14 years agox86: support always running TSC on Intel CPUs
Venki Pallipadi [Tue, 18 Nov 2008 00:11:37 +0000 (16:11 -0800)]
x86: support always running TSC on Intel CPUs

Impact: reward non-stop TSCs with good TSC-based clocksources, etc.

Add support for CPUID_0x80000007_Bit8 on Intel CPUs as well. This bit means
that the TSC is invariant with C/P/T states and always runs at constant

With Intel CPUs, we have 3 classes
* CPUs where TSC runs at constant rate and does not stop n C-states
* CPUs where TSC runs at constant rate, but will stop in deep C-states
* CPUs where TSC rate will vary based on P/T-states and TSC will stop in deep

To cover these 3, one feature bit (CONSTANT_TSC) is not enough. So, add a
second bit (NONSTOP_TSC). CONSTANT_TSC indicates that the TSC runs at
constant frequency irrespective of P/T-states, and NONSTOP_TSC indicates
that TSC does not stop in deep C-states.

CPUID_0x8000000_Bit8 indicates both these feature bit can be set.
We still have CONSTANT_TSC _set_ and NONSTOP_TSC _not_set_ on some older Intel
CPUs, based on model checks. We can use TSC on such CPUs for time, as long as
those CPUs do not support/enter deep C-states.

powerpc/cell/axon-msi: Fix MSI after kexec

Commit d015fe995 'powerpc/cell/axon-msi: Retry on missing interrupt'
has turned a rare failure to kexec on QS22 into a reproducible
error, which we have now analysed.

The problem is that after a kexec, the MSIC hardware still points
into the middle of the old ring buffer.  We set up the ring buffer
during reboot, but not the offset into it.  On older kernels, this
would cause a storm of thousands of spurious interrupts after a
kexec, which would most of the time get dropped silently.

With the new code, we time out on each interrupt, waiting for
it to become valid.  If more interrupts come in that we time
out on, this goes on indefinitely, which eventually leads to
a hard crash.

The solution in this commit is to read the current offset from
the MSIC when reinitializing it.  This now works correctly, as

powerpc: Fix bootmem reservation on uninitialized node

careful_allocation() was calling into the bootmem allocator for
nodes which had not been fully initialized and caused a previous
bug:  http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/10528/  So, I merged a
few broken out loops in do_init_bootmem() to fix it.  That changed
the code ordering.

I think this bug is triggered by having reserved areas for a node
which are spanned by another node's contents.  In the
mark_reserved_regions_for_nid() code, we attempt to reserve the
area for a node before we have allocated the NODE_DATA() for that
nid.  We do this since I reordered that loop.  I suck.

This is causing crashes at bootup on some systems, as reported
by Jon Tollefson.

This may only present on some systems that have 16GB pages
reserved.  But, it can probably happen on any system that is
trying to reserve large swaths of memory that happen to span other
nodes' contents.

This commit ensures that we do not touch bootmem for any node which
has not been initialized, and also removes a compile warning about
an unused variable.

14 years agoconsole ASCII glyph 1:1 mapping
Ingo Brueckl [Wed, 10 Dec 2008 22:35:00 +0000 (23:35 +0100)]
console ASCII glyph 1:1 mapping

For the console, there is a 1:1 mapping of glyphs which cannot be found
in the current font.  This seems to be meant as a kind of 'emergency
fallback' for fonts without unicode mapping which otherwise would
display nothing readable on the screen.

At the moment it affects all chars for which no substitution character
is defined.  In particular this means that for all chars (>= 128) where
there is no iso88591-1/unicode character (e.g.  control character area)
you'll get the very strange 1:1 mapping of the (cp437) graphics card

I'm pretty sure that the 1:1 mapping should only affect strict ASCII
code characters, i.e.  chars < 128.

The patch limits the mapping as it probably was meant anyway.

mapping is U+00a6 (broken bar).

Hugh Dickins [Wed, 10 Dec 2008 20:48:52 +0000 (20:48 +0000)]
fix mapping_writably_mapped()

Lee Schermerhorn noticed yesterday that I broke the mapping_writably_mapped
test in 2.6.7!  Bad bad bug, good good find.

