Some of the per-cpu counters and thus their locks are accessed from IRQ contexts. This can cause a deadlock if it interrupts a cpu-offline thread which is transferring a dead-cpu's counts to the global counter. Add appropriate IRQ protection in the cpu-hotplug callback path.

2007-10-19Use helpers to obtain task pid in printksPavel Emelyanov1-4/+4
The task_struct->pid member is going to be deprecated, so start using the helpers (task_pid_nr/task_pid_vnr/task_pid_nr_ns) in the kernel. The first thing to start with is the pid, printed to dmesg - in this case we may safely use task_pid_nr(). Besides, printks produce more (much more) than a half of all the explicit pid usage.

Cause writes to cpuset "cpus" file to update cpus_allowed for member tasks: - collect batches of tasks under tasklist_lock and then call set_cpus_allowed() on them outside the lock (since this can sleep). - add a simple generic priority heap type to allow efficient collection of batches of tasks to be processed without duplicating or missing any tasks in subsequent batches. - make "cpus" file update a no-op if the mask hasn't changed - fix race between update_cpumask() and sched_setaffinity() by making sched_setaffinity() post-check that it's not running on any cpus outside cpuset_cpus_allowed().

2007-10-17avoid negative (and full-width) shifts in radix-tree.cPeter Lund1-6/+8
Negative shifts are not allowed in C (the result is undefined). Same thing with full-width shifts. It works on most platforms but not on the VAX with gcc 4.0.1 (it results in an "operand reserved" fault). Shifting by more than the width of the value on the left is also not allowed. I think the extra '>> 1' tacked on at the end in the original code was an attempt to work around that. Getting rid of that is an extra feature of this patch. Here's the chapter and verse, taken from the final draft of the C99 standard ("6.5.7 Bitwise shift operators", paragraph 3): "The integer promotions are performed on each of the operands. The type of the result is that of the promoted left operand. If the value of the right operand is negative or is greater than or equal to the width of the promoted left operand, the behavior is undefined." Thank you to Jan-Benedict Glaw, Christoph Hellwig, Maciej Rozycki, Pekka Enberg, Andreas Schwab, and Christoph Lameter for review.

2007-10-17handle recursive calls to bust_spinlocks()Jan Beulich1-3/+3
Various architectures may call bust_spinlocks() recursively; the function itself, however, doesn't appear to be meant to be called in this manner. Nevertheless, this doesn't appear to be a problem as long as bust_spinlocks(0) doesn't get called twice in a row (otherwise, unblank_screen() may enter the scheduler). However, at least on i386 die() has been capable of returning (and on other architectures this should really be that way, too) when notify_die() returns NOTIFY_STOP. Short of getting a reply to a respective query, this patch makes bust_spinlocks() increment/decrement oops_in_progress, and wake klogd only when the count drops back to zero.

2007-10-17lib: floating proportionsPeter Zijlstra2-1/+386
Given a set of objects, floating proportions aims to efficiently give the proportional 'activity' of a single item as compared to the whole set. Where 'activity' is a measure of a temporal property of the items. It is efficient in that it need not inspect any other items of the set in order to provide the answer. It is not even needed to know how many other items there are. It has one parameter, and that is the period of 'time' over which the 'activity' is measured.

2007-10-16Group short-lived and reclaimable kernel allocationsMel Gorman1-2/+4
This patch marks a number of allocations that are either short-lived such as network buffers or are reclaimable such as inode allocations. When something like updatedb is called, long-lived and unmovable kernel allocations tend to be spread throughout the address space which increases fragmentation. This patch groups these allocations together as much as possible by adding a new MIGRATE_TYPE. The MIGRATE_RECLAIMABLE type is for allocations that can be reclaimed on demand, but not moved. i.e. they can be migrated by deleting them and re-reading the information from elsewhere.

2007-10-16fix the max path calculation in radix-tree.cJeff Moyer1-4/+17
A while back, Nick Piggin introduced a patch to reduce the node memory usage for small files (commit cfd9b7df4abd3257c9e381b0e445817b26a51c0c): -#define RADIX_TREE_MAP_SHIFT 6 +#define RADIX_TREE_MAP_SHIFT (CONFIG_BASE_SMALL ? 4 : 6) Unfortunately, he didn't take into account the fact that the calculation of the maximum path was based on an assumption of having to round up: #define RADIX_TREE_MAX_PATH (RADIX_TREE_INDEX_BITS/RADIX_TREE_MAP_SHIFT + 2) So, if CONFIG_BASE_SMALL is set, you will end up with a RADIX_TREE_MAX_PATH that is one greater than necessary. The practical upshot of this is just a bit of wasted memory (one long in the height_to_maxindex array, an extra pre-allocated radix tree node per cpu, and extra stack usage in a couple of functions), but it seems worth getting right. It's also worth noting that I never build with CONFIG_BASE_SMALL. What I did to test this was duplicate the code in a small user-space program and check the results of the calculations for max path and the contents of the height_to_maxindex array.

