mm: Fix boot crash in mm_alloc()

Thomas Gleixner reports that we now have a boot crash triggered by
CONFIG_CPUMASK_OFFSTACK=y:

    BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at   (null)

which was introduced by commit de03c72cfce5 ("mm: convert
mm->cpu_vm_cpumask into cpumask_var_t"), and is due to wrong ordering of
mm_init() vs mm_init_cpumask

Thomas wrote a patch to just fix the ordering of initialization, but I
hate the new double allocation in the fork path, so I ended up instead
doing some more radical surgery to clean it all up.

Note that if there is no memory pressure, we can still allocate an

Remove the spinlock protecting the pages allocation.  The spinlock is only
taken on initialization or from single-threaded workqueue.  Therefore, the
spinlock is useless.

The spinlock is taken in kcopyd_get_pages and kcopyd_put_pages.

kcopyd_get_pages is only called from run_pages_job, which is only
called from process_jobs called from do_work.

kcopyd_put_pages is called from client_alloc_pages (which is initialization
function) or from run_complete_job. run_complete_job is only called from
process_jobs called from do_work.

Another spinlock, kc->job_lock is taken each time someone pushes or pops
some work for the worker thread.  Once we take kc->job_lock, we
guarantee that any written memory is visible to the other CPUs.

8 years agodm kcopyd: preallocate sub jobs to avoid deadlock
Mikulas Patocka [Sun, 29 May 2011 12:03:00 +0000]
dm kcopyd: preallocate sub jobs to avoid deadlock

There's a possible theoretical deadlock in dm-kcopyd because multiple
allocations from the same mempool are required to finish a request.
Avoid this by preallocating sub jobs.

There is a mempool of 512 entries. Each request requires up to 9
entries from the mempool. If we have at least 57 concurrent requests
running, the mempool may overflow and mempool allocations may start
blocking until another entry is freed to the mempool. Because the same
thread is used to free entries to the mempool and allocate entries from
the mempool, this may result in a deadlock.

This patch changes it so that one mempool entry contains all 9 "struct
kcopyd_job" required to fulfill the whole request. The allocation is
done only once in dm_kcopyd_copy and no further mempool allocations are
done during request processing.

If dm_kcopyd_copy is not run in the completion thread, this
implementation is deadlock-free.

MIN_JOBS needs reducing accordingly and we've chosen to reduce it
further to 8.

dm table: reject devices without request fns

This patch adds a check that a block device has a request function
defined before it is used.  Otherwise, misconfiguration can cause an oops.

Because we are allowing devices with zero size e.g. an offline multipath
device as in commit 2cd54d9bedb79a97f014e86c0da393416b264eb3
("dm: allow offline devices") there needs to be an additional check
to ensure devices are initialised.  Some block devices, like a loop
device without a backing file, exist but have no request function.

Reproducer is trivial: dm-mirror on unbound loop device
(no backing file on loop devices)

dmsetup create x --table "0 8 mirror core 2 8 sync 2 /dev/loop0 0 /dev/loop1 0"

and mirror resync will immediatelly cause OOps.

Quite a few functions that get called from the tlb gather code require that

The only drawback is that rcu_table_freelist_finish() doesn't get necessarily
called on the cpu(s) that filled the free lists. So we may see a delay, until

8 years agox86 idle: deprecate mwait_idle() and "idle=mwait" cmdline param
Len Brown [Fri, 1 Apr 2011 19:46:09 +0000]
x86 idle: deprecate mwait_idle() and "idle=mwait" cmdline param

mwait_idle() is a C1-only idle loop intended to be more efficient
than HLT on SMP hardware that supports it.

But mwait_idle() has been replaced by the more general
mwait_idle_with_hints(), which handles both C1 and deeper C-states.
ACPI uses only mwait_idle_with_hints(), and never uses mwait_idle().

Deprecate mwait_idle() and the "idle=mwait" cmdline param
to simplify the x86 idle code.

After this change, kernels configured with
(!CONFIG_ACPI=n && !CONFIG_INTEL_IDLE=n) when run on hardware
that support MWAIT will simply use HLT.  If MWAIT is desired
on those systems, cpuidle and the cpuidle drivers above
can be used.

Lin Ming [Mon, 16 May 2011 01:11:00 +0000]
ACPI: processor: fix processor_physically_present in UP kernel

Usually, there are multiple processors defined in ACPI table, for
example

    Scope (_PR)
    {
        Processor (CPU0, 0x00, 0x00000410, 0x06) {}
        Processor (CPU1, 0x01, 0x00000410, 0x06) {}
        Processor (CPU2, 0x02, 0x00000410, 0x06) {}
        Processor (CPU3, 0x03, 0x00000410, 0x06) {}
    }

processor_physically_present(...) will be called to check whether those
processors are physically present.

