10 years agokeys: Handle there being no fallback destination keyring for request_key()
David Howells [Thu, 9 Apr 2009 16:14:05 +0000]
keys: Handle there being no fallback destination keyring for request_key()

When request_key() is called, without there being any standard process
keyrings on which to fall back if a destination keyring is not specified, an
oops is liable to occur when construct_alloc_key() calls down_write() on
dest_keyring's semaphore.

Due to function inlining this may be seen as an oops in down_write() as called
from request_key_and_link().

This situation crops up during boot, where request_key() is called from within
the kernel (such as in CIFS mounts) where nobody is actually logged in, and so
PAM has not had a chance to create a session keyring and user keyrings to act
as the fallback.

To fix this, make construct_alloc_key() not attempt to cache a key if there is
no fallback key if no destination keyring is given specifically.

10 years agosched: do not count frozen tasks toward load
Nathan Lynch [Thu, 9 Apr 2009 00:45:12 +0000]
sched: do not count frozen tasks toward load

Freezing tasks via the cgroup freezer causes the load average to climb
because the freezer's current implementation puts frozen tasks in
uninterruptible sleep (D state).

Some applications which perform job-scheduling functions consult the
load average when making decisions.  If a cgroup is frozen, the load
average does not provide a useful measure of the system's utilization
to such applications.  This is especially inconvenient if the job
scheduler employs the cgroup freezer as a mechanism for preempting low
priority jobs.  Contrast this with using SIGSTOP for the same purpose:
the stopped tasks do not count toward system load.

Change task_contributes_to_load() to return false if the task is
frozen.  This results in /proc/loadavg behavior that better meets
users' expectations.

tracing/syscalls: use a dedicated file header

Impact: fix build warnings and possibe compat misbehavior on IA64

Building a kernel on ia64 might trigger these ugly build warnings:

CC arch/ia64/ia32/sys_ia32.o
In file included from arch/ia64/ia32/sys_ia32.c:55:
arch/ia64/ia32/ia32priv.h:290:1: warning: "elf_check_arch" redefined

arch/ia64/include/asm/elf.h:19:1: warning: this is the location of the previous definition
[...]

sys_ia32.c includes linux/syscalls.h which in turn includes linux/ftrace.h
to import the syscalls tracing prototypes.

But including ftrace.h can pull too much things for a low level file,
especially on ia64 where the ia32 private headers conflict with higher
level headers.

Now we isolate the syscall tracing headers in their own lightweight file.

10 years agowork_on_cpu(): rewrite it to create a kernel thread on demand
Andrew Morton [Thu, 9 Apr 2009 15:50:37 +0000]
work_on_cpu(): rewrite it to create a kernel thread on demand

Impact: circular locking bugfix

The various implemetnations and proposed implemetnations of work_on_cpu()
are vulnerable to various deadlocks because they all used queues of some
form.

Unrelated pieces of kernel code thus gained dependencies wherein if one
work_on_cpu() caller holds a lock which some other work_on_cpu() callback
also takes, the kernel could rarely deadlock.

Fix this by creating a short-lived kernel thread for each work_on_cpu()
invokation.

This is not terribly fast, but the only current caller of work_on_cpu() is
pci_call_probe().

It would be nice to find some other way of doing the node-local
allocations in the PCI probe code so that we can zap work_on_cpu()
altogether.  The code there is rather nasty.  I can't think of anything
simple at this time...

10 years agodm kcopyd: fix callback race
Mikulas Patocka [Wed, 8 Apr 2009 23:27:17 +0000]
dm kcopyd: fix callback race

If the thread calling dm_kcopyd_copy is delayed due to scheduling inside
split_job/segment_complete and the subjobs complete before the loop in
split_job completes, the kcopyd callback could be invoked from the
thread that called dm_kcopyd_copy instead of the kcopyd workqueue.

dm_kcopyd_copy -> split_job -> segment_complete -> job->fn()

Snapshots depend on the fact that callbacks are called from the singlethreaded
kcopyd workqueue and expect that there is no racing between individual
callbacks. The racing between callbacks can lead to corruption of exception
store and it can also mean that exception store callbacks are called twice
for the same exception - a likely reason for crashes reported inside
pending_complete() / remove_exception().

This patch fixes two problems:

1. job->fn being called from the thread that submitted the job (see above).

- Fix: hand over the completion callback to the kcopyd thread.

2. job->fn(read_err, write_err, job->context); in segment_complete
reports the error of the last subjob, not the union of all errors.

