      Pull block fixes from Jens Axboe:
       "Here's a pull request for 4.11-rc, fixing a set of issues mostly
        centered around the new scheduling framework. These have been brewing
        for a while, but split up into what we absolutely need in 4.11, and
        what we can defer until 4.12. These are well tested, on both single
        queue and multiqueue setups, and with and without shared tags. They
        fix several hangs that have happened in testing.
        This is obviously larger than I would have preferred at this point in
        time, but I don't think we can shave much off this and still get the
        desired results.
        In detail, this pull request contains:
         - a set of five fixes for NVMe, mostly from Christoph and one from
         - a series from Bart, fixing issues with dm-mq and SCSI shared tags
           and scheduling. Note that one of those patches commit messages may
           read like an optimization, but it is in fact an important fix for
           queue restarts in particular.
         - a series from Omar, most importantly fixing a hang with multiple
           hardware queues when we fail to get a driver tag. Another important
           fix in there is for resizing hardware queues, which nbd does when
           handling multiple sockets for one connection.

           from Minchan"

      sysfs: be careful of error returns from ops->show() · c8a139d0
      NeilBrown authored
      ops->show() can return a negative error code.
      Commit 65da3484 ("sysfs: correctly handle short reads on PREALLOC attrs.")
      (in v4.4) caused this to be stored in an unsigned 'size_t' variable, so errors
      would look like large numbers.
      As a result, if an error is returned, sysfs_kf_read() will return the
      value of 'count', typically 4096.
      Commit 17d0774f ("sysfs: correctly handle read offset on PREALLOC attrs")
      (in v4.8) extended this error to use the unsigned large 'len' as a size for
      Consequently, if ->show returns an error, then the first read() on the
      sysfs file will return 4096 and could return uninitialized memory to
      If the application performs a subsequent read, this will trigger a memmove()
      with extremely large count, and is likely to crash the machine is bizarre ways.
      This bug can currently only be triggered by reading from an md
      sysfs attribute declared with __ATTR_PREALLOC() during the
      brief period between when mddev_put() deletes an mddev from
      the ->all_mddevs list, and when mddev_delayed_delete() - which is
      scheduled on a workqueue - completes.
      Before this, an error won't be returned by the ->show()
      After this, the ->show() won't be called.
      I can reproduce it reliably only by putting delay like
      early in mddev_delayed_delete(). Then after creating an
      md device md0 run
        echo clear > /sys/block/md0/md/array_state; cat /sys/block/md0/md/array_state
      The bug can be triggered without the usleep.

      staging: android: ashmem: lseek failed due to no FMODE_LSEEK. · 97fbfef6
      Shuxiao Zhang authored
      vfs_llseek will check whether the file mode has
      FMODE_LSEEK, no return failure. But ashmem can be
      lseek, so add FMODE_LSEEK to ashmem file.
      Comment From Greg Hackmann:
      	ashmem_llseek() passes the llseek() call through to the backing
      	shmem file.  91360b02 ("ashmem: use vfs_llseek()") changed
      	this from directly calling the file's llseek() op into a VFS
      	layer call.  This also adds a check for the FMODE_LSEEK bit, so
      	without that bit ashmem_llseek() now always fails with -ESPIPE.

      mm: move pcp and lru-pcp draining into single wq · ce612879
      Michal Hocko authored
      We currently have 2 specific WQ_RECLAIM workqueues in the mm code.
      vmstat_wq for updating pcp stats and lru_add_drain_wq dedicated to drain
      per cpu lru caches.  This seems more than necessary because both can run
      on a single WQ.  Both do not block on locks requiring a memory
      allocation nor perform any allocations themselves.  We will save one
      rescuer thread this way.
      On the other hand drain_all_pages() queues work on the system wq which
      doesn't have rescuer and so this depend on memory allocation (when all
      workers are stuck allocating and new ones cannot be created).
      Initially we thought this would be more of a theoretical problem but
      Hugh Dickins has reported:
      : 4.11-rc has been giving me hangs after hours of swapping load.  At
      : first they looked like memory leaks ("fork: Cannot allocate memory");
      : but for no good reason I happened to do "cat /proc/sys/vm/stat_refresh"
      : before looking at /proc/meminfo one time, and the stat_refresh stuck
      : in D state, waiting for completion of flush_work like many kworkers.
      : kthreadd waiting for completion of flush_work in drain_all_pages().
      This worker should be using WQ_RECLAIM as well in order to guarantee a
      forward progress.  We can reuse the same one as for lru draining and

