Impact: let the function-graph-tracer be aware of the irq entrypoints

Add a new .irqentry.text section to store the irq entrypoints functions
inside the same section. This way, the tracer will be able to signal
an interrupts triggering on output by recognizing these entrypoints.

tracing/function-graph-tracer: introduce __notrace_funcgraph to filter special functions

Impact: trace more functions

When the function graph tracer is configured, three more files are not
traced to prevent only four functions to be traced. And this impacts the
normal function tracer too.


I had crashes when I let this file traced. After some debugging, I saw
that the "current" task point was changed inside__swtich_to(), ie:
"write_pda(pcurrent, next_p);" inside process_64.c Since the tracer store
the original return address of the function inside current, we had
crashes. Only __switch_to() has to be excluded from tracing.

Because of a function used internally by the function graph tracer:

To let the other functions inside these files to be traced, this patch
introduces the __notrace_funcgraph function prefix which is __notrace if

11 years agoftrace: graph of a single function
Steven Rostedt [Wed, 3 Dec 2008 20:36:57 +0000]
ftrace: graph of a single function

This patch adds the file:


which can be used along with the function graph tracer.

When this file is empty, the function graph tracer will act as
usual. When the file has a function in it, the function graph
tracer will only trace that function.

For example:

 # echo blk_unplug > /debugfs/tracing/set_graph_function
 # cat /debugfs/tracing/trace
 | 2)  make-19003  =>  kjournald-2219

 2)               |  blk_unplug() {
 2)               |    dm_unplug_all() {
 2)               |      dm_get_table() {
 2)      1.381 us |        _read_lock();
 2)      0.911 us |        dm_table_get();
 2)      1. 76 us |        _read_unlock();
 2) +   12.912 us |      }
 2)               |      dm_table_unplug_all() {
 2)               |        blk_unplug() {
 2)      0.778 us |          generic_unplug_device();
 2)      2.409 us |        }
 2)      5.992 us |      }
 2)      0.813 us |      dm_table_put();
 2) +   29. 90 us |    }
 2) +   34.532 us |  }

You can add up to 32 functions into this file. Currently we limit it
to 32, but this may change with later improvements.

To add another function, use the append '>>':

  # echo sys_read >> /debugfs/tracing/set_graph_function
  # cat /debugfs/tracing/set_graph_function

Using the '>' will clear out the function and write anew:

  # echo sys_write > /debug/tracing/set_graph_function
  # cat /debug/tracing/set_graph_function

Note, if you have function graph running while doing this, the small
time between clearing it and updating it will cause the graph to
record all functions. This should not be an issue because after
it sets the filter, only those functions will be recorded from then on.
If you need to only record a particular function then set this
file first before starting the function graph tracer. In the future
this side effect may be corrected.

The set_graph_function file is similar to the set_ftrace_filter but
it does not take wild cards nor does it allow for more than one
function to be set with a single write. There is no technical reason why
this is the case, I just do not have the time yet to implement that.

Note, dynamic ftrace must be enabled for this to appear because it
uses the dynamic ftrace records to match the name to the mcount
call sites.

If a function is not found in the stack of the stack tracer, the
number printed is quite strange. This fixes the algorithm to handle
missing functions better.

powerpc/83xx: Fix MCU support merge issue in mpc8349emitx.dts

Just found the merge issue in 442746989d92afc125040e0f29b33602ad94da99
("powerpc/83xx: Add support for MCU microcontroller in .dts files"):
the commit adds the MCU controller node into the DMA node, which is
wrong because the MCU sits on the I2C bus. Fix this by moving the MCU
node into the I2C controller node.

The original patch[1] was OK though. ;-)

11 years agoblock: fix setting of max_segment_size and seg_boundary mask
Milan Broz [Wed, 3 Dec 2008 11:55:08 +0000]
block: fix setting of max_segment_size and seg_boundary mask

Fix setting of max_segment_size and seg_boundary mask for stacked md/dm

When stacking devices (LVM over MD over SCSI) some of the request queue
parameters are not set up correctly in some cases by default, namely
max_segment_size and and seg_boundary mask.

If you create MD device over SCSI, these attributes are zeroed.

Problem become when there is over this mapping next device-mapper mapping
- queue attributes are set in DM this way:

request_queue   max_segment_size  seg_boundary_mask
SCSI                65536             0xffffffff
MD RAID1                0                      0
LVM                 65536                 -1 (64bit)

Unfortunately bio_add_page (resp.  bio_phys_segments) calculates number of
physical segments according to these parameters.

