tridentfb: resource management fixes in probe function

Correct error paths in probe function.

The probe function enables mmio mode so it important to disable the mmio
mode before exiting the probe function.  Otherwise, the console is left in
unusable state (garbled fonts at least, lock up at worst).

Kprobes: move kprobe examples to samples/

Move kprobes examples from Documentation/kprobes.txt to under samples/.
Patch originally by Randy Dunlap.

o Updated the patch to apply on 2.6.25-rc3
o Modified examples code to build on multiple architectures. Currently,
  the kprobe and jprobe examples code works for x86 and powerpc
o Cleaned up unneeded #includes
o Cleaned up Kconfig per Sam Ravnborg's suggestions to fix build break
  on archs that don't have kretprobes
o Implemented suggestions by Mathieu Desnoyers on CONFIG_KRETPROBES
o Included Andrew Morton's cleanup based on x86-git
o Modified kretprobe_example to act as a arch-agnostic module to
  determine routine execution times:
Use 'modprobe kretprobe_example func=<func_name>' to determine
execution time of func_name in nanoseconds.

11 years agoalloc_percpu() fails to allocate percpu data
Eric Dumazet [Tue, 4 Mar 2008 22:28:35 +0000]
alloc_percpu() fails to allocate percpu data

Some oprofile results obtained while using tbench on a 2x2 cpu machine were
very surprising.

For example, loopback_xmit() function was using high number of cpu cycles
to perform the statistic updates, supposed to be real cheap since they use
percpu data

        pcpu_lstats = netdev_priv(dev);
        lb_stats = per_cpu_ptr(pcpu_lstats, smp_processor_id());
        lb_stats->packets++;  /* HERE : serious contention */
        lb_stats->bytes += skb->len;

struct pcpu_lstats is a small structure containing two longs.  It appears
that on my 32bits platform, alloc_percpu(8) allocates a single cache line,
instead of giving to each cpu a separate cache line.

Using the following patch gave me impressive boost in various benchmarks
( 6 % in tbench)
(all percpu_counters hit this bug too)

Long term fix (ie >= 2.6.26) would be to let each CPU allocate their own
block of memory, so that we dont need to roudup sizes to L1_CACHE_BYTES, or
merging the SGI stuff of course...

Note : SLUB vs SLAB is important here to *show* the improvement, since they
dont have the same minimum allocation sizes (8 bytes vs 32 bytes).  This
could very well explain regressions some guys reported when they switched
to SLUB.

CRIS v10: Include mm.h instead of vmstat.h in kernel/time.c

Commit 2f569afd9ced9ebec9a6eb3dbf6f83429be0a7b4
(CONFIG_HIGHPTE vs. sub-page page tables) introduced use of
inc_zone_page_state and dec_zone_page_state in include/linux/mm.h.

Those are defined in include/linux/vmstat.h, but after it includes
mm.h, making it impossible to include vmstat.h since inc_zone_page_state
and dec_zone_page_state then would be undefined.

arch/cris/arch-v10/kernel/time.c does just this, which makes the
CRIS v10 build break with the following error:

...

Current usage of unlazy_fpu() in ptrace specific routines is wrong.
unlazy_fpu() will not init fpu if the task never used math. So the

11 years agofreezer vs stopped or traced
Roland McGrath [Tue, 4 Mar 2008 04:22:05 +0000]
freezer vs stopped or traced

This changes the "freezer" code used by suspend/hibernate in its treatment
of tasks in TASK_STOPPED (job control stop) and TASK_TRACED (ptrace) states.

As I understand it, the intent of the "freezer" is to hold all tasks
from doing anything significant.  For this purpose, TASK_STOPPED and
TASK_TRACED are "frozen enough".  It's possible the tasks might resume
from ptrace calls (if the tracer were unfrozen) or from signals
(including ones that could come via timer interrupts, etc).  But this
doesn't matter as long as they quickly block again while "freezing" is
in effect.  Some minor adjustments to the signal.c code make sure that
try_to_freeze() very shortly follows all wakeups from both kinds of
stop.  This lets the freezer code safely leave stopped tasks unmolested.

Changing this fixes the longstanding bug of seeing after resuming from
suspend/hibernate your shell report "[1] Stopped" and the like for all
your jobs stopped by ^Z et al, as if you had freshly fg'd and ^Z'd them.
It also removes from the freezer the arcane special case treatment for
ptrace'd tasks, which relied on intimate knowledge of ptrace internals.

11 years agoKVM: VMX: Avoid rearranging switched guest msrs while they are loaded
Avi Kivity [Wed, 27 Feb 2008 14:06:57 +0000]
KVM: VMX: Avoid rearranging switched guest msrs while they are loaded

KVM tries to run as much as possible with the guest msrs loaded instead of
host msrs, since switching msrs is very expensive.  It also tries to minimize
the number of msrs switched according to the guest mode; for example,
MSR_LSTAR is needed only by long mode guests.  This optimization is done by
setup_msrs().

However, we must not change which msrs are switched while we are running with
guest msr state:

 - switch to guest msr state
 - call setup_msrs(), removing some msrs from the list
 - switch to host msr state, leaving a few guest msrs loaded

An easy way to trigger this is to kexec an x86_64 linux guest.  Early during
setup, the guest will switch EFER to not include SCE.  KVM will stop saving
MSR_LSTAR, and on the next msr switch it will leave the guest LSTAR loaded.
The next host syscall will end up in a random location in the kernel.

