[PATCH] futex: remove unneeded barrier

When disassembling a kernel I found around over 90 sync Instructions from
mb, rmb and wmb calls in the kernel and only few of those make any sense to
me.  So here's the first one - I think the wmb() in kernel/futex.c is not
needed on uniprocessors so should become an smb_wmb().

generic HDLC support for synclink drivers is *optional* so you can't just

[PATCH] remove NFSD_OPTIMIZE_SPACE

This patch removes the unused NFSD_OPTIMIZE_SPACE.

Additionally, it does differently what NFSD_OPTIMIZE_SPACE was supposed to do:

Nowadays, gcc knows best when to inline code, and CONFIG_CC_OPTIMIZE_FOR_SIZE
even tells gcc globally whether to optimize for size or for speed.  Therefore,
this patch also removes all inline's from these files.

  # rm foo
  # <take snapshot>
  # <mount snapshot>

you'll panic, because ext3/4 tries to do orphan list processing on the
readonly snapshot device, and:

  kernel: journal commit I/O error
  kernel: Assertion failure in journal_flush_Rsmp_e2f189ce() at journal.c:1356: "!journal->j_checkpoint_transactions"
  kernel: Kernel panic: Fatal exception

to just skip orphan list processing.

[PATCH] gcc-4.1.0 is bust

Keith says

Compiling 2.6.19-rc6 with gcc version 4.1.0 (SUSE Linux), wait_hpet_tick is
optimized away to a never ending loop and the kernel hangs on boot in timer
setup.

0000001a <wait_hpet_tick>:
  1a:   55                      push   %ebp
  1b:   89 e5                   mov    %esp,%ebp
  1d:   eb fe                   jmp    1d <wait_hpet_tick+0x3>

This is not a problem with gcc 3.3.5.  Adding barrier() calls to
wait_hpet_tick does not help, making the variables volatile does.

And the consensus is that gcc-4.1.0 is busted.  Suse went and shipped
gcc-4.1.0 so we cannot ban it.  Add a warning.

[PATCH] rtc: ds1743 support

The real time clocks ds1742 and ds1743 differs only in the size of the
nvram.  This patch changes the existing ds1742 driver to support also
ds1743.  The main change is that the nvram size is determined from the
resource attached to the device.

The patch have benefitted from suggestions from Atsushi Nemeto, who is the
author of the ds1742 driver.

Zachary Amsden [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:39:39 +0000]
[PATCH] softirq: remove BUG_ONs which can incorrectly trigger

It is possible to have tasklets get scheduled before softirqd has had a chance
to spawn on all CPUs.  This is totally harmless; after success during action
CPU_UP_PREPARE, action CPU_ONLINE will be called, which immediately wakes
softirqd on the appropriate CPU to process the already pending tasklets.  So
there is no danger of having a missed wakeup for any tasklets that were
already pending.

In particular, i386 is affected by this during startup, and is visible when
using a very large initrd; during the time it takes for the initrd to be
decompressed, a timer IRQ can come in and schedule RCU callbacks.  It is also
possible that resending of a hardware IRQ via a softirq triggers the same bug.

Because of different timing conditions, this shows up in all emulators and
virtual machines tested, including Xen, VMware, Virtual PC, and Qemu.  It is
also possible to trigger on native hardware with a large enough initrd,
although I don't have a reliable case demonstrating that.

13 years ago[PATCH] autofs: fix error code path in autofs_fill_sb()
Jiri Kosina [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:39:38 +0000]
[PATCH] autofs: fix error code path in autofs_fill_sb()

When kernel is compiled with old version of autofs (CONFIG_AUTOFS_FS), and
new (observed at least with 5.x.x) automount deamon is started, kernel
correctly reports incompatible version of kernel and userland daemon, but
then screws things up instead of correct handling of the error:

 autofs: kernel does not match daemon version
 =====================================
 [ BUG: bad unlock balance detected! ]
 -------------------------------------
 automount/4199 is trying to release lock (&type->s_umount_key) at:

 but there are no more locks to release!

 no locks held by automount/4199.

  =======================

and then deadlock comes.

The problem: autofs_fill_super() returns EINVAL to get_sb_nodev(), but
before that, it calls kill_anon_super() to destroy the superblock which
won't be needed.  This is however way too soon to call kill_anon_super(),
because get_sb_nodev() has to perform its own cleanup of the superblock
first (deactivate_super(), etc.).  The correct time to call
kill_anon_super() is in the autofs_kill_sb() callback, which is called by
deactivate_super() at proper time, when the superblock is ready to be
killed.

I can see the same faulty codepath also in autofs4.  This patch solves
issues in both filesystems in a same way - it postpones the
kill_anon_super() until the proper time is signalized by deactivate_super()
calling the kill_sb() callback.

