      devpts: Make each mount of devpts an independent filesystem. · eedf265a
      Eric W. Biederman authored
      The /dev/ptmx device node is changed to lookup the directory entry "pts"
      in the same directory as the /dev/ptmx device node was opened in.  If
      there is a "pts" entry and that entry is a devpts filesystem /dev/ptmx
      uses that filesystem.  Otherwise the open of /dev/ptmx fails.
      
      The DEVPTS_MULTIPLE_INSTANCES configuration option is removed, so that
      userspace can now safely depend on each mount of devpts creating a new
      instance of the filesystem.
      
      Each mount of devpts is now a separate and equal filesystem.
      
      Reserved ttys are now available to all instances of devpts where the
      mounter is in the initial mount namespace.
      
      A new vfs helper path_pts is introduced that finds a directory entry
      named "pts" in the directory of the passed in path, and changes the
      passed in path to point to it.  The helper path_pts uses a function
      path_parent_directory that was factored out of follow_dotdot.
      
      In the implementation of devpts:
       - devpts_mnt is killed as it is no longer meaningful if all mounts of
         devpts are equal.
       - pts_sb_from_inode is replaced by just inode->i_sb as all cached
         inodes in the tty layer are now from the devpts filesystem.
       - devpts_add_ref is rolled into the new function devpts_ptmx.  And the
         unnecessary inode hold is removed.
       - devpts_del_ref is renamed devpts_release and reduced to just a
         deacrivate_super.
       - The newinstance mount option continues to be accepted but is now
         ignored.
      
      In devpts_fs.h definitions for when !CONFIG_UNIX98_PTYS are removed as
      they are never used.
      
      Documentation/filesystems/devices.txt is updated to describe the current
      situation.
      
      This has been verified to work properly on openwrt-15.05, centos5,
      centos6, centos7, debian-6.0.2, debian-7.9, debian-8.2, ubuntu-14.04.3,
      ubuntu-15.10, fedora23, magia-5, mint-17.3, opensuse-42.1,
      slackware-14.1, gentoo-20151225 (13.0?), archlinux-2015-12-01.  With the
      caveat that on centos6 and on slackware-14.1 that there wind up being
      two instances of the devpts filesystem mounted on /dev/pts, the lower
      copy does not end up getting used.

      ipv6: hide ip6_encap_hlen/ip6_tnl_encap definitions · 9791d8e7
      Arnd Bergmann authored
      A recent cleanup moved MAX_IPTUN_ENCAP_OPS along with some other
      definitions, but it is now invisible when CONFIG_INET is
      not defined, but still referenced from ip6_tunnel.h:
      
      In file included from net/xfrm/xfrm_input.c:17:0:
      include/net/ip6_tunnel.h:67:17: error: 'MAX_IPTUN_ENCAP_OPS' undeclared here (not in a function)
         ip6tun_encaps[MAX_IPTUN_ENCAP_OPS];
                       ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
      
      This hides the ip6_encap_hlen and ip6_tnl_encap functions inside
      of CONFIG_INET so we don't run into the the problem.
      
      Alternatively we could move the macro out of the #ifdef again to
      restore the previous behavior

      <linux/hash.h>: Add support for architecture-specific functions · 468a9428
      George Spelvin authored
      This is just the infrastructure; there are no users yet.
      
      This is modelled on CONFIG_ARCH_RANDOM; a CONFIG_ symbol declares
      the existence of <asm/hash.h>.
      
      That file may define its own versions of various functions, and define
      HAVE_* symbols (no CONFIG_ prefix!) to suppress the generic ones.
      
      Included is a self-test (in lib/test_hash.c) that verifies the basics.
      It is NOT in general required that the arch-specific functions compute
      the same thing as the generic, but if a HAVE_* symbol is defined with
      the value 1, then equality is tested.

      Eliminate bad hash multipliers from hash_32() and hash_64() · ef703f49
      George Spelvin authored
      The "simplified" prime multipliers made very bad hash functions, so get rid
      of them.  This completes the work of 689de1d6.
      
      To avoid the inefficiency which was the motivation for the "simplified"
      multipliers, hash_64() on 32-bit systems is changed to use a different
      algorithm.  It makes two calls to hash_32() instead.
      
      drivers/media/usb/dvb-usb-v2/af9015.c uses the old GOLDEN_RATIO_PRIME_32
      for some horrible reason, so it inherits a copy of the old definition.

      Change hash_64() return value to 32 bits · 92d56774
      George Spelvin authored
      That's all that's ever asked for, and it makes the return
      type of hash_long() consistent.
      
      It also allows (upcoming patch) an optimized implementation
      of hash_64 on 32-bit machines.
      
      I tried adding a BUILD_BUG_ON to ensure the number of bits requested
      was never more than 32 (most callers use a compile-time constant), but
      adding <linux/bug.h> to <linux/hash.h> breaks the tools/perf compiler
      unless tools/perf/MANIFEST is updated, and understanding that code base
      well enough to update it is too much trouble.  I did the rest of an
      allyesconfig build with such a check, and nothing tripped.

      <linux/sunrpc/svcauth.h>: Define hash_str() in terms of hashlen_string() · 917ea166
      George Spelvin authored
      Finally, the first use of previous two patches: eliminate the
      separate ad-hoc string hash functions in the sunrpc code.
      
      Now hash_str() is a wrapper around hash_string(), and hash_mem() is
      likewise a wrapper around full_name_hash().
      
      Note that sunrpc code *does* call hash_mem() with a zero length, which
      is why the previous patch needed to handle that in full_name_hash().
      (Thanks, Bruce, for finding that!)
      
      This also eliminates the only caller of hash_long which asks for
      more than 32 bits of output.
      
      The comment about the quality of hashlen_string() and full_name_hash()
      is jumping the gun by a few patches; they aren't very impressive now,
      but will be improved greatly later in the series.

      fs/namei.c: Add hashlen_string() function · fcfd2fbf
      George Spelvin authored
      We'd like to make more use of the highly-optimized dcache hash functions
      throughout the kernel, rather than have every subsystem create its own,
      and a function that hashes basic null-terminated strings is required
      for that.
      
      (The name is to emphasize that it returns both hash and length.)
      
      It's actually useful in the dcache itself, specifically d_alloc_name().
      Other uses in the next patch.
      
      full_name_hash() is also tweaked to make it more generally useful:
      1) Take a "char *" rather than "unsigned char *" argument, to
         be consistent with hash_name().
      2) Handle zero-length inputs.  If we want more callers, we don't want
         to make them worry about corner cases.
