Linus Torvalds [Fri, 17 Apr 2009 16:59:27 +0000]
Get rid of final remnants of include/asm-$(ARCH)

This renames include/asm-h8300/timer.h into arch/h8300/include/asm: it
was left over just because that file had been created in the -mm tree
before the whole h8300 header subdirectory had been moved, and then got
merged in the old location afterwards.

(See commits e0b0f9e4ead2468f84c26332ec42b118e76af572: "h8300: update
timer handler - new files" and 758db3f2118703a1e36374dae5d58bed963e7e0d:
"[h8300] move include/asm-h8300 to arch/h8300/include/asm" for details).

This also removes a left-over .gitignore file in include/asm-arm that
became stale when the ARM header files were moved (which happened in
multiple commits, just see "git log -- include/asm-arm" for details).

Pallipadi, Venkatesh [Wed, 8 Apr 2009 22:37:16 +0000]
x86, PAT: Remove page granularity tracking for vm_insert_pfn maps

This change resolves the problem of too many single page entries
in pat_memtype_list and "freeing invalid memtype" errors with i915,
reported here:

  http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=123845244713183&w=2

Remove page level granularity track and untrack of vm_insert_pfn.
memtype tracking at page granularity does not scale and cleaner
approach would be for the driver to request a type for a bigger
IO address range or PCI io memory range for that device, either at
mmap time or driver init time and just use that type during
vm_insert_pfn.

This patch just removes the track/untrack of vm_insert_pfn. That
means we will be in same state as 2.6.28, with respect to these APIs.

Newer APIs for the drivers to request a memtype for a bigger region
is coming soon.

11 years agomm: pass correct mm when growing stack
Hugh Dickins [Thu, 16 Apr 2009 20:58:12 +0000]
mm: pass correct mm when growing stack

Tetsuo Handa reports seeing the WARN_ON(current->mm == NULL) in
security_vm_enough_memory(), when do_execve() is touching the
target mm's stack, to set up its args and environment.

Yes, a UMH_NO_WAIT or UMH_WAIT_PROC call_usermodehelper() spawns
an mm-less kernel thread to do the exec.  And in any case, that
vm_enough_memory check when growing stack ought to be done on the
target mm, not on the execer's mm (though apart from the warning,
it only makes a slight tweak to OVERCOMMIT_NEVER behaviour).

11 years agoRevert "kobject: don't block for each kobject_uevent".
Hugh Dickins [Thu, 16 Apr 2009 20:55:29 +0000]
Revert "kobject: don't block for each kobject_uevent".

This reverts commit f520360d93cdc37de5d972dac4bf3bdef6a7f6a7.

Tetsuo Handa, running a kernel with CONFIG_DEBUG_PAGEALLOC=y and
CONFIG_UEVENT_HELPER_PATH=/sbin/hotplug, has been hitting RCU detected
CPU stalls: it's been spinning in the loop where do_execve() counts up
the args (but why wasn't fixup_exception working? dunno).

The recent change, switching kobject_uevent_env() from UMH_WAIT_EXEC
to UMH_NO_WAIT, is broken: the exec uses args on the local stack here,
and an env which is kfreed as soon as call_usermodehelper() returns.
It very much needs to wait for the exec to be done.

An alternative would be to keep the UMH_NO_WAIT, and complicate the code
to allocate and free these resources correctly? but no, as GregKH
pointed out when making the commit, CONFIG_UEVENT_HELPER_PATH="" is a
much better optimization - though some distros are still saying
/sbin/hotplug in their .config, yet with no such binary in their initrd
or their root.

x86: UV BAU distribution and payload MMRs

This patch correctly sets BAU memory mapped registers to point
to the sending activation descriptor table and target payload table.

The "Broadcast Assist Unit" is used for TLB shootdown in UV.

The memory mapped registers that point to sending and receiving
memory structures contain node numbers.

In one case the __pa() function did not provide the node id of
memory on blade zero in configurations where that id is nonzero.
In another case, it was assumed that memory was allocated on
the local node.  That assumption is not true in a configuration
in which the node has no memory.

Tested on the UV hardware simulator.

