6 years agoipc: introduce lockless pre_down ipcctl
Davidlohr Bueso [Wed, 1 May 2013 02:15:24 +0000]
ipc: introduce lockless pre_down ipcctl

Various forms of ipc use ipcctl_pre_down() to retrieve an ipc object and
check permissions, mostly for IPC_RMID and IPC_SET commands.

Introduce ipcctl_pre_down_nolock(), a lockless version of this function.
The locking version is retained, yet modified to call the nolock version
without affecting its semantics, thus transparent to all ipc callers.

6 years agoipc: introduce obtaining a lockless ipc object
Davidlohr Bueso [Wed, 1 May 2013 02:15:19 +0000]
ipc: introduce obtaining a lockless ipc object

Through ipc_lock() and therefore ipc_lock_check() we currently return the
locked ipc object.  This is not necessary for all situations and can,
therefore, cause unnecessary ipc lock contention.

Introduce analogous ipc_obtain_object() and ipc_obtain_object_check()
functions that only lookup and return the ipc object.

Both these functions must be called within the RCU read critical section.

6 years agoipc: remove bogus lock comment for ipc_checkid
Davidlohr Bueso [Wed, 1 May 2013 02:15:14 +0000]
ipc: remove bogus lock comment for ipc_checkid

This series makes the sysv semaphore code more scalable, by reducing the
time the semaphore lock is held, and making the locking more scalable for
semaphore arrays with multiple semaphores.

The first four patches were written by Davidlohr Buesso, and reduce the
hold time of the semaphore lock.

The last three patches change the sysv semaphore code locking to be more
fine grained, providing a performance boost when multiple semaphores in a
semaphore array are being manipulated simultaneously.

On a 24 CPU system, performance numbers with the semop-multi
test with N threads and N semaphores, look like this:

This patch:

There is no reason to be holding the ipc lock while reading ipcp->seq,
hence remove misleading comment.

Also simplify the return value for the function.

6 years agokernel/sys.c: make prctl(PR_SET_MM) generally available
Amnon Shiloh [Tue, 30 Apr 2013 22:28:48 +0000]
kernel/sys.c: make prctl(PR_SET_MM) generally available

The purpose of this patch is to allow privileged processes to set
their own per-memory memory-region fields:

      start_code, end_code, start_data, end_data, start_brk, brk,
      start_stack, arg_start, arg_end, env_start, env_end.

This functionality is needed by any application or package that needs to
reconstruct Linux processes, that is, to start them in any way other than
by means of an "execve()" from an executable file.  This includes:

1. Restoring processes from a checkpoint-file (by all potential
   user-level checkpointing packages, not only CRIU's).
2. Restarting processes on another node after process migration.
3. Starting duplicated copies of a running process (for reliability
   and high-availablity).
4. Starting a process from an executable format that is not supported
   by Linux, thus requiring a "manual execve" by a user-level utility.
5. Similarly, starting a process from a networked and/or crypted
   executable that, for confidentiality, licensing or other reasons,
   may not be written to the local file-systems.

The code that does that was already included in the Linux kernel by the
CRIU group, in the form of "prctl(PR_SET_MM)", but prior to this was
enclosed within their private "#ifdef CONFIG_CHECKPOINT_RESTORE", which is
normally disabled.  The patch removes those ifdefs.

Mike Frysinger [Tue, 30 Apr 2013 22:28:45 +0000]
init/Kconfig: re-order CONFIG_EXPERT options to fix menuconfig display

The kconfig language requires that dependent options all follow the
menuconfig symbol in order to be collapsed below it.  Recently some hidden
options were added below the EXPERT menuconfig, but did not depend on
EXPERT (because hidden options can't).  This broke the display.  So
re-order all these options, and while we're here stick the PCI quirks
under the EXPERT menu (since it isn't sitting with any related options).

Before this commit, we get:
[*] Configure standard kernel features (expert users)  --->
[ ] Sysctl syscall support
[*] Load all symbols for debugging/ksymoops
...
[ ] Embedded system

Now we get the older (and correct) behavior:
[*] Configure standard kernel features (expert users)  --->
[ ] Embedded system
And if you go into the expert menu you get the expert options:

[*] Load all symbols for debugging/ksymoops

Kconfig: consolidate CONFIG_DEBUG_STRICT_USER_COPY_CHECKS

The help text for this config is duplicated across the x86, parisc, and
s390 Kconfig.debug files.  Arnd Bergman noted that the help text was
slightly misleading and should be fixed to state that enabling this
option isn't a problem when using pre 4.4 gcc.

