10 years agoFS-Cache: Add cache management
David Howells [Fri, 3 Apr 2009 15:42:37 +0000]
FS-Cache: Add cache management

Implement the entry points by which a cache backend may initialise, add,
declare an error upon and withdraw a cache.

Further, an object is created in sysfs under which each cache added will get
an object created:

/sys/fs/fscache/<cachetag>/

All of this is described in Documentation/filesystems/caching/backend-api.txt
added by a previous patch.

FS-Cache: Add cache tag handling

Implement two features of FS-Cache:

 (1) The ability to request and release cache tags - names by which a cache may
     be known to a netfs, and thus selected for use.

 (2) An internal function by which a cache is selected by consulting the netfs,
     if the netfs wishes to be consulted.

10 years agoFS-Cache: Root index definition
David Howells [Fri, 3 Apr 2009 15:42:37 +0000]
FS-Cache: Root index definition

Add a description of the root index of the cache for later patches to make use
of.

The root index is owned by FS-Cache itself.  When a netfs requests caching
facilities, FS-Cache will, if one doesn't already exist, create an entry in
the root index with the key being the name of the netfs ("AFS" for example),
and the auxiliary data holding the index structure version supplied by the
netfs:

     FSDEF
       |
 +-----------+
 |           |
NFS         AFS
       [v=1]       [v=1]

If an entry with the appropriate name does already exist, the version is
compared.  If the version is different, the entire subtree from that entry
will be discarded and a new entry created.

The new entry will be an index, and a cookie referring to it will be passed to
the netfs.  This is then the root handle by which the netfs accesses the
cache.  It can create whatever objects it likes in that index, including
further indices.

David Howells [Fri, 3 Apr 2009 15:42:37 +0000]
FS-Cache: Add use of /proc and presentation of statistics

Make FS-Cache create its /proc interface and present various statistical
information through it.  Also provide the functions for updating this
information.

These features are enabled by:

CONFIG_FSCACHE_PROC
CONFIG_FSCACHE_STATS
CONFIG_FSCACHE_HISTOGRAM

The /proc directory for FS-Cache is also exported so that caching modules can
add their own statistics there too.

The FS-Cache module is loadable at this point, and the statistics files can be
examined by userspace:

cat /proc/fs/fscache/stats
cat /proc/fs/fscache/histogram

The two configuration options added are:

CONFIG_FSCACHE_DEBUG

The first enables the facility, and the second makes the debugging statements
enableable through the "debug" module parameter.  The value of this parameter
is a bitmask as described in:

David Howells [Fri, 3 Apr 2009 15:42:36 +0000]
FS-Cache: Add the FS-Cache netfs API and documentation

Add the API for a generic facility (FS-Cache) by which filesystems (such as AFS
or NFS) may call on local caching capabilities without having to know anything
about how the cache works, or even if there is a cache:

+---------+
|         |                        +--------------+
|   NFS   |--+                     |              |
|         |  |                 +-->|   CacheFS    |

|  ISOFS  |--+                     |  /var/cache  |
|         |                        +--------------+
+---------+

General documentation and documentation of the netfs specific API are provided
in addition to the header files.

As this patch stands, it is possible to build a filesystem against the facility
and attempt to use it.  All that will happen is that all requests will be
immediately denied as if no cache is present.

Further patches will implement the core of the facility.  The facility will
transfer requests from networking filesystems to appropriate caches if
possible, or else gracefully deny them.

If this facility is disabled in the kernel configuration, then all its
operations will trivially reduce to nothing during compilation.

WHY NOT I_MAPPING?
==================

I have added my own API to implement caching rather than using i_mapping to do
this for a number of reasons.  These have been discussed a lot on the LKML and
CacheFS mailing lists, but to summarise the basics:

 (1) Most filesystems don't do hole reportage.  Holes in files are treated as
     blocks of zeros and can't be distinguished otherwise, making it difficult
     to distinguish blocks that have been read from the network and cached from
     those that haven't.

 (2) The backing inode must be fully populated before being exposed to
     userspace through the main inode because the VM/VFS goes directly to the
     backing inode and does not interrogate the front inode's VM ops.

