Jeff Mahoney [Sun, 1 Oct 2006 06:28:45 +0000]
[PATCH] reiserfs: eliminate minimum window size for bitmap searching

When a file system becomes fragmented (using MythTV, for example), the
bigalloc window searching ends up causing huge performance problems.  In a
file system presented by a user experiencing this bug, the file system was
90% free, but no 32-block free windows existed on the entire file system.
This causes the allocator to scan the entire file system for each 128k
write before backing down to searching for individual blocks.

In the end, finding a contiguous window for all the blocks in a write is an
advantageous special case, but one that can be found naturally when such a
window exists anyway.

This patch removes the bigalloc window searching, and has been proven to
fix the test case described above.

12 years ago[PATCH] reiserfs: on-demand bitmap loading
Jeff Mahoney [Sun, 1 Oct 2006 06:28:44 +0000]
[PATCH] reiserfs: on-demand bitmap loading

This is the patch the three previous ones have been leading up to.

It changes the behavior of ReiserFS from loading and caching all the bitmaps
as special, to treating the bitmaps like any other bit of metadata and just
letting the system-wide caches figure out what to hang on to.

Buffer heads are allocated on the fly, so there is no need to retain pointers
to all of them.  The caching of the metadata occurs when the data is read and
updated, and is considered invalid and uncached until then.

I needed to remove the vs-4040 check for performing a duplicate operation on a
particular bit.  The reason is that while the other sites for working with
bitmaps are allowed to schedule, is_reusable() is called from do_balance(),
which will panic if a schedule occurs in certain places.

The benefit of on-demand bitmaps clearly outweighs a sanity check that depends
on a compile-time option that is discouraged.

12 years ago[PATCH] reiserfs: reorganize bitmap loading functions
Jeff Mahoney [Sun, 1 Oct 2006 06:28:43 +0000]
[PATCH] reiserfs: reorganize bitmap loading functions

This patch moves the bitmap loading code from super.c to bitmap.c

The code is also restructured somewhat.  The only difference between new
format bitmaps and old format bitmaps is where they are.  That's a two liner
before loading the block to use the correct one.  There's no need for an
entirely separate code path.

The load path is generally the same, with the pattern being to throw out a
bunch of requests and then wait for them, then cache the metadata from the
contents.

Again, like the previous patches, the purpose is to set up for later ones.

Update: There was a bug in the previously posted version of this that resulted
in corruption.  The problem was that bitmap 0 on new format file systems must
be treated specially, and wasn't.  A stupid bug with an easy fix.

This is hopefully the last fix for the disaster that is the reiserfs bitmap
patch set.

If a bitmap block was full, first_zero_hint would end up at zero since it
would never be changed from it's zeroed out value.  This just sets it
beyond the end of the bitmap block.  If any bits are freed, it will be
reset to a valid bit.  When info->free_count = 0, then we already know it's
full.

[PATCH] reiserfs: clean up bitmap block buffer head references

Similar to the SB_JOURNAL cleanup that was accepted a while ago, this patch
uses a temporary variable for buffer head references from the bitmap info
array.

This makes the code much more readable in some areas.

It also uses proper reference counting, doing a get_bh() after using the
pointer from the array and brelse()'ing it later.  This may seem silly, but a
later patch will replace the simple temporary variables with an actual read,
so the reference freeing will be used then.

Jeff Mahoney [Sun, 1 Oct 2006 06:28:40 +0000]
[PATCH] reiserfs: fix is_reusable bitmap check to not traverse the bitmap info array

There is a check in is_reusable to determine if a particular block is a bitmap
block.  It verifies this by going through the array of bitmap block buffer
heads and comparing the block number to each one.

Bitmap blocks are at defined locations on the disk in both old and current
formats.  Simply checking against the known good values is enough.

This is a trivial optimization for a non-production codepath, but this is the
first in a series of patches that will ultimately remove the buffer heads from
that array.

except for one thing: RTC updating code in (old) ppc and xtensa use a
condition "jiffies - wall_jiffies == 1".  This condition is never met so I

Roman Zippel [Sun, 1 Oct 2006 06:28:28 +0000]
[PATCH] ntp: convert to the NTP4 reference model

This converts the kernel ntp model into a model which matches the nanokernel
reference implementations.  The previous patches already increased the
resolution and precision of the computations, so that this conversion becomes
quite simple.

<linux@horizon.com> explains:

The original NTP kernel interface was defined in units of microseconds.
That's what Linux implements.  As computers have gotten faster and can now
split microseconds easily, a new kernel interface using nanosecond units was
defined ("the nanokernel", confusing as that name is to OS hackers), and
there's an STA_NANO bit in the adjtimex() status field to tell the application
which units it's using.

