2014-10-14lib / string_helpers: move documentation to c-fileAndy Shevchenko1-0/+38
The introduced function string_escape_mem() is a kind of opposite to string_unescape. We have several users of such functionality each of them created custom implementation. The series contains clean up of test suite, adding new call, and switching few users to use it via %*pE specifier. Test suite covers all of existing and most of potential use cases. This patch (of 11): The documentation of API belongs to c-file. This patch moves it accordingly. There is no functional change.

2014-10-14lib: string: Make all calls to strnicmp into calls to strncasecmpRasmus Villemoes1-0/+1
The previous patch made strnicmp into a wrapper for strncasecmp. This patch makes all in-tree users of strnicmp call strncasecmp directly, while still making sure that the strnicmp symbol can be used by out-of-tree modules. It should be considered a temporary hack until all in-tree callers have been converted.

2014-10-14lib/string.c: remove duplicated functionRasmus Villemoes1-17/+10
lib/string.c contains two functions, strnicmp and strncasecmp, which do roughly the same thing, namely compare two strings case-insensitively up to a given bound. They have slightly different implementations, but the only important difference is that strncasecmp doesn't handle len==0 appropriately; it effectively becomes strcasecmp in that case. strnicmp correctly says that two strings are always equal in their first 0 characters. strncasecmp is the POSIX name for this functionality. So rename the non-broken function to the standard name. To minimize the impact on the rest of the kernel (and since both are exported to modules), make strnicmp a wrapper for strncasecmp.

2014-10-14lib: rename TEST_MODULE to TEST_LKMValentin Rothberg2-2/+2
The "_MODULE" suffix is reserved for tristates compiled as loadable kernel modules (LKM). The "TEST_MODULE" feature thereby violates this convention. The feature is used to compile the lib/test_module.c kernel module. Sadly this convention is not made explicit, but the Kconfig code documents it. The following code (./scripts/kconfig/confdata.c) is used to generate the autoconf.h header file during the build process. When a feature is selected as a kernel module ('m'), it is suffixed with "_MODULE" to indicate it. switch (*value) { case 'n': break; case 'm': suffix = "_MODULE"; /* fall through */ This causes problems for static code analysis, which assumes a consistent use of the "_MODULE" suffix. This patch renames the feature and its reference in a Makefile to "TEST_LKM", which still expresses the test of a LKM.

The prio_heap code is unused since commit 889ed9ceaa97 ("cgroup: remove css_scan_tasks()"). It should be compiled out to shrink the binary kernel size which can be done via introducing CONFIG_PRIO_HEAD or by removing the code. We can simply recover the code from git when needed, so it would be better to remove it IMO. Signed-off-by: Lai Jiangshan <laijs@cn.fujitsu.com> Acked-by: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org> Cc: "David S.

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tj/percpu Pull percpu updates from Tejun Heo: "A lot of activities on percpu front. Notable changes are... - percpu allocator now can take @gfp. If @gfp doesn't contain GFP_KERNEL, it tries to allocate from what's already available to the allocator and a work item tries to keep the reserve around certain level so that these atomic allocations usually succeed. This will replace the ad-hoc percpu memory pool used by blk-throttle and also be used by the planned blkcg support for writeback IOs. Please note that I noticed a bug in how @gfp is interpreted while preparing this pull request and applied the fix 6ae833c7fe0c ("percpu: fix how @gfp is interpreted by the percpu allocator") just now. - percpu_ref now uses longs for percpu and global counters instead of ints. It leads to more sparse packing of the percpu counters on 64bit machines but the overhead should be negligible and this allows using percpu_ref for refcnting pages and in-memory objects directly. - The switching between percpu and single counter modes of a percpu_ref is made independent of putting the base ref and a percpu_ref can now optionally be initialized in single or killed mode. This allows avoiding percpu shutdown latency for cases where the refcounted objects may be synchronously created and destroyed in rapid succession with only a fraction of them reaching fully operational status (SCSI probing does this when combined with blk-mq support). It's also planned to be used to implement forced single mode to detect underflow more timely for debugging. There's a separate branch percpu/for-3.18-consistent-ops which cleans up the duplicate percpu accessors. That branch causes a number of conflicts with s390 and other trees.

