7 years agomqueue: don't use kmalloc with KMALLOC_MAX_SIZE

mqueue: don't use kmalloc with KMALLOC_MAX_SIZE

KMALLOC_MAX_SIZE is not a good threshold.  It is extremely high and
problematic.  Unfortunately, some silly drivers depend on this and we
can't change it.  But any new code needn't use such extreme ugly high
order allocations.  It brings us awful fragmentation issues and system
slowdown.

7 years agomqueue: revert bump up DFLT_*MAX
KOSAKI Motohiro [Thu, 31 May 2012 23:26:31 +0000]
mqueue: revert bump up DFLT_*MAX

Mqueue limitation is slightly naieve parameter likes other ipcs because
unprivileged user can consume kernel memory by using ipcs.

Thus, too aggressive raise bring us security issue.  Example, current
setting allow evil unprivileged user use 256GB (= 256 * 1024 * 1024*1024)
and it's enough large to system will belome unresponsive.  Don't do that.

Instead, every admin should adjust the knobs for their own systems.

7 years agoipc/mqueue: update maximums for the mqueue subsystem
Doug Ledford [Thu, 31 May 2012 23:26:30 +0000]
ipc/mqueue: update maximums for the mqueue subsystem

Commit b231cca4381e ("message queues: increase range limits") changed the
maximum size of a message in a message queue from INT_MAX to 8192*128.
Unfortunately, we had customers that relied on a size much larger than
8192*128 on their production systems.  After reviewing POSIX, we found
that it is silent on the maximum message size.  We did find a couple other
areas in which it was not silent.  Fix up the mqueue maximums so that the
customer's system can continue to work, and document both the POSIX and
real world requirements in ipc_namespace.h so that we don't have this
issue crop back up.

Also, commit 9cf18e1dd74cd0 ("ipc: HARD_MSGMAX should be higher not lower
on 64bit") fiddled with HARD_MSGMAX without realizing that the number was
intentionally in place to limit the msg queue depth to one that was small
enough to kmalloc an array of pointers (hence why we divided 128k by
sizeof(long)).  If we wish to meet POSIX requirements, we have no choice
but to change our allocation to a vmalloc instead (at least for the large
queue size case).  With that, it's possible to increase our allowed
maximum to the POSIX requirements (or more if we choose).

7 years agoipc/mqueue: switch back to using non-max values on create
Doug Ledford [Thu, 31 May 2012 23:26:29 +0000]
ipc/mqueue: switch back to using non-max values on create

Commit b231cca4381e ("message queues: increase range limits") changed
how we create a queue that does not include an attr struct passed to
open so that it creates the queue with whatever the maximum values are.
However, if the admin has set the maximums to allow flexibility in
creating a queue (aka, both a large size and large queue are allowed,
but combined they create a queue too large for the RLIMIT_MSGQUEUE of
the user), then attempts to create a queue without an attr struct will
fail.  Switch back to using acceptable defaults regardless of what the
maximums are.

Note: so far, we only know of a few applications that rely on this
behavior (specifically, set the maximums in /proc, then run the
application which calls mq_open() without passing in an attr struct, and
the application expects the newly created message queue to have the
maximum sizes that were set in /proc used on the mq_open() call, and all
of those applications that we know of are actually part of regression
test suites that were coded to do something like this:

for size in 4096 65536 $((1024 * 1024)) $((16 * 1024 * 1024)); do
echo $size > /proc/sys/fs/mqueue/msgsize_max
mq_open || echo "Error opening mq with size $size"
done

These test suites that depend on any behavior like this are broken.  The
concept that programs should rely upon the system wide maximum in order
to get their desired results instead of simply using a attr struct to
specify what they want is fundamentally unfriendly programming practice
for any multi-tasking OS.

Fixing this will break those few apps that we know of (and those app
authors recognize the brokenness of their code and the need to fix it).
However, the following patch "mqueue: separate mqueue default value"
allows a workaround in the form of new knobs for the default msg queue
creation parameters for any software out there that we don't already
know about that might rely on this behavior at the moment.

