Thomas Gleixner [Tue, 2 Sep 2008 22:54:47 +0000 (00:54 +0200)]
[x86] Fix TSC calibration issues

Larry Finger reported at http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/9/1/90:
An ancient laptop of mine started throwing errors from b43legacy when
I started using 2.6.27 on it. This has been bisected to commit bfc0f59
"x86: merge tsc calibration".

The unification of the TSC code adopted mostly the 64bit code, which
prefers PMTIMER/HPET over the PIT calibration.

Larrys system has an AMD K6 CPU. Such systems are known to have
PMTIMER incarnations which run at double speed. This results in a
miscalibration of the TSC by factor 0.5. So the resulting calibrated
CPU/TSC speed is half of the real CPU speed, which means that the TSC
based delay loop will run half the time it should run. That might
explain why the b43legacy driver went berserk.

On the other hand we know about systems, where the PIT based
calibration results in random crap due to heavy SMI/SMM
disturbance. On those systems the PMTIMER/HPET based calibration logic
with SMI detection shows better results.

According to Alok also virtualized systems suffer from the PIT
calibration method.

The solution is to use a more wreckage aware aproach than the current
either/or decision.

1) reimplement the retry loop which was dropped from the 32bit code
during the merge. It repeats the calibration and selects the lowest
frequency value as this is probably the closest estimate to the real

2) Monitor the delta of the TSC values in the delay loop which waits
for the PIT counter to reach zero. If the maximum value is
significantly different from the minimum, then we have a pretty safe
indicator that the loop was disturbed by an SMI.

3) keep the pmtimer/hpet reference as a backup solution for systems
where the SMI disturbance is a permanent point of failure for PIT
based calibration

4) do the loop iteration for both methods, record the lowest value and
decide after all iterations finished.

5) Set a clear preference to PIT based calibration when the result
makes sense.

The implementation does the reference calibration based on
HPET/PMTIMER around the delay, which is necessary for the PIT anyway,
but keeps separate TSC values to ensure the "independency" of the
resulting calibration values.

Tested on various 32bit/64bit machines including Geode 266Mhz, AMD K6
(affected machine with a double speed pmtimer which I grabbed out of
the dump), Pentium class machines and AMD/Intel 64 bit boxen.

ibft: fix target info parsing in ibft module

I got this patch through Red Hat's bugzilla from the bug submitter and
patch creator.  I have just fixed it up so it applies without fuzz to
upstream kernels.

Original patch and description from Shyam kumar Iyer:

The issue [ibft module not displaying targets with short names] is because
of an offset calculatation error in the iscsi_ibft.c code.  Due to this
error directory structure for the target in /sys/firmware/ibft does not
get created and so the initiator is unable to connect to the target.

Note that this bug surfaced only with an name that had a short section at
the end.  eg: "iqn.1984-05.com.dell:dell".  It did not surface when the
iqn's had a longer section at the end.  eg:

So, the eot_offset was calculated such that an extra 48 bytes i.e.  the
size of the ibft_header which has already been accounted was subtracted

This was not evident with longer iqn names because they would overshoot
the total ibft length more than 48 bytes and thus would escape the bug.

15 years agomm: size of quicklists shouldn't be proportional to the number of CPUs

Quicklists store pages for each CPU as caches.  (Each CPU can cache
node_free_pages/16 pages)

It is used for page table cache.  exit() will increase the cache size,
while fork() consumes it.

So for example if an apache-style application runs (one parent and many
child model), one CPU process will fork() while another CPU will process
the middleware work and exit().

At that time, the CPU on which the parent runs doesn't have page table
cache at all.  Others (on which children runs) have maximum caches.

QList_max = (#ofCPUs - 1) x Free / 16
=> QList_max / (Free + QList_max) = (#ofCPUs - 1) / (16 + #ofCPUs - 1)

So, How much quicklist memory is used in the maximum case?

