13 years agoThe NFSv2/NFSv3 server does not handle zero length WRITE requests correctly
Peter Staubach [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:34:48 +0000]
The NFSv2/NFSv3 server does not handle zero length WRITE requests correctly

The NFSv2 and NFSv3 servers do not handle WRITE requests for 0 bytes
correctly.  The specifications indicate that the server should accept the
request, but it should mostly turn into a no-op.  Currently, the server
will return an XDR decode error, which it should not.

Attached is a patch which addresses this issue.  It also adds some boundary
checking to ensure that the request contains as much data as was requested
to be written.  It also correctly handles an NFSv3 request which requests
to write more data than the server has stated that it is prepared to
handle.  Previously, there was some support which looked like it should
work, but wasn't quite right.

13 years agomake cancel_rearming_delayed_work() reliable
Oleg Nesterov [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:34:46 +0000]
make cancel_rearming_delayed_work() reliable

Thanks to Jarek Poplawski for the ideas and for spotting the bug in the
initial draft patch.

cancel_rearming_delayed_work() currently has many limitations, because it
requires that dwork always re-arms itself via queue_delayed_work().  So it
hangs forever if dwork doesn't do this, or cancel_rearming_delayed_work/
cancel_delayed_work was already called.  It uses flush_workqueue() in a
loop, so it can't be used if workqueue was freezed, and it is potentially
live- lockable on busy system if delay is small.

With this patch cancel_rearming_delayed_work() doesn't make any assumptions
about dwork, it can re-arm itself via queue_delayed_work(), or
queue_work(), or do nothing.

As a "side effect", cancel_work_sync() was changed to handle re-arming works
as well.

Disadvantages:

- this patch adds wmb() to insert_work().

- slowdowns the fast path (when del_timer() succeeds on entry) of
  cancel_rearming_delayed_work(), because wait_on_work() is called
  unconditionally. In that case, compared to the old version, we are
  doing "unneeded" lock/unlock for each online CPU.

  On the other hand, this means we don't need to use cancel_work_sync()
  after cancel_rearming_delayed_work().

- complicates the code (.text grows by 130 bytes).

13 years agochange kernel threads to ignore signals instead of blocking them
Oleg Nesterov [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:34:37 +0000]
change kernel threads to ignore signals instead of blocking them

Currently kernel threads use sigprocmask(SIG_BLOCK) to protect against
signals.  This doesn't prevent the signal delivery, this only blocks
signal_wake_up().  Every "killall -33 kthreadd" means a "struct siginfo"
leak.

Change kthreadd_setup() to set all handlers to SIG_IGN instead of blocking
them (make a new helper ignore_signals() for that).  If the kernel thread
needs some signal, it should use allow_signal() anyway, and in that case it
should not use CLONE_SIGHAND.

Note that we can't change daemonize() (should die!) in the same way,
because it can be used along with CLONE_SIGHAND.  This means that
allow_signal() still should unblock the signal to work correctly with
daemonize()ed threads.

However, disallow_signal() doesn't block the signal any longer but ignores
it.

NOTE: with or without this patch the kernel threads are not protected from
handle_stop_signal(), this seems harmless, but not good.

13 years agokthread: don't depend on work queues
Eric W. Biederman [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:34:32 +0000]
kthread: don't depend on work queues

Currently there is a circular reference between work queue initialization
and kthread initialization.  This prevents the kthread infrastructure from
initializing until after work queues have been initialized.

We want the properties of tasks created with kthread_create to be as close
as possible to the init_task and to not be contaminated by user processes.
The later we start our kthreadd that creates these tasks the harder it is
to avoid contamination from user processes and the more of a mess we have
to clean up because the defaults have changed on us.

So this patch modifies the kthread support to not use work queues but to
instead use a simple list of structures, and to have kthreadd start from
init_task immediately after our kernel thread that execs /sbin/init.

By being a true child of init_task we only have to change those process
settings that we want to have different from init_task, such as our process
name, the cpus that are allowed, blocking all signals and setting SIGCHLD
to SIG_IGN so that all of our children are reaped automatically.

By being a true child of init_task we also naturally get our ppid set to 0
and do not wind up as a child of PID == 1.  Ensuring that tasks generated
by kthread_create will not slow down the functioning of the wait family of
functions.

