Impact: makes it possible to define events in modules

The events are created by reading down the section that they are linked

This change will allow modules to add their tracing events to the list as
well.

10 years agotracing: make trace_seq operations available for core kernel
Steven Rostedt [Sat, 11 Apr 2009 16:59:57 +0000]
tracing: make trace_seq operations available for core kernel

In the process to make TRACE_EVENT macro work for modules, the trace_seq
operations must be available for core kernel code.

These operations are quite useful and can be used for other implementations.

The main idea is that we create a trace_seq handle that acts very much
like the seq_file handle.

struct trace_seq *s = kmalloc(sizeof(*s, GFP_KERNEL);

trace_seq_init(s);
trace_seq_printf(s, "some data %d\n", variable);

printk("%s", s->buffer);

The main use is to allow a top level function call several other functions
that may store printf like data into the buffer. Then at the end, the top
level function can process all the data with any method it would like to.
It could be passed to userspace, output via printk or even use seq_file:

trace_seq_to_user(s, ubuf, cnt);
seq_puts(m, s->buffer);

10 years agotracing: create automated trace defines
Steven Rostedt [Fri, 10 Apr 2009 13:36:00 +0000]
tracing: create automated trace defines

This patch lowers the number of places a developer must modify to add
new tracepoints. The current method to add a new tracepoint
into an existing system is to write the trace point macro in the
trace header with one of the macros TRACE_EVENT, TRACE_FORMAT or
DECLARE_TRACE, then they must add the same named item into the C file
with the macro DEFINE_TRACE(name) and then add the trace point.

This change cuts out the needing to add the DEFINE_TRACE(name).
Every file that uses the tracepoint must still include the trace/<type>.h
file, but the one C file must also add a define before the including
of that file.

 #define CREATE_TRACE_POINTS
 #include <trace/mytrace.h>

This will cause the trace/mytrace.h file to also produce the C code
necessary to implement the trace point.

Note, if more than one trace/<type>.h is used to create the C code
it is best to list them all together.

 #define CREATE_TRACE_POINTS
 #include <trace/foo.h>
 #include <trace/bar.h>
 #include <trace/fido.h>

Thanks to Mathieu Desnoyers and Christoph Hellwig for coming up with
the cleaner solution of the define above the includes over my first
design to have the C code include a "special" header.

This patch converts sched, irq and lockdep and skb to use this new
method.

10 years agotracing: consolidate trace and trace_event headers
Steven Rostedt [Fri, 10 Apr 2009 12:54:16 +0000]
tracing: consolidate trace and trace_event headers

Impact: clean up

Neil Horman (et. al.) criticized the way the trace events were broken up
into two files. The reason for that was that ftrace needed to separate out
the declarations from where the #include <linux/tracepoint.h> was used.
It then dawned on me that the tracepoint.h header only needs to define the
TRACE_EVENT macro if it is not already defined.

The solution is simply to test if TRACE_EVENT is defined, and if it is not
then the linux/tracepoint.h header can define it. This change consolidates
all the <traces>.h and <traces>_event_types.h into the <traces>.h file.

10 years agotracing/filters: allow on-the-fly filter switching
Tom Zanussi [Mon, 13 Apr 2009 08:17:50 +0000]
tracing/filters: allow on-the-fly filter switching

This patch allows event filters to be safely removed or switched
on-the-fly while avoiding the use of rcu or the suspension of tracing of
previous versions.

It does it by adding a new filter_pred_none() predicate function which
does nothing and by never deallocating either the predicates or any of
the filter_pred members used in matching; the predicate lists are
allocated and initialized during ftrace_event_calls initialization.

Whenever a filter is removed or replaced, the filter_pred_* functions
currently in use by the affected ftrace_event_call are immediately
switched over to to the filter_pred_none() function, while the rest of
the filter_pred members are left intact, allowing any currently
executing filter_pred_* functions to finish up, using the values they're
currently using.

In the case of filter replacement, the new predicate values are copied
into the old predicates after the above step, and the filter_pred_none()
functions are replaced by the filter_pred_* functions for the new
filter.  In this case, it is possible though very unlikely that a
previous filter_pred_* is still running even after the
filter_pred_none() switch and the switch to the new filter_pred_*.  In
that case, however, because nothing has been deallocated in the
filter_pred, the worst that can happen is that the old filter_pred_*
function sees the new values and as a result produces either a false
positive or a false negative, depending on the values it finds.

So one downside to this method is that rarely, it can produce a bad
match during the filter switch, but it should be possible to live with
that, IMHO.

The other downside is that at least in this patch the predicate lists
are always pre-allocated, taking up memory from the start.  They could
probably be allocated on first-use, and de-allocated when tracing is
completely stopped - if this patch makes sense, I could create another
one to do that later on.

Oh, and it also places a restriction on the size of __arrays in events,
currently set to 128, since they can't be larger than the now embedded
str_val arrays in the filter_pred struct.

