      sysfs, kernfs: reorganize SYSFS_* constants · 2b25a629
      Tejun Heo authored
      
      
      We want to add one more SYSFS_FLAG_* but we can't use the next higher
      bit, 0x10000, as the flag field is 16bits wide.  The flags are
      currently arranged weirdly - 8 bits are set aside for the type flags
      when there are only three three used, the first flag starts at 0x1000
      instead of 0x0100 and flag literals have 5 digits (20 bits) when only
      4 digits can be used.
      
      Rearrange them so that type bits are only the lowest four, flags start
      at 0x0010 and similar flags are grouped.
      
      This patch doesn't cause any behavior difference.

      sysfs, kernfs: introduce kernfs_notify() · 024f6471
      Tejun Heo authored
      
      
      Introduce kernfs interface to wake up poll(2) which takes and returns
      sysfs_dirents.
      
      sysfs_notify_dirent() is renamed to kernfs_notify() and sysfs_notify()
      is updated so that it doesn't directly grab sysfs_mutex but acquires
      the target sysfs_dirents using sysfs_get_dirent().
      sysfs_notify_dirent() is reimplemented as a dumb inline wrapper around
      kernfs_notify().
      
      This patch doesn't introduce any behavior changes.

      sysfs, kernfs: add kernfs_ops->seq_{start|next|stop}() · d19b9846
      Tejun Heo authored
      
      
      kernfs_ops currently only supports single_open() behavior which is
      pretty restrictive.  Add optional callbacks ->seq_{start|next|stop}()
      which, when implemented, are invoked for seq_file traversal.  This
      allows full seq_file functionality for kernfs users.  This currently
      doesn't have any user and doesn't change any behavior.
      
      v2: Refreshed on top of the updated "sysfs, kernfs: prepare read path
          for kernfs".

      Tejun Heo authored
      
      
      sysfs_add_one() is a wrapper around __sysfs_add_one() which prints out
      duplicate name warning if __sysfs_add_one() fails with -EEXIST.  The
      previous kernfs conversions moved all dup warnings to sysfs interface
      functions and sysfs_add_one() doesn't have any user left.
      
      Remove sysfs_add_one() and update __sysfs_add_one() to take its name.

      The actual file creation part is separated out from

      sysfs, kernfs: remove SYSFS_KOBJ_BIN_ATTR · a7dc66df
      Tejun Heo authored
      
      
      After kernfs_ops and sysfs_dirent->s_attr.size addition, the
      distinction between SYSFS_KOBJ_BIN_ATTR and SYSFS_KOBJ_ATTR is only
      necessary while creating files to decide which kernfs_ops to use.
      Afterwards, they behave exactly the same.
      
      This patch removes SYSFS_KOBJ_BIN_ATTR along with sysfs_is_bin().
      sysfs_add_file[_mode_ns]() are updated to take bool @is_bin instead of
      @type.
      
      This patch doesn't introduce any behavior changes.  This completely
      isolates the distinction between the two sysfs file types in the sysfs
      layer proper.

      sysfs, kernfs: add sysfs_dirent->s_attr.size · 471bd7b7
      Tejun Heo authored
      
      
      sysfs sets the size of regular files unconditionally at PAGE_SIZE and
      takes the size of bin files from bin_attribute.  The latter is a
      pretty bad interface which forces bin_attribute users to create a
      separate copy of bin_attribute for each instance of the file -
      e.g. pci resource files.
      
      Add sysfs_dirent->s_attr.size so that the size can be specified
      separately.  This unifies inode init paths of ATTR and BIN_ATTR
      identical and allows for generic size handling for kernfs.
      
      Unfortunately, this grows the size of sysfs_dirent by sizeof(loff_t).

      sysfs, kernfs: introduce kernfs_ops · f6acf8bb
      Tejun Heo authored
      
      
      We're in the process of separating out core sysfs functionality into
      kernfs which will deal with sysfs_dirents directly.  This patch
      introduces kernfs_ops which hosts methods kernfs users implement and
      updates fs/sysfs/file.c such that sysfs_kf_*() functions populate
      kernfs_ops and kernfs_file_*() functions call the matching entries
      from kernfs_ops.
      
      kernfs_ops contains the following groups of methods.
      
      * seq_show() - for kernfs files which use seq_file for reads.
      
      * read() - for direct read implementations.  Used iff seq_show() is
        not implemented.
      
      * write() - for writes.
      
      * mmap() - for mmaps.
      
      Notes:
      
      * sysfs_elem_attr->ops is added so that kernfs_ops can be accessed
        from sysfs_dirent.  kernfs_ops() helper is added to verify locking
        and access the field.
      
      * SYSFS_FLAG_HAS_(SEQ_SHOW|MMAP) added.  sd->s_attr->ops is accessible
        only while holding active_ref and there are cases where we want to
        take different actions depending on which ops are implemented.
        These two flags cache whether the two ops are implemented for those.
      
