2006-10-05IRQ: Maintain regs pointer globally rather than passing to IRQ handlersDavid Howells
Maintain a per-CPU global "struct pt_regs *" variable which can be used instead of passing regs around manually through all ~1800 interrupt handlers in the Linux kernel. The regs pointer is used in few places, but it potentially costs both stack space and code to pass it around. On the FRV arch, removing the regs parameter from all the genirq function results in a 20% speed up of the IRQ exit path (ie: from leaving timer_interrupt() to leaving do_IRQ()). Where appropriate, an arch may override the generic storage facility and do something different with the variable. On FRV, for instance, the address is maintained in GR28 at all times inside the kernel as part of general exception handling. Having looked over the code, it appears that the parameter may be handed down through up to twenty or so layers of functions. Consider a USB character device attached to a USB hub, attached to a USB controller that posts its interrupts through a cascaded auxiliary interrupt controller. A character device driver may want to pass regs to the sysrq handler through the input layer which adds another few layers of parameter passing. I've build this code with allyesconfig for x86_64 and i386. I've runtested the main part of the code on FRV and i386, though I can't test most of the drivers. I've also done partial conversion for powerpc and MIPS - these at least compile with minimal configurations. This will affect all archs. Mostly the changes should be relatively easy. Take do_IRQ(), store the regs pointer at the beginning, saving the old one: struct pt_regs *old_regs = set_irq_regs(regs); And put the old one back at the end: set_irq_regs(old_regs); Don't pass regs through to generic_handle_irq() or __do_IRQ(). In timer_interrupt(), this sort of change will be necessary: - update_process_times(user_mode(regs)); - profile_tick(CPU_PROFILING, regs); + update_process_times(user_mode(get_irq_regs())); + profile_tick(CPU_PROFILING); I'd like to move update_process_times()'s use of get_irq_regs() into itself, except that i386, alone of the archs, uses something other than user_mode(). Some notes on the interrupt handling in the drivers: (*) input_dev() is now gone entirely. The regs pointer is no longer stored in the input_dev struct. (*) finish_unlinks() in drivers/usb/host/ohci-q.c needs checking. It does something different depending on whether it's been supplied with a regs pointer or not. (*) Various IRQ handler function pointers have been moved to type irq_handler_t.

2006-10-04[PATCH] rcu: simplify/improve batch tuningOleg Nesterov
Kill a hard-to-calculate 'rsinterval' boot parameter and per-cpu rcu_data.last_rs_qlen. Instead, it adds adds a flag rcu_ctrlblk.signaled, which records the fact that one of CPUs has sent a resched IPI since the last rcu_start_batch(). Roughly speaking, we need two rcu_start_batch()s in order to move callbacks from ->nxtlist to ->donelist. This means that when ->qlen exceeds qhimark and continues to grow, we should send a resched IPI, and then do it again after we gone through a quiescent state. On the other hand, if it was already sent, we don't need to do it again when another CPU detects overflow of the queue. Signed-off-by: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@tv-sign.ru> Acked-by: Paul E.

2006-10-04[PATCH] rcu: Fix sign bug making rcu_random always return the same sequenceJosh Triplett
rcu_random uses a counter rrs_count to occasionally mix data from get_random_bytes into the state of its pseudorandom generator. However, the rrs_counter gets declared as an unsigned long, and rcu_random checks for --rrs_count < 0, so this code will never mix any real random data into the state, and will thus always return the same sequence of random numbers. Also, change the return value of rcu_random from long to unsigned long, to avoid potential issues caused by the use of the % operator, which can return negative values for negative left operands.

2006-10-04[PATCH] SRCU: report out-of-memory errorsAlan Stern
Currently the init_srcu_struct() routine has no way to report out-of-memory errors. This patch (as761) makes it return -ENOMEM when the per-cpu data allocation fails. The patch also makes srcu_init_notifier_head() report a BUG if a notifier head can't be initialized. Perhaps it should return -ENOMEM instead, but in the most likely cases where this might occur I don't think any recovery is possible. Notifier chains generally are not created dynamically.

2006-10-04[PATCH] Add SRCU-based notifier chainsAlan Stern
This patch (as751) adds a new type of notifier chain, based on the SRCU (Sleepable Read-Copy Update) primitives recently added to the kernel. An SRCU notifier chain is much like a blocking notifier chain, in that it must be called in process context and its callout routines are allowed to sleep. The difference is that the chain's links are protected by the SRCU mechanism rather than by an rw-semaphore, so calling the chain has extremely low overhead: no memory barriers and no cache-line bouncing. On the other hand, unregistering from the chain is expensive and the chain head requires special runtime initialization (plus cleanup if it is to be deallocated). SRCU notifiers are appropriate for notifiers that will be called very frequently and for which unregistration occurs very seldom. The proposed "task notifier" scheme qualifies, as may some of the network notifiers. Signed-off-by: Alan Stern <stern@rowland.harvard.edu> Acked-by: Paul E.

