11 years agoperfcounters: implement "counter inheritance"
Ingo Molnar [Fri, 12 Dec 2008 12:49:45 +0000]
perfcounters: implement "counter inheritance"

Impact: implement new performance feature

Counter inheritance can be used to run performance counters in a workload,
transparently - and pipe back the counter results to the parent counter.

Inheritance for performance counters works the following way: when creating
a counter it can be marked with the .inherit=1 flag. Such counters are then
'inherited' by all child tasks (be they fork()-ed or clone()-ed). These
counters get inherited through exec() boundaries as well (except through
setuid boundaries).

The counter values get added back to the parent counter(s) when the child
task(s) exit - much like stime/utime statistics are gathered. So inherited
counters are ideal to gather summary statistics about an application's
behavior via shell commands, without having to modify that application.

The timec.c command utilizes counter inheritance:

  http://redhat.com/~mingo/perfcounters/timec.c

Sample output:

   $ ./timec -e 1 -e 3 -e 5 ls -lR /usr/include/ >/dev/null

   Performance counter stats for 'ls':

           163516953 instructions

11 years agoconsole ASCII glyph 1:1 mapping
Ingo Brueckl [Wed, 10 Dec 2008 22:35:00 +0000]
console ASCII glyph 1:1 mapping

For the console, there is a 1:1 mapping of glyphs which cannot be found
in the current font.  This seems to be meant as a kind of 'emergency
fallback' for fonts without unicode mapping which otherwise would
display nothing readable on the screen.

At the moment it affects all chars for which no substitution character
is defined.  In particular this means that for all chars (>= 128) where
there is no iso88591-1/unicode character (e.g.  control character area)
you'll get the very strange 1:1 mapping of the (cp437) graphics card
glyphs.

I'm pretty sure that the 1:1 mapping should only affect strict ASCII
code characters, i.e.  chars < 128.

The patch limits the mapping as it probably was meant anyway.

unicode table for cp437

There is a major bug in the cp437 to unicode translation table.  Char
0x7c is mapped to U+00a5 which is the Yen sign and wrong.  The right
mapping is U+00a6 (broken bar).

Furthermore, a mapping for U+00b4 (a widely used character) is missing
even though easily possible.

The patch fixes these, as well as it provides a few other useful
mappings.

The changes are as follows:

  0x0f (enhancement) enables a sort of currency symbol
  0x27 (bug) enables a sort of acute accent which is a widely used character

  0x7c (major bug) corrects mapping

This patch adds the "counter groups" abstraction.

Groups of counters behave much like normal 'single' counters, with a
few semantic and behavioral extensions on top of that.

A counter group is created by creating a new counter with the open()
syscall's group-leader group_fd file descriptor parameter pointing
to another, already existing counter.

Groups of counters are scheduled in and out in one atomic group, and
they are also roundrobin-scheduled atomically.

Counters that are member of a group can also record events with an
(atomic) extended timestamp that extends to all members of the group,
if the record type is set to PERF_RECORD_GROUP.

Ingo Molnar [Wed, 10 Dec 2008 11:33:23 +0000]
perf counters: restructure the API

Impact: clean up new API

Thorough cleanup of the new perf counters API, we now get clean separation
of the various concepts:

 - introduce perf_counter_hw_event to separate out the event source details

 - move special type flags into separate attributes: PERF_COUNT_NMI,
   PERF_COUNT_RAW

 - extend the type to u64 and reserve it fully to the architecture in the
   raw type case.

And make use of all these changes in the core and x86 perfcounters code.

Also change the syscall signature to:

  asmlinkage int sys_perf_counter_open(

struct perf_counter_hw_event *hw_event_uptr __user,
pid_t pid,
int cpu,
int group_fd);

( Note that group_fd is unused for now - it's reserved for the counter
  groups abstraction. )

11 years agofix mapping_writably_mapped()
Hugh Dickins [Wed, 10 Dec 2008 20:48:52 +0000]
fix mapping_writably_mapped()

Lee Schermerhorn noticed yesterday that I broke the mapping_writably_mapped
test in 2.6.7!  Bad bad bug, good good find.

