2008-12-10fix mapping_writably_mapped()Hugh Dickins1-6/+9
Lee Schermerhorn noticed yesterday that I broke the mapping_writably_mapped test in 2.6.7! Bad bad bug, good good find. The i_mmap_writable count must be incremented for VM_SHARED (just as i_writecount is for VM_DENYWRITE, but while holding the i_mmap_lock) when dup_mmap() copies the vma for fork: it has its own more optimal version of __vma_link_file(), and I missed this out. So the count was later going down to 0 (dangerous) when one end unmapped, then wrapping negative (inefficient) when the other end unmapped. The only impact on x86 would have been that setting a mandatory lock on a file which has at some time been opened O_RDWR and mapped MAP_SHARED (but not necessarily PROT_WRITE) across a fork, might fail with -EAGAIN when it should succeed, or succeed when it should fail. But those architectures which rely on flush_dcache_page() to flush userspace modifications back into the page before the kernel reads it, may in some cases have skipped the flush after such a fork - though any repetitive test will soon wrap the count negative, in which case it will flush_dcache_page() unnecessarily. Fix would be a two-liner, but mapping variable added, and comment moved.

2008-12-10lib/idr.c: Fix bug introduced by RCU fixManfred Spraul1-1/+7
The last patch to lib/idr.c caused a bug if idr_get_new_above() was called on an empty idr. Usually, nodes stay on the same layer. New layers are added to the top of the tree. The exception is idr_get_new_above() on an empty tree: In this case, the new root node is first added on layer 0, then moved upwards. p->layer was not updated. As usual: You shall never rely on the source code comments, they will only mislead you.

2008-12-10MN10300: Discard low-priority Tx interrupts when closing an on-chip serial portAkira Takeuchi1-0/+5
Discard low-prioriy Tx interrupts when closing an MN10300 on-chip serial port. The MN10300 on-chip serial port uses three interrupts to manage its serial ports: (1) A very high priority interrupt that drives virtual DMA for Rx. (2) A very high priority interrupt that drives virtual DMA for Tx. (3) A normal priority virtual interrupt that does the normal UART interrupt stuff and is shared between Rx and Tx. mn10300_serial_stop_tx() only disables the high priority Tx interrupt. It doesn't also disable the normal priority one because it is shared with Rx. However, the high priority interrupt may interrupt local_irq_disabled() sections, and so may have queued up a low priority virtual interrupt whilst the UART driver is asking for the Tx interrupt to be disabled. The result of this can be an oops when we try to process the interrupt in mn10300_serial_transmit_interrupt() as port->uart.info and port->uart.info->tty may have gone away. To deal with this, if either of those pointers is NULL, we make sure the high-priority Tx interrupt is disabled and discard the interrupt. The low priority interrupt is disabled by the mn10300_serial_pic irq_chip table.

The pktcdvd created class devices only export some sysfs files, but have no char dev_t registered in the driver. At class device creation time they copy the dev_t value of the block device to the char device, wich will register a new char device in the driver core and userspace, with a conflicting dev_t value. In many cases the class devices dev_t just points to a random USB device. This fixes the sysfs "duplicate entry" errors.

Miles Lane tailing /sys files hit a BUG which Pekka Enberg has tracked to my 966c8c12dc9e77f931e2281ba25d2f0244b06949 sprint_symbol(): use less stack exposing a bug in slub's list_locations() - kallsyms_lookup() writes a 0 to namebuf[KSYM_NAME_LEN-1], but that was beyond the end of page provided. The 100 slop which list_locations() allows at end of page looks roughly enough for all the other stuff it might print after the symbol before it checks again: break out KSYM_SYMBOL_LEN earlier than before.

2008-12-10inotify: fix IN_ONESHOT unmount event watcherDmitri Monakhov1-0/+2
On umount two event will be dispatched to watcher: 1: inotify_dev_queue_event(.., IN_UNMOUNT,..) 2: remove_watch(watch, dev) ->inotify_dev_queue_event(.., IN_IGNORED, ..) But if watcher has IN_ONESHOT bit set then the watcher will be released inside first event. Which result in accessing invalid object later. IMHO it is not pure regression. This bug wasn't triggered while initial inotify interface testing phase because of another bug in IN_ONESHOT handling logic :) commit ac74c00e499ed276a965e5b5600667d5dc04a84a Author: Ulisses Furquim <ulissesf@gmail.com> Date: Fri Feb 8 04:18:16 2008 -0800 inotify: fix check for one-shot watches before destroying them As the IN_ONESHOT bit is never set when an event is sent we must check it in the watch's mask and not in the event's mask.

