10 years agorcu: Make hierarchical RCU less IPI-happy
Paul E. McKenney [Tue, 14 Apr 2009 04:31:16 +0000]
rcu: Make hierarchical RCU less IPI-happy

This patch fixes a hierarchical-RCU performance bug located by Anton
Blanchard.  The problem stems from a misguided attempt to provide a
work-around for jiffies-counter failure.  This work-around uses a per-CPU
n_rcu_pending counter, which is incremented on each call to rcu_pending(),
which in turn is called from each scheduling-clock interrupt.  Each CPU
then treats this counter as a surrogate for the jiffies counter, so
that if the jiffies counter fails to advance, the per-CPU n_rcu_pending
counter will cause RCU to invoke force_quiescent_state(), which in turn
will (among other things) send resched IPIs to CPUs that have thus far
failed to pass through an RCU quiescent state.

Unfortunately, each CPU resets only its own counter after sending a
batch of IPIs.  This means that the other CPUs will also (needlessly)
send -another- round of IPIs, for a full N-squared set of IPIs in the
worst case every three scheduler-clock ticks until the grace period
finally ends.  It is not reasonable for a given CPU to reset each and
every n_rcu_pending for all the other CPUs, so this patch instead simply
disables the jiffies-counter "training wheels", thus eliminating the
excessive IPIs.

Note that the jiffies-counter IPIs do not have this problem due to
the fact that the jiffies counter is global, so that the CPU sending
the IPIs can easily reset things, thus preventing the other CPUs from
sending redundant IPIs.

Note also that the n_rcu_pending counter remains, as it will continue to
be used for tracing.  It may also see use to update the jiffies counter,
should an appropriate kick-the-jiffies-counter API appear.

10 years agolockdep: warn about lockdep disabling after kernel taint, fix
Ingo Molnar [Tue, 14 Apr 2009 09:03:12 +0000]
lockdep: warn about lockdep disabling after kernel taint, fix

Impact: build fix for Sparc and s390

Stephen Rothwell reported that the Sparc build broke:

 In file included from kernel/panic.c:12:
 include/linux/debug_locks.h: In function '__debug_locks_off':
 include/linux/debug_locks.h:15: error: implicit declaration of function 'xchg'

due to:

 9eeba61: lockdep: warn about lockdep disabling after kernel taint

There is some inconsistency between architectures about where exactly
xchg() is defined.

The traditional place is in system.h but the more logical point for it
is in atomic.h - where most architectures (especially new ones) have
it defined. These architecture also still offer it via system.h.

Some, such as Sparc or s390 only have it in asm/system.h and not available
via asm/atomic.h at all.

Use the widest set of headers in debug_locks.h and also include asm/system.h.

ext2: fix data corruption for racing writes

If two writers allocating blocks to file race with each other (e.g.
because writepages races with ordinary write or two writepages race with
each other), ext2_getblock() can be called on the same inode in parallel.
Before we are going to allocate new blocks, we have to recheck the block
chain we have obtained so far without holding truncate_mutex.  Otherwise
we could overwrite the indirect block pointer set by the other writer
leading to data loss.

The below test program by Ying is able to reproduce the data loss with ext2
on in BRD in a few minutes if the machine is under memory pressure:

long kMemSize  = 50 << 20;
int kPageSize = 4096;

int main(int argc, char **argv) {
int status;
int count = 0;
int i;
char *fname = "/mnt/test.mmap";
char *mem;
unlink(fname);
int fd = open(fname, O_CREAT | O_EXCL | O_RDWR, 0600);
status = ftruncate(fd, kMemSize);
mem = mmap(0, kMemSize, PROT_READ | PROT_WRITE, MAP_SHARED, fd, 0);
// Fill the memory with 1s.
memset(mem, 1, kMemSize);
sleep(2);
for (i = 0; i < kMemSize; i++) {
int byte_good = mem[i] != 0;
if (!byte_good && ((i % kPageSize) == 0)) {
//printf("%d ", i / kPageSize);
count++;
}
}
munmap(mem, kMemSize);
close(fd);
unlink(fname);

if (count > 0) {
printf("Running %d bad page\n", count);
return 1;
}
return 0;

shmem: respect MAX_LFS_FILESIZE

SHMEM_MAX_BYTES was derived from the maximum size of its triple-indirect
swap vector, forgetting to take the MAX_LFS_FILESIZE limit into account.
Never mind 256kB pages, even 8kB pages on 32-bit kernels allowed files to
grow slightly bigger than that supposed maximum.

Fix this by using the min of both (at build time not run time).  And it
happens that this calculation is good as far as 8MB pages on 32-bit or
16MB pages on 64-bit: though SHMSWP_MAX_INDEX gets truncated before that,
it's truncated to such large numbers that we don't need to care.

shmem: fix division by zero

Fix a division by zero which we have in shmem_truncate_range() and
shmem_unuse_inode() when using big PAGE_SIZE values (e.g.  256kB on

With 256kB PAGE_SIZE, the ENTRIES_PER_PAGEPAGE constant becomes too large
(0x1.0000.0000) on a 32-bit kernel, so this patch just changes its type
from 'unsigned long' to 'unsigned long long'.

