      Drivers: scsi: remove __dev* attributes. · 6f039790
      Greg Kroah-Hartman authored
      CONFIG_HOTPLUG is going away as an option.  As a result, the __dev*
      markings need to be removed.
      
      This change removes the use of __devinit, __devexit_p, __devinitdata,
      __devinitconst, and __devexit from these drivers.
      
      Based on patches originally written by Bill Pemberton, but redone by me
      in order to handle some of the coding style issues better, by hand.

      workqueue: deprecate flush[_delayed]_work_sync() · 43829731
      Tejun Heo authored
      flush[_delayed]_work_sync() are now spurious.  Mark them deprecated
      and convert all users to flush[_delayed]_work().
      
      If you're cc'd and wondering what's going on: Now all workqueues are
      non-reentrant and the regular flushes guarantee that the work item is
      not pending or running on any CPU on return, so there's no reason to
      use the sync flushes at all and they're going away.
      
      This patch doesn't make any functional difference.

      [SCSI] pmcraid: reject negative request size · b5b51544
      Dan Rosenberg authored
      There's a code path in pmcraid that can be reached via device ioctl that
      causes all sorts of ugliness, including heap corruption or triggering the
      OOM killer due to consecutive allocation of large numbers of pages.
      
      First, the user can call pmcraid_chr_ioctl(), with a type
      PMCRAID_PASSTHROUGH_IOCTL.  This calls through to
      pmcraid_ioctl_passthrough().  Next, a pmcraid_passthrough_ioctl_buffer
      is copied in, and the request_size variable is set to
      buffer->ioarcb.data_transfer_length, which is an arbitrary 32-bit
      signed value provided by the user.  If a negative value is provided
      here, bad things can happen.  For example,
      pmcraid_build_passthrough_ioadls() is called with this request_size,
      which immediately calls pmcraid_alloc_sglist() with a negative size.
      The resulting math on allocating a scatter list can result in an
      overflow in the kzalloc() call (if num_elem is 0, the sglist will be
      smaller than expected), or if num_elem is unexpectedly large the
      subsequent loop will call alloc_pages() repeatedly, a high number of
      pages will be allocated and the OOM killer might be invoked.
      
      It looks like preventing this value from being negative in
      pmcraid_ioctl_passthrough() would be sufficient.

      SCSI host lock push-down · f281233d
      Jeff Garzik authored
      Move the mid-layer's ->queuecommand() invocation from being locked
      with the host lock to being unlocked to facilitate speeding up the
      critical path for drivers who don't need this lock taken anyway.
      
      The patch below presents a simple SCSI host lock push-down as an
      equivalent transformation.  No locking or other behavior should change
      with this patch.  All existing bugs and locking orders are preserved.
      
      Additionally, add one parameter to queuecommand,
      	struct Scsi_Host *
      and remove one parameter from queuecommand,
      	void (*done)(struct scsi_cmnd *)
      
      Scsi_Host* is a convenient pointer that most host drivers need anyway,
      and 'done' is redundant to struct scsi_cmnd->scsi_done.
      
      Minimal code disturbance was attempted with this change.  Most drivers
      needed only two one-line modifications for their host lock push-down.

      llseek: automatically add .llseek fop · 6038f373
      Arnd Bergmann authored
      All file_operations should get a .llseek operation so we can make
      nonseekable_open the default for future file operations without a
      .llseek pointer.
      
      The three cases that we can automatically detect are no_llseek, seq_lseek
      and default_llseek. For cases where we can we can automatically prove that
      the file offset is always ignored, we use noop_llseek, which maintains
      the current behavior of not returning an error from a seek.
      
      New drivers should normally not use noop_llseek but instead use no_llseek
      and call nonseekable_open at open time.  Existing drivers can be converted
      to do the same when the maintainer knows for certain that no user code
      relies on calling seek on the device file.
      
      The generated code is often incorrectly indented and right now contains
      comments that clarify for each added line why a specific variant was
      chosen. In the version that gets submitted upstream, the comments will
      be gone and I will manually fix the indentation, because there does not
      seem to be a way to do that using coccinelle.
      
      Some amount of new code is currently sitting in linux-next that should get
      the same modifications, which I will do at the end of the merge window.
      
