The way to DEBUG_RODATA interactions with KPROBES and CPU hotplug is to

Mel Gorman [Thu, 26 Jul 2007 17:41:18 +0000]
Allow nodes to exist that only contain ZONE_MOVABLE

With the introduction of kernelcore=, a configurable zone is created on
request.  In some cases, this value will be small enough that some nodes
contain only ZONE_MOVABLE.  On some NUMA configurations when this occurs,
arch-independent zone-sizing will get the size of the memory holes within
the node incorrect.  The value of present_pages goes negative and the boot
fails.

This patch fixes the bug in the calculation of the size of the hole.  The
test case is to boot test a NUMA machine with a low value of kernelcore=
before and after the patch is applied.  While this bug exists in early
kernel it cannot be triggered in practice.

This patch has been boot-tested on a variety machines with and without
kernelcore= set.

However, I see a possibly related binutils patch:
http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.gnu.binutils/33650

It was tracked down to be caused by the weak prototype
declaration in mm.h:
__attribute__((weak)) const char *arch_vma_name(struct vm_area_struct *vma);

But there is no need to make the declaration weak - only the definition
needs to be marked weak.  So drop the weak declaration.  And in the process
drop the duplicate definition in page.h for powerpc.

Note: the arch_vma_name fix for x86_64 needs to be applied first to avoid

fix inode_table test in ext234_check_descriptors

ext[234]_check_descriptors sanity checks block group descriptor geometry at
mount time, testing whether the block bitmap, inode bitmap, and inode table
reside wholly within the blockgroup.  However, the inode table test is off
by one so that if the last block in the inode table resides on the last
block of the block group, the test incorrectly fails.  This is because it
tests the last block as (start + length) rather than (start + length - 1).

This can be seen by trying to mount a filesystem made such as:

 mkfs.ext2 -F -b 1024 -m 0 -g 256 -N 3744 fsfile 1024

which yields:

 EXT2-fs error (device loop0): ext2_check_descriptors: Inode table for group 0 not in group (block 101)!
 EXT2-fs: group descriptors corrupted!

There is a similar bug in e2fsprogs, patch already sent for that.

(I wonder if inside(), outside(), and/or in_range() should someday be
used in this and other tests throughout the ext filesystems...)

memory unplug: isolate_lru_page fix

release_pages() in mm/swap.c changes page_count() to be 0 without removing
PageLRU flag...

This means isolate_lru_page() can see a page, PageLRU() &&
page_count(page)==0..  This is BUG.  (get_page() will be called against
count=0 page.)

12 years agomemory unplug: migration by kernel
KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Thu, 26 Jul 2007 17:41:07 +0000]
memory unplug: migration by kernel

In usual, migrate_pages(page,,) is called with holding mm->sem by system call.
(mm here is a mm_struct which maps the migration target page.)
This semaphore helps avoiding some race conditions.

But, if we want to migrate a page by some kernel codes, we have to avoid
some races. This patch adds check code for following race condition.

1. A page which page->mapping==NULL can be target of migration. Then, we have
   to check page->mapping before calling try_to_unmap().

2. anon_vma can be freed while page is unmapped, but page->mapping remains as
   it was. We drop page->mapcount to be 0. Then we cannot trust page->mapping.
   So, use rcu_read_lock() to prevent anon_vma pointed by page->mapping from
   being freed during migration.

12 years agomake timerfd return a u64 and fix the __put_user
Davide Libenzi [Thu, 26 Jul 2007 17:41:07 +0000]
make timerfd return a u64 and fix the __put_user

Davi fixed a missing cast in the __put_user(), that was making timerfd
return a single byte instead of the full value.

Talking with Michael about the timerfd man page, we think it'd be better to
use a u64 for the returned value, to align it with the eventfd
implementation.

This is an ABI change.  The timerfd code is new in 2.6.22 and if we merge this
into 2.6.23 then we should also merge it into 2.6.22.x.  That will leave a few
early 2.6.22 kernels out in the wild which might misbehave when a future
timerfd-enabled glibc is run on them.

mtk says: The difference would be that read() will only return 4 bytes, while
the application will expect 8.  If the application is checking the size of
returned value, as it should, then it will be able to detect the problem (it
could even be sophisticated enough to know that if this is a 4-byte return,
then it is running on an old 2.6.22 kernel).  If the application is not
checking the return from read(), then its 8-byte buffer will not be filled --
the contents of the last 4 bytes will be undefined, so the u64 value as a
whole will be junk.

ip6_tunnel - endianness annotations

Convert rel_info to host-endian before calling ip6_tnl_err().
The things become much more straightforward that way.
The key observation (and the reason why that code actually
worked) is that after ip6_tnl_err() we either immediately
bailed out or had rel_info set to 0 or had it set to host-endian
and guaranteed to hit
(rel_type == ICMP_DEST_UNREACH && rel_code == ICMP_FRAG_NEEDED)
case.  So inconsistent endianness didn't really lead to bugs,
but it had been subtle and prone to breakage.  New variant is
saner and obviously safe.

Currently we calculate the first timeslice for every context
incorrectly - alloc_spu_context calls spu_set_timeslice before we set
ctx->prio so we always calculate the longest possible timeslice for the
lowest possible priority.

This patch makes sure to update the schedule-related fields before
calculating the timeslice and also makes sure we update the timeslice for
a non-running context when entering spu_run so a priority change affects
