2009-04-28fuse: don't use inode in fuse_file_pollMiklos Szeredi1-3/+2
Use ff->fc and ff->nodeid instead of file->f_dentry->d_inode in the fuse_file_poll() implementation. This prepares this function for use by CUSE, where the inode is not owned by a fuse filesystem. Signed-off-by: Miklos Szeredi <mszeredi@suse.cz>
2009-04-28fuse: don't use inode in fuse_do_ioctl() helperMiklos Szeredi1-14/+21

2009-04-02fuse: allow private mappings of "direct_io" filesMiklos Szeredi1-1/+11
Allow MAP_PRIVATE mmaps of "direct_io" files. This is necessary for execute support. MAP_SHARED mappings require some sort of coherency between the underlying file and the mapping. With "direct_io" it is difficult to provide this, so for the moment just disallow shared (read-write and read-only) mappings altogether. Signed-off-by: Miklos Szeredi <mszeredi@suse.cz>
2009-04-02fuse: allow kernel to access "direct_io" filesMiklos Szeredi1-12/+30
Allow the kernel read and write on "direct_io" files. This is necessary for nfs export and execute support. The implementation is simple: if an access from the kernel is detected, don't perform get_user_pages(), just use the kernel address provided by the requester to copy from/to the userspace filesystem.

2009-04-01mm: page_mkwrite change prototype to match faultNick Piggin1-1/+2
Change the page_mkwrite prototype to take a struct vm_fault, and return VM_FAULT_xxx flags. There should be no functional change. This makes it possible to return much more detailed error information to the VM (and also can provide more information eg. virtual_address to the driver, which might be important in some special cases). This is required for a subsequent fix. And will also make it easier to merge page_mkwrite() with fault() in future.

2009-01-04fs: symlink write_begin allocation context fixNick Piggin1-2/+2
With the write_begin/write_end aops, page_symlink was broken because it could no longer pass a GFP_NOFS type mask into the point where the allocations happened. They are done in write_begin, which would always assume that the filesystem can be entered from reclaim. This bug could cause filesystem deadlocks. The funny thing with having a gfp_t mask there is that it doesn't really allow the caller to arbitrarily tinker with the context in which it can be called. It couldn't ever be GFP_ATOMIC, for example, because it needs to take the page lock. The only thing any callers care about is __GFP_FS anyway, so turn that into a single flag. Add a new flag for write_begin, AOP_FLAG_NOFS. Filesystems can now act on this flag in their write_begin function. Change __grab_cache_page to accept a nofs argument as well, to honour that flag (while we're there, change the name to grab_cache_page_write_begin which is more instructive and does away with random leading underscores). This is really a more flexible way to go in the end anyway -- if a filesystem happens to want any extra allocations aside from the pagecache ones in ints write_begin function, it may now use GFP_KERNEL (rather than GFP_NOFS) for common case allocations (eg. ocfs2_alloc_write_ctxt, for a random example).

Implement poll support. Polled files are indexed using kh in a RB tree rooted at fuse_conn->polled_files. Client should send FUSE_NOTIFY_POLL notification once after processing FUSE_POLL which has FUSE_POLL_SCHEDULE_NOTIFY set. Sending notification unconditionally after the latest poll or everytime file content might have changed is inefficient but won't cause malfunction. fuse_file_poll() can sleep and requires patches from the following thread which allows f_op->poll() to sleep. http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel/726176 Signed-off-by: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org> Signed-off-by: Miklos Szeredi <mszeredi@suse.cz>

2008-11-26fuse: implement ioctl supportTejun Heo1-0/+280
Generic ioctl support is tricky to implement because only the ioctl implementation itself knows which memory regions need to be read and/or written. To support this, fuse client can request retry of ioctl specifying memory regions to read and write. Deep copying (nested pointers) can be implemented by retrying multiple times resolving one depth of dereference at a time. For security and cleanliness considerations, ioctl implementation has restricted mode where the kernel determines data transfer directions and sizes using the _IOC_*() macros on the ioctl command. In this mode, retry is not allowed. For all FUSE servers, restricted mode is enforced. Unrestricted ioctl will be used by CUSE.

