10 years agosched: Add new wakeup preemption mode: WAKEUP_RUNNING

shorter on avg. It sets next buddy to be sure we actually run the task
we preempted for.

not via LB_BIAS, newidle balancing should look for where
there is load _now_, not where there was load 2 ticks ago.

Peter Zijlstra [Thu, 10 Sep 2009 11:50:02 +0000]
sched: Merge select_task_rq_fair() and sched_balance_self()

The problem with wake_idle() is that is doesn't respect things like
cpu_power, which means it doesn't deal well with SMT nor the recent
RT interaction.

To cure this, it needs to do what sched_balance_self() does, which
leads to the possibility of merging select_task_rq_fair() and
sched_balance_self().

Modify sched_balance_self() to:

  - update_shares() when walking up the domain tree,
    (it only called it for the top domain, but it should
     have done this anyway), which allows us to remove
    this ugly bit from try_to_wake_up().

  - do wake_affine() on the smallest domain that contains
    both this (the waking) and the prev (the wakee) cpu for
    WAKE invocations.

Then use the top-down balance steps it had to replace wake_idle().

This leads to the dissapearance of SD_WAKE_BALANCE and
SD_WAKE_IDLE_FAR, with SD_WAKE_IDLE replaced with SD_BALANCE_WAKE.

SD_WAKE_AFFINE needs SD_BALANCE_WAKE to be effective.

Touch all topology bits to replace the old with new SD flags --
platforms might need re-tuning, enabling SD_BALANCE_WAKE
conditionally on a NUMA distance seems like a good additional
feature, magny-core and small nehalem systems would want this
enabled, systems with slow interconnects would not.

initialized yet.
However our save stack backtrace code relies on it. If the pointer
isn't initialized the saved backtrace will have zero entries.
lockdep however relies (correctly) on the fact that that cannot
happen.
A write access to some random memory region is the result.

[S390] fix recursive locking on page_table_lock

Suzuki Poulose reported the following recursive locking bug on s390:

Here is the stack trace : (see Appendix I for more info)

  [<0000000000406ed6>] _spin_lock+0x52/0x94
  [<0000000000103bde>] crst_table_free+0x14e/0x1a4

  [<00000200001642b2>] 0x200001642b2

The page_table_lock is already acquired in __pmd_alloc (mm/memory.c) and
it tries to populate the pud/pgd with a new pmd allocated. If another
thread populates it before we get a chance, we free the pmd using
pmd_free().

On s390x, pmd_free(even pud_free ) is #defined to crst_table_free(),
which acquires the page_table_lock to protect the crst_table index updates.

Hence this ends up in a recursive locking of the page_table_lock.

The solution suggested by Dave Hansen is to use a new spin lock in the mmu
context to protect the access to the crst_list and the pgtable_list.

[S390] xpram: Remove checksum validation for suspend/resume

Currently in the suspend process checksums for the XPRAM partitions are

if the checksums are still the same. If this is not the case, a kernel panic

device, because in this case after the checksum has been created, the
memory image is written to XPRAM and therefore the contents of the suspend
partition is changed. In order to allow XPRAM to be used as suspend device,
this patch removes the checksum validation.

[S390] vmur: Invalid allocation sequence for vmur class

The vmur class is allocated after the CCW driver is registered
and it is destroyed before the CCW driver is unregistered.
This is not the correct sequence, because the vmur class can be used
via driver core callbacks that are triggered during the CCW driver
deregistration. For Example:

1. vmur device is online
2. vmur module is unloaded

This leads to the following function call stack:

    <4> [<0000000000387286>] device_destroy+0x36/0x5c
    <4> [<000003e000209714>] ur_set_offline_force+0x9c/0x10c [vmur]
    <4> [<000003e00020a928>] ur_remove+0x64/0xbc [vmur]

    <4> [<000003e00020ad5a>] ur_exit+0x52/0x84 [vmur]

In device_destroy() the vmur class is used. Since it is already freed,
this can lead to a kernel panic.

To fix the problem, the vmur class has to be allocated before the CCW
driver is registered and destroyed after the CCW driver has ben unregistered.
