2010-05-25driver core: add devname module aliases to allow module on-demand auto-loadingKay Sievers1-0/+1
This adds: alias: devname:<name> to some common kernel modules, which will allow the on-demand loading of the kernel module when the device node is accessed. Ideally all these modules would be compiled-in, but distros seems too much in love with their modularization that we need to cover the common cases with this new facility. It will allow us to remove a bunch of pretty useless init scripts and modprobes from init scripts. The static device node aliases will be carried in the module itself. The program depmod will extract this information to a file in the module directory: $ cat /lib/modules/2.6.34-00650-g537b60d-dirty/modules.devname # Device nodes to trigger on-demand module loading. microcode cpu/microcode c10:184 fuse fuse c10:229 ppp_generic ppp c108:0 tun net/tun c10:200 dm_mod mapper/control c10:235 Udev will pick up the depmod created file on startup and create all the static device nodes which the kernel modules specify, so that these modules get automatically loaded when the device node is accessed: $ /sbin/udevd --debug ... static_dev_create_from_modules: mknod '/dev/cpu/microcode' c10:184 static_dev_create_from_modules: mknod '/dev/fuse' c10:229 static_dev_create_from_modules: mknod '/dev/ppp' c108:0 static_dev_create_from_modules: mknod '/dev/net/tun' c10:200 static_dev_create_from_modules: mknod '/dev/mapper/control' c10:235 udev_rules_apply_static_dev_perms: chmod '/dev/net/tun' 0666 udev_rules_apply_static_dev_perms: chmod '/dev/fuse' 0666 A few device nodes are switched to statically allocated numbers, to allow the static nodes to work. This might also useful for systems which still run a plain static /dev, which is completely unsafe to use with any dynamic minor numbers. Note: The devname aliases must be limited to the *common* and *single*instance* device nodes, like the misc devices, and never be used for conceptually limited systems like the loop devices, which should rather get fixed properly and get a control node for losetup to talk to, instead of creating a random number of device nodes in advance, regardless if they are ever used. This facility is to hide the mess distros are creating with too modualized kernels, and just to hide that these modules are not compiled-in, and not to paper-over broken concepts.

2010-05-25fuse: support splice() reading from fuse deviceMiklos Szeredi1-41/+187
Allow userspace filesystem implementation to use splice() to read from the fuse device. The userspace filesystem can now transfer data coming from a WRITE request to an arbitrary file descriptor (regular file, block device or socket) without having to go through a userspace buffer. The semantics of using splice() to read messages are: 1) with a single splice() call move the whole message from the fuse device to a temporary pipe 2) read the header from the pipe and determine the message type 3a) if message is a WRITE then splice data from pipe to destination 3b) else read rest of message to userspace buffer Signed-off-by: Miklos Szeredi <mszeredi@suse.cz>
2010-05-25fuse: allow splice to move pagesMiklos Szeredi3-15/+167
When splicing buffers to the fuse device with SPLICE_F_MOVE, try to move pages from the pipe buffer into the page cache. This allows populating the fuse filesystem's cache without ever touching the page contents, i.e. zero copy read capability. The following steps are performed when trying to move a page into the page cache: - buf->ops->confirm() to make sure the new page is uptodate - buf->ops->steal() to try to remove the new page from it's previous place - remove_from_page_cache() on the old page - add_to_page_cache_locked() on the new page If any of the above steps fail (non fatally) then the code falls back to copying the page. In particular ->steal() will fail if there are external references (other than the page cache and the pipe buffer) to the page. Also since the remove_from_page_cache() + add_to_page_cache_locked() are non-atomic it is possible that the page cache is repopulated in between the two and add_to_page_cache_locked() will fail. This could be fixed by creating a new atomic replace_page_cache_page() function. fuse_readpages_end() needed to be reworked so it works even if page->mapping is NULL for some or all pages which can happen if the add_to_page_cache_locked() failed. A number of sanity checks were added to make sure the stolen pages don't have weird flags set, etc... These could be moved into generic splice/steal code.

