[PATCH] RapidIO support: core base

Adds a RapidIO subsystem to the kernel.  RIO is a switched fabric interconnect
used in higher-end embedded applications.  The curious can look at the specs
over at http://www.rapidio.org

The core code implements enumeration/discovery, management of
devices/resources, and interfaces for RIO drivers.

There's a lot more to do to take advantages of all the hardware features.
However, this should provide a good base for folks with RIO hardware to start
contributing.

Ananth N Mavinakayanahalli [Mon, 7 Nov 2005 09:00:07 +0000]
[PATCH] Kprobes: rearrange preempt_disable/enable() calls

The following set of patches are aimed at improving kprobes scalability.  We
currently serialize kprobe registration, unregistration and handler execution
using a single spinlock - kprobe_lock.

With these changes, kprobe handlers can run without any locks held.  It also
allows for simultaneous kprobe handler executions on different processors as
we now track kprobe execution on a per processor basis.  It is now necessary
that the handlers be re-entrant since handlers can run concurrently on
multiple processors.

All changes have been tested on i386, ia64, ppc64 and x86_64, while sparc64
has been compile tested only.

The patches can be viewed as 3 logical chunks:

patch 1:  Reorder preempt_(dis/en)able calls
patches 2-7:  Introduce per_cpu data areas to track kprobe execution
patches 8-9:  Use RCU to synchronize kprobe (un)registration and handler
execution.

Thanks to Maneesh Soni, James Keniston and Anil Keshavamurthy for their
review and suggestions. Thanks again to Anil, Hien Nguyen and Kevin Stafford
for testing the patches.

This patch:

Reorder preempt_disable/enable() calls in arch kprobes files in preparation to
introduce locking changes.  No functional changes introduced by this patch.

If a panic came from the IPMI watchdog pretimeout and that was reported via
an NMI, it would also be reported via the standard IPMI flags, which would

Corey Minyard [Mon, 7 Nov 2005 09:00:03 +0000]
[PATCH] ipmi: add timer thread

We must poll for responses to commands when interrupts aren't in use.  The
default poll interval is based on using a kernel timer, which varies with HZ.
For character-based interfaces like KCS and SMIC though, that can be way too
slow (>15 minutes to flash a new firmware with KCS, >20 seconds to retrieve
the sensor list).

This creates a low-priority kernel thread to poll more often.  If the state
machine is idle, so is the kernel thread.  But if there's an active command,
it polls quite rapidly.  This decrease a firmware flash time from 15 minutes
to 1.5 minutes, and the sensor list time to 4.5 seconds, on a Dell PowerEdge
x8x system.

The timer-based polling remains, to ensure some amount of responsiveness even
under high user process CPU load.

Checking for a stopped timer at rmmod now uses atomics and del_timer_sync() to
ensure safe stoppage.

[PATCH] ipmi: kcs error0 delay

BMCs can get into ERROR0 state while flashing new firmware, particularly while
the BMC is erasing the next flash block, which may take a just under 2 seconds
on a Dell PowerEdge 2800 (1.75 seconds typical), during which time the
single-threaded firmware may not be able to process new commands.  In
particular, clearing OBF may not take effect immediately.

We want it to delay in ERROR0 after clearing OBF a bit waiting for OBF to
actually be clear before proceeding.

This introduces a new return value from the LLDD's event loop,
SI_SM_CALL_WITH_TICK_DELAY.  This means the calling thread/timer should
schedule_timeout() at least 1 tick, rather than busy-wait.  This is a longer
delay than SI_SM_CALL_WITH_DELAY, which is typically a 250us busy-wait.

Corey Minyard [Mon, 7 Nov 2005 09:00:01 +0000]
[PATCH] ipmi: bt restart reset fixes

The current BT retry/reset mechanism fails to succeed on a PowerEdge 1650,
when the controller is wedged with B2H_ATN asserted at XACTION_START.  If this
occurs, no further commands will ever succeed unless the state of the
controller is first cleared out.

Furthermore, the soft reset would only occur if the first command after insmod
was the one that timed out, not if a later command timed out.

This patch changes the retry/reset mechanism to be as follows:

Before retrying a command, clear the state of the BT controller such that the
flags represent ready for a new transaction.  This increases the chance of
success of the restarted transaction.

After 2 retries, issue a soft reset and retry one more time before giving up
and reporting back a failure.

immediately, or modified, prior to being sent to ->start_transaction().