     Therefore:

     (a) The backing inode must fit entirely within the cache.

     (b) All backed files currently open must fit entirely within the cache at
       the same time.

     (c) A working set of files in total larger than the cache may not be
       cached.

     (d) A file may not grow larger than the available space in the cache.

     (e) A file that's open and cached, and remotely grows larger than the
       cache is potentially stuffed.

 (3) Writes go to the backing filesystem, and can only be transferred to the
     network when the file is closed.

 (4) There's no record of what changes have been made, so the whole file must
     be written back.

 (5) The pages belong to the backing filesystem, and all metadata associated
     with that page are relevant only to the backing filesystem, and not
     anything stacked atop it.

OVERVIEW
========

FS-Cache provides (or will provide) the following facilities:

 (1) Caches can be added / removed at any time, even whilst in use.

 (2) Adds a facility by which tags can be used to refer to caches, even if
     they're not available yet.

 (3) More than one cache can be used at once.  Caches can be selected
     explicitly by use of tags.

 (4) The netfs is provided with an interface that allows either party to
     withdraw caching facilities from a file (required for (1)).

 (5) A netfs may annotate cache objects that belongs to it.  This permits the
     storage of coherency maintenance data.

 (6) Cache objects will be pinnable and space reservations will be possible.

 (7) The interface to the netfs returns as few errors as possible, preferring
     rather to let the netfs remain oblivious.

 (8) Cookies are used to represent indices, files and other objects to the
     netfs.  The simplest cookie is just a NULL pointer - indicating nothing
     cached there.

 (9) The netfs is allowed to propose - dynamically - any index hierarchy it
     desires, though it must be aware that the index search function is
     recursive, stack space is limited, and indices can only be children of
     indices.

(10) Indices can be used to group files together to reduce key size and to make
     group invalidation easier.  The use of indices may make lookup quicker,
     but that's cache dependent.

(11) Data I/O is effectively done directly to and from the netfs's pages.  The
     netfs indicates that page A is at index B of the data-file represented by
     cookie C, and that it should be read or written.  The cache backend may or
     may not start I/O on that page, but if it does, a netfs callback will be
     invoked to indicate completion.  The I/O may be either synchronous or
     asynchronous.

(12) Cookies can be "retired" upon release.  At this point FS-Cache will mark
     them as obsolete and the index hierarchy rooted at that point will get
     recycled.

(13) The netfs provides a "match" function for index searches.  In addition to
     saying whether a match was made or not, this can also specify that an
     entry should be updated or deleted.

FS-Cache maintains a virtual index tree in which all indices, files, objects
and pages are kept.  Bits of this tree may actually reside in one or more
caches.

In the example above, two netfs's can be seen to be backed: NFS and AFS.  These
have different index hierarchies:

 (*) The NFS primary index will probably contain per-server indices.  Each
     server index is indexed by NFS file handles to get data file objects.
     Each data file objects can have an array of pages, but may also have
     further child objects, such as extended attributes and directory entries.
     Extended attribute objects themselves have page-array contents.

 (*) The AFS primary index contains per-cell indices.  Each cell index contains
     per-logical-volume indices.  Each of volume index contains up to three
     indices for the read-write, read-only and backup mirrors of those volumes.
     Each of these contains vnode data file objects, each of which contains an
     array of pages.

The very top index is the FS-Cache master index in which individual netfs's
have entries.

Any index object may reside in more than one cache, provided it only has index
children.  Any index with non-index object children will be assumed to only
reside in one cache.

10 years agoCreate a dynamically sized pool of threads for doing very slow work items
David Howells [Fri, 3 Apr 2009 15:42:35 +0000]
Create a dynamically sized pool of threads for doing very slow work items

Create a dynamically sized pool of threads for doing very slow work items, such
as invoking mkdir() or rmdir() - things that may take a long time and may
sleep, holding mutexes/semaphores and hogging a thread, and are thus unsuitable
for workqueues.