2006-10-04[PATCH] srcu-3: RCU variant permitting read-side blockingPaul E. McKenney
Updated patch adding a variant of RCU that permits sleeping in read-side critical sections. SRCU is as follows: o Each use of SRCU creates its own srcu_struct, and each srcu_struct has its own set of grace periods. This is critical, as it prevents one subsystem with a blocking reader from holding up SRCU grace periods for other subsystems. o The SRCU primitives (srcu_read_lock(), srcu_read_unlock(), and synchronize_srcu()) all take a pointer to a srcu_struct. o The SRCU primitives must be called from process context. o srcu_read_lock() returns an int that must be passed to the matching srcu_read_unlock(). Realtime RCU avoids the need for this by storing the state in the task struct, but SRCU needs to allow a given code path to pass through multiple SRCU domains -- storing state in the task struct would therefore require either arbitrary space in the task struct or arbitrary limits on SRCU nesting. So I kicked the state-storage problem up to the caller. Of course, it is not permitted to call synchronize_srcu() while in an SRCU read-side critical section. o There is no call_srcu(). It would not be hard to implement one, but it seems like too easy a way to OOM the system. (Hey, we have enough trouble with call_rcu(), which does -not- permit readers to sleep!!!)

2006-10-04[PATCH] msi: simplify msi sanity checks by adding with generic irq codeEric W. Biederman
Currently msi.c is doing sanity checks that make certain before an irq is destroyed it has no more users. By adding irq_has_action I can perform the test is a generic way, instead of relying on a msi specific data structure. By performing the core check in dynamic_irq_cleanup I ensure every user of dynamic irqs has a test present and we don't free resources that are in use. In msi.c this allows me to kill the attrib.state member of msi_desc and all of the assciated code to maintain it. To keep from freeing data structures when irq cleanup code is called to soon changing dyanamic_irq_cleanup is insufficient because there are msi specific data structures that are also not safe to free.

2006-10-04[PATCH] genirq: irq: add a dynamic irq creation APIEric W. Biederman
With the msi support comes a new concept in irq handling, irqs that are created dynamically at run time. Currently the msi code allocates irqs backwards. First it allocates a platform dependent routing value for an interrupt the ``vector'' and then it figures out from the vector which irq you are on. This msi backwards allocator suffers from two basic problems. The allocator suffers because it is trying to do something that is architecture specific in a generic way making it brittle, inflexible, and tied to tightly to the architecture implementation. The alloctor also suffers from it's very backwards nature as it has tied things together that should have no dependencies. To solve the basic dynamic irq allocation problem two new architecture specific functions are added: create_irq and destroy_irq. create_irq takes no input and returns an unused irq number, that won't be reused until it is returned to the free poll with destroy_irq. The irq then can be used for any purpose although the only initial consumer is the msi code. destroy_irq takes an irq number allocated with create_irq and returns it to the free pool. Making this functionality per architecture increases the simplicity of the irq allocation code and increases it's flexibility. dynamic_irq_init() and dynamic_irq_cleanup() are added to automate the irq_desc initializtion that should happen for dynamic irqs.

2006-10-04[PATCH] genirq: irq: add moved_masked_irqEric W. Biederman
Currently move_native_irq disables and renables the irq we are migrating to ensure we don't take that irq when we are actually doing the migration operation. Disabling the irq needs to happen but sometimes doing the work is move_native_irq is too late. On x86 with ioapics the irq move sequences needs to be: edge_triggered: mask irq. move irq. unmask irq. ack irq. level_triggered: mask irq. ack irq. move irq. unmask irq. We can easily perform the edge triggered sequence, with the current defintion of move_native_irq. However the level triggered case does not map well. For that I have added move_masked_irq, to allow me to disable the irqs around both the ack and the move. Q: Why have we not seen this problem earlier? A: The only symptom I have been able to reproduce is that if we change the vector before acknowleding an irq the wrong irq is acknowledged. Since we currently are not reprogramming the irq vector during migration no problems show up. We have to mask the irq before we acknowledge the irq or else we could hit a window where an irq is asserted just before we acknowledge it. Edge triggered irqs do not have this problem because acknowledgements do not propogate in the same way. Signed-off-by: Eric W.