During the generic_make_request() is segment cout recalculated and can
increase bio->bi_phys_segments count over the allowed limit.  (After
bio_clone() in stack operation.)

Thi is specially problem in CCISS driver, where it produce OOPS here

    BUG_ON(creq->nr_phys_segments > MAXSGENTRIES);

(MAXSEGENTRIES is 31 by default.)

Sometimes even this command is enough to cause oops:

  dd iflag=direct if=/dev/<vg>/<lv> of=/dev/null bs=128000 count=10

This command generates bios with 250 sectors, allocated in 32 4k-pages
(last page uses only 1024 bytes).

For LVM layer, it allocates bio with 31 segments (still OK for CCISS),
unfortunatelly on lower layer it is recalculated to 32 segments and this
violates CCISS restriction and triggers BUG_ON().

The patch tries to fix it by:

 * initializing attributes above in queue request constructor

 * make sure that blk_queue_stack_limits() inherits setting

 (DM uses its own function to set the limits because it
 blk_queue_stack_limits() was introduced later.  It should probably switch
 to use generic stack limit function too.)

 * sets the default seg_boundary value in one place (blkdev.h)

 * use this mask as default in DM (instead of -1, which differs in 64bit)

Tejun Heo [Wed, 3 Dec 2008 11:41:26 +0000]
block: internal dequeue shouldn't start timer

blkdev_dequeue_request() and elv_dequeue_request() are equivalent and
both start the timeout timer.  Barrier code dequeues the original
barrier request but doesn't passes the request itself to lower level
driver, only broken down proxy requests; however, as the original
barrier code goes through the same dequeue path and timeout timer is
started on it.  If barrier sequence takes long enough, this timer
expires but the low level driver has no idea about this request and
oops follows.

Timeout timer shouldn't have been started on the original barrier
request as it never goes through actual IO.  This patch unexports
elv_dequeue_request(), which has no external user anyway, and makes it
operate on elevator proper w/o adding the timer and make
blkdev_dequeue_request() call elv_dequeue_request() and add timer.
Internal users which don't pass the request to driver - barrier code
and end_that_request_last() - are converted to use

tracing/function-graph-tracer: improve duration output

Impact: better trace output of duration for long calls

The old duration output didn't exceeded 9999.999 us to fit the column
and the nanosecs were always 3 numbers. As Ingo suggested, it's better
to have the whole microseconds elapsed time and shift the nanosecs precision
if needed to fit the maximum 7 numbers. And usec need more number, the case
should be rare and important enough to break a bit the column alignment to
show it.

So, depending of the duration value, we now have these patterns:

    u.nnn us
   uu.nnn us
  uuu.nnn us
 uuuu.nnn us
 uuuuu.nn us

11 years agoftrace: print real return in dumpstack for function graph
Steven Rostedt [Wed, 3 Dec 2008 04:50:04 +0000]
ftrace: print real return in dumpstack for function graph

Impact: better dumpstack output

I noticed in my crash dumps and even in the stack tracer that a
lot of functions listed in the stack trace are simply
return_to_handler which is ftrace graphs way to insert its own
call into the return of a function.

But we lose out where the actually function was called from.

This patch adds in hooks to the dumpstack mechanism that detects
this and finds the real function to print. Both are printed to
let the user know that a hook is still in place.

This does give a funny side effect in the stack tracer output:

        Depth   Size      Location    (80 entries)
        -----   ----      --------
  0)     4144      48   save_stack_trace+0x2f/0x4d
  1)     4096     128   ftrace_call+0x5/0x2b
  2)     3968      16   mempool_alloc_slab+0x16/0x18
  3)     3952     384   return_to_handler+0x0/0x73
  4)     3568    -240   stack_trace_call+0x11d/0x209
  5)     3808     144   return_to_handler+0x0/0x73
  6)     3664    -128   mempool_alloc+0x4d/0xfe

  8)     3664     -32   scsi_sg_alloc+0x48/0x4a [scsi_mod]

As you can see, the real functions are now negative. This is due
to them not being found inside the stack.

ftrace: add ftrace_graph_stop()

Impact: new ftrace_graph_stop function

While developing more features of function graph, I hit a bug that
caused the WARN_ON to trigger in the prepare_ftrace_return function.
Well, it was hard for me to find out that was happening because the
bug would not print, it would just cause a hard lockup or reboot.
The reason is that it is not safe to call printk from this function.

