Zach Brown [Mon, 14 Nov 2005 00:07:33 +0000]
[PATCH] aio: remove kioctx from mm_struct

Sync iocbs have a life cycle that don't need a kioctx.  Their retrying, if
any, is done in the context of their owner who has allocated them on the
stack.

The sole user of a sync iocb's ctx reference was aio_complete() checking for
an elevated iocb ref count that could never happen.  No path which grabs an
iocb ref has access to sync iocbs.

If we were to implement sync iocb cancelation it would be done by the owner of
the iocb using its on-stack reference.

Removing this chunk from aio_complete allows us to remove the entire kioctx
instance from mm_struct, reducing its size by a third.  On a i386 testing box
the slab size went from 768 to 504 bytes and from 5 to 8 per page.

14 years ago[PATCH] stop_machine() vs. synchronous IPI send deadlock
Kirill Korotaev [Mon, 14 Nov 2005 00:07:30 +0000]
[PATCH] stop_machine() vs. synchronous IPI send deadlock

This fixes deadlock of stop_machine() vs.  synchronous IPI send.  The
problem is that stop_machine() disables interrupts before disabling
preemption on other CPUs.  So if another CPU is preempted and then calls
something like flush_tlb_all() it will deadlock with CPU doing
stop_machine() and which can't process IPI due to disabled IRQs.

I changed stop_machine() to do the same things exactly as it does on other
CPUs, i.e.  it should disable preemption first on _all_ CPUs including
itself and only after that disable IRQs.

Paolo 'Blaisorblade' Giarrusso [Mon, 14 Nov 2005 00:07:13 +0000]
[PATCH] uml: fix access_ok

The access_ok_tt() macro is bogus, in that a read access is unconditionally
considered valid.

I couldn't find in SCM logs the introduction of this check, but I went back to
2.4.20-1um and the definition was the same.

Possibly this was done to avoid problems with missing set_fs() calls, but
there can't be any I think because they would fail with SKAS mode.
TT-specific code is still to check.

Also, this patch joins common code together, and makes the "address range
wrapping" check happen for all cases, rather than for only some.

This may, possibly, be reoptimized at some time, but the current code doesn't
seem clever, just confused.

* Important: I've also had to change references to access_ok_{tt,skas} back to
  access_ok - the kernel wasn't that happy otherwise.

[PATCH] uml: fix mcast network driver error handling

printk clears the host errno (I verified this in debugging and it's reasonable
enough, given that it ends via a write call on some fd, especially since
printk() goes on /dev/tty0 which is often the host stdout).  So save errno
earlier.  There's no reason to change the printk calls to use -err rather than
errno - the assignment can't clear errno.

And in the first failure path, we used to return 0 too (and this time more
clearly), which is totally wrong.  0 is a success fd, which is then registered
and gives a "registering fd twice" warning.

Finally, fix up some whitespace.

[PATCH] uml: remove bogus WARN_ON, triggerable harmlessly on a page fault race

The below warning was added in place of pte_mkyoung(); if (is_write)
pte_mkdirty();

In fact, if the PTE is not marked young/dirty, our dirty/accessed bit
emulation would cause the TLB permission not to be changed, and so we'd loop,
and given we don't support preemption yet, we'd busy-hang here.

However, I've seen this warning trigger without crashes during a loop of
concurrent kernel builds, at random times (i.e. like a race condition), and I
realized that two concurrent faults on the same page, one on read and one on
write, can trigger it. The read fault gets serviced and the PTE gets marked
writable but clean (it's possible on a shared-writable mapping), while the
generic code sees the PTE was already installed and returns without action. In
this case, we'll see another fault and service it normally.

tag files all time, so by default index the underlying subarch headers too.
Btw, it adds negligible space to the tags file (less than 1M surely, IIRC it
was around 500k over 40M).

Finally, preserve the ALLSOURCE_ARCHS command line option (I hope) - if it is

Roman Zippel [Mon, 14 Nov 2005 00:06:59 +0000]
[PATCH] m68k: convert thread flags to use bit fields

Remove task_work structure, use the standard thread flags functions and use
shifts in entry.S to test the thread flags.  Add a few local labels to entry.S
to allow gas to generate short jumps.

Finally it changes a number of inline functions in thread_info.h to macros to
delay the current_thread_info() usage, which requires on m68k a structure
(task_struct) not yet defined at this point.

new helper - task_thread_info(task).  On platforms that have thread_info
allocated separately (i.e.  in default case) it simply returns
task->thread_info.  m68k wants (and for good reasons) to embed its thread_info
into task_struct.  So it will (in later patch) have task_thread_info() of its
own.  For now we just add a macro for generic case and convert existing
instances of its body in core kernel to uses of new macro.  Obviously safe -
all normal architectures get the same preprocessor output they used to get.

[PATCH] x86: fix cpu_khz with clock=pit

Fix http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5546

The cpu_khz global is not initialized and remains 0 if you boot with
clock=pit, even if the processor does have a TSC.  This may have bad
ramifications since the variable is used in various places scattered around
the kernel, though I didn't check them all to see if they can tolerate cpu_khz
= 0.  You can observe the problem by doing "cat /proc/cpuinfo"; the cpu MHz
line says 0.000.

The fix is trivial; call init_cpu_khz() from init_pit(), just as it's called
from the timers/timer_foo.c:init_foo() for other values of foo.

[PATCH] mm: ZAP_BLOCK causes redundant work

The address based work estimate for unmapping (for lockbreak) is and always
was horribly inefficient for sparse mappings.  The problem is most simply
explained with an example:

If we find a pgd is clear, we still have to call into unmap_page_range
PGDIR_SIZE / ZAP_BLOCK_SIZE times, each time checking the clear pgd, in
order to progress the working address to the next pgd.

The fundamental way to solve the problem is to keep track of the end
address we've processed and pass it back to the higher layers.

From: Nick Piggin <npiggin@suse.de>

  Modification to completely get away from address based work estimate
  and instead use an abstract count, with a very small cost for empty
  entries as opposed to present pages.

  On 2.6.14-git2, ppc64, and CONFIG_PREEMPT=y, mapping and unmapping 1TB
  of virtual address space takes 1.69s; with the following patch applied,
  this operation can be done 1000 times in less than 0.01s

From: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org>

With CONFIG_HUTETLB_PAGE=n:

[PATCH] reorder struct files_struct

The file_lock spinlock sits close to mostly read fields of 'struct
files_struct'

In SMP (and NUMA) environments, each time a thread wants to open or close
a file, it has to acquire the spinlock, thus invalidating the cache line
containing this spinlock on other CPUS.  So other threads doing
read()/write()/...  calls that use RCU to access the file table are going
to ask further memory (possibly NUMA) transactions to read again this
memory line.

Move the spinlock to another cache line, so that concurrent threads can
share the cache line containing 'count' and 'fdt' fields.

It's worth up to 9% on a microbenchmark using a 4-thread 2-package x86
machine.  See

We had similar problems with other ioctls where userspace did things
like that.  What we did there was to put the compat handler to generic
code.  The patch below does that, adding a big comment about what's
going on and removing the COMPAT_IOCTL entires for these on powerpc
that not only weren't ever useful but are duplicated now aswell.
