Jack Steiner [Wed, 30 Jul 2008 05:33:54 +0000]
GRU Driver: hardware data structures

This series of patches adds a driver for the SGI UV GRU.  The driver is
still in development but it currently compiles for both x86_64 & IA64.
All simple regression tests pass on IA64.  Although features remain to be
added, I'd like to start the process of getting the driver into the
kernel.  Additional kernel drivers will depend on services provide by the
GRU driver.

The GRU is a hardware resource located in the system chipset.  The GRU
contains memory that is mmaped into the user address space.  This memory
is used to communicate with the GRU to perform functions such as
load/store, scatter/gather, bcopy, AMOs, etc.  The GRU is directly
accessed by user instructions using user virtual addresses.  GRU
instructions (ex., bcopy) use user virtual addresses for operands.

The GRU contains a large TLB that is functionally very similar to
processor TLBs.  Because the external contains a TLB with user virtual
address, it requires callouts from the core VM system when certain types
of changes are made to the process page tables.  There are several MMUOPS
patches currently being discussed but none has been accepted into the
kernel.  The GRU driver is built using version V18 from Andrea Arcangeli.

This patch:

Contains the definitions of the hardware GRU data structures that are used
by the driver to manage the GRU.

11 years agortc-dev: stop periodic interrupts on device release
Tomas Janousek [Wed, 30 Jul 2008 05:33:51 +0000]
rtc-dev: stop periodic interrupts on device release

Solves http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11127

The old rtc.c driver did it and some drivers (like rtc-sh) do it in their
release function, though they should not -- because they should provide
the irq_set_state op and the rtc framework itself should care about it.
This patch makes it do so.

I am aware that some drivers, like rtc-sh, handle userspace PIE sets in
their ioctl op (instead of having the framework call the op), exporting
the irq_set_state op at the same time.  The logic in rtc_irq_set_state
should make sure it doesn't matter and the driver should not need to care
stopping periodic interrupts in its release routine any more.

The correct way, in my opinion, should be this:
1) The driver provides the irq_set_state op and does not care closing the
   interrupts in its release op.
2) If the driver does not provide the op and handles PIE in the ioctl op, it's
   reponsible for closing them in its release op.
3) Something similar for other IRQs, like UIE -- if there's no in-kernel API
   like irq_set_state, handle it in ioctl and release ops. The framework will
   be responsible either for everything or for nothing. (This will probably
   change later.)

Mathieu Desnoyers [Wed, 30 Jul 2008 05:33:31 +0000]
markers: fix markers read barrier for multiple probes

Paul pointed out two incorrect read barriers in the marker handler code in
the path where multiple probes are connected.  Those are ordering reads of
"ptype" (single or multi probe marker), "multi" array pointer, and "multi"
array data access.

It should be ordered like this :

read ptype
smp_rmb()
read multi array pointer
smp_read_barrier_depends()
access data referenced by multi array pointer

The code with a single probe connected (optimized case, does not have to
allocate an array) has correct memory ordering.

It applies to kernel 2.6.26.x, 2.6.25.x and linux-next.

cpuset: fix wrong calculation of relax domain level

When multiple cpusets are overlapping in their 'cpus' and hence they
form a single sched domain, the largest sched_relax_domain_level among
those should be used. But when top_cpuset's sched_load_balance is
set, its sched_relax_domain_level is used regardless other sub-cpusets'.

sticore: don't activate unsupported GSC STI cards on HPPA

On HPPA there exists some older GSC graphics cards, which need special
graphic-card-BIOS patching to become supported.  Since we don't have yet
implemented the patching, it's better to detect such cards in advance,
inform to the user that there are known problems and to not activate the
card.

Problematic GSC cards and BIOS versions are:
* Hyperdrive/Hyperbowl (A4071A) graphics card series:
   * ID = 0x2BCB015A (Version 8.04/8)
   * ID = 0x2BCB015A (Version 8.04/11)
* Thunder 1 VISUALIZE 48 card:
   * ID = 0x2F23E5FC (Version 8.05/9)
* Thunder 2 VISUALIZE 48 XP card:
   * ID = 0x2F8D570E (Version 8.05/12)
* Some Hyperion and ThunderHawk GSC cards

Linus Torvalds [Tue, 29 Jul 2008 00:54:21 +0000]
Fix 'get_user_pages_fast()' with non-page-aligned start address

Alexey Dobriyan reported trouble with LTP with the new fast-gup code,
and Johannes Weiner debugged it to non-page-aligned addresses, where the
new get_user_pages_fast() code would do all the wrong things, including
just traversing past the end of the requested area due to 'addr' never
matching 'end' exactly.

