git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/rafael/linux-pm Pull ACPI and power management updates from Rafael Wysocki: "As far as the number of commits goes, the top spot belongs to ACPI this time with cpufreq in the second position and a handful of PM core, PNP and cpuidle updates. They are fixes and cleanups mostly, as usual, with a couple of new features in the mix. The most visible change is probably that we will create struct acpi_device objects (visible in sysfs) for all devices represented in the ACPI tables regardless of their status and there will be a new sysfs attribute under those objects allowing user space to check that status via _STA. Consequently, ACPI device eject or generally hot-removal will not delete those objects, unless the table containing the corresponding namespace nodes is unloaded, which is extremely rare. Also ACPI container hotplug will be handled quite a bit differently and cpufreq will support CPU boost ("turbo") generically and not only in the acpi-cpufreq driver. Specifics: - ACPI core changes to make it create a struct acpi_device object for every device represented in the ACPI tables during all namespace scans regardless of the current status of that device. In accordance with this, ACPI hotplug operations will not delete those objects, unless the underlying ACPI tables go away. - On top of the above, new sysfs attribute for ACPI device objects allowing user space to check device status by triggering the execution of _STA for its ACPI object. From Srinivas Pandruvada. - ACPI core hotplug changes reducing code duplication, integrating the PCI root hotplug with the core and reworking container hotplug. - ACPI core simplifications making it use ACPI_COMPANION() in the code "glueing" ACPI device objects to "physical" devices. - ACPICA update to upstream version 20131218. This adds support for the DBG2 and PCCT tables to ACPICA, fixes some bugs and improves debug facilities. From Bob Moore, Lv Zheng and Betty Dall. - Init code change to carry out the early ACPI initialization earlier. That should allow us to use ACPI during the timekeeping initialization and possibly to simplify the EFI initialization too. From Chun-Yi Lee. - Clenups of the inclusions of ACPI headers in many places all over from Lv Zheng and Rashika Kheria (work in progress). - New helper for ACPI _DSM execution and rework of the code in drivers that uses _DSM to execute it via the new helper.

2014-01-23kdump: fix exported size of vmcoreinfo noteVivek Goyal1-1/+1
Right now we seem to be exporting the max data size contained inside vmcoreinfo note. But this does not include the size of meta data around vmcore info data. Like name of the note and starting and ending elf_note. I think user space expects total size and that size is put in PT_NOTE elf header. Things seem to be fine so far because we are not using vmcoreinfo note to the maximum capacity. But as it starts filling up, to capacity, at some point of time, problem will be visible. I don't think user space will be broken with this change. So there is no need to introduce vmcoreinfo2. This change is safe and backward compatible. More explanation on why this change is safe is below. vmcoreinfo contains information about kernel which user space needs to know to do things like filtering. For example, various kernel config options or information about size or offset of some data structures etc. All this information is commmunicated to user space with an ELF note present in ELF /proc/vmcore file. Currently vmcoreinfo data size is 4096. With some elf note meta data around it, actual size is 4132 bytes. But we are using barely 25% of that size. Rest is empty. So even if we tell user space that size of ELf note is 4096 and not 4132, nothing will be broken becase after around 1000 bytes, everything is zero anyway. But once we start filling up the note to the capacity, and not report the full size of note, bad things will start happening. Either some data will be lost or tools will be confused that they did not fine the zero note at the end. So I think this change is safe and should not break existing tools.

2014-01-23kexec: add sysctl to disable kexec_loadKees Cook2-1/+15
For general-purpose (i.e. distro) kernel builds it makes sense to build with CONFIG_KEXEC to allow end users to choose what kind of things they want to do with kexec. However, in the face of trying to lock down a system with such a kernel, there needs to be a way to disable kexec_load (much like module loading can be disabled). Without this, it is too easy for the root user to modify kernel memory even when CONFIG_STRICT_DEVMEM and modules_disabled are set. With this change, it is still possible to load an image for use later, then disable kexec_load so the image (or lack of image) can't be altered. The intention is for using this in environments where "perfect" enforcement is hard. Without a verified boot, along with verified modules, and along with verified kexec, this is trying to give a system a better chance to defend itself (or at least grow the window of discoverability) against attack in the face of a privilege escalation. In my mind, I consider several boot scenarios: 1) Verified boot of read-only verified root fs loading fd-based verification of kexec images. 2) Secure boot of writable root fs loading signed kexec images. 3) Regular boot loading kexec (e.g. kcrash) image early and locking it. 4) Regular boot with no control of kexec image at all. 1 and 2 don't exist yet, but will soon once the verified kexec series has landed. 4 is the state of things now. The gap between 2 and 4 is too large, so this change creates scenario 3, a middle-ground above 4 when 2 and 1 are not possible for a system.

