vmscan: tracing: add trace events for LRU page isolation

Add an event for when pages are isolated en-masse from the LRU lists.
This event augments the information available on LRU traffic and can be
used to evaluate lumpy reclaim.

9 years agomm: implement writeback livelock avoidance using page tagging
Jan Kara [Tue, 10 Aug 2010 00:19:12 +0000]
mm: implement writeback livelock avoidance using page tagging

We try to avoid livelocks of writeback when some steadily creates dirty
pages in a mapping we are writing out.  For memory-cleaning writeback,
using nr_to_write works reasonably well but we cannot really use it for
data integrity writeback.  This patch tries to solve the problem.

The idea is simple: Tag all pages that should be written back with a
special tag (TOWRITE) in the radix tree.  This can be done rather quickly
and thus livelocks should not happen in practice.  Then we start doing the
hard work of locking pages and sending them to disk only for those pages
that have TOWRITE tag set.

Note: Adding new radix tree tag grows radix tree node from 288 to 296
bytes for 32-bit archs and from 552 to 560 bytes for 64-bit archs.
However, the number of slab/slub items per page remains the same (13 and 7
respectively).

Andrea Arcangeli [Tue, 10 Aug 2010 00:19:08 +0000]
ksm: fix ksm swapin time optimization

The new anon-vma code, was suboptimal and it lead to erratic invocation of
ksm_does_need_to_copy.  That leads to host hangs or guest vnc lockup, or
weird behavior.  It's unclear why ksm_does_need_to_copy is unstable but
the point is that when KSM is not in use, ksm_does_need_to_copy must never
run or we bounce pages for no good reason.  I suspect the same hangs will
happen with KVM swaps.  But this at least fixes the regression in the
new-anon-vma code and it only let KSM bugs triggers when KSM is in use.

The code in do_swap_page likely doesn't cope well with a not-swapcache,
especially the memcg code.

shmem: reduce pagefault lock contention

I'm running a shmem pagefault test case (see attached file) under a 64 CPU
system.  Profile shows shmem_inode_info->lock is heavily contented and
100% CPUs time are trying to get the lock.  In the pagefault (no swap)
case, shmem_getpage gets the lock twice, the last one is avoidable if we
prealloc a page so we could reduce one time of locking.  This is what
below patch does.

The result of the test case:
2.6.35-rc3: ~20s
2.6.35-rc3 + patch: ~12s
so this is 40% improvement.

One might argue if we could have better locking for shmem.  But even shmem
is lockless, the pagefault will soon have pagecache lock heavily contented
because shmem must add new page to pagecache.  So before we have better
locking for pagecache, improving shmem locking doesn't have too much
improvement.  I did a similar pagefault test against a ramfs file, the
test result is ~10.5s.

9 years agotmpfs: make tmpfs scalable with percpu_counter for used blocks
Tim Chen [Tue, 10 Aug 2010 00:19:05 +0000]
tmpfs: make tmpfs scalable with percpu_counter for used blocks

The current implementation of tmpfs is not scalable.  We found that
stat_lock is contended by multiple threads when we need to get a new page,
leading to useless spinning inside this spin lock.

This patch makes use of the percpu_counter library to maintain local count
of used blocks to speed up getting and returning of pages.  So the
acquisition of stat_lock is unnecessary for getting and returning blocks,
improving the performance of tmpfs on system with large number of cpus.
On a 4 socket 32 core NHM-EX system, we saw improvement of 270%.

The implementation below has a slight chance of race between threads
causing a slight overshoot of the maximum configured blocks.  However, any
overshoot is small, and is bounded by the number of cpus.  This happens
when the number of used blocks is slightly below the maximum configured
blocks when a thread checks the used block count, and another thread
allocates the last block before the current thread does.  This should not
be a problem for tmpfs, as the overshoot is most likely to be a few blocks
and bounded.  If a strict limit is really desired, then configured the max
blocks to be the limit less the number of cpus in system.

The actual count is a sum of count and the cpu counters.  However, count
field is never different from the actual value by a factor of
batch*num_online_cpu.  We do not need to get actual count for comparison
if count is different from the given value by this factor and allows for

The role of functions is to lock of zonelist for preventing parallel
OOM. So clear_zonelist_oom makes sense but try_set_zone_oome is rather
awkward and unmatched with clear_zonelist_oom.

