[PATCH] IPC namespace core

This patch set allows to unshare IPCs and have a private set of IPC objects
(sem, shm, msg) inside namespace.  Basically, it is another building block of
containers functionality.

This patch implements core IPC namespace changes:
- ipc_namespace structure
- new config option CONFIG_IPC_NS
- adds CLONE_NEWIPC flag
- unshare support

Serge Hallyn [Mon, 2 Oct 2006 09:18:18 +0000]
[PATCH] uts: copy nsproxy only when needed

The nsproxy was being copied in unshare() when anything was being unshared,
even if it was something not referenced from nsproxy.  This should end up
in some cases with far more memory usage than necessary.

[PATCH] namespaces: utsname: implement utsname namespaces

This patch defines the uts namespace and some manipulators.
Adds the uts namespace to task_struct, and initializes a
system-wide init namespace.

It leaves a #define for system_utsname so sysctl will compile.
This define will be removed in a separate patch.

[PATCH] namespaces: utsname: use init_utsname when appropriate

In some places, particularly drivers and __init code, the init utsns is the
appropriate one to use.  This patch replaces those with a the init_utsname
helper.

Changes: Removed several uses of init_utsname().  Hope I picked all the
right ones in net/ipv4/ipconfig.c.  These are now changed to
utsname() (the per-process namespace utsname) in the previous
patch (2/7)

the (futur) pid namespace which is required to be valid in exit_notify().

[PATCH] namespaces: add nsproxy

This patch adds a nsproxy structure to the task struct.  Later patches will
move the fs namespace pointer into this structure, and introduce a new utsname
namespace into the nsproxy.

The vserver and openvz functionality, then, would be implemented in large part
by virtualizing/isolating more and more resources into namespaces, each
contained in the nsproxy.

[PATCH] knfsd: make rpc threads pools numa aware

Actually implement multiple pools.  On NUMA machines, allocate a svc_pool per
NUMA node; on SMP a svc_pool per CPU; otherwise a single global pool.  Enqueue
sockets on the svc_pool corresponding to the CPU on which the socket bh is run
(i.e.  the NIC interrupt CPU).  Threads have their cpu mask set to limit them
to the CPUs in the svc_pool that owns them.

This is the patch that allows an Altix to scale NFS traffic linearly
beyond 4 CPUs and 4 NICs.

Incorporates changes and feedback from Neil Brown, Trond Myklebust, and
Christoph Hellwig.

[PATCH] knfsd: add svc_set_num_threads

Currently knfsd keeps its own list of all nfsd threads in nfssvc.c; add a new
way of managing the list of all threads in a svc_serv.  Add
svc_create_pooled() to allow creation of a svc_serv whose threads are managed
by the sunrpc code.  Add svc_set_num_threads() to manage the number of threads
in a service, either per-pool or globally across the service.

[PATCH] knfsd: split svc_serv into pools

Split out the list of idle threads and pending sockets from svc_serv into a
new svc_pool structure, and allocate a fixed number (in this patch, 1) of
pools per svc_serv.  The new structure contains a lock which takes over
several of the duties of svc_serv->sv_lock, which is now relegated to
protecting only sv_tempsocks, sv_permsocks, and sv_tmpcnt in svc_serv.

The point is to move the hottest fields out of svc_serv and into svc_pool,
allowing a following patch to arrange for a svc_pool per NUMA node or per CPU.
 This is a major step towards making the NFS server NUMA-friendly.

Greg Banks [Mon, 2 Oct 2006 09:17:54 +0000]
[PATCH] knfsd: move tempsock aging to a timer

Following are 11 patches from Greg Banks which combine to make knfsd more
Numa-aware.  They reduce hitting on 'global' data structures, and create some
data-structures that can be node-local.

knfsd threads are bound to a particular node, and the thread to handle a new
request is chosen from the threads that are attach to the node that received
the interrupt.

The distribution of threads across nodes can be controlled by a new file in
the 'nfsd' filesystem, though the default approach of an even spread is
probably fine for most sites.

Some (old) numbers that show the efficacy of these patches: N == number of
NICs == number of CPUs == nmber of clients.  Number of NUMA nodes == N/2

N Throughput, MiB/s CPU usage, % (max=N*100)
Before After Before After
--- ------ ---- ----- -----
4 312 435 350 228
6 500 656 501 418
8 562 804 690 589

This patch:

Move the aging of RPC/TCP connection sockets from the main svc_recv() loop to
a timer which uses a mark-and-sweep algorithm every 6 minutes.  This reduces
the amount of work that needs to be done in the main RPC loop and the length
of time we need to hold the (effectively global) svc_serv->sv_lock.

