11 years agogeneric irqs: handle failure of irqchip->set_type in setup_irq
Uwe Kleine-König [Thu, 24 Jul 2008 04:28:54 +0000]
generic irqs: handle failure of irqchip->set_type in setup_irq

set_type returns an int indicating success or failure, but up to now
setup_irq ignores that.

In my case this resulted in a machine hang:

gpio-keys requested IRQF_TRIGGER_RISING | IRQF_TRIGGER_FALLING, but
arm/ns9xxx can only trigger on one direction so set_type didn't touch
the configuration which happens do default to a level sensitiveness and
returned -EINVAL.  setup_irq ignored that and unmasked the irq.  This
resulted in an endless triggering of the gpio-key interrupt service
routine which effectively killed the machine.

With this patch applied setup_irq propagates the error to the caller.

Note that before in the case

chip && !chip->set_type && !chip->name

a NULL pointer was feed to printk.  This is fixed, too.

remove the v850 port

Trying to compile the v850 port brings many compile errors, one of them exists
since at least kernel 2.6.19.

There also seems to be noone willing to bring this port back into a usable
state.

This patch therefore removes the v850 port.

If anyone ever decides to revive the v850 port the code will still be
available from older kernels, and it wouldn't be impossible for the port to

Shaohua Li [Thu, 24 Jul 2008 04:28:41 +0000]
pm: acpi hibernation: utilize hardware signature

ACPI defines a hardware signature.  BIOS calculates the signature according to
hardware configure and if hardware changes while hibernated, the signature
will change.  In that case, S4 resume should fail.

Still, there may be systems on which this mechanism does not work correctly,
so it is better to provide a workaround for them.  For this reason, add a new
switch to the acpi_sleep= command line argument allowing one to disable
hardware signature checking.

11 years agopm: boot time suspend selftest
David Brownell [Thu, 24 Jul 2008 04:28:33 +0000]
pm: boot time suspend selftest

Boot-time test for system suspend states (STR or standby).  The generic
RTC framework triggers wakeup alarms, which are used to exit those states.

  - Measures some aspects of suspend time ... this uses "jiffies" until
    someone converts it to use a timebase that works properly even while
    timer IRQs are disabled.

  - Triggered by a command line parameter.  By default nothing even
    vaguely troublesome will happen, but "test_suspend=mem" will give
    you a brief STR test during system boot.  (Or you may need to use
    "test_suspend=standby" instead, if your hardware needs that.)

This isn't without problems.  It fires early enough during boot that for
example both PCMCIA and MMC stacks have misbehaved.  The workaround in
those cases was to boot without such media cards inserted.

Andrew G. Morgan [Thu, 24 Jul 2008 04:28:25 +0000]
security: filesystem capabilities refactor kernel code

To date, we've tried hard to confine filesystem support for capabilities
to the security modules.  This has left a lot of the code in
kernel/capability.c in a state where it looks like it supports something
that filesystem support for capabilities actually suppresses when the LSM
security/commmoncap.c code runs.  What is left is a lot of code that uses
sub-optimal locking in the main kernel

With this change we refactor the main kernel code and make it explicit
which locks are needed and that the only remaining kernel races in this
area are associated with non-filesystem capability code.

11 years agosecurity: protect legacy applications from executing with insufficient privilege
Andrew G. Morgan [Thu, 24 Jul 2008 04:28:24 +0000]
security: protect legacy applications from executing with insufficient privilege

When cap_bset suppresses some of the forced (fP) capabilities of a file,
it is generally only safe to execute the program if it understands how to
recognize it doesn't have enough privilege to work correctly.  For legacy
applications (fE!=0), which have no non-destructive way to determine that
they are missing privilege, we fail to execute (EPERM) any executable that
requires fP capabilities, but would otherwise get pP' < fP.  This is a
fail-safe permission check.

