McKenney: " The major features of this series are: 1. A first version of no-callbacks CPUs. This version prohibits offlining CPU 0, but only when enabled via CONFIG_RCU_NOCB_CPU=y. Relaxing this constraint is in progress, but not yet ready for prime time. These commits were posted to LKML at https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/10/30/724, and are at branch rcu/nocb. 2. Changes to SRCU that allows statically initialized srcu_struct structures. These commits were posted to LKML at https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/10/30/296, and are at branch rcu/srcu. 3. Restructuring of RCU's debugfs output. These commits were posted to LKML at https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/10/30/341, and are at branch rcu/tracing. 4. Additional CPU-hotplug/RCU improvements, posted to LKML at https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/10/30/327, and are at branch rcu/hotplug. Note that the commit eliminating __stop_machine() was judged to be too-high of risk, so is deferred to 3.9. 5. Changes to RCU's idle interface, most notably a new module parameter that redirects normal grace-period operations to their expedited equivalents. These were posted to LKML at https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/10/30/739, and are at branch rcu/idle. 6. Additional diagnostics for RCU's CPU stall warning facility, posted to LKML at https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/10/30/315, and are at branch rcu/stall. The most notable change reduces the default RCU CPU stall-warning time from 60 seconds to 21 seconds, so that it once again happens sooner than the softlockup timeout. 7. Documentation updates, which were posted to LKML at https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/10/30/280, and are at branch rcu/doc. A couple of late-breaking changes were posted at https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/11/16/634 and https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/11/16/547. 8.

2012-11-30context_tracking: New context tracking susbsystemFrederic Weisbecker
Create a new subsystem that probes on kernel boundaries to keep track of the transitions between level contexts with two basic initial contexts: user or kernel. This is an abstraction of some RCU code that use such tracking to implement its userspace extended quiescent state. We need to pull this up from RCU into this new level of indirection because this tracking is also going to be used to implement an "on demand" generic virtual cputime accounting.

2012-10-25Makefile: Documentation for external tool should be correctH. Peter Anvin
If one includes documentation for an external tool, it should be correct. This is not: 1. Overriding the input to rngd should typically be neither necessary nor desired. This is especially so since newer versions of rngd support a number of different *types* of sources. 2. The default kernel-exported device is called /dev/hwrng not /dev/hwrandom nor /dev/hw_random (both of which were used in the past; however, kernel and udev seem to have converged on /dev/hwrng.) Overall it is better if the documentation for rngd is kept with rngd rather than in a kernel Makefile. Signed-off-by: H.

It doesn't, because the clean targets don't include kernel/Makefile, and because two files were missing from the list. Signed-off-by: Rusty Russell <rusty@rustcorp.com.au>
2012-10-10MODSIGN: Use utf8 strings in signer's name in autogenerated X.509 certsDavid Howells

2012-10-10MODSIGN: Use the same digest for the autogen key sig as for the module sigDavid Howells
Use the same digest type for the autogenerated key signature as for the module signature so that the hash algorithm is guaranteed to be present in the kernel. Without this, the X.509 certificate loader may reject the X.509 certificate so generated because it was self-signed and the signature will be checked against itself - but this won't work if the digest algorithm must be loaded as a module. The symptom is that the key fails to load with the following message emitted into the kernel log: MODSIGN: Problem loading in-kernel X.509 certificate (-65) the error in brackets being -ENOPKG. What you should see is something like: MODSIGN: Loaded cert 'Magarathea: Glacier signing key: 9588321144239a119d3406d4c4cf1fbae1836fa0' Note that this doesn't apply to certificates that are not self-signed as we don't check those currently as they require the parent CA certificate to be available.

It is probably worth permitting root to invalidate these keys, resulting in their removal and preventing further modules from being loaded with that key.

