2013-12-03kobject: fix kset sample error pathBjorn Helgaas1-0/+1
Previously, example_init() leaked a kset if any of the object creations failed. This fixes the leak by calling kset_unregister() in the error path. Signed-off-by: Bjorn Helgaas <bhelgaas@google.com> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org>
2013-11-15kfifo API type safetyStefani Seibold3-5/+5
This patch enhances the type safety for the kfifo API. It is now safe to put const data into a non const FIFO and the API will now generate a compiler warning when reading from the fifo where the destination address is pointing to a const variable. As a side effect the kfifo_put() does now expect the value of an element instead a pointer to the element. This was suggested Russell King. It make the handling of the kfifo_put easier since there is no need to create a helper variable for getting the address of a pointer or to pass integers of different sizes. IMHO the API break is okay, since there are currently only six users of kfifo_put(). The code is also cleaner by kicking out the "if (0)" expressions.

This extends the uhid example client. It properly documents the built-in report-descriptor an adds explicit report-numbers. Furthermore, LED output reports are added to utilize the new UHID output reports of the kernel. Support for 3 basic LEDs is added and a small report-parser to print debug messages if output reports were received. To test this, simply write the EV_LED+LED_CAPSL+1 event to the evdev device-node of the uhid-device and the kernel will forward it to your uhid client.

Main tooling side changes: - Add 'event group view', from Namyung Kim: To use it, 'perf record' should group events when recording. And then perf report parses the saved group relation from file header and prints them together if --group option is provided.

You can use --group option to enable event group view: $ perf report --group ... # group: {ref-cycles,cycles} # ======== # Samples: 7K of event 'anon group { ref-cycles, cycles }' # Event count (approx.): 6876107743 # # Overhead Command Shared Object Symbol # ................ ....... ................. .......................... 99.84% 99.76% noploop noploop [.] main 0.07% 0.00% noploop ld-2.15.so [.] strcmp 0.03% 0.00% noploop [kernel.kallsyms] [k] timerqueue_del 0.03% 0.03% noploop [kernel.kallsyms] [k] sched_clock_cpu 0.02% 0.00% noploop [kernel.kallsyms] [k] account_user_time 0.01% 0.00% noploop [kernel.kallsyms] [k] __alloc_pages_nodemask 0.00% 0.00% noploop [kernel.kallsyms] [k] native_write_msr_safe 0.00% 0.11% noploop [kernel.kallsyms] [k] _raw_spin_lock 0.00% 0.06% noploop [kernel.kallsyms] [k] find_get_page 0.00% 0.02% noploop [kernel.kallsyms] [k] rcu_check_callbacks 0.00% 0.02% noploop [kernel.kallsyms] [k] __current_kernel_time As you can see the Overhead column now contains both of ref-cycles and cycles and header line shows group information also - 'anon group { ref-cycles, cycles }'.

2013-02-05samples/seccomp: be less stupid about cross compilingArnd Bergmann1-0/+2
The seccomp filters are currently built for the build host, not for the machine that they are going to run on, but they are also built for with the -m32 flag if the kernel is built for a 32 bit machine, both of which seems rather odd. It broke allyesconfig on my machine, which is x86-64, but building for 32 bit ARM, with this error message: In file included from /usr/include/stdio.h:28:0, from samples/seccomp/bpf-fancy.c:15: /usr/include/features.h:324:26: fatal error: bits/predefs.h: No such file or directory because there are no 32 bit libc headers installed on this machine. We should really be building all the samples for the target machine rather than the build host, but since the infrastructure for that appears to be missing right now, let's be a little bit smarter and not pass the '-m32' flag to the HOSTCC when cross- compiling.

2013-01-25tracing: Remove tracepoint sample codeSteven Rostedt7-182/+1
The tracepoint sample code was used to teach developers how to create their own tracepoints. But now the trace_events have been added as a higher level that is used directly by developers today. Only the trace_event code should use the tracepoint interface directly and no new tracepoints should be added. Besides, the example had a race condition with the use of the ->d_name.name dentry field, as pointed out by Al Viro. Best just to remove the code so it wont be used by other developers.

Add an rpmsg driver sample, which demonstrates how to communicate with an AMP-configured remote processor over the rpmsg bus. Note how once probed, the driver can immediately start sending messages using the rpmsg_send() API, without having to worry about creating endpoints or allocating rpmsg addresses: all that work is done by the rpmsg bus, and the required information is already embedded in the rpmsg channel that the driver is probed with.

This is ugly and doesn't scale if a single callback services many perf_events.

