If prepare_reply() succeeds we have allocated memory for 'rep_skb'. If nla_reserve() then subsequently fails and returns NULL we fail to release the memory we allocated, thus causing a leak.

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/viro/vfs Pull vfs update from Al Viro: - big one - consolidation of descriptor-related logics; almost all of that is moved to fs/file.c (BTW, I'm seriously tempted to rename the result to fd.c. As it is, we have a situation when file_table.c is about handling of struct file and file.c is about handling of descriptor tables; the reasons are historical - file_table.c used to be about a static array of struct file we used to have way back). A lot of stray ends got cleaned up and converted to saner primitives, disgusting mess in android/binder.c is still disgusting, but at least doesn't poke so much in descriptor table guts anymore. A bunch of relatively minor races got fixed in process, plus an ext4 struct file leak. - related thing - fget_light() partially unuglified; see fdget() in there (and yes, it generates the code as good as we used to have). - also related - bits of Cyrill's procfs stuff that got entangled into that work; _not_ all of it, just the initial move to fs/proc/fd.c and switch of fdinfo to seq_file. - Alex's fs/coredump.c spiltoff - the same story, had been easier to take that commit than mess with conflicts. The rest is a separate pile, this was just a mechanical code movement. - a few misc patches all over the place.

2011-06-27taskstats: don't allow duplicate entries in listener modeVasiliy Kulikov
Currently a single process may register exit handlers unlimited times. It may lead to a bloated listeners chain and very slow process terminations. Eg after 10KK sent TASKSTATS_CMD_ATTR_REGISTER_CPUMASKs ~300 Mb of kernel memory is stolen for the handlers chain and "time id" shows 2-7 seconds instead of normal 0.003. It makes it possible to exhaust all kernel memory and to eat much of CPU time by triggerring numerous exits on a single CPU. The patch limits the number of times a single process may register itself on a single CPU to one. One little issue is kept unfixed - as taskstats_exit() is called before exit_files() in do_exit(), the orphaned listener entry (if it was not explicitly deregistered) is kept until the next someone's exit() and implicit deregistration in send_cpu_listeners(). So, if a process registered itself as a listener exits and the next spawned process gets the same pid, it would inherit taskstats attributes.

2011-01-13taskstats: use better ifdef for alignmentJeff Mahoney
Commit 4be2c95d ("taskstats: pad taskstats netlink response for aligment issues on ia64") added a null field to align the taskstats structure but the discussion centered around ia64. The issue exists on other platforms with inefficient unaligned access and adding them piecemeal would be an unmaintainable mess. This patch uses Dave Miller's suggestion of using a combination of CONFIG_64BIT && !CONFIG_HAVE_EFFICIENT_UNALIGNED_ACCESS to determine whether alignment is needed. Note that this will cause breakage on those platforms with applications like iotop which had hard-coded offsets into the packet to access the taskstats structure. The message seen on systems without the alignment fixes looks like: kernel unaligned access to 0xe000023879dca9bc, ip=0xa000000100133d10 The addresses may vary but resolve to locations inside __delayacct_add_tsk. iotop makes what I'd call unreasonable assumptions about the contents of a netlink genetlink packet containing generic attributes. They're typed and have headers that specify value lengths, so the client can (should) identify and skip the ones the client doesn't understand. The kernel, as of version 2.6.36, presented a packet like so: +--------------------------------+ | genlmsghdr - 4 bytes | +--------------------------------+ | NLA header - 4 bytes | /* Aggregate header */ +-+------------------------------+ | | NLA header - 4 bytes | /* PID header */ | +------------------------------+ | | pid/tgid - 4 bytes | | +------------------------------+ | | NLA header - 4 bytes | /* stats header */ | + -----------------------------+ <- oops. aligned on 4 byte boundary | | struct taskstats - 328 bytes | +-+------------------------------+ The iotop code expects that the kernel will behave as it did then, assuming that the packet format is set in stone. The format is set in stone, but the packet offsets are not. There's nothing in the packet format that guarantees that the packet will be sent in exactly the same way. The attribute contents are set (or versioned) and the aggregate contents are set but they can be anywhere in the packet. The issue here isn't that an unaligned structure gets passed to userspace, it's that the NLA infrastructure has something of a weakness: The 4 byte attribute header may force the payload to be unaligned. The taskstats structure is created at an unaligned location and then 64-bit values are operated on inside the kernel, so the unaligned access warnings gets spewed everywhere. It's possible to use the unaligned access API to operate on the structure in the kernel but it seems like a wasted effort to work around userspace code that isn't following the packet format. Any new additions would also need the be worked around. It's a maintenance nightmare. The conclusion of the earlier discussion seemed to be "ok fine, if we have to break it, don't break it on arches that don't have the problem." Dave pointed out that the unaligned access problem doesn't only exist on ia64, but also on other 64-bit arches that don't have efficient unaligned access and it should be fixed there as well. The committed version of the patch and this addition keep with the conclusion of that discussion not to break it unnecessarily, which the pid padding and the packet padding fixes did do. x86_64 and powerpc don't suffer this problem so they shouldn't suffer the solution. Other 64-bit architectures do and will, though. Signed-off-by: Jeff Mahoney <jeffm@suse.com> Reported-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net> Acked-by: David S.

