9 years agoipc/sem.c: update description of the implementation
Manfred Spraul [Wed, 26 May 2010 21:43:43 +0000]
ipc/sem.c: update description of the implementation

ipc/sem.c begins with a 15 year old description about bugs in the initial
implementation in Linux-1.0.  The patch replaces that with a top level
description of the current code.

A TODO could be derived from this text:

The opengroup man page for semop() does not mandate FIFO.  Thus there is
no need for a semaphore array list of pending operations.

If

- this list is removed
- the per-semaphore array spinlock is removed (possible if there is no
  list to protect)
- sem_otime is moved into the semaphores and calculated on demand during
  semctl()

then the array would be read-mostly - which would significantly improve
scaling for applications that use semaphore arrays with lots of entries.

The price would be expensive semctl() calls:

for(i=0;i<sma->sem_nsems;i++) spin_lock(sma->sem_lock);
<do stuff>
for(i=0;i<sma->sem_nsems;i++) spin_unlock(sma->sem_lock);

I'm not sure if the complexity is worth the effort, thus here is the
documentation of the current behavior first.

9 years agoipc/sem.c: move wake_up_process out of the spinlock section
Manfred Spraul [Wed, 26 May 2010 21:43:41 +0000]
ipc/sem.c: move wake_up_process out of the spinlock section

The wake-up part of semtimedop() consists out of two steps:

- the right tasks must be identified.
- they must be woken up.

Right now, both steps run while the array spinlock is held.  This patch
reorders the code and moves the actual wake_up_process() behind the point
where the spinlock is dropped.

The code also moves setting sem->sem_otime to one place: It does not make
sense to set the last modify time multiple times.

9 years agoipc/sem.c: optimize update_queue() for bulk wakeup calls
Manfred Spraul [Wed, 26 May 2010 21:43:40 +0000]
ipc/sem.c: optimize update_queue() for bulk wakeup calls

The following series of patches tries to fix the spinlock contention
reported by Chris Mason - his benchmark exposes problems of the current
code:

- In the worst case, the algorithm used by update_queue() is O(N^2).
  Bulk wake-up calls can enter this worst case.  The patch series fix
  that.

  Note that the benchmark app doesn't expose the problem, it just should
  be fixed: Real world apps might do the wake-ups in another order than
  perfect FIFO.

- The part of the code that runs within the semaphore array spinlock is
  significantly larger than necessary.

  The patch series fixes that.  This change is responsible for the main
  improvement.

- The cacheline with the spinlock is also used for a variable that is
  read in the hot path (sem_base) and for a variable that is unnecessarily
  written to multiple times (sem_otime).  The last step of the series
  cacheline-aligns the spinlock.

This patch:

The SysV semaphore code allows to perform multiple operations on all
semaphores in the array as atomic operations.  After a modification,
update_queue() checks which of the waiting tasks can complete.

The algorithm that is used to identify the tasks is O(N^2) in the worst
case.  For some cases, it is simple to avoid the O(N^2).

The patch adds a detection logic for some cases, especially for the case
of an array where all sleeping tasks are single sembuf operations and a
multi-sembuf operation is used to wake up multiple tasks.

A big database application uses that approach.

The patch fixes wakeup due to semctl(,,SETALL,) - the initial version of
the patch breaks that.

9 years agoidr: fix backtrack logic in idr_remove_all
Imre Deak [Wed, 26 May 2010 21:43:38 +0000]
idr: fix backtrack logic in idr_remove_all

Currently idr_remove_all will fail with a use after free error if
idr::layers is bigger than 2, which on 32 bit systems corresponds to items
more than 1024.  This is due to stepping back too many levels during
backtracking.  For simplicity let's assume that IDR_BITS=1 -> we have 2
nodes at each level below the root node and each leaf node stores two IDs.
 (In reality for 32 bit systems IDR_BITS=5, with 32 nodes at each sub-root
level and 32 IDs in each leaf node).  The sequence of freeing the nodes at
the moment is as follows:

layer
1 ->                       a(7)
2 ->            b(3)                  c(5)
3 ->        d(1)   e(2)           f(4)    g(6)

Until step 4 things go fine, but then node c is freed, whereas node g
should be freed first.  Since node c contains the pointer to node g we'll
have a use after free error at step 6.

