12 years ago[S390] dynamic page tables.

[S390] dynamic page tables.

Add support for different number of page table levels dependent
on the highest address used for a process. This will cause a 31 bit
process to use a two level page table instead of the four level page
table that is the default after the pud has been introduced. Likewise
a normal 64 bit process will use three levels instead of four. Only
if a process runs out of the 4 tera bytes which can be addressed with
a three level page table the fourth level is dynamically added. Then
the process can use up to 8 peta byte.

Christian Borntraeger [Sat, 9 Feb 2008 17:24:33 +0000]
[S390] sclp_vt220: Fix vt220 initialization

There are two problems in the vt220 intialization:

o Currently the vt220 console looses early printk events until the
  the vt220 tty is registered.
o console should work if tty_register fails

sclp_vt220_con_init calls __sclp_vt220_init and register_console.
It does not register the driver with the sclp core code via
sclp_register. That results in an sclp_send_mask=0. Therefore,
__sclp_vt220_emit will reject buffers with EIO. Unfortunately
register_console will cause the printk buffer to be sent to the
console and, therefore, every early message gets dropped. The
sclp_send_mask is set later during boot, when sclp_vt220_tty_init
calls sclp_register.

The solution is to move the sclp_register call from sclp_vt220_tty_init
to __sclp_vt220_init. This makes sure that the console is properly
registered with the sclp subsystem before the first log buffer messages
are passed to the vt220 console.

We also adopt the cleanup on error to keep the console alive if
tty_register fails.

Thanks to Peter Oberparleiter and Heiko Carstens for review and ideas
for improvement.

Documentation - Create laptops sub-directory

There are currently various laptop drivers floating about with no central
place for their documentation, which is currently scattered around the top
level Documentation/ directory.

So, as a first step, lets create a Documentation sub-directory, and update

cpuidle: build fix for non-x86

The last posted version of this patch gave compile error
on IA64. So, here goes yet another rewrite of the patch.

Convert cpu_idle_wait() to cpuidle_kick_cpus() which is
SMP-only, and gives error on non supported CPU.

Changes from last patch sent by Kevin:
Moved the definition of kick_cpus back to cpuidle.c from cpuidle.h:
* Having it in .h gives #error on archs which includes the header file without
  actually having CPU_IDLE configured. To make it work in .h, we need one more
  #ifdef around that code which makes it messy.
* Also, the function is only called from one file. So, it can be in declared
  statically in .c rather than making it available to everyone who includes
  the .h file.

mm: special mapping nopage

Convert special mapping install from nopage to fault.

Because the "vm_file" is NULL for the special mapping, the generic VM
code has messed up "vm_pgoff" thinking that it's an anonymous mapping
and the offset does't matter.  For that reason, we need to undo the
vm_pgoff offset that got added into vmf->pgoff.

[ We _really_ should clean that up - either by making this whole special
  mapping code just use a real file entry rather than that ugly array of
  "struct page" pointers, or by just making the VM code realize that
  even if vm_file is NULL it may not be a regular anonymous mmap.

Fix FRV cmpxchg_local

Fix the FRV cmpxchg_local by breaking the following header dependency loop :

linux/kernel.h -> linux/bitops.h -> asm-frv/bitops.h -> asm-frv/atomic.h
  -> asm-frv/system.h ->
  asm-generic/cmpxchg_local.h -> typecheck() defined in linux/kernel.h

and

linux/kernel.h -> linux/bitops.h -> asm-frv/bitops.h -> asm-frv/atomic.h ->
  asm-generic/cmpxchg_local.h -> typecheck() defined in linux/kernel.h

In order to fix this :
- Move the atomic_test_and_ *_mask inlines from asm-frv/atomic.h (why are they
  there at all anyway ? They are not touching atomic_t variables!) to
  asm-frv/bitops.h.

Also fix a build issue with cmpxchg : it does not cast to (unsigned long *)
like other architectures, to deal with it in the cmpxchg_local macro.

FRV builds fine with this patch.

Jack Morgenstein [Mon, 28 Jan 2008 08:40:59 +0000]
IB/mlx4: Use multiple WQ blocks to post smaller send WQEs

ConnectX HCA supports shrinking WQEs, so that a single work request
can be made of multiple units of wqe_shift.  This way, WRs can differ
in size, and do not have to be a power of 2 in size, saving memory and
speeding up send WR posting.  Unfortunately, if we do this then the
wqe_index field in CQEs can't be used to look up the WR ID anymore, so
our implementation does this only if selective signaling is off.

Further, on 32-bit platforms, we can't use vmap() to make the QP
buffer virtually contigious. Thus we have to use constant-sized WRs to
make sure a WR is always fully within a single page-sized chunk.

