10 years agoperf_counter: Fix/complete ftrace event records sampling
Frederic Weisbecker [Thu, 6 Aug 2009 23:25:54 +0000]
perf_counter: Fix/complete ftrace event records sampling

This patch implements the kernel side support for ftrace event
record sampling.

A new counter sampling attribute is added:

   PERF_SAMPLE_TP_RECORD

which requests ftrace events record sampling. In this case
if a PERF_TYPE_TRACEPOINT counter is active and a tracepoint
fires, we emit the tracepoint binary record to the
perfcounter event buffer, as a sample.

Result, after setting PERF_SAMPLE_TP_RECORD attribute from perf
record:

 perf record -f -F 1 -a -e workqueue:workqueue_execution
 perf report -D

 0x21e18 [0x48]: event: 9
 .
 . ... raw event: size 72 bytes
 .  0000:  09 00 00 00 01 00 48 00 d0 c7 00 81 ff ff ff ff  ......H........
 .  0010:  0a 00 00 00 0a 00 00 00 21 00 00 00 00 00 00 00  ........!......
 .  0020:  2b 00 01 02 0a 00 00 00 0a 00 00 00 65 76 65 6e  +...........eve
 .  0030:  74 73 2f 31 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 0a 00 00 00  ts/1...........
 .  0040:  e0 b1 31 81 ff ff ff ff                          .......
.
0x21e18 [0x48]: PERF_EVENT_SAMPLE (IP, 1): 10: 0xffffffff8100c7d0 period: 33

The raw ftrace binary record starts at offset 0020.

Translation:

 struct trace_entry {
type = 0x2b = 43;
flags = 1;
preempt_count = 2;
pid = 0xa = 10;
tgid = 0xa = 10;
 }

 thread_comm = "events/1"
 thread_pid  = 0xa = 10;
 func     = 0xffffffff8131b1e0 = flush_to_ldisc()

What will come next?

 - Userspace support ('perf trace'), 'flight data recorder' mode
   for perf trace, etc.

 - The unconditional copy from the profiling callback brings
   some costs however if someone wants no such sampling to
   occur, and needs to be fixed in the future. For that we need
   to have an instant access to the perf counter attribute.
   This is a matter of a flag to add in the struct ftrace_event.

 - Take care of the events recursivity! Don't ever try to record
   a lock event for example, it seems some locking is used in
   the profiling fast path and lead to a tracing recursivity.
   That will be fixed using raw spinlock or recursivity
   protection.

 - [...]

 - Profit! :-)

KVM: Avoid redelivery of edge interrupt before next edge

The check for an edge is broken in current ioapic code. ioapic->irr is
cleared on each edge interrupt by ioapic_service() and this makes
old_irr != ioapic->irr condition in kvm_ioapic_set_irq() to be always
true. The patch fixes the code to properly recognise edge.

Some HW emulation calls set_irq() without level change. If each such
call is propagated to an OS it may confuse a device driver. This is the
case with keyboard device emulation and Windows XP x64  installer on SMP VM.
Each keystroke produce two interrupts (down/up) one interrupt is
submitted to CPU0 and another to CPU1. This confuses Windows somehow
and it ignores keystrokes.

10 years agodrm: When adding probed modes, preserve duplicate mode types
Keith Packard [Mon, 20 Jul 2009 21:49:17 +0000]
drm: When adding probed modes, preserve duplicate mode types

The code which takes probed modes and adds them to a connector eliminates
duplicate modes by comparing them using drm_mode_equal. That function
doesn't consider the type bits, which means that any modes which differ only
in the type field will be lost.

One of the bits in the mode->type field is the DRM_MODE_TYPE_PREFERRED bit.
If the mode with that bit is lost, then higher level code will not know
which mode to select, causing a random mode to be used instead.

This patch simply merges the two mode type bits together; that seems
reasonable to me, but perhaps only a subset of the bits should be used? None
of these can be user defined as they all come from looking at just the
hardware.

USB: EHCI: fix two new bugs related to Clear-TT-Buffer

This patch (as1273) fixes two(!) bugs introduced by the new
Clear-TT-Buffer implementation in ehci-hcd.

It is now possible for an idle QH to have some URBs on its
queue -- this will happen if a Clear-TT-Buffer is pending for
the QH's endpoint.  Consequently we should not issue a warning
when someone tries to unlink an URB from an idle QH; instead
we should process the request immediately.

The refcounts for QHs could get messed up, because
submit_async() would increment the refcount when calling
qh_link_async() and qh_link_async() would then refuse to link
the QH into the schedule if a Clear-TT-Buffer was pending.
Instead we should increment the refcount only when the QH
actually is added to the schedule.  The current code tries to
be clever by leaving the refcount alone if an unlink is
immediately followed by a relink; the patch changes this to an
unconditional decrement and increment (although they occur in
the opposite order).

invalidate_inode_pages2_range may return -EBUSY occasionally
which results Oops. This patch fixes the issue by moving
invalidate_inode_pages2_range into a loop and keeping calling
it until the return value is not -EBUSY.

