      treewide: kzalloc() -> kcalloc() · 6396bb22
      Kees Cook authored
      The kzalloc() function has a 2-factor argument form, kcalloc(). This
      patch replaces cases of:
      
              kzalloc(a * b, gfp)
      
      with:
              kcalloc(a * b, gfp)
      
      as well as handling cases of:
      
              kzalloc(a * b * c, gfp)
      
      with:
      
              kzalloc(array3_size(a, b, c), gfp)
      
      as it's slightly less ugly than:
      
              kzalloc_array(array_size(a, b), c, gfp)
      
      This does, however, attempt to ignore constant size factors like:
      
              kzalloc(4 * 1024, gfp)
      
      though any constants defined via macros get caught up in the conversion.
      
      Any factors with a sizeof() of "unsigned char", "char", and "u8" were
      dropped, since they're redundant.
      
      The Coccinelle script used for this was:

      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.

      md: fix deadlock between mddev_suspend() and md_write_start() · cc27b0c7
      NeilBrown authored
      If mddev_suspend() races with md_write_start() we can deadlock
      with mddev_suspend() waiting for the request that is currently
      in md_write_start() to complete the ->make_request() call,
      and md_write_start() waiting for the metadata to be updated
      to mark the array as 'dirty'.
      As metadata updates done by md_check_recovery() only happen then
      the mddev_lock() can be claimed, and as mddev_suspend() is often
      called with the lock held, these threads wait indefinitely for each
      other.
      
      We fix this by having md_write_start() abort if mddev_suspend()
      is happening, and ->make_request() aborts if md_write_start()
      aborted.
      md_make_request() can detect this abort, decrease the ->active_io
      count, and wait for mddev_suspend().

      md: separate flags for superblock changes · 2953079c
      Shaohua Li authored
      The mddev->flags are used for different purposes. There are a lot of
      places we check/change the flags without masking unrelated flags, we
      could check/change unrelated flags. These usage are most for superblock
      write, so spearate superblock related flags. This should make the code
      clearer and also fix real bugs.

      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.

      md: multipath: don't hardcopy bio in .make_request path · fafcde3a
      Ming Lei authored
      Inside multipath_make_request(), multipath maps the incoming
      bio into low level device's bio, but it is totally wrong to
      copy the bio into mapped bio via '*mapped_bio = *bio'. For
      example, .__bi_remaining is kept in the copy, especially if
      the incoming bio is chained to via bio splitting, so .bi_end_io
      can't be called for the mapped bio at all in the completing path
      in this kind of situation.
      
      This patch fixes the issue by using clone style.

      md/raid: only permit hot-add of compatible integrity profiles · 1501efad
      Dan Williams authored
      It is not safe for an integrity profile to be changed while i/o is
      in-flight in the queue.  Prevent adding new disks or otherwise online
      spares to an array if the device has an incompatible integrity profile.
      
      The original change to the blk_integrity_unregister implementation in
      md, commmit c7bfced9 "md: suspend i/o during runtime
      blk_integrity_unregister" introduced an immediate hang regression.
      
      This policy of disallowing changes the integrity profile once one has
      been established is shared with DM.
      
      Here is an abbreviated log from a test run that:
      1/ Creates a degraded raid1 with an integrity-enabled device (pmem0s) [   59.076127]

      3/ Retries with an integrity-enabled device (pmem1s) [  205.671277]

      block: kill merge_bvec_fn() completely · 8ae12666
      Kent Overstreet authored
      As generic_make_request() is now able to handle arbitrarily sized bios,
      it's no longer necessary for each individual block driver to define its
      own ->merge_bvec_fn() callback. Remove every invocation completely.

      block: add a bi_error field to struct bio · 4246a0b6
      Christoph Hellwig authored
      Currently we have two different ways to signal an I/O error on a BIO:
      
       (1) by clearing the BIO_UPTODATE flag
       (2) by returning a Linux errno value to the bi_end_io callback
      
      The first one has the drawback of only communicating a single possible
      error (-EIO), and the second one has the drawback of not beeing persistent
      when bios are queued up, and are not passed along from child to parent
      bio in the ever more popular chaining scenario.  Having both mechanisms
      available has the additional drawback of utterly confusing driver authors
      and introducing bugs where various I/O submitters only deal with one of
      them, and the others have to add boilerplate code to deal with both kinds
      of error returns.
      
