      jbd: fix race in buffer processing in commit code · a61d90d7
      Jan Kara authored
      
      
      In commit code, we scan buffers attached to a transaction.  During this
      scan, we sometimes have to drop j_list_lock and then we recheck whether
      the journal buffer head didn't get freed by journal_try_to_free_buffers().
       But checking for buffer_jbd(bh) isn't enough because a new journal head
      could get attached to our buffer head.  So add a check whether the journal
      head remained the same and whether it's still at the same transaction and
      list.
      
      This is a nasty bug and can cause problems like memory corruption (use after
      free) or trigger various assertions in JBD code (observed).

      autofs4: remove hashed check in validate_wait() · 463aea1a
      Ian Kent authored
      
      
      The recent ->lookup() deadlock correction required the directory inode
      mutex to be dropped while waiting for expire completion.  We were
      concerned about side effects from this change and one has been identified.
      
      I saw several error messages.
      
      They cause autofs to become quite confused and don't really point to the
      actual problem.
      
      Things like:
      
      handle_packet_missing_direct:1376: can't find map entry for (43,1827932)
      
      which is usually totally fatal (although in this case it wouldn't be
      except that I treat is as such because it normally is).
      
      do_mount_direct: direct trigger not valid or already mounted
      /test/nested/g3c/s1/ss1
      
      which is recoverable, however if this problem is at play it can cause
      autofs to become quite confused as to the dependencies in the mount tree
      because mount triggers end up mounted multiple times.  It's hard to
      accurately check for this over mounting case and automount shouldn't need
      to if the kernel module is doing its job.
      
      There was one other message, similar in consequence of this last one but I
      can't locate a log example just now.
      
      When checking if a mount has already completed prior to adding a new mount
      request to the wait queue we check if the dentry is hashed and, if so, if
      it is a mount point.  But, if a mount successfully completed while we
      slept on the wait queue mutex the dentry must exist for the mount to have
      completed so the test is not really needed.
      
      Mounts can also be done on top of a global root dentry, so for the above
      case, where a mount request completes and the wait queue entry has already
      been removed, the hashed test returning false can cause an incorrect
      callback to the daemon.  Also, d_mountpoint() is not sufficient to check
      if a mount has completed for the multi-mount case when we don't have a
      real mount at the base of the tree.

      cls_cgroup: Fix oops when user send improperly 'tc filter add' request · 52ea3a56
      Minoru Usui authored
      I found a bug in cls_cgroup_change() in cls_cgroup.c.
      cls_cgroup_change() expected tca[TCA_OPTIONS] was set from user space properly,
      but tc in iproute2-2.6.29-1 (which I used) didn't set it.
      
      In the current source code of tc in git, it set tca[TCA_OPTIONS].
      
        git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/shemminger/iproute2.git
      
      
      
      If we always use a newest iproute2 in git when we use cls_cgroup, 
      we don't face this oops probably.
      But I think, kernel shouldn't panic regardless of use program's behaviour.

      r8169: fix crash when large packets are received · fdd7b4c3
      Eric Dumazet authored
      Michael Tokarev reported receiving a large packet could crash
      a machine with RTL8169 NIC.
      ( original thread at http://lkml.org/lkml/2009/6/8/192
      
       )
      
      Problem is this driver tells that NIC frames up to 16383 bytes
      can be received but provides skb to rx ring allocated with
      smaller sizes (1536 bytes in case standard 1500 bytes MTU is used)
      
      When a frame larger than what was allocated by driver is received,
      dma transfert can occurs past the end of buffer and corrupt
      kernel memory.
      
      Fix is to tell to NIC what is the maximum size a frame can be.
      
      This bug is very old, (before git introduction, linux-2.6.10), and 
      should be backported to stable versions.

      md/raid5: fix bug in reshape code when chunk_size decreases. · 0e6e0271
      NeilBrown authored
      
      
      Now that we support changing the chunksize, we calculate
      "reshape_sectors" to be the max of number of sectors in old
      and new chunk size.
      However there is one please where we still use 'chunksize'
      rather than 'reshape_sectors'.
      This causes a reshape that reduces the size of chunks to freeze.

      md/raid5 - avoid deadlocks in get_active_stripe during reshape · a8c906ca
      NeilBrown authored
      
      
      md has functionality to 'quiesce' and array so that all pending
      IO completed and no new IO starts.  This is used to achieve a
      stable state before making internal changes.
      
      Currently this quiescing applies equally to normal IO, resync
      IO, and reshape IO.
      However there is a problem with applying it to reshape IO.
      Reshape can have multiple 'stripe_heads' that must be active together.
      If the quiesce come between allocating the first and the last of
      such a collection, then we deadlock, as the last will not be allocated
      until the quiesce is lifted, the quiesce will not be lifted until the
      first (which has been allocated) gets used, and that first cannot be
      used until the last is allocated.
      
      It is not necessary to inhibit reshape IO when a quiesce is
      requested.  Those places in the code that require a full quiesce will
      ensure the reshape thread is not running at all.
      
      So allow reshape requests to get access to new stripe_heads without
      being blocked by a 'quiesce'.
      
      This only affects in-place reshapes (i.e. where the array does not
      grow or shrink) and these are only newly supported.  So this patch is
      not needed in earlier kernels.

      md/raid5: use conf->raid_disks in preference to mddev->raid_disk · f001a70c
      NeilBrown authored
      
      
      mddev->raid_disks can be changed and any time by a request from
      user-space.  It is a suggestion as to what number of raid_disks is
      desired.
      
      conf->raid_disks can only be changed by the raid5 module with suitable
      locks in place.  It is a statement as to the current number of
      raid_disks.
      
      There are two places where the latter should be used, but the former
      is used.  This can lead to a crash when reshaping an array.
      
      This patch changes to mddev-> to conf->
