2011-05-28ns: Wire up the setns system callEric W. Biederman1-0/+1
32bit and 64bit on x86 are tested and working. The rest I have looked at closely and I can't find any problems. setns is an easy system call to wire up. It just takes two ints so I don't expect any weird architecture porting problems. While doing this I have noticed that we have some architectures that are very slow to get new system calls. cris seems to be the slowest where the last system calls wired up were preadv and pwritev. avr32 is weird in that recvmmsg was wired up but never declared in unistd.h. frv is behind with perf_event_open being the last syscall wired up. On h8300 the last system call wired up was epoll_wait. On m32r the last system call wired up was fallocate. mn10300 has recvmmsg as the last system call wired up. The rest seem to at least have syncfs wired up which was new in the 2.6.39. v2: Most of the architecture support added by Daniel Lezcano <dlezcano@fr.ibm.com> v3: ported to v2.6.36-rc4 by: Eric W.

The 2.6.36-rc kernel added three new system calls: fanotify_init, fanotify_mark, and prlimit64. This patch wires them up on ARM. The only non-trivial issue here is the u64 argument to sys_fanotify_mark(), but it is the 3rd argument and thus passed in r2/r3 in both kernel and user space, so it causes no problems.

2010-08-15ARM: 6329/1: wire up sys_accept4() on ARMMikael Pettersson1-0/+1
sys_accept4() was added in kernel 2.6.28, but ARM was not updated to include it. The number and types of parameters is such that no ARM-specific processing is needed, so wiring up sys_accept4() just requires defining __NR_accept4 and adding a direct call in the syscall entry table. Tested with an EABI 2.6.35 kernel and Ulrich Drepper's original accept4() test program, modified to define __NR_accept4 for ARM. Using the updated unistd.h also eliminates a warning then building glibc (2.10.2 and newer) about accept4() being unimplemented.

2009-10-12net: Introduce recvmmsg socket syscallArnaldo Carvalho de Melo1-0/+1
Meaning receive multiple messages, reducing the number of syscalls and net stack entry/exit operations. Next patches will introduce mechanisms where protocols that want to optimize this operation will provide an unlocked_recvmsg operation. This takes into account comments made by: . Paul Moore: sock_recvmsg is called only for the first datagram, sock_recvmsg_nosec is used for the rest. . Caitlin Bestler: recvmmsg now has a struct timespec timeout, that works in the same fashion as the ppoll one. If the underlying protocol returns a datagram with MSG_OOB set, this will make recvmmsg return right away with as many datagrams (+ the OOB one) it has received so far. . Rémi Denis-Courmont & Steven Whitehouse: If we receive N < vlen datagrams and then recvmsg returns an error, recvmmsg will return the successfully received datagrams, store the error and return it in the next call. This paves the way for a subsequent optimization, sk_prot->unlocked_recvmsg, where we will be able to acquire the lock only at batch start and end, not at every underlying recvmsg call.

