2014-03-10vfs: atomic f_pos accesses as per POSIXLinus Torvalds
Our write() system call has always been atomic in the sense that you get the expected thread-safe contiguous write, but we haven't actually guaranteed that concurrent writes are serialized wrt f_pos accesses, so threads (or processes) that share a file descriptor and use "write()" concurrently would quite likely overwrite each others data. This violates POSIX.1-2008/SUSv4 Section XSI 2.9.7 that says: "2.9.7 Thread Interactions with Regular File Operations All of the following functions shall be atomic with respect to each other in the effects specified in POSIX.1-2008 when they operate on regular files or symbolic links: [...]" and one of the effects is the file position update. This unprotected file position behavior is not new behavior, and nobody has ever cared. Until now. Yongzhi Pan reported unexpected behavior to Michael Kerrisk that was due to this. This resolves the issue with a f_pos-specific lock that is taken by read/write/lseek on file descriptors that may be shared across threads or processes.

2014-02-09fix O_SYNC|O_APPEND syncing the wrong range on write()Al Viro
It actually goes back to 2004 ([PATCH] Concurrent O_SYNC write support) when sync_page_range() had been introduced; generic_file_write{,v}() correctly synced pos_after_write - written .. pos_after_write - 1 but generic_file_aio_write() synced pos_before_write .. pos_before_write + written - 1 instead. Which is not the same thing with O_APPEND, obviously. A couple of years later correct variant had been killed off when everything switched to use of generic_file_aio_write(). All users of generic_file_aio_write() are affected, and the same bug has been copied into other instances of ->aio_write(). The fix is trivial; the only subtle point is that generic_write_sync() ought to be inlined to avoid calculations useless for the majority of calls. Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>
2014-02-05execve: use 'struct filename *' for executable name passingLinus Torvalds
This changes 'do_execve()' to get the executable name as a 'struct filename', and to free it when it is done. This is what the normal users want, and it simplifies and streamlines their error handling. The controlled lifetime of the executable name also fixes a use-after-free problem with the trace_sched_process_exec tracepoint: the lifetime of the passed-in string for kernel users was not at all obvious, and the user-mode helper code used UMH_WAIT_EXEC to serialize the pathname allocation lifetime with the execve() having finished, which in turn meant that the trace point that happened after mm_release() of the old process VM ended up using already free'd memory. To solve the kernel string lifetime issue, this simply introduces "getname_kernel()" that works like the normal user-space getname() function, except with the source coming from kernel memory. As Oleg points out, this also means that we could drop the tcomm[] array from 'struct linux_binprm', since the pathname lifetime now covers setup_new_exec(). That would be a separate cleanup.

2013-11-09locks: break delegations on unlinkJ. Bruce Fields
We need to break delegations on any operation that changes the set of links pointing to an inode. Start with unlink. Such operations also hold the i_mutex on a parent directory. Breaking a delegation may require waiting for a timeout (by default 90 seconds) in the case of a unresponsive NFS client. To avoid blocking all directory operations, we therefore drop locks before waiting for the delegation. The logic then looks like: acquire locks ... test for delegation; if found: take reference on inode release locks wait for delegation break drop reference on inode retry It is possible this could never terminate. (Even if we take precautions to prevent another delegation being acquired on the same inode, we could get a different inode on each retry.) But this seems very unlikely. The initial test for a delegation happens after the lock on the target inode is acquired, but the directory inode may have been acquired further up the call stack. We therefore add a "struct inode **" argument to any intervening functions, which we use to pass the inode back up to the caller in the case it needs a delegation synchronously broken.

2013-09-10dentry: move to per-sb LRU locksDave Chinner
With the dentry LRUs being per-sb structures, there is no real need for a global dentry_lru_lock. The locking can be made more fine-grained by moving to a per-sb LRU lock, isolating the LRU operations of different filesytsems completely from each other. The need for this is independent of any performance consideration that may arise: in the interest of abstracting the lru operations away, it is mandatory that each lru works around its own lock instead of a global lock for all of them.

