2013-12-11kernfs: s/sysfs_dirent/kernfs_node/ and rename its friends accordinglyTejun Heo
kernfs has just been separated out from sysfs and we're already in full conflict mode. Nothing can make the situation any worse. Let's take the chance to name things properly. This patch performs the following renames. * s/sysfs_elem_dir/kernfs_elem_dir/ * s/sysfs_elem_symlink/kernfs_elem_symlink/ * s/sysfs_elem_attr/kernfs_elem_file/ * s/sysfs_dirent/kernfs_node/ * s/sd/kn/ in kernfs proper * s/parent_sd/parent/ * s/target_sd/target/ * s/dir_sd/parent/ * s/to_sysfs_dirent()/rb_to_kn()/ * misc renames of local vars when they conflict with the above Because md, mic and gpio dig into sysfs details, this patch ends up modifying them. All are sysfs_dirent renames and trivial. While we can avoid these by introducing a dummy wrapping struct sysfs_dirent around kernfs_node, given the limited usage outside kernfs and sysfs proper, I don't think such workaround is called for. This patch is strictly rename only and doesn't introduce any functional difference. - mic / gpio renames were missing. Spotted by kbuild test robot.

2013-12-07kobject: remove kset from sysfs immediately in kset_unregister()Bjorn Helgaas
There's no "unlink from sysfs" interface for ksets, so I think callers of kset_unregister() expect the kset to be removed from sysfs immediately, without waiting for the last reference to be released. This patch makes the sysfs removal happen immediately, so the caller may create a new kset with the same name as soon as kset_unregister() returns. Without this, every caller has to call "kobject_del(&kset->kobj)" first unless it knows it will never create a new kset with the same name. This sometimes shows up on module unload and reload, where the reload fails because it tries to create a kobject with the same name as one from the original load that still exists. CONFIG_DEBUG_KOBJECT_RELEASE=y makes this problem easier to hit. Signed-off-by: Bjorn Helgaas <bhelgaas@google.com> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org>

2013-11-29sysfs, kernfs: introduce kernfs_create_dir[_ns]()Tejun Heo
Introduce kernfs interface to manipulate a directory which takes and returns sysfs_dirents. create_dir() is renamed to kernfs_create_dir_ns() and its argumantes and return value are updated. create_dir() usages are replaced with kernfs_create_dir_ns() and sysfs_create_subdir() usages are replaced with kernfs_create_dir(). Dup warnings are handled explicitly by sysfs users of the kernfs interface. sysfs_enable_ns() is renamed to kernfs_enable_ns(). This patch doesn't introduce any behavior changes. v2: Dummy implementation for !CONFIG_SYSFS updated to return -ENOSYS. v3: kernfs_enable_ns() added. v4: Refreshed on top of "sysfs: drop kobj_ns_type handling, take #2" so that this patch removes sysfs_enable_ns().

2013-11-27sysfs: drop kobj_ns_type handling, take #2Tejun Heo
The way namespace tags are implemented in sysfs is more complicated than necessary. As each tag is a pointer value and required to be non-NULL under a namespace enabled parent, there's no need to record separately what type each tag is. If multiple namespace types are needed, which currently aren't, we can simply compare the tag to a set of allowed tags in the superblock assuming that the tags, being pointers, won't have the same value across multiple types. This patch rips out kobj_ns_type handling from sysfs. sysfs now has an enable switch to turn on namespace under a node. If enabled, all children are required to have non-NULL namespace tags and filtered against the super_block's tag. kobject namespace determination is now performed in lib/kobject.c::create_dir() making sysfs_read_ns_type() unnecessary. The sanity checks are also moved. create_dir() is restructured to ease such addition. This removes most kobject namespace knowledge from sysfs proper which will enable proper separation and layering of sysfs. This is the second try. The first one was cb26a311578e ("sysfs: drop kobj_ns_type handling") which tried to automatically enable namespace if there are children with non-NULL namespace tags; however, it was broken for symlinks as they should inherit the target's tag iff namespace is enabled in the parent. This led to namespace filtering enabled incorrectly for wireless net class devices through phy80211 symlinks and thus network configuration failure. a1212d278c05 ("Revert "sysfs: drop kobj_ns_type handling"") reverted the commit. This shouldn't introduce any behavior changes, for real. v2: Dummy implementation of sysfs_enable_ns() for !CONFIG_SYSFS was missing and caused build failure. Reported by kbuild test robot.

