7 years agotmpfs: convert mem_cgroup shmem to radix-swap
Hugh Dickins [Wed, 3 Aug 2011 23:21:24 +0000]
tmpfs: convert mem_cgroup shmem to radix-swap

Remove mem_cgroup_shmem_charge_fallback(): it was only required when we
had to move swappage to filecache with GFP_NOWAIT.

Remove the GFP_NOWAIT special case from mem_cgroup_cache_charge(), by
moving its call out from shmem_add_to_page_cache() to two of thats three
callers.  But leave it doing mem_cgroup_uncharge_cache_page() on error:
although asymmetrical, it's easier for all 3 callers to handle.

These two changes would also be appropriate if anyone were to start
using shmem_read_mapping_page_gfp() with GFP_NOWAIT.

Remove mem_cgroup_get_shmem_target(): mc_handle_file_pte() can test
radix_tree_exceptional_entry() to get what it needs for itself.

7 years agotmpfs: convert shmem_getpage_gfp to radix-swap
Hugh Dickins [Wed, 3 Aug 2011 23:21:24 +0000]
tmpfs: convert shmem_getpage_gfp to radix-swap

Convert shmem_getpage_gfp(), the engine-room of shmem, to expect page or
swap entry returned from radix tree by find_lock_page().

Whereas the repetitive old method proceeded mainly under info->lock,
dropping and repeating whenever one of the conditions needed was not
met, now we can proceed without it, leaving shmem_add_to_page_cache() to
check for a race.

This way there is no need to preallocate a page, no need for an early
radix_tree_preload(), no need for mem_cgroup_shmem_charge_fallback().

Move the error unwinding down to the bottom instead of repeating it
throughout.  ENOSPC handling is a little different from before: there is
no longer any race between find_lock_page() and finding swap, but we can
arrive at ENOSPC before calling shmem_recalc_inode(), which might
occasionally discover freed space.

Be stricter to check i_size before returning.  info->lock is used for
little but alloced, swapped, i_blocks updates.  Move i_blocks updates
out from under the max_blocks check, so even an unlimited size=0 mount
can show accurate du.

tmpfs: convert shmem_unuse_inode to radix-swap

Convert shmem_unuse_inode() to use a lockless gang lookup of the radix
tree, searching for matching swap.

This is somewhat slower than the old method: because of repeated radix
tree descents, because of copying entries up, but probably most because
the old method noted and skipped once a vector page was cleared of swap.
Perhaps we can devise a use of radix tree tagging to achieve that later.

shmem_add_to_page_cache() uses shmem_radix_tree_replace() to compensate
for the lockless lookup by checking that the expected entry is in place,
under lock.  It is not very satisfactory to be copying this much from
add_to_page_cache_locked(), but I think easier to sell than insisting
that every caller of add_to_page_cache*() go through the extras.

tmpfs: convert shmem_truncate_range to radix-swap

Disable the toy swapping implementation in shmem_writepage() - it's hard
to support two schemes at once - and convert shmem_truncate_range() to a
lockless gang lookup of swap entries along with pages, freeing both.

Since the second loop tightens its noose until all entries of either
kind have been squeezed out (and we shall make sure that there's not an
instant when neither is visible), there is no longer a need for yet
another pass below.

shmem_radix_tree_replace() compensates for the lockless lookup by
checking that the expected entry is in place, under lock, before
replacing it.  Here it just deletes, but will be used in later patches
to substitute swap entry for page or page for swap entry.

7 years agotmpfs: demolish old swap vector support
Hugh Dickins [Wed, 3 Aug 2011 23:21:20 +0000]
tmpfs: demolish old swap vector support

The maximum size of a shmem/tmpfs file has been limited by the maximum
size of its triple-indirect swap vector.  With 4kB page size, maximum
filesize was just over 2TB on a 32-bit kernel, but sadly one eighth of
that on a 64-bit kernel.  (With 8kB page size, maximum filesize was just
over 4TB on a 64-bit kernel, but 16TB on a 32-bit kernel,
MAX_LFS_FILESIZE being then more restrictive than swap vector layout.)

