Add a boolean "memory_migrate" to each cpuset, represented by a file

It defaults to false (file contains "0").  It can be set true by writing
"1" to the file.

If true, then anytime that a task is attached to the cpuset so marked, the
pages of that task will be moved to that cpuset, preserving, to the extent
practical, the cpuset-relative placement of the pages.

Also anytime that a cpuset so marked has its memory placement changed (by
writing to its "mems" file), the tasks in that cpuset will have their pages
moved to the cpusets new nodes, preserving, to the extent practical, the

Christoph Lameter [Sun, 8 Jan 2006 09:00:51 +0000]
[PATCH] Swap Migration V5: sys_migrate_pages interface

sys_migrate_pages implementation using swap based page migration

This is the original API proposed by Ray Bryant in his posts during the first
half of 2005 on linux-mm@kvack.org and linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org.

The intent of sys_migrate is to migrate memory of a process.  A process may
have migrated to another node.  Memory was allocated optimally for the prior
context.  sys_migrate_pages allows to shift the memory to the new node.

sys_migrate_pages is also useful if the processes available memory nodes have
changed through cpuset operations to manually move the processes memory.  Paul
Jackson is working on an automated mechanism that will allow an automatic
migration if the cpuset of a process is changed.  However, a user may decide
to manually control the migration.

This implementation is put into the policy layer since it uses concepts and
functions that are also needed for mbind and friends.  The patch also provides
a do_migrate_pages function that may be useful for cpusets to automatically
move memory.  sys_migrate_pages does not modify policies in contrast to Ray's
implementation.

The current code here is based on the swap based page migration capability and
thus is not able to preserve the physical layout relative to it containing
nodeset (which may be a cpuset).  When direct page migration becomes available
then the implementation needs to be changed to do a isomorphic move of pages
between different nodesets.  The current implementation simply evicts all
pages in source nodeset that are not in the target nodeset.

Patch supports ia64, i386 and x86_64.

Christoph Lameter [Sun, 8 Jan 2006 09:00:48 +0000]
[PATCH] Swap Migration V5: migrate_pages() function

This adds the basic page migration function with a minimal implementation that
only allows the eviction of pages to swap space.

Page eviction and migration may be useful to migrate pages, to suspend
programs or for remapping single pages (useful for faulty pages or pages with
soft ECC failures)

The process is as follows:

The function wanting to migrate pages must first build a list of pages to be
migrated or evicted and take them off the lru lists via isolate_lru_page().
isolate_lru_page determines that a page is freeable based on the LRU bit set.

Then the actual migration or swapout can happen by calling migrate_pages().

migrate_pages does its best to migrate or swapout the pages and does multiple
passes over the list.  Some pages may only be swappable if they are not dirty.
 migrate_pages may start writing out dirty pages in the initial passes over
the pages.  However, migrate_pages may not be able to migrate or evict all
pages for a variety of reasons.

The remaining pages may be returned to the LRU lists using putback_lru_pages().

Changelog V4->V5:
- Use the lru caches to return pages to the LRU

Changelog V3->V4:
- Restructure code so that applying patches to support full migration does
  require minimal changes. Rename swapout_pages() to migrate_pages().

Changelog V2->V3:
- Extract common code from shrink_list() and swapout_pages()

14 years ago[PATCH] Swap Migration V5: LRU operations
Christoph Lameter [Sun, 8 Jan 2006 09:00:45 +0000]
[PATCH] Swap Migration V5: LRU operations

This is the start of the `swap migration' patch series.

Swap migration allows the moving of the physical location of pages between
nodes in a numa system while the process is running.  This means that the
virtual addresses that the process sees do not change.  However, the system
rearranges the physical location of those pages.

The main intent of page migration patches here is to reduce the latency of
memory access by moving pages near to the processor where the process
accessing that memory is running.

The patchset allows a process to manually relocate the node on which its
pages are located through the MF_MOVE and MF_MOVE_ALL options while
setting a new memory policy.

