2008-01-25Preempt-RCU: implementationPaul E. McKenney1-0/+28
This patch implements a new version of RCU which allows its read-side critical sections to be preempted. It uses a set of counter pairs to keep track of the read-side critical sections and flips them when all tasks exit read-side critical section. The details of this implementation can be found in this paper - http://www.rdrop.com/users/paulmck/RCU/OLSrtRCU.2006.08.11a.pdf and the article- http://lwn.net/Articles/253651/ This patch was developed as a part of the -rt kernel development and meant to provide better latencies when read-side critical sections of RCU don't disable preemption. As a consequence of keeping track of RCU readers, the readers have a slight overhead (optimizations in the paper). This implementation co-exists with the "classic" RCU implementations and can be switched to at compiler. Also includes RCU tracing summarized in debugfs.

This patch implements a Refcount + Waitqueue based model for cpu-hotplug. Now, a thread which wants to prevent cpu-hotplug, will bump up a global refcount and the thread which wants to perform a cpu-hotplug operation will block till the global refcount goes to zero.

2007-12-02sched: cpu accounting controller (V2)Srivatsa Vaddagiri1-0/+7
Commit cfb5285660aad4931b2ebbfa902ea48a37dfffa1 removed a useful feature for us, which provided a cpu accounting resource controller. This feature would be useful if someone wants to group tasks only for accounting purpose and doesnt really want to exercise any control over their cpu consumption. The patch below reintroduces the feature. It is based on Paul Menage's original patch (Commit 62d0df64065e7c135d0002f069444fbdfc64768f), with these differences: - Removed load average information. I felt it needs more thought (esp to deal with SMP and virtualized platforms) and can be added for 2.6.25 after more discussions. - Convert group cpu usage to be nanosecond accurate (as rest of the cfs stats are) and invoke cpuacct_charge() from the respective scheduler classes - Make accounting scalable on SMP systems by splitting the usage counter to be per-cpu - Move the code from kernel/cpu_acct.c to kernel/sched.c (since the code is not big enough to warrant a new file and also this rightly needs to live inside the scheduler. Also things like accessing rq->lock while reading cpu usage becomes easier if the code lived in kernel/sched.c) The patch also modifies the cpu controller not to provide the same accounting information. Tested-by: Balbir Singh <balbir@linux.vnet.ibm.com> Tested the patches on top of 2.6.24-rc3. The patches work fine.

2007-11-14pidns: Place under CONFIG_EXPERIMENTALEric W. Biederman1-0/+12
This is my trivial patch to swat innumerable little bugs with a single blow. After some intensive review (my apologies for not having gotten to this sooner) what we have looks like a good base to build on with the current pid namespace code but it is not complete, and it is still much to simple to find issues where the kernel does the wrong thing outside of the initial pid namespace. Until the dust settles and we are certain we have the ABI and the implementation is as correct as humanly possible let's keep process ID namespaces behind CONFIG_EXPERIMENTAL. Allowing us the option of fixing any ABI or other bugs we find as long as they are minor. Allowing users of the kernel to avoid those bugs simply by ensuring their kernel does not have support for multiple pid namespaces.

2007-11-14revert "Task Control Groups: example CPU accounting subsystem"Andrew Morton1-7/+0
Revert 62d0df64065e7c135d0002f069444fbdfc64768f. This was originally intended as a simple initial example of how to create a control groups subsystem; it wasn't intended for mainline, but I didn't make this clear enough to Andrew. The CFS cgroup subsystem now has better functionality for the per-cgroup usage accounting (based directly on CFS stats) than the "usage" status file in this patch, and the "load" status file is rather simplistic - although having a per-cgroup load average report would be a useful feature, I don't believe this patch actually provides it. If it gets into the final 2.6.24 we'd probably have to support this interface for ever.

2007-10-21[PATCH] audit: watching subtreesAl Viro1-0/+4
New kind of audit rule predicates: "object is visible in given subtree". The part that can be sanely implemented, that is. Limitations: * if you have hardlink from outside of tree, you'd better watch it too (or just watch the object itself, obviously) * if you mount something under a watched tree, tell audit that new chunk should be added to watched subtrees * if you umount something in a watched tree and it's still mounted elsewhere, you will get matches on events happening there. New command tells audit to recalculate the trees, trimming such sources of false positives. Note that it's _not_ about path - if something mounted in several places (multiple mount, bindings, different namespaces, etc.), the match does _not_ depend on which one we are using for access.

2007-10-19cgroups: implement namespace tracking subsystemSerge E. Hallyn1-7/+16
When a task enters a new namespace via a clone() or unshare(), a new cgroup is created and the task moves into it. This version names cgroups which are automatically created using cgroup_clone() as "node_<pid>" where pid is the pid of the unsharing or cloned process. (Thanks Pavel for the idea) This is safe because if the process unshares again, it will create /cgroups/(...)/node_<pid>/node_<pid> The only possibilities (AFAICT) for a -EEXIST on unshare are 1. pid wraparound 2. a process fails an unshare, then tries again. Case 1 is unlikely enough that I ignore it (at least for now). In case 2, the node_<pid> will be empty and can be rmdir'ed to make the subsequent unshare() succeed.

