Magnus Damm [Sat, 5 Nov 2005 16:25:54 +0000]
[PATCH] x86_64: Make node boundaries consistent

The current x86_64 NUMA memory code is inconsequent when it comes to node
memory ranges. The exact behaviour varies depending on which config option
that is used.

setup_node_bootmem() has start and end as arguments and these are used to
calculate the size of the node like this: (end - start). This is all fine
if end is pointing to the first non-available byte. The problem is that the
current x86_64 code sometimes treats it as the last present byte and sometimes
as the first non-available byte. The result is that some configurations might
lose a page at the end of the range.

This patch tries to fix CONFIG_ACPI_NUMA, CONFIG_K8_NUMA and CONFIG_NUMA_EMU
so they all treat the end variable as the first non-available byte. This is
the same way as the single node code.

The patch is boot tested on dual x86_64 hardware with the above configurations,
but maybe the removed code is needed as some workaround?

[PATCH] x86_64: Make ACPI NUMA and NUMA emulation peers of K8_NUMA in Kconfig

On x86_64 arches, there is no way to choose ACPI_NUMA without having to choose
K8_NUMA.  CONFIG_K8_NUMA is not needed for Intel EM64T NUMA boxes.  It also
looks odd if you have to select ACPI_NUMA from the power management menu.
This patch fixes those oddities.  Patch does the following:

1. Makes NUMA a config option like other arches
2. Makes topology detection options like K8_NUMA dependent on NUMA
3. Choosing ACPI NUMA detection can be done from the standard
   "Processor type and features" menu

[PATCH] x86_64: Use common sys_time64

Keeping this function does not makes sense because it's a copied (and
buggy) copy of sys_time.  The only difference is that now.tv_sec (which is
a time_t, i.e.  a 64-bit long) is copied (and truncated) into a int
(32-bit).

The prototype is the same (they both take a long __user *), so let's drop
this and redirect it to sys_time (and make sure it exists by defining
__ARCH_WANT_SYS_TIME).

Only disadvantage is that the sys_stime definition is also compiled (may be
fixed if needed by adding a separate __ARCH_WANT_SYS_STIME macro, and
defining it for all arch's defining __ARCH_WANT_SYS_TIME except x86_64).

Between the few users of ____cacheline_maxaligned_in_smp, we also have (for
example) rcu_ctrlblk, and struct zone, with zone->{lru_,}lock.  I.e.  we have
a lot of excess cacheline bouncing on them.

No correctness issues, obviously.  So this could even be merged for 2.6.14
(I'm not a fan of this idea, though).

the CPU does all the interesting bits.

So enable try unsupported by default.

Can be still disabled with try_unsupported=0 (module) or
amd64.try_unsupported=0   (boot option)

[PATCH] x86_64: Optimize NUMA node hash function

Compute the highest possible value for memnode_shift, in order to reduce
footprint of memnodemap[] to the minimum, thus making all users
(phys_to_nid(), kfree()), more cache friendly.

Before the patch :

 Node 0 MemBase 0000000000000000 Limit 00000001ffffffff
 Node 1 MemBase 0000000200000000 Limit 00000003ffffffff
 Using 23 for the hash shift. Max adder is 3ffffffff

After the patch :

 Node 0 MemBase 0000000000000000 Limit 00000001ffffffff
 Node 1 MemBase 0000000200000000 Limit 00000003ffffffff
 Using 33 for the hash shift.

In this case, only 2 bytes of memnodemap[] are used, instead of 2048

Andi Kleen [Sat, 5 Nov 2005 16:25:54 +0000]
[PATCH] x86_64: New heuristics to find out hotpluggable CPUs.

With a NR_CPUS==128 kernel with CPU hotplug enabled we would waste 4MB
on per CPU data of all possible CPUs.  The reason was that HOTPLUG
always set up possible map to NR_CPUS cpus and then we need to allocate
that much (each per CPU data is roughly ~32k now)

The underlying problem is that ACPI didn't tell us how many hotplug CPUs
the platform supports.  So the old code just assumed all, which would
lead to this memory wastage.

This implements some new heuristics:

 - If the BIOS specified disabled CPUs in the ACPI/mptables assume they
   can be enabled later (this is bending the ACPI specification a bit,
   but seems like a obvious extension)
 - The user can overwrite it with a new additionals_cpus=NUM option
 - Otherwise use half of the available CPUs or 2, whatever is more.

