perf events: Account PERF_RECORD_LOST events in event__process

Right now this function is only used by perf top, that uses PROT_READ
only, i.e. overwrite mode, so no PERF_RECORD_LOST events are generated,
but don't forget those events.

The patch that moved this out of perf top was made so that this routine
could be used by 'perf probe' in the uprobes patchset, so perhaps there
they need to check for LOST events and warn the user, as will be done in
the following patches that will switch 'perf top' to non overwrite mode
(mmap with PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE).

perf tools: Add strfilter for general purpose string filter

Add strfilter for general purpose string filter.

Every filter rules are descrived by glob matching pattern and '!' prefix
which means Logical NOT.

A strfilter consists of those filter rules connected with '&' and '|'.

A set of rules can be folded by using '(' and ')'.

It also accepts spaces around rules and those operators.

Format:
<rule> ::= <glob-exp> | "!" <rule> | <rule> <op> <rule> | "(" <rule> ")"
<op> ::= "&" | "|"

e.g.:

 "(add* | del*) & *timer" filter rules pass strings which start with add
 or del and end with timer.

This will be used by perf probe --filter.

Changes in V2:
 - Fix to check result of strdup() and strfilter__alloc().
 - Encapsulate and simplify interfaces as like regex(3).

__alloc_pages_nodemask
__alloc_percpu
__alloc_reserved_percpu
__alloc_skb
__alloc_workqueue_key
__any_online_cpu
__ata_ehi_push_desc
...

This also supports symbols in module, e.g.

...
cleanup_module
cpuid_maxphyaddr
emulate_clts
emulate_instruction
emulate_int_real
emulate_invlpg
emulator_get_dr
emulator_set_dr

8 years agoperf callchain: Feed callchains into a cursor
Frederic Weisbecker [Fri, 14 Jan 2011 03:51:58 +0000]
perf callchain: Feed callchains into a cursor

The callchains are fed with an array of a fixed size.
As a result we iterate over each callchains three times:

- 1st to resolve symbols
- 2nd to filter out context boundaries
- 3rd for the insertion into the tree

This also involves some pairs of memory allocation/deallocation
everytime we insert a callchain, for the filtered out array of
addresses and for the array of symbols that comes along.

Instead, feed the callchains through a linked list with persistent
allocations. It brings several pros like:

- Merge the 1st and 2nd iterations in one. That was possible before
but in a way that would involve allocating an array slightly taller
than necessary because we don't know in advance the number of context
boundaries to filter out.

- Much lesser allocations/deallocations. The linked list keeps
persistent empty entries for the next usages and is extendable at
will.

- Makes it easier for multiple sources of callchains to feed a
stacktrace together. This is deemed to pave the way for cfi based
callchains wherein traditional frame pointer based kernel
stacktraces will precede cfi based user ones, producing an overall
callchain which size is hardly predictable. This requirement
makes the static array obsolete and makes a linked list based
iterator a much more flexible fit.

Basic testing on a big perf file containing callchains (~ 176 MB)
has shown a throughput gain of about 11% with perf report.

8 years agoperf test: Add test for the evlist mmap routines
Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo [Sat, 15 Jan 2011 12:42:46 +0000]
perf test: Add test for the evlist mmap routines

This test will generate random numbers of calls to some getpid syscalls,
then establish an mmap for a group of events that are created to monitor
these syscalls.

It will receive the events, using mmap, use its PERF_SAMPLE_ID generated
sample.id field to map back to its respective perf_evsel instance.

Then it checks if the number of syscalls reported as perf events by the
kernel corresponds to the number of syscalls made.

8 years agoperf evlist: Move the mmap array from perf_evsel
Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo [Thu, 13 Jan 2011 00:39:13 +0000]
perf evlist: Move the mmap array from perf_evsel

Adopting the new model used in 'perf record', where we don't have a map
per thread per cpu, instead we have an mmap per cpu, established on the
first fd for that cpu and ask the kernel using the
PERF_EVENT_IOC_SET_OUTPUT ioctl to send events for the other fds on that
cpu for the one with the mmap.

The methods moved from perf_evsel to perf_evlist, but for easing review
they were modified in place, in evsel.c, the next patch will move the
migrated methods to evlist.c.

With this 'perf top' now uses the same mmap model used by 'perf record'
and the next patches will make 'perf record' use these new routines,
establishing a common codebase for both tools.

perf: perf_event_exit_task_context: s/rcu_dereference/rcu_dereference_raw/

In theory, almost every user of task->child->perf_event_ctxp[]
is wrong. find_get_context() can install the new context at any
moment, we need read_barrier_depends().

dbe08d82ce3967ccdf459f7951d02589cf967300 "perf: Fix
find_get_context() vs perf_event_exit_task() race" added
rcu_dereference() into perf_event_exit_task_context() to make
the precedent, but this makes __rcu_dereference_check() unhappy.
Use rcu_dereference_raw() to shut up the warning.

