[PATCH] remove pps support

This removes the support for pps.  It's completely unused within the kernel
and is basically in the way for further cleanups.  It should be easier to
readd proper support for it after the rest has been converted to NTP4
(where the pps mechanisms are quite different from NTP3 anyway).

14 years ago[PATCH] direct-io: bug fix in dio handling write error
Chen, Kenneth W [Sat, 25 Mar 2006 11:08:16 +0000]
[PATCH] direct-io: bug fix in dio handling write error

There is a bug in direct-io on propagating write error up to the higher I/O
layer.  When performing an async ODIRECT write to a block device, if a
device error occurred (like media error or disk is pulled), the error code
is only propagated from device driver to the DIO layer.  The error code
stops at finished_one_bio().  The aysnc write, however, is supposedly have
a corresponding AIO event with appropriate return code (in this case -EIO).
 Application which waits on the async write event, will hang forever since
such AIO event is lost forever (if such app did not use the timeout option
in io_getevents call.  Regardless, an AIO event is lost).

The discovery of above bug leads to another discovery of potential race
window with dio->result.  The fundamental problem is that dio->result is
overloaded with dual use: an indicator of fall back path for partial dio
write, and an error indicator used in the I/O completion path.  In the
event of device error, the setting of -EIO to dio->result clashes with
value used to track partial write that activates the fall back path.

It was also pointed out that it is impossible to use dio->result to track
partial write and at the same time to track error returned from device
driver.  Because direct_io_work can only determines whether it is a partial
write at the end of io submission and in mid stream of those io submission,
a return code could be coming back from the driver.  Thus messing up all
the subsequent logic.

Proposed fix is to separating out error code returned by the IO completion
path from partial IO submit tracking.  A new variable is added to dio
structure specifically to track io error returned in the completion path.

[PATCH] udf: fix uid/gid options and add uid/gid=ignore and forget options

As Pekka Enberg pointed out, with the if still following the else, you can
still get a null uid written to the disk if you specify a default uid= without
uid=forget.  In other words, if the desktop user is uid=1000 and the mount
option uid=1000 is given ( which is done on ubuntu automatically and probably
other distributions that use hal ), then if any other user besides uid 1000
owns a file then a 0 will be written to the media as the owning uid instead.

Eric Dumazet [Sat, 25 Mar 2006 11:08:00 +0000]
[PATCH] No need to protect current->group_info in sys_getgroups(), in_group_p() and in_egroup_p()

While doing some benchmarks of an Apache/PHP SMP server, I noticed high
oprofile numbers in in_group_p() and _atomic_dec_and_lock().

rank  percent
  1     4.8911 % __link_path_walk
  2     4.8503 % __d_lookup
*3     4.2911 % _atomic_dec_and_lock
  4     3.9307 % __copy_to_user_ll
  5     4.9004 % sysenter_past_esp
*6     3.3248 % in_group_p

It appears that in_group_p() does an uncessary

get_group_info(current->group_info); /* atomic_inc() */
  ... /* access current->group_info */
put_group_info(current->group_info); /* _atomic_dec_and_lock */

It is not necessary to do this, because the current task holds a reference
on its own group_info, and this reference cannot change during the lookup.

This patch deletes the get_group_info()/put_group_info() pair from
sys_getgroups(), in_group_p() and in_egroup_p() functions.

[PATCH] Ext2 flags shouldn't report "nogrpid"

If I mount ext2 "rw", I want it to say "rw", not "rw,nogrpid".

I caught this writing an automated regression test script for the busybox
mount command.  The symptom is
  /dev/loop0 on /images/ext2.dir type ext2 (rw,nogrpid)
instead of:
  /dev/loop0 on /images/ext2.dir type ext2 (rw)

The behavior was introduced by git commit
8fc2751beb0941966d3a97b26544e8585e428c08.

[PATCH] find_task_by_pid() needs tasklist_lock

A couple of places are forgetting to take it.

The kswapd case is probably unimportant.  keventd_create_kthread() was racy.

The whole thing is a bit flakey: you start a kernel thread, get its pid from
kernel_thread() then look up its task_struct.

a) It assumes that pid recycling takes a "long" time.

b) We get a task_struct but no reference was taken on it.  The owner of the
   kswapd and kthread task_struct*'s must assume that the new thread won't
   exit unexpectedly.  Because if it does, they're left holding dead memory
   and any attempt to control or stop that task will crash.

