11 years agoptrace: compat_ptrace_request siginfo
Roland McGrath [Sun, 20 Apr 2008 20:10:12 +0000]
ptrace: compat_ptrace_request siginfo

This adds support for PTRACE_GETSIGINFO and PTRACE_SETSIGINFO in
compat_ptrace_request.  It relies on existing arch definitions for
copy_siginfo_to_user32 and copy_siginfo_from_user32.

On powerpc, this fixes a longstanding regression of 32-bit ptrace
calls on 64-bit kernels vs native calls (64-bit calls or 32-bit
kernels).  This can be seen in a 32-bit call using PTRACE_GETSIGINFO
to examine e.g. siginfo_t.si_addr from a signal that sets it.
(This was broken as of 2.6.24 and, I presume, many or all prior versions.)

Linus Torvalds [Mon, 21 Apr 2008 04:59:13 +0000]
Fix RCU list iterator use of 'rcu_dereference()'

The RCU iterators used 'rcu_dereference()' on an already-fetched RCU
pointer value, which defeats the whole point of the exercise.

When we dereference a pointer protected by RCU, we need to make sure
that we only fetch the value _once_, because if the compiler ends up
re-loading it due to register pressure, the newly reloaded value could
be different from the previously fetched one, and you get inconsistent
results.

Cleaned-up, fixed, and the pointless list_for_each_safe_rcu #define
deleted by Paul Kenney.

hrtimer: optimize the softirq time optimization

The previous optimization did not take the case into account where a
clock provides its own softirq_get_time() function.

Check for the availablitiy of the clock get time function first and
then check if we need to retrieve the time for both clocks via
hrtimer_softirq_gettime() to avoid a double evaluation of time in that
case as well.

Dimitri Sivanich [Fri, 18 Apr 2008 20:39:00 +0000]
hrtimer: reduce calls to hrtimer_get_softirq_time()

It seems that hrtimer_run_queues() is calling hrtimer_get_softirq_time() more
often than it needs to.  This can cause frequent contention on systems with
large numbers of processors/cores.

With this patch, hrtimer_run_queues only calls hrtimer_get_softirq_time() if
there is a pending timer in one of the hrtimer bases, and only once.

This also combines hrtimer_run_queues() and the inline run_hrtimer_queue()
into one function.

[POWERPC] Fix compile breakage for 64-bit UP configs

The rearrangements in 945feb174b14e7098cc7ecf0cf4768d35bc52f9c
("[POWERPC] irqtrace support for 64-bit powerpc") caused 64-bit
non-SMP configs to fail to compile with a message about
local_irq_save being undefined in include/linux/proportions.h.

sysfs: refill attribute buffer when reading from offset 0

Requiring userspace to close and re-open sysfs attributes has been the
policy since before 2.6.12.  It allows userspace to get a consistent
snapshot of kernel state and consume it with incremental reads and seeks.

Now, if the file position is zero the kernel assumes userspace wants to see
the new value.  The application for this change is to allow a userspace
RAID metadata handler to check the state of an array without causing any
memory allocations.  Thus not causing writeback to a raid array that might
be blocked waiting for userspace to take action.

PM: Remove destroy_suspended_device()

After 2.6.24 there was a plan to make the PM core acquire all device
semaphores during a suspend/hibernation to protect itself from
concurrent operations involving device objects.  That proved to be
too heavy-handed and we found a better way to achieve the goal, but
before it happened, we had introduced the functions
device_pm_schedule_removal() and destroy_suspended_device() to allow
drivers to "safely" destroy a suspended device and we had adapted some
drivers to use them.  Now that these functions are no longer necessary,
it seems reasonable to remove them and modify their users to use the
normal device unregistration instead.

What is iSCSI Boot Firmware Table?  It is a mechanism for the iSCSI tools to
extract from the machine NICs the iSCSI connection information so that they

PM: Handle device registrations during suspend/resume

Modify the PM core to protect its data structures, specifically the
dpm_active list, from being corrupted if a child of the currently
suspending device is registered concurrently with its ->suspend()
callback.  In that case, since the new device (the child) is added
to dpm_active after its parent, the PM core will attempt to
suspend it after the parent, which is wrong.

Introduce a new member of struct dev_pm_info, called 'sleeping',
and use it to check if the parent of the device being added to
dpm_active has been suspended, in which case the device registration
fails.  Also, use 'sleeping' for checking if the ordering of devices
on dpm_active is correct.

Introduce variable 'all_sleeping' that will be set to 'true' once all
devices have been suspended and make new device registrations fail
until 'all_sleeping' is reset to 'false', in order to avoid having
unsuspended devices around while the system is going into a sleep state.

Remove pm_sleep_rwsem which is not necessary any more.

11 years agodriver core: Convert debug functions declared inline __attribute__((format (printf...
Joe Perches [Wed, 27 Feb 2008 03:08:42 +0000]
driver core: Convert debug functions declared inline __attribute__((format (printf,x,y) to statement expression macros

When DEBUG is not defined, pr_debug and dev_dbg and some
other local debugging functions are specified as:

"inline __attribute__((format (printf, x, y)))"

This is done to validate printk arguments when not debugging.

