13 years agomm: size of quicklists shouldn't be proportional to the number of CPUs
KOSAKI Motohiro [Tue, 2 Sep 2008 21:35:58 +0000]
mm: size of quicklists shouldn't be proportional to the number of CPUs

Quicklists store pages for each CPU as caches.  (Each CPU can cache
node_free_pages/16 pages)

It is used for page table cache.  exit() will increase the cache size,
while fork() consumes it.

So for example if an apache-style application runs (one parent and many
child model), one CPU process will fork() while another CPU will process
the middleware work and exit().

At that time, the CPU on which the parent runs doesn't have page table
cache at all.  Others (on which children runs) have maximum caches.

QList_max = (#ofCPUs - 1) x Free / 16
=> QList_max / (Free + QList_max) = (#ofCPUs - 1) / (16 + #ofCPUs - 1)

So, How much quicklist memory is used in the maximum case?

This is proposional to # of CPUs because the limit of per cpu quicklist
cache doesn't see the number of cpus.

Above calculation mean

 Number of CPUs per node            2    4    8   16
 ==============================  ====================
 QList_max / (Free + QList_max)   5.8%  16%  30%  48%

Wow! Quicklist can spend about 50% memory at worst case.

My demonstration program is here

    /* move to other cpu */
    printf("a child moved to cpu%d after mmap().\n", nextcpu);

    /* back page tables to pgtable_quicklist */

  } else if (pid > 0) { /* parent action */

    waitpid(pid, NULL, WNOHANG);


  goto loop;

When above program which does task migration runs, my 8GB box spends
800MB of memory for quicklist.  This is not memory leak but doesn't seem

% cat /proc/meminfo

MemTotal:        7701568 kB
MemFree:         4724672 kB
Quicklists:       844800 kB


- My machine spec is
number of numa node: 2
number of cpus:      8 (4CPU x2 node)
        total mem:           8GB (4GB x2 node)
        free mem:            about 5GB

- Then, 4.7GB x 16% ~= 880MB.
  So, Quicklist can use 800MB.

So, if following spec machine run that program

   CPUs: 64 (8cpu x 8node)
   Mem:  1TB (128GB x8node)

Then, quicklist can waste 300GB (= 1TB x 30%).  It is too large.

So, I don't like cache policies which is proportional to # of cpus.

My patch changes the number of caches
   per-cpu-cache-amount = memory_on_node / 16
   per-cpu-cache-amount = memory_on_node / 16 / number_of_cpus_on_node.

13 years agopid_ns: (BUG 11391) change ->child_reaper when init->group_leader exits
Oleg Nesterov [Tue, 2 Sep 2008 21:35:49 +0000]
pid_ns: (BUG 11391) change ->child_reaper when init->group_leader exits

We don't change pid_ns->child_reaper when the main thread of the
subnamespace init exits.  As Robert Rex <robert.rex@exasol.com> pointed
out this is wrong.

Yes, the re-parenting itself works correctly, but if the reparented task
exits it needs ->parent->nsproxy->pid_ns in do_notify_parent(), and if the
main thread is zombie its ->nsproxy was already cleared by

Introduce the new function, find_new_reaper(), which finds the new
->parent for the re-parenting and changes ->child_reaper if needed.  Kill
the now unneeded exit_child_reaper().

Also move the changing of ->child_reaper from zap_pid_ns_processes() to
find_new_reaper(), this consolidates the games with ->child_reaper and
makes it stable under tasklist_lock.

13 years agopid_ns: zap_pid_ns_processes: fix the ->child_reaper changing
Oleg Nesterov [Tue, 2 Sep 2008 21:35:48 +0000]
pid_ns: zap_pid_ns_processes: fix the ->child_reaper changing

zap_pid_ns_processes() sets pid_ns->child_reaper = NULL, this is wrong.

Yes, we have already killed all tasks in this namespace, and sys_wait4()
doesn't see any child.  But this doesn't mean ->children list is empty, we
may have EXIT_DEAD tasks which are not visible to do_wait().  In that case
the subsequent forget_original_parent() will crash the kernel because it
will try to re-parent these tasks to the NULL reaper.

Even if there are no childs, it is not good that forget_original_parent()
uses reaper == NULL.

Change the code to set ->child_reaper = init_pid_ns.child_reaper instead.
We could use pid_ns->parent->child_reaper as well, I think this does not
really matter.  These EXIT_DEAD tasks are not visible to the new ->parent
after re-parenting, they will silently do release_task() eventually.

Note that we must change ->child_reaper, otherwise
forget_original_parent() will use reaper == father, and in that case we
will hit the (correct) BUG_ON(!list_empty(&father->children)).

