8 years agotracing/syscalls: Make arch_syscall_addr weak
Ian Munsie [Thu, 3 Feb 2011 03:27:22 +0000]
tracing/syscalls: Make arch_syscall_addr weak

Some architectures use non-trivial system call tables and will not work
with the generic arch_syscall_addr code. For example, PowerPC64 uses a
table of twin long longs.

This patch makes the generic arch_syscall_addr weak to allow
architectures with non-trivial system call tables to override it.

8 years agotracing/syscalls: Convert redundant syscall_nr checks into WARN_ON
Ian Munsie [Thu, 3 Feb 2011 03:27:21 +0000]
tracing/syscalls: Convert redundant syscall_nr checks into WARN_ON

With the ftrace events now checking if the syscall_nr is valid upon
initialisation it should no longer be possible to register or unregister
a syscall event without a valid syscall_nr since they should not be
created. This adds a WARN_ON_ONCE in the register and unregister
functions to locate potential regressions in the future.

8 years agotracing/syscalls: Don't add events for unmapped syscalls
Ian Munsie [Thu, 3 Feb 2011 03:27:20 +0000]
tracing/syscalls: Don't add events for unmapped syscalls

FTRACE_SYSCALLS would create events for each and every system call, even
if it had failed to map the system call's name with it's number. This
resulted in a number of events being created that would not behave as
expected.

This could happen, for example, on architectures who's symbol names are
unusual and will not match the system call name. It could also happen
with system calls which were mapped to sys_ni_syscall.

This patch changes the default system call number in the metadata to -1.
If the system call name from the metadata is not successfully mapped to
a system call number during boot, than the event initialisation routine
will now return an error, preventing the event from being created.

x86-32: Make sure the stack is set up before we use it

Since checkin ebba638ae723d8a8fc2f7abce5ec18b688b791d7 we call
verify_cpu even in 32-bit mode.  Unfortunately, calling a function
means using the stack, and the stack pointer was not initialized in
the 32-bit setup code!  This code initializes the stack pointer, and
simplifies the interface slightly since it is easier to rely on just a
pointer value rather than a descriptor; we need to have different
values for the segment register anyway.

This retains start_stack as a virtual address, even though a physical
address would be more convenient for 32 bits; the 64-bit code wants
the other way around...

In drm_crtc_helper_set_config, instead of always forcing all outputs
to DRM_MODE_DPMS_ON, only set them if the CRTC is actually getting a
mode set, as any mode set will turn all outputs on.

lockdep, timer: Fix del_timer_sync() annotation

Calling local_bh_enable() will want to actually start processing
softirqs, which isn't a good idea since this can get called with IRQs
disabled.

Cure this by using _local_bh_enable() which doesn't start processing

8 years agoniu: Fix races between up/down and get_stats.
David S. Miller [Fri, 4 Feb 2011 00:12:50 +0000]
niu: Fix races between up/down and get_stats.

As reported by Flavio Leitner, there is no synchronization to protect
NIU's get_stats method from seeing a NULL pointer in either
np->rx_rings or np->tx_rings.  In fact, as far as ->ndo_get_stats
is concerned, these values are set completely asynchronously.

Flavio attempted to fix this using a RW semaphore, which in fact
works most of the time.  However, dev_get_stats() can be invoked
from non-sleepable contexts in some cases, so this fix doesn't
work in all cases.

So instead, control the visibility of the np->{rx,tx}_ring pointers
when the device is being brough up, and use properties of the device
down sequence to our advantage.

In niu_get_stats(), return immediately if netif_running() is false.
The device shutdown sequence first marks the device as not running (by
clearing the __LINK_STATE_START bit), then it performans a
synchronize_rcu() (in dev_deactive_many()), and then finally it
invokes the driver ->ndo_stop() method.

This guarentees that all invocations of niu_get_stats() either see
netif_running() as false, or they see the channel pointers before
->ndo_stop() clears them out.

If netif_running() is true, protect against startup races by loading
the np->{rx,tx}_rings pointer into a local variable, and punting if
it is NULL.  Use ACCESS_ONCE to prevent the compiler from reloading
the pointer on us.

Also, during open, control the order in which the pointers and the
ring counts become visible globally using SMP write memory barriers.
We make sure the np->num_{rx,tx}_rings value is stable and visible
before np->{rx,tx}_rings is.

Such visibility control is not necessary on the niu_free_channels()
side because of the RCU sequencing that happens during device down as
described above.  We are always guarenteed that all niu_get_stats
calls are finished, or will see netif_running() false, by the time
->ndo_stop is invoked.

