2006-09-26[PATCH] Allow early_param and identical __setup to existRusty Russell1-4/+8
We currently assume that boot parameters which are handled by early_param() will not overlap boot parameters handled by __setup: if they do, behaviour is dependent on link order, usually meaning __setup will not get called. ACPI wants to use early_param("pci"), and pci uses __setup("pci="), so we modify the core to let them coexist: "pci=noacpi" will now get passed to both.

2006-09-25Driver Core: add ability for drivers to do a threaded probeGreg Kroah-Hartman1-0/+5
This adds the infrastructure for drivers to do a threaded probe, and waits at init time for all currently outstanding probes to complete. A new kernel thread will be created when the probe() function for the driver is called, if the multithread_probe bit is set in the driver saying it can support this kind of operation. I have tested this with USB and PCI, and it works, and shaves off a lot of time in the boot process, but there are issues with finding root boot disks, and some USB drivers assume that this can never happen, so it is currently not enabled for any bus type. Individual drivers can enable this right now if they wish, and bus authors can selectivly turn it on as well, once they determine that their subsystem will work properly with it.

2006-07-14[PATCH] per-task-delay-accounting: taskstats interfaceShailabh Nagar2-0/+15
Create a "taskstats" interface based on generic netlink (NETLINK_GENERIC family), for getting statistics of tasks and thread groups during their lifetime and when they exit. The interface is intended for use by multiple accounting packages though it is being created in the context of delay accounting. This patch creates the interface without populating the fields of the data that is sent to the user in response to a command or upon the exit of a task. Each accounting package interested in using taskstats has to provide an additional patch to add its stats to the common structure.

2006-07-03[PATCH] lockdep: coreIngo Molnar1-0/+14
Do 'make oldconfig' and accept all the defaults for new config options - reboot into the kernel and if everything goes well it should boot up fine and you should have /proc/lockdep and /proc/lockdep_stats files. Typically if the lock validator finds some problem it will print out voluminous debug output that begins with "BUG: ..." and which syslog output can be used by kernel developers to figure out the precise locking scenario. What does the lock validator do? It "observes" and maps all locking rules as they occur dynamically (as triggered by the kernel's natural use of spinlocks, rwlocks, mutexes and rwsems). Whenever the lock validator subsystem detects a new locking scenario, it validates this new rule against the existing set of rules. If this new rule is consistent with the existing set of rules then the new rule is added transparently and the kernel continues as normal. If the new rule could create a deadlock scenario then this condition is printed out. When determining validity of locking, all possible "deadlock scenarios" are considered: assuming arbitrary number of CPUs, arbitrary irq context and task context constellations, running arbitrary combinations of all the existing locking scenarios. In a typical system this means millions of separate scenarios. This is why we call it a "locking correctness" validator - for all rules that are observed the lock validator proves it with mathematical certainty that a deadlock could not occur (assuming that the lock validator implementation itself is correct and its internal data structures are not corrupted by some other kernel subsystem). [see more details and conditionals of this statement in include/linux/lockdep.h and Documentation/lockdep-design.txt] Furthermore, this "all possible scenarios" property of the validator also enables the finding of complex, highly unlikely multi-CPU multi-context races via single single-context rules, increasing the likelyhood of finding bugs drastically. In practical terms: the lock validator already found a bug in the upstream kernel that could only occur on systems with 3 or more CPUs, and which needed 3 very unlikely code sequences to occur at once on the 3 CPUs. That bug was found and reported on a single-CPU system (!). So in essence a race will be found "piecemail-wise", triggering all the necessary components for the race, without having to reproduce the race scenario itself! In its short existence the lock validator found and reported many bugs before they actually caused a real deadlock. To further increase the efficiency of the validator, the mapping is not per "lock instance", but per "lock-class". For example, all struct inode objects in the kernel have inode->inotify_mutex. If there are 10,000 inodes cached, then there are 10,000 lock objects. But ->inotify_mutex is a single "lock type", and all locking activities that occur against ->inotify_mutex are "unified" into this single lock-class. The advantage of the lock-class approach is that all historical ->inotify_mutex uses are mapped into a single (and as narrow as possible) set of locking rules - regardless of how many different tasks or inode structures it took to build this set of rules. The set of rules persist during the lifetime of the kernel. To see the rough magnitude of checking that the lock validator does, here's a portion of /proc/lockdep_stats, fresh after bootup: lock-classes: 694 [max: 2048] direct dependencies: 1598 [max: 8192] indirect dependencies: 17896 all direct dependencies: 16206 dependency chains: 1910 [max: 8192] in-hardirq chains: 17 in-softirq chains: 105 in-process chains: 1065 stack-trace entries: 38761 [max: 131072] combined max dependencies: 2033928 hardirq-safe locks: 24 hardirq-unsafe locks: 176 softirq-safe locks: 53 softirq-unsafe locks: 137 irq-safe locks: 59 irq-unsafe locks: 176 The lock validator has observed 1598 actual single-thread locking patterns, and has validated all possible 2033928 distinct locking scenarios.

