12 years agoreadahead: on-demand readahead logic
Fengguang Wu [Thu, 19 Jul 2007 08:48:01 +0000]
readahead: on-demand readahead logic

This is a minimal readahead algorithm that aims to replace the current one.
It is more flexible and reliable, while maintaining almost the same behavior
and performance.  Also it is full integrated with adaptive readahead.

It is designed to be called on demand:
- on a missing page, to do synchronous readahead
- on a lookahead page, to do asynchronous readahead

In this way it eliminated the awkward workarounds for cache hit/miss,
readahead thrashing, retried read, and unaligned read.  It also adopts the
data structure introduced by adaptive readahead, parameterizes readahead
pipelining with `lookahead_index', and reduces the current/ahead windows to
one single window.

HEURISTICS

The logic deals with four cases:

- sequential-next
found a consistent readahead window, so push it forward

- random
standalone small read, so read as is

- sequential-first
create a new readahead window for a sequential/oversize request

- lookahead-clueless
hit a lookahead page not associated with the readahead window,
so create a new readahead window and ramp it up

In each case, three parameters are determined:

- readahead index: where the next readahead begins
- readahead size:  how much to readahead
- lookahead size:  when to do the next readahead (for pipelining)

BEHAVIORS

The old behaviors are maximally preserved for trivial sequential/random reads.
Notable changes are:

- It no longer imposes strict sequential checks.
  It might help some interleaved cases, and clustered random reads.
  It does introduce risks of a random lookahead hit triggering an
  unexpected readahead. But in general it is more likely to do good
  than to do evil.

- Interleaved reads are supported in a minimal way.
  Their chances of being detected and proper handled are still low.

- Readahead thrashings are better handled.
  The current readahead leads to tiny average I/O sizes, because it
  never turn back for the thrashed pages.  They have to be fault in
  by do_generic_mapping_read() one by one.  Whereas the on-demand
  readahead will redo readahead for them.

OVERHEADS

The new code reduced the overheads of

- excessively calling the readahead routine on small sized reads
  (the current readahead code insists on seeing all requests)

- doing a lot of pointless page-cache lookups for small cached files
  (the current readahead only turns itself off after 256 cache hits,
  unfortunately most files are < 1MB, so never see that chance)

That accounts for speedup of
- 0.3% on 1-page sequential reads on sparse file
- 1.2% on 1-page cache hot sequential reads
- 3.2% on 256-page cache hot sequential reads
- 1.3% on cache hot `tar /lib`

However, it does introduce one extra page-cache lookup per cache miss, which
impacts random reads slightly. That's 1% overheads for 1-page random reads on
sparse file.

PERFORMANCE

The basic benchmark setup is
- 2.6.20 kernel with on-demand readahead
- 1MB max readahead size
- 2.9GHz Intel Core 2 CPU
- 2GB memory
- 160G/8M Hitachi SATA II 7200 RPM disk

The benchmarks show that
- it maintains the same performance for trivial sequential/random reads
- sysbench/OLTP performance on MySQL gains up to 8%
- performance on readahead thrashing gains up to 3 times

That's interesting results. Some investigations show that
- MySQL is accessing the db file non-uniformly: some parts are
  more hot than others
- It is mostly doing 4-page random reads, and sometimes doing two
  reads in a row, the latter one triggers a 16-page readahead.
- The on-demand readahead leaves many lookahead pages (flagged
  PG_readahead) there. Many of them will be hit, and trigger
  more readahead pages. Which might save more seeks.
- Naturally, the readahead windows tend to lie in hot areas,
  and the lookahead pages in hot areas is more likely to be hit.
- The more overall read density, the more possible gain.

That also explains the adaptive readahead tricks for clustered random reads.

12 years agoreadahead: add look-ahead support to __do_page_cache_readahead()
Fengguang Wu [Thu, 19 Jul 2007 08:47:57 +0000]
readahead: add look-ahead support to __do_page_cache_readahead()

Add look-ahead support to __do_page_cache_readahead().

It works by
- mark the Nth backwards page with PG_readahead,
(which instructs the page's first reader to invoke readahead)
- and only do the marking for newly allocated pages.
(to prevent blindly doing readahead on already cached pages)

Look-ahead is a technique to achieve I/O pipelining:

While the application is working through a chunk of cached pages, the kernel
reads-ahead the next chunk of pages _before_ time of need.  It effectively
hides low level I/O latencies to high level applications.

12 years agoAvoid too many remote cpu references due to /proc/stat
Ravikiran G Thirumalai [Thu, 19 Jul 2007 08:47:53 +0000]
Avoid too many remote cpu references due to /proc/stat

Optimize show_stat to collect per-irq information just once.