Let's change it with try_set_zonelist_oom.

9 years agooom: remove unnecessary code and cleanup

oom: remove unnecessary code and cleanup

Remove the redundancy in __oom_kill_task() since:

 - init can never be passed to this function: it will never be PF_EXITING
   or selectable from select_bad_process(), and

 - it will never be passed a task from oom_kill_task() without an ->mm
   and we're unconcerned about detachment from exiting tasks, there's no
   reason to protect them against SIGKILL or access to memory reserves.

Also moves the kernel log message to a higher level since the verbosity is
not always emitted here; we need not print an error message if an exiting
task is given a longer timeslice.

__oom_kill_task() only has a single caller, so it can be merged into that
function at the same time.

9 years agooom: remove special handling for pagefault ooms
David Rientjes [Tue, 10 Aug 2010 00:18:55 +0000]
oom: remove special handling for pagefault ooms

It is possible to remove the special pagefault oom handler by simply oom
locking all system zones and then calling directly into out_of_memory().

All populated zones must have ZONE_OOM_LOCKED set, otherwise there is a
parallel oom killing in progress that will lead to eventual memory freeing
so it's not necessary to needlessly kill another task.  The context in
which the pagefault is allocating memory is unknown to the oom killer, so
this is done on a system-wide level.

If a task has already been oom killed and hasn't fully exited yet, this
will be a no-op since select_bad_process() recognizes tasks across the
system with TIF_MEMDIE set.

9 years agooom: avoid oom killer for lowmem allocations
David Rientjes [Tue, 10 Aug 2010 00:18:54 +0000]
oom: avoid oom killer for lowmem allocations

If memory has been depleted in lowmem zones even with the protection
afforded to it by /proc/sys/vm/lowmem_reserve_ratio, it is unlikely that
killing current users will help.  The memory is either reclaimable (or
migratable) already, in which case we should not invoke the oom killer at
all, or it is pinned by an application for I/O.  Killing such an
application may leave the hardware in an unspecified state and there is no
guarantee that it will be able to make a timely exit.

Lowmem allocations are now failed in oom conditions when __GFP_NOFAIL is
not used so that the task can perhaps recover or try again later.

Previously, the heuristic provided some protection for those tasks with
CAP_SYS_RAWIO, but this is no longer necessary since we will not be
killing tasks for the purposes of ISA allocations.

high_zoneidx is gfp_zone(gfp_flags), meaning that ZONE_NORMAL will be the
default for all allocations that are not __GFP_DMA, __GFP_DMA32,
__GFP_HIGHMEM, and __GFP_MOVABLE on kernels configured to support those
flags.  Testing for high_zoneidx being less than ZONE_NORMAL will only
return true for allocations that have either __GFP_DMA or __GFP_DMA32.

9 years agooom: sacrifice child with highest badness score for parent
David Rientjes [Tue, 10 Aug 2010 00:18:51 +0000]
oom: sacrifice child with highest badness score for parent

When a task is chosen for oom kill, the oom killer first attempts to
sacrifice a child not sharing its parent's memory instead.  Unfortunately,
this often kills in a seemingly random fashion based on the ordering of
the selected task's child list.  Additionally, it is not guaranteed at all
to free a large amount of memory that we need to prevent additional oom
killing in the very near future.

Instead, we now only attempt to sacrifice the worst child not sharing its
parent's memory, if one exists.  The worst child is indicated with the
highest badness() score.  This serves two advantages: we kill a
memory-hogging task more often, and we allow the configurable
/proc/pid/oom_adj value to be considered as a factor in which child to
kill.

Reviewers may observe that the previous implementation would iterate
through the children and attempt to kill each until one was successful and
then the parent if none were found while the new code simply kills the
most memory-hogging task or the parent.  Note that the only time
oom_kill_task() fails, however, is when a child does not have an mm or has
a /proc/pid/oom_adj of OOM_DISABLE.  badness() returns 0 for both cases,
so the final oom_kill_task() will always succeed.

