[PATCH] kernel: shut up the IRQ mismatch messages

The problem is various drivers legally validly and sensibly try to claim
IRQs but the kernel insists on vomiting forth a giant irrelevant debugging
spew when the types clash.

Edit kernel/irq/manage.c go down to mismatch: in setup_irq() and ifdef out
the if clause that checks for mismatches.  It'll then just do the right
thing and work sanely.

For the current -mm kernel this will do the trick (and moves it into shared
irq debugging as in debug mode the info spew is useful).  I've had a
variant of this in my private tree for some time as I got fed up on the
mess on boxes where old legacy IRQs get reused.

[PATCH] inotify: read return val fix

Fix for inotify read bug (bugzilla.kernel.org #6999)

Problem Description:
When reading from an inotify device with an insufficient sized buffer, read(2)
will return 0 with no errno set. This is because of an logically incorrect
action from the user program thus should return an more logical value. My
suggestion is return -EINVAL as for bind(2).

This patch is based on the proposal from Ryan <wolf0403@hotmail.com>, and
feedback from John McCutchan <john@johnmccutchan.com>.

Return -EINVAL if we have not passed in enough buffer space to read a single
inotify event, rather than 0 which indicates that there is nothing to read.

Andreas Gruenbacher [Mon, 12 Feb 2007 08:51:47 +0000 (00:51 -0800)]
[PATCH] Fix d_path for lazy unmounts

Here is a bugfix to d_path.

First, when d_path() hits a lazily unmounted mount point, it tries to
prepend the name of the lazily unmounted dentry to the path name.  It gets
this wrong, and also overwrites the slash that separates the name from the
following pathname component.  This is demonstrated by the attached test
case, which prints "getcwd returned d_path-bugsubdir" with the bug.  The
correct result would be "getcwd returned d_path-bug/subdir".

It could be argued that the name of the root dentry should not be part of
the result of d_path in the first place.  On the other hand, what the
unconnected namespace was once reachable as may provide some useful hints
to users, and so that seems okay.

Second, it isn't always possible to tell from the __d_path result whether
the specified root and rootmnt (i.e., the chroot) was reached: lazy
unmounts of bind mounts will produce a path that does start with a
non-slash so we can tell from that, but other lazy unmounts will produce a
path that starts with a slash, just like "ordinary" paths.

The attached patch cleans up __d_path() to fix the bug with overlapping
pathname components.  It also adds a @fail_deleted argument, which allows
to get rid of some of the mess in sys_getcwd().  Grabbing the dcache_lock
can then also be moved into __d_path().  The patch also makes sure that
paths will only start with a slash for paths which are connected to the
root and rootmnt.

The @fail_deleted argument could be added to d_path() as well: this would
allow callers to recognize deleted files, without having to resort to the
ambiguous check for the " (deleted)" string at the end of the pathnames.
This is not currently done, but it might be worthwhile.

[PATCH] Make BH_Unwritten a first class bufferhead flag V2

Currently, XFS uses BH_PrivateStart for flagging unwritten extent state in a
bufferhead.  Recently, I found the long standing mmap/unwritten extent
conversion bug, and it was to do with partial page invalidation not clearing
the unwritten flag from bufferheads attached to the page but beyond EOF.  See
here for a full explaination:

http://oss.sgi.com/archives/xfs/2006-12/msg00196.html

The solution I have checked into the XFS dev tree involves duplicating code
from block_invalidatepage to clear the unwritten flag from the bufferhead(s),
and then calling block_invalidatepage() to do the rest.

Christoph suggested that this would be better solved by pushing the unwritten
flag into the common buffer head flags and just adding the call to
discard_buffer():

This patch contains two fixes for RapisIO enumeration logic:

1. Fix enumeration in configurations with multiple switches. The patch adds:

   a. Enumeration of an empty switch.  Empty switch is a switch that
      does not have any endpoint devices attached to it (except host device
      or previous switch in a chain).  New code assigns a phony destination
      ID associated with the switch and sets up corresponding routes.

   b. Adds a second pass to the enumeration to setup routes to
      devices discovered after switch was scanned.