[PATCH] knfsd: Correctly handle error condition from lockd_up

If lockd_up fails - what should we expect?  Do we have to later call
lockd_down?

Well the nfs client thinks "no", the nfs server thinks "yes".  lockd thinks
"yes".

The only answer that really makes sense is "no" !!

So:
  Make lockd_up only increment  nlmsvc_users on success.
  Make nfsd handle errors from lockd_up properly.
  Make sure lockd_up(0) never fails when lockd is running
    so that the 'reclaimer' call to lockd_up doesn't need to
    be error checked.

NeilBrown [Mon, 2 Oct 2006 09:17:46 +0000]
[PATCH] knfsd: remove nfsd_versbits as intermediate storage for desired versions

We have an array 'nfsd_version' which lists the available versions of nfsd,
and 'nfsd_versions' (poor choice there :-() which lists the currently active
versions.

Then we have a bitmap - nfsd_versbits which says which versions are wanted.
The bits in this bitset cause content to be copied from nfsd_version to
nfsd_versions when nfsd starts.

This patch removes nfsd_versbits and moves information directly from
nfsd_version to nfsd_versions when requests for version changes arrive.

Note that this doesn't make it possible to change versions while the server is
running.  This is because serv->sv_xdrsize is calculated when a service is
created, and used when threads are created, and xdrsize depends on the active
versions.

13 years ago[PATCH] knfsd: be more selective in which sockets lockd listens on
NeilBrown [Mon, 2 Oct 2006 09:17:45 +0000]
[PATCH] knfsd: be more selective in which sockets lockd listens on

Currently lockd listens on UDP always, and TCP if CONFIG_NFSD_TCP is set.

However as lockd performs services of the client as well, this is a problem.
If CONFIG_NfSD_TCP is not set, and a tcp mount is used, the server will not be
able to call back to lockd.

So:
 - add an option to lockd_up saying which protocol is needed
 - Always open sockets for which an explicit port was given, otherwise
   only open a socket of the type required
 - Change nfsd to do one lockd_up per socket rather than one per thread.

This
 - removes the dependancy on CONFIG_NFSD_TCP
 - means that lockd may open sockets other than at startup
 - means that lockd will *not* listen on UDP if the only
   mounts are TCP mount (and nfsd hasn't started).

The latter is the only one that concerns me at all - I don't know if this
might be a problem with some servers.

Ananth N Mavinakayanahalli [Mon, 2 Oct 2006 09:17:30 +0000]
[PATCH] Kprobes: Make kprobe modules more portable

In an effort to make kprobe modules more portable, here is a patch that:

o Introduces the "symbol_name" field to struct kprobe.
  The symbol->address resolution now happens in the kernel in an
  architecture agnostic manner. 64-bit powerpc users no longer have
  to specify the ".symbols"
o Introduces the "offset" field to struct kprobe to allow a user to
  specify an offset into a symbol.
o The legacy mechanism of specifying the kprobe.addr is still supported.
  However, if both the kprobe.addr and kprobe.symbol_name are specified,
  probe registration fails with an -EINVAL.
o The symbol resolution code uses kallsyms_lookup_name(). So
  CONFIG_KPROBES now depends on CONFIG_KALLSYMS
o Apparantly kprobe modules were the only legitimate out-of-tree user of
  the kallsyms_lookup_name() EXPORT. Now that the symbol resolution
  happens in-kernel, remove the EXPORT as suggested by Christoph Hellwig
o Modify tcp_probe.c that uses the kprobe interface so as to make it
  work on multiple platforms (in its earlier form, the code wouldn't
  work, say, on powerpc)

Someone I think it was Oleg Nesterov pointed out that this construct was
missing locking, when I introduced struct pid.  After taking time to review
the locking construct already present I figured out which lock needs to be

read or the write lock.

[PATCH] const struct tty_operations

As part of an SMP cleanliness pass over UML, I consted a bunch of
structures in order to not have to document their locking.  One of these
structures was a struct tty_operations.  In order to const it in UML
without introducing compiler complaints, the declaration of
tty_set_operations needs to be changed, and then all of its callers need to
be fixed.

