Shawn O. Pearce [Wed, 25 Apr 2007 08:02:27 +0000 (04:02 -0400)]
Actually handle some-low memory conditions

Tim Ansell discovered his Debian server didn't permit git-daemon to
use as much memory as it needed to handle cloning a project with
a 128 MiB packfile.  Filtering the strace provided by Tim of the
rev-list child showed this gem of a sequence:

  open("./objects/pack/pack-*.pack", O_RDONLY|O_LARGEFILE <unfinished ...>
  <... open resumed> )              = 5

OK, so the packfile is fd 5...

  mmap2(NULL, 33554432, PROT_READ, MAP_PRIVATE, 5, 0 <unfinished ...>
   <... mmap2 resumed> )             = 0xb5e2d000

and we mapped one 32 MiB window from it at position 0...

   mmap2(NULL, 31020635, PROT_READ, MAP_PRIVATE, 5, 0x6000 <unfinished ...>
   <... mmap2 resumed> )             = -1 ENOMEM (Cannot allocate memory)

And we asked for another window further into the file.  But got
denied.  In Tim's case this was due to a resource limit on the
git-daemon process, and its children.

Now where are we in the code?  We're down inside use_pack(),
after we have called unuse_one_window() enough times to make sure
we stay within our allowed maximum window size.  However since we
didn't unmap the prior window at 0xb5e2d000 we aren't exceeding
the current limit (which probably was just the defaults).

But we're actually down inside xmmap()...

So we release the window we do have (by calling release_pack_memory),
assuming there is some memory pressure...

   munmap(0xb5e2d000, 33554432 <unfinished ...>
   <... munmap resumed> )            = 0
   close(5 <unfinished ...>
   <... close resumed> )             = 0

And that was the last window in this packfile.  So we closed it.
Way to go us.  Our xmmap did not expect release_pack_memory to
close the fd its about to map...

   mmap2(NULL, 31020635, PROT_READ, MAP_PRIVATE, 5, 0x6000 <unfinished ...>
   <... mmap2 resumed> )             = -1 EBADF (Bad file descriptor)

And so the Linux kernel happily tells us f' off.

   write(2, "fatal: ", 7 <unfinished ...>
   <... write resumed> )             = 7
   write(2, "Out of memory? mmap failed: Bad "..., 47 <unfinished ...>
   <... write resumed> )             = 47

And we report the bad file descriptor error, and not the ENOMEM,
and die, claiming we are out of memory.  But actually that mmap
should have succeeded, as we had enough memory for that window,
seeing as how we released the prior one.

Originally when I developed the sliding window mmap feature I had
this exact same bug in fast-import, and I dealt with it by handing
in the struct packed_git* we want to open the new window for, as the
caller wasn't prepared to reopen the packfile if unuse_one_window
closed it.  The same is true here from xmmap, but the caller doesn't
have the struct packed_git* handy.  So I'm using the file descriptor
instead to perform the same test.

dir.c(common_prefix): Fix two bugs

The function common_prefix() is used to find the common subdirectory of
a couple of pathnames. When checking if the next pathname matches up with
the prefix, it incorrectly checked the whole path, not just the prefix
(including the slash). Thus, the expensive part of the loop was executed
always.

The other bug is more serious: if the first and the last pathname in the
list have a longer common prefix than the common prefix for _all_ pathnames
in the list, the longer one would be chosen. This bug was probably hidden
by the fact that bash's wildcard expansion sorts the results, and the code
just so happens to work with sorted input.

lockfile: record the primary process.

The usual process flow is the main process opens and holds the lock to
the index, does its thing, perhaps spawning children during the course,
and then writes the resulting index out by releaseing the lock.

However, the lockfile interface uses atexit(3) to clean it up, without
regard to who actually created the lock.  This typically leads to a
confusing behaviour of lock being released too early when the child
exits, and then the parent process when it calls commit_lockfile()
finds that it cannot unlock it.

This fixes the problem by recording who created and holds the lock, and
upon atexit(3) handler, child simply ignores the lockfile the parent
created.

When I did the object decorator thing, I made the "loop over the hash"
function use the same logic for updating the hash, ie made them use

if (++j >= size)
j = 0;

for both the hash update for both "insert" and "lookup"

HOWEVER.

For some inexplicable reason I had an extraneous

j++;

in the insert path (probably just from the fact that the old code there
used

j++;
if (j >= size)

and when I made them use the same logic I just didn't remove the old
extraneous line properly.

This fixes it.

Don't repack existing objects in fast-import

Some users of fast-import have been trying to use it to rewrite
commits and trees, an activity where the all of the relevant blobs
are already available from the existing packfiles.  In such a case
we don't want to repack a blob, even if the frontend application
has supplied us the raw data rather than a mark or a SHA-1 name.

I'm intentionally only checking the packfiles that existed when
fast-import started and am always ignoring all loose object files.

We ignore loose objects because fast-import tends to operate on a
very large number of objects in a very short timespan, and it is
usually creating new objects, not reusing existing ones.  In such
a situtation the majority of the objects will not be found in the
existing packfiles, nor will they be loose object files.  If the
frontend application really wants us to look at loose object files,
then they can just repack the repository before running fast-import.

Kill the useless progress meter in merge-recursive

The mess known as the progress meter in merge-recursive was my own
fault; I put it in thinking that we might be spending a lot of time
resolving unmerged entries in the index that were not handled by
the simple 3-way index merge code.

Turns out we don't really spend that much time there, so the progress
meter was pretty much always jumping to "(n/n) 100%" as soon as
the program started.  That isn't a very good indication of progress.

Since I don't have a great solution for how a progress meter should
work here, I'm proposing we back it out entirely.

Contribute a fairly paranoid update hook

I'm using a variant of this update hook in a corporate environment
where we perform some validations of the commits and tags that
are being pushed.  The model is a "central repository" type setup,
where users are given access to push to specific branches within
the shared central repository.  In this particular installation we
run a specially patched git-receive-pack in setuid mode via SSH,
allowing all writes into the repository as the repository owner,
but only if this hook blesses it.

One of the major checks we perform with this hook is that the
'committer' line of a commit, or the 'tagger' line of a new annotated
tag actually correlates to the UNIX user who is performing the push.
Users can falsify these lines on their local repositories, but
the central repository that management trusts will reject all such
forgery attempts.  Of course 'author' lines are still allowed to
be any value, as sometimes changes do come from other individuals.

Another nice feature of this hook is the access control lists for
all repositories on the system can also be stored and tracked in
a supporting Git repository, which can also be access controlled
by itself.  This allows full auditing of who-had-what-when-and-why,
thanks to git-blame's data mining capabilities.

Fix working directory errno handling when unlinking a directory

some Linux-specific assumptions, and also ignored errors entirely for the
case where the entry was a symlink rather than a file.

This cleans it up by separating out the common case into a function of its
own, so that both regular files and symlinks can share it, and by making
the error handling more obvious (and not depend on any Linux-specific

Update 'crlf' attribute semantics.

This updates the semantics of 'crlf' so that .gitattributes file
can say "this is text, even though it may look funny".

Setting the `crlf` attribute on a path is meant to mark the path
as a "text" file.  'core.autocrlf' conversion takes place
without guessing the content type by inspection.

Unsetting the `crlf` attribute on a path is meant to mark the
path as a "binary" file.  The path never goes through line
endings conversion upon checkin/checkout.

Unspecified `crlf` attribute tells git to apply the
`core.autocrlf` conversion when the file content looks like
text.

Setting the `crlf` attribut to string value "input" is similar
to setting the attribute to `true`, but also forces git to act
as if `core.autocrlf` is set to `input` for the path.