Also, rename flush_work() to cancel_work_sync() and fix all callers.

simplify the code. Lessens .text a bit, and imho makes the code more readable.

13 years agoworkqueue: make cancel_rearming_delayed_workqueue() work on idle dwork
Oleg Nesterov [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:34:11 +0000]
workqueue: make cancel_rearming_delayed_workqueue() work on idle dwork

cancel_rearming_delayed_workqueue(dwork) will hang forever if dwork was not
scheduled, because in that case cancel_delayed_work()->del_timer_sync() never
returns true.

I don't know if there are any callers which may have problems, but this is not
so convenient, and the fix is very simple.

Q: looks like we don't need "struct workqueue_struct *wq" parameter.  If the
timer was aborted successfully, get_wq_data() == wq.  Is it worth to add the
new function?

13 years agoworkqueue: don't migrate pending works from the dead CPU
Oleg Nesterov [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:34:09 +0000]
workqueue: don't migrate pending works from the dead CPU

Currently CPU_DEAD uses kthread_stop() to stop cwq->thread and then
transfers cwq->worklist to another CPU.  However, it is very unlikely that
worker_thread() will notice kthread_should_stop() before flushing
cwq->worklist.  It is only possible if worker_thread() was preempted after
run_workqueue(cwq), a new work_struct was added, and CPU_DEAD happened
before cwq->thread has a chance to run.

This means that take_over_work() mostly adds unneeded complications.  Note
also that kthread_stop() is not good per se, wake_up_process() may confuse
work->func() if it sleeps waiting for some event.

Remove take_over_work() and migrate_sequence complications.  CPU_DEAD sets
the cwq->should_stop flag (introduced by this patch) and waits for
cwq->thread to flush cwq->worklist and exit.  Because the dead CPU is not
on cpu_online_map, no more works can be added to that cwq.

cpu_populated_map was introduced to optimize for_each_possible_cpu(), it is
not strictly needed, and it is more a documentation in fact.

Saves 418 bytes.

Pointed out by Srivatsa Vaddagiri.

cleanup_workqueue_thread() sets cwq->thread = NULL and does kthread_stop().
This breaks the "if (cwq->thread == current)" logic in flush_cpu_workqueue()
and leads to deadlock.

Kill the thead first, then clear cwq->thread. workqueue_mutex protects us
from create_workqueue_thread() so we don't need cwq->lock.

13 years agoworkqueue: fix flush_workqueue() vs CPU_DEAD race
Oleg Nesterov [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:34:07 +0000]
workqueue: fix flush_workqueue() vs CPU_DEAD race

Many thanks to Srivatsa Vaddagiri for the helpful discussion and for spotting
the bug in my previous attempt.

work->func() (and thus flush_workqueue()) must not use workqueue_mutex,
this leads to deadlock when CPU_DEAD does kthread_stop(). However without
this mutex held we can't detect CPU_DEAD in progress, which can move pending
works to another CPU while the dead one is not on cpu_online_map.

Change flush_workqueue() to use for_each_possible_cpu(). This means that
flush_cpu_workqueue() may hit CPU which is already dead. However in that
case

!list_empty(&cwq->worklist) || cwq->current_work != NULL

means that CPU_DEAD in progress, it will do kthread_stop() + take_over_work()
so we can proceed and insert a barrier. We hold cwq->lock, so we are safe.

Also, add migrate_sequence incremented by take_over_work() under cwq->lock.
If take_over_work() happened before we checked this CPU, we should see the
new value after spin_unlock().

Further possible changes:

remove CPU_DEAD handling (along with take_over_work, migrate_sequence)
from workqueue.c. CPU_DEAD just sets cwq->please_exit_after_flush flag.

CPU_UP_PREPARE->create_workqueue_thread() clears this flag, and creates
the new thread if cwq->thread == NULL.

This way the workqueue/cpu-hotplug interaction is almost zero, workqueue_mutex
just protects "workqueues" list, CPU_LOCK_ACQUIRE/CPU_LOCK_RELEASE go away.

13 years agoDefine and use new events,CPU_LOCK_ACQUIRE and CPU_LOCK_RELEASE
Gautham R Shenoy [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:34:03 +0000]
Define and use new events,CPU_LOCK_ACQUIRE and CPU_LOCK_RELEASE

This is an attempt to provide an alternate mechanism for postponing
a hotplug event instead of using a global mechanism like lock_cpu_hotplug.

