12 years agotime: SMP friendly alignment of struct clocksource
Eric Dumazet [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:27:57 +0000]
time: SMP friendly alignment of struct clocksource

struct clocksource is a critical data structure.

Most of its fields are read only, some of them are heavily modified at each
timer interrupt.

It makes sense to separate those fields and make sure they all share one
cache line, or at least the minimum for machines with small cache lines.

12 years agoIRQ: check for PERCPU flag only when adding first irqaction

IRQ: check for PERCPU flag only when adding first irqaction

An irqaction structure won't be added to an IRQ descriptor irqaction list if
it doesn't agree with other irqactions on the IRQF_PERCPU flag.  Don't check
for this flag to change IRQ descriptor `status' for every irqaction added to
the list, Doing the check only for the first irqaction added is enough.

12 years agoAdd support for deferrable timers
Venki Pallipadi [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:27:44 +0000]
Add support for deferrable timers

Introduce a new flag for timers - deferrable: Timers that work normally
when system is busy.  But, will not cause CPU to come out of idle (just to
service this timer), when CPU is idle.  Instead, this timer will be
serviced when CPU eventually wakes up with a subsequent non-deferrable
timer.

The main advantage of this is to avoid unnecessary timer interrupts when
CPU is idle.  If the routine currently called by a timer can wait until
next event without any issues, this new timer can be used to setup timer
event for that routine.  This, with dynticks, allows CPUs to be lazy,
allowing them to stay in idle for extended period of time by reducing
unnecesary wakeup and thereby reducing the power consumption.

This patch:

Builds this new timer on top of existing timer infrastructure.  It uses
last bit in 'base' pointer of timer_list structure to store this deferrable
timer flag.  __next_timer_interrupt() function skips over these deferrable
timers when CPU looks for next timer event for which it has to wake up.

This is exported by a new interface init_timer_deferrable() that can be
called in place of regular init_timer().

12 years agoparport->dev driver model support
David Brownell [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:27:35 +0000]
parport->dev driver model support

Currently a parport_driver can't get a handle on the device node for the
underlying parport (PNPACPI, PCI, etc).  That prevents correct placement of
sysfs child nodes, which can affect things like power management.

This patch adds a field to "struct parport" pointing to that device node, and
updates non-legacy port drivers to initialize that device pointer.  That field
replaces the analagous PCI-only support in parport_pc.

Johannes Berg [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:27:20 +0000]
fix sscanf %n match at end of input string

I was playing with some code that sometimes got a string where a %n
match should have been done where the input string ended, for example
like this:

  sscanf("abc123", "abc%d%n", &a, &n);  /* doesn't work */
  sscanf("abc123a", "abc%d%n", &a, &n); /* works */

However, the scanf function in the kernel doesn't convert the %n in that
case because it has already matched the complete input after %d and just
completely stops matching then. This patch fixes that.

12 years agotty: introduce no_tty and use it in selinux
Eric W. Biederman [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:26:56 +0000]
tty: introduce no_tty and use it in selinux

While researching the tty layer pid leaks I found a weird case in selinux when
we drop a controlling tty because of inadequate permissions we don't do the
normal hangup processing.  Which is a problem if it happens the session leader
has exec'd something that can no longer access the tty.

We already have code in the kernel to handle this case in the form of the
TIOCNOTTY ioctl.  So this patch factors out a helper function that is the
essence of that ioctl and calls it from the selinux code.

This removes the inconsistency in handling dropping of a controlling tty and
who knows it might even make some part of user space happy because it received
a SIGHUP it was expecting.

In addition since this removes the last user of proc_set_tty outside of
tty_io.c proc_set_tty is made static and removed from tty.h

12 years agoFixes and cleanups for earlyprintk aka boot console
Gerd Hoffmann [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:26:49 +0000]
Fixes and cleanups for earlyprintk aka boot console

The console subsystem already has an idea of a boot console, using the
CON_BOOT flag.  The implementation has some flaws though.  The major
problem is that presence of a boot console makes register_console() ignore
any other console devices (unless explicitly specified on the kernel
command line).

