      block: rename bio bi_rw to bi_opf · 1eff9d32
      Jens Axboe authored
      Since commit 63a4cc24, bio->bi_rw contains flags in the lower
      portion and the op code in the higher portions. This means that
      old code that relies on manually setting bi_rw is most likely
      going to be broken. Instead of letting that brokeness linger,
      rename the member, to force old and out-of-tree code to break
      at compile time instead of at runtime.
      No intended functional changes in this commit.

      blk-mq: fix deadlock in blk_mq_register_disk() error path · c0f3fd2b
      Jens Axboe authored
      If we fail registering any of the hardware queues, we call
      into blk_mq_unregister_disk() with the hotplug mutex already
      held. Since blk_mq_unregister_disk() attempts to acquire the
      same mutex, we end up in a less than happy place.

      block: fix bdi vs gendisk lifetime mismatch · df08c32c
      Dan Williams authored
      The name for a bdi of a gendisk is derived from the gendisk's devt.
      However, since the gendisk is destroyed before the bdi it leaves a
      window where a new gendisk could dynamically reuse the same devt while a
      bdi with the same name is still live.  Arrange for the bdi to hold a
      reference against its "owner" disk device while it is registered.
      Otherwise we can hit sysfs duplicate name collisions like the following:

      blk-mq: Allow timeouts to run while queue is freezing · 71f79fb3
      Gabriel Krisman Bertazi authored
      In case a submitted request gets stuck for some reason, the block layer
      can prevent the request starvation by starting the scheduled timeout work.
      If this stuck request occurs at the same time another thread has started
      a queue freeze, the blk_mq_timeout_work will not be able to acquire the
      queue reference and will return silently, thus not issuing the timeout.
      But since the request is already holding a q_usage_counter reference and
      is unable to complete, it will never release its reference, preventing
      the queue from completing the freeze started by first thread.  This puts
      the request_queue in a hung state, forever waiting for the freeze
      This was observed while running IO to a NVMe device at the same time we
      toggled the CPU hotplug code. Eventually, once a request got stuck
      requiring a timeout during a queue freeze, we saw the CPU Hotplug
      notification code get stuck inside blk_mq_freeze_queue_wait, as shown in
      the trace below.

      The fix is to allow the timeout work to execute in the window between
      dropping the initial refcount reference and the release of the last
      reference, which actually marks the freeze completion.  This can be
      achieved with percpu_refcount_tryget, which does not require the counter
      to be alive.  This way the timeout work can do it's job and terminate a
      stuck request even during a freeze, returning its reference and avoiding
      the deadlock.
      Allowing the timeout to run is just a part of the fix, since for some
      devices, we might get stuck again inside the device driver's timeout
      handler, should it attempt to allocate a new request in that path -
      which is a quite common action for Abort commands, which need to be sent
      after a timeout.  In NVMe, for instance, we call blk_mq_alloc_request
      from inside the timeout handler, which will fail during a freeze, since
      it also tries to acquire a queue reference.
      I considered a similar change to blk_mq_alloc_request as a generic
      solution for further device driver hangs, but we can't do that, since it
      would allow new requests to disturb the freeze process.  I thought about
      creating a new function in the block layer to support unfreezable
      requests for these occasions, but after working on it for a while, I
      feel like this should be handled in a per-driver basis.  I'm now
      experimenting with changes to the NVMe timeout path, but I'm open to
      suggestions of ways to make this generic.

             - class_dev_iter_exit(seqf->private) // boom! old pointer
      As the comment in disk_seqf_stop() says, stop is called even if start
      failed, so we need to reinitialise the private pointer to NULL when seq
      iteration stops.
      An alternative would be to set the private pointer to NULL when the
      kmalloc() in disk_seqf_start() fails.

      block: add missing group association in bio-cloning functions · 20bd723e
      Paolo Valente authored
      When a bio is cloned, the newly created bio must be associated with
      the same blkcg as the original bio (if BLK_CGROUP is enabled). If
      this operation is not performed, then the new bio is not associated
      with any group, and the group of the current task is returned when
      the group of the bio is requested.
      Depending on the cloning frequency, this may cause a large
      percentage of the bios belonging to a given group to be treated
      as if belonging to other groups (in most cases as if belonging to
      the root group). The expected group isolation may thereby be broken.
      This commit adds the missing association in bio-cloning functions.

      block: do not merge requests without consulting with io scheduler · 72ef799b
      Tahsin Erdogan authored
      Before merging a bio into an existing request, io scheduler is called to
      get its approval first. However, the requests that come from a plug
      flush may get merged by block layer without consulting with io
      In case of CFQ, this can cause fairness problems. For instance, if a
      request gets merged into a low weight cgroup's request, high weight cgroup
      now will depend on low weight cgroup to get scheduled. If high weigt cgroup
      needs that io request to complete before submitting more requests, then it
      will also lose its timeslice.
      Following script demonstrates the problem. Group g1 has a low weight, g2
      and g3 have equal high weights but g2's requests are adjacent to g1's
      requests so they are subject to merging. Due to these merges, g2 gets
      poor disk time allocation.

