2011-03-23x86: mark associated mm when running a task in 32 bit compatibility modeStephen Wilson1-0/+8
This patch simply follows the same practice as for setting the TIF_IA32 flag. In particular, an mm is marked as holding 32-bit tasks when a 32-bit binary is exec'ed. Both ELF and a.out formats are updated.

2011-01-12cpuidle/x86/perf: fix power:cpu_idle double end events and throw cpu_idle ↵Thomas Renninger1-6/+0
events from the cpuidle layer Currently intel_idle and acpi_idle driver show double cpu_idle "exit idle" events -> this patch fixes it and makes cpu_idle events throwing less complex. It also introduces cpu_idle events for all architectures which use the cpuidle subsystem, namely: - arch/arm/mach-at91/cpuidle.c - arch/arm/mach-davinci/cpuidle.c - arch/arm/mach-kirkwood/cpuidle.c - arch/arm/mach-omap2/cpuidle34xx.c - arch/drivers/acpi/processor_idle.c (for all cases, not only mwait) - arch/x86/kernel/process.c (did throw events before, but was a mess) - drivers/idle/intel_idle.c (did throw events before) Convention should be: Fire cpu_idle events inside the current pm_idle function (not somewhere down the the callee tree) to keep things easy. Current possible pm_idle functions in X86: c1e_idle, poll_idle, cpuidle_idle_call, mwait_idle, default_idle -> this is really easy is now. This affects userspace: The type field of the cpu_idle power event can now direclty get mapped to: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpuX/cpuidle/stateX/{name,desc,usage,time,...} instead of throwing very CPU/mwait specific values. This change is not visible for the intel_idle driver. For the acpi_idle driver it should only be visible if the vendor misses out C-states in his BIOS. Another (perf timechart) patch reads out cpuidle info of cpu_idle events from: /sys/.../cpuidle/stateX/*, then the cpuidle events are mapped to the correct C-/cpuidle state again, even if e.g. vendors miss out C-states in their BIOS and for example only export C1 and C3. -> everything is fine.

2011-01-04perf: Clean up power events by introducing new, more generic onesThomas Renninger1-0/+2
Add these new power trace events: power:cpu_idle power:cpu_frequency power:machine_suspend The old C-state/idle accounting events: power:power_start power:power_end Have now a replacement (but we are still keeping the old tracepoints for compatibility): power:cpu_idle and power:power_frequency is replaced with: power:cpu_frequency power:machine_suspend is newly introduced. Jean Pihet has a patch integrated into the generic layer (kernel/power/suspend.c) which will make use of it. the type= field got removed from both, it was never used and the type is differed by the event type itself. perf timechart userspace tool gets adjusted in a separate patch.

2010-09-09x86-64, fpu: Disable preemption when using TS_USEDFPUBrian Gerst1-1/+1
Consolidates code and fixes the below race for 64-bit. commit 9fa2f37bfeb798728241cc4a19578ce6e4258f25 Author: torvalds <torvalds> Date: Tue Sep 2 07:37:25 2003 +0000 Be a lot more careful about TS_USEDFPU and preemption We had some races where we testecd (or set) TS_USEDFPU together with sequences that depended on the setting (like clearing or setting the TS flag in %cr0) and we could be preempted in between, which screws up the FPU state, since preemption will itself change USEDFPU and the TS flag. This makes it a lot more explicit: the "internal" low-level FPU functions ("__xxxx_fpu()") all require preemption to be disabled, and the exported "real" functions will make sure that is the case. One case - in __switch_to() - was switched to the non-preempt-safe internal version, since the scheduler itself has already disabled preemption.

2010-04-23x86-64: Clear a 64-bit FS/GS base on fork if selector is nonzeroH. Peter Anvin1-2/+2
When we do a thread switch, we clear the outgoing FS/GS base if the corresponding selector is nonzero. This is taken by __switch_to() as an entry invariant; it does not verify that it is true on entry. However, copy_thread() doesn't enforce this constraint, which can result in inconsistent results after fork(). Make copy_thread() match the behavior of __switch_to().

2010-03-26x86, perf, bts, mm: Delete the never used BTS-ptrace codePeter Zijlstra1-8/+0
Support for the PMU's BTS features has been upstreamed in v2.6.32, but we still have the old and disabled ptrace-BTS, as Linus noticed it not so long ago. It's buggy: TIF_DEBUGCTLMSR is trampling all over that MSR without regard for other uses (perf) and doesn't provide the flexibility needed for perf either. Its users are ptrace-block-step and ptrace-bts, since ptrace-bts was never used and ptrace-block-step can be implemented using a much simpler approach. So axe all 3000 lines of it. That includes the *locked_memory*() APIs in mm/mlock.c as well.

