14 years ago[PATCH] matroxfb: read MGA PInS data on PowerPC
Ian Romanick [Fri, 9 Sep 2005 20:04:42 +0000]
[PATCH] matroxfb: read MGA PInS data on PowerPC

This updates the matroxfb code so that it can find the PInS data embedded
in the BIOS on PowerPC cards.  The process for finding the data is
different on OpenFirmware cards than on x86 cards, and the code for doing
so was missing.

After patching, building, installing, and booting a kernel, you should grep
for "PInS" in /var/log/messages.  You should see two messages in the log:

PInS data found at offset XXXXX
PInS memtype = X

On the GXT135p card I get "31168" and "5".  The first value is irrelevant,
but it's presence lets me know that the PInS data was actually found.  On a
GXT130p, the second value should be 3.  Since I don't have access to that
hardware, if someone can verify that, I will submit a follow-on patch that
rips out all the memtype parameter stuff.

Antonino A. Daplas [Fri, 9 Sep 2005 20:04:39 +0000]
[PATCH] console: Fix buffer copy on vc resize

On a vc resize, the contents of the old screen buffer are transferred to the
new screenbuffer.  If the new screenbuffer is smaller than the old one, only
the contents from the bottom are copied to new.  If the contents of the old
buffer are located at the top, then the contents will not be copied to the new
buffer resulting in a blank screen.

This bug will happen only if the vc in question is not in the foreground.
Doing an fbset -a or con2fbmap will trigger this bug.

To fix this problem, base the start of the copy from the location of the
current cursor.  If the cursor is near the top of the buffer, copy the
contents at the top, and if the cursor is near the bottom of the buffer, then
copy the contents at the bottom.  In the unlikely case where the new row size
is greater than 2x smaller than the old one, and the cursor is in the middle,
copy 1/2 screenful from the top and bottom of the cursor position.

[PATCH] fbcon: Saner 16-color to 4-color conversion

Currently, the default linux 16-colors are converted to 4-colors by simply
dividing the values by 4.  However, this is not necessarily correct since the
first 4 colors are converted to black, rendering them invisible.

So, for black, no conversion; for light colors, convert to gray, for normal
text color, no conversion, and for bright colors, convert to intense white.

[PATCH] v9fs: Documentation, Makefiles, Configuration

OVERVIEW

V9FS is a distributed file system for Linux which provides an
implementation of the Plan 9 resource sharing protocol 9P.  It can be
used to share all sorts of resources: static files, synthetic file servers
(such as /proc or /sys), devices, and application file servers (such as
FUSE).

BACKGROUND

Plan 9 (http://plan9.bell-labs.com/plan9) is a research operating
system and associated applications suite developed by the Computing
Science Research Center of AT&T Bell Laboratories (now a part of
Lucent Technologies), the same group that developed UNIX , C, and C++.
Plan 9 was initially released in 1993 to universities, and then made
generally available in 1995. Its core operating systems code laid the
foundation for the Inferno Operating System released as a product by
Lucent Bell-Labs in 1997. The Inferno venture was the only commercial
embodiment of Plan 9 and is currently maintained as a product by Vita
Nuova (http://www.vitanuova.com). After updated releases in 2000 and
2002, Plan 9 was open-sourced under the OSI approved Lucent Public
License in 2003.

The Plan 9 project was started by Ken Thompson and Rob Pike in 1985.
Their intent was to explore potential solutions to some of the
shortcomings of UNIX in the face of the widespread use of high-speed
networks to connect machines. In UNIX, networking was an afterthought
and UNIX clusters became little more than a network of stand-alone
systems. Plan 9 was designed from first principles as a seamless
distributed system with integrated secure network resource sharing.
Applications and services were architected in such a way as to allow
for implicit distribution across a cluster of systems. Configuring an
environment to use remote application components or services in place
of their local equivalent could be achieved with a few simple command
line instructions. For the most part, application implementations
operated independent of the location of their actual resources.

Commercial operating systems haven't changed much in the 20 years
since Plan 9 was conceived. Network and distributed systems support is
provided by a patchwork of middle-ware, with an endless number of
packages supplying pieces of the puzzle. Matters are complicated by
the use of different complicated protocols for individual services,
and separate implementations for kernel and application resources.
The V9FS project (http://v9fs.sourceforge.net) is an attempt to bring
Plan 9's unified approach to resource sharing to Linux and other
operating systems via support for the 9P2000 resource sharing
protocol.

