Alan Cox [Thu, 19 Jan 2006 01:44:13 +0000]
[PATCH] EDAC: core EDAC support code

This is a subset of the bluesmoke project core code, stripped of the NMI work
which isn't ready to merge and some of the "interesting" proc functionality
that needs reworking or just has no place in kernel.  It requires no core
kernel changes except the added scrub functions already posted.

The goal is to merge further functionality only after the core code is
accepted and proven in the base kernel, and only at the point the upstream
extras are really ready to merge.

From: doug thompson <norsk5@xmission.com>

  This converts EDAC to sysfs and is the final chunk neccessary before EDAC
  has a stable user space API and can be considered for submission into the
  base kernel.

Alan Cox [Thu, 19 Jan 2006 01:44:07 +0000]
[PATCH] EDAC: atomic scrub operations

EDAC requires a way to scrub memory if an ECC error is found and the chipset
does not do the work automatically.  That means rewriting memory locations
atomically with respect to all CPUs _and_ bus masters.  That means we can't
use atomic_add(foo, 0) as it gets optimised for non-SMP

This adds a function to include/asm-foo/atomic.h for the platforms currently
supported which implements a scrub of a mapped block.

It also adjusts a few other files include order where atomic.h is included
before types.h as this now causes an error as atomic_scrub uses u32.

13 years ago[PATCH] Add pselect/ppoll system call implementation
David Woodhouse [Thu, 19 Jan 2006 01:44:05 +0000]
[PATCH] Add pselect/ppoll system call implementation

The following implementation of ppoll() and pselect() system calls
depends on the architecture providing a TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK flag in the
thread_info.

These system calls have to change the signal mask during their
operation, and signal handlers must be invoked using the new, temporary
signal mask. The old signal mask must be restored either upon successful
exit from the system call, or upon returning from the invoked signal
handler if the system call is interrupted. We can't simply restore the
original signal mask and return to userspace, since the restored signal
mask may actually block the signal which interrupted the system call.

The TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK flag deals with this by causing the syscall exit
path to trap into do_signal() just as TIF_SIGPENDING does, and by
causing do_signal() to use the saved signal mask instead of the current
signal mask when setting up the stack frame for the signal handler -- or
by causing do_signal() to simply restore the saved signal mask in the
case where there is no handler to be invoked.

The first patch implements the sys_pselect() and sys_ppoll() system
calls, which are present only if TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK is defined. That
#ifdef should go away in time when all architectures have implemented
it. The second patch implements TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK for the PowerPC
kernel (in the -mm tree), and the third patch then removes the
arch-specific implementations of sys_rt_sigsuspend() and replaces them
with generic versions using the same trick.

The fourth and fifth patches, provided by David Howells, implement
TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK for FR-V and i386 respectively, and the sixth patch
adds the syscalls to the i386 syscall table.

This patch:

Add the pselect() and ppoll() system calls, providing core routines usable by
the original select() and poll() system calls and also the new calls (with
their semantics w.r.t timeouts).

David Howells [Thu, 19 Jan 2006 01:44:00 +0000]
[PATCH] Handle TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK for i386

Handle TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK as added by David Woodhouse's patch entitled:

        [PATCH] 2/3 Add TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK support for arch/powerpc
        [PATCH] 3/3 Generic sys_rt_sigsuspend

It does the following:

 (1) Declares TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK for i386.

 (2) Invokes it over to do_signal() when TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK is set.

 (3) Makes do_signal() support TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK, using the signal mask saved
     in current->saved_sigmask.

 (4) Discards sys_rt_sigsuspend() from the arch, using the generic one instead.

 (5) Makes sys_sigsuspend() save the signal mask and set TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK
     rather than attempting to fudge the return registers.

 (6) Makes sys_sigsuspend() return -ERESTARTNOHAND rather than looping
     intrinsically.

 (7) Makes setup_frame(), setup_rt_frame() and handle_signal() return 0 or
     -EFAULT rather than true/false to be consistent with the rest of the
     kernel.

Due to the fact do_signal() is then only called from one place:

 (8) Makes do_signal() no longer have a return value is it was just being
     ignored; force_sig() takes care of this.

