Pablo Neira Ayuso [Wed, 22 Mar 2006 21:54:15 +0000]
[NETFILTER]: ctnetlink: Fix expectaction mask dumping

The expectation mask has some particularities that requires a different
handling. The protocol number fields can be set to non-valid protocols,
ie. l3num is set to 0xFFFF. Since that protocol does not exist, the mask
tuple will not be dumped. Moreover, this results in a kernel panic when
nf_conntrack accesses the array of protocol handlers, that is PF_MAX (0x1F)
long.

This patch introduces the function ctnetlink_exp_dump_mask, that correctly
dumps the expectation mask. Such function uses the l3num value from the
expectation tuple that is a valid layer 3 protocol number. The value of the
l3num mask isn't dumped since it is meaningless from the userspace side.

[PATCH] SELinux: add slab cache for inode security struct

Add a slab cache for the SELinux inode security struct, one of which is
allocated for every inode instantiated by the system.

The memory savings are considerable.

On 64-bit, instead of the size-128 cache, we have a slab object of 96
bytes, saving 32 bytes per object.  After booting, I see about 4000 of
these and then about 17,000 after a kernel compile.  With this patch, we
save around 530KB of kernel memory in the latter case.  On 32-bit, the
savings are about half of this.

14 years ago[PATCH] selinux: Disable automatic labeling of new inodes when no policy is loaded
Stephen Smalley [Wed, 22 Mar 2006 08:09:13 +0000]
[PATCH] selinux: Disable automatic labeling of new inodes when no policy is loaded

This patch disables the automatic labeling of new inodes on disk
when no policy is loaded.

Discussion is here:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=180296

In short, we're changing the behavior so that when no policy is loaded,
SELinux does not label files at all.  Currently it does add an 'unlabeled'
label in this case, which we've found causes problems later.

SELinux always maintains a safe internal label if there is none, so with this
patch, we just stick with that and wait until a policy is loaded before adding
a persistent label on disk.

The effect is simply that if you boot with SELinux enabled but no policy
loaded and create a file in that state, SELinux won't try to set a security
extended attribute on the new inode on the disk.  This is the only sane
behavior for SELinux in that state, as it cannot determine the right label to
assign in the absence of a policy.  That state usually doesn't occur, but the
rawhide installer seemed to be misbehaving temporarily so it happened to show
up on a test install.

14 years ago[PATCH] drain_node_pages: interrupt latency reduction / optimization
Christoph Lameter [Wed, 22 Mar 2006 08:09:08 +0000]
[PATCH] drain_node_pages: interrupt latency reduction / optimization

1. Only disable interrupts if there is actually something to free

2. Only dirty the pcp cacheline if we actually freed something.

3. Disable interrupts for each single pcp and not for cleaning
  all the pcps in all zones of a node.

drain_node_pages is called every 2 seconds from cache_reap. This
fix should avoid most disabling of interrupts.

The list_lock also protects the shared array and we call drain_array() with
the shared array.  Therefore we cannot go as far as I wanted to but have to
take the lock in a way so that it also protects the array_cache in
drain_pages.

(Note: maybe we should make the array_cache locking more consistent?  I.e.

for the per cpu arrays?)

Christoph Lameter [Wed, 22 Mar 2006 08:09:05 +0000]
[PATCH] slab: cache_reap(): further reduction in interrupt holdoff

cache_reap takes the l3->list_lock (disabling interrupts) unconditionally
and then does a few checks and maybe does some cleanup.  This patch makes
cache_reap() only take the lock if there is work to do and then the lock is
taken and released for each cleaning action.

The checking of when to do the next reaping is done without any locking and
becomes racy.  Should not matter since reaping can also be skipped if the
slab mutex cannot be acquired.

The same is true for the touched processing.  If we get this wrong once in
awhile then we will mistakenly clean or not clean the shared cache.  This
will impact performance slightly.

Note that the additional drain_array() function introduced here will fall
out in a subsequent patch since array cleaning will now be very similar
from all callers.

