10 years agotracing, sched: LTTng instrumentation - scheduler
Mathieu Desnoyers [Fri, 18 Jul 2008 16:16:17 +0000]
tracing, sched: LTTng instrumentation - scheduler

Instrument the scheduler activity (sched_switch, migration, wakeups,
wait for a task, signal delivery) and process/thread
creation/destruction (fork, exit, kthread stop). Actually, kthread
creation is not instrumented in this patch because it is architecture
dependent. It allows to connect tracers such as ftrace which detects
scheduling latencies, good/bad scheduler decisions. Tools like LTTng can
export this scheduler information along with instrumentation of the rest
of the kernel activity to perform post-mortem analysis on the scheduler
activity.

About the performance impact of tracepoints (which is comparable to
markers), even without immediate values optimizations, tests done by
Hideo Aoki on ia64 show no regression. His test case was using hackbench
on a kernel where scheduler instrumentation (about 5 events in code
scheduler code) was added. See the "Tracepoints" patch header for
performance result detail.

Changelog :

- Change instrumentation location and parameter to match ftrace
  instrumentation, previously done with kernel markers.

10 years agotracing: Kernel Tracepoints
Mathieu Desnoyers [Fri, 18 Jul 2008 16:16:16 +0000]
tracing: Kernel Tracepoints

Implementation of kernel tracepoints. Inspired from the Linux Kernel
Markers. Allows complete typing verification by declaring both tracing
statement inline functions and probe registration/unregistration static
inline functions within the same macro "DEFINE_TRACE". No format string
is required. See the tracepoint Documentation and Samples patches for
usage examples.

Taken from the documentation patch :

"A tracepoint placed in code provides a hook to call a function (probe)
that you can provide at runtime. A tracepoint can be "on" (a probe is
connected to it) or "off" (no probe is attached). When a tracepoint is
"off" it has no effect, except for adding a tiny time penalty (checking
a condition for a branch) and space penalty (adding a few bytes for the
function call at the end of the instrumented function and adds a data
structure in a separate section).  When a tracepoint is "on", the
function you provide is called each time the tracepoint is executed, in
the execution context of the caller. When the function provided ends its
execution, it returns to the caller (continuing from the tracepoint
site).

You can put tracepoints at important locations in the code. They are
lightweight hooks that can pass an arbitrary number of parameters, which
prototypes are described in a tracepoint declaration placed in a header
file."

Addition and removal of tracepoints is synchronized by RCU using the
scheduler (and preempt_disable) as guarantees to find a quiescent state
(this is really RCU "classic"). The update side uses rcu_barrier_sched()
with call_rcu_sched() and the read/execute side uses
"preempt_disable()/preempt_enable()".

We make sure the previous array containing probes, which has been
scheduled for deletion by the rcu callback, is indeed freed before we
proceed to the next update. It therefore limits the rate of modification
of a single tracepoint to one update per RCU period. The objective here
is to permit fast batch add/removal of probes on _different_
tracepoints.

Changelog :
- Use #name ":" #proto as string to identify the tracepoint in the
  tracepoint table. This will make sure not type mismatch happens due to
  connexion of a probe with the wrong type to a tracepoint declared with
  the same name in a different header.
- Add tracepoint_entry_free_old.
- Change __TO_TRACE to get rid of the 'i' iterator.

Masami Hiramatsu <mhiramat@redhat.com> :
Tested on x86-64.

Performance impact of a tracepoint : same as markers, except that it
adds about 70 bytes of instructions in an unlikely branch of each
instrumented function (the for loop, the stack setup and the function
call). It currently adds a memory read, a test and a conditional branch
at the instrumentation site (in the hot path). Immediate values will
eventually change this into a load immediate, test and branch, which
removes the memory read which will make the i-cache impact smaller
(changing the memory read for a load immediate removes 3-4 bytes per
site on x86_32 (depending on mov prefixes), or 7-8 bytes on x86_64, it
also saves the d-cache hit).

About the performance impact of tracepoints (which is comparable to
markers), even without immediate values optimizations, tests done by
Hideo Aoki on ia64 show no regression. His test case was using hackbench
on a kernel where scheduler instrumentation (about 5 events in code
scheduler code) was added.

Quoting Hideo Aoki about Markers :

I evaluated overhead of kernel marker using linux-2.6-sched-fixes git
tree, which includes several markers for LTTng, using an ia64 server.

While the immediate trace mark feature isn't implemented on ia64, there
is no major performance regression. So, I think that we don't have any
issues to propose merging marker point patches into Linus's tree from
the viewpoint of performance impact.

