percpu: Introduce a read-mostly percpu API

Add a new readmostly percpu section and API.  This can be used to
avoid dirtying data lines which are generally not written to, which is
especially important for data which may be accessed by processors
other than the one for which the percpu area belongs to.

10 years agox86, mm: Hold mm->page_table_lock while doing vmalloc_sync
Jeremy Fitzhardinge [Tue, 21 Sep 2010 19:01:51 +0000]
x86, mm: Hold mm->page_table_lock while doing vmalloc_sync

Take mm->page_table_lock while syncing the vmalloc region.  This prevents
a race with the Xen pagetable pin/unpin code, which expects that the
page_table_lock is already held.  If this race occurs, then Xen can see
an inconsistent page type (a page can either be read/write or a pagetable
page, and pin/unpin converts it between them), which will cause either
the pin or the set_p[gm]d to fail; either will crash the kernel.

vmalloc_sync_all() should be called rarely, so this extra use of
page_table_lock should not interfere with its normal users.

The mm pointer is stashed in the pgd page's index field, as that won't
be otherwise used for pgds.

10 years agomm, x86: Saving vmcore with non-lazy freeing of vmas
Cliff Wickman [Thu, 16 Sep 2010 16:44:02 +0000]
mm, x86: Saving vmcore with non-lazy freeing of vmas

During the reading of /proc/vmcore the kernel is doing
ioremap()/iounmap() repeatedly. And the buildup of un-flushed
vm_area_struct's is causing a great deal of overhead. (rb_next()
is chewing up most of that time).

This solution is to provide function set_iounmap_nonlazy(). It
causes a subsequent call to iounmap() to immediately purge the
vma area (with try_purge_vmap_area_lazy()).

With this patch we have seen the time for writing a 250MB
compressed dump drop from 71 seconds to 44 seconds.

x86, kdump: Change copy_oldmem_page() to use cached addressing

The copy of /proc/vmcore to a user buffer proceeds much faster
if the kernel addresses memory as cached.

With this patch we have seen an increase in transfer rate from
less than 15MB/s to 80-460MB/s, depending on size of the
transfer. This makes a big difference in time needed to save a

10 years agox86, mm: Avoid unnecessary TLB flush
Shaohua Li [Mon, 16 Aug 2010 01:16:55 +0000]
x86, mm: Avoid unnecessary TLB flush

In x86, access and dirty bits are set automatically by CPU when CPU accesses
memory. When we go into the code path of below flush_tlb_fix_spurious_fault(),
we already set dirty bit for pte and don't need flush tlb. This might mean
tlb entry in some CPUs hasn't dirty bit set, but this doesn't matter. When
the CPUs do page write, they will automatically check the bit and no software
involved.

On the other hand, flush tlb in below position is harmful. Test creates CPU
number of threads, each thread writes to a same but random address in same vma
range and we measure the total time. Under a 4 socket system, original time is
1.96s, while with the patch, the time is 0.8s. Under a 2 socket system, there is
20% time cut too. perf shows a lot of time are taking to send ipi/handle ipi for
tlb flush.

10 years agoworkqueue: Add basic tracepoints to track workqueue execution
Arjan van de Ven [Sat, 21 Aug 2010 20:07:26 +0000]
workqueue: Add basic tracepoints to track workqueue execution

With the introduction of the new unified work queue thread pools,
we lost one feature: It's no longer possible to know which worker
is causing the CPU to wake out of idle. The result is that PowerTOP
now reports a lot of "kworker/a:b" instead of more readable results.

This patch adds a pair of tracepoints to the new workqueue code,
similar in style to the timer/hrtimer tracepoints.

With this pair of tracepoints, the next PowerTOP can correctly
report which work item caused the wakeup (and how long it took):

Interrupt (43)            i915      time   3.51ms    wakeups 141
Work      ieee80211_iface_work      time   0.81ms    wakeups  29

Documentation: kernel-locking: mutex_trylock cannot be used in interrupt context

Chapter 6 is right about mutex_trylock, but chapter 10 wasn't.  This error
was introduced during semaphore-to-mutex conversion of the Unreliable
guide.  :-)

If user context which performs mutex_lock() or mutex_trylock() is
preempted by interrupt context which performs mutex_trylock() on the same
mutex instance, a deadlock occurs.  This is because these functions do not
disable local IRQs when they operate on mutex->wait_lock.

