13 years ago[PATCH] usr/gen_init_cpio.c: support for hard links
Luciano Rocha [Sat, 10 Feb 2007 09:44:45 +0000]
[PATCH] usr/gen_init_cpio.c: support for hard links

Extend usr/gen_init_cpio.c "file" entry, adding support for hard links.

Previous format:
file <name> <location> <mode> <uid> <gid>

New format:
file <name> <location> <mode> <uid> <gid> [<hard links>]

The hard links specification is optional, keeping the previous
behaviour.

All hard links are defined sequentially in the resulting cpio and the
file data is present only in the last link. This is the behaviour of
GNU's cpio and is supported by the kernel initramfs extractor.

[PATCH] disable init/initramfs.c: architectures

Update all arch/*/kernel/vmlinux.lds.S to not include space for initramfs
when CONFIG_BLK_DEV_INITRAMFS is not selected.  This saves another 4 kbytes
on most platfoms (some reserve PAGE_SIZE for initramfs).

13 years ago[PATCH] disable init/initramfs.c
Jean-Paul Saman [Sat, 10 Feb 2007 09:44:43 +0000]
[PATCH] disable init/initramfs.c

The file init/initramfs.c is always compiled and linked in the kernel
vmlinux even when BLK_DEV_RAM and BLK_DEV_INITRD are disabled and the
system isn't using any form of an initramfs or initrd.  In this situation
the code is only used to unpack a (static) default initial rootfilesystem.
The current init/initramfs.c code.  usr/initramfs_data.o compiles to a size
of ~15 kbytes.  Disabling BLK_DEV_RAM and BLK_DEV_INTRD shrinks the kernel
code size with ~60 Kbytes.

This patch avoids compiling in the code and data for initramfs support if
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_INITRD is not defined.  Instead of the initramfs code and
data it uses a small routine in init/noinitramfs.c to setup an initial
static default environment for mounting a rootfilesystem later on in the
kernel initialisation process.  The new code is: 164 bytes of size.

The patch is separated in two parts:
1) doesn't compile initramfs code when CONFIG_BLK_DEV_INITRD is not set
2) changing all plaforms vmlinux.lds.S files to not reserve an area of
PAGE_SIZE when CONFIG_BLK_DEV_INITRD is not set.

[PATCH] sysctl_{,ms_}jiffies: fix oldlen semantics

currently it's
1) if *oldlenp == 0,

2) if *oldlenp >= table->maxlen,
don't writeback more than table->maxlen bytes and rewrite *oldlenp
don't look at underlying type granularity

3) if 0 < *oldlenp < table->maxlen,
*cough*
string sysctls don't writeback more than *oldlenp bytes.
OK, that's because sizeof(char) == 1

int sysctls writeback anything in (0, table->maxlen] range
Though accept integers divisible by sizeof(int) for writing.

sysctl_jiffies and sysctl_ms_jiffies don't writeback anything but
sizeof(int), which violates 1) and 2).

So, make sysctl_jiffies and sysctl_ms_jiffies accept
a) *oldlenp == 0, not doing writeback
b) *oldlenp >= sizeof(int), writing one integer.

-EINVAL still returned for *oldlenp == 1, 2, 3.

[PATCH] vt: refactor console SAK processing

This does several things.
- It moves looking up of the current foreground console into process
  context where we can safely take the semaphore that protects this
  operation.
- It uses the new flavor of work queue processing.
- This generates a factor of do_SAK, __do_SAK that runs immediately.
- This calls __do_SAK with the console semaphore held ensuring nothing
  else happens to the console while we process the SAK operation.
- With the console SAK processing moved into process context this
  patch removes the xchg operations that I used to attempt to attomically
  update struct pid, because of the strange locking used in the SAK processing.
  With SAK using the normal console semaphore nothing special is needed.

Add retain_initrd option to control freeing of initrd memory after
extraction.  By default, free memory as previously.

The first boot will need to hold a copy of the in memory fs for the second
boot.  This image can be large (much larger than the kernel), hence we can
save time when the memory loader is slow.  Also, it reduces the memory
footprint while extracting the first boot since you don't need another copy
of the fs.

