Steven Whitehouse [Tue, 12 Sep 2006 14:10:01 +0000]
[GFS2] Use hlist for glock hash chains

This results in smaller list heads, so that we can have more chains
in the same amount of memory (twice as many). I've multiplied the
size of the table by four though - this is because we are saving
memory by not having one lock per chain any more. So we land up
using about the same amount of memory for the hash table as we
did before I started these changes, the difference being that we
now have four times as many hash chains.

The reason that I say "about the same amount of memory" is that the
actual amount now depends upon the NR_CPUS and some of the config
variables, so that its not exact and in some cases we do use more
memory. Eventually we might want to scale the hash table size
according to the size of physical ram as measured on module load.

14 years ago[GFS2] Rewrite of examine_bucket()
Steven Whitehouse [Tue, 12 Sep 2006 01:40:30 +0000]
[GFS2] Rewrite of examine_bucket()

The existing implementation of this function in glock.c was not
very efficient as it relied upon keeping a cursor element upon the
hash chain in question and moving it along. This new version improves
upon this by using the current element as a cursor. This is possible
since we only look at the "next" element in the list after we've
taken the read_lock() subsequent to calling the examiner function.
Obviously we have to eventually drop the ref count that we are then
left with and we cannot do that while holding the read_lock, so we
do that next time we drop the lock. That means either just before
we examine another glock, or when the loop has terminated.

The new implementation has several advantages: it uses only a
read_lock() rather than a write_lock(), so it can run simnultaneously
with other code, it doesn't need a "plug" element, so that it removes
a test not only from this list iterator, but from all the other glock
list iterators too. So it makes things faster and smaller.

[DLM] confirm master for recovered waiting requests

Fixing the following scenario:
- A request is on the waiters list waiting for a reply from a remote node.
- The request is the first one on the resource, so first_lkid is set.
- The remote node fails causing recovery.
- During recovery the requesting node becomes master.
- The request is now processed locally instead of being a remote operation.
- At this point we need to call confirm_master() on the resource since
  we're certain we're now the master node.  This will clear first_lkid.
- We weren't calling confirm_master(), so first_lkid was not being cleared
  causing subsequent requests on that resource to get stuck.

Steven Whitehouse [Fri, 8 Sep 2006 17:35:56 +0000]
[GFS2] Move rwlocks in glock.c into their own array

This splits the rwlocks guarding the hash chains of the glock hash
table into their own array. This will reduce memory usage in some
cases due to better alignment, although the real reason for doing it
is to allow the two tables to be different sizes in future (i.e.
the locks will be sized proportionally with the max number of CPUs
and the hash chains sized proportinally with the size of physical memory)

In order to allow this, the gl_bucket member of struct gfs2_glock has
now become gl_hash, so we record the hash rather than a pointer to the
bucket itself.

George G. Davis [Sat, 2 Sep 2006 17:43:20 +0000]
[ARM] 3762/1: Fix ptrace cache coherency bug for ARM1136 VIPT nonaliasing Harvard caches

Patch from George G. Davis

Resolve ARM1136 VIPT non-aliasing cache coherency issues observed when
using ptrace to set breakpoints and cleanup copy_{to,from}_user_page()
while we're here as requested by Russell King because "it's also far
too heavy on non-v6 CPUs".

NOTES:

1. Only access_process_vm() calls copy_{to,from}_user_page().
2. access_process_vm() calls get_user_pages() to pin down the "page".
3. get_user_pages() calls flush_dcache_page(page) which ensures cache
   coherency between kernel and userspace mappings of "page".  However
   flush_dcache_page(page) may not invalidate I-Cache over this range
   for all cases, specifically, I-Cache is not invalidated for the VIPT
   non-aliasing case.  So memory is consistent between kernel and user
   space mappings of "page" but I-Cache may still be hot over this
   range.  IOW, we don't have to worry about flush_cache_page() before
   memcpy().
4. Now, for the copy_to_user_page() case, after memcpy(), we must flush
   the caches so memory is consistent with kernel cache entries and
   invalidate the I-Cache if this mm region is executable.  We don't
   need to do anything after memcpy() for the copy_from_user_page()
   case since kernel cache entries will be invalidated via the same
   process above if we access "page" again.  The flush_ptrace_access()
   function (borrowed from SPARC64 implementation) is added to handle
   cache flushing after memcpy() for the copy_to_user_page() case.

Nishanth Aravamudan [Fri, 1 Sep 2006 04:27:53 +0000]
[PATCH] fix NUMA interleaving for huge pages

Since vma->vm_pgoff is in units of smallpages, VMAs for huge pages have the
lower HPAGE_SHIFT - PAGE_SHIFT bits always cleared, which results in badd
offsets to the interleave functions.  Take this difference from small pages
into account when calculating the offset.  This does add a 0-bit shift into
the small-page path (via alloc_page_vma()), but I think that is negligible.
 Also add a BUG_ON to prevent the offset from growing due to a negative
right-shift, which probably shouldn't be allowed anyways.

