13 years agokbuild: fix ia64 breakage after introducing make -rR
Sam Ravnborg [Sat, 1 Jul 2006 07:58:02 +0000]
kbuild: fix ia64 breakage after introducing make -rR

kbuild used $¤(*F to get filename of target without extension.
This was used in several places all over kbuild, but introducing
make -rR broke his for all cases where we specified full path to
target/prerequsite. It is assumed that make -rR disables old style
suffix-rules which is why is suddenly failed.

ia64 was impacted by this change because several div* routines in
arch/ia64/lib are build using explicit paths and then kbuild failed.

Thanks to David Mosberger-Tang <David.Mosberger@acm.org> for an explanation
what was the root-cause and for testing on ia64.

This patch also fixes two uses of $(*F) in arch/um

[PATCH] knfsd: nfsd: call nfsd_setuser() on fh_compose(), fix nfsd4 permissions problem

In the typical v2/v3 case the only new filehandles used as arguments to
operations are filehandles taken directly off the wire, which don't get
dentries until fh_verify() is called.

But in v4 the filehandles that are arguments to operations were often created
by previous operations (putrootfh, lookup, etc.) using fh_compose, which sets
the dentry in the filehandle without calling nfsd_setuser().

This also means that, for example, if filesystem B is mounted on filesystem A,
and filesystem A is exported without root-squashing, then a client can bypass
the rootsquashing on B using a compound that starts at a filehandle in A,
crosses into B using lookups, and then does stuff in B.

NeilBrown [Fri, 30 Jun 2006 08:56:12 +0000]
[PATCH] knfsd: ignore ref_fh when crossing a mountpoint

nfsd tries to return to a client the same sort of filehandle as was used by
the client.  This removes some filehandle aliasing issues and means that a
server upgrade followed by a downgrade will not confused clients not restarted
during that time.

However when crossing a mountpoint, the filehandle used for one filesystem
doesn't provide any useful information on what sort of filehandle should be
used on the other, and can provide misleading information.  So if the
reference filehandle is on a different filesystem to the one being generated,
ignore it.

[PATCH] knfsd: remove noise about filehandle being uptodate

There is a perfectly valid situation where fh_update gets called on an already
uptodate filehandle - in nfsd_create_v3 where a CREATE_UNCHECKED finds an
existing file and wants to just set the size.

We could possible optimise out the call in that case, but the only harm
involved is that fh_update prints a warning, so it is easier to remove the
warning.

[PATCH] EDAC: mc numbers refactor 1-of-2

Remove add_mc_to_global_list().  In next patch, this function will be
reimplemented with different semantics.

1 Reimplement add_mc_to_global_list() with semantics that allow the caller to
  determine the ID number for a mem_ctl_info structure.  Then modify
  edac_mc_add_mc() so that the caller specifies the ID number for the new
  mem_ctl_info structure.  Platform-specific code should be able to assign the
  ID numbers in a platform-specific manner.  For instance, on Opteron it makes
  sense to have the ID of the mem_ctl_info structure match the ID of the node
  that the memory controller belongs to.

2 Modify callers of edac_mc_add_mc() so they use the new semantics.

Andrew Morton [Fri, 30 Jun 2006 08:56:00 +0000]
[PATCH] cond_resched() fix

Fix a bug identified by Zou Nan hai <nanhai.zou@intel.com>:

If the system is in state SYSTEM_BOOTING, and need_resched() is true,
cond_resched() returns true even though it didn't reschedule.  Consequently
need_resched() remains true and JBD locks up.

Fix that by teaching cond_resched() to only return true if it really did call
schedule().

cond_resched_lock() and cond_resched_softirq() have a problem too.  If we're
in SYSTEM_BOOTING state and need_resched() is true, these functions will drop
the lock and will then try to call schedule(), but the SYSTEM_BOOTING state
will prevent schedule() from being called.  So on return, need_resched() will
still be true, but cond_resched_lock() has to return 1 to tell the caller that
the lock was dropped.  The caller will probably lock up.

