11 years agoIPC: consolidate all xxxctl_down() functions
Pierre Peiffer [Tue, 29 Apr 2008 08:00:54 +0000]
IPC: consolidate all xxxctl_down() functions

semctl_down(), msgctl_down() and shmctl_down() are used to handle the same set
of commands for each kind of IPC.  They all start to do the same job (they
retrieve the ipc and do some permission checks) before handling the commands
on their own.

This patch proposes to consolidate this by moving these same pieces of code
into one common function called ipcctl_pre_down().

It simplifies a little these xxxctl_down() functions and increases a little
the maintainability.

11 years agoipc: scale msgmni to the amount of lowmem
Nadia Derbey [Tue, 29 Apr 2008 08:00:39 +0000]
ipc: scale msgmni to the amount of lowmem

On large systems we'd like to allow a larger number of message queues.  In
some cases up to 32K.  However simply setting MSGMNI to a larger value may
cause problems for smaller systems.

The first patch of this series introduces a default maximum number of message
queue ids that scales with the amount of lowmem.

Since msgmni is per namespace and there is no amount of memory dedicated to
each namespace so far, the second patch of this series scales msgmni to the
number of ipc namespaces too.

Since msgmni depends on the amount of memory, it becomes necessary to
recompute it upon memory add/remove.  In the 4th patch, memory hotplug
management is added: a notifier block is registered into the memory hotplug
notifier chain for the ipc subsystem.  Since the ipc namespaces are not linked
together, they have their own notification chain: one notifier_block is
defined per ipc namespace.  Each time an ipc namespace is created (removed) it
registers (unregisters) its notifier block in (from) the ipcns chain.  The
callback routine registered in the memory chain invokes the ipcns notifier
chain with the IPCNS_MEMCHANGE event.  Each callback routine registered in the
ipcns namespace, in turn, recomputes msgmni for the owning namespace.

The 5th patch makes it possible to keep the memory hotplug notifier chain's
lock for a lesser amount of time: instead of directly notifying the ipcns
notifier chain upon memory add/remove, a work item is added to the global
workqueue.  When activated, this work item is the one who notifies the ipcns
notifier chain.

Since msgmni depends on the number of ipc namespaces, it becomes necessary to
recompute it upon ipc namespace creation / removal.  The 6th patch uses the
ipc namespace notifier chain for that purpose: that chain is notified each
time an ipc namespace is created or removed.  This makes it possible to
recompute msgmni for all the namespaces each time one of them is created or
removed.

When msgmni is explicitely set from userspace, we should avoid recomputing it
upon memory add/remove or ipcns creation/removal.  This is what the 7th patch
does: it simply unregisters the ipcns callback routine as soon as msgmni has
been changed from procfs or sysctl().

Even if msgmni is set by hand, it should be possible to make it back
automatically recomputed upon memory add/remove or ipcns creation/removal.
This what is achieved in patch 8: if set to a negative value, msgmni is added
back to the ipcns notifier chain, making it automatically recomputed again.

This patch:

Compute msg_ctlmni to make it scale with the amount of lowmem.  msg_ctlmni is
now set to make the message queues occupy 1/32 of the available lowmem.

Some cleaning has also been done for the MSGPOOL constant: the msgctl man page
says it's not used, but it also defines it as a size in bytes (the code
expresses it in Kbytes).

Oleg Nesterov [Tue, 29 Apr 2008 08:00:29 +0000]
simplify cpu_hotplug_begin()/put_online_cpus()

cpu_hotplug_begin() must be always called under cpu_add_remove_lock, this
means that only one process can be cpu_hotplug.active_writer.  So we don't
need the cpu_hotplug.writer_queue, we can wake up the ->active_writer
directly.

Also, fix the comment.

11 years agoworkqueues: shrink cpu_populated_map when CPU dies
Oleg Nesterov [Tue, 29 Apr 2008 08:00:27 +0000]
workqueues: shrink cpu_populated_map when CPU dies

When cpu_populated_map was introduced, it was supposed that cwq->thread can
survive after CPU_DEAD, that is why we never shrink cpu_populated_map.

This is not very nice, we can safely remove the already dead CPU from the map.
 The only required change is that destroy_workqueue() must hold the hotplug
lock until it destroys all cwq->thread's, to protect the cpu_populated_map.
We could make the local copy of cpu mask and drop the lock, but
sizeof(cpumask_t) may be very large.

