8 years agosparc: remove dma64_addr_t usage
FUJITA Tomonori [Wed, 27 Oct 2010 22:34:47 +0000]
sparc: remove dma64_addr_t usage

dma64_addr_t looks pointless (at least there is no point that an
architecture has the own dma64_addr_t typedef).

dma_addr_t is set to 32 or 64 bits appropriately. You can use u64
at places where you know that 64 bit address is always necessary.

Let's use u64 instead for sparc32.

Looks like PCI654_REQUIRED_MASK or PCI64_ADR_BASE isn't used. They can
be removed?

8 years agotaskstats: use real microsecond granularity for CPU times
Michael Holzheu [Wed, 27 Oct 2010 22:34:45 +0000]
taskstats: use real microsecond granularity for CPU times

The taskstats interface uses microsecond granularity for the user and
system time values.  The conversion from cputime to the taskstats values
uses the cputime_to_msecs primitive which effectively limits the
granularity to milliseconds.  Add the cputime_to_usecs primitive for
architectures that have better, more precise CPU time values.  Remove
cputime_to_msecs primitive because there are no more users left.

8 years agodelayacct: align to 8 byte boundary on 64-bit systems
Jeff Mahoney [Wed, 27 Oct 2010 22:34:43 +0000]
delayacct: align to 8 byte boundary on 64-bit systems

prepare_reply() sets up an skb for the response.  The payload contains:

 +--------------------------------+
 | genlmsghdr - 4 bytes           |
 +--------------------------------+
 | NLA header - 4 bytes           | /* Aggregate header */

 | | struct taskstats - 328 bytes |

The start of the taskstats struct must be 8 byte aligned on IA64 (and
other systems with 8 byte alignment rules for 64-bit types) or runtime
alignment warnings will be issued.

This patch pads the pid/tgid field out to sizeof(long), which forces the
alignment of taskstats.  The getdelays userspace code is ok with this
since it assumes 32-bit pid/tgid and then honors that header's length
field.

An array is used to avoid exposing kernel memory contents to userspace in

8 years agodelay-accounting: reimplement -c for getdelays.c to report information on a target...
Mel Gorman [Wed, 27 Oct 2010 22:34:42 +0000]
delay-accounting: reimplement -c for getdelays.c to report information on a target command

Task delay-accounting was identified as one means of determining how long
a process spends in congestion_wait() without adding new statistics.  For
example, if the workload should not be doing IO, delay-accounting could
reveal how long it was spending in unexpected IO or delays.
Unfortunately, on closer examination it was clear that getdelays does not
act as documented.

Commit a3baf649 ("per-task-delay-accounting: documentation") added
Documentation/accounting/getdelays.c with a -c switch that was documented
to fork/exec a child and report statistics on it but for reasons that are
unclear to me, commit 9e06d3f9 deleted support for this switch but did not
update the documentation.  It might be an oversight or it might be because
the control flow of the program meant that accounting information would be
printed once early in the lifetime of the program making it of limited
use.

This patch reimplements -c for getdelays.c to act as documented.  Unlike
the original version, it waits until the command completes before printing
any information on it.  An example of it being used looks like

$ ./getdelays -d -c find /home/mel -name mel
print delayacct stats ON
/home/mel
/home/mel/.notes-wine/drive_c/windows/profiles/mel

8 years agosynclink_gt: fix per device locking
Paul Fulghum [Wed, 27 Oct 2010 22:34:20 +0000]
synclink_gt: fix per device locking

Fix a long standing bug with per device locking.

Each device has an associated spinlock for synchronizing access to
hardware and state information with the ISR.  A single hardware card has
one or more devices.

Bug: Non ISR code correctly acquires and releases the per device lock.
ISR incorrectly always acquires and releases the lock of the first device
on the card.

The decoupled and list based nature of the ISR and deferred processing
interaction allowed this to work in normal operation.  Exceptional events
like an application forcing hardware shutdown, reset, or reconfiguration
while active can trigger the bug.