RCU: Don't try and predeclare inline funcs as it upsets some versions of gcc

Don't try and predeclare inline funcs like this:

...
static void _rcu_barrier(enum rcu_barrier type)
{

}
...
static inline void wait_migrated_callbacks(void)
{
wait_event(rcu_migrate_wq, !atomic_read(&rcu_migrate_type_count));
}

as it upsets some versions of gcc under some circumstances:

kernel/rcupdate.c: In function `_rcu_barrier':
kernel/rcupdate.c:125: sorry, unimplemented: inlining failed in call to 'wait_migrated_callbacks': function body not available
kernel/rcupdate.c:152: sorry, unimplemented: called from here

This can be dealt with by simply putting the static variables (rcu_migrate_*)
at the top, and moving the implementation of the function up so that it
replaces its forward declaration.

MN10300: Stop gcc from generating uninitialised variable warnings after BUG()

Stop gcc from generating uninitialised variable warnings after BUG().  The
problem is that MN10300's implementation of BUG() invokes system call 15 which
doesn't return - but there's no way to tell the compiler that and also emit the
bug table element with the correct file and line data.

So instead, we make the do...while wrapper in _debug_bug_trap() an endless loop
from which there's no escape.

Also, while we're at it, (1) get rid of _debug_bug_trap() and just implement
directly as BUG(), and (2) make the implementation of BUG() contingent on
CONFIG_BUG=y.

Linus Torvalds [Wed, 15 Apr 2009 15:05:13 +0000]
acpi-cpufreq: fix 'smp_call_function_many()' confusion

It turns out that 'smp_call_function_many()' doesn't work at all like
'smp_call_function_single()', and my change to Andrew's patch to use it
rather than a loop over all CPU's acpi-cpufreq doesn't work.

My bad.

'smp_call_function_many()' has two "features" (aka "documented bugs"):

 (a) it needs to be called with preemption disabled, because it uses
     smp_processor_id() without guarding the CPU lookup with 'get_cpu()'
     and 'put_cpu()' like the 'single' variant does.

 (b) even if the current CPU is part of the CPU mask, it won't do the
     call on that CPU.

Still, we're better off trying to use 'smp_call_function_many()' than
looping over CPU's, since it at least in theory allows us to use a
broadcast IPI and do it all in parallel.  So let's just work around the
silly semantic bugs in that function.

11 years agocfq-iosched: add close cooperator code
Jens Axboe [Wed, 15 Apr 2009 10:15:11 +0000]
cfq-iosched: add close cooperator code

If we have processes that are working in close proximity to each
other on disk, we don't want to idle wait. Instead allow the close
process to issue a request, getting better aggregate bandwidth.
The anticipatory scheduler has similar checks, noop and deadline do
not need it since they don't care about process <-> io mappings.

The code for CFQ is a little more involved though, since we split
request queues into per-process contexts.

This fixes a performance problem with eg dump(8), since it uses
several processes in some silly attempt to speed IO up. Even if
dump(8) isn't really a valid case (it should be fixed by using
CLONE_IO), there are other cases where we see close processes
and where idling ends up hurting performance.

Credit goes to Jeff Moyer <jmoyer@redhat.com> for writing the
initial implementation.

brd is missing a flush_dcache_page. On 2nd thoughts, perhaps it is the
pagecache's responsibility to flush user virtual aliases (the driver of
course should flush kernel virtual mappings)... but anyway, there
already exists cache flushing for one direction of transfer, so we
should add the other.

11 years agosplice: add helpers for locking pipe inode
Miklos Szeredi [Tue, 14 Apr 2009 17:48:41 +0000]
splice: add helpers for locking pipe inode

There are lots of sequences like this, especially in splice code:

if (pipe->inode)
mutex_lock(&pipe->inode->i_mutex);
/* do something */
if (pipe->inode)
mutex_unlock(&pipe->inode->i_mutex);

so introduce helpers which do the conditional locking and unlocking.
Also replace the inode_double_lock() call with a pipe_double_lock()
helper to avoid spreading the use of this functionality beyond the
pipe code.

This patch is just a cleanup, and should cause no behavioral changes.

cfq-iosched: don't delay queue kick for a merged request

"Zhang, Yanmin" <yanmin_zhang@linux.intel.com> reports that commit
b029195dda0129b427c6e579a3bb3ae752da3a93 introduced a regression
of about 50% with sequential threaded read workloads. The test
case is:

tiotest -k0 -k1 -k3 -f 80 -t 32

which starts 32 threads each reading a 80MB file. Twiddle the kick
queue logic so that we do start IO immediately, if it appears to be
a fully merged request. We can't really detect that, so just check
if the request is bigger than a page or not. The assumption is that
since single bio issues will first queue a single request with just
one page attached and then later do merges on that, if we already
have more than a page worth of data in the request, then the request
is most likely good to go.