Chen, Kenneth W [Wed, 22 Mar 2006 08:09:03 +0000]
[PATCH] optimize follow_hugetlb_page

follow_hugetlb_page() walks a range of user virtual address and then fills
in list of struct page * into an array that is passed from the argument
list.  It also gets a reference count via get_page().  For compound page,
get_page() actually traverse back to head page via page_private() macro and
then adds a reference count to the head page.  Since we are doing a virt to
pte look up, kernel already has a struct page pointer into the head page.
So instead of traverse into the small unit page struct and then follow a
link back to the head page, optimize that with incrementing the reference
count directly on the head page.

The benefit is that we don't take a cache miss on accessing page struct for
the corresponding user address and more importantly, not to pollute the
cache with a "not very useful" round trip of pointer chasing.  This adds a
moderate performance gain on an I/O intensive database transaction
workload.

David Gibson [Wed, 22 Mar 2006 08:09:01 +0000]
[PATCH] hugepage: is_aligned_hugepage_range() cleanup

Quite a long time back, prepare_hugepage_range() replaced
is_aligned_hugepage_range() as the callback from mm/mmap.c to arch code to
verify if an address range is suitable for a hugepage mapping.
is_aligned_hugepage_range() stuck around, but only to implement
prepare_hugepage_range() on archs which didn't implement their own.

Most archs (everything except ia64 and powerpc) used the same
implementation of is_aligned_hugepage_range().  On powerpc, which
implements its own prepare_hugepage_range(), the custom version was never
used.

In addition, "is_aligned_hugepage_range()" was a bad name, because it
suggests it returns true iff the given range is a good hugepage range,
whereas in fact it returns 0-or-error (so the sense is reversed).

This patch cleans up by abolishing is_aligned_hugepage_range().  Instead
prepare_hugepage_range() is defined directly.  Most archs use the default
version, which simply checks the given region is aligned to the size of a
hugepage.  ia64 and powerpc define custom versions.  The ia64 one simply
checks that the range is in the correct address space region in addition to
being suitably aligned.  The powerpc version (just as previously) checks
for suitable addresses, and if necessary performs low-level MMU frobbing to
set up new areas for use by hugepages.

No libhugetlbfs testsuite regressions on ppc64 (POWER5 LPAR).

[PATCH] hugepage: Fix hugepage logic in free_pgtables() harder

Turns out the hugepage logic in free_pgtables() was doubly broken.  The
loop coalescing multiple normal page VMAs into one call to free_pgd_range()
had an off by one error, which could mean it would coalesce one hugepage
VMA into the same bundle (checking 'vma' not 'next' in the loop).  I
transferred this bug into the new is_vm_hugetlb_page() based version.
Here's the fix.

This one didn't bite on powerpc previously for the same reason the
is_hugepage_only_range() problem didn't: powerpc's hugetlb_free_pgd_range()
is identical to free_pgd_range().  It didn't bite on ia64 because the
hugepage region is distant enough from any other region that the separated
PMD_SIZE distance test would always prevent coalescing the two together.

No libhugetlbfs testsuite regressions (ppc64, POWER5).

14 years ago[PATCH] hugepage: Fix hugepage logic in free_pgtables()
David Gibson [Wed, 22 Mar 2006 08:08:57 +0000]
[PATCH] hugepage: Fix hugepage logic in free_pgtables()

free_pgtables() has special logic to call hugetlb_free_pgd_range() instead
of the normal free_pgd_range() on hugepage VMAs.  However, the test it uses
to do so is incorrect: it calls is_hugepage_only_range on a hugepage sized
range at the start of the vma.  is_hugepage_only_range() will return true
if the given range has any intersection with a hugepage address region, and
in this case the given region need not be hugepage aligned.  So, for
example, this test can return true if called on, say, a 4k VMA immediately
preceding a (nicely aligned) hugepage VMA.

At present we get away with this because the powerpc version of
hugetlb_free_pgd_range() is just a call to free_pgd_range().  On ia64 (the
only other arch with a non-trivial is_hugepage_only_range()) we get away
with it for a different reason; the hugepage area is not contiguous with
the rest of the user address space, and VMAs are not permitted in between,
so the test can't return a false positive there.

Nonetheless this should be fixed.  We do that in the patch below by
replacing the is_hugepage_only_range() test with an explicit test of the
VMA using is_vm_hugetlb_page().

