9 years agopps: LinuxPPS clients support
Rodolfo Giometti [Wed, 10 Mar 2010 23:23:45 +0000]
pps: LinuxPPS clients support

Each PPS source can be registered/deregistered into the system by using
special modules called "clients".  They simply define the PPS sources'
attributes and implement the time signal registration mechanism.

This patch adds a special directory for such clients and adds a dummy
client that can be useful to test system integrity on real systems.

9 years agodma-mapping: sparc: unify 32bit and 64bit dma_set_mask
FUJITA Tomonori [Wed, 10 Mar 2010 23:23:35 +0000]
dma-mapping: sparc: unify 32bit and 64bit dma_set_mask

This patchset transforms the PCI DMA API into the generic device model.
It's one of the reasons why we introduced the generic DMA API long ago;
driver writers are always able to use the generic DMA API with any bus
instead of using bus specific DMA APIs such as pci_map_single,
sbus_map_single, etc (only two bus specific APIs exist now; pci and ssb).

Some of the PCI DMA API are already implented on the top of the generic
DMA API (include/asm-generic/pci-dma-compat.h).  But there are some
exceptions.  This patchset finishes the transformation.

This patch:

sparc has two dma_set_mask implementations for 32bit and 64bit.  They are
same except for the error returned value.  We can safely unify them since
the error returned value doesn't matter as long as it is negative (as
DMA-API.txt describes).

This patch also changes dma_set_mask not to call
pci_set_dma_mask. Instead, dma_set_mask does the same thing that
pci_set_dma_mask does. This change enables ut to change
pci_set_dma_mask to call dma_set_mask; we can implement
pci_set_dma_mask as pci-dma-compat.h does.

9 years agopci-dma: add include/linux/pci-dma.h
FUJITA Tomonori [Wed, 10 Mar 2010 23:23:21 +0000]
pci-dma: add include/linux/pci-dma.h

This patch adds include/linux/pci-dma.h that defines the pci_unmap state
API:

DECLARE_PCI_UNMAP_ADDR(ADDR_NAME)
DECLARE_PCI_UNMAP_LEN(LEN_NAME)
pci_unmap_addr(PTR, ADDR_NAME)
pci_unmap_addr_set(PTR, ADDR_NAME, VAL)
pci_unmap_len(PTR, LEN_NAME)
pci_unmap_len_set(PTR, LEN_NAME, VAL)

This enables us to remove lots of the duplication in architecture
implementations since there are only two ways to define the API.

If architectures define CONFIG_NEED_DMA_MAP_STATE, they get the real
definition of pci_unmap state API.  If not, they get the noop definition.

In the long term, it's better to replace the API with the generic device
model API such as DECLARE_DMA_UNMAP_ADDR.  We can map the API to the
generic one (like dma-mapping-compat.h does).  This patch also makes the
migration process easier.  We can remove this file after the migration.

It might be simpler to add the API to include/linux/pci.h but looks it's
already too large.  We'll remove pci-dma.h after finishing moving to the
generic device model.  So I put the API to a separate file.

FUJITA Tomonori [Wed, 10 Mar 2010 23:23:17 +0000]
DMA-API.txt: add dma_sync_single/sg API description

This adds the description of the following eight function:

dma_sync_single_for_cpu
pci_dma_sync_single_for_cpu
dma_sync_single_for_device
pci_dma_sync_single_for_device
dma_sync_sg_for_cpu
pci_dma_sync_sg_for_cpu
dma_sync_sg_for_device
pci_dma_sync_sg_for_device

It was unclear that the API permits a partial sync (some network drivers
already do though).  I made it clear that the sync_single API can do a
partial sync but the sync_sg API can't.

We could do a partial sync with the sync_sg API too, however, it's
difficult for driver writers to correctly use the sync_sg API for a
partial sync since the scatterlists passed in to the mapping API can't be
modified.  It's unlikely that driver writers want to do a partial sync
with the sync_sg API (because the sync_sg API are usually used for block
drivers).  So I think that it's better to forbid a partial sync with the
sync_sg API.

edac: e752x: add dram scrubbing support

Add support to scrub DRAM using the e752x integrated memory scrubbing
engine.  The e7320/7520/e7525 chipsets support scrubbing at one rate while
the i3100 chipset supports a normal and fast rate.

