12 years agomove daemonized kernel threads into the swapper's session
Oleg Nesterov [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 12:19:10 +0000]
move daemonized kernel threads into the swapper's session

Daemonized kernel threads run in the init's session. This doesn't match the
behaviour of kthread_create()'ed threads, and this is one of the 2 reasons
why we need a special hack in sys_setsid().

Now that set_special_pids() was changed to use struct pid, not pid_t, we can
use init_struct_pid and set 0,0 special pids.

sys_setsid() still deals with pid_t's from the global namespace. This means
that the "session > 1" check can't help for sub-namespace init, setsid() can't

The first "p->exit_state != EXIT_ZOMBIE" check doesn't make too much sense.
The exit_state was EXIT_ZOMBIE when the function was called, and another

12 years agodo_wait: fix security checks
Oleg Nesterov [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 12:19:06 +0000]
do_wait: fix security checks

Imho, the current usage of security_task_wait() is not logical.

Suppose we have the single child p, and security_task_wait(p) return
-EANY.  In that case waitpid(-1) returns this error.  Why? Isn't it
better to return ECHLD? We don't really have reapable children.

Now suppose that child was stolen by gdb.  In that case we find this
child on ->ptrace_children and set flag = 1, but we don't check that the
child was denied.  So, do_wait(..., WNOHANG) returns 0, this doesn't
match the behaviour above.  Without WNOHANG do_wait() blocks only to
return the error later, when the child will be untraced.  Inho, really
strange.

I think eligible_child() should return the error only if the child's pid
was requested explicitly, otherwise we should silently ignore the tasks
which were nacked by security_task_wait().

leaders in a non-empty thread group.  I don't really understand the exact

ptrace_stop: fix racy nonstop_code setting

If the tracer is gone and we are not going to stop, ptrace_stop() sets
->exit_code = nostop_code.  However, the tracer could actually clear the
exit code before detaching.  In that case get_signal_to_deliver() "resends"
the signal which was cancelled by the debugger.  For example, it is
possible that a quick PTRACE_ATTACH + PTRACE_DETACH can leave the tracee in
STOPPED state.

Change the behaviour of ptrace_stop().  If the caller is ptrace notify(),
we should always clear ->exit_code.  If the caller is
get_signal_to_deliver(), we should not touch it at all.  To do so, change

Oleg Nesterov [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 12:19:01 +0000]
wait_task_stopped: simplify and fix races with SIGCONT/SIGKILL/untrace

wait_task_stopped() has multiple races with SIGCONT/SIGKILL.  tasklist_lock
does not pin the child in TASK_TRACED/TASK_STOPPED stated, almost all info
reported (including exit_code) may be wrong.

In fact, the code under write_lock_irq(tasklist_lock) is not safe.  The child
may be PTRACE_DETACH'ed at this time by another subthread, in that case it is
possible we are no longer its ->parent.

Change wait_task_stopped() to take ->siglock before inspecting the task.  This
guarantees that the child can't resume and (for example) clear its
->exit_code, so we don't need to use xchg(&p->exit_code) and re-check.  The
only exception is ptrace_stop() which changes ->state and ->exit_code without
->siglock held during abort.  But this can only happen if both the tracer and
the tracee are dying (coredump is in progress), we don't care.

With this patch wait_task_stopped() doesn't move the child to the end of
the ->parent list on success.  This optimization could be restored, but
in that case we have to take write_lock(tasklist) and do some nasty
checks.

Also change the do_wait() since we don't return EAGAIN any longer.

Pierre Peiffer [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 12:18:57 +0000]
IPC: make struct ipc_ids static in ipc_namespace

Each ipc_namespace contains a table of 3 pointers to struct ipc_ids (3 for
msg, sem and shm, structure used to store all ipcs) These 'struct ipc_ids'
are dynamically allocated for each icp_namespace as the ipc_namespace
itself (for the init namespace, they are initialized with pointers to
static variables instead)

It is so for historical reason: in fact, before the use of idr to store the
ipcs, the ipcs were stored in tables of variable length, depending of the
maximum number of ipc allowed.  Now, these 'struct ipc_ids' have a fixed
size.  As they are allocated in any cases for each new ipc_namespace, there
is no gain of memory in having them allocated separately of the struct
ipc_namespace.

This patch proposes to make this table static in the struct ipc_namespace.
Thus, we can allocate all in once and get rid of all the code needed to
allocate and free these ipc_ids separately.

