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.

2011-07-25init: skip calibration delay if previously doneSameer Nanda1-1/+10
For each CPU, do the calibration delay only once. For subsequent calls, use the cached per-CPU value of loops_per_jiffy. This saves about 200ms of resume time on dual core Intel Atom N5xx based systems. This helps bring down the kernel resume time on such systems from about 500ms to about 300ms.

2011-06-23Fix CPU spinlock lockups on secondary CPU bringupRussell King1-6/+8
Secondary CPU bringup typically calls calibrate_delay() during its initialization. However, calibrate_delay() modifies a global variable (loops_per_jiffy) used for udelay() and __delay(). A side effect of 71c696b1 ("calibrate: extract fall-back calculation into own helper") introduced in the 2.6.39 merge window means that we end up with a substantial period where loops_per_jiffy is zero. This causes the spinlock debugging code to malfunction: u64 loops = loops_per_jiffy * HZ; for (;;) { for (i = 0; i < loops; i++) { if (arch_spin_trylock(&lock->raw_lock)) return; __delay(1); } ... } by never calling arch_spin_trylock() - resulting in the CPU locking up in an infinite loop inside __spin_lock_debug(). Work around this by only writing to loops_per_jiffy only once we have completed all the calibration decisions.

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().

2011-06-15gcov: disable CONFIG_CONSTRUCTORS when not needed by CONFIG_GCOV_KERNELJosh Triplett1-1/+0
CONFIG_CONSTRUCTORS controls support for running constructor functions at kernel init time. According to commit b99b87f70c7785ab ("kernel: constructor support"), gcov (CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL) needs this. However, CONFIG_CONSTRUCTORS currently defaults to y, with no option to disable it, and CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL depends on it. Instead, default it to n and have CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL select it, so that the normal case of CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL=n will result in CONFIG_CONSTRUCTORS=n. Observed in the short list of =y values in a minimal kernel configuration.

2011-06-15uts: make default hostname configurable, rather than always using "(none)"Josh Triplett1-0/+9
The "hostname" tool falls back to setting the hostname to "localhost" if /etc/hostname does not exist. Distribution init scripts have the same fallback. However, if userspace never calls sethostname, such as when booting with init=/bin/sh, or otherwise booting a minimal system without the usual init scripts, the default hostname of "(none)" remains, unhelpfully appearing in various places such as prompts ("root@(none):~#") and logs. Furthermore, "(none)" doesn't typically resolve to anything useful. Make the default hostname configurable. This removes the need for the standard fallback, provides a useful default for systems that never call sethostname, and makes minimal systems that much more useful with less configuration. Distributions could choose to use "localhost" here to avoid the fallback, while embedded systems may wish to use a specific target hostname.

Embedded users might want to turn those options off to save space; however, turning them off requires turning on CONFIG_DEBUG_KERNEL to unhide them.

2011-05-26cgroup: remove the ns_cgroupDaniel Lezcano1-8/+0
The ns_cgroup is an annoying cgroup at the namespace / cgroup frontier and leads to some problems: * cgroup creation is out-of-control * cgroup name can conflict when pids are looping * it is not possible to have a single process handling a lot of namespaces without falling in a exponential creation time * we may want to create a namespace without creating a cgroup The ns_cgroup was replaced by a compatibility flag 'clone_children', where a newly created cgroup will copy the parent cgroup values. The userspace has to manually create a cgroup and add a task to the 'tasks' file. This patch removes the ns_cgroup as suggested in the following thread: https://lists.linux-foundation.org/pipermail/containers/2009-June/018616.html The 'cgroup_clone' function is removed because it is no longer used. This is a userspace-visible change. Commit 45531757b45c ("cgroup: notify ns_cgroup deprecated") (merged into 2.6.27) caused the kernel to emit a printk warning users that the feature is planned for removal.

2011-05-25init/calibrate.c: fix for critical bogoMIPS intermittent calculation failureAndrew Worsley1-6/+69
A fix to the TSC (Time Stamp Counter) based bogoMIPS calculation used on secondary CPUs which has two faults: 1: Not handling wrapping of the lower 32 bits of the TSC counter on 32bit kernel - perhaps TSC is not reset by a warm reset? 2: TSC and Jiffies are no incrementing together properly. Either jiffies increment too quickly or Time Stamp Counter isn't incremented in during an SMI but the real time clock is and jiffies are incremented. Case 1 can result in a factor of 16 too large a value which makes udelay() values too small and can cause mysterious driver errors. Case 2 appears to give smaller 10-15% errors after averaging but enough to cause occasional failures on my own board I have tested this code on my own branch and attach patch suitable for current kernel code. See below for examples of the failures and how the fix handles these situations now. I reported this issue earlier here: Intermittent problem with BogoMIPs calculation on Intel AP CPUs - http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=129947246316875&w=4 I suspect this issue has been seen by others but as it is intermittent and bogoMIPS for secondary CPUs are no longer printed out it might have been difficult to identify this as the cause. Perhaps these unresolved issues, although quite old, might be relevant as possibly this fault has been around for a while. In particular Case 1 may only be relevant to 32bit kernels on newer HW (most people run 64bit kernels?). Case 2 is less dramatic since the earlier fix in this area and also intermittent. Re: bogomips discrepancy on Intel Core2 Quad CPU - http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=118929277524298&w=4 slow system and bogus bogomips - http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=116791286716107&w=4 Re: Re: [RFC-PATCH] clocksource: update lpj if clocksource has - http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=128952775819467&w=4 This issue is masked a little by commit feae3203d711db0a ("timers, init: Limit the number of per cpu calibration bootup messages") which only prints out the first bogoMIPS value making it much harder to notice other values differing. Perhaps it should be changed to only suppress them when they are similar values? Here are some outputs showing faults occurring and the new code handling them properly.