The pages of process can also be relocated from another process using the
sys_migrate_pages() function call.  Requires CAP_SYS_ADMIN.  The migrate_pages
function call takes two sets of nodes and moves pages of a process that are
located on the from nodes to the destination nodes.

Manual migration is very useful if for example the scheduler has relocated a
process to a processor on a distant node.  A batch scheduler or an
administrator can detect the situation and move the pages of the process
nearer to the new processor.

sys_migrate_pages() could be used on non-numa machines as well, to force all
of a particualr process's pages out to swap, if someone thinks that's useful.

Larger installations usually partition the system using cpusets into sections
of nodes.  Paul has equipped cpusets with the ability to move pages when a
task is moved to another cpuset.  This allows automatic control over locality
of a process.  If a task is moved to a new cpuset then also all its pages are
moved with it so that the performance of the process does not sink
dramatically (as is the case today).

Swap migration works by simply evicting the page.  The pages must be faulted
back in.  The pages are then typically reallocated by the system near the node
where the process is executing.

For swap migration the destination of the move is controlled by the allocation
policy.  Cpusets set the allocation policy before calling sys_migrate_pages()
in order to move the pages as intended.

No allocation policy changes are performed for sys_migrate_pages().  This
means that the pages may not faulted in to the specified nodes if no
allocation policy was set by other means.  The pages will just end up near the
node where the fault occurred.

There's another patch series in the pipeline which implements "direct
migration".

The direct migration patchset extends the migration functionality to avoid
going through swap.  The destination node of the relation is controllable
during the actual moving of pages.  The crutch of using the allocation policy
to relocate is not necessary and the pages are moved directly to the target.
Its also faster since swap is not used.

And sys_migrate_pages() can then move pages directly to the specified node.
Implement functions to isolate pages from the LRU and put them back later.

This patch:

An earlier implementation was provided by Hirokazu Takahashi
<taka@valinux.co.jp> and IWAMOTO Toshihiro <iwamoto@valinux.co.jp> for the
memory hotplug project.

Christoph Lameter [Sun, 8 Jan 2006 09:00:43 +0000]
[PATCH] add schedule_on_each_cpu()

swap migration's isolate_lru_page() currently uses an IPI to notify other
processors that the lru caches need to be drained if the page cannot be
found on the LRU.  The IPI interrupt may interrupt a processor that is just
processing lru requests and cause a race condition.

This patch introduces a new function run_on_each_cpu() that uses the
keventd() to run the LRU draining on each processor.  Processors disable
preemption when dealing the LRU caches (these are per processor) and thus
executing LRU draining from another process is safe.

[PATCH] Make high and batch sizes of per_cpu_pagelists configurable

As recently there has been lot of traffic on the right values for batch and

variables configurable through /proc interface.

A new tunable /proc/sys/vm/percpu_pagelist_fraction is added.  This entry
controls the fraction of pages at most in each zone that are allocated for
each per cpu page list.  The min value for this is 8.  It means that we
don't allow more than 1/8th of pages in each zone to be allocated in any
single per_cpu_pagelist.

The batch value of each per cpu pagelist is also updated as a result.  It
is set to pcp->high/4.  The upper limit of batch is (PAGE_SHIFT * 8)

Add /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches.  When written to, this will cause the kernel to
discard as much pagecache and/or reclaimable slab objects as it can.  THis
operation requires root permissions.

It won't drop dirty data, so the user should run `sync' first.

Caveats:

a) Holds inode_lock for exorbitant amounts of time.

b) Needs to be taught about NUMA nodes: propagate these all the way through
   so the discarding can be controlled on a per-node basis.

This is a debugging feature: useful for getting consistent results between
filesystem benchmarks.  We could possibly put it under a config option, but
it's less than 300 bytes.

[NETFILTER]: Handle NAT in IPsec policy checks

Handle NAT of decapsulated IPsec packets by reconstructing the struct flowi
of the original packet from the conntrack information for IPsec policy
checks.

Keep the conntrack reference until policy checks have been performed for
IPsec NAT support. The reference needs to be dropped before a packet is
queued to avoid having the conntrack module unloadable.

