irq: use GFP_KERNEL for action allocation in request_irq()

request_irq() calls into proc code via __setup_irq() which is not safe
in an atomic context, so request_irq() can itself use the more
reliable GFP_KERNEL allocation for the action descriptor.

wimax: fix oops in wimax_dev_get_by_genl_info() when looking up non-wimax iface

When a non-wimax interface is looked up by the stack, a bad pointer is

Andrew Morton [Fri, 13 Feb 2009 00:43:17 +0000]
net: don't use in_atomic() in gfp_any()

The problem is that in_atomic() will return false inside spinlocks if
CONFIG_PREEMPT=n.  This will lead to deadlockable GFP_KERNEL allocations
from spinlocked regions.

Secondly, if CONFIG_PREEMPT=y, this bug solves itself because networking
will instead use GFP_ATOMIC from this callsite.  Hence we won't get the
might_sleep() debugging warnings which would have informed us of the buggy
callsites.

Solve both these problems by switching to in_interrupt().  Now, if someone
runs a gfp_any() allocation from inside spinlock we will get the warning
if CONFIG_PREEMPT=y.

I reviewed all callsites and most of them were too complex for my little

Nick Piggin [Thu, 12 Feb 2009 03:34:23 +0000]
Fix page writeback thinko, causing Berkeley DB slowdown

A bug was introduced into write_cache_pages cyclic writeout by commit
31a12666d8f0c22235297e1c1575f82061480029 ("mm: write_cache_pages cyclic
fix").  The intention (and comments) is that we should cycle back and
look for more dirty pages at the beginning of the file if there is no
more work to be done.

But the !done condition was dropped from the test.  This means that any
time the page writeout loop breaks (eg.  due to nr_to_write == 0), we
will set index to 0, then goto again.  This will set done_index to
index, then find done is set, so will proceed to the end of the
function.  When updating mapping->writeback_index for cyclic writeout,
we now use done_index == 0, so we're always cycling back to 0.

This seemed to be causing random mmap writes (slapadd and iozone) to
start writing more pages from the LRU and writeout would slowdown, and
caused bugzilla entry

http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12604

about Berkeley DB slowing down dramatically.

With this patch, iozone random write performance is increased nearly
5x on my system (iozone -B -r 4k -s 64k -s 512m -s 1200m on ext2).

Paul Clements [Wed, 11 Feb 2009 21:04:45 +0000]
nbd: fix I/O hang on disconnected nbds

Fix a problem that causes I/O to a disconnected (or partially initialized)
nbd device to hang indefinitely.  To reproduce:

# ioctl NBD_SET_SIZE_BLOCKS /dev/nbd23 514048
# dd if=/dev/nbd23 of=/dev/null bs=4096 count=1

...hangs...

This can also occur when an nbd device loses its nbd-client/server
connection.  Although we clear the queue of any outstanding I/Os after the
client/server connection fails, any additional I/Os that get queued later
will hang.

This bug may also be the problem reported in this bug report:
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12277

Testing would need to be performed to determine if the two issues are the
same.

This problem was introduced by the new request handling thread code ("NBD:
allow nbd to be used locally", 3/2008), which entered into mainline around
2.6.25.

The fix, which is fairly simple, is to restore the check for lo->sock
being NULL in do_nbd_request.  This causes I/O to an uninitialized nbd to
immediately fail with an I/O error, as it did prior to the introduction of
this bug.

10 years agomm: rearrange exit_mmap() to unlock before arch_exit_mmap
Jeremy Fitzhardinge [Wed, 11 Feb 2009 21:04:41 +0000]
mm: rearrange exit_mmap() to unlock before arch_exit_mmap

Christophe Saout reported [in precursor to:
http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=123209902707347&w=4]:

> Note that I also some a different issue with CONFIG_UNEVICTABLE_LRU.
> Seems like Xen tears down current->mm early on process termination, so
> that __get_user_pages in exit_mmap causes nasty messages when the
> process had any mlocked pages.  (in fact, it somehow manages to get into
> the swapping code and produces a null pointer dereference trying to get
> a swap token)

Jeremy explained:

Yes.  In the normal case under Xen, an in-use pagetable is "pinned",
meaning that it is RO to the kernel, and all updates must go via hypercall
(or writes are trapped and emulated, which is much the same thing).  An
unpinned pagetable is not currently in use by any process, and can be
directly accessed as normal RW pages.

