Dmitry Adamushko [Sun, 13 Jul 2008 00:10:29 +0000 (02:10 +0200)]
cpusets, hotplug, scheduler: fix scheduler domain breakage

Commit f18f982ab ("sched: CPU hotplug events must not destroy scheduler
domains created by the cpusets") introduced a hotplug-related problem as
described below:

Upon CPU_DOWN_PREPARE,

  update_sched_domains() -> detach_destroy_domains(&cpu_online_map)

does the following:

/*
 * Force a reinitialization of the sched domains hierarchy. The domains
 * and groups cannot be updated in place without racing with the balancing
 * code, so we temporarily attach all running cpus to the NULL domain
 * which will prevent rebalancing while the sched domains are recalculated.
 */

The sched-domains should be rebuilt when a CPU_DOWN ops. has been
completed, effectively either upon CPU_DEAD{_FROZEN} (upon success) or
CPU_DOWN_FAILED{_FROZEN} (upon failure -- restore the things to their
initial state). That's what update_sched_domains() also does but only
for !CPUSETS case.

With f18f982ab, sched-domains' reinitialization is delegated to
CPUSETS code:

cpuset_handle_cpuhp() -> common_cpu_mem_hotplug_unplug() ->
rebuild_sched_domains()

Being called for CPU_UP_PREPARE and if its callback is called after
update_sched_domains()), it just negates all the work done by
update_sched_domains() -- i.e. a soon-to-be-offline cpu is included in
the sched-domains and that makes it visible for the load-balancer
while the CPU_DOWN ops. is in progress.

__migrate_live_tasks() moves the tasks off a 'dead' cpu (it's already
"offline" when this function is called).

try_to_wake_up() is called for one of these tasks from another CPU ->
the load-balancer (wake_idle()) picks up a "dead" CPU and places the
task on it. Then e.g. BUG_ON(rq->nr_running) detects this a bit later
-> oops.

ov7670: clean up ov7670_read semantics

Cortland Setlow pointed out a bug in ov7670.c where the result from
ov7670_read() was just being checked for !0, rather than <0.  This made me
realize that ov7670_read's semantics were rather confusing; it both fills
in 'value' with the result, and returns it.  This is goes against general
kernel convention; so rather than fixing callers, let's fix the function.

This makes ov7670_read return <0 in the case of an error, and 0 upon
success. Thus, code like:

res = ov7670_read(...);
if (!res)
goto error;

..will work properly.

fbdev: bugfix for multiprocess defio

This patch is a bugfix for how defio handles multiple processes manipulating
the same framebuffer.

Thanks to Bernard Blackham for identifying this bug.

It occurs when two applications mmap the same framebuffer and concurrently
write to the same page.  Normally, this doesn't occur since only a single
process mmaps the framebuffer.  The symptom of the bug is that the mapping
applications will hang.  The cause is that defio incorrectly tries to add the
same page twice to the pagelist.  The solution I have is to walk the pagelist
and check for a duplicate before adding.  Since I needed to walk the pagelist,
I now also keep the pagelist in sorted order.

check again for newly-arrived work that requires another call to
do_notify_resume() before going to user mode.  These paths set the
mask to check only _TIF_NEED_RESCHED, but this is wrong.  The other
paths that lead to do_notify_resume() do this correctly already, and
entry_32.S does it correctly in all cases.

All paths back to user mode have to check all the _TIF_WORK_MASK
flags at the last possible stage, with interrupts disabled.
Otherwise, we miss any flags (TIF_SIGPENDING for example) that were
set any time after we entered do_notify_resume().  More work flags
can be set (or left set) synchronously inside do_notify_resume(), as
TIF_SIGPENDING can be, or asynchronously by interrupts or other CPUs
(which then send an asynchronous interrupt).

There are many different scenarios that could hit this bug, most of
them races.  The simplest one to demonstrate does not require any
race: when one signal has done handler setup at the check before
returning from a syscall, and there is another signal pending that
should be handled.  The second signal's handler should interrupt the
first signal handler before it actually starts (so the interrupted PC
is still at the handler's entry point).  Instead, it runs away until
the next kernel entry (next syscall, tick, etc).

