[PATCH] strndup_user()

This patch series creates a strndup_user() function to easy copying C strings
from userspace.  Also we avoid common pitfalls like userspace modifying the
final \0 after the strlen_user().

[PATCH] timer-irq-driven soft-watchdog, cleanups

Make the softlockup detector purely timer-interrupt driven, removing
softirq-context (timer) dependencies.  This means that if the softlockup
watchdog triggers, it has truly observed a longer than 10 seconds
scheduling delay of a SCHED_FIFO prio 99 task.

(the patch also turns off the softlockup detector during the initial bootup
phase and does small style fixes)

Andrew Morton [Fri, 24 Mar 2006 11:18:35 +0000]
[PATCH] RLIMIT_CPU: fix handling of a zero limit

At present the kernel doesn't honour an attempt to set RLIMIT_CPU to zero
seconds.  But the spec says it should, and that's what 2.4.x does.

Fixing this for real would involve some complexity (such as adding a new
it-has-been-set flag to the task_struct, and testing that everwhere, instead
of overloading the value of it_prof_expires).

Given that a 2.4 kernel won't actually send the signal until one second has
expired anyway, let's just handle this case by treating the caller's
zero-seconds as one second.

Andrew Morton [Fri, 24 Mar 2006 11:18:12 +0000]
[PATCH] msync(): perform dirty page levelling

It seems sensible to perform dirty page throttling in msync: as the application
dirties pages we can kick off pdflush early, or even force the msync() caller
to perform writeout, or even throttle the msync() caller.

The main effect of this is to start disk writeback earlier if we've just
discovered that a large amount of pagecache has been dirtied.  (Otherwise it
wouldn't happen for up to five seconds, next time pdflush wakes up).

It also will cause the page-dirtying process to get panalised for dirtying
those pages rather than whacking someone else with the problem.

We should do this for munmap() and possibly even exit(), too.

We drop the mmap_sem while performing the dirty page balancing.  It doesn't
seem right to hold mmap_sem for that long.

Note that this patch only affects MS_ASYNC.  MS_SYNC will be syncing all the
dirty pages anyway.

We note that msync(MS_SYNC) does a full-file-sync inside mmap_sem, and always
has.  We can fix that up...

The patch also tightens up the mmap_sem coverage in sys_msync(): no point in
taking it while we perform the incoming arg checking.

[PATCH] HOTPLUG_CPU: avoid hitting too many cachelines in recalc_bh_state()

Instead of using for_each_cpu(i), we can use for_each_online_cpu(i).

When a CPU goes offline (ie removed from online map), it might have a non
null bh_accounting.nr, so this patch adds a transfer of this counter to an
online CPU counter.

We already have a hotcpu_notifier, (function buffer_cpu_notify()), where we
can do this bh_accounting.

[PATCH] shmdt: check address alignment

SUSv3 says the shmdt() function shall fail with EINVAL if the value of
shmaddr is not the data segment start address of a shared memory segment:
our sys_shmdt needs to reject a shmaddr which is not page-aligned.

Does it have the potential to break existing apps?

Hugh says

  "sys_shmdt() just does the wrong (unexpected) thing with a misaligned
  address: it'll fail on what you might expect it to succeed on, and only
  succeed on what it should definitely fail on.

  "That is, I think it behaves as if shmaddr gets rounded up, when the only
  understandable behaviour would be if it rounded it down.

  "Which does mean you'd have to be devious to see anything but EINVAL from
  a misaligned shmaddr there, so it's not terribly important."

13 years ago[PATCH] fadvise(): write commands
Andrew Morton [Fri, 24 Mar 2006 11:18:04 +0000]
[PATCH] fadvise(): write commands

Add two new linux-specific fadvise extensions():

LINUX_FADV_ASYNC_WRITE: start async writeout of any dirty pages between file
offsets `offset' and `offset+len'.  Any pages which are currently under
writeout are skipped, whether or not they are dirty.

LINUX_FADV_WRITE_WAIT: wait upon writeout of any dirty pages between file
offsets `offset' and `offset+len'.

By combining these two operations the application may do several things:

LINUX_FADV_ASYNC_WRITE: push some or all of the dirty pages at the disk.

LINUX_FADV_WRITE_WAIT, LINUX_FADV_ASYNC_WRITE: push all of the currently dirty
pages at the disk.

LINUX_FADV_WRITE_WAIT, LINUX_FADV_ASYNC_WRITE, LINUX_FADV_WRITE_WAIT: push all
of the currently dirty pages at the disk, wait until they have been written.

It should be noted that none of these operations write out the file's
metadata.  So unless the application is strictly performing overwrites of
already-instantiated disk blocks, there are no guarantees here that the data
will be available after a crash.

To complete this suite of operations I guess we should have a "sync file
metadata only" operation.  This gives applications access to all the building
blocks needed for all sorts of sync operations.  But sync-metadata doesn't fit
well with the fadvise() interface.  Probably it should be a new syscall:
sys_fmetadatasync().

