8 years agodecompressors: add boot-time XZ support

decompressors: add boot-time XZ support

This implements the API defined in <linux/decompress/generic.h> which is
used for kernel, initramfs, and initrd decompression.  This patch together
with the first patch is enough for XZ-compressed initramfs and initrd;
XZ-compressed kernel will need arch-specific changes.

The buffering requirements described in decompress_unxz.c are stricter
than with gzip, so the relevant changes should be done to the
arch-specific code when adding support for XZ-compressed kernel.
Similarly, the heap size in arch-specific pre-boot code may need to be
increased (30 KiB is enough).

The XZ decompressor needs memmove(), memeq() (memcmp() == 0), and
memzero() (memset(ptr, 0, size)), which aren't available in all
arch-specific pre-boot environments.  I'm including simple versions in
decompress_unxz.c, but a cleaner solution would naturally be nicer.

8 years agodecompressors: add XZ decompressor module
Lasse Collin [Thu, 13 Jan 2011 01:01:22 +0000]
decompressors: add XZ decompressor module

In userspace, the .lzma format has become mostly a legacy file format that
got superseded by the .xz format.  Similarly, LZMA Utils was superseded by
XZ Utils.

These patches add support for XZ decompression into the kernel.  Most of
the code is as is from XZ Embedded <http://tukaani.org/xz/embedded.html>.
It was written for the Linux kernel but is usable in other projects too.

Advantages of XZ over the current LZMA code in the kernel:
  - Nice API that can be used by other kernel modules; it's
    not limited to kernel, initramfs, and initrd decompression.
  - Integrity check support (CRC32)
  - BCJ filters improve compression of executable code on
    certain architectures. These together with LZMA2 can
    produce a few percent smaller kernel or Squashfs images
    than plain LZMA without making the decompression slower.

This patch: Add the main decompression code (xz_dec), testing module
(xz_dec_test), wrapper script (xz_wrap.sh) for the xz command line tool,
and documentation.  The xz_dec module is enough to have a usable XZ
decompressor e.g.  for Squashfs.

Decompressors: fix callback-to-callback mode in decompress_unlzo.c

Callback-to-callback decompression mode is used for initrd (not
initramfs).  The LZO wrapper is broken for this use case for two reasons:

  - The argument validation is needlessly too strict by
    requiring that "posp" is non-NULL when "fill" is non-NULL.

  - The buffer handling code didn't work at all for this
    use case.

I tested with LZO-compressed kernel, initramfs, initrd, and corrupt
(truncated) initramfs and initrd images.

Decompressors: check for read errors in decompress_unlzma.c

Return value of rc->fill() is checked in rc_read() and error() is called
when needed, but then the code continues as if nothing had happened.

rc_read() is a void function and it's on the top of performance critical
call stacks, so propagating the error code via return values doesn't sound
like the best fix.  It seems better to check rc->buffer_size (which holds
the return value of rc->fill()) in the main loop.  It does nothing bad
that the code runs a little with unknown data after a failed rc->fill().

This fixes an infinite loop in initramfs decompression if the
LZMA-compressed initramfs image is corrupt.

cramfs: generate unique inode number for better inode cache usage

Generate a unique inode numbers for any entries in the cram file system.
For files which did not contain data's (device nodes, fifos and sockets)
the offset of the directory entry inside the cramfs plus 1 will be used as
inode number.

The + 1 for the inode will it make possible to distinguish between a file
which contains no data and files which has data, the later one has a inode
value where the lower two bits are always 0.

It also reimplements the behavior to set the size and the number of block
to 0 for special file, which is the right value for empty files, devices,
fifos and sockets

As a little benefit it will be also more compatible which older mkcramfs,
because it will never use the cramfs_inode->offset for creating a inode
number for special files.

VMware balloon: stop locking pages when hypervisor tells us enough

When hypervisor decides to decrease target balloon size while the balloon
driver tries to lock pages hypervisor may respond with
VMW_BALLOON_PPN_NOTNEEDED.  Use this data and immediately stop reserving
pages and wait for the next update cycle to fetch new target instead of
continuing trying to lock pages until size of refused list grows above
VMW_BALLOON_MAX_REFUSED (16) pages.

As a result the driver stops bothering the hypervisor with its attempts to
lock more pages that are not needed anymore.  Most likely next order from
hypervisor will be to reduce ballon size anyway.

It is a small optimization.

