2013-05-24MPILIB: disable usage of floating point registers on pariscHelge Deller1-2/+3
The umul_ppmm() macro for parisc uses the xmpyu assembler statement which does calculation via a floating point register. But usage of floating point registers inside the Linux kernel are not allowed and gcc will stop compilation due to the -mdisable-fpregs compiler option. Fix this by disabling the umul_ppmm() and udiv_qrnnd() macros. The mpilib will then use the generic built-in implementations instead. Signed-off-by: Helge Deller <deller@gmx.de>

2013-05-21klist: del waiter from klist_remove_waiters before wakeup waitting processwang, biao1-1/+1
There is a race between klist_remove and klist_release. klist_remove uses a local var waiter saved on stack. When klist_release calls wake_up_process(waiter->process) to wake up the waiter, waiter might run immediately and reuse the stack. Then, klist_release calls list_del(&waiter->list) to change previous wait data and cause prior waiter thread corrupt. The patch fixes it against kernel 3.9.

2013-05-07rwsem: check counter to avoid cmpxchg callsDavidlohr Bueso1-1/+3
This patch tries to reduce the amount of cmpxchg calls in the writer failed path by checking the counter value first before issuing the instruction. If ->count is not set to RWSEM_WAITING_BIAS then there is no point wasting a cmpxchg call. Furthermore, Michel states "I suppose it helps due to the case where someone else steals the lock while we're trying to acquire sem->wait_lock." Two very different workloads and machines were used to see how this patch improves throughput: pgbench on a quad-core laptop and aim7 on a large 8 socket box with 80 cores.

2013-05-07rwsem: implement support for write lock stealing on the fastpathMichel Lespinasse1-32/+32
When we decide to wake up readers, we must first grant them as many read locks as necessary, and then actually wake up all these readers. But in order to know how many read shares to grant, we must first count the readers at the head of the queue. This might take a while if there are many readers, and we want to be protected against a writer stealing the lock while we're counting. To that end, we grant the first reader lock before counting how many more readers are queued. We also require some adjustments to the wake_type semantics. RWSEM_WAKE_NO_ACTIVE used to mean that we had found the count to be RWSEM_WAITING_BIAS, in which case the rwsem was known to be free as nobody could steal it while we hold the wait_lock. This doesn't make sense once we implement fastpath write lock stealing, so we now use RWSEM_WAKE_ANY in that case. Similarly, when rwsem_down_write_failed found that a read lock was active, it would use RWSEM_WAKE_READ_OWNED which signalled that new readers could be woken without checking first that the rwsem was available. We can't do that anymore since the existing readers might release their read locks, and a writer could steal the lock before we wake up additional readers. So, we have to use a new RWSEM_WAKE_READERS value to indicate we only want to wake readers, but we don't currently hold any read lock.

2013-05-07rwsem: more agressive lock stealing in rwsem_down_write_failedMichel Lespinasse1-21/+8
Some small code simplifications can be achieved by doing more agressive lock stealing: - When rwsem_down_write_failed() notices that there are no active locks (and thus no thread to wake us if we decided to sleep), it used to wake the first queued process. However, stealing the lock is also sufficient to deal with this case, so we don't need this check anymore. - In try_get_writer_sem(), we can steal the lock even when the first waiter is a reader. This is correct because the code path that wakes readers is protected by the wait_lock. As to the performance effects of this change, they are expected to be minimal: readers are still granted the lock (rather than having to acquire it themselves) when they reach the front of the wait queue, so we have essentially the same behavior as in rwsem-spinlock.

2013-05-07rwsem: simplify rwsem_down_write_failedMichel Lespinasse1-24/+9
When waking writers, we never grant them the lock - instead, they have to acquire it themselves when they run, and remove themselves from the wait_list when they succeed. As a result, we can do a few simplifications in rwsem_down_write_failed(): - We don't need to check for !waiter.task since __rwsem_do_wake() doesn't remove writers from the wait_list - There is no point releaseing the wait_lock before entering the wait loop, as we will need to reacquire it immediately. We can change the loop so that the lock is always held at the start of each loop iteration. - We don't need to get a reference on the task structure, since the task is responsible for removing itself from the wait_list. There is no risk, like in the rwsem_down_read_failed() case, that a task would wake up and exit (thus destroying its task structure) while __rwsem_do_wake() is still running - wait_lock protects against that.

The help text for this config is duplicated across the x86, parisc, and s390 Kconfig.debug files. Arnd Bergman noted that the help text was slightly misleading and should be fixed to state that enabling this option isn't a problem when using pre 4.4 gcc. To simplify the rewording, consolidate the text into lib/Kconfig.debug and modify it there to be more explicit about when you should say N to this config. Also, make the text a bit more generic by stating that this option enables compile time checks so we can cover architectures which emit warnings vs. ones which emit errors. The details of how an architecture decided to implement the checks isn't as important as the concept of compile time checking of copy_from_user() calls. While we're doing this, remove all the copy_from_user_overflow() code that's duplicated many times and place it into lib/ so that any architecture supporting this option can get the function for free.

