2013-12-08lib/scatterlist: export sg_miter_skip()Ming Lei
sg_copy_buffer() can't meet demand for some drrivers(such usb mass storage), so we have to use the sg_miter_* APIs to access sg buffer, then need export sg_miter_skip() for these drivers. The API is needed for converting to sg_miter_* APIs in USB storage driver for accessing sg buffer.

2013-10-31lib/scatterlist.c: don't flush_kernel_dcache_page on slab pageMing Lei
Commit b1adaf65ba03 ("[SCSI] block: add sg buffer copy helper functions") introduces two sg buffer copy helpers, and calls flush_kernel_dcache_page() on pages in SG list after these pages are written to. Unfortunately, the commit may introduce a potential bug: - Before sending some SCSI commands, kmalloc() buffer may be passed to block layper, so flush_kernel_dcache_page() can see a slab page finally - According to cachetlb.txt, flush_kernel_dcache_page() is only called on "a user page", which surely can't be a slab page. - ARCH's implementation of flush_kernel_dcache_page() may use page mapping information to do optimization so page_mapping() will see the slab page, then VM_BUG_ON() is triggered. Aaro Koskinen reported the bug on ARM/kirkwood when DEBUG_VM is enabled, and this patch fixes the bug by adding test of '!PageSlab(miter->page)' before calling flush_kernel_dcache_page().

2013-07-09lib/scatterlist: factor out sg_miter_get_next_page() from sg_miter_next()Akinobu Mita
This patchset introduces sg_pcopy_from_buffer() and sg_pcopy_to_buffer(), which copy data between a linear buffer and an SG list. The only difference between sg_pcopy_{from,to}_buffer() and sg_copy_{from,to}_buffer() is an additional argument that specifies the number of bytes to skip the SG list before copying. The main reason for introducing these functions is to fix a problem in scsi_debug module. And there is a local function in crypto/talitos module, which can be replaced by sg_pcopy_to_buffer(). This patch: sg_miter_get_next_page() is used to proceed page iterator to the next page if necessary, and will be used to implement the variants of sg_copy_{from,to}_buffer() later.

2013-03-27lib/scatterlist: sg_page_iter: support sg lists w/o backing pagesImre Deak
The i915 driver uses sg lists for memory without backing 'struct page' pages, similarly to other IO memory regions, setting only the DMA address for these. It does this, so that it can program the HW MMU tables in a uniform way both for sg lists with and without backing pages. Without a valid page pointer we can't call nth_page to get the current page in __sg_page_iter_next, so add a helper that relevant users can call separately. Also add a helper to get the DMA address of the current page (idea from Daniel). Convert all places in i915, to use the new API.

2012-07-30scatterlist: add sg_alloc_table_from_pages functionTomasz Stanislawski
This patch adds a new constructor for an sg table. The table is constructed from an array of struct pages. All contiguous chunks of the pages are merged into a single sg nodes. A user may provide an offset and a size of a buffer if the buffer is not page-aligned. The function is dedicated for DMABUF exporters which often perform conversion from an page array to a scatterlist. Moreover the scatterlist should be squashed in order to save memory and to speed-up the process of DMA mapping using dma_map_sg.

When alloc fails, free_table is being called. Depending on the number of bytes requested, we determine if we are going to call _get_free_page() or kmalloc(). When alloc fails, our math is wrong (due to sg_size - 1), and the last buffer is wrongfully assumed to have been allocated by kmalloc. Hence, kfree gets called and a panic occurs.

kmemleak ignores page_alloc() and so believes the final sub-page allocation using the plain kmalloc is decoupled and lost. This leads to lots of false-positives with code that uses scatterlists. The options seem to be either to tell kmemleak that the kmalloc is not leaked or to notify kmemleak of the page allocations.

