9 years agoperf/record: simplify TRACE_INFO tracepoint check
Tom Zanussi [Wed, 5 May 2010 03:20:16 +0000]
perf/record: simplify TRACE_INFO tracepoint check

Fix a couple of inefficiencies and redundancies related to
have_tracepoints() and its use when checking whether to write
TRACE_INFO.

First, there's no need to use get_tracepoints_path() in
have_tracepoints() - we really just want the part that checks whether
any attributes correspondo to tracepoints.

Second, we really don't care about raw_samples per se - tracepoints
are always raw_samples.  In any case, the have_tracepoints() check
should be sufficient to decide whether or not to write TRACE_INFO.

9 years agoperf: Fix performance issue with perf report

perf: Fix performance issue with perf report

On a large machine we spend a lot of time in perf_header__find_attr when
running perf report.

If we are parsing a file without PERF_SAMPLE_ID then for each sample we call
perf_header__find_attr and loop through all counter IDs, never finding a match.
As the machine gets larger there are more per cpu counters and we spend an
awful lot of time in there.

The patch below initialises each sample id to -1ULL and checks for this in
perf_header__find_attr. We may need to do something more intelligent eventually
(eg a hash lookup from counter id to attr) but this at least fixes the most
common usage of perf report.

9 years agoperf: record TRACE_INFO only if using tracepoints and SAMPLE_RAW
Tom Zanussi [Mon, 3 May 2010 05:14:48 +0000]
perf: record TRACE_INFO only if using tracepoints and SAMPLE_RAW

The current perf code implicitly assumes SAMPLE_RAW means tracepoints
are being used, but doesn't check for that.  It happily records the
TRACE_INFO even if SAMPLE_RAW is used without tracepoints, but when the
perf data is read it won't go any further when it finds TRACE_INFO but
no tracepoints, and displays misleading errors.

This adds a check for both in perf-record, and won't record TRACE_INFO
unless both are true.  This at least allows perf report -D to dump raw
events, and avoids triggering a misleading error condition in perf
trace.  It doesn't actually enable the non-tracepoint raw events to be
displayed in perf trace, since perf trace currently only deals with
tracepoint events.

9 years agoperf: add perf-inject builtin
Tom Zanussi [Sat, 1 May 2010 06:41:20 +0000]
perf: add perf-inject builtin

Currently, perf 'live mode' writes build-ids at the end of the
session, which isn't actually useful for processing live mode events.

What would be better would be to have the build-ids sent before any of
the samples that reference them, which can be done by processing the
event stream and retrieving the build-ids on the first hit.  Doing
that in perf-record itself, however, is off-limits.

This patch introduces perf-inject, which does the same job while
leaving perf-record untouched.  Normal mode perf still records the
build-ids at the end of the session as it should, but for live mode,
perf-inject can be injected in between the record and report steps
e.g.:

perf record -o - ./hackbench 10 | perf inject -v -b | perf report -v -i -

perf-inject reads a perf-record event stream and repipes it to stdout.
At any point the processing code can inject other events into the
event stream - in this case build-ids (-b option) are read and
injected as needed into the event stream.

Build-ids are just the first user of perf-inject - potentially
anything that needs userspace processing to augment the trace stream
with additional information could make use of this facility.

9 years agohw-breakpoints: Get the number of available registers on boot dynamically
Frederic Weisbecker [Fri, 23 Apr 2010 03:59:55 +0000]
hw-breakpoints: Get the number of available registers on boot dynamically

The breakpoint generic layer assumes that archs always know in advance
the static number of address registers available to host breakpoints
through the HBP_NUM macro.

However this is not true for every archs. For example Arm needs to get
this information dynamically to handle the compatiblity between
different versions.