As an optimisation at process exit time, we unpin the pagetable as early
as possible (switching the process to init_mm), so that all the normal
pagetable teardown can happen with direct memory accesses.

This happens in exit_mmap() -> arch_exit_mmap().  The munlocking happens
a few lines below.  The obvious thing to do would be to move
arch_exit_mmap() to below the munlock code, but I think we'd want to
call it even if mm->mmap is NULL, just to be on the safe side.

Thus, this patch:

exit_mmap() needs to unlock any locked vmas before calling arch_exit_mmap,
as the latter may switch the current mm to init_mm, which would cause the
former to fail.

10 years agosyscall define: fix uml compile bug
Heiko Carstens [Wed, 11 Feb 2009 21:04:38 +0000]
syscall define: fix uml compile bug

With the new system call defines we get this on uml:

arch/um/sys-i386/built-in.o: In function `sys_call_table':
(.rodata+0x308): undefined reference to `sys_sigprocmask'

Reason for this is that uml passes the preprocessor option
-Dsigprocmask=kernel_sigprocmask to gcc when compiling the kernel.
This causes SYSCALL_DEFINE3(sigprocmask, ...) to be expanded to
SYSCALL_DEFINEx(3, kernel_sigprocmask, ...) and finally to a system
call named sys_kernel_sigprocmask.  However sys_sigprocmask is missing
because of this.

To avoid macro expansion for the system call name just concatenate the
name at first define instead of carrying it through severel levels.
This was pointed out by Al Viro.

10 years agoext2/xip: refuse to change xip flag during remount with busy inodes
Carsten Otte [Wed, 11 Feb 2009 21:04:37 +0000]
ext2/xip: refuse to change xip flag during remount with busy inodes

For a reason that I was unable to understand in three months of debugging,
mount ext2 -o remount stopped working properly when remounting from
regular operation to xip, or the other way around.  According to a git
bisect search, the problem was introduced with the VM_MIXEDMAP/PTE_SPECIAL
rework in the vm:

commit 70688e4dd1647f0ceb502bbd5964fa344c5eb411
Author: Nick Piggin <npiggin@suse.de>
Date:   Mon Apr 28 02:13:02 2008 -0700

    xip: support non-struct page backed memory

In the failing scenario, the filesystem is mounted read only via root=
kernel parameter on s390x.  During remount (in rc.sysinit), the inodes of
the bash binary and its libraries are busy and cannot be invalidated (the
bash which is running rc.sysinit resides on subject filesystem).
Afterwards, another bash process (running ifup-eth) recurses into a
subshell, runs dup_mm (via fork).  Some of the mappings in this bash
process were created from inodes that could not be invalidated during
remount.

Both parent and child process crash some time later due to inconsistencies
in their address spaces.  The issue seems to be timing sensitive, various
attempts to recreate it have failed.

This patch refuses to change the xip flag during remount in case some
inodes cannot be invalidated.  This patch keeps users from running into
that issue.

10 years agocgroups: fix lockdep subclasses overflow

cgroups: fix lockdep subclasses overflow

I enabled all cgroup subsystems when compiling kernel, and then:
 # mount -t cgroup -o net_cls xxx /mnt
 # mkdir /mnt/0

This showed up immediately:
 BUG: MAX_LOCKDEP_SUBCLASSES too low!
 turning off the locking correctness validator.

It's caused by the cgroup hierarchy lock:
for (i = 0; i < CGROUP_SUBSYS_COUNT; i++) {
struct cgroup_subsys *ss = subsys[i];
if (ss->root == root)
mutex_lock_nested(&ss->hierarchy_mutex, i);
}

Now we have 9 cgroup subsystems, and the above 'i' for net_cls is 8, but
MAX_LOCKDEP_SUBCLASSES is 8.

This patch uses different lockdep keys for different subsystems.

10 years agomm: fix mlocked page counter mismatch
MinChan Kim [Wed, 11 Feb 2009 21:04:27 +0000]
mm: fix mlocked page counter mismatch

When I tested following program, I found that the mlocked counter
is strange.  It cannot free some mlocked pages.

It is because try_to_unmap_file() doesn't check real
page mappings in vmas.

That is because the goal of an address_space for a file is to find all
processes into which the file's specific interval is mapped.  It is
related to the file's interval, not to pages.

Even if the page isn't really mapped by the vma, it returns SWAP_MLOCK
since the vma has VM_LOCKED, then calls try_to_mlock_page.  After this the
mlocked counter is increased again.