To simplify the rewording, consolidate the text into lib/Kconfig.debug
and modify it there to be more explicit about when you should say N to
this config.

Also, make the text a bit more generic by stating that this option
enables compile time checks so we can cover architectures which emit
warnings vs.  ones which emit errors.  The details of how an
architecture decided to implement the checks isn't as important as the
concept of compile time checking of copy_from_user() calls.

While we're doing this, remove all the copy_from_user_overflow() code
that's duplicated many times and place it into lib/ so that any
architecture supporting this option can get the function for free.

find_next_offset() searches for an available "cleaned bit" in the

it returns a value equals to BITS_PER_PAGE.

For example, suppose find_next_offset didn't find any available bit, so
there's no purpose to call mk_pid (Wasteful Cpu Cycles).

Therefore, I found it could be better to call mk_pid after the checking
(offset < BITS_PER_PAGE) returned sucessfully! Another point: If (offset
< BITS_PER_PAGE) results in a "failure", then mk_pid would be called
again afterwards.

6 years agoexec: do not abuse ->cred_guard_mutex in threadgroup_lock()
Oleg Nesterov [Tue, 30 Apr 2013 22:28:20 +0000]
exec: do not abuse ->cred_guard_mutex in threadgroup_lock()

threadgroup_lock() takes signal->cred_guard_mutex to ensure that
thread_group_leader() is stable.  This doesn't look nice, the scope of
this lock in do_execve() is huge.

And as Dave pointed out this can lead to deadlock, we have the
following dependencies:

do_execve: cred_guard_mutex -> i_mutex
cgroup_mount: i_mutex -> cgroup_mutex
attach_task_by_pid: cgroup_mutex -> cred_guard_mutex

Change de_thread() to take threadgroup_change_begin() around the
switch-the-leader code and change threadgroup_lock() to avoid
->cred_guard_mutex.

Note that de_thread() can't sleep with ->group_rwsem held, this can
obviously deadlock with the exiting leader if the writer is active, so it
does threadgroup_change_end() before schedule().

set_task_comm: kill the pointless memset() + wmb()

set_task_comm() does memset() + wmb() before strlcpy().  This buys
nothing and to add to the confusion, the comment is wrong.

- We do not need memset() to be "safe from non-terminating string
  reads", the final char is always zero and we never change it.

- wmb() is paired with nothing, it cannot prevent from printing

6 years agofs, proc: truncate /proc/pid/comm writes to first TASK_COMM_LEN bytes
David Rientjes [Tue, 30 Apr 2013 22:28:18 +0000]
fs, proc: truncate /proc/pid/comm writes to first TASK_COMM_LEN bytes

Currently, a write to a procfs file will return the number of bytes
successfully written.  If the actual string is longer than this, the
remainder of the string will not be be written and userspace will
complete the operation by issuing additional write()s.

Hence

$ echo -n "abcdefghijklmnopqrs" > /proc/self/comm

results in

$ cat /proc/$$/comm
pqrs

since the final four bytes were written with a second write() since
TASK_COMM_LEN == 16.  This is obviously an undesired result and not
equivalent to prctl(PR_SET_NAME).  The implementation should not need to
know the definition of TASK_COMM_LEN.

This patch truncates the string to the first TASK_COMM_LEN bytes and
returns the bytes written as the length of the string written so the
second write() is suppressed.

6 years agocoredump: introduce dump_interrupted()
Oleg Nesterov [Tue, 30 Apr 2013 22:28:15 +0000]
coredump: introduce dump_interrupted()

By discussion with Mandeep.

Change dump_write(), dump_seek() and do_coredump() to check
signal_pending() and abort if it is true.  dump_seek() does this only
before f_op->llseek(), otherwise it relies on dump_write().

We need this change to ensure that the coredump won't delay suspend, and
to ensure it reacts to SIGKILL "quickly enough", a core dump can take a
lot of time.  In particular this can help oom-killer.

We add the new trivial helper, dump_interrupted() to add the comments and
to simplify the potential freezer changes.  Perhaps it will have more
callers.

Ideally it should do try_to_freeze() but then we need the unpleasant
changes in dump_write() and wait_for_dump_helpers().  It is not trivial to
change dump_write() to restart if f_op->write() fails because of
freezing().  We need to handle the short writes, we need to clear
TIF_SIGPENDING (and we can't rely on recalc_sigpending() unless we change
it to check PF_DUMPCORE).  And if the buggy f_op->write() sets
TIF_SIGPENDING we can not distinguish this case from the race with
freeze_task() + __thaw_task().

