2010-08-13irq: Add new IRQ flag IRQF_NO_SUSPENDIan Campbell
commit 685fd0b4ea3f0f1d5385610b0d5b57775a8d5842 upstream. A small number of users of IRQF_TIMER are using it for the implied no suspend behaviour on interrupts which are not timer interrupts. Therefore add a new IRQF_NO_SUSPEND flag, rename IRQF_TIMER to __IRQF_TIMER and redefine IRQF_TIMER in terms of these new flags.

2010-08-13bio, fs: update RWA_MASK, READA and SWRITE to match the corresponding ↵Tejun Heo
BIO_RW_* bits commit aca27ba9618276dd2f777bcd5a1419589ccf1ca8 upstream. Commit a82afdf (block: use the same failfast bits for bio and request) moved BIO_RW_* bits around such that they match up with REQ_* bits. Unfortunately, fs.h hard coded RW_MASK, RWA_MASK, READ, WRITE, READA and SWRITE as 0, 1, 2 and 3, and expected them to match with BIO_RW_* bits. READ/WRITE didn't change but BIO_RW_AHEAD was moved to bit 4 instead of bit 1, breaking RWA_MASK, READA and SWRITE. This patch updates RWA_MASK, READA and SWRITE such that they match the BIO_RW_* bits again. A follow up patch will update the definitions to directly use BIO_RW_* bits so that this kind of breakage won't happen again. Neil also spotted missing RWA_MASK conversion. Stable: The offending commit a82afdf was released with v2.6.32, so this patch should be applied to all kernels since then but it must _NOT_ be applied to kernels earlier than that.

2010-08-13Fix sget() race with failing mountAl Viro
commit 7a4dec53897ecd3367efb1e12fe8a4edc47dc0e9 upstream. If sget() finds a matching superblock being set up, it'll grab an active reference to it and grab s_umount. That's fine - we'll wait for completion of foofs_get_sb() that way. However, if said foofs_get_sb() fails we'll end up holding the halfway-created superblock. deactivate_locked_super() called by foofs_get_sb() will just unlock the sucker since we are holding another active reference to it. What we need is a way to tell if superblock has been successfully set up. Unfortunately, neither ->s_root nor the check for MS_ACTIVE quite fit. Cheap and easy way, suitable for backport: new flag set by the (only) caller of ->get_sb(). If that flag isn't present by the time sget() grabbed s_umount on preexisting superblock it has found, it's seeing a stillborn and should just bury it with deactivate_locked_super() (and repeat the search). Longer term we want to set that flag in ->get_sb() instances (and check for it to distinguish between "sget() found us a live sb" and "sget() has allocated an sb, we need to set it up" in there, instead of checking ->s_root as we do now).

2010-08-10arp_notify: allow drivers to explicitly request a notification event.Ian Campbell
commit 06c4648d46d1b757d6b9591a86810be79818b60c upstream. Currently such notifications are only generated when the device comes up or the address changes. However one use case for these notifications is to enable faster network recovery after a virtual machine migration (by causing switches to relearn their MAC tables). A migration appears to the network stack as a temporary loss of carrier and therefore does not trigger either of the current conditions. Rather than adding carrier up as a trigger (which can cause issues when interfaces a flapping) simply add an interface which the driver can use to explicitly trigger the notification.

2010-07-29CRED: Fix __task_cred()'s lockdep check and banner commentDavid Howells
Fix __task_cred()'s lockdep check by removing the following validation condition: lockdep_tasklist_lock_is_held() as commit_creds() does not take the tasklist_lock, and nor do most of the functions that call it, so this check is pointless and it can prevent detection of the RCU lock not being held if the tasklist_lock is held. Instead, add the following validation condition: task->exit_state >= 0 to permit the access if the target task is dead and therefore unable to change its own credentials. Fix __task_cred()'s comment to: (1) discard the bit that says that the caller must prevent the target task from being deleted. That shouldn't need saying. (2) Add a comment indicating the result of __task_cred() should not be passed directly to get_cred(), but rather than get_task_cred() should be used instead. Also put a note into the documentation to enforce this point there too. Signed-off-by: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com> Acked-by: Jiri Olsa <jolsa@redhat.com> Cc: Paul E.

