md: improve the is_mddev_idle test

During a 'resync' or similar activity, md checks if the devices in the
array are otherwise active and winds back resync activity when they are.
This test in done in is_mddev_idle, and it is somewhat fragile - it
sometimes thinks there is non-sync io when there isn't.

The test compares the total sectors of io (disk_stat_read) with the sectors
of resync io (disk->sync_io).  This has problems because total sectors gets
updated when a request completes, while resync io gets updated when the
request is submitted.  The time difference can cause large differenced
between the two which do not actually imply non-resync activity.  The test
currently allows for some fuzz (+/- 4096) but there are some cases when it
is not enough.

The test currently looks for any (non-fuzz) difference, either positive or
negative.  This clearly is not needed.  Any non-sync activity will cause
the total sectors to grow faster than the sync_io count (never slower) so
we only need to look for a positive differences.

If we do this then the amount of in-flight sync io will never cause the
appearance of non-sync IO.  Once enough non-sync IO to worry about starts
happening, resync will be slowed down and the measurements will thus be
more precise (as there is less in-flight) and control of resync will still
be suitably responsive.

signal/timer/event: KAIO eventfd support example

This is an example about how to add eventfd support to the current KAIO code,
in order to enable KAIO to post readiness events to a pollable fd (hence
compatible with POSIX select/poll).  The KAIO code simply signals the eventfd
fd when events are ready, and this triggers a POLLIN in the fd.  This patch
uses a reserved for future use member of the struct iocb to pass an eventfd
file descriptor, that KAIO will use to post events every time a request
completes.  At that point, an aio_getevents() will return the completed result
to a struct io_event.  I made a quick test program to verify the patch, and it
runs fine here:

http://www.xmailserver.org/eventfd-aio-test.c

The test program uses poll(2), but it'd, of course, work with select and epoll
too.

This can allow to schedule both block I/O and other poll-able devices
requests, and wait for results using select/poll/epoll.  In a typical
scenario, an application would submit KAIO request using aio_submit(), and
will also use epoll_ctl() on the whole other class of devices (that with the
addition of signals, timers and user events, now it's pretty much complete),
and then would:

epoll_wait(...);
for_each_event {
if (curr_event_is_kaiofd) {
aio_getevents();
dispatch_aio_events();
} else {
dispatch_epoll_event();

Davide Libenzi [Fri, 11 May 2007 05:23:19 +0000 (22:23 -0700)]
signal/timer/event: eventfd core

This is a very simple and light file descriptor, that can be used as event
wait/dispatch by userspace (both wait and dispatch) and by the kernel
(dispatch only).  It can be used instead of pipe(2) in all cases where those
would simply be used to signal events.  Their kernel overhead is much lower
than pipes, and they do not consume two fds.  When used in the kernel, it can
offer an fd-bridge to enable, for example, functionalities like KAIO or
syslets/threadlets to signal to an fd the completion of certain operations.
But more in general, an eventfd can be used by the kernel to signal readiness,
in a POSIX poll/select way, of interfaces that would otherwise be incompatible
with it.  The API is:

int eventfd(unsigned int count);

The eventfd API accepts an initial "count" parameter, and returns an eventfd
fd.  It supports poll(2) (POLLIN, POLLOUT, POLLERR), read(2) and write(2).

The POLLIN flag is raised when the internal counter is greater than zero.

The POLLOUT flag is raised when at least a value of "1" can be written to the
internal counter.

The POLLERR flag is raised when an overflow in the counter value is detected.

The write(2) operation can never overflow the counter, since it blocks (unless
O_NONBLOCK is set, in which case -EAGAIN is returned).

But the eventfd_signal() function can do it, since it's supposed to not sleep
during its operation.

The read(2) function reads the __u64 counter value, and reset the internal
value to zero.  If the value read is equal to (__u64) -1, an overflow happened
on the internal counter (due to 2^64 eventfd_signal() posts that has never
been retired - unlickely, but possible).

The write(2) call writes an __u64 count value, and adds it to the current
counter.  The eventfd fd supports O_NONBLOCK also.

On the kernel side, we have:

struct file *eventfd_fget(int fd);
int eventfd_signal(struct file *file, unsigned int n);

The eventfd_fget() should be called to get a struct file* from an eventfd fd
(this is an fget() + check of f_op being an eventfd fops pointer).