So we simply accept the fact that the freezer can truncate a core-dump but
at least you can reliably suspend.  Hopefully we can tolerate this
unlikely case and the necessary complications doesn't worth a trouble.
But if we decide to make the coredumping freezable later we can do this on
top of this change.

Oleg Nesterov [Tue, 30 Apr 2013 22:28:13 +0000]
coredump: sanitize the setting of signal->group_exit_code

Now that the coredumping process can be SIGKILL'ed, the setting of
->group_exit_code in do_coredump() can race with complete_signal() and
SIGKILL or 0x80 can be "lost", or wait(status) can report status ==
SIGKILL | 0x80.

But the main problem is that it is not clear to me what should we do if
binfmt->core_dump() succeeds but SIGKILL was sent, that is why this patch
comes as a separate change.

This patch adds 0x80 if ->core_dump() succeeds and the process was not
killed.  But perhaps we can (should?) re-set ->group_exit_code changed by
SIGKILL back to "siginfo->si_signo |= 0x80" in case when core_dumped == T.

6 years agocoredump: ensure that SIGKILL always kills the dumping thread
Oleg Nesterov [Tue, 30 Apr 2013 22:28:12 +0000]
coredump: ensure that SIGKILL always kills the dumping thread

prepare_signal() blesses SIGKILL sent to the dumping process but this
signal can be "lost" anyway.  The problems is, complete_signal() sees
SIGNAL_GROUP_EXIT and skips the "kill them all" logic.  And even if the
dumping process is single-threaded (so the target is always "correct"),
the group-wide SIGKILL is not recorded in task->pending and thus
__fatal_signal_pending() won't be true.  A multi-threaded case has even
more problems.

And even ignoring all technical details, SIGNAL_GROUP_EXIT doesn't look
right to me.  This coredumping process is not exiting yet, it can do a lot
of work dumping the core.

With this patch the dumping process doesn't have SIGNAL_GROUP_EXIT, we set
signal->group_exit_task instead.  This makes signal_group_exit() true and
thus this should equally close the races with exit/exec/stop but allows to
kill the dumping thread reliably.

Notes:
- It is not clear what should we do with ->group_exit_code
  if the dumper was killed, see the next change.

- we need more (hopefully straightforward) changes to ensure
  that SIGKILL actually interrupts the coredump. Basically we
  need to check __fatal_signal_pending() in dump_write() and
  dump_seek().

6 years agocoredump: only SIGKILL should interrupt the coredumping task
Oleg Nesterov [Tue, 30 Apr 2013 22:28:10 +0000]
coredump: only SIGKILL should interrupt the coredumping task

There are 2 well known and ancient problems with coredump/signals, and a
lot of related bug reports:

- do_coredump() clears TIF_SIGPENDING but of course this can't help
  if, say, SIGCHLD comes after that.

  In this case the coredump can fail unexpectedly. See for example
  wait_for_dump_helper()->signal_pending() check but there are other
  reasons.

- At the same time, dumping a huge core on the slow media can take a
  lot of time/resources and there is no way to kill the coredumping
  task reliably. In particular this is not oom_kill-friendly.

This patch tries to fix the 1st problem, and makes the preparation for the
next changes.

We add the new SIGNAL_GROUP_COREDUMP flag set by zap_threads() to indicate
that this process dumps the core.  prepare_signal() checks this flag and
nacks any signal except SIGKILL.

Note that this check tries to be conservative, in the long term we should
probably treat the SIGNAL_GROUP_EXIT case equally but this needs more
discussion.  See marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=120508897917439

Notes:
- recalc_sigpending() doesn't check SIGNAL_GROUP_COREDUMP.
  The patch assumes that dump_write/etc paths should never
  call it, but we can change it as well.

- There is another source of TIF_SIGPENDING, freezer. This
  will be addressed separately.

6 years agoptrace: add ability to retrieve signals without removing from a queue (v4)
Andrey Vagin [Tue, 30 Apr 2013 22:27:59 +0000]
ptrace: add ability to retrieve signals without removing from a queue (v4)

This patch adds a new ptrace request PTRACE_PEEKSIGINFO.

This request is used to retrieve information about pending signals
starting with the specified sequence number.  Siginfo_t structures are
copied from the child into the buffer starting at "data".