2010-07-29CRED: Fix get_task_cred() and task_state() to not resurrect dead credentialsDavid Howells
It's possible for get_task_cred() as it currently stands to 'corrupt' a set of credentials by incrementing their usage count after their replacement by the task being accessed. What happens is that get_task_cred() can race with commit_creds(): TASK_1 TASK_2 RCU_CLEANER -->get_task_cred(TASK_2) rcu_read_lock() __cred = __task_cred(TASK_2) -->commit_creds() old_cred = TASK_2->real_cred TASK_2->real_cred = ... put_cred(old_cred) call_rcu(old_cred) [__cred->usage == 0] get_cred(__cred) [__cred->usage == 1] rcu_read_unlock() -->put_cred_rcu() [__cred->usage == 1] panic() However, since a tasks credentials are generally not changed very often, we can reasonably make use of a loop involving reading the creds pointer and using atomic_inc_not_zero() to attempt to increment it if it hasn't already hit zero. If successful, we can safely return the credentials in the knowledge that, even if the task we're accessing has released them, they haven't gone to the RCU cleanup code. We then change task_state() in procfs to use get_task_cred() rather than calling get_cred() on the result of __task_cred(), as that suffers from the same problem. Without this change, a BUG_ON in __put_cred() or in put_cred_rcu() can be tripped when it is noticed that the usage count is not zero as it ought to be, for example: kernel BUG at kernel/cred.c:168! invalid opcode: 0000 [#1] SMP last sysfs file: /sys/kernel/mm/ksm/run CPU 0 Pid: 2436, comm: master Not tainted #1 0HR330/OptiPlex 745 RIP: 0010:[<ffffffff81069881>] [<ffffffff81069881>] __put_cred+0xc/0x45 RSP: 0018:ffff88019e7e9eb8 EFLAGS: 00010202 RAX: 0000000000000001 RBX: ffff880161514480 RCX: 00000000ffffffff RDX: 00000000ffffffff RSI: ffff880140c690c0 RDI: ffff880140c690c0 RBP: ffff88019e7e9eb8 R08: 00000000000000d0 R09: 0000000000000000 R10: 0000000000000001 R11: 0000000000000040 R12: ffff880140c690c0 R13: ffff88019e77aea0 R14: 00007fff336b0a5c R15: 0000000000000001 FS: 00007f12f50d97c0(0000) GS:ffff880007400000(0000) knlGS:0000000000000000 CS: 0010 DS: 0000 ES: 0000 CR0: 0000000080050033 CR2: 00007f8f461bc000 CR3: 00000001b26ce000 CR4: 00000000000006f0 DR0: 0000000000000000 DR1: 0000000000000000 DR2: 0000000000000000 DR3: 0000000000000000 DR6: 00000000ffff0ff0 DR7: 0000000000000400 Process master (pid: 2436, threadinfo ffff88019e7e8000, task ffff88019e77aea0) Stack: ffff88019e7e9ec8 ffffffff810698cd ffff88019e7e9ef8 ffffffff81069b45 <0> ffff880161514180 ffff880161514480 ffff880161514180 0000000000000000 <0> ffff88019e7e9f28 ffffffff8106aace 0000000000000001 0000000000000246 Call Trace: [<ffffffff810698cd>] put_cred+0x13/0x15 [<ffffffff81069b45>] commit_creds+0x16b/0x175 [<ffffffff8106aace>] set_current_groups+0x47/0x4e [<ffffffff8106ac89>] sys_setgroups+0xf6/0x105 [<ffffffff81009b02>] system_call_fastpath+0x16/0x1b Code: 48 8d 71 ff e8 7e 4e 15 00 85 c0 78 0b 8b 75 ec 48 89 df e8 ef 4a 15 00 48 83 c4 18 5b c9 c3 55 8b 07 8b 07 48 89 e5 85 c0 74 04 <0f> 0b eb fe 65 48 8b 04 25 00 cc 00 00 48 3b b8 58 04 00 00 75 RIP [<ffffffff81069881>] __put_cred+0xc/0x45 RSP <ffff88019e7e9eb8> ---[ end trace df391256a100ebdd ]--- Signed-off-by: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com> Acked-by: Jiri Olsa <jolsa@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

