* block: ioctl: fix information leak to userlandVasiliy Kulikov2010-11-101-0/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | Structure hd_geometry is copied to userland with 4 padding bytes between cylinders and start fields uninitialized on 64-bit platforms. It leads to leaking of contents of kernel stack memory. Currently there is no memset() in real implementations of getgeo() in drivers/block/, so it makes sense to have memset() in blkdev_ioctl().

* block: read i_size with i_size_read()Mike Snitzer2010-11-103-7/+7
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | Convert direct reads of an inode's i_size to using i_size_read(). i_size_{read,write} use a seqcount to protect reads from accessing incomple writes. Concurrent i_size_write()s require mutual exclussion to protect the seqcount that is used by i_size_{read,write}. But i_size_read() callers do not need to use additional locking.

This patch turns CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPRECATED into a run time option that can be switched on/off the kernel command line. This way the same binary can be used in both cases with just a option on the command line. The old CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPRECATED_V2 option is still there to set the default. I kept the weird name to not break existing config files. Also the compat code can be still completely disabled by undefining CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPRECATED_SWITCH -- just the optimizer takes care of this now instead of lots of ifdefs. This makes the code look nicer. v2: This is an updated version on top of Kay's patch to only handle the block devices. I tested it on my old systems and that seems to work.

Please note that most drivers either kick the queue unconditionally or test queue emptiness after completing the current request and don't have this problem.

REQ_FLUSH means the device cache should be flushed before executing the request. REQ_FUA means that the data in the request should be on non-volatile media on completion. Block layer will choose the correct way of implementing the semantics and execute it. The request may be passed to the device directly if the device can handle it; otherwise, it will be sequenced using one or more proxy requests. Devices will never see REQ_FLUSH and/or FUA which it doesn't support. Also, unlike the original REQ_HARDBARRIER, REQ_FLUSH/FUA requests are never failed with -EOPNOTSUPP. If the underlying device doesn't support FLUSH/FUA, the block layer simply make those noop. IOW, it no longer distinguishes between writeback cache which doesn't support cache flush and writethrough/no cache. Devices which have WB cache w/o flush are very difficult to come by these days and there's nothing much we can do anyway, so it doesn't make sense to require everyone to implement -EOPNOTSUPP handling. This will simplify filesystems and block drivers as they can drop -EOPNOTSUPP retry logic for barriers. * QUEUE_ORDERED_* are removed and QUEUE_FSEQ_* are moved into blk-flush.c. * REQ_FLUSH w/o data can also be directly passed to drivers without sequencing but some drivers assume that zero length requests don't have rq->bio which isn't true for these requests requiring the use of proxy requests. * REQ_COMMON_MASK now includes REQ_FLUSH | REQ_FUA so that they are copied from bio to request. * WRITE_BARRIER is marked deprecated and WRITE_FLUSH, WRITE_FUA and WRITE_FLUSH_FUA are added.

This patch drops barrier ordering by queue draining from block layer. Ordering by draining implementation was somewhat invasive to request handling. List of notable changes follow. * Each queue has 1 bit color which is flipped on each barrier issue. This is used to track whether a given request is issued before the current barrier or not. REQ_ORDERED_COLOR flag and coloring implementation in __elv_add_request() are removed. * Requests which shouldn't be processed yet for draining were stalled by returning -EAGAIN from blk_do_ordered() according to the test result between blk_ordered_req_seq() and blk_blk_ordered_cur_seq(). This logic is removed. * Draining completion logic in elv_completed_request() removed. * All barrier sequence requests were queued to request queue and then trckled to lower layer according to progress and thus maintaining request orders during requeue was necessary. This is replaced by queueing the next request in the barrier sequence only after the current one is complete from blk_ordered_complete_seq(), which removes the need for multiple proxy requests in struct request_queue and the request sorting logic in the ELEVATOR_INSERT_REQUEUE path of elv_insert(). * As barriers no longer have ordering constraints, there's no need to dump the whole elevator onto the dispatch queue on each barrier. Insert barriers at the front instead. * If other barrier requests come to the front of the dispatch queue while one is already in progress, they are stored in q->pending_barriers and restored to dispatch queue one-by-one after each barrier completion from blk_ordered_complete_seq().

The third case will be dropped with further changes. * In the initialization of proxy barrier request, data direction is already set by init_request_from_bio(). Drop unnecessary explicit REQ_WRITE setting and move init_request_from_bio() above REQ_FUA flag setting. * add_request() is collapsed into __make_request().

When a bio is merged into a request belongs to different partition by ELEVATOR_FRONT_MERGE. The detailed root cause is as follows. Assuming that there are two partition, sda1 and sda2. 1. A request for sda2 is in request_queue. Hence sda1's hd_struct->in_flight is 0 and sda2's one is 1. | hd_struct->in_flight --------------------------- sda1 | 0 sda2 | 1 --------------------------- 2. A bio belongs to sda1 is issued and is merged into the request mentioned on step1 by ELEVATOR_BACK_MERGE. The first sector of the request is changed from sda2 region to sda1 region. However the two partition's hd_struct->in_flight are not changed. | hd_struct->in_flight --------------------------- sda1 | 0 sda2 | 1 --------------------------- 3. The request is finished and blk_account_io_done() is called. In this case, sda2's hd_struct->in_flight, not a sda1's one, is decremented. | hd_struct->in_flight --------------------------- sda1 | -1 sda2 | 1 --------------------------- The patch fixes the problem by caching the partition lookup inside the request structure, hence making sure that the increment and decrement will always happen on the same partition struct. This also speeds up IO with accounting enabled, since it cuts down on the number of lookups we have to do. When reloading partition tables, quiesce IO to ensure that no request references to the partition struct exists. When it is safe to free the partition table, the IO for that device is restarted again.

Say 1 bytes per second on reads. In such cases simple operations like mount a disk can wait for a very long time. o Once bio is throttled, there is no easy way to come out of that wait even if user increases the read limit later. o This patch fixes it. Now if a user changes the cgroup limits, we recalculate the bio dispatch time according to new limits. o Can't take queueu lock under blkcg_lock, hence after the change I wake up the dispatch thread again which recalculates the time. So there are some variables being synchronized across two threads without lock and I had to make use of barriers. Hoping I have used barriers correctly.

Moreover, when competing with a sequential reader, a process writing small files and fsync-ing them is starved. This patch fixes the two problems by: - marking journal commits as WRITE_SYNC, so that they get the REQ_NOIDLE flag set, - force all queues that have REQ_NOIDLE requests to be put in the noidle tree. Having the queue associated to the fsync-ing process and the one associated to journal commits in the noidle tree allows: - switching between them without idling, - fairness vs. competing idling queues, since they will be serviced only after the noidle tree expires its slice.
