2009-02-25shmem: fix shared anonymous accountingHugh Dickins
Each time I exit Firefox, /proc/meminfo's Committed_AS goes down almost 400 kB: OVERCOMMIT_NEVER would be allowing overcommits it should prohibit. Commit fc8744adc870a8d4366908221508bb113d8b72ee "Stop playing silly games with the VM_ACCOUNT flag" changed shmem_file_setup() to set the shmem file's VM_ACCOUNT flag according to VM_NORESERVE not being set in the vma flags; but did so only _after_ the shmem_acct_size(flags, size) call which is expected to pre-account a shared anonymous object. It's all clearer if we switch shmem.c over to use VM_NORESERVE throughout in place of !VM_ACCOUNT. But I very nearly sent in a patch which mistakenly removed the accounting from tmpfs files: shmem_get_inode()'s memset was good for not setting VM_ACCOUNT, but now it needs to set VM_NORESERVE. Rather than setting that by default, then perhaps clearing it again in shmem_file_setup(), let's pass it as a flag to shmem_get_inode(): that allows us to remove the #ifdef CONFIG_SHMEM from shmem_file_setup().

2009-02-21PM/hibernate: fix "swap breaks after hibernation failures"Alan Jenkins
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12239 The image writing code dropped a reference to the current swap device. This doesn't show up if the hibernation succeeds - because it doesn't affect the image which gets resumed. But it means multiple _failed_ hibernations end up freeing the swap device while it is still use! swsusp_write() finds the block device for the swap file using swap_type_of(). It then uses blkdev_get() / blkdev_put() to open and close the block device. Unfortunately, blkdev_get() assumes ownership of the inode of the block_device passed to it. So blkdev_put() calls iput() on the inode. This is by design and other callers expect this behaviour. The fix is for swap_type_of() to take a reference on the inode using bdget().

2009-02-20slab: introduce kzfree()Johannes Weiner
kzfree() is a wrapper for kfree() that additionally zeroes the underlying memory before releasing it to the slab allocator. Currently there is code which memset()s the memory region of an object before releasing it back to the slab allocator to make sure security-sensitive data are really zeroed out after use. These callsites can then just use kzfree() which saves some code, makes users greppable and allows for a stupid destructor that isn't necessarily aware of the actual object size.

2009-02-18mm: clean up for early_pfn_to_nid()KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki
What's happening is that the assertion in mm/page_alloc.c:move_freepages() is triggering: BUG_ON(page_zone(start_page) != page_zone(end_page)); Once I knew this is what was happening, I added some annotations: if (unlikely(page_zone(start_page) != page_zone(end_page))) { printk(KERN_ERR "move_freepages: Bogus zones: " "start_page[%p] end_page[%p] zone[%p]\n", start_page, end_page, zone); printk(KERN_ERR "move_freepages: " "start_zone[%p] end_zone[%p]\n", page_zone(start_page), page_zone(end_page)); printk(KERN_ERR "move_freepages: " "start_pfn[0x%lx] end_pfn[0x%lx]\n", page_to_pfn(start_page), page_to_pfn(end_page)); printk(KERN_ERR "move_freepages: " "start_nid[%d] end_nid[%d]\n", page_to_nid(start_page), page_to_nid(end_page)); ... And here's what I got: move_freepages: Bogus zones: start_page[2207d0000] end_page[2207dffc0] zone[fffff8103effcb00] move_freepages: start_zone[fffff8103effcb00] end_zone[fffff8003fffeb00] move_freepages: start_pfn[0x81f600] end_pfn[0x81f7ff] move_freepages: start_nid[1] end_nid[0] My memory layout on this box is: [ 0.000000] Zone PFN ranges: [ 0.000000] Normal 0x00000000 -> 0x0081ff5d [ 0.000000] Movable zone start PFN for each node [ 0.000000] early_node_map[8] active PFN ranges [ 0.000000] 0: 0x00000000 -> 0x00020000 [ 0.000000] 1: 0x00800000 -> 0x0081f7ff [ 0.000000] 1: 0x0081f800 -> 0x0081fe50 [ 0.000000] 1: 0x0081fed1 -> 0x0081fed8 [ 0.000000] 1: 0x0081feda -> 0x0081fedb [ 0.000000] 1: 0x0081fedd -> 0x0081fee5 [ 0.000000] 1: 0x0081fee7 -> 0x0081ff51 [ 0.000000] 1: 0x0081ff59 -> 0x0081ff5d So it's a block move in that 0x81f600-->0x81f7ff region which triggers the problem.

