12 years agoIPC: consolidate sem_exit_ns(), msg_exit_ns() and shm_exit_ns()
Pierre Peiffer [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 12:18:57 +0000]
IPC: consolidate sem_exit_ns(), msg_exit_ns() and shm_exit_ns()

sem_exit_ns(), msg_exit_ns() and shm_exit_ns() are all called when an
ipc_namespace is released to free all ipcs of each type.  But in fact, they
do the same thing: they loop around all ipcs to free them individually by
calling a specific routine.

This patch proposes to consolidate this by introducing a common function,
free_ipcs(), that do the job.  The specific routine to call on each
individual ipcs is passed as parameter.  For this, these ipc-specific
'free' routines are reworked to take a generic 'struct ipc_perm' as
parameter.

12 years agoIPC: make struct ipc_ids static in ipc_namespace
Pierre Peiffer [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 12:18:57 +0000]
IPC: make struct ipc_ids static in ipc_namespace

Each ipc_namespace contains a table of 3 pointers to struct ipc_ids (3 for
msg, sem and shm, structure used to store all ipcs) These 'struct ipc_ids'
are dynamically allocated for each icp_namespace as the ipc_namespace
itself (for the init namespace, they are initialized with pointers to
static variables instead)

It is so for historical reason: in fact, before the use of idr to store the
ipcs, the ipcs were stored in tables of variable length, depending of the
maximum number of ipc allowed.  Now, these 'struct ipc_ids' have a fixed
size.  As they are allocated in any cases for each new ipc_namespace, there
is no gain of memory in having them allocated separately of the struct
ipc_namespace.

This patch proposes to make this table static in the struct ipc_namespace.
Thus, we can allocate all in once and get rid of all the code needed to
allocate and free these ipc_ids separately.

12 years agoIPC/semaphores: consolidate SEM_STAT and IPC_STAT commands
Pierre Peiffer [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 12:18:56 +0000]
IPC/semaphores: consolidate SEM_STAT and IPC_STAT commands

These commands (SEM_STAT and IPC_STAT) are rather doing the same things
(only the meaning of the id given as input and the return value differ).
However, for the semaphores, they are handled in two different places (two
different functions).

This patch consolidates this for clarification by handling these both
commands in the same place in semctl_nolock().  It also removes one unused
parameter for this function.

ipc: uninline some code from util.h

ipc_lock_check_down(), ipc_lock_check() and ipcget() seem too large to be
inline.  Besides, they give no optimization being inline as they perform
calls inside in any case.

Moving them into ipc/util.c saves 500 bytes of vmlinux and shortens IPC
internal API.

12 years agoproc: fix ->open'less usage due to ->proc_fops flip
Alexey Dobriyan [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 12:18:37 +0000]
proc: fix ->open'less usage due to ->proc_fops flip

Typical PDE creation code looks like:

pde = create_proc_entry("foo", 0, NULL);
if (pde)
pde->proc_fops = &foo_proc_fops;

Notice that PDE is first created, only then ->proc_fops is set up to
final value. This is a problem because right after creation
a) PDE is fully visible in /proc , and
b) ->proc_fops are proc_file_operations which do not have ->open callback. So, it's
   possible to ->read without ->open (see one class of oopses below).

The fix is new API called proc_create() which makes sure ->proc_fops are
set up before gluing PDE to main tree. Typical new code looks like:

pde = proc_create("foo", 0, NULL, &foo_proc_fops);
if (!pde)
return -ENOMEM;

Fix most networking users for a start.

In the long run, create_proc_entry() for regular files will go.

12 years agoproc: fix the threaded /proc/self
Eric W. Biederman [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 12:18:35 +0000]
proc: fix the threaded /proc/self

Long ago when the CLONE_THREAD support first went it someone thought it
would be wise to point /proc/self at /proc/<tgid> instead of /proc/<pid>.

Given that /proc/<tgid> can return information about a very different task
(if enough things have been unshared) then our current process /proc/<tgid>
seems blatantly wrong.  So far I have yet to think up an example where the
current behavior would be advantageous, and I can see several places where
it is seriously non-intuitive.

We may be stuck with the current broken behavior for backwards
compatibility reasons but lets try fixing our ancient bug for the 2.6.25
time frame and see if anyone screams.

