perf_counter: Improve perf stat and perf record option parsing

perf stat and perf record currently look for all options on the command
line. This can lead to some confusion:

# perf stat ls -l
  Error: unknown switch `l'

While we can work around this by adding '--' before the command, the git
option parsing code can stop at the first non option:

# perf stat ls -l

10 years agoperf_counter: PERF_SAMPLE_ID and inherited counters
Peter Zijlstra [Tue, 21 Jul 2009 11:19:40 +0000]
perf_counter: PERF_SAMPLE_ID and inherited counters

Anton noted that for inherited counters the counter-id as provided by
PERF_SAMPLE_ID isn't mappable to the id found through PERF_RECORD_ID
because each inherited counter gets its own id.

His suggestion was to always return the parent counter id, since that
is the primary counter id as exposed. However, these inherited
counters have a unique identifier so that events like
PERF_EVENT_PERIOD and PERF_EVENT_THROTTLE can be specific about which
counter gets modified, which is important when trying to normalize the
sample streams.

This patch removes PERF_EVENT_PERIOD in favour of PERF_SAMPLE_PERIOD,
which is more useful anyway, since changing periods became a lot more
common than initially thought -- rendering PERF_EVENT_PERIOD the less
useful solution (also, PERF_SAMPLE_PERIOD reports the more accurate
value, since it reports the value used to trigger the overflow,
whereas PERF_EVENT_PERIOD simply reports the requested period changed,
which might only take effect on the next cycle).

This still leaves us PERF_EVENT_THROTTLE to consider, but since that
_should_ be a rare occurrence, and linking it to a primary id is the
most useful bit to diagnose the problem, we introduce a
PERF_SAMPLE_STREAM_ID, for those few cases where the full
reconstruction is important.

[Does change the ABI a little, but I see no other way out]

10 years agoperf_counter: Make sure we dont leak kernel memory to userspace
Anton Blanchard [Thu, 16 Jul 2009 13:15:52 +0000]
perf_counter: Make sure we dont leak kernel memory to userspace

There are a few places we are leaking tiny amounts of kernel
memory to userspace. This happens when writing out strings
because we always align the end to 64 bits.

To avoid this we should always use an appropriately sized
temporary buffer and ensure it is zeroed.

Since d_path assembles the string from the end of the buffer
backwards, we need to add 64 bits after the buffer to allow for
alignment.

We also need to copy arch_vma_name to the temporary buffer,
because if we use it directly we may end up copying to
userspace a number of bytes after the end of the string
constant.

perf_counter, x86: Extend perf_counter Pentium M support

I've attached a patch to remove the Pentium M special casing of
EMON and as noticed at least with my Pentium M the hardware PMU
now works:

 Performance counter stats for '/bin/ls /var/tmp':

       1.809988  task-clock-msecs         #      0.125 CPUs
              1  context-switches         #      0.001 M/sec
              0  CPU-migrations           #  0.000 M/sec
            224  page-faults              #  0.124 M/sec
        1425648  cycles                   #    787.656 M/sec
         912755  instructions             #  0.640 IPC

Vince suggested that this code was trying to address erratum
Y17 in Pentium-M's:

  http://download.intel.com/support/processors/mobile/pm/sb/25266532.pdf

But that erratum (related to IA32_MISC_ENABLES.7) does not
affect perfcounters as we dont use this toggle to disable RDPMC
and WRMSR/RDMSR access to performance counters. We keep cr4's
bit 8 (X86_CR4_PCE) clear so unprivileged RDPMC access is not
allowed anyway.

perf_counter: Add P6 PMU support

Add basic P6 PMU support. The P6 uses the EVNTSEL0 EN bit to
enable/disable both its counters. We use this for the
global enable/disable, and clear all config bits (except EN)
to disable individual counters.

Actual ia32 hardware doesn't support lfence, so use a locked
op without side-effect to implement a full barrier.

perf stat and perf record seem to function correctly.

10 years agoperf report: Add "Fractal" mode output - support callchains with relative overhead...
Frederic Weisbecker [Sun, 5 Jul 2009 05:39:21 +0000]
perf report: Add "Fractal" mode output - support callchains with relative overhead rate

The current callchain displays the overhead rates as absolute:
relative to the total overhead.

