2009-11-13nohz: Allow 32-bit machines to sleep for more than 2.15 secondsJon Hunter
In the dynamic tick code, "max_delta_ns" (member of the "clock_event_device" structure) represents the maximum sleep time that can occur between timer events in nanoseconds. The variable, "max_delta_ns", is defined as an unsigned long which is a 32-bit integer for 32-bit machines and a 64-bit integer for 64-bit machines (if -m64 option is used for gcc). The value of max_delta_ns is set by calling the function "clockevent_delta2ns()" which returns a maximum value of LONG_MAX. For a 32-bit machine LONG_MAX is equal to 0x7fffffff and in nanoseconds this equates to ~2.15 seconds. Hence, the maximum sleep time for a 32-bit machine is ~2.15 seconds, where as for a 64-bit machine it will be many years. This patch changes the type of max_delta_ns to be "u64" instead of "unsigned long" so that this variable is a 64-bit type for both 32-bit and 64-bit machines. It also changes the maximum value returned by clockevent_delta2ns() to KTIME_MAX. Hence this allows a 32-bit machine to sleep for longer than ~2.15 seconds. Please note that this patch also changes "min_delta_ns" to be "u64" too and although this is unnecessary, it makes the patch simpler as it avoids to fixup all callers of clockevent_delta2ns().

2009-11-13nohz: Track last do_timer() cpuThomas Gleixner
The previous patch which limits the sleep time to the maximum deferment time of the time keeping clocksource has some limitations on SMP machines: if all CPUs are idle then for all CPUs the maximum sleep time is limited. Solve this by keeping track of which cpu had the do_timer() duty assigned last and limit the sleep time only for this cpu.

2009-11-13nohz: Prevent clocksource wrapping during idleJon Hunter
The dynamic tick allows the kernel to sleep for periods longer than a single tick, but it does not limit the sleep time currently. In the worst case the kernel could sleep longer than the wrap around time of the time keeping clock source which would result in losing track of time. Prevent this by limiting it to the safe maximum sleep time of the current time keeping clock source. The value is calculated when the clock source is registered.

2009-11-13clocksource: Provide a generic mult/shift factor calculationThomas Gleixner
MIPS has two functions to calculcate the mult/shift factors for clock sources and clock events at run time. ARM needs such functions as well. Implement a function which calculates the mult/shift factors based on the frequencies to which and from which is converted. The function also has a parameter to specify the minimum conversion range in seconds. This range is guaranteed not to produce a 64bit overflow when a value is multiplied with the calculated mult factor. The larger the conversion range the less becomes the conversion accuracy. Provide two inline wrappers which handle clock events and clock sources. For clock events the "from" frequency is nano seconds per second which corresponds to 1GHz and "to" is the device frequency. For clock sources "from" is the device frequency and "to" is nano seconds per second.

2009-11-13clockevents: Use u32 for mult and shift factorsThomas Gleixner
The mult and shift factors of clock events differ in their data type from those of clock sources for no reason. u32 is sufficient for both. shift is always <= 32 and mult is limited to 2^32-1 to avoid 64bit multiplication overflows in the conversion.

2009-11-05nohz: Introduce arch_needs_cpuMartin Schwidefsky
Allow the architecture to request a normal jiffy tick when the system goes idle and tick_nohz_stop_sched_tick is called . On s390 the hook is used to prevent the system going fully idle if there has been an interrupt other than a clock comparator interrupt since the last wakeup. On s390 the HiperSockets response time for 1 connection ping-pong goes down from 42 to 34 microseconds. The CPU cost decreases by 27%.

