2010-03-15x86, mm: Allow highmem user page tables to be disabled at boot timeIan Campbell
commit 14315592009c17035cac81f4954d5a1f4d71e489 upstream. Distros generally (I looked at Debian, RHEL5 and SLES11) seem to enable CONFIG_HIGHPTE for any x86 configuration which has highmem enabled. This means that the overhead applies even to machines which have a fairly modest amount of high memory and which therefore do not really benefit from allocating PTEs in high memory but still pay the price of the additional mapping operations. Running kernbench on a 4G box I found that with CONFIG_HIGHPTE=y but no actual highptes being allocated there was a reduction in system time used from 59.737s to 55.9s. With CONFIG_HIGHPTE=y and highmem PTEs being allocated: Average Optimal load -j 4 Run (std deviation): Elapsed Time 175.396 (0.238914) User Time 515.983 (5.85019) System Time 59.737 (1.26727) Percent CPU 263.8 (71.6796) Context Switches 39989.7 (4672.64) Sleeps 42617.7 (246.307) With CONFIG_HIGHPTE=y but with no highmem PTEs being allocated: Average Optimal load -j 4 Run (std deviation): Elapsed Time 174.278 (0.831968) User Time 515.659 (6.07012) System Time 55.9 (1.07799) Percent CPU 263.8 (71.266) Context Switches 39929.6 (4485.13) Sleeps 42583.7 (373.039) This patch allows the user to control the allocation of PTEs in highmem from the command line ("userpte=nohigh") but retains the status-quo as the default. It is possible that some simple heuristic could be developed which allows auto-tuning of this option however I don't have a sufficiently large machine available to me to perform any particularly meaningful experiments. We could probably handwave up an argument for a threshold at 16G of total RAM. Assuming 768M of lowmem we have 196608 potential lowmem PTE pages. Each page can map 2M of RAM in a PAE-enabled configuration, meaning a maximum of 384G of RAM could potentially be mapped using lowmem PTEs. Even allowing generous factor of 10 to account for other required lowmem allocations, generous slop to account for page sharing (which reduces the total amount of RAM mappable by a given number of PT pages) and other innacuracies in the estimations it would seem that even a 32G machine would not have a particularly pressing need for highmem PTEs. I think 32G could be considered to be at the upper bound of what might be sensible on a 32 bit machine (although I think in practice 64G is still supported). It's seems questionable if HIGHPTE is even a win for any amount of RAM you would sensibly run a 32 bit kernel on rather than going 64 bit.

2010-03-15sched: Don't use possibly stale sched_classThomas Gleixner
commit 83ab0aa0d5623d823444db82c3b3c34d7ec364ae upstream. setscheduler() saves task->sched_class outside of the rq->lock held region for a check after the setscheduler changes have become effective. That might result in checking a stale value. rtmutex_setprio() has the same problem, though it is protected by p->pi_lock against setscheduler(), but for correctness sake (and to avoid bad examples) it needs to be fixed as well. Retrieve task->sched_class inside of the rq->lock held region.

2010-03-15sched: Fix SMT scheduler regression in find_busiest_queue()Suresh Siddha
commit 9000f05c6d1607f79c0deacf42b09693be673f4c upstream. Fix a SMT scheduler performance regression that is leading to a scenario where SMT threads in one core are completely idle while both the SMT threads in another core (on the same socket) are busy. This is caused by this commit (with the problematic code highlighted) commit bdb94aa5dbd8b55e75f5a50b61312fe589e2c2d1 Author: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Date: Tue Sep 1 10:34:38 2009 +0200 sched: Try to deal with low capacity @@ -4203,15 +4223,18 @@ find_busiest_queue() ... for_each_cpu(i, sched_group_cpus(group)) { + unsigned long power = power_of(i); ... - wl = weighted_cpuload(i); + wl = weighted_cpuload(i) * SCHED_LOAD_SCALE; + wl /= power; - if (rq->nr_running == 1 && wl > imbalance) + if (capacity && rq->nr_running == 1 && wl > imbalance) continue; On a SMT system, power of the HT logical cpu will be 589 and the scheduler load imbalance (for scenarios like the one mentioned above) can be approximately 1024 (SCHED_LOAD_SCALE). The above change of scaling the weighted load with the power will result in "wl > imbalance" and ultimately resulting in find_busiest_queue() return NULL, causing load_balance() to think that the load is well balanced. But infact one of the tasks can be moved to the idle core for optimal performance. We don't need to use the weighted load (wl) scaled by the cpu power to compare with imabalance. In that condition, we already know there is only a single task "rq->nr_running == 1" and the comparison between imbalance, wl is to make sure that we select the correct priority thread which matches imbalance. So we really need to compare the imabalnce with the original weighted load of the cpu and not the scaled load. But in other conditions where we want the most hammered(busiest) cpu, we can use scaled load to ensure that we consider the cpu power in addition to the actual load on that cpu, so that we can move the load away from the guy that is getting most hammered with respect to the actual capacity, as compared with the rest of the cpu's in that busiest group. Fix it.

