11 years agomd: reduce CPU wastage on idle md array with a write-intent bitmap
NeilBrown [Tue, 4 Mar 2008 22:29:30 +0000]
md: reduce CPU wastage on idle md array with a write-intent bitmap

On an md array with a write-intent bitmap, a thread wakes up every few seconds
and scans the bitmap looking for work to do.  If the array is idle, there will
be no work to do, but a lot of scanning is done to discover this.

So cache the fact that the bitmap is completely clean, and avoid scanning the
whole bitmap when the cache is known to be clean.

11 years agomd: fix deadlock in md/raid1 and md/raid10 when handling a read error
NeilBrown [Tue, 4 Mar 2008 22:29:29 +0000]
md: fix deadlock in md/raid1 and md/raid10 when handling a read error

When handling a read error, we freeze the array to stop any other IO while
attempting to over-write with correct data.

This is done in the raid1d(raid10d) thread and must wait for all submitted IO
to complete (except for requests that failed and are sitting in the retry
queue - these are counted in ->nr_queue and will stay there during a freeze).

However write requests need attention from raid1d as bitmap updates might be
required.  This can cause a deadlock as raid1 is waiting for requests to
finish that themselves need attention from raid1d.

So we create a new function 'flush_pending_writes' to give that attention, and
call it in freeze_array to be sure that we aren't waiting on raid1d.

Thanks to "K.Tanaka" <k-tanaka@ce.jp.nec.com> for finding and reporting this
problem.

eCryptfs: make ecryptfs_prepare_write decrypt the page

When the page is not up to date, ecryptfs_prepare_write() should be
acting much like ecryptfs_readpage(). This includes the painfully
obvious step of actually decrypting the page contents read from the
lower encrypted file.

Note that this patch resolves a bug in eCryptfs in 2.6.24 that one can
produce with these steps:

# mount -t ecryptfs /secret /secret
# echo "abc" > /secret/file.txt
# umount /secret
# mount -t ecryptfs /secret /secret
# echo "def" >> /secret/file.txt
# cat /secret/file.txt

Without this patch, the resulting data returned from cat is likely to
be something other than "abc\ndef\n".

11 years agomemcg: fix oops on NULL lru list
Hugh Dickins [Tue, 4 Mar 2008 22:29:16 +0000]
memcg: fix oops on NULL lru list

While testing force_empty, during an exit_mmap, __mem_cgroup_remove_list
called from mem_cgroup_uncharge_page oopsed on a NULL pointer in the lru list.
 I couldn't see what racing tasks on other cpus were doing, but surmise that
another must have been in mem_cgroup_charge_common on the same page, between
its unlock_page_cgroup and spin_lock_irqsave near done (thanks to that kzalloc
which I'd almost changed to a kmalloc).

Normally such a race cannot happen, the ref_cnt prevents it, the final
uncharge cannot race with the initial charge.  But force_empty buggers the
ref_cnt, that's what it's all about; and thereafter forced pages are
vulnerable to races such as this (just think of a shared page also mapped into
an mm of another mem_cgroup than that just emptied).  And remain vulnerable
until they're freed indefinitely later.

This patch just fixes the oops by moving the unlock_page_cgroups down below
adding to and removing from the list (only possible given the previous patch);
and while we're at it, we might as well make it an invariant that
page->page_cgroup is always set while pc is on lru.

But this behaviour of force_empty seems highly unsatisfactory to me: why have
a ref_cnt if we always have to cope with it being violated (as in the earlier
page migration patch).  We may prefer force_empty to move pages to an orphan
mem_cgroup (could be the root, but better not), from which other cgroups could
recover them; we might need to reverse the locking again; but no time now for
such concerns.

