      fuse: readdirplus: fix RCU walk · 6314efee
      Miklos Szeredi authored
      Doing dput(parent) is not valid in RCU walk mode.  In RCU mode it would
      probably be okay to update the parent flags, but it's actually not
      necessary most of the time...
      So only set the FUSE_I_ADVISE_RDPLUS flag on the parent when the entry was
      recently initialized by READDIRPLUS.
      This is achieved by setting FUSE_I_INIT_RDPLUS on entries added by
      READDIRPLUS and only dropping out of RCU mode if this flag is set.
      FUSE_I_INIT_RDPLUS is cleared once the FUSE_I_ADVISE_RDPLUS flag is set in
      the parent.

      fuse: hotfix truncate_pagecache() issue · 06a7c3c2
      Maxim Patlasov authored
      The way how fuse calls truncate_pagecache() from fuse_change_attributes()
      is completely wrong. Because, w/o i_mutex held, we never sure whether
      'oldsize' and 'attr->size' are valid by the time of execution of
      truncate_pagecache(inode, oldsize, attr->size). In fact, as soon as we
      released fc->lock in the middle of fuse_change_attributes(), we completely
      loose control of actions which may happen with given inode until we reach
      truncate_pagecache. The list of potentially dangerous actions includes
      mmap-ed reads and writes, ftruncate(2) and write(2) extending file size.
      The typical outcome of doing truncate_pagecache() with outdated arguments
      is data corruption from user point of view. This is (in some sense)
      acceptable in cases when the issue is triggered by a change of the file on
      the server (i.e. externally wrt fuse operation), but it is absolutely
      intolerable in scenarios when a single fuse client modifies a file without
      any external intervention. A real life case I discovered by fsx-linux
      looked like this:
      1. Shrinking ftruncate(2) comes to fuse_do_setattr(). The latter sends
      FUSE_SETATTR to the server synchronously, but before getting fc->lock ...
      2. fuse_dentry_revalidate() is asynchronously called. It sends FUSE_LOOKUP
      to the server synchronously, then calls fuse_change_attributes(). The
      latter updates i_size, releases fc->lock, but before comparing oldsize vs
      3. fuse_do_setattr() from the first step proceeds by acquiring fc->lock and
      updating attributes and i_size, but now oldsize is equal to
      outarg.attr.size because i_size has just been updated (step 2). Hence,
      fuse_do_setattr() returns w/o calling truncate_pagecache().
      4. As soon as ftruncate(2) completes, the user extends file size by
      write(2) making a hole in the middle of file, then reads data from the hole
      either by read(2) or mmap-ed read. The user expects to get zero data from
      the hole, but gets stale data because truncate_pagecache() is not executed
      The scenario above illustrates one side of the problem: not truncating the
      page cache even though we should. Another side corresponds to truncating
      page cache too late, when the state of inode changed significantly.
      Theoretically, the following is possible:
      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.
      The result will be the lost of data user wrote on the fourth step.
      The patch is a hotfix resolving the issue in a simplistic way: let's skip
      dangerous i_size update and truncate_pagecache if an operation changing
      file size is in progress. This simplistic approach looks correct for the
      cases w/o external changes. And to handle them properly, more sophisticated
      and intrusive techniques (e.g. NFS-like one) would be required. I'd like to
      postpone it until the issue is well discussed on the mailing list(s).
      Changed in v2:
       - improved patch description to cover both sides of the issue.

      fuse: add support of async IO · 01e9d11a
      Maxim Patlasov authored
      The patch implements a framework to process an IO request asynchronously. The
      idea is to associate several fuse requests with a single kiocb by means of
      fuse_io_priv structure. The structure plays the same role for FUSE as 'struct
      dio' for direct-io.c.
      The framework is supposed to be used like this:
       - someone (who wants to process an IO asynchronously) allocates fuse_io_priv
         and initializes it setting 'async' field to non-zero value.
       - as soon as fuse request is filled, it can be submitted (in non-blocking way)
         by fuse_async_req_send()
       - when all submitted requests are ACKed by userspace, io->reqs drops to zero
         triggering aio_complete()
      In case of IO initiated by libaio, aio_complete() will finish processing the
      same way as in case of dio_complete() calling aio_complete(). But the
      framework may be also used for internal FUSE use when initial IO request
      was synchronous (from user perspective), but it's beneficial to process it
      asynchronously. Then the caller should wait on kiocb explicitly and
      aio_complete() will wake the caller up.

      fuse: make request allocations for background processing explicit · 8b41e671
      Maxim Patlasov authored
      There are two types of processing requests in FUSE: synchronous (via
      fuse_request_send()) and asynchronous (via adding to fc->bg_queue).
      Fortunately, the type of processing is always known in advance, at the time
      of request allocation. This preparatory patch utilizes this fact making
      fuse_get_req() aware about the type. Next patches will use it.

