2008-09-13memstick: fix MSProHG 8-bit interface mode supportAlex Dubov1-48/+49
- 8-bit interface mode never worked properly. The only adapter I have which supports the 8b mode (the Jmicron) had some problems with its clock wiring and they discovered it only now. We also discovered that ProHG media is more sensitive to the ordering of initialization commands. - Make the driver fall back to highest supported mode instead of always falling back to serial. The driver will attempt the switch to 8b mode for any new MSPro card, but not all of them support it. Previously, these new cards ended up in serial mode, which is not the best idea (they work fine with 4b, after all). - Edit some macros for better conformance to Sony documentation Signed-off-by: Alex Dubov <oakad@yahoo.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2008-09-13mm: mark the correct zone as full when scanning zonelistsMel Gorman1-6/+6
The iterator for_each_zone_zonelist() uses a struct zoneref *z cursor when scanning zonelists to keep track of where in the zonelist it is. The zoneref that is returned corresponds to the the next zone that is to be scanned, not the current one. It was intended to be treated as an opaque list. When the page allocator is scanning a zonelist, it marks elements in the zonelist corresponding to zones that are temporarily full. As the zonelist is being updated, it uses the cursor here; if (NUMA_BUILD) zlc_mark_zone_full(zonelist, z); This is intended to prevent rescanning in the near future but the zoneref cursor does not correspond to the zone that has been found to be full. This is an easy misunderstanding to make so this patch corrects the problem by changing zoneref cursor to be the current zone being scanned instead of the next one.

2008-09-13[libata] LBA28/LBA48 off-by-one bug in ata.hTaisuke Yamada1-1/+1
I recently bought 3 HGST P7K500-series 500GB SATA drives and had trouble accessing the block right on the LBA28-LBA48 border. Here's how it fails (same for all 3 drives): # dd if=/dev/sdc bs=512 count=1 skip=268435455 > /dev/null dd: reading `/dev/sdc': Input/output error 0+0 records in 0+0 records out 0 bytes (0 B) copied, 0.288033 seconds, 0.0 kB/s # dmesg ata1.00: exception Emask 0x0 SAct 0x0 SErr 0x0 action 0x0 ata1.00: BMDMA stat 0x25 ata1.00: cmd c8/00:08:f8:ff:ff/00:00:00:00:00/ef tag 0 dma 4096 in res 51/04:08:f8:ff:ff/00:00:00:00:00/ef Emask 0x1 (device error) ata1.00: status: { DRDY ERR } ata1.00: error: { ABRT } ata1.00: configured for UDMA/33 ata1: EH complete ... After some investigations, it turned out this seems to be caused by misinterpretation of the ATA specification on LBA28 access. Following part is the code in question: === include/linux/ata.h === static inline int lba_28_ok(u64 block, u32 n_block) { /* check the ending block number */ return ((block + n_block - 1) < ((u64)1 << 28)) && (n_block <= 256); } HGST drive (sometimes) fails with LBA28 access of {block = 0xfffffff, n_block = 1}, and this behavior seems to be comformant. Other drives, including other HGST drives are not that strict, through. >From the ATA specification: (http://www.t13.org/Documents/UploadedDocuments/project/d1410r3b-ATA-ATAPI-6.pdf) 8.15.29 Word (61:60): Total number of user addressable sectors This field contains a value that is one greater than the total number of user addressable sectors (see 6.2). The maximum value that shall be placed in this field is 0FFFFFFFh. So the driver shouldn't use the value of 0xfffffff for LBA28 request as this exceeds maximum user addressable sector. The logical maximum value for LBA28 is 0xffffffe. The obvious fix is to cut "- 1" part, and the patch attached just do that. I've been using the patched kernel for about a month now, and the same fix is also floating on the net for some time. So I believe this fix works reliably. Just FYI, many Windows/Intel platform users also seems to be struck by this, and HGST has issued a note pointing to Intel ICH8/9 driver. "28-bit LBA command is being used to access LBAs 29-bits in length" http://www.hitachigst.com/hddt/knowtree.nsf/cffe836ed7c12018862565b000530c74/b531b8bce8745fb78825740f00580e23 Also, *BSDs seems to have similar fix included sometime around ~2004, through I have not checked out exact portion of the code.

