2015-04-11blk-mq: initialize 'struct request' and associated data to zeroLinus Torvalds
Jan Engelhardt reports a strange oops with an invalid ->sense_buffer pointer in scsi_init_cmd_errh() with the blk-mq code. The sense_buffer pointer should have been initialized by the call to scsi_init_request() from blk_mq_init_rq_map(), but there seems to be some non-repeatable memory corruptor. This patch makes sure we initialize the whole struct request allocation (and the associated 'struct scsi_cmnd' for the SCSI case) to zero, by using __GFP_ZERO in the allocation. The old code initialized a couple of individual fields, leaving the rest undefined (although many of them are then initialized in later phases, like blk_mq_rq_ctx_init() etc. It's not entirely clear why this matters, but it's the rigth thing to do regardless, and with 4.0 imminent this is the defensive "let's just make sure everything is initialized properly" patch.

2015-03-31block: fix blk_stack_limits() regression due to lcm() changeMike Snitzer
Linux 3.19 commit 69c953c ("lib/lcm.c: lcm(n,0)=lcm(0,n) is 0, not n") caused blk_stack_limits() to not properly stack queue_limits for stacked devices (e.g. DM). Fix this regression by establishing lcm_not_zero() and switching blk_stack_limits() over to using it. DM uses blk_set_stacking_limits() to establish the initial top-level queue_limits that are then built up based on underlying devices' limits using blk_stack_limits(). In the case of optimal_io_size (io_opt) blk_set_stacking_limits() establishes a default value of 0. With commit 69c953c, lcm(0, n) is no longer n, which compromises proper stacking of the underlying devices' io_opt.

2015-03-18blkmq: Fix NULL pointer deref when all reserved tags inSam Bradshaw
When allocating from the reserved tags pool, bt_get() is called with a NULL hctx. If all tags are in use, the hw queue is kicked to push out any pending IO, potentially freeing tags, and tag allocation is retried. The problem is that blk_mq_run_hw_queue() doesn't check for a NULL hctx. So we avoid it with a simple NULL hctx test. Tested by hammering mtip32xx with concurrent smartctl/hdparm.

2015-02-20blk-throttle: check stats_cpu before reading it from sysfsThadeu Lima de Souza Cascardo
When reading blkio.throttle.io_serviced in a recently created blkio cgroup, it's possible to race against the creation of a throttle policy, which delays the allocation of stats_cpu. Like other functions in the throttle code, just checking for a NULL stats_cpu prevents the following oops caused by that race.

Perhaps the biggest risk is the get_memory_map() change from Ard, which changes the way that both the arm64 and x86 EFI boot stub build the early memory map. It would be good to have it bake in linux-next for a while. " Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <>
2015-01-29blk-mq: release mq's kobjects in blk_release_queue()Ming Lei
The kobject memory inside blk-mq hctx/ctx shouldn't have been freed before the kobject is released because driver core can access it freely before its release. We can't do that in all ctx/hctx/mq_kobj's release handler because it can be run before blk_cleanup_queue(). Given mq_kobj shouldn't have been introduced, this patch simply moves mq's release into blk_release_queue(). Reported-by: Sasha Levin <> Signed-off-by: Ming Lei <> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <>

2015-01-28block: keep established cmd_flags when cloning into a blk-mq requestKeith Busch
blk_mq_alloc_request() may establish REQ_MQ_INFLIGHT in addition to incrementing the hctx->nr_active count. Any cmd_flags that are established in the newly allocated clone request must be preserved in addition to the cmd_flags that are later copied over from the original request as part of blk_rq_prep_clone(). Otherwise, if REQ_MQ_INFLIGHT isn't set in the clone request the hctx->nr_active count won't get decremented via blk_mq_free_request(). The only consumer of blk_rq_prep_clone() is request-based DM, which uses blk_rq_init() prior to calling blk_rq_prep_clone() for the non-blk-mq case. Given the cloned request's cmd_flags will be 0 it is safe to OR them with the original request's cmd_flags for both the non-blk-mq and blk-mq cases.

2015-01-23blk-mq: add tag allocation policyShaohua Li
This is the blk-mq part to support tag allocation policy. The default allocation policy isn't changed (though it's not a strict FIFO). The new policy is round-robin for libata. But it's a try-best implementation. If multiple tasks are competing, the tags returned will be mixed (which is unavoidable even with !mq, as requests from different tasks can be mixed in queue) Cc: Jens Axboe <> Cc: Tejun Heo <> Cc: Christoph Hellwig <> Signed-off-by: Shaohua Li <> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <>

2015-01-21block: Add discard flag to blkdev_issue_zeroout() functionMartin K. Petersen
blkdev_issue_discard() will zero a given block range. This is done by way of explicit writing, thus provisioning or allocating the blocks on disk. There are use cases where the desired behavior is to zero the blocks but unprovision them if possible. The blocks must deterministically contain zeroes when they are subsequently read back. This patch adds a flag to blkdev_issue_zeroout() that provides this variant. If the discard flag is set and a block device guarantees discard_zeroes_data we will use REQ_DISCARD to clear the block range. If the device does not support discard_zeroes_data or if the discard request fails we will fall back to first REQ_WRITE_SAME and then a regular REQ_WRITE. Also update the callers of blkdev_issue_zero() to reflect the new flag and make sb_issue_zeroout() prefer the discard approach. Signed-off-by: Martin K.

