9 years agopty: fix data loss when stopped (^S/^Q)
Linus Torvalds [Mon, 10 Aug 2009 20:21:19 +0000]
pty: fix data loss when stopped (^S/^Q)

Commit d945cb9cc ("pty: Rework the pty layer to use the normal buffering
logic") dropped the test for 'tty->stopped' in pty_write_room(), which
then causes the n_tty line discipline thing to not throttle the data
properly when the tty is stopped.

So instead of pausing the write due to the tty being stopped, the ldisc
layer would go ahead and push it down to the pty.  The pty write()
routine would then refuse to take the data (because it _did_ check
'stopped'), and the data wouldn't actually be written.

This whole stopped test should eventually be moved into the tty ldisc
layer rather than have low-level tty drivers care about these things,
but right now the fix is to just re-instate the missing pty 'stopped'
handling.

9 years agox86: Fix serialization in pit_expect_msb()
Linus Torvalds [Fri, 31 Jul 2009 19:45:41 +0000]
x86: Fix serialization in pit_expect_msb()

Wei Chong Tan reported a fast-PIT-calibration corner-case:

| pit_expect_msb() is vulnerable to SMI disturbance corner case
| in some platforms which causes /proc/cpuinfo to show wrong
| CPU MHz value when quick_pit_calibrate() jumps to success
| section.

I think that the real issue isn't even an SMI - but the fact
that in the very last iteration of the loop, there's no
serializing instruction _after_ the last 'rdtsc'. So even in
the absense of SMI's, we do have a situation where the cycle
counter was read without proper serialization.

The last check should be done outside the outer loop, since
_inside_ the outer loop, we'll be testing that the PIT has
the right MSB value has the right value in the next iteration.

So only the _last_ iteration is special, because that's the one
that will not check the PIT MSB value any more, and because the
final 'get_cycles()' isn't serialized.

In other words:

 - I'd like to move the PIT MSB check to after the last
   iteration, rather than in every iteration

 - I think we should comment on the fact that it's also a
   serializing instruction and so 'fences in' the TSC read.

Here's a suggested replacement.

9 years agoperf_counter: Subtract the buffer size field from the event record size
Frederic Weisbecker [Mon, 10 Aug 2009 14:11:32 +0000]
perf_counter: Subtract the buffer size field from the event record size

We compute the perf raw sample size by aligning the raw ftrace
event size plus the buffer size field itself. We do that
instead of aligning only the perf raw sample size, so that we
might economize some in some cases.

But this buffer size field is not stored in the perf raw
sample, we must then substract its size from the buffer once we
computed the alignment unless we may get a useless u32 field in
the buffer.

The problem is minor, but without ->cred_guard_mutex held we can race
with exec() and get the new ->mm but check old creds.

Now we do not need to re-check task->mm after ptrace_may_access(), it
can't be changed to the new mm under us.

Strictly speaking, this also fixes another very minor problem. Unless
security check fails or the task exits mm_for_maps() should never
return NULL, the caller should get either old or new ->mm.

mm_for_maps: simplify, use ptrace_may_access()

It would be nice to kill __ptrace_may_access(). It requires task_lock(),
but this lock is only needed to read mm->flags in the middle.

Convert mm_for_maps() to use ptrace_may_access(), this also simplifies
the code a little bit.

Also, we do not need to take ->mmap_sem in advance. In fact I think
mm_for_maps() should not play with ->mmap_sem at all, the caller should
take this lock.

With or without this patch, without ->cred_guard_mutex held we can race
with exec() and get the new ->mm but check old creds.

9 years agoperf tools: callchain: Fix bad rounding of minimum rate
Frederic Weisbecker [Sun, 9 Aug 2009 02:19:15 +0000]
perf tools: callchain: Fix bad rounding of minimum rate

Sometimes we get callchain branches that have a rate under the
limit given by the user.

