Each time when the non "selected_console" (tty1 and ttyMFD2 here) get

consoles again, the "mrst" early console will get some same message for 3
times, and "tty1" will get some for twice.

As suggested by Andrew Morton, every time a new console is registered, it
will be set as the "exclusive" console which will dump the already
existing kernel messages.

8 years agoconsole: allow to retain boot console via boot option keep_bootcon
Fabio M. Di Nitto [Tue, 22 Mar 2011 23:34:20 +0000]
console: allow to retain boot console via boot option keep_bootcon

On some architectures, the boot process involves de-registering the boot
console (early boot), initialize drivers and then re-register the console.

This mechanism introduces a window in which no printk can happen on the
console and messages are buffered and then printed once the new console is
available.

If a kernel crashes during this window, all it's left on the boot console
is "console [foo] enabled, bootconsole disabled" making debug of the crash
rather 'interesting'.

By adding "keep_bootcon" option, do not unregister the boot console, that
will allow to printk everything that is happening up to the crash.

The option is clearly meant only for debugging purposes as it introduces
lots of duplicated info printed on console, but will make bug report from
users easier as it doesn't require a kernel build just to figure out where
we crash.

8 years agokernel/watchdog.c: always return NOTIFY_OK during cpu up/down events
Don Zickus [Tue, 22 Mar 2011 23:34:17 +0000]
kernel/watchdog.c: always return NOTIFY_OK during cpu up/down events

This patch addresses a couple of problems.  One was the case when the
hardlockup failed to start, it also failed to start the softlockup.  There
were valid cases when the hardlockup shouldn't start and that shouldn't
block the softlockup (no lapic, bios controls perf counters).

The second problem was when the hardlockup failed to start on boxes (from
a no lapic or bios controlled perf counter case), it reported failure to
the cpu notifier chain.  This blocked the notifier from continuing to
start other more critical pieces of cpu bring-up (in our case based on a
2.6.32 fork, it was the mce).  As a result, during soft cpu online/offline
testing, the system would panic when a cpu was offlined because the cpu
notifier would succeed in processing a watchdog disable cpu event and
would panic in the mce case as a result of un-initialized variables from a
never executed cpu up event.

I realized the hardlockup/softlockup cases are really just debugging aids
and should never impede the progress of a cpu up/down event.  Therefore I
modified the code to always return NOTIFY_OK and instead rely on printks
to inform the user of problems.

kernel/watchdog.c: allow hardlockup to panic by default

When a cpu is considered stuck, instead of limping along and just printing
a warning, it is sometimes preferred to just panic, let kdump capture the
vmcore and reboot.  This gets the machine back into a stable state quickly
while saving the info that got it into a stuck state to begin with.

Add a Kconfig option to allow users to set the hardlockup to panic
by default.  Also add in a 'nmi_watchdog=nopanic' to override this.

8 years agocalibrate: retry with wider bounds when converge seems to fail
Phil Carmody [Tue, 22 Mar 2011 23:34:15 +0000]
calibrate: retry with wider bounds when converge seems to fail

Systems with unmaskable interrupts such as SMIs may massively
underestimate loops_per_jiffy, and fail to converge anywhere near the real
value.  A case seen on x86_64 was an initial estimate of 256<<12, which
converged to 511<<12 where the real value should have been over 630<<12.
This admitedly requires bypassing the TSC calibration (lpj_fine), and a
failure to settle in the direct calibration too, but is physically
possible.  This failure does not depend on my previous calibration
optimisation, but by luck is easy to fix with the optimisation in place
with a trivial retry loop.

In the context of the optimised converging method, as we can no longer
trust the starting estimate, enlarge the search bounds exponentially so
that the number of retries is logarithmically bounded.

8 years agocalibrate: home in on correct lpj value more quickly
Phil Carmody [Tue, 22 Mar 2011 23:34:13 +0000]
calibrate: home in on correct lpj value more quickly

Binary chop with a jiffy-resync on each step to find an upper bound is
slow, so just race in a tight-ish loop to find an underestimate.

