2005-08-27[PATCH] Remove race between con_open and con_closePaul Mackerras
[ Same race and same patch also by Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org> ] I have a laptop (G3 powerbook) which will pretty reliably hit a race between con_open and con_close late in the boot process and oops in vt_ioctl due to tty->driver_data being NULL. What happens is this: process A opens /dev/tty6; it comes into con_open() (drivers/char/vt.c) and assign a non-NULL value to tty->driver_data. Then process A closes that and concurrently process B opens /dev/tty6. Process A gets through con_close() and clears tty->driver_data, since tty->count == 1. However, before process A can decrement tty->count, we switch to process B (e.g. at the down(&tty_sem) call at drivers/char/tty_io.c line 1626). So process B gets to run and comes into con_open with tty->count == 2, as tty->count is incremented (in init_dev) before con_open is called. Because tty->count != 1, we don't set tty->driver_data. Then when the process tries to do anything with that fd, it oopses. The simple and effective fix for this is to test tty->driver_data rather than tty->count in con_open. The testing and setting of tty->driver_data is serialized with respect to the clearing of tty->driver_data in con_close by the console_sem. We can't get a situation where con_open sees tty->driver_data != NULL and then con_close on a different fd clears tty->driver_data, because tty->count is incremented before con_open is called. Thus this patch eliminates the race, and in fact with this patch my laptop doesn't oops.

2005-08-27[PATCH] sg.c: fix a memory leak in devices seq_file implementationJan Blunck
I know that scsi procfs is legacy code but this is a fix for a memory leak. While reading through sg.c I realized that the implementation of /proc/scsi/sg/devices with seq_file is leaking memory due to freeing the pointer returned by the next() iterator method. Since next() might return NULL or an error this is wrong. This patch fixes it through using the seq_files private field for holding the reference to the iterator object. Here is a small bash script to trigger the leak. Use slabtop to watch the size-32 usage grow and grow. #!/bin/sh while true; do cat /proc/scsi/sg/devices > /dev/null done Signed-off-by: Jan Blunck <j.blunck@tu-harburg.de> Acked-by: James Bottomley <James.Bottomley@steeleye.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>

2005-08-27[PATCH] mmaper_kern.c fixes [buffer overruns]Al Viro
- copy_from_user() can fail; ->write() must check its return value. - severe buffer overruns both in ->read() and ->write() - lseek to the end (i.e. to mmapper_size) and if (count + *ppos > mmapper_size) count = count + *ppos - mmapper_size; will do absolutely nothing. Then it will call copy_to_user(buf,&v_buf[*ppos],count); with obvious results (similar for ->write()). Fixed by turning read to simple_read_from_buffer() and by doing normal limiting of count in ->write(). - gratitious lock_kernel() in ->mmap() - it's useless there. - lots of gratuitous includes.

Don't check type of sax25_family; dev_set_mac_address has already done that before and anyway, the type to check against would have been ARPHRD_AX25. We only got away because AF_AX25 and ARPHRD_AX25 both happen to be defined to the same value.

2005-08-26[PATCH] Fix oops in sysfs_hash_and_remove_file()James Bottomley
The problem arises if an entity in sysfs is created and removed without ever having been made completely visible. In SCSI this is triggered by removing a device while it's initialising. The problem appears to be that because it was never made visible in sysfs, the sysfs dentry has a null d_inode which oopses when a reference is made to it. The solution is simply to check d_inode and assume the object was never made visible (and thus doesn't need deleting) if it's NULL. (akpm: possibly a stopgap for 2.6.13 scsi problems.

2005-08-26[PATCH] x86_64: Tell VM about holes in nodesAndi Kleen
Some nodes can have large holes on x86-64. This fixes problems with the VM allowing too many dirty pages because it overestimates the number of available RAM in a node. In extreme cases you can end up with all RAM filled with dirty pages which can lead to deadlocks and other nasty behaviour. This patch just tells the VM about the known holes from e820. Reserved (like the kernel text or mem_map) is still not taken into account, but that should be only a few percent error now. Small detail is that the flat setup uses the NUMA free_area_init_node() now too because it offers more flexibility.

2005-08-26[PATCH] Fix oops in fs/locks.c on close of file with pending locksSteve French
The recent change to locks_remove_flock code in fs/locks.c changes how byte range locks are removed from closing files, which shows up a bug in cifs. The assumption in the cifs code was that the close call sent to the server would remove any pending locks on the server on this file, but that is no longer safe as the fs/locks.c code on the client wants unlock of 0 to PATH_MAX to remove all locks (at least from this client, it is not possible AFAIK to remove all locks from other clients made to the server copy of the file). Note that cifs locks are different from posix locks - and it is not possible to map posix locks perfectly on the wire yet, due to restrictions of the cifs network protocol, even to Samba without adding a new request type to the network protocol (which we plan to do for Samba 3.0.21 within a few months), but the local client will have the correct, posix view, of the lock in most cases. The correct fix for cifs for this would involve a bigger change than I would like to do this late in the 2.6.13-rc cycle - and would involve cifs keeping track of all unmerged (uncoalesced) byte range locks for each remote inode and scanning that list to remove locks that intersect or fall wholly within the range - locks that intersect may have to be reaquired with the smaller, remaining range.

2005-08-23[PATCH] cpu_exclusive sched domains on partial nodes temp fixPaul Jackson
This keeps the kernel/cpuset.c routine update_cpu_domains() from invoking the sched.c routine partition_sched_domains() if the cpuset in question doesn't fall on node boundaries. I have boot tested this on an SN2, and with the help of a couple of ad hoc printk's, determined that it does indeed avoid calling the partition_sched_domains() routine on partial nodes. I did not directly verify that this avoids setting up bogus sched domains or avoids the oops that Hawkes saw. This patch imposes a silent artificial constraint on which cpusets can be used to define dynamic sched domains. This patch should allow proceeding with this new feature in 2.6.13 for the configurations in which it is useful (node alligned sched domains) while avoiding trying to setup sched domains in the less useful cases that can cause the kernel corruption and oops.
