[PATCH] hrtimer: round up relative start time on low-res arches

CONFIG_TIME_LOW_RES is a temporary way for architectures to signal that
they simply return xtime in do_gettimeoffset().  In this corner-case we
want to round up by resolution when starting a relative timer, to avoid
short timeouts.  This will go away with the GTOD framework.

Chen, Kenneth W [Tue, 14 Feb 2006 21:53:10 +0000]
[PATCH] sched: revert "filter affine wakeups"

Revert commit d7102e95b7b9c00277562c29aad421d2d521c5f6:

    [PATCH] sched: filter affine wakeups

Apparently caused more than 10% performance regression for aim7 benchmark.
The setup in use is 16-cpu HP rx8620, 64Gb of memory and 12 MSA1000s with 144
disks.  Each disk is 72Gb with a single ext3 filesystem (courtesy of HP, who
supplied benchmark results).

The problem is, for aim7, the wake-up pattern is random, but it still needs
load balancing action in the wake-up path to achieve best performance.  With
the above commit, lack of load balancing hurts that workload.

However, for workloads like database transaction processing, the requirement
is exactly opposite.  In the wake up path, best performance is achieved with
absolutely zero load balancing.  We simply wake up the process on the CPU that
it was previously run.  Worst performance is obtained when we do load
balancing at wake up.

There isn't an easy way to auto detect the workload characteristics.  Ingo's
earlier patch that detects idle CPU and decide whether to load balance or not
doesn't perform with aim7 either since all CPUs are busy (it causes even
bigger perf.  regression).

Revert commit d7102e95b7b9c00277562c29aad421d2d521c5f6, which causes more
than 10% performance regression with aim7.

Michael S. Tsirkin [Tue, 14 Feb 2006 21:53:08 +0000]
[PATCH] madvise MADV_DONTFORK/MADV_DOFORK

Currently, copy-on-write may change the physical address of a page even if the
user requested that the page is pinned in memory (either by mlock or by
get_user_pages).  This happens if the process forks meanwhile, and the parent
writes to that page.  As a result, the page is orphaned: in case of
get_user_pages, the application will never see any data hardware DMA's into
this page after the COW.  In case of mlock'd memory, the parent is not getting
the realtime/security benefits of mlock.

In particular, this affects the Infiniband modules which do DMA from and into
user pages all the time.

This patch adds madvise options to control whether memory range is inherited
across fork.  Useful e.g.  for when hardware is doing DMA from/into these
pages.  Could also be useful to an application wanting to speed up its forks
by cutting large areas out of consideration.

[PATCH] NLM: Fix the NLM_GRANTED callback checks

If 2 threads attached to the same process are blocking on different locks on
different files (maybe even on different servers) but have the same lock
arguments (i.e.  same offset+length - actually quite common, since most
processes try to lock the entire file) then the first GRANTED call that wakes
one up will also wake the other.

Currently when the NLM_GRANTED callback comes in, lockd walks the list of
blocked locks in search of a match to the lock that the NLM server has
granted.  Although it checks the lock pid, start and end, it fails to check
the filehandle and the server address.

By checking the filehandle and server IP address, we ensure that this only
happens if the locks truly are referencing the same file.

[PATCH] HPET: handle multiple ACPI EXTENDED_IRQ resources

When the _CRS for a single HPET contains multiple EXTENDED_IRQ resources,
we overwrote hdp->hd_nirqs every time we found one.

So the driver worked when all the IRQs were described in a single
EXTENDED_IRQ resource, but failed when multiple resources were used.
(Strictly speaking, I think the latter is actually more correct, but both
styles have been used.)

Someday we should remove all the ACPI stuff from hpet.c and use PNP driver
registration instead.  But currently PNP_MAX_IRQ is 2, and HPETs often have
more IRQs.  Hint, hint, Adam :-)

[PATCH] compound page: default destructor

Somehow I imagined that calling a NULL destructor would free a compound page
rather than oopsing.  No, we must supply a default destructor, __free_pages_ok
using the order noted by prep_compound_page.  hugetlb can still replace this
as before with its own free_huge_page pointer.

The case that needs this is not common: rarely does put_compound_page's
put_page_testzero bring the count down to 0.  But if get_user_pages is applied
to some part of a compound page, without immediate release (e.g.  AIO or
Infiniband), then it's possible for its put_page to come after the containing
vma has been unmapped and the driver done its free_pages.

That's just the kind of case compound pages are supposed to be guarding
against (but Nick points out, nor did PageReserved handle this right).

Hugh Dickins [Tue, 14 Feb 2006 21:52:58 +0000]
[PATCH] compound page: use page[1].lru

If a compound page has its own put_page_testzero destructor (the only current
example is free_huge_page), that is noted in page[1].mapping of the compound
page.  But that's rather a poor place to keep it: functions which call
set_page_dirty_lock after get_user_pages (e.g.  Infiniband's
__ib_umem_release) ought to be checking first, otherwise set_page_dirty is
liable to crash on what's not the address of a struct address_space.

And now I'm about to make that worse: it turns out that every compound page
needs a destructor, so we can no longer rely on hugetlb pages going their own
special way, to avoid further problems of page->mapping reuse.  For example,
not many people know that: on 50% of i386 -Os builds, the first tail page of a
compound page purports to be PageAnon (when its destructor has an odd
address), which surprises page_add_file_rmap.

Keep the compound page destructor in page[1].lru.next instead.  And to free up
the common pairing of mapping and index, also move compound page order from
index to lru.prev.  Slab reuses page->lru too: but if we ever need slab to use
compound pages, it can easily stack its use above this.