The i_mmap_writable count must be incremented for VM_SHARED (just as
i_writecount is for VM_DENYWRITE, but while holding the i_mmap_lock)
when dup_mmap() copies the vma for fork: it has its own more optimal
version of __vma_link_file(), and I missed this out.  So the count
was later going down to 0 (dangerous) when one end unmapped, then
wrapping negative (inefficient) when the other end unmapped.

The only impact on x86 would have been that setting a mandatory lock on
a file which has at some time been opened O_RDWR and mapped MAP_SHARED
(but not necessarily PROT_WRITE) across a fork, might fail with -EAGAIN
when it should succeed, or succeed when it should fail.

But those architectures which rely on flush_dcache_page() to flush
userspace modifications back into the page before the kernel reads it,
may in some cases have skipped the flush after such a fork - though any
repetitive test will soon wrap the count negative, in which case it will
flush_dcache_page() unnecessarily.

Fix would be a two-liner, but mapping variable added, and comment moved.

MN10300: Discard low-priority Tx interrupts when closing an on-chip serial port

Discard low-prioriy Tx interrupts when closing an MN10300 on-chip serial port.

The MN10300 on-chip serial port uses three interrupts to manage its serial

 (1) A very high priority interrupt that drives virtual DMA for Rx.

 (2) A very high priority interrupt that drives virtual DMA for Tx.

 (3) A normal priority virtual interrupt that does the normal UART interrupt
     stuff and is shared between Rx and Tx.

mn10300_serial_stop_tx() only disables the high priority Tx interrupt.  It
doesn't also disable the normal priority one because it is shared with Rx.

However, the high priority interrupt may interrupt local_irq_disabled()
sections, and so may have queued up a low priority virtual interrupt whilst the
UART driver is asking for the Tx interrupt to be disabled.

The result of this can be an oops when we try to process the interrupt in
mn10300_serial_transmit_interrupt() as port->uart.info and port->uart.info->tty
may have gone away.

To deal with this, if either of those pointers is NULL, we make sure the
high-priority Tx interrupt is disabled and discard the interrupt.  The low
priority interrupt is disabled by the mn10300_serial_pic irq_chip table.

inotify: fix IN_ONESHOT unmount event watcher

On umount two event will be dispatched to watcher:

1: inotify_dev_queue_event(.., IN_UNMOUNT,..)
2: remove_watch(watch, dev)

        percpu counter: clean up percpu_counter_sum_and_set()

Before this patch we had the following:

percpu_counter_sum(): return the percpu_counter's value

percpu_counter_sum_and_set(): return the percpu_counter's value, copying
that value into the central value and zeroing the per-cpu counters before

After this patch, percpu_counter_sum_and_set() has gone, and
percpu_counter_sum() gets the old percpu_counter_sum_and_set()

Problem is, as Eric points out, the old percpu_counter_sum_and_set()
functionality was racy and wrong.  It zeroes out counters on "other" cpus,
without holding any locks which will prevent races agaist updates from
those other CPUS.

This patch reverts 1f7c14c62ce63805f9574664a6c6de3633d4a354.  This means
that percpu_counter_sum_and_set() still has the race, but
percpu_counter_sum() does not.

Note that this is not a simple revert - ext4 has since started using
percpu_counter_sum() for its dirty_blocks counter as well.

Note that this revert patch changes percpu_counter_sum() semantics.

Before the patch, a call to percpu_counter_sum() will bring the counter's
central counter mostly up-to-date, so a following percpu_counter_read()
will return a close value.

After this patch, a call to percpu_counter_sum() will leave the counter's
central accumulator unaltered, so a subsequent call to
percpu_counter_read() can now return a significantly inaccurate result.

If there is any code in the tree which was introduced after
e8ced39d5e8911c662d4d69a342b9d053eaaac4e was merged, and which depends
upon the new percpu_counter_sum() semantics, that code will break.

netpoll: fix race on poll_list resulting in garbage entry

A few months back a race was discused between the netpoll napi service
path, and the fast path through net_rx_action:

A patch was submitted for that bug, but I think we missed a case.