This patch fixes the console selection code to *not* consider a boot
console a full-featured one, so the first non-boot console registering will
become the default console instead.  This way the unregister call for the
boot console in the register_console() function actually triggers and the
handover from the boot console to the real console device works smoothly.
Added a printk for the handover, so you know which console device the
output goes to when the boot console stops printing messages.

The disable_early_printk() call is obsolete with that patch, explicitly
disabling the early console isn't needed any more as it works automagically
with that patch.

I've walked through the tree, dropped all disable_early_printk() instances
found below arch/ and tagged the consoles with CON_BOOT if needed.  The
code is tested on x86, sh (thanks to Paul) and mips (thanks to Ralf).

Changes to last version: Rediffed against -rc3, adapted to mips cleanups by
Ralf, fixed "udbg-immortal" cmd line arg on powerpc.

Subject: jsm driver fix for linuxpps support

The jsm driver doesn't currently use the uart_handle_*_change helper
functions, which are the obvious place for things like linuxpps to tie
into (which it now does of course), and as a result the jsm driver can
not be used with linuxpps and anything else that ties into the
serial_core helper functions.  This patch adds calls to these helper
functions whenever the value they manage changes.  That actual storage
of the state is not modified since the jsm driver caches the current
settings (The 8250 driver reads them everytime a user asks for the
state), and only updates them whenever they change.

VFS: delay the dentry name generation on sockets and pipes

1) Introduces a new method in 'struct dentry_operations'.  This method
   called d_dname() might be called from d_path() to build a pathname for
   special filesystems.  It is called without locks.

   Future patches (if we succeed in having one common dentry for all
   pipes/sockets) may need to change prototype of this method, but we now
   use : char *d_dname(struct dentry *dentry, char *buffer, int buflen);

2) Adds a dynamic_dname() helper function that eases d_dname() implementations

3) Defines d_dname method for sockets : No more sprintf() at socket
   creation.  This is delayed up to the moment someone does an access to
   /proc/pid/fd/...

4) Defines d_dname method for pipes : No more sprintf() at pipe
   creation.  This is delayed up to the moment someone does an access to
   /proc/pid/fd/...

12 years agoprocfs: reorder struct pid_dentry to save space on 64bit archs, and constify them
Eric Dumazet [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:26:15 +0000]
procfs: reorder struct pid_dentry to save space on 64bit archs, and constify them

Change the order of fields of struct pid_entry (file fs/proc/base.c) in order
to avoid a hole on 64bit archs.  (8 bytes saved per object)

Also change all pid_entry arrays to be const qualified, to make clear they
must not be modified.

Before (on x86_64) :

# size fs/proc/base.o
   text    data     bss     dec     hex filename
  15549    2192       0   17741    454d fs/proc/base.o

After :

# size fs/proc/base.o
   text    data     bss     dec     hex filename
  17229     176       0   17405    43fd fs/proc/base.o

Thats 336 bytes saved on kernel size on x86_64

12 years agoproc: maps protection
Kees Cook [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:26:04 +0000]
proc: maps protection

The /proc/pid/ "maps", "smaps", and "numa_maps" files contain sensitive
information about the memory location and usage of processes.  Issues:

- maps should not be world-readable, especially if programs expect any
  kind of ASLR protection from local attackers.
- maps cannot just be 0400 because "-D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 -O2" makes glibc
  check the maps when %n is in a *printf call, and a setuid(getuid())
  process wouldn't be able to read its own maps file.  (For reference
  see http://lkml.org/lkml/2006/1/22/150)
- a system-wide toggle is needed to allow prior behavior in the case of
  non-root applications that depend on access to the maps contents.

This change implements a check using "ptrace_may_attach" before allowing
access to read the maps contents.  To control this protection, the new knob
/proc/sys/kernel/maps_protect has been added, with corresponding updates to
the procfs documentation.