2015-01-21cfq-iosched: fix incorrect filing of rt async cfqqJeff Moyer
Hi, If you can manage to submit an async write as the first async I/O from the context of a process with realtime scheduling priority, then a cfq_queue is allocated, but filed into the wrong async_cfqq bucket. It ends up in the best effort array, but actually has realtime I/O scheduling priority set in cfqq->ioprio. The reason is that cfq_get_queue assumes the default scheduling class and priority when there is no information present (i.e. when the async cfqq is created): static struct cfq_queue * cfq_get_queue(struct cfq_data *cfqd, bool is_sync, struct cfq_io_cq *cic, struct bio *bio, gfp_t gfp_mask) { const int ioprio_class = IOPRIO_PRIO_CLASS(cic->ioprio); const int ioprio = IOPRIO_PRIO_DATA(cic->ioprio); cic->ioprio starts out as 0, which is "invalid". So, class of 0 (IOPRIO_CLASS_NONE) is passed to cfq_async_queue_prio like so: async_cfqq = cfq_async_queue_prio(cfqd, ioprio_class, ioprio); static struct cfq_queue ** cfq_async_queue_prio(struct cfq_data *cfqd, int ioprio_class, int ioprio) { switch (ioprio_class) { case IOPRIO_CLASS_RT: return &cfqd->async_cfqq[0][ioprio]; case IOPRIO_CLASS_NONE: ioprio = IOPRIO_NORM; /* fall through */ case IOPRIO_CLASS_BE: return &cfqd->async_cfqq[1][ioprio]; case IOPRIO_CLASS_IDLE: return &cfqd->async_idle_cfqq; default: BUG(); } } Here, instead of returning a class mapped from the process' scheduling priority, we get back the bucket associated with IOPRIO_CLASS_BE. Now, there is no queue allocated there yet, so we create it: cfqq = cfq_find_alloc_queue(cfqd, is_sync, cic, bio, gfp_mask); That function ends up doing this: cfq_init_cfqq(cfqd, cfqq, current->pid, is_sync); cfq_init_prio_data(cfqq, cic); cfq_init_cfqq marks the priority as having changed. Then, cfq_init_prio data does this: ioprio_class = IOPRIO_PRIO_CLASS(cic->ioprio); switch (ioprio_class) { default: printk(KERN_ERR "cfq: bad prio %x\n", ioprio_class); case IOPRIO_CLASS_NONE: /* * no prio set, inherit CPU scheduling settings */ cfqq->ioprio = task_nice_ioprio(tsk); cfqq->ioprio_class = task_nice_ioclass(tsk); break; So we basically have two code paths that treat IOPRIO_CLASS_NONE differently, which results in an RT async cfqq filed into a best effort bucket. Attached is a patch which fixes the problem. I'm not sure how to make it cleaner. Suggestions would be welcome.

2015-01-20fs: introduce f_op->mmap_capabilities for nommu mmap supportChristoph Hellwig
Since "BDI: Provide backing device capability information [try #3]" the backing_dev_info structure also provides flags for the kind of mmap operation available in a nommu environment, which is entirely unrelated to it's original purpose. Introduce a new nommu-only file operation to provide this information to the nommu mmap code instead. Splitting this from the backing_dev_info structure allows to remove lots of backing_dev_info instance that aren't otherwise needed, and entirely gets rid of the concept of providing a backing_dev_info for a character device. It also removes the need for the mtd_inodefs filesystem. Signed-off-by: Christoph Hellwig <> Reviewed-by: Tejun Heo <> Acked-by: Brian Norris <> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <>

2015-01-14blk-mq: fix false negative out-of-tags conditionJens Axboe
The blk-mq tagging tries to maintain some locality between CPUs and the tags issued. The tags are split into groups of words, and the words may not be fully populated. When searching for a new free tag, blk-mq may look at partial words, hence it passes in an offset/size to find_next_zero_bit(). However, it does that wrong, the size must always be the full length of the number of tags in that word, otherwise we'll potentially miss some near the end. Another issue is when __bt_get() goes from one word set to the next. It bumps the index, but not the last_tag associated with the previous index. Bump that to be in the range of the new word. Finally, clean up __bt_get() and __bt_get_word() a bit and get rid of the goto in there, and the unnecessary 'wrap' variable. Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <>
