      License cleanup: add SPDX GPL-2.0 license identifier to files with no license · b2441318
      Greg Kroah-Hartman authored
      Many source files in the tree are missing licensing information, which
      makes it harder for compliance tools to determine the correct license.
      
      By default all files without license information are under the default
      license of the kernel, which is GPL version 2.
      
      Update the files which contain no license information with the 'GPL-2.0'
      SPDX license identifier.  The SPDX identifier is a legally binding
      shorthand, which can be used instead of the full boiler plate text.
      
      This patch is based on work done by Thomas Gleixner and Kate Stewart and
      Philippe Ombredanne.
      
      How this work was done:
      
      Patches were generated and checked against linux-4.14-rc6 for a subset of
      the use cases:
       - file had no licensing information it it.
       - file was a */uapi/* one with no licensing information in it,
       - file was a */uapi/* one with existing licensing information,
      
      Further patches will be generated in subsequent months to fix up cases
      where non-standard license headers were used, and references to license
      had to be inferred by heuristics based on keywords.
      
      The analysis to determine which SPDX License Identifier to be applied to
      a file was done in a spreadsheet of side by side results from of the
      output of two independent scanners (ScanCode & Windriver) producing SPDX
      tag:value files created by Philippe Ombredanne.  Philippe prepared the
      base worksheet, and did an initial spot review of a few 1000 files.
      
      The 4.13 kernel was the starting point of the analysis with 60,537 files
      assessed.  Kate Stewart did a file by file comparison of the scanner
      results in the spreadsheet to determine which SPDX license identifier(s)
      to be applied to the file. She confirmed any determination that was not
      immediately clear with lawyers working with the Linux Foundation.
      
      Criteria used to select files for SPDX license identifier tagging was:
       - Files considered eligible had to be source code files.
       - Make and config files were included as candidates if they contained >5
         lines of source
       - File already had some variant of a license header in it (even if <5
         lines).
      
      All documentation files were explicitly excluded.
      
      The following heuristics were used to determine which SPDX license
      identifiers to apply.
      
       - when both scanners couldn't find any license traces, file was
         considered to have no license information in it, and the top level
         COPYING file license applied.
      
         For non */uapi/* files that summary was:
      
         SPDX license identifier                            # files
         ---------------------------------------------------|-------
         GPL-2.0                                              11139
      
         and resulted in the first patch in this series.
      
         If that file was a */uapi/* path one, it was "GPL-2.0 WITH
         Linux-syscall-note" otherwise it was "GPL-2.0".  Results of that was:
      
         SPDX license identifier                            # files
         ---------------------------------------------------|-------
         GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note                        930
      
         and resulted in the second patch in this series.
      
       - if a file had some form of licensing information in it, and was one
         of the */uapi/* ones, it was denoted with the Linux-syscall-note if
         any GPL family license was found in the file or had no licensing in
         it (per prior point).  Results summary:
      
         SPDX license identifier                            # files
         ---------------------------------------------------|------
         GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note                       270
         GPL-2.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note                      169
         ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR BSD-2-Clause)    21
         ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR BSD-3-Clause)    17
         LGPL-2.1+ WITH Linux-syscall-note                      15
         GPL-1.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note                       14
         ((GPL-2.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR BSD-3-Clause)    5
         LGPL-2.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note                       4
         LGPL-2.1 WITH Linux-syscall-note                        3
         ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR MIT)              3
         ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) AND MIT)             1
      
         and that resulted in the third patch in this series.
      
       - when the two scanners agreed on the detected license(s), that became
         the concluded license(s).
      
       - when there was disagreement between the two scanners (one detected a
         license but the other didn't, or they both detected different
         licenses) a manual inspection of the file occurred.
      
       - In most cases a manual inspection of the information in the file
         resulted in a clear resolution of the license that should apply (and
         which scanner probably needed to revisit its heuristics).
      
       - When it was not immediately clear, the license identifier was
         confirmed with lawyers working with the Linux Foundation.
      
       - If there was any question as to the appropriate license identifier,
         the file was flagged for further research and to be revisited later
         in time.
      
      In total, over 70 hours of logged manual review was done on the
      spreadsheet to determine the SPDX license identifiers to apply to the
      source files by Kate, Philippe, Thomas and, in some cases, confirmation
      by lawyers working with the Linux Foundation.
      