COWed anon page in a file-backed vma could be a such case.  This patch
resolves it.

-- my test program --

int main()
{
       mlockall(MCL_CURRENT);
       return 0;
}

-- before --

root@barrios-target-linux:~# cat /proc/meminfo | egrep 'Mlo|Unev'

ext3: revert "ext3: wait on all pending commits in ext3_sync_fs"

This reverts commit c87591b719737b4e91eb1a9fa8fd55a4ff1886d6.

Since journal_start_commit() is now fixed to return 1 when we started a
transaction commit, there's some transaction waiting to be committed or
there's a transaction already committing, we don't need to call
ext3_force_commit() in ext3_sync_fs().  Furthermore ext3_force_commit()
can unnecessarily create sync transaction which is expensive so it's
worthwhile to remove it when we can.

jbd: fix return value of journal_start_commit()

journal_start_commit() returns 1 if either a transaction is committing or
the function has queued a transaction commit.  But it returns 0 if we
raced with somebody queueing the transaction commit as well.  This
resulted in ext3_sync_fs() not functioning correctly (description from
Arthur Jones): In the case of a data=ordered umount with pending long
symlinks which are delayed due to a long list of other I/O on the backing
block device, this causes the buffer associated with the long symlinks to
not be moved to the inode dirty list in the second phase of fsync_super.
Then, before they can be dirtied again, kjournald exits, seeing the UMOUNT
flag and the dirty pages are never written to the backing block device,
causing long symlink corruption and exposing new or previously freed block
data to userspace.

This can be reproduced with a script created by Eric Sandeen
<sandeen@redhat.com>:

        #!/bin/bash

        umount /mnt/test2
        mount /dev/sdb4 /mnt/test2
        rm -f /mnt/test2/*
        dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt/test2/bigfile bs=1M count=512

10 years agoDo not account for hugetlbfs quota at mmap() time if mapping [SHM|MAP]_NORESERVE
Mel Gorman [Wed, 11 Feb 2009 16:34:16 +0000]
Do not account for hugetlbfs quota at mmap() time if mapping [SHM|MAP]_NORESERVE

Commit 5a6fe125950676015f5108fb71b2a67441755003 brought hugetlbfs more
in line with the core VM by obeying VM_NORESERVE and not reserving
hugepages for both shared and private mappings when [SHM|MAP]_NORESERVE
are specified.  However, it is still taking filesystem quota
unconditionally.

At fault time, if there are no reserves and attempt is made to allocate

10 years agoiwlwifi: fix suspend/resume and its usage of pci saved state
Reinette Chatre [Tue, 10 Feb 2009 20:02:49 +0000]
iwlwifi: fix suspend/resume and its usage of pci saved state

Here we do two things:

First, revert "iwlwifi: save PCI state before suspend, restore after
resume".  That misguided patch led to being unable to use iwlwifi
devices after resume.

Next, indicate to PCI driver that the saved PCI state is valid during suspend.

We restore PCI state and enable the device when network interface is created,
similarly PCI state is saved and the device is disabled when network interface
is removed. Thus, when .suspend is called the PCI state is saved and device
is disabled. This is the case even if an interface is never created as PCI
state is saved and device disabled during .probe.

PCI driver assumes PCI state is saved in .suspend. Saving the state at this
time will save state of disabled device and thus cause problems during
resume (resuming a disabled device). We thus indicate directly to PCI
driver that current PCI saved state is valid.

added by "x86, bts: add fork and exit handling", commit
bf53de907dfdaac178c92d774aae7370d7b97d20.

I can't test this, ds_request_bts() returns -EOPNOTSUPP, but I strongly
believe this needs the fix. I think something like this program

int main(void)
{
int pid = fork();

if (!pid) {
ptrace(PTRACE_TRACEME, 0, NULL, NULL);
kill(getpid(), SIGSTOP);
fork();
} else {
struct ptrace_bts_config bts = {
.flags = PTRACE_BTS_O_ALLOC,
.size  = 4 * 4096,
};

wait(NULL);

ptrace(PTRACE_SETOPTIONS, pid, NULL, PTRACE_O_TRACEFORK);
ptrace(PTRACE_BTS_CONFIG, pid, &bts, sizeof(bts));
ptrace(PTRACE_CONT, pid, NULL, NULL);

sleep(1);
}

return 0;
}

should crash the kernel.

If the task is traced by its natural parent ptrace_reparented() returns 0
but we should clear ->btsxxx anyway.