 (9) Discards the old sigmask argument to do_signal() as it's no longer
     necessary.

(10) Makes do_signal() static.

(11) Marks the second argument to do_notify_resume() as unused. The unused
     argument should remain in the middle as the arguments are passed in as
     registers, and the ordering is specific in entry.S

Given the way do_signal() is now no longer called from sys_{,rt_}sigsuspend(),
they no longer need access to the exception frame, and so can just take
arguments normally.

This patch depends on sys_rt_sigsuspend patch.

[PATCH] vfs: *at functions: core

Here is a series of patches which introduce in total 13 new system calls
which take a file descriptor/filename pair instead of a single file
name.  These functions, openat etc, have been discussed on numerous
occasions.  They are needed to implement race-free filesystem traversal,
they are necessary to implement a virtual per-thread current working
directory (think multi-threaded backup software), etc.

We have in glibc today implementations of the interfaces which use the
/proc/self/fd magic.  But this code is rather expensive.  Here are some
results (similar to what Jim Meyering posted before).

The test creates a deep directory hierarchy on a tmpfs filesystem.  Then
rm -fr is used to remove all directories.  Without syscall support I get
this:

real    0m31.921s
user    0m0.688s
sys     0m31.234s

With syscall support the results are much better:

real    0m20.699s
user    0m0.536s
sys     0m20.149s

The interfaces are for obvious reasons currently not much used.  But they'll
be used.  coreutils (and Jeff's posixutils) are already using them.
Furthermore, code like ftw/fts in libc (maybe even glob) will also start using
them.  I expect a patch to make follow soon.  Every program which is walking
the filesystem tree will benefit.

13 years ago[PATCH] nfsd4: don't create on open that fails due to ERR_GRACE
J. Bruce Fields [Thu, 19 Jan 2006 01:43:36 +0000]
[PATCH] nfsd4: don't create on open that fails due to ERR_GRACE

In an earlier patch (commit b648330a1d741d5df8a5076b2a0a2519c69c8f41) I noted
that a too-early grace-period check was preventing us from bumping the
sequence id on open.  Unfortunately in that patch I stupidly moved the
grace-period check back too far, so now an open for create can succesfully
create the file while still returning ERR_GRACE.

The correct place for that check is after we've set the open_owner and handled
any replays, but before we actually start mucking with the filesystem.

Thanks to Avishay Traeger for reporting the bug.

[PATCH] uml: allow again to move backing file and to override saved location

When the user specifies both a COW file and its backing file, if the previous
backing file is not found, currently UML tries again to use it and fails.

This can be corrected by changing same_backing_files() return value in that
case, so that the caller will try to change the COW file to point to the new
location, as already done in other cases.

Additionally, given the change in the meaning of the func, change its name,
invert its return value, so all values are inverted except when
stat(from_cow,&buf2) fails.  And add some comments and two minor bugfixes -
remove a fd leak (return err rather than goto out) and a repeated check.

Tested well.

Paolo 'Blaisorblade' Giarrusso [Thu, 19 Jan 2006 01:42:57 +0000]
[PATCH] uml: sigio code - reduce spinlock hold time

In a previous patch I shifted an allocation to being atomic.

In this patch, a better but more intrusive solution is implemented, i.e.  hold
the lock only when really needing it, especially not over pipe operations, nor
over the culprit allocation.

Additionally, while at it, add a missing kfree in the failure path, and make
sure that if we fail in forking, write_sigio_pid is -1 and not, say, -ENOMEM.

And fix whitespace, at least for things I was touching anyway.

13 years ago[PATCH] uml: fix spinlock recursion and sleep-inside-spinlock in error path
Paolo 'Blaisorblade' Giarrusso [Thu, 19 Jan 2006 01:42:56 +0000]
[PATCH] uml: fix spinlock recursion and sleep-inside-spinlock in error path

In this error path, when the interface has had a problem, we call dev_close(),
which is disallowed for two reasons:

*) takes again the UML internal spinlock, inside the ->stop method of this
   device
*) can be called in process context only, while we're in interrupt context.

