Merge tag 'device-for-3.4' of git://git./linux/kernel/git/paulg/linux

Pull <linux/device.h> avoidance patches from Paul Gortmaker:
 "Nearly every subsystem has some kind of header with a proto like:

void foo(struct device *dev);

  and yet there is no reason for most of these guys to care about the
  sub fields within the device struct.  This allows us to significantly
  reduce the scope of headers including headers.  For this instance, a
  reduction of about 40% is achieved by replacing the include with the
  simple fact that the device is some kind of a struct.

  Unlike the much larger module.h cleanup, this one is simply two
  commits.  One to fix the implicit <linux/device.h> users, and then one
  to delete the device.h includes from the linux/include/ dir wherever
  possible."

Merge tag 'bug-for-3.4' of git://git./linux/kernel/git/paulg/linux

Pull <linux/bug.h> cleanup from Paul Gortmaker:
 "The changes shown here are to unify linux's BUG support under the one
  <linux/bug.h> file.  Due to historical reasons, we have some BUG code
  in bug.h and some in kernel.h -- i.e.  the support for BUILD_BUG in
  linux/kernel.h predates the addition of linux/bug.h, but old code in
  kernel.h wasn't moved to bug.h at that time.  As a band-aid, kernel.h
  was including <asm/bug.h> to pseudo link them.

  This has caused confusion[1] and general yuck/WTF[2] reactions.  Here
  is an example that violates the principle of least surprise:

CC lib/string.o
      lib/string.c: In function 'strlcat':
      lib/string.c:225:2: error: implicit declaration of function 'BUILD_BUG_ON'
      make[2]: *** [lib/string.o] Error 1
      $
      $ grep linux/bug.h lib/string.c
      #include <linux/bug.h>
      $

  We've included <linux/bug.h> for the BUG infrastructure and yet we
  still get a compile fail! [We've not kernel.h for BUILD_BUG_ON.] Ugh -
  very confusing for someone who is new to kernel development.

  With the above in mind, the goals of this changeset are:

  1) find and fix any include/*.h files that were relying on the
     implicit presence of BUG code.
  2) find and fix any C files that were consuming kernel.h and hence
     relying on implicitly getting some/all BUG code.
  3) Move the BUG related code living in kernel.h to <linux/bug.h>
  4) remove the asm/bug.h from kernel.h to finally break the chain.

  During development, the order was more like 3-4, build-test, 1-2.  But
  to ensure that git history for bisect doesn't get needless build
  failures introduced, the commits have been reorderd to fix the problem
  areas in advance.

 - Rewrite of sysctl for speed and clarity.

   Insert/remove/Lookup in sysctl are all now O(NlogN) operations, and
   are no longer bottlenecks in the process of adding and removing
   network devices.

   and the code can all be found in fs/proc/proc_sysctl.c.  Hopefully
   this means the code is now approachable.

   Much thanks is owed to Lucian Grinjincu for keeping at this until

proc-ns: use d_set_d_op() API to set dentry ops in proc_ns_instantiate().

The namespace cleanup path leaks a dentry which holds a reference count
on a network namespace.  Keeping that network namespace from being freed
when the last user goes away.  Leaving things like vlan devices in the

If you use ip netns add for much real work this problem becomes apparent
pretty quickly.  It light testing the problem hides because frequently
you simply don't notice the leak.

Process accounting applications as top, ps visit some files under
/proc/<pid>.  With seq_put_decimal_ull(), we can optimize /proc/<pid>/stat
and /proc/<pid>/statm files.

This patch adds
  - seq_put_decimal_ll() for signed values.
  - allow delimiter == 0.
  - convert seq_printf() to seq_put_decimal_ull/ll in /proc/stat, statm.

Test result on a system with 2000+ procs.

7 years agoproc: speed up /proc/stat handling
Eric Dumazet [Fri, 23 Mar 2012 22:02:53 +0000]
proc: speed up /proc/stat handling

On a typical 16 cpus machine, "cat /proc/stat" gives more than 4096 bytes,
and is slow :

  # strace -T -o /tmp/STRACE cat /proc/stat | wc -c
  5826
  # grep "cpu " /tmp/STRACE
  read(0, "cpu  1949310 19 2144714 12117253"..., 32768) = 5826 <0.001504>

Thats partly because show_stat() must be called twice since initial
buffer size is too small (4096 bytes for less than 32 possible cpus)

Fix this by :

 1) Taking into account nr_irqs in the initial buffer sizing.

