12 years agoUse stop_machine_run in the Intel RNG driver
Prarit Bhargava [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:25:08 +0000]
Use stop_machine_run in the Intel RNG driver

Replace call_smp_function with stop_machine_run in the Intel RNG driver.

CPU A has done read_lock(&lock)
CPU B has done write_lock_irq(&lock) and is waiting for A to release the lock.

A third CPU calls call_smp_function and issues the IPI.  CPU A takes CPU
C's IPI.  CPU B is waiting with interrupts disabled and does not see the
IPI.  CPU C is stuck waiting for CPU B to respond to the IPI.

Deadlock.

The solution is to use stop_machine_run instead of call_smp_function
(call_smp_function should not be called in situations where the CPUs may be
suspended).

Fix constant folding and poor optimization in byte swapping code

Constant folding does not work for the swabXX() byte swapping functions,
and the C versions optimize poorly.

Attempting to initialize a global variable to swab16(0x1234) or put
something like "case swab32(42):" in a switch statement will not compile.
It can work, swab.h just isn't doing it correctly.  This patch fixes that.

Contrary to the comment in asm-i386/byteorder.h, gcc does not recognize the
"C" version of swab16 and turn it into efficient code.  gcc can do this,
just not with the current code.  The simple function:

u16 foo(u16 x) { return swab16(x); }

Would compile to:
        movzwl  %ax, %eax
        movl    %eax, %edx
        shrl    $8, %eax
        sall    $8, %edx
        orl     %eax, %edx

With this patch, it will compile to:
        rolw    $8, %ax

I also attempted to document the maze different macros/inline functions
that are used to create the final product.

12 years agofix quadratic behavior of shrink_dcache_parent()
Miklos Szeredi [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:23:46 +0000]
fix quadratic behavior of shrink_dcache_parent()

The time shrink_dcache_parent() takes, grows quadratically with the depth
of the tree under 'parent'.  This starts to get noticable at about 10,000.

These kinds of depths don't occur normally, and filesystems which invoke
shrink_dcache_parent() via d_invalidate() seem to have other depth
dependent timings, so it's not even easy to expose this problem.

However with FUSE it's easy to create a deep tree and d_invalidate()
will also get called.  This can make a syscall hang for a very long
time.

This is the original discovery of the problem by Russ Cox:

  http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.file-systems.fuse.devel/3826

The following patch fixes the quadratic behavior, by optionally allowing
prune_dcache() to prune ancestors of a dentry in one go, instead of doing
it one at a time.

Common code in dput() and prune_one_dentry() is extracted into a new helper
function d_kill().

shrink_dcache_parent() as well as shrink_dcache_sb() are converted to use
the ancestry-pruner option.  Only for shrink_dcache_memory() is this
behavior not desirable, so it keeps using the old algorithm.

12 years agoreduce size of task_struct on 64-bit machines
William Cohen [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:23:41 +0000]
reduce size of task_struct on 64-bit machines

This past week I was playing around with that pahole tool
(http://oops.ghostprotocols.net:81/acme/dwarves/) and looking at the size
of various struct in the kernel.  I was surprised by the size of the
task_struct on x86_64, approaching 4K.  I looked through the fields in
task_struct and found that a number of them were declared as "unsigned
long" rather than "unsigned int" despite them appearing okay as 32-bit
sized fields.  On x86_64 "unsigned long" ends up being 8 bytes in size and
forces 8 byte alignment.  Is there a reason there a reason they are
"unsigned long"?

The patch below drops the size of the struct from 3808 bytes (60 64-byte
cachelines) to 3760 bytes (59 64-byte cachelines).  A couple other fields
in the task struct take a signficant amount of space:

struct thread_struct       thread;               688
struct held_lock           held_locks[30];       1680

CONFIG_LOCKDEP is turned on in the .config

Cc: Andreas Dilger <adilger@dilger.ca>
Cc: <linux-ext4@vger.kernel.org>

Andreas says:

This patch is now treating timestamps with the high bit set as negative
times (before Jan 1, 1970).  This means we lose 1/2 of the possible range
of timestamps (lopping off 68 years before unix timestamp overflow -
now only 30 years away :-) to handle the extremely rare case of setting
timestamps into the distant past.

