[PATCH] s390_hypfs filesystem On zSeries machines there exists an interface which allows the operating system to retrieve LPAR hypervisor accounting data. For example, it is possible to get usage data for physical and virtual cpus. In order to provide this information to user space programs, I implemented a new virtual Linux file system named 's390_hypfs' using the Linux 2.6 libfs framework. The name 's390_hypfs' stands for 'S390 Hypervisor Filesystem'. All the accounting information is put into different virtual files which can be accessed from user space. All data is represented as ASCII strings. When the file system is mounted the accounting information is retrieved and a file system tree is created with the attribute files containing the cpu information. The content of the files remains unchanged until a new update is made. An update can be triggered from user space through writing 'something' into a special purpose update file. We create the following directory structure: <mount-point>/ update cpus/ <cpu-id> type mgmtime <cpu-id> ... hyp/ type systems/ <lpar-name> cpus/ <cpu-id> type mgmtime cputime onlinetime <cpu-id> ... <lpar-name> cpus/ ... - update: File to trigger update - cpus/: Directory for all physical cpus - cpus/<cpu-id>/: Directory for one physical cpu. - cpus/<cpu-id>/type: Type name of physical zSeries cpu. - cpus/<cpu-id>/mgmtime: Physical-LPAR-management time in microseconds. - hyp/: Directory for hypervisor information - hyp/type: Typ of hypervisor (currently only 'LPAR Hypervisor') - systems/: Directory for all LPARs - systems/<lpar-name>/: Directory for one LPAR. - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/: Directory for the virtual cpus - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/type: Typ of cpu. - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/mgmtime: Accumulated number of microseconds during which a physical CPU was assigned to the logical cpu and the cpu time was consumed by the hypervisor and was not provided to the LPAR (LPAR overhead). - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/cputime: Accumulated number of microseconds during which a physical CPU was assigned to the logical cpu and the cpu time was consumed by the LPAR. - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/onlinetime: Accumulated number of microseconds during which the logical CPU has been online. As mount point for the filesystem /sys/hypervisor/s390 is created. The update process is triggered when writing 'something' into the 'update' file at the top level hypfs directory. You can do this e.g. with 'echo 1 > update'. During the update the whole directory structure is deleted and built up again.

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.

[PATCH] s390_hypfs filesystem On zSeries machines there exists an interface which allows the operating system to retrieve LPAR hypervisor accounting data. For example, it is possible to get usage data for physical and virtual cpus. In order to provide this information to user space programs, I implemented a new virtual Linux file system named 's390_hypfs' using the Linux 2.6 libfs framework. The name 's390_hypfs' stands for 'S390 Hypervisor Filesystem'. All the accounting information is put into different virtual files which can be accessed from user space. All data is represented as ASCII strings. When the file system is mounted the accounting information is retrieved and a file system tree is created with the attribute files containing the cpu information. The content of the files remains unchanged until a new update is made. An update can be triggered from user space through writing 'something' into a special purpose update file. We create the following directory structure: <mount-point>/ update cpus/ <cpu-id> type mgmtime <cpu-id> ... hyp/ type systems/ <lpar-name> cpus/ <cpu-id> type mgmtime cputime onlinetime <cpu-id> ... <lpar-name> cpus/ ... - update: File to trigger update - cpus/: Directory for all physical cpus - cpus/<cpu-id>/: Directory for one physical cpu. - cpus/<cpu-id>/type: Type name of physical zSeries cpu. - cpus/<cpu-id>/mgmtime: Physical-LPAR-management time in microseconds. - hyp/: Directory for hypervisor information - hyp/type: Typ of hypervisor (currently only 'LPAR Hypervisor') - systems/: Directory for all LPARs - systems/<lpar-name>/: Directory for one LPAR. - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/: Directory for the virtual cpus - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/type: Typ of cpu. - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/mgmtime: Accumulated number of microseconds during which a physical CPU was assigned to the logical cpu and the cpu time was consumed by the hypervisor and was not provided to the LPAR (LPAR overhead). - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/cputime: Accumulated number of microseconds during which a physical CPU was assigned to the logical cpu and the cpu time was consumed by the LPAR. - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/onlinetime: Accumulated number of microseconds during which the logical CPU has been online.

