2012-03-28mm: move hugepage test examples to tools/testing/selftests/vmDave Young8-24/+112
hugepage-mmap.c, hugepage-shm.c and map_hugetlb.c in Documentation/vm are simple pass/fail tests, It's better to promote them to tools/testing/selftests. Thanks suggestion of Andrew Morton about this. They all need firstly setting up proper nr_hugepages and hugepage-mmap need to mount hugetlbfs. So I add a shell script run_vmtests to do such work which will call the three test programs and check the return value of them. Changes to original code including below: a. add run_vmtests script b. return error when read_bytes mismatch with writed bytes. c. coding style fixes: do not use assignment in if condition [akpm@linux-foundation.org: build the targets before trying to execute them] [akpm@linux-foundation.org: Documentation/vm/ no longer has a Makefile.

2012-03-28mm: move page-types.c from Documentation to tools/vmDave Young3-4/+15
tools/ is the better place for vm tools which are used by many people. Moving them to tools also make them open to more users instead of hide in Documentation folder. This patch moves page-types.c to tools/vm/page-types.c. Also add a Makefile in tools/vm and fix two coding style problems: a) change const arrary to 'const char * const', b) change a space to tab for indent.

2012-03-28selftests: launch individual selftests from the main MakefileFrederic Weisbecker3-10/+10
Remove the run_tests script and launch the selftests by calling "make run_tests" from the selftests top directory instead. This delegates to the Makefile in each selftest directory, where it is decided how to launch the local test. This removes the need to add each selftest directory to the now removed "run_tests" top script.

2012-03-28radix-tree: use iterators in find_get_pages* functionsKonstantin Khlebnikov1-48/+38
Replace radix_tree_gang_lookup_slot() and radix_tree_gang_lookup_tag_slot() in page-cache lookup functions with brand-new radix-tree direct iterating. This avoids the double-scanning and pointer copying. Iterator don't stop after nr_pages page-get fails in a row, it continue lookup till the radix-tree end. Thus we can safely remove these restart conditions. Unfortunately, old implementation didn't forbid nr_pages == 0, this corner case does not fit into new code, so the patch adds an extra check at the beginning.

2012-03-28radix-tree: introduce bit-optimized iteratorKonstantin Khlebnikov2-0/+347
A series of radix tree cleanups, and usage of them in the core pagecache code. Micro-benchmark: lookup 14 slots (typical page-vector size) in radix-tree there earch <step> slot filled and tagged before/after - nsec per full scan through tree * Intel Sandy Bridge i7-2620M 4Mb L3 New code always faster * AMD Athlon 6000+ 2x1Mb L2, without L3 New code generally faster, Minor degradation (marked with "*") for huge sparse trees * i386 on Sandy Bridge New code faster for common cases: tagged and dense trees. Some degradations for non-tagged lookup on sparse trees. Ideally, there might help __ffs() analog for searching first non-zero long element in array, gcc sometimes cannot optimize this loop corretly.

For tagged-iterating it also constuct bitmask of tags for retunted chunk. All additional logic implemented as static-inline functions and macroses. Also adds radix_tree_find_next_bit() static-inline variant of find_next_bit() optimized for small constant size arrays, because find_next_bit() too heavy for searching in an array with one/two long elements.

