2011-05-02slub: fix panic with DISCONTIGMEMJames Bottomley
commit 4a5fa3590f09999f6db41bc386bce40848fa9f63 upstream. Slub makes assumptions about page_to_nid() which are violated by DISCONTIGMEM and !NUMA. This violation results in a panic because page_to_nid() can be non-zero for pages in the discontiguous ranges and this leads to a null return by get_node(). The assertion by the maintainer is that DISCONTIGMEM should only be allowed when NUMA is also defined. However, at least six architectures: alpha, ia64, m32r, m68k, mips, parisc violate this. The panic is a regression against slab, so just mark slub broken in the problem configuration to prevent users reporting these panics.

2011-03-16trace-clock/test-tsc-syncMathieu Desnoyers
LTTng - TSC synchronicity test Test TSC synchronization across CPUs. Architecture independant and can therefore be used on various architectures. Aims at testing the TSC synchronization on a running system (not only at early boot), with minimal impact on interrupt latency. I've written this code before x86 tsc_sync.c existed and given it worked well for my needs, I never switched to tsc_sync.c. Although it has the same goal, it does it a bit differently : tsc_sync looks at the cycle counters on two CPUs to see if one compared to the other are going backward when read in loop. The LTTng code synchronizes both cores with a counter used as a memory barrier and then reads the two TSCs at a delta equal to the cache line exchange. Instruction and data caches are primed. This test is repeated in loops to insure we deal with MCE, NMIs which could skew the results. The problem I see with tsc_sync.c is that is one of the two CPUs is delayed by an interrupt handler (for way too long) while the other CPU is doing its check_tsc_warp() execution, and if the CPU with the lowest TSC values runs first, this code will fail to detect unsynchronized CPUs. This sync test code does not have this problem. A following patch replaces the x86 tsc_sync.c code by this architecture independant code. This code also adds the kernel parameter force_tsc_sync=1 which forces resynchronization of CPU TSCs when a CPU is hotplugged.

2011-03-16trace-clock/trace-clock-coreMathieu Desnoyers
Trace clock core 32 to 64 bits clock extension. Extracts 64 bits tsc from a [1..32] bits counter, kept up to date by periodical timer interrupt. Lockless. It's actually a specialized version of cnt_32_to_63.h which does the following in addition : - Uses per-cpu data to keep track of counters. - It limits cache-line bouncing - I supports machines with non-synchronized TSCs. - Does not require read barriers, which can be slow on some architectures. - Supports a full 64-bits counter (well, just one bit more than 63 is not really a big deal when we talk about timestamp counters). If 2^64 is considered long enough between overflows, 2^63 is normally considered long enough too. - The periodical update of the value is insured by the infrastructure. There is no assumption that the counter is read frequently, because we cannot assume that given the events for which tracing is enabled can be dynamically selected. - Supports counters of various width (32-bits and below) by changing the HW_BITS define. What cnt_32_to_63.h does that this patch doesn't do : - It has a global counter, which removes the need to do an update periodically on _each_ cpu. This can be important in a dynamic tick system where CPUs need to sleep to save power. It is therefore well suited for systems reading a global clock expected to be _exactly_ synchronized across cores (where time can never ever go backward). Q: > do you actually use the RCU internals? or do you just reimplement an RCU > algorithm? > A: Nope, I don't use RCU internals in this code. Preempt disable seemed like the best way to handle this utterly short code path and I wanted the write side to be fast enough to be called periodically. What I do is: - Disable preemption at the read-side : it makes sure the pointer I get will point to a data structure that will never change while I am in the preempt disabled code. (see *) - I use per-cpu data to allow the read-side to be as fast as possible (only need to disable preemption, does not race against other CPUs and won't generate cache line bouncing). It also allows dealing with unsynchronized TSCs if needed. - Periodical write side : it's called from an IPI running on each CPU. (*) We expect the read-side (preempt off region) to last shorter than the interval between IPI updates so we can guarantee the data structure it uses won't be modified underneath it. Since the IPI update is launched each seconds or so (depends on the frequency of the counter we are trying to extend), it's more than ok. Changelog: - Support [1..32] bits -> 64 bits. I volountarily limit the code to use at most 32 bits of the hardware clock for performance considerations. If this is a problem it could be changed. Also, the algorithm is aimed at a 32 bits architecture. The code becomes muuuch simpler on a 64 bits arch, since we can do the updates atomically.

