2012-04-02logfs: destroy the reserved inodes while unmountingPrasad Joshi1-1/+1
We were assuming that the evict_inode() would never be called on reserved inodes. However, (after the commit 8e22c1a4e logfs: get rid of magical inodes) while unmounting the file system, in put_super, we call iput() on all of the reserved inodes. The following simple test used to cause a kernel panic on LogFS: 1. Mount a LogFS file system on /mnt 2. Create a file $ touch /mnt/a 3. Try to unmount the FS $ umount /mnt The simple fix would be to drop the assumption and properly destroy the reserved inodes. Signed-off-by: Prasad Joshi <prasadjoshi.linux@gmail.com>

2012-01-28logfs: update page reference count for pined pagesPrasad Joshi1-8/+29
LogFS sets PG_private flag to indicate a pined page. We assumed that marking a page as private is enough to ensure its existence. But instead it is necessary to hold a reference count to the page. The change resolves the following BUG BUG: Bad page state in process flush-253:16 pfn:6a6d0 page flags: 0x100000000000808(uptodate|private) Suggested-and-Acked-by: Joern Engel <joern@logfs.org> Signed-off-by: Prasad Joshi <prasadjoshi.linux@gmail.com>

2010-04-15[LogFS] Prevent mempool_destroy NULL pointer dereferenceJoern Engel1-1/+1
It would probably be better to just accept NULL pointers in mempool_destroy(). But for the current -rc series let's keep things simple. This patch was lost in the cracks for a while. Kevin Cernekee <cernekee@gmail.com> had to rediscover the problem and send a similar patch because of it. :( Signed-off-by: Joern Engel <joern@logfs.org>

2010-03-30include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking ↵Tejun Heo1-0/+1
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.

2010-03-28Simplify and fix pad_wbufJoern Engel1-22/+30
A comment in the old code read: /* The math in this function can surely use some love */ And indeed it did. In the case that area->a_used_bytes is exactly 4096 bytes below segment size it fell apart. pad_wbuf is now split into two helpers that are significantly less complicated.

2010-03-04[LogFS] Only write journal if dirtyJoern Engel1-2/+5
This prevents unnecessary journal writes. More importantly it prevents an oops due to a journal write on failed mount.
2010-03-04[LogFS] Fix bdev erasesJoern Engel1-3/+3
Erases for block devices were always just emulated by writing 0xff. Some time back the write was removed and only the page cache was changed to 0xff. Superficialy a good idea with two problems: 1. Touching the page cache isn't necessary either. 2. However, writing out 0xff _is_ necessary for the journal. As the journal is scanned linearly, an old non-overwritten commit entry can be used on next mount and cause havoc. This should fix both aspects.
