lockup_detector: Combine nmi_watchdog and softlockup detector
The new nmi_watchdog (which uses the perf event subsystem) is very similar in structure to the softlockup detector. Using Ingo's suggestion, I combined the two functionalities into one file: kernel/watchdog.c. Now both the nmi_watchdog (or hardlockup detector) and softlockup detector sit on top of the perf event subsystem, which is run every 60 seconds or so to see if there are any lockups. To detect hardlockups, cpus not responding to interrupts, I implemented an hrtimer that runs 5 times for every perf event overflow event. If that stops counting on a cpu, then the cpu is most likely in trouble. To detect softlockups, tasks not yielding to the scheduler, I used the previous kthread idea that now gets kicked every time the hrtimer fires. If the kthread isn't being scheduled neither is anyone else and the warning is printed to the console. I tested this on x86_64 and both the softlockup and hardlockup paths work. V2: - cleaned up the Kconfig and softlockup combination - surrounded hardlockup cases with #ifdef CONFIG_PERF_EVENTS_NMI - seperated out the softlockup case from perf event subsystem - re-arranged the enabling/disabling nmi watchdog from proc space - added cpumasks for hardlockup failure cases - removed fallback to soft events if no PMU exists for hard events V3: - comment cleanups - drop support for older softlockup code - per_cpu cleanups - completely remove software clock base hardlockup detector - use per_cpu masking on hard/soft lockup detection - #ifdef cleanups - rename config option NMI_WATCHDOG to LOCKUP_DETECTOR - documentation additions V4: - documentation fixes - convert per_cpu to __get_cpu_var - powerpc compile fixes V5: - split apart warn flags for hard and soft lockups TODO: - figure out how to make an arch-agnostic clock2cycles call (if possible) to feed into perf events as a sample period [fweisbec: merged conflict patch] Signed-off-by: Don Zickus <dzickus@redhat.com> Cc: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Cc: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org> Cc: Cyrill Gorcunov <gorcunov@gmail.com> Cc: Eric Paris <eparis@redhat.com> Cc: Randy Dunlap <randy.dunlap@oracle.com> LKML-Reference: <1273266711-18706-2-git-send-email-dzickus@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@gmail.com>