8 years agoperf symbols: Fix annotation of thumb code

perf symbols: Fix annotation of thumb code

In ARM's Thumb mode the bottom bit of the symbol address is set to mark
the function as Thumb; the instructions are in reality 2 or 4 byte on 2
byte alignments, and when the +1 address is used in annotate it causes
objdump to disassemble invalid instructions.

The patch removes that bottom bit during symbol loading.

perf: Annotate cpuctx->ctx.mutex to avoid a lockdep splat

Lockdep spotted:

loop_1b_instruc/1899 is trying to acquire lock:
 (event_mutex){+.+.+.}, at: [<ffffffff810e1908>] perf_trace_init+0x3b/0x2f7

but task is already holding lock:
 (&ctx->mutex){+.+.+.}, at: [<ffffffff810eb45b>] perf_event_init_context+0xc0/0x218

which lock already depends on the new lock.

the existing dependency chain (in reverse order) is:

-> #3 (&ctx->mutex){+.+.+.}:
-> #2 (cpu_hotplug.lock){+.+.+.}:
-> #1 (module_mutex){+.+...}:
-> #0 (event_mutex){+.+.+.}:

But because the deadlock would be cpuhotplug (cpu-event) vs fork
(task-event) it cannot, in fact, happen. We can annotate this by giving the
perf_event_context used for the cpuctx a different lock class from those
used by tasks.

8 years agoperf: Fix find_get_context() vs perf_event_exit_task() race
Oleg Nesterov [Wed, 19 Jan 2011 18:22:07 +0000]
perf: Fix find_get_context() vs perf_event_exit_task() race

find_get_context() must not install the new perf_event_context
if the task has already passed perf_event_exit_task().

If nothing else, this means the memory leak. Initially
ctx->refcount == 2, it is supposed that
perf_event_exit_task_context() should participate and do the
necessary put_ctx().

find_lively_task_by_vpid() checks PF_EXITING but this buys
nothing, by the time we call find_get_context() this task can be
already dead. To the point, cmpxchg() can succeed when the task
has already done the last schedule().

Change find_get_context() to populate task->perf_event_ctxp[]
under task->perf_event_mutex, this way we can trust PF_EXITING
because perf_event_exit_task() takes the same mutex.

Also, change perf_event_exit_task_context() to use
rcu_dereference(). Probably this is not strictly needed, but
with or without this change find_get_context() can race with
setup_new_exec()->perf_event_exit_task(), rcu_dereference()
looks better.

MIPS: ath79: add common watchdog device

All supported SoCs have a built-in hardware watchdog driver. This patch
registers a platform_device for that to make it usable.

MIPS: Add initial support for the Atheros AR71XX/AR724X/AR931X SoCs

This patch adds initial support for various Atheros SoCs based on the
MIPS 24Kc core. The following models are supported at the moment:

  - AR7130
  - AR7141
  - AR7161
  - AR9130
  - AR9132
  - AR7240
  - AR7241
  - AR7242

The current patch contains minimal support only, but the resulting
kernel can boot into user-space with using of an initramfs image on
various boards which are using these SoCs. Support for more built-in
devices and individual boards will be implemented in further patches.

MIPS: Use WARN() in uasm for better diagnostics.

On the off chance that uasm ever warns about overflow, there is no way
to know what the offending instruction is.

Change the printks to WARNs, so we can get a nice stack trace.  It has
the added benefit of being much more noticeable than the short single
line warning message, so is less likely to be ignored.

This patch adds a generic solution to support multiple machines based on
a given SoC within a single kernel image. It is implemented already for
several other architectures but MIPS has no generic support for that yet.

[Ralf: This competes with DT but DT is a much more complex solution and this
code has been used by OpenWRT for a long time so for now DT is a bad reason
to stop the merge but longer term this should be migrated to DT.]

perf: Fix contexted inheritance

Linus reported that the RCU lockdep annotation bits triggered for this
rcu_dereference() because we're not holding rcu_read_lock().

Going over the code I cannot convince myself its correct:

 - holding a ref on the parent_ctx, doesn't avoid it being uncloned
   concurrently (as the comment says), so we can race with a free.

 - holding parent_ctx->mutex doesn't avoid the above free from taking
   place either, it would at best avoid parent_ctx from being freed.

I.e. the warning is correct. To fix the bug, serialize against the
unclone_ctx() call by extending the reach of the parent_ctx->lock.

The reason of the boot panic is that we have 'jiffies = jiffies_64;' in
vmlinux.lds.S. The jiffies isn't in any section. In kernel build, there is
warning saying jiffies is an absolute address and can't be relocatable. At
runtime, jiffies will have virtual address 0.