This is not a pretty fix, and we may actually want to move the alignment
into generic code, leaving just the core code per-arch, but Alexey
verified that the vmsplice01 LTP test doesn't crash with this.

11 years agolguest: turn Waker into a thread, not a process
Rusty Russell [Tue, 29 Jul 2008 14:58:38 +0000]
lguest: turn Waker into a thread, not a process

lguest uses a Waker process to break it out of the kernel (ie.
actually running the guest) when file descriptor needs attention.

Changing this from a process to a thread somewhat simplifies things:
it can directly access the fd_set of things to watch.  More
importantly, it means that the Waker can see Guest memory correctly,
so /dev/vring file descriptors will work as anticipated (the
alternative is to actually mmap MAP_SHARED, but you can't do that with
/dev/zero).

Eric Sandeen [Mon, 28 Jul 2008 22:46:39 +0000]
eCryptfs: use page_alloc not kmalloc to get a page of memory

With SLUB debugging turned on in 2.6.26, I was getting memory corruption
when testing eCryptfs.  The root cause turned out to be that eCryptfs was
doing kmalloc(PAGE_CACHE_SIZE); virt_to_page() and treating that as a nice
page-aligned chunk of memory.  But at least with SLUB debugging on, this
is not always true, and the page we get from virt_to_page does not
necessarily match the PAGE_CACHE_SIZE worth of memory we got from kmalloc.

My simple testcase was 2 loops doing "rm -f fileX; cp /tmp/fileX ." for 2
different multi-megabyte files.  With this change I no longer see the
corruption.

11 years agovfs: pagecache usage optimization for pagesize!=blocksize
Hisashi Hifumi [Mon, 28 Jul 2008 22:46:36 +0000]
vfs: pagecache usage optimization for pagesize!=blocksize

When we read some part of a file through pagecache, if there is a
pagecache of corresponding index but this page is not uptodate, read IO
is issued and this page will be uptodate.

I think this is good for pagesize == blocksize environment but there is
room for improvement on pagesize != blocksize environment.  Because in
this case a page can have multiple buffers and even if a page is not
uptodate, some buffers can be uptodate.

So I suggest that when all buffers which correspond to a part of a file
that we want to read are uptodate, use this pagecache and copy data from
this pagecache to user buffer even if a page is not uptodate.  This can
reduce read IO and improve system throughput.

I wrote a benchmark program and got result number with this program.

This benchmark do:

  1: mount and open a test file.

  2: create a 512MB file.

  3: close a file and umount.

  4: mount and again open a test file.

  5: pwrite randomly 300000 times on a test file.  offset is aligned
     by IO size(1024bytes).

  6: measure time of preading randomly 100000 times on a test file.

The result was:
2.6.26
        330 sec

2.6.26-patched
        226 sec

Arch:i386
Filesystem:ext3
Blocksize:1024 bytes
Memory: 1GB

On ext3/4, a file is written through buffer/block.  So random read/write
mixed workloads or random read after random write workloads are optimized
with this patch under pagesize != blocksize environment.  This test result
showed this.

The benchmark program is as follows:

important parts of the diff, which was to actually set the bus_num field
and add the relevant field to the platform data.

The previous commit 50f426b55d919dd017af35bb6a08753d1f262920 promised to
add a bus_num field, but failed to include the two hunks that added this
field to include/asm-arm/arch-s3c2410/spi.h and then pass it to the spi
core when creating the new master field in drivers/spi/spi_s3c24xx.c.

mpc52xx_psc_spi: fix block transfer

The block transfer routine in the mpc52xx psc spi driver misinterpret
the datasheet.  According to the processor datasheet the chipselect is
held as long as the EOF is not written.

Theoretically blocks of any sizes can be transferred in this way.  The
old routine however writes an EOF after every word, which has the size
of size_of_word.  This makes the transfer slow.

Also fixed some duplicate code.

