Mike Christie [Wed, 13 May 2009 22:57:44 +0000]
[SCSI] libiscsi_tcp: update recv tracking for each skb instead of iscsi pdu

Everytime we read in a pdu libiscsi will update a tracking field.
It uses this to decide when to check if the transport might be bad.
If we have not got data in recv_timeout seconds then we will
send a iscsi ping/nop.

If we are on a slow link then it could take a while to read in all
the data for a data_in. In that case we might send a ping/nop when
we do not need to or we might drop a session thinking it is bad
when the lower layer is making forward progress on it.

This patch has libiscsi_tcp update the recv tracking for each skb
(basically network packet from our point of view) instead of the
entire iscsi pdu+data, so we account for these cases where data is
coming in slowly.

If we are responding to a nop from the target by sending our nop,

When we create the tcp/ip connection by calling ep_connect, we currently
just go by the routing table info.

I think there are two problems with this.

1. Some drivers do not have access to a routing table. Some drivers like
qla4xxx do not even know about other ports.

2. If you have two initiator ports on the same subnet, the user may have
set things up so that session1 was supposed to be run through port1. and
session2 was supposed to be run through port2. It looks like we could
end with both sessions going through one of the ports.

[SCSI] ipr: fix PCI permanent error handler

The ipr driver can hang if it encounters enough PCI errors
to trigger the permanent error handler. The driver will attempt
to initiate a "bringdown" of the adapter and fail all pending
ops back. However, this bringdown is unlike any other bringdown
of the adapter in the code as the driver. In this code path we
end up failing back ops with allow_cmds still set to 1. This results
in some commands, the HCAM commands in particular, getting immediately
re-issued to the adapter on the done call, which results in
an infinite loop in ipr_fail_all_ops. Fix this by setting allow_cmds
to zero in this path.

11 years ago[SCSI] qla2xxx: Conditionally disable automatic queue full tracking.
Michael Reed [Tue, 7 Apr 2009 05:33:47 +0000]
[SCSI] qla2xxx: Conditionally disable automatic queue full tracking.

Changing a lun's queue depth (/sys/block/sdX/device/queue_depth)
isn't sticky when the device is connected via a QLogic fibre
channel adapter.

The QLogic qla2xxx fibre channel driver dynamically adjusts a
lun's queue depth.  If a user has a specific need to limit the
number of commands issued to a lun (say a tape drive, or a shared
raid where the total commands issued to all luns is limited at
the controller level, for example) and writes a limiting value to
/sys/block/sdXX/device/queue_depth, the qla2xxx driver will
silently and gradually increase the queue depth back to the
driver limit of ql2xmaxqdepth.  While reducing this value (module
parameter) or increasing the interval between ramp ups
(ql2xqfullrampup) offers the potential for a work around it would
be better to have the option of just disabling the dynamic
adjustment of queue depth.

This patch implements an "off switch" as a module parameter.

Avoid ICE in get_random_int() with gcc-3.4.5

Martin Knoblauch reports that trying to build 2.6.30-rc6-git3 with
RHEL4.3 userspace (gcc (GCC) 3.4.5 20051201 (Red Hat 3.4.5-2)) causes an
internal compiler error (ICE):

    drivers/char/random.c: In function `get_random_int':
    drivers/char/random.c:1672: error: unrecognizable insn:

    drivers/char/random.c:1672: internal compiler error: in extract_insn, at recog.c:2083

and after some debugging it turns out that it's due to the code trying
to figure out the rough value of the current stack pointer by taking an
address of an uninitialized variable and casting that to an integer.

This is clearly a compiler bug, but it's not worth fighting - while the
current stack kernel pointer might be somewhat hard to predict in user
space, it's also not generally going to change for a lot of the call
chains for a particular process.

So just drop it, and mumble some incoherent curses at the compiler.

11 years agonfs: Fix NFS v4 client handling of MAY_EXEC in nfs_permission.
Frank Filz [Mon, 18 May 2009 21:41:40 +0000]
nfs: Fix NFS v4 client handling of MAY_EXEC in nfs_permission.

The problem is that permission checking is skipped if atomic open is
possible, but when exec opens a file, it just opens it O_READONLY which
means EXEC permission will not be checked at that time.

This problem is observed by the following sequence (executed as root):

  mount -t nfs4 server:/ /mnt4
  echo "ls" >/mnt4/foo

Fix oops on close of hot-unplugged FTDI serial converter

Commit c45d6320 ("fix reference counting of ftdi_private") stopped
ftdi_sio_port_remove() from directly freeing the port-private data, with
the intention if the port was still open, it would be freed when
ftdi_close() is eventually called and releases the last refcount on the
structure.

That's all very well, but ftdi_sio_port_remove() still contains a call
to usb_set_serial_port_data(port, NULL) -- so by the time we get to
ftdi_close() for the port which was unplugged, it _still_ oopses on
dereferencing that NULL pointer, as it did before (and does in 2.6.29).

The fix is just not to clear the private data in ftdi_sio_port_remove().
Then the refcount is properly reduced to zero when the final kref_put()
happens in ftdi_close().

Remove a bogus comment too, while we're at it. And stop doing things
inside "if (priv)" -- it must _always_ be there.

Based loosely on an earlier patch by Daniel Mack, and suggestions by
Alan Stern.

After upgrading my distcc boxes from gcc 4.2.2 to 4.4.0, the function
graph tracer broke. This was discovered on my x86 boxes.

