git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/agk/linux-dm Pull device-mapper updates from Alasdair G Kergon: "Improve multipath's retrying mechanism in some defined circumstances and provide a simple reserve/release mechanism for userspace tools to access thin provisioning metadata while the pool is in use." * tag 'dm-3.5-changes-1' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/agk/linux-dm: dm thin: provide userspace access to pool metadata dm thin: use slab mempools dm mpath: allow ioctls to trigger pg init dm mpath: delay retry of bypassed pg dm mpath: reduce size of struct multipath
2012-06-03dm thin: provide userspace access to pool metadataJoe Thornber-11/+193
This patch implements two new messages that can be sent to the thin pool target allowing it to take a snapshot of the _metadata_. This, read-only snapshot can be accessed by userland, concurrently with the live target. Only one metadata snapshot can be held at a time. The pool's status line will give the block location for the current msnap. Since version 0.1.5 of the userland thin provisioning tools, the thin_dump program displays the msnap as follows: thin_dump -m <msnap root> <metadata dev> Available here: https://github.com/jthornber/thin-provisioning-tools Now that userland can access the metadata we can do various things that have traditionally been kernel side tasks: i) Incremental backups. By using metadata snapshots we can work out what blocks have changed over time. Combined with data snapshots we can ensure the data doesn't change while we back it up. A short proof of concept script can be found here: https://github.com/jthornber/thinp-test-suite/blob/master/incremental_backup_example.rb ii) Migration of thin devices from one pool to another. iii) Merging snapshots back into an external origin. iv) Asyncronous replication.

2012-06-03dm thin: use slab mempoolsMike Snitzer-62/+99
Use dedicated caches prefixed with a "dm_" name rather than relying on kmalloc mempools backed by generic slab caches so the memory usage of thin provisioning (and any leaks) can be accounted for independently.

2012-06-03dm mpath: allow ioctls to trigger pg initMikulas Patocka-9/+17
After the failure of a group of paths, any alternative paths that need initialising do not become available until further I/O is sent to the device. Until this has happened, ioctls return -EAGAIN. With this patch, new paths are made available in response to an ioctl too. The processing of the ioctl gets delayed until this has happened. Instead of returning an error, we submit a work item to kmultipathd (that will potentially activate the new path) and retry in ten milliseconds. Note that the patch doesn't retry an ioctl if the ioctl itself fails due to a path failure. Such retries should be handled intelligently by the code that generated the ioctl in the first place, noting that some SCSI commands should not be retried because they are not idempotent (XOR write commands). For commands that could be retried, there is a danger that if the device rejected the SCSI command, the path could be errorneously marked as failed, and the request would be retried on another path which might fail too. It can be determined if the failure happens on the device or on the SCSI controller, but there is no guarantee that all SCSI drivers set these flags correctly.

2012-06-03dm mpath: delay retry of bypassed pgMike Christie-2/+6
If I/O needs retrying and only bypassed priority groups are available, set the pg_init_delay_retry flag to wait before retrying. If, for example, the reason for the bypass is that the controller is getting reset or there is a firmware upgrade happening, retrying right away would cause a flood of log messages and retries for what could be a few seconds or even several minutes.

2012-06-03dm mpath: reduce size of struct multipathMike Snitzer-6/+7
Move multipath structure's 'lock' and 'queue_size' members to eliminate two 4-byte holes. Also use a bit within a single unsigned int for each existing flag (saves 8-bytes). This allows future flags to be added without each consuming an unsigned int.

Pull networking updates from David Miller: 1) Make syn floods consume significantly less resources by a) Not pre-COW'ing routing metrics for SYN/ACKs b) Mirroring the device queue mapping of the SYN for the SYN/ACK reply. Both from Eric Dumazet. 2) Fix calculation errors in Byte Queue Limiting, from Hiroaki SHIMODA. 3) Validate the length requested when building a paged SKB for a socket, so we don't overrun the page vector accidently. From Jason Wang. 4) When netlabel is disabled, we abort all IP option processing when we see a CIPSO option. This isn't the right thing to do, we should simply skip over it and continue processing the remaining options (if any). Fix from Paul Moore. 5) SRIOV fixes for the mellanox driver from Jack orgenstein and Marcel Apfelbaum. 6) 8139cp enables the receiver before the ring address is properly programmed, which potentially lets the device crap over random memory.

2012-06-02tty: Revert the tty locking series, it needs more workLinus Torvalds-191/+119
This reverts the tty layer change to use per-tty locking, because it's not correct yet, and fixing it will require some more deep surgery. The main revert is d29f3ef39be4 ("tty_lock: Localise the lock"), but there are several smaller commits that built upon it, they also get reverted here. The list of reverted commits is: fde86d310886 - tty: add lockdep annotations 8f6576ad476b - tty: fix ldisc lock inversion trace d3ca8b64b97e - pty: Fix lock inversion b1d679afd766 - tty: drop the pty lock during hangup abcefe5fc357 - tty/amiserial: Add missing argument for tty_unlock() fd11b42e3598 - cris: fix missing tty arg in wait_event_interruptible_tty call d29f3ef39be4 - tty_lock: Localise the lock The revert had a trivial conflict in the 68360serial.c staging driver that got removed in the meantime.

