KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Thu, 7 Feb 2008 08:14:37 +0000]
per-zone and reclaim enhancements for memory controller: modifies vmscan.c for isolate globa/cgroup lru activity

When using memory controller, there are 2 levels of memory reclaim.
 1. zone memory reclaim because of system/zone memory shortage.
 2. memory cgroup memory reclaim because of hitting limit.

These two can be distinguished by sc->mem_cgroup parameter.
(scan_global_lru() macro)

This patch tries to make memory cgroup reclaim routine avoid affecting
system/zone memory reclaim. This patch inserts if (scan_global_lru()) and
hook to memory_cgroup reclaim support functions.

This patch can be a help for isolating system lru activity and group lru
activity and shows what additional functions are necessary.

 * mem_cgroup_calc_mapped_ratio() ... calculate mapped ratio for cgroup.
 * mem_cgroup_reclaim_imbalance() ... calculate active/inactive balance in
                                        cgroup.
 * mem_cgroup_calc_reclaim_active() ... calculate the number of active pages to
                                be scanned in this priority in mem_cgroup.

 * mem_cgroup_calc_reclaim_inactive() ... calculate the number of inactive pages
                                to be scanned in this priority in mem_cgroup.

 * mem_cgroup_all_unreclaimable() .. checks cgroup's page is all unreclaimable
                                     or not.
 * mem_cgroup_get_reclaim_priority() ...
 * mem_cgroup_note_reclaim_priority() ... record reclaim priority (temporal)
 * mem_cgroup_remember_reclaim_priority()
                             .... record reclaim priority as
                                  zone->prev_priority.
                                  This value is used for calc reclaim_mapped.

KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Thu, 7 Feb 2008 08:14:31 +0000]
per-zone and reclaim enhancements for memory controller: per-zone active inactive counter

This patch adds per-zone status in memory cgroup.  These values are often read
(as per-zone value) by page reclaiming.

In current design, per-zone stat is just a unsigned long value and not an
atomic value because they are modified only under lru_lock.  (So, atomic_ops
is not necessary.)

This patch adds ACTIVE and INACTIVE per-zone status values.

For handling per-zone status, this patch adds
  struct mem_cgroup_per_zone {
...
  }
and some helper functions. This will be useful to add per-zone objects
in mem_cgroup.

This patch turns memory controller's early_init to be 0 for calling
kmalloc() in initialization.

KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Thu, 7 Feb 2008 08:14:27 +0000]
memory cgroup enhancements: add- pre_destroy() handler

Add a handler "pre_destroy" to cgroup_subsys.  It is called before
cgroup_rmdir() checks all subsys's refcnt.

I think this is useful for subsys which have some extra refs even if there
are no tasks in cgroup.  By adding pre_destroy(), the kernel keeps the rule
"destroy() against subsystem is called only when refcnt=0." and allows css
ref to be used by other objects than tasks.

11 years agomemcgroup: fix hang with shmem/tmpfs
Hugh Dickins [Thu, 7 Feb 2008 08:14:22 +0000]
memcgroup: fix hang with shmem/tmpfs

The memcgroup regime relies upon a cgroup reclaiming pages from itself within
add_to_page_cache: which may involve some waiting.  Whereas shmem and tmpfs
rely upon using add_to_page_cache while holding a spinlock: when it cannot
wait.  The consequence is that when a cgroup reaches its limit, shmem_getpage
just hangs - unless there is outside memory pressure too, neither kswapd nor
radix_tree_preload get it out of the retry loop.

In most cases we can mem_cgroup_cache_charge the page waitably first, to
attach the page_cgroup in advance, so add_to_page_cache will do no more than
increment a count; then mem_cgroup_uncharge_page after (in both success and
failure cases) to balance the books again.

And where there used to be a congestion_wait for kswapd (recently made
redundant by radix_tree_preload), use mem_cgroup_cache_charge with NULL page
to go through a cycle of allocation and freeing, without accounting to any
particular page, and without updating the statistics vector.  This brings the
cgroup below its limit so the next try usually succeeds.

memory cgroup enhancements: force_empty interface for dropping all account in empty cgroup

This patch adds an interface "memory.force_empty".  Any write to this file
will drop all charges in this cgroup if there is no task under.

%echo 1 > /....../memory.force_empty

will drop all charges of memory cgroup if cgroup's tasks is empty.

This is useful to invoke rmdir() against memory cgroup successfully.

Tested and worked well on x86_64/fake-NUMA system.

Because NODE_DATA(node)->node_zonelists[] is guaranteed to contain all
necessary zones, it is not necessary to use for_each_online_node.

And this for_each_online_node() makes reclaim routine start always

11 years agomemcgroup: revert swap_state mods
Hugh Dickins [Thu, 7 Feb 2008 08:14:13 +0000]
memcgroup: revert swap_state mods

If we're charging rss and we're charging cache, it seems obvious that we
should be charging swapcache - as has been done.  But in practice that
doesn't work out so well: both swapin readahead and swapoff leave the
majority of pages charged to the wrong cgroup (the cgroup that happened to
read them in, rather than the cgroup to which they belong).

