2006-01-18[PATCH] EDAC: core EDAC support codeAlan Cox
This is a subset of the bluesmoke project core code, stripped of the NMI work which isn't ready to merge and some of the "interesting" proc functionality that needs reworking or just has no place in kernel. It requires no core kernel changes except the added scrub functions already posted. The goal is to merge further functionality only after the core code is accepted and proven in the base kernel, and only at the point the upstream extras are really ready to merge. From: doug thompson <norsk5@xmission.com> This converts EDAC to sysfs and is the final chunk neccessary before EDAC has a stable user space API and can be considered for submission into the base kernel.

Handle TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK as added by David Woodhouse's patch entitled: [PATCH] 2/3 Add TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK support for arch/powerpc [PATCH] 3/3 Generic sys_rt_sigsuspend It does the following: (1) Declares TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK for i386. (2) Invokes it over to do_signal() when TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK is set. (3) Makes do_signal() support TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK, using the signal mask saved in current->saved_sigmask. (4) Discards sys_rt_sigsuspend() from the arch, using the generic one instead. (5) Makes sys_sigsuspend() save the signal mask and set TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK rather than attempting to fudge the return registers. (6) Makes sys_sigsuspend() return -ERESTARTNOHAND rather than looping intrinsically. (7) Makes setup_frame(), setup_rt_frame() and handle_signal() return 0 or -EFAULT rather than true/false to be consistent with the rest of the kernel. Due to the fact do_signal() is then only called from one place: (8) Makes do_signal() no longer have a return value is it was just being ignored; force_sig() takes care of this. (9) Discards the old sigmask argument to do_signal() as it's no longer necessary. (10) Makes do_signal() static. (11) Marks the second argument to do_notify_resume() as unused. The unused argument should remain in the middle as the arguments are passed in as registers, and the ordering is specific in entry.S Given the way do_signal() is now no longer called from sys_{,rt_}sigsuspend(), they no longer need access to the exception frame, and so can just take arguments normally.

2006-01-18[PATCH] vfs: *at functions: coreUlrich Drepper
Here is a series of patches which introduce in total 13 new system calls which take a file descriptor/filename pair instead of a single file name. These functions, openat etc, have been discussed on numerous occasions. They are needed to implement race-free filesystem traversal, they are necessary to implement a virtual per-thread current working directory (think multi-threaded backup software), etc. We have in glibc today implementations of the interfaces which use the /proc/self/fd magic. But this code is rather expensive. Here are some results (similar to what Jim Meyering posted before). The test creates a deep directory hierarchy on a tmpfs filesystem. Then rm -fr is used to remove all directories. Without syscall support I get this: real 0m31.921s user 0m0.688s sys 0m31.234s With syscall support the results are much better: real 0m20.699s user 0m0.536s sys 0m20.149s The interfaces are for obvious reasons currently not much used. But they'll be used. coreutils (and Jeff's posixutils) are already using them. Furthermore, code like ftw/fts in libc (maybe even glob) will also start using them. I expect a patch to make follow soon. Every program which is walking the filesystem tree will benefit.

2006-01-18[PATCH] uml: allow again to move backing file and to override saved locationPaolo 'Blaisorblade' Giarrusso
When the user specifies both a COW file and its backing file, if the previous backing file is not found, currently UML tries again to use it and fails. This can be corrected by changing same_backing_files() return value in that case, so that the caller will try to change the COW file to point to the new location, as already done in other cases. Additionally, given the change in the meaning of the func, change its name, invert its return value, so all values are inverted except when stat(from_cow,&buf2) fails. And add some comments and two minor bugfixes - remove a fd leak (return err rather than goto out) and a repeated check. Tested well.

Better remove the attempt, and change that to a simple "default y if UML". *) drop the warning about "report problems about HPPFS" - it's redundant anyway, as that's the usual procedure, and HPPFS users are especially technical (i.e. they know reporting bugs is _good_).

2006-01-18[PATCH] uml: avoid malloc to sleep in atomic sectionsPaolo 'Blaisorblade' Giarrusso
Ugly trick to help make malloc not sleeping - we can't do anything else. But this is not yet optimal, since spinlock don't trigger in_atomic() when preemption is disabled.

2006-01-18[PATCH] uml: sigio code - reduce spinlock hold timePaolo 'Blaisorblade' Giarrusso
In a previous patch I shifted an allocation to being atomic. In this patch, a better but more intrusive solution is implemented, i.e. hold the lock only when really needing it, especially not over pipe operations, nor over the culprit allocation. Additionally, while at it, add a missing kfree in the failure path, and make sure that if we fail in forking, write_sigio_pid is -1 and not, say, -ENOMEM. And fix whitespace, at least for things I was touching anyway.

2006-01-18[PATCH] uml: fix spinlock recursion and sleep-inside-spinlock in error pathPaolo 'Blaisorblade' Giarrusso
In this error path, when the interface has had a problem, we call dev_close(), which is disallowed for two reasons: *) takes again the UML internal spinlock, inside the ->stop method of this device *) can be called in process context only, while we're in interrupt context. I've also thought that calling dev_close() may be a wrong policy to follow, but it's not up to me to decide that. However, we may end up with multiple dev_close() queued on the same device. But the initial test for (dev->flags & IFF_UP) makes this harmless, though - and dev_close() is supposed to care about races with itself. So there's no harm in delaying the shutdown, IMHO. Something to mark the interface as "going to shutdown" would be appreciated, but dev_deactivate has the same problems as dev_close(), so we can't use it either.

Pre-clear transport-specific private structure before passing it down. In fact, I just got a slab corruption and kernel panic on exit because kfree() was called on a pointer which probably was never allocated, BUT hadn't been set to NULL by the driver. As the code is full of such errors, I've decided for now to go the safe way (we're talking about drivers), and to do the simple thing. I'm also starting to fix drivers, and already sent a patch for the daemon transport.

2006-01-18[PATCH] uml: use setjmp/longjmp instead of sigsetjmp/siglongjmpJeff Dike
Now that we are doing soft interrupts, there's no point in using sigsetjmp and siglongjmp. Using setjmp and longjmp saves a sigprocmask on every jump.

2006-01-18[PATCH] uml: implement soft interruptsJeff Dike
This patch implements soft interrupts. Interrupt enabling and disabling no longer map to sigprocmask. Rather, a flag is set indicating whether interrupts may be handled. If a signal comes in and interrupts are marked as OK, then it is handled normally. If interrupts are marked as off, then the signal handler simply returns after noting that a signal needs handling. When interrupts are enabled later on, this pending signals flag is checked, and the IRQ handlers are called at that point. The point of this is to reduce the cost of local_irq_save et al, since they are very much more common than the signals that they are enabling and disabling. Soft interrupts produce a speed-up of ~25% on a kernel build. Subtleties - UML uses sigsetjmp/siglongjmp to switch contexts. sigsetjmp has been wrapped in a save_flags-like macro which remembers the interrupt state at setjmp time, and restores it when it is longjmp-ed back to. The enable_signals function has to loop because the IRQ handler disables interrupts before returning. enable_signals has to return with signals enabled, and signals may come in between the disabling and the return to enable_signals. So, it loops for as long as there are pending signals, ensuring that signals are enabled when it finally returns, and that there are no pending signals that need to be dealt with.