Consider the following scenario:

CPU0 has one napi_struct A on its poll_list
CPU1 is calling netpoll_send_skb and needs to call poll_napi on the same
napi_struct A that CPU0 has on its list

net_rx_action poll_napi
!list_empty (returns true) locks poll_lock for A
    (removes A from poll_list)

In the above scenario, net_rx_action assumes that the per-cpu poll_list is
exclusive to that cpu.  netpoll of course violates that, and because the netpoll
path can dequeue from the poll list, its possible for CPU0 to detect a non-empty
list at the top of the while loop in net_rx_action, but have it become empty by
the time it calls list_entry.  Since the poll_list isn't surrounded by any other
structure, the returned data from that list_entry call in this situation is
garbage, and any number of crashes can result based on what exactly that garbage

Given that its not fasible for performance reasons to place exclusive locks
arround each cpus poll list to provide that mutal exclusion, I think the best
solution is modify the netpoll path in such a way that we continue to guarantee
that the poll_list for a cpu is in fact exclusive to that cpu.  To do this I've
implemented the patch below.  It adds an additional bit to the state field in
the napi_struct.  When executing napi->poll from the netpoll_path, this bit will
be set. When a driver calls netif_rx_complete, if that bit is set, it will not
remove the napi_struct from the poll_list.  That work will be saved for the next
iteration of net_rx_action.

I've tested this and it seems to work well.  About the biggest drawback I can
see to it is the fact that it might result in an extra loop through
net_rx_action in the event that the device is actually contended for (i.e. the
netpoll path actually preforms all the needed work no the device, and the call
to net_rx_action winds up doing nothing, except removing the napi_struct from
the poll_list.  However I think this is probably a small price to pay, given
that the alternative is a crash.

14 years agotracehook: exec double-reporting fix
Roland McGrath [Wed, 10 Dec 2008 03:36:38 +0000 (19:36 -0800)]
tracehook: exec double-reporting fix

The patch 6341c39 "tracehook: exec" introduced a small regression in
2.6.27 regarding binfmt_misc exec event reporting.  Since the reporting
is now done in the common search_binary_handler() function, an exec
of a misc binary will result in two (or possibly multiple) exec events
being reported, instead of just a single one, because the misc handler
contains a recursive call to search_binary_handler.

To add to the confusion, if PTRACE_O_TRACEEXEC is not active, the multiple
SIGTRAP signals will in fact cause only a single ptrace intercept, as the
signals are not queued.  However, if PTRACE_O_TRACEEXEC is on, the debugger
will actually see multiple ptrace intercepts (PTRACE_EVENT_EXEC).

The test program included below demonstrates the problem.

This change fixes the bug by calling tracehook_report_exec() only in the
outermost search_binary_handler() call (bprm->recursion_depth == 0).

The additional change to restore bprm->recursion_depth after each binfmt
load_binary call is actually superfluous for this bug, since we test the
value saved on entry to search_binary_handler().  But it keeps the use of
of the depth count to its most obvious expected meaning.  Depending on what
binfmt handlers do in certain cases, there could have been false-positive
tests for recursion limits before this change.

    /* Test program using PTRACE_O_TRACEEXEC.
       This forks and exec's the first argument with the rest of the arguments,
       while ptrace'ing.  It expects to see one PTRACE_EVENT_EXEC stop and
       then a successful exit, with no other signals or events in between.

       Test for kernel doing two PTRACE_EVENT_EXEC stops for a binfmt_misc exec:

       $ gcc -g traceexec.c -o traceexec
       $ sudo sh -c 'echo :test:M::foobar::/bin/cat: > /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc/register'

ipv6: silence log messages for locally generated multicast

This patch fixes minor annoyance during transmission of unsolicited
neighbor advertisements from userspace to multicast addresses (as
far as I can see in RFC, this is allowed and the similar functionality
for IPv4 has been in arping for a long time).

Outgoing multicast packets get reinserted into local processing as if they
are received from the network. The machine thus sees its own NA and fills
the logs with error messages. This patch removes the message if NA has been
generated locally.
