* init: DEBUG_BLOCK_EXT_DEVT requires explicit root= paramTejun Heo2008-10-091-0/+4
| | | | | | | | | | | | DEBUG_BLOCK_EXT_DEVT shuffles SCSI and IDE device numbers and root device number set using rdev become meaningless. Root devices should be explicitly specified using textual names. Warn about it if root can't be found and DEBUG_BLOCK_EXT_DEVT is enabled. Also, add warning to the help text.

* block: do_mounts - accept root=<non-existant partition>Kay Sievers2008-05-141-1/+26
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Some devices, like md, may create partitions only at first access, so allow root= to be set to a valid non-existant partition of an existing disk. This applies only to non-initramfs root mounting. This fixes a regression from 2.6.24 which did allow this to happen and broke some users machines :( Acked-by: Neil Brown <neilb@suse.de> Tested-by: Joao Luis Meloni Assirati <assirati@nonada.if.usp.br> Cc: stable <stable@kernel.org> Signed-off-by: Kay Sievers <kay.sievers@vrfy.org> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@suse.de>

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | The security_sb_post_mountroot() hook is long-since obsolete, and is fundamentally broken: it is never invoked if someone uses initramfs. This is particularly damaging, because the existence of this hook has been used as motivation for not using initramfs.

* init: wait for asynchronously scanned block devicesPierre Ossman2007-07-161-2/+22
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Some buses (e.g. USB and MMC) do their scanning of devices in the background, causing a race between them and prepare_namespace(). In order to be able to use these buses without an initrd, we now wait for the device specified in root= to actually show up. If the device never shows up than we will hang in an infinite loop. In order to not mess with setups that reboot on panic, the feature must be turned on via the command line option "rootwait".

* [PATCH] BLOCK: Make it possible to disable the block layer [try #6]David Howells2006-09-301-1/+12
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Make it possible to disable the block layer. Not all embedded devices require it, some can make do with just JFFS2, NFS, ramfs, etc - none of which require the block layer to be present. This patch does the following: (*) Introduces CONFIG_BLOCK to disable the block layer, buffering and blockdev support. (*) Adds dependencies on CONFIG_BLOCK to any configuration item that controls an item that uses the block layer. This includes: (*) Block I/O tracing. (*) Disk partition code. (*) All filesystems that are block based, eg: Ext3, ReiserFS, ISOFS. (*) The SCSI layer. As far as I can tell, even SCSI chardevs use the block layer to do scheduling. Some drivers that use SCSI facilities - such as USB storage - end up disabled indirectly from this. (*) Various block-based device drivers, such as IDE and the old CDROM drivers. (*) MTD blockdev handling and FTL. (*) JFFS - which uses set_bdev_super(), something it could avoid doing by taking a leaf out of JFFS2's book. (*) Makes most of the contents of linux/blkdev.h, linux/buffer_head.h and linux/elevator.h contingent on CONFIG_BLOCK being set. sector_div() is, however, still used in places, and so is still available. (*) Also made contingent are the contents of linux/mpage.h, linux/genhd.h and parts of linux/fs.h. (*) Makes a number of files in fs/ contingent on CONFIG_BLOCK. (*) Makes mm/bounce.c (bounce buffering) contingent on CONFIG_BLOCK. (*) set_page_dirty() doesn't call __set_page_dirty_buffers() if CONFIG_BLOCK is not enabled. (*) fs/no-block.c is created to hold out-of-line stubs and things that are required when CONFIG_BLOCK is not set: (*) Default blockdev file operations (to give error ENODEV on opening). (*) Makes some /proc changes: (*) /proc/devices does not list any blockdevs. (*) /proc/diskstats and /proc/partitions are contingent on CONFIG_BLOCK. (*) Makes some compat ioctl handling contingent on CONFIG_BLOCK. (*) If CONFIG_BLOCK is not defined, makes sys_quotactl() return -ENODEV if given command other than Q_SYNC or if a special device is specified. (*) In init/do_mounts.c, no reference is made to the blockdev routines if CONFIG_BLOCK is not defined. This does not prohibit NFS roots or JFFS2. (*) The bdflush, ioprio_set and ioprio_get syscalls can now be absent (return error ENOSYS by way of cond_syscall if so). (*) The seclvl_bd_claim() and seclvl_bd_release() security calls do nothing if CONFIG_BLOCK is not set, since they can't then happen.

* Driver Core: add ability for drivers to do a threaded probeGreg Kroah-Hartman2006-09-251-0/+5
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This adds the infrastructure for drivers to do a threaded probe, and waits at init time for all currently outstanding probes to complete. A new kernel thread will be created when the probe() function for the driver is called, if the multithread_probe bit is set in the driver saying it can support this kind of operation. I have tested this with USB and PCI, and it works, and shaves off a lot of time in the boot process, but there are issues with finding root boot disks, and some USB drivers assume that this can never happen, so it is currently not enabled for any bus type. Individual drivers can enable this right now if they wish, and bus authors can selectivly turn it on as well, once they determine that their subsystem will work properly with it.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | When we fail to mount from a valid root device list out the filesystems we have tried to mount it with. This gives the user vital diagnostics as to what is missing from their kernel. For example in the fragment below the kernel does not have CRAMFS compiled into the kernel and yet appears to recognise it at the RAMDISK detect stage. Later the mount fails as we don't have the filesystem. RAMDISK: cramfs filesystem found at block 0 RAMDISK: Loading 1604KiB [1 disk] into ram disk... done.

* [PATCH] vfs: MS_VERBOSE should be MS_SILENTTheodore Ts'o2006-03-241-1/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | The meaning of MS_VERBOSE is backwards; if the bit is set, it really means, "don't be verbose". This is confusing and counter-intuitive. In addition, there is also no way to set the MS_VERBOSE flag in the mount(8) program in util-linux, but interesting, it does define options which would do the right thing if MS_SILENT were defined, which unfortunately we do not: #ifdef MS_SILENT { "quiet", 0, 0, MS_SILENT }, /* be quiet */ { "loud", 0, 1, MS_SILENT }, /* print out messages. */ #endif So the obvious fix is to deprecate the use of MS_VERBOSE and replace it with MS_SILENT.

Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
