Fix and clean top .gitignore

Removed vmlinux* rule because it matches too many useful files, replacing
it with rules matching filetype by filename (e.g. *.gz). Also unignored
.mailmap from the top directory. Added a comment telling the user how to
check for tracked files being ignored.

[GFS2] fix gfs2 block allocation (cleaned up)

This patch fixes bz 450641.

This patch changes the computation for zero_metapath_length(), which it
renames to metapath_branch_start(). When you are extending the metadata
tree, The indirect blocks that point to the new data block must either
diverge from the existing tree either at the inode, or at the first
indirect block. They can diverge at the first indirect block because the
inode has room for 483 pointers while the indirect blocks have room for
509 pointers, so when the tree is grown, there is some free space in the
first indirect block. What metapath_branch_start() now computes is the
height where the first indirect block for the new data block is located.
It can either be 1 (if the indirect block diverges from the inode) or 2
(if it diverges from the first indirect block).

KVM: ioapic: fix lost interrupt when changing a device's irq

The ioapic acknowledge path translates interrupt vectors to irqs.  It
currently uses a first match algorithm, stopping when it finds the first
redirection table entry containing the vector.  That fails however if the
guest changes the irq to a different line, leaving the old redirection table
entry in place (though masked).  Result is interrupts not making it to the
guest.

Fix by always scanning the entire redirection table.

Avi Kivity [Thu, 12 Jun 2008 13:54:41 +0000]
KVM: MMU: Fix oops on guest userspace access to guest pagetable

KVM has a heuristic to unshadow guest pagetables when userspace accesses
them, on the assumption that most guests do not allow userspace to access
pagetables directly. Unfortunately, in addition to unshadowing the pagetables,
it also oopses.

This never triggers on ordinary guests since sane OSes will clear the
pagetables before assigning them to userspace, which will trigger the flood
heuristic, unshadowing the pagetables before the first userspace access. One
particular guest, though (Xenner) will run the kernel in userspace, triggering
the oops.  Since the heuristic is incorrect in this case, we can simply
remove it.

KVM: MMU: large page update_pte issue with non-PAE 32-bit guests (resend)

kvm_mmu_pte_write() does not handle 32-bit non-PAE large page backed
guests properly. It will instantiate two 2MB sptes pointing to the same

Instead of duplicating code to handle this, disallow directory level

emulating one guest 4MB pte can be correctly created by the page fault

13 years agomm: fix race in COW logic
Nick Piggin [Mon, 23 Jun 2008 12:30:30 +0000]
mm: fix race in COW logic

There is a race in the COW logic.  It contains a shortcut to avoid the
COW and reuse the page if we have the sole reference on the page,
however it is possible to have two racing do_wp_page()ers with one
causing the other to mistakenly believe it is safe to take the shortcut
when it is not.  This could lead to data corruption.

Process 1 and process2 each have a wp pte of the same anon page (ie.
one forked the other).  The page's mapcount is 2.  Then they both
attempt to write to it around the same time...

  proc1 proc2 thr1 proc2 thr2
  CPU0 CPU1 CPU3
  do_wp_page() do_wp_page()
 trylock_page()
  can_share_swap_page()
   load page mapcount (==2)
  reuse = 0
 pte unlock
 copy page to new_page
 pte lock
 page_remove_rmap(page);
   trylock_page()
    can_share_swap_page()
     load page mapcount (==1)
    reuse = 1
   ptep_set_access_flags (allow W)

  write private key into page
read from page
ptep_clear_flush()
set_pte_at(pte of new_page)

Fix this by moving the page_remove_rmap of the old page after the pte
clear and flush.  Potentially the entire branch could be moved down
here, but in order to stay consistent, I won't (should probably move all
the *_mm_counter stuff with one patch).

   /build/mts/release/bora-93057/bora/vmx/main/vmmonPosix.c:774"

and the reason seems to be that there's an old bug in how we handle do
FOLL_ANON on VM_SHARED areas in get_user_pages(), but since it only
triggered if the whole page table was missing, nobody had apparently hit
it before.

The recent changes to 'follow_page()' made the FOLL_ANON logic trigger
not just for whole missing page tables, but for individual pages as
well, and exposed this problem.

This fixes it by making the test for when FOLL_ANON is used more
careful, and also makes the code easier to read and understand by moving
the logic to a separate inline function.

Michael Kerrisk [Tue, 10 Jun 2008 04:16:09 +0000]
[patch for 2.6.26 4/4] vfs: utimensat(): fix write access check for futimens()

The POSIX.1 draft spec for futimens()/utimensat() says:

        Only a process with the effective user ID equal to the
        user ID of the file, *or with write access to the file*,
        or with appropriate privileges may use futimens() or
        utimensat() with a null pointer as the times argument
        or with both tv_nsec fields set to the special value
        UTIME_NOW.