[NETFILTER]: Redo policy lookups after NAT when neccessary

When NAT changes the key used for the xfrm lookup it needs to be done
again. If a new policy is returned in POST_ROUTING the packet needs
to be passed to xfrm4_output_one manually after all hooks were called
because POST_ROUTING is called with fixed okfn (ip_finish_output).

[NETFILTER]: Fix xfrm lookup in ip_route_me_harder/ip6_route_me_harder

ip_route_me_harder doesn't use the port numbers of the xfrm lookup and
uses ip_route_input for non-local addresses which doesn't do a xfrm
lookup, ip6_route_me_harder doesn't do a xfrm lookup at all.

Use xfrm_decode_session and do the lookup manually, make sure both
only do the lookup if the packet hasn't been transformed already.

Makeing sure the lookup only happens once needs a new field in the
IP6CB, which exceeds the size of skb->cb. The size of skb->cb is
increased to 48b. Apparently the IPv6 mobile extensions need some

[PATCH] fbcon: don´t call set_par() in fbcon_init() if vc_mode == KD_GRAPHICS

Nothing prevents a user to modprobe a framebuffer driver from e.g.  the
xterm prompt.  As a result, the set_par() function of the driver will be
called from fbcon_init().

This is fatal as a lot of X / framebuffer combinations are unable to
recover from set_par() reprogramming the graphics controller in
KD_GRAPHICS mode.

It is also unnecessary as the set_par() function will be called during a
switch to KD_TEXT anyway.  Because of this no side effects are possible.

14 years ago[PATCH] Fix posix-cpu-timers sched_time accumulation
David S. Miller [Fri, 6 Jan 2006 23:36:48 +0000]
[PATCH] Fix posix-cpu-timers sched_time accumulation

I've spent the past 3 days digging into a glibc testsuite failure in
current CVS, specifically libc/rt/tst-cputimer1.c The thr1 and thr2
timers fire too early in the second pass of this test.  The second
pass is noteworthy because it makes use of intervals, whereas the
first pass does not.

All throughout the posix-cpu-timers.c code, the calculation of the
process sched_time sum is implemented roughly as:

unsigned long long sum;

sum = tsk->signal->sched_time;
t = tsk;
do {
sum += t->sched_time;
t = next_thread(t);
} while (t != tsk);

In fact this is the exact scheme used by check_process_timers().

In the case of check_process_timers(), current->sched_time has just
been updated (via scheduler_tick(), which is invoked by
update_process_times(), which subsequently invokes
run_posix_cpu_timers()) So there is no special processing necessary
wrt. that.

In other contexts, we have to allot for the fact that tsk->sched_time
might be a bit out of date if we are current.  And the
posix-cpu-timers.c code uses current_sched_time() to deal with that.

Unfortunately it does so in an erroneous and inconsistent manner in
one spot which is what results in the early timer firing.

In cpu_clock_sample_group_locked(), it does this:

cpu->sched = p->signal->sched_time;
/* Add in each other live thread.  */
while ((t = next_thread(t)) != p) {
cpu->sched += t->sched_time;
}
if (p->tgid == current->tgid) {
/*
 * We're sampling ourselves, so include the
 * cycles not yet banked.  We still omit
 * other threads running on other CPUs,
 * so the total can always be behind as
 * much as max(nthreads-1,ncpus) * (NSEC_PER_SEC/HZ).
 */
cpu->sched += current_sched_time(current);
} else {
cpu->sched += p->sched_time;
}

The problem is the "p->tgid == current->tgid" test.  If "p" is
not current, and the tgids are the same, we will add the process
t->sched_time twice into cpu->sched and omit "p"'s sched_time
which is very very very wrong.

posix-cpu-timers.c has a helper function, sched_ns(p) which takes care
of this, so my fix is to use that here instead of this special tgid
test.

The fact that current can be one of the sub-threads of "p" points out
that we could make things a little bit more accurate, perhaps by using
sched_ns() on every thread we process in these loops.  It also points
out that we don't use the most accurate value for threads in the group
actively running other cpus (and this is mentioned in the comment).

But that is a future enhancement, and this fix here definitely makes
sense.