This patch fixes some missing ptrace bits on x86_64.  PTRACE_ARCH_PRCTL is
hooked up and implemented.  This required generalizing arch_prctl_skas
slightly to take a task_struct to modify.  Previously, it always operated on
current.

Reading and writing the debug registers is also enabled by un-ifdefing the
code that implements that.  It turns out that x86_64 is identical to i386, so

[PATCH] uml: x86_64 thread fixes

x86_64 needs some TLS fixes.  What was missing was remembering the child
thread id during clone and stuffing it into the child during each context
switch.

The %fs value is stored separately in the thread structure since the host
controls what effect it has on the actual register file.  The host also needs
to store it in its own thread struct, so we need the value kept outside the
register file.

arch_prctl_skas was fixed to call PTRACE_ARCH_PRCTL appropriately.  There is
some saving and restoring of registers in the ARCH_SET_* cases so that the
correct set of registers are changed on the host and restored to the process
when it runs again.

Jeff Dike [Sat, 10 Feb 2007 09:44:28 +0000]
[PATCH] uml: fix error output during early boot

The startup code panics a lot if anything goes wrong early on.  This is wrong
for several reasons, like the kernel isn't running, so you can't really be
calling into it yet, but the harm comes from useful error messages being
trapped in the printk ring where no one will ever see them.

This patch changes these panics to perror and printf in wrappers which also
exit.  Normal, informational, prints are also wrapped so that fflush(stdout)
is called after each one.  This is so the output appears in the correct
sequence in the event of an error.

not.  This is compensated for by checking that a transport structure is not

[PATCH] uml: return hotplug errors to host

I noticed that errors happening while hotplugging devices from the host were
never returned back to the mconsole client.  In some cases, success was
returned instead of even an information-free error.

This patch cleans that up by having the low-level configuration code pass back
an error string along with an error code.  At the top level, which knows
whether it is early boot time or responding to an mconsole request, the string
is printk'd or returned to the mconsole client.

There are also whitespace and trivial code cleanups in the surrounding code.

13 years ago[PATCH] uml: console locking fixes
Jeff Dike [Sat, 10 Feb 2007 09:43:52 +0000]
[PATCH] uml: console locking fixes

Clean up the console driver locking.  There are various problems here,
including sleeping under a spinlock and spinlock recursion, some of which are
fixed here.  This patch deals with the locking involved with opens and closes.
 The problem is that an mconsole request to change a console's configuration
can race with an open.  Changing a configuration should only be done when a
console isn't opened.  Also, an open must be looking at a stable
configuration.  In addition, a get configuration request must observe the same
locking since it must also see a stable configuration.  With the old locking,
it was possible for this to hang indefinitely in some cases because open would
block for a long time waiting for a connection from the host while holding the
lock needed by the mconsole request.

As explained in the long comment, this is fixed by adding a spinlock for the
use count and configuration and a mutex for the actual open and close.

cannot include sched.h in any other of asm-m68k/system.h,

[PATCH] m68k: work around binutils tokenizer change

Recent as(1) doesn't think that .  terminates a macro name, so getuser.l is
_not_ treated as invoking getuser with .l as the first argument.
arch/m68k/math-emu relies on old behaviour, so it gets a lot of undefined
macros with more or less current binutils.

Note that this behaviour remains in all recent versions and is unrelated to
another binutils problems we used to have for a while (having (%a0)+ parsed
as two arguments).  This one is there to stay; it's an intentional and
documented change.

.irp <identifier> <words>
[text]
.endr
expands to a copy of text per each word, with \<identifier> replaced with
corresponding word.  Again, what happens depends on whether gas_ident.x
is treated as one or as two tokens; in the former case we'll get old_gas
incremented once, in the latter - twice.  The rest is obvious.

Unlike .macro argument list _anything_ is explicitly allowed after
.irp <identifier>; here we are on very safe ground.  And yes, it does
work with all gas variants I've got here (including vanilla 2.15, 2.16,
2.16.1 and 2.17, plus debian and FC binutils).