2009-02-18mm: task dirty accounting fixNick Piggin
YAMAMOTO-san noticed that task_dirty_inc doesn't seem to be called properly for cases where set_page_dirty is not used to dirty a page (eg. mark_buffer_dirty). Additionally, there is some inconsistency about when task_dirty_inc is called. It is used for dirty balancing, however it even gets called for __set_page_dirty_no_writeback. So rather than increment it in a set_page_dirty wrapper, move it down to exactly where the dirty page accounting stats are incremented.

2009-02-12Fix page writeback thinko, causing Berkeley DB slowdownNick Piggin
A bug was introduced into write_cache_pages cyclic writeout by commit 31a12666d8f0c22235297e1c1575f82061480029 ("mm: write_cache_pages cyclic fix"). The intention (and comments) is that we should cycle back and look for more dirty pages at the beginning of the file if there is no more work to be done. But the !done condition was dropped from the test. This means that any time the page writeout loop breaks (eg. due to nr_to_write == 0), we will set index to 0, then goto again. This will set done_index to index, then find done is set, so will proceed to the end of the function. When updating mapping->writeback_index for cyclic writeout, we now use done_index == 0, so we're always cycling back to 0. This seemed to be causing random mmap writes (slapadd and iozone) to start writing more pages from the LRU and writeout would slowdown, and caused bugzilla entry http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12604 about Berkeley DB slowing down dramatically. With this patch, iozone random write performance is increased nearly 5x on my system (iozone -B -r 4k -s 64k -s 512m -s 1200m on ext2).

2009-02-11mm: rearrange exit_mmap() to unlock before arch_exit_mmapJeremy Fitzhardinge
Christophe Saout reported [in precursor to: http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=123209902707347&w=4]: > Note that I also some a different issue with CONFIG_UNEVICTABLE_LRU. > Seems like Xen tears down current->mm early on process termination, so > that __get_user_pages in exit_mmap causes nasty messages when the > process had any mlocked pages. (in fact, it somehow manages to get into > the swapping code and produces a null pointer dereference trying to get > a swap token) Jeremy explained: Yes. In the normal case under Xen, an in-use pagetable is "pinned", meaning that it is RO to the kernel, and all updates must go via hypercall (or writes are trapped and emulated, which is much the same thing). An unpinned pagetable is not currently in use by any process, and can be directly accessed as normal RW pages. As an optimisation at process exit time, we unpin the pagetable as early as possible (switching the process to init_mm), so that all the normal pagetable teardown can happen with direct memory accesses. This happens in exit_mmap() -> arch_exit_mmap(). The munlocking happens a few lines below. The obvious thing to do would be to move arch_exit_mmap() to below the munlock code, but I think we'd want to call it even if mm->mmap is NULL, just to be on the safe side. Thus, this patch: exit_mmap() needs to unlock any locked vmas before calling arch_exit_mmap, as the latter may switch the current mm to init_mm, which would cause the former to fail.

2009-02-11mm: fix mlocked page counter mismatchMinChan Kim
When I tested following program, I found that the mlocked counter is strange. It cannot free some mlocked pages. It is because try_to_unmap_file() doesn't check real page mappings in vmas. That is because the goal of an address_space for a file is to find all processes into which the file's specific interval is mapped. It is related to the file's interval, not to pages. Even if the page isn't really mapped by the vma, it returns SWAP_MLOCK since the vma has VM_LOCKED, then calls try_to_mlock_page. After this the mlocked counter is increased again. COWed anon page in a file-backed vma could be a such case.

