12 years agomm: Add range_cont mode for writeback
Aneesh Kumar K.V [Fri, 11 Jul 2008 23:27:31 +0000]
mm: Add range_cont mode for writeback

Filesystems like ext4 needs to start a new transaction in
the writepages for block allocation. This happens with delayed
allocation and there is limit to how many credits we can request
from the journal layer. So we call write_cache_pages multiple
times with wbc->nr_to_write set to the maximum possible value
limitted by the max journal credits available.

Add a new mode to writeback that enables us to handle this
behaviour. In the new mode we update the wbc->range_start
to point to the new offset to be written. Next call to
call to write_cache_pages will start writeout from specified
range_start offset. In the new mode we also limit writing
to the specified wbc->range_end.

ext4: delayed allocation ENOSPC handling

This patch does block reservation for delayed
allocation, to avoid ENOSPC later at page flush time.

Blocks(data and metadata) are reserved at da_write_begin()
time, the freeblocks counter is updated by then, and the number of
reserved blocks is store in per inode counter.

At the writepage time, the unused reserved meta blocks are returned
back. At unlink/truncate time, reserved blocks are properly released.

Updated fix from  Aneesh Kumar K.V <aneesh.kumar@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

toghether through mke2fs.  Since the impact on the block allocator is
minimal, this patch should have little or no effect on other block
allocation algorithms. By controlling the inode allocation, it can
basically control where the initial search for new block begins and
thus indirectly manipulate the block allocator.

This allocator favors data and meta-data locality so the disk will
gradually be filled from block group zero upward.  This helps improve
performance by reducing seek time.  Since the group of inode tables
within one flex_bg are treated as one giant inode table, uninitialized
block groups would not need to partially initialize as many inode
table as with Orlov which would help fsck time as the filesystem usage
goes up.

12 years agocpusets, hotplug, scheduler: fix scheduler domain breakage
Dmitry Adamushko [Sun, 13 Jul 2008 00:10:29 +0000]
cpusets, hotplug, scheduler: fix scheduler domain breakage

Commit f18f982ab ("sched: CPU hotplug events must not destroy scheduler
domains created by the cpusets") introduced a hotplug-related problem as
described below:

Upon CPU_DOWN_PREPARE,

  update_sched_domains() -> detach_destroy_domains(&cpu_online_map)

does the following:

/*
 * Force a reinitialization of the sched domains hierarchy. The domains
 * and groups cannot be updated in place without racing with the balancing
 * code, so we temporarily attach all running cpus to the NULL domain
 * which will prevent rebalancing while the sched domains are recalculated.
 */

The sched-domains should be rebuilt when a CPU_DOWN ops. has been
completed, effectively either upon CPU_DEAD{_FROZEN} (upon success) or
CPU_DOWN_FAILED{_FROZEN} (upon failure -- restore the things to their
initial state). That's what update_sched_domains() also does but only
for !CPUSETS case.

With f18f982ab, sched-domains' reinitialization is delegated to
CPUSETS code:

cpuset_handle_cpuhp() -> common_cpu_mem_hotplug_unplug() ->
rebuild_sched_domains()

Being called for CPU_UP_PREPARE and if its callback is called after
update_sched_domains()), it just negates all the work done by
update_sched_domains() -- i.e. a soon-to-be-offline cpu is included in
the sched-domains and that makes it visible for the load-balancer
while the CPU_DOWN ops. is in progress.

__migrate_live_tasks() moves the tasks off a 'dead' cpu (it's already
"offline" when this function is called).

try_to_wake_up() is called for one of these tasks from another CPU ->
the load-balancer (wake_idle()) picks up a "dead" CPU and places the
task on it. Then e.g. BUG_ON(rq->nr_running) detects this a bit later
-> oops.

The current definition of wksidarr works fine on little endian arches
(since cpu_to_le32 is a no-op there), but on big-endian arches, it fails
to compile with this error:

error: braced-group within expression allowed only inside a function

The problem is that this static declaration has cpu_to_le32 embedded
within it, and that expands into a function macro.  We need to use
__constant_cpu_to_le32() instead.

cifs: fix inode leak in cifs_get_inode_info_unix

Try this:

    mount a share with unix extensions
    create a file on it
    umount the share

You'll get the following message in the ring buffer:

VFS: Busy inodes after unmount of cifs. Self-destruct in 5 seconds.  Have a
nice day...

...the problem is that cifs_get_inode_info_unix is creating and hashing
a new inode even when it's going to return error anyway. The first
lookup when creating a file returns an error so we end up leaking this

ov7670: clean up ov7670_read semantics

Cortland Setlow pointed out a bug in ov7670.c where the result from
ov7670_read() was just being checked for !0, rather than <0.  This made me
realize that ov7670_read's semantics were rather confusing; it both fills
in 'value' with the result, and returns it.  This is goes against general
kernel convention; so rather than fixing callers, let's fix the function.

This makes ov7670_read return <0 in the case of an error, and 0 upon
success. Thus, code like:

res = ov7670_read(...);
if (!res)
goto error;

..will work properly.

12 years agofbdev: bugfix for multiprocess defio
Jaya Kumar [Sat, 12 Jul 2008 20:47:51 +0000]
fbdev: bugfix for multiprocess defio

This patch is a bugfix for how defio handles multiple processes manipulating
the same framebuffer.

Thanks to Bernard Blackham for identifying this bug.

It occurs when two applications mmap the same framebuffer and concurrently
write to the same page.  Normally, this doesn't occur since only a single
process mmaps the framebuffer.  The symptom of the bug is that the mapping
applications will hang.  The cause is that defio incorrectly tries to add the
same page twice to the pagelist.  The solution I have is to walk the pagelist
and check for a duplicate before adding.  Since I needed to walk the pagelist,
I now also keep the pagelist in sorted order.

