2008-08-20fix setpriority(PRIO_PGRP) thread iterator breakageKen Chen1-4/+4
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. Introduce a new macro do_each_pid_thread / while_each_pid_thread to walk each thread of a process. Convert 4 call sites in {set/get}priority and ioprio_{set/get}.

2008-08-14security: Fix setting of PF_SUPERPRIV by __capable()David Howells2-11/+15
Fix the setting of PF_SUPERPRIV by __capable() as it could corrupt the flags the target process if that is not the current process and it is trying to change its own flags in a different way at the same time. __capable() is using neither atomic ops nor locking to protect t->flags. This patch removes __capable() and introduces has_capability() that doesn't set PF_SUPERPRIV on the process being queried. This patch further splits security_ptrace() in two: (1) security_ptrace_may_access(). This passes judgement on whether one process may access another only (PTRACE_MODE_ATTACH for ptrace() and PTRACE_MODE_READ for /proc), and takes a pointer to the child process. current is the parent. (2) security_ptrace_traceme(). This passes judgement on PTRACE_TRACEME only, and takes only a pointer to the parent process. current is the child. In Smack and commoncap, this uses has_capability() to determine whether the parent will be permitted to use PTRACE_ATTACH if normal checks fail. This does not set PF_SUPERPRIV. Two of the instances of __capable() actually only act on current, and so have been changed to calls to capable(). Of the places that were using __capable(): (1) The OOM killer calls __capable() thrice when weighing the killability of a process. All of these now use has_capability(). (2) cap_ptrace() and smack_ptrace() were using __capable() to check to see whether the parent was allowed to trace any process. As mentioned above, these have been split. For PTRACE_ATTACH and /proc, capable() is now used, and for PTRACE_TRACEME, has_capability() is used. (3) cap_safe_nice() only ever saw current, so now uses capable(). (4) smack_setprocattr() rejected accesses to tasks other than current just after calling __capable(), so the order of these two tests have been switched and capable() is used instead. (5) In smack_file_send_sigiotask(), we need to allow privileged processes to receive SIGIO on files they're manipulating. (6) In smack_task_wait(), we let a process wait for a privileged process, whether or not the process doing the waiting is privileged. I've tested this with the LTP SELinux and syscalls testscripts.

With 2.6.27-rc3, I hit a kernel panic when running volanoMark on my new x86_64 machine. I also hit it with other 2.6.27-rc kernels. See below log.

2008-08-12modules: extend initcall_debug functionality to the module loaderArjan van de Ven1-1/+1
The kernel has this really nice facility where if you put "initcall_debug" on the kernel commandline, it'll print which function it's going to execute just before calling an initcall, and then after the call completes it will 1) print if it had an error code 2) checks for a few simple bugs (like leaving irqs off) and 3) print how long the init call took in milliseconds. While trying to optimize the boot speed of my laptop, I have been loving number 3 to figure out what to optimize... ... and then I wished that the same thing was done for module loading. This patch makes the module loader use this exact same functionality; it's a logical extension in my view (since modules are just sort of late binding initcalls anyway) and so far I've found it quite useful in finding where things are too slow in my boot.

This fix also solves the problem with x86-microcode. I've sent alternative patches for microcode, but as this "rely on set_cpus_allowed_ptr() being workable in cpu-hotplug(CPU_ONLINE, ...)" assumption seems to be more broad than what we thought, perhaps this fix should be applied. With this patch we define that by the moment CPU_ONLINE is being sent, a 'cpu' is online and ready for tasks to be migrated onto it.

Nice debugging work. I'd suggest something like the attached (boot tested) patch as the simple fix for now. I expect the benefits from the less synchronized, multiple-in-flight-data global queue will still outweigh the costs of dynamic allocations. But if worst comes to worst then we just go back to a globally synchronous one-at-a-time implementation, but that would be pretty sad! Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>
2008-08-11sched: fix mysql+oltp regressionMike Galbraith1-7/+12
Defer commit 6d299f1b53b84e2665f402d9bcc494800aba6386 to the next release. Testing of the tip/sched/clock tree revealed a mysql+oltp regression which bisection eventually traced back to this commit in mainline. Pertinent test results: Three run sysbench averages, throughput units in read/write requests/sec. clients 1 2 4 8 16 32 64 6e0534f 9646 17876 34774 33868 32230 30767 29441 2.6.26.1 9112 17936 34652 33383 31929 30665 29232 6d299f1 9112 14637 28370 33339 32038 30762 29204 Note: subsequent commits hide the majority of this regression until you apply the clock fixes, at which time it reemerges at full magnitude. We cannot see anything bad about the change itself so we defer it to the next release until this problem is fully analysed.

2008-08-11lockdep: re-annotate scheduler runqueuesPeter Zijlstra2-5/+14
Instead of using a per-rq lock class, use the regular nesting operations. However, take extra care with double_lock_balance() as it can release the already held rq->lock (and therefore change its nesting class). So what can happen is: spin_lock(rq->lock); // this rq subclass 0 double_lock_balance(rq, other_rq); // release rq // acquire other_rq->lock subclass 0 // acquire rq->lock subclass 1 spin_unlock(other_rq->lock); leaving you with rq->lock in subclass 1 So a subsequent double_lock_balance() call can try to nest a subclass 1 lock while already holding a subclass 1 lock. Fix this by introducing double_unlock_balance() which releases the other rq's lock, but also re-sets the subclass for this rq's lock to 0.
