Ian Kent [Wed, 22 Jun 2005 00:16:41 +0000]
[PATCH] autofs4: bad lookup fix

For browsable autofs maps, a mount request that arrives at the same time an
expire is happening can fail to perform the needed mount.

This happens becuase the directory exists and so the revalidate succeeds when
we need it to fail so that lookup is called on the same dentry to do the
mount.  Instead lookup is called on the next path component which should be
whithin the mount, but the parent isn't mounted.

The solution is to allow the revalidate to continue and perform the mount as
no directory creation (at mount time) is needed for browsable mount entries.

[PATCH] autofs4: post expire race fix

At the tail end of an expire it's possible for a process to enter
autofs4_wait, with a waitq type of NFY_NONE but find that the expire is
finished.  In this cause autofs4_wait will try to create a new wait but not
notify the daemon leading to a hang.  As the wait type is meant to delay mount
requests from revalidate or lookup during an expire and the expire is done all
we need to do is check if the dentry is a mountpoint.  If it's not then we're
done.

[PATCH] s390: memory detection > 32GB

The kernel takes a very long time to boot if the memory size is bigger then
32767 MB.  The memory size is contained in a structure created by an sclp
call.  The kernel accesses the field with a LH instrution which performs a
sign extension of a 16 bit word.  In the case of a memory size with bit 2^15
set this results in a very large value and the memory detection just loops for
a long time.  In addition if more then 64 GB are used on a 64 bit system the
memory size is read from an incorrect storage location.

Use zero-extention to read the 16 bit memory size and the correct offset to
read the 4 byte memory size on 64 bit.

[PATCH] uml: fix linkage of tt mode against NPTL

With Al Viro <viro@parcelfarce.linux.theplanet.co.uk>

To make sure switcheroo() can execute when we remap all the executable
image, we used a trick to make it use a local copy of errno...  this trick
does not work with NPTL glibc, only with LinuxThreads, so use another
(simpler) one to make it work anyway.

Hopefully, a lot improved thanks to merging with the version of Al Viro
(which had his part of problems, though, i.e.  removing a fix to another
bug and not fixing the problem on i386).

Paolo 'Blaisorblade' Giarrusso [Wed, 22 Jun 2005 00:16:19 +0000]
[PATCH] uml: add and use generic hw_controller_type->release

With Chris Wedgwood <cw@f00f.org>

Currently UML must explicitly call the UML-specific
free_irq_by_irq_and_dev() for each free_irq call it's done.

This is needed because ->shutdown and/or ->disable are only called when the
last "action" for that irq is removed.

Instead, for UML shared IRQs (UML IRQs are very often, if not always,
shared), for each dev_id some setup is done, which must be cleared on the
release of that fd.  For instance, for each open console a new instance
(i.e.  new dev_id) of the same IRQ is requested().

Exactly, a fd is stored in an array (pollfds), which is after read by a
host thread and passed to poll().  Each event registered by poll() triggers
an interrupt.  So, for each free_irq() we must remove the corresponding
host fd from the table, which we do via this -release() method.

In this patch we add an appropriate hook for this, and remove all uses of
it by pointing the hook to the said procedure; this is safe to do since the
said procedure.

Also some cosmetic improvements are included.

This is heavily based on some work by Chris Wedgwood, which however didn't
get the patch merged for something I'd call a "misunderstanding" (the need
for this patch wasn't cleanly explained, thus adding the generic hook was
felt as undesirable).

  within the same register), muddling resource ownership and initialization
  issues.  Centralizing this ownership in a core driver is desirable.

- The IOC4 chip implements multiple functions (serial, IDE, others not
  yet implemented in the mainline kernel) but is not a multifunction
  PCI device.  In order to properly handle device addition and removal
  as well as module insertion and deletion, an intermediary IOC4-specific
  driver layer is needed to handle these operations cleanly.

- All IOC4 drivers are currently enabled by a single CONFIG value.  As
  not all systems need all IOC4 functions, it is desireable to enable
  these drivers independently.

- The current IOC4 core driver will trigger loading of all function-level
  drivers, as it makes direct calls to them.  This situation should be
  reversed (i.e. function-level drivers cause loading of core driver)
  in order to maintain a clear and least-surprise driver loading model.