2010-03-15dm: free dm_io before bio_endio not afterMikulas Patocka
commit a97f925a32aad2a37971d7bfb657006acf04e42d upstream. Free the dm_io structure before calling bio_endio() instead of after it, to ensure that the io_pool containing it is not referenced after it is freed. This partially fixes a problem described here https://www.redhat.com/archives/dm-devel/2010-February/msg00109.html thread 1: bio_endio(bio, io_error); /* scheduling happens */ thread 2: close the device remove the device thread 1: free_io(md, io); Thread 2, when removing the device, sees non-empty md->io_pool (because the io hasn't been freed by thread 1 yet) and may crash with BUG in mempool_free. Thread 1 may also crash, when freeing into a nonexisting mempool. To fix this we must make sure that bio_endio() is the last call and the md structure is not accessed afterwards. There is another bio_endio in process_barrier, but it is called from the thread and the thread is destroyed prior to freeing the mempools, so this call is not affected by the bug. A similar bug exists with module unloads - the module may be unloaded immediately after bio_endio - but that is more difficult to fix.

commit ab1b18f70a007ea6caeb007d269abb75b131a410 upstream. The 'struct svc_deferred_req's on the xpt_deferred queue do not own a reference to the owning xprt. This is seen in svc_revisit which is where things are added to this queue. dr->xprt is set to NULL and the reference to the xprt it put. So when this list is cleaned up in svc_delete_xprt, we mustn't put the reference. Also, replace the 'for' with a 'while' which is arguably simpler and more likely to compile efficiently.

2010-03-15USB: Move hcd free_dev call into usb_disconnect to fix oopsHerbert Xu
commit f7410ced7f931bb1ad79d1336412cf7b7a33cb14 upstream. USB: Move hcd free_dev call into usb_disconnect I found a way to oops the kernel: 1. Open a USB device through devio. 2. Remove the hcd module in the host kernel. 3. Close the devio file descriptor. The problem is that closing the file descriptor does usb_release_dev as it is the last reference. usb_release_dev then tries to invoke the hcd free_dev function (or rather dereferencing the hcd driver struct). This causes an oops as the hcd driver has already been unloaded so the struct is gone. This patch tries to fix this by bringing the free_dev call earlier and into usb_disconnect.

We do the right thing: disable the interrupts in the device, and do not do any processing if the interrupt is shared with other source, but it's possible that another CPU gets delayed somewhere (e.g. loops) until we started freeing. The agreed-upon solution is to wait for interrupts to play out before proceeding. No other bareers are neceesary. A backport of this patch was tested on a 2.6.18 based kernel. Testing of 2.6.32-based kernels is under way, but it takes us forever (months) to turn this around. So I think it's a good patch and we should keep it.

2010-03-15x86, xen: Disable highmem PTE allocation even when CONFIG_HIGHPTE=yIan Campbell
commit 817a824b75b1475f1b067c8cee318c7b4d66fcde upstream. There's a path in the pagefault code where the kernel deliberately breaks its own locking rules by kmapping a high pte page without holding the pagetable lock (in at least page_check_address). This breaks Xen's ability to track the pinned/unpinned state of the page. There does not appear to be a viable workaround for this behaviour so simply disable HIGHPTE for all Xen guests.