11 years agomemcg: simplify force_empty and move_lists
Hirokazu Takahashi [Tue, 4 Mar 2008 22:29:15 +0000]
memcg: simplify force_empty and move_lists

As for force_empty, though this may not be the main topic here,
mem_cgroup_force_empty_list() can be implemented simpler.  It is possible to
make the function just call mem_cgroup_uncharge_page() instead of releasing
page_cgroups by itself.  The tip is to call get_page() before invoking
mem_cgroup_uncharge_page(), so the page won't be released during this
function.

Kamezawa-san points out that by the time mem_cgroup_uncharge_page() uncharges,
the page might have been reassigned to an lru of a different mem_cgroup, and
now be emptied from that; but Hugh claims that's okay, the end state is the
same as when it hasn't gone to another list.

And once force_empty stops taking lock_page_cgroup within mz->lru_lock,
mem_cgroup_move_lists() can be simplified to take mz->lru_lock directly while
holding page_cgroup lock (but still has to use try_lock_page_cgroup).

Hugh Dickins [Tue, 4 Mar 2008 22:29:13 +0000]
memcg: fix mem_cgroup_move_lists locking

Ever since the VM_BUG_ON(page_get_page_cgroup(page)) (now Bad page state) went
into page freeing, I've hit it from time to time in testing on some machines,
sometimes only after many days.  Recently found a machine which could usually
produce it within a few hours, which got me there at last.

The culprit is mem_cgroup_move_lists, whose locking is inadequate; and the
arrangement of structures was such that you got page_cgroups from the lru list
neatly put on to SLUB's freelist.  Kamezawa-san identified the same hole
independently.

The main problem was that it was missing the lock_page_cgroup it needs to
safely page_get_page_cgroup; but it's tricky to go beyond that too, and I
couldn't do it with SLAB_DESTROY_BY_RCU as I'd expected.  See the code for
comments on the constraints.

This patch immediately gets replaced by a simpler one from Hirokazu-san; but
is it just foolish pride that tells me to put this one on record, in case we
need to come back to it later?

memcg: css_put after remove_list

mem_cgroup_uncharge_page does css_put on the mem_cgroup before uncharging from
it, and before removing page_cgroup from one of its lru lists: isn't there a
danger that struct mem_cgroup memory could be freed and reused before
completing that, so corrupting something?  Never seen it, and for all I know
there may be other constraints which make it impossible; but let's be
defensive and reverse the ordering there.

mem_cgroup_force_empty_list is safe because there's an extra css_get around
all its works; but even so, change its ordering the same way round, to help
get in the habit of doing it like this.

11 years agomemcg: remove clear_page_cgroup and atomics
Hugh Dickins [Tue, 4 Mar 2008 22:29:11 +0000]
memcg: remove clear_page_cgroup and atomics

Remove clear_page_cgroup: it's an unhelpful helper, see for example how
mem_cgroup_uncharge_page had to unlock_page_cgroup just in order to call it
(serious races from that?  I'm not sure).

Once that's gone, you can see it's pointless for page_cgroup's ref_cnt to be
atomic: it's always manipulated under lock_page_cgroup, except where
force_empty unilaterally reset it to 0 (and how does uncharge's
atomic_dec_and_test protect against that?).

Simplify this page_cgroup locking: if you've got the lock and the pc is
attached, then the ref_cnt must be positive: VM_BUG_ONs to check that, and to
check that pc->page matches page (we're on the way to finding why sometimes it
doesn't, but this patch doesn't fix that).

11 years agomemcg: memcontrol uninlined and static
Hugh Dickins [Tue, 4 Mar 2008 22:29:10 +0000]
memcg: memcontrol uninlined and static

More cleanup to memcontrol.c, this time changing some of the code generated.
Let the compiler decide what to inline (except for page_cgroup_locked which is
only used when CONFIG_DEBUG_VM): the __always_inline on lock_page_cgroup etc.
was quite a waste since bit_spin_lock etc.  are inlines in a header file; made
mem_cgroup_force_empty and mem_cgroup_write_strategy static.