      So add a new bi_error field to store an errno value directly in struct
      bio and remove the existing mechanisms to clean all this up.

      md: rename ->stop to ->free · afa0f557
      NeilBrown authored
      Now that the ->stop function only frees the private data,
      rename is accordingly.
      
      Also pass in the private pointer as an arg rather than using
      mddev->private.  This flexibility will be useful in level_store().
      
      Finally, don't clear ->private.  It doesn't make sense to clear
      it seeing that isn't what we free, and it is no longer necessary
      to clear ->private (it was some time ago before  ->to_remove was
      introduced).
      
      Setting ->to_remove in ->free() is a bit of a wart, but not a
      big problem at the moment.

      md: split detach operation out from ->stop. · 5aa61f42
      NeilBrown authored
      Each md personality has a 'stop' operation which does two
      things:
       1/ it finalizes some aspects of the array to ensure nothing
          is accessing the ->private data
       2/ it frees the ->private data.
      
      All the steps in '1' can apply to all arrays and so can be
      performed in common code.
      
      This is useful as in the case where we change the personality which
      manages an array (in level_store()), it would be helpful to do
      step 1 early, and step 2 later.
      
      So split the 'step 1' functionality out into a new mddev_detach().

      md: make ->congested robust against personality changes. · 5c675f83
      NeilBrown authored
      There is currently no locking around calls to the 'congested'
      bdi function.  If called at an awkward time while an array is
      being converted from one level (or personality) to another, there
      is a tiny chance of running code in an unreferenced module etc.
      
      So add a 'congested' function to the md_personality operations
      structure, and call it with appropriate locking from a central
      'mddev_congested'.
      
      When the array personality is changing the array will be 'suspended'
      so no IO is processed.
      If mddev_congested detects this, it simply reports that the
      array is congested, which is a safe guess.
      As mddev_suspend calls synchronize_rcu(), mddev_congested can
      avoid races by included the whole call inside an rcu_read_lock()
      region.
      This require that the congested functions for all subordinate devices
      can be run under rcu_lock.  Fortunately this is the case.

      block: Abstract out bvec iterator · 4f024f37
      Kent Overstreet authored
      Immutable biovecs are going to require an explicit iterator. To
      implement immutable bvecs, a later patch is going to add a bi_bvec_done
      member to this struct; for now, this patch effectively just renames
      things.

      md: tidy up rdev_for_each usage. · dafb20fa
      NeilBrown authored
      md.h has an 'rdev_for_each()' macro for iterating the rdevs in an
      mddev.  However it uses the 'safe' version of list_for_each_entry,
      and so requires the extra variable, but doesn't include 'safe' in the
      name, which is useful documentation.
      
      Consequently some places use this safe version without needing it, and
      many use an explicity list_for_each entry.
      
      So:
       - rename rdev_for_each to rdev_for_each_safe
       - create a new rdev_for_each which uses the plain
         list_for_each_entry,
       - use the 'safe' version only where needed, and convert all other
         list_for_each_entry calls to use rdev_for_each.

      md: Avoid waking up a thread after it has been freed. · 01f96c0a
      NeilBrown authored
      Two related problems:
      
      1/ some error paths call "md_unregister_thread(mddev->thread)"
         without subsequently clearing ->thread.  A subsequent call
         to mddev_unlock will try to wake the thread, and crash.
      
      2/ Most calls to md_wakeup_thread are protected against the thread
         disappeared either by:
            - holding the ->mutex
            - having an active request, so something else must be keeping
              the array active.
         However mddev_unlock calls md_wakeup_thread after dropping the
         mutex and without any certainty of an active request, so the
         ->thread could theoretically disappear.
         So we need a spinlock to provide some protections.
      
      So change md_unregister_thread to take a pointer to the thread
      pointer, and ensure that it always does the required locking, and
      clears the pointer properly.