Corey Minyard [Mon, 7 Nov 2005 08:59:56 +0000]
[PATCH] ipmi: various si cleanup

A number of small changes for the various system interface drivers,
consolidated from a number of patches from Matt Domsch.

Clear B2H_ATN and drain the BMC message buffer on command timeout.  This
prevents further commands from failing after a timeout.

Add bt_debug and smic_debug module parameters, expose them in sysfs.  This
lets you enable and disable debugging messages at runtime.

Unsigned jiffies math in ipmi_si_intf.c causes a too-large value to be passed
to ->event() after jiffies wrap-around.  The BT driver had caught this, but
didn't know how to fix it.  Now all calls to ->event() use a sane value for
time.

Increase timeout for commands handed to the BT driver from 2 seconds to 5
seconds.  This is necessary particularly when the previous command was a
"Clear SEL", as that command completes, yet the BMC isn't really ready to
handle another command yet.

Silence BT debugging messages which were being printed on the console.

Increase SMIC timeout form 1/10s to 2s.  This is needed on Dell PowerEdge 2650
and PowerEdge 750 with ERA/O cards to allow commands to complete without
timing out.

Adds kcs_debug module param, to match behavior of BT and SMIC.  This also
prevents messages from being sent to the console unless explicitly requested.

[PATCH] ipmi: use refcount in message handler

This patch is rather large, but it really can't be done in smaller chunks
easily and I believe it is an important change.  This has been out and tested
for a while in the latest IPMI driver release.  There are no functional
changes, just changes as necessary to convert the locking over (and a few
minor style updates).

The IPMI driver uses read/write locks to ensure that things exist while they
are in use.  This is bad from a number of points of view.  This patch removes
the rwlocks and uses refcounts and RCU lists to manage what the locks did.

close to one another), and use these statistics to make better choices about
whether or not to do anticipatory waiting.

Help and analysis from Seetharami Seelam <seelam@cs.utep.edu>

Performance testing from Seelam:

I set up my system and executed a couple of tests that I used for OLS.  I
tested with AS, cooperative process patch merged in -mm tree (which I called
Nick, below) and the cooperative patch with modifications to as_update_iohist
(which I called Seelam).

I used a dual-processor (2.28GHz Pentium 4 Xeon) system, with 1 GB main memory
and 1 MB L2 cache, running Linux 2.6.9.  Only a single processor is used for
the experiments.  I used 7.2K RPM Maxtor 10GB drive configured with ext2 file
system.

Experiment 1 (ex1) consists of reading  one Linux source trees using

  find . -type f -exec cat '{}' ';' > /dev/null.

Experiment 2 (ex2) consists of reading two disjoint Linux source trees
using

  find . -type f -exec cat '{}' ';' > /dev/null.

Experiment 3 (ex3) consists of streaming read of a 2GB file in the background
and 1 instance of the chunk reads in Experiment 1.

Timings for reading the Linux source are shown below:

             AS                     Nick          Seelam
ex1:      0m25.813s               0m27.859s      0m27.640s
ex2:      1m11.468s               1m13.918s      1m5.869s
ex3:      81m44.352s             10m38.572s      6m47.994s

The difference between the numbers in Experiment 3 must be due to the code in
as_update_iohist.  (akpm: that's not part of this patch.  So this patch is
"Nick").

[PATCH] consolidate sys_ptrace()

The sys_ptrace boilerplate code (everything outside the big switch
statement for the arch-specific requests) is shared by most architectures.
This patch moves it to kernel/ptrace.c and leaves the arch-specific code as
arch_ptrace.

Some architectures have a too different ptrace so we have to exclude them.
They continue to keep their implementations.  For sh64 I had to add a
sh64_ptrace wrapper because it does some initialization on the first call.
For um I removed an ifdefed SUBARCH_PTRACE_SPECIAL block, but
SUBARCH_PTRACE_SPECIAL isn't defined anywhere in the tree.

[PATCH] FUTEX_WAKE_OP: enhanced error handling

The code for FUTEX_WAKE_OP calls an arch callback,
futex_atomic_op_inuser().  That callback can return an error code, but
currently the caller assumes any error is EFAULT, and will try various
things to resolve the fault before eventually giving up with EFAULT
(regardless of the original error code).  This is not a theoretical case -
arch callbacks currently return -ENOSYS if the opcode they are given is
bogus.

