2008-03-15sched: fix overload performance: buddy wakeupsPeter Zijlstra2-1/+27
Currently we schedule to the leftmost task in the runqueue. When the runtimes are very short because of some server/client ping-pong, especially in over-saturated workloads, this will cycle through all tasks trashing the cache. Reduce cache trashing by keeping dependent tasks together by running newly woken tasks first. However, by not running the leftmost task first we could starve tasks because the wakee can gain unlimited runtime. Therefore we only run the wakee if its within a small (wakeup_granularity) window of the leftmost task. This preserves fairness, but does alternate server/client task groups.

2008-03-15sched: min_vruntime fixPeter Zijlstra1-18/+28
Current min_vruntime tracking is incorrect and will cause serious problems when we don't run the leftmost task for some reason. min_vruntime does two things; 1) it's used to determine a forward direction when the u64 vruntime wraps, 2) it's used to track the leftmost vruntime to position newly enqueued tasks from. The current logic advances min_vruntime whenever the current task's vruntime advance. Because the current task may pass the leftmost task still waiting we're failing the second goal. This causes new tasks to be placed too far ahead and thus penalizes their runtime. Fix this by making min_vruntime the min_vruntime of the waiting tasks by tracking it in enqueue/dequeue, and compare against current's vruntime to obtain the absolute minimum when placing new tasks.

2008-03-15sched: fix race in schedule()Hiroshi Shimamoto1-22/+16
Fix a hard to trigger crash seen in the -rt kernel that also affects the vanilla scheduler. There is a race condition between schedule() and some dequeue/enqueue functions; rt_mutex_setprio(), __setscheduler() and sched_move_task(). When scheduling to idle, idle_balance() is called to pull tasks from other busy processor. It might drop the rq lock. It means that those 3 functions encounter on_rq=0 and running=1. The current task should be put when running. Here is a possible scenario: CPU0 CPU1 | schedule() | ->deactivate_task() | ->idle_balance() | -->load_balance_newidle() rt_mutex_setprio() | | --->double_lock_balance() *get lock *rel lock * on_rq=0, ruuning=1 | * sched_class is changed | *rel lock *get lock : | : ->put_prev_task_rt() ->pick_next_task_fair() => panic The current process of CPU1(P1) is scheduling. Deactivated P1, and the scheduler looks for another process on other CPU's runqueue because CPU1 will be idle. idle_balance(), load_balance_newidle() and double_lock_balance() are called and double_lock_balance() could drop the rq lock. On the other hand, CPU0 is trying to boost the priority of P1. The result of boosting only P1's prio and sched_class are changed to RT. The sched entities of P1 and P1's group are never put. It makes cfs_rq invalid, because the cfs_rq has curr and no leaf, but pick_next_task_fair() is called, then the kernel panics.

2008-03-11Hibernation: Fix mark_nosave_pages()Rafael J. Wysocki1-7/+34
There is a problem in the hibernation code that triggers on some NUMA systems on which pfn_valid() returns 'true' for some PFNs that don't belong to any zone. Namely, there is a BUG_ON() in memory_bm_find_bit() that triggers for PFNs not belonging to any zone and passing the pfn_valid() test. On the affected systems it triggers when we mark PFNs reported by the platform as not saveable, because the PFNs in question belong to a region mapped directly using iorepam() (i.e. the ACPI data area) and they pass the pfn_valid() test. Modify memory_bm_find_bit() so that it returns an error if given PFN doesn't belong to any zone instead of crashing the kernel and ignore the result returned by it in mark_nosave_pages(), while marking the "nosave" memory regions. This doesn't affect the hibernation functionality, as we won't touch the PFNs in question anyway. http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9966 . Signed-off-by: Rafael J.

2008-03-11keep rd->online and cpu_online_map in syncGregory Haskins1-1/+2
It is possible to allow the root-domain cache of online cpus to become out of sync with the global cpu_online_map. This is because we currently trigger removal of cpus too early in the notifier chain. Other DOWN_PREPARE handlers may in fact run and reconfigure the root-domain topology, thereby stomping on our own offline handling. The end result is that rd->online may become out of sync with cpu_online_map, which results in potential task misrouting. So change the offline handling to be more tightly coupled with the global offline process by triggering on CPU_DYING intead of CPU_DOWN_PREPARE.