2006-07-03[PATCH] lockdep: better lock debuggingIngo Molnar1-0/+8
Generic lock debugging: - generalized lock debugging framework. For example, a bug in one lock subsystem turns off debugging in all lock subsystems. - got rid of the caller address passing (__IP__/__IP_DECL__/etc.) from the mutex/rtmutex debugging code: it caused way too much prototype hackery, and lockdep will give the same information anyway. - ability to do silent tests - check lock freeing in vfree too. - more finegrained debugging options, to allow distributions to turn off more expensive debugging features. There's no separate 'held mutexes' list anymore - but there's a 'held locks' stack within lockdep, which unifies deadlock detection across all lock classes. (this is independent of the lockdep validation stuff - lockdep first checks whether we are holding a lock already) Here are the current debugging options: CONFIG_DEBUG_MUTEXES=y CONFIG_DEBUG_LOCK_ALLOC=y which do: config DEBUG_MUTEXES bool "Mutex debugging, basic checks" config DEBUG_LOCK_ALLOC bool "Detect incorrect freeing of live mutexes" Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Signed-off-by: Arjan van de Ven <arjan@linux.intel.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>

2006-07-03[PATCH] time initialisation fixjohn stultz1-1/+3
We're not reay to take a timer interrupt until timekeeping_init() has run. But time_init() will start the time interrupt and if it is called with local interrupts enabled we'll immediately take an interrupt and die. Fix that by running timekeeping_init() prior to time_init(). We don't know _why_ local interrupts got enabled on Jesse Brandeburg's machine. That's a separate as-yet-unsolved problem. THe patch adds a little bit of debugging to detect that. This whole requirement that local interrupts be held off during early boot keeps on biting us.

2006-06-30[PATCH] Light weight event countersChristoph Lameter1-0/+9
The remaining counters in page_state after the zoned VM counter patches have been applied are all just for show in /proc/vmstat. They have no essential function for the VM. We use a simple increment of per cpu variables. In order to avoid the most severe races we disable preempt. Preempt does not prevent the race between an increment and an interrupt handler incrementing the same statistics counter. However, that race is exceedingly rare, we may only loose one increment or so and there is no requirement (at least not in kernel) that the vm event counters have to be accurate. In the non preempt case this results in a simple increment for each counter. For many architectures this will be reduced by the compiler to a single instruction. This single instruction is atomic for i386 and x86_64. And therefore even the rare race condition in an interrupt is avoided for both architectures in most cases. The patchset also adds an off switch for embedded systems that allows a building of linux kernels without these counters. The implementation of these counters is through inline code that hopefully results in only a single instruction increment instruction being emitted (i386, x86_64) or in the increment being hidden though instruction concurrency (EPIC architectures such as ia64 can get that done). Benefits: - VM event counter operations usually reduce to a single inline instruction on i386 and x86_64. - No interrupt disable, only preempt disable for the preempt case. Preempt disable can also be avoided by moving the counter into a spinlock. - Handling is similar to zoned VM counters. - Simple and easily extendable. - Can be omitted to reduce memory use for embedded use.