2012-03-28pidns: add reboot_pid_ns() to handle the reboot syscallDaniel Lezcano3-1/+49
In the case of a child pid namespace, rebooting the system does not really makes sense. When the pid namespace is used in conjunction with the other namespaces in order to create a linux container, the reboot syscall leads to some problems. A container can reboot the host. That can be fixed by dropping the sys_reboot capability but we are unable to correctly to poweroff/ halt/reboot a container and the container stays stuck at the shutdown time with the container's init process waiting indefinitively. After several attempts, no solution from userspace was found to reliabily handle the shutdown from a container. This patch propose to make the init process of the child pid namespace to exit with a signal status set to : SIGINT if the child pid namespace called "halt/poweroff" and SIGHUP if the child pid namespace called "reboot". When the reboot syscall is called and we are not in the initial pid namespace, we kill the pid namespace for "HALT", "POWEROFF", "RESTART", and "RESTART2". Otherwise we return EINVAL. Returning EINVAL is also an easy way to check if this feature is supported by the kernel when invoking another 'reboot' option like CAD. By this way the parent process of the child pid namespace knows if it rebooted or not and can take the right decision. Test case: ========== #include <alloca.h> #include <stdio.h> #include <sched.h> #include <unistd.h> #include <signal.h> #include <sys/reboot.h> #include <sys/types.h> #include <sys/wait.h> #include <linux/reboot.h> static int do_reboot(void *arg) { int *cmd = arg; if (reboot(*cmd)) printf("failed to reboot(%d): %m\n", *cmd); } int test_reboot(int cmd, int sig) { long stack_size = 4096; void *stack = alloca(stack_size) + stack_size; int status; pid_t ret; ret = clone(do_reboot, stack, CLONE_NEWPID | SIGCHLD, &cmd); if (ret < 0) { printf("failed to clone: %m\n"); return -1; } if (wait(&status) < 0) { printf("unexpected wait error: %m\n"); return -1; } if (!WIFSIGNALED(status)) { printf("child process exited but was not signaled\n"); return -1; } if (WTERMSIG(status) != sig) { printf("signal termination is not the one expected\n"); return -1; } return 0; } int main(int argc, char *argv[]) { int status; status = test_reboot(LINUX_REBOOT_CMD_RESTART, SIGHUP); if (status < 0) return 1; printf("reboot(LINUX_REBOOT_CMD_RESTART) succeed\n"); status = test_reboot(LINUX_REBOOT_CMD_RESTART2, SIGHUP); if (status < 0) return 1; printf("reboot(LINUX_REBOOT_CMD_RESTART2) succeed\n"); status = test_reboot(LINUX_REBOOT_CMD_HALT, SIGINT); if (status < 0) return 1; printf("reboot(LINUX_REBOOT_CMD_HALT) succeed\n"); status = test_reboot(LINUX_REBOOT_CMD_POWER_OFF, SIGINT); if (status < 0) return 1; printf("reboot(LINUX_REBOOT_CMD_POWERR_OFF) succeed\n"); status = test_reboot(LINUX_REBOOT_CMD_CAD_ON, -1); if (status >= 0) { printf("reboot(LINUX_REBOOT_CMD_CAD_ON) should have failed\n"); return 1; } printf("reboot(LINUX_REBOOT_CMD_CAD_ON) has failed as expected\n"); return 0; } [akpm@linux-foundation.org: tweak and add comments] [akpm@linux-foundation.org: checkpatch fixes] Signed-off-by: Daniel Lezcano <daniel.lezcano@free.fr> Acked-by: Serge Hallyn <serge.hallyn@canonical.com> Tested-by: Serge Hallyn <serge.hallyn@canonical.com> Reviewed-by: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@redhat.com> Cc: Michael Kerrisk <mtk.manpages@gmail.com> Cc: "Eric W.

2012-03-28kdump x86: fix total mem size calculation for reservationDave Young1-10/+1
crashkernel reservation need know the total memory size. Current get_total_mem simply use max_pfn - min_low_pfn. It is wrong because it will including memory holes in the middle. Especially for kvm guest with memory > 0xe0000000, there's below in qemu code: qemu split memory as below: if (ram_size >= 0xe0000000 ) { above_4g_mem_size = ram_size - 0xe0000000; below_4g_mem_size = 0xe0000000; } else { below_4g_mem_size = ram_size; } So for 4G mem guest, seabios will insert a 512M usable region beyond of 4G. Thus in above case max_pfn - min_low_pfn will be more than original memsize. Fixing this issue by using memblock_phys_mem_size() to get the total memsize.

