7 years agoperf probe: Filter out redundant inline-instances
Masami Hiramatsu [Thu, 11 Aug 2011 11:03:18 +0000]
perf probe: Filter out redundant inline-instances

With gcc4.6, some instances of concrete inlined function looks redundant
and broken, because it appears inside of a concrete instance and its
call_file and call_line are same as the original abstruct's decl_file
and decl_line respectively.

e.g.
 [  d1aa]    subprogram
             external             (flag) Yes
             name                 (strp) "add_timer"
             decl_file            (data1) 2 ;here is original
             decl_line            (data2) 847 ;line and file
             prototyped           (flag) Yes
             inline               (data1) inlined (1)
             sibling              (ref4) [  d1c6]
...
 [ 11d84]    subprogram
             abstract_origin      (ref4) [  d1aa] ; concrete instance
             low_pc               (addr) .text+0x000000000000246f <add_timer>
             high_pc              (addr) .text+0x000000000000248b <mod_timer_pending>
             frame_base           (block1)               [   0] call_frame_cfa
             sibling              (ref4) [ 11dd9]
 [ 11d9f]      formal_parameter
               abstract_origin      (ref4) [  d1b9]
               location             (data4) location list [  701b]
 [ 11da8]      inlined_subroutine
               abstract_origin      (ref4) [  d1aa] ; redundant instance
               low_pc               (addr) .text+0x000000000000247e <add_timer+0xf>
               high_pc              (addr) .text+0x0000000000002480 <add_timer+0x11>
               call_file            (data1) 2 ; call line and file
               call_line            (data2) 847 ; are same as above

Those redundant instances leads unwilling results;

e.g. find probe points inside of functions even if we specify
a function entry as below;

$ perf probe -V add_timer
Available variables at add_timer
        @<add_timer+0>
                struct timer_list*      timer
        @<add_timer+15>
                (No matched variables)

So, this filters out those redundant instances based on call-site and
decl-site information.

7 years agoperf probe: Search concrete out-of-line instances
Masami Hiramatsu [Thu, 11 Aug 2011 11:03:11 +0000]
perf probe: Search concrete out-of-line instances

gcc 4.6 generates a concrete out-of-line instance when there is a
function which is implicitly inlined somewhere but also has its own
instance. The concrete out-of-line instance means that it has an
abstract origin of the function which is referred by not only
inlined-subroutines but also a concrete subprogram.

Since current dwarf_func_inline_instances() can find only instances of
inlined-subroutines, this introduces new die_walk_instances() to find
both of subprogram and inlined-subroutines.

e.g. without this,
Available variables at sched_group_rt_period
        @<cpu_rt_period_read_uint+9>
                struct task_group*      tg

perf probe failed to find actual subprogram instance of
sched_group_rt_period().

With this,

Available variables at sched_group_rt_period
        @<cpu_rt_period_read_uint+9>
                struct task_group*      tg
        @<sched_group_rt_period+0>
                struct task_group*      tg

Now it found the sched_group_rt_period() itself.

7 years agoperf probe: Avoid searching variables in intermediate scopes
Masami Hiramatsu [Thu, 11 Aug 2011 11:03:05 +0000]
perf probe: Avoid searching variables in intermediate scopes

Fix variable searching logic to search one in inner than local scope or
global(CU) scope. In the other words, skip searching in intermediate
scopes.

e.g., in the following code,

int var1;

void inline infunc(int i)
{
    i++;   <--- [A]
}

void func(void)
{
   int var1, var2;
   infunc(var2);
}

At [A], "var1" should point the global variable "var1", however, if user
mis-typed as "var2", variable search should be failed. However, current
logic searches variable infunc() scope, global scope, and then func()
scope. Thus, it can find "var2" variable in func() scope. This may not
be what user expects.

So, it would better not search outer scopes except outermost (compile
unit) scope which contains only global variables, when it failed to find
given variable in local scope.

E.g.