2008-12-10mm: no get_user/put_user while holding mmap_sem in do_pages_stat?Brice Goglin1-13/+46
Since commit 2f007e74bb85b9fc4eab28524052161703300f1a, do_pages_stat() gets the page address from user-space and puts the corresponding status back while holding the mmap_sem for read. There is no need to hold mmap_sem there while some page-faults may occur. This patch adds a temporary address and status buffer so as to only hold mmap_sem while working on these kernel buffers. This is implemented by extracting do_pages_stat_array() out of do_pages_stat().

2008-12-10fbcon: fix workqueue shutdownGeoff Levand1-0/+6
Add a call to cancel_work_sync() in fbcon_exit() to cancel any pending work in the fbcon workqueue. The current implementation of fbcon_exit() sets the fbcon workqueue function info->queue.func to NULL, but does not assure that there is no work pending when it does so. On occasion, depending on system timing, there will still be pending work in the queue when fbcon_exit() is called. This results in a null pointer deference when run_workqueue() tries to call the queue's work function.

Currently, lru_add_drain_all() has two version. (1) use schedule_on_each_cpu() (2) don't use schedule_on_each_cpu() Gerald Schaefer reported it doesn't work well on SMP (not NUMA) S390 machine. offline_pages() calls lru_add_drain_all() followed by drain_all_pages(). While drain_all_pages() works on each cpu, lru_add_drain_all() only runs on the current cpu for architectures w/o CONFIG_NUMA. This let us run into the BUG_ON(!PageBuddy(page)) in __offline_isolated_pages() during memory hotplug stress test on s390. The page in question was still on the pcp list, because of a race with lru_add_drain_all() and drain_all_pages() on different cpus. Actually, Almost machine has CONFIG_UNEVICTABLE_LRU=y. Then almost machine use (1) version lru_add_drain_all although the machine is UP. Then this ifdef is not valueable. simple removing is better.

2008-12-10revert "percpu counter: clean up percpu_counter_sum_and_set()"Andrew Morton3-8/+16
Revert commit 1f7c14c62ce63805f9574664a6c6de3633d4a354 Author: Mingming Cao <cmm@us.ibm.com> Date: Thu Oct 9 12:50:59 2008 -0400 percpu counter: clean up percpu_counter_sum_and_set() Before this patch we had the following: percpu_counter_sum(): return the percpu_counter's value percpu_counter_sum_and_set(): return the percpu_counter's value, copying that value into the central value and zeroing the per-cpu counters before returning. After this patch, percpu_counter_sum_and_set() has gone, and percpu_counter_sum() gets the old percpu_counter_sum_and_set() functionality. Problem is, as Eric points out, the old percpu_counter_sum_and_set() functionality was racy and wrong. It zeroes out counters on "other" cpus, without holding any locks which will prevent races agaist updates from those other CPUS. This patch reverts 1f7c14c62ce63805f9574664a6c6de3633d4a354. This means that percpu_counter_sum_and_set() still has the race, but percpu_counter_sum() does not. Note that this is not a simple revert - ext4 has since started using percpu_counter_sum() for its dirty_blocks counter as well. Note that this revert patch changes percpu_counter_sum() semantics. Before the patch, a call to percpu_counter_sum() will bring the counter's central counter mostly up-to-date, so a following percpu_counter_read() will return a close value. After this patch, a call to percpu_counter_sum() will leave the counter's central accumulator unaltered, so a subsequent call to percpu_counter_read() can now return a significantly inaccurate result. If there is any code in the tree which was introduced after e8ced39d5e8911c662d4d69a342b9d053eaaac4e was merged, and which depends upon the new percpu_counter_sum() semantics, that code will break.

2008-12-10crypto: api - Disallow cryptomgr as a module if algorithms are built-inHerbert Xu2-13/+41
If we have at least one algorithm built-in then it no longer makes sense to have the testing framework, and hence cryptomgr to be a module. It should be either on or off, i.e., built-in or disabled. This just happens to stop a potential runaway modprobe loop that seems to trigger on at least one distro. With fixes from Evgeniy Polyakov. Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>
2008-12-10firewire: fw-ohci: fix IOMMU resource exhaustionStefan Richter3-4/+12
There is a DMA map/ unmap imbalance whenever a block write request packet is sent and then dequeued with ohci_cancel_packet. The latter may happen frequently if the AR resp tasklet is executed before the AT req tasklet for the same transaction. Add the missing dma_unmap_single.

