      [PATCH] reiserfs: do not add save links for O_DIRECT writes · c5574768
      Vladimir V. Saveliev authored
      We add a save link for O_DIRECT writes to protect the i_size against the
      crashes before we actually finish the I/O.  If we hit an -ENOSPC in
      aops->prepare_write(), we would do a truncate() to release the blocks which
      might have got initialized.  Now the truncate would add another save link
      for the same inode causing a reiserfs panic for having multiple save links
      for the same inode.

      [PATCH] reiserfs: add missing D-cache flushing · de21c57b
      Alexey Dobriyan authored
      Looks like, reiserfs_prepare_file_region_for_write() doesn't contain
      several flush_dcache_page() calls.

      [PATCH] fix reiserfs bad path release panic · 87b4126f
      Suzuki K P authored
      One of our test team hit a reiserfs_panic while running fsstress tests on
      2.6.19-rc1.  The message looks like :
        REISERFS: panic(device Null superblock):
        reiserfs[5676]: assertion !(p->path_length != 1 ) failed at
        fs/reiserfs/stree.c:397:reiserfs_check_path: path not properly relsed.
      The backtrace looked :
        kernel BUG in reiserfs_panic at fs/reiserfs/prints.c:361!
      Upon debugging I found that the restart_transaction was not releasing
      the path if the th->refcount was > 1.
      int restart_transaction(struct reiserfs_transaction_handle *th,
                                 			struct inode *inode, struct path *path)
               /* we cannot restart while nested */
               if (th->t_refcount > 1) { <<- Path is not released in this case!
                       return 0;
               pathrelse(path); <<- Path released here.
      This could happen in such a situation :
      In reiserfs/inode.c: reiserfs_get_block() ::
            if (repeat == NO_DISK_SPACE || repeat == QUOTA_EXCEEDED) {
                /* restart the transaction to give the journal a chance to free
                 ** some blocks.  releases the path, so we have to go back to
                 ** research if we succeed on the second try
                SB_JOURNAL(inode->i_sb)->j_next_async_flush = 1;
              -->>  retval = restart_transaction(th, inode, &path); <<--
        We are supposed to release the path, no matter we succeed or fail. But
      if the th->refcount is > 1, the path is still valid. And,
                if (retval)
                         goto failure;
                repeat =
                    _allocate_block(th, block, inode,
                                   &allocated_block_nr, NULL, create);
      If the above allocate_block fails with NO_DISK_SPACE or QUOTA_EXCEEDED,
      we would have path which is not released.
               if (repeat != NO_DISK_SPACE && repeat != QUOTA_EXCEEDED) {
                         goto research;
               if (repeat == QUOTA_EXCEEDED)
                         retval = -EDQUOT;
                         retval = -ENOSPC;
               goto failure;
               reiserfs_check_path(&path); << Panics here !
      Attached here is a patch which could fix the issue.
      fix reiserfs/inode.c : restart_transaction() to release the path in all
      The restart_transaction() doesn't release the path when the the journal
      handle has a refcount > 1.  This would trigger a reiserfs_panic() if we
      encounter an -ENOSPC / -EDQUOT in reiserfs_get_block().

      [PATCH] slab: remove kmem_cache_t · e18b890b
      Christoph Lameter authored
      Replace all uses of kmem_cache_t with struct kmem_cache.
      The patch was generated using the following script:
      	# Replace one string by another in all the kernel sources.
      	set -e
      	for file in `find * -name "*.c" -o -name "*.h"|xargs grep -l $1`; do
      		quilt add $file
      		sed -e "1,\$s/$1/$2/g" $file >/tmp/$$
      		mv /tmp/$$ $file
      		quilt refresh
      The script was run like this
      	sh replace kmem_cache_t "struct kmem_cache"

      [PATCH] separate bdi congestion functions from queue congestion functions · 3fcfab16
      Andrew Morton authored
      Separate out the concept of "queue congestion" from "backing-dev congestion".
      Congestion is a backing-dev concept, not a queue concept.
      The blk_* congestion functions are retained, as wrappers around the core
      backing-dev congestion functions.
      This proper layering is needed so that NFS can cleanly use the congestion
      functions, and so that CONFIG_BLOCK=n actually links.

      BUG_ON conversion for fs/reiserfs · 14a61442
      Eric Sesterhenn authored
      This patch converts several if () BUG(); construct to BUG_ON();
      which occupies less space, uses unlikely and is safer when
      BUG() is disabled. S_ISREG() has no side effects, so the
      conversion is safe.

      [PATCH] VFS: Make filldir_t and struct kstat deal in 64-bit inode numbers · afefdbb2
      David Howells authored
      These patches make the kernel pass 64-bit inode numbers internally when
      communicating to userspace, even on a 32-bit system.  They are required
      because some filesystems have intrinsic 64-bit inode numbers: NFS3+ and XFS
      for example.  The 64-bit inode numbers are then propagated to userspace
      automatically where the arch supports it.
      Problems have been seen with userspace (eg: ld.so) using the 64-bit inode
      number returned by stat64() or getdents64() to differentiate files, and
      failing because the 64-bit inode number space was compressed to 32-bits, and
      so overlaps occur.
      This patch:
      Make filldir_t take a 64-bit inode number and struct kstat carry a 64-bit
      inode number so that 64-bit inode numbers can be passed back to userspace.
      The stat functions then returns the full 64-bit inode number where
      available and where possible.  If it is not possible to represent the inode
      number supplied by the filesystem in the field provided by userspace, then
      error EOVERFLOW will be issued.
      Similarly, the getdents/readdir functions now pass the full 64-bit inode
      number to userspace where possible, returning EOVERFLOW instead when a
      directory entry is encountered that can't be properly represented.
      Note that this means that some inodes will not be stat'able on a 32-bit
      system with old libraries where they were before - but it does mean that
      there will be no ambiguity over what a 32-bit inode number refers to.
      Note similarly that directory scans may be cut short with an error on a
      32-bit system with old libraries where the scan would work before for the
      same reasons.
      It is judged unlikely that this situation will occur because modern glibc
      uses 64-bit capable versions of stat and getdents class functions
      exclusively, and that older systems are unlikely to encounter
      unrepresentable inode numbers anyway.
