2007-07-21Fix swiotlb_sync_single_range()Keir Fraser
If the swiotlb maps a multi-slab region, swiotlb_sync_single_range() can be invoked to sync a sub-region which does not include the first slab. Unfortunately io_tlb_orig_addr[] is only initialised for the first slab, and hence the call to sync_single() will read a garbage orig_addr in this case. This patch fixes the issue by initialising all mapped slabs in io_tlb_orig_addr[]. It also correctly adjusts the buffer pointer in sync_single() to handle the case that the given dma_addr is not aligned on a slab boundary.

Slab destructors were no longer supported after Christoph's c59def9f222d44bb7e2f0a559f2906191a0862d7 change. They've been BUGs for both slab and slub, and slob never supported them either.

2007-07-19lockstat: core infrastructurePeter Zijlstra
Introduce the core lock statistics code. Lock statistics provides lock wait-time and hold-time (as well as the count of corresponding contention and acquisitions events). Also, the first few call-sites that encounter contention are tracked. Lock wait-time is the time spent waiting on the lock. This provides insight into the locking scheme, that is, a heavily contended lock is indicative of a too coarse locking scheme. Lock hold-time is the duration the lock was held, this provides a reference for the wait-time numbers, so they can be put into perspective. 1) lock 2) ... do stuff .. unlock 3) The time between 1 and 2 is the wait-time. The time between 2 and 3 is the hold-time. The lockdep held-lock tracking code is reused, because it already collects locks into meaningful groups (classes), and because it is an existing infrastructure for lock instrumentation. Currently lockdep tracks lock acquisition with two hooks: lock() lock_acquire() _lock() ... code protected by lock ... unlock() lock_release() _unlock() We need to extend this with two more hooks, in order to measure contention. lock_contended() - used to measure contention events lock_acquired() - completion of the contention These are then placed the following way: lock() lock_acquire() if (!_try_lock()) lock_contended() _lock() lock_acquired() ... do locked stuff ... unlock() lock_release() _unlock() (Note: the try_lock() 'trick' is used to avoid instrumenting all platform dependent lock primitive implementations.) It is also possible to toggle the two lockdep features at runtime using: /proc/sys/kernel/prove_locking /proc/sys/kernel/lock_stat (esp. turning off the O(n^2) prove_locking functionaliy can help) [akpm@linux-foundation.org: build fixes] [akpm@linux-foundation.org: nuke unneeded ifdefs] Signed-off-by: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Acked-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Acked-by: Jason Baron <jbaron@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

2007-07-16vsprintf.c: optimizing, part 2: base 10 conversion speedup, v2Denis Vlasenko
Optimize integer-to-string conversion in vsprintf.c for base 10. This is by far the most used conversion, and in some use cases it impacts performance. For example, top reads /proc/$PID/stat for every process, and with 4000 processes decimal conversion alone takes noticeable time. Using code from http://www.cs.uiowa.edu/~jones/bcd/decimal.html (with permission from the author, Douglas W. Jones) binary-to-decimal-string conversion is done in groups of five digits at once, using only additions/subtractions/shifts (with -O2; -Os throws in some multiply instructions). On i386 arch gcc 4.1.2 -O2 generates ~500 bytes of code. This patch is run tested. Userspace benchmark/test is also attached. I tested it on PIII and AMD64 and new code is generally ~2.5 times faster. On AMD64: # ./vsprintf_verify-O2 Original decimal conv: .......... 151 ns per iteration Patched decimal conv: .......... 62 ns per iteration Testing correctness 12895992590592 ok... [Ctrl-C] # ./vsprintf_verify-O2 Original decimal conv: .......... 151 ns per iteration Patched decimal conv: .......... 62 ns per iteration Testing correctness 26025406464 ok... [Ctrl-C] More realistic test: top from busybox project was modified to report how many us it took to scan /proc (this does not account any processing done after that, like sorting process list), and then I test it with 4000 processes: #!/bin/sh i=4000 while test $i != 0; do sleep 30 & let i-- done busybox top -b -n3 >/dev/null on unpatched kernel: top: 4120 processes took 102864 microseconds to scan top: 4120 processes took 91757 microseconds to scan top: 4120 processes took 92517 microseconds to scan top: 4120 processes took 92581 microseconds to scan on patched kernel: top: 4120 processes took 75460 microseconds to scan top: 4120 processes took 66451 microseconds to scan top: 4120 processes took 67267 microseconds to scan top: 4120 processes took 67618 microseconds to scan The speedup comes from much faster generation of /proc/PID/stat by sprintf() calls inside the kernel.

