2005-08-05[PATCH] Fix semundo lock leakageIngo Molnar1-7/+3
semundo->lock can leak if semundo->refcount goes from 2 to 1 while another thread has it locked. This causes major problems for PREEMPT kernels. The simplest fix for now is to undo the single-thread optimization. This bug was found via relentless testing by Dominik Karall.

2005-08-05[PATCH] blk: fix tag shrinking (revive real_max_size)Tejun Heo2-3/+16
My patch in commit fa72b903f75e4f0f0b2c2feed093005167da4023 incorrectly removed blk_queue_tag->real_max_depth. The original resize implementation was incorrect in the following points. * actual allocation size of tag_index was shorter than real_max_size, but assumed to be of the same size, possibly causing memory access beyond the allocated area. * bits in tag_map between max_deptn and real_max_depth were initialized to 1's, making the tags permanently reserved. In an attempt to fix above two bugs, I had removed allocation optimization in init_tag_map and real_max_size. Tag map/index were allocated and freed immediately during resize. Unfortunately, I wasn't considering that tag map/index can be resized dynamically with tags beyond new_depth active. This led to accessing freed area after shrinking tags and led to the following bug reporting thread on linux-scsi. http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-scsi&m=112319898111885&w=2 To fix the problem, I've revived real_max_depth without allocation optimization in init_tag_map, and Andrew Vasquez confirmed that the problem was fixed. As Jens is not going to be available for a week, he asked me to make sure that this patch reaches you. http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-scsi&m=112325778530886&w=2 Also, a comment was added to make sure that real_max_size is needed for dynamic shrinking.

2005-08-05[PATCH] Fix hugepage crash on failing mmap()David Gibson1-1/+10
This patch fixes a crash in the hugepage code. unmap_hugepage_area() was assuming that (due to prefault) PTEs must exist for all the area in question. However, this may not be the case, if mmap() encounters an error before the prefault and calls unmap_region() to clean up any partial mapping. Depending on the hugepage configuration, this crash can be triggered by an unpriveleged user.

2005-08-05[PATCH] tpm_infineon: Support for new TPM 1.2 and PNPACPIMarcel Selhorst2-44/+113
This patch includes support for the new Infineon Trusted Platform Module SLB 9635 TT 1.2 and does further include ACPI-support for both chip versions (SLD 9630 TT 1.1 and SLB9635 TT 1.2). Since the ioports and configuration registers are not correctly set on some machines, the configuration is now done via PNPACPI, which reads out the correct values out of the DSDT-table. Note that you have to have CONFIG_PNP, CONFIG_ACPI_BUS and CONFIG_PNPACPI enabled to run this driver (assuming that mainboards including a TPM do have the need for ACPI anyway).

2005-08-05[PATCH] rtc: msleep() cannot be used from interruptPetr Vandrovec1-2/+5
Since the beginning of July my Opteron box was randomly crashing and being rebooted by hardware watchdog. Today it finally did it in front of me, and this patch will hopefully fix it. The problem is that at the end of June (the 28th, to be exact: commit 47f176fdaf8924bc83fddcf9658f2fd3ef60d573, "[PATCH] Using msleep() instead of HZ") rtc_get_rtc_time was converted to use msleep() instead of busy waiting. But rtc_get_rtc_time is used by hpet_rtc_interrupt, and scheduling is not allowed during interrupt. So I'm reverting this part of original change, replacing msleep() back with busy loop. The original code was busy waiting for up to 20ms, but on my hardware in the worst case update-in-progress bit was asserted for at most 363 passes through loop (on 2GHz dual Opteron), much less than even one jiffie, not even talking about 20ms. So I changed code to just wait only as long as necessary. Otherwise when RTC was set to generate 8192Hz timer, it stopped doing anything for 20ms (160 pulses were skipped!) from time to time, and this is rather suboptimal as far as I can tell.

2005-08-04[PATCH] __vm_enough_memory() signedness fixSimon Derr2-2/+10
We have found what seems to be a small bug in __vm_enough_memory() when sysctl_overcommit_memory is set to OVERCOMMIT_NEVER. When this bug occurs the systems fails to boot, with /sbin/init whining about fork() returning ENOMEM. We hunted down the problem to this: The deferred update mecanism used in vm_acct_memory(), on a SMP system, allows the vm_committed_space counter to have a negative value. This should not be a problem since this counter is known to be inaccurate. But in __vm_enough_memory() this counter is compared to the `allowed' variable, which is an unsigned long. This comparison is broken since it will consider the negative values of vm_committed_space to be huge positive values, resulting in a memory allocation failure.

2005-08-04[PATCH] tcp: fix TSO sizing bugsDavid S. Miller1-28/+28
MSS changes can be lost since we preemptively initialize the tso_segs count for an SKB before we %100 commit to sending it out. So, by the time we send it out, the tso_size information can be stale due to PMTU events. This mucks up all of the logic in our send engine, and can even result in the BUG() triggering in tcp_tso_should_defer(). Another problem we have is that we're storing the tp->mss_cache, not the SACK block normalized MSS, as the tso_size. That's wrong too. Signed-off-by: David S.

2005-08-04[PATCH] USB: ehci: microframe handling fixDavid Brownell4-9/+16
This patch has a one line oops fix, plus related cleanups. - The bugfix uses microframe scheduling data given to the hardware to test "is this a periodic QH", rather than testing for nonzero period. (Prevents an oops by providing the correct answer.) - The cleanup going along with the patch should make it clearer what's going on whenever those bitfields are accessed. The bug came about when, around January, two new kinds of EHCI interrupt scheduling operation were added, involving both the high speed (24 KBytes per millisec) and low/full speed (1-64 bytes per millisec) microframe scheduling. A driver for the Edirol UA-1000 Audio Capture Unit ran into the oops; it used one of the newly supported high speed modes.