10 years agotracing/infrastructure: separate event tracer from event support
Tom Zanussi [Wed, 8 Apr 2009 08:14:01 +0000]
tracing/infrastructure: separate event tracer from event support

Add a new config option, CONFIG_EVENT_TRACING that gets selected
when CONFIG_TRACING is selected and adds everything needed by the stuff
in trace_export - basically all the event tracing support needed by e.g.
bprint, minus the actual events, which are only included if
CONFIG_EVENT_TRACER is selected.

So CONFIG_EVENT_TRACER can be used to turn on or off the generated events
(what I think of as the 'event tracer'), while CONFIG_EVENT_TRACING turns
on or off the base event tracing support used by both the event tracer and
the other things such as bprint that can't be configured out.

10 years agoring-buffer: add ring_buffer_discard_commit
Steven Rostedt [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 04:09:41 +0000]
ring-buffer: add ring_buffer_discard_commit

The ring_buffer_discard_commit is similar to ring_buffer_event_discard
but it can only be done on an event that has yet to be commited.
Unpredictable results can happen otherwise.

The main difference between ring_buffer_discard_commit and
ring_buffer_event_discard is that ring_buffer_discard_commit will try
to free the data in the ring buffer if nothing has addded data
after the reserved event. If something did, then it acts almost the
same as ring_buffer_event_discard followed by a
ring_buffer_unlock_commit.

Note, either ring_buffer_commit_discard and ring_buffer_unlock_commit
can be called on an event, not both.

This commit also exports both discard functions to be usable by
GPL modules.

tracing/filters: add run-time field descriptions to TRACE_EVENT_FORMAT events

This patch adds run-time field descriptions to all the event formats
exported using TRACE_EVENT_FORMAT.  It also hooks up all the tracers
that use them (i.e. the tracers in the 'ftrace subsystem') so they can
also have their output filtered by the event-filtering mechanism.

When I was testing this, there were a couple of things that fooled me
into thinking the filters weren't working, when actually they were -
I'll mention them here so others don't make the same mistakes (and file
bug reports. ;-)

One is that some of the tracers trace multiple events e.g. the
sched_switch tracer uses the context_switch and wakeup events, and if
you don't set filters on all of the traced events, the unfiltered output
from the events without filters on them can make it look like the
filtering as a whole isn't working properly, when actually it is doing
what it was asked to do - it just wasn't asked to do the right thing.

The other is that for the really high-volume tracers e.g. the function
tracer, the volume of filtered events can be so high that it pushes the
unfiltered events out of the ring buffer before they can be read so e.g.
cat'ing the trace file repeatedly shows either no output, or once in
awhile some output but that isn't there the next time you read the
trace, which isn't what you normally expect when reading the trace file.
If you read from the trace_pipe file though, you can catch them before
they disappear.

Changes from v1:

As suggested by Frederic Weisbecker:

- get rid of externs in functions
- added unlikely() to filter_check_discard()

10 years agoPM/Hibernate: Wait for SCSI devices scan to complete during resume
Rafael J. Wysocki [Sun, 12 Apr 2009 18:06:56 +0000]
PM/Hibernate: Wait for SCSI devices scan to complete during resume

There is a race between resume from hibernation and the asynchronous
scanning of SCSI devices and to prevent it from happening we need to
call scsi_complete_async_scans() during resume from hibernation.

In addition, if the resume from hibernation is userland-driven, it's
better to wait for all device probes in the kernel to complete before
attempting to open the resume device.

Serge E. Hallyn [Mon, 13 Apr 2009 14:56:14 +0000]
add some long-missing capabilities to fs_mask

When POSIX capabilities were introduced during the 2.1 Linux
cycle, the fs mask, which represents the capabilities which having
fsuid==0 is supposed to grant, did not include CAP_MKNOD and
CAP_LINUX_IMMUTABLE.  However, before capabilities the privilege
to call these did in fact depend upon fsuid==0.

This patch introduces those capabilities into the fsmask,
restoring the old behavior.

See the thread starting at http://lkml.org/lkml/2009/3/11/157 for
reference.

Note that if this fix is deemed valid, then earlier kernel versions (2.4
and 2.2) ought to be fixed too.

Changelog:
[Mar 23] Actually delete old CAP_FS_SET definition...

i2c: Fix sparse warnings for I2C_BOARD_INFO()

Since the first argument to I2C_BOARD_INFO() must be a string constant,
there is no need to parenthesise it, and adding parentheses results in
an invalid initialiser for char[].  gcc obviously accepts this syntax as
an extension, but sparse complains, e.g.:

Therefore, remove the parentheses.

lockdep: continue lock debugging despite some taints

Impact: broaden lockdep checks

Lockdep is disabled after any kernel taints. This might be convenient
to ignore bad locking issues which sources come from outside the kernel
tree. Nevertheless, it might be a frustrating experience for the
staging developers or those who experience a warning but are focused
on another things that require lockdep.