This patch declares all struct tty_operations in the tree as const.  In all
cases, they are static and used only as input to tty_set_operations.  As an
extra check, I ran an i386 allyesconfig build which produced no extra
warnings.

53 drivers are affected.  I checked the history of a bunch of them, and in
most cases, there have been only a handful of maintenance changes in the
last six months.  serial_core.c was the busiest one that I looked at.

[PATCH] vt: Make vt_pid a struct pid (making it pid wrap around safe).

I took a good hard look at the locking and it appears the locking on vt_pid
is the console semaphore.  Every modified path is called under the console
semaphore except reset_vc when it is called from fn_SAK or do_SAK both of
which appear to be in interrupt context.  In addition I need to be careful
because in the presence of an oops the console_sem may be arbitrarily
dropped.

Which leads me to conclude the current locking is inadequate for my needs.

Given the weird cases we could hit because of oops printing instead of
introducing an extra spin lock to protect the data and keep the pid to
signal and the signal to send in sync, I have opted to use xchg on just the
struct pid * pointer instead.

Due to console_sem we will stay in sync between vt_pid and vt_mode except
for a small window during a SAK, or oops handling.  SAK handling should
kill any user space process that care, and oops handling we are broken
anyway.  Besides the worst that can happen is that I try to send the wrong
signal.

Eric W. Biederman [Mon, 2 Oct 2006 09:17:10 +0000]
[PATCH] pid: implement signal functions that take a struct pid *

Currently the signal functions all either take a task or a pid_t argument.
This patch implements variants that take a struct pid *.  After all of the
users have been update it is my intention to remove the variants that take a
pid_t as using pid_t can be more work (an extra hash table lookup) and
difficult to get right in the presence of multiple pid namespaces.

There are two kinds of functions introduced in this patch.  The are the
general use functions kill_pgrp and kill_pid which take a priv argument that
is ultimately used to create the appropriate siginfo information, Then there
are _kill_pgrp_info, kill_pgrp_info, kill_pid_info the internal implementation
helpers that take an explicit siginfo.

[PATCH] pid: add do_each_pid_task

To avoid pid rollover confusion the kernel needs to work with struct pid *
instead of pid_t.  Currently there is not an iterator that walks through all
of the tasks of a given pid type starting with a struct pid.  This prevents us
replacing some pid_t instances with struct pid.  So this patch adds
do_each_pid_task which walks through the set of task for a given pid type
starting with a struct pid.

Eric W. Biederman [Mon, 2 Oct 2006 09:17:09 +0000]
[PATCH] pid: implement access helpers for a tacks various process groups

In the last round of cleaning up the pid hash table a more general struct pid
was introduced, that can be referenced counted.

With the more general struct pid most if not all places where we store a pid_t
we can now store a struct pid * and remove the need for a hash table lookup,
and avoid any possible problems with pid roll over.

Looking forward to the pid namespaces struct pid * gives us an absolute form a
pid so we can compare and use them without caring which pid namespace we are
in.

This patchset introduces the infrastructure needed to use struct pid instead
of pid_t, and then it goes on to convert two different kernel users that
currently store a pid_t value.

There are a lot more places to go but this is enough to get the basic idea.

Before we can merge a pid namespace patch all of the kernel pid_t users need
to be examined.  Those that deal with user space processes need to be
converted to using a struct pid *.  Those that deal with kernel processes need
to converted to using the kthread api.  A rare few that only use their current
processes pid values get to be left alone.

This patch:

task_session returns the struct pid of a tasks session.
task_pgrp    returns the struct pid of a tasks process group.
task_tgid    returns the struct pid of a tasks thread group.
task_pid     returns the struct pid of a tasks process id.

These can be used to avoid unnecessary hash table lookups, and to implement
safe pid comparisions in the face of a pid namespace.

[PATCH] proc: reorder the functions in base.c

There were enough changes in my last round of cleaning up proc I had to break

switch statements that had to be kept in sync with everything else.  Being
fully table driver takes us 90% of the way of being able to register new
process specific attributes in proc.

This patch:

Group the functions by what they implement instead of by type of operation.
As it existed base.c was quickly approaching the point where it could not be
followed.

declartions are implemented in this patch.

