2007-01-11[PATCH] x86-64: - Ignore long SMI interrupts in clock calibrationJack Steiner
Ensure that no SMI interrupts occur between the read of the HPET & TSC in the clock calibration loop. I noticed that a 2.66GHz system incorrectly detected the processor clock speed about 1/7 of the time: time.c: Detected 2660.005 MHz processor. (most of the time) time.c: Detected 2988.203 MHz processor. (sometime) The problem is caused by an SMI interrupt occuring in hpet_calibrate_tsc() between the read of the HPET & TSC. Prior to switching the BIOS into ACPI mode, it appears that every 27msec an SMI interrupt occurs. The SMI interrupt takes 4.8 msec to process. Note: On my test system, TICK_MIN had to be >380. I picked 5000 to minimize risk of having a value that is too small for other platforms.

2007-01-08Revert "[PATCH] x86-64: Try multiple timer variants in check_timer"Linus Torvalds
This reverts commit b026872601976f666bae77b609dc490d1834bf77, which has been linked to several problem reports with IO-APIC and the timer. Machines either don't boot because the timer doesn't happen, or we get double timer interrupts because we end up double-routing the timer irq through multiple interfaces. See for example http://lkml.org/lkml/2006/12/16/101 http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/1/3/9 http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=7789 about some of the discussion. Patches to fix this cleanup exist (and have been confirmed to work fine at least for some of the affected cases) and we'll revisit it for 2.6.21, but this late in the -rc series we're better off just reverting the incomplete commit that caused the problems.

2006-12-22[PATCH] sched: fix bad missed wakeups in the i386, x86_64, ia64, ACPI and ↵Ingo Molnar
APM idle code Fernando Lopez-Lezcano reported frequent scheduling latencies and audio xruns starting at the 2.6.18-rt kernel, and those problems persisted all until current -rt kernels. The latencies were serious and unjustified by system load, often in the milliseconds range. After a patient and heroic multi-month effort of Fernando, where he tested dozens of kernels, tried various configs, boot options, test-patches of mine and provided latency traces of those incidents, the following 'smoking gun' trace was captured by him: _------=> CPU# / _-----=> irqs-off | / _----=> need-resched || / _---=> hardirq/softirq ||| / _--=> preempt-depth |||| / ||||| delay cmd pid ||||| time | caller \ / ||||| \ | / IRQ_19-1479 1D..1 0us : __trace_start_sched_wakeup (try_to_wake_up) IRQ_19-1479 1D..1 0us : __trace_start_sched_wakeup <<...>-5856> (37 0) IRQ_19-1479 1D..1 0us : __trace_start_sched_wakeup (c01262ba 0 0) IRQ_19-1479 1D..1 0us : resched_task (try_to_wake_up) IRQ_19-1479 1D..1 0us : __spin_unlock_irqrestore (try_to_wake_up) ... <idle>-0 1...1 11us!: default_idle (cpu_idle) ... <idle>-0 0Dn.1 602us : smp_apic_timer_interrupt (c0103baf 1 0) ... <...>-5856 0D..2 618us : __switch_to (__schedule) <...>-5856 0D..2 618us : __schedule <<idle>-0> (20 162) <...>-5856 0D..2 619us : __spin_unlock_irq (__schedule) <...>-5856 0...1 619us : trace_stop_sched_switched (__schedule) <...>-5856 0D..1 619us : trace_stop_sched_switched <<...>-5856> (37 0) what is visible in this trace is that CPU#1 ran try_to_wake_up() for PID:5856, it placed PID:5856 on CPU#0's runqueue and ran resched_task() for CPU#0. But it decided to not send an IPI that no CPU - due to TS_POLLING. But CPU#0 never woke up after its NEED_RESCHED bit was set, and only rescheduled to PID:5856 upon the next lapic timer IRQ. The result was a 600+ usecs latency and a missed wakeup! the bug turned out to be an idle-wakeup bug introduced into the mainline kernel this summer via an optimization in the x86_64 tree: commit 495ab9c045e1b0e5c82951b762257fe1c9d81564 Author: Andi Kleen <ak@suse.de> Date: Mon Jun 26 13:59:11 2006 +0200 [PATCH] i386/x86-64/ia64: Move polling flag into thread_info_status During some profiling I noticed that default_idle causes a lot of memory traffic. I think that is caused by the atomic operations to clear/set the polling flag in thread_info. There is actually no reason to make this atomic - only the idle thread does it to itself, other CPUs only read it. So I moved it into ti->status. the problem is this type of change: if (!hlt_counter && boot_cpu_data.hlt_works_ok) { - clear_thread_flag(TIF_POLLING_NRFLAG); + current_thread_info()->status &= ~TS_POLLING; smp_mb__after_clear_bit(); while (!need_resched()) { local_irq_disable(); this changes clear_thread_flag() to an explicit clearing of TS_POLLING. clear_thread_flag() is defined as: clear_bit(flag, &ti->flags); and clear_bit() is a LOCK-ed atomic instruction on all x86 platforms: static inline void clear_bit(int nr, volatile unsigned long * addr) { __asm__ __volatile__( LOCK_PREFIX "btrl %1,%0" hence smp_mb__after_clear_bit() is defined as a simple compile barrier: #define smp_mb__after_clear_bit() barrier() but the explicit TS_POLLING clearing introduced by the patch: + current_thread_info()->status &= ~TS_POLLING; is not an atomic op! So the clearing of the TS_POLLING bit is freely reorderable with the reading of the NEED_RESCHED bit - and both now reside in different memory addresses. CPU idle wakeup very much depends on ordered memory ops, the clearing of the TS_POLLING flag must always be done before we test need_resched() and hit the idle instruction(s). [Symmetrically, the wakeup code needs to set NEED_RESCHED before it tests the TS_POLLING flag, so memory ordering is paramount.] Fernando's dual-core Athlon64 system has a sufficiently advanced memory ordering model so that it triggered this scenario very often. ( And it also turned out that the reason why these latencies never triggered on my testsystems is that i routinely use idle=poll, which was the only idle variant not affected by this bug. ) The fix is to change the smp_mb__after_clear_bit() to an smp_mb(), to act as an absolute barrier between the TS_POLLING write and the NEED_RESCHED read. This affects almost all idling methods (default, ACPI, APM), on all 3 x86 architectures: i386, x86_64, ia64.

