2013-09-26powerpc: Default arch idle could cede processor on pseriesVaidyanathan Srinivasan
commit 363edbe2614aa90df706c0f19ccfa2a6c06af0be upstream. When adding cpuidle support to pSeries, we introduced two regressions: - The new cpuidle backend driver only works under hypervisors supporting the "SLPLAR" option, which isn't the case of the old POWER4 hypervisor and the HV "light" used on js2x blades - The cpuidle driver registers fairly late, meaning that for a significant portion of the boot process, we end up having all threads spinning. This slows down the boot process and increases the overall resource usage if the hypervisor has shared processors. This fixes both by implementing a "default" idle that will cede to the hypervisor when possible, in a very simple way without all the bells and whisles of cpuidle.

2013-05-06powerpc/pseries: Perform proper max_bus_speed detectionKleber Sacilotto de Souza
On pseries machines the detection for max_bus_speed should be done through an OpenFirmware property. This patch adds a function to perform this detection and a hook to perform dynamic adding of the function only for pseries. This is done by overwriting the weak pcibios_root_bridge_prepare function which is called by pci_create_root_bus().

2013-04-26powerpc/pseries: Update firmware_has_feature() to check architecture vector ↵Nathan Fontenot
5 bits The firmware_has_feature() function makes it easy to check for supported features of the hypervisor. This patch extends the capability of firmware_has_feature() to include checking for specified bits in vector 5 of the architecture vector as reported in the device tree. As part of this the #defines used for the architecture vector are re-defined such that each option has the index into vector 5 and the feature bit encoded into it. This makes checking for architecture bits when initiating data for firmware_has_feature much easier.

2013-01-27cputime: Generic on-demand virtual cputime accountingFrederic Weisbecker
If we want to stop the tick further idle, we need to be able to account the cputime without using the tick. Virtual based cputime accounting solves that problem by hooking into kernel/user boundaries. However implementing CONFIG_VIRT_CPU_ACCOUNTING require low level hooks and involves more overhead. But we already have a generic context tracking subsystem that is required for RCU needs by archs which plan to shut down the tick outside idle. This patch implements a generic virtual based cputime accounting that relies on these generic kernel/user hooks. There are some upsides of doing this: - This requires no arch code to implement CONFIG_VIRT_CPU_ACCOUNTING if context tracking is already built (already necessary for RCU in full tickless mode). - We can rely on the generic context tracking subsystem to dynamically (de)activate the hooks, so that we can switch anytime between virtual and tick based accounting. This way we don't have the overhead of the virtual accounting when the tick is running periodically. And one downside: - There is probably more overhead than a native virtual based cputime accounting. But this relies on hooks that are already set anyway.

2013-01-10powerpc: Disable relocation on exceptions whenever PR KVM is activeIan Munsie
For PR KVM we allow userspace to map 0xc000000000000000. Because transitioning from userspace to the guest kernel may use the relocated exception vectors we have to disable relocation on exceptions whenever PR KVM is active as we cannot trust that address. This issue does not apply to HV KVM, since changing from a guest to the hypervisor will never use the relocated exception vectors. Currently the hypervisor interface only allows us to toggle relocation on exceptions on a partition wide scope, so we need to globally disable relocation on exceptions when the first PR KVM instance is started and only re-enable them when all PR KVM instances have been destroyed. It's a bit heavy handed, but until the hypervisor gives us a lightweight way to toggle relocation on exceptions on a single thread it's only real option.

All of them are done no later than ppc_md.setup_arch. That means that the slab/slub isn't ready yet, so we have to allocate memory chunks on basis of PAGE_SIZE for those dynamically created EEH devices. That's pretty expensive. In order to utilize slab/slub for memory allocation, we have to move the EEH initialization functions around, but all of them should be called after slab is ready.

2012-03-09powerpc/eeh: Introduce EEH deviceGavin Shan
Original EEH implementation depends on struct pci_dn heavily. However, EEH shouldn't depend on that actually because EEH needn't share much information with other PCI components. That's to say, EEH should have worked independently. The patch introduces struct eeh_dev so that EEH core components needn't be working based on struct pci_dn in future. Also, struct pci_dn, struct eeh_dev instances are created in dynamic fasion and the binding with EEH device, OF node, PCI device is implemented as well. The EEH devices are created after PHBs are detected and initialized, but PCI emunation hasn't started yet. Apart from that, PHB might be created dynamically through DLPAR component and the EEH devices should be creatd as well. Another case might be OF node is created dynamically by DR (Dynamic Reconfiguration), which has been defined by PAPR. For those OF nodes created by DR, EEH devices should be also created accordingly. The binding between EEH device and OF node is done while the EEH device is initially created. The binding between EEH device and PCI device should be done after PCI emunation is done. Besides, PCI hotplug also needs the binding so that the EEH devices could be traced from the newly coming PCI buses or PCI devices.

