Arnd Bergmann [Wed, 18 May 2005 12:40:59 +0000]
[PATCH] libfs: add simple attribute files

Based on the discussion about spufs attributes, this is my suggestion
for a more generic attribute file support that can be used by both
debugfs and spufs.

Simple attribute files behave similarly to sequential files from
a kernel programmers perspective in that a standard set of file
operations is provided and only an open operation needs to
be written that registers file specific get() and set() functions.

These operations are defined as

void foo_set(void *data, u64 val); and
u64 foo_get(void *data);

where data is the inode->u.generic_ip pointer of the file and the
operations just need to make send of that pointer. The infrastructure
makes sure this works correctly with concurrent access and partial
read calls.

A macro named DEFINE_SIMPLE_ATTRIBUTE is provided to further simplify
using the attributes.

This patch already contains the changes for debugfs to use attributes
for its internal file operations.

[PATCH] driver core: Fix races in driver_detach()

This patch is intended for your "driver" tree.  It fixes several subtle
races in driver_detach() and device_release_driver() in the driver-model
core.

The major change is to use klist_remove() rather than klist_del() when
taking a device off its driver's list.  There's no other way to guarantee
that the list pointers will be updated before some other driver binds to
the device.  For this to work driver_detach() can't use a klist iterator,
so the loop over the devices must be written out in full.  In addition the
patch protects against the possibility that, when a driver and a device
are unregistered at the same time, one may be unloaded from memory before
the other is finished using it.

Patrick Mochel [Mon, 20 Jun 2005 22:15:28 +0000]
[PATCH] usb: klist_node_attached() fix

The original code looks like this:

        /* if interface was already added, bind now; else let
         * the future device_add() bind it, bypassing probe()
         */
        if (!list_empty (&dev->bus_list))
                device_bind_driver(dev);

IOW, it's checking to see if the device is attached to the bus or not
and binding the driver if it is. It's checking the device's bus list,
which will only appear empty when the device has been initialized, but
not added. It depends way too much on the driver model internals, but it
seems to be the only way to do the weird crap they want to do with
interfaces.

When I converted it to use klists, I accidentally inverted the logic,
which led to bad things happening. This patch returns the check to its
orginal value.

15 years ago[PATCH] Driver Core: fix bk-driver-core kills ppc64
Patrick Mochel [Wed, 6 Apr 2005 06:46:33 +0000]
[PATCH] Driver Core: fix bk-driver-core kills ppc64

There's no check to see if the device is already bound to a driver, which
could do bad things.  The first thing to go wrong is that it will try to match
a driver with a device already bound to one.  In some cases (it appears with
USB with drivers/usb/core/usb.c::usb_match_id()), some drivers will match a
device based on the class type, so it would be common (especially for HID
devices) to match a device that is already bound.

The fun comes when ->probe() is called, it fails, then
driver_probe_device() does this:

dev->driver = NULL;

Later on, that pointer could be be dereferenced without checking and cause
hell to break loose.

This problem could be nasty. It's very hardware dependent, since some
devices could have a different set of matching qualifiers than others.

Now, I don't quite see exactly where/how you were getting that crash.
You're dereferencing bad memory, but I'm not sure which pointer was bad
and where it came from, but it could have come from a couple of different
places.

The patch below will hopefully fix it all up for you. It's against
2.6.12-rc2-mm1, and does the following:

- Move logic to driver_probe_device() and comments uncommon returns:
  1 - If device is bound
  0 - If device not bound, and no error
  error - If there was an error.

- Move locking to caller of that function, since we want to lock a
  device for the entire time we're trying to bind it to a driver (to
  prevent against a driver being loaded at the same time).

- Update __device_attach() and __driver_attach() to do that locking.

- Check if device is already bound in __driver_attach()

- Update the converse device_release_driver() so it locks the device
  around all of the operations.

- Mark driver_probe_device() as static and remove export. It's an
  internal function, it should stay that way, and there are no other
  callers. If there is ever a need to export it, we can audit it as
  necessary.

