      License cleanup: add SPDX GPL-2.0 license identifier to files with no license · b2441318
      Greg Kroah-Hartman authored
      Many source files in the tree are missing licensing information, which
      makes it harder for compliance tools to determine the correct license.
      
      By default all files without license information are under the default
      license of the kernel, which is GPL version 2.
      
      Update the files which contain no license information with the 'GPL-2.0'
      SPDX license identifier.  The SPDX identifier is a legally binding
      shorthand, which can be used instead of the full boiler plate text.
      
      This patch is based on work done by Thomas Gleixner and Kate Stewart and
      Philippe Ombredanne.
      
      How this work was done:
      
      Patches were generated and checked against linux-4.14-rc6 for a subset of
      the use cases:
       - file had no licensing information it it.
       - file was a */uapi/* one with no licensing information in it,
       - file was a */uapi/* one with existing licensing information,
      
      Further patches will be generated in subsequent months to fix up cases
      where non-standard license headers were used, and references to license
      had to be inferred by heuristics based on keywords.
      
      The analysis to determine which SPDX License Identifier to be applied to
      a file was done in a spreadsheet of side by side results from of the
      output of two independent scanners (ScanCode & Windriver) producing SPDX
      tag:value files created by Philippe Ombredanne.  Philippe prepared the
      base worksheet, and did an initial spot review of a few 1000 files.
      
      The 4.13 kernel was the starting point of the analysis with 60,537 files
      assessed.  Kate Stewart did a file by file comparison of the scanner
      results in the spreadsheet to determine which SPDX license identifier(s)
      to be applied to the file. She confirmed any determination that was not
      immediately clear with lawyers working with the Linux Foundation.
      
      Criteria used to select files for SPDX license identifier tagging was:
       - Files considered eligible had to be source code files.
       - Make and config files were included as candidates if they contained >5
         lines of source
       - File already had some variant of a license header in it (even if <5
         lines).
      
      All documentation files were explicitly excluded.
      
      The following heuristics were used to determine which SPDX license
      identifiers to apply.
      
       - when both scanners couldn't find any license traces, file was
         considered to have no license information in it, and the top level
         COPYING file license applied.
      
         For non */uapi/* files that summary was:
      
         SPDX license identifier                            # files
         ---------------------------------------------------|-------
         GPL-2.0                                              11139
      
         and resulted in the first patch in this series.
      
         If that file was a */uapi/* path one, it was "GPL-2.0 WITH
         Linux-syscall-note" otherwise it was "GPL-2.0".  Results of that was:
      
         SPDX license identifier                            # files
         ---------------------------------------------------|-------
         GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note                        930
      
         and resulted in the second patch in this series.
      
       - if a file had some form of licensing information in it, and was one
         of the */uapi/* ones, it was denoted with the Linux-syscall-note if
         any GPL family license was found in the file or had no licensing in
         it (per prior point).  Results summary:
      
         SPDX license identifier                            # files
         ---------------------------------------------------|------
         GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note                       270
         GPL-2.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note                      169
         ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR BSD-2-Clause)    21
         ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR BSD-3-Clause)    17
         LGPL-2.1+ WITH Linux-syscall-note                      15
         GPL-1.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note                       14
         ((GPL-2.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR BSD-3-Clause)    5
         LGPL-2.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note                       4
         LGPL-2.1 WITH Linux-syscall-note                        3
         ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR MIT)              3
         ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) AND MIT)             1
      
         and that resulted in the third patch in this series.
      
       - when the two scanners agreed on the detected license(s), that became
         the concluded license(s).
      
       - when there was disagreement between the two scanners (one detected a
         license but the other didn't, or they both detected different
         licenses) a manual inspection of the file occurred.
      
       - In most cases a manual inspection of the information in the file
         resulted in a clear resolution of the license that should apply (and
         which scanner probably needed to revisit its heuristics).
      
       - When it was not immediately clear, the license identifier was
         confirmed with lawyers working with the Linux Foundation.
      
       - If there was any question as to the appropriate license identifier,
         the file was flagged for further research and to be revisited later
         in time.
      
      In total, over 70 hours of logged manual review was done on the
      spreadsheet to determine the SPDX license identifiers to apply to the
      source files by Kate, Philippe, Thomas and, in some cases, confirmation
      by lawyers working with the Linux Foundation.
      
      Kate also obtained a third independent scan of the 4.13 code base from
      FOSSology, and compared selected files where the other two scanners
      disagreed against that SPDX file, to see if there was new insights.  The
      Windriver scanner is based on an older version of FOSSology in part, so
      they are related.
      
      Thomas did random spot checks in about 500 files from the spreadsheets
      for the uapi headers and agreed with SPDX license identifier in the
      files he inspected. For the non-uapi files Thomas did random spot checks
      in about 15000 files.
      
