At that point conversions of individual filesystems can happen independently; some are done here (afs, cgroup, procfs, etc.), there's also a large series outside of that pile dealing with NFS (quite a bit of option-parsing stuff is getting used there - it's one of the most convoluted filesystems in terms of mount-related logics), but NFS bits are the next cycle fodder. It got seriously simplified since the last cycle; documentation is probably the weakest bit at the moment - I considered dropping the commit introducing Documentation/filesystems/mount_api.txt (cutting the size increase by quarter ;-), but decided that it would be better to fix it up after -rc1 instead.

Pull io_uring IO interface from Jens Axboe: "Second attempt at adding the io_uring interface. Since the first one, we've added basic unit testing of the three system calls, that resides in liburing like the other unit tests that we have so far. It'll take a while to get full coverage of it, but we're working towards it. I've also added two basic test programs to tools/io_uring. One uses the raw interface and has support for all the various features that io_uring supports outside of standard IO, like fixed files, fixed IO buffers, and polled IO. The other uses the liburing API, and is a simplified version of cp(1). This adds support for a new IO interface, io_uring. io_uring allows an application to communicate with the kernel through two rings, the submission queue (SQ) and completion queue (CQ) ring. This allows for very efficient handling of IOs, see the v5 posting for some basic numbers: https://lore.kernel.org/linux-block/20190116175003.17880-1-axboe@kernel.dk/ Outside of just efficiency, the interface is also flexible and extendable, and allows for future use cases like the upcoming NVMe key-value store API, networked IO, and so on. It also supports async buffered IO, something that we've always failed to support in the kernel. Outside of basic IO features, it supports async polled IO as well. This particular feature has already been tested at Facebook months ago for flash storage boxes, with 25-33% improvements. It makes polled IO actually useful for real world use cases, where even basic flash sees a nice win in terms of efficiency, latency, and performance. These boxes were IOPS bound before, now they are not. This series adds three new system calls. One for setting up an io_uring instance (io_uring_setup(2)), one for submitting/completing IO (io_uring_enter(2)), and one for aux functions like registrating file sets, buffers, etc (io_uring_register(2)). Through the help of Arnd, I've coordinated the syscall numbers so merge on that front should be painless. Jon did a writeup of the interface a while back, which (except for minor details that have been tweaked) is still accurate. Find that here: https://lwn.net/Articles/776703/ Huge thanks to Al Viro for helping getting the reference cycle code correct, and to Jann Horn for his extensive reviews focused on both security and bugs in general. There's a userspace library that provides basic functionality for applications that don't need or want to care about how to fiddle with the rings directly. It has helpers to allow applications to easily set up an io_uring instance, and submit/complete IO through it without knowing about the intricacies of the rings. It also includes man pages (thanks to Jeff Moyer), and will continue to grow support helper functions and features as time progresses. Find it here: git://git.kernel.dk/liburing Fio has full support for the raw interface, both in the form of an IO engine (io_uring), but also with a small test application (t/io_uring) that can exercise and benchmark the interface" * tag 'io_uring-2019-03-06' of git://git.kernel.dk/linux-block: io_uring: add a few test tools io_uring: allow workqueue item to handle multiple buffered requests io_uring: add support for IORING_OP_POLL io_uring: add io_kiocb ref count io_uring: add submission polling io_uring: add file set registration net: split out functions related to registering inflight socket files io_uring: add support for pre-mapped user IO buffers block: implement bio helper to add iter bvec pages to bio io_uring: batch io_kiocb allocation io_uring: use fget/fput_many() for file references fs: add fget_many() and fput_many() io_uring: support for IO polling io_uring: add fsync support Add io_uring IO interface
2019-02-28Add io_uring IO interfaceJens Axboe
The submission queue (SQ) and completion queue (CQ) rings are shared between the application and the kernel. This eliminates the need to copy data back and forth to submit and complete IO. IO submissions use the io_uring_sqe data structure, and completions are generated in the form of io_uring_cqe data structures. The SQ ring is an index into the io_uring_sqe array, which makes it possible to submit a batch of IOs without them being contiguous in the ring. The CQ ring is always contiguous, as completion events are inherently unordered, and hence any io_uring_cqe entry can point back to an arbitrary submission. Two new system calls are added for this: io_uring_setup(entries, params) Sets up an io_uring instance for doing async IO. On success, returns a file descriptor that the application can mmap to gain access to the SQ ring, CQ ring, and io_uring_sqes. io_uring_enter(fd, to_submit, min_complete, flags, sigset, sigsetsize) Initiates IO against the rings mapped to this fd, or waits for them to complete, or both. The behavior is controlled by the parameters passed in. If 'to_submit' is non-zero, then we'll try and submit new IO. If IORING_ENTER_GETEVENTS is set, the kernel will wait for 'min_complete' events, if they aren't already available. It's valid to set IORING_ENTER_GETEVENTS and 'min_complete' == 0 at the same time, this allows the kernel to return already completed events without waiting for them. This is useful only for polling, as for IRQ driven IO, the application can just check the CQ ring without entering the kernel. With this setup, it's possible to do async IO with a single system call. Future developments will enable polled IO with this interface, and polled submission as well. The latter will enable an application to do IO without doing ANY system calls at all. For IRQ driven IO, an application only needs to enter the kernel for completions if it wants to wait for them to occur. Each io_uring is backed by a workqueue, to support buffered async IO as well. We will only punt to an async context if the command would need to wait for IO on the device side. Any data that can be accessed directly in the page cache is done inline. This avoids the slowness issue of usual threadpools, since cached data is accessed as quickly as a sync interface.

