2006-05-15[PATCH] root mount failure: emit filesystems attemptedAndy Whitcroft
When we fail to mount from a valid root device list out the filesystems we have tried to mount it with. This gives the user vital diagnostics as to what is missing from their kernel. For example in the fragment below the kernel does not have CRAMFS compiled into the kernel and yet appears to recognise it at the RAMDISK detect stage. Later the mount fails as we don't have the filesystem. RAMDISK: cramfs filesystem found at block 0 RAMDISK: Loading 1604KiB [1 disk] into ram disk... done. XFS: bad magic number XFS: SB validate failed No filesystem could mount root, tried: reiserfs ext3 ext2 msdos vfat iso9660 jfs xfs Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(8,1) Signed-off-by: Andy Whitcroft <apw@shadowen.org> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>

2006-05-15[PATCH] fix can_share_swap_page() when !CONFIG_SWAPHua Zhong
can_share_swap_page() is used to check if the page has the last reference. This avoids allocating a new page for COW if it's the last page. However, if CONFIG_SWAP is not set, can_share_swap_page() is defined as 0, thus always causes a copy for the last COW page. The below simple patch fixes it.

2006-05-15[PATCH] v9fs: signal handling fixesLatchesar Ionkov
Multiple races can happen when v9fs is interrupted by a signal and Tflush message is sent to the server. After v9fs sends Tflush it doesn't wait until it receives Rflush, and possibly the response of the original message. This behavior may confuse v9fs what fids are allocated by the file server. This patch fixes the races and the fid allocation.

2006-05-15[PATCH] smbfs: Fix slab corruption in samba error pathJan Niehusmann
Yesterday, I got the following error with 2.6.16.13 during a file copy from a smb filesystem over a wireless link. I guess there was some error on the wireless link, which in turn caused an error condition for the smb filesystem. In the log, smb_file_read reports error=4294966784 (0xfffffe00), which also shows up in the slab dumps, and also is -ERESTARTSYS. Error code 27499 corresponds to 0x6b6b, so the rq_errno field seems to be the only one being set after freeing the slab. In smb_add_request (which is the only place in smbfs where I found ERESTARTSYS), I found the following: if (!timeleft || signal_pending(current)) { /* * On timeout or on interrupt we want to try and remove the * request from the recvq/xmitq. */ smb_lock_server(server); if (!(req->rq_flags & SMB_REQ_RECEIVED)) { list_del_init(&req->rq_queue); smb_rput(req); } smb_unlock_server(server); } [...] if (signal_pending(current)) req->rq_errno = -ERESTARTSYS; I guess that some codepath like smbiod_flush() caused the request to be removed from the queue, and smb_rput(req) be called, without SMB_REQ_RECEIVED being set. This violates an asumption made by the quoted code. Then, the above code calls smb_rput(req) again, the req gets freed, and req->rq_errno = -ERESTARTSYS writes into the already freed slab. As list_del_init doesn't cause an error if called multiple times, that does cause the observed behaviour (freed slab with rq_errno=-ERESTARTSYS). If this observation is correct, the following patch should fix it. I wonder why the smb code uses list_del_init everywhere - using list_del instead would catch such situations by poisoning the next and prev pointers.

2006-05-15[PATCH] symbol_put_addr() locks kernelTrent Piepho
Even since a previous patch: Fix race between CONFIG_DEBUG_SLABALLOC and modules Sun, 27 Jun 2004 17:55:19 +0000 (17:55 +0000) http://www.kernel.org/git/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/old-2.6-bkcvs.git;a=commit;h=92b3db26d31cf21b70e3c1eadc56c179506d8fbe The function symbol_put_addr() will deadlock the kernel. symbol_put_addr() would acquire modlist_lock, then while holding the lock call two functions kernel_text_address() and module_text_address() which also try to acquire the same lock. This deadlocks the kernel of course. This patch changes symbol_put_addr() to not acquire the modlist_lock, it doesn't need it since it never looks at the module list directly. Also, it now uses core_kernel_text() instead of kernel_text_address(). The latter has an additional check for addr inside a module, but we don't need to do that since we call module_text_address() (the same function kernel_text_address uses) ourselves.

With "Paul E. McKenney" <paulmck@us.ibm.com> Introduce rcu_needs_cpu() interface. This can be used to tell if there will be a new rcu batch on a cpu soon by looking at the curlist pointer. This can be used to avoid to enter a tickless idle state where the cpu would miss that a new batch is ready when rcu_start_batch would be called on a different cpu.

