2013-05-28x86: Increase precision of x86_platform.get/set_wallclock()David Vrabel1-2/+2
All the virtualized platforms (KVM, lguest and Xen) have persistent wallclocks that have more than one second of precision. read_persistent_wallclock() and update_persistent_wallclock() allow for nanosecond precision but their implementation on x86 with x86_platform.get/set_wallclock() only allows for one second precision. This means guests may see a wallclock time that is off by up to 1 second. Make set_wallclock() and get_wallclock() take a struct timespec parameter (which allows for nanosecond precision) so KVM and Xen guests may start with a more accurate wallclock time and a Xen dom0 can maintain a more accurate wallclock for guests.

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip Pull x86 mm changes from Peter Anvin: "This is a huge set of several partly interrelated (and concurrently developed) changes, which is why the branch history is messier than one would like. The *really* big items are two humonguous patchsets mostly developed by Yinghai Lu at my request, which completely revamps the way we create initial page tables. In particular, rather than estimating how much memory we will need for page tables and then build them into that memory -- a calculation that has shown to be incredibly fragile -- we now build them (on 64 bits) with the aid of a "pseudo-linear mode" -- a #PF handler which creates temporary page tables on demand. This has several advantages: 1. It makes it much easier to support things that need access to data very early (a followon patchset uses this to load microcode way early in the kernel startup). 2. It allows the kernel and all the kernel data objects to be invoked from above the 4 GB limit. This allows kdump to work on very large systems. 3. It greatly reduces the difference between Xen and native (Xen's equivalent of the #PF handler are the temporary page tables created by the domain builder), eliminating a bunch of fragile hooks. The patch series also gets us a bit closer to W^X. Additional work in this pull is the 64-bit get_user() work which you were also involved with, and a bunch of cleanups/speedups to __phys_addr()/__pa()." * 'x86-mm-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip: (105 commits) x86, mm: Move reserving low memory later in initialization x86, doc: Clarify the use of asm("%edx") in uaccess.h x86, mm: Redesign get_user with a __builtin_choose_expr hack x86: Be consistent with data size in getuser.S x86, mm: Use a bitfield to mask nuisance get_user() warnings x86/kvm: Fix compile warning in kvm_register_steal_time() x86-32: Add support for 64bit get_user() x86-32, mm: Remove reference to alloc_remap() x86-32, mm: Remove reference to resume_map_numa_kva() x86-32, mm: Rip out x86_32 NUMA remapping code x86/numa: Use __pa_nodebug() instead x86: Don't panic if can not alloc buffer for swiotlb mm: Add alloc_bootmem_low_pages_nopanic() x86, 64bit, mm: hibernate use generic mapping_init x86, 64bit, mm: Mark data/bss/brk to nx x86: Merge early kernel reserve for 32bit and 64bit x86: Add Crash kernel low reservation x86, kdump: Remove crashkernel range find limit for 64bit memblock: Add memblock_mem_size() x86, boot: Not need to check setup_header version for setup_data ...

2011-07-22lguest: use a special 1:1 linear pagetable mode until first switch.Rusty Russell2-8/+12
The Host used to create some page tables for the Guest to use at the top of Guest memory; it would then tell the Guest where this was. In particular, it created linear mappings for 0 and 0xC0000000 addresses because lguest used to switch to its real page tables quite late in boot. However, since d50d8fe19 Linux initialized boot page tables in head_32.S even before the "are we lguest?" boot jump. So, now we can simplify things: the Host pagetable code assumes 1:1 linear mapping until it first calls the LHCALL_NEW_PGTABLE hypercall, which we now do before we reach C code. This also means that the Host doesn't need to know anything about the Guest's PAGE_OFFSET. (Non-Linux guests might not even have such a thing). Signed-off-by: Rusty Russell <rusty@rustcorp.com.au>

