12 years agoautofs4: add miscellaneous device for ioctls
Ian Kent [Thu, 16 Oct 2008 05:02:54 +0000]
autofs4: add miscellaneous device for ioctls

Add a miscellaneous device to the autofs4 module for routing ioctls.  This
provides the ability to obtain an ioctl file handle for an autofs mount
point that is possibly covered by another mount.

The actual problem with autofs is that it can't reconnect to existing
mounts.  Immediately one things of just adding the ability to remount
autofs file systems would solve it, but alas, that can't work.  This is
because autofs direct mounts and the implementation of "on demand mount
and expire" of nested mount trees have the file system mounted on top of
the mount trigger dentry.

To resolve this a miscellaneous device node for routing ioctl commands to
these mount points has been implemented in the autofs4 kernel module and a
library added to autofs.  This provides the ability to open a file
descriptor for these over mounted autofs mount points.

Please refer to Documentation/filesystems/autofs4-mount-control.txt for a
discussion of the problem, implementation alternatives considered and a
description of the interface.

i2o: Fix 32/64bit DMA locking

The I2O ioctls assume 32bits.  In itself that is fine as they are old
cards and nobody uses 64bit.  However on LKML it was noted this
assumption is also made for allocated memory and is unsafe on 64bit
systems.

Fixing this is a mess.  It turns out there is tons of crap buried in a
header file that does racy 32/64bit filtering on the masks.

So we:
- Verify all callers of the racy code can sleep (i2o_dma_[re]alloc)
- Move the code into a new i2o/memory.c file
- Remove the gfp_mask argument so nobody can try and misuse the function
- Wrap a mutex around the problem area (a single mutex is easy to do and
  none of this is performance relevant)
- Switch the remaining problem kmalloc holdout to use i2o_dma_alloc

Make the SPI external GPIO expander drivers register themselves at
subsys_initcall() time when they're statically linked, and make the SPI
core do its driver model initialization earlier so that's safe.

SOC-integrated GPIOs are available starting very early -- often before
initcalls start to run, or earily in arch_initcall() at latest -- so this
improves consistency, letting more subsystems rely on GPIOs being usable

Allow recursion in binfmt_script and binfmt_misc

binfmt_script and binfmt_misc disallow recursion to avoid stack overflow
using sh_bang and misc_bang.  It causes problem in some cases:

$ chmod +x /tmp/t*
$ /tmp/t2
zsh: exec format error: /tmp/t2

Similar problem with binfmt_misc.

This patch introduces field 'recursion_depth' into struct linux_binprm to
track recursion level in binfmt_misc and binfmt_script.  If recursion
level more then BINPRM_MAX_RECURSION it generates -ENOEXEC.

12 years agocompat: move cp_compat_stat to common code
Christoph Hellwig [Thu, 16 Oct 2008 05:02:05 +0000]
compat: move cp_compat_stat to common code

struct stat / compat_stat is the same on all architectures, so
cp_compat_stat should be, too.

Turns out it is, except that various architectures have slightly and some
high2lowuid/high2lowgid or the direct assignment instead of the
SET_UID/SET_GID that expands to the correct one anyway.

12 years agoutsname: completely overwrite prior information
Vegard Nossum [Thu, 16 Oct 2008 05:01:51 +0000]
utsname: completely overwrite prior information

On sethostname() and setdomainname(), previous information may be retained
if it was longer than than the new hostname/domainname.

This can be demonstrated trivially by calling sethostname() first with a
long name, then with a short name, and then calling uname() to retrieve
the full buffer that contains the hostname (and possibly parts of the old
hostname), one just has to look past the terminating zero.

I don't know if we should really care that much (hence the RFC); the only
scenarios I can possibly think of is administrator putting something
sensitive in the hostname (or domain name) by accident, and changing it
back will not undo the mistake entirely, though it's not like we can
recover gracefully from "rm -rf /" either...  The other scenario is
namespaces (CLONE_NEWUTS) where some information may be unintentionally
"inherited" from the previous namespace (a program wants to hide the
original name and does clone + sethostname, but some information is still
left).

I think the patch may be defended on grounds of the principle of least
surprise.  But I am not adamant :-)

(I guess the question now is whether userspace should be able to
write embedded NULs into the buffer or not...)

At least the observation has been made and the patch has been presented.

profiling: dynamically enable readprofile at runtime

Way too often, I have a machine that exhibits some kind of crappy
behavior.  The CPU looks wedged in the kernel or it is spending way too
much system time and I wonder what is responsible.

I try to run readprofile.  But, of course, Ubuntu doesn't enable it by
default.  Dang!

The reason we boot-time enable it is that it takes a big bufffer that we
generally can only bootmem alloc.  But, does it hurt to at least try and
runtime-alloc it?

To use:
echo 2 > /sys/kernel/profile

Then run readprofile like normal.

This should fix the compile issue with allmodconfig.  I've compile-tested
on a bunch more configs now including a few more architectures.

12 years agorlimit: permit setting RLIMIT_NOFILE to RLIM_INFINITY
Adam Tkac [Thu, 16 Oct 2008 05:01:45 +0000]
rlimit: permit setting RLIMIT_NOFILE to RLIM_INFINITY

When a process wants to set the limit of open files to RLIM_INFINITY it
gets EPERM even if it has CAP_SYS_RESOURCE capability.