Currently if you access a /proc that is not mounted with your processes
current pid namespace /proc/self will point at a completely random task.

This patch fixes /proc/self to point to the current process if it is
available in the particular mount of /proc or to return -ENOENT if the
current process is not visible.

12 years agoproc: rewrite do_task_stat to correctly handle pid namespaces.
Eric W. Biederman [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 12:18:31 +0000]
proc: rewrite do_task_stat to correctly handle pid namespaces.

Currently (as pointed out by Oleg) do_task_stat has a race when calling
task_pid_nr_ns with the task exiting.  In addition do_task_stat is not
currently displaying information in the context of the pid namespace that
mounted the /proc filesystem.  So "cut -d' ' -f 1 /proc/<pid>/stat" may not
equal <pid>.

This patch fixes the problem by converting to a single_open seq_file show
method.  Getting the pid namespace from the filesystem superblock instead of
current, and simply using the the struct pid from the inode instead of
attempting to get that same pid from the task.

Eric W. Biederman [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 12:18:30 +0000]
proc: implement proc_single_file_operations

Currently many /proc/pid files use a crufty precursor to the current seq_file
api, and they don't have direct access to the pid_namespace or the pid of for

So implement proc_single_file_operations to make the seq_file routines easy to

12 years agonamespaces: move the IPC namespace under IPC_NS option
Pavel Emelyanov [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 12:18:22 +0000]
namespaces: move the IPC namespace under IPC_NS option

Currently the IPC namespace management code is spread over the ipc/*.c files.
I moved this code into ipc/namespace.c file which is compiled out when needed.

The linux/ipc_namespace.h file is used to store the prototypes of the
functions in namespace.c and the stubs for NAMESPACES=n case.  This is done
so, because the stub for copy_ipc_namespace requires the knowledge of the
CLONE_NEWIPC flag, which is in sched.h.  But the linux/ipc.h file itself in
included into many many .c files via the sys.h->sem.h sequence so adding the
sched.h into it will make all these .c depend on sched.h which is not that
good.  On the other hand the knowledge about the namespaces stuff is required
in 4 .c files only.

Besides, this patch compiles out some auxiliary functions from ipc/sem.c,
msg.c and shm.c files.  It turned out that moving these functions into
namespaces.c is not that easy because they use many other calls and macros
from the original file.  Moving them would make this patch complicated.  On
the other hand all these functions can be consolidated, so I will send a
separate patch doing this a bit later.

12 years agodm raid1: handle read failures
Jonathan Brassow [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 02:11:37 +0000]
dm raid1: handle read failures

This patch gives the ability to respond-to/record device failures
that happen during read operations.  It also adds the ability to
read from mirror devices that are not the primary if they are
in-sync.

There are essentially two read paths in mirroring; the direct path
and the queued path.  When a read request is mapped, if the region
is 'in-sync' the direct path is taken; otherwise the queued path
is taken.

If the direct path is taken, we must record bio information so that
if the read fails we can retry it.  We then discover the status of
a direct read through mirror_end_io.  If the read has failed, we will
mark the device from which the read was attempted as failed (so we
don't try to read from it again), restore the bio and try again.

If the queued path is taken, we discover the results of the read
from 'read_callback'.  If the device failed, we will mark the device
as failed and attempt the read again if there is another device
where this region is known to be 'in-sync'.

12 years agodm raid1: fix EIO after log failure
Jonathan Brassow [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 02:11:35 +0000]
dm raid1: fix EIO after log failure

This patch adds the ability to requeue write I/O to
core device-mapper when there is a log device failure.

If a write to the log produces and error, the pending writes are
put on the "failures" list.  Since the log is marked as failed,
they will stay on the failures list until a suspend happens.

Suspends come in two phases, presuspend and postsuspend.  We must
make sure that all the writes on the failures list are requeued
in the presuspend phase (a requirement of dm core).  This means
that recovery must be complete (because writes may be delayed
behind it) and the failures list must be requeued before we
return from presuspend.

The mechanisms to ensure recovery is complete (or stopped) was
already in place, but needed to be moved from postsuspend to
presuspend.  We rely on 'flush_workqueue' to ensure that the
mirror thread is complete and therefore, has requeued all writes
in the failures list.