12 years agoadd filesystem subtype support
Miklos Szeredi [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:25:43 +0000]
add filesystem subtype support

There's a slight problem with filesystem type representation in fuse
based filesystems.

From the kernel's view, there are just two filesystem types: fuse and
fuseblk.  From the user's view there are lots of different filesystem
types.  The user is not even much concerned if the filesystem is fuse based
or not.  So there's a conflict of interest in how this should be
represented in fstab, mtab and /proc/mounts.

The current scheme is to encode the real filesystem type in the mount
source.  So an sshfs mount looks like this:

  sshfs#user@server:/   /mnt/server    fuse   rw,nosuid,nodev,...

This url-ish syntax works OK for sshfs and similar filesystems.  However
for block device based filesystems (ntfs-3g, zfs) it doesn't work, since
the kernel expects the mount source to be a real device name.

A possibly better scheme would be to encode the real type in the type
field as "type.subtype".  So fuse mounts would look like this:

  /dev/hda1       /mnt/windows   fuseblk.ntfs-3g   rw,...
  user@server:/   /mnt/server    fuse.sshfs        rw,nosuid,nodev,...

This patch adds the necessary code to the kernel so that this can be
correctly displayed in /proc/mounts.

12 years agoepoll: optimizations and cleanups
Davide Libenzi [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:25:41 +0000]
epoll: optimizations and cleanups

Epoll is doing multiple passes over the ready set at the moment, because of
the constraints over the f_op->poll() call.  Looking at the code again, I
noticed that we already hold the epoll semaphore in read, and this
(together with other locking conditions that hold while doing an
epoll_wait()) can lead to a smarter way [1] to "ship" events to userspace
(in a single pass).

This is a stress application that can be used to test the new code.  It
spwans multiple thread and call epoll_wait() and epoll_ctl() from many
threads.  Stress tested on my dual Opteron 254 w/out any problems.

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

This is not a benchmark, just something that tries to stress and exploit
possible problems with the new code.
Also, I made a stupid micro-benchmark:

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

[1] Considering that epoll must be thread-safe, there are five ways we can
    be hit during an epoll_wait() transfer loop (ep_send_events()):

    1) The epoll fd going away and calling ep_free
       This just can't happen, since we did an fget() in sys_epoll_wait

    2) An epoll_ctl(EPOLL_CTL_DEL)
       This can't happen because epoll_ctl() gets ep->sem in write, and
       we're holding it in read during ep_send_events()

    3) An fd stored inside the epoll fd going away
       This can't happen because in eventpoll_release_file() we get
       ep->sem in write, and we're holding it in read during
       ep_send_events()

    4) Another epoll_wait() happening on another thread
       They both can be inside ep_send_events() at the same time, we get
       (splice) the ready-list under the spinlock, so each one will get
       its own ready list. Note that an fd cannot be at the same time
       inside more than one ready list, because ep_poll_callback() will
       not re-queue it if it sees it already linked:

       if (ep_is_linked(&epi->rdllink))
                goto is_linked;

       Another case that can happen, is two concurrent epoll_wait(),
       coming in with a userspace event buffer of size, say, ten.
       Suppose there are 50 event ready in the list. The first
       epoll_wait() will "steal" the whole list, while the second, seeing
       no events, will go to sleep. But at the end of ep_send_events() in
       the first epoll_wait(), we will re-inject surplus ready fds, and we
       will trigger the proper wake_up to the second epoll_wait().

    5) ep_poll_callback() hitting us asyncronously
       This is the tricky part. As I said above, the ep_is_linked() test
       done inside ep_poll_callback(), will guarantee us that until the
       item will result linked to a list, ep_poll_callback() will not try
       to re-queue it again (read, write data on any of its members). When
       we do a list_del() in ep_send_events(), the item will still satisfy
       the ep_is_linked() test (whatever data is written in prev/next,
       it'll never be its own pointer), so ep_poll_callback() will still
       leave us alone. It's only after the eventual smp_mb()+INIT_LIST_HEAD(&epi->rdllink)
       that it'll become visible to ep_poll_callback(), but at the point
       we're already past it.