 2) Using ksize() to allow better filling of initial buffer.

Jason Baron [Fri, 23 Mar 2012 22:02:51 +0000]
coredump: add VM_NODUMP, MADV_NODUMP, MADV_CLEAR_NODUMP

Since we no longer need the VM_ALWAYSDUMP flag, let's use the freed bit
for 'VM_NODUMP' flag.  The idea is is to add a new madvise() flag:
MADV_DONTDUMP, which can be set by applications to specifically request
memory regions which should not dump core.

The specific application I have in mind is qemu: we can add a flag there
that wouldn't dump all of guest memory when qemu dumps core.  This flag
might also be useful for security sensitive apps that want to absolutely
make sure that parts of memory are not dumped.  To clear the flag use:
MADV_DODUMP.

7 years agocoredump: remove VM_ALWAYSDUMP flag
Jason Baron [Fri, 23 Mar 2012 22:02:51 +0000]
coredump: remove VM_ALWAYSDUMP flag

The motivation for this patchset was that I was looking at a way for a
qemu-kvm process, to exclude the guest memory from its core dump, which
can be quite large.  There are already a number of filter flags in
/proc/<pid>/coredump_filter, however, these allow one to specify 'types'
of kernel memory, not specific address ranges (which is needed in this
case).

Since there are no more vma flags available, the first patch eliminates
the need for the 'VM_ALWAYSDUMP' flag.  The flag is used internally by
the kernel to mark vdso and vsyscall pages.  However, it is simple
enough to check if a vma covers a vdso or vsyscall page without the need
for this flag.

The second patch then replaces the 'VM_ALWAYSDUMP' flag with a new
'VM_NODUMP' flag, which can be set by userspace using new madvise flags:
'MADV_DONTDUMP', and unset via 'MADV_DODUMP'.  The core dump filters
continue to work the same as before unless 'MADV_DONTDUMP' is set on the
region.

The qemu code which implements this features is at:

  http://people.redhat.com/~jbaron/qemu-dump/qemu-dump.patch

In my testing the qemu core dump shrunk from 383MB -> 13MB with this
patch.

I also believe that the 'MADV_DONTDUMP' flag might be useful for
security sensitive apps, which might want to select which areas are
dumped.

This patch:

The VM_ALWAYSDUMP flag is currently used by the coredump code to
indicate that a vma is part of a vsyscall or vdso section.  However, we
can determine if a vma is in one these sections by checking it against
the gate_vma and checking for a non-NULL return value from
arch_vma_name().  Thus, freeing a valuable vma bit.

7 years agokmod: make __request_module() killable
Oleg Nesterov [Fri, 23 Mar 2012 22:02:50 +0000]
kmod: make __request_module() killable

As Tetsuo Handa pointed out, request_module() can stress the system
while the oom-killed caller sleeps in TASK_UNINTERRUPTIBLE.

The task T uses "almost all" memory, then it does something which
triggers request_module().  Say, it can simply call sys_socket().  This
in turn needs more memory and leads to OOM.  oom-killer correctly
chooses T and kills it, but this can't help because it sleeps in
TASK_UNINTERRUPTIBLE and after that oom-killer becomes "disabled" by the
TIF_MEMDIE task T.

Make __request_module() killable.  The only necessary change is that
call_modprobe() should kmalloc argv and module_name, they can't live in
the stack if we use UMH_KILLABLE.  This memory is freed via
call_usermodehelper_freeinfo()->cleanup.

7 years agousermodehelper: implement UMH_KILLABLE
Oleg Nesterov [Fri, 23 Mar 2012 22:02:47 +0000]
usermodehelper: implement UMH_KILLABLE

Implement UMH_KILLABLE, should be used along with UMH_WAIT_EXEC/PROC.
The caller must ensure that subprocess_info->path/etc can not go away
until call_usermodehelper_freeinfo().

call_usermodehelper_exec(UMH_KILLABLE) does
wait_for_completion_killable.  If it fails, it uses
xchg(&sub_info->complete, NULL) to serialize with umh_complete() which
does the same xhcg() to access sub_info->complete.

