2011-10-31lib/bitmap.c: quiet sparse noise about address spaceH Hartley Sweeten1-4/+6
__bitmap_parse() and __bitmap_parselist() both take a pointer to a kernel buffer as a parameter and then cast it to a pointer to user buffer for use in cases when the parameter is_user indicates that the buffer is actually located in user space. This casting, and the casts in the callers, results in sparse noise like the following: warning: incorrect type in initializer (different address spaces) expected char const [noderef] <asn:1>*ubuf got char const *buf warning: cast removes address space of expression Since these casts are intentional, use __force to quiet the noise.

2011-08-03lib, Make gen_pool memory allocator locklessHuang Ying1-2/+0
This version of the gen_pool memory allocator supports lockless operation. This makes it safe to use in NMI handlers and other special unblockable contexts that could otherwise deadlock on locks. This is implemented by using atomic operations and retries on any conflicts. The disadvantage is that there may be livelocks in extreme cases. For better scalability, one gen_pool allocator can be used for each CPU. The lockless operation only works if there is enough memory available. If new memory is added to the pool a lock has to be still taken. So any user relying on locklessness has to ensure that sufficient memory is preallocated. The basic atomic operation of this allocator is cmpxchg on long. On architectures that don't have NMI-safe cmpxchg implementation, the allocator can NOT be used in NMI handler. So code uses the allocator in NMI handler should depend on CONFIG_ARCH_HAVE_NMI_SAFE_CMPXCHG.

2011-07-26cpusets: randomize node rotor used in cpuset_mem_spread_node()Michal Hocko1-1/+1
[ This patch has already been accepted as commit 0ac0c0d0f837 but later reverted (commit 35926ff5fba8) because it itroduced arch specific __node_random which was defined only for x86 code so it broke other archs. This is a followup without any arch specific code. Other than that there are no functional changes.] Some workloads that create a large number of small files tend to assign too many pages to node 0 (multi-node systems). Part of the reason is that the rotor (in cpuset_mem_spread_node()) used to assign nodes starts at node 0 for newly created tasks. This patch changes the rotor to be initialized to a random node number of the cpuset.

2011-05-25bitmap, irq: add smp_affinity_list interface to /proc/irqMike Travis1-12/+97
Manually adjusting the smp_affinity for IRQ's becomes unwieldy when the cpu count is large. Setting smp affinity to cpus 256 to 263 would be: echo 000000ff,00000000,00000000,00000000,00000000,00000000,00000000,00000000 > smp_affinity instead of: echo 256-263 > smp_affinity_list Think about what it looks like for cpus around say, 4088 to 4095. We already have many alternate "list" interfaces: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpuX/indexY/shared_cpu_list /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpuX/topology/thread_siblings_list /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpuX/topology/core_siblings_list /sys/devices/system/node/nodeX/cpulist /sys/devices/pci***/***/local_cpulist Add a companion interface, smp_affinity_list to use cpu lists instead of cpu maps. This conforms to other companion interfaces where both a map and a list interface exists. This required adding a bitmap_parselist_user() function in a manner similar to the bitmap_parse_user() function.

2009-08-21Make bitmask 'and' operators return a result codeLinus Torvalds1-4/+8
When 'and'ing two bitmasks (where 'andnot' is a variation on it), some cases want to know whether the result is the empty set or not. In particular, the TLB IPI sending code wants to do cpumask operations and determine if there are any CPU's left in the final set. So this just makes the bitmask (and cpumask) functions return a boolean for whether the result has any bits set.

2008-04-28mempolicy: add bitmap_onto() and bitmap_fold() operationsPaul Jackson1-0/+158
The following adds two more bitmap operators, bitmap_onto() and bitmap_fold(), with the usual cpumask and nodemask wrappers. The bitmap_onto() operator computes one bitmap relative to another. If the n-th bit in the origin mask is set, then the m-th bit of the destination mask will be set, where m is the position of the n-th set bit in the relative mask. The bitmap_fold() operator folds a bitmap into a second that has bit m set iff the input bitmap has some bit n set, where m == n mod sz, for the specified sz value. There are two substantive changes between this patch and its predecessor bitmap_relative: 1) Renamed bitmap_relative() to be bitmap_onto(). 2) Added bitmap_fold(). The essential motivation for bitmap_onto() is to provide a mechanism for converting a cpuset-relative CPU or Node mask to an absolute mask. Cpuset relative masks are written as if the current task were in a cpuset whose CPUs or Nodes were just the consecutive ones numbered 0..N-1, for some N. The bitmap_onto() operator is provided in anticipation of adding support for the first such cpuset relative mask, by the mbind() and set_mempolicy() system calls, using a planned flag of MPOL_F_RELATIVE_NODES. These bitmap operators (and their nodemask wrappers, in particular) will be used in code that converts the user specified cpuset relative memory policy to a specific system node numbered policy, given the current mems_allowed of the tasks cpuset. Such cpuset relative mempolicies will address two deficiencies of the existing interface between cpusets and mempolicies: 1) A task cannot at present reliably establish a cpuset relative mempolicy because there is an essential race condition, in that the tasks cpuset may be changed in between the time the task can query its cpuset placement, and the time the task can issue the applicable mbind or set_memplicy system call. 2) A task cannot at present establish what cpuset relative mempolicy it would like to have, if it is in a smaller cpuset than it might have mempolicy preferences for, because the existing interface only allows specifying mempolicies for nodes currently allowed by the cpuset. Cpuset relative mempolicies are useful for tasks that don't distinguish particularly between one CPU or Node and another, but only between how many of each are allowed, and the proper placement of threads and memory pages on the various CPUs and Nodes available. The motivation for the added bitmap_fold() can be seen in the following example. Let's say an application has specified some mempolicies that presume 16 memory nodes, including say a mempolicy that specified MPOL_F_RELATIVE_NODES (cpuset relative) nodes 12-15. Then lets say that application is crammed into a cpuset that only has 8 memory nodes, 0-7. If one just uses bitmap_onto(), this mempolicy, mapped to that cpuset, would ignore the requested relative nodes above 7, leaving it empty of nodes. That's not good; better to fold the higher nodes down, so that some nodes are included in the resulting mapped mempolicy. In this case, the mempolicy nodes 12-15 are taken modulo 8 (the weight of the mems_allowed of the confining cpuset), resulting in a mempolicy specifying nodes 4-7.

