2011-05-18configfs: Fix race between configfs_readdir() and configfs_d_iput()Joel Becker1-5/+28
configfs_readdir() will use the existing inode numbers of inodes in the dcache, but it makes them up for attribute files that aren't currently instantiated. There is a race where a closing attribute file can be tearing down at the same time as configfs_readdir() is trying to get its inode number. We want to get the inode number of open attribute files, because they should match while instantiated. We can't lock down the transition where dentry->d_inode is set to NULL, so we just check for NULL there. We can, however, ensure that an inode we find isn't iput() in configfs_d_iput() until after we've accessed it. Signed-off-by: Joel Becker <jlbec@evilplan.org>
2011-05-18configfs: Don't try to d_delete() negative dentries.Joel Becker1-2/+4
When configfs is faking mkdir() on its subsystem or default group objects, it starts by adding a negative dentry. It then tries to instantiate the group. If that should fail, it must clean up after itself. I was using d_delete() here, but configfs_attach_group() promises to return an empty dentry on error. d_delete() explodes with the entry dentry. Let's try d_drop() instead. The unhashing is what we want for our dentry. Signed-off-by: Joel Becker <jlbec@evilplan.org>

However, how that the lru lock is an innermost one, we never hold it at any caller, so the lock cost can now be avoided.

2010-05-15Fix the regression created by "set S_DEAD on unlink()..." commitAl Viro1-0/+4
1) i_flags simply doesn't work for mount/unlink race prevention; we may have many links to file and rm on one of those obviously shouldn't prevent bind on top of another later on. To fix it right way we need to mark _dentry_ as unsuitable for mounting upon; new flag (DCACHE_CANT_MOUNT) is protected by d_flags and i_mutex on the inode in question. Set it (with dont_mount(dentry)) in unlink/rmdir/etc., check (with cant_mount(dentry)) in places in namespace.c that used to check for S_DEAD. Setting S_DEAD is still needed in places where we used to set it (for directories getting killed), since we rely on it for readdir/rmdir race prevention. 2) rename()/mount() protection has another bogosity - we unhash the target before we'd checked that it's not a mountpoint. Fixed. 3) ancient bogosity in pivot_root() - we locked i_mutex on the right directory, but checked S_DEAD on the different (and wrong) one. Noticed and fixed.

2010-03-30include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking ↵Tejun Heo3-0/+3
implicit slab.h inclusion from percpu.h percpu.h is included by sched.h and module.h and thus ends up being included when building most .c files. percpu.h includes slab.h which in turn includes gfp.h making everything defined by the two files universally available and complicating inclusion dependencies. percpu.h -> slab.h dependency is about to be removed. Prepare for this change by updating users of gfp and slab facilities include those headers directly instead of assuming availability. As this conversion needs to touch large number of source files, the following script is used as the basis of conversion. http://userweb.kernel.org/~tj/misc/slabh-sweep.py The script does the followings. * Scan files for gfp and slab usages and update includes such that only the necessary includes are there. ie. if only gfp is used, gfp.h, if slab is used, slab.h. * When the script inserts a new include, it looks at the include blocks and try to put the new include such that its order conforms to its surrounding. It's put in the include block which contains core kernel includes, in the same order that the rest are ordered - alphabetical, Christmas tree, rev-Xmas-tree or at the end if there doesn't seem to be any matching order. * If the script can't find a place to put a new include (mostly because the file doesn't have fitting include block), it prints out an error message indicating which .h file needs to be added to the file. The conversion was done in the following steps. 1. The initial automatic conversion of all .c files updated slightly over 4000 files, deleting around 700 includes and adding ~480 gfp.h and ~3000 slab.h inclusions. The script emitted errors for ~400 files. 2. Each error was manually checked. Some didn't need the inclusion, some needed manual addition while adding it to implementation .h or embedding .c file was more appropriate for others. This step added inclusions to around 150 files. 3. The script was run again and the output was compared to the edits from #2 to make sure no file was left behind. 4. Several build tests were done and a couple of problems were fixed. e.g. lib/decompress_*.c used malloc/free() wrappers around slab APIs requiring slab.h to be added manually. 5. The script was run on all .h files but without automatically editing them as sprinkling gfp.h and slab.h inclusions around .h files could easily lead to inclusion dependency hell. Most gfp.h inclusion directives were ignored as stuff from gfp.h was usually wildly available and often used in preprocessor macros. Each slab.h inclusion directive was examined and added manually as necessary. 6. percpu.h was updated not to include slab.h. 7. Build test were done on the following configurations and failures were fixed. CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL was turned off for all tests (as my distributed build env didn't work with gcov compiles) and a few more options had to be turned off depending on archs to make things build (like ipr on powerpc/64 which failed due to missing writeq). * x86 and x86_64 UP and SMP allmodconfig and a custom test config. * powerpc and powerpc64 SMP allmodconfig * sparc and sparc64 SMP allmodconfig * ia64 SMP allmodconfig * s390 SMP allmodconfig * alpha SMP allmodconfig * um on x86_64 SMP allmodconfig 8. percpu.h modifications were reverted so that it could be applied as a separate patch and serve as bisection point. Given the fact that I had only a couple of failures from tests on step 6, I'm fairly confident about the coverage of this conversion patch. If there is a breakage, it's likely to be something in one of the arch headers which should be easily discoverable easily on most builds of the specific arch.