Stephen Kitt [Mon, 31 Jan 2011 22:25:43 +0000]
agp: ensure GART has an address before enabling it

Some BIOSs (eg.  the AMI BIOS on the Asus P4P800 motherboard) don't
initialise the GART address, and pcibios_assign_resources() can ignore it
because it can be marked as a host bridge (see
https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=24392#c5 for details).  This
was handled correctly up to 2.6.35, but the pci_enable_device() cleanup in
2.6.36 96576a9e1a0cdb8 ("agp: intel-agp: do not use PCI resources before
pci_enable_device()") means that the kernel tries to enable the GART
before assigning it an address; in such cases the GART overlaps with other
device assignments and ends up being disabled.

This patch fixes https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=24392

Note that I imagine efficeon-agp.c probably has the same problem, but
I can't test that and I'd like to make sure this patch is suitable for
-stable (since 2.6.36 and 2.6.37 are affected).

Revert "agp: AMD AGP is used on UP1100 & UP1500 alpha boxen"

This reverts commit f191f144079b0083c6fa7d01a4acbd7263fb5032.

The AMD 751 and 761 chipsets are used on the UP1000, UP1100, and UP1500
OEM motherboards, but they neglect to do anything to make AGP work.

According to Ivan Kokshaysky:
There is quite fundamental conflict between the Alpha architecture and
x86 AGP implementation - Alpha is entirely cache coherent by design,
while x86 AGP is not (I mean native AGP DMA transactions, not a PCI over
AGP). There are no such things as non-cacheable mappings or software
support for cache flushing/invalidation on Alpha, so x86 AGP code won't
work on Nautilus.

So there's no point in allowing this driver to be configured on Alpha.

8 years agox86, mm: avoid possible bogus tlb entries by clearing prev mm_cpumask after switching mm
Suresh Siddha [Thu, 3 Feb 2011 20:20:04 +0000]
x86, mm: avoid possible bogus tlb entries by clearing prev mm_cpumask after switching mm

Clearing the cpu in prev's mm_cpumask early will avoid the flush tlb
IPI's while the cr3 is still pointing to the prev mm.  And this window
can lead to the possibility of bogus TLB fills resulting in strange
failures.  One such problematic scenario is mentioned below.

 T1. CPU-1 is context switching from mm1 to mm2 context and got a NMI
     etc between the point of clearing the cpu from the mm_cpumask(mm1)
     and before reloading the cr3 with the new mm2.

 T2. CPU-2 is tearing down a specific vma for mm1 and will proceed with
     flushing the TLB for mm1.  It doesn't send the flush TLB to CPU-1
     as it doesn't see that cpu listed in the mm_cpumask(mm1).

 T3. After the TLB flush is complete, CPU-2 goes ahead and frees the
     page-table pages associated with the removed vma mapping.

 T4. CPU-2 now allocates those freed page-table pages for something
     else.

 T5. As the CR3 and TLB caches for mm1 is still active on CPU-1, CPU-1
     can potentially speculate and walk through the page-table caches
     and can insert new TLB entries.  As the page-table pages are
     already freed and being used on CPU-2, this page walk can
     potentially insert a bogus global TLB entry depending on the
     (random) contents of the page that is being used on CPU-2.

 T6. This bogus TLB entry being global will be active across future CR3
     changes and can result in weird memory corruption etc.

To avoid this issue, for the prev mm that is handing over the cpu to
another mm, clear the cpu from the mm_cpumask(prev) after the cr3 is
changed.

Marking it for -stable, though we haven't seen any reported failure that
can be attributed to this.

perf stat: Fix aggreate counter reading accounting

Introduced in: c52b12ed, when this sequence:

  count[0] = count[1] = count[2] = 0;

Was replaced with:

  aggr->val = 0;

Which is equivalent to zeroing just the first entry in the 'count'
array.

Fix it by zeroing the three entries with:

  aggr->val = aggr->ena = aggr->run = 0;

8 years agotracing: Replace syscall_meta_data struct array with pointer array
Steven Rostedt [Wed, 2 Feb 2011 22:06:09 +0000]
tracing: Replace syscall_meta_data struct array with pointer array

Currently the syscall_meta structures for the syscall tracepoints are
placed in the __syscall_metadata section, and at link time, the linker
makes one large array of all these syscall metadata structures. On boot
up, this array is read (much like the initcall sections) and the syscall
data is processed.

The problem is that there is no guarantee that gcc will place complex
structures nicely together in an array format. Two structures in the
same file may be placed awkwardly, because gcc has no clue that they
are suppose to be in an array.

A hack was used previous to force the alignment to 4, to pack the
structures together. But this caused alignment issues with other
architectures (sparc).

