10 years agoLinuxPPS: core support
Rodolfo Giometti [Wed, 17 Jun 2009 23:28:37 +0000]
LinuxPPS: core support

This patch adds the kernel side of the PPS support currently named
"LinuxPPS".

PPS means "pulse per second" and a PPS source is just a device which
provides a high precision signal each second so that an application can
use it to adjust system clock time.

Common use is the combination of the NTPD as userland program with a GPS
receiver as PPS source to obtain a wallclock-time with sub-millisecond
synchronisation to UTC.

To obtain this goal the userland programs shoud use the PPS API
specification (RFC 2783 - Pulse-Per-Second API for UNIX-like Operating
Systems, Version 1.0) which in part is implemented by this patch.  It
provides a set of chars devices, one per PPS source, which can be used to
get the time signal.  The RFC's functions can be implemented by accessing
to these char devices.

Neil Horman [Wed, 17 Jun 2009 23:28:17 +0000]
kexec: sysrq: simplify sysrq-c handler

Currently the sysrq-c handler is bit over-engineered.  Its behavior is
dependent on a few compile time and run time factors that alter its
behavior which is really unnecessecary.

If CONFIG_KEXEC is not configured, sysrq-c, crashes the system with a NULL
pointer dereference.  If CONFIG_KEXEC is configured, it calls crash_kexec
directly, which implies that the kexec kernel will either be booted (if
its been previously loaded), or it will simply do nothing (the no kexec
kernel has been loaded).

It would be much easier to just simplify the whole thing to dereference a
NULL pointer all the time regardless of configuration.  That way, it will
always try to crash the system, and if a kexec kernel has been loaded into
reserved space, it will still boot from the page fault trap handler
(assuming panic_on_oops is set appropriately).

w1-gpio: add external pull-up enable callback

On embedded devices, sleep mode conditions can be tricky to handle,
Especially when processors tend to pull-down the w1 bus during sleep.  Bus
slaves (such as the ds2760) may interpret this as a reason for power-down
conditions and entirely switch off the device.

This patch adds a callback function pointer to let users switch on and off
the external pull-up resistor.  This lets the outside world know whether
the processor is currently actively driving the bus or not.

When this callback is not provided, the code behaviour won't change.

10 years agogcov: add gcov profiling infrastructure
Peter Oberparleiter [Wed, 17 Jun 2009 23:28:08 +0000]
gcov: add gcov profiling infrastructure

Enable the use of GCC's coverage testing tool gcov [1] with the Linux
kernel.  gcov may be useful for:

 * debugging (has this code been reached at all?)
 * test improvement (how do I change my test to cover these lines?)
 * minimizing kernel configurations (do I need this option if the
   associated code is never run?)

The profiling patch incorporates the following changes:

 * change kbuild to include profiling flags
 * provide functions needed by profiling code
 * present profiling data as files in debugfs

Note that on some architectures, enabling gcc's profiling option
"-fprofile-arcs" for the entire kernel may trigger compile/link/
run-time problems, some of which are caused by toolchain bugs and
others which require adjustment of architecture code.

For this reason profiling the entire kernel is initially restricted
to those architectures for which it is known to work without changes.
This restriction can be lifted once an architecture has been tested
and found compatible with gcc's profiling. Profiling of single files
or directories is still available on all platforms (see config help
text).

10 years agofutex: documentation: fix inconsistent description of futex list_op_pending
Matt Helsley [Wed, 17 Jun 2009 23:27:58 +0000]
futex: documentation: fix inconsistent description of futex list_op_pending

Strictly speaking list_op_pending points to the 'lock entry', not the
'lock word' (which is actually at 'offset' from 'lock entry').  We can
infer this based on reading the code in kernel/futex.c:

    struct robust_list __user *entry, *next_entry, *pending;
...
            if (fetch_robust_entry(&pending, &head->list_op_pending, &pip))
                    return;
            ...
            if (pending)
                    handle_futex_death((void __user *)pending + futex_offset,
                                       curr, pip);

Which is also consistent with the rest of the docs on robust futex lists.

pids: clean up find_task_by_pid variants

find_task_by_pid_type_ns is only used to implement find_task_by_vpid and
find_task_by_pid_ns, but both of them pass PIDTYPE_PID as first argument.
So just fold find_task_by_pid_type_ns into find_task_by_pid_ns and use
find_task_by_pid_ns to implement find_task_by_vpid.

While we're at it also remove the exports for find_task_by_pid_ns and
find_task_by_vpid - we don't have any modular callers left as the only
modular caller of he old pre pid namespace find_task_by_pid (gfs2) was
switched to pid_task which operates on a struct pid pointer instead of a
pid_t.  Given the confusion about pid_t values vs namespace that's
generally the better option anyway and I think we're better of restricting
modules to do it that way.

migration_call() can set ->should_stop and forget about this thread.  But

kthreads: rework kthread_stop()

Based on Eric's patch which in turn was based on my patch.

kthread_stop() has the nasty problems:

- it runs unpredictably long with the global semaphore held.

- it deadlocks if kthread itself does kthread_stop() before it obeys
  the kthread_should_stop() request.

- it is not useable if kthread exits on its own, see for example the
  ugly "wait_to_die:" hack in migration_thread()

- it is not possible to just tell kthread it should stop, we must always
  wait for its exit.

With this patch kthread() allocates all neccesary data (struct kthread) on
its own stack, globals kthread_stop_xxx are deleted.  ->vfork_done is used
as a pointer into "struct kthread", this means kthread_stop() can easily

10 years agokthreads: simplify the startup synchronization
Oleg Nesterov [Wed, 17 Jun 2009 23:27:43 +0000]
kthreads: simplify the startup synchronization

We use two completions two create the kernel thread, this is a bit ugly.
kthread() wakes up create_kthread() via ->started, then create_kthread()
wakes up the caller kthread_create() via ->done.  But kthread() does not
need to wait for kthread(), it can just return.  Instead kthread() itself
can wake up the caller of kthread_create().

