2006-09-29[PATCH] futex_find_get_task(): don't take tasklist_lockOleg Nesterov1-2/+2
It is ok to do find_task_by_pid() + get_task_struct() under rcu_read_lock(), we cand drop tasklist_lock. Note that testing of ->exit_state is racy with or without tasklist anyway.

copy_process: // holds tasklist_lock + ->siglock /* * inherit ioprio */ p->ioprio = current->ioprio; Why? ->ioprio was already copied in dup_task_struct(). I guess this is needed to ensure that the child can't escape sys_ioprio_set(IOPRIO_WHO_{PGRP,USER}), yes? In that case we don't need ->siglock held, and the comment should be updated.

2006-09-29[PATCH] sched_setscheduler: fix? policy checksOleg Nesterov1-20/+18
I am not sure this patch is correct: I can't understand what the current code does, and I don't know what it was supposed to do. The comment says: * can't change policy, except between SCHED_NORMAL * and SCHED_BATCH: The code: if (((policy != SCHED_NORMAL && p->policy != SCHED_BATCH) && (policy != SCHED_BATCH && p->policy != SCHED_NORMAL)) && But this is equivalent to: if ( (is_rt_policy(policy) && has_rt_policy(p)) && which means something different. We can't _decrease_ the current ->rt_priority with such a check (if rlim[RLIMIT_RTPRIO] == 0). Probably, it was supposed to be: if ( !(policy == SCHED_NORMAL && p->policy == SCHED_BATCH) && !(policy == SCHED_BATCH && p->policy == SCHED_NORMAL) this matches the comment, but strange: it doesn't allow to _drop_ the realtime priority when rlim[RLIMIT_RTPRIO] == 0. I think the right check would be: /* can't set/change rt policy */ if (is_rt_policy(policy) && policy != p->policy && !rlim_rtprio) return -EPERM; Signed-off-by: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@tv-sign.ru> Cc: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de> Cc: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Cc: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org> Cc: Nick Piggin <nickpiggin@yahoo.com.au> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>

2006-09-29[PATCH] simplify update_times (avoid jiffies/jiffies_64 aliasing problem)Atsushi Nemoto1-13/+6
Pass ticks to do_timer() and update_times(), and adjust x86_64 and s390 timer interrupt handler with this change. Currently update_times() calculates ticks by "jiffies - wall_jiffies", but callers of do_timer() should know how many ticks to update. Passing ticks get rid of this redundant calculation. Also there are another redundancy pointed out by Martin Schwidefsky. This cleanup make a barrier added by 5aee405c662ca644980c184774277fc6d0769a84 needless. So this patch removes it. As a bonus, this cleanup make wall_jiffies can be removed easily, since now wall_jiffies is always synced with jiffies. (This patch does not really remove wall_jiffies.

2006-09-29[PATCH] posix-timers: Fix the flags handling in posix_cpu_nsleep()Toyo Abe1-26/+58
When a posix_cpu_nsleep() sleep is interrupted by a signal more than twice, it incorrectly reports the sleep time remaining to the user. Because posix_cpu_nsleep() doesn't report back to the user when it's called from restart function due to the wrong flags handling. This patch, which applies after previous one, moves the nanosleep() function from posix_cpu_nsleep() to do_cpu_nanosleep() and cleans up the flags handling appropriately.

2006-09-29[PATCH] posix-timers: Fix clock_nanosleep() doesn't return the remaining ↵Toyo Abe4-15/+76
time in compatibility mode The clock_nanosleep() function does not return the time remaining when the sleep is interrupted by a signal. This patch creates a new call out, compat_clock_nanosleep_restart(), which handles returning the remaining time after a sleep is interrupted. This patch revives clock_nanosleep_restart(). It is now accessed via the new call out. The compat_clock_nanosleep_restart() is used for compatibility access. Since this is implemented in compatibility mode the normal path is virtually unaffected - no real performance impact.

2006-09-29[PATCH] memory ordering in __kfifo primitivesPaul E. McKenney1-0/+28
Both __kfifo_put() and __kfifo_get() have header comments stating that if there is but one concurrent reader and one concurrent writer, locking is not necessary. This is almost the case, but a couple of memory barriers are needed. Another option would be to change the header comments to remove the bit about locking not being needed, and to change the those callers who currently don't use locking to add the required locking. The attachment analyzes this approach, but the patch below seems simpler. Signed-off-by: Paul E.

2006-09-29[PATCH] pidspace: is_init()Sukadev Bhattiprolu6-5/+6
This is an updated version of Eric Biederman's is_init() patch. (http://lkml.org/lkml/2006/2/6/280). It applies cleanly to 2.6.18-rc3 and replaces a few more instances of ->pid == 1 with is_init(). Further, is_init() checks pid and thus removes dependency on Eric's other patches for now. Eric's original description: There are a lot of places in the kernel where we test for init because we give it special properties. Most significantly init must not die. This results in code all over the kernel test ->pid == 1. Introduce is_init to capture this case. With multiple pid spaces for all of the cases affected we are looking for only the first process on the system, not some other process that has pid == 1. Signed-off-by: Eric W.