Verified that this doesn't cause a regression with the test case that
commit b029195dda0129b427c6e579a3bb3ae752da3a93 was fixing. It does not,
we still see maximum sized requests for the queue-then-merge cases.

Richard Henderson pointed out that the powerpc __futex_atomic_op has a
bug: it will write the wrong value if the stwcx. fails and it has to
retry the lwarx/stwcx. loop, since 'oparg' will have been overwritten
by the result from the first time around the loop.  This happens
because it uses the same register for 'oparg' (an input) as it uses
for the result.

This fixes it by using separate registers for 'oparg' and 'ret'.

11 years agopowerpc/pseries: Set error_state to pci_channel_io_normal in eeh_report_reset()
Mike Mason [Fri, 10 Apr 2009 08:57:03 +0000]
powerpc/pseries: Set error_state to pci_channel_io_normal in eeh_report_reset()

While adding native EEH support to Emulex and Qlogic drivers, it was
discovered that dev->error_state was set to pci_io_channel_normal too
late in the recovery process. These drivers rely on error_state to
determine if they can access the device in their slot_reset callback,
thus error_state needs to be set to pci_io_channel_normal in
eeh_report_reset(). Below is a detailed explanation (courtesy of Richard
Lary) as to why this is necessary.

Background:
PCI MMIO or DMA accesses to a frozen slot generate additional EEH
errors. If the number of additional EEH errors exceeds EEH_MAX_FAILS the
adapter will be shutdown. To avoid triggering excessive EEH errors and
an undesirable adapter shutdown, some drivers use the
pci_channel_offline(dev) wrapper function to return a Boolean value
based on the value of pci_dev->error_state to determine if PCI MMIO or
DMA accesses are safe. If the wrapper returns TRUE, drivers must not
make PCI MMIO or DMA access to their hardware.

The pci_dev structure member error_state reflects one of three values,
1) pci_channel_io_normal, 2) pci_channel_io_frozen, 3)
pci_channel_io_perm_failure.  Function pci_channel_offline(dev) returns
TRUE if error_state is pci_channel_io_frozen or pci_channel_io_perm_failure.

The EEH driver sets pci_dev->error_state to pci_channel_io_frozen at the
point where the PCI slot is frozen. Currently, the EEH driver restores
dev->error_state to pci_channel_io_normal in eeh_report_resume() before
calling the driver's resume callback. However, when the EEH driver calls
the driver's slot_reset callback() from eeh_report_reset(), it
incorrectly indicates the error state is still pci_channel_io_frozen.

Waiting until eeh_report_resume() to restore dev->error_state to
pci_channel_io_normal is too late for Emulex and QLogic FC drivers and
any other drivers which are designed to use common code paths in these
two cases: i) those called after the driver's slot_reset callback() and
ii) those called after the PCI slot is frozen but before the driver's
slot_reset callback is called. Case i) all driver paths executed to
reinitialize the hardware after a reset and case ii) all code paths
executed by driver kernel threads that run asynchronous to the main
driver thread, such as interrupt handlers and worker threads to process
driver work queues.

Emulex and QLogic FC drivers are designed with common code paths which
require that pci_channel_offline(dev) reflect the true state of the
hardware. The state transitions that the hardware takes from Normal
Operations to Slot Frozen to Reset to Normal Operations are documented
in the Power Architecture™ Platform Requirements+ (PAPR+) in Table 75.
PE State Control.

PAPR defines the following 3 states:

0 -- Not reset, Not EEH stopped, MMIO load/store allowed, DMA allowed
     (Normal Operations)
1 -- Reset, Not EEH stopped, MMIO load/store disabled, DMA disabled
2 -- Not reset, EEH stopped, MMIO load/store disabled, DMA disabled
     (Slot Frozen)

An EEH error places the slot in state 2 (Frozen) and the adapter driver
is notified that an EEH error was detected. If the adapter driver
returns PCI_ERS_RESULT_NEED_RESET, the EEH driver calls
eeh_reset_device() to place the slot into state 1 (Reset) and
eeh_reset_device completes by placing the slot into State 0 (Normal
Operations). Upon return from eeh_reset_device(), the EEH driver calls
eeh_report_reset, which then calls the adapter's slot_reset callback. At
the time the adapter's slot_reset callback is called, the true state of
the hardware is Normal Operations and should be accurately reflected by
setting dev->error_state to pci_channel_io_normal.

The current implementation of EEH driver does not do so and requires
this change to correct this deficiency.