      fuse: categorize fuse_get_req() · b111c8c0
      Maxim Patlasov authored
      The patch categorizes all fuse_get_req() invocations into two categories:
       - fuse_get_req_nopages(fc) - when caller doesn't care about req->pages
       - fuse_get_req(fc, n) - when caller need n page pointers (n > 0)
      Adding fuse_get_req_nopages() helps to avoid numerous fuse_get_req(fc, 0)
      scattered over code. Now it's clear from the first glance when a caller need
      fuse_req with page pointers.
      The patch doesn't make any logic changes. In multi-page case, it silly
      allocates array of FUSE_MAX_PAGES_PER_REQ page pointers. This will be amended

      fuse: implement NFS-like readdirplus support · 0b05b183
      Anand V. Avati authored
      This patch implements readdirplus support in FUSE, similar to NFS.
      The payload returned in the readdirplus call contains
      'fuse_entry_out' structure thereby providing all the necessary inputs
      for 'faking' a lookup() operation on the spot.
      If the dentry and inode already existed (for e.g. in a re-run of ls -l)
      then just the inode attributes timeout and dentry timeout are refreshed.
      With a simple client->network->server implementation of a FUSE based
      filesystem, the following performance observations were made:
      Test: Performing a filesystem crawl over 20,000 files with
      sh# time ls -lR /mnt
      Without readdirplus:
      Run 1: 18.1s
      Run 2: 16.0s
      Run 3: 16.2s
      With readdirplus:
      Run 1: 4.1s
      Run 2: 3.8s
      Run 3: 3.8s
      The performance improvement is significant as it avoided 20,000 upcalls
      calls (lookup). Cache consistency is no worse than what already is.

      userns: Support fuse interacting with multiple user namespaces · 499dcf20
      Eric W. Biederman authored
      Use kuid_t and kgid_t in struct fuse_conn and struct fuse_mount_data.
      The connection between between a fuse filesystem and a fuse daemon is
      established when a fuse filesystem is mounted and provided with a file
      descriptor the fuse daemon created by opening /dev/fuse.
      For now restrict the communication of uids and gids between the fuse
      filesystem and the fuse daemon to the initial user namespace.  Enforce
      this by verifying the file descriptor passed to the mount of fuse was
      opened in the initial user namespace.  Ensuring the mount happens in
      the initial user namespace is not necessary as mounts from non-initial
      user namespaces are not yet allowed.
      In fuse_req_init_context convert the currrent fsuid and fsgid into the
      initial user namespace for the request that will be sent to the fuse
      In fuse_fill_attr convert the uid and gid passed from the fuse daemon
      from the initial user namespace into kuids and kgids.
      In iattr_to_fattr called from fuse_setattr convert kuids and kgids
      into the uids and gids in the initial user namespace before passing
      them to the fuse filesystem.
      In fuse_change_attributes_common called from fuse_dentry_revalidate,
      fuse_permission, fuse_geattr, and fuse_setattr, and fuse_iget convert
      the uid and gid from the fuse daemon into a kuid and a kgid to store
      on the fuse inode.
      By default fuse mounts are restricted to task whose uid, suid, and
      euid matches the fuse user_id and whose gid, sgid, and egid matches
      the fuse group id.  Convert the user_id and group_id mount options
      into kuids and kgids at mount time, and use uid_eq and gid_eq to
      compare the in fuse_allow_task.

      FUSE: Notifying the kernel of deletion. · 451d0f59
      John Muir authored
      Allows a FUSE file-system to tell the kernel when a file or directory is
      deleted. If the specified dentry has the specified inode number, the kernel will
      unhash it.
      The current 'fuse_notify_inval_entry' does not cause the kernel to clean up
      directories that are in use properly, and as a result the users of those
      directories see incorrect semantics from the file-system. The error condition
      seen when 'fuse_notify_inval_entry' is used to notify of a deleted directory is
      avoided when 'fuse_notify_delete' is used instead.
      The following scenario demonstrates the difference:
      1. User A chdirs into 'testdir' and starts reading 'testfile'.
      2. User B rm -rf 'testdir'.
      3. User B creates 'testdir'.
      4. User C chdirs into 'testdir'.
      If you run the above within the same machine on any file-system (including fuse
      file-systems), there is no problem: user C is able to chdir into the new
      testdir. The old testdir is removed from the dentry tree, but still open by user
      If operations 2 and 3 are performed via the network such that the fuse
      file-system uses one of the notify functions to tell the kernel that the nodes
      are gone, then the following error occurs for user C while user A holds the
      original directory open:
      muirj@empacher:~> ls /test/testdir
      ls: cannot access /test/testdir: No such file or directory
      The issue here is that the kernel still has a dentry for testdir, and so it is
      requesting the attributes for the old directory, while the file-system is
      responding that the directory no longer exists.
      If on the other hand, if the file-system can notify the kernel that the
      directory is deleted using the new 'fuse_notify_delete' function, then the above
      ls will find the new directory as expected.