      In initial set of patches against 4.14-rc6, 3 files were found to have
      copy/paste license identifier errors, and have been fixed to reflect the
      correct identifier.
      
      Additionally Philippe spent 10 hours this week doing a detailed manual
      inspection and review of the 12,461 patched files from the initial patch
      version early this week with:
       - a full scancode scan run, collecting the matched texts, detected
         license ids and scores
       - reviewing anything where there was a license detected (about 500+
         files) to ensure that the applied SPDX license was correct
       - reviewing anything where there was no detection but the patch license
         was not GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note to ensure that the applied
         SPDX license was correct
      
      This produced a worksheet with 20 files needing minor correction.  This
      worksheet was then exported into 3 different .csv files for the
      different types of files to be modified.
      
      These .csv files were then reviewed by Greg.  Thomas wrote a script to
      parse the csv files and add the proper SPDX tag to the file, in the
      format that the file expected.  This script was further refined by Greg
      based on the output to detect more types of files automatically and to
      distinguish between header and source .c files (which need different
      comment types.)  Finally Greg ran the script using the .csv files to
      generate the patches.

      block: replace bi_bdev with a gendisk pointer and partitions index · 74d46992
      Christoph Hellwig authored
      This way we don't need a block_device structure to submit I/O.  The
      block_device has different life time rules from the gendisk and
      request_queue and is usually only available when the block device node
      is open.  Other callers need to explicitly create one (e.g. the lightnvm
      passthrough code, or the new nvme multipathing code).
      
      For the actual I/O path all that we need is the gendisk, which exists
      once per block device.  But given that the block layer also does
      partition remapping we additionally need a partition index, which is
      used for said remapping in generic_make_request.
      
      Note that all the block drivers generally want request_queue or
      sometimes the gendisk, so this removes a layer of indirection all
      over the stack.

      mm, memcg: use consistent gfp flags during readahead · 8a5c743e
      Michal Hocko authored
      Vladimir has noticed that we might declare memcg oom even during
      readahead because read_pages only uses GFP_KERNEL (with mapping_gfp
      restriction) while __do_page_cache_readahead uses
      page_cache_alloc_readahead which adds __GFP_NORETRY to prevent from
      OOMs.  This gfp mask discrepancy is really unfortunate and easily
      fixable.  Drop page_cache_alloc_readahead() which only has one user and
      outsource the gfp_mask logic into readahead_gfp_mask and propagate this
      mask from __do_page_cache_readahead down to read_pages.
      
      This alone would have only very limited impact as most filesystems are
      implementing ->readpages and the common implementation mpage_readpages
      does GFP_KERNEL (with mapping_gfp restriction) again.  We can tell it to
      use readahead_gfp_mask instead as this function is called only during
      readahead as well.  The same applies to read_cache_pages.
      
      ext4 has its own ext4_mpage_readpages but the path which has pages !=
      NULL can use the same gfp mask.  Btrfs, cifs, f2fs and orangefs are
      doing a very similar pattern to mpage_readpages so the same can be
      applied to them as well.

      mm, fs: get rid of PAGE_CACHE_* and page_cache_{get,release} macros · 09cbfeaf
      Kirill A. Shutemov authored
      PAGE_CACHE_{SIZE,SHIFT,MASK,ALIGN} macros were introduced *long* time
      ago with promise that one day it will be possible to implement page
      cache with bigger chunks than PAGE_SIZE.
      
      This promise never materialized.  And unlikely will.
      
      We have many places where PAGE_CACHE_SIZE assumed to be equal to
      PAGE_SIZE.  And it's constant source of confusion on whether
      PAGE_CACHE_* or PAGE_* constant should be used in a particular case,
      especially on the border between fs and mm.
      
      Global switching to PAGE_CACHE_SIZE != PAGE_SIZE would cause to much
      breakage to be doable.
      
      Let's stop pretending that pages in page cache are special.  They are
      not.
      
      The changes are pretty straight-forward:
      
       - <foo> << (PAGE_CACHE_SHIFT - PAGE_SHIFT) -> <foo>;
      
       - <foo> >> (PAGE_CACHE_SHIFT - PAGE_SHIFT) -> <foo>;
      
       - PAGE_CACHE_{SIZE,SHIFT,MASK,ALIGN} -> PAGE_{SIZE,SHIFT,MASK,ALIGN};
      
       - page_cache_get() -> get_page();
      
       - page_cache_release() -> put_page();
      
      This patch contains automated changes generated with coccinelle using
      script below.  For some reason, coccinelle doesn't patch header files.
      I've called spatch for them manually.
      
