2012-04-25init: fix bug where environment vars can't be passed via boot argsChris Metcalf1-12/+13
Commit 026cee0086f had the side-effect of dropping the '=' from the unknown boot arguments that are passed to init as environment variables. This is because parse_args() puts a NUL in the string where the '=' was when it passes the "param" and "val" pointers to the parsing subfunctions. Previously, unknown_bootoption() was the last parse_args() subfunction to run, and it carefully put back the '=' character. Now the ignore_unknown_bootoption() is the last one to run, and it wasn't doing the necessary repair, so the envp params ended up with the embedded NUL and were no longer seen as valid environment variables by init.

2012-03-26params: <level>_initcall-like kernel parametersPawel Moll1-6/+59
This patch adds a set of macros that can be used to declare kernel parameters to be parsed _before_ initcalls at a chosen level are executed. We rename the now-unused "flags" field of struct kernel_param as the level. It's signed, for when we use this for early params as well, in future. Linker macro collating init calls had to be modified in order to add additional symbols between levels that are later used by the init code to split the calls into blocks.

2011-09-29bootup: move 'usermodehelper_enable()' a little earlierwangyanqing1-1/+1
Commit d5767c53535a ("bootup: move 'usermodehelper_enable()' to the end of do_basic_setup()") moved 'usermodehelper_enable()' to end of do_basic_setup() to after the initcalls. But then I get failed to let uvesafb work on my computer, and lose the splash boot. So maybe we could start usermodehelper_enable a little early to make some task work that need eary init with the help of user mode. [ I would *really* prefer that initcalls not call into user space - even the real 'init' hasn't been execve'd yet, after all! But for uvesafb it really does look like we don't have much choice. I considered doing this when we mount the root filesystem, but depending on config options that is in multiple places. We could do the usermode helper enable as a rootfs_initcall().. So I'm just using wang yanqing's trivial patch. It's not wonderful, but it's simple and should work. We should revisit this some day, though. - Linus ] Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2011-09-28bootup: move 'usermodehelper_enable()' to the end of do_basic_setup()Linus Torvalds1-3/+1
Doing it just before starting to call into cpu_idle() made a sick kind of sense only because the original bug we fixed (see commit 288d5abec831: "Boot up with usermodehelper disabled") was about problems with some scheduler data structures not being initialized, and they had better be initialized at that point. But it really didn't make any other conceptual sense, and doing it after the initial "schedule()" call for the idle thread actually opened up a race: what if the main initialization thread did everything without needing to sleep, and got all the way into user land too? Without actually having scheduled back to the idle thread? Now, in normal circumstances that doesn't ever happen, but it looks like Richard Cochran triggered exactly that on his ARM IXP4xx machines: "I have some ARM IXP4xx based machines that use the two on chip MAC ports (aka NPEs). The NPE needs a firmware in order to function. Ever since the following commit [that 288d5abec831 one], it is no longer possible to bring up the interfaces during the init scripts." with a call trace showing an ioctl coming from user space. Richard says: "The init is busybox, and the startup script does mount, syslogd, and then ifup, so that all can go by quickly." The fix is to move the usermodehelper_enable() into the main 'init' thread, and just put it after we've done all our initcalls. By then, everything really should be up, but we've obviously not actually started the user-mode portion of init yet.

2011-08-03Boot up with usermodehelper disabledLinus Torvalds1-1/+4
The core device layer sends tons of uevent notifications for each device it finds, and if the kernel has been built with a non-empty CONFIG_UEVENT_HELPER_PATH that will make us try to execute the usermode helper binary for all these events very early in the boot. Not only won't the root filesystem even be mounted at that point, we literally won't have necessarily even initialized all the process handling data structures at that point, which causes no end of silly problems even when the usermode helper doesn't actually succeed in executing. So just use our existing infrastructure to disable the usermodehelpers to make the kernel start out with them disabled. We enable them when we've at least initialized stuff a bit.

