8 years agobitmap, irq: add smp_affinity_list interface to /proc/irq
Mike Travis [Wed, 25 May 2011 00:13:12 +0000]
bitmap, irq: add smp_affinity_list interface to /proc/irq

Manually adjusting the smp_affinity for IRQ's becomes unwieldy when the
cpu count is large.

Setting smp affinity to cpus 256 to 263 would be:

echo 000000ff,00000000,00000000,00000000,00000000,00000000,00000000,00000000 > smp_affinity

instead of:

echo 256-263 > smp_affinity_list

Think about what it looks like for cpus around say, 4088 to 4095.

We already have many alternate "list" interfaces:

/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpuX/indexY/shared_cpu_list
/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpuX/topology/thread_siblings_list
/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpuX/topology/core_siblings_list
/sys/devices/system/node/nodeX/cpulist
/sys/devices/pci***/***/local_cpulist

Add a companion interface, smp_affinity_list to use cpu lists instead of
cpu maps.  This conforms to other companion interfaces where both a map
and a list interface exists.

This required adding a bitmap_parselist_user() function in a manner
similar to the bitmap_parse_user() function.

8 years agox86: remove 32-bit versions of readq()/writeq()
Roland Dreier [Wed, 25 May 2011 00:13:09 +0000]
x86: remove 32-bit versions of readq()/writeq()

The presense of a writeq() implementation on 32-bit x86 that splits the
64-bit write into two 32-bit writes turns out to break the mpt2sas driver
(and in general is risky for drivers as was discussed in
<http://lkml.kernel.org/r/adaab6c1h7c.fsf@cisco.com>).  To fix this,
revert 2c5643b1c5c7 ("x86: provide readq()/writeq() on 32-bit too") and
follow-on cleanups.

This unfortunately leads to pushing non-atomic definitions of readq() and
write() to various x86-only drivers that in the meantime started using the
definitions in the x86 version of <asm/io.h>.  However as discussed
exhaustively, this is actually the right thing to do, because the right
way to split a 64-bit transaction is hardware dependent and therefore
belongs in the hardware driver (eg mpt2sas needs a spinlock to make sure
no other accesses occur in between the two halves of the access).

Build tested on 32- and 64-bit x86 allmodconfig.

8 years agoulimit: raise default hard ulimit on number of files to 4096
Tim Gardner [Wed, 25 May 2011 00:13:05 +0000]
ulimit: raise default hard ulimit on number of files to 4096

Apps are increasingly using more than 1024 file descriptors.  See
discussion in several distro bug trackers, e.g.  BugLink:
http://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/663090
https://issues.rpath.com/browse/RPL-2054

You don't want to raise the default soft limit, since that might break
apps that use select(), but it's safe to raise the default hard limit;
that way, apps that know they need lots of file descriptors can raise
their soft limit without needing root, and without user intervention.

Ubuntu is doing this with a kernel change because they have a policy of
not changing kernel defaults in userland.

While 4096 might not be enough for *all* apps, it seems to be plenty for
the apps I've seen lately that are unhappy with 1024.

First, some drivers' mmap() function depends on vma->vm_end - vma->start

Second munmap() may return -EINVAL[split file] error in cases when end is

8 years agomm: batch activate_page() to reduce lock contention
Shaohua Li [Wed, 25 May 2011 00:12:55 +0000]
mm: batch activate_page() to reduce lock contention

The zone->lru_lock is heavily contented in workload where activate_page()
is frequently used.  We could do batch activate_page() to reduce the lock
contention.  The batched pages will be added into zone list when the pool
is full or page reclaim is trying to drain them.

For example, in a 4 socket 64 CPU system, create a sparse file and 64
processes, processes shared map to the file.  Each process read access the
whole file and then exit.  The process exit will do unmap_vmas() and cause
a lot of activate_page() call.  In such workload, we saw about 58% total
time reduction with below patch.  Other workloads with a lot of
activate_page also benefits a lot too.