Looking further, I also found that it calls unregister_ftrace_graph,
which grabs a mutex and calls kstop machine. This would definitely
lock the box up if it were to trigger.

This patch adds a fast and safe ftrace_graph_stop() which will
stop the function tracer. Then it is safe to call the WARN ON.

ring-buffer: read page interface

Impact: new API to ring buffer

This patch adds a new interface into the ring buffer that allows a
page to be read from the ring buffer on a given CPU. For every page
read, one must also be given to allow for a "swap" of the pages.

 rpage = ring_buffer_alloc_read_page(buffer);
 if (!rpage)
goto err;
 ret = ring_buffer_read_page(buffer, &rpage, cpu, full);
 if (!ret)
goto empty;

The caller of these functions must handle any waits that are
needed to wait for new data. The ring_buffer_read_page will simply
return 0 if there is no data, or if "full" is set and the writer
is still on the current page.

vmscan: evict streaming IO first

Count the insertion of new pages in the statistics used to drive the
pageout scanning code.  This should help the kernel quickly evict
streaming file IO.

We count on the fact that new file pages start on the inactive file LRU
and new anonymous pages start on the active anon list.  This means
streaming file IO will increment the recent scanned file statistic, while
leaving the recent rotated file statistic alone, driving pageout scanning
to the file LRUs.

Pageout activity does its own list manipulation.

bdi: register sysfs bdi device only once per queue

Devices which share the same queue, like floppies and mtd devices, get
registered multiple times in the bdi interface, but bdi accounts only the
last registered device of the devices sharing one queue.

On remove, all earlier registered devices leak, stay around in sysfs, and
cause "duplicate filename" errors if the devices are re-created.

This prevents the creation of multiple bdi interfaces per queue, and the
bdi device will carry the dev_t name of the block device which is the
first one registered, of the pool of devices using the same queue.

11 years agoamd74xx: workaround unreliable AltStatus register for nVidia controllers
Bartlomiej Zolnierkiewicz [Tue, 2 Dec 2008 19:40:03 +0000]
amd74xx: workaround unreliable AltStatus register for nVidia controllers

It seems that on some nVidia controllers using AltStatus register
can be unreliable so default to Status register if the PCI device
is in Compatibility Mode.  In order to achieve this:

* Add ide_pci_is_in_compatibility_mode() inline helper to <linux/ide.h>.

* Add IDE_HFLAG_BROKEN_ALTSTATUS host flag and set it in amd74xx host
  driver for nVidia controllers in Compatibility Mode.

* Teach actual_try_to_identify() and drive_is_ready() about the new flag.

This fixes the regression caused by removal of CONFIG_IDEPCI_SHARE_IRQ
config option in 2.6.25 and using AltStatus register unconditionally when
available (kernel.org bugs #11659 and #10216).

[ Moreover for CONFIG_IDEPCI_SHARE_IRQ=y (which is what most people
  and distributions use) it never worked correctly. ]

Thanks to Remy LABENE and Lars Winterfeld for help with debugging the problem.

tracing/function-graph-tracer: support for x86-64

Impact: extend and enable the function graph tracer to 64-bit x86

This patch implements the support for function graph tracer under x86-64.
Both static and dynamic tracing are supported.

This causes some small CPP conditional asm on arch/x86/kernel/ftrace.c I
wanted to use probe_kernel_read/write to make the return address
saving/patching code more generic but it causes tracing recursion.

That would be perhaps useful to implement a notrace version of these
function for other archs ports.

Note that arch/x86/process_64.c is not traced, as in X86-32. I first
thought __switch_to() was responsible of crashes during tracing because I
believed current task were changed inside but that's actually not the
case (actually yes, but not the "current" pointer).

So I will have to investigate to find the functions that harm here, to
enable tracing of the other functions inside (but there is no issue at
this time, while process_64.c stays out of -pg flags).

A little possible race condition is fixed inside this patch too. When the
tracer allocate a return stack dynamically, the current depth is not
initialized before but after. An interrupt could occur at this time and,
after seeing that the return stack is allocated, the tracer could try to
trace it with a random uninitialized depth. It's a prevention, even if I
hadn't problems with it.

