      pstore: Implement show_options · 349d7438
      David Howells authored
      Implement the show_options superblock op for pstore as part of a bid to get
      rid of s_options and generic_show_options() to make it easier to implement
      a context-based mount where the mount options can be passed individually
      over a file descriptor.

      pstore: Solve lockdep warning by moving inode locks · 3a7d2fd1
      Kees Cook authored
      Lockdep complains about a possible deadlock between mount and unlink
      (which is technically impossible), but fixing this improves possible
      future multiple-backend support, and keeps locking in the right order.
      The lockdep warning could be triggered by unlinking a file in the
      pstore filesystem:
        -> #1 (&sb->s_type->i_mutex_key#14){++++++}:
        -> #0 (&psinfo->read_mutex){+.+.+.}:
        Possible unsafe locking scenario:
              CPU0                    CPU1

      pstore: Protect unlink with read_mutex · e9e360b0
      Namhyung Kim authored
      When update_ms is set, pstore_get_records() will be called when there's
      a new entry.  But unlink can be called at the same time and might
      contend with the open-read-close loop.  Depending on the implementation
      of platform driver, it may be safe or not.  But I think it'd be better
      to protect those race in the first place.

      pstore: Add ftrace timestamp counter · fbccdeb8
      Joel Fernandes authored
      In preparation for merging the per CPU buffers into one buffer when
      we retrieve the pstore ftrace data, we store the timestamp as a
      counter in the ftrace pstore record.  We store the CPU number as well
      if !PSTORE_CPU_IN_IP, in this case we shift the counter and may lose
      ordering there but we preserve the same record size. The timestamp counter
      is also racy, and not doing any locking or synchronization here results
      in the benefit of lower overhead. Since we don't care much here for exact
      ordering of function traces across CPUs, we don't synchronize and may lose
      some counter updates but I'm ok with that.
      Using trace_clock() results in much lower performance so avoid using it
      since we don't want accuracy in timestamp and need a rough ordering to
      perform merge.

      pstore: drop file opened reference count · 52d210d9
      Geliang Tang authored
      In ee1d2674 ("pstore: add pstore unregister") I added:
      	.owner = THIS_MODULE,
      in both pstore_fs_type and pstore_file_operations to increase a reference
      count when pstore filesystem is mounted and pstore file is opened.
      But, it's repetitive. There is no need to increase the opened reference
      count. We only need to increase the mounted reference count. When a file
      is opened, the filesystem can't be unmounted. Hence the pstore module
      can't be unloaded either.
      So I drop the opened reference count in this patch.
      Fixes: ee1d2674

      mm, fs: get rid of PAGE_CACHE_* and page_cache_{get,release} macros · 09cbfeaf
      Kirill A. Shutemov authored
      PAGE_CACHE_{SIZE,SHIFT,MASK,ALIGN} macros were introduced *long* time
      ago with promise that one day it will be possible to implement page
      cache with bigger chunks than PAGE_SIZE.
      This promise never materialized.  And unlikely will.
      We have many places where PAGE_CACHE_SIZE assumed to be equal to
      PAGE_SIZE.  And it's constant source of confusion on whether
      PAGE_CACHE_* or PAGE_* constant should be used in a particular case,
      especially on the border between fs and mm.
      Global switching to PAGE_CACHE_SIZE != PAGE_SIZE would cause to much
      breakage to be doable.
      Let's stop pretending that pages in page cache are special.  They are
      The changes are pretty straight-forward:
       - <foo> << (PAGE_CACHE_SHIFT - PAGE_SHIFT) -> <foo>;
       - <foo> >> (PAGE_CACHE_SHIFT - PAGE_SHIFT) -> <foo>;
       - page_cache_get() -> get_page();
       - page_cache_release() -> put_page();
      This patch contains automated changes generated with coccinelle using
      script below.  For some reason, coccinelle doesn't patch header files.
      I've called spatch for them manually.
      The only adjustment after coccinelle is revert of changes to
      PAGE_CAHCE_ALIGN definition: we are going to drop it later.
      There are few places in the code where coccinelle didn't reach.  I'll
      fix them manually in a separate patch.  Comments and documentation also
      will be addressed with the separate patch.

      pstore: Fix duplicate {console,ftrace}-efi entries · d4bf205d

      The pstore filesystem still creates duplicate filename/inode pairs for

      fs: push sync_filesystem() down to the file system's remount_fs() · 02b9984d
      Theodore Ts'o authored
      Previously, the no-op "mount -o mount /dev/xxx" operation when the
      file system is already mounted read-write causes an implied,
      unconditional syncfs().  This seems pretty stupid, and it's certainly
      documented or guaraunteed to do this, nor is it particularly useful,
      except in the case where the file system was mounted rw and is getting
      remounted read-only.
      However, it's possible that there might be some file systems that are
      actually depending on this behavior.  In most file systems, it's
      probably fine to only call sync_filesystem() when transitioning from
      read-write to read-only, and there are some file systems where this is
      not needed at all (for example, for a pseudo-filesystem or something
      like romfs).

      efi_pstore: Add a sequence counter to a variable name · 755d4fe4
      Seiji Aguchi authored
      Currently, a variable name, which identifies each entry, consists of type, id and ctime.
      But if multiple events happens in a short time, a second/third event may fail to log because
      efi_pstore can't distinguish each event with current variable name.
      A reasonable way to identify all events precisely is introducing a sequence counter to
      the variable name.
      The sequence counter has already supported in a pstore layer with "oopscount".
      So, this patch adds it to a variable name.
      Also, it is passed to read/erase callbacks of platform drivers in accordance with
      the modification of the variable name.
        <before applying this patch>
       a variable name of first event: dump-type0-1-12345678
       a variable name of second event: dump-type0-1-12345678
       If multiple events happen in a short time, efi_pstore can't distinguish them because
       variable names are same among them.
        <after applying this patch>
       it can be distinguishable by adding a sequence counter as follows.
       a variable name of first event: dump-type0-1-1-12345678
       a variable name of Second event: dump-type0-1-2-12345678
        sequence counter: 1(first event), 2(second event)
      In case of a write callback executed in pstore_console_write(), "0" is added to
      an argument of the write callback because it just logs all kernel messages and
      doesn't need to care about multiple events.

      efi_pstore: Add ctime to argument of erase callback · a9efd39c
      Seiji Aguchi authored
      Currently, a variable name, which is used to identify each log entry, consists of type,
      id and ctime. But an erase callback does not use ctime.
      If efi_pstore supported just one log, type and id were enough.
      However, in case of supporting multiple logs, it doesn't work because
      it can't distinguish each entry without ctime at erasing time.
       As you can see below, efi_pstore can't differentiate first event from second one without ctime.
       a variable name of first event: dump-type0-1-12345678
       a variable name of second event: dump-type0-1-23456789
        ctime:12345678, 23456789
      This patch adds ctime to an argument of an erase callback.
      It works across reboots because ctime of pstore means the date that the record was originally stored.
      To do this, efi_pstore saves the ctime to variable name at writing time and passes it to pstore
      at reading time.

      pstore: Add persistent function tracing · 060287b8
      Anton Vorontsov authored
      With this support kernel can save function call chain log into a
      persistent ram buffer that can be decoded and dumped after reboot
      through pstore filesystem. It can be used to determine what function
      was last called before a reset or panic.
      We store the log in a binary format and then decode it at read time.
      Mostly the code comes from trace_persistent.c driver found in the
      Android git tree, written by Colin Cross <ccross@android.com>
      (according to sign-off history). I reworked the driver a little bit,
      and ported it to pstore.
