15 years ago[PATCH] Notifier chain update: API changes
Alan Stern [Mon, 27 Mar 2006 09:16:30 +0000]
[PATCH] Notifier chain update: API changes

The kernel's implementation of notifier chains is unsafe.  There is no
protection against entries being added to or removed from a chain while the
chain is in use.  The issues were discussed in this thread:

    http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-kernel&m=113018709002036&w=2

We noticed that notifier chains in the kernel fall into two basic usage
classes:

"Blocking" chains are always called from a process context
and the callout routines are allowed to sleep;

"Atomic" chains can be called from an atomic context and
the callout routines are not allowed to sleep.

We decided to codify this distinction and make it part of the API.  Therefore
this set of patches introduces three new, parallel APIs: one for blocking
notifiers, one for atomic notifiers, and one for "raw" notifiers (which is
really just the old API under a new name).  New kinds of data structures are
used for the heads of the chains, and new routines are defined for
registration, unregistration, and calling a chain.  The three APIs are
explained in include/linux/notifier.h and their implementation is in
kernel/sys.c.

With atomic and blocking chains, the implementation guarantees that the chain
links will not be corrupted and that chain callers will not get messed up by
entries being added or removed.  For raw chains the implementation provides no
guarantees at all; users of this API must provide their own protections.  (The
idea was that situations may come up where the assumptions of the atomic and
blocking APIs are not appropriate, so it should be possible for users to
handle these things in their own way.)

There are some limitations, which should not be too hard to live with.  For
atomic/blocking chains, registration and unregistration must always be done in
a process context since the chain is protected by a mutex/rwsem.  Also, a
callout routine for a non-raw chain must not try to register or unregister
entries on its own chain.  (This did happen in a couple of places and the code
had to be changed to avoid it.)

Since atomic chains may be called from within an NMI handler, they cannot use
spinlocks for synchronization.  Instead we use RCU.  The overhead falls almost
entirely in the unregister routine, which is okay since unregistration is much
less frequent that calling a chain.

Here is the list of chains that we adjusted and their classifications.  None
of them use the raw API, so for the moment it is only a placeholder.

15 years ago[PATCH] lightweight robust futexes: arch defaults
Ingo Molnar [Mon, 27 Mar 2006 09:16:21 +0000]
[PATCH] lightweight robust futexes: arch defaults

This patchset provides a new (written from scratch) implementation of robust
futexes, called "lightweight robust futexes".  We believe this new
implementation is faster and simpler than the vma-based robust futex solutions
presented before, and we'd like this patchset to be adopted in the upstream
kernel.  This is version 1 of the patchset.

  Background
  ----------

What are robust futexes?  To answer that, we first need to understand what
futexes are: normal futexes are special types of locks that in the
noncontended case can be acquired/released from userspace without having to
enter the kernel.

A futex is in essence a user-space address, e.g.  a 32-bit lock variable
field.  If userspace notices contention (the lock is already owned and someone
else wants to grab it too) then the lock is marked with a value that says
"there's a waiter pending", and the sys_futex(FUTEX_WAIT) syscall is used to
wait for the other guy to release it.  The kernel creates a 'futex queue'
internally, so that it can later on match up the waiter with the waker -
without them having to know about each other.  When the owner thread releases
the futex, it notices (via the variable value) that there were waiter(s)
pending, and does the sys_futex(FUTEX_WAKE) syscall to wake them up.  Once all
waiters have taken and released the lock, the futex is again back to
'uncontended' state, and there's no in-kernel state associated with it.  The
kernel completely forgets that there ever was a futex at that address.  This
method makes futexes very lightweight and scalable.

"Robustness" is about dealing with crashes while holding a lock: if a process
exits prematurely while holding a pthread_mutex_t lock that is also shared
with some other process (e.g.  yum segfaults while holding a pthread_mutex_t,
or yum is kill -9-ed), then waiters for that lock need to be notified that the
last owner of the lock exited in some irregular way.

To solve such types of problems, "robust mutex" userspace APIs were created:
pthread_mutex_lock() returns an error value if the owner exits prematurely -
and the new owner can decide whether the data protected by the lock can be
recovered safely.

