We re-named 'DYNAMIC_PRINTK_DEBUG' to 'DYNAMIC_DEBUG' in 2.6.30.... 'PRINTK_DEBUG' as pointed out never existed. So, it appears to be extraneous, and should be removed. thanks for pointing it out.

2009-04-26dma-debug: remove broken dma memory leak detection for 2.6.30Joerg Roedel1-52/+1
The feature needs some more work because the notfier which is used to check for pending allocations is called before the device drivers ->remove() function. Therefore this feature reports false positives. A real fix for this issue is to introduce a new notifier event which sent _after_ the driver has deinitialized itself. That will done for the next kernel version.

2009-04-24lib: find_last_bit.o needed by a module only, move it from lib to objFred Isaman1-1/+1
Currently, although find_last_bit is EXPORTed, it is statically linked with the kernel and is referenced only under CONFIG_SMP. When CONFIG_SMP is undefined and find_last_bit is referenced only by modules, linking fails with: ERROR: "find_last_bit" [fs/nfs/nfs.ko] undefined!

Always omit frame pointers on s390. They aren't too useful for the kernel since we have already the kernel stack backchain which allows us to walk the kernel stack. So eleminate the extra code for frame pointers. Only allow the extra code for the function tracer since the gcc compile options -pg and -fomit-frame-pointer are incompatible.

notice one system /proc/iomem some entries missed the name for pci_devices it turns that dev->dev.kobj name is changed after device_add. for pci code: via acpi_pci_root_driver.ops.add (aka acpi_pci_root_add) ==> pci_acpi_scan_root is used to scan pci bus/device, and at the same time we read the resource for pci_dev in the pci_read_bases, we have res->name = pci_name(pci_dev); pci_name is calling dev_name. later via acpi_pci_root_driver.ops.start (aka acpi_pci_root_start) ==> pci_bus_add_device to add all pci_dev in kobj tree. pci_bus_add_device will call device_add. actually in device_add /* first, register with generic layer. */ error = kobject_add(&dev->kobj, dev->kobj.parent, "%s", dev_name(dev)); if (error) goto Error; will get one new name for that kobj, old name is freed.

2009-04-16Revert "kobject: don't block for each kobject_uevent".Hugh Dickins1-1/+1
This reverts commit f520360d93cdc37de5d972dac4bf3bdef6a7f6a7. Tetsuo Handa, running a kernel with CONFIG_DEBUG_PAGEALLOC=y and CONFIG_UEVENT_HELPER_PATH=/sbin/hotplug, has been hitting RCU detected CPU stalls: it's been spinning in the loop where do_execve() counts up the args (but why wasn't fixup_exception working? dunno). The recent change, switching kobject_uevent_env() from UMH_WAIT_EXEC to UMH_NO_WAIT, is broken: the exec uses args on the local stack here, and an env which is kfreed as soon as call_usermodehelper() returns. It very much needs to wait for the exec to be done. An alternative would be to keep the UMH_NO_WAIT, and complicate the code to allocate and free these resources correctly? but no, as GregKH pointed out when making the commit, CONFIG_UEVENT_HELPER_PATH="" is a much better optimization - though some distros are still saying /sbin/hotplug in their .config, yet with no such binary in their initrd or their root.

2009-04-12lockdep: warn about lockdep disabling after kernel taintFrederic Weisbecker1-1/+1
Impact: provide useful missing info for developers Kernel taint can occur in several situations such as warnings, load of prorietary or staging modules, bad page, etc... But when such taint happens, a developer might still be working on the kernel, expecting that lockdep is still enabled. But a taint disables lockdep without ever warning about it. Such a kernel behaviour doesn't really help for kernel development. This patch adds this missing warning. Since the taint is done most of the time after the main message that explain the real source issue, it seems safe to warn about it inside add_taint() so that it appears at last, without hurting the main information. v2: Use a generic helper to disable lockdep instead of an open coded xchg().

Fix slab corruption caused by alloc_cpumask_var_node() overwriting the tail end of an off-stack cpumask. The function zeros out cpumask bits beyond the last possible cpu. The starting point for zeroing should be the beginning of the mask offset by a byte count derived from the number of possible cpus. The offset was calculated in bits instead of bytes.

