2012-07-06rcu: Fix broken strings in RCU's source code.Paul E. McKenney
Although the C language allows you to break strings across lines, doing this makes it hard for people to find the Linux kernel code corresponding to a given console message. This commit therefore fixes broken strings throughout RCU's source code. Suggested-by: Josh Triplett <josh@joshtriplett.org> Suggested-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@kernel.org> Signed-off-by: Paul E. McKenney <paulmck@linux.vnet.ibm.com>
2012-05-29list_debug: WARN for adding something already in the listChris Metcalf
We were bitten by this at one point and added an additional sanity test for DEBUG_LIST. You can't validly add a list_head to a list where either prev or next is the same as the thing you're adding.

2012-04-24rcu: List-debug variants of rcu list routines.Dave Jones
* Make __list_add_rcu check the next->prev and prev->next pointers just like __list_add does. * Make list_del_rcu use __list_del_entry, which does the same checking at deletion time. Has been running for a week here without anything being tripped up, but it seems worth adding for completeness just in case something ever does corrupt those lists.

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/paulg/linux Pull cleanup of fs/ and lib/ users of module.h from Paul Gortmaker: "Fix up files in fs/ and lib/ dirs to only use module.h if they really need it. These are trivial in scope vs the work done previously. We now have things where any few remaining cleanups can be farmed out to arch or subsystem maintainers, and I have done so when possible. What is remaining here represents the bits that don't clearly lie within a single arch/subsystem boundary, like the fs dir and the lib dir. Some duplicate includes arising from overlapping fixes from independent subsystem maintainer submissions are also quashed." Fix up trivial conflicts due to clashes with other include file cleanups (including some due to the previous bug.h cleanup pull). * tag 'module-for-3.4' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/paulg/linux: lib: reduce the use of module.h wherever possible fs: reduce the use of module.h wherever possible includecheck: delete any duplicate instances of module.h
2012-03-07lib: reduce the use of module.h wherever possiblePaul Gortmaker
For files only using THIS_MODULE and/or EXPORT_SYMBOL, map them onto including export.h -- or if the file isn't even using those, then just delete the include. Fix up any implicit include dependencies that were being masked by module.h along the way. Signed-off-by: Paul Gortmaker <paul.gortmaker@windriver.com>
2012-02-29bug.h: add include of it to various implicit C usersPaul Gortmaker
With bug.h currently living right in linux/kernel.h there are files that use BUG_ON and friends but are not including the header explicitly. Fix them up so we can remove the presence in kernel.h file. Signed-off-by: Paul Gortmaker <paul.gortmaker@windriver.com>
2012-02-28lib: fix implicit users of kernel.h for TAINT_WARNPaul Gortmaker
A pending header cleanup will cause this to show up as: lib/average.c:38: error: 'TAINT_WARN' undeclared (first use in this function) lib/list_debug.c:24: error: 'TAINT_WARN' undeclared (first use in this function) and TAINT_WARN comes from include/linux/kernel.h file.

2011-02-18Expand CONFIG_DEBUG_LIST to several other list operationsLinus Torvalds
When list debugging is enabled, we aim to readably show list corruption errors, and the basic list_add/list_del operations end up having extra debugging code in them to do some basic validation of the list entries. However, "list_del_init()" and "list_move[_tail]()" ended up avoiding the debug code due to how they were written. This fixes that. So the _next_ time we have list_move() problems with stale list entries, we'll hopefully have an easier time finding them.. Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2010-08-09list debugging: warn when deleting a deleted entryBaruch Siach
Use the magic LIST_POISON* values to detect an incorrect use of list_del on a deleted entry. This DEBUG_LIST specific warning is easier to understand than the generic Oops message caused by LIST_POISON dereference.

2008-07-25list debugging: use WARN() instead of BUG()Dave Jones
Arjan noted that the list_head debugging is BUG'ing when it detects corruption. By causing the box to panic immediately, we're possibly losing some bug reports. Changing this to a WARN() should mean we at the least start seeing reports collected at kerneloops.org Signed-off-by: Dave Jones <davej@redhat.com> Cc: Matthew Wilcox <matthew@wil.cx> Cc: Arjan van de Ven <arjan@infradead.org> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2008-07-25lists: remove a redundant conditional definition of list_add()Robert P. J. Day
Remove the conditional surrounding the definition of list_add() from list.h since, if you define CONFIG_DEBUG_LIST, the definition you will subsequently pick up from lib/list_debug.c will be absolutely identical, at which point you can remove that redundant definition from list_debug.c as well.

2006-12-07[PATCH] More list debugging contextDave Jones
Print the other (hopefully) known good pointer when list_head debugging too, which may yield additional clues. Also fix for 80-columns to win akpm brownie points.

2006-10-01[PATCH] list_del-debug fixAndrew Morton

2006-09-29[PATCH] list_del debug checkManfred Spraul
A list_del() debugging check. Has been in -mm for years. Dave moved list_del() out-of-line in the debug case, so this is now suitable for mainline. Cc: Dave Jones <davej@codemonkey.org.uk> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