It's a shame that tmpfs should be more restrictive than ramfs, and this
limitation has now been noticed.  Add another level to the swap vector?
No, it became obscure and hard to maintain, once I complicated it to
make use of highmem pages nine years ago: better choose another way.

Surely, if 2.4 had had the radix tree pagecache introduced in 2.5, then
tmpfs would never have invented its own peculiar radix tree: we would
have fitted swap entries into the common radix tree instead, in much the
same way as we fit swap entries into page tables.

And why should each file have a separate radix tree for its pages and
for its swap entries? The swap entries are required precisely where and
when the pages are not.  We want to put them together in a single radix
tree: which can then avoid much of the locking which was needed to
prevent them from being exchanged underneath us.

This also avoids the waste of memory devoted to swap vectors, first in
the shmem_inode itself, then at least two more pages once a file grew
beyond 16 data pages (pages accounted by df and du, but not by memcg).
Allocated upfront, to avoid allocation when under swapping pressure, but
pure waste when CONFIG_SWAP is not set - I have never spattered around
the ifdefs to prevent that, preferring this move to sharing the common
radix tree instead.

There are three downsides to sharing the radix tree.  One, that it binds
tmpfs more tightly to the rest of mm, either requiring knowledge of swap
entries in radix tree there, or duplication of its code here in shmem.c.
I believe that the simplications and memory savings (and probable higher
performance, not yet measured) justify that.

Two, that on HIGHMEM systems with SWAP enabled, it's the lowmem radix
nodes that cannot be freed under memory pressure - whereas before it was
the less precious highmem swap vector pages that could not be freed.
I'm hoping that 64-bit has now been accessible for long enough, that the
highmem argument has grown much less persuasive.

Three, that swapoff is slower than it used to be on tmpfs files, since
it's using a simple generic mechanism not tailored to it: I find this
noticeable, and shall want to improve, but maybe nobody else will
notice.

So...  now remove most of the old swap vector code from shmem.c.  But,
for the moment, keep the simple i_direct vector of 16 pages, with simple
accessors shmem_put_swap() and shmem_get_swap(), as a toy implementation
to help mark where swap needs to be handled in subsequent patches.

7 years agomm: let swap use exceptional entries
Hugh Dickins [Wed, 3 Aug 2011 23:21:19 +0000]
mm: let swap use exceptional entries

If swap entries are to be stored along with struct page pointers in a
radix tree, they need to be distinguished as exceptional entries.

Most of the handling of swap entries in radix tree will be contained in
shmem.c, but a few functions in filemap.c's common code need to check
for their appearance: find_get_page(), find_lock_page(),
find_get_pages() and find_get_pages_contig().

So as not to slow their fast paths, tuck those checks inside the
existing checks for unlikely radix_tree_deref_slot(); except for
find_lock_page(), where it is an added test.  And make it a BUG in
find_get_pages_tag(), which is not applied to tmpfs files.

A part of the reason for eliminating shmem_readpage() earlier, was to
minimize the places where common code would need to allow for swap
entries.

The swp_entry_t known to swapfile.c must be massaged into a slightly
different form when stored in the radix tree, just as it gets massaged
into a pte_t when stored in page tables.

In an i386 kernel this limits its information (type and page offset) to
30 bits: given 32 "types" of swapfile and 4kB pagesize, that's a maximum
swapfile size of 128GB.  Which is less than the 512GB we previously
allowed with X86_PAE (where the swap entry can occupy the entire upper
32 bits of a pte_t), but not a new limitation on 32-bit without PAE; and
there's not a new limitation on 64-bit (where swap filesize is already
limited to 16TB by a 32-bit page offset).  Thirty areas of 128GB is
probably still enough swap for a 64GB 32-bit machine.

Provide swp_to_radix_entry() and radix_to_swp_entry() conversions, and
enforce filesize limit in read_swap_header(), just as for ptes.

7 years agoradix_tree: exceptional entries and indices
Hugh Dickins [Wed, 3 Aug 2011 23:21:18 +0000]
radix_tree: exceptional entries and indices

A patchset to extend tmpfs to MAX_LFS_FILESIZE by abandoning its
peculiar swap vector, instead keeping a file's swap entries in the same
radix tree as its struct page pointers: thus saving memory, and
simplifying its code and locking.

