10 years agonilfs2: avoid double error caused by nilfs_transaction_end
Ryusuke Konishi [Tue, 7 Apr 2009 02:01:45 +0000]
nilfs2: avoid double error caused by nilfs_transaction_end

Pekka Enberg pointed out that double error handlings found after
nilfs_transaction_end() can be avoided by separating abort operation:

 OK, I don't understand this. The only way nilfs_transaction_end() can
 fail is if we have NILFS_TI_SYNC set and we fail to construct the
 segment. But why do we want to construct a segment if we don't commit?

 I guess what I'm asking is why don't we have a separate
 nilfs_transaction_abort() function that can't fail for the erroneous
 case to avoid this double error value tracking thing?

This does the separation and renames nilfs_transaction_end() to
nilfs_transaction_commit() for clarification.

Since, some calls of these functions were used just for exclusion control
against the segment constructor, they are replaced with semaphore
operations.

10 years agonilfs2: fix problems of memory allocation in ioctl
Ryusuke Konishi [Tue, 7 Apr 2009 02:01:43 +0000]
nilfs2: fix problems of memory allocation in ioctl

This is another patch for fixing the following problems of a memory
copy function in nilfs2 ioctl:

(1) It tries to allocate 128KB size of memory even for small objects.

(2) Though the function repeatedly tries large memory allocations
    while reducing the size, GFP_NOWAIT flag is not specified.
    This increases the possibility of system memory shortage.

(3) During the retries of (2), verbose warnings are printed
    because _GFP_NOWARN flag is not used for the kmalloc calls.

The first patch was still doing large allocations by kmalloc which are
repeatedly tried while reducing the size.

Andi Kleen told me that using copy_from_user for large memory is not
good from the viewpoint of preempt latency:

For the function in question, the size of buffer memory can be reduced
since the buffer is repeatedly used for a number of small objects.  On
the other hand, it may incur large preempt latencies for larger buffer
because a copy_from_user (and a copy_to_user) was applied only once
each cycle.

With that, this revision uses the order 0 allocations with
__get_free_pages() to fix the original problems.

On Wed, 17 Dec 2008 21:52:55 -0500, Chris Mason wrote:
> It looks like nilfs_writepage ignores WB_SYNC_NONE, which is used by

where WB_SYNC_NONE in do_sync_mapping_range() was replaced with
WB_SYNC_ALL by Nick's patch (commit:
ee53a891f47444c53318b98dac947ede963db400).

This fixes the problem by letting nilfs_writepages() write out the log of
file data within the range if sync_mode is WB_SYNC_ALL.

This involves removal of nilfs_file_aio_write() which was previously
needed to ensure O_SYNC sync writes.

10 years agonilfs2: buffer and page operations
Ryusuke Konishi [Tue, 7 Apr 2009 02:01:27 +0000]
nilfs2: buffer and page operations

This adds common routines for buffer/page operations used in B-tree
node caches, meta data files, or segment constructor (log writer).

NILFS uses copy functions for buffers and pages due to the following
reasons:

 1) Relocation required for COW
    Since NILFS changes address of on-disk blocks, moving buffers
    in page cache is needed for the buffers which are not addressed
    by a file offset.  If buffer size is smaller than page size,
    this involves partial copy of pages.

 2) Freezing mmapped pages
    NILFS calculates checksums for each log to ensure its validity.
    If page data changes after the checksum calculation, this validity
    check will not work correctly.  To avoid this failure for mmaped
    pages, NILFS freezes their data by copying.

 3) Copy-on-write for DAT pages
    NILFS makes clones of DAT page caches in a copy-on-write manner
    during GC processes, and this ensures atomicity and consistency
    of the DAT in the transient state.

In addition, NILFS uses two obsolete functions, nilfs_mark_buffer_dirty()
and nilfs_clear_page_dirty() respectively.

* nilfs_mark_buffer_dirty() was required to avoid NULL pointer
  dereference faults:

  Since the page cache of B-tree node pages or data page cache of pseudo
  inodes does not have a valid mapping->host, calling mark_buffer_dirty()
  for their buffers causes the fault; it calls __mark_inode_dirty(NULL)
  through __set_page_dirty().

* nilfs_clear_page_dirty() was needed in the two cases:

 1) For B-tree node pages and data pages of the dat/gcdat, NILFS2 clears
    page dirty flags when it copies back pages from the cloned cache
    (gcdat->{i_mapping,i_btnode_cache}) to its original cache
    (dat->{i_mapping,i_btnode_cache}).

 2) Some B-tree operations like insertion or deletion may dispose buffers
    in dirty state, and this needs to cancel the dirty state of their
    pages.  clear_page_dirty_for_io() caused faults because it does not
    clear the dirty tag on the page cache.

10 years agonilfs2: integrated block mapping
Koji Sato [Tue, 7 Apr 2009 02:01:23 +0000]
nilfs2: integrated block mapping

This adds structures and operations for the block mapping (bmap for
short).  NILFS2 uses direct mappings for short files or B-tree based
mappings for longer files.