2009-11-08hw-breakpoints: Rewrite the hw-breakpoints layer on top of perf eventsFrederic Weisbecker1-25/+1
This patch rebase the implementation of the breakpoints API on top of perf events instances. Each breakpoints are now perf events that handle the register scheduling, thread/cpu attachment, etc.. The new layering is now made as follows: ptrace kgdb ftrace perf syscall \ | / / \ | / / / Core breakpoint API / / | / | / Breakpoints perf events | | Breakpoints PMU ---- Debug Register constraints handling (Part of core breakpoint API) | | Hardware debug registers Reasons of this rewrite: - Use the centralized/optimized pmu registers scheduling, implying an easier arch integration - More powerful register handling: perf attributes (pinned/flexible events, exclusive/non-exclusive, tunable period, etc...) Impact: - New perf ABI: the hardware breakpoints counters - Ptrace breakpoints setting remains tricky and still needs some per thread breakpoints references. Todo (in the order): - Support breakpoints perf counter events for perf tools (ie: implement perf_bpcounter_event()) - Support from perf tools Changes in v2: - Follow the perf "event " rename - The ptrace regression have been fixed (ptrace breakpoint perf events weren't released when a task ended) - Drop the struct hw_breakpoint and store generic fields in perf_event_attr. - Separate core and arch specific headers, drop asm-generic/hw_breakpoint.h and create linux/hw_breakpoint.h - Use new generic len/type for breakpoint - Handle off case: when breakpoints api is not supported by an arch Changes in v3: - Fix broken CONFIG_KVM, we need to propagate the breakpoint api changes to kvm when we exit the guest and restore the bp registers to the host. Changes in v4: - Drop the hw_breakpoint_restore() stub as it is only used by KVM - EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL hw_breakpoint_restore() as KVM can be built as a module - Restore the breakpoints unconditionally on kvm guest exit: TIF_DEBUG_THREAD doesn't anymore cover every cases of running breakpoints and vcpu->arch.switch_db_regs might not always be set when the guest used debug registers. (Waiting for a reliable optimization) Changes in v5: - Split-up the asm-generic/hw-breakpoint.h moving to linux/hw_breakpoint.h into a separate patch - Optimize the breakpoints restoring while switching from kvm guest to host. We only want to restore the state if we have active breakpoints to the host, otherwise we don't care about messed-up address registers. - Add asm/hw_breakpoint.h to Kbuild - Fix bad breakpoint type in trace_selftest.c Changes in v6: - Fix wrong header inclusion in trace.h (triggered a build error with CONFIG_FTRACE_SELFTEST Signed-off-by: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@gmail.com> Cc: Prasad <prasad@linux.vnet.ibm.com> Cc: Alan Stern <stern@rowland.harvard.edu> Cc: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org> Cc: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com> Cc: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org> Cc: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Cc: Jan Kiszka <jan.kiszka@web.de> Cc: Jiri Slaby <jirislaby@gmail.com> Cc: Li Zefan <lizf@cn.fujitsu.com> Cc: Avi Kivity <avi@redhat.com> Cc: Paul Mackerras <paulus@samba.org> Cc: Mike Galbraith <efault@gmx.de> Cc: Masami Hiramatsu <mhiramat@redhat.com> Cc: Paul Mundt <lethal@linux-sh.org>

Move compat_start_thread() to process_64.c, remove gratuitious differences, and fix a few items which mostly look like bit rot. In particular, compat_start_thread() didn't do free_thread_xstate(), which means it was hanging on to the xstate store area even when it was not needed. It was also not setting old_rsp, but it looks like that generally shouldn't matter for a 32-bit process.

2009-08-03x86, percpu: Collect hot percpu variables into one cachelineTejun Heo1-3/+0
On x86_64, percpu variables current_task and kernel_stack are used for get_current() and current_thread_info() respectively and thus are often used close to each other. Move definition of current_task to kernel/cpu/common.c right above kernel_stack definition and align it to cacheline so that they always fall into the same cacheline. Two percpu variables defined there together - irq_stack_ptr and irq_count - are also pretty hot and will benefit from sharing the cacheline. For consistency, current_task definition for x86_32 is also moved to kernel/cpu/common.c. Putting current_task and kernel_stack into the same cacheline was suggested by Linus Torvalds.

2009-06-17x86-64: move clts into batch cpu state updates when preloading fpuJeremy Fitzhardinge1-9/+18
When a task is likely to be using the fpu, we preload its state during the context switch, rather than waiting for it to run an fpu instruction. Make sure the clts() happens while we're doing batched fpu state updates to optimise paravirtualized context switches.

2009-06-17x86-64: move unlazy_fpu() into lazy cpu state part of context switchJeremy Fitzhardinge1-3/+3
Make sure that unlazy_fpu()'s stts gets batched along with the other cpu state changes during context switch. (32-bit already does this.) This makes sure it gets batched when running paravirtualized.

2009-02-11x86: fix x86_32 stack protector bugsTejun Heo1-6/+5
Impact: fix x86_32 stack protector Brian Gerst found out that %gs was being initialized to stack_canary instead of stack_canary - 20, which basically gave the same canary value for all threads. Fixing this also exposed the following bugs. * cpu_idle() didn't call boot_init_stack_canary() * stack canary switching in switch_to() was being done too late making the initial run of a new thread use the old stack canary value. Fix all of them and while at it update comment in cpu_idle() about calling boot_init_stack_canary().