2006-09-29[PATCH] clean up and remove some extra spinlocks from rtmutexSteven Rostedt1-26/+25
Oleg brought up some interesting points about grabbing the pi_lock for some protections. In this discussion, I realized that there are some places that the pi_lock is being grabbed when it really wasn't necessary. Also this patch does a little bit of clean up. This patch basically does three things: 1) renames the "boost" variable to "chain_walk". Since it is used in the debugging case when it isn't going to be boosted. It better describes what the test is going to do if it succeeds. 2) moves get_task_struct to just before the unlocking of the wait_lock. This removes duplicate code, and makes it a little easier to read. The owner wont go away while either the pi_lock or the wait_lock are held. 3) removes the pi_locking and owner blocked checking completely from the debugging case. This is because the grabbing the lock and doing the check, then releasing the lock is just so full of races. It's just as good to go ahead and call the pi_chain_walk function, since after releasing the lock the owner can then block anyway, and we would have missed that. For the debug case, we really do want to do the chain walk to test for deadlocks anyway.

Otherwise, kmod will crash in kernel/module.c:mod_sysfs_setup() since the kset in module_subsys is not initialized yet. I only noticed this problem because occasionally, kmod loads the modules for my SCSI and Ethernet adapters very early, during the boot process itself.

In de_thread we move pids from one process to another, a rather ugly case. The function transfer_pid makes it clear what we are doing, and makes the action atomic. This is useful we ever want to atomically traverse the process group and session lists, in a rcu safe manner. Even if the atomic properties this change should be a win as transfer_pid should be less code to execute than executing both attach_pid and detach_pid, and this should make de_thread slightly smaller as only a single function call needs to be emitted. The only downside is that the code might be slower to execute as the odds are against transfer_pid being in cache. Signed-off-by: Eric W.

2006-09-27[PATCH] inode_diet: Replace inode.u.generic_ip with inode.i_privateTheodore Ts'o1-1/+1
The following patches reduce the size of the VFS inode structure by 28 bytes on a UP x86. (It would be more on an x86_64 system). This is a 10% reduction in the inode size on a UP kernel that is configured in a production mode (i.e., with no spinlock or other debugging functions enabled; if you want to save memory taken up by in-core inodes, the first thing you should do is disable the debugging options; they are responsible for a huge amount of bloat in the VFS inode structure). This patch: The filesystem or device-specific pointer in the inode is inside a union, which is pretty pointless given that all 30+ users of this field have been using the void pointer. Get rid of the union and rename it to i_private, with a comment to explain who is allowed to use the void pointer. This is just a cleanup, but it allows us to reuse the union 'u' for something something where the union will actually be used.

Move the fallback arch_vma_name() to a sensible place (kernel/signal.c). Currently it's in fs/proc/task_mmu.c, a file that is dependent on both CONFIG_PROC_FS and CONFIG_MMU being enabled, but it's used from kernel/signal.c from where it is called unconditionally.

2006-09-26Resources: insert identical resources above existing resourcesMatthew Wilcox1-16/+16
If you have two resources which aree exactly the same size, insert_resource() currently inserts the new one below the existing one. This is wrong because there's no way to insert a resource of the same size above an existing one. I took this opportunity to rewrite the initial loop to be a for-loop instead of a goto-loop and fix the documentation.

2006-09-26[PATCH] swsusp: Use memory bitmaps during resumeRafael J. Wysocki4-246/+186
Make swsusp use memory bitmaps to store its internal information during the resume phase of the suspend-resume cycle. If the pfns of saveable pages are saved during the suspend phase instead of the kernel virtual addresses of these pages, we can use them during the resume phase directly to set the corresponding bits in a memory bitmap. Then, this bitmap is used to mark the page frames corresponding to the pages that were saveable before the suspend (aka "unsafe" page frames). Next, we allocate as many page frames as needed to store the entire suspend image and make sure that there will be some extra free "safe" page frames for the list of PBEs constructed later. Subsequently, the image is loaded and, if possible, the data loaded from it are written into their "original" page frames (ie. the ones they had occupied before the suspend). The image data that cannot be written into their "original" page frames are loaded into "safe" page frames and their "original" kernel virtual addresses, as well as the addresses of the "safe" pages containing their copies, are stored in a list of PBEs. Finally, the list of PBEs is used to copy the remaining image data into their "original" page frames (this is done atomically, by the architecture-dependent parts of swsusp). Signed-off-by: Rafael J.

2006-09-26[PATCH] swsusp: Introduce memory bitmapsRafael J. Wysocki3-70/+540
Introduce the memory bitmap data structure and make swsusp use in the suspend phase. The current swsusp's internal data structure is not very efficient from the memory usage point of view, so it seems reasonable to replace it with a data structure that will require less memory, such as a pair of bitmaps. The idea is to use bitmaps that may be allocated as sets of individual pages, so that we can avoid making allocations of order greater than 0. For this reason the memory bitmap structure consists of several linked lists of objects that contain pointers to memory pages with the actual bitmap data. Still, for a typical system all of these lists fit in a single page, so it's reasonable to introduce an additional mechanism allowing us to allocate all of them efficiently without sacrificing the generality of the design. This is done with the help of the chain_allocator structure and associated functions. We need to use two memory bitmaps during the suspend phase of the suspend-resume cycle. One of them is necessary for marking the saveable pages, and the second is used to mark the pages in which to store the copies of them (aka image pages). First, the bitmaps are created and we allocate as many image pages as needed (the corresponding bits in the second bitmap are set as soon as the pages are allocated). Second, the bits corresponding to the saveable pages are set in the first bitmap and the saveable pages are copied to the image pages. Finally, the first bitmap is used to save the kernel virtual addresses of the saveable pages and the second one is used to save the contents of the image pages. Signed-off-by: Rafael J.