[SCSI] bsg: fix oops on remove

If you do a modremove of any sas driver, you run into an oops on
shutdown when the host is removed (coming from the host bsg device).
The root cause seems to be that there's a use after free of the
bsg_class_device:  In bsg_kref_release_function, this is used (to do a
put_device(bcg->parent) after bcg->release has been called.  In sas (and
possibly many other things) bcd->release frees the queue which contains
the bsg_class_device, so we get a put_device on unreferenced memory.
Fix this by taking a copy of the pointer to the parent before releasing
bsg.

onboard on older motherboards which don't handle MSI correctly, so
default both these cases to disabled.  Enable by setting the module

For the SAS case, enable MSI by default, but it can be disabled by

Dave Chinner [Fri, 11 Jul 2008 07:43:55 +0000]
Fix reference counting race on log buffers

When we release the iclog, we do an atomic_dec_and_lock to determine if
we are the last reference and need to trigger update of log headers and
writeout.  However, in xlog_state_get_iclog_space() we also need to
check if we have the last reference count there.  If we do, we release
the log buffer, otherwise we decrement the reference count.

But the compare and decrement in xlog_state_get_iclog_space() is not
atomic, so both places can see a reference count of 2 and neither will
release the iclog.  That leads to a filesystem hang.

Close the race by replacing the atomic_read() and atomic_dec() pair with
atomic_add_unless() to ensure that they are executed atomically.

libata-acpi: filter out DIPM enable

Some BIOSen enable DIPM via _GTF which causes command timeouts under
certain configuration.  This didn't occur on 2.6.25 because 2.6.25
defaulted to SRST, so _GTF wasn't executed during boot probe, so ahci
host reset disabled DIPM and as _GTF wasn't executed after SRST, DIPM
wasn't enabled.  On 2.6.26, hardreset is used during probe and after
probe _GTF is executed enabling DIPM and thus the failures.

This patch could theoretically disable DIPM on machines which used to
have it enabled on 2.6.25 but AFAIK ahci is currently the only driver
which uses SATA ACPI hierarchy (_SDD) and as the host reset would have
always disabled DIPM, this shouldn't happen.

Max Krasnyansky [Thu, 10 Jul 2008 23:59:11 +0000]
tun: Persistent devices can get stuck in xoff state

The scenario goes like this. App stops reading from tun/tap.
TX queue gets full and driver does netif_stop_queue().
App closes fd and TX queue gets flushed as part of the cleanup.
Next time the app opens tun/tap and starts reading from it but
the xoff state is not cleared. We're stuck.
Normally xoff state is cleared when netdev is brought up. But
in the case of persistent devices this happens only during
initial setup.

The fix is trivial. If device is already up when an app opens
it we clear xoff state and that gets things moving again.

So, no need to kfree_skb here on the error path. In this case we can
simply return.

ipv4: fib_trie: Fix lookup error return

In commit a07f5f508a4d9728c8e57d7f66294bf5b254ff7f "[IPV4] fib_trie: style
cleanup", the changes to check_leaf() and fn_trie_lookup() were wrong - where
fn_trie_lookup() would previously return a negative error value from
check_leaf(), it now returns 0.

Now fn_trie_lookup() doesn't appear to care about plen, so we can revert
check_leaf() to returning the error value.

slub: Fix use-after-preempt of per-CPU data structure

Vegard Nossum reported a crash in kmem_cache_alloc():

BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at da87d000
IP: [<c01991c7>] kmem_cache_alloc+0xc7/0xe0

DS: 007b ES: 007b FS: 00d8 GS: 0033 SS: 0068

and analyzed it:

  "The register %ecx looks innocent but is very important here. The disassembly:

       mov    %edx,%ecx
       shr    $0x2,%ecx
       rep stos %eax,%es:(%edi) <-- the fault

   So %ecx has been loaded from %edx... which is 0x6b6b6b6b/POISON_FREE.
   (0x6b6b6b6b >> 2 == 0x1adadada.)

   %ecx is the counter for the memset, from here:

       memset(object, 0, c->objsize);

  i.e. %ecx was loaded from c->objsize, so "c" must have been freed.
  Where did "c" come from? Uh-oh...

       c = get_cpu_slab(s, smp_processor_id());

  This looks like it has very much to do with CPU hotplug/unplug. Is
  there a race between SLUB/hotplug since the CPU slab is used after it
  has been freed?"

Good analysis.

Yeah, it's possible that a caller of kmem_cache_alloc() -> slab_alloc()
can be migrated on another CPU right after local_irq_restore() and
before memset().  The inital cpu can become offline in the mean time (or
a migration is a consequence of the CPU going offline) so its
'kmem_cache_cpu' structure gets freed ( slab_cpuup_callback).

At some point of time the caller continues on another CPU having an
obsolete pointer...

12 years agoexec: fix stack excutability without PT_GNU_STACK
Hugh Dickins [Thu, 10 Jul 2008 20:19:20 +0000]
exec: fix stack excutability without PT_GNU_STACK

Kernel Bugzilla #11063 points out that on some architectures (e.g. x86_32)
exec'ing an ELF without a PT_GNU_STACK program header should default to an
executable stack; but this got broken by the unlimited argv feature because
stack vma is now created before the right personality has been established:
so breaking old binaries using nested function trampolines.

Therefore re-evaluate VM_STACK_FLAGS in setup_arg_pages, where stack
vm_flags used to be set, before the mprotect_fixup.  Checking through
our existing VM_flags, none would have changed since insert_vm_struct:
so this seems safer than finding a way through the personality labyrinth.
