PCIe: ASPM: Break out of endless loop waiting for PCI config bits to switch

Makes a Compaq 6735s boot reliably again.  It used to hang in the loop
on some boots.  Give the link one second to train, otherwise break out
of the loop and reset the previously set clock bits.

PCI: stop leaking 'slot_name' in pci_create_slot

In pci_create_slot(), the local variable 'slot_name' is allocated by
make_slot_name(), but never freed. We never use it after passing it to
the kobject core, so we should free it upon function exit.

Currently audit=0 on the kernel command line does absolutely nothing.
Audit always loads and always uses its resources such as creating the
kernel netlink socket.  This patch causes audit=0 to actually disable
audit.  Audit will use no resources and starting the userspace auditd

Since applying the fix suggested by the errata (disabling MSI), we've had
issues with interrupts being stuck on despite IIR being 0 on GM965 hardware.
Most reporters of the issue have confirmed that turning MSI back on fixes
things, and given the difficulties experienced in getting reliable MSI working
on Linux, it's believable that the errata was about software issues and not
actual hardware issues.

EXPORTFS: handle NULL returns from fh_to_dentry()/fh_to_parent()

While 440037287c5 "[PATCH] switch all filesystems over to
d_obtain_alias" removed some cases where fh_to_dentry() and
fh_to_parent() could return NULL, there are still a few NULL returns
left in individual filesystems.  Thus it was a mistake for that commit
to remove the handling of NULL returns in the callers.

Revert those parts of 440037287c5 which removed the NULL handling.

(We could, alternatively, modify all implementations to return -ESTALE
instead of NULL, but that proves to require fixing a number of
filesystems, and in some cases it's arguably more natural to return
NULL.)

[ARM] Fix alignment fault handling for ARMv6 and later CPUs

On ARMv6 and later CPUs, it is possible for userspace processes to
get stuck on a misaligned load or store due to the "ignore fault"
setting; unlike previous CPUs, retrying the instruction without
the 'A' bit set does not always cause the load to succeed.

We have no real option but to default to fixing up alignment faults
on these CPUs, and having the CPU fix up those misaligned accesses
which it can.

[ARM] 5340/1: fix stack placement after noexecstack changes

Commit 8ec53663d2698076468b3e1edc4e1b418bd54de3 ("[ARM] Improve
non-executable support") added support for detecting non-executable
stack binaries.  One of the things it does is to make READ_IMPLIES_EXEC
be set in ->personality if we are running on a CPU that doesn't support
the XN ("Execute Never") page table bit or if we are running a binary
that needs an executable stack.

This exposed a latent bug in ARM's asm/processor.h due to which we'll
end up placing the stack at a very low address, where it will bump into
the heap on any application that uses significant amount of stack or
heap or both, causing many interesting crashes.

Fix this by testing the ADDR_LIMIT_32BIT bit in ->personality instead
of testing for equality against PER_LINUX_32BIT.

Enforce a minimum SG_IO timeout

There's no point in having too short SG_IO timeouts, since if the
command does end up timing out, we'll end up through the reset sequence
that is several seconds long in order to abort the command that timed
out.

As a result, shorter timeouts than a few seconds simply do not make
sense, as the recovery would be longer than the timeout itself.

Add a BLK_MIN_SG_TIMEOUT to match the existign BLK_DEFAULT_SG_TIMEOUT.

zd1211rw: use unaligned safe memcmp() in-place of compare_ether_addr()

Under my 2.6.28-rc6 sparc64, when associating to an AP through my
zd1211rw device, I was seeing kernel log messages like (not exact output):

  Kernel unaligned access at TPC[10129b68] zd_mac_rx+0x144/0x32c [zd1211rw]

For the zd1211rw module, on RX, the 80211 packet will be located after
the PLCP header in the skb data buffer. The PLCP header being 5 bytes
long, the 80211 header will start unaligned from an aligned skb
buffer.

As per Documentation/unaligned-memory-access.txt, we must replace the
not unaligned() safe compare_ether_addr() with memcmp() to protect
architectures that require alignment.

After fixing zd1211rw: use unaligned safe memcmp() in-place of
compare_ether_addr(), I started to see kernel log messages detailing
unaligned access:

  Kernel unaligned access at TPC[100f7f44] sta_info_get+0x24/0x68 [mac80211]

As with the aforementioned patch, the unaligned access was eminating
from a compare_ether_addr() call. Concerned that whilst it was safe to
assume that unalignment was the norm for the zd1211rw, and take
preventative measures, it may not be the case or acceptable to use the
easy fix of changing the call to memcmp().

