8 years agonet: filter: BPF 'JIT' compiler for PPC64
Matt Evans [Wed, 20 Jul 2011 15:51:00 +0000]
net: filter: BPF 'JIT' compiler for PPC64

An implementation of a code generator for BPF programs to speed up packet
filtering on PPC64, inspired by Eric Dumazet's x86-64 version.

Filter code is generated as an ABI-compliant function in module_alloc()'d mem
with stackframe & prologue/epilogue generated if required (simple filters don't
need anything more than an li/blr).  The filter's local variables, M[], live in
registers.  Supports all BPF opcodes, although "complicated" loads from negative
packet offsets (e.g. SKF_LL_OFF) are not yet supported.

There are a couple of further optimisations left for future work; many-pass
assembly with branch-reach reduction and a register allocator to push M[]
variables into volatile registers would improve the code quality further.

This currently supports big-endian 64-bit PowerPC only (but is fairly simple
to port to PPC32 or LE!).

Enabled in the same way as x86-64:

echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/core/bpf_jit_enable

Or, enabled with extra debug output:

echo 2 > /proc/sys/net/core/bpf_jit_enable

tg3: Fix io failures after chip reset

Commit f2096f94b514d88593355995d5dd276961e88af1, entitled
"tg3: Add 5720 H2BMC support", needed to add code to preserve some bits
set by firmware.  Unfortunately the new code causes throughput to stop
after a chip reset because it enables state machines before they are

8 years agovmscan: fix a livelock in kswapd
Shaohua Li [Tue, 19 Jul 2011 15:49:26 +0000]
vmscan: fix a livelock in kswapd

I'm running a workload which triggers a lot of swap in a machine with 4
nodes.  After I kill the workload, I found a kswapd livelock.  Sometimes
kswapd3 or kswapd2 are keeping running and I can't access filesystem,
but most memory is free.

This looks like a regression since commit 08951e545918c159 ("mm: vmscan:
correct check for kswapd sleeping in sleeping_prematurely").

Node 2 and 3 have only ZONE_NORMAL, but balance_pgdat() will return 0
for classzone_idx.  The reason is end_zone in balance_pgdat() is 0 by
default, if all zones have watermark ok, end_zone will keep 0.

Later sleeping_prematurely() always returns true.  Because this is an
order 3 wakeup, and if classzone_idx is 0, both balanced_pages and
present_pages in pgdat_balanced() are 0.  We add a special case here.
If a zone has no page, we think it's balanced.  This fixes the livelock.

fs/libfs.c: fix simple_attr_write() on 32bit machines

Assume that /sys/kernel/debug/dummy64 is debugfs file created by
debugfs_create_x64().

# cd /sys/kernel/debug
# echo 0x1234567812345678 > dummy64
# cat dummy64
0x0000000012345678

# echo 0x80000000 > dummy64
# cat dummy64
0xffffffff80000000

A value larger than INT_MAX cannot be written to the debugfs file created
by debugfs_create_u64 or debugfs_create_x64 on 32bit machine.  Because
simple_attr_write() uses simple_strtol() for the conversion.

To fix this, use simple_strtoll() instead.

`make headers_check` complains that

linux-2.6/usr/include/linux/sdla.h:116: userspace cannot reference
function or variable defined in the kernel

this is due to that there is no such a kernel function,

8 years agovhost: vhost TX zero-copy support
Michael S. Tsirkin [Mon, 18 Jul 2011 03:48:46 +0000]
vhost: vhost TX zero-copy support

>From: Shirley Ma <mashirle@us.ibm.com>

This adds experimental zero copy support in vhost-net,
disabled by default. To enable, set
experimental_zcopytx module option to 1.

This patch maintains the outstanding userspace buffers in the
sequence it is delivered to vhost. The outstanding userspace buffers
will be marked as done once the lower device buffers DMA has finished.
This is monitored through last reference of kfree_skb callback. Two
buffer indices are used for this purpose.

The vhost-net device passes the userspace buffers info to lower device
skb through message control. DMA done status check and guest
notification are handled by handle_tx: in the worst case is all buffers
in the vq are in pending/done status, so we need to notify guest to
release DMA done buffers first before we get any new buffers from the
vq.

One known problem is that if the guest stops submitting
buffers, buffers might never get used until some
further action, e.g. device reset. This does not
seem to affect linux guests.

Lets cache this value in struct leaf_info, (fill a hole on 64bit arches)

With route cache disabled, this saves ~2% of cpu in udpflood bench on
