2010-08-20mm: fix up some user-visible effects of the stack guard pageLinus Torvalds
commit d7824370e26325c881b665350ce64fb0a4fde24a upstream. This commit makes the stack guard page somewhat less visible to user space. It does this by: - not showing the guard page in /proc/<pid>/maps It looks like lvm-tools will actually read /proc/self/maps to figure out where all its mappings are, and effectively do a specialized "mlockall()" in user space. By not showing the guard page as part of the mapping (by just adding PAGE_SIZE to the start for grows-up pages), lvm-tools ends up not being aware of it. - by also teaching the _real_ mlock() functionality not to try to lock the guard page. That would just expand the mapping down to create a new guard page, so there really is no point in trying to lock it in place. It would perhaps be nice to show the guard page specially in /proc/<pid>/maps (or at least mark grow-down segments some way), but let's not open ourselves up to more breakage by user space from programs that depends on the exact deails of the 'maps' file. Special thanks to Henrique de Moraes Holschuh for diving into lvm-tools source code to see what was going on with the whole new warning.

2010-08-20mm: fix page table unmap for stack guard page properlyLinus Torvalds
commit 11ac552477e32835cb6970bf0a70c210807f5673 upstream. We do in fact need to unmap the page table _before_ doing the whole stack guard page logic, because if it is needed (mainly 32-bit x86 with PAE and CONFIG_HIGHPTE, but other architectures may use it too) then it will do a kmap_atomic/kunmap_atomic. And those kmaps will create an atomic region that we cannot do allocations in. However, the whole stack expand code will need to do anon_vma_prepare() and vma_lock_anon_vma() and they cannot do that in an atomic region. Now, a better model might actually be to do the anon_vma_prepare() when _creating_ a VM_GROWSDOWN segment, and not have to worry about any of this at page fault time. But in the meantime, this is the straightforward fix for the issue. See https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=16588 for details.

2010-08-13mm: keep a guard page below a grow-down stack segmentLinus Torvalds
commit 320b2b8de12698082609ebbc1a17165727f4c893 upstream. This is a rather minimally invasive patch to solve the problem of the user stack growing into a memory mapped area below it. Whenever we fill the first page of the stack segment, expand the segment down by one page. Now, admittedly some odd application might _want_ the stack to grow down into the preceding memory mapping, and so we may at some point need to make this a process tunable (some people might also want to have more than a single page of guarding), but let's try the minimal approach first. Tested with trivial application that maps a single page just below the stack, and then starts recursing. Without this, we will get a SIGSEGV _after_ the stack has smashed the mapping. With this patch, we'll get a nice SIGBUS just as the stack touches the page just above the mapping.

2010-08-13mm: fix corruption of hibernation caused by reusing swap during image savingKAMEZAWA Hiroyuki
commit 966cca029f739716fbcc8068b8c6dfe381f86fc3 upstream. Since 2.6.31, swap_map[]'s refcounting was changed to show that a used swap entry is just for swap-cache, can be reused. Then, while scanning free entry in swap_map[], a swap entry may be able to be reclaimed and reused. It was caused by commit c9e444103b5e7a5 ("mm: reuse unused swap entry if necessary"). But this caused deta corruption at resume. The scenario is - Assume a clean-swap cache, but mapped. - at hibernation_snapshot[], clean-swap-cache is saved as clean-swap-cache and swap_map[] is marked as SWAP_HAS_CACHE. - then, save_image() is called. And reuse SWAP_HAS_CACHE entry to save image, and break the contents. After resume: - the memory reclaim runs and finds clean-not-referenced-swap-cache and discards it because it's marked as clean. But here, the contents on disk and swap-cache is inconsistent. Hance memory is corrupted. This patch avoids the bug by not reclaiming swap-entry during hibernation. This is a quick fix for backporting. Signed-off-by: KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki <kamezawa.hiroyu@jp.fujitsu.com> Cc: Rafael J.

2010-07-30mm: fix ia64 crash when gcore reads gate areaHugh Dickins
Debian's ia64 autobuilders have been seeing kernel freeze or reboot when running the gdb testsuite (Debian bug 588574): dannf bisected to 2.6.32 62eede62dafb4a6633eae7ffbeb34c60dba5e7b1 "mm: ZERO_PAGE without PTE_SPECIAL"; and reproduced it with gdb's gcore on a simple target. I'd missed updating the gate_vma handling in __get_user_pages(): that happens to use vm_normal_page() (nowadays failing on the zero page), yet reported success even when it failed to get a page - boom when access_process_vm() tried to copy that to its intermediate buffer. Fix this, resisting cleanups: in particular, leave it for now reporting success when not asked to get any pages - very probably safe to change, but let's not risk it without testing exposure. Why did ia64 crash with 16kB pages, but succeed with 64kB pages? Because setup_gate() pads each 64kB of its gate area with zero pages.

