Commit 703625118069f9f8960d356676662d3db5a9d116 exposed that f_modown() should call write_lock_irqsave instead of just write_lock_irq so that because a caller could have a spinlock held and it would not be good to renable interrupts.

2009-12-16fasync: split 'fasync_helper()' into separate add/remove functionsLinus Torvalds
Yes, the add and remove cases do share the same basic loop and the locking, but the compiler can inline and then CSE some of the end result anyway. And splitting it up makes the code way easier to follow, and makes it clearer exactly what the semantics are. In particular, we must make sure that the FASYNC flag in file->f_flags exactly matches the state of "is this file on any fasync list", since not only is that flag visible to user space (F_GETFL), but we also use that flag to check whether we need to remove any fasync entries on file close. We got that wrong for the case of a mixed use of file locking (which tries to remove any fasync entries for file leases) and fasync. Splitting the function up also makes it possible to do some future optimizations without making the function even messier. In particular, since the FASYNC flag has to match the state of "is this on a list", we can do the following future optimizations: - on remove, we don't even need to get the locks and traverse the list if FASYNC isn't set, since we can know a priori that there is no point (this is effectively the same optimization that we already do in __fput() wrt removing fasync on file close) - on add, we can use the FASYNC flag to decide whether we are changing an existing entry or need to allocate a new one. but this is just the cleanup + fix for the FASYNC flag.

2009-11-17fcntl: rename F_OWNER_GID to F_OWNER_PGRPPeter Zijlstra
This is for consistency with various ioctl() operations that include the suffix "PGRP" in their names, and also for consistency with PRIO_PGRP, used with setpriority() and getpriority(). Also, using PGRP instead of GID avoids confusion with the common abbreviation of "group ID". I'm fine with anything that makes it more consistent, and if PGRP is what is the predominant abbreviation then I see no need to further confuse matters by adding a third one.

2009-09-24fcntl: add F_[SG]ETOWN_EXPeter Zijlstra
In order to direct the SIGIO signal to a particular thread of a multi-threaded application we cannot, like suggested by the manpage, put a TID into the regular fcntl(F_SETOWN) call. It will still be send to the whole process of which that thread is part. Since people do want to properly direct SIGIO we introduce F_SETOWN_EX. The need to direct SIGIO comes from self-monitoring profiling such as with perf-counters. Perf-counters uses SIGIO to notify that new sample data is available. If the signal is delivered to the same task that generated the new sample it can augment that data by inspecting the task's user-space state right after it returns from the kernel. This is esp. convenient for interpreted or virtual machine driven environments. Both F_SETOWN_EX and F_GETOWN_EX take a pointer to a struct f_owner_ex as argument: struct f_owner_ex { int type; pid_t pid; }; Where type is one of F_OWNER_TID, F_OWNER_PID or F_OWNER_GID.

2009-09-24signals: send_sigio: use do_send_sig_info() to avoid check_kill_permission()Oleg Nesterov
group_send_sig_info()->check_kill_permission() assumes that current is the sender and uses current_cred(). This is not true in send_sigio_to_task() case. From the security pov the sender is not current, but the task which did fcntl(F_SETOWN), that is why we have sigio_perm() which uses the right creds to check. Fortunately, send_sigio() always sends either SEND_SIG_PRIV or SI_FROMKERNEL() signal, so check_kill_permission() does nothing. But still it would be tidier to avoid this bogus security check and save a couple of cycles.

2009-03-16Rationalize fasync return valuesJonathan Corbet
Most fasync implementations do something like: return fasync_helper(...); But fasync_helper() will return a positive value at times - a feature used in at least one place. Thus, a number of other drivers do: err = fasync_helper(...); if (err < 0) return err; return 0; In the interests of consistency and more concise code, it makes sense to map positive return values onto zero where ->fasync() is called.

2009-03-16Move FASYNC bit handling to f_op->fasync()Jonathan Corbet
Removing the BKL from FASYNC handling ran into the challenge of keeping the setting of the FASYNC bit in filp->f_flags atomic with regard to calls to the underlying fasync() function. Andi Kleen suggested moving the handling of that bit into fasync(); this patch does exactly that. As a result, we have a couple of internal API changes: fasync() must now manage the FASYNC bit, and it will be called without the BKL held. As it happens, every fasync() implementation in the kernel with one exception calls fasync_helper(). So, if we make fasync_helper() set the FASYNC bit, we can avoid making any changes to the other fasync() functions - as long as those functions, themselves, have proper locking. Most fasync() implementations do nothing but call fasync_helper() - which has its own lock - so they are easily verified as correct. The BKL had already been pushed down into the rest. The networking code has its own version of fasync_helper(), so that code has been augmented with explicit FASYNC bit handling.