      Many thanks to Julia Lawall for helping me learn to write a semantic
      patch that does all this.

      Tejun Heo authored
      include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking implicit slab.h inclusion from percpu.h
      
      percpu.h is included by sched.h and module.h and thus ends up being
      included when building most .c files.  percpu.h includes slab.h which
      in turn includes gfp.h making everything defined by the two files
      universally available and complicating inclusion dependencies.
      
      percpu.h -> slab.h dependency is about to be removed.  Prepare for
      this change by updating users of gfp and slab facilities include those
      headers directly instead of assuming availability.  As this conversion
      needs to touch large number of source files, the following script is
      used as the basis of conversion.
      
        http://userweb.kernel.org/~tj/misc/slabh-sweep.py
      
      The script does the followings.
      
      * Scan files for gfp and slab usages and update includes such that
        only the necessary includes are there.  ie. if only gfp is used,
        gfp.h, if slab is used, slab.h.
      
      * When the script inserts a new include, it looks at the include
        blocks and try to put the new include such that its order conforms
        to its surrounding.  It's put in the include block which contains
        core kernel includes, in the same order that the rest are ordered -
        alphabetical, Christmas tree, rev-Xmas-tree or at the end if there
        doesn't seem to be any matching order.
      
      * If the script can't find a place to put a new include (mostly
        because the file doesn't have fitting include block), it prints out
        an error message indicating which .h file needs to be added to the
        file.
      
      The conversion was done in the following steps.
      
      1. The initial automatic conversion of all .c files updated slightly
         over 4000 files, deleting around 700 includes and adding ~480 gfp.h
         and ~3000 slab.h inclusions.  The script emitted errors for ~400
         files.
      
      2. Each error was manually checked.  Some didn't need the inclusion,
         some needed manual addition while adding it to implementation .h or
         embedding .c file was more appropriate for others.  This step added
         inclusions to around 150 files.
      
      3. The script was run again and the output was compared to the edits
         from #2 to make sure no file was left behind.
      
      4. Several build tests were done and a couple of problems were fixed.
         e.g. lib/decompress_*.c used malloc/free() wrappers around slab
         APIs requiring slab.h to be added manually.
      
      5. The script was run on all .h files but without automatically
         editing them as sprinkling gfp.h and slab.h inclusions around .h
         files could easily lead to inclusion dependency hell.  Most gfp.h
         inclusion directives were ignored as stuff from gfp.h was usually
         wildly available and often used in preprocessor macros.  Each
         slab.h inclusion directive was examined and added manually as
         necessary.
      
      6. percpu.h was updated not to include slab.h.
      
      7. Build test were done on the following configurations and failures
         were fixed.  CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL was turned off for all tests (as my
         distributed build env didn't work with gcov compiles) and a few
         more options had to be turned off depending on archs to make things
         build (like ipr on powerpc/64 which failed due to missing writeq).
      
         * x86 and x86_64 UP and SMP allmodconfig and a custom test config.
         * powerpc and powerpc64 SMP allmodconfig
         * sparc and sparc64 SMP allmodconfig
         * ia64 SMP allmodconfig
         * s390 SMP allmodconfig
         * alpha SMP allmodconfig
         * um on x86_64 SMP allmodconfig
      
      8. percpu.h modifications were reverted so that it could be applied as
         a separate patch and serve as bisection point.
      
      Given the fact that I had only a couple of failures from tests on step
      6, I'm fairly confident about the coverage of this conversion patch.
      If there is a breakage, it's likely to be something in one of the arch
      headers which should be easily discoverable easily on most builds of
      the specific arch.

      [SCSI] pmcraid: support SMI-S object model of storage pool · 729c8456
      Anil Ravindranath authored
      PMC-Sierra mgmt application uses SMI-S model. According to SMI-S, the
      object model exposed by the SMI-S provider should show an StoragePool
      which contains member disks of a RAID Virtual disk and StorageVolume
      based on the StoragePool. But according to SMI-S, there is a possibility
      where StoragePool is created but StorageVolume is not yet created. To
      satisfy this scenario, we are trying a hidden RAID Virtual disk. The
      hidden RAID virtual disk will not be exposed to OS. Once a StorageVolume
      is created for this RAID virtual disk it is exposed.