2010-07-06writeback: simplify the write back thread queueChristoph Hellwig
First remove items from work_list as soon as we start working on them. This means we don't have to track any pending or visited state and can get rid of all the RCU magic freeing the work items - we can simply free them once the operation has finished. Second use a real completion for tracking synchronous requests - if the caller sets the completion pointer we complete it, otherwise use it as a boolean indicator that we can free the work item directly. Third unify struct wb_writeback_args and struct bdi_work into a single data structure, wb_writeback_work. Previous we set all parameters into a struct wb_writeback_args, copied it into struct bdi_work, copied it again on the stack to use it there. Instead of just allocate one structure dynamically or on the stack and use it all the way through the stack.

per_cpu_ptr_to_phys() determines whether the passed in @addr belongs to the first_chunk or not by just matching the address against the address range of the base unit (unit0, used by cpu0). When an adress from another cpu was passed in, it will always determine that the address doesn't belong to the first chunk even when it does.

2010-06-08writeback: limit write_cache_pages integrity scanning to current EOFDave Chinner
sync can currently take a really long time if a concurrent writer is extending a file. The problem is that the dirty pages on the address space grow in the same direction as write_cache_pages scans, so if the writer keeps ahead of writeback, the writeback will not terminate until the writer stops adding dirty pages. For a data integrity sync, we only need to write the pages dirty at the time we start the writeback, so we can stop scanning once we get to the page that was at the end of the file at the time the scan started. This will prevent operations like copying a large file preventing sync from completing as it will not write back pages that were dirtied after the sync was started. This does not impact the existing integrity guarantees, as any dirty page (old or new) within the EOF range at the start of the scan will still be captured. This patch will not prevent sync from blocking on large writes into holes. That requires more complex intervention while this patch only addresses the common append-case of this sync holdoff.

2010-06-08writeback: pay attention to wbc->nr_to_write in write_cache_pagesDave Chinner
If a filesystem writes more than one page in ->writepage, write_cache_pages fails to notice this and continues to attempt writeback when wbc->nr_to_write has gone negative - this trace was captured from XFS: wbc_writeback_start: towrt=1024 wbc_writepage: towrt=1024 wbc_writepage: towrt=0 wbc_writepage: towrt=-1 wbc_writepage: towrt=-5 wbc_writepage: towrt=-21 wbc_writepage: towrt=-85 This has adverse effects on filesystem writeback behaviour. write_cache_pages() needs to terminate after a certain number of pages are written, not after a certain number of calls to ->writepage are made. This is a regression introduced by 17bc6c30cf6bfffd816bdc53682dd46fc34a2cf4 ("vfs: Add no_nrwrite_index_update writeback control flag"), but cannot be reverted directly due to subsequent bug fixes that have gone in on top of it.

2010-06-04fix truncate inode time modification breakageNick Piggin
mtime and ctime should be changed only if the file size has actually changed. Patches changing ext2 and tmpfs from vmtruncate to new truncate sequence has caused regressions where they always update timestamps. There is some strange cases in POSIX where truncate(2) must not update times unless the size has acutally changed, see 6e656be89. This area is all still rather buggy in different ways in a lot of filesystems and needs a cleanup and audit (ideally the vfs will provide a simple attribute or call to direct all filesystems exactly which attributes to change). But coming up with the best solution will take a while and is not appropriate for rc anyway. So fix recent regression for now.

