12 years agoasmlinkage_protect replaces prevent_tail_call
Roland McGrath [Thu, 10 Apr 2008 22:37:38 +0000]
asmlinkage_protect replaces prevent_tail_call

The prevent_tail_call() macro works around the problem of the compiler
clobbering argument words on the stack, which for asmlinkage functions
is the caller's (user's) struct pt_regs.  The tail/sibling-call
optimization is not the only way that the compiler can decide to use
stack argument words as scratch space, which we have to prevent.
Other optimizations can do it too.

Until we have new compiler support to make "asmlinkage" binding on the
compiler's own use of the stack argument frame, we have work around all
the manifestations of this issue that crop up.

More cases seem to be prevented by also keeping the incoming argument
variables live at the end of the function.  This makes their original
stack slots attractive places to leave those variables, so the compiler
tends not clobber them for something else.  It's still no guarantee, but
it handles some observed cases that prevent_tail_call() did not.

12 years agox86: Simplify cpu_idle_wait

x86: Simplify cpu_idle_wait

This patch also resolves hangs on boot:
http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/2/23/263
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10093

The bug was causing once-in-few-reboots 10-15 sec wait during boot on
certain laptops.

Earlier commit 40d6a146629b98d8e322b6f9332b182c7cbff3df added
smp_call_function in cpu_idle_wait() to kick cpus that are in tickless
idle.  Looking at cpu_idle_wait code at that time, code seemed to be
over-engineered for a case which is rarely used (while changing idle
handler).

Below is a simplified version of cpu_idle_wait, which just makes a dummy
smp_call_function to all cpus, to make them come out of old idle handler
and start using the new idle handler.  It eliminates code in the idle
loop to handle cpu_idle_wait.

cfq-iosched: do not leak ioc_data across iosched switches

When switching scheduler from cfq, cfq_exit_queue() does not clear
ioc->ioc_data, leaving a dangling pointer that can deceive the following
lookups when the iosched is switched back to cfq.  The pattern that can
trigger that is the following:

    - elevator switch from cfq to something else;
    - module unloading, with elv_unregister() that calls cfq_free_io_context()
      on ioc freeing the cic (via the .trim op);
    - module gets reloaded and the elevator switches back to cfq;
    - reallocation of a cic at the same address as before (with a valid key).

To fix it just assign NULL to ioc_data in __cfq_exit_single_io_context(),
that is called from the regular exit path and from the elevator switching
code.  The only path that frees a cic and is not covered is the error handling
one, but cic's freed in this way are never cached in ioc_data.

snd_es1968_ac97_read() calls snd_es1968_ac97_wait() first outside a locked

snd_es1968_ac97_wait() has a polling loop with a cond_resched() inside it..
which sleeps, so the second call is invalid.

this is not very elegant in principle, it's very likely the easiest thing to

12 years agomemcg: fix node_state handling
KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Wed, 9 Apr 2008 00:41:54 +0000]
memcg: fix node_state handling

This should be N_NORMAL_MEMORY.

N_NORMAL_MEMORY is "true" if a node has memory for the kernel.  N_HIGH_MEMORY
is "true" if a node has memory for HIGHMEM.  (If CONFIG_HIGHMEM=n, always
"true")

This check is used for testing whether we can use kmalloc_node() on a node.
Then, if there is a node which only contains HIGHMEM, the system will call
kmalloc_node() which doesn't contain memory for the kernel.  If it happens
under SLUB, the kernel will panic.  I think this only happens on x86_32-numa.

12 years agoub: remove BUG() after __blk_end_request and fix the condition causing it
Pete Zaitcev [Wed, 9 Apr 2008 00:41:51 +0000]
ub: remove BUG() after __blk_end_request and fix the condition causing it

When __blk_end_request returns nonzero, it means that the request was
not completely processed and some BIOs are still attached. Since we
have dequeued it by that time, it means leaking requests and hanging
processes, which is why BUG() was in there. In ub this happens if
a packet request ends normally, but with residue (e.g. when scsi_id
issues INQUIRY).

The fix is to make sure that arguments passed to __blk_end_request
are correct: the full request length and not just transferred length.
The transferred length is indicated to applications by adjusting
rq->data_len with old, unchanged code outside of this patch.

virtio: remove overzealous BUG_ON.

The 'disable_cb' callback is designed as an optimization to tell the host
we don't need callbacks now.  As it is not reliable, the debug check is
overzealous: it can happen on two CPUs at the same time.  Document this.