Without this:
$ perf probe -V pre_schedule --externs > without.vars

With this:
$ perf probe -V pre_schedule --externs > with.vars

Check the diff:
$ diff without.vars with.vars
88d87
<               int     cpu
133d131
<               long unsigned int*      switch_count

These vars are actually in the scope of schedule(), the caller of
pre_schedule().

7 years agoperf probe: Fix to search local variables in appropriate scope
Masami Hiramatsu [Thu, 11 Aug 2011 11:02:59 +0000]
perf probe: Fix to search local variables in appropriate scope

Fix perf probe to search local variables in appropriate local inlined
function scope. For example, pre_schedule() has only 2 local variables,
as below;

$ perf probe -L pre_schedule
<pre_schedule@/home/mhiramat/ksrc/linux-2.6/kernel/sched.c:0>
      0  static inline void pre_schedule(struct rq *rq, struct task_struct *prev)
         {
      2         if (prev->sched_class->pre_schedule)
      3                 prev->sched_class->pre_schedule(rq, prev);
         }

However, current perf probe shows 4 local variables on pre_schedule(),
because it searches variables in the caller(schedule()) scope.

$ perf probe -V pre_schedule
Available variables at pre_schedule
        @<schedule+445>
                int     cpu
                long unsigned int*      switch_count
                struct rq*      rq
                struct task_struct*     prev

This patch fixes this issue by searching variables in the local scope of
the instance of inlined function. Here is the result.

$ perf probe -V pre_schedule
Available variables at pre_schedule
        @<schedule+445>
                struct rq*      rq
                struct task_struct*     prev

7 years agoperf probe: Fix to search nested inlined functions in CU
Masami Hiramatsu [Thu, 11 Aug 2011 11:02:41 +0000]
perf probe: Fix to search nested inlined functions in CU

Fix perf probe to walk through the lines of all nested inlined function
call sites and declared lines when a whole CU is passed to the line
walker.

The die_walk_lines() can have two different type of DIEs, subprogram (or
inlined-subroutine) DIE and CU DIE.

If a caller passes a subprogram DIE, this means that the walker walk on
lines of given subprogram. In this case, it just needs to search on
direct children of DIE tree for finding call-site information of inlined
function which directly called from given subprogram.

On the other hand, if a caller passes a CU DIE to the walker, this means
that the walker have to walk on all lines in the source files included
in given CU DIE. In this case, it has to search whole DIE trees of all
subprograms to find the call-site information of all nested inlined
functions.

Without this patch:

$ perf probe --line kernel/cpu.c:151-157
</home/mhiramat/ksrc/linux-2.6/kernel/cpu.c:151>

         static int cpu_notify(unsigned long val, void *v)
         {
    154         return __cpu_notify(val, v, -1, NULL);
         }

With this:
$ perf probe --line kernel/cpu.c:151-157
</home/mhiramat/ksrc/linux-2.6/kernel/cpu.c:151>

    152  static int cpu_notify(unsigned long val, void *v)
         {
    154         return __cpu_notify(val, v, -1, NULL);
         }

As you can see, --line option with source line range shows the declared
lines as probe-able.

7 years agomove RLIMIT_NPROC check from set_user() to do_execve_common()
Vasiliy Kulikov [Mon, 8 Aug 2011 15:02:04 +0000]
move RLIMIT_NPROC check from set_user() to do_execve_common()

The patch http://lkml.org/lkml/2003/7/13/226 introduced an RLIMIT_NPROC
check in set_user() to check for NPROC exceeding via setuid() and
similar functions.

Before the check there was a possibility to greatly exceed the allowed
number of processes by an unprivileged user if the program relied on
rlimit only.  But the check created new security threat: many poorly
written programs simply don't check setuid() return code and believe it
cannot fail if executed with root privileges.  So, the check is removed
in this patch because of too often privilege escalations related to
buggy programs.

The NPROC can still be enforced in the common code flow of daemons
spawning user processes.  Most of daemons do fork()+setuid()+execve().
The check introduced in execve() (1) enforces the same limit as in
setuid() and (2) doesn't create similar security issues.