This patch provides relative overhead percentage, in which each
branch of the callchain tree is a independant instrumentated object.

This provides a 'fractal' view of the call-chain profile: each
sub-graph looks like a profile in itself - relative to its parent.

You can produce such output by using the "fractal" mode
that you can abbreviate via f, fr, fra, frac, etc...

./perf report -s sym -c fractal

Example:

     8.46%  [k] copy_user_generic_string
                |
                |--52.01%-- generic_file_aio_read
                |          do_sync_read

10 years agoperf_counter tools: callchains: Manage the cumul hits on the fly
Frederic Weisbecker [Sun, 5 Jul 2009 05:39:20 +0000]
perf_counter tools: callchains: Manage the cumul hits on the fly

The cumul hits are the number of hits of every childs of a node
plus the hits of the current nodes, required for percentage
computing of a branch.

Theses numbers are calculated during the sorting of the branches of
the callchain tree using a depth first postfix traversal, so that
cumulative hits are propagated in the right order.

But if we plan to implement percentages relative to the parent and not
absolute percentages (relative to the whole overhead), we need to know
the cumulative hits of the parent before computing the children
because the relative minimum acceptable number of entries (ie: minimum
rate against the cumulative hits from the parent) is the basis to
filter the children against a given rate.

Then we need to handle the cumul hits on the fly to prepare the
implementation of relative overhead rates.

perf report: Change default callchain parameters

The default callchain parameters are set to use the flat mode and never
filter any overhead threshold of backtrace.

But flat mode is boring compared to graph mode.
Also the number of callchains may be very high if none is
filtered.

Let's change this to set the graph view and a minimum overhead of 0.5%
as default parameters.

x86: atomic64: Code atomic(64)_read and atomic(64)_set in C not CPP

Occasionally we get bugs where atomic_read or atomic_set are
used on atomic64_t variables or vice versa.  These bugs don't
generate warnings on x86 because atomic_read and atomic_set are
coded as macros rather than C functions, so we don't get any
type-checking on their arguments; similarly for atomic64_read
and atomic64_set in 64-bit kernels.

This converts them to C functions so that the arguments are
type-checked and bugs like this will get caught more easily. It
also converts atomic_cmpxchg and atomic_xchg, and
atomic64_cmpxchg and atomic64_xchg on 64-bit, so we get
type-checking on their arguments too.

Compiling a typical 64-bit x86 config, this generates no new
warnings, and the vmlinux text is 86 bytes smaller.

probably be better off not trying an atomic_read() in
atomic64_add_return() but intead intentionally let the first
cmpxchg8b fail - to get a cache-friendly 'give me ownership
of this cacheline' transaction. That can then be followed
by the real cmpxchg8b which sets the value local to the CPU.

Eric Dumazet [Fri, 3 Jul 2009 10:14:27 +0000]
x86: atomic64: Improve atomic64_read()

Linus noticed that the 32-bit version of atomic64_read() was
being overly complex with re-reading the value and doing a
retry loop over that.

Instead we can just rely on cmpxchg8b returning either the new
value or returning the current value.

We can use any 'old' value, which will be faster as it can be
loaded via immediates. Using some value that is not equal to
the real value in memory the instruction gets faster.

This also has the advantage that the CPU could avoid dirtying
the cacheline.

x86: atomic64: Move the 32-bit atomic64_t implementation to a .c file

Linus noted that the atomic64_t primitives are all inlines
currently which is crazy because these functions have a large
register footprint anyway.

Move them to a separate file: arch/x86/lib/atomic64_32.c

Also, while at it, rename all uses of 'unsigned long long' to
the much shorter u64.

This makes the appearance of the prototypes a lot nicer - and
it also uncovered a few bugs where (yet unused) API variants
had 'long' as their return type instead of u64.

