2008-02-23cgroup memory controller: document huge memory/cache overhead in KconfigAndi Kleen
Document huge memory/cache overhead of memory controller in Kconfig I was a little surprised that 2.6.25-rc* increased struct page for the memory controller. At least on many x86-64 machines it will not fit into a single cache line now anymore and also costs considerable amounts of RAM. At earlier review I remembered asking for a external data structure for this. It's also quite unobvious that a innocent looking Kconfig option with a single line Kconfig description has such a negative effect. This patch attempts to document these disadvantages at least so that users configuring their kernel can make a informed decision.

2008-02-08start the global /sbin/init with 0,0 special pidsOleg Nesterov
As Eric pointed out, there is no problem with init starting with sid == pgid == 0, and this was historical linux behavior changed in 2.6.18. Remove kernel_init()->__set_special_pids(), this is unneeded and complicates the rules for sys_setsid(). This change and the previous change in daemonize() mean that /sbin/init does not need the special "session != 1" hack in sys_setsid() any longer. We can't remove this check yet, we should cleanup copy_process(CLONE_NEWPID) first, so update the comment only. Signed-off-by: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@tv-sign.ru> Acked-by: "Eric W.

2008-02-08namespaces: move the IPC namespace under IPC_NS optionPavel Emelyanov
Currently the IPC namespace management code is spread over the ipc/*.c files. I moved this code into ipc/namespace.c file which is compiled out when needed. The linux/ipc_namespace.h file is used to store the prototypes of the functions in namespace.c and the stubs for NAMESPACES=n case. This is done so, because the stub for copy_ipc_namespace requires the knowledge of the CLONE_NEWIPC flag, which is in sched.h. But the linux/ipc.h file itself in included into many many .c files via the sys.h->sem.h sequence so adding the sched.h into it will make all these .c depend on sched.h which is not that good. On the other hand the knowledge about the namespaces stuff is required in 4 .c files only. Besides, this patch compiles out some auxiliary functions from ipc/sem.c, msg.c and shm.c files. It turned out that moving these functions into namespaces.c is not that easy because they use many other calls and macros from the original file. Moving them would make this patch complicated. On the other hand all these functions can be consolidated, so I will send a separate patch doing this a bit later.

2008-02-03Create arch/KconfigMathieu Desnoyers
Puts the content of arch/Kconfig in the "General setup" menu. Linus: > Should it come with a re-duplication of it's content into each > architecture, which was the case previously ? The oprofile and kprobes > menu entries were litteraly cut and pasted from one architecture to > another. Should we put its content in init/Kconfig then ? I don't think it's a good idea to go back to making it per-architecture, although that extensive "depends on <list-of-archiectures-here>" might indicate that there certainly is room for cleanup there. And I don't think it's wrong keeping it in kernel/Kconfig.xyz per se, I just think it's wrong to (a) lump the code together when it really doesn't necessarily need to and (b) show it to users as some kind of choice that is tied together (whether it then has common code or not). On the per-architecture side, I do think it would be better to *not* have internal architecture knowledge in a generic file, and as such a line like depends on X86_32 || IA64 || PPC || S390 || SPARC64 || X86_64 || AVR32 really shouldn't exist in a file like kernel/Kconfig.instrumentation. It would be much better to do depends on ARCH_SUPPORTS_KPROBES in that generic file, and then architectures that do support it would just have a bool ARCH_SUPPORTS_KPROBES default y in *their* architecture files. That would seem to be much more logical, and is readable both for arch maintainers *and* for people who have no clue - and don't care - about which architecture is supposed to support which interface... Sam Ravnborg: Stuff it into a new file: arch/Kconfig We can then extend this file to include all the 'trailing' Kconfig things that are anyway equal for all ARCHs. But it should be kept clean - so if we introduce such a file then we should use ARCH_HAS_whatever in the arch specific Kconfig files to enable stuff that is not shared. [...] The above suggestion is actually not exactly the best way to do it... First the naming.. A quick grep shows following usage today (in Kconfig files) ARCH_HAS 51 ARCH_SUPPORTS 4 HAVE_ARCH 7 ARCH_HAS is the clear winner. In the common Kconfig file do: config FOO depends on ARCH_HAS_FOO bool "bla bla" config ARCH_HAS_FOO def_bool n In the arch specific Kconfig file in a suitable place do: config SUITABLE_OPTION select ARCH_HAS_FOO The naming of ARCH_HAS_ is fixed and shall be: ARCH_HAS_<config option it will enable> Only a single line added pr. architecture. And we will end up with a (maybe even commented) list of trivial selects. - Yet another update : Moving to HAVE_* now.

