10 years agoepoll keyed wakeups: add __wake_up_locked_key() and __wake_up_sync_key()
Davide Libenzi [Tue, 31 Mar 2009 22:24:20 +0000]
epoll keyed wakeups: add __wake_up_locked_key() and __wake_up_sync_key()

This patchset introduces wakeup hints for some of the most popular (from
epoll POV) devices, so that epoll code can avoid spurious wakeups on its
waiters.

The problem with epoll is that the callback-based wakeups do not, ATM,
carry any information about the events the wakeup is related to.  So the
only choice epoll has (not being able to call f_op->poll() from inside the
callback), is to add the file* to a ready-list and resolve the real events
later on, at epoll_wait() (or its own f_op->poll()) time.  This can cause
spurious wakeups, since the wake_up() itself might be for an event the
caller is not interested into.

The rate of these spurious wakeup can be pretty high in case of many
network sockets being monitored.

By allowing devices to report the events the wakeups refer to (at least
the two major classes - POLLIN/POLLOUT), we are able to spare useless
wakeups by proper handling inside the epoll's poll callback.

Epoll will have in any case to call f_op->poll() on the file* later on,
since the change to be done in order to have the full event set sent via
wakeup, is too invasive for the way our f_op->poll() system works (the
full event set is calculated inside the poll function - there are too many
of them to even start thinking the change - also poll/select would need
change too).

Epoll is changed in a way that both devices which send event hints, and
the ones that don't, are correctly handled.  The former will gain some
efficiency though.

As a general rule for devices, would be to add an event mask by using
key-aware wakeup macros, when making up poll wait queues.  I tested it
(together with the epoll's poll fix patch Andrew has in -mm) and wakeups
for the supported devices are correctly filtered.

Test program available here:

http://www.xmailserver.org/epoll_test.c

This patch:

Nothing revolutionary here.  Just using the available "key" that our
wakeup core already support.  The __wake_up_locked_key() was no brainer,
since both __wake_up_locked() and __wake_up_locked_key() are thin wrappers
around __wake_up_common().

The __wake_up_sync() function had a body, so the choice was between
borrowing the body for __wake_up_sync_key() and calling it from
__wake_up_sync(), or make an inline and calling it from both.  I chose the
former since in most archs it all resolves to "mov $0, REG; jmp ADDR".

10 years agoeventfd: improve support for semaphore-like behavior
Davide Libenzi [Tue, 31 Mar 2009 22:24:18 +0000]
eventfd: improve support for semaphore-like behavior

People started using eventfd in a semaphore-like way where before they
were using pipes.

That is, counter-based resource access.  Where a "wait()" returns
immediately by decrementing the counter by one, if counter is greater than
zero.  Otherwise will wait.  And where a "post(count)" will add count to
the counter releasing the appropriate amount of waiters.  If eventfd the
"post" (write) part is fine, while the "wait" (read) does not dequeue 1,
but the whole counter value.

The problem with eventfd is that a read() on the fd returns and wipes the
whole counter, making the use of it as semaphore a little bit more
cumbersome.  You can do a read() followed by a write() of COUNTER-1, but
IMO it's pretty easy and cheap to make this work w/out extra steps.  This
patch introduces a new eventfd flag that tells eventfd to only dequeue 1
from the counter, allowing simple read/write to make it behave like a
semaphore.  Simple test here:

http://www.xmailserver.org/eventfd-sem.c

To be back-compatible with earlier kernels, userspace applications should
probe for the availability of this feature via

#ifdef EFD_SEMAPHORE
fd = eventfd2 (CNT, EFD_SEMAPHORE);
if (fd == -1 && errno == EINVAL)
<fallback>
#else
<fallback>
#endif

ep->lock.  Also update the comment for mutex_lock() at the top of

epoll_ctl(EPOLL_CTL_MOD).

10 years agoepoll: remove unnecessary xchg
Tony Battersby [Tue, 31 Mar 2009 22:24:15 +0000]
epoll: remove unnecessary xchg

xchg in ep_unregister_pollwait() is unnecessary because it is protected by
either epmutex or ep->mtx (the same protection as ep_remove()).

If xchg was necessary, it would be insufficient to protect against
problems: if multiple concurrent calls to ep_unregister_pollwait() were
possible then a second caller that returns without doing anything because
nwait == 0 could return before the waitqueues are removed by the first
caller, which looks like it could lead to problematic races with
ep_poll_callback().

So remove xchg and add comments about the locking.

