2016-04-04mm, fs: get rid of PAGE_CACHE_* and page_cache_{get,release} macrosKirill A. Shutemov1-16/+16
PAGE_CACHE_{SIZE,SHIFT,MASK,ALIGN} macros were introduced *long* time ago with promise that one day it will be possible to implement page cache with bigger chunks than PAGE_SIZE. This promise never materialized. And unlikely will. We have many places where PAGE_CACHE_SIZE assumed to be equal to PAGE_SIZE. And it's constant source of confusion on whether PAGE_CACHE_* or PAGE_* constant should be used in a particular case, especially on the border between fs and mm. Global switching to PAGE_CACHE_SIZE != PAGE_SIZE would cause to much breakage to be doable. Let's stop pretending that pages in page cache are special. They are not. The changes are pretty straight-forward: - <foo> << (PAGE_CACHE_SHIFT - PAGE_SHIFT) -> <foo>; - <foo> >> (PAGE_CACHE_SHIFT - PAGE_SHIFT) -> <foo>; - PAGE_CACHE_{SIZE,SHIFT,MASK,ALIGN} -> PAGE_{SIZE,SHIFT,MASK,ALIGN}; - page_cache_get() -> get_page(); - page_cache_release() -> put_page(); This patch contains automated changes generated with coccinelle using script below. For some reason, coccinelle doesn't patch header files. I've called spatch for them manually. The only adjustment after coccinelle is revert of changes to PAGE_CAHCE_ALIGN definition: we are going to drop it later. There are few places in the code where coccinelle didn't reach. I'll fix them manually in a separate patch. Comments and documentation also will be addressed with the separate patch. virtual patch @@ expression E; @@ - E << (PAGE_CACHE_SHIFT - PAGE_SHIFT) + E @@ expression E; @@ - E >> (PAGE_CACHE_SHIFT - PAGE_SHIFT) + E @@ @@ - PAGE_CACHE_SHIFT + PAGE_SHIFT @@ @@ - PAGE_CACHE_SIZE + PAGE_SIZE @@ @@ - PAGE_CACHE_MASK + PAGE_MASK @@ expression E; @@ - PAGE_CACHE_ALIGN(E) + PAGE_ALIGN(E) @@ expression E; @@ - page_cache_get(E) + get_page(E) @@ expression E; @@ - page_cache_release(E) + put_page(E) Signed-off-by: Kirill A.

All other callers of splice_to_pipe() avoid calling it when nr_pages == 0, and we could make tracing_splice_read_pipe() do that too, but it seems reasonable to have splice_to_page() handle this condition gracefully.

2016-03-04vfs: pass a flags argument to vfs_readv/vfs_writevChristoph Hellwig1-1/+1
This way we can set kiocb flags also from the sync read/write path for the read_iter/write_iter operations.

2016-01-09fs: __generic_file_splice_read retry lookup on AOP_TRUNCATED_PAGEAbhi Das1-5/+3
During testing, I discovered that __generic_file_splice_read() returns 0 (EOF) when aops->readpage fails with AOP_TRUNCATED_PAGE on the first page of a single/multi-page splice read operation. This EOF return code causes the userspace test to (correctly) report a zero-length read error when it was expecting otherwise. The current strategy of returning a partial non-zero read when ->readpage returns AOP_TRUNCATED_PAGE works only when the failed page is not the first of the lot being processed. This patch attempts to retry lookup and call ->readpage again on pages that had previously failed with AOP_TRUNCATED_PAGE. With this patch, my tests pass and I haven't noticed any unwanted side effects. This version removes the thrice-retry loop and instead indefinitely retries lookups on AOP_TRUNCATED_PAGE errors from ->readpage. This behavior is now similar to do_generic_file_read().

2015-11-23vfs: Make sendfile(2) killable even betterJan Kara1-0/+7
Commit 296291cdd162 (mm: make sendfile(2) killable) fixed an issue where sendfile(2) was doing a lot of tiny writes into a filesystem and thus was unkillable for a long time. However sendfile(2) can be (mis)used to issue lots of writes into arbitrary file descriptor such as evenfd or similar special file descriptors which never hit the standard filesystem write path and thus are still unkillable. E.g. the following example from Dmitry burns CPU for ~16s on my test system without possibility to be killed: int r1 = eventfd(0, 0); int r2 = memfd_create("", 0); unsigned long n = 1<<30; fallocate(r2, 0, 0, n); sendfile(r1, r2, 0, n); There are actually quite a few tests for pending signals in sendfile code however we data to write is always available none of them seems to trigger. So fix the problem by adding a test for pending signal into splice_from_pipe_next() also before the loop waiting for pipe buffers to be available. This should fix all the lockup issues with sendfile of the do-ton-of-tiny-writes nature.