get_cycles() : kconfig HAVE_GET_CYCLES Create a new "HAVE_GET_CYCLES" architecture option to specify which architectures provide 64-bits TSC counters readable with get_cycles(). It's principally useful to only enable high-precision tracing code only on such architectures and don't even bother building it on architectures which lack such support. It also requires architectures to provide get_cycles_barrier() and get_cycles_rate(). I mainly use it for the "priority-sifting rwlock" latency tracing code, which traces worse-case latency induced by the locking. It also provides the basic changes needed for the LTTng timestamping infrastructure.

2011-01-20kconfig: rename CONFIG_EMBEDDED to CONFIG_EXPERTDavid Rientjes
The meaning of CONFIG_EMBEDDED has long since been obsoleted; the option is used to configure any non-standard kernel with a much larger scope than only small devices. This patch renames the option to CONFIG_EXPERT in init/Kconfig and fixes references to the option throughout the kernel. A new CONFIG_EMBEDDED option is added that automatically selects CONFIG_EXPERT when enabled and can be used in the future to isolate options that should only be considered for embedded systems (RISC architectures, SLOB, etc). Calling the option "EXPERT" more accurately represents its intention: only expert users who understand the impact of the configuration changes they are making should enable it.

2011-01-20lockdep: Move early boot local IRQ enable/disable status to init/main.cTejun Heo
During early boot, local IRQ is disabled until IRQ subsystem is properly initialized. During this time, no one should enable local IRQ and some operations which usually are not allowed with IRQ disabled, e.g. operations which might sleep or require communications with other processors, are allowed. lockdep tracked this with early_boot_irqs_off/on() callbacks. As other subsystems need this information too, move it to init/main.c and make it generally available. While at it, toggle the boolean to early_boot_irqs_disabled instead of enabled so that it can be initialized with %false and %true indicates the exceptional condition.

2011-01-14rcu: demote SRCU_SYNCHRONIZE_DELAY from kernel-parameter statusPaul E. McKenney
Because the adaptive synchronize_srcu_expedited() approach has worked very well in testing, remove the kernel parameter and replace it by a C-preprocessor macro. If someone finds problems with this approach, a more complex and aggressively adaptive approach might be required. Longer term, SRCU will be merged with the other RCU implementations, at which point synchronize_srcu_expedited() will be event driven, just as synchronize_sched_expedited() currently is. At that point, there will be no need for this adaptive approach. Reported-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Paul E. McKenney <paulmck@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

2011-01-13decompressors: add boot-time XZ supportLasse Collin
This implements the API defined in <linux/decompress/generic.h> which is used for kernel, initramfs, and initrd decompression. This patch together with the first patch is enough for XZ-compressed initramfs and initrd; XZ-compressed kernel will need arch-specific changes. The buffering requirements described in decompress_unxz.c are stricter than with gzip, so the relevant changes should be done to the arch-specific code when adding support for XZ-compressed kernel. Similarly, the heap size in arch-specific pre-boot code may need to be increased (30 KiB is enough). The XZ decompressor needs memmove(), memeq() (memcmp() == 0), and memzero() (memset(ptr, 0, size)), which aren't available in all arch-specific pre-boot environments. I'm including simple versions in decompress_unxz.c, but a cleaner solution would naturally be nicer. Signed-off-by: Lasse Collin <lasse.collin@tukaani.org> Cc: "H.

2010-12-24init: don't call flush_scheduled_work() from do_initcalls()Tejun Heo
The call to flush_scheduled_work() in do_initcalls() is there to make sure all works queued to system_wq by initcalls finish before the init sections are dropped. However, the call doesn't make much sense at this point - there already are multiple different workqueues and different subsystems are free to create and use their own. Ordering requirements are and should be expressed explicitly. Drop the call to prepare for the deprecation and removal of flush_scheduled_work(). Andrew suggested adding sanity check where the workqueue code checks whether any pending or running work has the work function in the init text section. However, checking this for running works requires the worker to keep track of the current function being executed, and checking only the pending works will miss most cases. As a violation will almost always be caught by the usual page fault mechanism, I don't think it would be worthwhile to make the workqueue code track extra state just for this.

