2012-03-07lib: reduce the use of module.h wherever possiblePaul Gortmaker1-1/+1
For files only using THIS_MODULE and/or EXPORT_SYMBOL, map them onto including export.h -- or if the file isn't even using those, then just delete the include. Fix up any implicit include dependencies that were being masked by module.h along the way. Signed-off-by: Paul Gortmaker <paul.gortmaker@windriver.com>
2011-09-13locking, printk: Annotate logbuf_lock as rawThomas Gleixner1-2/+2
The logbuf_lock lock can be taken in atomic context and therefore cannot be preempted on -rt - annotate it. In mainline this change documents the low level nature of the lock - otherwise there's no functional difference. Lockdep and Sparse checking will work as usual.

2010-04-07ratelimit: fix the return value when __ratelimit() fails to acquire the lockYong Zhang1-1/+1
The log of commit edaac8e3167501cda336231d00611bf59c164346 ("ratelimit: Fix/allow use in atomic contexts"), indicates that we want to suppress the callback when the trylock fails.

2009-10-23ratelimit: Make suppressed output messages more usefulChristian Borntraeger1-3/+3
Today I got: [39648.224782] Registered led device: iwl-phy0::TX [40676.545099] __ratelimit: 246 callbacks suppressed [40676.545103] abcdef[23675]: segfault at 0 ... as you can see the ratelimit message contains a function prefix. Since this is always __ratelimit, this wont help much. This patch changes __ratelimit and printk_ratelimit to print the function name that calls ratelimit. This will pinpoint the responsible function, as long as not several different places call ratelimit with the same ratelimit state at the same time. In that case we catch only one random function that calls ratelimit after the wait period.

2009-09-22printk: Remove ratelimit.h from kernel.hIngo Molnar1-1/+1
Decouple kernel.h from ratelimit.h: the global declaration of printk's ratelimit_state is not needed, and it leads to messy circular dependencies due to ratelimit.h's (new) adding of a spinlock_types.h include.

2009-09-22ratelimit: Fix/allow use in atomic contextsIngo Molnar1-1/+9
I'd like to use printk_ratelimit() in NMI context, but it's not robust right now due to spinlock usage in lib/ratelimit.c. If an NMI is unlucky enough to hit just that spot we might lock up trying to take the spinlock again. Fix that by using a trylock variant. If we contend on that lock we can genuinely skip the message because the state is just being accessed by another CPU (or by this CPU). ( We could use atomics for the suppressed messages field, but i doubt it matters in practice and it makes the code heavier. ) Cc: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Cc: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Cc: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org> Cc: David S.

2009-09-22ratelimit: Use per ratelimit context lockingIngo Molnar1-16/+13
I'd like to use printk_ratelimit() in atomic context, but that's not possible right now due to the spinlock usage this commit introduced more than a year ago: 717115e: printk ratelimiting rewrite As a first step push the lock into the ratelimit state structure. This allows us to deal with locking failures to be considered as an event related to that state being too busy. Also clean up the code a bit (without changing functionality): - tidy up the definitions - clean up the code flow This also shrinks the code a tiny bit: text data bss dec hex filename 264 0 4 268 10c ratelimit.o.before 255 0 0 255 ff ratelimit.o.after ( Whole-kernel data size got a bit larger, because we have two ratelimit-state data structures right now. ) Cc: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Cc: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Cc: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org> Cc: David S.

2008-07-25printk ratelimiting rewriteDave Young1-25/+30
All ratelimit user use same jiffies and burst params, so some messages (callbacks) will be lost. For example: a call printk_ratelimit(5 * HZ, 1) b call printk_ratelimit(5 * HZ, 1) before the 5*HZ timeout of a, then b will will be supressed. - rewrite __ratelimit, and use a ratelimit_state as parameter. Thanks for hints from andrew. - Add WARN_ON_RATELIMIT, update rcupreempt.h - remove __printk_ratelimit - use __ratelimit in net_ratelimit Signed-off-by: Dave Young <hidave.darkstar@gmail.com> Cc: "David S.

2008-04-29isolate ratelimit from printk.c for other useDave Young1-0/+51
Due to the rcupreempt.h WARN_ON trigged, I got 2G syslog file. For some serious complaining of kernel, we need repeat the warnings, so here I isolate the ratelimit part of printk.c to a standalone file.