Because we are using flush_workqueue, we must ensure that no
additional 'queue_work' calls will produce additional I/O
that we need to requeue (because once we return from
presuspend, we are unable to do anything about it).  'queue_work'
is called in response to the following functions:
- complete_resync_work = NA, recovery is stopped
- rh_dec (mirror_end_io) = NA, only calls 'queue_work' if it
                           is ready to recover the region
                           (recovery is stopped) or it needs
                           to clear the region in the log*
                           **this doesn't get called while
                           suspending**
- rh_recovery_end = NA, recovery is stopped
- rh_recovery_start = NA, recovery is stopped
- write_callback = 1) Writes w/o failures simply call
                   bio_endio -> mirror_end_io -> rh_dec
                   (see rh_dec above)
                   2) Writes with failures are put on
                   the failures list and queue_work is
                   called**
                   ** write_callbacks don't happen
                   during suspend **
- do_failures = NA, 'queue_work' not called if suspending
- add_mirror (initialization) = NA, only done on mirror creation
- queue_bio = NA, 1) delayed I/O scheduled before flush_workqueue
              is called.  2) No more I/Os are being issued.
              3) Re-attempted READs can still be handled.
              (Write completions are handled through rh_dec/
              write_callback - mention above - and do not
              use queue_bio.)

12 years agodm raid1: handle write failures
Jonathan Brassow [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 02:11:29 +0000]
dm raid1: handle write failures

This patch gives mirror the ability to handle device failures
during normal write operations.

The 'write_callback' function is called when a write completes.
If all the writes failed or succeeded, we report failure or
success respectively.  If some of the writes failed, we call
fail_mirror; which increments the error count for the device, notes
the type of error encountered (DM_RAID1_WRITE_ERROR),  and
selects a new primary (if necessary).  Note that the primary
device can never change while the mirror is not in-sync (IOW,
while recovery is happening.)  This means that the scenario
where a failed write changes the primary and gives
recovery_complete a chance to misread the primary never happens.
The fact that the primary can change has necessitated the change
to the default_mirror field.  We need to protect against reading
garbage while the primary changes.  We then add the bio to a new
list in the mirror set, 'failures'.  For every bio in the 'failures'
list, we call a new function, '__bio_mark_nosync', where we mark
the region 'not-in-sync' in the log and properly set the region
state as, RH_NOSYNC.  Userspace must also be notified of the
failure.  This is done by 'raising an event' (dm_table_event()).
If fail_mirror is called in process context the event can be raised
right away.  If in interrupt context, the event is deferred to the
kmirrord thread - which raises the event if 'event_waiting' is set.

Backwards compatibility is maintained by ignoring errors if
the DM_FEATURES_HANDLE_ERRORS flag is not present.

- New atomic variable in struct stripe to record the number of
errors each stripe volume device has experienced (could be used
later with uevents to report back directly to userspace)

- New workqueue/work struct setup to process the trigger_event function

- New end_io function. It is here that testing for BIO error conditions
take place. It determines the exact stripe that cause the error,
records this in the new atomic variable, and calls the queue_work() function

- New trigger_event function to process failure events. This
calls dm_table_event()

12 years agoSLUB: Support for performance statistics
Christoph Lameter [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 01:47:41 +0000]
SLUB: Support for performance statistics

The statistics provided here allow the monitoring of allocator behavior but
at the cost of some (minimal) loss of performance. Counters are placed in
SLUB's per cpu data structure. The per cpu structure may be extended by the
statistics to grow larger than one cacheline which will increase the cache
footprint of SLUB.

There is a compile option to enable/disable the inclusion of the runtime
statistics and its off by default.

The slabinfo tool is enhanced to support these statistics via two options:

-D  Switches the line of information displayed for a slab from size
mode to activity mode.

-A Sorts the slabs displayed by activity. This allows the display of
the slabs most important to the performance of a certain load.

