10 years agorcu: Add a TINY_PREEMPT_RCU
Paul E. McKenney [Tue, 29 Jun 2010 23:49:16 +0000]

Implement a small-memory-footprint uniprocessor-only implementation of
preemptible RCU.  This implementation uses but a single blocked-tasks
list rather than the combinatorial number used per leaf rcu_node by
TREE_PREEMPT_RCU, which reduces memory consumption and greatly simplifies
processing.  This version also takes advantage of uniprocessor execution
to accelerate grace periods in the case where there are no readers.

The general design is otherwise broadly similar to that of TREE_PREEMPT_RCU.

This implementation is a step towards having RCU implementation driven
off of the SMP and PREEMPT kernel configuration variables, which can
happen once this implementation has accumulated sufficient experience.

Removed ACCESS_ONCE() from __rcu_read_unlock() and added barrier() as
suggested by Steve Rostedt in order to avoid the compiler-reordering
issue noted by Mathieu Desnoyers (http://lkml.org/lkml/2010/8/16/183).

As can be seen below, CONFIG_TINY_PREEMPT_RCU represents almost 5Kbyte
savings compared to CONFIG_TREE_PREEMPT_RCU.  Of course, for non-real-time
workloads, CONFIG_TINY_RCU is even better.

10 years agorcu: Fix RCU_FANOUT help message
Paul E. McKenney [Thu, 5 Aug 2010 00:31:12 +0000]
rcu: Fix RCU_FANOUT help message

Commit cf244dc01bf68 added a fourth level to the TREE_RCU hierarchy,
but the RCU_FANOUT help message still said "cube root".  This commit
fixes this to "fourth root" and also emphasizes that production
systems are well-served by the default.  (Stress-testing RCU itself
uses small RCU_FANOUT values in order to test large-system code paths
on small(er) systems.)

10 years agorcu: Allow RCU CPU stall warnings to be off at boot, but manually enablable
Paul E. McKenney [Wed, 21 Jul 2010 15:05:56 +0000]
rcu: Allow RCU CPU stall warnings to be off at boot, but manually enablable

Currently, if RCU CPU stall warnings are enabled, they are enabled
immediately upon boot.  They can be manually disabled via /sys (and
also re-enabled via /sys), and are automatically disabled upon panic.
However, some users need RCU CPU stalls to be disabled at boot time,
but to be enabled without rebuilding/rebooting.  For example, someone
running a real-time application in production might not want the
additional latency of RCU CPU stall detection in normal operation, but
might need to enable it at any point for fault isolation purposes.

This commit therefore provides a new CONFIG_RCU_CPU_STALL_DETECTOR_RUNNABLE
kernel configuration parameter that maintains the current behavior
(enable at boot) by default, but allows a kernel to be configured
with RCU CPU stall detection built into the kernel, but disabled at
boot time.

10 years agorcu: restrict TREE_RCU to SMP builds with !PREEMPT
Paul E. McKenney [Wed, 21 Jul 2010 13:52:40 +0000]
rcu: restrict TREE_RCU to SMP builds with !PREEMPT

Because both TINY_RCU and TREE_PREEMPT_RCU have been in mainline for
several releases, it is time to restrict the use of TREE_RCU to SMP
non-preemptible systems.  This reduces testing/validation effort.  This
commit is a first step towards driving the selection of RCU implementation
directly off of the SMP and PREEMPT configuration parameters.

rcu: add boot parameter to suppress RCU CPU stall warning messages

Although the RCU CPU stall warning messages are a very good way to alert
people to a problem, once alerted, it is sometimes helpful to shut them
off in order to avoid obscuring other messages that might be being used

CONFIG_RCU_CPU_STALL_DETECTOR=n, this is sometimes inconvenient.  This
commit therefore adds a boot parameter named "rcu_cpu_stall_suppress"
that shuts these messages off without requiring a rebuild (though a
reboot might be needed for those not brave enough to patch their kernel
while it is running).