The argument "addr" is a pointer to struct ptrace_peeksiginfo_args.
struct ptrace_peeksiginfo_args {
u64 off; /* from which siginfo to start */
u32 flags;
s32 nr; /* how may siginfos to take */
};

"nr" has type "s32", because ptrace() returns "long", which has 32 bits on
i386 and a negative values is used for errors.

Currently here is only one flag PTRACE_PEEKSIGINFO_SHARED for dumping
signals from process-wide queue.  If this flag is not set, signals are
read from a per-thread queue.

The request PTRACE_PEEKSIGINFO returns a number of dumped signals.  If a
signal with the specified sequence number doesn't exist, ptrace returns
zero.  The request returns an error, if no signal has been dumped.

Errors:
EINVAL - one or more specified flags are not supported or nr is negative
EFAULT - buf or addr is outside your accessible address space.

A result siginfo contains a kernel part of si_code which usually striped,
but it's required for queuing the same siginfo back during restore of
pending signals.

This functionality is required for checkpointing pending signals.  Pedro
Alves suggested using it in "gdb" to peek at pending signals.  gdb already
uses PTRACE_GETSIGINFO to get the siginfo for the signal which was already
dequeued.  This functionality allows gdb to look at the pending signals
which were not reported yet.

The prototype of this code was developed by Oleg Nesterov.

6 years agonilfs2: fix issue with flush kernel thread after remount in RO mode because of driver...
Vyacheslav Dubeyko [Tue, 30 Apr 2013 22:27:48 +0000]
nilfs2: fix issue with flush kernel thread after remount in RO mode because of driver's internal error or metadata corruption

The NILFS2 driver remounts itself in RO mode in the case of discovering
metadata corruption (for example, discovering a broken bmap).  But
usually, this takes place when there have been file system operations
before remounting in RO mode.

Thereby, NILFS2 driver can be in RO mode with presence of dirty pages in
modified inodes' address spaces.  It results in flush kernel thread's
infinite trying to flush dirty pages in RO mode.  As a result, it is
possible to see such side effects as: (1) flush kernel thread occupies
50% - 99% of CPU time; (2) system can't be shutdowned without manual
power switch off.

SYMPTOMS:
(1) System log contains error message: "Remounting filesystem read-only".
(2) The flush kernel thread occupies 50% - 99% of CPU time.
(3) The system can't be shutdowned without manual power switch off.

REPRODUCTION PATH:
(1) Create volume group with name "unencrypted" by means of vgcreate utility.
(2) Run script (prepared by Anthony Doggett <Anthony2486@interfaces.org.uk>):

  ----------------[BEGIN SCRIPT]--------------------
  #!/bin/bash

  VG=unencrypted
  #apt-get install nilfs-tools darcs
  lvcreate --size 2G --name ntest $VG
  mkfs.nilfs2 -b 1024 -B 8192 /dev/mapper/$VG-ntest
  mkdir /var/tmp/n
  mkdir /var/tmp/n/ntest
  mount /dev/mapper/$VG-ntest /var/tmp/n/ntest
  mkdir /var/tmp/n/ntest/thedir
  cd /var/tmp/n/ntest/thedir
  sleep 2
  date
  darcs init
  sleep 2
  dmesg|tail -n 5
  date
  darcs whatsnew || true
  date
  sleep 2
  dmesg|tail -n 5
  ----------------[END SCRIPT]--------------------

(3) Try to shutdown the system.

REPRODUCIBILITY: 100%

FIX:

This patch implements checking mount state of NILFS2 driver in
nilfs_writepage(), nilfs_writepages() and nilfs_mdt_write_page()
methods.  If it is detected the RO mount state then all dirty pages are
simply discarded with warning messages is written in system log.

epoll: trim epitem by one cache line

It is common for epoll users to have thousands of epitems, so saving a
cache line on every allocation leads to large memory savings.

Since epitem allocations are cache-aligned, reducing sizeof(struct
epitem) from 136 bytes to 128 bytes will allow it to squeeze under a
cache line boundary on x86_64.

Via /sys/kernel/slab/eventpoll_epi, I see the following changes on my
x86_64 Core2 Duo (which has 64-byte cache alignment):

object_size  :  192 => 128
objs_per_slab:   21 =>  32

Also, add a BUILD_BUG_ON() to check for future accidental breakage.

lib/string_helpers: introduce generic string_unescape

There are several places in kernel where modules unescapes input to convert
C-Style Escape Sequences into byte codes.

