2013-11-20Revert "mm: create a separate slab for page->ptl allocation"Linus Torvalds
This reverts commit ea1e7ed33708c7a760419ff9ded0a6cb90586a50. Al points out that while the commit *does* actually create a separate slab for the page->ptl allocation, that slab is never actually used, and the code continues to use kmalloc/kfree. Damien Wyart points out that the original patch did have the conversion to use kmem_cache_alloc/free, so it got lost somewhere on its way to me. Revert the half-arsed attempt that didn't do anything. If we really do want the special slab (remember: this is all relevant just for debug builds, so it's not necessarily all that critical) we might as well redo the patch fully.

2013-11-17Revert "init/Kconfig: add option to disable kernel compression"H. Peter Anvin
This reverts commit 69f0554ec261fd686ac7fa1c598cc9eb27b83a80. This patch breaks randconfig on at least the x86-64 architecture, and most likely on others. There is work underway to support uncompressed kernels in a generic way, but it looks like it will amount to rewriting the support from scratch; see the LKML thread in the Link: for info. Therefore, revert this change and wait for the fix.

2013-11-15mm: create a separate slab for page->ptl allocationKirill A. Shutemov
If DEBUG_SPINLOCK and DEBUG_LOCK_ALLOC are enabled spinlock_t on x86_64 is 72 bytes. For page->ptl they will be allocated from kmalloc-96 slab, so we loose 24 on each. An average system can easily allocate few tens thousands of page->ptl and overhead is significant. Let's create a separate slab for page->ptl allocation to solve this. Signed-off-by: Kirill A.

Pull networking updates from David Miller: 1) The addition of nftables. No longer will we need protocol aware firewall filtering modules, it can all live in userspace. At the core of nftables is a, for lack of a better term, virtual machine that executes byte codes to inspect packet or metadata (arriving interface index, etc.) and make verdict decisions. Besides support for loading packet contents and comparing them, the interpreter supports lookups in various datastructures as fundamental operations. For example sets are supports, and therefore one could create a set of whitelist IP address entries which have ACCEPT verdicts attached to them, and use the appropriate byte codes to do such lookups. Since the interpreted code is composed in userspace, userspace can do things like optimize things before giving it to the kernel. Another major improvement is the capability of atomically updating portions of the ruleset. In the existing netfilter implementation, one has to update the entire rule set in order to make a change and this is very expensive. Userspace tools exist to create nftables rules using existing netfilter rule sets, but both kernel implementations will need to co-exist for quite some time as we transition from the old to the new stuff. Kudos to Patrick McHardy, Pablo Neira Ayuso, and others who have worked so hard on this. 2) Daniel Borkmann and Hannes Frederic Sowa made several improvements to our pseudo-random number generator, mostly used for things like UDP port randomization and netfitler, amongst other things. In particular the taus88 generater is updated to taus113, and test cases are added. 3) Support 64-bit rates in HTB and TBF schedulers, from Eric Dumazet and Yang Yingliang. 4) Add support for new 577xx tigon3 chips to tg3 driver, from Nithin Sujir. 5) Fix two fatal flaws in TCP dynamic right sizing, from Eric Dumazet, Neal Cardwell, and Yuchung Cheng. 6) Allow IP_TOS and IP_TTL to be specified in sendmsg() ancillary control message data, much like other socket option attributes. From Francesco Fusco. 7) Allow applications to specify a cap on the rate computed automatically by the kernel for pacing flows, via a new SO_MAX_PACING_RATE socket option. From Eric Dumazet. 8) Make the initial autotuned send buffer sizing in TCP more closely reflect actual needs, from Eric Dumazet. 9) Currently early socket demux only happens for TCP sockets, but we can do it for connected UDP sockets too. Implementation from Shawn Bohrer. 10) Refactor inet socket demux with the goal of improving hash demux performance for listening sockets. With the main goals being able to use RCU lookups on even request sockets, and eliminating the listening lock contention. From Eric Dumazet. 11) The bonding layer has many demuxes in it's fast path, and an RCU conversion was started back in 3.11, several changes here extend the RCU usage to even more locations. From Ding Tianhong and Wang Yufen, based upon suggestions by Nikolay Aleksandrov and Veaceslav Falico. 12) Allow stackability of segmentation offloads to, in particular, allow segmentation offloading over tunnels. From Eric Dumazet. 13) Significantly improve the handling of secret keys we input into the various hash functions in the inet hashtables, TCP fast open, as well as syncookies. From Hannes Frederic Sowa. The key fundamental operation is "net_get_random_once()" which uses static keys. Hannes even extended this to ipv4/ipv6 fragmentation handling and our generic flow dissector. 14) The generic driver layer takes care now to set the driver data to NULL on device removal, so it's no longer necessary for drivers to explicitly set it to NULL any more. Many drivers have been cleaned up in this way, from Jingoo Han. 15) Add a BPF based packet scheduler classifier, from Daniel Borkmann. 16) Improve CRC32 interfaces and generic SKB checksum iterators so that SCTP's checksumming can more cleanly be handled. Also from Daniel Borkmann. 17) Add a new PMTU discovery mode, IP_PMTUDISC_INTERFACE, which forces using the interface MTU value. This helps avoid PMTU attacks, particularly on DNS servers. From Hannes Frederic Sowa. 18) Use generic XPS for transmit queue steering rather than internal (re-)implementation in virtio-net.