memcg: memcontrol whitespace cleanups

Sorry, before getting down to more important changes, I'd like to do some
cleanup in memcontrol.c.  This patch doesn't change the code generated, but
cleans up whitespace, moves up a double declaration, removes an unused enum,
removes void returns, removes misleading comments, that kind of thing.

memcg: remove mem_cgroup_uncharge

Nothing uses mem_cgroup_uncharge apart from mem_cgroup_uncharge_page, (a
trivial wrapper around it) and mem_cgroup_end_migration (which does the same
as mem_cgroup_uncharge_page).  And it often ends up having to lock just to let
its caller unlock.  Remove it (but leave the silly locking until a later
patch).

Moved mem_cgroup_cache_charge next to mem_cgroup_charge in memcontrol.h.

11 years agomemcg: mem_cgroup_charge never NULL
Hugh Dickins [Tue, 4 Mar 2008 22:29:08 +0000]
memcg: mem_cgroup_charge never NULL

My memcgroup patch to fix hang with shmem/tmpfs added NULL page handling to
mem_cgroup_charge_common.  It seemed convenient at the time, but hard to
justify now: there's a perfectly appropriate swappage to charge and uncharge
instead, this is not on any hot path through shmem_getpage, and no performance
hit was observed from the slight extra overhead.

So revert that NULL page handling from mem_cgroup_charge_common; and make it
clearer by bringing page_cgroup_assign_new_page_cgroup into its body - that
was a helper I found more of a hindrance to understanding.

11 years agomemcg: bad page if page_cgroup when free
Hugh Dickins [Tue, 4 Mar 2008 22:29:07 +0000]
memcg: bad page if page_cgroup when free

Replace free_hot_cold_page's VM_BUG_ON(page_get_page_cgroup(page)) by a "Bad
page state" and clear: most users don't have CONFIG_DEBUG_VM on, and if it
were set here, it'd likely cause corruption when the page is reused.

Don't use page_assign_page_cgroup to clear it: that should be private to
memcontrol.c, and always called with the lock taken; and memmap_init_zone
doesn't need it either - like page->mapping and other pointers throughout the
kernel, Linux assumes pointers in zeroed structures are NULL pointers.

Instead use page_reset_bad_cgroup, added to memcontrol.h for this only.

11 years agomemcg: fix VM_BUG_ON from page migration
Hugh Dickins [Tue, 4 Mar 2008 22:29:06 +0000]
memcg: fix VM_BUG_ON from page migration

Page migration gave me free_hot_cold_page's VM_BUG_ON page->page_cgroup.
remove_migration_pte was calling mem_cgroup_charge on the new page whenever it
found a swap pte, before it had determined it to be a migration entry.  That
left a surplus reference count on the page_cgroup, so it was still attached
when the page was later freed.

Move that mem_cgroup_charge down to where we're sure it's a migration entry.
We were already under i_mmap_lock or anon_vma->lock, so its GFP_KERNEL was
already inappropriate: change that to GFP_ATOMIC.

It's essential that remove_migration_pte removes all the migration entries,
other crashes follow if not.  So proceed even when the charge fails: normally
it cannot, but after a mem_cgroup_force_empty it might - comment in the code.

Jesper Nilsson [Tue, 4 Mar 2008 22:28:52 +0000]
CRIS: Import string.c (memcpy) from newlib: fixes compile error with gcc 4

Adrian Bunk reported another compile error with a SVN head GCC:

...
CC arch/cris/arch-v10/lib/string.o
/home/bunk/linux/kernel-2.6/git/linux-2.6/arch/cris/arch-v10/lib/string.c:138:
error: lvalue required as increment operand
/home/bunk/linux/kernel-2.6/git/linux-2.6/arch/cris/arch-v10/lib/string.c:138:

/home/bunk/linux/kernel-2.6/git/linux-2.6/arch/cris/arch-v10/lib/string.c:139:
error: lvalue required as increment operand
...