Finally, we use WRs with the NOP opcode to avoid wrapping around the
queue buffer in the middle of posting a WR, and we set the
NoErrorCompletion bit to avoid getting completions with error for NOP
WRs.  However, NEC is only supported starting with firmware 2.2.232,
so we use constant-sized WRs for older firmware.  And, since MLX QPs
only support SEND, we use constant-sized WRs in this case.

When stamping during NOP posting, do stamping following setting of the
NOP WQE valid bit.

[IA64] Synchronize RBS on PTRACE_ATTACH

When attaching to a stopped process, the RSE must be explicitly
synced to user-space, so the debugger can read the correct values.

12 years ago[IA64] Synchronize kernel RSE to user-space and back
Petr Tesarik [Wed, 12 Dec 2007 14:23:34 +0000]
[IA64] Synchronize kernel RSE to user-space and back

This is base kernel patch for ptrace RSE bug. It's basically a backport
from the utrace RSE patch I sent out several weeks ago. please review.

when a thread is stopped (ptraced), debugger might change thread's user
stack (change memory directly), and we must avoid the RSE stored in
kernel to override user stack (user space's RSE is newer than kernel's
in the case). To workaround the issue, we copy kernel RSE to user RSE
before the task is stopped, so user RSE has updated data.  we then copy
user RSE to kernel after the task is resummed from traced stop and
kernel will use the newer RSE to return to user.

12 years agoext3 can fail badly when device stops accepting BIO_RW_BARRIER requests
Neil Brown [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 12:22:13 +0000]
ext3 can fail badly when device stops accepting BIO_RW_BARRIER requests

Some devices - notably dm and md - can change their behaviour in response
to BIO_RW_BARRIER requests.  They might start out accepting such requests
but on reconfiguration, they find out that they cannot any more.

ext3 (and other filesystems) deal with this by always testing if
BIO_RW_BARRIER requests fail with EOPNOTSUPP, and retrying the write
requests without the barrier (probably after waiting for any pending writes
to complete).

However there is a bug in the handling for this for ext3.

When ext3 (jbd actually) decides to submit a BIO_RW_BARRIER request, it
sets the buffer_ordered flag on the buffer head.  If the request completes
successfully, the flag STAYS SET.

Other code might then write the same buffer_head after the device has been
reconfigured to not accept barriers.  This write will then fail, but the
"other code" is not ready to handle EOPNOTSUPP errors and the error will be
treated as fatal.

This can be seen without having to reconfigure a device at exactly the
wrong time by putting:

if (buffer_ordered(bh))
printk("OH DEAR, and ordered buffer\n");

in the while loop in "commit phase 5" of journal_commit_transaction.

If it ever prints the "OH DEAR ..." message (as it does sometimes for
me), then that request could (in different circumstances) have failed
with EOPNOTSUPP, but that isn't tested for.

My proposed fix is to clear the buffer_ordered flag after it has been
used, as in the following patch.

12 years agoreduce large do_mount stack usage with noinlines
Eric Sandeen [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 12:22:12 +0000]
reduce large do_mount stack usage with noinlines

do_mount() uses a whopping 616 bytes of stack on x86_64 in 2.6.24-mm1,
largely thanks to gcc inlining the various helper functions.

noinlining these can slim it down a lot; on my box this patch gets it down
to 168, which is mostly the struct nameidata nd; left on the stack.

These functions are called only as do_mount() helpers; none of them should
be in any path that would see a performance benefit from inlining...

12 years agouml: runtime host VMSPLIT detection
Jeff Dike [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 12:22:07 +0000]
uml: runtime host VMSPLIT detection

Calculate TASK_SIZE at run-time by figuring out the host's VMSPLIT - this is
needed on i386 if UML is to run on hosts with varying VMSPLITs without
recompilation.

TASK_SIZE is now defined in terms of a variable, task_size.  This gets rid of
an include of pgtable.h from processor.h, which can cause include loops.

On i386, task_size is calculated early in boot by probing the address space in
a binary search to figure out where the boundary between usable and non-usable
memory is.  This tries to make sure that a page that is considered to be in
userspace is, or can be made, read-write.  I'm concerned about a system-global
VDSO page in kernel memory being hit and considered to be a userspace page.

On x86_64, task_size is just the old value of CONFIG_TOP_ADDR.

A bunch of config variable are gone now.  CONFIG_TOP_ADDR is directly replaced
by TASK_SIZE.  NEST_LEVEL is gone since the relocation of the stubs makes it
irrelevant.  All the HOST_VMSPLIT stuff is gone.  All references to these in
arch/um/Makefile are also gone.

I noticed and fixed a missing extern in os.h when adding os_get_task_size.

Note: This has been revised to fix the 32-bit UML on 64-bit host bug that
Miklos ran into.

12 years agoCONFIG_HIGHPTE vs. sub-page page tables.
Martin Schwidefsky [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 12:22:04 +0000]
CONFIG_HIGHPTE vs. sub-page page tables.

Background: I've implemented 1K/2K page tables for s390.  These sub-page
page tables are required to properly support the s390 virtualization
instruction with KVM.  The SIE instruction requires that the page tables
have 256 page table entries (pte) followed by 256 page status table entries
(pgste).  The pgstes are only required if the process is using the SIE
instruction.  The pgstes are updated by the hardware and by the hypervisor
for a number of reasons, one of them is dirty and reference bit tracking.
To avoid wasting memory the standard pte table allocation should return
1K/2K (31/64 bit) and 2K/4K if the process is using SIE.

Problem: Page size on s390 is 4K, page table size is 1K or 2K.  That means
the s390 version for pte_alloc_one cannot return a pointer to a struct
page.  Trouble is that with the CONFIG_HIGHPTE feature on x86 pte_alloc_one
cannot return a pointer to a pte either, since that would require more than
32 bit for the return value of pte_alloc_one (and the pte * would not be
accessible since its not kmapped).

Solution: The only solution I found to this dilemma is a new typedef: a
pgtable_t.  For s390 pgtable_t will be a (pte *) - to be introduced with a
later patch.  For everybody else it will be a (struct page *).  The
additional problem with the initialization of the ptl lock and the
NR_PAGETABLE accounting is solved with a constructor pgtable_page_ctor and
a destructor pgtable_page_dtor.  The page table allocation and free
functions need to call these two whenever a page table page is allocated or
freed.  pmd_populate will get a pgtable_t instead of a struct page pointer.
 To get the pgtable_t back from a pmd entry that has been installed with
pmd_populate a new function pmd_pgtable is added.  It replaces the pmd_page
call in free_pte_range and apply_to_pte_range.

12 years agoIRQ_NOPROBE helper functions
Ralf Baechle [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 12:22:01 +0000]
IRQ_NOPROBE helper functions

Probing non-ISA interrupts using the handle_percpu_irq as their handle_irq
method may crash the system because handle_percpu_irq does not check
IRQ_WAITING.  This for example hits the MIPS Qemu configuration.

This patch provides two helper functions set_irq_noprobe and set_irq_probe to
set rsp.  clear the IRQ_NOPROBE flag.  The only current caller is MIPS code
but this really belongs into generic code.

As an aside, interrupt probing these days has become a mostly obsolete if not
dangerous art.  I think Linux interrupts should be changed to default to
non-probing but that's subject of this patch.

12 years agobuffer_head: fix private_list handling
Jan Kara [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 12:21:59 +0000]
buffer_head: fix private_list handling

There are two possible races in handling of private_list in buffer cache.

1) When fsync_buffers_list() processes a private_list, it clears
   b_assoc_mapping and moves buffer to its private list.  Now
   drop_buffers() comes, sees a buffer is on list so it calls
   __remove_assoc_queue() which complains about b_assoc_mapping being
   cleared (as it cannot propagate possible IO error).  This race has been
   actually observed in the wild.

2) When fsync_buffers_list() processes a private_list,
   mark_buffer_dirty_inode() can be called on bh which is already on the
   private list of fsync_buffers_list().  As buffer is on some list (note
   that the check is performed without private_lock), it is not readded to
   the mapping's private_list and after fsync_buffers_list() finishes, we
   have a dirty buffer which should be on private_list but it isn't.  This
   race has not been reported, probably because most (but not all) callers
   of mark_buffer_dirty_inode() hold i_mutex and thus are serialized with
   fsync().

Fix these issues by not clearing b_assoc_map when fsync_buffers_list()
moves buffer to a dedicated list and by reinserting buffer in private_list
when it is found dirty after we have submitted buffer for IO.  We also
change the tests whether a buffer is on a private list from
!list_empty(&bh->b_assoc_buffers) to bh->b_assoc_map so that they are
single word reads and hence lockless checks are safe.

12 years agoAdd new string functions strict_strto* and convert kernel params to use them
Yi Yang [Fri, 8 Feb 2008 12:21:57 +0000]
Add new string functions strict_strto* and convert kernel params to use them

Currently, for every sysfs node, the callers will be responsible for
implementing store operation, so many many callers are doing duplicate
things to validate input, they have the same mistakes because they are
calling simple_strtol/ul/ll/uul, especially for module params, they are
just numeric, but you can echo such values as 0x1234xxx, 07777888 and
1234aaa, for these cases, module params store operation just ignores
succesive invalid char and converts prefix part to a numeric although input
is acctually invalid.

This patch tries to fix the aforementioned issues and implements
strict_strtox serial functions, kernel/params.c uses them to strictly
validate input, so module params will reject such values as 0x1234xxxx and
returns an error:

write error: Invalid argument

Any modules which export numeric sysfs node can use strict_strtox instead of
simple_strtox to reject any invalid input.

Here are some test results:
