12 years agokbuild: strip generated symbols from *.ko
Jan Beulich [Tue, 16 Dec 2008 11:28:14 +0000]
kbuild: strip generated symbols from *.ko

This patch changes the way __crc_ symbols are being resolved from
using ld to do so to using the assembler, thus allowing these symbols
to be marked local (the linker creates then as global ones) and hence
allow stripping (for modules) or ignoring (for vmlinux) them. While at
this, also strip other generated symbols during module installation.

One potentially debatable point is the handling of the flags passeed
to gcc when translating the intermediate assembly file into an object:
passing $(c_flags) unchanged doesn't work as gcc passes --gdwarf2 to
gas whenever is sees any -g* option, even for -g0, and despite the
fact that the compiler would have already produced all necessary debug
info in the C->assembly translation phase. I took the approach of just
filtering out all -g* options, but an alternative to such negative
filtering might be to have a positive filter which might, in the ideal
case allow just all the -Wa,* options to pass through.

"Paul Smith" <psmith@gnu.org> reported that we would fail

upcoming version of make.

The error was:

      Makefile:442: *** mixed implicit and normal rules.  Stop.

The problem is that we did stuff like this:

config %config: ...

The solution was simple - the above was split into two with identical

Andreas Gruenbacher [Mon, 1 Dec 2008 22:21:03 +0000]
genksyms: allow to ignore symbol checksum changes

This adds an "override" keyword for use in *.symvers / *.symref files.
When a symbol is overridden, the symbol's old definition will be used for
computing checksums instead of the new one, preserving the previous
checksum.  (Genksyms will still warn about the change.)

This is meant to allow distributions to hide minor actual as well as fake
ABI changes.  (For example, when extra type information becomes available
because additional headers are included, this may change checksums even
though none of the types used have actully changed.)

This approach also allows to get rid of "#ifdef __GENKSYMS__" hacks in the
code, which are currently used in some vendor kernels to work around
checksum changes.

12 years agogenksyms: track symbol checksum changes
Andreas Gruenbacher [Mon, 1 Dec 2008 22:21:01 +0000]
genksyms: track symbol checksum changes

Sometimes it is preferable to avoid changes of exported symbol checksums
(to avoid breaking externally provided modules).  When a checksum change
occurs, it can be hard to figure out what caused this change: underlying
types may have changed, or additional type information may simply have
become available at the point where a symbol is exported.

Add a new --reference option to genksyms which allows it to report why
checksums change, based on the type information dumps it creates with the
--dump-types flag.  Genksyms will read in such a dump from a previous run,
and report which symbols have changed (and why).

The behavior can be controlled for an entire build as follows: If
KBUILD_SYMTYPES is set, genksyms uses --dump-types to produce *.symtypes
dump files.  If any *.symref files exist, those will be used as the
reference to check against.  If KBUILD_PRESERVE is set, checksum changes
will fail the build.

12 years agotags and cscope support really belongs in a shell script
Sam Ravnborg [Wed, 3 Dec 2008 21:24:13 +0000]
tags and cscope support really belongs in a shell script
as they do not benefit from the make functionality.

Moving the support to a shell script has several benefits:
- The readability of the code has increased a lot
- More people is able to extend the tags support
- We see less changes to the top-level Makefile

The shell script version includes improvements from:
Alexey Dobriyan <adobriyan@gmail.com> (jump to kconfig symbols)
Alexey Dobriyan <adobriyan@gmail.com> (drop ./ in paths)
Ian Campbell <ijc@hellion.org.uk> (simplified find algorithms)

This version has a few caveats:
=> It does not support ALLSOURCE_ARCHS
   - it is easy to add if it is really used
=> It assumes all archs have moved to arch/$ARCH/include
   - until that happens we have a few additional hits in the archs

kbuild: gen_init_cpio expands shell variables in file names

Modify gen_init_cpio so that lines that specify files can contain
what looks like a shell variable that's expanded during processing.

For example:

   file /sbin/kinit ${RFS_BASE}/usr/src/klibc/kinit/kinit 0755 0 0

given RFS_BASE is "/some/directory" in the environment

would be expanded to

   file /sbin/kinit /some/directory/usr/src/klibc/kinit/kinit 0755 0 0

If several environment variables appear in a line, they are all expanded
with processing happening from left to right.
Undefined variables expand to a null string.
Syntax errors stop processing, letting the existing error handling
show the user offending line.

This patch helps embedded folks who frequently create several
RFS directories and then switch between them as they're tuning
an initramfs.

This had the undesired side effect that gcc assumed "-Wall"
was a path to look for include files so this options was

vmscan: evict streaming IO first

Count the insertion of new pages in the statistics used to drive the
pageout scanning code.  This should help the kernel quickly evict
streaming file IO.

We count on the fact that new file pages start on the inactive file LRU
and new anonymous pages start on the active anon list.  This means
streaming file IO will increment the recent scanned file statistic, while
leaving the recent rotated file statistic alone, driving pageout scanning
to the file LRUs.

Pageout activity does its own list manipulation.

bdi: register sysfs bdi device only once per queue

Devices which share the same queue, like floppies and mtd devices, get
registered multiple times in the bdi interface, but bdi accounts only the
last registered device of the devices sharing one queue.