2008-07-26[PATCH] dup3 fixUlrich Drepper
Al Viro notice one cornercase that the new dup3() code. The dup2() function, as a special case, handles dup-ing to the same file descriptor. In this case the current dup3() code does nothing at all. I.e., it ingnores the flags parameter. This shouldn't happen, the close-on-exec flag should be set if requested. In case the O_CLOEXEC bit in the flags parameter is not set the dup3() function should behave in this respect identical to dup2(). This means dup3(fd, fd, 0) should not actively reset the c-o-e flag. The patch below implements this minor change.

2006-12-10[PATCH] fdtable: Make fdarray and fdsets equal in sizeVadim Lobanov
Currently, each fdtable supports three dynamically-sized arrays of data: the fdarray and two fdsets. The code allows the number of fds supported by the fdarray (fdtable->max_fds) to differ from the number of fds supported by each of the fdsets (fdtable->max_fdset). In practice, it is wasteful for these two sizes to differ: whenever we hit a limit on the smaller-capacity structure, we will reallocate the entire fdtable and all the dynamic arrays within it, so any delta in the memory used by the larger-capacity structure will never be touched at all. Rather than hogging this excess, we shouldn't even allocate it in the first place, and keep the capacities of the fdarray and the fdsets equal. This patch removes fdtable->max_fdset. As an added bonus, most of the supporting code becomes simpler.

2006-10-02[PATCH] file: Add locking to f_getownEric W. Biederman
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.

2006-10-02[PATCH] file: modify struct fown_struct to use a struct pidEric W. Biederman
File handles can be requested to send sigio and sigurg to processes. By tracking the destination processes using struct pid instead of pid_t we make the interface safe from all potential pid wrap around problems. Signed-off-by: Eric W.

2006-03-26[PATCH] Use __read_mostly on some hot fs variablesEric Dumazet
I discovered on oprofile hunting on a SMP platform that dentry lookups were slowed down because d_hash_mask, d_hash_shift and dentry_hashtable were in a cache line that contained inodes_stat. So each time inodes_stats is changed by a cpu, other cpus have to refill their cache line. This patch moves some variables to the __read_mostly section, in order to avoid false sharing. RCU dentry lookups can go full speed. Signed-off-by: Eric Dumazet <dada1@cosmosbay.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2006-03-23[PATCH] Shrinks sizeof(files_struct) and better layoutEric Dumazet
1) Reduce the size of (struct fdtable) to exactly 64 bytes on 32bits platforms, lowering kmalloc() allocated space by 50%. 2) Reduce the size of (files_struct), using a special 32 bits (or 64bits) embedded_fd_set, instead of a 1024 bits fd_set for the close_on_exec_init and open_fds_init fields. This save some ram (248 bytes per task) as most tasks dont open more than 32 files. D-Cache footprint for such tasks is also reduced to the minimum. 3) Reduce size of allocated fdset. Currently two full pages are allocated, that is 32768 bits on x86 for example, and way too much. The minimum is now L1_CACHE_BYTES. UP and SMP should benefit from this patch, because most tasks will touch only one cache line when open()/close() stdin/stdout/stderr (0/1/2), (next_fd, close_on_exec_init, open_fds_init, fd_array[0 .. 2] being in the same cache line) Signed-off-by: Eric Dumazet <dada1@cosmosbay.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2006-02-03[PATCH] fcntl F_SETFL and read-only IS_APPEND filesdean gaudet
There is code in setfl() which attempts to preserve the O_APPEND flag on IS_APPEND files... however IS_APPEND files could also be opened O_RDONLY and in that case setfl() should not require O_APPEND... coreutils 5.93 tail -f attempts to set O_NONBLOCK even on regular files... unfortunately if you try this on an append-only log file the result is this: fcntl64(3, F_GETFL) = 0x8000 (flags O_RDONLY|O_LARGEFILE) fcntl64(3, F_SETFL, O_RDONLY|O_NONBLOCK|O_LARGEFILE) = -1 EPERM (Operation not permitted) I offer up the patch below as one way of fixing the problem... i've tested it fixes the problem with tail -f but haven't really tested beyond that.

2005-09-09[PATCH] files: lock-free fd look-upDipankar Sarma
With the use of RCU in files structure, the look-up of files using fds can now be lock-free. The lookup is protected by rcu_read_lock()/rcu_read_unlock(). This patch changes the readers to use lock-free lookup.

2005-09-09[PATCH] files: files struct with RCUDipankar Sarma
Patch to eliminate struct files_struct.file_lock spinlock on the reader side and use rcu refcounting rcuref_xxx api for the f_count refcounter. The updates to the fdtable are done by allocating a new fdtable structure and setting files->fdt to point to the new structure. The fdtable structure is protected by RCU thereby allowing lock-free lookup. For fd arrays/sets that are vmalloced, we use keventd to free them since RCU callbacks can't sleep. A global list of fdtable to be freed is not scalable, so we use a per-cpu list. If keventd is already handling the current cpu's work, we use a timer to defer queueing of that work. Since the last publication, this patch has been re-written to avoid using explicit memory barriers and use rcu_assign_pointer(), rcu_dereference() premitives instead. This required that the fd information is kept in a separate structure (fdtable) and updated atomically.
