11 years agoftrace: irqs off smp_processor_id() fix
Steven Rostedt [Mon, 12 May 2008 19:20:44 +0000]
ftrace: irqs off smp_processor_id() fix

The irqsoff function tracer did a __get_cpu_var to determine
if it should trace the function or not. The problem is that
__get_cpu_var can preempt between getting the CPU and reading
the cpu variable. This means that the cpu variable that is
being read is not from the cpu being run on.

At worst, this can give a false positive, where we trace the
function when we should not.  It will never give a false negative
since we only want to trace when interrupts are disabled
and we never preempt when they are.

This fix adds a check after reading the irq flags to only
trace if the interrupts are actually disabled. It also changes
the reading of the cpu variable to use a raw_smp_processor_id
since we now don't care if we preempt. We still catch that fact.

11 years agoftrace: debug smp_processor_id, use notrace preempt disable
Steven Rostedt [Mon, 12 May 2008 19:20:44 +0000]
ftrace: debug smp_processor_id, use notrace preempt disable

The debug smp_processor_id caused a recursive fault in debugging
the irqsoff tracer. The tracer used a smp_processor_id in the
ftrace callback, and this function called preempt_disable which
also is traced. This caused a recursive fault (stack overload).

Since using smp_processor_id without debugging on does not cause
faults with the tracer (even when the tracer is wrong), the
debug version should not cause a system reboot.

This changes the debug_smp_processor_id to use the notrace versions
of preempt_disable and enable.

11 years agoftrace: add filter select functions to trace
Steven Rostedt [Mon, 12 May 2008 19:20:43 +0000]
ftrace: add filter select functions to trace

This patch adds two files to the debugfs system:

 /debugfs/tracing/available_filter_functions

and

 /debugfs/tracing/set_ftrace_filter

The available_filter_functions lists all functions that has been
recorded by the ftraced that has called the ftrace_record_ip function.
This is to allow users to see what functions have been converted
to nops and can be enabled for tracing.

To enable functions, simply echo the names (whitespace delimited)
into set_ftrace_filter. Simple wildcards are also allowed.

echo 'scheduler' > /debugfs/tracing/set_ftrace_filter

Will have only the scheduler be activated when tracing is enabled.

echo 'sched_*' > /debugfs/tracing/set_ftrace_filter

Will have only the functions starting with 'sched_' be activated.

echo '*lock' > /debugfs/tracing/set_ftrace_filter

Will have only functions ending with 'lock' be activated.

echo '*lock*' > /debugfs/tracing/set_ftrace_filter

Will have only functions with 'lock' in its name be activated.

Note: 'sched*lock' will not work. The only wildcards that are
allowed is an asterisk and the beginning and or end of the string
passed in.

Multiple names can be passed in with whitespace delimited:

echo 'scheduler *lock *acpi*' > /debugfs/tracing/set_ftrace_filter

is also the same as:

echo 'scheduler' > /debugfs/tracing/set_ftrace_filter
echo '*lock' >> /debugfs/tracing/set_ftrace_filter
echo '*acpi*' >> /debugfs/tracing/set_ftrace_filter

Appending does just that. It appends to the list.

To disable all filters simply echo an empty line in:

echo > /debugfs/tracing/set_ftrace_filter

11 years agoftrace: use dynamic patching for updating mcount calls
Steven Rostedt [Mon, 12 May 2008 19:20:43 +0000]
ftrace: use dynamic patching for updating mcount calls

This patch replaces the indirect call to the mcount function
pointer with a direct call that will be patched by the
dynamic ftrace routines.

On boot up, the mcount function calls the ftace_stub function.
When the dynamic ftrace code is initialized, the ftrace_stub
is replaced with a call to the ftrace_record_ip, which records
the instruction pointers of the locations that call it.

Later, the ftraced daemon will call kstop_machine and patch all
the locations to nops.

When a ftrace is enabled, the original calls to mcount will now
be set top call ftrace_caller, which will do a direct call
to the registered ftrace function. This direct call is also patched
when the function that should be called is updated.

All patching is performed by a kstop_machine routine to prevent any
type of race conditions that is associated with modifying code
on the fly.