Davide Libenzi [Sat, 25 Mar 2006 11:07:39 +0000]
[PATCH] POLLRDHUP/EPOLLRDHUP handling for half-closed devices notifications

Implement the half-closed devices notifiation, by adding a new POLLRDHUP
(and its alias EPOLLRDHUP) bit to the existing poll/select sets.  Since the
existing POLLHUP handling, that does not report correctly half-closed
devices, was feared to be changed, this implementation leaves the current
POLLHUP reporting unchanged and simply add a new bit that is set in the few
places where it makes sense.  The same thing was discussed and conceptually
agreed quite some time ago:

http://lkml.org/lkml/2003/7/12/116

Since this new event bit is added to the existing Linux poll infrastruture,
even the existing poll/select system calls will be able to use it.  As far
as the existing POLLHUP handling, the patch leaves it as is.  The
pollrdhup-2.6.16.rc5-0.10.diff defines the POLLRDHUP for all the existing
archs and sets the bit in the six relevant files.  The other attached diff
is the simple change required to sys/epoll.h to add the EPOLLRDHUP
definition.

There is "a stupid program" to test POLLRDHUP delivery here:

 http://www.xmailserver.org/pollrdhup-test.c

It tests poll(2), but since the delivery is same epoll(2) will work equally.

14 years ago[PATCH] IRQ: prevent enabling of previously disabled interrupt
Bryan Holty [Sat, 25 Mar 2006 11:07:37 +0000]
[PATCH] IRQ: prevent enabling of previously disabled interrupt

This fix prevents re-disabling and enabling of a previously disabled
interrupt.  On an SMP system with irq balancing enabled; If an interrupt is
disabled from within its own interrupt context with disable_irq_nosync and is
also earmarked for processor migration, the interrupt is blindly moved to the
other processor and enabled without regard for its current "enabled" state.
If there is an interrupt pending, it will unexpectedly invoke the irq handler
on the new irq owning processor (even though the irq was previously disabled)

The more intuitive fix would be to invoke disable_irq_nosync and
enable_irq, but since we already have the desc->lock from __do_IRQ, we
cannot call them directly.  Instead we can use the same logic to disable
and enable found in disable_irq_nosync and enable_irq, with regards to the
desc->depth.

This now prevents a disabled interrupt from being re-disabled, and more
importantly prevents a disabled interrupt from being incorrectly enabled on
a different processor.

[PATCH] 9p: fix name consistency problems

There were a number of conflicting naming schemes used in the v9fs project.
The directory was fs/9p, but MAINTAINERS and Documentation referred to
v9fs.  The module name itself was 9p2000, and the file system type was 9P.
This patch attempts to clean that up, changing all references to 9p in
order to match the directory name.  We'll also start using 9p instead of
v9fs as our patch prefix.

There is also a minor consistency cleanup in the options changing the name
option to uname in order to more closely match the Plan 9 options.

[PATCH] amiga: fix driver_register() return handling, remove zorro_module_init()

Remove the assumption that driver_register() returns the number of devices
bound to the driver.  In fact, it returns zero for success or a negative
error value.

zorro_module_init() used the device count to automatically unregister and
unload drivers that found no devices.  That might have worked at one time,
but has been broken for some time because zorro_register_driver() returned
either a negative error or a positive count (never zero).  So it could only
unregister on failure, when it's not needed anyway.

This functionality could be resurrected in individual drivers by counting
devices in their .probe() methods.

It turns out the -ENODEV happens quite a lot, due to built-in drivers which
have no hardware to drive.  So suppress that unless initcall_debug was
specified.

Also make the warning message more friendly by printing the name of the
initcall function.

Also drop the KERN_DEBUG from the initcall_debug message.  If we specified
inticall_debug then we obviously want to see the messages.

Nick Piggin [Sat, 25 Mar 2006 11:07:09 +0000]
[PATCH] inotify: lock avoidance with parent watch status in dentry

Previous inotify work avoidance is good when inotify is completely unused,
but it breaks down if even a single watch is in place anywhere in the
system.  Robin Holt notices that udev is one such culprit - it slows down a
512-thread application on a 512 CPU system from 6 seconds to 22 minutes.

Solve this by adding a flag in the dentry that tells inotify whether or not
its parent inode has a watch on it.  Event queueing to parent will skip
taking locks if this flag is cleared.  Setting and clearing of this flag on
all child dentries versus event delivery: this is no in terms of race
cases, and that was shown to be equivalent to always performing the check.

The essential behaviour is that activity occuring _after_ a watch has been
added and _before_ it has been removed, will generate events.

[PATCH] reiserfs: handle trans_id overflow

Reiserfs does not handle transaction ID overflow correctly.  Transaction ID
== 0 causes reiserfs to crash.  The patch fixes all places where the
transaction ID is incremented.

[PATCH] reiserfs: fix transaction overflowing

This patch fixes a bug in reiserfs truncate.  A transaction might overflow
when truncating long highly fragmented file.  The fix is to split
truncation into several transactions to avoid overflowing.