2007-07-16vsprintf.c: optimizing, part 1 (easy and obvious stuff)Denis Vlasenko
* There is no point in having full "0...9a...z" constant vector, if we use only "0...9a...f" (and "x" for "0x"). * Post-decrement usually needs a few more instructions, so use pre decrement instead where makes sense: -       while (i < precision--) { +       while (i <= --precision) { * if base != 10 (=> base 8 or 16), we can avoid using division in a loop and use mask/shift, obtaining much faster conversion. (More complex optimization for base 10 case is in the second patch). Overall, size vsprintf.o shows ~80 bytes smaller text section with this patch applied.

2007-07-16generic bug: use show_regs() instead of dump_stack()Heiko Carstens
The current generic bug implementation has a call to dump_stack() in case a WARN_ON(whatever) gets hit. Since report_bug(), which calls dump_stack(), gets called from an exception handler we can do better: just pass the pt_regs structure to report_bug() and pass it to show_regs() in case of a warning. This will give more debug informations like register contents, etc... In addition this avoids some pointless lines that dump_stack() emits, since it includes a stack backtrace of the exception handler which is of no interest in case of a warning. E.g. on s390 the following lines are currently always present in a stack backtrace if dump_stack() gets called from report_bug(): [<000000000001517a>] show_trace+0x92/0xe8) [<0000000000015270>] show_stack+0xa0/0xd0 [<00000000000152ce>] dump_stack+0x2e/0x3c [<0000000000195450>] report_bug+0x98/0xf8 [<0000000000016cc8>] illegal_op+0x1fc/0x21c [<00000000000227d6>] sysc_return+0x0/0x10 Acked-by: Jeremy Fitzhardinge <jeremy@goop.org> Acked-by: Haavard Skinnemoen <hskinnemoen@atmel.com> Cc: Andi Kleen <ak@suse.de> Cc: Kyle McMartin <kyle@parisc-linux.org> Cc: Paul Mackerras <paulus@samba.org> Cc: Paul Mundt <lethal@linux-sh.org> Cc: Martin Schwidefsky <schwidefsky@de.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Heiko Carstens <heiko.carstens@de.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

2007-07-16percpu_counters(): use cpu notifiersAndrew Morton
per-cpu counters presently must iterate over all possible CPUs in the exhaustive percpu_counter_sum(). But it can be much better to only iterate over the presently-online CPUs. To do this, we must arrange for an offlined CPU's count to be spilled into the counter's central count. We can do this for all percpu_counters in the machine by linking them into a single global list and walking that list at CPU_DEAD time. (I hope. Might have race windows in which the percpu_counter_sum() count is inaccurate?)

2007-07-16lib: add idr_for_each()Kristian Hoegsberg
This patch adds an iterator function for the idr data structure. Compared to just iterating through the idr with an integer and idr_find, this iterator is (almost, but not quite) linear in the number of elements, as opposed to the number of integers in the range covered by the idr. This makes a difference for sparse idrs, but more importantly, it's a nicer way to iterate through the elements. The drm subsystem is moving to idr for tracking contexts and drawables, and with this change, we can use the idr exclusively for tracking these resources.

2007-07-11ida: implement idr based id allocatorTejun Heo
Implement idr based id allocator. ida is used the same way idr is used but lacks id -> ptr translation and thus consumes much less memory. struct ida_bitmap is attached as leaf nodes to idr tree which is managed by the idr code. Each ida_bitmap is 128bytes long and contains slightly less than a thousand slots. ida is more aggressive with releasing extra resources acquired using ida_pre_get(). After every successful id allocation, ida frees one reserved idr_layer if possible. Reserved ida_bitmap is not freed automatically but only one ida_bitmap is reserved and it's almost always used right away. Under most circumstances, ida won't hold on to memory for too long which isn't actively used. Signed-off-by: Tejun Heo <htejun@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@suse.de>

2007-07-11idr: fix obscure bug in allocation pathTejun Heo
In sub_alloc(), when bitmap search fails, it goes up one level to continue search. This is done by updating the id cursor and searching the upper level again. If the cursor was at the end of the upper level, we need to go further than that. This wasn't implemented and when that happens the part of the cursor which indexes into the upper level wraps and sub_alloc() ends up searching the wrong bitmap. It allocates id which doesn't match the actual slot. This patch fixes this by restarting from the top if the search needs to go higher than one level.

