Paul Mackerras [Thu, 15 Jun 2006 00:45:18 +0000]
powerpc: Use 64k pages without needing cache-inhibited large pages

Some POWER5+ machines can do 64k hardware pages for normal memory but
not for cache-inhibited pages.  This patch lets us use 64k hardware
pages for most user processes on such machines (assuming the kernel
has been configured with CONFIG_PPC_64K_PAGES=y).  User processes
start out using 64k pages and get switched to 4k pages if they use any
non-cacheable mappings.

With this, we use 64k pages for the vmalloc region and 4k pages for
the imalloc region.  If anything creates a non-cacheable mapping in
the vmalloc region, the vmalloc region will get switched to 4k pages.
I don't know of any driver other than the DRM that would do this,
though, and these machines don't have AGP.

When a region gets switched from 64k pages to 4k pages, we do not have
to clear out all the 64k HPTEs from the hash table immediately.  We
use the _PAGE_COMBO bit in the Linux PTE to indicate whether the page
was hashed in as a 64k page or a set of 4k pages.  If hash_page is
trying to insert a 4k page for a Linux PTE and it sees that it has
already been inserted as a 64k page, it first invalidates the 64k HPTE
before inserting the 4k HPTE.  The hash invalidation routines also use
the _PAGE_COMBO bit, to determine whether to look for a 64k HPTE or a
set of 4k HPTEs to remove.  With those two changes, we can tolerate a
mix of 4k and 64k HPTEs in the hash table, and they will all get
removed when the address space is torn down.

Paul Mackerras [Mon, 12 Jun 2006 02:16:26 +0000]
[PATCH] Fix for the PPTP hangs that have been reported

People have been reporting that PPP connections over ptys, such as
used with PPTP, will hang randomly when transferring large amounts of
data, for instance in http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6530.
I have managed to reproduce the problem, and the patch below fixes the
actual cause.

The problem is not in fact in ppp_async.c but in n_tty.c.  What
happens is that when pptp reads from the pty, we call read_chan() in
drivers/char/n_tty.c on the master side of the pty.  That copies all
the characters out of its buffer to userspace and then calls
check_unthrottle(), which calls the pty unthrottle routine, which
calls tty_wakeup on the slave side, which calls ppp_asynctty_wakeup,
which calls tasklet_schedule.  So far so good.  Since we are in
process context, the tasklet runs immediately and calls
ppp_async_process(), which calls ppp_async_push, which calls the
tty->driver->write function to send some more output.

However, tty->driver->write() returns zero, because the master
tty->receive_room is still zero.  We haven't returned from
check_unthrottle() yet, and read_chan() only updates tty->receive_room
_after_ calling check_unthrottle.  That means that the driver->write
call in ppp_async_process() returns 0.  That would be fine if we were
going to get a subsequent wakeup call, but we aren't (we just had it,
and the buffer is now empty).

The solution is for n_tty.c to update tty->receive_room _before_
calling the driver unthrottle routine.  The patch below does this.
With this patch I was able to transfer a 900MB file over a PPTP
connection (taking about 25 minutes), whereas without the patch the
connection would always stall in under a minute.

According to Intel ICH spec, there are several rules that Base Address
should be programmed before IOSE  (PCICMD register ) enabled.

For example ICH7:

12.1.3  SATA : the base address register for the bus master register
               should be programmed before this bit is set.

11.1.3:  PCICMD (USB): The base address register for USB should be
                       programmed before this bit is set.
....

To make sure kernel code follow this rule , and prevent unnecessary
confusion. I proposal this patch.

* In pci_default_resume() we capture the error code returned by
  pci_enable_device() but don't pass it up to the caller.
  Introduced by commit 95a629657dbe28e44a312c47815b3dc3f1ce0970
* In pci_resume_device(), the errors possibly returned by the driver's
  .resume method or by the generic pci_default_resume() function are
  ignored.

This patch fixes both issues.

David Howells [Sat, 10 Jun 2006 16:54:12 +0000]
[PATCH] Further alterations for memory barrier document

From: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com>

Apply some alterations to the memory barrier document that I worked out
with Paul McKenney of IBM, plus some of the alterations suggested by Alan
Stern.

The following changes were made:

 (*) One of the examples given for what can happen with overlapping memory
     barriers was wrong.

 (*) The description of general memory barriers said that a general barrier is
     a combination of a read barrier and a write barrier.  This isn't entirely
     true: it implies both, but is more than a combination of both.

 (*) The first example in the "SMP Barrier Pairing" section was wrong: the
     loads around the read barrier need to touch the memory locations in the
     opposite order to the stores around the write barrier.

 (*) Added a note to make explicit that the loads should be in reverse order to
     the stores.

 (*) Adjusted the diagrams in the "Examples Of Memory Barrier Sequences"
     section to make them clearer.  Added a couple of diagrams to make it more
     clear as to how it could go wrong without the barrier.

 (*) Added a section on memory speculation.

 (*) Dropped any references to memory allocation routines doing memory
     barriers.  They may do sometimes, but it can't be relied on.  This may be
     worthy of further documentation later.

 (*) Made the fact that a LOCK followed by an UNLOCK should not be considered a
     full memory barrier more explicit and gave an example.

   just report it the first time we notice this condition.