If call_usermodehelper_exec wins, it can safely return.  umh_complete()
should get NULL and call call_usermodehelper_freeinfo().

Otherwise we know that umh_complete() was already called, in this case
call_usermodehelper_exec() falls back to wait_for_completion() which
should succeed "very soon".

Note: UMH_NO_WAIT == -1 but it obviously should not be used with
UMH_KILLABLE.  We delay the neccessary cleanup to simplify the back
porting.

signal: zap_pid_ns_processes: s/SEND_SIG_NOINFO/SEND_SIG_FORCED/

Change zap_pid_ns_processes() to use SEND_SIG_FORCED, it looks more
clear compared to SEND_SIG_NOINFO which relies on from_ancestor_ns logic
send_signal().

It is also more efficient if we need to kill a lot of tasks because it
doesn't alloc sigqueue.

While at it, add the __fatal_signal_pending(task) check as a minor
optimization.

Oleg Nesterov [Fri, 23 Mar 2012 22:02:45 +0000]

Change oom_kill_task() to use do_send_sig_info(SEND_SIG_FORCED) instead
of force_sig(SIGKILL).  With the recent changes we do not need force_ to
kill the CLONE_NEWPID tasks.

And this is more correct.  force_sig() can race with the exiting thread

do_send_sig_info(group => true) kille the whole process.

7 years agosignal: give SEND_SIG_FORCED more power to beat SIGNAL_UNKILLABLE
Oleg Nesterov [Fri, 23 Mar 2012 22:02:44 +0000]
signal: give SEND_SIG_FORCED more power to beat SIGNAL_UNKILLABLE

force_sig_info() and friends have the special semantics for synchronous
signals, this interface should not be used if the target is not current.
And it needs the fixes, in particular the clearing of SIGNAL_UNKILLABLE
is not exactly right.

However there are callers which have to use force_ exactly because it
clears SIGNAL_UNKILLABLE and thus it can kill the CLONE_NEWPID tasks,
although this is almost always is wrong by various reasons.

With this patch SEND_SIG_FORCED ignores SIGNAL_UNKILLABLE, like we do if
the signal comes from the ancestor namespace.

This makes the naming in prepare_signal() paths insane, fixed by the
next cleanup.

Note: this only affects SIGKILL/SIGSTOP, but this is enough for
force_sig() abusers.

Matt Fleming [Fri, 23 Mar 2012 22:02:43 +0000]
Hexagon: use set_current_blocked() and block_sigmask()

As described in e6fa16ab9c1e ("signal: sigprocmask() should do
retarget_shared_pending()") the modification of current->blocked is
incorrect as we need to check whether the signal we're about to block is
pending in the shared queue.

Also, use the new helper function introduced in commit 5e6292c0f28f
("signal: add block_sigmask() for adding sigmask to current->blocked")
which centralises the code for updating current->blocked after
successfully delivering a signal and reduces the amount of duplicate
code across architectures.  In the past some architectures got this code
wrong, so using this helper function should stop that from happening
again.

Denys Vlasenko [Fri, 23 Mar 2012 22:02:42 +0000]
ptrace: make PTRACE_SEIZE set ptrace options specified in 'data' parameter

This can be used to close a few corner cases in strace where we get
unwanted racy behavior after attach, but before we have a chance to set
options (the notorious post-execve SIGTRAP comes to mind), and removes
the need to track "did we set opts for this task" state in strace
internals.

While we are at it:

Make it possible to extend SEIZE in the future with more functionality
by passing non-zero 'addr' parameter.  To that end, error out if 'addr'
is non-zero.  PTRACE_ATTACH did not (and still does not) have such
check, and users (strace) do pass garbage there...  let's avoid
repeating this mistake with SEIZE.

Set all task->ptrace bits in one operation - before this change, we were
adding PT_SEIZED and PT_PTRACE_CAP with task->ptrace |= BIT ops.  This
was probably ok (not a bug), but let's be on a safer side.

