      Pagecache zeroing: zero_user_segment, zero_user_segments and zero_user · eebd2aa3
      Christoph Lameter authored
      Simplify page cache zeroing of segments of pages through 3 functions
      zero_user_segments(page, start1, end1, start2, end2)
              Zeros two segments of the page. It takes the position where to
              start and end the zeroing which avoids length calculations and
      	makes code clearer.
      zero_user_segment(page, start, end)
              Same for a single segment.
      zero_user(page, start, length)
              Length variant for the case where we know the length.
      We remove the zero_user_page macro. Issues:
      1. Its a macro. Inline functions are preferable.
      2. The KM_USER0 macro is only defined for HIGHMEM.
         Having to treat this special case everywhere makes the
         code needlessly complex. The parameter for zeroing is always
         KM_USER0 except in one single case that we open code.
      Avoiding KM_USER0 makes a lot of code not having to be dealing
      with the special casing for HIGHMEM anymore. Dealing with
      kmap is only necessary for HIGHMEM configurations. In those
      configurations we use KM_USER0 like we do for a series of other
      functions defined in highmem.h.
      Since KM_USER0 is depends on HIGHMEM the existing zero_user_page
      function could not be a macro. zero_user_* functions introduced
      here can be be inline because that constant is not used when these
      functions are called.
      Also extract the flushing of the caches to be outside of the kmap.

      [CIFS] Fix potential data corruption when writing out cached dirty pages · cea21805
      Jeff Layton authored
      Fix RedHat bug 329431
      The idea here is separate "conscious" from "unconscious" flushes.
      Conscious flushes are those due to a fsync() or close(). Unconscious
      ones are flushes that occur as a side effect of some other operation or
      due to memory pressure.
      Currently, when an error occurs during an unconscious flush (ENOSPC or
      EIO), we toss out the page and don't preserve that error to report to
      the user when a conscious flush occurs. If after the unconscious flush,
      there are no more dirty pages for the inode, the conscious flush will
      simply return success even though there were previous errors when writing
      out pages. This can lead to data corruption.
      The easiest way to reproduce this is to mount up a CIFS share that's
      very close to being full or where the user is very close to quota. mv
      a file to the share that's slightly larger than the quota allows. The
      writes will all succeed (since they go to pagecache). The mv will do a
      setattr to set the new file's attributes. This calls
      which will return an error since all of the pages can't be written out.
      Then later, when the flush and release ops occur, there are no more
      dirty pages in pagecache for the file and those operations return 0. mv
      then assumes that the file was written out correctly and deletes the
      CIFS already has a write_behind_rc variable where it stores the results
      from earlier flushes, but that value is only reported in cifs_close.
      Since the VFS ignores the return value from the release operation, this
      isn't helpful. We should be reporting this error during the flush
      This patch does the following:
      1) changes cifs_fsync to use filemap_write_and_wait and cifs_flush and also
      sync to check its return code. If it returns successful, they then check
      the value of write_behind_rc to see if an earlier flush had reported any
      errors. If so, they return that error and clear write_behind_rc.
      2) sets write_behind_rc in a few other places where pages are written
      out as a side effect of other operations and the code waits on them.
      3) changes cifs_setattr to only call filemap_write_and_wait for
      ATTR_SIZE changes.
      4) makes cifs_writepages accurately distinguish between EIO and ENOSPC
      errors when writing out pages.
      Some simple testing indicates that the patch works as expected and that
      it fixes the reproduceable known problem.

      [CIFS] Add support for new POSIX unlink · 2d785a50
      Steve French authored
      In the cleanup phase of the dbench test, we were noticing sharing
      violation followed by failed directory removals when dbench
      did not close the test files before the cleanup phase started.
      Using the new POSIX unlink, which Samba has supported for a few
      months, avoids this.

      [CIFS] CIFS should honour umask · 3ce53fc4
      Steve French authored
      This patch makes CIFS honour a process' umask like other filesystems.
      Of course the server is still free to munge the permissions if it wants
      to; but the client will send the "right" permissions to begin with.
      A few caveats:
      1) It only applies to filesystems that have CAP_UNIX (aka support unix
      2) It applies the correct mode to the follow up CIFSSMBUnixSetPerms()
      after remote creation
      When mode to CIFS/NTFS ACL mapping is complete we can do the
      same thing for that case for servers which do not
      support the Unix Extensions.

      [CIFS] UID/GID override on CIFS mounts to Samba · 4523cc30
      Steve French authored
      When CIFS Unix Extensions are negotiated we get the Unix uid and gid
      owners of the file from the server (on the Unix Query Path Info
      levels), but if the server's uids don't match the client uid's users
      were having to disable the Unix Extensions (which turned off features
      they still wanted).   The changeset patch allows users to override uid
      and/or gid for file/directory owner with a default uid and/or gid
      specified at mount (as is often done when mounting from Linux cifs
      client to Windows server).  This changeset also displays the uid
      and gid used by default in /proc/mounts (if applicable).
      Also cleans up code by adding some of the missing spaces after
      "if" keywords per-kernel style guidelines (as suggested by Randy Dunlap
      when he reviewed the patch).
