vmcoreinfo: rename vmcoreinfo's macros returning the size

This patchset is for the vmcoreinfo data.

The vmcoreinfo data has the minimum debugging information only for dump
filtering.  makedumpfile (dump filtering command) gets it to distinguish
unnecessary pages, and makedumpfile creates a small dumpfile.

This patch:

VMCOREINFO_SIZE() should be renamed VMCOREINFO_STRUCT_SIZE() since it's always
returning the size of the struct with a given name. This change would allow
VMCOREINFO_TYPEDEF_SIZE() to simply become VMCOREINFO_SIZE() since it need not
be used exclusively for typedefs.

Introduce flags for reserve_bootmem()

This patchset adds a flags variable to reserve_bootmem() and uses the
BOOTMEM_EXCLUSIVE flag in crashkernel reservation code to detect collisions
between crashkernel area and already used memory.

This patch:

Change the reserve_bootmem() function to accept a new flag BOOTMEM_EXCLUSIVE.
If that flag is set, the function returns with -EBUSY if the memory already
has been reserved in the past.  This is to avoid conflicts.

Because that code runs before SMP initialisation, there's no race condition
inside reserve_bootmem_core().

Some adjustments to code are made to reflect the architecture of the
interface, which is a centrally controlled multiport (or, as referred to
from DEC documentation, a serial line multiplexer, going up to 8 lines
originally) rather than a bundle of separate ports.

Types are changed, where applicable, to specify the width of hardware
registers explicitly.  The interrupt handler is now managed in the
->startup() and ->shutdown() calls for consistency with other drivers and

dz: always check if it is safe to console_putchar()

Polled transmission is tricky enough with the DZ11 design.  While "loop" is
set to a high value, conceptually you are not allowed to transmit without
checking whether the device offers the right transmission line (yes, it is the
device that selects the line -- the driver has no control over it other than
disabling the transmitter offered if it is the wrong one), so the loop has to
be run at least once.

Well, the '1977 or PDP11 view of how serial lines should be handled...  Except
that the serial interface used to be quite an impressive board back then

11 years agodrivers/edac: pci: broken parity regression
Bryan Boatright [Thu, 7 Feb 2008 08:14:58 +0000]
drivers/edac: pci: broken parity regression

Using the EDAC code in kernel.org kernel version 2.6.23.8 I am seeing the
following problem:

    In the kernel there is a pci device attribute located in sysfs that is
    checked by the EDAC PCI scanning code. If that attribute is set,
    PCI parity/error scannining is skipped for that device. The attribute
    is:

            broken_parity_status

    as is located in /sys/devices/pci<XXX>/0000:XX:YY.Z directorys for
    PCI devices.

I don't think this check was actually implemented.  I have a misbehaved card
that reports a parity error every 1000 ms:

Nov 25 07:28:43 beta kernel: EDAC PCI: Master Data Parity Error on 0000:05:01.0
Nov 25 07:28:44 beta kernel: EDAC PCI: Master Data Parity Error on 0000:05:01.0
Nov 25 07:28:45 beta kernel: EDAC PCI: Master Data Parity Error on 0000:05:01.0

Setting that card's broken_parity_status bit did not mask the error:

echo "1" > /sys/bus/pci/devices/0000:05:01.0/broken_parity_status

I looked through the EDAC code and did not readily see any reference to
broken_parity_status at all (which makes sense based on the behavior I am
seeing).  I applied the following patch as a proof-of-concept and now EDAC's
PCI parity error reporting behaves as documented:

bryan

Good regression find, bryan. It used to work. sigh.
I added more logic to your patch, for more coverage of the error.

11 years agohotplug cpu: move tasks in empty cpusets to parent various other fixes
Paul Jackson [Thu, 7 Feb 2008 08:14:46 +0000]
hotplug cpu: move tasks in empty cpusets to parent various other fixes

Various minor formatting and comment tweaks to Cliff Wickman's
[PATCH_3_of_3]_cpusets__update_cpumask_revision.patch

I had had "iff", meaning "if and only if" in a comment.  However, except for
ancient mathematicians, the abbreviation "iff" was a tad too cryptic.  Cliff
changed it to "if", presumably figuring that the "iff" was a typo.  However,
it was the "only if" half of the conjunction that was most interesting.
Reword to emphasis the "only if" aspect.

The locking comment for remove_tasks_in_empty_cpuset() was wrong; it said
callback_mutex had to be held on entry.  The opposite is true.

