He also discovered and fixed some bugs in doing so. When pulling in his patches, I also found a few minor bugs as well and fixed them. This also includes a compile fix for some archs that select the ring buffer but not tracing. I based this off of the last patch you took from me that fixed the merge conflict error, as that was the commit that had all the changes I needed for this set of changes." * tag 'trace-fixes-v3.10' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/rostedt/linux-trace: tracing/kprobes: Support soft-mode disabling tracing/kprobes: Support ftrace_event_file base multibuffer tracing/kprobes: Pass trace_probe directly from dispatcher tracing/kprobes: Increment probe hit-count even if it is used by perf tracing/kprobes: Use bool for retprobe checker ftrace: Fix function probe when more than one probe is added ftrace: Fix the output of enabled_functions debug file ftrace: Fix locking in register_ftrace_function_probe() tracing: Add helper function trace_create_new_event() to remove duplicate code tracing: Modify soft-mode only if there's no other referrer tracing: Indicate enabled soft-mode in enable file tracing/kprobes: Fix to increment return event probe hit-count ftrace: Cleanup regex_lock and ftrace_lock around hash updating ftrace, kprobes: Fix a deadlock on ftrace_regex_lock ftrace: Have ftrace_regex_write() return either read or error tracing: Return error if register_ftrace_function_probe() fails for event_enable_func() tracing: Don't succeed if event_enable_func did not register anything ring-buffer: Select IRQ_WORK

2013-05-09ftrace: Fix function probe when more than one probe is addedSteven Rostedt (Red Hat)
When the first function probe is added and the function tracer is updated the functions are modified to call the probe. But when a second function is added, it updates the function records to have the second function also update, but it fails to update the actual function itself. This prevents the second (or third or forth and so on) probes from having their functions called. # echo vfs_symlink:enable_event:sched:sched_switch > set_ftrace_filter # echo vfs_unlink:enable_event:sched:sched_switch > set_ftrace_filter # cat trace # tracer: nop # # entries-in-buffer/entries-written: 0/0 #P:4 # # _-----=> irqs-off # / _----=> need-resched # | / _---=> hardirq/softirq # || / _--=> preempt-depth # ||| / delay # TASK-PID CPU# |||| TIMESTAMP FUNCTION # | | | |||| | | # touch /tmp/a # rm /tmp/a # cat trace # tracer: nop # # entries-in-buffer/entries-written: 0/0 #P:4 # # _-----=> irqs-off # / _----=> need-resched # | / _---=> hardirq/softirq # || / _--=> preempt-depth # ||| / delay # TASK-PID CPU# |||| TIMESTAMP FUNCTION # | | | |||| | | # ln -s /tmp/a # cat trace # tracer: nop # # entries-in-buffer/entries-written: 414/414 #P:4 # # _-----=> irqs-off # / _----=> need-resched # | / _---=> hardirq/softirq # || / _--=> preempt-depth # ||| / delay # TASK-PID CPU# |||| TIMESTAMP FUNCTION # | | | |||| | | <idle>-0 [000] d..3 2847.923031: sched_switch: prev_comm=swapper/0 prev_pid=0 prev_prio=120 prev_state=R ==> next_comm=bash next_pid=2786 next_prio=120 <...>-3114 [001] d..4 2847.923035: sched_switch: prev_comm=ln prev_pid=3114 prev_prio=120 prev_state=x ==> next_comm=swapper/1 next_pid=0 next_prio=120 bash-2786 [000] d..3 2847.923535: sched_switch: prev_comm=bash prev_pid=2786 prev_prio=120 prev_state=S ==> next_comm=kworker/0:1 next_pid=34 next_prio=120 kworker/0:1-34 [000] d..3 2847.923552: sched_switch: prev_comm=kworker/0:1 prev_pid=34 prev_prio=120 prev_state=S ==> next_comm=swapper/0 next_pid=0 next_prio=120 <idle>-0 [002] d..3 2847.923554: sched_switch: prev_comm=swapper/2 prev_pid=0 prev_prio=120 prev_state=R ==> next_comm=sshd next_pid=2783 next_prio=120 sshd-2783 [002] d..3 2847.923660: sched_switch: prev_comm=sshd prev_pid=2783 prev_prio=120 prev_state=S ==> next_comm=swapper/2 next_pid=0 next_prio=120 Still need to update the functions even though the probe itself does not need to be registered again when added a new probe.

2013-05-09ftrace: Fix the output of enabled_functions debug fileSteven Rostedt (Red Hat)
The enabled_functions debugfs file was created to be able to see what functions have been modified from nops to calling a tracer. The current method uses the counter in the function record. As when a ftrace_ops is registered to a function, its count increases. But that doesn't mean that the function is actively being traced. /proc/sys/kernel/ftrace_enabled can be set to zero which would disable it, as well as something can go wrong and we can think its enabled when only the counter is set. The record's FTRACE_FL_ENABLED flag is set or cleared when its function is modified. That is a much more accurate way of knowing what function is enabled or not.