If done with lots of individual steps, sometimes several hundreds of
iterations would be required, which would impose a significant overhead,
and make the initial estimate very low.  By taking slowly increasing steps
there will be less overhead.

E.g.  an x86_64 2.67GHz could have fitted in 613 individual small delays,
but in reality should have been able to fit in a single delay 644 times
longer, so underestimated by 31 steps.  To reach the equivalent of 644
small delays with the accelerating scheme now requires about 130
iterations, so has <1/4th of the overhead, and can therefore be expected
to underestimate by only 7 steps.

As now we have a better initial estimate we can binary chop over a smaller
range.  With the loop overhead in the initial estimate kept low, and the
step sizes moderate, we won't have under-estimated by much, so chose as
tight a range as we can.

8 years agocalibrate: extract fall-back calculation into own helper
Phil Carmody [Tue, 22 Mar 2011 23:34:12 +0000]
calibrate: extract fall-back calculation into own helper

The motivation for this patch series is that currently our OMAP calibrates
itself using the trial-and-error binary chop fallback that some other
architectures no longer need to perform.  This is a lengthy process,
taking 0.2s in an environment where boot time is of great interest.

Patch 2/4 has two optimisations.  Firstly, it replaces the initial
repeated- doubling to find the relevant power of 2 with a tight loop that
just does as much as it can in a jiffy.  Secondly, it doesn't binary chop
over an entire power of 2 range, it choses a much smaller range based on
how much it squeezed in, and failed to squeeze in, during the first stage.
 Both are significant optimisations, and bring our calibration down from
23 jiffies to 5, and, in the process, often arrive at a more accurate lpj
value.

The 'bands' and 'sub-logarithmic' growth may look over-engineered, but
they only cost a small level of inaccuracy in the initial guess (for all
architectures) in order to avoid the very large inaccuracies that appeared
during testing (on x86_64 architectures, and presumably others with less
metronomic operation).  Note that due to the existence of the TSC and
other timers, the x86_64 will not typically use this fallback routine, but
I wanted to code defensively, able to cope with all kinds of processor
behaviours and kernel command line options.

Patch 3/4 is an additional trap for the nightmare scenario where the
initial estimate is very inaccurate, possibly due to things like SMIs.
It simply retries with a larger bound.

Stephen said:

I tried this patch set out on an MSM7630.
:
: Before:
:
: Calibrating delay loop... 681.57 BogoMIPS (lpj=3407872)
:
: After:
:
: Calibrating delay loop... 680.75 BogoMIPS (lpj=3403776)
:
: But the really good news is calibration time dropped from ~247ms to ~56ms.
:  Sadly we won't be able to benefit from this should my udelay patches make
: it into ARM because we would be using calibrate_delay_direct() instead (at
: least on machines who choose to).  Can we somehow reapply the logic behind
: this to calibrate_delay_direct()?  That would be even better, but this is
: definitely a boot time improvement.
:
: Or maybe we could just replace calibrate_delay_direct() with this fallback
: calculation?  If __delay() is a thin wrapper around read_current_timer()
: it should work just as well (plus patch 3 makes it handle SMIs).  I'll try
: that out.

This patch:

... so that it can be modified more clinically.

This is almost entirely cosmetic. The only change to the operation
is that the global variable is only set once after the estimation is
completed, rather than taking on all the intermediate values. However,
there are no readers of that variable, so this change is unimportant.

8 years agosys_unshare: remove the dead CLONE_THREAD/SIGHAND/VM code
Oleg Nesterov [Tue, 22 Mar 2011 23:34:09 +0000]
sys_unshare: remove the dead CLONE_THREAD/SIGHAND/VM code

Cleanup: kill the dead code which does nothing but complicates the code
and confuses the reader.

sys_unshare(CLONE_THREAD/SIGHAND/VM) is not really implemented, and I
doubt very much it will ever work.  At least, nobody even tried since the
original 99d1419d96d7df9cfa56 ("unshare system call -v5: system call
handler function") was applied more than 4 years ago.

