      drm/i915: add 'reclaimable' to i915 self-reclaimable page allocations · cd9f040d
      Linus Torvalds authored
      The hibernate issues that got fixed in commit 985b823b ("drm/i915:
      fix hibernation since i915 self-reclaim fixes") turn out to have been
      incomplete.  Vefa Bicakci tested lots of hibernate cycles, and without
      the __GFP_RECLAIMABLE flag the system eventually fails to resume.
      With the flag added, Vefa can apparently hibernate forever (or until he
      gets bored running his automated scripts, whichever comes first).
      The reclaimable flag was there originally, and was one of the flags that
      were dropped (unintentionally) by commit 4bdadb97 ("drm/i915:
      Selectively enable self-reclaim") that introduced all these problems,
      but I didn't want to just blindly add back all the flags in commit
      , and it looked like __GFP_RECLAIM wasn't necessary.  It
      clearly was.
      I still suspect that there is some subtle reason we're missing that
      causes the problems, but __GFP_RECLAIMABLE is certainly not wrong to use
      in this context, and is what the code historically used.  And we have no
      idea what the causes the corruption without it.

      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.

      GFS2: Fix kernel NULL pointer dereference by dlm_astd · b1becbde
      Bob Peterson authored
      This patch fixes a problem in an error path when looking
      up dinodes.  There are two sister-functions, gfs2_inode_lookup
      and gfs2_process_unlinked_inode.  Both functions acquire and
      hold the i_iopen glock for the dinode being looked up. The last
      thing they try to do is hold the i_gl glock for the dinode.
      If that glock fails for some reason, the error path was
      incorrectly calling gfs2_glock_put for the i_iopen glock twice.
      This resulted in the glock being prematurely freed.  The
      "minimum hold time" usually kept the glock in memory, but the
      lock interface to dlm (aka lock_dlm) freed its memory for the
      glock.  In some circumstances, it would cause dlm's dlm_astd daemon
      to try to call the bast function for the freed lock_dlm memory,
      which resulted in a NULL pointer dereference.

      GFS2: recovery stuck on transaction lock · b7dc2df5
      Bob Peterson authored
      This patch fixes bugzilla bug #590878: GFS2: recovery stuck on
      transaction lock.  We set the frozen flag on the glock when we receive
      a completion that cannot be delivered due to blocked locks. At that
      point we check to see whether the first waiting holder has the noexp
      flag set. If the noexp lock is queued later, then we need to unfreeze
      the glock at that point in time, namely, in the glock work function.
      This patch was originally written by Steve Whitehouse, but since
      he's on holiday, I'm submitting it.  It's been well tested with a
      complex recovery test called revolver.

      Fix this by ensuring that the lockdep interrupt state is manipulated in
      the appropriate places.  We essentially treat userspace as an entirely
      separate environment which isn't relevant to lockdep (lockdep doesn't
      monitor userspace.)  We don't tell lockdep that IRQs will be enabled
      in that environment.
      Instead, when creating kernel threads (which is a rare event compared
      to entering/leaving userspace) we have to update the lockdep state.  Do
      this by starting threads with IRQs disabled, and in the kthread helper,
      tell lockdep that IRQs are enabled, and enable them.
      This provides lockdep with a consistent view of the current IRQ state
      in kernel space.
      This also revert portions of 0d928b0b
      which didn't fix the problem.