Eric Dumazet [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:25:32 +0000]
Optimize timespec_trunc()

The first thing done by timespec_trunc() is :

  if (gran <= jiffies_to_usecs(1) * 1000)

This should really be a test against a constant known at compile time.

Alas, it isnt. jiffies_to_usec() was unilined so C compiler emits a function
call and a multiply to compute : a CONSTANT.

mov    $0x1,%edi
mov    %rbx,0xffffffffffffffe8(%rbp)
mov    %r12,0xfffffffffffffff0(%rbp)
mov    %edx,%ebx
mov    %rsi,0xffffffffffffffc8(%rbp)
mov    %rsi,%r12
callq  ffffffff80232010 <jiffies_to_usecs>
imul   $0x3e8,%eax,%eax
cmp    %ebx,%eax

This patch reorders kernel/time.c a bit so that jiffies_to_usecs() is defined
before timespec_trunc() so that compiler now generates :

cmp    $0x3d0900,%edx  (HZ=250 on my machine)

This gives a better code (timespec_trunc() becoming a leaf function), and
shorter kernel size as well.

12 years agoexec: fix remove_arg_zero
Nick Piggin [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:25:16 +0000]
exec: fix remove_arg_zero

Petr Tesarik discovered a problem in remove_arg_zero(). He writes:

 When a script is loaded, load_script() replaces argv[0] with the
 name of the interpreter and the filename passed to the exec syscall.
 However, there is no guarantee that the length of the interpreter
 name plus the length of the filename is greater than the length of
 the original argv[0]. If the difference happens to cross a page boundary,
 setup_arg_pages() will call put_dirty_page() [aka install_arg_page()]
 with an address outside the VMA.

 Therefore, remove_arg_zero() must free all pages which would be unused
 after the argument is removed.

So, rewrite the remove_arg_zero function without gotos, with a few comments,
and with the commonly used explicit index/offset. This fixes the problem
and makes it easier to understand as well.

12 years agoUse stop_machine_run in the Intel RNG driver
Prarit Bhargava [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:25:08 +0000]
Use stop_machine_run in the Intel RNG driver

Replace call_smp_function with stop_machine_run in the Intel RNG driver.

CPU A has done read_lock(&lock)
CPU B has done write_lock_irq(&lock) and is waiting for A to release the lock.

A third CPU calls call_smp_function and issues the IPI.  CPU A takes CPU
C's IPI.  CPU B is waiting with interrupts disabled and does not see the
IPI.  CPU C is stuck waiting for CPU B to respond to the IPI.

Deadlock.

The solution is to use stop_machine_run instead of call_smp_function
(call_smp_function should not be called in situations where the CPUs may be
suspended).

Trent Piepho [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:24:05 +0000]
Fix constant folding and poor optimization in byte swapping code

Constant folding does not work for the swabXX() byte swapping functions,
and the C versions optimize poorly.

Attempting to initialize a global variable to swab16(0x1234) or put
something like "case swab32(42):" in a switch statement will not compile.
It can work, swab.h just isn't doing it correctly.  This patch fixes that.

Contrary to the comment in asm-i386/byteorder.h, gcc does not recognize the
"C" version of swab16 and turn it into efficient code.  gcc can do this,
just not with the current code.  The simple function:

u16 foo(u16 x) { return swab16(x); }

Would compile to:
        movzwl  %ax, %eax
        movl    %eax, %edx
        shrl    $8, %eax
        sall    $8, %edx
        orl     %eax, %edx

With this patch, it will compile to:
        rolw    $8, %ax

I also attempted to document the maze different macros/inline functions
that are used to create the final product.

12 years agoipmi: allow shared interrupts

ipmi: allow shared interrupts

The IPMI driver used enable_irq and disable_irq when it got into situations
where it couldn't allocate memory; it did this to avoid having the interrupt
just lock the machine when it couldn't get memory to perform the transaction
to disable the interrupt.

