2012-12-19block: prevent race/cleanupDerek Basehore
Remove a race condition which causes a warning in disk_clear_events. This is a race between disk_clear_events() and disk_flush_events(). ev->clearing will be altered by disk_flush_events() even though we are blocking event checking through disk_flush_events(). If this happens after ev->clearing was cleared for disk_clear_events(), this can cause the WARN_ON_ONCE() in that function to be triggered. This change also has disk_clear_events() not go through a workqueue. Since we have to wait for the work to complete, we should just call the function directly. Also, since this work cannot be put on a freezable workqueue, it will have to contend with increased demand, so calling the function directly avoids this.

2012-12-19block: remove deadlock in disk_clear_eventsDerek Basehore
In disk_clear_events, do not put work on system_nrt_freezable_wq. Instead, put it on system_nrt_wq. There is a race between probing a usb and suspending the device. Since probing a usb calls disk_clear_events, which puts work on a frozen workqueue, probing cannot finish after the workqueue is frozen. However, suspending cannot finish until the usb probe is finished, so we get a deadlock, causing the system to reboot. The way to reproduce this bug is to wake up from suspend with a usb storage device plugged in, or plugging in a usb storage device right before suspend. The window of time is on the order of time it takes to probe the usb device. As long as the workqueues are frozen before the call to add_disk within sd_probe_async finishes, there will be a deadlock (which calls blkdev_get, sd_open, check_disk_change, then disk_clear_events). This is not difficult to reproduce after figuring out the timings.

The big changes are focused on making cgroup hierarchy handling saner. - cgroup_rmdir() had peculiar semantics - it allowed cgroup destruction to be vetoed by individual controllers and tried to drain refcnt synchronously.

Michal Hocko removed the usage and cgroup_rmdir() path has been simplified significantly. This was done in a separate branch so that the memcg people can base further memcg changes on top. - The above allowed cleaning up cgroup lifecycle management and implementation of generic cgroup iterators which are used to improve hierarchy support. - cgroup_freezer updated to allow migration in and out of a frozen cgroup and handle hierarchy.

The Kconfig currently enables MSDOS partitions by default because they are assumed to be essential, but it's necessary to enable "advanced partition selection" in order to get GPT support. IMO GPT partitions are becoming common enought to deserve the same treatment MSDOS partitions get. (Side note: I got bit by a disk that had MSDOS and GPT partition tables, but for some reason the MSDOS table was different from the GPT one. I was stupid enought to disable "advanced partition selection" in my .config, which disabled GPT partitioning and made my btrfs pool unbootable because it couldn't find the partitions) Signed-off-by: Diego Calleja <diegocg@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <axboe@kernel.dk>

2012-12-06block: Make blk_cleanup_queue() wait until request_fn finishedBart Van Assche
Some request_fn implementations, e.g. scsi_request_fn(), unlock the queue lock internally. This may result in multiple threads executing request_fn for the same queue simultaneously. Keep track of the number of active request_fn calls and make sure that blk_cleanup_queue() waits until all active request_fn invocations have finished. A block driver may start cleaning up resources needed by its request_fn as soon as blk_cleanup_queue() finished, so blk_cleanup_queue() must wait for all outstanding request_fn invocations to finish.

2012-12-06block: Avoid scheduling delayed work on a dead queueBart Van Assche
Running a queue must continue after it has been marked dying until it has been marked dead. So the function blk_run_queue_async() must not schedule delayed work after blk_cleanup_queue() has marked a queue dead. Hence add a test for that queue state in blk_run_queue_async() and make sure that queue_unplugged() invokes that function with the queue lock held. This avoids that the queue state can change after it has been tested and before mod_delayed_work() is invoked. Drop the queue dying test in queue_unplugged() since it is now superfluous: __blk_run_queue() already tests whether or not the queue is dead.