2009-10-05time: Implement logarithmic time accumulationjohn stultz
Accumulating one tick at a time works well unless we're using NOHZ. Then it can be an issue, since we may have to run through the loop a few thousand times, which can increase timer interrupt caused latency. The current solution was to accumulate in half-second intervals with NOHZ. This kept the number of loops down, however it did slightly change how we make NTP adjustments. While not an issue with NTPd users, as NTPd makes adjustments over a longer period of time, other adjtimex() users have noticed the half-second granularity with which we can apply frequency changes to the clock. For instance, if a application tries to apply a 100ppm frequency correction for 20ms to correct a 2us offset, with NOHZ they either get no correction, or a 50us correction. Now, there will always be some granularity error for applying frequency corrections. However with users sensitive to this error have seen a 50-500x increase with NOHZ compared to running without NOHZ. So I figured I'd try another approach then just simply increasing the interval. My approach is to consume the time interval logarithmically. This reduces the number of times through the loop needed keeping latency down, while still preserving the original granularity error for adjtimex() changes. Further, this change allows us to remove the xtime_cache code (patch to follow), as xtime is always within one tick of the current time, instead of the half-second updates it saw before. An earlier version of this patch has been shipping to x86 users in the RedHat MRG releases for awhile without issue, but I've reworked this version to be even more careful about avoiding possible overflows if the shift value gets too large.

2009-10-01memcg: some modification to softlimit under hierarchical memory reclaim.KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki
This patch clean up/fixes for memcg's uncharge soft limit path. Problems: Now, res_counter_charge()/uncharge() handles softlimit information at charge/uncharge and softlimit-check is done when event counter per memcg goes over limit. Now, event counter per memcg is updated only when memory usage is over soft limit. Here, considering hierarchical memcg management, ancesotors should be taken care of. Now, ancerstors(hierarchy) are handled in charge() but not in uncharge(). This is not good. Prolems: 1. memcg's event counter incremented only when softlimit hits. That's bad. It makes event counter hard to be reused for other purpose. 2. At uncharge, only the lowest level rescounter is handled. This is bug. Because ancesotor's event counter is not incremented, children should take care of them. 3. res_counter_uncharge()'s 3rd argument is NULL in most case. ops under res_counter->lock should be small. No "if" sentense is better. Fixes: * Removed soft_limit_xx poitner and checks in charge and uncharge. Do-check-only-when-necessary scheme works enough well without them. * make event-counter of memcg incremented at every charge/uncharge. (per-cpu area will be accessed soon anyway) * All ancestors are checked at soft-limit-check. This is necessary because ancesotor's event counter may never be modified. Then, they should be checked at the same time.

Work around problems in the writeback code to force out writebacks in larger chunks than just 4mb, which is just too small. This also works around limitations in the ext4 block allocator, which can't allocate more than 2048 blocks at a time. So we need to defeat the round-robin characteristics of the writeback code and try to write out as many blocks in one inode before allowing the writeback code to move on to another inode. We add a a new per-filesystem tunable, max_writeback_mb_bump, which caps this to a default of 128mb per inode. Signed-off-by: "Theodore Ts'o" <tytso@mit.edu>

The following commit made console open fails while booting: commit b50989dc444599c8b21edc23536fc305f4e9b7d5 Author: Alan Cox <alan@linux.intel.com> Date: Sat Sep 19 13:13:22 2009 -0700 tty: make the kref destructor occur asynchronously Due to tty release routines run in a workqueue now, error like the following will be reported while booting: INIT open /dev/console Input/output error It also causes hibernation regression to appear as reported at http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14229 The reason is that now there's latency issue with closing, but when we open a "closing not finished" tty, -EIO will be returned. Fix it as per the following Alan's suggestion: Fun but it's actually not a bug and the fix is wrong in itself as the port may be closing but not yet being destructed, in which case it seems to do the wrong thing. Opening a tty that is closing (and could be closing for long periods) is supposed to return -EIO. I suspect a better way to deal with this and keep the old console timing is to split tty->shutdown into two functions. tty->shutdown() - called synchronously just before we dump the tty onto the waitqueue for destruction tty->cleanup() - called when the destructor runs. We would then do the shutdown part which can occur in IRQ context fine, before queueing the rest of the release (from tty->magic = 0 ... the end) to occur asynchronously The USB update in -next would then need a call like if (tty->cleanup) tty->cleanup(tty); at the top of the async function and the USB shutdown to be split between shutdown and cleanup as the USB resource cleanup and final tidy cannot occur synchronously as it needs to sleep. In other words the logic becomes final kref put make object unfindable async clean it up Signed-off-by: Dave Young <hidave.darkstar@gmail.com> [ rjw: Rebased on top of 2.6.31-git, reworked the changelog. ] Signed-off-by: "Rafael J.