Eric W. Biederman [Mon, 2 Oct 2006 09:17:04 +0000]
[PATCH] proc: readdir race fix (take 3)

The problem: An opendir, readdir, closedir sequence can fail to report
process ids that are continually in use throughout the sequence of system
calls.  For this race to trigger the process that proc_pid_readdir stops at
must exit before readdir is called again.

This can cause ps to fail to report processes, and it is in violation of
posix guarantees and normal application expectations with respect to
readdir.

Currently there is no way to work around this problem in user space short
of providing a gargantuan buffer to user space so the directory read all
happens in on system call.

This patch implements the normal directory semantics for proc, that
guarantee that a directory entry that is neither created nor destroyed
while reading the directory entry will be returned.  For directory that are
either created or destroyed during the readdir you may or may not see them.
 Furthermore you may seek to a directory offset you have previously seen.

These are the guarantee that ext[23] provides and that posix requires, and
more importantly that user space expects.  Plus it is a simple semantic to
implement reliable service.  It is just a matter of calling readdir a
second time if you are wondering if something new has show up.

These better semantics are implemented by scanning through the pids in
numerical order and by making the file offset a pid plus a fixed offset.

The pid scan happens on the pid bitmap, which when you look at it is
remarkably efficient for a brute force algorithm.  Given that a typical
cache line is 64 bytes and thus covers space for 64*8 == 200 pids.  There
are only 40 cache lines for the entire 32K pid space.  A typical system
will have 100 pids or more so this is actually fewer cache lines we have to
look at to scan a linked list, and the worst case of having to scan the
entire pid bitmap is pretty reasonable.

If we need something more efficient we can go to a more efficient data
structure for indexing the pids, but for now what we have should be
sufficient.

In addition this takes no additional locks and is actually less code than
what we are doing now.

Also another very subtle bug in this area has been fixed.  It is possible
to catch a task in the middle of de_thread where a thread is assuming the
thread of it's thread group leader.  This patch carefully handles that case
so if we hit it we don't fail to return the pid, that is undergoing the
de_thread dance.

Thanks to KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki <kamezawa.hiroyu@jp.fujitsu.com> for

Create a new PTE function which combines clearing a kernel PTE with the

hypercall or paravirt-op.  More subtly, reverse the order of the flush for
kmap_atomic.  Instead of flushing on establishing a mapping, flush on clearing
a mapping.  This eliminates the possibility of leaving stale kmap entries
which may still have valid TLB mappings.  This is required for direct mode
hypervisors, which need to reprotect all mappings of a given page when
changing the page type from a normal page to a protected page (such as a page
table or descriptor table page).  But it also provides some nicer semantics
for real hardware, by providing extra debug-proofing against using stale
mappings, as well as ensuring that no stale mappings exist when changing the
cacheability attributes of a page, which could lead to cache conflicts when
two different types of mappings exist for the same page.

[PATCH] paravirt: combine flush accessed dirty.patch

Remove ptep_test_and_clear_{dirty|young} from i386, and instead use the
dominating functions, ptep_clear_flush_{dirty|young}.  This allows the TLB
page flush to be contained in the same macro, and allows for an eager
optimization - if reading the PTE initially returned dirty/accessed, we can
assume the fact that no subsequent update to the PTE which cleared accessed /
dirty has occurred, as the only way A/D bits can change without holding the
page table lock is if a remote processor clears them.  This eliminates an
extra branch which came from the generic version of the code, as we know that
no other CPU could have cleared the A/D bit, so the flush will always be
needed.

We still export these two defines, even though we do not actually define
the macros in the i386 code:

 #define __HAVE_ARCH_PTEP_TEST_AND_CLEAR_YOUNG
 #define __HAVE_ARCH_PTEP_TEST_AND_CLEAR_DIRTY

The reason for this is that the only use of these functions is within the
generic clear_flush functions, and we want a strong guarantee that there
are no other users of these functions, so we want to prevent the generic
code from defining them for us.

[PATCH] paravirt: lazy mmu mode hooks.patch

Implement lazy MMU update hooks which are SMP safe for both direct and shadow
page tables.  The idea is that PTE updates and page invalidations while in
lazy mode can be batched into a single hypercall.  We use this in VMI for
shadow page table synchronization, and it is a win.  It also can be used by
PPC and for direct page tables on Xen.

