dmitry pervushin - April 29, 2009, 3:29 p.m.
UBI volume notifications are intended to create the API to get clients
notified about volume creation/deletion, renaming and changing(actually,
resizing). A client can subscribe to these notifications using
ubi_volume_register and cancel the subscription using
ubi_volume_unregister. When UBI volume change occurs, the atomic
notifier will be called. Client also can request "added" event on all
volumes that existed before client subscribed to the notifications.

Using notifications instead of calling functions ubi_gluebi_xxx allows
MTD emulation layer to be more flexible; say, now is it possible to
build it as a module and load/unload it on demand.

Thanks Artem Bityutskiy for reviewing the patch and many very valuable
comments.

The locking is still screwed. I do not think the code will work
when enumeration races with volume creation/deletion etc,
or when it races with device detach. And I do not think the
subscribers will get sensible sequence of events in this
case.

The right solution would be to re-work locking, and use mutexes
instead of this (not very sane) "exlusive" flag.

Roughly, I believe there should be 2 mutexes:

1. global "devices mutex" - locked when whole MTD device is
   attached/detached.
2. per-UBI device "device mutex" - locked when volumes belonging
   to this device are created/removed/resized/renamed.

And this "exlusive" open mode should go away.

I'll see what I can do. I'll try to prepare new locking
for you. Will let you know.

OK. For this we have ubi_devices_mutex. If you take it,
you prevent UBI devices from being created/removed. So
you do not need the references here, just take the mutex.

Something similar should be done for volume, I'm looking
at this.

You take the rwsem here. Then:
'ubi_enum_all_volumes()' ->
'ubi_enum_volumes()' ->
'blocking_notifier_call_chain()' ->
'blocking_notifier_call_chain()'

and down_read(&nh->rwsem);

Deadlock. Have you tested your code?
Artem Bityutskiy - May 18, 2009, 3:22 p.m.
Dmitry,

I've re-work the first patch of yours. I think the locking should
be correct now. The commit message shortly list the changes I've
done.

I also send the second patch. The only thing I fixed there was
the spelling of your name - I made it start with a capital letter.
I hope you do not mind.

Please, provide the third patch. You should not try to open an
UBI volume from within a notifier, because it won't work. I
think you simply did not test your patches before sending.
Neither did I. But please, this time, do test the patches.
It is very easy to do with nansim.

I'll send the patches as 2 follow-up e-mail for your review.

I've also created an "experimental" branch in the ubi-2.6.git
tree for your convenience:
