[PATCH] paravirt: pte clear not present

Change pte_clear_full to a more appropriately named pte_clear_not_present,
allowing optimizations when not-present mapping changes need not be reflected
in the hardware TLB for protected page table modes.  There is also another
case that can use it in the fremap code.

Andrew Morton [Sun, 1 Oct 2006 06:29:29 +0000]
[PATCH] invalidate_inode_pages2(): ignore page refcounts

The recent fix to invalidate_inode_pages() (git commit 016eb4a) managed to
unfix invalidate_inode_pages2().

The problem is that various bits of code in the kernel can take transient refs
on pages: the page scanner will do this when inspecting a batch of pages, and
the lru_cache_add() batching pagevecs also hold a ref.

Net result is transient failures in invalidate_inode_pages2().  This affects
NFS directory invalidation (observed) and presumably also block-backed
direct-io (not yet reported).

Fix it by reverting invalidate_inode_pages2() back to the old version which
ignores the page refcounts.

We may come up with something more clever later, but for now we need a 2.6.18
fix for NFS.

14 years ago[PATCH] Support piping into commands in /proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern
Andi Kleen [Sun, 1 Oct 2006 06:29:28 +0000]
[PATCH] Support piping into commands in /proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern

Using the infrastructure created in previous patches implement support to
pipe core dumps into programs.

This is done by overloading the existing core_pattern sysctl
with a new syntax:

|program

When the first character of the pattern is a '|' the kernel will instead
threat the rest of the pattern as a command to run.  The core dump will be
written to the standard input of that program instead of to a file.

This is useful for having automatic core dump analysis without filling up
disks.  The program can do some simple analysis and save only a summary of
the core dump.

The core dump proces will run with the privileges and in the name space of
the process that caused the core dump.

I also increased the core pattern size to 128 bytes so that longer command
lines fit.

Most of the changes comes from allowing core dumps without seeks.  They are
fairly straight forward though.

One small incompatibility is that if someone had a core pattern previously
that started with '|' they will get suddenly new behaviour.  I think that's
unlikely to be a real problem though.

Additional background:

> Very nice, do you happen to have a program that can accept this kind of
> input for crash dumps?  I'm guessing that the embedded people will
> really want this functionality.

I had a cheesy demo/prototype.  Basically it wrote the dump to a file again,
ran gdb on it to get a backtrace and wrote the summary to a shared directory.
Then there was a simple CGI script to generate a "top 10" crashes HTML
listing.

Unfortunately this still had the disadvantage to needing full disk space for a
dump except for deleting it afterwards (in fact it was worse because over the
pipe holes didn't work so if you have a holey address map it would require
more space).

Fortunately gdb seems to be happy to handle /proc/pid/fd/xxx input pipes as
cores (at least it worked with zsh's =(cat core) syntax), so it would be
likely possible to do it without temporary space with a simple wrapper that
calls it in the right way.  I ran out of time before doing that though.

The demo prototype scripts weren't very good.  If there is really interest I
can dig them out (they are currently on a laptop disk on the desk with the
laptop itself being in service), but I would recommend to rewrite them for any
serious application of this and fix the disk space problem.

Also to be really useful it should probably find a way to automatically fetch
the debuginfos (I cheated and just installed them in advance).  If nobody else
does it I can probably do the rewrite myself again at some point.

My hope at some point was that desktops would support it in their builtin
crash reporters, but at least the KDE people I talked too seemed to be happy
with their user space only solution.

Alan sayeth:

  I don't believe that piping as such as neccessarily the right model, but
  the ability to intercept and processes core dumps from user space is asked
  for by many enterprise users as well.  They want to know about, capture,
  analyse and process core dumps, often centrally and in automated form.

Haavard Skinnemoen [Sun, 1 Oct 2006 06:29:14 +0000]
[PATCH] Generic ioremap_page_range: flush_cache_vmap

The existing implementation of ioremap_page_range(), which was taken
from i386, does this:

flush_cache_all();
/* modify page tables */
flush_tlb_all();

I think this is a bit defensive, so this patch changes the generic
implementation to do:

/* modify page tables */
flush_cache_vmap(start, end);

instead, which is similar to what vmalloc() does. This should still
be correct because we never modify existing PTEs. According to
James Bottomley:

The problem the flush_tlb_all() is trying to solve is to avoid stale tlb
entries in the ioremap area.  We're just being conservative by flushing
on both map and unmap.  Technically what vmalloc/vfree does (only flush
the tlb on unmap) is just fine because it means that the only tlb
entries in the remap area must belong to in-use mappings.

* Add safe_smp_processor_id function to i386 architecture (this function was
  inspired by the x86_64 function of the same name).

