12 years agonohz: prevent tick stop outside of the idle loop
Thomas Gleixner [Fri, 18 Jul 2008 15:27:28 +0000]
nohz: prevent tick stop outside of the idle loop

Jack Ren and Eric Miao tracked down the following long standing
problem in the NOHZ code:

scheduler switch to idle task
enable interrupts

Window starts here

----> interrupt happens (does not set NEED_RESCHED)
       irq_exit() stops the tick

----> interrupt happens (does set NEED_RESCHED)

return from schedule()

cpu_idle(): preempt_disable();

Window ends here

The interrupts can happen at any point inside the race window. The
first interrupt stops the tick, the second one causes the scheduler to
rerun and switch away from idle again and we end up with the tick
disabled.

The fact that it needs two interrupts where the first one does not set
NEED_RESCHED and the second one does made the bug obscure and extremly
hard to reproduce and analyse. Kudos to Jack and Eric.

Solution: Limit the NOHZ functionality to the idle loop to make sure
that we can not run into such a situation ever again.

cpu_idle()
{
preempt_disable();

while(1) {
 tick_nohz_stop_sched_tick(1); <- tell NOHZ code that we
            are in the idle loop

 while (!need_resched())
       halt();

 tick_nohz_restart_sched_tick(); <- disables NOHZ mode
 preempt_enable_no_resched();
 schedule();
 preempt_disable();
}
}

In hindsight we should have done this forever, but ...

/me grabs a large brown paperbag.

12 years agonohz: don't stop idle tick if softirqs are pending.
Heiko Carstens [Fri, 11 Jul 2008 09:09:22 +0000]
nohz: don't stop idle tick if softirqs are pending.

In case a cpu goes idle but softirqs are pending only an error message is
printed to the console. It may take a very long time until the pending
softirqs will finally be executed. Worst case would be a hanging system.

With this patch the timer tick just continues and the softirqs will be
executed after the next interrupt. Still a delay but better than a
hanging system.

Currently we have at least two device drivers on s390 which under certain
circumstances schedule a tasklet from process context. This is a reason
why we can end up with pending softirqs when going idle. Fixing these
drivers seems to be non-trivial.
However there is no question that the drivers should be fixed.
This patch shouldn't be considered as a bug fix. It just is intended to
keep a system running even if device drivers are buggy.

Alan Stern [Tue, 20 May 2008 20:59:33 +0000]
USB: EHCI: fix performance regression

This patch (as1099) fixes a performance regression in ehci-hcd.  The
fundamental problem is that queue headers get removed from the
schedule too quickly, since the code checks for a counter advancing
rather than making an actual time-based check.  The latency involved
in removing the queue header and then relinking it can severely
degrade certain kinds of workloads.

The patch replaces a simple counter with a timestamp derived from the
controller's uframe value.  In addition, the delay for unlinking an
idle queue header is increased from 5 ms to 10 ms; since some
controllers (nVidia) have a latency of up to 1 ms for unlinking, this
reduces the relative impact from 20% to 10%.

Finally, a logical error left over from the IAA watchdog-timer
conversion is corrected.  Now the driver will always either unlink an
idle queue header or set up a timer to unlink it later.  The old code
would sometimes fail to do either.

USB: EHCI: fix bug in Iso scheduling

This patch (as1098) changes the way ehci-hcd schedules its periodic
Iso transfers.  That the current scheduling code is wrong is clear on
the face of it: Sometimes it returns -EL2NSYNC (meaning that an URB
couldn't be scheduled because it was submitted too late), but it does
this even when the URB_ISO_ASAP flag is set (meaning the URB should be
scheduled as soon as possible).

The new code properly implements as-soon-as-possible scheduling,
assigning the next unexpired slot as the URB's starting point.  It
also is more careful about checking for Iso URB completion: It doesn't
bother to check for activity during frames that are already over,
and it allows for the possibility that some of the URB's packets may
have raced the hardware when they were submitted and so never got used
(the packet status is set to -EXDEV).

This fixes problems several people have experienced with USB video
applications.

USB: EHCI: fix up root-hub TT mess

This patch (as1095) cleans up the HCD glue and several of the EHCI
bus-glue files.  The ehci->is_tdi_rh_tt flag is redundant, since it
means the same thing as the hcd->has_tt flag, so it is removed and the
other flag used in its place.