The kernel can then call eventfd_signal() every time it wants to post an event
to userspace.  The eventfd_signal() function can be called from any context.
An eventfd() simple test and bench is available here:

http://www.xmailserver.org/eventfd-bench.c

This is the eventfd-based version of pipetest-4 (pipe(2) based):

http://www.xmailserver.org/pipetest-4.c

Not that performance matters much in the eventfd case, but eventfd-bench
shows almost as double as performance than pipetest-4.

signal/timer/event: timerfd core

This patch introduces a new system call for timers events delivered though
file descriptors.  This allows timer event to be used with standard POSIX
poll(2), select(2) and read(2).  As a consequence of supporting the Linux
f_op->poll subsystem, they can be used with epoll(2) too.

The system call is defined as:

int timerfd(int ufd, int clockid, int flags, const struct itimerspec *utmr);

The "ufd" parameter allows for re-use (re-programming) of an existing timerfd
w/out going through the close/open cycle (same as signalfd).  If "ufd" is -1,
s new file descriptor will be created, otherwise the existing "ufd" will be
re-programmed.

The "clockid" parameter is either CLOCK_MONOTONIC or CLOCK_REALTIME.  The time
specified in the "utmr->it_value" parameter is the expiry time for the timer.

If the TFD_TIMER_ABSTIME flag is set in "flags", this is an absolute time,
otherwise it's a relative time.

If the time specified in the "utmr->it_interval" is not zero (.tv_sec == 0,
tv_nsec == 0), this is the period at which the following ticks should be
generated.

The "utmr->it_interval" should be set to zero if only one tick is requested.
Setting the "utmr->it_value" to zero will disable the timer, or will create a
timerfd without the timer enabled.

The function returns the new (or same, in case "ufd" is a valid timerfd
descriptor) file, or -1 in case of error.

As stated before, the timerfd file descriptor supports poll(2), select(2) and
epoll(2).  When a timer event happened on the timerfd, a POLLIN mask will be
returned.

The read(2) call can be used, and it will return a u32 variable holding the
number of "ticks" that happened on the interface since the last call to
read(2).  The read(2) call supportes the O_NONBLOCK flag too, and EAGAIN will
be returned if no ticks happened.

kernel delivery in dequeue_signal().  If you want to reliably fetch signals on
the signalfd file, you need to block them with sigprocmask(SIG_BLOCK).  This
seems to be working fine on my Dual Opteron machine.  I made a quick test
program for it:

http://www.xmailserver.org/signafd-test.c

The signalfd() system call implements signal delivery into a file descriptor
receiver.  The signalfd file descriptor if created with the following API:

int signalfd(int ufd, const sigset_t *mask, size_t masksize);

The "ufd" parameter allows to change an existing signalfd sigmask, w/out going
to close/create cycle (Linus idea).  Use "ufd" == -1 if you want a brand new
signalfd file.

The "mask" allows to specify the signal mask of signals that we are interested
in.  The "masksize" parameter is the size of "mask".

The signalfd fd supports the poll(2) and read(2) system calls.  The poll(2)
will return POLLIN when signals are available to be dequeued.  As a direct
consequence of supporting the Linux poll subsystem, the signalfd fd can use
used together with epoll(2) too.

The read(2) system call will return a "struct signalfd_siginfo" structure in
the userspace supplied buffer.  The return value is the number of bytes copied
in the supplied buffer, or -1 in case of error.  The read(2) call can also
return 0, in case the sighand structure to which the signalfd was attached,
has been orphaned.  The O_NONBLOCK flag is also supported, and read(2) will
return -EAGAIN in case no signal is available.

If the size of the buffer passed to read(2) is lower than sizeof(struct
signalfd_siginfo), -EINVAL is returned.  A read from the signalfd can also
return -ERESTARTSYS in case a signal hits the process.  The format of the
struct signalfd_siginfo is, and the valid fields depends of the (->code &
__SI_MASK) value, in the same way a struct siginfo would:

struct signalfd_siginfo {
__u32 signo; /* si_signo */
__s32 err; /* si_errno */
__s32 code; /* si_code */
__u32 pid; /* si_pid */

Benjamin Herrenschmidt [Fri, 11 May 2007 05:22:46 +0000 (22:22 -0700)]
Add hard_irq_disable()

Some architectures, like powerpc, implement lazy disabling of interrupts.
That means that on those, local_irq_disable() doesn't actually disable
interrupts on the CPU, but only sets some per CPU flag which cause them to be
disabled only if an interrupt actually occurs.

However, in some cases, such as stop_machine, we really want interrupts to be
fully disabled.  For example, I have code using stop machine to do ECC error
injection, used to verify operations of the ECC hardware, that sort of thing.
It really needs to make sure that nothing is actually writing to memory while
the injection happens.  Similar examples can be found in other low level bits
and pieces.

