Linus Torvalds [Wed, 15 Apr 2009 15:05:13 +0000]
acpi-cpufreq: fix 'smp_call_function_many()' confusion

It turns out that 'smp_call_function_many()' doesn't work at all like
'smp_call_function_single()', and my change to Andrew's patch to use it
rather than a loop over all CPU's acpi-cpufreq doesn't work.

My bad.

'smp_call_function_many()' has two "features" (aka "documented bugs"):

 (a) it needs to be called with preemption disabled, because it uses
     smp_processor_id() without guarding the CPU lookup with 'get_cpu()'
     and 'put_cpu()' like the 'single' variant does.

 (b) even if the current CPU is part of the CPU mask, it won't do the
     call on that CPU.

Still, we're better off trying to use 'smp_call_function_many()' than
looping over CPU's, since it at least in theory allows us to use a
broadcast IPI and do it all in parallel.  So let's just work around the
silly semantic bugs in that function.

11 years agocfq-iosched: add close cooperator code
Jens Axboe [Wed, 15 Apr 2009 10:15:11 +0000]
cfq-iosched: add close cooperator code

If we have processes that are working in close proximity to each
other on disk, we don't want to idle wait. Instead allow the close
process to issue a request, getting better aggregate bandwidth.
The anticipatory scheduler has similar checks, noop and deadline do
not need it since they don't care about process <-> io mappings.

The code for CFQ is a little more involved though, since we split
request queues into per-process contexts.

This fixes a performance problem with eg dump(8), since it uses
several processes in some silly attempt to speed IO up. Even if
dump(8) isn't really a valid case (it should be fixed by using
CLONE_IO), there are other cases where we see close processes
and where idling ends up hurting performance.

Credit goes to Jeff Moyer <jmoyer@redhat.com> for writing the
initial implementation.

There are lots of sequences like this, especially in splice code:

if (pipe->inode)

/* do something */
if (pipe->inode)
mutex_unlock(&pipe->inode->i_mutex);

so introduce helpers which do the conditional locking and unlocking.
Also replace the inode_double_lock() call with a pipe_double_lock()
helper to avoid spreading the use of this functionality beyond the
pipe code.

Jens Axboe [Tue, 14 Apr 2009 12:18:16 +0000]
cfq-iosched: don't delay queue kick for a merged request

"Zhang, Yanmin" <yanmin_zhang@linux.intel.com> reports that commit
b029195dda0129b427c6e579a3bb3ae752da3a93 introduced a regression
of about 50% with sequential threaded read workloads. The test
case is:

tiotest -k0 -k1 -k3 -f 80 -t 32

which starts 32 threads each reading a 80MB file. Twiddle the kick
queue logic so that we do start IO immediately, if it appears to be
a fully merged request. We can't really detect that, so just check
if the request is bigger than a page or not. The assumption is that
since single bio issues will first queue a single request with just
one page attached and then later do merges on that, if we already
have more than a page worth of data in the request, then the request
is most likely good to go.

Verified that this doesn't cause a regression with the test case that
commit b029195dda0129b427c6e579a3bb3ae752da3a93 was fixing. It does not,
we still see maximum sized requests for the queue-then-merge cases.

Mike Mason [Fri, 10 Apr 2009 08:57:03 +0000]
powerpc/pseries: Set error_state to pci_channel_io_normal in eeh_report_reset()

While adding native EEH support to Emulex and Qlogic drivers, it was
discovered that dev->error_state was set to pci_io_channel_normal too
late in the recovery process. These drivers rely on error_state to
determine if they can access the device in their slot_reset callback,
thus error_state needs to be set to pci_io_channel_normal in
eeh_report_reset(). Below is a detailed explanation (courtesy of Richard
Lary) as to why this is necessary.

Background:
PCI MMIO or DMA accesses to a frozen slot generate additional EEH
errors. If the number of additional EEH errors exceeds EEH_MAX_FAILS the
adapter will be shutdown. To avoid triggering excessive EEH errors and
an undesirable adapter shutdown, some drivers use the
pci_channel_offline(dev) wrapper function to return a Boolean value
based on the value of pci_dev->error_state to determine if PCI MMIO or
DMA accesses are safe. If the wrapper returns TRUE, drivers must not
make PCI MMIO or DMA access to their hardware.

The pci_dev structure member error_state reflects one of three values,
1) pci_channel_io_normal, 2) pci_channel_io_frozen, 3)
pci_channel_io_perm_failure.  Function pci_channel_offline(dev) returns
TRUE if error_state is pci_channel_io_frozen or pci_channel_io_perm_failure.

