[PATCH] RTC: rtc-dev UIE emulation

Import genrtc's RTC UIE emulation (CONFIG_GEN_RTC_X) to rtc-dev driver with
slight adjustments/refinements.  This makes UIE-less rtc drivers work
better with programs doing read/poll on /dev/rtc, such as hwclock.  This
emulation should not harm rtc drivers with UIE support, since
rtc_dev_ioctl() calls underlaying rtc driver's ioctl() first.

[PATCH] "RTC-framework" driver for DS1307 and similar RTC chips

This is an "RTC-framework" driver for DS1307 and similar RTC chips,

It should be a full replacement for the existing ds1337.c driver (using the
older RTC glue), giving a net increase in the number of RTC chips that work
out-of-the-box.  There's a whole cluster of RTCs that are very similar, but
the 1337 driver was a bit too picky to work with most of them.

Still no support for RTC alarm IRQs (on chips that support them).

Davide Libenzi [Sun, 25 Jun 2006 12:48:14 +0000]
[PATCH] epoll: use unlocked wqueue operations

A few days ago Arjan signaled a lockdep red flag on epoll locks, and
precisely between the epoll's device structure lock (->lock) and the wait
queue head lock (->lock).

Like I explained in another email, and directly to Arjan, this can't happen
in reality because of the explicit check at eventpoll.c:592, that does not
allow to drop an epoll fd inside the same epoll fd.  Since lockdep is
working on per-structure locks, it will never be able to know of policies
enforced in other parts of the code.

It was decided time ago of having the ability to drop epoll fds inside
other epoll fds, that triggers a very trick wakeup operations (due to
possibly reentrant callback-driven wakeups) handled by the
ep_poll_safewake() function.  While looking again at the code though, I
noticed that all the operations done on the epoll's main structure wait
queue head (->wq) are already protected by the epoll lock (->lock), so that
locked-style functions can be used to manipulate the ->wq member.  This
makes both a lock-acquire save, and lockdep happy.

Running totalmess on my dual opteron for a while did not reveal any problem
so far:

Mingming Cao [Sun, 25 Jun 2006 12:48:06 +0000]
[PATCH] ext3_fsblk_t: filesystem, group blocks and bug fixes

Some of the in-kernel ext3 block variable type are treated as signed 4 bytes
int type, thus limited ext3 filesystem to 8TB (4kblock size based).  While
trying to fix them, it seems quite confusing in the ext3 code where some
blocks are filesystem-wide blocks, some are group relative offsets that need
to be signed value (as -1 has special meaning).  So it seem saner to define
two types of physical blocks: one is filesystem wide blocks, another is
group-relative blocks.  The following patches clarify these two types of
blocks in the ext3 code, and fix the type bugs which limit current 32 bit ext3
filesystem limit to 8TB.

With this series of patches and the percpu counter data type changes in the mm
tree, we are able to extend exts filesystem limit to 16TB.

This work is also a pre-request for the recent >32 bit ext3 work, and makes
the kernel to able to address 48 bit ext3 block a lot easier: Simply redefine
ext3_fsblk_t from unsigned long to sector_t and redefine the format string for
ext3 filesystem block corresponding.

Two RFC with a series patches have been posted to ext2-devel list and have
been reviewed and discussed:
http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=ext2-devel&m=114722190816690&w=2

http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=ext2-devel&m=114784919525942&w=2

Patches are tested on both 32 bit machine and 64 bit machine, <8TB ext3 and
>8TB ext3 filesystem(with the latest to be released e2fsprogs-1.39).  Tests
includes overnight fsx, tiobench, dbench and fsstress.

This patch:

Defines ext3_fsblk_t and ext3_grpblk_t, and the printk format string for
filesystem wide blocks.

This patch classifies all block group relative blocks, and ext3_fsblk_t blocks
occurs in the same function where used to be confusing before.  Also include
kernel bug fixes for filesystem wide in-kernel block variables.  There are
some fileystem wide blocks are treated as int/unsigned int type in the kernel
currently, especially in ext3 block allocation and reservation code.  This
patch fixed those bugs by converting those variables to ext3_fsblk_t(unsigned
long) type.

NeilBrown [Sun, 25 Jun 2006 12:48:02 +0000]
[PATCH] Make copy_from_user_inatomic NOT zero the tail on i386

As described in a previous patch and documented in mm/filemap.h,
copy_from_user_inatomic* shouldn't zero out the tail of the buffer after an
incomplete copy.

This patch implements that change for i386.

For the _nocache version, a new __copy_user_intel_nocache is defined similar
to copy_user_zeroio_intel_nocache, and this is ultimately used for the copy.

For the regular version, __copy_from_user_ll_nozero is defined which uses
__copy_user and __copy_user_intel - the later needs casts to reposition the
__user annotations.

If copy_from_user_atomic is given a constant length of 1, 2, or 4, then we do
still zero the destintion on failure.  This didn't seem worth the effort of
fixing as the places where it is used really don't care.

