Zachary Amsden [Fri, 6 Jan 2006 08:11:55 +0000]
[PATCH] x86: Pnp byte granularity

The one remaining caller of set_limit, the PnP BIOS code, calls into the PnP
BIOS, passing kernel parameters in and out.  These parameteres may be passed
from arbitrary kernel virtual memory, so they deserve strict protection to
stop a bad BIOS from smashing beyond the object size.

Unfortunately, the use of set_limit was badly botching this by setting the
limit in terms of pages, when it really should have byte granularity.

When doing this, I discovered my BIOS had the buggy code during the "get
system device node" call:

 mov ax, es:[bx]

Which is harmless, but has a trivial workaround.

15 years ago[PATCH] x86: Always relax segments
Zachary Amsden [Fri, 6 Jan 2006 08:11:53 +0000]
[PATCH] x86: Always relax segments

APM BIOSes have many bugs regarding proper representation of the appropriate
segment limits for calling the BIOS.  By default, APM_RELAX_SEGMENTS is always
turned on to support running the APM BIOS on these buggy machines.  Keeping
64k limits poses very little danger to the kernel, because the pages where the
APM BIOS is located will always be in low physical memory BIOS areas, which
should already be marked reserved, and only buggy BIOSes would possibly
overstep the segment bounds with writes to data anyway.

Since forcing stricter limits breaks many machines and is not default
behavior, it seems reasonable to deprecate the older code which may cause APM
BIOS to fault.

If you really have a badly enough broken APM BIOS that you have to turn off
APM_RELAX_SEGMENTS, seems like the best recourse here would be to disable the
APM BIOS and / or not compile it into your kernel to begin with, and / or add
your system to the known bad list.

The reason I want to deprecate this code is there is underlying brokenness
with the set_limit macros, and getting rid of many of the call sites rather
than rewriting them seems to be the simplest and most correct course of
action.

     be given an opportunity to single-step into the signal handler.

 (3) The error state from setting up a signal frame should be passed back up
     the call chain.

 (4) The segfault handler shouldn't be preemptively reset in the arch if we

 (2) ramfs files now need resizing using do_truncate() rather than by modifying
     the inode size directly (see shmem_file_setup()). This causes ramfs to
     attempt to bind a block of pages of sufficient size to the inode.

David Howells [Fri, 6 Jan 2006 08:11:41 +0000]
[PATCH] NOMMU: Provide shared-writable mmap support on ramfs

The attached patch makes ramfs support shared-writable mmaps by:

 (1) Attempting to perform a contiguous block allocation to the requested size
     when truncate attempts to increase the file from zero size, such as
     happens when:

fd = shm_open("/file/on/ramfs", ...):
ftruncate(fd, size_requested);
addr = mmap(NULL, subsize, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE|PROT_EXEC, MAP_SHARED,
    fd, offset);

 (2) Permitting any shared-writable mapping over any contiguous set of extant
     pages. get_unmapped_area() will return the address into the actual ramfs
     pages. The mapping may start anywhere and be of any size, but may not go
     over the end of file. Multiple mappings may overlap in any way.

 (3) Not permitting a file to be shrunk if it would truncate any shared
     mappings (private mappings are copied).

Thus this patch provides support for POSIX shared memory on NOMMU kernels,
with certain limitations such as there being a large enough block of pages
available to support the allocation and it only working on directly mappable
filesystems.

is a pci hotplug like when a cardbus card is plugged in.  So that function is
needed after init too.

Thanks to Asier Llano Palacios for reporting this.

[PATCH] ppc32: Modify Freescale MPC52xx IRQ mapping to _not_ use irq 0

AFAIK IRQ number 0 is a perfectly valid IRQ number.  But it seems there are
numerous places where it's considered to be invalid or "no irq" value.  Since
that value is problematic, the IRQ mapping is changed to not use it.

[PATCH] ppc32: Fix static IO mapping for Freescale MPC52xx

Several counters already have the need to use 64 atomic variables on 64 bit

The VM statistics patch that I am working on will also make more extensive
use of atomic64.

This patch introduces a new type atomic_long_t by providing definitions in
asm-generic/atomic.h that works similar to the c "long" type.  Its 32 bits
on 32 bit platforms and 64 bits on 64 bit platforms.

Also cleans up the determination of the mm_counter_t in sched.h.

[PATCH] vmscan: balancing fix

Revert a patch which went into 2.6.8-rc1.  The changelog for that patch was:

  The shrink_zone() logic can, under some circumstances, cause far too many
  pages to be reclaimed.  Say, we're scanning at high priority and suddenly
  hit a large number of reclaimable pages on the LRU.

  Change things so we bale out when SWAP_CLUSTER_MAX pages have been
  reclaimed.

Problem is, this change caused significant imbalance in inter-zone scan
balancing by truncating scans of larger zones.

Suppose, for example, ZONE_HIGHMEM is 10x the size of ZONE_NORMAL.  The zone
balancing algorithm would require that if we're scanning 100 pages of
ZONE_HIGHMEM, we should scan 10 pages of ZONE_NORMAL.  But this logic will
cause the scanning of ZONE_HIGHMEM to bale out after only 32 pages are
reclaimed.  Thus effectively causing smaller zones to be scanned relatively
harder than large ones.