The i_mmap_writable count must be incremented for VM_SHARED (just as
i_writecount is for VM_DENYWRITE, but while holding the i_mmap_lock)
when dup_mmap() copies the vma for fork: it has its own more optimal
version of __vma_link_file(), and I missed this out.  So the count
was later going down to 0 (dangerous) when one end unmapped, then
wrapping negative (inefficient) when the other end unmapped.

The only impact on x86 would have been that setting a mandatory lock on
a file which has at some time been opened O_RDWR and mapped MAP_SHARED
(but not necessarily PROT_WRITE) across a fork, might fail with -EAGAIN
when it should succeed, or succeed when it should fail.

But those architectures which rely on flush_dcache_page() to flush
userspace modifications back into the page before the kernel reads it,
may in some cases have skipped the flush after such a fork - though any
repetitive test will soon wrap the count negative, in which case it will
flush_dcache_page() unnecessarily.

Fix would be a two-liner, but mapping variable added, and comment moved.

11 years agoMN10300: Discard low-priority Tx interrupts when closing an on-chip serial port
Akira Takeuchi [Wed, 10 Dec 2008 12:43:24 +0000]
MN10300: Discard low-priority Tx interrupts when closing an on-chip serial port

Discard low-prioriy Tx interrupts when closing an MN10300 on-chip serial port.

The MN10300 on-chip serial port uses three interrupts to manage its serial
ports:

 (1) A very high priority interrupt that drives virtual DMA for Rx.

 (2) A very high priority interrupt that drives virtual DMA for Tx.

 (3) A normal priority virtual interrupt that does the normal UART interrupt
     stuff and is shared between Rx and Tx.

mn10300_serial_stop_tx() only disables the high priority Tx interrupt.  It
doesn't also disable the normal priority one because it is shared with Rx.

However, the high priority interrupt may interrupt local_irq_disabled()
sections, and so may have queued up a low priority virtual interrupt whilst the
UART driver is asking for the Tx interrupt to be disabled.

The result of this can be an oops when we try to process the interrupt in
mn10300_serial_transmit_interrupt() as port->uart.info and port->uart.info->tty
may have gone away.

To deal with this, if either of those pointers is NULL, we make sure the
high-priority Tx interrupt is disabled and discard the interrupt.  The low
priority interrupt is disabled by the mn10300_serial_pic irq_chip table.

inotify: fix IN_ONESHOT unmount event watcher

On umount two event will be dispatched to watcher:

1: inotify_dev_queue_event(.., IN_UNMOUNT,..)
2: remove_watch(watch, dev)
    ->inotify_dev_queue_event(.., IN_IGNORED, ..)

But if watcher has IN_ONESHOT bit set then the watcher will be released
inside first event.  Which result in accessing invalid object later.  IMHO
it is not pure regression.  This bug wasn't triggered while initial

11 years agomm: no get_user/put_user while holding mmap_sem in do_pages_stat?
Brice Goglin [Tue, 9 Dec 2008 21:14:23 +0000]
mm: no get_user/put_user while holding mmap_sem in do_pages_stat?

Since commit 2f007e74bb85b9fc4eab28524052161703300f1a, do_pages_stat()
gets the page address from user-space and puts the corresponding status
back while holding the mmap_sem for read.  There is no need to hold
mmap_sem there while some page-faults may occur.

This patch adds a temporary address and status buffer so as to only
hold mmap_sem while working on these kernel buffers.  This is
implemented by extracting do_pages_stat_array() out of do_pages_stat().

fbcon: fix workqueue shutdown

Add a call to cancel_work_sync() in fbcon_exit() to cancel any pending
work in the fbcon workqueue.