2009-04-02cgroup: CSS ID supportKAMEZAWA Hiroyuki1-0/+46
Patch for Per-CSS(Cgroup Subsys State) ID and private hierarchy code. This patch attaches unique ID to each css and provides following. - css_lookup(subsys, id) returns pointer to struct cgroup_subysys_state of id. - css_get_next(subsys, id, rootid, depth, foundid) returns the next css under "root" by scanning When cgroup_subsys->use_id is set, an id for css is maintained. The cgroup framework only parepares - css_id of root css for subsys - id is automatically attached at creation of css. - id is *not* freed automatically. Because the cgroup framework don't know lifetime of cgroup_subsys_state. free_css_id() function is provided. This must be called by subsys. There are several reasons to develop this. - Saving space .... For example, memcg's swap_cgroup is array of pointers to cgroup. But it is not necessary to be very fast. By replacing pointers(8bytes per ent) to ID (2byes per ent), we can reduce much amount of memory usage. - Scanning without lock. CSS_ID provides "scan id under this ROOT" function. By this, scanning css under root can be written without locks. ex) do { rcu_read_lock(); next = cgroup_get_next(subsys, id, root, &found); /* check sanity of next here */ css_tryget(); rcu_read_unlock(); id = found + 1 } while(...) Characteristics: - Each css has unique ID under subsys. - Lifetime of ID is controlled by subsys. - css ID contains "ID" and "Depth in hierarchy" and stack of hierarchy - Allowed ID is 1-65535, ID 0 is UNUSED ID. Design Choices: - scan-by-ID v.s. scan-by-tree-walk. As /proc's pid scan does, scan-by-ID is robust when scanning is done by following kind of routine. scan -> rest a while(release a lock) -> conitunue from interrupted memcg's hierarchical reclaim does this. - When subsys->use_id is set, # of css in the system is limited to 65535.

2009-03-24Dynamic debug: allow simple quoting of wordsGreg Banks1-20/+33
Allow simple quoting of words in the dynamic debug control language. This allows more natural specification when using the control language to match against printk formats, e.g #echo -n 'format "Setting node for non-present cpu" +p' > /mnt/debugfs/dynamic_debug/control instead of #echo -n 'format Setting\040node\040for\040non-present\040cpu +p' > /mnt/debugfs/dynamic_debug/control Adjust the dynamic debug documention to describe that and provide a new example. Adjust the existing examples in the documentation to reflect the current whitespace escaping behaviour when reading the control file. Fix some minor documentation trailing whitespace.

2009-03-24dynamic debug: combine dprintk and dynamic printkJason Baron4-416/+758
This patch combines Greg Bank's dprintk() work with the existing dynamic printk patchset, we are now calling it 'dynamic debug'. The new feature of this patchset is a richer /debugfs control file interface, (an example output from my system is at the bottom), which allows fined grained control over the the debug output. The output can be controlled by function, file, module, format string, and line number. for example, enabled all debug messages in module 'nf_conntrack': echo -n 'module nf_conntrack +p' > /mnt/debugfs/dynamic_debug/control to disable them: echo -n 'module nf_conntrack -p' > /mnt/debugfs/dynamic_debug/control A further explanation can be found in the documentation patch.

2009-03-24kobject: don't block for each kobject_ueventArjan van de Ven1-1/+1
Right now, the kobject_uevent code blocks for each uevent that's being generated, due to using (for hystoric reasons) UHM_WAIT_EXEC as flag to call_usermode_helper(). Specifically, the effect is that each uevent that is being sent causes the code to wake up keventd, then block until keventd has processed the work. Needless to say, this happens many times during the system boot. This patches changes that to UHN_NO_WAIT (brilliant name for a constant btw) so that we only schedule the work to fire the uevent message, but do not wait for keventd to process the work. This removes one of the bottlenecks during boot; each one of them is only a small effect, but the sum of them does add up. [Note, distros that need this are broken, they should be setting CONFIG_UEVENT_HELPER_PATH to "", that way this code path will never be excuted at all -- gregkh] Signed-off-by: Arjan van de Ven <arjan@linux.intel.com> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@suse.de>
2009-03-24Driver core: implement uevent suppress in kobjectMing Lei1-0/+7
This patch implements uevent suppress in kobject and removes it from struct device, based on the following ideas: 1,Uevent sending should be one attribute of kobject, so suppressing it in kobject layer is more natural than in device layer. By this way, we can do it for other objects embedded with kobject. 2,It may save several bytes for each instance of struct device.(On my omap3(32bit ARM) based box, can save 8bytes per device object) This patch also introduces dev_set|get_uevent_suppress() helpers to set and query uevent_suppress attribute in case to help kobject as private part of struct device in future.