If we are only interested in fixing the underflow case, we could just
limit the values to 0 instead of storing negative values.  At worst this
will skew the timestamp by a few hours for timezones in the far east
(files would still show Jan 1, 1970 in "ls -l" output).

That said, it seems 32-bit systems (mine at least) allow files to be set
into the past (01/01/1907 works fine) so it seems this patch is bringing
the x86_64 behaviour into sync with other kernels.

On the plus side, we have a patch that is ready to add nanosecond timestamps
to ext3 and as an added bonus adds 2 high bits to the on-disk timestamp so
this extends the maximum date to 2242.

uml: make hostfs_setattr() support operations on unlinked open files

This patch allows hostfs_setattr() to work on unlinked open files by calling
set_attr() (the userspace part) with the inode's fd.

Without this, applications that depend on doing attribute changes to unlinked
open files will fail.

It works by using the fd versions instead of the path ones (for example

available.

12 years agoAdd white list into modpost.c for memory hotplug code and ia64's machvec section

Add white list into modpost.c for memory hotplug code and ia64's machvec section

This patch is add white list into modpost.c for some functions and
ia64's section to fix section mismatchs.

  sparse_index_alloc() and zone_wait_table_init() calls bootmem allocator
  at boot time, and kmalloc/vmalloc at hotplug time. If config
  memory hotplug is on, there are references of bootmem allocater(init text)
  from them (normal text). This is cause of section mismatch.

  Bootmem is called by many functions and it must be
  used only at boot time. I think __init of them should keep for
  section mismatch check. So, I would like to register sparse_index_alloc()
  and zone_wait_table_init() into white list.

  In addition, ia64's .machvec section is function table of some platform
  dependent code. It is mixture of .init.text and normal text. These
  reference of __init functions are valid too.

12 years agoIncrease slab redzone to 64bits
David Woodhouse [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:22:59 +0000]
Increase slab redzone to 64bits

There are two problems with the existing redzone implementation.

Firstly, it's causing misalignment of structures which contain a 64-bit
integer, such as netfilter's 'struct ipt_entry' -- causing netfilter
modules to fail to load because of the misalignment.  (In particular, the
first check in
net/ipv4/netfilter/ip_tables.c::check_entry_size_and_hooks())

On ppc32 and sparc32, amongst others, __alignof__(uint64_t) == 8.

With slab debugging, we use 32-bit redzones. And allocated slab objects
aren't sufficiently aligned to hold a structure containing a uint64_t.

By _just_ setting ARCH_KMALLOC_MINALIGN to __alignof__(u64) we'd disable
redzone checks on those architectures.  By using 64-bit redzones we avoid that
loss of debugging, and also fix the other problem while we're at it.

When investigating this, I noticed that on 64-bit platforms we're using a
32-bit value of RED_ACTIVE/RED_INACTIVE in the 64-bit memory location set
aside for the redzone.  Which means that the four bytes immediately before
or after the allocated object at 0x00,0x00,0x00,0x00 for LE and BE
machines, respectively.  Which is probably not the most useful choice of
poison value.

One way to fix both of those at once is just to switch to 64-bit
redzones in all cases.

Jeff Dike [Sun, 6 May 2007 21:51:48 +0000]
uml: more page fault path trimming

More trimming of the page fault path.

Permissions are passed around in a single int rather than one bit per
int.  The permission values are copied from libc so that they can be
passed to mmap and mprotect without any further conversion.

The register sets used by do_syscall_stub and copy_context_skas0 are
initialized once, at boot time, rather than once per call.

wait_stub_done checks whether it is getting the signals it expects by
comparing the wait status to a mask containing bits for the signals of
interest rather than comparing individually to the signal numbers.  It
also has one check for a wait failure instead of two.  The caller is
expected to do the initial continue of the stub.  This gets rid of an
argument and some logic.  The fname argument is gone, as that can be
had from a stack trace.

user_signal() is collapsed into userspace() as it is basically one or
two lines of code afterwards.