2009-09-21perf: Do the big rename: Performance Counters -> Performance EventsIngo Molnar1-1/+1
Bye-bye Performance Counters, welcome Performance Events! In the past few months the perfcounters subsystem has grown out its initial role of counting hardware events, and has become (and is becoming) a much broader generic event enumeration, reporting, logging, monitoring, analysis facility. Naming its core object 'perf_counter' and naming the subsystem 'perfcounters' has become more and more of a misnomer. With pending code like hw-breakpoints support the 'counter' name is less and less appropriate. All in one, we've decided to rename the subsystem to 'performance events' and to propagate this rename through all fields, variables and API names. (in an ABI compatible fashion) The word 'event' is also a bit shorter than 'counter' - which makes it slightly more convenient to write/handle as well. Thanks goes to Stephane Eranian who first observed this misnomer and suggested a rename. User-space tooling and ABI compatibility is not affected - this patch should be function-invariant. (Also, defconfigs were not touched to keep the size down.) This patch has been generated via the following script: FILES=$(find * -type f | grep -vE 'oprofile|[^K]config') sed -i \ -e 's/PERF_EVENT_/PERF_RECORD_/g' \ -e 's/PERF_COUNTER/PERF_EVENT/g' \ -e 's/perf_counter/perf_event/g' \ -e 's/nb_counters/nb_events/g' \ -e 's/swcounter/swevent/g' \ -e 's/tpcounter_event/tp_event/g' \ $FILES for N in $(find . -name perf_counter.[ch]); do M=$(echo $N | sed 's/perf_counter/perf_event/g') mv $N $M done FILES=$(find . -name perf_event.*) sed -i \ -e 's/COUNTER_MASK/REG_MASK/g' \ -e 's/COUNTER/EVENT/g' \ -e 's/\<event\>/event_id/g' \ -e 's/counter/event/g' \ -e 's/Counter/Event/g' \ $FILES ... to keep it as correct as possible. This script can also be used by anyone who has pending perfcounters patches - it converts a Linux kernel tree over to the new naming. We tried to time this change to the point in time where the amount of pending patches is the smallest: the end of the merge window. Namespace clashes were fixed up in a preparatory patch - and some stylistic fallout will be fixed up in a subsequent patch. ( NOTE: 'counters' are still the proper terminology when we deal with hardware registers - and these sed scripts are a bit over-eager in renaming them. I've undone some of that, but in case there's something left where 'counter' would be better than 'event' we can undo that on an individual basis instead of touching an otherwise nicely automated patch. ) Suggested-by: Stephane Eranian <eranian@google.com> Acked-by: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Acked-by: Paul Mackerras <paulus@samba.org> Reviewed-by: Arjan van de Ven <arjan@linux.intel.com> Cc: Mike Galbraith <efault@gmx.de> Cc: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com> Cc: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@gmail.com> Cc: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org> Cc: Benjamin Herrenschmidt <benh@kernel.crashing.org> Cc: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com> Cc: Kyle McMartin <kyle@mcmartin.ca> Cc: Martin Schwidefsky <schwidefsky@de.ibm.com> Cc: "David S.

2009-08-15ARM: 5677/1: ARM support for TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK/pselect6/ppoll/epoll_pwaitMikael Pettersson1-5/+5
This patch adds support for TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK to ARM's signal handling, which allows to hook up the pselect6, ppoll, and epoll_pwait syscalls on ARM. Tested here with eabi userspace and a test program with a deliberate race between a child's exit and the parent's sigprocmask/select sequence. Using sys_pselect6() instead of sigprocmask/select reliably prevents the race. The other arch's support for TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK has evolved over time: In 2.6.16: - add TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK which parallels TIF_SIGPENDING - test both when checking for pending signal [changed later] - reimplement sys_sigsuspend() to use current->saved_sigmask, TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK [changed later], and -ERESTARTNOHAND; ditto for sys_rt_sigsuspend(), but drop private code and use common code via __ARCH_WANT_SYS_RT_SIGSUSPEND; - there are now no "extra" calls to do_signal() so its oldset parameter is always &current->blocked so need not be passed, also its return value is changed to void - change handle_signal() to return 0/-errno - change do_signal() to honor TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK: + get oldset from current->saved_sigmask if TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK is set + if handle_signal() was successful then clear TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK + if no signal was delivered and TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK is set then clear it and restore the sigmask - hook up sys_pselect6() and sys_ppoll() In 2.6.19: - hook up sys_epoll_pwait() In 2.6.26: - allow archs to override how TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK is implemented; default set_restore_sigmask() sets both TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK and TIF_SIGPENDING; archs need now just test TIF_SIGPENDING again when checking for pending signal work; some archs now implement TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK as a secondary/non-atomic thread flag bit - call set_restore_sigmask() in sys_sigsuspend() instead of setting TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK In 2.6.29-rc: - kill sys_pselect7() which no arch wanted So for 2.6.31-rc6/ARM this patch does the following: - Add TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK. Use the generic set_restore_sigmask() which sets both TIF_SIGPENDING and TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK, so TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK need not claim one of the scarce low thread flags, and existing TIF_SIGPENDING and _TIF_WORK_MASK tests need not be extended for TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK. - sys_sigsuspend() is reimplemented to use current->saved_sigmask and set_restore_sigmask(), making it identical to most other archs - The private code for sys_rt_sigsuspend() is removed, instead generic code supplies it via __ARCH_WANT_SYS_RT_SIGSUSPEND. - sys_sigsuspend() and sys_rt_sigsuspend() no longer need a pt_regs parameter, so their assembly code wrappers are removed. - handle_signal() is changed to return 0 on success or -errno. - The oldset parameter to do_signal() is now redundant and removed, and the return value is now also redundant and changed to void. - do_signal() is changed to honor TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK: + get oldset from current->saved_sigmask if TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK is set + if handle_signal() was successful then clear TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK + if no signal was delivered and TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK is set then clear it and restore the sigmask - Hook up sys_pselect6, sys_ppoll, and sys_epoll_pwait.

