8 years agoslab: shrink sizeof(struct kmem_cache)
Eric Dumazet [Wed, 20 Jul 2011 17:04:23 +0000]
slab: shrink sizeof(struct kmem_cache)

Reduce high order allocations for some setups.
(NR_CPUS=4096 -> we need 64KB per kmem_cache struct)

We now allocate exact needed size (using nr_cpu_ids and nr_node_ids)

This also makes code a bit smaller on x86_64, since some field offsets
are less than the 127 limit :

Before patch :
# size mm/slab.o
   text    data     bss     dec     hex filename
  22605  361665      32  384302   5dd2e mm/slab.o

After patch :
# size mm/slab.o
   text    data     bss     dec     hex filename

slab: fix DEBUG_SLAB build

Fix CONFIG_SLAB=y CONFIG_DEBUG_SLAB=y build error and warnings.

Now that ARCH_SLAB_MINALIGN defaults to __alignof__(unsigned long long),
it is always defined (when slab.h included), but cannot be used in #if:
mm/slab.c: In function `cache_alloc_debugcheck_after':

So just remove the #if and #endif lines, but then 64-bit build warns:

slob/lockdep: Fix gfp flags passed to lockdep

Doing a ktest.pl randconfig, I stumbled across the following bug
on boot up:

------------[ cut here ]------------

---[ end trace a7919e7f17c0a725 ]---

Then I ran a ktest.pl config_bisect and it came up with this config
as the problem:


Looking at what is different between SLOB and SLAB and SLUB, I found
that the gfp flags are masked against gfp_allowed_mask in
SLAB and SLUB, but not SLOB.

On boot up, interrupts are disabled and lockdep will warn if some flags
are set in gfp and interrupts are disabled. But these flags are masked
off with the gfp_allowed_mask during boot. Because SLOB does not
mask the flags against gfp_allowed_mask it triggers the warn on.

Adding this mask fixes the bug. I also found that kmem_cache_alloc_node()
was missing both the mask and the lockdep check, and that was added too.

    IP: [<c11ae035>] find_next_bit+0x55/0xb0
    Call Trace:
     [<c11addda>] cpumask_any_but+0x2a/0x70

     [<c103a3fc>] mm_init+0xec/0x120
     [<c103a7a3>] mm_alloc+0x53/0xd0

which was introduced by commit de03c72cfce5 ("mm: convert
mm->cpu_vm_cpumask into cpumask_var_t"), and is due to wrong ordering of
mm_init() vs mm_init_cpumask

Thomas wrote a patch to just fix the ordering of initialization, but I
hate the new double allocation in the fork path, so I ended up instead
doing some more radical surgery to clean it all up.

encode_layoutreturn() is called, each error is properly encoded on the

It is up to the io_engine to fill in the segment that fault and the type
of osd_error that occurred. By calling objlayout_io_set_result() for
each failing device.

pnfs: client stats

A pNFS client auto-negotiates a lot of features (minorversion level,
pNFS layout type, etc.).  This is convenient, but makes certain kinds of
failures hard for a user to detect.

For example, if the client falls back on 4.0, or falls back to MDS IO
because the user didn't connect to the right iscsi disks before
mounting, the only symptoms may be reduced performance, which may not be
noticed till long after the actual failure, and may be difficult for a
user to diagnose.

However, such "failures" may also be perfectly normal in some cases, so
we don't want to spam the system logs with them.

eCryptfs: Cleanup inode initialization code

has two separate paths. One is for when dentry interposition is needed
after doing things like a mkdir in the lower filesystem and the other

This patch cleans up the inode get and initialization code paths and

8 years agodm kcopyd: preallocate sub jobs to avoid deadlock
Mikulas Patocka [Sun, 29 May 2011 12:03:00 +0000]
dm kcopyd: preallocate sub jobs to avoid deadlock

There's a possible theoretical deadlock in dm-kcopyd because multiple
allocations from the same mempool are required to finish a request.
Avoid this by preallocating sub jobs.

There is a mempool of 512 entries. Each request requires up to 9
entries from the mempool. If we have at least 57 concurrent requests
running, the mempool may overflow and mempool allocations may start
blocking until another entry is freed to the mempool. Because the same
thread is used to free entries to the mempool and allocate entries from
the mempool, this may result in a deadlock.

This patch changes it so that one mempool entry contains all 9 "struct
kcopyd_job" required to fulfill the whole request. The allocation is
done only once in dm_kcopyd_copy and no further mempool allocations are
done during request processing.

If dm_kcopyd_copy is not run in the completion thread, this
implementation is deadlock-free.

MIN_JOBS needs reducing accordingly and we've chosen to reduce it
further to 8.

Len Brown [Fri, 1 Apr 2011 19:46:09 +0000]
x86 idle: deprecate mwait_idle() and "idle=mwait" cmdline param

mwait_idle() is a C1-only idle loop intended to be more efficient
than HLT on SMP hardware that supports it.

