8 years agomm: pincer in truncate_inode_pages_range
Hugh Dickins [Tue, 26 Jul 2011 00:12:25 +0000]
mm: pincer in truncate_inode_pages_range

truncate_inode_pages_range()'s final loop has a nice pincer property,
bringing start and end together, squeezing out the last pages.  But the
range handling missed out on that, just sliding up the range, perhaps
letting pages come in behind it.  Add one more test to give it the same
pincer effect.

8 years agomm: consistent truncate and invalidate loops
Hugh Dickins [Tue, 26 Jul 2011 00:12:25 +0000]
mm: consistent truncate and invalidate loops

Make the pagevec_lookup loops in truncate_inode_pages_range(),
invalidate_mapping_pages() and invalidate_inode_pages2_range() more
consistent with each other.

They were relying upon page->index of an unlocked page, but apologizing
for it: accept it, embrace it, add comments and WARN_ONs, and simplify the
index handling.

invalidate_inode_pages2_range() had special handling for a wrapped
page->index + 1 = 0 case; but MAX_LFS_FILESIZE doesn't let us anywhere
near there, and a corrupt page->index in the radix_tree could cause more
trouble than that would catch.  Remove that wrapped handling.

invalidate_inode_pages2_range() uses min() to limit the pagevec_lookup
when near the end of the range: copy that into the other two, although
it's less useful than you might think (it limits the use of the buffer,
rather than the indices looked up).

expect unmap_mapping_range() to do.

vmtruncate_range() is currently called only with page-aligned start and
end+1: can handle unaligned start, but unaligned end+1 would hit BUG_ON in

/proc/pid/oom_adj is deprecated and scheduled for removal in August 2012
according to Documentation/feature-removal-schedule.txt.

This patch makes the warning more verbose by making it appear as a more
serious problem (the presence of a stack trace and being multiline should
attract more attention) so that applications still using the old interface
can get fixed.

Very popular users of the old interface have been converted since the oom
killer rewrite has been introduced.  udevd switched to the
/proc/pid/oom_score_adj interface for v162, kde switched in 4.6.1, and
opensshd switched in 5.7p1.

At the start of 2012, this should be changed into a WARN() to emit all
such incidents and then finally remove the tunable in August 2012 as
scheduled.

xen/balloon: memory hotplug support for Xen balloon driver

Memory hotplug support for Xen balloon driver.  It should be mentioned
that hotplugged memory is not onlined automatically.  It should be onlined
by user through standard sysfs interface.

Memory could be hotplugged in following steps:

  1) dom0: xl mem-max <domU> <maxmem>
     where <maxmem> is >= requested memory size,

  2) dom0: xl mem-set <domU> <memory>
     where <memory> is requested memory size; alternatively memory
     could be added by writing proper value to
     /sys/devices/system/xen_memory/xen_memory0/target or
     /sys/devices/system/xen_memory/xen_memory0/target_kb on dumU,

  3) domU: for i in /sys/devices/system/memory/memory*/state; do \
             [ "`cat "$i"`" = offline ] && echo online > "$i"; done

Memory could be onlined automatically on domU by adding following line to
udev rules:

  SUBSYSTEM=="memory", ACTION=="add", RUN+="/bin/sh -c '[ -f /sys$devpath/state ] && echo online > /sys$devpath/state'"

In that case step 3 should be omitted.

mm: extend memory hotplug API to allow memory hotplug in virtual machines

This patch contains online_page_callback and apropriate functions for
registering/unregistering online page callbacks.  It allows to do some
machine specific tasks during online page stage which is required to
implement memory hotplug in virtual machines.  Currently this patch is
required by latest memory hotplug support for Xen balloon driver patch
which will be posted soon.

Additionally, originial online_page() function was splited into
following functions doing "atomic" operations:

  - __online_page_set_limits() - set new limits for memory management code,
  - __online_page_increment_counters() - increment totalram_pages and totalhigh_pages,
  - __online_page_free() - free page to allocator.

It was done to:
  - not duplicate existing code,
  - ease hotplug code devolpment by usage of well defined interface,
  - avoid stupid bugs which are unavoidable when the same code
    (by design) is developed in many places.

8 years agobacklight: set backlight type and max_brightness before backlights are registered
Axel Lin [Tue, 26 Jul 2011 00:12:01 +0000]
backlight: set backlight type and max_brightness before backlights are registered

Since commit a19a6ee "backlight: Allow properties to be passed at
registration" and commit bb7ca74 "backlight: add backlight type", we can
set backlight type and max_brightness before backlights are registered.
Some newly added drivers did not set it properly, let's fix it.

8 years agomm/backing-dev.c: reset bdi min_ratio in bdi_unregister()
Peter Zijlstra [Tue, 26 Jul 2011 00:11:57 +0000]
mm/backing-dev.c: reset bdi min_ratio in bdi_unregister()

Vito said:

: The system has many usb disks coming and going day to day, with their
: respective bdi's having min_ratio set to 1 when inserted.  It works for
: some time until eventually min_ratio can no longer be set, even when the
: active set of bdi's seen in /sys/class/bdi/*/min_ratio doesn't add up to
: anywhere near 100.
:
: This then leads to an unrelated starvation problem caused by write-heavy
: fuse mounts being used atop the usb disks, a problem the min_ratio setting
: at the underlying devices bdi effectively prevents.

