perf_counter tools: Adjust only prelinked symbol's addresses

I.e. we can't handle these two kinds of files in the same way:

1) prelinked system library:

[acme@doppio pahole]$ readelf -s /usr/lib64/libdw-0.141.so | egrep 'FUNC.+GLOBAL.+dwfl_report_elf'
   278: 00000030450105a0   261 FUNC    GLOBAL DEFAULT   12 dwfl_report_elf@@ELFUTILS_0.122

2) not prelinked library with debug information from a -debuginfo package:

[acme@doppio pahole]$ readelf -s /usr/lib/debug/usr/lib64/libdw-0.141.so.debug | egrep 'FUNC.+GLOBAL.+dwfl_report_elf'
   629: 00000000000105a0   261 FUNC    GLOBAL DEFAULT   12 dwfl_report_elf
[acme@doppio pahole]$

Now the numbers I got for a pahole perf run are in line with
the numbers I get from oprofile.

10 years agoperf_counter tools: Reduce perf stat measurement overhead/skew
Paul Mackerras [Mon, 29 Jun 2009 11:13:21 +0000]
perf_counter tools: Reduce perf stat measurement overhead/skew

Vince Weaver reported a 'perf stat' measurement overhead in the
count of retired instructions, which can amount to a +6000
instructions inflated count in the reported count.

At present, perf stat creates its counters on the perf process.  Thus
the counters count the fork and various other activity in both the
parent and child, such as the resolver overhead for resolving PLT
entries for any libc functions that haven't been called before, such
as execvp.

This reduces the overhead by creating the counters on the child process
after the fork, using a couple of pipes to synchronize so that the
child process waits until the parent has created the counters before
doing the exec.  To eliminate the PLT resolution overhead on calling
execvp, this does a dummy execvp first which will always fail.

With this, the overhead of executing a program goes down from over
4800 instructions to about 90 instructions on powerpc (32-bit).
This was measured with a statically-linked program written in
assembler which only does the 3 instructions needed to call _exit(0).

Before:

$ perf stat -e 0:1:u ./three

 Performance counter stats for './three':

           4858  instructions

    0.001274523  seconds time elapsed

$ perf stat -e 0:1:u ./three

10 years agoperf_counter, x86: Set global control MSR correctly
Yong Wang [Wed, 24 Jun 2009 02:13:24 +0000]
perf_counter, x86: Set global control MSR correctly

Previous code made an assumption that the power on value of global
control MSR has enabled all fixed and general purpose counters properly.

However, this is not the case for certain Intel processors, such as
Atom - and it might also be firmware dependent.

Each enable bit in IA32_PERF_GLOBAL_CTRL is AND'ed with the
enable bits for all privilege levels in the respective IA32_PERFEVTSELx
or IA32_PERF_FIXED_CTR_CTRL MSRs to start/stop the counting of
respective counters. Counting is enabled if the AND'ed results is true;
counting is disabled when the result is false.

The end result is that all fixed counters are always disabled on Atom
processors because the assumption is just invalid.

Fix this by not initializing the ctrl-mask out of the global MSR,
but setting it to perf_counter_mask.

perf_counter tools: Handle overlapping MMAP events

Martin Schwidefsky reported "perf report" symbol resolution
problems on S390.

Since we only report MMAP, not MUNMAP, we have to deal with
overlapping maps.

We used to simply throw out the old map on the assumption whole
maps got unmapped. This obviously doesn't deal with partial
unmaps. However it appears some dynamic linkers do fancy
partial unmaps (s390), so do something more elaborate and
truncate the old maps, only removing them when they've been
fully covered.

This resolves (part of) the S390 symbol resolution problems.

10 years agoperf_counter tools: Fix vmlinux fallback when running on a different kernel
Ingo Molnar [Sun, 21 Jun 2009 11:58:51 +0000]
perf_counter tools: Fix vmlinux fallback when running on a different kernel

Lucas De Marchi reported that perf report and perf annotate
displays mismatching profile if a perf.data is analyzed on
an older kernel - even if the correct vmlinux is specified
via the -k option.