2010-12-16lguest: populate initial_page_tableRusty Russell2-3/+105
Two x86 patches broke lguest: 1) v2.6.35-492-g72d7c3b, which changed x86 to use the memblock allocator. In lguest, the host places linear page tables at the top of mem, which used to be enough to get us up to the swapper_pg_dir page tables. With the first patch, the direct mapping tables used that memory: Before: kernel direct mapping tables up to 4000000 @ 7000-1a000 After: kernel direct mapping tables up to 4000000 @ 3fed000-4000000 I initially fixed this by lying about the amount of memory we had, so the kernel wouldn't blatt the lguest boot pagetables (yuk!), but then... 2) v2.6.36-rc8-54-gb40827f, which made x86 boot use initial_page_table. This was initialized in a part of head_32.S which isn't executed by lguest; it is then copied into swapper_pg_dir. So we have to initialize it; and anyway we switch to it before we blatt the old tables, so that fixes the previous damage as well. For the moment, I cut & pasted the code into lguest's boot code, but next merge window I will merge them.

2010-12-16lguest: restore boot speedRusty Russell1-4/+7
lguest is dumb and drops *all* the pagetables for set_pte (which is only used for kernel mapping manipulation, so it's OK without highmem). But it's used a lot in boot, too. As a guest optimization, we suppressed this flushing until the first page switch. Now we have initial_page_table, that happens much earlier, so extend the heuristic to wait until we switch to something other than the swapper_pg_dir or initial_page_table. As measured on my laptop under kvm, this dropped the time-to-mount-root from 48 seconds to 4.3 seconds. Signed-off-by: Rusty Russell <rusty@rustcorp.com.au>

2010-09-21lguest: update comments to reflect LHCALL_LOAD_GDT_ENTRY.Rusty Russell1-5/+8
We used to have a hypercall which reloaded the entire GDT, then we switched to one which loaded a single entry (to match the IDT code). Some comments were not updated, so fix them. Signed-off-by: Rusty Russell <rusty@rustcorp.com.au> Reported by: Eviatar Khen <eviatarkhen@gmail.com>

2010-04-14lguest: stop using KVM hypercall mechanismRusty Russell2-32/+31
This is a partial revert of 4cd8b5e2a159 "lguest: use KVM hypercalls"; we revert to using (just as questionable but more reliable) int $15 for hypercalls. I didn't revert the register mapping, so we still use the same calling convention as kvm. KVM in more recent incarnations stopped injecting a fault when a guest tried to use the VMCALL instruction from ring 1, so lguest under kvm fails to make hypercalls. It was nice to share code with our KVM cousins, but this was overreach.

2010-03-14ACPI: delete the "acpi=ht" boot optionLen Brown1-1/+0
acpi=ht was important in 2003 -- before ACPI was universally deployed and enabled by default in the major Linux distributions. At that time, there were a fair number of people who or chose to, or needed to, run with acpi=off, yet also wanted access to Hyper-threading. Today we find that many invocations of "acpi=ht" are accidental, and thus is it possible that it is doing more harm than good. In 2.6.34, we warn on invocation of acpi=ht. In 2.6.35, we delete the boot option. Signed-off-by: Len Brown <len.brown@intel.com>

2009-09-16x86: Move get/set_wallclock to x86_platform_opsFeng Tang1-3/+1
get/set_wallclock() have already a set of platform dependent implementations (default, EFI, paravirt). MRST will add another variant. Moving them to platform ops simplifies the existing code and minimizes the effort to integrate new variants.

2009-08-31x86: Move tsc_calibration to x86_init_opsThomas Gleixner1-1/+1
TSC calibration is modified by the vmware hypervisor and paravirt by separate means. Moorestown wants to add its own calibration routine as well. So make calibrate_tsc a proper x86_init_ops function and override it by paravirt or by the early setup of the vmware hypervisor. Signed-off-by: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de>
2009-08-31x86: Add timer_init to x86_init_opsThomas Gleixner1-1/+1
The timer init code is convoluted with several quirks and the paravirt timer chooser. Figuring out which code path is actually taken is not for the faint hearted. Move the numaq TSC quirk to tsc_pre_init x86_init_ops function and replace the paravirt time chooser and the remaining x86 quirk with a simple x86_init_ops function.

2009-08-31x86: Move irq_init to x86_init_opsThomas Gleixner1-1/+1
irq_init is overridden by x86_quirks and by paravirts. Unify the whole mess and make it an unconditional x86_init_ops function which defaults to the standard function and can be overridden by the early platform code. Signed-off-by: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de>
