2013-01-21drbd: fix potential protocol error and resulting disconnect/reconnectLars Ellenberg
When we notice a disk failure on the receiving side, we stop sending it new incoming writes. Depending on exact timing of various events, the same transfer log epoch could end up containing both replicated (before we noticed the failure) and local-only requests (after we noticed the failure). The sanity checks in tl_release(), called when receiving a P_BARRIER_ACK, check that the ack'ed transfer log epoch matches the expected epoch, and the number of contained writes matches the number of ack'ed writes. In this case, they counted both replicated and local-only writes, but the peer only acknowledges those it has seen. We get a mismatch, resulting in a protocol error and disconnect/reconnect cycle. Messages logged are "BAD! BarrierAck #%u received with n_writes=%u, expected n_writes=%u!\n" A similar issue can also be triggered when starting a resync while having a healthy replication link, by invalidating one side, forcing a full sync, or attaching to a diskless node. Fix this by closing the current epoch if the state changes in a way that would cause the replication intent of the next write. Epochs now contain either only non-replicated, or only replicated writes. Signed-off-by: Philipp Reisner <philipp.reisner@linbit.com> Signed-off-by: Lars Ellenberg <lars.ellenberg@linbit.com>

2013-01-02virtio-blk: Don't free ida when disk is in useAlexander Graf
When a file system is mounted on a virtio-blk disk, we then remove it and then reattach it, the reattached disk gets the same disk name and ids as the hot removed one. This leads to very nasty effects - mostly rendering the newly attached device completely unusable. Trying what happens when I do the same thing with a USB device, I saw that the sd node simply doesn't get free'd when a device gets forcefully removed. Imitate the same behavior for vd devices. This way broken vd devices simply are never free'd and newly attached ones keep working just fine.

2012-12-17xen-blkfront: handle bvecs with partial dataRoger Pau Monne
Currently blkfront fails to handle cases in blkif_completion like the following: 1st loop in rq_for_each_segment * bv_offset: 3584 * bv_len: 512 * offset += bv_len * i: 0 2nd loop: * bv_offset: 0 * bv_len: 512 * i: 0 In the second loop i should be 1, since we assume we only wanted to read a part of the previous page. This patches fixes this cases where only a part of the shared page is read, and blkif_completion assumes that if the bv_offset of a bvec is less than the previous bv_offset plus the bv_size we have to switch to the next shared page.

2012-12-17aoe: allow comma separator in aoe_iflist valueEd Cashin
By default, the aoe driver uses any ethernet interface for AoE, but the aoe_iflist module parameter provides a convenient way to limit AoE traffic to a specific list of local network interfaces. This change allows a list to be specified using the comma character as a separator. For example, modprobe aoe aoe_iflist=eth2,eth3 Before, it was inconvenient to get the quoting right in shell scripts when setting aoe_iflist to have more than one network interface.

2012-12-17aoe: allow user to disable target failure timeoutEd Cashin
With this change, the aoe driver treats the value zero as special for the aoe_deadsecs module parameter. Normally, this value specifies the number of seconds during which the driver will continue to attempt retransmits to an unresponsive AoE target. After aoe_deadsecs has elapsed, the aoe driver marks the aoe device as "down" and fails all I/O. The new meaning of an aoe_deadsecs of zero is for the driver to retransmit commands indefinitely.

2012-12-17aoe: avoid races between device destruction and discoveryEd Cashin
This change avoids a race that could result in a NULL pointer derference following a WARNing from kobject_add_internal, "don't try to register things with the same name in the same directory." The problem was found with a test that forgets and discovers an aoe device in a loop: while test ! -r /tmp/stop; do aoe-flush -a aoe-discover done The race was between aoedev_flush taking aoedevs out of the devlist, allowing a new discovery of the same AoE target to take place before the driver gets around to calling sysfs_remove_group. Fixing that one revealed another race between do_open and add_disk, and this patch avoids that, too. The fix required some care, because for flushing (forgetting) an aoedev, some of the steps must be performed under lock and some must be able to sleep. Also, for discovering a new aoedev, some steps might sleep. The check for a bad aoedev pointer remains from a time when about half of this patch was done, and it was possible for the bdev->bd_disk->private_data to become corrupted. The check should be removed eventually, but it is not expected to add significant overhead, occurring in the aoeblk_open routine.

