2015-05-11zram: use notify_free to account all free notificationsSergey Senozhatsky
`notify_free' device attribute accounts the number of slot free notifications and internally represents the number of zram_free_page() calls. Slot free notifications are sent only when device is used as a swap device, hence `notify_free' is used only for swap devices. Since f4659d8e620d08 (zram: support REQ_DISCARD) ZRAM handles yet another one free notification (also via zram_free_page() call) -- REQ_DISCARD requests, which are sent by a filesystem, whenever some data blocks are discarded. However, there is no way to know the number of notifications in the latter case. Use `notify_free' to account the number of pages freed by zram_bio_discard() and zram_slot_free_notify(). Depending on usage scenario `notify_free' represents: a) the number of pages freed because of slot free notifications, which is equal to the number of swap_slot_free_notify() calls, so there is no behaviour change b) the number of pages freed because of REQ_DISCARD notifications Signed-off-by: Sergey Senozhatsky <sergey.senozhatsky@gmail.com> Acked-by: Minchan Kim <minchan@kernel.org> Acked-by: Jerome Marchand <jmarchan@redhat.com> Cc: Nitin Gupta <ngupta@vflare.org> Cc: Chao Yu <chao2.yu@samsung.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org> (cherry picked from commit 015254daf1753003c19c46b90ee85a963260d270) Signed-off-by: Alex Shi <alex.shi@linaro.org> Conflicts: Documentation/ABI/testing/sysfs-block-zram
2015-05-11zram: report maximum used memoryMinchan Kim
Normally, zram user could get maximum memory usage zram consumed via polling mem_used_total with sysfs in userspace. But it has a critical problem because user can miss peak memory usage during update inverval of polling. For avoiding that, user should poll it with shorter interval(ie, 0.0000000001s) with mlocking to avoid page fault delay when memory pressure is heavy. It would be troublesome. This patch adds new knob "mem_used_max" so user could see the maximum memory usage easily via reading the knob and reset it via "echo 0 > /sys/block/zram0/mem_used_max".

2015-05-11zram: zram memory size limitationMinchan Kim
Since zram has no control feature to limit memory usage, it makes hard to manage system memrory. This patch adds new knob "mem_limit" via sysfs to set up the a limit so that zram could fail allocation once it reaches the limit. In addition, user could change the limit in runtime so that he could manage the memory more dynamically. Initial state is no limit so it doesn't break old behavior.

When we initialized zcomp with single, we couldn't change max_comp_streams without zram reset but current interface doesn't show any error to user and even it changes max_comp_streams's value without any effect so it would make user very confusing. This patch prevents max_comp_streams's change when zcomp was initialized as single zcomp and emit the error to user(ex, echo).

2015-05-11zram: add multi stream functionalitySergey Senozhatsky
Existing zram (zcomp) implementation has only one compression stream (buffer and algorithm private part), so in order to prevent data corruption only one write (compress operation) can use this compression stream, forcing all concurrent write operations to wait for stream lock to be released. This patch changes zcomp to keep a compression streams list of user-defined size (via sysfs device attr). Each write operation still exclusively holds compression stream, the difference is that we can have N write operations (depending on size of streams list) executing in parallel. See TEST section later in commit message for performance data. Introduce struct zcomp_strm_multi and a set of functions to manage zcomp_strm stream access. zcomp_strm_multi has a list of idle zcomp_strm structs, spinlock to protect idle list and wait queue, making it possible to perform parallel compressions. The following set of functions added: - zcomp_strm_multi_find()/zcomp_strm_multi_release() find and release a compression stream, implement required locking - zcomp_strm_multi_create()/zcomp_strm_multi_destroy() create and destroy zcomp_strm_multi zcomp ->strm_find() and ->strm_release() callbacks are set during initialisation to zcomp_strm_multi_find()/zcomp_strm_multi_release() correspondingly. Each time zcomp issues a zcomp_strm_multi_find() call, the following set of operations performed: - spin lock strm_lock - if idle list is not empty, remove zcomp_strm from idle list, spin unlock and return zcomp stream pointer to caller - if idle list is empty, current adds itself to wait queue. it will be awaken by zcomp_strm_multi_release() caller. zcomp_strm_multi_release(): - spin lock strm_lock - add zcomp stream to idle list - spin unlock, wake up sleeper Minchan Kim reported that spinlock-based locking scheme has demonstrated a severe perfomance regression for single compression stream case, comparing to mutex-based (see https://lkml.org/lkml/2014/2/18/16) base spinlock mutex ==Initial write ==Initial write ==Initial write records: 5 records: 5 records: 5 avg: 1642424.35 avg: 699610.40 avg: 1655583.71 std: 39890.95(2.43%) std: 232014.19(33.16%) std: 52293.96 max: 1690170.94 max: 1163473.45 max: 1697164.75 min: 1568669.52 min: 573429.88 min: 1553410.23 ==Rewrite ==Rewrite ==Rewrite records: 5 records: 5 records: 5 avg: 1611775.39 avg: 501406.64 avg: 1684419.11 std: 17144.58(1.06%) std: 15354.41(3.06%) std: 18367.42 max: 1641800.95 max: 531356.78 max: 1706445.84 min: 1593515.27 min: 488817.78 min: 1655335.73 When only one compression stream available, mutex with spin on owner tends to perform much better than frequent wait_event()/wake_up(). This is why single stream implemented as a special case with mutex locking. Introduce and document zram device attribute max_comp_streams. This attr shows and stores current zcomp's max number of zcomp streams (max_strm). Extend zcomp's zcomp_create() with `max_strm' parameter. `max_strm' limits the number of zcomp_strm structs in compression backend's idle list (max_comp_streams). max_comp_streams used during initialisation as follows: -- passing to zcomp_create() max_strm equals to 1 will initialise zcomp using single compression stream zcomp_strm_single (mutex-based locking). -- passing to zcomp_create() max_strm greater than 1 will initialise zcomp using multi compression stream zcomp_strm_multi (spinlock-based locking). default max_comp_streams value is 1, meaning that zram with single stream will be initialised. Later patch will introduce configuration knob to change max_comp_streams on already initialised and used zcomp.