11 years agommu-notifiers: core
Andrea Arcangeli [Mon, 28 Jul 2008 22:46:29 +0000]
mmu-notifiers: core

With KVM/GFP/XPMEM there isn't just the primary CPU MMU pointing to pages.
 There are secondary MMUs (with secondary sptes and secondary tlbs) too.
sptes in the kvm case are shadow pagetables, but when I say spte in
mmu-notifier context, I mean "secondary pte".  In GRU case there's no
actual secondary pte and there's only a secondary tlb because the GRU
secondary MMU has no knowledge about sptes and every secondary tlb miss
event in the MMU always generates a page fault that has to be resolved by
the CPU (this is not the case of KVM where the a secondary tlb miss will
walk sptes in hardware and it will refill the secondary tlb transparently
to software if the corresponding spte is present).  The same way
zap_page_range has to invalidate the pte before freeing the page, the spte
(and secondary tlb) must also be invalidated before any page is freed and
reused.

Currently we take a page_count pin on every page mapped by sptes, but that
means the pages can't be swapped whenever they're mapped by any spte
because they're part of the guest working set.  Furthermore a spte unmap
event can immediately lead to a page to be freed when the pin is released
(so requiring the same complex and relatively slow tlb_gather smp safe
logic we have in zap_page_range and that can be avoided completely if the
spte unmap event doesn't require an unpin of the page previously mapped in
the secondary MMU).

The mmu notifiers allow kvm/GRU/XPMEM to attach to the tsk->mm and know
when the VM is swapping or freeing or doing anything on the primary MMU so
that the secondary MMU code can drop sptes before the pages are freed,
avoiding all page pinning and allowing 100% reliable swapping of guest
physical address space.  Furthermore it avoids the code that teardown the
mappings of the secondary MMU, to implement a logic like tlb_gather in
zap_page_range that would require many IPI to flush other cpu tlbs, for
each fixed number of spte unmapped.

To make an example: if what happens on the primary MMU is a protection
downgrade (from writeable to wrprotect) the secondary MMU mappings will be
invalidated, and the next secondary-mmu-page-fault will call
get_user_pages and trigger a do_wp_page through get_user_pages if it
called get_user_pages with write=1, and it'll re-establishing an updated
spte or secondary-tlb-mapping on the copied page.  Or it will setup a
readonly spte or readonly tlb mapping if it's a guest-read, if it calls
get_user_pages with write=0.  This is just an example.

This allows to map any page pointed by any pte (and in turn visible in the
primary CPU MMU), into a secondary MMU (be it a pure tlb like GRU, or an
full MMU with both sptes and secondary-tlb like the shadow-pagetable layer
with kvm), or a remote DMA in software like XPMEM (hence needing of
schedule in XPMEM code to send the invalidate to the remote node, while no
need to schedule in kvm/gru as it's an immediate event like invalidating
primary-mmu pte).

At least for KVM without this patch it's impossible to swap guests
reliably.  And having this feature and removing the page pin allows
several other optimizations that simplify life considerably.

Dependencies:

1) mm_take_all_locks() to register the mmu notifier when the whole VM
   isn't doing anything with "mm".  This allows mmu notifier users to keep
   track if the VM is in the middle of the invalidate_range_begin/end
   critical section with an atomic counter incraese in range_begin and
   decreased in range_end.  No secondary MMU page fault is allowed to map
   any spte or secondary tlb reference, while the VM is in the middle of
   range_begin/end as any page returned by get_user_pages in that critical
   section could later immediately be freed without any further
   ->invalidate_page notification (invalidate_range_begin/end works on
   ranges and ->invalidate_page isn't called immediately before freeing
   the page).  To stop all page freeing and pagetable overwrites the
   mmap_sem must be taken in write mode and all other anon_vma/i_mmap
   locks must be taken too.

2) It'd be a waste to add branches in the VM if nobody could possibly
   run KVM/GRU/XPMEM on the kernel, so mmu notifiers will only enabled if
   CONFIG_KVM=m/y.  In the current kernel kvm won't yet take advantage of
   mmu notifiers, but this already allows to compile a KVM external module
   against a kernel with mmu notifiers enabled and from the next pull from
   kvm.git we'll start using them.  And GRU/XPMEM will also be able to
   continue the development by enabling KVM=m in their config, until they
   submit all GRU/XPMEM GPLv2 code to the mainline kernel.  Then they can
   also enable MMU_NOTIFIERS in the same way KVM does it (even if KVM=n).
   This guarantees nobody selects MMU_NOTIFIER=y if KVM and GRU and XPMEM
   are all =n.

