      SUNRPC new rpc_credops to test credential expiry · 4de6caa2
      Andy Adamson authored
      This patch provides the RPC layer helper functions to allow NFS to manage
      data in the face of expired credentials - such as avoiding buffered WRITEs
      and COMMITs when the gss context will expire before the WRITEs are flushed
      and COMMITs are sent.
      These helper functions enable checking the expiration of an underlying
      credential key for a generic rpc credential, e.g. the gss_cred gss context
      gc_expiry which for Kerberos is set to the remaining TGT lifetime.
      A new rpc_authops key_timeout is only defined for the generic auth.
      A new rpc_credops crkey_to_expire is only defined for the generic cred.
      A new rpc_credops crkey_timeout is only defined for the gss cred.
      Set a credential key expiry watermark, RPC_KEY_EXPIRE_TIMEO set to 240 seconds
      as a default and can be set via a module parameter as we need to ensure there
      is time for any dirty data to be flushed.
      If key_timeout is called on a credential with an underlying credential key that
      will expire within watermark seconds, we set the RPC_CRED_KEY_EXPIRE_SOON
      flag in the generic_cred acred so that the NFS layer can clean up prior to
      key expiration.
      Checking a generic credential's underlying credential involves a cred lookup.
      To avoid this lookup in the normal case when the underlying credential has
      a key that is valid (before the watermark), a notify flag is set in
      the generic credential the first time the key_timeout is called. The
      generic credential then stops checking the underlying credential key expiry, and
      the underlying credential (gss_cred) match routine then checks the key
      expiration upon each normal use and sets a flag in the associated generic
      credential only when the key expiration is within the watermark.
      This in turn signals the generic credential key_timeout to perform the extra
      credential lookup thereafter.

      This actually causes a build failure on a sparc32 defconfig build:
      `rpcauth_remove_module' referenced in section `.init.text' of net/built-in.o: defined in discarded section `.exit.text' of net/built-in.o
      I applied the following patch for today:
      `rpcauth_remove_module' referenced in section `.init.text' of net/built-in.o: defined in discarded section `.exit.text' of net/built-in.o

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

      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.
