10 years agopids: clean up find_task_by_pid variants

pids: clean up find_task_by_pid variants

find_task_by_pid_type_ns is only used to implement find_task_by_vpid and
find_task_by_pid_ns, but both of them pass PIDTYPE_PID as first argument.
So just fold find_task_by_pid_type_ns into find_task_by_pid_ns and use
find_task_by_pid_ns to implement find_task_by_vpid.

While we're at it also remove the exports for find_task_by_pid_ns and
find_task_by_vpid - we don't have any modular callers left as the only
modular caller of he old pre pid namespace find_task_by_pid (gfs2) was
switched to pid_task which operates on a struct pid pointer instead of a
pid_t.  Given the confusion about pid_t values vs namespace that's
generally the better option anyway and I think we're better of restricting
modules to do it that way.

migration_call() can set ->should_stop and forget about this thread.  But

10 years agokthreads: rework kthread_stop()
Oleg Nesterov [Wed, 17 Jun 2009 23:27:45 +0000]
kthreads: rework kthread_stop()

Based on Eric's patch which in turn was based on my patch.

kthread_stop() has the nasty problems:

- it runs unpredictably long with the global semaphore held.

- it deadlocks if kthread itself does kthread_stop() before it obeys
  the kthread_should_stop() request.

- it is not useable if kthread exits on its own, see for example the
  ugly "wait_to_die:" hack in migration_thread()

- it is not possible to just tell kthread it should stop, we must always
  wait for its exit.

With this patch kthread() allocates all neccesary data (struct kthread) on
its own stack, globals kthread_stop_xxx are deleted.  ->vfork_done is used
as a pointer into "struct kthread", this means kthread_stop() can easily
wait for kthread's exit.

kthreads: simplify the startup synchronization

We use two completions two create the kernel thread, this is a bit ugly.
kthread() wakes up create_kthread() via ->started, then create_kthread()
wakes up the caller kthread_create() via ->done.  But kthread() does not
need to wait for kthread(), it can just return.  Instead kthread() itself
can wake up the caller of kthread_create().

Kill kthread_create_info->started, ->done is enough.  This improves the
scalability a bit and sijmplifies the code.

The only problem if kernel_thread() fails, in that case create_kthread()
must do complete(&create->done).

(finish_stop/ptrace_stop), we can miss the wakeup if __wake_up_parent()

10 years agoptrace: do not use task_lock() for attach
Oleg Nesterov [Wed, 17 Jun 2009 23:27:33 +0000]
ptrace: do not use task_lock() for attach

Remove the "Nasty, nasty" lock dance in ptrace_attach()/ptrace_traceme() -
from now task_lock() has nothing to do with ptrace at all.

With the recent changes nobody uses task_lock() to serialize with ptrace,
but in fact it was never needed and it was never used consistently.

However ptrace_attach() calls __ptrace_may_access() and needs task_lock()
to pin task->mm for get_dumpable().  But we can call __ptrace_may_access()
before we take tasklist_lock, ->cred_exec_mutex protects us against
do_execve() path which can change creds and MMF_DUMP* flags.

(ugly, but we can't use ptrace_may_access() because it hides the error
code, so we have to take task_lock() and use __ptrace_may_access()).

NOTE: this change assumes that LSM hooks, security_ptrace_may_access() and
security_ptrace_traceme(), can be called without task_lock() held.

ptrace_attach() and ptrace_traceme() are the last functions which look as
if the untraced task can have task->ptrace != 0, this must not be
possible.  Change the code to just check ->ptrace != 0 and s/|=/=/ to set
PT_PTRACED.

Also, a couple of trivial whitespace cleanups in ptrace_attach().

Oleg Nesterov [Wed, 17 Jun 2009 23:27:31 +0000]
ptrace: ptrace_attach: check PF_KTHREAD + exit_state instead of ->mm

- Add PF_KTHREAD check to prevent attaching to the kernel thread
  with a borrowed ->mm.

  With or without this change we can race with daemonize() which
  can set PF_KTHREAD or clear ->mm after ptrace_attach() does the
  check, but this doesn't matter because reparent_to_kthreadd()
  does ptrace_unlink().