12 years agoproc: fix ->open'less usage due to ->proc_fops flip
Alexey Dobriyan [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 12:18:37 +0000]
proc: fix ->open'less usage due to ->proc_fops flip

Typical PDE creation code looks like:

pde = create_proc_entry("foo", 0, NULL);
if (pde)
pde->proc_fops = &foo_proc_fops;

Notice that PDE is first created, only then ->proc_fops is set up to
final value. This is a problem because right after creation
a) PDE is fully visible in /proc , and
b) ->proc_fops are proc_file_operations which do not have ->open callback. So, it's
   possible to ->read without ->open (see one class of oopses below).

The fix is new API called proc_create() which makes sure ->proc_fops are
set up before gluing PDE to main tree. Typical new code looks like:

pde = proc_create("foo", 0, NULL, &foo_proc_fops);
if (!pde)
return -ENOMEM;

Fix most networking users for a start.

In the long run, create_proc_entry() for regular files will go.

12 years agoproc: fix the threaded /proc/self
Eric W. Biederman [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 12:18:35 +0000]
proc: fix the threaded /proc/self

Long ago when the CLONE_THREAD support first went it someone thought it
would be wise to point /proc/self at /proc/<tgid> instead of /proc/<pid>.

Given that /proc/<tgid> can return information about a very different task
(if enough things have been unshared) then our current process /proc/<tgid>
seems blatantly wrong.  So far I have yet to think up an example where the
current behavior would be advantageous, and I can see several places where
it is seriously non-intuitive.

We may be stuck with the current broken behavior for backwards
compatibility reasons but lets try fixing our ancient bug for the 2.6.25
time frame and see if anyone screams.

12 years agoproc: rewrite do_task_stat to correctly handle pid namespaces.
Eric W. Biederman [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 12:18:31 +0000]
proc: rewrite do_task_stat to correctly handle pid namespaces.

Currently (as pointed out by Oleg) do_task_stat has a race when calling
task_pid_nr_ns with the task exiting.  In addition do_task_stat is not
currently displaying information in the context of the pid namespace that
mounted the /proc filesystem.  So "cut -d' ' -f 1 /proc/<pid>/stat" may not
equal <pid>.

This patch fixes the problem by converting to a single_open seq_file show
method.  Getting the pid namespace from the filesystem superblock instead of
current, and simply using the the struct pid from the inode instead of
attempting to get that same pid from the task.

12 years agonamespaces: move the IPC namespace under IPC_NS option
Pavel Emelyanov [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 12:18:22 +0000]
namespaces: move the IPC namespace under IPC_NS option

Currently the IPC namespace management code is spread over the ipc/*.c files.
I moved this code into ipc/namespace.c file which is compiled out when needed.

The linux/ipc_namespace.h file is used to store the prototypes of the
functions in namespace.c and the stubs for NAMESPACES=n case.  This is done
so, because the stub for copy_ipc_namespace requires the knowledge of the
CLONE_NEWIPC flag, which is in sched.h.  But the linux/ipc.h file itself in
included into many many .c files via the sys.h->sem.h sequence so adding the
sched.h into it will make all these .c depend on sched.h which is not that
good.  On the other hand the knowledge about the namespaces stuff is required
in 4 .c files only.

Besides, this patch compiles out some auxiliary functions from ipc/sem.c,
msg.c and shm.c files.  It turned out that moving these functions into
namespaces.c is not that easy because they use many other calls and macros
from the original file.  Moving them would make this patch complicated.  On
the other hand all these functions can be consolidated, so I will send a
separate patch doing this a bit later.

dm raid1: handle read failures

This patch gives the ability to respond-to/record device failures
that happen during read operations.  It also adds the ability to
read from mirror devices that are not the primary if they are
in-sync.

There are essentially two read paths in mirroring; the direct path
and the queued path.  When a read request is mapped, if the region
is 'in-sync' the direct path is taken; otherwise the queued path
is taken.

If the direct path is taken, we must record bio information so that
if the read fails we can retry it.  We then discover the status of
a direct read through mirror_end_io.  If the read has failed, we will
mark the device from which the read was attempted as failed (so we
don't try to read from it again), restore the bio and try again.

If the queued path is taken, we discover the results of the read
from 'read_callback'.  If the device failed, we will mark the device
as failed and attempt the read again if there is another device
where this region is known to be 'in-sync'.

Jonathan Brassow [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 02:11:35 +0000]
dm raid1: fix EIO after log failure

This patch adds the ability to requeue write I/O to
core device-mapper when there is a log device failure.