2013-09-10fs: bump inode and dentry counters to longGlauber Costa
This series reworks our current object cache shrinking infrastructure in two main ways: * Noticing that a lot of users copy and paste their own version of LRU lists for objects, we put some effort in providing a generic version. It is modeled after the filesystem users: dentries, inodes, and xfs (for various tasks), but we expect that other users could benefit in the near future with little or no modification. Let us know if you have any issues. * The underlying list_lru being proposed automatically and transparently keeps the elements in per-node lists, and is able to manipulate the node lists individually. Given this infrastructure, we are able to modify the up-to-now hammer called shrink_slab to proceed with node-reclaim instead of always searching memory from all over like it has been doing. Per-node lru lists are also expected to lead to less contention in the lru locks on multi-node scans, since we are now no longer fighting for a global lock. The locks usually disappear from the profilers with this change. Although we have no official benchmarks for this version - be our guest to independently evaluate this - earlier versions of this series were performance tested (details at http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel.mm/100537) yielding no visible performance regressions while yielding a better qualitative behavior in NUMA machines. With this infrastructure in place, we can use the list_lru entry point to provide memcg isolation and per-memcg targeted reclaim. Historically, those two pieces of work have been posted together. This version presents only the infrastructure work, deferring the memcg work for a later time, so we can focus on getting this part tested. You can see more about the history of such work at http://lwn.net/Articles/552769/ Dave Chinner (18): dcache: convert dentry_stat.nr_unused to per-cpu counters dentry: move to per-sb LRU locks dcache: remove dentries from LRU before putting on dispose list mm: new shrinker API shrinker: convert superblock shrinkers to new API list: add a new LRU list type inode: convert inode lru list to generic lru list code. dcache: convert to use new lru list infrastructure list_lru: per-node list infrastructure shrinker: add node awareness fs: convert inode and dentry shrinking to be node aware xfs: convert buftarg LRU to generic code xfs: rework buffer dispose list tracking xfs: convert dquot cache lru to list_lru fs: convert fs shrinkers to new scan/count API drivers: convert shrinkers to new count/scan API shrinker: convert remaining shrinkers to count/scan API shrinker: Kill old ->shrink API.

2013-09-04direct-io: Implement generic deferred AIO completionsChristoph Hellwig
Add support to the core direct-io code to defer AIO completions to user context using a workqueue. This replaces opencoded and less efficient code in XFS and ext4 (we save a memory allocation for each direct IO) and will be needed to properly support O_(D)SYNC for AIO. The communication between the filesystem and the direct I/O code requires a new buffer head flag, which is a bit ugly but not avoidable until the direct I/O code stops abusing the buffer_head structure for communicating with the filesystems. Currently this creates a per-superblock unbound workqueue for these completions, which is taken from an earlier patch by Jan Kara. I'm not really convinced about this use and would prefer a "normal" global workqueue with a high concurrency limit, but this needs further discussion.

Rely on the fact that another flavor of the filesystem is already mounted and do not rely on state in the user namespace. Verify that the mounted filesystem is not covered in any significant way. I would love to verify that the previously mounted filesystem has no mounts on top but there are at least the directories /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc and /sys/fs/cgroup/ that exist explicitly for other filesystems to mount on top of. Refactor the test into a function named fs_fully_visible and call that function from the mount routines of proc and sysfs. This makes this test local to the filesystems involved and the results current of when the mounts take place, removing a weird threading of the user namespace, the mount namespace and the filesystems themselves.

2013-07-08locks: move file_lock_list to a set of percpu hlist_heads and convert ↵Jeff Layton
file_lock_lock to an lglock The file_lock_list is only used for /proc/locks. The vastly common case is for locks to be put onto the list and come off again, without ever being traversed. Help optimize for this use-case by moving to percpu hlist_head-s. At the same time, we can make the locking less contentious by moving to an lglock. When iterating over the lists for /proc/locks, we must take the global lock and then iterate over each CPU's list in turn. This change necessitates a new fl_link_cpu field to keep track of which CPU the entry is on. On x86_64 at least, this field is placed within an existing hole in the struct to avoid growing the size.

2013-07-03mm: vmscan: take page buffers dirty and locked state into accountMel Gorman
Page reclaim keeps track of dirty and under writeback pages and uses it to determine if wait_iff_congested() should stall or if kswapd should begin writing back pages. This fails to account for buffer pages that can be under writeback but not PageWriteback which is the case for filesystems like ext3 ordered mode. Furthermore, PageDirty buffer pages can have all the buffers clean and writepage does no IO so it should not be accounted as congested. This patch adds an address_space operation that filesystems may optionally use to check if a page is really dirty or really under writeback. An implementation is provided for for buffer_heads is added and used for block operations and ext3 in ordered mode. By default the page flags are obeyed. Credit goes to Jan Kara for identifying that the page flags alone are not sufficient for ext3 and sanity checking a number of ideas on how the problem could be addressed.

2013-06-29locks: add a new "lm_owner_key" lock operationJeff Layton
Currently, the hashing that the locking code uses to add these values to the blocked_hash is simply calculated using fl_owner field. That's valid in most cases except for server-side lockd, which validates the owner of a lock based on fl_owner and fl_pid. In the case where you have a small number of NFS clients doing a lot of locking between different processes, you could end up with all the blocked requests sitting in a very small number of hash buckets. Add a new lm_owner_key operation to the lock_manager_operations that will generate an unsigned long to use as the key in the hashtable. That function is only implemented for server-side lockd, and simply XORs the fl_owner and fl_pid. Signed-off-by: Jeff Layton <jlayton@redhat.com> Acked-by: J.
