2011-03-03blktrace: Remove blk_fill_rwbs_rq.Tao Ma
If we enable trace events to trace block actions, We use blk_fill_rwbs_rq to analyze the corresponding actions in request's cmd_flags, but we only choose the minor 2 bits from it, so most of other flags(e.g, REQ_SYNC) are missing. For example, with a sync write we get: write_test-2409 [001] 160.013869: block_rq_insert: 3,64 W 0 () 258135 + = 8 [write_test] Since now we have integrated the flags of both bio and request, it is safe to pass rq->cmd_flags directly to blk_fill_rwbs and blk_fill_rwbs_rq isn't needed any more. With this patch, after a sync write we get: write_test-2417 [000] 226.603878: block_rq_insert: 3,64 WS 0 () 258135 += 8 [write_test] Signed-off-by: Tao Ma <boyu.mt@taobao.com> Acked-by: Jeff Moyer <jmoyer@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jaxboe@fusionio.com>
2011-02-26clockevents: Prevent oneshot mode when broadcast device is periodicThomas Gleixner
When the per cpu timer is marked CLOCK_EVT_FEAT_C3STOP, then we only can switch into oneshot mode, when the backup broadcast device supports oneshot mode as well. Otherwise we would try to switch the broadcast device into an unsupported mode unconditionally. This went unnoticed so far as the current available broadcast devices support oneshot mode. Seth unearthed this problem while debugging and working around an hpet related BIOS wreckage. Add the necessary check to tick_is_oneshot_available().

2011-02-19genirq: Disable the SHIRQ_DEBUG call in request_threaded_irq for nowThomas Gleixner
With CONFIG_SHIRQ_DEBUG=y we call a newly installed interrupt handler in request_threaded_irq(). The original implementation (commit a304e1b8) called the handler _BEFORE_ it was installed, but that caused problems with handlers calling disable_irq_nosync(). See commit 377bf1e4. It's braindead in the first place to call disable_irq_nosync in shared handlers, but .... Moving this call after we installed the handler looks innocent, but it is very subtle broken on SMP. Interrupt handlers rely on the fact, that the irq core prevents reentrancy. Now this debug call violates that promise because we run the handler w/o the IRQ_INPROGRESS protection - which we cannot apply here because that would result in a possibly forever masked interrupt line. A concurrent real hardware interrupt on a different CPU results in handler reentrancy and can lead to complete wreckage, which was unfortunately observed in reality and took a fricking long time to debug. Leave the code here for now. We want this debug feature, but that's not easy to fix. We really should get rid of those disable_irq_nosync() abusers and remove that function completely.

2011-02-19genirq: Prevent access beyond allocated_irqs bitmapThomas Gleixner
Lars-Peter Clausen pointed out: I stumbled upon this while looking through the existing archs using SPARSE_IRQ. Even with SPARSE_IRQ the NR_IRQS is still the upper limit for the number of IRQs. Both PXA and MMP set NR_IRQS to IRQ_BOARD_START, with IRQ_BOARD_START being the number of IRQs used by the core. In various machine files the nr_irqs field of the ARM machine defintion struct is then set to "IRQ_BOARD_START + NR_BOARD_IRQS". As a result "nr_irqs" will greater then NR_IRQS which then again causes the "allocated_irqs" bitmap in the core irq code to be accessed beyond its size overwriting unrelated data. The core code really misses a sanity check there. This went unnoticed so far as by chance the compiler/linker places data behind that bitmap which gets initialized later on those affected platforms. So the obvious fix would be to add a sanity check in early_irq_init() and break all affected platforms. Though that check wants to be backported to stable as well, which will require to fix all known problematic platforms and probably some more yet not known ones as well. Lots of churn. A way simpler solution is to allocate a slightly larger bitmap and avoid the whole churn w/o breaking anything. Add a few warnings when an arch returns utter crap.

2011-02-16perf: Fix throttle logicPeter Zijlstra
It was possible to call pmu::start() on an already running event. In particular this lead so some wreckage as the hrtimer events would re-initialize active timers. This was due to throttled events being activated again by scheduling. Scheduling in a context would add and force start events, resulting in running events with a possible throttle status. The next tick to hit that task will then try to unthrottle the event and call ->start() on an already running event.

2011-02-11ptrace: use safer wake up on ptrace_detach()Tejun Heo
The wake_up_process() call in ptrace_detach() is spurious and not interlocked with the tracee state. IOW, the tracee could be running or sleeping in any place in the kernel by the time wake_up_process() is called. This can lead to the tracee waking up unexpectedly which can be dangerous. The wake_up is spurious and should be removed but for now reduce its toxicity by only waking up if the tracee is in TRACED or STOPPED state. This bug can possibly be used as an attack vector. I don't think it will take too much effort to come up with an attack which triggers oops somewhere. Most sleeps are wrapped in condition test loops and should be safe but we have quite a number of places where sleep and wakeup conditions are expected to be interlocked. Although the window of opportunity is tiny, ptrace can be used by non-privileged users and with some loading the window can definitely be extended and exploited.