2010-11-30sched: Add 'autogroup' scheduling feature: automated per session task groupsMike Galbraith
A recurring complaint from CFS users is that parallel kbuild has a negative impact on desktop interactivity. This patch implements an idea from Linus, to automatically create task groups. Currently, only per session autogroups are implemented, but the patch leaves the way open for enhancement. Implementation: each task's signal struct contains an inherited pointer to a refcounted autogroup struct containing a task group pointer, the default for all tasks pointing to the init_task_group. When a task calls setsid(), a new task group is created, the process is moved into the new task group, and a reference to the preveious task group is dropped. Child processes inherit this task group thereafter, and increase it's refcount. When the last thread of a process exits, the process's reference is dropped, such that when the last process referencing an autogroup exits, the autogroup is destroyed. At runqueue selection time, IFF a task has no cgroup assignment, its current autogroup is used. Autogroup bandwidth is controllable via setting it's nice level through the proc filesystem: cat /proc/<pid>/autogroup Displays the task's group and the group's nice level. echo <nice level> > /proc/<pid>/autogroup Sets the task group's shares to the weight of nice <level> task. Setting nice level is rate limited for !admin users due to the abuse risk of task group locking. The feature is enabled from boot by default if CONFIG_SCHED_AUTOGROUP=y is selected, but can be disabled via the boot option noautogroup, and can also be turned on/off on the fly via: echo [01] > /proc/sys/kernel/sched_autogroup_enabled ... which will automatically move tasks to/from the root task group.

2010-11-29rcu: Make synchronize_srcu_expedited() fast if running readersPaul E. McKenney
The synchronize_srcu_expedited() function is currently quick if there are no active readers, but will delay a full jiffy if there are any. If these readers leave their SRCU read-side critical sections quickly, this is way too long to wait. So this commit first waits ten microseconds, and only then falls back to jiffy-at-a-time waiting.

Add priority boosting, but only for TINY_PREEMPT_RCU. This is enabled by the default-off RCU_BOOST kernel parameter. The priority to which to boost preempted RCU readers is controlled by the RCU_BOOST_PRIO kernel parameter (defaulting to real-time priority 1) and the time to wait before boosting the readers blocking a given grace period is controlled by the RCU_BOOST_DELAY kernel parameter (defaulting to 500 milliseconds).

2010-11-26perf, arch: Cleanup perf-pmu init vs lockup-detectorPeter Zijlstra
The perf hardware pmu got initialized at various points in the boot, some before early_initcall() some after (notably arch_initcall). The problem is that the NMI lockup detector is ran from early_initcall() and expects the hardware pmu to be present. Sanitize this by moving all architecture hardware pmu implementations to initialize at early_initcall() and move the lockup detector to an explicit initcall right after that.

2010-11-25cgroups: make swap accounting default behavior configurableMichal Hocko
Swap accounting can be configured by CONFIG_CGROUP_MEM_RES_CTLR_SWAP configuration option and then it is turned on by default. There is a boot option (noswapaccount) which can disable this feature. This makes it hard for distributors to enable the configuration option as this feature leads to a bigger memory consumption and this is a no-go for general purpose distribution kernel. On the other hand swap accounting may be very usuful for some workloads. This patch adds a new configuration option which controls the default behavior (CGROUP_MEM_RES_CTLR_SWAP_ENABLED). If the option is selected then the feature is turned on by default. It also adds a new boot parameter swapaccount[=1|0] which enhances the original noswapaccount parameter semantic by means of enable/disable logic (defaults to 1 if no value is provided to be still consistent with noswapaccount). The default behavior is unchanged (if CONFIG_CGROUP_MEM_RES_CTLR_SWAP is enabled then CONFIG_CGROUP_MEM_RES_CTLR_SWAP_ENABLED is enabled as well) Signed-off-by: Michal Hocko <mhocko@suse.cz> Acked-by: Daisuke Nishimura <nishimura@mxp.nes.nec.co.jp> Cc: Balbir Singh <balbir@linux.vnet.ibm.com> Cc: KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki <kamezawa.hiroyu@jp.fujitsu.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