Acked-by: Mark Brown <broonie@opensource.wolfsonmicro.com> In TPS6507x, depending on the status of DEFDCDC{2,3} pin either DEFDCDC{2,3}_LOW or DEFDCDC{2,3}_HIGH register needs to be read or programmed to change the output voltage. The current driver assumes DEFDCDC{2,3} pins are always tied low and thus operates only on DEFDCDC{2,3}_LOW register. This need not always be the case (as is found on OMAP-L138 EVM). Unfortunately, software cannot read the status of DEFDCDC{2,3} pins. So, this information is passed through platform data depending on how the board is wired.

2010-07-22macvtap: Limit packet queue lengthHerbert Xu
Mark Wagner reported OOM symptoms when sending UDP traffic over a macvtap link to a kvm receiver. This appears to be caused by the fact that macvtap packet queues are unlimited in length. This means that if the receiver can't keep up with the rate of flow, then we will hit OOM. Of course it gets worse if the OOM killer then decides to kill the receiver. This patch imposes a cap on the packet queue length, in the same way as the tuntap driver, using the device TX queue length. Please note that macvtap currently has no way of giving congestion notification, that means the software device TX queue cannot be used and packets will always be dropped once the macvtap driver queue fills up. This shouldn't be a great problem for the scenario where macvtap is used to feed a kvm receiver, as the traffic is most likely external in origin so congestion notification can't be applied anyway. Of course, if anybody decides to complain about guest-to-guest UDP packet loss down the track, then we may have to revisit this. Incidentally, this patch also fixes a real memory leak when macvtap_get_queue fails. Chris Wright noticed that for this patch to work, we need a non-zero TX queue length. This patch includes his work to change the default macvtap TX queue length to 500.

2010-07-20math-emu: correct test for downshifting fraction in _FP_FROM_INT()Mikael Pettersson
The kernel's math-emu code contains a macro _FP_FROM_INT() which is used to convert an integer to a raw normalized floating-point value. It does this basically in three steps: 1. Compute the exponent from the number of leading zero bits. 2. Downshift large fractions to put the MSB in the right position for normalized fractions. 3. Upshift small fractions to put the MSB in the right position. There is an boundary error in step 2, causing a fraction with its MSB exactly one bit above the normalized MSB position to not be downshifted. This results in a non-normalized raw float, which when packed becomes a massively inaccurate representation for that input. The impact of this depends on a number of arch-specific factors, but it is known to have broken emulation of FXTOD instructions on UltraSPARC III, which was originally reported as GCC bug 44631 <http://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=44631>. Any arch which uses math-emu to emulate conversions from integers to same-size floats may be affected. The fix is simple: the exponent comparison used to determine if the fraction should be downshifted must be "<=" not "<". I'm sending a kernel module to test this as a reply to this message. There are also SPARC user-space test cases in the GCC bug entry. Signed-off-by: Mikael Pettersson <mikpe@it.uu.se> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>

2010-07-20vfs: fix RCU-lockdep false positive due to /procPaul E. McKenney
If a single-threaded process does a file-descriptor operation, and some other process accesses that same file descriptor via /proc, the current rcu_dereference_check_fdtable() can give a false-positive RCU-lockdep splat due to the reference count being increased by the /proc access after the reference-count check in fget_light() but before the check in rcu_dereference_check_fdtable(). This commit prevents this false positive by checking for a single-threaded process. To avoid #include hell, this commit uses the wrapper for thread_group_empty(current) defined by rcu_my_thread_group_empty() provided in a separate commit.