The proposal is to add two new events namely CPU_LOCK_ACQUIRE and
CPU_LOCK_RELEASE. The notification for these two events would be sent
out before and after a cpu_hotplug event respectively.

During the CPU_LOCK_ACQUIRE event, a cpu-hotplug-aware subsystem is
supposed to acquire any per-subsystem hotcpu mutex ( Eg. workqueue_mutex
in kernel/workqueue.c ).

During the CPU_LOCK_RELEASE release event the cpu-hotplug-aware subsystem
is supposed to release the per-subsystem hotcpu mutex.

The reasons for defining new events as opposed to reusing the existing events
like CPU_UP_PREPARE/CPU_UP_FAILED/CPU_ONLINE for locking/unlocking of
per-subsystem hotcpu mutexes are as follow:

- CPU_LOCK_ACQUIRE: All hotcpu mutexes are taken before subsystems
start handling pre-hotplug events like CPU_UP_PREPARE/CPU_DOWN_PREPARE
etc, thus ensuring a clean handling of these events.

- CPU_LOCK_RELEASE: The hotcpu mutexes will be released only after
all subsystems have handled post-hotplug events like CPU_DOWN_FAILED,
CPU_DEAD,CPU_ONLINE etc thereby ensuring that there are no subsequent
clashes amongst the interdependent subsystems after a cpu hotplugs.

This patch also uses __raw_notifier_call chain in _cpu_up to take care
of the dependency between the two consequetive calls to
raw_notifier_call_chain.

13 years agoExtend notifier_call_chain to count nr_calls made
Gautham R Shenoy [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:34:02 +0000]
Extend notifier_call_chain to count nr_calls made

Since 2.6.18-something, the community has been bugged by the problem to
provide a clean and a stable mechanism to postpone a cpu-hotplug event as
lock_cpu_hotplug was badly broken.

This is another proposal towards solving that problem.  This one is along the
lines of the solution provided in kernel/workqueue.c

Instead of having a global mechanism like lock_cpu_hotplug, we allow the
subsytems to define their own per-subsystem hot cpu mutexes.  These would be
taken(released) where ever we are currently calling
lock_cpu_hotplug(unlock_cpu_hotplug).

Also, in the per-subsystem hotcpu callback function,we take this mutex before
we handle any pre-cpu-hotplug events and release it once we finish handling
the post-cpu-hotplug events.  A standard means for doing this has been
provided in [PATCH 2/4] and demonstrated in [PATCH 3/4].

The ordering of these per-subsystem mutexes might still prove to be a
problem, but hopefully lockdep should help us get out of that muddle.

The patch set to be applied against linux-2.6.19-rc5 is as follows:

[PATCH 1/4] : Extend notifier_call_chain with an option to specify the
number of notifications to be sent and also count the
number of notifications actually sent.

[PATCH 2/4] : Define events CPU_LOCK_ACQUIRE and CPU_LOCK_RELEASE
and send out notifications for these in _cpu_up and
_cpu_down. This would help us standardise the acquire and
release of the subsystem locks in the hotcpu
callback functions of these subsystems.

[PATCH 3/4] : Eliminate lock_cpu_hotplug from kernel/sched.c.

[PATCH 4/4] : In workqueue_cpu_callback function, acquire(release) the
workqueue_mutex while handling
CPU_LOCK_ACQUIRE(CPU_LOCK_RELEASE).

If the per-subsystem-locking approach survives the test of time, we can expect
a slow phasing out of lock_cpu_hotplug, which has not yet been eliminated in
these patches :)

This patch:

Provide notifier_call_chain with an option to call only a specified number of
notifiers and also record the number of call to notifiers made.

The need for this enhancement was identified in the post entitled
"Slab - Eliminate lock_cpu_hotplug from slab"
(http://lkml.org/lkml/2006/10/28/92) by Ravikiran G Thirumalai and
Andrew Morton.

This patch adds two additional parameters to notifier_call_chain API namely
 - int nr_to_calls : Number of notifier_functions to be called.
       The don't care value is -1.

 - unsigned int *nr_calls : Records the total number of notifier_funtions
    called by notifier_call_chain. The don't care
    value is NULL.

