[PATCH] readahead: reset cache_hit earlier

We don't reset the cache hit count until after readahead does a successful
readahead.  This seems to leave a corner case open where we miss in cache,
but don't restart the readhead right away.

[PATCH] optimize writer path in time_interpolator_get_counter()

      Christoph Lameter <clameter@engr.sgi.com>

When using a time interpolator that is susceptible to jitter there's
potentially contention over a cmpxchg used to prevent time from going
backwards.  This is unnecessary when the caller holds the xtime write
seqlock as all readers will be blocked from returning until the write is
complete.  We can therefore allow writers to insert a new value and exit
rather than fight with CPUs who only hold a reader lock.

13 years ago[PATCH] disk quotas fail when /etc/mtab is symlinked to /proc/mounts
Mark Bellon [Tue, 6 Sep 2005 22:16:54 +0000]
[PATCH] disk quotas fail when /etc/mtab is symlinked to /proc/mounts

If /etc/mtab is a regular file all of the mount options (of a file system)
are written to /etc/mtab by the mount command.  The quota tools look there
for the quota strings for their operation.  If, however, /etc/mtab is a
symlink to /proc/mounts (a "good thing" in some environments) the tools
don't write anything - they assume the kernel will take care of things.

While the quota options are sent down to the kernel via the mount system
call and the file system codes handle them properly unfortunately there is
no code to echo the quota strings into /proc/mounts and the quota tools
fail in the symlink case.

The attached patchs modify the EXT[2|3] and JFS codes to add the necessary
hooks.  The show_options function of each file system in these patches
currently deal with only those things that seemed related to quotas;
especially in the EXT3 case more can be done (later?).

Jan Kara also noted the difficulty in moving these changes above the FS
codes responding similarly to myself to Andrew's comment about possible
VFS migration. Issue summary:

 - FS codes have to process the entire string of options anyway.

 - Only FS codes that use quotas must have a show_options function (for
   quotas to work properly) however quotas are only used in a small number
   of FS.

 - Since most of the quota using FS support other options these FS codes
   should have the a show_options function to show those options - and the
   quota echoing becomes virtually negligible.

Based on feedback I have modified my patches from the original:

   JFS a missing patch has been restored to the posting
   EXT[2|3] and JFS always use the show_options function
       - Each FS has at least one FS specific option displayed
       - QUOTA output is under a CONFIG_QUOTA ifdef
       - a follow-on patch will add a multitude of options for each FS
   EXT[2|3] and JFS "quota" is treated as "usrquota"
   EXT3 journalled data check for journalled quota removed
   EXT[2|3] mount when quota specified but not compiled in

 - no changes from my original patch.  I tested the patch and the codes
   warn but

 - still mount.  With all due respection I believe the comments
   otherwise were a

 - misread of the patch.  Please reread/test and comment.  XFS patch
   removed - the XFS team already made the necessary changes EXT3 mixing
   old and new quotas are handled differently (not purely exclusive)

 - if old and new quotas for the same type are used together the old
   type is silently depricated for compatability (e.g.  usrquota and
   usrjquota)

 - mixing of old and new quotas is an error (e.g.  usrjquota and
   grpquota)

Daniel Ritz [Tue, 6 Sep 2005 22:16:50 +0000]
[PATCH] yenta: make ToPIC95 bridges work with 16bit cards

ToPIC95 brides (and maybe some other too) require to use the ExCA registers
to power up the socket if a 16bit card is pluged.  allow socket drivers to
set a flag so that yenta does just that.  also clean up yenta_get_status()
a bit to use the new yenta_get_power() function.

Side note: ToPIC97 bridges (at least in Rev.5 i have) don't require this.

Ryan Underwood <nemesis-lists@icequake.net> said:

 According to the mail that David Hinds received from a Toshiba engineer,
 ToPIC95 and 97 do require this, and ToPIC100 does not.  Maybe you have a
 later revision.

 For all chips, 16-bit cards can be enabled through ExCA.  So doesn't it
 make sense just to make this the default behavior for all Toshiba chips,
 to avoid corner cases showing up later?

