2010-09-09topology/sysfs: Provide book id and siblings attributesHeiko Carstens
Create attributes: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpuX/topology/book_id /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpuX/topology/book_siblings which show the book id and the book siblings of a cpu. Unlike the attributes for SMT and MC these attributes are only present if CONFIG_SCHED_BOOK is set. There is no reason to pollute sysfs for every architecture with unused attributes.

2009-10-30Documentation: ABI: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu#/ topology filesAlex Chiang
Add brief descriptions for the following sysfs files: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu#/topology/core_id /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu#/topology/core_siblings /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu#/topology/core_siblings_list /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu#/topology/physical_package_id /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu#/topology/thread_siblings /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu#/topology/thread_siblings_list The descriptions in Documentation/cputopology.txt weren't very informative, so I attempted a better description based on code reading and hopeful guessing. Updated Documentation/cputopology.txt with the better descriptions and fixed some style issues.

2009-01-11cpumask: Use topology_core_cpumask()/topology_thread_cpumask()Rusty Russell
Impact: reduce stack usage, use new cpumask API. This actually uses topology_core_cpumask() and topology_thread_cpumask(), removing the only users of topology_core_siblings() and topology_thread_siblings() Signed-off-by: Rusty Russell <rusty@rustcorp.com.au> Signed-off-by: Mike Travis <travis@sgi.com> Cc: linux-net-drivers@solarflare.com

2008-06-13cpu topology: always define CPU topology informationBen Hutchings
This can result in an empty topology directory in sysfs, and requires in-kernel users to protect all uses with #ifdef - see <http://marc.info/?l=linux-netdev&m=120639033904472&w=2>. The documentation of CPU topology specifies what the defaults should be if only partial information is available from the hardware. So we can provide these defaults as a fallback. This patch: - Adds default definitions of the 4 topology macros to <linux/topology.h> - Changes drivers/base/topology.c to use the topology macros unconditionally and to cope with definitions that aren't lvalues - Updates documentation accordingly [ From: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> - fold now-duplicated code - fix layout ] Signed-off-by: Ben Hutchings <bhutchings@solarflare.com> Cc: Vegard Nossum <vegard.nossum@gmail.com> Cc: Nick Piggin <nickpiggin@yahoo.com.au> Cc: Chandra Seetharaman <sekharan@us.ibm.com> Cc: Suresh Siddha <suresh.b.siddha@intel.com> Cc: Mike Travis <travis@sgi.com> Cc: Christoph Lameter <clameter@sgi.com> Cc: John Hawkes <hawkes@sgi.com> Cc: Zhang, Yanmin <yanmin.zhang@intel.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>

2006-02-03[PATCH] Export cpu topology in sysfsZhang, Yanmin
The patch implements cpu topology exportation by sysfs. Items (attributes) are similar to /proc/cpuinfo. 1) /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpuX/topology/physical_package_id: represent the physical package id of cpu X; 2) /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpuX/topology/core_id: represent the cpu core id to cpu X; 3) /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpuX/topology/thread_siblings: represent the thread siblings to cpu X in the same core; 4) /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpuX/topology/core_siblings: represent the thread siblings to cpu X in the same physical package; To implement it in an architecture-neutral way, a new source file, driver/base/topology.c, is to export the 5 attributes. If one architecture wants to support this feature, it just needs to implement 4 defines, typically in file include/asm-XXX/topology.h. The 4 defines are: #define topology_physical_package_id(cpu) #define topology_core_id(cpu) #define topology_thread_siblings(cpu) #define topology_core_siblings(cpu) The type of **_id is int. The type of siblings is cpumask_t. To be consistent on all architectures, the 4 attributes should have deafult values if their values are unavailable. Below is the rule. 1) physical_package_id: If cpu has no physical package id, -1 is the default value. 2) core_id: If cpu doesn't support multi-core, its core id is 0. 3) thread_siblings: Just include itself, if the cpu doesn't support HT/multi-thread. 4) core_siblings: Just include itself, if the cpu doesn't support multi-core and HT/Multi-thread. So be careful when declaring the 4 defines in include/asm-XXX/topology.h. If an attribute isn't defined on an architecture, it won't be exported. Thank Nathan, Greg, Andi, Paul and Venki. The patch provides defines for i386/x86_64/ia64.