This function is a mere wrapper on x86 and friends, however on some others it already exists, is added in this patch (alpha, arm, ppc, ppc64) or still needs to be provided (parisc -- where is its pcibios_resource_to_bus() ?).

2005-08-04[PATCH] PCI: restore BAR values after D3hot->D0 for devices that need itJohn W. Linville4-5/+65
Some PCI devices (e.g. 3c905B, 3c556B) lose all configuration (including BARs) when transitioning from D3hot->D0. This leaves such a device in an inaccessible state. The patch below causes the BARs to be restored when enabling such a device, so that its driver will be able to access it. The patch also adds pci_restore_bars as a new global symbol, and adds a correpsonding EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL for that. Some firmware (e.g. Thinkpad T21) leaves devices in D3hot after a (re)boot. Most drivers call pci_enable_device very early, so devices left in D3hot that lose configuration during the D3hot->D0 transition will be inaccessible to their drivers. Drivers could be modified to account for this, but it would be difficult to know which drivers need modification. This is especially true since often many devices are covered by the same driver. It likely would be necessary to replicate code across dozens of drivers. The patch below should trigger only when transitioning from D3hot->D0 (or at boot), and only for devices that have the "no soft reset" bit cleared in the PM control register. I believe it is safe to include this patch as part of the PCI infrastructure. The cleanest implementation of pci_restore_bars was to call pci_update_resource. Unfortunately, that does not currently exist for the sparc64 architecture. The patch below includes a null implemenation of pci_update_resource for sparc64. Some have expressed interest in making general use of the the pci_restore_bars function, so that has been exported to GPL licensed modules. Signed-off-by: John W.

2005-08-04[PATCH] Destruction of failed keyring oopsesDavid Howells1-1/+5
The attached patch makes sure that a keyring that failed to instantiate properly is destroyed without oopsing [CAN-2005-2099]. The problem occurs in three stages: (1) The key allocator initialises the type-specific data to all zeroes. In the case of a keyring, this will become a link in the keyring name list when the keyring is instantiated. (2) If a user (any user) attempts to add a keyring with anything other than an empty payload, the keyring instantiation function will fail with an error and won't add the keyring to the name list. (3) The keyring's destructor then sees that the keyring has a description (name) and tries to remove the keyring from the name list, which oopses because the link pointers are both zero. This bug permits any user to take down a box trivially.

The attached patch prevents an error during the key session joining operation from hanging future joins in the D state [CAN-2005-2098]. The problem is that the error handling path for the KEYCTL_JOIN_SESSION_KEYRING operation has one error path that doesn't release the session management semaphore. Further attempts to get the semaphore will then sleep for ever in the D state. This can happen in four situations, all involving an attempt to allocate a new session keyring: (1) ENOMEM. (2) The users key quota being reached. (3) A keyring name that is an empty string. (4) A keyring name that is too long. Any user may attempt this operation, and so any user can cause the problem to occur.

Firstly, R1BIO_Degraded was being set in a number of places in the resync code, but is never used there, so get rid of those settings. Then: When doing a resync, we want to clear the bit in the bitmap iff the array will be non-degraded when the sync has completed. However the current code would clear the bitmap if the array was non-degraded when the resync *started*, which obviously isn't right (it is for 'resync' but not for 'recovery' - i.e. rebuilding a failed drive). This patch calculated 'still_degraded' and uses the to tell bitmap_start_sync whether this sync should clear the corresponding bit.

Fix up arm26, cris, frv, m68k, parisc and sh64 too..
2005-08-04[PATCH] x86-64: use proper VM_FAULT_xxx macrosAlexander Nyberg1-3/+3
x86_64 had hardcoded the VM_ numbers so it broke down when the numbers were changed. Signed-off-by: Alexander Nyberg <alexn@telia.com> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2005-08-04[PATCH] Keys: Fix key management syscall interface bugsDavid Howells2-5/+8
This fixes five bugs in the key management syscall interface: (1) add_key() returns 0 rather than EINVAL if the key type is "". Checking the key type isn't "" should be left to lookup_user_key(). (2) request_key() returns ENOKEY rather than EPERM if the key type begins with a ".". lookup_user_key() can't do this because internal key types begin with a ".". (3) Key revocation always returns 0, even if it fails. (4) Key read can return EAGAIN rather than EACCES under some circumstances. A key is permitted to by read by a process if it doesn't grant read access, but it does grant search access and it is in the process's keyrings. That search returns EAGAIN if it fails, and this needs translating to EACCES. (5) request_key() never adds the new key to the destination keyring if one is supplied. The wrong macro was being used to test for an error condition: PTR_ERR() will always return true, whether or not there's an error; this should've been IS_ERR().

2005-08-04[PATCH] Remove suspend() calls from shutdown pathBenjamin Herrenschmidt1-2/+0
This removes the calls to device_suspend() from the shutdown path that were added sometime during 2.6.13-rc*. They aren't working properly on a number of configs (I got reports from both ppc powerbook users and x86 users) causing the system to not shutdown anymore. I think it isn't the right approach at the moment anyway. We have already a shutdown() callback for the drivers that actually care about shutdown and the suspend() code isn't yet in a good enough shape to be so much generalized. Also, the semantics of suspend and shutdown are slightly different on a number of setups and the way this was patched in provides little way for drivers to cleanly differenciate. It should have been at least a different message. For 2.6.13, I think we should revert to 2.6.12 behaviour and have a working suspend back.