- IOC4 hardware design necessitates some driver-level dependency on
  the PCI bus clock speed.  Current code assumes a 66MHz bus, but the
  speed should be autodetected and appropriate compensation taken.

This patch series effects the above changes by a newly and better designed
IOC4 core driver with which the function-level drivers can register and
deregister themselves upon module insertion/removal.  By tracking these
modules, device addition/removal is also handled properly.  PCI resource
management and ownership issues are centralized in this core driver, and
IOC4-wide configuration actions such as bus speed detection are also
handled in this core driver.

This patch:

The SGI IOC4 I/O controller chip implements multiple functions, though it is
not a multi-function PCI device.  Additionally, various PCI resources of the
IOC4 are shared by multiple hardware functions, and thus resource ownership by
driver is not clearly delineated.  Due to the current driver design, all core
and subordinate drivers must be loaded, or none, which is undesirable if not
all IOC4 hardware features are being used.

This patch reorganizes the IOC4 drivers so that the core driver provides a
subdriver registration service.  Through appropriate callbacks the subdrivers
can now handle device addition and removal, as well as module insertion and
deletion (though the IOC4 IDE driver requires further work before module
deletion will work).  The core driver now takes care of allocating PCI
resources and data which must be shared between subdrivers, to clearly
delineate module ownership of these items.

[PATCH] ppc32: Clean up NUM_TLBCAMS usage for Freescale Book-E PPC's

Made the number of TLB CAM entries private and converted the board
consumers to use num_tlbcam_entries which is setup at boot time from
configuration registers.  This way the only consumers of the #define
NUM_TLBCAMS are the arrays used to manage the TLB.

Kumar Gala [Wed, 22 Jun 2005 00:15:25 +0000]
[PATCH] ppc32: Added support for all MPC8548 internal interrupts

The MPC8548 has 48 internal interrupts and 12 external interrupts.  The
previous generation PowerQUICC III devices only had 32 internal and 12
external interrupts on the primary interrupt controller.

Expanded the number of internal interrupts to 48 for all PowerQUICC III
processors and moved the interrupt numbers for the external after the 48
internal interrupt lines, rather than putting the 12 new internal
interrupts at the end and ifdef'ng the whole mess.  As parted of this
created a macro which represents the internal interrupt senses since they
are the same on all PQ3 processors.

[PATCH] msync: check pte dirty earlier

It's common practice to msync a large address range regularly, in which
often only a few ptes have actually been dirtied since the previous pass.

sync_pte_range then goes much faster if it tests whether pte is dirty
before locating and accessing each struct page cacheline; and it is hardly
slowed by ptep_clear_flush_dirty repeating that test in the opposite case,
when every pte actually is dirty.

But beware, s390's pte_dirty always says false, since its dirty bit is kept
in the storage key, located via the struct page address.  So skip this
optimization in its case: use a pte_maybe_dirty macro which just says true
if page_test_and_clear_dirty is implemented.

Hugh Dickins [Wed, 22 Jun 2005 00:15:12 +0000]
[PATCH] can_share_swap_page: use page_mapcount

Remember that ironic get_user_pages race?  when the raised page_count on a
page swapped out led do_wp_page to decide that it had to copy on write, so
substituted a different page into userspace.  2.6.7 onwards have Andrea's
solution, where try_to_unmap_one backs out if it finds page_count raised.

Which works, but is unsatisfying (rmap.c has no other page_count heuristics),
and was found a few months ago to hang an intensive page migration test.  A
year ago I was hesitant to engage page_mapcount, now it seems the right fix.

So remove the page_count hack from try_to_unmap_one; and use activate_page in
unuse_mm when dropping lock, to replace its secondary effect of helping
swapoff to make progress in that case.

Simplify can_share_swap_page (now called only on anonymous pages) to check
page_mapcount + page_swapcount == 1: still needs the page lock to stabilize
their (pessimistic) sum, but does not need swapper_space.tree_lock for that.

In do_swap_page, move swap_free and unlock_page below page_add_anon_rmap, to
keep sum on the high side, and correct when can_share_swap_page called.