To solve this, this patch proposes to drop the static HBP_NUM macro
and let the arch provide the number of available slots through a
new hw_breakpoint_slots() function. For archs that have
CONFIG_HAVE_MIXED_BREAKPOINTS_REGS selected, it will be called once
as the number of registers fits for instruction and data breakpoints
together.
For the others it will be called first to get the number of
instruction breakpoint registers and another time to get the
data breakpoint registers, the targeted type is given as a
parameter of hw_breakpoint_slots().

9 years agohw-breakpoints: Handle breakpoint weight in allocation constraints
Frederic Weisbecker [Mon, 12 Apr 2010 22:32:30 +0000]
hw-breakpoints: Handle breakpoint weight in allocation constraints

Depending on their nature and on what an arch supports, breakpoints
may consume more than one address register. For example a simple
absolute address match usually only requires one address register.
But an address range match may consume two registers.

Currently our slot allocation constraints, that tend to reflect the
limited arch's resources, always consider that a breakpoint consumes
one slot.

Then provide a way for archs to tell us the weight of a breakpoint
through a new hw_breakpoint_weight() helper. This weight will be
computed against the generic allocation constraints instead of
a constant value.

9 years agohw-breakpoints: Separate constraint space for data and instruction breakpoints
Frederic Weisbecker [Sun, 11 Apr 2010 16:55:56 +0000]
hw-breakpoints: Separate constraint space for data and instruction breakpoints

There are two outstanding fashions for archs to implement hardware
breakpoints.

The first is to separate breakpoint address pattern definition
space between data and instruction breakpoints. We then have
typically distinct instruction address breakpoint registers
and data address breakpoint registers, delivered with
separate control registers for data and instruction breakpoints
as well. This is the case of PowerPc and ARM for example.

The second consists in having merged breakpoint address space
definition between data and instruction breakpoint. Address
registers can host either instruction or data address and
the access mode for the breakpoint is defined in a control
register. This is the case of x86 and Super H.

This patch adds a new CONFIG_HAVE_MIXED_BREAKPOINTS_REGS config
that archs can select if they belong to the second case. Those
will have their slot allocation merged for instructions and
data breakpoints.

The others will have a separate slot tracking between data and
instruction breakpoints.

9 years agohw-breakpoints: Change/Enforce some breakpoints policies
Frederic Weisbecker [Sun, 18 Apr 2010 16:11:53 +0000]
hw-breakpoints: Change/Enforce some breakpoints policies

The current policies of breakpoints in x86 and SH are the following:

- task bound breakpoints can only break on userspace addresses
- cpu wide breakpoints can only break on kernel addresses

The former rule prevents ptrace breakpoints to be set to trigger on
kernel addresses, which is good. But as a side effect, we can't
breakpoint on kernel addresses for task bound breakpoints.

The latter rule simply makes no sense, there is no reason why we
can't set breakpoints on userspace while performing cpu bound
profiles.

We want the following new policies:

- task bound breakpoint can set userspace address breakpoints, with
no particular privilege required.
- task bound breakpoints can set kernelspace address breakpoints but
must be privileged to do that.
- cpu bound breakpoints can do what they want as they are privileged
already.

To implement these new policies, this patch checks if we are dealing
with a kernel address breakpoint, if so and if the exclude_kernel
parameter is set, we tell the user that the breakpoint is invalid,
which makes a good generic ptrace protection.
If we don't have exclude_kernel, ensure the user has the right
privileges as kernel breakpoints are quite sensitive (risk of
trap recursion attacks and global performance impacts).

9 years agoperf: Fix warning while reading ring buffer headers
Frederic Weisbecker [Sat, 1 May 2010 01:08:46 +0000]
perf: Fix warning while reading ring buffer headers

commit e9e94e3bd862d31777335722e747e97d9821bc1d
"perf trace: Ignore "overwrite" field if present in
/events/header_page" makes perf trace launching spurious warnings
about unexpected tokens read:

Warning: Error: expected type 6 but read 4

This change tries to handle the overcommit field in the header_page
file whenever this field is present or not.