Now I need to remember what the workload was which caused me to write this
patch originally, then fix it up in a different way...

Minor optimization (though it doesn't help in the PREEMPT case, severely
constrained by small ZAP_BLOCK_SIZE).  free_pages_and_swap_cache works in
chunks of 16, calling release_pages which works in chunks of PAGEVEC_SIZE.
But PAGEVEC_SIZE was dropped from 16 to 14 in 2.6.10, so we're now doing more
spin_lock_irq'ing than necessary: use PAGEVEC_SIZE throughout.

15 years ago[PATCH] flatmem split out memory model
Andy Whitcroft [Fri, 6 Jan 2006 08:10:53 +0000]
[PATCH] flatmem split out memory model

There are three places we define pfn_to_nid().  Two in linux/mmzone.h and one
in asm/mmzone.h.  These in essence represent the three memory models.  The
definition in linux/mmzone.h under !NEED_MULTIPLE_NODES is both the FLATMEM
definition and the optimisation for single NUMA nodes; the one under SPARSEMEM
is the NUMA sparsemem one; the one in asm/mmzone.h under DISCONTIGMEM is the
discontigmem one.  This is not in the least bit obvious, particularly the
connection between the non-NUMA optimisations and the memory models.

Two patches:

flatmem-split-out-memory-model: simplifies the selection of pfn_to_nid()
implementations.  The selection is based primarily off the memory model
selected.  Optimisations for non-NUMA are applied where needed.

sparse-provide-pfn_to_nid: implement pfn_to_nid() for SPARSEMEM

This patch:

pfn_to_nid is memory model specific

The pfn_to_nid() call is memory model specific.  It represents the locality
identifier for the memory passed.  Classically this would be a NUMA node,
but not a chunk of memory under DISCONTIGMEM.

The SPARSEMEM and FLATMEM memory model non-NUMA versions of pfn_to_nid()
are folded together under NEED_MULTIPLE_NODES, while DISCONTIGMEM has its
own optimisation.  This is all very confusing.

This patch splits out each implementation of pfn_to_nid() so that we can
see them and the optimisations to each.

This was discussed at
http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-kernel&m=113166526217117&w=2

This patch changes the dequeueing to select a huge page near the node
executing instead of always beginning to check for free nodes from node 0.
This will result in a placement of the huge pages near the executing
processor improving performance.

The existing implementation can place the huge pages far away from the
executing processor causing significant degradation of performance.  The
search starting from zero also means that the lower zones quickly run out
of memory.  Selecting a huge page near the process distributed the huge
pages better.

[PATCH] Hugetlb: Copy on Write support

Implement copy-on-write support for hugetlb mappings so MAP_PRIVATE can be
supported.  This helps us to safely use hugetlb pages in many more
applications.  The patch makes the following changes.  If needed, I also have
it broken out according to the following paragraphs.

1. Add a pair of functions to set/clear write access on huge ptes.  The
   writable check in make_huge_pte is moved out to the caller for use by COW
   later.

2. Hugetlb copy-on-write requires special case handling in the following
   situations:

   - copy_hugetlb_page_range() - Copied pages must be write protected so
     a COW fault will be triggered (if necessary) if those pages are written
     to.

   - find_or_alloc_huge_page() - Only MAP_SHARED pages are added to the
     page cache.  MAP_PRIVATE pages still need to be locked however.

3. Provide hugetlb_cow() and calls from hugetlb_fault() and
   hugetlb_no_page() which handles the COW fault by making the actual copy.

4. Remove the check in hugetlbfs_file_map() so that MAP_PRIVATE mmaps
   will be allowed.  Make MAP_HUGETLB exempt from the depricated VM_RESERVED
   mapping check.

15 years ago[PATCH] madvise(MADV_REMOVE): remove pages from tmpfs shm backing store
Badari Pulavarty [Fri, 6 Jan 2006 08:10:38 +0000]
[PATCH] madvise(MADV_REMOVE): remove pages from tmpfs shm backing store

Here is the patch to implement madvise(MADV_REMOVE) - which frees up a
given range of pages & its associated backing store.  Current
implementation supports only shmfs/tmpfs and other filesystems return
-ENOSYS.

"Some app allocates large tmpfs files, then when some task quits and some
client disconnect, some memory can be released.  However the only way to
release tmpfs-swap is to MADV_REMOVE". - Andrea Arcangeli

Databases want to use this feature to drop a section of their bufferpool
(shared memory segments) - without writing back to disk/swap space.

This feature is also useful for supporting hot-plug memory on UML.

Concerns raised by Andrew Morton:

- "We have no plan for holepunching!  If we _do_ have such a plan (or
  might in the future) then what would the API look like?  I think
  sys_holepunch(fd, start, len), so we should start out with that."

- Using madvise is very weird, because people will ask "why do I need to
  mmap my file before I can stick a hole in it?"