Instead of packing the structures into an array, the structures' addresses
are now put into the __syscall_metadata section. As pointers are always the
natural alignment, gcc should always pack them tightly together
(otherwise initcall, extable, etc would also fail).

By having the pointers to the structures in the section, we can still
iterate the trace_events without causing unnecessary alignment problems
with other architectures, or depending on the current behaviour of
gcc that will likely change in the future just to tick us kernel developers
off a little more.

The __syscall_metadata section is also moved into the .init.data section
as it is now only needed at boot up.

8 years agotracepoints: Fix section alignment using pointer array
Mathieu Desnoyers [Wed, 26 Jan 2011 22:26:22 +0000]
tracepoints: Fix section alignment using pointer array

Make the tracepoints more robust, making them solid enough to handle compiler
changes by not relying on anything based on compiler-specific behavior with
respect to structure alignment. Implement an approach proposed by David Miller:
use an array of const pointers to refer to the individual structures, and export
this pointer array through the linker script rather than the structures per se.
It will consume 32 extra bytes per tracepoint (24 for structure padding and 8
for the pointers), but are less likely to break due to compiler changes.

History:

commit 7e066fb8 tracepoints: add DECLARE_TRACE() and DEFINE_TRACE()
added the aligned(32) type and variable attribute to the tracepoint structures
to deal with gcc happily aligning statically defined structures on 32-byte
multiples.

One attempt was to use a 8-byte alignment for tracepoint structures by applying
both the variable and type attribute to tracepoint structures definitions and
declarations. It worked fine with gcc 4.5.1, but broke with gcc 4.4.4 and 4.4.5.

The reason is that the "aligned" attribute only specify the _minimum_ alignment
for a structure, leaving both the compiler and the linker free to align on
larger multiples. Because tracepoint.c expects the structures to be placed as an
array within each section, up-alignment cause NULL-pointer exceptions due to the
extra unexpected padding.

(this patch applies on top of -tip)

8 years agox86, mtrr: Avoid MTRR reprogramming on BP during boot on UP platforms
Suresh Siddha [Thu, 3 Feb 2011 01:02:55 +0000]
x86, mtrr: Avoid MTRR reprogramming on BP during boot on UP platforms

Markus Kohn ran into a hard hang regression on an acer aspire
1310, when acpi is enabled. git bisect showed the following
commit as the bad one that introduced the boot regression.

commit d0af9eed5aa91b6b7b5049cae69e5ea956fd85c3
Author: Suresh Siddha <suresh.b.siddha@intel.com>
Date:   Wed Aug 19 18:05:36 2009 -0700

    x86, pat/mtrr: Rendezvous all the cpus for MTRR/PAT init

Because of the UP configuration of that platform,
native_smp_prepare_cpus() bailed out (in smp_sanity_check())
before doing the set_mtrr_aps_delayed_init()

Further down the boot path, native_smp_cpus_done() will call the
delayed MTRR initialization for the AP's (mtrr_aps_init()) with
mtrr_aps_delayed_init not set. This resulted in the boot
processor reprogramming its MTRR's to the values seen during the
start of the OS boot. While this is not needed ideally, this
shouldn't have caused any side-effects. This is because the
reprogramming of MTRR's (set_mtrr_state() that gets called via
set_mtrr()) will check if the live register contents are
different from what is being asked to write and will do the actual
write only if they are different.

BP's mtrr state is read during the start of the OS boot and
typically nothing would have changed when we ask to reprogram it
on BP again because of the above scenario on an UP platform. So
on a normal UP platform no reprogramming of BP MTRR MSR's
happens and all is well.

However, on this platform, bios seems to be modifying the fixed
mtrr range registers between the start of OS boot and when we
double check the live registers for reprogramming BP MTRR
registers. And as the live registers are modified, we end up
reprogramming the MTRR's to the state seen during the start of
the OS boot.

During ACPI initialization, something in the bios (probably smi
handler?) don't like this fact and results in a hard lockup.

We didn't see this boot hang issue on this platform before the
commit d0af9eed5aa91b6b7b5049cae69e5ea956fd85c3, because only
the AP's (if any) will program its MTRR's to the value that BP
had at the start of the OS boot.

Fix this issue by checking mtrr_aps_delayed_init before
continuing further in the mtrr_aps_init(). Now, only AP's (if
any) will program its MTRR's to the BP values during boot.

Addresses https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=623393

  [ By the way, this behavior of the bios modifying MTRR's after the start
    of the OS boot is not common and the kernel is not prepared to
    handle this situation well. Irrespective of this issue, during
    suspend/resume, linux kernel will try to reprogram the BP's MTRR values
    to the values seen during the start of the OS boot. So suspend/resume might
    be already broken on this platform for all linux kernel versions. ]

8 years agomemcg: never OOM when charging huge pages

memcg: never OOM when charging huge pages

Huge page coverage should obviously have less priority than the continued
execution of a process.

