11 years agomemcg: remove redundant message at swapon
KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:57:47 +0000]
memcg: remove redundant message at swapon

It's pointed out that swap_cgroup's message at swapon() is nonsense.
Because

  * It can be calculated very easily if all necessary information is
    written in Kconfig.

  * It's not necessary to annoying people at every swapon().

In other view, now, memory usage per swp_entry is reduced to 2bytes from
8bytes(64bit) and I think it's reasonably small.

11 years agocgroups: use css id in swap cgroup for saving memory v5
KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:57:45 +0000]
cgroups: use css id in swap cgroup for saving memory v5

Try to use CSS ID for records in swap_cgroup.  By this, on 64bit machine,
size of swap_cgroup goes down to 2 bytes from 8bytes.

This means, when 2GB of swap is equipped, (assume the page size is 4096bytes)

From size of swap_cgroup = 2G/4k * 8 = 4Mbytes.
To   size of swap_cgroup = 2G/4k * 2 = 1Mbytes.

Reduction is large.  Of course, there are trade-offs.  This CSS ID will
add overhead to swap-in/swap-out/swap-free.

But in general,
  - swap is a resource which the user tend to avoid use.
  - If swap is never used, swap_cgroup area is not used.
  - Reading traditional manuals, size of swap should be proportional to
    size of memory. Memory size of machine is increasing now.

I think reducing size of swap_cgroup makes sense.

Note:
  - ID->CSS lookup routine has no locks, it's under RCU-Read-Side.
  - memcg can be obsolete at rmdir() but not freed while refcnt from
    swap_cgroup is available.

Changelog v4->v5:
 - reworked on to memcg-charge-swapcache-to-proper-memcg.patch
Changlog ->v4:
 - fixed not configured case.
 - deleted unnecessary comments.
 - fixed NULL pointer bug.
 - fixed message in dmesg.

11 years agomemcg: charge swapcache to proper memcg
Daisuke Nishimura [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:57:43 +0000]
memcg: charge swapcache to proper memcg

memcg_test.txt says at 4.1:

This swap-in is one of the most complicated work. In do_swap_page(),
following events occur when pte is unchanged.

(1) the page (SwapCache) is looked up.
(2) lock_page()
(3) try_charge_swapin()
(4) reuse_swap_page() (may call delete_swap_cache())
(5) commit_charge_swapin()
(6) swap_free().

Considering following situation for example.

(A) The page has not been charged before (2) and reuse_swap_page()
    doesn't call delete_from_swap_cache().
(B) The page has not been charged before (2) and reuse_swap_page()
    calls delete_from_swap_cache().
(C) The page has been charged before (2) and reuse_swap_page() doesn't
    call delete_from_swap_cache().
(D) The page has been charged before (2) and reuse_swap_page() calls
    delete_from_swap_cache().

    memory.usage/memsw.usage changes to this page/swp_entry will be
 Case          (A)      (B)       (C)     (D)
         Event
       Before (2)     0/ 1     0/ 1      1/ 1    1/ 1
          ===========================================
          (3)        +1/+1    +1/+1     +1/+1   +1/+1
          (4)          -       0/ 0       -     -1/ 0
          (5)         0/-1     0/ 0     -1/-1    0/ 0
          (6)          -       0/-1       -      0/-1
          ===========================================
       Result         1/ 1     1/ 1      1/ 1    1/ 1

       In any cases, charges to this page should be 1/ 1.

In case of (D), mem_cgroup_try_get_from_swapcache() returns NULL
(because lookup_swap_cgroup() returns NULL), so "+1/+1" at (3) means
charges to the memcg("foo") to which the "current" belongs.
OTOH, "-1/0" at (4) and "0/-1" at (6) means uncharges from the memcg("baa")
to which the page has been charged.

So, if the "foo" and "baa" is different(for example because of task move),
this charge will be moved from "baa" to "foo".

I think this is an unexpected behavior.