Bottom line: if these functions dropped the lock, they _must_ call schedule()
to clear need_resched().   Make it so.

Also, uninline __cond_resched().  It's largeish, and slowpath.

Jeff Dike [Fri, 30 Jun 2006 08:55:55 +0000]
[PATCH] uml: unregister useless console when it's not needed

-mm in combination with an FC5 init started dying with 'stderr=1' because init
didn't like the lack of /dev/console and exited.  The problem was that the
stderr console, which is intended to dump printk output to the terminal before
the regular console is initialized, isn't a tty, and so can't make
/dev/console operational.

However, since it is registered first, the normal console, when it is
registered, doesn't become the preferred console, and isn't attached to
/dev/console.  Thus, /dev/console is never operational.

This patch makes the stderr console unregister itself in an initcall, which is
late enough that the normal console is registered.  When that happens, the
normal console will become the preferred console and will be able to run
/dev/console.

13 years ago[PATCH] Light weight event counters
Christoph Lameter [Fri, 30 Jun 2006 08:55:45 +0000]
[PATCH] Light weight event counters

The remaining counters in page_state after the zoned VM counter patches
have been applied are all just for show in /proc/vmstat.  They have no
essential function for the VM.

We use a simple increment of per cpu variables.  In order to avoid the most
severe races we disable preempt.  Preempt does not prevent the race between
an increment and an interrupt handler incrementing the same statistics
counter.  However, that race is exceedingly rare, we may only loose one
increment or so and there is no requirement (at least not in kernel) that
the vm event counters have to be accurate.

In the non preempt case this results in a simple increment for each
counter.  For many architectures this will be reduced by the compiler to a
single instruction.  This single instruction is atomic for i386 and x86_64.
 And therefore even the rare race condition in an interrupt is avoided for
both architectures in most cases.

The patchset also adds an off switch for embedded systems that allows a
building of linux kernels without these counters.

The implementation of these counters is through inline code that hopefully
results in only a single instruction increment instruction being emitted
(i386, x86_64) or in the increment being hidden though instruction
concurrency (EPIC architectures such as ia64 can get that done).

Benefits:
- VM event counter operations usually reduce to a single inline instruction
  on i386 and x86_64.
- No interrupt disable, only preempt disable for the preempt case.
  Preempt disable can also be avoided by moving the counter into a spinlock.
- Handling is similar to zoned VM counters.
- Simple and easily extendable.
- Can be omitted to reduce memory use for embedded use.

13 years ago[PATCH] Use Zoned VM Counters for NUMA statistics
Christoph Lameter [Fri, 30 Jun 2006 08:55:44 +0000]
[PATCH] Use Zoned VM Counters for NUMA statistics

The numa statistics are really event counters.  But they are per node and
so we have had special treatment for these counters through additional
fields on the pcp structure.  We can now use the per zone nature of the
zoned VM counters to realize these.

This will shrink the size of the pcp structure on NUMA systems.  We will
have some room to add additional per zone counters that will all still fit
in the same cacheline.

 Bits Prior pcp size    Size after patch We can add
 ------------------------------------------------------------------
 64 128 bytes (16 words) 80 bytes (10 words) 48
 32  76 bytes (19 words) 56 bytes (14 words) 8 (64 byte cacheline)
72 (128 byte)

Remove the special statistics for numa and replace them with zoned vm
counters.  This has the side effect that global sums of these events now
show up in /proc/vmstat.

Also take the opportunity to move the zone_statistics() function from
page_alloc.c into vmstat.c.

Christoph Lameter [Fri, 30 Jun 2006 08:55:36 +0000]
[PATCH] zoned vm counters: split NR_ANON_PAGES off from NR_FILE_MAPPED

The current NR_FILE_MAPPED is used by zone reclaim and the dirty load
calculation as the number of mapped pagecache pages.  However, that is not
true.  NR_FILE_MAPPED includes the mapped anonymous pages.  This patch
separates those and therefore allows an accurate tracking of the anonymous
pages per zone.