The EEH driver sets pci_dev->error_state to pci_channel_io_frozen at the
point where the PCI slot is frozen. Currently, the EEH driver restores
dev->error_state to pci_channel_io_normal in eeh_report_resume() before
calling the driver's resume callback. However, when the EEH driver calls
the driver's slot_reset callback() from eeh_report_reset(), it
incorrectly indicates the error state is still pci_channel_io_frozen.

Waiting until eeh_report_resume() to restore dev->error_state to
pci_channel_io_normal is too late for Emulex and QLogic FC drivers and
any other drivers which are designed to use common code paths in these
two cases: i) those called after the driver's slot_reset callback() and
ii) those called after the PCI slot is frozen but before the driver's
slot_reset callback is called. Case i) all driver paths executed to
reinitialize the hardware after a reset and case ii) all code paths
executed by driver kernel threads that run asynchronous to the main
driver thread, such as interrupt handlers and worker threads to process
driver work queues.

Emulex and QLogic FC drivers are designed with common code paths which
require that pci_channel_offline(dev) reflect the true state of the
hardware. The state transitions that the hardware takes from Normal
Operations to Slot Frozen to Reset to Normal Operations are documented
in the Power Architectureâ„¢ Platform Requirements+ (PAPR+) in Table 75.
PE State Control.

PAPR defines the following 3 states:

0 -- Not reset, Not EEH stopped, MMIO load/store allowed, DMA allowed
     (Normal Operations)
1 -- Reset, Not EEH stopped, MMIO load/store disabled, DMA disabled
2 -- Not reset, EEH stopped, MMIO load/store disabled, DMA disabled
     (Slot Frozen)

An EEH error places the slot in state 2 (Frozen) and the adapter driver
is notified that an EEH error was detected. If the adapter driver
returns PCI_ERS_RESULT_NEED_RESET, the EEH driver calls
eeh_reset_device() to place the slot into state 1 (Reset) and
eeh_reset_device completes by placing the slot into State 0 (Normal
Operations). Upon return from eeh_reset_device(), the EEH driver calls
eeh_report_reset, which then calls the adapter's slot_reset callback. At
the time the adapter's slot_reset callback is called, the true state of
the hardware is Normal Operations and should be accurately reflected by
setting dev->error_state to pci_channel_io_normal.

The current implementation of EEH driver does not do so and requires
this change to correct this deficiency.

Revert part of af5c820a3169e81af869c113e18ec7588836cd50 ("x86: cpumask:
use work_on_cpu in arch/x86/kernel/microcode_core.c")

That change is causing only one Intel CPU's microcode to be updated e.g.
microcode: CPU3 updated from revision 0x9 to 0x17, date = 2005-04-22
where before it announced that also for CPU0 and CPU1 and CPU2.

We cannot use work_on_cpu() in the CONFIG_MICROCODE_OLD_INTERFACE code,
because Intel's request_microcode_user() involves a copy_from_user() from
/sbin/microcode_ctl, which therefore needs to be on that CPU at the time.

due to:

 9eeba61: lockdep: warn about lockdep disabling after kernel taint

There is some inconsistency between architectures about where exactly
xchg() is defined.

The traditional place is in system.h but the more logical point for it
is in atomic.h - where most architectures (especially new ones) have
it defined. These architecture also still offer it via system.h.

Some, such as Sparc or s390 only have it in asm/system.h and not available
via asm/atomic.h at all.

Use the widest set of headers in debug_locks.h and also include asm/system.h.

Jan Kara [Mon, 13 Apr 2009 21:40:14 +0000]
ext2: fix data corruption for racing writes

If two writers allocating blocks to file race with each other (e.g.
because writepages races with ordinary write or two writepages race with
each other), ext2_getblock() can be called on the same inode in parallel.
Before we are going to allocate new blocks, we have to recheck the block
chain we have obtained so far without holding truncate_mutex.  Otherwise
we could overwrite the indirect block pointer set by the other writer
leading to data loss.

The below test program by Ying is able to reproduce the data loss with ext2
on in BRD in a few minutes if the machine is under memory pressure:

long kMemSize  = 50 << 20;
int kPageSize = 4096;

int main(int argc, char **argv) {
int status;
int count = 0;
int i;
char *fname = "/mnt/test.mmap";
char *mem;
unlink(fname);
int fd = open(fname, O_CREAT | O_EXCL | O_RDWR, 0600);
status = ftruncate(fd, kMemSize);
mem = mmap(0, kMemSize, PROT_READ | PROT_WRITE, MAP_SHARED, fd, 0);
// Fill the memory with 1s.
memset(mem, 1, kMemSize);
sleep(2);
for (i = 0; i < kMemSize; i++) {
int byte_good = mem[i] != 0;
if (!byte_good && ((i % kPageSize) == 0)) {
//printf("%d ", i / kPageSize);
count++;
}
}
munmap(mem, kMemSize);
close(fd);
unlink(fname);

if (count > 0) {
printf("Running %d bad page\n", count);
return 1;
}
return 0;
}

Hugh Dickins [Mon, 13 Apr 2009 21:40:12 +0000]
shmem: respect MAX_LFS_FILESIZE

SHMEM_MAX_BYTES was derived from the maximum size of its triple-indirect
swap vector, forgetting to take the MAX_LFS_FILESIZE limit into account.
Never mind 256kB pages, even 8kB pages on 32-bit kernels allowed files to
grow slightly bigger than that supposed maximum.

