[PATCH] inotify: check for NULL inode in inotify_d_instantiate

The spufs file system creates files in a directory before instantiating the

inotify_d_instantiate since c32ccd87bfd1414b0aabfcd8dbc7539ad23bcbaa.

I'd like to keep this behavior since it means that the user will not have
access to files in the directory before I know that I succeed in creating
everything in it.  This patch adds a simple check for the inode to keep

[PATCH] module support: record in vermagic ability to unload a module

An UML user reported (against 2.6.13.3/UML) he got kernel Oopses when
trying to rmmod (on a kernel with module unloading enabled) a module
compiled with module unloading disabled.  As crashing is a very correct
thing to do in that case, a solution is altering the vermagic string to
include this too.

Possibly, however, the code should not crash in this case, even if the
module didn't support unloading - it should simply abort the module
removal.  In this case, fixing that bug would be a better solution.  I've
not investigated though.

[PATCH] Keys: Improve usage of memory barriers and remove IRQ disablement

Remove an unnecessary memory barrier (implicit in rcu_dereference()) from
install_session_keyring().

install_session_keyring() is also rearranged a little to make it slightly
more efficient.

As install_*_keyring() may schedule (in synchronize_rcu() or
keyring_alloc()), they may not be entered with interrupts disabled - and so
there's no point saving the interrupt disablement state over the critical
section.

exec_keys() will also be invoked with interrupts enabled, and so that doesn't
need to save the interrupt state either.

memory barrier effects correctly following Nick Piggin's comments.

It makes the point that any atomic op that both modifies some state in

both sides.

Remove duplicate call to idr_remove() in ptmx_open.

Error during open can result in call to release_dev() followed by call to
idr_remove().  release_dev already calls idr_remove so the second call can
cause a stack dump in idr_remove()->sub_remove() flagging an attempt to
release an already released entry.

I reproduces this on a machine with a misconfigured X server (attempting to
restart multiple times rapidly) getting the same error as the 1st link
below.

This also seems to be related to:

http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=selinux&m=110596994916785&w=2

The stack dump can occur on close (as well as open) as shown
in the 1st instance above, possible from something like:

process A - open (index=0), open fail to out1,
  release_dev calls idr_remove (index 0), down(sem) sleeps
process B - open (index=0), open OK (idr allocated)
process A - wake and call idr_remove on index 0
...
process B - close, release_dev, stack dump on idr_remove (index=0)
  because entry already removed

The only record we have of the real-time age of a process, regardless of

real-time age of the process are fooled, for example the process accounting
record when the process finally dies.  This change makes the oldest
start_time stick around with the process after a non-leader exec.  This way
the association between PID and start_time is kept constant, which seems

[PATCH] make tty_insert_flip_string_flags() a non gpl export

We changed the wrong symbol.  It's tty_insert_flip_string_flags() which is
called from the previously-non-GPL'ed now-inlined tty_insert_flip_char().

Fix that up, and uninline tty_schedule_flip() while we're there.

Andrew Morton [Tue, 11 Apr 2006 05:53:58 +0000]
[PATCH] timer initialisation fix

We need the boot CPU's tvec_bases[] entry to be initialised super-early in
boot, for early_serial_setup().  That runs within setup_arch(), before even
per-cpu areas are initialised.

The patch changes tvec_bases to use compile-time initialisation, and adds a
separate array `tvec_base_done' to keep track of which CPU has had its
tvec_bases[] entry initialised (because we can no longer use the zeroness of
that tvec_bases[] entry to determine whether it has been initialised).

[PATCH] No arch-specific strpbrk implementations

While cleaning up parisc_ksyms.c earlier, I noticed that strpbrk wasn't
being exported from lib/string.c.  Investigating further, I noticed a
changeset that removed its export and added it to _ksyms.c on a few more
architectures.  The justification was that "other arches do it."

I think this is wrong, since no architecture currently defines
__HAVE_ARCH_STRPBRK, there's no reason for any of them to be exporting it
themselves.  Therefore, consolidate the export to lib/string.c.

15 years ago[PATCH] Configurable NODES_SHIFT
Yasunori Goto [Tue, 11 Apr 2006 05:53:53 +0000]
[PATCH] Configurable NODES_SHIFT

Current implementations define NODES_SHIFT in include/asm-xxx/numnodes.h for
each arch.  Its definition is sometimes configurable.  Indeed, ia64 defines 5
NODES_SHIFT values in the current git tree.  But it looks a bit messy.

SGI-SN2(ia64) system requires 1024 nodes, and the number of nodes already has
been changeable by config.  Suitable node's number may be changed in the
future even if it is other architecture.  So, I wrote configurable node's
number.

This patch set defines just default value for each arch which needs multi
nodes except ia64.  But, it is easy to change to configurable if necessary.

On ia64 the number of nodes can be already configured in generic ia64 and SN2
config.  But, NODES_SHIFT is defined for DIG64 and HP'S machine too.  So, I
changed it so that all platforms can be configured via CONFIG_NODES_SHIFT.  It
would be simpler.

It works, the only problem is a bit of bogus warnings for system headers, but
they're not too many.

15 years ago[PATCH] alpha: SMP boot fixes
Brian Uhrain says [Tue, 11 Apr 2006 05:53:16 +0000]
[PATCH] alpha: SMP boot fixes

I've encountered two problems with 2.6.16 and newer kernels on my API CS20
(dual 833MHz Alpha 21264b processors).  The first is the kernel OOPSing
because of a NULL pointer dereference while trying to populate SysFS with the
CPU information.  The other is that only one processor was being brought up.
I've included a small Alpha-specific patch that fixes both problems.

