2013-08-20elevator: Fix a race in elevator switchingJianpeng Ma
commit d50235b7bc3ee0a0427984d763ea7534149531b4 upstream. There's a race between elevator switching and normal io operation. Because the allocation of struct elevator_queue and struct elevator_data don't in a atomic operation.So there are have chance to use NULL ->elevator_data. For example: Thread A: Thread B blk_queu_bio elevator_switch spin_lock_irq(q->queue_block) elevator_alloc elv_merge elevator_init_fn Because call elevator_alloc, it can't hold queue_lock and the ->elevator_data is NULL.So at the same time, threadA call elv_merge and nedd some info of elevator_data.So the crash happened. Move the elevator_alloc into func elevator_init_fn, it make the operations in a atomic operation. Using the follow method can easy reproduce this bug 1:dd if=/dev/sdb of=/dev/null 2:while true;do echo noop > scheduler;echo deadline > scheduler;done The test method also use this method.

2012-03-06elevator: make elevator_init_fn() return 0/-errnoTejun Heo
elevator_ops->elevator_init_fn() has a weird return value. It returns a void * which the caller should assign to q->elevator->elevator_data and %NULL return denotes init failure. Update such that it returns integer 0/-errno and sets elevator_data directly as necessary. This makes the interface more conventional and eases further cleanup.

2011-12-14block, cfq: move icq cache management to block coreTejun Heo
Let elevators set ->icq_size and ->icq_align in elevator_type and elv_register() and elv_unregister() respectively create and destroy kmem_cache for icq. * elv_register() now can return failure. All callers updated. * icq caches are automatically named "ELVNAME_io_cq". * cfq_slab_setup/kill() are collapsed into cfq_init/exit(). * While at it, minor indentation change for iosched_cfq.elevator_name for consistency. This will help moving icq management to block core. This doesn't introduce any functional change. Signed-off-by: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <axboe@kernel.dk>
2011-03-10block: remove per-queue pluggingJens Axboe
Code has been converted over to the new explicit on-stack plugging, and delay users have been converted to use the new API for that. So lets kill off the old plugging along with aops->sync_page(). Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jaxboe@fusionio.com>
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.

2006-06-08[PATCH] elevator switching raceJens Axboe
There's a race between shutting down one io scheduler and firing up the next, in which a new io could enter and cause the io scheduler to be invoked with bad or NULL data. To fix this, we need to maintain the queue lock for a bit longer. Unfortunately we cannot do that, since the elevator init requires to be run without the lock held. This isn't easily fixable, without also changing the mempool API. So split the initialization into two parts, and alloc-init operation and an attach operation. Then we can preallocate the io scheduler and related structures, and run the attach inside the lock after we detach the old one. This patch has survived 30 minutes of 1 second io scheduler switching with a very busy io load. Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <axboe@suse.de> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2005-11-12[BLOCK] noop-iosched: reimplementation of request dispatchingTejun Heo
The original implementation directly used dispatch queue. As new generic dispatch queue imposes stricter rules over ioscheds and dispatch queue usage, this direct use becomes somewhat problematic. This patch reimplements noop-iosched such that it complies to generic iosched model better. Request merging with q->last_merge and rq->queuelist.prev/next work again now.
