Hello list,


People collect stamps, etc. and I do patches. It is April 01, but let ye 
know that even the patch that would get the most naks is not really 
meant as an April joke.
Most of them are independent, but I'll let `quilt graph` judge their 
dependencies.

	[02/] vt-pure-colors.diff
	[03/] vt-underline-color.diff
	[04/] vt-printk-color.diff

	[14/] kconfig-allow-override.diff
	[15/] use-regular-eth-suffix.diff

(`quilt graph` says the order of the vt-* ones is important.)

Allow for the palette to be exposed and changed via sysfs. A call to
/usr/bin/reset will slurp the new definitions in for the current
console.

Have the Linux kernel set a new VGA palette for the first 16 colors.
The new values reduce the saturation (white component) and therefore
increase contrast.

Add color support to the "underline" and "italic" attributes as in
OpenBSD/NetBSD-style (vt220) and xterm.

Colored kernel message output

Gives kernel messages on the console an OpenBSD-esque color to distinguish
them from regular tty (as long as that's not colored too) text.

Inspired by cko (iirc http://freshmeat.net/p/cko/), but better
implementation done by myself (handles newlines correctly).

Fix kevent's childs priority greedy-ness. Such tasks were always scheduled
at nice level -5 and, at that time, udev stole us the CPU time with -5.

Add %S_IWUGO bit for isofs. Makes it easier to poke on files after
they have been copied from an ISO-9660 filesystem because they are
ofte copied in `cp -p` or perhaps `rsync -p` mode.
They are still not writable though, and isofs will continue to
correctly return -EROFS for writes.

Shows some stars during decompression. This is particularly useful on 
old 386s where one asterisk is probably printed every second - making 
the long linux and initramfs uncompress progress more evident.

Not compile tested outside {i386, x86_64} - don't have other machines.

Display all possible partitions when the root filesystem is not mounted.
This helps to track spell'o's and missing drivers.

Verbatim copy of original mail:

*>>>
>From http://lkml.org/lkml/2006/9/2/86

The recent change to "allow Windows blocking locks to be cancelled
via a CANCEL_LOCK call" introduced a new semaphore in struct
cifsFileInfo, lock_sem.  However, semaphores used as mutexes are
deprecated these days, and there's no reason to add a new one to the
kernel. Therefore, convert lock_sem to a struct mutex (and also fix
one indentation glitch on one of the lines changed anyway).

Compile tested only, since I don't use CIFS.

My 2¢:
Compile tested. Runtime tested. Did not break.

Allow config variables in .config to override earlier ones in the same
file. In other words,

	# CONFIG_SECURITY is not defined
	CONFIG_SECURITY=y

will activate it. This makes it a bit easier to do

	(cat original-config myconfig myconfig2 ... >.config)

and run menuconfig as expected.

Some radio adapter drivers wrongly(?) name their devices "wlan%d"
instead of "eth%d" (if you ask me, it should be %u - but not today).

Technically, they operate like Ethernet, and in fact, running
`/sbin/ip a` shows "link/ether" instead of "link/ieee80211".
This patch renames them back, but I would appreciate some comment,
explanation or at least link why they actually have wlan%d there.

Instead of that, what about something like this instead:  NOTE: I  
know my mailer mangles diffs and this one was hand-edited based on  
Jan's diff from within my mailer so it probably doesn't apply, but  
it's enough to point out the idea:

While the patch seems fine, this comment is not correct.  The patch is 
decreasing the *brightness* in order to *increase* saturation. 
Saturation[1] is the deepness of a color, not the white component 
(brightness, lightness).

NACK.  This has the potential to significantly break backwards- 
compatibility for users of those cards who are not using udev to  
maintain consistent device naming (because they only have a single  
card, for example).  I would recommend against applying it for that  
reason.

People always come up with new complexities I never thought kconfig
would be able to do. Nice stuff. I'll take up on your idea and
incorporate it right away.

But I would have to ask: Why do we need 100/250/300/1000 if there is
anyway an input field for the user to enter - s/he should read the
help text for Known Good values, should not s/he?

