2009-12-16HWPOISON: Add a madvise() injector for soft page offliningAndi Kleen
Process based injection is much easier to handle for test programs, who can first bring a page into a specific state and then test. So add a new MADV_SOFT_OFFLINE to soft offline a page, similar to the existing hard offline injector. Signed-off-by: Andi Kleen <ak@linux.intel.com>
2009-12-16HWPOISON: Use get_user_page_fast in hwpoison madviseAndi Kleen
The previous version didn't take the mmap_sem before calling gup(), which is racy. Use get_user_pages_fast() instead which doesn't need any locks. This is also faster of course, but then it doesn't really matter because this is just a testing path. Based on report from Nick Piggin.

2009-09-22ksm: the mm interface to ksmHugh Dickins
This patch presents the mm interface to a dummy version of ksm.c, for better scrutiny of that interface: the real ksm.c follows later. When CONFIG_KSM is not set, madvise(2) reject MADV_MERGEABLE and MADV_UNMERGEABLE with EINVAL, since that seems more helpful than pretending that they can be serviced. But when CONFIG_KSM=y, accept them even if KSM is not currently running, and even on areas which KSM will not touch (e.g. hugetlb or shared file or special driver mappings). Like other madvices, report ENOMEM despite success if any area in the range is unmapped, and use EAGAIN to report out of memory. Define vma flag VM_MERGEABLE to identify an area on which KSM may try merging pages: leave it to ksm_madvise() to decide whether to set it. Define mm flag MMF_VM_MERGEABLE to identify an mm which might contain VM_MERGEABLE areas, to minimize callouts when forking or exiting. Based upon earlier patches by Chris Wright and Izik Eidus.

2009-05-05Ignore madvise(MADV_WILLNEED) for hugetlbfs-backed regionsMel Gorman
madvise(MADV_WILLNEED) forces page cache readahead on a range of memory backed by a file. The assumption is made that the page required is order-0 and "normal" page cache. On hugetlbfs, this assumption is not true and order-0 pages are allocated and inserted into the hugetlbfs page cache. This leaks hugetlbfs page reservations and can cause BUGs to trigger related to corrupted page tables. This patch causes MADV_WILLNEED to be ignored for hugetlbfs-backed regions.

2007-05-21Detach sched.h from mm.hAlexey Dobriyan
First thing mm.h does is including sched.h solely for can_do_mlock() inline function which has "current" dereference inside. By dealing with can_do_mlock() mm.h can be detached from sched.h which is good. See below, why. This patch a) removes unconditional inclusion of sched.h from mm.h b) makes can_do_mlock() normal function in mm/mlock.c c) exports can_do_mlock() to not break compilation d) adds sched.h inclusions back to files that were getting it indirectly. e) adds less bloated headers to some files (asm/signal.h, jiffies.h) that were getting them indirectly Net result is: a) mm.h users would get less code to open, read, preprocess, parse, ... if they don't need sched.h b) sched.h stops being dependency for significant number of files: on x86_64 allmodconfig touching sched.h results in recompile of 4083 files, after patch it's only 3744 (-8.3%).

2007-03-29[PATCH] holepunch: fix mmap_sem i_mutex deadlockHugh Dickins
sys_madvise has down_write of mmap_sem, then madvise_remove calls vmtruncate_range which takes i_mutex and i_alloc_sem: no, we can easily devise deadlocks from that ordering. madvise_remove drop mmap_sem while calling vmtruncate_range: luckily, since madvise_remove doesn't split or merge vmas, it's easy to handle this case with a NULL prev, without restructuring sys_madvise. (Though sad to retake mmap_sem when it's unlikely to be needed, and certainly down_read is sufficient for MADV_REMOVE, unlike the other madvices.)

2006-02-14[PATCH] madvise MADV_DONTFORK/MADV_DOFORKMichael S. Tsirkin
Currently, copy-on-write may change the physical address of a page even if the user requested that the page is pinned in memory (either by mlock or by get_user_pages). This happens if the process forks meanwhile, and the parent writes to that page. As a result, the page is orphaned: in case of get_user_pages, the application will never see any data hardware DMA's into this page after the COW. In case of mlock'd memory, the parent is not getting the realtime/security benefits of mlock. In particular, this affects the Infiniband modules which do DMA from and into user pages all the time. This patch adds madvise options to control whether memory range is inherited across fork. Useful e.g. for when hardware is doing DMA from/into these pages. Could also be useful to an application wanting to speed up its forks by cutting large areas out of consideration. Signed-off-by: Michael S.