Even if it were reliable, the virtio_net driver doesn't disable
callbacks on transmit so the START_USE/END_USE debugging reentrance
protection can be easily tripped even on UP.

x86: fix 64-bit asm NOPS for CONFIG_GENERIC_CPU

ASM_NOP's for 64-bit kernel with CONFIG_GENERIC_CPU is broken
with the recent x86 nops merge. They were using GENERIC_NOPS
which will truncate the upper 32bits of %rsi, because of the missing
64bit rex prefix.

For now, fall back ASM NOPS for generic cpu to K8 NOPS, similar
to the code before the wrong x86 nop merge.

This should resolve the crash seen by Ingo on a test-system:

12 years agoscsi: fix sense_slab/bio swapping livelock
Hugh Dickins [Sun, 6 Apr 2008 22:56:57 +0000]
scsi: fix sense_slab/bio swapping livelock

Since 2.6.25-rc7, I've been seeing an occasional livelock on one x86_64
machine, copying kernel trees to tmpfs, paging out to swap.

Signature: 6000 pages under writeback but never getting written; most
tasks of interest trying to reclaim, but each get_swap_bio waiting for a
bio in mempool_alloc's io_schedule_timeout(5*HZ); every five seconds an
atomic page allocation failure report from kblockd failing to allocate a
sense_buffer in __scsi_get_command.

__scsi_get_command has a (one item) free_list to protect against this,
but rc1's [SCSI] use dynamically allocated sense buffer
de25deb18016f66dcdede165d07654559bb332bc upset that slightly.  When it
fails to allocate from the separate sense_slab, instead of giving up, it
must fall back to the command free_list, which is sure to have a
sense_buffer attached.

Either my earlier -rc testing missed this, or there's some recent
contributory factor.  One very significant factor is SLUB, which merges
slab caches when it can, and on 64-bit happens to merge both bio cache
and sense_slab cache into kmalloc's 128-byte cache: so that under this
swapping load, bios above are liable to gobble up all the slots needed
for scsi_cmnd sense_buffers below.

That's disturbing behaviour, and I tried a few things to fix it.  Adding
a no-op constructor to the sense_slab inhibits SLUB from merging it, and
stops all the allocation failures I was seeing; but it's rather a hack,
and perhaps in different configurations we have other caches on the
swapout path which are ill-merged.

Another alternative is to revert the separate sense_slab, using
cache-line-aligned sense_buffer allocated beyond scsi_cmnd from the one
kmem_cache; but that might waste more memory, and is only a way of
diverting around the known problem.

While I don't like seeing the allocation failures, and hate the idea of
all those bios piled up above a scsi host working one by one, it does
seem to emerge fairly soon with the livelock fix.  So lacking better
ideas, stick with that one clear fix for now.

ipmi: change device node ordering to reflect probe order

In 2.6.14 a patch was merged which switching the order of the ipmi device
naming from in-order-of-discovery over to reverse-order-of-discovery.

So on systems with multiple BMC interfaces, the ipmi device names are being
created in reverse order relative to how they are discovered on the system
(e.g.  on an IBM x3950 multinode server with N nodes, the device name for the
BMC in the first node is /dev/ipmiN-1 and the device name for the BMC in the
last node is /dev/ipmi0, etc.).

The problem is caused by the list handling routines chosen in dmi_scan.c.
Using list_add() causes the multiple ipmi devices to be added to the device
list using a stack-paradigm and so the ipmi driver subsequently pulls them off
during initialization in LIFO order.  This patch changes the
dmi_save_ipmi_device() list handling paradigm to a queue, thereby allowing the
ipmi driver to build the ipmi device names in the order in which they are
found on the system.

THe CFI driver in 2.6.24 kernel is broken.  Not so intensive read/write

memory controller: make memory resource control aware of boot options

A boot option for the memory controller was discussed on lkml.  It is a good
idea to add it, since it saves memory for people who want to turn off the
memory controller.

By default the option is on for the following two reasons:

1. It provides compatibility with the current scheme where the memory
   controller turns on if the config option is enabled
2. It allows for wider testing of the memory controller, once the config
   option is enabled

We still allow the create, destroy callbacks to succeed, since they are not
aware of boot options.  We do not populate the directory will memory resource
controller specific files.

12 years agocgroups: add cgroup support for enabling controllers at boot time
Paul Menage [Fri, 4 Apr 2008 21:29:57 +0000]
cgroups: add cgroup support for enabling controllers at boot time

The effects of cgroup_disable=foo are:

- foo isn't auto-mounted if you mount all cgroups in a single hierarchy
- foo isn't visible as an individually mountable subsystem

As a result there will only ever be one call to foo->create(), at init time;
all processes will stay in this group, and the group will never be mounted on
a visible hierarchy.  Any additional effects (e.g.  not allocating metadata)
are up to the foo subsystem.

