aoe: add module parameter for users who need more outstanding I/O

An AoE target provides an estimate of the number of outstanding commands that
the AoE initiator can send before getting a response.  The aoe_maxout
parameter provides a way to set an even lower limit.  It will not allow a user

11 years agoaoe: dynamically allocate a capped number of skbs when necessary
Ed L. Cashin [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 12:20:05 +0000]
aoe: dynamically allocate a capped number of skbs when necessary

What this Patch Does

  Even before this recent series of 12 patches to 2.6.22-rc4, the aoe
  driver was reusing a small set of skbs that were allocated once and
  were only used for outbound AoE commands.

  The network layer cannot be allowed to put_page on the data that is
  still associated with a bio we haven't returned to the block layer,
  so the aoe driver (even before the patch under discussion) is still
  the owner of skbs that have been handed to the network layer for
  transmission.  We need to keep track of these skbs so that we can
  free them, but by tracking them, we can also easily re-use them.

  The new patch was a response to the behavior of certain network
  drivers.  We cannot reuse an skb that the network driver still has
  in its transmit ring.  Network drivers can defer transmit ring
  cleanup and then use the state in the skb to determine how many data
  segments to clean up in its transmit ring.  The tg3 driver is one
  driver that behaves in this way.

  When the network driver defers cleanup of its transmit ring, the aoe
  driver can find itself in a situation where it would like to send an
  AoE command, and the AoE target is ready for more work, but the
  network driver still has all of the pre-allocated skbs.  In that
  case, the new patch just calls alloc_skb, as you'd expect.

  We don't want to get carried away, though.  We try not to do
  excessive allocation in the write path, so we cap the number of skbs
  we dynamically allocate.

  Probably calling it a "dynamic pool" is misleading.  We were already
  trying to use a small fixed-size set of pre-allocated skbs before
  this patch, and this patch just provides a little headroom (with a
  ceiling, though) to accomodate network drivers that hang onto skbs,
  by allocating when needed.  The d->skbpool_hd list of allocated skbs
  is necessary so that we can free them later.

  We didn't notice the need for this headroom until AoE targets got
  fast enough.

Alternatives

  If the network layer never did a put_page on the pages in the bio's
  we get from the block layer, then it would be possible for us to
  hand skbs to the network layer and forget about them, allowing the
  network layer to free skbs itself (and thereby calling our own
  skb->destructor callback function if we needed that).  In that case
  we could get rid of the pre-allocated skbs and also the
  d->skbpool_hd, instead just calling alloc_skb every time we wanted
  to transmit a packet.  The slab allocator would effectively maintain
  the list of skbs.

  Besides a loss of CPU cache locality, the main concern with that
  approach the danger that it would increase the likelihood of
  deadlock when VM is trying to free pages by writing dirty data from
  the page cache through the aoe driver out to persistent storage on
  an AoE device.  Right now we have a situation where we have
  pre-allocation that corresponds to how much we use, which seems
  ideal.

  Of course, there's still the separate issue of receiving the packets
  that tell us that a write has successfully completed on the AoE
  target.  When memory is low and VM is using AoE to flush dirty data
  to free up pages, it would be perfect if there were a way for us to
  register a fast callback that could recognize write command
  completion responses.  But I don't think the current problems with
  the receive side of the situation are a justification for
  exacerbating the problem on the transmit side.

aoe: user can ask driver to forget previously detected devices

When an AoE device is detected, the kernel is informed, and a new block device
is created.  If the device is unused, the block device corresponding to remote
device that is no longer available may be removed from the system by telling
the aoe driver to "flush" its list of devices.

Without this patch, software like GPFS and LVM may attempt to read from AoE
devices that were discovered earlier but are no longer present, blocking until
the I/O attempt times out.

Ed L. Cashin [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 12:20:00 +0000]
aoe: handle multiple network paths to AoE device

A remote AoE device is something can process ATA commands and is identified by
an AoE shelf number and an AoE slot number.  Such a device might have more
than one network interface, and it might be reachable by more than one local
network interface.  This patch tracks the available network paths available to
each AoE device, allowing them to be used more efficiently.

Andrew Morton asked about the call to msleep_interruptible in the revalidate
function.  Yes, if a signal is pending, then msleep_interruptible will not
return 0.  That means we will not loop but will call aoenet_xmit with a NULL
skb, which is a noop.  If the system is too low on memory or the aoe driver is
too low on frames, then the user can hit control-C to interrupt the attempt to
do a revalidate.  I have added a comment to the code summarizing that.