8 years agopps: add parallel port PPS client
Alexander Gordeev [Thu, 13 Jan 2011 01:00:58 +0000]
pps: add parallel port PPS client

Add parallel port PPS client.  It uses a standard method for capturing
timestamps for assert edge transitions: getting a timestamp soon after an
interrupt has happened.

This is not a very precise source of time information due to interrupt
handling delays.  However, timestamps for clear edge transitions are much
more precise because the interrupt handler continuously polls hardware
port until the transition is done.

Hardware port operations require only about 1us so the maximum error
should not exceed this value.  This was my primary goal when developing
this client.

Clear edge capture could be disabled using clear_wait parameter.

Alexander Gordeev [Thu, 13 Jan 2011 01:00:56 +0000]
ntp: add hardpps implementation

This commit adds hardpps() implementation based upon the original one from
the NTPv4 reference kernel code from David Mills.  However, it is highly
optimized towards very fast syncronization and maximum stickness to PPS
signal.  The typical error is less then a microsecond.

To make it sync faster I had to throw away exponential phase filter so
that the full phase offset is corrected immediately.  Then I also had to
throw away median phase filter because it gives a bigger error itself if
used without exponential filter.

Maybe we will find an appropriate filtering scheme in the future but it's
not necessary if the signal quality is ok.

8 years agopps: fix race in PPS_FETCH handler
Alexander Gordeev [Thu, 13 Jan 2011 01:00:50 +0000]
pps: fix race in PPS_FETCH handler

There was a race in PPS_FETCH ioctl handler when several processes want to
obtain PPS data simultaneously using sleeping PPS_FETCH.  They all sleep
most of the time in the system call.

With the old approach when the first process waiting on the pps queue is
waken up it makes new system call right away and zeroes pps->go.  So other
processes continue to sleep.  This is a clear race condition because of
the global 'go' variable.

With the new approach pps->last_ev holds some value increasing at each PPS
event.  PPS_FETCH ioctl handler saves current value to the local variable
at the very beginning so it can safely check that there is a new event by
just comparing both variables.

8 years agotaskstats: use better ifdef for alignment
Jeff Mahoney [Thu, 13 Jan 2011 01:00:48 +0000]
taskstats: use better ifdef for alignment

Commit 4be2c95d ("taskstats: pad taskstats netlink response for aligment
issues on ia64") added a null field to align the taskstats structure but
the discussion centered around ia64.  The issue exists on other platforms
with inefficient unaligned access and adding them piecemeal would be an
unmaintainable mess.

This patch uses Dave Miller's suggestion of using a combination of
CONFIG_64BIT && !CONFIG_HAVE_EFFICIENT_UNALIGNED_ACCESS to determine
whether alignment is needed.

Note that this will cause breakage on those platforms with applications
like iotop which had hard-coded offsets into the packet to access the
taskstats structure.

The message seen on systems without the alignment fixes looks like: kernel
unaligned access to 0xe000023879dca9bc, ip=0xa000000100133d10

The addresses may vary but resolve to locations inside __delayacct_add_tsk.

iotop makes what I'd call unreasonable assumptions about the contents of a
netlink genetlink packet containing generic attributes.  They're typed and
have headers that specify value lengths, so the client can (should)
identify and skip the ones the client doesn't understand.

The kernel, as of version 2.6.36, presented a packet like so:
+--------------------------------+
| genlmsghdr - 4 bytes           |
+--------------------------------+
| NLA header - 4 bytes           | /* Aggregate header */
+-+------------------------------+
| | NLA header - 4 bytes         | /* PID header */
| +------------------------------+
| | pid/tgid   - 4 bytes         |
| +------------------------------+
| | NLA header - 4 bytes         | /* stats header */
| + -----------------------------+ <- oops. aligned on 4 byte boundary
| | struct taskstats - 328 bytes |
+-+------------------------------+

The iotop code expects that the kernel will behave as it did then,
assuming that the packet format is set in stone.  The format is set in
stone, but the packet offsets are not.  There's nothing in the packet
format that guarantees that the packet will be sent in exactly the same
way.  The attribute contents are set (or versioned) and the aggregate
contents are set but they can be anywhere in the packet.

The issue here isn't that an unaligned structure gets passed to userspace,
it's that the NLA infrastructure has something of a weakness: The 4 byte
attribute header may force the payload to be unaligned.  The taskstats
structure is created at an unaligned location and then 64-bit values are
operated on inside the kernel, so the unaligned access warnings gets
spewed everywhere.