2010-03-30include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking ↵Tejun Heo
implicit slab.h inclusion from percpu.h percpu.h is included by sched.h and module.h and thus ends up being included when building most .c files. percpu.h includes slab.h which in turn includes gfp.h making everything defined by the two files universally available and complicating inclusion dependencies. percpu.h -> slab.h dependency is about to be removed. Prepare for this change by updating users of gfp and slab facilities include those headers directly instead of assuming availability. As this conversion needs to touch large number of source files, the following script is used as the basis of conversion. http://userweb.kernel.org/~tj/misc/slabh-sweep.py The script does the followings. * Scan files for gfp and slab usages and update includes such that only the necessary includes are there. ie. if only gfp is used, gfp.h, if slab is used, slab.h. * When the script inserts a new include, it looks at the include blocks and try to put the new include such that its order conforms to its surrounding. It's put in the include block which contains core kernel includes, in the same order that the rest are ordered - alphabetical, Christmas tree, rev-Xmas-tree or at the end if there doesn't seem to be any matching order. * If the script can't find a place to put a new include (mostly because the file doesn't have fitting include block), it prints out an error message indicating which .h file needs to be added to the file. The conversion was done in the following steps. 1. The initial automatic conversion of all .c files updated slightly over 4000 files, deleting around 700 includes and adding ~480 gfp.h and ~3000 slab.h inclusions. The script emitted errors for ~400 files. 2. Each error was manually checked. Some didn't need the inclusion, some needed manual addition while adding it to implementation .h or embedding .c file was more appropriate for others. This step added inclusions to around 150 files. 3. The script was run again and the output was compared to the edits from #2 to make sure no file was left behind. 4. Several build tests were done and a couple of problems were fixed. e.g. lib/decompress_*.c used malloc/free() wrappers around slab APIs requiring slab.h to be added manually. 5. The script was run on all .h files but without automatically editing them as sprinkling gfp.h and slab.h inclusions around .h files could easily lead to inclusion dependency hell. Most gfp.h inclusion directives were ignored as stuff from gfp.h was usually wildly available and often used in preprocessor macros. Each slab.h inclusion directive was examined and added manually as necessary. 6. percpu.h was updated not to include slab.h. 7. Build test were done on the following configurations and failures were fixed. CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL was turned off for all tests (as my distributed build env didn't work with gcov compiles) and a few more options had to be turned off depending on archs to make things build (like ipr on powerpc/64 which failed due to missing writeq). * x86 and x86_64 UP and SMP allmodconfig and a custom test config. * powerpc and powerpc64 SMP allmodconfig * sparc and sparc64 SMP allmodconfig * ia64 SMP allmodconfig * s390 SMP allmodconfig * alpha SMP allmodconfig * um on x86_64 SMP allmodconfig 8. percpu.h modifications were reverted so that it could be applied as a separate patch and serve as bisection point. Given the fact that I had only a couple of failures from tests on step 6, I'm fairly confident about the coverage of this conversion patch. If there is a breakage, it's likely to be something in one of the arch headers which should be easily discoverable easily on most builds of the specific arch.

2008-07-23sg: reimplement sg mapping iteratorTejun Heo
This is alternative implementation of sg content iterator introduced by commit 83e7d317... from Pierre Ossman in next-20080716. As there's already an sg iterator which iterates over sg entries themselves, name this sg_mapping_iterator. Slightly edited description from the original implementation follows. Iteration over a sg list is not that trivial when you take into account that memory pages might have to be mapped before being used. Unfortunately, that means that some parts of the kernel restrict themselves to directly accesible memory just to not have to deal with the mess. This patch adds a simple iterator system that allows any code to easily traverse an sg list and not have to deal with all the details. The user can decide to consume part of the iteration. Also, iteration can be stopped and resumed later if releasing the kmap between iteration steps is necessary. These features are useful to implement piecemeal sg copying for interrupt drive PIO for example. Signed-off-by: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org> Signed-off-by: Pierre Ossman <drzeus@drzeus.cx>
