This can be broken down into these major areas: - Documentation updates (language translations and fixes, as well as kobject and kset documenatation updates.) - major kset/kobject/ktype rework and fixes. This cleans up the kset and kobject and ktype relationship and architecture, making sense of things now, and good documenation and samples are provided for others to use. Also the attributes for kobjects are much easier to handle now. This cleaned up a LOT of code all through the kernel, making kobjects easier to use if you want to. - struct bus_type has been reworked to now handle the lifetime rules properly, as the kobject is properly dynamic. - struct driver has also been reworked, and now the lifetime issues are resolved. - the block subsystem has been converted to use struct device now, and not "raw" kobjects. This patch has been in the -mm tree for over a year now, and finally all the issues are worked out with it. Older distros now properly work with new kernels, and no userspace updates are needed at all. - nozomi driver is added. This has also been in -mm for a long time, and many people have asked for it to go in. It is now in good enough shape to do so. - lots of class_device conversions to use struct device instead.

2008-01-25slab: fix bootstrap on memoryless nodePekka Enberg1-23/+23
If the node we're booting on doesn't have memory, bootstrapping kmalloc() caches resorts to fallback_alloc() which requires ->nodelists set for all nodes. Fix that by calling set_up_list3s() for CACHE_CACHE in kmem_cache_init(). As kmem_getpages() is called with GFP_THISNODE set, this used to work before because of breakage in 2.6.22 and before with GFP_THISNODE returning pages from the wrong node if a node had no memory. So it may have worked accidentally and in an unsafe manner because the pages would have been associated with the wrong node which could trigger bug ons and locking troubles.

2008-01-24fix hugepages leak due to pagetable page sharingLarry Woodman1-0/+5
The shared page table code for hugetlb memory on x86 and x86_64 is causing a leak. When a user of hugepages exits using this code the system leaks some of the hugepages. ------------------------------------------------------- Part of /proc/meminfo just before database startup: HugePages_Total: 5500 HugePages_Free: 5500 HugePages_Rsvd: 0 Hugepagesize: 2048 kB Just before shutdown: HugePages_Total: 5500 HugePages_Free: 4475 HugePages_Rsvd: 0 Hugepagesize: 2048 kB After shutdown: HugePages_Total: 5500 HugePages_Free: 4988 HugePages_Rsvd: 0 Hugepagesize: 2048 kB ---------------------------------------------------------- The problem occurs durring a fork, in copy_hugetlb_page_range(). It locates the dst_pte using huge_pte_alloc(). Since huge_pte_alloc() calls huge_pmd_share() it will share the pmd page if can, yet the main loop in copy_hugetlb_page_range() does a get_page() on every hugepage. This is a violation of the shared hugepmd pagetable protocol and creates additional referenced to the hugepages causing a leak when the unmap of the VMA occurs. We can skip the entire replication of the ptes when the hugepage pagetables are shared. The attached patch skips copying the ptes and the get_page() calls if the hugetlbpage pagetable is shared.

2008-01-17#ifdef very expensive debug check in page fault pathCarsten Otte1-0/+2
This patch puts #ifdef CONFIG_DEBUG_VM around a check in vm_normal_page that verifies that a pfn is valid. This patch increases performance of the page fault microbenchmark in lmbench by 13% and overall dbench performance by 7% on s390x. pfn_valid() is an expensive operation on s390 that needs a high double digit amount of CPU cycles. Nick Piggin suggested that pfn_valid() involves an array lookup on systems with sparsemem, and therefore is an expensive operation there too. The check looks like a clear debug thing to me, it should never trigger on regular kernels. And if a pte is created for an invalid pfn, we'll find out once the memory gets accessed later on anyway.

Krzysztof Oledzki noticed a dirty page accounting leak on some of his machines, causing the machine to eventually lock up when the kernel decided that there was too much dirty data, but nobody could actually write anything out to fix it. The culprit turns out to be filesystems (cough ext3 with data=journal cough) that re-dirty the page when the "->invalidatepage()" callback is called.