Several mentions of attach_task() in comments needed to be
changed to cgroup_attach_task().

A comment about notify_on_release was no longer relevant,
as the line of code it had commented, namely:
set_bit(CS_RELEASED_RESOURCE, &parent->flags);
is no longer present in that place in the cpuset.c code.

Similarly a comment about notify_on_release before the
scan_for_empty_cpusets() routine was no longer relevant.

Removed extra parentheses and unnecessary return statement.

Renamed attach_task() to cpuset_attach() in various comments.

Removed comment about not needing memory migration, as it seems the migration
is done anyway, via the cpuset_attach() callback from cgroup_attach_task().

11 years agohotplug cpu: move tasks in empty cpusets to parent
Cliff Wickman [Thu, 7 Feb 2008 08:14:43 +0000]
hotplug cpu: move tasks in empty cpusets to parent

This patch corrects a situation that occurs when one disables all the cpus in
a cpuset.

Currently, the disabled (cpu-less) cpuset inherits the cpus of its parent,
which is incorrect because it may then overlap its cpu-exclusive sibling.

Tasks of an empty cpuset should be moved to the cpuset which is the parent of
their current cpuset.  Or if the parent cpuset has no cpus, to its parent,
etc.

And the empty cpuset should be released (if it is flagged notify_on_release).

Depends on the cgroup_scan_tasks() function (proposed by David Rientjes) to
iterate through all tasks in the cpu-less cpuset.  We are deliberately
avoiding a walk of the tasklist.

KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Thu, 7 Feb 2008 08:14:37 +0000]
per-zone and reclaim enhancements for memory controller: modifies vmscan.c for isolate globa/cgroup lru activity

When using memory controller, there are 2 levels of memory reclaim.
 1. zone memory reclaim because of system/zone memory shortage.
 2. memory cgroup memory reclaim because of hitting limit.

These two can be distinguished by sc->mem_cgroup parameter.
(scan_global_lru() macro)

This patch tries to make memory cgroup reclaim routine avoid affecting
system/zone memory reclaim. This patch inserts if (scan_global_lru()) and
hook to memory_cgroup reclaim support functions.

This patch can be a help for isolating system lru activity and group lru
activity and shows what additional functions are necessary.

 * mem_cgroup_calc_mapped_ratio() ... calculate mapped ratio for cgroup.
 * mem_cgroup_reclaim_imbalance() ... calculate active/inactive balance in
                                        cgroup.
 * mem_cgroup_calc_reclaim_active() ... calculate the number of active pages to
                                be scanned in this priority in mem_cgroup.

 * mem_cgroup_calc_reclaim_inactive() ... calculate the number of inactive pages
                                to be scanned in this priority in mem_cgroup.

 * mem_cgroup_all_unreclaimable() .. checks cgroup's page is all unreclaimable
                                     or not.
 * mem_cgroup_get_reclaim_priority() ...
 * mem_cgroup_note_reclaim_priority() ... record reclaim priority (temporal)
 * mem_cgroup_remember_reclaim_priority()
                             .... record reclaim priority as
                                  zone->prev_priority.
                                  This value is used for calc reclaim_mapped.

KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Thu, 7 Feb 2008 08:14:31 +0000]
per-zone and reclaim enhancements for memory controller: per-zone active inactive counter

This patch adds per-zone status in memory cgroup.  These values are often read
(as per-zone value) by page reclaiming.

In current design, per-zone stat is just a unsigned long value and not an
atomic value because they are modified only under lru_lock.  (So, atomic_ops
is not necessary.)

This patch adds ACTIVE and INACTIVE per-zone status values.

For handling per-zone status, this patch adds
  struct mem_cgroup_per_zone {
...
  }
and some helper functions. This will be useful to add per-zone objects
in mem_cgroup.

This patch turns memory controller's early_init to be 0 for calling
kmalloc() in initialization.

Add a handler "pre_destroy" to cgroup_subsys.  It is called before
cgroup_rmdir() checks all subsys's refcnt.

I think this is useful for subsys which have some extra refs even if there
are no tasks in cgroup.  By adding pre_destroy(), the kernel keeps the rule
"destroy() against subsystem is called only when refcnt=0." and allows css
ref to be used by other objects than tasks.