[PATCH] s390_hypfs filesystem On zSeries machines there exists an interface which allows the operating system to retrieve LPAR hypervisor accounting data. For example, it is possible to get usage data for physical and virtual cpus. In order to provide this information to user space programs, I implemented a new virtual Linux file system named 's390_hypfs' using the Linux 2.6 libfs framework. The name 's390_hypfs' stands for 'S390 Hypervisor Filesystem'. All the accounting information is put into different virtual files which can be accessed from user space. All data is represented as ASCII strings. When the file system is mounted the accounting information is retrieved and a file system tree is created with the attribute files containing the cpu information. The content of the files remains unchanged until a new update is made. An update can be triggered from user space through writing 'something' into a special purpose update file. We create the following directory structure: <mount-point>/ update cpus/ <cpu-id> type mgmtime <cpu-id> ... hyp/ type systems/ <lpar-name> cpus/ <cpu-id> type mgmtime cputime onlinetime <cpu-id> ... <lpar-name> cpus/ ... - update: File to trigger update - cpus/: Directory for all physical cpus - cpus/<cpu-id>/: Directory for one physical cpu. - cpus/<cpu-id>/type: Type name of physical zSeries cpu. - cpus/<cpu-id>/mgmtime: Physical-LPAR-management time in microseconds. - hyp/: Directory for hypervisor information - hyp/type: Typ of hypervisor (currently only 'LPAR Hypervisor') - systems/: Directory for all LPARs - systems/<lpar-name>/: Directory for one LPAR. - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/: Directory for the virtual cpus - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/type: Typ of cpu. - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/mgmtime: Accumulated number of microseconds during which a physical CPU was assigned to the logical cpu and the cpu time was consumed by the hypervisor and was not provided to the LPAR (LPAR overhead). - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/cputime: Accumulated number of microseconds during which a physical CPU was assigned to the logical cpu and the cpu time was consumed by the LPAR. - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/onlinetime: Accumulated number of microseconds during which the logical CPU has been online.

[PATCH] s390_hypfs filesystem On zSeries machines there exists an interface which allows the operating system to retrieve LPAR hypervisor accounting data. For example, it is possible to get usage data for physical and virtual cpus. In order to provide this information to user space programs, I implemented a new virtual Linux file system named 's390_hypfs' using the Linux 2.6 libfs framework. The name 's390_hypfs' stands for 'S390 Hypervisor Filesystem'. All the accounting information is put into different virtual files which can be accessed from user space. All data is represented as ASCII strings. When the file system is mounted the accounting information is retrieved and a file system tree is created with the attribute files containing the cpu information. The content of the files remains unchanged until a new update is made. An update can be triggered from user space through writing 'something' into a special purpose update file. We create the following directory structure: <mount-point>/ update cpus/ <cpu-id> type mgmtime <cpu-id> ... hyp/ type systems/ <lpar-name> cpus/ <cpu-id> type mgmtime cputime onlinetime <cpu-id> ... <lpar-name> cpus/ ... - update: File to trigger update - cpus/: Directory for all physical cpus - cpus/<cpu-id>/: Directory for one physical cpu. - cpus/<cpu-id>/type: Type name of physical zSeries cpu. - cpus/<cpu-id>/mgmtime: Physical-LPAR-management time in microseconds. - hyp/: Directory for hypervisor information - hyp/type: Typ of hypervisor (currently only 'LPAR Hypervisor') - systems/: Directory for all LPARs - systems/<lpar-name>/: Directory for one LPAR. - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/: Directory for the virtual cpus - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/type: Typ of cpu. - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/mgmtime: Accumulated number of microseconds during which a physical CPU was assigned to the logical cpu and the cpu time was consumed by the hypervisor and was not provided to the LPAR (LPAR overhead). - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/cputime: Accumulated number of microseconds during which a physical CPU was assigned to the logical cpu and the cpu time was consumed by the LPAR. - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/onlinetime: Accumulated number of microseconds during which the logical CPU has been online.

