2008-05-25Kconfig: introduce ARCH_DEFCONFIG to DEFCONFIG_LISTSam Ravnborg
init/Kconfig contains a list of configs that are searched for if 'make *config' are used with no .config present. Extend this list to look at the config identified by ARCH_DEFCONFIG. With this change we now try the defconfig targets last.

2008-05-15initcalls: Fix m68k build and possible buffer overflowCyrill Gorcunov
This patch fixes a build bug on m68k - gcc decides to emit a call to the strlen library function, which we don't implement. More importantly - my previous patch "init: don't lose initcall return values" (commit e662e1cfd434aa234b72fbc781f1d70211cb785b) had introduced potential buffer overflow by wrong calculation of string accumulator size. Use strlcat() instead, fixing both bugs. Many thanks Andreas Schwab and Geert Uytterhoeven for helping to catch and fix the bug.

2008-05-15Clean up 'print_fn_descriptor_symbol()' typesLinus Torvalds

2008-05-09module: don't ignore vermagic string if module doesn't have modversionsRusty Russell
Linus found a logic bug: we ignore the version number in a module's vermagic string if we have CONFIG_MODVERSIONS set, but modversions also lets through a module with no __versions section for modprobe --force (with tainting, but still). We should only ignore the start of the vermagic string if the module actually *has* crcs to check. Rather than (say) having an entertaining hissy fit and creating a config option to work around the buggy code.

2008-05-04Make forced module loading optionalLinus Torvalds
The kernel module loader used to be much too happy to allow loading of modules for the wrong kernel version by default. For example, if you had MODVERSIONS enabled, but tried to load a module with no version info, it would happily load it and taint the kernel - whether it was likely to actually work or not! Generally, such forced module loading should be considered a really really bad idea, so make it conditional on a new config option (MODULE_FORCE_LOAD), and make it default to off. If somebody really wants to force module loads, that's their problem, but we should not encourage it. Especially as it happened to me by mistake (ie regular unversioned Fedora modules getting loaded) causing lots of strange behavior. Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

2008-04-30infrastructure to debug (dynamic) objectsThomas Gleixner
We can see an ever repeating problem pattern with objects of any kind in the kernel: 1) freeing of active objects 2) reinitialization of active objects Both problems can be hard to debug because the crash happens at a point where we have no chance to decode the root cause anymore. One problem spot are kernel timers, where the detection of the problem often happens in interrupt context and usually causes the machine to panic. While working on a timer related bug report I had to hack specialized code into the timer subsystem to get a reasonable hint for the root cause. This debug hack was fine for temporary use, but far from a mergeable solution due to the intrusiveness into the timer code. The code further lacked the ability to detect and report the root cause instantly and keep the system operational. Keeping the system operational is important to get hold of the debug information without special debugging aids like serial consoles and special knowledge of the bug reporter. The problems described above are not restricted to timers, but timers tend to expose it usually in a full system crash. Other objects are less explosive, but the symptoms caused by such mistakes can be even harder to debug. Instead of creating specialized debugging code for the timer subsystem a generic infrastructure is created which allows developers to verify their code and provides an easy to enable debug facility for users in case of trouble. The debugobjects core code keeps track of operations on static and dynamic objects by inserting them into a hashed list and sanity checking them on object operations and provides additional checks whenever kernel memory is freed. The tracked object operations are: - initializing an object - adding an object to a subsystem list - deleting an object from a subsystem list Each operation is sanity checked before the operation is executed and the subsystem specific code can provide a fixup function which allows to prevent the damage of the operation. When the sanity check triggers a warning message and a stack trace is printed. The list of operations can be extended if the need arises. For now it's limited to the requirements of the first user (timers). The core code enqueues the objects into hash buckets. The hash index is generated from the address of the object to simplify the lookup for the check on kfree/vfree. Each bucket has it's own spinlock to avoid contention on a global lock. The debug code can be compiled in without being active. The runtime overhead is minimal and could be optimized by asm alternatives. A kernel command line option enables the debugging code.

2008-04-30signals: fix /sbin/init protection from unwanted signalsOleg Nesterov
The global init has a lot of long standing problems with the unhandled fatal signals. - The "is_global_init(current)" check in get_signal_to_deliver() protects only the main thread. Sub-thread can dequee the fatal signal and shutdown the whole thread group except the main thread. If it dequeues SIGSTOP /sbin/init will be stopped, this is not right too. Note that we can't use is_global_init(->group_leader), this breaks exec and this can't solve other problems we have. - Even if afterwards ignored, the fatal signals sets SIGNAL_GROUP_EXIT on delivery. This breaks exec, has other bad implications, and this is just wrong. Introduce the new SIGNAL_UNKILLABLE flag to fix these problems. It also helps to solve some other problems addressed by the subsequent patches. Currently we use this flag for the global init only, but it could also be used by kthreads and (perhaps) by the sub-namespace inits. Signed-off-by: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@tv-sign.ru> Acked-by: "Eric W.