11 years agoftrace: dynamic enabling/disabling of function calls
Steven Rostedt [Mon, 12 May 2008 19:20:42 +0000]
ftrace: dynamic enabling/disabling of function calls

This patch adds a feature to dynamically replace the ftrace code
with the jmps to allow a kernel with ftrace configured to run
as fast as it can without it configured.

The way this works, is on bootup (if ftrace is enabled), a ftrace
function is registered to record the instruction pointer of all
places that call the function.

Later, if there's still any code to patch, a kthread is awoken
(rate limited to at most once a second) that performs a stop_machine,
and replaces all the code that was called with a jmp over the call
to ftrace. It only replaces what was found the previous time. Typically
the system reaches equilibrium quickly after bootup and there's no code
patching needed at all.

e.g.

  call ftrace  /* 5 bytes */

is replaced with

  jmp 3f  /* jmp is 2 bytes and we jump 3 forward */
3:

When we want to enable ftrace for function tracing, the IP recording
is removed, and stop_machine is called again to replace all the locations
of that were recorded back to the call of ftrace.  When it is disabled,
we replace the code back to the jmp.

Allocation is done by the kthread. If the ftrace recording function is
called, and we don't have any record slots available, then we simply
skip that call. Once a second a new page (if needed) is allocated for
recording new ftrace function calls.  A large batch is allocated at
boot up to get most of the calls there.

Because we do this via stop_machine, we don't have to worry about another
CPU executing a ftrace call as we modify it. But we do need to worry
about NMI's so all functions that might be called via nmi must be
annotated with notrace_nmi. When this code is configured in, the NMI code
will not call notrace.

11 years agoftrace: trace preempt off critical timings

ftrace: trace preempt off critical timings

Add preempt off timings. A lot of kernel core code is taken from the RT patch
latency trace that was written by Ingo Molnar.

This adds "preemptoff" and "preemptirqsoff" to /debugfs/tracing/available_tracers

Now instead of just tracing irqs off, preemption off can be selected
to be recorded.

When this is selected, it shares the same files as irqs off timings.
One can either trace preemption off, irqs off, or one or the other off.

By echoing "preemptoff" into /debugfs/tracing/current_tracer, recording
of preempt off only is performed. "irqsoff" will only record the time
irqs are disabled, but "preemptirqsoff" will take the total time irqs
or preemption are disabled. Runtime switching of these options is now
supported by simpling echoing in the appropriate trace name into
/debugfs/tracing/current_tracer.

ftrace: function tracer

This is a simple trace that uses the ftrace infrastructure. It is
designed to be fast and small, and easy to use. It is useful to
record things that happen over a very short period of time, and
not to analyze the system in general.

 Updates:

     "function" is added to this file.

    To enable the function tracer:

      echo function > /debugfs/tracing/current_tracer

     To disable the tracer:

       echo disable > /debugfs/tracing/current_tracer

The output of the function_trace file is as follows

11 years agoftrace: latency tracer infrastructure
Steven Rostedt [Mon, 12 May 2008 19:20:42 +0000]
ftrace: latency tracer infrastructure

This patch adds the latency tracer infrastructure. This patch
does not add anything that will select and turn it on, but will
be used by later patches.

If it were to be compiled, it would add the following files
to the debugfs:

 The root tracing directory:

  /debugfs/tracing/

This patch also adds the following files:

  available_tracers
     list of available tracers. Currently no tracers are
     available. Looking into this file only shows
     "none" which is used to unregister all tracers.

  current_tracer
     The trace that is currently active. Empty on start up.
     To switch to a tracer simply echo one of the tracers that
     are listed in available_tracers:

   example: (used with later patches)

      echo function > /debugfs/tracing/current_tracer

     To disable the tracer:

       echo disable > /debugfs/tracing/current_tracer

  tracing_enabled
     echoing "1" into this file starts the ftrace function tracing
      (if sysctl kernel.ftrace_enabled=1)
     echoing "0" turns it off.

  latency_trace
      This file is readonly and holds the result of the trace.

  trace
      This file outputs a easier to read version of the trace.

  iter_ctrl
      Controls the way the output of traces look.
      So far there's two controls:
        echoing in "symonly" will only show the kallsyms variables
            without the addresses (if kallsyms was configured)
        echoing in "verbose" will change the output to show
            a lot more data, but not very easy to understand by
            humans.
        echoing in "nosymonly" turns off symonly.
        echoing in "noverbose" turns off verbose.

