[PATCH] read_mapping_page for address space

Add read_mapping_page() which is used for callers that pass
mapping->a_ops->readpage as the filler for read_cache_page.  This removes
some duplication from filesystem code.

[PATCH] Add a sysfs file to determine if a kexec kernel is loaded

Create two files in /sys/kernel, kexec_loaded and kexec_crash_loaded.  Each
file contains a simple boolean value indicating whether the relevant kernel
has been loaded into memory.  The motivation for this is geared around

14 years ago[PATCH] s390_hypfs filesystem
Michael Holzheu [Fri, 23 Jun 2006 09:05:06 +0000]
[PATCH] s390_hypfs filesystem

On zSeries machines there exists an interface which allows the operating
system to retrieve LPAR hypervisor accounting data.  For example, it is
possible to get usage data for physical and virtual cpus.  In order to
provide this information to user space programs, I implemented a new
virtual Linux file system named 's390_hypfs' using the Linux 2.6 libfs
framework.  The name 's390_hypfs' stands for 'S390 Hypervisor Filesystem'.
All the accounting information is put into different virtual files which
can be accessed from user space.  All data is represented as ASCII strings.

When the file system is mounted the accounting information is retrieved and
a file system tree is created with the attribute files containing the cpu
information.  The content of the files remains unchanged until a new update
is made.  An update can be triggered from user space through writing
'something' into a special purpose update file.

We create the following directory structure:

<mount-point>/
        update
        cpus/
                <cpu-id>
                        type
                        mgmtime
                <cpu-id>
                        ...
        hyp/
                type
        systems/
                <lpar-name>
                        cpus/
                                <cpu-id>
                                        type
                                        mgmtime
                                        cputime
                                        onlinetime
                                <cpu-id>
                                        ...
                <lpar-name>
                        cpus/
                                ...

- update: File to trigger update
- cpus/: Directory for all physical cpus
- cpus/<cpu-id>/: Directory for one physical cpu.
- cpus/<cpu-id>/type: Type name of physical zSeries cpu.
- cpus/<cpu-id>/mgmtime: Physical-LPAR-management time in microseconds.
- hyp/: Directory for hypervisor information
- hyp/type: Typ of hypervisor (currently only 'LPAR Hypervisor')
- systems/: Directory for all LPARs
- systems/<lpar-name>/: Directory for one LPAR.
- systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/: Directory for the virtual cpus
- systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/type: Typ of cpu.
- systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/mgmtime:
Accumulated number of microseconds during which a physical
CPU was assigned to the logical cpu and the cpu time was
consumed by the hypervisor and was not provided to
the LPAR (LPAR overhead).

- systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/cputime:
Accumulated number of microseconds during which a physical CPU
was assigned to the logical cpu and the cpu time was consumed
by the LPAR.

- systems/<lpar-name>/cpus/<cpu-id>/onlinetime:
Accumulated number of microseconds during which the logical CPU
has been online.

As mount point for the filesystem /sys/hypervisor/s390 is created.

The update process is triggered when writing 'something' into the
'update' file at the top level hypfs directory. You can do this e.g.
with 'echo 1 > update'. During the update the whole directory structure
is deleted and built up again.

Rafael J. Wysocki [Fri, 23 Jun 2006 09:04:48 +0000]
[PATCH] swsusp: use less memory during resume

Make swsusp allocate only as much memory as needed to store the image data
and metadata during resume.

Without this patch swsusp additionally allocates many page frames that will
conflict with the "original" locations of the image data and are considered
as "unsafe", treating them as "eaten" pages (ie.  allocated but unusable).

The patch makes swsusp allocate as many pages as it'll need to store the
data read from the image in one shot, creating a list of allocated "safe"
pages, and use the observation that all pages allocated by it are marked
with the PG_nosave and PG_nosave_free flags set.   Namely, when it's about
to load an image page, swsusp can check whether the page frame
corresponding to the "original" location of this page has been allocated
(ie.  if the page frame has the PG_nosave and PG_nosave_free flags set) and
if so, it can load the page directly into this page frame.   Otherwise it
uses an allocated "safe" page from the list to store the data that will be
copied to their "original" location later on.