For some discussion of why it is problematic for (legacy) privileged
applications to run with less than the set of capabilities requested for
them, see:

 http://userweb.kernel.org/~morgan/sendmail-capabilities-war-story.html

With this iteration of this support, we do not include setuid-0 based
privilege protection from the bounding set.  That is, the admin can still
(ab)use the bounding set to suppress the privileges of a setuid-0 program.

11 years agomm: fix ever-decreasing swap priority
Hugh Dickins [Thu, 24 Jul 2008 04:28:23 +0000]
mm: fix ever-decreasing swap priority

Vegard Nossum has noticed the ever-decreasing negative priority in a
swapon /swapoff loop, which eventually would misprioritize when int wraps
positive.  Not worth spending much code on, but probably better fixed.

It's easy to handle the swapping on and off of just one area, but there's
not much point if a pair or more still misbehave.  To handle the general
case, swapoff should compact negative priorities, keeping them always from
-1 to -MAX_SWAPFILES.  That's a change, but should cause no regression,
since these negative (unspecified) priorities are disjoint from the the
positive specified priorities 0 to 32767.

One small functional difference, which seems appropriate: when swapoff
fails to free all swap from a negative priority area, that area is now
reinserted at lowest priority, rather than at its original priority.

In moving down swapon's setting of priority, I notice that an area is
visible to /proc/swaps when it has swap_map set, yet that was being set
before all the visible fields were properly filled in: corrected.

mm: make CONFIG_MIGRATION available w/o CONFIG_NUMA

We'd like to support CONFIG_MEMORY_HOTREMOVE on s390, which depends on
CONFIG_MIGRATION.  So far, CONFIG_MIGRATION is only available with NUMA
support.

This patch makes CONFIG_MIGRATION selectable for architectures that define
ARCH_ENABLE_MEMORY_HOTREMOVE.  When MIGRATION is enabled w/o NUMA, the
kernel won't compile because migrate_vmas() does not know about
vm_ops->migrate() and vma_migratable() does not know about policy_zone.
To fix this, those two functions can be restricted to '#ifdef CONFIG_NUMA'
because they are not being used w/o NUMA.  vma_migratable() is moved over
from migrate.h to mempolicy.h.

11 years agomemory-hotplug: add sysfs removable attribute for hotplug memory remove
Badari Pulavarty [Thu, 24 Jul 2008 04:28:19 +0000]
memory-hotplug: add sysfs removable attribute for hotplug memory remove

Memory may be hot-removed on a per-memory-block basis, particularly on
POWER where the SPARSEMEM section size often matches the memory-block
size.  A user-level agent must be able to identify which sections of
memory are likely to be removable before attempting the potentially
expensive operation.  This patch adds a file called "removable" to the
memory directory in sysfs to help such an agent.  In this patch, a memory
block is considered removable if;

o It contains only MOVABLE pageblocks
o It contains only pageblocks with free pages regardless of pageblock type

On the other hand, a memory block starting with a PageReserved() page will
never be considered removable.  Without this patch, the user-agent is
forced to choose a memory block to remove randomly.

Sample output of the sysfs files:

./memory/memory0/removable: 0
./memory/memory1/removable: 0
./memory/memory2/removable: 0

11 years agomemory hotplug: allocate usemap on the section with pgdat
Yasunori Goto [Thu, 24 Jul 2008 04:28:15 +0000]
memory hotplug: allocate usemap on the section with pgdat

Usemaps are allocated on the section which has pgdat by this.

Because usemap size is very small, many other sections usemaps are
allocated on only one page.  If a section has usemap, it can't be removed
until removing other sections.  This dependency is not desirable for
memory removing.

Pgdat has similar feature.  When a section has pgdat area, it must be the
last section for removing on the node.  So, if section A has pgdat and
section B has usemap for section A, Both sections can't be removed due to
dependency each other.

To solve this issue, this patch collects usemap on same section with pgdat
as much as possible.  If other sections doesn't have any dependency, this
section will be able to be removed finally.