If a write to the log produces and error, the pending writes are
put on the "failures" list.  Since the log is marked as failed,
they will stay on the failures list until a suspend happens.

Suspends come in two phases, presuspend and postsuspend.  We must
make sure that all the writes on the failures list are requeued
in the presuspend phase (a requirement of dm core).  This means
that recovery must be complete (because writes may be delayed
behind it) and the failures list must be requeued before we
return from presuspend.

The mechanisms to ensure recovery is complete (or stopped) was
already in place, but needed to be moved from postsuspend to
presuspend.  We rely on 'flush_workqueue' to ensure that the
mirror thread is complete and therefore, has requeued all writes
in the failures list.

Because we are using flush_workqueue, we must ensure that no
additional 'queue_work' calls will produce additional I/O
that we need to requeue (because once we return from
presuspend, we are unable to do anything about it).  'queue_work'
is called in response to the following functions:
- complete_resync_work = NA, recovery is stopped
- rh_dec (mirror_end_io) = NA, only calls 'queue_work' if it
                           is ready to recover the region
                           (recovery is stopped) or it needs
                           to clear the region in the log*
                           **this doesn't get called while
                           suspending**
- rh_recovery_end = NA, recovery is stopped
- rh_recovery_start = NA, recovery is stopped
- write_callback = 1) Writes w/o failures simply call
                   bio_endio -> mirror_end_io -> rh_dec
                   (see rh_dec above)
                   2) Writes with failures are put on
                   the failures list and queue_work is
                   called**
                   ** write_callbacks don't happen
                   during suspend **
- do_failures = NA, 'queue_work' not called if suspending
- add_mirror (initialization) = NA, only done on mirror creation
- queue_bio = NA, 1) delayed I/O scheduled before flush_workqueue
              is called.  2) No more I/Os are being issued.
              3) Re-attempted READs can still be handled.
              (Write completions are handled through rh_dec/

dm raid1: handle write failures

This patch gives mirror the ability to handle device failures
during normal write operations.

The 'write_callback' function is called when a write completes.
If all the writes failed or succeeded, we report failure or
success respectively.  If some of the writes failed, we call
fail_mirror; which increments the error count for the device, notes
the type of error encountered (DM_RAID1_WRITE_ERROR),  and
selects a new primary (if necessary).  Note that the primary
device can never change while the mirror is not in-sync (IOW,
while recovery is happening.)  This means that the scenario
where a failed write changes the primary and gives
recovery_complete a chance to misread the primary never happens.
The fact that the primary can change has necessitated the change
to the default_mirror field.  We need to protect against reading
garbage while the primary changes.  We then add the bio to a new
list in the mirror set, 'failures'.  For every bio in the 'failures'
list, we call a new function, '__bio_mark_nosync', where we mark
the region 'not-in-sync' in the log and properly set the region
state as, RH_NOSYNC.  Userspace must also be notified of the
failure.  This is done by 'raising an event' (dm_table_event()).
If fail_mirror is called in process context the event can be raised
right away.  If in interrupt context, the event is deferred to the
kmirrord thread - which raises the event if 'event_waiting' is set.

Backwards compatibility is maintained by ignoring errors if

12 years agodm: stripe enhanced status return
Brian Wood [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 02:11:24 +0000]
dm: stripe enhanced status return

This patch adds additional information to the status line. It is added at the
end of the returned text so it will not interfere with existing
implementations using this data. The addition of this information will allow
for a common return interface to match that returned with the dm-raid1.c
status line (with Jonathan Brassow's patches).

Here is a sample of what is returned with a mirror "status" call:
isw_eeaaabgfg_mirror: 0 488390920 mirror 2 8:16 8:32 3727/3727 1 AA 1 core

12 years agodm: stripe trigger event on failure
Brian Wood [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 02:11:22 +0000]
dm: stripe trigger event on failure

This patch adds the stripe_end_io function to process errors that might
occur after an IO operation. As part of this there are a number of
enhancements made to record and trigger events:

- New atomic variable in struct stripe to record the number of
errors each stripe volume device has experienced (could be used
later with uevents to report back directly to userspace)

- New workqueue/work struct setup to process the trigger_event function

- New end_io function. It is here that testing for BIO error conditions
take place. It determines the exact stripe that cause the error,
records this in the new atomic variable, and calls the queue_work() function

- New trigger_event function to process failure events. This
calls dm_table_event()
