pnp: increase number of devices supported per protocol

Increase the PNP "number of devices" limit.  We currently use an unsigned
char, which limits us to 256 devices per protocol.  This patch changes that to
an unsigned int.

Not all backends can take advantage of this: we limit ISAPNP to 10 devices in
isapnp_cfg_begin(), and PNPBIOS is limited to 256 devices because the BIOS
interfaces use a one-byte device node number.

But there is no limit on the number of PNPACPI devices we may have.  Large HP
Integrity machines have more than 256, which causes the current "unsigned char
number" to wrap around.  This causes errors like this:

    pnp: PnP ACPI init

This patch increases the limit to fix this PNPACPI problem.  It should not

asmlinkage_protect replaces prevent_tail_call

The prevent_tail_call() macro works around the problem of the compiler
clobbering argument words on the stack, which for asmlinkage functions
is the caller's (user's) struct pt_regs.  The tail/sibling-call
optimization is not the only way that the compiler can decide to use
stack argument words as scratch space, which we have to prevent.
Other optimizations can do it too.

Until we have new compiler support to make "asmlinkage" binding on the
compiler's own use of the stack argument frame, we have work around all
the manifestations of this issue that crop up.

More cases seem to be prevented by also keeping the incoming argument
variables live at the end of the function.  This makes their original
stack slots attractive places to leave those variables, so the compiler
tends not clobber them for something else.  It's still no guarantee, but
it handles some observed cases that prevent_tail_call() did not.

cfq-iosched: do not leak ioc_data across iosched switches

When switching scheduler from cfq, cfq_exit_queue() does not clear
ioc->ioc_data, leaving a dangling pointer that can deceive the following
lookups when the iosched is switched back to cfq.  The pattern that can
trigger that is the following:

    - elevator switch from cfq to something else;
    - module unloading, with elv_unregister() that calls cfq_free_io_context()
      on ioc freeing the cic (via the .trim op);
    - module gets reloaded and the elevator switches back to cfq;
    - reallocation of a cic at the same address as before (with a valid key).

To fix it just assign NULL to ioc_data in __cfq_exit_single_io_context(),
that is called from the regular exit path and from the elevator switching
code.  The only path that frees a cic and is not covered is the error handling
one, but cic's freed in this way are never cached in ioc_data.

[TCP]: tcp_simple_retransmit can cause S+L

This fixes Bugzilla #10384

tcp_simple_retransmit does L increment without any checking
whatsoever for overflowing S+L when Reno is in use.

The simplest scenario I can currently think of is rather
complex in practice (there might be some more straightforward
cases though). Ie., if mss is reduced during mtu probing, it
may end up marking everything lost and if some duplicate ACKs
arrived prior to that sacked_out will be non-zero as well,
leading to S+L > packets_out, tcp_clean_rtx_queue on the next
cumulative ACK or tcp_fastretrans_alert on the next duplicate
ACK will fix the S counter.

More straightforward (but questionable) solution would be to
just call tcp_reset_reno_sack() in tcp_simple_retransmit but
it would negatively impact the probe's retransmission, ie.,
the retransmissions would not occur if some duplicate ACKs
had arrived.

So I had to add reno sacked_out reseting to CA_Loss state
when the first cumulative ACK arrives (this stale sacked_out
might actually be the explanation for the reports of left_out
overflows in kernel prior to 2.6.23 and S+L overflow reports
of 2.6.24). However, this alone won't be enough to fix kernel
before 2.6.24 because it is building on top of the commit
1b6d427bb7e ([TCP]: Reduce sacked_out with reno when purging

[TCP]: Fix NewReno's fast rexmit/recovery problems with GSOed skb

Fixes a long-standing bug which makes NewReno recovery crippled.
With GSO the whole head skb was marked as LOST which is in
violation of NewReno procedure that only wants to mark one packet
and ended up breaking our TCP code by causing counter overflow
because our code was built on top of assumption about valid
NewReno procedure. This manifested as triggering a WARN_ON for
the overflow in a number of places.

It seems relatively safe alternative to just do nothing if
tcp_fragment fails due to oom because another duplicate ACK is
likely to be received soon and the fragmentation will be retried.

Special thanks goes to Soeren Sonnenburg <> who was
lucky enough to be able to reproduce this so that the warning
for the overflow was hit. It's not as easy task as it seems even
if this bug happens quite often because the amount of outstanding
data is pretty significant for the mismarkings to lead to an

Because it's very late in 2.6.25-rc cycle (if this even makes in
time), I didn't want to touch anything with SACK enabled here.
Fragmenting might be useful for it as well but it's more or less
a policy decision rather than mandatory fix. Thus there's no need
to rush and we can postpone considering tcp_fragment with SACK
for 2.6.26.

In 2.6.24 and earlier, this very same bug existed but the effect
is slightly different because of a small changes in the if
conditions that fit to the patch's context. With them nothing
got lost marker and thus no retransmissions happened.

x86: fix call to set_cyc2ns_scale() from time_cpufreq_notifier()

In time_cpufreq_notifier() the cpu id to act upon is held in freq->cpu. Use it
instead of smp_processor_id() in the call to set_cyc2ns_scale().
This makes the preempt_*able() unnecessary and lets set_cyc2ns_scale() update
the intended cpu's cyc2ns.

14 years agoscsi: fix sense_slab/bio swapping livelock
Hugh Dickins [Sun, 6 Apr 2008 22:56:57 +0000 (23:56 +0100)]
scsi: fix sense_slab/bio swapping livelock

Since 2.6.25-rc7, I've been seeing an occasional livelock on one x86_64
machine, copying kernel trees to tmpfs, paging out to swap.

Signature: 6000 pages under writeback but never getting written; most
tasks of interest trying to reclaim, but each get_swap_bio waiting for a
bio in mempool_alloc's io_schedule_timeout(5*HZ); every five seconds an
atomic page allocation failure report from kblockd failing to allocate a
sense_buffer in __scsi_get_command.

__scsi_get_command has a (one item) free_list to protect against this,
but rc1's [SCSI] use dynamically allocated sense buffer
de25deb18016f66dcdede165d07654559bb332bc upset that slightly.  When it
fails to allocate from the separate sense_slab, instead of giving up, it
must fall back to the command free_list, which is sure to have a
sense_buffer attached.

Either my earlier -rc testing missed this, or there's some recent
contributory factor.  One very significant factor is SLUB, which merges
slab caches when it can, and on 64-bit happens to merge both bio cache
and sense_slab cache into kmalloc's 128-byte cache: so that under this
swapping load, bios above are liable to gobble up all the slots needed
for scsi_cmnd sense_buffers below.

That's disturbing behaviour, and I tried a few things to fix it.  Adding
a no-op constructor to the sense_slab inhibits SLUB from merging it, and
stops all the allocation failures I was seeing; but it's rather a hack,
and perhaps in different configurations we have other caches on the
swapout path which are ill-merged.

Another alternative is to revert the separate sense_slab, using
cache-line-aligned sense_buffer allocated beyond scsi_cmnd from the one
kmem_cache; but that might waste more memory, and is only a way of
diverting around the known problem.

While I don't like seeing the allocation failures, and hate the idea of
all those bios piled up above a scsi host working one by one, it does
seem to emerge fairly soon with the livelock fix.  So lacking better
ideas, stick with that one clear fix for now.
