2008-07-24mm: add a basic debugging framework for memory initialisationMel Gorman
Boot initialisation is very complex, with significant numbers of architecture-specific routines, hooks and code ordering. While significant amounts of the initialisation is architecture-independent, it trusts the data received from the architecture layer. This is a mistake, and has resulted in a number of difficult-to-diagnose bugs. This patchset adds some validation and tracing to memory initialisation. It also introduces a few basic defensive measures. The validation code can be explicitly disabled for embedded systems. This patch: Add additional debugging and verification code for memory initialisation. Once enabled, the verification checks are always run and when required additional debugging information may be outputted via a mminit_loglevel= command-line parameter. The verification code is placed in a new file mm/mm_init.c. Ideally other mm initialisation code will be moved here over time.

2008-07-23sg: reimplement sg mapping iteratorTejun Heo
This is alternative implementation of sg content iterator introduced by commit 83e7d317... from Pierre Ossman in next-20080716. As there's already an sg iterator which iterates over sg entries themselves, name this sg_mapping_iterator. Slightly edited description from the original implementation follows. Iteration over a sg list is not that trivial when you take into account that memory pages might have to be mapped before being used. Unfortunately, that means that some parts of the kernel restrict themselves to directly accesible memory just to not have to deal with the mess. This patch adds a simple iterator system that allows any code to easily traverse an sg list and not have to deal with all the details. The user can decide to consume part of the iteration. Also, iteration can be stopped and resumed later if releasing the kmap between iteration steps is necessary. These features are useful to implement piecemeal sg copying for interrupt drive PIO for example. Signed-off-by: Tejun Heo <> Signed-off-by: Pierre Ossman <>

2008-07-17ftrace: do not trace library functionsIngo Molnar
make function tracing more robust: do not trace library functions. We've already got a sizable list of exceptions: ifdef CONFIG_FTRACE # Do not profile string.o, since it may be used in early boot or vdso CFLAGS_REMOVE_string.o = -pg # Also do not profile any debug utilities CFLAGS_REMOVE_spinlock_debug.o = -pg CFLAGS_REMOVE_list_debug.o = -pg CFLAGS_REMOVE_debugobjects.o = -pg CFLAGS_REMOVE_find_next_bit.o = -pg CFLAGS_REMOVE_cpumask.o = -pg CFLAGS_REMOVE_bitmap.o = -pg endif ... and the pattern has been that random library functionality showed up in ftrace's critical path (outside of its recursion check), causing hard to debug lockups. So be a bit defensive about it and exclude all lib/*.o functions by default. It's not that they are overly interesting for tracing purposes anyway. Specific ones can still be traced, in an opt-in manner. Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <>

2008-07-06vsprintf: add support for '%pS' and '%pF' pointer formatsLinus Torvalds
They print out a pointer in symbolic format, if possible (ie using symbolic KALLSYMS information). The '%pS' format is for regular direct pointers (which can point to data or code and that you find on the stack during backtraces etc), while '%pF' is for C function pointer types. On most architectures, the two mean exactly the same thing, but some architectures use an indirect pointer for C function pointers, where the function pointer points to a function descriptor (which in turn contains the actual pointer to the code). The '%pF' code automatically does the appropriate function descriptor dereference on such architectures. Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
2008-07-06vsprintf: add infrastructure support for extended '%p' specifiersLinus Torvalds
This expands the kernel '%p' handling with an arbitrary alphanumberic specifier extension string immediately following the '%p'. Right now it's just being ignored, but the next commit will start adding some specific pointer type extensions. NOTE! The reason the extension is appended to the '%p' is to allow minimal gcc type checking: gcc will still see the '%p' and will check that the argument passed in is indeed a pointer, and yet will not complain about the extended information that gcc doesn't understand about (on the other hand, it also won't actually check that the pointer type and the extension are compatible). Alphanumeric characters were chosen because there is no sane existing use for a string format with a hex pointer representation immediately followed by alphanumerics (which is what such a format string would have traditionally resulted in). Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>

2008-06-19rcu: make rcutorture more vicious: reinstate boot-time testingPaul E. McKenney
This patch re-institutes the ability to build rcutorture directly into the Linux kernel. The reason that this capability was removed was that this could result in your kernel being pretty much useless, as rcutorture would be running starting from early boot. This problem has been avoided by (1) making rcutorture run only three seconds of every six by default, (2) adding a CONFIG_RCU_TORTURE_TEST_RUNNABLE that permits rcutorture to be quiesced at boot time, and (3) adding a sysctl in /proc named /proc/sys/kernel/rcutorture_runnable that permits rcutorture to be quiesced and unquiesced when built into the kernel. Please note that this /proc file is -not- available when rcutorture is built as a module. Please also note that to get the earlier take-no-prisoners behavior, you must use the boot command line to set rcutorture's "stutter" parameter to zero. The rcutorture quiescing mechanism is currently quite crude: loops in each rcutorture process that poll a global variable once per tick. Suggestions for improvement are welcome. The default action will be to reduce the polling rate to a few times per second. Signed-off-by: Paul E. McKenney <> Suggested-by: Ingo Molnar <> Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <>
