9 years agoget rid of the magic around f_count in aio
Al Viro [Wed, 26 May 2010 19:13:55 +0000]
get rid of the magic around f_count in aio

__aio_put_req() plays sick games with file refcount.  What
it wants is fput() from atomic context; it's almost always
done with f_count > 1, so they only have to deal with delayed
work in rare cases when their reference happens to be the
last one.  Current code decrements f_count and if it hasn't
hit 0, everything is fine.  Otherwise it keeps a pointer
to struct file (with zero f_count!) around and has delayed
work do __fput() on it.

Better way to do it: use atomic_long_add_unless( , -1, 1)
instead of !atomic_long_dec_and_test().  IOW, decrement it
only if it's not the last reference, leave refcount alone
if it was.  And use normal fput() in delayed work.

I've made that atomic_long_add_unless call a new helper -
fput_atomic().  Drops a reference to file if it's safe to
do in atomic (i.e. if that's not the last one), tells if
it had been able to do that.  aio.c converted to it, __fput()
use is gone.  req->ki_file *always* contributes to refcount
now.  And __fput() became static.

9 years agoVFS: fix recent breakage of FS_REVAL_DOT
Neil Brown [Mon, 24 May 2010 06:57:56 +0000]
VFS: fix recent breakage of FS_REVAL_DOT

Commit 1f36f774b22a0ceb7dd33eca626746c81a97b6a5 broke FS_REVAL_DOT semantics.

In particular, before this patch, the command
   ls -l
in an NFS mounted directory would always check if the directory on the server
had changed and if so would flush and refill the pagecache for the dir.
After this patch, the same "ls -l" will repeatedly return stale date until
the cached attributes for the directory time out.

The following patch fixes this by ensuring the d_revalidate is called by
do_last when "." is being looked-up.
link_path_walk has already called d_revalidate, but in that case LOOKUP_OPEN
is not set so nfs_lookup_verify_inode chooses not to do any validation.

The following patch restores the original behaviour.

hwmon: (asus_atk0110) Don't load if ACPI resources aren't enforced

When the user passes the kernel parameter acpi_enforce_resources=lax,
the ACPI resources are no longer protected, so a native driver can
make use of them. In that case, we do not want the asus_atk0110 to be
loaded. Unfortunately, this driver loads automatically due to its
MODULE_DEVICE_TABLE, so the user ends up with two drivers loaded for
the same device - this is bad.

So I suggest that we prevent the asus_atk0110 driver from loading if
acpi_enforce_resources=lax.

a rathole, I have made an attempt to rewrite the doc at a slightly higher

out-of-tree man pages that cover the details.

9 years agonuma: slab: use numa_mem_id() for slab local memory node
Lee Schermerhorn [Wed, 26 May 2010 21:45:03 +0000]
numa: slab: use numa_mem_id() for slab local memory node

Example usage of generic "numa_mem_id()":

The mainline slab code, since ~ 2.6.19, does not handle memoryless nodes
well.  Specifically, the "fast path"--____cache_alloc()--will never
succeed as slab doesn't cache offnode object on the per cpu queues, and
for memoryless nodes, all memory will be "off node" relative to
numa_node_id().  This adds significant overhead to all kmem cache
allocations, incurring a significant regression relative to earlier
kernels [from before slab.c was reorganized].

This patch uses the generic topology function "numa_mem_id()" to return
the "effective local memory node" for the calling context.  This is the
first node in the local node's generic fallback zonelist-- the same node
that "local" mempolicy-based allocations would use.  This lets slab cache
these "local" allocations and avoid fallback/refill on every allocation.

N.B.: Slab will need to handle node and memory hotplug events that could
change the value returned by numa_mem_id() for any given node if recent
changes to address memory hotplug don't already address this.  E.g., flush
all per cpu slab queues before rebuilding the zonelists while the
"machine" is held in the stopped state.

Performance impact on "hackbench 400 process 200"

The slowdown of the patched kernel from ~12 sec to ~28 seconds when
configured with memoryless nodes is the result of all cpus allocating from
a single node's mm pagepool.  The cache lines of the single node are
distributed/interleaved over the memory of the real physical nodes, but
the zone lock, list heads, ...  of the single node with memory still each
live in a single cache line that is accessed from all processors.

Enable 'HAVE_MEMORYLESS_NODES' by default when NUMA configured on ia64.
Initialize percpu 'numa_mem' variable when starting secondary cpus.
Generic initialization will handle the boot cpu.

Nothing uses 'numa_mem_id()' yet.  Subsequent patch with modify slab to

9 years agonuma: introduce numa_mem_id()- effective local memory node id
Lee Schermerhorn [Wed, 26 May 2010 21:45:00 +0000]
numa: introduce numa_mem_id()- effective local memory node id

Introduce numa_mem_id(), based on generic percpu variable infrastructure
to track "nearest node with memory" for archs that support memoryless
nodes.

Define API in <linux/topology.h> when CONFIG_HAVE_MEMORYLESS_NODES
defined, else stubs.  Architectures will define HAVE_MEMORYLESS_NODES
if/when they support them.

