2006-04-26[PATCH] Remove __devinit and __cpuinit from notifier_call definitionsChandra Seetharaman19-19/+19
Few of the notifier_chain_register() callers use __init in the definition of notifier_call. It is incorrect as the function definition should be available after the initializations (they do not unregister them during initializations). This patch fixes all such usages to _not_ have the notifier_call __init section. Signed-off-by: Chandra Seetharaman <sekharan@us.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2006-04-26[PATCH] Remove __devinitdata from notifier block definitionsChandra Seetharaman9-9/+9
Few of the notifier_chain_register() callers use __devinitdata in the definition of notifier_block data structure. It is incorrect as the data structure should be available after the initializations (they do not unregister them during initializations). This was leading to an oops when notifier_chain_register() call is invoked for those callback chains after initialization. This patch fixes all such usages to _not_ have the notifier_block data structure in the init data section.

2006-04-26[PATCH] LSM: add missing hook to do_compat_readv_writev()James Morris1-0/+4
This patch addresses a flaw in LSM, where there is no mediation of readv() and writev() in for 32-bit compatible apps using a 64-bit kernel. This bug was discovered and fixed initially in the native readv/writev code [1], but was not fixed in the compat code. Thanks to Al for spotting this one.

2006-04-26[PATCH] protect ext3 ioctl modifying append_only, immutable, etc. with i_mutexAl Viro1-4/+14

2006-04-26[PATCH] fix mips sys32_p{read,write}Al Viro1-62/+2
Switched to use of sys_pread64()/sys_pwrite64() rather than keep duplicating their guts; among the little things that had been missing there were such as ret = security_file_permission (file, MAY_READ); Gotta love the LSM robustness, right?

2006-04-26[PATCH] forgotten ->b_data in memcpy() call in ext3/resize.c (oopsable)Al Viro1-1/+1
sbi->s_group_desc is an array of pointers to buffer_head. memcpy() of buffer size from address of buffer_head is a bad idea - it will generate junk in any case, may oops if buffer_head is close to the end of slab page and next page is not mapped and isn't what was intended there. IOW, ->b_data is missing in that call. Fortunately, result doesn't go into the primary on-disk data structures, so only backup ones get crap written to them; that had allowed this bug to remain unnoticed until now.

2006-04-26[PATCH] sky2: reschedule if irq still pendingStephen Hemminger2-12/+26
This is a workaround for the case edge-triggered irq's. Several users seem to have broken configurations sharing edge-triggered irq's. To avoid losing IRQ's, reshedule if more work arrives. The changes to netdevice.h are to extract the part that puts device back in list into separate inline.

2006-04-26[PATCH] Add support for the sys_vmsplice syscallJens Axboe9-43/+268
sys_splice() moves data to/from pipes with a file input/output. sys_vmsplice() moves data to a pipe, with the input being a user address range instead. This uses an approach suggested by Linus, where we can hold partial ranges inside the pages[] map. Hopefully this will be useful for network receive support as well.

2006-04-26[fuse] fix race between checking and setting file->private_dataMiklos Szeredi1-5/+8
BKL does not protect against races if the task may sleep between checking and setting a value. So move checking of file->private_data near to setting it in fuse_fill_super(). Found by Al Viro. Signed-off-by: Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
2006-04-26[fuse] fix deadlock between fuse_put_super() and request_end(), try #2Miklos Szeredi1-2/+11
A deadlock was possible, when the last reference to the superblock was held due to a background request containing a file reference. Releasing the file would release the vfsmount which in turn would release the superblock. Since sbput_sem is held during the fput() and fuse_put_super() tries to acquire this same semaphore, a deadlock results. The solution is to move the fput() outside the region protected by sbput_sem. Signed-off-by: Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
2006-04-26Revert "[fuse] fix deadlock between fuse_put_super() and request_end()"Miklos Szeredi3-36/+31
This reverts 73ce8355c243a434524a34c05cc417dd0467996e commit. It was wrong, because it didn't take into account the requirement, that iput() for background requests must be performed synchronously with ->put_super(), otherwise active inodes may remain after unmount. The right solution is to keep the sbput_sem and perform iput() within the locked region, but move fput() outside sbput_sem. Signed-off-by: Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
2006-04-26[PATCH] splice: fix offset problemsJens Axboe1-19/+27
Make the move_from_pipe() actors return number of bytes processed, then move_from_pipe() can decide more cleverly when to move on to the next buffer. This fixes problems with pipe offset and differing file offset. Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <axboe@suse.de>

2006-04-25[ARM] 3484/1: Correct AEABI CFLAGS for correct enum handlingRichard Purdie1-1/+1
Patch from Richard Purdie The AAPCS says that enums can be variably sized depending on the range of valid values. This is not the accepted behaviour under linux so for compatibility gcc has an aapcs-linux target, the main difference being that enums are always of type int.

2006-04-24[NETFILTER]: nf_conntrack: Fix module refcount dropping too farYasuyuki Kozakai2-9/+4
If nf_ct_l3proto_find_get() fails to get the refcount of nf_ct_l3proto_generic, nf_ct_l3proto_put() will drop the refcount too far. This gets rid of '.me = THIS_MODULE' of nf_ct_l3proto_generic so that nf_ct_l3proto_find_get() doesn't try to get refcount of it. It's OK because its symbol is usable until nf_conntrack.ko is unloaded. This also kills unnecessary NULL pointer check as well. __nf_ct_proto_find() allways returns non-NULL pointer.