2014-01-23sched/clock: Fixup early initializationPeter Zijlstra1-12/+41
The code would assume sched_clock_stable() and switch to !stable later, this switch brings a discontinuity in time. The discontinuity on switching from stable to unstable was always present, but previously we would set stable/unstable before initializing TSC and usually stick to the one we start out with. So the static_key bits brought an extra switch where there previously wasn't one. Things are further complicated by the fact that we cannot use static_key as early as we usually call set_sched_clock_stable(). Fix things by tracking the stable state in a regular variable and only set the static_key to the right state on sched_clock_init(), which is ran right after late_time_init->tsc_init(). Before this we would not be using the TSC anyway.

2014-01-23Revert "sched: Fix sleep time double accounting in enqueue entity"Vincent Guittot1-7/+1
This reverts commit 282cf499f03ec1754b6c8c945c9674b02631fb0f. With the current implementation, the load average statistics of a sched entity change according to other activity on the CPU even if this activity is done between the running window of the sched entity and have no influence on the running duration of the task. When a task wakes up on the same CPU, we currently update last_runnable_update with the return of __synchronize_entity_decay without updating the runnable_avg_sum and runnable_avg_period accordingly. In fact, we have to sync the load_contrib of the se with the rq's blocked_load_contrib before removing it from the latter (with __synchronize_entity_decay) but we must keep last_runnable_update unchanged for updating runnable_avg_sum/period during the next update_entity_load_avg.

This patch adds three tracepoints o trace_sched_move_numa when a task is moved to a node o trace_sched_swap_numa when a task is swapped with another task o trace_sched_stick_numa when a numa-related migration fails The tracepoints allow the NUMA scheduler activity to be monitored and the following high-level metrics can be calculated o NUMA migrated stuck nr trace_sched_stick_numa o NUMA migrated idle nr trace_sched_move_numa o NUMA migrated swapped nr trace_sched_swap_numa o NUMA local swapped trace_sched_swap_numa src_nid == dst_nid (should never happen) o NUMA remote swapped trace_sched_swap_numa src_nid != dst_nid (should == NUMA migrated swapped) o NUMA group swapped trace_sched_swap_numa src_ngid == dst_ngid Maybe a small number of these are acceptable but a high number would be a major surprise. It would be even worse if bounces are frequent. o NUMA avg task migs. Average number of migrations for tasks o NUMA stddev task mig Self-explanatory o NUMA max task migs. Maximum number of migrations for a single task In general the intent of the tracepoints is to help diagnose problems where automatic NUMA balancing appears to be doing an excessive amount of useless work.

2014-01-21introduce for_each_thread() to replace the buggy while_each_thread()Oleg Nesterov2-0/+8
while_each_thread() and next_thread() should die, almost every lockless usage is wrong. 1. Unless g == current, the lockless while_each_thread() is not safe. while_each_thread(g, t) can loop forever if g exits, next_thread() can't reach the unhashed thread in this case. Note that this can happen even if g is the group leader, it can exec. 2. Even if while_each_thread() itself was correct, people often use it wrongly. It was never safe to just take rcu_read_lock() and loop unless you verify that pid_alive(g) == T, even the first next_thread() can point to the already freed/reused memory. This patch adds signal_struct->thread_head and task->thread_node to create the normal rcu-safe list with the stable head. The new for_each_thread(g, t) helper is always safe under rcu_read_lock() as long as this task_struct can't go away. Note: of course it is ugly to have both task_struct->thread_node and the old task_struct->thread_group, we will kill it later, after we change the users of while_each_thread() to use for_each_thread(). Perhaps we can kill it even before we convert all users, we can reimplement next_thread(t) using the new thread_head/thread_node. But we can't do this right now because this will lead to subtle behavioural changes. For example, do/while_each_thread() always sees at least one task, while for_each_thread() can do nothing if the whole thread group has died. Or thread_group_empty(), currently its semantics is not clear unless thread_group_leader(p) and we need to audit the callers before we can change it. So this patch adds the new interface which has to coexist with the old one for some time, hopefully the next changes will be more or less straightforward and the old one will go away soon.

2014-01-21mm: add overcommit_kbytes sysctl variableJerome Marchand1-3/+8
Some applications that run on HPC clusters are designed around the availability of RAM and the overcommit ratio is fine tuned to get the maximum usage of memory without swapping. With growing memory, the 1%-of-all-RAM grain provided by overcommit_ratio has become too coarse for these workload (on a 2TB machine it represents no less than 20GB). This patch adds the new overcommit_kbytes sysctl variable that allow a much finer grain.

