notifiers: cpu: move cpu notifiers into cpu.h

We presently define all kinds of notifiers in notifier.h.  This is not
necessary at all, since different subsystems use different notifiers, they
are almost non-related with each other.

This can also save much build time.  Suppose I add a new netdevice event,
really I don't have to recompile all the source, just network related.
Without this patch, all the source will be recompiled.

I move the notify events near to their subsystem notifier registers, so
that they can be found more easily.

geode: reflect mfgpt dependency on mfd

As stated in drivers/mfd/cs5535-mfd.c, the mfd driver exposes the BARs
which then make the GPIO, MFGPT, ACPI, etc.  all visible to the system.

So the dependencies of the MFGPT stuff have changed, and most people
expect Kconfig to bring in the necessary dependencies.  Without them, the
module fails to load and most people don't understand why because the
details of the rewrite aren't captured anywhere most people who know to
look.

This dependency needs to be reflected in Kconfig.

host time and confused some programs.

This patch adds a vDSO which turns all __vdso_* calls into a system call
so that UML can trap them.

8 years agoum: reinstate kernel version in generated .config

mainmenu's prompt") made the kernel version disappear from the generated
.config file when configuring for UML.  As UML's Kconfig doesn't have a

Add a suitable mainmenu to the main UML Kconfig file to fix this.

shmem_unuse_inode() and shmem_writepage() contain a little code to cope
with pages inserted independently into the filecache, probably by a
filesystem stacked on top of tmpfs, then fed to its ->readpage() or

Unionfs was indeed experimenting with working in that way three years ago,
but I find no current examples: nowadays the stacking filesystems use vfs
interfaces to the lower filesystem.

It's now illegal: remove most of that code, adding some WARN_ON_ONCEs.

We can now simplify shmem_getpage_gfp(): there is no longer a dilemma of
filepage passed in via shmem_readpage(), then swappage found, which must
then be copied over to it.

Although at first it's tempting to replace the **pagep arg by returning
struct page *, that makes a mess of IS_ERR_OR_NULL(page)s in all the
callers, so leave as is.

Insert BUG_ON(!PageUptodate) when we find and lock page: some of the
complication came from uninitialized pages inserted into filecache prior
to readpage; but now we're in control, and only release pagelock on
filecache once it's uptodate (if an error occurs in reading back from
swap, the page remains in swapcache, never moved to filecache).

tmpfs: simplify prealloc_page

The prealloc_page handling in shmem_getpage_gfp() is unnecessarily
complicated: first simplify that before going on to filepage/swappage.

That's right, don't report ENOMEM when the preallocation fails: we may or
may not need the page.  But simply report ENOMEM once we find we do need
it, instead of dropping lock, repeating allocation, unwinding on failure
etc.  And leave the out label on the fast path, don't goto.

Fix something that looks like a bug but turns out not to be: set
PageSwapBacked on prealloc_page before its mem_cgroup_cache_charge(), as
the removed case was doing.  That's important before adding to LRU
(determines which LRU the page goes on), and does affect which path it
takes through memcontrol.c, but in the end MEM_CGROUP_CHANGE_TYPE_ SHMEM
is handled no differently from CACHE.

8 years agomm/futex: fix futex writes on archs with SW tracking of dirty & young
Benjamin Herrenschmidt [Tue, 26 Jul 2011 00:12:32 +0000]
mm/futex: fix futex writes on archs with SW tracking of dirty & young

I haven't reproduced it myself but the fail scenario is that on such
machines (notably ARM and some embedded powerpc), if you manage to hit
that futex path on a writable page whose dirty bit has gone from the PTE,
you'll livelock inside the kernel from what I can tell.

It will go in a loop of trying the atomic access, failing, trying gup to
"fix it up", getting succcess from gup, go back to the atomic access,
failing again because dirty wasn't fixed etc...

So I think you essentially hang in the kernel.

The scenario is probably rare'ish because affected architecture are
embedded and tend to not swap much (if at all) so we probably rarely hit
the case where dirty is missing or young is missing, but I think Shan has
a piece of SW that can reliably reproduce it using a shared writable
mapping & fork or something like that.

On archs who use SW tracking of dirty & young, a page without dirty is
effectively mapped read-only and a page without young unaccessible in the
PTE.

Additionally, some architectures might lazily flush the TLB when relaxing
write protection (by doing only a local flush), and expect a fault to
invalidate the stale entry if it's still present on another processor.

The futex code assumes that if the "in_atomic()" access -EFAULT's, it can
"fix it up" by causing get_user_pages() which would then be equivalent to
taking the fault.

