12 years agoslob: improved alignment handling
Nick Piggin [Mon, 16 Jul 2007 06:38:09 +0000]
slob: improved alignment handling

Remove the core slob allocator's minimum alignment restrictions, and instead
introduce the alignment restrictions at the slab API layer.  This lets us heed
the ARCH_KMALLOC/SLAB_MINALIGN directives, and also use __alignof__ (unsigned
long) for the default alignment (which should allow relaxed alignment
architectures to take better advantage of SLOB's small minimum alignment).

slob: remove bigblock tracking

Remove the bigblock lists in favour of using compound pages and going directly
to the page allocator.  Allocation size is stored in page->private, which also
makes ksize more accurate than it previously was.

12 years agoslob: rework freelist handling
Nick Piggin [Mon, 16 Jul 2007 06:38:07 +0000]
slob: rework freelist handling

Improve slob by turning the freelist into a list of pages using struct page
fields, then each page has a singly linked freelist of slob blocks via a
pointer in the struct page.

- The first benefit is that the slob freelists can be indexed by a smaller
  type (2 bytes, if the PAGE_SIZE is reasonable).

- Next is that freeing is much quicker because it does not have to traverse
  the entire freelist. Allocation can be slightly faster too, because we can
  skip almost-full freelist pages completely.

- Slob pages are then freed immediately when they become empty, rather than
  having a periodic timer try to free them. This gives efficiency and memory
  consumption improvement.

Then, we don't encode seperate size and next fields into each slob block,
rather we use the sign bit to distinguish between "size" or "next". Then
size 1 blocks contain a "next" offset, and others contain the "size" in
the first unit and "next" in the second unit.

- This allows minimum slob allocation alignment to go from 8 bytes to 2
  bytes on 32-bit and 12 bytes to 2 bytes on 64-bit. In practice, it is
  best to align them to word size, however some architectures (eg. cris)
  could gain space savings from turning off this extra alignment.

Then, make kmalloc use its own slob_block at the front of the allocation
in order to encode allocation size, rather than rely on not overwriting
slob's existing header block.

- This reduces kmalloc allocation overhead similarly to alignment reductions.

- Decouples kmalloc layer from the slob allocator.

Then, add a page flag specific to slob pages.

- This means kfree of a page aligned slob block doesn't have to traverse
  the bigblock list.

I would get benchmarks, but my test box's network doesn't come up with
slob before this patch. I think something is timing out. Anyway, things
are faster after the patch.

Code size goes up about 1K, however dynamic memory usage _should_ be
lower even on relatively small memory systems.

Future todo item is to restore the cyclic free list search, rather than
to always begin at the start.

12 years agoMM: alloc_large_system_hash() can free some memory for non power-of-two bucketsize

MM: alloc_large_system_hash() can free some memory for non power-of-two bucketsize

alloc_large_system_hash() is called at boot time to allocate space for
several large hash tables.

Lately, TCP hash table was changed and its bucketsize is not a power-of-two
anymore.

On most setups, alloc_large_system_hash() allocates one big page (order >
0) with __get_free_pages(GFP_ATOMIC, order).  This single high_order page
has a power-of-two size, bigger than the needed size.

We can free all pages that wont be used by the hash table.

On a 1GB i386 machine, this patch saves 128 KB of LOWMEM memory.

12 years agochange zonelist order: zonelist order selection logic
KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Mon, 16 Jul 2007 06:38:01 +0000]
change zonelist order: zonelist order selection logic

Make zonelist creation policy selectable from sysctl/boot option v6.

This patch makes NUMA's zonelist (of pgdat) order selectable.
Available order are Default(automatic)/ Node-based / Zone-based.

[Default Order]
The kernel selects Node-based or Zone-based order automatically.

[Node-based Order]
This policy treats the locality of memory as the most important parameter.
Zonelist order is created by each zone's locality. This means lower zones
(ex. ZONE_DMA) can be used before higher zone (ex. ZONE_NORMAL) exhausion.
IOW. ZONE_DMA will be in the middle of zonelist.
current 2.6.21 kernel uses this.