2007-12-17hugetlb: introduce nr_overcommit_hugepages sysctlNishanth Aravamudan1-6/+61
hugetlb: introduce nr_overcommit_hugepages sysctl While examining the code to support /proc/sys/vm/hugetlb_dynamic_pool, I became convinced that having a boolean sysctl was insufficient: 1) To support per-node control of hugepages, I have previously submitted patches to add a sysfs attribute related to nr_hugepages. However, with a boolean global value and per-mount quota enforcement constraining the dynamic pool, adding corresponding control of the dynamic pool on a per-node basis seems inconsistent to me. 2) Administration of the hugetlb dynamic pool with multiple hugetlbfs mount points is, arguably, more arduous than it needs to be. Each quota would need to be set separately, and the sum would need to be monitored. To ease the administration, and to help make the way for per-node control of the static & dynamic hugepage pool, I added a separate sysctl, nr_overcommit_hugepages. This value serves as a high watermark for the overall hugepage pool, while nr_hugepages serves as a low watermark. The boolean sysctl can then be removed, as the condition nr_overcommit_hugepages > 0 indicates the same administrative setting as hugetlb_dynamic_pool == 1 Quotas still serve as local enforcement of the size of the pool on a per-mount basis. A few caveats: 1) There is a race whereby the global surplus huge page counter is incremented before a hugepage has allocated. Another process could then try grow the pool, and fail to convert a surplus huge page to a normal huge page and instead allocate a fresh huge page. I believe this is benign, as no memory is leaked (the actual pages are still tracked correctly) and the counters won't go out of sync. 2) Shrinking the static pool while a surplus is in effect will allow the number of surplus huge pages to exceed the overcommit value. As long as this condition holds, however, no more surplus huge pages will be allowed on the system until one of the two sysctls are increased sufficiently, or the surplus huge pages go out of use and are freed. Successfully tested on x86_64 with the current libhugetlbfs snapshot, modified to use the new sysctl.

2007-12-17mm: fix page allocation for larger I/O segmentsMel Gorman1-0/+11
In some cases the IO subsystem is able to merge requests if the pages are adjacent in physical memory. This was achieved in the allocator by having expand() return pages in physically contiguous order in situations were a large buddy was split. However, list-based anti-fragmentation changed the order pages were returned in to avoid searching in buffered_rmqueue() for a page of the appropriate migrate type. This patch restores behaviour of rmqueue_bulk() preserving the physical order of pages returned by the allocator without incurring increased search costs for anti-fragmentation.

Both slob and slub react to __GFP_ZERO by clearing the allocation, which means that passing the GFP_ZERO bit down to the page allocator is just wasteful and pointless.

2007-12-05SLUB's ksize() fails for size > 2048Vegard Nossum1-1/+5
I can't pass memory allocated by kmalloc() to ksize() if it is allocated by SLUB allocator and size is larger than (I guess) PAGE_SIZE / 2. The error of ksize() seems to be that it does not check if the allocation was made by SLUB or the page allocator.

2007-12-06Security: round mmap hint address above mmap_min_addrEric Paris2-0/+6
If mmap_min_addr is set and a process attempts to mmap (not fixed) with a non-null hint address less than mmap_min_addr the mapping will fail the security checks. Since this is just a hint address this patch will round such a hint address above mmap_min_addr. gcj was found to try to be very frugal with vm usage and give hint addresses in the 8k-32k range. Without this patch all such programs failed and with the patch they happily get a higher address. This patch is wrappad in CONFIG_SECURITY since mmap_min_addr doesn't exist without it and there would be no security check possible no matter what. So we should not bother compiling in this rounding if it is just a waste of time. Signed-off-by: Eric Paris <eparis@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: James Morris <jmorris@namei.org>

2007-11-30Fix kmem_cache_free performance regression in slabMatthew Wilcox1-2/+2
The database performance group have found that half the cycles spent in kmem_cache_free are spent in this one call to BUG_ON. Moving it into the CONFIG_SLAB_DEBUG-only function cache_free_debugcheck() is a performance win of almost 0.5% on their particular benchmark. The call was added as part of commit ddc2e812d592457747c4367fb73edcaa8e1e49ff with the comment that "overhead should be minimal". It may have been minimal at the time, but it isn't now.

2007-11-29Fix boot problem with iSeries lacking hugepage supportMel Gorman1-2/+21
Ordinarily the size of a pageblock is determined at compile-time based on the hugepage size. On PPC64, the hugepage size is determined at runtime based on what is supported by the machine. With legacy machines such as iSeries that do not support hugepages, HPAGE_SHIFT is 0. This results in pageblock_order being set to -PAGE_SHIFT and a crash results shortly afterwards. This patch adds a function to select a sensible value for pageblock order by default when HUGETLB_PAGE_SIZE_VARIABLE is set. It checks that HPAGE_SHIFT is a sensible value before using the hugepage size; if it is not MAX_ORDER-1 is used. This is a fix for 2.6.24. Credit goes to Stephen Rothwell for identifying the bug and testing candidate patches. Additional credit goes to Andy Whitcroft for spotting a problem with respects to IA-64 before releasing. Additional credit to David Gibson for testing with the libhugetlbfs test suite.

2007-11-20[S390] Optimize storage key handling for anonymous pagesChristian Borntraeger1-4/+5
page_mkclean used to call page_clear_dirty for every given page. This is different to all other architectures, where the dirty bit in the PTEs is only resetted, if page_mapping() returns a non-NULL pointer. We can move the page_test_dirty/page_clear_dirty sequence into the 2nd if to avoid unnecessary iske/sske sequences, which are expensive. This change also helps kvm for s390 as the host must transfer the dirty bit into the guest status bits. By moving the page_clear_dirty operation into the 2nd if, the vm will only call page_clear_dirty for pages where it walks the mapping anyway. There it calls ptep_clear_flush for writable ptes, so we can transfer the dirty bit to the guest.