      The only adjustment after coccinelle is revert of changes to
      PAGE_CAHCE_ALIGN definition: we are going to drop it later.
      
      There are few places in the code where coccinelle didn't reach.  I'll
      fix them manually in a separate patch.  Comments and documentation also
      will be addressed with the separate patch.

      mm, fs: obey gfp_mapping for add_to_page_cache() · 063d99b4
      Michal Hocko authored
      Commit 6afdb859 ("mm: do not ignore mapping_gfp_mask in page cache
      allocation paths") has caught some users of hardcoded GFP_KERNEL used in
      the page cache allocation paths.  This, however, wasn't complete and
      there were others which went unnoticed.
      
      Dave Chinner has reported the following deadlock for xfs on loop device:
      : With the recent merge of the loop device changes, I'm now seeing
      : XFS deadlock on my single CPU, 1GB RAM VM running xfs/073.
      :
      : The deadlocked is as follows:
      :
      : kloopd1: loop_queue_read_work
      :       xfs_file_iter_read
      :       lock XFS inode XFS_IOLOCK_SHARED (on image file)
      :       page cache read (GFP_KERNEL)
      :       radix tree alloc
      :       memory reclaim
      :       reclaim XFS inodes
      :       log force to unpin inodes
      :       <wait for log IO completion>
      :
      : xfs-cil/loop1: <does log force IO work>
      :       xlog_cil_push
      :       xlog_write
      :       <loop issuing log writes>
      :               xlog_state_get_iclog_space()
      :               <blocks due to all log buffers under write io>
      :               <waits for IO completion>
      :
      : kloopd1: loop_queue_write_work
      :       xfs_file_write_iter
      :       lock XFS inode XFS_IOLOCK_EXCL (on image file)
      :       <wait for inode to be unlocked>
      :
      : i.e. the kloopd, with it's split read and write work queues, has
      : introduced a dependency through memory reclaim. i.e. that writes
      : need to be able to progress for reads make progress.
      :
      : The problem, fundamentally, is that mpage_readpages() does a
      : GFP_KERNEL allocation, rather than paying attention to the inode's
      : mapping gfp mask, which is set to GFP_NOFS.
      :
      : The didn't used to happen, because the loop device used to issue
      : reads through the splice path and that does:
      :
      :       error = add_to_page_cache_lru(page, mapping, index,
      :                       GFP_KERNEL & mapping_gfp_mask(mapping));
      
      This has changed by commit aa4d8616 ("block: loop: switch to VFS
      ITER_BVEC").
      
      This patch changes mpage_readpage{s} to follow gfp mask set for the
      mapping.  There are, however, other places which are doing basically the
      same.
      
      lustre:ll_dir_filler is doing GFP_KERNEL from the function which
      apparently uses GFP_NOFS for other allocations so let's make this
      consistent.
      
      cifs:readpages_get_pages is called from cifs_readpages and
      __cifs_readpages_from_fscache called from the same path obeys mapping
      gfp.
      
      ramfs_nommu_expand_for_mapping is hardcoding GFP_KERNEL as well
      regardless it uses mapping_gfp_mask for the page allocation.
      
      ext4_mpage_readpages is the called from the page cache allocation path
      same as read_pages and read_cache_pages
      
      As I've noticed in my previous post I cannot say I would be happy about
      sprinkling mapping_gfp_mask all over the place and it sounds like we
      should drop gfp_mask argument altogether and use it internally in
      __add_to_page_cache_locked that would require all the filesystems to use
      mapping gfp consistently which I am not sure is the case here.  From a
      quick glance it seems that some file system use it all the time while
      others are selective.

      Christoph Hellwig authored
      Currently we have two different ways to signal an I/O error on a BIO:
      
       (1) by clearing the BIO_UPTODATE flag
       (2) by returning a Linux errno value to the bi_end_io callback
      
      The first one has the drawback of only communicating a single possible
      error (-EIO), and the second one has the drawback of not beeing persistent
      when bios are queued up, and are not passed along from child to parent
      bio in the ever more popular chaining scenario.  Having both mechanisms
      available has the additional drawback of utterly confusing driver authors
      and introducing bugs where various I/O submitters only deal with one of
      them, and the others have to add boilerplate code to deal with both kinds
      of error returns.
      
      So add a new bi_error field to store an errno value directly in struct
      bio and remove the existing mechanisms to clean all this up.

      writeback: implement foreign cgroup inode detection · 2a814908
      Tejun Heo authored
      As concurrent write sharing of an inode is expected to be very rare
      and memcg only tracks page ownership on first-use basis severely
      confining the usefulness of such sharing, cgroup writeback tracks
      ownership per-inode.  While the support for concurrent write sharing
      of an inode is deemed unnecessary, an inode being written to by
      different cgroups at different points in time is a lot more common,
      and, more importantly, charging only by first-use can too readily lead
      to grossly incorrect behaviors (single foreign page can lead to
      gigabytes of writeback to be incorrectly attributed).
      
