2006-03-11[PATCH] ext3: fix nobh mode for chattr +j inodesBadari Pulavarty
One can do "chattr +j" on a file to change its journalling mode. Fix writeback mode with "nobh" handling for it. Even though, we mount ext3 filesystem in writeback mode with "nobh" option, some one can do "chattr +j" on a single file to force it to do journalled mode. In order to do journaling, ext3_block_truncate_page() need to fallback to default case of creating buffers and adding them to transaction etc. Signed-off-by: Badari Pulavarty <> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
2006-03-11[PATCH] ext3: ext3_symlink should use GFP_NOFS allocations insideKirill Korotaev
This patch fixes illegal __GFP_FS allocation inside ext3 transaction in ext3_symlink(). Such allocation may re-enter ext3 code from try_to_free_pages. But JBD/ext3 code keeps a pointer to current journal handle in task_struct and, hence, is not reentrable. This bug led to "Assertion failure in journal_dirty_metadata()" messages.

2006-03-08[NET] compat ifconf: fix limitsRandy Dunlap
A recent change to compat. dev_ifconf() in fs/compat_ioctl.c causes ifconf data to be truncated 1 entry too early when copying it to userspace. The correct amount of data (length) is returned, but the final entry is empty (zero, not filled in). The for-loop 'i' check should use <= to allow the final struct ifreq32 to be copied. I also used the ifconf-corruption program in kernel bugzilla #4746 to make sure that this change does not re-introduce the corruption. Signed-off-by: Randy Dunlap <> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <>

2006-03-08[PATCH] s390: dasd partition detectionHorst Hummel
DASD allows to open a device as soon as gendisk is registered, which means the device is a fake device (capacity=0) and we do know nothing about blocksize and partitions at that point of time. In case the device is opened by someone, the bdev and inode creation is done with the fake device info and the following partition detection code is just using the wrong data. To avoid this modify the DASD state machine to make sure that the open is rejected until the device analysis is either finished or an unformatted device was detected.

2006-03-08[PATCH] fix file countingDipankar Sarma
I have benchmarked this on an x86_64 NUMA system and see no significant performance difference on kernbench. Tested on both x86_64 and powerpc. The way we do file struct accounting is not very suitable for batched freeing. For scalability reasons, file accounting was constructor/destructor based. This meant that nr_files was decremented only when the object was removed from the slab cache. This is susceptible to slab fragmentation. With RCU based file structure, consequent batched freeing and a test program like Serge's, we just speed this up and end up with a very fragmented slab - llm22:~ # cat /proc/sys/fs/file-nr 587730 0 758844 At the same time, I see only a 2000+ objects in filp cache. The following patch I fixes this problem. This patch changes the file counting by removing the filp_count_lock. Instead we use a separate percpu counter, nr_files, for now and all accesses to it are through get_nr_files() api. In the sysctl handler for nr_files, we populate files_stat.nr_files before returning to user. Counting files as an when they are created and destroyed (as opposed to inside slab) allows us to correctly count open files with RCU. Signed-off-by: Dipankar Sarma <> Cc: "Paul E.

2006-03-08[PATCH] udf: fix uid/gid options and add uid/gid=ignore and forget optionsPhillip Susi
Fix a bug in udf where it would write uid/gid = 0 to the disk for files owned by the id given with the uid=/gid= mount options. It also adds 4 new mount options: uid/gid=forget and uid/gid=ignore. Without any options the id in core and on disk always match. Giving uid/gid=nnn specifies a default ID to be used in core when the on disk ID is -1. uid/gid=ignore forces the in core ID to allways be used no matter what the on disk ID is. uid/gid=forget forces the on disk ID to always be written out as -1. The use of these options allows you to override ownerships on a disk or disable ownwership information from being written, allowing the media to be used portably between different computers and possibly different users without permissions issues that would require root to correct.

2006-03-06[PATCH] smaps: shared fixNick Piggin
The point of the smaps "shared" is to count the number of pages that are mapped by more than one process, according to Mauricio Lin. However, smaps uses page_count for this, so it will return a false positive for every page that is mapped by just that one process, which is also in pagecache or swapcache. There are false positive situations for anonymous pages not in swapcache as well: - page reclaim, migration - get_user_pages (eg. direct-io, ptrace) Use page_mapcount instead, to count the number of mappings to the page. Use vm_normal_page so that weird things like /dev/mem aren't counted either. Signed-off-by: Nick Piggin <> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>

2006-03-06[PATCH] ramfs needs to update directory m/ctime on symlinkPeter Staubach
ramfs neglects to update the directory mtime and ctime fields when creating a new symbolic link. Ramfs was modified in 2.6.15 to update these fields when other types of entries are created. The symlink support is separate from that other support, so that change did not cover quite all of the possibilities. All of the directory content manipulation entry points now seem to be covered with respect to these time field updates.

2006-03-05[CIFS] Always match oplock break (cache notification) to the right tcpSteve French
session when multiply mounted. Fixes slow response when cifs client is mounted to shares on multiple servers and oplock break occurs (usually due to attempt to multiply open a file). When treeids on mutiple mounted shares match and we find the wrong match first, we searched for the wrong cached files to send oplock break response for which usually meant that no matching file was found and thus the server would have to timeout the notification. Oplock break timeout is about 20 seconds on some servers so this could cause significantly slower performance on file open calls in a few cases (in particular when multiple shares are mounted from multiple servers, tree ids match, and we have a cached file which is later opened multiple times). This was the most important of the bugs that was found and fixed at Connectathon (interoperability testing event) this week. Acked-by: Shaggy ( Signed-off-by: Steve French (

2006-03-02[PATCH] v9fs: simplify fid mappingEric Van Hensbergen
v9fs has been plagued by an over-complicated approach trying to map Linux dentry semantics to Plan 9 fid semantics. Our previous approach called for aggressive flushing of the dcache resulting in several problems (including wierd cwd behavior when running /bin/pwd). This patch dramatically simplifies our handling of this fid management. Fids will not be clunked as promptly, but the new approach is more functionally correct. We now clunk un-open fids only when their dentry ref_count reaches 0 (and d_delete is called). Another simplification is we no longer seek to match fids to the process-id or uid of the action initiator. The uid-matching will need to be revisited when we fix the security model.

2006-02-24[PATCH] flags parameter for linkatUlrich Drepper
I'm currently at the POSIX meeting and one thing covered was the incompatibility of Linux's link() with the POSIX definition. The name. Linux does not follow symlinks, POSIX requires it does. Even if somebody thinks this is a good default behavior we cannot change this because it would break the ABI. But the fact remains that some application might want this behavior. We have one chance to help implementing this without breaking the behavior. For this we could use the new linkat interface which would need a new flags parameter. If the new parameter is AT_SYMLINK_FOLLOW the new behavior could be invoked. I do not want to introduce such a patch now. But we could add the parameter now, just don't use it. The patch below would do this. Can we get this late patch applied before the release more or less fixes the syscall API?

This change reverts the 033b96fd30db52a710d97b06f87d16fc59fee0f1 commit from Kay Sievers that removed the mount/umount uevents from the kernel. Some older versions of HAL still depend on these events to detect when a new device has been mounted. These events are not correctly emitted, and are broken by design, and so, should not be relied upon by any future program. Instead, the /proc/mounts file should be polled to properly detect this kind of event. A feature-removal-schedule.txt entry has been added, noting when this interface will be removed from the kernel.