This patch fixes this by modifying mem_cgroup_try_get_from_swapcache()
to return the memcg to which the swapcache has been charged if PCG_USED bit
is set.
IIUC, checking PCG_USED bit of swapcache is safe under page lock.

11 years agomemcg: fix OOM killer under memcg
KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:57:38 +0000]
memcg: fix OOM killer under memcg

This patch tries to fix OOM Killer problems caused by hierarchy.
Now, memcg itself has OOM KILL function (in oom_kill.c) and tries to
kill a task in memcg.

But, when hierarchy is used, it's broken and correct task cannot
be killed. For example, in following cgroup

/groupA/ hierarchy=1, limit=1G,
01 nolimit
02 nolimit
All tasks' memory usage under /groupA, /groupA/01, groupA/02 is limited to
groupA's 1Gbytes but OOM Killer just kills tasks in groupA.

This patch provides makes the bad process be selected from all tasks
under hierarchy. BTW, currently, oom_jiffies is updated against groupA
in above case. oom_jiffies of tree should be updated.

To see how oom_jiffies is used, please check mem_cgroup_oom_called()
callers.

11 years agomemcg: fix shrinking memory to return -EBUSY by fixing retry algorithm
KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:57:36 +0000]
memcg: fix shrinking memory to return -EBUSY by fixing retry algorithm

As pointed out, shrinking memcg's limit should return -EBUSY after
reasonable retries.  This patch tries to fix the current behavior of
shrink_usage.

Before looking into "shrink should return -EBUSY" problem, we should fix
hierarchical reclaim code.  It compares current usage and current limit,
but it only makes sense when the kernel reclaims memory because hit
limits.  This is also a problem.

What this patch does are.

  1. add new argument "shrink" to hierarchical reclaim. If "shrink==true",
     hierarchical reclaim returns immediately and the caller checks the kernel
     should shrink more or not.
     (At shrinking memory, usage is always smaller than limit. So check for
      usage < limit is useless.)

  2. For adjusting to above change, 2 changes in "shrink"'s retry path.
     2-a. retry_count depends on # of children because the kernel visits
  the children under hierarchy one by one.
     2-b. rather than checking return value of hierarchical_reclaim's progress,
  compares usage-before-shrink and usage-after-shrink.
  If usage-before-shrink <= usage-after-shrink, retry_count is
  decremented.

group_A (ID=3)
/01 (ID=4)
   /0A (ID=7)
/02 (ID=10)
group_B (ID=5)
and task in group_A/01/0A hits limit at group_A.

reclaim will be done in following order (round-robin).
group_A(3) -> group_A/01 (4) -> group_A/01/0A (7) -> group_A/02(10)
-> group_A -> .....

Round robin by ID. The last visited cgroup is recorded and restart
from it when it start reclaim again.
(More smart algorithm can be implemented..)

No cgroup_mutex or hierarchy_mutex is required.

11 years agocgroups: don't change release_agent when remount failed
Li Zefan [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:57:30 +0000]
cgroups: don't change release_agent when remount failed

Remount can fail in either case:
  - wrong mount options is specified, or option 'noprefix' is changed.
  - a to-be-added subsys is already mounted/active.

When using remount to change 'release_agent', for the above former failure
case, remount will return errno with release_agent unchanged, but for the
latter case, remount will return EBUSY with relase_agent changed, which is
unexpected I think:

In general. cgroup can be rmdir'd if there are no children groups and
no tasks. Frequent fails of rmdir() is not useful to users.
(And the reason for -EBUSY is unknown to users.....in most cases)

This patch tries to modify above behavior, by
- retries if css_refcnt is got by someone.
- add "return value" to pre_destroy() and allows subsystem to

11 years agocgroup: CSS ID support
KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:57:25 +0000]
cgroup: CSS ID support

Patch for Per-CSS(Cgroup Subsys State) ID and private hierarchy code.

This patch attaches unique ID to each css and provides following.