2010-12-22taskstats: pad taskstats netlink response for aligment issues on ia64Jeff Mahoney
The taskstats structure is internally aligned on 8 byte boundaries but the layout of the aggregrate reply, with two NLA headers and the pid (each 4 bytes), actually force the entire structure to be unaligned. This causes the kernel to issue unaligned access warnings on some architectures like ia64. Unfortunately, some software out there doesn't properly unroll the NLA packet and assumes that the start of the taskstats structure will always be 20 bytes from the start of the netlink payload. Aligning the start of the taskstats structure breaks this software, which we don't want. So, for now the alignment only happens on architectures that require it and those users will have to update to fixed versions of those packages. Space is reserved in the packet only when needed. This ifdef should be removed in several years e.g. 2012 once we can be confident that fixed versions are installed on most systems. We add the padding before the aggregate since the aggregate is already a defined type. Commit 85893120 ("delayacct: align to 8 byte boundary on 64-bit systems") previously addressed the alignment issues by padding out the pid field. This was supposed to be a compatible change but the circumstances described above mean that it wasn't. This patch backs out that change, since it was a hack, and introduces a new NULL attribute type to provide the padding. Padding the response with 4 bytes avoids allocating an aligned taskstats structure and copying it back. Since the structure weighs in at 328 bytes, it's too big to do it on the stack.

2010-03-30include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking ↵Tejun Heo
implicit slab.h inclusion from percpu.h percpu.h is included by sched.h and module.h and thus ends up being included when building most .c files. percpu.h includes slab.h which in turn includes gfp.h making everything defined by the two files universally available and complicating inclusion dependencies. percpu.h -> slab.h dependency is about to be removed. Prepare for this change by updating users of gfp and slab facilities include those headers directly instead of assuming availability. As this conversion needs to touch large number of source files, the following script is used as the basis of conversion. http://userweb.kernel.org/~tj/misc/slabh-sweep.py The script does the followings. * Scan files for gfp and slab usages and update includes such that only the necessary includes are there. ie. if only gfp is used, gfp.h, if slab is used, slab.h. * When the script inserts a new include, it looks at the include blocks and try to put the new include such that its order conforms to its surrounding. It's put in the include block which contains core kernel includes, in the same order that the rest are ordered - alphabetical, Christmas tree, rev-Xmas-tree or at the end if there doesn't seem to be any matching order. * If the script can't find a place to put a new include (mostly because the file doesn't have fitting include block), it prints out an error message indicating which .h file needs to be added to the file. The conversion was done in the following steps. 1. The initial automatic conversion of all .c files updated slightly over 4000 files, deleting around 700 includes and adding ~480 gfp.h and ~3000 slab.h inclusions. The script emitted errors for ~400 files. 2. Each error was manually checked. Some didn't need the inclusion, some needed manual addition while adding it to implementation .h or embedding .c file was more appropriate for others. This step added inclusions to around 150 files. 3. The script was run again and the output was compared to the edits from #2 to make sure no file was left behind. 4. Several build tests were done and a couple of problems were fixed. e.g. lib/decompress_*.c used malloc/free() wrappers around slab APIs requiring slab.h to be added manually. 5. The script was run on all .h files but without automatically editing them as sprinkling gfp.h and slab.h inclusions around .h files could easily lead to inclusion dependency hell. Most gfp.h inclusion directives were ignored as stuff from gfp.h was usually wildly available and often used in preprocessor macros. Each slab.h inclusion directive was examined and added manually as necessary. 6. percpu.h was updated not to include slab.h. 7. Build test were done on the following configurations and failures were fixed. CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL was turned off for all tests (as my distributed build env didn't work with gcov compiles) and a few more options had to be turned off depending on archs to make things build (like ipr on powerpc/64 which failed due to missing writeq). * x86 and x86_64 UP and SMP allmodconfig and a custom test config. * powerpc and powerpc64 SMP allmodconfig * sparc and sparc64 SMP allmodconfig * ia64 SMP allmodconfig * s390 SMP allmodconfig * alpha SMP allmodconfig * um on x86_64 SMP allmodconfig 8. percpu.h modifications were reverted so that it could be applied as a separate patch and serve as bisection point. Given the fact that I had only a couple of failures from tests on step 6, I'm fairly confident about the coverage of this conversion patch. If there is a breakage, it's likely to be something in one of the arch headers which should be easily discoverable easily on most builds of the specific arch.

