2010-08-23x86, vmware: Remove deprecated VMI kernel supportAlok Kataria
With the recent innovations in CPU hardware acceleration technologies from Intel and AMD, VMware ran a few experiments to compare these techniques to guest paravirtualization technique on VMware's platform. These hardware assisted virtualization techniques have outperformed the performance benefits provided by VMI in most of the workloads. VMware expects that these hardware features will be ubiquitous in a couple of years, as a result, VMware has started a phased retirement of this feature from the hypervisor. Please note that VMI has always been an optimization and non-VMI kernels still work fine on VMware's platform. Latest versions of VMware's product which support VMI are, Workstation 7.0 and VSphere 4.0 on ESX side, future maintainence releases for these products will continue supporting VMI. For more details about VMI retirement take a look at this, http://blogs.vmware.com/guestosguide/2009/09/vmi-retirement.html This feature removal was scheduled for 2.6.37 back in September 2009.

2010-03-30include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking ↵Tejun Heo
implicit slab.h inclusion from percpu.h percpu.h is included by sched.h and module.h and thus ends up being included when building most .c files. percpu.h includes slab.h which in turn includes gfp.h making everything defined by the two files universally available and complicating inclusion dependencies. percpu.h -> slab.h dependency is about to be removed. Prepare for this change by updating users of gfp and slab facilities include those headers directly instead of assuming availability. As this conversion needs to touch large number of source files, the following script is used as the basis of conversion. http://userweb.kernel.org/~tj/misc/slabh-sweep.py The script does the followings. * Scan files for gfp and slab usages and update includes such that only the necessary includes are there. ie. if only gfp is used, gfp.h, if slab is used, slab.h. * When the script inserts a new include, it looks at the include blocks and try to put the new include such that its order conforms to its surrounding. It's put in the include block which contains core kernel includes, in the same order that the rest are ordered - alphabetical, Christmas tree, rev-Xmas-tree or at the end if there doesn't seem to be any matching order. * If the script can't find a place to put a new include (mostly because the file doesn't have fitting include block), it prints out an error message indicating which .h file needs to be added to the file. The conversion was done in the following steps. 1. The initial automatic conversion of all .c files updated slightly over 4000 files, deleting around 700 includes and adding ~480 gfp.h and ~3000 slab.h inclusions. The script emitted errors for ~400 files. 2. Each error was manually checked. Some didn't need the inclusion, some needed manual addition while adding it to implementation .h or embedding .c file was more appropriate for others. This step added inclusions to around 150 files. 3. The script was run again and the output was compared to the edits from #2 to make sure no file was left behind. 4. Several build tests were done and a couple of problems were fixed. e.g. lib/decompress_*.c used malloc/free() wrappers around slab APIs requiring slab.h to be added manually. 5. The script was run on all .h files but without automatically editing them as sprinkling gfp.h and slab.h inclusions around .h files could easily lead to inclusion dependency hell. Most gfp.h inclusion directives were ignored as stuff from gfp.h was usually wildly available and often used in preprocessor macros. Each slab.h inclusion directive was examined and added manually as necessary. 6. percpu.h was updated not to include slab.h. 7. Build test were done on the following configurations and failures were fixed. CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL was turned off for all tests (as my distributed build env didn't work with gcov compiles) and a few more options had to be turned off depending on archs to make things build (like ipr on powerpc/64 which failed due to missing writeq). * x86 and x86_64 UP and SMP allmodconfig and a custom test config. * powerpc and powerpc64 SMP allmodconfig * sparc and sparc64 SMP allmodconfig * ia64 SMP allmodconfig * s390 SMP allmodconfig * alpha SMP allmodconfig * um on x86_64 SMP allmodconfig 8. percpu.h modifications were reverted so that it could be applied as a separate patch and serve as bisection point. Given the fact that I had only a couple of failures from tests on step 6, I'm fairly confident about the coverage of this conversion patch. If there is a breakage, it's likely to be something in one of the arch headers which should be easily discoverable easily on most builds of the specific arch.

