2011-04-18proc: do proper range check on readdir offsetLinus Torvalds
Rather than pass in some random truncated offset to the pid-related functions, check that the offset is in range up-front. This is just cleanup, the previous commit fixed the real problem. Cc: stable@kernel.org Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2011-04-18next_pidmap: fix overflow conditionLinus Torvalds
next_pidmap() just quietly accepted whatever 'last' pid that was passed in, which is not all that safe when one of the users is /proc. Admittedly the proc code should do some sanity checking on the range (and that will be the next commit), but that doesn't mean that the helper functions should just do that pidmap pointer arithmetic without checking the range of its arguments. So clamp 'last' to PID_MAX_LIMIT. The fact that we then do "last+1" doesn't really matter, the for-loop does check against the end of the pidmap array properly (it's only the actual pointer arithmetic overflow case we need to worry about, and going one bit beyond isn't going to overflow).

2011-04-18Input: xen-kbdfront - fix mouse getting stuck after save/restoreIgor Mammedov
Mouse gets "stuck" after restore of PV guest but buttons are in working condition. If driver has been configured for ABS coordinates at start it will get XENKBD_TYPE_POS events and then suddenly after restore it'll start getting XENKBD_TYPE_MOTION events, that will be dropped later and they won't get into user-space. Regression was introduced by hunk 5 and 6 of 5ea5254aa0ad269cfbd2875c973ef25ab5b5e9db ("Input: xen-kbdfront - advertise either absolute or relative coordinates"). Driver on restore should ask xen for request-abs-pointer again if it is available. So restore parts that did it before 5ea5254.

2011-04-18Btrfs: fix free space cache leakChris Mason
The free space caching code was recently reworked to cache all the pages it needed instead of using find_get_page everywhere. One loop was missed though, so it ended up leaking pages. This fixes it to use our page array instead of find_get_page. Signed-off-by: Chris Mason <chris.mason@oracle.com>

Instead of overloading __blk_run_queue to force an offload to kblockd add a new blk_run_queue_async helper to do it explicitly. I've kept the blk_queue_stopped check for now, but I suspect it's not needed as the check we do when the workqueue items runs should be enough.

2011-04-18md: fix up raid1/raid10 unplugging.NeilBrown
We just need to make sure that an unplug event wakes up the md thread, which is exactly what mddev_check_plugged does. Also remove some plug-related code that is no longer needed. Signed-off-by: NeilBrown <neilb@suse.de>
2011-04-18md: incorporate new plugging into raid5.NeilBrown
In raid5 plugging is used for 2 things: 1/ collecting writes that require a bitmap update 2/ collecting writes in the hope that we can create full stripes - or at least more-full. We now release these different sets of stripes when plug_cnt is zero. Also in make_request, we call mddev_check_plug to hopefully increase plug_cnt, and wake up the thread at the end if plugging wasn't achieved for some reason. Signed-off-by: NeilBrown <neilb@suse.de>
2011-04-18md: provide generic support for handling unplug callbacks.NeilBrown
When an md device adds a request to a queue, it can call mddev_check_plugged. If this succeeds then we know that the md thread will be woken up shortly, and ->plug_cnt will be non-zero until then, so some processing can be delayed. If it fails, then no unplug callback is expected and the make_request function needs to do whatever is required to make the request happen. Signed-off-by: NeilBrown <neilb@suse.de>
2011-04-18md - remove old plugging code.NeilBrown
md has some plugging infrastructure for RAID5 to use because the normal plugging infrastructure required a 'request_queue', and when called from dm, RAID5 doesn't have one of those available. This relied on the ->unplug_fn callback which doesn't exist any more. So remove all of that code, both in md and raid5. Subsequent patches with restore the plugging functionality. Signed-off-by: NeilBrown <neilb@suse.de>
2011-04-18md/dm - remove remains of plug_fn callback.NeilBrown
Now that unplugging is done differently, the unplug_fn callback is never called, so it can be completely discarded. Signed-off-by: NeilBrown <neilb@suse.de>