2010-07-20tracing: Properly align linker defined symbolsSam Ravnborg
We define a number of symbols in the linker scipt like this: __start_syscalls_metadata = .; *(__syscalls_metadata) But we do not know the alignment of "." when we assign the __start_syscalls_metadata symbol. gcc started to uses bigger alignment for structs (32 bytes), so we saw situations where the linker due to alignment constraints increased the value of "." after the symbol assignment. This resulted in boot fails. Fix this by forcing a 32 byte alignment of "." before the assignment. This patch introduces the forced alignment for ftrace_events and syscalls_metadata. It may be required in more places.

2010-07-16PCI: fall back to original BIOS BAR addressesBjorn Helgaas
If we fail to assign resources to a PCI BAR, this patch makes us try the original address from BIOS rather than leaving it disabled. Linux tries to make sure all PCI device BARs are inside the upstream PCI host bridge or P2P bridge apertures, reassigning BARs if necessary. Windows does similar reassignment. Before this patch, if we could not move a BAR into an aperture, we left the resource unassigned, i.e., at address zero. Windows leaves such BARs at the original BIOS addresses, and this patch makes Linux do the same. This is a bit ugly because we disable the resource long before we try to reassign it, so we have to keep track of the BIOS BAR address somewhere. For lack of a better place, I put it in the struct pci_dev. I think it would be cleaner to attempt the assignment immediately when the claim fails, so we could easily remember the original address. But we currently claim motherboard resources in the middle, after attempting to claim PCI resources and before assigning new PCI resources, and changing that is a fairly big job.

2010-07-15jbd2/ocfs2: Fix block checksumming when a buffer is used in several transactionsJan Kara
OCFS2 uses t_commit trigger to compute and store checksum of the just committed blocks. When a buffer has b_frozen_data, checksum is computed for it instead of b_data but this can result in an old checksum being written to the filesystem in the following scenario: 1) transaction1 is opened 2) handle1 is opened 3) journal_access(handle1, bh) - This sets jh->b_transaction to transaction1 4) modify(bh) 5) journal_dirty(handle1, bh) 6) handle1 is closed 7) start committing transaction1, opening transaction2 8) handle2 is opened 9) journal_access(handle2, bh) - This copies off b_frozen_data to make it safe for transaction1 to commit. jh->b_next_transaction is set to transaction2. 10) jbd2_journal_write_metadata() checksums b_frozen_data 11) the journal correctly writes b_frozen_data to the disk journal 12) handle2 is closed - There was no dirty call for the bh on handle2, so it is never queued for any more journal operation 13) Checkpointing finally happens, and it just spools the bh via normal buffer writeback. This will write b_data, which was never triggered on and thus contains a wrong (old) checksum. This patch fixes the problem by calling the trigger at the moment data is frozen for journal commit - i.e., either when b_frozen_data is created by do_get_write_access or just before we write a buffer to the log if b_frozen_data does not exist. We also rename the trigger to t_frozen as that better describes when it is called.

2010-07-14net: fix problem in reading sock TX queueTom Herbert
Fix problem in reading the tx_queue recorded in a socket. In dev_pick_tx, the TX queue is read by doing a check with sk_tx_queue_recorded on the socket, followed by a sk_tx_queue_get. The problem is that there is not mutual exclusion across these calls in the socket so it it is possible that the queue in the sock can be invalidated after sk_tx_queue_recorded is called so that sk_tx_queue get returns -1, which sets 65535 in queue_index and thus dev_pick_tx returns 65536 which is a bogus queue and can cause crash in dev_queue_xmit. We fix this by only calling sk_tx_queue_get which does the proper checks. The interface is that sk_tx_queue_get returns the TX queue if the sock argument is non-NULL and TX queue is recorded, else it returns -1. sk_tx_queue_recorded is no longer used so it can be completely removed.

2010-07-09tracing: Add alignment to syscall metadata declarationsSteven Rostedt
For some reason if we declare a static variable and then assign it later, and the assignment contains a __attribute__((__aligned__(#))), some versions of gcc will ignore it. This caused the syscall meta data to not be compact in its section and caused a kernel oops when the section was being read. The fix for these versions of gcc seems to be to add the aligned attribute to the declaration as well.
