Subject[2.6-BK-URL] NTFS 2.1.22 - Bug and race fixes and improved error handling.
Date
Hi Linus, Hi Andrew, please do a

bk pull bk://linux-ntfs.bkbits.net/ntfs-2.6

This fixes lots of bugs and races and improves error handling and in
particular handling of volumes with errors. This fixes all known bugs
with the ntfs driver.

Please apply. Thanks!

For the benefit of non-BK users and to make code review easier, I am
sending each ChangeSet in a separate email as a diff -u style patch.

Best regards,

Anton

<aia21@cantab.net> (04/10/25 1.2026.1.20)

instead of void and provide a helper ntfs_truncate_vfs() for the
vfs ->truncate method.
- Add a new ntfs inode flag NInoTruncateFailed() and modify
fs/ntfs/inode.c::ntfs_truncate() to set and clear it appropriately.

NTFS: Add attribute definition handling helpers to fs/ntfs/attrib.[hc]:
ntfs_attr_size_bounds_check(), ntfs_attr_can_be_non_resident(), and
ntfs_attr_can_be_resident(), which in turn use the new private helper
ntfs_attr_find_in_attrdef().

NTFS: In fs/ntfs/aops.c::mark_ntfs_record_dirty(), take the
mapping->private_lock around the dirtying of the buffer heads
analagous to the way it is done in __set_page_dirty_buffers().

mount time as this cannot work with the current implementation.

<aia21@cantab.net> (04/10/27 1.2026.1.32)

<aia21@cantab.net> (04/10/28 1.2026.1.35)
NTFS: In fs/ntfs/aops.c::ntfs_writepage(), if t he page is fully outside
i_size, i.e. race with truncate, invalidate the buffers on the page
so that they become freeable and hence the page does not leak.

<aia21@cantab.net> (04/10/28 1.2026.1.36)
NTFS: Implement extension of resident files in the regular file write code
paths (fs/ntfs/aops.c::ntfs_{prepare,commit}_write()). At present
this only works until the data attribute becomes too big for the mft
record after which we abort the write returning -EOPNOTSUPP from
ntfs_prepare_write().

<aia21@cantab.net> (04/11/03 1.2026.1.50)
NTFS: Modify fs/ntfs/aops.c::mark_ntfs_record_dirty() so it allocates
buffers for the page if they are not present and then marks the
buffers belonging to the ntfs record dirty. This causes the buffers
to become busy and hence they are safe from removal until the page
has been written out.

<aia21@cantab.net> (04/11/04 1.2026.1.52)
NTFS: Fix stupid bug in fs/ntfs/attrib.c::ntfs_external_attr_find() in the
error handling code path that resulted in a BUG() due to trying to
unmap an extent mft record when the mapping of it had failed and it
thus was not mapped. (Thanks to Ken MacFerrin for the bug report.)

<aia21@cantab.net> (04/11/05 1.2026.1.54)
NTFS: Rewrite handling of multi sector transfer errors. We now do not set
PageError() when such errors are detected in the async i/o handler fs/ntfs/aops.c::ntfs_end_buffer_async_read(). All users of mst protected attributes now check the magic of each ntfs record as they use it and act appropriately. This has the effect of making errors
granular per ntfs record rather than per page which solves the case
where we cannot access any of the ntfs records in a page when a
single one of them had an mst error. (Thanks to Ken MacFerrin for
the bug report.)

<aia21@cantab.net> (04/11/09 1.2026.1.63)
NTFS: - Add mapping of unmapped buffers to all remaining code paths, i.e.
fs/ntfs/aops.c::ntfs_write_mst_block(), mft.c::ntfs_sync_mft_mirror(),
and write_mft_record_nolock(). From now on we require that the
complete runlist for the mft mirror is always mapped into memory.
- Add creation of buffers to fs/ntfs/mft.c::ntfs_sync_mft_mirror().
- Do not check for the page being uptodate in mark_ntfs_record_dirty()
as we now call this after marking the page not uptodate during mft
mirror synchronisation (fs/ntfs/mft.c::ntfs_sync_mft_mirror()).
- Improve error handling in fs/ntfs/aops.c::ntfs_{read,write}_block().

<aia21@cantab.net> (04/11/09 1.2026.1.64)
NTFS: - Fix creation of buffers in fs/ntfs/mft.c::ntfs_sync_mft_mirror().
Cannot just call fs/ntfs/aops.c::mark_ntfs_record_dirty() since
this also marks the page dirty so we create the buffers by hand
and set them uptodate.
- Revert the removal of the page uptodate check from
fs/ntfs/aops.c::mark_ntfs_record_dirty() as it is no longer called
from fs/ntfs/mft.c::ntfs_sync_mft_mirror().

<aia21@cantab.net> (04/11/09 1.2026.1.65)
NTFS: Disable the file size changing code from
fs/ntfs/aops.c::ntfs_prepare_write() for now as it is not safe.

<aia21@cantab.net> (04/11/10 1.2026.1.66)
NTFS: 2.1.22 - Many bug and race fixes and error handling improvements.

- Cleanup fs/ntfs/aops.c::ntfs_{read,write}page() since we know that a
resident attribute will be smaller than a page which makes the code
simpler. Also make the code more tolerant to concurrent ->truncate.