This patch:

The radix_tree is used by several subsystems for different purposes.  A
major use is to store the struct page pointers of a file's pagecache for
memory management.  But what if mm wanted to store something other than
page pointers there too?

The low bit of a radix_tree entry is already used to denote an indirect
pointer, for internal use, and the unlikely radix_tree_deref_retry()
case.

Define the next bit as denoting an exceptional entry, and supply inline
functions radix_tree_exception() to return non-0 in either unlikely
case, and radix_tree_exceptional_entry() to return non-0 in the second
case.

If a subsystem already uses radix_tree with that bit set, no problem: it
does not affect internal workings at all, but is defined for the
convenience of those storing well-aligned pointers in the radix_tree.

The radix_tree_gang_lookups have an implicit assumption that the caller
can deduce the offset of each entry returned e.g.  by the page->index of
a struct page.  But that may not be feasible for some kinds of item to
be stored there.

radix_tree_gang_lookup_slot() allow for an optional indices argument,
output array in which to return those offsets.  The same could be added
to other radix_tree_gang_lookups, but for now keep it to the only one
for which we need it.

zone_statistics(), but it never gets there as gfp_allowed_mask is not
wide enough and masks out the flag early in the allocation path.

The result is an accounting glitch where successful NUMA allocations
by-agent are not properly attributed as local.

Increase __GFP_BITS_SHIFT so that it includes __GFP_OTHER_NODE.

When send_cpu_listeners() finds the orphaned listener it marks it as

   changed add_del_listener(REGISTER) so that "next_cpu:" can reuse the

   right even if minor.

   Change the code to kfree() in the already-registered case, this case

7 years agofault-injection: add ability to export fault_attr in arbitrary directory
Akinobu Mita [Wed, 3 Aug 2011 23:21:01 +0000]
fault-injection: add ability to export fault_attr in arbitrary directory

init_fault_attr_dentries() is used to export fault_attr via debugfs.
But it can only export it in debugfs root directory.

Per Forlin is working on mmc_fail_request which adds support to inject
data errors after a completed host transfer in MMC subsystem.

The fault_attr for mmc_fail_request should be defined per mmc host and
export it in debugfs directory per mmc host like
/sys/kernel/debug/mmc0/mmc_fail_request.

init_fault_attr_dentries() doesn't help for mmc_fail_request.  So this
introduces fault_create_debugfs_attr() which is able to create a
directory in the arbitrary directory and replace
init_fault_attr_dentries().

thermal: make THERMAL_HWMON implementation fully internal

THERMAL_HWMON is implemented inside the thermal_sys driver and has no
effect on drivers implementing thermal zones, so they shouldn't see
anything related to it in <linux/thermal.h>.  Making the THERMAL_HWMON
implementation fully internal has two advantages beyond the cleaner
design:

* This avoids rebuilding all thermal drivers if the THERMAL_HWMON
  implementation changes, or if CONFIG_THERMAL_HWMON gets enabled or
  disabled.

* This avoids breaking the thermal kABI in these cases too, which should
  make distributions happy.

The only drawback I can see is slightly higher memory fragmentation, as
the number of kzalloc() calls will increase by one per thermal zone.  But
I doubt it will be a problem in practice, as I've never seen a system with
more than two thermal zones.

dm raid: support metadata devices

Add the ability to parse and use metadata devices to dm-raid.  Although
not strictly required, without the metadata devices, many features of
RAID are unavailable.  They are used to store a superblock and bitmap.

The role, or position in the array, of each device must be recorded in
its superblock.  This is to help with fault handling, array reshaping,
and sanity checks.  RAID 4/5/6 devices must be loaded in a specific order:
in this way, the 'array_position' field helps validate the correctness
of the mapping when it is loaded.  It can be used during reshaping to
identify which devices are added/removed.  Fault handling is impossible
without this field.  For example, when a device fails it is recorded in
the superblock.  If this is a RAID1 device and the offending device is
removed from the array, there must be a way during subsequent array
assembly to determine that the failed device was the one removed.  This
is done by correlating the 'array_position' field and the bit-field
variable 'failed_devices'.