The EBUSY return is temporary, and can happen when the btrfs release page
function is unable to release a page because the EXTENT_LOCK

10 years agobzip2/lzma: remove nasty uncompressed size hack in pre-boot environment
Phillip Lougher [Thu, 6 Aug 2009 22:09:31 +0000]
bzip2/lzma: remove nasty uncompressed size hack in pre-boot environment

decompress_bunzip2 and decompress_unlzma have a nasty hack that subtracts
4 from the input length if being called in the pre-boot environment.

This is a nasty hack because it relies on the fact that flush = NULL only
when called from the pre-boot environment (i.e.
arch/x86/boot/compressed/misc.c).  initramfs.c/do_mounts_rd.c pass in a
flush buffer (flush != NULL).

This hack prevents the decompressors from being used with flush = NULL by
other callers unless knowledge of the hack is propagated to them.

This patch removes the hack by making decompress (called only from the
pre-boot environment) a wrapper function that subtracts 4 from the input
length before calling the decompressor.

10 years agoexecve: must clear current->clear_child_tid
Eric Dumazet [Thu, 6 Aug 2009 22:09:28 +0000]
execve: must clear current->clear_child_tid

While looking at Jens Rosenboom bug report
(http://lkml.org/lkml/2009/7/27/35) about strange sys_futex call done from
a dying "ps" program, we found following problem.

clone() syscall has special support for TID of created threads.  This
support includes two features.

One (CLONE_CHILD_SETTID) is to set an integer into user memory with the
TID value.

One (CLONE_CHILD_CLEARTID) is to clear this same integer once the created
thread dies.

The integer location is a user provided pointer, provided at clone()
time.

kernel keeps this pointer value into current->clear_child_tid.

At execve() time, we should make sure kernel doesnt keep this user
provided pointer, as full user memory is replaced by a new one.

As glibc fork() actually uses clone() syscall with CLONE_CHILD_SETTID and
CLONE_CHILD_CLEARTID set, chances are high that we might corrupt user
memory in forked processes.

Following sequence could happen:

1) bash (or any program) starts a new process, by a fork() call that
   glibc maps to a clone( ...  CLONE_CHILD_SETTID | CLONE_CHILD_CLEARTID
   ...) syscall

2) When new process starts, its current->clear_child_tid is set to a
   location that has a meaning only in bash (or initial program) context
   (&THREAD_SELF->tid)

3) This new process does the execve() syscall to start a new program.
   current->clear_child_tid is left unchanged (a non NULL value)

4) If this new program creates some threads, and initial thread exits,
   kernel will attempt to clear the integer pointed by
   current->clear_child_tid from mm_release() :

        if (tsk->clear_child_tid
            && !(tsk->flags & PF_SIGNALED)
            && atomic_read(&mm->mm_users) > 1) {
                u32 __user * tidptr = tsk->clear_child_tid;
                tsk->clear_child_tid = NULL;

                /*
                 * We don't check the error code - if userspace has
                 * not set up a proper pointer then tough luck.
                 */
<< here >>      put_user(0, tidptr);
                sys_futex(tidptr, FUTEX_WAKE, 1, NULL, NULL, 0);
        }

5) OR : if new program is not multi-threaded, but spied by /proc/pid
   users (ps command for example), mm_users > 1, and the exiting program
   could corrupt 4 bytes in a persistent memory area (shm or memory mapped
   file)

If current->clear_child_tid points to a writeable portion of memory of the
new program, kernel happily and silently corrupts 4 bytes of memory, with
unexpected effects.

Fix is straightforward and should not break any sane program.

10 years agofbcon: don't use vc_resize() on initialization
Johannes Weiner [Thu, 6 Aug 2009 22:07:36 +0000]
fbcon: don't use vc_resize() on initialization

Catalin and kmemleak spotted a leak of a VC screen buffer in
vc_allocate() due to the following chain of events:

vc_allocate()
  visual_init(init=1)
    vc->vc_sw->con_init(init=1)
              fbcon_init()
        vc_resize()
          vc->screen_buf = kmalloc()
  vc->screen_buf = kmalloc()

The common way for the VC drivers is to set the screen dimension
parameters manually in the init case and only call vc_resize() for
!init - which allocates a screen buffer according to the new
dimensions.

fbcon instead would do vc_resize() unconditionally and afterwards set
the dimensions manually (again) for !init - i.e. completely upside
down.  The vc_resize() allocated buffer would then get lost by
vc_allocate() allocating a fresh one.

Use vc_resize() only for actual resizing to close the leak.

Set the dimensions manually only in initialization mode to remove the
redundant setting in resize mode.

At first, init_task's mems_allowed is initialized as this.
 init_task->mems_allowed == node_state[N_POSSIBLE]

And cpuset's top_cpuset mask is initialized as this
 top_cpuset->mems_allowed = node_state[N_HIGH_MEMORY]

Before 2.6.29:
policy's mems_allowed is initialized as this.

  1. update tasks->mems_allowed by its cpuset->mems_allowed.
  2. policy->mems_allowed = nodes_and(tasks->mems_allowed, user's mask)

Updating task's mems_allowed in reference to top_cpuset's one.
cpuset's mems_allowed is aware of N_HIGH_MEMORY, always.

