2015-10-20stop_machine: Kill smp_hotplug_thread->pre_unpark, introduce ↵Oleg Nesterov-3/+2
stop_machine_unpark() 1. Change smpboot_unpark_thread() to check ->selfparking, just like smpboot_park_thread() does. 2. Introduce stop_machine_unpark() which sets ->enabled and calls kthread_unpark(). 3. Change smpboot_thread_call() and cpu_stop_init() to call stop_machine_unpark() by hand. This way: - IMO the ->selfparking logic becomes more consistent. - We can kill the smp_hotplug_thread->pre_unpark() method. - We can easily unpark the stopper thread earlier. Say, we can move stop_machine_unpark() from smpboot_thread_call() to sched_cpu_active() as Peter suggests.

2015-09-04smpboot: make cleanup to mirror setupFrederic Weisbecker-10/+2
The per-cpu kthread cleanup() callback is the mirror of the setup() callback. When the per-cpu kthread is started, it first calls setup() to initialize the resources which are then released by cleanup() when the kthread exits. Now since the introduction of a per-cpu kthread cpumask, the kthreads excluded by the cpumask on boot may happen to be parked immediately after their creation without taking the setup() stage, waiting to be asked to unpark to do so. Then when smpboot_unregister_percpu_thread() is later called, the kthread is stopped without having ever called setup(). But this triggers a bug as the kthread unconditionally calls cleanup() on exit but this doesn't mirror any setup(). Thus the kernel crashes because we try to free resources that haven't been initialized, as in the watchdog case: WATCHDOG disable 0 WATCHDOG disable 1 WATCHDOG disable 2 BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at (null) IP: hrtimer_active+0x26/0x60 [...] Call Trace: hrtimer_try_to_cancel+0x1c/0x280 hrtimer_cancel+0x1d/0x30 watchdog_disable+0x56/0x70 watchdog_cleanup+0xe/0x10 smpboot_thread_fn+0x23c/0x2c0 kthread+0xf8/0x110 ret_from_fork+0x3f/0x70 This bug is currently masked with explicit kthread unparking before kthread_stop() on smpboot_destroy_threads(). This forces a call to setup() and then unpark(). We could fix this by unconditionally calling setup() on kthread entry. But setup() isn't always cheap. In the case of watchdog it launches hrtimer, perf events, etc... So we may as well like to skip it if there are chances the kthread will never be used, as in a reduced cpumask value. So let's simply do a state machine check before calling cleanup() that makes sure setup() has been called before mirroring it. And remove the nasty hack workaround.

2015-06-24watchdog: add watchdog_cpumask sysctl to assist nohzChris Metcalf-0/+1
Change the default behavior of watchdog so it only runs on the housekeeping cores when nohz_full is enabled at build and boot time. Allow modifying the set of cores the watchdog is currently running on with a new kernel.watchdog_cpumask sysctl. In the current system, the watchdog subsystem runs a periodic timer that schedules the watchdog kthread to run. However, nohz_full cores are designed to allow userspace application code running on those cores to have 100% access to the CPU. So the watchdog system prevents the nohz_full application code from being able to run the way it wants to, thus the motivation to suppress the watchdog on nohz_full cores, which this patchset provides by default. However, if we disable the watchdog globally, then the housekeeping cores can't benefit from the watchdog functionality. So we allow disabling it only on some cores. See Documentation/lockup-watchdogs.txt for more information.

2015-06-24smpboot: allow excluding cpus from the smpboot threadsChris Metcalf-1/+58
This patch series allows the watchdog to run by default only on the housekeeping cores when nohz_full is in effect; this seems to be a good compromise short of turning it off completely (since the nohz_full cores can't tolerate a watchdog). To provide customizability, we add /proc/sys/kernel/watchdog_cpumask so that the set of cores running the watchdog can be tuned to different values after bootup. To implement this customizability, we add a new smpboot_update_cpumask_percpu_thread() API to the smpboot_thread subsystem that lets us park or unpark "unwanted" threads. And now that threads can be parked for long periods of time, we tweak the /proc/<pid>/stat and /proc/<pid>/status code so parked threads aren't reported as running, which is otherwise confusing. This patch (of 3): This change allows some cores to be excluded from running the smp_hotplug_thread tasks. The following commit to update kernel/watchdog.c to use this functionality is the motivating example, and more information on the motivation is provided there. A new smp_hotplug_thread field is introduced, "cpumask", which is cpumask field managed by the smpboot subsystem that indicates whether or not the given smp_hotplug_thread should run on that core; the cpumask is checked when deciding whether to unpark the thread. To limit the cpumask to less than cpu_possible, you must call smpboot_update_cpumask_percpu_thread() after registering.