A similar patch was originally sent back in 2008:
http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?thread_name=1204835866.25206.70.camel@localhost.localdomain&forum_name=bluesmoke-devel

This version has the following updates:
- Use 16-bit PCI config cycles to access MCHSCRB register
    e7320/7520/e7525 docs say register is 16bits wide, i3100 says 8.  I
    tested 16bits on the i3100 to be safe.
- Recalcuate and round actual scrub rates

The changes have been tested on an i3100-based board.

edac: mpc85xx improve SDRAM error reporting

Add the ability to detect the specific data line or ECC line which failed
when printing out SDRAM single-bit errors.  An example of a single-bit
SDRAM ECC error is below:

  EDAC MPC85xx MC1: Err Detect Register: 0x80000004
  EDAC MPC85xx MC1: Faulty data bit: 59
  EDAC MPC85xx MC1: Expected Data / ECC:  0x7f80d000_409effa0 / 0x6d
  EDAC MPC85xx MC1: Captured Data / ECC:  0x7780d000_409effa0 / 0x6d
  EDAC MPC85xx MC1: Err addr: 0x00031ca0
  EDAC MPC85xx MC1: PFN: 0x00000031

Knowning which specific data or ECC line caused an error can be useful in
tracking down hardware issues such as improperly terminated signals, loose
pins, etc.

Note that this feature is only currently enabled for 64-bit wide data
buses, 32-bit wide bus support should be added.

I don't have any 32-bit wide systems to test on.  If someone has one and
is willing to give this patch a shot with the check for a 64-bit data bus
removed it would be much appreciated and I can re-submit with both 32 and
64 bit buses supported.

edac: mpc85xx mask ecc syndrome correctly

With a 64-bit wide data bus only the lowest 8-bits of the ECC syndrome are
relevant.  With a 32-bit wide data bus only the lowest 16-bits are
relevant on most architectures.

Without this change, the ECC syndrome displayed can be mildly confusing,
eg:

  EDAC MPC85xx MC1: syndrome: 0x25252525

When in reality the ECC syndrome is 0x25.

A variety of Freescale manuals say a variety of different things about how
to decode the CAPTURE_ECC (syndrome) register.  I don't have a system with
a 32-bit bus to test on, but I believe the change is correct.  It'd be
good to get an ACK from someone at Freescale about this change though.

m32r: use generic ptrace_resume code

Use the generic ptrace_resume code for PTRACE_SYSCALL, PTRACE_CONT,
PTRACE_KILL and PTRACE_SINGLESTEP.  This implies defining
arch_has_single_step in <asm/ptrace.h> and implementing the
user_enable_single_step and user_disable_single_step functions, which also
causes the breakpoint information to be cleared on fork, which could be
considered a bug fix.

Also the TIF_SYSCALL_TRACE thread flag is now cleared on PTRACE_KILL which
it previously wasn't, which is consistent with all architectures using the
modern ptrace code.

The old code only disables the breakpoints on PTRACE_KILL, while after

9 years agocris arch-v32: use generic ptrace_resume code
Christoph Hellwig [Wed, 10 Mar 2010 23:23:00 +0000]
cris arch-v32: use generic ptrace_resume code

Use the generic ptrace_resume code for PTRACE_SYSCALL, PTRACE_CONT,
PTRACE_KILL and PTRACE_SINGLESTEP.  This implies defining
arch_has_single_step in <asm/ptrace.h> and implementing the
user_enable_single_step and user_disable_single_step functions, which also
causes the breakpoint information to be cleared on fork, which could be
considered a bug fix.

Also the TIF_SYSCALL_TRACE thread flag is now cleared on PTRACE_KILL which
it previously wasn't which is consistent with all architectures using the
modern ptrace code.

The way breakpoints are disabled is entirely inconsistent currently, I
tried to make some sense of it, but I suspect all of the content of
ptrace_disable should be moved into user_disable_single_step, this
defintively needs some revisting as the current patch changes behaviour in
not quite designed ways.