7 years agoipc/mqueue: cleanup definition names and locations
Doug Ledford [Thu, 31 May 2012 23:26:28 +0000]
ipc/mqueue: cleanup definition names and locations

Since commit b231cca4381e ("message queues: increase range limits") on
Oct 18, 2008, calls to mq_open() that did not pass in an attribute
struct and expected to get default values for the size of the queue and
the max message size now get the system wide maximums instead of
hardwired defaults like they used to get.

This was uncovered when one of the earlier patches in this patch set
increased the default system wide maximums at the same time it increased
the hard ceiling on the system wide maximums (a customer specifically
needed the hard ceiling brought back up, the new ceiling that commit
b231cca4381e introduced was too low for their production systems).  By
increasing the default maximums and not realising they were tied to any
attempt to create a message queue without an attribute struct, I had
inadvertently made it such that all message queue creation attempts
without an attribute struct were failing because the new default
maximums would create a queue that exceeded the default rlimit for
message queue bytes.

As a result, the system wide defaults were brought back down to their
previous levels, and the system wide ceilings on the maximums were
raised to meet the customer's needs.  However, the fact that the no
attribute struct behavior of mq_open() could be broken by changing the
system wide maximums for message queues was seen as fundamentally broken
itself.  So we hardwired the no attribute case back like it used to be.
But, then we realized that on the very off chance that some piece of
software in the wild depended on that behavior, we could work around
that issue by adding two new knobs to /proc that allowed setting the
defaults for message queues created without an attr struct separately
from the system wide maximums.

What is not an option IMO is to leave the current behavior in place.  No
piece of software should ever rely on setting the system wide maximums
in order to get a desired message queue.  Such a reliance would be so
fundamentally multitasking OS unfriendly as to not really be tolerable.
Fortunately, we don't know of any software in the wild that uses this
except for a regression test program that caught the issue in the first
place.  If there is though, we have made accommodations with the two new
/proc knobs (and that's all the accommodations such fundamentally broken
software can be allowed)..

This patch:

The various defines for minimums and maximums of the sysctl controllable
mqueue values are scattered amongst different files and named
inconsistently.  Move them all into ipc_namespace.h and make them have
consistent names.  Additionally, make the number of queues per namespace
also have a minimum and maximum and use the same sysctl function as the
other two settable variables.

2. Checking for process->mm is not enough because process' main
   thread may exit or detach its mm via use_mm(), but other threads
   may still have a valid mm.

This patch implements a small helper function that does things
correctly, i.e.:

1. We take the task's lock while whe handle its mm (we can't use
   get_task_mm()/mmput() pair as mmput() might sleep);

2. To catch exited main thread case, we use find_lock_task_mm(),
   which walks up all threads and returns an appropriate task
   (with task lock held).

Also, Per Peter Zijlstra's idea, now we don't grab tasklist_lock in
the new helper, instead we take the rcu read lock. We can do this
because the function is called after the cpu is taken down and marked
offline, so no new tasks will get this cpu set in their mm mask.

7 years agoproc: report file/anon bit in /proc/pid/pagemap
Konstantin Khlebnikov [Thu, 31 May 2012 23:26:19 +0000]
proc: report file/anon bit in /proc/pid/pagemap

This is an implementation of Andrew's proposal to extend the pagemap file
bits to report what is missing about tasks' working set.

The problem with the working set detection is multilateral.  In the criu
(checkpoint/restore) project we dump the tasks' memory into image files
and to do it properly we need to detect which pages inside mappings are
really in use.  The mincore syscall I though could help with this did not.
 First, it doesn't report swapped pages, thus we cannot find out which
parts of anonymous mappings to dump.  Next, it does report pages from page
cache as present even if they are not mapped, and it doesn't make that has
not been cow-ed.

Note, that issue with swap pages is critical -- we must dump swap pages to
image file.  But the issues with file pages are optimization -- we can
take all file pages to image, this would be correct, but if we know that a
page is not mapped or not cow-ed, we can remove them from dump file.  The
dump would still be self-consistent, though significantly smaller in size
(up to 10 times smaller on real apps).