11 years agomemcgroup: fix hang with shmem/tmpfs
Hugh Dickins [Thu, 7 Feb 2008 08:14:22 +0000]
memcgroup: fix hang with shmem/tmpfs

The memcgroup regime relies upon a cgroup reclaiming pages from itself within
add_to_page_cache: which may involve some waiting.  Whereas shmem and tmpfs
rely upon using add_to_page_cache while holding a spinlock: when it cannot
wait.  The consequence is that when a cgroup reaches its limit, shmem_getpage
just hangs - unless there is outside memory pressure too, neither kswapd nor
radix_tree_preload get it out of the retry loop.

In most cases we can mem_cgroup_cache_charge the page waitably first, to
attach the page_cgroup in advance, so add_to_page_cache will do no more than
increment a count; then mem_cgroup_uncharge_page after (in both success and
failure cases) to balance the books again.

And where there used to be a congestion_wait for kswapd (recently made
redundant by radix_tree_preload), use mem_cgroup_cache_charge with NULL page
to go through a cycle of allocation and freeing, without accounting to any
particular page, and without updating the statistics vector.  This brings the
cgroup below its limit so the next try usually succeeds.

11 years agomemcgroup: revert swap_state mods
Hugh Dickins [Thu, 7 Feb 2008 08:14:13 +0000]
memcgroup: revert swap_state mods

If we're charging rss and we're charging cache, it seems obvious that we
should be charging swapcache - as has been done.  But in practice that
doesn't work out so well: both swapin readahead and swapoff leave the
majority of pages charged to the wrong cgroup (the cgroup that happened to
read them in, rather than the cgroup to which they belong).

(Which is why unuse_pte's GFP_KERNEL while holding pte lock never showed up
as a problem: no allocation was ever done there, every page read being
already charged to the cgroup which initiated the swapoff.)

It all works rather better if we leave the charging to do_swap_page and
unuse_pte, and do nothing for swapcache itself: revert mm/swap_state.c to
what it was before the memory-controller patches.  This also speeds up
significantly a contained process working at its limit: because it no
longer needs to keep waiting for swap writeback to complete.

Is it unfair that swap pages become uncharged once they're unmapped, even
though they're still clearly private to particular cgroups?  For a short
while, yes; but PageReclaim arranges for those pages to go to the end of
the inactive list and be reclaimed soon if necessary.

shmem/tmpfs pages are a distinct case: their charging also benefits from
this change, but their second life on the lists as swapcache pages may
prove more unfair - that I need to check next.

11 years agomemcgroup: fix zone isolation OOM
Hugh Dickins [Thu, 7 Feb 2008 08:14:12 +0000]
memcgroup: fix zone isolation OOM

mem_cgroup_charge_common shows a tendency to OOM without good reason, when
a memhog goes well beyond its rss limit but with plenty of swap available.
Seen on x86 but not on PowerPC; seen when the next patch omits swapcache
from memcgroup, but we presume it can happen without.

mem_cgroup_isolate_pages is not quite satisfying reclaim's criteria for OOM
avoidance.  Already it has to scan beyond the nr_to_scan limit when it
finds a !LRU page or an active page when handling inactive or an inactive
page when handling active.  It needs to do exactly the same when it finds a
page from the wrong zone (the x86 tests had two zones, the PowerPC tests
had only one).

Don't increment scan and then decrement it in these cases, just move the
incrementation down.  Fix recent off-by-one when checking against
nr_to_scan.  Cut out "Check if the meta page went away from under us",
presumably left over from early debugging: no amount of such checks could
save us if this list really were being updated without locking.

This change does make the unlimited scan while holding two spinlocks
even worse - bad for latency and bad for containment; but that's a
separate issue which is better left to be fixed a little later.

bugfix for memory cgroup controller: avoid !PageLRU page in mem_cgroup_isolate_pages

This patch makes mem_cgroup_isolate_pages() to be

  - ignore !PageLRU pages.
  - fixes the bug that isolation makes no progress if page_zone(page) != zone
    page once find. (just increment scan in this case.)

kswapd and memory migration removes a page from list when it handles
a page for reclaiming/migration.

Because __isolate_lru_page() doesn't moves page !PageLRU pages, it will
be safe to avoid touching !PageLRU() page and its page_cgroup.