13 years agoimplement flush_work()
Oleg Nesterov [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:33:52 +0000]
implement flush_work()

A basic problem with flush_scheduled_work() is that it blocks behind _all_
presently-queued works, rather than just the work whcih the caller wants to
flush.  If the caller holds some lock, and if one of the queued work happens
to want that lock as well then accidental deadlocks can occur.

One example of this is the phy layer: it wants to flush work while holding
rtnl_lock().  But if a linkwatch event happens to be queued, the phy code will
deadlock because the linkwatch callback function takes rtnl_lock.

So we implement a new function which will flush a *single* work - just the one
which the caller wants to free up.  Thus we avoid the accidental deadlocks
which can arise from unrelated subsystems' callbacks taking shared locks.

flush_work() non-blockingly dequeues the work_struct which we want to kill,
then it waits for its handler to complete on all CPUs.

Add ->current_work to the "struct cpu_workqueue_struct", it points to
currently running "struct work_struct". When flush_work(work) detects
->current_work == work, it inserts a barrier at the _head_ of ->worklist
(and thus right _after_ that work) and waits for completition. This means
that the next work fired on that CPU will be this barrier, or another
barrier queued by concurrent flush_work(), so the caller of flush_work()
will be woken before any "regular" work has a chance to run.

When wait_on_work() unlocks workqueue_mutex (or whatever we choose to protect
against CPU hotplug), CPU may go away. But in that case take_over_work() will
move a barrier we queued to another CPU, it will be fired sometime, and
wait_on_work() will be woken.

Actually, we are doing cleanup_workqueue_thread()->kthread_stop() before
take_over_work(), so cwq->thread should complete its ->worklist (and thus
the barrier), because currently we don't check kthread_should_stop() in
run_workqueue(). But even if we did, everything should be ok.

Remove ->remove_sequence, ->insert_sequence, and ->work_done from struct

barrier work on each CPU and wait for its completition.

The barrier is queued under workqueue_mutex to ensure that per cpu

down while we are waiting for completition, take_over_work() will move the

Haavard Skinnemoen [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:33:47 +0000]
Use common cpu_is_xxx() macros on AT91 and AVR32

Several drivers shared between AT91 and AVR32 chips use cpu_is_xxx()
to handle CPU-specific differences. Currently, such code needs to be
inside #ifdef CONFIG_ARCH_AT91 because the macros don't exist on AVR32.

By defining the same macros on both AT91 and AVR32, these #ifdefs can
be eliminated. Since the macros will evaluate to a constant value for
CPUs that aren't supported by the current architecture, any code that
is only needed on AT91 will be optimized away on AVR32 and vice versa.

AFS: implement basic file write support

Implement support for writing to regular AFS files, including:

 (1) write

 (2) truncate

 (3) fsync, fdatasync

 (4) chmod, chown, chgrp, utime.

AFS writeback attempts to batch writes into as chunks as large as it can manage
up to the point that it writes back 65535 pages in one chunk or it meets a
locked page.

Furthermore, if a page has been written to using a particular key, then should
another write to that page use some other key, the first write will be flushed
before the second is allowed to take place.  If the first write fails due to a
security error, then the page will be scrapped and reread before the second
write takes place.

If a page is dirty and the callback on it is broken by the server, then the
dirty data is not discarded (same behaviour as NFS).

Shared-writable mappings are not supported by this patch.

Paul Fulghum [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:33:38 +0000]
tty_set_ldisc() receive_room fix

Fix tty_set_ldisc in tty_io.c so that tty->receive_room is only cleared if
actually changing line disciplines.

Without this fix a problem occurs when requesting the line discipline to
change to the same line discipline.  In this case tty->receive_room is
cleared but ldisc->open() is not called to set tty->receive_room back to a
sane value.  The result is that tty->receive_room is stuck at 0 preventing
the tty flip buffer from passing receive data to the line discipline.

For example: a switch from N_TTY to N_TTY followed by a select() call for
read input results in data never being received because tty->receive_room
is stuck at zero.

A switch from N_TTY to N_TTY followed by a read() call works because the
read() call itself sets tty->receive_room correctly (but select does not).

Previously (< 2.6.18) this was not a problem because the tty flip buffer
pushed data to the line discipline without regard for tty->receive room.