And the code is not consistent.  unshare_thread() always fails
unconditionally, while unshare_sighand() and unshare_vm() pretend to work
if there is nothing to unshare.

Remove unshare_thread(), unshare_sighand(), unshare_vm() helpers and
related variables and add a simple CLONE_THREAD | CLONE_SIGHAND| CLONE_VM
check into check_unshare_flags().

Also, move the "CLONE_NEWNS needs CLONE_FS" check from
check_unshare_flags() to sys_unshare().  This looks more consistent and
matches the similar do_sysvsem check in sys_unshare().

Note: with or without this patch "atomic_read(mm->mm_users) > 1" can give
a false positive due to get_task_mm().

8 years agouml: kernels on {i386,x86_64} produce bad coredumps
Paul Pluzhnikov [Tue, 22 Mar 2011 23:33:46 +0000]
uml: kernels on {i386,x86_64} produce bad coredumps

One of our users reported that when a user-level program SIGSEGVs under
UML kernel, the resulting core dump is not very usable.

I have reproduced that with the latest kernel:

  make ARCH=um defconfig; make ARCH=um

Run the resulting kernel, then "inside" run this program:

#include <pthread.h>

void *fn(void *p)
{
 abort();
}

int main()
{
 pthread_t tid;
 pthread_create(&tid, 0, fn, 0);
 pthread_join(tid, 0);
 return 0;
}

Analyze the coredump with GDB. Here is what you'll see:

sudo gdb -q -ex 'set solib-absolute-prefix ../root_fs' -ex 'file ../root_fs/var/tmp/mt-abort' -ex 'core ../root_fs/var/tmp/core.762'

Examining the core shows that NT_PRSTATUS notes for all threads other than
the one that crashed are zeroed out.

I believe this is happening because neither ELF_CORE_COPY_TASK_REGS nor
task_pt_regs are defined under ARCH=um, and so elf_core_copy_task_regs()
becomes a no-op.

Attached patch fixes this for SUBARCH={x86_64,i386}.

8 years agomm/memblock: properly handle overlaps and fix error path
Benjamin Herrenschmidt [Tue, 22 Mar 2011 23:33:43 +0000]
mm/memblock: properly handle overlaps and fix error path

Currently memblock_reserve() or memblock_free() don't handle overlaps of
any kind.  There is some special casing for coalescing exactly adjacent
regions but that's about it.

This is annoying because typically memblock_reserve() is used to mark
regions passed by the firmware as reserved and we all know how much we can
trust our firmwares...

Also, with the current code, if we do something it doesn't handle right
such as trying to memblock_reserve() a large range spanning multiple
existing smaller reserved regions for example, or doing overlapping
reservations, it can silently corrupt the internal region array, causing
odd errors much later on, such as allocations returning reserved regions
etc...

This patch rewrites the underlying functions that add or remove a region
to the arrays.  The new code is a lot more robust as it fully handles
overlapping regions.  It's also, imho, simpler than the previous
implementation.

In addition, while doing so, I found a bug where if we fail to double the
array while adding a region, we would remove the last region of the array
rather than the region we just allocated.  This fixes it too.

redirtied.

However, in some cases, sequential writer is writing in the middle of the
page and it just redirties the last written page by continuing from that.
For example with an application which uses a file as a big ring buffer we
see:

       flush-8:0-2743  4606: block_bio_queue: 8,0 W 94899986 + 8
       flush-8:0-2743  4606: block_bio_queue: 8,0 W 94899994 + 8

>>     flush-8:0-2743  4606: block_rq_issue: 8,0 W 0 () 94898554 + 8

So we seeked back to 94898554 after we wrote all the pages at the end of
the file.

This extra seek seems unnecessary.  If we continue writeback from the last
written page, we can avoid it and do not cause harm to other cases.  The
original intent of even writeout over the whole file is preserved and if
the page does not get redirtied pagevec_lookup_tag() just skips it.

As an exceptional case, when I/O error happens, set done_index to the next
page as the comment in the code suggests.