This allows us to save many page copyings and page allocations during
resume and in the future it may allow us to load images greater than 50% of
the normal zone.

[PATCH] i386: extra checks in show_registers()

Sometimes thread_info and task_struct get out-of-sync with each other.
Printing task.thread_info in show_registers() can help spot this.  And when
task_struct is corrupt then task.comm can contain garbage, so only print as
many characters as it can hold.

Zhang Yanmin [Fri, 23 Jun 2006 09:04:22 +0000]
[PATCH] x86: kernel irq balance doesn't work

On i386, kernel irq balance doesn't work.

1) In function do_irq_balance, after kernel finds the min_loaded cpu but
   before calling set_pending_irq to really pin the selected_irq to the
   target cpu, kernel does a cpus_and with irq_affinity[selected_irq].
   Later on, when the irq is acked, kernel would calls
   move_native_irq=>desc->handler->set_affinity to change the irq affinity.
    However, every function pointed by
   hw_interrupt_type->set_affinity(unsigned int irq, cpumask_t cpumask)
   always changes irq_affinity[irq] to cpumask.  Next time when recalling
   do_irq_balance, it has to do cpu_ands again with
   irq_affinity[selected_irq], but irq_affinity[selected_irq] already
   becomes one cpu selected by the first irq balance.

2) Function balance_irq in file arch/i386/kernel/io_apic.c has the same
   issue.

14 years ago[PATCH] fix x86 microcode driver handling of multiple matching revisions
Jan Beulich [Fri, 23 Jun 2006 09:04:19 +0000]
[PATCH] fix x86 microcode driver handling of multiple matching revisions

When multiple updates matching a given CPU are found in the update file, the
action taken by the microcode update driver was inappropriate:

- when lower revision microcode was found before matching or higher revision
  one, the driver would needlessly complain that it would not downgrade the
  CPU
- when microcode matching the currently installed revision was found before
  newer revision code, no update would actually take place

To change this behavior, the driver now concludes about possibly updates and
issues messages only when the entire input was parsed.

Additionally, this adds back (in different places, and conditionalized upon
a new module option) some messages removed by a previous patch.

Christoph Lameter [Fri, 23 Jun 2006 09:03:57 +0000]
[PATCH] move_pages: fix 32 -> 64 bit compat function

The definition of the third parameter is a pointer to an array of virtual
addresses which give us some trouble.  The existing code calculated the
wrong address in the array since I used void to avoid having to specify a
type.

I now use the correct type "compat_uptr_t __user *" in the definition of
the function in kernel/compat.c.

However, I used __u32 in syscalls.h.  Would have to include compat.h there
in order to provide the same definition which would generate an ugly
include situation.

On both ia64 and x86_64 compat_uptr_t is u32. So this works although
parameter declarations differ.

14 years ago[PATCH] page migration: sys_move_pages(): support moving of individual pages
Christoph Lameter [Fri, 23 Jun 2006 09:03:55 +0000]
[PATCH] page migration: sys_move_pages(): support moving of individual pages

move_pages() is used to move individual pages of a process. The function can
be used to determine the location of pages and to move them onto the desired
node. move_pages() returns status information for each page.

long move_pages(pid, number_of_pages_to_move,
addresses_of_pages[],
nodes[] or NULL,
status[],
flags);

The addresses of pages is an array of void * pointing to the
pages to be moved.

The nodes array contains the node numbers that the pages should be moved
to. If a NULL is passed instead of an array then no pages are moved but
the status array is updated. The status request may be used to determine
the page state before issuing another move_pages() to move pages.

The status array will contain the state of all individual page migration
attempts when the function terminates. The status array is only valid if
move_pages() completed successfullly.

Possible page states in status[]:

0..MAX_NUMNODES The page is now on the indicated node.

-ENOENT Page is not present

-EACCES Page is mapped by multiple processes and can only
be moved if MPOL_MF_MOVE_ALL is specified.

-EPERM The page has been mlocked by a process/driver and
cannot be moved.

-EBUSY Page is busy and cannot be moved. Try again later.

-EFAULT Invalid address (no VMA or zero page).

-ENOMEM Unable to allocate memory on target node.