The problem is that if this field is not present, we try to find it
and give up in the middle of the line when we realize we are actually
dealing with another field, which is the "data" one. And this failure
abandons the file pointer in the middle of the "data" description
line:

field: u64 timestamp; offset:0; size:8; signed:0;
field: local_t commit; offset:8; size:8; signed:1;
field: char data; offset:16; size:4080; signed:1;
                      ^^^
                      Here

What happens next is that we want to read this line to parse the data
field, but we fail because the pointer is not in the beginning of the
line.

We could probably fix that by rewinding the pointer. But in fact we
don't care much about these headers that only concern the ftrace
ring-buffer. We don't use them from perf.

Just skip this part of perf.data, but don't remove it from recording
to stay compatible with olders perf.data

kgdb: don't needlessly skip PAGE_USER test for Fsl booke

The bypassing of this test is a leftover from 2.4 vintage
kernels, and is no longer appropriate, or even used by KGDB.
Currently KGDB uses probe_kernel_write() for all access to
memory via the KGDB core, so it can simply be deleted.

This fixes CVE-2010-1446.

9 years agoperf test: Initial regression testing command
Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo [Thu, 29 Apr 2010 21:58:32 +0000]
perf test: Initial regression testing command

First an example with the first internal test:

[acme@doppio linux-2.6-tip]$ perf test
 1: vmlinux symtab matches kallsyms: Ok

So it run just one test, that is "vmlinux symtab matches kallsyms", and it was
successful.

If we run it in verbose mode, we'll see details about errors and extra warnings
for non-fatal problems:

[acme@doppio linux-2.6-tip]$ perf test -v
 1: vmlinux symtab matches kallsyms:
--- start ---
Looking at the vmlinux_path (5 entries long)
No build_id in vmlinux, ignoring it
No build_id in /boot/vmlinux, ignoring it
No build_id in /boot/vmlinux-2.6.34-rc4-tip+, ignoring it
Using /lib/modules/2.6.34-rc4-tip+/build/vmlinux for symbols
Maps only in vmlinux:
 ffffffff81cb81b1-ffffffff81e1149b 0 [kernel].init.text
 ffffffff81e1149c-ffffffff9fffffff 0 [kernel].exit.text
 ffffffffff600000-ffffffffff6000ff 0 [kernel].vsyscall_0
 ffffffffff600100-ffffffffff6003ff 0 [kernel].vsyscall_fn
 ffffffffff600400-ffffffffff6007ff 0 [kernel].vsyscall_1
 ffffffffff600800-ffffffffffffffff 0 [kernel].vsyscall_2
Maps in vmlinux with a different name in kallsyms:
 ffffffffff600000-ffffffffff6000ff 0 [kernel].vsyscall_0 in kallsyms as [kernel].0
 ffffffffff600100-ffffffffff6003ff 0 [kernel].vsyscall_fn in kallsyms as:
*ffffffffff600100-ffffffffff60012f 0 [kernel].2
 ffffffffff600400-ffffffffff6007ff 0 [kernel].vsyscall_1 in kallsyms as [kernel].6
 ffffffffff600800-ffffffffffffffff 0 [kernel].vsyscall_2 in kallsyms as [kernel].8
Maps only in kallsyms:
 ffffffffff600130-ffffffffff6003ff 0 [kernel].4
---- end ----
vmlinux symtab matches kallsyms: Ok
[acme@doppio linux-2.6-tip]$

In the above case we only know the name of the non contiguous kernel ranges in
the address space when reading the symbol information from the ELF symtab in
vmlinux.

The /proc/kallsyms file lack this, we only notice they are separate because
there are modules after the kernel and after that more kernel functions, so we
need to have a module rbtree backed by the module .ko path to get symtabs in
the vmlinux case.

The tool uses it to match by address to emit appropriate warning, but don't
considers this fatal.

The .init.text and .exit.text ines, of course, aren't in kallsyms, so I left
these cases just as extra info in verbose mode.