8 years agomm: remove inline from scan_swap_map()
Cesar Eduardo Barros [Tue, 22 Mar 2011 23:33:38 +0000]
mm: remove inline from scan_swap_map()

scan_swap_map() is a large function (224 lines), with several loops and a
complex control flow involving several gotos.

Given all that, it is a bit silly that it is marked as inline.  The
compiler agrees with me: on a x86-64 compile, it did not inline the
function.

Remove the "inline" and let the compiler decide instead.

8 years agosys_swapon: use vzalloc() instead of vmalloc/memset
Cesar Eduardo Barros [Tue, 22 Mar 2011 23:33:14 +0000]
sys_swapon: use vzalloc() instead of vmalloc/memset

This patch series refactors the sys_swapon function.

sys_swapon is currently a very large function, with 313 lines (more than
12 25-line screens), which can make it a bit hard to read. This patch
series reduces this size by half, by extracting large chunks of related
code to new helper functions.

One of these chunks of code was nearly identical to the part of
sys_swapoff which is used in case of a failure return from
try_to_unuse(), so this patch series also makes both share the same
code.

As a side effect of all this refactoring, the compiled code gets a bit
smaller (from v1 of this patch series):

   text       data        bss        dec        hex    filename
  14012        944        276      15232       3b80    mm/swapfile.o.before
  13941        944        276      15161       3b39    mm/swapfile.o.after

8 years agomm: compaction: Use async migration for __GFP_NO_KSWAPD and enforce no writeback

mm: compaction: Use async migration for __GFP_NO_KSWAPD and enforce no writeback

__GFP_NO_KSWAPD allocations are usually very expensive and not mandatory
to succeed as they have graceful fallback.  Waiting for I/O in those,
tends to be overkill in terms of latencies, so we can reduce their latency
by disabling sync migrate.

Unfortunately, even with async migration it's still possible for the
process to be blocked waiting for a request slot (e.g.  get_request_wait
in the block layer) when ->writepage is called.  To prevent
__GFP_NO_KSWAPD blocking, this patch prevents ->writepage being called on
dirty page cache for asynchronous migration.

8 years agomm: compaction: minimise the time IRQs are disabled while isolating pages for migration

mm: compaction: minimise the time IRQs are disabled while isolating pages for migration

compaction_alloc() isolates pages for migration in isolate_migratepages.
While it's scanning, IRQs are disabled on the mistaken assumption the
scanning should be short.  Tests show this to be true for the most part
but contention times on the LRU lock can be increased.  Before this patch,
the IRQ disabled times for a simple test looked like

  Total sampled time IRQs off (not real total time): 5493
  Event shrink_inactive_list..shrink_zone                  1596 us count 1
  Event shrink_inactive_list..shrink_zone                  1530 us count 1

  Event __wake_up..__wake_up                                  1 us count 1

This patch reduces the worst-case IRQs-disabled latencies by releasing the
lock every SWAP_CLUSTER_MAX pages that are scanned and releasing the CPU if
necessary. The cost of this is that the processing performing compaction will
be slower but IRQs being disabled for too long a time has worse consequences
as the following report shows;

compaction_alloc() isolates free pages to be used as migration targets.
While its scanning, IRQs are disabled on the mistaken assumption the
scanning should be short.  Analysis showed that IRQs were in fact being
disabled for substantial time.  A simple test was run using large
anonymous mappings with transparent hugepage support enabled to trigger
frequent compactions.  A monitor sampled what the worst IRQ-off latencies
were and a post-processing tool found the following;

  Total sampled time IRQs off (not real total time): 22355
  Event compaction_alloc..compaction_alloc                 8409 us count 1
  Event compaction_alloc..compaction_alloc                 7341 us count 1

  Event __alloc_pages_nodemask..__alloc_pages_nodemask        6 us count 1

i.e.  compaction is disabled IRQs for a prolonged period of time - 8ms in
one instance.  The full report generated by the tool can be found at

 http://www.csn.ul.ie/~mel/postings/minfree-20110225/irqsoff-vanilla-micro.report

This patch reduces the time IRQs are disabled by simply disabling IRQs at
the last possible minute.  An updated IRQs-off summary report then looks
like;

  Total sampled time IRQs off (not real total time): 5493
  Event shrink_inactive_list..shrink_zone                  1596 us count 1
  Event shrink_inactive_list..shrink_zone                  1530 us count 1

A full report is again available at

  http://www.csn.ul.ie/~mel/postings/minfree-20110225/irqsoff-minimiseirq-free-v1r4-micro.report

As should be obvious, IRQ disabled latencies due to compaction are
almost elimimnated for this particular test.