-EIO Unable to write back page. The page must be written
back in order to move it since the page is dirty and the
filesystem does not provide a migration function that
would allow the moving of dirty pages.

-EINVAL A dirty page cannot be moved. The filesystem does not provide
a migration function and has no ability to write back pages.

The flags parameter indicates what types of pages to move:

MPOL_MF_MOVE Move pages that are only mapped by the process.

MPOL_MF_MOVE_ALL Also move pages that are mapped by multiple processes.
Requires sufficient capabilities.

Possible return codes from move_pages()

-ENOENT No pages found that would require moving. All pages
are either already on the target node, not present, had an
invalid address or could not be moved because they were
mapped by multiple processes.

-EINVAL Flags other than MPOL_MF_MOVE(_ALL) specified or an attempt
to migrate pages in a kernel thread.

-EPERM MPOL_MF_MOVE_ALL specified without sufficient priviledges.
or an attempt to move a process belonging to another user.

-EACCES One of the target nodes is not allowed by the current cpuset.

-ENODEV One of the target nodes is not online.

-ESRCH Process does not exist.

-E2BIG Too many pages to move.

-ENOMEM Not enough memory to allocate control array.

-EFAULT Parameters could not be accessed.

A test program for move_pages() may be found with the patches
on ftp.kernel.org:/pub/linux/kernel/people/christoph/pmig/patches-2.6.17-rc4-mm3

From: Christoph Lameter <clameter@sgi.com>

  Detailed results for sys_move_pages()

  Pass a pointer to an integer to get_new_page() that may be used to
  indicate where the completion status of a migration operation should be
  placed.  This allows sys_move_pags() to report back exactly what happened to
  each page.

  Wish there would be a better way to do this. Looks a bit hacky.

[PATCH] page migration: use allocator function for migrate_pages()

Instead of passing a list of new pages, pass a function to allocate a new
page.  This allows the correct placement of MPOL_INTERLEAVE pages during page
migration.  It also further simplifies the callers of migrate pages.
migrate_pages() becomes similar to migrate_pages_to() so drop
migrate_pages_to().  The batching of new page allocations becomes unnecessary.

Currently migrate_pages() is mess with lots of goto.  Extract two functions
from migrate_pages() and get rid of the gotos.

Plus we can just unconditionally set the locked bit on the new page since we
are the only one holding a reference.  Locking is to stop others from
accessing the page once we establish references to the new page.

processing.

Ingo Molnar [Fri, 23 Jun 2006 09:03:46 +0000]
[PATCH] mm/slab.c: fix early init assumption

The SLAB bootstrap code assumes that the first two kmalloc caches created
(the INDEX_AC and INDEX_L3 kmalloc caches) wont be off-slab.  But due to AC
and L3 structure size increase in lockdep, one of them ended up being
off-slab, and subsequently crashing with:

Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000000000000000 RIP:
 [<ffffffff80267478>] kmem_cache_alloc+0x26/0x7d

The fix is to introduce a bootstrap flag and to use it to prevent off-slab
caches being created so early during bootup.

(The calculation for off-slab caches is quite complex so i didnt want to
complicate things with introducing yet another INDEX_ calculation, the flag
approach is simpler and smaller.)

[PATCH] add page_mkwrite() vm_operations method

Add a new VMA operation to notify a filesystem or other driver about the
MMU generating a fault because userspace attempted to write to a page
mapped through a read-only PTE.

This facility permits the filesystem or driver to:

 (*) Implement storage allocation/reservation on attempted write, and so to
     deal with problems such as ENOSPC more gracefully (perhaps by generating
     SIGBUS).

 (*) Delay making the page writable until the contents have been written to a
     backing cache. This is useful for NFS/AFS when using FS-Cache/CacheFS.
     It permits the filesystem to have some guarantee about the state of the
     cache.

 (*) Account and limit number of dirty pages. This is one piece of the puzzle
     needed to make shared writable mapping work safely in FUSE.

Needed by cachefs (Or is it cachefiles?  Or fscache? <head spins>).

At least four other groups have stated an interest in it or a desire to use
the functionality it provides: FUSE, OCFS2, NTFS and JFFS2.  Also, things like
EXT3 really ought to use it to deal with the case of shared-writable mmap
encountering ENOSPC before we permit the page to be dirtied.