David Brownell [Tue, 2 Sep 2008 21:35:46 +0000]
mmc: at91_mci: don't use coherent dma buffers

At91_mci is abusing dma_free_coherent(), which may not be called with IRQs

This bug has been around for a LONG time.  The MM warning is from late
2005, but the driver merged a year later ...  so I'm puzzled why nobody
noticed this before now.

The fix involves noting that this buffer shouldn't be DMA-coherent; it's
just used for normal DMA writes.  So replace it with standard kmalloc()
buffering and DMA mapping calls.

This is the quickie fix.  A better one would not rely on allocating large
bounce buffers.  (Note that dma_alloc_coherent could have failed too, but
that case was ignored...  kmalloc is a bit more likely to fail though.)

13 years ago8250: improve workaround for UARTs that don't re-assert THRE correctly
Will Newton [Tue, 2 Sep 2008 21:35:44 +0000]
8250: improve workaround for UARTs that don't re-assert THRE correctly

Recent changes to tighten the check for UARTs that don't correctly
re-assert THRE (01c194d9278efc15d4785ff205643e9c0bdcef53: "serial 8250:
tighten test for using backup timer") caused problems when such a UART was
opened for the second time - the bug could only successfully be detected
at first initialization.  For users of this version of this particular
UART IP it is fatal.

This patch stores the information about the bug in the bugs field of the
port structure when the port is first started up so subsequent opens can
check this bit even if the test for the bug fails.

David Brownell: "My own exposure to this is that the UART on DaVinci
hardware, which TI allegedly derived from its original 16550 logic, has
periodically gone from working to unusable with the mainline 8250.c ...
and back and forth a bunch.  Currently it's "unusable", a regression from
some previous versions.  With this patch from Will, it's usable."

        jbd: fix race between free buffer and commit transaction

was merged into 2.6.27-rc1, but I noticed that this patch is not enough
to fix the race.

I did fsstress test heavily to 2.6.27-rc1, and found that dio write still
sometimes got EIO through this test.

The patch above fixed race between freeing buffer(dio) and committing
transaction(jbd) but I discovered that there is another race, freeing
buffer(dio) and ext3/4_ordered_writepage.

: background_writeout()
         walk_page_buffers() -> take a bh ref
     block_write_full_page() -> unlock_page
: <- end_page_writeback
                : <- race! (dio write->try_to_release_page fails)
          walk_page_buffers() ->release a bh ref

ext3_ordered_writepage holds bh ref and does unlock_page remaining
taking a bh ref, so this causes the race and failure of

To fix this race, I used the approach of falling back to buffered
writes if try_to_release_page() fails on a page.

mm: make setup_zone_migrate_reserve() aware of overlapping nodes

I have gotten to the root cause of the hugetlb badness I reported back on
August 15th.  My system has the following memory topology (note the
overlapping node):

            Node 0 Memory: 0x8000000-0x44000000
            Node 1 Memory: 0x0-0x8000000 0x44000000-0x80000000

setup_zone_migrate_reserve() scans the address range 0x0-0x8000000 looking
for a pageblock to move onto the MIGRATE_RESERVE list.  Finding no
candidates, it happily continues the scan into 0x8000000-0x44000000.  When
a pageblock is found, the pages are moved to the MIGRATE_RESERVE list on
the wrong zone.  Oops.

setup_zone_migrate_reserve() should skip pageblocks in overlapping nodes.

David Wagner added (among other things) that copy_to_user could be
probably used here.

Ingo Oeser suggested to use simple_read_from_buffer() here.

The conclusion is that proc_do_xprt doesn't check for userside buffer
size indeed so fix this by using Ingo's suggestion.

NeilBrown [Mon, 1 Sep 2008 02:48:13 +0000]
Fix problem with waiting while holding rcu read lock in md/bitmap.c

A recent patch to protect the rdev list with rcu locking leaves us
with a problem because we can sleep on memalloc while holding the
rcu lock.

The rcu lock is only needed while walking the linked list as
uninteresting devices (failed or spares) can be removed at any time.

So only take the rcu lock while actually walking the linked list.
Take a refcount on the rdev during the time when we drop the lock
and do the memalloc to start IO.
When we return to the locked code, all the interesting devices
on the list will not have moved, so we can simply use
list_for_each_continue_rcu to pick up where we left off.

13 years agoRemove invalidate_partition call from do_md_stop.
NeilBrown [Mon, 1 Sep 2008 02:32:52 +0000]
Remove invalidate_partition call from do_md_stop.

When stopping an md array, or just switching to read-only, we
currently call invalidate_partition while holding the mddev lock.
The main reason for this is probably to ensure all dirty buffers
are flushed (invalidate_partition calls fsync_bdev).

However if any dirty buffers are found, it will almost certainly cause
a deadlock as starting writeout will require an update to the
superblock, and performing that updates requires taking the mddev
lock - which is already held.

This deadlock can be demonstrated by running "reboot -f -n" with
a root filesystem on md/raid, and some dirty buffers in memory.