2008-03-10rcu: move PREEMPT_RCU config option back under PREEMPTPaul E. McKenney1-0/+15
The original preemptible-RCU patch put the choice between classic and preemptible RCU into kernel/Kconfig.preempt, which resulted in build failures on machines not supporting CONFIG_PREEMPT. This choice was therefore moved to init/Kconfig, which worked, but placed the choice between classic and preemptible RCU at the top level, a very obtuse choice indeed. This patch changes from the Kconfig "choice" mechanism to a pair of booleans, only one of which (CONFIG_PREEMPT_RCU) is user-visible, and is located in kernel/Kconfig.preempt, where one would expect it to be. The other (CONFIG_CLASSIC_RCU) is in init/Kconfig so that it is available to all architectures, hopefully avoiding build breakage. Thanks to Roman Zippel for suggesting this approach.

2008-03-10modules: warn about suspicious return values from module's ->init() hookAlexey Dobriyan1-0/+8
Return value convention of module's init functions is 0/-E. Sometimes, e.g. during forward-porting mistakes happen and buggy module created, where result of comparison "workqueue != NULL" is propagated all the way up to sys_init_module. What happens is that some other module created workqueue in question, our module created it again and module was successfully loaded. Or it could be some other bug. Let's make such mistakes much more visible. In retrospective, such messages would noticeably shorten some of my head-scratching sessions. Note, that dump_stack() is just a way to get attention from user. Sample message: sys_init_module: 'foo'->init suspiciously returned 1, it should follow 0/-E convention sys_init_module: loading module anyway...

2008-03-09cpu hotplug: adjust root-domain->online span in response to hotplug eventGregory Haskins1-11/+7
We currently set the root-domain online span automatically when the domain is added to the cpu if the cpu is already a member of cpu_online_map. This was done as a hack/bug-fix for s2ram, but it also causes a problem with hotplug CPU_DOWN transitioning. The right way to fix the original problem is to actually respond to CPU_UP events, instead of CPU_ONLINE, which is already too late.

2008-03-09time: remove obsolete CLOCK_TICK_ADJUSTRoman Zippel2-5/+12
The first version of the ntp_interval/tick_length inconsistent usage patch was recently merged as bbe4d18ac2e058c56adb0cd71f49d9ed3216a405 http://git.kernel.org/gitweb.cgi?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commit;h=bbe4d18ac2e058c56adb0cd71f49d9ed3216a405 While the fix did greatly improve the situation, it was correctly pointed out by Roman that it does have a small bug: If the users change clocksources after the system has been running and NTP has made corrections, the correctoins made against the old clocksource will be applied against the new clocksource, causing error. The second attempt, which corrects the issue in the NTP_INTERVAL_LENGTH definition has also made it up-stream as commit e13a2e61dd5152f5499d2003470acf9c838eab84 http://git.kernel.org/gitweb.cgi?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commit;h=e13a2e61dd5152f5499d2003470acf9c838eab84 Roman has correctly pointed out that CLOCK_TICK_ADJUST is calculated based on the PIT's frequency, and isn't really relevant to non-PIT driven clocksources (that is, clocksources other then jiffies and pit). This patch reverts both of those changes, and simply removes CLOCK_TICK_ADJUST. This does remove the granularity error correction for users of PIT and Jiffies clocksource users, but the granularity error but for the majority of users, it should be within the 500ppm range NTP can accommodate for. For systems that have granularity errors greater then 500ppm, the "ntp_tick_adj=" boot option can be used to compensate.

2008-03-07sched: balance RT task resched only on runqueueSteven Rostedt1-2/+4
Sripathi Kodi reported a crash in the -rt kernel: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=435674 this is due to a place that can reschedule a task without holding the tasks runqueue lock. This was caused by the RT balancing code that pulls RT tasks to the current run queue and will reschedule the current task. There's a slight chance that the pulling of the RT tasks will release the current runqueue's lock and retake it (in the double_lock_balance). During this time that the runqueue is released, the current task can migrate to another runqueue. In the prio_changed_rt code, after the pull, if the current task is of lesser priority than one of the RT tasks pulled, resched_task is called on the current task. If the current task had migrated in that small window, resched_task will be called without holding the runqueue lock for the runqueue that the task is on. This race condition also exists in the mainline kernel and this patch adds a check to make sure the task hasn't migrated before calling resched_task.

2008-03-04freezer vs stopped or tracedRoland McGrath2-19/+26
This changes the "freezer" code used by suspend/hibernate in its treatment of tasks in TASK_STOPPED (job control stop) and TASK_TRACED (ptrace) states. As I understand it, the intent of the "freezer" is to hold all tasks from doing anything significant. For this purpose, TASK_STOPPED and TASK_TRACED are "frozen enough". It's possible the tasks might resume from ptrace calls (if the tracer were unfrozen) or from signals (including ones that could come via timer interrupts, etc). But this doesn't matter as long as they quickly block again while "freezing" is in effect. Some minor adjustments to the signal.c code make sure that try_to_freeze() very shortly follows all wakeups from both kinds of stop. This lets the freezer code safely leave stopped tasks unmolested. Changing this fixes the longstanding bug of seeing after resuming from suspend/hibernate your shell report "[1] Stopped" and the like for all your jobs stopped by ^Z et al, as if you had freshly fg'd and ^Z'd them. It also removes from the freezer the arcane special case treatment for ptrace'd tasks, which relied on intimate knowledge of ptrace internals.

