[PATCH] cpuset memory spread page cache implementation and hooks

Change the page cache allocation calls to support cpuset memory spreading.

See the previous patch, cpuset_mem_spread, for an explanation of cpuset memory
spreading.

On systems without cpusets configured in the kernel, this is no change.

On systems with cpusets configured in the kernel, but the "memory_spread"
cpuset option not enabled for the current tasks cpuset, this adds a call to a
cpuset routine and failed bit test of the processor state flag PF_SPREAD_PAGE.

On tasks in cpusets with "memory_spread" enabled, this adds a call to a cpuset
routine that computes which of the tasks mems_allowed nodes should be
preferred for this allocation.

If memory spreading applies to a particular allocation, then any other NUMA
mempolicy does not apply.

13 years ago[PATCH] cpuset memory spread basic implementation
Paul Jackson [Fri, 24 Mar 2006 11:16:03 +0000]
[PATCH] cpuset memory spread basic implementation

This patch provides the implementation and cpuset interface for an alternative
memory allocation policy that can be applied to certain kinds of memory
allocations, such as the page cache (file system buffers) and some slab caches
(such as inode caches).

The policy is called "memory spreading." If enabled, it spreads out these
kinds of memory allocations over all the nodes allowed to a task, instead of
preferring to place them on the node where the task is executing.

All other kinds of allocations, including anonymous pages for a tasks stack
and data regions, are not affected by this policy choice, and continue to be
allocated preferring the node local to execution, as modified by the NUMA
mempolicy.

There are two boolean flag files per cpuset that control where the kernel
allocates pages for the file system buffers and related in kernel data
structures.  They are called 'memory_spread_page' and 'memory_spread_slab'.

If the per-cpuset boolean flag file 'memory_spread_page' is set, then the
kernel will spread the file system buffers (page cache) evenly over all the
nodes that the faulting task is allowed to use, instead of preferring to put
those pages on the node where the task is running.

If the per-cpuset boolean flag file 'memory_spread_slab' is set, then the
kernel will spread some file system related slab caches, such as for inodes
and dentries evenly over all the nodes that the faulting task is allowed to
use, instead of preferring to put those pages on the node where the task is
running.

The implementation is simple.  Setting the cpuset flags 'memory_spread_page'
or 'memory_spread_cache' turns on the per-process flags PF_SPREAD_PAGE or
PF_SPREAD_SLAB, respectively, for each task that is in the cpuset or
subsequently joins that cpuset.  In subsequent patches, the page allocation
calls for the affected page cache and slab caches are modified to perform an
inline check for these flags, and if set, a call to a new routine
cpuset_mem_spread_node() returns the node to prefer for the allocation.

The cpuset_mem_spread_node() routine is also simple.  It uses the value of a
per-task rotor cpuset_mem_spread_rotor to select the next node in the current
tasks mems_allowed to prefer for the allocation.

This policy can provide substantial improvements for jobs that need to place
thread local data on the corresponding node, but that need to access large
file system data sets that need to be spread across the several nodes in the
jobs cpuset in order to fit.  Without this patch, especially for jobs that
might have one thread reading in the data set, the memory allocation across
the nodes in the jobs cpuset can become very uneven.

A couple of Copyright year ranges are updated as well.  And a couple of email
addresses that can be found in the MAINTAINERS file are removed.

[PATCH] tvec_bases too large for per-cpu data

With internal Xen-enabled kernels we see the kernel's static per-cpu data
area exceed the limit of 32k on x86-64, and even native x86-64 kernels get
fairly close to that limit.  I generally question whether it is reasonable
to have data structures several kb in size allocated as per-cpu data when
the space there is rather limited.

The biggest arch-independent consumer is tvec_bases (over 4k on 32-bit
archs, over 8k on 64-bit ones), which now gets converted to use dynamically
allocated memory instead.

Paul Jackson [Fri, 24 Mar 2006 11:15:44 +0000]
[PATCH] bitmap: region cleanup

Paul Mundt <lethal@linux-sh.org> says:

This patch set implements a number of patches to clean up and restructure the
bitmap region code, in addition to extending the interface to support
multiword spanning allocations.

