2016-07-31r8169: fix nic may not work after changing mac address.Chun-Hao Lin1-1/+8
When there is no AC power, NIC may not work after changing mac address. Please refer to following link. http://www.spinics.net/lists/netdev/msg356572.html This issue is caused by runtime power management. When there is no AC power, if we put NIC down (ifconfig down), the driver will be in runtime suspend state and hardware will be put into D3 state. During this time, driver cannot access hardware regisers. So if you set new mac address during this time, it will not be set to hardware. After resume, NIC will keep using the old mac address and the network will not work normally. In this patch I add detecting runtime pm status when setting mac address. If driver is in runtime suspend state, it will skip setting mac address, keep the new mac address, and set the new mac address during runtime resume.

2016-07-31r8169: fix kernel log spam when set or get hardware wol setting.Chun-Hao Lin1-2/+18
NIC will be put into D3 state during runtime suspend state. When set or get hardware wol setting, driver will write or read hardware registers. If we set or get hardware wol setting in runtime suspend state, because NIC will in D3 state, the hardware registers read by driver will return all 0xff. That will let driver thinking register flag is not toggled and then prints the warning message "rtl_counters_cond == 1 (loop: 1000, delay: 10)" to kernel log.

2016-07-30macsec: RXSAs don't need to hold a reference on RXSCsSabrina Dubroca1-2/+1
Following the previous patch, RXSCs are held and properly refcounted in the RX path (instead of being implicitly held by their SA), so the SA doesn't need to hold a reference on its parent RXSC. This also avoids panics on module unload caused by the double layer of RCU callbacks (call_rcu frees the RXSA, which puts the final reference on the RXSC and allows to free it in its own call_rcu) that commit b196c22af5c3 ("macsec: add rcu_barrier() on module exit") didn't protect against. There were also some refcounting bugs in macsec_add_rxsa where I didn't put the reference on the RXSC on the error paths, which would lead to memory leaks.

The commit 637d3e997351 ("cxgb4: Discard the packet if the length is greater than mtu") introduced a regression in the VLAN interface performance when Tx VLAN offload is disabled. Check if skb is tagged, regardless of whether it is hardware accelerated or not. Presently we were checking only for hardware acclereated one, which caused performance to drop to ~0.17Mbps on a 10GbE adapter for VLAN interface, when tx vlan offload is turned off using ethtool. The ethernet head length calculation was going wrong in this case, and driver ended up dropping packets.

2016-07-30qed: Prevent over-usage of vlan credits by PFYuval Mintz1-1/+8
Each PF/VF has a limited number of vlan filters for configuration purposes; This information is passed to qede and is used to prevent over-usage - once a vlan is to be configured and no filter credit is available, the driver would switch into working in vlan-promisc mode. Problem is the credit pool is shared by both PFs and VFs, and currently PFs aren't deducting the filters that are reserved for their VFs from their quota, which may lead to some vlan filters failing unknowingly due to lack of credit.

2016-07-30qede: Don't try removing unconfigured vlansYuval Mintz1-4/+7
As part of ndo_vlan_rx_kill_vid() implementation, qede is requesting firmware to remove the vlan filter. This currently happens even if the vlan wasn't previously added [In case device ran out of vlan credits]. For PFs this doesn't cause any issues as the firmware would simply ignore the removal request. But for VFs their parent PF is holding an accounting of the configured vlans, and such a request would cause the PF to fail the VF's removal request. Simply fix this for both PFs & VFs and don't remove filters that were not previously added.