2019-02-28vfs: Add configuration parser helpersDavid Howells
Because the new API passes in key,value parameters, match_token() cannot be used with it. Instead, provide three new helpers to aid with parsing: (1) fs_parse(). This takes a parameter and a simple static description of all the parameters and maps the key name to an ID. It returns 1 on a match, 0 on no match if unknowns should be ignored and some other negative error code on a parse error. The parameter description includes a list of key names to IDs, desired parameter types and a list of enumeration name -> ID mappings. [!] Note that for the moment I've required that the key->ID mapping array is expected to be sorted and unterminated. The size of the array is noted in the fsconfig_parser struct. This allows me to use bsearch(), but I'm not sure any performance gain is worth the hassle of requiring people to keep the array sorted. The parameter type array is sized according to the number of parameter IDs and is indexed directly. The optional enum mapping array is an unterminated, unsorted list and the size goes into the fsconfig_parser struct. The function can do some additional things: (a) If it's not ambiguous and no value is given, the prefix "no" on a key name is permitted to indicate that the parameter should be considered negatory. (b) If the desired type is a single simple integer, it will perform an appropriate conversion and store the result in a union in the parse result. (c) If the desired type is an enumeration, {key ID, name} will be looked up in the enumeration list and the matching value will be stored in the parse result union. (d) Optionally generate an error if the key is unrecognised. This is called something like: enum rdt_param { Opt_cdp, Opt_cdpl2, Opt_mba_mpbs, nr__rdt_params }; const struct fs_parameter_spec rdt_param_specs[nr__rdt_params] = { [Opt_cdp] = { fs_param_is_bool }, [Opt_cdpl2] = { fs_param_is_bool }, [Opt_mba_mpbs] = { fs_param_is_bool }, }; const const char *const rdt_param_keys[nr__rdt_params] = { [Opt_cdp] = "cdp", [Opt_cdpl2] = "cdpl2", [Opt_mba_mpbs] = "mba_mbps", }; const struct fs_parameter_description rdt_parser = { .name = "rdt", .nr_params = nr__rdt_params, .keys = rdt_param_keys, .specs = rdt_param_specs, .no_source = true, }; int rdt_parse_param(struct fs_context *fc, struct fs_parameter *param) { struct fs_parse_result parse; struct rdt_fs_context *ctx = rdt_fc2context(fc); int ret; ret = fs_parse(fc, &rdt_parser, param, &parse); if (ret < 0) return ret; switch (parse.key) { case Opt_cdp: ctx->enable_cdpl3 = true; return 0; case Opt_cdpl2: ctx->enable_cdpl2 = true; return 0; case Opt_mba_mpbs: ctx->enable_mba_mbps = true; return 0; } return -EINVAL; } (2) fs_lookup_param(). This takes a { dirfd, path, LOOKUP_EMPTY? } or string value and performs an appropriate path lookup to convert it into a path object, which it will then return. If the desired type was a blockdev, the type of the looked up inode will be checked to make sure it is one. This can be used like: enum foo_param { Opt_source, nr__foo_params }; const struct fs_parameter_spec foo_param_specs[nr__foo_params] = { [Opt_source] = { fs_param_is_blockdev }, }; const char *char foo_param_keys[nr__foo_params] = { [Opt_source] = "source", }; const struct constant_table foo_param_alt_keys[] = { { "device", Opt_source }, }; const struct fs_parameter_description foo_parser = { .name = "foo", .nr_params = nr__foo_params, .nr_alt_keys = ARRAY_SIZE(foo_param_alt_keys), .keys = foo_param_keys, .alt_keys = foo_param_alt_keys, .specs = foo_param_specs, }; int foo_parse_param(struct fs_context *fc, struct fs_parameter *param) { struct fs_parse_result parse; struct foo_fs_context *ctx = foo_fc2context(fc); int ret; ret = fs_parse(fc, &foo_parser, param, &parse); if (ret < 0) return ret; switch (parse.key) { case Opt_source: return fs_lookup_param(fc, &foo_parser, param, &parse, &ctx->source); default: return -EINVAL; } } (3) lookup_constant(). This takes a table of named constants and looks up the given name within it. The table is expected to be sorted such that bsearch() be used upon it. Possibly I should require the table be terminated and just use a for-loop to scan it instead of using bsearch() to reduce hassle. Tables look something like: static const struct constant_table bool_names[] = { { "0", false }, { "1", true }, { "false", false }, { "no", false }, { "true", true }, { "yes", true }, }; and a lookup is done with something like: b = lookup_constant(bool_names, param->string, -1); Additionally, optional validation routines for the parameter description are provided that can be enabled at compile time. A later patch will invoke these when a filesystem is registered. Signed-off-by: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>