      Kate also obtained a third independent scan of the 4.13 code base from
      FOSSology, and compared selected files where the other two scanners
      disagreed against that SPDX file, to see if there was new insights.  The
      Windriver scanner is based on an older version of FOSSology in part, so
      they are related.
      
      Thomas did random spot checks in about 500 files from the spreadsheets
      for the uapi headers and agreed with SPDX license identifier in the
      files he inspected. For the non-uapi files Thomas did random spot checks
      in about 15000 files.
      
      In initial set of patches against 4.14-rc6, 3 files were found to have
      copy/paste license identifier errors, and have been fixed to reflect the
      correct identifier.
      
      Additionally Philippe spent 10 hours this week doing a detailed manual
      inspection and review of the 12,461 patched files from the initial patch
      version early this week with:
       - a full scancode scan run, collecting the matched texts, detected
         license ids and scores
       - reviewing anything where there was a license detected (about 500+
         files) to ensure that the applied SPDX license was correct
       - reviewing anything where there was no detection but the patch license
         was not GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note to ensure that the applied
         SPDX license was correct
      
      This produced a worksheet with 20 files needing minor correction.  This
      worksheet was then exported into 3 different .csv files for the
      different types of files to be modified.
      
      These .csv files were then reviewed by Greg.  Thomas wrote a script to
      parse the csv files and add the proper SPDX tag to the file, in the
      format that the file expected.  This script was further refined by Greg
      based on the output to detect more types of files automatically and to
      distinguish between header and source .c files (which need different
      comment types.)  Finally Greg ran the script using the .csv files to
      generate the patches.

      block: replace bi_bdev with a gendisk pointer and partitions index · 74d46992
      Christoph Hellwig authored
      This way we don't need a block_device structure to submit I/O.  The
      block_device has different life time rules from the gendisk and
      request_queue and is usually only available when the block device node
      is open.  Other callers need to explicitly create one (e.g. the lightnvm
      passthrough code, or the new nvme multipathing code).
      
      For the actual I/O path all that we need is the gendisk, which exists
      once per block device.  But given that the block layer also does
      partition remapping we additionally need a partition index, which is
      used for said remapping in generic_make_request.
      
      Note that all the block drivers generally want request_queue or
      sometimes the gendisk, so this removes a layer of indirection all
      over the stack.

      ocfs2: don't clear SGID when inheriting ACLs · 19ec8e48
      Jan Kara authored
      When new directory 'DIR1' is created in a directory 'DIR0' with SGID bit
      set, DIR1 is expected to have SGID bit set (and owning group equal to
      the owning group of 'DIR0').  However when 'DIR0' also has some default
      ACLs that 'DIR1' inherits, setting these ACLs will result in SGID bit on
      'DIR1' to get cleared if user is not member of the owning group.
      
      Fix the problem by moving posix_acl_update_mode() out of ocfs2_set_acl()
      into ocfs2_iop_set_acl().  That way the function will not be called when
      inheriting ACLs which is what we want as it prevents SGID bit clearing
      and the mode has been properly set by posix_acl_create() anyway.  Also
      posix_acl_chmod() that is calling ocfs2_set_acl() takes care of updating
      mode itself.

      fs: convert a pile of fsync routines to errseq_t based reporting · 3b49c9a1
      Jeff Layton authored
      This patch converts most of the in-kernel filesystems that do writeback
      out of the pagecache to report errors using the errseq_t-based
      infrastructure that was recently added. This allows them to report
      errors once for each open file description.
      
      Most filesystems have a fairly straightforward fsync operation. They
      call filemap_write_and_wait_range to write back all of the data and
      wait on it, and then (sometimes) sync out the metadata.
      
      For those filesystems this is a straightforward conversion from calling
      filemap_write_and_wait_range in their fsync operation to calling
      file_write_and_wait_range.

      ocfs2: fix deadlock caused by recursive locking in xattr · 8818efaa
      Eric Ren authored
      Another deadlock path caused by recursive locking is reported.  This
      kind of issue was introduced since commit 743b5f14 ("ocfs2: take
      inode lock in ocfs2_iop_set/get_acl()").  Two deadlock paths have been
      fixed by commit b891fa50 ("ocfs2: fix deadlock issue when taking
      inode lock at vfs entry points").  Yes, we intend to fix this kind of
      case in incremental way, because it's hard to find out all possible
      paths at once.
      
