12 years agoDocument SPIN_LOCK_UNLOCKED/RW_LOCK_UNLOCKED deprecation
Michael Ellerman [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:30:22 +0000]
Document SPIN_LOCK_UNLOCKED/RW_LOCK_UNLOCKED deprecation

Apparently it's not cool anymore to use SPIN/RW_LOCK_UNLOCKED.  There's
some mention of this in Documentation/spinlocks.txt, but that only talks
about dynamic initialisation.

A comment in the code mentioning the preferred usage would be good IMHO.

12 years agoIntroduce a handy list_first_entry macro
Pavel Emelianov [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:30:19 +0000]
Introduce a handy list_first_entry macro

There are many places in the kernel where the construction like

   foo = list_entry(head->next, struct foo_struct, list);

are used.
The code might look more descriptive and neat if using the macro

   list_first_entry(head, type, member) \
             list_entry((head)->next, type, member)

Here is the macro itself and the examples of its usage in the generic code.
 If it will turn out to be useful, I can prepare the set of patches to
inject in into arch-specific code, drivers, networking, etc.

highres/dyntick: prevent xtime lock contention

While the !highres/!dyntick code assigns the duty of the do_timer() call to
one specific CPU, this was dropped in the highres/dyntick part during
development.

Steven Rostedt discovered the xtime lock contention on highres/dyntick due
to several CPUs trying to update jiffies.

Add the single CPU assignement back.  In the dyntick case this needs to be
handled carefully, as the CPU which has the do_timer() duty must drop the
assignement and let it be grabbed by another CPU, which is active.
Otherwise the do_timer() calls would not happen during the long sleep.

12 years agofix hotplug for legacy platform drivers
David Brownell [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:29:39 +0000]
fix hotplug for legacy platform drivers

We've had various reports of some legacy "probe the hardware" style
platform drivers having nasty problems with hotplug support.

The core issue is that those legacy drivers don't fully conform to the
driver model.  They assume a role that should be the responsibility of
infrastructure code: creating device nodes.

The "modprobe" step in hotplugging relies on drivers to have split those
roles into different modules.  The lack of this split causes the problems.
When a driver creates nodes for devices that don't exist (sending a hotplug
event), then exits (aborting one modprobe) before the "modprobe $MODALIAS"
step completes (by failing, since it's in the middle of a modprobe), the
result can be an endless loop of modprobe invocations ...  badness.

This fix uses the newish per-device flag controlling issuance of "add"
events.  (A previous version of this patch used a per-device "driver can
hotplug" flag, which only scrubbed $MODALIAS from the environment rather
than suppressing the entire hotplug event.) It also shrinks that flag to
one bit, saving a word in "struct device".

So the net of this patch is removing some nasty failures with legacy
drivers, while retaining hotplug capability for the majority of platform
drivers.

prior to pushing the split strings on the @first_arg array, I split the
keywords before the array name as before and then keep the array name along
with the subscript expression as a single whole element which gets pushed
last.  In this manner, kernel-doc produces correct output without removing

When a binary format is unregistered and re-registered, register_binfmt

with -EBUSY.

Simon Horman [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:28:22 +0000]
kdump/kexec: calculate note size at compile time

Currently the size of the per-cpu region reserved to save crash notes is
set by the per-architecture value MAX_NOTE_BYTES.  Which in turn is
currently set to 1024 on all supported architectures.

While testing ia64 I recently discovered that this value is in fact too
small.  The particular setup I was using actually needs 1172 bytes.  This
lead to very tedious failure mode where the tail of one elf note would
overwrite the head of another if they ended up being alocated sequentially
by kmalloc, which was often the case.

It seems to me that a far better approach is to caclculate the size that
the area needs to be.  This patch does just that.

If a simpler stop-gap patch for ia64 to be squeezed into 2.6.21(.X) is
needed then this should be as easy as making MAX_NOTE_BYTES larger in
arch/asm-ia64/kexec.h.  Perhaps 2048 would be a good choice.  However, I
think that the approach in this patch is a much more robust idea.

12 years agoIgnore stolen time in the softlockup watchdog
Jeremy Fitzhardinge [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:28:02 +0000]
Ignore stolen time in the softlockup watchdog

The softlockup watchdog is currently a nuisance in a virtual machine, since
the whole system could have the CPU stolen from it for a long period of
time.  While it would be unlikely for a guest domain to be denied timer
interrupts for over 10s, it could happen and any softlockup message would
be completely spurious.

Earlier I proposed that sched_clock() return time in unstolen nanoseconds,
which is how Xen and VMI currently implement it.  If the softlockup
watchdog uses sched_clock() to measure time, it would automatically ignore
stolen time, and therefore only report when the guest itself locked up.
When running native, sched_clock() returns real-time nanoseconds, so the

Note that sched_clock() used this way is inherently per-cpu, so this patch

12 years agotime: SMP friendly alignment of struct clocksource
Eric Dumazet [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:27:57 +0000]
time: SMP friendly alignment of struct clocksource

struct clocksource is a critical data structure.

Most of its fields are read only, some of them are heavily modified at each
timer interrupt.

It makes sense to separate those fields and make sure they all share one
cache line, or at least the minimum for machines with small cache lines.

