uml: network interface hotplug error handling

This fixes a number of problems associated with network interface hotplug.

The userspace initialization function can fail in some cases, but the
failure was never passed back to eth_configure, which proceeded with the
configuration.  This results in a zombie device that is present, but can't
work.  This is fixed by allowing the initialization routines to return an
error, which is checked, and the configuration aborted on failure.

eth_configure failed to check for many failures.  Even when it did check,
it didn't undo whatever initializations has already happened, so a present,
but partially initialized and non-working device could result.  It now
checks everything that can fail, and bails out, undoing whatever had been
done.

The return value of eth_configure was always ignored, so it is now just
void.

(Dual Core) devices, with a variety of development platforms including those
avaliable from Analog Devices (BF533-EZKit, BF533-STAMP, BF537-STAMP,
BF561-EZKIT), and Bluetechnix!  Tinyboards.

The Blackfin architecture was jointly developed by Intel and Analog Devices
Inc.  (ADI) as the Micro Signal Architecture (MSA) core and introduced it in
December of 2000.  Since then ADI has put this core into its Blackfin
processor family of devices.  The Blackfin core has the advantages of a clean,
orthogonal,RISC-like microprocessor instruction set.  It combines a dual-MAC
(Multiply/Accumulate), state-of-the-art signal processing engine and
single-instruction, multiple-data (SIMD) multimedia capabilities into a single
instruction-set architecture.

ADSP-BF53x/BF56x Blackfin Processor Programming Reference
http://blackfin.uclinux.org/gf/download/frsrelease/29/2549/Blackfin_PRM.pdf

The Blackfin processor is already supported by major releases of gcc, and
there are binary and source rpms/tarballs for many architectures at:
http://blackfin.uclinux.org/gf/project/toolchain/frs There is complete
documentation, including "getting started" guides available at:

manipulation of the object.

Also the SLAB_DEBUG_INITIAL callback is only performed if the kernel was

Benjamin Herrenschmidt [Sun, 6 May 2007 21:50:02 +0000 (14:50 -0700)]
get_unmapped_area handles MAP_FIXED on powerpc

The current get_unmapped_area code calls the f_ops->get_unmapped_area or the
arch one (via the mm) only when MAP_FIXED is not passed.  That makes it
impossible for archs to impose proper constraints on regions of the virtual
address space.  To work around that, get_unmapped_area() then calls some
hugetlbfs specific hacks.

This cause several problems, among others:

- It makes it impossible for a driver or filesystem to do the same thing
  that hugetlbfs does (for example, to allow a driver to use larger page sizes
  to map external hardware) if that requires applying a constraint on the
  addresses (constraining that mapping in certain regions and other mappings
  out of those regions).

- Some archs like arm, mips, sparc, sparc64, sh and sh64 already want
  MAP_FIXED to be passed down in order to deal with aliasing issues.  The code
  is there to handle it...  but is never called.

This series of patches moves the logic to handle MAP_FIXED down to the various
arch/driver get_unmapped_area() implementations, and then changes the generic
code to always call them.  The hugetlbfs hacks then disappear from the generic
code.

Since I need to do some special 64K pages mappings for SPEs on cell, I need to
work around the first problem at least.  I have further patches thus
implementing a "slices" layer that handles multiple page sizes through slices
of the address space for use by hugetlbfs, the SPE code, and possibly others,
but it requires that serie of patches first/

There is still a potential (but not practical) issue due to the fact that
filesystems/drivers implemeting g_u_a will effectively bypass all arch checks.
 This is not an issue in practice as the only filesystems/drivers using that
hook are doing so for arch specific purposes in the first place.

There is also a problem with mremap that will completely bypass all arch
checks.  I'll try to address that separately, I'm not 100% certain yet how,
possibly by making it not work when the vma has a file whose f_ops has a
get_unmapped_area callback, and by making it use is_hugepage_only_range()
before expanding into a new area.