There is a big conceptual problem with futex based mutexes though: it is the
kernel that destroys the owner task (e.g.  due to a SEGFAULT), but the kernel
cannot help with the cleanup: if there is no 'futex queue' (and in most cases
there is none, futexes being fast lightweight locks) then the kernel has no
information to clean up after the held lock!  Userspace has no chance to clean
up after the lock either - userspace is the one that crashes, so it has no
opportunity to clean up.  Catch-22.

In practice, when e.g.  yum is kill -9-ed (or segfaults), a system reboot is
needed to release that futex based lock.  This is one of the leading
bugreports against yum.

To solve this problem, 'Robust Futex' patches were created and presented on
lkml: the one written by Todd Kneisel and David Singleton is the most advanced
at the moment.  These patches all tried to extend the futex abstraction by
registering futex-based locks in the kernel - and thus give the kernel a
chance to clean up.

E.g.  in David Singleton's robust-futex-6.patch, there are 3 new syscall
variants to sys_futex(): FUTEX_REGISTER, FUTEX_DEREGISTER and FUTEX_RECOVER.
The kernel attaches such robust futexes to vmas (via
vma->vm_file->f_mapping->robust_head), and at do_exit() time, all vmas are
searched to see whether they have a robust_head set.

Lots of work went into the vma-based robust-futex patch, and recently it has
improved significantly, but unfortunately it still has two fundamental
problems left:

 - they have quite complex locking and race scenarios.  The vma-based
   patches had been pending for years, but they are still not completely
   reliable.

 - they have to scan _every_ vma at sys_exit() time, per thread!

The second disadvantage is a real killer: pthread_exit() takes around 1
microsecond on Linux, but with thousands (or tens of thousands) of vmas every
pthread_exit() takes a millisecond or more, also totally destroying the CPU's
L1 and L2 caches!

This is very much noticeable even for normal process sys_exit_group() calls:
the kernel has to do the vma scanning unconditionally!  (this is because the
kernel has no knowledge about how many robust futexes there are to be cleaned
up, because a robust futex might have been registered in another task, and the
futex variable might have been simply mmap()-ed into this process's address
space).

This huge overhead forced the creation of CONFIG_FUTEX_ROBUST, but worse than
that: the overhead makes robust futexes impractical for any type of generic
Linux distribution.

So it became clear to us, something had to be done.  Last week, when Thomas
Gleixner tried to fix up the vma-based robust futex patch in the -rt tree, he
found a handful of new races and we were talking about it and were analyzing
the situation.  At that point a fundamentally different solution occured to
me.  This patchset (written in the past couple of days) implements that new
solution.  Be warned though - the patchset does things we normally dont do in
Linux, so some might find the approach disturbing.  Parental advice
recommended ;-)

  New approach to robust futexes
  ------------------------------

At the heart of this new approach there is a per-thread private list of robust
locks that userspace is holding (maintained by glibc) - which userspace list
is registered with the kernel via a new syscall [this registration happens at
most once per thread lifetime].  At do_exit() time, the kernel checks this
user-space list: are there any robust futex locks to be cleaned up?

In the common case, at do_exit() time, there is no list registered, so the
cost of robust futexes is just a simple current->robust_list != NULL
comparison.  If the thread has registered a list, then normally the list is
empty.  If the thread/process crashed or terminated in some incorrect way then
the list might be non-empty: in this case the kernel carefully walks the list
[not trusting it], and marks all locks that are owned by this thread with the
FUTEX_OWNER_DEAD bit, and wakes up one waiter (if any).

The list is guaranteed to be private and per-thread, so it's lockless.  There
is one race possible though: since adding to and removing from the list is
done after the futex is acquired by glibc, there is a few instructions window
for the thread (or process) to die there, leaving the futex hung.  To protect
against this possibility, userspace (glibc) also maintains a simple per-thread
'list_op_pending' field, to allow the kernel to clean up if the thread dies
after acquiring the lock, but just before it could have added itself to the
list.  Glibc sets this list_op_pending field before it tries to acquire the
futex, and clears it after the list-add (or list-remove) has finished.

That's all that is needed - all the rest of robust-futex cleanup is done in
userspace [just like with the previous patches].

Ulrich Drepper has implemented the necessary glibc support for this new
mechanism, which fully enables robust mutexes.  (Ulrich plans to commit these
changes to glibc-HEAD later today.)

Key differences of this userspace-list based approach, compared to the vma
based method:

 - it's much, much faster: at thread exit time, there's no need to loop
   over every vma (!), which the VM-based method has to do.  Only a very
   simple 'is the list empty' op is done.