Andrew noticed, that the proc pagemap file solved 2 of 3 above issues --
it reports whether a page is present or swapped and it doesn't report not
mapped page cache pages.  But, it doesn't distinguish cow-ed file pages
from not cow-ed.

I would like to make the last unused bit in this file to report whether the
page mapped into respective pte is PageAnon or not.

7 years agocred: remove task_is_dead() from __task_cred() validation
Oleg Nesterov [Thu, 31 May 2012 23:26:16 +0000]
cred: remove task_is_dead() from __task_cred() validation

Commit 8f92054e7ca1 ("CRED: Fix __task_cred()'s lockdep check and banner
comment"):

    add the following validation condition:

        task->exit_state >= 0

    to permit the access if the target task is dead and therefore
    unable to change its own credentials.

OK, but afaics currently this can only help wait_task_zombie() which calls
__task_cred() without rcu lock.

Remove this validation and change wait_task_zombie() to use task_uid()
instead.  This means we do rcu_read_lock() only to shut up the lockdep,
but we already do the same in, say, wait_task_stopped().

task_is_dead() should die, task->exit_state != 0 means that this task has
passed exit_notify(), only do_wait-like code paths should use this.

Unfortunately, we can't kill task_is_dead() right now, it has already
acquired buggy users in drivers/staging.  The fix already exists.

_fns but gain 3 calls to the helpers.  (Not that it matters)

7 years agofat: switch to fsinfo_inode
Artem Bityutskiy [Thu, 31 May 2012 23:26:13 +0000]
fat: switch to fsinfo_inode

Currently FAT file-system maps the VFS "superblock" abstraction to the
FSINFO block.  The FSINFO block contains non-essential data about the
amount of free clusters and the next free cluster.  FAT file-system can
always find out this information by scanning the FAT table, but having it
in the FSINFO block may speed things up sometimes.  So FAT file-system
relies on the VFS superblock write-out services to make sure the FSINFO
block is written out to the media from time to time.

The whole "superblock write-out" VFS infrastructure is served by the
'sync_supers()' kernel thread, which wakes up every 5 (by default) seconds
and writes out all dirty superblock using the '->write_super()' call-back.
 But the problem with this thread is that it wastes power by waking up the
system every 5 seconds no matter what.  So we want to kill it completely
and thus, we need to make file-systems to stop using the '->write_super'
VFS service, and then remove it together with the kernel thread.

This patch switches the FAT FSINFO block management from
'->write_super()'/'->s_dirt' to 'fsinfo_inode'/'->write_inode'.  Now,
instead of setting the 's_dirt' flag, we just mark the special
'fsinfo_inode' inode as dirty and let VFS invoke the '->write_inode'
call-back when needed, where we write-out the FSINFO block.

This patch also makes sure we do not mark the 'fsinfo_inode' inode as
dirty if we are not FAT32 (FAT16 and FAT12 do not have the FSINFO block)
or if we are in R/O mode.

As a bonus, we can also remove the '->sync_fs()' and '->write_super()' FAT
call-back function because they become unneeded.

prevents them from marking the superblock as dirty unnecessarily often.
Namely, instead of marking it as dirty in the internal tight loops - do it
only once at the end of the functions.  And instead of marking it as dirty
while holding the FAT table lock, do it outside the lock.

The reason for this patch is that marking the superblock as dirty will
soon become a little bit heavier operation, so it is cleaner to do this
only when it is necessary.

7 years agofat: introduce special inode for managing the FSINFO block
Artem Bityutskiy [Thu, 31 May 2012 23:26:12 +0000]
fat: introduce special inode for managing the FSINFO block

This is patchset makes fatfs stop using the VFS '->write_super()' method
for writing out the FSINFO block.

The final goal is to get rid of the 'sync_supers()' kernel thread.  This
kernel thread wakes up every 5 seconds (by default) and calls
'->write_super()' for all mounted file-systems.  And the bad thing is that
this is done even if all the superblocks are clean.  Moreover, some
file-systems do not even need this end they do not register the
'->write_super()' method at all (e.g., btrfs).