The end of the sections also aren't in kallsyms, so we the symbols layer does
another pass and sets the end addresses as the next map start minus one, which
sometimes pads, causing harmless mismatches.

But at least the symbols match, tested it by copying /proc/kallsyms to
/tmp/kallsyms and doing changes to see if they were detected.

This first test also should serve as a first stab at documenting the
symbol library by providing a self contained example that exercises it
together with comments about what is being done.

More tests to check if actions done on a monitored app, like doing mmaps, etc,
makes the kernel generate the expected events should be added next.

xfs: add a shrinker to background inode reclaim

On low memory boxes or those with highmem, kernel can OOM before the
background reclaims inodes via xfssyncd. Add a shrinker to run inode
reclaim so that it inode reclaim is expedited when memory is low.

This is more complex than it needs to be because the VM folk don't
want a context added to the shrinker infrastructure. Hence we need
to add a global list of XFS mount structures so the shrinker can

If dentry found stale happens to be a root of disconnected tree, we
can't d_drop() it; its d_hash is actually part of s_anon and d_drop()

The driver needs specific PHY and board support code for each SFC4000
board; there is no point trying to continue if it is missing.
Currently unsupported boards can trigger an 'oops'.

9 years agox86/PCI: compute Address Space length rather than using _LEN
Bjorn Helgaas [Tue, 27 Apr 2010 20:45:43 +0000]
x86/PCI: compute Address Space length rather than using _LEN

ACPI _CRS Address Space Descriptors have _MIN, _MAX, and _LEN.  Linux has
been computing Address Spaces as [_MIN to _MIN + _LEN - 1].  Based on the
tests in the bug reports below, Windows apparently uses [_MIN to _MAX].

Per spec (ACPI 4.0, Table 6-40), for _CRS fixed-size, fixed location
descriptors, "_LEN must be (_MAX - _MIN + 1)", and when that's true, it
doesn't matter which way we compute the end.  But of course, there are
BIOSes that don't follow this rule, and we're better off if Linux handles
those exceptions the same way as Windows.

This patch makes Linux use [_MIN to _MAX], as Windows seems to do.  This
effectively reverts d558b483d5 and 03db42adfe and replaces them with
simpler code.

powerpc/numa: Add form 1 NUMA affinity

Firmware changed the way it represents memory and cpu affinity on POWER7.
Unfortunately the old method now caps the topology to work around issues

need to use the new form 1 affinity information.

We set the form 1 field in the client architecture, and if we see "1" in the
ibm,associativity-form property firmware supports form 1 affinity and
we should look at the first field in the ibm,associativity-reference-points

9 years agonet/usb: add sierra_net.c driver
Elina Pasheva [Wed, 28 Apr 2010 01:06:41 +0000]
net/usb: add sierra_net.c driver

Re-submitted based on comments from netdev community.
Summary of the changes:
1. Improved error handling.
2. Added the missing timeout arguments to usb_control_msg().

The following is a new Linux driver which exposes certain models of Sierra
Wireless modems to the operating system as Network Interface Cards (NICs).

This driver requires a version of the sierra.c driver which supports
blacklisting to work properly. The blacklist in sierra.c rejects the interfaces
claimed by sierra_net.c. Likewise, the sierra_net.c driver only accepts
(i.e. whitelists) the interface(s) used for USB-to-WWAN traffic.
The version of sierra.c which supports blacklisting is
available from the sierra wireless knowledge base page for older kernels. It is
also available in Linux kernel starting from version 2.6.31.

This driver works with all Sierra Wireless devices configured with PID=68A3
like USB305, USB306 provided the corresponding firmware version is I2.0
(for USB305) or M3.0 (for USB306) and later.
This driver will not work with earlier firmware versions than the ones shown
above. In this case the driver will issue an error message indicating
incompatibility and will not serve the device's USB-to-WWAN interface.

