12 years agoApply memory policies to top two highest zones when highest zone is ZONE_MOVABLE
Mel Gorman [Wed, 22 Aug 2007 21:02:05 +0000]
Apply memory policies to top two highest zones when highest zone is ZONE_MOVABLE

The NUMA layer only supports NUMA policies for the highest zone.  When
ZONE_MOVABLE is configured with kernelcore=, the the highest zone becomes
ZONE_MOVABLE.  The result is that policies are only applied to allocations
like anonymous pages and page cache allocated from ZONE_MOVABLE when the
zone is used.

This patch applies policies to the two highest zones when the highest zone
is ZONE_MOVABLE.  As ZONE_MOVABLE consists of pages from the highest "real"
zone, it's always functionally equivalent.

The patch has been tested on a variety of machines both NUMA and non-NUMA
covering x86, x86_64 and ppc64.  No abnormal results were seen in
kernbench, tbench, dbench or hackbench.  It passes regression tests from
the numactl package with and without kernelcore= once numactl tests are
patched to wait for vmstat counters to update.

akpm: this is the nasty hack to fix NUMA mempolicies in the presence of
ZONE_MOVABLE and kernelcore= in 2.6.23.  Christoph says "For .24 either merge
the mobility or get the other solution that Mel is working on.  That solution
would only use a single zonelist per node and filter on the fly.  That may
help performance and also help to make memory policies work better."

12 years agoautofs4: deadlock during create
Ian Kent [Wed, 22 Aug 2007 21:01:54 +0000]
autofs4: deadlock during create

Due to inconsistent locking in the VFS between calls to lookup and
revalidate deadlock can occur in the automounter.

The inconsistency is that the directory inode mutex is held for both lookup
and revalidate calls when called via lookup_hash whereas it is held only
for lookup during a path walk.  Consequently, if the mutex is held during a
call to revalidate autofs4 can't release the mutex to callback the daemon
as it can't know whether it owns the mutex.

This situation happens when a process tries to create a directory within an
automount and a second process also tries to create the same directory
between the lookup and the mkdir.  Since the first process has dropped the
mutex for the daemon callback, the second process takes it during
revalidate leading to deadlock between the autofs daemon and the second
process when the daemon tries to create the mount point directory.

After spending quite a bit of time trying to resolve this on more than one
occassion, using rather complex and ulgy approaches, it turns out that just
delaying the hashing of the dentry until the create operation works fine.

uml: fix previous request size limit fix

The previous patch which limited the number of sectors in a single request
to a COWed device was correct in concept, but the limit was implemented in
the wrong place.

By putting it in ubd_add, it covered the cases where the COWing was
specified on the command line.  However, when the command line only has the
COW file specified, the fact that it's a COW file isn't known until it's
opened, so the limit is missed in these cases.

This patch moves the sector limit from ubd_add to ubd_open_dev.

signalfd: make it group-wide, fix posix-timers scheduling

With this patch any thread can dequeue its own private signals via signalfd,
even if it was created by another sub-thread.

To do so, we pass "current" to dequeue_signal() if the caller is from the same
thread group. This also fixes the scheduling of posix timers broken by the
previous patch.

If the caller doesn't belong to this thread group, we can't handle __SI_TIMER
case properly anyway. Perhaps we should forbid the cross-process signalfd usage
and convert ctx->tsk to ctx->sighand.

12 years agosynchronous lumpy reclaim: wait for page writeback when directly reclaiming contiguou...
Andy Whitcroft [Wed, 22 Aug 2007 21:01:26 +0000]
synchronous lumpy reclaim: wait for page writeback when directly reclaiming contiguous areas

Lumpy reclaim works by selecting a lead page from the LRU list and then
selecting pages for reclaim from the order-aligned area of pages.  In the
situation were all pages in that region are inactive and not referenced by any
process over time, it works well.

In the situation where there is even light load on the system, the pages may
not free quickly.  Out of a area of 1024 pages, maybe only 950 of them are
freed when the allocation attempt occurs because lumpy reclaim returned early.
 This patch alters the behaviour of direct reclaim for large contiguous
blocks.

The first attempt to call shrink_page_list() is asynchronous but if it fails,
the pages are submitted a second time and the calling process waits for the IO
to complete.  This may stall allocators waiting for contiguous memory but that
should be expected behaviour for high-order users.  It is preferable behaviour
to potentially queueing unnecessary areas for IO.  Note that kswapd will not
stall in this fashion.

12 years agosynchronous lumpy reclaim: ensure we count pages transitioning inactive via clear_act...
Andy Whitcroft [Wed, 22 Aug 2007 21:01:25 +0000]
synchronous lumpy reclaim: ensure we count pages transitioning inactive via clear_active_flags

As pointed out by Mel when reclaim is applied at higher orders a significant
amount of IO may be started.  As this takes finite time to drain reclaim will
consider more areas than ultimatly needed to satisfy the request.  This leads
to more reclaim than strictly required and reduced success rates.

I was able to confirm Mel's test results on systems locally.  These show that
even under light load the success rates drop off far more than expected.
Testing with a modified version of his patch (which follows) I was able to
allocate almost all of ZONE_MOVABLE with a near idle system.  I ran 5 test
passes sequentially following system boot (the system has 29 hugepages in
ZONE_MOVABLE):

  2.6.23-rc1              11  8  6  7  7
  sync_lumpy              28 28 29 29 26

These show that although hugely better than the near 0% success normally
expected we can only allocate about a 1/4 of the zone.  Using synchronous
reclaim for these allocations we get close to 100% as expected.

