10 years agox86: change the default cache size to 64 bytes
Ingo Molnar [Mon, 12 Jan 2009 22:37:16 +0000]
x86: change the default cache size to 64 bytes

Right now the generic cacheline size is 128 bytes - that is wasteful
when structures are aligned, as all modern x86 CPUs have an (effective)
cacheline sizes of 64 bytes.

It was set to 128 bytes due to some cacheline aliasing problems on
older P4 systems, but those are many years old and we dont optimize
for them anymore. (They'll still get the 128 bytes cacheline size if
the kernel is specifically built for Pentium 4)

10 years agox86, tlb flush_data: replace per_cpu with an array
Frederik Deweerdt [Mon, 12 Jan 2009 21:35:42 +0000]
x86, tlb flush_data: replace per_cpu with an array

Impact: micro-optimization, memory reduction

On x86_64 flush tlb data is stored in per_cpu variables. This is
unnecessary because only the first NUM_INVALIDATE_TLB_VECTORS entries
are accessed.

This patch aims at making the code less confusing (there's nothing
really "per_cpu") by using a plain array. It also would save some memory
on most distros out there (Ubuntu x86_64 has NR_CPUS=64 by default).

[ Ravikiran G Thirumalai also pointed out that the correct alignment
  is ____cacheline_internodealigned_in_smp, so that there's no
  bouncing on vsmp. ]

10 years agofilesystem freeze: add error handling of write_super_lockfs/unlockfs
Takashi Sato [Sat, 10 Jan 2009 00:40:58 +0000]
filesystem freeze: add error handling of write_super_lockfs/unlockfs

Currently, ext3 in mainline Linux doesn't have the freeze feature which
suspends write requests.  So, we cannot take a backup which keeps the
filesystem's consistency with the storage device's features (snapshot and
replication) while it is mounted.

In many case, a commercial filesystem (e.g.  VxFS) has the freeze feature
and it would be used to get the consistent backup.

If Linux's standard filesystem ext3 has the freeze feature, we can do it
without a commercial filesystem.

So I have implemented the ioctls of the freeze feature.
I think we can take the consistent backup with the following steps.
1. Freeze the filesystem with the freeze ioctl.
2. Separate the replication volume or create the snapshot
   with the storage device's feature.
3. Unfreeze the filesystem with the unfreeze ioctl.
4. Take the backup from the separated replication volume
   or the snapshot.

This patch:

VFS:
Changed the type of write_super_lockfs and unlockfs from "void"
to "int" so that they can return an error.
Rename write_super_lockfs and unlockfs of the super block operation
freeze_fs and unfreeze_fs to avoid a confusion.

ext3, ext4, xfs, gfs2, jfs:
Changed the type of write_super_lockfs and unlockfs from "void"
to "int" so that write_super_lockfs returns an error if needed,
and unlockfs always returns 0.

reiserfs:
Changed the type of write_super_lockfs and unlockfs from "void"
to "int" so that they always return 0 (success) to keep a current behavior.

10 years agomISDN: Add feature via MISDN_CTRL_FILL_EMPTY to fill fifo if empty
Andreas Eversberg [Sat, 2 Aug 2008 20:51:52 +0000]
mISDN: Add feature via MISDN_CTRL_FILL_EMPTY to fill fifo if empty

This prevents underrun of fifo when filled and in case of an underrun it
prevents subsequent underruns due to jitter.
Improve dsp, so buffers are kept filled with a certain delay, so moderate
jitter will not cause underrun all the time -> the audio quality is highly
improved. tones are not interrupted by gaps anymore, except when CPU is
stalling or in high load.

10 years agox86: only scan the root bus in early PCI quirks
Andi Kleen [Fri, 9 Jan 2009 20:17:39 +0000]
x86: only scan the root bus in early PCI quirks

We found a situation on Linus' machine that the Nvidia timer quirk hit on
a Intel chipset system.  The problem is that the system has a fancy Nvidia
card with an own PCI bridge, and the early-quirks code looking for any
NVidia bridge triggered on it incorrectly.  This didn't lead a boot
failure by luck, but the timer routing code selecting the wrong timer
first and some ugly messages.  It might lead to real problems on other
systems.

