2010-10-15llseek: automatically add .llseek fopArnd Bergmann339-73/+538
All file_operations should get a .llseek operation so we can make nonseekable_open the default for future file operations without a .llseek pointer. The three cases that we can automatically detect are no_llseek, seq_lseek and default_llseek. For cases where we can we can automatically prove that the file offset is always ignored, we use noop_llseek, which maintains the current behavior of not returning an error from a seek. New drivers should normally not use noop_llseek but instead use no_llseek and call nonseekable_open at open time. Existing drivers can be converted to do the same when the maintainer knows for certain that no user code relies on calling seek on the device file. The generated code is often incorrectly indented and right now contains comments that clarify for each added line why a specific variant was chosen. In the version that gets submitted upstream, the comments will be gone and I will manually fix the indentation, because there does not seem to be a way to do that using coccinelle. Some amount of new code is currently sitting in linux-next that should get the same modifications, which I will do at the end of the merge window. Many thanks to Julia Lawall for helping me learn to write a semantic patch that does all this. ===== begin semantic patch ===== // This adds an llseek= method to all file operations, // as a preparation for making no_llseek the default. // // The rules are // - use no_llseek explicitly if we do nonseekable_open // - use seq_lseek for sequential files // - use default_llseek if we know we access f_pos // - use noop_llseek if we know we don't access f_pos, // but we still want to allow users to call lseek // @ open1 exists @ identifier nested_open; @@ nested_open(...) { <+... nonseekable_open(...) ...+> } @ open exists@ identifier open_f; identifier i, f; identifier open1.nested_open; @@ int open_f(struct inode *i, struct file *f) { <+...

When the default llseek behavior gets changed to not allowing seek, all file operations that rely on the current behaviour need to use an explicit .llseek operation. The files that lkdtm uses in debugfs are regular files and they get read using simple_read_from_buffer, so generic_file_llseek is the right operation. Signed-off-by: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@arndb.de>

The default llseek operation is changing from default_llseek to no_llseek, so all code relying on the current behaviour needs to make that explicit. The wireless driver infrastructure and some of the drivers make use of generated debugfs files, so they cannot be converted by our script that automatically determines the right operation. All these files use debugfs and they typically rely on simple_read_from_buffer, so the best llseek operation here is generic_file_llseek. Signed-off-by: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@arndb.de> Cc: "John W.

The drm device drivers currently allow seeking on the character device but never care about the actual file position. When we change the default llseek operation to be no_llseek, calling llseek on a drm device would return an error condition, which is an API change. Explicitly setting noop_llseek lets us keep the current API. Signed-off-by: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@arndb.de> Cc: David Airlie <airlied@linux.ie> Cc: dri-devel@lists.freedesktop.org

2010-09-11PM / Hibernate: Avoid hitting OOM during preallocation of memoryRafael J. Wysocki1-20/+65
There is a problem in hibernate_preallocate_memory() that it calls preallocate_image_memory() with an argument that may be greater than the total number of available non-highmem memory pages. If that's the case, the OOM condition is guaranteed to trigger, which in turn can cause significant slowdown to occur during hibernation. To avoid that, make preallocate_image_memory() adjust its argument before calling preallocate_image_pages(), so that the total number of saveable non-highem pages left is not less than the minimum size of a hibernation image. Change hibernate_preallocate_memory() to try to allocate from highmem if the number of pages allocated by preallocate_image_memory() is too low. Modify free_unnecessary_pages() to take all possible memory allocation patterns into account. Reported-by: KOSAKI Motohiro <kosaki.motohiro@jp.fujitsu.com> Signed-off-by: Rafael J.

2010-09-10xfs: log IO completion workqueue is a high priority queueDave Chinner1-1/+2
The workqueue implementation in 2.6.36-rcX has changed, resulting in the workqueues no longer having dedicated threads for work processing. This has caused severe livelocks under heavy parallel create workloads because the log IO completions have been getting held up behind metadata IO completions. Hence log commits would stall, memory allocation would stall because pages could not be cleaned, and lock contention on the AIL during inode IO completion processing was being seen to slow everything down even further. By making the log Io completion workqueue a high priority workqueue, they are queued ahead of all data/metadata IO completions and processed before the data/metadata completions. Hence the log never gets stalled, and operations needed to clean memory can continue as quickly as possible. This avoids the livelock conditions and allos the system to keep running under heavy load as per normal.

