2011-07-29cpupowerutils - cpufrequtils extended with quite some featuresDominik Brodowski73-0/+14423
CPU power consumption vs performance tuning is no longer limited to CPU frequency switching anymore: deep sleep states, traditional dynamic frequency scaling and hidden turbo/boost frequencies are tied close together and depend on each other. The first two exist on different architectures like PPC, Itanium and ARM, the latter (so far) only on X86. On X86 the APU (CPU+GPU) will only run most efficiently if CPU and GPU has proper power management in place. Users and Developers want to have *one* tool to get an overview what their system supports and to monitor and debug CPU power management in detail. The tool should compile and work on as many architectures as possible. Once this tool stabilizes a bit, it is intended to replace the Intel-specific tools in tools/power/x86 Signed-off-by: Dominik Brodowski <linux@dominikbrodowski.net>

2011-07-20signal: align __lock_task_sighand() irq disabling and RCUPaul E. McKenney1-6/+13
The __lock_task_sighand() function calls rcu_read_lock() with interrupts and preemption enabled, but later calls rcu_read_unlock() with interrupts disabled. It is therefore possible that this RCU read-side critical section will be preempted and later RCU priority boosted, which means that rcu_read_unlock() will call rt_mutex_unlock() in order to deboost itself, but with interrupts disabled. This results in lockdep splats, so this commit nests the RCU read-side critical section within the interrupt-disabled region of code. This prevents the RCU read-side critical section from being preempted, and thus prevents the attempt to deboost with interrupts disabled. It is quite possible that a better long-term fix is to make rt_mutex_unlock() disable irqs when acquiring the rt_mutex structure's ->wait_lock. Signed-off-by: Paul E.

2011-07-20softirq,rcu: Inform RCU of irq_exit() activityPeter Zijlstra2-3/+11
The rcu_read_unlock_special() function relies on in_irq() to exclude scheduler activity from interrupt level. This fails because exit_irq() can invoke the scheduler after clearing the preempt_count() bits that in_irq() uses to determine that it is at interrupt level. This situation can result in failures as follows: $task IRQ SoftIRQ rcu_read_lock() /* do stuff */ <preempt> |= UNLOCK_BLOCKED rcu_read_unlock() --t->rcu_read_lock_nesting irq_enter(); /* do stuff, don't use RCU */ irq_exit(); sub_preempt_count(IRQ_EXIT_OFFSET); invoke_softirq() ttwu(); spin_lock_irq(&pi->lock) rcu_read_lock(); /* do stuff */ rcu_read_unlock(); rcu_read_unlock_special() rcu_report_exp_rnp() ttwu() spin_lock_irq(&pi->lock) /* deadlock */ rcu_read_unlock_special(t); Ed can simply trigger this 'easy' because invoke_softirq() immediately does a ttwu() of ksoftirqd/# instead of doing the in-place softirq stuff first, but even without that the above happens. Cure this by also excluding softirqs from the rcu_read_unlock_special() handler and ensuring the force_irqthreads ksoftirqd/# wakeup is done from full softirq context. [ Alternatively, delaying the ->rcu_read_lock_nesting decrement until after the special handling would make the thing more robust in the face of interrupts as well. And there is a separate patch for that. ] Cc: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de> Reported-and-tested-by: Ed Tomlinson <edt@aei.ca> Signed-off-by: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Signed-off-by: Paul E.