2019-01-30vfs: Introduce fs_context, switch vfs_kern_mount() to it.David Howells
Introduce a filesystem context concept to be used during superblock creation for mount and superblock reconfiguration for remount. This is allocated at the beginning of the mount procedure and into it is placed: (1) Filesystem type. (2) Namespaces. (3) Source/Device names (there may be multiple). (4) Superblock flags (SB_*). (5) Security details. (6) Filesystem-specific data, as set by the mount options. Accessor functions are then provided to set up a context, parameterise it from monolithic mount data (the data page passed to mount(2)) and tear it down again. A legacy wrapper is provided that implements what will be the basic operations, wrapping access to filesystems that aren't yet aware of the fs_context. Finally, vfs_kern_mount() is changed to make use of the fs_context and mount_fs() is replaced by vfs_get_tree(), called from vfs_kern_mount().

2018-06-11autofs: remove left-over autofs4 stubsLinus Torvalds
There's no need to retain the fs/autofs4 directory for backward compatibility. Adding an AUTOFS4_FS fragment to the autofs Kconfig and a module alias for autofs4 is sufficient for almost all cases. Not keeping fs/autofs4 remnants will prevent "insmod <path>/autofs4/autofs4.ko" from working but this shouldn't be used in automation scripts rather than modprobe(8). There were some comments about things to look out for with the module rename in the fs/autofs4/Kconfig that is removed by this patch, see the commit patch if you are interested. One potential problem with this change is that when the fs/autofs/Kconfig fragment for AUTOFS4_FS is removed any AUTOFS4_FS entries will be removed from the kernel config, resulting in no autofs file system being built if there is no AUTOFS_FS entry also. This would have also happened if the fs/autofs4 remnants had remained and is most likely to be a problem with automated builds. Please check your build configurations before the removal which will occur after the next couple of kernel releases.