2013-10-03kobject: grab an extra reference on kobject->sd to allow duplicate deletesTejun Heo
sysfs currently has a rather weird behavior regarding removals. A directory removal would delete all files directly under it but wouldn't recurse into subdirectories, which, while a bit inconsistent, seems to make sense at the first glance as each directory is supposedly associated with a kobject and each kobject can take care of the directory deletion; however, this doesn't really hold as we have groups which can be directories without a kobject associated with it and require explicit deletions. We're in the process of separating out sysfs from kboject / driver core and want a consistent behavior. A removal should delete either only the specified node or everything under it. I think it is helpful to support recursive atomic removal and later patches will implement it. Such change means that a sysfs_dirent associated with kobject may be deleted before the kobject itself is removed if one of its ancestor gets removed before it. As sysfs_remove_dir() puts the base ref, we may end up with dangling pointer on descendants. This can be solved by holding an extra reference on the sd from kobject. Acquire an extra reference on the associated sysfs_dirent on directory creation and put it after removal.

2013-09-26kobject: introduce kobj_completionJeff Mahoney
A common way to handle kobject lifetimes in embedded in objects with different lifetime rules is to pair the kobject with a struct completion.

2013-09-26sysfs: drop kobj_ns_type handlingTejun Heo
The way namespace tags are implemented in sysfs is more complicated than necessary. As each tag is a pointer value and required to be non-NULL under a namespace enabled parent, there's no need to record separately what type each tag is or where namespace is enabled. If multiple namespace types are needed, which currently aren't, we can simply compare the tag to a set of allowed tags in the superblock assuming that the tags, being pointers, won't have the same value across multiple types. Also, whether to filter by namespace tag or not can be trivially determined by whether the node has any tagged children or not. This patch rips out kobj_ns_type handling from sysfs. sysfs no longer cares whether specific type of namespace is enabled or not. If a sysfs_dirent has a non-NULL tag, the parent is marked as needing namespace filtering and the value is tested against the allowed set of tags for the superblock (currently only one but increasing this number isn't difficult) and the sysfs_dirent is ignored if it doesn't match. This removes most kobject namespace knowledge from sysfs proper which will enable proper separation and layering of sysfs. The namespace sanity checks in fs/sysfs/dir.c are replaced by the new sanity check in kobject_namespace(). As this is the only place ktype->namespace() is called for sysfs, this doesn't weaken the sanity check significantly. I omitted converting the sanity check in sysfs_do_create_link_sd(). While the check can be shifted to upper layer, mistakes there are well contained and should be easily visible anyway. Signed-off-by: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org> Cc: Eric W.

2013-09-26sysfs: remove ktype->namespace() invocations in directory codeTejun Heo
For some unrecognizable reason, namespace information is communicated to sysfs through ktype->namespace() callback when there's *nothing* which needs the use of a callback. The whole sequence of operations is completely synchronous and sysfs operations simply end up calling back into the layer which just invoked it in order to find out the namespace information, which is completely backwards, obfuscates what's going on and unnecessarily tangles two separate layers. This patch doesn't remove ktype->namespace() but shifts its handling to kobject layer. We probably want to get rid of the callback in the long term. This patch adds an explicit param to sysfs_{create|rename|move}_dir() and renames them to sysfs_{create|rename|move}_dir_ns(), respectively. ktype->namespace() invocations are moved to the calling sites of the above functions. A new helper kboject_namespace() is introduced which directly tests kobj_ns_type_operations->type which should give the same result as testing sysfs_fs_type(parent_sd) and returns @kobj's namespace tag as necessary. kobject_namespace() is extern as it will be used from another file in the following patches. This patch should be an equivalent conversion without any functional difference. Signed-off-by: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org> Cc: Eric W.

