blktrace: fix blk_probes_ref chaos

Impact: fix mixed ioctl and ftrace-plugin blktrace use refcount bugs

ioctl-based blktrace allocates bt and registers tracepoints when
ioctl(BLKTRACESETUP), and do all cleanups when ioctl(BLKTRACETEARDOWN).

while ftrace-based blktrace allocates/frees bt when:
  # echo 1/0 > /sys/block/sda/sda1/trace/enable

and registers/unregisters tracepoints when:
  # echo blk/nop > /debugfs/tracing/current_tracer
or
  # echo 1/0 > /debugfs/tracing/tracing_enable

The separatation of allocation and registeration causes 2 problems:

  1. current user-space blktrace still calls ioctl(TEARDOWN) when
     ioctl(SETUP) failed:
       # echo 1 > /sys/block/sda/sda1/trace/enable
       # blktrace /dev/sda
         BLKTRACESETUP: Device or resource busy
         ^C
     and now blk_probes_ref == -1

  2. Another way to make blk_probes_ref == -1:
     # plugin sdb && mount sdb1
     # echo 1 > /sys/block/sdb/sdb1/trace/enable
     # remove sdb

This patch does the allocation and registeration when writing
sdaX/trace/enable.

Steven Rostedt [Sat, 21 Mar 2009 06:44:50 +0000 (02:44 -0400)]
tracing: fix memory leak in trace_stat

If the function profiler does not have any items recorded and one were
to cat the function stat file, the kernel would take a BUG with a NULL
pointer dereference.

Looking further into this, I found that returning NULL from stat_start
did not stop the stat logic, and would later call stat_next. This breaks
from the way seq_file works, so I looked into fixing the stat code.

This is where I noticed that the last next_entry is never freed.
It is allocated, and if the stat_next returns NULL, the code breaks out
of the loop, unlocks the mutex and exits. We never link the next_entry
nor do we free it. Thus it is a real memory leak.

This patch rearranges the code a bit to not only fix the memory leak,
but also to act more like seq_file where nothing is printed if there
is nothing to print. That is, stat_start returns NULL.

commit 40ada30f9621fbd831ac2437b9a2a399aa ("tracing: clean up menu"),
despite the "clean up" in its purpose, introduced a behavioural
change for Kconfig symbols: we no longer able to select tracing
support on PPC32 (because IRQFLAGS_SUPPORT isn't yet implemented).

The IRQFLAGS_SUPPORT is not mandatory for most tracers, tracing core
has a special case for platforms w/o irqflags (which, by the way, has
become useless as of the commit above).

Though according to Ingo Molnar, there was periodic build failures on
weird, unmaintained architectures that had no irqflags-tracing support
and hence didn't know the raw_irqs_save/restore primitives. Thus we'd
better not enable irqflags-less tracing for all architectures.

This patch restores the old behaviour for PPC32, and thus brings the
tracing back. Other architectures can either add themselves to the
exception list or (better) implement TRACE_IRQFLAGS_SUPPORT.

be written to to set filters; reading from it will display the current
set of filters set for that event.

Basically, any field listed in the 'format' file for an event can be
filtered on (including strings, but not yet other array types) using
either matching ('==') or non-matching ('!=') 'predicates'.  A
'predicate' can be either a single expression:

 # echo pid != 0 > filter

 # cat filter
 pid != 0

or a compound expression of up to 8 sub-expressions combined using '&&'
or '||':

 # echo comm == Xorg > filter
 # echo "&& sig != 29" > filter

 # cat filter
 comm == Xorg
 && sig != 29

Only events having field values matching an expression will be available
in the trace output; non-matching events are discarded.

Note that a compound expression is built up by echoing each
sub-expression separately - it's not the most efficient way to do
things, but it keeps the parser simple and assumes that compound
expressions will be relatively uncommon.  In any case, a subsequent
patch introducing a way to set filters for entire subsystems should
mitigate any need to do this for lots of events.

Setting a filter without an '&&' or '||' clears the previous filter
completely and sets the filter to the new expression:

 # cat filter
 comm == Xorg
 && sig != 29

 # echo comm != Xorg

 # cat filter
 comm != Xorg

To clear a filter, echo 0 to the filter file:

 # echo 0 > filter
 # cat filter
 none

The limit of 8 predicates for a compound expression is arbitrary - for
efficiency, it's implemented as an array of pointers to predicates, and
8 seemed more than enough for any filter...

| Text Edit Lock - kprobes architecture independent support") from the

Move this lock to kernel/extable.c (which is already home to various

aio: lookup_ioctx can return the wrong value when looking up a bogus context

bogus io context was returning the 1 valid io context from the list
(harness/cases/3.p).

Because of that, an extra put_iocontext was done, and when the process
exited, it hit a BUG_ON in the put_iocontext macro called from exit_aio
(since we expect a users count of 1 and instead get 0).

The problem was introduced by "aio: make the lookup_ioctx() lockless"
(commit abf137dd7712132ee56d5b3143c2ff61a72a5faa).

Thanks to Zach for pointing out that hlist_for_each_entry_rcu will not

tracing/ring-buffer: fix non cpu hotplug case

Impact: fix warning with irqsoff tracer

The ring buffer allocates its buffers on pre-smp time (early_initcall).
It means that, at first, only the boot cpu buffer is allocated and
the ring-buffer cpumask only has the boot cpu set (cpu_online_mask).

Later, the secondary cpu will show up and the ring-buffer will be notified
about this event: the appropriate buffer will be allocated and the cpumask
will be updated.

Unfortunately, if !CONFIG_CPU_HOTPLUG, the ring-buffer will not be
notified about the secondary cpus, meaning that the cpumask will have
only the cpu boot set, and only one cpu buffer allocated.

We fix that by using cpu_possible_mask if !CONFIG_CPU_HOTPLUG.