The current implementation (before this patch set) is limited by only being
able to allocate pages <= BITS_PER_LONG, as noted by the strategically
positioned BUG_ON() at lib/bitmap.c:752:

        /* We don't do regions of pages > BITS_PER_LONG.  The
 * algorithm would be a simple look for multiple zeros in the
 * array, but there's no driver today that needs this.  If you
 * trip this BUG(), you get to code it... */
        BUG_ON(pages > BITS_PER_LONG);

As I seem to have been the first person to trigger this, the result ends up
being the following patch set with the help of Paul Jackson.

The final patch in the series eliminates quite a bit of code duplication, so
the bitmap code size ends up being smaller than the current implementation as
an added bonus.

After these are applied, it should already be possible to do multiword
allocations with dma_alloc_coherent() out of ranges established by
dma_declare_coherent_memory() on x86 without having to change any of the code,
and the SH store queue API will follow up on this as the other user that needs
support for this.

This patch:

Some code cleanup on the lib/bitmap.c bitmap_*_region() routines:

 * spacing
 * variable names
 * comments

Has no change to code function.

[PATCH] s390: tape operation abortion leads to panic

When a request is aborted because of a signal, we currently stop the request
via csh, but we do not wait for the interrupt of csh in any case.  We free the
request structure and therefore when the interrupt for the csh operation is
presented, the request object is no longer valid and an invalid callback
pointer is used.

To fix this wait until the interrupt for csh arrives and until
wait_event_interruptible() does not return -ERESTARTSYS.

[PATCH] x86_64: {set,clear,test}_bit() related cleanup and pci_mmcfg_init() fix

While working on these patch set, I found several possible cleanup on x86-64
and ia64.

akpm: I stole this from Andi's queue.

Not only does it clean up bitops.  It also unrelatedly changes the prototype
of pci_mmcfg_init() and removes its arch_initcall().  It seems that the wrong
two patches got joined together, but this is the one which has been tested.

This patch fixes the current x86_64 build error (the pci_mmcfg_init()
declaration in arch/i386/pci/pci.h disagrees with the definition in
arch/x86_64/pci/mmconfig.c)

This also means that x86_64's pci_mmcfg_init() gets called in the same (new)
manner as x86's: from arch/i386/pci/init.c:pci_access_init(), rather than via
initcall.

The bitops cleanups came along for free.

All this worked OK in -mm testing (since 2.6.16-rc4-mm1) because x86_64 was
tested with both patches applied.

Theodore Ts'o [Fri, 24 Mar 2006 11:15:10 +0000]
[PATCH] vfs: MS_VERBOSE should be MS_SILENT

The meaning of MS_VERBOSE is backwards; if the bit is set, it really means,
"don't be verbose".  This is confusing and counter-intuitive.

In addition, there is also no way to set the MS_VERBOSE flag in the
mount(8) program in util-linux, but interesting, it does define options
which would do the right thing if MS_SILENT were defined, which
unfortunately we do not:

#ifdef MS_SILENT
  { "quiet",    0, 0, MS_SILENT    },   /* be quiet  */
  { "loud",     0, 1, MS_SILENT    },   /* print out messages. */
#endif

So the obvious fix is to deprecate the use of MS_VERBOSE and replace it
with MS_SILENT.

The w1 netlink socket is created by a hardware specific driver calling
w1_add_master_device, so there is no point in including a module alias

are no longer needed.  shpchprm_nonacpi.c and pciehprm_nonacpi.c are

macro.

not be detected. For example, if the system has the ACPI namespace
like below, hotplug slots woule not be detected.

Device (PCI0) { /* Root bridge */

Device (P2PA) { /* PCI-to-PCI bridge */

Several drivers are starting to grow options to disable MSI.  However,

When hotplug slot is under the host bridge,
DEVICE_ACPI_HANDLE(&bus->self->dev) fails since '&bus->self' was not set.
This patch fixes it.

Kristen Accardi [Fri, 24 Feb 2006 01:56:03 +0000]
[PATCH] acpiphp: add dock event handling

These patches add generic dock event handling to acpiphp.  If there are
pci devices that need to be inserted/removed after the dock event, the
event notification will be handed down to the normal pci hotplug event
handler in acpiphp so that new bridges/devices can be enumerated.

Because some dock stations do not have pci bridges or pci devices that
need to be inserted after a dock, acpiphp will remain loaded to handle
dock events even if no hotpluggable pci slots are discovered.