Pull networking updates from David Miller: "Most notable changes in here: 1) By far the biggest accomplishment, thanks to a large range of contributors, is the addition of multi-send for transmit. This is the result of discussions back in Chicago, and the hard work of several individuals. Now, when the ->ndo_start_xmit() method of a driver sees skb->xmit_more as true, it can choose to defer the doorbell telling the driver to start processing the new TX queue entires. skb->xmit_more means that the generic networking is guaranteed to call the driver immediately with another SKB to send. There is logic added to the qdisc layer to dequeue multiple packets at a time, and the handling mis-predicted offloads in software is now done with no locks held. Finally, pktgen is extended to have a "burst" parameter that can be used to test a multi-send implementation. Several drivers have xmit_more support: i40e, igb, ixgbe, mlx4, virtio_net Adding support is almost trivial, so export more drivers to support this optimization soon. I want to thank, in no particular or implied order, Jesper Dangaard Brouer, Eric Dumazet, Alexander Duyck, Tom Herbert, Jamal Hadi Salim, John Fastabend, Florian Westphal, Daniel Borkmann, David Tat, Hannes Frederic Sowa, and Rusty Russell. 2) PTP and timestamping support in bnx2x, from Michal Kalderon. 3) Allow adjusting the rx_copybreak threshold for a driver via ethtool, and add rx_copybreak support to enic driver. From Govindarajulu Varadarajan. 4) Significant enhancements to the generic PHY layer and the bcm7xxx driver in particular (EEE support, auto power down, etc.) from Florian Fainelli. 5) Allow raw buffers to be used for flow dissection, allowing drivers to determine the optimal "linear pull" size for devices that DMA into pools of pages. The objective is to get exactly the necessary amount of headers into the linear SKB area pre-pulled, but no more. The new interface drivers use is eth_get_headlen(). From WANG Cong, with driver conversions (several had their own by-hand duplicated implementations) by Alexander Duyck and Eric Dumazet. 6) Support checksumming more smoothly and efficiently for encapsulations, and add "foo over UDP" facility. From Tom Herbert. 7) Add Broadcom SF2 switch driver to DSA layer, from Florian Fainelli. 8) eBPF now can load programs via a system call and has an extensive testsuite. Alexei Starovoitov and Daniel Borkmann. 9) Major overhaul of the packet scheduler to use RCU in several major areas such as the classifiers and rate estimators. From John Fastabend. 10) Add driver for Intel FM10000 Ethernet Switch, from Alexander Duyck. 11) Rearrange TCP_SKB_CB() to reduce cache line misses, from Eric Dumazet. 12) Add Datacenter TCP congestion control algorithm support, From Florian Westphal. 13) Reorganize sk_buff so that __copy_skb_header() is significantly faster.

2014-10-03locking/lockdep: Revert qrwlock recusive stuffPeter Zijlstra1-49/+7
Commit f0bab73cb539 ("locking/lockdep: Restrict the use of recursive read_lock() with qrwlock") changed lockdep to try and conform to the qrwlock semantics which differ from the traditional rwlock semantics. In particular qrwlock is fair outside of interrupt context, but in interrupt context readers will ignore all fairness. The problem modeling this is that read and write side have different lock state (interrupts) semantics but we only have a single representation of these. Therefore lockdep will get confused, thinking the lock can cause interrupt lock inversions. So revert it for now; the old rwlock semantics were already imperfectly modeled and the qrwlock extra won't fit either. If we want to properly fix this, I think we need to resurrect the work by Gautham did a few years ago that split the read and write state of locks: http://lwn.net/Articles/332801/ FWIW the locking selftest that would've failed (and was reported by Borislav earlier) is something like: RL(X1); /* IRQ-ON */ LOCK(A); UNLOCK(A); RU(X1); IRQ_ENTER(); RL(X1); /* IN-IRQ */ RU(X1); IRQ_EXIT(); At which point it would report that because A is an IRQ-unsafe lock we can suffer the following inversion: CPU0 CPU1 lock(A) lock(X1) lock(A) <IRQ> lock(X1) And this is 'wrong' because X1 can recurse (assuming the above lock are in fact read-lock) but lockdep doesn't know about this.

2014-09-28lzo: check for length overrun in variable length encoding.Willy Tarreau1-6/+37
This fix ensures that we never meet an integer overflow while adding 255 while parsing a variable length encoding. It works differently from commit 206a81c ("lzo: properly check for overruns") because instead of ensuring that we don't overrun the input, which is tricky to guarantee due to many assumptions in the code, it simply checks that the cumulated number of 255 read cannot overflow by bounding this number. The MAX_255_COUNT is the maximum number of times we can add 255 to a base count without overflowing an integer. The multiply will overflow when multiplying 255 by more than MAXINT/255. The sum will overflow earlier depending on the base count. Since the base count is taken from a u8 and a few bits, it is safe to assume that it will always be lower than or equal to 2*255, thus we can always prevent any overflow by accepting two less 255 steps. This patch also reduces the CPU overhead and actually increases performance by 1.1% compared to the initial code, while the previous fix costs 3.1% (measured on x86_64). The fix needs to be backported to all currently supported stable kernels. Reported-by: Willem Pinckaers <willem@lekkertech.net> Cc: "Don A.

