11 years agoperf tools: Work around strict aliasing related warnings

Make it clear to GCC that we intend with those pointers, by passing
them through via an explicit (void *) cast.

We might want to add -fno-strict-aliasing as well, like the kernel
itself does.

11 years agoperf tools: Unify swapper tasks naming
Frederic Weisbecker [Mon, 31 Aug 2009 04:45:20 +0000]
perf tools: Unify swapper tasks naming

In perf tools, we hardcode the pid 0 cmdline resolving to
"idle" because the init task is not included in the COMM
events.

But the idle tasks secondary cpus are resolved into their
"init" name through the COMM events.

We have then such strange result in perf report (ditto with
trace):

    19.66%       init    [kernel]          [k] acpi_idle_enter_c1
    17.32%       [idle]  [kernel]          [k] acpi_idle_enter_c1

It's then better to unify the swapper tasks into a single init
name.

been dumped as root can be read (annotate/report) by a user
without the use of the --force.

11 years agoperf_counter: Start counting time enabled when group leader gets enabled
Paul Mackerras [Tue, 25 Aug 2009 05:17:20 +0000]
perf_counter: Start counting time enabled when group leader gets enabled

Currently, if a group is created where the group leader is
initially disabled but a non-leader member is initially
enabled, and then the leader is subsequently enabled some time
later, the time_enabled for the non-leader member will reflect
the whole time since it was created, not just the time since
the leader was enabled.

This is incorrect, because all of the members are effectively
disabled while the leader is disabled, since none of the
members can go on the PMU if the leader can't.

Thus we have to update the ->tstamp_enabled for all the enabled
group members when a group leader is enabled, so that the
time_enabled computation only counts the time since the leader
was enabled.

Similarly, when disabling a group leader we have to update the
time_enabled and time_running for all of the group members.

Also, in update_counter_times, we have to treat a counter whose
group leader is disabled as being disabled.

11 years agoperf_counter: powerpc: Add callchain support
Paul Mackerras [Mon, 17 Aug 2009 22:25:32 +0000]
perf_counter: powerpc: Add callchain support

This adds support for tracing callchains for powerpc, both 32-bit
and 64-bit, and both in the kernel and userspace, from PMU interrupt
context.

The first three entries stored for each callchain are the NIP (next
instruction pointer), LR (link register), and the contents of the LR
save area in the second stack frame (the first is ignored because the
ABI convention on powerpc is that functions save their return address
in their caller's stack frame).  Because leaf functions don't have to
save their return address (LR value) and don't have to establish a
stack frame, it's possible for either or both of LR and the second
stack frame's LR save area to have valid return addresses in them.
This is basically impossible to disambiguate without either reading
the code or looking at auxiliary information such as CFI tables.
Since we don't want to do either of those things at interrupt time,
we store both LR and the second stack frame's LR save area.

Once we get past the second stack frame, there is no ambiguity; all
return addresses we get are reliable.

For kernel traces, we check whether they are valid kernel instruction
addresses and store zero instead if they are not (rather than
omitting them, which would make it impossible for userspace to know
which was which).  We also store zero instead of the second stack
frame's LR save area value if it is the same as LR.

For kernel traces, we check for interrupt frames, and for user traces,
we check for signal frames.  In each case, since we're starting a new
trace, we store a PERF_CONTEXT_KERNEL/USER marker so that userspace
knows that the next three entries are NIP, LR and the second stack frame
for the interrupted context.

We read user memory with __get_user_inatomic.  On 64-bit, if this
PMU interrupt occurred while interrupts are soft-disabled, and
there is no MMU hash table entry for the page, we will get an
-EFAULT return from __get_user_inatomic even if there is a valid
Linux PTE for the page, since hash_page isn't reentrant.  Thus we
have code here to read the Linux PTE and access the page via the
kernel linear mapping.  Since 64-bit doesn't use (or need) highmem
there is no need to do kmap_atomic.  On 32-bit, we don't do soft
interrupt disabling, so this complication doesn't occur and there
is no need to fall back to reading the Linux PTE, since hash_page
(or the TLB miss handler) will get called automatically if necessary.