2015-03-11smpboot: Add common code for notification from dying CPUPaul E. McKenney-0/+156
RCU ignores offlined CPUs, so they cannot safely run RCU read-side code. (They -can- use SRCU, but not RCU.) This means that any use of RCU during or after the call to arch_cpu_idle_dead(). Unfortunately, commit 2ed53c0d6cc99 added a complete() call, which will contain RCU read-side critical sections if there is a task waiting to be awakened. Which, as it turns out, there almost never is. In my qemu/KVM testing, the to-be-awakened task is not yet asleep more than 99.5% of the time. In current mainline, failure is even harder to reproduce, requiring a virtualized environment that delays the outgoing CPU by at least three jiffies between the time it exits its stop_machine() task at CPU_DYING time and the time it calls arch_cpu_idle_dead() from the idle loop. However, this problem really can occur, especially in virtualized environments, and therefore really does need to be fixed This suggests moving back to the polling loop, but using a much shorter wait, with gentle exponential backoff instead of the old 100-millisecond wait. Most of the time, the loop will exit without waiting at all, and almost all of the remaining uses will wait only five microseconds. If the outgoing CPU is preempted, a loop will wait one jiffy, then increase the wait by a factor of 11/10ths, rounding up. As before, there is a five-second timeout. This commit therefore provides common-code infrastructure to do the dying-to-surviving CPU handoff in a safe manner. This code also provides an indication at CPU-online of whether the CPU to be onlined previously timed out on offline. The new cpu_check_up_prepare() function returns -EBUSY if this CPU previously took more than five seconds to go offline, or -EAGAIN if it has not yet managed to go offline. The rationale for -EAGAIN is that it might still be preempted, so an additional wait might well find it correctly offlined. Architecture-specific code can decide how to handle these conditions. Systems in which CPUs take themselves completely offline might respond to an -EBUSY return as if it was a zero (success) return. Systems in which the surviving CPU must take some action might take it at this time, or might simply mark the other CPU as unusable. Note that architectures that take the easy way out and simply pass the -EBUSY and -EAGAIN upwards will change the sysfs API. Signed-off-by: Paul E.

2015-01-23smpboot: Add missing get_online_cpus() in smpboot_register_percpu_thread()Lai Jiangshan-0/+2

2013-07-14kernel: delete __cpuinit usage from all core kernel filesPaul Gortmaker-1/+1
The __cpuinit type of throwaway sections might have made sense some time ago when RAM was more constrained, but now the savings do not offset the cost and complications. For example, the fix in commit 5e427ec2d0 ("x86: Fix bit corruption at CPU resume time") is a good example of the nasty type of bugs that can be created with improper use of the various __init prefixes. After a discussion on LKML[1] it was decided that cpuinit should go the way of devinit and be phased out. Once all the users are gone, we can then finally remove the macros themselves from linux/init.h. This removes all the uses of the __cpuinit macros from C files in the core kernel directories (kernel, init, lib, mm, and include) that don't really have a specific maintainer.

2013-04-12kthread: Prevent unpark race which puts threads on the wrong cpuThomas Gleixner-2/+12
The smpboot threads rely on the park/unpark mechanism which binds per cpu threads on a particular core. Though the functionality is racy: CPU0 CPU1 CPU2 unpark(T) wake_up_process(T) clear(SHOULD_PARK) T runs leave parkme() due to !SHOULD_PARK bind_to(CPU2) BUG_ON(wrong CPU) We cannot let the tasks move themself to the target CPU as one of those tasks is actually the migration thread itself, which requires that it starts running on the target cpu right away. The solution to this problem is to prevent wakeups in park mode which are not from unpark(). That way we can guarantee that the association of the task to the target cpu is working correctly. Add a new task state (TASK_PARKED) which prevents other wakeups and use this state explicitly for the unpark wakeup. Peter noticed: Also, since the task state is visible to userspace and all the parked tasks are still in the PID space, its a good hint in ps and friends that these tasks aren't really there for the moment. The migration thread has another related issue. CPU0 CPU1 Bring up CPU2 create_thread(T) park(T) wait_for_completion() parkme() complete() sched_set_stop_task() schedule(TASK_PARKED) The sched_set_stop_task() call is issued while the task is on the runqueue of CPU1 and that confuses the hell out of the stop_task class on that cpu. So we need the same synchronizaion before sched_set_stop_task().