- Kill "!task->mm" check. We don't really care about ->mm != NULL,
  and the task can call exit_mm() right after we drop task_lock().
  What we need is to make sure we can't attach after exit_notify(),
  check task->exit_state != 0 instead.

Also, move the "already traced" check down for cosmetic reasons.

A user can set memcg.limit_in_bytes == memcg.memsw.limit_in_bytes when the

not very interested in memory usage itself.  In this case, swap-out will
be done only by global-LRU.

But, under current implementation, memory.limit_in_bytes is checked at
first and try_to_free_page() may do swap-out.  But, that swap-out is
useless for memsw.limit_in_bytes and the thread may hit limit again.

This patch tries to fix the current behavior at memory.limit ==
memsw.limit case.  And documentation is updated to explain the behavior of
this special case.

memcg: fix swap accounting

This patch fixes mis-accounting of swap usage in memcg.

In the current implementation, memcg's swap account is uncharged only when
swap is completely freed.  But there are several cases where swap cannot
be freed cleanly.  For handling that, this patch changes that memcg
uncharges swap account when swap has no references other than cache.

By this, memcg's swap entry accounting can be fully synchronous with the
application's behavior.

This patch also changes memcg's hooks for swap-out.

10 years agocgroups: forbid noprefix if mounting more than just cpuset subsystem
Li Zefan [Wed, 17 Jun 2009 23:26:33 +0000]
cgroups: forbid noprefix if mounting more than just cpuset subsystem

The 'noprefix' option was introduced for backwards-compatibility of
cpuset, but actually it can be used when mounting other subsystems.

This results in possibility of name collision, and now the collision can
really happen, because we have 'stat' file in both memory and cpuacct
subsystem:

# mount -t cgroup -o noprefix,memory,cpuacct xxx /mnt

Cgroup will happily mount the 2 subsystems, but only 'stat' file of memory
subsys can be seen.

We don't want users to use nopreifx, and also want to avoid name
collision, so we change to allow noprefix only if mounting just the cpuset
subsystem.

which, in addition to being ugly, end up causing compiler warnings with
gcc 4.4.0.  Previous compilers didn't issue a warning.

fs/reiserfs/do_balan.c:1273: warning: operation on `aux_ih' may be undefined
fs/reiserfs/lbalance.c:393: warning: operation on `ih' may be undefined

fs/reiserfs/lbalance.c:777: warning: operation on `ih' may be undefined

I believe this is due to the ih being passed to macros which evaluate the
argument more than once.  This is old code and we haven't seen any
problems with it, but this patch eliminates the warnings.

It converts the multiple evaluation macros to static inlines and does a
preassignment for the cases that were causing the warnings because that
code is just ugly.

So far, permissions set via 'mode' and/or 'dmode' mount options were
effective only if the medium had no rock ridge extensions (or was mounted

ext3: make sure inode is deleted from orphan list after truncate

As Ted pointed out, it can happen that ext3_truncate() returns without
removing inode from orphan list.  This way we could in some rare cases
(like when we get ENOMEM from an allocation in ext3_truncate called
because of failed ext3_write_begin) leave the inode on orphan list and
that triggers assertion failure on umount.

So make ext3_truncate() always remove inode from in-memory orphan list.

Jan Kara [Wed, 17 Jun 2009 23:26:20 +0000]
ext2: Do not update mtime of a moved directory

One of our users is complaining that his backup tool is upset on ext2
(while it's happy on ext3, xfs, ...) because of the mtime change.

The problem is:

    mkdir foo
    mkdir bar
    mkdir foo/a

Now under ext2:
    mv foo/a foo/b

changes mtime of 'foo/a' (foo/b after the move).  That does not really
make sense and it does not happen under any other filesystem I've seen.

More complicated is:
    mv foo/a bar/a

This changes mtime of foo/a (bar/a after the move) and it makes some
sense since we had to update parent directory pointer of foo/a.  But
again, no other filesystem does this.  So after some thoughts I'd vote
for consistency and change ext2 to behave the same as other filesystems.

Do not update mtime of a moved directory.  Specs don't say anything
about it (neither that it should, nor that it should not be updated) and
other common filesystems (ext3, ext4, xfs, reiserfs, fat, ...) don't do
it.  So let's become more consistent.

