9 years agobitmap: introduce bitmap_set, bitmap_clear, bitmap_find_next_zero_area
Akinobu Mita [Wed, 16 Dec 2009 00:48:25 +0000]
bitmap: introduce bitmap_set, bitmap_clear, bitmap_find_next_zero_area

This introduces new bitmap functions:

bitmap_set: Set specified bit area
bitmap_clear: Clear specified bit area
bitmap_find_next_zero_area: Find free bit area

These are mostly stolen from iommu helper. The differences are:

- Use find_next_bit instead of doing test_bit for each bit

- Rewrite bitmap_set and bitmap_clear

  Instead of setting or clearing for each bit.

- Check the last bit of the limit

  iommu-helper doesn't want to find such area

- The return value if there is no zero area

  find_next_zero_area in iommu helper: returns -1
  bitmap_find_next_zero_area: return >= bitmap size

Jack Steiner [Wed, 16 Dec 2009 00:48:21 +0000]
gru: send cross partition interrupts using the gru

GRU Message queue instructions are used to deliver messages to other SSIs
within the numalink domain.  In most cases, a single GRU mesq instruction
will deliver both the message AND an interrupt to notify the other SSI
that a messsage is present.  In some cases, however, the interrupt must be
sent explicitly.

To improve resilency, the GRU driver should send these explicit interrupts
using the GRU to write the remote chipset register.  Current code sends
the interrupt using a cpu instruction to write the chipset register.

Robin Holt [Wed, 16 Dec 2009 00:47:59 +0000]
x86: uv: XPC receive message reuse triggers invalid BUG_ON()

This was a difficult bug to trip.  XPC was in the middle of sending an
acknowledgement for a received message.

In xpc_received_payload_uv():
.
        ret = xpc_send_gru_msg(ch->sn.uv.cached_notify_gru_mq_desc, msg,
                               sizeof(struct xpc_notify_mq_msghdr_uv));
        if (ret != xpSuccess)
                XPC_DEACTIVATE_PARTITION(&xpc_partitions[ch->partid], ret);

        msg->hdr.msg_slot_number += ch->remote_nentries;

at the point in xpc_send_gru_msg() where the hardware has dispatched the
acknowledgement, the remote side is able to reuse the message structure
and send a message with a different slot number.  This problem is made
worse by interrupts.

The adjustment of msg_slot_number and the BUG_ON in
xpc_handle_notify_mq_msg_uv() which verifies the msg_slot_number is
consistent are only used for debug purposes.  Since a fix for this that
preserves the debug functionality would either have to infringe upon the
payload or allocate another structure just for debug, I decided to remove
it entirely.

The UV BIOS has moved the location of some of their pointers to the

support bcopy operations from MMR space so we need to special case the MMR
addresses using VLOAD operations.

Additionally, the BIOS call for registering a message queue watchlist has

passed in.  This is also reflected in this patch.

9 years agodirect-io: cleanup blockdev_direct_IO locking
Christoph Hellwig [Wed, 16 Dec 2009 00:47:50 +0000]
direct-io: cleanup blockdev_direct_IO locking

Currently the locking in blockdev_direct_IO is a mess, we have three
different locking types and very confusing checks for some of them.  The
most complicated one is DIO_OWN_LOCKING for reads, which happens to not
actually be used.

This patch gets rid of the DIO_OWN_LOCKING - as mentioned above the read
case is unused anyway, and the write side is almost identical to
DIO_NO_LOCKING.  The difference is that DIO_NO_LOCKING always sets the
create argument for the get_blocks callback to zero, but we can easily
move that to the actual get_blocks callbacks.  There are four users of the
DIO_NO_LOCKING mode: gfs already ignores the create argument and thus is
fine with the new version, ocfs2 only errors out if create were ever set,
and we can remove this dead code now, the block device code only ever uses
create for an error message if we are fully beyond the device which can
never happen, and last but not least XFS will need the new behavour for
writes.

Now we can replace the lock_type variable with a flags one, where no flag
means the DIO_NO_LOCKING behaviour and DIO_LOCKING is kept as the first
flag.  Separate out the check for not allowing to fill holes into a
separate flag, although for now both flags always get set at the same
time.

Also revamp the documentation of the locking scheme to actually make
sense.

