2013-04-30nilfs2: fix issue with flush kernel thread after remount in RO mode because ↵Vyacheslav Dubeyko
of driver's internal error or metadata corruption The NILFS2 driver remounts itself in RO mode in the case of discovering metadata corruption (for example, discovering a broken bmap). But usually, this takes place when there have been file system operations before remounting in RO mode. Thereby, NILFS2 driver can be in RO mode with presence of dirty pages in modified inodes' address spaces. It results in flush kernel thread's infinite trying to flush dirty pages in RO mode. As a result, it is possible to see such side effects as: (1) flush kernel thread occupies 50% - 99% of CPU time; (2) system can't be shutdowned without manual power switch off. SYMPTOMS: (1) System log contains error message: "Remounting filesystem read-only". (2) The flush kernel thread occupies 50% - 99% of CPU time. (3) The system can't be shutdowned without manual power switch off. REPRODUCTION PATH: (1) Create volume group with name "unencrypted" by means of vgcreate utility. (2) Run script (prepared by Anthony Doggett <Anthony2486@interfaces.org.uk>): ----------------[BEGIN SCRIPT]-------------------- #!/bin/bash VG=unencrypted #apt-get install nilfs-tools darcs lvcreate --size 2G --name ntest $VG mkfs.nilfs2 -b 1024 -B 8192 /dev/mapper/$VG-ntest mkdir /var/tmp/n mkdir /var/tmp/n/ntest mount /dev/mapper/$VG-ntest /var/tmp/n/ntest mkdir /var/tmp/n/ntest/thedir cd /var/tmp/n/ntest/thedir sleep 2 date darcs init sleep 2 dmesg|tail -n 5 date darcs whatsnew || true date sleep 2 dmesg|tail -n 5 ----------------[END SCRIPT]-------------------- (3) Try to shutdown the system. REPRODUCIBILITY: 100% FIX: This patch implements checking mount state of NILFS2 driver in nilfs_writepage(), nilfs_writepages() and nilfs_mdt_write_page() methods. If it is detected the RO mount state then all dirty pages are simply discarded with warning messages is written in system log.

2011-02-23mm: prevent concurrent unmap_mapping_range() on the same inodeMiklos Szeredi
Michael Leun reported that running parallel opens on a fuse filesystem can trigger a "kernel BUG at mm/truncate.c:475" Gurudas Pai reported the same bug on NFS. The reason is, unmap_mapping_range() is not prepared for more than one concurrent invocation per inode. For example: thread1: going through a big range, stops in the middle of a vma and stores the restart address in vm_truncate_count. thread2: comes in with a small (e.g. single page) unmap request on the same vma, somewhere before restart_address, finds that the vma was already unmapped up to the restart address and happily returns without doing anything. Another scenario would be two big unmap requests, both having to restart the unmapping and each one setting vm_truncate_count to its own value. This could go on forever without any of them being able to finish. Truncate and hole punching already serialize with i_mutex. Other callers of unmap_mapping_range() do not, and it's difficult to get i_mutex protection for all callers. In particular ->d_revalidate(), which calls invalidate_inode_pages2_range() in fuse, may be called with or without i_mutex. This patch adds a new mutex to 'struct address_space' to prevent running multiple concurrent unmap_mapping_range() on the same mapping. [ We'll hopefully get rid of all this with the upcoming mm preemptibility series by Peter Zijlstra, the "mm: Remove i_mmap_mutex lockbreak" patch in particular.

2010-10-23nilfs2: add routines to redirect access to buffers of DAT fileRyusuke Konishi
During garbage collection (GC), DAT file, which converts virtual block number to real block number, may return disk block number that is not yet written to the device. To avoid access to unwritten blocks, the current implementation stores changes to the caches of GCDAT during GC and atomically commit the changes into the DAT file after they are written to the device. This patch, instead, adds a function that makes a copy of specified buffer and stores it in nilfs_shadow_map, and a function to get the backup copy as needed (nilfs_mdt_freeze_buffer and nilfs_mdt_get_frozen_buffer respectively). Before DAT changes block number in an entry block, it makes a copy and redirect access to the buffer so that address conversion function (i.e. nilfs_dat_translate) refers to the old address saved in the copy. This patch gives requisites for such redirection. Signed-off-by: Ryusuke Konishi <konishi.ryusuke@lab.ntt.co.jp>
2010-10-23nilfs2: add routines to roll back state of DAT fileRyusuke Konishi
This adds optional function to metadata files which makes a copy of bmap, page caches, and b-tree node cache, and rolls back to the copy as needed. This enhancement is intended to displace gcdat inode that provides a similar function in a different way. In this patch, nilfs_shadow_map structure is added to store a copy of the foregoing states. nilfs_mdt_setup_shadow_map relates this structure to a metadata file. And, nilfs_mdt_save_to_shadow_map() and nilfs_mdt_restore_from_shadow_map() provides save and restore functions respectively. Finally, nilfs_mdt_clear_shadow_map() clears states of nilfs_shadow_map. The copy of b-tree node cache and page cache is made by duplicating only dirty pages into corresponding caches in nilfs_shadow_map. Their restoration is done by clearing dirty pages from original caches and by copying dirty pages back from nilfs_shadow_map. Signed-off-by: Ryusuke Konishi <konishi.ryusuke@lab.ntt.co.jp>

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.

2009-11-20nilfs2: add cache framework for persistent object allocatorRyusuke Konishi
This adds setup and cleanup routines of the persistent object allocator cache. According to ftrace analyses, accessing buffers of the DAT file suffers indispensable overhead many times. To mitigate the overhead, This introduce cache framework for the persistent object allocator (palloc) which the DAT file and ifile are using. struct nilfs_palloc_cache represents the cache object per metadata file using palloc. The cache is initialized through nilfs_palloc_setup_cache() and destroyed by nilfs_palloc_destroy_cache(); callers of the former function will be added to individual allocators of DAT and ifile on successive patches. nilfs_palloc_destroy_cache() will be called from nilfs_mdt_destroy() if the cache is attached to a metadata file. A companion function nilfs_palloc_clear_cache() is provided to allow releasing buffer head references independently with the cleanup task. This adjunctive function will be used before invalidating pages of metadata file with the cache. Signed-off-by: Ryusuke Konishi <konishi.ryusuke@lab.ntt.co.jp>

2009-09-14nilfs2: always lookup disk block address before reading metadata blockRyusuke Konishi
The current metadata file code skips disk address lookup for its data block if the buffer has a mapped flag. This has a potential risk to cause read request to be performed against the stale block address that GC moved, and it may lead to meta data corruption. The mapped flag is safe if the buffer has an uptodate flag, otherwise it may prevent necessary update of disk address in the next read. This will avoid the potential problem by ensuring disk address lookup before reading metadata block even for buffers with the mapped flag.

2009-04-07nilfs2: avoid double error caused by nilfs_transaction_endRyusuke Konishi
Pekka Enberg pointed out that double error handlings found after nilfs_transaction_end() can be avoided by separating abort operation: OK, I don't understand this. The only way nilfs_transaction_end() can fail is if we have NILFS_TI_SYNC set and we fail to construct the segment. But why do we want to construct a segment if we don't commit? I guess what I'm asking is why don't we have a separate nilfs_transaction_abort() function that can't fail for the erroneous case to avoid this double error value tracking thing? This does the separation and renames nilfs_transaction_end() to nilfs_transaction_commit() for clarification. Since, some calls of these functions were used just for exclusion control against the segment constructor, they are replaced with semaphore operations.