I prepared two kernels to evaluate. The first one was compiled without
CONFIG_MARKERS. The second one was enabled CONFIG_MARKERS.

I downloaded the original hackbench from the following URL:
http://devresources.linux-foundation.org/craiger/hackbench/src/hackbench.c

I ran hackbench 5 times in each condition and calculated the average and
difference between the kernels.

    The parameter of hackbench: every 50 from 50 to 800
    The number of CPUs of the server: 2, 4, and 8

Below is the results. As you can see, major performance regression
wasn't found in any case. Even if number of processes increases,
differences between marker-enabled kernel and marker- disabled kernel
doesn't increase. Moreover, if number of CPUs increases, the differences
doesn't increase either.

Curiously, marker-enabled kernel is better than marker-disabled kernel
in more than half cases, although I guess it comes from the difference
of memory access pattern.

Right now there are various drivers that try to use tty->count to know when

sysfs race that this isn't entirely safe.

Instead of driver side tricks to work around this introduce a shutdown which
is called when the tty is being destructed. This also means that the shutdown
method is tied into the refcounting.

Use this to rework the console close/sysfs logic.

Remove lots of special case code from the tty core code. The pty code can now
have a shutdown() method that replaces the special case hackery in the tree

10 years agoserial: allow 8250 to be used on sparc
David Miller [Mon, 13 Oct 2008 09:36:31 +0000]
serial: allow 8250 to be used on sparc

This requires three changes:

1) Remove !SPARC restriction in Kconfig.

2) Move Sparc specific serial drivers before 8250, so that serial
   console devices don't change names on us, even if 8250 finds
   devices.

3) Since the Sparc specific serial drivers try to use the
   same major/minor device namespace as 8250, some coordination
   is necessary.  Use the sunserial_*() layer routines to allocate
   minor number space within TTY_MAJOR when CONFIG_SPARC.

   This has no effect on other platforms.

Thanks to Josip Rodin for bringing up this issue and testing
plus debugging various revisions of this patch.

Based on the tty changes in the 2.6.27 kernel, the termios passed to
the *_set_termios functions is always populated the first time.

This means there is no need to privately initialize the settings the

Julia Lawall [Mon, 13 Oct 2008 09:31:49 +0000]
drivers/char/hvc_console.c: adjust call to put_tty_driver

The call to put_tty_driver is out of place and is applied to the wrong
argument.

The function enclosing the patched code calls alloc_tty_driver and stores
the result in drv.  Subsequently, there are two occurrences of error
handling code, one making a goto to put_tty and one making a goto to
stop_thread.  At the point of the first one the assignment hvc_driver = drv
has not yet been executed, and from inspecting the rest of the file it
seems that hvc_driver would be NULL.  Thus the current call to
put_tty_driver is useless, and one applied to drv is needed.  The goto
stop_thread is in the error handling code for a call to
tty_register_driver, but the error cases in tty_register_driver do not free
its argument, so it should be done here.  Thus, I have moved the put_tty
label after the stop_thread label, so that put_tty_driver is called in both
cases.

early_iounmap() in exactly reverse order of early_ioremap().

dumpstack: x86: various small unification steps, fix

After "dumpstack: x86: various small unification steps", the
assembler gives the following compile error. The error is in
dumpstack_64.c.

{standard input}: Assembler messages:
{standard input}:720: Error: Incorrect register `%rbx' used with `l' suffix
{standard input}:1340: Error: Incorrect register `%r12' used with `l' suffix

Indeed the suffix in get_bp() was wrong.

x86: remove additional_cpus

remove remainder of additional_cpus logic. We now just listen to the
disabled_cpus value like we did for years. disabled_cpus is always >=
0 so no need for an extra check.

10 years agox86: remove additional_cpus configurability
Ingo Molnar [Sun, 5 Oct 2008 15:12:36 +0000]
x86: remove additional_cpus configurability

additional_cpus=<x> parameter is dangerous and broken: for example
if we boot additional_cpus=-2 on a stock dual-core system it will
crash the box on bootup.

So reduce the maze of code a bit by removingthe user-configurability
angle.

10 years agox86: improve UP kernel when CPU-hotplug and SMP is enabled
Thomas Gleixner [Sun, 5 Oct 2008 14:52:24 +0000]
x86: improve UP kernel when CPU-hotplug and SMP is enabled

num_possible_cpus() can be > 1 when disabled CPUs have been accounted.

Disabled CPUs are not in the cpu_present_map, so we can use
num_present_cpus() as a safe indicator to switch to UP alternatives.
