2011-02-16hwmon: (jc42) do not allow writing to locked registersClemens Ladisch
On systems where the temperature sensor is actually used, the BIOS is likely to have locked the alarm registers. In that case, all writes through the corresponding sysfs files would be silently ignored. To prevent this, detect the locks and make the affected sysfs files read-only.

2011-02-02memsw: deprecate noswapaccount kernel parameter and schedule it for removalMichal Hocko
noswapaccount couldn't be used to control memsw for both on/off cases so we have added swapaccount[=0|1] parameter. This way we can turn the feature in two ways noswapaccount resp. swapaccount=0. We have kept the original noswapaccount but I think we should remove it after some time as it just makes more command line parameters without any advantages and also the code to handle parameters is uglier if we want both parameters.

2011-01-31NTFS: Fix invalid pointer dereference in ntfs_mft_record_alloc().Anton Altaparmakov
In ntfs_mft_record_alloc() when mapping the new extent mft record with map_extent_mft_record() we overwrite @m with the return value and on error, we then try to use the old @m but that is no longer there as @m now contains an error code instead so we crash when dereferencing the error code as if it were a pointer. The simple fix is to use a temporary variable to store the return value thus preserving the original @m for later use. This is a backport from the commercial Tuxera-NTFS driver and is well tested... Thanks go to Julia Lawall for pointing this out (whilst I had fixed it in the commercial driver I had failed to fix it in the Linux kernel).

2011-01-24can: at91_can: make can_id of mailbox 0 configurableMarc Kleine-Budde
Due to a chip bug (errata & in "AT91SAM9263 Preliminary 6249H-ATARM-27-Jul-09") the contents of mailbox 0 may be send under certain conditions (even if disabled or in rx mode). The workaround in the errata suggests not to use the mailbox and load it with an unused identifier. This patch implements the second part of the workaround. A sysfs entry "mb0_id" is introduced. While the interface is down it can be used to configure the can_id of mailbox 0. The default value id 0x7ff. In order to use an extended can_id add the CAN_EFF_FLAG (0x80000000U) to the can_id. Example: - standard id 0x7ff: echo 0x7ff > /sys/class/net/can0/mb0_id - extended id 0x1fffffff: echo 0x9fffffff > /sys/class/net/can0/mb0_id Signed-off-by: Marc Kleine-Budde <mkl@pengutronix.de> Acked-by: Wolfgang Grandegger <wg@grandegger.com> Acked-by: Kurt Van Dijck <kurt.van.dijck@eia.be> For the Documentation-part: Acked-by: Wolfram Sang <w.sang@pengutronix.de>

PROT_EXEC seems to be completely unnecessary (as the lguest binary never executes there), and will allow it to work with SELinux (and more importantly, PaX :-) as they can/do forbid writable and executable mappings. Also, map PROT_NONE guard pages at start and end of guest memory for extra paranoia.

2011-01-17fallocate should be a file operationChristoph Hellwig
Currently all filesystems except XFS implement fallocate asynchronously, while XFS forced a commit. Both of these are suboptimal - in case of O_SYNC I/O we really want our allocation on disk, especially for the !KEEP_SIZE case where we actually grow the file with user-visible zeroes. On the other hand always commiting the transaction is a bad idea for fast-path uses of fallocate like for example in recent Samba versions. Given that block allocation is a data plane operation anyway change it from an inode operation to a file operation so that we have the file structure available that lets us check for O_SYNC. This also includes moving the code around for a few of the filesystems, and remove the already unnedded S_ISDIR checks given that we only wire up fallocate for regular files.

2011-01-15Unexport do_add_mount() and add in follow_automount(), not ->d_automount()David Howells
Unexport do_add_mount() and make ->d_automount() return the vfsmount to be added rather than calling do_add_mount() itself. follow_automount() will then do the addition. This slightly complicates things as ->d_automount() normally wants to add the new vfsmount to an expiration list and start an expiration timer. The problem with that is that the vfsmount will be deleted if it has a refcount of 1 and the timer will not repeat if the expiration list is empty. To this end, we require the vfsmount to be returned from d_automount() with a refcount of (at least) 2. One of these refs will be dropped unconditionally. In addition, follow_automount() must get a 3rd ref around the call to do_add_mount() lest it eat a ref and return an error, leaving the mount we have open to being expired as we would otherwise have only 1 ref on it. d_automount() should also add the the vfsmount to the expiration list (by calling mnt_set_expiry()) and start the expiration timer before returning, if this mechanism is to be used. The vfsmount will be unlinked from the expiration list by follow_automount() if do_add_mount() fails. This patch also fixes the call to do_add_mount() for AFS to propagate the mount flags from the parent vfsmount.
