2012-06-20fault-inject: avoid call to random32() if fault injection is disabledAnton Blanchard1-0/+4
After enabling CONFIG_FAILSLAB I noticed random32 in profiles even if slub fault injection wasn't enabled at runtime. should_fail forces a comparison against random32() even if probability is 0: if (attr->probability <= random32() % 100) return false; Add a check up front for probability == 0 and avoid all of the more complicated checks.

2012-06-07btree: fix tree corruption in btree_get_prev()Roland Dreier1-2/+2
The memory the parameter __key points to is used as an iterator in btree_get_prev(), so if we save off a bkey() pointer in retry_key and then assign that to __key, we'll end up corrupting the btree internals when we do eg longcpy(__key, bkey(geo, node, i), geo->keylen); to return the key value. What we should do instead is use longcpy() to copy the key value that retry_key points to __key. This can cause a btree to get corrupted by seemingly read-only operations such as btree_for_each_safe.

2012-05-31vsprintf: further optimize decimal conversionDenys Vlasenko1-91/+190
Previous code was using optimizations which were developed to work well even on narrow-word CPUs (by today's standards). But Linux runs only on 32-bit and wider CPUs. We can use that. First: using 32x32->64 multiply and trivial 32-bit shift, we can correctly divide by 10 much larger numbers, and thus we can print groups of 9 digits instead of groups of 5 digits. Next: there are two algorithms to print larger numbers. One is generic: divide by 1000000000 and repeatedly print groups of (up to) 9 digits. It's conceptually simple, but requires an (unsigned long long) / 1000000000 division. Second algorithm splits 64-bit unsigned long long into 16-bit chunks, manipulates them cleverly and generates groups of 4 decimal digits. It so happens that it does NOT require long long division. If long is > 32 bits, division of 64-bit values is relatively easy, and we will use the first algorithm. If long long is > 64 bits (strange architecture with VERY large long long), second algorithm can't be used, and we again use the first one. Else (if long is 32 bits and long long is 64 bits) we use second one. And third: there is a simple optimization which takes fast path not only for zero as was done before, but for all one-digit numbers. In all tested cases new code is faster than old one, in many cases by 30%, in few cases by more than 50% (for example, on x86-32, conversion of 12345678). Code growth is ~0 in 32-bit case and ~130 bytes in 64-bit case. This patch is based upon an original from Michal Nazarewicz.

2012-05-31vsprintf: correctly handle width when '#' flag used in %#p formatGrant Likely1-3/+5
The '%p' output of the kernel's vsprintf() uses spec.field_width to determine how many digits to output based on 2 * sizeof(void*) so that all digits of a pointer are shown. ie. a pointer will be output as "001A2B3C" instead of "1A2B3C". However, if the '#' flag is used in the format (%#p), then the code doesn't take into account the width of the '0x' prefix and will end up outputing "0x1A2B3C" instead of "0x001A2B3C". This patch reworks the "pointer()" format hook to include 2 characters for the '0x' prefix if the '#' flag is included.

This makes <asm/word-at-a-time.h> actually live up to its promise of allowing architectures to help tune the string functions that do their work a word at a time. David had already taken the x86 strncpy_from_user() function, modified it to work on sparc, and then done the extra work to make it generically useful. This then expands on that work by making x86 use that generic version, completing the circle. But more importantly, it fixes up the word-at-a-time interfaces so that it's now easy to also support things like strnlen_user(), and pretty much most random string functions. David reports that it all works fine on sparc, and Jonas Bonn reported that an earlier version of this worked on OpenRISC too. It's pretty easy for architectures to add support for this and just replace their private versions with the generic code. * generic-string-functions: sparc: use the new generic strnlen_user() function x86: use the new generic strnlen_user() function lib: add generic strnlen_user() function word-at-a-time: make the interfaces truly generic x86: use generic strncpy_from_user routine

This adds a new generic optimized strnlen_user() function that uses the <asm/word-at-a-time.h> infrastructure to portably do efficient string handling. In many ways, strnlen is much simpler than strncpy, and in particular we can always pre-align the words we load from memory. That means that all the worries about alignment etc are a non-issue, so this one can easily be used on any architecture. You obviously do have to do the appropriate word-at-a-time.h macros.

2012-05-26word-at-a-time: make the interfaces truly genericLinus Torvalds1-40/+7
This changes the interfaces in <asm/word-at-a-time.h> to be a bit more complicated, but a lot more generic. In particular, it allows us to really do the operations efficiently on both little-endian and big-endian machines, pretty much regardless of machine details. For example, if you can rely on a fast population count instruction on your architecture, this will allow you to make your optimized <asm/word-at-a-time.h> file with that. NOTE! The "generic" version in include/asm-generic/word-at-a-time.h is not truly generic, it actually only works on big-endian. Why? Because on little-endian the generic algorithms are wasteful, since you can inevitably do better. The x86 implementation is an example of that. (The only truly non-generic part of the asm-generic implementation is the "find_zero()" function, and you could make a little-endian version of it. And if the Kbuild infrastructure allowed us to pick a particular header file, that would be lovely) The <asm/word-at-a-time.h> functions are as follows: - WORD_AT_A_TIME_CONSTANTS: specific constants that the algorithm uses. - has_zero(): take a word, and determine if it has a zero byte in it. It gets the word, the pointer to the constant pool, and a pointer to an intermediate "data" field it can set. This is the "quick-and-dirty" zero tester: it's what is run inside the hot loops. - "prep_zero_mask()": take the word, the data that has_zero() produced, and the constant pool, and generate an *exact* mask of which byte had the first zero. This is run directly *outside* the loop, and allows the "has_zero()" function to answer the "is there a zero byte" question without necessarily getting exactly *which* byte is the first one to contain a zero. If you do multiple byte lookups concurrently (eg "hash_name()", which looks for both NUL and '/' bytes), after you've done the prep_zero_mask() phase, the result of those can be or'ed together to get the "either or" case. - The result from "prep_zero_mask()" can then be fed into "find_zero()" (to find the byte offset of the first byte that was zero) or into "zero_bytemask()" (to find the bytemask of the bytes preceding the zero byte). The existence of zero_bytemask() is optional, and is not necessary for the normal string routines. But dentry name hashing needs it, so if you enable DENTRY_WORD_AT_A_TIME you need to expose it. This changes the generic strncpy_from_user() function and the dentry hashing functions to use these modified word-at-a-time interfaces. This gets us back to the optimized state of the x86 strncpy that we lost in the previous commit when moving over to the generic version. Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

Pull sparc changes from David S. Miller: "This has the generic strncpy_from_user() implementation architectures can now use, which we've been developing on linux-arch over the past few days. For good measure I ran both a 32-bit and a 64-bit glibc testsuite run, and the latter of which pointed out an adjustment I needed to make to sparc's user_addr_max() definition. Linus, you were right, STACK_TOP was not the right thing to use, even on sparc itself :-) From Sam Ravnborg, we have a conversion of sparc32 over to the common alloc_thread_info_node(), since the aspect which originally blocked our doing so (sun4c) has been removed."

To use this, an architecture simply needs to: 1) Provide a user_addr_max() implementation via asm/uaccess.h 2) Add "select GENERIC_STRNCPY_FROM_USER" to their arch Kcnfig 3) Remove the existing strncpy_from_user() implementation and symbol exports their architecture had.