Fixed ISR to acquire and release the per device lock.

One exception is manipulation of the GPIO card resource which is global
and effectively owned by the first device of the card.  Non-ISR access to
GPIO resource is changed to use lock of first device on card.

8 years agoipc/shm.c: add RSS and swap size information to /proc/sysvipc/shm
Helge Deller [Wed, 27 Oct 2010 22:34:16 +0000]
ipc/shm.c: add RSS and swap size information to /proc/sysvipc/shm

The kernel currently provides no functionality to analyze the RSS and swap
space usage of each individual sysvipc shared memory segment.

This patch adds this info for each existing shm segment by extending the
output of /proc/sysvipc/shm by two columns for RSS and swap.

Since shmctl(SHM_INFO) already provides a similiar calculation (it
currently sums up all RSS/swap info for all segments), I did split out a
static function which is now used by the /proc/sysvipc/shm output and
shmctl(SHM_INFO).

SAP products (esp.  the SAP Netweaver ABAP Kernel) uses lots of big shared
memory segments (we often have Linux systems with >= 16GB shm usage).
Sometimes we get customer reports about "slow" system responses and while
looking into their configurations we often find massive swapping activity
on the system.  With this patch it's now easy to see from the command line
if and which shm segments gets swapped out (and how much) and can more
easily give recommendations for system tuning.  Without the patch it's
currently not possible to do such shm analysis at all.

Also...

Add some spaces in front of the "size" field for 64bit kernels to get the
columns correct if you cat the contents of the file.  In
sysvipc_shm_proc_show() the kernel prints the size value in "SPEC_SIZE"
format, which is defined like this:

#if BITS_PER_LONG <= 32
#define SIZE_SPEC "%10lu"
#else
#define SIZE_SPEC "%21lu"
#endif

So, if the header is not adjusted, the columns are not correctly aligned.
I actually tested this on 32- and 64-bit and it seems correct now.

8 years agoexec: don't turn PF_KTHREAD off when a target command was not found
KOSAKI Motohiro [Wed, 27 Oct 2010 22:34:16 +0000]
exec: don't turn PF_KTHREAD off when a target command was not found

Presently do_execve() turns PF_KTHREAD off before search_binary_handler().
 THis has a theorical risk of PF_KTHREAD getting lost.  We don't have to
turn PF_KTHREAD off in the ENOEXEC case.

This patch moves this flag modification to after the finding of the
executable file.

This is only a theorical issue because kthreads do not call do_execve()
directly.  But fixing would be better.

8 years ago/proc/stat: fix scalability of irq sum of all cpu
KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Wed, 27 Oct 2010 22:34:15 +0000]
/proc/stat: fix scalability of irq sum of all cpu

In /proc/stat, the number of per-IRQ event is shown by making a sum each
irq's events on all cpus.  But we can make use of kstat_irqs().

kstat_irqs() do the same calculation, If !CONFIG_GENERIC_HARDIRQ,
it's not a big cost. (Both of the number of cpus and irqs are small.)

If a system is very big and CONFIG_GENERIC_HARDIRQ, it does

for_each_irq()
for_each_cpu()
- look up a radix tree
- read desc->irq_stat[cpu]
This seems not efficient. This patch adds kstat_irqs() for
CONFIG_GENRIC_HARDIRQ and change the calculation as

for_each_irq()
look up radix tree
for_each_cpu()
- read desc->irq_stat[cpu]

This reduces cost.

KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Wed, 27 Oct 2010 22:34:13 +0000]
/proc/stat: scalability of irq num per cpu

/proc/stat shows the total number of all interrupts to each cpu.  But when
the number of IRQs are very large, it take very long time and 'cat
/proc/stat' takes more than 10 secs.  This is because sum of all irq
events are counted when /proc/stat is read.  This patch adds "sum of all
irq" counter percpu and reduce read costs.

The cost of reading /proc/stat is important because it's used by major
applications as 'top', 'ps', 'w', etc....