EFAULT will happen only if a buggy userspace program passes in a bad

10 years agoepoll: fix epoll's own poll
Davide Libenzi [Tue, 31 Mar 2009 22:24:10 +0000]
epoll: fix epoll's own poll

Fix a bug inside the epoll's f_op->poll() code, that returns POLLIN even
though there are no actual ready monitored fds.  The bug shows up if you
add an epoll fd inside another fd container (poll, select, epoll).

The problem is that callback-based wake ups used by epoll does not carry
(patches will follow, to fix this) any information about the events that
actually happened.  So the callback code, since it can't call the file*
->poll() inside the callback, chains the file* into a ready-list.

So, suppose you added an fd with EPOLLOUT only, and some data shows up on
the fd, the file* mapped by the fd will be added into the ready-list (via
wakeup callback).  During normal epoll_wait() use, this condition is
sorted out at the time we're actually able to call the file*'s
f_op->poll().

Inside the old epoll's f_op->poll() though, only a quick check
!list_empty(ready-list) was performed, and this could have led to
reporting POLLIN even though no ready fds would show up at a following
epoll_wait().  In order to correctly report the ready status for an epoll
fd, the ready-list must be checked to see if any really available fd+event
would be ready in a following epoll_wait().

Operation (calling f_op->poll() from inside f_op->poll()) that, like wake
ups, must be handled with care because of the fact that epoll fds can be
added to other epoll fds.

rather than every usec.

Because the loop is coded to take up to 10ms, it seemed prudent to
increase the interval between polling the device, to reduce the load on
the system and allow more other work to happen.

10 years agofilesystem freeze: allow SysRq emergency thaw to thaw frozen filesystems
Eric Sandeen [Tue, 31 Mar 2009 22:23:46 +0000]
filesystem freeze: allow SysRq emergency thaw to thaw frozen filesystems

Now that the filesystem freeze operation has been elevated to the VFS, and
is just an ioctl away, some sort of safety net for unintentionally frozen
root filesystems may be in order.

The timeout thaw originally proposed did not get merged, but perhaps
something like this would be useful in emergencies.

For example, freeze /path/to/mountpoint may freeze your root filesystem if
you forgot that you had that unmounted.

I chose 'j' as the last remaining character other than 'h' which is sort
of reserved for help (because help is generated on any unknown character).

I've tested this on a non-root fs with multiple (nested) freezers, as well
as on a system rendered unresponsive due to a frozen root fs.

10 years agoloop: add ioctl to resize a loop device
J. R. Okajima [Tue, 31 Mar 2009 22:23:43 +0000]
loop: add ioctl to resize a loop device

Add the ability to 'resize' the loop device on the fly.

One practical application is a loop file with XFS filesystem, already
mounted: You can easily enlarge the file (append some bytes) and then call
ioctl(fd, LOOP_SET_CAPACITY, new); The loop driver will learn about the
new size and you can use xfs_growfs later on, which will allow you to use
full capacity of the loop file without the need to unmount.

10 years agoshmem: writepage directly to swap
Hugh Dickins [Tue, 31 Mar 2009 22:23:33 +0000]
shmem: writepage directly to swap

Synopsis: if shmem_writepage calls swap_writepage directly, most shmem
swap loads benefit, and a catastrophic interaction between SLUB and some
flash storage is avoided.

shmem_writepage() has always been peculiar in making no attempt to write:
it has just transferred a shmem page from file cache to swap cache, then
let that page make its way around the LRU again before being written and
freed.

The idea was that people use tmpfs because they want those pages to stay
in RAM; so although we give it an overflow to swap, we should resist
writing too soon, giving those pages a second chance before they can be
reclaimed.

That was always questionable, and I've toyed with this patch for years;
but never had a clear justification to depart from the original design.

It became more questionable in 2.6.28, when the split LRU patches classed
shmem and tmpfs pages as SwapBacked rather than as file_cache: that in
itself gives them more resistance to reclaim than normal file pages.  I
prepared this patch for 2.6.29, but the merge window arrived before I'd
completed gathering statistics to justify sending it in.

Then while comparing SLQB against SLUB, running SLUB on a laptop I'd
habitually used with SLAB, I found SLUB to run my tmpfs kbuild swapping
tests five times slower than SLAB or SLQB - other machines slower too, but
nowhere near so bad.  Simpler "cp -a" swapping tests showed the same.

slub_max_order=0 brings sanity to all, but heavy swapping is too far from
normal to justify such a tuning.  The crucial factor on that laptop turns
out to be that I'm using an SD card for swap.  What happens is this:

By default, SLUB uses order-2 pages for shmem_inode_cache (and many other
fs inodes), so creating tmpfs files under memory pressure brings lumpy
reclaim into play.  One subpage of the order is chosen from the bottom of
the LRU as usual, then the other three picked out from their random
positions on the LRUs.