2012-12-17aoe: improve handling of misbehaving network pathsEd Cashin
An AoE target can have multiple network ports used for AoE, and in the aoe driver, those are tracked by the aoetgt struct. These changes allow the aoe driver to handle network paths, or aoetgts, that are not working well, compared to the others. Paths that do not get responses despite the retransmission of AoE commands are marked as "tainted", and non-tainted paths are preferred. Meanwhile, the aoe driver attempts to "probe" the tainted path in the background by issuing reads of LBA 0 that are padded out to full (possibly jumbo-frame) size. If the probes get responses, then the path is "redeemed", and its taint is removed. This mechanism has been shown to be helpful in transparently handling and recovering from real-world network "brown outs" in ways that the earlier "shoot the help-needing target in the head" mechanism could not.

2012-12-17aoe: return real minor number for static minorsEd Cashin
The value returned by the static minor device number number allocator is the real minor number, so it must be multiplied by the supported number of partitions per aoedev.

2012-12-17aoe: remove vestigial request queue allocationEd Cashin
Before the aoe driver was an I/O request handler, it was a make_request-style block driver. Even so, there was a problem where sysfs expected a request queue to exist, so one was provided in commit 7135a71b19be ("aoe: allocate unused request_queue for sysfs"). During the transition to the request-handler style, a patch was merged that was based on a driver without the noop queue, and the noop queue remained in place after the patch was merged, even though a new functional queue was introduced by the patch, allocated through blk_init_queue. The user impact is a memory leak proportional to the number of AoE targets discovered.

2012-12-17aoe: copy fallback timing information on destination failoverEd Cashin
Commit f3b8e07af774 ("aoe: commands in retransmit queue use new destination on failure") omits the copying of the coarse-grained time when an AoE command was sent during the failover from one destination MAC address on the AoE target to another. The coarse-grained timing is only used when the system time changes or an unlikely length of time has passed since the sending of the AoE command. Users will not be impacted unless their system clock is very inaccurate or something unusual (e.g., 10 GbE link reset) happens during the period when the aoe driver is handling the failure of a port on the AoE target. Being effected will mean that an AoE target could be considered "down" too eagerly.

2012-12-17aoe: commands in retransmit queue use new destination on failureEd Cashin
When one remote MAC address isn't working as a destination for AoE commands, the frames used to track information associated with the AoE commands are moved to a new aoetgt (defined by the tuple of {AoE major, AoE minor, target MAC address}). This patch makes sure that the frames on the queue for retransmits that need to be done are updated to use the new destination, so that retransmits will be sent through a working network path. Without this change, packets on the retransmit queue will be needlessly retransmitted to the unresponsive destination MAC, possibly causing premature target failure before there's time for the retransmit timer to run again, decide to retransmit again, and finally update the destination to a working MAC address on the AoE target.

2012-12-17aoe: use high-resolution RTTs with fallback to low-resEd Cashin
These changes improve the accuracy of the decision about whether it's time to retransmit an AoE command by using the microsecond-resolution gettimeofday instead of jiffies. Because the system time can jump suddenly, the decision reverts to using jiffies if the high-resolution time difference is relatively large. Otherwise the AoE targets could be considered failed inappropriately.

2012-12-17aoe: manipulate aoedev network stats under lockEd Cashin
With this bugfix in place the calculation of the criterion for "lateness" is performed under lock. Without the lock, there is a chance that one of the non-atomic operations performed on the round trip time statistics could be incomplete, such that an incorrect lateness criterion would be calculated. Without this change, the effect of the bug would be rare unecessary but benign retransmissions.

2012-12-17aoe: err device: include MAC addresses for unexpected responsesEd Cashin
The /dev/etherd/err character device provides low-level information about normal but sometimes interesting AoE command retransmits and "unexpected responses", i.e., responses for packets that have already been retransmitted. This change adds MAC addresses to the messages about unexpected responses, so that when they occur, it's more easy to determine the network paths to which they belong.

2012-12-17aoe: improve network congestion handlingEd Cashin
The aoe driver already had some congestion handling, but it was limited in its ability to cope with the kind of congestion that can arise on more complex networks such as those involving paths through multiple ethernet switches. Some of the lessons from TCP's history of development can be applied to improving the congestion control and avoidance on AoE storage networks. These changes use familar concepts from Van Jacobson's "Congestion Avoidance and Control" paper from '88, without adding significant overhead. This patch depends on an upcoming patch that covers the failover case when AoE commands being retransmitted are transferred from one retransmit queue to another. Another upcoming patch increases the timing accuracy.