The patch also diddles with the meaning of `endbyte' in sys_fadvise64_64().
It is made to represent that last affected byte in the file (ie: it is
inclusive).  Generally, all these byterange and pagerange functions are
inclusive so we can easily represent EOF with -1.

As Ulrich notes, these two functions are somewhat abusive of the fadvise()
concept, which appears to be "set the future policy for this fd".

But these commands are a perfect fit with the fadvise() impementation, and
several of the existing fadvise() commands are synchronous and don't affect
future policy either.   I think we can live with the slight incongruity.

[PATCH] cpuset memory spread slab cache optimizations

The hooks in the slab cache allocator code path for support of NUMA
mempolicies and cpuset memory spreading are in an important code path.  Many
systems will use neither feature.

This patch optimizes those hooks down to a single check of some bits in the
current tasks task_struct flags.  For non NUMA systems, this hook and related
code is already ifdef'd out.

The optimization is done by using another task flag, set if the task is using
a non-default NUMA mempolicy.  Taking this flag bit along with the
PF_SPREAD_PAGE and PF_SPREAD_SLAB flag bits added earlier in this 'cpuset
memory spreading' patch set, one can check for the combination of any of these
special case memory placement mechanisms with a single test of the current
tasks task_struct flags.

This patch also tightens up the code, to save a few bytes of kernel text
space, and moves some of it out of line.  Due to the nested inlines called
from multiple places, we were ending up with three copies of this code, which
once we get off the main code path (for local node allocation) seems a bit
wasteful of instruction memory.

Paul Jackson [Fri, 24 Mar 2006 11:16:07 +0000]
[PATCH] cpuset memory spread slab cache implementation

Provide the slab cache infrastructure to support cpuset memory spreading.

See the previous patches, cpuset_mem_spread, for an explanation of cpuset
memory spreading.

This patch provides a slab cache SLAB_MEM_SPREAD flag.  If set in the
kmem_cache_create() call defining a slab cache, then any task marked with the
process state flag PF_MEMSPREAD will spread memory page allocations for that
cache over all the allowed nodes, instead of preferring the local (faulting)
node.

On systems not configured with CONFIG_NUMA, this results in no change to the
page allocation code path for slab caches.

On systems with cpusets configured in the kernel, but the "memory_spread"
cpuset option not enabled for the current tasks cpuset, this adds a call to a
cpuset routine and failed bit test of the processor state flag PF_SPREAD_SLAB.

For tasks so marked, a second inline test is done for the slab cache flag
SLAB_MEM_SPREAD, and if that is set and if the allocation is not
in_interrupt(), this adds a call to to a cpuset routine that computes which of
the tasks mems_allowed nodes should be preferred for this allocation.

==> This patch adds another hook into the performance critical
    code path to allocating objects from the slab cache, in the
    ____cache_alloc() chunk, below.  The next patch optimizes this
    hook, reducing the impact of the combined mempolicy plus memory
    spreading hooks on this critical code path to a single check
    against the tasks task_struct flags word.

This patch provides the generic slab flags and logic needed to apply memory
spreading to a particular slab.

A subsequent patch will mark a few specific slab caches for this placement
policy.

    net/socket.c                       sock_inode_cache
    net/sunrpc/rpc_pipe.c              rpc_inode_cache

The choice of which slab caches to so mark was quite simple.  I marked
those already marked SLAB_RECLAIM_ACCOUNT, except for fs/xfs, dentry_cache,
inode_cache, and buffer_head, which were marked in a previous patch.  Even
though SLAB_RECLAIM_ACCOUNT is for a different purpose, it marks the same
potentially large file system i/o related slab caches as we need for memory
spreading.

Given that the rule now becomes "wherever you would have used a
SLAB_RECLAIM_ACCOUNT slab cache flag before (usually the inode cache), use
the SLAB_MEM_SPREAD flag too", this should be easy enough to maintain.
Future file system writers will just copy one of the existing file system
slab cache setups and tend to get it right without thinking.

Paul Jackson [Fri, 24 Mar 2006 11:16:04 +0000]
[PATCH] cpuset memory spread page cache implementation and hooks

Change the page cache allocation calls to support cpuset memory spreading.

See the previous patch, cpuset_mem_spread, for an explanation of cpuset memory
spreading.

On systems without cpusets configured in the kernel, this is no change.

On systems with cpusets configured in the kernel, but the "memory_spread"
cpuset option not enabled for the current tasks cpuset, this adds a call to a
cpuset routine and failed bit test of the processor state flag PF_SPREAD_PAGE.

On tasks in cpusets with "memory_spread" enabled, this adds a call to a cpuset
routine that computes which of the tasks mems_allowed nodes should be
preferred for this allocation.

If memory spreading applies to a particular allocation, then any other NUMA
mempolicy does not apply.

13 years ago[PATCH] cpuset memory spread basic implementation
Paul Jackson [Fri, 24 Mar 2006 11:16:03 +0000]
[PATCH] cpuset memory spread basic implementation

This patch provides the implementation and cpuset interface for an alternative
memory allocation policy that can be applied to certain kinds of memory
allocations, such as the page cache (file system buffers) and some slab caches
(such as inode caches).

