2005-10-27[TCP]: Clear stale pred_flags when snd_wnd changesHerbert Xu
This bug is responsible for causing the infamous "Treason uncloaked" messages that's been popping up everywhere since the printk was added. It has usually been blamed on foreign operating systems. However, some of those reports implicate Linux as both systems are running Linux or the TCP connection is going across the loopback interface. In fact, there really is a bug in the Linux TCP header prediction code that's been there since at least 2.1.8. This bug was tracked down with help from Dale Blount. The effect of this bug ranges from harmless "Treason uncloaked" messages to hung/aborted TCP connections. The details of the bug and fix is as follows. When snd_wnd is updated, we only update pred_flags if tcp_fast_path_check succeeds. When it fails (for example, when our rcvbuf is used up), we will leave pred_flags with an out-of-date snd_wnd value. When the out-of-date pred_flags happens to match the next incoming packet we will again hit the fast path and use the current snd_wnd which will be wrong. In the case of the treason messages, it just happens that the snd_wnd cached in pred_flags is zero while tp->snd_wnd is non-zero. Therefore when a zero-window packet comes in we incorrectly conclude that the window is non-zero. In fact if the peer continues to send us zero-window pure ACKs we will continue making the same mistake. It's only when the peer transmits a zero-window packet with data attached that we get a chance to snap out of it. This is what triggers the treason message at the next retransmit timeout.

2005-10-27[PATCH] Yet more posix-cpu-timer fixesRoland McGrath
This just makes sure that a thread's expiry times can't get reset after it clears them in do_exit. This is what allowed us to re-introduce the stricter BUG_ON() check in a362f463a6d316d14daed0f817e151835ce97ff7. Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>

2005-10-26[PATCH] Fix cpu timers expiration timeOleg Nesterov
There's a silly off-by-one error in the code that updates the expiration of posix CPU timers, causing them to not be properly updated when they hit exactly on their expiration time (which should be the normal case). This causes them to then fire immediately again, and only _then_ get properly updated. Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>

2005-10-26[PATCH] Fix HFS+ to free up the space when a file is deleted.Peter Wainwright
fsck_hfs reveals lots of temporary files accumulating in the hidden directory "\000\000\000HFS+ Private Data". According to the HFS+ documentation these are files which are unlinked while in use. However, there may be a bug in the Linux hfsplus implementation which causes this to happen even when the files are not in use. It looks like the "opencnt" field is never initialized as (I think) it should be in hfsplus_read_inode. This means that a file can appear to be still in use when in fact it has been closed. This patch seems to fix it for me.

2005-10-26[PATCH] kill massive wireless-related log spamJeff Garzik
Although this message is having the intended effect of causing wireless driver maintainers to upgrade their code, I never should have merged this patch in its present form. Leading to tons of bug reports and unhappy users. Some wireless apps poll for statistics regularly, which leads to a printk() every single time they ask for stats. That's a little bit _too_ much of a reminder that the driver is using an old API. Change this to printing out the message once, per kernel boot.

2005-10-24[PATCH] posix-timers: fix posix_cpu_timer_set() vs run_posix_cpu_timers() raceOleg Nesterov
This might be harmless, but looks like a race from code inspection (I was unable to trigger it). I must admit, I don't understand why we can't return TIMER_RETRY after 'spin_unlock(&p->sighand->siglock)' without doing bump_cpu_timer(), but this is what original code does. posix_cpu_timer_set: read_lock(&tasklist_lock); spin_lock(&p->sighand->siglock); list_del_init(&timer->it.cpu.entry); spin_unlock(&p->sighand->siglock); We are probaly deleting the timer from run_posix_cpu_timers's 'firing' local list_head while run_posix_cpu_timers() does list_for_each_safe. Various bad things can happen, for example we can just delete this timer so that list_for_each() will not notice it and run_posix_cpu_timers() will not reset '->firing' flag. In that case, .... if (timer->it.cpu.firing) { read_unlock(&tasklist_lock); timer->it.cpu.firing = -1; return TIMER_RETRY; } sys_timer_settime() goes to 'retry:', calls posix_cpu_timer_set() again, it returns TIMER_RETRY ...

After exit_notify() does 'write_unlock_irq(&tasklist_lock)' and before do_exit() calls 'schedule() local timer interrupt can find tsk->exit_state != 0. If that state was EXIT_DEAD (or another cpu does sys_wait4) interrupted task has ->signal == NULL. At this moment exiting task has no pending cpu timers, they were cleaned up in __exit_signal()->posix_cpu_timers_exit{,_group}(), so we can just return from irq.

2005-10-24[PATCH] posix-timers: fix cleanup_timers() and run_posix_cpu_timers() racesOleg Nesterov

That means that this code in posix_cpu_timer_del() and posix_cpu_timer_set() lock_timer(timer); if (timer->task == NULL) return; read_lock(tasklist); put_task_struct(timer->task) is racy. With this patch timer->task modified and accounted only under timer->it_lock. Sadly, this means that dead task_struct won't be freed until timer deleted or armed. 2. run_posix_cpu_timers() collects expired timers into local list under tasklist + ->sighand again. That means that posix_cpu_timer_del() should check timer->it.cpu.firing under these locks too. Signed-off-by: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@tv-sign.ru> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>

2005-10-23[NEIGH] Fix timer leak in neigh_changeaddrHerbert Xu
neigh_changeaddr attempts to delete neighbour timers without setting nud_state. This doesn't work because the timer may have already fired when we acquire the write lock in neigh_changeaddr. The result is that the timer may keep firing for quite a while until the entry reaches NEIGH_FAILED. It should be setting the nud_state straight away so that if the timer has already fired it can simply exit once we relinquish the lock. In fact, this whole function is simply duplicating the logic in neigh_ifdown which in turn is already doing the right thing when it comes to deleting timers and setting nud_state. So all we have to do is take that code out and put it into a common function and make both neigh_changeaddr and neigh_ifdown call it. Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>
2005-10-23[NEIGH] Fix add_timer race in neigh_add_timerHerbert Xu

So it should only use mod_timer and deal with its return value accordingly. This bug would have led to rare neighbour cache entry leaks. Signed-off-by: Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>