Say you launched:

 perf record -f -g -a ./hackbench 10
 perf report -g fractal,10.0

And you got:

2.33%       hackbench  [kernel]                  [k] _spin_lock_irqsave
                |
                |--78.57%-- remove_wait_queue
                |          poll_freewait
                |          do_sys_poll
                |          sys_poll
                |          sysenter_dispatch
                |          0xf7ffa430
                |          0x1ffadea3c
                |
                |--7.14%-- __up_read
                |          up_read
                |          do_page_fault
                |          page_fault
                |          0xf7ffa430
                |          0xa0df710000000a
                ...

It is abnormal to get a 7.14% branch whereas we passed a 10%
filter.

The problem is that we round down the minimum threshold. This
happens mostly when we have very low number of events. If the
total amount of your branch is 4 and you have a subranch of 3
events, filtering to 90% will be computed like follows:

  limit = 4 * 0.9;

The result is about 3.6, but the cast to integer will round
down to 3. It means that our filter is actually of 75%

We must then explicitly round up the minimum threshold.

perf tools: callchain: Fix sum of percentages to be 100% by displaying amount of ignored chains in fractal mode

When we filter the callchains below a given percentage, we
ignore them and the end result only shows entries that have an
upper percentage than the filter threshold.

It seems to users then that we have an imbalance in the
percentage, as if the sum inside a profiled branch doesn't
reach 100%.

Since in the past there have been real perf report bugs that
showed the same sypmtom, it would be nice to assure the user
that the data is perfect and trustable and it all sums up to
100.00%.

So fix this by displaying the remaining hits that have been
filtered but without more detail than their amount in each
branches. Example while filtering below 50%:

7.73%  [k] delay_tsc

perf tools: callchain: Fix spurious 'perf report' warnings: ignore empty callchains

When the callchain tree comes to insert an empty backtrace, it
raises a spurious warning about the fact we are inserting an
empty. This is spurious because the radix tree assumes it did
something wrong to reach this state. But it didn't, we just met
an empty callchain that has to be ignored.

This happens occasionally with certain types of call-chain
recordings. If it happens it's a big nuisance as perf report
output starts with thousands of warning lines.

perf record: Fix the -A UI for empty or non-existent perf.data

1. Ignore the -A argument if there is no perf.data file
2. Treat an empty file like a non existent file.

Else, perf will try to read the perf.data header, and fail with
an error.

Treating an empty file like a non-existent file makes sense,
since an interupted (as in SIGKILLed) perf could leave such
files around, and you don't want to annoy the user with errors

9 years agoperf_counter: Fix/complete ftrace event records sampling
Frederic Weisbecker [Thu, 6 Aug 2009 23:25:54 +0000]
perf_counter: Fix/complete ftrace event records sampling

This patch implements the kernel side support for ftrace event
record sampling.

A new counter sampling attribute is added:

   PERF_SAMPLE_TP_RECORD

which requests ftrace events record sampling. In this case
if a PERF_TYPE_TRACEPOINT counter is active and a tracepoint
fires, we emit the tracepoint binary record to the
perfcounter event buffer, as a sample.

Result, after setting PERF_SAMPLE_TP_RECORD attribute from perf
record:

 perf record -f -F 1 -a -e workqueue:workqueue_execution
 perf report -D

 0x21e18 [0x48]: event: 9
 .
 . ... raw event: size 72 bytes

 .  0040:  e0 b1 31 81 ff ff ff ff                          .......
.
0x21e18 [0x48]: PERF_EVENT_SAMPLE (IP, 1): 10: 0xffffffff8100c7d0 period: 33

The raw ftrace binary record starts at offset 0020.

Translation:

 struct trace_entry {
type = 0x2b = 43;
flags = 1;
preempt_count = 2;
pid = 0xa = 10;
tgid = 0xa = 10;
 }

 thread_comm = "events/1"
 thread_pid  = 0xa = 10;
 func     = 0xffffffff8131b1e0 = flush_to_ldisc()

What will come next?

 - Userspace support ('perf trace'), 'flight data recorder' mode
   for perf trace, etc.

 - The unconditional copy from the profiling callback brings
   some costs however if someone wants no such sampling to
   occur, and needs to be fixed in the future. For that we need
   to have an instant access to the perf counter attribute.
   This is a matter of a flag to add in the struct ftrace_event.