Andrew Morton asked whether the allocation performed inside addtgt could use a
more relaxed allocation like GFP_KERNEL, but addtgt is called when the aoedev
lock has been locked with spin_lock_irqsave.  It would be nice to allocate the
memory under fewer restrictions, but targets are only added when the device is
being discovered, and if the target can't be added right now, we can try again
in a minute when then next AoE config query broadcast goes out.

Andrew Morton pointed out that the "too many targets" message could be printed
for failing GFP_ATOMIC allocations.  The last patch in this series makes the
messages more specific.

Nick Piggin [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 12:19:49 +0000]
rewrite rd

This is a rewrite of the ramdisk block device driver.

The old one is really difficult because it effectively implements a block
device which serves data out of its own buffer cache.  It relies on the dirty
bit being set, to pin its backing store in cache, however there are non
trivial paths which can clear the dirty bit (eg.  try_to_free_buffers()),
which had recently lead to data corruption.  And in general it is completely
wrong for a block device driver to do this.

The new one is more like a regular block device driver.  It has no idea about
vm/vfs stuff.  It's backing store is similar to the buffer cache (a simple
radix-tree of pages), but it doesn't know anything about page cache (the pages
in the radix tree are not pagecache pages).

There is one slight downside -- direct block device access and filesystem
metadata access goes through an extra copy and gets stored in RAM twice.
However, this downside is only slight, because the real buffercache of the
device is now reclaimable (because we're not playing crazy games with it), so
under memory intensive situations, footprint should effectively be the same --
maybe even a slight advantage to the new driver because it can also reclaim
buffer heads.

The fact that it now goes through all the regular vm/fs paths makes it
much more useful for testing, too.

   text    data     bss     dec     hex filename
   2837     849     384    4070     fe6 drivers/block/rd.o
   3528     371      12    3911     f47 drivers/block/brd.o

Text is larger, but data and bss are smaller, making total size smaller.

A few other nice things about it:
- Similar structure and layout to the new loop device handlinag.
- Dynamic ramdisk creation.
- Runtime flexible buffer head size (because it is no longer part of the
  ramdisk code).
- Boot / load time flexible ramdisk size, which could easily be extended
  to a per-ramdisk runtime changeable size (eg. with an ioctl).
- Can use highmem for the backing store.

a namespace clash with an arch function of the same name.

All this driver's functions and variables should really be prefixed with
"net2280_" to avoid such a problem in future.

David Howells [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 12:19:28 +0000]
aout: suppress A.OUT library support if !CONFIG_ARCH_SUPPORTS_AOUT

Suppress A.OUT library support if CONFIG_ARCH_SUPPORTS_AOUT is not set.

Not all architectures support the A.OUT binfmt, so the ELF binfmt should not
be permitted to go looking for A.OUT libraries to load in such a case.  Not
only that, but under such conditions A.OUT core dumps are not produced either.

To make this work, this patch also does the following:

 (1) Makes the existence of the contents of linux/a.out.h contingent on
     CONFIG_ARCH_SUPPORTS_AOUT.

 (2) Renames dump_thread() to aout_dump_thread() as it's only called by A.OUT
     core dumping code.

 (3) Moves aout_dump_thread() into asm/a.out-core.h and makes it inline.  This
     is then included only where needed.  This means that this bit of arch
     code will be stored in the appropriate A.OUT binfmt module rather than
     the core kernel.

 (4) Drops A.OUT support for Blackfin (according to Mike Frysinger it's not
     needed) and FRV.

This patch depends on the previous patch to move STACK_TOP[_MAX] out of
asm/a.out.h and into asm/processor.h as they're required whether or not A.OUT
format is available.

def_bool y

This should also be set if the arch provides compatibility A.OUT support for

kill_pid_info()->pid_task() could be the old leader of the execing process.
In that case it is possible that the leader will be released before we take
siglock. This means that kill_pid_info() (and thus sys_kill()) can return a

Change the code to retry when lock_task_sighand() fails. The endless loop is

pid: Extend/Fix pid_vnr

pid_vnr returns the user space pid with respect to the pid namespace the
struct pid was allocated in.  What we want before we return a pid to user
space is the user space pid with respect to the pid namespace of current.

pid_vnr is a very nice optimization but because it isn't quite what we want
it is easy to use pid_vnr at times when we aren't certain the struct pid
was allocated in our pid namespace.