Andrew Morton suggested activate_page() and putback_lru_pages() should
follow the same path to active pages, but this is hard to implement (see
commit 7a608572a282a ("Revert "mm: batch activate_page() to reduce lock
contention")).  On the other hand, do we really need putback_lru_pages()
to follow the same path?  I tested several FIO/FFSB benchmark (about 20
scripts for each benchmark) in 3 machines here from 2 sockets to 4
sockets.  My test doesn't show anything significant with/without below
patch (there is slight difference but mostly some noise which we found
even without below patch before).  Below patch basically returns to the

8 years agomm/page_alloc.c: prevent unending loop in __alloc_pages_slowpath()
Andrew Barry [Wed, 25 May 2011 00:12:52 +0000]
mm/page_alloc.c: prevent unending loop in __alloc_pages_slowpath()

I believe I found a problem in __alloc_pages_slowpath, which allows a
process to get stuck endlessly looping, even when lots of memory is
available.

Running an I/O and memory intensive stress-test I see a 0-order page
allocation with __GFP_IO and __GFP_WAIT, running on a system with very
little free memory.  Right about the same time that the stress-test gets
killed by the OOM-killer, the utility trying to allocate memory gets stuck
in __alloc_pages_slowpath even though most of the systems memory was freed
by the oom-kill of the stress-test.

The utility ends up looping from the rebalance label down through the
wait_iff_congested continiously.  Because order=0,
__alloc_pages_direct_compact skips the call to get_page_from_freelist.
Because all of the reclaimable memory on the system has already been
reclaimed, __alloc_pages_direct_reclaim skips the call to
get_page_from_freelist.  Since there is no __GFP_FS flag, the block with
__alloc_pages_may_oom is skipped.  The loop hits the wait_iff_congested,
then jumps back to rebalance without ever trying to
get_page_from_freelist.  This loop repeats infinitely.

The test case is pretty pathological.  Running a mix of I/O stress-tests
that do a lot of fork() and consume all of the system memory, I can pretty
reliably hit this on 600 nodes, in about 12 hours.  32GB/node.

The noswapaccount parameter has been deprecated since 2.6.38 without any
complaints from users so we can remove it.  swapaccount=0|1 can be used
instead.

As we are removing the parameter we can also clean up swapaccount because
it doesn't have to accept an empty string anymore (to match noswapaccount)
and so we can push = into __setup macro rather than checking "=1" resp.

8 years agoproc: allocate storage for numa_maps statistics once
Stephen Wilson [Wed, 25 May 2011 00:12:49 +0000]
proc: allocate storage for numa_maps statistics once

In show_numa_map() we collect statistics into a numa_maps structure.
Since the number of NUMA nodes can be very large, this structure is not a
candidate for stack allocation.

Instead of going thru a kmalloc()+kfree() cycle each time show_numa_map()
is invoked, perform the allocation just once when /proc/pid/numa_maps is
opened.

Performing the allocation when numa_maps is opened, and thus before a
reference to the target tasks mm is taken, eliminates a potential
stalemate condition in the oom-killer as originally described by Hugh
Dickins:

  ... imagine what happens if the system is out of memory, and the mm
  we're looking at is selected for killing by the OOM killer: while
  we wait in __get_free_page for more memory, no memory is freed
  from the selected mm because it cannot reach exit_mmap while we hold
  that reference.

8 years agotmpfs: implement generic xattr support
Eric Paris [Wed, 25 May 2011 00:12:39 +0000]
tmpfs: implement generic xattr support

Implement generic xattrs for tmpfs filesystems.  The Feodra project, while
trying to replace suid apps with file capabilities, realized that tmpfs,
which is used on the build systems, does not support file capabilities and
thus cannot be used to build packages which use file capabilities.  Xattrs
are also needed for overlayfs.

The xattr interface is a bit odd.  If a filesystem does not implement any
{get,set,list}xattr functions the VFS will call into some random LSM hooks
and the running LSM can then implement some method for handling xattrs.
SELinux for example provides a method to support security.selinux but no
other security.* xattrs.

