      afs: Remote abort can cause BUG in rxrpc code · c0173863
      Anton Blanchard authored
      When writing files to afs I sometimes hit a BUG:
      kernel BUG at fs/afs/rxrpc.c:179!
      With a backtrace of:
      The cause is:
      Looking at a tcpdump of the session the abort happens because we
      are exceeding our disk quota:
      	rx abort fs reply store-data error diskquota exceeded (32)
      So the abort error is valid. We hit the BUG because we haven't
      freed all the resources for the call.
      By freeing any skbs in call->rx_queue before calling afs_free_call
      we avoid hitting leaking memory and avoid hitting the BUG.

      afs: Read of file returns EBADMSG · 2c724fb9
      Anton Blanchard authored
      A read of a large file on an afs mount failed:
      # cat junk.file > /dev/null
      cat: junk.file: Bad message
      Looking at the trace, call->offset wrapped since it is only an
      unsigned short. In afs_extract_data:
              _enter("{%u},{%zu},%d,,%zu", call->offset, len, last, count);
              if (call->offset < count) {
                      if (last) {
                              _leave(" = -EBADMSG [%d < %zu]", call->offset, count);
                              return -EBADMSG;
      Which matches the trace:
      [cat   ] ==> afs_extract_data({65132},{524},1,,65536)
      [cat   ] <== afs_extract_data() = -EBADMSG [0 < 65536]
      call->offset went from 65132 to 0. Fix this by making call->offset an
      unsigned int.

      C6X: remove dead code from entry.S · 6e780cf5
      Mark Salter authored
      The ENDPROC() on sys_fadvise64_c6x() in arch/c6x/kernel/entry.S is
      outside of the conditional block with the matching ENTRY() macro. This
      leads a newer (v2.22 vs. v2.20) assembler to complain:
        /tmp/ccGZBaPT.s: Assembler messages:
        /tmp/ccGZBaPT.s: Error: .size expression for sys_fadvise64_c6x does not evaluate to a constant
      The conditional block became dead code when c6x switched to generic
      unistd.h and should be removed along with the offending ENDPROC().

      iscsi-target: Fix reservation conflict -EBUSY response handling bug · 00fdc6bb
      Nicholas Bellinger authored
      This patch addresses a iscsi-target specific bug related to reservation conflict
      handling in iscsit_handle_scsi_cmd() that has been causing reservation conflicts
      to complete and not fail as expected due to incorrect errno checking.  The problem
      occured with the change to return -EBUSY from transport_generic_cmd_sequencer() ->
      transport_generic_allocate_tasks() failures, that broke iscsit_handle_scsi_cmd()
      checking for -EINVAL in order to invoke a non GOOD status response.
      This was manifesting itself as data corruption with legacy SPC-2 reservations,
      but also effects iscsi-target LUNs with SPC-3 persistent reservations.
      This bug was originally introduced in lio-core commit:

      target: Fix compatible reservation handling (CRH=1) with legacy RESERVE/RELEASE · 087a03b3
      Nicholas Bellinger authored
      This patch addresses a bug with target_check_scsi2_reservation_conflict()
      return checking in target_scsi2_reservation_[reserve,release]() that was
      preventing CRH=1 operation from silently succeeding in the two special
      cases defined by SPC-3, and not failing with reservation conflict status
      when dealing with legacy RESERVE/RELEASE + active SPC-3 PR logic.
      Also explictly set cmd->scsi_status = SAM_STAT_RESERVATION_CONFLICT during
      the early non reservation holder failure from pr_ops->t10_seq_non_holder()
      check in transport_generic_cmd_sequencer() for fabrics that already expect
      it to be set.
      This bug was originally introduced in mainline commit:

      sparc32: Add -Av8 to assembler command line. · e0adb990
      David S. Miller authored
      Newer version of binutils are more strict about specifying the
      correct options to enable certain classes of instructions.
      The sparc32 build is done for v7 in order to support sun4c systems
      which lack hardware integer multiply and divide instructions.
      So we have to pass -Av8 when building the assembler routines that
      use these instructions and get patched into the kernel when we find
      out that we have a v8 capable cpu.

       "The most important bit here is the TCP syncookies issue, which seems
        to have been busted for some time.  That fix has been verified in
        production by the reporter.
        1) Persistent TUN devices erroneously hold on to the network namespace
           in such a way that it cannot be shutdown.  Fix from Stanislav
           Kinsbursky with help from Eric Dumazet.
        2) TCP SYN cookies have been broken for a while due to how the route
           lookup flow key is managed, connections can be delayed by as much
           as 20 seconds due to this bug.  Fix from Eric Dumazet.
        3) Missing jiffies.h include in lib/dynamic_queue_limits.c can break
           the build, from Tom Herbert.
        4) Add USB device ID for Sitecom LN-031, from Joerg Neikes.
        5) Fix OOPS in delayed workqueue in iwlegacy, from Stanislaw Gruszka.
        6) rt2x00 TX queue can be disabled forever due to races, fix by
           synchronizing pause/unpause with a lock.  Also from Stanislaw