 - no VM changes are needed - 'struct address_space' is left alone.

 - no registration of individual locks is needed: robust mutexes dont need
   any extra per-lock syscalls.  Robust mutexes thus become a very lightweight
   primitive - so they dont force the application designer to do a hard choice
   between performance and robustness - robust mutexes are just as fast.

 - no per-lock kernel allocation happens.

 - no resource limits are needed.

 - no kernel-space recovery call (FUTEX_RECOVER) is needed.

 - the implementation and the locking is "obvious", and there are no
   interactions with the VM.

  Performance
  -----------

I have benchmarked the time needed for the kernel to process a list of 1
million (!) held locks, using the new method [on a 2GHz CPU]:

 - with FUTEX_WAIT set [contended mutex]: 130 msecs
 - without FUTEX_WAIT set [uncontended mutex]: 30 msecs

I have also measured an approach where glibc does the lock notification [which
it currently does for !pshared robust mutexes], and that took 256 msecs -
clearly slower, due to the 1 million FUTEX_WAKE syscalls userspace had to do.

(1 million held locks are unheard of - we expect at most a handful of locks to
be held at a time.  Nevertheless it's nice to know that this approach scales
nicely.)

  Implementation details
  ----------------------

The patch adds two new syscalls: one to register the userspace list, and one
to query the registered list pointer:

 asmlinkage long
 sys_set_robust_list(struct robust_list_head __user *head,
                     size_t len);

 asmlinkage long
 sys_get_robust_list(int pid, struct robust_list_head __user **head_ptr,
                     size_t __user *len_ptr);

List registration is very fast: the pointer is simply stored in
current->robust_list.  [Note that in the future, if robust futexes become
widespread, we could extend sys_clone() to register a robust-list head for new
threads, without the need of another syscall.]

So there is virtually zero overhead for tasks not using robust futexes, and
even for robust futex users, there is only one extra syscall per thread
lifetime, and the cleanup operation, if it happens, is fast and
straightforward.  The kernel doesnt have any internal distinction between
robust and normal futexes.

If a futex is found to be held at exit time, the kernel sets the highest bit
of the futex word:

#define FUTEX_OWNER_DIED        0x40000000

and wakes up the next futex waiter (if any). User-space does the rest of
the cleanup.

Otherwise, robust futexes are acquired by glibc by putting the TID into the
futex field atomically.  Waiters set the FUTEX_WAITERS bit:

#define FUTEX_WAITERS           0x80000000

and the remaining bits are for the TID.

  Testing, architecture support
  -----------------------------

I've tested the new syscalls on x86 and x86_64, and have made sure the parsing
of the userspace list is robust [ ;-) ] even if the list is deliberately
corrupted.

i386 and x86_64 syscalls are wired up at the moment, and Ulrich has tested the
new glibc code (on x86_64 and i386), and it works for his robust-mutex
testcases.

All other architectures should build just fine too - but they wont have the
new syscalls yet.

Architectures need to implement the new futex_atomic_cmpxchg_inuser() inline
function before writing up the syscalls (that function returns -ENOSYS right
now).

This patch:

Add placeholder futex_atomic_cmpxchg_inuser() implementations to every
architecture that supports futexes.  It returns -ENOSYS.

[PATCH] uninline zone helpers

Helper functions for for_each_online_pgdat/for_each_zone look too big to be
inlined.  Speed of these helper macro itself is not very important.  (inner
loops are tend to do more work than this)

This patch make helper function to be out-of-lined.

[PATCH] for_each_online_pgdat: remove sorting pgdat

Because pgdat_list was linked to pgdat_list in *reverse* order, (By default)
some of arch has to sort it by themselves.

for_each_pgdat has gone..for_each_online_pgdat() uses node_online_map, which
doesn't need to be sorted.

This patch removes codes for sorting pgdat.

KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Mon, 27 Mar 2006 09:15:58 +0000]
[PATCH] for_each_online_pgdat: for_each_bootmem

Add a list_head to bootmem_data_t and make bootmems use it.  bootmem list is
sorted by node_boot_start.

Only nodes against which init_bootmem() is called are linked to the list.
(i386 allocates bootmem only from one node(0) not from all online nodes.)

