[PATCH] x86-64: survive having no irq mapping for a vector

Occasionally the kernel has bugs that result in no irq being found for a
given cpu vector.  If we acknowledge the irq the system has a good chance
of continuing even though we dropped an irq message.  If we continue to
simply print a message and not acknowledge the irq the system is likely to
become non-responsive shortly there after.

[PATCH] x86-64: avoid warning message livelock

I've seen my box paralyzed by an endless spew of

    rtc: lost some interrupts at 1024Hz.

messages on the serial console.  What seems to be happening is that
something real causes an interrupt to be lost and triggers the
message.  But then printing the message to the serial console (from
the hpet interrupt handler) takes more than 1/1024th of a second, and
then some more interrupts are lost, so the message triggers again....

Fix this by adding a printk_ratelimit() before printing the warning.

Benjamin Romer [Tue, 13 Feb 2007 12:26:25 +0000]
[PATCH] x86-64: update IO-APIC dest field to 8-bit for xAPIC

On the Unisys ES7000/ONE system, we encountered a problem where performing
a kexec reboot or dump on any cell other than cell 0 causes the system
timer to stop working, resulting in a hang during timer calibration in the
new kernel.

We traced the problem to one line of code in disable_IO_APIC(), which needs
to restore the timer's IO-APIC configuration before rebooting.  The code is
currently using the 4-bit physical destination field, rather than using the
8-bit logical destination field, and it cuts off the upper 4 bits of the
timer's APIC ID.  If we change this to use the logical destination field,
the timer works and we can kexec on the upper cells.  This was tested on
two different cells (0 and 2) in an ES7000/ONE system.

For reference, the relevant Intel xAPIC spec is kept at
ftp://download.intel.com/design/chipsets/e8501/datashts/30962001.pdf,
specifically on page 334.

Ingo Molnar [Tue, 13 Feb 2007 12:26:24 +0000]
[PATCH] x86: fix laptop bootup hang in init_acpi()

During kernel bootup, a new T60 laptop (CoreDuo, 32-bit) hangs about
10%-20% of the time in acpi_init():

 Calling initcall 0xc055ce1a: topology_init+0x0/0x2f()
 Calling initcall 0xc055d75e: mtrr_init_finialize+0x0/0x2c()
 Calling initcall 0xc05664f3: param_sysfs_init+0x0/0x175()
 Calling initcall 0xc014cb65: pm_sysrq_init+0x0/0x17()
 Calling initcall 0xc0569f99: init_bio+0x0/0xf4()
 Calling initcall 0xc056b865: genhd_device_init+0x0/0x50()
 Calling initcall 0xc056c4bd: fbmem_init+0x0/0x87()
 Calling initcall 0xc056dd74: acpi_init+0x0/0x1ee()

It's a hard hang that not even an NMI could punch through!  Frustratingly,
adding printks or function tracing to the ACPI code made the hangs go away
...

After some time an additional detail emerged: disabling the NMI watchdog
made these occasional hangs go away.

So i spent the better part of today trying to debug this and trying out
various theories when i finally found the likely reason for the hang: if
acpi_ns_initialize_devices() executes an _INI AML method and an NMI
happens to hit that AML execution in the wrong moment, the machine would
hang.  (my theory is that this must be some sort of chipset setup method
doing stores to chipset mmio registers?)

Unfortunately given the characteristics of the hang it was sheer
impossible to figure out which of the numerous AML methods is impacted
by this problem.

As a workaround i wrote an interface to disable chipset-based NMIs while
executing _INI sections - and indeed this fixed the hang.  I did a
boot-loop of 100 separate reboots and none hung - while without the patch
it would hang every 5-10 attempts.  Out of caution i did not touch the
nmi_watchdog=2 case (it's not related to the chipset anyway and didnt
hang).