2009-04-30configfs: Rework configfs_depend_item() locking and make lockdep happyLouis Rilling1-59/+47
configfs_depend_item() recursively locks all inodes mutex from configfs root to the target item, which makes lockdep unhappy. The purpose of this recursive locking is to ensure that the item tree can be safely parsed and that the target item, if found, is not about to leave. This patch reworks configfs_depend_item() locking using configfs_dirent_lock. Since configfs_dirent_lock protects all changes to the configfs_dirent tree, and protects tagging of items to be removed, this lock can be used instead of the inodes mutex lock chain. This needs that the check for dependents be done atomically with CONFIGFS_USET_DROPPING tagging. Now lockdep looks happy with configfs.

2009-04-30configfs: Silence lockdep on mkdir() and rmdir()Louis Rilling3-0/+131
When attaching default groups (subdirs) of a new group (in mkdir() or in configfs_register()), configfs recursively takes inode's mutexes along the path from the parent of the new group to the default subdirs. This is needed to ensure that the VFS will not race with operations on these sub-dirs. This is safe for the following reasons: - the VFS allows one to lock first an inode and second one of its children (The lock subclasses for this pattern are respectively I_MUTEX_PARENT and I_MUTEX_CHILD); - from this rule any inode path can be recursively locked in descending order as long as it stays under a single mountpoint and does not follow symlinks. Unfortunately lockdep does not know (yet?) how to handle such recursion. I've tried to use Peter Zijlstra's lock_set_subclass() helper to upgrade i_mutexes from I_MUTEX_CHILD to I_MUTEX_PARENT when we know that we might recursively lock some of their descendant, but this usage does not seem to fit the purpose of lock_set_subclass() because it leads to several i_mutex locked with subclass I_MUTEX_PARENT by the same task. >From inside configfs it is not possible to serialize those recursive locking with a top-level one, because mkdir() and rmdir() are already called with inodes locked by the VFS. So using some mutex_lock_nest_lock() is not an option. I am proposing two solutions: 1) one that wraps recursive mutex_lock()s with lockdep_off()/lockdep_on(). 2) (as suggested earlier by Peter Zijlstra) one that puts the i_mutexes recursively locked in different classes based on their depth from the top-level config_group created. This induces an arbitrary limit (MAX_LOCK_DEPTH - 2 == 46) on the nesting of configfs default groups whenever lockdep is activated but this limit looks reasonably high. Unfortunately, this also isolates VFS operations on configfs default groups from the others and thus lowers the chances to detect locking issues. Nobody likes solution 1), which I can understand. This patch implements solution 2). However lockdep is still not happy with configfs_depend_item(). Next patch reworks the locking of configfs_depend_item() and finally makes lockdep happy. [ Note: This hides a few locking interactions with the VFS from lockdep. That was my big concern, because we like lockdep's protection. However, the current state always dumps a spurious warning. The locking is correct, so I tell people to ignore the warning and that we'll keep our eyes on the locking to make sure it stays correct. With this patch, we eliminate the warning. We do lose some of the lockdep protections, but this only means that we still have to keep our eyes on the locking.

2008-07-31[PATCH] configfs: Pin configfs subsystems separately from new config_items.Joel Becker1-9/+33
configfs_mkdir() creates a new item by calling its parent's ->make_item/group() functions. Once that object is created, configfs_mkdir() calls try_module_get() on the new item's module. If it succeeds, the module owning the new item cannot be unloaded, and configfs is safe to reference the item. If the item and the subsystem it belongs to are part of the same module, the subsystem is also pinned. This is the common case. However, if the subsystem is made up of multiple modules, this may not pin the subsystem. Thus, it would be possible to unload the toplevel subsystem module while there is still a child item. Thus, we now try_module_get() the subsystem's module. This only really affects children of the toplevel subsystem group. Deeper children already have their parents pinned.
