arch: Implement local64_t

On 64bit, local_t is of size long, and thus we make local64_t an alias.
On 32bit, we fall back to atomic64_t. (architecture can provide optimized
32-bit version)

(This new facility is to be used by perf events optimizations.)

perf: Fix signed comparison in perf_adjust_period()

Frederic reported that frequency driven swevents didn't work properly
and even caused a division-by-zero error.

It turns out there are two bugs, the division-by-zero comes from a
failure to deal with that in perf_calculate_period().

The other was more interesting and turned out to be a wrong comparison
in perf_adjust_period(). The comparison was between an s64 and u64 and
got implicitly converted to an unsigned comparison. The problem is
that period_left is typically < 0, so it ended up being always true.

Cure this by making the local period variables s64.

perf buildid: add perfconfig option to specify buildid cache dir

This patch adds the ability to specify an alternate directory to store the
buildid cache (buildids, copy of binaries). By default, it is hardcoded to
$HOME/.debug. This directory contains immutable data. The layout of the
directory is such that no conflicts in filenames are possible. A modification
in a file, yields a different buildid and thus a different location in the
subdir hierarchy.

You may want to put the buildid cache elsewhere because of disk space
limitation or simply to share the cache between users. It is also useful for
remote collect vs. local analysis of profiles.

This patch adds a new config option to the perfconfig file.  Under the tag
'buildid', there is a dir option. For instance, if you have:

$ cat /etc/perfconfig
[buildid]
dir = /var/cache/perf-buildid

All buildids and binaries are be saved in the directory specified. The perf
record, buildid-list, buildid-cache, report, annotate, and archive commands
will it to pull information out.

The option can be set in the system-wide perfconfig file or in the
$HOME/.perfconfig file.

perf tools: Add the ability to specify list of cpus to monitor

This patch adds a -C option to stat, record, top to designate a list of CPUs to
monitor. CPUs can be specified as a comma-separated list or ranges, no space
allowed.

Examples:
$ perf record -a -C0-1,4-7 sleep 1
$ perf top -C0-4
$ perf stat -a -C1,2,3,4 sleep 1

With perf record in per-thread mode with inherit mode on, samples are collected
only when the thread runs on the designated CPUs.

The -C option does not turn on system-wide mode automatically.

10 years agoperf symbols: Set the DSO long name when using symbol_conf.vmlinux_name

perf symbols: Set the DSO long name when using symbol_conf.vmlinux_name

We need to set the long name to the name specified via, for instance,
'perf annotate --vmlinux /path/to/vmlinux', if not it will remain as
'[kernel.kallsyms]' and that will make annotate fail when passing this
as the vmlinux name in the call to objdump.

The way this is setup grew unwieldly and dso__load_vmlinux is the
function that should allocate space for the long name, with callers not
assuming that filenames should be allocated somehow by then (strdup,
dso__build_id_filename, etc).

For now this is the minimalistic patch, a proper fix for .36 will be
made.

10 years agotracing: Remove ftrace_preempt_disable/enable
Steven Rostedt [Thu, 3 Jun 2010 13:36:50 +0000]
tracing: Remove ftrace_preempt_disable/enable

The ftrace_preempt_disable/enable functions were to address a
recursive race caused by the function tracer. The function tracer
traces all functions which makes it easily susceptible to recursion.
One area was preempt_enable(). This would call the scheduler and
the schedulre would call the function tracer and loop.
(So was it thought).

The ftrace_preempt_disable/enable was made to protect against recursion
inside the scheduler by storing the NEED_RESCHED flag. If it was
set before the ftrace_preempt_disable() it would not call schedule
on ftrace_preempt_enable(), thinking that if it was set before then
it would have already scheduled unless it was already in the scheduler.

This worked fine except in the case of SMP, where another task would set
the NEED_RESCHED flag for a task on another CPU, and then kick off an
IPI to trigger it. This could cause the NEED_RESCHED to be saved at
ftrace_preempt_disable() but the IPI to arrive in the the preempt
disabled section. The ftrace_preempt_enable() would not call the scheduler
because the flag was already set before entring the section.

