      ext4: flush any pending end_io requests before DIO reads w/dioread_nolock · dccaf33f
      Jiaying Zhang authored
      
      
      There is a race between ext4 buffer write and direct_IO read with
      dioread_nolock mount option enabled. The problem is that we clear
      PageWriteback flag during end_io time but will do
      uninitialized-to-initialized extent conversion later with dioread_nolock.
      If an O_direct read request comes in during this period, ext4 will return
      zero instead of the recently written data.
      
      This patch checks whether there are any pending uninitialized-to-initialized
      extent conversion requests before doing O_direct read to close the race.
      Note that this is just a bandaid fix. The fundamental issue is that we
      clear PageWriteback flag before we really complete an IO, which is
      problem-prone. To fix the fundamental issue, we may need to implement an
      extent tree cache that we can use to look up pending to-be-converted extents.

      drm/i915: set GFX_MODE to pre-Ivybridge default value even on Ivybridge · b095cd0a
      Jesse Barnes authored
      
      
      Prior to Ivybridge, the GFX_MODE would default to 0x800, meaning that
      MI_FLUSH would flush the TLBs in addition to the rest of the caches
      indicated in the MI_FLUSH command.  However starting with Ivybridge, the
      register defaults to 0x2800 out of reset, meaning that to invalidate the
      TLB we need to use PIPE_CONTROL.  Since we're not doing that yet, go
      back to the old default so things work.

      In pcibios_get_phb_of_node(), we will crash while booting if
      bus->bridge->parent is NULL.
      
      Check for this case and avoid dereferencing the NULL pointer.

      We have a kernel build regression since 3.1-rc1, which is about 10%
      regression. The kernel source is in an ext3 filesystem.

          cfq: Remove special treatment for metadata rqs.
      
      Apparently this is caused by lack metadata preemption, where ext3/ext4
      do use READ_META. I didn't see a way to fix the issue, so suggest
      reverting the patch.