2013-08-28sysfs: Restrict mounting sysfsEric W. Biederman
Don't allow mounting sysfs unless the caller has CAP_SYS_ADMIN rights over the net namespace. The principle here is if you create or have capabilities over it you can mount it, otherwise you get to live with what other people have mounted. Instead of testing this with a straight forward ns_capable call, perform this check the long and torturous way with kobject helpers, this keeps direct knowledge of namespaces out of sysfs, and preserves the existing sysfs abstractions.

2013-07-25kobject: delayed kobject release: help find buggy driversRussell King
Implement debugging for kobject release functions. kobjects are reference counted, so the drop of the last reference to them is not predictable. However, the common case is for the last reference to be the kobject's removal from a subsystem, which results in the release function being immediately called. This can hide subtle bugs, which can occur when another thread holds a reference to the kobject at the same time that a kobject is removed. This results in the release method being delayed. In order to make these kinds of problems more visible, the following patch implements a delayed release; this has the effect that the release function will be out of order with respect to the removal of the kobject in the same manner that it would be if a reference was being held. This provides us with an easy way to allow driver writers to debug their drivers and fix otherwise hidden problems.

2013-04-13kobject: fix kset_find_obj() race with concurrent last kobject_put()Linus Torvalds
Anatol Pomozov identified a race condition that hits module unloading and re-loading. To quote Anatol: "This is a race codition that exists between kset_find_obj() and kobject_put(). kset_find_obj() might return kobject that has refcount equal to 0 if this kobject is freeing by kobject_put() in other thread. Here is timeline for the crash in case if kset_find_obj() searches for an object tht nobody holds and other thread is doing kobject_put() on the same kobject: THREAD A (calls kset_find_obj()) THREAD B (calls kobject_put()) splin_lock() atomic_dec_return(kobj->kref), counter gets zero here ... starts kobject cleanup .... spin_lock() // WAIT thread A in kobj_kset_leave() iterate over kset->list atomic_inc(kobj->kref) (counter becomes 1) spin_unlock() spin_lock() // taken // it does not know that thread A increased counter so it remove obj from list spin_unlock() vfree(module) // frees module object with containing kobj // kobj points to freed memory area!! kobject_put(kobj) // OOPS!!!! The race above happens because module.c tries to use kset_find_obj() when somebody unloads module. The module.c code was introduced in commit 6494a93d55fa" Anatol supplied a patch specific for module.c that worked around the problem by simply not using kset_find_obj() at all, but rather than make a local band-aid, this just fixes kset_find_obj() to be thread-safe using the proper model of refusing the get a new reference if the refcount has already dropped to zero. See examples of this proper refcount handling not only in the kref documentation, but in various other equivalent uses of this pattern by grepping for atomic_inc_not_zero(). [ Side note: the module race does indicate that module loading and unloading is not properly serialized wrt sysfs information using the module mutex. That may require further thought, but this is the correct fix at the kobject layer regardless. ] Reported-analyzed-and-tested-by: Anatol Pomozov <anatol.pomozov@gmail.com> Cc: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org> Cc: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk> Cc: stable@vger.kernel.org Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

* new refcount in struct net, controlling actual freeing of the memory * new method in kobj_ns_type_operations (->drop_ns()) * ->current_ns() semantics change - it's supposed to be followed by corresponding ->drop_ns(). For struct net in case of CONFIG_NET_NS it bumps the new refcount; net_drop_ns() decrements it and calls net_free() if the last reference has been dropped. Method renamed to ->grab_current_ns(). * old net_free() callers call net_drop_ns() instead. * sysfs_exit_ns() is gone, along with a large part of callchain leading to it; now that the references stored in ->ns[...] stay valid we do not need to hunt them down and replace them with NULL. That fixes problems in sysfs_lookup() and sysfs_readdir(), along with getting rid of sb->s_instances abuse. Note that struct net *shutdown* logics has not changed - net_cleanup() is called exactly when it used to be called. The only thing postponed by having a sysfs instance refering to that struct net is actual freeing of memory occupied by struct net. Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>

