13 years ago[PATCH] Switch getnstimestamp() calls to ktime_get_ts()
Matt Helsley [Tue, 10 Jan 2006 04:52:40 +0000]
[PATCH] Switch getnstimestamp() calls to ktime_get_ts()

Use ktime_get_ts() to take the timestamp instead of getnstimestamp().  This
patch prepares to remove getnstimestamp() by switching its only user to a
different function with almost exactly the same code.

Matt Helsley [Tue, 10 Jan 2006 04:52:39 +0000]
[PATCH] Export ktime_get_ts()

This series removes the getnstimestamp() function from kernel/time.c in favor
of kernel/hrtimer.c's ktime_get_ts() function which currently does exactly the
same thing: retrieves a high-resolution (ns) timespec structure and performs
the wall_to_monotonic adjustment.

This patch:

Export ktime_get_ts() to be used as a timestamp function since it uses
getnstimefoday() and does the wall_to_monotonic adjustment.

[PATCH] per-mountpoint noatime/nodiratime

Turn noatime and nodiratime into per-mount instead of per-sb flags.

After all the preparations this is a rather trivial patch.  The mount code
needs to treat the two options as per-mount instead of per-superblock, and
touch_atime needs to be changed to check the new MNT_ flags in addition to
the MS_ flags that are kept for filesystems that are always
noatime/nodiratime but not user settable anymore.  Besides that core code
only nfs needed an update because it's leaving atime updates to the server
and thus sets the S_NOATIME flag on every inode, but needs to know whether
it's a real noatime mount for an getattr optimization.

While we're at it I've killed the IS_NOATIME/IS_NODIRATIME macros that were
only used by touch_atime.

[PATCH] sanitize building of fs/compat_ioctl.c

Now that all these entries in the arch ioctl32.c files are gone [1], we can
build fs/compat_ioctl.c as a normal object and kill tons of cruft.  We need a
special do_ioctl32_pointer handler for s390 so the compat_ptr call is done.
This is not needed but harmless on all other architectures.  Also remove some
superflous includes in fs/compat_ioctl.c

Tested on ppc64.

[1] parisc still had it's PPP handler left, which is not fully correct
    for ppp and besides that ppp uses the generic SIOCPRIV ioctl so it'd
    kick in for all netdevice users.  We can introduce a proper handler
    in one of the next patch series by adding a compat_ioctl method to
    struct net_device but for now let's just kill it - parisc doesn't
    compile in mainline anyway and I don't want this to block this

After my lookup_hash patch ->d_revalidate always gets a valid struct nameidata
passed (unless you use lookup_one_len which autofs4 doesn't), so we can switch
it from update_atime to touch_atime.  This is a bit of an academic excercise
because autofs has a 1:1 vfsmount superblock relation, but I want to get rid
of update_atime so filesystems authors can't easily screw up per-mountpoint

[PATCH] replace inode_update_time with file_update_time

To allow various options to work per-mount instead of per-sb we need a
struct vfsmount when updating ctime and mtime.  This preparation patch
replaces the inode_update_time routine with a file_update_atime routine so
we can easily get at the vfsmount.  (and the file makes more sense in this
context anyway).  Also get rid of the unused second argument - we always
want to update the ctime when calling this routine.

The xattr code has rather complex permission checks because the rules are very
different for different attribute namespaces.  This patch moves as much as we
can into the generic code.  Currently all the major disk based filesystems
duplicate these checks, while many minor filesystems or network filesystems
lack some or all of them.

To do this we need defines for the extended attribute names in common code, I
moved them up from JFS which had the nicest defintions.

[PATCH] kexec: change CONFIG_PHYSICAL_START dependency

I have heard some complaints about people not finding CONFIG_CRASH_DUMP
option and also some objections about its dependency on CONFIG_EMBEDDED.
The following patch ends that dependency.  I thought of hiding it under
CONFIG_KEXEC, but CONFIG_PHYSICAL_START could also be used for some reasons
other than kexec/kdump and hence left it visible.  I will also update the
documentation accordingly.

o Following patch removes the config dependency of CONFIG_PHYSICAL_START
  on CONFIG_EMBEDDED. The reason being CONFIG_CRASH_DUMP option for
  kdump needs CONFIG_PHYSICAL_START which makes CONFIG_CRASH_DUMP depend
  on CONFIG_EMBEDDED. It is not always obvious for kdump users to choose
  CONFIG_EMBEDDED.

o It also shifts the palce where this option appears, to make it closer
  to kexec and kdump options.