Changes since v2: use (unsigned long) casts instead of (long) ones, move
PTRACE_SEIZE_DEVEL-related code to separate lines of code.

ptrace: simplify PTRACE_foo constants and PTRACE_SETOPTIONS code

Exchange PT_TRACESYSGOOD and PT_PTRACE_CAP bit positions, which makes
PT_option bits contiguous and therefore makes code in
ptrace_setoptions() much simpler.

Every PTRACE_O_TRACEevent is defined to (1 << PTRACE_EVENT_event)
instead of using explicit numeric constants, to ensure we don't mess up
relationship between bit positions and event ids.

PT_EVENT_FLAG_SHIFT was not particularly useful, PT_OPT_FLAG_SHIFT with
value of PT_EVENT_FLAG_SHIFT-1 is easier to use.

PT_TRACE_MASK constant is nuked, the only its use is replaced by
(PTRACE_O_MASK << PT_OPT_FLAG_SHIFT).

Denys Vlasenko [Fri, 23 Mar 2012 22:02:40 +0000]
ptrace: don't modify flags on PTRACE_SETOPTIONS failure

On ptrace(PTRACE_SETOPTIONS, pid, 0, <opts>), we used to set those
option bits which are known, and then fail with -EINVAL if there are
some unknown bits in <opts>.

This is inconsistent with typical error handling, which does not change
any state if input is invalid.

This patch changes PTRACE_SETOPTIONS behavior so that in this case, we
return -EINVAL and don't change any bits in task->ptrace.

It's very unlikely that there is userspace code in the wild which will
be affected by this change: it should have the form

    ptrace(PTRACE_SETOPTIONS, pid, 0, PTRACE_O_BOGUSOPT)

where PTRACE_O_BOGUSOPT is a constant unknown to the kernel.  But kernel
headers, naturally, don't contain any PTRACE_O_BOGUSOPTs, thus the only
way userspace can use one if it defines one itself.  I can't see why
anyone would do such a thing deliberately.

drivers/rtc: remove IRQF_DISABLED

Since commit e58aa3d2d0cc ("genirq: run irq handlers with interrupts
disabled") we run all interrupt handlers with interrupts disabled and we
even check and yell when an interrupt handler returns with interrupts
enabled - see commit b738a50a2026 ("genirq: warn when handler enables
interrupts").

So now this flag is a NOOP and can be removed.

drivers/rtc/rtc-twl.c: return correct RTC event from ISR

Following changes are made as part of this change:

1. As TWL RTC supports periodic interrupt, the correct event should be
   RTC_PF instead of RTC_UF.

2. No need to initialize variable "events" to 0 & then OR it with the
   event values.  Hence fixing it.

7 years agortc/rtc-spear: call platform_set_drvdata() before registering rtc device
Viresh Kumar [Fri, 23 Mar 2012 22:02:30 +0000]
rtc/rtc-spear: call platform_set_drvdata() before registering rtc device

rtc_device_register() calls rtc-spear routines internally.  These
routines call dev_get_drvdata() to get struct spear_rtc_config.
Currently, platform_set_drvdata is called after rtc device is
registered.  This causes system to crash, as dev_get_drvdata returns
NULL.

For this we need to call platform_set_drvdata() before registering rtc
device.  This requires further cleanup, that leads to removal of
dev_set_drvdata on rtc->dev, which was just not required at all.

Also, we change the parameter to request_irq and pass pointer to config
instead of pointer to rtc struct.

This patch brings all above changes.

7 years agoepoll: comment the funky #ifdef
Steven Rostedt [Fri, 23 Mar 2012 22:02:27 +0000]
epoll: comment the funky #ifdef

Looking for a bug in -rt, I stumbled across this code here from: commit
2dfa4eeab0fc ("epoll keyed wakeups: teach epoll about hints coming with
the wakeup key"), specifically:

  #ifdef CONFIG_DEBUG_LOCK_ALLOC
  static inline void ep_wake_up_nested(wait_queue_head_t *wqueue,
                                      unsigned long events, int subclass)
  {
         unsigned long flags;

         spin_lock_irqsave_nested(&wqueue->lock, flags, subclass);
         wake_up_locked_poll(wqueue, events);
         spin_unlock_irqrestore(&wqueue->lock, flags);
  }
  #else
  static inline void ep_wake_up_nested(wait_queue_head_t *wqueue,
                                      unsigned long events, int subclass)
  {
         wake_up_poll(wqueue, events);
  }
  #endif

You change the function of ep_wake_up_nested() depending on whether
CONFIG_DEBUG_LOCK_ALLOC is set or not.  This looks awfully suspicious,
and there's no comment to explain why.  I initially thought that this
was trying to fool lockdep, and hiding a real bug.