 - Take care of the events recursivity! Don't ever try to record
   a lock event for example, it seems some locking is used in
   the profiling fast path and lead to a tracing recursivity.
   That will be fixed using raw spinlock or recursivity
   protection.

 - [...]

 - Profit! :-)

KVM: Avoid redelivery of edge interrupt before next edge

The check for an edge is broken in current ioapic code. ioapic->irr is
cleared on each edge interrupt by ioapic_service() and this makes
old_irr != ioapic->irr condition in kvm_ioapic_set_irq() to be always
true. The patch fixes the code to properly recognise edge.

Some HW emulation calls set_irq() without level change. If each such
call is propagated to an OS it may confuse a device driver. This is the
case with keyboard device emulation and Windows XP x64  installer on SMP VM.
Each keystroke produce two interrupts (down/up) one interrupt is
submitted to CPU0 and another to CPU1. This confuses Windows somehow
and it ignores keystrokes.

9 years agodrm: When adding probed modes, preserve duplicate mode types
Keith Packard [Mon, 20 Jul 2009 21:49:17 +0000]
drm: When adding probed modes, preserve duplicate mode types

The code which takes probed modes and adds them to a connector eliminates
duplicate modes by comparing them using drm_mode_equal. That function
doesn't consider the type bits, which means that any modes which differ only
in the type field will be lost.

One of the bits in the mode->type field is the DRM_MODE_TYPE_PREFERRED bit.
If the mode with that bit is lost, then higher level code will not know
which mode to select, causing a random mode to be used instead.

This patch simply merges the two mode type bits together; that seems
reasonable to me, but perhaps only a subset of the bits should be used? None
of these can be user defined as they all come from looking at just the
hardware.

USB: EHCI: fix two new bugs related to Clear-TT-Buffer

This patch (as1273) fixes two(!) bugs introduced by the new
Clear-TT-Buffer implementation in ehci-hcd.

It is now possible for an idle QH to have some URBs on its
queue -- this will happen if a Clear-TT-Buffer is pending for
the QH's endpoint.  Consequently we should not issue a warning
when someone tries to unlink an URB from an idle QH; instead
we should process the request immediately.

The refcounts for QHs could get messed up, because
submit_async() would increment the refcount when calling
qh_link_async() and qh_link_async() would then refuse to link
the QH into the schedule if a Clear-TT-Buffer was pending.
Instead we should increment the refcount only when the QH
actually is added to the schedule.  The current code tries to
be clever by leaving the refcount alone if an unlink is
immediately followed by a relink; the patch changes this to an
unconditional decrement and increment (although they occur in
the opposite order).

lib/decompress_*: only include <linux/slab.h> if STATIC is not defined

These includes were added by 079effb6933f34b9b1b67b08bd4fd7fb672d16ef
("kmemtrace, kbuild: fix slab.h dependency problem in
lib/decompress_inflate.c") to fix the build when using kmemtrace.  However
this is not necessary when used to create a compressed kernel, and
actually creates issues (brings a lot of things unavailable in the
decompression environment), so don't include it if STATIC is defined.

9 years agobzip2/lzma: remove nasty uncompressed size hack in pre-boot environment
Phillip Lougher [Thu, 6 Aug 2009 22:09:31 +0000]
bzip2/lzma: remove nasty uncompressed size hack in pre-boot environment

decompress_bunzip2 and decompress_unlzma have a nasty hack that subtracts
4 from the input length if being called in the pre-boot environment.

This is a nasty hack because it relies on the fact that flush = NULL only
when called from the pre-boot environment (i.e.
arch/x86/boot/compressed/misc.c).  initramfs.c/do_mounts_rd.c pass in a
flush buffer (flush != NULL).

This hack prevents the decompressors from being used with flush = NULL by
other callers unless knowledge of the hack is propagated to them.

This patch removes the hack by making decompress (called only from the
pre-boot environment) a wrapper function that subtracts 4 from the input
length before calling the decompressor.
