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.

2010-03-06bitops: rename for_each_bit() to for_each_set_bit()Akinobu Mita
Rename for_each_bit to for_each_set_bit in the kernel source tree. To permit for_each_clear_bit(), should that ever be added. The patch includes a macro to map the old for_each_bit() onto the new for_each_set_bit(). This is a (very) temporary thing to ease the migration.

2009-08-02sched: Add new prio to cpupri before removing old prioSteven Rostedt
We need to add the new prio to the cpupri accounting before removing the old prio. This is because removing the old prio first will open a race window where the cpu will be removed from pri_active. In this case the cpu will not be visible for RT push and pulls. This could cause a RT task to not migrate appropriately, and create a very large latency. This bug was found with the use of ftrace sched events and trace_printk.

2009-08-02sched: Fix race in cpupri introduced by cpumask_var changesGregory Haskins
Background: Several race conditions in the scheduler have cropped up recently, which Steven and I have tracked down using ftrace. The most recent one turns out to be a race in how the scheduler determines a suitable migration target for RT tasks, introduced recently with commit: commit 68e74568fbe5854952355e942acca51f138096d9 Date: Tue Nov 25 02:35:13 2008 +1030 sched: convert struct cpupri_vec cpumask_var_t. The original design of cpupri allowed lockless readers to quickly determine a best-estimate target. Races between the pri_active bitmap and the vec->mask were handled in the original code because we would detect and return "0" when this occured. The design was predicated on the *effective* atomicity (*) of caching the result of cpus_and() between the cpus_allowed and the vec->mask. Commit 68e74568 changed the behavior such that vec->mask is accessed multiple times. This introduces a subtle race, the result of which means we can have a result that returns "1", but with an empty bitmap. *) yes, we know cpus_and() is not a locked operator across the entire composite array, but it is implicitly atomic on a per-word basis which is all the design required to work. Implementation: Rather than forgoing the lockless design, or reverting to a stack-based cpumask_t, we simply check for when the race has been encountered and continue processing in the event that the race is hit. This renders the removal race as if the priority bit had been atomically cleared as well, and allows the algorithm to execute correctly.

2008-11-24sched: convert struct cpupri_vec cpumask_var_t.Rusty Russell
Impact: stack usage reduction, (future) size reduction for large NR_CPUS. Dynamically allocating cpumasks (when CONFIG_CPUMASK_OFFSTACK) saves space for small nr_cpu_ids but big CONFIG_NR_CPUS. The fact cpupro_init is called both before and after the slab is available makes for an ugly parameter unfortunately. We also use cpumask_any_and to get rid of a temporary in cpupri_find.