      This one can be reproduced like this.  On node1, cp a large file from
      home directory to ocfs2 mountpoint.  While on node2, run
      setfacl/getfacl.  Both nodes will hang up there.  The backtraces:
      
      On node1:

      ocfs2: Use ERR_CAST() to avoid cross-structure cast · 7585d12f
      Kees Cook authored
      When trying to propagate an error result, the error return path attempts
      to retain the error, but does this with an open cast across very different
      types, which the upcoming structure layout randomization plugin flags as
      being potentially dangerous in the face of randomization. This is a false
      positive, but what this code actually wants to do is use ERR_CAST() to
      retain the error value.

      net: Work around lockdep limitation in sockets that use sockets · cdfbabfb
      David Howells authored
      Lockdep issues a circular dependency warning when AFS issues an operation
      through AF_RXRPC from a context in which the VFS/VM holds the mmap_sem.
      
      The theory lockdep comes up with is as follows:
      
       (1) If the pagefault handler decides it needs to read pages from AFS, it
           calls AFS with mmap_sem held and AFS begins an AF_RXRPC call, but
           creating a call requires the socket lock:
      
      	mmap_sem must be taken before sk_lock-AF_RXRPC
      
       (2) afs_open_socket() opens an AF_RXRPC socket and binds it.  rxrpc_bind()
           binds the underlying UDP socket whilst holding its socket lock.
           inet_bind() takes its own socket lock:
      
      	sk_lock-AF_RXRPC must be taken before sk_lock-AF_INET
      
       (3) Reading from a TCP socket into a userspace buffer might cause a fault
           and thus cause the kernel to take the mmap_sem, but the TCP socket is
           locked whilst doing this:
      
      	sk_lock-AF_INET must be taken before mmap_sem
      
      However, lockdep's theory is wrong in this instance because it deals only
      with lock classes and not individual locks.  The AF_INET lock in (2) isn't
      really equivalent to the AF_INET lock in (3) as the former deals with a
      socket entirely internal to the kernel that never sees userspace.  This is
      a limitation in the design of lockdep.
      
      Fix the general case by:
      
       (1) Double up all the locking keys used in sockets so that one set are
           used if the socket is created by userspace and the other set is used
           if the socket is created by the kernel.
      
       (2) Store the kern parameter passed to sk_alloc() in a variable in the
           sock struct (sk_kern_sock).  This informs sock_lock_init(),
           sock_init_data() and sk_clone_lock() as to the lock keys to be used.
      
           Note that the child created by sk_clone_lock() inherits the parent's
           kern setting.
      
       (3) Add a 'kern' parameter to ->accept() that is analogous to the one
           passed in to ->create() that distinguishes whether kernel_accept() or
           sys_accept4() was the caller and can be passed to sk_alloc().
      
           Note that a lot of accept functions merely dequeue an already
           allocated socket.  I haven't touched these as the new socket already
           exists before we get the parameter.
      
           Note also that there are a couple of places where I've made the accepted
           socket unconditionally kernel-based:
      
      	irda_accept()
      	rds_rcp_accept_one()
      	tcp_accept_from_sock()
      
           because they follow a sock_create_kern() and accept off of that.
      
      Whilst creating this, I noticed that lustre and ocfs don't create sockets
      through sock_create_kern() and thus they aren't marked as for-kernel,
      though they appear to be internal.  I wonder if these should do that so
      that they use the new set of lock keys.

      statx: Add a system call to make enhanced file info available · a528d35e
      David Howells authored
      Add a system call to make extended file information available, including
      file creation and some attribute flags where available through the
      underlying filesystem.
      
      The getattr inode operation is altered to take two additional arguments: a
      u32 request_mask and an unsigned int flags that indicate the
      synchronisation mode.  This change is propagated to the vfs_getattr*()
      function.
      
      Functions like vfs_stat() are now inline wrappers around new functions
      vfs_statx() and vfs_statx_fd() to reduce stack usage.

      OVERVIEW
      ========
      
      The idea was initially proposed as a set of xattrs that could be retrieved
      with getxattr(), but the general preference proved to be for a new syscall
      with an extended stat structure.
      
      A number of requests were gathered for features to be included.  The
      following have been included:
      
       (1) Make the fields a consistent size on all arches and make them large.
      
       (2) Spare space, request flags and information flags are provi...