2017-11-02License cleanup: add SPDX GPL-2.0 license identifier to files with no licenseGreg Kroah-Hartman
Many source files in the tree are missing licensing information, which makes it harder for compliance tools to determine the correct license. By default all files without license information are under the default license of the kernel, which is GPL version 2. Update the files which contain no license information with the 'GPL-2.0' SPDX license identifier. The SPDX identifier is a legally binding shorthand, which can be used instead of the full boiler plate text. This patch is based on work done by Thomas Gleixner and Kate Stewart and Philippe Ombredanne. How this work was done: Patches were generated and checked against linux-4.14-rc6 for a subset of the use cases: - file had no licensing information it it. - file was a */uapi/* one with no licensing information in it, - file was a */uapi/* one with existing licensing information, Further patches will be generated in subsequent months to fix up cases where non-standard license headers were used, and references to license had to be inferred by heuristics based on keywords. The analysis to determine which SPDX License Identifier to be applied to a file was done in a spreadsheet of side by side results from of the output of two independent scanners (ScanCode & Windriver) producing SPDX tag:value files created by Philippe Ombredanne. Philippe prepared the base worksheet, and did an initial spot review of a few 1000 files. The 4.13 kernel was the starting point of the analysis with 60,537 files assessed. Kate Stewart did a file by file comparison of the scanner results in the spreadsheet to determine which SPDX license identifier(s) to be applied to the file. She confirmed any determination that was not immediately clear with lawyers working with the Linux Foundation. Criteria used to select files for SPDX license identifier tagging was: - Files considered eligible had to be source code files. - Make and config files were included as candidates if they contained >5 lines of source - File already had some variant of a license header in it (even if <5 lines). All documentation files were explicitly excluded. The following heuristics were used to determine which SPDX license identifiers to apply. - when both scanners couldn't find any license traces, file was considered to have no license information in it, and the top level COPYING file license applied. For non */uapi/* files that summary was: SPDX license identifier # files ---------------------------------------------------|------- GPL-2.0 11139 and resulted in the first patch in this series. If that file was a */uapi/* path one, it was "GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note" otherwise it was "GPL-2.0". Results of that was: SPDX license identifier # files ---------------------------------------------------|------- GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note 930 and resulted in the second patch in this series. - if a file had some form of licensing information in it, and was one of the */uapi/* ones, it was denoted with the Linux-syscall-note if any GPL family license was found in the file or had no licensing in it (per prior point). Results summary: SPDX license identifier # files ---------------------------------------------------|------ GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note 270 GPL-2.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note 169 ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR BSD-2-Clause) 21 ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR BSD-3-Clause) 17 LGPL-2.1+ WITH Linux-syscall-note 15 GPL-1.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note 14 ((GPL-2.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR BSD-3-Clause) 5 LGPL-2.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note 4 LGPL-2.1 WITH Linux-syscall-note 3 ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR MIT) 3 ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) AND MIT) 1 and that resulted in the third patch in this series. - when the two scanners agreed on the detected license(s), that became the concluded license(s). - when there was disagreement between the two scanners (one detected a license but the other didn't, or they both detected different licenses) a manual inspection of the file occurred. - In most cases a manual inspection of the information in the file resulted in a clear resolution of the license that should apply (and which scanner probably needed to revisit its heuristics). - When it was not immediately clear, the license identifier was confirmed with lawyers working with the Linux Foundation. - If there was any question as to the appropriate license identifier, the file was flagged for further research and to be revisited later in time. In total, over 70 hours of logged manual review was done on the spreadsheet to determine the SPDX license identifiers to apply to the source files by Kate, Philippe, Thomas and, in some cases, confirmation by lawyers working with the Linux Foundation. Kate also obtained a third independent scan of the 4.13 code base from FOSSology, and compared selected files where the other two scanners disagreed against that SPDX file, to see if there was new insights. The Windriver scanner is based on an older version of FOSSology in part, so they are related. Thomas did random spot checks in about 500 files from the spreadsheets for the uapi headers and agreed with SPDX license identifier in the files he inspected. For the non-uapi files Thomas did random spot checks in about 15000 files. In initial set of patches against 4.14-rc6, 3 files were found to have copy/paste license identifier errors, and have been fixed to reflect the correct identifier. Additionally Philippe spent 10 hours this week doing a detailed manual inspection and review of the 12,461 patched files from the initial patch version early this week with: - a full scancode scan run, collecting the matched texts, detected license ids and scores - reviewing anything where there was a license detected (about 500+ files) to ensure that the applied SPDX license was correct - reviewing anything where there was no detection but the patch license was not GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note to ensure that the applied SPDX license was correct This produced a worksheet with 20 files needing minor correction. This worksheet was then exported into 3 different .csv files for the different types of files to be modified. These .csv files were then reviewed by Greg. Thomas wrote a script to parse the csv files and add the proper SPDX tag to the file, in the format that the file expected. This script was further refined by Greg based on the output to detect more types of files automatically and to distinguish between header and source .c files (which need different comment types.) Finally Greg ran the script using the .csv files to generate the patches.

Add infrastructure for multipage buffered writes. This is implemented using an main iterator that applies an actor function to a range that can be written. This infrastucture is used to implement a buffered write helper, one to zero file ranges and one to implement the ->page_mkwrite VM operations. All of them borrow a fair amount of code from fs/buffers. for now by using an internal version of __block_write_begin that gets passed an iomap and builds the corresponding buffer head. The file system is gets a set of paired ->iomap_begin and ->iomap_end calls which allow it to map/reserve a range and get a notification once the write code is finished with it.

Prevent clean ext3 filesystems from mounting by default with the ext2 driver (with no journal!) by putting ext4 ahead of ext2 in the default probe order. This will have the effect of mounting ext2 filesystems with ext4.ko by default, which is a safer failure than hoping the user notices that their journalled ext3 is now running without a journal!