So 'sync_supers()' most often just generates useless wake-ups and wastes
power.  I am trying to make all file-systems independent of
'->write_super()' and plan to remove 'sync_supers()' and '->write_super'
completely once there are no more users.

The '->write_supers()' method is mostly used by baroque file-systems like
hfs, udf, etc.  Modern file-systems like btrfs and xfs do not use it.
This justifies removing this stuff from VFS completely and make every FS
self-manage own superblock.

Tested with xfstests.

This patch:

Preparation for further changes.  It introduces a special inode
('fsinfo_inode') in FAT file-system which we'll later use for managing the
FSINFO block.  Note, this there is already one special inode ('fat_inode')
which is used for managing the FAT tables.

Introduce new 'MSDOS_FSINFO_INO' constant for this special inode.  It is
safe to do because FAT file-system does not store inode numbers on the
media but generates them run-time.

I've also cleaned up the comment to existing 'MSDOS_ROOT_INO' constant,
while on it.

init: disable sparse checking of the mount.o source files

The init/mount.o source files produce a number of sparse warnings of the
type:

warning: incorrect type in argument 1 (different address spaces)
   expected char [noderef] <asn:1>*dev_name
   got char *name

This is due to the syscalls expecting some of the arguments to be user
pointers but they are being passed as kernel pointers.  This is harmless
but adds a lot of noise to a sparse build.

To limit the noise just disable the sparse checking in the relevant source
files, but still display a warning so that the user knows this has been
done.

Since the sparse checking has been disabled we can also remove the __user
__force casts that are scattered thru the source.

7 years agovsprintf: further optimize decimal conversion
Denys Vlasenko [Thu, 31 May 2012 23:26:08 +0000]
vsprintf: further optimize decimal conversion

Previous code was using optimizations which were developed to work well
even on narrow-word CPUs (by today's standards).  But Linux runs only on
32-bit and wider CPUs.  We can use that.

First: using 32x32->64 multiply and trivial 32-bit shift, we can correctly
divide by 10 much larger numbers, and thus we can print groups of 9 digits
instead of groups of 5 digits.

Next: there are two algorithms to print larger numbers.  One is generic:
divide by 1000000000 and repeatedly print groups of (up to) 9 digits.
It's conceptually simple, but requires an (unsigned long long) /
1000000000 division.

Second algorithm splits 64-bit unsigned long long into 16-bit chunks,
manipulates them cleverly and generates groups of 4 decimal digits.  It so
happens that it does NOT require long long division.

If long is > 32 bits, division of 64-bit values is relatively easy, and we
will use the first algorithm.  If long long is > 64 bits (strange
architecture with VERY large long long), second algorithm can't be used,
and we again use the first one.

Else (if long is 32 bits and long long is 64 bits) we use second one.

And third: there is a simple optimization which takes fast path not only
for zero as was done before, but for all one-digit numbers.

In all tested cases new code is faster than old one, in many cases by 30%,
in few cases by more than 50% (for example, on x86-32, conversion of
12345678).  Code growth is ~0 in 32-bit case and ~130 bytes in 64-bit
case.

This patch is based upon an original from Michal Nazarewicz.

7 years agovsprintf: correctly handle width when '#' flag used in %#p format
Grant Likely [Thu, 31 May 2012 23:26:08 +0000]
vsprintf: correctly handle width when '#' flag used in %#p format

The '%p' output of the kernel's vsprintf() uses spec.field_width to
determine how many digits to output based on 2 * sizeof(void*) so that all
digits of a pointer are shown.  ie.  a pointer will be output as
"001A2B3C" instead of "1A2B3C".  However, if the '#' flag is used in the
format (%#p), then the code doesn't take into account the width of the
'0x' prefix and will end up outputing "0x1A2B3C" instead of "0x001A2B3C".

This patch reworks the "pointer()" format hook to include 2 characters for
the '0x' prefix if the '#' flag is included.

doesn't make the time valid.