Pull userns vfs updates from Eric Biederman: "This tree contains some very long awaited work on generalizing the user namespace support for mounting filesystems to include filesystems with a backing store. The real world target is fuse but the goal is to update the vfs to allow any filesystem to be supported. This patchset is based on a lot of code review and testing to approach that goal. While looking at what is needed to support the fuse filesystem it became clear that there were things like xattrs for security modules that needed special treatment. That the resolution of those concerns would not be fuse specific. That sorting out these general issues made most sense at the generic level, where the right people could be drawn into the conversation, and the issues could be solved for everyone. At a high level what this patchset does a couple of simple things: - Add a user namespace owner (s_user_ns) to struct super_block. - Teach the vfs to handle filesystem uids and gids not mapping into to kuids and kgids and being reported as INVALID_UID and INVALID_GID in vfs data structures. By assigning a user namespace owner filesystems that are mounted with only user namespace privilege can be detected. This allows security modules and the like to know which mounts may not be trusted. This also allows the set of uids and gids that are communicated to the filesystem to be capped at the set of kuids and kgids that are in the owning user namespace of the filesystem. One of the crazier corner casees this handles is the case of inodes whose i_uid or i_gid are not mapped into the vfs. Most of the code simply doesn't care but it is easy to confuse the inode writeback path so no operation that could cause an inode write-back is permitted for such inodes (aka only reads are allowed). This set of changes starts out by cleaning up the code paths involved in user namespace permirted mounts. Then when things are clean enough adds code that cleanly sets s_user_ns. Then additional restrictions are added that are possible now that the filesystem superblock contains owner information. These changes should not affect anyone in practice, but there are some parts of these restrictions that are changes in behavior. - Andy's restriction on suid executables that does not honor the suid bit when the path is from another mount namespace (think /proc/[pid]/fd/) or when the filesystem was mounted by a less privileged user. - The replacement of the user namespace implicit setting of MNT_NODEV with implicitly setting SB_I_NODEV on the filesystem superblock instead. Using SB_I_NODEV is a stronger form that happens to make this state user invisible. The user visibility can be managed but it caused problems when it was introduced from applications reasonably expecting mount flags to be what they were set to. There is a little bit of work remaining before it is safe to support mounting filesystems with backing store in user namespaces, beyond what is in this set of changes. - Verifying the mounter has permission to read/write the block device during mount. - Teaching the integrity modules IMA and EVM to handle filesystems mounted with only user namespace root and to reduce trust in their security xattrs accordingly. - Capturing the mounters credentials and using that for permission checks in d_automount and the like. (Given that overlayfs already does this, and we need the work in d_automount it make sense to generalize this case). Furthermore there are a few changes that are on the wishlist: - Get all filesystems supporting posix acls using the generic posix acls so that posix_acl_fix_xattr_from_user and posix_acl_fix_xattr_to_user may be removed. [Maintainability] - Reducing the permission checks in places such as remount to allow the superblock owner to perform them. - Allowing the superblock owner to chown files with unmapped uids and gids to something that is mapped so the files may be treated normally. I am not considering even obvious relaxations of permission checks until it is clear there are no more corner cases that need to be locked down and handled generically.

Pull libnvdimm updates from Dan Williams: - Replace pcommit with ADR / directed-flushing. The pcommit instruction, which has not shipped on any product, is deprecated. Instead, the requirement is that platforms implement either ADR, or provide one or more flush addresses per nvdimm. ADR (Asynchronous DRAM Refresh) flushes data in posted write buffers to the memory controller on a power-fail event. Flush addresses are defined in ACPI 6.x as an NVDIMM Firmware Interface Table (NFIT) sub-structure: "Flush Hint Address Structure".

2016-07-28mm: track NR_KERNEL_STACK in KiB instead of number of stacksAndy Lutomirski1-2/+1
Currently, NR_KERNEL_STACK tracks the number of kernel stacks in a zone. This only makes sense if each kernel stack exists entirely in one zone, and allowing vmapped stacks could break this assumption. Since frv has THREAD_SIZE < PAGE_SIZE, we need to track kernel stack allocations in a unit that divides both THREAD_SIZE and PAGE_SIZE on all architectures. Keep it simple and use KiB.

2016-07-28mm: move most file-based accounting to the nodeMel Gorman3-12/+14
There are now a number of accounting oddities such as mapped file pages being accounted for on the node while the total number of file pages are accounted on the zone. This can be coped with to some extent but it's confusing so this patch moves the relevant file-based accounted. Due to throttling logic in the page allocator for reliable OOM detection, it is still necessary to track dirty and writeback pages on a per-zone basis.

