2008-08-27block: move cmdfilter from gendisk to request_queueFUJITA Tomonori2-13/+13
cmd_filter works only for the block layer SG_IO with SCSI block devices. It breaks scsi/sg.c, bsg, and the block layer SG_IO with SCSI character devices (such as st). We hit a kernel crash with them. The problem is that cmd_filter code accesses to gendisk (having struct blk_scsi_cmd_filter) via inode->i_bdev->bd_disk. It works for only SCSI block device files. With character device files, inode->i_bdev leads you to struct cdev. inode->i_bdev->bd_disk->blk_scsi_cmd_filter isn't safe. SCSI ULDs don't expose gendisk; they keep it private. bsg needs to be independent on any protocols. We shouldn't change ULDs to expose their gendisk. This patch moves struct blk_scsi_cmd_filter from gendisk to request_queue, a common object, which eveyone can access to. The user interface doesn't change; users can change the filters via /sys/block/. gendisk has a pointer to request_queue so the cmd_filter code accesses to struct blk_scsi_cmd_filter.

2008-08-25x86: msr: fix bogus return values from rdmsr_safe/wrmsr_safeH. Peter Anvin1-8/+8
Impact: bogus error codes (+other?) on x86-64 The rdmsr_safe/wrmsr_safe routines have macros for the handling of the edx:eax arguments. Those macros take a variable number of assembly arguments. This is rather inherently incompatible with using %digit-style escapes in the inline assembly; replace those with %[name]-style escapes. This fixes miscompilation on x86-64, which at the very least caused bogus return values. It is possible that this could also corrupt the return value; I am not sure. Signed-off-by: H.

2008-08-25KVM: Use .fixup instead of .text.fixup on __kvm_handle_fault_on_rebootEduardo Habkost1-1/+1
vmlinux.lds expects the fixup code to be on a section named .fixup. The .text.fixup section is not mentioned on vmlinux.lds, and is included on the resulting vmlinux (just after .text) only because of ld heuristics on placing orphan sections. However, placing .text.fixup outside .text breaks the definition of _etext, making it exclude the .text.fixup contents. That makes .text.fixup be ignored by the kernel initialization code that needs to know about section locations, such as the code setting page protection bits.

2008-08-23x86 MCE: Fix CPU hotplug problem with multiple multicore AMD CPUsRafael J. Wysocki1-0/+1
During CPU hot-remove the sysfs directory created by threshold_create_bank(), defined in arch/x86/kernel/cpu/mcheck/mce_amd_64.c, has to be removed before its parent directory, created by mce_create_device(), defined in arch/x86/kernel/cpu/mcheck/mce_64.c . Moreover, when the CPU in question is hotplugged again, obviously the latter has to be created before the former. At present, the right ordering is not enforced, because all of these operations are carried out by CPU hotplug notifiers which are not appropriately ordered with respect to each other. This leads to serious problems on systems with two or more multicore AMD CPUs, among other things during suspend and hibernation. Fix the problem by placing threshold bank CPU hotplug callbacks in mce_cpu_callback(), so that they are invoked at the right places, if defined. Additionally, use kobject_del() to remove the sysfs directory associated with the kobject created by kobject_create_and_add() in threshold_create_bank(), to prevent the kernel from crashing during CPU hotplug operations on systems with two or more multicore AMD CPUs.

2008-08-22libata: Fix a large collection of DMA mode mismatchesAlan Cox1-0/+22
Dave Müller sent a diff for the pata_oldpiix that highlighted a problem where a lot of the ATA drivers assume dma_mode == 0 means "no DMA" while the core code uses 0xFF. This turns out to have other consequences such as code doing >= XFER_UDMA_0 also catching 0xFF as UDMAlots. Fortunately it doesn't generally affect set_dma_mode, although some drivers call back into their own set mode code from other points. Having been through the drivers I've added helpers for using_udma/using_mwdma dma_enabled so that people don't open code ranges that may change (eg if UDMA8 appears somewhere) Thanks to David for the initial bits [and added fix for pata_oldpiix from and signed-off-by Dave Mueller <dave.mueller@gmx.ch> -jg] Signed-off-by: Alan Cox <alan@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Jeff Garzik <jgarzik@redhat.com>
2008-08-22libata: restore SControl on detachTejun Heo1-0/+1
Save SControl during probing and restore it on detach. This prevents adjustments made by libata drivers to seep into the next driver which gets attached (be it a libata one or not). It's not clear whether SControl also needs to be restored on suspend. The next system to have control (ACPI or kexec'd kernel) would probably like to see the original SControl value but there's no guarantee that a link is gonna keep working after SControl is adjusted without a reset and adding a reset and modified recovery cycle soley for this is an overkill.

2008-08-21USB: Defer Set-Interface for suspended devicesAlan Stern1-0/+3
This patch (as1128) fixes one of the problems related to the new PM infrastructure. We are not allowed to register new child devices during the middle of a system sleep transition, but unbinding a USB driver causes the core to automatically install altsetting 0 and thereby create new endpoint pseudo-devices. The patch fixes this problem (and the related problem that installing altsetting 0 will fail if the device is suspended) by deferring the Set-Interface call until some later time when it is legal and can succeed. Possible later times are: when a new driver is being probed for the interface, and when the interface is being resumed.

2008-08-20mm: dirty page tracking race fixNick Piggin1-1/+1
There is a race with dirty page accounting where a page may not properly be accounted for. clear_page_dirty_for_io() calls page_mkclean; then TestClearPageDirty. page_mkclean walks the rmaps for that page, and for each one it cleans and write protects the pte if it was dirty. It uses page_check_address to find the pte. That function has a shortcut to avoid the ptl if the pte is not present. Unfortunately, the pte can be switched to not-present then back to present by other code while holding the page table lock -- this should not be a signal for page_mkclean to ignore that pte, because it may be dirty. For example, powerpc64's set_pte_at will clear a previously present pte before setting it to the desired value. There may also be other code in core mm or in arch which do similar things. The consequence of the bug is loss of data integrity due to msync, and loss of dirty page accounting accuracy. XIP's __xip_unmap could easily also be unreliable (depending on the exact XIP locking scheme), which can lead to data corruption. Fix this by having an option to always take ptl to check the pte in page_check_address. It's possible to retain this optimization for page_referenced and try_to_unmap.

2008-08-20fix setpriority(PRIO_PGRP) thread iterator breakageKen Chen1-0/+9
When user calls sys_setpriority(PRIO_PGRP ...) on a NPTL style multi-LWP process, only the task leader of the process is affected, all other sibling LWP threads didn't receive the setting. The problem was that the iterator used in sys_setpriority() only iteartes over one task for each process, ignoring all other sibling thread. Introduce a new macro do_each_pid_thread / while_each_pid_thread to walk each thread of a process. Convert 4 call sites in {set/get}priority and ioprio_{set/get}.

2008-08-20Reduce brokenness of CRIS headers_installDavid Woodhouse1-1/+0
I won't say 'fix', because they still look broken, although this will at least allow 'make ARCH=CRIS headers_install' to _complete_. For headers which are exported, we should probably choose between asm/arch-v10 and asm/arch-v32 by something that GCC defines -- we can't rely on a generated symlink. And we certainly can't export an arch/ directory which doesn't even exist. And the only thing that we seem to include from the arch/ directory is <asm/arch/ptrace.h> from <asm/ptrace.h> ... and that isn't exported in either arch-v10 or arch-v32 _anyway_.