2013-04-30dump_stack: consolidate dump_stack() implementations and unify their behaviorsTejun Heo1-3/+8
Both dump_stack() and show_stack() are currently implemented by each architecture. show_stack(NULL, NULL) dumps the backtrace for the current task as does dump_stack(). On some archs, dump_stack() prints extra information - pid, utsname and so on - in addition to the backtrace while the two are identical on other archs. The usages in arch-independent code of the two functions indicate show_stack(NULL, NULL) should print out bare backtrace while dump_stack() is used for debugging purposes when something went wrong, so it does make sense to print additional information on the task which triggered dump_stack(). There's no reason to require archs to implement two separate but mostly identical functions. It leads to unnecessary subtle information. This patch expands the dummy fallback dump_stack() implementation in lib/dump_stack.c such that it prints out debug information (taken from x86) and invokes show_stack(NULL, NULL) and drops arch-specific dump_stack() implementations in all archs except blackfin. Blackfin's dump_stack() does something wonky that I don't understand. Debug information can be printed separately by calling dump_stack_print_info() so that arch-specific dump_stack() implementation can still emit the same debug information. This is used in blackfin. This patch brings the following behavior changes. * On some archs, an extra level in backtrace for show_stack() could be printed. This is because the top frame was determined in dump_stack() on those archs while generic dump_stack() can't do that reliably. It can be compensated by inlining dump_stack() but not sure whether that'd be necessary. * Most archs didn't use to print debug info on dump_stack(). They do now. An example WARN dump follows. WARNING: at kernel/workqueue.c:4841 init_workqueues+0x35/0x505() Hardware name: empty Modules linked in: CPU: 0 PID: 1 Comm: swapper/0 Not tainted 3.9.0-rc1-work+ #9 0000000000000009 ffff88007c861e08 ffffffff81c614dc ffff88007c861e48 ffffffff8108f50f ffffffff82228240 0000000000000040 ffffffff8234a03c 0000000000000000 0000000000000000 0000000000000000 ffff88007c861e58 Call Trace: [<ffffffff81c614dc>] dump_stack+0x19/0x1b [<ffffffff8108f50f>] warn_slowpath_common+0x7f/0xc0 [<ffffffff8108f56a>] warn_slowpath_null+0x1a/0x20 [<ffffffff8234a071>] init_workqueues+0x35/0x505 ... v2: CPU number added to the generic debug info as requested by s390 folks and dropped the s390 specific dump_stack(). This loses %ksp from the debug message which the maintainers think isn't important enough to keep the s390-specific dump_stack() implementation. dump_stack_print_info() is moved to kernel/printk.c from lib/dump_stack.c. Because linkage is per objecct file, dump_stack_print_info() living in the same lib file as generic dump_stack() means that archs which implement custom dump_stack() - at this point, only blackfin - can't use dump_stack_print_info() as that will bring in the generic version of dump_stack() too. v1 The v1 patch broke build on blackfin due to this issue.

2013-04-29idr: introduce idr_alloc_cyclic()Jeff Layton1-0/+27
As Tejun points out, there are several users of the IDR facility that attempt to use it in a cyclic fashion. These users are likely to see -ENOSPC errors after the counter wraps one or more times however. This patchset adds a new idr_alloc_cyclic routine and converts several of these users to it. Many of these users are in obscure parts of the kernel, and I don't have a good way to test some of them. The change is pretty straightforward though, so hopefully it won't be an issue. There is one other cyclic user of idr_alloc that I didn't touch in ipc/util.c. That one is doing some strange stuff that I didn't quite understand, but it looks like it should probably be converted later somehow. This patch: Thus spake Tejun Heo: Ooh, BTW, the cyclic allocation is broken. It's prone to -ENOSPC after the first wraparound. There are several cyclic users in the kernel and I think it probably would be best to implement cyclic support in idr. This patch does that by adding new idr_alloc_cyclic function that such users in the kernel can use. With this, there's no need for a caller to keep track of the last value used as that's now tracked internally. This should prevent the ENOSPC problems that can hit when the "last allocated" counter exceeds INT_MAX. Later patches will convert existing cyclic users to the new interface.

2013-04-29argv_split(): teach it to handle mutable stringsOleg Nesterov1-47/+40
argv_split() allocates argv[count_argc(str)] array and assumes that it will find the same number of arguments later. This is obviously wrong if this string can be changed, say, by sysctl. With this patch argv_split() kstrndup's the whole string and does not split it, we simply replace the spaces with zeroes and keep the allocated memory in argv[-1] for argv_free(arg). We do not use argv[0] because: - str can be all-spaces or empty. In fact this case is fine, we could kfree() it before return, but: - str can have a space at the start, and we can not rely on kstrndup(skip_spaces(str)) because it can equally race if this string is mutable. Also, simplify count_argc() and kill the no longer used skip_arg().

The corresponding platform device is then fed into dev_get_gen_pool and the resulting gen_pool is returned.

In non-blockable contexts, the page allocator will emit a page allocation failure warning unless __GFP_NOWARN is specified.

But apparently I'm doing an -rc8 instead... * 'x86-kdump-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip: kexec: use Crash kernel for Crash kernel low x86, kdump: Change crashkernel_high/low= to crashkernel=,high/low x86, kdump: Retore crashkernel= to allocate under 896M x86, kdump: Set crashkernel_low automatically

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip Pull x86 fixes from Peter Anvin: "Three groups of fixes: 1. Make sure we don't execute the early microcode patching if family < 6, since it would touch MSRs which don't exist on those families, causing crashes. 2. The Xen partial emulation of HyperV can be dealt with more gracefully than just disabling the driver. 3. More EFI variable space magic. In particular, variables hidden from runtime code need to be taken into account too." * 'x86-urgent-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip: x86, microcode: Verify the family before dispatching microcode patching x86, hyperv: Handle Xen emulation of Hyper-V more gracefully x86,efi: Implement efi_no_storage_paranoia parameter efi: Export efi_query_variable_store() for efivars.ko x86/Kconfig: Make EFI select UCS2_STRING efi: Distinguish between "remaining space" and actually used space efi: Pass boot services variable info to runtime code Move utf16 functions to kernel core and rename x86,efi: Check max_size only if it is non-zero. x86, efivars: firmware bug workarounds should be in platform code