2008-12-09tracehook: exec double-reporting fixRoland McGrath1-1/+9
The patch 6341c39 "tracehook: exec" introduced a small regression in 2.6.27 regarding binfmt_misc exec event reporting. Since the reporting is now done in the common search_binary_handler() function, an exec of a misc binary will result in two (or possibly multiple) exec events being reported, instead of just a single one, because the misc handler contains a recursive call to search_binary_handler. To add to the confusion, if PTRACE_O_TRACEEXEC is not active, the multiple SIGTRAP signals will in fact cause only a single ptrace intercept, as the signals are not queued. However, if PTRACE_O_TRACEEXEC is on, the debugger will actually see multiple ptrace intercepts (PTRACE_EVENT_EXEC). The test program included below demonstrates the problem. This change fixes the bug by calling tracehook_report_exec() only in the outermost search_binary_handler() call (bprm->recursion_depth == 0). The additional change to restore bprm->recursion_depth after each binfmt load_binary call is actually superfluous for this bug, since we test the value saved on entry to search_binary_handler(). But it keeps the use of of the depth count to its most obvious expected meaning. Depending on what binfmt handlers do in certain cases, there could have been false-positive tests for recursion limits before this change. /* Test program using PTRACE_O_TRACEEXEC. This forks and exec's the first argument with the rest of the arguments, while ptrace'ing. It expects to see one PTRACE_EVENT_EXEC stop and then a successful exit, with no other signals or events in between. Test for kernel doing two PTRACE_EVENT_EXEC stops for a binfmt_misc exec: $ gcc -g traceexec.c -o traceexec $ sudo sh -c 'echo :test:M::foobar::/bin/cat: > /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc/register' $ echo 'foobar test' > ./foobar $ chmod +x ./foobar $ ./traceexec ./foobar; echo $? ==> good <== foobar test 0 $ ==> bad <== foobar test unexpected status 0x4057f != 0 3 $ */ #include <stdio.h> #include <sys/types.h> #include <sys/wait.h> #include <sys/ptrace.h> #include <unistd.h> #include <signal.h> #include <stdlib.h> static void wait_for (pid_t child, int expect) { int status; pid_t p = wait (&status); if (p != child) { perror ("wait"); exit (2); } if (status != expect) { fprintf (stderr, "unexpected status %#x != %#x\n", status, expect); exit (3); } } int main (int argc, char **argv) { pid_t child = fork (); if (child < 0) { perror ("fork"); return 127; } else if (child == 0) { ptrace (PTRACE_TRACEME); raise (SIGUSR1); execv (argv[1], &argv[1]); perror ("execve"); _exit (127); } wait_for (child, W_STOPCODE (SIGUSR1)); if (ptrace (PTRACE_SETOPTIONS, child, 0L, (void *) (long) PTRACE_O_TRACEEXEC) != 0) { perror ("PTRACE_SETOPTIONS"); return 4; } if (ptrace (PTRACE_CONT, child, 0L, 0L) != 0) { perror ("PTRACE_CONT"); return 5; } wait_for (child, W_STOPCODE (SIGTRAP | (PTRACE_EVENT_EXEC << 8))); if (ptrace (PTRACE_CONT, child, 0L, 0L) != 0) { perror ("PTRACE_CONT"); return 6; } wait_for (child, W_EXITCODE (0, 0)); return 0; } Reported-by: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@arndb.de> CC: Ulrich Weigand <ulrich.weigand@de.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Roland McGrath <roland@redhat.com>

2008-12-09[IA64] SN: prevent IRQ retargetting in request_irq()John Keller1-1/+8
With the introduction of the generic affinity autoselector, irq_select_affinity(), IRQs are now being retargetted, using a default mask, via the request_irq() path. This results in all IRQs targetted at CPU 0. SN Altix assigns affinity in the SN PROM, and does not expect that to be changed as part of request_irq(). Set the IRQ_AFFINITY_SET flag to prevent request_irq() from resetting affinity. Signed-off-by: John Keller <jpk@sgi.com> Signed-off-by: Tony Luck <tony.luck@intel.com>
2008-12-09ieee1394: node manager causes up to ~3.25s delay in freezing tasksNigel Cunningham1-0/+2
The firewire nodemanager function "nodemgr_host_thread" contains a loop that calls try_to_freeze near the top of the loop, but then delays for up to 3.25 seconds (plus time to do work) before getting back to the top of the loop. When starting a cycle post-boot, this doesn't seem to bite, but it is causing a noticeable delay at boot time, when freezing processes prior to starting to read the image. The following patch adds invocation of try_to_freeze to the subloops that are used in the body of this function. With these additions, the time to freeze when starting to resume at boot time is virtually zero. I'm no expert on firewire, and so don't know that we shouldn't check the return value and jump back to the top of the loop or such like after being frozen, but I submit it for your consideration. Signed-off-by: Nigel Cunningham <nigel@tuxonice.net> The delay until nodemgr freezes was up to 0.25s (plus time for node probes) in Linux 2.6.27 and older and up to 3.25s (plus ~) since Linux 2.6.28-rc1, hence much more noticeable. try_to_freeze() without any jump is correct. The surrounding code in the respective loops will catch whether another bus reset happens during the freeze and handle it. Signed-off-by: Stefan Richter <stefanr@s5r6.in-berlin.de>
