2006-03-23[PATCH] __GENERIC_PER_CPU changesEric Dumazet1-6/+2
Now CONFIG_DEBUG_INITDATA is in, initial percpu data [__per_cpu_start,__per_cpu_end] can be declared as a redzone, and invalid accesses after boot can be detected, at least for i386. We can let non possible cpus percpu data point to this 'redzone' instead of NULL . NULL was not a good choice because part of [0..32768] memory may be readable and invalid accesses may happen unnoticed. If CONFIG_DEBUG_INITDATA is not defined, each non possible cpu points to the initial percpu data (__per_cpu_offset[cpu] == 0), thus invalid accesses wont be detected/crash. This patch also moves __per_cpu_offset[] to read_mostly area to avoid false sharing.

2006-03-23[PATCH] more for_each_cpu() conversionsAndrew Morton42-222/+137
When we stop allocating percpu memory for not-possible CPUs we must not touch the percpu data for not-possible CPUs at all. The correct way of doing this is to test cpu_possible() or to use for_each_cpu(). This patch is a kernel-wide sweep of all instances of NR_CPUS. I found very few instances of this bug, if any. But the patch converts lots of open-coded test to use the preferred helper macros.

2006-03-23[PATCH] Only allocate percpu data for possible CPUsEric Dumazet1-3/+8
percpu_data blindly allocates bootmem memory to store NR_CPUS instances of cpudata, instead of allocating memory only for possible cpus. This patch saves ram, allocating num_possible_cpus() (instead of NR_CPUS) instances. Signed-off-by: Eric Dumazet <dada1@cosmosbay.com> Acked-by: "David S.

2006-03-23[PATCH] get_empty_filp tweaks, inline epoll_init_file()Benjamin LaHaise3-15/+12
Eliminate a handful of cache references by keeping current in a register instead of reloading (helps x86) and avoiding the overhead of a function call. Inlining eventpoll_init_file() saves 24 bytes. Also reorder file initialization to make writes occur more sequentially.

Without branch hints, the very unlikely chance of the loop repeating due to cmpxchg failure is unrolled with gcc-4 that I have tested. Improve this for architectures with a native cas/cmpxchg. llsc archs should try to implement this natively.

2006-03-23[PATCH] pause_on_oops command line optionAndrew Morton5-17/+130
Attempt to fix the problem wherein people's oops reports scroll off the screen due to repeated oopsing or to oopses on other CPUs. If this happens the user can reboot with the `pause_on_oops=<seconds>' option. It will allow the first oopsing CPU to print an oops record just a single time. Second oopsing attempts, or oopses on other CPUs will cause those CPUs to enter a tight loop until the specified number of seconds have elapsed. The patch implements the infrastructure generically in the expectation that architectures other than x86 will find it useful.