Pros.
 * A user can expect local memory as much as possible.
Cons.
 * lower zone will be exhansted before higher zone. This may cause OOM_KILL.

Maybe suitable if ZONE_DMA is relatively big and you never see OOM_KILL
because of ZONE_DMA exhaution and you need the best locality.

(example)
assume 2 node NUMA. node(0) has ZONE_DMA/ZONE_NORMAL, node(1) has ZONE_NORMAL.

*node(0)'s memory allocation order:

 node(0)'s NORMAL -> node(0)'s DMA -> node(1)'s NORMAL.

*node(1)'s memory allocation order:

 node(1)'s NORMAL -> node(0)'s NORMAL -> node(0)'s DMA.

[Zone-based order]
This policy treats the zone type as the most important parameter.
Zonelist order is created by zone-type order. This means lower zone
never be used bofere higher zone exhaustion.
IOW. ZONE_DMA will be always at the tail of zonelist.

Pros.
 * OOM_KILL(bacause of lower zone) occurs only if the whole zones are exhausted.
Cons.
 * memory locality may not be best.

(example)
assume 2 node NUMA. node(0) has ZONE_DMA/ZONE_NORMAL, node(1) has ZONE_NORMAL.

*node(0)'s memory allocation order:

 node(0)'s NORMAL -> node(1)'s NORMAL -> node(0)'s DMA.

*node(1)'s memory allocation order:

 node(1)'s NORMAL -> node(0)'s NORMAL -> node(0)'s DMA.

bootoption "numa_zonelist_order=" and proc/sysctl is supporetd.

command:
%echo N > /proc/sys/vm/numa_zonelist_order

Will rebuild zonelist in Node-based order.

command:
%echo Z > /proc/sys/vm/numa_zonelist_order

Will rebuild zonelist in Zone-based order.

Thanks to Lee Schermerhorn, he gives me much help and codes.

include/asm-x86_64/serial.h.  the serial8250_ports need to be probed late in
serial initializing stage.  the console_init=>serial8250_console_init=>
register_console=>serial8250_console_setup will return -ENDEV, and console
ttyS0 can not be enabled at that time.  need to wait till uart_add_one_port in
drivers/serial/serial_core.c to call register_console to get console ttyS0.
that is too late.

Make early_uart to use early_param, so uart console can be used earlier.  Make
it to be bootconsole with CON_BOOT flag, so can use console handover feature.
and it will switch to corresponding normal serial console automatically.

new command line will be:
console=uart8250,io,0x3f8,9600n8
console=uart8250,mmio,0xff5e0000,115200n8
or
earlycon=uart8250,io,0x3f8,9600n8
earlycon=uart8250,mmio,0xff5e0000,115200n8

it will print in very early stage:
Early serial console at I/O port 0x3f8 (options '9600n8')
console [uart0] enabled
later for console it will print:

serial: assert DTR for serial console devices

Some RS-232 devices require DTR to be asserted before they can be used.  DTR
is normally asserted in uart_startup() when the port is opened.  But we don't
actually open serial console ports, so assert DTR when the port is added.

BTW:
earlyprintk and early_uart are hard coded to set DTR/RTS.

rmk says

  The only issue I can think of is the possibility for an attached modem to
  auto-answer or maybe even auto-dial before the system is ready for it to do
  so.  Might have an undesirable cost implication for some running with such a
  setup.

  Apart from that, I can't think of any other side effect of this specific
  patch.

makes a difference for sparse idrs, but more importantly, it's a nicer way
to iterate through the elements.

The drm subsystem is moving to idr for tracking contexts and drawables, and

make i2c-acorn tristate

current Kconfig allows I2C=m, I2C_ACORN=y, which doesn't work at
all; alternatives are dependency on I2C=y and making I2C_ACORN
itself a tristate.  The latter is the right thing to do...