I've also thought that calling dev_close() may be a wrong policy to follow,
but it's not up to me to decide that.

However, we may end up with multiple dev_close() queued on the same device.
But the initial test for (dev->flags & IFF_UP) makes this harmless, though -
and dev_close() is supposed to care about races with itself.  So there's no
harm in delaying the shutdown, IMHO.

Something to mark the interface as "going to shutdown" would be appreciated,
but dev_deactivate has the same problems as dev_close(), so we can't use it
either.

13 years ago[PATCH] uml: implement soft interrupts
Jeff Dike [Thu, 19 Jan 2006 01:42:49 +0000]
[PATCH] uml: implement soft interrupts

This patch implements soft interrupts.  Interrupt enabling and disabling no
longer map to sigprocmask.  Rather, a flag is set indicating whether
interrupts may be handled.  If a signal comes in and interrupts are marked as
OK, then it is handled normally.  If interrupts are marked as off, then the
signal handler simply returns after noting that a signal needs handling.  When
interrupts are enabled later on, this pending signals flag is checked, and the
IRQ handlers are called at that point.

The point of this is to reduce the cost of local_irq_save et al, since they
are very much more common than the signals that they are enabling and
disabling.  Soft interrupts produce a speed-up of ~25% on a kernel build.

Subtleties -

    UML uses sigsetjmp/siglongjmp to switch contexts.  sigsetjmp has been
    wrapped in a save_flags-like macro which remembers the interrupt state at
    setjmp time, and restores it when it is longjmp-ed back to.

    The enable_signals function has to loop because the IRQ handler
    disables interrupts before returning.  enable_signals has to return with
    signals enabled, and signals may come in between the disabling and the
    return to enable_signals.  So, it loops for as long as there are pending
    signals, ensuring that signals are enabled when it finally returns, and
    that there are no pending signals that need to be dealt with.

13 years ago[PATCH] NUMA policies in the slab allocator V2
Christoph Lameter [Thu, 19 Jan 2006 01:42:36 +0000]
[PATCH] NUMA policies in the slab allocator V2

This patch fixes a regression in 2.6.14 against 2.6.13 that causes an
imbalance in memory allocation during bootup.

The slab allocator in 2.6.13 is not numa aware and simply calls
alloc_pages().  This means that memory policies may control the behavior of
alloc_pages().  During bootup the memory policy is set to MPOL_INTERLEAVE
resulting in the spreading out of allocations during bootup over all
available nodes.  The slab allocator in 2.6.13 has only a single list of
slab pages.  As a result the per cpu slab cache and the spinlock controlled
page lists may contain slab entries from off node memory.  The slab
allocator in 2.6.13 makes no effort to discern the locality of an entry on
its lists.

The NUMA aware slab allocator in 2.6.14 controls locality of the slab pages
explicitly by calling alloc_pages_node().  The NUMA slab allocator manages
slab entries by having lists of available slab pages for each node.  The
per cpu slab cache can only contain slab entries associated with the node
local to the processor.  This guarantees that the default allocation mode
of the slab allocator always assigns local memory if available.

Setting MPOL_INTERLEAVE as a default policy during bootup has no effect
anymore.  In 2.6.14 all node unspecific slab allocations are performed on
the boot processor.  This means that most of key data structures are
allocated on one node.  Most processors will have to refer to these
structures making the boot node a potential bottleneck.  This may reduce
performance and cause unnecessary memory pressure on the boot node.

This patch implements NUMA policies in the slab layer.  There is the need
of explicit application of NUMA memory policies by the slab allcator itself
since the NUMA slab allocator does no longer let the page_allocator control
locality.

The check for policies is made directly at the beginning of __cache_alloc
using current->mempolicy.  The memory policy is already frequently checked
by the page allocator (alloc_page_vma() and alloc_page_current()).  So it
is highly likely that the cacheline is present.  For MPOL_INTERLEAVE
kmalloc() will spread out each request to one node after another so that an
equal distribution of allocations can be obtained during bootup.