[ More intrusive changes are not yet done in this patch. ]

10 years agoperf report: Add support for callchain graph output
Frederic Weisbecker [Thu, 2 Jul 2009 15:58:21 +0000]
perf report: Add support for callchain graph output

Currently, the printing of callchains is done in a single
vertical level, this is the "flat" mode:

8.25%  [k] copy_user_generic_string
             4.19%
                copy_user_generic_string
                generic_file_aio_read
                do_sync_read
                vfs_read
                sys_pread64
                system_call_fastpath
                pread64

This patch introduces a new "graph" mode which provides a
hierarchical output of factorized paths recursively sorted:

 8.25%  [k] copy_user_generic_string
                |
                |--4.31%-- generic_file_aio_read
                |          do_sync_read
                |          vfs_read
                |          |
                |          |--4.19%-- sys_pread64
                |          |          system_call_fastpath
                |          |          pread64
                |          |
                |           --0.12%-- sys_read
                |                     system_call_fastpath
                |                     __read
                |
                |--3.24%-- generic_file_buffered_write
                |          __generic_file_aio_write_nolock
                |          generic_file_aio_write
                |          do_sync_write
                |          reiserfs_file_write
                |          vfs_write
                |          |
                |          |--3.14%-- sys_pwrite64
                |          |          system_call_fastpath
                |          |          __pwrite64
                |          |
                |           --0.10%-- sys_write
[...]

The command line has then changed.

By providing the -c option, the callchain will output in the
flat mode by default.

But you can override it:

    perf report -c graph

or

    perf report -c flat

You can also pass the abreviated mode:

    perf report -c g

or

    perf report -c gra

will both make use of the graph mode.

10 years agoperf_counter tools: Add new OPT_CALLBACK_DEFAULT option
Frederic Weisbecker [Thu, 2 Jul 2009 15:58:20 +0000]
perf_counter tools: Add new OPT_CALLBACK_DEFAULT option

There is no predefined macro to create an option that can have
a custom value or a default one if none is given.

This patch provides a new helper OPT_CALLBACK_DEFAULT() which
defines such kind of option.

For example, considering an option -c, we want to get the
default value in the following cases:

    perf command -c -d
    perf command -d -c

And the foo value when it's given:

    perf command -c foo -d
    perf command -d -c foo

That's also why PARSE_OPT_LASTARG_DEFAULT is extended here to
support default values whatever the position of the option, not
only in the end.

Should it now be renamed to PARSE_OPT_ARG_DEFAULT ?

10 years agoperf_counter tools: Create new chain_for_each_child() iterator
Frederic Weisbecker [Thu, 2 Jul 2009 15:58:19 +0000]
perf_counter tools: Create new chain_for_each_child() iterator

Iterating through children of a node in the callchain tree
shows something that may be quite confusing at a first glance.
The head is the children field of the parent and the list nodes
are in the brothers field of the children.

This is because the childs are linked to the parent as a list
of "brothers" using the "children" list of the parent as a
head:

  ---------------
 | Parent (head) |-------------------------------------
  ---------------                                      |
     |                                                 |
  children                                             |
     |                                                 |
  -----------               -----------                |
 | 1st child |---brother---| 2nd child |---brother-----
  -----------               -----------

This makes the following strange pattern often occuring:

 list_for_each_entry(child, &parent->children, brothers) {
        // do something with children
 }

Abstract it to chain_for_each_child() to factorize and simplify
this pattern.

perf_counter: Ignore the nmi call frames in the x86-64 backtraces

About every callchains recorded with perf record are filled up
including the internal perfcounter nmi frame:

 intel_pmu_handle_irq
 perf_counter_nmi_handler
 notifier_call_chain
 atomic_notifier_call_chain
 notify_die
 do_nmi
 nmi

We want ignore this frame as it's not interesting for
instrumentation. To solve this, we simply ignore every frames
from nmi context.

New example of "perf report -s sym -c" after this patch:

perf_counter tools: Share list.h with the kernel

The copy we were using came from another copy I did for the dwarves
(pahole) package, that came from the kernel years ago.

The only function that is used by the perf tools and that isn't in the
kernel is list_del_range, that I'm leaving in the perf tools only for

perf_counter tools: Share rbtree.with the kernel

The tools/perf/util/rbtree.c copy already drifted by three
csets:

 4b324126e0c6c3a5080ca3ec0981e8766ed6f1ee

 16c047add3ceaf0ab882e3e094d1ec904d02312d

So remove the copy and use the lib/rbtree.c directly, sharing
the source code while still generating a separate object file,
since tools/perf uses a far more agressive -O6 switch.