8 years agomm: don't return 0 too early from find_get_pages()
Hugh Dickins [Tue, 22 Mar 2011 23:33:07 +0000]
mm: don't return 0 too early from find_get_pages()

Callers of find_get_pages(), or its wrapper pagevec_lookup() - notably
truncate_inode_pages_range() - stop looking further when it returns 0.

But if an interrupt comes just after its radix_tree_gang_lookup_slot(),
especially if we have preemptible RCU enabled, isn't it conceivable that
all 14 pages returned could be removed from the page cache by
shrink_page_list(), before find_get_pages() gets to process them?  So
causing it to return 0 although there may be plenty more pages beyond.

Make find_get_pages() and find_get_pages_tag() check for this unlikely
case, and restart should it occur; but callers of find_get_pages_contig()
have no such expectation, it's okay for that to return 0 early.

I have not seen this in practice, just worried by the possibility.

The radix_tree_deref_retry() case in find_get_pages() has a strange little
excrescence, not seen in the other gang lookups: it looks like the start
of an abandoned attempt to guarantee forward progress in a case that
cannot arise.

ret should always be 0 here: if it isn't, then going back to restart will
leak references to pages already gotten.  There used to be a comment
saying nr_found is necessarily 1 here: that's not quite true, but the
radix_tree_deref_retry() case is peculiar to the entry at index 0, when we
race with it being moved out of the radix_tree root or back.

Remove the worrisome two lines, add a brief comment here and in
find_get_pages_contig() and find_get_pages_tag(), and a WARN_ON in
find_get_pages() should it ever be seen elsewhere than at 0.

8 years agomm: vmscan: kswapd should not free an excessive number of pages when balancing small...
Mel Gorman [Tue, 22 Mar 2011 23:33:04 +0000]
mm: vmscan: kswapd should not free an excessive number of pages when balancing small zones

When reclaiming for order-0 pages, kswapd requires that all zones be
balanced.  Each cycle through balance_pgdat() does background ageing on
all zones if necessary and applies equal pressure on the inactive zone
unless a lot of pages are free already.

A "lot of free pages" is defined as a "balance gap" above the high
watermark which is currently 7*high_watermark.  Historically this was
reasonable as min_free_kbytes was small.  However, on systems using huge
pages, it is recommended that min_free_kbytes is higher and it is tuned
with hugeadm --set-recommended-min_free_kbytes.  With the introduction of
transparent huge page support, this recommended value is also applied.  On
X86-64 with 4G of memory, min_free_kbytes becomes 67584 so one would
expect around 68M of memory to be free.  The Normal zone is approximately
35000 pages so under even normal memory pressure such as copying a large
file, it gets exhausted quickly.  As it is getting exhausted, kswapd
applies pressure equally to all zones, including the DMA32 zone.  DMA32 is
approximately 700,000 pages with a high watermark of around 23,000 pages.
In this situation, kswapd will reclaim around (23000*8 where 8 is the high
watermark + balance gap of 7 * high watermark) pages or 718M of pages
before the zone is ignored.  What the user sees is that free memory far
higher than it should be.

To avoid an excessive number of pages being reclaimed from the larger
zones, explicitely defines the "balance gap" to be either 1% of the zone
or the low watermark for the zone, whichever is smaller.  While kswapd
will check all zones to apply pressure, it'll ignore zones that meets the
(high_wmark + balance_gap) watermark.

To test this, 80G were copied from a partition and the amount of memory
being used was recorded.  A comparison of a patch and unpatched kernel can
be seen at
http://www.csn.ul.ie/~mel/postings/minfree-20110222/memory-usage-hydra.ps
and shows that kswapd is not reclaiming as much memory with the patch
applied.