2009-07-12genetlink: make netns awareJohannes Berg
This makes generic netlink network namespace aware. No generic netlink families except for the controller family are made namespace aware, they need to be checked one by one and then set the family->netnsok member to true. A new function genlmsg_multicast_netns() is introduced to allow sending a multicast message in a given namespace, for example when it applies to an object that lives in that namespace, a new function genlmsg_multicast_allns() to send a message to all network namespaces (for objects that do not have an associated netns). The function genlmsg_multicast() is changed to multicast the message in just init_net, which is currently correct for all generic netlink families since they only work in init_net right now. Some will later want to work in all net namespaces because they do not care about the netns at all -- those will have to be converted to use one of the new functions genlmsg_multicast_allns() or genlmsg_multicast_netns() whenever they are made netns aware in some way. After this patch families can easily decide whether or not they should be available in all net namespaces. Many genl families us it for objects not related to networking and should therefore be available in all namespaces, but that will have to be done on a per family basis. Note that this doesn't touch on the checkpoint/restart problem where network namespaces could be used, genl families and multicast groups are numbered globally and I see no easy way of changing that, especially since it must be possible to multicast to all network namespaces for those families that do not care about netns.

2008-04-30Use find_task_by_vpid in taskstatsPavel Emelyanov
The pid to lookup a task by is passed inside taskstats code via genetlink message. Since netlink packets are now processed in the context of the sending task, this is correct to lookup the task with find_task_by_vpid() here. Besides, I fix the call to fill_pid() from taskstats_exit(), since the tsk->pid is not required in fill_pid() in this case, and the pid field on task_struct is going to be deprecated as well.

2007-10-19Add cgroupstatsBalbir Singh
This patch is inspired by the discussion at http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/4/11/187 and implements per cgroup statistics as suggested by Andrew Morton in http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/4/11/263. The patch is on top of 2.6.21-mm1 with Paul's cgroups v9 patches (forward ported) This patch implements per cgroup statistics infrastructure and re-uses code from the taskstats interface. A new set of cgroup operations are registered with commands and attributes. It should be very easy to *extend* per cgroup statistics, by adding members to the cgroupstats structure. The current model for cgroupstats is a pull, a push model (to post statistics on interesting events), should be very easy to add. Currently user space requests for statistics by passing the cgroup file descriptor. Statistics about the state of all the tasks in the cgroup is returned to user space. TODO's/NOTE: This patch provides an infrastructure for implementing cgroup statistics. Based on the needs of each controller, we can incrementally add more statistics, event based support for notification of statistics, accumulation of taskstats into cgroup statistics in the future. Sample output # ./cgroupstats -C /cgroup/a sleeping 2, blocked 0, running 1, stopped 0, uninterruptible 0 # ./cgroupstats -C /cgroup/ sleeping 154, blocked 0, running 0, stopped 0, uninterruptible 0 If the approach looks good, I'll enhance and post the user space utility for the same Feedback, comments, test results are always welcome!

2007-05-07KMEM_CACHE(): simplify slab cache creationChristoph Lameter
This patch provides a new macro KMEM_CACHE(<struct>, <flags>) to simplify slab creation. KMEM_CACHE creates a slab with the name of the struct, with the size of the struct and with the alignment of the struct. Additional slab flags may be specified if necessary. Example struct test_slab { int a,b,c; struct list_head; } __cacheline_aligned_in_smp; test_slab_cache = KMEM_CACHE(test_slab, SLAB_PANIC) will create a new slab named "test_slab" of the size sizeof(struct test_slab) and aligned to the alignment of test slab.

This is a kernel bug, we should not hide it. So add 'BUG()' on error path and check for 'na == NULL'. > genlmsg_cancel() is only required in error paths for dumping > procedures. So we can remove 'genlmsg_cancel()' calls and 'void *reply' (saves 227 bytes).

2006-12-07[PATCH] taskstats: use nla_reserve() for reply assemblingOleg Nesterov
Currently taskstats_user_cmd()/taskstats_exit() do: 1) allocate stats 2) fill stats 3) make a temporary copy on stack (236 bytes) 4) copy that copy to skb 5) free stats With the help of nla_reserve() we can operate on skb->data directly, thus avoiding all these steps except 2). So, before this patch: // copy *stats to skb->data int mk_reply(skb, ..., struct taskstats *stats); fill_pid(stats); mk_reply(skb, ..., stats); After: // return a pointer to skb->data struct taskstats *mk_reply(skb, ...); stat = mk_reply(skb, ...); fill_pid(stats); Shrinks taskatsks.o by 162 bytes. A stupid benchmark (send one million TASKSTATS_CMD_ATTR_PID) shows the real user sys before: 4.02 0.06 3.96 4.02 0.04 3.98 4.02 0.04 3.97 after: 3.86 0.08 3.78 3.88 0.10 3.77 3.89 0.09 3.80 but this looks suspiciously good.

If there are no listeners, taskstats_exit_send() just returns because taskstats_exit_alloc() didn't allocate *tidstats.