2016-07-28mm, vmscan: move LRU lists to nodeMel Gorman2-13/+14
This moves the LRU lists from the zone to the node and related data such as counters, tracing, congestion tracking and writeback tracking. Unfortunately, due to reclaim and compaction retry logic, it is necessary to account for the number of LRU pages on both zone and node logic. Most reclaim logic is based on the node counters but the retry logic uses the zone counters which do not distinguish inactive and active sizes. It would be possible to leave the LRU counters on a per-zone basis but it's a heavier calculation across multiple cache lines that is much more frequent than the retry checks. Other than the LRU counters, this is mostly a mechanical patch but note that it introduces a number of anomalies. For example, the scans are per-zone but using per-node counters. We also mark a node as congested when a zone is congested. This causes weird problems that are fixed later but is easier to review. In the event that there is excessive overhead on 32-bit systems due to the nodes being on LRU then there are two potential solutions 1. Long-term isolation of highmem pages when reclaim is lowmem When pages are skipped, they are immediately added back onto the LRU list. If lowmem reclaim persisted for long periods of time, the same highmem pages get continually scanned. The idea would be that lowmem keeps those pages on a separate list until a reclaim for highmem pages arrives that splices the highmem pages back onto the LRU. It potentially could be implemented similar to the UNEVICTABLE list. That would reduce the skip rate with the potential corner case is that highmem pages have to be scanned and reclaimed to free lowmem slab pages. 2. Linear scan lowmem pages if the initial LRU shrink fails This will break LRU ordering but may be preferable and faster during memory pressure than skipping LRU pages.

2016-07-28mm, vmstat: add infrastructure for per-node vmstatsMel Gorman1-35/+41
Patchset: "Move LRU page reclaim from zones to nodes v9" This series moves LRUs from the zones to the node. While this is a current rebase, the test results were based on mmotm as of June 23rd. Conceptually, this series is simple but there are a lot of details. Some of the broad motivations for this are; 1. The residency of a page partially depends on what zone the page was allocated from. This is partially combatted by the fair zone allocation policy but that is a partial solution that introduces overhead in the page allocator paths. 2. Currently, reclaim on node 0 behaves slightly different to node 1. For example, direct reclaim scans in zonelist order and reclaims even if the zone is over the high watermark regardless of the age of pages in that LRU. Kswapd on the other hand starts reclaim on the highest unbalanced zone. A difference in distribution of file/anon pages due to when they were allocated results can result in a difference in again. While the fair zone allocation policy mitigates some of the problems here, the page reclaim results on a multi-zone node will always be different to a single-zone node. it was scheduled on as a result. 3. kswapd and the page allocator scan zones in the opposite order to avoid interfering with each other but it's sensitive to timing. This mitigates the page allocator using pages that were allocated very recently in the ideal case but it's sensitive to timing. When kswapd is allocating from lower zones then it's great but during the rebalancing of the highest zone, the page allocator and kswapd interfere with each other. It's worse if the highest zone is small and difficult to balance. 4. slab shrinkers are node-based which makes it harder to identify the exact relationship between slab reclaim and LRU reclaim. The reason we have zone-based reclaim is that we used to have large highmem zones in common configurations and it was necessary to quickly find ZONE_NORMAL pages for reclaim. Today, this is much less of a concern as machines with lots of memory will (or should) use 64-bit kernels. Combinations of 32-bit hardware and 64-bit hardware are rare. Machines that do use highmem should have relatively low highmem:lowmem ratios than we worried about in the past. Conceptually, moving to node LRUs should be easier to understand. The page allocator plays fewer tricks to game reclaim and reclaim behaves similarly on all nodes. The series has been tested on a 16 core UMA machine and a 2-socket 48 core NUMA machine. The UMA results are presented in most cases as the NUMA machine behaved similarly. pagealloc --------- This is a microbenchmark that shows the benefit of removing the fair zone allocation policy.