2009-09-26writeback: pass in super_block to bdi_start_writeback()Jens Axboe
Sometimes we only want to write pages from a specific super_block, so allow that to be passed in. This fixes a problem with commit 56a131dcf7ed36c3c6e36bea448b674ea85ed5bb causing writeback on all super_blocks on a bdi, where we only really want to sync a specific sb from writeback_inodes_sb().

2009-09-25ACPI: remove acpi_device.flags.hardware_idBjorn Helgaas
Every acpi_device has at least one ID (if there's no _HID or _CID, we give it a synthetic or default ID). So there's no longer a need to check whether an ID exists; we can just use it. Signed-off-by: Bjorn Helgaas <bjorn.helgaas@hp.com> Signed-off-by: Len Brown <len.brown@intel.com>
2009-09-25ACPI: remove acpi_device.flags.compatible_idsBjorn Helgaas

2009-09-25ACPI: maintain a single list of _HID and _CID IDsBjorn Helgaas
There's no need to treat _HID and _CID differently. Keeping them in a single list makes code that uses the IDs a little simpler because it can just traverse the list rather than checking "do we have a HID?", "do we have any CIDs?"

2009-09-25ACPI: add acpi_bus_get_status_handle()Bjorn Helgaas
Add acpi_bus_get_status_handle() so we can get the status of a namespace object before building a struct acpi_device. This removes a use of "device->flags.dynamic_status", a cached indicator of whether _STA exists. It seems simpler and more reliable to just evaluate _STA and catch AE_NOT_FOUND errors.

2009-09-25ACPI: identify device tree root by null parent pointer, not ACPI_BUS_TYPEBjorn Helgaas
We can identify the root of the ACPI device tree by the fact that it has no parent. This is simpler than passing around ACPI_BUS_TYPE_SYSTEM and will help remove special treatment of the device tree root. Currently, we add the root by hand with ACPI_BUS_TYPE_SYSTEM. If we traverse the tree treating the root as just another device and use acpi_get_type(), the root shows up as ACPI_TYPE_DEVICE.

2009-09-25ACPI: save device_type in acpi_deviceBjorn Helgaas
Most uses of the ACPI bus device_type (ACPI_BUS_TYPE_DEVICE, ACPI_BUS_TYPE_POWER, etc) are during device initialization, but we do need it later for notify handler installation, since that is different for fixed hardware devices vs. namespace devices. This patch saves the device_type in the acpi_device structure, so we can check that rather than comparing against the _HID string.

2009-09-25drm/kms: start adding command line interface using fb.Dave Airlie
[note this requires an fb patch posted to linux-fbdev-devel already] This uses the normal video= command line option to control the kms output setup at boot time. It is used to override the autodetection done by kms. video= normally takes a framebuffer as the first parameter, in kms it will take a connector name, DVI-I-1, or LVDS-1 etc. If no output connector is specified the mode string will apply to all connectors. The mode specification used will match down the probed modes, and if no mode is found it will add a CVT mode that matches. video=1024x768 - all connectors match a 1024x768 mode or add a CVT on video=VGA-1:1024x768, VGA-1 connector gets mode only. The same strings as used in current fb modedb.c are used, except I've added three more letters, e, D, d, e = enable, D = enable Digital, d = disable, which allow a connector to be forced into a certain state.

2009-09-24Optimize the ordering of sections in RW_DATA_SECTION.Tim Abbott
The old RW_DATA_SECTION had INIT_TASK_DATA (which was more-than-PAGE_SIZE-aligned), followed by a bunch of small alignment stuff, followed by more PAGE_SIZE-aligned stuff, so you wasted memory in the middle of .data re-aligning back up to PAGE_SIZE. This patch sorts the sections by alignment requirements, which should pack them essentially optimally.
