      tracing: Buffer the output of seq_file in case of filled buffer · a63ce5b3
      Steven Rostedt authored
      
      
      If the seq_read fills the buffer it will call s_start again on the next
      itertation with the same position. This causes a problem with the
      function_graph tracer because it consumes the iteration in order to
      determine leaf functions.
      
      What happens is that the iterator stores the entry, and the function
      graph plugin will look at the next entry. If that next entry is a return
      of the same function and task, then the function is a leaf and the
      function_graph plugin calls ring_buffer_read which moves the ring buffer
      iterator forward (the trace iterator still points to the function start
      entry).
      
      The copying of the trace_seq to the seq_file buffer will fail if the
      seq_file buffer is full. The seq_read will not show this entry.
      The next read by userspace will cause seq_read to again call s_start
      which will reuse the trace iterator entry (the function start entry).
      But the function return entry was already consumed. The function graph
      plugin will think that this entry is a nested function and not a leaf.
      
      To solve this, the trace code now checks the return status of the
      seq_printf (trace_print_seq). If the writing to the seq_file buffer
      fails, we set a flag in the iterator (leftover) and we do not reset
      the trace_seq buffer. On the next call to s_start, we check the leftover
      flag, and if it is set, we just reuse the trace_seq buffer and do not
      call into the plugin print functions.

      tracing: Add pipe_close interface · c521efd1
      Steven Rostedt authored
      
      
      An ftrace plugin can add a pipe_open interface when the user opens
      trace_pipe. But if the plugin allocates something within the pipe_open
      it can not free it because there exists no pipe_close. The hook to
      the trace file open has a corresponding close. The closing of the
      trace_pipe file should also have a corresponding close.

      x86, apic: Enable lapic nmi watchdog on AMD Family 11h · 7d1849af

      The x86 lapic nmi watchdog does not recognize AMD Family 11h,
      resulting in:
      
        NMI watchdog: CPU not supported
      
      As far as I can see from available documentation (the BKDM),
      family 11h looks identical to family 10h as far as the PMU
      is concerned.
      
      Extending the check to accept family 11h results in:
      
        Testing NMI watchdog ... OK.

      laptop for a couple of weeks now without problems.

      GFS2: Fix glock refcount issues · 26bb7505
      Steven Whitehouse authored
      
      
      This patch fixes some ref counting issues. Firstly by moving
      the point at which we drop the ref count after a dlm lock
      operation has completed we ensure that we never call
      gfs2_glock_hold() on a lock with a zero ref count.
      
      Secondly, by using atomic_dec_and_lock() in gfs2_glock_put()
      we ensure that at no time will a glock with zero ref count
      appear on the lru_list. That means that we can remove the
      check for this in our shrinker (which was racy).

      GFS2: drop rindex glock to refresh rindex list · 9ae3c6de
      Benjamin Marzinski authored
      
      
      When a gfs2 filesystem is grown, it needs to rebuild the rindex list to be able
      to use the new space.  gfs2 does this when the rindex is marked not uptodate,
      which happens when the rindex glock is dropped.  However, on a single node
      setup, there is never any reason to drop the rindex glock, so gfs2 never
      invalidates the the rindex. This patch makes gfs2 automatically drop the
      rindex glock after filesystem grows, so it can refresh the rindex list.

      GFS2: Tag all metadata with jid · 0ab7d13f
      Steven Whitehouse authored
      
      
      There are two spare field in the header common to all GFS2
      metadata. One is just the right size to fit a journal id
      in it, and this patch updates the journal code so that each
      time a metadata block is modified, we tag it with the journal
      id of the node which is performing the modification.
      
      The reason for this is that it should make it much easier to
      debug issues which arise if we can tell which node was the
      last to modify a particular metadata block.
      
      Since the field is updated before the block is written into
      the journal, each journal should only contain metadata which
      is tagged with its own journal id. The one exception to this
      is the journal header block, which might have a different node's
      id in it, if that journal was recovered by another node in the
      cluster.
      
      Thus each journal will contain a record of which nodes recovered
      it, via the journal header.
      
      The other field in the metadata header could potentially be
      used to hold information about what kind of operation was
      performed, but for the time being we just zero it on each
      transaction so that if we use it for that in future, we'll
      know that the information (where it exists) is reliable.
      
      I did consider using the other field to hold the journal
      sequence number, however since in GFS2's journaling we write
      the modified data into the journal and not the original
      data, this gives no information as to what action caused the
      modification, so I think we can probably come up with a better
      use for those 64 bits in the future.

      GFS2: Remove dirent_first() function · 1579343a
      Steven Whitehouse authored
      
      
      This function only had one caller left, and that caller only
      called it for leaf blocks, hence one branch of the "if" was
      never taken. In addition the call to get_left had already
      verified the metadata type, so the function can be reduced
      to a single line of code in its caller.

      Currently gfs2 issues barrier unconditionally.  There are various reasons

      large battert backed caches.  Add a nobarrier option that matches xfs and