In 2.6.30: After commit 58568d2a8215cb6f55caf2332017d7bdff954e1c
("cpuset,mm: update tasks' mems_allowed in time"), policy's mems_allowed
is initialized as this.

  1. policy->mems_allowd = nodes_and(task->mems_allowed, user's mask)

Here, if task is in top_cpuset, task->mems_allowed is not updated from
init's one.  Assume user excutes command as #numactrl --interleave=all
,....

  policy->mems_allowd = nodes_and(N_POSSIBLE, ALL_SET_MASK)

Then, policy's mems_allowd can includes a possible node, which has no pgdat.

MPOL's INTERLEAVE just scans nodemask of task->mems_allowd and access this
directly.

  NODE_DATA(nid)->zonelist even if NODE_DATA(nid)==NULL

Then, what's we need is making policy->mems_allowed be aware of
N_HIGH_MEMORY.  This patch does that.  But to do so, extra nodemask will
be on statck.  Because I know cpumask has a new interface of
CPUMASK_ALLOC(), I added it to node.

This patch stands on old behavior.  But I feel this fix itself is just a
Band-Aid.  But to do fundametal fix, we have to take care of memory
hotplug and it takes time.  (task->mems_allowd should be N_HIGH_MEMORY, I
think.)

mpol_set_nodemask() should be aware of N_HIGH_MEMORY and policy's nodemask
should be includes only online nodes.

In old behavior, this is guaranteed by frequent reference to cpuset's
code.  Now, most of them are removed and mempolicy has to check it by
itself.

To do check, a few nodemask_t will be used for calculating nodemask.  But,
size of nodemask_t can be big and it's not good to allocate them on stack.

Now, cpumask_t has CPUMASK_ALLOC/FREE an easy code for get scratch area.
NODEMASK_ALLOC/FREE shoudl be there.

vfs: fix inode_init_always calling convention

Currently inode_init_always calls into ->destroy_inode if the additional
initialization fails.  That's not only counter-intuitive because
inode_init_always did not allocate the inode structure, but in case of

a radix-tree that has never been added.  This in turn might end up
deleting the inode for the same inum that has been instanciated by

Also in the case of re-initializing a reclaimable inode in XFS it would

Input: wistron_btns - support Prestigio Wifi RF kill button

The Prestigio 157, an old no-name clone laptop uses input keys very
similar to the Wistron 1557/MS2141 with the addition of BIOS-controlled
wireless radio frequency kill switch.

This patch adds support for the RF kill switch control and adds manual
identification of the model.

The Prestigio does not expose any recognisable identity via dmidecode
and so requires manual selection at module init using

force=1 keymap=prestigio

In the event of a lock steal or owner died,
rt_mutex_start_proxy_lock() will give the rt_mutex to the

to subsequent deadlocks when other tasks try to acquire the

Well we tracked it down and it is powerpc64 specific.

Seems that in drivers/hwmon/lm93.c there's a function called:

   LM93_IN_FROM_REG()

But PPC64 has function descriptors and the real function names (the ones
you see in objdump) start with a '.'. Thus this in objdump you have:

 Disassembly of section .text:

 0000000000000000 <.LM93_IN_FROM_REG>:
       0:       7c 08 02 a6     mflr    r0
       4:       fb 81 ff e0     std     r28,-32(r1)

The function name used is .LM93_IN_FROM_REG. But gcc considers symbols
that start with ".L" as a special symbol that is used inside the assembly
stage.

The nm passed into recordmcount uses the --synthetic option which shows
the ".L" symbols (my runs outside of the build did not include the
--synthetic option, so my older patch worked). We see the function as a
local.

Now to capture all the locations that use "mcount" we need to have a
reference to link into the object file a list of mcount callers. We need a
reference that will not disappear. We try to use a global function and if
that does not work, we use a local function as a reference. But to relink
the section back into the object, we need to make it global. In this case,
we run objcopy using --globalize-symbol and --localize-symbol to convert
the symbol into a global symbol, link the mcount list, then convert it
back to a local symbol.

This works great except for this case. .L* symbols can not be converted
into a global symbol, and the mcount section referencing it will remain
unresolved.

    debug_locks: set oops_in_progress if we will log messages.

    Otherwise lock debugging messages on runqueue locks can deadlock the

Will permanently set oops_in_progress on any lockdep failure.
When this triggers it will cause any read from the ring buffer to
permanently disable the ring buffer (not to mention no locking of
printk).

This patch removes the check. It keeps the print in NMI which makes
sense. This is probably OK, since the ring buffer should not cause
something to set oops_in_progress anyway.

10 years agoring-buffer: fix check of try_to_discard result
Steven Rostedt [Wed, 5 Aug 2009 16:02:48 +0000]
ring-buffer: fix check of try_to_discard result

The function ring_buffer_discard_commit inversed the code path
of the result of try_to_discard. It should skip incrementing the
entry counter if try_to_discard succeeded. But instead, it increments
the entry conder if it succeeded to discard, and does not increment
it if it fails.

The result of this bug is that filtering will make the stat counters
incorrect.
