      tracing: Have "enable" file use refcounts like the "filter" file · 40ee4dff
      Steven Rostedt authored
      The "enable" file for the event system can be removed when a module
      is unloaded and the event system only has events from that module.
      As the event system nr_events count goes to zero, it may be freed
      if its ref_count is also set to zero.
      Like the "filter" file, the "enable" file may be opened by a task and
      referenced later, after a module has been unloaded and the events for
      that event system have been removed.
      Although the "filter" file referenced the event system structure,
      the "enable" file only references a pointer to the event system
      name. Since the name is freed when the event system is removed,
      it is possible that an access to the "enable" file may reference
      a freed pointer.
      Update the "enable" file to use the subsystem_open() routine that
      the "filter" file uses, to keep a reference to the event system
      structure while the "enable" file is opened.

      tracing: Fix bug when reading system filters on module removal · e9dbfae5
      Steven Rostedt authored
      The event system is freed when its nr_events is set to zero. This happens
      when a module created an event system and then later the module is
      removed. Modules may share systems, so the system is allocated when
      it is created and freed when the modules are unloaded and all the
      events under the system are removed (nr_events set to zero).
      The problem arises when a task opened the "filter" file for the
      system. If the module is unloaded and it removed the last event for
      that system, the system structure is freed. If the task that opened
      the filter file accesses the "filter" file after the system has
      been freed, the system will access an invalid pointer.
      By adding a ref_count, and using it to keep track of what
      is using the event system, we can free it after all users
      are finished with the event system.

      vfs: i_state needs to be 'unsigned long' for now · 79568f5b
      Linus Torvalds authored
      Commit 13e12d14
       ("vfs: reorganize 'struct inode' layout a bit")
      moved things around a bit changed i_state to be unsigned int instead of
      unsigned long.  That was to help structure layout for the 64-bit case,
      and shrink 'struct inode' a bit (admittedly that only happened when
      spinlock debugging was on and i_flags didn't pack with i_lock).
      However, Meelis Roos reports that this results in unaligned exceptions
      on sprc, and it turns out that the bit-locking primitives that we use
      for the I_NEW bit want to use the bitops.  Which want 'unsigned long',
      not 'unsigned int'.
      We really should fix the bit locking code to not have that kind of
      requirement, but that's a much bigger change.  So for now, revert that
      field back to 'unsigned long' (but keep the other re-ordering changes
      from the commit that caused this).
      Andi points out that we have played games with this in 'struct page', so
      it's solvable with other hacks too, but since right now the struct inode
      size advantage only happens with some rare config options, it's not
      worth fighting.
      It _would_ be worth fixing the bitlocking code, though.  Especially
      since there is no type safety in the bitlocking code (this never caused
      any warnings, and worked fine on x86-64, because the bitlocks take a
      'void *' and x86-64 doesn't care that deeply about alignment).  So it's
      currently a very easy problem to trigger by mistake and never notice.
