2008-11-09net: unix: fix inflight counting bug in garbage collectorMiklos Szeredi1-0/+1
Previously I assumed that the receive queues of candidates don't change during the GC. This is only half true, nothing can be received from the queues (see comment in unix_gc()), but buffers could be added through the other half of the socket pair, which may still have file descriptors referring to it. This can result in inc_inflight_move_tail() erronously increasing the "inflight" counter for a unix socket for which dec_inflight() wasn't previously called. This in turn can trigger the "BUG_ON(total_refs < inflight_refs)" in a later garbage collection run. Fix this by only manipulating the "inflight" counter for sockets which are candidates themselves. Duplicating the file references in unix_attach_fds() is also needed to prevent a socket becoming a candidate for GC while the skb that contains it is not yet queued.

2008-11-09clarify usage expectations for cnt32_to_63()Nicolas Pitre1-6/+16
Currently, all existing users of cnt32_to_63() are fine since the CPU architectures where it is used don't do read access reordering, and user mode preemption is disabled already. It is nevertheless a good idea to better elaborate usage requirements wrt preemption, and use an explicit memory barrier on SMP to avoid different CPUs accessing the counter value in the wrong order. On UP a simple compiler barrier is sufficient.

2008-11-08Fix __pfn_to_page(pfn) for CONFIG_DISCONTIGMEM=yRafael J. Wysocki1-1/+1
Fix the __pfn_to_page(pfn) macro so that it doesn't evaluate its argument twice in the CONFIG_DISCONTIGMEM=y case, because 'pfn' may be a result of a funtion call having side effects. For example, the hibernation code applies pfn_to_page(pfn) to the result of a function returning the pfn corresponding to the next set bit in a bitmap and the current bit position is modified on each call. This leads to "interesting" failures for CONFIG_DISCONTIGMEM=y due to the current behavior of __pfn_to_page(pfn). Signed-off-by: Rafael J.

2008-11-06net: Fix recursive descent in __scm_destroy().David S. Miller2-2/+5
__scm_destroy() walks the list of file descriptors in the scm_fp_list pointed to by the scm_cookie argument. Those, in turn, can close sockets and invoke __scm_destroy() again. There is nothing which limits how deeply this can occur. The idea for how to fix this is from Linus. Basically, we do all of the fput()s at the top level by collecting all of the scm_fp_list objects hit by an fput(). Inside of the initial __scm_destroy() we keep running the list until it is empty.

Fix the hrtimer_add_expires_ns() function. It should take a 'u64 ns' argument, but rather takes an 'unsigned long ns' argument - which might only be 32-bits. On FRV, this results in the kernel locking up because hrtimer_forward() passes the result of a 64-bit multiplication to this function, for which the compiler discards the top 32-bits - something that didn't happen when ktime_add_ns() was called directly.

2008-11-06cpumask: introduce new API, without changing anythingRusty Russell3-2/+517
Impact: introduce new APIs We want to deprecate cpumasks on the stack, as we are headed for gynormous numbers of CPUs. Eventually, we want to head towards an undefined 'struct cpumask' so they can never be declared on stack. 1) New cpumask functions which take pointers instead of copies. (cpus_* -> cpumask_*) 2) Several new helpers to reduce requirements for temporary cpumasks (cpumask_first_and, cpumask_next_and, cpumask_any_and) 3) Helpers for declaring cpumasks on or offstack for large NR_CPUS (cpumask_var_t, alloc_cpumask_var and free_cpumask_var) 4) 'struct cpumask' for explicitness and to mark new-style code. 5) Make iterator functions stop at nr_cpu_ids (a runtime constant), not NR_CPUS for time efficiency and for smaller dynamic allocations in future. 6) cpumask_copy() so we can allocate less than a full cpumask eventually (for alloc_cpumask_var), and so we can eliminate the 'struct cpumask' definition eventually. 7) work_on_cpu() helper for doing task on a CPU, rather than saving old cpumask for current thread and manipulating it. 8) smp_call_function_many() which is smp_call_function_mask() except taking a cpumask pointer. Note that this patch simply introduces the new functions and leaves the obsolescent ones in place. This is to simplify the transition patches.

2008-11-05sched: re-tune balancingIngo Molnar1-2/+2
Impact: improve wakeup affinity on NUMA systems, tweak SMP systems Given the fixes+tweaks to the wakeup-buddy code, re-tweak the domain balancing defaults on NUMA and SMP systems. Turn on SD_WAKE_AFFINE which was off on x86 NUMA - there's no reason why we would not want to have wakeup affinity across nodes as well. (we already do this in the standard NUMA template.) lat_ctx on a NUMA box is particularly happy about this change: before: | phoenix:~/l> ./lat_ctx -s 0 2 | "size=0k ovr=2.60 | 2 5.70 after: | phoenix:~/l> ./lat_ctx -s 0 2 | "size=0k ovr=2.65 | 2 2.07 a 2.75x speedup. pipe-test is similarly happy about it too: | phoenix:~/sched-tests> ./pipe-test | 18.26 usecs/loop. | 14.70 usecs/loop. | 14.38 usecs/loop. | 10.55 usecs/loop. # +WAKE_AFFINE on domain0+domain1 | 8.63 usecs/loop. | 8.59 usecs/loop. | 9.03 usecs/loop. | 8.94 usecs/loop. | 8.96 usecs/loop. | 8.63 usecs/loop. Also: - disable SD_BALANCE_NEWIDLE on NUMA and SMP domains (keep it for siblings) - enable SD_WAKE_BALANCE on SMP domains Sysbench+postgresql improves all around the board, quite significantly: .28-rc3-11474e2c .28-rc3-11474e2c-tune ------------------------------------------------- 1: 571 688 +17.08% 2: 1236 1206 -2.55% 4: 2381 2642 +9.89% 8: 4958 5164 +3.99% 16: 9580 9574 -0.07% 32: 7128 8118 +12.20% 64: 7342 8266 +11.18% 128: 7342 8064 +8.95% 256: 7519 7884 +4.62% 512: 7350 7731 +4.93% ------------------------------------------------- SUM: 55412 59341 +6.62% So it's a win both for the runup portion, the peak area and the tail.

