12 years agorcu: fix misplaced mb() in rcu_enter/exit_nohz()
Paul E. McKenney [Thu, 20 Mar 2008 00:00:57 +0000]
rcu: fix misplaced mb() in rcu_enter/exit_nohz()

In the process of writing up the mechanical proof of correctness for the
dynticks/preemptable-RCU interface, I noticed misplaced memory barriers in
rcu_enter_nohz() and rcu_exit_nohz().

This patch puts them in the right place and adds a comment.  The key thing to
keep in mind is that rcu_enter_nohz() is -exiting- the mode that can legally
execute RCU read-side critical sections.

The memory barrier must be between any potential RCU read-side critical
sections and the increment of the per-CPU dynticks_progress_counter, and thus
must come -before- this increment.  And vice versa for rcu_exit_nohz().

The locking in the scheduler is probably saving us for the moment.

Also, switch to smp_mb() - we don't need a barrier for uniprocessor kernels.

i810fb: fix console switch regression

Since 4c7ffe0b9f7f40bd818fe3af51342f64c483908e ("fbdev: prevent drivers that
have hardware cursors from calling software cursor code") every call of
i810fb_cursor fails with -ENXIO because of a incorrect "!".

This hasn't struck until eaa0ff15c30dc9799eb4d12660edb73aeb6d32c5 ("fix !
versus & precedence in various places") surrounded the expression with braces,
so that the intended behavior was inverted.  That caused 'pixel waste' - the
same line of multi-colored pixels repeated over the whole screen - during
console switch.

This switches back to the original pre-4c7ffe0 behavior.

Fix up an error in iget removal in which romfs_lookup() making a successful
call to romfs_iget() continues through the negative/error handling (previously
the successful case jumped around the negative/error handling case):

 (1) inode is initialised to NULL at the top of the function, eliminating the
     need for specific negative-inode handling.  This means the positive
     success handling now flows straight through.

 (2) Rename the labels to be clearer about what they mean.

Also make romfs_lookup()'s result variable of type long so as to avoid
32-bit/64-bit conversions with PTR_ERR() and friends.

12 years agoaio: bad AIO race in aio_complete() leads to process hang
Quentin Barnes [Thu, 20 Mar 2008 00:00:39 +0000]
aio: bad AIO race in aio_complete() leads to process hang

My group ran into a AIO process hang on a 2.6.24 kernel with the process
sleeping indefinitely in io_getevents(2) waiting for the last wakeup to come
and it never would.

We ran the tests on x86_64 SMP.  The hang only occurred on a Xeon box
("Clovertown") but not a Core2Duo ("Conroe").  On the Xeon, the L2 cache isn't
shared between all eight processors, but is L2 is shared between between all
two processors on the Core2Duo we use.

My analysis of the hang is if you go down to the second while-loop
in read_events(), what happens on processor #1:
1) add_wait_queue_exclusive() adds thread to ctx->wait
2) aio_read_evt() to check tail
3) if aio_read_evt() returned 0, call [io_]schedule() and sleep

In aio_complete() with processor #2:
A) info->tail = tail;
B) waitqueue_active(&ctx->wait)
C) if waitqueue_active() returned non-0, call wake_up()

The way the code is written, step 1 must be seen by all other processors
before processor 1 checks for pending events in step 2 (that were recorded by
step A) and step A by processor 2 must be seen by all other processors
(checked in step 2) before step B is done.

The race I believed I was seeing is that steps 1 and 2 were
effectively swapped due to the __list_add() being delayed by the L2
cache not shared by some of the other processors.  Imagine:
proc 2: just before step A
proc 1, step 1: adds to ctx->wait, but is not visible by other processors yet
proc 1, step 2: checks tail and sees no pending events
proc 2, step A: updates tail
proc 1, step 3: calls [io_]schedule() and sleeps
proc 2, step B: checks ctx->wait, but sees no one waiting, skips wakeup
                so proc 1 sleeps indefinitely

My patch adds a memory barrier between steps A and B.  It ensures that the
update in step 1 gets seen on processor 2 before continuing.  If processor 1
was just before step 1, the memory barrier makes sure that step A (update
tail) gets seen by the time processor 1 makes it to step 2 (check tail).

Before the patch our AIO process would hang virtually 100% of the time.  After
the patch, we have yet to see the process ever hang.

12 years agoIDE: Make taskfile interface more robust wrt unexpected end-of-command
Linus Torvalds [Wed, 19 Mar 2008 04:26:24 +0000]
IDE: Make taskfile interface more robust wrt unexpected end-of-command

Now that we handle all the special commands using REQ_TYPE_ATA_TASKFILE
rather than using the old REQ_TYPE_ATA_CMD model, we need to also
emulate the lack of full taskfile data that comes with the old command
model (ie when commands are generated with the HDIO_DRIVE_CMD ioctl
rather than using the HDIO_DRIVE_TASK[FILE] ioctls).

In particular, this means that we should handle command completion the
more relaxed way that the old drive_cmd_intr() code did.  It allows
commands to finish early even if they don't use up all the data that we
thought we had for them.

This fixes a regression seen by Anders Eriksson where some SMART
commands sent by smartd would cause a boot-time system hang on his
machine because the IDE command handling code didn't realize that the
command had completed.

Wakeup-buddy tasks are cache-hot - this makes it a bit harder

12 years agosched: improve affine wakeups
Ingo Molnar [Wed, 19 Mar 2008 00:42:00 +0000]
sched: improve affine wakeups

improve affine wakeups. Maintain the 'overlap' metric based on CFS's
sum_exec_runtime - which means the amount of time a task executes
after it wakes up some other task.