Actually, probably what should be done is make the "HZ_CUSTOM" option  
depend on EXPERIMENTAL/ 
EMBEDDED/"EXPERT"/"I_KNOW_WHAT_THE_HELL_IM_DOING" or some other  
equivalent option, because a wrong choice for HZ has the potential to  
really screw up a system.  For example, 10000+ would make most  
systems spend a significant portion of their time processing timer  
interrupts and context switches, and less than 100 or so would make  
the system seem jerky.  The point is to encourage the average kernel  
builder not to change from one of the default options unless they  
really know what they're doing.

Cheers,
Kyle Moffett

EXPERIMENTAL is most often enabled by distributors.
And we are still missing our much-needed CONFIG_EXPERT :-(

Point taken. Ehm, I already once tried making a 10000-Hz kernel
around 2.6.13-15 or so. It did not compile because some header files had
#error directives for HZ >= 1536. (jiffies.h:33 if you want
to know.) IIRC there also was another place somewhere in networking
code that #errors out at >8192.

I had to stop and think if this was an April 1st :)
Back in 2005 it seemed I had a strong enough stomach
to wade through smbfs for some unknown reason.
These days like many others, I wish someone would
just put the thing out of its misery.

In Fedora we switched it off (in about 2005 iirc)
in favor of using cifs, which for the most part
is a drop-in replacement.  There still remain 1-2
corner cases where it doesn't work iirc, but
the situation is a lot better than it used to be.

As to whether the patch is worthwhile/correct..
I really don't know.  I posted it back then in the hopes
that someone smbfs-savvy would pop up and review it.
As you can see from the archive, no-one did.

	Dave

It seems to have been resent once, 7 days after you:
	http://lkml.org/lkml/2005/7/15/231

At that time, I had experienced strange copy failures ("No such file or 
directory") while the directory being copied was not modified. With the 
patch, I at least got EINTR instead of ENOENT, which I think made cp 
think once more to retry.

Hmm, with no changelog. I wonder if JA was hitting that bug
and independantly came up with that patch, or was just
resubmitting on my behalf.

I suppose we could throw it in -mm and see if anyone screams. Andrew?

Ah, good point, but I think it fits.

Well, we've had problems in the past where people turn on options  
under CONFIG_EXPERIMENTAL or CONFIG_EMBEDDED and it breaks in exactly  
the specified fashion and they complain on LKML.  The point of this  
is to expose kconfig tunables which a "normal" kconfig user would get  
wrong 99% of the time and would break in obscure ways.  For example,  
the "CONFIG_MULTITHREAD_PCI_PROBE" option, if it was re-added for  
more tinkering, could go under this option.

Ah, see, due to the magic of kconfig language this does not show up  
as a separate option (no text for the "bool") identifier.  It's just  
an alias for I_KNOW_WHAT_THE_HELL_I_AM_DOING to make it easier to use  
in other Kconfig files ("depends EXPERT && SOME_OPTION!=n &&  
ANOTHER_OPTION") instead of s/EXPERT/I_KNOW_WHAT_THE_HELL_I_AM_DOING/g.

conversely, if someone truly wants to set a kernel config option to
some outrageous value, they should have that freedom.  it's called
"playing."

When you know what you're doing you can just patch then Kconfig files.
IMHO that's better than this.

The address may look like wired Ethernet (both are based on IEEE 802
standards), but IEEE 802.11 does not behave like IEEE 802.3. For
example, one cannot send frames with a foreign source address in client
mode when using IEEE 802.11 which is clearly different from wired
Ethernet. IEEE 802.11 interfaces (in client mode) cannot be bridged at
layer 2 in the same way as wired Ethernet interfaces could.

Renames _back_? No it doesn't. Host AP driver has never used eth%d as
the interface name template

NAK. Host AP driver has been using wlan%d for close to seven years and I
see no reason to change it now. This will just cause problems for users.
If someone wants to rename the interface to something else, they can do
it with number of different ways from user space. The kernel default
should not be changed at this point.

ug.  It's better to include the names of the parameters, IMO.  But mixing
the two styles like this is nuts.

Happily, the declaration is unneeded anyway, so I'll just delete it.