Neil Brown suggested to track what specific process has exceeded the
limit by setting PF_NPROC_EXCEEDED process flag.  With the change only
this process would fail on execve(), and other processes' execve()
behaviour is not changed.

Solar Designer suggested to re-check whether NPROC limit is still
exceeded at the moment of execve().  If the process was sleeping for
days between set*uid() and execve(), and the NPROC counter step down
under the limit, the defered execve() failure because NPROC limit was
exceeded days ago would be unexpected.  If the limit is not exceeded
anymore, we clear the flag on successful calls to execve() and fork().

The flag is also cleared on successful calls to set_user() as the limit
was exceeded for the previous user, not the current one.

Similar check was introduced in -ow patches (without the process flag).

v3 - clear PF_NPROC_EXCEEDED on successful calls to set_user().

7 years agoperf report: Use properly build_id kernel binaries
Jiri Olsa [Wed, 1 Jun 2011 19:43:46 +0000]
perf report: Use properly build_id kernel binaries

If we bring the recorded perf data together with kernel binary from another
machine using:

on server A:
perf archive

on server B:
tar xjvf perf.data.tar.bz2 -C ~/.debug

the build_id kernel dso is not properly recognized during the "perf report"
command on server B.

The reason is, that build_id dsos are added during the session initialization,
while the kernel maps are created during the sample event processing.

The machine__create_kernel_maps functions ends up creating new dso object for
kernel, but it does not check if we already have one added by build_id
processing.

Also the build_id reading ABI quirk added in commit:

 - commit b25114817a73bbd2b84ce9dba02ee1ef8989a947
   perf build-id: Add quirk to deal with perf.data file format breakage

populates the "struct build_id_event::pid" with 0, which
is later interpreted as DEFAULT_GUEST_KERNEL_ID.

This is not always correct, so it's better to guess the pid
value based on the "struct build_id_event::header::misc" value.

- Tested with data generated on x86 kernel version v2.6.34
  and reported back on x86_64 current kernel.
- Not tested for guest kernel case.

Note the problem stays for PERF_RECORD_MMAP events recorded by perf that
does not use proper pid (HOST_KERNEL_ID/DEFAULT_GUEST_KERNEL_ID). They are
misinterpreted within the current perf code. Probably there's not much we
can do about that.

Jonathan Nieder [Mon, 8 Aug 2011 04:22:43 +0000]
cap_syslog: don't use WARN_ONCE for CAP_SYS_ADMIN deprecation warning

syslog-ng versions before 3.3.0beta1 (2011-05-12) assume that
CAP_SYS_ADMIN is sufficient to access syslog, so ever since CAP_SYSLOG
was introduced (2010-11-25) they have triggered a warning.

Commit ee24aebffb75 ("cap_syslog: accept CAP_SYS_ADMIN for now")
improved matters a little by making syslog-ng work again, just keeping
the WARN_ONCE().  But still, this is a warning that writes a stack trace
we don't care about to syslog, sets a taint flag, and alarms sysadmins
when nothing worse has happened than use of an old userspace with a
recent kernel.

Convert the WARN_ONCE to a printk_once to avoid that while continuing to
give userspace developers a hint that this is an unwanted
backward-compatibility feature and won't be around forever.

We are crashing because we try to dereference cached memcg when we are
checking whether we should wait for draining on the cache.  The cache is
already cleaned up, though.

There is also a theoretical chance that the cached memcg gets freed
between we test for the FLUSHING_CACHED_CHARGE and dereference it in
mem_cgroup_same_or_subtree:

        CPU0                    CPU1                         CPU2
  mem=stock->cached
  stock->cached=NULL
                              clear_bit
                                                        test_and_set_bit
  test_bit()                    ...
  <preempted>             mem_cgroup_destroy
  use after free

The percpu_charge_mutex protected from this race because sync draining
is exclusive.

It is safer to revert now and come up with a more parallel
implementation later.

slub: Fix partial count comparison confusion

deactivate_slab() has the comparison if more than the minimum number of
partial pages are in the partial list wrong. An effect of this may be that
empty pages are not freed from deactivate_slab(). The result could be an
OOM due to growth of the partial slabs per node. Frees mostly occur from
__slab_free which is okay so this would only affect use cases where a lot
of switching around of per cpu slabs occur.