Converting these functions to macros or statement expressions
"do { if (0) printk(fmt, ##arg); } while (0)"
or
"({ if (0) printk(fmt, ##arg); 0; })
makes at least gcc 4.2.2 produce smaller objects.

This has the additional benefit of allowing the optimizer to
avoid calling functions like print_mac that might have been
arguments to the printk.

defconfig x86 current:

$ size vmlinux
   text    data     bss     dec     hex filename

   text    data     bss     dec     hex filename
4716642  474560  618496 5809698  58a622 vmlinux

Even kernel/sched.o, which doesn't even use these
functions, becomes smaller.

It appears that merely having an indirect include
of <linux/device.h> can cause bigger objects.

$ size sched.inline.o sched.if0.o
   text    data     bss     dec     hex filename

  31366    2854     328   34548    86f4 sched.if0.o

The current preprocessed only kernel/sched.i file contains:

# 612 "include/linux/device.h"
static inline __attribute__((always_inline)) int __attribute__ ((format (printf, 2, 3)))

register_memory()/unregister_memory() never gets called with

Another bug fix - before calling unregister_memory()

Ben Nizette [Thu, 13 Mar 2008 11:27:30 +0000]
UIO: Implement a UIO interface for the SMX Cryptengine

This patch implements a UIO interface for the SMX Cryptengine.

The Cryptengine found on the Nias Digital SMX board is best suited
for a UIO interface.  It is not wired in to the cryptographic API
as the engine handles it's own keys, algorithms, everything.  All
that we know about is that if there's room in the buffer, you can
write data to it and when there's data ready, you read it out again.

There isn't necessarily even any direct correlation between data
going in and data coming out again, the engine may consume or
generate data all on its own.

This driver is for proprietary hardware but we're always told to
submit the drivers anyway; here you are.  :-)

This is version 4 of this patch and addresses all issues raised by
Hans-Jürgen Koch and Paul Mundt in their reviews.  Slightly altered
is Paul's suggestion to use DRV_NAME and DRV_VERSION as the UIO
version and name.  While at the moment they are the same, there
is no reason for them to stay that way.  Nevertheless we now at
least provide a MODULE_VERSION macro to keep modinfo happy.

"[TCP]: Fix size calculation in sk_stream_alloc_pskb", has triggered a
bug in the 5701 where the 5701 DMA engine will corrupt outgoing
packets.  This problem only happens when the starting address of the
packet matches a certain range of offsets and only when the 5701 is
placed downstream of a particular Intel bridge.

This patch detects the problematic bridge and if present, readjusts the
starting address of the packet data to a dword aligned boundary.

This patch is a take two of adding full functionality to PLL1 on
AT32AP7000.  This allows board-specific code and drivers to configure
and enable PLL1. This is useful when precise control over the

avr32: Generic clockevents support

This combines three patches from David Brownell:
  * avr32: tclib support
  * avr32: simplify clocksources
  * avr32: Turn count/compare into a oneshot clockevent device

Register both TC blocks (instead of just the first one) so that
the AT32/AT91 tclib code will pick them up (instead of just the
avr32-only PIT-style clocksource).

Rename the first one and its resources appropriately.

More cleanups to the cycle counter clocksource code

 - Disable all the weak symbol magic; remove the AVR32-only TCB-based
   clocksource code (source and header).

 - Mark the __init code properly.

 - Don't forget to report IRQF_TIMER.

 - Make the system work properly with this clocksource, by preventing
   use of the CPU "idle" sleep state in the idle loop when it's used.

Package the avr32 count/compare timekeeping support as a oneshot
clockevent device, so it supports NO_HZ and high res timers.
This means it also supports plugging in other clockevent devices
and clocksources.

sched: fair: weight calculations

In order to level the hierarchy, we need to calculate load based on the
root view. That is, each task's load is in the same unit.

             A
            / \
           B   1
          / \
         2   3

To compute 1's load we do:

   weight(1)
--------------
 rq_weight(A)

To compute 2's load we do:

  weight(2)      weight(B)
------------ * -----------
rq_weight(B)   rw_weight(A)

This yields load fractions in comparable units.

The consequence is that it changes virtual time. We used to have:

                time_{i}
  vtime_{i} = ------------
               weight_{i}

  vtime = \Sum vtime_{i} = time / rq_weight.

But with the new way of load calculation we get that vtime equals time.

Implement SMP nice support for the full group hierarchy.

On each load-balance action, compile a sched_domain wide view of the full
task_group tree. We compute the domain wide view when walking down the
hierarchy, and readjust the weights when walking back up.

After collecting and readjusting the domain wide view, we try to balance the
tasks within the task_groups. The current approach is a naively balance each
task group until we've moved the targeted amount of load.

Inspired by Srivatsa Vaddsgiri's previous code and Abhishek Chandra's H-SMP
paper.

XXX: there will be some numerical issues due to the limited nature of
     SCHED_LOAD_SCALE wrt to representing a task_groups influence on the
     total weight. When the tree is deep enough, or the task weight small