Investigating it, I found the creation of wake_up_nested() (which no
longer exists) but was created for the sole purpose of epoll and its
strange wake ups, as explained in commit 0ccf831cbee9 ("lockdep:
annotate epoll")

Although the commit message says "annotate epoll" the change log is much
better at explaining what is happening than what is in the actual code.
Thus a comment is really necessary here.  And to save the time of other
developers from having to go trudging through the git logs trying to
figure out why this code exists.

I took parts of the change log and placed it into a comment above the
affected code.  This will make the description of what is happening more
visible to new developers that have to look at this code for the first
time.

7 years agopoll: add poll_requested_events() and poll_does_not_wait() functions
Hans Verkuil [Fri, 23 Mar 2012 22:02:27 +0000]
poll: add poll_requested_events() and poll_does_not_wait() functions

In some cases the poll() implementation in a driver has to do different
things depending on the events the caller wants to poll for.  An example
is when a driver needs to start a DMA engine if the caller polls for
POLLIN, but doesn't want to do that if POLLIN is not requested but instead
only POLLOUT or POLLPRI is requested.  This is something that can happen
in the video4linux subsystem among others.

Unfortunately, the current epoll/poll/select implementation doesn't
provide that information reliably.  The poll_table_struct does have it: it
has a key field with the event mask.  But once a poll() call matches one
or more bits of that mask any following poll() calls are passed a NULL
poll_table pointer.

Also, the eventpoll implementation always left the key field at ~0 instead
of using the requested events mask.

This was changed in eventpoll.c so the key field now contains the actual
events that should be polled for as set by the caller.

The solution to the NULL poll_table pointer is to set the qproc field to
NULL in poll_table once poll() matches the events, not the poll_table
pointer itself.  That way drivers can obtain the mask through a new
poll_requested_events inline.

The poll_table_struct can still be NULL since some kernel code calls it
internally (netfs_state_poll() in ./drivers/staging/pohmelfs/netfs.h).  In
that case poll_requested_events() returns ~0 (i.e.  all events).

Very rarely drivers might want to know whether poll_wait will actually
wait.  If another earlier file descriptor in the set already matched the
events the caller wanted to wait for, then the kernel will return from the
select() call without waiting.  This might be useful information in order
to avoid doing expensive work.

A new helper function poll_does_not_wait() is added that drivers can use
to detect this situation.  This is now used in sock_poll_wait() in
include/net/sock.h.  This was the only place in the kernel that needed
this information.

Drivers should no longer access any of the poll_table internals, but use
the poll_requested_events() and poll_does_not_wait() access functions
instead.  In order to enforce that the poll_table fields are now prepended
with an underscore and a comment was added warning against using them
directly.

This required a change in unix_dgram_poll() in unix/af_unix.c which used
the key field to get the requested events.  It's been replaced by a call
to poll_requested_events().

For qproc it was especially important to change its name since the
behavior of that field changes with this patch since this function pointer
can now be NULL when that wasn't possible in the past.

Any driver accessing the qproc or key fields directly will now fail to compile.

Some notes regarding the correctness of this patch: the driver's poll()
function is called with a 'struct poll_table_struct *wait' argument.  This
pointer may or may not be NULL, drivers can never rely on it being one or
the other as that depends on whether or not an earlier file descriptor in
the select()'s fdset matched the requested events.

There are only three things a driver can do with the wait argument:

1) obtain the key field:

events = wait ? wait->key : ~0;

   This will still work although it should be replaced with the new
   poll_requested_events() function (which does exactly the same).
   This will now even work better, since wait is no longer set to NULL
   unnecessarily.

