* Merge branch 'for-3.8/core' of git://git.kernel.dk/linux-blockLinus Torvalds2012-12-171-2/+2

The branch contains: - The final version of the surprise device removal fixups from Bart. - Don't hide EFI partitions under advanced partition types. It's fairly wide spread these days. This is especially dangerous for systems that have both msdos and efi partition tables, where you want to keep them in sync. - Cleanup of using -1 instead of the proper NUMA_NO_NODE - Export control of bdi flusher thread CPU mask and default to using the home node (if known) from Jeff. - Export unplug tracepoint for MD. - Core improvements from Shaohua. Reinstate the recursive merge, as the original bug has been fixed. Add plugging for discard and also fix a problem handling non pow-of-2 discard limits. There's a trivial merge in block/blk-exec.c due to a fix that went into 3.7-rc at a later point than -rc4 where this is based." * 'for-3.8/core' of git://git.kernel.dk/linux-block: block: export block_unplug tracepoint block: add plug for blkdev_issue_discard block: discard granularity might not be power of 2 deadline: Allow 0ms deadline latency, increase the read speed partitions: enable EFI/GPT support by default bsg: Remove unused function bsg_goose_queue() block: Make blk_cleanup_queue() wait until request_fn finished block: Avoid scheduling delayed work on a dead queue block: Avoid that request_fn is invoked on a dead queue block: Let blk_drain_queue() caller obtain the queue lock block: Rename queue dead flag bdi: add a user-tunable cpu_list for the bdi flusher threads block: use NUMA_NO_NODE instead of -1 block: recursive merge requests block CFQ: avoid moving request to different queue
| * block: Avoid that request_fn is invoked on a dead queueBart Van Assche2012-12-061-1/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | A block driver may start cleaning up resources needed by its request_fn as soon as blk_cleanup_queue() finished, so request_fn must not be invoked after draining finished. This is important when blk_run_queue() is invoked without any requests in progress. As an example, if blk_drain_queue() and scsi_run_queue() run in parallel, blk_drain_queue() may have finished all requests after scsi_run_queue() has taken a SCSI device off the starved list but before that last function has had a chance to run the queue.

| * block: Rename queue dead flagBart Van Assche2012-12-061-1/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | QUEUE_FLAG_DEAD is used to indicate that queuing new requests must stop. After this flag has been set queue draining starts. However, during the queue draining phase it is still safe to invoke the queue's request_fn, so QUEUE_FLAG_DYING is a better name for this flag. This patch has been generated by running the following command over the kernel source tree: git grep -lEw 'blk_queue_dead|QUEUE_FLAG_DEAD' | xargs sed -i.tmp -e 's/blk_queue_dead/blk_queue_dying/g' \ -e 's/QUEUE_FLAG_DEAD/QUEUE_FLAG_DYING/g'; \ sed -i.tmp -e "s/QUEUE_FLAG_DYING$(printf \\t)*5/QUEUE_FLAG_DYING$(printf \\t)5/g" \ include/linux/blkdev.h; \ sed -i.tmp -e 's/ DEAD/ DYING/g' -e 's/dead queue/a dying queue/' \ -e 's/Dead queue/A dying queue/' block/blk-core.c Signed-off-by: Bart Van Assche <bvanassche@acm.org> Acked-by: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org> Cc: James Bottomley <JBottomley@Parallels.com> Cc: Mike Christie <michaelc@cs.wisc.edu> Cc: Jens Axboe <axboe@kernel.dk> Cc: Chanho Min <chanho.min@lge.com> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <axboe@kernel.dk>
* | block: Don't access request after it might be freedRoland Dreier2012-11-231-1/+7
|/ | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | After we've done __elv_add_request() and __blk_run_queue() in blk_execute_rq_nowait(), the request might finish and be freed immediately. Therefore checking if the type is REQ_TYPE_PM_RESUME isn't safe afterwards, because if it isn't, rq might be gone. Instead, check beforehand and stash the result in a temporary. This fixes crashes in blk_execute_rq_nowait() I get occasionally when running with lots of memory debugging options enabled -- I think this race is usually harmless because the window for rq to be reallocated is so small.

* [SCSI] block: Fix blk_execute_rq_nowait() dead queue handlingMuthukumar Ratty2012-07-201-3/+8
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | If the queue is dead blk_execute_rq_nowait() doesn't invoke the done() callback function. That will result in blk_execute_rq() being stuck in wait_for_completion(). Avoid this by initializing rq->end_io to the done() callback before we check the queue state. Also, make sure the queue lock is held around the invocation of the done() callback. Found this through source code review.

* block: add missing blk_queue_dead() checksTejun Heo2011-12-131-2/+4
| | | | | | | | | | | | | blk_insert_cloned_request(), blk_execute_rq_nowait() and blk_flush_plug_list() either didn't check whether the queue was dead or did it without holding queue_lock. Update them so that dead state is checked while holding queue_lock. AFAICS, this plugs all holes (requeue doesn't matter as the request is transitioning atomically from in_flight to queued).

* [SCSI] fix crash in scsi_dispatch_cmd()James Bottomley2011-07-211-0/+7
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | USB surprise removal of sr is triggering an oops in scsi_dispatch_command(). What seems to be happening is that USB is hanging on to a queue reference until the last close of the upper device, so the crash is caused by surprise remove of a mounted CD followed by attempted unmount. The problem is that USB doesn't issue its final commands as part of the SCSI teardown path, but on last close when the block queue is long gone. The long term fix is probably to make sr do the teardown in the same way as sd (so remove all the lower bits on ejection, but keep the upper disk alive until last close of user space). However, the current oops can be simply fixed by not allowing any commands to be sent to a dead queue. Cc: stable@kernel.org Signed-off-by: James Bottomley <JBottomley@Parallels.com>

I've kept the blk_queue_stopped check for now, but I suspect it's not needed as the check we do when the workqueue items runs should be enough.

* block: Prevent hang_check firing during long I/OMark Lord2010-09-241-1/+8
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | During long I/O operations, the hang_check timer may fire, trigger stack dumps that unnecessarily alarm the user. Eg. hdparm --security-erase NULL /dev/sdb ## can take *hours* to complete So, if hang_check is armed, we should wake up periodically to prevent it from triggering. This patch uses a wake-up interval equal to half the hang_check timer period, which keeps overhead low enough.