> echo "|/root/core_pattern_pipe_test %p /usr/libexec/blah-blah-blah \
%s %c %p %u %g 11 12345678901234567890123456789012345678 %t" > \
/proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern

This is okay because the strings is less than CORENAME_MAX_SIZE.  "cat
/proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern" shows the whole string.  but after we run
core_pattern_pipe_test in man page, we found last parameter was truncated
like below:

        argc[10]=<12807486>

The root cause is core_pattern allows % specifiers, which need to be
replaced during parse time, but the replace may expand the strings to
larger than CORENAME_MAX_SIZE.  So if the last parameter is % specifiers,
the replace code is using snprintf(out_ptr, out_end - out_ptr, ...), this
will write out of corename array.

signals: move cred_guard_mutex from task_struct to signal_struct

Oleg Nesterov pointed out we have to prevent multiple-threads-inside-exec
itself and we can reuse ->cred_guard_mutex for it.  Yes, concurrent
execve() has no worth.

Let's move ->cred_guard_mutex from task_struct to signal_struct.  It
naturally prevent multiple-threads-inside-exec.

Since userspace API of ptrace syscall defines @addr and @data as void
pointers, it would be more appropriate to define them as unsigned long in
kernel.  Therefore related functions are changed also.

'unsigned long' is typically used in other places in kernel as an opaque
data type and that using this helps cleaning up a lot of warnings from

This patch extracts the core logic from mem_cgroup_update_file_mapped() as
mem_cgroup_update_file_stat() and adds a wrapper.

As a planned future update, memory cgroup has to count dirty pages to
implement dirty_ratio/limit.  And more, the number of dirty pages is
required to kick flusher thread to start writeback.  (Now, no kick.)

clearer.  Just a clean up.

8 years agomemcg: use for_each_mem_cgroup
KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Wed, 27 Oct 2010 22:33:41 +0000]
memcg: use for_each_mem_cgroup

In memory cgroup management, we sometimes have to walk through
subhierarchy of cgroup to gather informaiton, or lock something, etc.

Now, to do that, mem_cgroup_walk_tree() function is provided.  It calls
given callback function per cgroup found.  But the bad thing is that it
has to pass a fixed style function and argument, "void*" and it adds much
type casting to memcontrol.c.

To make the code clean, this patch replaces walk_tree() with

  for_each_mem_cgroup_tree(iter, root)

An iterator style call.  The good point is that iterator call doesn't have
to assume what kind of function is called under it.  A bad point is that
it may cause reference-count leak if a caller use "break" from the loop by
mistake.

I think the benefit is larger.  The modified code seems straigtforward and
easy to read because we don't have misterious callbacks and pointer cast.

8 years agomemcg: avoid lock in updating file_mapped (Was fix race in file_mapped accouting...
KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Wed, 27 Oct 2010 22:33:40 +0000]
memcg: avoid lock in updating file_mapped (Was fix race in file_mapped accouting flag management

At accounting file events per memory cgroup, we need to find memory cgroup
via page_cgroup->mem_cgroup.  Now, we use lock_page_cgroup() for guarantee
pc->mem_cgroup is not overwritten while we make use of it.

But, considering the context which page-cgroup for files are accessed,
we can use alternative light-weight mutual execusion in the most case.

At handling file-caches, the only race we have to take care of is "moving"
account, IOW, overwriting page_cgroup->mem_cgroup.  (See comment in the
patch)

Unlike charge/uncharge, "move" happens not so frequently. It happens only when
rmdir() and task-moving (with a special settings.)
This patch adds a race-checker for file-cache-status accounting v.s. account
moving. The new per-cpu-per-memcg counter MEM_CGROUP_ON_MOVE is added.
The routine for account move
  1. Increment it before start moving
  2. Call synchronize_rcu()
  3. Decrement it after the end of moving.
By this, file-status-counting routine can check it needs to call
lock_page_cgroup(). In most case, I doesn't need to call it.