2008-03-03exit_notify: fix kill_orphaned_pgrp() usage with mt exitOleg Nesterov1-3/+4
1. exit_notify() always calls kill_orphaned_pgrp(). This is wrong, we should do this only when the whole process exits. 2. exit_notify() uses "current" as "ignored_task", obviously wrong. Use ->group_leader instead. Test case: void hup(int sig) { printf("HUP received\n"); } void *tfunc(void *arg) { sleep(2); printf("sub-thread exited\n"); return NULL; } int main(int argc, char *argv[]) { if (!fork()) { signal(SIGHUP, hup); kill(getpid(), SIGSTOP); exit(0); } pthread_t thr; pthread_create(&thr, NULL, tfunc, NULL); sleep(1); printf("main thread exited\n"); syscall(__NR_exit, 0); return 0; } output: main thread exited HUP received Hangup With this patch the output is: main thread exited sub-thread exited HUP received Signed-off-by: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@tv-sign.ru> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2008-03-03will_become_orphaned_pgrp: partially fix insufficient ->exit_state checkOleg Nesterov1-9/+8
p->exit_state != 0 doesn't mean this process is dead, it may have sub-threads. Change the code to use "p->exit_state && thread_group_empty(p)" instead. Without this patch, ^Z doesn't deliver SIGTSTP to the foreground process if the main thread has exited. However, the new check is not perfect either. There is a window when exit_notify() drops tasklist and before release_task(). Suppose that the last (non-leader) thread exits. This means that entire group exits, but thread_group_empty() is not true yet. As Eric pointed out, is_global_init() is wrong as well, but I did not dare to do other changes. Just for the record, has_stopped_jobs() is absolutely wrong too. But we can't fix it now, we should first fix SIGNAL_STOP_STOPPED issues. Even with this patch ^Z doesn't play well with the dead main thread. The task is stopped correctly but do_wait(WSTOPPED) won't see it. This is another unrelated issue, will be (hopefully) fixed separately. Signed-off-by: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@tv-sign.ru> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

2008-03-01[PATCH] drop EOE records from printkSteve Grubb1-6/+8
Hi, While we are looking at the printk issue, I see that its printk'ing the EOE (end of event) records which is really not something that we need in syslog. Its really intended for the realtime audit event stream handled by the audit daemon. So, lets avoid printk'ing that record type.

2008-03-01[RFC] AUDIT: do not panic when printk loses messagesEric Paris1-1/+4
On the latest kernels if one was to load about 15 rules, set the failure state to panic, and then run service auditd stop the kernel will panic. This is because auditd stops, then the script deletes all of the rules. These deletions are sent as audit messages out of the printk kernel interface which is already known to be lossy. These will overun the default kernel rate limiting (10 really fast messages) and will call audit_panic(). The same effect can happen if a slew of avc's come through while auditd is stopped. This can be fixed a number of ways but this patch fixes the problem by just not panicing if auditd is not running. We know printk is lossy and if the user chooses to set the failure mode to panic and tries to use printk we can't make any promises no matter how hard we try, so why try? At least in this way we continue to get lost message accounting and will eventually know that things went bad. The other change is to add a new call to audit_log_lost() if auditd disappears. We already pulled the skb off the queue and couldn't send it so that message is lost. At least this way we will account for the last message and panic if the machine is configured to panic. This code path should only be run if auditd dies for unforeseen reasons. If auditd closes correctly audit_pid will get set to 0 and we won't walk this code path.

2008-02-29rcupreempt: remove never-migrates assumption from rcu_process_callbacks()Paul E. McKenney1-2/+4
This patch fixes a potentially invalid access to a per-CPU variable in rcu_process_callbacks(). This per-CPU access needs to be done in such a way as to guarantee that the code using it cannot move to some other CPU before all uses of the value accessed have completed. Even though this code is currently only invoked from softirq context, which currrently cannot migrate to some other CPU, life would be better if this code did not silently make such an assumption.

This fixes a oops encountered when doing hibernate/resume in presence of PREEMPT_RCU. The problem was that the code failed to disable preemption when accessing a per-CPU variable. This is OK when called from code that already has preemption disabled, but such is not the case from the suspend/resume code path.