9 years agoptrace: move user_enable_single_step & co prototypes to linux/ptrace.h
Christoph Hellwig [Wed, 10 Mar 2010 23:22:46 +0000]
ptrace: move user_enable_single_step & co prototypes to linux/ptrace.h

While in theory user_enable_single_step/user_disable_single_step/
user_enable_blockstep could also be provided as an inline or macro there's
no good reason to do so, and having the prototype in one places keeps code
size and confusion down.

Roland said:

  The original thought there was that user_enable_single_step() et al
  might well be only an instruction or three on a sane machine (as if we
  have any of those!), and since there is only one call site inlining
  would be beneficial.  But I agree that there is no strong reason to care
  about inlining it.

  As to the arch changes, there is only one thought I'd add to the
  record.  It was always my thinking that for an arch where
  PTRACE_SINGLESTEP does text-modifying breakpoint insertion,
  user_enable_single_step() should not be provided.  That is,
  arch_has_single_step()=>true means that there is an arch facility with
  "pure" semantics that does not have any unexpected side effects.
  Inserting a breakpoint might do very unexpected strange things in
  multi-threaded situations.  Aside from that, it is a peculiar side
  effect that user_{enable,disable}_single_step() should cause COW
  de-sharing of text pages and so forth.  For PTRACE_SINGLESTEP, all these
  peculiarities are the status quo ante for that arch, so having
  arch_ptrace() itself do those is one thing.  But for building other
  things in the future, it is nicer to have a uniform "pure" semantics
  that arch-independent code can expect.

  OTOH, all such arch issues are really up to the arch maintainer.  As
  of today, there is nothing but ptrace using user_enable_single_step() et
  al so it's a distinction without a practical difference.  If/when there
  are other facilities that use user_enable_single_step() and might care,
  the affected arch's can revisit the question when someone cares about
  the quality of the arch support for said new facility.

9 years agomemcg: fix oom kill behavior
KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Wed, 10 Mar 2010 23:22:39 +0000]
memcg: fix oom kill behavior

In current page-fault code,

handle_mm_fault()
-> ...
-> mem_cgroup_charge()
-> map page or handle error.
-> check return code.

If page fault's return code is VM_FAULT_OOM, page_fault_out_of_memory() is
called.  But if it's caused by memcg, OOM should have been already
invoked.

Then, I added a patch: a636b327f731143ccc544b966cfd8de6cb6d72c6.  That
patch records last_oom_jiffies for memcg's sub-hierarchy and prevents
page_fault_out_of_memory from being invoked in near future.

But Nishimura-san reported that check by jiffies is not enough when the
system is terribly heavy.

This patch changes memcg's oom logic as.
 * If memcg causes OOM-kill, continue to retry.
 * remove jiffies check which is used now.
 * add memcg-oom-lock which works like perzone oom lock.
 * If current is killed(as a process), bypass charge.

Something more sophisticated can be added but this pactch does
fundamental things.
TODO:
 - add oom notifier
 - add permemcg disable-oom-kill flag and freezer at oom.
 - more chances for wake up oom waiter (when changing memory limit etc..)

9 years agocgroups: fix race between userspace and kernelspace
Kirill A. Shutemov [Wed, 10 Mar 2010 23:22:34 +0000]
cgroups: fix race between userspace and kernelspace

Notify userspace about cgroup removing only after rmdir of cgroup
directory to avoid race between userspace and kernelspace.

eventfd are used to notify about two types of event:
 - control file-specific, like crossing memory threshold;
 - cgroup removing.

To understand what really happen, userspace can check if the cgroup still
exists.  To avoid race beetween userspace and kernelspace we have to
notify userspace about cgroup removing only after rmdir of cgroup
directory.

9 years agomemcg: handle panic_on_oom=always case
KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Wed, 10 Mar 2010 23:22:32 +0000]
memcg: handle panic_on_oom=always case

Presently, if panic_on_oom=2, the whole system panics even if the oom
happend in some special situation (as cpuset, mempolicy....).  Then,
panic_on_oom=2 means painc_on_oom_always.

Now, memcg doesn't check panic_on_oom flag. This patch adds a check.

BTW, how it's useful ?

kdump+panic_on_oom=2 is the last tool to investigate what happens in
oom-ed system.  When a task is killed, the sysytem recovers and there will
be few hint to know what happnes.  In mission critical system, oom should
never happen.  Then, panic_on_oom=2+kdump is useful to avoid next OOM by
knowing precise information via snapshot.

