9 years agoperf: Drop the obsolete profile naming for trace events

perf: Drop the obsolete profile naming for trace events

Drop the obsolete "profile" naming used by perf for trace events.
Perf can now do more than simple events counting, so generalize
the API naming.

9 years agoperf: Take a hot regs snapshot for trace events
Frederic Weisbecker [Wed, 3 Mar 2010 06:16:16 +0000]
perf: Take a hot regs snapshot for trace events

We are taking a wrong regs snapshot when a trace event triggers.
Either we use get_irq_regs(), which gives us the interrupted
registers if we are in an interrupt, or we use task_pt_regs()
which gives us the state before we entered the kernel, assuming
we are lucky enough to be no kernel thread, in which case
task_pt_regs() returns the initial set of regs when the kernel
thread was started.

What we want is different. We need a hot snapshot of the regs,
so that we can get the instruction pointer to record in the
sample, the frame pointer for the callchain, and some other
things.

Let's use the new perf_fetch_caller_regs() for that.

Comparison with perf record -e lock: -R -a -f -g
Before:

        perf  [kernel]                   [k] __do_softirq
               |
               --- __do_softirq
                  |
                  |--55.16%-- __open
                  |
                   --44.84%-- __write_nocancel

After:

            perf  [kernel]           [k] perf_tp_event
               |
               --- perf_tp_event
                  |
                  |--41.07%-- lock_acquire
                  |          |
                  |          |--39.36%-- _raw_spin_lock
                  |          |          |
                  |          |          |--7.81%-- hrtimer_interrupt
                  |          |          |          smp_apic_timer_interrupt
                  |          |          |          apic_timer_interrupt

The old case was producing unreliable callchains. Now having
right frame and instruction pointers, we have the trace we
want.

Also syscalls and kprobe events already have the right regs,
let's use them instead of wasting a retrieval.

v2: Follow the rename perf_save_regs() -> perf_fetch_caller_regs()

9 years agoperf: Introduce new perf_fetch_caller_regs() for hot regs snapshot
Frederic Weisbecker [Thu, 4 Mar 2010 20:15:56 +0000]
perf: Introduce new perf_fetch_caller_regs() for hot regs snapshot

Events that trigger overflows by interrupting a context can
use get_irq_regs() or task_pt_regs() to retrieve the state
when the event triggered. But this is not the case for some
other class of events like trace events as tracepoints are
executed in the same context than the code that triggered
the event.

It means we need a different api to capture the regs there,
namely we need a hot snapshot to get the most important
informations for perf: the instruction pointer to get the
event origin, the frame pointer for the callchain, the code
segment for user_mode() tests (we always use __KERNEL_CS as
trace events always occur from the kernel) and the eflags
for further purposes.

v2: rename perf_save_regs to perf_fetch_caller_regs as per
Masami's suggestion.

9 years agolockdep: Move lock events under lockdep recursion protection
Frederic Weisbecker [Tue, 2 Feb 2010 22:34:40 +0000]
lockdep: Move lock events under lockdep recursion protection

There are rcu locked read side areas in the path where we submit
a trace event. And these rcu_read_(un)lock() trigger lock events,
which create recursive events.

One pair in do_perf_sw_event:

__lock_acquire
      |
      |--96.11%-- lock_acquire
      |          |
      |          |--27.21%-- do_perf_sw_event
      |          |          perf_tp_event
      |          |          |
      |          |          |--49.62%-- ftrace_profile_lock_release
      |          |          |          lock_release
      |          |          |          |
      |          |          |          |--33.85%-- _raw_spin_unlock

Another pair in perf_output_begin/end:

__lock_acquire
      |--23.40%-- perf_output_begin
      |          |          __perf_event_overflow
      |          |          perf_swevent_overflow
      |          |          perf_swevent_add
      |          |          perf_swevent_ctx_event
      |          |          do_perf_sw_event
      |          |          perf_tp_event
      |          |          |
      |          |          |--55.37%-- ftrace_profile_lock_acquire
      |          |          |          lock_acquire
      |          |          |          |
      |          |          |          |--37.31%-- _raw_spin_lock