2009-02-09x86, vmi: put a missing paravirt_release_pmd in pgd_dtorAlok Kataria
Commit 6194ba6ff6ccf8d5c54c857600843c67aa82c407 ("x86: don't special-case pmd allocations as much") made changes to the way we handle pmd allocations, and while doing that it dropped a call to paravirt_release_pd on the pgd page from the pgd_dtor code path. As a result of this missing release, the hypervisor is now unaware of the pgd page being freed, and as a result it ends up tracking this page as a page table page. After this the guest may start using the same page for other purposes, and depending on what use the page is put to, it may result in various performance and/or functional issues ( hangs, reboots). Since this release is only required for VMI, I now release the pgd page from the (vmi)_pgd_free hook.

Impact: cleanup, remove dead debug code I ran across some old debugging code in vmi paravirt-ops code that was already dead, but still potentially useful. After reviewing recent changes to the way kernel page tables are allocated and initialized, and the lack of bugs caught by this debugging code, I've concluded it is now totally useless to have around, and it's already been #if 0'd for quite some time. There's no rush to get this in mainline, but it's also totally harmless, so I'll let the x86 maintainers decide where it should be tucked.

VMI initialiation can relocate the fixmap, causing early_ioremap to malfunction if it is initialized before the relocation.

2008-08-22x86, paravirt_ops: use unsigned long instead of u32 for alloc_p*() pfn argsEduardo Habkost
This patch changes the pfn args from 'u32' to 'unsigned long' on alloc_p*() functions on paravirt_ops, and the corresponding implementations for Xen and VMI. The prototypes for CONFIG_PARAVIRT=n are already using unsigned long, so paravirt.h now matches the prototypes on asm-x86/pgalloc.h. It shouldn't result in any changes on generated code on 32-bit, with or without CONFIG_PARAVIRT. On both cases, 'codiff -f' didn't show any change after applying this patch. On 64-bit, there are (expected) binary changes only when CONFIG_PARAVIRT is enabled, as the patch is really supposed to change the size of the pfn args.

This allows the vmi initialization to be done before max_low_pfn could be computed. We also move the vmi_init code very early in the boot process so that nobody accidentally breaks the fixmap dependancy.

2008-07-18x86: APIC: remove apic_write_around(); use alternativesMaciej W. Rozycki
Use alternatives to select the workaround for the 11AP Pentium erratum for the affected steppings on the fly rather than build time. Remove the X86_GOOD_APIC configuration option and replace all the calls to apic_write_around() with plain apic_write(), protecting accesses to the ESR as appropriate due to the 3AP Pentium erratum. Remove apic_read_around() and all its invocations altogether as not needed. Remove apic_write_atomic() and all its implementing backends. The use of ASM_OUTPUT2() is not strictly needed for input constraints, but I have used it for readability's sake. I had the feeling no one else was brave enough to do it, so I went ahead and here it is. Verified by checking the generated assembly and tested with both a 32-bit and a 64-bit configuration, also with the 11AP "feature" forced on and verified with gdb on /proc/kcore to work as expected (as an 11AP machines are quite hard to get hands on these days). Some script complained about the use of "volatile", but apic_write() needs it for the same reason and is effectively a replacement for writel(), so I have disregarded it. I am not sure what the policy wrt defconfig files is, they are generated and there is risk of a conflict resulting from an unrelated change, so I have left changes to them out. The option will get removed from them at the next run. Some testing with machines other than mine will be needed to avoid some stupid mistake, but despite its volume, the change is not really that intrusive, so I am fairly confident that because it works for me, it will everywhere.

