2011-07-25fs: take the ACL checks to common codeChristoph Hellwig
Replace the ->check_acl method with a ->get_acl method that simply reads an ACL from disk after having a cache miss. This means we can replace the ACL checking boilerplate code with a single implementation in namei.c. Signed-off-by: Christoph Hellwig <hch@lst.de> Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>
2011-07-20fs: push i_mutex and filemap_write_and_wait down into ->fsync() handlersJosef Bacik
Btrfs needs to be able to control how filemap_write_and_wait_range() is called in fsync to make it less of a painful operation, so push down taking i_mutex and the calling of filemap_write_and_wait() down into the ->fsync() handlers. Some file systems can drop taking the i_mutex altogether it seems, like ext3 and ocfs2. For correctness sake I just pushed everything down in all cases to make sure that we keep the current behavior the same for everybody, and then each individual fs maintainer can make up their mind about what to do from there.

2010-05-27rename the generic fsync implementationsChristoph Hellwig
We don't name our generic fsync implementations very well currently. The no-op implementation for in-memory filesystems currently is called simple_sync_file which doesn't make too much sense to start with, the the generic one for simple filesystems is called simple_fsync which can lead to some confusion. This patch renames the generic file fsync method to generic_file_fsync to match the other generic_file_* routines it is supposed to be used with, and the no-op implementation to noop_fsync to make it obvious what to expect. In addition add some documentation for both methods. Signed-off-by: Christoph Hellwig <hch@lst.de> Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>

2010-03-05dquot: cleanup dquot initialize routineChristoph Hellwig
Get rid of the initialize dquot operation - it is now always called from the filesystem and if a filesystem really needs it's own (which none currently does) it can just call into it's own routine directly. Rename the now static low-level dquot_initialize helper to __dquot_initialize and vfs_dq_init to dquot_initialize to have a consistent namespace.

2010-03-05dquot: move dquot initialization responsibility into the filesystemChristoph Hellwig
Currently various places in the VFS call vfs_dq_init directly. This means we tie the quota code into the VFS. Get rid of that and make the filesystem responsible for the initialization. For most metadata operations this is a straight forward move into the methods, but for truncate and open it's a bit more complicated. For truncate we currently only call vfs_dq_init for the sys_truncate case because open already takes care of it for ftruncate and open(O_TRUNC) - the new code causes an additional vfs_dq_init for those which is harmless. For open the initialization is moved from do_filp_open into the open method, which means it happens slightly earlier now, and only for regular files. The latter is fine because we don't need to initialize it for operations on special files, and we already do it as part of the namespace operations for directories. Add a dquot_file_open helper that filesystems that support generic quotas can use to fill in ->open. Signed-off-by: Christoph Hellwig <hch@lst.de> Signed-off-by: Jan Kara <jack@suse.cz>
2009-12-16ext2: report metadata errors during fsyncJan Kara
When an IO error happens while writing metadata buffers, we should better report it and call ext2_error since the filesystem is probably no longer consistent. Sometimes such IO errors happen while flushing thread does background writeback, the buffer gets later evicted from memory, and thus the only trace of the error remains as AS_EIO bit set in blockdevice's mapping. So we check this bit in ext2_fsync and report the error although we cannot be really sure which buffer we failed to write.

2008-10-03generic block based fiemap implementationJosef Bacik
Any block based fs (this patch includes ext3) just has to declare its own fiemap() function and then call this generic function with its own get_block_t. This works well for block based filesystems that will map multiple contiguous blocks at one time, but will work for filesystems that only map one block at a time, you will just end up with an "extent" for each block. One gotcha is this will not play nicely where there is hole+data after the EOF. This function will assume its hit the end of the data as soon as it hits a hole after the EOF, so if there is any data past that it will not pick that up. AFAIK no block based fs does this anyway, but its in the comments of the function anyway just in case.

2007-07-10xip sendfile removalCarsten Otte
This patch removes xip_file_sendfile, the sendfile implementation for xip without replacement. Those customers that use xip on s390 are not using sendfile() as far as we know, and so far s390 is the only platform this could potentially be used on so far. Having sendfile is not a popular feature for execute in place file systems, however we have a working implementation of splice_read() based on fs/splice.c if anyone asks for it. At this point in time, it does not seem preferable to merge splice_read() for xip because it causes extra maintenence effort due to code duplication and it requires struct page behind the xip memory segment. We'd like to get rid of that in favor of supporting flash based embedded platforms (Monta Vista work) soon.

2006-10-01[PATCH] Streamline generic_file_* interfaces and filemap cleanupsBadari Pulavarty
This patch cleans up generic_file_*_read/write() interfaces. Christoph Hellwig gave me the idea for this clean ups. In a nutshell, all filesystems should set .aio_read/.aio_write methods and use do_sync_read/ do_sync_write() as their .read/.write methods. This allows us to cleanup all variants of generic_file_* routines. Final available interfaces: generic_file_aio_read() - read handler generic_file_aio_write() - write handler generic_file_aio_write_nolock() - no lock write handler __generic_file_aio_write_nolock() - internal worker routine Signed-off-by: Badari Pulavarty <pbadari@us.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Christoph Hellwig <hch@lst.de> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>

2006-03-30[PATCH] Introduce sys_splice() system callJens Axboe
This adds support for the sys_splice system call. Using a pipe as a transport, it can connect to files or sockets (latter as output only). From the splice.c comments: "splice": joining two ropes together by interweaving their strands. This is the "extended pipe" functionality, where a pipe is used as an arbitrary in-memory buffer. Think of a pipe as a small kernel buffer that you can use to transfer data from one end to the other. The traditional unix read/write is extended with a "splice()" operation that transfers data buffers to or from a pipe buffer. Named by Larry McVoy, original implementation from Linus, extended by Jens to support splicing to files and fixing the initial implementation bugs.

2005-06-24[PATCH] xip: reduce code duplicationCarsten Otte
This patch reworks filemap_xip.c with the goal to reduce code duplication from mm/filemap.c. It applies agains 2.6.12-rc6-mm1. Instead of implementing the aio functions, this one implements the synchronous read/write functions only. For readv and writev, the generic fallback is used. For aio, we rely on the application doing the fallback. Since our "synchronous" function does memcpy immediately anyway, there is no performance difference between using the fallbacks or implementing each operation.

Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