Hugh: reverted its unsigned long longs in shmem_truncate_range() and
shmem_getpage(): the pagecache index cannot be more than an unsigned long,
so the divisions by zero occurred in unreached code.  It's a pity we need

10 years agoinitramfs: fix initramfs to work with hardlinked init
Randy Robertson [Mon, 13 Apr 2009 21:40:04 +0000]
initramfs: fix initramfs to work with hardlinked init

Change cb6ff208076b5f434db1b8c983429269d719cef5 ("NOMMU: Support XIP on
initramfs") seems to have broken booting from initramfs with /sbin/init
being a hardlink.

It seems like the logic required for XIP on nommu, i.e.  ftruncate to
reported cpio header file size (body_len) is broken for hardlinks, which
have a reported size of 0, and the truncate thus nukes the contents of the
file (in my case busybox), making boot impossible and ending with runaway
loop modprobe binfmt-0000 - and of course 0000 is not a valid binary
format.

My fix is to only call ftruncate if size is non-zero which fixes things
for me, but I'm not certain whether this will break XIP for those files on
nommu systems, although I would guess not.

Oleg Nesterov [Mon, 13 Apr 2009 21:40:03 +0000]
ptrace: fix exit_ptrace() vs ptrace_traceme() race

Pointed out by Roland.  The bug was recently introduced by me in
"forget_original_parent: split out the un-ptrace part", commit
39c626ae47c469abdfd30c6e42eff884931380d6.

Since that patch we have a window after exit_ptrace() drops tasklist and
before forget_original_parent() takes it again.  In this window the child
can do ptrace(PTRACE_TRACEME) and nobody can untrace this child after
that.

Change ptrace_traceme() to not attach to the exiting ->real_parent.  We
don't report the error in this case, we pretend we attach right before
->real_parent calls exit_ptrace() which should untrace us anyway.

David Brownell [Mon, 13 Apr 2009 21:39:57 +0000]
spi: spi_write_then_read() bugfixes

The "simplify spi_write_then_read()" patch included two regressions from
the 2.6.27 behaviors:

 - The data it wrote out during the (full duplex) read side
   of the transfer was not zeroed.

 - It fails completely on half duplex hardware, such as
   Microwire and most "3-wire" SPI variants.

So, revert that patch.  A revised version should be submitted at some
point, which can get the speedup on standard hardware (full duplex)
without breaking on less-capable half-duplex stuff.

hwmon: sht15 humidity sensor driver

Data sheet at:
http://www.sensirion.ch/en/pdf/product_information/Datasheet-humidity-sensor-SHT1x.pdf

These sensors communicate over a 2 wire bus running a device specific
protocol.  The complexity of the driver is mainly due to handling the
substantial delays between requesting a reading and the device pulling the
data line low to indicate that the data is available.  This is handled by
an interrupt that is disabled under all other conditions.

I wasn't terribly clear on the best way to handle this, so comments on
that aspect would be particularly welcome!

Interpretation of the temperature depends on knowing the supply voltage.
If configured in a board config as a regulator consumer this is obtained
from the regulator subsystem.  If not it should be provided in the
platform data.

I've placed this driver in the hwmon subsystem as it is definitely a
device that may be used for hardware monitoring and with it's relatively
slow response times (up to 120 millisecs to get a reading) a caching
strategy certainly seems to make sense!

10 years agoPM/Hibernate: Wait for SCSI devices scan to complete during resume
Rafael J. Wysocki [Sun, 12 Apr 2009 18:06:56 +0000]
PM/Hibernate: Wait for SCSI devices scan to complete during resume

There is a race between resume from hibernation and the asynchronous
scanning of SCSI devices and to prevent it from happening we need to
call scsi_complete_async_scans() during resume from hibernation.

In addition, if the resume from hibernation is userland-driven, it's
better to wait for all device probes in the kernel to complete before
attempting to open the resume device.

Atttempting to rid us of the problematic work_on_cpu().  Just use

This repairs a 10% sysbench(oltp)+mysql regression which Mike reported,
due to

It seems that the kernel calls these acpi-cpufreq functions at a quite
high frequency.

Valdis Kletnieks also reports that this causes 70-90 forks per second on

10 years agoadd some long-missing capabilities to fs_mask
Serge E. Hallyn [Mon, 13 Apr 2009 14:56:14 +0000]
add some long-missing capabilities to fs_mask

When POSIX capabilities were introduced during the 2.1 Linux
cycle, the fs mask, which represents the capabilities which having
fsuid==0 is supposed to grant, did not include CAP_MKNOD and
CAP_LINUX_IMMUTABLE.  However, before capabilities the privilege
to call these did in fact depend upon fsuid==0.

This patch introduces those capabilities into the fsmask,
restoring the old behavior.

See the thread starting at http://lkml.org/lkml/2009/3/11/157 for
reference.