 - css_lookup(subsys, id)
   returns pointer to struct cgroup_subysys_state of id.
 - css_get_next(subsys, id, rootid, depth, foundid)
   returns the next css under "root" by scanning

When cgroup_subsys->use_id is set, an id for css is maintained.

The cgroup framework only parepares
- css_id of root css for subsys
- id is automatically attached at creation of css.
- id is *not* freed automatically. Because the cgroup framework
  don't know lifetime of cgroup_subsys_state.
  free_css_id() function is provided. This must be called by subsys.

There are several reasons to develop this.
- Saving space .... For example, memcg's swap_cgroup is array of
  pointers to cgroup. But it is not necessary to be very fast.
  By replacing pointers(8bytes per ent) to ID (2byes per ent), we can
  reduce much amount of memory usage.

- Scanning without lock.
  CSS_ID provides "scan id under this ROOT" function. By this, scanning
  css under root can be written without locks.
  ex)
  do {
rcu_read_lock();
next = cgroup_get_next(subsys, id, root, &found);
/* check sanity of next here */
css_tryget();
rcu_read_unlock();
id = found + 1
 } while(...)

Characteristics:
- Each css has unique ID under subsys.
- Lifetime of ID is controlled by subsys.
- css ID contains "ID" and "Depth in hierarchy" and stack of hierarchy
- Allowed ID is 1-65535, ID 0 is UNUSED ID.

Design Choices:
- scan-by-ID v.s. scan-by-tree-walk.
  As /proc's pid scan does, scan-by-ID is robust when scanning is done
  by following kind of routine.
  scan -> rest a while(release a lock) -> conitunue from interrupted
  memcg's hierarchical reclaim does this.

- When subsys->use_id is set, # of css in the system is limited to
  65535.

Grzegorz Nosek [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:57:23 +0000]
cgroups: relax ns_can_attach checks to allow attaching to grandchild cgroups

The ns_proxy cgroup allows moving processes to child cgroups only one
level deep at a time.  This commit relaxes this restriction and makes it
possible to attach tasks directly to grandchild cgroups, e.g.:

($pid is in the root cgroup)
echo $pid > /cgroup/CG1/CG2/tasks

Previously this operation would fail with -EPERM and would have to be
performed as two steps:
echo $pid > /cgroup/CG1/tasks
echo $pid > /cgroup/CG1/CG2/tasks

Also, the target cgroup no longer needs to be empty to move a task there.

11 years agoext3: avoid false EIO errors
Jan Kara [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:57:17 +0000]
ext3: avoid false EIO errors

Sometimes block_write_begin() can map buffers in a page but later we
fail to copy data into those buffers (because the source page has been
paged out in the mean time).  We then end up with !uptodate mapped
buffers.  To add a bit more to the confusion, block_write_end() does
not commit any data (and thus does not any mark buffers as uptodate) if
we didn't succeed with copying all the data.

Commit f4fc66a894546bdc88a775d0e83ad20a65210bcb (ext3: convert to new
aops) missed these cases and thus we were inserting non-uptodate
buffers to transaction's list which confuses JBD code and it reports IO
errors, aborts a transaction and generally makes users afraid about
their data ;-P.

This patch fixes the problem by reorganizing ext3_..._write_end() code
to first call block_write_end() to mark buffers with valid data
uptodate and after that we file only uptodate buffers to transaction's
lists.

We also fix a problem where we could leave blocks allocated beyond i_size
(i_disksize in fact) because of failed write. We now add inode to orphan
list when write fails (to be safe in case we crash) and then truncate blocks
beyond i_size in a separate transaction.

11 years agoext3: return -EIO not -ESTALE on directory traversal through deleted inode
Bryan Donlan [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:57:15 +0000]
ext3: return -EIO not -ESTALE on directory traversal through deleted inode

ext3_iget() returns -ESTALE if invoked on a deleted inode, in order to
report errors to NFS properly.  However, in ext[234]_lookup(), this
-ESTALE can be propagated to userspace if the filesystem is corrupted such
that a directory entry references a deleted inode.  This leads to a
misleading error message - "Stale NFS file handle" - and confusion on the
part of the admin.