Never kill a process when charging it a huge page fails.  Instead, give up
after the first failed reclaim attempt and fall back to regular pages.

8 years agomemcg: prevent endless loop when charging huge pages to near-limit group
Johannes Weiner [Tue, 1 Feb 2011 23:52:43 +0000]
memcg: prevent endless loop when charging huge pages to near-limit group

If reclaim after a failed charging was unsuccessful, the limits are
checked again, just in case they settled by means of other tasks.

This is all fine as long as every charge is of size PAGE_SIZE, because in
that case, being below the limit means having at least PAGE_SIZE bytes
available.

But with transparent huge pages, we may end up in an endless loop where
charging and reclaim fail, but we keep going because the limits are not
yet exceeded, although not allowing for a huge page.

Fix this up by explicitely checking for enough room, not just whether we
are within limits.

Johannes Weiner [Tue, 1 Feb 2011 23:52:42 +0000]
memcg: prevent endless loop when charging huge pages

The charging code can encounter a charge size that is bigger than a
regular page in two situations: one is a batched charge to fill the
per-cpu stocks, the other is a huge page charge.

This code is distributed over two functions, however, and only the outer
one is aware of huge pages.  In case the charging fails, the inner
function will tell the outer function to retry if the charge size is
bigger than regular pages--assuming batched charging is the only case.
And the outer function will retry forever charging a huge page.

This patch makes sure the inner function can distinguish between batch
charging and a single huge page charge.  It will only signal another
attempt if batch charging failed, and go into regular reclaim when it is
called on behalf of a huge page.

8 years agothp: fix unsuitable behavior for hwpoisoned tail page
Jin Dongming [Tue, 1 Feb 2011 23:52:41 +0000]
thp: fix unsuitable behavior for hwpoisoned tail page

When a tail page of THP is poisoned, memory-failure will do nothing except
setting PG_hwpoison, while the expected behavior is that the process, who
is using the poisoned tail page, should be killed.

The above problem is caused by lru check of the poisoned tail page of THP.
Because PG_lru flag is only set on the head page of THP, the check always
consider the poisoned tail page as NON lru page.

So the lru check for the tail page of THP should be avoided, as like as
hugetlb.

This patch adds !PageTransCompound() before lru check for THP, because of
the check (!PageHuge() && !PageTransCompound()) the whole branch could be
optimized away at build time when both hugetlbfs and THP are set with "N"
(or in archs not supporting either of those).

8 years agothp: fix the wrong reported address of hwpoisoned hugepages
Jin Dongming [Tue, 1 Feb 2011 23:52:40 +0000]
thp: fix the wrong reported address of hwpoisoned hugepages

When the tail page of THP is poisoned, the head page will be poisoned too.
 And the wrong address, address of head page, will be sent with sigbus
always.

So when the poisoned page is used by Guest OS which is running on KVM,
after the address changing(hva->gpa) by qemu, the unexpected process on
Guest OS will be killed by sigbus.

What we expected is that the process using the poisoned tail page could be
killed on Guest OS, but not that the process using the healthy head page
is killed.

Since it is not good to poison the healthy page, avoid poisoning other
than the page which is really poisoned.
  (While we poison all pages in a huge page in case of hugetlb,
   we can do this for THP thanks to split_huge_page().)

Here we fix two parts:
  1. Isolate the poisoned page only to make sure
     the reported address is the address of poisoned page.
  2. make the poisoned page work as the poisoned regular page.

8 years agothp: fix splitting of hwpoisoned hugepages
Jin Dongming [Tue, 1 Feb 2011 23:52:39 +0000]
thp: fix splitting of hwpoisoned hugepages

The poisoned THP is now split with split_huge_page() in
collect_procs_anon().  If kmalloc() is failed in collect_procs(),
split_huge_page() could not be called.  And the work after
split_huge_page() for collecting the processes using poisoned page will
not be done, too.  So the processes using the poisoned page could not be
killed.

The condition becomes worse when CONFIG_DEBUG_VM == "Y".  Because the
poisoned THP could not be split, system panic will be caused by
VM_BUG_ON(PageTransHuge(page)) in try_to_unmap().

This patch does:
  1. move split_huge_page() to the place before collect_procs().
     This can be sure the failure of splitting THP is caused by itself.
  2. when splitting THP is failed, stop the operations after it.
     This can avoid unexpected system panic or non sense works.