For SMP, the enter / leave must happen under protection of the page table
locks for page tables which are being modified.  This is because otherwise,
you end up with stale state in the batched hypercall, which other CPUs can
race ahead of.  Doing this under the protection of the locks guarantees the
synchronization is correct, and also means that spurious faults which are
generated during this window by remote CPUs are properly handled, as the page
fault handler must re-check the PTE under protection of the same lock.

[PATCH] paravirt: pte clear not present

Change pte_clear_full to a more appropriately named pte_clear_not_present,
allowing optimizations when not-present mapping changes need not be reflected
in the hardware TLB for protected page table modes.  There is also another
case that can use it in the fremap code.

We don't want to read PTEs directly like this after they have been modified,
as a lazy MMU implementation of direct page tables may not have written the

Andrew Morton [Sun, 1 Oct 2006 06:29:29 +0000]
[PATCH] invalidate_inode_pages2(): ignore page refcounts

The recent fix to invalidate_inode_pages() (git commit 016eb4a) managed to
unfix invalidate_inode_pages2().

The problem is that various bits of code in the kernel can take transient refs
on pages: the page scanner will do this when inspecting a batch of pages, and
the lru_cache_add() batching pagevecs also hold a ref.

Net result is transient failures in invalidate_inode_pages2().  This affects
NFS directory invalidation (observed) and presumably also block-backed
direct-io (not yet reported).

Fix it by reverting invalidate_inode_pages2() back to the old version which
ignores the page refcounts.

We may come up with something more clever later, but for now we need a 2.6.18
fix for NFS.

13 years ago[PATCH] Support piping into commands in /proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern
Andi Kleen [Sun, 1 Oct 2006 06:29:28 +0000]
[PATCH] Support piping into commands in /proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern

Using the infrastructure created in previous patches implement support to
pipe core dumps into programs.

This is done by overloading the existing core_pattern sysctl
with a new syntax:

|program

When the first character of the pattern is a '|' the kernel will instead
threat the rest of the pattern as a command to run.  The core dump will be
written to the standard input of that program instead of to a file.

This is useful for having automatic core dump analysis without filling up
disks.  The program can do some simple analysis and save only a summary of
the core dump.

The core dump proces will run with the privileges and in the name space of
the process that caused the core dump.

I also increased the core pattern size to 128 bytes so that longer command
lines fit.

Most of the changes comes from allowing core dumps without seeks.  They are
fairly straight forward though.

One small incompatibility is that if someone had a core pattern previously
that started with '|' they will get suddenly new behaviour.  I think that's
unlikely to be a real problem though.

Additional background:

> Very nice, do you happen to have a program that can accept this kind of
> input for crash dumps?  I'm guessing that the embedded people will

I had a cheesy demo/prototype.  Basically it wrote the dump to a file again,
ran gdb on it to get a backtrace and wrote the summary to a shared directory.
Then there was a simple CGI script to generate a "top 10" crashes HTML
listing.

Unfortunately this still had the disadvantage to needing full disk space for a
dump except for deleting it afterwards (in fact it was worse because over the
pipe holes didn't work so if you have a holey address map it would require
more space).

Fortunately gdb seems to be happy to handle /proc/pid/fd/xxx input pipes as
cores (at least it worked with zsh's =(cat core) syntax), so it would be
likely possible to do it without temporary space with a simple wrapper that
calls it in the right way.  I ran out of time before doing that though.

The demo prototype scripts weren't very good.  If there is really interest I
can dig them out (they are currently on a laptop disk on the desk with the
laptop itself being in service), but I would recommend to rewrite them for any
serious application of this and fix the disk space problem.

Also to be really useful it should probably find a way to automatically fetch
the debuginfos (I cheated and just installed them in advance).  If nobody else
does it I can probably do the rewrite myself again at some point.

My hope at some point was that desktops would support it in their builtin
crash reporters, but at least the KDE people I talked too seemed to be happy
with their user space only solution.

Alan sayeth:

  I don't believe that piping as such as neccessarily the right model, but
  the ability to intercept and processes core dumps from user space is asked
  for by many enterprise users as well.  They want to know about, capture,
  analyse and process core dumps, often centrally and in automated form.

[PATCH] Some cleanup in the pipe code

Split the big and hard to read do_pipe function into smaller pieces.

This creates new create_write_pipe/free_write_pipe/create_read_pipe
functions.  These functions are made global so that they can be used by
other parts of the kernel.

The resulting code is more generic and easier to read and has cleaner error
handling and less gotos.