But GCC promotes "remaining" to unsigned in the test against sizeof(*nla) above. Therefore the test succeeds, and the nla_for_each_attr() may access memory outside the received buffer. A short example illustrating this point is here: #include <stdio.h> main(void) { printf("%d\n", -1 >= sizeof(int)); } ...which prints "1". This patch adds a cast in front of the sizeof so that GCC will make a signed comparison and fix the illegal memory dereference. With the patch applied, there is no kmemcheck report.

It was introduced by "vsprintf: add support for '%pS' and '%pF' pointer formats" in commit 0fe1ef24f7bd0020f29ffe287dfdb9ead33ca0b2. However, the current way its coded doesn't work on parisc64. For two reasons: 1) parisc isn't in the #ifdef and 2) parisc has a different format for function descriptors Make dereference_function_descriptor() more accommodating by allowing architecture overrides. I put the three overrides (for parisc64, ppc64 and ia64) in arch/kernel/module.c because that's where the kernel internal linker which knows how to deal with function descriptors sits.

2008-09-09[Bluetooth] Reject L2CAP connections on an insecure ACL linkMarcel Holtmann1-0/+1
The Security Mode 4 of the Bluetooth 2.1 specification has strict authentication and encryption requirements. It is the initiators job to create a secure ACL link. However in case of malicious devices, the acceptor has to make sure that the ACL is encrypted before allowing any kind of L2CAP connection. The only exception here is the PSM 1 for the service discovery protocol, because that is allowed to run on an insecure ACL link. Previously it was enough to reject a L2CAP connection during the connection setup phase, but with Bluetooth 2.1 it is forbidden to do any L2CAP protocol exchange on an insecure link (except SDP). The new hci_conn_check_link_mode() function can be used to check the integrity of an ACL link. This functions also takes care of the cases where Security Mode 4 is disabled or one of the devices is based on an older specification. Signed-off-by: Marcel Holtmann <marcel@holtmann.org>
2008-09-09[Bluetooth] Enforce correct authentication requirementsMarcel Holtmann1-1/+1
With the introduction of Security Mode 4 and Simple Pairing from the Bluetooth 2.1 specification it became mandatory that the initiator requires authentication and encryption before any L2CAP channel can be established. The only exception here is PSM 1 for the service discovery protocol (SDP). It is meant to be used without any encryption since it contains only public information. This is how Bluetooth 2.0 and before handle connections on PSM 1. For Bluetooth 2.1 devices the pairing procedure differentiates between no bonding, general bonding and dedicated bonding. The L2CAP layer wrongly uses always general bonding when creating new connections, but it should not do this for SDP connections. In this case the authentication requirement should be no bonding and the just-works model should be used, but in case of non-SDP connection it is required to use general bonding. If the new connection requires man-in-the-middle (MITM) protection, it also first wrongly creates an unauthenticated link key and then later on requests an upgrade to an authenticated link key to provide full MITM protection. With Simple Pairing the link key generation is an expensive operation (compared to Bluetooth 2.0 and before) and doing this twice during a connection setup causes a noticeable delay when establishing a new connection. This should be avoided to not regress from the expected Bluetooth 2.0 connection times. The authentication requirements are known up-front and so enforce them. To fulfill these requirements the hci_connect() function has been extended with an authentication requirement parameter that will be stored inside the connection information and can be retrieved by userspace at any time. This allows the correct IO capabilities exchange and results in the expected behavior. Signed-off-by: Marcel Holtmann <marcel@holtmann.org>

The timewait sockets life cycle is not tied with the network namespace, that means the timewait sockets stay alive while the network namespace dies. The timewait sockets are for avoiding to receive a duplicate packet from the network, if the network namespace is freed, the network stack is removed, so no chance to receive any packets from the outside world. Furthermore, having a pending destruction timer on these sockets with a network namespace freed is not safe and will lead to an oops if the timer callback which try to access data belonging to the namespace like for example in: inet_twdr_do_twkill_work -> NET_INC_STATS_BH(twsk_net(tw), LINUX_MIB_TIMEWAITED); Purging the timewait sockets at the network namespace destruction will: 1) speed up memory freeing for the namespace 2) fix kernel panic on asynchronous timewait destruction Signed-off-by: Daniel Lezcano <dlezcano@fr.ibm.com> Acked-by: Denis V.