2012-12-06block: Avoid that request_fn is invoked on a dead queueBart Van Assche
A block driver may start cleaning up resources needed by its request_fn as soon as blk_cleanup_queue() finished, so request_fn must not be invoked after draining finished. This is important when blk_run_queue() is invoked without any requests in progress. As an example, if blk_drain_queue() and scsi_run_queue() run in parallel, blk_drain_queue() may have finished all requests after scsi_run_queue() has taken a SCSI device off the starved list but before that last function has had a chance to run the queue.

2012-12-06block: Rename queue dead flagBart Van Assche
QUEUE_FLAG_DEAD is used to indicate that queuing new requests must stop. After this flag has been set queue draining starts. However, during the queue draining phase it is still safe to invoke the queue's request_fn, so QUEUE_FLAG_DYING is a better name for this flag. This patch has been generated by running the following command over the kernel source tree: git grep -lEw 'blk_queue_dead|QUEUE_FLAG_DEAD' | xargs sed -i.tmp -e 's/blk_queue_dead/blk_queue_dying/g' \ -e 's/QUEUE_FLAG_DEAD/QUEUE_FLAG_DYING/g'; \ sed -i.tmp -e "s/QUEUE_FLAG_DYING$(printf \\t)*5/QUEUE_FLAG_DYING$(printf \\t)5/g" \ include/linux/blkdev.h; \ sed -i.tmp -e 's/ DEAD/ DYING/g' -e 's/dead queue/a dying queue/' \ -e 's/Dead queue/A dying queue/' block/blk-core.c Signed-off-by: Bart Van Assche <bvanassche@acm.org> Acked-by: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org> Cc: James Bottomley <JBottomley@Parallels.com> Cc: Mike Christie <michaelc@cs.wisc.edu> Cc: Jens Axboe <axboe@kernel.dk> Cc: Chanho Min <chanho.min@lge.com> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <axboe@kernel.dk>
2012-11-23block: Don't access request after it might be freedRoland Dreier
After we've done __elv_add_request() and __blk_run_queue() in blk_execute_rq_nowait(), the request might finish and be freed immediately. Therefore checking if the type is REQ_TYPE_PM_RESUME isn't safe afterwards, because if it isn't, rq might be gone. Instead, check beforehand and stash the result in a temporary. This fixes crashes in blk_execute_rq_nowait() I get occasionally when running with lots of memory debugging options enabled -- I think this race is usually harmless because the window for rq to be reallocated is so small.

When combined with a partition number within the table, this can form a unique ID similar in concept to EFI/GPT's partition UUID.

2012-11-23block: store partition_meta_info.uuid as a stringStephen Warren
This will allow other types of UUID to be stored here, aside from true UUIDs. This also simplifies code that uses this field, since it's usually constructed from a, used as a, or compared to other, strings. Note: A simplistic approach here would be to set uuid_str[36]=0 whenever a /PARTNROFF option was found to be present. However, this modifies the input string, and causes subsequent calls to devt_from_partuuid() not to see the /PARTNROFF option, which causes different results. In order to avoid misleading future maintainers, this parameter is marked const.

request is queued in cfqq->fifo list. Looks it's possible we are moving a request from one cfqq to another in request merge case. In such case, adjusting the fifo list order doesn't make sense and is impossible if we don't iterate the whole fifo list. My test does hit one case the two cfqq are different, but didn't cause kernel crash, maybe it's because fifo list isn't used frequently. Anyway, from the code logic, this is buggy.

__blk_queue_next_rl() finds next request list based on blkg_list while skipping root_blkg in the list. OTOH, root_rl is special as it may exist even without root_blkg. Though the later part of the function handles such a case correctly, exiting early is good for readability of the code.

2012-10-22blkcg: Fix use-after-free of q->root_blkg and q->root_rl.blkgJun'ichi Nomura
blk_put_rl() does not call blkg_put() for q->root_rl because we don't take request list reference on q->root_blkg. However, if root_blkg is once attached then detached (freed), blk_put_rl() is confused by the bogus pointer in q->root_blkg.