2011-04-18block: drop queue lock before calling __blk_run_queue() for kblockd puntJens Axboe
If we know we are going to punt to kblockd, we can drop the queue lock before calling into __blk_run_queue() since it only does a safe bit test and a workqueue call. Since kblockd needs to grab this very lock as one of the first things it does, it's a good optimization to drop the lock before waking kblockd. Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jaxboe@fusionio.com>
2011-04-18Revert "block: add callback function for unplug notification"Jens Axboe
MD can't use this since it really requires us to be able to keep more than a single piece of state for the unplug. Commit 048c9374 added the required support for MD, so get rid of this now unused code. This reverts commit f75664570d8b75469cc468f23c2b27220984983b.

2011-04-18powerpc/perf_event: Skip updating kernel counters if register value shrinksEric B Munson
Because of speculative event roll back, it is possible for some event coutners to decrease between reads on POWER7. This causes a problem with the way that counters are updated. Delta calues are calculated in a 64 bit value and the top 32 bits are masked. If the register value has decreased, this leaves us with a very large positive value added to the kernel counters. This patch protects against this by skipping the update if the delta would be negative. This can lead to a lack of precision in the coutner values, but from my testing the value is typcially fewer than 10 samples at a time.

2011-04-18powerpc/pseries: Use a kmem cache for DTL buffersNishanth Aravamudan
PAPR specifies that DTL buffers can not cross AMS environments (aka CMO in the PAPR) and can not cross a memory entitlement granule boundary (4k). This is found in section 14.11.3.2 H_REGISTER_VPA of the PAPR. kmalloc does not guarantee an alignment of the allocation, though, beyond 8 bytes (at least in my understanding). Create a special kmem cache for DTL buffers with the alignment requirement. Signed-off-by: Benjamin Herrenschmidt <benh@kernel.crashing.org>

2011-04-17i2c-algo-bit: Call pre/post_xfer for bit_testAlex Deucher
Apparently some distros set i2c-algo-bit.bit_test to 1 by default. In some cases this causes i2c_bit_add_bus to fail and prevents the i2c bus from being added. In the radeon case, we fail to add the ddc i2c buses which prevents the driver from being able to detect attached monitors. The i2c bus works fine even if bit_test fails. This is likely due to gpio switching that is required and handled in the pre/post_xfer hooks, so call the pre/post_xfer hooks in the bit test as well.

2011-04-16block: make unplug timer trace event correspond to the schedule() unplugJens Axboe
It's a pretty close match to what we had before - the timer triggering would mean that nobody unplugged the plug in due time, in the new scheme this matches very closely what the schedule() unplug now is. It's essentially the difference between an explicit unplug (IO unplug) or an implicit unplug (timer unplug, we scheduled with pending IO queued). Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jaxboe@fusionio.com>
2011-04-16block: let io_schedule() flush the plug inlineJens Axboe
Linus correctly observes that the most important dispatch cases are now done from kblockd, this isn't ideal for latency reasons. The original reason for switching dispatches out-of-line was to avoid too deep a stack, so by _only_ letting the "accidental" flush directly in schedule() be guarded by offload to kblockd, we should be able to get the best of both worlds. So add a blk_schedule_flush_plug() that offloads to kblockd, and only use that from the schedule() path. Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jaxboe@fusionio.com>

2011-04-15vfs: Fix absolute RCU path walk failures due to uninitialized seq numberTim Chen
During RCU walk in path_lookupat and path_openat, the rcu lookup frequently failed if looking up an absolute path, because when root directory was looked up, seq number was not properly set in nameidata. We dropped out of RCU walk in nameidata_drop_rcu due to mismatch in directory entry's seq number. We reverted to slow path walk that need to take references. With the following patch, I saw a 50% increase in an exim mail server benchmark throughput on a 4-socket Nehalem-EX system.
