2011-04-04kemleak-test: build as module onlyDaniel Baluta
mm/kmemleak-test.c is used to provide an example of how kmemleak tool works. Memory is leaked at module unload-time, so building the test in kernel (Y) makes the leaks impossible and the test useless. Qualify DEBUG_KMEMLEAK_TEST config symbol with "depends on m", to restrict module-only building.

NOTE! This merge commit was created to fix compilation error. The block tree was merged upstream and removed the 'elv_queue_empty()' function which the new 'mtdswap' driver is using. So a simple merge of the mtd tree with upstream does not compile. And the mtd tree has already be published, so re-basing it is not an option. To fix this unfortunate situation, I had to merge upstream into the mtd-2.6.git tree without committing, put the fixup patch on top of this, and then commit this. The result is that we do not have commits which do not compile. In other words, this merge commit "merges" 3 things: the MTD tree, the upstream tree, and the fixup patch.
2011-03-24lib, arch: add filter argument to show_mem and fix private implementationsDavid Rientjes
Commit ddd588b5dd55 ("oom: suppress nodes that are not allowed from meminfo on oom kill") moved lib/show_mem.o out of lib/lib.a, which resulted in build warnings on all architectures that implement their own versions of show_mem(): lib/lib.a(show_mem.o): In function `show_mem': show_mem.c:(.text+0x1f4): multiple definition of `show_mem' arch/sparc/mm/built-in.o:(.text+0xd70): first defined here The fix is to remove __show_mem() and add its argument to show_mem() in all implementations to prevent this breakage. Architectures that implement their own show_mem() actually don't do anything with the argument yet, but they could be made to filter nodes that aren't allowed in the current context in the future just like the generic implementation.

2011-03-24vsprintf: Introduce %pB format specifierNamhyung Kim
The %pB format specifier is for stack backtrace. Its handler sprint_backtrace() does symbol lookup using (address-1) to ensure the address will not point outside of the function. If there is a tail-call to the function marked "noreturn", gcc optimized out the code after the call then causes saved return address points outside of the function (i.e. the start of the next function), so pollutes call trace somewhat. This patch adds the %pB printk mechanism that allows architecture call-trace printout functions to improve backtrace printouts.

2011-03-22zlib: slim down zlib_deflate() workspace when possibleJim Keniston
Instead of always creating a huge (268K) deflate_workspace with the maximum compression parameters (windowBits=15, memLevel=8), allow the caller to obtain a smaller workspace by specifying smaller parameter values. For example, when capturing oops and panic reports to a medium with limited capacity, such as NVRAM, compression may be the only way to capture the whole report. In this case, a small workspace (24K works fine) is a win, whether you allocate the workspace when you need it (i.e., during an oops or panic) or at boot time. I've verified that this patch works with all accepted values of windowBits (positive and negative), memLevel, and compression level.

2011-03-22kstrto*: converting strings to integers done (hopefully) rightAlexey Dobriyan
1. simple_strto*() do not contain overflow checks and crufty, libc way to indicate failure. 2. strict_strto*() also do not have overflow checks but the name and comments pretend they do. 3. Both families have only "long long" and "long" variants, but users want strtou8() 4. Both "simple" and "strict" prefixes are wrong: Simple doesn't exactly say what's so simple, strict should not exist because conversion should be strict by default. The solution is to use "k" prefix and add convertors for more types. Enter kstrtoull() kstrtoll() kstrtoul() kstrtol() kstrtouint() kstrtoint() kstrtou64() kstrtos64() kstrtou32() kstrtos32() kstrtou16() kstrtos16() kstrtou8() kstrtos8() Include runtime testsuite (somewhat incomplete) as well. strict_strto*() become deprecated, stubbed to kstrto*() and eventually will be removed altogether. Use kstrto*() in code today! Note: on some archs _kstrtoul() and _kstrtol() are left in tree, even if they'll be unused at runtime. This is temporarily solution, because I don't want to hardcode list of archs where these functions aren't needed. Current solution with sizeof() and __alignof__ at least always works.

2011-03-22printk: use %pK for /proc/kallsyms and /proc/modulesKees Cook
In an effort to reduce kernel address leaks that might be used to help target kernel privilege escalation exploits, this patch uses %pK when displaying addresses in /proc/kallsyms, /proc/modules, and /sys/module/*/sections/*. Note that this changes %x to %p, so some legitimately 0 values in /proc/kallsyms would have changed from 00000000 to "(null)". To avoid this, "(null)" is not used when using the "K" format. Anything that was already successfully parsing "(null)" in addition to full hex digits should have no problem with this change. (Thanks to Joe Perches for the suggestion.) Due to the %x to %p, "void *" casts are needed since these addresses are already "unsigned long" everywhere internally, due to their starting life as ELF section offsets.

