      [PATCH] VFS: Make filldir_t and struct kstat deal in 64-bit inode numbers · afefdbb2
      David Howells authored
      
      
      These patches make the kernel pass 64-bit inode numbers internally when
      communicating to userspace, even on a 32-bit system.  They are required
      because some filesystems have intrinsic 64-bit inode numbers: NFS3+ and XFS
      for example.  The 64-bit inode numbers are then propagated to userspace
      automatically where the arch supports it.
      
      Problems have been seen with userspace (eg: ld.so) using the 64-bit inode
      number returned by stat64() or getdents64() to differentiate files, and
      failing because the 64-bit inode number space was compressed to 32-bits, and
      so overlaps occur.
      
      This patch:
      
      Make filldir_t take a 64-bit inode number and struct kstat carry a 64-bit
      inode number so that 64-bit inode numbers can be passed back to userspace.
      
      The stat functions then returns the full 64-bit inode number where
      available and where possible.  If it is not possible to represent the inode
      number supplied by the filesystem in the field provided by userspace, then
      error EOVERFLOW will be issued.
      
      Similarly, the getdents/readdir functions now pass the full 64-bit inode
      number to userspace where possible, returning EOVERFLOW instead when a
      directory entry is encountered that can't be properly represented.
      
      Note that this means that some inodes will not be stat'able on a 32-bit
      system with old libraries where they were before - but it does mean that
      there will be no ambiguity over what a 32-bit inode number refers to.
      
      Note similarly that directory scans may be cut short with an error on a
      32-bit system with old libraries where the scan would work before for the
      same reasons.
      
      It is judged unlikely that this situation will occur because modern glibc
      uses 64-bit capable versions of stat and getdents class functions
      exclusively, and that older systems are unlikely to encounter
      unrepresentable inode numbers anyway.

      [PATCH] provide kernel_execve on all architectures · fe74290d
      Arnd Bergmann authored
      
      
      This adds the new kernel_execve function on all architectures that were using
      _syscall3() to implement execve.
      
      The implementation uses code from the _syscall3 macros provided in the
      unistd.h header file.  I don't have cross-compilers for any of these
      architectures, so the patch is untested with the exception of i386.
      
      Most architectures can probably implement this in a nicer way in assembly or
      by combining it with the sys_execve implementation itself, but this should do
      it for now.

      [PATCH] namespaces: add nsproxy · ab516013
      Serge E. Hallyn authored
      
      
      This patch adds a nsproxy structure to the task struct.  Later patches will
      move the fs namespace pointer into this structure, and introduce a new utsname
      namespace into the nsproxy.
      
      The vserver and openvz functionality, then, would be implemented in large part
      by virtualizing/isolating more and more resources into namespaces, each
      contained in the nsproxy.

      incur spinlock deadlock.  This patch moves kfree function out scope of

      [PATCH] kill wall_jiffies · 8ef38609
      Atsushi Nemoto authored
      
      
      With 2.6.18-rc4-mm2, now wall_jiffies will always be the same as jiffies.
      So we can kill wall_jiffies completely.
      
      This is just a cleanup and logically should not change any real behavior
      except for one thing: RTC updating code in (old) ppc and xtensa use a
      condition "jiffies - wall_jiffies == 1".  This condition is never met so I
      suppose it is just a bug.  I just remove that condition only instead of
      kill the whole "if" block.

      [PATCH] simplify update_times (avoid jiffies/jiffies_64 aliasing problem) · 3171a030
      Atsushi Nemoto authored
      Pass ticks to do_timer() and update_times(), and adjust x86_64 and s390
      timer interrupt handler with this change.
      
      Currently update_times() calculates ticks by "jiffies - wall_jiffies", but
      callers of do_timer() should know how many ticks to update.  Passing ticks
      get rid of this redundant calculation.  Also there are another redundancy
      pointed out by Martin Schwidefsky.
      
      This cleanup make a barrier added by
      5aee405c
      
       needless.  So this patch removes
      it.
      
      As a bonus, this cleanup make wall_jiffies can be removed easily, since now
      wall_jiffies is always synced with jiffies.  (This patch does not really
      remove wall_jiffies.  It would be another cleanup patch)