This doesn't handle early_init subsystems (their "disabled" bit isn't set be,
but it could easily be extended to do so if any of the early_init systems
wanted it - I think it would just involve some nastier parameter processing
since it would occur before the command-line argument parser had been run.

Hugh said:

  Ballpark figures, I'm trying to get this question out rather than
  processing the exact numbers: CONFIG_CGROUP_MEM_RES_CTLR adds 15% overhead
  to the affected paths, booting with cgroup_disable=memory cuts that back to
  1% overhead (due to slightly bigger struct page).

  I'm no expert on distros, they may have no interest whatever in
  CONFIG_CGROUP_MEM_RES_CTLR=y; and the rest of us can easily build with or
  without it, or apply the cgroup_disable=memory patches.

12 years agoBe more careful about marking buffers dirty
Linus Torvalds [Fri, 4 Apr 2008 21:38:17 +0000]
Be more careful about marking buffers dirty

Mikulas Patocka noted that the optimization where we check if a buffer
was already dirty (and we avoid re-dirtying it) was not really SMP-safe.

Since the read of the old status was not synchronized with anything, an
aggressive CPU re-ordering of memory accesses might have moved that read
up to before the data was even written to the buffer, and another CPU
that cleaned it again, causing the newly dirty state to never actually
hit the disk.

Admittedly this would probably never trigger in practice, but it's still
wrong.

Mikulas sent a patch that fixed the problem, but I dislike the subtlety
of the whole optimization, so this is an alternate fix that is more
explicit about the particular SMP ordering for the optimization, and
separates out the speculative reads of the buffer state into its own
conditional (and makes the memory barrier only happen if we are likely
to actually hit the optimized case in the first place).

I considered removing the optimization entirely, but Andrew argued for
it's continued existence. I'm a push-over.

12 years agoparport_pc: make sure to release IO ports after probing for IT87XX

parport_pc: make sure to release IO ports after probing for IT87XX

Commit f63fd7e299ee13da071ecfce2b90b58c5e1562b1 ("parport_pc: detection
for SuperIO IT87XX POST") only released the IO port region on success,
not when the probe for the IT87XX chip failed.

That caused not only a reserved region to leak, but also caused an oops
when the driver module was unloaded and somebody tried to cat
/proc/ioports - because the string that was assigned to the IO port
region was a static string in the module virtual address area.

12 years agox86: tsc prevent time going backwards
Thomas Gleixner [Tue, 1 Apr 2008 17:45:18 +0000]
x86: tsc prevent time going backwards

We already catch most of the TSC problems by sanity checks, but there
is a subtle bug which has been in the code for ever. This can cause
time jumps in the range of hours.

This was reported in:
     http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/8/23/96
and
     http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/3/31/23

I was able to reproduce the problem with a gettimeofday loop test on a
dual core and a quad core machine which both have sychronized
TSCs. The TSCs seems not to be perfectly in sync though, but the
kernel is not able to detect the slight delta in the sync check. Still
there exists an extremly small window where this delta can be observed
with a real big time jump. So far I was only able to reproduce this
with the vsyscall gettimeofday implementation, but in theory this
might be observable with the syscall based version as well.

CPU 0 updates the clock source variables under xtime/vyscall lock and
CPU1, where the TSC is slighty behind CPU0, is reading the time right
after the seqlock was unlocked.

The clocksource reference data was updated with the TSC from CPU0 and
the value which is read from TSC on CPU1 is less than the reference
data. This results in a huge delta value due to the unsigned
subtraction of the TSC value and the reference value. This algorithm
can not be changed due to the support of wrapping clock sources like
pm timer.

The huge delta is converted to nanoseconds and added to xtime, which
is then observable by the caller. The next gettimeofday call on CPU1
will show the correct time again as now the TSC has advanced above the
reference value.

To prevent this TSC specific wreckage we need to compare the TSC value
against the reference value and return the latter when it is larger
than the actual TSC value.

I pondered to mark the TSC unstable when the readout is smaller than
the reference value, but this would render an otherwise good and fast
clocksource unusable without a real good reason.

xen: fix grant table bug

fix memory corruption and crash due to mis-sized grant table.

A PV OS has two grant table data structures: the grant table itself
and a free list.  The free list is composed of an array of pages,
which grow dynamically as the guest OS requires more grants.  While
the grant table contains 8-byte entries, the free list contains 4-byte
entries.  So we have half as many pages in the free list than in the
grant table.

There was a bug in the free list allocation code. The free list was
indexed as if it was the same size as the grant table.  But it's only
half as large.  So memory got corrupted, and I was seeing crashes in
the slab allocator later on.