10 years agoperf_counter tools: Rework event string parsing/syntax
Paul Mackerras [Wed, 1 Jul 2009 03:04:34 +0000]
perf_counter tools: Rework event string parsing/syntax

This reworks the parser for event descriptors to make it more
consistent in what it accepts.  It is now structured as a
recursive descent parser for the following grammar:

events ::= event ( ("," | space) space* event )*
event ::= ( raw_event | numeric_event | symbolic_event |
      generic_hw_event ) [ event_modifier ]
raw_event ::= "r" hex_number
numeric_event ::= number ":" number
number ::= decimal_number | "0x" hex_number | "0" octal_number
symbolic_event ::= string_from_event_symbols_array
generic_hw_event::= cache_type ( "-" ( cache_op | cache_result ) )*
event_modifier ::= ":" ( "u" | "k" | "h" )+

with the extra restriction that you can have at most one
cache_op and at most one cache_result.

We pass the current string pointer by reference (i.e. as a
const char **) to the various parsing functions so that they
can advance the pointer to indicate how much they consumed.
They return 0 if they didn't recognize the thing at the pointer
or 1 if they did (and advance the pointer past it).

This also fixes parse_aliases to take the longest matching
alias from the table, not the first one.  Otherwise "l1-data"
would match the "l1-d" alias and the "ata" would not be
consumed.

This allows event modifiers indicating what processor modes to
count in to be applied to any event, not just numeric events,
and adds a ":h" modifier to indicate counting in hypervisor
mode.  Specifying ":u" now sets both exclude_kernel and
exclude_hv, and so on.  Multiple modes can be specified, e.g.
":uk" will count in user or hypervisor mode (i.e. only
exclude_kernel will be set).

Frederic Weisbecker [Wed, 1 Jul 2009 03:35:15 +0000]
perf_counter tools: Various fixes for callchains

The symbol resolving has of course revealed some bugs in the
callchain tree handling. This patch fixes some of them,
including:

- inherit the children from the parents while splitting a node
- fix list range moving
- fix indexes setting in callchains
- create a child on the current node if the path doesn't match in
  the existent children (was only done on the root)
- compare using symbols when possible so that we can match a function
  using any ip inside by referring to its start address.

The practical effects are:

- remove double callchains
- fix upside down or any random order of callchains
- fix wrong paths
- fix bad hits and percentage accounts

10 years agomm: prevent balance_dirty_pages() from doing too much work
Richard Kennedy [Tue, 30 Jun 2009 18:41:35 +0000]
mm: prevent balance_dirty_pages() from doing too much work

balance_dirty_pages can overreact and move all of the dirty pages to
writeback unnecessarily.

balance_dirty_pages makes its decision to throttle based on the number of
dirty plus writeback pages that are over the calculated limit,so it will
continue to move pages even when there are plenty of pages in writeback
and less than the threshold still dirty.

This allows it to overshoot its limits and move all the dirty pages to
writeback while waiting for the drives to catch up and empty the writeback
list.

A simple fio test easily demonstrates this problem.

fio --name=f1 --directory=/disk1 --size=2G -rw=write --name=f2 --directory=/disk2 --size=1G --rw=write --startdelay=10

This is the simplest fix I could find, but I'm not entirely sure that it
alone will be enough for all cases.  But it certainly is an improvement on
my desktop machine writing to 2 disks.

Do we need something more for machines with large arrays where
bdi_threshold * number_of_drives is greater than the dirty_ratio ?

spi: bitbang bugfix in message setup

Bugfix to spi_bitbang infrastructure: make sure to always set transfer
parameters on the first pass through the message's per-transfer loop.
This can matter with drivers that replace the per-word or per-buffer
transfer primitives, on busses with multiple SPI devices.

Previously, this could have started messages using the settings left after
previous messages.  The problem was observed when a high speed chip
(m25p80 type flash) was running very slowly because a low speed device
(avr8 microcontroller) had previously used the bus.  Similar faults could
have driven the low speed device too fast, or used an unexpected word
size.

Add a mutex to avoid a circular locking problem between the mm layer
semaphore and fbdev ioctl mutex through the fb_mmap() call.

Also, add mutex to all places where smem_start and smem_len fields change
so the mutex inside the fb_mmap() is actually used.  Changing of these
fields before calling the framebuffer_register() are not mutexed.

