2010-06-28init, sched: Fix race between init and kthreaddPeter Zijlstra1-0/+12
Ilya reported that on a very slow machine he could reliably reproduce a race between forking init and kthreadd. We first fork init so that it obtains pid-1, however since the scheduler is already fully running at this point it can preempt and run the init thread before we spawn and set kthreadd_task. The init thread can then attempt spawning kthreads without kthreadd being present which results in an OOPS.

2010-06-27percpu: allow limited allocation before slab is onlineTejun Heo1-0/+1
This patch updates percpu allocator such that it can serve limited amount of allocation before slab comes online. This is primarily to allow slab to depend on working percpu allocator. Two parameters, PERCPU_DYNAMIC_EARLY_SIZE and SLOTS, determine how much memory space and allocation map slots are reserved. If this reserved area is exhausted, WARN_ON_ONCE() will trigger and allocation will fail till slab comes online. The following changes are made to implement early alloc. * pcpu_mem_alloc() now checks slab_is_available() * Chunks are allocated using pcpu_mem_alloc() * Init paths make sure ai->dyn_size is at least as large as PERCPU_DYNAMIC_EARLY_SIZE. * Initial alloc maps are allocated in __initdata and copied to kmalloc'd areas once slab is online.

2010-06-09ACPI: Do not try to set up acpi processor stuff on cores exceeding maxcpus=Thomas Renninger1-1/+3
Patch is against latest Linus master branch and is expected to be safe bug fix. You get: ACPI: HARDWARE addr space,NOT supported yet for each ACPI defined CPU which status is active, but exceeds maxcpus= count. As these "not booted" CPUs do not run an idle routine and echo X >/proc/acpi/processor/*/throttling did not work I couldn't find a way to really access not onlined/booted machines. Still this should get fixed and /proc/acpi/processor/X dirs of cores exceeding maxcpus should not show up. I wonder whether this could get cleaned up by truncating possible cpu mask and nr_cpu_ids to setup_max_cpus early some day (and not exporting setup_max_cpus anymore then). But this needs touching of a lot other places...

For each new populated zone of hotadded node, need to update its pagesets with dynamically allocated per_cpu_pageset struct for all possible CPUs: 1) Detach zone->pageset from the shared boot_pageset at end of __build_all_zonelists(). 2) Use mutex to protect zone->pageset when it's still shared in onlined_pages() Otherwises, multiple zones of different nodes would share same boot strapping boot_pageset for same CPU, which will finally cause below kernel panic: ------------[ cut here ]------------ kernel BUG at mm/page_alloc.c:1239! invalid opcode: 0000 [#1] SMP ...

2010-05-20x86, kgdb, init: Add early and late debug statesJason Wessel1-2/+2
The kernel debugger can operate well before mm_init(), but the x86 hardware breakpoint code which uses the perf api requires that the kernel allocators are initialized. This means the kernel debug core needs to provide an optional arch specific call back to allow the initialization functions to run after the kernel has been further initialized. The kdb shell already had a similar restriction with an early initialization and late initialization. The kdb_init() was moved into the debug core's version of the late init which is called dbg_late_init(); CC: kgdb-bugreport@lists.sourceforge.net Signed-off-by: Jason Wessel <jason.wessel@windriver.com>

2010-03-30include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking implicit slab.h inclusion from percpu.hTejun Heo1-1/+1
percpu.h is included by sched.h and module.h and thus ends up being included when building most .c files. percpu.h includes slab.h which in turn includes gfp.h making everything defined by the two files universally available and complicating inclusion dependencies. percpu.h -> slab.h dependency is about to be removed. Prepare for this change by updating users of gfp and slab facilities include those headers directly instead of assuming availability. As this conversion needs to touch large number of source files, the following script is used as the basis of conversion. http://userweb.kernel.org/~tj/misc/slabh-sweep.py The script does the followings. * Scan files for gfp and slab usages and update includes such that only the necessary includes are there. ie. if only gfp is used, gfp.h, if slab is used, slab.h. * When the script inserts a new include, it looks at the include blocks and try to put the new include such that its order conforms to its surrounding. It's put in the include block which contains core kernel includes, in the same order that the rest are ordered - alphabetical, Christmas tree, rev-Xmas-tree or at the end if there doesn't seem to be any matching order. * If the script can't find a place to put a new include (mostly because the file doesn't have fitting include block), it prints out an error message indicating which .h file needs to be added to the file. The conversion was done in the following steps. 1. The initial automatic conversion of all .c files updated slightly over 4000 files, deleting around 700 includes and adding ~480 gfp.h and ~3000 slab.h inclusions. The script emitted errors for ~400 files. 2. Each error was manually checked. Some didn't need the inclusion, some needed manual addition while adding it to implementation .h or embedding .c file was more appropriate for others. This step added inclusions to around 150 files. 3. The script was run again and the output was compared to the edits from #2 to make sure no file was left behind. 4. Several build tests were done and a couple of problems were fixed. e.g. lib/decompress_*.c used malloc/free() wrappers around slab APIs requiring slab.h to be added manually. 5. The script was run on all .h files but without automatically editing them as sprinkling gfp.h and slab.h inclusions around .h files could easily lead to inclusion dependency hell. Most gfp.h inclusion directives were ignored as stuff from gfp.h was usually wildly available and often used in preprocessor macros. Each slab.h inclusion directive was examined and added manually as necessary. 6. percpu.h was updated not to include slab.h. 7. Build test were done on the following configurations and failures were fixed. CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL was turned off for all tests (as my distributed build env didn't work with gcov compiles) and a few more options had to be turned off depending on archs to make things build (like ipr on powerpc/64 which failed due to missing writeq). * x86 and x86_64 UP and SMP allmodconfig and a custom test config. * powerpc and powerpc64 SMP allmodconfig * sparc and sparc64 SMP allmodconfig * ia64 SMP allmodconfig * s390 SMP allmodconfig * alpha SMP allmodconfig * um on x86_64 SMP allmodconfig 8. percpu.h modifications were reverted so that it could be applied as a separate patch and serve as bisection point. Given the fact that I had only a couple of failures from tests on step 6, I'm fairly confident about the coverage of this conversion patch. If there is a breakage, it's likely to be something in one of the arch headers which should be easily discoverable easily on most builds of the specific arch.