As it stands today when one enables CONFIG_TMPFS_POSIX_ACL tmpfs will have
xattr handler routines specifically to handle acls.  Because of this tmpfs
would loose the VFS/LSM helpers to support the running LSM.  To make up
for that tmpfs had stub functions that did nothing but call into the LSM
hooks which implement the helpers.

This new patch does not use the LSM fallback functions and instead just
implements a native get/set/list xattr feature for the full security.* and
trusted.* namespace like a normal filesystem.  This means that tmpfs can
now support both security.selinux and security.capability, which was not
previously possible.

The basic implementation is that I attach a:

struct shmem_xattr {
struct list_head list; /* anchored by shmem_inode_info->xattr_list */
char *name;
size_t size;
char value[0];
};

Into the struct shmem_inode_info for each xattr that is set.  This
implementation could easily support the user.* namespace as well, except
some care needs to be taken to prevent large amounts of unswappable memory
being allocated for unprivileged users.

8 years agomm: delete non-atomic mm counter implementation
Matt Fleming [Wed, 25 May 2011 00:12:36 +0000]
mm: delete non-atomic mm counter implementation

The problem with having two different types of counters is that developers
adding new code need to keep in mind whether it's safe to use both the
atomic and non-atomic implementations.  For example, when adding new
callers of the *_mm_counter() functions a developer needs to ensure that
those paths are always executed with page_table_lock held, in case we're
using the non-atomic implementation of mm counters.

Hugh Dickins introduced the atomic mm counters in commit f412ac08c986
("[PATCH] mm: fix rss and mmlist locking").  When asked why he left the
non-atomic counters around he said,

  | The only reason was to avoid adding costly atomic operations into a
  | configuration that had no need for them there: the page_table_lock
  | sufficed.
  |
  | Certainly it would be simpler just to delete the non-atomic variant.
  |
  | And I think it's fair to say that any configuration on which we're
  | measuring performance to that degree (rather than "does it boot fast?"
  | type measurements), would already be going the split ptlocks route.

Removing the non-atomic counters eases the maintenance burden because
developers no longer have to mindful of the two implementations when using
*_mm_counter().

Note that all architectures provide a means of atomically updating
atomic_long_t variables, even if they have to revert to the generic
spinlock implementation because they don't support 64-bit atomic
instructions (see lib/atomic64.c).

8 years agoreadahead: trigger mmap sequential readahead on PG_readahead
Wu Fengguang [Wed, 25 May 2011 00:12:30 +0000]
readahead: trigger mmap sequential readahead on PG_readahead

Previously the mmap sequential readahead is triggered by updating
ra->prev_pos on each page fault and compare it with current page offset.

It costs dirtying the cache line on each _minor_ page fault.  So remove
the ra->prev_pos recording, and instead tag PG_readahead to trigger the
possible sequential readahead.  It's not only more simple, but also will
work more reliably and reduce cache line bouncing on concurrent page
faults on shared struct file.

In the mosbench exim benchmark which does multi-threaded page faults on
shared struct file, the ra->mmap_miss and ra->prev_pos updates are found
to cause excessive cache line bouncing on tmpfs, which actually disabled
readahead totally (shmem_backing_dev_info.ra_pages == 0).

So remove the ra->prev_pos recording, and instead tag PG_readahead to
trigger the possible sequential readahead.  It's not only more simple, but
also will work more reliably on concurrent reads on shared struct file.

8 years agomm: check if any page in a pageblock is reserved before marking it MIGRATE_RESERVE
Arve Hjønnevåg [Wed, 25 May 2011 00:12:24 +0000]
mm: check if any page in a pageblock is reserved before marking it MIGRATE_RESERVE

This fixes a problem where the first pageblock got marked MIGRATE_RESERVE
even though it only had a few free pages.  eg, On current ARM port, The
kernel starts at offset 0x8000 to leave room for boot parameters, and the
memory is freed later.

This in turn caused no contiguous memory to be reserved and frequent
kswapd wakeups that emptied the caches to get more contiguous memory.

