11 years agoswap: rework map_swap_page() again
Lee Schermerhorn [Tue, 15 Dec 2009 01:58:49 +0000]
swap: rework map_swap_page() again

Seems that page_io.c doesn't really need to know that page_private(page)
is the swp_entry 'val'.  Rework map_swap_page() to do what its name says
and map a page to a page offset in the swap space.

The only other caller of map_swap_page() is internal to mm/swapfile.c and
it does want to map a swap entry to the 'sector'.  So rename
map_swap_page() to map_swap_entry(), make it 'static' and and implement
map_swap_page() as a wrapper around that.

11 years agoswap_info: swap count continuations
Hugh Dickins [Tue, 15 Dec 2009 01:58:46 +0000]
swap_info: swap count continuations

Swap is duplicated (reference count incremented by one) whenever the same
swap page is inserted into another mm (when forking finds a swap entry in
place of a pte, or when reclaim unmaps a pte to insert the swap entry).

swap_info_struct's vmalloc'ed swap_map is the array of these reference
counts: but what happens when the unsigned short (or unsigned char since
the preceding patch) is full? (and its high bit is kept for a cache flag)

We then lose track of it, never freeing, leaving it in use until swapoff:
at which point we _hope_ that a single pass will have found all instances,
assume there are no more, and will lose user data if we're wrong.

Swapping of KSM pages has not yet been enabled; but it is implemented,
and makes it very easy for a user to overflow the maximum swap count:
possible with ordinary process pages, but unlikely, even when pid_max
has been raised from PID_MAX_DEFAULT.

This patch implements swap count continuations: when the count overflows,
a continuation page is allocated and linked to the original vmalloc'ed
map page, and this used to hold the continuation counts for that entry
and its neighbours.  These continuation pages are seldom referenced:
the common paths all work on the original swap_map, only referring to
a continuation page when the low "digit" of a count is incremented or
decremented through SWAP_MAP_MAX.

That does need a "type" field in the structure: pack it as a char with
next type and short prio (aha, char is unsigned by default on PowerPC).
Use the (admittedly peculiar) name "type" throughout for this index.

/proc/swaps does not take swap_lock: I wouldn't want it to, but do take
care with barriers when adding a new item to the array (never removed).

11 years agomm: add gfp flags for NODEMASK_ALLOC slab allocations
David Rientjes [Tue, 15 Dec 2009 01:58:38 +0000]
mm: add gfp flags for NODEMASK_ALLOC slab allocations

Objects passed to NODEMASK_ALLOC() are relatively small in size and are
backed by slab caches that are not of large order, traditionally never
greater than PAGE_ALLOC_COSTLY_ORDER.

Thus, using GFP_KERNEL for these allocations on large machines when
CONFIG_NODES_SHIFT > 8 will cause the page allocator to loop endlessly in
the allocation attempt, each time invoking both direct reclaim or the oom
killer.

This is of particular interest when using NODEMASK_ALLOC() from a
mempolicy context (either directly in mm/mempolicy.c or the mempolicy
constrained hugetlb allocations) since the oom killer always kills current
when allocations are constrained by mempolicies.  So for all present use
cases in the kernel, current would end up being oom killed when direct
reclaim fails.  That would allow the NODEMASK_ALLOC() to succeed but
current would have sacrificed itself upon returning.

This patch adds gfp flags to NODEMASK_ALLOC() to pass to kmalloc() on
CONFIG_NODES_SHIFT > 8; this parameter is a nop on other configurations.
All current use cases either directly from hugetlb code or indirectly via
NODEMASK_SCRATCH() union __GFP_NORETRY to avoid direct reclaim and the oom
killer when the slab allocator needs to allocate additional pages.

The side-effect of this change is that all current use cases of either
NODEMASK_ALLOC() or NODEMASK_SCRATCH() need appropriate -ENOMEM handling
when the allocation fails (never for CONFIG_NODES_SHIFT <= 8).  All
current use cases were audited and do have appropriate error handling at
this time.

/sys/devices/system/node/node<ID>/hugepages/hugepages-<size>/
nr_hugepages       - r/w
free_huge_pages    - r/o
surplus_huge_pages - r/o

The patch attempts to re-use/share as much of the existing global hstate
attribute initialization and handling, and the "nodes_allowed" constraint
processing as possible.

