2012-01-05vfs: fix up ENOIOCTLCMD error handlingLinus Torvalds1-1/+1
We're doing some odd things there, which already messes up various users (see the net/socket.c code that this removes), and it was going to add yet more crud to the block layer because of the incorrect error code translation. ENOIOCTLCMD is not an error return that should be returned to user mode from the "ioctl()" system call, but it should *not* be translated as EINVAL ("Invalid argument"). It should be translated as ENOTTY ("Inappropriate ioctl for device"). That EINVAL confusion has apparently so permeated some code that the block layer actually checks for it, which is sad. We continue to do so for now, but add a big comment about how wrong that is, and we should remove it entirely eventually. In the meantime, this tries to keep the changes localized to just the EINVAL -> ENOTTY fix, and removing code that makes it harder to do the right thing.

2011-02-02fs: make block fiemap mapping length at least blocksize longJosef Bacik1-0/+7
Some filesystems don't deal well with being asked to map less than blocksize blocks (GFS2 for example). Since we are always mapping at least blocksize sections anyway, just make sure len is at least as big as a blocksize so we don't trip up any filesystems.

There was concern that FITRIM ioctl is not common enough to be included in core vfs ioctl, as Christoph Hellwig pointed out there's no real point in dispatching this out to a separate vector instead of just through ->ioctl.

2010-10-27fs: Add FITRIM ioctlLukas Czerner1-0/+39
Adds an filesystem independent ioctl to allow implementation of file system batched discard support. I takes fstrim_range structure as an argument. fstrim_range is definec in the include/fs.h and its definition is as follows. struct fstrim_range { start; len; minlen; } start - first Byte to trim len - number of Bytes to trim from start minlen - minimum extent length to trim, free extents shorter than this number of Bytes will be ignored. This will be rounded up to fs block size. It is also possible to specify NULL as an argument. In this case the arguments will set itself as follows: start = 0; len = ULLONG_MAX; minlen = 0; So it will trim the whole file system at one run. After the FITRIM is done, the number of actually discarded Bytes is stored in fstrim_range.len to give the user better insight on how much storage space has been really released for wear-leveling.

2010-05-21Introduce freeze_super and thaw_super for the fsfreeze ioctlJosef Bacik1-13/+2
Currently the way we do freezing is by passing sb>s_bdev to freeze_bdev and then letting it do all the work. But freezing is more of an fs thing, and doesn't really have much to do with the bdev at all, all the work gets done with the super. In btrfs we do not populate s_bdev, since we can have multiple bdev's for one fs and setting s_bdev makes removing devices from a pool kind of tricky. This means that freezing a btrfs filesystem fails, which causes us to corrupt with things like tux-on-ice which use the fsfreeze mechanism. So instead of populating sb->s_bdev with a random bdev in our pool, I've broken the actual fs freezing stuff into freeze_super and thaw_super. These just take the super_block that we're freezing and does the appropriate work. It's basically just copy and pasted from freeze_bdev. I've then converted freeze_bdev over to use the new super helpers. I've tested this with ext4 and btrfs and verified everything continues to work the same as before. The only new gotcha is multiple calls to the fsfreeze ioctl will return EBUSY if the fs is already frozen. I thought this was a better solution than adding a freeze counter to the super_block, but if everybody hates this idea I'm open to suggestions.

2009-03-16Rationalize fasync return valuesJonathan Corbet1-1/+1
Most fasync implementations do something like: return fasync_helper(...); But fasync_helper() will return a positive value at times - a feature used in at least one place. Thus, a number of other drivers do: err = fasync_helper(...); if (err < 0) return err; return 0; In the interests of consistency and more concise code, it makes sense to map positive return values onto zero where ->fasync() is called.

2009-03-16Move FASYNC bit handling to f_op->fasync()Jonathan Corbet1-12/+1
Removing the BKL from FASYNC handling ran into the challenge of keeping the setting of the FASYNC bit in filp->f_flags atomic with regard to calls to the underlying fasync() function. Andi Kleen suggested moving the handling of that bit into fasync(); this patch does exactly that. As a result, we have a couple of internal API changes: fasync() must now manage the FASYNC bit, and it will be called without the BKL held. As it happens, every fasync() implementation in the kernel with one exception calls fasync_helper(). So, if we make fasync_helper() set the FASYNC bit, we can avoid making any changes to the other fasync() functions - as long as those functions, themselves, have proper locking. Most fasync() implementations do nothing but call fasync_helper() - which has its own lock - so they are easily verified as correct. The BKL had already been pushed down into the rest. The networking code has its own version of fasync_helper(), so that code has been augmented with explicit FASYNC bit handling.

2009-01-05GFS2: Support for FIEMAP ioctlSteven Whitehouse1-10/+34
This patch implements the FIEMAP ioctl for GFS2. We can use the generic code (aside from a lock order issue, solved as per Ted Tso's suggestion) for which I've introduced a new variant of the generic function. We also have one exception to deal with, namely stuffed files, so we do that "by hand", setting all the required flags. This has been tested with a modified (I could only find an old version) of Eric's test program, and appears to work correctly.

2008-10-03generic block based fiemap implementationJosef Bacik1-0/+118
Any block based fs (this patch includes ext3) just has to declare its own fiemap() function and then call this generic function with its own get_block_t. This works well for block based filesystems that will map multiple contiguous blocks at one time, but will work for filesystems that only map one block at a time, you will just end up with an "extent" for each block. One gotcha is this will not play nicely where there is hole+data after the EOF. This function will assume its hit the end of the data as soon as it hits a hole after the EOF, so if there is any data past that it will not pick that up. AFAIK no block based fs does this anyway, but its in the comments of the function anyway just in case.

2008-10-08vfs: vfs-level fiemap interfaceMark Fasheh1-0/+155
Basic vfs-level fiemap infrastructure, which sets up a new ->fiemap inode operation. Userspace can get extent information on a file via fiemap ioctl. As input, the fiemap ioctl takes a struct fiemap which includes an array of struct fiemap_extent (fm_extents). Size of the extent array is passed as fm_extent_count and number of extents returned will be written into fm_mapped_extents. Offset and length fields on the fiemap structure (fm_start, fm_length) describe a logical range which will be searched for extents. All extents returned will at least partially contain this range. The actual extent offsets and ranges returned will be unmodified from their offset and range on-disk. The fiemap ioctl returns '0' on success. On error, -1 is returned and errno is set. If errno is equal to EBADR, then fm_flags will contain those flags which were passed in which the kernel did not understand. On all other errors, the contents of fm_extents is undefined.