On remove, all earlier registered devices leak, stay around in sysfs, and
cause "duplicate filename" errors if the devices are re-created.

This prevents the creation of multiple bdi interfaces per queue, and the
bdi device will carry the dev_t name of the block device which is the
first one registered, of the pool of devices using the same queue.

12 years agoamd74xx: workaround unreliable AltStatus register for nVidia controllers
Bartlomiej Zolnierkiewicz [Tue, 2 Dec 2008 19:40:03 +0000]
amd74xx: workaround unreliable AltStatus register for nVidia controllers

It seems that on some nVidia controllers using AltStatus register
can be unreliable so default to Status register if the PCI device
is in Compatibility Mode.  In order to achieve this:

* Add ide_pci_is_in_compatibility_mode() inline helper to <linux/ide.h>.

* Add IDE_HFLAG_BROKEN_ALTSTATUS host flag and set it in amd74xx host
  driver for nVidia controllers in Compatibility Mode.

* Teach actual_try_to_identify() and drive_is_ready() about the new flag.

This fixes the regression caused by removal of CONFIG_IDEPCI_SHARE_IRQ
config option in 2.6.25 and using AltStatus register unconditionally when
available (kernel.org bugs #11659 and #10216).

[ Moreover for CONFIG_IDEPCI_SHARE_IRQ=y (which is what most people
  and distributions use) it never worked correctly. ]

Thanks to Remy LABENE and Lars Winterfeld for help with debugging the problem.

i82875p_edac: fix module remove

Fix module removal bugs of i82875p_edac.  Also i82975x_edac code seems to
have the same module removal bugs as in i82875p_edac.

The problems were:

1. In module removal i82875p_remove_one() is never called.

   Variable i82875p_registered is newer changed from 1, which
   guarantees i82875p_remove_one() is not called (and even if it were
   called, it would be called in wrong order).

   As a result, the edac_mc workque is not stopped and keeps probing.
   If kernel debugging options are not enabled, user may not notice
   anything going wrong.

   if debugging options are enabled and I do "rmmod i82875p_edac", I

      edac debug: edac_pci_workq_function() checking
      BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at f882d16f

       [<c02367ce>] ? kthread+0x0/0x61
       [<c0204587>] ? kernel_thread_helper+0x7/0x10

   Fix for this is to get rid of needles variable i82875p_registered
   altogether and run i82875p_remove_one() *before*

2. edac_mc_del_mc() uses mci after freeing mci

   edac_mc_del_mc() calls calls edac_remove_sysfs_mci_device().  The
   kobject refcount of mci drops to 0 and mci is freed.  After this
   mci is accessed via debug print and i82875p_remove_one() still
   uses mci->pvt and tries to free mci again with edac_mc_free().

   The fix for this is add kobject_get(&mci->edac_mci_kobj) after
   edac_mc_alloc(). Then the mci is still available after returning
   from edac_mc_del_mc() with refcount 1, and mci->pvt is still
   available. When i82875p_remove_one() finally calls edac_mc_free(),
   this will cause kobject_put() and mci is released properly.

i82875p_edac: fix overflow device resource setup

When I do "modprobe i82875p_edac" on my Asus P4C800 MB on kernels 2.6.26
or later, the module load fails due to BAR 0 collision.  On 2.6.25 the
module loads just fine.

The overflow device on the MB seems to be hidden and its resources are not
allocated at normal PCI bus init.  Log shows the missing resource problem:

  EDAC DEBUG: i82875p_probe1()
  PCI: 0000:00:06.0 reg 10 32bit mmio: [fecf0000, fecf0fff]

[0xfecf0000-0xfecf0fff] collisions
  EDAC i82875p: i82875p_setup_overfl_dev(): Failed to enable overflow

The patch below fixes this by calling pci_bus_assign_resources() after
the overflow device is revealed and added to the bus. With this patch
I am again able to load and use the module.

fbdev: fix FB console blanking

The commit aef7db4bd5a3b6068dfa05919a3d685199eed116 fixed the problem with
recursive locking in fb blanking code if blank is caused by user setting
the /sys/class/graphics/fb*/blank.  However this broke the fbcon timeout

If you use a driver that defines ->fb_blank operation and at the same time
that driver relies on other driver (e.g.  backlight or lcd class) to blank
the screen, when the fbcon times out and tries to blank the fb, it will
call only fb driver blanker and won't notify the other driver.  Thus FB
output is disabled, but the screen isn't blanked.

Restore fbcon blanking and at the same time apply the proper fix for the
above problem: if fbcon_blank is called with FBINFO_FLAG_USEREVENT, we are
already called through notification from fb_blank, thus we don't have to
blank the fb again.