The current ntpd supports both, but Linux loses some possible timing
resolution because of quantization effects, and the ntpd hackers would really
like to be able to drop the backwards compatibility code.

Ulrich Windl has been maintaining a patch set to do the conversion for years,
but it's hard to keep in sync.

David Brownell [Sun, 1 Oct 2006 06:28:16 +0000]
[PATCH] RTC class: error checks

The rtc_is_valid_tm() routine needs to treat some of the fields it checks as
unsigned, to prevent wrongly accepting invalid rtc_time structs; this is the
same approach used elsewhere in the RTC code for such tests.

Conversely, rtc_proc_show() is missing one invalid-day-of-month test that
rtc_is_valid_tm() makes: there is no day zero.

[PATCH] RTC class uses subsys_init

This makes RTC core components use "subsys_init" instead of "module_init", as
appropriate for subsystem infrastructure.  This is mostly useful for
statically linking drivers in other parts of the tree that may provide an RTC
interface as a secondary functionality (e.g.  part of a multifunction chip);
they won't need to worry so much about drivers/Makefile link order.

ppc can boot one single binary on prep, chrp and pmac boards.  ppc64 can
boot one single binary on pseries and G5 boards.  pmac has no legacy io,
probing for PC style legacy hardware (or accessing the legacy io area
regulary) may lead to a hard crash:

* add check for parport_pc, exit on pmac.  32bit chrp has no
  ->check_legacy_ioport, the probe is always called.  64bit chrp has
  check_legacy_ioport, check for a "parallel" node

* add check for isapnp, only PReP boards may have real ISA slots.  32bit
  PReP will have no ->check_legacy_ioport, the probe is always called.

* update code in i8042_platform_init.  Run ->check_legacy_ioport first,
  always call request_region.  No functional change.  Remove whitespace
  before i8042_reset init.

Powerpc already has a directed yield for CONFIG_PREEMPT="n".  To make it
work with CONFIG_PREEMPT="y" as well the _raw_{spin,read,write}_relax
primitives need to be defined to call __spin_yield() for spinlocks and
__rw_yield() for rw-locks.

Martin Schwidefsky [Sun, 1 Oct 2006 06:27:43 +0000]
[PATCH] Directed yield: cpu_relax variants for spinlocks and rw-locks

On systems running with virtual cpus there is optimization potential in
regard to spinlocks and rw-locks.  If the virtual cpu that has taken a lock
is known to a cpu that wants to acquire the same lock it is beneficial to
yield the timeslice of the virtual cpu in favour of the cpu that has the
lock (directed yield).

With CONFIG_PREEMPT="n" this can be implemented by the architecture without
common code changes.  Powerpc already does this.

With CONFIG_PREEMPT="y" the lock loops are coded with _raw_spin_trylock,
_raw_read_trylock and _raw_write_trylock in kernel/spinlock.c.  If the lock
could not be taken cpu_relax is called.  A directed yield is not possible
because cpu_relax doesn't know anything about the lock.  To be able to
yield the lock in favour of the current lock holder variants of cpu_relax
for spinlocks and rw-locks are needed.  The new _raw_spin_relax,
_raw_read_relax and _raw_write_relax primitives differ from cpu_relax
insofar that they have an argument: a pointer to the lock structure.

[PATCH] leds: turn LED off when changing triggers

I was playing with LED triggers when I noticed that changing from heartbeat
(or ide-disk) to "none" at the right moment would leave the LED stuck on.
This is easy to reproduce by doing "find / >/dev/null" with the ide-disk
trigger enabled and then switching to "none".

Here is a patch that fixes the problem by explicitly turning the LED off
after removing the existing trigger.

[PATCH] allow /proc/config.gz to be built as a module

The driver for /proc/config.gz consumes rather a lot of memory and it is in
fact possible to build it as a module.

In some ways this is a bit risky, because the .config which is used for
compiling kernel/configs.c isn't necessarily the same as the .config which was
used to build vmlinux.

But OTOH the potential memory savings are decent, and it'd be fairly dumb to
build your configs.o with a different .config.

[PATCH] kmemdup: introduce

One of idiomatic ways to duplicate a region of memory is

dst = kmalloc(len, GFP_KERNEL);
if (!dst)
return -ENOMEM;
memcpy(dst, src, len);

which is neat code except a programmer needs to write size twice.  Which
sometimes leads to mistakes.  If len passed to kmalloc is smaller that len
passed to memcpy, it's straight overwrite-beyond-end.  If len passed to
memcpy is smaller than len passed to kmalloc, it's either a) legit
behaviour ;-), or b) cloned buffer will contain garbage in second half.