2008-04-29cgroups: add an owner to the mm_structBalbir Singh
Remove the mem_cgroup member from mm_struct and instead adds an owner. This approach was suggested by Paul Menage. The advantage of this approach is that, once the mm->owner is known, using the subsystem id, the cgroup can be determined. It also allows several control groups that are virtually grouped by mm_struct, to exist independent of the memory controller i.e., without adding mem_cgroup's for each controller, to mm_struct. A new config option CONFIG_MM_OWNER is added and the memory resource controller selects this config option. This patch also adds cgroup callbacks to notify subsystems when mm->owner changes. The mm_cgroup_changed callback is called with the task_lock() of the new task held and is called just prior to changing the mm->owner. I am indebted to Paul Menage for the several reviews of this patchset and helping me make it lighter and simpler. This patch was tested on a powerpc box, it was compiled with both the MM_OWNER config turned on and off. After the thread group leader exits, it's moved to init_css_state by cgroup_exit(), thus all future charges from runnings threads would be redirected to the init_css_set's subsystem.

2008-04-29cgroups: implement device whitelistSerge E. Hallyn
Implement a cgroup to track and enforce open and mknod restrictions on device files. A device cgroup associates a device access whitelist with each cgroup. A whitelist entry has 4 fields. 'type' is a (all), c (char), or b (block). 'all' means it applies to all types and all major and minor numbers. Major and minor are either an integer or * for all. Access is a composition of r (read), w (write), and m (mknod). The root device cgroup starts with rwm to 'all'. A child devcg gets a copy of the parent. Admins can then remove devices from the whitelist or add new entries. A child cgroup can never receive a device access which is denied its parent. However when a device access is removed from a parent it will not also be removed from the child(ren). An entry is added using devices.allow, and removed using devices.deny. For instance echo 'c 1:3 mr' > /cgroups/1/devices.allow allows cgroup 1 to read and mknod the device usually known as /dev/null. Doing echo a > /cgroups/1/devices.deny will remove the default 'a *:* mrw' entry. CAP_SYS_ADMIN is needed to change permissions or move another task to a new cgroup. A cgroup may not be granted more permissions than the cgroup's parent has. Any task can move itself between cgroups. This won't be sufficient, but we can decide the best way to adequately restrict movement later.

2008-04-14slub: No need for per node slab counters if !SLUB_DEBUGChristoph Lameter
The per node counters are used mainly for showing data through the sysfs API. If that API is not compiled in then there is no point in keeping track of this data. Disable counters for the number of slabs and the number of total slabs if !SLUB_DEBUG. Incrementing the per node counters is also accessing a potentially contended cacheline so this could actually be a performance benefit to embedded systems. SLABINFO support is also affected. It now must depends on SLUB_DEBUG (which is on by default). Patch also avoids a check for a NULL kmem_cache_node pointer in new_slab() if the system is not compiled with NUMA support.

2008-03-15ACPI: Remove ACPI_CUSTOM_DSDT_INITRD optionLinus Torvalds
This essentially reverts commit 71fc47a9adf8ee89e5c96a47222915c5485ac437 ("ACPI: basic initramfs DSDT override support"), because the code simply isn't ready. It did ugly things to the init sequence to populate the rootfs image early, but that just ended up showing other problems with the whole approach. The fact is, the VFS layer simply isn't initialized this early, and the relevant ACPI code should either run much later, or this shouldn't be done at all. For 2.6.25, we'll just pick the latter option. We can revisit this concept later if necessary.

2008-03-10rcu: move PREEMPT_RCU config option back under PREEMPTPaul E. McKenney
The original preemptible-RCU patch put the choice between classic and preemptible RCU into kernel/Kconfig.preempt, which resulted in build failures on machines not supporting CONFIG_PREEMPT. This choice was therefore moved to init/Kconfig, which worked, but placed the choice between classic and preemptible RCU at the top level, a very obtuse choice indeed. This patch changes from the Kconfig "choice" mechanism to a pair of booleans, only one of which (CONFIG_PREEMPT_RCU) is user-visible, and is located in kernel/Kconfig.preempt, where one would expect it to be.

2008-03-04Fix "Malformed early option 'loglevel'"Alex Riesen
Keith Mannthey said: The parameter hotadd_percent is setup right but there is a "Malformed early option 'numa'" message. Rusty Russell said: This happens when the function registered with early_param() returns non-zero. __setup() functions return 1 if OK, module_param() and early_param() return 0 or a -ve error code.

CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPRECATED=y changed its meaning recently and causes regressions in working setups that had SYSFS_DEPRECATED disabled. so rename it to SYSFS_DEPRECATED_V2 so that testers pick up the new default via 'make oldconfig', even if their old .config's disabled CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPRECATED ...

2008-02-23cgroup memory controller: document huge memory/cache overhead in KconfigAndi Kleen
Document huge memory/cache overhead of memory controller in Kconfig I was a little surprised that 2.6.25-rc* increased struct page for the memory controller. At least on many x86-64 machines it will not fit into a single cache line now anymore and also costs considerable amounts of RAM. At earlier review I remembered asking for a external data structure for this. It's also quite unobvious that a innocent looking Kconfig option with a single line Kconfig description has such a negative effect. This patch attempts to document these disadvantages at least so that users configuring their kernel can make a informed decision.