2007-10-19Task Control Groups: basic task cgroup frameworkPaul Menage2-0/+11
Generic Process Control Groups -------------------------- There have recently been various proposals floating around for resource management/accounting and other task grouping subsystems in the kernel, including ResGroups, User BeanCounters, NSProxy cgroups, and others. These all need the basic abstraction of being able to group together multiple processes in an aggregate, in order to track/limit the resources permitted to those processes, or control other behaviour of the processes, and all implement this grouping in different ways. This patchset provides a framework for tracking and grouping processes into arbitrary "cgroups" and assigning arbitrary state to those groupings, in order to control the behaviour of the cgroup as an aggregate. The intention is that the various resource management and virtualization/cgroup efforts can also become task cgroup clients, with the result that: - the userspace APIs are (somewhat) normalised - it's easier to test e.g. the ResGroups CPU controller in conjunction with the BeanCounters memory controller, or use either of them as the resource-control portion of a virtual server system. - the additional kernel footprint of any of the competing resource management systems is substantially reduced, since it doesn't need to provide process grouping/containment, hence improving their chances of getting into the kernel This patch: Add the main task cgroups framework - the cgroup filesystem, and the basic structures for tracking membership and associating subsystem state objects to tasks.

Patch was tested on following architectures: alpha, arm, i386, x86_64, mips, sparc, sparc64, ia64, m68k Test was simple to do a defconfig build, apply the patch and check that nothing got rebuild.

2007-09-19disable sys_timerfd() for 2.6.23Andrew Morton1-0/+1
There is still some confusion and disagreement over what this interface should actually do. So it is best that we disable it in 2.6.23 until we get that fully sorted out. (sys_timerfd() was present in 2.6.22 but it was apparently broken, so here we assume that nobody is using it yet).

2007-09-19Fix failure to resume from initrdsNigel Cunningham1-1/+3
Commit 831441862956fffa17b9801db37e6ea1650b0f69 (Freezer: make kernel threads nonfreezable by default) breaks freezing when attempting to resume from an initrd, because the init (which is freezeable) spins while waiting for another thread to run /linuxrc, but doesn't check whether it has been told to enter the refrigerator. The original patch replaced a call to try_to_freeze() with a call to yield(). I believe a simple reversion is wrong because if !CONFIG_PM_SLEEP, try_to_freeze() is a noop. It should still yield.

2007-08-30fix maxcpus=1 oops in show_stat()Hugh Dickins1-8/+0
Alexey Dobriyan reports that maxcpus=1 is still broken in 2.6.23-rc4: if CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU is not set, x86_64 bootup oopses in show_stat() - for_each_possible_cpu accesses a per-cpu area which was never set up. Alexey identified commit 61ec7567db103d537329b0db9a887db570431ff4 (ACPI: boot correctly with "nosmp" or "maxcpus=0") as the origin; but it's not really to blame, just exposes a bug in 2.6.23-rc1's commit 8b3b295502444340dd0701855ac422fbf32e161d (Especially when !CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU, avoid needlessy allocating resources for CPUs that can never become available). rc1's test for max_cpus < 2 in start_kernel() wasn't working because max_cpus was still NR_CPUS at that point: until rc4 moved the maxcpus parsing earlier. Now it sets cpu_possible_map to 1 before allocating all possible per-cpu areas; then smp_init() expands cpu_possible_map to cpu_present_map (0xf in my case) later on. rc1's commit has good intentions, but expects cpu_present_map to be limited by maxcpus, which is only the case on i386. cpus_and(possible, possible,present) might be good, but needs an audit of cpu_present_map uses - there may well be assumptions that any cpu present is possible. So stay safe for now and just revert those #ifndef CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU optimizations in rc1's commit.

2007-08-27fix maxcpus=N parsingHugh Dickins1-1/+1
Commit 61ec7567db103d537329b0db9a887db570431ff4 ('ACPI: boot correctly with "nosmp" or "maxcpus=0"') broke 'maxcpus=' handling on x86[-64]. maxcpus=N is now having no effect on x86_64, and freezing bootup on i386 (because of inconsistency with the separate maxcpus parsing down in arch/i386, I guess). That's because early_param parsing is a little different from __setup parsing, and needs the "=" omitted: then it seems to work as the original commit intended (no mention of IO-APIC in /proc/interrupts when maxcpus=0).

2007-07-17Freezer: make kernel threads nonfreezable by defaultRafael J. Wysocki1-5/+2
Currently, the freezer treats all tasks as freezable, except for the kernel threads that explicitly set the PF_NOFREEZE flag for themselves. This approach is problematic, since it requires every kernel thread to either set PF_NOFREEZE explicitly, or call try_to_freeze(), even if it doesn't care for the freezing of tasks at all. It seems better to only require the kernel threads that want to or need to be frozen to use some freezer-related code and to remove any freezer-related code from the other (nonfreezable) kernel threads, which is done in this patch. The patch causes all kernel threads to be nonfreezable by default (ie. to have PF_NOFREEZE set by default) and introduces the set_freezable() function that should be called by the freezable kernel threads in order to unset PF_NOFREEZE. It also makes all of the currently freezable kernel threads call set_freezable(), so it shouldn't cause any (intentional) change of behaviour to appear. Additionally, it updates documentation to describe the freezing of tasks more accurately. [akpm@linux-foundation.org: build fixes] Signed-off-by: Rafael J.

2007-07-16user namespace: add the frameworkCedric Le Goater1-0/+9
Basically, it will allow a process to unshare its user_struct table, resetting at the same time its own user_struct and all the associated accounting. A new root user (uid == 0) is added to the user namespace upon creation. Such root users have full privileges and it seems that theses privileges should be controlled through some means (process capabilities ?) The unshare is not included in this patch. Changes since [try #4]: - Updated get_user_ns and put_user_ns to accept NULL, and get_user_ns to return the namespace. Changes since [try #3]: - moved struct user_namespace to files user_namespace.{c,h} Changes since [try #2]: - removed struct user_namespace* argument from find_user() Changes since [try #1]: - removed struct user_namespace* argument from find_user() - added a root_user per user namespace Signed-off-by: Cedric Le Goater <clg@fr.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Serge E.