13 years agopretend cpuset has some form of hugetlb page reservation
Ken Chen [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:33:34 +0000]
pretend cpuset has some form of hugetlb page reservation

When cpuset is configured, it breaks the strict hugetlb page reservation as
the accounting is done on a global variable.  Such reservation is
completely rubbish in the presence of cpuset because the reservation is not
checked against page availability for the current cpuset.  Application can
still potentially OOM'ed by kernel with lack of free htlb page in cpuset
that the task is in.  Attempt to enforce strict accounting with cpuset is
almost impossible (or too ugly) because cpuset is too fluid that task or
memory node can be dynamically moved between cpusets.

The change of semantics for shared hugetlb mapping with cpuset is
undesirable.  However, in order to preserve some of the semantics, we fall
back to check against current free page availability as a best attempt and
hopefully to minimize the impact of changing semantics that cpuset has on
hugetlb.

Notice that hard_smp_processor_id is only used by SMP code or by code that
works with apics so we do not need to handle the case when apics are not

13 years agoUse the APIC to determine the hardware processor id - i386
Fernando Luis Vazquez Cao [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:33:27 +0000]
Use the APIC to determine the hardware processor id - i386

hard_smp_processor_id used to be just a macro that hard-coded
hard_smp_processor_id to 0 in the non SMP case.  When booting non SMP kernels
on hardware where the boot ioapic id is not 0 this turns out to be a problem.
This is happens frequently in the case of kdump and once in a great while in
the case of real hardware.

Use the APIC to determine the hardware processor id in both UP and SMP kernels
to fix this issue.

Notice that hard_smp_processor_id is only used by SMP code or by code that
works with apics so we do not need to handle the case when apics are not
present and hard_smp_processor_id should never be called there.

13 years agoRemove hardcoding of hard_smp_processor_id on UP systems
Fernando Luis Vazquez Cao [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:33:25 +0000]
Remove hardcoding of hard_smp_processor_id on UP systems

With the advent of kdump, the assumption that the boot CPU when booting an UP
kernel is always the CPU with a particular hardware ID (often 0) (usually
referred to as BSP on some architectures) is not valid anymore.  The reason
being that the dump capture kernel boots on the crashed CPU (the CPU that
invoked crash_kexec), which may be or may not be that particular CPU.

Move definition of hard_smp_processor_id for the UP case to
architecture-specific code ("asm/smp.h") where it belongs, so that each
architecture can provide its own implementation.

13 years agofix leaky resv_huge_pages when cpuset is in use
Ken Chen [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:33:09 +0000]
fix leaky resv_huge_pages when cpuset is in use

The internal hugetlb resv_huge_pages variable can permanently leak nonzero
value in the error path of hugetlb page fault handler when hugetlb page is
used in combination of cpuset.  The leaked count can permanently trap N
number of hugetlb pages in unusable "reserved" state.

Steps to reproduce the bug:

  (1) create two cpuset, user1 and user2
  (2) reserve 50 htlb pages in cpuset user1
  (3) attempt to shmget/shmat 50 htlb page inside cpuset user2
  (4) kernel oom the user process in step 3
  (5) ipcrm the shm segment

At this point resv_huge_pages will have a count of 49, even though
there are no active hugetlbfs file nor hugetlb shared memory segment
in the system.  The leak is permanent and there is no recovery method
other than system reboot. The leaked count will hold up all future use
of that many htlb pages in all cpusets.

The culprit is that the error path of alloc_huge_page() did not
properly undo the change it made to resv_huge_page, causing
inconsistent state.

dm log: fix resume failed log device

This patch removes the possibility of having uninitialized log state if the
log device has failed.

When a mirror resumes operation, it calls 'resume' on the logging module.  If
disk based logging is being used, the log device is read to fill in the log
state.  If the log device has failed, we cannot simply return, because this
would leave the in-memory log state uninitialized.  Instead, we assume all
regions are out-of-sync and reset the log state.  Failure to do this could
result in the logging code reporting a region as in-sync, even though it
isn't; which could result in a corrupted mirror.

dm raid1: fix to commit pending clear region requests

With the code as it is, it is possible for oustanding clear region requests
never to get flushed when a mirror is deactivated or suspended.  This means
there will always be some resync work required when a mirror is activated,
even though it may very well be in-sync.

Always requesting the flush doesn't hurt us.  This is because the log tracks
whether any changes occurred and, if not, no flush is performed.
