Michael S. Tsirkin [Sun, 22 Nov 2009 12:13:35 +0000]
perf: Use default compiler mode by default

gcc with no flags typically is a sane default for systems to
use, and looking at the running kernel is probably broken for
cross-builds anyway, so let's not do this.  Add EXTRA_CFLAGS so

tracing: Use the perf recursion protection from trace event

When we commit a trace to perf, we first check if we are
recursing in the same buffer so that we don't mess-up the buffer
with a recursing trace. But later on, we do the same check from
perf to avoid commit recursion. The recursion check is desired
early before we touch the buffer but we want to do this check
only once.

Then export the recursion protection from perf and use it from
the trace events before submitting a trace.

We better call this routine after both the kernel and modules

be called, resulting in kernel_map->end remaining at zero, so no
map would be found and consequently the kernel symtab wouldn't
get loaded, i.e. no kernel symbols would be resolved.

Also this fixes another case, that is when we _have_ modules,
but the last map would have its ->end address not set before we
loaded its symbols, which would never happen because ->end was

9 years agoperf_events: Fix default watermark calculation
Stephane Eranian [Fri, 20 Nov 2009 21:19:57 +0000]
perf_events: Fix default watermark calculation

This patch fixes the default watermark value for the sampling
buffer. With the existing calculation (watermark =
max(PAGE_SIZE, max_size / 2)), no notification was ever received
when the buffer was exactly 1 page. This was because you would
never cross the threshold (there is no partial samples).

In certain configuration, there was no possibilty detecting the
problem because there was not enough space left to store the
LOST record.In fact, there may be a more generic problem here.
The kernel should ensure that there is alaways enough space to
store one LOST record.

This patch sets the default watermark to half the buffer size.
With such limit, we are guaranteed to get a notification even
with a single page buffer assuming no sample is bigger than a
page.

Remove an update_context_time() call from the
perf_event_task_sched_out() path and into the branch its needed.

The call was both superfluous, because __perf_event_sched_out()
already does it, and wrong, because it was done without holding
ctx->lock.

Place it in perf_event_sync_stat(), which is the only place it
is needed and which does already hold ctx->lock.

9 years agoperf: Fix PERF_FORMAT_GROUP scale info
Peter Zijlstra [Fri, 20 Nov 2009 21:19:49 +0000]
perf: Fix PERF_FORMAT_GROUP scale info

As Corey reported, the total_enabled and total_running times
could occasionally be 0, even though there were events counted.

It turns out this is because we record the times before reading
the counter while the latter updates the times.

This patch corrects that.

While looking at this code I found that there is a lot of
locking iffyness around, the following patches correct most of
that.

E.g.:

[root@doppio linux-2.6-tip]# perf top -v --vmlinux

e96699725a47413a50c231864a8e7a8ced40a31b while expected is
18e7cc53db62a7d35e9d6f6c9ddc23017d38ee9a, ignoring it

I.e. perf top was told to use a vmlinux file that is not the one
currently running on the machine, it ignores it and falls back
to using /proc/kallsyms.

This solves many, at first, mysterious results when people have
a stale vmlinux file while keeping the default of trying to use
the vmlinux file in the current directory in things like 'perf
annotate' where the DWARF info is required and thus we can't use
just /proc/kallsyms.

Modules buildids are already being checked as of the previous
changeset in this series, because we are using the default
dso__load routine, that will look at a series of places looking
for the best file with a matching buildid, starting in the
-debuginfo directories.

Just like we do with the other DSOs. This also simplifies the
kernel_maps setup process, now all that the tools need to do is
to call kernel_maps__init and the maps for the modules and
kernel will be created, then, later, when
kernel_maps__find_symbol() is used, it will also call
maps__find_symbol that already checks if the symtab was loaded,
loading it if needed.

Now if one does 'perf top --hide_kernel_symbols' we won't pay
the price of loading the (many) symbols in /proc/kallsyms or

Several refactorings were needed so that we can have symmetry
between dsos__load_modules() and dsos__load_kernel(), i.e. those
functions will respectively create and add to the dsos list the
loaded modules and kernel, with its buildids, but not load its
symbols. That is something the subcomands that need will have to
call dso__load_kernel_sym(), just like we do with modules with
dsos__load_module_sym()/dso__load_module_sym().

Next csets will actually use this info to stop producing bogus
results using mismatched vmlinux and .ko files.

Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo [Wed, 18 Nov 2009 22:20:50 +0000]
perf symbols: Fix comparision of build_ids

When we read the build_id from the DSO name to then index into
/usr/lib/debug/.buildid/DSO_BUILD_ID[0:2]/DSO_BUILD_ID[2:], we
were jumping directly to the comparision with the buildid we
already have in dso->build_id (that came from the perf.data
build_id section, collected at perf record time)
unconditionally, even if we didn't had recorded it, and
furthermore, comparing a formatted buildid with a rawbuildid, yikes.

Fix it by deleting the dso__read_build_id() function, that was
really misdesigned anyway, and do the necessary checks and
correct comparison of raw buildids.

9 years agoperf_event: Optimize perf_output_lock()
Peter Zijlstra [Mon, 16 Nov 2009 11:45:14 +0000]
perf_event: Optimize perf_output_lock()

The purpose of perf_output_{un,}lock() is to:

 1) avoid publishing incomplete data
    [ possible when publishing a head that is ahead of an entry
      that is still being written ]

 2) guarantee fwd progress
    [ a simple refcount on pending writers doesn't need to drop to
      0, making it so would end up implementing something like forced
      quiecent states of RCU ]

To satisfy the above without undue complexity it serializes
between CPUs, this means that a pending writer can only be the
same cpu in a nested context, and since (under normal operation)
a cpu always makes progress we're good -- if the head is only
published when the bottom  most writer completes.

Now we don't need to disable IRQs in order to serialize between
CPUs, disabling preemption ought to be sufficient, esp since we
already deal with nesting due to NMIs.

This avoids potentially expensive (and needless) local IRQ
disable/enable ops.

Lockdep events subsystem gathers various locking related events
such as a request, release, contention or acquisition of a lock.

The name of this event subsystem is a bit of a misnomer since
these events are not quite related to lockdep but more generally
to locking, ie: these events are not reporting lock dependencies
or possible deadlock scenario but pure locking events.

Hence this rename.

If a process asks for (i.e.) capture-assert events only, when the PPS
client calls the pps_event() function to save the current PPS event, we
should verify the event type and then discard unwanted ones.

rtc: v3020: fix v3020_mmio_read_bit()

v3020_mmio_read_bit() always returns 0 when left_shift > 7.

v3020_mmio_read_bit()'s return type is (unsigned char).  The code returns
a value masked by (1 << left_shift) that is casted to the return type.  If
left_shift is larger than 7, the cast will always result in a 0 return
value.  The problem was discovered with left_shift = 16, and the included
patch corrects the problem.

The bug was introduced in the last (Apr 3 2009) commit of the file, kernel
versions 2.6.30 and later.

exec: setup_arg_pages() fails to return errors

In setup_arg_pages we work hard to assign a value to ret, but on exit we
always return 0.

Also remove a now duplicated exit path and branch to out_unlock instead.
