2010-10-18irq_work: Add generic hardirq context callbacksPeter Zijlstra
Provide a mechanism that allows running code in IRQ context. It is most useful for NMI code that needs to interact with the rest of the system -- like wakeup a task to drain buffers. Perf currently has such a mechanism, so extract that and provide it as a generic feature, independent of perf so that others may also benefit. The IRQ context callback is generated through self-IPIs where possible, or on architectures like powerpc the decrementer (the built-in timer facility) is set to generate an interrupt immediately. Architectures that don't have anything like this get to do with a callback from the timer tick. These architectures can call irq_work_run() at the tail of any IRQ handlers that might enqueue such work (like the perf IRQ handler) to avoid undue latencies in processing the work.

2010-05-17[S390] debug: enable exception-trace debug facilityHeiko Carstens
The exception-trace facility on x86 and other architectures prints traces to dmesg whenever a user space application crashes. s390 has such a feature since ages however it is called userprocess_debug and is enabled differently. This patch makes sure that whenever one of the two procfs files /proc/sys/kernel/userprocess_debug /proc/sys/debug/exception-trace is modified the contents of the second one changes as well. That way we keep backwards compatibilty but also support the same interface like other architectures do. Besides that the output of the traces is improved since it will now also contain the corresponding filename of the vma (when available) where the process caused a fault or trap.

2009-11-13locking: Make inlining decision Kconfig basedThomas Gleixner
commit 892a7c67 (locking: Allow arch-inlined spinlocks) implements the selection of which lock functions are inlined based on defines in arch/.../spinlock.h: #define __always_inline__LOCK_FUNCTION Despite of the name __always_inline__* the lock functions can be built out of line depending on config options. Also if the arch does not set some inline defines the generic code might set them; again depending on config options. This makes it unnecessary hard to figure out when and which lock functions are inlined. Aside of that it makes it way harder and messier for -rt to manipulate the lock functions. Convert the inlining decision to CONFIG switches. Each lock function is inlined depending on CONFIG_INLINE_*. The configs implement the existing dependencies. The architecture code can select ARCH_INLINE_* to signal that it wants the corresponding lock function inlined. ARCH_INLINE_* is necessary as Kconfig ignores "depends on" restrictions when a config element is selected. No functional change.

2009-09-21perf: Do the big rename: Performance Counters -> Performance EventsIngo Molnar
Bye-bye Performance Counters, welcome Performance Events! In the past few months the perfcounters subsystem has grown out its initial role of counting hardware events, and has become (and is becoming) a much broader generic event enumeration, reporting, logging, monitoring, analysis facility. Naming its core object 'perf_counter' and naming the subsystem 'perfcounters' has become more and more of a misnomer. With pending code like hw-breakpoints support the 'counter' name is less and less appropriate. All in one, we've decided to rename the subsystem to 'performance events' and to propagate this rename through all fields, variables and API names. (in an ABI compatible fashion) The word 'event' is also a bit shorter than 'counter' - which makes it slightly more convenient to write/handle as well. Thanks goes to Stephane Eranian who first observed this misnomer and suggested a rename. User-space tooling and ABI compatibility is not affected - this patch should be function-invariant. (Also, defconfigs were not touched to keep the size down.) This patch has been generated via the following script: FILES=$(find * -type f | grep -vE 'oprofile|[^K]config') sed -i \ -e 's/PERF_EVENT_/PERF_RECORD_/g' \ -e 's/PERF_COUNTER/PERF_EVENT/g' \ -e 's/perf_counter/perf_event/g' \ -e 's/nb_counters/nb_events/g' \ -e 's/swcounter/swevent/g' \ -e 's/tpcounter_event/tp_event/g' \ $FILES for N in $(find . -name perf_counter.[ch]); do M=$(echo $N | sed 's/perf_counter/perf_event/g') mv $N $M done FILES=$(find . -name perf_event.*) sed -i \ -e 's/COUNTER_MASK/REG_MASK/g' \ -e 's/COUNTER/EVENT/g' \ -e 's/\<event\>/event_id/g' \ -e 's/counter/event/g' \ -e 's/Counter/Event/g' \ $FILES ... to keep it as correct as possible. This script can also be used by anyone who has pending perfcounters patches - it converts a Linux kernel tree over to the new naming. We tried to time this change to the point in time where the amount of pending patches is the smallest: the end of the merge window. Namespace clashes were fixed up in a preparatory patch - and some stylistic fallout will be fixed up in a subsequent patch. ( NOTE: 'counters' are still the proper terminology when we deal with hardware registers - and these sed scripts are a bit over-eager in renaming them. I've undone some of that, but in case there's something left where 'counter' would be better than 'event' we can undo that on an individual basis instead of touching an otherwise nicely automated patch. ) Suggested-by: Stephane Eranian <eranian@google.com> Acked-by: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Acked-by: Paul Mackerras <paulus@samba.org> Reviewed-by: Arjan van de Ven <arjan@linux.intel.com> Cc: Mike Galbraith <efault@gmx.de> Cc: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com> Cc: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@gmail.com> Cc: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org> Cc: Benjamin Herrenschmidt <benh@kernel.crashing.org> Cc: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com> Cc: Kyle McMartin <kyle@mcmartin.ca> Cc: Martin Schwidefsky <schwidefsky@de.ibm.com> Cc: "David S.

2009-04-09mutex: have non-spinning mutexes on s390 by defaultHeiko Carstens
Impact: performance regression fix for s390 The adaptive spinning mutexes will not always do what one would expect on virtualized architectures like s390. Especially the cpu_relax() loop in mutex_spin_on_owner might hurt if the mutex holding cpu has been scheduled away by the hypervisor. We would end up in a cpu_relax() loop when there is no chance that the state of the mutex changes until the target cpu has been scheduled again by the hypervisor. For that reason we should change the default behaviour to no-spin on s390. We do have an instruction which allows to yield the current cpu in favour of a different target cpu. Also we have an instruction which allows us to figure out if the target cpu is physically backed. However we need to do some performance tests until we can come up with a solution that will do the right thing on s390.

2008-12-25[S390] Remove config options.Martin Schwidefsky
On s390 we always want to run with precise cputime accounting. Remove the config options VIRT_TIMER and VIRT_CPU_ACCOUNTING. Signed-off-by: Martin Schwidefsky <schwidefsky@de.ibm.com>
2008-12-25[S390] Add processor type march=z10 and a processor type safety check.Martin Schwidefsky
This patch adds the code generation option for IBM System z10 and adds a check in head[31,64].S to prevents the execution of a kernel compiled for a new processor type on an old machine. Signed-off-by: Martin Schwidefsky <schwidefsky@de.ibm.com>

This implements just the basic function tracer (_mcount) backend for s390. The dynamic variant will come later. Signed-off-by: Heiko Carstens <heiko.carstens@de.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Martin Schwidefsky <schwidefsky@de.ibm.com>
2008-12-25[S390] qdio: rework debug feature loggingJan Glauber
- make qdio_trace a per device view - remove s390dbf exceptions - remove CONFIG_QDIO_DEBUG, not needed anymore if we check for the level before calling sprintf - use snprintf for dbf entries - add start markers to see if the dbf view wrapped - add a global error view for all queues Signed-off-by: Jan Glauber <jang@linux.vnet.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Martin Schwidefsky <schwidefsky@de.ibm.com>