* Substitute "smp_processor_id" with the stack overflow-safe
  "safe_smp_processor_id" in the reboot path to the second kernel.

This patch:

On the event of a stack overflow critical data that usually resides at the
bottom of the stack is likely to be stomped and, consequently, its use should
be avoided.

In particular, in the i386 and IA64 architectures the macro smp_processor_id
ultimately makes use of the "cpu" member of struct thread_info which resides
at the bottom of the stack.  x86_64, on the other hand, is not affected by
this problem because it benefits from the use of the PDA infrastructure.

To circumvent this problem I suggest implementing "safe_smp_processor_id()"
(it already exists in x86_64) for i386 and IA64 and use it as a replacement
for smp_processor_id in the reboot path to the dump capture kernel.  This is a
possible implementation for i386.

[PATCH] r/o bind mounts: monitor zeroing of i_nlink

Some filesystems, instead of simply decrementing i_nlink, simply zero it
during an unlink operation.  We need to catch these in addition to the

Mark Fasheh [Sun, 1 Oct 2006 06:29:05 +0000]
[PATCH] r/o bind mounts: clean up OCFS2 nlink handling

OCFS2 does some operations on i_nlink, then reverts them if some of its
operations fail to complete.  This does not fit in well with the
drop_nlink() logic where we expect i_nlink to stay at zero once it gets
there.

So, delay all of the nlink operations until we're sure that the operations
have completed.  Also, introduce a small helper to check whether an inode
has proper "unlinkable" i_nlink counts no matter whether it is a directory
or regular inode.

This patch is broken out from the others because it does contain some
logical changes.

[PATCH] r/o bind mounts: unlink: monitor i_nlink

When a filesystem decrements i_nlink to zero, it means that a write must be

We're shortly going to have keep filesystems from being remounted r/o between

[PATCH] reiserfs: eliminate minimum window size for bitmap searching

When a file system becomes fragmented (using MythTV, for example), the
bigalloc window searching ends up causing huge performance problems.  In a
file system presented by a user experiencing this bug, the file system was
90% free, but no 32-block free windows existed on the entire file system.
This causes the allocator to scan the entire file system for each 128k
write before backing down to searching for individual blocks.

In the end, finding a contiguous window for all the blocks in a write is an
advantageous special case, but one that can be found naturally when such a
window exists anyway.

This patch removes the bigalloc window searching, and has been proven to
fix the test case described above.

14 years ago[PATCH] reiserfs: on-demand bitmap loading
Jeff Mahoney [Sun, 1 Oct 2006 06:28:44 +0000]
[PATCH] reiserfs: on-demand bitmap loading

This is the patch the three previous ones have been leading up to.

It changes the behavior of ReiserFS from loading and caching all the bitmaps
as special, to treating the bitmaps like any other bit of metadata and just
letting the system-wide caches figure out what to hang on to.

Buffer heads are allocated on the fly, so there is no need to retain pointers
to all of them.  The caching of the metadata occurs when the data is read and
updated, and is considered invalid and uncached until then.

I needed to remove the vs-4040 check for performing a duplicate operation on a
particular bit.  The reason is that while the other sites for working with
bitmaps are allowed to schedule, is_reusable() is called from do_balance(),
which will panic if a schedule occurs in certain places.

The benefit of on-demand bitmaps clearly outweighs a sanity check that depends
on a compile-time option that is discouraged.

14 years ago[PATCH] reiserfs: reorganize bitmap loading functions
Jeff Mahoney [Sun, 1 Oct 2006 06:28:43 +0000]
[PATCH] reiserfs: reorganize bitmap loading functions

This patch moves the bitmap loading code from super.c to bitmap.c

The code is also restructured somewhat.  The only difference between new
format bitmaps and old format bitmaps is where they are.  That's a two liner
before loading the block to use the correct one.  There's no need for an
entirely separate code path.

The load path is generally the same, with the pattern being to throw out a
bunch of requests and then wait for them, then cache the metadata from the
contents.

Again, like the previous patches, the purpose is to set up for later ones.

Update: There was a bug in the previously posted version of this that resulted
in corruption.  The problem was that bitmap 0 on new format file systems must
be treated specially, and wasn't.  A stupid bug with an easy fix.

This is hopefully the last fix for the disaster that is the reiserfs bitmap
patch set.

If a bitmap block was full, first_zero_hint would end up at zero since it
would never be changed from it's zeroed out value.  This just sets it
beyond the end of the bitmap block.  If any bits are freed, it will be
reset to a valid bit.  When info->free_count = 0, then we already know it's
full.