2012-03-09powerpc/eeh: Platform dependent EEH operationsGavin Shan
EEH has been implemented on RTAS-compliant pSeries platform. That's to say, the EEH operations will be implemented through RTAS calls eventually. The situation limited feasible extension on EEH. In order to support EEH on multiple platforms like pseries and powernv simutaneously. We have to split the platform dependent EEH options up out of current implementation. The patch addresses supporting EEH on multiple platforms. The pseries platform dependent EEH operations will be abstracted by struct eeh_ops. EEH core components will be built based on the registered EEH operations. With the mechanism, what the individual platform needs to do is implement platform dependent EEH operations. For now, the pseries platform is covered under the mechanism. That means we have to think about other platforms to support EEH, like powernv. Besides, we only have framework for the mechanism and we have to implement it for pseries platform later.

2012-02-23powerpc/mpic: Remove MPIC_BROKEN_FRR_NIRQS and duplicate irq_countKyle Moffett
The mpic->irq_count variable is only used as a software error-checking limit to determine whether or not an IRQ number is valid. In board code which does not manually specify an IRQ count to mpic_alloc(), i.e. 0, it is automatically detected from the number of ISUs and the ISU size. In practice, all hardware ends up with irq_count == num_sources, so all of the runtime checks on mpic->irq_count should just check the value of mpic->num_sources instead. When platform hardware does not correctly report the number of IRQs, which only happens on the MPC85xx/MPC86xx, the MPIC_BROKEN_FRR_NIRQS flag is used to override the detected value of num_sources with the manual irq_count parameter. Since there's no need to manually specify the number of IRQs except in this case, the extra flag can be eliminated and the test changed to "irq_count != 0".

We've had a 180 second panic timeout on ppc64 for as long as I can remember.

2011-06-29powerpc/pseries: Re-implement HVSI as part of hvc_vioBenjamin Herrenschmidt
On pseries machines, consoles are provided by the hypervisor using a low level get_chars/put_chars type interface. However, this is really just a transport to the service processor which implements them either as "raw" console (networked consoles, HMC, ...) or as "hvsi" serial ports. The later is a simple packet protocol on top of the raw character interface that is supposed to convey additional "serial port" style semantics. In practice however, all it does is provide a way to read the CD line and set/clear our DTR line, that's it. We currently implement the "raw" protocol as an hvc console backend (/dev/hvcN) and the "hvsi" protocol using a separate tty driver (/dev/hvsi0). However this is quite impractical. The arbitrary difference between the two type of devices has been a major source of user (and distro) confusion. Additionally, there's an additional mini -hvsi implementation in the pseries platform code for our low level debug console and early boot kernel messages, which means code duplication, though that low level variant is impractical as it's incapable of doing the initial protocol negociation to establish the link to the FSP. This essentially replaces the dedicated hvsi driver and the platform udbg code completely by extending the existing hvc_vio backend used in "raw" mode so that: - It now supports HVSI as well - We add support for hvc backend providing tiocm{get,set} - It also provides a udbg interface for early debug and boot console This is overall less code, though this will only be obvious once we remove the old "hvsi" driver, which is still available for now. When the old driver is enabled, the new code still kicks in for the low level udbg console, replacing the old mini implementation in the platform code, it just doesn't provide the higher level "hvc" interface. In addition to producing generally simler code, this has several benefits over our current situation: - The user/distro only has to deal with /dev/hvcN for the hypervisor console, avoiding all sort of confusion that has plagued us in the past - The tty, kernel and low level debug console all use the same code base which supports the full protocol establishment process, thus the console is now available much earlier than it used to be with the old HVSI driver. The kernel console works much earlier and udbg is available much earlier too. Hackers can enable a hard coded very-early debug console as well that works with HVSI (previously that was only supported for the "raw" mode). I've tried to keep the same semantics as hvsi relative to how I react to things like CD changes, with some subtle differences though: - I clear DTR on close if HUPCL is set - Current hvsi triggers a hangup if it detects a up->down transition on CD (you can still open a console with CD down). My new implementation triggers a hangup if the link to the FSP is severed, and severs it upon detecting a up->down transition on CD. Signed-off-by: Benjamin Herrenschmidt <benh@kernel.crashing.org>
2011-05-19powerpc: Ensure dtl buffers do not cross 4k boundaryNishanth Aravamudan
Future releases of fimrware will enforce a requirement that DTL buffers do not cross a 4k boundary. Commit 127493d5dc73589cbe00ea5ec8357cc2a4c0d82a satisfies this requirement for CONFIG_VIRT_CPU_ACCOUNTING=y kernels, but if !CONFIG_VIRT_CPU_ACCOUNTING && CONFIG_DTL=y, the current code will fail at dtl registration time. Fix this by making the kmem cache from 127493d5dc73589cbe00ea5ec8357cc2a4c0d82a visible outside of setup.c and using the same cache in both dtl.c and setup.c. This requires a bit of reorganization to ensure ordering of the kmem cache and buffer allocations. Note: Since firmware now limits the size of the buffer, I made dtl_buf_entries read-only in debugfs.

