* block: fix use-after-free bug in blk throttle codeJens Axboe2010-10-231-0/+2
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | blk_throtl_exit() frees the throttle data hanging off the queue in blk_cleanup_queue(), but blk_put_queue() will indirectly dereference this data when calling blk_sync_queue() which in turns calls throtl_shutdown_timer_wq(). Fix this by moving the freeing of the throttle data to when the queue is truly being released, and post the call to blk_sync_queue().

| * block/scsi: Provide a limit on the number of integrity segmentsMartin K. Petersen2010-09-101-0/+11
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Some controllers have a hardware limit on the number of protection information scatter-gather list segments they can handle. Introduce a max_integrity_segments limit in the block layer and provide a new scsi_host_template setting that allows HBA drivers to provide a value suitable for the hardware. Add support for honoring the integrity segment limit when merging both bios and requests. Signed-off-by: Martin K.

* block: add sysfs knob for turning off disk entropy contributionsJens Axboe2010-08-071-0/+28
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | There are two reasons for doing this: - On SSD disks, the completion times aren't as random as they are for rotational drives. So it's questionable whether they should contribute to the random pool in the first place. - Calling add_disk_randomness() has a lot of overhead. This adds /sys/block/<dev>/queue/add_random that will allow you to switch off on a per-device basis. The default setting is on, so there should be no functional changes from this patch.

* | | include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking ↵Tejun Heo2010-03-301-0/+1

Prepare for this change by updating users of gfp and slab facilities include those headers directly instead of assuming availability. As this conversion needs to touch large number of source files, the following script is used as the basis of conversion. http://userweb.kernel.org/~tj/misc/slabh-sweep.py The script does the followings. * Scan files for gfp and slab usages and update includes such that only the necessary includes are there. ie. if only gfp is used, gfp.h, if slab is used, slab.h. * When the script inserts a new include, it looks at the include blocks and try to put the new include such that its order conforms to its surrounding. It's put in the include block which contains core kernel includes, in the same order that the rest are ordered - alphabetical, Christmas tree, rev-Xmas-tree or at the end if there doesn't seem to be any matching order. * If the script can't find a place to put a new include (mostly because the file doesn't have fitting include block), it prints out an error message indicating which .h file needs to be added to the file. The conversion was done in the following steps. 1. The initial automatic conversion of all .c files updated slightly over 4000 files, deleting around 700 includes and adding ~480 gfp.h and ~3000 slab.h inclusions. The script emitted errors for ~400 files. 2. Each error was manually checked. Some didn't need the inclusion, some needed manual addition while adding it to implementation .h or embedding .c file was more appropriate for others. This step added inclusions to around 150 files. 3. The script was run again and the output was compared to the edits from #2 to make sure no file was left behind. 4. Several build tests were done and a couple of problems were fixed. e.g. lib/decompress_*.c used malloc/free() wrappers around slab APIs requiring slab.h to be added manually. 5. The script was run on all .h files but without automatically editing them as sprinkling gfp.h and slab.h inclusions around .h files could easily lead to inclusion dependency hell. Most gfp.h inclusion directives were ignored as stuff from gfp.h was usually wildly available and often used in preprocessor macros. Each slab.h inclusion directive was examined and added manually as necessary. 6. percpu.h was updated not to include slab.h. 7. Build test were done on the following configurations and failures were fixed. CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL was turned off for all tests (as my distributed build env didn't work with gcov compiles) and a few more options had to be turned off depending on archs to make things build (like ipr on powerpc/64 which failed due to missing writeq). * x86 and x86_64 UP and SMP allmodconfig and a custom test config. * powerpc and powerpc64 SMP allmodconfig * sparc and sparc64 SMP allmodconfig * ia64 SMP allmodconfig * s390 SMP allmodconfig * alpha SMP allmodconfig * um on x86_64 SMP allmodconfig 8. percpu.h modifications were reverted so that it could be applied as a separate patch and serve as bisection point. Given the fact that I had only a couple of failures from tests on step 6, I'm fairly confident about the coverage of this conversion patch. If there is a breakage, it's likely to be something in one of the arch headers which should be easily discoverable easily on most builds of the specific arch.