The patch provides generic implementation of such approach. Test cases are
also included into the patch.

include/linux/fs.h: disable preempt when acquire i_size_seqcount write lock

Two rt tasks bind to one CPU core.

The higher priority rt task A preempts a lower priority rt task B which
has already taken the write seq lock, and then the higher priority rt
task A try to acquire read seq lock, it's doomed to lockup.

rt task A with lower priority: call write
i_size_write                                        rt task B with higher priority: call sync, and preempt task A
  write_seqcount_begin(&inode->i_size_seqcount);    i_size_read
  inode->i_size = i_size;                             read_seqcount_begin <-- lockup here...

So disable preempt when acquiring every i_size_seqcount *write* lock will
cure the problem.

6 years agowriteback: set worker desc to identify writeback workers in task dumps
Tejun Heo [Tue, 30 Apr 2013 22:27:24 +0000]
writeback: set worker desc to identify writeback workers in task dumps

Writeback has been recently converted to use workqueue instead of its
private thread pool implementation.  One negative side effect of this
conversion is that there's no easy to tell which backing device a
writeback work item was working on at the time of task dump, be it
sysrq-t, BUG, WARN or whatever, which, according to our writeback
brethren, is important in tracking down issues with a lot of mounted
file systems on a lot of different devices.

This patch restores that information using the new worker description
facility.  bdi_writeback_workfn() calls set_work_desc() to identify
which bdi it's working on.  The description is printed out together with
the worqueue name and worker function as in the following example dump.

6 years agoworkqueue: include workqueue info when printing debug dump of a worker task
Tejun Heo [Tue, 30 Apr 2013 22:27:22 +0000]
workqueue: include workqueue info when printing debug dump of a worker task

One of the problems that arise when converting dedicated custom
threadpool to workqueue is that the shared worker pool used by workqueue
anonimizes each worker making it more difficult to identify what the
worker was doing on which target from the output of sysrq-t or debug
dump from oops, BUG() and friends.

This patch implements set_worker_desc() which can be called from any
workqueue work function to set its description.  When the worker task is
dumped for whatever reason - sysrq-t, WARN, BUG, oops, lockdep assertion
and so on - the description will be printed out together with the
workqueue name and the worker function pointer.

The printing side is implemented by print_worker_info() which is called
from functions in task dump paths - sched_show_task() and
dump_stack_print_info().  print_worker_info() can be safely called on
any task in any state as long as the task struct itself is accessible.
It uses probe_*() functions to access worker fields.  It may print
garbage if something went very wrong, but it wouldn't cause (another)
oops.

The description is currently limited to 24bytes including the
terminating \0.  worker->desc_valid and workder->desc[] are added and
the 64 bytes marker which was already incorrect before adding the new
fields is moved to the correct position.

Here's an example dump with writeback updated to set the bdi name as
worker desc.

6 years agokthread: implement probe_kthread_data()
Tejun Heo [Tue, 30 Apr 2013 22:27:21 +0000]
kthread: implement probe_kthread_data()

One of the problems that arise when converting dedicated custom threadpool
to workqueue is that the shared worker pool used by workqueue anonimizes
each worker making it more difficult to identify what the worker was doing
on which target from the output of sysrq-t or debug dump from oops, BUG()
and friends.

For example, after writeback is converted to use workqueue instead of
priviate thread pool, there's no easy to tell which backing device a
writeback work item was working on at the time of task dump, which,
according to our writeback brethren, is important in tracking down issues
with a lot of mounted file systems on a lot of different devices.

This patchset implements a way for a work function to mark its execution
instance so that task dump of the worker task includes information to
indicate what the work item was doing.

An example WARN dump would look like the following.

 WARNING: at fs/fs-writeback.c:1015 bdi_writeback_workfn+0x2b4/0x3c0()
 Modules linked in:

  [<ffffffff8108f500>] warn_slowpath_common+0x70/0xa0
  ...

This patch:

Implement probe_kthread_data() which returns kthread_data if accessible.
The function is equivalent to kthread_data() except that the specified
@task may not be a kthread or its vfork_done is already cleared rendering
struct kthread inaccessible.  In the former case, probe_kthread_data() may
return any value.  In the latter, NULL.

This will be used to safely print debug information without affecting
synchronization in the normal paths.  Workqueue debug info printing on
dump_stack() and friends will make use of it.
