Fix up conflicts in fs/nfsd/vfs.c with the vfs-scale work. The vfs-scale work touched some msnfs cases, and this merge removes support for that entirely, so the conflict was trivial to resolve.
2011-01-07fs: dcache scale dentry refcountNick Piggin1-1/+1
Make d_count non-atomic and protect it with d_lock. This allows us to ensure a 0 refcount dentry remains 0 without dcache_lock. It is also fairly natural when we start protecting many other dentry members with d_lock. Signed-off-by: Nick Piggin <npiggin@kernel.dk>

2011-01-04locks: eliminate fl_mylease callbackJ. Bruce Fields1-7/+1
The nfs server only supports read delegations for now, so we don't care how conflicts are determined. All we care is that unlocks are recognized as matching the leases they are meant to remove. After the last patch, a comparison of struct files will work for that purpose. So we no longer need this callback. Signed-off-by: J. Bruce Fields <bfields@redhat.com>

A minor oversight from f7347ce4ee7c65415f84be915c018473e7076f31, "fasync: re-organize fasync entry insertion to allow it under a spinlock": this cleanup-on-error was only needed to handle -ENOMEM. Now that we're preallocating it's unneeded. Signed-off-by: J. Bruce Fields <bfields@redhat.com>

The caller allocated it, the caller should free it. The only issue so far is that we could change the flp pointer even on an error return if the fl_change callback failed. But we can simply move the flp assignment after the fl_change invocation, as the callers don't care about the flp return value if the setlease call failed.

2010-10-27fasync: re-organize fasync entry insertion to allow it under a spinlockLinus Torvalds1-1/+17
You currently cannot use "fasync_helper()" in an atomic environment to insert a new fasync entry, because it will need to allocate the new "struct fasync_struct". Yet fcntl_setlease() wants to call this under lock_flocks(), which is in the process of being converted from the BKL to a spinlock. In order to fix this, this abstracts out the actual fasync list insertion and the fasync allocations into functions of their own, and teaches fs/locks.c to pre-allocate the fasync_struct entry. That way the actual list insertion can happen while holding the required spinlock.

2010-10-26procfs: fix numbering in /proc/locksJerome Marchand1-8/+11
The lock number in /proc/locks (first field) is implemented by a counter (private field of struct seq_file) which is incremented at each call of locks_show() and reset to 1 in locks_start() whatever the offset is. It should be reset according to the actual position in the list. Because of this, the numbering erratically restarts at 1 several times when reading a long /proc/locks file. Moreover, locks_show() can be called twice to print a single line thus skipping a number. The counter should be incremented in locks_next(). And last, pos is a loff_t, which can be bigger than a pointer, so we don't use the pointer as an integer anymore, and allocate a loff_t instead.

2010-10-05fs/locks.c: prepare for BKL removalArnd Bergmann1-44/+68
This prepares the removal of the big kernel lock from the file locking code. We still use the BKL as long as fs/lockd uses it and ceph might sleep, but we can flip the definition to a private spinlock as soon as that's done. All users outside of fs/lockd get converted to use lock_flocks() instead of lock_kernel() where appropriate. Based on an earlier patch to use a spinlock from Matthew Wilcox, who has attempted this a few times before, the earliest patch from over 10 years ago turned it into a semaphore, which ended up being slower than the BKL and was subsequently reverted. Someone should do some serious performance testing when this becomes a spinlock, since this has caused problems before. Using a spinlock should be at least as good as the BKL in theory, but who knows...

2009-04-24lockd: call locks_release_private to cleanup per-filesystem stateFelix Blyakher1-1/+2
For every lock request lockd creates a new file_lock object in nlmsvc_setgrantargs() by copying the passed in file_lock with locks_copy_lock(). A filesystem can attach it's own lock_operations vector to the file_lock. It has to be cleaned up at the end of the file_lock's life. However, lockd doesn't do it today, yet it asserts in nlmclnt_release_lockargs() that the per-filesystem state is clean. This patch fixes it by exporting locks_release_private() and adding it to nlmsvc_freegrantargs(), to be symmetrical to creating a file_lock in nlmsvc_setgrantargs().

Allow filesystem's ->lock() method to call posix_lock_file() instead of posix_lock_file_wait(), and return FILE_LOCK_DEFERRED.