It then becomes possible to determine the number of unmapped pages per zone
and we can avoid scanning for unmapped pages if there are none.

Also it may now be possible to determine the mapped/unmapped ratio in
get_dirty_limit.  Isnt the number of anonymous pages irrelevant in that
calculation?

Note that this will change the meaning of the number of mapped pages reported
in /proc/vmstat /proc/meminfo and in the per node statistics.  This may affect
user space tools that monitor these counters!  NR_FILE_MAPPED works like
NR_FILE_DIRTY.  It is only valid for pagecache pages.

Christoph Lameter [Fri, 30 Jun 2006 08:55:35 +0000]
[PATCH] zoned vm counters: conversion of nr_pagecache to per zone counter

Currently a single atomic variable is used to establish the size of the page
cache in the whole machine.  The zoned VM counters have the same method of
implementation as the nr_pagecache code but also allow the determination of
the pagecache size per zone.

Remove the special implementation for nr_pagecache and make it a zoned counter
named NR_FILE_PAGES.

Updates of the page cache counters are always performed with interrupts off.
We can therefore use the __ variant here.

13 years ago[PATCH] zoned vm counters: convert nr_mapped to per zone counter
Christoph Lameter [Fri, 30 Jun 2006 08:55:34 +0000]
[PATCH] zoned vm counters: convert nr_mapped to per zone counter

nr_mapped is important because it allows a determination of how many pages of
a zone are not mapped, which would allow a more efficient means of determining
when we need to reclaim memory in a zone.

We take the nr_mapped field out of the page state structure and define a new
per zone counter named NR_FILE_MAPPED (the anonymous pages will be split off
from NR_MAPPED in the next patch).

We replace the use of nr_mapped in various kernel locations.  This avoids the
looping over all processors in try_to_free_pages(), writeback, reclaim (swap +
zone reclaim).

13 years ago[PATCH] zoned vm counters: basic ZVC (zoned vm counter) implementation
Christoph Lameter [Fri, 30 Jun 2006 08:55:33 +0000]
[PATCH] zoned vm counters: basic ZVC (zoned vm counter) implementation

Per zone counter infrastructure

The counters that we currently have for the VM are split per processor.  The
processor however has not much to do with the zone these pages belong to.  We
cannot tell f.e.  how many ZONE_DMA pages are dirty.

So we are blind to potentially inbalances in the usage of memory in various
zones.  F.e.  in a NUMA system we cannot tell how many pages are dirty on a
particular node.  If we knew then we could put measures into the VM to balance
the use of memory between different zones and different nodes in a NUMA
system.  For example it would be possible to limit the dirty pages per node so
that fast local memory is kept available even if a process is dirtying huge
amounts of pages.

Another example is zone reclaim.  We do not know how many unmapped pages exist
per zone.  So we just have to try to reclaim.  If it is not working then we
pause and try again later.  It would be better if we knew when it makes sense
to reclaim unmapped pages from a zone.  This patchset allows the determination
of the number of unmapped pages per zone.  We can remove the zone reclaim
interval with the counters introduced here.

Futhermore the ability to have various usage statistics available will allow
the development of new NUMA balancing algorithms that may be able to improve
the decision making in the scheduler of when to move a process to another node
and hopefully will also enable automatic page migration through a user space
program that can analyse the memory load distribution and then rebalance
memory use in order to increase performance.

The counter framework here implements differential counters for each processor
in struct zone.  The differential counters are consolidated when a threshold
is exceeded (like done in the current implementation for nr_pageache), when
slab reaping occurs or when a consolidation function is called.

Consolidation uses atomic operations and accumulates counters per zone in the
zone structure and also globally in the vm_stat array.  VM functions can
access the counts by simply indexing a global or zone specific array.