2010-05-25fuse: support splice() writing to fuse deviceMiklos Szeredi1-31/+144
Allow userspace filesystem implementation to use splice() to write to the fuse device. The semantics of using splice() are: 1) buffer the message header and data in a temporary pipe 2) with a *single* splice() call move the message from the temporary pipe to the fuse device The READ reply message has the most interesting use for this, since now the data from an arbitrary file descriptor (which could be a regular file, a block device or a socket) can be tranferred into the fuse device without having to go through a userspace buffer. It will also allow zero copy moving of pages. One caveat is that the protocol on the fuse device requires the length of the whole message to be written into the header. But the length of the data transferred into the temporary pipe may not be known in advance. The current library implementation works around this by using vmplice to write the header and modifying the header after splicing the data into the pipe (error handling omitted): struct fuse_out_header out; iov.iov_base = &out; iov.iov_len = sizeof(struct fuse_out_header); vmsplice(pip[1], &iov, 1, 0); len = splice(input_fd, input_offset, pip[1], NULL, len, 0); /* retrospectively modify the header: */ out.len = len + sizeof(struct fuse_out_header); splice(pip[0], NULL, fuse_chan_fd(req->ch), NULL, out.len, flags); This works since vmsplice only saves a pointer to the data, it does not copy the data itself. Since pipes are currently limited to 16 pages and messages need to be spliced atomically, the length of the data is limited to 15 pages (or 60kB for 4k pages).

2010-05-25fuse: get page reference for readpagesMiklos Szeredi1-0/+2
Acquire a page ref on pages in ->readpages() and release them when the read has finished. Not acquiring a reference didn't seem to cause any trouble since the page is locked and will not be kicked out of the page cache during the read. However the following patches will want to remove the page from the cache so a separate ref is needed. Making the reference in req->pages explicit also makes the code easier to understand.

2010-03-30include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking ↵Tejun Heo1-0/+1
implicit slab.h inclusion from percpu.h percpu.h is included by sched.h and module.h and thus ends up being included when building most .c files. percpu.h includes slab.h which in turn includes gfp.h making everything defined by the two files universally available and complicating inclusion dependencies. percpu.h -> slab.h dependency is about to be removed. Prepare for this change by updating users of gfp and slab facilities include those headers directly instead of assuming availability. As this conversion needs to touch large number of source files, the following script is used as the basis of conversion. http://userweb.kernel.org/~tj/misc/slabh-sweep.py The script does the followings. * Scan files for gfp and slab usages and update includes such that only the necessary includes are there. ie. if only gfp is used, gfp.h, if slab is used, slab.h. * When the script inserts a new include, it looks at the include blocks and try to put the new include such that its order conforms to its surrounding. It's put in the include block which contains core kernel includes, in the same order that the rest are ordered - alphabetical, Christmas tree, rev-Xmas-tree or at the end if there doesn't seem to be any matching order. * If the script can't find a place to put a new include (mostly because the file doesn't have fitting include block), it prints out an error message indicating which .h file needs to be added to the file. The conversion was done in the following steps. 1. The initial automatic conversion of all .c files updated slightly over 4000 files, deleting around 700 includes and adding ~480 gfp.h and ~3000 slab.h inclusions. The script emitted errors for ~400 files. 2. Each error was manually checked. Some didn't need the inclusion, some needed manual addition while adding it to implementation .h or embedding .c file was more appropriate for others. This step added inclusions to around 150 files. 3. The script was run again and the output was compared to the edits from #2 to make sure no file was left behind. 4. Several build tests were done and a couple of problems were fixed. e.g. lib/decompress_*.c used malloc/free() wrappers around slab APIs requiring slab.h to be added manually. 5. The script was run on all .h files but without automatically editing them as sprinkling gfp.h and slab.h inclusions around .h files could easily lead to inclusion dependency hell. Most gfp.h inclusion directives were ignored as stuff from gfp.h was usually wildly available and often used in preprocessor macros. Each slab.h inclusion directive was examined and added manually as necessary. 6. percpu.h was updated not to include slab.h. 7. Build test were done on the following configurations and failures were fixed. CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL was turned off for all tests (as my distributed build env didn't work with gcov compiles) and a few more options had to be turned off depending on archs to make things build (like ipr on powerpc/64 which failed due to missing writeq). * x86 and x86_64 UP and SMP allmodconfig and a custom test config. * powerpc and powerpc64 SMP allmodconfig * sparc and sparc64 SMP allmodconfig * ia64 SMP allmodconfig * s390 SMP allmodconfig * alpha SMP allmodconfig * um on x86_64 SMP allmodconfig 8. percpu.h modifications were reverted so that it could be applied as a separate patch and serve as bisection point. Given the fact that I had only a couple of failures from tests on step 6, I'm fairly confident about the coverage of this conversion patch. If there is a breakage, it's likely to be something in one of the arch headers which should be easily discoverable easily on most builds of the specific arch.