Slight trolling of commit lists shows several duplications bugs
done exactly because of diverged lenghts:

Linux:
[CRYPTO]: Fix memcpy/memset args.
[PATCH] memcpy/memset fixes
OpenBSD:
kerberosV/src/lib/asn1: der_copy.c:1.4

If programmer is given only one place to play with lengths, I believe, such
mistakes could be avoided.

With kmemdup, the snippet above will be rewritten as:

dst = kmemdup(src, len, GFP_KERNEL);
if (!dst)
return -ENOMEM;

This also leads to smaller code (kzalloc effect). Quick grep shows
200+ places where kmemdup() can be used.

[PATCH] maximum latency tracking: ALSA support

Add maximum latency tracking to the ALSA subsystem for PCM playback.  In
ALSA, the playback application controls the buffer size and thus indirectly
the period of latency that it can deal with.  This patch uses 75% of the
total available latency as threshold to announce to the latency subsystem;
While 75% is a crude heuristic it's a quite reasonable one; the remaining
25% can be used for all driver processing for the next samples which is
also proportional to the size of the buffer.

With ogg123 a latency setting of about 4msec was seen (at 44Khz), while
with the "play" command a much longer maximum tolerable latency was seen.
Other, more multimedia oriented players as well as games, will have a lot
smaller buffers to allow better synchronization and those will actually get
into the latency domains where there is impact on the power management
rules.

12 years ago[PATCH] maximum latency tracking infrastructure
Arjan van de Ven [Sun, 1 Oct 2006 06:27:17 +0000]
[PATCH] maximum latency tracking infrastructure

Add infrastructure to track "maximum allowable latency" for power saving
policies.

The reason for adding this infrastructure is that power management in the
idle loop needs to make a tradeoff between latency and power savings
(deeper power save modes have a longer latency to running code again).  The
code that today makes this tradeoff just does a rather simple algorithm;
however this is not good enough: There are devices and use cases where a
lower latency is required than that the higher power saving states provide.
 An example would be audio playback, but another example is the ipw2100
wireless driver that right now has a very direct and ugly acpi hook to
disable some higher power states randomly when it gets certain types of
error.

The proposed solution is to have an interface where drivers can

* announce the maximum latency (in microseconds) that they can deal with
* modify this latency
* give up their constraint

and a function where the code that decides on power saving strategy can
query the current global desired maximum.

This patch has a user of each side: on the consumer side, ACPI is patched
to use this, on the producer side the ipw2100 driver is patched.

A generic maximum latency is also registered of 2 timer ticks (more and you
lose accurate time tracking after all).

While the existing users of the patch are x86 specific, the infrastructure
is not.  I'd like to ask the arch maintainers of other architectures if the
infrastructure is generic enough for their use (assuming the architecture
has such a tradeoff as concept at all), and the sound/multimedia driver
owners to look at the driver facing API to see if this is something they
can use.

add_memory to panic.  acpi_get_node would have to decode the resource from the
handle (a lenghty proposition).  This seems to be the cleanist point to
interject the hook.

Keith Mannthey [Sun, 1 Oct 2006 06:27:06 +0000]
[PATCH] hot-add-mem x86_64: memory_add_physaddr_to_nid enable

The api for hot-add memory already has a construct for finding nodes based on
an address, memory_add_physaddr_to_nid.  This patch allows the fucntion to do
something besides return 0.  It uses the nodes_add infomation to lookup to
node info for a hot add event.

[PATCH] hot-add-mem x86_64: Enable SPARSEMEM in srat.c

Enable x86_64 srat.c to share code between both reserve and sparsemem based
add memory paths.  Both paths need the hot-add area node locality infomration
(nodes_add).  This code refactors the code path to allow this.

Create Kconfig namespace for MEMORY_HOTPLUG_RESERVE and MEMORY_HOTPLUG_SPARSE.
 This is needed to create a disticiton between the 2 paths.  Selecting the
high level opiton of MEMORY_HOTPLUG will get you MEMORY_HOTPLUG_SPARSE if you

12 years ago[PATCH] PCI quirks update
Alan Cox [Sun, 1 Oct 2006 06:27:03 +0000]
[PATCH] PCI quirks update

This fixes two things

Firstly someone mistakenly used "errata" for the singular.  This causes
Dave Woodhouse to emit diagnostics whenever the string is read, and so
should be fixed.

Secondly the AMD AGP tunnel has an erratum which causes hangs if you try
and do direct PCI to AGP transfers in some cases.  We have a flag for
PCI/PCI failures but we need a different flag for this really as in this
case we don't want to stop PCI/PCI transfers using things like IOAT and the
new RAID offload work.

I'll post some updates to make proper use of the PCIAGP flag in the
media/video drivers to Mauro.

probably because libsas was a very recent merge.