2011-02-03tracing: Replace syscall_meta_data struct array with pointer arraySteven Rostedt
Currently the syscall_meta structures for the syscall tracepoints are placed in the __syscall_metadata section, and at link time, the linker makes one large array of all these syscall metadata structures. On boot up, this array is read (much like the initcall sections) and the syscall data is processed. The problem is that there is no guarantee that gcc will place complex structures nicely together in an array format. Two structures in the same file may be placed awkwardly, because gcc has no clue that they are suppose to be in an array. A hack was used previous to force the alignment to 4, to pack the structures together. But this caused alignment issues with other architectures (sparc). Instead of packing the structures into an array, the structures' addresses are now put into the __syscall_metadata section. As pointers are always the natural alignment, gcc should always pack them tightly together (otherwise initcall, extable, etc would also fail). By having the pointers to the structures in the section, we can still iterate the trace_events without causing unnecessary alignment problems with other architectures, or depending on the current behaviour of gcc that will likely change in the future just to tick us kernel developers off a little more. The __syscall_metadata section is also moved into the .init.data section as it is now only needed at boot up. Suggested-by: David Miller <davem@davemloft.net> Acked-by: David S.

2011-02-03tracepoints: Fix section alignment using pointer arrayMathieu Desnoyers
Make the tracepoints more robust, making them solid enough to handle compiler changes by not relying on anything based on compiler-specific behavior with respect to structure alignment. Implement an approach proposed by David Miller: use an array of const pointers to refer to the individual structures, and export this pointer array through the linker script rather than the structures per se. It will consume 32 extra bytes per tracepoint (24 for structure padding and 8 for the pointers), but are less likely to break due to compiler changes. History: commit 7e066fb8 tracepoints: add DECLARE_TRACE() and DEFINE_TRACE() added the aligned(32) type and variable attribute to the tracepoint structures to deal with gcc happily aligning statically defined structures on 32-byte multiples. One attempt was to use a 8-byte alignment for tracepoint structures by applying both the variable and type attribute to tracepoint structures definitions and declarations. It worked fine with gcc 4.5.1, but broke with gcc 4.4.4 and 4.4.5. The reason is that the "aligned" attribute only specify the _minimum_ alignment for a structure, leaving both the compiler and the linker free to align on larger multiples. Because tracepoint.c expects the structures to be placed as an array within each section, up-alignment cause NULL-pointer exceptions due to the extra unexpected padding.

2011-01-31watchdog: Fix broken nowatchdog logicMarcin Slusarz
Passing nowatchdog to kernel disables 2 things: creation of watchdog threads AND initialization of percpu watchdog_hrtimer. As hrtimers are initialized only at boot it's not possible to enable watchdog later - for me all watchdog threads started to eat 100% of CPU time, but they could just crash. Additionally, even if these threads would start properly, watchdog_disable_all_cpus was guarded by no_watchdog check, so you couldn't disable watchdog. To fix this, remove no_watchdog variable and use already existing watchdog_enabled variable.

2011-01-31Fix prlimit64 for suid/sgid processesKacper Kornet
Since check_prlimit_permission always fails in the case of SUID/GUID processes, such processes are not able to read or set their own limits. This commit changes this by assuming that process can always read/change its own limits.

Commit 927c7a9e92c4 ("perf: Fix race in callchains") introduced a mismatch in the sizing of struct callchain_cpus_entries. nr_cpu_ids must be used instead of num_possible_cpus(), or we might get out of bound memory accesses on some machines.

2011-01-26sched: Use rq->clock_task instead of rq->clock for correctly maintaining ↵Paul Turner
load averages The delta in clock_task is a more fair attribution of how much time a tg has been contributing load to the current cpu. While not really important it also means we're more in sync (by magnitude) with respect to periodic updates (since __update_curr deltas are clock_task based).

2011-01-26sched: Fix/remove redundant cfs_rq checksPaul Turner
Since updates are against an entity's queuing cfs_rq it's not possible to enter update_cfs_{shares,load} with a NULL cfs_rq. (Indeed, update_cfs_load would crash prior to the check if we did anyway since we load is examined during the initializers). Also, in the update_cfs_load case there's no point in maintaining averages for rq->cfs_rq since we don't perform shares distribution at that level -- NULL check is replaced accordingly. Thanks to Dan Carpenter for pointing out the deference before NULL check.

2011-01-26sched: Fix sign under-flows in wake_affinePaul Turner
While care is taken around the zero-point in effective_load to not exceed the instantaneous rq->weight, it's still possible (e.g. using wake_idx != 0) for (load + effective_load) to underflow. In this case the comparing the unsigned values can result in incorrect balanced decisions.

2011-01-26console: rename acquire/release_console_sem() to console_lock/unlock()Torben Hohn
The -rt patches change the console_semaphore to console_mutex. As a result, a quite large chunk of the patches changes all acquire/release_console_sem() to acquire/release_console_mutex() This commit makes things use more neutral function names which dont make implications about the underlying lock. The only real change is the return value of console_trylock which is inverted from try_acquire_console_sem() This patch also paves the way to switching console_sem from a semaphore to a mutex.
