2012-11-19pidns: Use task_active_pid_ns where appropriateEric W. Biederman
The expressions tsk->nsproxy->pid_ns and task_active_pid_ns aka ns_of_pid(task_pid(tsk)) should have the same number of cache line misses with the practical difference that ns_of_pid(task_pid(tsk)) is released later in a processes life. Furthermore by using task_active_pid_ns it becomes trivial to write an unshare implementation for the the pid namespace. So I have used task_active_pid_ns everywhere I can. In fork since the pid has not yet been attached to the process I use ns_of_pid, to achieve the same effect. Signed-off-by: Eric W. Biederman <ebiederm@xmission.com>

2010-03-30include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking ↵Tejun Heo
implicit slab.h inclusion from percpu.h percpu.h is included by sched.h and module.h and thus ends up being included when building most .c files. percpu.h includes slab.h which in turn includes gfp.h making everything defined by the two files universally available and complicating inclusion dependencies. percpu.h -> slab.h dependency is about to be removed. Prepare for this change by updating users of gfp and slab facilities include those headers directly instead of assuming availability. As this conversion needs to touch large number of source files, the following script is used as the basis of conversion. http://userweb.kernel.org/~tj/misc/slabh-sweep.py The script does the followings. * Scan files for gfp and slab usages and update includes such that only the necessary includes are there. ie. if only gfp is used, gfp.h, if slab is used, slab.h. * When the script inserts a new include, it looks at the include blocks and try to put the new include such that its order conforms to its surrounding. It's put in the include block which contains core kernel includes, in the same order that the rest are ordered - alphabetical, Christmas tree, rev-Xmas-tree or at the end if there doesn't seem to be any matching order. * If the script can't find a place to put a new include (mostly because the file doesn't have fitting include block), it prints out an error message indicating which .h file needs to be added to the file. The conversion was done in the following steps. 1. The initial automatic conversion of all .c files updated slightly over 4000 files, deleting around 700 includes and adding ~480 gfp.h and ~3000 slab.h inclusions. The script emitted errors for ~400 files. 2. Each error was manually checked. Some didn't need the inclusion, some needed manual addition while adding it to implementation .h or embedding .c file was more appropriate for others. This step added inclusions to around 150 files. 3. The script was run again and the output was compared to the edits from #2 to make sure no file was left behind. 4. Several build tests were done and a couple of problems were fixed. e.g. lib/decompress_*.c used malloc/free() wrappers around slab APIs requiring slab.h to be added manually. 5. The script was run on all .h files but without automatically editing them as sprinkling gfp.h and slab.h inclusions around .h files could easily lead to inclusion dependency hell. Most gfp.h inclusion directives were ignored as stuff from gfp.h was usually wildly available and often used in preprocessor macros. Each slab.h inclusion directive was examined and added manually as necessary. 6. percpu.h was updated not to include slab.h. 7. Build test were done on the following configurations and failures were fixed. CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL was turned off for all tests (as my distributed build env didn't work with gcov compiles) and a few more options had to be turned off depending on archs to make things build (like ipr on powerpc/64 which failed due to missing writeq). * x86 and x86_64 UP and SMP allmodconfig and a custom test config. * powerpc and powerpc64 SMP allmodconfig * sparc and sparc64 SMP allmodconfig * ia64 SMP allmodconfig * s390 SMP allmodconfig * alpha SMP allmodconfig * um on x86_64 SMP allmodconfig 8. percpu.h modifications were reverted so that it could be applied as a separate patch and serve as bisection point. Given the fact that I had only a couple of failures from tests on step 6, I'm fairly confident about the coverage of this conversion patch. If there is a breakage, it's likely to be something in one of the arch headers which should be easily discoverable easily on most builds of the specific arch.

