2006-10-01[PATCH] Generic ioremap_page_range: flush_cache_vmapHaavard Skinnemoen1-3/+1
The existing implementation of ioremap_page_range(), which was taken from i386, does this: flush_cache_all(); /* modify page tables */ flush_tlb_all(); I think this is a bit defensive, so this patch changes the generic implementation to do: /* modify page tables */ flush_cache_vmap(start, end); instead, which is similar to what vmalloc() does. This should still be correct because we never modify existing PTEs. According to James Bottomley: The problem the flush_tlb_all() is trying to solve is to avoid stale tlb entries in the ioremap area. We're just being conservative by flushing on both map and unmap. Technically what vmalloc/vfree does (only flush the tlb on unmap) is just fine because it means that the only tlb entries in the remap area must belong to in-use mappings.

This patch adds a generic implementation of ioremap_page_range() in lib/ioremap.c based on the i386 implementation.

2006-10-01[PATCH] stack overflow safe kdump: safe_smp_processor_id()Fernando Vazquez2-0/+29
This is a the first of a series of patch-sets aiming at making kdump more robust against stack overflows. This patch set does the following: * Add safe_smp_processor_id function to i386 architecture (this function was inspired by the x86_64 function of the same name). * Substitute "smp_processor_id" with the stack overflow-safe "safe_smp_processor_id" in the reboot path to the second kernel. This patch: On the event of a stack overflow critical data that usually resides at the bottom of the stack is likely to be stomped and, consequently, its use should be avoided. In particular, in the i386 and IA64 architectures the macro smp_processor_id ultimately makes use of the "cpu" member of struct thread_info which resides at the bottom of the stack. x86_64, on the other hand, is not affected by this problem because it benefits from the use of the PDA infrastructure. To circumvent this problem I suggest implementing "safe_smp_processor_id()" (it already exists in x86_64) for i386 and IA64 and use it as a replacement for smp_processor_id in the reboot path to the dump capture kernel. This is a possible implementation for i386. Signed-off-by: Fernando Vazquez <fernando@intellilink.co.jp> Looks-reasonable-to: Andi Kleen <ak@muc.de> Acked-by: "Eric W.

2006-10-01[PATCH] r/o bind mounts: monitor zeroing of i_nlinkDave Hansen15-21/+26

2006-10-01[PATCH] r/o bind mounts: clean up OCFS2 nlink handlingMark Fasheh1-20/+19
OCFS2 does some operations on i_nlink, then reverts them if some of its operations fail to complete. This does not fit in well with the drop_nlink() logic where we expect i_nlink to stay at zero once it gets there. So, delay all of the nlink operations until we're sure that the operations have completed. Also, introduce a small helper to check whether an inode has proper "unlinkable" i_nlink counts no matter whether it is a directory or regular inode. This patch is broken out from the others because it does contain some logical changes.

2006-10-01[PATCH] r/o bind mounts: unlink: monitor i_nlinkDave Hansen28-93/+83
When a filesystem decrements i_nlink to zero, it means that a write must be performed in order to drop the inode from the filesystem. We're shortly going to have keep filesystems from being remounted r/o between the time that this i_nlink decrement and that write occurs. So, add a little helper function to do the decrements. We'll tie into it in a bit to note when i_nlink hits zero.

2006-10-01[PATCH] r/o bind mount prepwork: move open_namei()'s vfs_create()Dave Hansen1-10/+20
The code around vfs_create() in open_namei() is getting a bit too complex. Right now, there is at least the reference count on the dentry, and the i_mutex to worry about. Soon, we'll also have mnt_writecount. So, break the vfs_create() call out of open_namei(), and into a helper function. This duplicates the call to may_open(), but that isn't such a bad thing since the arguments (acc_mode and flag) were being heavily massaged anyway.

2006-10-01[PATCH] reiserfs: eliminate minimum window size for bitmap searchingJeff Mahoney1-22/+1
When a file system becomes fragmented (using MythTV, for example), the bigalloc window searching ends up causing huge performance problems. In a file system presented by a user experiencing this bug, the file system was 90% free, but no 32-block free windows existed on the entire file system. This causes the allocator to scan the entire file system for each 128k write before backing down to searching for individual blocks. In the end, finding a contiguous window for all the blocks in a write is an advantageous special case, but one that can be found naturally when such a window exists anyway. This patch removes the bigalloc window searching, and has been proven to fix the test case described above.