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/viro/{vfs,signal} Pull vfs fix and a fix from the signal changes for frv from Al Viro. The __kernel_nlink_t for powerpc got scrogged because 64-bit powerpc actually depended on the default "unsigned long", while 32-bit powerpc had an explicit override to "unsigned short". Al didn't notice, and made both of them be the unsigned short. The frv signal fix is fallout from simplifying the do_notify_resume() code, and leaving an extra parenthesis. * 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/viro/vfs: powerpc: Fix size of st_nlink on 64bit * 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/viro/signal: frv: Remove bogus closing parenthesis

2012-06-01nls: fix (and rename) mac NLS table files and config optionsLinus Torvalds-33/+33
The config options in the Kconfig file (with _CODEPAGE_ in the name) didn't match the config option name in the Makefile (no _CODEPAGE_). And both of them were of the hard-to-read MACXYZZY variety, which made them hard to parse for normal humans: MACROMAN easily reads as "macro man", not as "Mac Roman". So rename the options to be consistent, and be NLS_MAC_xyzzy. Rename the files to be mac-xyzzy.c too, and drop the "nls" part entirely (it's already in the directory name).

2012-06-01x86, x32, ptrace: Remove PTRACE_ARCH_PRCTL for x32H.J. Lu-6/+0
When I added x32 ptrace to 3.4 kernel, I also include PTRACE_ARCH_PRCTL support for x32 GDB For ARCH_GET_FS/GS, it takes a pointer to int64. But at user level, ARCH_GET_FS/GS takes a pointer to int32. So I have to add x32 ptrace to glibc to handle it with a temporary int64 passed to kernel and copy it back to GDB as int32. Roland suggested that PTRACE_ARCH_PRCTL is obsolete and x32 GDB should use fs_base and gs_base fields of user_regs_struct instead. Accordingly, remove PTRACE_ARCH_PRCTL completely from the x32 code to avoid possible memory overrun when pointer to int32 is passed to kernel.

2012-06-01tcp: reflect SYN queue_mapping into SYNACK packetsEric Dumazet-6/+12
While testing how linux behaves on SYNFLOOD attack on multiqueue device (ixgbe), I found that SYNACK messages were dropped at Qdisc level because we send them all on a single queue. Obvious choice is to reflect incoming SYN packet @queue_mapping to SYNACK packet. Under stress, my machine could only send 25.000 SYNACK per second (for 200.000 incoming SYN per second). NIC : ixgbe with 16 rx/tx queues. After patch, not a single SYNACK is dropped.

Currently, we terminate the eeprom access through clearing the CS by: RTL_W8 (Cfg9346, ~EE_CS); or writeb (~EE_CS, ee_addr); This would left the eeprom into "Config.

2012-06-01cipso: handle CIPSO options correctly when NetLabel is disabledPaul Moore-1/+28
When NetLabel is not enabled, e.g. CONFIG_NETLABEL=n, and the system receives a CIPSO tagged packet it is dropped (cipso_v4_validate() returns non-zero). In most cases this is the correct and desired behavior, however, in the case where we are simply forwarding the traffic, e.g. acting as a network bridge, this becomes a problem. This patch fixes the forwarding problem by providing the basic CIPSO validation code directly in ip_options_compile() without the need for the NetLabel or CIPSO code. The new validation code can not perform any of the CIPSO option label/value verification that cipso_v4_validate() does, but it can verify the basic CIPSO option format. The behavior when NetLabel is enabled is unchanged. Signed-off-by: Paul Moore <pmoore@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>

2012-06-01x86: get rid of calling do_notify_resume() when returning to kernel modeAl Viro-13/+10
If we end up calling do_notify_resume() with !user_mode(refs), it does nothing (do_signal() explicitly bails out and we can't get there with TIF_NOTIFY_RESUME in such situations). Then we jump to resume_userspace_sig, which rechecks the same thing and bails out to resume_kernel, thus breaking the loop. It's easier and cheaper to check *before* calling do_notify_resume() and bail out to resume_kernel immediately. And kill the check in do_signal()... Note that on amd64 we can't get there with !user_mode() at all - asm glue takes care of that.

Does block_sigmask() + tracehook_signal_handler(); called when sigframe has been successfully built. All architectures converted to it; block_sigmask() itself is gone now (merged into this one). I'm still not too happy with the signature, but that's a separate story (IMO we need a structure that would contain signal number + siginfo + k_sigaction, so that get_signal_to_deliver() would fill one, signal_delivered(), handle_signal() and probably setup...frame() - take one).