2011-07-01perf: Remove the nmi parameter from the swevent and overflow interfacePeter Zijlstra1-1/+1
The nmi parameter indicated if we could do wakeups from the current context, if not, we would set some state and self-IPI and let the resulting interrupt do the wakeup. For the various event classes: - hardware: nmi=0; PMI is in fact an NMI or we run irq_work_run from the PMI-tail (ARM etc.) - tracepoint: nmi=0; since tracepoint could be from NMI context. - software: nmi=[0,1]; some, like the schedule thing cannot perform wakeups, and hence need 0. As one can see, there is very little nmi=1 usage, and the down-side of not using it is that on some platforms some software events can have a jiffy delay in wakeup (when arch_irq_work_raise isn't implemented). The up-side however is that we can remove the nmi parameter and save a bunch of conditionals in fast paths.

2010-10-15llseek: automatically add .llseek fopArnd Bergmann4-0/+4
All file_operations should get a .llseek operation so we can make nonseekable_open the default for future file operations without a .llseek pointer. The three cases that we can automatically detect are no_llseek, seq_lseek and default_llseek. For cases where we can we can automatically prove that the file offset is always ignored, we use noop_llseek, which maintains the current behavior of not returning an error from a seek. New drivers should normally not use noop_llseek but instead use no_llseek and call nonseekable_open at open time. Existing drivers can be converted to do the same when the maintainer knows for certain that no user code relies on calling seek on the device file. The generated code is often incorrectly indented and right now contains comments that clarify for each added line why a specific variant was chosen. In the version that gets submitted upstream, the comments will be gone and I will manually fix the indentation, because there does not seem to be a way to do that using coccinelle. Some amount of new code is currently sitting in linux-next that should get the same modifications, which I will do at the end of the merge window. Many thanks to Julia Lawall for helping me learn to write a semantic patch that does all this. ===== begin semantic patch ===== // This adds an llseek= method to all file operations, // as a preparation for making no_llseek the default. // // The rules are // - use no_llseek explicitly if we do nonseekable_open // - use seq_lseek for sequential files // - use default_llseek if we know we access f_pos // - use noop_llseek if we know we don't access f_pos, // but we still want to allow users to call lseek // @ open1 exists @ identifier nested_open; @@ nested_open(...) { <+... nonseekable_open(...) ...+> } @ open exists@ identifier open_f; identifier i, f; identifier open1.nested_open; @@ int open_f(struct inode *i, struct file *f) { <+...

2010-10-01kfifo: fix scatterlist usageIra W. Snyder1-8/+9
The kfifo_dma family of functions use sg_mark_end() on the last element in their scatterlist. This forces use of a fresh scatterlist for each DMA operation, which makes recycling a single scatterlist impossible. Change the behavior of the kfifo_dma functions to match the usage of the dma_map_sg function. This means that users must respect the returned nents value. The sample code is updated to reflect the change. This bug is trivial to cause: call kfifo_dma_in_prepare() such that it prepares a scatterlist with a single entry comprising the whole fifo. This is the case when you map the entirety of a newly created empty fifo. This causes the setup_sgl() function to mark the first scatterlist entry as the end of the chain, no matter what comes after it. Afterwards, add and remove some data from the fifo such that another call to kfifo_dma_in_prepare() will create two scatterlist entries. It returns nents=2. However, due to the previous sg_mark_end() call, sg_is_last() will now return true for the first scatterlist element. This causes the sample code to print a single scatterlist element when it should print two. By removing the call to sg_mark_end(), we make the API as similar as possible to the DMA mapping API. All users are required to respect the returned nents. Signed-off-by: Ira W.

2010-05-14tracing: Let tracepoints have data passed to tracepoint callbacksSteven Rostedt3-12/+12
This patch adds data to be passed to tracepoint callbacks. The created functions from DECLARE_TRACE() now need a mandatory data parameter. For example: DECLARE_TRACE(mytracepoint, int value, value) Will create the register function: int register_trace_mytracepoint((void(*)(void *data, int value))probe, void *data); As the first argument, all callbacks (probes) must take a (void *data) parameter. So a callback for the above tracepoint will look like: void myprobe(void *data, int value) { } The callback may choose to ignore the data parameter. This change allows callbacks to register a private data pointer along with the function probe. void mycallback(void *data, int value); register_trace_mytracepoint(mycallback, mydata); Then the mycallback() will receive the "mydata" as the first parameter before the args. A more detailed example: DECLARE_TRACE(mytracepoint, TP_PROTO(int status), TP_ARGS(status)); /* In the C file */ DEFINE_TRACE(mytracepoint, TP_PROTO(int status), TP_ARGS(status)); [...] trace_mytracepoint(status); /* In a file registering this tracepoint */ int my_callback(void *data, int status) { struct my_struct my_data = data; [...] } [...] my_data = kmalloc(sizeof(*my_data), GFP_KERNEL); init_my_data(my_data); register_trace_mytracepoint(my_callback, my_data); The same callback can also be registered to the same tracepoint as long as the data registered is different. Note, the data must also be used to unregister the callback: unregister_trace_mytracepoint(my_callback, my_data); Because of the data parameter, tracepoints declared this way can not have no args. That is: DECLARE_TRACE(mytracepoint, TP_PROTO(void), TP_ARGS()); will cause an error. If no arguments are needed, a new macro can be used instead: DECLARE_TRACE_NOARGS(mytracepoint); Since there are no arguments, the proto and args fields are left out. This is part of a series to make the tracepoint footprint smaller: text data bss dec hex filename 4913961 1088356 861512 6863829 68bbd5 vmlinux.orig 4914025 1088868 861512 6864405 68be15 vmlinux.class 4918492 1084612 861512 6864616 68bee8 vmlinux.tracepoint Again, this patch also increases the size of the kernel, but lays the ground work for decreasing it. v5: Fixed net/core/drop_monitor.c to handle these updates. v4: Moved the DECLARE_TRACE() DECLARE_TRACE_NOARGS out of the #ifdef CONFIG_TRACE_POINTS, since the two are the same in both cases. The __DECLARE_TRACE() is what changes. Thanks to Frederic Weisbecker for pointing this out. v3: Made all register_* functions require data to be passed and all callbacks to take a void * parameter as its first argument. This makes the calling functions comply with C standards. Also added more comments to the modifications of DECLARE_TRACE(). v2: Made the DECLARE_TRACE() have the ability to pass arguments and added a new DECLARE_TRACE_NOARGS() for tracepoints that do not need any arguments.