2011-03-22kernel/watchdog.c: allow hardlockup to panic by defaultDon Zickus
When a cpu is considered stuck, instead of limping along and just printing a warning, it is sometimes preferred to just panic, let kdump capture the vmcore and reboot. This gets the machine back into a stable state quickly while saving the info that got it into a stuck state to begin with. Add a Kconfig option to allow users to set the hardlockup to panic by default. Also add in a 'nmi_watchdog=nopanic' to override this.

2011-03-22oom: suppress nodes that are not allowed from meminfo on oom killDavid Rientjes
The oom killer is extremely verbose for machines with a large number of cpus and/or nodes. This verbosity can often be harmful if it causes other important messages to be scrolled from the kernel log and incurs a signicant time delay, specifically for kernels with CONFIG_NODES_SHIFT > 8. This patch causes only memory information to be displayed for nodes that are allowed by current's cpuset when dumping the VM state. Information for all other nodes is irrelevant to the oom condition; we don't care if there's an abundance of memory elsewhere if we can't access it. This only affects the behavior of dumping memory information when an oom is triggered. Other dumps, such as for sysrq+m, still display the unfiltered form when using the existing show_mem() interface. Additionally, the per-cpu pageset statistics are extremely verbose in oom killer output, so it is now suppressed. This removes nodes_weight(current->mems_allowed) * (1 + nr_cpus) lines from the oom killer output. Callers may use __show_mem(SHOW_MEM_FILTER_NODES) to filter disallowed nodes.

2011-03-11lib: add shared BCH ECC libraryIvan Djelic
This is a new software BCH encoding/decoding library, similar to the shared Reed-Solomon library. Binary BCH (Bose-Chaudhuri-Hocquenghem) codes are widely used to correct errors in NAND flash devices requiring more than 1-bit ecc correction; they are generally better suited for NAND flash than RS codes because NAND bit errors do not occur in bursts. Latest SLC NAND devices typically require at least 4-bit ecc protection per 512 bytes block. This library provides software encoding/decoding, but may also be used with ASIC/SoC hardware BCH engines to perform error correction. It is being currently used for this purpose on an OMAP3630 board (4bit/8bit HW BCH). It has also been used to decode raw dumps of NAND devices with on-die BCH ecc engines (e.g. Micron 4bit ecc SLC devices). Latest NAND devices (including SLC) can exhibit high error rates (typically a dozen or more bitflips per hour during stress tests); in order to minimize the performance impact of error correction, this library implements recently developed algorithms for fast polynomial root finding (see bch.c header for details) instead of the traditional exhaustive Chien root search; a few performance figures are provided below: Platform: arm926ejs @ 468 MHz, 32 KiB icache, 16 KiB dcache BCH ecc : 4-bit per 512 bytes Encoding average throughput: 250 Mbits/s Error correction time (compared with Chien search): average worst average (Chien) worst (Chien) ---------------------------------------------------------- 1 bit 8.5 µs 11 µs 200 µs 383 µs 2 bit 9.7 µs 12.5 µs 477 µs 728 µs 3 bit 18.1 µs 20.6 µs 758 µs 1010 µs 4 bit 19.5 µs 23 µs 1028 µs 1280 µs In the above figures, "worst" is meant in terms of error pattern, not in terms of cache miss / page faults effects (not taken into account here). The library has been extensively tested on the following platforms: x86, x86_64, arm926ejs, omap3630, qemu-ppc64, qemu-mips.

2011-03-08debugobjects: Add hint for better object identificationStanislaw Gruszka
In complex subsystems like mac80211 structures can contain several timers and work structs, so identifying a specific instance from the call trace and object type output of debugobjects can be hard. Allow the subsystems which support debugobjects to provide a hint function. This function returns a pointer to a kernel address (preferrably the objects callback function) which is printed along with the debugobjects type. Add hint methods for timer_list, work_struct and hrtimer.

2011-02-25swiotlb: fix wrong panicFUJITA Tomonori
swiotlb's map_page wrongly calls panic() when it can't find a buffer fit for device's dma mask. It should return an error instead. Devices with an odd dma mask (i.e. under 4G) like b44 network card hit this bug (the system crashes): http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=129648943830106&w=2 If swiotlb returns an error, b44 driver can use the own bouncing mechanism.

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>