2006-06-20[PATCH] audit: path-based rulesAmy Griffis1-1/+2
In this implementation, audit registers inotify watches on the parent directories of paths specified in audit rules. When audit's inotify event handler is called, it updates any affected rules based on the filesystem event. If the parent directory is renamed, removed, or its filesystem is unmounted, audit removes all rules referencing that inotify watch. To keep things simple, this implementation limits location-based auditing to the directory entries in an existing directory. Given a path-based rule for /foo/bar/passwd, the following table applies: passwd modified -- audit event logged passwd replaced -- audit event logged, rules list updated bar renamed -- rule removed foo renamed -- untracked, meaning that the rule now applies to the new location Audit users typically want to have many rules referencing filesystem objects, which can significantly impact filtering performance. This patch also adds an inode-number-based rule hash to mitigate this situation. The patch is relative to the audit git tree: http://kernel.org/git/?p=linux/kernel/git/viro/audit-current.git;a=summary and uses the inotify kernel API: http://lkml.org/lkml/2006/6/1/145 Signed-off-by: Amy Griffis <amy.griffis@hp.com> Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>
2006-06-09kconfig: add defconfig_list/module optionRoman Zippel1-0/+8
This makes it possible to change two options which were hardcoded sofar. 1. Any symbol can now take the role of CONFIG_MODULES 2. The more useful option is to change the list of default file names, which kconfig uses to load the base configuration if .config isn't available.

2006-05-15[PATCH] root mount failure: emit filesystems attemptedAndy Whitcroft1-0/+5
When we fail to mount from a valid root device list out the filesystems we have tried to mount it with. This gives the user vital diagnostics as to what is missing from their kernel. For example in the fragment below the kernel does not have CRAMFS compiled into the kernel and yet appears to recognise it at the RAMDISK detect stage. Later the mount fails as we don't have the filesystem. RAMDISK: cramfs filesystem found at block 0 RAMDISK: Loading 1604KiB [1 disk] into ram disk... done. XFS: bad magic number XFS: SB validate failed No filesystem could mount root, tried: reiserfs ext3 ext2 msdos vfat iso9660 jfs xfs Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(8,1) Signed-off-by: Andy Whitcroft <apw@shadowen.org> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2006-05-15[PATCH] initramfs: fix CPIO hardlink checkMark Huang1-4/+4
Copy the filenames of hardlinks when inserting them into the hash, since the "name" pointer may point to scratch space (name_buf). Not doing so results in corruption if the scratch space is later overwritten: the wrong file may be hardlinked, or, if the scratch space contains garbage, the link will fail and a 0-byte file will be created instead.

2006-03-26[PATCH] remove fixup_cpu_present_map()Andrew Morton1-19/+0
Since the addition of boot_cpu_init(), fixup_cpu_present_map() has been a no-op. That's because fixup_cpu_present_map() won't touch cpu_present_map if it has any bits set, and boot_cpu_init() sets a bit. So remove fixup_cpu_present_map(). A consequence of this (actually of the boot_cpu_init() change) is that the architecture _must_ populate cpu_present_map itself (probably in smp_prepare_cpus()). fixup_cpu_present_map() won't do it any more. If the architecture doesn't do this, it'll only bring up a single CPU. The other side effect (though less serious) is that smp_prepare_boot_cpu() no longer needs to mark the boot cpu in the online and present maps - boot_cpu_init() does that for everyone (to make early printks work).

2006-03-25[PATCH] BLK_DEV_INITRD: do not require BLK_DEV_RAM=yZdenek Pavlas1-0/+10
Initramfs initrd images do not need a ramdisk device, so remove this restriction in Kconfig. BLK_DEV_RAM=n saves about 13k on i386. Also without ramdisk device there's no need for "dry run", so initramfs unpacks much faster. People using cramfs, squashfs, or gzipped ext2/minix initrd images are probably smart enough not to turn off ramdisk support by accident.