However that isn't the case.  get_user_pages() will not call
handle_mm_fault() in the case where the PTE seems to have the right
permissions, regardless of the dirty and young state.  It will eventually
update those bits ...  in the struct page, but not in the PTE.

Additionally, it will not handle the lazy TLB flushing that can be
required by some architectures in the fault case.

Basically, gup is the wrong interface for the job.  The patch provides a
more appropriate one which boils down to just calling handle_mm_fault()
since what we are trying to do is simulate a real page fault.

The futex code currently attempts to write to user memory within a
pagefault disabled section, and if that fails, tries to fix it up using
get_user_pages().

This doesn't work on archs where the dirty and young bits are maintained
by software, since they will gate access permission in the TLB, and will
not be updated by gup().

In addition, there's an expectation on some archs that a spurious write
fault triggers a local TLB flush, and that is missing from the picture as
well.

I decided that adding those "features" to gup() would be too much for this
already too complex function, and instead added a new simpler
fixup_user_fault() which is essentially a wrapper around handle_mm_fault()
which the futex code can call.

8 years agomm: page allocator: initialise ZLC for first zone eligible for zone_reclaim
Mel Gorman [Tue, 26 Jul 2011 00:12:29 +0000]
mm: page allocator: initialise ZLC for first zone eligible for zone_reclaim

There have been a small number of complaints about significant stalls
while copying large amounts of data on NUMA machines reported on a
distribution bugzilla.  In these cases, zone_reclaim was enabled by
default due to large NUMA distances.  In general, the complaints have not
been about the workload itself unless it was a file server (in which case
the recommendation was disable zone_reclaim).

The stalls are mostly due to significant amounts of time spent scanning
the preferred zone for pages to free.  After a failure, it might fallback
to another node (as zonelists are often node-ordered rather than
zone-ordered) but stall quickly again when the next allocation attempt
occurs.  In bad cases, each page allocated results in a full scan of the
preferred zone.

Patch 1 checks the preferred zone for recent allocation failure
        which is particularly important if zone_reclaim has failed
        recently.  This avoids rescanning the zone in the near future and
        instead falling back to another node.  This may hurt node locality
        in some cases but a failure to zone_reclaim is more expensive than
        a remote access.

Patch 2 clears the zlc information after direct reclaim.
        Otherwise, zone_reclaim can mark zones full, direct reclaim can
        reclaim enough pages but the zone is still not considered for
        allocation.

This test just creates a large file mapping and writes to it linearly.
Time to completion is again reduced.

The gains are mostly down to two things.  In many cases, there is less
scanning as zone_reclaim simply gives up faster due to recent failures.
The second reason is that memory is used more efficiently.  Instead of
scanning the preferred zone every time, the allocator falls back to
another zone and uses it instead improving overall memory utilisation.

This patch: initialise ZLC for first zone eligible for zone_reclaim.

The zonelist cache (ZLC) is used among other things to record if
zone_reclaim() failed for a particular zone recently.  The intention is to
avoid a high cost scanning extremely long zonelists or scanning within the
zone uselessly.

Currently the zonelist cache is setup only after the first zone has been
considered and zone_reclaim() has been called.  The objective was to avoid
a costly setup but zone_reclaim is itself quite expensive.  If it is
failing regularly such as the first eligible zone having mostly mapped
pages, the cost in scanning and allocation stalls is far higher than the
ZLC initialisation step.

This patch initialises ZLC before the first eligible zone calls
zone_reclaim().  Once initialised, it is checked whether the zone failed
zone_reclaim recently.  If it has, the zone is skipped.  As the first zone
is now being checked, additional care has to be taken about zones marked
full.  A zone can be marked "full" because it should not have enough
unmapped pages for zone_reclaim but this is excessive as direct reclaim or
kswapd may succeed where zone_reclaim fails.  Only mark zones "full" after
zone_reclaim fails if it failed to reclaim enough pages after scanning.

8 years agomm: preallocate page before lock_page() at filemap COW
KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Tue, 26 Jul 2011 00:12:27 +0000]
mm: preallocate page before lock_page() at filemap COW

Currently we are keeping faulted page locked throughout whole __do_fault
call (except for page_mkwrite code path) after calling file system's fault
code.  If we do early COW, we allocate a new page which has to be charged
for a memcg (mem_cgroup_newpage_charge).

This function, however, might block for unbounded amount of time if memcg
oom killer is disabled or fork-bomb is running because the only way out of
the OOM situation is either an external event or OOM-situation fix.