2015-02-03tracefs: Add new tracefs file systemSteven Rostedt (Red Hat)
Add a separate file system to handle the tracing directory. Currently it is part of debugfs, but that is starting to show its limits. One thing is that in order to access the tracing infrastructure, you need to mount debugfs. As that includes debugging from all sorts of sub systems in the kernel, it is not considered advisable to mount such an all encompassing debugging system. Having the tracing system in its own file systems gives access to the tracing sub system without needing to include all other systems. Another problem with tracing using the debugfs system is that the instances use mkdir to create sub buffers. debugfs does not support mkdir from userspace so to implement it, special hacks were used. By controlling the file system that the tracing infrastructure uses, this can be properly done without hacks. Signed-off-by: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org>
2014-12-10Merge branch 'nsfs' into for-nextAl Viro
2014-12-10take the targets of /proc/*/ns/* symlinks to separate fsAl Viro
New pseudo-filesystem: nsfs. Targets of /proc/*/ns/* live there now. It's not mountable (not even registered, so it's not in /proc/filesystems, etc.). Files on it *are* bindable - we explicitly permit that in do_loopback(). This stuff lives in fs/nsfs.c now; proc_ns_fget() moved there as well. get_proc_ns() is a macro now (it's simply returning ->i_private; would have been an inline, if not for header ordering headache). proc_ns_inode() is an ex-parrot. The interface used in procfs is ns_get_path(path, task, ops) and ns_get_name(buf, size, task, ops). Dentries and inodes are never hashed; a non-counting reference to dentry is stashed in ns_common (removed by ->d_prune()) and reused by ns_get_path() if present. See ns_get_path()/ns_prune_dentry/nsfs_evict() for details of that mechanism. As the result, proc_ns_follow_link() has stopped poking in nd->path.mnt; it does nd_jump_link() on a consistent <vfsmount,dentry> pair it gets from ns_get_path().

2014-10-24overlay filesystemMiklos Szeredi
Overlayfs allows one, usually read-write, directory tree to be overlaid onto another, read-only directory tree. All modifications go to the upper, writable layer. This type of mechanism is most often used for live CDs but there's a wide variety of other uses. The implementation differs from other "union filesystem" implementations in that after a file is opened all operations go directly to the underlying, lower or upper, filesystems. This simplifies the implementation and allows native performance in these cases. The dentry tree is duplicated from the underlying filesystems, this enables fast cached lookups without adding special support into the VFS. This uses slightly more memory than union mounts, but dentries are relatively small. Currently inodes are duplicated as well, but it is a possible optimization to share inodes for non-directories. Opening non directories results in the open forwarded to the underlying filesystem. This makes the behavior very similar to union mounts (with the same limitations vs. fchmod/fchown on O_RDONLY file descriptors). Usage: mount -t overlayfs overlayfs -olowerdir=/lower,upperdir=/upper/upper,workdir=/upper/work /overlay The following cotributions have been folded into this patch: Neil Brown <neilb@suse.de>: - minimal remount support - use correct seek function for directories - initialise is_real before use - rename ovl_fill_cache to ovl_dir_read Felix Fietkau <nbd@openwrt.org>: - fix a deadlock in ovl_dir_read_merged - fix a deadlock in ovl_remove_whiteouts Erez Zadok <ezk@fsl.cs.sunysb.edu> - fix cleanup after WARN_ON Sedat Dilek <sedat.dilek@googlemail.com> - fix up permission to confirm to new API Robin Dong <hao.bigrat@gmail.com> - fix possible leak in ovl_new_inode - create new inode in ovl_link Andy Whitcroft <apw@canonical.com> - switch to __inode_permission() - copy up i_uid/i_gid from the underlying inode AV: - ovl_copy_up_locked() - dput(ERR_PTR(...)) on two failure exits - ovl_clear_empty() - one failure exit forgetting to do unlock_rename(), lack of check for udir being the parent of upper, dropping and regaining the lock on udir (which would require _another_ check for parent being right). - bogus d_drop() in copyup and rename [fix from your mail] - copyup/remove and copyup/rename races [fix from your mail] - ovl_dir_fsync() leaving ERR_PTR() in ->realfile - ovl_entry_free() is pointless - it's just a kfree_rcu() - fold ovl_do_lookup() into ovl_lookup() - manually assigning ->d_op is wrong.

Called after bumping the refcount, so it won't go away under us. Dropping the refcount is responsibility of the instance. All generic stuff moved to fs/fs_pin.c; the next step will rip all the knowledge of kernel/acct.c from fs/super.c and fs/namespace.c. After that - death to mnt_pin(); it was intended to be usable as generic mechanism for code that wants to attach objects to vfsmount, so that they would not make the sucker busy and would get killed on umount.
