2008-08-20cramfs: fix named-pipe handlingAl Viro1-46/+38
After commit a97c9bf33f4612e2aed6f000f6b1d268b6814f3c (fix cramfs making duplicate entries in inode cache) in kernel 2.6.14, named-pipe on cramfs does not work properly. It seems the commit make all named-pipe on cramfs share their inode (and named-pipe buffer). Make ..._test() refuse to merge inodes with ->i_ino == 1, take inode setup back to get_cramfs_inode() and make ->drop_inode() evict ones with ->i_ino == 1 immediately.

2008-08-20rtc: rtc-ds1374: fix 'no irq' case handlingAnton Vorontsov1-5/+5
On a PowerPC board with ds1374 RTC I'm getting this error while RTC tries to probe: rtc-ds1374 0-0068: unable to request IRQ This happens because I2C probing code (drivers/of/of_i2c.c) is specifying IRQ0 for 'no irq' case, which is correct. The driver handles this incorrectly, though. This patch fixes it.

2008-08-20mm: xip/ext2 fix block allocation raceNick Piggin1-1/+4
XIP can call into get_xip_mem concurrently with the same file,offset with create=1. This usually maps down to get_block, which expects the page lock to prevent such a situation. This causes ext2 to explode for one reason or another. Serialise those calls for the moment. For common usages today, I suspect get_xip_mem rarely is called to create new blocks. In future as XIP technologies evolve we might need to look at which operations require scalability, and rework the locking to suit.

2008-08-20mm: xip fix fault vs sparse page invalidate raceNick Piggin1-14/+46
XIP has a race between sparse pages being inserted into page tables, and sparse pages being zapped when its time to put a non-sparse page in. What can happen is that a process can be left with a dangling sparse page in a MAP_SHARED mapping, while the rest of the world sees the non-sparse version. Ie. data corruption. Guard these operations with a seqlock, making fault-in-sparse-pages the slowpath, and try-to-unmap-sparse-pages the fastpath.

2008-08-20mm: dirty page tracking race fixNick Piggin3-7/+11
There is a race with dirty page accounting where a page may not properly be accounted for. clear_page_dirty_for_io() calls page_mkclean; then TestClearPageDirty. page_mkclean walks the rmaps for that page, and for each one it cleans and write protects the pte if it was dirty. It uses page_check_address to find the pte. That function has a shortcut to avoid the ptl if the pte is not present. Unfortunately, the pte can be switched to not-present then back to present by other code while holding the page table lock -- this should not be a signal for page_mkclean to ignore that pte, because it may be dirty. For example, powerpc64's set_pte_at will clear a previously present pte before setting it to the desired value. There may also be other code in core mm or in arch which do similar things. The consequence of the bug is loss of data integrity due to msync, and loss of dirty page accounting accuracy. XIP's __xip_unmap could easily also be unreliable (depending on the exact XIP locking scheme), which can lead to data corruption. Fix this by having an option to always take ptl to check the pte in page_check_address. It's possible to retain this optimization for page_referenced and try_to_unmap.

When user calls sys_setpriority(PRIO_PGRP ...) on a NPTL style multi-LWP process, only the task leader of the process is affected, all other sibling LWP threads didn't receive the setting. The problem was that the iterator used in sys_setpriority() only iteartes over one task for each process, ignoring all other sibling thread.

2008-08-20bootmem: fix aligning of node-relative indexes and offsetsJohannes Weiner1-6/+29
Absolute alignment requirements may never be applied to node-relative offsets. Andreas Herrmann spotted this flaw when a bootmem allocation on an unaligned node was itself not aligned because the combination of an unaligned node with an aligned offset into that node is not garuanteed to be aligned itself. This patch introduces two helper functions that align a node-relative index or offset with respect to the node's starting address so that the absolute PFN or virtual address that results from combining the two satisfies the requested alignment. Then all the broken ALIGN()s in alloc_bootmem_core() are replaced by these helpers.

2008-08-20binfmt_misc: fix false -ENOEXEC when coupled with other binary handlersPavel Emelyanov1-2/+2
In case the binfmt_misc binary handler is registered *before* the e.g. script one (when for example being compiled as a module) the following situation may occur: 1. user launches a script, whose interpreter is a misc binary; 2. the load_misc_binary sets the misc_bang and returns -ENOEVEC, since the binary is a script; 3. the load_script_binary loads one and calls for search_binary_hander to run the interpreter; 4. the load_misc_binary is called again, but refuses to load the binary due to misc_bang bit set. The fix is to move the misc_bang setting lower - prior to the actual call to the search_binary_handler.