How many levels we step back after visiting the leaf nodes is currently
determined by the msb of the id we are currently visiting:

Step
1.          node d with IDs 0,1 is freed, current ID is advanced to 2.
            msb of the current ID bit 1. This means we need to step back
            1 level to node b and take the next sibling, node e.
2-3.        node e with IDs 2,3 is freed, current ID is 4, msb is bit 2.
            This means we need to step back 2 levels to node a, freeing
            node b on the way.
4-5.        node f with IDs 4,5 is freed, current ID is 6, msb is still
            bit 2. This means we again need to step back 2 levels to node
            a and free c on the way.
6.          We should visit node g, but its pointer is not available as
            node c was freed.

The fix changes how we determine the number of levels to step back.
Instead of deducting this merely from the msb of the current ID, we should
really check if advancing the ID causes an overflow to a bit position
corresponding to a given layer.  In the above example overflow from bit 0
to bit 1 should mean stepping back 1 level.  Overflow from bit 1 to bit 2
should mean stepping back 2 levels and so on.

The fix was tested with IDs up to 1 << 20, which corresponds to 4 layers
on 32 bit systems.

9 years agoproc: cleanup: remove unused assignments

proc: cleanup: remove unused assignments

I removed 3 unused assignments.  The first two get reset on the first
statement of their functions.  For "err" in root.c we don't return an
error and we don't use the variable again.

9 years agoproc: turn signal_struct->count into "int nr_threads"
Oleg Nesterov [Wed, 26 May 2010 21:43:24 +0000]
proc: turn signal_struct->count into "int nr_threads"

No functional changes, just s/atomic_t count/int nr_threads/.

With the recent changes this counter has a single user, get_nr_threads()
And, none of its callers need the really accurate number of threads, not
to mention each caller obviously races with fork/exit.  It is only used to
report this value to the user-space, except first_tid() uses it to avoid
the unnecessary while_each_thread() loop in the unlikely case.

It is a bit sad we need a word in struct signal_struct for this, perhaps
we can change get_nr_threads() to approximate the number of threads using
signal->live and kill ->nr_threads later.

Not only this is a bit strange way to return the error, this is absolutely

When the last thread exits signal->tty is freed, but the pointer is not

This is OK.  Nobody should use signal->tty lockless, and it is no longer

the nice OOPS is better than subtle and hard to find bugs.

Change __exit_signal() to clear signal->tty under ->siglock.

Note: __exit_signal() needs more cleanups.  It should not check "sig !=
NULL" to detect the all-dead case and we have the same issues with

Oleg Nesterov [Wed, 26 May 2010 21:43:16 +0000]
signals: make task_struct->signal immutable/refcountable

We have a lot of problems with accessing task_struct->signal, it can
"disappear" at any moment.  Even current can't use its ->signal safely
after exit_notify().  ->siglock helps, but it is not convenient, not
always possible, and sometimes it makes sense to use task->signal even
after this task has already dead.

This patch adds the reference counter, sigcnt, into signal_struct.  This
reference is owned by task_struct and it is dropped in
__put_task_struct().  Perhaps it makes sense to export
get/put_signal_struct() later, but currently I don't see the immediate
reason.

Rename __cleanup_signal() to free_signal_struct() and unexport it.  With
the previous changes it does nothing except kmem_cache_free().

Change __exit_signal() to not clear/free ->signal, it will be freed when
the last reference to any thread in the thread group goes away.

Note:
- when the last thead exits signal->tty can point to nowhere, see
  the next patch.

- with or without this patch signal_struct->count should go away,
  or at least it should be "int nr_threads" for fs/proc. This will
  be addressed later.

Oleg Nesterov [Wed, 26 May 2010 21:43:15 +0000]
fork/exit: move tty_kref_put() outside of __cleanup_signal()

tty_kref_put() has two callsites in copy_process() paths,

1. if copy_process() suceeds it is called before we copy
   signal->tty from parent

2. otherwise it is called from __cleanup_signal() under
   bad_fork_cleanup_signal: label

In both cases tty_kref_put() is not right and unneeded because we don't
have the balancing tty_kref_get().  Fortunately, this is harmless because
this can only happen without CLONE_THREAD, and in this case signal->tty
must be NULL.