Also, fix the comment near queue_work().  Unless _cpu_down() happens we do
guarantee the cpu-affinity of the work_struct, and we have users which rely on
this.

Cpuset hardwall flag: switch cpusets to use the bulk cgroup_add_files() API

Currently the cpusets mem_exclusive flag is overloaded to mean both
"no-overlapping" and "no GFP_KERNEL allocations outside this cpuset".

These patches add a new mem_hardwall flag with just the allocation restriction
part of the mem_exclusive semantics, without breaking backwards-compatibility
for those who continue to use just mem_exclusive.  Additionally, the cgroup
control file registration for cpusets is cleaned up to reduce boilerplate.

This patch:

This change tidies up the cpusets control file definitions, and reduces the
amount of boilerplate required to add/change control files in the future.

memcgroup: implement failcounter reset

This is a very common requirement from people using the resource accounting
facilities (not only memcgroup but also OpenVZ beancounters).  They want to
put the cgroup in an initial state without re-creating it.

For example after re-configuring a group people want to observe how this new
configuration fits the group needs without saving the previous failcnt value.

Merge two resets into one mem_cgroup_reset() function to demonstrate how
multiplexing work.

Besides, I have plans to move the files, that correspond to res_counter to the
res_counter.c file and somehow "import" them into controller.  I don't know
how to make it gracefully yet, but merging resets of max_usage and failcnt in
one function will be there for sure.

Move the memory controller data structure page_cgroup to its own slab cache.
It saves space on the system, allocations are not necessarily pushed to order
of 2 and should provide performance benefits.  Users who disable the memory
controller can also double check that the memory controller is not allocating
page_cgroup's.

NOTE: Hugh Dickins brought up the issue of whether we want to mark page_cgroup
as __GFP_MOVABLE or __GFP_RECLAIMABLE.  I don't think there is an easy answer
at the moment.  page_cgroup's are associated with user pages, they can be
reclaimed once the user page has been reclaimed, so it might make sense to
mark them as __GFP_RECLAIMABLE.  For now, I am leaving the marking to default
values that the slab allocator uses.

11 years agocgroups: add an owner to the mm_struct
Balbir Singh [Tue, 29 Apr 2008 08:00:16 +0000]
cgroups: add an owner to the mm_struct

Remove the mem_cgroup member from mm_struct and instead adds an owner.

This approach was suggested by Paul Menage.  The advantage of this approach
is that, once the mm->owner is known, using the subsystem id, the cgroup
can be determined.  It also allows several control groups that are
virtually grouped by mm_struct, to exist independent of the memory
controller i.e., without adding mem_cgroup's for each controller, to
mm_struct.

A new config option CONFIG_MM_OWNER is added and the memory resource
controller selects this config option.

This patch also adds cgroup callbacks to notify subsystems when mm->owner
changes.  The mm_cgroup_changed callback is called with the task_lock() of
the new task held and is called just prior to changing the mm->owner.

I am indebted to Paul Menage for the several reviews of this patchset and
helping me make it lighter and simpler.

This patch was tested on a powerpc box, it was compiled with both the
MM_OWNER config turned on and off.

After the thread group leader exits, it's moved to init_css_state by
cgroup_exit(), thus all future charges from runnings threads would be
redirected to the init_css_set's subsystem.

11 years agocgroups: implement device whitelist
Serge E. Hallyn [Tue, 29 Apr 2008 08:00:10 +0000]
cgroups: implement device whitelist

Implement a cgroup to track and enforce open and mknod restrictions on device
files.  A device cgroup associates a device access whitelist with each cgroup.
 A whitelist entry has 4 fields.  'type' is a (all), c (char), or b (block).
'all' means it applies to all types and all major and minor numbers.  Major
and minor are either an integer or * for all.  Access is a composition of r
(read), w (write), and m (mknod).

The root device cgroup starts with rwm to 'all'.  A child devcg gets a copy of
the parent.  Admins can then remove devices from the whitelist or add new
entries.  A child cgroup can never receive a device access which is denied its
parent.  However when a device access is removed from a parent it will not
also be removed from the child(ren).