The important piece here is "with write access to the file", and
this matters for futimens(), which deals with an argument that
is a file descriptor referring to the file whose timestamps are
being updated,  The standard is saying that the "writability"
check is based on the file permissions, not the access mode with
which the file is opened.  (This behavior is consistent with the
semantics of FreeBSD's futimes().)  However, Linux is currently
doing the latter -- futimens(fd, times) is a library
function implemented as

       utimensat(fd, NULL, times, 0)

and within the utimensat() implementation we have the code:

                f = fget(dfd);  // dfd is 'fd'
                ...
                if (f) {
                        if (!(f->f_mode & FMODE_WRITE))
                                goto mnt_drop_write_and_out;

The check should instead be based on the file permissions.

Thanks to Miklos for pointing out how to do this check.
Miklos also pointed out a simplification that could be
made to my first version of this patch, since the checks
for the pathname and file descriptor cases can now be
conflated.

Michael Kerrisk [Tue, 10 Jun 2008 04:16:08 +0000]
[patch for 2.6.26 3/4] vfs: utimensat(): fix error checking for {UTIME_NOW,UTIME_OMIT} case

The POSIX.1 draft spec for utimensat() says:

    Only a process with the effective user ID equal to the
    user ID of the file or with appropriate privileges may use
    futimens() or utimensat() with a non-null times argument
    that does not have both tv_nsec fields set to UTIME_NOW
    and does not have both tv_nsec fields set to UTIME_OMIT.

If this condition is violated, then the error EPERM should result.
However, the current implementation does not generate EPERM if
one tv_nsec field is UTIME_NOW while the other is UTIME_OMIT.
It should give this error for that case.

This patch:

a) Repairs that problem.
b) Removes the now unneeded nsec_special() helper function.
c) Adds some comments to explain the checks that are being
   performed.

Thanks to Miklos, who provided comments on the previous iteration
of this patch.  As a result, this version is a little simpler and
and its logic is better structured.

Miklos suggested an alternative idea, migrating the
is_owner_or_cap() checks into fs/attr.c:inode_change_ok() via
the use of an ATTR_OWNER_CHECK flag.  Maybe we could do that
later, but for now I've gone with this version, which is
IMO simpler, and can be more easily read as being correct.

Michael Kerrisk [Tue, 10 Jun 2008 04:16:05 +0000]
[patch for 2.6.26 1/4] vfs: utimensat(): ignore tv_sec if tv_nsec == UTIME_OMIT or UTIME_NOW

The POSIX.1 draft spec for utimensat() says that if a times[n].tv_nsec
field is UTIME_OMIT or UTIME_NOW, then the value in the corresponding
tv_sec field is ignored.  See the last sentence of this para, from
the spec:

    If the tv_nsec field of a timespec structure has
    the special value UTIME_NOW, the file's relevant
    timestamp shall be set to the greatest value
    supported by the file system that is not greater than
    the current time. If the tv_nsec field has the
    special value UTIME_OMIT, the file's relevant
    timestamp shall not be changed. In either case,
    the tv_sec field shall be ignored.

However the current Linux implementation requires the tv_sec value to be
zero (or the EINVAL error results). This requirement should be removed.

Michael Kerrisk [Tue, 10 Jun 2008 04:16:07 +0000]
[patch for 2.6.26 2/4] vfs: utimensat(): be consistent with utime() for immutable and append-only files

This patch fixes utimensat() to make its behavior consistent
with that of utime()/utimes() when dealing with files marked
immutable and append-only.

The current utimensat() implementation also returns EPERM if
'times' is non-NULL and the tv_nsec fields are both UTIME_NOW.
For consistency, the

(times != NULL && times[0].tv_nsec == UTIME_NOW &&
                  times[1].tv_nsec == UTIME_NOW)

case should be treated like the traditional utimes() case where
'times' is NULL.  That is, the call should succeed for a file
marked append-only and should give the error EACCES if the file
is marked as immutable.

The simple way to do this is to set 'times' to NULL
if (times[0].tv_nsec == UTIME_NOW && times[1].tv_nsec == UTIME_NOW).

This is also the natural approach, since POSIX.1 semantics consider the
times == {{x, UTIME_NOW}, {y, UTIME_NOW}}
to be exactly equivalent to the case for
times == NULL.

(Thanks to Miklos for pointing this out.)

Patch 3 in this series relies on the simplification provided
by this patch.

13 years agofutexes: fix fault handling in futex_lock_pi
Thomas Gleixner [Mon, 23 Jun 2008 09:21:58 +0000]
futexes: fix fault handling in futex_lock_pi

This patch addresses a very sporadic pi-futex related failure in
highly threaded java apps on large SMP systems.

David Holmes reported that the pi_state consistency check in
lookup_pi_state triggered with his test application. This means that
the kernel internal pi_state and the user space futex variable are out
of sync. First we assumed that this is a user space data corruption,
but deeper investigation revieled that the problem happend because the
pi-futex code is not handling a fault in the futex_lock_pi path when
the user space variable needs to be fixed up.

The fault happens when a fork mapped the anon memory which contains
the futex readonly for COW or the page got swapped out exactly between
the unlock of the futex and the return of either the new futex owner
or the task which was the expected owner but failed to acquire the
kernel internal rtmutex. The current futex_lock_pi() code drops out
with an inconsistent in case it faults and returns -EFAULT to user
space. User space has no way to fixup that state.