2014-01-21fsnotify: do not share events between notification groupsJan Kara2-10/+12
Currently fsnotify framework creates one event structure for each notification event and links this event into all interested notification groups. This is done so that we save memory when several notification groups are interested in the event. However the need for event structure shared between inotify & fanotify bloats the event structure so the result is often higher memory consumption. Another problem is that fsnotify framework keeps path references with outstanding events so that fanotify can return open file descriptors with its events. This has the undesirable effect that filesystem cannot be unmounted while there are outstanding events - a regression for inotify compared to a situation before it was converted to fsnotify framework. For fanotify this problem is hard to avoid and users of fanotify should kind of expect this behavior when they ask for file descriptors from notified files. This patch changes fsnotify and its users to create separate event structure for each group. This allows for much simpler code (~400 lines removed by this patch) and also smaller event structures. For example on 64-bit system original struct fsnotify_event consumes 120 bytes, plus additional space for file name, additional 24 bytes for second and each subsequent group linking the event, and additional 32 bytes for each inotify group for private data. After the conversion inotify event consumes 48 bytes plus space for file name which is considerably less memory unless file names are long and there are several groups interested in the events (both of which are uncommon). Fanotify event fits in 56 bytes after the conversion (fanotify doesn't care about file names so its events don't have to have it allocated). A win unless there are four or more fanotify groups interested in the event. The conversion also solves the problem with unmount when only inotify is used as we don't have to grab path references for inotify events.

In kernel/trace/trace.c we have this: static void tracing_pipe_buf_release(struct pipe_inode_info *pipe, struct pipe_buffer *buf) { __free_page(buf->page); } static const struct pipe_buf_operations tracing_pipe_buf_ops = { .can_merge = 0, .map = generic_pipe_buf_map, .unmap = generic_pipe_buf_unmap, .confirm = generic_pipe_buf_confirm, .release = tracing_pipe_buf_release, .steal = generic_pipe_buf_steal, .get = generic_pipe_buf_get, }; with void generic_pipe_buf_get(struct pipe_inode_info *pipe, struct pipe_buffer *buf) { page_cache_get(buf->page); } and I don't see anything that would've prevented tee(2) called on the pipe that got stuff spliced into it from that sucker. ->ops->get() will be called, then buf gets copied into target pipe's ->bufs[] and eventually readers get to both copies of the buffer. With get_page(page) look at that page __free_page(page) look at that page __free_page(page) which is not a good thing, to put it mildly. AFAICS, that ought to use the normal generic_pipe_buf_release() (aka page_cache_release(buf->page)), shouldn't it? [ SDR - As trace_pipe just allocates the page with alloc_page(GFP_KERNEL), and doesn't do anything special with it (no LRU logic). The __free_page() should be fine, as it wont actually free a page with reference count. Maybe there's a chance to leak memory? Anyway, This change is at a minimum good for being symmetric with generic_pipe_buf_get, it is fine to add. ] Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk> [ SDR - Removed no longer used tracing_pipe_buf_release ] Signed-off-by: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org>

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/ebiederm/user-namespace Pull namespace fixes from Eric Biederman: "This is a set of 3 regression fixes. This fixes /proc/mounts when using "ip netns add <netns>" to display the actual mount point. This fixes a regression in clone that broke lxc-attach. This fixes a regression in the permission checks for mounting /proc that made proc unmountable if binfmt_misc was in use. Oops. My apologies for sending this pull request so late. Al Viro gave interesting review comments about the d_path fix that I wanted to address in detail before I sent this pull request. Unfortunately a bad round of colds kept from addressing that in detail until today. The executive summary of the review was: Al: Is patching d_path really sufficient? The prepend_path, d_path, d_absolute_path, and __d_path family of functions is a really mess. Me: Yes, patching d_path is really sufficient. Yes, the code is mess. No it is not appropriate to rewrite all of d_path for a regression that has existed for entirely too long already, when a two line change will do" * 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/ebiederm/user-namespace: vfs: Fix a regression in mounting proc fork: Allow CLONE_PARENT after setns(CLONE_NEWPID) vfs: In d_path don't call d_dname on a mount point

2014-01-16sched: Fix __sched_setscheduler() nice testPeter Zijlstra1-1/+2
With the introduction of sched_attr::sched_nice we need to check if we've got permission to actually change the nice value. Daniel found that can_nice() would always fail; and upon inspection it turns out that can_nice() only tests to see if we can lower the nice value, but it doesn't validate if we're lowering or not. Therefore amend the test to only call can_nice() when we lower the nice value.

2014-01-16futexes: Fix futex_hashsize initializationHeiko Carstens1-2/+4
"futexes: Increase hash table size for better performance" introduces a new alloc_large_system_hash() call. alloc_large_system_hash() however may allocate less memory than requested, e.g. limited by MAX_ORDER. Hence pass a pointer to alloc_large_system_hash() which will contain the hash shift when the function returns. Afterwards correctly set futex_hashsize. Fixes a crash on s390 where the requested allocation size was 4MB but only 1MB was allocated.

Secondly, getparam() (and getattr()) would still report !0 sched_priority for !FIFO/RR tasks after having been such. So unconditionally set p->rt_priority.
