af_packet: add interframe drop cmsg (v6)

Add Ancilliary data to better represent loss information

I've had a few requests recently to provide more detail regarding frame loss
during an AF_PACKET packet capture session.  Specifically the requestors want to
see where in a packet sequence frames were lost, i.e. they want to see that 40
frames were lost between frames 302 and 303 in a packet capture file.  In order
to do this we need:

1) The kernel to export this data to user space
2) The applications to make use of it

This patch addresses item (1).  It does this by doing the following:

A) Anytime we drop a frame for which we would increment po->stats.tp_drops, we
also no increment a stats called po->stats.tp_gap.

B) Every time we successfully enqueue a frame to sk_receive_queue, we record the
value of po->stats.tp_gap in skb->mark.  skb->cb would nominally be the place to
record this, but since all the space there is used up, we're overloading
skb->mark.  Its safe to do since any enqueued packet is guaranteed to be
unshared at this point, and skb->mark isn't used for anything else in the rx
path to the application.  After we record tp_gap in the skb, we zero
po->stats.tp_gap.  This allows us to keep a counter of the number of frames lost
between any two enqueued packets

C) When the application goes to dequeue a frame from the packet socket, we look
at skb->mark for that frame.  If it is non-zero, we add a cmsg chunk to the
msghdr of level SOL_PACKET and type PACKET_GAPDATA.  Its a 32 bit integer that
represents the number of frames lost between this packet and the last previous
frame received.

Note there is a chance that if there is frame loss after a receive, and then the
socket is closed, some gap data might be lost.  This is covered by the use of
the PACKET_AUXDATA socket option, which gives total loss data.  With a bit of
math, the final gap can be determined that way.

I've tested this patch myself, and it works well.

tty: Avoid dropping ldisc_mutex over hangup tty re-initialization

A couple of people have hit the WARN_ON() in drivers/char/tty_io.c,
tty_open() that is unhappy about seeing the tty line discipline go away
during the tty hangup. See for example

http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14255

and the reason is that we do the tty_ldisc_halt() outside the
ldisc_mutex in order to be able to flush the scheduled work without a
deadlock with vhangup_work.

However, it turns out that we can solve this particular case by

 - using "cancel_delayed_work_sync()" in tty_ldisc_halt(), which waits
   for just the particular work, rather than synchronizing with any
   random outstanding pending work.

   This won't deadlock, since the buf.work we synchronize with doesn't
   care about the ldisc_mutex, it just flushes the tty ldisc buffers.

 - realize that for this particular case, we don't need to wait for any
   hangup work, because we are inside the hangup codepaths ourselves.

so as a result we can just drop the flush_scheduled_work() entirely, and
then move the tty_ldisc_halt() call to inside the mutex.  That way we
never expose the partially torn down ldisc state to tty_open(), and hold
the ldisc_mutex over the whole sequence.

12 years agocfq-iosched: add a knob for desktop interactiveness

cfq-iosched: add a knob for desktop interactiveness

This is basically identical to what Vivek Goyal posted, but combined
into one and labelled 'desktop' instead of 'fairness'. The goal
is to continue to improve on the latency side of things as it relates
to interactiveness, keeping the questionable bits under this sysfs
tunable so it would be easy for throughput-only people to turn off.

Apart from adding the interactive sysfs knob, it also adds the
behavioural change of allowing slice idling even if the hardware
does tagged command queuing.

cnic: Fix NETDEV_UP event processing.

This fixes the problem of not handling the NETDEV_UP event properly
during hot-plug or modprobe of bnx2 after cnic.  The handling was
skipped by mistakenly using "else if" to check for the event.

Also update version to 2.0.1.
