2009-11-30mac80211: fix spurious delBA handlingJohannes Berg1-0/+6
Lennert Buytenhek noticed that delBA handling in mac80211 was broken and has remotely triggerable problems, some of which are due to some code shuffling I did that ended up changing the order in which things were done -- this was commit d75636ef9c1af224f1097941879d5a8db7cd04e5 Author: Johannes Berg <johannes@sipsolutions.net> Date: Tue Feb 10 21:25:53 2009 +0100 mac80211: RX aggregation: clean up stop session and other parts were already present in the original commit d92684e66091c0f0101819619b315b4bb8b5bcc5 Author: Ron Rindjunsky <ron.rindjunsky@intel.com> Date: Mon Jan 28 14:07:22 2008 +0200 mac80211: A-MPDU Tx add delBA from recipient support The first problem is that I moved a BUG_ON before various checks -- thereby making it possible to hit. As the comment indicates, the BUG_ON can be removed since the ampdu_action callback must already exist when the state is != IDLE. The second problem isn't easily exploitable but there's a race condition due to unconditionally setting the state to OPERATIONAL when a delBA frame is received, even when no aggregation session was ever initiated. All the drivers accept stopping the session even then, but that opens a race window where crashes could happen before the driver accepts it. Right now, a WARN_ON may happen with non-HT drivers, while the race opens only for HT drivers. For this case, there are two things necessary to fix it: 1) don't process spurious delBA frames, and be more careful about the session state; don't drop the lock 2) HT drivers need to be prepared to handle a session stop even before the session was really started -- this is true for all drivers (that support aggregation) but iwlwifi which can be fixed easily. The other HT drivers (ath9k and ar9170) are behaving properly already.

2009-11-29sctp: on T3_RTX retransmit all the in-flight chunksAndrei Pelinescu-Onciul1-1/+0
When retransmitting due to T3 timeout, retransmit all the in-flight chunks for the corresponding transport/path, including chunks sent less then 1 rto ago. This is the correct behaviour according to rfc4960 section 6.3.3 E3 and "Note: Any DATA chunks that were sent to the address for which the T3-rtx timer expired but did not fit in one MTU (rule E3 above) should be marked for retransmission and sent as soon as cwnd allows (normally, when a SACK arrives). ". This fixes problems when more then one path is present and the T3 retransmission of the first chunk that timeouts stops the T3 timer for the initial active path, leaving all the other in-flight chunks waiting forever or until a new chunk is transmitted on the same path and timeouts (and this will happen only if the cwnd allows sending new chunks, but since cwnd was dropped to MTU by the timeout => it will wait until the first heartbeat). Example: 10 packets in flight, sent at 0.1 s intervals on the primary path. The primary path is down and the first packet timeouts. The first packet is retransmitted on another path, the T3 timer for the primary path is stopped and cwnd is set to MTU. All the other 9 in-flight packets will not be retransmitted (unless more new packets are sent on the primary path which depend on cwnd allowing it, and even in this case the 9 packets will be retransmitted only after a new packet timeouts which even in the best case would be more then RTO). This commit reverts d0ce92910bc04e107b2f3f2048f07e94f570035d and also removes the now unused transport->last_rto, introduced in b6157d8e03e1e780660a328f7183bcbfa4a93a19. p.s The problem is not only when multiple paths are there. It can happen in a single homed environment. If the application stops sending data, it possible to have a hung association.

2009-11-26[SCSI] fix async scan add/remove race resulting in an oopsJames Bottomley1-0/+1
Async scanning introduced a very wide window where the SCSI device is up and running but has not yet been added to sysfs. We delay the adding until all scans have completed to retain the same ordering as sync scanning. This delay in visibility causes an oops if a device is removed before we make it visible because the SCSI removal routines have an inbuilt assumption that if a device is in SDEV_RUNNING state, it must be visible (which is not necessarily true in the async scanning case). Fix this by introducing an additional is_visible flag which we can use to condition the tear down so we do the right thing for running but not yet made visible.