2012-10-10MODSIGN: Automatically generate module signing keys if missingDavid Howells
Automatically generate keys for module signing if they're absent so that allyesconfig doesn't break. The builder should consider generating their own key and certificate, however, so that the keys are appropriately named. The private key for the module signer should be placed in signing_key.priv (unencrypted!) and the public key in an X.509 certificate as signing_key.x509. If a transient key is desired for signing the modules, a config file for 'openssl req' can be placed in x509.genkey, looking something like the following: [ req ] default_bits = 4096 distinguished_name = req_distinguished_name prompt = no x509_extensions = myexts [ req_distinguished_name ] O = Magarathea CN = Glacier signing key emailAddress = slartibartfast@magrathea.h2g2 [ myexts ] basicConstraints=critical,CA:FALSE keyUsage=digitalSignature subjectKeyIdentifier=hash authorityKeyIdentifier=hash The build process will use this to configure: openssl req -new -nodes -utf8 -sha1 -days 36500 -batch \ -x509 -config x509.genkey \ -outform DER -out signing_key.x509 \ -keyout signing_key.priv to generate the key. Note that it is required that the X.509 certificate have a subjectKeyIdentifier and an authorityKeyIdentifier. Without those, the certificate will be rejected. These can be used to check the validity of a certificate. Note that 'make distclean' will remove signing_key.{priv,x509} and x509.genkey, whether or not they were generated automatically.

2012-10-10module: signature checking hookRusty Russell
We do a very simple search for a particular string appended to the module (which is cache-hot and about to be SHA'd anyway). There's both a config option and a boot parameter which control whether we accept or fail with unsigned modules and modules that are signed with an unknown key. If module signing is enabled, the kernel will be tainted if a module is loaded that is unsigned or has a signature for which we don't have the key.

Commit 56449f437 "tracing: make the trace clocks available generally", in April 2009, made trace_clock available unconditionally, since CONFIG_X86_DS used it too. Commit faa4602e47 "x86, perf, bts, mm: Delete the never used BTS-ptrace code", in March 2010, removed CONFIG_X86_DS, and now only CONFIG_RING_BUFFER (split out from CONFIG_TRACING for general use) has a dependency on trace_clock.

2012-05-31syscalls, x86: add __NR_kcmp syscallCyrill Gorcunov
While doing the checkpoint-restore in the user space one need to determine whether various kernel objects (like mm_struct-s of file_struct-s) are shared between tasks and restore this state. The 2nd step can be solved by using appropriate CLONE_ flags and the unshare syscall, while there's currently no ways for solving the 1st one. One of the ways for checking whether two tasks share e.g. mm_struct is to provide some mm_struct ID of a task to its proc file, but showing such info considered to be not that good for security reasons. Thus after some debates we end up in conclusion that using that named 'comparison' syscall might be the best candidate. So here is it -- __NR_kcmp. It takes up to 5 arguments - the pids of the two tasks (which characteristics should be compared), the comparison type and (in case of comparison of files) two file descriptors. Lookups for pids are done in the caller's PID namespace only. At moment only x86 is supported and tested.

2012-05-29brlocks/lglocks: turn into functionsAndi Kleen
lglocks and brlocks are currently generated with some complicated macros in lglock.h. But there's no reason to not just use common utility functions and put all the data into a common data structure. Since there are at least two users it makes sense to share this code in a library. This is also easier maintainable than a macro forest.

The callback can rely on PF_EXITING to detect the latter case. "struct task_work" can be embedded in another struct, still it has "void *data" to handle the most common/simple case. This allows us to kill the ->replacement_session_keyring hack, and potentially this can have more users. Performance-wise, this adds 2 "unlikely(!hlist_empty())" checks into tracehook_notify_resume() and do_exit(). But at the same time we can remove the "replacement_session_keyring != NULL" checks from arch/*/signal.c and exit_creds(). Note: task_work_add/task_work_run abuses ->pi_lock. This is only because this lock is already used by lookup_pi_state() to synchronize with do_exit() setting PF_EXITING. Fortunately the scope of this lock in task_work.c is really tiny, and the code is unlikely anyway.

2012-01-24sysctl: Move the implementation into fs/proc/proc_sysctl.cEric W. Biederman
Move the core sysctl code from kernel/sysctl.c and kernel/sysctl_check.c into fs/proc/proc_sysctl.c. Currently sysctl maintenance is hampered by the sysctl implementation being split across 3 files with artificial layering between them. Consolidate the entire sysctl implementation into 1 file so that it is easier to see what is going on and hopefully allowing for simpler maintenance. For functions that are now only used in fs/proc/proc_sysctl.c remove their declarations from sysctl.h and make them static in fs/proc/proc_sysctl.c Signed-off-by: Eric W.