An entry is added using devices.allow, and removed using
devices.deny.  For instance

echo 'c 1:3 mr' > /cgroups/1/devices.allow

11 years agoeCryptfs: introduce device handle for userspace daemon communications
Michael Halcrow [Tue, 29 Apr 2008 07:59:50 +0000]
eCryptfs: introduce device handle for userspace daemon communications

A regular device file was my real preference from the get-go, but I went with
netlink at the time because I thought it would be less complex for managing
send queues (i.e., just do a unicast and move on).  It turns out that we do
not really get that much complexity reduction with netlink, and netlink is
more heavyweight than a device handle.

In addition, the netlink interface to eCryptfs has been broken since 2.6.24.
I am assuming this is a bug in how eCryptfs uses netlink, since the other
in-kernel users of netlink do not seem to be having any problems.  I have had
one report of a user successfully using eCryptfs with netlink on 2.6.24, but
for my own systems, when starting the userspace daemon, the initial helo
message sent to the eCryptfs kernel module results in an oops right off the
bat.  I spent some time looking at it, but I have not yet found the cause.
The netlink interface breaking gave me the motivation to just finish my patch
to migrate to a regular device handle.  If I cannot find out soon why the
netlink interface in eCryptfs broke, I am likely to just send a patch to
disable it in 2.6.24 and 2.6.25.  I would like the device handle to be the
preferred means of communicating with the userspace daemon from 2.6.26 on
forward.

This patch:

Functions to facilitate reading and writing to the eCryptfs miscellaneous
device handle.  This will replace the netlink interface as the preferred
mechanism for communicating with the userspace eCryptfs daemon.

Each user has his own daemon, which registers itself by opening the eCryptfs
device handle.  Only one daemon per euid may be registered at any given time.
The eCryptfs module sends a message to a daemon by adding its message to the
daemon's outgoing message queue.  The daemon reads the device handle to get
the oldest message off the queue.

Incoming messages from the userspace daemon are immediately handled.  If the
message is a response, then the corresponding process that is blocked waiting
for the response is awakened.

11 years agovt: fix background color on line feed
Jan Engelhardt [Tue, 29 Apr 2008 07:59:46 +0000]
vt: fix background color on line feed

A command that causes a line feed while a background color is active,
such as

perl -e 'print "x" x 60, "\e[44m", "x" x 40, "\e[0m\n"'
and
perl -e 'print "x" x 40, "\e[44m\n", "x" x 40, "\e[0m\n"'

causes the line that was started as a result of the line feed to be completely
filled with the currently active background color instead of the default
color.

When scrolling, part of the current screen is memcpy'd/memmove'd to the new
region, and the new line(s) that will appear as a result are cleared using
memset.  However, the lines are cleared with vc->vc_video_erase_char, causing
them to be colored with the currently active background color.  This is
different from X11 terminal emulators which always paint the new lines with
the default background color (e.g.  `xterm -bg black`).

The clear operation (\e[1J and \e[2J) also use vc_video_erase_char, so a new
vc->vc_scrl_erase_char is introduced with contains the erase character used
for scrolling, which is built from vc->vc_def_color instead of vc->vc_color.

binfmt_misc.c: avoid potential kernel stack overflow

This can be triggered with root help only, but...

Register the ":text:E::txt::/root/cat.txt:' rule in binfmt_misc (by root) and
try launching the cat.txt file (by anyone) :) The result is - the endless
recursion in the load_misc_binary -> open_exec -> load_misc_binary chain and
stack overflow.

There's a similar problem with binfmt_script, and there's a sh_bang memner on
linux_binprm structure to handle this, but simply raising this in binfmt_misc
may break some setups when the interpreter of some misc binaries is a script.

So the proposal is to turn sh_bang into a bit, add a new one (the misc_bang)
and raise it in load_misc_binary.  After this, even if we set up the misc ->
script -> misc loop for binfmts one of them will step on its own bang and
exit.

11 years agosysrq: add show-backtrace-on-all-cpus function
Rik van Riel [Tue, 29 Apr 2008 07:59:21 +0000]
sysrq: add show-backtrace-on-all-cpus function

SysRQ-P is not always useful on SMP systems, since it usually ends up showing
the backtrace of a CPU that is doing just fine, instead of the backtrace of
the CPU that is having problems.

This patch adds SysRQ show-all-cpus(L), which shows the backtrace of every
active CPU in the system.  It skips idle CPUs because some SMP systems are
just too large and we already know what the backtrace of the idle task looks
like.