I implemented this for both x86_64 and i686, tested the i686 laptop both
with nmi_watchdog=1 [which triggered the hangs] and nmi_watchdog=2, and
tested an Athlon64 box with the 64-bit kernel as well. Everything builds
and works with the patch applied.

they still retain the real mode values from initial boot.  VT disallows
execution of code under such conditions, which means hardware virtualization
can not be used to boot the kernel on Intel platforms, making the boot time
painfully slow.

This requires moving the GS load before the load of GS_BASE, so just move

[PATCH] x86-64: Fix fake numa for x86_64 machines with big IO hole

This patch resolves the issue of running with numa=fake=X on kernel command
line on x86_64 machines that have big IO hole.  While calculating the size
of each node now we look at the total hole size in that range.

Previously there were nodes that only had IO holes in them causing kernel
boot problems.  We now use the NODE_MIN_SIZE (64MB) as the minimum size of
memory that any node must have.  We reduce the number of allocated nodes if
the number of nodes specified on kernel command line results in any node
getting memory smaller than NODE_MIN_SIZE.

This change allows the extra memory to be incremented in NODE_MIN_SIZE
granule and uniformly distribute among as many nodes (called big nodes) as
possible.

[PATCH] i386: improve sched_clock() on i686

Clean up sched_clock() on i686: it will use the TSC if available and falls
back to jiffies only if the user asked for it to be disabled via notsc or
the CPU calibration code didnt figure out the right cpu_khz.

This generally makes the scheduler timestamps more finegrained, on all
hardware.  (the current scheduler is pretty resistant against asynchronous
sched_clock() values on different CPUs, it will allow at most up to a jiffy
of jitter.)

Also simplify sched_clock()'s check for TSC availability: propagate the
desire and ability to use the TSC into the tsc_disable flag, previously
this flag only indicated whether the notsc option was passed.  This makes
the rare low-res sched_clock() codepath a single branch off a read-mostly

Zachary Amsden [Tue, 13 Feb 2007 12:26:21 +0000]
[PATCH] i386: paravirt CPU hypercall batching mode

The VMI ROM has a mode where hypercalls can be queued and batched.  This turns
out to be a significant win during context switch, but must be done at a
specific point before side effects to CPU state are visible to subsequent
instructions.  This is similar to the MMU batching hooks already provided.
The same hooks could be used by the Xen backend to implement a context switch
multicall.

To explain a bit more about lazy modes in the paravirt patches, basically, the
idea is that only one of lazy CPU or MMU mode can be active at any given time.
 Lazy MMU mode is similar to this lazy CPU mode, and allows for batching of
multiple PTE updates (say, inside a remap loop), but to avoid keeping some
kind of state machine about when to flush cpu or mmu updates, we just allow
one or the other to be active.  Although there is no real reason a more
comprehensive scheme could not be implemented, there is also no demonstrated
need for this extra complexity.

13 years ago[PATCH] MM: page allocation hooks for VMI backend
Zachary Amsden [Tue, 13 Feb 2007 12:26:21 +0000]
[PATCH] MM: page allocation hooks for VMI backend

The VMI backend uses explicit page type notification to track shadow page
tables.  The allocation of page table roots is especially tricky.  We need to
clone the root for non-PAE mode while it is protected under the pgd lock to
correctly copy the shadow.

We don't need to allocate pgds in PAE mode, (PDPs in Intel terminology) as
they only have 4 entries, and are cached entirely by the processor, which
makes shadowing them rather simple.

For base page table level allocation, pmd_populate provides the exact hook
point we need.  Also, we need to allocate pages when splitting a large page,
and we must release pages before returning the page to any free pool.

Despite being required with these slightly odd semantics for VMI, Xen also
uses these hooks to determine the exact moment when page tables are created or
released.

[PATCH] x86-64: do not always end the stack trace with ULONG_MAX

It makes more sense to end the stack trace with ULONG_MAX only if
nr_entries < max_entries.  Otherwise, we lose one entry in the long stack
traces and cannot know whether the trace was complete or not.