Pull workqueue changes from Tejun Heo: "This is workqueue updates for v3.7-rc1. A lot of activities this round including considerable API and behavior cleanups. * delayed_work combines a timer and a work item. The handling of the timer part has always been a bit clunky leading to confusing cancelation API with weird corner-case behaviors. delayed_work is updated to use new IRQ safe timer and cancelation now works as expected. * Another deficiency of delayed_work was lack of the counterpart of mod_timer() which led to cancel+queue combinations or open-coded timer+work usages. mod_delayed_work[_on]() are added. These two delayed_work changes make delayed_work provide interface and behave like timer which is executed with process context. * A work item could be executed concurrently on multiple CPUs, which is rather unintuitive and made flush_work() behavior confusing and half-broken under certain circumstances. This problem doesn't exist for non-reentrant workqueues. While non-reentrancy check isn't free, the overhead is incurred only when a work item bounces across different CPUs and even in simulated pathological scenario the overhead isn't too high. All workqueues are made non-reentrant. This removes the distinction between flush_[delayed_]work() and flush_[delayed_]_work_sync(). The former is now as strong as the latter and the specified work item is guaranteed to have finished execution of any previous queueing on return. * In addition to the various bug fixes, Lai redid and simplified CPU hotplug handling significantly. * Joonsoo introduced system_highpri_wq and used it during CPU hotplug. There are two merge commits - one to pull in IRQ safe timer from tip/timers/core and the other to pull in CPU hotplug fixes from wq/for-3.6-fixes as Lai's hotplug restructuring depended on them." Fixed a number of trivial conflicts, but the more interesting conflicts were silent ones where the deprecated interfaces had been used by new code in the merge window, and thus didn't cause any real data conflicts.

2012-09-26s390/partitions: make partition detection independent from DASD ioctlsStefan Weinhuber
In some usage scenarios it is desireable to work with disk images or virtualized DASD devices. One problem that prevents such applications is the partition detection in ibm.c. Currently it works only for devices that support the BIODASDINFO2 ioctl, in other words, it only works for devices that belong to the DASD device driver. The information gained from the BIODASDINFO2 ioctl is only for a small set of legacy cases abolutely necessary. All current VOL1, LNX1 and CMS1 type of disk labels can be interpreted correctly without this information, as long as the generic HDIO_GETGEO ioctl works and provides a correct disk geometry. This patch makes the ibm.c partition detection as independent as possible from the BIODASDINFO2 ioctl. Only the following two cases are still restricted to real DASDs: - An FBA DASD, or LDL formatted ECKD DASD without any disk label. - An old style LNX1 label (without large volume support) on a disk with inconsistent device geometry.

2012-09-21block: lift the initial queue bypass mode on blk_register_queue() instead of ↵Tejun Heo
blk_init_allocated_queue() b82d4b197c ("blkcg: make request_queue bypassing on allocation") made request_queues bypassed on allocation to avoid switching on and off bypass mode on a queue being initialized. Some drivers allocate and then destroy a lot of queues without fully initializing them and incurring bypass latency overhead on each of them could add upto significant overhead. Unfortunately, blk_init_allocated_queue() is never used by queues of bio-based drivers, which means that all bio-based driver queues are in bypass mode even after initialization and registration complete successfully. Due to the limited way request_queues are used by bio drivers, this problem is hidden pretty well but it shows up when blk-throttle is used in combination with a bio-based driver. Trying to configure (echoing to cgroupfs file) blk-throttle for a bio-based driver hangs indefinitely in blkg_conf_prep() waiting for bypass mode to end. This patch moves the initial blk_queue_bypass_end() call from blk_init_allocated_queue() to blk_register_queue() which is called for any userland-visible queues regardless of its type. I believe this is correct because I don't think there is any block driver which needs or wants working elevator and blk-cgroup on a queue which isn't visible to userland. If there are such users, we need a different solution.