Remove tty_kref_put() from copy_process() and __cleanup_signal(), and
change another caller of __cleanup_signal(), __exit_signal(), to call
tty_kref_put() by hand.

I hope this change makes sense by itself, but it is also needed to make
->signal refcountable.

As Roland pointed out, some of these changes are not strictly needed and
probably it makes sense to revert them later, when ->signal will be pinned
to task_struct.  But this patch tries to ensure the subsequent changes in

signal_struct->count in its current form must die.

- it looks like a reference counter, but it is not

- otoh, we really need to make task->signal refcountable, just look at

  after that.

- it is not needed!  while the code is correct, any usage of this
  counter is artificial, except fs/proc uses it correctly to show the
  number of threads.

This series removes the usage of sig->count from exit pathes.

This patch:

Now that Veaceslav changed copy_signal() to use zalloc(), exit_notify()
can just check notify_count < 0 to ensure the execing sub-threads needs
the notification from us.  No need to do other checks, notify_count != 0

do_coredump() does a lot of file checks after it opens the file or calls
usermode helper.  But all of these checks are only needed in !ispipe case.

Oleg Nesterov [Wed, 26 May 2010 21:43:04 +0000]
call_usermodehelper: simplify/fix UMH_NO_WAIT case

__call_usermodehelper(UMH_NO_WAIT) has 2 problems:

- if kernel_thread() fails, call_usermodehelper_freeinfo()
  is not called.

- for unknown reason UMH_NO_WAIT has UMH_WAIT_PROC logic,
  we spawn yet another thread which waits until the user
  mode application exits.

Change the UMH_NO_WAIT code to use ____call_usermodehelper() instead of
wait_for_helper(), and do call_usermodehelper_freeinfo() unconditionally.
We can rely on CLONE_VFORK, do_fork(CLONE_VFORK) until the child exits or
execs.

With or without this patch UMH_NO_WAIT does not report the error if
kernel_thread() fails, this is correct since the caller doesn't wait for
result.

9 years agowait_for_helper: SIGCHLD from user-space can lead to use-after-free
Oleg Nesterov [Wed, 26 May 2010 21:43:03 +0000]
wait_for_helper: SIGCHLD from user-space can lead to use-after-free

1. wait_for_helper() calls allow_signal(SIGCHLD) to ensure the child
   can't autoreap itself.

   However, this means that a spurious SIGCHILD from user-space can
   set TIF_SIGPENDING and:

    - kernel_thread() or sys_wait4() can fail due to signal_pending()

    - worse, wait4() can fail before ____call_usermodehelper() execs
      or exits. In this case the caller may kfree(subprocess_info)
      while the child still uses this memory.

   Change the code to use SIG_DFL instead of magic "(void __user *)2"
   set by allow_signal(). This means that SIGCHLD won't be delivered,
   yet the child won't autoreap itsefl.

   The problem is minor, only root can send a signal to this kthread.

2. If sys_wait4(&ret) fails it doesn't populate "ret", in this case
   wait_for_helper() reports a random value from uninitialized var.

   With this patch sys_wait4() should never fail, but still it makes
   sense to initialize ret = -ECHILD so that the caller can notice
   the problem.

This patch takes advantage of that fact, by customizing the helper in

9 years agokmod: add init function to usermodehelper
Neil Horman [Wed, 26 May 2010 21:42:58 +0000]
kmod: add init function to usermodehelper

About 6 months ago, I made a set of changes to how the core-dump-to-a-pipe
feature in the kernel works.  We had reports of several races, including
some reports of apps bypassing our recursion check so that a process that
was forked as part of a core_pattern setup could infinitely crash and
refork until the system crashed.

We fixed those by improving our recursion checks.  The new check basically
refuses to fork a process if its core limit is zero, which works well.

Unfortunately, I've been getting grief from maintainer of user space
programs that are inserted as the forked process of core_pattern.  They
contend that in order for their programs (such as abrt and apport) to
work, all the running processes in a system must have their core limits
set to a non-zero value, to which I say 'yes'.  I did this by design, and
think thats the right way to do things.