* block: Allow devices to indicate whether discarded blocks are zeroedMartin K. Petersen2009-12-031-0/+11
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | The discard ioctl is used by mkfs utilities to clear a block device prior to putting metadata down. However, not all devices return zeroed blocks after a discard. Some drives return stale data, potentially containing old superblocks. It is therefore important to know whether discarded blocks are properly zeroed. Both ATA and SCSI drives have configuration bits that indicate whether zeroes are returned after a discard operation. Implement a block level interface that allows this information to be bubbled up the stack and queried via a new block device ioctl. Signed-off-by: Martin K.

* block: Allow changing max_sectors_kb above the default 512Nikanth Karthikesan2009-09-011-1/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | The patch "block: Use accessor functions for queue limits" (ae03bf639a5027d27270123f5f6e3ee6a412781d) changed queue_max_sectors_store() to use blk_queue_max_sectors() instead of directly assigning the value. But blk_queue_max_sectors() differs a bit 1. It sets both max_sectors_kb, and max_hw_sectors_kb 2. Never allows one to change max_sectors_kb above BLK_DEF_MAX_SECTORS. If one specifies a value greater then max_hw_sectors is set to that value but max_sectors is set to BLK_DEF_MAX_SECTORS I am not sure whether blk_queue_max_sectors() should be changed, as it seems to be that way for a long time. And there may be callers dependent on that behaviour. This patch simply reverts to the older way of directly assigning the value to max_sectors as it was before.

| * block: Export I/O topology for block devices and partitionsMartin K. Petersen2009-05-221-0/+33
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | To support devices with physical block sizes bigger than 512 bytes we need to ensure proper alignment. This patch adds support for exposing I/O topology characteristics as devices are stacked. logical_block_size is the smallest unit the device can address. physical_block_size indicates the smallest I/O the device can write without incurring a read-modify-write penalty. The io_min parameter is the smallest preferred I/O size reported by the device. In many cases this is the same as the physical block size. However, the io_min parameter can be scaled up when stacking (RAID5 chunk size > physical block size). The io_opt characteristic indicates the optimal I/O size reported by the device. This is usually the stripe width for arrays. The alignment_offset parameter indicates the number of bytes the start of the device/partition is offset from the device's natural alignment. Partition tools and MD/DM utilities can use this to pad their offsets so filesystems start on proper boundaries. Signed-off-by: Martin K.

* block: add support for IO CPU affinityJens Axboe2008-10-091-0/+31
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This patch adds support for controlling the IO completion CPU of either all requests on a queue, or on a per-request basis. We export a sysfs variable (rq_affinity) which, if set, migrates completions of requests to the CPU that originally submitted it. A bio helper (bio_set_completion_cpu()) is also added, so that queuers can ask for completion on that specific CPU. In testing, this has been show to cut the system time by as much as 20-40% on synthetic workloads where CPU affinity is desired. This requires a little help from the architecture, so it'll only work as designed for archs that are using the new generic smp helper infrastructure. Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jens.axboe@oracle.com>
* block: implement and use {disk|part}_to_dev()Tejun Heo2008-10-091-2/+2
| | | | | | | | | | | | Implement {disk|part}_to_dev() and use them to access generic device instead of directly dereferencing {disk|part}->dev. To make sure no user is left behind, rename generic devices fields to __dev. This is in preparation of unifying partition 0 handling with other partitions.

* block: Skip I/O merges when disabledAlan D. Brunelle2008-04-291-0/+26
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | The block I/O + elevator + I/O scheduler code spend a lot of time trying to merge I/Os -- rightfully so under "normal" circumstances. However, if one were to know that the incoming I/O stream was /very/ random in nature, the cycles are wasted. This patch adds a per-request_queue tunable that (when set) disables merge attempts (beyond the simple one-hit cache check), thus freeing up a non-trivial amount of CPU cycles. Signed-off-by: Alan D.

* block: fix blk_register_queue() return valueAkinobu Mita2008-04-211-2/+8
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | blk_register_queue() returns -ENXIO when queue->request_fn is NULL. But there are some block drivers that call blk_register_queue() via add_disk() with queue->request_fn == NULL. (For example, brd, loop) Although no one checks return value of blk_register_queue(), this patch makes it return 0 instead of -ENXIO when queue->request_fn is NULL, Also this patch adds warning when blk_register_queue() and blk_unregister_queue() are called with queue == NULL rather than ignore invalid usage silently.