9 years agodio: don't zero out the pages array inside struct dio
Jeff Moyer [Wed, 16 Dec 2009 00:47:49 +0000]
dio: don't zero out the pages array inside struct dio

Intel reported a performance regression caused by the following commit:

commit 848c4dd5153c7a0de55470ce99a8e13a63b4703f
Author: Zach Brown <zach.brown@oracle.com>
Date:   Mon Aug 20 17:12:01 2007 -0700

    dio: zero struct dio with kzalloc instead of manually

    This patch uses kzalloc to zero all of struct dio rather than
    manually trying to track which fields we rely on being zero.  It
    passed aio+dio stress testing and some bug regression testing on
    ext3.

    This patch was introduced by Linus in the conversation that lead up
    to Badari's minimal fix to manually zero .map_bh.b_state in commit:

      6a648fa72161d1f6468dabd96c5d3c0db04f598a

    It makes the code a bit smaller.  Maybe a couple fewer cachelines to
    load, if we're lucky:

       text    data     bss     dec     hex filename
    3285925  568506 1304616 5159047  4eb887 vmlinux
    3285797  568506 1304616 5158919  4eb807 vmlinux.patched

    I was unable to measure a stable difference in the number of cpu
    cycles spent in blockdev_direct_IO() when pushing aio+dio 256K reads
    at ~340MB/s.

    So the resulting intent of the patch isn't a performance gain but to
    avoid exposing ourselves to the risk of finding another field like
    .map_bh.b_state where we rely on zeroing but don't enforce it in the
    code.

Zach surmised that zeroing out the page array was what caused most of
the problem, and suggested the approach taken in the attached patch for
resolving the issue.  Intel re-tested with this patch and saw a 0.6%
performance gain (the original regression was 0.5%).

used in the comparison against minobj if minobj has been set to something

Also, scrubbing is done once, and then a done-bit is set.  This means that
to accomplish continuous scrubbing a re-enabling mechanism must be used.
I have created the simplest possible such mechanism in the form of a

ipc/sem.c: optimize single sops when semval is zero

If multiple simple decrements on the same semaphore are pending, then the
current code scans all decrement operations, even if the semaphore value
is already 0.

The patch optimizes that: if the semaphore value is 0, then there is no
need to scan the q->alter entries.

Note that this is a common case: It happens if 100 decrements by one are
pending and now an increment by one increases the semaphore value from 0
to 1.  Without this patch, all 100 entries are scanned.  With the patch,
only one entry is scanned, then woken up.  Then the new rule triggers and
the scanning is aborted, without looking at the remaining 99 tasks.

With this patch, single sop increment/decrement by 1 are now O(1).

ipc/sem.c: optimize single semop operations

sysv sem has the concept of semaphore arrays that consist out of multiple
semaphores.  Atomic operations that affect multiple semaphores are
supported.

The patch optimizes single semaphore operation calls that affect only one
semaphore: It's not necessary to scan all pending operations, it is
sufficient to scan the per-semaphore list.

The idea is from Nick Piggin version of an ipc sem improvement, the
implementation is different: The code tries to keep as much common code as
possible.

As the result, the patch is simpler, but optimizes fewer cases.

ipc/sem.c: add a per-semaphore pending list

Based on Nick's findings:

sysv sem has the concept of semaphore arrays that consist out of multiple
semaphores.  Atomic operations that affect multiple semaphores are
supported.

The patch is the first step for optimizing simple, single semaphore
operations: In addition to the global list of all pending operations, a
2nd, per-semaphore list with the simple operations is added.

Note: this patch does not make sense by itself, the new list is used
nowhere.

Additionally, this patch correct an incorrect comment: It's possible to

Nick Piggin [Wed, 16 Dec 2009 00:47:30 +0000]
ipc/sem.c: sem preempt improve

The strange sysv semaphore wakeup scheme has a kind of busy-wait lock
involved, which could deadlock if preemption is enabled during the "lock".

It is an implementation detail (due to a spinlock being held) that this is
actually the case.  However if "spinlocks" are made preemptible, or if the
sem lock is changed to a sleeping lock for example, then the wakeup would
become buggy.  So this might be a bugfix for -rt kernels.

