Fix docbook templates that reference files that do not contain the expected kernel-doc notation. Fixes these warnings: Warning(arch/x86/include/asm/unaligned.h): no structured comments found Warning(lib/vsprintf.c): no structured comments found These cause errors in the generated html output, like below, so drop these lines. Name arch/x86/include/asm/unaligned.h - Document generation inconsistency Oops Warning The template for this document tried to insert the structured comment from the file arch/x86/include/asm/unaligned.h at this point, but none was found.

2010-09-11docbook: warn on unused doc entriesJohannes Berg
When you don't use !E or !I but only !F, then it's very easy to miss including some functions, structs etc. in documentation. To help finding which ones were missed, allow printing out the unused ones as warnings. For example, using this on mac80211 yields a lot of warnings like this: Warning: didn't use docs for DOC: mac80211 workqueue Warning: didn't use docs for ieee80211_max_queues Warning: didn't use docs for ieee80211_bss_change Warning: didn't use docs for ieee80211_bss_conf when generating the documentation for it.

2010-09-11PM / Hibernate: Avoid hitting OOM during preallocation of memoryRafael J. Wysocki
There is a problem in hibernate_preallocate_memory() that it calls preallocate_image_memory() with an argument that may be greater than the total number of available non-highmem memory pages. If that's the case, the OOM condition is guaranteed to trigger, which in turn can cause significant slowdown to occur during hibernation. To avoid that, make preallocate_image_memory() adjust its argument before calling preallocate_image_pages(), so that the total number of saveable non-highem pages left is not less than the minimum size of a hibernation image. Change hibernate_preallocate_memory() to try to allocate from highmem if the number of pages allocated by preallocate_image_memory() is too low. Modify free_unnecessary_pages() to take all possible memory allocation patterns into account. Reported-by: KOSAKI Motohiro <kosaki.motohiro@jp.fujitsu.com> Signed-off-by: Rafael J.

2010-09-10xfs: log IO completion workqueue is a high priority queueDave Chinner
The workqueue implementation in 2.6.36-rcX has changed, resulting in the workqueues no longer having dedicated threads for work processing. This has caused severe livelocks under heavy parallel create workloads because the log IO completions have been getting held up behind metadata IO completions. Hence log commits would stall, memory allocation would stall because pages could not be cleaned, and lock contention on the AIL during inode IO completion processing was being seen to slow everything down even further. By making the log Io completion workqueue a high priority workqueue, they are queued ahead of all data/metadata IO completions and processed before the data/metadata completions. Hence the log never gets stalled, and operations needed to clean memory can continue as quickly as possible. This avoids the livelock conditions and allos the system to keep running under heavy load as per normal.

2010-09-10execve: make responsive to SIGKILL with large argumentsRoland McGrath
An execve with a very large total of argument/environment strings can take a really long time in the execve system call. It runs uninterruptibly to count and copy all the strings. This change makes it abort the exec quickly if sent a SIGKILL. Note that this is the conservative change, to interrupt only for SIGKILL, by using fatal_signal_pending(). It would be perfectly correct semantics to let any signal interrupt the string-copying in execve, i.e. use signal_pending() instead of fatal_signal_pending(). We'll save that change for later, since it could have user-visible consequences, such as having a timer set too quickly make it so that an execve can never complete, though it always happened to work before.

2010-09-10execve: improve interactivity with large argumentsRoland McGrath
This adds a preemption point during the copying of the argument and environment strings for execve, in copy_strings(). There is already a preemption point in the count() loop, so this doesn't add any new points in the abstract sense. When the total argument+environment strings are very large, the time spent copying them can be much more than a normal user time slice. So this change improves the interactivity of the rest of the system when one process is doing an execve with very large arguments.

2010-09-10setup_arg_pages: diagnose excessive argument sizeRoland McGrath
The CONFIG_STACK_GROWSDOWN variant of setup_arg_pages() does not check the size of the argument/environment area on the stack. When it is unworkably large, shift_arg_pages() hits its BUG_ON. This is exploitable with a very large RLIMIT_STACK limit, to create a crash pretty easily. Check that the initial stack is not too large to make it possible to map in any executable. We're not checking that the actual executable (or intepreter, for binfmt_elf) will fit. So those mappings might clobber part of the initial stack mapping. But that is just userland lossage that userland made happen, not a kernel problem.