2009-11-19CacheFiles: Catch an overly long wait for an old active objectDavid Howells1-2/+4
Catch an overly long wait for an old, dying active object when we want to replace it with a new one. The probability is that all the slow-work threads are hogged, and the delete can't get a look in. What we do instead is: (1) if there's nothing in the slow work queue, we sleep until either the dying object has finished dying or there is something in the slow work queue behind which we can queue our object. (2) if there is something in the slow work queue, we return ETIMEDOUT to fscache_lookup_object(), which then puts us back on the slow work queue, presumably behind the deletion that we're blocked by. We are then deferred for a while until we work our way back through the queue - without blocking a slow-work thread unnecessarily. A backtrace similar to the following may appear in the log without this patch: INFO: task kslowd004:5711 blocked for more than 120 seconds. "echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/hung_task_timeout_secs" disables this message. kslowd004 D 0000000000000000 0 5711 2 0x00000080 ffff88000340bb80 0000000000000046 ffff88002550d000 0000000000000000 ffff88002550d000 0000000000000007 ffff88000340bfd8 ffff88002550d2a8 000000000000ddf0 00000000000118c0 00000000000118c0 ffff88002550d2a8 Call Trace: [<ffffffff81058e21>] ? trace_hardirqs_on+0xd/0xf [<ffffffffa011c4d8>] ? cachefiles_wait_bit+0x0/0xd [cachefiles] [<ffffffffa011c4e1>] cachefiles_wait_bit+0x9/0xd [cachefiles] [<ffffffff81353153>] __wait_on_bit+0x43/0x76 [<ffffffff8111ae39>] ? ext3_xattr_get+0x1ec/0x270 [<ffffffff813531ef>] out_of_line_wait_on_bit+0x69/0x74 [<ffffffffa011c4d8>] ? cachefiles_wait_bit+0x0/0xd [cachefiles] [<ffffffff8104c125>] ? wake_bit_function+0x0/0x2e [<ffffffffa011bc79>] cachefiles_mark_object_active+0x203/0x23b [cachefiles] [<ffffffffa011c209>] cachefiles_walk_to_object+0x558/0x827 [cachefiles] [<ffffffffa011a429>] cachefiles_lookup_object+0xac/0x12a [cachefiles] [<ffffffffa00aa1e9>] fscache_lookup_object+0x1c7/0x214 [fscache] [<ffffffffa00aafc5>] fscache_object_state_machine+0xa5/0x52d [fscache] [<ffffffffa00ab4ac>] fscache_object_slow_work_execute+0x5f/0xa0 [fscache] [<ffffffff81082093>] slow_work_execute+0x18f/0x2d1 [<ffffffff8108239a>] slow_work_thread+0x1c5/0x308 [<ffffffff8104c0f1>] ? autoremove_wake_function+0x0/0x34 [<ffffffff810821d5>] ? slow_work_thread+0x0/0x308 [<ffffffff8104be91>] kthread+0x7a/0x82 [<ffffffff8100beda>] child_rip+0xa/0x20 [<ffffffff8100b87c>] ? restore_args+0x0/0x30 [<ffffffff8104be17>] ? kthread+0x0/0x82 [<ffffffff8100bed0>] ? child_rip+0x0/0x20 1 lock held by kslowd004/5711: #0: (&sb->s_type->i_mutex_key#7/1){+.+.+.}, at: [<ffffffffa011be64>] cachefiles_walk_to_object+0x1b3/0x827 [cachefiles] Signed-off-by: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com>
2009-11-19CacheFiles: Don't write a full page if there's only a partial page to cacheDavid Howells1-0/+3
cachefiles_write_page() writes a full page to the backing file for the last page of the netfs file, even if the netfs file's last page is only a partial page. This causes the EOF on the backing file to be extended beyond the EOF of the netfs, and thus the backing file will be truncated by cachefiles_attr_changed() called from cachefiles_lookup_object(). So we need to limit the write we make to the backing file on that last page such that it doesn't push the EOF too far. Also, if a backing file that has a partial page at the end is expanded, we discard the partial page and refetch it on the basis that we then have a hole in the file with invalid data, and should the power go out... A better way to deal with this could be to record a note that the partial page contains invalid data until the correct data is written into it. This isn't a problem for netfs's that discard the whole backing file if the file size changes (such as NFS). Signed-off-by: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com>
2009-11-19FS-Cache: Start processing an object's operations on that object's deathDavid Howells1-0/+4
Start processing an object's operations when that object moves into the DYING state as the object cannot be destroyed until all its outstanding operations have completed. Furthermore, make sure that read and allocation operations handle being woken up on a dead object. Such events are recorded in the Allocs.abt and Retrvls.abt statistics as viewable through /proc/fs/fscache/stats. The code for waiting for object activation for the read and allocation operations is also extracted into its own function as it is much the same in all cases, differing only in the stats incremented.