Every on-disk data block is held with inodes and managed through this
block mapping.  The nilfs_bmap structure and a set of functions here
provide this capability to the NILFS2 inode.

10 years agonilfs2: add inode and other major structures
Ryusuke Konishi [Tue, 7 Apr 2009 02:01:23 +0000]
nilfs2: add inode and other major structures

This adds the following common structures of the NILFS2 file system.

* nilfs_inode_info structure:
  gives on-memory inode.

* nilfs_sb_info structure:
  keeps per-mount state and a special inode for the ifile.
  This structure is attached to the super_block structure.

* the_nilfs structure:
  keeps shared state and locks among a read/write mount and snapshot
  mounts.  This keeps special inodes for the sufile, cpfile, dat, and
  another dat inode used during GC (gcdat).  This also has a hash table
  of dummy inodes to cache disk blocks during GC (gcinodes).

* nilfs_transaction_info structure:
  keeps per task state while nilfs is writing logs or doing indivisible
  inode or namespace operations.  This structure is used to identify
  context during log making and store nest level of the lock which
  ensures atomicity of file system operations.

10 years agonamespaces: ipc namespaces: implement support for posix msqueues
Serge E. Hallyn [Tue, 7 Apr 2009 02:01:10 +0000]
namespaces: ipc namespaces: implement support for posix msqueues

Implement multiple mounts of the mqueue file system, and link it to usage
of CLONE_NEWIPC.

Each ipc ns has a corresponding mqueuefs superblock.  When a user does
clone(CLONE_NEWIPC) or unshare(CLONE_NEWIPC), the unshare will cause an
internal mount of a new mqueuefs sb linked to the new ipc ns.

When a user does 'mount -t mqueue mqueue /dev/mqueue', he mounts the
mqueuefs superblock.

Posix message queues can be worked with both through the mq_* system calls
(see mq_overview(7)), and through the VFS through the mqueue mount.  Any
usage of mq_open() and friends will work with the acting task's ipc
namespace.  Any actions through the VFS will work with the mqueuefs in
which the file was created.  So if a user doesn't remount mqueuefs after
unshare(CLONE_NEWIPC), mq_open("/ab") will not be reflected in "ls
/dev/mqueue".

If task a mounts mqueue for ipc_ns:1, then clones task b with a new ipcns,
ipcns:2, and then task a is the last task in ipc_ns:1 to exit, then (1)
ipc_ns:1 will be freed, (2) it's superblock will live on until task b
umounts the corresponding mqueuefs, and vfs actions will continue to
succeed, but (3) sb->s_fs_info will be NULL for the sb corresponding to
the deceased ipc_ns:1.

To make this happen, we must protect the ipc reference count when

a) a task exits and drops its ipcns->count, since it might be dropping
   it to 0 and freeing the ipcns

b) a task accesses the ipcns through its mqueuefs interface, since it
   bumps the ipcns refcount and might race with the last task in the ipcns
   exiting.

So the kref is changed to an atomic_t so we can use
atomic_dec_and_lock(&ns->count,mq_lock), and every access to the ipcns
through ns = mqueuefs_sb->s_fs_info is protected by the same lock.

Move mqueue vfsmount plus a few tunables into the ipc_namespace struct.
The CONFIG_IPC_NS boolean and the ipc_namespace struct will serve both the

Mike Rapoport [Tue, 7 Apr 2009 02:00:56 +0000]
SPI: add dma_alignment field to spi_master

Some SPI controllers have restrictions on DMAable buffers alignemt.
Currently if the buffer supplied by protocol driver is not properly
aligned, the controller silently performs transfer in PIO mode.  Addition
of dma_alignment field to spi_master allows protocol drivers to perform
proper alignment.

Wolfgang Muees [Tue, 7 Apr 2009 02:00:53 +0000]
Blackfin SPI Driver: Make mmc_spi driver work on Blackfin

1. Rewrite of the non-dma data transfer functions to use only ONE mode
   of TIMOD (TIMOD=0x1).  With TIMOD=0, it was not possible to set the TX
   bit pattern.  So the TDBR = 0xFFFF inside the read calls won't work.

2. Clear SPI_RDBR before reading and before duplex transfer.
   Otherwise the garbage data in RDBR will get read.  Since mmc_spi uses a
   lot of duplex transfers, this is the main cause of mmc_spi failure.

3. Poll RXS for transfer completion.  Polling SPIF or TXS cannot
   guarantee transfer completion.  This may interrupt a transfer before it
   is finished.  Also this may leave garbage data in buffer and affect
   next transfer.