2009-02-18timers: add mod_timer_pending()Ingo Molnar
Impact: new timer API Based on an idea from Martin Josefsson with the help of Patrick McHardy and Stephen Hemminger: introduce the mod_timer_pending() API which is a mod_timer() offspring that is an invariant on already removed timers. (regular mod_timer() re-activates non-pending timers.) This is useful for the networking code in that it can allow unserialized mod_timer_pending() timer-forwarding calls, but a single del_timer*() will stop the timer from being reactivated again. Also while at it: - optimize the regular mod_timer() path some more, the timer-stat and a debug check was needlessly duplicated in __mod_timer(). - make the exports come straight after the function, as most other exports in timer.c already did. - eliminate __mod_timer() as an external API, change the users to mod_timer(). The regular mod_timer() code path is not impacted significantly, due to inlining optimizations and due to the simplifications.

2008-09-08powerpc/spufs: Fix possible scheduling of a context to multiple SPEsAndre Detsch
We currently have a race when scheduling a context to a SPE - after we have found a runnable context in spusched_tick, the same context may have been scheduled by spu_activate(). This may result in a panic if we try to unschedule a context that has been freed in the meantime. This change exits spu_schedule() if the context has already been scheduled, so we don't end up scheduling it twice.

We currently have a race for a free SPE. With one thread doing a spu_yield(), and another doing a spu_activate(): thread 1 thread 2 spu_yield(oldctx) spu_activate(ctx) __spu_deactivate(oldctx) spu_unschedule(oldctx, spu) spu->alloc_state = SPU_FREE spu = spu_get_idle(ctx) - searches for a SPE in state SPU_FREE, gets the context just freed by thread 1 spu_schedule(ctx, spu) spu->alloc_state = SPU_USED spu_schedule(newctx, spu) - assumes spu is still free - tries to schedule context on already-used spu This change introduces a 'free_spu' flag to spu_unschedule, to indicate whether or not the function should free the spu after descheduling the context.

2008-05-05[POWERPC] spufs: try to route SPU interrupts to local nodeLuke Browning
Currently, we re-route SPU interrupts to the current cpu, which may be on a remote node. In the case of time slicing, all spu interrupts will end up routed to the same cpu, where the spusched_tick occurs. This change routes mfc interrupts to the cpu where the controlling thread last ran, provided that cpu is on the same node as the spu (otherwise don't reroute interrupts). This should improve performance and provide a more predictable environment for processing spu exceptions. In the past we have seen concurrent delivery of spu exceptions to two cpus.

2008-02-19[POWERPC] spufs: fix scheduler starvation by idle contextsJeremy Kerr
2.6.25 has a regression where we can starve the scheduler by creating (N_SPES+1) contexts, then running them one at a time. The final context will never be run, as the other contexts are loaded on the SPEs, none of which are repoted as free (ie, spu->alloc_state != SPU_FREE), so spu_get_idle() doesn't give us a spu to run on. Because all of the contexts are stopped, none are descheduled by the scheduler tick, as spusched_tick returns if spu_stopped(ctx). This change replaces the spu_stopped() check with checking for SCHED_IDLE in ctx->policy. We set a context's policy to SCHED_IDLE when we're not in spu_run(). We also favour SCHED_IDLE contexts when looking for contexts to unbind, but leave their timeslice intact for later resumption.

2007-09-19[POWERPC] spusched: Fix null pointer dereference in find_victimChristoph Hellwig
find_victim can dereference a NULL pointer when iterating over the list of victim spus because list_mutex only guarantees spu->ct to be stable, but of course not to be non-NULL. Also fix find_victim to not call spu_unbind_context without list_mutex because that violates the above guarantee.

2007-09-19[POWERPC] spufs: Fix race condition on gang->aff_ref_spuAndre Detsch
Affinity reference point location (gang->aff_ref_spu) is reset when the whole gang is descheduled. However, the last member of a gang can be descheduled while we are trying to schedule another member of the gang. This was leading to a race condition, and the code was using gang->aff_ref_spu in an unsafe manner. By holding the gang->aff_mutex a little bit longer, and increment gang->aff_sched_count (which controls when gang->aff_ref_spu should be reset) a little bit earlier, the problem is fixed.