The reason is the fallback path in util/symbol.c:dso__load_kernel():

int dso__load_kernel(struct dso *self, const char *vmlinux,
                     symbol_filter_t filter, int verbose)
{
        int err = -1;

        if (vmlinux)
                err = dso__load_vmlinux(self, vmlinux, filter, verbose);

        if (err)
                err = dso__load_kallsyms(self, filter, verbose);

        return err;
}

dso__load_vmlinux() returns negative on error, but on success it
returns the number of symbols loaded - which confuses the function
to load the kallsyms.

This is normally harmless, as reporting is usually performed on the
same kernel that is analyzed - but if there's a mismatch then we
load the wrong kallsyms and create a non-sensical symbol tree.

The fix is to only fall back to kallsyms on errors.

10 years agox86, 64-bit: Clean up user address masking
Linus Torvalds [Sat, 20 Jun 2009 22:40:00 +0000]
x86, 64-bit: Clean up user address masking

The discussion about using "access_ok()" in get_user_pages_fast() (see
commit 7f8189068726492950bf1a2dcfd9b51314560abf: "x86: don't use
'access_ok()' as a range check in get_user_pages_fast()" for details and
end result), made us notice that x86-64 was really being very sloppy
about virtual address checking.

So be way more careful and straightforward about masking x86-64 virtual
addresses:

 - All the VIRTUAL_MASK* variants now cover half of the address
   space, it's not like we can use the full mask on a signed
   integer, and the larger mask just invites mistakes when
   applying it to either half of the 48-bit address space.

 - /proc/kcore's kc_offset_to_vaddr() becomes a lot more
   obvious when it transforms a file offset into a
   (kernel-half) virtual address.

 - Unify/simplify the 32-bit and 64-bit USER_DS definition to
   be based on TASK_SIZE_MAX.

This cleanup and more careful/obvious user virtual address checking also
uncovered a buglet in the x86-64 implementation of strnlen_user(): it
would do an "access_ok()" check on the whole potential area, even if the
string itself was much shorter, and thus return an error even for valid
strings. Our sloppy checking had hidden this.

So this fixes 'strnlen_user()' to do this properly, the same way we
already handled user strings in 'strncpy_from_user()'.  Namely by just
checking the first byte, and then relying on fault handling for the
rest.  That always works, since we impose a guard page that cannot be
mapped at the end of the user space address space (and even if we
didn't, we'd have the address space hole).

10 years agox86: don't use 'access_ok()' as a range check in get_user_pages_fast()
Linus Torvalds [Sat, 20 Jun 2009 16:52:27 +0000]
x86: don't use 'access_ok()' as a range check in get_user_pages_fast()

It's really not right to use 'access_ok()', since that is meant for the
normal "get_user()" and "copy_from/to_user()" accesses, which are done
through the TLB, rather than through the page tables.

Why? access_ok() does both too few, and too many checks.  Too many,
because it is meant for regular kernel accesses that will not honor the
'user' bit in the page tables, and because it honors the USER_DS vs
KERNEL_DS distinction that we shouldn't care about in GUP.  And too few,
because it doesn't do the 'canonical' check on the address on x86-64,
since the TLB will do that for us.

So instead of using a function that isn't meant for this, and does
something else and much more complicated, just do the real rules: we
don't want the range to overflow, and on x86-64, we want it to be a
canonical low address (on 32-bit, all addresses are canonical).