- Fix: pass job->write_err to the callback to report all error bits
  (it is done already in run_complete_job)

10 years agodm: implement basic barrier support
Mikulas Patocka [Wed, 8 Apr 2009 23:27:16 +0000]
dm: implement basic barrier support

Barriers are submitted to a worker thread that issues them in-order.

The thread is modified so that when it sees a barrier request it waits
for all pending IO before the request then submits the barrier and
waits for it.  (We must wait, otherwise it could be intermixed with
following requests.)

Errors from the barrier request are recorded in a per-device barrier_error
variable. There may be only one barrier request in progress at once.

For now, the barrier request is converted to a non-barrier request when
sending it to the underlying device.

This patch guarantees correct barrier behavior if the underlying device
doesn't perform write-back caching. The same requirement existed before
barriers were supported in dm.

Bottom layer barrier support (sending barriers by target drivers) and
handling devices with write-back caches will be done in further patches.

RDMA/nes: Fix nes_nic_cm_xmit() error handling

We are getting crash or hung situation when we are running network
cable pull tests during RDMA traffic.

In schedule_nes_timer(), we return an error if nes_nic_cm_xmit()
returns failure.  This is changed to success as skb is being put on
the timer routines to be processed later.  In send_syn() case, we are
indicating connect failure once from nes_connect() and the other when
the rexmit retries expires.

The other issue is skb->users which we are incrementing before calling
nes_nic_cm_xmit() which calls dev_queue_xmit() but in case of failure
we are decrementing the skb->users at the same time putting the skb on
the rexmit path.  Even if dev_queue_xmit() fails, the skb->users is
decremented already.  We are removing the decrement of skb->users in
case of failure from both schedule_nes_timer() as well as from
nes_cm_timer_tick().

There is also extra check in nes_cm_timer_tick() for rexmit failure
which does a break from the loop is removed.  This causes problem as
the other nodes have their cm_node->ref_count incremented and are not
processed.

Yossi Etigin [Wed, 8 Apr 2009 20:42:33 +0000]
RDMA/cma: Create cm id even when IB port is down

When doing rdma_resolve_addr(), if the relevant IB port is down, the
function fails and the cm_id is not bound to the correct device.
Therefore, application does not have a device handle and cannot wait
for the port to become active.  The function fails because the
underlying IPoIB interface is not joined to the broadcast group and
therefore the SA does not have a multicast record to take a Q_Key
from.

The fix is to use lazy Q_Key resolution - cma_set_qkey() will set
id_priv->qkey if it was not set, and will be called just before the
Q_Key is really required.

[ARM] 5445/1: AT91: Remove flexible array from USBH platform data

The flexible array in the USBH platform data is not safe to copy.  The
compiler will not allocate any extra memory for the non-init platform
data structure (in the *_devices.c files) since it isn't given any

that array, it will actually attempt to access data in an adjacent
structure.

Since there are currently no (known) implementations of the at91 USBH
IP with more than 2 vbus pins, I am capping the value at 2.  If somebody

10 years agoposix-timers: fix RLIMIT_CPU && setitimer(CPUCLOCK_PROF)
Oleg Nesterov [Fri, 27 Mar 2009 00:06:10 +0000]
posix-timers: fix RLIMIT_CPU && setitimer(CPUCLOCK_PROF)

update_rlimit_cpu() tries to optimize out set_process_cpu_timer() in case
when we already have CPUCLOCK_PROF timer which should expire first. But it
uses cputime_lt() instead of cputime_gt().

Test case:

int main(void)
{
struct itimerval it = {
.it_value = { .tv_sec = 1000 },
};

assert(!setitimer(ITIMER_PROF, &it, NULL));

struct rlimit rl = {
.rlim_cur = 1,
.rlim_max = 1,
};

assert(!setrlimit(RLIMIT_CPU, &rl));

for (;;)
;

return 0;
}

Without this patch, the task is not killed as RLIMIT_CPU demands.

10 years agoposix-timers: fix RLIMIT_CPU && fork()
Oleg Nesterov [Fri, 27 Mar 2009 00:06:07 +0000]
posix-timers: fix RLIMIT_CPU && fork()

See http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12911

copy_signal() copies signal->rlim, but RLIMIT_CPU is "lost". Because
posix_cpu_timers_init_group() sets cputime_expires.prof_exp = 0 and thus
fastpath_timer_check() returns false unless we have other expired cpu timers.

Change copy_signal() to set cputime_expires.prof_exp if we have RLIMIT_CPU.
Also, set cputimer.running = 1 in that case. This is not strictly necessary,
but imho makes sense.