2015-06-24mm: do not ignore mapping_gfp_mask in page cache allocation pathsMichal Hocko1-1/+1
page_cache_read, do_generic_file_read, __generic_file_splice_read and __ntfs_grab_cache_pages currently ignore mapping_gfp_mask when calling add_to_page_cache_lru which might cause recursion into fs down in the direct reclaim path if the mapping really relies on GFP_NOFS semantic. This doesn't seem to be the case now because page_cache_read (page fault path) doesn't seem to suffer from the reclaim recursion issues and do_generic_file_read and __generic_file_splice_read also shouldn't be called under fs locks which would deadlock in the reclaim path. Anyway it is better to obey mapping gfp mask and prevent from later breakage.

2015-05-06splice: sendfile() at once fails for big filesChristophe Leroy1-1/+11
Using sendfile with below small program to get MD5 sums of some files, it appear that big files (over 64kbytes with 4k pages system) get a wrong MD5 sum while small files get the correct sum. This program uses sendfile() to send a file to an AF_ALG socket for hashing. /* md5sum2.c */ #include <stdio.h> #include <stdlib.h> #include <unistd.h> #include <string.h> #include <fcntl.h> #include <sys/socket.h> #include <sys/stat.h> #include <sys/types.h> #include <linux/if_alg.h> int main(int argc, char **argv) { int sk = socket(AF_ALG, SOCK_SEQPACKET, 0); struct stat st; struct sockaddr_alg sa = { .salg_family = AF_ALG, .salg_type = "hash", .salg_name = "md5", }; int n; bind(sk, (struct sockaddr*)&sa, sizeof(sa)); for (n = 1; n < argc; n++) { int size; int offset = 0; char buf[4096]; int fd; int sko; int i; fd = open(argv[n], O_RDONLY); sko = accept(sk, NULL, 0); fstat(fd, &st); size = st.st_size; sendfile(sko, fd, &offset, size); size = read(sko, buf, sizeof(buf)); for (i = 0; i < size; i++) printf("%2.2x", buf[i]); printf(" %s\n", argv[n]); close(fd); close(sko); } exit(0); } Test below is done using official linux patch files. First result is with a software based md5sum. Second result is with the program above. root@vgoip:~# ls -l patch-3.6.* -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 64011 Aug 24 12:01 patch-3.6.2.gz -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 94131 Aug 24 12:01 patch-3.6.3.gz root@vgoip:~# md5sum patch-3.6.* b3ffb9848196846f31b2ff133d2d6443 patch-3.6.2.gz c5e8f687878457db77cb7158c38a7e43 patch-3.6.3.gz root@vgoip:~# ./md5sum2 patch-3.6.* b3ffb9848196846f31b2ff133d2d6443 patch-3.6.2.gz 5fd77b24e68bb24dcc72d6e57c64790e patch-3.6.3.gz After investivation, it appears that sendfile() sends the files by blocks of 64kbytes (16 times PAGE_SIZE).

2015-04-15dax: unify ext2/4_{dax,}_file_operationsBoaz Harrosh1-0/+3
The original dax patchset split the ext2/4_file_operations because of the two NULL splice_read/splice_write in the dax case. In the vfs if splice_read/splice_write are NULL we then call default_splice_read/write. What we do here is make generic_file_splice_read aware of IS_DAX() so the original ext2/4_file_operations can be used as is. For write it appears that iter_file_splice_write is just fine. It uses the regular f_op->write(file,..) or new_sync_write(file, ...).

it's used only as a flag to distinguish normal pipes/FIFOs from the internal per-task one used by file-to-file splice. And pipe->files would work just as well for that purpose... Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>

2013-03-21Don't bother with redoing rw_verify_area() from default_file_splice_from()Al Viro1-1/+3
default_file_splice_from() ends up calling vfs_write() (via very convoluted callchain). It's an overkill, since we already have done rw_verify_area() in the caller by the time we call vfs_write() we are under set_fs(KERNEL_DS), so access_ok() is also pointless. Add a new helper (__kernel_write()), use it instead of kernel_write() in there. Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>

2013-01-06tcp: fix MSG_SENDPAGE_NOTLAST logicEric Dumazet1-1/+3
commit 35f9c09fe9c72e (tcp: tcp_sendpages() should call tcp_push() once) added an internal flag : MSG_SENDPAGE_NOTLAST meant to be set on all frags but the last one for a splice() call. The condition used to set the flag in pipe_to_sendpage() relied on splice() user passing the exact number of bytes present in the pipe, or a smaller one. But some programs pass an arbitrary high value, and the test fails. The effect of this bug is a lack of tcp_push() at the end of a splice(pipe -> socket) call, and possibly very slow or erratic TCP sessions. We should both test sd->total_len and fact that another fragment is in the pipe (pipe->nrbufs > 1) Many thanks to Willy for providing very clear bug report, bisection and test programs.
