2010-08-18ALSA: emu10k1 - delay the PCM interrupts (add pcm_irq_delay parameter)Jaroslav Kysela
With some hardware combinations, the PCM interrupts are acknowledged before the period boundary from the emu10k1 chip. The midlevel PCM code gets confused and the playback stream is interrupted. It seems that the interrupt processing shift by 2 samples is enough to fix this issue. This default value does not harm other, non-affected hardware.

2010-08-18fs: brlock vfsmount_lockNick Piggin
fs: brlock vfsmount_lock Use a brlock for the vfsmount lock. It must be taken for write whenever modifying the mount hash or associated fields, and may be taken for read when performing mount hash lookups. A new lock is added for the mnt-id allocator, so it doesn't need to take the heavy vfsmount write-lock. The number of atomics should remain the same for fastpath rlock cases, though code would be slightly slower due to per-cpu access. Scalability is not not be much improved in common cases yet, due to other locks (ie. dcache_lock) getting in the way. However path lookups crossing mountpoints should be one case where scalability is improved (currently requiring the global lock). The slowpath is slower due to use of brlock. On a 64 core, 64 socket, 32 node Altix system (high latency to remote nodes), a simple umount microbenchmark (mount --bind mnt mnt2 ; umount mnt2 loop 1000 times), before this patch it took 6.8s, afterwards took 7.1s, about 5% slower.

2010-08-18fs: scale files_lockNick Piggin
fs: scale files_lock Improve scalability of files_lock by adding per-cpu, per-sb files lists, protected with an lglock. The lglock provides fast access to the per-cpu lists to add and remove files. It also provides a snapshot of all the per-cpu lists (although this is very slow). One difficulty with this approach is that a file can be removed from the list by another CPU. We must track which per-cpu list the file is on with a new variale in the file struct (packed into a hole on 64-bit archs). Scalability could suffer if files are frequently removed from different cpu's list. However loads with frequent removal of files imply short interval between adding and removing the files, and the scheduler attempts to avoid moving processes too far away. Also, even in the case of cross-CPU removal, the hardware has much more opportunity to parallelise cacheline transfers with N cachelines than with 1. A worst-case test of 1 CPU allocating files subsequently being freed by N CPUs degenerates to contending on a single lock, which is no worse than before. When more than one CPU are allocating files, even if they are always freed by different CPUs, there will be more parallelism than the single-lock case. Testing results: On a 2 socket, 8 core opteron, I measure the number of times the lock is taken to remove the file, the number of times it is removed by the same CPU that added it, and the number of times it is removed by the same node that added it. Booting: locks= 25049 cpu-hits= 23174 (92.5%) node-hits= 23945 (95.6%) kbuild -j16 locks=2281913 cpu-hits=2208126 (96.8%) node-hits=2252674 (98.7%) dbench 64 locks=4306582 cpu-hits=4287247 (99.6%) node-hits=4299527 (99.8%) So a file is removed from the same CPU it was added by over 90% of the time. It remains within the same node 95% of the time. Tim Chen ran some numbers for a 64 thread Nehalem system performing a compile. throughput 2.6.34-rc2 24.5 +patch 24.9 us sys idle IO wait (in %) 2.6.34-rc2 51.25 28.25 17.25 3.25 +patch 53.75 18.5 19 8.75 So significantly less CPU time spent in kernel code, higher idle time and slightly higher throughput. Single threaded performance difference was within the noise of microbenchmarks. That is not to say penalty does not exist, the code is larger and more memory accesses required so it will be slightly slower.

2010-08-18lglock: introduce special lglock and brlock spin locksNick Piggin
lglock: introduce special lglock and brlock spin locks This patch introduces "local-global" locks (lglocks). These can be used to: - Provide fast exclusive access to per-CPU data, with exclusive access to another CPU's data allowed but possibly subject to contention, and to provide very slow exclusive access to all per-CPU data. - Or to provide very fast and scalable read serialisation, and to provide very slow exclusive serialisation of data (not necessarily per-CPU data). Brlocks are also implemented as a short-hand notation for the latter use case. Thanks to Paul for local/global naming convention.

