      Fix up possibly racy module refcounting · 5fbfb18d
      Nick Piggin authored
      Module refcounting is implemented with a per-cpu counter for speed.
      However there is a race when tallying the counter where a reference may
      be taken by one CPU and released by another.  Reference count summation
      may then see the decrement without having seen the previous increment,
      leading to lower than expected count.  A module which never has its
      actual reference drop below 1 may return a reference count of 0 due to
      this race.
      Module removal generally runs under stop_machine, which prevents this
      race causing bugs due to removal of in-use modules.  However there are
      other real bugs in module.c code and driver code (module_refcount is
      exported) where the callers do not run under stop_machine.
      Fix this by maintaining running per-cpu counters for the number of
      module refcount increments and the number of refcount decrements.  The
      increments are tallied after the decrements, so any decrement seen will
      always have its corresponding increment counted.  The final refcount is
      the difference of the total increments and decrements, preventing a
      low-refcount from being returned.

      audit: preface audit printk with audit · 449cedf0
      Eric Paris authored
      There have been a number of reports of people seeing the message:
      "name_count maxed, losing inode data: dev=00:05, inode=3185"
      in dmesg.  These usually lead to people reporting problems to the filesystem
      group who are in turn clueless what they mean.
      Eventually someone finds me and I explain what is going on and that
      these come from the audit system.  The basics of the problem is that the
      audit subsystem never expects a single syscall to 'interact' (for some
      wish washy meaning of interact) with more than 20 inodes.  But in fact
      some operations like loading kernel modules can cause changes to lots of
      inodes in debugfs.
      There are a couple real fixes being bandied about including removing the
      fixed compile time limit of 20 or not auditing changes in debugfs (or
      both) but neither are small and obvious so I am not sending them for
      immediate inclusion (I hope Al forwards a real solution next devel
      In the meantime this patch simply adds 'audit' to the beginning of the
      crap message so if a user sees it, they come blame me first and we can
      talk about what it means and make sure we understand all of the reasons
      it can happen and make sure this gets solved correctly in the long run.

      Saving -EINVAL as unsigned char truncates the high bits and changes it
      into 234 instead of -22.  This breaks the test for "if (ret == -EINVAL)"

      Btrfs: add check for changed leaves in setup_leaf_for_split · 109f6aef
      Chris Mason authored
      setup_leaf_for_split needs to drop the path and search again, and has
      checks to see if the item we want to split changed size.  But, it misses
      the case where the leaf changed and now has enough room for the item
      we want to insert.
      This adds an extra check to make sure the leaf really needs splitting
      before we call btrfs_split_leaf(), which keeps us from trying to split
      a leaf with a single item.
      btrfs_split_leaf() will blindly split the single item leaf, leaving us
      with one good leaf and one empty leaf and then a crash.

      Btrfs: create snapshot references in same commit as snapshot · 6bdb72de
      Sage Weil authored
      This creates the reference to a new snapshot in the same commit as the
      snapshot itself.  This avoids the need for a second commit in order for a
      snapshot to be persistent, and also avoids the problem of "leaking" a
      new snapshot tree root if the host crashes before the second commit takes
      It is not at all clear to me why it wasn't always done this way.  If there
      is still a reason for the two-stage {create,finish}_pending_snapshots()
      approach I'm missing something!  :)
      I've been running this for a couple weeks under pretty heavy usage (a few
      snapshots per minute) without obvious problems.

      Btrfs: fix small race with delalloc flushing waitqueue's · b5cb1600
      Josef Bacik authored
      Everytime we start a new flushing thread, we init the waitqueue if there isn't a
      flushing thread running.  The problem with this is we check
      space_info->flushing, which we clear right before doing a wake_up on the
      flushing waitqueue, which causes problems if we init the waitqueue in the middle
      of clearing the flushing flagh and calling wake_up.  This is hard to hit, but
      the code is wrong anyway, so init the flushing/allocating waitqueue when
      creating the space info and let it be.  I haven't seen the panic since I've been
      using this patch.  Thanks,

      Btrfs: use add_to_page_cache_lru, use __page_cache_alloc · 28ecb609
      Nick Piggin authored
      Pagecache pages should be allocated with __page_cache_alloc, so they
      obey pagecache memory policies.
      add_to_page_cache_lru is exported, so it should be used. Benefits over
      using a private pagevec: neater code, 128 bytes fewer stack used, percpu
      lru ordering is preserved, and finally don't need to flush pagevec
      before returning so batching may be shared with other LRU insertions.