Switching per cpu slabs occurs with high frequency if debugging options are

Akinobu Mita [Sun, 7 Aug 2011 09:30:38 +0000]
slub: fix check_bytes() for slub debugging

The check_bytes() function is used by slub debugging.  It returns a pointer
to the first unmatching byte for a character in the given memory area.

If the character for matching byte is greater than 0x80, check_bytes()
doesn't work.  Becuase 64-bit pattern is generated as below.

value64 = value | value << 8 | value << 16 | value << 24;
value64 = value64 | value64 << 32;

The integer promotions are performed and sign-extended as the type of value
is u8.  The upper 32 bits of value64 is 0xffffffff in the first line, and
the second line has no effect.

This fixes the 64-bit pattern generation.

Dave Martin [Thu, 28 Jul 2011 13:28:52 +0000]
ARM: 7007/1: alignment: Prevent ignoring of faults with ARMv6 unaligned access model

Currently, it's possible to set the kernel to ignore alignment
faults when changing the alignment fault handling mode at runtime
via /proc/sys/alignment, even though this is undesirable on ARMv6
and above, where it can result in infinite spins where an un-fixed-
up instruction repeatedly faults.

In addition, the kernel clobbers any alignment mode specified on
the command-line if running on ARMv6 or above.

This patch factors out the necessary safety check into a couple of
new helper functions, and checks and modifies the fault handling
mode as appropriate on boot and on writes to /proc/cpu/alignment.

Prior to ARMv6, the behaviour is unchanged.

For ARMv6 and above, the behaviour changes as follows:

  * Attempting to ignore faults on ARMv6 results in the mode being
    forced to UM_FIXUP instead.  A warning is printed if this
    happened as a result of a write to /proc/cpu/alignment.  The
    user's UM_WARN bit (if present) is still honoured.

  * An alignment= argument from the kernel command-line is now
    honoured, except that the kernel will modify the specified mode
    as described above.  This is allows modes such as UM_SIGNAL and
    UM_WARN to be active immediately from boot, which is useful for
    debugging purposes.

autofs4: fix debug printk warning uncovered by cleanup

The previous comit made the autofs4 debug printouts check types against
the printout format, and uncovered this bug:

  fs/autofs4/waitq.c:106:2: warning: format ‘%08lx’ expects type ‘long unsigned int’, but argument 4 has type ‘autofs_wqt_t’

which is due to the insane type for wait_queue_token.  That thing should
be some fixed well-defined size (preferably just 'unsigned int' or
'u32') but for unexplained reasons it is randomly either 'unsigned long'
or 'unsigned int' depending on the architecture.

For now, cast it to 'unsigned long' for printing, the way we do
elsewhere.  Somebody else can try to explain the typedef mess.

(There's a reason we don't support excessive use of typedefs in the
kernel: it's usually just a good way of confusing yourself).

7 years agoperf tools: do not look at ./config for configuration
Jonathan Nieder [Fri, 5 Aug 2011 16:58:38 +0000]
perf tools: do not look at ./config for configuration

In addition to /etc/perfconfig and $HOME/.perfconfig, perf looks for
configuration in the file ./config, imitating git which looks at
$GIT_DIR/config.  If ./config is not a perf configuration file, it
fails, or worse, treats it as a configuration file and changes behavior
in some unexpected way.

"config" is not an unusual name for a file to be lying around and perf
does not have a private directory dedicated for its own use, so let's
just stop looking for configuration in the cwd.  Callers needing
context-sensitive configuration can use the PERF_CONFIG environment
variable.

Since commit 1eb19a12bd22 ("lib/sha1: use the git implementation of
SHA-1"), the ARM SHA1 routines no longer work.  The reason? They
depended on the larger 320-byte workspace, and now the sha1 workspace is
just 16 words (64 bytes).  So the assembly version would overwrite the
stack randomly.

