parallel to mutex_{lock,unlock,trylock,is_locked,lock_nested}, inode_foo(inode) being mutex_foo(&inode->i_mutex).

2013-07-14kernel: delete __cpuinit usage from all core kernel filesPaul Gortmaker-1/+1
The __cpuinit type of throwaway sections might have made sense some time ago when RAM was more constrained, but now the savings do not offset the cost and complications. For example, the fix in commit 5e427ec2d0 ("x86: Fix bit corruption at CPU resume time") is a good example of the nasty type of bugs that can be created with improper use of the various __init prefixes. After a discussion on LKML[1] it was decided that cpuinit should go the way of devinit and be phased out. Once all the users are gone, we can then finally remove the macros themselves from linux/init.h. This removes all the uses of the __cpuinit macros from C files in the core kernel directories (kernel, init, lib, mm, and include) that don't really have a specific maintainer.

Currently remove_buf_file callback is called from from kobject release method.

Later we make a decision to stop tracing blktrace_down() relay_close(rhcan) /* just decrement kobj reference */ /* since it is not zero then callback not called */ debugfs_remove(dir) /* FAIL due to non empty dir */ Later user space will close the file and file will be deleted, but directory still exist. user_space_close() ->file_release ->release_buf_file_callback ->debugfs_remove(buf_file ## TESTCASE: # blktrace -d /dev/sda1 -d /dev/sda -o test # After that blktrace infrastructure will remain broken in # an unusable state so: blktrace -d /dev/sda1 will not work. In fact this is general issue, blktrace is just one of examples. We can not reliably remove parent dir until all users close the buf_file. Solution: We don't have to wait that long.

2012-06-13splice: fix racy pipe->buffers usesEric Dumazet-2/+3
Dave Jones reported a kernel BUG at mm/slub.c:3474! triggered by splice_shrink_spd() called from vmsplice_to_pipe() commit 35f3d14dbbc5 (pipe: add support for shrinking and growing pipes) added capability to adjust pipe->buffers. Problem is some paths don't hold pipe mutex and assume pipe->buffers doesn't change for their duration. Fix this by adding nr_pages_max field in struct splice_pipe_desc, and use it in place of pipe->buffers where appropriate. splice_shrink_spd() loses its struct pipe_inode_info argument.

2009-02-18timers: add mod_timer_pending()Ingo Molnar-1/+1
Impact: new timer API Based on an idea from Martin Josefsson with the help of Patrick McHardy and Stephen Hemminger: introduce the mod_timer_pending() API which is a mod_timer() offspring that is an invariant on already removed timers. (regular mod_timer() re-activates non-pending timers.) This is useful for the networking code in that it can allow unserialized mod_timer_pending() timer-forwarding calls, but a single del_timer*() will stop the timer from being reactivated again. Also while at it: - optimize the regular mod_timer() path some more, the timer-stat and a debug check was needlessly duplicated in __mod_timer(). - make the exports come straight after the function, as most other exports in timer.c already did. - eliminate __mod_timer() as an external API, change the users to mod_timer(). The regular mod_timer() code path is not impacted significantly, due to inlining optimizations and due to the simplifications.

2007-07-31Fix a use after free bug in kernel->userspace relay file supportJesper Juhl-1/+2
Coverity spotted what looks like a real possible case of using a variable after it has been freed. The problem is in kernel/relay.c::relay_open_buf() If the code hits "goto free_buf;" it ends up in this code : free_buf: relay_destroy_buf(buf); <--- calls kfree() on 'buf'. free_name: kfree(tmpname); end: return buf; <-- use after free of 'buf'. I read through the callers and they all handle a NULL return from this function as an error (and hitting the 'free_buf' label only happens on failure to chan->cb->create_buf_file(), so that looks like a clear error to me). The patch simply sets 'buf' to NULL after the call to relay_destroy_buf(buf); - as far as I can see that should take care of the problem. The patch also corrects a reference to a documentation file while I was at it. Note from Mathieu: the documentation reference change should have been done in a separate patch, but I guess no one will really care.

2007-07-13relay: fix bogus cast in subbuf_splice_actor()Tom Zanussi-1/+3
The current code that sets the read position in subbuf_splice_actor may give erroneous results if the buffer size isn't a power of 2. This patch fixes the problem. Signed-off-by: Tom Zanussi <zanussi@us.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jens.axboe@oracle.com>