This is proposional to # of CPUs because the limit of per cpu quicklist
cache doesn't see the number of cpus.

Above calculation mean

Also move the changing of ->child_reaper from zap_pid_ns_processes() to

Yes, we have already killed all tasks in this namespace, and sys_wait4()

the subsequent forget_original_parent() will crash the kernel because it
will try to re-parent these tasks to the NULL reaper.

Even if there are no childs, it is not good that forget_original_parent()
uses reaper == NULL.

Change the code to set ->child_reaper = init_pid_ns.child_reaper instead.
We could use pid_ns->parent->child_reaper as well, I think this does not
really matter.  These EXIT_DEAD tasks are not visible to the new ->parent
after re-parenting, they will silently do release_task() eventually.

Note that we must change ->child_reaper, otherwise
forget_original_parent() will use reaper == father, and in that case we
will hit the (correct) BUG_ON(!list_empty(&father->children)).

noticed this before now.

The fix involves noting that this buffer shouldn't be DMA-coherent; it's
just used for normal DMA writes.  So replace it with standard kmalloc()
buffering and DMA mapping calls.

This is the quickie fix.  A better one would not rely on allocating large
bounce buffers.  (Note that dma_alloc_coherent could have failed too, but
that case was ignored...  kmalloc is a bit more likely to fail though.)

opened for the second time - the bug could only successfully be detected

check this bit even if the test for the bug fails.

David Brownell: "My own exposure to this is that the UART on DaVinci

periodically gone from working to unusable with the mainline 8250.c ...

mac80211: Fix debugfs union misuse and pointer corruption

debugfs union in struct ieee80211_sub_if_data is misused by including a
common default_key dentry as a union member. This ends occupying the same
memory area with the first dentry in other union members (structures;
usually drop_unencrypted). Consequently, debugfs operations on
default_key symlinks and drop_unencrypted entry are using the same
dentry pointer even though they are supposed to be separate ones. This
can lead to removing entries incorrectly or potentially leaving
something behind since one of the dentry pointers gets lost.

Fix this by moving the default_key dentry to a new struct
(common_debugfs) that contains dentries (more to be added in future)
that are shared by all vif types. The debugfs union must only be used
for vif type-specific entries to avoid this type of pointer corruption.

Fix problem with waiting while holding rcu read lock in md/bitmap.c

A recent patch to protect the rdev list with rcu locking leaves us
with a problem because we can sleep on memalloc while holding the
rcu lock.

The rcu lock is only needed while walking the linked list as
uninteresting devices (failed or spares) can be removed at any time.

So only take the rcu lock while actually walking the linked list.
Take a refcount on the rdev during the time when we drop the lock
and do the memalloc to start IO.
When we return to the locked code, all the interesting devices
on the list will not have moved, so we can simply use

15 years agoRemove invalidate_partition call from do_md_stop.
NeilBrown [Mon, 1 Sep 2008 02:32:52 +0000 (12:32 +1000)]
Remove invalidate_partition call from do_md_stop.

When stopping an md array, or just switching to read-only, we
currently call invalidate_partition while holding the mddev lock.
The main reason for this is probably to ensure all dirty buffers
are flushed (invalidate_partition calls fsync_bdev).

However if any dirty buffers are found, it will almost certainly cause
a deadlock as starting writeout will require an update to the
superblock, and performing that updates requires taking the mddev
lock - which is already held.

This deadlock can be demonstrated by running "reboot -f -n" with
a root filesystem on md/raid, and some dirty buffers in memory.

All other calls to stop an array should already happen after a flush.
The normal sequence is to stop using the array (e.g. umount) which
will cause __blkdev_put to call sync_blockdev.  Then open the
array and issue the STOP_ARRAY ioctl while the buffers are all still

So this invalidate_partition is normally a no-op, except for one case
where it will cause a deadlock.

So remove it.

This patch possibly addresses the regression recored in

though it isn't yet clear how it ever worked.