8 years agopagewalk: only split huge pages when necessary
Dave Hansen [Tue, 22 Mar 2011 23:32:56 +0000]
pagewalk: only split huge pages when necessary

Right now, if a mm_walk has either ->pte_entry or ->pmd_entry set, it will
unconditionally split any transparent huge pages it runs in to.  In
practice, that means that anyone doing a

cat /proc/$pid/smaps

will unconditionally break down every huge page in the process and depend
on khugepaged to re-collapse it later.  This is fairly suboptimal.

This patch changes that behavior.  It teaches each ->pmd_entry handler
(there are five) that they must break down the THPs themselves.  Also, the
_generic_ code will never break down a THP unless a ->pte_entry handler is
actually set.

This means that the ->pmd_entry handlers can now choose to deal with THPs
without breaking them down.

8 years agomm: reclaim invalidated page ASAP
Minchan Kim [Tue, 22 Mar 2011 23:32:54 +0000]
mm: reclaim invalidated page ASAP

invalidate_mapping_pages is very big hint to reclaimer.  It means user
doesn't want to use the page any more.  So in order to prevent working set
page eviction, this patch move the page into tail of inactive list by
PG_reclaim.

Please, remember that pages in inactive list are working set as well as
active list.  If we don't move pages into inactive list's tail, pages near
by tail of inactive list can be evicted although we have a big clue about
useless pages.  It's totally bad.

Now PG_readahead/PG_reclaim is shared.  fe3cba17 added ClearPageReclaim
into clear_page_dirty_for_io for preventing fast reclaiming readahead
marker page.

In this series, PG_reclaim is used by invalidated page, too.  If VM find
the page is invalidated and it's dirty, it sets PG_reclaim to reclaim
asap.  Then, when the dirty page will be writeback,
clear_page_dirty_for_io will clear PG_reclaim unconditionally.  It
disturbs this serie's goal.

I think it's okay to clear PG_readahead when the page is dirty, not
writeback time.  So this patch moves ClearPageReadahead.  In v4,
ClearPageReadahead in set_page_dirty has a problem which is reported by
Steven Barrett.  It's due to compound page.  Some driver(ex, audio) calls
set_page_dirty with compound page which isn't on LRU.  but my patch does
ClearPageRelcaim on compound page.  In non-CONFIG_PAGEFLAGS_EXTENDED, it
breaks PageTail flag.

I think it doesn't affect THP and pass my test with THP enabling but Cced
Andrea for double check.

8 years agomm: deactivate invalidated pages
Minchan Kim [Tue, 22 Mar 2011 23:32:52 +0000]
mm: deactivate invalidated pages

Recently, there are reported problem about thrashing.
(http://marc.info/?l=rsync&m=128885034930933&w=2) It happens by backup
workloads(ex, nightly rsync).  That's because the workload makes just
use-once pages and touches pages twice.  It promotes the page into active
list so that it results in working set page eviction.

Some app developer want to support POSIX_FADV_NOREUSE.  But other OSes
don't support it, either.
(http://marc.info/?l=linux-mm&m=128928979512086&w=2)

By other approach, app developers use POSIX_FADV_DONTNEED.  But it has a
problem.  If kernel meets page is writing during invalidate_mapping_pages,
it can't work.  It makes for application programmer to use it since they
always have to sync data before calling fadivse(..POSIX_FADV_DONTNEED) to
make sure the pages could be discardable.  At last, they can't use
deferred write of kernel so that they could see performance loss.
(http://insights.oetiker.ch/linux/fadvise.html)

In fact, invalidation is very big hint to reclaimer.  It means we don't
use the page any more.  So let's move the writing page into inactive
list's head if we can't truncate it right now.

Why I move page to head of lru on this patch, Dirty/Writeback page would
be flushed sooner or later.  It can prevent writeout of pageout which is
less effective than flusher's writeout.

Originally, I reused lru_demote of Peter with some change so added his
