* fs: do not assign default i_ino in new_inodeChristoph Hellwig2010-10-251-0/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Instead of always assigning an increasing inode number in new_inode move the call to assign it into those callers that actually need it. For now callers that need it is estimated conservatively, that is the call is added to all filesystems that do not assign an i_ino by themselves. For a few more filesystems we can avoid assigning any inode number given that they aren't user visible, and for others it could be done lazily when an inode number is actually needed, but that's left for later patches.

* anon_inode: set S_IFREG on the anon_inodeEric Paris2010-05-211-1/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | anon_inode_mkinode() sets inode->i_mode = S_IRUSR | S_IWUSR; This means that (inode->i_mode & S_IFMT) == 0. This trips up some SELinux code that needs to determine if a given inode is a regular file, a directory, etc. The easiest solution is to just make sure that the anon_inode also sets S_IFREG.

* include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking ↵Tejun Heo2010-03-301-1/+0
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | implicit slab.h inclusion from percpu.h percpu.h is included by sched.h and module.h and thus ends up being included when building most .c files. percpu.h includes slab.h which in turn includes gfp.h making everything defined by the two files universally available and complicating inclusion dependencies. percpu.h -> slab.h dependency is about to be removed. 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.

* anon_inodes: mark the anon inode privateEric Paris2010-03-121-0/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Inotify was switched to use anon_inode instead of its own private filesystem which only had one inode in commit c44dcc56d2b5c7 "switch inotify_user to anon_inode" The problem with this is that now the inotify inode is not a distinct inode which can be managed by LSMs. userspace tools which use inotify were allowed to use the inotify inode but may not have had permission to do read/write type operations on the anon_inode. After looking at the anon_inode and its users it looks like the best solution is to just mark the anon_inode as S_PRIVATE so the security system will ignore it.

* fs: no games with DCACHE_UNHASHEDNick Piggin2009-12-171-13/+0
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Filesystems outside the regular namespace do not have to clear DCACHE_UNHASHED in order to have a working /proc/$pid/fd/XXX. Nothing in proc prevents the fd link from being used if its dentry is not in the hash. Also, it does not get put into the dcache hash if DCACHE_UNHASHED is clear; that depends on the filesystem calling d_add or d_rehash. So delete the misleading comments and needless code.

* anonfd: split interface into file creation and installDavide Libenzi2009-09-231-17/+51
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Split the anonfd interface into a bare file pointer creation one, and a file pointer creation plus install one. There are cases, like the usage of eventfds inside other kernel interfaces, where the file pointer created by anonfd needs to be used inside the initialization of other structures. As it is right now, as soon as anon_inode_getfd() returns, the kenrle can race with userspace closing the newly installed file descriptor. This patch, while keeping the old anon_inode_getfd(), introduces a new anon_inode_getfile() (whose services are reused in anon_inode_getfd()) that allows to split the file creation phase and the fd install one. Once all the kernel structures are initialized, the code can call the proper fd_install(). Gregory manifested the need for something like this inside KVM.

* anon_inodes: use fops->owner for module refcountChristian Borntraeger2008-12-311-1/+6
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | There is an imbalance for anonymous inodes. If the fops->owner field is set, the module reference count of owner is decreases on release. ("filp_close" --> "__fput" ---> "fops_put") On the other hand, anon_inode_getfd does not increase the module reference count of owner. This causes two problems: - if owner is set, the module refcount goes negative - if owner is not set, the module can be unloaded while code is running This patch changes anon_inode_getfd to be symmetric regarding fops->owner handling. I have checked all existing users of anon_inode_getfd. Noone sets fops->owner, thats why nobody has seen the module refcount negative. The refcounting was tested with a patched and unpatched KVM module.(see patch 2/2) I also did an epoll_open/close test.

We do not care of having an inode for each file, and we do not even care of having different names in the associated dentries (dentry names will be same for classes of file*).