I checked all the devices which are currently checked for by early_quirks
and it turns out they are all located in the root bus zero.

So change the early-quirks loop to only scan bus 0.  This incidently also
saves quite some unnecessary scanning work, because early_quirks doesn't
go through all the non root busses.

The graphics card is not on bus 0, so it is not matched anymore.

   Hi Jens,

    I've found a little bug for you.  It was introduced by
        a6f23657d3072bde6844055bbc2290e497f33fbc

        block: add one-hit cache for disk partition lookup

    and has the effect of killing my machine whenever I try to assemble
    an md array :-(
    One of the devices in the array has partitions, and mdadm always
    deletes partitions before putting a whole-device in an array (as it
    can cause confusion).  The next IO to that device locks the machine.
    I don't really understand exactly why it locks up, but it happens in
    disk_map_sector_rcu().  This patch fixes it.

Which is due to a missing clear of the (now) stale partition lookup
data. So clear that when we delete a partition.

Btrfs: explicitly mark the tree log root for writeback

Each subvolume has an extent_state_tree used to mark metadata
that needs to be sent to disk while syncing the tree.  This is
used in addition to the dirty bits on the pages themselves so that
a single subvolume can be sent to disk efficiently in disk order.

Normally this marking happens in btrfs_alloc_free_block, which also does
special recording of dirty tree blocks for the tree log roots.

Yan Zheng noticed that when the root of the log tree is allocated, it is added
to the wrong writeback list.  The fix used here is to explicitly set
it dirty as part of tree log creation.

[S390] hvc_iucv: Special handling of IUCV HVC devices

This patch introduces special handling of the IUCV HVC console device.

If the first IUCV HVC terminal is used as (preferred) Linux console, and
needs some special handling for hangup.
The hvc_iucv_private structure contains a flag to indicate whether a IUCV
HVC device is used as a console.

A terminal acting as "console" behaves different if a tty hangup occurs:
If the iucv communication path is severed, a tty hangup is not
triggered (because the HVC layer does not notify its back-end in that case).
Instead, the console session is left unchanged and the IUCV HVC device is
reset to allow re-connects.
Note: Any output between the disconnect and a re-connect is discarded.

[S390] hvc_iucv: Limit rate of outgoing IUCV messages

This patch introduces a send buffer to limit outgoing IUCV messages up to
a maximum of 25 IUCV messages per second.

If no communication path to a IUCV HVC terminal exist, any data written to
the terminal is discarded.

Jan Glauber [Fri, 9 Jan 2009 11:14:55 +0000]
[S390] qdio: fix broken pointer in case of CONFIG_DEBUG_FS is disabled

If CONFIG_DEBUG_FS is disabled debugfs_create_file returns -ENODEV instead
of zero. Since the return value is stored and used at shutdown to remove
existing entries an OOPS may be triggered.

Add a check of the debugfs_create_file return value and in case of an error
set the entry to NULL so it will be ignored at shutdown.

Holger Smolinski [Fri, 9 Jan 2009 11:14:51 +0000]
[S390] dasd: add device attribute to disable blocking on lost paths

When the connection between host and storage server is lost, the
dasd device driver usually blocks all I/O on affected devices and
waits for them to reappear. In some setups however it would be
better if the I/O is returned as error so that device can be
recovered by some other means, eg. in a raid or multipath setup.

[S390] dasd: send change uevents for dasd block devices

When a DASD device enters or leaves the 'online' state we need to
trigger change events for the respective disk and partitions.
These extra events are needed because when disk and partitions are
first added, udev rules that try to read disk labels or other data
may fail as the disk may not yet be ready.
