2006-07-30[PATCH] x86_64: Fix swiotlb=forceAndi Kleen1-0/+2
It was broken before. But having it is important as possible hardware bug workaround. And previously there was no way to force swiotlb if there is another IOMMU. Side effect is that iommu=force won't force swiotlb anymore even if there isn't another IOMMU. Signed-off-by: Andi Kleen <ak@suse.de> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2006-07-30[PATCH] x86_64: Calgary IOMMU - Multi-Node NULL pointer dereference fixJon Mason1-5/+0
Calgary hits a NULL pointer dereference when booting in a multi-chassis NUMA system. See Redhat bugzilla number 198498, found by Konrad Rzeszutek (konradr@redhat.com). There are many issues that had to be resolved to fix this problem. Firstly when I originally wrote the code to handle NUMA systems, I had a large misunderstanding that was not corrected until now. That was that I thought the "number of nodes online" referred to number of physical systems connected. So that if NUMA was disabled, there would only be 1 node and it would only show that node's PCI bus. In reality if NUMA is disabled, the system displays all of the connected chassis as one node but is only ignorant of the delays in accessing main memory. Therefore, references to num_online_nodes() and MAX_NUMNODES are incorrect and need to be set to the maximum number of nodes that can be accessed (which are 8). I created a variable, MAX_NUM_CHASSIS, and set it to 8 to fix this. Secondly, when walking the PCI in detect_calgary, the code only checked the first "slot" when looking to see if a device is present. This will work for most cases, but unfortunately it isn't always the case. In the NUMA MXE drawers, there are USB devices present on the 3rd slot (with slot 1 being empty). So, to work around this, all slots (up to 8) are scanned to see if there are any devices present. Lastly, the bus is being enumerated on large systems in a different way the we originally thought. This throws the ugly logic we had out the window. To more elegantly handle this, I reorganized the kva array to be sparse (which removed the need to have any bus number to kva slot logic in tce.c) and created a secondary space array to contain the bus number to phb mapping. With these changes Calgary boots on an x460 with 4 nodes with and without NUMA enabled.

2006-07-29[PATCH] pi-futex: robust-futex exitIngo Molnar1-1/+2
Fix robust PI-futexes to be properly unlocked on unexpected exit. For this to work the kernel has to know whether a futex is a PI or a non-PI one, because the semantics are different. Since the space in relevant glibc data structures is extremely scarce, the best solution is to encode the 'PI' information in bit 0 of the robust list pointer. Existing (non-PI) glibc robust futexes have this bit always zero, so the ABI is kept. New glibc with PI-robust-futexes will set this bit.

2006-07-29[PATCH] x86_64: Enlarge debug stack for nested kprobesbibo mao1-1/+1
In x86_64 platform, INT1 and INT3 trap stack is IST stack called DEBUG_STACK, when INT1/INT3 trap happens, system will switch to DEBUG_STACK by hardware. Current DEBUG_STACK size is 4K, when int1/int3 trap happens, kernel will minus current DEBUG_STACK IST value by 4k. But if int3/int1 trap is nested, it will destroy other vector's IST stack. This patch modifies this, it sets DEBUG_STACK size as 8K and allows two level of nested int1/int3 trap. Kprobe DEBUG_STACK may be nested, because kprobe handler may be probed by other kprobes. Thanks jbeulich for pointing out error in the first patch. [AK: nested kprobes are pretty dubious. Hopefully one nest will be enough. This will cost 8K per CPU (4K more than before)] Signed-off-by: bibo, mao <bibo.mao@intel.com> Signed-off-by: Andi Kleen <ak@suse.de> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>

2006-07-26[PATCH] Reorganize the cpufreq cpu hotplug locking to not be totally bizareArjan van de Ven1-3/+0
The patch below moves the cpu hotplugging higher up in the cpufreq layering; this is needed to avoid recursive taking of the cpu hotplug lock and to otherwise detangle the mess. The new rules are: 1. you must do lock_cpu_hotplug() around the following functions: __cpufreq_driver_target __cpufreq_governor (for CPUFREQ_GOV_LIMITS operation only) __cpufreq_set_policy 2. governer methods (.governer) must NOT take the lock_cpu_hotplug() lock in any way; they are called with the lock taken already 3. if your governer spawns a thread that does things, like calling __cpufreq_driver_target, your thread must honor rule #1. 4. the policy lock and other cpufreq internal locks nest within the lock_cpu_hotplug() lock. I'm not entirely happy about how the __cpufreq_governor rule ended up (conditional locking rule depending on the argument) but basically all callers pass this as a constant so it's not too horrible. The patch also removes the cpufreq_governor() function since during the locking audit it turned out to be entirely unused (so no need to fix it) The patch works on my testbox, but it could use more testing (otoh... it can't be much worse than the current code) Signed-off-by: Arjan van de Ven <arjan@linux.intel.com> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>

