Natalie Protasevich [Thu, 23 Jun 2005 07:08:29 +0000]
[PATCH] x86: avoid wasting IRQs for PCI devices

I have submitted the patch for x86_64, this is submission for i386.

The patch changes the way IRQs are handed out to PCI devices.  Currently,
each I/O APIC pin gets associated with an IRQ, no matter if the pin is used
or not.  This imposes severe limitation on systems that have designs that
employ many I/O APICs, only utilizing couple lines of each, such as P64H2
chipset.  It is used in ES7000, and currently, there is no way to boot the
system with more that 9 I/O APICs.

The simple change below allows to boot a system with say 64 (or more) I/O
APICs, each providing 1 slot, which otherwise impossible because of the IRQ
gaps created for unused lines on each I/O APIC.  It does not resolve the
problem with number of devices that exceeds number of possible IRQs, but
eases up a tension for IRQs on any large system with potentually large
number of devices.

[PATCH] i386: never block forced SIGSEGV

This problem was first noticed on PPC and has already been fixed there.
But the exact same issue applies to other platforms in the same way.  The
signal blocking for sa_mask and the handled signal takes place after the
handler setup.  When the stack is bogus, the handler setup forces a
SIGSEGV.  But then this will be blocked, and returning to user mode will
fault again and iterate.  This patch fixes the problem by checking whether
signal handler setup failed, and not doing the signal-blocking if so.  This
copies what was done in the ppc code.  I think all architectures' signal
handler setup code follows this pattern and needs the change.

14 years ago[PATCH] Platform SMIs and their interferance with tsc based delay calibration
Venkatesh Pallipadi [Thu, 23 Jun 2005 07:08:13 +0000]
[PATCH] Platform SMIs and their interferance with tsc based delay calibration

Issue:
Current tsc based delay_calibration can result in significant errors in
loops_per_jiffy count when the platform events like SMIs
(System Management Interrupts that are non-maskable) are present. This could
lead to potential kernel panic(). This issue is becoming more visible with 2.6
kernel (as default HZ is 1000) and on platforms with higher SMI handling
latencies. During the boot time, SMIs are mostly used by BIOS (for things
like legacy keyboard emulation).

Description:
The psuedocode for current delay calibration with tsc based delay looks like
(0) Estimate a value for loops_per_jiffy
(1) While (loops_per_jiffy estimate is accurate enough)
(2)   wait for jiffy transition (jiffy1)
(3)   Note down current tsc (tsc1)
(4)   loop until tsc becomes tsc1 + loops_per_jiffy
(5)   check whether jiffy changed since jiffy1 or not and refine
loops_per_jiffy estimate

Consider the following cases
Case 1:
If SMIs happen between (2) and (3) above, we can end up with a
loops_per_jiffy value that is too low. This results in shorted delays and
kernel can panic () during boot (Mostly at IOAPIC timer initialization
timer_irq_works() as we don't have enough timer interrupts in a specified
interval).

Case 2:
If SMIs happen between (3) and (4) above, then we can end up with a
loops_per_jiffy value that is too high. And with current i386 code, too
high lpj value (greater than 17M) can result in a overflow in
delay.c:__const_udelay() again resulting in shorter delay and panic().

Solution:
The patch below makes the calibration routine aware of asynchronous events
like SMIs. We increase the delay calibration time and also identify any
significant errors (greater than 12.5%) in the calibration and notify it to
user.

Patch below changes both i386 and x86-64 architectures to use this
new and improved calibrate_delay_direct() routine.

Ian Campbell [Thu, 23 Jun 2005 07:08:10 +0000]
[PATCH] use ${CROSS_COMPILE}installkernel in arch/*/boot/install.sh

The attached patch causes the various arch specific install.sh scripts to
look for ${CROSS_COMPILE}installkernel rather than just installkernel (in
both /sbin/ and ~/bin/ where the script already did this).  This allows you
to have e.g.  arm-linux-installkernel as a handy way to install on your
cross target.  It also prevents the script picking up on the host
/sbin/installkernel which causes the script to fall through and do the
install itself (which is what I actually use myself, with $INSTALL_PATH
set).

I don't believe it causes back-compatibility problems since calling the
host installkernel was never likely to work or be what you wanted when
cross compiling anyway.  If $CROSS_COMPILE isn't set then nothing changes.

I only use ARM and i386 myself but I figured it couldn't hurt to do the
whole lot.  I've cc'd those who I hope are the arch maintainers for files
that I've touched.

[PATCH] sparsemem hotplug base

Make sparse's initalization be accessible at runtime.  This allows sparse
mappings to be created after boot in a hotplug situation.

This patch is separated from the previous one just to give an indication how
much of the sparse infrastructure is *just* for hotplug memory.