2008-11-05[MTD] [NOR] Fix cfi_send_gen_cmd handling of x16 devices in x8 mode (v4)Eric W. Biederman1-3/+19
For "unlock" cycles to 16bit devices in 8bit compatibility mode we need to use the byte addresses 0xaaa and 0x555. These effectively match the word address 0x555 and 0x2aa, except the latter has its low bit set. Most chips don't care about the value of the 'A-1' pin in x8 mode, but some -- like the ST M29W320D -- do. So we need to be careful to set it where appropriate. cfi_send_gen_cmd is only ever passed addresses where the low byte is 0x00, 0x55 or 0xaa. Of those, only addresses ending 0xaa are affected by this patch, by masking in the extra low bit when the device is known to be in compatibility mode. [dwmw2: Do it only when (cmd_ofs & 0xff) == 0xaa] v4: Fix stupid typo in cfi_build_cmd_addr that failed to compile I'm writing this patch way to late at night. v3: Bring all of the work back into cfi_build_cmd_addr including calling of map_bankwidth(map) and cfi_interleave(cfi) So every caller doesn't need to. v2: Only modified the address if we our device_type is larger than our bus width.

2008-10-31resources: add io-mapping functions to dynamically map large device aperturesKeith Packard1-0/+118
Impact: add new generic io_map_*() APIs Graphics devices have large PCI apertures which would consume a significant fraction of a 32-bit address space if mapped during driver initialization. Using ioremap at runtime is impractical as it is too slow. This new set of interfaces uses atomic mappings on 32-bit processors and a large static mapping on 64-bit processors to provide reasonable 32-bit performance and optimal 64-bit performance. The current implementation sits atop the io_map_atomic fixmap-based mechanism for 32-bit processors.

The TBI is on the MDIO bus with the PHY (sort of) and is accessed via the gianfar's MDIO registers, using the functions gfar_local_mdio_read/write(), which don't do any locking. The previously attached PHY will start a work-queue on a timer, and probably an irq handler as well, which will talk to the PHY and thus use the MDIO bus. This uses phy_read/write(), which have locking, but not against the gfar_local_mdio versions. The result is that PHY code will try to use the MDIO bus at the same time as the SerDes setup code, corrupting the transfers. Setting up the SerDes before attaching to the PHY will insure that there is no race between the SerDes code and *our* PHY, but doesn't fix everything. Typically the PHYs for all gianfar devices are on the same MDIO bus, which is associated with the first gianfar device. This means that the first gianfar's SerDes code could corrupt the MDIO transfers for a different gianfar's PHY. The lock used by phy_read/write() is contained in the mii_bus structure, which is pointed to by the PHY. This is difficult to access from the gianfar drivers, as there is no link between a gianfar device and the mii_bus which shares the same MDIO registers. As far as the device layer and drivers are concerned they are two unrelated devices (which happen to share registers). Generally all gianfar devices' PHYs will be on the bus associated with the first gianfar. But this might not be the case, so simply locking the gianfar's PHY's mii bus might not lock the mii bus that the SerDes setup code is going to use. We solve this by having the code that creates the gianfar platform device look in the device tree for an mdio device that shares the gianfar's registers. If one is found the ID of its platform device is saved in the gianfar's platform data. A new function in the gianfar mii code, gfar_get_miibus(), can use the bus ID to search through the platform devices for a gianfar_mdio device with the right ID. The platform device's driver data is the mii_bus structure, which the SerDes setup code can use to lock the current bus.

2008-10-30nfsd: fix vm overcommit crashAlan Cox1-0/+6
Junjiro R. Okajima reported a problem where knfsd crashes if you are using it to export shmemfs objects and run strict overcommit. In this situation the current->mm based modifier to the overcommit goes through a NULL pointer. We could simply check for NULL and skip the modifier but we've caught other real bugs in the past from mm being NULL here - cases where we did need a valid mm set up (eg the exec bug about a year ago). To preserve the checks and get the logic we want shuffle the checking around and add a new helper to the vm_ security wrappers Also fix a current->mm reference in nommu that should use the passed mm [akpm@linux-foundation.org: coding-style fixes] [akpm@linux-foundation.org: fix build] Reported-by: Junjiro R.