12 years agopda_power: clean up irq, timer
Jeff Garzik [Sat, 14 Jul 2007 23:12:04 +0000]
pda_power: clean up irq, timer

Clean up pda_power interrupt handling:

Prior to this patch, the driver would pass information it needed
to the interrupt handler dev_id pointer, and then prompt forget it
ever did so, recreating that same information after a couple passes
through the timer-based state machine.

This patch removes the redundant checks by passing the
pda_power_supply[] pointer through the state machine.  The current
code passed 'irq' through the state machine, as an index to recreate
the pointer, when we could more simply pass around the pointer itself.

This patch makes it easier to remove the 'irq' argument in the future,
in addition to cleaning up the driver today.

Currently if the link is brought down via ip link or ifconfig down,
the inet6addr_chain notifiers are not called even though all
the addresses are removed from the interface.  This caused SCTP

Patrick McHardy [Sun, 15 Jul 2007 07:02:31 +0000]
[NET_SCHED]: act_api: qdisc internal reclassify support

The behaviour of NET_CLS_POLICE for TC_POLICE_RECLASSIFY was to return
it to the qdisc, which could handle it internally or ignore it. With
NET_CLS_ACT however, tc_classify starts over at the first classifier
and never returns it to the qdisc. This makes it impossible to support
qdisc-internal reclassification, which in turn makes it impossible to
remove the old NET_CLS_POLICE code without breaking compatibility since
we have two qdiscs (CBQ and ATM) that support this.

This patch adds a tc_classify_compat function that handles
reclassification the old way and changes CBQ and ATM to use it.

This again is of course not fully backwards compatible with the previous
NET_CLS_ACT behaviour. Unfortunately there is no way to fully maintain
compatibility *and* support qdisc internal reclassification with
NET_CLS_ACT, but this seems like the better choice over keeping the two
incompatible options around forever.

12 years ago[IPV6]: MSG_ERRQUEUE messages do not pass to connected raw sockets
Dmitry Butskoy [Sun, 15 Jul 2007 06:53:08 +0000]
[IPV6]: MSG_ERRQUEUE messages do not pass to connected raw sockets

From: Dmitry Butskoy <dmitry@butskoy.name>

Taken from http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=8747

Problem Description:

It is related to the possibility to obtain MSG_ERRQUEUE messages from the udp
and raw sockets, both connected and unconnected.

There is a little typo in net/ipv6/icmp.c code, which prevents such messages
to be delivered to the errqueue of the correspond raw socket, when the socket
is CONNECTED.  The typo is due to swap of local/remote addresses.

Consider __raw_v6_lookup() function from net/ipv6/raw.c. When a raw socket is
looked up usual way, it is something like:

sk = __raw_v6_lookup(sk, nexthdr, daddr, saddr, IP6CB(skb)->iif);

where "daddr" is a destination address of the incoming packet (IOW our local
address), "saddr" is a source address of the incoming packet (the remote end).

But when the raw socket is looked up for some icmp error report, in
net/ipv6/icmp.c:icmpv6_notify() , daddr/saddr are obtained from the echoed
fragment of the "bad" packet, i.e.  "daddr" is the original destination
address of that packet, "saddr" is our local address.  Hence, for
icmpv6_notify() must use "saddr, daddr" in its arguments, not "daddr, saddr"
...

Steps to reproduce:

Create some raw socket, connect it to an address, and cause some error
situation: f.e. set ttl=1 where the remote address is more than 1 hop to reach.
Set IPV6_RECVERR .
Then send something and wait for the error (f.e. poll() with POLLERR|POLLIN).
You should receive "time exceeded" icmp message (because of "ttl=1"), but the
socket do not receive it.

If you do not connect your raw socket, you will receive MSG_ERRQUEUE
successfully.  (The reason is that for unconnected socket there are no actual
checks for local/remote addresses).