All other calls to stop an array should already happen after a flush.
The normal sequence is to stop using the array (e.g. umount) which
will cause __blkdev_put to call sync_blockdev.  Then open the
array and issue the STOP_ARRAY ioctl while the buffers are all still

So this invalidate_partition is normally a no-op, except for one case
where it will cause a deadlock.

So remove it.

This patch possibly addresses the regression recored in

though it isn't yet clear how it ever worked.

Don't trigger softlockup detector on network fs blocked tasks

Pulling the ethernet cable on a 2.6.27-rc system with NFS mounts
currently leads to an ongoing flood of soft lockup detector backtraces
for all tasks blocked on the NFS mounts when the hickup takes
longer than 120s.

I don't think NFS problems should be all that noisy.

Luckily there's a reasonably easy way to distingush this case.

Don't report task softlockup warnings for tasks in TASK_KILLABLE

ALSA: oxygen: fix distorted output on AK4396-based cards

When changing the sample rate, the CMI8788's master clock output becomes
unstable for a short time.  The AK4396 needs the master clock to do SPI
writes, so writing to an AK4396 control register directly after a sample
rate change will garble the value.  In our case, this leads to the DACs
being misconfigured to I2S sample format, which results in a wrong
output level and horrible distortions on samples louder than -6 dB.

To fix this, we need to wait until the new master clock signal has
become stable before doing SPI writes.

13 years agocifs: fix O_APPEND on directio mounts
Jeff Layton [Thu, 28 Aug 2008 11:54:59 +0000]
cifs: fix O_APPEND on directio mounts

The direct I/O write codepath for CIFS is done through
cifs_user_write(). That function does not currently call
generic_write_checks() so the file position isn't being properly set
when the file is opened with O_APPEND.  It's also not doing the other
"normal" checks that should be done for a write call.

The problem is currently that when you open a file with O_APPEND on a
mount with the directio mount option, the file position is set to the
beginning of the file. This makes any subsequent writes clobber the data
in the file starting at the beginning.

This seems to fix the problem in cursory testing. It is, however
important to note that NFS disallows the combination of
(O_DIRECT|O_APPEND). If my understanding is correct, the concern is
races with multiple clients appending to a file clobbering each others'
data. Since the write model for CIFS and NFS is pretty similar in this
regard, CIFS is probably subject to the same sort of races. What's
unclear to me is why this is a particular problem with O_DIRECT and not
with buffered writes...

Regardless, disallowing O_APPEND on an entire mount is probably not
reasonable, so we'll probably just have to deal with it and reevaluate
this flag combination when we get proper support for O_DIRECT. In the
meantime this patch at least fixes the existing problem.

sched: fix sched_rt_rq_enqueue() resched idle

When sysctl_sched_rt_runtime is set to something other than -1 and the
CONFIG_RT_GROUP_SCHED kernel parameter is NOT enabled, we get into a state
where we see one or more CPUs idling forvever even though there are
tasks in their rt runqueue that are able to run (no longer throttled).

The sequence is:

- A real-time task is running when the timer sets the rt runqueue
    to throttled, and the rt task is resched_task()ed and switched
    out, and idle is switched in since there are no non-rt tasks to
    run on that cpu.

- Eventually the do_sched_rt_period_timer() runs and un-throttles
    the rt runqueue, but we just exit the timer interrupt and go back
    to executing the idle task in the idle loop forever.

If we change the sched_rt_rq_enqueue() routine to use some of the code
from the CONFIG_RT_GROUP_SCHED enabled version of this same routine and
resched_task() the currently executing task (idle in our case) if it is
a lower priority task than the higher rt task in the now un-throttled
runqueue, the problem is no longer observed.

The bonds check to prevent buffer overlflow was not exactly
right.  It still allowed overflow of up to 8 bytes which is
sizeof(struct sctp_authkey).

Since optlen is already checked against the size of that struct,
we are guaranteed not to cause interger overflow either.

tty: Fix termios tty window resize race with pty/tty pair

Kanru Chen posted a patch versus the old code which deals with the case
where you resize the pty side of a pty/tty pair. In that situation the
termios data is updated for both pty and tty but the locks are not held
for the right side.

This implements the fix differently against the updated tty code. Patch

[CIFS] Fix plaintext authentication

The last eight bytes of the password field were not cleared when doing lanman plaintext password authentication. This patch fixes that.

I tested it with Samba by setting password
encryption to no in the server's smb.conf.  Other servers also can be
configured to force plaintext authentication.    Note that plaintexti
authentication requires setting /proc/fs/cifs/SecurityFlags to 0x30030
on the client (enabling both LANMAN and also plaintext password support).
Also note that LANMAN support (and thus plaintext password support) requires
CONFIG_CIFS_WEAK_PW_HASH to be enabled in menuconfig.