2. Fix enumeration failure when riohdid parameter has non-zero value.
   Current version fails to setup response path to the host when it has
   destination ID other that 0.

[PATCH] order of lockdep off/on in vprintk() should be changed

The order of locking between lockdep_off/on() and local_irq_save/restore() in
vprintk() should be changed.

* In kernel/printk.c :

vprintk() does :

preempt_disable()
local_irq_save()
lockdep_off()
spin_lock(&logbuf_lock)
spin_unlock(&logbuf_lock)
if(!down_trylock(&console_sem))
   up(&console_sem)
lockdep_on()
local_irq_restore()
preempt_enable()

The goals here is to make sure we do not call printk() recursively from
kernel/lockdep.c:__lock_acquire() (called from spin_* and down/up) nor from
kernel/lockdep.c:trace_hardirqs_on/off() (called from local_irq_restore/save).
It can then potentially call printk() through mark_held_locks/mark_lock.

It correctly protects against the spin_lock call and the up/down call, but it
does not protect against local_irq_restore. It could cause infinite recursive
printk/trace_hardirqs_on() calls when printk() is called from the
mark_lock() error handing path.

We should change the locking so it becomes correct :

preempt_disable()
lockdep_off()
local_irq_save()
spin_lock(&logbuf_lock)
spin_unlock(&logbuf_lock)
if(!down_trylock(&console_sem))
   up(&console_sem)
local_irq_restore()
lockdep_on()
preempt_enable()

[PATCH] buffer: memorder fix

unlock_buffer(), like unlock_page(), must not clear the lock without
ensuring that the critical section is closed.

Mingming later sent the same patch, saying:

  We are running SDET benchmark and saw double free issue for ext3 extended
  attributes block, which complains the same xattr block already being freed (in
  ext3_xattr_release_block()).  The problem could also been triggered by
  multiple threads loop untar/rm a kernel tree.

  The race is caused by missing a memory barrier at unlock_buffer() before the
  lock bit being cleared, resulting in possible concurrent h_refcounter update.
  That causes a reference counter leak, then later leads to the double free that
  we have seen.

  Inside unlock_buffer(), there is a memory barrier is placed *after* the lock
  bit is being cleared, however, there is no memory barrier *before* the bit is
  cleared.  On some arch the h_refcount update instruction and the clear bit
  instruction could be reordered, thus leave the critical section re-entered.

  The race is like this: For example, if the h_refcount is initialized as 1,

  cpu 0:                                   cpu1
  --------------------------------------   -----------------------------------
  lock_buffer() /* test_and_set_bit */
  clear_buffer_locked(bh);
                                          lock_buffer() /* test_and_set_bit */
  h_refcount = h_refcount+1; /* = 2*/     h_refcount = h_refcount + 1; /*= 2 */
                                          clear_buffer_locked(bh);
  ....                                    ......

  We lost a h_refcount here. We need a memory barrier before the buffer head lock
  bit being cleared to force the order of the two writes.  Please apply.

[PATCH] extend the set of "__attribute__" shortcut macros

Extend the set of "__attribute__" shortcut macros, and remove identical
(and now superfluous) definitions from a couple of source files.

based on a page at robert love's blog:

http://rlove.org/log/2005102601

extend the set of shortcut macros defined in compiler-gcc.h with the
following:

#define __packed                       __attribute__((packed))
#define __weak                         __attribute__((weak))
#define __naked                        __attribute__((naked))
#define __noreturn                     __attribute__((noreturn))
#define __pure                         __attribute__((pure))
#define __aligned(x)                   __attribute__((aligned(x)))
#define __printf(a,b)                  __attribute__((format(printf,a,b)))

Once these are in place, it's up to subsystem maintainers to decide if they
want to take advantage of them.  there is already a strong precedent for
using shortcuts like this in the source tree.

