2009-03-28bzip2/lzma: clarify the meaning of the CONFIG_RD_ optionsH. Peter Anvin
Impact: Kconfig clarification Make it clear that the CONFIG_RD_* options are about what formats are supported, not about what formats are actually being used. Signed-off-by: H. Peter Anvin <hpa@zytor.com>
2009-03-28bzip2/lzma: move CONFIG_RD_* options under CONFIG_EMBEDDEDH. Peter Anvin
Impact: reduce Kconfig noise Move the options that control possible initramfs/initrd compressions underneath CONFIG_EMBEDDED. The only impact of leaving these options set to y is additional code in the init section of the kernel; there is no reason to burden non-embedded users with these options. Signed-off-by: H.

2009-03-23Build with -fno-dwarf2-cfi-asmKyle McMartin
With a sufficiently new compiler and binutils, code which wasn't previously generating .eh_frame sections has begun to. Certain architectures (powerpc, in this case) may generate unexpected relocation formats in response to this, preventing modules from loading. While the new relocation types should probably be handled, revert to the previous behaviour with regards to generation of .eh_frame sections. (This was reported against Fedora, which appears to be the only distro doing any building against gcc-4.4 at present: RH bz#486545.)

2009-03-23fix ptrace slownessMiklos Szeredi
This patch fixes bug #12208: Bug-Entry : http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12208 Subject : uml is very slow on 2.6.28 host This turned out to be not a scheduler regression, but an already existing problem in ptrace being triggered by subtle scheduler changes. The problem is this: - task A is ptracing task B - task B stops on a trace event - task A is woken up and preempts task B - task A calls ptrace on task B, which does ptrace_check_attach() - this calls wait_task_inactive(), which sees that task B is still on the runq - task A goes to sleep for a jiffy - ... Since UML does lots of the above sequences, those jiffies quickly add up to make it slow as hell. This patch solves this by not rescheduling in read_unlock() after ptrace_stop() has woken up the tracer. Thanks to Oleg Nesterov and Ingo Molnar for the feedback.

Also, since we fully construct phy_bus_id in the _probe() routine, we no longer need ->phy_address and ->mdio_bus fields in ucc_geth_info structure. I wish the patch would be a bit shorter, but it seems like the only way to fix the issue in a sane way. Luckily, the patch has been tested with real PHYs and fixed-link, so no further regressions expected.

2009-03-22dm9000: locking bugfixDavid Brownell
This fixes a locking bug in the dm9000 driver. It calls request_irq() without setting IRQF_DISABLED ... which is correct for handlers that support IRQ sharing, since that behavior is not guaranteed for shared IRQs. However, its IRQ handler then wrongly assumes that IRQs are blocked. So the fix just uses the right spinlock primitives in the IRQ handler. NOTE: this is a classic example of the type of bug which lockdep currently masks by forcibly setting IRQF_DISABLED on IRQ handlers that did not request that flag.

2009-03-22eCryptfs: NULL crypt_stat dereference during lookupTyler Hicks
If ecryptfs_encrypted_view or ecryptfs_xattr_metadata were being specified as mount options, a NULL pointer dereference of crypt_stat was possible during lookup. This patch moves the crypt_stat assignment into ecryptfs_lookup_and_interpose_lower(), ensuring that crypt_stat will not be NULL before we attempt to dereference it.

2009-03-22eCryptfs: Allocate a variable number of pages for file headersTyler Hicks
When allocating the memory used to store the eCryptfs header contents, a single, zeroed page was being allocated with get_zeroed_page(). However, the size of an eCryptfs header is either PAGE_CACHE_SIZE or ECRYPTFS_MINIMUM_HEADER_EXTENT_SIZE (8192), whichever is larger, and is stored in the file's private_data->crypt_stat->num_header_bytes_at_front field. ecryptfs_write_metadata_to_contents() was using num_header_bytes_at_front to decide how many bytes should be written to the lower filesystem for the file header. Unfortunately, at least 8K was being written from the page, despite the chance of the single, zeroed page being smaller than 8K. This resulted in random areas of kernel memory being written between the 0x1000 and 0x1FFF bytes offsets in the eCryptfs file headers if PAGE_SIZE was 4K. This patch allocates a variable number of pages, calculated with num_header_bytes_at_front, and passes the number of allocated pages along to ecryptfs_write_metadata_to_contents(). Thanks to Florian Streibelt for reporting the data leak and working with me to find the problem. 2.6.28 is the only kernel release with this vulnerability.