2006-10-11[PATCH] bitmap: parse input from kernel and user buffersReinette Chatre1-11/+43
lib/bitmap.c:bitmap_parse() is a library function that received as input a user buffer. This seemed to have originated from the way the write_proc function of the /proc filesystem operates. This has been reworked to not use kmalloc and eliminates a lot of get_user() overhead by performing one access_ok before using __get_user(). We need to test if we are in kernel or user space (is_user) and access the buffer differently. We cannot use __get_user() to access kernel addresses in all cases, for example in architectures with separate address space for kernel and user. This function will be useful for other uses as well; for example, taking input for /sysfs instead of /proc, so it was changed to accept kernel buffers. We have this use for the Linux UWB project, as part as the upcoming bandwidth allocator code. Only a few routines used this function and they were changed too.

Add support to the lib/bitmap.c bitmap_*_region() routines For bitmap regions larger than one word (nbits > BITS_PER_LONG). This removes a BUG_ON() in lib bitmap. I have an updated store queue API for SH that is currently using this with relative success, and at first glance, it seems like this could be useful for x86 (arch/i386/kernel/pci-dma.c) as well. Particularly for anything using dma_declare_coherent_memory() on large areas and that attempts to allocate large buffers from that space. Paul Jackson also did some cleanup to this patch.

2006-03-24[PATCH] bitmap: region cleanupPaul Jackson1-26/+38
Paul Mundt <lethal@linux-sh.org> says: This patch set implements a number of patches to clean up and restructure the bitmap region code, in addition to extending the interface to support multiword spanning allocations. The current implementation (before this patch set) is limited by only being able to allocate pages <= BITS_PER_LONG, as noted by the strategically positioned BUG_ON() at lib/bitmap.c:752: /* We don't do regions of pages > BITS_PER_LONG. The * algorithm would be a simple look for multiple zeros in the * array, but there's no driver today that needs this. If you * trip this BUG(), you get to code it... */ BUG_ON(pages > BITS_PER_LONG); As I seem to have been the first person to trigger this, the result ends up being the following patch set with the help of Paul Jackson. The final patch in the series eliminates quite a bit of code duplication, so the bitmap code size ends up being smaller than the current implementation as an added bonus. After these are applied, it should already be possible to do multiword allocations with dma_alloc_coherent() out of ranges established by dma_declare_coherent_memory() on x86 without having to change any of the code, and the SH store queue API will follow up on this as the other user that needs support for this. This patch: Some code cleanup on the lib/bitmap.c bitmap_*_region() routines: * spacing * variable names * comments Has no change to code function.

2006-01-08[PATCH] cpuset: better bitmap remap defaultsPaul Jackson1-45/+44
Fix the default behaviour for the remap operators in bitmap, cpumask and nodemask. As previously submitted, the pair of masks <A, B> defined a map of the positions of the set bits in A to the corresponding bits in B. This is still true. The issue is how to map the other positions, corresponding to the unset (0) bits in A. As previously submitted, they were all mapped to the first set bit position in B, a constant map. When I tried to code per-vma mempolicy rebinding using these remap operators, I realized this was wrong. This patch changes the default to map all the unset bit positions in A to the same positions in B, the identity map. For example, if A has bits 4-7 set, and B has bits 9-12 set, then the map defined by the pair <A, B> maps each bit position in the first 32 bits as follows: 0 ==> 0 ... 3 ==> 3 4 ==> 9 ... 7 ==> 12 8 ==> 8 9 ==> 9 ... 31 ==> 31 This now corresponds to the typical behaviour desired when migrating pages and policies from one cpuset to another. The pages on nodes within the original cpuset, and the references in memory policies to nodes within the original cpuset, are migrated to the corresponding cpuset-relative nodes in the destination cpuset. Other pages and node references are left untouched. Signed-off-by: Paul Jackson <pj@sgi.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2005-10-30[PATCH] cpusets: bitmap and mask remap operatorsPaul Jackson1-0/+166
In the forthcoming task migration support, a key calculation will be mapping cpu and node numbers from the old set to the new set while preserving cpuset-relative offset. For example, if a task and its pages on nodes 8-11 are being migrated to nodes 24-27, then pages on node 9 (the 2nd node in the old set) should be moved to node 25 (the 2nd node in the new set.) As with other bitmap operations, the proper way to code this is to provide the underlying calculation in lib/bitmap.c, and then to provide the usual cpumask and nodemask wrappers. This patch provides that. These operations are termed 'remap' operations. Both remapping a single bit and a set of bits is supported.

Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