It is not possible to push the policy check to lower layers of the NUMA
slab allocator since the per cpu caches are now only containing slab
entries from the current node.  If the policy says that the local node is
not to be preferred or forbidden then there is no point in checking the
slab cache or local list of slab pages.  The allocation better be directed
immediately to the lists containing slab entries for the allowed set of
nodes.

This way of applying policy also fixes another strange behavior in 2.6.13.
alloc_pages() is controlled by the memory allocation policy of the current
process.  It could therefore be that one process is running with
MPOL_INTERLEAVE and would f.e.  obtain a new page following that policy
since no slab entries are in the lists anymore.  A page can typically be
used for multiple slab entries but lets say that the current process is
only using one.  The other entries are then added to the slab lists.  These
are now non local entries in the slab lists despite of the possible
availability of local pages that would provide faster access and increase
the performance of the application.

Another process without MPOL_INTERLEAVE may now run and expect a local slab
entry from kmalloc().  However, there are still these free slab entries
from the off node page obtained from the other process via MPOL_INTERLEAVE
in the cache.  The process will then get an off node slab entry although
other slab entries may be available that are local to that process.  This
means that the policy if one process may contaminate the locality of the
slab caches for other processes.

This patch in effect insures that a per process policy is followed for the
allocation of slab entries and that there cannot be a memory policy
influence from one process to another.  A process with default policy will
always get a local slab entry if one is available.  And the process using
memory policies will get its memory arranged as requested.  Off-node slab
allocation will require the use of spinlocks and will make the use of per
cpu caches not possible.  A process using memory policies to redirect
allocations offnode will have to cope with additional lock overhead in
addition to the latency added by the need to access a remote slab entry.

Changes V1->V2
- Remove #ifdef CONFIG_NUMA by moving forward declaration into
  prior #ifdef CONFIG_NUMA section.

- Give the function determining the node number to use a saner
  name.

Christoph Lameter [Thu, 19 Jan 2006 01:42:31 +0000]
[PATCH] Zone reclaim: Reclaim logic

Some bits for zone reclaim exists in 2.6.15 but they are not usable.  This
patch fixes them up, removes unused code and makes zone reclaim usable.

Zone reclaim allows the reclaiming of pages from a zone if the number of
free pages falls below the watermarks even if other zones still have enough
pages available.  Zone reclaim is of particular importance for NUMA
machines.  It can be more beneficial to reclaim a page than taking the
performance penalties that come with allocating a page on a remote zone.

Zone reclaim is enabled if the maximum distance to another node is higher
than RECLAIM_DISTANCE, which may be defined by an arch.  By default
RECLAIM_DISTANCE is 20.  20 is the distance to another node in the same
component (enclosure or motherboard) on IA64.  The meaning of the NUMA

Christoph Lameter [Thu, 19 Jan 2006 01:42:30 +0000]
[PATCH] Zone reclaim: resurrect may_swap

Zone reclaim has a huge impact on NUMA performance (f.e.  our maximum
throughput with XFS is raised from 4GB to 6GB/sec / page cache contamination
of numa nodes destroys locality if one just does a large copy operation which
results in performance dropping for good until reboot).

Nick Piggin [Thu, 19 Jan 2006 01:42:27 +0000]
[PATCH] mm: migration page refcounting fix

Migration code currently does not take a reference to target page
properly, so between unlocking the pte and trying to take a new
reference to the page with isolate_lru_page, anything could happen to
it.

Fix this by holding the pte lock until we get a chance to elevate the
refcount.

[PATCH] mm: dirty_exceeded speedup

Ravikiran reports that this variable is bouncing all around nodes on NUMA
machines, causing measurable performance problems.  Fix that up by only
writing to it when it actually changed.

And put it in a new cacheline to prevent it sharing with other things (this

[PATCH] Prevent trident driver from grabbing pcnet32 hardware

Some pcnet32 hardware erroneously has the Vendor ID for Trident.  The
pcnet32 driver looks for the PCI ethernet class before grabbing the
hardware, but the current trident driver does not check against the PCI
audio class.  This allows the trident driver to claim the pcnet32 hardware.
 This patch prevents that.

This revised version of the OSS Trident patch includes PCI_DEVICE Macro
usage.