10 years agorcu: define __rcu address space modifier for sparse
Paul E. McKenney [Wed, 28 Apr 2010 21:39:09 +0000]
rcu: define __rcu address space modifier for sparse

This commit provides definitions for the __rcu annotation defined earlier.
This annotation permits sparse to check for correct use of RCU-protected
pointers.  If a pointer that is annotated with __rcu is accessed
directly (as opposed to via rcu_dereference(), rcu_assign_pointer(),
or one of their variants), sparse can be made to complain.  To enable
such complaints, use the new default-disabled CONFIG_SPARSE_RCU_POINTER
kernel configuration option.  Please note that these sparse complaints are
intended to be a debugging aid, -not- a code-style-enforcement mechanism.

There are special rcu_dereference_protected() and rcu_access_pointer()
accessors for use when RCU read-side protection is not required, for
example, when no other CPU has access to the data structure in question
or while the current CPU hold the update-side lock.

This patch also updates a number of docbook comments that were showing
their age.

ALSA: emu10k1 - delay the PCM interrupts (add pcm_irq_delay parameter)

With some hardware combinations, the PCM interrupts are acknowledged
before the period boundary from the emu10k1 chip. The midlevel PCM code
gets confused and the playback stream is interrupted.

It seems that the interrupt processing shift by 2 samples is enough
to fix this issue. This default value does not harm other,
non-affected hardware.

10 years agofs: brlock vfsmount_lock
Nick Piggin [Tue, 17 Aug 2010 18:37:39 +0000]
fs: brlock vfsmount_lock

fs: brlock vfsmount_lock

Use a brlock for the vfsmount lock. It must be taken for write whenever
modifying the mount hash or associated fields, and may be taken for read when
performing mount hash lookups.

A new lock is added for the mnt-id allocator, so it doesn't need to take
the heavy vfsmount write-lock.

The number of atomics should remain the same for fastpath rlock cases, though
code would be slightly slower due to per-cpu access. Scalability is not not be
much improved in common cases yet, due to other locks (ie. dcache_lock) getting
in the way. However path lookups crossing mountpoints should be one case where
scalability is improved (currently requiring the global lock).

The slowpath is slower due to use of brlock. On a 64 core, 64 socket, 32 node
Altix system (high latency to remote nodes), a simple umount microbenchmark
(mount --bind mnt mnt2 ; umount mnt2 loop 1000 times), before this patch it
took 6.8s, afterwards took 7.1s, about 5% slower.

10 years agofs: scale files_lock
Nick Piggin [Tue, 17 Aug 2010 18:37:38 +0000]
fs: scale files_lock

fs: scale files_lock

Improve scalability of files_lock by adding per-cpu, per-sb files lists,
protected with an lglock. The lglock provides fast access to the per-cpu lists
to add and remove files. It also provides a snapshot of all the per-cpu lists
(although this is very slow).

One difficulty with this approach is that a file can be removed from the list
by another CPU. We must track which per-cpu list the file is on with a new
variale in the file struct (packed into a hole on 64-bit archs). Scalability
could suffer if files are frequently removed from different cpu's list.

However loads with frequent removal of files imply short interval between
adding and removing the files, and the scheduler attempts to avoid moving
processes too far away. Also, even in the case of cross-CPU removal, the
hardware has much more opportunity to parallelise cacheline transfers with N
cachelines than with 1.

A worst-case test of 1 CPU allocating files subsequently being freed by N CPUs
degenerates to contending on a single lock, which is no worse than before. When
more than one CPU are allocating files, even if they are always freed by
different CPUs, there will be more parallelism than the single-lock case.

Testing results:

On a 2 socket, 8 core opteron, I measure the number of times the lock is taken
to remove the file, the number of times it is removed by the same CPU that
added it, and the number of times it is removed by the same node that added it.