It would be nice to include a sample of the resulting output for people
to review.

This can return -EINTR if timeleft == 0 && !signal_pending(), which seems
wrong.

Is this useful?  It seems rather an obscure thing, and we generally need a
good reason to go adding Linux-specific goodies to standard system calls
like this.  What do "other operating systems" do here?

That's a bit fugly.

That's wildly incorrect coding style, and it doesn't use tabs.

I'm not sure that it's a big enough problem to go adding code for, really.

Other OS seem to always show 0, as Linux does usually. So I do not think
programs actually rely on it having any specific value.
I thought adding pipesize might be helpful in dianosing pipe cases, akin to
Miklos's procfs-fdinfo patch for regular files.

Which means I something really went wrong, because I knew I went through it for
cleanup.

Not too sure about this, the default palette is based on ANSI/ECMA
standards (at least for the first 8 colors). Also, this will have subtle
effects on the 16-color logo. Since your first patch already allows us
to change the palette, let's leave the default alone.

I like this. The escape sequences to change the palette does not stay
permanently.

No, not really. If there are any kthread spawners that do exceed the limit,
I would have probably gotten a message by now over the last handful of kernel
releases. So everything seems clear.

The italic attribute is indeed part of ANSI standard, though not widely
implemented. Fbcon (monochrome mode) already supports inverse,
underline, and bold. I'll try to implement italics (if I can) too if
this gets in.

Seems reasonable.
I have done some additional cleanups, see patch below.

Loaded with PXELINUX...

	LABEL l
		KERNEL bzImage
		APPEND root=/dev/foobar

or root=/dev/sdb both produce:

[...]
VFS: Cannot open root device "foobar" or unknown-block(0,0)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option; here are the available partitions:

Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)

With root=/dev/sdb, the list of possible filesystems is also displayed
(a patch that was merged a (long)while back).

Integrated __init annotation, and deindented the loop by one level.

Ok.
But to note: xterm and anything graphical (including MS Windows)
uses the anti-pale color (255,0,0) instead of (255,170,170).

As much as you like it, there is a slight problem with it. Linux will
currently throw virtual consoles out of UTF8 mode when reset is called.

Also see:
	http://lkml.org/lkml/2005/5/17/289
	http://lkml.org/lkml/2005/5/17/297

These posts argue about terminfo being the culprit. But how can terminfo 
be at fault, when `echo -en "\ec"` triggers it too?

Since I am in a patch mood, here's my stance/patch, which is compile and 
run tested and behaves as expected (both with `echo` and `reset`).

Actually, what threw me off was index 4 in default_blu, which has a
value of 0x90.  This looks weird to me, but I guess that is a typo. I
really have nothing against using 0, 0, 255 instead of 170, 170, 255 in
the intense version of the first 8.

That one is a psychological thing. :-) People like blue backgrounds, because a
green or red one would not really fit as a bg color for Midnight Commander,
pine and your-favorite-editor. So you choose blue because it fits nicely. (See
http://img81.imageshack.us/img81/8858/blueqj6.png for an example, and compare
with http://img81.imageshack.us/img81/7498/reddm1.png and
http://img142.imageshack.us/img142/8470/greennq2.png for counterexamples. Even
a bright blue (0,0,192) is still better than red/green, the reason being that
blue is much less percepted by the eye than green or red. You will find various
formulas on the 'net that will convert from color to grayscale - these formulas
have the 'perception' levels, which are, summarized, 76*r, 151*g, 26*b on a 255
scale.) Personally I find the regular blue (0,0,170/0xA0) a little too bright
so I turned it down to 0x90. Adjust for your preference.

Please dont do that, adding uggly tests in generic_fillattr()

The following patch does the right thing for pipes, I let you doing the same for sockets...

[PATCH] : fill the size of pipes

Instead of reporting 0 in size when stating() a pipe, we give the number of queued bytes. This might avoid using ioctl(FIONREAD) to get this information.

Is it OK to do that? I recall when I was originally looking at the code
I didn't want to just remove that line, because it looked like that was
being used to first initialise the vc* structure when it is created, as
well as reset it every time. Doesn't this leave vc->vc_utf uninitialised
when a new VC is allocated?