Sierra_net.c sits atop a pre-existing Linux driver called usbnet.c.
A series of hook functions are provided in sierra_net.c which are called by
usbnet.c in response to a particular condition such as receipt or transmission
of a data packet. As such, usbnet.c does most of the work of making
a modem appear to the system as a network device and for properly exchanging
traffic between the USB subsystem and the Network card interface.
Sierra_net.c is concerned with managing the data exchanged between the
USB-to-WWAN interface and the upper layers of the operating system.

9 years agokeys: the request_key() syscall should link an existing key to the dest keyring
David Howells [Tue, 27 Apr 2010 20:13:08 +0000]
keys: the request_key() syscall should link an existing key to the dest keyring

The request_key() system call and request_key_and_link() should make a
link from an existing key to the destination keyring (if supplied), not
just from a new key to the destination keyring.

This can be tested by:

ring=`keyctl newring fred @s`
keyctl request2 user debug:a a
keyctl request user debug:a $ring
keyctl list $ring

If it says:

keyring is empty

then it didn't work.  If it shows something like:

1 key in keyring:
1070462727: --alswrv     0     0 user: debug:a

then it did.

request_key() system call is meant to recursively search all your keyrings for
the key you desire, and, optionally, if it doesn't exist, call out to userspace
to create one for you.

If request_key() finds or creates a key, it should, optionally, create a link
to that key from the destination keyring specified.

Therefore, if, after a successful call to request_key() with a desination
keyring specified, you see the destination keyring empty, the code didn't work
correctly.

If you see the found key in the keyring, then it did - which is what the patch
is required for.

gpio: fix pca953x set_type 'scheduling while atomic' bug

Bill Gatliff reported the following bug when using the irq_chip facility
of the pca953x driver on a PPC platform:

BUG: scheduling while atomic: insmod/1530/0x00000002

He traced it back to an i2c transaction in pca953x_irq_set_type(), which
can be called with interrupt disabled (from __setup_irq()).  As the i2c
controller can sleep while sending a message, this qualifies as a bad
idea.

This patch moves the i2c transaction to pca953x_irq_bus_sync_unlock(),
where it is actually safe to send an i2c message.

Michael Chan [Tue, 27 Apr 2010 11:28:09 +0000]
bnx2: Fix lost MSI-X problem on 5709 NICs.

It has been reported that under certain heavy traffic conditions in MSI-X
mode, the driver can lose an MSI-X vector causing all packets in the
associated rx/tx ring pair to be dropped.  The problem is caused by
the chip dropping the write to unmask the MSI-X vector by the kernel
(when migrating the IRQ for example).

This can be prevented by increasing the GRC timeout value for these
register read and write operations.

Thanks to Dell for helping us debug this problem.

cxgb3: Wait longer for control packets on initialization

In some Power7 platforms, when using VIOS (Virtual I/O Server), we
need to wait longer for control packets to finish transfer during
initialization.
Without this change, initialization may fail prematurely.

e1000e: enable/disable ASPM L0s and L1 and ERT according to hardware errata

Prompted by a previous patch submitted by Matthew Garret <mjg@redhat.com>,
further digging into errata documentation reveals the current enabling or
disabling of ASPM L0s and L1 states for certain parts supported by this
driver are incorrect.  82571 and 82572 should always disable L1.  For
standard frames, 82573/82574/82583 can enable L1 but L0s must be disabled,
and for jumbo frames 82573/82574 must disable L1.  This allows for some
parts to enable L1 in certain configurations leading to better power
savings.

Also according to the same errata, Early Receive (ERT) should be disabled
on 82573 when using jumbo frames.

ixgbe: Power down PHY during driver resets

The PHY laser is still on during driver init.  It's allowing
garbage to hit our FIFO, which eventually can cause the entire
device to die.  Power down the laser while setting up the device,
and re-enable the laser before getting link.

Remove redundant check for CONFIG_MMU

The checks for CONFIG_MMU at this location are duplicated as all the code is
located inside a #ifndef CONFIG_MMU block. So the first conditional block will
always be included while the second never will.