The problems were:

1. In module removal i82875p_remove_one() is never called.

   Variable i82875p_registered is newer changed from 1, which

   As a result, the edac_mc workque is not stopped and keeps probing.
   If kernel debugging options are not enabled, user may not notice

   kobject refcount of mci drops to 0 and mci is freed.  After this
   mci is accessed via debug print and i82875p_remove_one() still
   uses mci->pvt and tries to free mci again with edac_mc_free().

   The fix for this is add kobject_get(&mci->edac_mci_kobj) after
   edac_mc_alloc(). Then the mci is still available after returning
   from edac_mc_del_mc() with refcount 1, and mci->pvt is still
   available. When i82875p_remove_one() finally calls edac_mc_free(),
   this will cause kobject_put() and mci is released properly.

11 years agoi82875p_edac: fix overflow device resource setup
Jarkko Lavinen [Mon, 1 Dec 2008 21:14:06 +0000]
i82875p_edac: fix overflow device resource setup

When I do "modprobe i82875p_edac" on my Asus P4C800 MB on kernels 2.6.26
or later, the module load fails due to BAR 0 collision.  On 2.6.25 the
module loads just fine.

The overflow device on the MB seems to be hidden and its resources are not
allocated at normal PCI bus init.  Log shows the missing resource problem:

  EDAC DEBUG: i82875p_probe1()
  PCI: 0000:00:06.0 reg 10 32bit mmio: [fecf0000, fecf0fff]
  pci 0000:00:06.0: device not available because of BAR 0
[0xfecf0000-0xfecf0fff] collisions
  EDAC i82875p: i82875p_setup_overfl_dev(): Failed to enable overflow

The patch below fixes this by calling pci_bus_assign_resources() after
the overflow device is revealed and added to the bus. With this patch
I am again able to load and use the module.

11 years agofbdev: fix FB console blanking
Dmitry Baryshkov [Mon, 1 Dec 2008 21:14:05 +0000]
fbdev: fix FB console blanking

The commit aef7db4bd5a3b6068dfa05919a3d685199eed116 fixed the problem with
recursive locking in fb blanking code if blank is caused by user setting
the /sys/class/graphics/fb*/blank.  However this broke the fbcon timeout

If you use a driver that defines ->fb_blank operation and at the same time
that driver relies on other driver (e.g.  backlight or lcd class) to blank
the screen, when the fbcon times out and tries to blank the fb, it will
call only fb driver blanker and won't notify the other driver.  Thus FB
output is disabled, but the screen isn't blanked.

Restore fbcon blanking and at the same time apply the proper fix for the
above problem: if fbcon_blank is called with FBINFO_FLAG_USEREVENT, we are
already called through notification from fb_blank, thus we don't have to
blank the fb again.

kernel-doc: handle varargs cleanly

The method for listing varargs in kernel-doc notation is:

but scripts/kernel-doc is confused:  it always lists varargs as:
... variable arguments
and ignores the @...: line's description, but then prints that
line after the list of function parameters as though it's
not part of the function parameters.

This patch makes kernel-doc print the supplied @...  description if it is
present; otherwise a boilerplate "variable arguments" is printed.

11 years agoepoll: introduce resource usage limits
Davide Libenzi [Mon, 1 Dec 2008 21:13:55 +0000]
epoll: introduce resource usage limits

It has been thought that the per-user file descriptors limit would also
limit the resources that a normal user can request via the epoll
interface.  Vegard Nossum reported a very simple program (a modified
version attached) that can make a normal user to request a pretty large
amount of kernel memory, well within the its maximum number of fds.  To
solve such problem, default limits are now imposed, and /proc based
configuration has been introduced.  A new directory has been created,
named /proc/sys/fs/epoll/ and inside there, there are two configuration

  max_user_instances = Maximum number of devices - per user

  max_user_watches   = Maximum number of "watched" fds - per user

The current default for "max_user_watches" limits the memory used by epoll
to store "watches", to 1/32 of the amount of the low RAM.  As example, a
256MB 32bit machine, will have "max_user_watches" set to roughly 90000.
That should be enough to not break existing heavy epoll users.  The
default value for "max_user_instances" is set to 128, that should be
enough too.

This also changes the userspace, because a new error code can now come out
from EPOLL_CTL_ADD (-ENOSPC).  The EMFILE from epoll_create() was already
listed, so that should be ok.
