12 years agodentries: Extract common code to remove dentry from lru

dentries: Extract common code to remove dentry from lru

Extract the common code to remove a dentry from the lru into a new function
dentry_lru_remove().

Two call sites used list_del() instead of list_del_init().  AFAIK the
performance of both is the same.  dentry_lru_remove() does a list_del_init().

As a result dentry->d_lru is now always empty when a dentry is freed.

12 years agoEmbed a struct path into struct nameidata instead of nd->{dentry,mnt}
Jan Blunck [Fri, 15 Feb 2008 03:34:32 +0000]
Embed a struct path into struct nameidata instead of nd->{dentry,mnt}

This is the central patch of a cleanup series. In most cases there is no good
reason why someone would want to use a dentry for itself. This series reflects
that fact and embeds a struct path into nameidata.

Together with the other patches of this series
- it enforced the correct order of getting/releasing the reference count on
  <dentry,vfsmount> pairs
- it prepares the VFS for stacking support since it is essential to have a
  struct path in every place where the stack can be traversed
- it reduces the overall code size:

without patch series:
   text    data     bss     dec     hex filename
5321639  858418  715768 6895825  6938d1 vmlinux

with patch series:
   text    data     bss     dec     hex filename
5320026  858418  715768 6894212  693284 vmlinux

This patch:

Switch from nd->{dentry,mnt} to nd->path.{dentry,mnt} everywhere.

with FDPIC ELF objects.  If you build a kernel that supports both FLAT and
FDPIC ELFs on no-mmu, every time you execute an FDPIC ELF, the kernel spits
out this message.  While I understand a lot of newcomers to the no-mmu world
screw up generation of FLAT binaries, this warning is not usable for systems
that support more than just FLAT.

Jesper Nilsson [Fri, 15 Feb 2008 03:31:22 +0000]
cris: import memset.c from newlib: fixes compile error with newer (pre4.3) gcc

Adrian Bunk reported the following compile error with a SVN head GCC:

...
CC arch/cris/arch-v10/lib/memset.o
/home/bunk/linux/kernel-2.6/git/linux-2.6/arch/cris/arch-v10/lib/memset.c: In function 'memset':

/home/bunk/linux/kernel-2.6/git/linux-2.6/arch/cris/arch-v10/lib/memset.c:192: error: lvalue required as increment operand
... etc ...

This is due to the use of the construct:

*((long*)dst)++ = lc;

Which is no longer legal since casts don't return an lvalue.

The solution is to import the implementation from newlib,
which is continually autotested together with GCC mainline,
and uses the construct:

*(long *) dst = lc; dst += 4;

With this change, the generated code actually shrinks 76 bytes
since gcc notices that it can use autoincrement for the move
instruction in CRIS.

   text    data     bss     dec     hex filename
    304       0       0     304     130 memset.old.o
   text    data     bss     dec     hex filename
    228       0       0     228      e4 memset.o

Since this is an import of a file from newlib, I'm not touching
the formatting or correcting any checkpatch errors.

Note also that even if the two files for the CRIS v10 and CRIS v32
are identical at the moment, it might be possible to tweak the
CRIS v32 version. Thus, I'm not yet folding them into the same file,
at least not until we've done some research on it.

12 years agoRDMA/cma: Do not issue MRA if user rejects connection request
Sean Hefty [Wed, 13 Feb 2008 22:33:53 +0000]
RDMA/cma: Do not issue MRA if user rejects connection request

There's an undesirable interaction with issuing MRA requests to
increase connection timeouts and the listen backlog.

When the rdma_cm receives a connection request, it queues an MRA with
the ib_cm.  (The ib_cm will send an MRA if it receives a duplicate
REQ.)  The rdma_cm will then create a new rdma_cm_id and give that to
the user, which in this case is the rdma_user_cm.

If the listen backlog maintained in the rdma_user_cm is full, it
destroys the rdma_cm_id, which in turns destroys the ib_cm_id.  The
ib_cm_id generates a REJ because the state of the ib_cm_id has changed
to MRA sent, versus REQ received.  When the backlog is full, we just
want to drop the REQ so that it is retried later.