Without this patch, only the first get_time() reported an invalid time,
the second get_time() reported a valid time althought the reported time is
probably wrong due to oscillator failure.

Instead of resetting in get_time(), with this patch M41T93_FLAG_OF is
reset in set_time() when a valid time is to be written.

vsprintf: fix %ps on non symbols when using kallsyms

Using %ps in a printk format will sometimes fail silently and print the
empty string if the address passed in does not match a symbol that
kallsyms knows about.  But using %pS will fall back to printing the full
address if kallsyms can't find the symbol.  Make %ps act the same as %pS
by falling back to printing the address.

While we're here also make %ps print the module that a symbol comes from
so that it matches what %pS already does.  Take this simple function for
example (in a module):

static void test_printk(void)
{
int test;
pr_info("with pS: %pS\n", &test);
pr_info("with ps: %ps\n", &test);
}

7 years agoleds: add new transient trigger for one shot timer activation
Shuah Khan [Tue, 29 May 2012 22:07:30 +0000]
leds: add new transient trigger for one shot timer activation

The leds timer trigger does not currently have an interface to activate a
one shot timer.  The current support allows for setting two timers, one
for specifying how long a state to be on, and the second for how long the
state to be off.  The delay_on value specifies the time period an LED
should stay in on state, followed by a delay_off value that specifies how
long the LED should stay in off state.  The on and off cycle repeats until
the trigger gets deactivated.  There is no provision for one time
activation to implement features that require an on or off state to be
held just once and then stay in the original state forever.

Without one shot timer interface, user space can still use timer trigger
to set a timer to hold a state, however when user space application
crashes or goes away without deactivating the timer, the hardware will be
left in that state permanently.

As a specific example of this use-case, let's look at vibrate feature on
phones.  Vibrate function on phones is implemented using PWM pins on SoC
or PMIC.  There is a need to activate one shot timer to control the
vibrate feature, to prevent user space crashes leaving the phone in
vibrate mode permanently causing the battery to drain.

This trigger exports three properties, activate, state, and duration When
transient trigger is activated these properties are set to default values.

- duration allows setting timer value in msecs. The initial value is 0.
- activate allows activating and deactivating the timer specified by
  duration as needed. The initial and default value is 0.  This will allow
  duration to be set after trigger activation.
- state allows user to specify a transient state to be held for the specified
  duration.

Thomas Meyer [Tue, 29 May 2012 22:07:27 +0000]
leds: Use kcalloc instead of kzalloc to allocate array

The advantage of kcalloc is that will prevent integer overflows which
could result from the multiplication of number of elements and size and it
is also a bit nicer to read.

The semantic patch that makes this change is available
in https://lkml.org/lkml/2011/11/25/107

7 years agoleds: simple_strtoul() cleanup
Shuah Khan [Tue, 29 May 2012 22:07:26 +0000]
leds: simple_strtoul() cleanup

led-class.c and ledtrig-timer.c still use simple_strtoul().  Change them
to use kstrtoul() instead of obsolete simple_strtoul().

Also fix the existing int ret declaration to be ssize_t to match the
return type for _store functions in ledtrig-timer.c.

7 years agodrivers/leds/leds-lp5521.c: fix lp5521_read() error handling
Dan Carpenter [Tue, 29 May 2012 22:07:26 +0000]
drivers/leds/leds-lp5521.c: fix lp5521_read() error handling

Gcc 4.6.2 complains that:

  drivers/leds/leds-lp5521.c: In function `lp5521_load_program':
  drivers/leds/leds-lp5521.c:214:21: warning: `mode' may be used uninitialized in this function [-Wuninitialized]
  drivers/leds/leds-lp5521.c: In function `lp5521_probe':
  drivers/leds/leds-lp5521.c:788:5: warning: `buf' may be used uninitialized in this function [-Wuninitialized]
  drivers/leds/leds-lp5521.c:740:6: warning: `ret' may be used uninitialized in this function [-Wuninitialized]

These are real problems if lp5521_read() returns an error.  When that
happens we should handle it, instead of ignoring it or doing a bitwise
OR with all the other error codes and continuing.