The issue is that gcc used the same register for an output as it did for
an input in an asm statement. I first thought this was a bug in gcc and
reported it. I was notified that gcc was correct and that the output had
to be flagged as an "early clobber".

format and the assertion is bogus and will always trigger with a bug looking

Linus Torvalds [Sat, 16 May 2009 20:41:28 +0000]
Fix caller information for warn_slowpath_null

Ian Campbell noticed that since "Eliminate thousands of warnings with
gcc 3.2 build" (commit 57adc4d2dbf968fdbe516359688094eef4d46581) all
WARN_ON()'s currently appear to come from warn_slowpath_null(), eg:

  WARNING: at kernel/softirq.c:143 warn_slowpath_null+0x1c/0x20()

because now that warn_slowpath_null() is in the call path, the
__builtin_return_address(0) returns that, rather than the place that
caused the warning.

Fix this by splitting up the warn_slowpath_null/fmt cases differently,
using a common helper function, and getting the return address in the
right place.  This also happens to avoid the unnecessary stack usage for
the non-stdargs case, and just generally cleans things up.

Make the function name printout use %pS while at it.

Processor idle power states C2 and C3 stop the TSC on many machines.
Linux recognizes this situation and marks the TSC as unstable:

Marking TSC unstable due to TSC halts in idle

But if those same machines are booted with "processor.max_cstate=1",

libata: Media rotation rate and form factor heuristics

This patch provides new heuristics for parsing both the form factor and
media rotation rate ATA IDENFITY words.

The reported ATA version must be 7 or greater and the device must return
values defined as valid in the standard.  Only then are the
characteristics reported to SCSI via the VPD B1 page.

This seems like a reasonable compromise to me considering that we have
been shipping several kernel releases that key off the rotation rate bit
without any version checking whatsoever.  With no complaints so far.

11 years agox86: Fix performance regression caused by paravirt_ops on native kernels
Jeremy Fitzhardinge [Thu, 14 May 2009 00:16:55 +0000]
x86: Fix performance regression caused by paravirt_ops on native kernels

Xiaohui Xin and some other folks at Intel have been looking into what's
behind the performance hit of paravirt_ops when running native.

It appears that the hit is entirely due to the paravirtualized
spinlocks introduced by:

 | commit 8efcbab674de2bee45a2e4cdf97de16b8e609ac8
 | Date:   Mon Jul 7 12:07:51 2008 -0700
 |
 |     paravirt: introduce a "lock-byte" spinlock implementation

The extra call/return in the spinlock path is somehow
causing an increase in the cycles/instruction of somewhere around 2-7%
(seems to vary quite a lot from test to test).  The working theory is
that the CPU's pipeline is getting upset about the
call->call->locked-op->return->return, and seems to be failing to
speculate (though I haven't seen anything definitive about the precise
reasons).  This doesn't entirely make sense, because the performance
hit is also visible on unlock and other operations which don't involve
locked instructions.  But spinlock operations clearly swamp all the
other pvops operations, even though I can't imagine that they're
nearly as common (there's only a .05% increase in instructions
executed).

If I disable just the pv-spinlock calls, my tests show that pvops is
identical to non-pvops performance on native (my measurements show that
it is actually about .1% faster, but Xiaohui shows a .05% slowdown).

Summary of results, averaging 10 runs of the "mmperf" test, using a
no-pvops build as baseline:

nopv Pv-nospin Pv-spin
CPU cycles 100.00% 99.89% 102.18%
instructions 100.00% 100.10% 100.15%
CPI 100.00% 99.79% 102.03%
cache ref 100.00% 100.84% 100.28%
cache miss 100.00% 90.47% 88.56%
cache miss rate 100.00% 89.72% 88.31%
branches 100.00% 99.93% 100.04%
branch miss 100.00% 103.66% 107.72%
branch miss rt 100.00% 103.73% 107.67%
wallclock 100.00% 99.90% 102.20%

The clear effect here is that the 2% increase in CPI is
directly reflected in the final wallclock time.

(The other interesting effect is that the more ops are
out of line calls via pvops, the lower the cache access
and miss rates.  Not too surprising, but it suggests that
the non-pvops kernel is over-inlined.  On the flipside,
the branch misses go up correspondingly...)

So, what's the fix?

Paravirt patching turns all the pvops calls into direct calls, so
_spin_lock etc do end up having direct calls.  For example, the compiler
generated code for paravirtualized _spin_lock is:

<_spin_lock+0>: mov    %gs:0xb4c8,%rax
<_spin_lock+9>: incl   0xffffffffffffe044(%rax)
<_spin_lock+15>: callq  *0xffffffff805a5b30
<_spin_lock+22>: retq

The indirect call will get patched to:
<_spin_lock+0>: mov    %gs:0xb4c8,%rax
<_spin_lock+9>: incl   0xffffffffffffe044(%rax)
<_spin_lock+15>: callq <__ticket_spin_lock>
<_spin_lock+20>: nop; nop /* or whatever 2-byte nop */
<_spin_lock+22>: retq

One possibility is to inline _spin_lock, etc, when building an
optimised kernel (ie, when there's no spinlock/preempt
instrumentation/debugging enabled).  That will remove the outer
call/return pair, returning the instruction stream to a single
call/return, which will presumably execute the same as the non-pvops
case.  The downsides arel 1) it will replicate the
preempt_disable/enable code at eack lock/unlock callsite; this code is
fairly small, but not nothing; and 2) the spinlock definitions are
already a very heavily tangled mass of #ifdefs and other preprocessor
magic, and making any changes will be non-trivial.

The other obvious answer is to disable pv-spinlocks.  Making them a
separate config option is fairly easy, and it would be trivial to
enable them only when Xen is enabled (as the only non-default user).
But it doesn't really address the common case of a distro build which
is going to have Xen support enabled, and leaves the open question of
whether the native performance cost of pv-spinlocks is worth the
performance improvement on a loaded Xen system (10% saving of overall
system CPU when guests block rather than spin).  Still it is a
reasonable short-term workaround.