It's possible to use the unaligned access API to operate on the structure
in the kernel but it seems like a wasted effort to work around userspace
code that isn't following the packet format.  Any new additions would also
need the be worked around.  It's a maintenance nightmare.

The conclusion of the earlier discussion seemed to be "ok fine, if we have
to break it, don't break it on arches that don't have the problem." Dave
pointed out that the unaligned access problem doesn't only exist on ia64,
but also on other 64-bit arches that don't have efficient unaligned access
and it should be fixed there as well.  The committed version of the patch
and this addition keep with the conclusion of that discussion not to break
it unnecessarily, which the pid padding and the packet padding fixes did
do.  x86_64 and powerpc don't suffer this problem so they shouldn't suffer
the solution.  Other 64-bit architectures do and will, though.

8 years agorapidio: use Component Tag for unified switch identification

rapidio: use Component Tag for unified switch identification

Change the way how switchid value is set.  Local counter variable does not
provide unified way to identify switch devices in a system with multiple
processors.  Using local counter leads to the situation when the same RIO
switch has different switch ID for each processor.  Replacing local
counter with unique portion of the Component Tag provides unified
reference to the switch by every processor in the system.

Convert RIO switches device structures (rio_dev + rio_switch) into a

This change is based on the fact that RIO switches are using common RIO

/proc/kcore: fix seeking

Commit 34aacb2920 ("procfs: Use generic_file_llseek in /proc/kcore") broke
seeking on /proc/kcore.  This changes it back to use default_llseek in
order to restore the original behavior.

The problem with generic_file_llseek is that it only allows seeks up to
inode->i_sb->s_maxbytes, which is 2GB-1 on procfs, where the memory file
offset values in the /proc/kcore PT_LOAD segments may exceed or start
beyond that offset value.

A similar revert was made for /proc/vmcore.

cs5535: deprecate older cs5535_gpio driver

The newer drivers/gpio/cs5535-gpio.c replaces drivers/misc/cs5535_gpio.c.
The new driver has been in the tree for a little while, and has received
some testing; it's time to mark the old one as deprecated.  I'm thinking
removal around 2.6.40 would be good, provided we're not missing critical
functionality in the newer driver.

Drop the old geode_gpio crud, as well as the raw outl() calls; instead,
use the Linux GPIO API where possible, and the cs5535_gpio API in other
places.

Note that we don't actually clean up the driver properly yet (once loaded,
it always remains loaded).  That'll come later..

This patch is necessary for building the driver.

drivers/gpio/cs5535-gpio.c: add some additional cs5535-specific GPIO functionality

This adds (well, re-adds actually) handling for events/IRQs through cs5535
GPIOs.  In the wild and wooly world of CS5535, setup_event() is for
assigning an IRQ to a GPIO filter/event pair, and set_irq() sets up the
pair to trigger IRQs.

These should really only be used in highly platform-specific drivers (such
as OLPC's DCON driver).  Sadly, because set_irq() uses MSRs, this causes
the driver to become X86-specific.

rtc-cmos: fix suspend/resume

rtc-cmos was setting suspend/resume hooks at the device_driver level.
However, the platform bus code (drivers/base/platform.c) only looks for
resume hooks at the dev_pm_ops level, or within the platform_driver.

Switch rtc_cmos to use dev_pm_ops so that suspend/resume code is executed
again.

Paul said:

: The user visible symptom in our (XO laptop) case was that rtcwake would
: fail to wake the laptop.  The RTC alarm would expire, but the wakeup
: wasn't unmasked.
:
: As for severity, the impact may have been reduced because if I recall
: correctly, the bug only affected platforms with CONFIG_PNP disabled.

8 years agovgacon: check for efi machine
Yannick Heneault [Thu, 13 Jan 2011 01:00:04 +0000]
vgacon: check for efi machine

It seems there is a small problem of VGA palette corruption on EFI
machine.  When the kernel initializes the architecture, it checks if the
machine is a EFI machine and assumes that a VGA console can exist.

When it initializes the console in vgacon_startup it checks if it can
really use the VGA console.  I think this is where a check is missing.
Currently, the function can fail if a VESA boot mode is detected but not if
a EFI boot mode was used.

Thus vgacon_startup() doesn't fail and initialize the video card for a real
VGA mode.  This function changes the first 16entries of the VGA palette.

When the efifb driver kicks in, the palette is not restored to default
ramp value, thus the 16 first entry remain in a modified state.  The
following patch prevent this corruption.