Booting:    locks=  25049 cpu-hits=  23174 (92.5%) node-hits=  23945 (95.6%)
kbuild -j16 locks=2281913 cpu-hits=2208126 (96.8%) node-hits=2252674 (98.7%)
dbench 64   locks=4306582 cpu-hits=4287247 (99.6%) node-hits=4299527 (99.8%)

So a file is removed from the same CPU it was added by over 90% of the time.
It remains within the same node 95% of the time.

lglock: introduce special lglock and brlock spin locks

This patch introduces "local-global" locks (lglocks). These can be used to:

- Provide fast exclusive access to per-CPU data, with exclusive access to
  another CPU's data allowed but possibly subject to contention, and to provide
  very slow exclusive access to all per-CPU data.
- Or to provide very fast and scalable read serialisation, and to provide
  very slow exclusive serialisation of data (not necessarily per-CPU data).

Brlocks are also implemented as a short-hand notation for the latter use

Thanks to Paul for local/global naming convention.

10 years agotty: fix fu_list abuse
Nick Piggin [Tue, 17 Aug 2010 18:37:36 +0000]
tty: fix fu_list abuse

tty: fix fu_list abuse

tty code abuses fu_list, which causes a bug in remount,ro handling.

If a tty device node is opened on a filesystem, then the last link to the inode
removed, the filesystem will be allowed to be remounted readonly. This is
because fs_may_remount_ro does not find the 0 link tty inode on the file sb
list (because the tty code incorrectly removed it to use for its own purpose).
This can result in a filesystem with errors after it is marked "clean".

Taking idea from Christoph's initial patch, allocate a tty private struct
at file->private_data and put our required list fields in there, linking
file and tty. This makes tty nodes behave the same way as other device nodes
and avoid meddling with the vfs, and avoids this bug.

The error handling is not trivial in the tty code, so for this bugfix, I take
the simple approach of using __GFP_NOFAIL and don't worry about memory errors.
This is not a problem because our allocator doesn't fail small allocs as a rule
anyway. So proper error handling is left as an exercise for tty hackers.

[ Arguably filesystem's device inode would ideally be divorced from the
driver's pseudo inode when it is opened, but in practice it's not clear whether
that will ever be worth implementing. ]

10 years agofs: remove extra lookup in __lookup_hash

fs: remove extra lookup in __lookup_hash

fs: remove extra lookup in __lookup_hash

Optimize lookup for create operations, where no dentry should often be
common-case. In cases where it is not, such as unlink, the added overhead
is much smaller than the removed.

Also, move comments about __d_lookup racyness to the __d_lookup call site.
d_lookup is intuitive; __d_lookup is what needs commenting. So in that same
vein, add kerneldoc comments to __d_lookup and clean up some of the comments:

- We are interested in how the RCU lookup works here, particularly with
  renames. Make that explicit, and point to the document where it is explained
  in more detail.
- RCU is pretty standard now, and macros make implementations pretty mindless.
  If we want to know about RCU barrier details, we look in RCU code.
- Delete some boring legacy comments because we don't care much about how the
  code used to work, more about the interesting parts of how it works now. So
  comments about lazy LRU may be interesting, but would better be done in the
  LRU or refcount management code.

10 years agofs: fs_struct rwlock to spinlock
Nick Piggin [Tue, 17 Aug 2010 18:37:33 +0000]
fs: fs_struct rwlock to spinlock

fs: fs_struct rwlock to spinlock

struct fs_struct.lock is an rwlock with the read-side used to protect root and
pwd members while taking references to them. Taking a reference to a path
typically requires just 2 atomic ops, so the critical section is very small.
Parallel read-side operations would have cacheline contention on the lock, the
dentry, and the vfsmount cachelines, so the rwlock is unlikely to ever give a
real parallelism increase.

Replace it with a spinlock to avoid one or two atomic operations in typical
path lookup fastpath.

Nick Piggin [Tue, 17 Aug 2010 18:37:30 +0000]
fs: fix do_lookup false negative

fs: fix do_lookup false negative

In do_lookup, if we initially find no dentry, we take the directory i_mutex and
re-check the lookup. If we find a dentry there, then we revalidate it if
needed. However if that revalidate asks for the dentry to be invalidated, we
return -ENOENT from do_lookup. What should happen instead is an attempt to
allocate and lookup a new dentry.