12 years agoepoll: introduce resource usage limits
Davide Libenzi [Mon, 1 Dec 2008 21:13:55 +0000]
epoll: introduce resource usage limits

It has been thought that the per-user file descriptors limit would also
limit the resources that a normal user can request via the epoll
interface.  Vegard Nossum reported a very simple program (a modified
version attached) that can make a normal user to request a pretty large
amount of kernel memory, well within the its maximum number of fds.  To
solve such problem, default limits are now imposed, and /proc based
configuration has been introduced.  A new directory has been created,
named /proc/sys/fs/epoll/ and inside there, there are two configuration

  max_user_instances = Maximum number of devices - per user

  max_user_watches   = Maximum number of "watched" fds - per user

The current default for "max_user_watches" limits the memory used by epoll
to store "watches", to 1/32 of the amount of the low RAM.  As example, a
256MB 32bit machine, will have "max_user_watches" set to roughly 90000.
That should be enough to not break existing heavy epoll users.  The
default value for "max_user_instances" is set to 128, that should be
enough too.

This also changes the userspace, because a new error code can now come out
from EPOLL_CTL_ADD (-ENOSPC).  The EMFILE from epoll_create() was already
listed, so that should be ok.

12 years agomemcg: memory hotplug fix for notifier callback
KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Mon, 1 Dec 2008 21:13:48 +0000]
memcg: memory hotplug fix for notifier callback

Fixes for memcg/memory hotplug.

While memory hotplug allocate/free memmap, page_cgroup doesn't free
page_cgroup at OFFLINE when page_cgroup is allocated via bootomem.
(Because freeing bootmem requires special care.)

Then, if page_cgroup is allocated by bootmem and memmap is freed/allocated
by memory hotplug, page_cgroup->page == page is no longer true.

But current MEM_ONLINE handler doesn't check it and update
page_cgroup->page if it's not necessary to allocate page_cgroup.  (This
was not found because memmap is not freed if SPARSEMEM_VMEMMAP is y.)

And I noticed that MEM_ONLINE can be called against "part of section".
So, freeing page_cgroup at CANCEL_ONLINE will cause trouble.  (freeing
used page_cgroup) Don't rollback at CANCEL.

One more, current memory hotplug notifier is stopped by slub because it
sets NOTIFY_STOP_MASK to return vaule.  So, page_cgroup's callback never
be called.  (low priority than slub now.)

I think this slub's behavior is not intentional(BUG). and fixes it.

Another way to be considered about page_cgroup allocation:
  - free page_cgroup at OFFLINE even if it's from bootmem
    and remove specieal handler. But it requires more changes.

12 years agomm: vmalloc fix lazy unmapping cache aliasing
Nick Piggin [Mon, 1 Dec 2008 21:13:47 +0000]
mm: vmalloc fix lazy unmapping cache aliasing

Jim Radford has reported that the vmap subsystem rewrite was sometimes
causing his VIVT ARM system to behave strangely (seemed like going into
infinite loops trying to fault in pages to userspace).

We determined that the problem was most likely due to a cache aliasing
issue.  flush_cache_vunmap was only being called at the moment the page
tables were to be taken down, however with lazy unmapping, this can happen
after the page has subsequently been freed and allocated for something
else.  The dangling alias may still have dirty data attached to it.

The fix for this problem is to do the cache flushing when the caller has
called vunmap -- it would be a bug for them to write anything else to the
mapping at that point.

That appeared to solve Jim's problems.

locking schema. However, a backport macro was kept.

This patch removes the macro, since it is not needed for the module
compilation against upstream.

libata: blacklist Seagate drives which time out FLUSH_CACHE when used with NCQ

Some recent Seagate harddrives have firmware bug which causes FLUSH
CACHE to timeout under certain circumstances if NCQ is being used.
This can be worked around by disabling NCQ and fixed by updating the
firmware.  Implement ATA_HORKAGE_FIRMWARE_UPDATE and blacklist these

The wiki page has been updated to contain information on this issue.

ata_piix: add borked Tecra M4 to broken suspend list

Tecra M4 sometimes forget what it is and reports bogus data via DMI
which makes the machine evade broken suspend matching and thus fail
suspend/resume.  This patch updates piix_broken_suspend() such that it
can match such case.  As the borked DMI data is a bit generic,
matching many entries to make the match more specific is necessary.
As the usual DMI matching is limited to four entries, this patch uses
hard coded manual matching.

This is reported by Alexandru Romanescu.

Jack Morgenstein [Mon, 1 Dec 2008 18:09:37 +0000]
IB/mlx4: Fix MTT leakage in resize CQ

When resizing a CQ, MTTs associated with the old CQE buffer were not
freed.  As a result, if any app used resize CQ repeatedly, all MTTs
were eventually exhausted, which led to all memory registration
operations failing until the driver is reloaded.

Once the RESIZE_CQ command returns successfully from FW, FW no longer
accesses the old CQ buffer, so it is safe to deallocate the MTT
entries used by the old CQ buffer.

Finally, if the RESIZE_CQ command fails, the MTTs allocated for the
new CQEs buffer also need to be de-allocated.

This fixes <https://bugs.openfabrics.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1416>.

scsi_eh_try_stu() was still using the timeout parameter in the device
which is now not set (i.e. zero filled) meaning that it waited no time
at all for the start unit command to complete (leading the routine to
conclude failure every time).  This lead to a 2.6.27 regression:


Where firewire devices that were non spec compliant wouldn't spin up.

Fix this by using the block queue timeout value instead.
