8 years agoScm: Remove unnecessary pid ...

Scm: Remove unnecessary pid & credential references in Unix socket's send and receive path

Patch series 109f6e39..7361c36c back in 2.6.36 added functionality to
allow credentials to work across pid namespaces for packets sent via
UNIX sockets.  However, the atomic reference counts on pid and
credentials caused plenty of cache bouncing when there are numerous
threads of the same pid sharing a UNIX socket.  This patch mitigates the
problem by eliminating extraneous reference counts on pid and
credentials on both send and receive path of UNIX sockets. I found a 2x
improvement in hackbench's threaded case.

On the receive path in unix_dgram_recvmsg, currently there is an
increment of reference count on pid and credentials in scm_set_cred.
Then there are two decrement of the reference counts.  Once in scm_recv
and once when skb_free_datagram call skb->destructor function
unix_destruct_scm.  One pair of increment and decrement of ref count on
pid and credentials can be eliminated from the receive path.  Until we
destroy the skb, we already set a reference when we created the skb on
the send side.

On the send path, there are two increments of ref count on pid and
credentials, once in scm_send and once in unix_scm_to_skb.  Then there
is a decrement of the reference counts in scm_destroy's call to
scm_destroy_cred at the end of unix_dgram_sendmsg functions.   One pair
of increment and decrement of the reference counts can be removed so we
only need to increment the ref counts once.

By incorporating these changes, for hackbench running on a 4 socket
NHM-EX machine with 40 cores, the execution of hackbench on
50 groups of 20 threads sped up by factor of 2.

Hackbench command used for testing:
./hackbench 50 thread 2000

8 years agoProportional Rate Reduction for TCP.
Nandita Dukkipati [Sun, 21 Aug 2011 20:21:57 +0000]
Proportional Rate Reduction for TCP.

This patch implements Proportional Rate Reduction (PRR) for TCP.
PRR is an algorithm that determines TCP's sending rate in fast
recovery. PRR avoids excessive window reductions and aims for
the actual congestion window size at the end of recovery to be as
close as possible to the window determined by the congestion control
algorithm. PRR also improves accuracy of the amount of data sent
during loss recovery.

The patch implements the recommended flavor of PRR called PRR-SSRB
(Proportional rate reduction with slow start reduction bound) and
replaces the existing rate halving algorithm. PRR improves upon the
existing Linux fast recovery under a number of conditions including:
  1) burst losses where the losses implicitly reduce the amount of
outstanding data (pipe) below the ssthresh value selected by the
congestion control algorithm and,
  2) losses near the end of short flows where application runs out of
data to send.

As an example, with the existing rate halving implementation a single
loss event can cause a connection carrying short Web transactions to
go into the slow start mode after the recovery. This is because during
recovery Linux pulls the congestion window down to packets_in_flight+1
on every ACK. A short Web response often runs out of new data to send
and its pipe reduces to zero by the end of recovery when all its packets
are drained from the network. Subsequent HTTP responses using the same
connection will have to slow start to raise cwnd to ssthresh. PRR on
the other hand aims for the cwnd to be as close as possible to ssthresh
by the end of recovery.

A description of PRR and a discussion of its performance can be found at

In commit 9aa3283595451ca093500ff0977b106e1f465586 (ehea/ibm*: Move the
IBM drivers) the IBM_NEW_EMAC* were renames to IBM_EMAC*

The conversion was incomplete so that even if the driver was added to
the .config it wasn't built, but there were no errors).  In this commit
we also update the various defconfigs that use EMAC to use the new
Kconfig symbol, and explicitly add the NET_VENDOR_IBM guard.

We do not explicitly select the Kconfig dependencies, as this would force
EMAC on.  Doing it in the defconfig allows more flexibility.

8 years agobonding:reset backup and inactive flag of slave
Peter Pan(潘卫平) [Mon, 15 Aug 2011 15:57:35 +0000]
bonding:reset backup and inactive flag of slave

Eduard Sinelnikov (eduard.sinelnikov@gmail.com) found that if we change
bonding mode from active backup to round robin, some slaves are still keeping
"backup", and won't transmit packets.

As Jay Vosburgh(fubar@us.ibm.com) pointed out that we can work around that by
removing the bond_is_active_slave() check, because the "backup" flag is only
meaningful for active backup mode.

But if we just simply ignore the bond_is_active_slave() check,
the transmission will work fine, but we can't maintain the correct value of
"backup" flag for each slaves, though it is meaningless for other mode than
active backup.

I'd like to reset "backup" and "inactive" flag in bond_open,
thus we can keep the correct value of them.

As for bond_is_active_slave(), I'd like to prepare another patch to handle it.

V2:
Use C style comment.
Move read_lock(&bond->curr_slave_lock).
Replace restore with reset, for active backup mode, it means "restore",
but for other modes, it means "reset".

Crack open GRE packets in __skb_get_rxhash to compute 4-tuple hash on

__skb_get_rxhash is taken, in particular only when the device does

request and response size.

Ben Hutchings [Mon, 15 Aug 2011 14:07:47 +0000]
ethtool: Correct description of 'max_coalesced_frames' fields

The current descriptions state that these fields specify 'How many
packets to delay ... after a packet ...' which implies that the
hardware should wait for (max_coalesced_frames + 1) completions before
generating an interrupt.  It is also stated that setting both this
field and the corresponding 'coalesce_usecs' field to 0 is invalid.
Together, this implies that the hardware must always be configured
to delay a completion IRQ for at least 1 usec or 1 more completion.

I believe that the addition of 1 is not intended, and David Miller
confirms that the original implementation (in tg3) does not do this.
Clarify the descriptions of these fields to avoid this interpretation.

Julia Lawall [Mon, 8 Aug 2011 06:28:50 +0000]
drivers/net/can/sja1000/plx_pci.c: eliminate double free

In this code, the failure_cleanup label calls the function
plx_pci_del_card, which frees everything in the card->net_dev array.  dev
is placed in this array immediately after allocation, so the two subsequent
jumps to failure_cleanup should not also call free_sja1000dev, but the
second one does.

If plx_pci_check_sja1000 fails, then free_sja1000dev is also called on
dev.  Because dev is already in the card->net_dev array, this implies that
when plx_pci_del_card is later called, it may get freed again.  So that
entry is reset to NULL after the free.

Finally, if there is a problem with one channel, there will be a hole in the
array.  card->channels counts the number of channels that have succeeded,
and does not keep track of the index of the largest element in the array
that is valid.  So the loop in plx_pci_del_card is changed to go up to
PLX_PCI_MAX_CHAN, which is only 2.