(akpm: decoded version of the above: the tail pages of a compound page now
have ->mapping==NULL, so there's no need for the set_page_dirty[_lock]()
caller to check that they're not compund pages before doing the dirty).

[MIPS] More uaccess.h fixes with gcc >= 4.0.1.

From Richard Sandiford <richard@codesourcery.com>:

This patch caused a miscompilation of the restore_gp_regs() block
in restore_sigcontext().  This was in a 32-bit kernel compiled with
GCC CVS head.

restore_gp_regs() copies 64-bit user fields into 32-bit variables,
and in this combination, the new __get_user_asm_ll32() clobbers too
many registers.  It says:

/*
 * Get a long long 64 using 32 bit registers.
 */
{ \
__asm__ __volatile__( \
"1: lw %1, (%3) \n" \
"2: lw %D1, 4(%3) \n" \
" move %0, $0 \n" \
"3: .section .fixup,\"ax\" \n" \
"4: li %0, %4 \n" \
" move %1, $0 \n" \
" move %D1, $0 \n" \
" j 3b \n" \
" .previous \n" \
" .section __ex_table,\"a\" \n" \
" " __UA_ADDR " 1b, 4b \n" \
" " __UA_ADDR " 2b, 4b \n" \
" .previous \n" \
: "=r" (__gu_err), "=&r" (val) \
: "0" (0), "r" (addr), "i" (-EFAULT)); \
}

and this requires val (%1) to be a 64-bit value.  In the case I saw,
gcc was using $3 for the 32-bit val, and wasn't expecting $4 to be
clobbered.

[MIPS] Rewrite get_wchan and its helper functions using kallsyms_lookup.

Implement get_wchan() and frame_info_init() using kallsyms_lookup().
This fixes problem with static sched/lock functions and mfinfo[]
maintenance issue.  If CONFIG_KALLSYMS was disabled, get_wchan() just
returns thread_saved_pc() value.

That commit reorganized tests for the userspace stack walking moving all

Herbert Xu [Tue, 14 Feb 2006 00:01:27 +0000]
[IPSEC]: Fix strange IPsec freeze.

Problem discovered and initial patch by Olaf Kirch:

there's a problem with IPsec that has been bugging some of our users
for the last couple of kernel revs. Every now and then, IPsec will
freeze the machine completely. This is with openswan user land,
and with kernels up to and including 2.6.16-rc2.

I managed to debug this a little, and what happens is that we end
up looping in xfrm_lookup, and never get out. With a bit of debug
printks added, I can this happening:

ip_route_output_flow calls xfrm_lookup

xfrm_find_bundle returns NULL (apparently we're in the
middle of negotiating a new SA or something)

We therefore call xfrm_tmpl_resolve. This returns EAGAIN
We go to sleep, waiting for a policy update.
Then we loop back to the top

Apparently, the dst_orig that was passed into xfrm_lookup
has been dropped from the routing table (obsolete=2)
This leads to the endless loop, because we now create
a new bundle, check the new bundle and find it's stale
(stale_bundle -> xfrm_bundle_ok -> dst_check() return 0)

People have been testing with the patch below, which seems to fix the
problem partially. They still see connection hangs however (things
only clear up when they start a new ping or new ssh). So the patch
is obvsiouly not sufficient, and something else seems to go wrong.

I'm grateful for any hints you may have...

I suggest that we simply bail out always.  If the dst decides to die
on us later on, the packet will be dropped anyway.  So there is no
great urgency to retry here.  Once we have the proper resolution
queueing, we can then do the retry again.

[Bluetooth] Fix NULL pointer dereferences of the HCI socket

This patch fixes the two NULL pointer dereferences found by the sfuzz
tool from Ilja van Sprundel. The first one was a call of getsockname()
for an unbound socket and the second was calling accept() while this
operation isn't implemented for the HCI socket interface.

[Bluetooth] Reduce L2CAP MTU for RFCOMM connections

This patch reduces the default L2CAP MTU for all RFCOMM connections
from 1024 to 1013 to improve the interoperability with some broken
RFCOMM implementations. To make this more flexible the L2CAP MTU
becomes also a module parameter and so it can changed at runtime.

[PATCH] x86_64: GART DMA merging fix

Don't touch the non DMA members in the sg list in dma_map_sg in the IOMMU

Some drivers (in particular ST) ran into problems because they reused the sg
lists after passing them to pci_map_sg().  The merging procedure in the K8
GART IOMMU corrupted the state.  This patch changes it to only touch the dma*
entries during merging, but not the other fields.  Approach suggested by Dave
Miller.

14 years ago[PATCH] arch/x86_64/kernel/traps.c PTRACE_SINGLESTEP oops
John Blackwood [Sun, 12 Feb 2006 22:34:58 +0000]
[PATCH] arch/x86_64/kernel/traps.c PTRACE_SINGLESTEP oops

We found a problem with x86_64 kernels with preemption enabled, where
having multiple tasks doing ptrace singlesteps around the same time will
cause the system to 'oops'.  The problem seems that a task can get
preempted out of the do_debug() processing while it is running on the
DEBUG_STACK stack.  If another task on that same cpu then enters do_debug()
and uses the same per-cpu DEBUG_STACK stack, the previous preempted tasks's
stack contents can be corrupted, and the system will oops when the
preempted task is context switched back in again.

The typical oops looks like the following:

This patch disables preemptions for the task upon entry to do_debug(), before
interrupts are reenabled, and then disables preemption before exiting
do_debug(), after disabling interrupts.  I've noticed that the task can be
preempted either at the end of an interrupt, or on the call to
force_sig_info() on the spin_unlock_irqrestore() processing.  It might be