Unfortunatelly, ARM needs order-2 allocation for pgd (see
arm/mm/pgd.c#pgd_alloc()).  Therefore the issue is not minor nor easy
avoidable.

isolate_lru_page() must be called only with stable reference to the page,
this is what is written in the comment above it, this is reasonable.

current isolate_lru_page() users and its page extra reference sources:

 mm/huge_memory.c:
  __collapse_huge_page_isolate() - reference from pte

 mm/memcontrol.c:

  mem_cgroup_move_charge_pte_range() - reference from pte

 mm/memory-failure.c:
  soft_offline_page() - fixed, reference from get_any_page()
  delete_from_lru_cache() - reference from caller or get_page_unless_zero()
[ seems like there bug, because __memory_failure() can call
  page_action() for hpages tail, but it is ok for
  isolate_lru_page(), tail getted and not in lru]

 mm/memory_hotplug.c:
  do_migrate_range() - fixed, get_page_unless_zero()

 mm/mempolicy.c:
  migrate_page_add() - reference from pte

 mm/migrate.c:
  do_move_page_to_node_array() - reference from follow_page()

 mlock.c: - various external references

 mm/vmscan.c:
  putback_lru_page() - reference from isolate_lru_page()

It seems that all isolate_lru_page() users are ready now for this
restriction.  So, let's replace redundant get_page_unless_zero() with
get_page() and add page initial reference count check with VM_BUG_ON()

8 years agomm: print vmalloc() state after allocation failures
Dave Hansen [Wed, 25 May 2011 00:12:18 +0000]
mm: print vmalloc() state after allocation failures

I was tracking down a page allocation failure that ended up in vmalloc().
Since vmalloc() uses 0-order pages, if somebody asks for an insane amount
of memory, we'll still get a warning with "order:0" in it.  That's not
very useful.

During recovery, vmalloc() also nicely frees all of the memory that it got
up to the point of the failure.  That is wonderful, but it also quickly
hides any issues.  We have a much different sitation if vmalloc()
repeatedly fails 10GB in to:

vmalloc(100 * 1<<30);

versus repeatedly failing 4096 bytes in to a:

vmalloc(8192);

This patch will print out messages that look like this:

[   68.123503] vmalloc: allocation failure, allocated 6680576 of 13426688 bytes
[   68.124218] bash: page allocation failure: order:0, mode:0xd2
[   68.124811] Pid: 3770, comm: bash Not tainted 2.6.39-rc3-00082-g85f2e68-dirty #333
[   68.125579] Call Trace:
[   68.125853]  [<ffffffff810f6da6>] warn_alloc_failed+0x146/0x170
[   68.126464]  [<ffffffff8107e05c>] ? printk+0x6c/0x70
[   68.126791]  [<ffffffff8112b5d4>] ? alloc_pages_current+0x94/0xe0
[   68.127661]  [<ffffffff8111ed37>] __vmalloc_node_range+0x237/0x290
...

The 'order' variable is added for clarity when calling warn_alloc_failed()
to avoid having an unexplained '0' as an argument.

The 'tmp_mask' is because adding an open-coded '| __GFP_NOWARN' would take
us over 80 columns for the alloc_pages_node() call.  If we are going to
add a line, it might as well be one that makes the sucker easier to read.

As a side issue, I also noticed that ctl_ioctl() does vmalloc() based
solely on an unverified value passed in from userspace.  Granted, it's
under CAP_SYS_ADMIN, but it still frightens me a bit.

8 years agomm: break out page allocation warning code
Dave Hansen [Wed, 25 May 2011 00:12:16 +0000]
mm: break out page allocation warning code

This originally started as a simple patch to give vmalloc() some more
verbose output on failure on top of the plain page allocator messages.
Johannes suggested that it might be nicer to lead with the vmalloc() info
_before_ the page allocator messages.

But, I do think there's a lot of value in what __alloc_pages_slowpath()
does with its filtering and so forth.