2008-05-13fuse: add flag to turn on big writesMiklos Szeredi1-0/+2
Prior to 2.6.26 fuse only supported single page write requests. In theory all fuse filesystem should be able support bigger than 4k writes, as there's nothing in the API to prevent it. Unfortunately there's a known case in NTFS-3G where big writes cause filesystem corruption. There could also be other filesystems, where the lack of testing with big write requests would result in bugs. To prevent such problems on a kernel upgrade, disable big writes by default, but let filesystems set a flag to turn it on.

2008-04-30fuse: support writable mmapMiklos Szeredi1-16/+305
Quoting Linus (3 years ago, FUSE inclusion discussions): "User-space filesystems are hard to get right. I'd claim that they are almost impossible, unless you limit them somehow (shared writable mappings are the nastiest part - if you don't have those, you can reasonably limit your problems by limiting the number of dirty pages you accept through normal "write()" calls)." Instead of attempting the impossible, I've just waited for the dirty page accounting infrastructure to materialize (thanks to Peter Zijlstra and others). This nicely solved the biggest problem: limiting the number of pages used for write caching. Some small details remained, however, which this largish patch attempts to address. It provides a page writeback implementation for fuse, which is completely safe against VM related deadlocks. Performance may not be very good for certain usage patterns, but generally it should be acceptable. It has been tested extensively with fsx-linux and bash-shared-mapping. Fuse page writeback design -------------------------- fuse_writepage() allocates a new temporary page with GFP_NOFS|__GFP_HIGHMEM. It copies the contents of the original page, and queues a WRITE request to the userspace filesystem using this temp page. The writeback is finished instantly from the MM's point of view: the page is removed from the radix trees, and the PageDirty and PageWriteback flags are cleared. For the duration of the actual write, the NR_WRITEBACK_TEMP counter is incremented. The per-bdi writeback count is not decremented until the actual write completes. On dirtying the page, fuse waits for a previous write to finish before proceeding. This makes sure, there can only be one temporary page used at a time for one cached page. This approach is wasteful in both memory and CPU bandwidth, so why is this complication needed? The basic problem is that there can be no guarantee about the time in which the userspace filesystem will complete a write. It may be buggy or even malicious, and fail to complete WRITE requests. We don't want unrelated parts of the system to grind to a halt in such cases. Also a filesystem may need additional resources (particularly memory) to complete a WRITE request. There's a great danger of a deadlock if that allocation may wait for the writepage to finish. Currently there are several cases where the kernel can block on page writeback: - allocation order is larger than PAGE_ALLOC_COSTLY_ORDER - page migration - throttle_vm_writeout (through NR_WRITEBACK) - sync(2) Of course in some cases (fsync, msync) we explicitly want to allow blocking. So for these cases new code has to be added to fuse, since the VM is not tracking writeback pages for us any more. As an extra safetly measure, the maximum dirty ratio allocated to a single fuse filesystem is set to 1% by default. This way one (or several) buggy or malicious fuse filesystems cannot slow down the rest of the system by hogging dirty memory. With appropriate privileges, this limit can be raised through '/sys/class/bdi/<bdi>/max_ratio'.

2007-10-18fuse: fix race between getattr and writeMiklos Szeredi1-0/+2
Getattr and lookup operations can be running in parallel to attribute changing operations, such as write and setattr. This means, that if for example getattr was slower than a write, the cached size attribute could be set to a stale value. To prevent this race, introduce a per-filesystem attribute version counter. This counter is incremented whenever cached attributes are modified, and the incremented value stored in the inode. Before storing new attributes in the cache, getattr and lookup check, using the version number, whether the attributes have been modified during the request's lifetime. If so, the returned attributes are not cached, because they might be stale. Thanks to Jakub Bogusz for the bug report and test program.
