2006-07-14[PATCH] lockdep: annotate the BLKPG_DEL_PARTITION ioctlArjan van de Ven

2006-06-30[PATCH] Light weight event countersChristoph Lameter
The remaining counters in page_state after the zoned VM counter patches have been applied are all just for show in /proc/vmstat. They have no essential function for the VM. We use a simple increment of per cpu variables. In order to avoid the most severe races we disable preempt. Preempt does not prevent the race between an increment and an interrupt handler incrementing the same statistics counter. However, that race is exceedingly rare, we may only loose one increment or so and there is no requirement (at least not in kernel) that the vm event counters have to be accurate. In the non preempt case this results in a simple increment for each counter. For many architectures this will be reduced by the compiler to a single instruction. This single instruction is atomic for i386 and x86_64. And therefore even the rare race condition in an interrupt is avoided for both architectures in most cases. The patchset also adds an off switch for embedded systems that allows a building of linux kernels without these counters. The implementation of these counters is through inline code that hopefully results in only a single instruction increment instruction being emitted (i386, x86_64) or in the increment being hidden though instruction concurrency (EPIC architectures such as ia64 can get that done). Benefits: - VM event counter operations usually reduce to a single inline instruction on i386 and x86_64. - No interrupt disable, only preempt disable for the preempt case. Preempt disable can also be avoided by moving the counter into a spinlock. - Handling is similar to zoned VM counters. - Simple and easily extendable. - Can be omitted to reduce memory use for embedded use.

This is a collection of patches that greatly improve CFQ performance in some circumstances. - Change the idling logic to only kick in after a request is done and we are deciding what to do. Before the idling included the request service time, so it was hard to adjust. Now it's true think/idle time. - Take advantage of TCQ/NCQ/queueing for seeky sync workloads, but keep it in control for sync and sequential (or close to) workloads. - Expire queues immediately and move on to other busy queues, if we are not going to idle after the current one finishes. - Don't rearm idle timer if there are no busy queues.

2006-06-23[PATCH] cfq-iosched: correctly set ioprio on both targetsJens Axboe
Patch originally from Vasily Tarasov <vtaras@sw.ru> If you set io-priority of process 1 using sys_ioprio_set system call by another process 2 (like ionice do), then cfq_init_prio_data() function sets priority of process 2 (current) on queue of process 1 and clears the flag, that designates change of ioprio. So the process 1 will work like with priority of process 2. I propose not to call cfq_init_prio_data() on io-priority change, but only mark queue as queue with changed prority. Every time when new request comes cfq-scheduler checks for this flag and atomaticaly changes priority of queue to new value. Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <axboe@suse.de>

2006-06-23[PATCH] Kill PF_SYNCWRITE flagJens Axboe
A process flag to indicate whether we are doing sync io is incredibly ugly. It also causes performance problems when one does a lot of async io and then proceeds to sync it. Part of the io will go out as async, and the other part as sync. This causes a disconnect between the previously submitted io and the synced io. For io schedulers such as CFQ, this will cause us lost merges and suboptimal behaviour in scheduling. Remove PF_SYNCWRITE completely from the fsync/msync paths, and let the O_DIRECT path just directly indicate that the writes are sync by using WRITE_SYNC instead.

2006-06-08[PATCH] elevator switching raceJens Axboe
There's a race between shutting down one io scheduler and firing up the next, in which a new io could enter and cause the io scheduler to be invoked with bad or NULL data. To fix this, we need to maintain the queue lock for a bit longer. Unfortunately we cannot do that, since the elevator init requires to be run without the lock held. This isn't easily fixable, without also changing the mempool API. So split the initialization into two parts, and alloc-init operation and an attach operation. Then we can preallocate the io scheduler and related structures, and run the attach inside the lock after we detach the old one. This patch has survived 30 minutes of 1 second io scheduler switching with a very busy io load. Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <axboe@suse.de> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>

2006-05-23[PATCH] blk: fix gendisk->in_flight accounting during barrier sequenceJens Axboe

This caused gendisk->in_flight to be decremented by 1 after each barrier thus messed up statistics. This patch makes bar_rq not accounted as normal IO.

2006-05-12Revert "[BLOCK] Fix oops on removal of SD/MMC card"Linus Torvalds
This reverts commit 56cf6504fc1c0c221b82cebc16a444b684140fb7. Both Erik Mouw and Andrew Vasquez independently pinpointed this commit as causing problems, where the slab cache for a driver is never released (most obviously causing problems when immediately re-loading that driver, resulting in a "kmem_cache_create: duplicate cache <xyz>" message, but it can also cause other trouble). James Bottomley dug into it, and reports: "OK, here's the scoop. The problem patch adds a get of driverfs_dev in add_disk(), but doesn't put it again until disk_release() (which occurs on final put_disk() of the gendisk). However, in SCSI, the driverfs_dev is the sdev_gendev. That means there's a reference held on sdev_gendev until final disk put. Unfortunately, we use the driver model driver_remove to trigger del_gendisk (which removes the gendisk from visibility and decrements the refcount), so we've introduced an unbreakable deadlock in the reference counting with this. I suggest simply reversing this patch at the moment. If Russell and Jens can tell me what they're trying to do I'll see if there's another way to do it." so hereby the patch gets reverted, waiting for a better fix.

2006-05-11[BLOCK] limit request_fn recursionJens Axboe
Don't recurse back into the driver even if the unplug threshold is met, when the driver asks for a requeue. This is both silly from a logical point of view (requeues typically happen due to driver/hardware shortage), and also dangerous since we could hit an endless request_fn -> requeue -> unplug -> request_fn loop and crash on stack overrun. Also limit blk_run_queue() to one level of recursion, similar to how blk_start_queue() works. This patch fixed a real problem with SLES10 and lpfc, and it could hit any SCSI lld that returns non-zero from it's ->queuecommand() handler.

2006-05-05[BLOCK] Fix oops on removal of SD/MMC cardRussell King
The block layer keeps a reference (driverfs_dev) to the struct device associated with the block device, and uses it internally for generating uevents in block_uevent. Block device uevents include umounting the partition, which can occur after the backing device has been removed. Unfortunately, this reference is not counted. This means that if the struct device is removed from the device tree, the block layers reference will become stale. Guard against this by holding a reference to the struct device in add_disk(), and only drop the reference when we're releasing the gendisk kobject - in other words when we can be sure that no further uevents will be generated for this block device.