The number of threads is always at least a settable minimum, but more are
started when there's more work to do, up to a limit.  Because of the nature of
the load, it's not suitable for a 1-thread-per-CPU type pool.  A system with
one CPU may well want several threads.

This is used by FS-Cache to do slow caching operations in the background, such
as looking up, creating or deleting cache objects.

cpumask: fix slab corruption caused by alloc_cpumask_var_node()

Fix slab corruption caused by alloc_cpumask_var_node() overwriting the
tail end of an off-stack cpumask.

The function zeros out cpumask bits beyond the last possible cpu.  The
starting point for zeroing should be the beginning of the mask offset by a
byte count derived from the number of possible cpus.  The offset was
calculated in bits instead of bytes.  This resulted in overwriting the end
of the cpumask.

10 years agoFactor out #ifdefs from kernel/spinlock.c to LOCK_CONTENDED_FLAGS
Robin Holt [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:59:45 +0000]
Factor out #ifdefs from kernel/spinlock.c to LOCK_CONTENDED_FLAGS

SGI has observed that on large systems, interrupts are not serviced for a
long period of time when waiting for a rwlock.  The following patch series
re-enables irqs while waiting for the lock, resembling the code which is
already there for spinlocks.

I only made the ia64 version, because the patch adds some overhead to the
fast path.  I assume there is currently no demand to have this for other
architectures, because the systems are not so large.  Of course, the
possibility to implement raw_{read|write}_lock_flags for any architecture
is still there.

This patch:

The new macro LOCK_CONTENDED_FLAGS expands to the correct implementation
depending on the config options, so that IRQ's are re-enabled when
possible, but they remain disabled if CONFIG_LOCKDEP is set.

fs/adfs: return f_fsid for statfs(2)

Currently many file systems in Linux kernel do not return f_fsid in statfs
info, the value is set as 0 in vfs layer.  Anyway, in some conditions,
f_fsid from statfs(2) is useful, especially being used as (f_fsid, ino)
pair to uniquely identify a file.

Basic idea of the patches is generating a unique fs ID by
huge_encode_dev(sb->s_bdev->bd_dev) during file system mounting life time
(no endian consistent issue).  sb is a point of struct super_block of
current mounted file system being accessed by statfs(2).

This patch:

Make adfs return f_fsid info for statfs(2), and do a little variable
renaming in adfs_statfs().

10 years agopreadv/pwritev: Add preadv and pwritev system calls.
Gerd Hoffmann [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:59:23 +0000]
preadv/pwritev: Add preadv and pwritev system calls.

This patch adds preadv and pwritev system calls.  These syscalls are a
pretty straightforward combination of pread and readv (same for write).
They are quite useful for doing vectored I/O in threaded applications.
Using lseek+readv instead opens race windows you'll have to plug with
locking.

Other systems have such system calls too, for example NetBSD, check
here: http://www.daemon-systems.org/man/preadv.2.html

The application-visible interface provided by glibc should look like
this to be compatible to the existing implementations in the *BSD family:

  ssize_t preadv(int d, const struct iovec *iov, int iovcnt, off_t offset);
  ssize_t pwritev(int d, const struct iovec *iov, int iovcnt, off_t offset);

This prototype has one problem though: On 32bit archs is the (64bit)
offset argument unaligned, which the syscall ABI of several archs doesn't
allow to do.  At least s390 needs a wrapper in glibc to handle this.  As
we'll need a wrappers in glibc anyway I've decided to push problem to
glibc entriely and use a syscall prototype which works without
arch-specific wrappers inside the kernel: The offset argument is
explicitly splitted into two 32bit values.

The patch sports the actual system call implementation and the windup in
the x86 system call tables.  Other archs follow as separate patches.

10 years agoparport: netmos 9845 & 9855 1P4S fixes
Philippe De Muyter [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:58:53 +0000]
parport: netmos 9845 & 9855 1P4S fixes

netmos serial/parallel adapters come in different flavour differing only
by the number of parallel and serial ports, which are encoded in the
subdevice ID.

