9 years 7 months rmap: add exclusively owned pages to the newest anon_vma

The recent anon_vma fixes cause many anonymous pages to end up
in the parent process anon_vma, even when the page is exclusively
owned by the current process.

Adding exclusively owned anonymous pages to the top anon_vma
reduces rmap scanning overhead, especially in workloads with
forking servers.

This patch adds a parameter to __page_set_anon_rmap that can
be used to indicate whether or not the added page is exclusively
owned by the current process.

Pages added through page_add_new_anon_rmap are exclusively
owned by the current process, and can be added to the top
anon_vma.

Pages added through page_add_anon_rmap can be either shared
or exclusively owned, so we do the conservative thing and
add it to the oldest anon_vma.

A next step would be to add the exclusive parameter to
page_add_anon_rmap, to be used from functions where we do
know for sure whether a page is exclusively owned.

9 years 8 months eCryptfs: Turn lower lookup error messages into debug messages

Vaugue warnings about ENAMETOOLONG errors when looking up an encrypted
file name have caused many users to become concerned about their data.
Since this is a rather harmless condition, I'm moving this warning to
only be printed when the ecryptfs_verbosity module param is 1.

9 years 8 months eCryptfs: Copy lower directory inode times and size on link

The timestamps and size of a lower inode involved in a link() call was
being copied to the upper parent inode. Instead, we should be
copying lower parent inode's timestamps and size to the upper parent
inode. I discovered this bug using the POSIX test suite at Tuxera.

9 years 8 months ecryptfs: fix use with tmpfs by removing d_drop from ecryptfs_destroy_inode

Since tmpfs has no persistent storage, it pins all its dentries in memory
so they have d_count=1 when other file systems would have d_count=0.
->lookup is only used to create new dentries. If the caller doesn't
instantiate it, it's freed immediately at dput(). ->readdir reads
directly from the dcache and depends on the dentries being hashed.

When an ecryptfs mount is mounted, it associates the lower file and dentry
with the ecryptfs files as they're accessed. When it's umounted and
destroys all the in-memory ecryptfs inodes, it fput's the lower_files and
d_drop's the lower_dentries. Commit 4981e081 added this and a d_delete in
2008 and several months later commit caeeeecf removed the d_delete. I
believe the d_drop() needs to be removed as well.

The d_drop effectively hides any file that has been accessed via ecryptfs
from the underlying tmpfs since it depends on it being hashed for it to
be accessible. I've removed the d_drop on my development node and see no
ill effects with basic testing on both tmpfs and persistent storage.

As a side effect, after ecryptfs d_drops the dentries on tmpfs, tmpfs
BUGs on umount. This is due to the dentries being unhashed.
tmpfs->kill_sb is kill_litter_super which calls d_genocide to drop
the reference pinning the dentry. It skips unhashed and negative dentries,
but shrink_dcache_for_umount_subtree doesn't. Since those dentries
still have an elevated d_count, we get a BUG().

This patch removes the d_drop call and fixes both issues.

9 years 8 months ecryptfs: fix error code for missing xattrs in lower fs

If the lower file system driver has extended attributes disabled,
ecryptfs' own access functions return -ENOSYS instead of -EOPNOTSUPP.
This breaks execution of programs in the ecryptfs mount, since the
kernel expects the latter error when checking for security
capabilities in xattrs.

9 years 8 months eCryptfs: Decrypt symlink target for stat size

Create a getattr handler for eCryptfs symlinks that is capable of
reading the lower target and decrypting its path. Prior to this patch,
a stat's st_size field would represent the strlen of the encrypted path,
while readlink() would return the strlen of the decrypted path. This
could lead to confusion in some userspace applications, since the two
values should be equal.

9 years 7 months rcu: Make RCU lockdep check the lockdep_recursion variable

The lockdep facility temporarily disables lockdep checking by
incrementing the current->lockdep_recursion variable. Such
disabling happens in NMIs and in other situations where lockdep
might expect to recurse on itself.

This patch therefore checks current->lockdep_recursion, disabling RCU
lockdep splats when this variable is non-zero. In addition, this patch
removes the "likely()", as suggested by Lai Jiangshan.
