      Rationalize fasync return values · 60aa4924
      Jonathan Corbet authored
      Most fasync implementations do something like:
           return fasync_helper(...);
      But fasync_helper() will return a positive value at times - a feature used
      in at least one place.  Thus, a number of other drivers do:
           err = fasync_helper(...);
           if (err < 0)
                   return err;
           return 0;
      In the interests of consistency and more concise code, it makes sense to
      map positive return values onto zero where ->fasync() is called.

      Move FASYNC bit handling to f_op->fasync() · 76398425
      Jonathan Corbet authored
      Removing the BKL from FASYNC handling ran into the challenge of keeping the
      setting of the FASYNC bit in filp->f_flags atomic with regard to calls to
      the underlying fasync() function.  Andi Kleen suggested moving the handling
      of that bit into fasync(); this patch does exactly that.  As a result, we
      have a couple of internal API changes: fasync() must now manage the FASYNC
      bit, and it will be called without the BKL held.
      As it happens, every fasync() implementation in the kernel with one
      exception calls fasync_helper().  So, if we make fasync_helper() set the
      FASYNC bit, we can avoid making any changes to the other fasync()
      functions - as long as those functions, themselves, have proper locking.
      Most fasync() implementations do nothing but call fasync_helper() - which
      has its own lock - so they are easily verified as correct.  The BKL had
      already been pushed down into the rest.
      The networking code has its own version of fasync_helper(), so that code
      has been augmented with explicit FASYNC bit handling.

      Use f_lock to protect f_flags · db1dd4d3
      Jonathan Corbet authored
      Traditionally, changes to struct file->f_flags have been done under BKL
      protection, or with no protection at all.  This patch causes all f_flags
      changes after file open/creation time to be done under protection of
      f_lock.  This allows the removal of some BKL usage and fixes a number of
      longstanding (if microscopic) races.

      filesystem freeze: implement generic freeze feature · fcccf502
      Takashi Sato authored
      The ioctls for the generic freeze feature are below.

          fd: The file descriptor of the mountpoint
          FIFREEZE: request code for the freeze
          arg: Ignored
          Return value: 0 if the operation succeeds. Otherwise, -1
      o Unfreeze the filesystem

          fd: The file descriptor of the mountpoint
          FITHAW: request code for unfreeze
          arg: Ignored
          Return value: 0 if the operation succeeds. Otherwise, -1
          Error number: If the filesystem has already been unfrozen,
                        errno is set to EINVAL.

      GFS2: Support for FIEMAP ioctl · e9079cce
      Steven Whitehouse authored
      This patch implements the FIEMAP ioctl for GFS2. We can use the generic
      code (aside from a lock order issue, solved as per Ted Tso's suggestion)
      for which I've introduced a new variant of the generic function. We also
      have one exception to deal with, namely stuffed files, so we do that
      "by hand", setting all the required flags.
      This has been tested with a modified (I could only find an old version) of
      Eric's test program, and appears to work correctly.
      This patch does not currently support FIEMAP of xattrs, but the plan is to add
      that feature at some future point.

      generic block based fiemap implementation · 68c9d702
      Josef Bacik authored
      Any block based fs (this patch includes ext3) just has to declare its own
      fiemap() function and then call this generic function with its own
      get_block_t. This works well for block based filesystems that will map
      multiple contiguous blocks at one time, but will work for filesystems that
      only map one block at a time, you will just end up with an "extent" for each
      block. One gotcha is this will not play nicely where there is hole+data
      after the EOF. This function will assume its hit the end of the data as soon
      as it hits a hole after the EOF, so if there is any data past that it will
      not pick that up. AFAIK no block based fs does this anyway, but its in the
      comments of the function anyway just in case.

      vfs: vfs-level fiemap interface · c4b929b8
      Mark Fasheh authored
      Basic vfs-level fiemap infrastructure, which sets up a new ->fiemap
      inode operation.
      Userspace can get extent information on a file via fiemap ioctl. As input,
      the fiemap ioctl takes a struct fiemap which includes an array of struct
      fiemap_extent (fm_extents). Size of the extent array is passed as
      fm_extent_count and number of extents returned will be written into
      fm_mapped_extents. Offset and length fields on the fiemap structure
      (fm_start, fm_length) describe a logical range which will be searched for
      extents. All extents returned will at least partially contain this range.
      The actual extent offsets and ranges returned will be unmodified from their
      offset and range on-disk.
      The fiemap ioctl returns '0' on success. On error, -1 is returned and errno
      is set. If errno is equal to EBADR, then fm_flags will contain those flags
      which were passed in which the kernel did not understand. On all other
      errors, the contents of fm_extents is undefined.
      As fiemap evolved, there have been many authors of the vfs patch. As far as
      I can tell, the list includes:

      Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
      even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
      archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
      3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
      git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
      infrastructure for it.
      Let it rip!