In a tmpfs load, many of these pages will be ones which already passed
through shmem_writepage, so already have swap allocated.  And though their
offsets on swap were probably allocated sequentially, now that the pages
are picked off at random, their swap offsets are scattered.

But the flash storage on the SD card is very sensitive to having its
writes merged: once swap is written at scattered offsets, performance
falls apart.  Rotating disk seeks increase too, but less disastrously.

So: stop giving shmem/tmpfs pages a second pass around the LRU, write them
out to swap as soon as their swap has been allocated.

It's surely possible to devise an artificial load which runs faster the
old way, one whose sizing is such that the tmpfs pages on their second
pass are the ones that are wanted again, and other pages not.

But I've not yet found such a load: on all machines, under the loads I've
tried, immediate swap_writepage speeds up shmem swapping: especially when
using the SLUB allocator (and more effectively than slub_max_order=0), but
also with the others; and it also reduces the variance between runs.  How
much faster varies widely: a factor of five is rare, 5% is common.

One load which might have suffered: imagine a swapping shmem load in a
limited mem_cgroup on a machine with plenty of memory.  Before 2.6.29 the
swapcache was not charged, and such a load would have run quickest with
the shmem swapcache never written to swap.  But now swapcache is charged,
so even this load benefits from shmem_writepage directly to swap.

Apologies for the #ifndef CONFIG_SWAP swap_writepage() stub in swap.h:
it's silly because that will never get called; but refactoring shmem.c
sensibly according to CONFIG_SWAP will be a separate task.

vmscan: fix it to take care of nodemask

try_to_free_pages() is used for the direct reclaim of up to
SWAP_CLUSTER_MAX pages when watermarks are low.  The caller to
alloc_pages_nodemask() can specify a nodemask of nodes that are allowed to
be used but this is not passed to try_to_free_pages().  This can lead to
unnecessary reclaim of pages that are unusable by the caller and int the
worst case lead to allocation failure as progress was not been make where
it is needed.

This patch passes the nodemask used for alloc_pages_nodemask() to
try_to_free_pages().

10 years agofs: fix page_mkwrite error cases in core code and btrfs
Nick Piggin [Tue, 31 Mar 2009 22:23:23 +0000]
fs: fix page_mkwrite error cases in core code and btrfs

page_mkwrite is called with neither the page lock nor the ptl held.  This
means a page can be concurrently truncated or invalidated out from
underneath it.  Callers are supposed to prevent truncate races themselves,
however previously the only thing they can do in case they hit one is to
raise a SIGBUS.  A sigbus is wrong for the case that the page has been
invalidated or truncated within i_size (eg.  hole punched).  Callers may
also have to perform memory allocations in this path, where again, SIGBUS
would be wrong.

The previous patch ("mm: page_mkwrite change prototype to match fault")
made it possible to properly specify errors.  Convert the generic buffer.c
code and btrfs to return sane error values (in the case of page removed
from pagecache, VM_FAULT_NOPAGE will cause the fault handler to exit
without doing anything, and the fault will be retried properly).

This fixes core code, and converts btrfs as a template/example.  All other
filesystems defining their own page_mkwrite should be fixed in a similar
manner.

Anton Blanchard [Tue, 31 Mar 2009 22:23:19 +0000]
mm: enable hashdist by default on 64bit NUMA

On PowerPC we allocate large boot time hashes on node 0.  This leads to an
imbalance in the free memory, for example on a 64GB box (4 x 16GB nodes):

Free memory:
Node 0: 97.03%
Node 1: 98.54%
Node 2: 98.42%
Node 3: 98.53%

If we switch to using vmalloc (like ia64 and x86-64) things are more
balanced:

Free memory:
Node 0: 97.53%
Node 1: 98.35%
Node 2: 98.33%
Node 3: 98.33%

For many HPC applications we are limited by the free available memory on
the smallest node, so even though the same amount of memory is used the
better balancing helps.

Since all 64bit NUMA capable architectures should have sufficient vmalloc
space, it makes sense to enable it via CONFIG_64BIT.

10 years agomm: don't free swap slots on page deactivation
Johannes Weiner [Tue, 31 Mar 2009 22:23:13 +0000]
mm: don't free swap slots on page deactivation

The pagevec_swap_free() at the end of shrink_active_list() was introduced
in 68a22394 "vmscan: free swap space on swap-in/activation" when
shrink_active_list() was still rotating referenced active pages.

In 7e9cd48 "vmscan: fix pagecache reclaim referenced bit check" this was
changed, the rotating removed but the pagevec_swap_free() after the
rotation loop was forgotten, applying now to the pagevec of the
deactivation loop instead.