Imagine waker being preempted by wakee and never clearing IN_WAKEUP -- if
wakee has higher RT priority then there is a priority inversion deadlock.
Even if there is not a priority inversion to cause a deadlock, then there
is still time wasted spinning.

Change send_signal() to use si_fromuser().  From now SEND_SIG_NOINFO
triggers the "from_ancestor_ns" check.

This fixes reparent_thread()->group_send_sig_info(pdeath_signal)
behaviour, before this patch send_signal() does not detect the
cross-namespace case when the child of the dying parent belongs to the

This patch can affect the behaviour of send_sig(), kill_pgrp() and
kill_pid() when the caller sends the signal to the sub-namespace with
"priv == 0" but surprisingly all callers seem to use them correctly,
including disassociate_ctty(on_exit).

Except: drivers/staging/comedi/drivers/addi-data/*.c incorrectly use
send_sig(priv => 0).  But his is minor and should be fixed anyway.

The real effect of this patch is that from now we "officially" consider

SEND_SIG_PRIV from kernel

This results in unnecessary SIGTRAP when PTRACE_SINGLESTEP follows the

Suggested by Roland.

Change tracehook_report_syscall_exit() to look at step flag and send the
trap signal if needed.

This change affects ia64, microblaze, parisc, powerpc, sh.  They pass
nonzero "step" argument to tracehook but since it was ignored the tracee
reports via ptrace_notify(), this is not right and not consistent.

- PTRACE_SETSIGINFO doesn't work

- if the tracer resumes the tracee with signr != 0 the new signal
  is generated rather than delivering it

- If PT_TRACESYSGOOD is set the tracee reports the wrong exit_code

I don't have a powerpc machine, but I think this test-case should see the
difference:

#include <unistd.h>
#include <sys/ptrace.h>
#include <sys/wait.h>

9 years agomemcg: remove memcg_tasklist
Daisuke Nishimura [Wed, 16 Dec 2009 00:47:13 +0000]
memcg: remove memcg_tasklist

memcg_tasklist was introduced at commit 7f4d454d(memcg: avoid deadlock
caused by race between oom and cpuset_attach) instead of cgroup_mutex to
fix a deadlock problem.  The cgroup_mutex, which was removed by the
commit, in mem_cgroup_out_of_memory() was originally introduced at commit
c7ba5c9e (Memory controller: OOM handling).

IIUC, the intention of this cgroup_mutex was to prevent task move during
select_bad_process() so that situations like below can be avoided.

  Assume cgroup "foo" has exceeded its limit and is about to trigger oom.
  1. Process A, which has been in cgroup "baa" and uses large memory, is just
     moved to cgroup "foo". Process A can be the candidates for being killed.
  2. Process B, which has been in cgroup "foo" and uses large memory, is just
     moved from cgroup "foo". Process B can be excluded from the candidates for
     being killed.

But these race window exists anyway even if we hold a lock, because
__mem_cgroup_try_charge() decides wether it should trigger oom or not
outside of the lock.  So the original cgroup_mutex in
mem_cgroup_out_of_memory and thus current memcg_tasklist has no use.  And
IMHO, those races are not so critical for users.

This patch removes it and make codes simpler.

memcg: avoid oom-killing innocent task in case of use_hierarchy

task_in_mem_cgroup(), which is called by select_bad_process() to check
whether a task can be a candidate for being oom-killed from memcg's limit,
checks "curr->use_hierarchy"("curr" is the mem_cgroup the task belongs
to).

But this check return true(it's false positive) when:

<some path>/aa use_hierarchy == 0 <- hitting limit
  <some path>/aa/00 use_hierarchy == 1 <- the task belongs to

This leads to killing an innocent task in aa/00.  This patch is a fix for
this bug.  And this patch also fixes the arg for

9 years agomemcg: cleanup mem_cgroup_move_parent()
Daisuke Nishimura [Wed, 16 Dec 2009 00:47:11 +0000]
memcg: cleanup mem_cgroup_move_parent()

mem_cgroup_move_parent() calls try_charge first and cancel_charge on
failure.  IMHO, charge/uncharge(especially charge) is high cost operation,
so we should avoid it as far as possible.

This patch tries to delay try_charge in mem_cgroup_move_parent() by
re-ordering checks it does.