2013-05-09ftrace: Fix locking in register_ftrace_function_probe()Steven Rostedt (Red Hat)

2013-05-09tracing: Add helper function trace_create_new_event() to remove duplicate codeSteven Rostedt (Red Hat)
Both __trace_add_new_event() and __trace_early_add_new_event() do basically the same thing, except that __trace_add_new_event() does a little more. Instead of having duplicate code between the two functions, add a helper function trace_create_new_event() that both can use. This will help against having bugs fixed in one function but not the other. Cc: Masami Hiramatsu <masami.hiramatsu.pt@hitachi.com> Signed-off-by: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org>
2013-05-09tracing: Modify soft-mode only if there's no other referrerMasami Hiramatsu
Modify soft-mode flag only if no other soft-mode referrer (currently only the ftrace triggers) by using a reference counter in each ftrace_event_file. Without this fix, adding and removing several different enable/disable_event triggers on the same event clear soft-mode bit from the ftrace_event_file. This also happens with a typo of glob on setting triggers. e.g. # echo vfs_symlink:enable_event:net:netif_rx > set_ftrace_filter # cat events/net/netif_rx/enable 0* # echo typo_func:enable_event:net:netif_rx > set_ftrace_filter # cat events/net/netif_rx/enable 0 # cat set_ftrace_filter #### all functions enabled #### vfs_symlink:enable_event:net:netif_rx:unlimited As above, we still have a trigger, but soft-mode is gone.

2013-05-09ftrace: Cleanup regex_lock and ftrace_lock around hash updatingMasami Hiramatsu
Cleanup regex_lock and ftrace_lock locking points around ftrace_ops hash update code. The new rule is that regex_lock protects ops->*_hash read-update-write code for each ftrace_ops. Usually, hash update is done by following sequence. 1. allocate a new local hash and copy the original hash. 2. update the local hash. 3. move(actually, copy) back the local hash to ftrace_ops. 4. update ftrace entries if needed. 5. release the local hash. This makes regex_lock protect #1-#4, and ftrace_lock to protect #3, #4 and adding and removing ftrace_ops from the ftrace_ops_list. The ftrace_lock protects #3 as well because the move functions update the entries too.

2013-05-09ftrace: Have ftrace_regex_write() return either read or errorSteven Rostedt (Red Hat)
As ftrace_regex_write() reads the result of ftrace_process_regex() which can sometimes return a positive number, only consider a failure if the return is negative. Otherwise, it will skip possible other registered probes and by returning a positive number that wasn't read, it will confuse the user processes doing the writing.

2013-05-09tracing: Return error if register_ftrace_function_probe() fails for ↵Steven Rostedt (Red Hat)
event_enable_func() register_ftrace_function_probe() returns the number of functions it registered, which can be zero, it can also return a negative number if something went wrong. But event_enable_func() only checks for the case that it didn't register anything, it needs to also check for the case that something went wrong and return that error code as well. Added some comments about the code as well, to make it more understandable. Cc: Masami Hiramatsu <masami.hiramatsu.pt@hitachi.com> Signed-off-by: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org>
2013-05-09tracing: Don't succeed if event_enable_func did not register anythingMasami Hiramatsu
Return 0 instead of the number of activated ftrace function probes if event_enable_func succeeded and return an error code if it failed or did not register any functions. But it currently returns the number of registered functions and if it didn't register anything, it returns 0, but that is considered success. This also fixes the return value. As if it succeeds, it returns the number of functions that were enabled, which is returned back to the user in ftrace_regex_write (the write() return code). If only one function is enabled, then the return code of the write is one, and this can confuse the user program in thinking it only wrote 1 byte.

2013-05-07audit: Make testing for a valid loginuid explicit.Eric W. Biederman
audit rule additions containing "-F auid!=4294967295" were failing with EINVAL because of a regression caused by e1760bd. Apparently some userland audit rule sets want to know if loginuid uid has been set and are using a test for auid != 4294967295 to determine that. In practice that is a horrible way to ask if a value has been set, because it relies on subtle implementation details and will break every time the uid implementation in the kernel changes. So add a clean way to test if the audit loginuid has been set, and silently convert the old idiom to the cleaner and more comprehensible new idiom.