For directories that should show different contents depending on the context such as /sys/class/net/, and /sys/devices/virtual/net/ this tag field is used to specify the context in which those directories should be visible. Effectively this is the same as creating multiple distinct directories with the same name but internally to sysfs the result is nicer. I am calling the concept of a single directory that looks like multiple directories all at the same path in the filesystem tagged directories. For the networking namespace the set of directories whose contents I need to filter with tags can depend on the presence or absence of hotplug hardware or which modules are currently loaded. Which means I need a simple race free way to setup those directories as tagged. To achieve a reace free design all tagged directories are created and managed by sysfs itself. Users of this interface: - define a type in the sysfs_tag_type enumeration. - call sysfs_register_ns_types with the type and it's operations - sysfs_exit_ns when an individual tag is no longer valid - Implement mount_ns() which returns the ns of the calling process so we can attach it to a sysfs superblock. - Implement ktype.namespace() which returns the ns of a syfs kobject. Everything else is left up to sysfs and the driver layer. For the network namespace mount_ns and namespace() are essentially one line functions, and look to remain that. Tags are currently represented a const void * pointers as that is both generic, prevides enough information for equality comparisons, and is trivial to create for current users, as it is just the existing namespace pointer. The work needed in sysfs is more extensive. At each directory or symlink creating I need to check if the directory it is being created in is a tagged directory and if so generate the appropriate tag to place on the sysfs_dirent. Likewise at each symlink or directory removal I need to check if the sysfs directory it is being removed from is a tagged directory and if so figure out which tag goes along with the name I am deleting. Currently only directories which hold kobjects, and symlinks are supported. There is not enough information in the current file attribute interfaces to give us anything to discriminate on which makes it useless, and there are no potential users which makes it an uninteresting problem to solve.

Constify struct sysfs_ops. This is part of the ops structure constification effort started by Arjan van de Ven et al. Benefits of this constification: * prevents modification of data that is shared (referenced) by many other structure instances at runtime * detects/prevents accidental (but not intentional) modification attempts on archs that enforce read-only kernel data at runtime * potentially better optimized code as the compiler can assume that the const data cannot be changed * the compiler/linker move const data into .rodata and therefore exclude them from false sharing Signed-off-by: Emese Revfy <re.emese@gmail.com> Acked-by: David Teigland <teigland@redhat.com> Acked-by: Matt Domsch <Matt_Domsch@dell.com> Acked-by: Maciej Sosnowski <maciej.sosnowski@intel.com> Acked-by: Hans J.

2009-04-20driver: dont update dev_name via device_add pathKay Sievers
notice one system /proc/iomem some entries missed the name for pci_devices it turns that dev->dev.kobj name is changed after device_add. for pci code: via acpi_pci_root_driver.ops.add (aka acpi_pci_root_add) ==> pci_acpi_scan_root is used to scan pci bus/device, and at the same time we read the resource for pci_dev in the pci_read_bases, we have res->name = pci_name(pci_dev); pci_name is calling dev_name. later via acpi_pci_root_driver.ops.start (aka acpi_pci_root_start) ==> pci_bus_add_device to add all pci_dev in kobj tree. pci_bus_add_device will call device_add. actually in device_add /* first, register with generic layer. */ error = kobject_add(&dev->kobj, dev->kobj.parent, "%s", dev_name(dev)); if (error) goto Error; will get one new name for that kobj, old name is freed.

2008-10-16kobject: Fix kobject_rename and !CONFIG_SYSFSEric W. Biederman
When looking at kobject_rename I found two bugs with that exist when sysfs support is disabled in the kernel. kobject_rename does not change the name on the kobject when sysfs support is not compiled in. kobject_rename without locking attempts to check the validity of a rename operation, which the kobject layer simply does not have the infrastructure to do. This patch documents the previously unstated requirement of kobject_rename that is the responsibility of the caller to provide mutual exclusion and to be certain that the new_name for the kobject is valid. This patch modifies sysfs_rename_dir in !CONFIG_SYSFS case to call kobject_set_name to actually change the kobject_name. This patch removes the bogus and misleading check in kobject_rename that attempts to see if a rename is valid. The check is bogus because we do not have the proper locking. The check is misleading because it looks like we can and do perform checking at the kobject level that we don't. Signed-off-by: Eric W.