Following is a perf data of a process which mmap()/munmap 32MB of file cache
in a minute.

Before patch:
    28.25%     mmap  mmap               [.] main
    22.64%     mmap  [kernel.kallsyms]  [k] page_fault
     9.96%     mmap  [kernel.kallsyms]  [k] mem_cgroup_update_file_mapped
     3.67%     mmap  [kernel.kallsyms]  [k] filemap_fault
     3.50%     mmap  [kernel.kallsyms]  [k] unmap_vmas
     2.99%     mmap  [kernel.kallsyms]  [k] __do_fault
     2.76%     mmap  [kernel.kallsyms]  [k] find_get_page

After patch:
    30.00%     mmap  mmap               [.] main
    23.78%     mmap  [kernel.kallsyms]  [k] page_fault
     5.52%     mmap  [kernel.kallsyms]  [k] mem_cgroup_update_file_mapped
     3.81%     mmap  [kernel.kallsyms]  [k] unmap_vmas
     3.26%     mmap  [kernel.kallsyms]  [k] find_get_page
     3.18%     mmap  [kernel.kallsyms]  [k] __do_fault
     3.03%     mmap  [kernel.kallsyms]  [k] filemap_fault
     2.40%     mmap  [kernel.kallsyms]  [k] handle_mm_fault
     2.40%     mmap  [kernel.kallsyms]  [k] do_page_fault

This patch reduces memcg's cost to some extent.
(mem_cgroup_update_file_mapped is called by both of map/unmap)

Note: It seems some more improvements are required..but no idea.
      maybe removing set/unset flag is required.

8 years agomemcg: fix race in file_mapped accouting flag management
KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Wed, 27 Oct 2010 22:33:39 +0000]
memcg: fix race in file_mapped accouting flag management

Presently memory cgroup accounts file-mapped by counter and flag.  counter
is working in the same way with zone_stat but FileMapped flag only exists
in memcg (for helping move_account).

This flag can be updated wrongly in a case.  Assume CPU0 and CPU1 and a
thread mapping a page on CPU0, another thread unmapping it on CPU1.

    CPU0                    CPU1
rmv rmap (mapcount 1->0)
   add rmap (mapcount 0->1)
   lock_page_cgroup()
   memcg counter+1 (some delay)
   set MAPPED FLAG.
   unlock_page_cgroup()
lock_page_cgroup()
memcg counter-1
clear MAPPED flag

In the above sequence counter is properly updated but FLAG is not.  This
means that representing a state by a flag which is maintained by counter
needs some special care.

To handle this, when clearing a flag, this patch check mapcount directly
and clear the flag only when mapcount == 0.  (if mapcount >0, someone will
make it to zero later and flag will be cleared.)

Reverse case, dec-after-inc cannot be a problem because page_table_lock()
works well for it.  (IOW, to make above sequence, 2 processes should touch
the same page at once with map/unmap.)

8 years agocgroup: make the mount options parsing more accurate
Daniel Lezcano [Wed, 27 Oct 2010 22:33:37 +0000]
cgroup: make the mount options parsing more accurate

Current behavior:
=================

(1) When we mount a cgroup, we can specify the 'all' option which
    means to enable all the cgroup subsystems.  This is the default option
    when no option is specified.

(2) If we want to mount a cgroup with a subset of the supported cgroup
    subsystems, we have to specify a subsystems name list for the mount
    option.

(3) If we specify another option like 'noprefix' or 'release_agent',
    the actual code wants the 'all' or a subsystem name option specified
    also.  Not critical but a bit not friendly as we should assume (1) in
    this case.

(4) Logically, the 'all' option is mutually exclusive with a subsystem
    name, but this is not detected.

In other words:
 succeed : mount -t cgroup -o all,freezer cgroup /cgroup
=> is it 'all' or 'freezer' ?
 fails : mount -t cgroup -o noprefix cgroup /cgroup
=> succeed if we do '-o noprefix,all'

The following patches consolidate a bit the mount options check.