      Commit a9ff4f87
       "fuse: support BSD locking semantics" overlooked a
      number of issues with supporing flock locks over existing POSIX
      locking infrastructure:
        - it's not backward compatible, passing flock(2) calls to userspace
          unconditionally (if userspace sets FUSE_POSIX_LOCKS)
        - it doesn't cater for the fact that flock locks are automatically
          unlocked on file release
        - it doesn't take into account the fact that flock exclusive locks
          (write locks) don't need an fd opened for write.
      The last one invalidates the original premise of the patch that flock
      locks can be emulated with POSIX locks.
      This patch fixes the first two issues.  The last one needs to be fixed
      in userspace if the filesystem assumed that a write lock will happen

      fuse: separate queue for FORGET requests · 07e77dca
      Miklos Szeredi authored
      Terje Malmedal reports that a fuse filesystem with 32 million inodes
      on a machine with lots of memory can go unresponsive for up to 30
      minutes when all those inodes are evicted from the icache.
      The reason is that FORGET messages, sent when the inode is evicted,
      are queued up together with regular filesystem requests, and while the
      huge queue of FORGET messages are processed no other filesystem
      operation can proceed.
      Since a full fuse request structure is allocated for each inode, these
      take up quite a bit of memory as well.
      To solve these issues, create a slim 'fuse_forget_link' structure
      containing just the minimum of information required to send the FORGET
      request and chain these on a separate queue.
      When userspace is asking for a request make sure that FORGET and
      non-FORGET requests are selected fairly: for each 8 non-FORGET allow
      16 FORGET requests.  This will make sure FORGETs do not pile up, yet
      other requests are also allowed to proceed while the queued FORGETs
      are processed.

      fuse: add retrieve request · 2d45ba38
      Miklos Szeredi authored
      Userspace filesystem can request data to be retrieved from the inode's
      mapping.  This request is synchronous and the retrieved data is queued
      as a new request.  If the write to the fuse device returns an error
      then the retrieve request was not completed and a reply will not be
      Only present pages are returned in the retrieve reply.  Retrieving
      stops when it finds a non-present page and only data prior to that is
      This request doesn't change the dirty state of pages.

      fuse: add store request · a1d75f25
      Miklos Szeredi authored
      Userspace filesystem can request data to be stored in the inode's
      mapping.  This request is synchronous and has no reply.  If the write
      to the fuse device returns an error then the store request was not
      fully completed (but may have updated some pages).
      If the stored data overflows the current file size, then the size is
      extended, similarly to a write(2) on the filesystem.
      Pages which have been completely stored are marked uptodate.

      fuse: allow splice to move pages · ce534fb0
      Miklos Szeredi authored
      When splicing buffers to the fuse device with SPLICE_F_MOVE, try to
      move pages from the pipe buffer into the page cache.  This allows
      populating the fuse filesystem's cache without ever touching the page
      contents, i.e. zero copy read capability.
      The following steps are performed when trying to move a page into the
      page cache:
       - buf->ops->confirm() to make sure the new page is uptodate
       - buf->ops->steal() to try to remove the new page from it's previous place
       - remove_from_page_cache() on the old page
       - add_to_page_cache_locked() on the new page
      If any of the above steps fail (non fatally) then the code falls back
      to copying the page.  In particular ->steal() will fail if there are
      external references (other than the page cache and the pipe buffer) to
      the page.
      Also since the remove_from_page_cache() + add_to_page_cache_locked()
      are non-atomic it is possible that the page cache is repopulated in
      between the two and add_to_page_cache_locked() will fail.  This could
      be fixed by creating a new atomic replace_page_cache_page() function.
      fuse_readpages_end() needed to be reworked so it works even if
      page->mapping is NULL for some or all pages which can happen if the
      add_to_page_cache_locked() failed.
      A number of sanity checks were added to make sure the stolen pages
      don't have weird flags set, etc...  These could be moved into generic
      splice/steal code.

      fuse: invalidation reverse calls · 3b463ae0
      John Muir authored
      Add notification messages that allow the filesystem to invalidate VFS
      Two notifications are added:
       1) inode invalidation
         - invalidate cached attributes
         - invalidate a range of pages in the page cache (this is optional)
       2) dentry invalidation
         - try to invalidate a subtree in the dentry cache
      Care must be taken while accessing the 'struct super_block' for the
      mount, as it can go away while an invalidation is in progress.  To
      prevent this, introduce a rw-semaphore, that is taken for read during
      the invalidation and taken for write in the ->kill_sb callback.

      fuse: allow umask processing in userspace · e0a43ddc
      Miklos Szeredi authored
      This patch lets filesystems handle masking the file mode on creation.
      This is needed if filesystem is using ACLs.
       - The CREATE, MKDIR and MKNOD requests are extended with a "umask"
       - A new FUSE_DONT_MASK flag is added to the INIT request/reply.  With
         this the filesystem may request that the create mode is not masked.