2007-10-16radix-tree: use indirect bitNick Piggin1-26/+43
Rather than sign direct radix-tree pointers with a special bit, sign the indirect one that hangs off the root. This means that, given a lookup_slot operation, the invalid result will be differentiated from the valid (previously, valid results could have the bit either set or clear). This does not affect slot lookups which occur under lock -- they can never return an invalid result. Is needed in future for lockless pagecache.

2007-10-16slow down printk during bootRandy Dunlap1-0/+18
Optionally add a boot delay after each kernel printk() call, crudely measured in milliseconds, with a maximum delay of 10 seconds per printk. Enable CONFIG_BOOT_PRINTK_DELAY=y and then add (e.g.): "lpj=loops_per_jiffy boot_delay=100" to the kernel command line. It has been useful in cases like "during boot, my machine just reboots or the screen goes black" by slowing down printk, (and adding initcall_debug), we can usually see the last thing that happened before the lights went out which is usually a valuable clue.

2007-10-12dma_free_coherent() needs irqs enabled (sigh)David Brownell1-0/+1
On at least ARM (and I'm told MIPS too) dma_free_coherent() has a newish call context requirement: unlike its dma_alloc_coherent() sibling, it may not be called with IRQs disabled. (This was new behavior on ARM as of late 2005, caused by ARM SMP updates.) This little surprise can be annoyingly driver-visible. Since it looks like that restriction won't be removed, this patch changes the definition of the API to include that requirement. Also, to help catch nonportable drivers, it updates the x86 and swiotlb versions to include the relevant warnings. (I already observed that it trips on the bus_reset_tasklet of the new firewire_ohci driver.)

2007-10-12sysfs: move sysfs file poll implementation to sysfs_open_direntTejun Heo1-1/+0
Sysfs file poll implementation is scattered over sysfs and kobject. Event numbering is done in sysfs_dirent but wait itself is done on kobject. This not only unecessarily bloats both kobject and sysfs_dirent but is also buggy - if a sysfs_dirent is removed while there still are pollers, the associaton betwen the kobject and sysfs_dirent breaks and kobject may be freed with the pollers still sleeping on it. This patch moves whole poll implementation into sysfs_open_dirent. Each time a sysfs_open_dirent is created, event number restarts from 1 and pollers sleep on sysfs_open_dirent. As event sequence number is meaningless without any open file and pollers should have open file and thus sysfs_open_dirent, this ephemeral event counting works and is a saner implementation. This patch fixes the dnagling sleepers bug and reduces the sizes of kobject and sysfs_dirent by one pointer.

Each netlink socket will live in exactly one network namespace, this includes the controlling kernel sockets. This patch updates all of the existing netlink protocols to only support the initial network namespace. Request by clients in other namespaces will get -ECONREFUSED. As they would if the kernel did not have the support for that netlink protocol compiled in. As each netlink protocol is updated to be multiple network namespace safe it can register multiple kernel sockets to acquire a presence in the rest of the network namespaces. The implementation in af_netlink is a simple filter implementation at hash table insertion and hash table look up time. Signed-off-by: Eric W.

2007-10-03[POWERPC] ppc64: support CONFIG_DEBUG_PREEMPTHugh Dickins1-1/+1
Add CONFIG_DEBUG_PREEMPT support to ppc64: it was useful for testing get_paca() preemption. Cheat a little, just use debug_smp_processor_id() in the debug version of get_paca(): it contains all the right checks and reporting, though get_paca() doesn't really use smp_processor_id(). Use local_paca for what might have been called __raw_get_paca(). Silence harmless warnings from io.h and lparcfg.c with local_paca - it is okay for iseries_lparcfg_data to be referencing shared_proc with preemption enabled: all cpus should show the same value for shared_proc. Why do other architectures need TRACE_IRQFLAGS_SUPPORT for DEBUG_PREEMPT? I don't know, ppc64 appears to get along fine without it.