The problem is not that much the trace recursion itself, as we have a
recursion protection already (though it's always wasteful to recurse).
But the trace events are outside the lockdep recursion protection, then
each lockdep event triggers a lock trace, which will trigger two
other lockdep events. Here the recursive lock trace event won't
be taken because of the trace recursion, so the recursion stops there
but lockdep will still analyse these new events:

To sum up, for each lockdep events we have:

lock_*()
     |
             trace lock_acquire
                  |
                  ----- rcu_read_lock()
                  |          |
                  |          lock_acquire()
                  |          |
                  |          trace_lock_acquire() (stopped)
                  |          |
  |          lockdep analyze
                  |
                  ----- rcu_read_unlock()
                             |
                             lock_release
                             |
                             trace_lock_release() (stopped)
                             |
                             lockdep analyze

And you can repeat the above two times as we have two rcu read side
sections when we submit an event.

This is fixed in this patch by moving the lock trace event under
the lockdep recursion protection.

is happening.

Driver core: create lock/unlock functions for struct device

In the future, we are going to be changing the lock type for struct
device (once we get the lockdep infrastructure properly worked out)  To
make that changeover easier, and to possibly burry the lock in a
different part of struct device, let's create some functions to lock and
unlock a device so that no out-of-core code needs to be changed in the
future.

This patch creates the device_lock/unlock/trylock() functions, and
converts all in-tree users to them.

9 years agosysfs: Serialize updates to the vfs inode
Eric W. Biederman [Sat, 13 Feb 2010 03:22:23 +0000]
sysfs: Serialize updates to the vfs inode

The vfs depends upon filesystem methods to update the
vfs inode.   Sysfs adds to the normal number of places
where the vfs inode is updated by also updatng the
vfs inode in sysfs_refresh_inode.

Typically the inode mutex is used to serialize updates
to the vfs inode, but grabbing the inode mutex in
sysfs_permission and sysfs_getattr causes deadlocks,
because sometimes the vfs calls those operations with
the inode mutex held.  Therefore sysfs  can not use the
inode mutex to serial updates to the vfs inode.

The sysfs_mutex is acquired in all of the routines
where sysfs updates the vfs inode, and with a small
change we can consistently protext sysfs vfs inode
updates with the sysfs_mutex. To protect the sysfs
vfs inode updates with the sysfs_mutex simply requires
extending the scope of sysfs_mutex in sysfs_setattr
over inode_setattr, and over inode_change_ok (so we
have an unchanging inode when we perform the check).

9 years agosysfs: Use one lockdep class per sysfs attribute.
Eric W. Biederman [Thu, 11 Feb 2010 23:21:53 +0000]
sysfs: Use one lockdep class per sysfs attribute.

Acknowledge that the logical sysfs rwsem has one instance per
sysfs attribute with different locking depencencies for different
attributes.

There is a sysfs idiom where writing to one sysfs file causes the
addition or removal of other sysfs files.   Lumping all of the
sysfs attributes together in one lock class causes lockdep to
generate lots of false positives.

This introduces the requirement that non-static sysfs attributes
need to be initialized with sysfs_attr_init or sysfs_bin_attr_init.
Strictly speaking this requirement only exists when lockdep is

if this requirement is not met.

A pointer to omap_hdq_probe is passed to the core via

unbinding and binding a device to the driver via sysfs will result in an

An alternative to this patch is using platform_driver_probe instead of

from the struct platform_driver.

There is no impact on the rest of sysfs by doing this and
in the common case it allows us to pick up exactly where
we left off with no seeking.

Additionally I drop and regrab the sysfs_mutex around

Also drivers can extend the attributes with own data fields