On x86_64, with newer kernel versions, kstat_irqs is a bit of a problem.
On every call to kstat_irqs, the process brings in per-cpu data from all
online cpus.  Doing this for NR_IRQS, which is now 256 + 32 * NR_CPUS
results in (256+32*63) * 63 remote cpu references on a 64 cpu config.
Considering the fact that we already compute this value per-cpu, we can
save on the remote references as below.

Rafael J. Wysocki [Thu, 19 Jul 2007 08:47:37 +0000]
PM: prevent frozen user mode helpers from failing the freezing of tasks

At present, if a user mode helper is running while
usermodehelper_pm_callback() is executed, the helper may be frozen and the
completion in call_usermodehelper_exec() won't be completed until user
space processes are thawed.  As a result, the freezing of kernel threads
may fail, which is not desirable.

Prevent this from happening by introducing a counter of running user mode
helpers and allowing usermodehelper_pm_callback() to succeed for action =
PM_HIBERNATION_PREPARE or action = PM_SUSPEND_PREPARE only if there are no
helpers running.  [Namely, usermodehelper_pm_callback() waits for at most

12 years agoFreezer: avoid freezing kernel threads prematurely
Rafael J. Wysocki [Thu, 19 Jul 2007 08:47:33 +0000]
Freezer: avoid freezing kernel threads prematurely

Kernel threads should not have TIF_FREEZE set when user space processes are
being frozen, since otherwise some of them might be frozen prematurely.
To prevent this from happening we can (1) make exit_mm() unset TIF_FREEZE
unconditionally just after clearing tsk->mm and (2) make try_to_freeze_tasks()
check if p->mm is different from zero and PF_BORROWED_MM is unset in p->flags
when user space processes are to be frozen.

Namely, when user space processes are being frozen, we only should set
TIF_FREEZE for tasks that have p->mm different from NULL and don't have
PF_BORROWED_MM set in p->flags.  For this reason task_lock() must be used to
prevent try_to_freeze_tasks() from racing with use_mm()/unuse_mm(), in which
p->mm and p->flags.PF_BORROWED_MM are changed under task_lock(p).  Also, we
need to prevent the following scenario from happening:

* daemonize() is called by a task spawned from a user space code path
* freezer checks if the task has p->mm set and the result is positive
* task enters exit_mm() and clears its TIF_FREEZE
* freezer sets TIF_FREEZE for the task
* task calls try_to_freeze() and goes to the refrigerator, which is wrong at
  that point

This requires us to acquire task_lock(p) before p->flags.PF_BORROWED_MM and
p->mm are examined and release it after TIF_FREEZE is set for p (or it turns
out that TIF_FREEZE should not be set).

The "Finish" label in hibernation_restore() is moved, because device_suspend()
resumes devices if the suspending of them fails and the restore code ordering
should reflect the hibernation code ordering.

12 years agoswsusp: introduce restore platform operations
Rafael J. Wysocki [Thu, 19 Jul 2007 08:47:30 +0000]
swsusp: introduce restore platform operations

At least on some machines it is necessary to prepare the ACPI firmware for the
restoration of the system memory state from the hibernation image if the
"platform" mode of hibernation has been used.  Namely, in that cases we need
to disable the GPEs before replacing the "boot" kernel with the "frozen"
kernel (cf.  http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=7887).  After the
restore they will be re-enabled by hibernation_ops->finish(), but if the
restore fails, they have to be re-enabled by the restore code explicitly.

For this purpose we can introduce two additional hibernation operations,
called pre_restore() and restore_cleanup() and call them from the restore code
path.  Still, they should be called if the "platform" mode of hibernation has
been used, so we need to pass the information about the hibernation mode from
the "frozen" kernel to the "boot" kernel in the image header.

Apparently, we can't drop the disabling of GPEs before the restore because of
Bug #7887 .   We also can't do it unconditionally, because the GPEs wouldn't
have been enabled after a successful restore if the suspend had been done in
the 'shutdown' or 'reboot' mode.

In principle we could (and probably should) unconditionally disable the GPEs
before each snapshot creation *and* before the restore, but then we'd have to
unconditionally enable them after the snapshot creation as well as after the
restore (or restore failure)   Still, for this purpose we'd need to modify
acpi_enter_sleep_state_prep() and acpi_leave_sleep_state() and we'd have to
introduce some mechanism synchronizing the disablind/enabling of the GPEs with
the device drivers' .suspend()/.resume() routines and with
disable_/enable_nonboot_cpus().   However, this would have affected the
suspend (ie.  s2ram) code as well as the hibernation, which I'd like to avoid
in this patch series.