From: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl>

  get_user_pages(.write=1, .force=1) can generate COW hits on read-only
  shared mappings, this patch traps those as mkpage_write candidates and fails

[PATCH] slab: verify pointers before free

Passing an invalid pointer to kfree() and kmem_cache_free() is likely to
cause bad memory corruption or even take down the whole system because the
bad pointer is likely reused immediately due to the per-CPU caches.  Until
now, we don't do any verification for this if CONFIG_DEBUG_SLAB is
disabled.

As suggested by Linus, add PageSlab check to page_to_cache() and
page_to_slab() to verify pointers passed to kfree().  Also, move the
stronger check from cache_free_debugcheck() to kmem_cache_free() to ensure
the passed pointer actually belongs to the cache we're about to free the
object.

For page_to_cache() and page_to_slab(), the assertions should have
virtually no extra cost (two instructions, no data cache pressure) and for
kmem_cache_free() the overhead should be minimal.

without loosing their connection to pagecache pages.

Note that we implement the migration entries only for linear mappings.
Nonlinear mappings still require the unmapping of the ptes for migration.

And another writepage() ugliness shows up.  writepage() can drop the page
lock.  Therefore we have to remove migration ptes before calling writepages()
in order to avoid having migration entries point to unlocked pages.

[PATCH] Swapless page migration: add R/W migration entries

Implement read/write migration ptes

We take the upper two swapfiles for the two types of migration ptes and define
a series of macros in swapops.h.

The VM is modified to handle the migration entries.  migration entries can
only be encountered when the page they are pointing to is locked.  This limits
the number of places one has to fix.  We also check in copy_pte_range and in
mprotect_pte_range() for migration ptes.

We check for migration ptes in do_swap_cache and call a function that will
then wait on the page lock.  This allows us to effectively stop all accesses
to apge.

Migration entries are created by try_to_unmap if called for migration and
removed by local functions in migrate.c

From: Hugh Dickins <hugh@veritas.com>

  Several times while testing swapless page migration (I've no NUMA, just
  hacking it up to migrate recklessly while running load), I've hit the
  BUG_ON(!PageLocked(p)) in migration_entry_to_page.

  This comes from an orphaned migration entry, unrelated to the current
  correctly locked migration, but hit by remove_anon_migration_ptes as it
  checks an address in each vma of the anon_vma list.

  Such an orphan may be left behind if an earlier migration raced with fork:
  copy_one_pte can duplicate a migration entry from parent to child, after
  remove_anon_migration_ptes has checked the child vma, but before it has
  removed it from the parent vma.  (If the process were later to fault on this
  orphaned entry, it would hit the same BUG from migration_entry_wait.)

  This could be fixed by locking anon_vma in copy_one_pte, but we'd rather
  not.  There's no such problem with file pages, because vma_prio_tree_add
  adds child vma after parent vma, and the page table locking at each end is
  enough to serialize.  Follow that example with anon_vma: add new vmas to the
  tail instead of the head.

  (There's no corresponding problem when inserting migration entries,
  because a missed pte will leave the page count and mapcount high, which is
  allowed for.  And there's no corresponding problem when migrating via swap,
  because a leftover swap entry will be correctly faulted.  But the swapless
  method has no refcounting of its entries.)

From: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>

  pte_unmap_unlock() takes the pte pointer as an argument.

From: Hugh Dickins <hugh@veritas.com>

  Several times while testing swapless page migration, gcc has tried to exec
  a pointer instead of a string: smells like COW mappings are not being
  properly write-protected on fork.

  The protection in copy_one_pte looks very convincing, until at last you
  realize that the second arg to make_migration_entry is a boolean "write",
  and SWP_MIGRATION_READ is 30.

  Anyway, it's better done like in change_pte_range, using
  is_write_migration_entry and make_migration_entry_read.

From: Hugh Dickins <hugh@veritas.com>

  Remove unnecessary obfuscation from sys_swapon's range check on swap type,
  which blew up causing memory corruption once swapless migration made
  MAX_SWAPFILES no longer 2 ^ MAX_SWAPFILES_SHIFT.