An irqaction structure won't be added to an IRQ descriptor irqaction list if
it doesn't agree with other irqactions on the IRQF_PERCPU flag.  Don't check

12 years agoAdd support for deferrable timers
Venki Pallipadi [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:27:44 +0000]
Add support for deferrable timers

Introduce a new flag for timers - deferrable: Timers that work normally
when system is busy.  But, will not cause CPU to come out of idle (just to
service this timer), when CPU is idle.  Instead, this timer will be
serviced when CPU eventually wakes up with a subsequent non-deferrable
timer.

The main advantage of this is to avoid unnecessary timer interrupts when
CPU is idle.  If the routine currently called by a timer can wait until
next event without any issues, this new timer can be used to setup timer
event for that routine.  This, with dynticks, allows CPUs to be lazy,
allowing them to stay in idle for extended period of time by reducing
unnecesary wakeup and thereby reducing the power consumption.

This patch:

Builds this new timer on top of existing timer infrastructure.  It uses
last bit in 'base' pointer of timer_list structure to store this deferrable
timer flag.  __next_timer_interrupt() function skips over these deferrable
timers when CPU looks for next timer event for which it has to wake up.

This is exported by a new interface init_timer_deferrable() that can be
called in place of regular init_timer().

12 years agoparport->dev driver model support
David Brownell [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:27:35 +0000]
parport->dev driver model support

Currently a parport_driver can't get a handle on the device node for the
underlying parport (PNPACPI, PCI, etc).  That prevents correct placement of
sysfs child nodes, which can affect things like power management.

This patch adds a field to "struct parport" pointing to that device node, and
updates non-legacy port drivers to initialize that device pointer.  That field
replaces the analagous PCI-only support in parport_pc.

Johannes Berg [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:27:20 +0000]
fix sscanf %n match at end of input string

I was playing with some code that sometimes got a string where a %n
match should have been done where the input string ended, for example
like this:

  sscanf("abc123", "abc%d%n", &a, &n);  /* doesn't work */
  sscanf("abc123a", "abc%d%n", &a, &n); /* works */

However, the scanf function in the kernel doesn't convert the %n in that
case because it has already matched the complete input after %d and just
completely stops matching then. This patch fixes that.

12 years agotty: introduce no_tty and use it in selinux
Eric W. Biederman [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:26:56 +0000]
tty: introduce no_tty and use it in selinux

While researching the tty layer pid leaks I found a weird case in selinux when
we drop a controlling tty because of inadequate permissions we don't do the
normal hangup processing.  Which is a problem if it happens the session leader
has exec'd something that can no longer access the tty.

We already have code in the kernel to handle this case in the form of the
TIOCNOTTY ioctl.  So this patch factors out a helper function that is the
essence of that ioctl and calls it from the selinux code.

This removes the inconsistency in handling dropping of a controlling tty and
who knows it might even make some part of user space happy because it received
a SIGHUP it was expecting.

In addition since this removes the last user of proc_set_tty outside of
tty_io.c proc_set_tty is made static and removed from tty.h

misunderstanding, making the code a little more readable.

12 years agoFixes and cleanups for earlyprintk aka boot console
Gerd Hoffmann [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:26:49 +0000]
Fixes and cleanups for earlyprintk aka boot console

The console subsystem already has an idea of a boot console, using the
CON_BOOT flag.  The implementation has some flaws though.  The major
problem is that presence of a boot console makes register_console() ignore
any other console devices (unless explicitly specified on the kernel
command line).

This patch fixes the console selection code to *not* consider a boot
console a full-featured one, so the first non-boot console registering will
become the default console instead.  This way the unregister call for the
boot console in the register_console() function actually triggers and the
handover from the boot console to the real console device works smoothly.
Added a printk for the handover, so you know which console device the
output goes to when the boot console stops printing messages.

The disable_early_printk() call is obsolete with that patch, explicitly
disabling the early console isn't needed any more as it works automagically
with that patch.

I've walked through the tree, dropped all disable_early_printk() instances
found below arch/ and tagged the consoles with CON_BOOT if needed.  The
code is tested on x86, sh (thanks to Paul) and mips (thanks to Ralf).

Changes to last version: Rediffed against -rc3, adapted to mips cleanups by
Ralf, fixed "udbg-immortal" cmd line arg on powerpc.

Subject: jsm driver fix for linuxpps support

The jsm driver doesn't currently use the uart_handle_*_change helper
functions, which are the obvious place for things like linuxpps to tie
into (which it now does of course), and as a result the jsm driver can
not be used with linuxpps and anything else that ties into the
serial_core helper functions.  This patch adds calls to these helper
functions whenever the value they manage changes.  That actual storage
of the state is not modified since the jsm driver caches the current
settings (The 8250 driver reads them everytime a user asks for the
state), and only updates them whenever they change.

At least on x86_64 the present cyclades.h is broken due to the wrong size
of uclong.  This affects, of course, both the kernel and the user-level
utilities.  The symptom is that cyzload refuses to load the firmware.  I
also managed to freeze the machine when unloading the module.

The patch below fixes this in an architecture-independent way.  I have