Calling set_max_huge_pages() with no node indicates a change to global
hstate parameters.  In this case, any non-default task mempolicy will be
used to generate the nodes_allowed mask.  A valid node id indicates an
update to that node's hstate parameters, and the count argument specifies
the target count for the specified node.  From this info, we compute the
target global count for the hstate and construct a nodes_allowed node mask
contain only the specified node.

Setting the node specific nr_hugepages via the per node attribute
effectively ignores any task mempolicy or cpuset constraints.

11 years agohugetlb: derive huge pages nodes allowed from task mempolicy
Lee Schermerhorn [Tue, 15 Dec 2009 01:58:21 +0000]
hugetlb: derive huge pages nodes allowed from task mempolicy

This patch derives a "nodes_allowed" node mask from the numa mempolicy of
the task modifying the number of persistent huge pages to control the
allocation, freeing and adjusting of surplus huge pages when the pool page
count is modified via the new sysctl or sysfs attribute
"nr_hugepages_mempolicy".  The nodes_allowed mask is derived as follows:

* For "default" [NULL] task mempolicy, a NULL nodemask_t pointer
  is produced.  This will cause the hugetlb subsystem to use
  node_online_map as the "nodes_allowed".  This preserves the
  behavior before this patch.
* For "preferred" mempolicy, including explicit local allocation,
  a nodemask with the single preferred node will be produced.
  "local" policy will NOT track any internode migrations of the
  task adjusting nr_hugepages.
* For "bind" and "interleave" policy, the mempolicy's nodemask
  will be used.
* Other than to inform the construction of the nodes_allowed node
  mask, the actual mempolicy mode is ignored.  That is, all modes
  behave like interleave over the resulting nodes_allowed mask
  with no "fallback".

See the updated documentation [next patch] for more information
about the implications of this patch.

Examples:

Starting with:

Node 0 HugePages_Total:     0
Node 1 HugePages_Total:     0
Node 2 HugePages_Total:     0
Node 3 HugePages_Total:     0

Default behavior [with or without this patch] balances persistent
hugepage allocation across nodes [with sufficient contiguous memory]:

sysctl vm.nr_hugepages[_mempolicy]=32

yields:

Node 0 HugePages_Total:     8
Node 1 HugePages_Total:     8
Node 2 HugePages_Total:     8
Node 3 HugePages_Total:     8

Of course, we only have nr_hugepages_mempolicy with the patch,
but with default mempolicy, nr_hugepages_mempolicy behaves the
same as nr_hugepages.

Applying mempolicy--e.g., with numactl [using '-m' a.k.a.
'--membind' because it allows multiple nodes to be specified
and it's easy to type]--we can allocate huge pages on
individual nodes or sets of nodes.  So, starting from the
condition above, with 8 huge pages per node, add 8 more to
node 2 using:

numactl -m 2 sysctl vm.nr_hugepages_mempolicy=40

This yields:

Node 0 HugePages_Total:     8
Node 1 HugePages_Total:     8
Node 2 HugePages_Total:    16
Node 3 HugePages_Total:     8

The incremental 8 huge pages were restricted to node 2 by the
specified mempolicy.

Similarly, we can use mempolicy to free persistent huge pages
from specified nodes:

numactl -m 0,1 sysctl vm.nr_hugepages_mempolicy=32

yields:

Node 0 HugePages_Total:     4
Node 1 HugePages_Total:     4
Node 2 HugePages_Total:    16
Node 3 HugePages_Total:     8

The 8 huge pages freed were balanced over nodes 0 and 1.

11 years agohugetlb: add nodemask arg to huge page alloc, free and surplus adjust functions
Lee Schermerhorn [Tue, 15 Dec 2009 01:58:16 +0000]
hugetlb: add nodemask arg to huge page alloc, free and surplus adjust functions

In preparation for constraining huge page allocation and freeing by the
controlling task's numa mempolicy, add a "nodes_allowed" nodemask pointer
to the allocate, free and surplus adjustment functions.  For now, pass
NULL to indicate default behavior--i.e., use node_online_map.  A
subsqeuent patch will derive a non-default mask from the controlling
task's numa mempolicy.

Note that this method of updating the global hstate nr_hugepages under the
constraint of a nodemask simplifies keeping the global state
consistent--especially the number of persistent and surplus pages relative
to reservations and overcommit limits.  There are undoubtedly other ways
to do this, but this works for both interfaces: mempolicy and per node
attributes.