Currently we have below codes in processor_physically_present,

cpuid = acpi_get_cpuid(...);
if ((cpuid == -1) && (num_possible_cpus() > 1))
        return false;
return true;

In UP kernel, acpi_get_cpuid(...) always return -1 and
num_possible_cpus() always return 1, so
processor_physically_present(...) always returns true for all passed in
processor handles.

This is wrong for UP processor or SMP processor running UP kernel.

This patch removes the !SMP version of acpi_get_cpuid(), so both UP and
SMP kernel use the same acpi_get_cpuid function.

And for UP kernel, only processor 0 is valid.

8 years agoidle governor: Avoid lock acquisition to read pm_qos before entering idle
Tim Chen [Fri, 11 Feb 2011 20:49:04 +0000]
idle governor: Avoid lock acquisition to read pm_qos before entering idle

Thanks to the reviews and comments by Rafael, James, Mark and Andi.
Here's version 2 of the patch incorporating your comments and also some
update to my previous patch comments.

I noticed that before entering idle state, the menu idle governor will
look up the current pm_qos target value according to the list of qos
requests received.  This look up currently needs the acquisition of a
lock to access the list of qos requests to find the qos target value,
slowing down the entrance into idle state due to contention by multiple
cpus to access this list.  The contention is severe when there are a lot
of cpus waking and going into idle.  For example, for a simple workload
that has 32 pair of processes ping ponging messages to each other, where
64 cpu cores are active in test system, I see the following profile with
37.82% of cpu cycles spent in contention of pm_qos_lock:

-     37.82%          swapper  [kernel.kallsyms]          [k]
_raw_spin_lock_irqsave
   - _raw_spin_lock_irqsave
      - 95.65% pm_qos_request
           menu_select
           cpuidle_idle_call
         - cpu_idle
              99.98% start_secondary

A better approach will be to cache the updated pm_qos target value so
reading it does not require lock acquisition as in the patch below.
With this patch the contention for pm_qos_lock is removed and I saw a
2.2X increase in throughput for my message passing workload.

mm: fix page_lock_anon_vma leaving mutex locked

On one machine I've been getting hangs, a page fault's anon_vma_prepare()
waiting in anon_vma_lock(), other processes waiting for that page's lock.

This is a replay of last year's f18194275c39 "mm: fix hang on
anon_vma->root->lock".

The new page_lock_anon_vma() places too much faith in its refcount: when
it has acquired the mutex_trylock(), it's possible that a racing task in
anon_vma_alloc() has just reallocated the struct anon_vma, set refcount
to 1, and is about to reset its anon_vma->root.

Fix this by saving anon_vma->root, and relying on the usual page_mapped()
check instead of a refcount check: if page is still mapped, the anon_vma
is still ours; if page is not still mapped, we're no longer interested.

I've hit the "address >= vma->vm_end" check in do_page_add_anon_rmap()

pages: the call to page_add_anon_rmap() coming from remove_migration_pte().

That path holds anon_vma lock, but does not hold mmap_sem: it can
therefore race with a split_vma(), and in commit 5f70b962ccc2 "mmap:

protection when adjusting vma->vm_end.

Although shmem_writepage() does abandon when it sees incoming page index
is beyond eof, there was still a window in which shmem_truncate_range()
could come in between writepage's dropping lock and updating swap_map,
find the half-completed swap_map entry, and in trying to free it,
leave it in a state that swap_shmem_alloc() could not correct.

Arguably a bug in __swap_duplicate()'s and swap_entry_free()'s handling
of the different cases, but easiest to fix by moving swap_shmem_alloc()
under cover of the lock.

More interesting than the bug: it's been there since 2.6.33, why could
I not see it with earlier kernels?  The mmotm of two weeks ago seems to
have some magic for generating races, this is just one of three I found.

With yesterday's git I first saw this in mainline, bisected in search of
that magic, but the easy reproducibility evaporated.  Oh well, fix the bug.

The documentation is a little iffy as to whether these are actual MMRs,

logic (the SDH) had PID[4567].  So add it for RSI too.

Blackfin: debug-mmrs: fix typos with gptimers/mdma/ppi

This code was mostly developed against a BF54x, so some BF537-specific
issues were missed.

The PPI block starts at PPI_CONTROL, not PPI_STATUS (which is the reverse
of the EPPI block).

The MDMA block starts at MDMA_NEXT_DESC_PTR, not MDMA_CONFIG.  Seems the
sim does not catch misreads here so that'll need to get fixed.

The gptimer block is mostly 32bit regs, not 16bit.  Use the gptimer struct
to figure that out rather than hardcoding it locally.

Eric W. Biederman [Sat, 28 May 2011 02:28:27 +0000]
ns: Wire up the setns system call

32bit and 64bit on x86 are tested and working.  The rest I have looked
at closely and I can't find any problems.

setns is an easy system call to wire up.  It just takes two ints so I
don't expect any weird architecture porting problems.

