2010-09-08perf probe: Fix handling of arguments namesMasami Hiramatsu1-13/+19
Don't make argument names from raw parameters (means the parameters are written in kprobe-tracer syntax), because the argument syntax may include special characters. Just leave it, then kprobe-tracer gives a new name.

2010-09-08tracing: Do not allow llseek to set_ftrace_filterSteven Rostedt1-1/+1
Reading the file set_ftrace_filter does three things. 1) shows whether or not filters are set for the function tracer 2) shows what functions are set for the function tracer 3) shows what triggers are set on any functions 3 is independent from 1 and 2. The way this file currently works is that it is a state machine, and as you read it, it may change state. But this assumption breaks when you use lseek() on the file. The state machine gets out of sync and the t_show() may use the wrong pointer and cause a kernel oops. Luckily, this will only kill the app that does the lseek, but the app dies while holding a mutex. This prevents anyone else from using the set_ftrace_filter file (or any other function tracing file for that matter). A real fix for this is to rewrite the code, but that is too much for a -rc release or stable. This patch simply disables llseek on the set_ftrace_filter() file for now, and we can do the proper fix for the next major release.

2010-09-03perf, x86: Try to handle unknown nmis with an enabled PMURobert Richter1-13/+46
When the PMU is enabled it is valid to have unhandled nmis, two events could trigger 'simultaneously' raising two back-to-back NMIs. If the first NMI handles both, the latter will be empty and daze the CPU. The solution to avoid an 'unknown nmi' massage in this case was simply to stop the nmi handler chain when the PMU is enabled by stating the nmi was handled. This has the drawback that a) we can not detect unknown nmis anymore, and b) subsequent nmi handlers are not called. This patch addresses this. Now, we check this unknown NMI if it could be a PMU back-to-back NMI. Otherwise we pass it and let the kernel handle the unknown nmi. This is a debug log: cpu #6, nmi #32333, skip_nmi #32330, handled = 1, time = 1934364430 cpu #6, nmi #32334, skip_nmi #32330, handled = 1, time = 1934704616 cpu #6, nmi #32335, skip_nmi #32336, handled = 2, time = 1936032320 cpu #6, nmi #32336, skip_nmi #32336, handled = 0, time = 1936034139 cpu #6, nmi #32337, skip_nmi #32336, handled = 1, time = 1936120100 cpu #6, nmi #32338, skip_nmi #32336, handled = 1, time = 1936404607 cpu #6, nmi #32339, skip_nmi #32336, handled = 1, time = 1937983416 cpu #6, nmi #32340, skip_nmi #32341, handled = 2, time = 1938201032 cpu #6, nmi #32341, skip_nmi #32341, handled = 0, time = 1938202830 cpu #6, nmi #32342, skip_nmi #32341, handled = 1, time = 1938443743 cpu #6, nmi #32343, skip_nmi #32341, handled = 1, time = 1939956552 cpu #6, nmi #32344, skip_nmi #32341, handled = 1, time = 1940073224 cpu #6, nmi #32345, skip_nmi #32341, handled = 1, time = 1940485677 cpu #6, nmi #32346, skip_nmi #32347, handled = 2, time = 1941947772 cpu #6, nmi #32347, skip_nmi #32347, handled = 1, time = 1941949818 cpu #6, nmi #32348, skip_nmi #32347, handled = 0, time = 1941951591 Uhhuh.

2010-09-03perf, x86: Fix accidentally ack'ing a second event on intel perf counterDon Zickus1-4/+2
During testing of a patch to stop having the perf subsytem swallow nmis, it was uncovered that Nehalem boxes were randomly getting unknown nmis when using the perf tool. Moving the ack'ing of the PMI closer to when we get the status allows the hardware to properly re-set the PMU bit signaling another PMI was triggered during the processing of the first PMI. This allows the new logic for dealing with the shortcomings of multiple PMIs to handle the extra NMI by 'eat'ing it later. Now one can wonder why are we getting a second PMI when we disable all the PMUs in the begining of the NMI handler to prevent such a case, for that I do not know. But I know the fix below helps deal with this quirk. Tested on multiple Nehalems where the problem was occuring. With the patch, the code now loops a second time to handle the second PMI (whereas before it was not).

2010-09-01lockup_detector: Sync touch_*_watchdog back to old semanticsDon Zickus1-5/+12
During my rewrite, the semantics of touch_nmi_watchdog and touch_softlockup_watchdog changed enough to break some drivers (mostly over preemptable regions). These are cases where long delays on one CPU (due to print_delay for example) can cause long delays on other CPUs - so we must 'touch' the nmi_watchdog flag of those other CPUs as well. This change brings those touch_*_watchdog() functions back in line with to how they used to work.