[PATCH] i386/x86-64: Share interrupt vectors when there is a large number of interrupt sources

Here's a patch that builds on Natalie Protasevich's IRQ compression
patch and tries to work for MPS boots as well as ACPI.  It is meant for
a 4-node IBM x460 NUMA box, which was dying because it had interrupt
pins with GSI numbers > NR_IRQS and thus overflowed irq_desc.

The problem is that this system has 270 GSIs (which are 1:1 mapped with
I/O APIC RTEs) and an 8-node box would have 540.  This is much bigger
than NR_IRQS (224 for both i386 and x86_64).  Also, there aren't enough
vectors to go around.  There are about 190 usable vectors, not counting
the reserved ones and the unused vectors at 0x20 to 0x2F.  So, my patch
attempts to compress the GSI range and share vectors by sharing IRQs.

Andi Kleen [Sat, 5 Nov 2005 16:25:53 +0000]
[PATCH] x86_64: Add 4GB DMA32 zone

Add a new 4GB GFP_DMA32 zone between the GFP_DMA and GFP_NORMAL zones.

As a bit of historical background: when the x86-64 port
was originally designed we had some discussion if we should
use a 16MB DMA zone like i386 or a 4GB DMA zone like IA64 or
both. Both was ruled out at this point because it was in early
2.4 when VM is still quite shakey and had bad troubles even
dealing with one DMA zone.  We settled on the 16MB DMA zone mainly
because we worried about older soundcards and the floppy.

But this has always caused problems since then because
device drivers had trouble getting enough DMA able memory. These days
the VM works much better and the wide use of NUMA has proven
it can deal with many zones successfully.

So this patch adds both zones.

This helps drivers who need a lot of memory below 4GB because
their hardware is not accessing more (graphic drivers - proprietary
and free ones, video frame buffer drivers, sound drivers etc.).
Previously they could only use IOMMU+16MB GFP_DMA, which
was not enough memory.

Another common problem is that hardware who has full memory
addressing for >4GB misses it for some control structures in memory
(like transmit rings or other metadata).  They tended to allocate memory
in the 16MB GFP_DMA or the IOMMU/swiotlb then using pci_alloc_consistent,
but that can tie up a lot of precious 16MB GFPDMA/IOMMU/swiotlb memory
(even on AMD systems the IOMMU tends to be quite small) especially if you have
many devices.  With the new zone pci_alloc_consistent can just put
this stuff into memory below 4GB which works better.

One argument was still if the zone should be 4GB or 2GB. The main
motivation for 2GB would be an unnamed not so unpopular hardware
raid controller (mostly found in older machines from a particular four letter
company) who has a strange 2GB restriction in firmware. But
that one works ok with swiotlb/IOMMU anyways, so it doesn't really
need GFP_DMA32. I chose 4GB to be compatible with IA64 and because
it seems to be the most common restriction.

The new zone is so far added only for x86-64.

For other architectures who don't set up this
new zone nothing changes. Architectures can set a compatibility
define in Kconfig CONFIG_DMA_IS_DMA32 that will define GFP_DMA32
as GFP_DMA. Otherwise it's a nop because on 32bit architectures
it's normally not needed because GFP_NORMAL (=0) is DMA able
enough.

One problem is still that GFP_DMA means different things on different
architectures. e.g. some drivers used to have #ifdef ia64  use GFP_DMA
(trusting it to be 4GB) #elif __x86_64__ (use other hacks like
the swiotlb because 16MB is not enough) ... . This was quite
ugly and is now obsolete.

These should be now converted to use GFP_DMA32 unconditionally. I haven't done
this yet. Or best only use pci_alloc_consistent/dma_alloc_coherent
which will use GFP_DMA32 transparently.

Michael Ellerman [Fri, 11 Nov 2005 13:06:05 +0000]
[PATCH] powerpc: Turn cpu_irq_down into kexec_cpu_down

We currently have a ppc_md member called cpu_irq_down, which disables IRQs
for the cpu in question. The only caller of cpu_irq_down is the kexec code.

On pSeries we need to do more than just teardown IRQs at kexec time, so rename
the ppc_md member to kexec_cpu_down and expand it. The pSeries code needs to
know, and other platforms might too, whether we're doing a crash shutdown (ie.
panicking) or a regular kexec, so add a flag for that.

The pSeries implementation of kexec_cpu_down does an unregister VPA call, which
tells the Hypervisor to stop writing stuff into our pacas. Without this we can
get weird memory corruption bugs when we kexec, caused by the Hypervisor
writing into the first kernel's pacas which happens to be somewhere interesting
in the second kernel's memory.
