14 years ago[PATCH] s390: overflow in sched_clock
Jan Glauber [Wed, 1 Feb 2006 11:06:32 +0000]
[PATCH] s390: overflow in sched_clock

The least significant bit of the TOD clock value returned by get_clock
is the 4096th part of a microsecond. To get to nanoseconds the value
needs to be divided by 4096 and multiplied with 1000.

The current method multiplies first and then shifts the value to make the
result as precise as possible.  The disadvantage is that the multiplication
with 1000 will overflow shortly after 52 days.  sched_clock is used by the
scheduler for time stamp deltas, if an overflow occurs between two time stamps
the scheduler will get confused.

With the patch the problem occurs only after approx.  one year, so the chance
to run into this overflow is extremly low.

[PATCH] uml: avoid "CONFIG_NR_CPUS undeclared" bogus error messages

      Olaf Hering <olh@suse.de>

Olaf reported UML doesn't build for him with a clear analisys of what happened
- we're using NR_CPUS in files linked against glibc headers.  Seems like it
defines CONFIG_SMP but not CONFIG_NR_CPUS, so we get CONFIG_NR_CPUS
undeclared.

The fix is to move the declaration away from that header file and move it in
asm-um headers, and to add that header where needed.

The C99 initialization, with GCC's bad handling, for 6K wide structs (which

Note that .name = { '\0' } translates to memset(->name, 0, '->name' size) - I verified
this with GCC's docs and a testprogram.

14 years ago[PATCH] VMSPLIT config options
Mark Lord [Wed, 1 Feb 2006 11:06:11 +0000]
[PATCH] VMSPLIT config options

Enable selection of different user/kernel VM splits for i386, including an
optimized mode for 1GB physical RAM, which gives the kernel a direct (non
HIGHMEM) mapping to the entire 1GB rather than just the first 896MB.

There is a similarly a similarly optimized mode for machines with exactly 2GB
of physical RAM.

This can speed up the kernel by avoiding having to create/destroy temporary
HIGHMEM mappings, and by not having to include HIGHMEM support at all on such
machines.  The flip side is that there's less virtual addressing left for
userspace in these alternatives, and some binary-only kernel modules may
misbehave unless rebuilt with the same VMSPLIT option as the main kernel
image.

Original idea/patch from Jens Axboe, modified based on suggestions from Linus
et al.

[PATCH] slab: cache_estimate cleanup

Clean up cache_estimate() in mm/slab.c and improves the algorithm from O(n) to
O(1).  We first calculate the maximum number of objects a slab can hold after
struct slab and kmem_bufctl_t for each object has been given enough space.
After that, to respect alignment rules, we decrease the number of objects if
necessary.  As required padding is at most align-1 and memory of obj_size is
at least align, it is always enough to decrease number of objects by one.

The optimization was originally made by Balbir Singh with more improvements
from Steven Rostedt.  Manfred Spraul provider further modifications: no loop
at all for the off-slab case and added comments to explain the background.

14 years ago[PATCH] Direct Migration V9: Avoid writeback / page_migrate() method
Christoph Lameter [Wed, 1 Feb 2006 11:05:41 +0000]
[PATCH] Direct Migration V9: Avoid writeback / page_migrate() method

Migrate a page with buffers without requiring writeback

This introduces a new address space operation migratepage() that may be used
by a filesystem to implement its own version of page migration.

A version is provided that migrates buffers attached to pages.  Some
filesystems (ext2, ext3, xfs) are modified to utilize this feature.

The swapper address space operation are modified so that a regular
migrate_page() will occur for anonymous pages without writeback (migrate_pages
forces every anonymous page to have a swap entry).

Add direct migration support with fall back to swap.

Direct migration support on top of the swap based page migration facility.

This allows the direct migration of anonymous pages and the migration of file

Fall back to swap out if necessary.

was restructured, documented and simplified as much as possible.

Note that an additional patch that defines the migrate_page() method for

[PATCH] Reclaim slab during zone reclaim

If large amounts of zone memory are used by empty slabs then zone_reclaim
becomes uneffective.  This patch shakes the slab a bit.

The problem with this patch is that the slab reclaim is not containable to a
zone.  Thus slab reclaim may affect the whole system and be extremely slow.
This also means that we cannot determine how many pages were freed in this
zone.  Thus we need to go off node for at least one allocation.

The functionality is disabled by default.

We could modify the shrinkers to take a zone parameter but that would be quite
invasive.  Better ideas are welcome.

14 years ago[PATCH] Zone reclaim: Allow modification of zone reclaim behavior
Christoph Lameter [Wed, 1 Feb 2006 11:05:34 +0000]
[PATCH] Zone reclaim: Allow modification of zone reclaim behavior

In some situations one may want zone_reclaim to behave differently.  For
example a process writing large amounts of memory will spew unto other nodes
to cache the writes if many pages in a zone become dirty.  This may impact the
performance of processes running on other nodes.

Allowing writes during reclaim puts a stop to that behavior and throttles the
process by restricting the pages to the local zone.

Similarly one may want to contain processes to local memory by enabling
regular swap behavior during zone_reclaim.  Off node memory allocation can
then be controlled through memory policies and cpusets.

Christoph Lameter [Wed, 1 Feb 2006 11:05:33 +0000]
[PATCH] zone_reclaim: configurable off node allocation period.

Currently the zone_reclaim code has a fixed window of 30 seconds of off node
allocations should a local zone have no unused pagecache pages left.  Reclaim
will be attempted again after this timeout period to avoid repeated useless
scans for memory.  This is also useful to established sufficiently large off
node allocation chunks to relieve the local node.

It may be beneficial to adjust that time period for some special situations.
For example if memory use was exceeding node capacity one may want to give up
for longer periods of time.  If memory spikes intermittendly then one may want
to shorten the time period to reduce the number of off node allocations.

This patch allows just that....

using 32-bit accesses.  The naming is double-underscored to make it clear
that it does not guarantee write ordering, nor does it perform a memory
barrier afterwards; the kernel doc also explicitly states this.  This style
of access is required by some devices.

This change also introduces include/linux/io.h, at Andrew's suggestion.  It
only has one occupant at the moment, but is a logical destination for
oft-replicated contents of include/asm-*/{io,iomap}.h to migrate to.