The current implementation of fbcon_exit() sets the fbcon workqueue
function info->queue.func to NULL, but does not assure that there is no
work pending when it does so.  On occasion, depending on system timing,
there will still be pending work in the queue when fbcon_exit() is
called.  This results in a null pointer deference when run_workqueue()
tries to call the queue's work function.

Fixes errors on shutdown similar to these:

KOSAKI Motohiro [Tue, 9 Dec 2008 21:14:16 +0000]
mm: remove UP version of lru_add_drain_all()

Currently, lru_add_drain_all() has two version.
  (1) use schedule_on_each_cpu()
  (2) don't use schedule_on_each_cpu()

Gerald Schaefer reported it doesn't work well on SMP (not NUMA) S390
machine.

  offline_pages() calls lru_add_drain_all() followed by drain_all_pages().
  While drain_all_pages() works on each cpu, lru_add_drain_all() only runs
  on the current cpu for architectures w/o CONFIG_NUMA. This let us run
  into the BUG_ON(!PageBuddy(page)) in __offline_isolated_pages() during
  memory hotplug stress test on s390. The page in question was still on the
  pcp list, because of a race with lru_add_drain_all() and drain_all_pages()
  on different cpus.

Actually, Almost machine has CONFIG_UNEVICTABLE_LRU=y. Then almost machine use
(1) version lru_add_drain_all although the machine is UP.

Then this ifdef is not valueable.
simple removing is better.

    commit 1f7c14c62ce63805f9574664a6c6de3633d4a354
    Author: Mingming Cao <cmm@us.ibm.com>
    Date:   Thu Oct 9 12:50:59 2008 -0400

        percpu counter: clean up percpu_counter_sum_and_set()

Before this patch we had the following:

percpu_counter_sum(): return the percpu_counter's value

percpu_counter_sum_and_set(): return the percpu_counter's value, copying
that value into the central value and zeroing the per-cpu counters before
returning.

After this patch, percpu_counter_sum_and_set() has gone, and
percpu_counter_sum() gets the old percpu_counter_sum_and_set()
functionality.

Problem is, as Eric points out, the old percpu_counter_sum_and_set()
functionality was racy and wrong.  It zeroes out counters on "other" cpus,
without holding any locks which will prevent races agaist updates from
those other CPUS.

This patch reverts 1f7c14c62ce63805f9574664a6c6de3633d4a354.  This means
that percpu_counter_sum_and_set() still has the race, but
percpu_counter_sum() does not.

Note that this is not a simple revert - ext4 has since started using
percpu_counter_sum() for its dirty_blocks counter as well.

Note that this revert patch changes percpu_counter_sum() semantics.

Before the patch, a call to percpu_counter_sum() will bring the counter's
central counter mostly up-to-date, so a following percpu_counter_read()
will return a close value.

After this patch, a call to percpu_counter_sum() will leave the counter's
central accumulator unaltered, so a subsequent call to
percpu_counter_read() can now return a significantly inaccurate result.

If there is any code in the tree which was introduced after
e8ced39d5e8911c662d4d69a342b9d053eaaac4e was merged, and which depends
upon the new percpu_counter_sum() semantics, that code will break.

11 years agotracehook: exec double-reporting fix
Roland McGrath [Wed, 10 Dec 2008 03:36:38 +0000]
tracehook: exec double-reporting fix

The patch 6341c39 "tracehook: exec" introduced a small regression in
2.6.27 regarding binfmt_misc exec event reporting.  Since the reporting
is now done in the common search_binary_handler() function, an exec
of a misc binary will result in two (or possibly multiple) exec events
being reported, instead of just a single one, because the misc handler
contains a recursive call to search_binary_handler.

To add to the confusion, if PTRACE_O_TRACEEXEC is not active, the multiple
SIGTRAP signals will in fact cause only a single ptrace intercept, as the
signals are not queued.  However, if PTRACE_O_TRACEEXEC is on, the debugger
will actually see multiple ptrace intercepts (PTRACE_EVENT_EXEC).