In the end we are keeping the faulted page locked and blocking other
processes from faulting it in which is not good at all because we are
basically punishing potentially an unrelated process for OOM condition in
a different group (I have seen stuck system because of ld-2.11.1.so being
locked).

We can do test easily.

 % cgcreate -g memory:A
 % cgset -r memory.limit_in_bytes=64M A
 % cgset -r memory.memsw.limit_in_bytes=64M A
 % cd kernel_dir; cgexec -g memory:A make -j

Then, the whole system will live-locked until you kill 'make -j'
by hands (or push reboot...) This is because some important page in a
a shared library are locked.

Considering again, the new page is not necessary to be allocated
with lock_page() held. And usual page allocation may dive into
long memory reclaim loop with holding lock_page() and can cause
very long latency.

There are 3 ways.
  1. do allocation/charge before lock_page()
     Pros. - simple and can handle page allocation in the same manner.
             This will reduce holding time of lock_page() in general.
     Cons. - we do page allocation even if ->fault() returns error.

  2. do charge after unlock_page(). Even if charge fails, it's just OOM.
     Pros. - no impact to non-memcg path.
     Cons. - implemenation requires special cares of LRU and we need to modify
             page_add_new_anon_rmap()...

  3. do unlock->charge->lock again method.
     Pros. - no impact to non-memcg path.
     Cons. - This may kill LOCK_PAGE_RETRY optimization. We need to release
             lock and get it again...

This patch moves "charge" and memory allocation for COW page
before lock_page(). Then, we can avoid scanning LRU with holding
a lock on a page and latency under lock_page() will be reduced.

Then, above livelock disappears.

8 years agotmpfs: no need to use i_lock
Hugh Dickins [Tue, 26 Jul 2011 00:12:26 +0000]
tmpfs: no need to use i_lock

2.6.36's 7e496299d4d2 ("tmpfs: make tmpfs scalable with percpu_counter for
used blocks") to make tmpfs scalable with percpu_counter used
inode->i_lock in place of sbinfo->stat_lock around i_blocks updates; but
that was adverse to scalability, and unnecessary, since info->lock is
already held there in the fast paths.

Remove those uses of i_lock, and add info->lock in the three error paths
where it's then needed across shmem_free_blocks().  It's not actually
needed across shmem_unacct_blocks(), but they're so often paired that it
looks wrong to split them apart.

mm: consistent truncate and invalidate loops

Make the pagevec_lookup loops in truncate_inode_pages_range(),
invalidate_mapping_pages() and invalidate_inode_pages2_range() more
consistent with each other.

They were relying upon page->index of an unlocked page, but apologizing
for it: accept it, embrace it, add comments and WARN_ONs, and simplify the
index handling.

invalidate_inode_pages2_range() had special handling for a wrapped
page->index + 1 = 0 case; but MAX_LFS_FILESIZE doesn't let us anywhere
near there, and a corrupt page->index in the radix_tree could cause more
trouble than that would catch.  Remove that wrapped handling.

invalidate_inode_pages2_range() uses min() to limit the pagevec_lookup
when near the end of the range: copy that into the other two, although
it's less useful than you might think (it limits the use of the buffer,
rather than the indices looked up).

to use RCU page table freeing and share code with other architectures.

BTW, this is the second time this has happened, see commit 3c936465249f
("[SPARC64]: Kill pgtable quicklists and use SLAB.")

8 years agommap: fix and tidy up overcommit page arithmetic

mmap: fix and tidy up overcommit page arithmetic

- shmem pages are not immediately available, but they are not
  potentially available either, even if we swap them out, they will just
  relocate from memory into swap, total amount of immediate and
  potentially available memory is not going to be affected, so we
  shouldn't count them as potentially free in the first place.

- nr_free_pages() is not an expensive operation anymore, there is no
  need to split the decision making in two halves and repeat code.

8 years agooom: make deprecated use of oom_adj more verbose
David Rientjes [Tue, 26 Jul 2011 00:12:18 +0000]
oom: make deprecated use of oom_adj more verbose

/proc/pid/oom_adj is deprecated and scheduled for removal in August 2012
according to Documentation/feature-removal-schedule.txt.

This patch makes the warning more verbose by making it appear as a more
serious problem (the presence of a stack trace and being multiline should
attract more attention) so that applications still using the old interface
can get fixed.

Very popular users of the old interface have been converted since the oom
killer rewrite has been introduced.  udevd switched to the
/proc/pid/oom_score_adj interface for v162, kde switched in 4.6.1, and
opensshd switched in 5.7p1.