12 years agoswsusp: remove incorrect code from user.c
Rafael J. Wysocki [Thu, 19 Jul 2007 08:47:28 +0000]
swsusp: remove incorrect code from user.c

In the face of the recent change of suspend code ordering (cf.
http://marc.info/?l=linux-acpi&m=117938245931603&w=2) we should also modify
the code ordering in swsusp so that hibernation_ops->prepare() is executed
after device_suspend().

However, for this purpose it seems reasonable to eliminate the code
duplication between kernel/power/disk.c and kernel/power/user.c first.  By
eliminating it we can reduce the size of user.c quite substantially and remove
the maintenance difficulty with making essentially the same changes in two
different places.

Moreover, we should also remove the calls to "platform" functions from the
restore code path, since it doesn't carry out any power transition of the
system, but we generally need to disable the GPEs before the restore if the
'platform' hibernation mode has been used.  To do this, we can introduce two
new hibernation_ops to be used in the restore code.

This patch:

Make the code hibernation code in kernel/power/user.c be functionally
equivalent to the corresponding code in kernel/power/disk.c , as it should be.

The calls to the platform functions removed by this patch are incorrect.  They
should be replaced with some other "platform" invocations that will be
introduced in one of the subsequent patches.

12 years agoonly allow nonlinear vmas for ram backed filesystems
Miklos Szeredi [Thu, 19 Jul 2007 08:47:24 +0000]
only allow nonlinear vmas for ram backed filesystems

page_mkclean() doesn't re-protect ptes for non-linear mappings, so a later
re-dirty through such a mapping will not generate a fault, PG_dirty will
not reflect the dirty state and the dirty count will be skewed.  This
implies that msync() is also currently broken for nonlinear mappings.

The easiest solution is to emulate remap_file_pages on non-linear mappings
with simple mmap() for non ram-backed filesystems.  Applications continue
to work (albeit slower), as long as the number of remappings remain below
the maximum vma count.

However all currently known real uses of non-linear mappings are for ram
backed filesystems, which this patch doesn't affect.

12 years agomm: fault feedback #1
Nick Piggin [Thu, 19 Jul 2007 08:47:03 +0000]
mm: fault feedback #1

Change ->fault prototype.  We now return an int, which contains
VM_FAULT_xxx code in the low byte, and FAULT_RET_xxx code in the next byte.
 FAULT_RET_ code tells the VM whether a page was found, whether it has been
locked, and potentially other things.  This is not quite the way he wanted
it yet, but that's changed in the next patch (which requires changes to
arch code).

This means we no longer set VM_CAN_INVALIDATE in the vma in order to say
that a page is locked which requires filemap_nopage to go away (because we
can no longer remain backward compatible without that flag), but we were
going to do that anyway.

struct fault_data is renamed to struct vm_fault as Linus asked. address
is now a void __user * that we should firmly encourage drivers not to use
without really good reason.

The page is now returned via a page pointer in the vm_fault struct.

12 years agomm: merge populate and nopage into fault (fixes nonlinear)
Nick Piggin [Thu, 19 Jul 2007 08:46:59 +0000]
mm: merge populate and nopage into fault (fixes nonlinear)

Nonlinear mappings are (AFAIKS) simply a virtual memory concept that encodes
the virtual address -> file offset differently from linear mappings.

->populate is a layering violation because the filesystem/pagecache code
should need to know anything about the virtual memory mapping.  The hitch here
is that the ->nopage handler didn't pass down enough information (ie.  pgoff).
 But it is more logical to pass pgoff rather than have the ->nopage function
calculate it itself anyway (because that's a similar layering violation).

Having the populate handler install the pte itself is likewise a nasty thing
to be doing.

This patch introduces a new fault handler that replaces ->nopage and
->populate and (later) ->nopfn.  Most of the old mechanism is still in place
so there is a lot of duplication and nice cleanups that can be removed if
everyone switches over.

The rationale for doing this in the first place is that nonlinear mappings are
subject to the pagefault vs invalidate/truncate race too, and it seemed stupid
to duplicate the synchronisation logic rather than just consolidate the two.

After this patch, MAP_NONBLOCK no longer sets up ptes for pages present in
pagecache.  Seems like a fringe functionality anyway.

NOPAGE_REFAULT is removed.  This should be implemented with ->fault, and no
users have hit mainline yet.

12 years agomm: fix fault vs invalidate race for linear mappings
Nick Piggin [Thu, 19 Jul 2007 08:46:57 +0000]
mm: fix fault vs invalidate race for linear mappings

Fix the race between invalidate_inode_pages and do_no_page.