When we wrote this code we thought that we could not drop the hash
bucket lock at this point to handle the fault.

After analysing the code again it turned out to be wrong because there
are only two tasks involved which might modify the pi_state and the
user space variable:

 - the task which acquired the rtmutex
 - the pending owner of the pi_state which did not get the rtmutex

Both tasks drop into the fixup_pi_state() function before returning to
user space. The first task which acquired the hash bucket lock faults
in the fixup of the user space variable, drops the spinlock and calls
futex_handle_fault() to fault in the page. Now the second task could
acquire the hash bucket lock and tries to fixup the user space
variable as well. It either faults as well or it succeeds because the
first task already faulted the page in.

One caveat is to avoid a double fixup. After returning from the fault
handling we reacquire the hash bucket lock and check whether the
pi_state owner has been modified already.

Fix performance regression on lmbench select benchmark

Christian Borntraeger reported that reinstating cond_resched() with
CONFIG_PREEMPT caused a performance regression on lmbench:

For example select file 500:
23 microseconds
32 microseconds

and that's really because we totally unnecessarily do the cond_resched()
in the innermost loop of select(), which is just silly.

This moves it out from the innermost loop (which only ever loops ove the
bits in a single "unsigned long" anyway), which makes the performance
regression go away.

Receiving packets while we are cleaning up a network namespace is a
racy proposition. It is possible when the packet arrives that we have
removed some but not all of the state we need to fully process it.  We
have the choice of either playing wack-a-mole with the cleanup routines
or simply dropping packets when we don't have a network namespace to
handle them.

Since the check looks inexpensive in netif_receive_skb let's just
drop the incoming packets.

alpha: resurrect Cypress IDE quirk

Which was removed in the hope that generic legacy IDE quirk in
drivers/pci/probe.c is sufficient for Cypress IDE.
It isn't, as this controller has non-standard BAR layout:
secondary channel registers are in the BAR0-1 of the second
PCI function - not in the BAR2-3 of the same function, as the
generic quirk routine assumes.

Ivan Kokshaysky [Fri, 20 Jun 2008 23:28:31 +0000]
alpha: fix compile failures with gcc-4.3 (bug #10438)

Vast majority of these build failures are gcc-4.3 warnings
about static functions and objects being referenced from
non-static (read: "extern inline") functions, in conjunction
with our -Werror.

We cannot just convert "extern inline" to "static inline",
as people keep suggesting all the time, because "extern inline"
logic is crucial for generic kernel build.
So
- just make sure that all callees of critical "extern inline"
  functions are also "extern inline";
- use "static inline", wherever it's possible.

traps.c: work around gcc-4.3 being too smart about array
bounds-checking.

TODO: add "gnu_inline" attribute to all our "extern inline"
functions to ensure desired behaviour with future compilers.

Ivan Kokshaysky [Fri, 20 Jun 2008 23:26:21 +0000]
alpha: link failure fix

With built-in scsi disk driver, the final link fails with a following
error:
`.exit.text' referenced in section `.rodata' of drivers/built-in.o:
defined in discarded section `.exit.text' of drivers/built-in.o

This happens with -Os (CONFIG_CC_OPTIMIZE_FOR_SIZE=y) with all gcc-4
versions, and also with -O2 and gcc-4.3.

The problem is in sd.c:sd_major() being inlined into __exit function
exit_sd(), and the compiler generating a jump table in .rodata section
for the 'switch' statement in sd_major(). So we have references to
discarded section.

Fixed with a big hammer in the form of -fno-jump-tables.

Note that jump tables vs. discarded sections is a generic problem,
other architectures are just lucky not to suffer from it. But with
a slightly more complex switch/case statement it can be reproduced
on x86 as well. So maybe at some point we should consider
-fno-jump-tables as a generic compile option...

alpha: fix module load failures on smp (bug #10926)

To calculate addresses of locally defined variables, GCC uses 32-bit
displacement from the GP. Which doesn't work for per cpu variables in
modules, as an offset to the kernel per cpu area is way above 4G.

The workaround is to force allocation of a GOT entry for per cpu variable
using ldq instruction with a 'literal' relocation.
I had to use custom asm/percpu.h, as a required argument magic doesn't
work with asm-generic/percpu.h macros.

[watchdog] hpwdt: fix use of inline assembly

The inline assembly in drivers/watchdog/hpwdt.c was incredibly broken,
and included all the function prologue and epilogue stuff, even though
it was itself then inside a C function where the compiler would add its
own prologue and epilogue on top of it all.

This then just _happened_ to work if you had exactly the right compiler
version and exactly the right compiler flags, so that gcc just happened
to not create any prologue at all (the gcc-generated epilogue wouldn't
matter, since it would never be reached).

But the more proper way to fix it is to simply not do this.  Move the
inline asm to the top level, with no surrounding function at all (the
better alternative would be to remove the prologue and make it actually
use proper description of the arguments to the inline asm, but that's a
bigger change than the one I'm willing to make right now).