The bug can be easily reproduced by creating a new filesystem, making a
link to an unused inode using debugfs, then mounting and attempting to ls
-l said link.

This patch thus changes ext3_lookup to return -EIO if it receives -ESTALE
from ext3_iget(), as ext3 does for other filesystem metadata corruption;
and also invokes the appropriate ext*_error functions when this case is
detected.

memory_accessor: new interface for reading/writing persistent memory

Add an interface by which other kernel code can read/write persistent
memory such as I2C or SPI EEPROMs, or devices which provide NVRAM.  Use
cases include storage of board-specific configuration data like Ethernet
addresses and sensor calibrations.

Original idea, review and improvement suggestions by David Brownell.

11 years agoworkqueue: add to_delayed_work() helper function
Jean Delvare [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:56:54 +0000]
workqueue: add to_delayed_work() helper function

It is a fairly common operation to have a pointer to a work and to need a
pointer to the delayed work it is contained in.  In particular, all
delayed works which want to rearm themselves will have to do that.  So it
would seem fair to offer a helper function for this operation.

The missing device table means that the floppy module is not auto-loaded,
even when the appropriate PNP device (0700) is found.

We don't actually use the table in the module, since the device doesn't
have a struct pnp_driver, but it's sufficient to cause an alias in the

11 years agomm: define a UNIQUE value for AS_UNEVICTABLE flag
Lee Schermerhorn [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:56:45 +0000]
mm: define a UNIQUE value for AS_UNEVICTABLE flag

A new "address_space flag"--AS_MM_ALL_LOCKS--was defined to use the next
available AS flag while the Unevictable LRU was under development.  The
Unevictable LRU was using the same flag and "no one" noticed.  Current
mainline, since 2.6.28, has same value for two symbolic flag names.

So, define a unique flag value for AS_UNEVICTABLE--up close to the other
flags, [at the cost of an additional #ifdef] so we'll notice next time.
Note that #ifdef is not actually required, if we don't mind having the
unused flag value defined.

Replace #defines with an enum.

11 years agowriteback: guard against jiffies wraparound on inode->dirtied_when checks (try #3)
Jeff Layton [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:56:37 +0000]
writeback: guard against jiffies wraparound on inode->dirtied_when checks (try #3)

The dirtied_when value on an inode is supposed to represent the first time
that an inode has one of its pages dirtied.  This value is in units of
jiffies.  It's used in several places in the writeback code to determine
when to write out an inode.

The problem is that these checks assume that dirtied_when is updated
periodically.  If an inode is continuously being used for I/O it can be
persistently marked as dirty and will continue to age.  Once the time
compared to is greater than or equal to half the maximum of the jiffies
type, the logic of the time_*() macros inverts and the opposite of what is
needed is returned.  On 32-bit architectures that's just under 25 days
(assuming HZ == 1000).

As the least-recently dirtied inode, it'll end up being the first one that
pdflush will try to write out.  sync_sb_inodes does this check:

/* Was this inode dirtied after sync_sb_inodes was called? */
  if (time_after(inode->dirtied_when, start))
  break;

...but now dirtied_when appears to be in the future.  sync_sb_inodes bails
out without attempting to write any dirty inodes.  When this occurs,
pdflush will stop writing out inodes for this superblock.  Nothing can
unwedge it until jiffies moves out of the problematic window.

This patch fixes this problem by changing the checks against dirtied_when
to also check whether it appears to be in the future.  If it does, then we
consider the value to be far in the past.

This should shrink the problematic window of time to such a small period
(30s) as not to matter.

vfs: skip I_CLEAR state inodes

clear_inode() will switch inode state from I_FREEING to I_CLEAR, and do so
_outside_ of inode_lock.  So any I_FREEING testing is incomplete without a

So add I_CLEAR tests to drop_pagecache_sb(), generic_sync_sb_inodes() and
add_dquot_ref().