2010-02-02mm: flush dcache before writing into page to avoid aliasanfei zhou1-0/+3
The cache alias problem will happen if the changes of user shared mapping is not flushed before copying, then user and kernel mapping may be mapped into two different cache line, it is impossible to guarantee the coherence after iov_iter_copy_from_user_atomic. So the right steps should be: flush_dcache_page(page); kmap_atomic(page); write to page; kunmap_atomic(page); flush_dcache_page(page); More precisely, we might create two new APIs flush_dcache_user_page and flush_dcache_kern_page to replace the two flush_dcache_page accordingly. Here is a snippet tested on omap2430 with VIPT cache, and I think it is not ARM-specific: int val = 0x11111111; fd = open("abc", O_RDWR); addr = mmap(NULL, 4096, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_SHARED, fd, 0); *(addr+0) = 0x44444444; tmp = *(addr+0); *(addr+1) = 0x77777777; write(fd, &val, sizeof(int)); close(fd); The results are not always 0x11111111 0x77777777 at the beginning as expected. Sometimes we see 0x44444444 0x77777777.

The comment in fuse_open about O_DIRECT: "VFS checks this, but only _after_ ->open()" also holds for fuse_create, however, the same kind of check was missing there. As an impact of this bug, open(newfile, O_RDWR|O_CREAT|O_DIRECT) fails, but a stub newfile will remain if the fuse server handled the implied FUSE_CREATE request appropriately. Other impact: in the above situation ima_file_free() will complain to open/free imbalance if CONFIG_IMA is set.

2009-06-09CUSE: implement CUSE - Character device in UserspaceTejun Heo2-0/+611
CUSE enables implementing character devices in userspace. With recent additions of ioctl and poll support, FUSE already has most of what's necessary to implement character devices. All CUSE has to do is bonding all those components - FUSE, chardev and the driver model - nicely. When client opens /dev/cuse, kernel starts conversation with CUSE_INIT. The client tells CUSE which device it wants to create. As the previous patch made fuse_file usable without associated fuse_inode, CUSE doesn't create super block or inodes. It attaches fuse_file to cdev file->private_data during open and set ff->fi to NULL. The rest of the operation is almost identical to FUSE direct IO case. Each CUSE device has a corresponding directory /sys/class/cuse/DEVNAME (which is symlink to /sys/devices/virtual/class/DEVNAME if SYSFS_DEPRECATED is turned off) which hosts "waiting" and "abort" among other things. Those two files have the same meaning as the FUSE control files. The only notable lacking feature compared to in-kernel implementation is mmap support.

2009-04-28fuse: export symbols to be used by CUSETejun Heo4-9/+39
Export the following symbols for CUSE. fuse_conn_put() fuse_conn_get() fuse_conn_kill() fuse_send_init() fuse_do_open() fuse_sync_release() fuse_direct_io() fuse_do_ioctl() fuse_file_poll() fuse_request_alloc() fuse_get_req() fuse_put_request() fuse_request_send() fuse_abort_conn() fuse_dev_release() fuse_dev_operations Signed-off-by: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org> Signed-off-by: Miklos Szeredi <mszeredi@suse.cz>
2009-04-28fuse: update fuse_conn_init() and separate out fuse_conn_kill()Tejun Heo3-53/+72
Update fuse_conn_init() such that it doesn't take @sb and move bdi registration into a separate function. Also separate out fuse_conn_kill() from fuse_put_super(). These will be used to implement cuse. Signed-off-by: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org> Signed-off-by: Miklos Szeredi <mszeredi@suse.cz>
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
Create a helper for sending an IOCTL request that doesn't use a struct inode. 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_sync_release()Miklos Szeredi3-39/+36
Make fuse_sync_release() a generic helper function that doesn't need a struct inode pointer. This makes it suitable for use by CUSE. Change return value of fuse_release_common() from int to void. Signed-off-by: Miklos Szeredi <mszeredi@suse.cz>
2009-04-28fuse: create fuse_do_open() helper for CUSEMiklos Szeredi3-27/+42
Create a helper for sending an OPEN request that doesn't need a struct inode pointer. Signed-off-by: Miklos Szeredi <mszeredi@suse.cz>
2009-04-28fuse: clean up args in fuse_finish_open() and fuse_release_fill()Miklos Szeredi3-23/+30
Move setting ff->fh, ff->nodeid and file->private_data outside fuse_finish_open(). Add ->open_flags member to struct fuse_file. This simplifies the argument passing to fuse_finish_open() and fuse_release_fill(), and paves the way for creating an open helper that doesn't need an inode pointer.

2009-04-28fuse: don't use inode in helpers called by fuse_direct_io()Miklos Szeredi3-34/+32
Use ff->fc and ff->nodeid instead of passing down the inode. 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: add members to struct fuse_fileMiklos Szeredi2-2/+10
Add new members ->fc and ->nodeid to struct fuse_file. This will aid in converting functions for use by CUSE, where the inode is not owned by a fuse filesystem. Signed-off-by: Miklos Szeredi <mszeredi@suse.cz>