Jeff Mahoney [Sun, 1 Oct 2006 06:28:42 +0000]
[PATCH] reiserfs: clean up bitmap block buffer head references

Similar to the SB_JOURNAL cleanup that was accepted a while ago, this patch
uses a temporary variable for buffer head references from the bitmap info
array.

This makes the code much more readable in some areas.

It also uses proper reference counting, doing a get_bh() after using the
pointer from the array and brelse()'ing it later.  This may seem silly, but a
later patch will replace the simple temporary variables with an actual read,
so the reference freeing will be used then.

14 years ago[PATCH] reiserfs: fix is_reusable bitmap check to not traverse the bitmap info array
Jeff Mahoney [Sun, 1 Oct 2006 06:28:40 +0000]
[PATCH] reiserfs: fix is_reusable bitmap check to not traverse the bitmap info array

There is a check in is_reusable to determine if a particular block is a bitmap
block.  It verifies this by going through the array of bitmap block buffer
heads and comparing the block number to each one.

Bitmap blocks are at defined locations on the disk in both old and current
formats.  Simply checking against the known good values is enough.

This is a trivial optimization for a non-production codepath, but this is the
first in a series of patches that will ultimately remove the buffer heads from
that array.

[PATCH] kill wall_jiffies

With 2.6.18-rc4-mm2, now wall_jiffies will always be the same as jiffies.
So we can kill wall_jiffies completely.

This is just a cleanup and logically should not change any real behavior
except for one thing: RTC updating code in (old) ppc and xtensa use a
condition "jiffies - wall_jiffies == 1".  This condition is never met so I
suppose it is just a bug.  I just remove that condition only instead of
kill the whole "if" block.

14 years ago[PATCH] ntp: convert to the NTP4 reference model
Roman Zippel [Sun, 1 Oct 2006 06:28:28 +0000]
[PATCH] ntp: convert to the NTP4 reference model

This converts the kernel ntp model into a model which matches the nanokernel
reference implementations.  The previous patches already increased the
resolution and precision of the computations, so that this conversion becomes
quite simple.

<linux@horizon.com> explains:

The original NTP kernel interface was defined in units of microseconds.
That's what Linux implements.  As computers have gotten faster and can now
split microseconds easily, a new kernel interface using nanosecond units was
defined ("the nanokernel", confusing as that name is to OS hackers), and
there's an STA_NANO bit in the adjtimex() status field to tell the application
which units it's using.

The current ntpd supports both, but Linux loses some possible timing
resolution because of quantization effects, and the ntpd hackers would really
like to be able to drop the backwards compatibility code.

Ulrich Windl has been maintaining a patch set to do the conversion for years,
but it's hard to keep in sync.

[PATCH] update legacy io handling for pmac

ppc can boot one single binary on prep, chrp and pmac boards.  ppc64 can
boot one single binary on pseries and G5 boards.  pmac has no legacy io,
probing for PC style legacy hardware (or accessing the legacy io area
regulary) may lead to a hard crash:

* add check for parport_pc, exit on pmac.  32bit chrp has no
  ->check_legacy_ioport, the probe is always called.  64bit chrp has
  check_legacy_ioport, check for a "parallel" node

* add check for isapnp, only PReP boards may have real ISA slots.  32bit
  PReP will have no ->check_legacy_ioport, the probe is always called.

* update code in i8042_platform_init.  Run ->check_legacy_ioport first,
  always call request_region.  No functional change.  Remove whitespace
  before i8042_reset init.

14 years ago[PATCH] Directed yield: cpu_relax variants for spinlocks and rw-locks
Martin Schwidefsky [Sun, 1 Oct 2006 06:27:43 +0000]
[PATCH] Directed yield: cpu_relax variants for spinlocks and rw-locks

On systems running with virtual cpus there is optimization potential in
regard to spinlocks and rw-locks.  If the virtual cpu that has taken a lock
is known to a cpu that wants to acquire the same lock it is beneficial to
yield the timeslice of the virtual cpu in favour of the cpu that has the
lock (directed yield).

With CONFIG_PREEMPT="n" this can be implemented by the architecture without
common code changes.  Powerpc already does this.

With CONFIG_PREEMPT="y" the lock loops are coded with _raw_spin_trylock,
_raw_read_trylock and _raw_write_trylock in kernel/spinlock.c.  If the lock
could not be taken cpu_relax is called.  A directed yield is not possible
because cpu_relax doesn't know anything about the lock.  To be able to
yield the lock in favour of the current lock holder variants of cpu_relax
for spinlocks and rw-locks are needed.  The new _raw_spin_relax,
_raw_read_relax and _raw_write_relax primitives differ from cpu_relax
insofar that they have an argument: a pointer to the lock structure.