This is 2.6.31 material.  It removes one lockdep (fb_mmap() and
register_framebuffer()) but there is still another one (fb_release() and
register_framebuffer()).  It also cleans up handling of the smem_start and
smem_len fields used by mutexed section of the fb_mmap().

Include that constraint in the OMAP1 MicroWire controller driver.

Have the mmc_spi host be the first customer of this flag.  Its coding
relies heavily on full duplex transfers, so it must fail when the
underlying controller driver won't perform them.

(The spi_write_then_read routine could use it too: use the
temporarily-withdrawn full-duplex speedup unless this flag is set, in
which case the existing code applies.  Similarly, any spi_master

David Brownell [Tue, 30 Jun 2009 18:41:26 +0000]
spi: new spi->mode bits

Add two new spi_device.mode bits to accomodate more protocol options, and
pass them through to usermode drivers:

 * SPI_NO_CS ... a second 3-wire variant, where the chipselect
   line is removed instead of a data line; transfers are still
   full duplex.

   This obviously has STRONG protocol implications since the
   chipselect transitions can't be used to synchronize state
   transitions with the SPI master.

 * SPI_READY ... defines open drain signal that's pulled low
   to pause the clock.  This defines a 5-wire variant (normal
   4-wire SPI plus READY) and two 4-wire variants (READY plus
   each of the 3-wire flavors).

   Such hardware flow control can be a big win.  There are ADC
   converters and flash chips that expose READY signals, but not
   many host controllers support it today.

The spi_bitbang code should be changed to use SPI_NO_CS instead of its
current nonportable hack.  That's a mode most hardware can easily support
(unlike SPI_READY).

10 years agoext2: return -EIO not -ESTALE on directory traversal through deleted inode
Bryan Donlan [Tue, 30 Jun 2009 18:41:24 +0000]
ext2: return -EIO not -ESTALE on directory traversal through deleted inode

ext2_iget() returns -ESTALE if invoked on a deleted inode, in order to
report errors to NFS properly.  However, in ext[234]_lookup(), this
-ESTALE can be propagated to userspace if the filesystem is corrupted such
that a directory entry references a deleted inode.  This leads to a
misleading error message - "Stale NFS file handle" - and confusion on the
part of the admin.

The bug can be easily reproduced by creating a new filesystem, making a
link to an unused inode using debugfs, then mounting and attempting to ls
-l said link.

This patch thus changes ext2_lookup to return -EIO if it receives -ESTALE
from ext2_iget(), as ext2 does for other filesystem metadata corruption;
and also invokes the appropriate ext*_error functions when this case is
detected.

elf: limit max map count to safe value

With ELF, at generating coredump, some more headers other than used
vmas are added.

When max_map_count == 65536, a core generated by following kinds of
code can be unreadable because the number of ELF's program header is
written in 16bit in Ehdr (please see elf.h) and the number overflows.

==
... = mmap(); (munmap, mprotect, etc...)
if (failed)
abort();
==

This can happen in mmap/munmap/mprotect/etc...which calls split_vma().

I think 65536 is not safe as _default_ and reduce it to 65530 is good
for avoiding unexpected corrupted core.

Anyway, max_map_count can be enlarged by sysctl if a user is brave..

gcov: fix documentation

Commonly available versions of cp and tar don't work well with special
files created using seq_file.  Mention this problem in the gcov
documentation and update the helper script example to work around these
problems.

10 years agoalpha: fix percpu build breakage
Tejun Heo [Tue, 30 Jun 2009 18:41:18 +0000]
alpha: fix percpu build breakage

alpha percpu access requires custom SHIFT_PERCPU_PTR() definition for
modules to work around addressing range limitation.  This is done via
generating inline assembly using C preprocessing which forces the
assembler to generate external reference.  This happens behind the
compiler's back and makes the compiler think that static percpu variables
in modules are unused.

This used to be worked around by using __unused attribute for percpu
variables which prevent the compiler from omitting the variable; however,
recent declare/definition attribute unification change broke this as
__used can't be used for declaration.  Also, in the process,
PER_CPU_ATTRIBUTES definition in alpha percpu.h got broken.

This patch adds PER_CPU_DEF_ATTRIBUTES which is only used for definitions
and make alpha use it to add __used for percpu variables in modules.  This
also fixes the PER_CPU_ATTRIBUTES double definition bug.