(Which is why unuse_pte's GFP_KERNEL while holding pte lock never showed up
as a problem: no allocation was ever done there, every page read being
already charged to the cgroup which initiated the swapoff.)

It all works rather better if we leave the charging to do_swap_page and
unuse_pte, and do nothing for swapcache itself: revert mm/swap_state.c to
what it was before the memory-controller patches.  This also speeds up
significantly a contained process working at its limit: because it no
longer needs to keep waiting for swap writeback to complete.

Is it unfair that swap pages become uncharged once they're unmapped, even
though they're still clearly private to particular cgroups?  For a short
while, yes; but PageReclaim arranges for those pages to go to the end of
the inactive list and be reclaimed soon if necessary.

shmem/tmpfs pages are a distinct case: their charging also benefits from
this change, but their second life on the lists as swapcache pages may
prove more unfair - that I need to check next.

11 years agomemcgroup: fix zone isolation OOM
Hugh Dickins [Thu, 7 Feb 2008 08:14:12 +0000]
memcgroup: fix zone isolation OOM

mem_cgroup_charge_common shows a tendency to OOM without good reason, when
a memhog goes well beyond its rss limit but with plenty of swap available.
Seen on x86 but not on PowerPC; seen when the next patch omits swapcache
from memcgroup, but we presume it can happen without.

mem_cgroup_isolate_pages is not quite satisfying reclaim's criteria for OOM
avoidance.  Already it has to scan beyond the nr_to_scan limit when it
finds a !LRU page or an active page when handling inactive or an inactive
page when handling active.  It needs to do exactly the same when it finds a
page from the wrong zone (the x86 tests had two zones, the PowerPC tests
had only one).

Don't increment scan and then decrement it in these cases, just move the
incrementation down.  Fix recent off-by-one when checking against
nr_to_scan.  Cut out "Check if the meta page went away from under us",
presumably left over from early debugging: no amount of such checks could
save us if this list really were being updated without locking.

This change does make the unlimited scan while holding two spinlocks
even worse - bad for latency and bad for containment; but that's a
separate issue which is better left to be fixed a little later.

bugfix for memory cgroup controller: avoid !PageLRU page in mem_cgroup_isolate_pages

This patch makes mem_cgroup_isolate_pages() to be

  - ignore !PageLRU pages.
  - fixes the bug that isolation makes no progress if page_zone(page) != zone
    page once find. (just increment scan in this case.)

kswapd and memory migration removes a page from list when it handles
a page for reclaiming/migration.

Because __isolate_lru_page() doesn't moves page !PageLRU pages, it will
be safe to avoid touching !PageLRU() page and its page_cgroup.

11 years agobugfix for memory cgroup controller: migration under memory controller fix
KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Thu, 7 Feb 2008 08:14:10 +0000]
bugfix for memory cgroup controller: migration under memory controller fix

While using memory control cgroup, page-migration under it works as following.
==
 1. uncharge all refs at try to unmap.
 2. charge regs again remove_migration_ptes()
==
This is simple but has following problems.
==
 The page is uncharged and charged back again if *mapped*.
    - This means that cgroup before migration can be different from one after
      migration
    - If page is not mapped but charged as page cache, charge is just ignored
      (because not mapped, it will not be uncharged before migration)
      This is memory leak.
==
This patch tries to keep memory cgroup at page migration by increasing
one refcnt during it. 3 functions are added.

 mem_cgroup_prepare_migration() --- increase refcnt of page->page_cgroup
 mem_cgroup_end_migration()     --- decrease refcnt of page->page_cgroup
 mem_cgroup_page_migration() --- copy page->page_cgroup from old page to
                                 new page.

During migration
  - old page is under PG_locked.
  - new page is under PG_locked, too.
  - both old page and new page is not on LRU.

These 3 facts guarantee that page_cgroup() migration has no race.

Tested and worked well in x86_64/fake-NUMA box.

Rik van Riel [Thu, 7 Feb 2008 08:14:08 +0000]
kswapd should only wait on IO if there is IO

The current kswapd (and try_to_free_pages) code has an oddity where the
code will wait on IO, even if there is no IO in flight.  This problem is
notable especially when the system scans through many unfreeable pages,
causing unnecessary stalls in the VM.

Additionally, tasks without __GFP_FS or __GFP_IO in the direct reclaim path
will sleep if a significant number of pages are encountered that should be
written out.  This gives kswapd a chance to write out those pages, while
the direct reclaim task sleeps.

oom: add sysctl to enable task memory dump

Adds a new sysctl, 'oom_dump_tasks', that enables the kernel to produce a
dump of all system tasks (excluding kernel threads) when performing an
OOM-killing.  Information includes pid, uid, tgid, vm size, rss, cpu,
oom_adj score, and name.