2011-07-20sched: Add irq_{enter,exit}() to scheduler_ipi()Peter Zijlstra1-6/+38
Ensure scheduler_ipi() calls irq_{enter,exit} when it does some actual work. Traditionally we never did any actual work from the resched IPI and all magic happened in the return from interrupt path. Now that we do do some work, we need to ensure irq_{enter,exit} are called so that we don't confuse things. This affects things like timekeeping, NO_HZ and RCU, basically everything with a hook in irq_enter/exit. Explicit examples of things going wrong are: sched_clock_cpu() -- has a callback when leaving NO_HZ state to take a new reading from GTOD and TSC. Without this callback, time is stuck in the past. RCU -- needs in_irq() to work in order to avoid some nasty deadlocks Signed-off-by: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Signed-off-by: Paul E. McKenney <paulmck@linux.vnet.ibm.com>
2011-07-20rcu: protect __rcu_read_unlock() against scheduler-using irq handlersPaul E. McKenney1-5/+24
The addition of RCU read-side critical sections within runqueue and priority-inheritance lock critical sections introduced some deadlock cycles, for example, involving interrupts from __rcu_read_unlock() where the interrupt handlers call wake_up(). This situation can cause the instance of __rcu_read_unlock() invoked from interrupt to do some of the processing that would otherwise have been carried out by the task-level instance of __rcu_read_unlock(). When the interrupt-level instance of __rcu_read_unlock() is called with a scheduler lock held from interrupt-entry/exit situations where in_irq() returns false, deadlock can result. This commit resolves these deadlocks by using negative values of the per-task ->rcu_read_lock_nesting counter to indicate that an instance of __rcu_read_unlock() is in flight, which in turn prevents instances from interrupt handlers from doing any special processing. This patch is inspired by Steven Rostedt's earlier patch that similarly made __rcu_read_unlock() guard against interrupt-mediated recursion (see https://lkml.org/lkml/2011/7/15/326), but this commit refines Steven's approach to avoid the need for preemption disabling on the __rcu_read_unlock() fastpath and to also avoid the need for manipulating a separate per-CPU variable. This patch avoids need for preempt_disable() by instead using negative values of the per-task ->rcu_read_lock_nesting counter. Note that nested rcu_read_lock()/rcu_read_unlock() pairs are still permitted, but they will never see ->rcu_read_lock_nesting go to zero, and will therefore never invoke rcu_read_unlock_special(), thus preventing them from seeing the RCU_READ_UNLOCK_BLOCKED bit should it be set in ->rcu_read_unlock_special. This patch also adds a check for ->rcu_read_unlock_special being negative in rcu_check_callbacks(), thus preventing the RCU_READ_UNLOCK_NEED_QS bit from being set should a scheduling-clock interrupt occur while __rcu_read_unlock() is exiting from an outermost RCU read-side critical section. Of course, __rcu_read_unlock() can be preempted during the time that ->rcu_read_lock_nesting is negative. This could result in the setting of the RCU_READ_UNLOCK_BLOCKED bit after __rcu_read_unlock() checks it, and would also result it this task being queued on the corresponding rcu_node structure's blkd_tasks list. Therefore, some later RCU read-side critical section would enter rcu_read_unlock_special() to clean up -- which could result in deadlock if that critical section happened to be in the scheduler where the runqueue or priority-inheritance locks were held. This situation is dealt with by making rcu_preempt_note_context_switch() check for negative ->rcu_read_lock_nesting, thus refraining from queuing the task (and from setting RCU_READ_UNLOCK_BLOCKED) if we are already exiting from the outermost RCU read-side critical section (in other words, we really are no longer actually in that RCU read-side critical section). In addition, rcu_preempt_note_context_switch() invokes rcu_read_unlock_special() to carry out the cleanup in this case, which clears out the ->rcu_read_unlock_special bits and dequeues the task (if necessary), in turn avoiding needless delay of the current RCU grace period and needless RCU priority boosting. It is still illegal to call rcu_read_unlock() while holding a scheduler lock if the prior RCU read-side critical section has ever had either preemption or irqs enabled. However, the common use case is legal, namely where then entire RCU read-side critical section executes with irqs disabled, for example, when the scheduler lock is held across the entire lifetime of the RCU read-side critical section.

2011-07-20sched: Avoid creating superfluous NUMA domains on non-NUMA systemsPeter Zijlstra1-0/+2
When creating sched_domains, stop when we've covered the entire target span instead of continuing to create domains, only to later find they're redundant and throw them away again.

2011-07-20sched: Allow for overlapping sched_domain spansPeter Zijlstra3-29/+132
Allow for sched_domain spans that overlap by giving such domains their own sched_group list instead of sharing the sched_groups amongst each-other. This is needed for machines with more than 16 nodes, because sched_domain_node_span() will generate a node mask from the 16 nearest nodes without regard if these masks have any overlap. Currently sched_domains have a sched_group that maps to their child sched_domain span, and since there is no overlap we share the sched_group between the sched_domains of the various CPUs. If however there is overlap, we would need to link the sched_group list in different ways for each cpu, and hence sharing isn't possible. In order to solve this, allocate private sched_groups for each CPU's sched_domain but have the sched_groups share a sched_group_power structure such that we can uniquely track the power.