Note that if this fix is deemed valid, then earlier kernel versions (2.4
and 2.2) ought to be fixed too.

Changelog:
[Mar 23] Actually delete old CAP_FS_SET definition...

i2c: Fix sparse warnings for I2C_BOARD_INFO()

Since the first argument to I2C_BOARD_INFO() must be a string constant,
there is no need to parenthesise it, and adding parentheses results in
an invalid initialiser for char[].  gcc obviously accepts this syntax as
an extension, but sparse complains, e.g.:

drivers/net/sfc/boards.c:173:2: warning: array initialized from parenthesized string constant

Therefore, remove the parentheses.

staging developers or those who experience a warning but are focused
on another things that require lockdep.

The v2 of this patch simply don't disable anymore lockdep in case
of TAINT_CRAP and TAINT_WARN events.

10 years agolockdep: warn about lockdep disabling after kernel taint
Frederic Weisbecker [Sat, 11 Apr 2009 01:17:17 +0000]
lockdep: warn about lockdep disabling after kernel taint

Impact: provide useful missing info for developers

Kernel taint can occur in several situations such as warnings,
load of prorietary or staging modules, bad page, etc...

But when such taint happens, a developer might still be working on
the kernel, expecting that lockdep is still enabled. But a taint
disables lockdep without ever warning about it.
Such a kernel behaviour doesn't really help for kernel development.

This patch adds this missing warning.

Since the taint is done most of the time after the main message that
explain the real source issue, it seems safe to warn about it inside
add_taint() so that it appears at last, without hurting the main
information.

v2: Use a generic helper to disable lockdep instead of an
    open coded xchg().

10 years agox86: fix wrong section of pat_disable & make it static
Marcin Slusarz [Fri, 10 Apr 2009 20:47:17 +0000]
x86: fix wrong section of pat_disable & make it static

pat_disable cannot be __cpuinit anymore because it's called from pat_init
and the callchain looks like this:
pat_disable [cpuinit] <- pat_init <- generic_set_all <-
 ipi_handler <- set_mtrr <- (other non init/cpuinit functions)

WARNING: arch/x86/mm/built-in.o(.text+0x449e): Section mismatch in reference
from the function pat_init() to the function .cpuinit.text:pat_disable()
The function pat_init() references
the function __cpuinit pat_disable().
This is often because pat_init lacks a __cpuinit
annotation or the annotation of pat_disable is wrong.

Non CONFIG_X86_PAT version of pat_disable is static inline, so this version
can be static too (and there are no callers outside of this file).

In arch/x86/kernel/mpparse.c, smp_reserve_bootmem() has been called
and also refers to a function which is in .init section. Thus causes
the first warning. And check_irq_src() also requires an __init,

10 years agoasync: Fix module loading async-work regression
Linus Torvalds [Fri, 10 Apr 2009 19:17:41 +0000]
async: Fix module loading async-work regression

Several drivers use asynchronous work to do device discovery, and we
synchronize with them in the compiled-in case before we actually try to
mount root filesystems etc.

However, when compiled as modules, that synchronization is missing - the
module loading completes, but the driver hasn't actually finished
probing for devices, and that means that any user mode that expects to
use the devices after the 'insmod' is now potentially broken.

We already saw one case of a similar issue in the ACPI battery code,
where the kernel itself expected the module to be all done, and unmapped
the init memory - but the async device discovery was still running.
That got hacked around by just removing the "__init" (see commit
5d38258ec026921a7b266f4047ebeaa75db358e5 "ACPI battery: fix async boot
oops"), but the real fix is to just make the module loading wait for all
async work to be completed.

It will slow down module loading, but since common devices should be
built in anyway, and since the bug is really annoying and hard to handle
from user space (and caused several S3 resume regressions), the simple
fix to wait is the right one.

This fixes at least

http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=13063

but probably a few other bugzilla entries too (12936, for example), and
is confirmed to fix Rafael's storage driver breakage after resume bug
report (no bugzilla entry).

We should also be able to now revert that ACPI battery fix.

10 years agokbuild: fix spurious initramfs rebuild
Maxime Bizon [Mon, 9 Feb 2009 17:49:52 +0000]
kbuild: fix spurious initramfs rebuild

When gen_initramfs_list is used to generate make dependencies, it
includes symbolic links, for which make tracks the link target. Any
change to that target will cause an initramfs rebuild, even if the
symlink points to something outside of the initramfs directory.

If the target happens to be /tmp, the rebuild occurs for each kernel
build, since gen_initramfs_list uses mktemp...

Proposed way to fix it is to omit symbolic links from generated
dependencies, but this has a small drawback: changing perm/owner on a
symlink will go unnoticed.

kbuild: make it possible for the linker to discard local symbols from vmlinux

Make it possible for the linker to discard local symbols from vmlinux as
they cause vmlinux to balloon when CONFIG_KALLSYMS=y and they cause
dump_stack() and get_wchan() to produce useless information under some
circumstances.

With this we add a config option (CONFIG_STRIP_ASM_SYMS) that will cause