2012-09-14cgroup: mark subsystems with broken hierarchy support and whine if cgroups ↵Tejun Heo
are nested for them Currently, cgroup hierarchy support is a mess. cpu related subsystems behave correctly - configuration, accounting and control on a parent properly cover its children. blkio and freezer completely ignore hierarchy and treat all cgroups as if they're directly under the root cgroup. Others show yet different behaviors. These differing interpretations of cgroup hierarchy make using cgroup confusing and it impossible to co-mount controllers into the same hierarchy and obtain sane behavior. Eventually, we want full hierarchy support from all subsystems and probably a unified hierarchy. Users using separate hierarchies expecting completely different behaviors depending on the mounted subsystem is deterimental to making any progress on this front. This patch adds cgroup_subsys.broken_hierarchy and sets it to %true for controllers which are lacking in hierarchy support. The goal of this patch is two-fold. * Move users away from using hierarchy on currently non-hierarchical subsystems, so that implementing proper hierarchy support on those doesn't surprise them. * Keep track of which controllers are broken how and nudge the subsystems to implement proper hierarchy support. For now, start with a single warning message. We can whine louder later on. v2: Fixed a typo spotted by Michal. Warning message updated. v3: Updated memcg part so that it doesn't generate warning in the cases where .use_hierarchy=false doesn't make the behavior different from root.use_hierarchy=true. Fixed a typo spotted by Glauber. v4: Check ->broken_hierarchy after cgroup creation is complete so that ->create() can affect the result per Michal.

The semantic patch that finds this problem is as follows: (http://coccinelle.lip6.fr/) // <smpl> @r exists@ position p1,p2; expression x; @@ if (x@p1 == NULL) { ... kfree@p2(x); ... return ...; } @unchanged exists@ position r.p1,r.p2; expression e <= r.x,x,e1; iterator I; statement S; @@ if (x@p1 == NULL) { ... when != I(x,...)

2012-09-09block: remove the duplicated setting for congestion_thresholdJaehoon Chung
Before call the blk_queue_congestion_threshold(), the blk_queue_congestion_threshold() is already called at blk_queue_make_rquest(). Because this code is the duplicated, it has removed.

2012-09-09block: reject invalid queue attribute valuesDave Reisner
Instead of using simple_strtoul which "converts" invalid numbers to 0, use strict_strtoul and perform error checking to ensure that userspace passes us a valid unsigned long. This addresses problems with functions such as writev, which might want to write a trailing newline -- the newline should rightfully be rejected, but the value preceeding it should be preserved.

2012-09-09block: Add bio_clone_bioset(), bio_clone_kmalloc()Kent Overstreet
Previously, there was bio_clone() but it only allocated from the fs bio set; as a result various users were open coding it and using __bio_clone(). This changes bio_clone() to become bio_clone_bioset(), and then we add bio_clone() and bio_clone_kmalloc() as wrappers around it, making use of the functionality the last patch adedd. This will also help in a later patch changing how bio cloning works.

2012-09-09block: Kill bi_destructorKent Overstreet
Now that we've got generic code for freeing bios allocated from bio pools, this isn't needed anymore. This patch also makes bio_free() static, since without bi_destructor there should be no need for it to be called anywhere else. bio_free() is now only called from bio_put, so we can refactor those a bit - move some code from bio_put() to bio_free() and kill the redundant bio->bi_next = NULL. v5: Switch to BIO_KMALLOC_POOL ((void *)~0), per Boaz v6: BIO_KMALLOC_POOL now NULL, drop bio_free's EXPORT_SYMBOL v7: No #define BIO_KMALLOC_POOL anymore Signed-off-by: Kent Overstreet <koverstreet@google.com> CC: Jens Axboe <axboe@kernel.dk> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <axboe@kernel.dk>