2015-05-11zram: promote zram from stagingMinchan Kim
Zram has lived in staging for a LONG LONG time and have been fixed/improved by many contributors so code is clean and stable now. Of course, there are lots of product using zram in real practice. The major TV companys have used zram as swap since two years ago and recently our production team released android smart phone with zram which is used as swap, too and recently Android Kitkat start to use zram for small memory smart phone. And there was a report Google released their ChromeOS with zram, too and cyanogenmod have been used zram long time ago. And I heard some disto have used zram block device for tmpfs. In addition, I saw many report from many other peoples. For example, Lubuntu start to use it. The benefit of zram is very clear. With my experience, one of the benefit was to remove jitter of video application with backgroud memory pressure. It would be effect of efficient memory usage by compression but more issue is whether swap is there or not in the system. Recent mobile platforms have used JAVA so there are many anonymous pages. But embedded system normally are reluctant to use eMMC or SDCard as swap because there is wear-leveling and latency issues so if we do not use swap, it means we can't reclaim anoymous pages and at last, we could encounter OOM kill. :( Although we have real storage as swap, it was a problem, too. Because it sometime ends up making system very unresponsible caused by slow swap storage performance. Quote from Luigi on Google "Since Chrome OS was mentioned: the main reason why we don't use swap to a disk (rotating or SSD) is because it doesn't degrade gracefully and leads to a bad interactive experience. Generally we prefer to manage RAM at a higher level, by transparently killing and restarting processes. But we noticed that zram is fast enough to be competitive with the latter, and it lets us make more efficient use of the available RAM. " and he announced. http://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-mm/msg57717.html Other uses case is to use zram for block device. Zram is block device so anyone can format the block device and mount on it so some guys on the internet start zram as /var/tmp. http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-838198-start-0.html Let's promote zram and enhance/maintain it instead of removing.

2015-02-17of/overlay: Introduce DT overlay supportPantelis Antoniou
Overlays are a method to dynamically modify part of the kernel's device tree with dynamically loaded data. Add the core functionality to parse, apply and remove an overlay changeset. The core functionality takes care of managing the overlay data format and performing the add and remove. Drivers are expected to use the overlay functionality to support custom expansion busses commonly found on consumer development boards like the BeagleBone or Raspberry Pi. The overlay code uses CONFIG_OF_DYNAMIC changesets to perform the low level work of modifying the devicetree. Documentation about internal and APIs is provided in Documentation/devicetree/overlay-notes.txt v2: - Switch from __of_node_alloc() to __of_node_dup() - Documentation fixups - Remove 2-pass processing of properties - Remove separate ov_lock; just use the DT mutex. v1: - Drop delete capability using '-' prefix. The '-' prefixed names are valid properties and nodes and there is no need for it just yet. - Do not update special properties - name & phandle ones. - Change order of node attachment, so that the special property update works.