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. It may help to detect out of tree cpu_vm_mask users. This patch has no functional change.

I still happen to believe that I$ miss costs are a major thing, but sadly, -Os doesn't seem to be the solution. With or without it, gcc will miss some obvious code size improvements, and with it enabled gcc will sometimes make choices that aren't good even with high I$ miss ratios. For example, with -Os, gcc on x86 will turn a 20-byte constant memcpy into a "rep movsl". While I sincerely hope that x86 CPU's will some day do a good job at that, they certainly don't do it yet, and the cost is higher than a L1 I$ miss would be. Some day I hope we can re-enable this.

2011-04-22[PARISC] slub: fix panic with DISCONTIGMEMJames Bottomley1-0/+1
Slub makes assumptions about page_to_nid() which are violated by DISCONTIGMEM and !NUMA. This violation results in a panic because page_to_nid() can be non-zero for pages in the discontiguous ranges and this leads to a null return by get_node(). The assertion by the maintainer is that DISCONTIGMEM should only be allowed when NUMA is also defined. However, at least six architectures: alpha, ia64, m32r, m68k, mips, parisc violate this. The panic is a regression against slab, so just mark slub broken in the problem configuration to prevent users reporting these panics.

2011-04-15kbuild: move KALLSYMS_EXTRA_PASS from Kconfig to MakefileArtem Bityutskiy1-12/+0
At the moment we have the CONFIG_KALLSYMS_EXTRA_PASS Kconfig switch, which users can enable or disable while configuring the kernel. This option is then used by 'make' to determine whether an extra kallsyms pass is needed or not. However, this approach is not nice and confusing, and this patch moves CONFIG_KALLSYMS_EXTRA_PASS from Kconfig to Makefile instead. The rationale is below. 1. CONFIG_KALLSYMS_EXTRA_PASS is really about the build time, not run-time. There is no real need for it to be in Kconfig. It is just an additional work-around which should be used only in rare cases, when someone breaks kallsyms, so Kbuild/Makefile is much better place for this option. 2. Grepping CONFIG_KALLSYMS_EXTRA_PASS shows that many defconfigs have it enabled, probably not because they try to work-around a kallsyms bug, but just because the Kconfig help text is confusing and does not really make it clear that this option should not be used unless except when kallsyms is broken. 3. And since many people have CONFIG_KALLSYMS_EXTRA_PASS enabled in their Kconfig, we do might fail to notice kallsyms bugs in time. E.g., many testers use "make allyesconfig" to test builds, which will enable CONFIG_KALLSYMS_EXTRA_PASS and kallsyms breakage will not be noticed. To address that, this patch: 1. Kills CONFIG_KALLSYMS_EXTRA_PASS 2. Changes Makefile so that people can use "make KALLSYMS_EXTRA_PASS=1" to enable the extra pass if needed. Additionally, they may define KALLSYMS_EXTRA_PASS as an environment variable. 3. By default KALLSYMS_EXTRA_PASS is disabled and if kallsyms has issues, "make" should print a warning and suggest using KALLSYMS_EXTRA_PASS Signed-off-by: Artem Bityutskiy <Artem.Bityutskiy@nokia.com> [mmarek: Removed make help text, is not necessary] Signed-off-by: Michal Marek <mmarek@suse.cz>

2011-03-23userns: add a user_namespace as creator/owner of uts_namespaceSerge E. Hallyn1-0/+1
The expected course of development for user namespaces targeted capabilities is laid out at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UserNamespace. Goals: - Make it safe for an unprivileged user to unshare namespaces. They will be privileged with respect to the new namespace, but this should only include resources which the unprivileged user already owns. - Provide separate limits and accounting for userids in different namespaces. Status: Currently (as of 2.6.38) you can clone with the CLONE_NEWUSER flag to get a new user namespace if you have the CAP_SYS_ADMIN, CAP_SETUID, and CAP_SETGID capabilities. What this gets you is a whole new set of userids, meaning that user 500 will have a different 'struct user' in your namespace than in other namespaces. So any accounting information stored in struct user will be unique to your namespace. However, throughout the kernel there are checks which - simply check for a capability. Since root in a child namespace has all capabilities, this means that a child namespace is not constrained. - simply compare uid1 == uid2. Since these are the integer uids, uid 500 in namespace 1 will be said to be equal to uid 500 in namespace 2. As a result, the lxc implementation at lxc.sf.net does not use user namespaces. This is actually helpful because it leaves us free to develop user namespaces in such a way that, for some time, user namespaces may be unuseful. Bugs aside, this patchset is supposed to not at all affect systems which are not actively using user namespaces, and only restrict what tasks in child user namespace can do. They begin to limit privilege to a user namespace, so that root in a container cannot kill or ptrace tasks in the parent user namespace, and can only get world access rights to files. Since all files currently belong to the initila user namespace, that means that child user namespaces can only get world access rights to *all* files. While this temporarily makes user namespaces bad for system containers, it starts to get useful for some sandboxing. I've run the 'runltplite.sh' with and without this patchset and found no difference. This patch: copy_process() handles CLONE_NEWUSER before the rest of the namespaces. So in the case of clone(CLONE_NEWUSER|CLONE_NEWUTS) the new uts namespace will have the new user namespace as its owner. That is what we want, since we want root in that new userns to be able to have privilege over it. Changelog: Feb 15: don't set uts_ns->user_ns if we didn't create a new uts_ns.