When testing cpu hotplug code on 32-bit we kept hitting the "CPU%d:
Stuck ??" message due to multiple cores concurrently accessing the
cpu_callin_mask, among others.

Since these codepaths are not protected from concurrent access due to
the fact that there's no sane reason for making an already complex
code unnecessarily more complex - we hit the issue only when insanely
switching cores off- and online - serialize hotplugging cores on the

10 years agox86-32: Separate 1:1 pagetables from swapper_pg_dir
Joerg Roedel [Mon, 16 Aug 2010 12:38:33 +0000]
x86-32: Separate 1:1 pagetables from swapper_pg_dir

This patch fixes machine crashes which occur when heavily exercising the
CPU hotplug codepaths on a 32-bit kernel. These crashes are caused by
AMD Erratum 383 and result in a fatal machine check exception. Here's
the scenario:

1. On 32-bit, the swapper_pg_dir page table is used as the initial page
table for booting a secondary CPU.

2. To make this work, swapper_pg_dir needs a direct mapping of physical
memory in it (the low mappings). By adding those low, large page (2M)
mappings (PAE kernel), we create the necessary conditions for Erratum
383 to occur.

3. Other CPUs which do not participate in the off- and onlining game may
use swapper_pg_dir while the low mappings are present (when leave_mm is
called). For all steps below, the CPU referred to is a CPU that is using
swapper_pg_dir, and not the CPU which is being onlined.

4. The presence of the low mappings in swapper_pg_dir can result
in TLB entries for addresses below __PAGE_OFFSET to be established
speculatively. These TLB entries are marked global and large.

5. When the CPU with such TLB entry switches to another page table, this
TLB entry remains because it is global.

6. The process then generates an access to an address covered by the
above TLB entry but there is a permission mismatch - the TLB entry
covers a large global page not accessible to userspace.

7. Due to this permission mismatch a new 4kb, user TLB entry gets
established. Further, Erratum 383 provides for a small window of time
where both TLB entries are present. This results in an uncorrectable
machine check exception signalling a TLB multimatch which panics the
machine.

There are two ways to fix this issue:

        1. Always do a global TLB flush when a new cr3 is loaded and the
        old page table was swapper_pg_dir. I consider this a hack hard
        to understand and with performance implications

        2. Do not use swapper_pg_dir to boot secondary CPUs like 64-bit
        does.

This patch implements solution 2. It introduces a trampoline_pg_dir
which has the same layout as swapper_pg_dir with low_mappings. This page
table is used as the initial page table of the booting CPU. Later in the
bringup process, it switches to swapper_pg_dir and does a global TLB
flush. This fixes the crashes in our test cases.

-v2: switch to swapper_pg_dir right after entering start_secondary() so
that we are able to access percpu data which might not be mapped in the
trampoline page table.

With some hardware combinations, the PCM interrupts are acknowledged
before the period boundary from the emu10k1 chip. The midlevel PCM code
gets confused and the playback stream is interrupted.

It seems that the interrupt processing shift by 2 samples is enough
to fix this issue. This default value does not harm other,

fs: brlock vfsmount_lock

Use a brlock for the vfsmount lock. It must be taken for write whenever
modifying the mount hash or associated fields, and may be taken for read when
performing mount hash lookups.

A new lock is added for the mnt-id allocator, so it doesn't need to take
the heavy vfsmount write-lock.

The number of atomics should remain the same for fastpath rlock cases, though
code would be slightly slower due to per-cpu access. Scalability is not not be
much improved in common cases yet, due to other locks (ie. dcache_lock) getting
in the way. However path lookups crossing mountpoints should be one case where
scalability is improved (currently requiring the global lock).