A summary:
 1. for_each_online_pgdat() traverses all *online* nodes.
 2. alloc_bootmem() allocates memory only from initialized-for-bootmem nodes.

KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Mon, 27 Mar 2006 09:15:57 +0000]
[PATCH] define for_each_online_pgdat

This patch defines for_each_online_pgdat() as a replacement of
for_each_pgdat()

Now, online nodes are managed by node_online_map.  But for_each_pgdat()
uses pgdat_link to iterate over all nodes(pgdat).  This means management
structure for online pgdat is duplicated.

I think using node_online_map for for_each_pgdat() is simple and sane
rather ather than pgdat_link.  New macro is named as
for_each_online_pgdat().  Following patch will fix callers of
for_each_pgdat().

The bootmem allocater uses for_each_pgdat() before pgdat initialization.  I
don't think it's sane.  Following patch will fix it.

This patch adds asm-generic/memory_model.h, which includes generic

When CONFIG_OUT_OF_LINE_PFN_TO_PAGE=y, out-of-line functions are
used instead of macro. This is enabled by some archs and  reduces
text size.

[PATCH] sched: new sched domain for representing multi-core

Add a new sched domain for representing multi-core with shared caches
between cores.  Consider a dual package system, each package containing two
cores and with last level cache shared between cores with in a package.  If
there are two runnable processes, with this appended patch those two
processes will be scheduled on different packages.

On such systems, with this patch we have observed 8% perf improvement with
specJBB(2 warehouse) benchmark and 35% improvement with CFP2000 rate(with 2
users).

This new domain will come into play only on multi-core systems with shared
caches.  On other systems, this sched domain will be removed by domain
degeneration code.  This new domain can be also used for implementing power
savings policy (see OLS 2005 CMP kernel scheduler paper for more details..
I will post another patch for power savings policy soon)

Most of the arch/* file changes are for cpu_coregroup_map() implementation.

The code is:
#define SCALE(v1,v1_max,v2_max) \
(v1) * (v2_max) / (v1_max)

which is used in this way:
SCALE(TASK_NICE(p), 40, MAX_BONUS)

Comments in the code says:
  * This part scales the interactivity limit depending on niceness.
  *
  * We scale it linearly, offset by the INTERACTIVE_DELTA delta.
  * Here are a few examples of different nice levels:
  *
  *  TASK_INTERACTIVE(-20): [1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,0,0]
  *  TASK_INTERACTIVE(-10): [1,1,1,1,1,1,1,0,0,0,0]
  *  TASK_INTERACTIVE(  0): [1,1,1,1,0,0,0,0,0,0,0]
  *  TASK_INTERACTIVE( 10): [1,1,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0]
  *  TASK_INTERACTIVE( 19): [0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0]
  *
  * (the X axis represents the possible -5 ... 0 ... +5 dynamic
  *  priority range a task can explore, a value of '1' means the
  *  task is rated interactive.)

However, the current code does not scale it linearly and the result differs
from the given examples.  If the mathematical function "floor" is used when
the nice value is negative instead of the truncation one gets when using
integer division, the result conforms to the documentation.

Output of TASK_INTERACTIVE when using the kernel code:

NeilBrown [Mon, 27 Mar 2006 09:15:07 +0000]
[PATCH] knfsd: An assortment of little fixes to the sunrpc cache code

- in cache_check, h must be non-NULL as it has been de-referenced,
  so don't bother checking for NULL.

- When a cache-item is updated, we need to call cache_revisit_request to see
  if there is a pending request waiting for that item.  We were using
  a transition to CACHE_VALID to see if that was needed, however that is
  wrong as an expired entry will still be marked 'valid' (as the data is valid
  and will need to be released).  So instead use an off transition for
  CACHE_PENDING which is exactly the right thing to test.

- Add a little bit more debugging info.

[PATCH] knfsd: Break the hard linkage from svc_expkey to svc_export

Current svc_expkey holds a pointer to the svc_export structure, so updates to
that structure have to be in-place, which is a wart on the whole cache
infrastruct.  So we break that linkage and just do a second lookup.

If this became a performance issue, it would be possible to put a direct link
back in which was only used conditionally.  i.e.  when an object is replaced
in the cache, we set a flag in the old object.  When dereferencing the link
from svc_expkey, if the flag is set, we drop the reference and do a fresh
lookup.
