[PATCH] VFS: Ensure LOOKUP_CONTINUE flag is preserved by link_path_walk()

When walking a path, the LOOKUP_CONTINUE flag is used by some filesystems

the last component of the path.  It this is the case, it may have to look
at the intent information in order to perform various tasks such as atomic
open.

A problem currently occurs when link_path_walk() hits a symlink.  In this
case LOOKUP_CONTINUE may be cleared prematurely when we hit the end of the
path passed by __vfs_follow_link() (i.e.  the end of the symlink path)
rather than when we hit the end of the path passed by the user.

The solution is to have link_path_walk() clear LOOKUP_CONTINUE if and only
if that flag was unset when we entered the function.

Ravikiran G Thirumalai [Sun, 5 Feb 2006 07:27:59 +0000 (23:27 -0800)]
[PATCH] NUMA slab locking fixes: fix cpu down and up locking

This fixes locking and bugs in cpu_down and cpu_up paths of the NUMA slab
allocator.  Sonny Rao <sonny@burdell.org> reported problems sometime back on
POWER5 boxes, when the last cpu on the nodes were being offlined.  We could
not reproduce the same on x86_64 because the cpumask (node_to_cpumask) was not
being updated on cpu down.  Since that issue is now fixed, we can reproduce
Sonny's problems on x86_64 NUMA, and here is the fix.

The problem earlier was on CPU_DOWN, if it was the last cpu on the node to go
down, the array_caches (shared, alien) and the kmem_list3 of the node were
being freed (kfree) with the kmem_list3 lock held.  If the l3 or the
array_caches were to come from the same cache being cleared, we hit on
badness.

This patch cleans up the locking in cpu_up and cpu_down path.  We cannot
really free l3 on cpu down because, there is no node offlining yet and even
though a cpu is not yet up, node local memory can be allocated for it.  So l3s
are usually allocated at keme_cache_create and destroyed at
kmem_cache_destroy.  Hence, we don't need cachep->spinlock protection to get
to the cachep->nodelist[nodeid] either.

Patch survived onlining and offlining on a 4 core 2 node Tyan box with a 4
dbench process running all the time.

Earlier, we had to disable on chip interrupts while taking the

cache, we incremented colour_next which was protected by the cachep->spinlock,
and cache_grow could occur at interrupt context.  Since, now we protect the
per-node colour_next with the node's list_lock, we do not need to disable on
chip interrupts while taking the per-cache spinlock, but we just need to
disable interrupts when taking the per-node kmem_list3 list_lock.

[PATCH] NUMA slab locking fixes: move color_next to l3

colour_next is used as an index to add a colouring offset to a new slab in the
cache (colour_off * colour_next).  Now with the NUMA aware slab allocator, it
makes sense to colour slabs added on the same node sequentially with
colour_next.

This patch moves the colouring index "colour_next" per-node by placing it on
kmem_list3 rather than kmem_cache.

This also helps simplify locking for CPU up and down paths.

Andrew Morton [Sun, 5 Feb 2006 07:27:54 +0000 (23:27 -0800)]
[PATCH] jbd: fix transaction batching

Ben points out that:

  When writing files out using O_SYNC, jbd's 1 jiffy delay results in a
  significant drop in throughput as the disk sits idle.  The patch below
  results in a 4-5x performance improvement (from 6.5MB/s to ~24-30MB/s on my
  IDE test box) when writing out files using O_SYNC.

So optimise the batching code by omitting it entirely if the process which is
doing a sync write is the same as the one which did the most recent sync
write.  If that's true, we're unlikely to get any other processes joining the
transaction.

(Has been in -mm for ages - it took me a long time to get on to performance
testing it)

Numbers, on write-cache-disabled IDE:

/usr/bin/time -p synctest -n 10 -uf -t 1 -p 1 dir-name

Unpatched:
40 seconds
Patched:
35 seconds
Batching disabled:
35 seconds

This is the problematic single-process-doing-fsync case.  With multiple
fsyncing processes the numbers are AFACIT unaltered by the patch.

Aside: performance testing and instrumentation shows that the transaction
batching almost doesn't help (testing with synctest -n 1 -uf -t 100 -p 10
dir-name on non-writeback-caching IDE).  This is because by the time one
process is running a synchronous commit, a bunch of other processes already
have a transaction handle open, so they're all going to batch into the same
transaction anyway.

The batching seems to offer maybe 5-10% speedup with this workload, but I'm
pretty sure it was more important than that when it was first developed 4-odd
years ago...

[NETFILTER]: ULOG/nfnetlink_log: Use better default value for 'nlbufsiz'

Performance tests showed that ULOG may fail on heavy loaded systems
because of failed order-N allocations (N >= 1).

The default value of 4096 is not optimal in the sense that it actually
allocates _two_ contigous physical pages.  Reasoning: ULOG uses
alloc_skb(), which adds another ~300 bytes for skb_shared_info.

This patch sets the default value to NLMSG_GOODSIZE and adds some
documentation at the top.

[PATCH] x86_64: When allocation of merged SG lists fails in the IOMMU don't merge

[ AK: I redid Kevin's fix to be simpler, but the idea and original
  analysis of the problem is from Kevin]

This avoid allocation failures on some SATA systems like Nvidia CK8
when the IOMMU gets fragmented. Modern SATA devices have quite large queues
(128 entries) and the FS with ext2/3 is good enough now that it often
passes whole 128 page sg lists down to the driver. These require
512K of continuous free space in the IOMMU aperture to map when merged.
When the IOMMU is fragmented this could lead to spurious IO errors
due to failing mappings.

Short term fix is to just try to map the SG list again unmerged
page by page - this way fragmentation doesn't matter anymore.
The code for that was already there, but it just wasn't enabled for the
merge case.

According to Kevin at least the Nvidia device doesn't seem to benefit
from merging much anyways, so the only slowdown is from trying
to do an unnecessary merge attempt.

Kevin plans to implement better fragmentation avoidance in the future,
but that wouldn't be 2.6.16 material.

TBD: should add some statistic counters to count how often that really
happens.