2011-03-22calibrate: retry with wider bounds when converge seems to failPhil Carmody1-4/+18
Systems with unmaskable interrupts such as SMIs may massively underestimate loops_per_jiffy, and fail to converge anywhere near the real value. A case seen on x86_64 was an initial estimate of 256<<12, which converged to 511<<12 where the real value should have been over 630<<12. This admitedly requires bypassing the TSC calibration (lpj_fine), and a failure to settle in the direct calibration too, but is physically possible. This failure does not depend on my previous calibration optimisation, but by luck is easy to fix with the optimisation in place with a trivial retry loop. In the context of the optimised converging method, as we can no longer trust the starting estimate, enlarge the search bounds exponentially so that the number of retries is logarithmically bounded.

2011-03-22calibrate: home in on correct lpj value more quicklyPhil Carmody1-23/+34
Binary chop with a jiffy-resync on each step to find an upper bound is slow, so just race in a tight-ish loop to find an underestimate. If done with lots of individual steps, sometimes several hundreds of iterations would be required, which would impose a significant overhead, and make the initial estimate very low. By taking slowly increasing steps there will be less overhead. E.g. an x86_64 2.67GHz could have fitted in 613 individual small delays, but in reality should have been able to fit in a single delay 644 times longer, so underestimated by 31 steps. To reach the equivalent of 644 small delays with the accelerating scheme now requires about 130 iterations, so has <1/4th of the overhead, and can therefore be expected to underestimate by only 7 steps. As now we have a better initial estimate we can binary chop over a smaller range. With the loop overhead in the initial estimate kept low, and the step sizes moderate, we won't have under-estimated by much, so chose as tight a range as we can.

2011-03-22calibrate: extract fall-back calculation into own helperPhil Carmody1-33/+40
The motivation for this patch series is that currently our OMAP calibrates itself using the trial-and-error binary chop fallback that some other architectures no longer need to perform. This is a lengthy process, taking 0.2s in an environment where boot time is of great interest. Patch 2/4 has two optimisations. Firstly, it replaces the initial repeated- doubling to find the relevant power of 2 with a tight loop that just does as much as it can in a jiffy. Secondly, it doesn't binary chop over an entire power of 2 range, it choses a much smaller range based on how much it squeezed in, and failed to squeeze in, during the first stage. Both are significant optimisations, and bring our calibration down from 23 jiffies to 5, and, in the process, often arrive at a more accurate lpj value. The 'bands' and 'sub-logarithmic' growth may look over-engineered, but they only cost a small level of inaccuracy in the initial guess (for all architectures) in order to avoid the very large inaccuracies that appeared during testing (on x86_64 architectures, and presumably others with less metronomic operation). Note that due to the existence of the TSC and other timers, the x86_64 will not typically use this fallback routine, but I wanted to code defensively, able to cope with all kinds of processor behaviours and kernel command line options. Patch 3/4 is an additional trap for the nightmare scenario where the initial estimate is very inaccurate, possibly due to things like SMIs. It simply retries with a larger bound. Stephen said: I tried this patch set out on an MSM7630. : : Before: : : Calibrating delay loop... 681.57 BogoMIPS (lpj=3407872) : : After: : : Calibrating delay loop... 680.75 BogoMIPS (lpj=3403776) : : But the really good news is calibration time dropped from ~247ms to ~56ms. : Sadly we won't be able to benefit from this should my udelay patches make : it into ARM because we would be using calibrate_delay_direct() instead (at : least on machines who choose to). Can we somehow reapply the logic behind : this to calibrate_delay_direct()? That would be even better, but this is : definitely a boot time improvement. : : Or maybe we could just replace calibrate_delay_direct() with this fallback : calculation? If __delay() is a thin wrapper around read_current_timer() : it should work just as well (plus patch 3 makes it handle SMIs). I'll try : that out. This patch: ... so that it can be modified more clinically. This is almost entirely cosmetic. The only change to the operation is that the global variable is only set once after the estimation is completed, rather than taking on all the intermediate values. However, there are no readers of that variable, so this change is unimportant.