While doing this I have noticed that we have some architectures that are
very slow to get new system calls.  cris seems to be the slowest where
the last system calls wired up were preadv and pwritev.  avr32 is weird
in that recvmmsg was wired up but never declared in unistd.h.  frv is
behind with perf_event_open being the last syscall wired up.  On h8300
the last system call wired up was epoll_wait.  On m32r the last system
call wired up was fallocate.  mn10300 has recvmmsg as the last system
call wired up.  The rest seem to at least have syncfs wired up which was
new in the 2.6.39.

v2: Most of the architecture support added by Daniel Lezcano <dlezcano@fr.ibm.com>
v3: ported to v2.6.36-rc4 by: Eric W. Biederman <ebiederm@xmission.com>

v5: ported to v2.6.39-rc6
v6: rebased onto parisc-next and net-next to avoid syscall  conflicts.
v7: ported to Linus's latest post 2.6.39 tree.

8 years agoCache xattr security drop check for write v2
Andi Kleen [Sat, 28 May 2011 15:25:51 +0000]
Cache xattr security drop check for write v2

Some recent benchmarking on btrfs showed that a major scaling bottleneck
on large systems on btrfs is currently the xattr lookup on every write.

Why xattr lookup on every write I hear you ask?

write wants to drop suid and security related xattrs that could set o
capabilities for executables.  To do that it currently looks up
security.capability on EVERY write (even for non executables) to decide
whether to drop it or not.

In btrfs this causes an additional tree walk, hitting some per file system
locks and quite bad scalability. In a simple read workload on a 8S
system I saw over 90% CPU time in spinlocks related to that.

Chris Mason tells me this is also a problem in ext4, where it hits
the global mbcache lock.

This patch adds a simple per inode to avoid this problem.  We only
do the lookup once per file and then if there is no xattr cache
the decision. All xattr changes clear the flag.

I also used the same flag to avoid the suid check, although
that one is pretty cheap.

A file system can also set this flag when it creates the inode,
if it has a cheap way to do so.  This is done for some common file systems
in followon patches.

With this patch a major part of the lock contention disappears
for btrfs. Some testing on smaller systems didn't show significant
performance changes, but at least it helps the larger systems
and is generally more efficient.

v2: Rename is_sgid. add file system helper.

It is not necessary to use waitqueues for the RCU kthreads because
we always know exactly which thread is to be awakened.  In addition,
wake_up() only issues an actual wakeup when there is a thread waiting on
the queue, which was why there was an extra explicit wake_up_process()
to get the RCU kthreads started.

Eliminating the waitqueues (and wake_up()) in favor of wake_up_process()
eliminates the need for the initial wake_up_process() and also shrinks
the data structure size a bit.  The wakeup logic is placed in a new
rcu_wait() macro.

8 years agorcu: Avoid acquiring rcu_node locks in timer functions

rcu: Avoid acquiring rcu_node locks in timer functions

This commit switches manipulations of the rcu_node ->wakemask field
to atomic operations, which allows rcu_cpu_kthread_timer() to avoid
acquiring the rcu_node lock.  This should avoid the following lockdep

8 years agosched: Fix ->min_vruntime calculation in dequeue_entity()
Peter Zijlstra [Tue, 17 May 2011 23:21:10 +0000]
sched: Fix ->min_vruntime calculation in dequeue_entity()

Dima Zavin <dima@android.com> reported:

"After pulling the thread off the run-queue during a cgroup change,
the cfs_rq.min_vruntime gets recalculated. The dequeued thread's vruntime
then gets normalized to this new value. This can then lead to the thread
getting an unfair boost in the new group if the vruntime of the next
task in the old run-queue was way further ahead."

8 years agosched: Fix ttwu() for __ARCH_WANT_INTERRUPTS_ON_CTXSW
Peter Zijlstra [Thu, 26 May 2011 12:21:33 +0000]
sched: Fix ttwu() for __ARCH_WANT_INTERRUPTS_ON_CTXSW

Marc reported that e4a52bcb9 (sched: Remove rq->lock from the first
half of ttwu()) broke his ARM-SMP machine. Now ARM is one of the few
__ARCH_WANT_INTERRUPTS_ON_CTXSW users, so that exception in the ttwu()
code was suspect.

Yong found that the interrupt could hit after context_switch() changes
current but before it clears p->on_cpu, if that interrupt were to
attempt a wake-up of p we would indeed find ourselves spinning in IRQ
context.

Fix this by reverting to the old behaviour for this situation and
perform a full remote wake-up.

mfd: Use mfd cell platform_data for db8500-prcmu cells platform bits

With the addition of a device platform mfd_cell pointer, MFD drivers
can go back to passing platform data back to their sub drivers.
This allows for an mfd_cell->mfd_data removal and thus keep the
sub drivers MFD agnostic. This is mostly needed for non MFD aware
sub drivers.

fs: block_page_mkwrite should wait for writeback to finish

For filesystems such as nilfs2 and xfs that use block_page_mkwrite, modify that
function to wait for pending writeback before allowing the page to become
writable.  This is needed to stabilize pages during writeback for those two
filesystems.