The slowpath is slower due to use of brlock. On a 64 core, 64 socket, 32 node
Altix system (high latency to remote nodes), a simple umount microbenchmark
(mount --bind mnt mnt2 ; umount mnt2 loop 1000 times), before this patch it
took 6.8s, afterwards took 7.1s, about 5% slower.

10 years agofs: scale files_lock
Nick Piggin [Tue, 17 Aug 2010 18:37:38 +0000]
fs: scale files_lock

fs: scale files_lock

Improve scalability of files_lock by adding per-cpu, per-sb files lists,
protected with an lglock. The lglock provides fast access to the per-cpu lists
to add and remove files. It also provides a snapshot of all the per-cpu lists
(although this is very slow).

One difficulty with this approach is that a file can be removed from the list
by another CPU. We must track which per-cpu list the file is on with a new
variale in the file struct (packed into a hole on 64-bit archs). Scalability
could suffer if files are frequently removed from different cpu's list.

However loads with frequent removal of files imply short interval between
adding and removing the files, and the scheduler attempts to avoid moving
processes too far away. Also, even in the case of cross-CPU removal, the
hardware has much more opportunity to parallelise cacheline transfers with N
cachelines than with 1.

A worst-case test of 1 CPU allocating files subsequently being freed by N CPUs
degenerates to contending on a single lock, which is no worse than before. When
more than one CPU are allocating files, even if they are always freed by
different CPUs, there will be more parallelism than the single-lock case.

Testing results:

On a 2 socket, 8 core opteron, I measure the number of times the lock is taken
to remove the file, the number of times it is removed by the same CPU that
added it, and the number of times it is removed by the same node that added it.

Booting:    locks=  25049 cpu-hits=  23174 (92.5%) node-hits=  23945 (95.6%)
kbuild -j16 locks=2281913 cpu-hits=2208126 (96.8%) node-hits=2252674 (98.7%)
dbench 64   locks=4306582 cpu-hits=4287247 (99.6%) node-hits=4299527 (99.8%)

So a file is removed from the same CPU it was added by over 90% of the time.
It remains within the same node 95% of the time.

Tim Chen ran some numbers for a 64 thread Nehalem system performing a compile.

                throughput
2.6.34-rc2      24.5
+patch          24.9

+patch          53.75   18.5    19      8.75

So significantly less CPU time spent in kernel code, higher idle time and
slightly higher throughput.

Single threaded performance difference was within the noise of microbenchmarks.
That is not to say penalty does not exist, the code is larger and more memory
accesses required so it will be slightly slower.

lglock: introduce special lglock and brlock spin locks

lglock: introduce special lglock and brlock spin locks

This patch introduces "local-global" locks (lglocks). These can be used to:

- Provide fast exclusive access to per-CPU data, with exclusive access to
  another CPU's data allowed but possibly subject to contention, and to provide
  very slow exclusive access to all per-CPU data.
- Or to provide very fast and scalable read serialisation, and to provide
  very slow exclusive serialisation of data (not necessarily per-CPU data).

Brlocks are also implemented as a short-hand notation for the latter use
case.

Thanks to Paul for local/global naming convention.

10 years agotty: fix fu_list abuse
Nick Piggin [Tue, 17 Aug 2010 18:37:36 +0000]
tty: fix fu_list abuse

tty: fix fu_list abuse

tty code abuses fu_list, which causes a bug in remount,ro handling.

If a tty device node is opened on a filesystem, then the last link to the inode
removed, the filesystem will be allowed to be remounted readonly. This is
because fs_may_remount_ro does not find the 0 link tty inode on the file sb
list (because the tty code incorrectly removed it to use for its own purpose).
This can result in a filesystem with errors after it is marked "clean".

Taking idea from Christoph's initial patch, allocate a tty private struct
at file->private_data and put our required list fields in there, linking
file and tty. This makes tty nodes behave the same way as other device nodes
and avoid meddling with the vfs, and avoids this bug.