2015-02-16of: Make device nodes kobjects so they show up in sysfsGrant Likely
Device tree nodes are already treated as objects, and we already want to expose them to userspace which is done using the /proc filesystem today. Right now the kernel has to do a lot of work to keep the /proc view in sync with the in-kernel representation. If device_nodes are switched to be kobjects then the device tree code can be a whole lot simpler. It also turns out that switching to using /sysfs from /proc results in smaller code and data size, and the userspace ABI won't change if /proc/device-tree symlinks to /sys/firmware/devicetree/base. v7: Add missing sysfs_bin_attr_init() v6: Add __of_add_property() early init fixes from Pantelis v5: Rename firmware/ofw to firmware/devicetree Fix updating property values in sysfs v4: Fixed build error on Powerpc Fixed handling of dynamic nodes on powerpc v3: Fixed handling of duplicate attribute and child node names v2: switch to using sysfs bin_attributes which solve the problem of reporting incorrect property size.

commit 027bc8b08242c59e19356b4b2c189f2d849ab660 upstream. On some ARMs the memory can be mapped pgprot_noncached() and still be working for atomic operations. As pointed out by Colin Cross <ccross@android.com>, in some cases you do want to use pgprot_noncached() if the SoC supports it to see a debug printk just before a write hanging the system. On ARMs, the atomic operations on strongly ordered memory are implementation defined. So let's provide an optional kernel parameter for configuring pgprot_noncached(), and use pgprot_writecombine() by default.

2014-12-12PM / Domains: Add generic OF-based PM domain look-upv3.10/topic/genpdTomasz Figa
This patch introduces generic code to perform PM domain look-up using device tree and automatically bind devices to their PM domains. Generic device tree bindings are introduced to specify PM domains of devices in their device tree nodes. Backwards compatibility with legacy Samsung-specific PM domain bindings is provided, but for now the new code is not compiled when CONFIG_ARCH_EXYNOS is selected to avoid collision with legacy code. This will change as soon as the Exynos PM domain code gets converted to use the generic framework in further patch. This patch was originally submitted by Tomasz Figa when he was employed by Samsung.

2014-10-02KVM: Allow KVM_CHECK_EXTENSION on the vm fdAlexander Graf
The KVM_CHECK_EXTENSION is only available on the kvm fd today. Unfortunately on PPC some of the capabilities change depending on the way a VM was created. So instead we need a way to expose capabilities as VM ioctl, so that we can see which VM type we're using (HV or PR). To enable this, add the KVM_CHECK_EXTENSION ioctl to our vm ioctl portfolio.

2014-10-02KVM: Add KVM_EXIT_SYSTEM_EVENT to user space API headerAnup Patel
Currently, we don't have an exit reason to notify user space about a system-level event (for e.g. system reset or shutdown) triggered by the VCPU. This patch adds exit reason KVM_EXIT_SYSTEM_EVENT for this purpose. We can also inform user space about the 'type' and architecture specific 'flags' of a system-level event using the kvm_run structure. This newly added KVM_EXIT_SYSTEM_EVENT will be used by KVM ARM/ARM64 in-kernel PSCI v0.2 support to reset/shutdown VMs. Signed-off-by: Anup Patel <anup.patel@linaro.org> Signed-off-by: Pranavkumar Sawargaonkar <pranavkumar@linaro.org> Reviewed-by: Christoffer Dall <christoffer.dall@linaro.org> Reviewed-by: Marc Zyngier <marc.zyngier@arm.com> Signed-off-by: Christoffer Dall <christoffer.dall@linaro.org> (cherry picked from commit 8ad6b634928a25971dc42dce101808b1491f87ec) Signed-off-by: Christoffer Dall <christoffer.dall@linaro.org>

2014-10-02KVM: arm-vgic: Support KVM_CREATE_DEVICE for VGICChristoffer Dall
Support creating the ARM VGIC device through the KVM_CREATE_DEVICE ioctl, which can then later be leveraged to use the KVM_{GET/SET}_DEVICE_ATTR, which is useful both for setting addresses in a more generic API than the ARM-specific one and is useful for save/restore of VGIC state. Adds KVM_CAP_DEVICE_CTRL to ARM capabilities. Note that we change the check for creating a VGIC from bailing out if any VCPUs were created, to bailing out if any VCPUs were ever run. This is an important distinction that shouldn't break anything, but allows creating the VGIC after the VCPUs have been created.

2014-10-02kvm: Add VFIO deviceAlex Williamson
So far we've succeeded at making KVM and VFIO mostly unaware of each other, but areas are cropping up where a connection beyond eventfds and irqfds needs to be made. This patch introduces a KVM-VFIO device that is meant to be a gateway for such interaction. The user creates the device and can add and remove VFIO groups to it via file descriptors. When a group is added, KVM verifies the group is valid and gets a reference to it via the VFIO external user interface.

In commit e935b8372cf8 ("KVM: Convert kvm_lock to raw_spinlock"), the kvm_lock was made a raw lock. However, the kvm mmu_shrink() function tries to grab the (non-raw) mmu_lock within the scope of the raw locked kvm_lock being held.