This patch creates a new function which other allocators can call instead
of relying on the internal page allocator warnings.  It also gives this
function private rate-limiting which separates it from other
printk_ratelimit() users.

8 years agomm: convert mm->cpu_vm_cpumask into cpumask_var_t
KOSAKI Motohiro [Wed, 25 May 2011 00:12:15 +0000]
mm: convert mm->cpu_vm_cpumask into cpumask_var_t

cpumask_t is very big struct and cpu_vm_mask is placed wrong position.
It might lead to reduce cache hit ratio.

This patch has two change.
1) Move the place of cpumask into last of mm_struct. Because usually cpumask
   is accessed only front bits when the system has cpu-hotplug capability
2) Convert cpu_vm_mask into cpumask_var_t. It may help to reduce memory
   footprint if cpumask_size() will use nr_cpumask_bits properly in future.

In addition, this patch change the name of cpu_vm_mask with cpu_vm_mask_var.
It may help to detect out of tree cpu_vm_mask users.

This patch has no functional change.

8 years agomm: use refcounts for page_lock_anon_vma()
Peter Zijlstra [Wed, 25 May 2011 00:12:10 +0000]
mm: use refcounts for page_lock_anon_vma()

Convert page_lock_anon_vma() over to use refcounts.  This is done to
prepare for the conversion of anon_vma from spinlock to mutex.

Sadly this inceases the cost of page_lock_anon_vma() from one to two
atomics, a follow up patch addresses this, lets keep that simple for now.

mm: Remove i_mmap_lock lockbreak

Hugh says:
 "The only significant loser, I think, would be page reclaim (when
  concurrent with truncation): could spin for a long time waiting for
  the i_mmap_mutex it expects would soon be dropped? "

Counter points:
 - cpu contention makes the spin stop (need_resched())
 - zap pages should be freeing pages at a higher rate than reclaim
   ever can

I think the simplification of the truncate code is definitely worth it.

Effectively reverts: 2aa15890f3c ("mm: prevent concurrent
unmap_mapping_range() on the same inode") and takes out the code that
caused its problem.

8 years agolockdep, mutex: provide mutex_lock_nest_lock
Peter Zijlstra [Wed, 25 May 2011 00:12:03 +0000]
lockdep, mutex: provide mutex_lock_nest_lock

In order to convert i_mmap_lock to a mutex we need a mutex equivalent to
spin_lock_nest_lock(), thus provide the mutex_lock_nest_lock() annotation.

As with spin_lock_nest_lock(), mutex_lock_nest_lock() allows annotation of
the locking pattern where an outer lock serializes the acquisition order
of nested locks.  That is, if every time you lock multiple locks A, say A1
and A2 you first acquire N, the order of acquiring A1 and A2 is
irrelevant.

8 years agomm: mmu_gather rework
Peter Zijlstra [Wed, 25 May 2011 00:11:45 +0000]
mm: mmu_gather rework

Rework the existing mmu_gather infrastructure.

The direct purpose of these patches was to allow preemptible mmu_gather,
but even without that I think these patches provide an improvement to the
status quo.

The first 9 patches rework the mmu_gather infrastructure.  For review
purpose I've split them into generic and per-arch patches with the last of
those a generic cleanup.

The next patch provides generic RCU page-table freeing, and the followup
is a patch converting s390 to use this.  I've also got 4 patches from
DaveM lined up (not included in this series) that uses this to implement
gup_fast() for sparc64.

Then there is one patch that extends the generic mmu_gather batching.

After that follow the mm preemptibility patches, these make part of the mm
a lot more preemptible.  It converts i_mmap_lock and anon_vma->lock to
mutexes which together with the mmu_gather rework makes mmu_gather
preemptible as well.

Making i_mmap_lock a mutex also enables a clean-up of the truncate code.

This also allows for preemptible mmu_notifiers, something that XPMEM I
think wants.

Furthermore, it removes the new and universially detested unmap_mutex.

This patch:

Remove the first obstacle towards a fully preemptible mmu_gather.