Daniel responded:

 I disagree with ryan to change anything for topic97 bridges.  they work.
 and I couldn't find (read google) any report of a topic97 breaking on
 applying power with the CB registers.

 I'm having several toshba notebooks at work (and home) with topic95,97,100
 bridges.  Only the ones with a topic95 didn't work.

__compat_[ug]id_t __kernel_[ug]id_t
__compat_[ug]id32_t __kernel_[ug]id32_t
compat_[ug]id_t [ug]id_t

The difference is that compat_uid_t is always 32 bits (for the archs we
care about) but __compat_uid_t may be 16 bits on some.

13 years ago[PATCH] kallsyms: change compression algorithm
Paulo Marques [Tue, 6 Sep 2005 22:16:31 +0000]
[PATCH] kallsyms: change compression algorithm

This patch changes the way the compression algorithm works.  The base
algorithm is similiar to the previous but we force the compressed token
size to 2.

Having a fixed size compressed token allows for a lot of optimizations, and
that in turn allows this code to run over *all* the symbols faster than it
did before over just a subset.

Having it work over all the symbols will make it behave better when symbols
change positions between passes, and the "inconsistent kallsyms" messages
should become less frequent.

In my tests the compression ratio was degraded by about 0.5%, but the
results will depend greatly on the number of symbols to compress.

13 years ago[PATCH] relayfs
Tom Zanussi [Tue, 6 Sep 2005 22:16:30 +0000]
[PATCH] relayfs

Here's the latest version of relayfs, against linux-2.6.11-mm2.  I'm hoping
you'll consider putting this version back into your tree - the previous
rounds of comment seem to have shaken out all the API issues and the number
of comments on the code itself have also steadily dwindled.

This patch is essentially the same as the relayfs redux part 5 patch, with
some minor changes based on reviewer comments.  Thanks again to Pekka
Enberg for those.  The patch size without documentation is now a little
smaller at just over 40k.  Here's a detailed list of the changes:

- removed the attribute_flags in relay open and changed it to a
  boolean specifying either overwrite or no-overwrite mode, and removed
  everything referencing the attribute flags.
- added a check for NULL names in relayfs_create_entry()
- got rid of the unnecessary multiple labels in relay_create_buf()
- some minor simplification of relay_alloc_buf() which got rid of a
  couple params
- updated the Documentation

In addition, this version (through code contained in the relay-apps tarball
linked to below, not as part of the relayfs patch) tries to make it as easy
as possible to create the cooperating kernel/user pieces of a typical and
common type of logging application, one where kernel logging is kicked off
when a user space data collection app starts and stops when the collection
app exits, with the data being automatically logged to disk in between.  To
create this type of application, you basically just include a header file
(relay-app.h, included in the relay-apps tarball) in your kernel module,
define a couple of callbacks and call an initialization function, and on
the user side call a single function that sets up and continuously monitors
the buffers, and writes data to files as it becomes available.  Channels
are created when the collection app is started and destroyed when it exits,
not when the kernel module is inserted, so different channel buffer sizes
can be specified for each separate run via command-line options.  See the
README in the relay-apps tarball for details.

Also included in the relay-apps tarball are a couple examples
demonstrating how you can use this to create quick and dirty kernel
logging/debugging applications.  They are:

- tprintk, short for 'tee printk', which temporarily puts a kprobe on
  printk() and writes a duplicate stream of printk output to a relayfs
  channel.  This could be used anywhere there's printk() debugging code
  in the kernel which you'd like to exercise, but would rather not have
  your system logs cluttered with debugging junk.  You'd probably want
  to kill klogd while you do this, otherwise there wouldn't be much
  point (since putting a kprobe on printk() doesn't change the output
  of printk()).  I've used this method to temporarily divert the packet
  logging output of the iptables LOG target from the system logs to
  relayfs files instead, for instance.

- klog, which just provides a printk-like formatted logging function
  on top of relayfs.  Again, you can use this to keep stuff out of your
  system logs if used in place of printk.