2011-07-19vmscan: fix a livelock in kswapdShaohua Li1-1/+2
I'm running a workload which triggers a lot of swap in a machine with 4 nodes. After I kill the workload, I found a kswapd livelock. Sometimes kswapd3 or kswapd2 are keeping running and I can't access filesystem, but most memory is free. This looks like a regression since commit 08951e545918c159 ("mm: vmscan: correct check for kswapd sleeping in sleeping_prematurely"). Node 2 and 3 have only ZONE_NORMAL, but balance_pgdat() will return 0 for classzone_idx. The reason is end_zone in balance_pgdat() is 0 by default, if all zones have watermark ok, end_zone will keep 0. Later sleeping_prematurely() always returns true. Because this is an order 3 wakeup, and if classzone_idx is 0, both balanced_pages and present_pages in pgdat_balanced() are 0. We add a special case here. If a zone has no page, we think it's balanced. This fixes the livelock.

2011-07-19rcu: Fix RCU_BOOST race handling current->rcu_read_unlock_specialPaul E. McKenney2-2/+9
The RCU_BOOST commits for TREE_PREEMPT_RCU introduced an other-task write to a new RCU_READ_UNLOCK_BOOSTED bit in the task_struct structure's ->rcu_read_unlock_special field, but, as noted by Steven Rostedt, without correctly synchronizing all accesses to ->rcu_read_unlock_special. This could result in bits in ->rcu_read_unlock_special being spuriously set and cleared due to conflicting accesses, which in turn could result in deadlocks between the rcu_node structure's ->lock and the scheduler's rq and pi locks. These deadlocks would result from RCU incorrectly believing that the just-ended RCU read-side critical section had been preempted and/or boosted. If that RCU read-side critical section was executed with either rq or pi locks held, RCU's ensuing (incorrect) calls to the scheduler would cause the scheduler to attempt to once again acquire the rq and pi locks, resulting in deadlock. More complex deadlock cycles are also possible, involving multiple rq and pi locks as well as locks from multiple rcu_node structures. This commit fixes synchronization by creating ->rcu_boosted field in task_struct that is accessed and modified only when holding the ->lock in the rcu_node structure on which the task is queued (on that rcu_node structure's ->blkd_tasks list). This results in tasks accessing only their own current->rcu_read_unlock_special fields, making unsynchronized access once again legal, and keeping the rcu_read_unlock() fastpath free of atomic instructions and memory barriers. The reason that the rcu_read_unlock() fastpath does not need to access the new current->rcu_boosted field is that this new field cannot be non-zero unless the RCU_READ_UNLOCK_BLOCKED bit is set in the current->rcu_read_unlock_special field. Therefore, rcu_read_unlock() need only test current->rcu_read_unlock_special: if that is zero, then current->rcu_boosted must also be zero. This bug does not affect TINY_PREEMPT_RCU because this implementation of RCU accesses current->rcu_read_unlock_special with irqs disabled, thus preventing races on the !SMP systems that TINY_PREEMPT_RCU runs on.

PREEMPT_RCU read-side critical sections blocking an expedited grace period invoke rcu_report_exp_rnp(). When the last such critical section has completed, rcu_report_exp_rnp() invokes the scheduler to wake up the task that invoked synchronize_rcu_expedited() -- needlessly holding the root rcu_node structure's lock while doing so, thus needlessly providing a way for RCU and the scheduler to deadlock.

2011-07-18drm/i915: Fix unfenced alignment on pre-G33 hardwareChris Wilson3-38/+41
Align unfenced buffers on older hardware to the power-of-two object size. The docs suggest that it should be possible to align only to a power-of-two tile height, but using the already computed fence size is easier and always correct. We also have to make sure that we unbind misaligned buffers upon tiling changes. In order to prevent a repetition of this bug, we change the interface to the alignment computation routines to force the caller to provide the requested alignment and size of the GTT binding rather than assume the current values on the object.