Vivek Goyal [Tue, 10 Jan 2006 04:51:49 +0000]
[PATCH] kdump: x86_64 save cpu registers upon crash

- Saving the cpu registers of all cpus before booting in to the crash
  kernel.

- crash_setup_regs will save the registers of the cpu on which panic has
  occured.  One of the concerns ppc64 folks raised is that after capturing the
  register states, one should not pop the current call frame and push new one.
   Hence it has been inlined.  More call frames later get pushed on to stack
  (machine_crash_shutdown() and machine_kexec()), but one will not want to
  backtrace those.

- Not very sure about the CFI annotations.  With this patch I am getting
  decent backtrace with gdb.  Assuming, compiler has generated enough
  debugging information for crash_kexec().  Coding crash_setup_regs() in pure
  assembly makes it tricky because then it can not be inlined and we don't
  want to return back after capturing register states we don't want to pop
  this call frame.

- Saving the non-panicing cpus registers will be done in the NMI handler
  while shooting down them in machine_crash_shutdown.

- Introducing CRASH_DUMP option in Kconfig for x86_64.

Vivek Goyal [Tue, 10 Jan 2006 04:51:44 +0000]
[PATCH] kdump: save registers early (inline functions)

- If system panics then cpu register states are captured through funciton
  crash_get_current_regs().  This is not a inline function hence a stack frame
  is pushed on to the stack and then cpu register state is captured.  Later
  this frame is popped and new frames are pushed (machine_kexec).

- In theory this is not very right as we are capturing register states for a
  frame and that frame is no more valid.  This seems to have created back
  trace problems for ppc64.

- This patch fixes it up.  The very first thing it does after entering
  crash_kexec() is to capture the register states.  Anyway we don't want the
  back trace beyond crash_kexec().  crash_get_current_regs() has been made
  inline

- crash_setup_regs() is the top architecture dependent function which should
  be responsible for capturing the register states as well as to do some
  architecture dependent tricks.  For ex.  fixing up ss and esp for i386.
  crash_setup_regs() has also been made inline to ensure no new call frame is
  pushed onto stack.

Vivek Goyal [Tue, 10 Jan 2006 04:51:41 +0000]
[PATCH] kdump: dynamic per cpu allocation of memory for saving cpu registers

- In case of system crash, current state of cpu registers is saved in memory
  in elf note format.  So far memory for storing elf notes was being allocated
  statically for NR_CPUS.

- This patch introduces dynamic allocation of memory for storing elf notes.
  It uses alloc_percpu() interface.  This should lead to better memory usage.

- Introduced based on Andi Kleen's and Eric W. Biederman's suggestions.

- This patch also moves memory allocation for elf notes from architecture
  dependent portion to architecture independent portion.  Now crash_notes is
  architecture independent.  The whole idea is that size of memory to be
  allocated per cpu (MAX_NOTE_BYTES) can be architecture dependent and
  allocation of this memory can be architecture independent.

[PATCH] dump_thread() cleanup

\r)

From: Adrian Bunk <bunk@stusta.de>

- create one common dump_thread() prototype in kernel.h

- dump_thread() is only used in fs/binfmt_aout.c and can therefore be
  removed on all architectures where CONFIG_BINFMT_AOUT is not
  available

It seems the "make UID16 support optional" patch was checked when it
edited the -tiny tree some time ago, but it wasn't checked whether it
still matches the current situation when it was submitted for inclusion
in -mm. This patch fixes the following bugs:
- ARCH_S390X does no longer exist, nowadays this has to be expressed
  through (S390 && 64BIT)
- in five architecture specific Kconfig files the UID16 options
  weren't removed

Additionally, it changes the fragile negative dependencies of UID16 to
positive dependencies (new architectures are more likely to not require
UID16 support).

[PATCH] mutex subsystem, add asm-generic/mutex-[dec|xchg|null].h implementations

Add three (generic) mutex fastpath implementations.

The mutex-xchg.h implementation is atomic_xchg() based, and should
work fine on every architecture.

The mutex-dec.h implementation is atomic_dec_return() based - this
one too should work on every architecture, but might not perform the
most optimally on architectures that have no atomic-dec/inc instructions.

The mutex-null.h implementation forces all calls into the slowpath. This
is used for mutex debugging, but it can also be used on platforms that do
not want (or need) a fastpath at all.