Some of the bus-glue files didn't get the relinquish_port method added
to their hc_driver structures.  Although that routine currently
doesn't do anything for controllers with an integrated TT, in the
future it might.  So the patch adds it where it is missing.

Lastly, some of the bus-glue files have erroneous entries for their
hc_driver's suspend and resume methods.  These method pointers are
specific to PCI and shouldn't be used otherwise.

USB: add all configs to the "descriptors" attribute

This patch (as1094) changes the output of the "descriptors" binary
attribute.  Now it will contain the device descriptor followed by all
the configuration descriptors, not just the descriptor for the current
config.

Userspace libraries want to have access to the kernel's cached
descriptor information, so they can learn about device characteristics
without having to wake up suspended devices.  So far the only user of
this attribute is the new libusb-1.0 library; thus changing its
contents shouldn't cause any problems.

This should be considered for 2.6.26, if for no other reason than to
minimize the range of releases in which the attribute contains only the
current config descriptor.

Also, it doesn't hurt that the patch removes the device locking --
which was formerly needed in order to know for certain which config was
indeed current.

Alan Stern [Tue, 20 May 2008 20:37:34 +0000]
USB: fix possible deadlock involving sysfs attributes

There is a potential deadlock when the usb_generic driver is unbound
from a device.  The problem is that generic_disconnect() is called
with the device lock held, and it removes a bunch of device attributes
from sysfs.  If a user task happens to be running an attribute method
at the time, the removal will block until the method returns.  But at
least one of the attribute methods (the store routine for power/level)
needs to acquire the device lock!

This patch (as1093) eliminates the deadlock by moving the calls to
create and remove the sysfs attributes from the usb_generic driver
into usb_new_device() and usb_disconnect(), where they can be invoked
without holding the device lock.

Besides, the other sysfs attributes are created when the device is
registered and removed when the device is unregistered.  So it seems
only fitting for the extra attributes to be created and removed at the
same time.

USB: Firmware loader driver for USB Apple iSight camera

Uninitialised Apple iSight drivers present with a distinctive USB ID.
Once firmware has been uploaded, they disconnect and reconnect with a

is unique to the Apple cameras and not functionality shared by any other

functionality in a separate driver. This driver will read an isight.fw
file extracted from the Apple driver using the tools at
http://bersace03.free.fr/ift/ and upload it to the camera. It will also

USB: FTDI_SIO : Add support for Matrix Orbital PID Range

This patch adds support for the range of PIDs
that have been allocated for FTDI based devices
at Matrix Orbital.

A small number of units have been shipped early 2008
with a faulty USB Descriptor.  Products that may have
this issue have been marked with the existing quirk to
work around the problem.

[CPUFREQ] fix double unlock of cpu_policy_rwsem in drivers/cpufreq/cpufreq.c

In drivers/cpufreq/cpufreq.c the function cpufreq_add_dev() takes the
error exit 'err_out_unregister' from different places once with the
'cpu_policy_rwsem' lock held, once with the lock released:
| if (ret)
| goto err_out_unregister;
| }
|
| policy->governor = NULL; /* to assure that the starting sequence is
|   * run in cpufreq_set_policy */
|
| /* set default policy */
| ret = __cpufreq_set_policy(policy, &new_policy);
| policy->user_policy.policy = policy->policy;

12 years agosched: re-tune NUMA topologies
Ingo Molnar [Thu, 29 May 2008 12:32:23 +0000]
sched: re-tune NUMA topologies

improve the sysbench ramp-up phase and its peak throughput on
a 16way NUMA box, by turning on WAKE_AFFINE:

             tip/sched   tip/sched+wake-affine
-------------------------------------------------
    1:             700              830    +15.65%
    2:            1465             1391    -5.28%
    4:            3017             3105    +2.81%
    8:            5100             6021    +15.30%
   16:           10725            10745    +0.19%
   32:           10135            10150    +0.16%
   64:            9338             9240    -1.06%
  128:            8599             8252    -4.21%
  256:            8475             8144    -4.07%
-------------------------------------------------
  SUM:           57558            57882    +0.56%

this change also improves lat_ctx from 6.69 usecs to 1.11 usec:

  $ ./lat_ctx -s 0 2
  "size=0k ovr=1.19
  2 1.11

  $ ./lat_ctx -s 0 2
  "size=0k ovr=1.22
  2 6.69

in sysbench it's an overall win with some weakness at the lots-of-clients
side. That happens because we now under-balance this workload
a bit. To counter that effect, turn on NEWIDLE:

              wake-idle          wake-idle+newidle
 -------------------------------------------------
     1:             830              834    +0.43%
     2:            1391             1401    +0.65%
     4:            3105             3091    -0.43%
     8:            6021             6046    +0.42%
    16:           10745            10736    -0.08%
    32:           10150            10206    +0.55%
    64:            9240             9533    +3.08%
   128:            8252             8355    +1.24%
   256:            8144             8384    +2.87%
 -------------------------------------------------
   SUM:           57882            58591    +1.21%

as a bonus this not only improves the many-clients case but
also improves the (more important) rampup phase.

sysbench is a workload that quickly breaks down if the
scheduler over-balances, so since it showed an improvement
under NEWIDLE this change is definitely good.

pci_hotplug: Unable to register kobject '2'<3>pciehp: pci_hp_register failed with error -22

Slot with the same name can be registered multiple times if shpchp or
pciehp driver is loaded after acpiphp is loaded because ACPI based
hotplug driver and Native OS hotplug driver trying to handle the same
physical slot. In this case, current pci_hotplug core will call
kobject_init_and_add() muliple time with the same name. This is the
cause of this problem. To fix this problem, this patch adds the check

12 years agopciehp: move msleep after power off
Kenji Kaneshige [Tue, 27 May 2008 10:06:22 +0000]
pciehp: move msleep after power off

According to the PCI Express specification, we must wait for at least
1 second after turning power off before taking any action that relies
on power having been removed from the slot/adapter. For this, current
pciehp wait for 1 second after issuing the power off command in
hpc_power_off_slot() function. But waiting for 1 second in
hpc_power_off_slot() can make pciehp probing slow-down because pciehp
probe code calls hpc_power_off_slot() if the slot is not occupied just
in case. We don't need to wait for 1 second at the pciehp probe time
because there is no action on that empty slot. So move 1 second wait
from hpc_power_off_slot() to the caller of hpc_power_off_slot().

12 years agopciehp: poll cmd completion if hotplug interrupt is disabled
Kenji Kaneshige [Tue, 27 May 2008 10:05:26 +0000]
pciehp: poll cmd completion if hotplug interrupt is disabled

Fix improper long wait for command completion in pciehp probing.

As described in PCI Express specification, software notification is
not generated if the command that occurs as a result of a write to the
Slot Control register that disables software notification of command
completed events. Since pciehp driver doesn't take it into account,
such command is issued in pciehp probing, and it causes improper long
wait for command completion.

This patch changes the pciehp driver to take such command into
account.

12 years agopciehp: fix slow probing
Kenji Kaneshige [Tue, 27 May 2008 10:04:30 +0000]
pciehp: fix slow probing

Fix the "pciehp probing slow" problem reported from Jan C. Nordholz in
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10751.

The command completed bit in Slot Status register applies only to
commands issued to control the attention indicator, power indicator,
power controller, or electromechanical interlock. However, writes to
other parts of the Slot Control register would end up writing to the
control fields. Hence, any write to Slot Control register is
considered as a command. However, if the controller doesn't support
any of attention indicator, power indicator, power controller and
electromechanical interlock, command completed bit would not set in
writing to Slot Control register. In this case, we should not wait for
command completed bit set, otherwise all commands would be considered
not completed in timeout seconds (1 sec.).

The cause of the problem is pciehp driver didn't take this situation
into account. This patch changes pciehp to take it into account. This
patch also add the check for "No Command Completed Support" bit in
Slot Capability register. If it is set, we should not wait for command
completed bit set as well.

This problem seems to be revealed by the commit
c27fb883dffe11aa4cb35ecea1fa1832ba45d4da that fixed the bug that
pciehp did not wait for command completed properly (pciehp just
ignored the command completion event).

to happen on a system that has PCI hotplug hardware but with no active
hotplug cards, and another interrupt in the same (shared) IRQ line
arrives too early, before the hotplug-slot entry has been set up - as
triggered by CONFIG_DEBUG_SHIRQ=y:

This patch contains the following two fixes.

(1) Clear all events bits in Slot Status register to prevent the pciehp
    driver from detecting the spurious events that would have been occur
    before pciehp loading.

(2) Add check whether slot initialization had been already done.

This is short term fix. We need more structural fixes to install
interrupt handler after slot initialization is done.

