Fix pagemap_read() use of struct mm_walk

Fix some issues in pagemap_read noted by Alexey:

- initialize pagemap_walk.mm to "mm" , so the code starts working as
  advertised

- initialize ->private to "&pm" so it wouldn't immediately oops in
  pagemap_pte_hole()

- unstatic struct pagemap_walk, so two threads won't fsckup each other
  (including those started by root, including flipping ->mm when you don't
  have permissions)

- pagemap_read() contains two calls to ptrace_may_attach(), second one
  looks unneeded.

- avoid possible kmalloc(0) and integer wraparound.

cciss: read config to obtain max outstanding commands per controller

This patch changes the way we determine the maximum number of outstanding
commands for each controller.

Most Smart Array controllers can support up to 1024 commands, the notable
exceptions are the E200 and E200i.

The next generation of controllers which were just added support a mode of
operation called Zero Memory Raid (ZMR).  In this mode they only support
64 outstanding commands.  In Full Function Raid (FFR) mode they support
1024.

We have been setting the queue depth by arbitrarily assigning some value
for each controller.  We needed a better way to set the queue depth to
avoid lots of annoying "fifo full" messages.  So we made the driver a
little smarter.  We now read the config table and subtract 4 from the
returned value.  The -4 is to allow some room for ioctl calls which are
not tracked the same way as io commands are tracked.

of this fix is gated on filesystem capability support because changing

spi: fix the read path in spidev

active".  I tested the rmmod & write path but didn't check the read path.
I am sorry.  The read logic changed and spidev_sync_read() +
spidev_sync_write() do not return zero on success anymore but the number
of bytes that has been transfered over the bus.  This patch changes the
logic and copy_to_user() gets called again.

The write path returns the number of bytes which are written to the
underlying device what may be less than the requested size.  This patch
makes the same change to the read path or else we request a read of 20
bytes, get 10, don't call copy to user and report to the user that we read

9 years agortc-x1205: Fix alarm set
Michael Hamel [Fri, 4 Jul 2008 16:59:30 +0000 (09:59 -0700)]
rtc-x1205: Fix alarm set

I have discovered that the current version of rtc-x1205.c does not work
correctly when asked to set the alarm time by the RTC_WKALM_SET ioctl()
call.  This happens because the alarm registers do not behave like the
current-time registers.  They are non-volatile.  Two things go wrong:

- the X1205 requires a 10 msec delay after any attempt to write to the
  non-volatile registers.  The x1205_set_datetime() routine does the write
  as 8 single-byte writes without any delay.  Only the first write
  succeeds.  The second is NAKed because the chip is busy.

- the X1205 resets the RWEL bit after any write to the non-volatile
  registers.  This would lock out any further writes after the first even
  with a 10msec delay.

I fix this by doing a single 8-byte write and then waiting 10msec for the
chip to be ready.  A side effect of this change is that it will speed up
x1205_rtc_set_time() which uses the same code.

I have also implemented the 'enable' bit in the rtc_wkalm structure, which
the existing driver does not attempt to do.  I have modified both
x1205_rtc_set_alarm() to set the AL0E bit, and x1205_rtc_read_alarm() to
return it.

I have tested this patch on a LinkSys NSLU2 under OpenWRT, but on no other
hardware.  On the NSLU2 the X1205 correctly asserts its IRQ pin when the
alarm time matches the current time.

9 years agomm: dirty page accounting vs VM_MIXEDMAP
Peter Zijlstra [Fri, 4 Jul 2008 16:59:24 +0000 (09:59 -0700)]
mm: dirty page accounting vs VM_MIXEDMAP

Dirty page accounting accurately measures the amound of dirty pages in
writable shared mappings by mapping the pages RO (as indicated by
vma_wants_writenotify).  We then trap on first write and call
set_page_dirty() on the page, after which we map the page RW and
continue execution.

When we launder dirty pages, we call clear_page_dirty_for_io() which
clears both the dirty flag, and maps the page RO again before we start
writeout so that the story can repeat itself.

vma_wants_writenotify() excludes VM_PFNMAP on the basis that we cannot
do the regular dirty page stuff on raw PFNs and the memory isn't going
anywhere anyway.

The recently introduced VM_MIXEDMAP mixes both !pfn_valid() and
pfn_valid() pages in a single mapping.

We can't do dirty page accounting on !pfn_valid() pages as stated
above, and mapping them RO causes them to be COW'ed on write, which
breaks VM_SHARED semantics.

Excluding VM_MIXEDMAP in vma_wants_writenotify() would mean we don't do
the regular dirty page accounting for the pfn_valid() pages, which
would bring back all the head-aches from inaccurate dirty page
accounting.

So instead, we let the !pfn_valid() pages get mapped RO, but fix them
up unconditionally in the fault path.

USB: fix interrupt disabling for HCDs with shared interrupt handlers

As has been discussed several times on LKML, IRQF_SHARED | IRQF_DISABLED
doesn't work reliably, i.e. a shared interrupt handler CAN'T be certain to
be called with interrupts disabled. Most USB HCD handlers use IRQF_DISABLED

handler that doesn't use it.

On my test machine the yenta_socket interrupt handler (no IRQF_DISABLED)

usb_hcd_irq() invocations for ehci_hcd and for one uhci_hcd instance
happened with interrupts enabled. That led to random lockups as USB core
HCD functions that acquire the same spinlock could be called twice
from interrupt handlers.

This patch updates usb_hcd_irq() to always disable/restore interrupts.
usb_add_hcd() will silently remove any IRQF_DISABLED requested from HCD code.

USB: New device ID for ftdi_sio driver

Here's a new device ID for the ftdio_sio driver.
The diff is with linus's tree as of this morning.

The device is the RigExpert Tiny USB Soundcard Transceiver Interface for ham
radio.

(I didn't actually test this. A fellow ham couldn't get the device to work, and
I suggested binding the device ID using sysfs - see
"http://jk.ufisa.uninett.no/usb/". However, he had had moved on to other things
by then. I guess adding the device ID to the kernel "on spec" won't hurt.
The relevant part of cat /proc/bus/usb/devices shows:

USB: ohci - record data toggle after unlink

This patch fixes a problem with OHCI where canceling bulk or
interrupt URBs may lose track of the right data toggle.  This
seems to be a longstanding bug, possibly dating back to the
Linux 2.4 kernel, which stayed hidden because

 (a) about half the time the data toggle bit was correct;
 (b) canceling such URBs is unusual; and
 (c) the few drivers which cancel these URBs either
      [1] do it only as part of shutting down, or
      [2] have fault recovery logic, which recovers.

For those transfer types, the toggle is normally written back
into the ED when each TD is retired.  But canceling bypasses
the mechanism used to retire TDs ... so on average, half the
time the toggle bit will be invalid after cancelation.

The fix is simple:  the toggle state of any canceled TDs are
propagated back to the ED in the finish_unlinks function.