2009-11-19FS-Cache: Handle pages pending storage that get evicted under OOM conditionsDavid Howells2-0/+28
Handle netfs pages that the vmscan algorithm wants to evict from the pagecache under OOM conditions, but that are waiting for write to the cache. Under these conditions, vmscan calls the releasepage() function of the netfs, asking if a page can be discarded. The problem is typified by the following trace of a stuck process: kslowd005 D 0000000000000000 0 4253 2 0x00000080 ffff88001b14f370 0000000000000046 ffff880020d0d000 0000000000000007 0000000000000006 0000000000000001 ffff88001b14ffd8 ffff880020d0d2a8 000000000000ddf0 00000000000118c0 00000000000118c0 ffff880020d0d2a8 Call Trace: [<ffffffffa00782d8>] __fscache_wait_on_page_write+0x8b/0xa7 [fscache] [<ffffffff8104c0f1>] ? autoremove_wake_function+0x0/0x34 [<ffffffffa0078240>] ? __fscache_check_page_write+0x63/0x70 [fscache] [<ffffffffa00b671d>] nfs_fscache_release_page+0x4e/0xc4 [nfs] [<ffffffffa00927f0>] nfs_release_page+0x3c/0x41 [nfs] [<ffffffff810885d3>] try_to_release_page+0x32/0x3b [<ffffffff81093203>] shrink_page_list+0x316/0x4ac [<ffffffff8109372b>] shrink_inactive_list+0x392/0x67c [<ffffffff813532fa>] ? __mutex_unlock_slowpath+0x100/0x10b [<ffffffff81058df0>] ? trace_hardirqs_on_caller+0x10c/0x130 [<ffffffff8135330e>] ? mutex_unlock+0x9/0xb [<ffffffff81093aa2>] shrink_list+0x8d/0x8f [<ffffffff81093d1c>] shrink_zone+0x278/0x33c [<ffffffff81052d6c>] ? ktime_get_ts+0xad/0xba [<ffffffff81094b13>] try_to_free_pages+0x22e/0x392 [<ffffffff81091e24>] ? isolate_pages_global+0x0/0x212 [<ffffffff8108e743>] __alloc_pages_nodemask+0x3dc/0x5cf [<ffffffff81089529>] grab_cache_page_write_begin+0x65/0xaa [<ffffffff8110f8c0>] ext3_write_begin+0x78/0x1eb [<ffffffff81089ec5>] generic_file_buffered_write+0x109/0x28c [<ffffffff8103cb69>] ? current_fs_time+0x22/0x29 [<ffffffff8108a509>] __generic_file_aio_write+0x350/0x385 [<ffffffff8108a588>] ? generic_file_aio_write+0x4a/0xae [<ffffffff8108a59e>] generic_file_aio_write+0x60/0xae [<ffffffff810b2e82>] do_sync_write+0xe3/0x120 [<ffffffff8104c0f1>] ? autoremove_wake_function+0x0/0x34 [<ffffffff810b18e1>] ? __dentry_open+0x1a5/0x2b8 [<ffffffff810b1a76>] ? dentry_open+0x82/0x89 [<ffffffffa00e693c>] cachefiles_write_page+0x298/0x335 [cachefiles] [<ffffffffa0077147>] fscache_write_op+0x178/0x2c2 [fscache] [<ffffffffa0075656>] fscache_op_execute+0x7a/0xd1 [fscache] [<ffffffff81082093>] slow_work_execute+0x18f/0x2d1 [<ffffffff8108239a>] slow_work_thread+0x1c5/0x308 [<ffffffff8104c0f1>] ? autoremove_wake_function+0x0/0x34 [<ffffffff810821d5>] ? slow_work_thread+0x0/0x308 [<ffffffff8104be91>] kthread+0x7a/0x82 [<ffffffff8100beda>] child_rip+0xa/0x20 [<ffffffff8100b87c>] ? restore_args+0x0/0x30 [<ffffffff8102ef83>] ? tg_shares_up+0x171/0x227 [<ffffffff8104be17>] ? kthread+0x0/0x82 [<ffffffff8100bed0>] ? child_rip+0x0/0x20 In the above backtrace, the following is happening: (1) A page storage operation is being executed by a slow-work thread (fscache_write_op()). (2) FS-Cache farms the operation out to the cache to perform (cachefiles_write_page()). (3) CacheFiles is then calling Ext3 to perform the actual write, using Ext3's standard write (do_sync_write()) under KERNEL_DS directly from the netfs page. (4) However, for Ext3 to perform the write, it must allocate some memory, in particular, it must allocate at least one page cache page into which it can copy the data from the netfs page. (5) Under OOM conditions, the memory allocator can't immediately come up with a page, so it uses vmscan to find something to discard (try_to_free_pages()). (6) vmscan finds a clean netfs page it might be able to discard (possibly the one it's trying to write out). (7) The netfs is called to throw the page away (nfs_release_page()) - but it's called with __GFP_WAIT, so the netfs decides to wait for the store to complete (__fscache_wait_on_page_write()). (8) This blocks a slow-work processing thread - possibly against itself. The system ends up stuck because it can't write out any netfs pages to the cache without allocating more memory. To avoid this, we make FS-Cache cancel some writes that aren't in the middle of actually being performed. This means that some data won't make it into the cache this time. To support this, a new FS-Cache function is added fscache_maybe_release_page() that replaces what the netfs releasepage() functions used to do with respect to the cache. The decisions fscache_maybe_release_page() makes are counted and displayed through /proc/fs/fscache/stats on a line labelled "VmScan". There are four counters provided: "nos=N" - pages that weren't pending storage; "gon=N" - pages that were pending storage when we first looked, but weren't by the time we got the object lock; "bsy=N" - pages that we ignored as they were actively being written when we looked; and "can=N" - pages that we cancelled the storage of. What I'd really like to do is alter the behaviour of the cancellation heuristics, depending on how necessary it is to expel pages. If there are plenty of other pages that aren't waiting to be written to the cache that could be ejected first, then it would be nice to hold up on immediate cancellation of cache writes - but I don't see a way of doing that.

