2012-11-13time: Kill xtime_lock, replacing it with jiffies_lockJohn Stultz
Now that timekeeping is protected by its own locks, rename the xtime_lock to jifffies_lock to better describe what it protects.

2011-09-08clockevents: Make minimum delay adjustments configurableMartin Schwidefsky
The automatic increase of the min_delta_ns of a clockevents device should be done in the clockevents code as the minimum delay is an attribute of the clockevents device. In addition not all architectures want the automatic adjustment, on a massively virtualized system it can happen that the programming of a clock event fails several times in a row because the virtual cpu has been rescheduled quickly enough. In that case the minimum delay will erroneously be increased with no way back. The new config symbol GENERIC_CLOCKEVENTS_MIN_ADJUST is used to enable the automatic adjustment. The config option is selected only for x86.

2011-02-26clockevents: Prevent oneshot mode when broadcast device is periodicThomas Gleixner
When the per cpu timer is marked CLOCK_EVT_FEAT_C3STOP, then we only can switch into oneshot mode, when the backup broadcast device supports oneshot mode as well. Otherwise we would try to switch the broadcast device into an unsupported mode unconditionally. This went unnoticed so far as the current available broadcast devices support oneshot mode. Seth unearthed this problem while debugging and working around an hpet related BIOS wreckage. Add the necessary check to tick_is_oneshot_available().

2008-10-17NOHZ: restart tick device from irq_enter()Thomas Gleixner
We did not restart the tick device from irq_enter() to avoid double reprogramming and extra events in the return immediate to idle case. But long lasting softirqs can lead to a situation where jiffies become stale: idle() tick stopped (reprogrammed to next pending timer) halt() interrupt jiffies updated from irq_enter() interrupt handler softirq function 1 runs 20ms softirq function 2 arms a 10ms timer with a stale jiffies value jiffies updated from irq_exit() timer wheel has now an already expired timer (the one added in function 2) timer fires and timer softirq runs This was discovered when debugging a timer problem which happend only when the ath5k driver is active. The debugging proved that there is a softirq function running for more than 20ms, which is a bug by itself. To solve this we restart the tick timer right from irq_enter(), but do not go through the other functions which are necessary to return from idle when need_resched() is set.

2008-09-23clockevents: prevent mode mismatch on cpu onlineThomas Gleixner
Impact: timer hang on CPU online observed on AMD C1E systems When a CPU is brought online then the broadcast machinery can be in the one shot state already. Check this and setup the timer device of the new CPU in one shot mode so the broadcast code can pick up the next_event value correctly. Another AMD C1E oddity, as we switch to broadcast immediately and not after the full bring up via the ACPI cpu idle code. Signed-off-by: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de>
2008-09-23clockevents: prevent cpu online to interfere with nohzThomas Gleixner
Impact: rare hang which can be triggered on CPU online. tick_do_timer_cpu keeps track of the CPU which updates jiffies via do_timer. The value -1 is used to signal, that currently no CPU is doing this. There are two cases, where the variable can have this state: boot: necessary for systems where the boot cpu id can be != 0 nohz long idle sleep: When the CPU which did the jiffies update last goes into a long idle sleep it drops the update jiffies duty so another CPU which is not idle can pick it up and keep jiffies going. Using the same value for both situations is wrong, as the CPU online code can see the -1 state when the timer of the newly onlined CPU is setup. The setup for a newly onlined CPU goes through periodic mode and can pick up the do_timer duty without being aware of the nohz / highres mode of the already running system. Use two separate states and make them constants to avoid magic numbers confusion. Signed-off-by: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de>
2008-09-16clockevents: make device shutdown robustThomas Gleixner
The device shut down does not cleanup the next_event variable of the clock event device. So when the device is reactivated the possible stale next_event value can prevent the device to be reprogrammed as it claims to wait on a event already. This is the root cause of the resurfacing suspend/resume problem, where systems need key press to come back to life. Fix this by setting next_event to KTIME_MAX when the device is shut down. Use a separate function for shutdown which takes care of that and only keep the direct set mode call in the broadcast code, where we can not touch the next_event value.

2008-09-05clockevents: prevent endless loop lockupThomas Gleixner
The C1E/HPET bug reports on AMDX2/RS690 systems where tracked down to a too small value of the HPET minumum delta for programming an event. The clockevents code needs to enforce an interrupt event on the clock event device in some cases. The enforcement code was stupid and naive, as it just added the minimum delta to the current time and tried to reprogram the device. When the minimum delta is too small, then this loops forever. Add a sanity check. Allow reprogramming to fail 3 times, then print a warning and double the minimum delta value to make sure, that this does not happen again. Use the same function for both tick-oneshot and tick-broadcast code. Signed-off-by: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de> Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>

2007-05-08highres/dyntick: prevent xtime lock contentionThomas Gleixner
While the !highres/!dyntick code assigns the duty of the do_timer() call to one specific CPU, this was dropped in the highres/dyntick part during development. Steven Rostedt discovered the xtime lock contention on highres/dyntick due to several CPUs trying to update jiffies. Add the single CPU assignement back. In the dyntick case this needs to be handled carefully, as the CPU which has the do_timer() duty must drop the assignement and let it be grabbed by another CPU, which is active. Otherwise the do_timer() calls would not happen during the long sleep.

2007-03-16[PATCH] clockevents: Fix suspend/resume to disk hangsThomas Gleixner
I finally found a dual core box, which survives suspend/resume without crashing in the middle of nowhere. Sigh, I never figured out from the code and the bug reports what's going on. The observed hangs are caused by a stale state transition of the clock event devices, which keeps the RCU synchronization away from completion, when the non boot CPU is brought back up. The suspend/resume in oneshot mode needs the similar care as the periodic mode during suspend to RAM. My assumption that the state transitions during the different shutdown/bringups of s2disk would go through the periodic boot phase and then switch over to highres resp. nohz mode were simply wrong. Add the appropriate suspend / resume handling for the non periodic modes. Signed-off-by: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2007-03-06[PATCH] Save/restore periodic tick information over suspend/resumeThomas Gleixner
The programming of periodic tick devices needs to be saved/restored across suspend/resume - otherwise we might end up with a system coming up that relies on getting a PIT (or HPET) interrupt, while those devices default to 'no interrupts' after powerup. (To confuse things it worked to a certain degree on some systems because the lapic gets initialized as a side-effect of SMP bootup.) This suspend / resume thing was dropped unintentionally during the last-minute -mm code reshuffling.

2007-02-16[PATCH] tick-management: broadcast functionalityThomas Gleixner
With Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Add broadcast functionality, so per cpu clock event devices can be registered as dummy devices or switched from/to broadcast on demand. The broadcast function distributes the events via the broadcast function of the clock event device. This is primarily designed to replace the switch apic timer to / from IPI in power states, where the apic stops.