2011-06-17generic-ipi: Fix kexec boot crash by initializing call_single_queue before enabling interruptsTakao Indoh1-0/+1
There is a problem that kdump(2nd kernel) sometimes hangs up due to a pending IPI from 1st kernel. Kernel panic occurs because IPI comes before call_single_queue is initialized. To fix the crash, rename init_call_single_data() to call_function_init() and call it in start_kernel() so that call_single_queue can be initialized before enabling interrupts. The details of the crash are: (1) 2nd kernel boots up (2) A pending IPI from 1st kernel comes when irqs are first enabled in start_kernel(). (3) Kernel tries to handle the interrupt, but call_single_queue is not initialized yet at this point. As a result, in the generic_smp_call_function_single_interrupt(), NULL pointer dereference occurs when list_replace_init() tries to access &q->list.next. Therefore this patch changes the name of init_call_single_data() to call_function_init() and calls it before local_irq_enable() in start_kernel().

2011-05-25mm: convert mm->cpu_vm_cpumask into cpumask_var_tKOSAKI Motohiro1-0/+2
cpumask_t is very big struct and cpu_vm_mask is placed wrong position. It might lead to reduce cache hit ratio. This patch has two change. 1) Move the place of cpumask into last of mm_struct. Because usually cpumask is accessed only front bits when the system has cpu-hotplug capability 2) Convert cpu_vm_mask into cpumask_var_t. It may help to reduce memory footprint if cpumask_size() will use nr_cpumask_bits properly in future. In addition, this patch change the name of cpu_vm_mask with cpu_vm_mask_var.

During early boot, local IRQ is disabled until IRQ subsystem is properly initialized. During this time, no one should enable local IRQ and some operations which usually are not allowed with IRQ disabled, e.g. operations which might sleep or require communications with other processors, are allowed. lockdep tracked this with early_boot_irqs_off/on() callbacks. As other subsystems need this information too, move it to init/main.c and make it generally available. While at it, toggle the boolean to early_boot_irqs_disabled instead of enabled so that it can be initialized with %false and %true indicates the exceptional condition.

2010-12-24init: don't call flush_scheduled_work() from do_initcalls()Tejun Heo1-3/+0
The call to flush_scheduled_work() in do_initcalls() is there to make sure all works queued to system_wq by initcalls finish before the init sections are dropped. However, the call doesn't make much sense at this point - there already are multiple different workqueues and different subsystems are free to create and use their own. Ordering requirements are and should be expressed explicitly. Drop the call to prepare for the deprecation and removal of flush_scheduled_work(). Andrew suggested adding sanity check where the workqueue code checks whether any pending or running work has the work function in the init text section. However, checking this for running works requires the worker to keep track of the current function being executed, and checking only the pending works will miss most cases. As a violation will almost always be caught by the usual page fault mechanism, I don't think it would be worthwhile to make the workqueue code track extra state just for this.

Make do_execve() take a const filename pointer so that kernel_execve() compiles correctly on ARM: arch/arm/kernel/sys_arm.c:88: warning: passing argument 1 of 'do_execve' discards qualifiers from pointer target type This also requires the argv and envp arguments to be consted twice, once for the pointer array and once for the strings the array points to. This is because do_execve() passes a pointer to the filename (now const) to copy_strings_kernel(). A simpler alternative would be to cast the filename pointer in do_execve() when it's passed to copy_strings_kernel(). do_execve() may not change any of the strings it is passed as part of the argv or envp lists as they are some of them in .rodata, so marking these strings as const should be fine.

Mark init_workqueues() as early_initcall() and thus it will be initialized before smp bringup. init_workqueues() registers for the hotcpu notifier and thus it should cope with the processors that are brought online after the workqueues are initialized. x86 smp bringup code uses workqueues and uses a workaround for the cold boot process (as the workqueues are initialized post smp_init()). Marking init_workqueues() as early_initcall() will pave the way for cleaning up this code.

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...

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.