The optimized asm version is also probably slower than the new improved
C version, so there's no reason to keep it around.  At least that was
the case in git, where what appears to be the same assembly language
version was removed two years ago because the optimized C BLK_SHA1 code
was faster.

7 years agovfs: optimize inode cache access patterns
Linus Torvalds [Sun, 7 Aug 2011 05:45:50 +0000]
vfs: optimize inode cache access patterns

The inode structure layout is largely random, and some of the vfs paths
really do care.  The path lookup in particular is already quite D$
intensive, and profiles show that accessing the 'inode->i_op->xyz'
fields is quite costly.

We already optimized the dcache to not unnecessarily load the d_op
structure for members that are often NULL using the DCACHE_OP_xyz bits
in dentry->d_flags, and this does something very similar for the inode
ops that are used during pathname lookup.

It also re-orders the fields so that the fields accessed by 'stat' are
together at the beginning of the inode structure, and roughly in the
order accessed.

The effect of this seems to be in the 1-2% range for an empty kernel
"make -j" run (which is fairly kernel-intensive, mostly in filename
lookup), so it's visible.  The numbers are fairly noisy, though, and
likely depend a lot on exact microarchitecture.  So there's more tuning
to be done.

7 years agoexofs: ios: Move to a per inode components & device-table
Boaz Harrosh [Fri, 5 Aug 2011 22:06:04 +0000]
exofs: ios: Move to a per inode components & device-table

Exofs raid engine was saving on memory space by having a single layout-info,
single pid, and a single device-table, global to the filesystem. Then passing
a credential and object_id info at the io_state level, private for each
inode. It would also devise this contraption of rotating the device table
view for each inode->ino to spread out the device usage.

This is not compatible with the pnfs-objects standard, demanding that
each inode can have it's own layout-info, device-table, and each object
component it's own pid, oid and creds.

So: Bring exofs raid engine to be usable for generic pnfs-objects use by:

* Define an exofs_comp structure that holds obj_id and credential info.

* Break up exofs_layout struct to an exofs_components structure that holds a
  possible array of exofs_comp and the array of devices + the size of the
  arrays.

* Add a "comps" parameter to get_io_state() that specifies the ids creds
  and device array to use for each IO.

  This enables to keep the layout global, but the device-table view, creds
  and IDs at the inode level. It only adds two 64bit to each inode, since
  some of these members already existed in another form.

* ios raid engine now access layout-info and comps-info through the passed
  pointers. Everything is pre-prepared by caller for generic access of
  these structures and arrays.

At the exofs Level:

* Super block holds an exofs_components struct that holds the device
  array, previously in layout. The devices there are in device-table
  order. The device-array is twice bigger and repeats the device-table
  twice so now each inode's device array can point to a random device
  and have a round-robin view of the table, making it compatible to
  previous exofs versions.

* Each inode has an exofs_components struct that is initialized at
  load time, with it's own view of the device table IDs and creds.
  When doing IO this gets passed to the io_state together with the
  layout.

While preforming this change. Bugs where found where credentials with the
wrong IDs where used to access the different SB objects (super.c). As well
as some dead code. It was never noticed because the target we use does not
check the credentials.

exofs_get_io_state later at inode.c::read_exec and
inode.c::write_exec when we actually know these things. So this
patch is kept separate so I can test things apart from other
changes.

7 years agonet: Compute protocol sequence numbers and fragment IDs using MD5.
David S. Miller [Thu, 4 Aug 2011 03:50:44 +0000]
net: Compute protocol sequence numbers and fragment IDs using MD5.

Computers have become a lot faster since we compromised on the
partial MD4 hash which we use currently for performance reasons.

MD5 is a much safer choice, and is inline with both RFC1948 and
other ISS generators (OpenBSD, Solaris, etc.)

Furthermore, only having 24-bits of the sequence number be truly
unpredictable is a very serious limitation.  So the periodic
regeneration and 8-bit counter have been removed.  We compute and
use a full 32-bit sequence number.

For ipv6, DCCP was found to use a 32-bit truncated initial sequence
number (it needs 43-bits) and that is fixed here as well.