- None of the other madvise operations call into the filesystem in this
  manner.  A broad question is: is this capability an MM operation or a
  filesytem operation?  truncate, for example, is a filesystem operation
  which sometimes has MM side-effects.  madvise is an mm operation and with
  this patch, it gains FS side-effects, only they're really, really
  significant ones."

Comments:

- Andrea suggested the fs operation too but then it's more efficient to
  have it as a mm operation with fs side effects, because they don't
  immediatly know fd and physical offset of the range.  It's possible to
  fixup in userland and to use the fs operation but it's more expensive,
  the vmas are already in the kernel and we can use them.

Short term plan &  Future Direction:

- We seem to need this interface only for shmfs/tmpfs files in the short
  term.  We have to add hooks into the filesystem for correctness and
  completeness.  This is what this patch does.

- In the future, plan is to support both fs and mmap apis also.  This
  also involves (other) filesystem specific functions to be implemented.

- Current patch doesn't support VM_NONLINEAR - which can be addressed in
  the future.

[PATCH] reiser4: vfs: add truncate_inode_pages_range()

This patch makes truncate_inode_pages_range from truncate_inode_pages.
truncate_inode_pages became a one-liner call to truncate_inode_pages_range.

Reiser4 needs truncate_inode_pages_ranges because it tries to keep
correspondence between existences of metadata pointing to data pages and pages
to which those metadata point to.  So, when metadata of certain part of file
is removed from filesystem tree, only pages of corresponding range are to be
truncated.

  This case of all cases, since it is handling a request that will free up
  more memory than is asked for (exiting tasks, e.g.) should be allowed to

  except ALLOC_NO_WATERMARKS, so that in a subsequent cleanup patch, I can

- This function returns -EINVAL all the time.  Fix.

- Decruftify it a bit too.

- Writing to it doesn't seem to do what it's suppoed to do.

15 years ago[PATCH] knfsd: fix hash function for IP addresses on 64bit little-endian machines.
NeilBrown [Fri, 6 Jan 2006 08:09:49 +0000]
[PATCH] knfsd: fix hash function for IP addresses on 64bit little-endian machines.

The hash.h hash_long function, when used on a 64 bit machine, ignores many
of the middle-order bits.  (The prime chosen it too bit-sparse).

IP addresses for clients of an NFS server are very likely to differ only in
the low-order bits.  As addresses are stored in network-byte-order, these
bits become middle-order bits in a little-endian 64bit 'long', and so do
not contribute to the hash.  Thus you can have the situation where all
clients appear on one hash chain.

So, until hash_long is fixed (or maybe forever), us a hash function that
works well on IP addresses - xor the bytes together.

Thanks to "Iozone" <capps@iozone.org> for identifying this problem.

15 years ago[PATCH] nbd: fix TX/RX race condition
Herbert Xu [Fri, 6 Jan 2006 08:09:47 +0000]
[PATCH] nbd: fix TX/RX race condition

Janos Haar of First NetCenter Bt.  reported numerous crashes involving the
NBD driver.  With his help, this was tracked down to bogus bio vectors
which in turn was the result of a race condition between the
receive/transmit routines in the NBD driver.

The bug manifests itself like this:

CPU0 CPU1
do_nbd_request
add req to queuelist
nbd_send_request
send req head
for each bio
kmap
send
nbd_read_stat
nbd_find_request
nbd_end_request
kunmap

When CPU1 finishes nbd_end_request, the request and all its associated
bio's are freed.  So when CPU0 calls kunmap whose argument is derived from
the last bio, it may crash.

Under normal circumstances, the race occurs only on the last bio.  However,
if an error is encountered on the remote NBD server (such as an incorrect
magic number in the request), or if there were a bug in the server, it is
possible for the nbd_end_request to occur any time after the request's
addition to the queuelist.

The following patch fixes this problem by making sure that requests are not
added to the queuelist until after they have been completed transmission.

In order for the receiving side to be ready for responses involving
requests still being transmitted, the patch introduces the concept of the
active request.

When a response matches the current active request, its processing is
delayed until after the tranmission has come to a stop.

This has been tested by Janos and it has been successful in curing this
race condition.

From: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>

  Here is an updated patch which removes the active_req wait in
  nbd_clear_queue and the associated memory barrier.

  I've also clarified this in the comment.

15 years ago[PATCH] i386: PTRACE_POKEUSR: allow changing RF bit in EFLAGS register.
Chuck Ebbert [Fri, 6 Jan 2006 04:11:29 +0000]
[PATCH] i386: PTRACE_POKEUSR: allow changing RF bit in EFLAGS register.

Setting RF (resume flag) allows a debugger to resume execution after a
code breakpoint without tripping the breakpoint again.  It is reset by
the CPU after execution of one instruction.

Requested by Stephane Eranian:
  "I am trying to the user HW debug registers on i386 and I am running
   into a problem with ptrace() not allowing access to EFLAGS_RF for
   POKEUSER (see FLAG_MASK).  [ ...  ] It avoids the need to remove the
   breakpoint, single step, and reinstall.  The equivalent functionality
   exists on IA-64 and is allowed by ptrace()"