      To resolve this issue, cgroup writeback detects the majority dirtier
      of an inode and will transfer the ownership to it.  To avoid
      unnnecessary oscillation, the detection mechanism keeps track of
      history and gives out the switch verdict only if the foreign usage
      pattern is stable over a certain amount of time and/or writeback
      attempts.
      
      The detection mechanism has fairly low space and computation overhead.
      It adds 8 bytes to struct inode (one int and two u16's) and minimal
      amount of calculation per IO.  The detection mechanism converges to
      the correct answer usually in several seconds of IO time when there's
      a clear majority dirtier.  Even when there isn't, it can reach an
      acceptable answer fairly quickly under most circumstances.
      
      Please see wb_detach_inode() for more details.
      
      This patch only implements detection.  Following patches will
      implement actual switching.
      
      v2: wbc_account_io() now checks whether the wbc is associated with a
          wb before dereferencing it.  This can happen when pageout() is
          writing pages directly without going through the usual writeback
          path.  As pageout() path is single-threaded, we don't want it to
          be blocked behind a slow cgroup and ultimately want it to delegate
          actual writing to the usual writeback path.

      writeback: make writeback_control track the inode being written back · b16b1deb
      Tejun Heo authored
      Currently, for cgroup writeback, the IO submission paths directly
      associate the bio's with the blkcg from inode_to_wb_blkcg_css();
      however, it'd be necessary to keep more writeback context to implement
      foreign inode writeback detection.  wbc (writeback_control) is the
      natural fit for the extra context - it persists throughout the
      writeback of each inode and is passed all the way down to IO
      submission paths.
      
      This patch adds wbc_attach_and_unlock_inode(), wbc_detach_inode(), and
      wbc_attach_fdatawrite_inode() which are used to associate wbc with the
      inode being written back.  IO submission paths now use wbc_init_bio()
      instead of directly associating bio's with blkcg themselves.  This
      leaves inode_to_wb_blkcg_css() w/o any user.  The function is removed.
      
      wbc currently only tracks the associated wb (bdi_writeback).  Future
      patches will add more for foreign inode detection.  The association is
      established under i_lock which will be depended upon when migrating
      foreign inodes to other wb's.
      
      As currently, once established, inode to wb association never changes,
      going through wbc when initializing bio's doesn't cause any behavior
      changes.
      
      v2: submit_blk_blkcg() now checks whether the wbc is associated with a
          wb before dereferencing it.  This can happen when pageout() is
          writing pages directly without going through the usual writeback
          path.  As pageout() path is single-threaded, we don't want it to
          be blocked behind a slow cgroup and ultimately want it to delegate
          actual writing to the usual writeback path.

      mpage: make __mpage_writepage() honor cgroup writeback · 429b3fb0
      Tejun Heo authored
      __mpage_writepage() is used to implement mpage_writepages() which in
      turn is used for ->writepages() of various filesystems.  All writeback
      logic is now updated to handle cgroup writeback and the block cgroup
      to issue IOs for is encoded in writeback_control and can be retrieved
      from the inode; however, __mpage_writepage() currently ignores the
      blkcg indicated by the inode and issues all bio's without explicit
      blkcg association.
      
      This patch updates __mpage_writepage() so that the issued bio's are
      associated with inode_to_writeback_blkcg_css(inode).
      
      v2: Updated for per-inode wb association.

      Immutable biovecs are going to require an explicit iterator. To
      implement immutable bvecs, a later patch is going to add a bi_bvec_done
      member to this struct; for now, this patch effectively just renames

      mm/fs: add hooks to support cleancache · c515e1fd
      Dan Magenheimer authored
      This fourth patch of eight in this cleancache series provides the
      core hooks in VFS for: initializing cleancache per filesystem;
      capturing clean pages reclaimed by page cache; attempting to get
      pages from cleancache before filesystem read; and ensuring coherency
      between pagecache, disk, and cleancache.  Note that the placement
      of these hooks was stable from 2.6.18 to 2.6.38; a minor semantic
      change was required due to a patchset in 2.6.39.
      
      All hooks become no-ops if CONFIG_CLEANCACHE is unset, or become
      a check of a boolean global if CONFIG_CLEANCACHE is set but no
      cleancache "backend" has claimed cleancache_ops.
      
      Details and a FAQ can be found in Documentation/vm/cleancache.txt

      include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking... · 5a0e3ad6
      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.