V9FS HISTORY

V9FS was originally developed by Ron Minnich and Maya Gokhale at Los
Alamos National Labs (LANL) in 1997.  In November of 2001, Greg Watson
setup a SourceForge project as a public repository for the code which
supported the Linux 2.4 kernel.

About a year ago, I picked up the initial attempt Ron Minnich had
made to provide 2.6 support and got the code integrated into a 2.6.5
kernel.   I then went through a line-for-line re-write attempting to
clean-up the code while more closely following the Linux Kernel style
guidelines.  I co-authored a paper with Ron Minnich on the V9FS Linux
support including performance comparisons to NFSv3 using Bonnie and
PostMark - this paper appeared at the USENIX/FREENIX 2005
conference in April 2005:
( http://www.usenix.org/events/usenix05/tech/freenix/hensbergen.html ).

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION/REQUEST FOR COMMENTS

Our 2.6 kernel support is stabilizing and we'd like to begin pursuing
its integration into the official kernel tree.  We would appreciate any
review, comments, critiques, and additions from this community and are
actively seeking people to join our project and help us produce
something that would be acceptable and useful to the Linux community.

STATUS

The code is reasonably stable, although there are no doubt corner cases
our regression tests haven't discovered yet.  It is in regular use by several
of the developers and has been tested on x86 and PowerPC
(32-bit and 64-bit) in both small and large (LANL cluster) deployments.
Our current regression tests include fsx, bonnie, and postmark.

It was our intention to keep things as simple as possible for this
release -- trying to focus on correctness within the core of the
protocol support versus a rich set of features.  For example: a more
complete security model and cache layer are in the road map, but
excluded from this release.   Additionally, we have removed support for
mmap operations at Al Viro's request.

PERFORMANCE

Detailed performance numbers and analysis are included in the FREENIX
paper, but we show comparable performance to NFSv3 for large file
operations based on the Bonnie benchmark, and superior performance for
many small file operations based on the PostMark benchmark.   Somewhat
preliminary graphs (from the FREENIX paper) are available
(http://v9fs.sourceforge.net/perf/index.html).

RESOURCES

The source code is available in a few different forms:

tarballs: http://v9fs.sf.net

[PATCH] files: lock-free fd look-up

With the use of RCU in files structure, the look-up of files using fds can now
be lock-free.  The lookup is protected by rcu_read_lock()/rcu_read_unlock().
This patch changes the readers to use lock-free lookup.

14 years ago[PATCH] files: files struct with RCU
Dipankar Sarma [Fri, 9 Sep 2005 20:04:13 +0000]
[PATCH] files: files struct with RCU

Patch to eliminate struct files_struct.file_lock spinlock on the reader side
and use rcu refcounting rcuref_xxx api for the f_count refcounter.  The
updates to the fdtable are done by allocating a new fdtable structure and
setting files->fdt to point to the new structure.  The fdtable structure is
protected by RCU thereby allowing lock-free lookup.  For fd arrays/sets that
are vmalloced, we use keventd to free them since RCU callbacks can't sleep.  A
global list of fdtable to be freed is not scalable, so we use a per-cpu list.
If keventd is already handling the current cpu's work, we use a timer to defer
queueing of that work.

Since the last publication, this patch has been re-written to avoid using
explicit memory barriers and use rcu_assign_pointer(), rcu_dereference()
premitives instead.  This required that the fd information is kept in a
separate structure (fdtable) and updated atomically.

Dipankar Sarma [Fri, 9 Sep 2005 20:04:10 +0000]
[PATCH] files: break up files struct

In order for the RCU to work, the file table array, sets and their sizes must
be updated atomically.  Instead of ensuring this through too many memory
barriers, we put the arrays and their sizes in a separate structure.  This
patch takes the first step of putting the file table elements in a separate
structure fdtable that is embedded withing files_struct.  It also changes all
the users to refer to the file table using files_fdtable() macro.  Subsequent
applciation of RCU becomes easier after this.

Dipankar Sarma [Fri, 9 Sep 2005 20:04:07 +0000]
[PATCH] files: fix rcu initializers

First of a number of files_lock scaability patches.