Currently this describes at least tiocgpgrp and tiocgsid in ttyio.c the
parent process reported in the core dumps and the parent process in
get_signal_to_deliver.

So unless the performance impact is huge having an interface that does what
we want instead of always what we want should be much more reliable and
much less error prone.

pid: sys_wait... fixes

This modifies do_wait and eligible child to take a pair of enum pid_type
and struct pid *pid to precisely specify what set of processes are eligible
to be waited for, instead of the raw pid_t value from sys_wait4.

This fixes a bug in sys_waitid where you could not wait for children in
just process group 1.

This fixes a pid namespace crossing case in eligible_child.  Allowing us to
wait for a processes in our current process group even if our current
process group == 0.

This allows the no child with this pid case to be optimized.  This allows
us to optimize the pid membership test in eligible child to be optimized.

This even closes a theoretical pid wraparound race where in a threaded
parent if two threads are waiting for the same child and one thread picks
up the child and the pid numbers wrap around and generate another child
with that same pid before the other thread is scheduled (teribly insanely
unlikely) we could end up waiting on the second child with the same pid#
and not discover that the specific child we were waiting for has exited.

Oleg Nesterov [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 12:19:13 +0000]
move the related code from exit_notify() to exit_signals()

The previous bugfix was not optimal, we shouldn't care about group stop
when we are the only thread or the group stop is in progress.  In that case
nothing special is needed, just set PF_EXITING and return.

Also, take the related "TIF_SIGPENDING re-targeting" code from exit_notify().

So, from the performance POV the only difference is that we don't trust
!signal_pending() until we take ->siglock.  But this in fact fixes another
___pure___ theoretical minor race.  __group_complete_signal() finds the
task without PF_EXITING and chooses it as the target for signal_wake_up().
But nothing prevents this task from exiting in between without noticing the
pending signal and thus unpredictably delaying the actual delivery.

fix group stop with exit race

do_signal_stop() counts all sub-thread and sets ->group_stop_count
accordingly.  Every thread should decrement ->group_stop_count and stop,
the last one should notify the parent.

However a sub-thread can exit before it notices the signal_pending(), or it
may be somewhere in do_exit() already.  In that case the group stop never
finishes properly.

Note: this is a minimal fix, we can add some optimizations later.  Say we
can return quickly if thread_group_empty().  Also, we can move some signal
related code from exit_notify() to exit_signals().

11 years agomove daemonized kernel threads into the swapper's session
Oleg Nesterov [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 12:19:10 +0000]
move daemonized kernel threads into the swapper's session

Daemonized kernel threads run in the init's session. This doesn't match the
behaviour of kthread_create()'ed threads, and this is one of the 2 reasons
why we need a special hack in sys_setsid().

Now that set_special_pids() was changed to use struct pid, not pid_t, we can
use init_struct_pid and set 0,0 special pids.

11 years agodo_wait: fix security checks
Oleg Nesterov [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 12:19:06 +0000]
do_wait: fix security checks

Imho, the current usage of security_task_wait() is not logical.

Suppose we have the single child p, and security_task_wait(p) return
-EANY.  In that case waitpid(-1) returns this error.  Why? Isn't it
better to return ECHLD? We don't really have reapable children.

Now suppose that child was stolen by gdb.  In that case we find this
child on ->ptrace_children and set flag = 1, but we don't check that the
child was denied.  So, do_wait(..., WNOHANG) returns 0, this doesn't
match the behaviour above.  Without WNOHANG do_wait() blocks only to
return the error later, when the child will be untraced.  Inho, really
strange.

I think eligible_child() should return the error only if the child's pid
was requested explicitly, otherwise we should silently ignore the tasks
which were nacked by security_task_wait().

ptrace_stop: fix racy nonstop_code setting

If the tracer is gone and we are not going to stop, ptrace_stop() sets

exit code before detaching.  In that case get_signal_to_deliver() "resends"

possible that a quick PTRACE_ATTACH + PTRACE_DETACH can leave the tracee in
STOPPED state.

Change the behaviour of ptrace_stop().  If the caller is ptrace notify(),
we should always clear ->exit_code.  If the caller is
get_signal_to_deliver(), we should not touch it at all.  To do so, change

Oleg Nesterov [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 12:19:01 +0000]
wait_task_stopped: simplify and fix races with SIGCONT/SIGKILL/untrace

wait_task_stopped() has multiple races with SIGCONT/SIGKILL.  tasklist_lock
does not pin the child in TASK_TRACED/TASK_STOPPED stated, almost all info
reported (including exit_code) may be wrong.