2) use the qproc callback. This could be deadly since qproc can now be
   NULL. Renaming qproc should prevent this from happening. There are no
   kernel drivers that actually access this callback directly, BTW.

3) test whether wait == NULL to determine whether poll would return without
   waiting. This is no longer sufficient as the correct test is now
   wait == NULL || wait->_qproc == NULL.

   However, the worst that can happen here is a slight performance hit in
   the case where wait != NULL and wait->_qproc == NULL. In that case the
   driver will assume that poll_wait() will actually add the fd to the set
   of waiting file descriptors. Of course, poll_wait() will not do that
   since it tests for wait->_qproc. This will not break anything, though.

   There is only one place in the whole kernel where this happens
   (sock_poll_wait() in include/net/sock.h) and that code will be replaced
   by a call to poll_does_not_wait() in the next patch.

   Note that even if wait->_qproc != NULL drivers cannot rely on poll_wait()
   actually waiting. The next file descriptor from the set might match the
   event mask and thus any possible waits will never happen.

7 years agocrc32: optimize loop counter for x86
Bob Pearson [Fri, 23 Mar 2012 22:02:24 +0000]
crc32: optimize loop counter for x86

Add two changes that improve the performance of x86 systems

1. replace main loop with incrementing counter this change improves
   the performance of the selftest by about 5-6% on Nehalem CPUs.  The
   apparent reason is that the compiler can use the loop index to perform
   an indexed memory access.  This is reported to make the performance of
   PowerPC CPUs to get worse.

2. replace the rem_len loop with incrementing counter this change
   improves the performance of the selftest, which has more than the usual
   number of occurances, by about 1-2% on x86 CPUs.  In actual work loads
   the length is most often a multiple of 4 bytes and this code does not
   get executed as often if at all.  Again this change is reported to make
   the performance of PowerPC get worse.

7 years agocrc32: make CRC_*_BITS definition correspond to actual bit counts
Bob Pearson [Fri, 23 Mar 2012 22:02:23 +0000]
crc32: make CRC_*_BITS definition correspond to actual bit counts

crc32.c provides a choice of one of several algorithms for computing the
LSB and LSB versions of the CRC32 checksum based on the parameters
CRC_LE_BITS and CRC_BE_BITS.

In the original version the values 1, 2, 4 and 8 respectively selected
versions of the alrogithm that computed the crc 1, 2, 4 and 32 bits as a
time.

This patch series adds a new version that computes the CRC 64 bits at a
time.  To make things easier to understand the parameter has been
reinterpreted to actually stand for the number of bits processed in each
step of the algorithm so that the old value 8 has been replaced with the
value 32.

This also allows us to add in a widely used crc algorithm that computes
the crc 8 bits at a time called the Sarwate algorithm.

crc32: miscellaneous cleanups

Misc cleanup of lib/crc32.c and related files.

- remove unnecessary header files.

- straighten out some convoluted ifdef's

- rewrite some references to 2 dimensional arrays as 1 dimensional
  arrays to make them correct.  I.e.  replace tab[i] with tab[0][i].

- a few trivial whitespace changes

- fix a warning in gen_crc32tables.c caused by a mismatch in the type of
  the pointer passed to output table.  Since the table is only used at
  kernel compile time, it is simpler to make the table big enough to hold
  the largest column size used.  One cannot make the column size smaller
  in output_table because it has to be used by both the le and be tables
  and they can have different column sizes.

7 years agocrc32: simplify unit test code
Bob Pearson [Fri, 23 Mar 2012 22:02:22 +0000]
crc32: simplify unit test code

Replace the unit test provided in crc32.c, which doesn't have a makefile
and doesn't compile with current headers, with a simpler self test
routine that also gives a measure of performance and runs at module init
time.  The self test option can be enabled through a configuration
option CONFIG_CRC32_SELFTEST.

The test stresses the pre and post loops and is thus not very realistic
since actual uses will likely have addresses and lengths that are at
least 4 byte aligned.  However, the main loop is long enough so that the
performance is dominated by that loop.

The expected values for crc32_le and crc32_be were generated with the
original version of crc32.c using CRC_BITS_LE = 8 and CRC_BITS_BE = 8.
These values were then used to check all the values of the BITS
parameters in both the original and new versions.