14 years ago[PATCH] Prepare for __copy_from_user_inatomic to not zero missed bytes
NeilBrown [Sun, 25 Jun 2006 12:47:58 +0000]
[PATCH] Prepare for __copy_from_user_inatomic to not zero missed bytes

The problem is that when we write to a file, the copy from userspace to
pagecache is first done with preemption disabled, so if the source address is
not immediately available the copy fails *and* *zeros* *the* *destination*.

This is a problem because a concurrent read (which admittedly is an odd thing
to do) might see zeros rather that was there before the write, or what was
there after, or some mixture of the two (any of these being a reasonable thing
to see).

If the copy did fail, it will immediately be retried with preemption
re-enabled so any transient problem with accessing the source won't cause an
error.

The first copying does not need to zero any uncopied bytes, and doing so
causes the problem.  It uses copy_from_user_atomic rather than copy_from_user
so the simple expedient is to change copy_from_user_atomic to *not* zero out
bytes on failure.

The first of these two patches prepares for the change by fixing two places
which assume copy_from_user_atomic does zero the tail.  The two usages are
very similar pieces of code which copy from a userspace iovec into one or more
page-cache pages.  These are changed to remove the assumption.

The second patch changes __copy_from_user_inatomic* to not zero the tail.
Once these are accepted, I will look at similar patches of other architectures
where this is important (ppc, mips and sparc being the ones I can find).

This patch:

There is a problem with __copy_from_user_inatomic zeroing the tail of the
buffer in the case of an error.  As it is called in atomic context, the error
may be transient, so it results in zeros being written where maybe they
shouldn't be.

In the usage in filemap, this opens a window for a well timed read to see data
(zeros) which is not consistent with any ordering of reads and writes.

Most cases where __copy_from_user_inatomic is called, a failure results in
__copy_from_user being called immediately.  As long as the latter zeros the
tail, the former doesn't need to.  However in *copy_from_user_iovec
implementations (in both filemap and ntfs/file), it is assumed that
copy_from_user_inatomic will zero the tail.

This patch removes that assumption, so that after this patch it will
be safe for copy_from_user_inatomic to not zero the tail.

This patch also adds some commentary to filemap.h and asm-i386/uaccess.h.

After this patch, all architectures that might disable preempt when
kmap_atomic is called need to have their __copy_from_user_inatomic* "fixed".
This includes
 - powerpc
 - i386
 - mips
 - sparc

schedule_on_each_cpu() presently does a large kmalloc - 96 kbytes on 1024 CPU

Rework it so that we do one 8192-byte allocation and then a pile of tiny ones,
via alloc_percpu().  This has a much higher chance of success (100% in the

"Section" data (contents) are split from the section header

).

Currently the data/contents begins with a space and is left that way, which
causes it to look bad when printed (in text mode; see example below), so
just remove the leading space.

[PATCH] pdflush: handle resume wakeups

pdflush is carefully designed to ensure that all wakeups have some
corresponding work to do - if a woken-up pdflush thread discovers that it
hasn't been given any work to do then this is considered an error.

That all broke when swsusp came along - because a timer-delivered wakeup to a
frozen pdflush thread will just get lost.  This causes the pdflush thread to
get lost as well: the writeback timer is supposed to be re-armed by pdflush in
process context, but pdflush doesn't execute the callout which does this.

Fix that up by ignoring the return value from try_to_freeze(): jsut proceed,
see if we have any work pending and only go back to sleep if that is not the

Alan Cox [Sun, 25 Jun 2006 12:47:44 +0000]
[PATCH] IDE CD end-of media error fix

This is a patch from Alan that fixes a real ide-cd.c regression causing
bogus "Media Check" failures for perfectly valid Fedora install ISOs, on
certain CD-ROM drives.

This is a forward port to 2.6.16 (from RHEL) of the minimal changes for the
end of media problem.  It may not be sufficient for some controllers
(promise notably) and it does not touch the locking so the error path
locking is as horked as in mainstream.

From: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>

I have ported the patch to 2.6.17-rc4 and tested it by provoking
end-of-media IO errors with an unaligned ISO image.  Unlike the vanilla
kernel, the patched kernel interpreted the error condition correctly with
512 byte granularity:

 hdc: command error: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
 hdc: command error: error=0x54 { AbortedCommand LastFailedSense=0x05 }
 ide: failed opcode was: unknown
 ATAPI device hdc:
   Error: Illegal request -- (Sense key=0x05)
   Illegal mode for this track or incompatible medium -- (asc=0x64, ascq=0x00)
   The failed "Read 10" packet command was:
   "28 00 00 04 fb 78 00 00 06 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 "
 end_request: I/O error, dev hdc, sector 1306080
 Buffer I/O error on device hdc, logical block 163260
 Buffer I/O error on device hdc, logical block 163261
 Buffer I/O error on device hdc, logical block 163262

the unpatched kernel produces an incorrect error dump:

 hdc: command error: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
 hdc: command error: error=0x54 { AbortedCommand LastFailedSense=0x05 }
 ide: failed opcode was: unknown
 end_request: I/O error, dev hdc, sector 1306080
 Buffer I/O error on device hdc, logical block 163260
 hdc: command error: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
 hdc: command error: error=0x54 { AbortedCommand LastFailedSense=0x05 }
 ide: failed opcode was: unknown
 end_request: I/O error, dev hdc, sector 1306088
 Buffer I/O error on device hdc, logical block 163261
 hdc: command error: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
 hdc: command error: error=0x54 { AbortedCommand LastFailedSense=0x05 }
 ide: failed opcode was: unknown
 end_request: I/O error, dev hdc, sector 1306096
 Buffer I/O error on device hdc, logical block 163262

I do not have the right type of CD-ROM drive to reproduce the end-of-media
data corruption bug myself, but this same patch in RHEL solved it.