2006-12-21[PATCH] x86_64: fix boot time hang in detect_calgary()Ingo Molnar
if CONFIG_CALGARY_IOMMU is built into the kernel via CONFIG_CALGARY_IOMMU_ENABLED_BY_DEFAULT, or is enabled via the iommu=calgary boot option, then the detect_calgary() function runs to detect the presence of a Calgary IOMMU. detect_calgary() first searches the BIOS EBDA area for a "rio_table_hdr" BIOS table. It has this parsing algorithm for the EBDA: while (offset) { ... /* The next offset is stored in the 1st word. 0 means no more */ offset = *((unsigned short *)(ptr + offset)); } got that? Lets repeat it slowly: we've got a BIOS-supplied data structure, plus Linux kernel code that will only break out of an infinite parsing loop once the BIOS gives a zero offset. Ok? Translation: what an excellent opportunity for BIOS writers to lock up the Linux boot process in an utterly hard to debug place! Indeed the BIOS jumped on that opportunity on my box, which has the following EBDA chaining layout: 384, 65282, 65535, 65535, 65535, 65535, 65535, 65535 ... see the pattern? So my, definitely non-Calgary system happily locks up in detect_calgary()! the patch below fixes the boot hang by trusting the BIOS-supplied data structure a bit less: the parser always has to make forward progress, and if it doesnt, we break out of the loop and i get the expected kernel message: Calgary: Unable to locate Rio Grande Table in EBDA - bailing!

2006-12-21[PATCH] x86_64: fix boot hang caused by CALGARY_IOMMU_ENABLED_BY_DEFAULTIngo Molnar
one of my boxes didnt boot the 2.6.20-rc1-rt0 kernel rpm, it hung during early bootup. After an hour or two of happy debugging i narrowed it down to the CALGARY_IOMMU_ENABLED_BY_DEFAULT option, which was freshly added to 2.6.20 via the x86_64 tree and /enabled by default/. commit bff6547bb6a4e82c399d74e7fba78b12d2f162ed claims: [PATCH] Calgary: allow compiling Calgary in but not using it by default This patch makes it possible to compile Calgary in but not use it by default. In this mode, use 'iommu=calgary' to activate it. but the change does not actually practice it: config CALGARY_IOMMU_ENABLED_BY_DEFAULT bool "Should Calgary be enabled by default?" default y depends on CALGARY_IOMMU help Should Calgary be enabled by default? if you choose 'y', Calgary will be used (if it exists). If you choose 'n', Calgary will not be used even if it exists. If you choose 'n' and would like to use Calgary anyway, pass 'iommu=calgary' on the kernel command line. If unsure, say Y. it's both 'default y', and says "If unsure, say Y". Clearly not a typo. disabling this option makes my box boot again. The patch below fixes the Kconfig entry. Grumble.