The arrangement of counters in an array also simplifies processing when output
has to be generated for /proc/*.

Counters can be updated by calling inc/dec_zone_page_state or
_inc/dec_zone_page_state analogous to *_page_state.  The second group of
functions can be called if it is known that interrupts are disabled.

Special optimized increment and decrement functions are provided.  These can
avoid certain checks and use increment or decrement instructions that an
architecture may provide.

We also add a new CONFIG_DMA_IS_NORMAL that signifies that an architecture can
do DMA to all memory and therefore ZONE_NORMAL will not be populated.  This is
only currently set for IA64 SGI SN2 and currently only affects
node_page_state().  In the best case node_page_state can be reduced to
retrieving a single counter for the one zone on the node.

13 years ago[PATCH] zoned vm counters: create vmstat.c/.h from page_alloc.c/.h
Christoph Lameter [Fri, 30 Jun 2006 08:55:32 +0000]
[PATCH] zoned vm counters: create vmstat.c/.h from page_alloc.c/.h

NOTE: ZVC are *not* the lightweight event counters.  ZVCs are reliable whereas
event counters do not need to be.

Zone based VM statistics are necessary to be able to determine what the state
of memory in one zone is.  In a NUMA system this can be helpful for local
reclaim and other memory optimizations that may be able to shift VM load in
order to get more balanced memory use.

It is also useful to know how the computing load affects the memory
allocations on various zones.  This patchset allows the retrieval of that data
from userspace.

The patchset introduces a framework for counters that is a cross between the
existing page_stats --which are simply global counters split per cpu-- and the
approach of deferred incremental updates implemented for nr_pagecache.

Small per cpu 8 bit counters are added to struct zone.  If the counter exceeds
certain thresholds then the counters are accumulated in an array of
atomic_long in the zone and in a global array that sums up all zone values.
The small 8 bit counters are next to the per cpu page pointers and so they
will be in high in the cpu cache when pages are allocated and freed.

Access to VM counter information for a zone and for the whole machine is then
possible by simply indexing an array (Thanks to Nick Piggin for pointing out
that approach).  The access to the total number of pages of various types does
no longer require the summing up of all per cpu counters.

Benefits of this patchset right now:

- Ability for UP and SMP configuration to determine how memory
  is balanced between the DMA, NORMAL and HIGHMEM zones.

- loops over all processors are avoided in writeback and
  reclaim paths. We can avoid caching the writeback information
  because the needed information is directly accessible.

- Special handling for nr_pagecache removed.

- zone_reclaim_interval vanishes since VM stats can now determine
  when it is worth to do local reclaim.

- Fast inline per node page state determination.

- Accurate counters in /sys/devices/system/node/node*/meminfo. Current
  counters are counting simply which processor allocated a page somewhere
  and guestimate based on that. So the counters were not useful to show
  the actual distribution of page use on a specific zone.

- The swap_prefetch patch requires per node statistics in order to
  figure out when processors of a node can prefetch. This patch provides
  some of the needed numbers.

- Detailed VM counters available in more /proc and /sys status files.

faster even.  Tested on ia64/NUMA.  Builds fine on i386, SMP / UP.  Includes
fixes for s390/arm/uml arch code.

This patch:

Move counter code from page_alloc.c/page-flags.h to vmstat.c/h.

Create vmstat.c/vmstat.h by separating the counter code and the proc
functions.

13 years ago[NET]: Add ECN support for TSO
Michael Chan [Thu, 29 Jun 2006 19:30:00 +0000]
[NET]: Add ECN support for TSO

In the current TSO implementation, NETIF_F_TSO and ECN cannot be
turned on together in a TCP connection.  The problem is that most
hardware that supports TSO does not handle CWR correctly if it is set
in the TSO packet.  Correct handling requires CWR to be set in the
first packet only if it is set in the TSO header.