2006-01-06[PATCH] madvise(MADV_REMOVE): remove pages from tmpfs shm backing storeBadari Pulavarty
Here is the patch to implement madvise(MADV_REMOVE) - which frees up a given range of pages & its associated backing store. Current implementation supports only shmfs/tmpfs and other filesystems return -ENOSYS. "Some app allocates large tmpfs files, then when some task quits and some client disconnect, some memory can be released. However the only way to release tmpfs-swap is to MADV_REMOVE". - Andrea Arcangeli Databases want to use this feature to drop a section of their bufferpool (shared memory segments) - without writing back to disk/swap space. This feature is also useful for supporting hot-plug memory on UML. Concerns raised by Andrew Morton: - "We have no plan for holepunching! If we _do_ have such a plan (or might in the future) then what would the API look like? I think sys_holepunch(fd, start, len), so we should start out with that." - Using madvise is very weird, because people will ask "why do I need to mmap my file before I can stick a hole in it?" - None of the other madvise operations call into the filesystem in this manner. A broad question is: is this capability an MM operation or a filesytem operation? truncate, for example, is a filesystem operation which sometimes has MM side-effects. madvise is an mm operation and with this patch, it gains FS side-effects, only they're really, really significant ones." Comments: - Andrea suggested the fs operation too but then it's more efficient to have it as a mm operation with fs side effects, because they don't immediatly know fd and physical offset of the range. It's possible to fixup in userland and to use the fs operation but it's more expensive, the vmas are already in the kernel and we can use them. Short term plan & Future Direction: - We seem to need this interface only for shmfs/tmpfs files in the short term. We have to add hooks into the filesystem for correctness and completeness. This is what this patch does. - In the future, plan is to support both fs and mmap apis also. This also involves (other) filesystem specific functions to be implemented. - Current patch doesn't support VM_NONLINEAR - which can be addressed in the future.

2005-11-28mm: re-architect the VM_UNPAGED logicLinus Torvalds
This replaces the (in my opinion horrible) VM_UNMAPPED logic with very explicit support for a "remapped page range" aka VM_PFNMAP. It allows a VM area to contain an arbitrary range of page table entries that the VM never touches, and never considers to be normal pages. Any user of "remap_pfn_range()" automatically gets this new functionality, and doesn't even have to mark the pages reserved or indeed mark them any other way. It just works. As a side effect, doing mmap() on /dev/mem works for arbitrary ranges. Sparc update from David in the next commit. Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2005-11-22[PATCH] unpaged: VM_UNPAGEDHugh Dickins
Although we tend to associate VM_RESERVED with remap_pfn_range, quite a few drivers set VM_RESERVED on areas which are then populated by nopage. The PageReserved removal in 2.6.15-rc1 changed VM_RESERVED not to free pages in zap_pte_range, without changing those drivers not to set it: so their pages just leak away. Let's not change miscellaneous drivers now: introduce VM_UNPAGED at the core, to flag the special areas where the ptes may have no struct page, or if they have then it's not to be touched. Replace most instances of VM_RESERVED in core mm by VM_UNPAGED. Force it on in remap_pfn_range, and the sparc and sparc64 io_remap_pfn_range. Revert addition of VM_RESERVED to powerpc vdso, it's not needed there. Is it needed anywhere? It still governs the mm->reserved_vm statistic, and special vmas not to be merged, and areas not to be core dumped; but could probably be eliminated later (the drivers are probably specifying it because in 2.4 it kept swapout off the vma, but in 2.6 we work from the LRU, which these pages don't get on). Use the VM_SHM slot for VM_UNPAGED, and define VM_SHM to 0: it serves no purpose whatsoever, and should be removed from drivers when we clean up.

2005-10-29[PATCH] core remove PageReservedNick Piggin
Remove PageReserved() calls from core code by tightening VM_RESERVED handling in mm/ to cover PageReserved functionality. PageReserved special casing is removed from get_page and put_page. All setting and clearing of PageReserved is retained, and it is now flagged in the page_alloc checks to help ensure we don't introduce any refcount based freeing of Reserved pages. MAP_PRIVATE, PROT_WRITE of VM_RESERVED regions is tentatively being deprecated. We never completely handled it correctly anyway, and is be reintroduced in future if required (Hugh has a proof of concept). Once PageReserved() calls are removed from kernel/power/swsusp.c, and all arch/ and driver code, the Set and Clear calls, and the PG_reserved bit can be trivially removed. Last real user of PageReserved is swsusp, which uses PageReserved to determine whether a struct page points to valid memory or not. This still needs to be addressed (a generic page_is_ram() should work). A last caveat: the ZERO_PAGE is now refcounted and managed with rmap (and thus mapcounted and count towards shared rss). These writes to the struct page could cause excessive cacheline bouncing on big systems. There are a number of ways this could be addressed if it is an issue.

Better late than never, I've at last reviewed the madvise vma merging going into 2.6.13. Remove a pointless check and fix two little bugs - a simple test (with /proc/<pid>/maps hacked to show ReadHints) showed both mismerges in practice: though being madvise, neither was disastrous. 1. Correct placement of the success label in madvise_behavior: as in mprotect_fixup and mlock_fixup, it is necessary to update vm_flags when vma_merge succeeds (to handle the exceptional Case 8 noted in the comments above vma_merge itself). 2. Correct initial value of prev when starting part way into a vma: as in sys_mprotect and do_mlock, it needs to be set to vma in this case (vma_merge handles only that minimum of cases shown in its comments). 3. If find_vma_prev sets prev, then the vma it returns is prev->vm_next, so it's pointless to make that same assignment again in sys_madvise.