This bug would cause a missed preemption check and cause lower latencies.

Investigating further, I found that the recusion caused by the function
tracer was not due to schedule(), but due to preempt_schedule(). Now
that preempt_schedule is completely annotated with notrace, the recusion
no longer is an issue.

10 years agotracing/sched: Make preempt_schedule() notrace
Steven Rostedt [Thu, 3 Jun 2010 01:52:29 +0000]
tracing/sched: Make preempt_schedule() notrace

The function tracer code uses ftrace_preempt_disable() to disable
preemption instead of normal preempt_disable(). But there's a slight
race condition that may cause it to lose a preemption check.

This was made to keep the function tracer from recursing on itself
by disabling preemption then having the enable call the function tracer
again, causing infinite recursion.

The bug was assumed to happen if the call was just in schedule, but
this is incorrect. The bug is caused by preempt_schedule() which
is called by preempt_enable(). The calling of preempt_enable() when
NEED_RESCHED was set would call preempt_schedule() which would call
the function tracer again.

By making the preempt_schedule() and add_preempt_count() notrace
then this will prevent the inifinite recursion. This is because
the add_preempt_count() would stop the preempt_enable() in the
function tracer from calling preempt_schedule() again.

The sub_preempt_count() is also made notrace just to keep it
symmetric.

If both call ->disable, we get a double hlist_del_rcu() and trigger
a LIST_POISON2 dereference.

Since we don't actually need to stop/start a swevent to re-programm

perf buildid-list: Fix --with-hits event processing

When we use plain 'perf buildid-list' we use only what is in the buildid
table in the perf.data header. And those have absolute pathnames because
at 'perf record' time we used __perf_session__process_events and that
doesn't sets up the path shortening code in map__new() that happens if
symbol_conf.full_paths is false, the default.

On the other hand, when we use 'perf buildid-list --with-hits' we
process all the events using perf_session__process_events, adding
entries to the global DSO list _after_ removing the current directory
from the DSO name, for presentation purposes.

Because of that we end up having two entries in the DSO list when
recording events for binaries using relative pathnames.

Fix it minimally by setting symbol_conf.full_paths to true when marking
the DSOs with hits in 'perf buildid-list --with-hits', as used by 'perf
archive'

Right fix longer term is to shorten the path only at presentation time.
Will be done for 2.6.36.

But perf sched can't resolve the pids of tasks that were created

10 years agoperf: Process comm events by tid
Frederic Weisbecker [Mon, 31 May 2010 21:38:44 +0000]
perf: Process comm events by tid

When we synthetize the existing running tasks though procfs,
we walk through every threads of a process, queuing one comm
events per tid.

But then on report time, event__process_comm() only creates and
sets the comm on a per process granularity. This is the right
thing for comm events that came from the kernel, as they are
only created on exec. Sub-threads then inherit their comm
from fork events. But that doesn't work with our synthetized
comm events taken from procfs informations as the per thread
granularity is done on comm events directly there.

Hence we need event__process_comm() to work with the tid rather
than the pid. It won't change anything for comm events coming
from the kernel but this will fix the synthetized ones.

10 years agoperf_events: Fix event scheduling issues introduced by transactional API
Stephane Eranian [Tue, 25 May 2010 14:23:10 +0000]
perf_events: Fix event scheduling issues introduced by transactional API

The transactional API patch between the generic and model-specific
code introduced several important bugs with event scheduling, at
least on X86. If you had pinned events, e.g., watchdog,  and were
over-committing the PMU, you would get bogus counts. The bug was
showing up on Intel CPU because events would move around more
often that on AMD. But the problem also existed on AMD, though
harder to expose.

The issues were:

 - group_sched_in() was missing a cancel_txn() in the error path

 - cpuc->n_added was not properly maintained, leading to missing
   actions in hw_perf_enable(), i.e., n_running being 0. You cannot
   update n_added until you know the transaction has succeeded. In
   case of failed transaction n_added was not adjusted back.

