Stefan Richter [Thu, 19 Aug 2010 21:13:43 +0000]
Documentation: kernel-locking: mutex_trylock cannot be used in interrupt context

Chapter 6 is right about mutex_trylock, but chapter 10 wasn't.  This error
was introduced during semaphore-to-mutex conversion of the Unreliable
guide.  :-)

If user context which performs mutex_lock() or mutex_trylock() is
preempted by interrupt context which performs mutex_trylock() on the same
mutex instance, a deadlock occurs.  This is because these functions do not
disable local IRQs when they operate on mutex->wait_lock.

9 years agooom: __task_cred() need rcu_read_lock()
KOSAKI Motohiro [Thu, 19 Aug 2010 21:13:39 +0000]
oom: __task_cred() need rcu_read_lock()

dump_tasks() needs to hold the RCU read lock around its access of the
target task's UID.  To this end it should use task_uid() as it only needs
that one thing from the creds.

The fact that dump_tasks() holds tasklist_lock is insufficient to prevent the
target process replacing its credentials on another CPU.

Then, this patch change to call rcu_read_lock() explicitly.

x86, hotplug: Serialize CPU hotplug to avoid bringup concurrency issues

When testing cpu hotplug code on 32-bit we kept hitting the "CPU%d:
Stuck ??" message due to multiple cores concurrently accessing the
cpu_callin_mask, among others.

Since these codepaths are not protected from concurrent access due to
the fact that there's no sane reason for making an already complex
code unnecessarily more complex - we hit the issue only when insanely
switching cores off- and online - serialize hotplugging cores on the

9 years agox86-32: Separate 1:1 pagetables from swapper_pg_dir
Joerg Roedel [Mon, 16 Aug 2010 12:38:33 +0000]
x86-32: Separate 1:1 pagetables from swapper_pg_dir

This patch fixes machine crashes which occur when heavily exercising the
CPU hotplug codepaths on a 32-bit kernel. These crashes are caused by
AMD Erratum 383 and result in a fatal machine check exception. Here's
the scenario:

1. On 32-bit, the swapper_pg_dir page table is used as the initial page
table for booting a secondary CPU.

2. To make this work, swapper_pg_dir needs a direct mapping of physical
memory in it (the low mappings). By adding those low, large page (2M)
mappings (PAE kernel), we create the necessary conditions for Erratum
383 to occur.

3. Other CPUs which do not participate in the off- and onlining game may
use swapper_pg_dir while the low mappings are present (when leave_mm is
called). For all steps below, the CPU referred to is a CPU that is using
swapper_pg_dir, and not the CPU which is being onlined.

4. The presence of the low mappings in swapper_pg_dir can result
in TLB entries for addresses below __PAGE_OFFSET to be established
speculatively. These TLB entries are marked global and large.

5. When the CPU with such TLB entry switches to another page table, this
TLB entry remains because it is global.

6. The process then generates an access to an address covered by the
above TLB entry but there is a permission mismatch - the TLB entry
covers a large global page not accessible to userspace.

7. Due to this permission mismatch a new 4kb, user TLB entry gets
established. Further, Erratum 383 provides for a small window of time
where both TLB entries are present. This results in an uncorrectable
machine check exception signalling a TLB multimatch which panics the
machine.

There are two ways to fix this issue:

        1. Always do a global TLB flush when a new cr3 is loaded and the
        old page table was swapper_pg_dir. I consider this a hack hard
        to understand and with performance implications

        2. Do not use swapper_pg_dir to boot secondary CPUs like 64-bit
        does.

This patch implements solution 2. It introduces a trampoline_pg_dir
which has the same layout as swapper_pg_dir with low_mappings. This page
table is used as the initial page table of the booting CPU. Later in the
bringup process, it switches to swapper_pg_dir and does a global TLB
flush. This fixes the crashes in our test cases.

-v2: switch to swapper_pg_dir right after entering start_secondary() so
that we are able to access percpu data which might not be mapped in the
trampoline page table.

fs: brlock vfsmount_lock

fs: brlock vfsmount_lock

Use a brlock for the vfsmount lock. It must be taken for write whenever
modifying the mount hash or associated fields, and may be taken for read when
performing mount hash lookups.

A new lock is added for the mnt-id allocator, so it doesn't need to take
the heavy vfsmount write-lock.

The number of atomics should remain the same for fastpath rlock cases, though
code would be slightly slower due to per-cpu access. Scalability is not not be
much improved in common cases yet, due to other locks (ie. dcache_lock) getting
in the way. However path lookups crossing mountpoints should be one case where
scalability is improved (currently requiring the global lock).

The slowpath is slower due to use of brlock. On a 64 core, 64 socket, 32 node
Altix system (high latency to remote nodes), a simple umount microbenchmark
(mount --bind mnt mnt2 ; umount mnt2 loop 1000 times), before this patch it
took 6.8s, afterwards took 7.1s, about 5% slower.