[PATCH] s390_hypfs filesystem On zSeries machines there exists an interface which allows the operating system to retrieve LPAR hypervisor accounting data. For example, it is possible to get usage data for physical and virtual cpus. In order to provide this information to user space programs, I implemented a new virtual Linux file system named 's390_hypfs' using the Linux 2.6 libfs framework. The name 's390_hypfs' stands for 'S390 Hypervisor Filesystem'. All the accounting information is put into different virtual files which can be accessed from user space. All data is represented as ASCII strings. When the file system is mounted the accounting information is retrieved and a file system tree is created with the attribute files containing the cpu information. The content of the files remains unchanged until a new update is made. An update can be triggered from user space through writing 'something' into a special purpose update file. We create the following directory structure: <mount-point>/ update cpus/ <cpu-id> type mgmtime <cpu-id> ... hyp/ type systems/ <lpar-name> cpus/ <cpu-id> type mgmtime cputime onlinetime <cpu-id> ... <lpar-name> cpus/ ... - update: File to trigger update - cpus/: Directory for all physical cpus - cpus/<cpu-id>/: Directory for one physical cpu. - cpus/<cpu-id>/type: Type name of physical zSeries cpu. - cpus/<cpu-id>/mgmtime: Physical-LPAR-management time in microseconds. - hyp/: Directory for hypervisor information - hyp/type: Typ of hypervisor (currently only 'LPAR Hypervisor') - systems/: Directory for all LPARs - systems/<lpar-name>/: Directory for one LPAR. - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/: Directory for the virtual cpus - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/type: Typ of cpu. - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/mgmtime: Accumulated number of microseconds during which a physical CPU was assigned to the logical cpu and the cpu time was consumed by the hypervisor and was not provided to the LPAR (LPAR overhead). - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/cputime: Accumulated number of microseconds during which a physical CPU was assigned to the logical cpu and the cpu time was consumed by the LPAR. - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/onlinetime: Accumulated number of microseconds during which the logical CPU has been online.

[PATCH] s390_hypfs filesystem On zSeries machines there exists an interface which allows the operating system to retrieve LPAR hypervisor accounting data. For example, it is possible to get usage data for physical and virtual cpus. In order to provide this information to user space programs, I implemented a new virtual Linux file system named 's390_hypfs' using the Linux 2.6 libfs framework. The name 's390_hypfs' stands for 'S390 Hypervisor Filesystem'. All the accounting information is put into different virtual files which can be accessed from user space. All data is represented as ASCII strings. When the file system is mounted the accounting information is retrieved and a file system tree is created with the attribute files containing the cpu information. The content of the files remains unchanged until a new update is made. An update can be triggered from user space through writing 'something' into a special purpose update file. We create the following directory structure: <mount-point>/ update cpus/ <cpu-id> type mgmtime <cpu-id> ... hyp/ type systems/ <lpar-name> cpus/ <cpu-id> type mgmtime cputime onlinetime <cpu-id> ... <lpar-name> cpus/ ... - update: File to trigger update - cpus/: Directory for all physical cpus - cpus/<cpu-id>/: Directory for one physical cpu. - cpus/<cpu-id>/type: Type name of physical zSeries cpu. - cpus/<cpu-id>/mgmtime: Physical-LPAR-management time in microseconds. - hyp/: Directory for hypervisor information - hyp/type: Typ of hypervisor (currently only 'LPAR Hypervisor') - systems/: Directory for all LPARs - systems/<lpar-name>/: Directory for one LPAR. - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/: Directory for the virtual cpus - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/type: Typ of cpu. - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/mgmtime: Accumulated number of microseconds during which a physical CPU was assigned to the logical cpu and the cpu time was consumed by the hypervisor and was not provided to the LPAR (LPAR overhead). - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/cputime: Accumulated number of microseconds during which a physical CPU was assigned to the logical cpu and the cpu time was consumed by the LPAR. - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/onlinetime: Accumulated number of microseconds during which the logical CPU has been online.