The current scheme assumes mmu_gather is always done with preemption
disabled and uses per-cpu storage for the page batches.  Change this to
try and allocate a page for batching and in case of failure, use a small
on-stack array to make some progress.

Preemptible mmu_gather is desired in general and usable once i_mmap_lock
becomes a mutex.  Doing it before the mutex conversion saves us from
having to rework the code by moving the mmu_gather bits inside the
pte_lock.

Also avoid flushing the tlb batches from under the pte lock, this is
useful even without the i_mmap_lock conversion as it significantly reduces
pte lock hold times.

8 years agomm: make expand_downwards() symmetrical with expand_upwards()
Michal Hocko [Wed, 25 May 2011 00:11:44 +0000]
mm: make expand_downwards() symmetrical with expand_upwards()

Currently we have expand_upwards exported while expand_downwards is
accessible only via expand_stack or expand_stack_downwards.

check_stack_guard_page is a nice example of the asymmetry.  It uses
expand_stack for VM_GROWSDOWN while expand_upwards is called for
VM_GROWSUP case.

Let's clean this up by exporting both functions and make those names
consistent.  Let's use expand_{upwards,downwards} because expanding
doesn't always involve stack manipulation (an example is
ia64_do_page_fault which uses expand_upwards for registers backing store
expansion).  expand_downwards has to be defined for both
CONFIG_STACK_GROWS{UP,DOWN} because get_arg_page calls the downwards
version in the early process initialization phase for growsup
configuration.

8 years agomm/vmalloc: remove guard page from between vmap blocks
Johannes Weiner [Wed, 25 May 2011 00:11:43 +0000]
mm/vmalloc: remove guard page from between vmap blocks

The vmap allocator is used to, among other things, allocate per-cpu vmap
blocks, where each vmap block is naturally aligned to its own size.
Obviously, leaving a guard page after each vmap area forbids packing vmap
blocks efficiently and can make the kernel run out of possible vmap blocks
long before overall vmap space is exhausted.

The new interface to map a user-supplied page array into linear vmalloc
space (vm_map_ram) insists on allocating from a vmap block (instead of
falling back to a custom area) when the area size is below a certain
threshold.  With heavy users of this interface (e.g.  XFS) and limited
vmalloc space on 32-bit, vmap block exhaustion is a real problem.

Remove the guard page from the core vmap allocator.  vmalloc and the old
vmap interface enforce a guard page on their own at a higher level.

Note that without this patch, we had accidental guard pages after those
vm_map_ram areas that happened to be at the end of a vmap block, but not
between every area.  This patch removes this accidental guard page only.

If we want guard pages after every vm_map_ram area, this should be done
separately.  And just like with vmalloc and the old interface on a
different level, not in the core allocator.

Mel pointed out: "If necessary, the guard page could be reintroduced as a
debugging-only option (CONFIG_DEBUG_PAGEALLOC?).  Otherwise it seems
reasonable."

include/linux/gfp.h: work around apparent sparse confusion

        include/linux/gfp.h:254:17: error: bad constant expression
        include/linux/gfp.h:254:17: error: cannot size expression

which is a line in gfp_zone():

        BUILD_BUG_ON((GFP_ZONE_BAD >> bit) & 1);

That's really unfortunate, because it ends up hiding all of the other
legitimate sparse messages like this:
        mm/page_alloc.c:5315:59: warning: incorrect type in argument 1 (different base types)

        mm/page_alloc.c:5315:59:    got restricted gfp_t [usertype] <noident>

Having sparse be able to catch these very oopsable bugs is a lot more
important than keeping a BUILD_BUG_ON().  Kill the BUILD_BUG_ON().

8 years agooom: replace PF_OOM_ORIGIN with toggling oom_score_adj
David Rientjes [Wed, 25 May 2011 00:11:40 +0000]
oom: replace PF_OOM_ORIGIN with toggling oom_score_adj

There's a kernel-wide shortage of per-process flags, so it's always
helpful to trim one when possible without incurring a significant penalty.
 It's even more important when you're planning on adding a per- process
flag yourself, which I plan to do shortly for transparent hugepages.