 (2) Report vma->vm_pgoff * PAGE_SIZE as a 64-bit value, not a 32-bit value,
     lest it overflow.

 (3) Move the allocation of the vm_area_struct slab back for fork.c.

 (4) Use KMEM_CACHE() for both vm_area_struct and vm_region slabs.

 (5) Use BUG_ON() rather than if () BUG().

 (6) Make the default validate_nommu_regions() a static inline rather than a
     #define.

 (7) Make free_page_series()'s objection to pages with a refcount != 1 more
     informative.

 (8) Adjust the __put_nommu_region() banner comment to indicate that the

 (9) Limit the number of warnings about munmaps of non-mmapped regions.

11 years agoefifb: dmi set video type
Brian Maly [Tue, 31 Mar 2009 22:25:50 +0000]
efifb: dmi set video type

The current logic for dmi matching in efifb does not allow efifb to load
on all hardware that we can dmi match for.

For a real world example, boot with elilo (3.7 or 3.8 vanilla) and on a
Apple (MacBook) and EFI framebuffer driver will not load (you will have no
video).  This specific hardware is efi v1.10, so we have UGA and not GOP.
Without special bootloader magic (i.e.  extra elilo patches for UGA
graphics detection) no screen info will be passed to the kernel and as a
result efifb will not load.

This patch allows the dmi match to happen by moving it to earlier in
efifb_init, and sets the video type (in set_system) so that efifb can load
when we have a valid dmi match and already know the specifics of the
hardware.

Without this patch the efifb driver will fail to load in the event screen
info is not found and passed in by the bootloader, being that we will
never get to look for a dmi match.  A primary reason for matching with dmi
is because not all bootloaders detect the video info properly.  The
solution is that in the event of a dmi match, we should set
screen_info.orig_video_isVGA.  Most bootloaders fail to set screen info on
Apple hardware, and this is a big problem for people who use Apple
hardware.

Tested on a MacBook SantaRosa with elilo-3.8 (vanilla) and resolves the
issue, the dmi match now works, EFI framebuffer now loads and video works.

11 years agouvesafb: fix selecting mode with the vbemode option

uvesafb: fix selecting mode with the vbemode option

If the vbemode option is used, uvesafb calls fb_get_mode() without first
setting the resolution in info->var.  This results in a division by zero
in fb_get_mode(), as evidenced e.g.  in [1].  Fix this by ensuring the
info->var structure is populated before fb_get_mode() is called.

11 years agofbdev: remove cyblafb driver
Krzysztof Helt [Tue, 31 Mar 2009 22:25:40 +0000]
fbdev: remove cyblafb driver

A tridentfb driver has all the functionality of the cyblafb driver without
the bugs of the latter.

Changes to the tridentfb driver:

- FBINFO_READS_FAST added to the tridentfb.  The cyblafb used a blitter
  for scrolling which is faster than color expansion on Cyberblade
  chipsets.  The blitter is slower on a discrete Blade3D core.  Use the
  blitter for scrolling in the tridentfb only for integrated Blade3D
  cores.  Now, scrolling speed is about equal for the tridentfb and the
  cyblafb.

- a copyright notice addition is done on request of Jani Monoses (the
  first author of the tridentfb).

Tested on AGP Blade3D card and PCChips
M787CLR motherboard: VIA C3 cpu +
VT8601 north  bridge (aka Cyberblade/i1).

11 years agofbdev: update s1d13xxxfb to differ between revisions and production ids
Kristoffer Ericson [Tue, 31 Mar 2009 22:25:31 +0000]
fbdev: update s1d13xxxfb to differ between revisions and production ids

The s1d13xxx chip provides two values of identification value: the
Production id (e.g 13506/13505/13806..) and a revision number 0,1,2,3).
Together these can help us to differentiate between similiar setups.

This patch adds the proper way of grabbing both those values and save them
for future reference (in order to decide what functions a card supports,
e.g acceleration).

We also move away from the concept of all s1d13xxx = s1d13806 when we
really support alot more.
