2010-05-27fs: introduce new truncate sequencenpiggin@suse.de1-1/+6
Introduce a new truncate calling sequence into fs/mm subsystems. Rather than setattr > vmtruncate > truncate, have filesystems call their truncate sequence from ->setattr if filesystem specific operations are required. vmtruncate is deprecated, and truncate_pagecache and inode_newsize_ok helpers introduced previously should be used. simple_setattr is introduced for simple in-ram filesystems to implement the new truncate sequence. Eventually all filesystems should be converted to implement a setattr, and the default code in notify_change should go away. simple_setsize is also introduced to perform just the ATTR_SIZE portion of simple_setattr (ie. changing i_size and trimming pagecache). To implement the new truncate sequence: - filesystem specific manipulations (eg freeing blocks) must be done in the setattr method rather than ->truncate. - vmtruncate can not be used by core code to trim blocks past i_size in the event of write failure after allocation, so this must be performed in the fs code. - convert usage of helpers block_write_begin, nobh_write_begin, cont_write_begin, and *blockdev_direct_IO* to use _newtrunc postfixed variants. These avoid calling vmtruncate to trim blocks (see previous). - inode_setattr should not be used. generic_setattr is a new function to be used to copy simple attributes into the generic inode. - make use of the better opportunity to handle errors with the new sequence. Big problem with the previous calling sequence: the filesystem is not called until i_size has already changed. This means it is not allowed to fail the call, and also it does not know what the previous i_size was. Also, generic code calling vmtruncate to truncate allocated blocks in case of error had no good way to return a meaningful error (or, for example, atomically handle block deallocation).

Driver for the TI TMP102. The TI TMP102 is similar to the LM75. It differs from the LM75 by having a 16-bit conf register and the temp registers have a minimum resolution of 12 bits; the extended conf register can select 13-bit resolution (which this driver does) and also change the update rate (which this driver currently doesn't use).

2010-05-27memcg: move charge of file pagesDaisuke Nishimura1-6/+12
This patch adds support for moving charge of file pages, which include normal file, tmpfs file and swaps of tmpfs file. It's enabled by setting bit 1 of <target cgroup>/memory.move_charge_at_immigrate. Unlike the case of anonymous pages, file pages(and swaps) in the range mmapped by the task will be moved even if the task hasn't done page fault, i.e. they might not be the task's "RSS", but other task's "RSS" that maps the same file. And mapcount of the page is ignored(the page can be moved even if page_mapcount(page) > 1). So, conditions that the page/swap should be met to be moved is that it must be in the range mmapped by the target task and it must be charged to the old cgroup.

This adds a feature to disable oom-killer for memcg, if disabled, of course, tasks under memcg will stop. But now, we have oom-notifier for memcg. And the world around memcg is not under out-of-memory. memcg's out-of-memory just shows memcg hits limit. Then, administrator or management daemon can recover the situation by - kill some process - enlarge limit, add more swap. - migrate some tasks - remove file cache on tmps (difficult ?)

2010-05-25driver core: add devname module aliases to allow module on-demand auto-loadingKay Sievers1-0/+2
This adds: alias: devname:<name> to some common kernel modules, which will allow the on-demand loading of the kernel module when the device node is accessed. Ideally all these modules would be compiled-in, but distros seems too much in love with their modularization that we need to cover the common cases with this new facility. It will allow us to remove a bunch of pretty useless init scripts and modprobes from init scripts. The static device node aliases will be carried in the module itself. The program depmod will extract this information to a file in the module directory: $ cat /lib/modules/2.6.34-00650-g537b60d-dirty/modules.devname # Device nodes to trigger on-demand module loading. microcode cpu/microcode c10:184 fuse fuse c10:229 ppp_generic ppp c108:0 tun net/tun c10:200 dm_mod mapper/control c10:235 Udev will pick up the depmod created file on startup and create all the static device nodes which the kernel modules specify, so that these modules get automatically loaded when the device node is accessed: $ /sbin/udevd --debug ... static_dev_create_from_modules: mknod '/dev/cpu/microcode' c10:184 static_dev_create_from_modules: mknod '/dev/fuse' c10:229 static_dev_create_from_modules: mknod '/dev/ppp' c108:0 static_dev_create_from_modules: mknod '/dev/net/tun' c10:200 static_dev_create_from_modules: mknod '/dev/mapper/control' c10:235 udev_rules_apply_static_dev_perms: chmod '/dev/net/tun' 0666 udev_rules_apply_static_dev_perms: chmod '/dev/fuse' 0666 A few device nodes are switched to statically allocated numbers, to allow the static nodes to work. This might also useful for systems which still run a plain static /dev, which is completely unsafe to use with any dynamic minor numbers. Note: The devname aliases must be limited to the *common* and *single*instance* device nodes, like the misc devices, and never be used for conceptually limited systems like the loop devices, which should rather get fixed properly and get a control node for losetup to talk to, instead of creating a random number of device nodes in advance, regardless if they are ever used. This facility is to hide the mess distros are creating with too modualized kernels, and just to hide that these modules are not compiled-in, and not to paper-over broken concepts.

2010-05-25ieee1394: schedule for removalStefan Richter1-0/+10
All application domains that are supported by the old ieee1394 driver stack are supported by the newer firewire driver stack too. There is now good and extensive experience with the newer stack from deployment in Fedora since F7 as well as by enthusiast users of other distributions. The new drivers have consequently been recommended as the default ones since 2.6.33, in order to fix some severe usability problems of FireWire on Linux due to limitations of the old stack. It is now high time to announce when the obsolete drivers will be removed. Signed-off-by: Stefan Richter <stefanr@s5r6.in-berlin.de> Acked-by: Jarod Wilson <jarod@redhat.com>

2010-05-25mm: compaction: add a tunable that decides when memory should be compacted ↵Mel Gorman1-0/+15
and when it should be reclaimed The kernel applies some heuristics when deciding if memory should be compacted or reclaimed to satisfy a high-order allocation. One of these is based on the fragmentation. If the index is below 500, memory will not be compacted. This choice is arbitrary and not based on data. To help optimise the system and set a sensible default for this value, this patch adds a sysctl extfrag_threshold. The kernel will only compact memory if the fragmentation index is above the extfrag_threshold.

2010-05-25mm: compaction: add /sys trigger for per-node memory compactionMel Gorman1-0/+7
Add a per-node sysfs file called compact. When the file is written to, each zone in that node is compacted. The intention that this would be used by something like a job scheduler in a batch system before a job starts so that the job can allocate the maximum number of hugepages without significant start-up cost.

Add a proc file /proc/sys/vm/compact_memory. When an arbitrary value is written to the file, all zones are compacted. The expected user of such a trigger is a job scheduler that prepares the system before the target application runs.