Andrea Arcangeli identified a subtle race between invalidation of pages from
pagecache with userspace mappings, and do_no_page.

The issue is that invalidation has to shoot down all mappings to the page,
before it can be discarded from the pagecache.  Between shooting down ptes to
a particular page, and actually dropping the struct page from the pagecache,
do_no_page from any process might fault on that page and establish a new
mapping to the page just before it gets discarded from the pagecache.

The most common case where such invalidation is used is in file truncation.
This case was catered for by doing a sort of open-coded seqlock between the
file's i_size, and its truncate_count.

Truncation will decrease i_size, then increment truncate_count before
unmapping userspace pages; do_no_page will read truncate_count, then find the
page if it is within i_size, and then check truncate_count under the page
table lock and back out and retry if it had subsequently been changed (ptl
will serialise against unmapping, and ensure a potentially updated
truncate_count is actually visible).

Complexity and documentation issues aside, the locking protocol fails in the
case where we would like to invalidate pagecache inside i_size.  do_no_page
can come in anytime and filemap_nopage is not aware of the invalidation in
progress (as it is when it is outside i_size).  The end result is that
dangling (->mapping == NULL) pages that appear to be from a particular file
may be mapped into userspace with nonsense data.  Valid mappings to the same
place will see a different page.

Andrea implemented two working fixes, one using a real seqlock, another using
a page->flags bit.  He also proposed using the page lock in do_no_page, but
that was initially considered too heavyweight.  However, it is not a global or
per-file lock, and the page cacheline is modified in do_no_page to increment
_count and _mapcount anyway, so a further modification should not be a large
performance hit.  Scalability is not an issue.

This patch implements this latter approach.  ->nopage implementations return
with the page locked if it is possible for their underlying file to be
invalidated (in that case, they must set a special vm_flags bit to indicate
so).  do_no_page only unlocks the page after setting up the mapping
completely.  invalidation is excluded because it holds the page lock during
invalidation of each page (and ensures that the page is not mapped while
holding the lock).

This also allows significant simplifications in do_no_page, because we have
the page locked in the right place in the pagecache from the start.

Define an nfs setlease method that just returns -EINVAL.

them in the presence of the "nolock" mount option.

12 years agolocks: provide a file lease method enabling cluster-coherent leases
J. Bruce Fields [Tue, 14 Nov 2006 20:51:40 +0000]
locks: provide a file lease method enabling cluster-coherent leases

Currently leases are only kept locally, so there's no way for a distributed
filesystem to enforce them against multiple clients.  We're particularly
interested in the case of nfsd exporting a cluster filesystem, in which
case nfsd needs cluster-coherent leases in order to implement delegations
correctly.

Also add some documentation.

12 years agolocks: rename lease functions to reflect locks.c conventions
J. Bruce Fields [Thu, 7 Jun 2007 21:09:49 +0000]
locks: rename lease functions to reflect locks.c conventions

We've been using the convention that vfs_foo is the function that calls
a filesystem-specific foo method if it exists, or falls back on a
generic method if it doesn't; thus vfs_foo is what is called when some
other part of the kernel (normally lockd or nfsd) wants to get a lock,
whereas foo is what filesystems call to use the underlying local
functionality as part of their lock implementation.

So rename setlease to vfs_setlease (which will call a
filesystem-specific setlease after a later patch) and __setlease to
setlease.

Also, vfs_setlease need only be GPL-exported as long as it's only needed
by lockd and nfsd.

12 years agoUIO: Hilscher CIF card driver
Hans-Jürgen Koch [Fri, 2 Mar 2007 12:03:12 +0000]
UIO: Hilscher CIF card driver

this is a patch that adds support for Hilscher CIF DeviceNet and
Profibus cards. I tested it on a Kontron CPX board, and Thomas reviewed
it.

You can find the user space part here:

http://www.osadl.org/projects/downloads/UIO/user/cif-0.1.0.tar.gz

Notes: cif_api.c is the main file you want to look at. It contains the
functions to open, close, mmap and so on. cif_dps.c adds functions
specific to Profibus cards, and cif_dn.c contains functions for
DeviceNet cards.  cif.c is a universal playground, it's just a small
test program.  The user space part of this UIO driver is still work in
progress, and not everything is tested yet. At the moment, the thread in
cif_api.c contains some code that artificially makes the card generate
interrupts, this was added for testing and will be removed later. But
the driver already contains all the functions needed for useful
operation, so it gives a good idea of how such a thing looks like.