2011-04-20powerpc/xics: Rewrite XICS driverBenjamin Herrenschmidt
This is a significant rework of the XICS driver, too significant to conveniently break it up into a series of smaller patches to be honest. The driver is moved to a more generic location to allow new platforms to use it, and is broken up into separate ICP and ICS "backends". For now we have the native and "hypervisor" ICP backends and one common RTAS ICS backend. The driver supports one ICP backend instanciation, and many ICS ones, in order to accomodate future platforms with multiple possibly different interrupt "sources" mechanisms.

2011-04-18powerpc/pseries: Use a kmem cache for DTL buffersNishanth Aravamudan
PAPR specifies that DTL buffers can not cross AMS environments (aka CMO in the PAPR) and can not cross a memory entitlement granule boundary (4k). This is found in section H_REGISTER_VPA of the PAPR. kmalloc does not guarantee an alignment of the allocation, though, beyond 8 bytes (at least in my understanding). Create a special kmem cache for DTL buffers with the alignment requirement. Signed-off-by: Benjamin Herrenschmidt <benh@kernel.crashing.org>

2010-09-02powerpc: Account time using timebase rather than PURRPaul Mackerras
Currently, when CONFIG_VIRT_CPU_ACCOUNTING is enabled, we use the PURR register for measuring the user and system time used by processes, as well as other related times such as hardirq and softirq times. This turns out to be quite confusing for users because it means that a program will often be measured as taking less time when run on a multi-threaded processor (SMT2 or SMT4 mode) than it does when run on a single-threaded processor (ST mode), even though the program takes longer to finish. The discrepancy is accounted for as stolen time, which is also confusing, particularly when there are no other partitions running. This changes the accounting to use the timebase instead, meaning that the reported user and system times are the actual number of real-time seconds that the program was executing on the processor thread, regardless of which SMT mode the processor is in. Thus a program will generally show greater user and system times when run on a multi-threaded processor than on a single-threaded processor. On pSeries systems on POWER5 or later processors, we measure the stolen time (time when this partition wasn't running) using the hypervisor dispatch trace log. We check for new entries in the log on every entry from user mode and on every transition from kernel process context to soft or hard IRQ context (i.e. when account_system_vtime() gets called). So that we can correctly distinguish time stolen from user time and time stolen from system time, without having to check the log on every exit to user mode, we store separate timestamps for exit to user mode and entry from user mode. On systems that have a SPURR (POWER6 and POWER7), we read the SPURR in account_system_vtime() (as before), and then apportion the SPURR ticks since the last time we read it between scaled user time and scaled system time according to the relative proportions of user time and system time over the same interval. This avoids having to read the SPURR on every kernel entry and exit. On systems that have PURR but not SPURR (i.e., POWER5), we do the same using the PURR rather than the SPURR. This disables the DTL user interface in /sys/debug/kernel/powerpc/dtl for now since it conflicts with the use of the dispatch trace log by the time accounting code.

2010-05-21powerpc: Use smt_snooze_delay=-1 to always busy loopAnton Blanchard
Right now if we want to busy loop and not give up any time to the hypervisor we put a very large value into smt_snooze_delay. This is sometimes useful when running a single partition and you want to avoid any latencies due to the hypervisor or CPU power state transitions. While this works, it's a bit ugly - how big a number is enough now we have NO_HZ and can be idle for a very long time. The patch below makes smt_snooze_delay signed, and a negative value means loop forever: echo -1 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/smt_snooze_delay This change shouldn't affect the existing userspace tools (eg ppc64_cpu), but I'm cc-ing Nathan just to be sure.

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.

2009-09-11powerpc: Fix bug where perf_counters breaks oprofilePaul Mackerras
Currently there is a bug where if you use oprofile on a pSeries machine, then use perf_counters, then use oprofile again, oprofile will not work correctly; it will lose the PMU configuration the next time the hypervisor does a partition context switch, and thereafter won't count anything. Maynard Johnson identified the sequence causing the problem: - oprofile setup calls ppc_enable_pmcs(), which calls pseries_lpar_enable_pmcs, which tells the hypervisor that we want to use the PMU, and sets the "PMU in use" flag in the lppaca. This flag tells the hypervisor whether it needs to save and restore the PMU config. - The perf_counter code sets and clears the "PMU in use" flag directly as it context-switches the PMU between tasks, and leaves it clear when it finishes. - oprofile setup, called for a new oprofile run, calls ppc_enable_pmcs, which does nothing because it has already been called. In particular it doesn't set the "PMU in use" flag. This fixes the problem by arranging for ppc_enable_pmcs to always set the "PMU in use" flag. It makes the perf_counter code call ppc_enable_pmcs also rather than calling the lower-level function directly, and removes the setting of the "PMU in use" flag from pseries_lpar_enable_pmcs, since that is now done in its caller. This also removes the declaration of pasemi_enable_pmcs because it isn't defined anywhere.

Add a DEBUG config setting which turns on all (most) of the debugging under platforms/pseries. To have this take effect we need to remove all the #undef DEBUG's, in various files. We leave the #undef DEBUG in platforms/pseries/lpar.c, as this enables debugging printks from the low-level hash table routines, and tends to make your system unusable. If you want those enabled you still have to turn them on by hand. Also some of the RAS code has a DEBUG block which causes a functional change, so I've keyed this off a different (non-existant) debug #define.