TODO:
 - For memcg, it's for isolate system's memory usage, oom-notiifer and
   freeze_at_oom (or rest_at_oom) should be implemented. Then, management
   daemon can do similar jobs (as kdump) or taking snapshot per cgroup.

9 years agomemcg : share event counter rather than duplicate
KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Wed, 10 Mar 2010 23:22:31 +0000]
memcg : share event counter rather than duplicate

Memcg has 2 eventcountes which counts "the same" event.  Just usages are
different from each other.  This patch tries to reduce event counter.

Now logic uses "only increment, no reset" counter and masks for each
checks.  Softlimit chesk was done per 1000 evetns.  So, the similar check
can be done by !(new_counter & 0x3ff).  Threshold check was done per 100
events.  So, the similar check can be done by (!new_counter & 0x7f)

ALL event checks are done right after EVENT percpu counter is updated.

9 years agomemcg: update threshold and softlimit at commit
KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Wed, 10 Mar 2010 23:22:30 +0000]
memcg: update threshold and softlimit at commit

Presently, move_task does "batched" precharge.  Because res_counter or
css's refcnt are not-scalable jobs for memcg, try_charge_()..  tend to be
done in batched manner if allowed.

Now, softlimit and threshold check their event counter in try_charge, but
the charge is not a per-page event.  And event counter is not updated at
charge().  Moreover, precharge doesn't pass "page" to try_charge() and
softlimit tree will be never updated until uncharge() causes an event."

So the best place to check the event counter is commit_charge().  This is
per-page event by its nature.  This patch move checks to there.

9 years agomemcg: use generic percpu instead of private implementation
KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Wed, 10 Mar 2010 23:22:29 +0000]
memcg: use generic percpu instead of private implementation

When per-cpu counter for memcg was implemneted, dynamic percpu allocator
was not very good.  But now, we have good one and useful macros.  This
patch replaces memcg's private percpu counter implementation with generic
dynamic percpu allocator.

The benefits are
- We can remove private implementation.
- The counters will be NUMA-aware. (Current one is not...)
- This patch makes sizeof struct mem_cgroup smaller. Then,
  struct mem_cgroup may be fit in page size on small config.
        - About basic performance aspects, see below.

 [Before]
 # size mm/memcontrol.o

   61.005373262  seconds time elapsed   ( +-   0.004% )

 Then cache-miss/page fault = 13.14

 [After]
 #size mm/memcontrol.o

   61.004615021  seconds time elapsed   ( +-   0.004% )

  Then cache-miss/page fault = 12.22

 Text size is reduced.
 This performance improvement is not big and will be invisible in real world
 applications. But this result shows this patch has some good effect even
 on (small) SMP.

Here is a test program I used.

 1. fork() processes on each cpus.
 2. do page fault repeatedly on each process.
 3. after 60secs, kill all childredn and exit.

(3 is necessary for getting stable data, this is improvement from previous one.)

9 years agomemcg: implement memory thresholds
Kirill A. Shutemov [Wed, 10 Mar 2010 23:22:24 +0000]
memcg: implement memory thresholds

It allows to register multiple memory and memsw thresholds and gets
notifications when it crosses.

To register a threshold application need:
- create an eventfd;
- open memory.usage_in_bytes or memory.memsw.usage_in_bytes;
- write string like "<event_fd> <memory.usage_in_bytes> <threshold>" to
  cgroup.event_control.

Application will be notified through eventfd when memory usage crosses
threshold in any direction.

It's applicable for root and non-root cgroup.

It uses stats to track memory usage, simmilar to soft limits. It checks
if we need to send event to userspace on every 100 page in/out. I guess
it's good compromise between performance and accuracy of thresholds.

9 years agomemcg: rework usage of stats by soft limit
Kirill A. Shutemov [Wed, 10 Mar 2010 23:22:23 +0000]
memcg: rework usage of stats by soft limit

Instead of incrementing counter on each page in/out and comparing it with
constant, we set counter to constant, decrement counter on each page
in/out and compare it with zero.  We want to make comparing as fast as
possible.  On many RISC systems (probably not only RISC) comparing with
zero is more effective than comparing with a constant, since not every
constant can be immediate operand for compare instruction.