And we certainly can't export an arch/ directory which doesn't even exist. And the only thing that we seem to include from the arch/ directory is <asm/arch/ptrace.h> from <asm/ptrace.h> ... and that isn't exported in either arch-v10 or arch-v32 _anyway_.

2008-08-20vfat: fix 'sync' mount deadlock due to BKL->lock_super conversionLinus Torvalds1-7/+3
There was another FAT BKL conversion deadlock reported by Bart Trojanowski due to the BKL being used as a recursive lock by FAT, which was missed because it only triggers with 'sync' (or 'dirsync') mounts. The recursion worked for the BKL, but after the conversion to lock_super (which uses a mutex), it just deadlocks. Thanks to Bart for debugging this and testing the fix.

The lock_super() there had been just an automatic conversion of the kernel lock to the superblock lock, but no locking was actually needed there, since the code in fat_write_inode already protected all relevant accesses with a spinlock (sbi->inode_hash_lock to be exact). The only code inside the BKL (and thus the superblock lock) was accesses tp local variables or calls to functions that have long been SMP-safe (i.e. sb_bread, mark_buffe_dirty and brlese).

2008-08-20powerpc: Fix vio_bus_probe oops on probe errorBrian King1-1/+1
When CMO is enabled and booted on a non CMO system and the VIO device's probe function fails, an oops can result since vio_cmo_bus_remove is called when it should not. This fixes it by avoiding the vio_cmo_bus_remove call on platforms that don't implement CMO. cpu 0x0: Vector: 300 (Data Access) at [c00000000e13b3d0] pc: c000000000020d34: .vio_cmo_bus_remove+0xc0/0x1f4 lr: c000000000020ca4: .vio_cmo_bus_remove+0x30/0x1f4 sp: c00000000e13b650 msr: 8000000000009032 dar: 0 dsisr: 40000000 current = 0xc00000000e0566c0 paca = 0xc0000000006f9b80 pid = 2428, comm = modprobe enter ? for help [c00000000e13b6e0] c000000000021d94 .vio_bus_probe+0x2f8/0x33c [c00000000e13b7a0] c00000000029fc88 .driver_probe_device+0x13c/0x200 [c00000000e13b830] c00000000029fdac .__driver_attach+0x60/0xa4 [c00000000e13b8c0] c00000000029f050 .bus_for_each_dev+0x80/0xd8 [c00000000e13b980] c00000000029f9ec .driver_attach+0x28/0x40 [c00000000e13ba00] c00000000029f630 .bus_add_driver+0xd4/0x284 [c00000000e13baa0] c0000000002a01bc .driver_register+0xc4/0x198 [c00000000e13bb50] c00000000002168c .vio_register_driver+0x40/0x5c [c00000000e13bbe0] d0000000003b3f1c .ibmvfc_module_init+0x70/0x109c [ibmvfc] [c00000000e13bc70] c0000000000acf08 .sys_init_module+0x184c/0x1a10 [c00000000e13be30] c000000000008748 syscall_exit+0x0/0x40 Signed-off-by: Brian King <brking@linux.vnet.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Paul Mackerras <paulus@samba.org>
2008-08-20powerpc/ibmebus: Restore "name" sysfs attribute on ibmebus devicesJoachim Fenkes2-12/+10
Recent of_platform changes made of_bus_type_init() overwrite the bus type's .dev_attrs list, meaning that the "name" attribute that ibmebus devices previously had is no longer present. This is a user-visible regression which breaks the userspace eHCA support, since the eHCA userspace driver relies on the name attribute to check for valid adapters. This fixes it by providing the "name" attribute in the generic OF device code instead. Tested on POWER.

2008-08-19ieee1394: sbp2: let nodemgr retry node updates during bus reset seriesStefan Richter1-7/+18
sbp2 was too quick to report .update() to the ieee1394 core as failed. (Logged as "Failed to reconnect to sbp2 device!".) The core would then unbind sbp2 from the device. This is not justified if the .update() failed because another bus reset happened. We check this and tell the ieee1394 that .update() succeeded, and the core will call sbp2's .update() for the new bus reset as well. This improves reconnection/re-login especially on buses with several disks as they may issue bus resets in close succession when they come online. Tested by Damien Benoist.

Regression since commit 73cf60232ef16e1f8a64defa97214a1722db1e6c, "ieee1394: use class iteration api": The two loops for (1.) driver updates and (2.) driver probes were replaced by a single loop with bogus needs_probe checks. Hence updates and probes were now intermixed, and especially sbp2 updates (reconnects) held up longer than necessary. While we fix it, change the needs_probe flag to bool type for clarity.