Last fix of Christian Pellegrin for 9855 2P2S broke support for 9855 1P4S,
and works only by side-effect for the first parallel port of a 2P2S, as
this first parallel port is found by reading the second addr entry of
(struct parport_pc_pci) cards[netmos_9855], which is not initialized, and
hence has value 0, which happens to be the BAR of the first parallel port.

netmos_9xx5_combo entry in (struct parport_pc_pci) cards[], which is used
for a 9845 1P4S must also be fixed for the parallel port support when
there are 4 serial ports because this entry currently gives 2 as BAR index
for the parallel port.  Actually, in this case, BAR 2 is the 3rd serial
port while the parallel port is at BAR 4.

I fixed 9845 1P4S and 9855 1P4S support, while preserving 9855 2P2S support,

- by creating a netmos_9855_2p entry and using it for 9855 boards with 2
  parallel ports : 9855 2P2S and 9855 2P0S boards,

- and by allowing netmos_parallel_init to change not only the number of
  parallel ports (0 or 1), but making it also change the BAR index of the
  parallel port when the serial ports are before the parallel port.

PS: the netmos_9855_2p entry in (struct pciserial_board)
pci_parport_serial_boards[] is needed because netmos_parallel_init has no
clean way to replace FL_BASE2 by FL_BASE4 in the description of the serial
ports in function of the number of parallel ports on the card.

Tested with 9845 1P4S, 9855 1P4S and 9855 2P2S boards.

10 years agoedac: new ppc4xx driver module
Grant Erickson [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:58:45 +0000]
edac: new ppc4xx driver module

This adds support for an EDAC memory controller adaptation driver for the
"ibm,sdram-4xx-ddr2" ECC controller realized in the AMCC PowerPC 405EX[r].

At present, this driver has been developed and tested against the
controller realization in the AMCC PPC405EX[r] on the AMCC Kilauea and
Haleakala boards (256 MiB w/o ECC memory soldered onto the board) and a
proprietary board based on those designs (128 MiB ECC memory, also
soldered onto the board).

In the future, dynamic feature detection and handling needs to be added
for the other realizations of this controller found in the 440SP, 440SPe,
460EX, 460GT and 460SX.

Eventually, this driver will likely be evolved and adapted to the above
variant realizations of this controller as well as broken apart to handle
the other known ECC-capable controllers prevalent in other PPC4xx
processors:

  - IBM SDRAM (405GP, 405CR and 405EP) "ibm,sdram-4xx"
  - IBM DDR1 (440GP, 440GX, 440EP and 440GR) "ibm,sdram-4xx-ddr"
  - Denali DDR1/DDR2 (440EPX and 440GRX) "denali,sdram-4xx-ddr2"

pids: kill signal_struct-> __pgrp/__session and friends

We are wasting 2 words in signal_struct without any reason to implement
task_pgrp_nr() and task_session_nr().

task_session_nr() has no callers since
2e2ba22ea4fd4bb85f0fa37c521066db6775cbef, we can remove it.

task_pgrp_nr() is still (I believe wrongly) used in fs/autofsX and
fs/coda.

This patch reimplements task_pgrp_nr() via task_pgrp_nr_ns(), and kills
__pgrp/__session and the related helpers.

The change in drivers/char/tty_io.c is cosmetic, but hopefully makes sense
anyway.

10 years agopids: refactor vnr/nr_ns helpers to make them safe
Oleg Nesterov [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:58:38 +0000]
pids: refactor vnr/nr_ns helpers to make them safe

Inho, the safety rules for vnr/nr_ns helpers are horrible and buggy.

task_pid_nr_ns(task) needs rcu/tasklist depending on task == current.

As for "special" pids, vnr/nr_ns helpers always need rcu.  However, if
task != current, they are unsafe even under rcu lock, we can't trust
task->group_leader without the special checks.

And almost every helper has a callsite which needs a fix.

Also, it is a bit annoying that the implementations of, say,
task_pgrp_vnr() and task_pgrp_nr_ns() are not "symmetrical".

This patch introduces the new helper, __task_pid_nr_ns(), which is always
safe to use, and turns all other helpers into the trivial wrappers.