Note that we cannot get PMU interrupts in the interval during
context switch between switch_mm (which switches the user address
space) and switch_to (which actually changes current to the new
process).  On 64-bit this is because interrupts are hard-disabled
in switch_mm and stay hard-disabled until they are soft-enabled
later, after switch_to has returned.  So there is no possibility
of trying to do a user stack trace when the user address space is
not current's address space.

11 years agopowerpc: Allow perf_counters to access user memory at interrupt time
Paul Mackerras [Mon, 17 Aug 2009 05:17:54 +0000]
powerpc: Allow perf_counters to access user memory at interrupt time

This provides a mechanism to allow the perf_counters code to access
user memory in a PMU interrupt routine.  Such an access can cause
various kinds of interrupt: SLB miss, MMU hash table miss, segment
table miss, or TLB miss, depending on the processor.  This commit
only deals with 64-bit classic/server processors, which use an MMU
hash table.  32-bit processors are already able to access user memory
at interrupt time.  Since we don't soft-disable on 32-bit, we avoid
the possibility of reentering hash_page or the TLB miss handlers,
since they run with interrupts disabled.

On 64-bit processors, an SLB miss interrupt on a user address will
update the slb_cache and slb_cache_ptr fields in the paca.  This is
OK except in the case where a PMU interrupt occurs in switch_slb,
which also accesses those fields.  To prevent this, we hard-disable
interrupts in switch_slb.  Interrupts are already soft-disabled at
this point, and will get hard-enabled when they get soft-enabled
later.

This also reworks slb_flush_and_rebolt: to avoid hard-disabling twice,
and to make sure that it clears the slb_cache_ptr when called from
other callers than switch_slb, the existing routine is renamed to
__slb_flush_and_rebolt, which is called by switch_slb and the new
version of slb_flush_and_rebolt.

Similarly, switch_stab (used on POWER3 and RS64 processors) gets a
hard_irq_disable() to protect the per-cpu variables used there and
in ste_allocate.

If a MMU hashtable miss interrupt occurs, normally we would call
hash_page to look up the Linux PTE for the address and create a HPTE.
However, hash_page is fairly complex and takes some locks, so to
avoid the possibility of deadlock, we check the preemption count
to see if we are in a (pseudo-)NMI handler, and if so, we don't call
hash_page but instead treat it like a bad access that will get
reported up through the exception table mechanism.  An interrupt
whose handler runs even though the interrupt occurred when
soft-disabled (such as the PMU interrupt) is considered a pseudo-NMI
handler, which should use nmi_enter()/nmi_exit() rather than
irq_enter()/irq_exit().

11 years agopowerpc/32: Always order writes to halves of 64-bit PTEs
Paul Mackerras [Mon, 17 Aug 2009 04:36:32 +0000]
powerpc/32: Always order writes to halves of 64-bit PTEs

On 32-bit systems with 64-bit PTEs, the PTEs have to be written in two
32-bit halves.  On SMP we write the higher-order half and then the
lower-order half, with a write barrier between the two halves, but on
UP there was no particular ordering of the writes to the two halves.

This extends the ordering that we already do on SMP to the UP case as
well.  The reason is that with the perf_counter subsystem potentially
accessing user memory at interrupt time to get stack traces, we have
to be careful not to create an incorrect but apparently valid PTE even
on UP.

11 years agoperf tools: Add perf trace
Frederic Weisbecker [Mon, 17 Aug 2009 14:18:08 +0000]
perf tools: Add perf trace

This adds perf trace into the set of perf tools.

It is written to fetch the tracepoint samples from perf events
and display them, according to the events information given by
the debugfs files through the util/trace* tools.

It is a rough first shot and doesn't yet handle the cpu,
timestamps fields and some other things.

Example:

 perf record -f -e workqueue:workqueue_execution:record -F 1 -a
 perf trace

       kblockd/0-236   [000]     0.000000: workqueue_execution: thread=:236 func=cfq_kick_queue+0x0
     kondemand/0-360   [000]     0.000000: workqueue_execution: thread=:360 func=do_dbs_timer+0x0
     kondemand/0-360   [000]     0.000000: workqueue_execution: thread=:360 func=do_dbs_timer+0x0
     kondemand/1-361   [000]     0.000000: workqueue_execution: thread=:361 func=do_dbs_timer+0x0

11 years agoperf_counter: Check task on counter read IPI
Paul Mackerras [Fri, 14 Aug 2009 05:39:10 +0000]
perf_counter: Check task on counter read IPI

In general, code in perf_counter.c that is called through an
IPI checks, for per-task counters, that the counter's task is
still the current task.  This is to handle the race condition
where the cpu switches from the task we want to another task in
the interval between sending the IPI and the IPI arriving and
being handled on the target CPU.