9 years agooom: filter tasks not sharing the same cpuset
David Rientjes [Tue, 10 Aug 2010 00:18:50 +0000]
oom: filter tasks not sharing the same cpuset

Tasks that do not share the same set of allowed nodes with the task that
triggered the oom should not be considered as candidates for oom kill.

Tasks in other cpusets with a disjoint set of mems would be unfairly
penalized otherwise because of oom conditions elsewhere; an extreme
example could unfairly kill all other applications on the system if a
single task in a user's cpuset sets itself to OOM_DISABLE and then uses
more memory than allowed.

Killing tasks outside of current's cpuset rarely would free memory for
current anyway.  To use a sane heuristic, we must ensure that killing a
task would likely free memory for current and avoid needlessly killing
others at all costs just because their potential memory freeing is
unknown.  It is better to kill current than another task needlessly.

9 years agooom: give current access to memory reserves if it has been killed
David Rientjes [Tue, 10 Aug 2010 00:18:48 +0000]
oom: give current access to memory reserves if it has been killed

It's possible to livelock the page allocator if a thread has mm->mmap_sem
and fails to make forward progress because the oom killer selects another
thread sharing the same ->mm to kill that cannot exit until the semaphore
is dropped.

The oom killer will not kill multiple tasks at the same time; each oom
killed task must exit before another task may be killed.  Thus, if one
thread is holding mm->mmap_sem and cannot allocate memory, all threads
sharing the same ->mm are blocked from exiting as well.  In the oom kill
case, that means the thread holding mm->mmap_sem will never free
additional memory since it cannot get access to memory reserves and the
thread that depends on it with access to memory reserves cannot exit
because it cannot acquire the semaphore.  Thus, the page allocators
livelocks.

When the oom killer is called and current happens to have a pending
SIGKILL, this patch automatically gives it access to memory reserves and
returns.  Upon returning to the page allocator, its allocation will
hopefully succeed so it can quickly exit and free its memory.  If not, the
page allocator will fail the allocation if it is not __GFP_NOFAIL.

9 years agooom: introduce find_lock_task_mm() to fix !mm false positives
Oleg Nesterov [Tue, 10 Aug 2010 00:18:45 +0000]
oom: introduce find_lock_task_mm() to fix !mm false positives

Almost all ->mm == NULL checks in oom_kill.c are wrong.

The current code assumes that the task without ->mm has already released
its memory and ignores the process.  However this is not necessarily true
when this process is multithreaded, other live sub-threads can use this
->mm.

- Remove the "if (!p->mm)" check in select_bad_process(), it is
  just wrong.

- Add the new helper, find_lock_task_mm(), which finds the live
  thread which uses the memory and takes task_lock() to pin ->mm

- change oom_badness() to use this helper instead of just checking
  ->mm != NULL.

- As David pointed out, select_bad_process() must never choose the
  task without ->mm, but no matter what oom_badness() returns the
  task can be chosen if nothing else has been found yet.

  Change oom_badness() to return int, change it to return -1 if
  find_lock_task_mm() fails, and change select_bad_process() to
  check points >= 0.

Note! This patch is not enough, we need more changes.

- oom_badness() was fixed, but oom_kill_task() still ignores
  the task without ->mm

- oom_forkbomb_penalty() should use find_lock_task_mm() too,
  and it also needs other changes to actually find the first
  first-descendant children

This will be addressed later.

The comment suggests that when b_count equals zero it is calling
__wait_no_buffer to trigger some debug, but as there is no debug in
__wait_on_buffer the whole thing is redundant.

9 years agomm: extend KSM refcounts to the anon_vma root
Rik van Riel [Tue, 10 Aug 2010 00:18:41 +0000]
mm: extend KSM refcounts to the anon_vma root

KSM reference counts can cause an anon_vma to exist after the processe it
belongs to have already exited.  Because the anon_vma lock now lives in
the root anon_vma, we need to ensure that the root anon_vma stays around
until after all the "child" anon_vmas have been freed.

The obvious way to do this is to have a "child" anon_vma take a reference
to the root in anon_vma_fork.  When the anon_vma is freed at munmap or
process exit, we drop the refcount in anon_vma_unlink and possibly free
the root anon_vma.