11 years agoftrace: add basic support for gcc profiler instrumentation
Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo [Mon, 12 May 2008 19:20:42 +0000]
ftrace: add basic support for gcc profiler instrumentation

If CONFIG_FTRACE is selected and /proc/sys/kernel/ftrace_enabled is
set to a non-zero value the ftrace routine will be called everytime
we enter a kernel function that is not marked with the "notrace"
attribute.

The ftrace routine will then call a registered function if a function
happens to be registered.

[ This code has been highly hacked by Steven Rostedt and Ingo Molnar,
  so don't blame Arnaldo for all of this ;-) ]

Update:
  It is now possible to register more than one ftrace function.
  If only one ftrace function is registered, that will be the
  function that ftrace calls directly. If more than one function
  is registered, then ftrace will call a function that will loop
  through the functions to call.

sparc64: Fix kernel thread stack termination.

Because of the silly way I set up the initial stack for
new kernel threads, there is a loop at the top of the
stack.

To fix this, properly add another stack frame that is copied
from the parent and terminate it in the child by setting
the frame pointer in that frame to zero.

11 years agotcp: TCP connection times out if ICMP frag needed is delayed
Sridhar Samudrala [Wed, 21 May 2008 23:42:20 +0000]
tcp: TCP connection times out if ICMP frag needed is delayed

We are seeing an issue with TCP in handling an ICMP frag needed
message that is received after net.ipv4.tcp_retries1 retransmits.
The default value of retries1 is 3. So if the path mtu changes
and ICMP frag needed is lost for the first 3 retransmits or if
it gets delayed until 3 retransmits are done, TCP doesn't update
MSS correctly and continues to retransmit the orginal message
until it timesout after tcp_retries2 retransmits.

I am seeing this issue even with the latest 2.6.25.4 kernel.

In tcp_retransmit_timer(), when retransmits counter exceeds
tcp_retries1 value, the dst cache entry of the socket is reset.
At this time, if we receive an ICMP frag needed message, the
dst entry gets updated with the new MTU, but the TCP sockets
dst_cache entry remains NULL.

So the next time when we try to retransmit after the ICMP frag
needed is received, tcp_retransmit_skb() gets called. Here the
cur_mss value is calculated at the start of the routine with
a NULL sk_dst_cache. Instead we should call tcp_current_mss after
the rebuild_header that caches the dst entry with the updated mtu.
Also the rebuild_header should be called before tcp_fragment
so that skb is fragmented if the mss goes down.

ath5k: Fix loop variable initializations

In ath5k_tasklet_rx, both status structures 'rxs' and 'rs' are
initialized at the top of the tasklet, but not within the loop.
If the loop is executed multiple times in the tasklet then the
variables may see changes from previous packets.

For TKIP, this results in 'Invalid Michael MIC' errors if two packets
are processed in the tasklet: rxs.flag gets set to RX_DECRYPTED by
mac80211 when it decrypts the first encrypted packet.  The subsequent
packet will have RX_DECRYPTED set upon entry to mac80211, so mac80211
will not try to decrypt it.

We currently initialize all but two fields in the structures, so fix
the other two.

ipsec: Use the correct ip_local_out function

Because the IPsec output function xfrm_output_resume does its
own dst_output call it should always call __ip_local_output
instead of ip_local_output as the latter may invoke dst_output
directly.  Otherwise the return values from nf_hook and dst_output
may clash as they both use the value 1 but for different purposes.

When that clash occurs this can cause a packet to be used after
it has been freed which usually leads to a crash.  Because the
offending value is only returned from dst_output with qdiscs
such as HTB, this bug is normally not visible.

Thanks to Marco Berizzi for his perseverance in tracking this
down.