PAGE_ALIGN(): correctly handle 64-bit values on 32-bit architectures

On 32-bit architectures PAGE_ALIGN() truncates 64-bit values to the 32-bit
boundary. For example:

always returns a value < 4GB even if size is greater than 4GB.

The problem resides in PAGE_MASK definition (from include/asm-x86/page.h for
example):

#define PAGE_SHIFT      12
#define PAGE_SIZE       (_AC(1,UL) << PAGE_SHIFT)
#define PAGE_MASK       (~(PAGE_SIZE-1))
...
#define PAGE_ALIGN(addr)       (((addr)+PAGE_SIZE-1)&PAGE_MASK)

The "~" is performed on a 32-bit value, so everything in "and" with
PAGE_MASK greater than 4GB will be truncated to the 32-bit boundary.
Using the ALIGN() macro seems to be the right way, because it uses
typeof(addr) for the mask.

Also move the PAGE_ALIGN() definitions out of include/asm-*/page.h in
include/linux/mm.h.

mm: add alloc_pages_exact() and free_pages_exact()

alloc_pages_exact() is similar to alloc_pages(), except that it allocates
the minimum number of pages to fulfill the request.  This is useful if you
want to allocate a very large buffer that is slightly larger than an even
power-of-two number of pages.  In that case, alloc_pages() will waste a

I have a video driver that wants to allocate a 5MB buffer.  alloc_pages()
wiill waste 3MB of physically-contiguous memory.

bootmem: respect goal more likely

The old node-agnostic code tried allocating on all nodes starting from the
one with the lowest range.  alloc_bootmem_core retried without the goal if
it could not satisfy it and so the goal was only respected at all when it
happened to be on the first (lowest page numbers) node (or theoretically
if allocations failed on all nodes before to the one holding the goal).

Introduce a non-panicking helper that starts allocating from the node
holding the goal and falls back only after all thes tries failed, thus
moving the goal fallback code out of alloc_bootmem_core.

Make all other allocation functions benefit from this new helper.

Note that the free/reserve semantics become more strict: while the prior
code took basically arbitrary range arguments and marked the PFNs that
happen to fall into that range, the new code requires node-specific ranges
to be completely on the node.  The node-agnostic requests might span node
boundaries as long as the nodes are contiguous.

hugetlb: quota is not freed for unused reserved private huge pages

With shared reservations (and now also with private reservations), we reserve
huge pages at mmap time.  We also account for the mapping against fs quota to
prevent a reservation from being preempted by quota exhaustion.

When testing with the libhugetlbfs test suite, I found a problem with quota
accounting.  FS quota for allocated pages is handled correctly but we are not
releasing quota for private pages that were reserved but never allocated.  Do
this in hugetlb_vm_op_close() at the same time as unused page reservations are
released.

Mel Gorman [Thu, 24 Jul 2008 04:27:58 +0000]
hugetlb: fix a hugepage reservation check for MAP_SHARED

When removing a huge page from the hugepage pool for a fault the system checks
to see if the mapping requires additional pages to be reserved, and if it does
whether there are any unreserved pages remaining.  If not, the allocation
fails without even attempting to get a page.  In order to determine whether to
apply this check we call vma_has_private_reserves() which tells us if this vma
is MAP_PRIVATE and is the owner.  This incorrectly triggers the remaining
reservation test for MAP_SHARED mappings which prevents allocation of the
final page in the pool even though it is reserved for this mapping.

In reality we only want to check this for MAP_PRIVATE mappings where the
process is not the original mapper.  Replace vma_has_private_reserves() with
vma_has_reserves() which indicates whether further reserves are required, and
update the caller.

x86: add hugepagesz option on 64-bit

Add an hugepagesz=...  option similar to IA64, PPC etc.  to x86-64.

This finally allows to select GB pages for hugetlbfs in x86 now that all
the infrastructure is in place.

hugetlb: support boot allocate different sizes

Make some infrastructure changes to allow boot-time allocation of
different hugepage page sizes.