The ones that might give people pause are "__aligned" and "__printf", but
shortcuts for both of those are already in use, and in some ways very
confusingly.  note the two very different definitions for a macro named
"ALIGNED":

  drivers/net/sgiseeq.c:#define ALIGNED(x) ((((unsigned long)(x)) + 0xf) & ~(0xf))
  drivers/scsi/ultrastor.c:#define ALIGNED(x) __attribute__((aligned(x)))

also:

  include/acpi/platform/acgcc.h:
    #define ACPI_PRINTF_LIKE(c) __attribute__ ((__format__ (__printf__, c, c+1)))

Given the precedent, then, it seems logical to at least standardize on a
consistent set of these macros.

and mkdir creates directories as 0777.

This appears to have worked right until 2.6.11, when a fix to the default
mode on symlinks (always 0777) assumed VFS applies umask: which it does,
unless the mount is marked for ACLs; but ext[234] set MS_POSIXACL in
s_flags according to s_mount_opt set according to def_mount_opts.

We could revert to the 2.6.10 ext[234]_init_acl (adding an S_ISLNK test);
but other filesystems only set MS_POSIXACL when ACLs are configured.  We
could fix this at another level; but it seems most robust to avoid setting
the s_mount_opt flag in the first place (at the expense of more ifdefs).

Likewise don't set the XATTR_USER flag when built without XATTR support.

fix-rmmod-read-write-races-in-proc-entries.patch doesn't want dynamically

Regardless of module status, switch to statically allocated ->proc_fops which

[PATCH] raw: don't allow the creation of a raw device with minor number 0

Minor number 0 (under the raw major) is reserved for the rawctl device
file, which is used to query, set, and unset raw device bindings.  However,
the ioctl interface does not protect the user from specifying a raw device
with minor number 0:

$ sudo ./raw /dev/raw/raw0 /dev/VolGroup00/swap
/dev/raw/raw0:  bound to major 253, minor 2
$ ls -l /dev/rawctl
ls: /dev/rawctl: No such file or directory
$ ls -l /dev/raw/raw0
crw------- 1 root root 162, 0 Jan 12 10:51 /dev/raw/raw0
$ sudo ./raw -qa
Cannot open master raw device '/dev/rawctl' (No such file or directory)

As you can see, this prevents any further raw operations from
succeeding.  The fix (from Steve Fernandez) is quite simple--do not
allow the allocation of minor number 0.

13 years ago[PATCH] RTC framework driver for CMOS RTCs
David Brownell [Sat, 10 Feb 2007 09:46:02 +0000 (01:46 -0800)]
[PATCH] RTC framework driver for CMOS RTCs

This is an "RTC framework" driver for the "CMOS" RTCs which are standard on
PCs and some other platforms.  That's MC146818 compatible silicon.
Advantages of this vs.  drivers/char/rtc.c (use one _or_ the other, only
one will be able to claim the RTC irq) include:

 - This leverages both the new RTC framework and the driver model; both
   PNPACPI and platform device modes are supported.  (A separate patch
   creates a platform device on PCs where PNPACPI isn't configured.)

 - It supports common extensions like longer alarms.  (A separate patch
   exports that information from ACPI through platform_data.)

 - Likewise, system wakeup events use "real driver model support", with
   policy control via sysfs "wakeup" attributes and and using normal rtc
   ioctls to manage wakeup.  (Patch in the works.  The ACPI hooks are
   known; /proc/acpi/alarm can vanish.  Making it work with EFI will
   be a minor challenge to someone with e.g. a MiniMac.)

It's not yet been tested on non-x86 systems, without ACPI, or with HPET.
And the RTC framework will surely have teething pains on "mainstream"
PC-based systems (though must embedded Linux systems use it heavily), not
limited to sorting out the "/dev/rtc0" issue (udev easily tweaked).  Also,
the ALSA rtctimer code doesn't use the new RTC API.

Otherwise, this should be a no-known-regressions replacement for the old
drivers/char/rtc.c driver, and should help the non-embedded distros (and
the new timekeeping code) start to switch to the framework.

Note also that any systems using "rtc-m48t86" are candidates to switch over
to this more functional driver; the platform data is different, and the way
bytes are read is different, but otherwise those chips should be compatible.