2006-12-09[PATCH] x86: Fix boot hang due to nmi watchdog init codeRavikiran G Thirumalai
2.6.19 stopped booting (or booted based on build/config) on our x86_64 systems due to a bug introduced in 2.6.19. check_nmi_watchdog schedules an IPI on all cpus to busy wait on a flag, but fails to set the busywait flag if NMI functionality is disabled. This causes the secondary cpus to spin in an endless loop, causing the kernel bootup to hang. Depending upon the build, the busywait flag got overwritten (stack variable) and caused the kernel to bootup on certain builds. Following patch fixes the bug by setting the busywait flag before returning from check_nmi_watchdog. I guess using a stack variable is not good here as the calling function could potentially return while the busy wait loop is still spinning on the flag.

2006-12-08[PATCH] LOG2: Implement a general integer log2 facility in the kernelDavid Howells
This facility provides three entry points: ilog2() Log base 2 of unsigned long ilog2_u32() Log base 2 of u32 ilog2_u64() Log base 2 of u64 These facilities can either be used inside functions on dynamic data: int do_something(long q) { ...; y = ilog2(x) ...; } Or can be used to statically initialise global variables with constant values: unsigned n = ilog2(27); When performing static initialisation, the compiler will report "error: initializer element is not constant" if asked to take a log of zero or of something not reducible to a constant. They treat negative numbers as unsigned. When not dealing with a constant, they fall back to using fls() which permits them to use arch-specific log calculation instructions - such as BSR on x86/x86_64 or SCAN on FRV - if available.

2006-12-07[PATCH] kprobes: enable booster on the preemptible kernelMasami Hiramatsu
When we are unregistering a kprobe-booster, we can't release its instruction buffer immediately on the preemptive kernel, because some processes might be preempted on the buffer. The freeze_processes() and thaw_processes() functions can clean most of processes up from the buffer. There are still some non-frozen threads who have the PF_NOFREEZE flag. If those threads are sleeping (not preempted) at the known place outside the buffer, we can ensure safety of freeing. However, the processing of this check routine takes a long time. So, this patch introduces the garbage collection mechanism of insn_slot. It also introduces the "dirty" flag to free_insn_slot because of efficiency. The "clean" instruction slots (dirty flag is cleared) are released immediately. But the "dirty" slots which are used by boosted kprobes, are marked as garbages. collect_garbage_slots() will be invoked to release "dirty" slots if there are more than INSNS_PER_PAGE garbage slots or if there are no unused slots.

2006-12-07[PATCH] x86-64: check vector in setup_ioapic_dest to verify if need ↵Yinghai Lu
setup_IO_APIC_irq setup_IO_APIC_irqs could fail to get vector for some device when you have too many devices, because at that time only boot cpu is online. So check vector for irq in setup_ioapic_dest and call setup_IO_APIC_irq to make sure IO-APIC irq-routing table is initialized. Also seperate setup_IO_APIC_irq from setup_IO_APIC_irqs.

2006-12-07[PATCH] x86-64: Fix interrupt race in idle callback (3rd try)Venkatesh Pallipadi
Idle callbacks has some races when enter_idle() sets isidle and subsequent interrupts that can happen on that CPU, before CPU goes to idle. Due to this, an IDLE_END can get called before IDLE_START. To avoid these races, disable interrupts before enter_idle and make sure that all idle routines do not enable interrupts before entering idle. Note that poll_idle() still has a this race as it has to enable interrupts before going to idle. But, all other idle routines have the race fixed.

2006-12-07[PATCH] unwinder: always use unlocked module list access in unwinder fallbackAndi Kleen
We're already well protected against module unloads because module unload uses stop_machine(). The only exception is NMIs, but other users already risk lockless accesses here. This avoids some hackery in lockdep and also a potential deadlock This matches what i386 does. Signed-off-by: Andi Kleen <ak@suse.de>
2006-12-07[PATCH] x86-64: Mark rdtsc as sync only for netburst, not for core2Arjan van de Ven
On the Core2 cpus, the rdtsc instruction is not serializing (as defined in the architecture reference since rdtsc exists) and due to the deep speculation of these cores, it's possible that you can observe time go backwards between cores due to this speculation. Since the kernel already deals with this with the SYNC_RDTSC flag, the solution is simple, only assume that the instruction is serializing on family 15... The price one pays for this is a slightly slower gettimeofday (by a dozen or two cycles), but that increase is quite small to pay for a really-going-forward tsc counter.