3) If there is no valid SRAM signature, assume the device

Michael Ellerman [Wed, 7 Jun 2006 07:10:03 +0000]
[PATCH] powerpc: Make rtas console _much_ faster

Currently the hvc_rtas driver is painfully slow to use. Our "benchmark" is
ls -R /etc, which spits out about 27866 characters. The theoretical maximum
speed would be about 2.2 seconds, the current code takes ~50 seconds.

The core of the problem is that sometimes when the tty layer asks us to push
characters the firmware isn't able to handle some or all of them, and so
returns an error. The current code sees this and just returns to the tty code
with the buffer half sent.

The khvcd thread will eventually wake up and try to push more characters, which
will usually work because by then the firmware's had time to make room. But
the khvcd thread only wakes up every 10 milliseconds, which isn't fast enough.

So change the khvcd thread logic so that if there's an incomplete write we
yield() and then immediately try writing again. Doing so makes POLL_QUICK and
POLL_WRITE synonymous, so remove POLL_QUICK.

With this patch our "benchmark" takes ~2.8 seconds.

Paul Mackerras [Wed, 7 Jun 2006 06:14:40 +0000]
[PATCH] powerpc: Implement support for setting little-endian mode via prctl

This adds the PowerPC part of the code to allow processes to change
their endian mode via prctl.

This also extends the alignment exception handler to be able to fix up
alignment exceptions that occur in little-endian mode, both for
"PowerPC" little-endian and true little-endian.

We always enter signal handlers in big-endian mode -- the support for
little-endian mode does not amount to the creation of a little-endian
user/kernel ABI.  If the signal handler returns, the endian mode is
restored to what it was when the signal was delivered.

We have two new kernel CPU feature bits, one for PPC little-endian and
one for true little-endian.  Most of the classic 32-bit processors
support PPC little-endian, and this is reflected in the CPU feature
table.  There are two corresponding feature bits reported to userland
in the AT_HWCAP aux vector entry.

This is based on an earlier patch by Anton Blanchard.

14 years ago[PATCH] Add a prctl to change the endianness of a process.
Anton Blanchard [Wed, 7 Jun 2006 06:10:19 +0000]
[PATCH] Add a prctl to change the endianness of a process.

This new prctl is intended for changing the execution mode of the
processor, on processors that support both a little-endian mode and a
big-endian mode.  It is intended for use by programs such as
instruction set emulators (for example an x86 emulator on PowerPC),
which may find it convenient to use the processor in an alternate
endianness mode when executing translated instructions.

Note that this does not imply the existence of a fully-fledged ABI for
both endiannesses, or of compatibility code for converting system
calls done in the non-native endianness mode.  The program is expected
to arrange for all of its system call arguments to be presented in the
native endianness.

Switching between big and little-endian mode will require some care in
constructing the instruction sequence for the switch.  Generally the
instructions up to the instruction that invokes the prctl system call
will have to be in the old endianness, and subsequent instructions
will have to be in the new endianness.

might also hit a bug when running with native hash management (non-HV)
as our code is specifically optimized for the case where no write back
happens.

Thus there is a very small therocial window were a hash PTE can become
corrupted if that HPTE has just been upgraded to read write, a store
access happens on it, and that races with another processor evicting
that same slot. Since eviction (caused by an almost full hash) is
extremely rare, the bug is very unlikely to happen fortunately.

This fixes by allowing the updating of the protection bits in the native
hash handling to also set (but not clear) the "C" bit, and, in order to
also improve performances in the general case, by always setting that
bit on newly inserted hash PTE so that writeback really never happens.

Jens Axboe [Thu, 8 Jun 2006 06:49:06 +0000]
[PATCH] elevator switching race

There's a race between shutting down one io scheduler and firing up the
next, in which a new io could enter and cause the io scheduler to be
invoked with bad or NULL data.

To fix this, we need to maintain the queue lock for a bit longer.
Unfortunately we cannot do that, since the elevator init requires to be
run without the lock held.  This isn't easily fixable, without also
changing the mempool API.  So split the initialization into two parts,
and alloc-init operation and an attach operation.  Then we can
preallocate the io scheduler and related structures, and run the attach
inside the lock after we detach the old one.

This patch has survived 30 minutes of 1 second io scheduler switching
with a very busy io load.

14 years ago[MIPS] open() forces O_LARGEFILE for o32 on 64bit kernels
Thiemo Seufer [Sun, 28 May 2006 14:02:53 +0000]
[MIPS] open() forces O_LARGEFILE for o32 on 64bit kernels

open() always sets the O_LARGEFILE flag for the o32 ABI implementation
of a 64bit kernel. The appended patch fixes it.

[MIPS] Au1xx0: fix prom_getenv() to handle YAMON style environment

Alchemy boards use YAMON which passes the environment variables as the
tuples of strings (the name followed by the value) unlike PMON which
passes "name=<val>" strings.

14 years ago[MIPS] Fix swap entry for MIPS32 36-bit physical address

[MIPS] Fix swap entry for MIPS32 36-bit physical address

With 64-bit physical address enabled, 'swapon' was causing kernel oops on
Alchemy CPUs (MIPS32) because of the swap entry type field corrupting the
_PAGE_FILE bit in 'pte_low' field. So, switch to storing the swap entry in
'pte_high' field using all its bits except _PAGE_GLOBAL and _PAGE_VALID which
gives 25 bits for the swap entry offset.