My research however indicated that it was OK to do this, as there are
a few instances where memcmp() is the preferred mechanism for doing
mac address comparisons throughout the module.

ipw2200: fix netif_*_queue() removal regression

In "ipw2200: Call netif_*_queue() interfaces properly", netif_stop_queue()
and netif_wake_queue() were removed with the reason
"netif_carrier_{on,off}() handles starting and stopping packet flow into

ipw_tx_skb() cannot be called if device is not in STATUS_ASSOCIATED state.
But netif_carrier_off() doesn't guarantee netdev->hard_start_xmit won't
be called because linkwatch event is handled in a delayed workqueue. This
caused a kernel oops reported by Frank Seidel:
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=397390

This patch fixes the problem by moving the STATUS_ASSOCIATED check back

ipw_disassociate().

This patch cleans uCode key table bit map iwl_clear_stations_table
since all stations are cleared also the key table must be.

Since the keys are not removed properly on suspend by mac80211
this may result in exhausting key table on resume leading
to memory corruption during removal

This patch also fixes a memory corruption problem reported in

When the key is removed a second time the offset is set to 255 - this

[XFS] Fix hang after disallowed rename across directory quota domains

When project quota is active and is being used for directory tree
quota control, we disallow rename outside the current directory
tree. This requires a check to be made after all the inodes
involved in the rename are locked. We fail to unlock the inodes
correctly if we disallow the rename when the target is outside the
current directory tree. This results in a hang on the next access
to the inodes involved in failed rename.

tcp: tcp_vegas ssthresh bug fix

This patch fixes a bug in tcp_vegas.c.  At the moment this code leaves
ssthresh untouched.  However, this means that the vegas congestion
control algorithm is effectively unable to reduce cwnd below the
ssthresh value (if the vegas update lowers the cwnd below ssthresh,
then slow start is activated to raise it back up).  One example where
this matters is when during slow start cwnd overshoots the link
capacity and a flow then exits slow start with ssthresh set to a value
above where congestion avoidance would like to adjust it.

Let's move the __fls() code into fls() function directly, and redefine

10 years agotime: catch xtime_nsec underflows and fix them
john stultz [Tue, 2 Dec 2008 02:34:41 +0000]
time: catch xtime_nsec underflows and fix them

Impact: fix time warp bug

Alex Shi, along with Yanmin Zhang have been noticing occasional time
inconsistencies recently. Through their great diagnosis, they found that
the xtime_nsec value used in update_wall_time was occasionally going
negative. After looking through the code for awhile, I realized we have
the possibility for an underflow when three conditions are met in
update_wall_time():

  1) We have accumulated a second's worth of nanoseconds, so we
     incremented xtime.tv_sec and appropriately decrement xtime_nsec.
     (This doesn't cause xtime_nsec to go negative, but it can cause it
      to be small).

  2) The remaining offset value is large, but just slightly less then
     cycle_interval.

  3) clocksource_adjust() is speeding up the clock, causing a
     corrective amount (compensating for the increase in the multiplier
     being multiplied against the unaccumulated offset value) to be
     subtracted from xtime_nsec.

This can cause xtime_nsec to underflow.

Unfortunately, since we notify the NTP subsystem via second_overflow()
whenever we accumulate a full second, and this effects the error
accumulation that has already occured, we cannot simply revert the
accumulated second from xtime nor move the second accumulation to after
the clocksource_adjust call without a change in behavior.

This leaves us with (at least) two options:

1) Simply return from clocksource_adjust() without making a change if we
   notice the adjustment would cause xtime_nsec to go negative.

This would work, but I'm concerned that if a large adjustment was needed
(due to the error being large), it may be possible to get stuck with an
ever increasing error that becomes too large to correct (since it may
always force xtime_nsec negative). This may just be paranoia on my part.

2) Catch xtime_nsec if it is negative, then add back the amount its
   negative to both xtime_nsec and the error.

This second method is consistent with how we've handled earlier rounding
issues, and also has the benefit that the error being added is always in
the oposite direction also always equal or smaller then the correction
being applied. So the risk of a corner case where things get out of
control is lessened.

This patch fixes bug 11970, as tested by Yanmin Zhang

Ilpo Järvinen [Thu, 4 Dec 2008 05:24:48 +0000]
tcp: make urg+gso work for real this time

I should have noticed this earlier... :-) The previous solution
to URG+GSO/TSO will cause SACK block tcp_fragment to do zig-zig
patterns, or even worse, a steep downward slope into packet
counting because each skb pcount would be truncated to pcount
of 2 and then the following fragments of the later portion would
restore the window again.