New behavior:
=============

(1) untouched
(2) untouched
(3) the 'all' option will be by default when specifying other than
    a subsystem name option
(4) raises an error

In other words:
 fails   : mount -t cgroup -o all,freezer cgroup /cgroup
 succeed : mount -t cgroup -o noprefix cgroup /cgroup

For the sake of lisibility, the if ... then ... else ... if ...
indentation when parsing the options has been changed to:
if ... then
...
continue

8 years agocgroup: add clone_children control file
Daniel Lezcano [Wed, 27 Oct 2010 22:33:35 +0000]
cgroup: add clone_children control file

The ns_cgroup is a control group interacting with the namespaces.  When a
new namespace is created, a corresponding cgroup is automatically created
too.  The cgroup name is the pid of the process who did 'unshare' or the
child of 'clone'.

This cgroup is tied with the namespace because it prevents a process to
escape the control group and use the post_clone callback, so the child
cgroup inherits the values of the parent cgroup.

Unfortunately, the more we use this cgroup and the more we are facing
problems with it:

(1) when a process unshares, the cgroup name may conflict with a
    previous cgroup with the same pid, so unshare or clone return -EEXIST

(2) the cgroup creation is out of control because there may have an
    application creating several namespaces where the system will
    automatically create several cgroups in his back and let them on the
    cgroupfs (eg.  a vrf based on the network namespace).

(3) the mix of (1) and (2) force an administrator to regularly check
    and clean these cgroups.

This patchset removes the ns_cgroup by adding a new flag to the cgroup and
the cgroupfs mount option.  It enables the copy of the parent cgroup when
a child cgroup is created.  We can then safely remove the ns_cgroup as
this flag brings a compatibility.  We have now to manually create and add
the task to a cgroup, which is consistent with the cgroup framework.

This patch:

Sent as an answer to a previous thread around the ns_cgroup.

https://lists.linux-foundation.org/pipermail/containers/2009-June/018627.html

It adds a control file 'clone_children' for a cgroup.  This control file
is a boolean specifying if the child cgroup should be a clone of the
parent cgroup or not.  The default value is 'false'.

This flag makes the child cgroup to call the post_clone callback of all
the subsystem, if it is available.

At present, the cpuset is the only one which had implemented the
post_clone callback.

The option can be set at mount time by specifying the 'clone_children'
mount option.

8 years agocgroup_freezer: update_freezer_state() does incorrect state transitions
Tomasz Buchert [Wed, 27 Oct 2010 22:33:34 +0000]
cgroup_freezer: update_freezer_state() does incorrect state transitions

There are 4 state transitions possible for a freezer.  Only FREEZING ->
FROZEN transaction is done lazily.  This patch allows update_freezer_state
only to perform this transaction and renames the function to
update_if_frozen.

Moreover is_task_frozen_enough function is removed and its every occurence
is replaced with frozen().  Therefore for a group to become FROZEN every
task must be frozen.

The previous version could trigger a following bug: When cgroup is in the
process of freezing (but none of its tasks are frozen yet),
update_freezer_state() (called from freezer_read or freezer_write) would
incorrectly report that a group is 'THAWED' (because nfrozen = 0),
allowing the transaction FREEZING -> THAWED without writing anything to
'freezer.state'.  This is incorrect according to the documentation.  This
could result in a 'THAWED' cgroup with frozen tasks inside.

A code to reproduce this bug is available here:

It is possible to move a task from its cgroup even if this group is
'FREEZING'.  This results in a nasty bug - the moved task will become
frozen OUTSIDE its original cgroup and will remain in a permanent 'D'
state.

This patch allows to migrate the task only between THAWED cgroups.

This behavior was observed and easily reproduced on a single core laptop.

Since the operations are essentially memcpy_{from,to}io, new

For Sparc, fb_{read,write} macros use sbus_{read,write}, so this defines

using sbus_{read,write}b instead of {read,write}b.
