      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.
      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
      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
      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
      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.

    • rfkill: rewrite · 19d337df
      Johannes Berg authored
      This patch completely rewrites the rfkill core to address
      the following deficiencies:
       * all rfkill drivers need to implement polling where necessary
         rather than having one central implementation
       * updating the rfkill state cannot be done from arbitrary
         contexts, forcing drivers to use schedule_work and requiring
         lots of code
       * rfkill drivers need to keep track of soft/hard blocked
         internally -- the core should do this
       * the rfkill API has many unexpected quirks, for example being
         asymmetric wrt. alloc/free and register/unregister
       * rfkill can call back into a driver from within a function the
         driver called -- this is prone to deadlocks and generally
         should be avoided
       * rfkill-input pointlessly is a separate module
       * drivers need to #ifdef rfkill functions (unless they want to
         depend on or select RFKILL) -- rfkill should provide inlines
         that do nothing if it isn't compiled in
       * the rfkill structure is not opaque -- drivers need to initialise
         it correctly (lots of sanity checking code required) -- instead
         force drivers to pass the right variables to rfkill_alloc()
       * the documentation is hard to read because it always assumes the
         reader is completely clueless and contains way TOO MANY CAPS
       * the rfkill code needlessly uses a lot of locks and atomic
         operations in locked sections
       * fix LED trigger to actually change the LED when the radio state
         changes -- this wasn't done before

    • netlink: change return-value logic of netlink_broadcast() · ff491a73
      Pablo Neira Ayuso authored
      Currently, netlink_broadcast() reports errors to the caller if no
      messages at all were delivered:
      1) If, at least, one message has been delivered correctly, returns 0.
      2) Otherwise, if no messages at all were delivered due to skb_clone()
         failure, return -ENOBUFS.
      3) Otherwise, if there are no listeners, return -ESRCH.
      With this patch, the caller knows if the delivery of any of the
      messages to the listeners have failed:
      1) If it fails to deliver any message (for whatever reason), return
      2) Otherwise, if all messages were delivered OK, returns 0.
      3) Otherwise, if no listeners, return -ESRCH.
      In the current ctnetlink code and in Netfilter in general, we can add
      reliable logging and connection tracking event delivery by dropping the
      packets whose events were not successfully delivered over Netlink. Of
      course, this option would be settable via /proc as this approach reduces
      performance (in terms of filtered connections per seconds by a stateful
      firewall) but providing reliable logging and event delivery (for
      conntrackd) in return.
      This patch also changes some clients of netlink_broadcast() that
      may report ENOBUFS errors via printk. This error handling is not
      of any help. Instead, the userspace daemons that are listening to
      those netlink messages should resync themselves with the kernel-side
      if they hit ENOBUFS.
      BTW, netlink_broadcast() clients include those that call
      cn_netlink_send(), nlmsg_multicast() and genlmsg_multicast() since they
      internally call netlink_broadcast() and return its error value.
