dm mpath: hp retry if not ready

This patch adds retries to the hp hardware handler, and utilizes the
MP_RETRY flag of dm-multipath.  For now in the hp handler, if we get a
pg_init completed with a check condition we just assume we can retry the
pg_init command.  We make this assumption because of incomplete data on
specific check condition code of the HP hardware, and because testing
has shown the HP path initialization command to be idempotent.

multipath map feature.

12 years agodm mpath: add retry pg init
Dave Wysochanski [Fri, 19 Oct 2007 21:47:53 +0000]
dm mpath: add retry pg init

This patch allows a failed path group initialisation command to be retried.

It adds a generic MP_RETRY flag and a "pg_init_retries" feature to
device-mapper multipath which limits the number of retries.

1. A hw handler sends a path initialization command to the storage and
the command completes with an error code indicating the command
should be retried.

2. The hardware handler calls dm_pg_init_complete() with MP_RETRY
set in err_flags to ask the dm multipath core to retry.

3. If the retry limit has not been exceeded, pg_init() is retried.
Otherwise fail_path() is called.

If you are using the userspace multipath-tools or device-mapper-multipath
package, you can set pg_init_retries in the 'device' section of your
/etc/multipath.conf file. For example:

features                "2 pg_init_retries 7"

The number of PG retries attempted is reported in the 'dmsetup status' output.

12 years agodm: fix thaw_bdev
Jun'ichi Nomura [Fri, 19 Oct 2007 21:38:43 +0000]
dm: fix thaw_bdev

This patch fixes a bd_mount_sem counter corruption bug in device-mapper.

thaw_bdev() should be called only when freeze_bdev() was called for the
device.
Otherwise, thaw_bdev() will up bd_mount_sem and corrupt the semaphore counter.
struct block_device with the corrupted semaphore may remain in slab cache
and be reused later.

Attached patch will fix it by calling unlock_fs() instead.
unlock_fs() will determine whether it should call thaw_bdev()
by checking the device is frozen or not.

Easy reproducer is:
  #!/bin/sh
  while [ 1 ]; do
     dmsetup --notable create a
     dmsetup --nolockfs suspend a
     dmsetup remove a
  done

It's not easy to see the effect of corrupted semaphore.
So I have tested with putting printk below in bdev_alloc_inode():
        if (atomic_read(&ei->bdev.bd_mount_sem.count) != 1)
                printk(KERN_DEBUG "Incorrect semaphore count = %d (%p)\n",
                        atomic_read(&ei->bdev.bd_mount_sem.count),
                        &ei->bdev);

Without the patch, I saw something like:
 Incorrect semaphore count = 17 (f2ab91c0)

With the patch, the message didn't appear.

The bug was introduced in 2.6.16 with this bug fix:

commit d9dde59ba03095e526640988c0fedd75e93bc8b7
Date:   Fri Feb 24 13:04:24 2006 -0800

    [PATCH] dm: missing bdput/thaw_bdev at removal

    Need to unfreeze and release bdev otherwise the bdev inode with
    inconsistent state is reused later and cause problem.

and backported to 2.6.15.5.

It occurs only in free_dev(), which is called only when the dm device is
removed.  The buggy code is executed only if md->suspended_bdev is
non-NULL and that can happen only when the device was suspended without
noflush.

12 years agodm io:ctl use constant struct size
Milan Broz [Fri, 19 Oct 2007 21:38:36 +0000]
dm io:ctl use constant struct size

Make size of dm_ioctl struct always 312 bytes on all supported
architectures.

This change retains compatibility with already-compiled code because
it uses an embedded offset to locate the payload that follows the
structure.

On 64-bit architectures there is no change at all; on 32-bit
we are increasing the size of dm-ioctl from 308 to 312 bytes.

Currently with 32-bit userspace / 64-bit kernel on x86_64
some ioctls (including rename, message) are incorrectly rejected
by the comparison against 'param + 1'.  This breaks userspace
lvrename and multipath 'fail_if_no_path' changes, for example.

(BTW Device-mapper uses its own versioning and ignores the ioctl
size bits.  Only the generic ioctl compat code on mixed arches
checks them, and that will continue to accept both sizes for now,
but we intend to list 308 as deprecated and eventually remove it.)

We cannot zero the user page in nfs_mark_uptodate() any more, since

  a) We'd be modifying the page without holding the page lock
  b) We can race with other updates of the page, most notably
     because of the call to nfs_wb_page() in nfs_writepage_setup().