PF_OOM_ORIGIN is used by ksm and swapoff to prefer current since it has a
tendency to allocate large amounts of memory and should be preferred for
killing over other tasks.  We'd rather immediately kill the task making
the errant syscall rather than penalizing an innocent task.

This patch removes PF_OOM_ORIGIN since its behavior is equivalent to
setting the process's oom_score_adj to OOM_SCORE_ADJ_MAX.

The process's old oom_score_adj is stored and then set to
OOM_SCORE_ADJ_MAX during the time it used to have PF_OOM_ORIGIN.  The old
value is then reinstated when the process should no longer be considered a
high priority for oom killing.

8 years agox86,mm: make pagefault killable
KOSAKI Motohiro [Wed, 25 May 2011 00:11:30 +0000]
x86,mm: make pagefault killable

When an oom killing occurs, almost all processes are getting stuck at the
following two points.

1) __alloc_pages_nodemask
2) __lock_page_or_retry

1) is not very problematic because TIF_MEMDIE leads to an allocation
failure and getting out from page allocator.

2) is more problematic.  In an OOM situation, zones typically don't have
page cache at all and memory starvation might lead to greatly reduced IO
performance.  When a fork bomb occurs, TIF_MEMDIE tasks don't die quickly,
meaning that a fork bomb may create new process quickly rather than the
oom-killer killing it.  Then, the system may become livelocked.

This patch makes the pagefault interruptible by SIGKILL.

strictly and does a linear search on the tree.  But it doesn't applied to
the list (i.e.  the list could be constructed in a different order than
the tree so that we can't use the list when finding the first vma in that
order).

Since inserting/sorting a vma in the tree and link is done at the same
time, we can easily construct both of them in the same order.  And linear
searching on the tree could be more costly than doing it on the list, it
can be converted to use the list.

Also, after the commit 297c5eee3724 ("mm: make the vma list be doubly
linked") made the list be doubly linked, there were a couple of code need
to be fixed to construct the list properly.

Patch 1/6 is a preparation.  It maintains the list sorted same as the tree
and construct doubly-linked list properly.  Patch 2/6 is a simple
optimization for the vma deletion.  Patch 3/6 and 4/6 convert tree
traversal to list traversal and the rest are simple fixes and cleanups.

This patch:

@vma added into @mm should be sorted by start addr, end addr and VMA
struct addr in that order because we may get identical VMAs in the @mm.
However this was true only for the rbtree, not for the list.

This patch fixes this by remembering 'rb_prev' during the tree traversal
like find_vma_prepare() does and linking the @vma via __vma_link_list().
After this patch, we can iterate the whole VMAs in correct order simply by
using @mm->mmap list.

8 years agommap: avoid merging cloned VMAs

mmap: avoid merging cloned VMAs

Avoid merging a VMA with another VMA which is cloned from the parent process.

The cloned VMA shares the anon_vma lock with the parent process's VMA.  If
we do the merge, more vmas (even the new range is only for current
process) use the perent process's anon_vma lock.  This introduces
scalability issues.  find_mergeable_anon_vma() already considers this
case.

8 years agommap: avoid unnecessary anon_vma lock
Shaohua Li [Wed, 25 May 2011 00:11:19 +0000]
mmap: avoid unnecessary anon_vma lock

If we only change vma->vm_end, we can avoid taking anon_vma lock even if
'insert' isn't NULL, which is the case of split_vma.

As I understand it, we need the lock before because rmap must get the
'insert' VMA when we adjust old VMA's vm_end (the 'insert' VMA is linked
to anon_vma list in __insert_vm_struct before).

But now this isn't true any more.  The 'insert' VMA is already linked to
anon_vma list in __split_vma(with anon_vma_clone()) instead of
__insert_vm_struct.  There is no race rmap can't get required VMAs.  So
the anon_vma lock is unnecessary, and this can reduce one locking in brk
case and improve scalability.