2012-03-28mm: only IPI CPUs to drain local pages if they existGilad Ben-Yossef1-2/+38
Calculate a cpumask of CPUs with per-cpu pages in any zone and only send an IPI requesting CPUs to drain these pages to the buddy allocator if they actually have pages when asked to flush. This patch saves 85%+ of IPIs asking to drain per-cpu pages in case of severe memory pressure that leads to OOM since in these cases multiple, possibly concurrent, allocation requests end up in the direct reclaim code path so when the per-cpu pages end up reclaimed on first allocation failure for most of the proceeding allocation attempts until the memory pressure is off (possibly via the OOM killer) there are no per-cpu pages on most CPUs (and there can easily be hundreds of them). This also has the side effect of shortening the average latency of direct reclaim by 1 or more order of magnitude since waiting for all the CPUs to ACK the IPI takes a long time. Tested by running "hackbench 400" on a 8 CPU x86 VM and observing the difference between the number of direct reclaim attempts that end up in drain_all_pages() and those were more then 1/2 of the online CPU had any per-cpu page in them, using the vmstat counters introduced in the next patch in the series and using proc/interrupts. In the test sceanrio, this was seen to save around 3600 global IPIs after trigerring an OOM on a concurrent workload: $ cat /proc/vmstat | tail -n 2 pcp_global_drain 0 pcp_global_ipi_saved 0 $ cat /proc/interrupts | grep CAL CAL: 1 2 1 2 2 2 2 2 Function call interrupts $ hackbench 400 [OOM messages snipped] $ cat /proc/vmstat | tail -n 2 pcp_global_drain 3647 pcp_global_ipi_saved 3642 $ cat /proc/interrupts | grep CAL CAL: 6 13 6 3 3 3 1 2 7 Function call interrupts Please note that if the global drain is removed from the direct reclaim path as a patch from Mel Gorman currently suggests this should be replaced with an on_each_cpu_cond invocation.

2012-03-28fs: only send IPI to invalidate LRU BH when neededGilad Ben-Yossef1-1/+14
In several code paths, such as when unmounting a file system (but not only) we send an IPI to ask each cpu to invalidate its local LRU BHs. For multi-cores systems that have many cpus that may not have any LRU BH because they are idle or because they have not performed any file system accesses since last invalidation (e.g. CPU crunching on high perfomance computing nodes that write results to shared memory or only using filesystems that do not use the bh layer.) This can lead to loss of performance each time someone switches the KVM (the virtual keyboard and screen type, not the hypervisor) if it has a USB storage stuck in. This patch attempts to only send an IPI to cpus that have LRU BH.

2012-03-28slub: only IPI CPUs that have per cpu obj to flushGilad Ben-Yossef1-1/+9
flush_all() is called for each kmem_cache_destroy(). So every cache being destroyed dynamically ends up sending an IPI to each CPU in the system, regardless if the cache has ever been used there. For example, if you close the Infinband ipath driver char device file, the close file ops calls kmem_cache_destroy(). So running some infiniband config tool on one a single CPU dedicated to system tasks might interrupt the rest of the 127 CPUs dedicated to some CPU intensive or latency sensitive task. I suspect there is a good chance that every line in the output of "git grep kmem_cache_destroy linux/ | grep '\->'" has a similar scenario. This patch attempts to rectify this issue by sending an IPI to flush the per cpu objects back to the free lists only to CPUs that seem to have such objects. The check which CPU to IPI is racy but we don't care since asking a CPU without per cpu objects to flush does no damage and as far as I can tell the flush_all by itself is racy against allocs on remote CPUs anyway, so if you required the flush_all to be determinstic, you had to arrange for locking regardless. Without this patch the following artificial test case: $ cd /sys/kernel/slab $ for DIR in *; do cat $DIR/alloc_calls > /dev/null; done produces 166 IPIs on an cpuset isolated CPU. With it it produces none. The code path of memory allocation failure for CPUMASK_OFFSTACK=y config was tested using fault injection framework.