-r Report option will report detailed statistics on

Example (tbench load):

slabinfo -AD ->Shows the most active slabs

Name                   Objects    Alloc     Free   %Fast
skbuff_fclone_cache         33 111953835 111953835  99  99

:0000096                  1703    12358    10784  99  98
:0000128                   762    10582     9875  94  18
:0000512                   184     9807     9647  95  81
:0002048                   479     9669     9195  83  65
anon_vma                   777     9461     9002  99  71
kmalloc-8                 6492     9981     5624  99  97
:0000768                   258     7174     6931  58  15

So the skbuff_fclone_cache is of highest importance for the tbench load.
Pretty high load on the 192 sized slab. Look for the aliases

slabinfo -a | grep 000192
:0000192     <- xfs_btree_cur filp kmalloc-192 uid_cache tw_sock_TCP
request_sock_TCPv6 tw_sock_TCPv6 skbuff_head_cache xfs_ili

Likely skbuff_head_cache.

Looking into the statistics of the skbuff_fclone_cache is possible through

slabinfo skbuff_fclone_cache ->-r option implied if cache name is mentioned

.... Usual output ...

Descriptions of the output:

Total: The total number of allocation and frees that occurred for a
slab

Fastpath: The number of allocations/frees that used the fastpath.

Slowpath: Other allocations

Page Alloc: Number of calls to the page allocator as a result of slowpath
processing

Add Partial: Number of slabs added to the partial list through free or
alloc (occurs during cpuslab flushes)

Remove Partial: Number of slabs removed from the partial list as a result of
allocations retrieving a partial slab or by a free freeing
the last object of a slab.

RemoteObj/Froz: How many times were remotely freed object encountered when a
slab was about to be deactivated. Frozen: How many times was
free able to skip list processing because the slab was in use
as the cpuslab of another processor.

Flushes: Number of times the cpuslab was flushed on request
(kmem_cache_shrink, may result from races in __slab_alloc)

Refill: Number of times we were able to refill the cpuslab from
remotely freed objects for the same slab.

Deactivate: Statistics how slabs were deactivated. Shows how they were
put onto the partial list.

In general fastpath is very good. Slowpath without partial list processing is
also desirable. Any touching of partial list uses node specific locks which
may potentially cause list lock contention.

12 years agoSLUB: Alternate fast paths using cmpxchg_local
Christoph Lameter [Tue, 8 Jan 2008 07:20:30 +0000]
SLUB: Alternate fast paths using cmpxchg_local

Provide an alternate implementation of the SLUB fast paths for alloc
and free using cmpxchg_local. The cmpxchg_local fast path is selected
for arches that have CONFIG_FAST_CMPXCHG_LOCAL set. An arch should only
set CONFIG_FAST_CMPXCHG_LOCAL if the cmpxchg_local is faster than an
interrupt enable/disable sequence. This is known to be true for both
x86 platforms so set FAST_CMPXCHG_LOCAL for both arches.

Currently another requirement for the fastpath is that the kernel is
compiled without preemption. The restriction will go away with the
introduction of a new per cpu allocator and new per cpu operations.

The advantages of a cmpxchg_local based fast path are:

1. Potentially lower cycle count (30%-60% faster)

2. There is no need to disable and enable interrupts on the fast path.
   Currently interrupts have to be disabled and enabled on every
   slab operation. This is likely avoiding a significant percentage
   of interrupt off / on sequences in the kernel.

3. The disposal of freed slabs can occur with interrupts enabled.

The alternate path is realized using #ifdef's. Several attempts to do the
same with macros and inline functions resulted in a mess (in particular due
to the strange way that local_interrupt_save() handles its argument and due
to the need to define macros/functions that sometimes disable interrupts
and sometimes do something else).

12 years agoSLUB: Use unique end pointer for each slab page.
Christoph Lameter [Tue, 8 Jan 2008 07:20:29 +0000]
SLUB: Use unique end pointer for each slab page.

We use a NULL pointer on freelists to signal that there are no more objects.
However the NULL pointers of all slabs match in contrast to the pointers to
the real objects which are in different ranges for different slab pages.

Change the end pointer to be a pointer to the first object and set bit 0.
Every slab will then have a different end pointer. This is necessary to ensure
that end markers can be matched to the source slab during cmpxchg_local.

Bring back the use of the mapping field by SLUB since we would otherwise have
to call a relatively expensive function page_address() in __slab_alloc().  Use
of the mapping field allows avoiding a call to page_address() in various other
functions as well.

There is no need to change the page_mapping() function since bit 0 is set on
the mapping as also for anonymous pages.  page_mapping(slab_page) will
therefore still return NULL although the mapping field is overloaded.