The KSM anon_vma reference count function also needs to be modified to
deal with the possibility of freeing 2 levels of anon_vma.  The easiest
way to do this is to break out the KSM magic and make it generic.

When compiling without CONFIG_KSM, this code is compiled out.

9 years agomm: always lock the root (oldest) anon_vma
Rik van Riel [Tue, 10 Aug 2010 00:18:40 +0000]
mm: always lock the root (oldest) anon_vma

Always (and only) lock the root (oldest) anon_vma whenever we do something
in an anon_vma.  The recently introduced anon_vma scalability is due to
the rmap code scanning only the VMAs that need to be scanned.  Many common
operations still took the anon_vma lock on the root anon_vma, so always
taking that lock is not expected to introduce any scalability issues.

However, always taking the same lock does mean we only need to take one
lock, which means rmap_walk on pages from any anon_vma in the vma is
excluded from occurring during an munmap, expand_stack or other operation
that needs to exclude rmap_walk and similar functions.

Also add the proper locking to vma_adjust.

9 years agomm: track the root (oldest) anon_vma
Rik van Riel [Tue, 10 Aug 2010 00:18:39 +0000]
mm: track the root (oldest) anon_vma

Track the root (oldest) anon_vma in each anon_vma tree.  Because we only
take the lock on the root anon_vma, we cannot use the lock on higher-up
anon_vmas to lock anything.  This makes it impossible to do an indirect
lookup of the root anon_vma, since the data structures could go away from
under us.

However, a direct pointer is safe because the root anon_vma is always the
last one that gets freed on munmap or exit, by virtue of the same_vma list
order and unlink_anon_vmas walking the list forward.

9 years agokmap_atomic: make kunmap_atomic() harder to misuse
Cesar Eduardo Barros [Tue, 10 Aug 2010 00:18:32 +0000]
kmap_atomic: make kunmap_atomic() harder to misuse

kunmap_atomic() is currently at level -4 on Rusty's "Hard To Misuse"
list[1] ("Follow common convention and you'll get it wrong"), except in
some architectures when CONFIG_DEBUG_HIGHMEM is set[2][3].

kunmap() takes a pointer to a struct page; kunmap_atomic(), however, takes
takes a pointer to within the page itself.  This seems to once in a while
trip people up (the convention they are following is the one from
kunmap()).

Make it much harder to misuse, by moving it to level 9 on Rusty's list[4]
("The compiler/linker won't let you get it wrong").  This is done by
refusing to build if the type of its first argument is a pointer to a
struct page.

The real kunmap_atomic() is renamed to kunmap_atomic_notypecheck()
(which is what you would call in case for some strange reason calling it
with a pointer to a struct page is not incorrect in your code).

The previous version of this patch was compile tested on x86-64.

[1] http://ozlabs.org/~rusty/index.cgi/tech/2008-04-01.html
[2] In these cases, it is at level 5, "Do it right or it will always
    break at runtime."
[3] At least mips and powerpc look very similar, and sparc also seems to
    share a common ancestor with both; there seems to be quite some
    degree of copy-and-paste coding here. The include/asm/highmem.h file
    for these three archs mention x86 CPUs at its top.
[4] http://ozlabs.org/~rusty/index.cgi/tech/2008-03-30.html
[5] As an aside, could someone tell me why mn10300 uses unsigned long as
    the first parameter of kunmap_atomic() instead of void *?

through handle_pte_fault for normal pages, or through hugetlb_fault for

asm-generic: use raw_local_irq_save/restore instead local_irq_save/restore

The start/stop_critical_timing functions for preemptirqsoff, preemptoff
and irqsoff tracers contain atomic_inc() and atomic_dec() operations.

Atomic operations use local_irq_save/restore macros to ensure atomic
access but they are traced by the same function which is causing recursion
problem.

The reason is when these tracers are turn ON then the
local_irq_save/restore macros are changed in include/linux/irqflags.h to
call trace_hardirqs_on/off which call start/stop_critical_timing.