2008-09-06sched: arch_reinit_sched_domains() must destroy domains to force rebuildMax Krasnyansky1-1/+1
What I realized recently is that calling rebuild_sched_domains() in arch_reinit_sched_domains() by itself is not enough when cpusets are enabled. partition_sched_domains() code is trying to avoid unnecessary domain rebuilds and will not actually rebuild anything if new domain masks match the old ones. What this means is that doing echo 1 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/sched_mc_power_savings on a system with cpusets enabled will not take affect untill something changes in the cpuset setup (ie new sets created or deleted). This patch fixes restore correct behaviour where domains must be rebuilt in order to enable MC powersaving flags. Test on quad-core Core2 box with both CONFIG_CPUSETS and !CONFIG_CPUSETS. Also tested on dual-core Core2 laptop. Lockdep is happy and things are working as expected.

2008-09-05[MIPS] Fix WARNING: at kernel/smp.c:290Thomas Bogendoerfer1-0/+1
trap_init issues flush_icache_range(), which uses ipi functions to get icache flushing done on all cpus. But this is done before interrupts are enabled and caused WARN_ON messages. This changeset introduces a new local_flush_icache_range() and uses it before interrupts (and additional CPUs) are enabled to avoid this problem.

2008-09-05sched: fix process time monotonicityBalbir Singh1-0/+4
Spencer reported a problem where utime and stime were going negative despite the fixes in commit b27f03d4bdc145a09fb7b0c0e004b29f1ee555fa. The suspected reason for the problem is that signal_struct maintains it's own utime and stime (of exited tasks), these are not updated using the new task_utime() routine, hence sig->utime can go backwards and cause the same problem to occur (sig->utime, adds tsk->utime and not task_utime()). This patch fixes the problem TODO: using max(task->prev_utime, derived utime) works for now, but a more generic solution is to implement cputime_max() and use the cputime_gt() function for comparison.

2008-09-05clockevents: prevent clockevent event_handler ending up handler_noopVenkatesh Pallipadi1-0/+2
There is a ordering related problem with clockevents code, due to which clockevents_register_device() called after tickless/highres switch will not work. The new clockevent ends up with clockevents_handle_noop as event handler, resulting in no timer activity. The problematic path seems to be * old device already has hrtimer_interrupt as the event_handler * new clockevent device registers with a higher rating * tick_check_new_device() is called * clockevents_exchange_device() gets called * old->event_handler is set to clockevents_handle_noop * tick_setup_device() is called for the new device * which sets new->event_handler using the old->event_handler which is noop. Change the ordering so that new device inherits the proper handler. This does not have any issue in normal case as most likely all the clockevent devices are setup before the highres switch. But, can potentially be affecting some corner case where HPET force detect happens after the highres switch. This was a problem with HPET in MSI mode code that we have been experimenting with.

Nothing in linux/pim.h should be exported to userspace. This should fix the XORP build failure reported by Jose Calhariz, the debain package maintainer. Nothing originally in linux/mroute.h was exported to userspace ever, but some of this stuff started to be when it was moved into this new linux/pim.h, and that was wrong. If we didn't provide these definitions for 10 years we can reasonably expect that applications defined this stuff locally or used GLIBC headers providing the protocol definitions. And as such the only result of this can be conflict and userland build breakage. Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2008-08-29[SCSI] fix check of PQ and PDT bits for WLUNsJames Bottomley1-0/+14
For IBM z series certain LUNs can no longer be accessed. This is because kernel version 2.6.19 a check was introduced not to create a generic SCSI device for devices that return PQ=1 and PDT=0x1f. For WLUNs (see SAM-3, p. 41ff) generic SCSI devices should be created unconditionally without looking at the PQ bit, so add a check for WLUNs in with this test.