The v2 of this patch simply don't disable anymore lockdep in case
of TAINT_CRAP and TAINT_WARN events.

10 years agolockdep: warn about lockdep disabling after kernel taint
Frederic Weisbecker [Sat, 11 Apr 2009 01:17:17 +0000]
lockdep: warn about lockdep disabling after kernel taint

Impact: provide useful missing info for developers

Kernel taint can occur in several situations such as warnings,
load of prorietary or staging modules, bad page, etc...

But when such taint happens, a developer might still be working on
the kernel, expecting that lockdep is still enabled. But a taint
disables lockdep without ever warning about it.
Such a kernel behaviour doesn't really help for kernel development.

This patch adds this missing warning.

Since the taint is done most of the time after the main message that
explain the real source issue, it seems safe to warn about it inside
add_taint() so that it appears at last, without hurting the main
information.

v2: Use a generic helper to disable lockdep instead of an
    open coded xchg().

pat_disable cannot be __cpuinit anymore because it's called from pat_init

from the function pat_init() to the function .cpuinit.text:pat_disable()
The function pat_init() references
the function __cpuinit pat_disable().
This is often because pat_init lacks a __cpuinit
annotation or the annotation of pat_disable is wrong.

Non CONFIG_X86_PAT version of pat_disable is static inline, so this version

10 years agoasync: Fix module loading async-work regression
Linus Torvalds [Fri, 10 Apr 2009 19:17:41 +0000]
async: Fix module loading async-work regression

Several drivers use asynchronous work to do device discovery, and we
synchronize with them in the compiled-in case before we actually try to
mount root filesystems etc.

However, when compiled as modules, that synchronization is missing - the
module loading completes, but the driver hasn't actually finished
probing for devices, and that means that any user mode that expects to
use the devices after the 'insmod' is now potentially broken.

We already saw one case of a similar issue in the ACPI battery code,
where the kernel itself expected the module to be all done, and unmapped
the init memory - but the async device discovery was still running.
That got hacked around by just removing the "__init" (see commit
5d38258ec026921a7b266f4047ebeaa75db358e5 "ACPI battery: fix async boot
oops"), but the real fix is to just make the module loading wait for all
async work to be completed.

It will slow down module loading, but since common devices should be
built in anyway, and since the bug is really annoying and hard to handle
from user space (and caused several S3 resume regressions), the simple
fix to wait is the right one.

This fixes at least

http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=13063

but probably a few other bugzilla entries too (12936, for example), and
is confirmed to fix Rafael's storage driver breakage after resume bug
report (no bugzilla entry).

We should also be able to now revert that ACPI battery fix.

kbuild: fix spurious initramfs rebuild

When gen_initramfs_list is used to generate make dependencies, it
includes symbolic links, for which make tracks the link target. Any
change to that target will cause an initramfs rebuild, even if the
symlink points to something outside of the initramfs directory.

If the target happens to be /tmp, the rebuild occurs for each kernel
build, since gen_initramfs_list uses mktemp...

Proposed way to fix it is to omit symbolic links from generated
dependencies, but this has a small drawback: changing perm/owner on a
symlink will go unnoticed.

kconfig: fix update-po-config to accect backslash in input

Massimo Maiurana reported (slightly edited):

=====
In latest 2.6.29 "make update-po-config" fails at msguniq invocation
with an "invalid control sequence" error.
The offending string is the following, and it's located in
drivers/staging/panel/Kconfig:72:

    "'\e[L' which are specific to the LCD, and a few ANSI codes. The"

looks to me like gettext expects strings in printf format, so in
this case it thinks "\e" is a control sequence but doesn't recognise
it as a valid one.

A valid solution would be to tell kxgettext to automatically
escape this kind of strings in the */config.pot he produces, so that
msguniq would not complain.
=====

This patch implements the suggested escaping.

percpu: unbreak alpha percpu

For the time being, move the generic percpu_*() accessors to
linux/percpu.h.

asm-generic/percpu.h is meant to carry generic stuff for low level
stuff - declarations, definitions and pointer offset calculation

x86: fix set_fixmap to use phys_addr_t

Impact: fix kprobes crash on 32-bit with RAM above 4G

Use phys_addr_t for receiving a physical address argument
instead of unsigned long. This allows fixmap to handle
pages higher than 4GB on x86-32.

David Howells [Fri, 10 Apr 2009 13:33:48 +0000]
Separate out the proc- and unit-specific header directories from the general
MN10300 arch headers and place them instead in the same directories as contain
the .c files for the processor and unit implementations.

This permits the symlinks include/asm/proc and include/asm/unit to be
dispensed with.  This does, however, require that #include <asm/proc/xxx.h> be
converted to #include <proc/xxx.h> and similarly for asm/unit -> unit.