Fix by reloading the host msrs before changing the msr list.

Avi Kivity [Tue, 26 Feb 2008 20:12:10 +0000]
KVM: MMU: Fix race when instantiating a shadow pte

For improved concurrency, the guest walk is performed concurrently with other
vcpus.  This means that we need to revalidate the guest ptes once we have
write-protected the guest page tables, at which point they can no longer be
modified.

The current code attempts to avoid this check if the shadow page table is not
new, on the assumption that if it has existed before, the guest could not have
modified the pte without the shadow lock.  However the assumption is incorrect,
as the racing vcpu could have modified the pte, then instantiated the shadow
page, before our vcpu regains control:

  vcpu0        vcpu1

  fault
  walk pte

               modify pte
               fault in same pagetable
               instantiate shadow page

  lookup shadow page
  conclude it is old
  instantiate spte based on stale guest pte

We could do something clever with generation counters, but a test run by
Marcelo suggests this is unnecessary and we can just do the revalidation
unconditionally.  The pte will be in the processor cache and the check can
be quite fast.

This patch removes the #define READ_AHEAD 1024 from the driver and uses the
block layer defaults, instead. We have found that under certain workloads
the setting can cause a disk connected to the e200 controller to go offline.
If the disk hiccups the link may try to downshift but the controller is
never notified that the link successfully completed the renegotiation.
We've also found that performance using the block layer default of 32 pages
was on par with the 1024 setting. We tried setting it to zero at one time

block: separate out padding from alignment

The meaning of rq->data_len was changed to the length of an allocated

bsg. This patch restores the meaning of rq->data_len to the true data

The commit adjusts bio according to memory alignment
(queue_dma_alignment). However, memory alignment is NOT padding
alignment. This adjustment also breaks SG_IO friends and bsg. Padding
alignment needs to be fixed in a proper way (by a separate patch).

exit_notify: fix kill_orphaned_pgrp() usage with mt exit

1. exit_notify() always calls kill_orphaned_pgrp(). This is wrong, we
   should do this only when the whole process exits.

2. exit_notify() uses "current" as "ignored_task", obviously wrong.
   Use ->group_leader instead.

Test case:

void hup(int sig)
{
printf("HUP received\n");
}

void *tfunc(void *arg)
{
sleep(2);
printf("sub-thread exited\n");
return NULL;
}

int main(int argc, char *argv[])
{
if (!fork()) {
signal(SIGHUP, hup);
kill(getpid(), SIGSTOP);
exit(0);
}

pthread_t thr;
pthread_create(&thr, NULL, tfunc, NULL);

sleep(1);
printf("main thread exited\n");
syscall(__NR_exit, 0);

return 0;
}

output:

Oleg Nesterov [Sun, 2 Mar 2008 18:44:42 +0000]
will_become_orphaned_pgrp: partially fix insufficient ->exit_state check

p->exit_state != 0 doesn't mean this process is dead, it may have
sub-threads.  Change the code to use "p->exit_state && thread_group_empty(p)"
instead.

Without this patch, ^Z doesn't deliver SIGTSTP to the foreground process
if the main thread has exited.

However, the new check is not perfect either.  There is a window when
exit_notify() drops tasklist and before release_task().  Suppose that
the last (non-leader) thread exits.  This means that entire group exits,
but thread_group_empty() is not true yet.

As Eric pointed out, is_global_init() is wrong as well, but I did not
dare to do other changes.

Just for the record, has_stopped_jobs() is absolutely wrong too.  But we
can't fix it now, we should first fix SIGNAL_STOP_STOPPED issues.

Even with this patch ^Z doesn't play well with the dead main thread.
The task is stopped correctly but do_wait(WSTOPPED) won't see it.  This
is another unrelated issue, will be (hopefully) fixed separately.

slub: Use the objsize from the kmem_cache_cpu structure

No need to access the kmem_cache structure. We have the same value
in kmem_cache_cpu.

11 years agoslub: Remove useless checks in alloc_debug_processing
Christoph Lameter [Sat, 16 Feb 2008 07:45:24 +0000]
slub: Remove useless checks in alloc_debug_processing

Alloc debug processing is never called with a NULL object pointer.
No reason to check for NULL.

11 years agoslub: Remove objsize check in kmem_cache_flags()
Christoph Lameter [Sat, 16 Feb 2008 07:45:24 +0000]
slub: Remove objsize check in kmem_cache_flags()

There is no page->offset anymore and also no associated limit on the number
of objects. The page->offset field was removed for 2.6.24. So the check
in kmem_cache_flags() is now also obsolete (should have been dropped
earlier, somehow a hunk vanished).

11 years agoslub: rename slab_objects to show_slab_objects
Christoph Lameter [Fri, 15 Feb 2008 23:22:21 +0000]
slub: rename slab_objects to show_slab_objects

The sysfs callback is better named show_slab_objects since it is always
called from the xxx_show callbacks. We need the name for other purposes
later.

Christoph Lameter [Sat, 1 Mar 2008 21:40:44 +0000]
Revert "unique end pointer" patch

This only made sense for the alternate fastpath which was reverted last week.

Mathieu is working on a new version that addresses the fastpath issues but that
new code first needs to go through mm and it is not clear if we need the
unique end pointers with his new scheme.