You probably need to have the pci=assign-busses kernel parameter enabled
to use these patches, and you may not allow ibm_acpi to handle docking
notifications and use this patch.

This patch incorporates feedback provided by many.

Bernhard Kaindl [Sat, 18 Feb 2006 09:36:55 +0000]
[PATCH] PCI: PCI/Cardbus cards hidden, needs pci=assign-busses to fix

"In some cases, especially on modern laptops with a lot of PCI and cardbus
bridges, we're unable to assign correct secondary/subordinate bus numbers
to all cardbus bridges due to BIOS limitations unless we are using
"pci=assign-busses" boot option." -- Ivan Kokshaysky (from a patch comment)

Without it, Cardbus cards inserted are never seen by PCI because the parent
PCI-PCI Bridge of the Cardbus bridge will not pass and translate Type 1 PCI
configuration cycles correctly and the system will fail to find and
initialise the PCI devices in the system.

Reference: PCI-PCI Bridges: PCI Configuration Cycles and PCI Bus Numbering:
http://www.science.unitn.it/~fiorella/guidelinux/tlk/node72.html

The reason for this is that:
 ``All PCI busses located behind a PCI-PCI bridge must reside between the
secondary bus number and the subordinate bus number (inclusive).''

"pci=assign-busses" makes pcibios_assign_all_busses return 1 and this
turns on PCI renumbering during PCI probing.

Alan suggested to use DMI automatically set assign-busses on problem systems.

The only question for me was where to put it.  I put it directly before
scanning PCI bus into pcibios_scan_root() because it's called from legacy,
acpi and numa and so it can be one place for all systems and configurations
which may need it.

AMD64 Laptops are also affected and fixed by assign-busses, and the code is
also incuded from arch/x86_64/pci/ that place will also work for x86_64
kernels, I only ifdef'-ed the x86-only Laptop in this example.

Affected and known or assumed to be fixed with it are (found by googling):

* ASUS Z71V and L3s
* Samsung X20
* Compaq R3140us and all Compaq R3000 series laptops with TI1620 Controller,
  also Compaq R4000 series (from a kernel.org bugreport)
* HP zv5000z (AMD64 3700+, known that fixup_parent_subordinate_busnr fixes it)
* HP zv5200z
* IBM ThinkPad 240
* An IBM ThinkPad (1.8 GHz Pentium M) debugged by Pavel Machek
  gives the correspondig message which detects the possible problem.
* MSI S260 / Medion SIM 2100 MD 95600

The patch also expands the "try pci=assign-busses" warning so testers will
help us to update the DMI table.

[PATCH] PCI: fix problems with MSI-X on ia64

Use "unsigned long" when dealing with PCI resources.
The BAR Indicator Register (BIR) can be a 64-bit value
or the resource could be a 64-bit host physical address.

Enables ib_mthca and cciss drivers to use MSI-X on ia64 HW.
Problem showed up now because of new system firmware on one platform.
Symptom will either be memory corruption or MCA.

Second part of this patch deals with "useless" code.
We walk through the steps to find the phys_addr and then
don't use the result. I suspect the intent was to zero
out the respective MSI-X entry but I'm not sure at the moment.
Delete the code inside the #if 0/#endif if it's really
not needed.

Yes. However, it's pretty clear that the e820 entries are there for a
reason. Probably they are a hack by the BIOS maintainers to keep Windows
from stomping/moving that region, exactly because they want to keep the
bridge where it is (or, it's actually for the BIOS itself - the BIOS
tables are a horrid mess, and BIOS engineers are pretty hacky people:
they'll add random entries to make their own broken algorithms do the
"right thing").

I think we could (and probably should) solve this another way: consider
the ACPI "reserved regions" from the e820 map exactly the same way that we
do other ACPI hints - they should restrict _new_ allocations, but not
impact stuff we figure out on our own.

Basically, right now we assign _unassigned_ resources at "fs_initcall"
time. If we were to add in the e820 "reserved region" stuff before that
(but after we've done PCI discovery), we'd probably do the right thing.

Right now we do the e820 reserved regions very early indeed: we call
"register_memory()" from setup_arch(). We could move at least part of it
(the part that registers the resources) down a bit.

Here's a test-patch. I'm not saying we should absolutely do this, but it
might be interesting to try...
