2021-08-10torture: Replace deprecated CPU-hotplug functions.Sebastian Andrzej Siewior1-3/+3
The functions get_online_cpus() and put_online_cpus() have been deprecated during the CPU hotplug rework. They map directly to cpus_read_lock() and cpus_read_unlock(). Replace deprecated CPU-hotplug functions with the official version. The behavior remains unchanged. Cc: Davidlohr Bueso <dave@stgolabs.net> Cc: "Paul E.

2021-01-06torture: Maintain torture-specific set of CPUs-online booksPaul E. McKenney1-0/+16
The TREE01 rcutorture scenario intentionally creates confusion as to the number of available CPUs by specifying the "maxcpus=8 nr_cpus=43" kernel boot parameters. This can disable rcutorture's load shedding, which currently uses num_online_cpus(), which would count the extra 35 CPUs. However, the rcutorture guest OS will be provisioned with only 8 CPUs, which means that rcutorture will present full load even when all but one of the original 8 CPUs are offline. This can result in spurious errors due to extreme overloading of that single remaining CPU. This commit therefore keeps a separate set of books on the number of usable online CPUs, so that torture_num_online_cpus() is used for load shedding instead of num_online_cpus(). Note that initial sizing must use num_online_cpus() because torture_num_online_cpus() will return NR_CPUS until shortly after torture_onoff_init() is invoked.

This commit puts all CPUs back online at the end of a torture test, and also unconditionally puts them online at the beginning of the test, rather than just in the case of built-in tests.

2021-01-06torture: Add fuzzed hrtimer-based sleep functionsPaul E. McKenney1-0/+75
This commit adds torture_hrtimeout_ns(), torture_hrtimeout_us(), torture_hrtimeout_ms(), torture_hrtimeout_jiffies(), and torture_hrtimeout_s(), each of which uses hrtimers to block for a fuzzed time interval. These functions are intended to be used by the various torture tests to decouple wakeups from the timer wheel, thus providing more opportunity for Murphy to insert destructive race conditions.

2020-11-06rcutorture: Make stutter_wait() caller restore priorityPaul E. McKenney1-5/+4
Currently, stutter_wait() will happily spin waiting for the stutter interval to end even if the caller is running at a real-time priority level. This could starve normal-priority tasks for no good reason. This commit therefore drops the calling task's priority to SCHED_OTHER MAX_NICE if stutter_wait() needs to wait. But when it waits, stutter_wait() returns true, which allows the caller to restore the priority if needed. Callers that were already running at SCHED_OTHER MAX_NICE obviously do not need any changes, but this commit also restores priority for higher-priority callers. Signed-off-by: Paul E. McKenney <paulmck@kernel.org>
2020-11-06torture: Make torture_stutter() use hrtimerPaul E. McKenney1-5/+12
The torture_stutter() function uses schedule_timeout_interruptible() to time the stutter duration, but this can miss race conditions due to its being time-synchronized with everything else that is based on the timer wheels. This commit therefore converts torture_stutter() to use the high-resolution timers via schedule_hrtimeout(), and also to fuzz the stutter interval. While in the area, this commit also limits the spin-loop portion of the stutter_wait() function's wait loop to two jiffies, down from about one second. Signed-off-by: Paul E.

2020-11-06torture: Periodically pause in stutter_wait()Paul E. McKenney1-2/+14
Running locktorture scenario LOCK05 results in hangs: tools/testing/selftests/rcutorture/bin/kvm.sh --allcpus --torture lock --duration 3 --configs LOCK05 The lock_torture_writer() kthreads set themselves to MAX_NICE while running SCHED_OTHER. Other locktorture kthreads run at default niceness, also SCHED_OTHER. This results in these other locktorture kthreads indefinitely preempting the lock_torture_writer() kthreads. Note that the cond_resched() in the stutter_wait() function's loop is ineffective because this scenario is built with CONFIG_PREEMPT=y. It is not clear that such indefinite preemption is supposed to happen, but in the meantime this commit prevents kthreads running in stutter_wait() from being completely CPU-bound, thus allowing the other threads to get some CPU in a timely fashion. This commit also uses hrtimers to provide very short sleeps to avoid degrading the sudden-on testing that stutter is supposed to provide.