2008-02-05timerfd: new timerfd APIDavide Libenzi1-1/+1
This is the new timerfd API as it is implemented by the following patch: int timerfd_create(int clockid, int flags); int timerfd_settime(int ufd, int flags, const struct itimerspec *utmr, struct itimerspec *otmr); int timerfd_gettime(int ufd, struct itimerspec *otmr); The timerfd_create() API creates an un-programmed timerfd fd. The "clockid" parameter can be either CLOCK_MONOTONIC or CLOCK_REALTIME. The timerfd_settime() API give new settings by the timerfd fd, by optionally retrieving the previous expiration time (in case the "otmr" parameter is not NULL). The time value specified in "utmr" is absolute, if the TFD_TIMER_ABSTIME bit is set in the "flags" parameter. Otherwise it's a relative time. The timerfd_gettime() API returns the next expiration time of the timer, or {0, 0} if the timerfd has not been set yet. Like the previous timerfd API implementation, read(2) and poll(2) are supported (with the same interface). Here's a simple test program I used to exercise the new timerfd APIs: http://www.xmailserver.org/timerfd-test2.c [akpm@linux-foundation.org: coding-style cleanups] [akpm@linux-foundation.org: fix ia64 build] [akpm@linux-foundation.org: fix m68k build] [akpm@linux-foundation.org: fix mips build] [akpm@linux-foundation.org: fix alpha, arm, blackfin, cris, m68k, s390, sparc and sparc64 builds] [heiko.carstens@de.ibm.com: fix s390] [akpm@linux-foundation.org: fix powerpc build] [akpm@linux-foundation.org: fix sparc64 more] Signed-off-by: Davide Libenzi <davidel@xmailserver.org> Cc: Michael Kerrisk <mtk-manpages@gmx.net> Cc: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de> Cc: Davide Libenzi <davidel@xmailserver.org> Cc: Michael Kerrisk <mtk-manpages@gmx.net> Cc: Martin Schwidefsky <schwidefsky@de.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Heiko Carstens <heiko.carstens@de.ibm.com> Cc: Michael Kerrisk <mtk.manpages@gmail.com> Cc: Davide Libenzi <davidel@xmailserver.org> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

2007-06-28Introduce fixed sys_sync_file_range2() syscall, implement on PowerPC and ARMDavid Woodhouse1-1/+1
Not all the world is an i386. Many architectures need 64-bit arguments to be aligned in suitable pairs of registers, and the original sys_sync_file_range(int, loff_t, loff_t, int) was therefore wasting an argument register for padding after the first integer. Since we don't normally have more than 6 arguments for system calls, that left no room for the final argument on some architectures. Fix this by introducing sys_sync_file_range2(int, int, loff_t, loff_t) which all fits nicely. In fact, ARM already had that, but called it sys_arm_sync_file_range. Move it to fs/sync.c and rename it, then implement the needed compatibility routine. And stop the missing syscall check from bitching about the absence of sys_sync_file_range() if we've implemented sys_sync_file_range2() instead. Tested on PPC32 and with 32-bit and 64-bit userspace on PPC64.