[PATCH] shmem: restore superblock info

To improve shmem scalability, we allowed tmpfs instances which don't need
their blocks or inodes limited not to count them, and not to allocate any
sbinfo.  Which was okay when the only use for the sbinfo was accounting
blocks and inodes; but since then a couple of unrelated projects extending
tmpfs want to store other data in the sbinfo.  Whether either extension
reaches mainline is beside the point: I'm guilty of a bad design decision,
and should restore sbinfo to make any such future extensions easier.

So, once again allocate a shmem_sb_info for every shmem/tmpfs instance, and
now let max_blocks 0 indicate unlimited blocks, and max_inodes 0 unlimited
inodes.  Brent Casavant verified (many months ago) that this does not
perceptibly impact the scalability (since the unlimited sbinfo cacheline is
repeatedly accessed but only once dirtied).

And merge shmem_set_size into its sole caller shmem_remount_fs.

14 years ago[PATCH] ia64 uncached alloc
Jes Sorensen [Wed, 22 Jun 2005 00:15:02 +0000]
[PATCH] ia64 uncached alloc

This patch contains the ia64 uncached page allocator and the generic
allocator (genalloc).  The uncached allocator was formerly part of the SN2
mspec driver but there are several other users of it so it has been split
off from the driver.

The generic allocator can be used by device driver to manage special memory
etc.  The generic allocator is based on the allocator from the sym53c8xx_2
driver.

Various users on ia64 needs uncached memory.  The SGI SN architecture requires
it for inter-partition communication between partitions within a large NUMA
cluster.  The specific user for this is the XPC code.  Another application is
large MPI style applications which use it for synchronization, on SN this can
be done using special 'fetchop' operations but it also benefits non SN
hardware which may use regular uncached memory for this purpose.  Performance
of doing this through uncached vs cached memory is pretty substantial.  This
is handled by the mspec driver which I will push out in a seperate patch.

Rather than creating a specific allocator for just uncached memory I came up
with genalloc which is a generic purpose allocator that can be used by device
drivers and other subsystems as they please.  For instance to handle onboard
device memory.  It was derived from the sym53c7xx_2 driver's allocator which
is also an example of a potential user (I am refraining from modifying sym2
right now as it seems to have been under fairly heavy development recently).

On ia64 memory has various properties within a granule, ie.  it isn't safe to
access memory as uncached within the same granule as currently has memory
accessed in cached mode.  The regular system therefore doesn't utilize memory
in the lower granules which is mixed in with device PAL code etc.  The
uncached driver walks the EFI memmap and pulls out the spill uncached pages
and sticks them into the uncached pool.  Only after these chunks have been
utilized, will it start converting regular cached memory into uncached memory.
Hence the reason for the EFI related code additions.

[PATCH] Reduce size of huge boot per_cpu_pageset

Reduce size of the huge per_cpu_pageset structure in __initdata introduced
into mm1 with the pageset localization patchset.  Use one specially
configured pageset per cpu for all zones and nodes during bootup.

- Avoid duplication of pageset initialization code.
- do the adding to the pageset list before potential free_pages_bulk
  in free_hot_cold_page (otherwise we would have to hold a page
  in a pageset during the period that the boot pagesets are in use).
- remove mistaken __cpuinitdata attribute and revert back to __initdata
  for the boot pageset. A boot pageset is not necessary for cpu hotplug.

Christoph Lameter [Wed, 22 Jun 2005 00:14:57 +0000]
[PATCH] Periodically drain non local pagesets

The pageset array can potentially acquire a huge amount of memory on large
NUMA systems.  F.e.  on a system with 512 processors and 256 nodes there
will be 256*512 pagesets.  If each pageset only holds 5 pages then we are
talking about 655360 pages.With a 16K page size on IA64 this results in
potentially 10 Gigabytes of memory being trapped in pagesets.  The typical
cases are much less for smaller systems but there is still the potential of
memory being trapped in off node pagesets.  Off node memory may be rarely
used if local memory is available and so we may potentially have memory in
seldom used pagesets without this patch.

The slab allocator flushes its per cpu caches every 2 seconds.  The
following patch flushes the off node pageset caches in the same way by
tying into the slab flush.

The patch also changes /proc/zoneinfo to include the number of pages
currently in each pageset.