But mwait_idle() has been replaced by the more general
mwait_idle_with_hints(), which handles both C1 and deeper C-states.
ACPI uses only mwait_idle_with_hints(), and never uses mwait_idle().

Deprecate mwait_idle() and the "idle=mwait" cmdline param
to simplify the x86 idle code.

After this change, kernels configured with
(!CONFIG_ACPI=n && !CONFIG_INTEL_IDLE=n) when run on hardware
that support MWAIT will simply use HLT.  If MWAIT is desired
on those systems, cpuidle and the cpuidle drivers above
can be used.

ACPI: processor: fix processor_physically_present in UP kernel

Usually, there are multiple processors defined in ACPI table, for

    Scope (_PR)
        Processor (CPU0, 0x00, 0x00000410, 0x06) {}
        Processor (CPU1, 0x01, 0x00000410, 0x06) {}
        Processor (CPU2, 0x02, 0x00000410, 0x06) {}
        Processor (CPU3, 0x03, 0x00000410, 0x06) {}

processor_physically_present(...) will be called to check whether those
processors are physically present.

Currently we have below codes in processor_physically_present,

cpuid = acpi_get_cpuid(...);
if ((cpuid == -1) && (num_possible_cpus() > 1))
        return false;
return true;

In UP kernel, acpi_get_cpuid(...) always return -1 and
num_possible_cpus() always return 1, so
processor_physically_present(...) always returns true for all passed in
processor handles.

This is wrong for UP processor or SMP processor running UP kernel.

This patch removes the !SMP version of acpi_get_cpuid(), so both UP and
SMP kernel use the same acpi_get_cpuid function.

And for UP kernel, only processor 0 is valid.

8 years agoidle governor: Avoid lock acquisition to read pm_qos before entering idle
Tim Chen [Fri, 11 Feb 2011 20:49:04 +0000]
idle governor: Avoid lock acquisition to read pm_qos before entering idle

Thanks to the reviews and comments by Rafael, James, Mark and Andi.
Here's version 2 of the patch incorporating your comments and also some
update to my previous patch comments.

I noticed that before entering idle state, the menu idle governor will
look up the current pm_qos target value according to the list of qos
requests received.  This look up currently needs the acquisition of a
lock to access the list of qos requests to find the qos target value,
slowing down the entrance into idle state due to contention by multiple
cpus to access this list.  The contention is severe when there are a lot
of cpus waking and going into idle.  For example, for a simple workload
that has 32 pair of processes ping ponging messages to each other, where
64 cpu cores are active in test system, I see the following profile with
37.82% of cpu cycles spent in contention of pm_qos_lock:

-     37.82%          swapper  [kernel.kallsyms]          [k]
   - _raw_spin_lock_irqsave
      - 95.65% pm_qos_request
         - cpu_idle
              99.98% start_secondary

A better approach will be to cache the updated pm_qos target value so
reading it does not require lock acquisition as in the patch below.
With this patch the contention for pm_qos_lock is removed and I saw a
2.2X increase in throughput for my message passing workload.

On one machine I've been getting hangs, a page fault's anon_vma_prepare()
waiting in anon_vma_lock(), other processes waiting for that page's lock.

This is a replay of last year's f18194275c39 "mm: fix hang on

The new page_lock_anon_vma() places too much faith in its refcount: when
it has acquired the mutex_trylock(), it's possible that a racing task in
anon_vma_alloc() has just reallocated the struct anon_vma, set refcount
to 1, and is about to reset its anon_vma->root.

Fix this by saving anon_vma->root, and relying on the usual page_mapped()
check instead of a refcount check: if page is still mapped, the anon_vma
is still ours; if page is not still mapped, we're no longer interested.

I've hit the "address >= vma->vm_end" check in do_page_add_anon_rmap()

pages: the call to page_add_anon_rmap() coming from remove_migration_pte().

That path holds anon_vma lock, but does not hold mmap_sem: it can
therefore race with a split_vma(), and in commit 5f70b962ccc2 "mmap:

protection when adjusting vma->vm_end.

tmpfs: fix race between truncate and writepage

While running fsx on tmpfs with a memhog then swapoff, swapoff was hanging
(interruptibly), repeatedly failing to locate the owner of a 0xff entry in
the swap_map.

Although shmem_writepage() does abandon when it sees incoming page index
is beyond eof, there was still a window in which shmem_truncate_range()
could come in between writepage's dropping lock and updating swap_map,
find the half-completed swap_map entry, and in trying to free it,
leave it in a state that swap_shmem_alloc() could not correct.

Arguably a bug in __swap_duplicate()'s and swap_entry_free()'s handling
of the different cases, but easiest to fix by moving swap_shmem_alloc()
under cover of the lock.

More interesting than the bug: it's been there since 2.6.33, why could
I not see it with earlier kernels?  The mmotm of two weeks ago seems to
have some magic for generating races, this is just one of three I found.

With yesterday's git I first saw this in mainline, bisected in search of
that magic, but the easy reproducibility evaporated.  Oh well, fix the bug.
