14 years ago[NET] netpoll: break recursive loop in netpoll rx path
Neil Horman [Mon, 26 Jun 2006 07:04:27 +0000]
[NET] netpoll: break recursive loop in netpoll rx path

The netpoll system currently has a rx to tx path via:

netpoll_rx
 __netpoll_rx
  arp_reply
   netpoll_send_skb
    dev->hard_start_tx

This rx->tx loop places network drivers at risk of inadvertently causing a
deadlock or BUG halt by recursively trying to acquire a spinlock that is
used in both their rx and tx paths (this problem was origionally reported
to me in the 3c59x driver, which shares a spinlock between the
boomerang_interrupt and boomerang_start_xmit routines).

This patch breaks this loop, by queueing arp frames, so that they can be
responded to after all receive operations have been completed.  Tested by
myself and the reported with successful results.

Specifically it was tested with netdump.  Heres the BZ with details:

[NET]: skb_find_text ignores to argument

skb_find_text takes a "to" argument which is supposed to limit how
far into the skb it will search for the given text.  At present,
it seems to ignore that argument on the first skb, and instead
return a match even if the text occurs beyond the limit.

Patch below fixes this, after adjusting for the "from" starting
point.  This consequently fixes the netfilter string match's "--to"

[NET]: Fix CHECKSUM_HW GSO problems.

Fix checksum problems in the GSO code path for CHECKSUM_HW packets.

The ipv4 TCP pseudo header checksum has to be adjusted for GSO
segmented packets.

The adjustment is needed because the length field in the pseudo-header
changes.  However, because we have the inequality oldlen > newlen, we
know that delta = (u16)~oldlen + newlen is still a 16-bit quantity.
This also means that htonl(delta) + th->check still fits in 32 bits.
Therefore we don't have to use csum_add on this operations.

This is based on a patch by Michael Chan <mchan@broadcom.com>.

After a bonnie++ run:

So remove it.

Amul Shah [Sun, 25 Jun 2006 12:49:31 +0000]
[PATCH] Fix kdump Crash Kernel boot memory reservation for NUMA machines

This patch will fix a boot memory reservation bug that trashes memory on
the ES7000 when loading the kdump crash kernel.

The code in arch/x86_64/kernel/setup.c to reserve boot memory for the crash
kernel uses the non-numa aware "reserve_bootmem" function instead of the
NUMA aware "reserve_bootmem_generic".  I checked to make sure that no other
function was using "reserve_bootmem" and found none, except the ones that
had NUMA ifdef'ed out.

I have tested this patch only on an ES7000 with NUMA on and off (numa=off)
in a single (non-NUMA) and multi-cell (NUMA) configurations.

14 years ago[PATCH] pacct: none-delayed process accounting accumulation
KaiGai Kohei [Sun, 25 Jun 2006 12:49:26 +0000]
[PATCH] pacct: none-delayed process accounting accumulation

In current 2.6.17 implementation, signal_struct refered from task_struct is
used for per-process data structure.  The pacct facility also uses it as a
per-process data structure to store stime, utime, minflt, majflt.  But those
members are saved in __exit_signal().  It's too late.

For example, if some threads exits at same time, pacct facility has a
possibility to drop accountings for a part of those threads.  (see, the
following 'The results of original 2.6.17 kernel') I think accounting
information should be completely collected into the per-process data structure
before writing out an accounting record.

This patch fixes this matter.  Accumulation of stime, utime, minflt and majflt
are done before generating accounting record.

14 years ago[PATCH] pacct: avoidance to refer the last thread as a representation of the process
KaiGai Kohei [Sun, 25 Jun 2006 12:49:25 +0000]
[PATCH] pacct: avoidance to refer the last thread as a representation of the process

When pacct facility generate an 'ac_flag' field in accounting record, it
refers a task_struct of the thread which died last in the process.  But any
other task_structs are ignored.

Therefore, pacct facility drops ASU flag even if root-privilege operations are
used by any other threads except the last one.  In addition, AFORK flag is
always set when the thread of group-leader didn't die last, although this
process has called execve() after fork().

We have a same matter in ac_exitcode.  The recorded ac_exitcode is an exit
code of the last thread in the process.  There is a possibility this exitcode
is not the group leader's one.

KaiGai Kohei [Sun, 25 Jun 2006 12:49:24 +0000]
[PATCH] pacct: add pacct_struct to fix some pacct bugs.

The pacct facility need an i/o operation when an accounting record is
generated.  There is a possibility to wake OOM killer up.  If OOM killer is
activated, it kills some processes to make them release process memory
regions.

But acct_process() is called in the killed processes context before calling
exit_mm(), so those processes cannot release own memory.  In the results, any
processes stop in this point and it finally cause a system stall.

14 years ago[PATCH] Fix bounds check in vsnprintf, to allow for a 0 size and NULL buffer
Jeremy Fitzhardinge [Sun, 25 Jun 2006 12:49:17 +0000]
[PATCH] Fix bounds check in vsnprintf, to allow for a 0 size and NULL buffer

This change allows callers to use a 0-byte buffer and a NULL buffer pointer
with vsnprintf, so it can be used to determine how large the resulting
formatted string will be.

Previously the code effectively treated a size of 0 as a size of 4G (on
32-bit systems), with other checks preventing it from actually trying to
emit the string - but the terminal \0 would still be written, which would
crash if the buffer is NULL.

This change changes the boundary check so that 'end' points to the putative
location of the terminal '\0', which is only written if size > 0.

vsnprintf still allows the buffer size to be set very large, to allow
unbounded buffer sizes (to implement sprintf, etc).