Kill kthread_create_info->started, ->done is enough.  This improves the
scalability a bit and sijmplifies the code.

The only problem if kernel_thread() fails, in that case create_kthread()
must do complete(&create->done).

ptrace: do not use task_lock() for attach

Remove the "Nasty, nasty" lock dance in ptrace_attach()/ptrace_traceme() -
from now task_lock() has nothing to do with ptrace at all.

With the recent changes nobody uses task_lock() to serialize with ptrace,
but in fact it was never needed and it was never used consistently.

However ptrace_attach() calls __ptrace_may_access() and needs task_lock()
to pin task->mm for get_dumpable().  But we can call __ptrace_may_access()
before we take tasklist_lock, ->cred_exec_mutex protects us against
do_execve() path which can change creds and MMF_DUMP* flags.

(ugly, but we can't use ptrace_may_access() because it hides the error
code, so we have to take task_lock() and use __ptrace_may_access()).

NOTE: this change assumes that LSM hooks, security_ptrace_may_access() and
security_ptrace_traceme(), can be called without task_lock() held.

  With or without this change we can race with daemonize() which

  check, but this doesn't matter because reparent_to_kthreadd()

- Kill "!task->mm" check. We don't really care about ->mm != NULL,
  and the task can call exit_mm() right after we drop task_lock().
  What we need is to make sure we can't attach after exit_notify(),

the global LRU does.

Now, at __isolate_lru_page() retruns -EBUSY, the page is rotated to the
tail of LRU in global LRU's isolate LRU pages.  But in memcg, it's not
handled.  This makes memcg do the same behavior as global LRU and rotate
LRU in the page is busy.

10 years agomemcg: fix behavior under memory.limit equals to memsw.limit
KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Wed, 17 Jun 2009 23:27:19 +0000]
memcg: fix behavior under memory.limit equals to memsw.limit

A user can set memcg.limit_in_bytes == memcg.memsw.limit_in_bytes when the
user just want to limit the total size of applications, in other words,
not very interested in memory usage itself.  In this case, swap-out will
be done only by global-LRU.

But, under current implementation, memory.limit_in_bytes is checked at
first and try_to_free_page() may do swap-out.  But, that swap-out is
useless for memsw.limit_in_bytes and the thread may hit limit again.

This patch tries to fix the current behavior at memory.limit ==
memsw.limit case.  And documentation is updated to explain the behavior of
this special case.

10 years agomemcg: fix swap accounting
KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Wed, 17 Jun 2009 23:27:17 +0000]
memcg: fix swap accounting

This patch fixes mis-accounting of swap usage in memcg.

In the current implementation, memcg's swap account is uncharged only when
swap is completely freed.  But there are several cases where swap cannot
be freed cleanly.  For handling that, this patch changes that memcg
uncharges swap account when swap has no references other than cache.

By this, memcg's swap entry accounting can be fully synchronous with the
application's behavior.

This patch also changes memcg's hooks for swap-out.

memcg: add file-based RSS accounting

Add file RSS tracking per memory cgroup

We currently don't track file RSS, the RSS we report is actually anon RSS.
 All the file mapped pages, come in through the page cache and get
accounted there.  This patch adds support for accounting file RSS pages.
It should

1. Help improve the metrics reported by the memory resource controller
2. Will form the basis for a future shared memory accounting heuristic
   that has been proposed by Kamezawa.

Unfortunately, we cannot rename the existing "rss" keyword used in
memory.stat to "anon_rss".  We however, add "mapped_file" data and hope to
educate the end user through documentation.

10 years agocgroups: forbid noprefix if mounting more than just cpuset subsystem
Li Zefan [Wed, 17 Jun 2009 23:26:33 +0000]
cgroups: forbid noprefix if mounting more than just cpuset subsystem

The 'noprefix' option was introduced for backwards-compatibility of
cpuset, but actually it can be used when mounting other subsystems.

This results in possibility of name collision, and now the collision can
really happen, because we have 'stat' file in both memory and cpuacct
subsystem:

# mount -t cgroup -o noprefix,memory,cpuacct xxx /mnt

Cgroup will happily mount the 2 subsystems, but only 'stat' file of memory
subsys can be seen.

We don't want users to use nopreifx, and also want to avoid name
collision, so we change to allow noprefix only if mounting just the cpuset
subsystem.

10 years agoreiserfs: fix warnings with gcc 4.4
Jeff Mahoney [Wed, 17 Jun 2009 23:26:29 +0000]
reiserfs: fix warnings with gcc 4.4

Several code paths in reiserfs have a construct like:

 if (is_direntry_le_ih(ih = B_N_PITEM_HEAD(src, item_num))) ...

which, in addition to being ugly, end up causing compiler warnings with
gcc 4.4.0.  Previous compilers didn't issue a warning.

fs/reiserfs/do_balan.c:1273: warning: operation on `aux_ih' may be undefined
fs/reiserfs/lbalance.c:393: warning: operation on `ih' may be undefined
fs/reiserfs/lbalance.c:421: warning: operation on `ih' may be undefined
fs/reiserfs/lbalance.c:777: warning: operation on `ih' may be undefined

I believe this is due to the ih being passed to macros which evaluate the
argument more than once.  This is old code and we haven't seen any
problems with it, but this patch eliminates the warnings.

It converts the multiple evaluation macros to static inlines and does a
preassignment for the cases that were causing the warnings because that
code is just ugly.
