      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.

      fs: convert a pile of fsync routines to errseq_t based reporting · 3b49c9a1
      Jeff Layton authored
      This patch converts most of the in-kernel filesystems that do writeback
      out of the pagecache to report errors using the errseq_t-based
      infrastructure that was recently added. This allows them to report
      errors once for each open file description.
      
      Most filesystems have a fairly straightforward fsync operation. They
      call filemap_write_and_wait_range to write back all of the data and
      wait on it, and then (sometimes) sync out the metadata.
      
      For those filesystems this is a straightforward conversion from calling
      filemap_write_and_wait_range in their fsync operation to calling
      file_write_and_wait_range.

      hfsplus: Don't clear SGID when inheriting ACLs · 84969465
      Jan Kara authored
      When new directory 'DIR1' is created in a directory 'DIR0' with SGID bit
      set, DIR1 is expected to have SGID bit set (and owning group equal to
      the owning group of 'DIR0'). However when 'DIR0' also has some default
      ACLs that 'DIR1' inherits, setting these ACLs will result in SGID bit on
      'DIR1' to get cleared if user is not member of the owning group.
      
      Fix the problem by creating __hfsplus_set_posix_acl() function that does
      not call posix_acl_update_mode() and use it when inheriting ACLs. That
      prevents SGID bit clearing and the mode has been properly set by
      posix_acl_create() anyway.

      vfs: make the string hashes salt the hash · 8387ff25
      Linus Torvalds authored
      We always mixed in the parent pointer into the dentry name hash, but we
      did it late at lookup time.  It turns out that we can simplify that
      lookup-time action by salting the hash with the parent pointer early
      instead of late.
      
      A few other users of our string hashes also wanted to mix in their own
      pointers into the hash, and those are updated to use the same mechanism.
      
      Hash users that don't have any particular initial salt can just use the
      NULL pointer as a no-salt.

      hfsplus: switch to ->iterate_shared() · 323ee8fc

      We need to protect the list of hfsplus_readdir_data against parallel
      insertions (in readdir) and removals (in release).  Add a spinlock
      for that.  Note that it has nothing to do with protection of
      hfsplus_readdir_data->key - we have an exclusion between hfsplus_readdir()
      and hfsplus_delete_cat() on directory lock and between several
      hfsplus_readdir() for the same struct file on ->f_pos_lock.  The spinlock
      is strictly for list changes.

      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.

      posix_acl: Inode acl caching fixes · b8a7a3a6
      Andreas Gruenbacher authored
      When get_acl() is called for an inode whose ACL is not cached yet, the
      get_acl inode operation is called to fetch the ACL from the filesystem.
      The inode operation is responsible for updating the cached acl with
      set_cached_acl().  This is done without locking at the VFS level, so
      another task can call set_cached_acl() or forget_cached_acl() before the
      get_acl inode operation gets to calling set_cached_acl(), and then
      get_acl's call to set_cached_acl() results in caching an outdate ACL.
      
      Prevent this from happening by setting the cached ACL pointer to a
      task-specific sentinel value before calling the get_acl inode operation.
      Move the responsibility for updating the cached ACL from the get_acl
      inode operations to get_acl().  There, only set the cached ACL if the
      sentinel value hasn't changed.
      
      The sentinel values are chosen to have odd values.  Likewise, the value
      of ACL_NOT_CACHED is odd.  In contrast, ACL object pointers always have
      an even value (ACLs are aligned in memory).  This allows to distinguish
      uncached ACLs values from ACL objects.
      
      In addition, switch from guarding inode->i_acl and inode->i_default_acl
      upates by the inode->i_lock spinlock to using xchg() and cmpxchg().
      
      Filesystems that do not want ACLs returned from their get_acl inode
      operations to be cached must call forget_cached_acl() to prevent the VFS
      from doing so.

      wrappers for ->i_mutex access · 5955102c
      Al Viro authored
      parallel to mutex_{lock,unlock,trylock,is_locked,lock_nested},
      inode_foo(inode) being mutex_foo(&inode->i_mutex).
      
      Please, use those for access to ->i_mutex; over the coming cycle
      ->i_mutex will become rwsem, with ->lookup() done with it held
      only shared.

      kmemcg: account certain kmem allocations to memcg · 5d097056
      Vladimir Davydov authored
      Mark those kmem allocations that are known to be easily triggered from
      userspace as __GFP_ACCOUNT/SLAB_ACCOUNT, which makes them accounted to
      memcg.  For the list, see below:
      
       - threadinfo
       - task_struct
       - task_delay_info
       - pid
       - cred
       - mm_struct
       - vm_area_struct and vm_region (nommu)
       - anon_vma and anon_vma_chain
       - signal_struct
       - sighand_struct
       - fs_struct
       - files_struct
       - fdtable and fdtable->full_fds_bits
       - dentry and external_name
       - inode for all filesystems. This is the most tedious part, because
         most filesystems overwrite the alloc_inode method.
      
      The list is far from complete, so feel free to add more objects.
      Nevertheless, it should be close to "account everything" approach and
      keep most workloads within bounds.  Malevolent users will be able to
      breach the limit, but this was possible even with the former "account
      everything" approach (simply because it did not account everything in
      fact).

      don't put symlink bodies in pagecache into highmem · 21fc61c7
      Al Viro authored
      kmap() in page_follow_link_light() needed to go - allowing to hold
      an arbitrary number of kmaps for long is a great way to deadlocking
      the system.
      
      new helper (inode_nohighmem(inode)) needs to be used for pagecache
      symlinks inodes; done for all in-tree cases.  page_follow_link_light()
      instrumented to yell about anything missed.