The section_mem_map doesn't really store a pointer.  It stores something that
is convenient to do some math against to get a pointer.  It isn't valid to
just do *section_mem_map, so I don't think it should be stored as a pointer.

There are a couple of things I'd like to store about a section.  First of all,
the fact that it is !NULL does not mean that it is present.  There could be
such a combination where section_mem_map *is* NULL, but the math gets you
properly to a real mem_map.  So, I don't think that check is safe.

Since we're storing 32-bit-aligned structures, we have a few bits in the
bottom of the pointer to play with.  Use one bit to encode whether there's
really a mem_map there, and the other one to tell whether there's a valid
section there.  We need to distinguish between the two because sometimes
there's a gap between when a section is discovered to be present and when we
can get the mem_map for it.

beginning of the node, but having sparsemem's non-contiguous mem_map[]s inside
of a node made it necessary to change.

Mike Kravetz recently wrote a patch which made the NUMA code accept some new
kinds of layouts.  The system's memory was laid out like this, with node 0's
memory in two pieces: one before and one after node 1's memory:

Node 0: +++++     +++++
Node 1:      +++++

Previous behavior before Mike's patch was to assign nodes like this:

Node 0: 00000     XXXXX
Node 1:      11111

Where the 'X' areas were simply thrown away.  The new behavior was to make the
pg_data_t span node 0 across all of its areas, including areas that are really
node 1's: Node 0: 000000000000000 Node 1: 11111

This wastes a little bit of mem_map space, but ends up being OK, and more
fully utilizes the system's memory.  memmap_init_zone() initializes all of the
"struct page"s for node 0, even for the "hole", but those never get used,
because there is no pfn_to_page() that resolves to those pages.  However, only
calling pfn_to_page() once, memmap_init_zone() always uses the pages that were
allocated for node0->node_mem_map because:

struct page *start = pfn_to_page(start_pfn);
// effectively start = &node->node_mem_map[0]
for (page = start; page < (start + size); page++) {
init_page_here();...
page++;
}

Slow, and wasteful, but generally harmless.

But, modify that to call pfn_to_page() for each loop iteration (like sparsemem
does):

for (pfn = start_pfn; pfn < < (start_pfn + size); pfn++++) {
page = pfn_to_page(pfn);
}

And you end up trying to initialize node 1's pages too early, along with bogus
data from node 0.  This patch checks for those weird layouts and declines to
touch the pages, making the more frequent pfn_to_page() calls OK to do.

14 years ago[PATCH] sparsemem memory model
Andy Whitcroft [Thu, 23 Jun 2005 07:07:54 +0000]
[PATCH] sparsemem memory model

Sparsemem abstracts the use of discontiguous mem_maps[].  This kind of
mem_map[] is needed by discontiguous memory machines (like in the old
CONFIG_DISCONTIGMEM case) as well as memory hotplug systems.  Sparsemem
replaces DISCONTIGMEM when enabled, and it is hoped that it can eventually
become a complete replacement.

A significant advantage over DISCONTIGMEM is that it's completely separated
from CONFIG_NUMA.  When producing this patch, it became apparent in that NUMA
and DISCONTIG are often confused.

Another advantage is that sparse doesn't require each NUMA node's ranges to be
contiguous.  It can handle overlapping ranges between nodes with no problems,
where DISCONTIGMEM currently throws away that memory.

Sparsemem uses an array to provide different pfn_to_page() translations for
each SECTION_SIZE area of physical memory.  This is what allows the mem_map[]
to be chopped up.

In order to do quick pfn_to_page() operations, the section number of the page
is encoded in page->flags.  Part of the sparsemem infrastructure enables
sharing of these bits more dynamically (at compile-time) between the
page_zone() and sparsemem operations.  However, on 32-bit architectures, the
number of bits is quite limited, and may require growing the size of the
page->flags type in certain conditions.  Several things might force this to
occur: a decrease in the SECTION_SIZE (if you want to hotplug smaller areas of
memory), an increase in the physical address space, or an increase in the
number of used page->flags.

One thing to note is that, once sparsemem is present, the NUMA node
information no longer needs to be stored in the page->flags.  It might provide
speed increases on certain platforms and will be stored there if there is
room.  But, if out of room, an alternate (theoretically slower) mechanism is
used.

This patch introduces CONFIG_FLATMEM.  It is used in almost all cases where
there used to be an #ifndef DISCONTIG, because SPARSEMEM and DISCONTIGMEM
often have to compile out the same areas of code.

14 years ago[PATCH] Introduce new Kconfig option for NUMA or DISCONTIG
Dave Hansen [Thu, 23 Jun 2005 07:07:47 +0000]
[PATCH] Introduce new Kconfig option for NUMA or DISCONTIG

There is some confusion that arose when working on SPARSEMEM patch between
what is needed for DISCONTIG vs. NUMA.