[PATCH] swsusp: Change pm_ops handling by userland interface

Make the userland interface of swsusp call pm_ops->finish() after
enable_nonboot_cpus() and before resume_device(), as indicated by the recent

This patch changes the SNAPSHOT_PMOPS ioctl so that its first function,
PMOPS_PREPARE, only sets a switch turning the platform suspend mode on, and
its last function, PMOPS_FINISH, only checks if the platform mode is enabled.
This should allow the older userland tools to work with new kernels without
any modifications.

13 years ago[PATCH] PM: Change code ordering in main.c
Rafael J. Wysocki [Sat, 10 Feb 2007 09:43:31 +0000]
[PATCH] PM: Change code ordering in main.c

As indicated in a recent thread on Linux-PM, it's necessary to call
pm_ops->finish() before devce_resume(), but enable_nonboot_cpus() has to be
called before pm_ops->finish() (cf.
http://lists.osdl.org/pipermail/linux-pm/2006-November/004164.html).  For
consistency, it seems reasonable to call disable_nonboot_cpus() after
device_suspend().

This way the suspend code will remain symmetrical with respect to the resume
code and it may allow us to speed up things in the future by suspending and
resuming devices and/or saving the suspend image in many threads.

The following series of patches reorders the suspend and resume code so that
nonboot CPUs are disabled after devices have been suspended and enabled before
the devices are resumed.  It also causes pm_ops->finish() to be called after
enable_nonboot_cpus() wherever necessary.

This patch:

Change the ordering of code in kernel/power/main.c so that device_suspend()
is called before disable_nonboot_cpus() and pm_ops->finish() is called after
enable_nonboot_cpus() and before device_resume(), as indicated by recent

Eric Paris [Sat, 10 Feb 2007 09:43:19 +0000]
[PATCH] make reading /proc/sys/kernel/cap-bould not require CAP_SYS_MODULE

Reading /proc/sys/kernel/cap-bound requires CAP_SYS_MODULE.  (see
proc_dointvec_bset in kernel/sysctl.c)

sysctl appears to drive all over proc reading everything it can get it's
hands on and is complaining when it is being denied access to read
cap-bound.  Clearly writing to cap-bound should be a sensitive operation
but requiring CAP_SYS_MODULE to read cap-bound seems a bit to strong.  I
believe the information could with reasonable certainty be obtained by
looking at a bunch of the output of /proc/pid/status which has very low
security protection, so at best we are just getting a little obfuscation of
information.

Currently SELinux policy has to 'dontaudit' capability checks for
CAP_SYS_MODULE for things like sysctl which just want to read cap-bound.
In doing so we also as a byproduct have to hide warnings of potential
exploits such as if at some time that sysctl actually tried to load a
module.  I wondered if anyone would have a problem opening cap-bound up to
read from anyone?

13 years ago[PATCH] do not disturb page referenced state when unmapping memory range
Ken Chen [Sat, 10 Feb 2007 09:43:18 +0000]
[PATCH] do not disturb page referenced state when unmapping memory range

When kernel unmaps an address range, it needs to transfer PTE state into
page struct.  Currently, kernel transfer access bit via
mark_page_accessed().  The call to mark_page_accessed in the unmap path
doesn't look logically correct.

At unmap time, calling mark_page_accessed will causes page LRU state to be
bumped up one step closer to more recently used state.  It is causing quite
a bit headache in a scenario when a process creates a shmem segment, touch
a whole bunch of pages, then unmaps it.  The unmapping takes a long time
because mark_page_accessed() will start moving pages from inactive to
active list.

I'm not too much concerned with moving the page from one list to another in
LRU.  Sooner or later it might be moved because of multiple mappings from
various processes.  But it just doesn't look logical that when user asks a
range to be unmapped, it's his intention that the process is no longer
interested in these pages.  Moving those pages to active list (or bumping
up a state towards more active) seems to be an over reaction.  It also
prolongs unmapping latency which is the core issue I'm trying to solve.

As suggested by Peter, we should still preserve the info on pte young
pages, but not more.