This test behaves correctly on 32-bit kernels, and fails on 64-bit

x86: I/O APIC: Never configure IRQ2

There is no such entity as ISA IRQ2.  The ACPI spec does not make it
explicitly clear, but does not preclude it either -- all it says is ISA
legacy interrupts are identity mapped by default (subject to overrides),
but it does not state whether IRQ2 exists or not.  As a result if there is
no IRQ0 override, then IRQ2 is normally initialised as an ISA interrupt,
which implies an edge-triggered line, which is unmasked by default as this
is what we do for edge-triggered I/O APIC interrupts so as not to miss an
edge.

To the best of my knowledge it is useless, as IRQ2 has not been in use
since the PC/AT as back then it was taken by the 8259A cascade interrupt
to the slave, with the line position in the slot rerouted to newly-created
IRQ9.  No device could thus make use of this line with the pair of 8259A
chips.  Now in theory INTIN2 of the I/O APIC may be usable, but the
interrupt of the device wired to it would not be available in the PIC mode
at all, so I seriously doubt if anybody decided to reuse it for a regular
device.

However there are two common uses of INTIN2.  One is for IRQ0, with an
ACPI interrupt override (or its equivalent in the MP table).  But in this
case IRQ2 is gone entirely with INTIN0 left vacant.  The other one is for
an 8959A ExtINTA cascade.  In this case IRQ0 goes to INTIN0 and if ACPI is
used INTIN2 is assumed to be IRQ2 (there is no override and ACPI has no
way to report ExtINTA interrupts).  This is where a problem happens.

The problem is INTIN2 is configured as a native APIC interrupt, with a
vector assigned and the mask cleared.  And the line may indeed get active
and inject interrupts if the master 8959A has its timer interrupt enabled
(it might happen for other interrupts too, but they are normally masked in
the process of rerouting them to the I/O APIC).  There are two cases where
it will happen:

* When the I/O APIC NMI watchdog is enabled.  This is actually a misnomer
  as the watchdog pulses are delivered through the 8259A to the LINT0
  inputs of all the local APICs in the system.  The implication is the
  output of the master 8259A goes high and low repeatedly, signalling
  interrupts to INTIN2 which is enabled too!

  [The origin of the name is I think for a brief period during the
  development we had a capability in our code to configure the watchdog to
  use an I/O APIC input; that would be INTIN2 in this scenario.]

* When the native route of IRQ0 via INTIN0 fails for whatever reason -- as
  it happens with the system considered here.  In this scenario the timer
  pulse is delivered through the 8259A to LINT0 input of the local APIC of
  the bootstrap processor, quite similarly to how is done for the watchdog
  described above.  The result is, again, INTIN2 receives these pulses
  too.  Rafael's system used to escape this scenario, because an incorrect
  IRQ0 override would occupy INTIN2 and prevent it from being unmasked.

My conclusion is IRQ2 should be excluded from configuration in all the
cases and the current exception for ACPI systems should be lifted.  The
reason being the exception not only being useless, but harmful as well.

Fix reference counting race on log buffers

When we release the iclog, we do an atomic_dec_and_lock to determine if
we are the last reference and need to trigger update of log headers and
writeout.  However, in xlog_state_get_iclog_space() we also need to
check if we have the last reference count there.  If we do, we release
the log buffer, otherwise we decrement the reference count.

But the compare and decrement in xlog_state_get_iclog_space() is not
atomic, so both places can see a reference count of 2 and neither will
release the iclog.  That leads to a filesystem hang.

Close the race by replacing the atomic_read() and atomic_dec() pair with
atomic_add_unless() to ensure that they are executed atomically.

|     x86: remove open-coded save/load segment operations
|
|     This removes a pile of buggy open-coded implementations of savesegment
|     and loadsegment.

after some more bisection of this patch itself, it turns out that what
makes the difference are the savesegment() changes to __switch_to().

Taking a look at this portion of arch/x86/kernel/process_64.o revealed
this crutial difference:

| good:    99c:       8c e0                   mov    %fs,%eax
|          99e:       89 45 cc                mov    %eax,-0x34(%rbp)
|
| bad:     99c:       8c 65 cc                mov    %fs,-0x34(%rbp)

which is due to:

|                 unsigned fsindex;
| -               asm volatile("movl %%fs,%0" : "=r" (fsindex));
| +               savesegment(fs, fsindex);

savesegment() is implemented as:

 #define savesegment(seg, value)                                \
          asm("mov %%" #seg ",%0":"=rm" (value) : : "memory")

note the "m" modifier - it allows GCC to generate the segment move
into a memory operand as well.