But I've been asked to ease this burden on user space enough times that I
thought I would take a look at it.  The first suggestion was to make the
recursion check fail on a non-zero 'special' number, like one.  That way
the core collector process could set its core size ulimit to 1, and enable
the kernel's recursion detection.  This isn't a bad idea on the surface,
but I don't like it since its opt-in, in that if a program like abrt or
apport has a bug and fails to set such a core limit, we're left with a
recursively crashing system again.

So I've come up with this.  What I've done is modify the
call_usermodehelper api such that an extra parameter is added, a function
pointer which will be called by the user helper task, after it forks, but
before it exec's the required process.  This will give the caller the
opportunity to get a call back in the processes context, allowing it to do
whatever it needs to to the process in the kernel prior to exec-ing the
user space code.  In the case of do_coredump, this callback is ues to set
the core ulimit of the helper process to 1.  This elimnates the opt-in
problem that I had above, as it allows the ulimit for core sizes to be set
to the value of 1, which is what the recursion check looks for in
do_coredump.

This patch:

Create new function call_usermodehelper_fns() and allow it to assign both
an init and cleanup function, as we'll as arbitrary data.

The init function is called from the context of the forked process and
allows for customization of the helper process prior to calling exec.  Its
return code gates the continuation of the process, or causes its exit.
Also add an arbitrary data pointer to the subprocess_info struct allowing
for data to be passed from the caller to the new process, and the
subsequent cleanup process

Also, use this patch to cleanup the cleanup function.  It currently takes
an argp and envp pointer for freeing, which is ugly.  Lets instead just
make the subprocess_info structure public, and pass that to the cleanup
and init routines

9 years agosignals: check_kill_permission(): don't check creds if same_thread_group()
Oleg Nesterov [Wed, 26 May 2010 21:42:54 +0000]
signals: check_kill_permission(): don't check creds if same_thread_group()

Andrew Tridgell reports that aio_read(SIGEV_SIGNAL) can fail if the
notification from the helper thread races with setresuid(), see
http://samba.org/~tridge/junkcode/aio_uid.c

This happens because check_kill_permission() doesn't permit sending a
signal to the task with the different cred->xids.  But there is not any
security reason to check ->cred's when the task sends a signal (private or
group-wide) to its sub-thread.  Whatever we do, any thread can bypass all
security checks and send SIGKILL to all threads, or it can block a signal
SIG and do kill(gettid(), SIG) to deliver this signal to another
sub-thread.  Not to mention that CLONE_THREAD implies CLONE_VM.

Change check_kill_permission() to avoid the credentials check when the
sender and the target are from the same thread group.

Also, move "cred = current_cred()" down to avoid calling get_current()
twice.

Note: David Howells pointed out we could relax this even more, the
CLONE_SIGHAND (without CLONE_THREAD) case probably does not need
these checks too.

Roland said:
: The glibc (libpthread) that does set*id across threads has
: been in use for a while (2.3.4?), probably in distro's using kernels as old
: or older than any active -stable streams.  In the race in question, this
: kernel bug is breaking valid POSIX application expectations.

9 years agocpusets: new round-robin rotor for SLAB allocations
Jack Steiner [Wed, 26 May 2010 21:42:49 +0000]
cpusets: new round-robin rotor for SLAB allocations

We have observed several workloads running on multi-node systems where
memory is assigned unevenly across the nodes in the system.  There are
numerous reasons for this but one is the round-robin rotor in
cpuset_mem_spread_node().

For example, a simple test that writes a multi-page file will allocate
pages on nodes 0 2 4 6 ...  Odd nodes are skipped.  (Sometimes it
allocates on odd nodes & skips even nodes).

An example is shown below.  The program "lfile" writes a file consisting
of 10 pages.  The program then mmaps the file & uses get_mempolicy(...,
MPOL_F_NODE) to determine the nodes where the file pages were allocated.
The output is shown below:

# ./lfile
 allocated on nodes: 2 4 6 0 1 2 6 0 2

There is a single rotor that is used for allocating both file pages & slab
pages.  Writing the file allocates both a data page & a slab page
(buffer_head).  This advances the RR rotor 2 nodes for each page
allocated.