This in turn changes behaviour for platforms where is_hugepage_only_range()
returns false always (everything except powerpc and ia64).  We address this
by ensuring that hugetlb_free_pgd_range() is defined to be identical to
free_pgd_range() (instead of a no-op) on everything except ia64.  Even so,
it will prevent some otherwise possible coalescing of calls down to
free_pgd_range().  Since this only happens for hugepage VMAs, removing this
small optimization seems unlikely to cause any trouble.

This patch causes no regressions on the libhugetlbfs testsuite - ppc64
POWER5 (8-way), ppc64 G5 (2-way) and i386 Pentium M (UP).

14 years ago[PATCH] hugepage: Strict page reservation for hugepage inodes
David Gibson [Wed, 22 Mar 2006 08:08:55 +0000]
[PATCH] hugepage: Strict page reservation for hugepage inodes

These days, hugepages are demand-allocated at first fault time.  There's a
somewhat dubious (and racy) heuristic when making a new mmap() to check if
there are enough available hugepages to fully satisfy that mapping.

A particularly obvious case where the heuristic breaks down is where a
process maps its hugepages not as a single chunk, but as a bunch of
individually mmap()ed (or shmat()ed) blocks without touching and
instantiating the pages in between allocations.  In this case the size of
each block is compared against the total number of available hugepages.
It's thus easy for the process to become overcommitted, because each block
mapping will succeed, although the total number of hugepages required by
all blocks exceeds the number available.  In particular, this defeats such
a program which will detect a mapping failure and adjust its hugepage usage
downward accordingly.

The patch below addresses this problem, by strictly reserving a number of
physical hugepages for hugepage inodes which have been mapped, but not
instatiated.  MAP_SHARED mappings are thus "safe" - they will fail on
mmap(), not later with an OOM SIGKILL.  MAP_PRIVATE mappings can still
trigger an OOM.  (Actually SHARED mappings can technically still OOM, but
only if the sysadmin explicitly reduces the hugepage pool between mapping
and instantiation)

This patch appears to address the problem at hand - it allows DB2 to start
correctly, for instance, which previously suffered the failure described
above.

This patch causes no regressions on the libhugetblfs testsuite, and makes a
test (designed to catch this problem) pass which previously failed (ppc64,
POWER5).

14 years ago[PATCH] hugepage: serialize hugepage allocation and instantiation
David Gibson [Wed, 22 Mar 2006 08:08:53 +0000]
[PATCH] hugepage: serialize hugepage allocation and instantiation

Currently, no lock or mutex is held between allocating a hugepage and
inserting it into the pagetables / page cache.  When we do go to insert the
page into pagetables or page cache, we recheck and may free the newly
allocated hugepage.  However, since the number of hugepages in the system
is strictly limited, and it's usualy to want to use all of them, this can
still lead to spurious allocation failures.

For example, suppose two processes are both mapping (MAP_SHARED) the same
hugepage file, large enough to consume the entire available hugepage pool.
If they race instantiating the last page in the mapping, they will both
attempt to allocate the last available hugepage.  One will fail, of course,
returning OOM from the fault and thus causing the process to be killed,
despite the fact that the entire mapping can, in fact, be instantiated.

The patch fixes this race by the simple method of adding a (sleeping) mutex
to serialize the hugepage fault path between allocation and insertion into
pagetables and/or page cache.  It would be possible to avoid the
serialization by catching the allocation failures, waiting on some
condition, then rechecking to see if someone else has instantiated the page
for us.  Given the likely frequency of hugepage instantiations, it seems
very doubtful it's worth the extra complexity.

This patch causes no regression on the libhugetlbfs testsuite, and one
test, which can trigger this race now passes where it previously failed.

Actually, the test still sometimes fails, though less often and only as a
shmat() failure, rather processes getting OOM killed by the VM.  The dodgy
heuristic tests in fs/hugetlbfs/inode.c for whether there's enough hugepage
space aren't protected by the new mutex, and would be ugly to do so, so
there's still a race there.  Another patch to replace those tests with
something saner for this reason as well as others coming...

David Gibson [Wed, 22 Mar 2006 08:08:51 +0000]
[PATCH] hugepage: Small fixes to hugepage clear/copy path

Move the loops used in mm/hugetlb.c to clear and copy hugepages to their
own functions for clarity.  As we do so, we add some checks of need_resched
- we are, after all copying megabytes of memory here.  We also add
might_sleep() accordingly.  We generally dropped locks around the clear and
copy, already but not everyone has PREEMPT enabled, so we should still be
checking explicitly.

