2009-03-31md: move lots of #include lines out of .h files and into .cNeilBrown1-39/+0
This makes the includes more explicit, and is preparation for moving md_k.h to drivers/md/md.h Remove include/raid/md.h as its only remaining use was to #include other files. Signed-off-by: NeilBrown <neilb@suse.de>
2009-03-31md: move most content from md.h to md_k.hNeilBrown1-40/+0
The extern function definitions are kernel-internal definitions, so they belong in md_k.h The MD_*_VERSION values could reasonably go in a number of places, but md_u.h seems most reasonable. This leaves almost nothing in md.h. It will go soon. Signed-off-by: NeilBrown <neilb@suse.de>
2009-03-31md: move LEVEL_* definition from md_k.h to md_u.hNeilBrown1-2/+0
.. as they are part of the user-space interface. Also move MdpMinorShift into there so we can remove duplication. Lastly move mdp_major in. It is less obviously part of the user-space interface, but do_mounts_md.c uses it, and it is acting a bit like user-space. Signed-off-by: NeilBrown <neilb@suse.de>

2008-06-30md: resolve external metadata handling deadlock in md_allow_writeDan Williams1-1/+1
md_allow_write() marks the metadata dirty while holding mddev->lock and then waits for the write to complete. For externally managed metadata this causes a deadlock as userspace needs to take the lock to communicate that the metadata update has completed. Change md_allow_write() in the 'external' case to start the 'mark active' operation and then return -EAGAIN. The expected side effects while waiting for userspace to write 'active' to 'array_state' are holding off reshape (code currently handles -ENOMEM), cause some 'stripe_cache_size' change requests to fail, cause some GET_BITMAP_FILE ioctl requests to fall back to GFP_NOIO, and cause updates to 'raid_disks' to fail. Except for 'stripe_cache_size' changes these failures can be mitigated by coordinating with mdmon. md_write_start() still prevents writes from occurring until the metadata handler has had a chance to take action as it unconditionally waits for MD_CHANGE_CLEAN to be cleared.

2008-04-30md: support blocking writes to an array on device failureDan Williams1-0/+1
Allows a userspace metadata handler to take action upon detecting a device failure. Based on an original patch by Neil Brown. Changes: -added blocked_wait waitqueue to rdev -don't qualify Blocked with Faulty always let userspace block writes -added md_wait_for_blocked_rdev to wait for the block device to be clear, if userspace misses the notification another one is sent every 5 seconds -set MD_RECOVERY_NEEDED after clearing "blocked" -kill DoBlock flag, just test mddev->external Signed-off-by: Dan Williams <dan.j.williams@intel.com> Signed-off-by: Neil Brown <neilb@suse.de> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2008-04-18include: Remove unnecessary inclusions of asm/semaphore.hMatthew Wilcox1-1/+0
None of these files use any of the functionality promised by asm/semaphore.h. It's possible that they (or some user of them) rely on it dragging in some unrelated header file, but I can't build all these files, so we'll have to fix any build failures as they come up.

2007-01-26[PATCH] md: fix potential memalloc deadlock in mdNeilBrown1-1/+1
If a GFP_KERNEL allocation is attempted in md while the mddev_lock is held, it is possible for a deadlock to eventuate. This happens if the array was marked 'clean', and the memalloc triggers a write-out to the md device. For the writeout to succeed, the array must be marked 'dirty', and that requires getting the mddev_lock. So, before attempting a GFP_KERNEL allocation while holding the lock, make sure the array is marked 'dirty' (unless it is currently read-only).

2006-10-03[PATCH] md: replace magic numbers in sb_dirty with well defined bit flagsNeilBrown1-1/+0
Instead of magic numbers (0,1,2,3) in sb_dirty, we have some flags instead: MD_CHANGE_DEVS Some device state has changed requiring superblock update on all devices. MD_CHANGE_CLEAN The array has transitions from 'clean' to 'dirty' or back, requiring a superblock update on active devices, but possibly not on spares MD_CHANGE_PENDING A superblock update is underway. We wait for an update to complete by waiting for all flags to be clear. A flag can be set at any time, even during an update, without risk that the change will be lost. Stop exporting md_update_sb - isn't needed. Signed-off-by: Neil Brown <neilb@suse.de> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2006-09-30[PATCH] BLOCK: Make it possible to disable the block layer [try #6]David Howells1-0/+3
Make it possible to disable the block layer. Not all embedded devices require it, some can make do with just JFFS2, NFS, ramfs, etc - none of which require the block layer to be present. This patch does the following: (*) Introduces CONFIG_BLOCK to disable the block layer, buffering and blockdev support. (*) Adds dependencies on CONFIG_BLOCK to any configuration item that controls an item that uses the block layer. This includes: (*) Block I/O tracing. (*) Disk partition code. (*) All filesystems that are block based, eg: Ext3, ReiserFS, ISOFS. (*) The SCSI layer. As far as I can tell, even SCSI chardevs use the block layer to do scheduling. Some drivers that use SCSI facilities - such as USB storage - end up disabled indirectly from this. (*) Various block-based device drivers, such as IDE and the old CDROM drivers. (*) MTD blockdev handling and FTL. (*) JFFS - which uses set_bdev_super(), something it could avoid doing by taking a leaf out of JFFS2's book. (*) Makes most of the contents of linux/blkdev.h, linux/buffer_head.h and linux/elevator.h contingent on CONFIG_BLOCK being set. sector_div() is, however, still used in places, and so is still available. (*) Also made contingent are the contents of linux/mpage.h, linux/genhd.h and parts of linux/fs.h. (*) Makes a number of files in fs/ contingent on CONFIG_BLOCK. (*) Makes mm/bounce.c (bounce buffering) contingent on CONFIG_BLOCK. (*) set_page_dirty() doesn't call __set_page_dirty_buffers() if CONFIG_BLOCK is not enabled. (*) fs/no-block.c is created to hold out-of-line stubs and things that are required when CONFIG_BLOCK is not set: (*) Default blockdev file operations (to give error ENODEV on opening). (*) Makes some /proc changes: (*) /proc/devices does not list any blockdevs. (*) /proc/diskstats and /proc/partitions are contingent on CONFIG_BLOCK. (*) Makes some compat ioctl handling contingent on CONFIG_BLOCK. (*) If CONFIG_BLOCK is not defined, makes sys_quotactl() return -ENODEV if given command other than Q_SYNC or if a special device is specified. (*) In init/do_mounts.c, no reference is made to the blockdev routines if CONFIG_BLOCK is not defined. This does not prohibit NFS roots or JFFS2. (*) The bdflush, ioprio_set and ioprio_get syscalls can now be absent (return error ENOSYS by way of cond_syscall if so). (*) The seclvl_bd_claim() and seclvl_bd_release() security calls do nothing if CONFIG_BLOCK is not set, since they can't then happen.