A quick confirmation seems to confirm this is the cause of the uneven
allocation:

# echo 0 >/dev/cpuset/memory_spread_slab
# ./lfile
 allocated on nodes: 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5

This patch introduces a second rotor that is used for slab allocations.

memcg: fix mis-accounting of file mapped racy with migration

FILE_MAPPED per memcg of migrated file cache is not properly updated,
because our hook in page_add_file_rmap() can't know to which memcg
FILE_MAPPED should be counted.

Basically, this patch is for fixing the bug but includes some big changes
to fix up other messes.

Now, at migrating mapped file, events happen in following sequence.

 1. allocate a new page.
 2. get memcg of an old page.
 3. charge ageinst a new page before migration. But at this point,
    no changes to new page's page_cgroup, no commit for the charge.
    (IOW, PCG_USED bit is not set.)
 4. page migration replaces radix-tree, old-page and new-page.
 5. page migration remaps the new page if the old page was mapped.
 6. Here, the new page is unlocked.
 7. memcg commits the charge for newpage, Mark the new page's page_cgroup
    as PCG_USED.

Because "commit" happens after page-remap, we can count FILE_MAPPED
at "5", because we should avoid to trust page_cgroup->mem_cgroup.
if PCG_USED bit is unset.
(Note: memcg's LRU removal code does that but LRU-isolation logic is used
 for helping it. When we overwrite page_cgroup->mem_cgroup, page_cgroup is
 not on LRU or page_cgroup->mem_cgroup is NULL.)

We can lose file_mapped accounting information at 5 because FILE_MAPPED
is updated only when mapcount changes 0->1. So we should catch it.

BTW, historically, above implemntation comes from migration-failure
of anonymous page. Because we charge both of old page and new page
with mapcount=0, we can't catch
  - the page is really freed before remap.
  - migration fails but it's freed before remap
or .....corner cases.

New migration sequence with memcg is:

 1. allocate a new page.
 2. mark PageCgroupMigration to the old page.
 3. charge against a new page onto the old page's memcg. (here, new page's pc
    is marked as PageCgroupUsed.)
 4. page migration replaces radix-tree, page table, etc...
 5. At remapping, new page's page_cgroup is now makrked as "USED"
    We can catch 0->1 event and FILE_MAPPED will be properly updated.

    And we can catch SWAPOUT event after unlock this and freeing this
    page by unmap() can be caught.

 7. Clear PageCgroupMigration of the old page.

So, FILE_MAPPED will be correctly updated.

Then, for what MIGRATION flag is ?
  Without it, at migration failure, we may have to charge old page again
  because it may be fully unmapped. "charge" means that we have to dive into
  memory reclaim or something complated. So, it's better to avoid
  charge it again. Before this patch, __commit_charge() was working for
  both of the old/new page and fixed up all. But this technique has some
  racy condtion around FILE_MAPPED and SWAPOUT etc...
  Now, the kernel use MIGRATION flag and don't uncharge old page until
  the end of migration.

I hope this change will make memcg's page migration much simpler.  This
page migration has caused several troubles.  Worth to add a flag for
simplification.

9 years agomm: remove unnecessary use of atomic
Phil Carmody [Wed, 26 May 2010 21:42:42 +0000]
mm: remove unnecessary use of atomic

The bottom 4 hunks are atomically changing memory to which there are no
aliases as it's freshly allocated, so there's no need to use atomic
operations.

The other hunks are just atomic_read and atomic_set, and do not involve
any read-modify-write.  The use of atomic_{read,set} doesn't prevent a
read/write or write/write race, so if a race were possible (I'm not saying
one is), then it would still be there even with atomic_set.

9 years agomemcg: move charge of file pages
Daisuke Nishimura [Wed, 26 May 2010 21:42:39 +0000]
memcg: move charge of file pages

This patch adds support for moving charge of file pages, which include
normal file, tmpfs file and swaps of tmpfs file.  It's enabled by setting
bit 1 of <target cgroup>/memory.move_charge_at_immigrate.

Unlike the case of anonymous pages, file pages(and swaps) in the range
mmapped by the task will be moved even if the task hasn't done page fault,
i.e.  they might not be the task's "RSS", but other task's "RSS" that maps
the same file.  And mapcount of the page is ignored(the page can be moved
even if page_mapcount(page) > 1).  So, conditions that the page/swap
should be met to be moved is that it must be in the range mmapped by the
target task and it must be charged to the old cgroup.