2006-10-04[PATCH] genirq: irq: convert the move_irq flag from a 32bit word to a single bitEric W. Biederman
The primary aim of this patchset is to remove maintenances problems caused by the irq infrastructure. The two big issues I address are an artificially small cap on the number of irqs, and that MSI assumes vector == irq. My primary focus is on x86_64 but I have touched other architectures where necessary to keep them from breaking. - To increase the number of irqs I modify the code to look at the (cpu, vector) pair instead of just looking at the vector. With a large number of irqs available systems with a large irq count no longer need to compress their irq numbers to fit. Removing a lot of brittle special cases. For acpi guys the result is that irq == gsi. - Addressing the fact that MSI assumes irq == vector takes a few more patches. But suffice it to say when I am done none of the generic irq code even knows what a vector is. In quick testing on a large Unisys x86_64 machine we stumbled over at least one driver that assumed that NR_IRQS could always fit into an 8 bit number. This driver is clearly buggy today. But this has become a class of bugs that it is now much easier to hit. This patch: This is a minor space optimization. In practice I don't think this has any affect because of our alignment constraints and the other fields but there is not point in chewing up an uncessary word and since we already read the flag field this should improve the cache hit ratio of the irq handler.

2006-10-03[PATCH] sched: force /sbin/init off isolated cpusNick Piggin
Force /sbin/init off isolated cpus (unless every CPU is specified as an isolcpu). Users seem to think that the isolated CPUs shouldn't have much running on them to begin with. That's fair enough: intuitive, I guess. It also means that the cpu affinity masks of tasks will not include isolcpus by default, which is also more intuitive, perhaps. /sbin/init is spawned from the boot CPU's idle thread, and /sbin/init starts the rest of userspace. So if the boot CPU is specified to be an isolcpu, then prior to this patch, all of userspace will be run there. (throw in a couple of plausible devinit -> cpuinit conversions I spotted while we're here).

2006-10-03[PATCH] Create kallsyms_lookup_size_offset()Franck Bui-Huu
Some uses of kallsyms_lookup() do not need to find out the name of a symbol and its module's name it belongs. This is specially true in arch specific code, which needs to unwind the stack to show the back trace during oops (mips is an example). In this specific case, we just need to retreive the function's size and the offset of the active intruction inside it. Adds a new entry "kallsyms_lookup_size_offset()" This new entry does exactly the same as kallsyms_lookup() but does not require any buffers to store any names. It returns 0 if it fails otherwise 1.

2006-10-02[PATCH] BLOCK: Revert patch to hack around undeclared sigset_t in linux/compat.hDavid Howells
Revert Andrew Morton's patch to temporarily hack around the lack of a declaration of sigset_t in linux/compat.h to make the block-disablement patches build on IA64. This got accidentally pushed to Linus and should be fixed in a different manner. Also make linux/compat.h #include asm/signal.h to gain a definition of sigset_t so that it can externally declare sigset_from_compat(). This has been compile-tested for i386, x86_64, ia64, mips, mips64, frv, ppc and ppc64 and run-tested on frv.

2006-10-02[PATCH] replace cad_pid by a struct pidCedric Le Goater
There are a few places in the kernel where the init task is signaled. The ctrl+alt+del sequence is one them. It kills a task, usually init, using a cached pid (cad_pid). This patch replaces the pid_t by a struct pid to avoid pid wrap around problem. The struct pid is initialized at boot time in init() and can be modified through systctl with /proc/sys/kernel/cad_pid [ I haven't found any distro using it ? ] It also introduces a small helper routine kill_cad_pid() which is used where it seemed ok to use cad_pid instead of pid 1.

2006-10-02[PATCH] introduce get_task_pid() to fix unsafe get_pid()Oleg Nesterov
proc_pid_make_inode: ei->pid = get_pid(task_pid(task)); I think this is not safe. get_pid() can be preempted after checking "pid != NULL". Then the task exits, does detach_pid(), and RCU frees the pid. Signed-off-by: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@tv-sign.ru> Cc: "Eric W.

2006-10-02[PATCH] introduce kernel_execveArnd Bergmann
The use of execve() in the kernel is dubious, since it relies on the __KERNEL_SYSCALLS__ mechanism that stores the result in a global errno variable. As a first step of getting rid of this, change all users to a global kernel_execve function that returns a proper error code. This function is a terrible hack, and a later patch removes it again after the kernel syscalls are gone.

2006-10-02[PATCH] nsproxy cloning error path fixPavel
This patch fixes copy_namespaces()'s error path. when new nsproxy (new_ns) is created pointers to namespaces (ipc, uts) are copied from the old nsproxy. Later in copy_utsname, copy_ipcs, etc. according namespaces are get-ed. On error path needed namespaces are put-ed, so there's no need to put new nsproxy itelf as it woud cause putting namespaces for the second time. Found when incorporating namespaces into OpenVZ kernel.