Patch from Nicolas Pitre struct sockaddr_un loses its padding with EABI. Since the size of the structure is used as a validation test in unix_mkname(), we need to change the length argument to 110 whenever it is 112.

2006-01-19[ARM] safer handling of syscall table paddingAl Viro1-332/+329
ARM entry-common.S needs to know syscall table size; in itself that would not be a problem, but there's an additional constraint - some of the instructions using it want a constant that would be a multiple of 4. So we have to pad syscall table with sys_ni_syscall and that's where the trouble begins. .rept pseudo-op wants a constant expression for number of repetitions and subtraction of two labels (before and after syscall table) doesn't always get simplified to constant early enough for .rept. If labels end up in different frags, we lose. And while the frag size is large enough (slightly below 4Kb), the syscall table is about 1/3 of that. We used to get away with that, but the recent changes had been enough to trigger the breakage. Proper fix is simple: have a macro (CALL(x)) to populate the table instead of using explicit .long x and the first time we include calls.S have it defined to .equ NR_syscalls,NR_syscalls+1. Then we can find the proper amount of padding on the first inclusion simply by looking at NR_syscalls at that time. And that will be constant, no matter what. Moreover, the same trick kills the need of having an estimate of padded NR_syscalls - it will be calculated for free at the same time.

A second syscall table is created to include legacy ABI syscalls that need an ABI compat wrapper. Signed-off-by: Nicolas Pitre <nico@cam.org> Signed-off-by: Russell King <rmk+kernel@arm.linux.org.uk>
2006-01-14[ARM] 3108/2: old ABI compat: statfs64 and fstatfs64Nicolas Pitre1-2/+2
Patch from Nicolas Pitre struct statfs64 has extra padding with EABI growing its size from 84 to 88. This struct is now __attribute__((packed,aligned(4))) with a small assembly wrapper to force the sz argument to 84 if it is 88 to avoid copying the extra padding over user space memory unexpecting it.

2005-12-17[ARM] Fix sys_sendto and sys_recvfrom 6-arg syscallsRussell King1-4/+4
Rather than providing more wrappers for 6-arg syscalls, arrange for them to be supported as standard. This just means that we always store the 6th argument on the stack, rather than in the wrappers. This means we eliminate the wrappers for: * sys_futex * sys_arm_fadvise64_64 * sys_mbind * sys_ipc Signed-off-by: Russell King <rmk+kernel@arm.linux.org.uk>

2005-09-01[ARM] 2865/2: fix fadvise64_64 syscall argument passingNicolas Pitre1-1/+1
Patch from Nicolas Pitre The prototype for sys_fadvise64_64() is: long sys_fadvise64_64(int fd, loff_t offset, loff_t len, int advice) The argument list is therefore as follows on legacy ABI: fd: type int (r0) offset: type long long (r1-r2) len: type long long (r3-sp[0]) advice: type int (sp[4]) With EABI this becomes: fd: type int (r0) offset: type long long (r2-r3) len: type long long (sp[0]-sp[4]) advice: type int (sp[8]) Not only do we have ABI differences here, but the EABI version requires one additional word on the syscall stack. To avoid the ABI mismatch and the extra stack space required with EABI this syscall is now defined with a different argument ordering on ARM as follows: long sys_arm_fadvise64_64(int fd, int advice, loff_t offset, loff_t len) This gives us the following ABI independent argument distribution: fd: type int (r0) advice: type int (r1) offset: type long long (r2-r3) len: type long long (sp[0]-sp[4]) Now, since the syscall entry code takes care of 5 registers only by default including the store of r4 to the stack, we need a wrapper to store r5 to the stack as well. Because that wrapper was missing and was always required this means that sys_fadvise64_64 never worked on ARM and therefore we can safely reuse its syscall number for our new sys_arm_fadvise64_64 interface.

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!
