      fuse: fix fallocate vs. ftruncate race · 0ab08f57
      Maxim Patlasov authored
      
      
      A former patch introducing FUSE_I_SIZE_UNSTABLE flag provided detailed
      description of races between ftruncate and anyone who can extend i_size:
      
      > 1. As in the previous scenario fuse_dentry_revalidate() discovered that i_size
      > changed (due to our own fuse_do_setattr()) and is going to call
      > truncate_pagecache() for some  'new_size' it believes valid right now. But by
      > the time that particular truncate_pagecache() is called ...
      > 2. fuse_do_setattr() returns (either having called truncate_pagecache() or
      > not -- it doesn't matter).
      > 3. The file is extended either by write(2) or ftruncate(2) or fallocate(2).
      > 4. mmap-ed write makes a page in the extended region dirty.
      
      This patch adds necessary bits to fuse_file_fallocate() to protect from that
      race.

      fuse: wait for writeback in fuse_file_fallocate() · bde52788
      Maxim Patlasov authored
      
      
      The patch fixes a race between mmap-ed write and fallocate(PUNCH_HOLE):
      
      1) An user makes a page dirty via mmap-ed write.
      2) The user performs fallocate(2) with mode == PUNCH_HOLE|KEEP_SIZE
         and <offset, size> covering the page.
      3) Before truncate_pagecache_range call from fuse_file_fallocate,
         the page goes to write-back. The page is fully processed by fuse_writepage
         (including end_page_writeback on the page), but fuse_flush_writepages did
         nothing because fi->writectr < 0.
      4) truncate_pagecache_range is called and fuse_file_fallocate is finishing
         by calling fuse_release_nowrite. The latter triggers processing queued
         write-back request which will write stale data to the hole soon.
      
      Changed in v2 (thanks to Brian for suggestion):
       - Do not truncate page cache until FUSE_FALLOCATE succeeded. Otherwise,
         we can end up in returning -ENOTSUPP while user data is already punched
         from page cache. Use filemap_write_and_wait_range() instead.
      Changed in v3 (thanks to Miklos for suggestion):
       - fuse_wait_on_writeback() is prone to livelocks; use fuse_set_nowrite()
         instead. So far as we need a dirty-page barrier only, fuse_sync_writes()
         should be enough.
       - rebased to for-linus branch of fuse.git

      partitions/efi: loosen check fot pmbr size in lba · 6b02fa59
      Davidlohr Bueso authored
      Matt found that commit 27a7c642 ("partitions/efi: account for pmbr
      size in lba") caused his GPT formatted eMMC device not to boot.  The
      reason is that this commit enforced Linux to always check the lesser of
      the whole disk or 2Tib for the pMBR size in LBA.  While most disk
      partitioning tools out there create a pMBR with these characteristics,
      Microsoft does not, as it always sets the entry to the maximum 32-bit
      limitation - even though a drive may be smaller than that[1].
      
      Loosen this check and only verify that the size is either the whole disk
      or 0xFFFFFFFF.  No tool in its right mind would set it to any value
      other than these.