2012-03-28smp: add func to IPI cpus based on parameter funcGilad Ben-Yossef2-0/+85
Add the on_each_cpu_cond() function that wraps on_each_cpu_mask() and calculates the cpumask of cpus to IPI by calling a function supplied as a parameter in order to determine whether to IPI each specific cpu. The function works around allocation failure of cpumask variable in CONFIG_CPUMASK_OFFSTACK=y by itereating over cpus sending an IPI a time via smp_call_function_single(). The function is useful since it allows to seperate the specific code that decided in each case whether to IPI a specific cpu for a specific request from the common boilerplate code of handling creating the mask, handling failures etc. [akpm@linux-foundation.org: s/gfpflags/gfp_flags/] [akpm@linux-foundation.org: avoid double-evaluation of `info' (per Michal), parenthesise evaluation of `cond_func'] [akpm@linux-foundation.org: s/CPU/CPUs, use all 80 cols in comment] Signed-off-by: Gilad Ben-Yossef <gilad@benyossef.com> Cc: Chris Metcalf <cmetcalf@tilera.com> Cc: Christoph Lameter <cl@linux-foundation.org> Acked-by: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Cc: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@gmail.com> Cc: Russell King <linux@arm.linux.org.uk> Cc: Pekka Enberg <penberg@kernel.org> Cc: Matt Mackall <mpm@selenic.com> Cc: Sasha Levin <levinsasha928@gmail.com> Cc: Rik van Riel <riel@redhat.com> Cc: Andi Kleen <andi@firstfloor.org> Cc: Alexander Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk> Cc: Avi Kivity <avi@redhat.com> Acked-by: Michal Nazarewicz <mina86@mina86.org> Cc: Kosaki Motohiro <kosaki.motohiro@gmail.com> Cc: Milton Miller <miltonm@bga.com> Reviewed-by: "Srivatsa S.

2012-03-28smp: introduce a generic on_each_cpu_mask() functionGilad Ben-Yossef5-41/+56
We have lots of infrastructure in place to partition multi-core systems such that we have a group of CPUs that are dedicated to specific task: cgroups, scheduler and interrupt affinity, and cpuisol= boot parameter. Still, kernel code will at times interrupt all CPUs in the system via IPIs for various needs. These IPIs are useful and cannot be avoided altogether, but in certain cases it is possible to interrupt only specific CPUs that have useful work to do and not the entire system. This patch set, inspired by discussions with Peter Zijlstra and Frederic Weisbecker when testing the nohz task patch set, is a first stab at trying to explore doing this by locating the places where such global IPI calls are being made and turning the global IPI into an IPI for a specific group of CPUs. The purpose of the patch set is to get feedback if this is the right way to go for dealing with this issue and indeed, if the issue is even worth dealing with at all. Based on the feedback from this patch set I plan to offer further patches that address similar issue in other code paths. This patch creates an on_each_cpu_mask() and on_each_cpu_cond() infrastructure API (the former derived from existing arch specific versions in Tile and Arm) and uses them to turn several global IPI invocation to per CPU group invocations. Core kernel: on_each_cpu_mask() calls a function on processors specified by cpumask, which may or may not include the local processor. You must not call this function with disabled interrupts or from a hardware interrupt handler or from a bottom half handler. arch/arm: Note that the generic version is a little different then the Arm one: 1. It has the mask as first parameter 2. It calls the function on the calling CPU with interrupts disabled, but this should be OK since the function is called on the other CPUs with interrupts disabled anyway. arch/tile: The API is the same as the tile private one, but the generic version also calls the function on the with interrupts disabled in UP case This is OK since the function is called on the other CPUs with interrupts disabled.