[PATCH] mmap topdown fix for large stack limit, large allocation

The topdown changes in 2.6.12-rc1 can cause large allocations with large
stack limit to fail, despite there being space available.  The
mmap_base-len is only valid when len >= mmap_base.  However, nothing in
topdown allocator checks this.  It's only (now) caught at higher level,
which will cause allocation to simply fail.  The following change restores
the fallback to bottom-up path, which will allow large allocations with
large stack limit to potentially still succeed.

14 years ago[PATCH] Avoiding mmap fragmentation
Wolfgang Wander [Wed, 22 Jun 2005 00:14:49 +0000]
[PATCH] Avoiding mmap fragmentation

Ingo recently introduced a great speedup for allocating new mmaps using the
free_area_cache pointer which boosts the specweb SSL benchmark by 4-5% and
causes huge performance increases in thread creation.

The downside of this patch is that it does lead to fragmentation in the
mmap-ed areas (visible via /proc/self/maps), such that some applications
that work fine under 2.4 kernels quickly run out of memory on any 2.6
kernel.

The problem is twofold:

  1) the free_area_cache is used to continue a search for memory where
     the last search ended.  Before the change new areas were always
     searched from the base address on.

     So now new small areas are cluttering holes of all sizes
     throughout the whole mmap-able region whereas before small holes
     tended to close holes near the base leaving holes far from the base
     large and available for larger requests.

  2) the free_area_cache also is set to the location of the last
     munmap-ed area so in scenarios where we allocate e.g.  five regions of
     1K each, then free regions 4 2 3 in this order the next request for 1K
     will be placed in the position of the old region 3, whereas before we
     appended it to the still active region 1, placing it at the location
     of the old region 2.  Before we had 1 free region of 2K, now we only
     get two free regions of 1K -> fragmentation.

The patch addresses thes issues by introducing yet another cache descriptor
cached_hole_size that contains the largest known hole size below the
current free_area_cache.  If a new request comes in the size is compared
against the cached_hole_size and if the request can be filled with a hole
below free_area_cache the search is started from the base instead.

The results look promising: Whereas 2.6.12-rc4 fragments quickly and my
(earlier posted) leakme.c test program terminates after 50000+ iterations
with 96 distinct and fragmented maps in /proc/self/maps it performs nicely
(as expected) with thread creation, Ingo's test_str02 with 20000 threads
requires 0.7s system time.

Taking out Ingo's patch (un-patch available per request) by basically
deleting all mentions of free_area_cache from the kernel and starting the
search for new memory always at the respective bases we observe: leakme
terminates successfully with 11 distinctive hardly fragmented areas in
/proc/self/maps but thread creating is gringdingly slow: 30+s(!) system
time for Ingo's test_str02 with 20000 threads.

Now - drumroll ;-) the appended patch works fine with leakme: it ends with
only 7 distinct areas in /proc/self/maps and also thread creation seems
sufficiently fast with 0.71s for 20000 threads.

14 years ago[PATCH] node local per-cpu-pages
Christoph Lameter [Wed, 22 Jun 2005 00:14:47 +0000]
[PATCH] node local per-cpu-pages

This patch modifies the way pagesets in struct zone are managed.

Each zone has a per-cpu array of pagesets.  So any particular CPU has some
memory in each zone structure which belongs to itself.  Even if that CPU is
not local to that zone.

So the patch relocates the pagesets for each cpu to the node that is nearest
to the cpu instead of allocating the pagesets in the (possibly remote) target
zone.  This means that the operations to manage pages on remote zone can be
done with information available locally.

We play a macro trick so that non-NUMA pmachines avoid the additional
pointer chase on the page allocator fastpath.

14 years ago[PATCH] Hugepage consolidation
David Gibson [Wed, 22 Jun 2005 00:14:44 +0000]
[PATCH] Hugepage consolidation

A lot of the code in arch/*/mm/hugetlbpage.c is quite similar.  This patch
attempts to consolidate a lot of the code across the arch's, putting the
combined version in mm/hugetlb.c.  There are a couple of uglyish hacks in
order to covert all the hugepage archs, but the result is a very large
reduction in the total amount of code.  It also means things like hugepage
lazy allocation could be implemented in one place, instead of six.

Tested, at least a little, on ppc64, i386 and x86_64.

Notes:
- this patch changes the meaning of set_huge_pte() to be more
  analagous to set_pte()
- does SH4 need s special huge_ptep_get_and_clear()??