2009-11-19FS-Cache: Fix lock misorder in fscache_write_op()David Howells1-0/+1
FS-Cache has two structs internally for keeping track of the internal state of a cached file: the fscache_cookie struct, which represents the netfs's state, and fscache_object struct, which represents the cache's state. Each has a pointer that points to the other (when both are in existence), and each has a spinlock for pointer maintenance. Since netfs operations approach these structures from the cookie side, they get the cookie lock first, then the object lock. Cache operations, on the other hand, approach from the object side, and get the object lock first. It is not then permitted for a cache operation to get the cookie lock whilst it is holding the object lock lest deadlock occur; instead, it must do one of two things: (1) increment the cookie usage counter, drop the object lock and then get both locks in order, or (2) simply hold the object lock as certain parts of the cookie may not be altered whilst the object lock is held. It is also not permitted to follow either pointer without holding the lock at the end you start with. To break the pointers between the cookie and the object, both locks must be held. fscache_write_op(), however, violates the locking rules: It attempts to get the cookie lock without (a) checking that the cookie pointer is a valid pointer, and (b) holding the object lock to protect the cookie pointer whilst it follows it. This is so that it can access the pending page store tree without interference from __fscache_write_page(). This is fixed by splitting the cookie lock, such that the page store tracking tree is protected by its own lock, and checking that the cookie pointer is non-NULL before we attempt to follow it whilst holding the object lock. The new lock is subordinate to both the cookie lock and the object lock, and so should be taken after those. Signed-off-by: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com>

This can be restricted by adding a suitable key to one of the caller's keyrings (such as the session keyring): keyctl add user fscache:objlist "<restrictions>" @s The <restrictions> are: K Show hexdump of object key (don't show if not given) A Show hexdump of object aux data (don't show if not given) And paired restrictions: C Show objects that have a cookie c Show objects that don't have a cookie B Show objects that are busy b Show objects that aren't busy W Show objects that have pending writes w Show objects that don't have pending writes R Show objects that have outstanding reads r Show objects that don't have outstanding reads S Show objects that have slow work queued s Show objects that don't have slow work queued If neither side of a restriction pair is given, then both are implied. For example: keyctl add user fscache:objlist KB @s shows objects that are busy, and lists their object keys, but does not dump their auxiliary data. It also implies "CcWwRrSs", but as 'B' is given, 'b' is not implied. Signed-off-by: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com>

2009-11-19SLOW_WORK: Allow a requeueable work item to sleep till the thread is neededDavid Howells1-0/+3
Add a function to allow a requeueable work item to sleep till the thread processing it is needed by the slow-work facility to perform other work. Sometimes a work item can't progress immediately, but must wait for the completion of another work item that's currently being processed by another slow-work thread. In some circumstances, the waiting item could instead - theoretically - put itself back on the queue and yield its thread back to the slow-work facility, thus waiting till it gets processing time again before attempting to progress. This would allow other work items processing time on that thread. However, this only works if there is something on the queue for it to queue behind - otherwise it will just get a thread again immediately, and will end up cycling between the queue and the thread, eating up valuable CPU time. So, slow_work_sleep_till_thread_needed() is provided such that an item can put itself on a wait queue that will wake it up when the event it is actually interested in occurs, then call this function in lieu of calling schedule(). This function will then sleep until either the item's event occurs or another work item appears on the queue. If another work item is queued, but the item's event hasn't occurred, then the work item should requeue itself and yield the thread back to the slow-work facility by returning. This can be used by CacheFiles for an object that is being created on one thread to wait for an object being deleted on another thread where there is nothing on the queue for the creation to go and wait behind. As soon as an item appears on the queue that could be given thread time instead, CacheFiles can stick the creating object back on the queue and return to the slow-work facility - assuming the object deletion didn't also complete.