Microblaze was affected because it uses generic atomic implementation.

drm: fix fallouts from slow-work -> wq conversion

Commit 991ea75c (drm: use workqueue instead of slow-work), which made
drm to use wq instead of slow-work, didn't account for the return
value difference between delayed_slow_work_enqueue() and
queue_delayed_work().  The former returns 0 on success and -errno on
failures while the latter never fails and only uses the return value
to indicate whether the work was already pending or not.

This misconversion triggered spurious error messages.  Remove the now
unnecessary return value check and error message.

Markus: caught another incorrect conversion in drm_kms_helper_poll_enable()

9 years agoworkqueue: workqueue_cpu_callback() should be cpu_notifier instead of hotcpu_notifier
Tejun Heo [Mon, 9 Aug 2010 09:50:34 +0000]
workqueue: workqueue_cpu_callback() should be cpu_notifier instead of hotcpu_notifier

Commit 6ee0578b (workqueue: mark init_workqueues as early_initcall)
made workqueue SMP initialization depend on workqueue_cpu_callback(),
which however was registered as hotcpu_notifier() and didn't get
called if CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU is not set.  This made gcwqs on non-boot
CPUs not create their initial workers leading to boot failures.  Fix
it by making it a cpu_notifier.

J. Bruce Fields [Fri, 6 Aug 2010 22:00:33 +0000]
nfsd: don't allow setting maxblksize after svc created

It's harmless to set this after the server is created, but also
ineffective, since the value is only used at the time of
svc_create_pooled().  So fail the attempt, in keeping with the pattern
set by write_versions, write_{lease,grace}time and write_recoverydir.

(This could break userspace that tried to write to nfsd/max_block_size
between setting up sockets and starting the server.  However, such code
wouldn't have worked anyway, and I don't know of any examples--rpc.nfsd
in nfs-utils, probably the only user of the interface, doesn't do that.)

nfsd: initialize nfsd versions before creating svc

Commit 59db4a0c102e0de226a3395dbf25ea51bf845937 "nfsd: move more into
nfsd_startup()" inadvertently moved nfsd_versions after
nfsd_create_svc().  On older distributions using an rpc.nfsd that does
not explicitly set the list of nfsd versions, this results in
svc-create_pooled() being called with an empty versions array.  The
resulting incomplete initialization leads to a NULL dereference in
svc_process_common() the first time a client accesses the server.

Move nfsd_reset_versions() back before the svc_create_pooled(); this
time, put it closer to the svc_create_pooled() call, to make this
mistake more difficult in the future.

Boaz Harrosh [Tue, 29 Jun 2010 11:33:55 +0000]
nfsd41: Fix a crash when a callback is retried

If a callback is retried at nfsd4_cb_recall_done() due to
some error, the returned rpc reply crashes here:

@@ -514,6 +514,7 @@ decode_cb_sequence(struct xdr_stream *xdr, struct nfsd4_cb_sequence *res,
  u32 dummy;
  __be32 *p;

 + BUG_ON(!res);
  if (res->cbs_minorversion == 0)
  return 0;

[BUG_ON added for demonstration]

This is because the nfsd4_cb_done_sequence() has NULLed out
the task->tk_msg.rpc_resp pointer.

Also eventually the rpc would use the new slot without making
sure it is free by calling nfsd41_cb_setup_sequence().

This problem was introduced by a 4.1 protocol addition patch:
[0421b5c5] nfsd41: Backchannel: Implement cb_recall over NFSv4.1

Which was overlooking the possibility of an RPC callback retries.
For not-4.1 case redoing the _prepare is harmless.

9 years agoconsole: Fix compilation regression
Jason Wessel [Fri, 6 Aug 2010 20:36:47 +0000]
console: Fix compilation regression

A regression of building without CONFIG_HW_CONSOLE was introduced with
commit b45cfba4e9005d64d419718e7ff7f7cab44c1994 (vt,console,kdb:
implement atomic console enter/leave functions).

ERROR: "con_debug_enter" [drivers/serial/kgdboc.ko] undefined!
ERROR: "vc_cons" [drivers/serial/kgdboc.ko] undefined!
ERROR: "fg_console" [drivers/serial/kgdboc.ko] undefined!
ERROR: "con_debug_leave" [drivers/serial/kgdboc.ko] undefined!

When there is no HW console the con_debug_enter and con_debug_leave
functions should have no code.