For this to work, we need to remove the clear_huge_page() from
alloc_huge_page(), which is called with the page_table_lock held in the COW
path.  We move the clear_huge_page() to just after the alloc_huge_page() in
the hugepage no-page path.  In the COW path, the new page is about to be
copied over, so clearing it was just a waste of time anyway.  So as a side
effect we also fix the fact that we held the page_table_lock for far too
long in this path by calling alloc_huge_page() under it.

It causes no regressions on the libhugetlbfs testsuite (ppc64, POWER5).

  identify of hugetlb pte is lost when changing page protection via mprotect.
  A page fault occurs later will trigger a bug check in huge_pte_alloc().

  The fix is to always make new pte a hugetlb pte and also to clean up
  legacy code where _PAGE_PRESENT is forced on in the pre-faulting day.

As suggested by Marcelo:

1. The optimization introduced recently for not calling
   page_referenced() during zone reclaim makes two additional checks in
   shrink_list unnecessary.

2. The if (unlikely(sc->may_swap)) in refill_inactive_zone is optimized

the subsequent get_page/put_page when doing the mapping and unmapping does not

Move over to the preferred way, that is, using compound pages instead.  This

The patch also changes the behaviour of zone_reclaim() when it falls back to slab shrinking.  Christoph says

  "Setting this to one means that we will rescan and shrink the slab for
  each allocation if we are out of zone memory and RECLAIM_SLAB is set.  Plus
  if we do an order 0 allocation we do not go off node as intended.

  "We better set this to zero.  This means the allocation will go offnode
  despite us having potentially freed lots of memory on the zone.  Future
  allocations can then again be done from this zone."

When on_each_cpu() runs the callback on other CPUs, it runs with local

disabled on this CPU, too.

And do the same for UP, so the callback is run in the same environment on both
UP and SMP.  (strictly it should do preempt_disable() too, but I think
local_irq_disable is sufficiently equivalent).

Also uninlines on_each_cpu().  softirq.c was the most appropriate file I could

SLAB_NO_REAP is documented as an option that will cause this slab not to be
reaped under memory pressure.  However, that is not what happens.  The only
thing that SLAB_NO_REAP controls at the moment is the reclaim of the unused

is run every few seconds independently of memory pressure.

Could we remove the whole thing?  Its only used by three slabs anyways and
I cannot find a reason for having this option.

There is an additional problem with SLAB_NO_REAP.  If set then the recovery
of objects from alien caches is switched off.  Objects not freed on the
same node where they were initially allocated will only be reused if a
certain amount of objects accumulates from one alien node (not very likely)
or if the cache is explicitly shrunk.  (Strangely __cache_shrink does not
check for SLAB_NO_REAP)

Getting rid of SLAB_NO_REAP fixes the problems with alien cache freeing.

[PATCH] kcalloc(): INT_MAX -> ULONG_MAX

Since size_t has the same size as a long on all architectures, it's enough
for overflow checks to check against ULONG_MAX.

This change could allow a compiler better optimization (especially in the
n=1 case).

The practical effect seems to be positive, but quite small:

[PATCH] hugepage allocator cleanup

Insert "fresh" huge pages into the hugepage allocator by the same means as
they are freed back into it.  This reduces code size and allows
enqueue_huge_page to be inlined into the hugepage free fastpath.

Eliminate occurances of hugepages on the free list with non-zero refcount.
This can allow stricter refcount checks in future.  Also required for
lockless pagecache.

Signed-off-by: Nick Piggin <npiggin@suse.de>

"This patch also eliminates a leak "cleaned up" by re-clobbering the

the lockless pagecache, the crucial aspect is to eliminate unconditional
set_page_count() to 0 on pages with potentially nonzero refcounts, though

Nick Piggin [Wed, 22 Mar 2006 08:08:03 +0000]
[PATCH] mm: simplify vmscan vs release refcounting

The VM has an interesting race where a page refcount can drop to zero, but it
is still on the LRU lists for a short time.  This was solved by testing a 0->1
refcount transition when picking up pages from the LRU, and dropping the
refcount in that case.

Instead, use atomic_add_unless to ensure we never pick up a 0 refcount page
from the LRU, thus a 0 refcount page will never have its refcount elevated
until it is allocated again.
