      mm/swap: don't BUG_ON() due to uninitialized swap slot cache · 452b94b8
      Linus Torvalds authored
      This BUG_ON() triggered for me once at shutdown, and I don't see a
      reason for the check.  The code correctly checks whether the swap slot
      cache is usable or not, so an uninitialized swap slot cache is not
      actually problematic afaik.
      I've temporarily just switched the BUG_ON() to a WARN_ON_ONCE(), since
      I'm not sure why that seemingly pointless check was there.  I suspect
      the real fix is to just remove it entirely, but for now we'll warn about
      it but not bring the machine down.

      tcmu: Convert cmd_time_out into backend device attribute · 7d7a7435
      Nicholas Bellinger authored
      Instead of putting cmd_time_out under ../target/core/user_0/foo/control,
      which has historically been used by parameters needed for initial
      backend device configuration, go ahead and move cmd_time_out into
      a backend device attribute.
      In order to do this, tcmu_module_init() has been updated to create
      a local struct configfs_attribute **tcmu_attrs, that is based upon
      the existing passthrough_attrib_attrs along with the new cmd_time_out
      attribute.  Once **tcm_attrs has been setup, go ahead and point
      it at tcmu_ops->tb_dev_attrib_attrs so it's picked up by target-core.
      Also following MNC's previous change, ->cmd_time_out is stored in
      milliseconds but exposed via configfs in seconds.  Also, note this
      patch restricts the modification of ->cmd_time_out to before +
      after the TCMU device has been configured, but not while it has
      active fabric exports.

      tcmu: make cmd timeout configurable · af980e46
      Mike Christie authored
      A single daemon could implement multiple types of devices
      using multuple types of real devices that may not support
      restarting from crashes and/or handling tcmu timeouts. This
      makes the cmd timeout configurable, so handlers that do not
      support it can turn if off for now.

      target: fix race during implicit transition work flushes · 760bf578
      Mike Christie authored
      This fixes the following races:
      1. core_alua_do_transition_tg_pt could have read
      tg_pt_gp_alua_access_state and gone into this if chunk:
      if (!explicit &&
              atomic_read(&tg_pt_gp->tg_pt_gp_alua_access_state) ==
      and then core_alua_do_transition_tg_pt_work could update the
      state. core_alua_do_transition_tg_pt would then only set
      tg_pt_gp_alua_pending_state and the tg_pt_gp_alua_access_state would
      not get updated with the second calls state.
      2. core_alua_do_transition_tg_pt could be setting
      tg_pt_gp_transition_complete while the tg_pt_gp_transition_work
      is already completing. core_alua_do_transition_tg_pt then waits on the
      completion that will never be called.
      To handle these issues, we just call flush_work which will return when
      core_alua_do_transition_tg_pt_work has completed so there is no need
      to do the complete/wait. And, if core_alua_do_transition_tg_pt_work
      was running, instead of trying to sneak in the state change, we just
      schedule up another core_alua_do_transition_tg_pt_work call.
      Note that this does not handle a possible race where there are multiple
      threads call core_alua_do_transition_tg_pt at the same time. I think
      we need a mutex in target_tg_pt_gp_alua_access_state_store.

      Userspace target_core_user handlers like tcmu-runner may want to set the

      target: fix ALUA transition timeout handling · d7175373
      Mike Christie authored
      The implicit transition time tells initiators the min time
      to wait before timing out a transition. We currently schedule
      the transition to occur in tg_pt_gp_implicit_trans_secs
      seconds so there is no room for delays. If
      needs to write out info to a remote file, then the initiator can
      easily time out the operation.

      target: Use system workqueue for ALUA transitions · 207ee841
      Mike Christie authored
      If tcmu-runner is processing a STPG and needs to change the kernel's
      ALUA state then we cannot use the same work queue for task management
      requests and ALUA transitions, because we could deadlock. The problem
      occurs when a STPG times out before tcmu-runner is able to
      call into target_tg_pt_gp_alua_access_state_store->
      core_alua_do_port_transition -> core_alua_do_transition_tg_pt ->
      queue_work. In this case, the tmr is on the work queue waiting for
      the STPG to complete, but the STPG transition is now queued behind
      the waiting tmr.
      This bug will also be fixed by this patch:
      which switches the tmr code to use the system workqueues.
      For both, I am not sure if we need a dedicated workqueue since
      it is not a performance path and I do not think we need WQ_MEM_RECLAIM
      to make forward progress to free up memory like the block layer does.

      target: allow ALUA setup for some passthrough backends · 530c6891
      Mike Christie authored
      This patch allows passthrough backends to use the core/base LIO
      ALUA setup and state checks, but still handle the execution of
      This will allow the target_core_user module to execute STPG and RTPG
      in userspace, and not have to duplicate the ALUA state checks, path
      information (needed so we can check if command is executable on
      specific paths) and setup (rtslib sets/updates the configfs ALUA
      interface like it does for iblock or file).
      For STPG, the target_core_user userspace daemon, tcmu-runner will
      still execute the STPG, and to update the core/base LIO state it
      will use the existing configfs interface. For RTPG, tcmu-runner
      will loop over configfs and/or cache the state.