- enlarge limit, add more swap.

9 years agoufs: permit mounting of BorderWare filesystems
Thomas Stewart [Wed, 26 May 2010 21:42:33 +0000]
ufs: permit mounting of BorderWare filesystems

I recently had to recover some files from an old broken machine that was
running BorderWare Document Gateway.  It's basically a drop in web server
for sharing files.  From the look of the init process and using strings on
of a few files it seems to be based on FreeBSD 3.3.

The process turned out to be more difficult than I imagined, but to cut a
long story short BorderWare in their wisdom use a nonstandard magic number
in their UFS (ufstype=44bsd) file systems.  Thus Linux refuses to mount
the file systems in order to recover the data.  After a bit of hunting I
was able to make a quick fix to fs/ufs/super.c in order to detect the new
magic number.

I assume that this number is the same for all installations.  It's quite
easy to find out from ufs_fs.h.  The superblock sits 8k into the block
device and the magic number its 1372 bytes into the superblock struct.

9 years agogpiolib: introduce set_debounce method
Felipe Balbi [Wed, 26 May 2010 21:42:23 +0000]
gpiolib: introduce set_debounce method

A few architectures, like OMAP, allow you to set a debouncing time for the
gpio before generating the IRQ.  Teach gpiolib about that.

Mark said:
: This would be generally useful for embedded systems, especially where
: the interrupt concerned is a wake source.  It allows drivers to avoid
: spurious interrupts from noisy sources so if the hardware supports it
: the driver can avoid having to explicitly wait for the signal to become
: stable and software has to cope with fewer events.  We've lived without
: it for quite some time, though.

David said:
: I looked at adding debounce support to the generic GPIO calls (and thus
: gpiolib) some time back, but decided against it.  I forget why at this
: time (check list archives) but it wasn't because of lack of utility in
: certain contexts.
:
: One thing to watch out for is just how variable the hardware capabilities
: are.  Atmel GPIOs have something like a fixed number of 32K clock cycles
: for debounce, twl4030 had something odd, OMAPs were more like the Atmel
: chips but with a different clock.  In some cases debouncing had to be
: ganged, not per-GPIO.  And so forth.

sdio: add new function for RAW (Read after Write) operation

SDIO specification allows RAW (Read after Write) operation using
IO_RW_DIRECT command (CMD52) by setting the RAW bit.  This operation is
similar to ordinary read/write commands, except that both write and read
are performed using single command/response pair.  The Linux SDIO layer
already supports this internaly, only external function is missing for
drivers to make use, which is added by this patch.

This type of command is required to implement proper power save mode
support in wl1251 wifi driver.

Android has similar patch for G1 in it's tree for the same reason:

mmc: OMAP HS-MMC: convert to dev_pm_ops

Convert PM operations to use dev_pm_ops.  This will facilitate the runtime
PM coversion which will add to dev_pm_ops hooks.

Note that dev_pm_ops version of the suspend hook no longer takes a 'state'
argument.  However, the MMC core function mmc_suspend_host() still takes a
'state' argument, but it is unused, so a dummy state variable was created
to pass to the MMC core.

In the future, the MMC core should be converted to drop this state
argument and the rest of the MMC drivers could be easily converted to
dev_pm_ops as well.

omap_hsmmc: improve interrupt synchronisation

The following changes were needed:
- do not use in_interrupt() because it will not work
with threaded interrupts

In addition, the following improvements were made:
- ensure DMA is unmapped only after the final DMA interrupt
- ensure a request is completed only after the final DMA interrupt
- disable controller interrupts when a request is not in progress
- remove the spin-lock protecting the start of a new request from
an unexpected interrupt because the locking was complicated and
a 'req_in_progress' flag suffices (since the spin-lock only defers
the unexpected interrupts anyway)
- instead use the spin-lock to protect the MMC interrupt handler
from the DMA interrupt handler
- remove the semaphore preventing DMA from being started while
the previous DMA is still in progress - the other changes make that
impossible, so it is now a BUG_ON condition
- ensure the controller interrupt status is clear before exiting
the interrrupt handler

In general, these changes make the code safer but do not fix any specific
bugs so backporting is not necessary.