2014-09-24percpu_ref: make INIT_ATOMIC and switch_to_atomic() stickyTejun Heo1-5/+15
Currently, a percpu_ref which is initialized with PERPCU_REF_INIT_ATOMIC or switched to atomic mode via switch_to_atomic() automatically reverts to percpu mode on the first percpu_ref_reinit(). This makes the atomic mode difficult to use for cases where a percpu_ref is used as a persistent on/off switch which may be cycled multiple times. This patch makes such atomic state sticky so that it survives through kill/reinit cycles. After this patch, atomic state is cleared only by an explicit percpu_ref_switch_to_percpu() call.

2014-09-24percpu_ref: add PERCPU_REF_INIT_* flagsTejun Heo1-5/+18
With the recent addition of percpu_ref_reinit(), percpu_ref now can be used as a persistent switch which can be turned on and off repeatedly where turning off maps to killing the ref and waiting for it to drain; however, there currently isn't a way to initialize a percpu_ref in its off (killed and drained) state, which can be inconvenient for certain persistent switch use cases. Similarly, percpu_ref_switch_to_atomic/percpu() allow dynamic selection of operation mode; however, currently a newly initialized percpu_ref is always in percpu mode making it impossible to avoid the latency overhead of switching to atomic mode. This patch adds @flags to percpu_ref_init() and implements the following flags. * PERCPU_REF_INIT_ATOMIC : start ref in atomic mode * PERCPU_REF_INIT_DEAD : start ref killed and drained These flags should be able to serve the above two use cases. v2: target_core_tpg.c conversion was missing.

2014-09-24percpu_ref: decouple switching to percpu mode and reinitTejun Heo1-19/+54
percpu_ref has treated the dropping of the base reference and switching to atomic mode as an integral operation; however, there's nothing inherent tying the two together. The use cases for percpu_ref have been expanding continuously. While the current init/kill/reinit/exit model can cover a lot, the coupling of kill/reinit with atomic/percpu mode switching is turning out to be too restrictive for use cases where many percpu_refs are created and destroyed back-to-back with only some of them reaching extended operation. The coupling also makes implementing always-atomic debug mode difficult. This patch separates out percpu mode switching into percpu_ref_switch_to_percpu() and reimplements percpu_ref_reinit() on top of it. * DEAD still requires ATOMIC. A dead ref can't be switched to percpu mode w/o going through reinit. v2: __percpu_ref_switch_to_percpu() was missing static. Fixed. Reported by Fengguang aka kbuild test robot.

Among get/put operations, percpu_ref_tryget_live() is the only one which cares about DEAD. * percpu_ref_switch_to_atomic() can be called multiple times on the same ref. This means that multiple @confirm_switch may get queued up which we can't do reliably without extra memory area. This is handled by making the later invocation synchronously wait for the completion of the previous one. This isn't particularly desirable but such synchronous waits shouldn't happen in most cases.

2014-09-24percpu_ref: add PCPU_REF_DEADTejun Heo1-8/+11
percpu_ref will be restructured so that percpu/atomic mode switching and reference killing are dedoupled. In preparation, add PCPU_REF_DEAD and PCPU_REF_ATOMIC_DEAD which is OR of ATOMIC and DEAD. For now, ATOMIC and DEAD are changed together and all PCPU_REF_ATOMIC uses are converted to PCPU_REF_ATOMIC_DEAD without causing any behavior changes. percpu_ref_init() now specifies an explicit alignment when allocating the percpu counters so that the pointer has enough unused low bits to accomodate the flags. Note that one flag was fine as min alignment for percpu memory is 2 bytes but two flags are already too many for the natural alignment of unsigned longs on archs like cris and m68k. v2: The original patch had BUILD_BUG_ON() which triggers if unsigned long's alignment isn't enough to accomodate the flags, which triggered on cris and m64k. percpu_ref_init() updated to specify the required alignment explicitly.

2014-09-24blk-mq, percpu_ref: implement a kludge for SCSI blk-mq stall during probeTejun Heo1-0/+16
blk-mq uses percpu_ref for its usage counter which tracks the number of in-flight commands and used to synchronously drain the queue on freeze. percpu_ref shutdown takes measureable wallclock time as it involves a sched RCU grace period. This means that draining a blk-mq takes measureable wallclock time. One would think that this shouldn't matter as queue shutdown should be a rare event which takes place asynchronously w.r.t. userland. Unfortunately, SCSI probing involves synchronously setting up and then tearing down a lot of request_queues back-to-back for non-existent LUNs. This means that SCSI probing may take more than ten seconds when scsi-mq is used. This will be properly fixed by implementing a mechanism to keep q->mq_usage_counter in atomic mode till genhd registration; however, that involves rather big updates to percpu_ref which is difficult to apply late in the devel cycle (v3.17-rc6 at the moment). As a stop-gap measure till the proper fix can be implemented in the next cycle, this patch introduces __percpu_ref_kill_expedited() and makes blk_mq_freeze_queue() use it. This is heavy-handed but should work for testing the experimental SCSI blk-mq implementation.