For some reason, __perf_counter_read is missing this check, yet
there is no reason why the race condition can't occur.  This
adds a check that the current task is the one we want.  If it
isn't, we just return.  In that case the counter->count value
should be up to date, since it will have been updated when the
counter was scheduled out, which must have happened since the
IPI was sent.

I don't have an example of an actual failure due to this race,
but it seems obvious that it could occur and we need to guard
against it.

perf tools: Substract -Wformat-nonliteral from Wformat=2 in extra flags

The soon coming perf trace needs to use printf with dynamically
built formats.

But we are using -Wformat=2 which is a shortcut for the
following set: -Wformat -Wformat-security -Wformat-y2k
-Wformat-nonliteral

-Wformat-nonliteral warns when it can't check formats because
they are not builtin constant strings, but we want to feature
dynamic formats. What we want instead is Wformat=2 minus
-Wformat-nonliteral, which is what this patch does.

11 years agoperf: Enable more compiler warnings
Ingo Molnar [Sat, 15 Aug 2009 10:26:57 +0000]
perf: Enable more compiler warnings

Related to a shadowed variable bug fix Valdis Kletnieks noticed
that perf does not get built with -Wshadow, which could have
helped us avoid the bug.

So enable -Wshadow and also enable the following warnings on
perf builds, in addition to the already enabled -Wall -Wextra
-std=gnu99 warnings:

 -Wcast-align
 -Wformat=2
 -Wshadow
 -Winit-self
 -Wpacked
 -Wredundant-decls
 -Wstack-protector
 -Wstrict-aliasing=3
 -Wswitch-default
 -Wswitch-enum
 -Wno-system-headers
 -Wundef
 -Wvolatile-register-var
 -Wwrite-strings
 -Wbad-function-cast
 -Wmissing-declarations
 -Wmissing-prototypes
 -Wnested-externs
 -Wold-style-definition
 -Wstrict-prototypes
 -Wdeclaration-after-statement

And change/fix the perf code to build cleanly under GCC 4.3.2.

The list of warnings enablement is rather arbitrary: it's based
on my (quick) reading of the GCC manpages and trying them on
perf.

I categorized the warnings based on individually enabling them
and looking whether they trigger something in the perf build.
If i liked those warnings (i.e. if they trigger for something
that arguably could be improved) i enabled the warning.

If the warnings seemed to come from language laywers spamming
the build with tons of nuisance warnings i generally kept them
off. Most of the sign conversion related warnings were in
this category. (A second patch enabling some of the sign
warnings might be welcome - sign bugs can be nasty.)

I also kept warnings that seem to make sense from their manpage
description and which produced no actual warnings on our code
base. These warnings might still be turned off if they end up
being a nuisance.

I also left out a few warnings that are not supported in older
compilers.

[ Note that these changes might break the build on older
  compilers i did not test, or on non-x86 architectures that
  produce different warnings, so more testing would be welcome. ]

11 years agogenirq: prevent wakeup of freed irq thread
Linus Torvalds [Thu, 13 Aug 2009 20:05:10 +0000]
genirq: prevent wakeup of freed irq thread

free_irq() can remove an irqaction while the corresponding interrupt
is in progress, but free_irq() sets action->thread to NULL
unconditionally, which might lead to a NULL pointer dereference in
handle_IRQ_event() when the hard interrupt context tries to wake up
the handler thread.

Prevent this by moving the thread stop after synchronize_irq(). No
need to set action->thread to NULL either as action is going to be
freed anyway.

This fixes a boot crash reported against preempt-rt which uses the
mainline irq threads code to implement full irq threading.