For comparison, here's what you get from the manufacturer
(www.hilscher.com) when you ask for a Linux 2.6 driver:

http://www.tglx.de/private/hjk/cif-orig-2.6.tar.bz2

12 years agosysfs: cosmetic clean up on node creation failure paths
Tejun Heo [Wed, 18 Jul 2007 07:38:11 +0000]
sysfs: cosmetic clean up on node creation failure paths

Node addition failure is detected by testing return value of
sysfs_addfm_finish() which returns the number of added and removed
nodes.  As the function is called as the last step of addition right
on top of error handling block, the if blocks looked like the
following.

if (sysfs_addrm_finish(&acxt))
success handling, usually return;
/* fall through to error handling */

This is the opposite of usual convention in sysfs and makes the code
difficult to understand.  This patch inverts the test and makes those
blocks look more like others.

dev_vdbg(), available with -DVERBOSE_DEBUG

This defines a dev_vdbg() call, which is enabled with -DVERBOSE_DEBUG.
When enabled, dev_vdbg() acts just like dev_dbg().  When disabled, it is a
NOP ...  just like dev_dbg() without -DDEBUG.  The specific code was moved
out of a USB patch, but lots of drivers have similar support.

That is, code can now be written to use an additional level of debug
output, selected at compile time.  Many driver authors have found this
idiom to be very useful.  A typical usage model is for "normal" debug
messages to focus on fault paths and not be very "chatty", so that those
messages can be left on during normal operation without much of a
performance or syslog load.  On the other hand "verbose" messages would be
noisy enough that they wouldn't normally be enabled; they might even affect
timings enough to change system or driver behavior.

debugfs: remove rmdir() non-empty complaint

Hi,

This patch kills the pointless debugfs rmdir() printk() when called on a
non-empty directory. blktrace will sometimes have to call it a few times
when forcefully ending a trace, which polutes the log with pointless
warnings.

Rationale:

- It's more code to work-around this "problem" in the debugfs users, and
  you would have to add code to check for empty directories to do so (or
  assume that debugfs is using simple_ helpers, but that would be a
  layering violation).

- Other rmdir() implementations don't complain about something this
  silly.

12 years agoFix RGMII-ID handling in gianfar

Fix RGMII-ID handling in gianfar

The TSEC/eTSEC can detect the interface to the PHY automatically,
but it isn't able to detect whether the RGMII connection needs internal
delay.  So we need to detect that change in the device tree, propagate
it to the platform data, and then check it if we're in RGMII.  This fixes
a bug on the 8641D HPCN board where the Vitesse PHY doesn't use the delay
for RGMII.

Fix Vitesse RGMII-ID support

The Vitesse PHY on the 8641D needs to be set up with internal delay to
work in RGMII mode.  So we add skew when it is set to RGMII_ID mode.

12 years agoAdd phy-connection-type to gianfar nodes
Andy Fleming [Tue, 10 Jul 2007 22:28:49 +0000]
Add phy-connection-type to gianfar nodes

The TSEC/eTSEC automatically detect their PHY interface type, unless
the type is RGMII-ID (RGMII with internal delay).  In that situation,
it just detects RGMII.  In order to fix this, we need to pass in rgmii-id
if that is the connection type.

12 years agoFix Vitesse 824x PHY interrupt acking
Andy Fleming [Tue, 10 Jul 2007 21:42:04 +0000]
Fix Vitesse 824x PHY interrupt acking

The Vitesse 824x PHY doesn't allow an interrupt to be cleared if
the mask bit for that interrupt isn't set.  This means that the PHY
Lib's order of handling interrupts (disable, then clear) breaks on this
PHY.  However, clearing then disabling the interrupt opens up the code
for a silly race condition.  So rather than change the PHY Lib, we change
the Vitesse driver so it always clears interrupts before disabling them.
Further, the ack function only clears the interrupt if interrupts are
enabled.

12 years agoISDN HiSax: uninitialized return in hisax_cs_setup

ISDN HiSax: uninitialized return in hisax_cs_setup

Coverity (1792) spotted a possibly uninitialized return value in case of
kmalloc() failure:

1116 static int hisax_cs_setup(int cardnr, struct IsdnCard *card,
1117                           struct IsdnCardState *cs)
1119         int ret;
1120
1121         if (!(cs->rcvbuf = kmalloc(MAX_DFRAME_LEN_L1, GFP_ATOMIC))) {
1122                 printk(KERN_WARNING "HiSax: No memory for isac rcvbuf\n");
1123                 ll_unload(cs);
1124                 goto outf_cs;
...
1165 outf_cs:
1166         kfree(cs);
1167         card->cs = NULL;
1168         return ret;

The straightforward solution would be to just add the missing
initialization but hardcoding the return value in the out_cs branch
(only taken on failure) seems to work just as well and it allows killing
a couple of other lines too.
