2011-12-29procfs: do not confuse jiffies with cputime64_tAndreas Schwab
Commit 2a95ea6c0d129b4 ("procfs: do not overflow get_{idle,iowait}_time for nohz") did not take into account that one some architectures jiffies and cputime use different units. This causes get_idle_time() to return numbers in the wrong units, making the idle time fields in /proc/stat wrong. Instead of converting the usec value returned by get_cpu_{idle,iowait}_time_us to units of jiffies, use the new function usecs_to_cputime64 to convert it to the correct unit of cputime64_t.

2011-12-29mm/mempolicy.c: refix mbind_range() vma issueKOSAKI Motohiro
commit 8aacc9f550 ("mm/mempolicy.c: fix pgoff in mbind vma merge") is the slightly incorrect fix. Why? Think following case. 1. map 4 pages of a file at offset 0 [0123] 2. map 2 pages just after the first mapping of the same file but with page offset 2 [0123][23] 3. mbind() 2 pages from the first mapping at offset 2. mbind_range() should treat new vma is, [0123][23] |23| mbind vma but it does [0123][23] |01| mbind vma Oops. then, it makes wrong vma merge and splitting ([01][0123] or similar).

2011-12-29block: fix blk_queue_end_tag()Dan Williams
Commit 5e081591 "block: warn if tag is greater than real_max_depth" cleaned up blk_queue_end_tag() to warn when the tag is truly invalid (greater than real_max_depth). However, it changed behavior in the tag < max_depth case to not end the request. Leading to triggering of BUG_ON(blk_queued_rq(rq)) in the request completion path: http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=132204370518629&w=2 In order to allow blk_queue_resize_tags() to shrink the tag space blk_queue_end_tag() must always complete tags with a value less than real_max_depth regardless of the current max_depth. The comment about "handling the shrink case" seems to be what prompted changes in this space, so remove it and BUG on all invalid tags (made even simpler by Matthew's suggestion to use an unsigned compare).

Because the s3c2410-iotiming.c is not ever compiled and enabling CONFIG_CPU_FREQ_S3C24XX_DEBUGFS option caused undefined reference to s3c2410_iotiming_debugfs() defined in that file.

2011-12-27watchdog: iTCO_wdt.c - problems with newer hardware due to SMI clearing (part 2)Wim Van Sebroeck
Redhat Bugzilla: Bug 727875 - TCO_EN bit is disabled by TCO driver The previous patch breaks reset watchdog behaviour on the older hardware. It is therefor better to make sure that the behaviour for older hardware (<=ICH5 or 6300ESB) is preserved and that the behaviour for newer hardware is changed. We therefor use the iTCO_version to see if we need the clearing of the SMI_TCO_EN bit in the SMI_EN register. So the new behaviour becomes: turn_SMI_watchdog_clear_off=0 -> Do not turn off SMI clearing watchdog. turn_SMI_watchdog_clear_off=1 -> Turn off SMI clearing watchdog when iTCO_version=1 (ICHO till ICH5 + 6300ESB only) turn_SMI_watchdog_clear_off=2 -> Turn off SMI clearing watchdog.

2011-12-26vfs: fix handling of lock allocation failure in lease-break caseLinus Torvalds
Bruce Fields notes that commit 778fc546f749 ("locks: fix tracking of inprogress lease breaks") introduced a possible error pointer dereference on failure to allocate memory. locks_conflict() will dereference the passed-in new lease lock structure that may be an error pointer. This means an open (without O_NONBLOCK set) on a file with a lease applied (generally only done when Samba or nfsd (with v4) is running) could crash if a kmalloc() fails. So instead of playing games with IS_ERROR() all over the place, just check the allocation failure early. That makes the code more straightforward, and avoids this possible bad pointer dereference.