2020-02-20torture: Allow disabling of boottime CPU-hotplug torture operationsPaul E. McKenney1-0/+7
In theory, RCU-hotplug operations are supposed to work as soon as there is more than one CPU online. However, in practice, in normal production there is no way to make them happen until userspace is up and running. Besides which, on smaller systems, rcutorture doesn't start doing hotplug operations until 30 seconds after the start of boot, which on most systems also means the better part of 30 seconds after the end of boot. This commit therefore provides a new torture.disable_onoff_at_boot kernel boot parameter that suppresses CPU-hotplug torture operations until about the time that init is spawned. Of course, if you know of a need for boottime CPU-hotplug operations, then you should avoid passing this argument to any of the torture tests. You might also want to look at the splats linked to below. Link: https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20191206185208.GA25636@paulmck-ThinkPad-P72/ Signed-off-by: Paul E. McKenney <paulmck@kernel.org>
2020-02-20torture: Forgive -EBUSY from boottime CPU-hotplug operationsPaul E. McKenney1-4/+18
During boot, CPU hotplug is often disabled, for example by PCI probing. On large systems that take substantial time to boot, this can result in spurious RCU_HOTPLUG errors. This commit therefore forgives any boottime -EBUSY CPU-hotplug failures by adjusting counters to pretend that the corresponding attempt never happened. A non-splat record of the failed attempt is emitted to the console with the added string "(-EBUSY forgiven during boot)". Signed-off-by: Paul E. McKenney <paulmck@kernel.org>

2019-05-28torture: Allow inter-stutter interval to be specifiedPaul E. McKenney1-2/+4
Currently, the inter-stutter interval is the same as the stutter duration, that is, whatever number of jiffies is passed into torture_stutter_init(). This has worked well for quite some time, but the addition of forward-progress testing to rcutorture can delay processes for several seconds, which can triple the time that they are stuttered. This commit therefore adds a second argument to torture_stutter_init() that specifies the inter-stutter interval. While locktorture preserves the current behavior, rcutorture uses the RCU CPU stall warning interval to provide a wider inter-stutter interval. Signed-off-by: Paul E. McKenney <paulmck@linux.ibm.com>
2019-05-28rcutorture: Fix stutter_wait() return value and freelist checksPaul E. McKenney1-4/+13
The stutter_wait() function is supposed to return true if it actually waits and false otherwise, but it instead unconditionally returns false. Which hides a bug in rcu_torture_writer() that fails to account for the fact that one of the rcu_tortures[] array elements will normally be referenced by rcu_torture_current, and thus not be on the freelist. This commit therefore corrects the stutter_wait() return value and adds a check for rcu_torture_current to rcu_torture_writer()'s check that things get freed after everything goes quiescent. In addition, this commit causes torture_stutter() to give a bit more than one second (instead of only one jiffy) warning of the end of the stutter interval. Finally, this commit disables long-delay readers and aggressive update-side forward-progress checks while forward-progress testing is in flight.

2019-01-25rcutorture: Add grace period after CPU offlinePaul E. McKenney1-1/+5
Beyond a certain point in the CPU-hotplug offline process, timers get stranded on the outgoing CPU, and won't fire until that CPU comes back online, which might well be never. This commit therefore adds a hook in torture_onoff_init() that is invoked from torture_offline(), which rcutorture uses to occasionally wait for a grace period. This should result in failures for RCU implementations that rely on stranded timers eventually firing in the absence of the CPU coming back online.

2018-12-01torture: Bring any extra CPUs online during kernel startupPaul E. McKenney1-0/+12
Currently, the torture scripts rely on the initrd/init script to bring any extra CPUs online, for example, in the case where the kernel and qemu have different ideas about how many CPUs are present. This works, but is an unnecessary dependency on initrd, which needs to vary depending on the distro. This commit therefore causes torture_onoff() to check for additional CPUs, attempting to bring any found online. Errors are ignored, just as they are by the initrd/init script. Signed-off-by: Paul E.