The error handling is not trivial in the tty code, so for this bugfix, I take
the simple approach of using __GFP_NOFAIL and don't worry about memory errors.
This is not a problem because our allocator doesn't fail small allocs as a rule
anyway. So proper error handling is left as an exercise for tty hackers.

[ Arguably filesystem's device inode would ideally be divorced from the
driver's pseudo inode when it is opened, but in practice it's not clear whether
that will ever be worth implementing. ]

10 years agofs: remove extra lookup in __lookup_hash
Nick Piggin [Tue, 17 Aug 2010 18:37:34 +0000]
fs: remove extra lookup in __lookup_hash

fs: remove extra lookup in __lookup_hash

Optimize lookup for create operations, where no dentry should often be
common-case. In cases where it is not, such as unlink, the added overhead
is much smaller than the removed.

Also, move comments about __d_lookup racyness to the __d_lookup call site.
d_lookup is intuitive; __d_lookup is what needs commenting. So in that same
vein, add kerneldoc comments to __d_lookup and clean up some of the comments:

- We are interested in how the RCU lookup works here, particularly with
  renames. Make that explicit, and point to the document where it is explained
  in more detail.
- RCU is pretty standard now, and macros make implementations pretty mindless.
  If we want to know about RCU barrier details, we look in RCU code.
- Delete some boring legacy comments because we don't care much about how the
  code used to work, more about the interesting parts of how it works now. So
  comments about lazy LRU may be interesting, but would better be done in the
  LRU or refcount management code.

10 years agofs: fs_struct rwlock to spinlock
Nick Piggin [Tue, 17 Aug 2010 18:37:33 +0000]
fs: fs_struct rwlock to spinlock

fs: fs_struct rwlock to spinlock

struct fs_struct.lock is an rwlock with the read-side used to protect root and
pwd members while taking references to them. Taking a reference to a path
typically requires just 2 atomic ops, so the critical section is very small.
Parallel read-side operations would have cacheline contention on the lock, the
dentry, and the vfsmount cachelines, so the rwlock is unlikely to ever give a
real parallelism increase.

Replace it with a spinlock to avoid one or two atomic operations in typical
path lookup fastpath.

10 years agofs: fix do_lookup false negative
Nick Piggin [Tue, 17 Aug 2010 18:37:30 +0000]
fs: fix do_lookup false negative

fs: fix do_lookup false negative

In do_lookup, if we initially find no dentry, we take the directory i_mutex and
re-check the lookup. If we find a dentry there, then we revalidate it if
needed. However if that revalidate asks for the dentry to be invalidated, we
return -ENOENT from do_lookup. What should happen instead is an attempt to
allocate and lookup a new dentry.

This is probably not noticed because it is rare. It is only reached if a
concurrent create races in first (in which case, the dentry probably won't be
invalidated anyway), or if the racy __d_lookup has failed due to a
false-negative (which is very rare).

Fix this by removing code and have it use the normal reval path.

10 years agopxa3xx: fix ns2cycle equation

pxa3xx: fix ns2cycle equation

Test on a PXA310 platform with Samsung K9F2G08X0B NAND flash,
with tCH=5 and clk is 156MHz, ns2cycle(5, 156000000) returns -1.

ns2cycle returns negtive value will break NDTR0_tXX macros.

After checking the commit log, I found the problem is introduced by
commit 5b0d4d7c8a67c5ba3d35e6ceb0c5530cc6846db7
"[MTD] [NAND] pxa3xx: convert from ns to clock ticks more accurately"

To get num of clock cycles, we use below equation:
num of clock cycles = time (ns) / one clock cycle (ns) + 1
We need to add 1 cycle here because integer division will truncate the result.
It is possible the developers set the Min values in SPEC for timing settings.
Thus the truncate may cause problem, and it is safe to add an extra cycle here.

The various fields in NDTR{01} are in units of clock ticks minus one,
thus we should subtract 1 cycle then.

Thus the correct equation should be:
num of clock cycles = time (ns) / one clock cycle (ns) + 1 - 1
                    = time (ns) / one clock cycle (ns)