2009-11-19SLOW_WORK: Allow the owner of a work item to determine if it is queued or notDavid Howells1-0/+19
Add a function (slow_work_is_queued()) to permit the owner of a work item to determine if the item is queued or not. The work item is counted as being queued if it is actually on the queue, not just if it is pending. If it is executing and pending, then it is not on the queue, but will rather be put back on the queue when execution finishes. This permits a caller to quickly work out if it may be able to put another, dependent work item on the queue behind it, or whether it will have to wait till that is finished. This can be used by CacheFiles to work out whether the creation a new object can be immediately deferred when it has to wait for an old object to be deleted, or whether a wait must take place. If a wait is necessary, then the slow-work thread can otherwise get blocked, preventing the deletion from taking place. Signed-off-by: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com>

This is for consistency with various ioctl() operations that include the suffix "PGRP" in their names, and also for consistency with PRIO_PGRP, used with setpriority() and getpriority(). Also, using PGRP instead of GID avoids confusion with the common abbreviation of "group ID". I'm fine with anything that makes it more consistent, and if PGRP is what is the predominant abbreviation then I see no need to further confuse matters by adding a third one.

2009-11-17mm: allow memory hotplug and hibernation in the same kernelAndi Kleen1-2/+19
Allow memory hotplug and hibernation in the same kernel Memory hotplug and hibernation were exclusive in Kconfig. This is obviously a problem for distribution kernels who want to support both in the same image. After some discussions with Rafael and others the only problem is with parallel memory hotadd or removal while a hibernation operation is in process. It was also working for s390 before. This patch removes the Kconfig level exclusion, and simply makes the memory add / remove functions grab the pm_mutex to exclude against hibernation. Fixes a regression - old kernels didn't exclude memory hotadd and hibernation.

2009-11-13sctp: Set source addresses on the association before adding transportsVlad Yasevich1-1/+1
Recent commit 8da645e101a8c20c6073efda3c7cc74eec01b87f sctp: Get rid of an extra routing lookup when adding a transport introduced a regression in the connection setup. The behavior was different between IPv4 and IPv6. IPv4 case ended up working because the route lookup routing returned a NULL route, which triggered another route lookup later in the output patch that succeeded. In the IPv6 case, a valid route was returned for first call, but we could not find a valid source address at the time since the source addresses were not set on the association yet. Thus resulted in a hung connection. The solution is to set the source addresses on the association prior to adding peers.

Remove fb_save_state() and fb_restore_state operations from frame buffer layer. They are used only in two drivers: 1. savagefb - and cause bug #11248 2. uvesafb Usage of these operations is misunderstood in both drivers so kill these operations, fix the bug #11248 and avoid confusion in the future. Tested on Savage 3D/MV card and the patch fixes the bug #11248. The frame buffer layer uses these funtions during switch between graphics and text mode of the console, but these drivers saves state before switching of the frame buffer (in the fb_open) and after releasing it (in the fb_release). This defeats the purpose of these operations.

2009-11-06netfilter: nf_nat: fix NAT issue in 2.6.30.4+Jozsef Kadlecsik2-5/+7
Vitezslav Samel discovered that since 2.6.30.4+ active FTP can not work over NAT. The "cause" of the problem was a fix of unacknowledged data detection with NAT (commit a3a9f79e361e864f0e9d75ebe2a0cb43d17c4272). However, actually, that fix uncovered a long standing bug in TCP conntrack: when NAT was enabled, we simply updated the max of the right edge of the segments we have seen (td_end), by the offset NAT produced with changing IP/port in the data. However, we did not update the other parameter (td_maxend) which is affected by the NAT offset. Thus that could drift away from the correct value and thus resulted breaking active FTP. The patch below fixes the issue by *not* updating the conntrack parameters from NAT, but instead taking into account the NAT offsets in conntrack in a consistent way. (Updating from NAT would be more harder and expensive because it'd need to re-calculate parameters we already calculated in conntrack.)

While the exact nature of the failure is not known at the moment, it can be worked around by splitting the yenta resume into an early part, executed during the early phase of resume, that will only resume the socket and power it up if there was a card in it during suspend, and a late part, executed during "regular" resume, that will carry out all of the remaining yenta resume operations.