Tested on an 8-memory node ppc64 NUMA box and got the interleaving I
expected.

[PATCH] powerpc: More via-pmu backlight fixes

The via-pmu backlight code (introduced in 2.6.18) has various design issues
causing crashes on machines using it like the old Wallstreet powerbook
(Michael, the author, never managed to test on these and I just got my hand
on one of those old beasts).

This fixes them by no longer trying to hijack the backlight device of the
frontmost framebuffer (causing that framebuffer to crash) but having it's
own local bits instead.  Might look weird but it's better that way on those
old machines, at least as a last-minute fix for 2.6.18.  We might rework
the whole thing later.  This patch also changes the way it gets notified of
sleep and wakeup in order to properly shut the backlight down on sleep and
bring it back on wakeup.

[PATCH] dm: work around mempool_alloc, bio_alloc_bioset deadlocks

This patch works around a complex dm-related deadlock/livelock down in the
mempool allocator.

Alasdair said:

  Several dm targets suffer from this.

  Mempools are not yet used correctly everywhere in device-mapper: they can
  get shared when devices are stacked, and some targets share them across
  multiple instances.  I made fixing this one of the prerequisites for this
  patch:

    md-dm-reduce-stack-usage-with-stacked-block-devices.patch

  which in some cases makes people more likely to hit the problem.

  There's been some progress on this recently with (unfinished) dm-crypt
  patches at:

    http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/agk/patches/2.6/editing/
      (dm-crypt-move-io-to-workqueue.patch plus dependencies)

and:

  I've no problems with a temporary workaround like that, but Milan Broz (a
  new Redhat developer in the Czech Republic) has started reviewing all the
  mempool usage in device-mapper so I'm expecting we'll soon have a proper fix
  for this associated problems.  [He's back from holiday at the start of next
  week.]

For now, this sad-but-safe little patch will allow the machine to recover.

So bump that up to support 256 busses, but leave it at 32 if we're building a
tiny system to save a bit of memory.

[PATCH] task delay accounting fixes

Cleanup allocation and freeing of tsk->delays used by delay accounting.
This solves two problems reported for delay accounting:

1. oops in __delayacct_blkio_ticks
http://www.uwsg.indiana.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/0608.2/1844.html

Currently tsk->delays is getting freed too early in task exit which can
cause a NULL tsk->delays to get accessed via reading of /proc/<tgid>/stats.
 The patch fixes this problem by freeing tsk->delays closer to when
task_struct itself is freed up.  As a result, it also eliminates the use of
tsk->delays_lock which was only being used (inadequately) to safeguard
access to tsk->delays while a task was exiting.

2. Possible memory leak in kernel/delayacct.c
http://www.uwsg.indiana.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/0608.2/1389.html

The patch cleans up tsk->delays allocations after a bad fork which was
missing earlier.

The patch has been tested to fix the problems listed above and stress
tested with rapid calls to delay accounting's taskstats command interface
(which is the other path that can access the same data, besides the /proc
interface causing the oops above).

14 years ago[PATCH] ZVC: Scale thresholds depending on the size of the system
Christoph Lameter [Fri, 1 Sep 2006 04:27:35 +0000]
[PATCH] ZVC: Scale thresholds depending on the size of the system

The ZVC counter update threshold is currently set to a fixed value of 32.
This patch sets up the threshold depending on the number of processors and
the sizes of the zones in the system.

With the current threshold of 32, I was able to observe slight contention
when more than 130-140 processors concurrently updated the counters.  The
contention vanished when I either increased the threshold to 64 or used
Andrew's idea of overstepping the interval (see ZVC overstep patch).

However, we saw contention again at 220-230 processors.  So we need higher
values for larger systems.

But the current default is already a bit of an overkill for smaller
systems.  Some systems have tiny zones where precision matters.  For
example i386 and x86_64 have 16M DMA zones and either 900M ZONE_NORMAL or
ZONE_DMA32.  These are even present on SMP and NUMA systems.

The patch here sets up a threshold based on the number of processors in the
system and the size of the zone that these counters are used for.  The
threshold should grow logarithmically, so we use fls() as an easy
approximation.