At the start of 2012, this should be changed into a WARN() to emit all
such incidents and then finally remove the tunable in August 2012 as
scheduled.

KOSAKI Motohiro [Tue, 26 Jul 2011 00:12:09 +0000]
pagewalk: don't look up vma if walk->hugetlb_entry is unused

Currently, walk_page_range() calls find_vma() every page table for walk
iteration.  but it's completely unnecessary if walk->hugetlb_entry is
unused.  And we don't have to assume find_vma() is a lightweight
operation.  So this patch checks the walk->hugetlb_entry and avoids the
find_vma() call if possible.

This patch also makes some cleanups.  1) remove ugly uninitialized_var()
and 2) #ifdef in function body.

xen/balloon: memory hotplug support for Xen balloon driver

Memory hotplug support for Xen balloon driver.  It should be mentioned
that hotplugged memory is not onlined automatically.  It should be onlined
by user through standard sysfs interface.

Memory could be hotplugged in following steps:

  1) dom0: xl mem-max <domU> <maxmem>
     where <maxmem> is >= requested memory size,

  2) dom0: xl mem-set <domU> <memory>
     where <memory> is requested memory size; alternatively memory
     could be added by writing proper value to
     /sys/devices/system/xen_memory/xen_memory0/target or
     /sys/devices/system/xen_memory/xen_memory0/target_kb on dumU,

  3) domU: for i in /sys/devices/system/memory/memory*/state; do \
             [ "`cat "$i"`" = offline ] && echo online > "$i"; done

Memory could be onlined automatically on domU by adding following line to
udev rules:

  SUBSYSTEM=="memory", ACTION=="add", RUN+="/bin/sh -c '[ -f /sys$devpath/state ] && echo online > /sys$devpath/state'"

In that case step 3 should be omitted.

mm: extend memory hotplug API to allow memory hotplug in virtual machines

This patch contains online_page_callback and apropriate functions for
registering/unregistering online page callbacks.  It allows to do some
machine specific tasks during online page stage which is required to
implement memory hotplug in virtual machines.  Currently this patch is
required by latest memory hotplug support for Xen balloon driver patch
which will be posted soon.

Additionally, originial online_page() function was splited into
following functions doing "atomic" operations:

  - __online_page_set_limits() - set new limits for memory management code,
  - __online_page_increment_counters() - increment totalram_pages and totalhigh_pages,
  - __online_page_free() - free page to allocator.

It was done to:
  - not duplicate existing code,
  - ease hotplug code devolpment by usage of well defined interface,
  - avoid stupid bugs which are unavoidable when the same code
    (by design) is developed in many places.

Vito said:

: The system has many usb disks coming and going day to day, with their
: respective bdi's having min_ratio set to 1 when inserted.  It works for

: active set of bdi's seen in /sys/class/bdi/*/min_ratio doesn't add up to
: anywhere near 100.
:
: This then leads to an unrelated starvation problem caused by write-heavy
: fuse mounts being used atop the usb disks, a problem the min_ratio setting
: at the underlying devices bdi effectively prevents.

Fix this leakage by resetting the bdi min_ratio when unregistering the
BDI.

hugetlb: add phys addr to struct huge_bootmem_page

This is needed on HIGHMEM systems - we don't always have a virtual
address so store the physical address and map it in as needed.

8 years agofs/hugetlbfs/inode.c: fix pgoff alignment checking on 32-bit
Becky Bruce [Tue, 26 Jul 2011 00:11:49 +0000]
fs/hugetlbfs/inode.c: fix pgoff alignment checking on 32-bit

This:

    vma->vm_pgoff & ~(huge_page_mask(h) >> PAGE_SHIFT)

is incorrect on 32-bit.  It causes us to & the pgoff with something that
looks like this (for a 4m hugepage): 0xfff003ff.  The mask should be
flipped and *then* shifted, to give you 0x0000_03fff.

8 years agoipc/sem.c: fix race with concurrent semtimedop() timeouts and IPC_RMID
Manfred Spraul [Tue, 26 Jul 2011 00:11:47 +0000]
ipc/sem.c: fix race with concurrent semtimedop() timeouts and IPC_RMID

If a semaphore array is removed and in parallel a sleeping task is woken
up (signal or timeout, does not matter), then the woken up task does not
wait until wake_up_sem_queue_do() is completed.  This will cause crashes,
because wake_up_sem_queue_do() will read from a stale pointer.

The fix is simple: Regardless of anything, always call get_queue_result().
This function waits until wake_up_sem_queue_do() has finished it's task.