2008-07-25locks: add special return value for asynchronous locksMiklos Szeredi1-14/+14
Use a special error value FILE_LOCK_DEFERRED to mean that a locking operation returned asynchronously. This is returned by posix_lock_file() for sleeping locks to mean that the lock has been queued on the block list, and will be woken up when it might become available and needs to be retried (either fl_lmops->fl_notify() is called or fl_wait is woken up). f_op->lock() to mean either the above, or that the filesystem will call back with fl_lmops->fl_grant() when the result of the locking operation is known. The filesystem can do this for sleeping as well as non-sleeping locks. This is to make sure, that return values of -EAGAIN and -EINPROGRESS by filesystems are not mistaken to mean an asynchronous locking. This also makes error handling in fs/locks.c and lockd/svclock.c slightly cleaner. Signed-off-by: Miklos Szeredi <mszeredi@suse.cz> Cc: Trond Myklebust <trond.myklebust@fys.uio.no> Cc: "J.

2008-05-11Add new 'cond_resched_bkl()' helper functionLinus Torvalds1-1/+1
It acts exactly like a regular 'cond_resched()', but will not get optimized away when CONFIG_PREEMPT is set. Normal kernel code is already preemptable in the presense of CONFIG_PREEMPT, so cond_resched() is optimized away (see commit 02b67cc3ba36bdba351d6c3a00593f4ec550d9d3 "sched: do not do cond_resched() when CONFIG_PREEMPT"). But when wanting to conditionally reschedule while holding a lock, you need to use "cond_sched_lock(lock)", and the new function is the BKL equivalent of that. Also make fs/locks.c use it.

2008-05-06[PATCH] fix SMP ordering hole in fcntl_setlk()Al Viro1-2/+15
fcntl_setlk()/close() race prevention has a subtle hole - we need to make sure that if we *do* have an fcntl/close race on SMP box, the access to descriptor table and inode->i_flock won't get reordered. As it is, we get STORE inode->i_flock, LOAD descriptor table entry vs. STORE descriptor table entry, LOAD inode->i_flock with not a single lock in common on both sides. We do have BKL around the first STORE, but check in locks_remove_posix() is outside of BKL and for a good reason - we don't want BKL on common path of close(2). Solution is to hold ->file_lock around fcheck() in there; that orders us wrt removal from descriptor table that preceded locks_remove_posix() on close path and we either come first (in which case eviction will be handled by the close side) or we'll see the effect of close and do eviction ourselves. Note that even though it's read-only access, we do need ->file_lock here - rcu_read_lock() won't be enough to order the things. Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>

2008-04-14locks: fix possible infinite loop in fcntl(F_SETLKW) over nfsJ. Bruce Fields1-20/+28
Miklos Szeredi found the bug: "Basically what happens is that on the server nlm_fopen() calls nfsd_open() which returns -EACCES, to which nlm_fopen() returns NLM_LCK_DENIED. "On the client this will turn into a -EAGAIN (nlm_stat_to_errno()), which in will cause fcntl_setlk() to retry forever." So, for example, opening a file on an nfs filesystem, changing permissions to forbid further access, then trying to lock the file, could result in an infinite loop. And Trond Myklebust identified the culprit, from Marc Eshel and I: 7723ec9777d9832849b76475b1a21a2872a40d20 "locks: factor out generic/filesystem switch from setlock code" That commit claimed to just be reshuffling code, but actually introduced a behavioral change by calling the lock method repeatedly as long as it returned -EAGAIN. We assumed this would be safe, since we assumed a lock of type SETLKW would only return with either success or an error other than -EAGAIN. However, nfs does can in fact return -EAGAIN in this situation, and independently of whether that behavior is correct or not, we don't actually need this change, and it seems far safer not to depend on such assumptions about the filesystem's ->lock method. Therefore, revert the problematic part of the original commit. This leaves vfs_lock_file() and its other callers unchanged, while returning fcntl_setlk and fcntl_setlk64 to their former behavior.

2008-02-08Pidns: make full use of xxx_vnr() callsPavel Emelyanov1-3/+2
Some time ago the xxx_vnr() calls (e.g. pid_vnr or find_task_by_vpid) were _all_ converted to operate on the current pid namespace. After this each call like xxx_nr_ns(foo, current->nsproxy->pid_ns) is nothing but a xxx_vnr(foo) one. Switch all the xxx_nr_ns() callers to use the xxx_vnr() calls where appropriate.

2008-02-03pid-namespaces-vs-locks-interactionVitaliy Gusev1-6/+23
fcntl(F_GETLK,..) can return pid of process for not current pid namespace (if process is belonged to the several namespaces). It is true also for pids in /proc/locks. So correct behavior is saving pointer to the struct pid of the process lock owner. Signed-off-by: Vitaliy Gusev <vgusev@openvz.org> Acked-by: Serge Hallyn <serue@us.ibm.com> Cc: "Eric W.
