dirty) which is not what we want.

In fact, the correct fix is to always pass 0. That means that only
read-only or already dirty read write PTEs will be preloaded. The
(hopefully rare) case of a non dirty read write PTE can't be preloaded
this way, it will have to fault in hash_page on the actual access.

[DCCP]: Make dccp_write_xmit always free the packet

icmp_send doesn't use skb->sk at all so even if skb->sk has already

else first, e.g., ip_queue_xmit).

dccp_sendmsg and dccp_write_xmit are a little confused as to what
should free the packet when something goes wrong.  Sometimes they
both go for the ball and end up in each other's way.

This patch makes dccp_write_xmit always free the packet no matter
what.  This makes sense since dccp_transmit_skb which in turn comes
from the fact that ip_queue_xmit always frees the packet.

Yasunori Goto [Wed, 19 Oct 2005 22:52:18 +0000]
[PATCH] swiotlb: make sure initial DMA allocations really are in DMA memory

This introduces a limit parameter to the core bootmem allocator; The new
parameter indicates that physical memory allocated by the bootmem
allocator should be within the requested limit.

We also introduce alloc_bootmem_low_pages_limit, alloc_bootmem_node_limit,
alloc_bootmem_low_pages_node_limit apis, but alloc_bootmem_low_pages_limit
is the only api used for swiotlb.

The existing alloc_bootmem_low_pages() api could instead have been
changed and made to pass right limit to the core allocator.  But that
would make the patch more intrusive for 2.6.14, as other arches use
alloc_bootmem_low_pages().  We may be done that post 2.6.14 as a
cleanup.

With this, swiotlb gets memory within 4G for both x86_64 and ia64
arches.

The PF_NOFREEZE process flag should not be inherited when a thread is

This problem is starting to show up more and more as drivers turn to the

threads are now children of the kthread worker instead of modprobe, and
they inherit the PF_NOFREEZE flag.  This can cause problems during system

14 years ago[PATCH] Three one-liners in md.c
NeilBrown [Thu, 20 Oct 2005 04:23:47 +0000]
[PATCH] Three one-liners in md.c

The main problem fixes is that in certain situations stopping md arrays may
take longer than you expect, or may require multiple attempts.  This would
only happen when resync/recovery is happening.

This patch fixes three vaguely related bugs.

1/ The recent change to use kthreads got the setting of the
   process name wrong.  This fixes it.
2/ The recent change to use kthreads lost the ability for
   md threads to be signalled with SIG_KILL.  This restores that.
3/ There is a long standing bug in that if:
    - An array needs recovery (onto a hot-spare) and
    - The recovery is being blocked because some other array being
       recovered shares a physical device and
    - The recovery thread is killed with SIG_KILL
   Then the recovery will appear to have completed with no IO being
   done, which can cause data corruption.
   This patch makes sure that incomplete recovery will be treated as
   incomplete.

Note that any kernel affected by bug 2 will not suffer the problem of bug
3, as the signal can never be delivered.  Thus the current 2.6.14-rc
kernels are not susceptible to data corruption.  Note also that if arrays
are shutdown (with "mdadm -S" or "raidstop") then the problem doesn't
occur.  It only happens if a SIGKILL is independently delivered as done by
'init' when shutting down.

Roland McGrath [Thu, 20 Oct 2005 05:21:23 +0000]
[PATCH] Fix cpu timers exit deadlock and races

Oleg Nesterov reported an SMP deadlock.  If there is a running timer
tracking a different process's CPU time clock when the process owning
the timer exits, we deadlock on tasklist_lock in posix_cpu_timer_del via
exit_itimers.

That code was using tasklist_lock to check for a race with __exit_signal
being called on the timer-target task and clearing its ->signal.
However, there is actually no such race.  __exit_signal will have called
posix_cpu_timers_exit and posix_cpu_timers_exit_group before it does
that.  Those will clear those k_itimer's association with the dying
task, so posix_cpu_timer_del will return early and never reach the code
in question.

In addition, posix_cpu_timer_del called from exit_itimers during execve
or directly from timer_delete in the process owning the timer can race
with an exiting timer-target task to cause a double put on timer-target
task struct.  Make sure we always access cpu_timers lists with sighand
lock held.

[PATCH] Handle spurious page fault for hugetlb region

The hugetlb pages are currently pre-faulted.  At the time of mmap of
hugepages, we populate the new PTEs.  It is possible that HW has already
cached some of the unused PTEs internally.  These stale entries never
get a chance to be purged in existing control flow.

This patch extends the check in page fault code for hugepages.  Check if
a faulted address falls with in size for the hugetlb file backing it.
We return VM_FAULT_MINOR for these cases (assuming that the arch
specific page-faulting code purges the stale entry for the archs that
need it).

problem and was successfully tested with talking to some kuka industrial

14 years ago[PATCH] USB: fix bug in handling of highspeed usb HID devices
Christian Krause [Mon, 17 Oct 2005 21:30:48 +0000]
[PATCH] USB: fix bug in handling of highspeed usb HID devices

During the development of an USB device I found a bug in the handling of
Highspeed HID devices in the kernel.