For example, BIND does:

...
#elif defined(NR_OPEN) && defined(__linux__)
        /*
         * Some Linux kernels don't accept RLIM_INFINIT; the maximum
         * possible value is the NR_OPEN defined in linux/fs.h.
         */
        if (resource == isc_resource_openfiles && rlim_value == RLIM_INFINITY) {
                rl.rlim_cur = rl.rlim_max = NR_OPEN;
                unixresult = setrlimit(unixresource, &rl);
                if (unixresult == 0)
                        return (ISC_R_SUCCESS);
        }
#elif ...

If we allow setting RLIMIT_NOFILE to RLIM_INFINITY we increase portability
- you don't have to check if OS is linux and then use different schema for
limits.

The spec says "Specifying RLIM_INFINITY as any resource limit value on a
successful call to setrlimit() shall inhibit enforcement of that resource
limit." and we're presently not doing that.

It's somewhat unlikely that it happens, but right now a race window
between interrupts or machine checks or oopses could corrupt the tainted
bitmap because it is modified in a non atomic fashion.

Convert the taint variable to an unsigned long and use only atomic bit
operations on it.

Unfortunately this means the intvec sysctl functions cannot be used on it
anymore.

It turned out the taint sysctl handler could actually be simplified a bit
(since it only increases capabilities) so this patch actually removes

12 years agoinitramfs: add option to preserve mtime from initramfs cpio images
Nye Liu [Thu, 16 Oct 2008 05:01:40 +0000]
initramfs: add option to preserve mtime from initramfs cpio images

When unpacking the cpio into the initramfs, mtimes are not preserved by
default.  This patch adds an INITRAMFS_PRESERVE_MTIME option that allows
mtimes stored in the cpio image to be used when constructing the
initramfs.

For embedded applications that run exclusively out of the initramfs, this
is invaluable:

When building embedded application initramfs images, its nice to know when
the files were actually created during the build process - that makes it
easier to see what files were modified when so we can compare the files
that are being used on the image with the files used during the build
process.  This might help (for example) to determine if the target system
has all the updated files you expect to see w/o having to check MD5s etc.

In our environment, the whole system runs off the initramfs partition, and
seeing the modified times of the shared libraries (for example) helps us
find bugs that may have been introduced by the build system incorrectly
propogating outdated shared libraries into the image.

Similarly, many of the initializion/configuration files in /etc might be
dynamically built by the build system, and knowing when they were modified
helps us sanity check whether the target system has the "latest" files
etc.

Finally, we might use last modified times to determine whether a hot fix
should be applied or not to the running ramfs.

12 years agowait: kill is_sync_wait()
Tejun Heo [Thu, 16 Oct 2008 05:01:38 +0000]
wait: kill is_sync_wait()

is_sync_wait() is used to distinguish between sync and async waits.
Basically sync waits are the ones initialized with init_waitqueue_entry()
and async ones with init_waitqueue_func_entry().  The sync/async
distinction is used only in prepare_to_wait[_exclusive]() and its only
function is to skip setting the current task state if the wait is async.
This has a few problems.

* No one uses it.  None of func_entry users use prepare_to_wait()
  functions, so the code path never gets executed.

* The distinction is bogus.  Maybe back when func_entry is used only
  by aio but it's now also used by epoll and in future possibly by 9p
  and poll/select.

* Taking @state as argument and ignoring it silenly depending on how
  @wait is initialized is just a bad error-prone API.

* It prevents func_entry waits from using wait->private for no good
  reason.

This patch kills is_sync_wait() and the associated code paths from
prepare_to_wait[_exclusive]().  As there was no user of these code paths,
this patch doesn't cause any behavior difference.

12 years agovsprintf: use new vsprintf symbolic function pointer format
Bjorn Helgaas [Thu, 16 Oct 2008 05:01:35 +0000]
vsprintf: use new vsprintf symbolic function pointer format

Use the '%pF' format to get rid of an "#ifdef DEBUG" and make some printks
atomic.

This removes the last in-tree uses of print_fn_descriptor_symbol().  I
marked print_fn_descriptor_symbol() deprecated and scheduled it for
removal next year to give time for out-of-tree modules to be updated.

parisc's print_fn_descriptor_symbol() is currently broken there (it needs
to dereference the function pointer similar to ia64 and power).  This
patch shouldn't make anything worse, but it means we need to fix
dereference_function_descriptor() instead of print_fn_descriptor_symbol()
to get meaningful initcall_debug output.

12 years agoidentify_ramdisk_image(): correct typo about return value in comment
Geert Uytterhoeven [Thu, 16 Oct 2008 05:01:32 +0000]
identify_ramdisk_image(): correct typo about return value in comment

identify_ramdisk_image() returns 0 (not -1) if a gzipped ramdisk is found:

if (buf[0] == 037 && ((buf[1] == 0213) || (buf[1] == 0236))) {
printk(KERN_NOTICE
       "RAMDISK: Compressed image found at block %d\n",
       start_block);
nblocks = 0;
^^^^^^^^^^^
goto done;
}

...

done:
sys_lseek(fd, start_block * BLOCK_SIZE, 0);
kfree(buf);
return nblocks;
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Hence correct the typo in the comment, which has existed since the
addition of compressed ramdisk support in 1.3.48.

drivers/misc: Use DIV_ROUND_UP

The kernel.h macro DIV_ROUND_UP performs the computation (((n) + (d) - 1) /