Use the 'overlap' for the wakeup decisions: if the 'overlap' is short,
it means there's strong workload coupling between this task and the
woken up task. If the 'overlap' is large then the workload is decoupled
and the scheduler will move them to separate CPUs more easily.

( Also slightly move the preempt_check within try_to_wake_up() - this has
  no effect on functionality but allows 'early wakeups' (for still-on-rq
  tasks) to be correctly accounted as well.)

Alexey Starikovskiy [Tue, 18 Mar 2008 02:37:42 +0000]
ACPI: battery: Don't return -EFAIL on broken packages.

Acer BIOS has a bug which is exposed when a dead battery is present.

The package template that is used to describe battery status is
over-written with sane values when the battery is live.
But when the batter is dead, a bogus reference in the template
is used.  In this case, Linux returns a fault, when instead
it should simply return that it doesn't know the missing value.

pciehp: don't enable slot unless forced

This fixes a 2.6.25 regression reported by Alex Chiang.

Invoke pciehp_enable_slot() at startup only when pciehp_force=1.
Some HP equipment apparently cannot cope with it otherwise.

This restores the (previously working) 2.6.24 behaviour here,
while allowing machines that need a kick to use pciehp_force=1.

This was the original design back in October 2007,
but Kristen suggested we try without it first:

   Kristen Carlson Accardi wrote:
   >I think it would be ok to try allowing the slot to be enabled when not
   >using pciehp_force mode.  We can wrap it later if it proves to break things

This ended up breaking one of Alex's setups,
so it's time to put the wrapper back in now.

The problem can be triggered with a high amount of host->guest traffic.
I think its the following race:

poll says netif_rx_complete
poll calls enable_cb
enable_cb opens the interrupt mask
a new packet comes, an interrupt is triggered----\
enable_cb sees that there is more work           |
enable_cb disables the interrupt                 |
       .                                         V
       .                            interrupt is delivered
       .                            skb_recv_done does atomic napi test, ok
 some waiting                       disable_cb is called->check fails->bang!
       .
poll would do napi check
poll would do disable_cb

The fix is to let enable_cb not disable the interrupt again, but expect the
caller to do the cleanup if it returns false. In that case, the interrupt is
only disabled, if the napi test_set_bit was successful.

12 years agodrm: Fix race that can lockup the kernel
Mike Isely [Thu, 13 Mar 2008 20:30:35 +0000]
drm: Fix race that can lockup the kernel

The i915_vblank_swap() function schedules an automatic buffer swap
upon receipt of the vertical sync interrupt.  Such an operation is
lengthy so it can't be allowed to happen in normal interrupt context,
thus the DRM implements this by scheduling the work in a kernel
softirq-scheduled tasklet.  In order for the buffer swap to work
safely, the DRM's central lock must be taken, via a call to
drm_lock_take() located in drivers/char/drm/drm_irq.c within the
function drm_locked_tasklet_func().  The lock-taking logic uses a
non-interrupt-blocking spinlock to implement the manipulations needed
to take the lock.  This semantic would be safe if all attempts to use
the spinlock only happen from process context.  However this buffer
swap happens from softirq context which is really a form of interrupt
context.  Thus we have an unsafe situation, in that
drm_locked_tasklet_func() can block on a spinlock already taken by a
thread in process context which will never get scheduled again because
of the blocked softirq tasklet.  This wedges the kernel hard.

To trigger this bug, run a dual-head cloned mode configuration which
uses the i915 drm, then execute an opengl application which
synchronizes buffer swaps against the vertical sync interrupt.  In my
testing, a lockup always results after running anywhere from 5 minutes
to an hour and a half.  I believe dual-head is needed to really
trigger the problem because then the vertical sync interrupt handling
is no longer predictable (due to being interrupt-sourced from two
different heads running at different speeds).  This raises the
probability of the tasklet trying to run while the userspace DRI is
doing things to the GPU (and manipulating the DRM lock).

The fix is to change the relevant spinlock semantics to be the
interrupt-blocking form.  After this change I am no longer able to
trigger the lockup; the longest test run so far was 20 hours (test
stopped after that point).

Note: I have examined the places where this spinlock is being
employed; all are reasonably short bounded sequences and should be
suitable for interrupts being blocked without impacting overall kernel
interrupt response latency.

[PARISC] futex: special case cmpxchg NULL in kernel space

Commit a0c1e9073ef7428a14309cba010633a6cd6719ea added code to futex.c
to detect whether futex_atomic_cmpxchg_inatomic was implemented at run
time:

+       curval = cmpxchg_futex_value_locked(NULL, 0, 0);
+       if (curval == -EFAULT)
+               futex_cmpxchg_enabled = 1;

This is bogus on parisc, since page zero in kernel virtual space is the
gateway page for syscall entry, and should not be read from the kernel.
(That, and we really don't like the kernel faulting on its own address
 space...)

[PARISC] clean up show_stack

When we show_regs, we obviously have a struct pt_regs of the calling
frame. Use these in show_stack so we don't have the entire bogus call trace
up to the show_stack call.

[PARISC] pdc_console: fix bizarre panic on boot

Commit 721fdf34167580ff98263c74cead8871d76936e6 introduced a subtle bug
by accidently removing the "static" from iodc_dbuf. This resulted in, what
appeared to be, a trap without *current set to a task. Probably the result of
a trap in real mode while calling firmware.

Also do other misc clean ups. Since the only input from firmware is non
blocking, share iodc_dbuf between input and output, and spinlock the
only callers.