9 years agofs: scale files_lock
Nick Piggin [Tue, 17 Aug 2010 18:37:38 +0000]
fs: scale files_lock

fs: scale files_lock

Improve scalability of files_lock by adding per-cpu, per-sb files lists,
protected with an lglock. The lglock provides fast access to the per-cpu lists
to add and remove files. It also provides a snapshot of all the per-cpu lists
(although this is very slow).

One difficulty with this approach is that a file can be removed from the list
by another CPU. We must track which per-cpu list the file is on with a new
variale in the file struct (packed into a hole on 64-bit archs). Scalability
could suffer if files are frequently removed from different cpu's list.

However loads with frequent removal of files imply short interval between
adding and removing the files, and the scheduler attempts to avoid moving
processes too far away. Also, even in the case of cross-CPU removal, the
hardware has much more opportunity to parallelise cacheline transfers with N
cachelines than with 1.

A worst-case test of 1 CPU allocating files subsequently being freed by N CPUs
degenerates to contending on a single lock, which is no worse than before. When
more than one CPU are allocating files, even if they are always freed by
different CPUs, there will be more parallelism than the single-lock case.

Testing results:

On a 2 socket, 8 core opteron, I measure the number of times the lock is taken
to remove the file, the number of times it is removed by the same CPU that
added it, and the number of times it is removed by the same node that added it.

Booting:    locks=  25049 cpu-hits=  23174 (92.5%) node-hits=  23945 (95.6%)
kbuild -j16 locks=2281913 cpu-hits=2208126 (96.8%) node-hits=2252674 (98.7%)
dbench 64   locks=4306582 cpu-hits=4287247 (99.6%) node-hits=4299527 (99.8%)

So a file is removed from the same CPU it was added by over 90% of the time.
It remains within the same node 95% of the time.

Tim Chen ran some numbers for a 64 thread Nehalem system performing a compile.

So significantly less CPU time spent in kernel code, higher idle time and
slightly higher throughput.

Single threaded performance difference was within the noise of microbenchmarks.
That is not to say penalty does not exist, the code is larger and more memory

This patch introduces "local-global" locks (lglocks). These can be used to:

- Provide fast exclusive access to per-CPU data, with exclusive access to
  another CPU's data allowed but possibly subject to contention, and to provide
  very slow exclusive access to all per-CPU data.
- Or to provide very fast and scalable read serialisation, and to provide
  very slow exclusive serialisation of data (not necessarily per-CPU data).

Brlocks are also implemented as a short-hand notation for the latter use
case.

Thanks to Paul for local/global naming convention.

9 years agotty: fix fu_list abuse
Nick Piggin [Tue, 17 Aug 2010 18:37:36 +0000]
tty: fix fu_list abuse

tty: fix fu_list abuse

tty code abuses fu_list, which causes a bug in remount,ro handling.

If a tty device node is opened on a filesystem, then the last link to the inode
removed, the filesystem will be allowed to be remounted readonly. This is
because fs_may_remount_ro does not find the 0 link tty inode on the file sb
list (because the tty code incorrectly removed it to use for its own purpose).
This can result in a filesystem with errors after it is marked "clean".

Taking idea from Christoph's initial patch, allocate a tty private struct
at file->private_data and put our required list fields in there, linking
file and tty. This makes tty nodes behave the same way as other device nodes
and avoid meddling with the vfs, and avoids this bug.

The error handling is not trivial in the tty code, so for this bugfix, I take
the simple approach of using __GFP_NOFAIL and don't worry about memory errors.
This is not a problem because our allocator doesn't fail small allocs as a rule
anyway. So proper error handling is left as an exercise for tty hackers.

[ Arguably filesystem's device inode would ideally be divorced from the
driver's pseudo inode when it is opened, but in practice it's not clear whether
that will ever be worth implementing. ]

fs: remove extra lookup in __lookup_hash

fs: remove extra lookup in __lookup_hash

Optimize lookup for create operations, where no dentry should often be
common-case. In cases where it is not, such as unlink, the added overhead
is much smaller than the removed.

Also, move comments about __d_lookup racyness to the __d_lookup call site.
d_lookup is intuitive; __d_lookup is what needs commenting. So in that same
vein, add kerneldoc comments to __d_lookup and clean up some of the comments:

- We are interested in how the RCU lookup works here, particularly with
  renames. Make that explicit, and point to the document where it is explained
  in more detail.
- RCU is pretty standard now, and macros make implementations pretty mindless.
  If we want to know about RCU barrier details, we look in RCU code.
- Delete some boring legacy comments because we don't care much about how the
  code used to work, more about the interesting parts of how it works now. So
  comments about lazy LRU may be interesting, but would better be done in the
  LRU or refcount management code.

fs: fs_struct rwlock to spinlock

fs: fs_struct rwlock to spinlock

struct fs_struct.lock is an rwlock with the read-side used to protect root and
pwd members while taking references to them. Taking a reference to a path
typically requires just 2 atomic ops, so the critical section is very small.
Parallel read-side operations would have cacheline contention on the lock, the
dentry, and the vfsmount cachelines, so the rwlock is unlikely to ever give a
real parallelism increase.