Also, I want to turn is_hugepage_only_range() into a more generic
is_normal_page_range() as that's really what it will end up meaning when used
in stack grow, brk grow and mremap.

None of the above "issues" however are introduced by this patch, they are
already there, so I think the patch can go ini for 2.6.22.

This patch:

Handle MAP_FIXED in powerpc's arch_get_unmapped_area() in all 3
implementations of it.

Before the OOM killer checks for the allocation constraint, it takes
callback_mutex.

constrained_alloc() iterates through each zone in the allocation zonelist

for gfp_mask is possible.  If a zone's node is not in the OOM-triggering
task's mems_allowed, it is not exiting, and we did not fail on a

callback_mutex to check the nearest exclusive ancestor of current's cpuset.
 This results in deadlock.

We now take callback_mutex after iterating through the zonelist since we

15 years agoQuicklists for page table pages
Christoph Lameter [Sun, 6 May 2007 21:49:50 +0000 (14:49 -0700)]
Quicklists for page table pages

On x86_64 this cuts allocation overhead for page table pages down to a
fraction (kernel compile / editing load.  TSC based measurement of times spend
in each function):

no quicklist

pte_alloc               1569048 4.3s(401ns/2.7us/179.7us)
pmd_alloc                780988 2.1s(337ns/2.7us/86.1us)
pud_alloc                780072 2.2s(424ns/2.8us/300.6us)
pgd_alloc                260022 1s(920ns/4us/263.1us)

quicklist:

pte_alloc                452436 573.4ms(8ns/1.3us/121.1us)
pmd_alloc                196204 174.5ms(7ns/889ns/46.1us)
pud_alloc                195688 172.4ms(7ns/881ns/151.3us)
pgd_alloc                 65228 9.8ms(8ns/150ns/6.1us)

pgd allocations are the most complex and there we see the most dramatic
improvement (may be we can cut down the amount of pgds cached somewhat?).  But
even the pte allocations still see a doubling of performance.

1. Proven code from the IA64 arch.

The method used here has been fine tuned for years and
is NUMA aware. It is based on the knowledge that accesses
to page table pages are sparse in nature. Taking a page
off the freelists instead of allocating a zeroed pages
allows a reduction of number of cachelines touched
in addition to getting rid of the slab overhead. So
performance improves. This is particularly useful if pgds
contain standard mappings. We can save on the teardown
and setup of such a page if we have some on the quicklists.
This includes avoiding lists operations that are otherwise
necessary on alloc and free to track pgds.

2. Light weight alternative to use slab to manage page size pages

Slab overhead is significant and even page allocator use
is pretty heavy weight. The use of a per cpu quicklist
means that we touch only two cachelines for an allocation.
There is no need to access the page_struct (unless arch code
needs to fiddle around with it). So the fast past just
means bringing in one cacheline at the beginning of the
page. That same cacheline may then be used to store the
page table entry. Or a second cacheline may be used
if the page table entry is not in the first cacheline of
the page. The current code will zero the page which means
touching 32 cachelines (assuming 128 byte). We get down
from 32 to 2 cachelines in the fast path.

3. x86_64 gets lightweight page table page management.

This will allow x86_64 arch code to faster repopulate pgds
and other page table entries. The list operations for pgds
are reduced in the same way as for i386 to the point where
a pgd is allocated from the page allocator and when it is
freed back to the page allocator. A pgd can pass through
the quicklists without having to be reinitialized.

64 Consolidation of code from multiple arches

So far arches have their own implementation of quicklist
management. This patch moves that feature into the core allowing
an easier maintenance and consistent management of quicklists.

Page table pages have the characteristics that they are typically zero or in a
known state when they are freed.  This is usually the exactly same state as
needed after allocation.  So it makes sense to build a list of freed page
table pages and then consume the pages already in use first.  Those pages have
already been initialized correctly (thus no need to zero them) and are likely
already cached in such a way that the MMU can use them most effectively.  Page
table pages are used in a sparse way so zeroing them on allocation is not too
useful.