This is due to the use of the construct:

*((long*)dst)++ = lc;

Which isn't legal since casts don't return an lvalue.

The solution is to import the implementation from newlib,
which is continually autotested together with GCC mainline,
and uses the construct:

*(long *) dst = lc; dst += 4;

Since this is an import of a file from newlib, I'm not touching
the formatting or correcting any checkpatch errors.

As for the earlier fix for memset.c, even if the two files for
CRIS v10 and CRIS v32 are identical at the moment, it might
be possible to tweak the CRIS v32 version.
Thus, I'm not yet folding them into the same file, at least not
until we've done some research on it.

ndelay(): switch to C function to avoid 64-bit division

We should be able to do ndelay(some_u64), but that can cause a call to
__divdi3() to be emitted because the ndelay() macros does a divide.

Fix it by switching to static inline which will force the u64 arg to be
treated as an unsigned long.  udelay() takes an unsigned long arg.

11 years agoalloc_percpu() fails to allocate percpu data
Eric Dumazet [Tue, 4 Mar 2008 22:28:35 +0000]
alloc_percpu() fails to allocate percpu data

Some oprofile results obtained while using tbench on a 2x2 cpu machine were
very surprising.

For example, loopback_xmit() function was using high number of cpu cycles
to perform the statistic updates, supposed to be real cheap since they use
percpu data

        pcpu_lstats = netdev_priv(dev);
        lb_stats = per_cpu_ptr(pcpu_lstats, smp_processor_id());
        lb_stats->packets++;  /* HERE : serious contention */
        lb_stats->bytes += skb->len;

struct pcpu_lstats is a small structure containing two longs.  It appears
that on my 32bits platform, alloc_percpu(8) allocates a single cache line,
instead of giving to each cpu a separate cache line.

Using the following patch gave me impressive boost in various benchmarks
( 6 % in tbench)
(all percpu_counters hit this bug too)

Long term fix (ie >= 2.6.26) would be to let each CPU allocate their own
block of memory, so that we dont need to roudup sizes to L1_CACHE_BYTES, or
merging the SGI stuff of course...

Note : SLUB vs SLAB is important here to *show* the improvement, since they
dont have the same minimum allocation sizes (8 bytes vs 32 bytes).  This
could very well explain regressions some guys reported when they switched
to SLUB.

Commit 2f569afd9ced9ebec9a6eb3dbf6f83429be0a7b4
(CONFIG_HIGHPTE vs. sub-page page tables) introduced use of
inc_zone_page_state and dec_zone_page_state in include/linux/mm.h.

Those are defined in include/linux/vmstat.h, but after it includes
mm.h, making it impossible to include vmstat.h since inc_zone_page_state
and dec_zone_page_state then would be undefined.

arch/cris/arch-v10/kernel/time.c does just this, which makes the
CRIS v10 build break with the following error:

resolve boot problem reported by Mel Gorman:

   http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/2/13/404

init_cpu_to_node will use cpu->apic (from MADT or mptable) and
apic->node(from SRAT or AMD config space with k8_bus_64.c) to have
cpu->node mapping, and later identify_cpu will overwrite them
again...(with nearby_node...)

this patch checks if the node is online, otherwise it will not
update cpu_node map. so keep cpu_node map to online node before
identify_cpu..., to prevent possible error.

x86, i387: fix ptrace leakage using init_fpu()

This bug got introduced by the recent i387 merge:

  commit 4421011120b2304e5c248ae4165a2704588aedf1
  Author: Roland McGrath <roland@redhat.com>
  Date:   Wed Jan 30 13:31:50 2008 +0100

      x86: x86 i387 user_regset

Current usage of unlazy_fpu() in ptrace specific routines is wrong.
unlazy_fpu() will not init fpu if the task never used math. So the
ptrace calls can expose the parent tasks FPU data in some cases.

Replace it with the init_fpu() which will init the math state, if the
task never used math before.