The mmu_notifier_register call can fail because mm_take_all_locks may be
interrupted by a signal and return -EINTR.  Because mmu_notifier_reigster
is used when a driver startup, a failure can be gracefully handled.  Here
an example of the change applied to kvm to register the mmu notifiers.
Usually when a driver startups other allocations are required anyway and
-ENOMEM failure paths exists already.

 struct  kvm *kvm_arch_create_vm(void)
 {
        struct kvm *kvm = kzalloc(sizeof(struct kvm), GFP_KERNEL);
+       int err;

        if (!kvm)
                return ERR_PTR(-ENOMEM);

        INIT_LIST_HEAD(&kvm->arch.active_mmu_pages);

+       kvm->arch.mmu_notifier.ops = &kvm_mmu_notifier_ops;
+       err = mmu_notifier_register(&kvm->arch.mmu_notifier, current->mm);
+       if (err) {
+               kfree(kvm);
+               return ERR_PTR(err);
+       }
+
        return kvm;
 }

mmu_notifier_unregister returns void and it's reliable.

The patch also adds a few needed but missing includes that would prevent
kernel to compile after these changes on non-x86 archs (x86 didn't need
them by luck).

11 years agommu-notifiers: add mm_take_all_locks() operation
Andrea Arcangeli [Mon, 28 Jul 2008 22:46:26 +0000]
mmu-notifiers: add mm_take_all_locks() operation

mm_take_all_locks holds off reclaim from an entire mm_struct.  This allows
mmu notifiers to register into the mm at any time with the guarantee that
no mmu operation is in progress on the mm.

This operation locks against the VM for all pte/vma/mm related operations
that could ever happen on a certain mm.  This includes vmtruncate,
try_to_unmap, and all page faults.

The caller must take the mmap_sem in write mode before calling
mm_take_all_locks().  The caller isn't allowed to release the mmap_sem
until mm_drop_all_locks() returns.

mmap_sem in write mode is required in order to block all operations that
could modify pagetables and free pages without need of altering the vma
layout (for example populate_range() with nonlinear vmas).  It's also
needed in write mode to avoid new anon_vmas to be associated with existing
vmas.

A single task can't take more than one mm_take_all_locks() in a row or it
would deadlock.

mm_take_all_locks() and mm_drop_all_locks are expensive operations that
may have to take thousand of locks.

mm_take_all_locks() can fail if it's interrupted by signals.

When mmu_notifier_register returns, we must be sure that the driver is
notified if some task is in the middle of a vmtruncate for the 'mm' where
the mmu notifier was registered (mmu_notifier_invalidate_range_start/end
is run around the vmtruncation but mmu_notifier_register can run after
mmu_notifier_invalidate_range_start and before
mmu_notifier_invalidate_range_end).  Same problem for rmap paths.  And
we've to remove page pinning to avoid replicating the tlb_gather logic
inside KVM (and GRU doesn't work well with page pinning regardless of
needing tlb_gather), so without mm_take_all_locks when vmtruncate frees
the page, kvm would have no way to notice that it mapped into sptes a page
that is going into the freelist without a chance of any further
mmu_notifier notification.

tmpfs: fix kernel BUG in shmem_delete_inode

SuSE's insserve initscript ordering program hits kernel BUG at mm/shmem.c:814
on 2.6.26.  It's using posix_fadvise on directories, and the shmem_readpage
method added in 2.6.23 is letting POSIX_FADV_WILLNEED allocate useless pages
to a tmpfs directory, incrementing i_blocks count but never decrementing it.

Fix this by assigning shmem_aops (pointing to readpage and writepage and
set_page_dirty) only when it's needed, on a regular file or a long symlink.

ipwireless: fix compile failure

There's a brown paper bag compile failure introduced by this patch

    ipwireless: Preallocate received packet buffers with MRU size

Really, it can't ever have been even compile tested.  It looks like the
closing bracket is in the wrong place, so this is the fix.