2006-07-23cpu hotplug: simplify and hopefully fix lockingLinus Torvalds1-6/+0
The CPU hotplug locking was quite messy, with a recursive lock to handle the fact that both the actual up/down sequence wanted to protect itself from being re-entered, but the callbacks that it called also tended to want to protect themselves from CPU events. This splits the lock into two (one to serialize the whole hotplug sequence, the other to protect against the CPU present bitmaps changing). The latter still allows recursive usage because some subsystems (ondemand policy for cpufreq at least) had already gotten too used to the lax locking, but the locking mistakes are hopefully now less fundamental, and we now warn about recursive lock usage when we see it, in the hope that it can be fixed.

2006-07-15[PATCH] per-task delay accounting taskstats interface: control exit data ↵Shailabh Nagar2-25/+6
through cpumasks On systems with a large number of cpus, with even a modest rate of tasks exiting per cpu, the volume of taskstats data sent on thread exit can overflow a userspace listener's buffers. One approach to avoiding overflow is to allow listeners to get data for a limited and specific set of cpus. By scaling the number of listeners and/or the cpus they monitor, userspace can handle the statistical data overload more gracefully. In this patch, each listener registers to listen to a specific set of cpus by specifying a cpumask. The interest is recorded per-cpu. When a task exits on a cpu, its taskstats data is unicast to each listener interested in that cpu. Thanks to Andrew Morton for pointing out the various scalability and general concerns of previous attempts and for suggesting this design.

Don't send taskstats (per-pid or per-tgid) on thread exit when no one is listening for such data. Currently the taskstats interface allocates a structure, fills it in and calls netlink to send out per-pid and per-tgid stats regardless of whether a userspace listener for the data exists (netlink layer would check for that and avoid the multicast). As a result of this patch, the check for the no-listener case is performed early, avoiding the redundant allocation and filling up of the taskstats structures.

2006-07-15[PATCH] delay accounting taskstats interface send tgid onceShailabh Nagar2-16/+59
Send per-tgid data only once during exit of a thread group instead of once with each member thread exit. Currently, when a thread exits, besides its per-tid data, the per-tgid data of its thread group is also sent out, if its thread group is non-empty. The per-tgid data sent consists of the sum of per-tid stats for all *remaining* threads of the thread group. This patch modifies this sending in two ways: - the per-tgid data is sent only when the last thread of a thread group exits. This cuts down heavily on the overhead of sending/receiving per-tgid data, especially when other exploiters of the taskstats interface aren't interested in per-tgid stats - the semantics of the per-tgid data sent are changed. Instead of being the sum of per-tid data for remaining threads, the value now sent is the true total accumalated statistics for all threads that are/were part of the thread group. The patch also addresses a minor issue where failure of one accounting subsystem to fill in the taskstats structure was causing the send of taskstats to not be sent at all. The patch has been tested for stability and run cerberus for over 4 hours on an SMP.

Create a "taskstats" interface based on generic netlink (NETLINK_GENERIC family), for getting statistics of tasks and thread groups during their lifetime and when they exit. The interface is intended for use by multiple accounting packages though it is being created in the context of delay accounting. This patch creates the interface without populating the fields of the data that is sent to the user in response to a command or upon the exit of a task. Each accounting package interested in using taskstats has to provide an additional patch to add its stats to the common structure.

2006-07-15[PATCH] per-task-delay-accounting: cpu delay collection via schedstatsChandra Seetharaman1-3/+17
Make the task-related schedstats functions callable by delay accounting even if schedstats collection isn't turned on. This removes the dependency of delay accounting on schedstats.

2006-07-15[PATCH] per-task-delay-accounting: sync block I/O and swapin delay collectionShailabh Nagar2-0/+38
Unlike earlier iterations of the delay accounting patches, now delays are only collected for the actual I/O waits rather than try and cover the delays seen in I/O submission paths. Account separately for block I/O delays incurred as a result of swapin page faults whose frequency can be affected by the task/process' rss limit. Hence swapin delays can act as feedback for rss limit changes independent of I/O priority changes.

2006-07-15[PATCH] per-task-delay-accounting: setupShailabh Nagar3-0/+101
Initialization code related to collection of per-task "delay" statistics which measure how long it had to wait for cpu, sync block io, swapping etc. The collection of statistics and the interface are in other patches. This patch sets up the data structures and allows the statistics collection to be disabled through a kernel boot parameter.

enough drops gpio_set_high, gpio_set_low from the nsc_gpio_ops vtable. While we can't drop them from scx200_gpio (or can we?), we dont need them for new users of the exported vtable; gpio_set(1), gpio_set(0) work fine.