The policy is called "memory spreading." If enabled, it spreads out these
kinds of memory allocations over all the nodes allowed to a task, instead of
preferring to place them on the node where the task is executing.

All other kinds of allocations, including anonymous pages for a tasks stack
and data regions, are not affected by this policy choice, and continue to be
allocated preferring the node local to execution, as modified by the NUMA
mempolicy.

There are two boolean flag files per cpuset that control where the kernel
allocates pages for the file system buffers and related in kernel data
structures.  They are called 'memory_spread_page' and 'memory_spread_slab'.

If the per-cpuset boolean flag file 'memory_spread_page' is set, then the
kernel will spread the file system buffers (page cache) evenly over all the
nodes that the faulting task is allowed to use, instead of preferring to put
those pages on the node where the task is running.

If the per-cpuset boolean flag file 'memory_spread_slab' is set, then the
kernel will spread some file system related slab caches, such as for inodes
and dentries evenly over all the nodes that the faulting task is allowed to
use, instead of preferring to put those pages on the node where the task is
running.

The implementation is simple.  Setting the cpuset flags 'memory_spread_page'
or 'memory_spread_cache' turns on the per-process flags PF_SPREAD_PAGE or
PF_SPREAD_SLAB, respectively, for each task that is in the cpuset or
subsequently joins that cpuset.  In subsequent patches, the page allocation
calls for the affected page cache and slab caches are modified to perform an
inline check for these flags, and if set, a call to a new routine
cpuset_mem_spread_node() returns the node to prefer for the allocation.

The cpuset_mem_spread_node() routine is also simple.  It uses the value of a
per-task rotor cpuset_mem_spread_rotor to select the next node in the current
tasks mems_allowed to prefer for the allocation.

This policy can provide substantial improvements for jobs that need to place
thread local data on the corresponding node, but that need to access large
file system data sets that need to be spread across the several nodes in the
jobs cpuset in order to fit.  Without this patch, especially for jobs that
might have one thread reading in the data set, the memory allocation across
the nodes in the jobs cpuset can become very uneven.

A couple of Copyright year ranges are updated as well.  And a couple of email
addresses that can be found in the MAINTAINERS file are removed.

[PATCH] tvec_bases too large for per-cpu data

With internal Xen-enabled kernels we see the kernel's static per-cpu data
area exceed the limit of 32k on x86-64, and even native x86-64 kernels get
fairly close to that limit.  I generally question whether it is reasonable
to have data structures several kb in size allocated as per-cpu data when
the space there is rather limited.

The biggest arch-independent consumer is tvec_bases (over 4k on 32-bit
archs, over 8k on 64-bit ones), which now gets converted to use dynamically
allocated memory instead.

Paul Jackson [Fri, 24 Mar 2006 11:15:44 +0000]
[PATCH] bitmap: region cleanup

Paul Mundt <lethal@linux-sh.org> says:

This patch set implements a number of patches to clean up and restructure the
bitmap region code, in addition to extending the interface to support
multiword spanning allocations.

The current implementation (before this patch set) is limited by only being
able to allocate pages <= BITS_PER_LONG, as noted by the strategically
positioned BUG_ON() at lib/bitmap.c:752:

        /* We don't do regions of pages > BITS_PER_LONG.  The
 * algorithm would be a simple look for multiple zeros in the
 * array, but there's no driver today that needs this.  If you
 * trip this BUG(), you get to code it... */
        BUG_ON(pages > BITS_PER_LONG);

As I seem to have been the first person to trigger this, the result ends up
being the following patch set with the help of Paul Jackson.

The final patch in the series eliminates quite a bit of code duplication, so
the bitmap code size ends up being smaller than the current implementation as
an added bonus.

After these are applied, it should already be possible to do multiword
allocations with dma_alloc_coherent() out of ranges established by
dma_declare_coherent_memory() on x86 without having to change any of the code,
and the SH store queue API will follow up on this as the other user that needs
support for this.

This patch:

Some code cleanup on the lib/bitmap.c bitmap_*_region() routines:

 * spacing
 * variable names
 * comments

Has no change to code function.

[PATCH] s390: fix endless retry loop in tape driver

If a tape device is assigned to another host, the interrupt for the assign
operation comes back with deferred condition code 1.  Under some conditions
this can lead to an endless loop of retries.  Check if the current request is
still in IO in deferred condition code handling and prevent retries when the
request has already been cancelled.

Michael Holzheu [Fri, 24 Mar 2006 11:15:27 +0000]
[PATCH] s390: tape operation abortion leads to panic

When a request is aborted because of a signal, we currently stop the request
via csh, but we do not wait for the interrupt of csh in any case.  We free the
request structure and therefore when the interrupt for the csh operation is
presented, the request object is no longer valid and an invalid callback
pointer is used.

To fix this wait until the interrupt for csh arrives and until
wait_event_interruptible() does not return -ERESTARTSYS.

If a deferred CC happens there will be lots of messages, because the retry is
done immediatly in the interrupt handler which can be too fast.  To avoid this
requeue the request and schedule the queue to be processed.