2009-03-22radeonfb: Whack the PCI PM register until it sticksBenjamin Herrenschmidt
This fixes a regression introduced when we switched to using the core pci_set_power_state(). The chip seems to need the state to be written over and over again until it sticks, so we do that. Note that the code is a bit blunt, without timeout, etc... but that's pretty much because I put back in there the code exactly as it used to be before the regression. I still add a call to pci_set_power_state() at the end so that ACPI gets called appropriately on x86.

2009-03-19aio: lookup_ioctx can return the wrong value when looking up a bogus contextJeff Moyer
The libaio test harness turned up a problem whereby lookup_ioctx on a bogus io context was returning the 1 valid io context from the list (harness/cases/3.p). Because of that, an extra put_iocontext was done, and when the process exited, it hit a BUG_ON in the put_iocontext macro called from exit_aio (since we expect a users count of 1 and instead get 0). The problem was introduced by "aio: make the lookup_ioctx() lockless" (commit abf137dd7712132ee56d5b3143c2ff61a72a5faa). Thanks to Zach for pointing out that hlist_for_each_entry_rcu will not return with a NULL tpos at the end of the loop, even if the entry was not found.

Remove a source of fput() call from inside IRQ context. Myself, like Eric, wasn't able to reproduce an fput() call from IRQ context, but Jeff said he was able to, with the attached test program. Independently from this, the bug is conceptually there, so we might be better off fixing it. This patch adds an optimization similar to the one we already do on ->ki_filp, on ->ki_eventfd. Playing with ->f_count directly is not pretty in general, but the alternative here would be to add a brand new delayed fput() infrastructure, that I'm not sure is worth it.

2009-03-18smsc911x: reset last known duplex and carrier on openSteve Glendinning
smsc911x_phy_adjust_link is called periodically by the phy layer (as it's run in polling mode), and it only updates the hardware when it sees a change in duplex or carrier. This patch clears the last known values every time the interface is brought up, instead of only when the module is loaded. Without this patch the adjust_link function never updates the hardware after an ifconfig down; ifconfig up. On a full duplex link this causes the tx error counter to increment, even though packets are correctly transmitted, as the default MAC_CR register setting is for half duplex. The tx errors are "no carrier" errors, which should be ignored in full-duplex mode. When MAC_CR is set to "full duplex" mode they are correctly ignored by the hardware. Note that even with this patch the tx error counter can increment if packets are transmitted between "ifconfig up" and the first phy poll interval. An improved solution would use the phy interrupt with phylib, but I haven't managed to make this work 100% robustly yet.

2009-03-18tulip: fix crash on iface up with shirq debugKyle McMartin
Tulip is currently doing request_irq before it has done its initialization. This is usually not a problem because it hasn't enable interrupts yet, but with DEBUG_SHIRQ on, we call the irq handler when registering the interrupt as a sanity check. This can result in a NULL ptr dereference, so call tulip_init_ring before request_irq, and add a free_ring function to do the freeing now shared with tulip_close. Tested with a shell loop running ifup, ifdown in a loop a few hundred times with DEBUG_SHIRQ on. Signed-off-by: Kyle McMartin <kyle@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2009-03-18virtio_net: Make virtio_net support carrier detectionPantelis Koukousoulas
Impact: Make NetworkManager work with virtio_net For now the semantics are simple: There is always carrier. This allows a seamless experience with e.g., qemu/kvm where NetworkManager just configures and sets up everything automagically. If/when a generally agreed-upon way to control carrier on/off in the emulator/hypervisor level emerges, it will be trivial to extend the driver to support that too, but for now even this 2-liner makes user experience that much better.

2009-03-18bonding: Fix updating of speed/duplex changesJay Vosburgh
This patch corrects an omission from the following commit: commit f0c76d61779b153dbfb955db3f144c62d02173c2 Author: Jay Vosburgh <fubar@us.ibm.com> Date: Wed Jul 2 18:21:58 2008 -0700 bonding: refactor mii monitor The un-refactored code checked the link speed and duplex of every slave on every pass; the refactored code did not do so. The 802.3ad and balance-alb/tlb modes utilize the speed and duplex information, and require it to be kept up to date. This patch adds a notifier check to perform the appropriate updating when the slave device speed changes. Signed-off-by: Jay Vosburgh <fubar@us.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