10 years agosunhme: Fix Quattro HME irq registration on proble failures
Meelis Roos [Wed, 11 Feb 2009 01:29:42 +0000]
sunhme: Fix Quattro HME irq registration on proble failures

Currently, the sunhme driver installs SBus Quattro interrupt handler
when at least one HME card was initialized correctly and at least one
Quattro card is present. This breaks when a Quattro card fails
initialization for whatever reason - IRQ is registered and OOPS happens
when it fires.

The solution, as suggested by David Miller, was to keep track which
cards of the Quattro bundles have been initialized, and request/free the
Quattro IRQ only when all four devices have been successfully
initialized.

The patch only touches SBus initialization - PCI init already resets the
card pointer to NULL on init failure.

The patch has been tested on Sun E3500 with SBus and PCI single HME
cards and one PCI Quattro HME card in a situation where any PCI card
failed init when the SBus routines tried to init them by mistake.

Additionally it replaces Quattro request_irq panic with error return -
if this card fails to work, at least let the others work.

Tested on E450 with PCI HME and PCI Quad HME.

10 years agoDo not account for the address space used by hugetlbfs using VM_ACCOUNT
Mel Gorman [Tue, 10 Feb 2009 14:02:27 +0000]
Do not account for the address space used by hugetlbfs using VM_ACCOUNT

When overcommit is disabled, the core VM accounts for pages used by anonymous
shared, private mappings and special mappings. It keeps track of VMAs that
should be accounted for with VM_ACCOUNT and VMAs that never had a reserve
with VM_NORESERVE.

Overcommit for hugetlbfs is much riskier than overcommit for base pages
due to contiguity requirements. It avoids overcommiting on both shared and
private mappings using reservation counters that are checked and updated
during mmap(). This ensures (within limits) that hugepages exist in the
future when faults occurs or it is too easy to applications to be SIGKILLed.

As hugetlbfs makes its own reservations of a different unit to the base page
size, VM_ACCOUNT should never be set. Even if the units were correct, we would
double account for the usage in the core VM and hugetlbfs. VM_NORESERVE may
be set because an application can request no reserves be made for hugetlbfs
at the risk of getting killed later.

With commit fc8744adc870a8d4366908221508bb113d8b72ee, VM_NORESERVE and
VM_ACCOUNT are getting unconditionally set for hugetlbfs-backed mappings. This
breaks the accounting for both the core VM and hugetlbfs, can trigger an
OOM storm when hugepage pools are too small lockups and corrupted counters
otherwise are used. This patch brings hugetlbfs more in line with how the
core VM treats VM_NORESERVE but prevents VM_ACCOUNT being set.

10 years agotracing, x86: fix fixup section to return to original code
Steven Rostedt [Tue, 10 Feb 2009 18:07:13 +0000]
tracing, x86: fix fixup section to return to original code

Impact: fix to prevent a kernel crash on fault

If for some reason the pointer to the parent function on the
stack takes a fault, the fix up code will not return back to
the original faulting code. This can lead to unpredictable
results and perhaps even a kernel panic.

A fault should not happen, but if it does, we should simply
disable the tracer, warn, and continue running the kernel.
It should not lead to a kernel crash.

powerpc/pci: mmap anonymous memory when legacy_mem doesn't exist

The new legacy_mem file in sysfs is causing problems with X on machines
that don't support legacy memory access. The way I initially implemented
it, we would fail with -ENXIO when trying to mmap it, thus exposing to
X that we do support the API but there is no legacy memory.

Unfortunately, X poor error handling is causing it to fail to start when
it gets this error.

This implements a workaround hack that instead maps anonymous memory
instead (using shmem if VM_SHARED is set, just like /dev/zero does).

x86: fix math_emu register frame access

do_device_not_available() is the handler for #NM and it declares that
it takes a unsigned long and calls math_emu(), which takes a long
argument and surprisingly expects the stack frame starting at the zero
argument would match struct math_emu_info, which isn't true regardless
of configuration in the current code.

This patch makes do_device_not_available() take struct pt_regs like
other exception handlers and initialize struct math_emu_info with
pointer to it and pass pointer to the math_emu_info to math_emulate()
like normal C functions do.  This way, unless gcc makes a copy of
struct pt_regs in do_device_not_available(), the register frame is
correctly accessed regardless of kernel configuration or compiler
used.

This doesn't fix all math_emu problems but it at least gets it
somewhat working.