After this I'll send another patch which converts task_tgid_xxx() as well,
they're are a bit special.

the child must not "escape" for sys_pause(), but it can and this was seen
in practice.

This is because ptrace_detach does:

if (!child->exit_state)
wake_up_process(child);

this wakeup can happen after this child has already restarted sys_pause(),
because it gets another wakeup from ptrace_untrace().

With or without this patch, perhaps sys_pause() needs a fix.  But this
wakeup also breaks the SIGNAL_STOP_STOPPED logic in ptrace_untrace().

Remove this wakeup.  The caller saw this task in TASK_TRACED state, and
unless it was SIGKILL'ed in between __ptrace_unlink()->ptrace_untrace()
should handle this case correctly.  If it was SIGKILL'ed, we don't need to
wakup the dying tracee too.

10 years agoforget_original_parent: do not abuse child->ptrace_entry
Oleg Nesterov [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:58:19 +0000]
forget_original_parent: do not abuse child->ptrace_entry

By discussion with Roland.

- Use ->sibling instead of ->ptrace_entry to chain the need to be
  release_task'd childs. Nobody else can use ->sibling, this task
  is EXIT_DEAD and nobody can find it on its own list.

- rename ptrace_dead to dead_childs.

- Now that we don't have the "parallel" untrace code, change back
  reparent_thread() to return void, pass dead_childs as an argument.

Actually, I don't understand why do we notify /sbin/init when we
reparent a zombie, probably it is better to reap it unconditionally.

By discussion with Roland.

- Rename ptrace_exit() to exit_ptrace(), and change it to do all the
  necessary work with ->ptraced list by its own.

- Move this code from exit.c to ptrace.c

10 years agoreparent_thread: fix a zombie leak if /sbin/init ignores SIGCHLD
Oleg Nesterov [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:58:17 +0000]
reparent_thread: fix a zombie leak if /sbin/init ignores SIGCHLD

If /sbin/init ignores SIGCHLD and we re-parent a zombie, it is leaked.
reparent_thread() does do_notify_parent() which sets ->exit_signal = -1 in
this case.  This means that nobody except us can reap it, the detached
task is not visible to do_wait().

Change reparent_thread() to return a boolean (like __pthread_detach) to
indicate that the thread is dead and must be released.  Also change
forget_original_parent() to add the child to ptrace_dead list in this
case.

The naming becomes insane, the next patch does the cleanup.

10 years agoreparent_thread: fix the "is it traced" check
Oleg Nesterov [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:58:16 +0000]
reparent_thread: fix the "is it traced" check

reparent_thread() uses ptrace_reparented() to check whether this thread is
ptraced, in that case we should not notify the new parent.

But ptrace_reparented() is not exactly correct when the reparented thread
is traced by /sbin/init, because forget_original_parent() has already
changed ->real_parent.

Currently, the only problem is the false notification.  But with the next
patch the kernel crash in this (yes, pathological) case.

10 years agoreparent_thread: don't call kill_orphaned_pgrp() if task_detached()
Oleg Nesterov [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:58:15 +0000]
reparent_thread: don't call kill_orphaned_pgrp() if task_detached()

If task_detached(p) == T, then either

  a) p is not the main thread, we will find the group leader on the
     ->children list.

or

  b) p is the group leader but its ->exit_state = EXIT_DEAD.  This
     can only happen when the last sub-thread has died, but in that case
     that thread has already called kill_orphaned_pgrp() from
     exit_notify().

In both cases kill_orphaned_pgrp() looks bogus.

Move the task_detached() check up and simplify the code, this is also
right from the "common sense" pov: we should do nothing with the detached
childs, except move them to the new parent's ->children list.

Oleg Nesterov [Thu, 2 Apr 2009 23:58:14 +0000]
ptrace: fix possible zombie leak on PTRACE_DETACH

When ptrace_detach() takes tasklist, the tracee can be SIGKILL'ed.  If it
has already passed exit_notify() we can leak a zombie, because a) ptracing
disables the auto-reaping logic, and b) ->real_parent was not notified
about the child's death.

ptrace_detach() should follow the ptrace_exit's logic, change the code
accordingly.