> CPU#0
>
> qdisc_watchdog() fires and gets dev->queue_lock
> qdisc_run()...qdisc_restart()...
> -> releases dev->queue_lock and enters dev_hard_start_xmit()

> -> grabs dev->queue_lock ...
>
> qdisc_reset()...{cbq,hfsc,htb,netem,tbf}_reset()...qdisc_watchdog_cancel()...
> -> hrtimer_cancel() - waiting for the qdisc_watchdog() to exit, while still
>         holding dev->queue_lock
>
> CPU#0
>
> dev_hard_start_xmit() returns ...
> -> wants to get dev->queue_lock(!)
>
> DEADLOCK!

The entire optimization is a bit questionable IMO, it moves potentially
large parts of NET_TX_SOFTIRQ work to TIMER_SOFTIRQ/HRTIMER_SOFTIRQ,
which kind of defeats the separation of them.

Yasuyuki Kozakai [Sun, 15 Jul 2007 03:45:41 +0000]
[NETFILTER]: nf_conntrack: Don't track locally generated special ICMP error

The conntrack assigned to locally generated ICMP error is usually the one
assigned to the original packet which has caused the error. But if
the original packet is handled as invalid by nf_conntrack, no conntrack
is assigned to the original packet. Then nf_ct_attach() cannot assign
any conntrack to the ICMP error packet. In that case the current
nf_conntrack_icmp assigns appropriate conntrack to it. But the current
code mistakes the direction of the packet. As a result, NAT code mistakes
the address to be mangled.

To fix the bug, this changes nf_conntrack_icmp not to assign conntrack
to such ICMP error. Actually no address is necessary to be mangled
in this case.

Patrick McHardy [Sun, 15 Jul 2007 01:51:31 +0000]
[NET]: Add net_device change_rx_mode callback

Currently the set_multicast_list (and set_rx_mode) callbacks are
responsible for configuring the device according to the IFF_PROMISC,
IFF_MULTICAST and IFF_ALLMULTI flags and the mc_list (and uc_list in
case of set_rx_mode).

These callbacks can be invoked from BH context without the rtnl_mutex
by dev_mc_add/dev_mc_delete, which makes reading the device flags and
promiscous/allmulti count racy. For real hardware drivers that just
commit all changes to the hardware this is not a real problem since
the stack guarantees to call them for every change, so at least the
final call will not race and commit the correct configuration to the
hardware.

For software devices that want to synchronize promiscous and multicast
state to an underlying device however this can cause corruption of the
underlying device's flags or promisc/allmulti counts.

When the software device is concurrently put in promiscous or allmulti
mode while set_multicast_list is invoked from bottem half context, the
device might synchronize the change to the underlying device without
holding the rtnl_mutex, which races with concurrent changes to the
underlying device.

Add a dev->change_rx_flags hook that is invoked when any of the flags
that affect rx filtering change (under the rtnl_mutex), which allows
drivers to perform synchronization immediately and only synchronize
the address lists in set_multicast_list/set_rx_mode.

12 years ago[SCSI] don't build scsi_dma_{map,unmap} for !HAS_DMA
Cornelia Huck [Mon, 9 Jul 2007 18:59:59 +0000]
[SCSI] don't build scsi_dma_{map,unmap} for !HAS_DMA

With

 dma-mapping-prevent-dma-dependent-code-from-linking-on.patch

scsi fails to build on !HAS_DMA architectures:

drivers/built-in.o(.text+0x20af6): In function `scsi_dma_map':
: undefined reference to `dma_map_sg'
drivers/built-in.o(.text+0x20b5c): In function `scsi_dma_unmap':
: undefined reference to `dma_unmap_sg'

I split those functions out into a new file. Builds on s390 and i386.

Move scsi_dma_{map,unmap} into scsi_lib_dma.c which is only build if
HAS_DMA is set.

[SCSI] Clean up scsi_add_lun a bit

This patch tidies up scsi_add_lun a bit.  I rewrote the kerneldoc to match
the actual parameters, moved the check for RBC and MMC REPORT_LUN devices
away from the switch(), changed the setup of sdev->type to account for
BLIST_ISROM, moved the check for BLIST_NO_ULD_ATTACH further down in
the function, removed a bogus comment and fixed some whitespace issues.