Also, I've renamed MEM_CGROUP_STAT_EVENTS to MEM_CGROUP_STAT_SOFTLIMIT,
since really it's not a generic counter.

This patch:

Introduce the write-only file "cgroup.event_control" in every cgroup.

To register new notification handler you need:
- create an eventfd;
- open a control file to be monitored. Callbacks register_event() and
  unregister_event() must be defined for the control file;
- write "<event_fd> <control_fd> <args>" to cgroup.event_control.
  Interpretation of args is defined by control file implementation;

eventfd will be woken up by control file implementation or when the
cgroup is removed.

To unregister notification handler just close eventfd.

If you need notification functionality for a control file you have to
implement callbacks register_event() and unregister_event() in the
struct cftype.

9 years agomemcg: improve performance in moving swap charge

memcg: improve performance in moving swap charge

Try to reduce overheads in moving swap charge by:

- Adds a new function(__mem_cgroup_put), which takes "count" as a arg and
  decrement mem->refcnt by "count".
- Removed res_counter_uncharge, css_put, and mem_cgroup_put from the path
  of moving swap account, and consolidate all of them into mem_cgroup_clear_mc.
  We cannot do that about mc.to->refcnt.

These changes reduces the overhead from 1.35sec to 0.9sec to move charges
of 1G anonymous memory(including 500MB swap) in my test environment.

9 years agomemcg: move charges of anonymous swap
Daisuke Nishimura [Wed, 10 Mar 2010 23:22:17 +0000]
memcg: move charges of anonymous swap

This patch is another core part of this move-charge-at-task-migration
feature.  It enables moving charges of anonymous swaps.

To move the charge of swap, we need to exchange swap_cgroup's record.

In current implementation, swap_cgroup's record is protected by:

  - page lock: if the entry is on swap cache.
  - swap_lock: if the entry is not on swap cache.

This works well in usual swap-in/out activity.

But this behavior make the feature of moving swap charge check many
conditions to exchange swap_cgroup's record safely.

So I changed modification of swap_cgroup's recored(swap_cgroup_record())
to use xchg, and define a new function to cmpxchg swap_cgroup's record.

This patch also enables moving charge of non pte_present but not uncharged
swap caches, which can be exist on swap-out path, by getting the target
pages via find_get_page() as do_mincore() does.

9 years agomemcg: avoid oom during moving charge
Daisuke Nishimura [Wed, 10 Mar 2010 23:22:16 +0000]
memcg: avoid oom during moving charge

This move-charge-at-task-migration feature has extra charges on
"to"(pre-charges) and "from"(left-over charges) during moving charge.
This means unnecessary oom can happen.

This patch tries to avoid such oom.

9 years agomemcg: improve performance in moving charge
Daisuke Nishimura [Wed, 10 Mar 2010 23:22:15 +0000]
memcg: improve performance in moving charge

Try to reduce overheads in moving charge by:

- Instead of calling res_counter_uncharge() against the old cgroup in
  __mem_cgroup_move_account() everytime, call res_counter_uncharge() at the end
  of task migration once.
- removed css_get(&to->css) from __mem_cgroup_move_account() because callers
  should have already called css_get(). And removed css_put(&to->css) too,
  which was called by callers of move_account on success of move_account.
- Instead of calling __mem_cgroup_try_charge(), i.e. res_counter_charge(),
  repeatedly, call res_counter_charge(PAGE_SIZE * count) in can_attach() if
  possible.
- Instead of calling css_get()/css_put() repeatedly, make use of coalesce
  __css_get()/__css_put() if possible.

These changes reduces the overhead from 1.7sec to 0.6sec to move charges
of 1G anonymous memory in my test environment.

9 years agomemcg: move charges of anonymous page
Daisuke Nishimura [Wed, 10 Mar 2010 23:22:14 +0000]
memcg: move charges of anonymous page

This patch is the core part of this move-charge-at-task-migration feature.
 It implements functions to move charges of anonymous pages mapped only by
the target task.

