14 years ago[PATCH] x86_64: Basic reorder infrastructure
Arjan van de Ven [Sat, 25 Mar 2006 15:30:49 +0000]
[PATCH] x86_64: Basic reorder infrastructure

This patch puts the infrastructure in place to allow for a reordering of
functions based inside the vmlinux. The general idea is that it is possible
to put all "common" functions into the first 2Mb of the code, so that they
are covered by one TLB entry. This as opposed to the current situation where
a typical vmlinux covers about 3.5Mb (on x86-64) and thus 2 TLB entries.

This is done by enabling the -ffunction-sections flag in gcc, which puts
each function in its own ELF section, so that the linker can then order them
in a way defined by the linker script.

As per previous discussions, Linus said he wanted a "static" list for this,
eg a list provided by the kernel tarbal, so that most people have the same
ordering at least. A script is provided to create this list based on
readprofile(1) output. The included list is provisional, and entirely biased
on my own testbox and me running a few kernel compiles and some other
things.

I think that to get to a better list we need to invite people to submit
their own profiles, and somehow add those all up and base the final list on
that. I'm willing to do that effort if this is ends up being the prefered
approach. Such an effort probably needs to be repeated like once a year or
so to adopt to the changing nature of the kernel.

Made it a CONFIG with default n because it increases link times
dramatically.

[PATCH] x86_64: Patch to make the head.S-must-be-first-in-vmlinux order explicit

This patch puts the code from head.S in a special .bootstrap.text
section.

I'm working on a patch to reorder the functions in the kernel (I'll post
that later), but for x86-64 at least the kernel bootstrap requires that
the head.S functions are on the very first page/pages of the kernel
text.  This is understandable since the bootstrap is complex enough
already and not a problem at all, it just means they aren't allowed to
be reordered.  This patch puts these special functions into a separate
section to document this, and to guarantee this in the light of possibly
reordering the rest later.

(So this patch doesn't fix a bug per se, but makes things more robust by
making the order of these functions explicit)

14 years ago[PATCH] x86_64: to use lapic ids instead of initial apic ids
Ravikiran G Thirumalai [Sat, 25 Mar 2006 15:30:04 +0000]
[PATCH] x86_64: to use lapic ids instead of initial apic ids

phys_proc_id[] on AMD boxes is right now populated with the initial
apic id, obtained by the cpuid instruction.  But, the initial apic id
need not be the local apic id on clustered APIC systems (see comment at
x86_64/kernel/genapic_cluster.c, line 110).  On vSMPowered with AMD
CPUs the cpu_to_node will turn out to be incorrect (as apicid_to_node[] is
indexed by the initial apic id rather than the local apic id).
On vSMPowered boxes with Intel CPUs this is working correctly as
phys_proc_id[] is initialized correctly in detect_ht().

This fixes AMD boot path according to specification, to use the correct
routines for local apic id and socket ids.  We use
hard_smp_processor_id() to read the local apic id, and phys_pkg_id() to
determine socket id for phys_proc_id[]

Patch tested on Tyan multicore boxes as well as vSMPowered boxes.

[PATCH] x86_64: actively synchronize vmalloc area when registering certain callbacks

While the modular aspect of the respective i386 patch doesn't apply to
x86-64 (as the top level page directory entry is shared between modules
and the base kernel), handlers registered with register_die_notifier()
are still under similar constraints for touching ioremap()ed or
vmalloc()ed memory. The likelihood of this problem becoming visible is
of course significantly lower, as the assigned virtual addresses would
have to cross a 2**39 byte boundary. This is because the callback gets
invoked
(a) in the page fault path before the top level page table propagation
gets carried out (hence a fault to propagate the top level page table
entry/entries mapping to module's code/data would nest infinitly) and
(b) in the NMI path, where nested faults must absolutely not happen,
since otherwise the IRET from the nested fault re-enables NMIs,
potentially resulting in nested NMI occurences.

[PATCH] x86_64: Increase the variability of the process stack on 64bit architectures

8MB is not really very random, use 1GB (or more with larger page sizes)
instead.

Also use the low bits of the random generator output now instead of
throwing them away.

Only enabled on x86-64 right now. Other architectures need to add

[PATCH] x86-64: Use -mtune=generic for generic kernels

The upcomming gcc 4.2 got a new option -mtune=generic to tune
code for both common AMD and Intel CPUs. Use this option
when available for generic kernels.

On x86-64 it is used with CONFIG_GENERIC_CPU. On i386 it is
enabled with CONFIG_X86_GENERIC.  It won't affect the base
line CPU support in any ways and also not the minimum supported CPU.

