This patch enhances the "mvmdio" to support a SMI error/done interrupt line which can be used along with a wait queue instead of doing busy-waiting on the registers. This is a feature which is available in the mv643xx_eth SMI code and thus reduces again the gap between the two. Signed-off-by: Florian Fainelli <florian@openwrt.org> Signed-off-by: David S.

2013-03-21tcp: implement RFC5682 F-RTOYuchung Cheng1-12/+6
This patch implements F-RTO (foward RTO recovery): When the first retransmission after timeout is acknowledged, F-RTO sends new data instead of old data. If the next ACK acknowledges some never-retransmitted data, then the timeout was spurious and the congestion state is reverted. Otherwise if the next ACK selectively acknowledges the new data, then the timeout was genuine and the loss recovery continues. This idea applies to recurring timeouts as well. While F-RTO sends different data during timeout recovery, it does not (and should not) change the congestion control. The implementaion follows the three steps of SACK enhanced algorithm (section 3) in RFC5682. Step 1 is in tcp_enter_loss(). Step 2 and 3 are in tcp_process_loss(). The basic version is not supported because SACK enhanced version also works for non-SACK connections. The new implementation is functionally in parity with the old F-RTO implementation except the one case where it increases undo events: In addition to the RFC algorithm, a spurious timeout may be detected without sending data in step 2, as long as the SACK confirms not all the original data are dropped. When this happens, the sender will undo the cwnd and perhaps enter fast recovery instead. This additional check increases the F-RTO undo events by 5x compared to the prior implementation on Google Web servers, since the sender often does not have new data to send for HTTP. Note F-RTO may detect spurious timeout before Eifel with timestamps does so.

2013-03-21tcp: refactor F-RTOYuchung Cheng1-17/+0
The patch series refactor the F-RTO feature (RFC4138/5682). This is to simplify the loss recovery processing. Existing F-RTO was developed during the experimental stage (RFC4138) and has many experimental features. It takes a separate code path from the traditional timeout processing by overloading CA_Disorder instead of using CA_Loss state. This complicates CA_Disorder state handling because it's also used for handling dubious ACKs and undos. While the algorithm in the RFC does not change the congestion control, the implementation intercepts congestion control in various places (e.g., frto_cwnd in tcp_ack()). The new code implements newer F-RTO RFC5682 using CA_Loss processing path. F-RTO becomes a small extension in the timeout processing and interfaces with congestion control and Eifel undo modules. It lets congestion control (module) determines how many to send independently. F-RTO only chooses what to send in order to detect spurious retranmission. If timeout is found spurious it invokes existing Eifel undo algorithms like DSACK or TCP timestamp based detection. The first patch removes all F-RTO code except the sysctl_tcp_frto is left for the new implementation. Since CA_EVENT_FRTO is removed, TCP westwood now computes ssthresh on regular timeout CA_EVENT_LOSS event.

2013-03-19ipvs: add backup_only flag to avoid loopsJulian Anastasov1-0/+7
Dmitry Akindinov is reporting for a problem where SYNs are looping between the master and backup server when the backup server is used as real server in DR mode and has IPVS rules to function as director. Even when the backup function is enabled we continue to forward traffic and schedule new connections when the current master is using the backup server as real server. While this is not a problem for NAT, for DR and TUN method the backup server can not determine if a request comes from client or from director. To avoid such loops add new sysctl flag backup_only. It can be needed for DR/TUN setups that do not need backup and director function at the same time. When the backup function is enabled we stop any forwarding and pass the traffic to the local stack (real server mode). The flag disables the director function when the backup function is enabled. For setups that enable backup function for some virtual services and director function for other virtual services there should be another more complex solution to support DR/TUN mode, may be to assign per-virtual service syncid value, so that we can differentiate the requests.

2013-03-13batman-adv: network coding - add the initial infrastructure codeMartin Hundebøll1-0/+8
Network coding exploits the 802.11 shared medium to allow multiple packets to be sent in a single transmission. In brief, a relay can XOR two packets, and send the coded packet to two destinations. The receivers can decode one of the original packets by XOR'ing the coded packet with the other original packet. This will lead to increased throughput in topologies where two packets cross one relay. In a simple topology with three nodes, it takes four transmissions without network coding to get one packet from Node A to Node B and one from Node B to Node A: 1. Node A ---- p1 ---> Node R Node B 2. Node A Node R <--- p2 ---- Node B 3. Node A <--- p2 ---- Node R Node B 4. Node A Node R ---- p1 ---> Node B With network coding, the relay only needs one transmission, which saves us one slot of valuable airtime: 1. Node A ---- p1 ---> Node R Node B 2. Node A Node R <--- p2 ---- Node B 3. Node A <- p1 x p2 - Node R - p1 x p2 -> Node B The same principle holds for a topology including five nodes. Here the packets from Node A and Node B are overheard by Node C and Node D, respectively. This allows Node R to send a network coded packet to save one transmission: Node A Node B | \ / | | p1 p2 | | \ / | p1 > Node R < p2 | | | / \ | | p1 x p2 p1 x p2 | v / \ v / \ Node C < > Node D More information is available on the open-mesh.org wiki[1]. This patch adds the initial code to support network coding in batman-adv. It sets up a worker thread to do house keeping and adds a sysfs file to enable/disable network coding. The feature is disabled by default, as it requires a wifi-driver with working promiscuous mode, and also because it adds a small delay at each hop.