This is probably not noticed because it is rare. It is only reached if a
concurrent create races in first (in which case, the dentry probably won't be
invalidated anyway), or if the racy __d_lookup has failed due to a
false-negative (which is very rare).

Fix this by removing code and have it use the normal reval path.

Update recovery_offset even when external metadata is used.

The update of ->recovery_offset in sync_sbs is appropriate even then external
metadata is in use.  However sync_sbs is only called when native
metadata is used.

So move that update in to the top of md_update_sb (which is the only
caller of sync_sbs) before the test on ->external.

This moves the update out of ->write_lock protection, but those fields
only need ->reconfig_mutex protection which they still have.

Also move the test on ->persistent up to where ->external is set as
for metadata update purposes they are the same.

Clear MD_CHANGE_DEVS and MD_CHANGE_CLEAN as they can only be confusing
if ->external is set or ->persistent isn't.

Finally move the update of ->utime down as it is only relevent (like

10 years agoFix unprotected access to task credentials in waitid()
Daniel J Blueman [Tue, 17 Aug 2010 22:56:55 +0000]
Fix unprotected access to task credentials in waitid()

Using a program like the following:

#include <stdlib.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <sys/wait.h>

int main() {
id_t id;
siginfo_t infop;
pid_t res;

id = fork();
if (id == 0) { sleep(1); exit(0); }
kill(id, SIGSTOP);
waitid(P_PID, id, &infop, WCONTINUED);
return 0;

to call waitid() on a stopped process results in access to the child task's
credentials without the RCU read lock being held - which may be replaced in the
meantime - eliciting the following warning:

[ INFO: suspicious rcu_dereference_check() usage. ]
kernel/exit.c:1460 invoked rcu_dereference_check() without protection!

other info that might help us debug this:

rcu_scheduler_active = 1, debug_locks = 1
2 locks held by waitid02/22252:
 #0:  (tasklist_lock){.?.?..}, at: [<ffffffff81061ce5>] do_wait+0xc5/0x310
 #1:  (&(&sighand->siglock)->rlock){-.-...}, at: [<ffffffff810611da>]

stack backtrace:
Pid: 22252, comm: waitid02 Not tainted 2.6.35-323cd+ #3
Call Trace:
 [<ffffffff81095da4>] lockdep_rcu_dereference+0xa4/0xc0

 [<ffffffff8105fce0>] ? child_wait_callback+0x0/0x70
 [<ffffffff81003282>] system_call_fastpath+0x16/0x1b

This is fixed by holding the RCU read lock in wait_task_continued() to ensure
that the task's current credentials aren't destroyed between us reading the
cred pointer and us reading the UID from those credentials.

Furthermore, protect wait_task_stopped() in the same way.

We don't need to keep holding the RCU read lock once we've read the UID from
the credentials as holding the RCU read lock doesn't stop the target task from
changing its creds under us - so the credentials may be outdated immediately
after we've read the pointer, lock or no lock.

10 years agoMake do_execve() take a const filename pointer
David Howells [Tue, 17 Aug 2010 22:52:56 +0000]
Make do_execve() take a const filename pointer

Make do_execve() take a const filename pointer so that kernel_execve() compiles
correctly on ARM:

arch/arm/kernel/sys_arm.c:88: warning: passing argument 1 of 'do_execve' discards qualifiers from pointer target type

This also requires the argv and envp arguments to be consted twice, once for
the pointer array and once for the strings the array points to.  This is
because do_execve() passes a pointer to the filename (now const) to
copy_strings_kernel().  A simpler alternative would be to cast the filename
pointer in do_execve() when it's passed to copy_strings_kernel().

do_execve() may not change any of the strings it is passed as part of the argv
or envp lists as they are some of them in .rodata, so marking these strings as
const should be fine.

Further kernel_execve() and sys_execve() need to be changed to match.

This has been test built on x86_64, frv, arm and mips.

As noticed by Linus, it is critical that some of the
rwsem constants be signed.  Yet, hex constants are
unsigned unless explicitly casted or negated.

The most critical one is RWSEM_WAITING_BIAS.