However, it is still taking filesystem quota unconditionally. At fault time, if there are no reserves and attempt is made to allocate the page and account for filesystem quota. If either fail, the fault fails. The impact is that quota is getting accounted for twice. This patch partially reverts 5a6fe125950676015f5108fb71b2a67441755003.

2009-02-11x86, ptrace, mm: fix double-free on raceMarkus Metzger
Ptrace_detach() races with __ptrace_unlink() if the traced task is reaped while detaching. This might cause a double-free of the BTS buffer. Change the ptrace_detach() path to only do the memory accounting in ptrace_bts_detach() and leave the buffer free to ptrace_bts_untrace() which will be called from __ptrace_unlink(). The fix follows a proposal from Oleg Nesterov. Reported-by: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Markus Metzger <markus.t.metzger@intel.com> Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>
2009-02-10Do not account for the address space used by hugetlbfs using VM_ACCOUNTMel Gorman
When overcommit is disabled, the core VM accounts for pages used by anonymous shared, private mappings and special mappings. It keeps track of VMAs that should be accounted for with VM_ACCOUNT and VMAs that never had a reserve with VM_NORESERVE. Overcommit for hugetlbfs is much riskier than overcommit for base pages due to contiguity requirements. It avoids overcommiting on both shared and private mappings using reservation counters that are checked and updated during mmap(). This ensures (within limits) that hugepages exist in the future when faults occurs or it is too easy to applications to be SIGKILLed. As hugetlbfs makes its own reservations of a different unit to the base page size, VM_ACCOUNT should never be set. Even if the units were correct, we would double account for the usage in the core VM and hugetlbfs. VM_NORESERVE may be set because an application can request no reserves be made for hugetlbfs at the risk of getting killed later. With commit fc8744adc870a8d4366908221508bb113d8b72ee, VM_NORESERVE and VM_ACCOUNT are getting unconditionally set for hugetlbfs-backed mappings. This breaks the accounting for both the core VM and hugetlbfs, can trigger an OOM storm when hugepage pools are too small lockups and corrupted counters otherwise are used. This patch brings hugetlbfs more in line with how the core VM treats VM_NORESERVE but prevents VM_ACCOUNT being set.

2009-02-05do_wp_page: fix regression with execute in placeCarsten Otte
Fix do_wp_page for VM_MIXEDMAP mappings. In the case where pfn_valid returns 0 for a pfn at the beginning of do_wp_page and the mapping is not shared writable, the code branches to label `gotten:' with old_page == NULL. In case the vma is locked (vma->vm_flags & VM_LOCKED), lock_page, clear_page_mlock, and unlock_page try to access the old_page. This patch checks whether old_page is valid before it is dereferenced. The regression was introduced by "mlock: mlocked pages are unevictable" (commit b291f000393f5a0b679012b39d79fbc85c018233).

Commit 05fe478dd04e02fa230c305ab9b5616669821dd3 introduced some @wbc->nr_to_write breakage. It made the following changes: 1. Decrement wbc->nr_to_write instead of nr_to_write 2. Decrement wbc->nr_to_write _only_ if wbc->sync_mode == WB_SYNC_NONE 3. If synced nr_to_write pages, stop only if if wbc->sync_mode == WB_SYNC_NONE, otherwise keep going. However, according to the commit message, the intention was to only make change 3. Change 1 is a bug. Change 2 does not seem to be necessary, and it breaks UBIFS expectations, so if needed, it should be done separately later. And change 2 does not seem to be documented in the commit message.