Wolfgang Grandegger [Wed, 17 Jun 2009 23:26:11 +0000]
rtc: add stand-alone driver for RX8025 chip

Add support for the Epson RX-8025SA/NB RTC chips.  It includes support for
alarms, periodic interrupts (1 Hz) and clock precision adjustment.

For clock precision adjustment, the SYSFS file "clock_adjust_ppb" gets
created in "/sys/class/rtc/rtcX/device".  It permits to set and get the
clock adjustment in ppb (parts per billion), e.g.:

  # echo -183000 > /sys/class/rtc/rtc0/device/clock_adjust_ppb
  # cat /sys/class/rtc/rtc0/device/clock_adjust_ppb
  -183000

This allows to compensate temperature dependent clock drifts.  According
to the RX8025 SA/NB application manual the frequency and temperature
characteristics can be approximated using the following equation:

  df = a * (ut - t)**2

  df: Frequency deviation in any temperature
  a : Coefficient = (-35 +-5) * 10**-9

The nvram size is not the same for all types of ds174x.  The nvram size is
accessible as the file size of the nvram attribute in sysfs.  With only a

type of ds174x is present on a system.  See the comment in the removed

This patch have been tested with linux-2.6.28 and linux-2.6.29-rc5/6 on a

10 years agoepoll: fix nested calls support
Davide Libenzi [Wed, 17 Jun 2009 23:25:58 +0000]
epoll: fix nested calls support

This fixes a regression in 2.6.30.

I unfortunately accepted a patch time ago, to drop the "current" usage
from possible IRQ context, w/out proper thought over it.  The patch
switched to using the CPU id by bounding the nested call callback with a
get_cpu()/put_cpu().

Unfortunately the ep_call_nested() function can be called with a callback
that grabs sleepy locks (from own f_op->poll()), that results in epic
fails.  The following patch uses the proper "context" depending on the
path where it is called, and on the kind of callback.

This has been reported by Stefan Richter, that has also verified the patch
is his previously failing environment.

Export statistics for softirq in /proc/softirqs and /proc/stat.

1. /proc/softirqs
Implement /proc/softirqs which shows the number of softirq
for each CPU like /proc/interrupts.

2. /proc/stat
Add the "softirq" line to /proc/stat.
This line shows the number of softirq for all cpu.
The first column is the total of all softirqs and
each subsequent column is the total for particular softirq.

10 years agosoftirq: introduce statistics for softirq
Keika Kobayashi [Wed, 17 Jun 2009 23:25:52 +0000]
softirq: introduce statistics for softirq

Statistics for softirq doesn't exist.
It will be helpful like statistics for interrupts.
This patch introduces counting the number of softirq,
which will be exported in /proc/softirqs.

When softirq handler consumes much CPU time,
/proc/stat is like the following.

$ while :; do  cat /proc/stat | head -n1 ; sleep 10 ; done
cpu  88 0 408 739665 583 28 2 0 0
cpu  450 0 1090 740970 594 28 1294 0 0
                              ^^^^
                             softirq

In such a situation,
/proc/softirqs shows us which softirq handler is invoked.
We can see the increase rate of softirqs.

<before>
$ cat /proc/softirqs
                CPU0       CPU1       CPU2       CPU3

RCU             3505       2948       3947       3673

When CPU TIME of softirq is high,
the rates of increase is the following.
  TIMER  : 220/sec     : CPU1-3
  NET_TX : 5/sec       : CPU0
  NET_RX : 120/sec     : CPU0
  SCHED  : 40-200/sec  : all CPU
  RCU    : 45-58/sec   : all CPU

The rates of increase in an idle mode is the following.
  TIMER  : 250/sec
  SCHED  : 250/sec
  RCU    : 2/sec

It seems many softirqs for receiving packets and rcu are invoked.  This
gives us help for checking system.

ia64 was assigning resources to root busses after allocations had
been made for child busses.  Calling pcibios_setup_root_windows() from
pcibios_fixup_bus() solves this problem by assigning the resources to
the root bus before child busses are scanned.
