      timers: Add a function to start/reduce a timer · b24591e2
      David Howells authored
      Add a function, similar to mod_timer(), that will start a timer if it isn't
      running and will modify it if it is running and has an expiry time longer
      than the new time.  If the timer is running with an expiry time that's the
      same or sooner, no change is made.
      The function looks like:
      	int timer_reduce(struct timer_list *timer, unsigned long expires);
      This can be used by code such as networking code to make it easier to share
      a timer for multiple timeouts.  For instance, in upcoming AF_RXRPC code,
      the rxrpc_call struct will maintain a number of timeouts:
      	unsigned long	ack_at;
      	unsigned long	resend_at;
      	unsigned long	ping_at;
      	unsigned long	expect_rx_by;
      	unsigned long	expect_req_by;
      	unsigned long	expect_term_by;
      each of which is set independently of the others.  With timer reduction
      available, when the code needs to set one of the timeouts, it only needs to
      look at that timeout and then call timer_reduce() to modify the timer,
      starting it or bringing it forward if necessary.  There is no need to refer
      to the other timeouts to see which is earliest and no need to take any lock
      other than, potentially, the timer lock inside timer_reduce().
      Note, that this does not protect against concurrent invocations of any of
      the timer functions.
      As an example, the expect_rx_by timeout above, which terminates a call if
      we don't get a packet from the server within a certain time window, would
      be set something like this:
      	unsigned long now = jiffies;
      	unsigned long expect_rx_by = now + packet_receive_timeout;
      	WRITE_ONCE(call->expect_rx_by, expect_rx_by);
      	timer_reduce(&call->timer, expect_rx_by);
      The timer service code (which might, say, be in a work function) would then
      check all the timeouts to see which, if any, had triggered, deal with
      	t = READ_ONCE(call->ack_at);
      	if (time_after_eq(now, t)) {
      		cmpxchg(&call->ack_at, t, now + MAX_JIFFY_OFFSET);
      		set_bit(RXRPC_CALL_EV_ACK, &call->events);
      and then restart the timer if necessary by finding the soonest timeout that
      hasn't yet passed and then calling timer_reduce().
      The disadvantage of doing things this way rather than comparing the timers
      each time and calling mod_timer() is that you *will* take timer events
      unless you can finish what you're doing and delete the timer in time.
      The advantage of doing things this way is that you don't need to use a lock
      to work out when the next timer should be set, other than the timer's own
      lock - which you might not have to take.

      HID: wacom: generic: Send BTN_STYLUS3 when both barrel switches are set · 9e429d56
      Jason Gerecke authored
      The Wacom Pro Pen 3D includes a third barrel switch which is intended to
      be particularly useful in applications where one frequency uses pan, zoom,
      and rotate to navigate around a scene or model. The pen is compatible with
      the MobileStudio Pro, 2nd-gen Intuos Pro, and Cintiq Pro. When the third
      button is pressed, these devices set both the HID_DG_BARRELSWITCH and
      HID_DG_BARRELSWITCH2 usages since their HID descriptors do not include a
      usage specific to the button.
      Rather than send both BTN_STYLUS and BTN_STYLUS2 when the third button is
      pressed, userspace (libinput) has requested that we detect this condition
      and report a newly-defined BTN_STYLUS3 event instead. We could define a
      quirk specific to devices compatible with the Pro Pen 3D, but the liklihood
      of seeing both barrel switch bits set with other pens/devices is low enough
      to not worry about (pens mechanically prevent accidental activation of
      multiple switches).

      net_sched: introduce tcf_exts_get_net() and tcf_exts_put_net() · e4b95c41
      Cong Wang authored
      Instead of holding netns refcnt in tc actions, we can minimize
      the holding time by saving it in struct tcf_exts instead. This
      means we can just hold netns refcnt right before call_rcu() and
      release it after tcf_exts_destroy() is done.
      However, because on netns cleanup path we call tcf_proto_destroy()
      too, obviously we can not hold netns for a zero refcnt, in this
      case we have to do cleanup synchronously. It is fine for RCU too,
      the caller cleanup_net() already waits for a grace period.
      For other cases, refcnt is non-zero and we can safely grab it as
      normal and release it after we are done.
      This patch provides two new API for each filter to use:
      tcf_exts_get_net() and tcf_exts_put_net(). And all filters now can
      use the following pattern:
      void __destroy_filter() {
        tcf_exts_put_net();  // <== release netns refcnt
      void some_work() {
      void some_rcu_callback() {
      if (tcf_exts_get_net())  // <== hold netns refcnt

      Revert "net_sched: hold netns refcnt for each action" · c7e460ce
      Cong Wang authored
      This reverts commit ceffcc5e
      If we hold that refcnt, the netns can never be destroyed until
      all actions are destroyed by user, this breaks our netns design
      which we expect all actions are destroyed when we destroy the
      whole netns.