      * kernfs_file_*() no longer test sysfs type but chooses different
        behaviors depending on which methods in kernfs_ops are implemented.
        The conversions are trivial except for the open path.  As
        kernfs_file_open() now decides whether to allow read/write accesses
        depending on the kernfs_ops implemented, the presence of methods in
        kobjs and attribute_bin should be propagated to kernfs_ops.
        sysfs_add_file_mode_ns() is updated so that it propagates presence /
        absence of the callbacks through _empty, _ro, _wo, _rw kernfs_ops.

      prepares the rest - open, release and poll.  There isn't much to do.
      Just renaming is enough.  As sysfs_file_operations and
      sysfs_bin_operations are identical now, use the same file_operations
      for both - kernfs_file_operations.

      We're in the process of separating out core sysfs functionality into

      rearranges mmap path so that the kernfs and sysfs parts are separate.
      
      sysfs_kf_bin_mmap() which handles the interaction with bin_attribute
      mmap method is factored out of sysfs_bin_mmap(), which is renamed to
      kernfs_file_mmap().  All vma ops are renamed accordingly.
      
      sysfs_bin_mmap() is updated such that it can be used for both file
      types.  This will eventually allow using the same file_operations for
      both file types, which is necessary to separate out kernfs.

      We're in the process of separating out core sysfs functionality into
      kernfs which will deal with sysfs_dirents directly.  This patch
      rearranges read path so that the kernfs and sysfs parts are separate.
      
      * Regular file read path is refactored such that
        kernfs_seq_start/next/stop/show() handle all the boilerplate work
        including locking and updating event count for poll, while
        sysfs_kf_seq_show() deals with interaction with kobj show method.
      
      * Bin file read path is refactored such that kernfs_file_direct_read()
        handles all the boilerplate work including buffer management and
        locking, while sysfs_kf_bin_read() deals with interaction with
        bin_attribute read method.

      v2: Dropped unnecessary zeroing of @count from sysfs_kf_seq_show().
          Add comments explaining single_open() behavior.  Both suggested by
          Pavel.
      
      v3: seq_stop() is called even after seq_start() failed.
          kernfs_seq_start() updated so that it doesn't unlock
          sysfs_open_file->mutex on failure so that kernfs_seq_stop()
          doesn't try to unlock an already unlocked mutex.  Reported by

      sysfs, kernfs: replace sysfs_dirent->s_dir.kobj and ->s_attr.[bin_]attr with ->priv · 7c6e2d36
      Tejun Heo authored
      
      
      A directory sysfs_dirent points to the associated kobj.  A regular or
      bin file points to the associated [bin_]attribute.  This patch
      replaces sysfs_dirent->s_dir.kobj and ->s_attr.[bin_]attr with void *
      ->priv.
      
      This is to prepare for kernfs interface so that sysfs can specify the
      private data in the same way for directories and files.  This lower
      debuggability but not by much - the whole thing was overlaid in a
      union anyway.  If debuggability becomes an issue, we can later add
      ->priv accessors which explicitly check for the sysfs_dirent type and
      performs casting.

         - cgroup destruction path could swamp system_wq possibly leading to
           deadlock.  This actually seems to happen in the wild with memcg
           because memcg destruction path adds nested dependency on system_wq.
      
           Resolved by isolating cgroup destruction work items on its
           dedicated workqueue.

      Pull vfs dentry reference count fix from Al Viro.
      
      This fixes a possible inode_permission NULL pointer dereference (and
      other problems) that were due to the root dentry count being decremented
      too much.  In commit 48a066e7 ("RCU'd vfsmounts") the placement of
      clearing the LOOKUP_RCU bit changed, and we then returned failure of
      incrementing the lockref on the parent dentry with LOOKUP_RCU cleared.
      
      But that meant we needed to go through the same cleanup routines that
      the later failures did wrt LOOKUP_ROOT and nd->root.

      arm64: Move PTE_PROT_NONE higher up · 3676f9ef
      Catalin Marinas authored
      PTE_PROT_NONE means that a pte is present but does not have any
      read/write attributes. However, setting the memory type like
      pgprot_writecombine() is allowed and such bits overlap with
      PTE_PROT_NONE. This causes mmap/munmap issues in drivers that change the
      vma->vm_pg_prot on PROT_NONE mappings.
      
      This patch reverts the PTE_FILE/PTE_PROT_NONE shift in commit
      59911ca4
      
       (ARM64: mm: Move PTE_PROT_NONE bit) and moves PTE_PROT_NONE
      together with the other software bits.

      This provides better performance compared to Device GRE and also allows
      unaligned accesses. Such memory is intended to be used with standard RAM
      (e.g. framebuffers) and not I/O.

      Failure to grab reference to parent dentry should go through the
      same cleanup as nd->seq mismatch.  As it is, we might end up with
      caller thinking it needs to path_put() nd->root, with obvious
      nasty results once we'd hit that bug enough times to drive the
      refcount of root dentry all the way to zero...