2006-03-27[PATCH] md: Checkpoint and allow restart of raid5 reshapeNeilBrown1-0/+2
We allow the superblock to record an 'old' and a 'new' geometry, and a position where any conversion is up to. The geometry allows for changing chunksize, layout and level as well as number of devices. When using verion-0.90 superblock, we convert the version to 0.91 while the conversion is happening so that an old kernel will refuse the assemble the array. For version-1, we use a feature bit for the same effect. When starting an array we check for an incomplete reshape and restart the reshape process if needed. If the reshape stopped at an awkward time (like when updating the first stripe) we refuse to assemble the array, and let user-space worry about it.

2006-01-06[PATCH] md: remove personality numbering from mdNeilBrown1-2/+2
md supports multiple different RAID level, each being implemented by a 'personality' (which is often in a separate module). These personalities have fairly artificial 'numbers'. The numbers are use to: 1- provide an index into an array where the various personalities are recorded 2- identify the module (via an alias) which implements are particular personality. Neither of these uses really justify the existence of personality numbers. The array can be replaced by a linked list which is searched (array lookup only happens very rarely). Module identification can be done using an alias based on level rather than 'personality' number. The current 'raid5' modules support two level (4 and 5) but only one personality. This slight awkwardness (which was handled in the mapping from level to personality) can be better handled by allowing raid5 to register 2 personalities. With this change in place, the core md module does not need to have an exhaustive list of all possible personalities, so other personalities can be added independently. This patch also moves the check for chunksize being non-zero into the ->run routines for the personalities that need it, rather than having it in core-md. This has a side effect of allowing 'faulty' and 'linear' not to have a chunk-size set.

2005-11-09[PATCH] md: support BIO_RW_BARRIER for md/raid1NeilBrown1-0/+1
We can only accept BARRIER requests if all slaves handle barriers, and that can, of course, change with time.... So we keep track of whether the whole array seems safe for barriers, and also whether each individual rdev handles barriers. We initially assumes barriers are OK. When writing the superblock we try a barrier, and if that fails, we flag things for no-barriers. This will usually clear the flags fairly quickly. If writing the superblock finds that BIO_RW_BARRIER is -ENOTSUPP, we need to resubmit, so introduce function "md_super_wait" which waits for requests to finish, and retries ENOTSUPP requests without the barrier flag. When writing the real raid1, write requests which were BIO_RW_BARRIER but which aresn't supported need to be retried. So raid1d is enhanced to do this, and when any bio write completes (i.e. no retry needed) we remove it from the r1bio, so that devices needing retry are easy to find. We should hardly ever get -ENOTSUPP errors when writing data to the raid. It should only happen if: 1/ the device used to support BARRIER, but now doesn't. Few devices change like this, though raid1 can! or 2/ the array has no persistent superblock, so there was no opportunity to pre-test for barriers when writing the superblock.

This provides an alternate to storing the bitmap in a separate file. The bitmap can be stored at a given offset from the superblock.

2005-06-21[PATCH] md: fix deadlock due to md thread processing delayed requests.NeilBrown1-1/+1
Before completing a 'write' the md superblock might need to be updated. This is best done by the md_thread. The current code schedules this up and queues the write request for later handling by the md_thread. However some personalities (Raid5/raid6) will deadlock if the md_thread tries to submit requests to its own array. So this patch changes things so the processes submitting the request waits for the superblock to be written and then submits the request itself.

2005-06-21[PATCH] md: improve locking on 'safemode' and move superblock writesNeilBrown1-1/+1
When md marks the superblock dirty before a write, it calls generic_make_request (to write the superblock) from within generic_make_request (to write the first dirty block), which could cause problems later. With this patch, the superblock write is always done by the helper thread, and write request are delayed until that write completes. Also, the locking around marking the array dirty and writing the superblock is improved to avoid possible races.

2005-04-16Linux-2.6.12-rc2Linus Torvalds1-0/+84
Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