I have also run our standard high order tests and these show no regressions in
allocation success rates at rest, and some significant improvements under
load.

This patch:

We are transitioning pages from active to inactive in clear_active_flags,
those need counting as PGDEACTIVATE vm events.

serial: don't optimise away baud rate changes when BOTHER is used

The uart_set_termios() function will bail out early without bothering to
touch the hardware, if it decides that nothing "relevant" has changed.
Unfortunately, its idea of "relevant" doesn't include c_[io]speed.  So if
the baud rate bits are BOTHER and you just change the speed, the change
gets optimised away.

This patch makes it ignore the old Bfoo bits in c_cflag and just check
whether c_ispeed and c_ospeed have changed.  Those integers are always set
appropriately for us by set_termios().

kernel BUG at /home/apw/git/linux-2.6/mm/page_alloc.c:456!
[...]

This occurs because the section to node id mapping is not being
setup correctly during init under SPARSEMEM_STATIC, leading to an
attempt to free pages from all nodes into the zones on node 0.

When the zone_table[] was removed in the following commit, a new
section to node mapping table was introduced:

    commit 89689ae7f95995723fbcd5c116c47933a3bb8b13
    [PATCH] Get rid of zone_table[]

That conversion inadvertantly only initialised the node mapping in
SPARSEMEM_EXTREME.  Ensure we initialise the node mapping in
SPARSEMEM_STATIC.

12 years agoeCryptfs: fix lookup error for special files
Ryusuke Konishi [Wed, 22 Aug 2007 21:01:02 +0000]
eCryptfs: fix lookup error for special files

When ecryptfs_lookup() is called against special files, eCryptfs generates
the following errors because it tries to treat them like regular eCryptfs
files.

Error opening lower file for lower_dentry [0xffff810233a6f150], lower_mnt [0xffff810235bb4c80], and flags [0x8000]
Error opening lower_file to read header region
Error attempting to read the [user.ecryptfs] xattr from the lower file; return value = [-95]
Valid metadata not found in header region or xattr region; treating file as unencrypted

For instance, the problem can be reproduced by the steps below.

  # mkdir /root/crypt /mnt/crypt
  # mount -t ecryptfs /root/crypt /mnt/crypt
  # mknod /mnt/crypt/c0 c 0 0
  # umount /mnt/crypt
  # mount -t ecryptfs /root/crypt /mnt/crypt
  # ls -l /mnt/crypt

This patch fixes it by adding a check similar to directories and
symlinks.

[S390] kprobes: fix instruction length calculation

Placing a kprobe on "bc" instruction (s390/s390x) can cause an oops.
The instruction length is encoded into the first two bits of the s390
instruction. Kprobe is incorrectly computing the instruction length.
The instruction length is used for determining what type of "fix-up" is
needed for conditional branch instruction. The problem can bee seen by
placing a kprobe on a "bc" instruction that will not branch. The
results is that Kprobe incorrectly computes the new instruction
pointer (psw.addr) after single stepping the instruction. The problem
is corrected with this patch.

[S390] hypfs: inode corruption due to missing locking

hypfs removes the whole hypfs directory tree and creates a new one, when a
process triggers an update by writing to the "update" attribute. When removing
and creating files, it is necessary to lock the inode of the parent directory
where the files live. Currently hypfs does not lock the parent inode, which
can lead to inode corruption. This patch:
 * Introduces correct locking
 * Fixes i_nlink reference counting for inodes, when creating directories
 * Adds info printk, when hypfs filesystem has been mounted

12 years agodio: zero struct dio with kzalloc instead of manually
Zach Brown [Tue, 21 Aug 2007 00:12:01 +0000]
dio: zero struct dio with kzalloc instead of manually

This patch uses kzalloc to zero all of struct dio rather than manually
trying to track which fields we rely on being zero.  It passed aio+dio
stress testing and some bug regression testing on ext3.

This patch was introduced by Linus in the conversation that lead up to
Badari's minimal fix to manually zero .map_bh.b_state in commit:

  6a648fa72161d1f6468dabd96c5d3c0db04f598a

It makes the code a bit smaller.  Maybe a couple fewer cachelines to
load, if we're lucky:

   text    data     bss     dec     hex filename
3285925  568506 1304616 5159047  4eb887 vmlinux
3285797  568506 1304616 5158919  4eb807 vmlinux.patched

I was unable to measure a stable difference in the number of cpu cycles
spent in blockdev_direct_IO() when pushing aio+dio 256K reads at
~340MB/s.

So the resulting intent of the patch isn't a performance gain but to
avoid exposing ourselves to the risk of finding another field like
.map_bh.b_state where we rely on zeroing but don't enforce it in the
code.

12 years agoide-pmac: fix drive->init_speed reporting

ide-pmac: fix drive->init_speed reporting

pmac_ide_tune_chipset() don't set drive->init_speed.

Fix it by setting drive->{current,init}_speed in pmac_ide_do_setfeature()
and clean up pmac_ide_{tune_chipset,mdma_enable,udma_enable}().

12 years agoide: config_drive_for_dma() fixes
Bartlomiej Zolnierkiewicz [Mon, 20 Aug 2007 20:42:55 +0000]
ide: config_drive_for_dma() fixes

* Add DMA blacklist checking (->ide_dma_on check probably can go now).

* Add ->atapi_dma flag checking and remove no longer needed
  ns87415_ide_dma_check() from ns87415 host driver.

* Remove now needless __ide_dma_check() wrapper and symbol export.

* Check drive->autodma instead of hwif->autodma (there should be no changes in
  behavior as all users of config_drive_for_dma() set both ->autodma flags).