And this patch renames mem_cgroup_move_account() to
__mem_cgroup_move_account(), changes the return value of
__mem_cgroup_move_account() from int to void, and adds a new
wrapper(mem_cgroup_move_account()), which checks whether a @pc is valid
for moving account and calls __mem_cgroup_move_account().

This patch removes the last caller of trylock_page_cgroup(), so removes
its definition too.

9 years agomemcg: coalesce charging via percpu storage
KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Wed, 16 Dec 2009 00:47:08 +0000]
memcg: coalesce charging via percpu storage

This is a patch for coalescing access to res_counter at charging by percpu
caching.  At charge, memcg charges 64pages and remember it in percpu
cache.  Because it's cache, drain/flush if necessary.

This version uses public percpu area.
 2 benefits for using public percpu area.
 1. Sum of stocked charge in the system is limited to # of cpus
    not to the number of memcg. This shows better synchonization.
 2. drain code for flush/cpuhotplug is very easy (and quick)

The most important point of this patch is that we never touch res_counter
in fast path. The res_counter is system-wide shared counter which is modified
very frequently. We shouldn't touch it as far as we can for avoiding
false sharing.

On x86-64 8cpu server, I tested overheads of memcg at page fault by
running a program which does map/fault/unmap in a loop. Running
a task per a cpu by taskset and see sum of the number of page faults
in 60secs.

9 years agomemcg: coalesce uncharge during unmap/truncate
KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Wed, 16 Dec 2009 00:47:03 +0000]
memcg: coalesce uncharge during unmap/truncate

In massive parallel enviroment, res_counter can be a performance
bottleneck.  One strong techinque to reduce lock contention is reducing
calls by coalescing some amount of calls into one.

Considering charge/uncharge chatacteristic,
- charge is done one by one via demand-paging.
- uncharge is done by
- in chunk at munmap, truncate, exit, execve...
- one by one via vmscan/paging.

It seems we have a chance to coalesce uncharges for improving scalability
at unmap/truncation.

This patch is a for coalescing uncharge.  For avoiding scattering memcg's
structure to functions under /mm, this patch adds memcg batch uncharge
information to the task.  A reason for per-task batching is for making use
of caller's context information.  We do batched uncharge (deleyed
uncharge) when truncation/unmap occurs but do direct uncharge when
uncharge is called by memory reclaim (vmscan.c).

The degree of coalescing depends on callers
  - at invalidate/trucate... pagevec size
  - at unmap ....ZAP_BLOCK_SIZE
(memory itself will be freed in this degree.)
Then, we'll not coalescing too much.

On x86-64 8cpu server, I tested overheads of memcg at page fault by
running a program which does map/fault/unmap in a loop. Running
a task per a cpu by taskset and see sum of the number of page faults
in 60secs.

[without memcg config]
  40156968  page-faults              #      0.085 M/sec   ( +-   0.046% )
  27.67 cache-miss/faults
[root cgroup]
  36659599  page-faults              #      0.077 M/sec   ( +-   0.247% )
  31.58 miss/faults

  27133719  page-faults              #      0.057 M/sec   ( +-   0.155% )
  47.16 miss/faults

We can see some amounts of improvement.
(root cgroup doesn't affected by this patch)
Another patch for "charge" will follow this and above will be improved more.

Changelog(since 2009/10/02):
 - renamed filed of memcg_batch (as pages to bytes, memsw to memsw_bytes)
 - some clean up and commentary/description updates.
 - added initialize code to copy_process(). (possible bug fix)

Changelog(old):
 - fixed !CONFIG_MEM_CGROUP case.
 - rebased onto the latest mmotm + softlimit fix patches.
 - unified patch for callers
 - added commetns.
 - make ->do_batch as bool.
 - removed css_get() at el. We don't need it.

A memory cgroup has a memory.memsw.usage_in_bytes file.  It shows the sum

ext2: report metadata errors during fsync

When an IO error happens while writing metadata buffers, we should better
report it and call ext2_error since the filesystem is probably no longer
consistent.  Sometimes such IO errors happen while flushing thread does
background writeback, the buffer gets later evicted from memory, and thus
the only trace of the error remains as AS_EIO bit set in blockdevice's
mapping.  So we check this bit in ext2_fsync and report the error although
we cannot be really sure which buffer we failed to write.