Now swap space is freed for deactivated pages.  And only for those that
happen to be on the pagevec after the deactivation loop.

Complete 7e9cd48 and remove the rest of the swap freeing.

In shrink_active_list() after the deactivation loop, we strip buffer heads
from the potentially remaining pages in the pagevec.

Currently, this drops the zone's lru lock for stripping, only to reacquire

Fix hugetlb subsystem so that non root users belonging to

Currently non root users cannot even map one large page using SHM_HUGETLB
when they belong to the gid in /proc/sys/vm/hugetlb_shm_group.  This is

even if the user belongs to hugetlb_shm_group.

This patch
1. Fixes hugetlb subsystem so that users with CAP_IPC_LOCK and users
   belonging to hugetlb_shm_group don't need to be restricted with

Johannes Weiner [Tue, 31 Mar 2009 22:19:38 +0000]
vmscan: respect higher order in zone_reclaim()

During page allocation, there are two stages of direct reclaim that are
applied to each zone in the preferred list.  The first stage using
zone_reclaim() reclaims unmapped file backed pages and slab pages if over
defined limits as these are cheaper to reclaim.  The caller specifies the
order of the target allocation but the scan control is not being correctly
initialised.

The impact is that the correct number of pages are being reclaimed but
that lumpy reclaim is not being applied.  This increases the chances of a
full direct reclaim via try_to_free_pages() is required.

This patch initialises the order field of the scan control as requested by
the caller.

10 years agomm: add comment why mark_page_accessed() would be better than pte_mkyoung() in follow...
KOSAKI Motohiro [Tue, 31 Mar 2009 22:19:37 +0000]
mm: add comment why mark_page_accessed() would be better than pte_mkyoung() in follow_page()

At first look, mark_page_accessed() in follow_page() seems a bit strange.
It seems pte_mkyoung() would be better consistent with other kernel code.

However, it is intentional. The commit log said:

    ------------------------------------------------
    commit 9e45f61d69be9024a2e6bef3831fb04d90fac7a8
    Author: akpm <akpm>
    Date:   Fri Aug 15 07:24:59 2003 +0000

    [PATCH] Use mark_page_accessed() in follow_page()

    Touching a page via follow_page() counts as a reference so we should be
    either setting the referenced bit in the pte or running mark_page_accessed().

    Altering the pte is tricky because we haven't implemented an atomic
    pte_mkyoung().  And mark_page_accessed() is better anyway because it has more
    aging state: it can move the page onto the active list.

    BKrev: 3f3c8acbplT8FbwBVGtth7QmnqWkIw
    ------------------------------------------------

The atomic issue is still true nowadays. adding comment help to understand
code intention and it would be better.

10 years agovmscan: clip swap_cluster_max in shrink_all_memory()
Johannes Weiner [Tue, 31 Mar 2009 22:19:35 +0000]
vmscan: clip swap_cluster_max in shrink_all_memory()

shrink_inactive_list() scans in sc->swap_cluster_max chunks until it hits
the scan limit it was passed.

shrink_inactive_list()
{
do {
isolate_pages(swap_cluster_max)
shrink_page_list()
} while (nr_scanned < max_scan);
}

This assumes that swap_cluster_max is not bigger than the scan limit
because the latter is checked only after at least one iteration.

In shrink_all_memory() sc->swap_cluster_max is initialized to the overall
reclaim goal in the beginning but not decreased while reclaim is making
progress which leads to subsequent calls to shrink_inactive_list()
reclaiming way too much in the one iteration that is done unconditionally.

Set sc->swap_cluster_max always to the proper goal before doing
  shrink_all_zones()
    shrink_list()
      shrink_inactive_list().

While the current shrink_all_memory() happily reclaims more than actually
requested, this patch fixes it to never exceed the goal:

10 years agovmscan: rename sc.may_swap to may_unmap
Johannes Weiner [Tue, 31 Mar 2009 22:19:30 +0000]
vmscan: rename sc.may_swap to may_unmap

sc.may_swap does not only influence reclaiming of anon pages but pages
mapped into pagetables in general, which also includes mapped file pages.

In shrink_page_list():

if (!sc->may_swap && page_mapped(page))
goto keep_locked;

For anon pages, this makes sense as they are always mapped and reclaiming
them always requires swapping.

But mapped file pages are skipped here as well and it has nothing to do
with swapping.

The real effect of the knob is whether mapped pages are unmapped and
reclaimed or not.  Rename it to `may_unmap' to have its name match its
actual meaning more precisely.