2011-12-26KVM: Don't automatically expose the TSC deadline timer in cpuidJan Kiszka
Unlike all of the other cpuid bits, the TSC deadline timer bit is set unconditionally, regardless of what userspace wants. This is broken in several ways: - if userspace doesn't use KVM_CREATE_IRQCHIP, and doesn't emulate the TSC deadline timer feature, a guest that uses the feature will break - live migration to older host kernels that don't support the TSC deadline timer will cause the feature to be pulled from under the guest's feet; breaking it - guests that are broken wrt the feature will fail. Fix by not enabling the feature automatically; instead report it to userspace. Because the feature depends on KVM_CREATE_IRQCHIP, which we cannot guarantee will be called, we expose it via a KVM_CAP_TSC_DEADLINE_TIMER and not KVM_GET_SUPPORTED_CPUID. Fixes the Illumos guest kernel, which uses the TSC deadline timer feature.

2011-12-25KVM: Device assignment permission checksAlex Williamson
Only allow KVM device assignment to attach to devices which: - Are not bridges - Have BAR resources (assume others are special devices) - The user has permissions to use Assigning a bridge is a configuration error, it's not supported, and typically doesn't result in the behavior the user is expecting anyway. Devices without BAR resources are typically chipset components that also don't have host drivers. We don't want users to hold such devices captive or cause system problems by fencing them off into an iommu domain. We determine "permission to use" by testing whether the user has access to the PCI sysfs resource files. By default a normal user will not have access to these files, so it provides a good indication that an administration agent has granted the user access to the device.

2011-12-25KVM: x86: Prevent starting PIT timers in the absence of irqchip supportJan Kiszka
User space may create the PIT and forgets about setting up the irqchips. In that case, firing PIT IRQs will crash the host: BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000000000000128 IP: [<ffffffffa10f6280>] kvm_set_irq+0x30/0x170 [kvm] ... Call Trace: [<ffffffffa11228c1>] pit_do_work+0x51/0xd0 [kvm] [<ffffffff81071431>] process_one_work+0x111/0x4d0 [<ffffffff81071bb2>] worker_thread+0x152/0x340 [<ffffffff81075c8e>] kthread+0x7e/0x90 [<ffffffff815a4474>] kernel_thread_helper+0x4/0x10 Prevent this by checking the irqchip mode before starting a timer. We can't deny creating the PIT if the irqchips aren't set up yet as current user land expects this order to work.

2011-12-24netem: dont call vfree() under spinlock and BH disabledEric Dumazet
commit 6373a9a286 (netem: use vmalloc for distribution table) added a regression, since vfree() is called while holding a spinlock and BH being disabled. Fix this by doing the pointers swap in critical section, and freeing after spinlock release. Also add __GFP_NOWARN to the kmalloc() try, since we fallback to vmalloc().

Add a req_running field to the pl330_thread to track which request (if any) has been submitted to the DMA. This mechanism replaces the old one in which we tried to guess the same by looking at the PC of the DMA, which could prevent the driver from sending more requests if it didn't guess correctly.

2011-12-23xfs: log all dirty inodes in xfs_fs_sync_fsChristoph Hellwig
Since Linux 2.6.36 the writeback code has introduces various measures for live lock prevention during sync(). Unfortunately some of these are actively harmful for the XFS model, where the inode gets marked dirty for metadata from the data I/O handler. The older_than_this checks that are now more strictly enforced since writeback: avoid livelocking WB_SYNC_ALL writeback by only calling into __writeback_inodes_sb and thus only sampling the current cut off time once. But on a slow enough devices the previous asynchronous sync pass might not have fully completed yet, and thus XFS might mark metadata dirty only after that sampling of the cut off time for the blocking pass already happened. I have not myself reproduced this myself on a real system, but by introducing artificial delay into the XFS I/O completion workqueues it can be reproduced easily. Fix this by iterating over all XFS inodes in ->sync_fs and log all that are dirty. This might log inode that only got redirtied after the previous pass, but given how cheap delayed logging of inodes is it isn't a major concern for performance.