Multiple pg_data_t's are needed for DISCONTIGMEM or NUMA, independently.
All of the current NUMA implementations require an implementation of
DISCONTIG.  Because of this, quite a lot of code which is really needed for
NUMA is actually under DISCONTIG #ifdefs.  For SPARSEMEM, we changed some
of these #ifdefs to CONFIG_NUMA, but that broke the DISCONTIG=y and NUMA=n
case.

Introducing this new NEED_MULTIPLE_NODES config option allows code that is
needed for both NUMA or DISCONTIG to be separated out from code that is
specific to DISCONTIG.

One great advantage of this approach is that it doesn't require every
architecture to be converted over.  All of the current implementations
should "just work", only the ones implementing SPARSEMEM will have to be
fixed up.

The change to free_area_init() makes it work inside, or out of the new
config option.

the NUMA code without the presence of DISCONTIGMEM.  The sparsemem patches
use CONFIG_FLATMEM in generic code, so this patch is a requirement before
applying them.

Three of these are i386-only, but one of them reorganizes the macros
used to manage the space in page->flags, and will affect all platforms.
There are analogous patches to the i386 ones for ppc64, ia64, and
x86_64, but those will be submitted by the normal arch maintainers.

14 years ago[PATCH] remove non-DISCONTIG use of pgdat->node_mem_map
Dave Hansen [Thu, 23 Jun 2005 07:07:37 +0000]
[PATCH] remove non-DISCONTIG use of pgdat->node_mem_map

This patch effectively eliminates direct use of pgdat->node_mem_map outside
of the DISCONTIG code.  On a flat memory system, these fields aren't
currently used, neither are they on a sparsemem system.

There was also a node_mem_map(nid) macro on many architectures.  Its use
along with the use of ->node_mem_map itself was not consistent.  It has
been removed in favor of two new, more explicit, arch-independent macros:

pgdat_page_nr(pgdat, pagenr)
nid_page_nr(nid, pagenr)

I called them "pgdat" and "nid" because we overload the term "node" to mean
"NUMA node", "DISCONTIG node" or "pg_data_t" in very confusing ways.  I
believe the newer names are much clearer.

These macros can be overridden in the sparsemem case with a theoretically
slower operation using node_start_pfn and pfn_to_page(), instead.  We could
make this the only behavior if people want, but I don't want to change too
much at once.  One thing at a time.

This patch removes more code than it adds.

Compile tested on alpha, alpha discontig, arm, arm-discontig, i386, i386
generic, NUMAQ, Summit, ppc64, ppc64 discontig, and x86_64.  Full list
here: http://sr71.net/patches/2.6.12/2.6.12-rc1-mhp2/configs/

14 years ago[X25]: Fast select with no restriction on response
Shaun Pereira [Thu, 23 Jun 2005 05:16:17 +0000]
[X25]: Fast select with no restriction on response

This patch is a follow up to patch 1 regarding "Selective Sub Address
matching with call user data".  It allows use of the Fast-Select-Acceptance
optional user facility for X.25.

This patch just implements fast select with no restriction on response
(NRR).  What this means (according to ITU-T Recomendation 10/96 section
6.16) is that if in an incoming call packet, the relevant facility bits are
set for fast-select-NRR, then the called DTE can issue a direct response to
the incoming packet using a call-accepted packet that contains
call-user-data.  This patch allows such a response.

The called DTE can also respond with a clear-request packet that contains
call-user-data.  However, this feature is currently not implemented by the
patch.

How is Fast Select Acceptance used?
By default, the system does not allow fast select acceptance (as before).
To enable a response to fast select acceptance,
After a listen socket in created and bound as follows
socket(AF_X25, SOCK_SEQPACKET, 0);
bind(call_soc, (struct sockaddr *)&locl_addr, sizeof(locl_addr));
but before a listen system call is made, the following ioctl should be used.
ioctl(call_soc,SIOCX25CALLACCPTAPPRV);
Now the listen system call can be made
listen(call_soc, 4);
After this, an incoming-call packet will be accepted, but no call-accepted
packet will be sent back until the following system call is made on the socket
that accepts the call
ioctl(vc_soc,SIOCX25SENDCALLACCPT);
The network (or cisco xot router used for testing here) will allow the
application server's call-user-data in the call-accepted packet,
provided the call-request was made with Fast-select NRR.

14 years ago[X25]: Selective sub-address matching with call user data.
Shaun Pereira [Thu, 23 Jun 2005 05:15:01 +0000]
[X25]: Selective sub-address matching with call user data.