2006-10-01[PATCH] reiserfs: use generic_file_open for open() checksJeff Mahoney1-0/+1
The other common disk-based file systems (I checked ext[23], xfs, jfs) check to ensure that opens of files > 2 GB fail unless O_LARGEFILE is specified. They check via generic_file_open or their own open routine. ReiserFS doesn't have an f_op->open defined, and as such, it's possible to open files > 2 GB without O_LARGEFILE.

2006-10-01[PATCH] reiserfs: on-demand bitmap loadingJeff Mahoney4-91/+70
This is the patch the three previous ones have been leading up to. It changes the behavior of ReiserFS from loading and caching all the bitmaps as special, to treating the bitmaps like any other bit of metadata and just letting the system-wide caches figure out what to hang on to. Buffer heads are allocated on the fly, so there is no need to retain pointers to all of them. The caching of the metadata occurs when the data is read and updated, and is considered invalid and uncached until then. I needed to remove the vs-4040 check for performing a duplicate operation on a particular bit. The reason is that while the other sites for working with bitmaps are allowed to schedule, is_reusable() is called from do_balance(), which will panic if a schedule occurs in certain places. The benefit of on-demand bitmaps clearly outweighs a sanity check that depends on a compile-time option that is discouraged.

2006-10-01[PATCH] reiserfs: reorganize bitmap loading functionsJeff Mahoney4-113/+94
This patch moves the bitmap loading code from super.c to bitmap.c The code is also restructured somewhat. The only difference between new format bitmaps and old format bitmaps is where they are. That's a two liner before loading the block to use the correct one. There's no need for an entirely separate code path. The load path is generally the same, with the pattern being to throw out a bunch of requests and then wait for them, then cache the metadata from the contents. Again, like the previous patches, the purpose is to set up for later ones. Update: There was a bug in the previously posted version of this that resulted in corruption. The problem was that bitmap 0 on new format file systems must be treated specially, and wasn't. A stupid bug with an easy fix. This is hopefully the last fix for the disaster that is the reiserfs bitmap patch set. If a bitmap block was full, first_zero_hint would end up at zero since it would never be changed from it's zeroed out value. This just sets it beyond the end of the bitmap block. If any bits are freed, it will be reset to a valid bit. When info->free_count = 0, then we already know it's full.

2006-10-01[PATCH] reiserfs: clean up bitmap block buffer head referencesJeff Mahoney2-49/+71
Similar to the SB_JOURNAL cleanup that was accepted a while ago, this patch uses a temporary variable for buffer head references from the bitmap info array. This makes the code much more readable in some areas. It also uses proper reference counting, doing a get_bh() after using the pointer from the array and brelse()'ing it later. This may seem silly, but a later patch will replace the simple temporary variables with an actual read, so the reference freeing will be used then.

2006-10-01[PATCH] reiserfs: fix is_reusable bitmap check to not traverse the bitmap ↵Jeff Mahoney3-15/+28
info array There is a check in is_reusable to determine if a particular block is a bitmap block. It verifies this by going through the array of bitmap block buffer heads and comparing the block number to each one. Bitmap blocks are at defined locations on the disk in both old and current formats. Simply checking against the known good values is enough. This is a trivial optimization for a non-production codepath, but this is the first in a series of patches that will ultimately remove the buffer heads from that array.

2006-10-01[PATCH] kill wall_jiffiesAtsushi Nemoto26-190/+35
With 2.6.18-rc4-mm2, now wall_jiffies will always be the same as jiffies. So we can kill wall_jiffies completely. This is just a cleanup and logically should not change any real behavior except for one thing: RTC updating code in (old) ppc and xtensa use a condition "jiffies - wall_jiffies == 1". This condition is never met so I suppose it is just a bug. I just remove that condition only instead of kill the whole "if" block.

2006-10-01[PATCH] ntp: convert to the NTP4 reference modelRoman Zippel2-38/+24
This converts the kernel ntp model into a model which matches the nanokernel reference implementations. The previous patches already increased the resolution and precision of the computations, so that this conversion becomes quite simple. <linux@horizon.com> explains: The original NTP kernel interface was defined in units of microseconds. That's what Linux implements. As computers have gotten faster and can now split microseconds easily, a new kernel interface using nanosecond units was defined ("the nanokernel", confusing as that name is to OS hackers), and there's an STA_NANO bit in the adjtimex() status field to tell the application which units it's using. The current ntpd supports both, but Linux loses some possible timing resolution because of quantization effects, and the ntpd hackers would really like to be able to drop the backwards compatibility code. Ulrich Windl has been maintaining a patch set to do the conversion for years, but it's hard to keep in sync.