2010-05-27fs: introduce new truncate sequencenpiggin@suse.de
Introduce a new truncate calling sequence into fs/mm subsystems. Rather than setattr > vmtruncate > truncate, have filesystems call their truncate sequence from ->setattr if filesystem specific operations are required. vmtruncate is deprecated, and truncate_pagecache and inode_newsize_ok helpers introduced previously should be used. simple_setattr is introduced for simple in-ram filesystems to implement the new truncate sequence. Eventually all filesystems should be converted to implement a setattr, and the default code in notify_change should go away. simple_setsize is also introduced to perform just the ATTR_SIZE portion of simple_setattr (ie. changing i_size and trimming pagecache). To implement the new truncate sequence: - filesystem specific manipulations (eg freeing blocks) must be done in the setattr method rather than ->truncate. - vmtruncate can not be used by core code to trim blocks past i_size in the event of write failure after allocation, so this must be performed in the fs code. - convert usage of helpers block_write_begin, nobh_write_begin, cont_write_begin, and *blockdev_direct_IO* to use _newtrunc postfixed variants. These avoid calling vmtruncate to trim blocks (see previous). - inode_setattr should not be used. generic_setattr is a new function to be used to copy simple attributes into the generic inode. - make use of the better opportunity to handle errors with the new sequence. Big problem with the previous calling sequence: the filesystem is not called until i_size has already changed. This means it is not allowed to fail the call, and also it does not know what the previous i_size was. Also, generic code calling vmtruncate to truncate allocated blocks in case of error had no good way to return a meaningful error (or, for example, atomically handle block deallocation).

We don't name our generic fsync implementations very well currently. The no-op implementation for in-memory filesystems currently is called simple_sync_file which doesn't make too much sense to start with, the the generic one for simple filesystems is called simple_fsync which can lead to some confusion. This patch renames the generic file fsync method to generic_file_fsync to match the other generic_file_* routines it is supposed to be used with, and the no-op implementation to noop_fsync to make it obvious what to expect.

2010-05-27numa: slab: use numa_mem_id() for slab local memory nodeLee Schermerhorn
Example usage of generic "numa_mem_id()": The mainline slab code, since ~ 2.6.19, does not handle memoryless nodes well. Specifically, the "fast path"--____cache_alloc()--will never succeed as slab doesn't cache offnode object on the per cpu queues, and for memoryless nodes, all memory will be "off node" relative to numa_node_id(). This adds significant overhead to all kmem cache allocations, incurring a significant regression relative to earlier kernels [from before slab.c was reorganized]. This patch uses the generic topology function "numa_mem_id()" to return the "effective local memory node" for the calling context. This is the first node in the local node's generic fallback zonelist-- the same node that "local" mempolicy-based allocations would use. This lets slab cache these "local" allocations and avoid fallback/refill on every allocation. N.B.: Slab will need to handle node and memory hotplug events that could change the value returned by numa_mem_id() for any given node if recent changes to address memory hotplug don't already address this. E.g., flush all per cpu slab queues before rebuilding the zonelists while the "machine" is held in the stopped state.

2010-05-27numa: introduce numa_mem_id()- effective local memory node idLee Schermerhorn
Introduce numa_mem_id(), based on generic percpu variable infrastructure to track "nearest node with memory" for archs that support memoryless nodes. Define API in <linux/topology.h> when CONFIG_HAVE_MEMORYLESS_NODES defined, else stubs. Architectures will define HAVE_MEMORYLESS_NODES if/when they support them. Archs can override definitions of: numa_mem_id() - returns node number of "local memory" node set_numa_mem() - initialize [this cpus'] per cpu variable 'numa_mem' cpu_to_mem() - return numa_mem for specified cpu; may be used as lvalue Generic initialization of 'numa_mem' occurs in __build_all_zonelists(). This will initialize the boot cpu at boot time, and all cpus on change of numa_zonelist_order, or when node or memory hot-plug requires zonelist rebuild. Archs that support memoryless nodes will need to initialize 'numa_mem' for secondary cpus as they're brought on-line.

2010-05-27numa: add generic percpu var numa_node_id() implementationLee Schermerhorn
Rework the generic version of the numa_node_id() function to use the new generic percpu variable infrastructure. Guard the new implementation with a new config option: CONFIG_USE_PERCPU_NUMA_NODE_ID. Archs which support this new implemention will default this option to 'y' when NUMA is configured. This config option could be removed if/when all archs switch over to the generic percpu implementation of numa_node_id(). Arch support involves: 1) converting any existing per cpu variable implementations to use this implementation. x86_64 is an instance of such an arch. 2) archs that don't use a per cpu variable for numa_node_id() will need to initialize the new per cpu variable "numa_node" as cpus are brought on-line. ia64 is an example. 3) Defining USE_PERCPU_NUMA_NODE_ID in arch dependent Kconfig--e.g., when NUMA is configured. This is required because I have retained the old implementation by default to allow archs to be modified incrementally, as desired. Subsequent patches will convert x86_64 and ia64 to use this implemenation.