Implementation:
- define struct move_charge_struct and a valuable of it(mc) to remember the
  count of pre-charges and other information.
- At can_attach(), get anon_rss of the target mm, call __mem_cgroup_try_charge()
  repeatedly and count up mc.precharge.
- At attach(), parse the page table, find a target page to be move, and call
  mem_cgroup_move_account() about the page.
- Cancel all precharges if mc.precharge > 0 on failure or at the end of
  task move.

9 years agomemcg: add interface to move charge at task migration
Daisuke Nishimura [Wed, 10 Mar 2010 23:22:13 +0000]
memcg: add interface to move charge at task migration

In current memcg, charges associated with a task aren't moved to the new
cgroup at task migration.  Some users feel this behavior to be strange.
These patches are for this feature, that is, for charging to the new
cgroup and, of course, uncharging from the old cgroup at task migration.

This patch adds "memory.move_charge_at_immigrate" file, which is a flag
file to determine whether charges should be moved to the new cgroup at
task migration or not and what type of charges should be moved.  This
patch also adds read and write handlers of the file.

This patch also adds no-op handlers for this feature.  These handlers will
be implemented in later patches.  And you cannot write any values other
than 0 to move_charge_at_immigrate yet.

9 years agocgroups: revamp subsys array
Ben Blum [Wed, 10 Mar 2010 23:22:07 +0000]
cgroups: revamp subsys array

This patch series provides the ability for cgroup subsystems to be
compiled as modules both within and outside the kernel tree.  This is
mainly useful for classifiers and subsystems that hook into components
that are already modules.  cls_cgroup and blkio-cgroup serve as the
example use cases for this feature.

It provides an interface cgroup_load_subsys() and cgroup_unload_subsys()
which modular subsystems can use to register and depart during runtime.
The net_cls classifier subsystem serves as the example for a subsystem
which can be converted into a module using these changes.

Patch #1 sets up the subsys[] array so its contents can be dynamic as
modules appear and (eventually) disappear.  Iterations over the array are
modified to handle when subsystems are absent, and the dynamic section of
the array is protected by cgroup_mutex.

Patch #2 implements an interface for modules to load subsystems, called
cgroup_load_subsys, similar to cgroup_init_subsys, and adds a module
pointer in struct cgroup_subsys.

Patch #3 adds a mechanism for unloading modular subsystems, which includes
a more advanced rework of the rudimentary reference counting introduced in
patch 2.

Patch #4 modifies the net_cls subsystem, which already had some module
declarations, to be configurable as a module, which also serves as a
simple proof-of-concept.

Part of implementing patches 2 and 4 involved updating css pointers in
each css_set when the module appears or leaves.  In doing this, it was
discovered that css_sets always remain linked to the dummy cgroup,
regardless of whether or not any subsystems are actually bound to it
(i.e., not mounted on an actual hierarchy).  The subsystem loading and
unloading code therefore should keep in mind the special cases where the
added subsystem is the only one in the dummy cgroup (and therefore all
css_sets need to be linked back into it) and where the removed subsys was
the only one in the dummy cgroup (and therefore all css_sets should be
unlinked from it) - however, as all css_sets always stay attached to the
dummy cgroup anyway, these cases are ignored.  Any fix that addresses this
issue should also make sure these cases are addressed in the subsystem
loading and unloading code.

This patch:

Make subsys[] able to be dynamically populated to support modular
subsystems

This patch reworks the way the subsys[] array is used so that subsystems
can register themselves after boot time, and enables the internals of
cgroups to be able to handle when subsystems are not present or may
appear/disappear.

9 years agocgroup: introduce coalesce css_get() and css_put()
Daisuke Nishimura [Wed, 10 Mar 2010 23:22:05 +0000]
cgroup: introduce coalesce css_get() and css_put()

Current css_get() and css_put() increment/decrement css->refcnt one by
one.

This patch add a new function __css_get(), which takes "count" as a arg
and increment the css->refcnt by "count".  And this patch also add a new
arg("count") to __css_put() and change the function to decrement the
css->refcnt by "count".

These coalesce version of __css_get()/__css_put() will be used to improve
performance of memcg's moving charge feature later, where instead of
calling css_get()/css_put() repeatedly, these new functions will be used.

No change is needed for current users of css_get()/css_put().