What happened?

Highspeed HID devices are correctly recognized and enumerated by the
kernel. But even if usbhid kernel module is loaded, no HID reports are
received by the kernel.

The output of the hardware USB analyzer told me that the host doesn't
even poll for interrupt IN transfers (even the "interrupt in" USB
transfer are polled by the host).

After some debugging in hid-core.c I've found the reason.

In case of a highspeed device, the endpoint interval is re-calculated in
driver/usb/input/hid-core.c:

line 1669:
             /* handle potential highspeed HID correctly */
             interval = endpoint->bInterval;
             if (dev->speed == USB_SPEED_HIGH)
                   interval = 1 << (interval - 1);

Basically this calculation is correct (refer to USB 2.0 spec, 9.6.6).
This new calculated value of "interval" is used as input for
usb_fill_int_urb:

line 1685:

            usb_fill_int_urb(hid->urbin, dev, pipe, hid->inbuf, 0,
                   hid_irq_in, hid, interval);

Unfortunately the same calculation as above is done a second time in
usb_fill_int_urb in the file include/linux/usb.h:

line 933:
        if (dev->speed == USB_SPEED_HIGH)
                urb->interval = 1 << (interval - 1);
        else
                urb->interval = interval;

This means, that if the endpoint descriptor (of a high speed device)
specifies e.g. bInterval = 7, the urb->interval gets the value:

hid-core.c: interval = 1 << (7-1) = 0x40 = 64
urb->interval = 1 << (interval -1) = 1 << (63) = integer overflow

Because of this the value of urb->interval is sometimes negative and is
rejected in core/urb.c:
line 353:
                /* too small? */
                if (urb->interval <= 0)
                        return -EINVAL;

The conclusion is, that the recalculaton of the interval (which is
necessary for highspeed) should not be made twice, because this is
simply wrong. ;-)

Re-calculation in usb_fill_int_urb makes more sense, because it is the
most general approach. So it would make sense to remove it from
hid-core.c.

Because in hid-core.c the interval variable is only used for calling
usb_fill_int_urb, it is no problem to remove the highspeed
re-calculation in this file.

Dipankar made RCU limit the batch size to improve latency, but that
approach is unworkable: it can cause the RCU queues to grow without
bounds, since the batch limiter ended up limiting the callbacks.

So make the limit much higher, and start planning on instead limiting

Samuel Thibault [Mon, 17 Oct 2005 03:29:22 +0000]
[PATCH] SVGATextMode fix

Fix bug 5441.

I didn't know about messy programs like svgatextmode...  Couldn't this be
integrated in some linux/drivers/video/console/svgacon.c ?...  So because
of the existence of the svgatextmode program, the kernel is not supposed to
touch to CRT_OVERFLOW/SYNC_END/DISP/DISP_END/OFFSET ?

Disabling the check in vgacon_resize() might help indeed, but I'm really
not sure whether it will work for any chipset: in my patch, CRT registers
are set at each console switch, since stty rows/cols apply to consoles
separately...

The attached solution is to keep the test, but if it fails, we assume that
the caller knows what it does (i.e.  it is svgatextmode) and then disable
any further call to vgacon_doresize.  Svgatextmode is usually used to
_expand_ the display, not to shrink it.  And it is harmless in the case of
a too big stty rows/cols: the display will just be cropped.  I tested it on
my laptop, and it works fine with svgatextmode.

A better solution would be that svgatextmode explicitely tells the kernel
not to care about video timing, but for this an interface needs be defined
and svgatextmode be patched.

Herbert Xu [Mon, 17 Oct 2005 03:29:20 +0000]
[PATCH] list: add missing rcu_dereference on first element

It seems that all the list_*_rcu primitives are missing a memory barrier
on the very first dereference.  For example,

#define list_for_each_rcu(pos, head) \
for (pos = (head)->next; prefetch(pos->next), pos != (head); \
pos = rcu_dereference(pos->next))

It will go something like:

pos = (head)->next

prefetch(pos->next)

pos != (head)

do stuff

We're missing a barrier here.

pos = rcu_dereference(pos->next)

fetch pos->next

barrier given by rcu_dereference(pos->next)

store pos

Without the missing barrier, the pos->next value may turn out to be stale.
In fact, if "do stuff" were also dereferencing pos and relying on
list_for_each_rcu to provide the barrier then it may also break.

So here is a patch to make sure that we have a barrier for the first
element in the list.

Fix memory ordering bug in page reclaim

As noticed by Nick Piggin, we need to make sure that we check the page
count before we check for PageDirty, since the dirty check is only valid
if the count implies that we're the only possible ones holding the page.

We always did do this, but the code needs a read-memory-barrier to make
sure that the orderign is also honored by the CPU.

(The writer side is ordered due to the atomic decrement and test on the
page count, see the discussion on linux-kernel)