2012-03-28mm, coredump: fail allocations when coredumping instead of oom killingDavid Rientjes1-0/+4
The size of coredump files is limited by RLIMIT_CORE, however, allocating large amounts of memory results in three negative consequences: - the coredumping process may be chosen for oom kill and quickly deplete all memory reserves in oom conditions preventing further progress from being made or tasks from exiting, - the coredumping process may cause other processes to be oom killed without fault of their own as the result of a SIGSEGV, for example, in the coredumping process, or - the coredumping process may result in a livelock while writing to the dump file if it needs memory to allocate while other threads are in the exit path waiting on the coredumper to complete. This is fixed by implying __GFP_NORETRY in the page allocator for coredumping processes when reclaim has failed so the allocations fail and the process continues to exit.

2012-03-28mm for fs: add truncate_pagecache_range()Hugh Dickins2-1/+41
Holepunching filesystems ext4 and xfs are using truncate_inode_pages_range but forgetting to unmap pages first (ocfs2 remembers). This is not really a bug, since races already require truncate_inode_page() to handle that case once the page is locked; but it can be very inefficient if the file being punched happens to be mapped into many vmas. Provide a drop-in replacement truncate_pagecache_range() which does the unmapping pass first, handling the awkward mismatch between arguments to truncate_inode_pages_range() and arguments to unmap_mapping_range(). Note that holepunching does not unmap privately COWed pages in the range: POSIX requires that we do so when truncating, but it's hard to justify, difficult to implement without an i_size cutoff, and no filesystem is attempting to implement it.

Pull "Disintegrate and delete asm/system.h" from David Howells: "Here are a bunch of patches to disintegrate asm/system.h into a set of separate bits to relieve the problem of circular inclusion dependencies. I've built all the working defconfigs from all the arches that I can and made sure that they don't break. The reason for these patches is that I recently encountered a circular dependency problem that came about when I produced some patches to optimise get_order() by rewriting it to use ilog2(). This uses bitops - and on the SH arch asm/bitops.h drags in asm-generic/get_order.h by a circuituous route involving asm/system.h. The main difficulty seems to be asm/system.h. It holds a number of low level bits with no/few dependencies that are commonly used (eg. memory barriers) and a number of bits with more dependencies that aren't used in many places (eg. switch_to()). These patches break asm/system.h up into the following core pieces: (1) asm/barrier.h Move memory barriers here. This already done for MIPS and Alpha. (2) asm/switch_to.h Move switch_to() and related stuff here. (3) asm/exec.h Move arch_align_stack() here. Other process execution related bits could perhaps go here from asm/processor.h. (4) asm/cmpxchg.h Move xchg() and cmpxchg() here as they're full word atomic ops and frequently used by atomic_xchg() and atomic_cmpxchg(). (5) asm/bug.h Move die() and related bits. (6) asm/auxvec.h Move AT_VECTOR_SIZE_ARCH here. Other arch headers are created as needed on a per-arch basis." Fixed up some conflicts from other header file cleanups and moving code around that has happened in the meantime, so David's testing is somewhat weakened by that. We'll find out anything that got broken and fix it.. * tag 'split-asm_system_h-for-linus-20120328' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/dhowells/linux-asm_system: (38 commits) Delete all instances of asm/system.h Remove all #inclusions of asm/system.h Add #includes needed to permit the removal of asm/system.h Move all declarations of free_initmem() to linux/mm.h Disintegrate asm/system.h for OpenRISC Split arch_align_stack() out from asm-generic/system.h Split the switch_to() wrapper out of asm-generic/system.h Move the asm-generic/system.h xchg() implementation to asm-generic/cmpxchg.h Create asm-generic/barrier.h Make asm-generic/cmpxchg.h #include asm-generic/cmpxchg-local.h Disintegrate asm/system.h for Xtensa Disintegrate asm/system.h for Unicore32 [based on ver #3, changed by gxt] Disintegrate asm/system.h for Tile Disintegrate asm/system.h for Sparc Disintegrate asm/system.h for SH Disintegrate asm/system.h for Score Disintegrate asm/system.h for S390 Disintegrate asm/system.h for PowerPC Disintegrate asm/system.h for PA-RISC Disintegrate asm/system.h for MN10300 ...