10 years agoide-cd: prevent null pointer deref via cdrom_newpc_intr
Rainer Weikusat [Thu, 18 Jun 2009 15:04:00 +0000]
ide-cd: prevent null pointer deref via cdrom_newpc_intr

With 2.6.30, the error handling code in cdrom_newpc_intr was changed
to deal with partial request failures by normally completing the 'good'
parts of a request and only 'error' the last (and presumably,
incompletely transferred) bio associated with a particular
request. In order to do this, ide_complete_rq is called over
ide_cd_error_cmd() to partially complete the rq. The block layer
does partial completion only for requests with bio's and if the
rq doesn't have one (eg 'GPCMD_READ_DISC_INFO') the request is
completed as a whole and the drive->hwif->rq pointer set to NULL
afterwards. When calling ide_complete_rq again to report
the error, this null pointer is derefenced, resulting in a kernel
crash.

This fixes http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=13399.

10 years agotracing/urgent: fix unbalanced ftrace_start_up
Frederic Weisbecker [Sat, 20 Jun 2009 03:45:14 +0000]
tracing/urgent: fix unbalanced ftrace_start_up

Perfcounter reports the following stats for a wide system
profiling:

 #
 # (2364 samples)
 #
 # Overhead  Symbol
 # ........  ......
 #
    15.40%  [k] mwait_idle_with_hints
     8.29%  [k] read_hpet
     5.75%  [k] ftrace_caller
     3.60%  [k] ftrace_call
     [...]

This snapshot has been taken while neither the function tracer nor
the function graph tracer was running.
With dynamic ftrace, such results show a wrong ftrace behaviour
because all calls to ftrace_caller or ftrace_graph_caller (the patched
calls to mcount) are supposed to be patched into nop if none of those
tracers are running.

The problem occurs after the first run of the function tracer. Once we
launch it a second time, the callsites will never be nopped back,
unless you set custom filters.
For example it happens during the self tests at boot time.
The function tracer selftest runs, and then the dynamic tracing is
tested too. After that, the callsites are left un-nopped.

This is because the reset callback of the function tracer tries to
unregister two ftrace callbacks in once: the common function tracer
and the function tracer with stack backtrace, regardless of which
one is currently in use.
It then creates an unbalance on ftrace_start_up value which is expected
to be zero when the last ftrace callback is unregistered. When it
reaches zero, the FTRACE_DISABLE_CALLS is set on the next ftrace
command, triggering the patching into nop. But since it becomes
unbalanced, ie becomes lower than zero, if the kernel functions
are patched again (as in every further function tracer runs), they
won't ever be nopped back.

Note that ftrace_call and ftrace_graph_call are still patched back
to ftrace_stub in the off case, but not the callers of ftrace_call
and ftrace_graph_caller. It means that the tracing is well deactivated
but we waste a useless call into every kernel function.

This patch just unregisters the right ftrace_ops for the function
tracer on its reset callback and ignores the other one which is
not registered, fixing the unbalance. The problem also happens
is .30

adds a test to moxa_open() that prevents opening unavailable ports.

10 years agoistallion: add missing __devexit marking

istallion: add missing __devexit marking

The remove member of the pci_driver stli_pcidriver uses __devexit_p(), so
the remove function itself should be marked with __devexit.  Even more so
considering the probe function is marked with __devinit.

10 years agoptrace: wait_task_zombie: do not account traced sub-threads

ptrace: wait_task_zombie: do not account traced sub-threads

The bug is ancient.

If we trace the sub-thread of our natural child and this sub-thread exits,
we update parent->signal->cxxx fields.  But we should not do this until
the whole thread-group exits, otherwise we account this thread (and all
other live threads) twice.

Add the task_detached() check.  No need to check thread_group_empty(),
wait_consider_task()->delay_group_leader() already did this.

10 years agortc: make rtc_update_irq callable with irqs enabled
Atsushi Nemoto [Thu, 18 Jun 2009 23:49:09 +0000]
rtc: make rtc_update_irq callable with irqs enabled

The rtc_update_irq() might be called with irqs enabled, if a interrupt
handler was registered without IRQF_DISABLED.  Use
spin_lock_irqsave/spin_unlock_irqrestore instead of spin_lock/spin_unlock.

Also update kerneldoc and drivers which do extra work to follow the
current interface spec, as suggestted by David Brownell.