The primary metric is checking for mmap latency. stutter 4.7.0-rc4 4.7.0-rc4 mmotm-20160623 nodelru-v8 Min mmap 16.6283 ( 0.00%) 13.4258 ( 19.26%) 1st-qrtle mmap 54.7570 ( 0.00%) 34.9121 ( 36.24%) 2nd-qrtle mmap 57.3163 ( 0.00%) 46.1147 ( 19.54%) 3rd-qrtle mmap 58.9976 ( 0.00%) 47.1882 ( 20.02%) Max-90% mmap 59.7433 ( 0.00%) 47.4453 ( 20.58%) Max-93% mmap 60.1298 ( 0.00%) 47.6037 ( 20.83%) Max-95% mmap 73.4112 ( 0.00%) 82.8719 (-12.89%) Max-99% mmap 92.8542 ( 0.00%) 88.8870 ( 4.27%) Max mmap 1440.6569 ( 0.00%) 121.4201 ( 91.57%) Mean mmap 59.3493 ( 0.00%) 42.2991 ( 28.73%) Best99%Mean mmap 57.2121 ( 0.00%) 41.8207 ( 26.90%) Best95%Mean mmap 55.9113 ( 0.00%) 39.9620 ( 28.53%) Best90%Mean mmap 55.6199 ( 0.00%) 39.3124 ( 29.32%) Best50%Mean mmap 53.2183 ( 0.00%) 33.1307 ( 37.75%) Best10%Mean mmap 45.9842 ( 0.00%) 20.4040 ( 55.63%) Best5%Mean mmap 43.2256 ( 0.00%) 17.9654 ( 58.44%) Best1%Mean mmap 32.9388 ( 0.00%) 16.6875 ( 49.34%) This shows a number of improvements with the worst-case outlier greatly improved.

It's also worth noting that no page writes were issued from reclaim context. This series is not without its hazards. There are at least three areas that I'm concerned with even though I could not reproduce any problems in that area. 1. Reclaim/compaction is going to be affected because the amount of reclaim is no longer targetted at a specific zone. Compaction works on a per-zone basis so there is no guarantee that reclaiming a few THP's worth page pages will have a positive impact on compaction success rates. 2. The Slab/LRU reclaim ratio is affected because the frequency the shrinkers are called is now different. This may or may not be a problem but if it is, it'll be because shrinkers are not called enough and some balancing is required. 3. The anon/file reclaim ratio may be affected. Pages about to be dirtied are distributed between zones and the fair zone allocation policy used to do something very similar for anon. The distribution is now different but not necessarily in any way that matters but it's still worth bearing in mind. VM statistic counters for reclaim decisions are zone-based. If the kernel is to reclaim on a per-node basis then we need to track per-node statistics but there is no infrastructure for that. The most notable change is that the old node_page_state is renamed to sum_zone_node_page_state. The new node_page_state takes a pglist_data and uses per-node stats but none exist yet. There is some renaming such as vm_stat to vm_zone_stat and the addition of vm_node_stat and the renaming of mod_state to mod_zone_state. Otherwise, this is mostly a mechanical patch with no functional change. There is a lot of similarity between the node and zone helpers which is unfortunate but there was no obvious way of reusing the code and maintaining type safety.

2016-07-28Merge branch 'salted-string-hash'Linus Torvalds1-3/+5
This changes the vfs dentry hashing to mix in the parent pointer at the _beginning_ of the hash, rather than at the end. That actually improves both the hash and the code generation, because we can move more of the computation to the "static" part of the dcache setup, and do less at lookup runtime. It turns out that a lot of other hash users also really wanted to mix in a base pointer as a 'salt' for the hash, and so the slightly extended interface ends up working well for other cases too. Users that want a string hash that is purely about the string pass in a 'salt' pointer of NULL. * merge branch 'salted-string-hash': fs/dcache.c: Save one 32-bit multiply in dcache lookup vfs: make the string hashes salt the hash