The first problem was caused by the CPUs never being properly registered using
register_cpu(), the way it's done on other architectures.

The second problem has to do with the removal of hwrpb_cpu_present_mask in
arch/alpha/kernel/smp.c.  In setup_smp() in the 2.6.15 kernel sources,
hwrpb_cpu_present_mask has a bit set for each processor that is probed, and
afterwards cpu_present_mask is set to the cpumask for the boot CPU.  In the
same function of the same file in the 2.6.16 sources, instead of
hwrpb_cpu_present_mask being set, cpu_possible_map is updated for each probed
CPU.  cpu_present_mask is still set to the cpumask of the boot CPU afterwards.
 The problem lies in include/asm-alpha/smp.h, where cpu_possible_map is
#define'd to be cpu_present_mask.

Cleanups from: Ivan Kokshaysky <ink@jurassic.park.msu.ru>

 - cpu_present_mask and cpu_possible_map are essentially the same thing
   on alpha, as it doesn't support CPU hotplug;
 - allocate "struct cpu" only for present CPUs, like sparc64 does.
   Static array of "struct cpu" is just a waste of memory.

Ashok Raj [Tue, 11 Apr 2006 05:53:07 +0000]
[PATCH] swsusp: don't require bigsmp

Switching to automatic bigsmp causes a misleading error message, that more
then 8 cpus are detected, and user needs to select either X86_GENERICARCH
or X86_BIGSMP to handle.

Reason is we switched to bigsmp to avoid IP race when new cpu is comming
up.  [bigsmp is nothing but using physical flat mode that can work for 1 ..
 255 cpus] [default is X86_PC, that uses logical flat mode up to 8 CPUs
max] Current x86_64 code uses bigsmp as default when hotplug is enabled.

It would be preferable to make bigsmp as default, and work the dependencies
of other related code like SMP_SUSPEND, and some related to memory hotplug
code for i386.

Current logical flat mode doesnt use shortcuts that cause the race by using
the send_IPI_mask() instead of shortcuts when HOTPLUG_CPU is enabled.

In the meantime this patch is the path of lease resistance.

We will switch to bigsmp default sometime soon, when we get to work it again.

[PATCH] frv: define MMU mode specific syscalls as 'cond_syscall' and clean up unneeded macros

For some architectures, a few syscalls are not linked in noMMU mode.  In

'cond_syscall'.  For example, ARM architecture selectively links sys_mlock
by the mode configuration.

In case of FRV, it has been managed by #ifdef CONFIG_MMU macro in
arch/frv/kernel/entry.S.  However these conditional macros are just
duplicates if they were defined as cond_syscall.  Compilation test is done

15 years ago[PATCH] overcommit: add calculate_totalreserve_pages()
Hideo AOKI [Tue, 11 Apr 2006 05:52:59 +0000]
[PATCH] overcommit: add calculate_totalreserve_pages()

These patches are an enhancement of OVERCOMMIT_GUESS algorithm in
__vm_enough_memory().

- why the kernel needed patching

  When the kernel can't allocate anonymous pages in practice, currnet
  OVERCOMMIT_GUESS could return success. This implementation might be
  the cause of oom kill in memory pressure situation.

  If the Linux runs with page reservation features like
  /proc/sys/vm/lowmem_reserve_ratio and without swap region, I think
  the oom kill occurs easily.

- the overall design approach in the patch

  When the OVERCOMMET_GUESS algorithm calculates number of free pages,
  the reserved free pages are regarded as non-free pages.

  This change helps to avoid the pitfall that the number of free pages
  become less than the number which the kernel tries to keep free.

- testing results

  I tested the patches using my test kernel module.

  If the patches aren't applied to the kernel, __vm_enough_memory()
  returns success in the situation but autual page allocation is
  failed.

  On the other hand, if the patches are applied to the kernel, memory
  allocation failure is avoided since __vm_enough_memory() returns
  failure in the situation.

  I checked that on i386 SMP 16GB memory machine. I haven't tested on
  nommu environment currently.

This patch adds totalreserve_pages for __vm_enough_memory().

Calculate_totalreserve_pages() checks maximum lowmem_reserve pages and
pages_high in each zone. Finally, the function stores the sum of each
zone to totalreserve_pages.

The totalreserve_pages is calculated when the VM is initilized.
And the variable is updated when /proc/sys/vm/lowmem_reserve_raito
or /proc/sys/vm/min_free_kbytes are changed.

The code checks for newbrk with oldbrk which are page aligned before making
a check for the memory limit set of data segment.  If the memory limit is
not page aligned in that case it bypasses the test for the limit if the
memory allocation is still for the same page.

[PATCH] nommu: use compound page in slab allocator

The earlier patch to consolidate mmu and nommu page allocation and
refcounting by using compound pages for nommu allocations had a bug:
kmalloc slabs who's pages were initially allocated by a non-__GFP_COMP
allocator could be passed into mm/nommu.c kmalloc allocations which really
wanted __GFP_COMP underlying pages.  Fix that by having nommu pass
__GFP_COMP to all higher order slab allocations.

Add a statistics counter which is incremented everytime the alien cache
overflows.  alien_cache limit is hardcoded to 12 right now.  We can use
this statistics to tune alien cache if needed in the future.