2009-02-01Manually revert "mlock: downgrade mmap sem while populating mlocked regions"Linus Torvalds
This essentially reverts commit 8edb08caf68184fb170f4f69c7445929e199eaea. It downgraded our mmap semaphore to a read-lock while mlocking pages, in order to allow other threads (and external accesses like "ps" et al) to walk the vma lists and take page faults etc. Which is a nice idea, but the implementation does not work. Because we cannot upgrade the lock back to a write lock without releasing the mmap semaphore, the code had to release the lock entirely and then re-take it as a writelock. However, that meant that the caller possibly lost the vma chain that it was following, since now another thread could come in and mmap/munmap the range. The code tried to work around that by just looking up the vma again and erroring out if that happened, but quite frankly, that was just a buggy hack that doesn't actually protect against anything (the other thread could just have replaced the vma with another one instead of totally unmapping it). The only way to downgrade to a read map _reliably_ is to do it at the end, which is likely the right thing to do: do all the 'vma' operations with the write-lock held, then downgrade to a read after completing them all, and then do the "populate the newly mlocked regions" while holding just the read lock. And then just drop the read-lock and return to user space. The (perhaps somewhat simpler) alternative is to just make all the callers of mlock_vma_pages_range() know that the mmap lock got dropped, and just re-grab the mmap semaphore if it needs to mlock more than one vma region. So we can do this "downgrade mmap sem while populating mlocked regions" thing right, but the way it was done here was absolutely not correct. Thus the revert, in the expectation that we will do it all correctly some day.

2009-01-31Stop playing silly games with the VM_ACCOUNT flagLinus Torvalds
The mmap_region() code would temporarily set the VM_ACCOUNT flag for anonymous shared mappings just to inform shmem_zero_setup() that it should enable accounting for the resulting shm object. It would then clear the flag after calling ->mmap (for the /dev/zero case) or doing shmem_zero_setup() (for the MAP_ANON case). This just resulted in vma merge issues, but also made for just unnecessary confusion. Use the already-existing VM_NORESERVE flag for this instead, and let shmem_{zero|file}_setup() just figure it out from that. This also happens to make it obvious that the new DRI2 GEM layer uses a non-reserving backing store for its object allocation - which is quite possibly not intentional. But since I didn't want to change semantics in this patch, I left it alone, and just updated the caller to use the new flag semantics. Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2009-01-30Allow opportunistic merging of VM_CAN_NONLINEAR areasLinus Torvalds
Commit de33c8db5910cda599899dd431cc30d7c1018cbf ("Fix OOPS in mmap_region() when merging adjacent VM_LOCKED file segments") unified the vma merging of anonymous and file maps to just one place, which simplified the code and fixed a use-after-free bug that could cause an oops. But by doing the merge opportunistically before even having called ->mmap() on the file method, it now compares two different 'vm_flags' values: the pre-mmap() value of the new not-yet-formed vma, and previous mappings of the same file around it. And in doing so, it refused to merge the common file case, which adds a marker to say "I can be made non-linear". This fixes it by just adding a set of flags that don't have to match, because we know they are ok to merge. Currently it's only that single VM_CAN_NONLINEAR flag, but at least conceptually there could be others in the future.

2009-01-29Fix OOPS in mmap_region() when merging adjacent VM_LOCKED file segmentsLinus Torvalds
As of commit ba470de43188cdbff795b5da43a1474523c6c2fb ("map: handle mlocked pages during map, remap, unmap") we now use the 'vma' variable at the end of mmap_region() to handle the page-in of newly mapped mlocked pages. However, if we merged adjacent vma's together, the vma we're using may be stale. We historically consciously avoided using it after the merge operation, but that got overlooked when redoing the locked page handling. This commit simplifies mmap_region() by doing any vma merges early, avoiding the issue entirely, and 'vma' will always be valid. As pointed out by Hugh Dickins, this depends on any drivers that change the page offset of flags to have set one of the VM_SPECIAL bits (so that they cannot trigger the early merge logic), but that's true in general.