11 years agofreezer vs stopped or traced
Roland McGrath [Tue, 4 Mar 2008 04:22:05 +0000]
freezer vs stopped or traced

This changes the "freezer" code used by suspend/hibernate in its treatment
of tasks in TASK_STOPPED (job control stop) and TASK_TRACED (ptrace) states.

As I understand it, the intent of the "freezer" is to hold all tasks
from doing anything significant.  For this purpose, TASK_STOPPED and
TASK_TRACED are "frozen enough".  It's possible the tasks might resume
from ptrace calls (if the tracer were unfrozen) or from signals
(including ones that could come via timer interrupts, etc).  But this
doesn't matter as long as they quickly block again while "freezing" is
in effect.  Some minor adjustments to the signal.c code make sure that
try_to_freeze() very shortly follows all wakeups from both kinds of
stop.  This lets the freezer code safely leave stopped tasks unmolested.

Changing this fixes the longstanding bug of seeing after resuming from
suspend/hibernate your shell report "[1] Stopped" and the like for all
your jobs stopped by ^Z et al, as if you had freshly fg'd and ^Z'd them.
It also removes from the freezer the arcane special case treatment for
ptrace'd tasks, which relied on intimate knowledge of ptrace internals.

x86: disable KVM for Voyager and friends

Most classic Pentiums don't have hardware virtualization extension,
and building kvm with Voyager, Visual Workstation, or NUMAQ
generates spurious failures.

11 years agoKVM: VMX: Avoid rearranging switched guest msrs while they are loaded
Avi Kivity [Wed, 27 Feb 2008 14:06:57 +0000]
KVM: VMX: Avoid rearranging switched guest msrs while they are loaded

KVM tries to run as much as possible with the guest msrs loaded instead of
host msrs, since switching msrs is very expensive.  It also tries to minimize
the number of msrs switched according to the guest mode; for example,
MSR_LSTAR is needed only by long mode guests.  This optimization is done by
setup_msrs().

However, we must not change which msrs are switched while we are running with
guest msr state:

 - switch to guest msr state
 - call setup_msrs(), removing some msrs from the list
 - switch to host msr state, leaving a few guest msrs loaded

An easy way to trigger this is to kexec an x86_64 linux guest.  Early during
setup, the guest will switch EFER to not include SCE.  KVM will stop saving
MSR_LSTAR, and on the next msr switch it will leave the guest LSTAR loaded.
The next host syscall will end up in a random location in the kernel.

Fix by reloading the host msrs before changing the msr list.

11 years agoKVM: MMU: Fix race when instantiating a shadow pte

KVM: MMU: Fix race when instantiating a shadow pte

For improved concurrency, the guest walk is performed concurrently with other
vcpus.  This means that we need to revalidate the guest ptes once we have
write-protected the guest page tables, at which point they can no longer be
modified.

The current code attempts to avoid this check if the shadow page table is not
new, on the assumption that if it has existed before, the guest could not have
modified the pte without the shadow lock.  However the assumption is incorrect,
as the racing vcpu could have modified the pte, then instantiated the shadow
page, before our vcpu regains control:

  vcpu0        vcpu1

  fault
  walk pte

               modify pte
               fault in same pagetable
               instantiate shadow page

  lookup shadow page
  conclude it is old
  instantiate spte based on stale guest pte

We could do something clever with generation counters, but a test run by
Marcelo suggests this is unnecessary and we can just do the revalidation
unconditionally.  The pte will be in the processor cache and the check can
be quite fast.

11 years agoKVM: Route irq 0 to vcpu 0 exclusively

KVM: Route irq 0 to vcpu 0 exclusively

Some Linux versions allow the timer interrupt to be processed by more than
one cpu, leading to hangs due to tsc instability.  Work around the issue
by only disaptching the interrupt to vcpu 0.

Problem analyzed (and patch tested) by Sheng Yang.