13 years ago[PATCH] simplify shmem_aops.set_page_dirty() method
Ken Chen [Sat, 10 Feb 2007 09:43:15 +0000]
[PATCH] simplify shmem_aops.set_page_dirty() method

shmem backed file does not have page writeback, nor it participates in
backing device's dirty or writeback accounting.  So using generic
__set_page_dirty_nobuffers() for its .set_page_dirty aops method is a bit
overkill.  It unnecessarily prolongs shm unmap latency.

For example, on a densely populated large shm segment (sevearl GBs), the
unmapping operation becomes painfully long.  Because at unmap, kernel
transfers dirty bit in PTE into page struct and to the radix tree tag.  The
operation of tagging the radix tree is particularly expensive because it
has to traverse the tree from the root to the leaf node on every dirty
page.  What's bothering is that radix tree tag is used for page write back.
 However, shmem is memory backed and there is no page write back for such
file system.  And in the end, we spend all that time tagging radix tree and
none of that fancy tagging will be used.  So let's simplify it by introduce
a new aops __set_page_dirty_no_writeback and this will speed up shm unmap.

Andy Whitcroft [Sat, 10 Feb 2007 09:43:14 +0000]
[PATCH] zoneid: fix up calculations for ZONEID_PGSHIFT

Currently if we have a non-zero ZONES_SHIFT we assume we are able to rely
on that as the bottom edge of the ZONEID, if not then we use the
NODES_PGOFF as the right end of either NODES _or_ SECTION.  This latter is
more luck than judgement and would be incorrect if we reordered the
SECTION,NODE,ZONE options in the fields space.

Really what we want is the lower of the right hand end of the two fields we
are using (either NODE,ZONE or SECTION,ZONE).  Codify that explicitly.  As
always allow for there being no bits in either of the fields, such as might
be valid in a non-numa machine with only a zone NORMAL.

I have checked that the compiler is still able to constant fold all of this
away correctly.

As Andi pointed out: CONFIG_GENERIC_ISA_DMA only disables the ISA DMA

theses explicitly in each arches Kconfig.

Reviews must occur for each arch in order to determine if ZONE_DMA can be
switched off.  It can only be switched off if we know that all devices
supported by a platform are capable of performing DMA transfers to all of
memory (Some arches already support this: uml, avr32, sh sh64, parisc and
IA64/Altix).

In order to switch ZONE_DMA off conditionally, one would have to establish
a scheme by which one can assure that no drivers are enabled that are only
capable of doing I/O to a part of memory, or one needs to provide an
alternate means of performing an allocation from a specific range of memory
(like provided by alloc_pages_range()) and insure that all drivers use that
call.  In that case the arches alloc_dma_coherent() may need to be modified
to call alloc_pages_range() instead of relying on GFP_DMA.

13 years ago[PATCH] optional ZONE_DMA: introduce CONFIG_ZONE_DMA
Christoph Lameter [Sat, 10 Feb 2007 09:43:09 +0000]
[PATCH] optional ZONE_DMA: introduce CONFIG_ZONE_DMA

This patch simply defines CONFIG_ZONE_DMA for all arches.  We later do special
things with CONFIG_ZONE_DMA after the VM and an arch are prepared to work
without ZONE_DMA.

CONFIG_ZONE_DMA can be defined in two ways depending on how an architecture
handles ISA DMA.

First if CONFIG_GENERIC_ISA_DMA is set by the arch then we know that the arch
needs ZONE_DMA because ISA DMA devices are supported.  We can catch this in
mm/Kconfig and do not need to modify arch code.

Second, arches may use ZONE_DMA in an unknown way.  We set CONFIG_ZONE_DMA for
all arches that do not set CONFIG_GENERIC_ISA_DMA in order to insure backwards
compatibility.  The arches may later undefine ZONE_DMA if their arch code has
been verified to not depend on ZONE_DMA.

13 years ago[PATCH] optional ZONE_DMA: deal with cases of ZONE_DMA meaning the first zone
Christoph Lameter [Sat, 10 Feb 2007 09:43:07 +0000]
[PATCH] optional ZONE_DMA: deal with cases of ZONE_DMA meaning the first zone

This patchset follows up on the earlier work in Andrew's tree to reduce the
number of zones.  The patches allow to go to a minimum of 2 zones.  This one
allows also to make ZONE_DMA optional and therefore the number of zones can be
reduced to one.