This patch alters the code to detect non-EFAULT errors and return them
directly to the user.

Of course, whether -ENOSYS is the correct return value for the bogus opcode
case, or whether EINVAL would be more appropriate is another question.

[PATCH] aio: remove aio_max_nr accounting race

AIO was adding a new context's max requests to the global total before
testing if that resulting total was over the global limit.  This let
innocent tasks get their new limit tested along with a racing guilty task
that was crossing the limit.  This serializes the _nr accounting with a
spinlock It also switches to using unsigned long for the global totals.
Individual contexts are still limited to an unsigned int's worth of
requests by the syscall interface.

The problem and fix were verified with a simple program that spun creating
and destroying a context while holding on to another long lived context.
Before the patch a task creating a tiny context could get a spurious EAGAIN
if it raced with a task creating a very large context that overran the
limit.

This driver is buggy.  You must not provide your own release function - it
doesn't solve the problem which the warning (which you get when you don't
provide one) is telling you about.

You should convert your device driver over to the replacement dynamic platform
support, once it is merged.  IOW, something like:

pdev = platform_device_alloc("mydev", id);

ARRAY_SIZE(resources));
if (err == 0)
err = platform_device_add_data(pdev, &platform_data,
sizeof(platform_data));
if (err == 0)

primary maintainer for the HPET driver.  Clemens has i386 hardware with
HPET and is a better choice than me because of this.  I've shared this
patch with all cc: recipients and there is agreement on ownership.
Hopefully this eliminates future confusion in terms of where HPET
maintenance is owned.

Remove pagex pseudo page fault code.  It does not work together with the
system call speedup that makes the complete system call path enabled for
interrupts.  To make pagex and the syscall speedup code work together we would
have to add code to the program check handler to do a critical section cleanup
like the asynchronous interrupt code.  This would make program checks slower.
Not what we want.

Newer versions of z/VM have the improved pfault pseudo page fault interface.
This replaces the old pagex interface and does not have the problem.  So its
better to just rip out the pagex code.

register layout on stack) from host userspace headers, we needed to make the
arch for building HOST binaries match our one: i.e.  on a 64bit system
compiling 32bit binaries, we compile 32-bit hostprogs and need, say, 32-bit
ncurses.  Now we can revert that - that avoids problem with, say, menuconfig
and ncurses, on a system which can't compile well 32-bit programs.

fields is wrong for bigendians (e.g.  s390)

I replaced bytewise copying by memcpy(), maybe even that might be removed, if
ifa->ifa_address/mask may be used immediately.

14 years ago[PATCH] uml: fix syscall stubs
Paolo 'Blaisorblade' Giarrusso [Mon, 7 Nov 2005 08:58:46 +0000]
[PATCH] uml: fix syscall stubs

Jeff Dike noted that the assembly code for syscall stubs is misassembled with
GCC 3.2.3: the values copied in registers weren't preserved between one asm()
and the following one.

So I fixed the thing by rewriting the __asm__ constraints more like unistd.h
ones.

Note: in syscall6 case I had to add one more instruction (i.e.  moving arg6 in
eax and shuffling things around) - it's needed for the function to be valid in
general (we can't load the value from the stack, relative to ebp, because we
change it), but could be avoided since we actually use a constant as param 6.

The only fix would be to turn stub_syscall6 to a macro and use a "i"
constraint for arg6 (i.e., specify it's a constant value).

[PATCH] uml: improve stub debugging

Add some more debugging information when a stub does something unexpected,
usually segfaulting.  Now, it dumps out the stub's registers as well as the
signal.

Heiko Carstens [Mon, 7 Nov 2005 08:58:38 +0000]
[PATCH] cpu hoptlug: avoid usage of smp_processor_id() in preemptible code

Replace smp_processor_id() with any_online_cpu(cpu_online_map) in order to
avoid lots of "BUG: using smp_processor_id() in preemptible [00000001]
code:..." messages in case taking a cpu online fails.

All the traces start at the last notifier_call_chain(...) in kernel/cpu.c.
Since we hold the cpu_control semaphore it shouldn't be any problem to access
cpu_online_map.

The reason why cpu_up failed is simply that the cpu that was supposed to be
taken online wasn't even there.  That is because on s390 we never know when a
new cpu comes and therefore cpu_possible_map consists of only ones and doesn't
reflect reality.