2013-11-13./Makefile: export initial ramdisk compression config optionP J P
Make menuconfig allows one to choose compression format of an initial ramdisk image. But this choice does not result in duly compressed ramdisk image. Because - $ make install - does not pass on the selected compression choice to the dracut(8) tool, which creates the initramfs file. dracut(8) generates the image with the default compression, ie. gzip(1). This patch exports the selected compression option to a sub-shell environment, so that it could be used by dracut(8) tool to generate appropriately compressed initramfs images. There isn't a straightforward way to pass on options to dracut(8) via positional parameters. Because it is indirectly invoked at the end of a $ make install sequence. # make install -> arch/$arch/boot/Makefile -> arch/$arch/boot/install.sh -> /sbing/installkernel ... -> /sbin/new-kernel-pkg ... -> /sbin/dracut ...

2013-11-13init: make init failures more explicitMichael Opdenacker
This patch proposes to make init failures more explicit. Before this, the "No init found" message didn't help much. It could sometimes be misleading and actually mean "No *working* init found". This message could hide many different issues: - no init program candidates found at all - some init program candidates exist but can't be executed (missing execute permissions, failed to load shared libraries, executable compiled for an unknown architecture...) This patch notifies the kernel user when a candidate init program is found but can't be executed. In each failure situation, the error code is displayed, to quickly find the root cause. "No init found" is also replaced by "No working init found", which is more correct. This will help embedded Linux developers (especially the newcomers), regularly making and debugging new root filesystems.

2013-11-13init/do_mounts_rd.c: fix NULL pointer dereference while loading initramfsP J P
Make menuconfig allows one to choose compression format of an initial ramdisk image. But this choice does not result in duly compressed initial ramdisk image. Because - $ make install - does not pass on the selected compression choice to the dracut(8) tool, which creates the initramfs file. dracut(8) generates the image with the default compression, ie. gzip(1). If a user chose any other compression instead of gzip(1), it leads to a crash due to NULL pointer dereference in crd_load(), caused by a NULL function pointer returned by the 'decompress_method()' routine. Because the initramfs image is gzip(1) compressed, whereas the kernel knows only to decompress the chosen format and not gzip(1). This patch replaces the crash by an explicit panic() call with an appropriate error message. This shall prevent the kernel from eventually panicking in: init/do_mounts.c: mount_block_root() with -> panic("VFS: Unable to mount root fs on %s", b); [akpm@linux-foundation.org: mention that the problem is with the ramdisk, don't print known-to-be-NULL value] Signed-off-by: P J P <prasad@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

2013-10-31init: fix in-place parameter modification regressionKrzysztof Mazur
Before commit 026cee0086fe1df4cf74691cf273062cc769617d ("params: <level>_initcall-like kernel parameters") the __setup parameter parsing code could modify parameter in the static_command_line buffer and such modifications were kept. After that commit such modifications are destroyed during per-initcall level parameter parsing because the same static_command_line buffer is used and only parameters for appropriate initcall level are parsed. That change broke at least parsing "ubd" parameter in the ubd driver when the COW file is used. Now the separate buffer is used for per-initcall parameter parsing.