[ tglx: removed local irqthread variable ]

Now, arguably this might be something that we could instead solve by
just specifying that all protocols should do it themselves at the

11 years agoperf_counter: Report the cloning task as parent on perf_counter_fork()
Peter Zijlstra [Thu, 13 Aug 2009 14:14:42 +0000]
perf_counter: Report the cloning task as parent on perf_counter_fork()

A bug in (9f498cc: perf_counter: Full task tracing) makes
profiling multi-threaded apps it go belly up.

[ output as: (PID:TID):(PPID:PTID) ]

 # ./perf report -D | grep FORK
0x4b0 [0x18]: PERF_EVENT_FORK: (3237:3237):(3236:3236)
0xa10 [0x18]: PERF_EVENT_FORK: (3237:3238):(3236:3236)
0xa70 [0x18]: PERF_EVENT_FORK: (3237:3239):(3236:3236)
0xad0 [0x18]: PERF_EVENT_FORK: (3237:3240):(3236:3236)
0xb18 [0x18]: PERF_EVENT_FORK: (3237:3241):(3236:3236)

Shows us that the test (27d028d perf report: Update for the new
FORK/EXIT events) in builtin-report.c:

        /*
         * A thread clone will have the same PID for both
         * parent and child.
         */
        if (thread == parent)
                return 0;

Will clearly fail.

The problem is that perf_counter_fork() reports the actual
parent, instead of the cloning thread.

Fixing that (with the below patch), yields:

 # ./perf report -D | grep FORK
0x4c8 [0x18]: PERF_EVENT_FORK: (1590:1590):(1589:1589)
0xbd8 [0x18]: PERF_EVENT_FORK: (1590:1591):(1590:1590)
0xc80 [0x18]: PERF_EVENT_FORK: (1590:1592):(1590:1590)
0x3338 [0x18]: PERF_EVENT_FORK: (1590:1593):(1590:1590)
0x66b0 [0x18]: PERF_EVENT_FORK: (1590:1594):(1590:1590)

Which both makes more sense and doesn't confuse perf report
anymore.

perf_counter: Fix an ipi-deadlock

perf_pending_counter() is called from IRQ context and will call
perf_counter_disable(), however perf_counter_disable() uses
smp_call_function_single() which doesn't fancy being used with
IRQs disabled due to IPI deadlocks.

Fix this by making it use the local __perf_counter_disable()
call and teaching the counter_sched_out() code about pending
disables as well.

This should cover the case where a counter migrates before the
pending queue gets processed.

The below removes the lock, this opens up race window, but not
worse than the swcounters already experience due to RCU

11 years agomd: allow upper limit for resync/reshape to be set when array is read-only
NeilBrown [Thu, 13 Aug 2009 00:41:50 +0000]
md: allow upper limit for resync/reshape to be set when array is read-only

Normally we only allow the upper limit for a reshape to be decreased
when the array not performing a sync/recovery/reshape, otherwise there
could be races.  But if an array is part-way through a reshape when it
is assembled the reshape is started immediately leaving no window
to set an upper bound.

If the array is started read-only, the reshape will be suspended until
the array becomes writable, so that provides a window during which it
is perfectly safe to reduce the upper limit of a reshape.

So: allow the upper limit (sync_max) to be reduced even if the reshape
thread is running, as long as the array is still read-only.

This happens at the beginning of a reshape that increases the number
of devices, at the end of a reshape that decreases the number of
devices, and continuously for a reshape that does not change the
number of devices.

The current code is correct for the "increase number of devices"
case as the critical section at the start is handled by userspace
performing a backup.

It does not work for reducing the number of devices, or the
no-change case.
For 'reducing', we need to invert the test.  For no-change we cannot
really be sure things will be safe, so simply require the array
to be read-only, which is how the user-space code which carefully
starts such arrays works.

11 years agomd: never advance 'events' counter by more than 1.
NeilBrown [Wed, 12 Aug 2009 23:54:02 +0000]
md: never advance 'events' counter by more than 1.

When assembling arrays, md allows two devices to have different event
counts as long as the difference is only '1'.  This is to cope with
a system failure between updating the metadata on two difference
devices.

However there are currently times when we update the event count by
2.  This was done to keep the event count even when the array is clean
and odd when it is dirty, which allows us to avoid writing common
update to spare devices and so allow those spares to go to sleep.

