2008-11-06cpumask: introduce new API, without changing anythingRusty Russell1-0/+73
Impact: introduce new APIs We want to deprecate cpumasks on the stack, as we are headed for gynormous numbers of CPUs. Eventually, we want to head towards an undefined 'struct cpumask' so they can never be declared on stack. 1) New cpumask functions which take pointers instead of copies. (cpus_* -> cpumask_*) 2) Several new helpers to reduce requirements for temporary cpumasks (cpumask_first_and, cpumask_next_and, cpumask_any_and) 3) Helpers for declaring cpumasks on or offstack for large NR_CPUS (cpumask_var_t, alloc_cpumask_var and free_cpumask_var) 4) 'struct cpumask' for explicitness and to mark new-style code. 5) Make iterator functions stop at nr_cpu_ids (a runtime constant), not NR_CPUS for time efficiency and for smaller dynamic allocations in future. 6) cpumask_copy() so we can allocate less than a full cpumask eventually (for alloc_cpumask_var), and so we can eliminate the 'struct cpumask' definition eventually. 7) work_on_cpu() helper for doing task on a CPU, rather than saving old cpumask for current thread and manipulating it. 8) smp_call_function_many() which is smp_call_function_mask() except taking a cpumask pointer. Note that this patch simply introduces the new functions and leaves the obsolescent ones in place. This is to simplify the transition patches.

2008-10-29Driver core: fix 'dynamic_debug' cmd line parameterJason Baron1-1/+3
In testing 2.6.28-rc1, I found that passing 'dynamic_printk' on the command line didn't activate the debug code. The problem is that dynamic_printk_setup() (which activates the debugging) is being called before dynamic_printk_init() is called (which initializes infrastructure). Fix this by setting setting the state to 'DYNAMIC_ENABLED_ALL' in dynamic_printk_setup(), which will also cause all subsequent modules to have debugging automatically started, which is probably the behavior we want.

2008-10-23swiotlb: remove panic for alloc_coherent failureFUJITA Tomonori1-2/+4
swiotlb_alloc_coherent calls panic() when allocated swiotlb pages is not fit for a device's dma mask. However, alloc_coherent failure is not a disaster at all. AFAIK, none of other x86 and IA64 IOMMU implementations don't crash in case of alloc_coherent failure. There are some drivers that don't check alloc_coherent failure but not many (about ten and I've already started to fix some of them). alloc_coherent returns NULL in case of failure so it's likely that these guilty drivers crash immediately. So swiotlb doesn't need to call panic() just for them.

2008-10-23[SCSI] lib: string_get_size(): don't hang on zero; no decimals on exactH. Peter Anvin1-15/+19
We would hang forever when passing a zero to string_get_size(). Furthermore, string_get_size() would produce decimals on a value small enough to be exact. Finally, a few formatting issues are inconsistent with standard SI style guidelines. - If the value is less than the divisor, skip the entire rounding step. This prints out all small values including zero as integers, without decimals. - Add a space between the value and the symbol for the unit, consistent with standard SI practice. - Lower case k in kB since we are talking about powers of 10. - Finally, change "int" to "unsigned int" in one place to shut up a gcc warning when compiling the code out-of-kernel for testing.

2008-10-16kobject: Fix kobject_rename and !CONFIG_SYSFSEric W. Biederman1-13/+5
When looking at kobject_rename I found two bugs with that exist when sysfs support is disabled in the kernel. kobject_rename does not change the name on the kobject when sysfs support is not compiled in. kobject_rename without locking attempts to check the validity of a rename operation, which the kobject layer simply does not have the infrastructure to do. This patch documents the previously unstated requirement of kobject_rename that is the responsibility of the caller to provide mutual exclusion and to be certain that the new_name for the kobject is valid. This patch modifies sysfs_rename_dir in !CONFIG_SYSFS case to call kobject_set_name to actually change the kobject_name. This patch removes the bogus and misleading check in kobject_rename that attempts to see if a rename is valid. The check is bogus because we do not have the proper locking. The check is misleading because it looks like we can and do perform checking at the kobject level that we don't. Signed-off-by: Eric W.

2008-10-16driver core: basic infrastructure for per-module dynamic debug messagesJason Baron3-0/+475
Base infrastructure to enable per-module debug messages. I've introduced CONFIG_DYNAMIC_PRINTK_DEBUG, which when enabled centralizes control of debugging statements on a per-module basis in one /proc file, currently, <debugfs>/dynamic_printk/modules. When, CONFIG_DYNAMIC_PRINTK_DEBUG, is not set, debugging statements can still be enabled as before, often by defining 'DEBUG' for the proper compilation unit. Thus, this patch set has no affect when CONFIG_DYNAMIC_PRINTK_DEBUG is not set. The infrastructure currently ties into all pr_debug() and dev_dbg() calls. That is, if CONFIG_DYNAMIC_PRINTK_DEBUG is set, all pr_debug() and dev_dbg() calls can be dynamically enabled/disabled on a per-module basis. Future plans include extending this functionality to subsystems, that define their own debug levels and flags. Usage: Dynamic debugging is controlled by the debugfs file, <debugfs>/dynamic_printk/modules. This file contains a list of the modules that can be enabled. The format of the file is as follows: <module_name> <enabled=0/1> . . . <module_name> : Name of the module in which the debug call resides <enabled=0/1> : whether the messages are enabled or not For example: snd_hda_intel enabled=0 fixup enabled=1 driver enabled=0 Enable a module: $echo "set enabled=1 <module_name>" > dynamic_printk/modules Disable a module: $echo "set enabled=0 <module_name>" > dynamic_printk/modules Enable all modules: $echo "set enabled=1 all" > dynamic_printk/modules Disable all modules: $echo "set enabled=0 all" > dynamic_printk/modules Finally, passing "dynamic_printk" at the command line enables debugging for all modules. This mode can be turned off via the above disable command.