Fix this by deferring queuing the MRA until after the user of the
rdma_cm has examined the connection request.

12 years agoslub: Support 4k kmallocs again to compensate for page allocator slowness
Christoph Lameter [Thu, 14 Feb 2008 22:28:09 +0000]
slub: Support 4k kmallocs again to compensate for page allocator slowness

Currently we hand off PAGE_SIZEd kmallocs to the page allocator in the
mistaken belief that the page allocator can handle these allocations
effectively. However, measurements indicate a minimum slowdown by the
factor of 8 (and that is only SMP, NUMA is much worse) vs the slub fastpath
which causes regressions in tbench.

Increase the number of kmalloc caches by one so that we again handle 4k
kmallocs directly from slub. 4k page buffering for the page allocator
will be performed by slub like done by slab.

At some point the page allocator fastpath should be fixed. A lot of the kernel
would benefit from a faster ability to allocate a single page. If that is
done then the 4k allocs may again be forwarded to the page allocator and this
patch could be reverted.

12 years agoslub: Fallback to kmalloc_large for failing higher order allocs
Christoph Lameter [Thu, 14 Feb 2008 22:28:01 +0000]
slub: Fallback to kmalloc_large for failing higher order allocs

Slub already has two ways of allocating an object. One is via its own
logic and the other is via the call to kmalloc_large to hand off object
allocation to the page allocator. kmalloc_large is typically used
for objects >= PAGE_SIZE.

We can use that handoff to avoid failing if a higher order kmalloc slab
allocation cannot be satisfied by the page allocator. If we reach the
out of memory path then simply try a kmalloc_large(). kfree() can
already handle the case of an object that was allocated via the page
allocator and so this will work just fine (apart from object
accounting...).

For any kmalloc slab that already requires higher order allocs (which
makes it impossible to use the page allocator fastpath!)
we just use PAGE_ALLOC_COSTLY_ORDER to get the largest number of
objects in one go from the page allocator slowpath.

On a 4k platform this patch will lead to the following use of higher
order pages for the following kmalloc slabs:

8 ... 1024 order 0
2048 .. 4096 order 3 (4k slab only after the next patch)

We may waste some space if fallback occurs on a 2k slab but we
are always able to fallback to an order 0 alloc.

Currently mlx4_ib_fmr_alloc() calls mlx4_mr_enable() instead of
mlx4_fmr_enable().  The two functions are equivalent at the moment, but
this is not really correct (and the change is needed to fix a bug).

IPoIB: On P_Key change event, reset state properly

In P_Key event handling, if the old P_Key is no longer available, the
driver must call ipoib_ib_dev_stop() -- just as it does when the P_Key
is still available (see procedure __ipoib_ib_dev_flush()).

When a P_Key becomes available, the driver will perform ipoib_open(),
which assumes that the QP is in RESET, the cm_id has been
destroyed/deleted, etc.  If ipoib_ib_dev_stop() is not called as
described above, then these assumptions will be false, and the attempt
to bring the interface up will fail.

12 years agoLinux Kernel Markers: create modpost file
Mathieu Desnoyers [Wed, 13 Feb 2008 23:03:39 +0000]
Linux Kernel Markers: create modpost file

This adds some new magic in the MODPOST phase for CONFIG_MARKERS.  Analogous
to the Module.symvers file, the build will now write a Module.markers file
when CONFIG_MARKERS=y is set.  This file lists the name, defining module, and
format string of each marker, separated by \t characters.  This simple text
file can be used by offline build procedures for instrumentation code,
analogous to how System.map and Module.symvers can be useful to have for
kernels other than the one you are running right now.

The strings are made easy to extract by having the __trace_mark macro define
the name and format together in a single array called __mstrtab_* in the
__markers_strings section.  This is straightforward and reliable as long as
the marker structs are always defined by this macro.  It is an unreasonable
amount of hairy work to extract the string pointers from the __markers section
structs, which entails handling a relocation type for every machine under the
sun.