[PATCH] jbd2: wait for already submitted t_sync_datalist buffer to complete

In the current jbd code, if a buffer on BJ_SyncData list is dirty and not
locked, the buffer is refiled to BJ_Locked list, submitted to the IO and
waited for IO completion.

But the fsstress test showed the case that when a buffer was already
submitted to the IO just before the buffer_dirty(bh) check, the buffer was
not waited for IO completion.

Following patch solves this problem.  If it is assumed that a buffer is
submitted to the IO before the buffer_dirty(bh) check and still being
written to disk, this buffer is refiled to BJ_Locked list.

[PATCH] rtc-rs5c372: change register reading method

According to the datasheet rs5c372 supports three different methods for
reading register values.  Change from method #1 to method #3, since method #3
is the only one that works on Thecus N2100 board with this RTC.

Vladimir V. Saveliev [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:39:12 +0000]
[PATCH] reiserfs: do not add save links for O_DIRECT writes

We add a save link for O_DIRECT writes to protect the i_size against the
crashes before we actually finish the I/O.  If we hit an -ENOSPC in
aops->prepare_write(), we would do a truncate() to release the blocks which
might have got initialized.  Now the truncate would add another save link
for the same inode causing a reiserfs panic for having multiple save links
for the same inode.

13 years ago[PATCH] sysctl: string length calculated is wrong if it contains negative numbers
BP, Praveen [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:39:09 +0000]
[PATCH] sysctl: string length calculated is wrong if it contains negative numbers

In the functions do_proc_dointvec() and do_proc_doulongvec_minmax(),
there seems to be a bug in string length calculation if string contains
negative integer.

The console log given below explains the bug. Setting negative values
may not be a right thing to do for "console log level" but then the test
(given below) can be used to demonstrate the bug in the code.

# echo "-1 -1 -1 -123456" > /proc/sys/kernel/printk
# cat /proc/sys/kernel/printk
-1      -1      -1      -1234
#
# echo "-1 -1 -1 123456" > /proc/sys/kernel/printk
# cat /proc/sys/kernel/printk
-1      -1      -1      1234
#

(akpm: the bug is that 123456 gets truncated)

It works as expected if string contains all +ve integers

# echo "1 2 3 4" > /proc/sys/kernel/printk
# cat /proc/sys/kernel/printk
1       2       3       4
#

The patch given below fixes the issue.

4. Set the I/O type of ports correctly.
5. Perform polled transmission correctly.
6. Don't fix the console line at ttyS3.
7. Magic SysRq support.

Eric Dumazet [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:38:53 +0000]
[PATCH] fs: reorder some 'struct inode' fields to speedup i_size manipulations

On 32bits SMP platforms, 64bits i_size is protected by a seqcount
(i_size_seqcount).

When i_size is read or written, i_size_seqcount is read/written as well, so
it make sense to group these two fields together in the same cache line.

This patch moves i_size_seqcount next to i_size, and also moves i_version
to let offsetof(struct inode, i_size) being 0x40 instead of 0x3c (for
32bits platforms).

For 64 bits platforms, i_size_seqcount doesnt exist, and the move of a
'long i_version' should not introduce a new hole because of padding.

[PATCH] hotplug CPU: clean up hotcpu_notifier() use

There was lots of #ifdef noise in the kernel due to hotcpu_notifier(fn,
prio) not correctly marking 'fn' as used in the !HOTPLUG_CPU case, and thus
generating compiler warnings of unused symbols, hence forcing people to add
#ifdefs.

the compiler can skip truly unused functions just fine:

13 years ago[PATCH] kprobes: enable booster on the preemptible kernel
Masami Hiramatsu [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:38:11 +0000]
[PATCH] kprobes: enable booster on the preemptible kernel

When we are unregistering a kprobe-booster, we can't release its
instruction buffer immediately on the preemptive kernel, because some
processes might be preempted on the buffer.  The freeze_processes() and
thaw_processes() functions can clean most of processes up from the buffer.
There are still some non-frozen threads who have the PF_NOFREEZE flag.  If
those threads are sleeping (not preempted) at the known place outside the
buffer, we can ensure safety of freeing.

However, the processing of this check routine takes a long time.  So, this
patch introduces the garbage collection mechanism of insn_slot.  It also
introduces the "dirty" flag to free_insn_slot because of efficiency.

The "clean" instruction slots (dirty flag is cleared) are released
immediately.  But the "dirty" slots which are used by boosted kprobes, are
marked as garbages.  collect_garbage_slots() will be invoked to release
"dirty" slots if there are more than INSNS_PER_PAGE garbage slots or if
there are no unused slots.