- move all basic hstate initialisation into hugetlb_add_hstate
- create a new function hugetlb_hstate_alloc_pages() to do the
  actual initial page allocations. Call this function early in
  order to allocate giant pages from bootmem.
- Check for multiple hugepages= parameters

11 years agohugetlb: support larger than MAX_ORDER
Andi Kleen [Thu, 24 Jul 2008 04:27:47 +0000]
hugetlb: support larger than MAX_ORDER

This is needed on x86-64 to handle GB pages in hugetlbfs, because it is
not practical to enlarge MAX_ORDER to 1GB.

Instead the 1GB pages are only allocated at boot using the bootmem
allocator using the hugepages=...  option.

These 1G bootmem pages are never freed.  In theory it would be possible to
implement that with some complications, but since it would be a one-way
street (>= MAX_ORDER pages cannot be allocated later) I decided not to
currently.

The >= MAX_ORDER code is not ifdef'ed per architecture.  It is not very
big and the ifdef uglyness seemed not be worth it.

Known problems: /proc/meminfo and "free" do not display the memory
allocated for gb pages in "Total".  This is a little confusing for the
user.

11 years agohugetlb: new sysfs interface
Nishanth Aravamudan [Thu, 24 Jul 2008 04:27:44 +0000]
hugetlb: new sysfs interface

Provide new hugepages user APIs that are more suited to multiple hstates
in sysfs.  There is a new directory, /sys/kernel/hugepages.  Underneath
that directory there will be a directory per-supported hugepage size,
e.g.:

/sys/kernel/hugepages/hugepages-64kB
/sys/kernel/hugepages/hugepages-16384kB
/sys/kernel/hugepages/hugepages-16777216kB

corresponding to 64k, 16m and 16g respectively.  Within each
hugepages-size directory there are a number of files, corresponding to the
tracked counters in the hstate, e.g.:

/sys/kernel/hugepages/hugepages-64/nr_hugepages
/sys/kernel/hugepages/hugepages-64/nr_overcommit_hugepages
/sys/kernel/hugepages/hugepages-64/free_hugepages
/sys/kernel/hugepages/hugepages-64/resv_hugepages
/sys/kernel/hugepages/hugepages-64/surplus_hugepages

Of these files, the first two are read-write and the latter three are
read-only.  The size of the hugepage being manipulated is trivially
deducible from the enclosing directory and is always expressed in kB (to
match meminfo).

11 years agohugetlbfs: per mount huge page sizes
Andi Kleen [Thu, 24 Jul 2008 04:27:43 +0000]
hugetlbfs: per mount huge page sizes

Add the ability to configure the hugetlb hstate used on a per mount basis.

- Add a new pagesize= option to the hugetlbfs mount that allows setting
  the page size
- This option causes the mount code to find the hstate corresponding to the
  specified size, and sets up a pointer to the hstate in the mount's
  superblock.
- Change the hstate accessors to use this information rather than the
  global_hstate they were using (requires a slight change in mm/memory.c
  so we don't NULL deref in the error-unmap path -- see comments).

to supporting multiple hugetlbfs page sizes at once.

- Rather than a single hstate, we now have an array, with an iterator
- default_hstate continues to be the struct hstate which we use by default
- Add functions for architectures to register new hstates

11 years agohugetlb: modular state for hugetlb page size
Andi Kleen [Thu, 24 Jul 2008 04:27:41 +0000]
hugetlb: modular state for hugetlb page size

The goal of this patchset is to support multiple hugetlb page sizes.  This
is achieved by introducing a new struct hstate structure, which
encapsulates the important hugetlb state and constants (eg.  huge page
size, number of huge pages currently allocated, etc).

The hstate structure is then passed around the code which requires these
fields, they will do the right thing regardless of the exact hstate they
are operating on.

This patch adds the hstate structure, with a single global instance of it
(default_hstate), and does the basic work of converting hugetlb to use the
hstate.

Future patches will add more hstate structures to allow for different
hugetlbfs mounts to have different page sizes.