2013-05-06irqdomain: Allow quiet failure modeBenjamin Herrenschmidt
Some interrupt controllers refuse to map interrupts marked as "protected" by firwmare. Since we try to map everyting in the device-tree on some platforms, we end up with a lot of nasty WARN's in the boot log for what is a normal situation on those machines. This defines a specific return code (-EPERM) from the host map() callback which cause irqdomain to fail silently. MPIC is updated to return this when hitting a protected source printing only a single line message for diagnostic purposes. Signed-off-by: Benjamin Herrenschmidt <benh@kernel.crashing.org>

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip Pull 'full dynticks' support from Ingo Molnar: "This tree from Frederic Weisbecker adds a new, (exciting! :-) core kernel feature to the timer and scheduler subsystems: 'full dynticks', or CONFIG_NO_HZ_FULL=y. This feature extends the nohz variable-size timer tick feature from idle to busy CPUs (running at most one task) as well, potentially reducing the number of timer interrupts significantly. This feature got motivated by real-time folks and the -rt tree, but the general utility and motivation of full-dynticks runs wider than that: - HPC workloads get faster: CPUs running a single task should be able to utilize a maximum amount of CPU power. A periodic timer tick at HZ=1000 can cause a constant overhead of up to 1.0%. This feature removes that overhead - and speeds up the system by 0.5%-1.0% on typical distro configs even on modern systems. - Real-time workload latency reduction: CPUs running critical tasks should experience as little jitter as possible. The last remaining source of kernel-related jitter was the periodic timer tick. - A single task executing on a CPU is a pretty common situation, especially with an increasing number of cores/CPUs, so this feature helps desktop and mobile workloads as well. The cost of the feature is mainly related to increased timer reprogramming overhead when a CPU switches its tick period, and thus slightly longer to-idle and from-idle latency. Configuration-wise a third mode of operation is added to the existing two NOHZ kconfig modes: - CONFIG_HZ_PERIODIC: [formerly !CONFIG_NO_HZ], now explicitly named as a config option. This is the traditional Linux periodic tick design: there's a HZ tick going on all the time, regardless of whether a CPU is idle or not. - CONFIG_NO_HZ_IDLE: [formerly CONFIG_NO_HZ=y], this turns off the periodic tick when a CPU enters idle mode. - CONFIG_NO_HZ_FULL: this new mode, in addition to turning off the tick when a CPU is idle, also slows the tick down to 1 Hz (one timer interrupt per second) when only a single task is running on a CPU. The .config behavior is compatible: existing !CONFIG_NO_HZ and CONFIG_NO_HZ=y settings get translated to the new values, without the user having to configure anything. CONFIG_NO_HZ_FULL is turned off by default. This feature is based on a lot of infrastructure work that has been steadily going upstream in the last 2-3 cycles: related RCU support and non-periodic cputime support in particular is upstream already. This tree adds the final pieces and activates the feature. The pull request is marked RFC because: - it's marked 64-bit only at the moment - the 32-bit support patch is small but did not get ready in time. - it has a number of fresh commits that came in after the merge window. The overwhelming majority of commits are from before the merge window, but still some aspects of the tree are fresh and so I marked it RFC. - it's a pretty wide-reaching feature with lots of effects - and while the components have been in testing for some time, the full combination is still not very widely used. That it's default-off should reduce its regression abilities and obviously there are no known regressions with CONFIG_NO_HZ_FULL=y enabled either. - the feature is not completely idempotent: there is no 100% equivalent replacement for a periodic scheduler/timer tick. In particular there's ongoing work to map out and reduce its effects on scheduler load-balancing and statistics. This should not impact correctness though, there are no known regressions related to this feature at this point. - it's a pretty ambitious feature that with time will likely be enabled by most Linux distros, and we'd like you to make input on its design/implementation, if you dislike some aspect we missed. Without flaming us to crisp! :-) Future plans: - there's ongoing work to reduce 1Hz to 0Hz, to essentially shut off the periodic tick altogether when there's a single busy task on a CPU. We'd first like 1 Hz to be exposed more widely before we go for the 0 Hz target though. - once we reach 0 Hz we can remove the periodic tick assumption from nr_running>=2 as well, by essentially interrupting busy tasks only as frequently as the sched_latency constraints require us to do - once every 4-40 msecs, depending on nr_running. I am personally leaning towards biting the bullet and doing this in v3.10, like the -rt tree this effort has been going on for too long - but the final word is up to you as usual.

When BSD process accounting is enabled and logs information to a filesystem which gets frozen, system easily becomes unusable because each attempt to account process information blocks. Thus e.g. every task gets blocked in exit. It seems better to drop accounting information (which can already happen when filesystem is running out of space) instead of locking system up. So we just skip the write if the filesystem is frozen. Reported-by: Nikola Ciprich <nikola.ciprich@linuxbox.cz> Signed-off-by: Jan Kara <jack@suse.cz> Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>
2013-05-04sched: Keep at least 1 tick per second for active dynticks tasksFrederic Weisbecker
The scheduler doesn't yet fully support environments with a single task running without a periodic tick. In order to ensure we still maintain the duties of scheduler_tick(), keep at least 1 tick per second. This makes sure that we keep the progression of various scheduler accounting and background maintainance even with a very low granularity. Examples include cpu load, sched average, CFS entity vruntime, avenrun and events such as load balancing, amongst other details handled in sched_class::task_tick(). This limitation will be removed in the future once we get these individual items to work in full dynticks CPUs.