ZONE_DMA is usually used for ISA DMA devices.  There are a number of reasons
why we would not want to have ZONE_DMA

1. Some arches do not need ZONE_DMA at all.

2. With the advent of IOMMUs DMA zones are no longer needed.
   The necessity of DMA zones may drastically be reduced
   in the future. This patchset allows a compilation of
   a kernel without that overhead.

3. Devices that require ISA DMA get rare these days. All
   my systems do not have any need for ISA DMA.

4. The presence of an additional zone unecessarily complicates
   VM operations because it must be scanned and balancing
   logic must operate on its.

5. With only ZONE_NORMAL one can reach the situation where
   we have only one zone. This will allow the unrolling of many
   loops in the VM and allows the optimization of varous
   code paths in the VM.

6. Having only a single zone in a NUMA system results in a
   1-1 correspondence between nodes and zones. Various additional
   optimizations to critical VM paths become possible.

Many systems today can operate just fine with a single zone.  If you look at
what is in ZONE_DMA then one usually sees that nothing uses it.  The DMA slabs
are empty (Some arches use ZONE_DMA instead of ZONE_NORMAL, then ZONE_NORMAL
will be empty instead).

On all of my systems (i386, x86_64, ia64) ZONE_DMA is completely empty.  Why
constantly look at an empty zone in /proc/zoneinfo and empty slab in
/proc/slabinfo?  Non i386 also frequently have no need for ZONE_DMA and zones
stay empty.

The patchset was tested on i386 (UP / SMP), x86_64 (UP, NUMA) and ia64 (NUMA).

The RFC posted earlier (see
http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-kernel&m=115231723513008&w=2) had lots
of #ifdefs in them.  An effort has been made to minize the number of #ifdefs
and make this as compact as possible.  The job was made much easier by the
ongoing efforts of others to extract common arch specific functionality.

I have been running this for awhile now on my desktop and finally Linux is
using all my available RAM instead of leaving the 16MB in ZONE_DMA untouched:

This patch:

In two places in the VM we use ZONE_DMA to refer to the first zone.  If
ZONE_DMA is optional then other zones may be first.  So simply replace
ZONE_DMA with zone 0.

This also fixes ZONETABLE_PGSHIFT.  If we have only a single zone then
ZONES_PGSHIFT may become 0 because there is no need anymore to encode the zone
number related to a pgdat.  However, we still need a zonetable to index all
the zones for each node if this is a NUMA system.  Therefore define
ZONETABLE_SHIFT unconditionally as the offset of the ZONE field in page flags.

Christoph Lameter [Sat, 10 Feb 2007 09:43:01 +0000]
[PATCH] Use ZVC for inactive and active counts

The determination of the dirty ratio to determine writeback behavior is
currently based on the number of total pages on the system.

However, not all pages in the system may be dirtied.  Thus the ratio is always
too low and can never reach 100%.  The ratio may be particularly skewed if
large hugepage allocations, slab allocations or device driver buffers make
large sections of memory not available anymore.  In that case we may get into
a situation in which f.e.  the background writeback ratio of 40% cannot be
reached anymore which leads to undesired writeback behavior.

This patchset fixes that issue by determining the ratio based on the actual
pages that may potentially be dirty.  These are the pages on the active and
the inactive list plus free pages.

The problem with those counts has so far been that it is expensive to
calculate these because counts from multiple nodes and multiple zones will
have to be summed up.  This patchset makes these counters ZVC counters.  This
means that a current sum per zone, per node and for the whole system is always
available via global variables and not expensive anymore to calculate.

The patchset results in some other good side effects:

- Removal of the various functions that sum up free, active and inactive
  page counts

- Cleanup of the functions that display information via the proc filesystem.

This patch:

The use of a ZVC for nr_inactive and nr_active allows a simplification of some
counter operations.  More ZVC functionality is used for sums etc in the
following patches.