Make KERNEL_PGD_PTRS common, as previously it was only being defined for 32-bit. There are a couple of follow-on changes from this: - KERNEL_PGD_PTRS was being defined in terms of USER_PGD_PTRS. The definition of USER_PGD_PTRS doesn't really make much sense on x86-64, since it can have two different user address-space configurations. I renamed USER_PGD_PTRS to KERNEL_PGD_BOUNDARY, which is meaningful for all of 32/32, 32/64 and 64/64 process configurations. - USER_PTRS_PER_PGD was also defined and was being used for similar purposes. Converting its users to KERNEL_PGD_BOUNDARY left it completely unused, and so I removed it.

2008-01-30x86: change write_gdt_entry signature.Glauber de Oliveira Costa
This patch changes the write_gdt_entry function signature. Instead of the old "a" and "b" parameters, it now receives a pointer to a desc_struct, and the size of the entry being handled. This is because x86_64 can have some 16-byte entries as well as 8-byte ones.

2008-01-30x86: rename the struct pt_regs members for 32/64-bit consistencyH. Peter Anvin
We have a lot of code which differs only by the naming of specific members of structures that contain registers. In order to enable additional unifications, this patch drops the e- or r- size prefix from the register names in struct pt_regs, and drops the x- prefixes for segment registers on the 32-bit side. This patch also performs the equivalent renames in some additional places that might be candidates for unification in the future. Signed-off-by: H.

2008-01-30x86: add set/clear_cpu_cap operationsJeremy Fitzhardinge
The patch to suppress bitops-related warnings added a pile of ugly casts. Many of these were related to the management of x86 CPU capabilities. Clean these up by adding specific set/clear_cpu_cap macros, and use them consistently.

2008-01-30x86: irqflags consolidationGlauber de Oliveira Costa
This patch consolidates the irqflags include files containing common paravirt definitions. The native definition for interrupt handling, halt, and such, are the same for 32 and 64 bit, and they are kept in irqflags.h. the differences are split in the arch-specific files. The syscall function, irq_enable_sysexit, has a very specific i386 naming, and its name is then changed to a more general one.

2007-10-16paravirt: clean up lazy mode handlingJeremy Fitzhardinge
Currently, the set_lazy_mode pv_op is overloaded with 5 functions: 1. enter lazy cpu mode 2. leave lazy cpu mode 3. enter lazy mmu mode 4. leave lazy mmu mode 5. flush pending batched operations This complicates each paravirt backend, since it needs to deal with all the possible state transitions, handling flushing, etc. In particular, flushing is quite distinct from the other 4 functions, and seems to just cause complication. This patch removes the set_lazy_mode operation, and adds "enter" and "leave" lazy mode operations on mmu_ops and cpu_ops. All the logic associated with enter and leaving lazy states is now in common code (basically BUG_ONs to make sure that no mode is current when entering a lazy mode, and make sure that the mode is current when leaving). Also, flush is handled in a common way, by simply leaving and re-entering the lazy mode. The result is that the Xen, lguest and VMI lazy mode implementations are much simpler.

2007-10-16paravirt: refactor struct paravirt_ops into smaller pv_*_opsJeremy Fitzhardinge
This patch refactors the paravirt_ops structure into groups of functionally related ops: pv_info - random info, rather than function entrypoints pv_init_ops - functions used at boot time (some for module_init too) pv_misc_ops - lazy mode, which didn't fit well anywhere else pv_time_ops - time-related functions pv_cpu_ops - various privileged instruction ops pv_irq_ops - operations for managing interrupt state pv_apic_ops - APIC operations pv_mmu_ops - operations for managing pagetables There are several motivations for this: 1. Some of these ops will be general to all x86, and some will be i386/x86-64 specific. This makes it easier to share common stuff while allowing separate implementations where needed. 2. At the moment we must export all of paravirt_ops, but modules only need selected parts of it. This allows us to export on a case by case basis (and also choose which export license we want to apply). 3. Functional groupings make things a bit more readable. Struct paravirt_ops is now only used as a template to generate patch-site identifiers, and to extract function pointers for inserting into jmp/calls when patching. It is only instantiated when needed.