2010-05-27cpusets: new round-robin rotor for SLAB allocationsJack Steiner
We have observed several workloads running on multi-node systems where memory is assigned unevenly across the nodes in the system. There are numerous reasons for this but one is the round-robin rotor in cpuset_mem_spread_node(). For example, a simple test that writes a multi-page file will allocate pages on nodes 0 2 4 6 ... Odd nodes are skipped. (Sometimes it allocates on odd nodes & skips even nodes). An example is shown below. The program "lfile" writes a file consisting of 10 pages. The program then mmaps the file & uses get_mempolicy(..., MPOL_F_NODE) to determine the nodes where the file pages were allocated. The output is shown below: # ./lfile allocated on nodes: 2 4 6 0 1 2 6 0 2 There is a single rotor that is used for allocating both file pages & slab pages. Writing the file allocates both a data page & a slab page (buffer_head). This advances the RR rotor 2 nodes for each page allocated. A quick confirmation seems to confirm this is the cause of the uneven allocation: # echo 0 >/dev/cpuset/memory_spread_slab # ./lfile allocated on nodes: 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 This patch introduces a second rotor that is used for slab allocations.

2010-05-27memcg: fix mis-accounting of file mapped racy with migrationakpm@linux-foundation.org
FILE_MAPPED per memcg of migrated file cache is not properly updated, because our hook in page_add_file_rmap() can't know to which memcg FILE_MAPPED should be counted. Basically, this patch is for fixing the bug but includes some big changes to fix up other messes. Now, at migrating mapped file, events happen in following sequence. 1. allocate a new page. 2. get memcg of an old page. 3. charge ageinst a new page before migration. But at this point, no changes to new page's page_cgroup, no commit for the charge. (IOW, PCG_USED bit is not set.) 4. page migration replaces radix-tree, old-page and new-page. 5. page migration remaps the new page if the old page was mapped. 6. Here, the new page is unlocked. 7. memcg commits the charge for newpage, Mark the new page's page_cgroup as PCG_USED. Because "commit" happens after page-remap, we can count FILE_MAPPED at "5", because we should avoid to trust page_cgroup->mem_cgroup. if PCG_USED bit is unset. (Note: memcg's LRU removal code does that but LRU-isolation logic is used for helping it. When we overwrite page_cgroup->mem_cgroup, page_cgroup is not on LRU or page_cgroup->mem_cgroup is NULL.) We can lose file_mapped accounting information at 5 because FILE_MAPPED is updated only when mapcount changes 0->1. So we should catch it. BTW, historically, above implemntation comes from migration-failure of anonymous page. Because we charge both of old page and new page with mapcount=0, we can't catch - the page is really freed before remap. - migration fails but it's freed before remap or .....corner cases. New migration sequence with memcg is: 1. allocate a new page. 2. mark PageCgroupMigration to the old page. 3. charge against a new page onto the old page's memcg. (here, new page's pc is marked as PageCgroupUsed.) 4. page migration replaces radix-tree, page table, etc... 5. At remapping, new page's page_cgroup is now makrked as "USED" We can catch 0->1 event and FILE_MAPPED will be properly updated. And we can catch SWAPOUT event after unlock this and freeing this page by unmap() can be caught. 7. Clear PageCgroupMigration of the old page. So, FILE_MAPPED will be correctly updated. Then, for what MIGRATION flag is ? Without it, at migration failure, we may have to charge old page again because it may be fully unmapped. "charge" means that we have to dive into memory reclaim or something complated. So, it's better to avoid charge it again. Before this patch, __commit_charge() was working for both of the old/new page and fixed up all. But this technique has some racy condtion around FILE_MAPPED and SWAPOUT etc... Now, the kernel use MIGRATION flag and don't uncharge old page until the end of migration. I hope this change will make memcg's page migration much simpler. This page migration has caused several troubles. Worth to add a flag for simplification.

2010-05-27memcg: move charge of file pagesDaisuke Nishimura
This patch adds support for moving charge of file pages, which include normal file, tmpfs file and swaps of tmpfs file. It's enabled by setting bit 1 of <target cgroup>/memory.move_charge_at_immigrate. Unlike the case of anonymous pages, file pages(and swaps) in the range mmapped by the task will be moved even if the task hasn't done page fault, i.e. they might not be the task's "RSS", but other task's "RSS" that maps the same file. And mapcount of the page is ignored(the page can be moved even if page_mapcount(page) > 1). So, conditions that the page/swap should be met to be moved is that it must be in the range mmapped by the target task and it must be charged to the old cgroup.
