      IB/mlx4: Fix data corruption triggered by wrong headroom marking order · 6e694ea3
      Jack Morgenstein authored
      This is an addendum to commit 0e6e7416
       ("IB/mlx4: Handle new FW
      requirement for send request prefetching").  We also need to handle
      prefetch marking properly for S/G segments, or else the HCA may end up
      processing S/G segments that are not fully written and end up sending
      the wrong data.  This can actually cause data corruption in practice,
      especially on systems with relatively slow CPUs (where the HCA is more
      likely to prefetch while the CPU is in the middle of writing a work
      request into memory).
      We write S/G segments in reverse order into the WQE, in order to
      guarantee that the first dword of all cachelines containing S/G
      segments is written last (overwriting the headroom invalidation
      pattern).  The entire cacheline will thus contain valid data when the
      invalidation pattern is overwritten.

      clockevents: remove the suspend/resume workaround^Wthinko · b7e113dc
      Thomas Gleixner authored
      In a desparate attempt to fix the suspend/resume problem on Andrews
      VAIO I added a workaround which enforced the broadcast of the oneshot
      timer on resume. This was actually resolving the problem on the VAIO
      but was just a stupid workaround, which was not tackling the root
      cause: the assignement of lower idle C-States in the ACPI processor_idle
      code. The cpuidle patches, which utilize the dynamic tick feature and
      go faster into deeper C-states exposed the problem again. The correct
      solution is the previous patch, which prevents lower C-states across
      the suspend/resume.
      Remove the enforcement code, including the conditional broadcast timer
      arming, which helped to pamper over the real problem for quite a time.
      The oneshot broadcast flag for the cpu, which runs the resume code can
      never be set at the time when this code is executed. It only gets set,
      when the CPU is entering a lower idle C-State.

      ACPI: disable lower idle C-states across suspend/resume · b04e7bdb
      Thomas Gleixner authored
      device_suspend() calls ACPI suspend functions, which seems to have undesired
      side effects on lower idle C-states. It took me some time to realize that
      especially the VAIO BIOSes (both Andrews jinxed UP and my elfstruck SMP one)
      show this effect. I'm quite sure that other bug reports against suspend/resume
      about turning the system into a brick have the same root cause.
      After fishing in the dark for quite some time, I realized that removing the ACPI
      processor module before suspend (this removes the lower C-state functionality)
      made the problem disappear. Interestingly enough the propability of having a
      bricked box is influenced by various factors (interrupts, size of the ram image,
      ...). Even adding a bunch of printks in the wrong places made the problem go
      away. The previous periodic tick implementation simply pampered over the
      problem, which explains why the dyntick / clockevents changes made this more
      We avoid complex functionality during the boot process and we have to do the
      same during suspend/resume. It is a similar scenario and equaly fragile.
      Add suspend / resume functions to the ACPI processor code and disable the lower
      idle C-states across suspend/resume. Fall back to the default idle
      implementation (halt) instead.

      ocfs2: Pack vote message and response structures · 813d974c
      Sunil Mushran authored
      The ocfs2_vote_msg and ocfs2_response_msg structs needed to be
      packed to ensure similar sizeofs in 32-bit and 64-bit arches. Without this,
      we had inadvertantly broken 32/64 bit cross mounts.

      ocfs2: Don't double set write parameters · 5c26a7b7
      Mark Fasheh authored
      The target page offsets were being incorrectly set a second time in
      ocfs2_prepare_page_for_write(), which was causing problems on a 16k page
      size kernel. Additionally, ocfs2_write_failure() was incorrectly using those
      parameters instead of the parameters for the individual page being cleaned

      ocfs2: Fix pos/len passed to ocfs2_write_cluster · db56246c
      Mark Fasheh authored
      This was broken for file systems whose cluster size is greater than page
      size. Pos needs to be incremented as we loop through the descriptors, and
      len needs to be capped to the size of a single cluster.

      ocfs2: Allow smaller allocations during large writes · 415cb800
      Mark Fasheh authored
      The ocfs2 write code loops through a page much like the block code, except
      that ocfs2 allocation units can be any size, including larger than page
      size. Typically it's equal to or larger than page size - most kernels run 4k
      pages, the minimum ocfs2 allocation (cluster) size.
      Some changes introduced during 2.6.23 changed the way writes to pages are
      handled, and inadvertantly broke support for > 4k page size. Instead of just
      writing one cluster at a time, we now handle the whole page in one pass.
      This means that multiple (small) seperate allocations might happen in the
      same pass. The allocation code howver typically optimizes by getting the
      maximum which was reserved. This triggered a BUG_ON in the extend code where
      it'd ask for a single bit (for one part of a > 4k page) and get back more
      than it asked for.
      Fix this by providing a variant of the high level allocation function which
      allows the caller to specify a maximum. The traditional function remains and
      just calls the new one with a maximum determined from the initial

      signalfd simplification · b8fceee1
      Davide Libenzi authored
      This simplifies signalfd code, by avoiding it to remain attached to the
      sighand during its lifetime.
      In this way, the signalfd remain attached to the sighand only during
      poll(2) (and select and epoll) and read(2).  This also allows to remove
      all the custom "tsk == current" checks in kernel/signal.c, since
      dequeue_signal() will only be called by "current".
      I think this is also what Ben was suggesting time ago.
      The external effect of this, is that a thread can extract only its own
      private signals and the group ones.  I think this is an acceptable
      behaviour, in that those are the signals the thread would be able to
      fetch w/out signalfd.

      we upgraded the kernel of a nfs-server from to Since

      These random characters in the second line are caused by a bug in
      (Note: there are two previous __svc_print_addr(sin, buf, sizeof(buf))
      calls in this function, either of which would initialize buf correctly;
      but both are inside "if"'s and are not necessarily executed.  This is
      less obvious in the second case, which is inside a dprintk(), which is a
      macro which expands to an if statement.)