Basically this reverts "tcp: Do not use TSO/GSO when there is
urgent data" (33cf71cee1). It also removes some unnecessary code
from tcp_current_mss that didn't work as intented either (could
be that something was changed down the road, or it might have
been broken since the dawn of time) because it only works once
urg is already written while this bug shows up starting from
~64k before the urg point.

The retransmissions already are split to mss sized chunks, so
only new data sending paths need splitting in case they have
a segment otherwise suitable for gso/tso. The actually check
can be improved to be more narrow but since this is late -rc
already, I'll postpone thinking the more fine-grained things.

On "/etc/init.d/capiutils stop", this oops happened.

The oops happens on reading /proc/capi/controllers because
capi_ctrl->procinfo is called for the wrongly not unregistered
controller, which points to b1isa_procinfo(), which was removed on
module unload.

b1isa_exit() did not call b1isa_remove() for its controllers because
io[0] == 0 on module unload despite having been 0x340 on module load.

Besides, just removing the controllers that where added on module
load time and not those that were added later via b1isa_add_card() is
wrong too - the place where all added cards are found is isa_dev[].

10 years agosparc64: Fix VIS emulation bugs
Joseph Myers [Thu, 4 Dec 2008 03:36:05 +0000]
sparc64: Fix VIS emulation bugs

This patch fixes some bugs in VIS emulation that cause the GCC test
failure

FAIL: gcc.target/sparc/pdist-3.c execution test

for both 32-bit and 64-bit testing on hardware lacking these
instructions.  The emulation code for the pdist instruction uses
RS1(insn) for both source registers rs1 and rs2, which is obviously
wrong and leads to the instruction doing nothing (the observed
problem), and further inspection of the code shows that RS1 uses a
shift of 24 and RD a shift of 25, which clearly cannot both be right;
examining SPARC documentation indicates the correct shift for RS1 is
14.

This patch fixes the bug if single-stepping over the affected
instruction in the debugger, but not if the testcase is run
standalone.  For that, Wind River has another patch I hope they will
send as a followup to this patch submission.

10 years agodrm/i915: Return error in i915_gem_set_to_gtt_domain if we're not in the GTT.
Eric Anholt [Wed, 26 Nov 2008 21:58:13 +0000]
drm/i915: Return error in i915_gem_set_to_gtt_domain if we're not in the GTT.

It's only for flushing caches appropriately for GTT access, not for actually
getting it there.  Prevents potential smashing of cpu read/write domains on
unbound objects.

10 years agodrm/i915: Move the execbuffer domain computations together
Keith Packard [Fri, 21 Nov 2008 07:23:03 +0000]
drm/i915: Move the execbuffer domain computations together

This eliminates the dev_set_domain function and just in-lines it
where its used, with the goal of moving the manipulation and use of
invalidate_domains and flush_domains closer together. This also
avoids calling add_request unless some domain has been flushed.

10 years agodrm/i915: Rename object_set_domain to object_set_to_gpu_domain
Keith Packard [Fri, 21 Nov 2008 07:11:08 +0000]
drm/i915: Rename object_set_domain to object_set_to_gpu_domain

Now that the CPU and GTT domain operations are isolated to their own
functions, the previously general-purpose set_domain function is now used
only to set GPU domains. It also has no failure cases, which is important as
this eliminates any possible interruption of the computation of new object
domains and subsequent emmission of the flushing instructions into the ring.

drm/i915: Move flushing list cleanup from flush request retire to request emit.

obj_priv->write_domain is "write domain if the GPU went idle now", not
"write domain at this moment."  By postponing the clear, we confused the
concept, required more storage, and potentially emitted more flushes than

10 years agodrm/i915: Respect GM965/GM45 bit-17-instead-of-bit-11 option for swizzling.
Eric Anholt [Tue, 25 Nov 2008 22:02:05 +0000]
drm/i915: Respect GM965/GM45 bit-17-instead-of-bit-11 option for swizzling.

This fixes readpixels and buffer corruption when swapped out and in by
disabling tiling on them.

Now that we know that the bit 17 mode isn't just a mistake of older chipsets,
we'll need to work on a clever fix so that we can get the performance of
tiling on these chipsets, but that will require intrusive changes targeted
at the next kernel release, not this one.