Fix a bug in keyctl_session_to_parent() whereby it tries to check the ownership of the parent process's session keyring whether or not the parent has a session keyring [CVE-2010-2960]. This results in the following oops: BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 00000000000000a0 IP: [<ffffffff811ae4dd>] keyctl_session_to_parent+0x251/0x443 ...

2010-09-10block: Range check cpu in blk_cpu_to_groupBrian King
While testing CPU DLPAR, the following problem was discovered. We were DLPAR removing the first CPU, which in this case was logical CPUs 0-3. CPUs 0-2 were already marked offline and we were in the process of offlining CPU 3. After marking the CPU inactive and offline in cpu_disable, but before the cpu was completely idle (cpu_die), we ended up in __make_request on CPU 3. There we looked at the topology map to see which CPU to complete the I/O on and found no CPUs in the cpu_sibling_map. This resulted in the block layer setting the completion cpu to be NR_CPUS, which then caused an oops when we tried to complete the I/O. Fix this by sanity checking the value we return from blk_cpu_to_group to be a valid cpu value. Signed-off-by: Brian King <brking@linux.vnet.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jaxboe@fusionio.com>

2010-09-09mm: page allocator: drain per-cpu lists after direct reclaim allocation failsMel Gorman
When under significant memory pressure, a process enters direct reclaim and immediately afterwards tries to allocate a page. If it fails and no further progress is made, it's possible the system will go OOM. However, on systems with large amounts of memory, it's possible that a significant number of pages are on per-cpu lists and inaccessible to the calling process. This leads to a process entering direct reclaim more often than it should increasing the pressure on the system and compounding the problem. This patch notes that if direct reclaim is making progress but allocations are still failing that the system is already under heavy pressure. In this case, it drains the per-cpu lists and tries the allocation a second time before continuing.

2010-09-09mm: page allocator: calculate a better estimate of NR_FREE_PAGES when memory ↵Christoph Lameter
is low and kswapd is awake Ordinarily watermark checks are based on the vmstat NR_FREE_PAGES as it is cheaper than scanning a number of lists. To avoid synchronization overhead, counter deltas are maintained on a per-cpu basis and drained both periodically and when the delta is above a threshold. On large CPU systems, the difference between the estimated and real value of NR_FREE_PAGES can be very high. If NR_FREE_PAGES is much higher than number of real free page in buddy, the VM can allocate pages below min watermark, at worst reducing the real number of pages to zero. Even if the OOM killer kills some victim for freeing memory, it may not free memory if the exit path requires a new page resulting in livelock. This patch introduces a zone_page_state_snapshot() function (courtesy of Christoph) that takes a slightly more accurate view of an arbitrary vmstat counter. It is used to read NR_FREE_PAGES while kswapd is awake to avoid the watermark being accidentally broken. The estimate is not perfect and may result in cache line bounces but is expected to be lighter than the IPI calls necessary to continually drain the per-cpu counters while kswapd is awake.

2010-09-09mm: page allocator: update free page counters after pages are placed on the ↵Mel Gorman
free list When allocating a page, the system uses NR_FREE_PAGES counters to determine if watermarks would remain intact after the allocation was made. This check is made without interrupts disabled or the zone lock held and so is race-prone by nature. Unfortunately, when pages are being freed in batch, the counters are updated before the pages are added on the list. During this window, the counters are misleading as the pages do not exist yet. When under significant pressure on systems with large numbers of CPUs, it's possible for processes to make progress even though they should have been stalled. This is particularly problematic if a number of the processes are using GFP_ATOMIC as the min watermark can be accidentally breached and in extreme cases, the system can livelock. This patch updates the counters after the pages have been added to the list. This makes the allocator more cautious with respect to preserving the watermarks and mitigates livelock possibilities.