Actually, I saw general protection fault. general protection fault: 0000 [#1] SMP last sysfs file: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu15/cache/index1/shared_cpu_map CPU 4 Modules linked in: ipt_REJECT xt_tcpudp iptable_filter ip_tables x_tables bridge stp ipv6 autofs4 hidp rfcomm l2cap bluetooth sunrpc dm_mirror dm_region_hash dm_log dm_multipath dm_mod rfkill input_polldev sbs sbshc battery ac lp sg ide_cd_mod cdrom button serio_raw acpi_memhotplug parport_pc e1000 rtc_cmos parport rtc_core rtc_lib i2c_i801 i2c_core shpchp pcspkr ata_piix libata megaraid_mbox megaraid_mm sd_mod scsi_mod ext3 jbd ehci_hcd ohci_hcd uhci_hcd [last unloaded: microcode] Pid: 26038, comm: page01 Tainted: G W 2.6.28-rc9-mm1-mmotm-2008-12-22-16-14-f2ab3dea #1 RIP: 0010:[<ffffffff8028e710>] [<ffffffff8028e710>] update_page_reclaim_stat+0x2f/0x42 RSP: 0000:ffff8801ee457da8 EFLAGS: 00010002 RAX: 32353438312021c8 RBX: 0000000000000000 RCX: 32353438312021c8 RDX: 0000000000000000 RSI: ffff8800cb0b1000 RDI: ffff8801164d1d28 RBP: ffff880110002cb8 R08: ffff88010f2eae23 R09: 0000000000000001 R10: ffff8800bc514b00 R11: ffff880110002c00 R12: 0000000000000000 R13: ffff88000f484100 R14: 0000000000000003 R15: 00000000001200d2 FS: 00007f8a261726f0(0000) GS:ffff88010f2eaa80(0000) knlGS:0000000000000000 CS: 0010 DS: 0000 ES: 0000 CR0: 000000008005003b CR2: 00007f8a25d22000 CR3: 00000001ef18c000 CR4: 00000000000006e0 DR0: 0000000000000000 DR1: 0000000000000000 DR2: 0000000000000000 DR3: 0000000000000000 DR6: 00000000ffff0ff0 DR7: 0000000000000400 Process page01 (pid: 26038, threadinfo ffff8801ee456000, task ffff8800b585b960) Stack: ffffe200071ee568 ffff880110001f00 0000000000000000 ffffffff8028ea17 ffff88000f484100 0000000000000000 0000000000000020 00007f8a25d22000 ffff8800bc514b00 ffffffff8028ec34 0000000000000000 0000000000016fd8 Call Trace: [<ffffffff8028ea17>] ? ____pagevec_lru_add+0xc1/0x13c [<ffffffff8028ec34>] ? drain_cpu_pagevecs+0x36/0x89 [<ffffffff802a4f8c>] ? swapin_readahead+0x78/0x98 [<ffffffff8029a37a>] ? handle_mm_fault+0x3d9/0x741 [<ffffffff804da654>] ? do_page_fault+0x3ce/0x78c [<ffffffff804d7a42>] ? trace_hardirqs_off_thunk+0x3a/0x3c [<ffffffff804d860f>] ? page_fault+0x1f/0x30 Code: cc 55 48 8d af b8 0d 00 00 48 89 f7 53 89 d3 e8 39 85 02 00 48 63 d3 48 ff 44 d5 10 45 85 e4 74 05 48 ff 44 d5 00 48 85 c0 74 0e <48> ff 44 d0 10 45 85 e4 74 04 48 ff 04 d0 5b 5d 41 5c c3 41 54 RIP [<ffffffff8028e710>] update_page_reclaim_stat+0x2f/0x42 RSP <ffff8801ee457da8> Signed-off-by: Daisuke Nishimura <nishimura@mxp.nes.nec.co.jp> Acked-by: KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki <kamezawa.hiroyu@jp.fujitsu.com> Cc: Balbir Singh <balbir@linux.vnet.ibm.com> Cc: Pavel Emelyanov <xemul@openvz.org> Cc: Li Zefan <lizf@cn.fujitsu.com> Cc: Paul Menage <menage@google.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2009-01-15alpha: fix vmalloc breakageIvan Kokshaysky
On alpha, we have to map some stuff in the VMALLOC space very early in the boot process (to make SRM console callbacks work and so on, see arch/alpha/mm/init.c). For old VM allocator, we just manually placed a vm_struct onto the global vmlist and this worked for ages. Unfortunately, the new allocator isn't aware of this, so it constantly tries to allocate the VM space which is already in use, making vmalloc on alpha defunct. This patch forces KVA to import vmlist entries on init.