Nitin and myself have merged the best parts of the various patches to form this version which we're both happy with (and are jointly signing off). The performance of this version is equivalent to the original minilzo code it was based on. Bytecode comparisons have also been made on ARM, i386 and x86_64 with favourable results. There are several users of LZO lined up including jffs2, crypto and reiser4 since its much faster than zlib.

2007-06-08hexdump: more output formattingRandy Dunlap
Add a prefix string parameter. Callers are responsible for any string length/alignment that they want to see in the output. I.e., callers should pad strings to achieve alignment if they want that. Add rowsize parameter. This is the number of raw data bytes to be printed per line. Must be 16 or 32. Add a groupsize parameter. This allows callers to dump values as 1-byte, 2-byte, 4-byte, or 8-byte numbers. Default is 1-byte numbers. If the total length is not an even multiple of groupsize, 1-byte numbers are printed. Add an "ascii" output parameter. This causes ASCII data output following the hex data output. Clean up some doc examples. Align the ASCII output on all lines that are produced by one call. Add a new interface, print_hex_dump_bytes(), that is a shortcut to print_hex_dump(), using default parameter values to print 16 bytes in byte-size chunks of hex + ASCII output, using printk level KERN_DEBUG.

2007-05-23prohibit rcutorture from being compiled into the kernelPaul E. McKenney
There have been a number of instances where people have accidentally compiled rcutorture into the kernel (CONFIG_RCU_TORTURE_TEST=y), which has never been useful, and has often resulted in great frustration. The attached patch prohibits rcutorture from being compiled into the kernel. It may be excluded altogether or compiled as a module. People wishing to have rcutorture hammer their machine immediately upon boot are free to hand-edit lib/Kconfig.debug to remove the "depends on m" line.

2007-05-21Detach sched.h from mm.hAlexey Dobriyan
First thing mm.h does is including sched.h solely for can_do_mlock() inline function which has "current" dereference inside. By dealing with can_do_mlock() mm.h can be detached from sched.h which is good. See below, why. This patch a) removes unconditional inclusion of sched.h from mm.h b) makes can_do_mlock() normal function in mm/mlock.c c) exports can_do_mlock() to not break compilation d) adds sched.h inclusions back to files that were getting it indirectly. e) adds less bloated headers to some files (asm/signal.h, jiffies.h) that were getting them indirectly Net result is: a) mm.h users would get less code to open, read, preprocess, parse, ... if they don't need sched.h b) sched.h stops being dependency for significant number of files: on x86_64 allmodconfig touching sched.h results in recompile of 4083 files, after patch it's only 3744 (-8.3%). Cross-compile tested on all arm defconfigs, all mips defconfigs, all powerpc defconfigs, alpha alpha-up arm i386 i386-up i386-defconfig i386-allnoconfig ia64 ia64-up m68k mips parisc parisc-up powerpc powerpc-up s390 s390-up sparc sparc-up sparc64 sparc64-up um-x86_64 x86_64 x86_64-up x86_64-defconfig x86_64-allnoconfig as well as my two usual configs.

2007-05-11lib/hexdumpRandy Dunlap
Based on ace_dump_mem() from Grant Likely for the Xilinx SystemACE CompactFlash interface. Add print_hex_dump() & hex_dumper() to lib/hexdump.c and linux/kernel.h. This patch adds the functions print_hex_dump() & hex_dumper(). print_hex_dump() can be used to perform a hex + ASCII dump of data to syslog, in an easily viewable format, thus providing a common text hex dump format. hex_dumper() provides a dump-to-memory function. It converts one "line" of output (16 bytes of input) at a time. Example usages: print_hex_dump(KERN_DEBUG, DUMP_PREFIX_ADDRESS, frame->data, frame->len); hex_dumper(frame->data, frame->len, linebuf, sizeof(linebuf)); Example output using %DUMP_PREFIX_OFFSET: 0009ab42: 40414243 44454647 48494a4b 4c4d4e4f-@ABCDEFG HIJKLMNO Example output using %DUMP_PREFIX_ADDRESS: ffffffff88089af0: 70717273 74757677 78797a7b 7c7d7e7f-pqrstuvw xyz{|}~.

2007-05-11[PATCH] audit signal recipientsAmy Griffis
When auditing syscalls that send signals, log the pid and security context for each target process. Optimize the data collection by adding a counter for signal-related rules, and avoiding allocating an aux struct unless we have more than one target process. For process groups, collect pid/context data in blocks of 16. Move the audit_signal_info() hook up in check_kill_permission() so we audit attempts where permission is denied.