Michael Ellerman [Sun, 25 Jun 2006 12:47:40 +0000]
[PATCH] Make printk work for really early debugging

Currently printk is no use for early debugging because it refuses to
actually print anything to the console unless
cpu_online(smp_processor_id()) is true.

The stated explanation is that console drivers may require per-cpu
resources, or otherwise barf, because the system is not yet setup
correctly.  Fair enough.

However some console drivers might be quite happy running early during
boot, in fact we have one, and so it'd be nice if printk understood that.

So I added a flag (which I would have called CON_BOOT, but that's taken)
called CON_ANYTIME, which indicates that a console is happy to be called
anytime, even if the cpu is not yet online.

Tested on a Power 5 machine, with both a CON_ANYTIME driver and a bogus
console driver that BUG()s if called while offline.  No problems AFAICT.
Built for i386 UP & SMP.

[PATCH] idetape gcc 4.1 warning fix

In both the read and write cases it will return an error if
copy_{from/to}_user faults.  However, I let the driver try to read/write as
much as it can just as it normally would , then finally it returns an error
if there was one.  This was the most straight forward way to handle the
error , since there isn't a clear way to clean up the buffers on error .

I moved retval in idetape_chrdev_write() down into the actual code blocks
since it's really once used there, and it conflicted with my ret variable.

[PATCH] ufs: make fsck -f happy

ufs super block contains some statistic about file systems, like amount of
directories, free blocks, inodes and so on.

UFS1 hold this information in one location and uses 32bit integers for such
information, UFS2 hold statistic in another location and uses 64bit integers.

There is transition variant, if UFS1 has type 44BSD and flags field in super
block has some special value this mean that we work with statistic like UFS2
does.  and this also means that nobody care about old(UFS1) statistic.

So if start fsck against such file system, after usage linux ufs driver, it
found error: at now only UFS1 like statistic is updated.

This patch should fix this.  Also it contains some minor cleanup: CodingSytle

[PATCH] ufs: one way to access super block

Super block of UFS usually has size >512, because of fragment size may be 512,
this cause some problems.

Currently, there are two methods to work with ufs super block:

1) split structure which describes ufs super blocks into structures with
   size <=512

2) use one structure which describes ufs super block, and hope that array
   of "buffer_head" which holds "super block", has such construction:

bh[n]->b_data + bh[n]->b_size == bh[n + 1]->b_data

The second variant may cause some problems in the future, and usage of two
variants cause unnecessary code duplication.

This patch remove the second variant.  Also patch contains some CodingStyle
fixes.

* reduce code size and its complexity
* some global locks go away
* fix bugs

[PATCH] ufs: change block number on the fly

First of all some necessary notes about UFS by it self: To avoid waste of disk
space the tail of file consists not from blocks (which is ordinary big enough,
16K usually), it consists from fragments(which is ordinary 2K).  When file is
growing its tail occupy 1 fragment, 2 fragments...  At some stage decision to
allocate whole block is made and all fragments are moved to one block.

How this situation was handled before:

  ufs_prepare_write
  ->block_prepare_write
    ->ufs_getfrag_block
      ->...
        ->ufs_new_fragments:

bh = sb_bread
bh->b_blocknr = result + i;
mark_buffer_dirty (bh);

This is wrong solution, because:

- it didn't take into consideration that there is another cache: "inode page
  cache"

- because of sb_getblk uses not b_blocknr, (it uses page->index) to find
  certain block, this breaks sb_getblk.

How this situation is handled now: we go though all "page inode cache", if
there are no such page in cache we load it into cache, and change b_blocknr.

[PATCH] Define __raw_get_cpu_var and use it

There are several instances of per_cpu(foo, raw_smp_processor_id()), which
is semantically equivalent to __get_cpu_var(foo) but without the warning
that smp_processor_id() can give if CONFIG_DEBUG_PREEMPT is enabled.  For
those architectures with optimized per-cpu implementations, namely ia64,
powerpc, s390, sparc64 and x86_64, per_cpu() turns into more and slower
code than __get_cpu_var(), so it would be preferable to use __get_cpu_var
on those platforms.

This defines a __raw_get_cpu_var(x) macro which turns into per_cpu(x,
raw_smp_processor_id()) on architectures that use the generic per-cpu
implementation, and turns into __get_cpu_var(x) on the architectures that
have an optimized per-cpu implementation.

[PATCH] m68k: convert generic irq code to irq controller

Convert the generic irq code to use irq controller, this gets rid of the
machine specific callbacks and gives better control over irq handling without
duplicating lots of code.