11 years agonodemask: make NODEMASK_ALLOC more general
David Rientjes [Tue, 15 Dec 2009 01:58:13 +0000]
nodemask: make NODEMASK_ALLOC more general

This is a series of patches to provide control over the location of the
allocation and freeing of persistent huge pages on a NUMA platform.
Please consider for merging into mmotm.

This series uses two mechanisms to constrain the nodes from which
persistent huge pages are allocated: 1) the task NUMA mempolicy of the
task modifying a new sysctl "nr_hugepages_mempolicy", based on a
suggestion by Mel Gorman; and 2) a subset of the hugepages hstate sysfs
attributes have been added [in V4] to each node system device under:

/sys/devices/node/node[0-9]*/hugepages

The per node attibutes allow direct assignment of a huge page count on a
specific node, regardless of the task's mempolicy or cpuset constraints.

This patch:

NODEMASK_ALLOC(x, m) assumes x is a type of struct, which is unnecessary.
It's perfectly reasonable to use this macro to allocate a nodemask_t,
which is anonymous, either dynamically or on the stack depending on
NODES_SHIFT.

11 years agommap: don't return ENOMEM when mapcount is temporarily exceeded in munmap()

mmap: don't return ENOMEM when mapcount is temporarily exceeded in munmap()

On ia64, the following test program exit abnormally, because glibc thread
library called abort().

 ========================================================
 (gdb) bt
 #0  0xa000000000010620 in __kernel_syscall_via_break ()
 #1  0x20000000003208e0 in raise () from /lib/libc.so.6.1

 #5  0x200000000047ef60 in __clone2 () from /lib/libc.so.6.1
 ========================================================

The fact is, glibc call munmap() when thread exitng time for freeing
stack, and it assume munlock() never fail.  However, munmap() often make
vma splitting and it with many mapcount make -ENOMEM.

Oh well, that's crazy, because stack unmapping never increase mapcount.
The maxcount exceeding is only temporary.  internal temporary exceeding
shouldn't make ENOMEM.

This patch does it.

page-types: exit early when invoked with -d|--describe

On a system with large amount of memory (256GB), invoking page-types can
take quite a long time, which is unreasonable considering the user only
wants a description of the flags:

# time ./page-types -d 0x10
0x0000000000000010 ____D_____________________________ dirty

real 0m34.285s
user 0m1.966s
sys 0m32.313s

This is because we still walk the entire address range.

Exiting early seems like a reasonble solution:

# time ./page-types -d 0x10
0x0000000000000010 ____D_____________________________ dirty

real 0m0.007s
user 0m0.001s

Alex Chiang [Tue, 15 Dec 2009 01:57:52 +0000]
page-types: learn to describe flags directly from command line

Teach page-types to describe page flags directly from the command line.

Why is this useful?  For instance, if you're using memory hotplug and see
this in /var/log/messages:

kernel: removing from LRU failed 3836dd0/1/1e00000000000010

It would be nice to decode those page flags without staring at the source.

Example usage and output:

# Documentation/vm/page-types -d 0x10
0x0000000000000010 ____D_____________________________ dirty

# Documentation/vm/page-types -d anon

11 years agooom: dump stack and VM state when oom killer panics
David Rientjes [Tue, 15 Dec 2009 01:57:47 +0000]
oom: dump stack and VM state when oom killer panics

The oom killer header, including information such as the allocation order
and gfp mask, current's cpuset and memory controller, call trace, and VM
state information is currently only shown when the oom killer has selected
a task to kill.

This information is omitted, however, when the oom killer panics either
because of panic_on_oom sysctl settings or when no killable task was
found.  It is still relevant to know crucial pieces of information such as
the allocation order and VM state when diagnosing such issues, especially
at boot.

This patch displays the oom killer header whenever it panics so that bug
reports can include pertinent information to debug the issue, if possible.