The test program included below demonstrates the problem.

This change fixes the bug by calling tracehook_report_exec() only in the
outermost search_binary_handler() call (bprm->recursion_depth == 0).

The additional change to restore bprm->recursion_depth after each binfmt
load_binary call is actually superfluous for this bug, since we test the
value saved on entry to search_binary_handler().  But it keeps the use of
of the depth count to its most obvious expected meaning.  Depending on what
binfmt handlers do in certain cases, there could have been false-positive
tests for recursion limits before this change.

    /* Test program using PTRACE_O_TRACEEXEC.
       This forks and exec's the first argument with the rest of the arguments,
       while ptrace'ing.  It expects to see one PTRACE_EVENT_EXEC stop and
       then a successful exit, with no other signals or events in between.

       Test for kernel doing two PTRACE_EVENT_EXEC stops for a binfmt_misc exec:

PCIe: ASPM: Break out of endless loop waiting for PCI config bits to switch

Makes a Compaq 6735s boot reliably again.  It used to hang in the loop
on some boots.  Give the link one second to train, otherwise break out
of the loop and reset the previously set clock bits.

PCI: stop leaking 'slot_name' in pci_create_slot

In pci_create_slot(), the local variable 'slot_name' is allocated by
make_slot_name(), but never freed. We never use it after passing it to
the kobject core, so we should free it upon function exit.

MIPS: Better than nothing implementation of PCI mmap to fix X.

Certain X11 servers such as the SIS server will only work if PCI mmap is
implemented.  This patch implements PCI mmap but to be on the same side
so close to a release it only supports uncached mappings so performance
will not be optimal for some uses such as framebuffers.

[IA64] SN: prevent IRQ retargetting in request_irq()

With the introduction of the generic affinity autoselector,
irq_select_affinity(), IRQs are now being retargetted,
using a default mask, via the request_irq() path.
This results in all IRQs targetted at CPU 0.

SN Altix assigns affinity in the SN PROM, and does not
expect that to be changed as part of request_irq().

Set the IRQ_AFFINITY_SET flag to prevent
request_irq() from resetting affinity.

11 years agoieee1394: node manager causes up to ~3.25s delay in freezing tasks
Nigel Cunningham [Tue, 9 Dec 2008 11:40:20 +0000]
ieee1394: node manager causes up to ~3.25s delay in freezing tasks

The firewire nodemanager function "nodemgr_host_thread" contains a loop
that calls try_to_freeze near the top of the loop, but then delays for
up to 3.25 seconds (plus time to do work) before getting back to the top
of the loop. When starting a cycle post-boot, this doesn't seem to bite,
but it is causing a noticeable delay at boot time, when freezing
processes prior to starting to read the image.

The following patch adds invocation of try_to_freeze to the subloops
that are used in the body of this function. With these additions, the
time to freeze when starting to resume at boot time is virtually zero.
I'm no expert on firewire, and so don't know that we shouldn't check
the return value and jump back to the top of the loop or such like after
being frozen, but I submit it for your consideration.

Signed-off-by: Nigel Cunningham <nigel@tuxonice.net>

The delay until nodemgr freezes was up to 0.25s (plus time for node
probes) in Linux 2.6.27 and older and up to 3.25s (plus ~) since Linux
2.6.28-rc1, hence much more noticeable.

try_to_freeze() without any jump is correct.  The surrounding code in
the respective loops will catch whether another bus reset happens during
the freeze and handle it.

sched: CPU remove deadlock fix

Impact: fix possible deadlock in CPU hot-remove path

This patch fixes a possible deadlock scenario in the CPU remove path.
migration_call grabs rq->lock, then wakes up everything on rq->migration_queue
with the lock held. Then one of the tasks on the migration queue ends up
calling tg_shares_up which then also tries to acquire the same rq->lock.