      dax: fix radix tree insertion race · e11f8b7b
      Ross Zwisler authored
      While running generic/340 in my test setup I hit the following race.  It
      can happen with kernels that support FS DAX PMDs, so v4.10 thru
      Thread 1				Thread 2
      --------				--------
          'entry' is NULL, can't call lock_slot()
      					    <inserts a PMD mapping>
          __radix_tree_insert() fails with -EEXIST
          <fall back to 4k fault, and die horribly
           when inserting a 4k entry where a PMD exists>
      The issue is that we have to drop mapping->tree_lock while calling
      radix_tree_preload(), but since we didn't have a radix tree entry to
      lock (unlike in the pmd_downgrade case) we have no protection against
      Thread 2 coming along and inserting a PMD at the same index.  For 4k
      entries we handled this with a special-case response to -EEXIST coming
      from the __radix_tree_insert(), but this doesn't save us for PMDs
      because the -EEXIST case can also mean that we collided with a 4k entry
      in the radix tree at a different index, but one that is covered by our
      PMD range.
      So, correctly handle both the 4k and 2M collision cases by explicitly
      re-checking the radix tree for an entry at our index once we reacquire
      This patch has made it through a clean xfstests run with the current
      v4.11-rc5 based linux/master, and it also ran generic/340 500 times in a
      loop.  It used to fail within the first 10 iterations.

      In PT_SEIZED + LISTEN mode STOP/CONT signals cause a wakeup against

      userfaultfd: report actual registered features in fdinfo · 045098e9
      Mike Rapoport authored
      fdinfo for userfault file descriptor reports UFFD_API_FEATURES.  Up
      until recently, the UFFD_API_FEATURES was defined as 0, therefore
      corresponding field in fdinfo always contained zero.  Now, with
      introduction of several additional features, UFFD_API_FEATURES is not
      longer 0 and it seems better to report actual features requested for the
      userfaultfd object described by the fdinfo.
      First, the applications that were using userfault will still see zero at
      the features field in fdinfo.  Next, reporting actual features rather
      than available features, gives clear indication of what userfault
      features are used by an application.

      mm: fix page_vma_mapped_walk() for ksm pages · d75450ff
      Hugh Dickins authored
      Doug Smythies reports oops with KSM in this backtrace, I've been seeing
      the same:
      Just as observed in commit 4b0ece6f ("mm: migrate: fix
      remove_migration_pte() for ksm pages"), you cannot use page->index
      calculations on ksm pages.
      page_vma_mapped_walk() is relying on __vma_address(), where a ksm page
      can lead it off the end of the page table, and into whatever nonsense is
      in the next page, ending as an oops inside check_pte()'s pte_page().
      KSM tells page_vma_mapped_walk() exactly where to look for the page, it
      does not need any page->index calculation: and that's so also for all
      the normal and file and anon pages - just not for THPs and their
      subpages.  Get out early in most cases: instead of a PageKsm test, move
      down the earlier not-THP-page test, as suggested by Kirill.
      I'm also slightly worried that this loop can stray into other vmas, so
      added a vm_end test to prevent surprises; though I have not imagined
      anything worse than a very contrived case, in which a page mlocked in
      the next vma might be reclaimed because it is not mlocked in this vma.

      orangefs: move features validation to fix filesystem hang · cefdc26e
      Martin Brandenburg authored
      Without this fix (and another to the userspace component itself
      described later), the kernel will be unable to process any OrangeFS
      requests after the userspace component is restarted (due to a crash or
      at the administrator's behest).
      The bug here is that inside orangefs_remount, the orangefs_request_mutex
      is locked.  When the userspace component restarts while the filesystem
      is mounted, it sends a ORANGEFS_DEV_REMOUNT_ALL ioctl to the device,
      which causes the kernel to send it a few requests aimed at synchronizing
      the state between the two.  While this is happening the
      orangefs_request_mutex is locked to prevent any other requests going
      This is only half of the bugfix.  The other half is in the userspace
      component which outright ignores(!) requests made before it considers
      the filesystem remounted, which is after the ioctl returns.  Of course
      the ioctl doesn't return until after the userspace component responds to
      the request it ignores.  The userspace component has been changed to
      allow ORANGEFS_VFS_OP_FEATURES regardless of the mount status.
      Mike Marshall says:
       "I've tested this patch against the fixed userspace part. This patch is
        real important, I hope it can make it into 4.11...
        Here's what happens when the userspace daemon is restarted, without

      scsi: Avoid that SCSI queues get stuck · 36e3cf27
      Bart Van Assche authored
      If a .queue_rq() function returns BLK_MQ_RQ_QUEUE_BUSY then the block
      driver that implements that function is responsible for rerunning the
      hardware queue once requests can be queued again successfully.
      commit 52d7f1b5 ("blk-mq: Avoid that requeueing starts stopped
      queues") removed the blk_mq_stop_hw_queue() call from scsi_queue_rq()
      for the BLK_MQ_RQ_QUEUE_BUSY case. Hence change all calls to functions
      that are intended to rerun a busy queue such that these examine all
      hardware queues instead of only stopped queues.
      Since no other functions than scsi_internal_device_block() and
      scsi_internal_device_unblock() should ever stop or restart a SCSI
      queue, change the blk_mq_delay_queue() call into a
      blk_mq_delay_run_hw_queue() call.

      Pull ACPI fix from Rafael Wysocki:
       "This fixes a core device enumeration code change made in 4.10, in
        order to address a reported issue, that went too far.
         - Refine the check for the existence of _HID in find_child_checks()
           so that it doesn't trigger for device objects with device IDs made
           up by the kernel (Rafael Wysocki)"
