[PATCH] add Big Endian variants of ioread/iowrite

In the new io infrastructure, all of our operators are expecting the
underlying device to be little endian (because the PCI bus, their main
consumer, is LE).

However, there are a fair few devices and busses in the world that are
actually Big Endian. There's even evidence that some of these BE bus and
chip types are attached to LE systems. Thus, there's a need for a BE
equivalent of our io{read,write}{16,32} operations.

The attached patch adds this as io{read,write}{16,32}be. When it's in,
I'll add the first consume (the 53c700 SCSI chip driver).

[PATCH] Direct IO async short read fix

The direct I/O code is mapping the read request to the file system block. If
the file size was not on a block boundary, the result would show the the read
reading past EOF. This was only happening for the AIO case. The non-AIO case
truncates the result to match file size (in direct_io_worker). This patch
does the same thing for the AIO case, it truncates the result to match the
file size if the read reads past EOF.

When I/O completes the result can be truncated to match the file size
without using i_size_read(), thus the aio result now matches the number of
bytes read to the end of file.

[PATCH] ext2 corruption - regression between 2.6.9 and 2.6.10

Whilst trying to stress test a Promise SX8 card, we stumbled across
some nasty filesystem corruption in ext2. Our tests involved
creating an ext2 partition, mounting, running several concurrent
fsx's over it, umounting, and fsck'ing, all scripted[1]. The fsck
would always return with errors.

This regression was traced back to a change between 2.6.9 and
2.6.10, which moves the functionality of ext2_put_inode into
ext2_clear_inode. The attached patch reverses this change, and
eliminated the source of corruption.

Mingming Cao <cmm@us.ibm.com> said:

I think his patch for ext2 is correct. The corruption on ext3 is not the same
issue he saw on ext2. I believe that's the race between discard reservation
and reservation in-use that we already fixed it in 2.6.12- rc1.

For the problem related to ext2, at the time when we design reservation for
ext3, we decide we only need to discard the reservation at the last file
close, so we have ext3_discard_reservation on iput_final- >ext3_clear_inode.

The ext2 handle discard preallocation differently at that time, it discard the
preallocation at each iput(), not in input_final(), so we think it's
unnecessary to thrash it so frequently, and the right thing to do, as we did
for ext3 reservation, discard preallocation on last iput(). So we moved the
ext2_discard_preallocation from ext2_put_inode(0 to ext2_clear_inode.

Since ext2 preallocation is doing pre-allocation on disk, so it is possible
that at the unmount time, someone is still hold the reference of the inode, so
the preallocation for a file is not discard yet, so we still mark those blocks
allocated on disk, while they are not actually in the inode's block map, so
fsck will catch/fix that error later.

This is not a issue for ext3, as ext3 reservation(pre-allocation) is done in
memory.

- remove useless global list of boards and use pci_set_drvdata instead
- unobsfucate init path by merging functions together
- kill various totally useless state variables
- .. probably more I forgot

Note that the tty part still generates lots of sparse warnings and there's
still a totally useless layer of function pointer indirections, but maybe
someone else will fix that bit up.

[PATCH] kernel/param.c: don't use .max when .num is NULL in param_array_set()

there seems to be a bug, at least for me, in kernel/param.c for arrays with
.num == NULL. If .num == NULL, the function param_array_set() uses &.max
for the call to param_array(), wich alters the .max value to the number of
arguments. The result is, you can't set more array arguments as the last
time you set the parameter.

example:

# a module 'example' with
# static int array[10] = { 0, };
# module_param_array(array, int, NULL, 0644);

$ insmod example.ko array=1,2,3
$ cat /sys/module/example/parameters/array
1,2,3
$ echo "4,3,2,1" > /sys/module/example/parameters/array
$ dmesg | tail -n 1
kernel: array: can take only 3 arguments

[PATCH] AYSNC IO using singals other than SIGIO

A question on sigwaitinfo based IO mechanism in multithreaded applications.

I am trying to use RT signals to notify me of IO events using RT signals
instead of SIGIO in a multithreaded applications. I noticed that there was
some discussion on lkml during november 1999 with the subject of the
discussion as "Signal driven IO". In the thread I noticed that RT signals
were being delivered to the worker thread. I am running 2.6.10 kernel and
I am trying to use the very same mechanism and I find that only SIGIO being
propogated to the worker threads and RT signals only being propogated to
the main thread and not the worker threads where I actually want them to be
propogated too. On further inspection I found that the following patch
which I have attached solves the problem.

I am not sure if this is a bug or feature in the kernel.

Roland McGrath <roland@redhat.com> said:

This relates only to fcntl F_SETSIG, which is a Linux extension. So there is
no POSIX issue. When changing various things like the normal SIGIO signalling
to do group signals, I was concerned strictly with the POSIX semantics and
generally avoided touching things in the domain of Linux inventions. That's
why I didn't change this when I changed the call right next to it. There is
no reason I can see that F_SETSIG-requested signals shouldn't use a group
signal like normal SIGIO does. I'm happy to ACK this patch, there is nothing
wrong with its change to the semantics in my book. But neither POSIX nor I
care a whit what F_SETSIG does.

[PATCH] possible use-after-free of bio

There is a possibility that a bio will be accessed after it has been freed
on SCSI. It happens if you submit a bio with BIO_SYNC marked and the
auto-unplugging kicks the request_fn, SCSI re-enables interrupts in-between
so if the request completes between the add_request() in __make_request()
and the bio_sync() call, we could be looking at a dead bio. It's a slim
race, but it has been triggered in the Real World.

So assign bio_sync() to a local variable instead.