12 years agoLinux Kernel Markers: support multiple probes
Mathieu Desnoyers [Wed, 13 Feb 2008 23:03:37 +0000]
Linux Kernel Markers: support multiple probes

RCU style multiple probes support for the Linux Kernel Markers.  Common case
(one probe) is still fast and does not require dynamic allocation or a
supplementary pointer dereference on the fast path.

- Move preempt disable from the marker site to the callback.

Since we now have an internal callback, move the preempt disable/enable to the
callback instead of the marker site.

Since the callback change is done asynchronously (passing from a handler that
supports arguments to a handler that does not setup the arguments is no
arguments are passed), we can safely update it even if it is outside the
preempt disable section.

- Move probe arm to probe connection. Now, a connected probe is automatically
  armed.

Remove MARK_MAX_FORMAT_LEN, unused.

This patch modifies the Linux Kernel Markers API : it removes the probe
"arm/disarm" and changes the probe function prototype : it now expects a
va_list * instead of a "...".

If we want to have more than one probe connected to a marker at a given
time (LTTng, or blktrace, ssytemtap) then we need this patch. Without it,
connecting a second probe handler to a marker will fail.

It allow us, for instance, to do interesting combinations :

Do standard tracing with LTTng and, eventually, to compute statistics
with SystemTAP, or to have a special trigger on an event that would call
a systemtap script which would stop flight recorder tracing.

select strikes again. ipwireless selects PPP which in turn tries to select
SLHC, both of which are technically "protected" by an if NETDEVICES
in drivers/net/Kconfig. This leads to .config hilarity, with net suddenly
ending up in the SCSI menu:

#
# SCSI device support
#
# CONFIG_SCSI_DMA is not set
# CONFIG_SCSI_NETLINK is not set
CONFIG_PPP=y
# CONFIG_PHONE is not set

Curiously the SLHC select from PPP doesn't seem to happen, as there's no
CONFIG_SLHC=y (only CONFIG_PPP=y gets set) -- Kconfig bug? Caught with a

12 years agomoduleparam: fix alpha, ia64 and ppc64 compile failures
Ivan Kokshaysky [Wed, 13 Feb 2008 23:03:26 +0000]
moduleparam: fix alpha, ia64 and ppc64 compile failures

On alpha, ia64 and ppc64 only relocations to local data can go into
read-only sections. The vast majority of module parameters use the global
generic param_set_*/param_get_* functions, so the 'const' attribute for
struct kernel_param is not only useless, but it also causes compile
failures due to 'section type conflict' in those rare cases where
param_set/get are local functions.

This fixes http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=8964

12 years agoxtime_lock vs update_process_times

xtime_lock vs update_process_times

Commit d3d74453c34f8fd87674a8cf5b8a327c68f22e99 ("hrtimer: fixup the
HRTIMER_CB_IRQSAFE_NO_SOFTIRQ fallback") broke several archs, and since
only Russell bothered to merge the fix, and Greg to ACK his arch, I'm
sending this for merger.

I have confirmation that the Alpha bit results in a booting kernel.
That leaves: blackfin, frv, sh and sparc untested.

The deadlock in question was found by Russell:

  IRQ handle
    -> timer_tick() - xtime seqlock held for write
      -> update_process_times()
        -> run_local_timers()
          -> hrtimer_run_queues()
            -> hrtimer_get_softirq_time() - tries to get a read lock

Now, Thomas assures me the fix is trivial, only do_timer() needs to be
done under the xtime_lock, and update_process_times() can savely be
removed from under it.

12 years agoacpi: fix acpi_os_read_pci_configuration() misuse of raw_pci_read()
Linus Torvalds [Wed, 13 Feb 2008 17:56:14 +0000]
acpi: fix acpi_os_read_pci_configuration() misuse of raw_pci_read()

The raw_pci_read() interface (as the raw_pci_ops->read() before it)
unconditionally fills in a 32-bit integer return value regardless of the
size of the operation requested.

So claiming to take a "void *" is wrong, as is passing in a pointer to
just a byte variable.

Noticed by pageexec when enabling -fstack-protector (which needs other
patches too to actually work, but that's a separate issue).