2010-09-10execve: make responsive to SIGKILL with large argumentsRoland McGrath1-0/+7
An execve with a very large total of argument/environment strings can take a really long time in the execve system call. It runs uninterruptibly to count and copy all the strings. This change makes it abort the exec quickly if sent a SIGKILL. Note that this is the conservative change, to interrupt only for SIGKILL, by using fatal_signal_pending(). It would be perfectly correct semantics to let any signal interrupt the string-copying in execve, i.e. use signal_pending() instead of fatal_signal_pending(). We'll save that change for later, since it could have user-visible consequences, such as having a timer set too quickly make it so that an execve can never complete, though it always happened to work before.

This adds a preemption point during the copying of the argument and environment strings for execve, in copy_strings(). There is already a preemption point in the count() loop, so this doesn't add any new points in the abstract sense. When the total argument+environment strings are very large, the time spent copying them can be much more than a normal user time slice. So this change improves the interactivity of the rest of the system when one process is doing an execve with very large arguments.

The CONFIG_STACK_GROWSDOWN variant of setup_arg_pages() does not check the size of the argument/environment area on the stack. When it is unworkably large, shift_arg_pages() hits its BUG_ON. This is exploitable with a very large RLIMIT_STACK limit, to create a crash pretty easily. Check that the initial stack is not too large to make it possible to map in any executable. We're not checking that the actual executable (or intepreter, for binfmt_elf) will fit. So those mappings might clobber part of the initial stack mapping. But that is just userland lossage that userland made happen, not a kernel problem.

This results in the following RCU warning: =================================================== [ INFO: suspicious rcu_dereference_check() usage. ] --------------------------------------------------- security/keys/keyctl.c:1291 invoked rcu_dereference_check() without protection! other info that might help us debug this: rcu_scheduler_active = 1, debug_locks = 0 1 lock held by keyctl-session-/2137: #0: (tasklist_lock){.+.+..}, at: [<ffffffff811ae2ec>] keyctl_session_to_parent+0x60/0x236 stack backtrace: Pid: 2137, comm: keyctl-session- Not tainted 2.6.36-rc2-cachefs+ #1 Call Trace: [<ffffffff8105606a>] lockdep_rcu_dereference+0xaa/0xb3 [<ffffffff811ae379>] keyctl_session_to_parent+0xed/0x236 [<ffffffff811af77e>] sys_keyctl+0xb4/0xb6 [<ffffffff81001eab>] system_call_fastpath+0x16/0x1b The code should take the RCU read lock to make sure the parents credentials don't go away, even though it's holding a spinlock and has IRQ disabled.

2010-09-10drm/i915: don't enable self-refresh on IronlakeJesse Barnes2-2/+12
We don't know how to enable it safely, especially as outputs turn on and off. When disabling LP1 we also need to make sure LP2 and 3 are already disabled.

2010-09-10xfs: prevent reading uninitialized stack memoryDan Rosenberg1-0/+2
The XFS_IOC_FSGETXATTR ioctl allows unprivileged users to read 12 bytes of uninitialized stack memory, because the fsxattr struct declared on the stack in xfs_ioc_fsgetxattr() does not alter (or zero) the 12-byte fsx_pad member before copying it back to the user.

2010-09-10block: Range check cpu in blk_cpu_to_groupBrian King1-2/+6
While testing CPU DLPAR, the following problem was discovered. We were DLPAR removing the first CPU, which in this case was logical CPUs 0-3. CPUs 0-2 were already marked offline and we were in the process of offlining CPU 3. After marking the CPU inactive and offline in cpu_disable, but before the cpu was completely idle (cpu_die), we ended up in __make_request on CPU 3. There we looked at the topology map to see which CPU to complete the I/O on and found no CPUs in the cpu_sibling_map. This resulted in the block layer setting the completion cpu to be NR_CPUS, which then caused an oops when we tried to complete the I/O. Fix this by sanity checking the value we return from blk_cpu_to_group to be a valid cpu value. Signed-off-by: Brian King <brking@linux.vnet.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jaxboe@fusionio.com>

2010-09-09ipheth: remove incorrect devtype to WWANDan Williams1-6/+1
The 'wwan' devtype is meant for devices that require preconfiguration and *every* time setup before the ethernet interface can be used, like cellular modems which require a series of setup commands on serial ports or other mechanisms before the ethernet interface will handle packets. As ipheth only requires one-per-hotplug pairing setup with no preconfiguration (like APN, phone #, etc) and the network interface is usable at any time after that initial setup, remove the incorrect devtype wwan.