2010-03-03init: Open /dev/console from rootfsEric W. Biederman1-5/+6
To avoid potential problems with an empty /dev open /dev/console from rootfs instead of waiting to mount our root filesystem and mounting it there. This effectively guarantees that there will be a device node, and it won't be on a filesystem that we will ever unmount, so there are no issues with leaving /dev/console open and pinning the filesystem. This is actually more effective than automatically mounting devtmpfs on /dev because it removes removes the occasionally problematic assumption that /dev/console exists from the boot code. With this patch I was able to throw busybox on my /boot partition (which has no /dev directory) and boot into userspace without problems. The only possible negative consequence I can think of is that someone out there deliberately used did not use a character device that is major 5 minor 2 for /dev/console.

2009-09-22mm: replace various uses of num_physpages by totalram_pagesJan Beulich1-2/+2
Sizing of memory allocations shouldn't depend on the number of physical pages found in a system, as that generally includes (perhaps a huge amount of) non-RAM pages. The amount of what actually is usable as storage should instead be used as a basis here. Some of the calculations (i.e. those not intending to use high memory) should likely even use (totalram_pages - totalhigh_pages).

2009-09-15Driver Core: devtmpfs - kernel-maintained tmpfs-based /devKay Sievers1-0/+2
Devtmpfs lets the kernel create a tmpfs instance called devtmpfs very early at kernel initialization, before any driver-core device is registered. Every device with a major/minor will provide a device node in devtmpfs. Devtmpfs can be changed and altered by userspace at any time, and in any way needed - just like today's udev-mounted tmpfs. Unmodified udev versions will run just fine on top of it, and will recognize an already existing kernel-created device node and use it. The default node permissions are root:root 0600. Proper permissions and user/group ownership, meaningful symlinks, all other policy still needs to be applied by userspace. If a node is created by devtmps, devtmpfs will remove the device node when the device goes away. If the device node was created by userspace, or the devtmpfs created node was replaced by userspace, it will no longer be removed by devtmpfs. If it is requested to auto-mount it, it makes init=/bin/sh work without any further userspace support. /dev will be fully populated and dynamic, and always reflect the current device state of the kernel. With the commonly used dynamic device numbers, it solves the problem where static devices nodes may point to the wrong devices. It is intended to make the initial bootup logic simpler and more robust, by de-coupling the creation of the inital environment, to reliably run userspace processes, from a complex userspace bootstrap logic to provide a working /dev.

2009-08-27init: Move sched_clock_init after late_time_initThomas Gleixner1-1/+1
Some architectures initialize clocks and timers in late_time_init and x86 wants to do the same to avoid FIXMAP hackery for calibrating the TSC. That would result in undefined sched_clock readout and wreckaged printk timestamps again. We probably have those already on archs which do all their time/clock setup in late_time_init. There is no harm to move that after late_time_init except that a few more boot timestamps are stale. The scheduler is not active at that point so no real wreckage is expected.

2009-06-24percpu: use dynamic percpu allocator as the default percpu allocatorTejun Heo1-24/+0
This patch makes most !CONFIG_HAVE_SETUP_PER_CPU_AREA archs use dynamic percpu allocator. The first chunk is allocated using embedding helper and 8k is reserved for modules. This ensures that the new allocator behaves almost identically to the original allocator as long as static percpu variables are concerned, so it shouldn't introduce much breakage. s390 and alpha use custom SHIFT_PERCPU_PTR() to work around addressing range limit the addressing model imposes. Unfortunately, this breaks if the address is specified using a variable, so for now, the two archs aren't converted. The following architectures are affected by this change. * sh * arm * cris * mips * sparc(32) * blackfin * avr32 * parisc (broken, under investigation) * m32r * powerpc(32) As this change makes the dynamic allocator the default one, CONFIG_HAVE_DYNAMIC_PER_CPU_AREA is replaced with its invert - CONFIG_HAVE_LEGACY_PER_CPU_AREA, which is added to yet-to-be converted archs. These archs implement their own setup_per_cpu_areas() and the conversion is not trivial. * powerpc(64) * sparc(64) * ia64 * alpha * s390 Boot and batch alloc/free tests on x86_32 with debug code (x86_32 doesn't use default first chunk initialization). Compile tested on sparc(32), powerpc(32), arm and alpha. Kyle McMartin reported that this change breaks parisc. The problem is still under investigation and he is okay with pushing this patch forward and fixing parisc later.

SLAB uses get/put_online_cpus() which use a mutex which is itself only initialized when cpu_hotplug_init() is called. Currently we hang suring boot in SLAB due to doing that too late.

2009-06-16mm: Move pgtable_cache_init() earlierBenjamin Herrenschmidt1-1/+1
Some architectures need to initialize SLAB caches to be able to allocate page tables. They do that from pgtable_cache_init() so the later should be called earlier now, best is before vmalloc_init().
