      jbd2/ocfs2: Fix block checksumming when a buffer is used in several transactions · 13ceef09
      Jan Kara authored
      OCFS2 uses t_commit trigger to compute and store checksum of the just
      committed blocks. When a buffer has b_frozen_data, checksum is computed
      for it instead of b_data but this can result in an old checksum being
      written to the filesystem in the following scenario:
      1) transaction1 is opened
      2) handle1 is opened
      3) journal_access(handle1, bh)
          - This sets jh->b_transaction to transaction1
      4) modify(bh)
      5) journal_dirty(handle1, bh)
      6) handle1 is closed
      7) start committing transaction1, opening transaction2
      8) handle2 is opened
      9) journal_access(handle2, bh)
          - This copies off b_frozen_data to make it safe for transaction1 to commit.
            jh->b_next_transaction is set to transaction2.
      10) jbd2_journal_write_metadata() checksums b_frozen_data
      11) the journal correctly writes b_frozen_data to the disk journal
      12) handle2 is closed
          - There was no dirty call for the bh on handle2, so it is never queued for
            any more journal operation
      13) Checkpointing finally happens, and it just spools the bh via normal buffer
      writeback.  This will write b_data, which was never triggered on and thus
      contains a wrong (old) checksum.
      This patch fixes the problem by calling the trigger at the moment data is
      frozen for journal commit - i.e., either when b_frozen_data is created by
      do_get_write_access or just before we write a buffer to the log if
      b_frozen_data does not exist. We also rename the trigger to t_frozen as
      that better describes when it is called.

      ocfs2/dlm: Remove BUG_ON from migration in the rare case of a down node · a39953dd
      Wengang Wang authored
      For migration, we are waiting for DLM_LOCK_RES_MIGRATING flag to be set
      before sending DLM_MIG_LOCKRES_MSG message to the target. We are using
      dlm_migration_can_proceed() for that purpose.  However, if the node is
      down, dlm_migration_can_proceed() will also return "go ahead".  In this
      rare case, the DLM_LOCK_RES_MIGRATING flag might not be set yet. Remove
      the BUG_ON() that trips over this condition.

      no need to read and duplicate them.

      x86: Force HPET readback_cmp for all ATI chipsets · 08be9796
      Thomas Gleixner authored
      commit 30a564be
       (x86, hpet: Restrict read back to affected ATI
      chipset) restricted the workaround for the HPET bug to SMX00
      chipsets. This was reasonable as those were the only ones against
      which we ever got a bug report.
      Stephan Wolf reported now that this patch breaks his IXP400 based
      machine. Though it's confirmed to work on other IXP400 based systems.
      To error out on the safe side, we force the HPET readback workaround
      for all ATI SMbus class chipsets.

      GFS2: rename causes kernel Oops · 728a756b
      Bob Peterson authored
      This patch fixes a kernel Oops in the GFS2 rename code.
      The problem was in the way the gfs2 directory code was trying
      to re-use sentinel directory entries.
      In the failing case, gfs2's rename function was renaming a
      file to another name that had the same non-trivial length.
      The file being renamed happened to be the first directory
      entry on the leaf block.
      First, the rename code (gfs2_rename in ops_inode.c) found the
      original directory entry and decided it could do its job by
      simply replacing the directory entry with another.  Therefore
      it determined correctly that no block allocations were needed.
      Next, the rename code deleted the old directory entry prior to
      replacing it with the new name.  Therefore, the soon-to-be
      replaced directory entry was temporarily made into a directory
      entry "sentinel" or a place holder at the start of a leaf block.
      Lastly, it went to re-add the replacement directory entry in
      that leaf block.  However, when gfs2_dirent_find_space was
      looking for space in the leaf block, it used the wrong value
      for the sentinel.  That threw off its calculations so later
      it decides it can't really re-use the sentinel and therefore
      must allocate a new leaf block.  But because it previously decided
      to re-use the directory entry, it didn't waste the time to
      grab a new block allocation for the inode.  Therefore, the
      inode's i_alloc pointer was still NULL and it crashes trying to
      reference it.
      In the case of sentinel directory entries, the entire dirent is
      reused, not just the "free space" portion of it, and therefore
      the function gfs2_dirent_find_space should use the value 0
      rather than GFS2_DIRENT_SIZE(0) for the actual dirent size.
      Fixing this calculation enables the reproducer programs to work

      GFS2: BUG in gfs2_adjust_quota · 8b421601
      Abhijith Das authored
      HighMem pages on i686 do not get mapped to the buffer_heads and this was
      causing a NULL pointer dereference when we were trying to memset page buffers
      to zero.
      We now use zero_user() that kmaps the page and directly manipulates page data.
      This patch also fixes a boundary condition that was incorrect.