The example applications can be found here:

[PATCH] detect soft lockups

This patch adds a new kernel debug feature: CONFIG_DETECT_SOFTLOCKUP.

When enabled then per-CPU watchdog threads are started, which try to run
once per second.  If they get delayed for more than 10 seconds then a
callback from the timer interrupt detects this condition and prints out a
warning message and a stack dump (once per lockup incident).  The feature
is otherwise non-intrusive, it doesnt try to unlock the box in any way, it
only gets the debug info out, automatically, and on all CPUs affected by
the lockup.

13 years ago[PATCH] FUTEX_WAKE_OP: pthread_cond_signal() speedup
Jakub Jelinek [Tue, 6 Sep 2005 22:16:25 +0000]
[PATCH] FUTEX_WAKE_OP: pthread_cond_signal() speedup

ATM pthread_cond_signal is unnecessarily slow, because it wakes one waiter
(which at least on UP usually means an immediate context switch to one of
the waiter threads).  This waiter wakes up and after a few instructions it
attempts to acquire the cv internal lock, but that lock is still held by
the thread calling pthread_cond_signal.  So it goes to sleep and eventually
the signalling thread is scheduled in, unlocks the internal lock and wakes
the waiter again.

Now, before 2003-09-21 NPTL was using FUTEX_REQUEUE in pthread_cond_signal
to avoid this performance issue, but it was removed when locks were
redesigned to the 3 state scheme (unlocked, locked uncontended, locked
contended).

Following scenario shows why simply using FUTEX_REQUEUE in
pthread_cond_signal together with using lll_mutex_unlock_force in place of
lll_mutex_unlock is not enough and probably why it has been disabled at
that time:

The number is value in cv->__data.__lock.
        thr1            thr2            thr3
0       pthread_cond_wait
1       lll_mutex_lock (cv->__data.__lock)
0       lll_mutex_unlock (cv->__data.__lock)
0       lll_futex_wait (&cv->__data.__futex, futexval)
0                       pthread_cond_signal
1                       lll_mutex_lock (cv->__data.__lock)
1                                       pthread_cond_signal
2                                       lll_mutex_lock (cv->__data.__lock)
2                                         lll_futex_wait (&cv->__data.__lock, 2)
2                       lll_futex_requeue (&cv->__data.__futex, 0, 1, &cv->__data.__lock)
                          # FUTEX_REQUEUE, not FUTEX_CMP_REQUEUE
2                       lll_mutex_unlock_force (cv->__data.__lock)
0                         cv->__data.__lock = 0
0                         lll_futex_wake (&cv->__data.__lock, 1)
1       lll_mutex_lock (cv->__data.__lock)
0       lll_mutex_unlock (cv->__data.__lock)
          # Here, lll_mutex_unlock doesn't know there are threads waiting
          # on the internal cv's lock

Now, I believe it is possible to use FUTEX_REQUEUE in pthread_cond_signal,
but it will cost us not one, but 2 extra syscalls and, what's worse, one of
these extra syscalls will be done for every single waiting loop in
pthread_cond_*wait.

We would need to use lll_mutex_unlock_force in pthread_cond_signal after
requeue and lll_mutex_cond_lock in pthread_cond_*wait after lll_futex_wait.

Another alternative is to do the unlocking pthread_cond_signal needs to do
(the lock can't be unlocked before lll_futex_wake, as that is racy) in the
kernel.

I have implemented both variants, futex-requeue-glibc.patch is the first
one and futex-wake_op{,-glibc}.patch is the unlocking inside of the kernel.
 The kernel interface allows userland to specify how exactly an unlocking
operation should look like (some atomic arithmetic operation with optional
constant argument and comparison of the previous futex value with another
constant).

It has been implemented just for ppc*, x86_64 and i?86, for other
architectures I'm including just a stub header which can be used as a
starting point by maintainers to write support for their arches and ATM
will just return -ENOSYS for FUTEX_WAKE_OP.  The requeue patch has been
(lightly) tested just on x86_64, the wake_op patch on ppc64 kernel running
32-bit and 64-bit NPTL and x86_64 kernel running 32-bit and 64-bit NPTL.