This patch adds the ability to turn on NETIF_F_TSO and ECN using
GSO if necessary to handle TSO packets with CWR set.  Hardware
that handles CWR correctly can turn on NETIF_F_TSO_ECN in the dev->
features flag.

All TSO packets with CWR set will have the SKB_GSO_TCPV4_ECN set.  If
the output device does not have the NETIF_F_TSO_ECN feature set, GSO
will split the packet up correctly with CWR only set in the first
segment.

With help from Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>.

Since ECN can always be enabled with TSO, the SOCK_NO_LARGESEND sock
flag is completely removed.

13 years ago[AF_UNIX]: Datagram getpeersec
Catherine Zhang [Thu, 29 Jun 2006 19:27:47 +0000]
[AF_UNIX]: Datagram getpeersec

This patch implements an API whereby an application can determine the
label of its peer's Unix datagram sockets via the auxiliary data mechanism of
recvmsg.

Patch purpose:

This patch enables a security-aware application to retrieve the
security context of the peer of a Unix datagram socket.  The application
can then use this security context to determine the security context for
processing on behalf of the peer who sent the packet.

Patch design and implementation:

The design and implementation is very similar to the UDP case for INET
sockets.  Basically we build upon the existing Unix domain socket API for
retrieving user credentials.  Linux offers the API for obtaining user
credentials via ancillary messages (i.e., out of band/control messages
that are bundled together with a normal message).  To retrieve the security
context, the application first indicates to the kernel such desire by
setting the SO_PASSSEC option via getsockopt.  Then the application
retrieves the security context using the auxiliary data mechanism.

An example server application for Unix datagram socket should look like this:

toggle = 1;
toggle_len = sizeof(toggle);

setsockopt(sockfd, SOL_SOCKET, SO_PASSSEC, &toggle, &toggle_len);
recvmsg(sockfd, &msg_hdr, 0);
if (msg_hdr.msg_controllen > sizeof(struct cmsghdr)) {
    cmsg_hdr = CMSG_FIRSTHDR(&msg_hdr);
    if (cmsg_hdr->cmsg_len <= CMSG_LEN(sizeof(scontext)) &&
        cmsg_hdr->cmsg_level == SOL_SOCKET &&
        cmsg_hdr->cmsg_type == SCM_SECURITY) {
        memcpy(&scontext, CMSG_DATA(cmsg_hdr), sizeof(scontext));
    }
}

sock_setsockopt is enhanced with a new socket option SOCK_PASSSEC to allow
a server socket to receive security context of the peer.

Testing:

We have tested the patch by setting up Unix datagram client and server
applications.  We verified that the server can retrieve the security context
using the auxiliary data mechanism of recvmsg.

capability parameter and converting all direct usage of eff_caps outside
of the lsm modules to use the interface.  It also updates the SELinux
implementation of the security_netlink_send and security_netlink_recv
hooks to take advantage of the sid in the netlink_skb_params struct.
This also enables SELinux to perform auditing of netlink capability checks.

13 years ago[NET]: Added GSO header verification
Herbert Xu [Tue, 27 Jun 2006 20:22:38 +0000]
[NET]: Added GSO header verification

When GSO packets come from an untrusted source (e.g., a Xen guest domain),
we need to verify the header integrity before passing it to the hardware.

Since the first step in GSO is to verify the header, we can reuse that
code by adding a new bit to gso_type: SKB_GSO_DODGY.  Packets with this
bit set can only be fed directly to devices with the corresponding bit
NETIF_F_GSO_ROBUST.  If the device doesn't have that bit, then the skb
is fed to the GSO engine which will allow the packet to be sent to the
hardware if it passes the header check.

This patch changes the sg flag to a full features flag.  The same method
can be used to implement TSO ECN support.  We simply have to mark packets
with CWR set with SKB_GSO_ECN so that only hardware with a corresponding
NETIF_F_TSO_ECN can accept them.  The GSO engine can either fully segment
the packet, or segment the first MTU and pass the rest to the hardware for
further segmentation.