2013-10-19static_key: WARN on usage before jump_label_init was calledHannes Frederic Sowa
Usage of the static key primitives to toggle a branch must not be used before jump_label_init() is called from init/main.c. jump_label_init reorganizes and wires up the jump_entries so usage before that could have unforeseen consequences. Following primitives are now checked for correct use: * static_key_slow_inc * static_key_slow_dec * static_key_slow_dec_deferred * jump_label_rate_limit The x86 architecture already checks this by testing if the default_nop was already replaced with an optimal nop or with a branch instruction. It will panic then. Other architectures don't check for this. Because we need to relax this check for the x86 arch to allow code to transition from default_nop to the enabled state and other architectures did not check for this at all this patch introduces checking on the static_key primitives in a non-arch dependent manner. All checked functions are considered slow-path so the additional check does no harm to performance. The warnings are best observed with earlyprintk. Based on a patch from Andi Kleen.

With VIRT_CPU_ACCOUNTING_GEN, cputime_t becomes 64-bit. In order to use that feature, arch code should be audited to ensure there are no races in concurrent read/write of cputime_t. For example, reading/writing 64-bit cputime_t on some 32-bit arches may require multiple accesses for low and high value parts, so proper locking is needed to protect against concurrent accesses. Therefore, add CONFIG_HAVE_VIRT_CPU_ACCOUNTING_GEN which arches can enable after they've been audited for potential races. This option is automatically enabled on 64-bit platforms.

2013-08-15modules: do not depend on kconfig to set 'modules' option to symbol MODULESYann E. MORIN
Currently, the MODULES symbol is special-cased in different places in the kconfig language. For example, if no symbol is defined to enable tristates, then kconfig looks up for a symbol named 'MODULES', and forces the 'modules' option onto that symbol. This causes problems as such: - since MODULES is special-cased, reading the configuration with KCONFIG_ALLCONFIG set will forcibly set MODULES to be 'valid' (ie. it has a valid value), when no such value was previously set. So MODULES defaults to 'n' unless it is present in KCONFIG_ALLCONFIG - other third-party projects may decide that 'MODULES' plays a different role for them This has been exposed by cset #cfa98f2e: kconfig: do not override symbols already set and reported by Stephen in: http://marc.info/?l=linux-next&m=137592137915234&w=2 As suggested by Sam, we explicitly define the MODULES symbol to be the tristate-enabler. This will allow us to drop special-casing of MODULES in the kconfig language, later. (Note: this patch is not a fix to Stephen's issue, just a first step).

2013-08-13context_tracking: Remove full dynticks' hacky dependency on wide context ↵Frederic Weisbecker
tracking Now that the full dynticks subsystem only enables the context tracking on full dynticks CPUs, lets remove the dependency on CONTEXT_TRACKING_FORCE This dependency was a hack to enable the context tracking widely for the full dynticks susbsystem until the latter becomes able to enable it in a more CPU-finegrained fashion. Now CONTEXT_TRACKING_FORCE only stands for testing on archs that work on support for the context tracking while full dynticks can't be used yet due to unmet dependencies. It simulates a system where all CPUs are full dynticks so that RCU user extended quiescent states and dynticks cputime accounting can be tested on the given arch.

2013-07-14kernel: delete __cpuinit usage from all core kernel filesPaul Gortmaker
The __cpuinit type of throwaway sections might have made sense some time ago when RAM was more constrained, but now the savings do not offset the cost and complications. For example, the fix in commit 5e427ec2d0 ("x86: Fix bit corruption at CPU resume time") is a good example of the nasty type of bugs that can be created with improper use of the various __init prefixes. After a discussion on LKML[1] it was decided that cpuinit should go the way of devinit and be phased out. Once all the users are gone, we can then finally remove the macros themselves from linux/init.h. This removes all the uses of the __cpuinit macros from C files in the core kernel directories (kernel, init, lib, mm, and include) that don't really have a specific maintainer.
