Hello Arnd,

We regularly compile and test Linux kernels every day during the merge 
window. Since Thursday last week we have very high CPU usage because of 
the avahi daemon on our desktop Linux systems (Ubuntu, Debian etc). The 
avahi daemon produces a lot of the following log message. This generates 
high CPU usage.

Error message: avahi-daemon[2410]: ioctl(): Inappropriate ioctl for device

strace /usr/sbin/avahi-daemon:

poll([{fd=4, events=POLLIN}, {fd=16, events=POLLIN}, {fd=15, 
events=POLLIN}, {fd=14, events=POLLIN}, {fd=13, events=POLLIN}, {fd=12, 
events=POLLIN}, {fd=11, events=POLLIN}, {fd=10, events=POLLIN}, {fd=9, 
events=POLLIN}, {fd=8, events=POLLIN}, {fd=6, events=POLLIN}], 11, 65) = 
2 ([{fd=12, revents=POLLIN}, {fd=9, revents=POLLIN}])
ioctl(12, FIONREAD, 0xffba6f24)         = -1 ENOTTY (Inappropriate ioctl 
for device)
write(2, "ioctl(): Inappropriate ioctl for"..., 39ioctl(): Inappropriate 
ioctl for device) = 39
write(2, "\n", 1
)                       = 1

----------------------

I bisected the latest kernel source code today.

Result:

77b9040195dea3fcddf19e136c9e99a501351778 is the first bad commit
commit 77b9040195dea3fcddf19e136c9e99a501351778
Author: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@arndb.de>
Date:   Wed Nov 27 21:25:36 2019 +0100

     compat_ioctl: simplify the implementation

     Now that both native and compat ioctl syscalls are
     in the same file, a couple of simplifications can
     be made, bringing the implementation closer together:

     - do_vfs_ioctl(), ioctl_preallocate(), and compat_ioctl_preallocate()
       can become static, allowing the compiler to optimize better

     - slightly update the coding style for consistency between
       the functions.

     - rather than listing each command in two switch statements
       for the compat case, just call a single function that has
       all the common commands.

     As a side-effect, FS_IOC_RESVSP/FS_IOC_RESVSP64 are now available
     to x86 compat tasks, along with FS_IOC_RESVSP_32/FS_IOC_RESVSP64_32.
     This is harmless for i386 emulation, and can be considered a bugfix
     for x32 emulation, which never supported these in the past.

I was able to revert the first bad commit.

  4 files changed, 105 insertions(+), 64 deletions(-)

After that the avahi daemon works without any problems again.

I created a patch today. (attached)

It is also possible to deactivate the avahi daemon with the following lines
in the file "/etc/avahi/avahi-daemon.conf":

use-ipv4=no
use-ipv6=no

Could you please check your commit?

Thanks,
Christian

Thanks a lot for the detailed analysis, with this I immediately saw
what went wrong in my
original commit and I sent you a fix. Please test to ensure that this
correctly addresses
the problem.

Hi Arnd,

Thanks a lot for your patch! I will test it as soon as possible.

Hi Arnd,

I successfully compiled the latest Git kernel with your patch today. The 
avahi daemon works fine now. That means your patch has solved the avahi 
issue.

Thanks for your patch and have a nice weekend!

Cheers,
Christian