This is bad for the above reason.  So change it to never increase by
two.  This means that the alignment between 'odd/even' and
'clean/dirty' might take a little longer to attain, but that is only a
small cost.  The spares will get a few more updates but that will
still be spared (;-) most updates and can still go to sleep.

Prior to this patch there was a small chance that after a crash an
array would fail to assemble due to the overly large event count
mismatch.

11 years agoRemove double removal of blktrace directory
Alan D. Brunelle [Fri, 7 Aug 2009 16:01:08 +0000]
Remove double removal of blktrace directory

commit fd51d251e4cdb21f68e9dbc4336514d64a105a79
Author: Stefan Raspl <raspl@linux.vnet.ibm.com>
Date:   Tue May 19 09:59:08 2009 +0200

    blktrace: remove debugfs entries on bad path

added in an explicit invocation of debugfs_remove for bt->dir, in
blk_remove_buf_file_callback we are also getting the directory removed. On
occasion I am seeing memory corruption that I have bisected down to
this commit. [The testing involves a (long) series of I/O benchmarks
with blktrace invoked around the actual runs.] I believe that this
committed patch is correct, but the problem actually lies in the code
in blk_remove_buf_file_callback.

With this patch I am able to consistently get complete runs whereas
previously I could not get a single run to complete.

The first part of the patch simply moves the debugfs_remove below the
relay_close: the relay_close call will remove files under bt->dir, and
so we should not remove the directory until all the files we created
have been removed. (Note: This is not sufficient to fix the problem -
the file system code has ref counts on the directoy, so our invocation
does not cause the directory to actually be removed. Nonetheless, we
should not rely upon that feature.)

NFS: Fix an O_DIRECT Oops...

We can't call nfs_readdata_release()/nfs_writedata_release() without
first initialising and referencing args.context. Doing so inside
nfs_direct_read_schedule_segment()/nfs_direct_write_schedule_segment()
causes an Oops.

We should rather be calling nfs_readdata_free()/nfs_writedata_free() in
those cases.

Looking at the O_DIRECT code, the "struct nfs_direct_req" is already
referencing the nfs_open_context for us. Since the readdata and writedata
structures carry a reference to that, we can simplify things by getting rid
of the extra nfs_open_context references, so that we can replace all
instances of nfs_readdata_release()/nfs_writedata_release().

11 years agoperf_counter, x86: Fix/improve apic fallback
Ingo Molnar [Tue, 11 Aug 2009 08:40:08 +0000]
perf_counter, x86: Fix/improve apic fallback

Johannes Stezenbach reported that his Pentium-M based
laptop does not have the local APIC enabled by default,
and hence perfcounters do not get initialized.

Add a fallback for this case: allow non-sampled counters
and return with an error on sampled counters. This allows
'perf stat' to work out of box - and allows 'perf top'
and 'perf record' to fall back on a hrtimer based sampling
method.

( Passing 'lapic' on the boot line will allow hardware
  sampling to occur - but if the APIC is disabled
  permanently by the hardware then this fallback still
  allows more systems to use perfcounters. )

Also decouple perfcounter support from X86_LOCAL_APIC.

-v2: fix typo breaking counters on all other systems ...

ahci: add workaround for on-board 5723s on some gigabyte boards

Some gigabytes have on-board SIMG5723s connected to JMB ahcis.  These
are used to implement hardware raid.  Unfortunately some firmware
revisions on these 5723s don't bring the link down when all the
downstream ports are unoccupied while not responding to reset protocol
which makes libata think that there's device attached to the port but
is not responding and retry.  This results in painfully wrong boot
detection time for these ports when they're empty.

This patch quirks those boards such that ahci gives up after the
initial timeout.  Combined with parallel probing, this gives quick
enough probing and also is safe because SIMG5723 will respond to the
first try if any of the downstream ports is occupied.

11 years agopata_at91: fix resource release

pata_at91: fix resource release

Julias Lawall discovered that pata_at91 wasn't freeing a memory region
allocated with kzalloc() on init failure paths.  Upon review,
pata_at91 also seems to be doing unnecessary explicit resource
releases for managed resources too.  Convert memory allocation to
managed one and drop unnecessary explicit resource releases.