7 years agodm snapshot: skip reading origin when overwriting complete chunk
Mikulas Patocka [Tue, 2 Aug 2011 11:32:04 +0000]
dm snapshot: skip reading origin when overwriting complete chunk

If we write a full chunk in the snapshot, skip reading the origin device
because the whole chunk will be overwritten anyway.

This patch changes the snapshot write logic when a full chunk is written.
In this case:
  1. allocate the exception
  2. dispatch the bio (but don't report the bio completion to device mapper)
  3. write the exception record
  4. report bio completed

Callbacks must be done through the kcopyd thread, because callbacks must not
race with each other.  So we create two new functions:

  dm_kcopyd_prepare_callback: allocate a job structure and prepare the callback.
  (This function must not be called from interrupt context.)

  dm_kcopyd_do_callback: submit callback.
  (This function may be called from interrupt context.)

Performance test (on snapshots with 4k chunk size):
  without the patch:
    non-direct-io sequential write (dd):    17.7MB/s
    direct-io sequential write (dd):        20.9MB/s
    non-direct-io random write (mkfs.ext2): 0.44s

  with the patch:
    non-direct-io sequential write (dd):    26.5MB/s

7 years agodm: ignore merge_bvec for snapshots when safe
Mikulas Patocka [Tue, 2 Aug 2011 11:32:04 +0000]
dm: ignore merge_bvec for snapshots when safe

Add a new flag DMF_MERGE_IS_OPTIONAL to struct mapped_device to indicate
whether the device can accept bios larger than the size its merge
function returns.  When set, use this to send large bios to snapshots
which can split them if necessary.  Snapshot I/O may be significantly
fragmented and this approach seems to improve peformance.

Before the patch, dm_set_device_limits restricted bio size to page size
if the underlying device had a merge function and the target didn't
provide a merge function.  After the patch, dm_set_device_limits
restricts bio size to page size if the underlying device has a merge
function, doesn't have DMF_MERGE_IS_OPTIONAL flag and the target doesn't
provide a merge function.

The snapshot target can't provide a merge function because when the merge
function is called, it is impossible to determine where the bio will be
remapped.  Previously this led us to impose a 4k limit, which we can
now remove if the snapshot store is located on a device without a merge
function.  Together with another patch for optimizing full chunk writes,
it improves performance from 29MB/s to 40MB/s when writing to the
filesystem on snapshot store.

If the snapshot store is placed on a non-dm device with a merge function
(such as md-raid), device mapper still limits all bios to page size.

watchdog: Fix POST failure on ASUS P5N32-E SLI and similar boards

At present the module does not unset the NO_REBOOT bit upon shutdown, this
causes the BIOS to fail the POST once and reset. During the next boot it
displays the following error message:

***** Warning: System BOOT Fail *****
Your system last boot fail or POST interrupted.
Please enter setup to load default and reboot again.
Press F1 to continue, DEL to enter SETUP

With this patch the NO_REBOOT flag will be unset on shutdown and thus stop
this failure from occurring.

Tested on 'ASUS P5N32-E SLI with BIOS revision 1801' and
          'ASUS P5N32-E SLI PLUS with BIOS revision 1502'.

7 years agooom: task->mm == NULL doesn't mean the memory was freed
Oleg Nesterov [Sat, 30 Jul 2011 14:35:02 +0000]
oom: task->mm == NULL doesn't mean the memory was freed

exit_mm() sets ->mm == NULL then it does mmput()->exit_mmap() which
frees the memory.

However select_bad_process() checks ->mm != NULL before TIF_MEMDIE,
so it continues to kill other tasks even if we have the oom-killed
task freeing its memory.

Change select_bad_process() to check ->mm after TIF_MEMDIE, but skip
the tasks which have already passed exit_notify() to ensure a zombie
with TIF_MEMDIE set can't block oom-killer. Alternatively we could
probably clear TIF_MEMDIE after exit_mmap().

In ext4_mb_init(), if the s_locality_group allocation fails it will