The physical memory remapping stuff is gone, as it is unused.

flush_tlb_page is inlined.

uml: speed page fault path

Give the page fault code a specialized path.  There is only one page to look

There's only going to be one host operation, so there are no opportunities for
merging.  So, we go straight to the pte we want, figure out what needs doing,
and do it.

While I was in here, I fixed the wart where the address passed to unmap was a
void *, but an unsigned long to map and protect.

This gives me just under 10% on a kernel build.

Code running on the initial UML stack can't receive or process signals since
current must be valid when IRQs are handled, and there is no current for this

So, instead of using UML_LONGJMP and UML_SETJMP, which are careful to save and
restore signal state, and, as a side-effect, handle any deferred signals,
start_idle_thread must use the bare equivalents, which don't do anything with

uml: send pointers instead of structures to I/O thread

Instead of writing entire structures between UML and the I/O thread, we send
pointers.  This cuts down on the amount of data being copied and possibly
allows more requests to be pending between the two.

12 years agouml: batch I/O requests
Jeff Dike [Sun, 6 May 2007 21:51:36 +0000]
uml: batch I/O requests

Send as many I/O requests to the I/O thread as possible, even though it will
still only handle one at a time.  This provides an opportunity to reduce
latency by starting one request before the previous one has been finished in
the driver.

Request handling is somewhat modernized by requesting sg pieces of a request
and handling them separately, finishing off the entire request after all the
pieces are done.

When a request queue stalls, normally because its pipe to the I/O thread is
full, it is put on the restart list.  This list is processed by starting up
the queues on it whenever there is some indication that progress might be
possible again.  Currently, this happens in the driver interrupt routine.
Some requests have been finished, so there is likely to be room in the pipe
again.

This almost doubles throughput when copying data between devices, but made no
noticable difference on anything else I tried.

12 years agouml: convert libc layer to call read and write
Jeff Dike [Sun, 6 May 2007 21:51:35 +0000]
uml: convert libc layer to call read and write

This patch converts calls in the os layer to os_{read,write}_file to calls
directly to libc read() and write() where it is clear that the I/O buffer is
in the kernel.

We can do that here instead of calling os_{read,write}_file_k since we are in
libc code and can call libc directly.

With the change in the calls, error handling needs to be changed to refer to
errno directly rather than the return value of the call.

CATCH_EINTR wrappers were also added where needed.

12 years agouml: start fixing os_read_file and os_write_file
Jeff Dike [Sun, 6 May 2007 21:51:32 +0000]
uml: start fixing os_read_file and os_write_file

This patch starts the removal of a very old, very broken piece of code.  This
stems from the problem of passing a userspace buffer into read() or write() on
the host.  If that buffer had not yet been faulted in, read and write will
return -EFAULT.

To avoid this problem, the solution was to fault the buffer in before the
system call by touching the pages that hold the buffer by doing a copy-user of
a byte to each page.  This is obviously bogus, but it does usually work, in tt
mode, since the kernel and process are in the same address space and userspace
addresses can be accessed directly in the kernel.

In skas mode, where the kernel and process are in separate address spaces, it
is completely bogus because the userspace address, which is invalid in the
kernel, is passed into the system call instead of the corresponding physical
address, which would be valid.  Here, it appears that this code, on every host
read() or write(), tries to fault in a random process page.  This doesn't seem
to cause any correctness problems, but there is a performance impact.  This
patch, and the ones following, result in a 10-15% performance gain on a kernel
build.

This code can't be immediately tossed out because when it is, you can't log
in.  Apparently, there is some code in the console driver which depends on
this somehow.

However, we can start removing it by switching the code which does I/O using
kernel addresses to using plain read() and write().  This patch introduces
os_read_file_k and os_write_file_k for use with kernel buffers and converts
all call locations which use obvious kernel buffers to use them.  These
include I/O using buffers which are local variables which are on the stack or
kmalloc-ed.  Later patches will handle the less obvious cases, followed by a
mass conversion back to the original interface.