Results of tests on a system with 1024 processors (4TB RAM)

The following output is from a test allocating 1GB of memory concurrently
on each processor (Forking the process.  So contention on mmap_sem and the
pte locks is not a factor):

                       X                   MIN
TYPE:               CPUS       WALL       WALL        SYS     USER     TOTCPU
fork                   1      0.552      0.552      0.540    0.012      0.552
fork                   4      0.552      0.548      2.164    0.036      2.200
fork                  16      0.564      0.548      8.812    0.164      8.976
fork                 128      0.580      0.572     72.204    1.208     73.412
fork                 256      1.300      0.660    310.400    2.160    312.560
fork                 512      3.512      0.696   1526.836    4.816   1531.652
fork                1020     20.024      0.700  17243.176    6.688  17249.863

So a threshold of 32 is fine up to 128 processors. At 256 processors contention
becomes a factor.

Overstepping the counter (earlier patch) improves the numbers a bit:

fork                   4      0.552      0.548      2.164    0.040      2.204
fork                  16      0.552      0.548      8.640    0.148      8.788
fork                 128      0.556      0.548     69.676    0.956     70.632
fork                 256      0.876      0.636    212.468    2.108    214.576
fork                 512      2.276      0.672    997.324    4.260   1001.584
fork                1020     13.564      0.680  11586.436    6.088  11592.523

Still contention at 512 and 1020. Contention at 1020 is down by a third.
256 still has a slight bit of contention.

After this patch the counter threshold will be set to 125 which reduces
contention significantly:

fork                 128      0.560      0.548     69.776    0.932     70.708
fork                 256      0.636      0.556    143.460    2.036    145.496

Christoph Lameter [Fri, 1 Sep 2006 04:27:34 +0000]
[PATCH] ZVC: Overstep counters

Increments and decrements are usually grouped rather than mixed.  We can
optimize the inc and dec functions for that case.

Increment and decrement the counters by 50% more than the threshold in
those cases and set the differential accordingly.  This decreases the need
to update the atomic counters.

The idea came originally from Andrew Morton.  The overstepping alone was
sufficient to address the contention issue found when updating the global
and the per zone counters from 160 processors.

Also remove some code in dec_zone_page_state.

[GFS2] Update copyright, tidy up incore.h

As per comments from Jan Engelhardt <jengelh@linux01.gwdg.de> this
updates the copyright message to say "version" in full rather than
"v.2". Also incore.h has been updated to remove forward structure
declarations which are not required.

The gfs2_quota_lvb structure has now had endianess annotations added
to it. Also quota.c has been updated so that we now store the
lvb data locally in endian independant format to avoid needing
a structure in host endianess too. As a result the endianess
conversions are done as required at various points and thus the
conversion routines in lvb.[ch] are no longer required. I've
moved the one remaining constant in lvb.h thats used into lm.h
and removed the unused lvb.[ch].

I have not changed the HIF_ constants. That is left to a later patch
which I hope will unify the gh_flags and gh_iflags fields of the
struct gfs2_holder.

non-IRQ-safe spin_lock() internally.  Lockdep correctly warns that

[GFS2] Fix releasepage bug (fixes direct i/o writes)

This patch fixes three main bugs. Firstly the direct i/o get_block
was returning the wrong return code in certain cases. Secondly, the
GFS2's releasepage function was not dealing with cases when clean,
ordered buffers were found still queued on a transaction (which can
happen depending on the ordering of journal flushes). Thirdly, the
journaling code itself needed altering to take account of the
after effects of removing the clean ordered buffers from the transactions
before a journal flush.

The releasepage bug did also show up under "normal" buffered i/o
as well, so its not just a fix for direct i/o. In fact its not
normally used in the direct i/o path at all, except when flushing
existing buffers after performing a direct i/o write, but that was
the code path that led us to spot this.

[PATCH] fbdev: Fix crashes in various fbdev's blank routines

The backlight changes that went in had a bug where they could cause the
kernel to access an unitialized pointer when blanking if there is no
backlight control on a machine.

The bug affects atyfb, aty128fb, nvidiafb and rivafb.  radeonfb seems to
be ok.  This fixes it.

[POWERPC] Fix return value from memcpy

As pointed out by Herbert Xu <herbert@gondor.apana.org.au>, our
memcpy implementation didn't return the destination pointer as its
return value, and there is code in the kernel that expects that.
This fixes it.

14 years ago[PATCH] Missing PCI id update for VIA IDE
Alan Cox [Wed, 30 Aug 2006 18:14:25 +0000]
[PATCH] Missing PCI id update for VIA IDE

The following change from -mm is important to 2.6.18 (actually to 2.6.17
but its too late for that). This was contributed over three months ago
by VIA to Bartlomiej and nothing happened. As a result the new chipset
is now out and Linux won't run on it. By the time 2.6.18 is finalised
this will be the defacto standard VIA chipset so support would be a good
plan.

Tested in -mm for a while, its essentially a PCI ident update but for
the bridge chip because VIA do things in weird ways.