Such an implementation already exits for ia64.  Howver, that implementation
did not support constructors and destructors as needed by i386 / x86_64.  It
also only supported a single quicklist.  The implementation here has
constructor and destructor support as well as the ability for an arch to
specify how many quicklists are needed.

Quicklists are defined by an arch defining CONFIG_QUICKLIST.  If more than one
quicklist is necessary then we can define NR_QUICK for additional lists.  F.e.
 i386 needs two and thus has

config NR_QUICK
int
default 2

If an arch has requested quicklist support then pages can be allocated
from the quicklist (or from the page allocator if the quicklist is
empty) via:

quicklist_alloc(<quicklist-nr>, <gfpflags>, <constructor>)

Page table pages can be freed using:

quicklist_free(<quicklist-nr>, <destructor>, <page>)

Pages must have a definite state after allocation and before
they are freed. If no constructor is specified then pages
will be zeroed on allocation and must be zeroed before they are
freed.

If a constructor is used then the constructor will establish
a definite page state. F.e. the i386 and x86_64 pgd constructors
establish certain mappings.

Constructors and destructors can also be used to track the pages.
i386 and x86_64 use a list of pgds in order to be able to dynamically
update standard mappings.

Also--as an anti-fragmentation measure--sort the partial slabs so that
the most fully allocated ones come first and the least allocated last.

The next allocations may fill up the nearly full slabs. Having the
least allocated slabs last gives them the maximum chance that their
remaining objects may be freed. Thus we can hopefully minimize the
partial slabs.

I think this is the best one can do in terms antifragmentation
measures. Real defragmentation (meaning moving objects out of slabs with
the least free objects to those that are almost full) can be implemted
by reverse scanning through the list produced here but that would mean
that we need to provide a callback at slab cache creation that allows

slub: validation of slabs (metadata and guard zones)

This enables validation of slab.  Validation means that all objects are
checked to see if there are redzone violations, if padding has been
overwritten or any pointers have been corrupted.  Also checks the consistency
of slab counters.

Validation enables the detection of metadata corruption without the kernel
having to execute code that actually uses (allocs/frees) and object.  It
allows one to make sure that the slab metainformation and the guard values
around an object have not been compromised.

A single slabcache can be checked by writing a 1 to the "validate" file.

i.e.

echo 1 >/sys/slab/kmalloc-128/validate

or use the slabinfo tool to check all slabs

slabinfo -v

Error messages will show up in the syslog.

Note that validation can only reach slabs that are on a list.  This means that
we are usually restricted to partial slabs and active slabs unless
SLAB_STORE_USER is active which will build a full slab list and allows
validation of slabs that are fully in use.  Booting with "slub_debug" set will
enable SLAB_STORE_USER and then full diagnostic are available.

Note that we attempt to push cpu slabs back to the lists when we start the
check.  If the cpu slab is reactivated before we get to it (another processor
grabs it before we get to it) then it cannot be checked.

Make page->private usable in compound pages

If we add a new flag so that we can distinguish between the first page and the
tail pages then we can avoid to use page->private in the first page.
page->private == page for the first page, so there is no real information in
there.

Freeing up page->private makes the use of compound pages more transparent.
They become more usable like real pages.  Right now we have to be careful f.e.
 if we are going beyond PAGE_SIZE allocations in the slab on i386 because we
can then no longer use the private field.  This is one of the issues that
cause us not to support debugging for page size slabs in SLAB.

Having page->private available for SLUB would allow more meta information in
the page struct.  I can probably avoid the 16 bit ints that I have in there
right now.

Also if page->private is available then a compound page may be equipped with
buffer heads.  This may free up the way for filesystems to support larger
blocks than page size.

We add PageTail as an alias of PageReclaim.  Compound pages cannot currently
be reclaimed.  Because of the alias one needs to check PageCompound first.