This patch modifies the driver to not use disable_irq and enable_irq.  It
instead sends the messages to the BMC to perform this operation.  It also
makes sure interrupts are cleanly disabled when the interface is shut down and
cleans up some shutdown things that are no longer necessary.

12 years agomm: shrink parent dentries when shrinking slab
Andrew Morton [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:23:49 +0000]
mm: shrink parent dentries when shrinking slab

Teach the dentry slab shrinker to aggressively shrink parent dentries when
shrinking the dentry cache.

This is done to attempt to improve the situation where the dentry slab cache
gets a lot of internal fragmentation due to pages containing directory
dentries.  It is expected that this change will cause some of those dentries
to be reaped earlier, and with less scanning.

Needs careful testing.

12 years agofix quadratic behavior of shrink_dcache_parent()
Miklos Szeredi [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:23:46 +0000]
fix quadratic behavior of shrink_dcache_parent()

The time shrink_dcache_parent() takes, grows quadratically with the depth
of the tree under 'parent'.  This starts to get noticable at about 10,000.

These kinds of depths don't occur normally, and filesystems which invoke
shrink_dcache_parent() via d_invalidate() seem to have other depth
dependent timings, so it's not even easy to expose this problem.

However with FUSE it's easy to create a deep tree and d_invalidate()
will also get called.  This can make a syscall hang for a very long
time.

This is the original discovery of the problem by Russ Cox:

  http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.file-systems.fuse.devel/3826

The following patch fixes the quadratic behavior, by optionally allowing
prune_dcache() to prune ancestors of a dentry in one go, instead of doing
it one at a time.

Common code in dput() and prune_one_dentry() is extracted into a new helper
function d_kill().

shrink_dcache_parent() as well as shrink_dcache_sb() are converted to use
the ancestry-pruner option.  Only for shrink_dcache_memory() is this
behavior not desirable, so it keeps using the old algorithm.

12 years agoreduce size of task_struct on 64-bit machines
William Cohen [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:23:41 +0000]
reduce size of task_struct on 64-bit machines

This past week I was playing around with that pahole tool
(http://oops.ghostprotocols.net:81/acme/dwarves/) and looking at the size
of various struct in the kernel.  I was surprised by the size of the
task_struct on x86_64, approaching 4K.  I looked through the fields in
task_struct and found that a number of them were declared as "unsigned
long" rather than "unsigned int" despite them appearing okay as 32-bit
sized fields.  On x86_64 "unsigned long" ends up being 8 bytes in size and
forces 8 byte alignment.  Is there a reason there a reason they are
"unsigned long"?

The patch below drops the size of the struct from 3808 bytes (60 64-byte
cachelines) to 3760 bytes (59 64-byte cachelines).  A couple other fields
in the task struct take a signficant amount of space:

struct thread_struct       thread;               688
struct held_lock           held_locks[30];       1680

CONFIG_LOCKDEP is turned on in the .config

Andreas says:

This patch is now treating timestamps with the high bit set as negative
times (before Jan 1, 1970).  This means we lose 1/2 of the possible range
of timestamps (lopping off 68 years before unix timestamp overflow -
now only 30 years away :-) to handle the extremely rare case of setting
timestamps into the distant past.

If we are only interested in fixing the underflow case, we could just
limit the values to 0 instead of storing negative values.  At worst this
will skew the timestamp by a few hours for timezones in the far east
(files would still show Jan 1, 1970 in "ls -l" output).

That said, it seems 32-bit systems (mine at least) allow files to be set
into the past (01/01/1907 works fine) so it seems this patch is bringing
the x86_64 behaviour into sync with other kernels.

On the plus side, we have a patch that is ready to add nanosecond timestamps
to ext3 and as an added bonus adds 2 high bits to the on-disk timestamp so
this extends the maximum date to 2242.