This patch implements a generic hard_irq_disable() function which is meant to
be called -after- local_irq_disable() and ensures that interrupts are fully
disabled on that CPU.  The default implementation is a nop, though powerpc
does already provide an appropriate one.

CompactFlash interface.

Add print_hex_dump() & hex_dumper() to lib/hexdump.c and linux/kernel.h.

This patch adds the functions print_hex_dump() & hex_dumper().
print_hex_dump() can be used to perform a hex + ASCII dump of data to
syslog, in an easily viewable format, thus providing a common text hex dump

hex_dumper() provides a dump-to-memory function.  It converts one "line" of
output (16 bytes of input) at a time.

Example usages:
print_hex_dump(KERN_DEBUG, DUMP_PREFIX_ADDRESS, frame->data, frame->len);

14 years agouml: iRQ stacks
Jeff Dike [Fri, 11 May 2007 05:22:34 +0000 (22:22 -0700)]
uml: iRQ stacks

Add a separate IRQ stack.  This differs from i386 in having the entire
interrupt run on a separate stack rather than starting on the normal kernel
stack and switching over once some preparation has been done.  The underlying
mechanism, is of course, sigaltstack.

Another difference is that interrupts that happen in userspace are handled on
the normal kernel stack.  These cause a wait wakeup instead of a signal
delivery so there is no point in trying to switch stacks for these.  There's
no other stuff on the stack, so there is no extra stack consumption.

This quirk makes it possible to have the entire interrupt run on a separate
stack - process preemption (and calls to schedule()) happens on a normal
kernel stack.  If we enable CONFIG_PREEMPT, this will need to be rethought.

The IRQ stack for CPU 0 is declared in the same way as the initial kernel
stack.  IRQ stacks for other CPUs will be allocated dynamically.

An extra field was added to the thread_info structure.  When the active
thread_info is copied to the IRQ stack, the real_thread field points back to
the original stack.  This makes it easy to tell where to copy the thread_info
struct back to when the interrupt is finished.  It also serves as a marker of
a nested interrupt.  It is NULL for the first interrupt on the stack, and
non-NULL for any nested interrupts.

Care is taken to behave correctly if a second interrupt comes in when the
thread_info structure is being set up or taken down.  I could just disable
interrupts here, but I don't feel like giving up any of the performance gained
by not flipping signals on and off.

If an interrupt comes in during these critical periods, the handler can't run
because it has no idea what shape the stack is in.  So, it sets a bit for its
signal in a global mask and returns.  The outer handler will deal with this
signal itself.

Atomicity is had with xchg.  A nested interrupt that needs to bail out will
xchg its signal mask into pending_mask and repeat in case yet another
interrupt hit at the same time, until the mask stabilizes.

The outermost interrupt will set up the thread_info and xchg a zero into
pending_mask when it is done.  At this point, nested interrupts will look at
->real_thread and see that no setup needs to be done.  They can just continue
normally.

Similar care needs to be taken when exiting the outer handler.  If another
interrupt comes in while it is copying the thread_info, it will drop a bit
into pending_mask.  The outer handler will check this and if it is non-zero,
will loop, set up the stack again, and handle the interrupt.

assuming that the m32r kernel is always compiled with
-fomit-frame-pointer option.

However, in 2.6 kernel, kernel/sched.c is irregularly compiled
with -fno-omit-frame-pointer if CONFIG_SCHED_NO_NO_OMIT_FRAME_POINTER

VM statistics: Make timer deferrable

VM statistics updates do not matter if the kernel is in idle powersaving
mode.  So allow the timer to be deferred.

It would be better though if we could switch the timer between deferrable
and nondeferrable based on differentials present.  The timer would start
out nondeferrable and if we find that there were no updates in the last
statistics interval then we would switch the timer to deferrable.  If the
timer later finds again that there are differentials then go to
nondeferrable again.

And yet another way would be to run the timer shortly before going to idle?

The solution here means that the VM counters may be slightly off during
idle since differentials may be still pending while the timer is deferred.

onto noop_qdisc.  This causes a warning to be printed.

This patch fixes this by checking this before we requeue.  As an added
bonus, we can remove the same check in __qdisc_run which was added to
prevent dev->gso_skb from being requeued when we're shutting down.

Even though we've had to add a new conditional in its place, it's better
because it only happens on requeues rather than every single time that
qdisc_run is called.

For this to work we also need to move the clearing of gso_skb up in
dev_deactivate as now qdisc_restart can occur even after we wait for
__LINK_STATE_QDISC_RUNNING to clear (but it won't do anything as long