2010-03-30include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking ↵Tejun Heo1-0/+1
implicit slab.h inclusion from percpu.h percpu.h is included by sched.h and module.h and thus ends up being included when building most .c files. percpu.h includes slab.h which in turn includes gfp.h making everything defined by the two files universally available and complicating inclusion dependencies. percpu.h -> slab.h dependency is about to be removed. Prepare for this change by updating users of gfp and slab facilities include those headers directly instead of assuming availability. As this conversion needs to touch large number of source files, the following script is used as the basis of conversion. http://userweb.kernel.org/~tj/misc/slabh-sweep.py The script does the followings. * Scan files for gfp and slab usages and update includes such that only the necessary includes are there. ie. if only gfp is used, gfp.h, if slab is used, slab.h. * When the script inserts a new include, it looks at the include blocks and try to put the new include such that its order conforms to its surrounding. It's put in the include block which contains core kernel includes, in the same order that the rest are ordered - alphabetical, Christmas tree, rev-Xmas-tree or at the end if there doesn't seem to be any matching order. * If the script can't find a place to put a new include (mostly because the file doesn't have fitting include block), it prints out an error message indicating which .h file needs to be added to the file. The conversion was done in the following steps. 1. The initial automatic conversion of all .c files updated slightly over 4000 files, deleting around 700 includes and adding ~480 gfp.h and ~3000 slab.h inclusions. The script emitted errors for ~400 files. 2. Each error was manually checked. Some didn't need the inclusion, some needed manual addition while adding it to implementation .h or embedding .c file was more appropriate for others. This step added inclusions to around 150 files. 3. The script was run again and the output was compared to the edits from #2 to make sure no file was left behind. 4. Several build tests were done and a couple of problems were fixed. e.g. lib/decompress_*.c used malloc/free() wrappers around slab APIs requiring slab.h to be added manually. 5. The script was run on all .h files but without automatically editing them as sprinkling gfp.h and slab.h inclusions around .h files could easily lead to inclusion dependency hell. Most gfp.h inclusion directives were ignored as stuff from gfp.h was usually wildly available and often used in preprocessor macros. Each slab.h inclusion directive was examined and added manually as necessary. 6. percpu.h was updated not to include slab.h. 7. Build test were done on the following configurations and failures were fixed. CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL was turned off for all tests (as my distributed build env didn't work with gcov compiles) and a few more options had to be turned off depending on archs to make things build (like ipr on powerpc/64 which failed due to missing writeq). * x86 and x86_64 UP and SMP allmodconfig and a custom test config. * powerpc and powerpc64 SMP allmodconfig * sparc and sparc64 SMP allmodconfig * ia64 SMP allmodconfig * s390 SMP allmodconfig * alpha SMP allmodconfig * um on x86_64 SMP allmodconfig 8. percpu.h modifications were reverted so that it could be applied as a separate patch and serve as bisection point. Given the fact that I had only a couple of failures from tests on step 6, I'm fairly confident about the coverage of this conversion patch. If there is a breakage, it's likely to be something in one of the arch headers which should be easily discoverable easily on most builds of the specific arch.

In kernel/hw_breakpoint.c, per_cpu(nr_task_bp_pinned, cpu)'s will trigger spurious noderef related warnings from sparse.

struct perf_event::event callback was called when a breakpoint triggers. But this is a rather opaque callback, pretty tied-only to the breakpoint API and not really integrated into perf as it triggers even when we don't overflow. We prefer to use overflow_handler() as it fits into the perf events rules, being called only when we overflow.