With the following benchmark on UP x86-64 I get:

Older futex-wake_op-glibc.patch version is at:
http://sourceware.org/ml/libc-alpha/2005-03/txt00003.txt
Will post a new version (just x86-64 fixes so that the patch
applies against pthread_cond_signal.S) to libc-hacker ml soon.

Attached is the kernel FUTEX_WAKE_OP patch as well as a simple-minded
testcase that will not test the atomicity of the operation, but at least
check if the threads that should have been woken up are woken up and
whether the arithmetic operation in the kernel gave the expected results.

13 years ago[PATCH] x86/x86_64: deferred handling of writes to /proc/irqxx/smp_affinity
Ashok Raj [Tue, 6 Sep 2005 22:16:15 +0000]
[PATCH] x86/x86_64: deferred handling of writes to /proc/irqxx/smp_affinity

When handling writes to /proc/irq, current code is re-programming rte
entries directly. This is not recommended and could potentially cause
chipset's to lockup, or cause missing interrupts.

CONFIG_IRQ_BALANCE does this correctly, where it re-programs only when the
interrupt is pending. The same needs to be done for /proc/irq handling as well.
Otherwise user space irq balancers are really not doing the right thing.

- Changed pending_irq_balance_cpumask to pending_irq_migrate_cpumask for
  lack of a generic name.
- added move_irq out of IRQ_BALANCE, and added this same to X86_64
- Added new proc handler for write, so we can do deferred write at irq
  handling time.
- Display of /proc/irq/XX/smp_affinity used to display CPU_MASKALL, instead
  it now shows only active cpu masks, or exactly what was set.
- Provided a common move_irq implementation, instead of duplicating
  when using generic irq framework.

Tested on i386/x86_64 and ia64 with CONFIG_PCI_MSI turned on and off.
Tested UP builds as well.

MSI testing: tbd: I have cards, need to look for a x-over cable, although I
did test an earlier version of this patch.  Will test in a couple days.

David Gibson [Tue, 6 Sep 2005 04:59:47 +0000]
[PATCH] Invert sense of SLB class bit

Currently, we set the class bit in kernel SLB entries, and clear it on
user SLB entries.  On POWER5, ERAT entries created in real mode have
the class bit clear.  So to avoid flushing kernel ERAT entries on each
context switch, this patch inverts our usage of the class bit, setting
it on user SLB entries and clearing it on kernel SLB entries.

Booted on POWER5 and G5.

[SPARC64]: Kconfig fix (GEN_RTC dependencies)

Yet another architecture not coverd by GEN_RTC - sparc64 never picked
it until now and it doesn't have asm/rtc.h to go with it, so it
wouldn't compile anyway (or have these ioctls in the user-visible

FWIW, I'm very tempted to introduce ARCH_HAS_GEN_RTC and have it set
in arch/*/Kconfig for architectures that know what to do with this
stuff - for something supposedly generic the list of architectures

cmpxchg has the following code:

__typeof__(*(ptr)) _n_ = (n);

Unfortunately it makes gcc 4.0 store and load the variables to the stack.
Eg in atomic_dec_and_test we get:

  stw     r10,112(r1)
  stw     r9,116(r1)
  lwz     r9,112(r1)
  lwz     r0,116(r1)

x86 is just casting the values so do that instead. Also change __xchg*
and __cmpxchg* to take unsigned values, removing a few sign extensions.

access times when tg3_poll() runs.

In the non-MSI irq handlers, we need to check the status block because
interrupts may be shared. Only prefetches for the next rx descriptors
are added.

13 years ago[PATCH] klist: fix klist to have the same klist_add semantics as list_head
James Bottomley [Fri, 19 Aug 2005 13:14:01 +0000]
[PATCH] klist: fix klist to have the same klist_add semantics as list_head

at the moment, the list_head semantics are

list_add(node, head)

whereas current klist semantics are

klist_add(head, node)

This is bound to cause confusion, and since klist is the newcomer, it
should follow the list_head semantics.

I also added missing include guards to klist.h