 - in case of failed transactions, event_sched_out() was called
   and eventually invoked x86_disable_event() to touch the HW reg.
   But with transactions, on X86, event_sched_in() does not touch
   HW registers, it simply collects events into a list. Thus, you
   could end up calling x86_disable_event() on a counter which
   did not correspond to the current event when idx != -1.

The patch modifies the generic and X86 code to avoid all those problems.

First, we keep track of the number of events added last. In case the
transaction fails, we substract them from n_added. This approach is
necessary (as opposed to delaying updates to n_added) because not all
event updates use the transaction API, e.g., single events.

Second, we encapsulate the event_sched_in() and event_sched_out() in
group_sched_in() inside the transaction. That makes the operations
symmetrical and you can also detect that you are inside a transaction
and skip the HW reg access by checking cpuc->group_flag.

With this patch, you can now overcommit the PMU even with pinned
system-wide events present and still get valid counts.

find all its siblings and remove their reference to it.

This means that detaching an event from its context must not detach it
from the group, otherwise we can end up failing to clear all pointers.

Solve this by clearly separating the attachment to a context and
attachment to a group, and keep the group composed until we destroy
the events.

perf_events: Fix races and clean up perf_event and perf_mmap_data interaction

In order to move toward separate buffer objects, rework the whole
perf_mmap_data construct to be a more self-sufficient entity, one
with its own lifetime rules.

This greatly sanitizes the whole output redirection code, which

The define for kmap_atomic_prot was also missing, and I updated

Mark Hills [Sat, 29 May 2010 15:53:23 +0000]
ALSA: snd-usb-caiaq: Restore 'Control vinyl' input mode on A4DJ

This feature was undocumented on early A4DJ units. It is indicated
by lighting both the 'line' and 'phono' lamps at the same time.
Newer units document this and the newer Windows drivers enable this
for all units, so restore the functionality.

This patch simplifies the code and changes the mode mapping to match
the A8DJ, favouring simpler code and consistency over keeping the
existing mapping.

Both 'Control vinyl' and 'Phono' input modes enable the hardware
preamp. The difference is the input impedance.

This reverts commit 9a9527e.

ALSA: hda: Use LPIB for a Shuttle device

BugLink: https://launchpad.net/bugs/551949

Symptom: On the reporter's Shuttle device, using PulseAudio in Ubuntu
10.04 LTS results in "popping clicking" audio with the PA crashing
shortly thereafter.

Test case: Using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Linux 2.6.32.12), Linux 2.6.33, or
Linux 2.6.34, adjust the HDA device's volume with PulseAudio.

Resolution: add SSID for this machine to the position_fix quirk table,
explicitly specifying the LPIB method.

fs/ceph: Use ERR_CAST

Use ERR_CAST(x) rather than ERR_PTR(PTR_ERR(x)).  The former makes more
clear what is the purpose of the operation, which otherwise looks like a

In the case of fs/ceph/inode.c, ERR_CAST is not needed, because the type of

The underlying problem is that many mds requests can't be restarted.  For
example, a restarted create() would return -EEXIST if the original request
succeeds.  However, we do not want a hung MDS to hang the client too.  So,
use the _killable wait_for_completion variants to abort on SIGKILL but
nothing else.

ACPI: Don't let acpi_pad needlessly mark TSC unstable

acpi pad driver kind of aggressively marks TSC as unstable at init
time, on mwait capable and non X86_FEATURE_NONSTOP_TSC systems. This is
irrespective of whether pad driver is ever going to be used on the
system or deep C-states are supported/used. This will affect every user
who just happens to compile in (or get a kernel version which
compiles in) acpi pad driver.

Move mark_tsc_unstable() out of init to the actual idle invocation path
of the pad driver.

There is also another bug/missing_feature in the code that it does not
support 'always running apic timer' and switches to broadcast mode
unconditionally. Shaohua, can you take a look at that please.