      We now have implicit batching in the timer wheel. The slack API is no longer
      used, so remove it.

      block: fix use-after-free in sys_ioprio_get() · 8ba86821
      Omar Sandoval authored
      get_task_ioprio() accesses the task->io_context without holding the task
      lock and thus can race with exit_io_context(), leading to a
      use-after-free. The reproducer below hits this within a few seconds on
      my 4-core QEMU VM:
      #define _GNU_SOURCE
      #include <assert.h>
      #include <unistd.h>
      #include <sys/syscall.h>
      #include <sys/wait.h>
      int main(int argc, char **argv)
      	pid_t pid, child;
      	long nproc, i;
      	syscall(SYS_ioprio_set, 1, 0, 0x6000);
      	nproc = sysconf(_SC_NPROCESSORS_ONLN);
      	for (i = 0; i < nproc; i++) {
      		pid = fork();
      		assert(pid != -1);
      		if (pid == 0) {
      			for (;;) {
      				pid = fork();
      				assert(pid != -1);
      				if (pid == 0) {
      				} else {
      					child = wait(NULL);
      					assert(child == pid);
      		pid = fork();
      		assert(pid != -1);
      		if (pid == 0) {
      			for (;;) {
      				/* ioprio_get(IOPRIO_WHO_PGRP, 0); */
      				syscall(SYS_ioprio_get, 2, 0);
      	for (;;) {
      		/* ioprio_get(IOPRIO_WHO_PGRP, 0); */
      		syscall(SYS_ioprio_get, 2, 0);
      	return 0;
      This gets us KASAN dumps like this:

      Fix it by grabbing the task lock while we poke at the io_context.

      cfq-iosched: Charge at least 1 jiffie instead of 1 ns · 0b31c10c
      Jan Kara authored
      Commit 9a7f38c4 (cfq-iosched: Convert from jiffies to nanoseconds)
      could result in charging just 1 ns to a cgroup submitting IO instead of 1
      jiffie we always charged before. It is arguable what is the right amount
      to change but for now lets retain the old behavior of always charging at
      least one jiffie.

      cfq-iosched: Fix regression in bonnie++ rewrite performance · 149321a6
      Jan Kara authored
      Commit 9a7f38c4 (cfq-iosched: Convert from jiffies to nanoseconds)
      broke the condition for detecting starved sync IO in
      cfq_completed_request() because rq->start_time remained in jiffies but
      we compared it with nanosecond values. This manifested as a regression
      in bonnie++ rewrite performance because we always ended up considering
      sync IO starved and thus never increased async IO queue depth.
      Since rq->start_time is used in a lot of places, converting it to ns
      values would be non-trivial. So just revert the condition in CFQ to use
      comparison with jiffies. This will lead to suboptimal results if
      cfq_fifo_expire[1] will ever come close to 1 jiffie but so far we are
      relatively far from that with the storage used with CFQ (the default
      value is 128 ms).

      cfq-iosched: Convert slice_resid from u64 to s64 · 93fdf147
      Jan Kara authored
      slice_resid can be both positive and negative. Commit 9a7f38c4
      (cfq-iosched: Convert from jiffies to nanoseconds) converted it from
      long to u64. Although this did not introduce any functional regression
      (the operations just overflow and the result was fine), it is certainly
      wrong and could cause issues in future. So convert the type to more
      appropriate s64.

      block: Convert fifo_time from ulong to u64 · 9828c2c6
      Jan Kara authored
      Currently rq->fifo_time is unsigned long but CFQ stores nanosecond
      timestamp in it which would overflow on 32-bit archs. Convert it to u64
      to avoid the overflow. Since the rq->fifo_time is unioned with struct
      call_single_data(), this does not change the size of struct request in
      any way.
      We have to slightly fixup block/deadline-iosched.c so that comparison
      happens in the right types.

      cfq-iosched: temporarily boost queue priority for idle classes · b8269db4
      Jens Axboe authored
      If we're queuing REQ_PRIO IO and the task is running at an idle IO
      class, then temporarily boost the priority. This prevents livelocks
      due to priority inversion, when a low priority task is holding file
      system resources while attempting to do IO.
      An example of that is shown below. An ioniced idle task is holding
      the directory mutex, while a normal priority task is trying to do
      a directory lookup.

      blk-mq: actually hook up defer list when running requests · 52b9c330
      Omar Sandoval authored
      If ->queue_rq() returns BLK_MQ_RQ_QUEUE_OK, we use continue and skip
      over the rest of the loop body. However, dptr is assigned later in the
      loop body, and the BLK_MQ_RQ_QUEUE_OK case is exactly the case that we'd
      want it for.
      NVMe isn't actually using BLK_MQ_F_DEFER_ISSUE yet, nor is any other
      in-tree driver, but if the code's going to be there, it might as well
      Fixes: 74c45052 ("blk-mq: add a 'list' parameter to ->queue_rq()")

      block: add a separate operation type for secure erase · 288dab8a
      Christoph Hellwig authored
      Instead of overloading the discard support with the REQ_SECURE flag.
      Use the opportunity to rename the queue flag as well, and remove the
      dead checks for this flag in the RAID 1 and RAID 10 drivers that don't
      claim support for secure erase.