11 years agobugfix for memory cgroup controller: migration under memory controller fix
KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Thu, 7 Feb 2008 08:14:10 +0000]
bugfix for memory cgroup controller: migration under memory controller fix

While using memory control cgroup, page-migration under it works as following.
==
 1. uncharge all refs at try to unmap.
 2. charge regs again remove_migration_ptes()
==
This is simple but has following problems.
==
 The page is uncharged and charged back again if *mapped*.
    - This means that cgroup before migration can be different from one after
      migration
    - If page is not mapped but charged as page cache, charge is just ignored
      (because not mapped, it will not be uncharged before migration)
      This is memory leak.
==
This patch tries to keep memory cgroup at page migration by increasing
one refcnt during it. 3 functions are added.

 mem_cgroup_prepare_migration() --- increase refcnt of page->page_cgroup
 mem_cgroup_end_migration()     --- decrease refcnt of page->page_cgroup
 mem_cgroup_page_migration() --- copy page->page_cgroup from old page to
                                 new page.

During migration
  - old page is under PG_locked.
  - new page is under PG_locked, too.
  - both old page and new page is not on LRU.

These 3 facts guarantee that page_cgroup() migration has no race.

Tested and worked well in x86_64/fake-NUMA box.

11 years agokswapd should only wait on IO if there is IO
Rik van Riel [Thu, 7 Feb 2008 08:14:08 +0000]
kswapd should only wait on IO if there is IO

The current kswapd (and try_to_free_pages) code has an oddity where the
code will wait on IO, even if there is no IO in flight.  This problem is
notable especially when the system scans through many unfreeable pages,
causing unnecessary stalls in the VM.

Additionally, tasks without __GFP_FS or __GFP_IO in the direct reclaim path
will sleep if a significant number of pages are encountered that should be
written out.  This gives kswapd a chance to write out those pages, while
the direct reclaim task sleeps.

David Rientjes [Thu, 7 Feb 2008 08:14:07 +0000]
oom: add sysctl to enable task memory dump

Adds a new sysctl, 'oom_dump_tasks', that enables the kernel to produce a
dump of all system tasks (excluding kernel threads) when performing an
OOM-killing.  Information includes pid, uid, tgid, vm size, rss, cpu,
oom_adj score, and name.

This is helpful for determining why there was an OOM condition and which
rogue task caused it.

It is configurable so that large systems, such as those with several
thousand tasks, do not incur a performance penalty associated with dumping
data they may not desire.

If an OOM was triggered as a result of a memory controller, the tasklist
shall be filtered to exclude tasks that are not a member of the same
cgroup.

Memory controller: task migration

Allow tasks to migrate from one cgroup to the other.  We migrate
mm_struct's mem_cgroup only when the thread group id migrates.

11 years agoMemory controller: memory accounting
Balbir Singh [Thu, 7 Feb 2008 08:13:53 +0000]
Memory controller: memory accounting

Add the accounting hooks.  The accounting is carried out for RSS and Page
Cache (unmapped) pages.  There is now a common limit and accounting for both.
The RSS accounting is accounted at page_add_*_rmap() and page_remove_rmap()
time.  Page cache is accounted at add_to_page_cache(),
__delete_from_page_cache().  Swap cache is also accounted for.

Each page's page_cgroup is protected with the last bit of the
page_cgroup pointer, this makes handling of race conditions involving
simultaneous mappings of a page easier.  A reference count is kept in the
page_cgroup to deal with cases where a page might be unmapped from the RSS
of all tasks, but still lives in the page cache.

Credits go to Vaidyanathan Srinivasan for helping with reference counting work
of the page cgroup.  Almost all of the page cache accounting code has help
from Vaidyanathan Srinivasan.

This patch precisely reverts the "swapoff: scan ptes preemptibly" patch
just presented.  It's a temporary measure to allow existing memory
controller patches to apply without rejects: in due course they should be
rendered down into one sensible patch, and this reversion disappear.

11 years agocgroups: move cgroups destroy() callbacks to cgroup_diput()
Paul Menage [Thu, 7 Feb 2008 08:13:45 +0000]
cgroups: move cgroups destroy() callbacks to cgroup_diput()

Move the calls to the cgroup subsystem destroy() methods from
cgroup_rmdir() to cgroup_diput().  This allows control file reads and
writes to access their subsystem state without having to be concerned with
locking against cgroup destruction - the control file dentry will keep the
cgroup and its subsystem state objects alive until the file is closed.

The documentation is updated to reflect the changed semantics of destroy();
additionally the locking comments for destroy() and some other methods were
clarified and decrustified.