2008-01-30x86: optimize lock prefix switching to run less frequentlyAndi Kleen
On VMs implemented using JITs that cache translated code changing the lock prefixes is a quite costly operation that forces the JIT to throw away and retranslate a lot of code. Previously a SMP kernel would rewrite the locks once for each CPU which is quite unnecessary. This patch changes the code to never switch at boot in the normal case (SMP kernel booting with >1 CPU) or only once for SMP kernel on UP. This makes a significant difference in boot up performance on AMD SimNow! Also I expect it to be a little faster on native systems too because a smp switch does a lot of text_poke()s which each synchronize the pipeline. v1->v2: Rename max_cpus v1->v2: Fix off by one in UP check (Thomas Gleixner) Signed-off-by: Andi Kleen <ak@suse.de> Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Signed-off-by: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de>

2008-01-25Preempt-RCU: implementationPaul E. McKenney
This patch implements a new version of RCU which allows its read-side critical sections to be preempted. It uses a set of counter pairs to keep track of the read-side critical sections and flips them when all tasks exit read-side critical section. The details of this implementation can be found in this paper - http://www.rdrop.com/users/paulmck/RCU/OLSrtRCU.2006.08.11a.pdf and the article- http://lwn.net/Articles/253651/ This patch was developed as a part of the -rt kernel development and meant to provide better latencies when read-side critical sections of RCU don't disable preemption. As a consequence of keeping track of RCU readers, the readers have a slight overhead (optimizations in the paper). This implementation co-exists with the "classic" RCU implementations and can be switched to at compiler. Also includes RCU tracing summarized in debugfs.

2008-01-25cpu-hotplug: refcount based cpu hotplugGautham R Shenoy
This patch implements a Refcount + Waitqueue based model for cpu-hotplug. Now, a thread which wants to prevent cpu-hotplug, will bump up a global refcount and the thread which wants to perform a cpu-hotplug operation will block till the global refcount goes to zero. The readers, if any, during an ongoing cpu-hotplug operation are blocked until the cpu-hotplug operation is over.

2008-01-25security: remove security_sb_post_mountroot hookH. Peter Anvin
The security_sb_post_mountroot() hook is long-since obsolete, and is fundamentally broken: it is never invoked if someone uses initramfs. This is particularly damaging, because the existence of this hook has been used as motivation for not using initramfs. Stephen Smalley confirmed on 2007-07-19 that this hook was originally used by SELinux but can now be safely removed: http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=118485683612916&w=2 Cc: Stephen Smalley <sds@tycho.nsa.gov> Cc: James Morris <jmorris@namei.org> Cc: Eric Paris <eparis@parisplace.org> Cc: Chris Wright <chrisw@sous-sol.org> Signed-off-by: H.

2008-01-02Unify /proc/slabinfo configurationLinus Torvalds
Both SLUB and SLAB really did almost exactly the same thing for /proc/slabinfo setup, using duplicate code and per-allocator #ifdef's. This just creates a common CONFIG_SLABINFO that is enabled by both SLUB and SLAB, and shares all the setup code. Maybe SLOB will want this some day too.

2007-12-02sched: cpu accounting controller (V2)Srivatsa Vaddagiri
Commit cfb5285660aad4931b2ebbfa902ea48a37dfffa1 removed a useful feature for us, which provided a cpu accounting resource controller. This feature would be useful if someone wants to group tasks only for accounting purpose and doesnt really want to exercise any control over their cpu consumption. The patch below reintroduces the feature. It is based on Paul Menage's original patch (Commit 62d0df64065e7c135d0002f069444fbdfc64768f), with these differences: - Removed load average information. I felt it needs more thought (esp to deal with SMP and virtualized platforms) and can be added for 2.6.25 after more discussions. - Convert group cpu usage to be nanosecond accurate (as rest of the cfs stats are) and invoke cpuacct_charge() from the respective scheduler classes - Make accounting scalable on SMP systems by splitting the usage counter to be per-cpu - Move the code from kernel/cpu_acct.c to kernel/sched.c (since the code is not big enough to warrant a new file and also this rightly needs to live inside the scheduler. Also things like accessing rq->lock while reading cpu usage becomes easier if the code lived in kernel/sched.c) The patch also modifies the cpu controller not to provide the same accounting information. Tested-by: Balbir Singh <balbir@linux.vnet.ibm.com> Tested the patches on top of 2.6.24-rc3. The patches work fine. Ran some simple tests like cpuspin (spin on the cpu), ran several tasks in the same group and timed them. Compared their time stamps with cpuacct.usage.

2007-11-14pidns: Place under CONFIG_EXPERIMENTALEric W. Biederman
This is my trivial patch to swat innumerable little bugs with a single blow. After some intensive review (my apologies for not having gotten to this sooner) what we have looks like a good base to build on with the current pid namespace code but it is not complete, and it is still much to simple to find issues where the kernel does the wrong thing outside of the initial pid namespace. Until the dust settles and we are certain we have the ABI and the implementation is as correct as humanly possible let's keep process ID namespaces behind CONFIG_EXPERIMENTAL. Allowing us the option of fixing any ABI or other bugs we find as long as they are minor. Allowing users of the kernel to avoid those bugs simply by ensuring their kernel does not have support for multiple pid namespaces.