2018-08-29rcutorture: Check GP completion at stutter endPaul E. McKenney1-1/+2
The rcu_torture_writer() function invokes stutter_wait() at the end of each writer pass, which occasionally blocks for an extended time period in order to ensure that RCU can handle intermittent loads. But part of handling a busy period is invoking all the callbacks before the end of the idle period induced by stutter_wait(). This commit therefore adds a return value to stutter_wait() indicating whether stutter_wait() actually waited. In addition, this commit causes rcu_torture_writer() to test this value and if set, checks that all the elements of the rcu_tortures[] array have been freed up. Signed-off-by: Paul E.

2018-06-25torture: Make online/offline messages appear only for verbose=2Paul E. McKenney1-6/+6
Some bugs reproduce quickly only at high CPU-hotplug rates, so the rcutorture TREE03 scenario now has only 200 milliseconds spacing between CPU-hotplug operations. At this rate, the torture-test pair of console messages per operation becomes a bit voluminous. This commit therefore converts the torture-test set of "verbose" kernel-boot arguments from bool to int, and prints the extra console messages only when verbose=2. The default is still verbose=1.

2018-05-15rcu: Rename cond_resched_rcu_qs() to cond_resched_tasks_rcu_qs()Paul E. McKenney1-1/+1
Commit e31d28b6ab8f ("trace: Eliminate cond_resched_rcu_qs() in favor of cond_resched()") substituted cond_resched() for the earlier call to cond_resched_rcu_qs(). However, the new-age cond_resched() does not do anything to help RCU-tasks grace periods because (1) RCU-tasks is only enabled when CONFIG_PREEMPT=y and (2) cond_resched() is a complete no-op when preemption is enabled. This situation results in hangs when running the trace benchmarks. A number of potential fixes were discussed on LKML (https://lkml.kernel.org/r/20180224151240.0d63a059@vmware.local.home), including making cond_resched() not be a no-op; making cond_resched() not be a no-op, but only when running tracing benchmarks; reverting the aforementioned commit (which works because cond_resched_rcu_qs() does provide an RCU-tasks quiescent state; and adding a call to the scheduler/RCU rcu_note_voluntary_context_switch() function. All were deemed unsatisfactory, either due to added cond_resched() overhead or due to magic functions inviting cargo culting. This commit renames cond_resched_rcu_qs() to cond_resched_tasks_rcu_qs(), which provides a clear hint as to what this function is doing and why and where it should be used, and then replaces the call to cond_resched() with cond_resched_tasks_rcu_qs() in the trace benchmark's benchmark_event_kthread() function.

The purpose of torture_runnable is to allow rcutorture and locktorture to be started and stopped via sysfs when they are built into the kernel (as in not compiled as loadable modules). However, the 0444 permissions for both instances of torture_runnable prevent this use case from ever being put into practice. Given that there have been no complaints about this deficiency, it is reasonable to conclude that no one actually makes use of this sysfs capability.

2014-09-07rcu: Use pr_alert/pr_cont for printing logsJoe Perches1-9/+7
User pr_alert/pr_cont for printing the logs from rcutorture module directly instead of writing it to a buffer and then printing it. This allows us from not having to allocate such buffers. Also remove a resulting empty function. I tested this using the parse-torture.sh script as follows: $ dmesg | grep torture > log.txt $ bash parse-torture.sh log.txt test $ There were no warnings which means that parsing went fine.

2014-05-14torture: Notice if an all-zero cpumask is passed inside a critical sectionIulia Manda1-6/+1
In torture_shuffle_tasks function, the check if an all-zero mask can be passed to set_cpus_allowed_ptr() is redundant after clearing the shuffle_idle_cpu bit. If the mask had more than one bit set, after clearing a bit it has at least one bit set. If the mask had only one bit set, a check is made at the beginning, where the function returns, as there is no need to shuffle only one cpu. Also, this code is executed inside a critical section, delimited by get_online_cpus(), and put_online_cpus(), preventing CPUs from leaving between the check of num_online_cpus and the calls to set_cpus_allowed_ptr() function.