2011-08-05jump label: Reduce the cycle count by changing the link orderJason Baron
In the course of testing jump labels for use with the CFS bandwidth controller, Paul Turner, discovered that using jump labels reduced the branch count and the instruction count, but did not reduce the cycle count or wall time. I noticed that having the jump_label.o included in the kernel but not used in any way still caused this increase in cycle count and wall time. Thus, I moved jump_label.o in the kernel/Makefile, thus changing the link order, and presumably moving it out of hot icache areas. This brought down the cycle count/time as expected. In addition to Paul's testing, I've tested the patch using a single 'static_branch()' in the getppid() path, and basically running tight loops of calls to getppid(). Here are my results for the branch disabled case: With jump labels turned on (CONFIG_JUMP_LABEL), branch disabled: Performance counter stats for 'bash -c /tmp/getppid;true' (50 runs): 3,969,510,217 instructions # 0.864 IPC ( +-0.000% ) 4,592,334,954 cycles ( +- 0.046% ) 751,634,470 branches ( +- 0.000% ) 1.722635797 seconds time elapsed ( +- 0.046% ) Jump labels turned off (CONFIG_JUMP_LABEL not set), branch disabled: Performance counter stats for 'bash -c /tmp/getppid;true' (50 runs): 4,009,611,846 instructions # 0.867 IPC ( +-0.000% ) 4,622,210,580 cycles ( +- 0.012% ) 771,662,904 branches ( +- 0.000% ) 1.734341454 seconds time elapsed ( +- 0.022% ) Signed-off-by: Jason Baron <jbaron@redhat.com> Cc: rth@redhat.com Cc: a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl Cc: rostedt@goodmis.org Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/20110805204040.GG2522@redhat.com Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Tested-by: Paul Turner <pjt@google.com>

2011-05-26cgroup: remove the ns_cgroupDaniel Lezcano
The ns_cgroup is an annoying cgroup at the namespace / cgroup frontier and leads to some problems: * cgroup creation is out-of-control * cgroup name can conflict when pids are looping * it is not possible to have a single process handling a lot of namespaces without falling in a exponential creation time * we may want to create a namespace without creating a cgroup The ns_cgroup was replaced by a compatibility flag 'clone_children', where a newly created cgroup will copy the parent cgroup values. The userspace has to manually create a cgroup and add a task to the 'tasks' file. This patch removes the ns_cgroup as suggested in the following thread: https://lists.linux-foundation.org/pipermail/containers/2009-June/018616.html The 'cgroup_clone' function is removed because it is no longer used. This is a userspace-visible change. Commit 45531757b45c ("cgroup: notify ns_cgroup deprecated") (merged into 2.6.27) caused the kernel to emit a printk warning users that the feature is planned for removal.

2010-10-18irq_work: Add generic hardirq context callbacksPeter Zijlstra
Provide a mechanism that allows running code in IRQ context. It is most useful for NMI code that needs to interact with the rest of the system -- like wakeup a task to drain buffers. Perf currently has such a mechanism, so extract that and provide it as a generic feature, independent of perf so that others may also benefit. The IRQ context callback is generated through self-IPIs where possible, or on architectures like powerpc the decrementer (the built-in timer facility) is set to generate an interrupt immediately. Architectures that don't have anything like this get to do with a callback from the timer tick. These architectures can call irq_work_run() at the tail of any IRQ handlers that might enqueue such work (like the perf IRQ handler) to avoid undue latencies in processing the work.

2010-08-20rcu: Add a TINY_PREEMPT_RCUPaul E. McKenney
Implement a small-memory-footprint uniprocessor-only implementation of preemptible RCU. This implementation uses but a single blocked-tasks list rather than the combinatorial number used per leaf rcu_node by TREE_PREEMPT_RCU, which reduces memory consumption and greatly simplifies processing. This version also takes advantage of uniprocessor execution to accelerate grace periods in the case where there are no readers. The general design is otherwise broadly similar to that of TREE_PREEMPT_RCU. This implementation is a step towards having RCU implementation driven off of the SMP and PREEMPT kernel configuration variables, which can happen once this implementation has accumulated sufficient experience. Removed ACCESS_ONCE() from __rcu_read_unlock() and added barrier() as suggested by Steve Rostedt in order to avoid the compiler-reordering issue noted by Mathieu Desnoyers (http://lkml.org/lkml/2010/8/16/183). As can be seen below, CONFIG_TINY_PREEMPT_RCU represents almost 5Kbyte savings compared to CONFIG_TREE_PREEMPT_RCU. Of course, for non-real-time workloads, CONFIG_TINY_RCU is even better.