Replace it with a spinlock to avoid one or two atomic operations in typical
path lookup fastpath.

fs: fix do_lookup false negative

fs: fix do_lookup false negative

In do_lookup, if we initially find no dentry, we take the directory i_mutex and
re-check the lookup. If we find a dentry there, then we revalidate it if
needed. However if that revalidate asks for the dentry to be invalidated, we
return -ENOENT from do_lookup. What should happen instead is an attempt to
allocate and lookup a new dentry.

This is probably not noticed because it is rare. It is only reached if a
concurrent create races in first (in which case, the dentry probably won't be
invalidated anyway), or if the racy __d_lookup has failed due to a
false-negative (which is very rare).

Fix this by removing code and have it use the normal reval path.

These flags aren't real I/O types, but tell ll_rw_block to always

Instead add a new write_dirty_buffer helper that implements this semantic

code had a bug where it didn't promote WRITE_SYNC_PLUG properly, which
this patch fixes.

NeilBrown [Mon, 16 Aug 2010 08:09:31 +0000]
Update recovery_offset even when external metadata is used.

The update of ->recovery_offset in sync_sbs is appropriate even then external
metadata is in use.  However sync_sbs is only called when native
metadata is used.

So move that update in to the top of md_update_sb (which is the only
caller of sync_sbs) before the test on ->external.

This moves the update out of ->write_lock protection, but those fields
only need ->reconfig_mutex protection which they still have.

Also move the test on ->persistent up to where ->external is set as
for metadata update purposes they are the same.

Clear MD_CHANGE_DEVS and MD_CHANGE_CLEAN as they can only be confusing
if ->external is set or ->persistent isn't.

Finally move the update of ->utime down as it is only relevent (like
the ->events update) for native metadata.

Using a program like the following:

#include <sys/wait.h>

int main() {

if (id == 0) { sleep(1); exit(0); }
kill(id, SIGSTOP);
alarm(1);
waitid(P_PID, id, &infop, WCONTINUED);
return 0;
}

to call waitid() on a stopped process results in access to the child task's
credentials without the RCU read lock being held - which may be replaced in the
meantime - eliciting the following warning:

This is fixed by holding the RCU read lock in wait_task_continued() to ensure
that the task's current credentials aren't destroyed between us reading the
cred pointer and us reading the UID from those credentials.

Furthermore, protect wait_task_stopped() in the same way.

We don't need to keep holding the RCU read lock once we've read the UID from
the credentials as holding the RCU read lock doesn't stop the target task from
changing its creds under us - so the credentials may be outdated immediately
after we've read the pointer, lock or no lock.

David Howells [Tue, 17 Aug 2010 22:52:56 +0000]
Make do_execve() take a const filename pointer

Make do_execve() take a const filename pointer so that kernel_execve() compiles
correctly on ARM:

arch/arm/kernel/sys_arm.c:88: warning: passing argument 1 of 'do_execve' discards qualifiers from pointer target type

This also requires the argv and envp arguments to be consted twice, once for
the pointer array and once for the strings the array points to.  This is
because do_execve() passes a pointer to the filename (now const) to
copy_strings_kernel().  A simpler alternative would be to cast the filename
pointer in do_execve() when it's passed to copy_strings_kernel().

do_execve() may not change any of the strings it is passed as part of the argv
or envp lists as they are some of them in .rodata, so marking these strings as
const should be fine.

Further kernel_execve() and sys_execve() need to be changed to match.

This has been test built on x86_64, frv, arm and mips.

9 years agosparc64: Fix rwsem constant bug leading to hangs.
David S. Miller [Wed, 18 Aug 2010 00:09:53 +0000]
sparc64: Fix rwsem constant bug leading to hangs.

As noticed by Linus, it is critical that some of the
rwsem constants be signed.  Yet, hex constants are
unsigned unless explicitly casted or negated.

The most critical one is RWSEM_WAITING_BIAS.

This bug was exacerbated by commit
424acaaeb3a3932d64a9b4bd59df6cf72c22d8f3 ("rwsem: wake queued readers
when writer blocks on active read lock")

net sched: fix some kernel memory leaks

We leak at least 32bits of kernel memory to user land in tc dump,
because we dont init all fields (capab ?) of the dumped structure.

Use C99 initializers so that holes and non explicit fields are zeroed.

After commit 24b36f019 (netfilter: {ip,ip6,arp}_tables: dont block
bottom half more than necessary), lockdep can raise a warning
because we attempt to lock a spinlock with BH enabled, while
the same lock is usually locked by another cpu in a softirq context.

Disable again BH to avoid these lockdep warnings.

VIDEO: amba clcd: don't disable an already disabled clock

Fix the clock enable/disable tracking in the AMBA CLCD driver so
that the driver doesn't try to disable an already disabled clock,
thereby causing the clock (if shared) to become unbalanced.

This resolves a problem with CLCD on LPC32xx ARM platforms.