In fact, the code under write_lock_irq(tasklist_lock) is not safe.  The child
may be PTRACE_DETACH'ed at this time by another subthread, in that case it is
possible we are no longer its ->parent.

Change wait_task_stopped() to take ->siglock before inspecting the task.  This
guarantees that the child can't resume and (for example) clear its
->exit_code, so we don't need to use xchg(&p->exit_code) and re-check.  The
only exception is ptrace_stop() which changes ->state and ->exit_code without
->siglock held during abort.  But this can only happen if both the tracer and
the tracee are dying (coredump is in progress), we don't care.

With this patch wait_task_stopped() doesn't move the child to the end of
the ->parent list on success.  This optimization could be restored, but
in that case we have to take write_lock(tasklist) and do some nasty
checks.

Also change the do_wait() since we don't return EAGAIN any longer.

Pierre Peiffer [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 12:18:57 +0000]
IPC: make struct ipc_ids static in ipc_namespace

Each ipc_namespace contains a table of 3 pointers to struct ipc_ids (3 for
msg, sem and shm, structure used to store all ipcs) These 'struct ipc_ids'
are dynamically allocated for each icp_namespace as the ipc_namespace
itself (for the init namespace, they are initialized with pointers to
static variables instead)

It is so for historical reason: in fact, before the use of idr to store the
ipcs, the ipcs were stored in tables of variable length, depending of the
maximum number of ipc allowed.  Now, these 'struct ipc_ids' have a fixed
size.  As they are allocated in any cases for each new ipc_namespace, there
is no gain of memory in having them allocated separately of the struct
ipc_namespace.

This patch proposes to make this table static in the struct ipc_namespace.
Thus, we can allocate all in once and get rid of all the code needed to
allocate and free these ipc_ids separately.

11 years agoproc: fix ->open'less usage due to ->proc_fops flip
Alexey Dobriyan [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 12:18:37 +0000]
proc: fix ->open'less usage due to ->proc_fops flip

Typical PDE creation code looks like:

pde = create_proc_entry("foo", 0, NULL);
if (pde)
pde->proc_fops = &foo_proc_fops;

Notice that PDE is first created, only then ->proc_fops is set up to
final value. This is a problem because right after creation
a) PDE is fully visible in /proc , and
b) ->proc_fops are proc_file_operations which do not have ->open callback. So, it's
   possible to ->read without ->open (see one class of oopses below).

The fix is new API called proc_create() which makes sure ->proc_fops are
set up before gluing PDE to main tree. Typical new code looks like:

pde = proc_create("foo", 0, NULL, &foo_proc_fops);
if (!pde)
return -ENOMEM;

Fix most networking users for a start.

In the long run, create_proc_entry() for regular files will go.

11 years agoproc: fix the threaded /proc/self
Eric W. Biederman [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 12:18:35 +0000]
proc: fix the threaded /proc/self

Long ago when the CLONE_THREAD support first went it someone thought it
would be wise to point /proc/self at /proc/<tgid> instead of /proc/<pid>.

Given that /proc/<tgid> can return information about a very different task
(if enough things have been unshared) then our current process /proc/<tgid>
seems blatantly wrong.  So far I have yet to think up an example where the
current behavior would be advantageous, and I can see several places where
it is seriously non-intuitive.

We may be stuck with the current broken behavior for backwards
compatibility reasons but lets try fixing our ancient bug for the 2.6.25
time frame and see if anyone screams.

11 years agoproc: rewrite do_task_stat to correctly handle pid namespaces.
Eric W. Biederman [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 12:18:31 +0000]
proc: rewrite do_task_stat to correctly handle pid namespaces.

Currently (as pointed out by Oleg) do_task_stat has a race when calling
task_pid_nr_ns with the task exiting.  In addition do_task_stat is not
currently displaying information in the context of the pid namespace that
mounted the /proc filesystem.  So "cut -d' ' -f 1 /proc/<pid>/stat" may not
equal <pid>.

This patch fixes the problem by converting to a single_open seq_file show
method.  Getting the pid namespace from the filesystem superblock instead of
current, and simply using the the struct pid from the inode instead of
attempting to get that same pid from the task.

Currently many /proc/pid files use a crufty precursor to the current seq_file

So implement proc_single_file_operations to make the seq_file routines easy to