2013-03-12tcp: Tail loss probe (TLP)Nandita Dukkipati1-2/+6
This patch series implement the Tail loss probe (TLP) algorithm described in http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-dukkipati-tcpm-tcp-loss-probe-01. The first patch implements the basic algorithm. TLP's goal is to reduce tail latency of short transactions. It achieves this by converting retransmission timeouts (RTOs) occuring due to tail losses (losses at end of transactions) into fast recovery. TLP transmits one packet in two round-trips when a connection is in Open state and isn't receiving any ACKs. The transmitted packet, aka loss probe, can be either new or a retransmission. When there is tail loss, the ACK from a loss probe triggers FACK/early-retransmit based fast recovery, thus avoiding a costly RTO. In the absence of loss, there is no change in the connection state. PTO stands for probe timeout. It is a timer event indicating that an ACK is overdue and triggers a loss probe packet. The PTO value is set to max(2*SRTT, 10ms) and is adjusted to account for delayed ACK timer when there is only one oustanding packet. TLP Algorithm On transmission of new data in Open state: -> packets_out > 1: schedule PTO in max(2*SRTT, 10ms). -> packets_out == 1: schedule PTO in max(2*RTT, 1.5*RTT + 200ms) -> PTO = min(PTO, RTO) Conditions for scheduling PTO: -> Connection is in Open state. -> Connection is either cwnd limited or no new data to send. -> Number of probes per tail loss episode is limited to one. -> Connection is SACK enabled. When PTO fires: new_segment_exists: -> transmit new segment. -> packets_out++. cwnd remains same. no_new_packet: -> retransmit the last segment. Its ACK triggers FACK or early retransmit based recovery. ACK path: -> rearm RTO at start of ACK processing. -> reschedule PTO if need be. In addition, the patch includes a small variation to the Early Retransmit (ER) algorithm, such that ER and TLP together can in principle recover any N-degree of tail loss through fast recovery. TLP is controlled by the same sysctl as ER, tcp_early_retrans sysctl. tcp_early_retrans==0; disables TLP and ER. ==1; enables RFC5827 ER. ==2; delayed ER. ==3; TLP and delayed ER. [DEFAULT] ==4; TLP only. The TLP patch series have been extensively tested on Google Web servers. It is most effective for short Web trasactions, where it reduced RTOs by 15% and improved HTTP response time (average by 6%, 99th percentile by 10%). The transmitted probes account for <0.5% of the overall transmissions.

Need to consider sequence is: numaq, srat, amd, dummy. and make fall back path working. 2. simply split acpi_numa_init to early_parse_srat. a. that early_parse_srat is NOT called for ia64, so you break ia64. b. for (i = 0; i < MAX_LOCAL_APIC; i++) set_apicid_to_node(i, NUMA_NO_NODE) still left in numa_init. So it will just clear result from early_parse_srat. it should be moved before that.... c. it breaks ACPI_TABLE_OVERIDE...as the acpi table scan is moved early before override from INITRD is settled. 3. that patch TITLE is total misleading, there is NO x86 in the title, but it changes critical x86 code. It caused x86 guys did not pay attention to find the problem early. Those patches really should be routed via tip/x86/mm. 4. after that commit, following range can not use movable ram: a. real_mode code.... well..funny, legacy Node0 [0,1M) could be hot-removed? b. initrd... it will be freed after booting, so it could be on movable... c. crashkernel for kdump...: looks like we can not put kdump kernel above 4G anymore. d. init_mem_mapping: can not put page table high anymore. e. initmem_init: vmemmap can not be high local node anymore. That is not good. If node is hotplugable, the mem related range like page table and vmemmap could be on the that node without problem and should be on that node. We have workaround patch that could fix some problems, but some can not be fixed. So just remove that offending commit and related ones including: f7210e6c4ac7 ("mm/memblock.c: use CONFIG_HAVE_MEMBLOCK_NODE_MAP to protect movablecore_map in memblock_overlaps_region().") 01a178a94e8e ("acpi, memory-hotplug: support getting hotplug info from SRAT") 27168d38fa20 ("acpi, memory-hotplug: extend movablemem_map ranges to the end of node") e8d195525809 ("acpi, memory-hotplug: parse SRAT before memblock is ready") fb06bc8e5f42 ("page_alloc: bootmem limit with movablecore_map") 42f47e27e761 ("page_alloc: make movablemem_map have higher priority") 6981ec31146c ("page_alloc: introduce zone_movable_limit[] to keep movable limit for nodes") 34b71f1e04fc ("page_alloc: add movable_memmap kernel parameter") 4d59a75125d5 ("x86: get pg_data_t's memory from other node") Later we should have patches that will make sure kernel put page table and vmemmap on local node ram instead of push them down to node0. Also need to find way to put other kernel used ram to local node ram.