2010-03-15thinkpad-acpi: fix bluetooth/wwan resumeHenrique de Moraes Holschuh
commit 08fedfc903c78e380b0baa7b57c52d367794d0a5 upstream. Studying the DSDTs of various thinkpads, it looks like bit 3 of the argument to SBDC and SWAN is not "set radio to last state on resume". Rather, it seems to be "if this bit is set, enable radio on resume, otherwise disable it on resume". So, the proper way to prepare the radios for S3 suspend is: disable radio and clear bit 3 on the SBDC/SWAN call to to resume with radio disabled, and enable radio and set bit 3 on the SBDC/SWAN call to resume with the radio enabled. Also, for persistent devices, the rfkill core does not restore state, so we really need to get the firmware to do the right thing. We don't sync the radio state on suspend, instead we trust the BIOS to not do anything weird if we never touched the radio state since boot. Time will tell if that's a wise way of doing things...

2010-03-15thinkpad-acpi: make driver events work in NVRAM poll modeHenrique de Moraes Holschuh
commit 7f0cf712a74fcc3ad21f0bde95bd32c2f2cc3888 upstream. Thadeu Lima de Souza Cascardo reports this: Brightness notification does not work until the user writes to hotkey_mask attribute. That's because the polling thread will only run if hotkey_user_mask is set and someone is reading the input device or if hotkey_driver_mask is set. In this second case, this condition is not tested after the mask is changed, because the brightness and volume drivers are started after the hotkey drivers. Fix tpacpi_hotkey_driver_mask_set() to call hotkey_poll_setup(), so that the poller kthread will be started when needed.

2010-03-15thinkpad-acpi: document HKEY event 3006Henrique de Moraes Holschuh
commit bf8b29c8f7f8269e99eca8b19048ed5b34b51810 upstream. Event 0x3006 is used to help power management of the ODD in the UltraBay. The EC generates this event when the ODD eject button is pressed (even if the bay is powered down). Normally, Linux doesn't need this as we keep the SATA link powered up (which wastes power). The EC powers up the bay by itself when the ODD eject button is pressed, and the SATA PHY reports the hotplug. However, we could also power that SATA link down (and for that matter, also power down the Ultrabay) if the ODD is left idle for a while with no disk inside, and use event 0x3006 to know when we need that SATA link powered back up. For now, just stop asking for more information when event 0x3006 is seen, there is no point in pestering users about it anymore.

commit 7bfbae10dc10a5c94a780d117a57e875d77e8e5a upstream. While ath9k does not support RIFS yet, the ability to receive RIFS frames is currently enabled for most chipsets in the initvals. This is causing baseband related issues on AR9160 and AR9130 based chipsets, which can lock up under certain conditions. This patch fixes these issues by overriding the initvals, effectively disabling RIFS for all affected chipsets. Signed-off-by: Felix Fietkau <nbd@openwrt.org> Acked-by: Luis R.

commit 5c0ba62fd4b2dce08055a89600f1d834f9f0fe9e upstream. When selecting the tx fallback rate, rc.c used a separate variable 'nrix' for storing the next rate index, however it did not use that as reference for further rate index lowering. Because of that, it ended up reusing the same rate for multiple multi-rate retry stages, thus decreasing delivery probability under changing link conditions. This patch removes the separate (unnecessary) variable and fixes fallback the way it was intended to work. This should result in increased throughput and better link stability.

2010-03-15ath9k: fix beacon timer restart after a card resetFelix Fietkau
commit d8728ee919282c7b01b65cd479ec1e2a9c5d3ba8 upstream. In AP mode, ath_beacon_config_ap only restarts the timer if a TSF restart is requested. Apparently this was added, because this function unconditionally sets the flag for TSF reset. The problem with this is, that ath9k_hw_reset() clobbers the timer registers (specified in the initvals), thus effectively disabling the SWBA interrupt whenever a card reset without TSF reset is issued (happens in a few places in the code). This patch fixes ath_beacon_config_ap to only issue the TSF reset flag when necessary, but reinitialize the timer unconditionally. Tests show, that this is enough to keep the SWBA interrupt going after a call to ath_reset() Signed-off-by: Felix Fietkau <nbd@openwrt.org> Signed-off-by: John W.