But regarding segment operands there's a subtle detail in the x86
instruction set: the above 16-bit moves are zero-extend, but only
if it goes to a register.

If it goes to a memory operand, -0x34(%rbp) in the above case, there's
no zero-extend to 32-bit and the instruction will only save 16 bits
instead of the intended 32-bit.

The other 16 bits is random data - which can cause problems when that
value is used later on.

The solution is to only allow segment operands to go to registers.
This fix allows my test-system to boot up without crashing.

libata-acpi: filter out DIPM enable

Some BIOSen enable DIPM via _GTF which causes command timeouts under
certain configuration.  This didn't occur on 2.6.25 because 2.6.25
defaulted to SRST, so _GTF wasn't executed during boot probe, so ahci
host reset disabled DIPM and as _GTF wasn't executed after SRST, DIPM
wasn't enabled.  On 2.6.26, hardreset is used during probe and after
probe _GTF is executed enabling DIPM and thus the failures.

This patch could theoretically disable DIPM on machines which used to
have it enabled on 2.6.25 but AFAIK ahci is currently the only driver
which uses SATA ACPI hierarchy (_SDD) and as the host reset would have

tun: Persistent devices can get stuck in xoff state

The scenario goes like this. App stops reading from tun/tap.
TX queue gets full and driver does netif_stop_queue().
App closes fd and TX queue gets flushed as part of the cleanup.
Next time the app opens tun/tap and starts reading from it but
the xoff state is not cleared. We're stuck.
Normally xoff state is cleared when netdev is brought up. But
in the case of persistent devices this happens only during
initial setup.

The fix is trivial. If device is already up when an app opens
it we clear xoff state and that gets things moving again.

and analyzed it:

  "The register %ecx looks innocent but is very important here. The disassembly:

       mov    %edx,%ecx
       shr    $0x2,%ecx
       rep stos %eax,%es:(%edi) <-- the fault

   So %ecx has been loaded from %edx... which is 0x6b6b6b6b/POISON_FREE.
   (0x6b6b6b6b >> 2 == 0x1adadada.)

   %ecx is the counter for the memset, from here:

       memset(object, 0, c->objsize);

  i.e. %ecx was loaded from c->objsize, so "c" must have been freed.
  Where did "c" come from? Uh-oh...

       c = get_cpu_slab(s, smp_processor_id());

  This looks like it has very much to do with CPU hotplug/unplug. Is
  there a race between SLUB/hotplug since the CPU slab is used after it
  has been freed?"

Good analysis.

Yeah, it's possible that a caller of kmem_cache_alloc() -> slab_alloc()
can be migrated on another CPU right after local_irq_restore() and
before memset().  The inital cpu can become offline in the mean time (or
a migration is a consequence of the CPU going offline) so its
'kmem_cache_cpu' structure gets freed ( slab_cpuup_callback).

At some point of time the caller continues on another CPU having an
obsolete pointer...

exec: fix stack excutability without PT_GNU_STACK

Kernel Bugzilla #11063 points out that on some architectures (e.g. x86_32)
exec'ing an ELF without a PT_GNU_STACK program header should default to an
executable stack; but this got broken by the unlimited argv feature because
stack vma is now created before the right personality has been established:
so breaking old binaries using nested function trampolines.

Therefore re-evaluate VM_STACK_FLAGS in setup_arg_pages, where stack
vm_flags used to be set, before the mprotect_fixup.  Checking through
our existing VM_flags, none would have changed since insert_vm_struct:
so this seems safer than finding a way through the personality labyrinth.

Fix PREEMPT_RCU without HOTPLUG_CPU

PREEMPT_RCU without HOTPLUG_CPU is broken.  The rcu_online_cpu is called
to initially populate rcu_cpu_online_map with all online CPUs when the
hotplug event handler is installed, and also to populate the map with
CPUs as they come online.  The former case is meant to happen with and
without HOTPLUG_CPU, but without HOTPLUG_CPU, the rcu_offline_cpu
function is no-oped -- while it still gets called, it does not set the
rcu CPU map.

With a blank RCU CPU map, grace periods get to tick by completely
oblivious to active RCU read side critical sections.  This results in
free-before-grace bugs.

Fix is obvious once the problem is known. (Also, change __devinit to
__cpuinit so the function gets thrown away on !HOTPLUG_CPU kernels).