llseek: automatically add .llseek fop 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. ===== begin semantic patch ===== // This adds an llseek= method to all file operations, // as a preparation for making no_llseek the default. // // The rules are // - use no_llseek explicitly if we do nonseekable_open // - use seq_lseek for sequential files // - use default_llseek if we know we access f_pos // - use noop_llseek if we know we don't access f_pos, // but we still want to allow users to call lseek // @ open1 exists @ identifier nested_open; @@ nested_open(...) { <+... nonseekable_open(...) ...+> } @ open exists@ identifier open_f; identifier i, f; identifier open1.nested_open; @@ int open_f(struct inode *i, struct file *f) { <+...

fs: Limit sys_mount to only request filesystem modules. Modify the request_module to prefix the file system type with "fs-" and add aliases to all of the filesystems that can be built as modules to match. A common practice is to build all of the kernel code and leave code that is not commonly needed as modules, with the result that many users are exposed to any bug anywhere in the kernel. Looking for filesystems with a fs- prefix limits the pool of possible modules that can be loaded by mount to just filesystems trivially making things safer with no real cost. Using aliases means user space can control the policy of which filesystem modules are auto-loaded by editing /etc/modprobe.d/*.conf with blacklist and alias directives. Allowing simple, safe, well understood work-arounds to known problematic software. This also addresses a rare but unfortunate problem where the filesystem name is not the same as it's module name and module auto-loading would not work. While writing this patch I saw a handful of such cases. The most significant being autofs that lives in the module autofs4. This is relevant to user namespaces because we can reach the request module in get_fs_type() without having any special permissions, and people get uncomfortable when a user specified string (in this case the filesystem type) goes all of the way to request_module. After having looked at this issue I don't think there is any particular reason to perform any filtering or permission checks beyond making it clear in the module request that we want a filesystem module. The common pattern in the kernel is to call request_module() without regards to the users permissions. In general all a filesystem module does once loaded is call register_filesystem() and go to sleep. Which means there is not much attack surface exposed by loading a filesytem module unless the filesystem is mounted. In a user namespace filesystems are not mounted unless .fs_flags = FS_USERNS_MOUNT, which most filesystems do not set today.

[PATCH] s390_hypfs filesystem On zSeries machines there exists an interface which allows the operating system to retrieve LPAR hypervisor accounting data. For example, it is possible to get usage data for physical and virtual cpus. In order to provide this information to user space programs, I implemented a new virtual Linux file system named 's390_hypfs' using the Linux 2.6 libfs framework. The name 's390_hypfs' stands for 'S390 Hypervisor Filesystem'. All the accounting information is put into different virtual files which can be accessed from user space. All data is represented as ASCII strings. When the file system is mounted the accounting information is retrieved and a file system tree is created with the attribute files containing the cpu information. The content of the files remains unchanged until a new update is made. An update can be triggered from user space through writing 'something' into a special purpose update file. We create the following directory structure: <mount-point>/ update cpus/ <cpu-id> type mgmtime <cpu-id> ... hyp/ type systems/ <lpar-name> cpus/ <cpu-id> type mgmtime cputime onlinetime <cpu-id> ... <lpar-name> cpus/ ... - update: File to trigger update - cpus/: Directory for all physical cpus - cpus/<cpu-id>/: Directory for one physical cpu. - cpus/<cpu-id>/type: Type name of physical zSeries cpu. - cpus/<cpu-id>/mgmtime: Physical-LPAR-management time in microseconds. - hyp/: Directory for hypervisor information - hyp/type: Typ of hypervisor (currently only 'LPAR Hypervisor') - systems/: Directory for all LPARs - systems/<lpar-name>/: Directory for one LPAR. - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/: Directory for the virtual cpus - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/type: Typ of cpu. - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/mgmtime: Accumulated number of microseconds during which a physical CPU was assigned to the logical cpu and the cpu time was consumed by the hypervisor and was not provided to the LPAR (LPAR overhead). - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/cputime: Accumulated number of microseconds during which a physical CPU was assigned to the logical cpu and the cpu time was consumed by the LPAR. - systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/onlinetime: Accumulated number of microseconds during which the logical CPU has been online. As mount point for the filesystem /sys/hypervisor/s390 is created. The update process is triggered when writing 'something' into the 'update' file at the top level hypfs directory. You can do this e.g. with 'echo 1 > update'. During the update the whole directory structure is deleted and built up again.