 Here are the x86 numbers -

 tiobench on a 4(8)-way (HT) P4 system on ramdisk :

                                         (lockfree)
 Test            2.6.10-vanilla  Stdev   2.6.10-fd       Stdev
 -------------------------------------------------------------
 Seqread         1400.8          11.52   1465.4          34.27
 Randread        1594            8.86    2397.2          29.21
 Seqwrite        242.72          3.47    238.46          6.53
 Randwrite       445.74          9.15    446.4           9.75

 The performance improvement is very significant.
 We are getting killed by the cacheline bouncing of the files_struct
 lock here. Writes on ramdisk (ext2) seems to vary just too
 much to get any meaningful number.

 Also, With Tridge's thread_perf test on a 4(8)-way (HT) P4 xeon system :

 2.6.12-rc5-vanilla :

 Running test 'readwrite' with 8 tasks
 Threads     0.34 +/- 0.01 seconds
 Processes   0.16 +/- 0.00 seconds

 2.6.12-rc5-fd :

 Running test 'readwrite' with 8 tasks
 Threads     0.17 +/- 0.02 seconds
 Processes   0.17 +/- 0.02 seconds

 I repeated the measurements on ramfs (as opposed to ext2 on ramdisk in
 the earlier measurement) and I got more consistent results from tiobench :

 4(8) way xeon P4
 -----------------
                                         (lock-free)
 Test            2.6.12-rc5      Stdev   2.6.12-rc5-fd   Stdev
 -------------------------------------------------------------
 Seqread         1282            18.59   1343.6          26.37
 Randread        1517            7       2415            34.27
 Seqwrite        702.2           5.27    709.46           5.9
 Randwrite       846.86          15.15   919.68          21.4

 4-way ppc64
 ------------
                                         (lock-free)
 Test            2.6.12-rc5      Stdev   2.6.12-rc5-fd   Stdev
 -------------------------------------------------------------
 Seqread         1549            91.16   1569.6          47.2
 Randread        1473.6          25.11   1585.4          69.99
 Seqwrite        1096.8          20.03   1136            29.61
 Randwrite       1189.6           4.04   1275.2          32.96

 Also running Tridge's thread_perf test on ppc64 :

 2.6.12-rc5-vanilla
 --------------------
 Running test 'readwrite' with 4 tasks
 Threads     0.20 +/- 0.02 seconds
 Processes   0.16 +/- 0.01 seconds

 2.6.12-rc5-fd
 --------------------
 Running test 'readwrite' with 4 tasks
 Threads     0.18 +/- 0.04 seconds
 Processes   0.16 +/- 0.01 seconds

 The benefits are huge (upto ~60%) in some cases on x86 primarily
 due to the atomic operations during acquisition of ->file_lock
 and cache line bouncing in fast path. ppc64 benefits are modest
 due to LL/SC based locking, but still statistically significant.

14 years ago[PATCH] Numa-aware slab allocator V5
Christoph Lameter [Fri, 9 Sep 2005 20:03:32 +0000]
[PATCH] Numa-aware slab allocator V5

The NUMA API change that introduced kmalloc_node was accepted for
2.6.12-rc3.  Now it is possible to do slab allocations on a node to
localize memory structures.  This API was used by the pageset localization
patch and the block layer localization patch now in mm.  The existing
kmalloc_node is slow since it simply searches through all pages of the slab
to find a page that is on the node requested.  The two patches do a one
time allocation of slab structures at initialization and therefore the
speed of kmalloc node does not matter.

This patch allows kmalloc_node to be as fast as kmalloc by introducing node
specific page lists for partial, free and full slabs.  Slab allocation
improves in a NUMA system so that we are seeing a performance gain in AIM7
of about 5% with this patch alone.

More NUMA localizations are possible if kmalloc_node operates in an fast
way like kmalloc.

Test run on a 32p systems with 32G Ram.

[PATCH] dvb: usb: cxusb: fixes for new firmware

This patch changes two things:

1) a firmware update made by the vendor, which has to be done in Windows
   for now, changes the DVB-data-pipe from isochronous to bulk: it fixes the
   data distortions (and thus the video-distortions) in DVB-T mode; there is
   no backwards compatibility with the old firmware as it didn't work anyway

2) with the help of Steve Toth some reverse-engineered functionality is now
   named correctly, thank you