From: Shaun Pereira <spereira@tusc.com.au>

This is the first (independent of the second) patch of two that I am
working on with x25 on linux (tested with xot on a cisco router).  Details
are as follows.

Current state of module:

A server using the current implementation (2.6.11.7) of the x25 module will
accept a call request/ incoming call packet at the listening x.25 address,
from all callers to that address, as long as NO call user data is present
in the packet header.

If the server needs to choose to accept a particular call request/ incoming
call packet arriving at its listening x25 address, then the kernel has to
allow a match of call user data present in the call request packet with its
own.  This is required when multiple servers listen at the same x25 address
and device interface.  The kernel currently matches ALL call user data, if
present.

Current Changes:

This patch is a follow up to the patch submitted previously by Andrew
Hendry, and allows the user to selectively control the number of octets of
call user data in the call request packet, that the kernel will match.  By
default no call user data is matched, even if call user data is present.
To allow call user data matching, a cudmatchlength > 0 has to be passed
into the kernel after which the passed number of octets will be matched.
Otherwise the kernel behavior is exactly as the original implementation.

This patch also ensures that as is normally the case, no call user data
will be present in the Call accepted / call connected packet sent back to
the caller

Future Changes on next patch:

There are cases however when call user data may be present in the call
accepted packet.  According to the X.25 recommendation (ITU-T 10/96)
section 5.2.3.2 call user data may be present in the call accepted packet
provided the fast select facility is used.  My next patch will include this
fast select utility and the ability to send up to 128 octets call user data
in the call accepted packet provided the fast select facility is used.  I
am currently testing this, again with xot on linux and cisco.

Jeff Moyer [Thu, 23 Jun 2005 05:05:59 +0000]
[NETPOLL]: allow multiple netpoll_clients to register against one interface

This patch provides support for registering multiple netpoll clients to the
same network device.  Only one of these clients may register an rx_hook,
however.  In practice, this restriction has not been problematic.  It is
worth mentioning, though, that the current design can be easily extended to
allow for the registration of multiple rx_hooks.

The basic idea of the patch is that the rx_np pointer in the netpoll_info
structure points to the struct netpoll that has rx_hook filled in.  Aside
from this one case, there is no need for a pointer from the struct
net_device to an individual struct netpoll.

A lock is introduced to protect the setting and clearing of the np_rx
pointer.  The pointer will only be cleared upon netpoll client module
removal, and the lock should be uncontested.

[NETPOLL]: Introduce a netpoll_info struct

This patch introduces a netpoll_info structure, which the struct net_device
will now point to instead of pointing to a struct netpoll.  The reason for
this is two-fold: 1) fields such as the rx_flags, poll_owner, and poll_lock
should be maintained per net_device, not per netpoll;  and 2) this is a first
step in providing support for multiple netpoll clients to register against the
same net_device.

The struct netpoll is now pointed to by the netpoll_info structure.  As
such, the previous behaviour of the code is preserved.

[PATCH] NFSv4: Fix up races in nfs4_proc_setattr()

 If we do not hold a valid stateid that is open for writes, there is little
 point in doing an extra open of the file, as the RFC does not appear to
 mandate this...

 Make setattr use the correct stateid if we're holding mandatory byte
 range locks.

Olivier Galibert [Wed, 22 Jun 2005 17:16:29 +0000]
[PATCH] NFS: Hide NFS server-generated readdir cookies from userland

 NFSv3 currently returns the unsigned 64-bit cookie directly to
 userspace. The following patch causes the kernel to generate
 loff_t offsets for the benefit of userland.
 The current server-generated READDIR cookie is cached in the
 nfs_open_context instead of in filp->f_pos, so we still end up work
 correctly under directory insertions/deletion.

Chuck Lever [Wed, 22 Jun 2005 17:16:28 +0000]
[PATCH] RPC: kick off socket connect operations faster

 Make the socket transport kick the event queue to start socket connects
 immediately.  This should improve responsiveness of applications that are
 sensitive to slow mount operations (like automounters).

 We are now also careful to cancel the connect worker before destroying
 the xprt.  This eliminates a race where xprt_destroy can finish before
 the connect worker is even allowed to run.

 Test-plan:
 Destructive testing (unplugging the network temporarily).  Connectathon
 with UDP and TCP.  Hard-code impossibly small connect timeout.

Chuck Lever [Wed, 22 Jun 2005 17:16:28 +0000]
[PATCH] RPC: TCP reconnects are too slow

 When the network layer reports a connection close, the RPC task
 waiting to reconnect should be notified so it can retry immediately
 instead of waiting for the normal connection establishment timeout.

 This reverts a change made in 2.6.6 as part of adding client support
 for RPC over TCP socket idle timeouts.

 Test-plan:
 Destructive testing with NFS over TCP mounts.