[PATCH] x86-64: get rid of ARCH_HAVE_XTIME_LOCK

ARCH_HAVE_XTIME_LOCK is used by x86_64 arch .  This arch needs to place a
read only copy of xtime_lock into vsyscall page.  This read only copy is
named __xtime_lock, and xtime_lock is defined in
arch/x86_64/kernel/vmlinux.lds.S as an alias.  So the declaration of
xtime_lock in kernel/timer.c was guarded by ARCH_HAVE_XTIME_LOCK define,
defined to true on x86_64.

We can get same result with _attribute__((weak)) in the declaration. linker
should do the job.

[PATCH] mmconfig: Fix x86_64 ioremap base_address

Current mmconfig has some problems of remapped range.

a) In the case of broken MCFG tables on Asus etc., we need to remap 256M
   range, but currently only remap 1M.

b) The base address always corresponds to bus number 0, but currently we
   are assuming it corresponds to start bus number.

This patch fixes the above problems.

(akpm: Arjan suggests that if the MCFG table is broken we just shouldn't use
it, rather than try to work around things).

Jeremy Fitzhardinge [Tue, 13 Feb 2007 12:26:20 +0000]
[PATCH] i386: Convert i386 PDA code to use %fs

Convert the PDA code to use %fs rather than %gs as the segment for
per-processor data.  This is because some processors show a small but
measurable performance gain for reloading a NULL segment selector (as %fs
generally is in user-space) versus a non-NULL one (as %gs generally is).

On modern processors the difference is very small, perhaps undetectable.
Some old AMD "K6 3D+" processors are noticably slower when %fs is used
rather than %gs; I have no idea why this might be, but I think they're
sufficiently rare that it doesn't matter much.

This patch also fixes the math emulator, which had not been adjusted to
match the changed struct pt_regs.

[PATCH] x86-64: x86_64-make-the-numa-hash-function-nodemap-allocation fix fix

- Removed an extraneous debug message from allocate_cachealigned_map

- Changed extract_lsb_from_nodes to return 63 for the case where there was
  only one memory node.  The prevents the creation of the dynamic hashmap.

- Changed extract_lsb_from_nodes to use only the starting memory address of
  a node.  On an ES7000, our nodes overlap the starting and ending address,
  meaning, that we see nodes like

00000 - 10000
10000 - 20000

  But other systems have nodes whose start and end addresses do not overlap.
   For example:

00000 - 0FFFF
10000 - 1FFFF

  In this case, using the ending address will result in an LSB much lower
  than what is possible.  In this case an LSB of 1 when in reality it should
  be 16.

[PATCH] x86-64: Add __copy_from_user_nocache

This does user copies in fs write() into the page cache with write combining.
This pushes the destination out of the CPU's cache, but allows higher bandwidth
in some case.

The theory is that the page cache data is usually not touched by the
CPU again and it's better to not pollute the cache with it. Also it is a little
faster.

[NETFILTER]: xt_mac/xt_CLASSIFY: use IPv6 hook names for IPv6 registration

Use NF_IP6_ instead of NF_IP_. The values are identical, this is merely
cleanup.

[NETFILTER]: nf_conntrack: change nf_conntrack_l[34]proto_unregister to void

No caller checks the return value, and since its usually called within the
module unload path there's nothing a module could do about errors anyway,
so BUG on invalid conditions and return void.

Patrick McHardy [Mon, 12 Feb 2007 19:13:43 +0000]
[NETFILTER]: nf_conntrack: fix invalid conntrack statistics RCU assumption

NF_CT_STAT_INC assumes rcu_read_lock in nf_hook_slow disables
preemption as well, making it legal to use __get_cpu_var without
disabling preemption manually. The assumption is not correct anymore
with preemptable RCU, additionally we need to protect against softirqs
when not holding nf_conntrack_lock.

Add NF_CT_STAT_INC_ATOMIC macro, which disables local softirqs,
and use where necessary.