Archs can override definitions of:

numa_mem_id() - returns node number of "local memory" node
set_numa_mem() - initialize [this cpus'] per cpu variable 'numa_mem'
cpu_to_mem()  - return numa_mem for specified cpu; may be used as lvalue

Generic initialization of 'numa_mem' occurs in __build_all_zonelists().
This will initialize the boot cpu at boot time, and all cpus on change of
numa_zonelist_order, or when node or memory hot-plug requires zonelist
rebuild.  Archs that support memoryless nodes will need to initialize
'numa_mem' for secondary cpus as they're brought on-line.

9 years agonuma: add generic percpu var numa_node_id() implementation
Lee Schermerhorn [Wed, 26 May 2010 21:44:56 +0000]
numa: add generic percpu var numa_node_id() implementation

Rework the generic version of the numa_node_id() function to use the new
generic percpu variable infrastructure.

Guard the new implementation with a new config option:

        CONFIG_USE_PERCPU_NUMA_NODE_ID.

Archs which support this new implemention will default this option to 'y'
when NUMA is configured.  This config option could be removed if/when all
archs switch over to the generic percpu implementation of numa_node_id().
Arch support involves:

  1) converting any existing per cpu variable implementations to use
     this implementation.  x86_64 is an instance of such an arch.
  2) archs that don't use a per cpu variable for numa_node_id() will
     need to initialize the new per cpu variable "numa_node" as cpus
     are brought on-line.  ia64 is an example.
  3) Defining USE_PERCPU_NUMA_NODE_ID in arch dependent Kconfig--e.g.,
     when NUMA is configured.  This is required because I have
     retained the old implementation by default to allow archs to
     be modified incrementally, as desired.

Subsequent patches will convert x86_64 and ia64 to use this implemenation.

Documentation/filesystems/Locking: update documentation on llseek() wrt BKL

The inode's i_size is not protected by the big kernel lock.  Therefore it
does not make sense to recommend taking the BKL in filesystems llseek
operations.  Instead it should use the inode's mutex or use just use
i_size_read() instead.  Add a note that this is not protecting
file->f_pos.

9 years agofs/: do not fallback to default_llseek() when readdir() uses BKL
jan Blunck [Wed, 26 May 2010 21:44:53 +0000]
fs/: do not fallback to default_llseek() when readdir() uses BKL

Do not use the fallback default_llseek() if the readdir operation of the
filesystem still uses the big kernel lock.

Since llseek() modifies
file->f_pos of the directory directly it may need locking to not confuse
readdir which usually uses file->f_pos directly as well

Since the special characteristics of the BKL (unlocked on schedule) are
not necessary in this case, the inode mutex can be used for locking as
provided by generic_file_llseek().  This is only possible since all
filesystems, except reiserfs, either use a directory as a flat file or
with disk address offsets.  Reiserfs on the other hand uses a 32bit hash
off the filename as the offset so generic_file_llseek() can get used as
well since the hash is always smaller than sb->s_maxbytes (= (512 << 32) -
blocksize).

It's clearer than defining ARCH_HAS_SG_CHAIN asm-generic/scatterlist.h and
undefing it in arhictectures that don't support it.

asm-generic: remove ISA_DMA_THRESHOLD in scatterlist.h

This is the first half of the attempt to use asm-generic/scatterlist.h
on every architecture.

There are only two ways to define scatterlist structure. So it's easy
to convert every architecture to use asm-generic/scatterlist.h.

This patch:

The trick for ISA_DMA_THRESHOLD in asm-generic/scatterlist.h doesn't work
for powerpc.  This lets architectures defin ISA_DMA_THRESHOLD.

Hopefully, we can remove ISA_DMA_THRESHOLD in the future; we can do better
to decide if the bouncing is necessary or not.

aio: fix the compat vectored operations

The aio compat code was not converting the struct iovecs from 32bit to
64bit pointers, causing either EINVAL to be returned from io_getevents, or
EFAULT as the result of the I/O.  This patch passes a compat flag to
io_submit to signal that pointer conversion is necessary for a given iocb
array.

A variant of this was tested by Michael Tokarev.  I have also updated the
libaio test harness to exercise this code path with good success.
Further, I grabbed a copy of ltp and ran the

on my 64bit system).  All seems happy, but extra eyes on this would be

panic: call console_verbose() in panic

Most distros turn the console verbosity down and that means a backtrace
after a panic never makes it to the console.  I assume we haven't seen
this because a panic is often preceeded by an oops which will have called
console_verbose.  There are however a lot of places we call panic
directly, and they are broken.

lib/random32: export pseudo-random number generator for modules

This patch moves the definition of struct rnd_state and the inline
__seed() function to linux/random.h.  It renames the static __random32()
function to prandom32() and exports it for use in modules.

prandom32() is useful as a privately-seeded pseudo random number generator
that can give the same result every time it is initialized.

For FCoE FC-BB-6 VN2VN mode self-selected unique FC address generation, we
need an pseudo-random number generator seeded with the 64-bit world-wide
port name.  A truly random generator or one seeded with randomness won't
do because the same sequence of numbers should be generated each time we
boot or the link comes up.

A prandom32_seed() inline function is added to the header file.  It is
inlined not for speed, but so the function won't be expanded in the base
kernel, but only in the module that uses it.