The performance results show some variability from run to run in spite
of attempts to both warm the cache and reduce the amount of OS noise by
limiting interrutps during the test.  To get comparable results and to
analyse options wrt performance the best time reported over a small
sample of runs has been taken.

7 years agocrc32: remove two instances of trailing whitespaces
Bob Pearson [Fri, 23 Mar 2012 22:02:21 +0000]
crc32: remove two instances of trailing whitespaces

This patchset (re)uses Bob Pearson's crc32 slice-by-8 code to stamp out
a software crc32c implementation.  It removes the crc32c implementation
in crypto/ in favor of using the stamped-out one in lib/.  There is also
a change to Kconfig so that the kernel builder can pick an
implementation best suited for the hardware.

The motivation for this patchset is that I am working on adding full
metadata checksumming to ext4.  As far as performance impact of adding
checksumming goes, I see nearly no change with a standard mail server
ffsb simulation.  On a test that involves only file creation and
deletion and extent tree writes, I see a drop of about 50 pcercent with
the current kernel crc32c implementation; this improves to a drop of
about 20 percent with the enclosed crc32c code.

When metadata is usually a small fraction of total IO, this new
implementation doesn't help much because metadata is usually a small
fraction of total IO.  However, when we are doing IO that is almost all
metadata (such as rm -rf'ing a tree), then this patch speeds up the
operation substantially.

Incidentally, given that iscsi, sctp, and btrfs also use crc32c, this
patchset should improve their speed as well.  I have not yet quantified
that, however.  This latest submission combines Bob's patches from late
August 2011 with mine so that they can be one coherent patch set.
Please excuse my inability to combine some of the patches; I've been
advised to leave Bob's patches alone and build atop them instead.  :/

Since the last posting, I've also collected some crc32c test results on
a bunch of different x86/powerpc/sparc platforms.  The results can be
viewed here: http://goo.gl/sgt3i ; the "crc32-kern-le" and "crc32c"
columns describe the performance of the kernel's current crc32 and
crc32c software implementations.  The "crc32c-by8-le" column shows
crc32c performance with this patchset applied.  I expect crc32
performance to be roughly the same.

The two _boost columns at the right side of the spreadsheet shows how much
faster the new implementation is over the old one.  As you can see, crc32
rises substantially, and crc32c experiences a huge increase.

This patch:

- remove trailing whitespace from lib/crc32.c
- remove trailing whitespace from lib/crc32defs.h

7 years agocheckpatch: check for quoted strings broken across lines
Josh Triplett [Fri, 23 Mar 2012 22:02:21 +0000]
checkpatch: check for quoted strings broken across lines

checkpatch already makes an exception to the 80-column rule for quoted
strings, and Documentation/CodingStyle recommends not splitting quoted
strings across lines, because it breaks the ability to grep for the
string.  Rather than just permitting this, actively warn about quoted
strings split across lines.

Test case:

void context(void)
{
struct { unsigned magic; const char *strdata; } foo[] = {
{ 42, "these strings"
      "do not produce warnings" },
{ 256, "though perhaps"
       "they should" },
};
pr_err("this string"
       " should produce a warning\n");
pr_err("this multi-line string\n"
       "should not produce a warning\n");
asm ("this asm\n\t"
     "should not produce a warning");
}

Results of checkpatch on that test case:

WARNING: quoted string split across lines
+        " should produce a warning\n");

total: 0 errors, 1 warnings, 15 lines checked

- Generate a 64-bit pattern more efficiently

memchr_inv needs to generate a 64-bit pattern filled with a target
character.  The operation can be done by more efficient way.

- Don't call the slow check_bytes() if the memory area is 64-bit aligned

memchr_inv compares contiguous 64-bit words with the 64-bit pattern as
much as possible.  The outside of the region is checked by check_bytes()
that scans for each byte.  Unfortunately, the first 64-bit word is
unexpectedly scanned by check_bytes() even if the memory area is aligned
to a 64-bit boundary.

Both changes were originally suggested by Eric Dumazet.

led-class: change back LEDS_CLASS to tristate instead of bool

After moving some core functions to led-core.c, led-class.c can be built
as module again.