2010-08-30perf_events: Fix time tracking for events with pid != -1 and cpu != -1Stephane Eranian1-4/+22
Per-thread events with a cpu filter, i.e., cpu != -1, were not reporting correct timings when the thread never ran on the monitored cpu. The time enabled was reported as a negative value. This patch fixes the problem by updating tstamp_stopped, tstamp_running in event_sched_out() for events with filters and which are marked as INACTIVE. The function group_sched_out() is modified to systematically call into event_sched_out() to avoid duplicating the timing adjustment code twice. With the patch, I now get: $ task_cpu -i -e unhalted_core_cycles,unhalted_core_cycles noploop 2 noploop for 2 seconds CPU0 0 unhalted_core_cycles (ena=1,991,136,594, run=0) CPU0 0 unhalted_core_cycles (ena=1,991,136,594, run=0) CPU1 0 unhalted_core_cycles (ena=1,991,136,594, run=0) CPU1 0 unhalted_core_cycles (ena=1,991,136,594, run=0) CPU2 0 unhalted_core_cycles (ena=1,991,136,594, run=0) CPU2 0 unhalted_core_cycles (ena=1,991,136,594, run=0) CPU3 4,747,990,931 unhalted_core_cycles (ena=1,991,136,594, run=1,991,136,594) CPU3 4,747,990,931 unhalted_core_cycles (ena=1,991,136,594, run=1,991,136,594) Signed-off-by: Stephane Eranian <eranian@gmail.com> Acked-by: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Cc: paulus@samba.org Cc: davem@davemloft.net Cc: fweisbec@gmail.com Cc: perfmon2-devel@lists.sf.net Cc: eranian@google.com LKML-Reference: <4c76802d.aae9d80a.115d.70fe@mx.google.com> Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>
2010-08-27perf: Initialize callchains roots's childen hitsFrederic Weisbecker1-0/+1
Each histogram entry has a callchain root that stores the callchain samples. However we forgot to initialize the tracking of children hits of these roots, which then got random values on their creation. The root children hits is multiplied by the minimum percentage of hits provided by the user, and the result becomes the minimum hits expected from children branches. If the random value due to the uninitialization is big enough, then this minimum number of hits can be huge and eventually filter every children branches. The end result was invisible callchains. All we need to fix this is to initialize the children hits of the root.

2010-08-25oprofile: fix crash when accessing freed task structsRobert Richter2-15/+14
This patch fixes a crash during shutdown reported below. The crash is caused by accessing already freed task structs. The fix changes the order for registering and unregistering notifier callbacks. All notifiers must be initialized before buffers start working. To stop buffer synchronization we cancel all workqueues, unregister the notifier callback and then flush all buffers. After all of this we finally can free all tasks listed. This should avoid accessing freed tasks.

2010-08-24[S390] fix tlb flushing vs. concurrent /proc accessesMartin Schwidefsky8-6/+28
The tlb flushing code uses the mm_users field of the mm_struct to decide if each page table entry needs to be flushed individually with IPTE or if a global flush for the mm_struct is sufficient after all page table updates have been done. The comment for mm_users says "How many users with user space?" but the /proc code increases mm_users after it found the process structure by pid without creating a new user process. Which makes mm_users useless for the decision between the two tlb flusing methods. The current code can be confused to not flush tlb entries by a concurrent access to /proc files if e.g. a fork is in progres.

2010-08-23sparc64: Get rid of indirect p1275 PROM call buffer.David S. Miller7-297/+456
This is based upon a report by Meelis Roos showing that it's possible that we'll try to fetch a property that is 32K in size with some devices. With the current fixed 3K buffer we use for moving data in and out of the firmware during PROM calls, that simply won't work. In fact, it will scramble random kernel data during bootup. The reasoning behind the temporary buffer is entirely historical. It used to be the case that we had problems referencing dynamic kernel memory (including the stack) early in the boot process before we explicitly told the firwmare to switch us over to the kernel trap table. So what we did was always give the firmware buffers that were locked into the main kernel image. But we no longer have problems like that, so get rid of all of this indirect bounce buffering. Besides fixing Meelis's bug, this also makes the kernel data about 3K smaller. It was also discovered during these conversions that the implementation of prom_retain() was completely wrong, so that was fixed here as well. Currently that interface is not in use.

2010-08-24powerpc: Initialise paca->kstack before early_setup_secondaryMatt Evans1-3/+3
As early setup calls down to slb_initialize(), we must have kstack initialised before checking "should we add a bolted SLB entry for our kstack?" Failing to do so means stack access requires an SLB miss exception to refill an entry dynamically, if the stack isn't accessible via SLB(0) (kernel text & static data). It's not always allowable to take such a miss, and intermittent crashes will result. Primary CPUs don't have this issue; an SLB entry is not bolted for their stack anyway (as that lives within SLB(0)). This patch therefore only affects the init of secondaries.

2010-08-24powerpc: Fix bogus it_blocksize in VIO iommu codeAnton Blanchard4-7/+8
When looking at some issues with the virtual ethernet driver I noticed that TCE allocation was following a very strange pattern: address 00e9000 length 2048 address 0409000 length 2048 <----- address 0429000 length 2048 address 0449000 length 2048 address 0469000 length 2048 address 0489000 length 2048 address 04a9000 length 2048 address 04c9000 length 2048 address 04e9000 length 2048 address 4009000 length 2048 <----- address 4029000 length 2048 Huge unexplained gaps in what should be an empty TCE table. It turns out it_blocksize, the amount we want to align the next allocation to, was c0000000fe903b20. Completely bogus. Initialise it to something reasonable in the VIO IOMMU code, and use kzalloc everywhere to protect against this when we next add a non compulsary field to iommu code and forget to initialise it.