Fix this by using the min of both (at build time not run time).  And it
happens that this calculation is good as far as 8MB pages on 32-bit or
16MB pages on 64-bit: though SHMSWP_MAX_INDEX gets truncated before that,
it's truncated to such large numbers that we don't need to care.

11 years agoshmem: fix division by zero
Yuri Tikhonov [Mon, 13 Apr 2009 21:40:11 +0000]
shmem: fix division by zero

Fix a division by zero which we have in shmem_truncate_range() and
shmem_unuse_inode() when using big PAGE_SIZE values (e.g.  256kB on
ppc44x).

With 256kB PAGE_SIZE, the ENTRIES_PER_PAGEPAGE constant becomes too large
(0x1.0000.0000) on a 32-bit kernel, so this patch just changes its type
from 'unsigned long' to 'unsigned long long'.

Hugh: reverted its unsigned long longs in shmem_truncate_range() and
shmem_getpage(): the pagecache index cannot be more than an unsigned long,
so the divisions by zero occurred in unreached code.  It's a pity we need
any ULL arithmetic here, but I found no pretty way to avoid it.

Randy Robertson [Mon, 13 Apr 2009 21:40:04 +0000]
initramfs: fix initramfs to work with hardlinked init

Change cb6ff208076b5f434db1b8c983429269d719cef5 ("NOMMU: Support XIP on
initramfs") seems to have broken booting from initramfs with /sbin/init
being a hardlink.

It seems like the logic required for XIP on nommu, i.e.  ftruncate to
reported cpio header file size (body_len) is broken for hardlinks, which
have a reported size of 0, and the truncate thus nukes the contents of the
file (in my case busybox), making boot impossible and ending with runaway
loop modprobe binfmt-0000 - and of course 0000 is not a valid binary
format.

My fix is to only call ftruncate if size is non-zero which fixes things
for me, but I'm not certain whether this will break XIP for those files on
nommu systems, although I would guess not.

ptrace: fix exit_ptrace() vs ptrace_traceme() race

Pointed out by Roland.  The bug was recently introduced by me in
"forget_original_parent: split out the un-ptrace part", commit
39c626ae47c469abdfd30c6e42eff884931380d6.

Since that patch we have a window after exit_ptrace() drops tasklist and
before forget_original_parent() takes it again.  In this window the child
can do ptrace(PTRACE_TRACEME) and nobody can untrace this child after
that.

Change ptrace_traceme() to not attach to the exiting ->real_parent.  We
don't report the error in this case, we pretend we attach right before
->real_parent calls exit_ptrace() which should untrace us anyway.

res_counter: update documentation

After the introduction of resource counters hierarchies
(28dbc4b6a01fb579a9441c7b81e3d3413dc452df) the prototypes of
res_counter_init() and res_counter_charge() have been changed.

Keep the documentation consistent with the actual function prototypes.

11 years agospi: spi_write_then_read() bugfixes
David Brownell [Mon, 13 Apr 2009 21:39:57 +0000]
spi: spi_write_then_read() bugfixes

The "simplify spi_write_then_read()" patch included two regressions from
the 2.6.27 behaviors:

 - The data it wrote out during the (full duplex) read side
   of the transfer was not zeroed.

 - It fails completely on half duplex hardware, such as
   Microwire and most "3-wire" SPI variants.

So, revert that patch.  A revised version should be submitted at some
point, which can get the speedup on standard hardware (full duplex)
without breaking on less-capable half-duplex stuff.

asm-generic/siginfo.h: update NSIGTRAP definition

commit da654b74bda14c45a7d98c731bf3c1a43b6b74e2
Author: Srinivasa Ds <srinivasa@in.ibm.com>
Date:   Tue Sep 23 15:23:52 2008 +0530

    signals: demultiplexing SIGTRAP signal

forgot to update the NSIGTRAP define in asm-generic/siginfo.h to the new
number of sigtrap subcodes.  Nothing in the tree seems to use it, but
presumably something in user space might.  So update it.