Fix this leakage by resetting the bdi min_ratio when unregistering the
BDI.

ipc/sem.c: fix race with concurrent semtimedop() timeouts and IPC_RMID

If a semaphore array is removed and in parallel a sleeping task is woken
up (signal or timeout, does not matter), then the woken up task does not
wait until wake_up_sem_queue_do() is completed.  This will cause crashes,
because wake_up_sem_queue_do() will read from a stale pointer.

The fix is simple: Regardless of anything, always call get_queue_result().
This function waits until wake_up_sem_queue_do() has finished it's task.

XZ: Fix missing <linux/kernel.h> include

<linux/kernel.h> is needed for min_t. The old version
happened to work on x86 because <asm/unaligned.h>
indirectly includes <linux/kernel.h>, but it didn't
work on ARM.

<linux/kernel.h> includes <asm/byteorder.h> so it's
not necessary to include it explicitly anymore.

modpost: Fix modpost's license checking V3

The commit f02e8a6 sorts symbols placing each of them in its own elf section.
The sorting and merging into the canonical sections are done by the linker.
Unfortunately modpost to generate Module.symvers file parses vmlinux
(already linked) and all modules object files (which aren't linked yet).
These aren't sanitized by the linker yet. That breaks modpost that can't
detect license properly for modules. This patch makes modpost aware of
the new exported symbols structure.

Thanks to Arnaud Lacombe <lacombar@gmail.com> and Anders Kaseorg
<andersk@ksplice.com> for providing useful suggestions about code.

This work was supported by a hardware donation from the CE Linux Forum.

Userspace wants to manage module parameters with udev rules.
This currently only works for loaded modules, but not for
built-in ones.

To allow access to the built-in modules we need to
re-trigger all module load events that happened before any
userspace was running. We already do the same thing for all

KVM: IOMMU: Disable device assignment without interrupt remapping

IOMMU interrupt remapping support provides a further layer of
isolation for device assignment by preventing arbitrary interrupt
block DMA writes by a malicious guest from reaching the host.  By
default, we should require that the platform provides interrupt
remapping support, with an opt-in mechanism for existing behavior.

Both AMD IOMMU and Intel VT-d2 hardware support interrupt
remapping, however we currently only have software support on
the Intel side.  Users wishing to re-enable device assignment
when interrupt remapping is not supported on the platform can
use the "allow_unsafe_assigned_interrupts=1" module option.

Xiao Guangrong [Mon, 11 Jul 2011 19:33:44 +0000]
KVM: MMU: mmio page fault support

The idea is from Avi:

| We could cache the result of a miss in an spte by using a reserved bit, and
| checking the page fault error code (or seeing if we get an ept violation or
| ept misconfiguration), so if we get repeated mmio on a page, we don't need to
| search the slot list/tree.
| (https://lkml.org/lkml/2011/2/22/221)

When the page fault is caused by mmio, we cache the info in the shadow page
table, and also set the reserved bits in the shadow page table, so if the mmio
is caused again, we can quickly identify it and emulate it directly

Searching mmio gfn in memslots is heavy since we need to walk all memeslots, it
can be reduced by this feature, and also avoid walking guest page table for
soft mmu.

[S390] dasd: add enhanced DASD statistics interface

This patch extends the DASD statistics to allow for a more detailed
analysis of DASD I/O operations. In particular we want the statistics
to provide answers to the following questions:
- How many requests used a PAV alias?
- How many requests used High Performance FICON?
- How do read request perform versus write requests?

The existing DASD statistics interface has several shortcomings
- The interface for global data is a formatted text table in procfs
  (/proc/dasd/statistics). The layout is meant for human readers and
  is not to easy to parse. If values get to large for the table
  layout, they get scaled down.
- The statistics which are collected per block device can be
  accessed via an ioctl interface, which can only be extended by
  defining a new ioctl.
- There is no statistics interface for individual PAV base and alias
  devices.

To overcome theses shortcomings we create a new DASD statistics
interface in debugfs. This interface will contain one entry for global
data, one per DASD block device, and one per DASD base and alias
device. Each file contains the statistic data in easy to parse
name/value and name/array pairs. The existing interfaces will remain
functional, but they will not be extended.

The (un-)register_external_interrupt functions are not race safe if
more than one interrupt handler is added or deleted for an external
interrupt concurrently.

Make the registration / unregistration of external interrupts race safe
by using RCU and a spinlock. RCU is used to avoid a performance penalty
in the external interrupt handler, the register and unregister functions
are protected by the spinlock and are not performance critical.
call_rcu must be used since the SCLP driver uses the interface with
IRQs disabled. Also use the generic list implementation rather than
homebrewn list code.

[S390] kvm guest address space mapping

Add code that allows KVM to control the virtual memory layout that
is seen by a guest. The guest address space uses a second page table
that shares the last level pte-tables with the process page table.
If a page is unmapped from the process page table it is automatically
unmapped from the guest page table as well.

The guest address space mapping starts out empty, KVM can map any
individual 1MB segments from the process virtual memory to any 1MB
aligned location in the guest virtual memory. If a target segment in
the process virtual memory does not exist or is unmapped while a
guest mapping exists the desired target address is stored as an
invalid segment table entry in the guest page table.
The population of the guest page table is fault driven.