12 years ago[IA64] Workaround for RSE issue
Tony Luck [Tue, 27 May 2008 20:23:16 +0000]
[IA64] Workaround for RSE issue

Problem: An application violating the architectural rules regarding
operation dependencies and having specific Register Stack Engine (RSE)
state at the time of the violation, may result in an illegal operation
fault and invalid RSE state.  Such faults may initiate a cascade of
repeated illegal operation faults within OS interruption handlers.
The specific behavior is OS dependent.

Implication: An application causing an illegal operation fault with
specific RSE state may result in a series of illegal operation faults
and an eventual OS stack overflow condition.

Workaround: OS interruption handlers that switch to kernel backing
store implement a check for invalid RSE state to avoid the series
of illegal operation faults.

The core of the workaround is the RSE_WORKAROUND code sequence
inserted into each invocation of the SAVE_MIN_WITH_COVER and
SAVE_MIN_WITH_COVER_R19 macros.  This sequence includes hard-coded
constants that depend on the number of stacked physical registers
being 96.  The rest of this patch consists of code to disable this
workaround should this not be the case (with the presumption that
if a future Itanium processor increases the number of registers, it
would also remove the need for this patch).

Move the start of the RBS up to a mod32 boundary to avoid some
corner cases.

The dispatch_illegal_op_fault code outgrew the spot it was
squatting in when built with this patch and CONFIG_VIRT_CPU_ACCOUNTING=y
Move it out to the end of the ivt.

from the very beginning, and then by Linus.

As Austin pointed out, the execing task can be killed by SI_TIMER signal
because exec flushes the signal handlers, but doesn't discard the pending
signals generated by posix timers. Perhaps not a bug, but people find this
surprising. See http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10460

Oleg Nesterov [Mon, 26 May 2008 16:55:42 +0000]
posix timers: sigqueue_free: don't free sigqueue if it is queued

Currently sigqueue_free() removes sigqueue from list, but doesn't cancel the
pending signal. This is not consistent, the task should either receive the
"full" signal along with siginfo_t, or it shouldn't receive the signal at all.

Change sigqueue_free() to clear SIGQUEUE_PREALLOC but leave sigqueue on list
if it is queued.

This is a user-visible change. If the signal is blocked, it stays queued
after sys_timer_delete() until unblocked with the "stale" si_code/si_value,
and of course it is still counted wrt RLIMIT_SIGPENDING which also limits
the number of posix timers.

On Book-E SMP systems each core has its own private watchdog.  If only one
watchdog is enabled, when the core that doesn't enable the watchdog is hung,
system can't reset because no watchdog is running on it.  That's bad.  It

David Brownell [Fri, 23 May 2008 20:05:03 +0000]
spi: remove some spidev oops-on-rmmod paths

Somehow the spidev code forgot to include a critical mechanism: when the
underlying device is removed (e.g.  spi_master rmmod), open file
descriptors must be prevented from issuing new I/O requests to that
device.  On penalty of the oopsing reported by Sebastian Siewior
<bigeasy@tglx.de> ...

This is a partial fix, adding handshaking between the lower level (SPI
messaging) and the file operations using the spi_dev.  (It also fixes an
issue where reads and writes didn't return the number of bytes sent or
received.)

There's still a refcounting issue to be addressed (separately).

Cedric Le Goater [Fri, 23 May 2008 20:05:02 +0000]
cgroups: remove node_ prefix_from ns subsystem

This is a slight change in the namespace cgroup subsystem api.

The change is that previously when cgroup_clone() was called (currently
only from the unshare path in ns_proxy cgroup, you'd get a new group named
"node_$pid" whereas now you'll get a group named after just your pid.)

The only users who would notice it are those who are using the ns_proxy
cgroup subsystem to auto-create cgroups when namespaces are unshared -
something of an experimental feature, which I think really needs more
complete container/namespace support in order to be useful.  I suspect the
only users are Cedric and Serge, or maybe a few others on
containers@lists.linux-foundation.org.  And in fact it would only be
noticed by the users who make the assumption about how the name is
generated, rather than getting it from the /proc/<pid>/cgroups file for
the process in question.

Whether the change is actually needed or not I'm fairly agnostic on, but I
guess it is more elegant to just use the pid as the new group name rather
than adding a fairly arbitrary "node_" prefix on the front.

PR_SET_DUMPABLE cases of the switch statement will never write to local