This is helpful for determining why there was an OOM condition and which
rogue task caused it.

It is configurable so that large systems, such as those with several
thousand tasks, do not incur a performance penalty associated with dumping
data they may not desire.

If an OOM was triggered as a result of a memory controller, the tasklist
shall be filtered to exclude tasks that are not a member of the same
cgroup.

Balbir Singh [Thu, 7 Feb 2008 08:13:53 +0000]
Memory controller: memory accounting

Add the accounting hooks.  The accounting is carried out for RSS and Page
Cache (unmapped) pages.  There is now a common limit and accounting for both.
The RSS accounting is accounted at page_add_*_rmap() and page_remove_rmap()
time.  Page cache is accounted at add_to_page_cache(),
__delete_from_page_cache().  Swap cache is also accounted for.

Each page's page_cgroup is protected with the last bit of the
page_cgroup pointer, this makes handling of race conditions involving
simultaneous mappings of a page easier.  A reference count is kept in the
page_cgroup to deal with cases where a page might be unmapped from the RSS
of all tasks, but still lives in the page cache.

Credits go to Vaidyanathan Srinivasan for helping with reference counting work
of the page cgroup.  Almost all of the page cache accounting code has help
from Vaidyanathan Srinivasan.

cgroups: move cgroups destroy() callbacks to cgroup_diput()

Move the calls to the cgroup subsystem destroy() methods from
cgroup_rmdir() to cgroup_diput().  This allows control file reads and
writes to access their subsystem state without having to be concerned with
locking against cgroup destruction - the control file dentry will keep the
cgroup and its subsystem state objects alive until the file is closed.

The documentation is updated to reflect the changed semantics of destroy();
additionally the locking comments for destroy() and some other methods were
clarified and decrustified.

VFS: swap do_ioctl and vfs_ioctl names

Rename old vfs_ioctl to do_ioctl, because the comment above it clearly
indicates that it is an internal function not to be exported to modules;
therefore it should have a more traditional do_XXX name.  The new do_ioctl
is exported in fs.h but not to modules.

Rename the old do_ioctl to vfs_ioctl because the names vfs_XXX should
preferably be reserved to callable VFS functions which modules may call, as
many other vfs_XXX functions already do.  Export the new vfs_ioctl to GPL
modules so others can use it (including Unionfs and eCryptfs).  Add DocBook
for new vfs_ioctl.

power_supply: remove capacity_level from list of sysfs attributes

This commit:

commit 8efe444038a205e79b38b7ad03878824901849a8
Author: Andres Salomon <dilinger@queued.net>
Date:   Wed Dec 12 14:12:56 2007 -0500

    power: remove POWER_SUPPLY_PROP_CAPACITY_LEVEL

Removed CAPACITY_LEVEL from every other code, leaving the array with sysfs
attributes with one more entry than the number of enums in power_supply.h.
This leads to some attributes containing the value of the attribute right
after it.  For example, temp_ambient would have the value of
time_to_empty_now.  In my case, I had time_to_full_avg have the value which
should be in model_name, when the former was usually empty.

11 years agox86: remove suprious ifdefs from pageattr.c

x86: remove suprious ifdefs from pageattr.c

The .rodata section really should just be read only; the config option
is there to make breaking up the 2Mb page an option (so people whos machines
give more performance for the 2Mb case can opt to do so).
But when the page gets split anyway, this is no longer an issue, so
clean up the code and remove the ifdefs

11 years agox86: mark the .rodata section also NX
Arjan van de Ven [Wed, 6 Feb 2008 21:39:45 +0000]
x86: mark the .rodata section also NX

The .rodata section shouldn't just be read-only,
but also non-executable. This is free since we've broken
up the 2MB page already anyway.

also update test_nx to check for this.

11 years agox86: fix iret exception recovery on 64-bit

x86: fix iret exception recovery on 64-bit

This change broke recovery of exceptions in iret:

   commit 72fe4858544292ad64600765cb78bc02298c6b1c
   Author: Glauber de Oliveira Costa <gcosta@redhat.com>

       x86: replace privileged instructions with paravirt macros

The ENTRY(native_iret) macro adds alignment padding before the iretq
instruction, so "iret_label" no longer points exactly at the instruction.
It was sloppy to leave the old "iret_label" label behind when replacing
its nearby use.  Removing it would have revealed the other use of the
label later in the file, and upon noticing that use, anyone exercising
the minimum of attention to detail expected of anyone touching this
subtle code would realize it needed to change as well.

x86: fix sparse error in traps_32.c

This was being used to ensure the proper alignment of the FXSAVE/FXRSTOR data.
This would create a sparse error in the _correct_ cases, hiding further
warnings.  Use BUILD_BUG_ON instead.