2006-05-15[PATCH] VIA quirk fixup, additional PCI IDsChris Wedgwood
An earlier commit (75cf7456dd87335f574dcd53c4ae616a2ad71a11) changed an overly-zealous PCI quirk to only poke those VIA devices that need it. However, some PCI devices were not included in what I hope is now the full list. Consequently we're failing to run the quirk on all machines which need it, causing IRQ routing failures. This should I hope correct this. Thanks to Masoud Sharbiani <masouds@masoud.ir> for pointing this out and testing the fix.

2006-05-15[PATCH] autofs4: NFY_NONE wait race fixIan Kent
This patch fixes two problems. First, the comparison of entries in the waitq.c was incorrect. Second, the NFY_NONE check was incorrect. The test of whether the dentry is mounted if ineffective, for example, if an expire fails then we could wait forever on a non existant expire. The bug was identified by Jeff Moyer. The patch changes autofs4 to wait on expires only as this is all that's needed. If there is no existing wait when autofs4_wait is call with a type of NFY_NONE it delays until either a wait appears or the the expire flag is cleared.

2006-05-12Alternative fix for MMC oops on unmount after removalLinus Torvalds
Make sure to clear the driverfs_dev pointer when we do del_gendisk() (on disk removal), so that other users that may still have a ref to the disk won't try to use the stale pointer. Also move the KOBJ_REMOVE uevent handler up, so that the uevent still has access to the driverfs_dev data. This all should hopefully fix the problems with MMC umounts after device removals that caused commit 56cf6504fc1c0c221b82cebc16a444b684140fb7 and its reversal (1a2acc9e9214699a99389e323e6686e9e0e2ca67).

2006-05-12[NEIGH]: Fix IP-over-ATM and ARP interaction.Simon Kelley
The classical IP over ATM code maintains its own IPv4 <-> <ATM stuff> ARP table, using the standard neighbour-table code. The neigh_table_init function adds this neighbour table to a linked list of all neighbor tables which is used by the functions neigh_delete() neigh_add() and neightbl_set(), all called by the netlink code. Once the ATM neighbour table is added to the list, there are two tables with family == AF_INET there, and ARP entries sent via netlink go into the first table with matching family. This is indeterminate and often wrong. To see the bug, on a kernel with CLIP enabled, create a standard IPv4 ARP entry by pinging an unused address on a local subnet. Then attempt to complete that entry by doing ip neigh replace <ip address> lladdr <some mac address> nud reachable Looking at the ARP tables by using ip neigh show will reveal two ARP entries for the same address. One of these can be found in /proc/net/arp, and the other in /proc/net/atm/arp. This patch adds a new function, neigh_table_init_no_netlink() which does everything the neigh_table_init() does, except add the table to the netlink all-arp-tables chain. In addition neigh_table_init() has a check that all tables on the chain have a distinct address family. The init call in clip.c is changed to call neigh_table_init_no_netlink(). Since ATM ARP tables are rather more complicated than can currently be handled by the available rtattrs in the netlink protocol, no functionality is lost by this patch, and non-ATM ARP manipulation via netlink is rescued. A more complete solution would involve a rtattr for ATM ARP entries and some way for the netlink code to give neigh_add and friends more information than just address family with which to find the correct ARP table. [ I've changed the assertion checking in neigh_table_init() to not use BUG_ON() while holding neigh_tbl_lock. Instead we remember that we found an existing tbl with the same family, and after dropping the lock we'll give a diagnostic kernel log message and a stack dump. -DaveM ] Signed-off-by: Simon Kelley <simon@thekelleys.org.uk> Signed-off-by: David S.

2006-05-12Revert "[BLOCK] Fix oops on removal of SD/MMC card"Linus Torvalds
This reverts commit 56cf6504fc1c0c221b82cebc16a444b684140fb7. Both Erik Mouw and Andrew Vasquez independently pinpointed this commit as causing problems, where the slab cache for a driver is never released (most obviously causing problems when immediately re-loading that driver, resulting in a "kmem_cache_create: duplicate cache <xyz>" message, but it can also cause other trouble). James Bottomley dug into it, and reports: "OK, here's the scoop. The problem patch adds a get of driverfs_dev in add_disk(), but doesn't put it again until disk_release() (which occurs on final put_disk() of the gendisk). However, in SCSI, the driverfs_dev is the sdev_gendev. That means there's a reference held on sdev_gendev until final disk put. Unfortunately, we use the driver model driver_remove to trigger del_gendisk (which removes the gendisk from visibility and decrements the refcount), so we've introduced an unbreakable deadlock in the reference counting with this. I suggest simply reversing this patch at the moment. If Russell and Jens can tell me what they're trying to do I'll see if there's another way to do it." so hereby the patch gets reverted, waiting for a better fix.