14 years ago[PATCH] direct-io: bug fix in dio handling write error
Chen, Kenneth W [Sat, 25 Mar 2006 11:08:16 +0000]
[PATCH] direct-io: bug fix in dio handling write error

There is a bug in direct-io on propagating write error up to the higher I/O
layer.  When performing an async ODIRECT write to a block device, if a
device error occurred (like media error or disk is pulled), the error code
is only propagated from device driver to the DIO layer.  The error code
stops at finished_one_bio().  The aysnc write, however, is supposedly have
a corresponding AIO event with appropriate return code (in this case -EIO).
 Application which waits on the async write event, will hang forever since
such AIO event is lost forever (if such app did not use the timeout option
in io_getevents call.  Regardless, an AIO event is lost).

The discovery of above bug leads to another discovery of potential race
window with dio->result.  The fundamental problem is that dio->result is
overloaded with dual use: an indicator of fall back path for partial dio
write, and an error indicator used in the I/O completion path.  In the
event of device error, the setting of -EIO to dio->result clashes with
value used to track partial write that activates the fall back path.

It was also pointed out that it is impossible to use dio->result to track
partial write and at the same time to track error returned from device
driver.  Because direct_io_work can only determines whether it is a partial
write at the end of io submission and in mid stream of those io submission,
a return code could be coming back from the driver.  Thus messing up all
the subsequent logic.

Proposed fix is to separating out error code returned by the IO completion
path from partial IO submit tracking.  A new variable is added to dio
structure specifically to track io error returned in the completion path.

[PATCH] udf: fix uid/gid options and add uid/gid=ignore and forget options

As Pekka Enberg pointed out, with the if still following the else, you can
still get a null uid written to the disk if you specify a default uid= without
uid=forget.  In other words, if the desktop user is uid=1000 and the mount
option uid=1000 is given ( which is done on ubuntu automatically and probably
other distributions that use hal ), then if any other user besides uid 1000
owns a file then a 0 will be written to the media as the owning uid instead.

[PATCH] No need to protect current->group_info in sys_getgroups(), in_group_p() and in_egroup_p()

While doing some benchmarks of an Apache/PHP SMP server, I noticed high
oprofile numbers in in_group_p() and _atomic_dec_and_lock().

rank  percent
  1     4.8911 % __link_path_walk
  2     4.8503 % __d_lookup
*3     4.2911 % _atomic_dec_and_lock
  4     3.9307 % __copy_to_user_ll
  5     4.9004 % sysenter_past_esp
*6     3.3248 % in_group_p

It appears that in_group_p() does an uncessary

get_group_info(current->group_info); /* atomic_inc() */
  ... /* access current->group_info */
put_group_info(current->group_info); /* _atomic_dec_and_lock */

It is not necessary to do this, because the current task holds a reference
on its own group_info, and this reference cannot change during the lookup.

This patch deletes the get_group_info()/put_group_info() pair from
sys_getgroups(), in_group_p() and in_egroup_p() functions.

We dereference bitmap both one line above and one line below this check
rendering this check quite useless.

Spotted by the Coverity checker.

Adrian Bunk [Sat, 25 Mar 2006 11:07:50 +0000]
[PATCH] reiserfs/xattr_acl.c:reiserfs_get_acl(): make size an int

The Coverity checker wasn't happy seeing a size_t compared with -ENODATA
and -ENOSYS.

Since the only place where size is set is through the result of
reiserfs_xattr_get() which is an int, we could simply make size an int.

14 years ago[PATCH] BLK_DEV_INITRD: do not require BLK_DEV_RAM=y
Zdenek Pavlas [Sat, 25 Mar 2006 11:07:49 +0000]
[PATCH] BLK_DEV_INITRD: do not require BLK_DEV_RAM=y

Initramfs initrd images do not need a ramdisk device, so remove this
restriction in Kconfig.  BLK_DEV_RAM=n saves about 13k on i386.  Also
without ramdisk device there's no need for "dry run", so initramfs unpacks
much faster.

People using cramfs, squashfs, or gzipped ext2/minix initrd images are
probably smart enough not to turn off ramdisk support by accident.

[PATCH] find_task_by_pid() needs tasklist_lock

A couple of places are forgetting to take it.

The kswapd case is probably unimportant.  keventd_create_kthread() was racy.

The whole thing is a bit flakey: you start a kernel thread, get its pid from
kernel_thread() then look up its task_struct.

a) It assumes that pid recycling takes a "long" time.

b) We get a task_struct but no reference was taken on it.  The owner of the
   kswapd and kthread task_struct*'s must assume that the new thread won't
   exit unexpectedly.  Because if it does, they're left holding dead memory
   and any attempt to control or stop that task will crash.