2010-08-18tty: fix fu_list abuseNick Piggin
tty: fix fu_list abuse tty code abuses fu_list, which causes a bug in remount,ro handling. If a tty device node is opened on a filesystem, then the last link to the inode removed, the filesystem will be allowed to be remounted readonly. This is because fs_may_remount_ro does not find the 0 link tty inode on the file sb list (because the tty code incorrectly removed it to use for its own purpose). This can result in a filesystem with errors after it is marked "clean". Taking idea from Christoph's initial patch, allocate a tty private struct at file->private_data and put our required list fields in there, linking file and tty. This makes tty nodes behave the same way as other device nodes and avoid meddling with the vfs, and avoids this bug. The error handling is not trivial in the tty code, so for this bugfix, I take the simple approach of using __GFP_NOFAIL and don't worry about memory errors. This is not a problem because our allocator doesn't fail small allocs as a rule anyway. So proper error handling is left as an exercise for tty hackers. [ Arguably filesystem's device inode would ideally be divorced from the driver's pseudo inode when it is opened, but in practice it's not clear whether that will ever be worth implementing. ] Cc: linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org Cc: Christoph Hellwig <hch@infradead.org> Cc: Alan Cox <alan@lxorguk.ukuu.org.uk> Cc: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@suse.de> Signed-off-by: Nick Piggin <npiggin@kernel.dk> Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>

2010-08-18fs: remove extra lookup in __lookup_hashNick Piggin
fs: remove extra lookup in __lookup_hash Optimize lookup for create operations, where no dentry should often be common-case. In cases where it is not, such as unlink, the added overhead is much smaller than the removed. Also, move comments about __d_lookup racyness to the __d_lookup call site. d_lookup is intuitive; __d_lookup is what needs commenting. So in that same vein, add kerneldoc comments to __d_lookup and clean up some of the comments: - We are interested in how the RCU lookup works here, particularly with renames. Make that explicit, and point to the document where it is explained in more detail. - RCU is pretty standard now, and macros make implementations pretty mindless. If we want to know about RCU barrier details, we look in RCU code. - Delete some boring legacy comments because we don't care much about how the code used to work, more about the interesting parts of how it works now. So comments about lazy LRU may be interesting, but would better be done in the LRU or refcount management code.

2010-08-18fs: fs_struct rwlock to spinlockNick Piggin
fs: fs_struct rwlock to spinlock struct fs_struct.lock is an rwlock with the read-side used to protect root and pwd members while taking references to them. Taking a reference to a path typically requires just 2 atomic ops, so the critical section is very small. Parallel read-side operations would have cacheline contention on the lock, the dentry, and the vfsmount cachelines, so the rwlock is unlikely to ever give a real parallelism increase. Replace it with a spinlock to avoid one or two atomic operations in typical path lookup fastpath. Signed-off-by: Nick Piggin <npiggin@kernel.dk> Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>

2010-08-18fs: fix do_lookup false negativeNick Piggin
fs: fix do_lookup false negative In do_lookup, if we initially find no dentry, we take the directory i_mutex and re-check the lookup. If we find a dentry there, then we revalidate it if needed. However if that revalidate asks for the dentry to be invalidated, we return -ENOENT from do_lookup. What should happen instead is an attempt to allocate and lookup a new dentry. This is probably not noticed because it is rare. It is only reached if a concurrent create races in first (in which case, the dentry probably won't be invalidated anyway), or if the racy __d_lookup has failed due to a false-negative (which is very rare). Fix this by removing code and have it use the normal reval path. Signed-off-by: Nick Piggin <npiggin@kernel.dk> Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>

2010-08-18remove SWRITE* I/O typesChristoph Hellwig
These flags aren't real I/O types, but tell ll_rw_block to always lock the buffer instead of giving up on a failed trylock. Instead add a new write_dirty_buffer helper that implements this semantic and use it from the existing SWRITE* callers. Note that the ll_rw_block code had a bug where it didn't promote WRITE_SYNC_PLUG properly, which this patch fixes. In the ufs code clean up the helper that used to call ll_rw_block to mirror sync_dirty_buffer, which is the function it implements for compound buffers.