11 years agohfs: fix a potential buffer overflow
Amerigo Wang [Tue, 15 Dec 2009 01:57:37 +0000]
hfs: fix a potential buffer overflow

A specially-crafted Hierarchical File System (HFS) filesystem could cause
a buffer overflow to occur in a process's kernel stack during a memcpy()
call within the hfs_bnode_read() function (at fs/hfs/bnode.c:24).  The
attacker can provide the source buffer and length, and the destination
buffer is a local variable of a fixed length.  This local variable (passed
as "&entry" from fs/hfs/dir.c:112 and allocated on line 60) is stored in
the stack frame of hfs_bnode_read()'s caller, which is hfs_readdir().
Because the hfs_readdir() function executes upon any attempt to read a
directory on the filesystem, it gets called whenever a user attempts to
inspect any filesystem contents.

11 years agoudf: Avoid IO in udf_clear_inode
Jan Kara [Thu, 3 Dec 2009 12:39:28 +0000]
udf: Avoid IO in udf_clear_inode

It is not very good to do IO in udf_clear_inode. First, VFS does not really
expect inode to become dirty there and thus we have to write it ourselves,
second, memory reclaim gets blocked waiting for IO when it does not really
expect it, third, the IO pattern (e.g. on umount) resulting from writes in
udf_clear_inode is bad and it slows down writing a lot.

The reason why UDF needed to do IO in udf_clear_inode is that UDF standard
mandates extent length to exactly match inode size. But when we allocate
extents to a file or directory, we don't really know what exactly the final
file size will be and thus temporarily set it to block boundary and later
truncate it to exact length in udf_clear_inode. Now, this is changed to
truncate to final file size in udf_release_file for regular files. For
directories and symlinks, we do the truncation at the moment when learn
what the final file size will be.

udf: Try harder when looking for VAT inode

Some disks do not contain VAT inode in the last recorded block as required
by the standard but a few blocks earlier (or the number of recorded blocks
is wrong). So look for the VAT inode a bit before the end of the media.

depending on the section it is in.

When building the FRV arch, I now see:

  drivers/built-in.o: In function `pci_apply_final_quirks':
  drivers/pci/quirks.c:2606: relocation truncated to fit: R_FRV_GPREL12 against symbol `pci_dfl_cache_line_size' defined in .devinit.data section in drivers/built-in.o

because the declaration of pci_dfl_cache_line_size in linux/pci.h does not
match the definition in drivers/pci/pci.c.

x86, mce: Thermal monitoring depends on APIC being enabled

Add check if APIC is not disabled since thermal
monitoring depends on it. As only apic gets disabled
we should not try to install "thermal monitor" vector,
print out that thermal monitoring is enabled and etc...

Note that "Intel Correct Machine Check Interrupts" already
has such a check.

Also I decided to not add cpu_has_apic check into
mcheck_intel_therm_init since even if it'll call apic_read on
disabled apic -- it's safe here and allow us to save a few code
bytes.

This fixes the following breakage of the commit
75f1cdf1dda92cae037ec848ae63690d91913eac:

- GART systems that don't AGP with broken BIOS and more than 4GB
  memory are forced to use swiotlb. They can allocate aperture by
  hand and use GART.

- GART systems without GAP must disable GART on shutdown.

- swiotlb usage is forced by the boot option,
  gart_iommu_hole_init() is not called, so we disable GART
  early_gart_iommu_check().

The reason of removal, "replaced by allowdac and no dac

with "allowdac" and "nodac" combination.

The usedac option enables us to stop via_no_dac() setting
forbid_dac to 1. That is, someone who uses VIA bridges can use

microblaze: Support for WB cache

Microblaze version 7.20.d is the first MB version which can be run
on MMU linux. Please do not used previous version because they contain
HW bug.
Based on WB support was necessary to redesign whole cache design.
Microblaze versions from 7.20.a don't need to disable IRQ and cache
before working with them that's why there are special structures for it.

11 years agomicroblaze: Remove the buggy ALLOW_EDIT_AUTO config option
John Williams [Mon, 24 Aug 2009 03:52:32 +0000]
microblaze: Remove the buggy ALLOW_EDIT_AUTO config option

This was intended to allow manual override of CPU settings copied automatically
to Kconfig.auto, however it's problematic for several reasons, but mostly:

  * If the defconfig doesn't have ALLOW_EDIT_AUTO=y, then it's impossible for
    that defconfig to iverride the values in the kernel source tree.  This leads
    to very strange errors where the kernel is compiled with the wrong CPUFLAGS.

Next patch in the series will back out the default in Kconfig.auto to baseline
settings, so a kernel built with no default values will at least boot on any
hardware, just not make use of additional CPU features.