That's true.  We can move the line vc->vc_utf = 0; in vc_init()
instead.

While we're on that subject, did you take a look at my original mail?
The intent with that patch was to allow system policy to state all new
VCs are UTF-8-enabled by default. I feel that in 2007 this should be the
default setting.

Would it therefore be possible to have

   vc->vc_utf = some_default;

where some_default comes maybe from a sysctl or some other configurable
source? Or maybe even have a compiletime option?

This would get around many bugs. For example, on boot, "unicode_start"
can only set utf8 mode on the existing VCs 1 to 6. If X11 fails to
start, debian nicely runs me the XKeepsCrashing program, which offers to
show me logs and the like. It reads the locale, en_GB.UTF-8 and
determines we're in UTF-8 mode, so outputs Unicode linedrawing
characters for dialogs. Unfortunately, we're on VC7 which doesn't have
UTF-8 mode turned on, so much mess results.

It would be nice if the kernel's default UTF-8 mode for new VCs could be
synched to whatever local policy was regarding locale.

How about this? This should allow us to reset the terminal without
affecting utf, and also allows setting of a global utf default that can
be set via boot option or sysfs:

echo 1 > /sys/module/vt/parameters/default_utf

That's almost exactly what my suggestion was :)

(except that mine went into /proc/tty/vt/default_utf8_mode, but anywhere
is good really)

Might want to call it "default_utf8", but it's just minor.

Tony, if you have a patch, send it along so I can test it under "special local
circumstances" :-)

You are sure this wasn't meant as an April fools joke?  Passing the
address of an inline function certainly has a humorous aspect. ;)

Also, you can remove the "return;" in the void function and possibly
change this bit to match Documentation/CodingStyle.

> +    if(putstr != NULL) putstr("*");

The patch alternately uses puts() and putstr(), which looks rather odd.
Not sure whether that makes sense or not.

Should not reset actually reset terminal? This introduces
bug/unexpected behaviour...

It actually has use (for my 20 MHz 386 *hug*)

>Passing the address of an inline function certainly has a humorous aspect. ;)

You bet. Well, "inline" is, as far as I hear the voices of the C standard, just
a "hint" to the compiler that this function should be inlined. If it cannot do
that, well, then do not inline it. But you have a point, it gets interesting
when "inline" expands to __attribute__((always_inline)). Well, let's hope that
gcc 'carries the inlining over' into gunzip().

>Also, you can remove the "return;" in the void function and possibly

Yup.

>> +    if(putstr != NULL) putstr("*");

>The patch alternately uses puts() and putstr(), which looks rather odd.

It is because some arches seem to have a arch-specific "output function"
called puts() try the following:

$ grep -r 'puts(' arch/arm26/
(results)
$ grep -r 'puts(' arch/i386/
(no results)

So yes, I would need some advice what people were thinking here. If it
was not for this arch specific stuff, the putstr() function I added in
lib/ would also be gone and the "*" could be directly printed in
gunzip(), making the extra argument to gunzip superfluous.

The extra putstr() in init/initramfs.c [cf. putstr() in lib/inflate.c]
is also something I did not know how to really do better.

Thoughts are appreciated and stylofixed patch below.
(lib/inflate.c does not even use tabs, what could I possibly do more wrong than
already? :p)


---

Shows some stars during decompression. This is particularly useful on old 386s
where one asterisk is probably printed every second - making the long linux and
initramfs uncompress progress more evident.
Not compile tested outside {i386, x86_64} - don't have other machines.

Is struct sock->sk_receive_queue->qlen actually the thing I am
looking for? (Previously, I had struct sock->sk_rcvbuf, which was
obviously wrong.)

Thanks,

I suspect you will find unix_ioctl() in net/unix/af_unix.c ?

BTW, my patch only worked for pipes, not fifos. Ie pipe(), not 
open("/some/fifo.p", ...)

Thanks for your patch. There is a question however; why don't you do
  stat->size = pipe_size(inode);
in generic_fill_attr (perhaps wrapped into an if(S_ISFIFO))?

Jan
