[PATCH] replace cad_pid by a struct pid

There are a few places in the kernel where the init task is signaled.  The
ctrl+alt+del sequence is one them.  It kills a task, usually init, using a
cached pid (cad_pid).

This patch replaces the pid_t by a struct pid to avoid pid wrap around
problem.  The struct pid is initialized at boot time in init() and can be
modified through systctl with

/proc/sys/kernel/cad_pid

[ I haven't found any distro using it ? ]

It also introduces a small helper routine kill_cad_pid() which is used
where it seemed ok to use cad_pid instead of pid 1.

[PATCH] proc: Remove the hard coded inode numbers

The hard coded inode numbers in proc currently limit its maintainability,

pid-max to 32768 on 32 bit systems it limits fd-max to 32768 on all systems,
and placing the pid in the inode number really gets in the way of implementing
subdirectories of per process information.

Ever since people started adding to the middle of the file type enumeration we
haven't been maintaing the historical inode numbers, all we have really
succeeded in doing is keeping the pid in the proc inode number.  The pid is
already available in the directory name so no information is lost removing it
from the inode number.

So if something in user space cares if we remove the inode number from the

[PATCH] proc: Make the generation of the self symlink table driven

This patch generalizes the concept of files in /proc that are related to
processes but live in the root directory of /proc

Ideally this would reuse infrastructure from the rest of the process specific
parts of proc but unfortunately security_task_to_inode must not be called on
files that are not strictly per process.  security_task_to_inode really needs
to be reexamined as the security label can change in important places that we
are not currently catching, but I'm not certain that simplifies this problem.

By at least matching the structure of the rest of proc we get more idiom reuse
and it becomes easier to spot problems in the way things are put together.

Later things like /proc/mounts are likely to be moved into proc_base as well.
If union mounts are ever supported we may be able to make /proc a union mount,

The old debug code can simply be removed, since we don't really have that much
of a need for it anymore, it was mostly something that was handy during the
initial bringup.  This also brings us closer to something that looks like
readable code again..

I also added a sane kernel_thread() implementation that gets away from this,
so that should take care of sh64 at least.

[PATCH] provide kernel_execve on all architectures

This adds the new kernel_execve function on all architectures that were using
_syscall3() to implement execve.

The implementation uses code from the _syscall3 macros provided in the
unistd.h header file.  I don't have cross-compilers for any of these
architectures, so the patch is untested with the exception of i386.

Most architectures can probably implement this in a nicer way in assembly or
by combining it with the sys_execve implementation itself, but this should do
it for now.

Move the aging of RPC/TCP connection sockets from the main svc_recv() loop to
a timer which uses a mark-and-sweep algorithm every 6 minutes.  This reduces
the amount of work that needs to be done in the main RPC loop and the length

[PATCH] knfsd: Correctly handle error condition from lockd_up

If lockd_up fails - what should we expect?  Do we have to later call
lockd_down?

Well the nfs client thinks "no", the nfs server thinks "yes".  lockd thinks
"yes".

The only answer that really makes sense is "no" !!

So:
  Make lockd_up only increment  nlmsvc_users on success.
  Make nfsd handle errors from lockd_up properly.
  Make sure lockd_up(0) never fails when lockd is running
    so that the 'reclaimer' call to lockd_up doesn't need to
    be error checked.

[PATCH] knfsd: remove nfsd_versbits as intermediate storage for desired versions

versions.

The bits in this bitset cause content to be copied from nfsd_version to
nfsd_versions when nfsd starts.

This patch removes nfsd_versbits and moves information directly from
nfsd_version to nfsd_versions when requests for version changes arrive.

Note that this doesn't make it possible to change versions while the server is
running.  This is because serv->sv_xdrsize is calculated when a service is
created, and used when threads are created, and xdrsize depends on the active

NeilBrown [Mon, 2 Oct 2006 09:17:45 +0000 (02:17 -0700)]
[PATCH] knfsd: be more selective in which sockets lockd listens on

Currently lockd listens on UDP always, and TCP if CONFIG_NFSD_TCP is set.

However as lockd performs services of the client as well, this is a problem.
If CONFIG_NfSD_TCP is not set, and a tcp mount is used, the server will not be
able to call back to lockd.

So:
 - add an option to lockd_up saying which protocol is needed
 - Always open sockets for which an explicit port was given, otherwise
   only open a socket of the type required
 - Change nfsd to do one lockd_up per socket rather than one per thread.

This
 - removes the dependancy on CONFIG_NFSD_TCP
 - means that lockd may open sockets other than at startup
 - means that lockd will *not* listen on UDP if the only
   mounts are TCP mount (and nfsd hasn't started).

The latter is the only one that concerns me at all - I don't know if this
might be a problem with some servers.

  probe registration fails with an -EINVAL.

o Modify tcp_probe.c that uses the kprobe interface so as to make it
  work on multiple platforms (in its earlier form, the code wouldn't

[PATCH] usb: fixup usb so it uses struct pid

The problem with remembering a user space process by its pid is that it is
possible that the process will exit, pid wrap around will occur.
Converting to a struct pid avoid that problem, and paves the way for
implementing a pid namespace.

Also since usb is the only user of kill_proc_info_as_uid rename
kill_proc_info_as_uid to kill_pid_info_as_uid and have the new version take
a struct pid.

[PATCH] file: Add locking to f_getown

This has been needed for a long time, but now with the advent of a
reference counted struct pid there are real consequences for getting this
wrong.

Someone I think it was Oleg Nesterov pointed out that this construct was
missing locking, when I introduced struct pid.  After taking time to review
the locking construct already present I figured out which lock needs to be
taken.  The other paths that access f_owner.pid take either the f_owner
read or the write lock.