12 years agokbuild: fix first module build
Sam Ravnborg [Fri, 19 Oct 2007 20:20:02 +0000]
kbuild: fix first module build

When building a specific module before doing a total kernel
build it failed because $(MORVERDIR) were missing.
Creating the MODVERDIR explicit (independent of KBUILD_MODULES)
fixed this. As a side-effect the MODVERDIR will be created
also for a non-module build - but no harm done by that.

to provide a default CROSS_COMPILE value,

Sample usage:

of its own parsing for the crashkernel command line.

Because the total amount of System RAM must be known when calling this
function, efi_memmap_init() is modified to return its accumulated total_memory
variable.

Also, the crashkernel handling is moved in an own function in

    crashkernel=512M-2G:64M,2G-:128M

The motivation comes from distributors that configure their crashkernel
command line automatically with some configuration tool (YaST, you know ;)).
Of course that tool knows the value of System RAM, but if the user removes
RAM, then the system becomes unbootable or at least unusable and error
handling is very difficult.

This series implements this change for i386, x86_64, ia64, ppc64 and sh.  That
should be all platforms that support kdump in current mainline.  I tested all
platforms except sh due to the lack of a sh processor.

This patch:

This is the generic part of the patch.  It adds a parse_crashkernel() function
in kernel/kexec.c that is called by the architecture specific code that
actually reserves the memory.  That function takes the whole command line and
looks itself for "crashkernel=" in it.

If there are multiple occurrences, then the last one is taken.  The advantage
is that if you have a bootloader like lilo or elilo which allows you to append
a command line parameter but not to remove one (like in GRUB), then you can
add another crashkernel value for testing at the boot command line and this
one overwrites the command line in the configuration then.

This is a patch that fixes the way idr_find() used to be called in ipc_lock():

The changes are:
  . in ipc_ids, the mutex has been changed into a reader/writer semaphore.
  . ipc_lock() now takes the mutex as a reader during the idr_find().
  . a new routine ipc_lock_down() has been defined: it doesn't take the
    mutex, assuming that it is being held by the caller. This is the routine

12 years agohotplug cpu: migrate a task within its cpuset
Cliff Wickman [Fri, 19 Oct 2007 06:40:46 +0000]
hotplug cpu: migrate a task within its cpuset

When a cpu is disabled, move_task_off_dead_cpu() is called for tasks that have
been running on that cpu.

Currently, such a task is migrated:
 1) to any cpu on the same node as the disabled cpu, which is both online
    and among that task's cpus_allowed
 2) to any cpu which is both online and among that task's cpus_allowed

It is typical of a multithreaded application running on a large NUMA system to
have its tasks confined to a cpuset so as to cluster them near the memory that
they share.  Furthermore, it is typical to explicitly place such a task on a
specific cpu in that cpuset.  And in that case the task's cpus_allowed
includes only a single cpu.

This patch would insert a preference to migrate such a task to some cpu within
its cpuset (and set its cpus_allowed to its entire cpuset).

With this patch, migrate the task to:
 1) to any cpu on the same node as the disabled cpu, which is both online
    and among that task's cpus_allowed
 2) to any online cpu within the task's cpuset
 3) to any cpu which is both online and among that task's cpus_allowed

In order to do this, move_task_off_dead_cpu() must make a call to
cpuset_cpus_allowed_locked(), a new subset of cpuset_cpus_allowed(), that will
not block.  (name change - per Oleg's suggestion)

Calls are made to cpuset_lock() and cpuset_unlock() in migration_call() to set
the cpuset mutex during the whole migrate_live_tasks() and
migrate_dead_tasks() procedure.

Isolate the explicit usage of signal->pgrp

The pgrp field is not used widely around the kernel so it is now marked as
deprecated with appropriate comment.

The initialization of INIT_SIGNALS is trimmed because
a) they are set to 0 automatically;
b) gcc cannot properly initialize two anonymous (the second one
   is the one with the session) unions. In this particular case
   to make it compile we'd have to add some field initialized
   right before the .pgrp.

This is the same patch as the 1ec320afdc9552c92191d5f89fcd1ebe588334ca one
(from Cedric), but for the pgrp field.

Some progress report:

We have to deprecate the pid, tgid, session and pgrp fields on struct
task_struct and struct signal_struct.  The session and pgrp are already
deprecated.  The tgid value is close to being such - the worst known usage
in in fs/locks.c and audit code.  The pid field deprecation is mainly
blocked by numerous printk-s around the kernel that print the tsk->pid to
log.

Because of compile errors that may occur after bit changes if asm/bitops.h is
included directly without e.g.  linux/kernel.h which includes linux/bitops.h,
forbid direct inclusion of asm/bitops.h.  Thanks to Adrian Bunk.