15 years ago[PATCH] Add initial implementation of klist helpers.
mochel@digitalimplant.org [Mon, 21 Mar 2005 19:45:16 +0000]
[PATCH] Add initial implementation of klist helpers.

This klist interface provides a couple of structures that wrap around
struct list_head to provide explicit list "head" (struct klist) and
list "node" (struct klist_node) objects. For struct klist, a spinlock
is included that protects access to the actual list itself. struct
klist_node provides a pointer to the klist that owns it and a kref
reference count that indicates the number of current users of that node
in the list.

The entire point is to provide an interface for iterating over a list
that is safe and allows for modification of the list during the
iteration (e.g. insertion and removal), including modification of the
current node on the list.

It works using a 3rd object type - struct klist_iter - that is declared
and initialized before an iteration. klist_next() is used to acquire the
next element in the list. It returns NULL if there are no more items.

Internally, that routine takes the klist's lock, decrements the reference
count of the previous klist_node and increments the count of the next
klist_node. It then drops the lock and returns.

There are primitives for adding and removing nodes to/from a klist.
When deleting, klist_del() will simply decrement the reference count.
Only when the count goes to 0 is the node removed from the list.
klist_remove() will try to delete the node from the list and block
until it is actually removed. This is useful for objects (like devices)
that have been removed from the system and must be freed (but must wait
until all accessors have finished).

[IPV4]: [4/4] signed vs unsigned cleanup in net/ipv4/raw.c

This patch changes the type of the third parameter 'length' of the
raw_send_hdrinc() function from 'int' to 'size_t'.
This makes sense since this function is only ever called from one
location, and the value passed as the third parameter in that location is
itself of type size_t, so this makes the recieving functions parameter
type match. Also, inside raw_send_hdrinc() the 'length' variable is
used in comparisons with unsigned values and passed as parameter to
functions expecting unsigned values (it's used in a single comparison with
a signed value, but that one can never actually be negative so the patch

15 years ago[IPV4]: [3/4] signed vs unsigned cleanup in net/ipv4/raw.c
Jesper Juhl [Sun, 19 Jun 2005 06:00:15 +0000]
[IPV4]: [3/4] signed vs unsigned cleanup in net/ipv4/raw.c

This patch changes the type of the local variable 'i' in
raw_probe_proto_opt() from 'int' to 'unsigned int'. The only use of 'i' in
this function is as a counter in a for() loop and subsequent index into
the msg->msg_iov[] array.
Since 'i' is compared in a loop to the unsigned variable msg->msg_iovlen
gcc -W generates this warning :

net/ipv4/raw.c:340: warning: comparison between signed and unsigned

Changing 'i' to unsigned silences this warning and is safe since the array
index can never be negative anyway, so unsigned int is the logical type to
use for 'i' and also enables a larger msg_iov[] array (but I don't know if
that will ever matter).

[IPV4]: [2/4] signed vs unsigned cleanup in net/ipv4/raw.c

net/ipv4/raw.c:387: warning: comparison of unsigned expression < 0 is always false

Since 'len' is of type size_t it is unsigned and can thus never be <0, and
since this is obvious from the function declaration just a few lines above
I think it's ok to remove the pointless check for len<0.

[IPV4]: [1/4] signed vs unsigned cleanup in net/ipv4/raw.c

This patch silences these two gcc -W warnings in net/ipv4/raw.c :

net/ipv4/raw.c:517: warning: signed and unsigned type in conditional expression
net/ipv4/raw.c:613: warning: signed and unsigned type in conditional expression

It doesn't change the behaviour of the code, simply writes the conditional
expression with plain 'if()' syntax instead of '? :' , but since this
breaks it into sepperate statements gcc no longer complains about having
both a signed and unsigned value in the same conditional expression.

This patch replaces the spin_lock_irqsave call on the receive queue
lock in SCTP with spin_lock_bh.  Despite the proliferation of
spin_lock_irqsave calls in this stack, it is only entered from the
IPv4/IPv6 stack and user space.  That is, it is never entered from
hardirq context.

The call in question is only called from recvmsg which means that
IRQs aren't disabled.  Therefore it is safe to replace it with
spin_lock_bh.