Yi Li [Tue, 7 Apr 2009 02:00:49 +0000]
Blackfin SPI Driver: fix bug - correct usage of struct spi_transfer.cs_change

According to comments in linux/spi/spi.h:

 * All SPI transfers start with the relevant chipselect active.  Normally
 * it stays selected until after the last transfer in a message. Drivers
 * can affect the chipselect signal using cs_change.
 *
 * (i) If the transfer isn't the last one in the message, this flag is
 * used to make the chipselect briefly go inactive in the middle of the
 * message.  Toggling chipselect in this way may be needed to terminate
 * a chip command, letting a single spi_message perform all of group of
 * chip transactions together.
 *
 * (ii) When the transfer is the last one in the message, the chip may
 * stay selected until the next transfer.  On multi-device SPI busses
 * with nothing blocking messages going to other devices, this is just
 * a performance hint; starting a message to another device deselects
 * this one.  But in other cases, this can be used to ensure correctness.
 * Some devices need protocol transactions to be built from a series of
 * spi_message submissions, where the content of one message is determined
 * by the results of previous messages and where the whole transaction
 * ends when the chipselect goes intactive.

Yi Li [Tue, 7 Apr 2009 02:00:44 +0000]
Blackfin SPI Driver: fix bug - spi controller driver does not assert/deassert CS correctly

This bug can be observed when two SPI devices are sharing the spi bus: One
device is set as SPI CS 7, another one is using SPI CS 4.

In spi_bfin5xx.c: cs_active(), cs_deactive() are used to control SPI_FLG
register.  From the debug bellow:

cs_active: flag: 0x7f91, chip->flag: 0x7f80, cs: 7
cs_active: flag: 0xef91, chip->flag: 0xef10, cs: 4

When device A (cs_7) activate CS 7, SPI_FLG is set as 0x7f91 (however,
SPI_FLG should be set as 0x7f80, or 0x6f91 if in broadcast mode).

Due to some HW bug (very possibly), if SPI_FLG is set as 0x7f91, SPISSEL7
is asserted, however SPISSEL4 will be asserted too (I can see this using
the scope).  This is unreasonable according to HRM.

Peter W Morreale [Tue, 7 Apr 2009 02:00:29 +0000]
mm: add /proc controls for pdflush threads

Add /proc entries to give the admin the ability to control the minimum and
maximum number of pdflush threads.  This allows finer control of pdflush
on both large and small machines.

The rationale is simply one size does not fit all.  Admins on large and/or
small systems may want to tune the min/max pdflush thread count to best
suit their needs.  Right now the min/max is hardcoded to 2/8.  While
probably a fair estimate for smaller machines, large machines with large
numbers of CPUs and large numbers of filesystems/block devices may benefit
from larger numbers of threads working on different block devices.

Even if the background flushing algorithm is radically changed, it is
still likely that multiple threads will be involved and admins would still
desire finer control on the min/max other than to have to recompile the
kernel.

The patch adds '/proc/sys/vm/nr_pdflush_threads_min' and
'/proc/sys/vm/nr_pdflush_threads_max' with r/w permissions.

The minimum value for nr_pdflush_threads_min is 1 and the maximum value is
the current value of nr_pdflush_threads_max.  This minimum is required
since additional thread creation is performed in a pdflush thread itself.

The minimum value for nr_pdflush_threads_max is the current value of
nr_pdflush_threads_min and the maximum value can be 1000.

Documentation/sysctl/vm.txt is also updated.

10 years agomm: fix pdflush thread creation upper bound
Peter W Morreale [Tue, 7 Apr 2009 02:00:28 +0000]
mm: fix pdflush thread creation upper bound

Fix a race on creating pdflush threads.  Without the patch, it is possible
to create more than MAX_PDFLUSH_THREADS threads, and this has been
observed in practice on IO loaded SMP machines.

The fix involves moving the lock around to protect the check against the
thread count and correctly dealing with thread creation failure.

This fix also _mostly_ repairs a race condition on how quickly the threads
are created.  The original intent was to create a pdflush thread (up to
the max allowed) every second.  Without this patch is is possible to
create NCPUS pdflush threads concurrently.  The 'mostly' caveat is because
an assumption is made that thread creation will be successful.  If we fail
to create the thread, the miss is not considered fatal.  (we will try
again in 1 second)

10 years agoRevert "module: remove the SHF_ALLOC flag on the __versions section."
Rusty Russell [Tue, 7 Apr 2009 07:42:43 +0000]
Revert "module: remove the SHF_ALLOC flag on the __versions section."

This reverts commit 9cb610d8e35fe3ec95a2fe2030b02f85aeea83c1.

This was an impressively stupid patch.  Firstly, we reset the SHF_ALLOC
flag lower down in the same function, so the patch was useless.  Even
better, find_sec() ignores sections with SHF_ALLOC not set, so
it breaks CONFIG_MODVERSIONS=y with CONFIG_MODULE_FORCE_LOAD=n, which
refuses to load the module since it can't find the __versions section.

powerpc: Fix oops when loading modules

This fixes a problem reported by Sean MacLennan where loading any
module would cause an oops.  We weren't marking the pages containing
the module text as having hardware execute permission, due to a bug
introduced in commit 8d1cf34e ("powerpc/mm: Tweak PTE bit combination
definitions"), hence trying to execute the module text caused an
exception on processors that support hardware execute permission.

This adds _PAGE_HWEXEC to the definitions of PAGE_KERNEL_X and
PAGE_KERNEL_ROX to fix this problem.