Extended devt introduces non-contiguos device numbers. This patch implements a debug option which forces most devt allocations to be from the extended area and spreads them out. This is enabled by default if DEBUG_KERNEL is set and achieves... 1. Detects code paths in kernel or userland which expect predetermined consecutive device numbers. 2. When something goes wrong, avoid corruption as adding to the minor of earlier partition won't lead to the wrong but valid device.

2008-10-09klist: don't iterate over deleted entriesTejun Heo1-26/+70
A klist entry is kept on the list till all its current iterations are finished; however, a new iteration after deletion also iterates over deleted entries as long as their reference count stays above zero. This causes problems for cases where there are users which iterate over the list while synchronized against list manipulations and natuarally expect already deleted entries to not show up during iteration. This patch implements dead flag which gets set on deletion so that iteration can skip already deleted entries. The dead flag piggy backs on the lowest bit of knode->n_klist and only visible to klist implementation proper. While at it, drop klist_iter->i_head as it's redundant and doesn't offer anything in semantics or performance wise as klist_iter->i_klist is dereferenced on every iteration anyway.

2008-10-03[SCSI] lib: add generic helper to print sizes rounded to the correct SI rangeJames Bottomley2-1/+66
This patch adds the ability to print sizes in either units of 10^3 (SI) or 2^10 (Binary) units. It rounds up to three significant figures and can be used for either memory or storage capacities. Oh, and I'm fully aware that 64 bits is only 16EiB ... the Zetta and Yotta units are added for future proofing against the day we have 128 bit computers ...

2008-10-03rcu: RCU-based detection of stalled CPUs for Classic RCUPaul E. McKenney1-1/+1
This patch adds stalled-CPU detection to Classic RCU. This capability is enabled by a new config variable CONFIG_RCU_CPU_STALL_DETECTOR, which defaults disabled. This is a debugging feature to detect infinite loops in kernel code, not something that non-kernel-hackers would be expected to care about. This feature can detect looping CPUs in !PREEMPT builds and looping CPUs with preemption disabled in PREEMPT builds. This is essentially a port of this functionality from the treercu patch, replacing the stall debug patch that is already in tip/core/rcu (commit 67182ae1c4). The changes from the patch in tip/core/rcu include making the config variable name match that in treercu, changing from seconds to jiffies to avoid spurious warnings, and printing a boot message when this feature is enabled.

2008-09-11sg: disable interrupts inside sg_copy_bufferFUJITA Tomonori1-0/+4
The callers of sg_copy_buffer must disable interrupts before calling it (since it uses kmap_atomic). Some callers use it on interrupt-disabled code but some need to take the trouble to disable interrupts just for this. No wonder they forget about it and we hit a bug like: http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11529 James said that it might be better to disable interrupts inside the function rather than risk the callers getting it wrong.

2008-09-10swiotlb: fix back-off path when memory allocation failsDaniel J Blueman1-1/+1
This fixes a SWIOTLB oops With SWIOTLB being enabled and straight-forward page allocation failure [1], the swiotlb_alloc_coherent fall-back path hits an issue [2], resulting in my webcam failing to work. At the time of oops, RDI is clearly a pointer to a structure which has arrived as NULL, leading to the typo in swiotlb_map_single's callsite arguments. Correctly passing the device structure [3] addresses the issue and gets my webcam working again (the allocation failure still occuring). --- [1] skype: page allocation failure. order:3, mode:0x1 Pid: 5895, comm: skype Not tainted 2.6.27-rc6-235c-debug #1 Call Trace: [<ffffffff802b7cf0>] __alloc_pages_internal+0x4a0/0x5d0 [<ffffffff802d5ddd>] alloc_pages_current+0xad/0x110 [<ffffffff802b4ccd>] __get_free_pages+0x1d/0x60 [<ffffffff8046cd39>] swiotlb_alloc_coherent+0x49/0x180 [<ffffffff80212731>] dma_alloc_coherent+0x281/0x310 [<ffffffff805621c0>] hcd_buffer_alloc+0x50/0x90 [<ffffffff805547fd>] usb_buffer_alloc+0x2d/0x40 [<ffffffffa0056763>] uvc_alloc_urb_buffers+0x53/0xf0 [uvcvideo] [<ffffffffa0056958>] uvc_init_video+0x158/0x3e0 [uvcvideo] [<ffffffffa0056c17>] uvc_video_enable+0x37/0x80 [uvcvideo] [<ffffffffa0055853>] uvc_v4l2_do_ioctl+0x723/0x1260 [uvcvideo] [<ffffffff8026dd61>] ?