2013-02-27hlist: drop the node parameter from iteratorsSasha Levin-1/+1
I'm not sure why, but the hlist for each entry iterators were conceived list_for_each_entry(pos, head, member) The hlist ones were greedy and wanted an extra parameter: hlist_for_each_entry(tpos, pos, head, member) Why did they need an extra pos parameter? I'm not quite sure. Not only they don't really need it, it also prevents the iterator from looking exactly like the list iterator, which is unfortunate. Besides the semantic patch, there was some manual work required: - Fix up the actual hlist iterators in linux/list.h - Fix up the declaration of other iterators based on the hlist ones. - A very small amount of places were using the 'node' parameter, this was modified to use 'obj->member' instead. - Coccinelle didn't handle the hlist_for_each_entry_safe iterator properly, so those had to be fixed up manually.

2013-02-26stop_machine: Mark per cpu stopper enabled earlyThomas Gleixner-0/+2
commit 14e568e78 (stop_machine: Use smpboot threads) introduced the following regression: Before this commit the stopper enabled bit was set in the online notifier. CPU0 CPU1 cpu_up cpu online hotplug_notifier(ONLINE) stopper(CPU1)->enabled = true; ... stop_machine() The conversion to smpboot threads moved the enablement to the wakeup path of the parked thread. The majority of users seem to have the following working order: CPU0 CPU1 cpu_up cpu online unpark_threads() wakeup(stopper[CPU1]) .... stopper thread runs stopper(CPU1)->enabled = true; stop_machine() But Konrad and Sander have observed: CPU0 CPU1 cpu_up cpu online unpark_threads() wakeup(stopper[CPU1]) .... stop_machine() stopper thread runs stopper(CPU1)->enabled = true; Now the stop machinery kicks CPU0 into the stop loop, where it gets stuck forever because the queue code saw stopper(CPU1)->enabled == false, so CPU0 waits for CPU1 to enter stomp_machine, but the CPU1 stopper work got discarded due to enabled == false. Add a pre_unpark function to the smpboot thread descriptor and call it before waking the thread. This fixes the problem at hand, but the stop_machine code should be more robust. The stopper->enabled flag smells fishy at best. Thanks to Konrad for going through a loop of debug patches and providing the information to decode this issue.

2012-08-13smpboot: Provide infrastructure for percpu hotplug threadsThomas Gleixner-0/+229
Provide a generic interface for setting up and tearing down percpu threads. On registration the threads for already online cpus are created and started. On deregistration (modules) the threads are stoppped. During hotplug operations the threads are created, started, parked and unparked. The datastructure for registration provides a pointer to percpu storage space and optional setup, cleanup, park, unpark functions. These functions are called when the thread state changes. Each implementation has to provide a function which is queried and returns whether the thread should run and the thread function itself. The core code handles all state transitions and avoids duplicated code in the call sites.

The comment over idle_threads_init() really talks about the functionality of idle_init(). Move that comment to idle_init(), and add a suitable comment over idle_threads_init().

2012-05-24smpboot, idle: Optimize calls to smp_processor_id() in idle_threads_init()Srivatsa S. Bhat-2/+4
While trying to initialize idle threads for all cpus, idle_threads_init() calls smp_processor_id() in a loop, which is unnecessary. The intent is to initialize idle threads for all non-boot cpus. So just use a variable to note the boot cpu and use it in the loop. Signed-off-by: Srivatsa S.

2012-05-03smp, idle: Allocate idle thread for each possible cpu during bootSuresh Siddha-53/+19
percpu areas are already allocated during boot for each possible cpu. percpu idle threads can be considered as an extension of the percpu areas, and allocate them for each possible cpu during boot. This will eliminate the need for workqueue based idle thread allocation. In future we can move the idle thread area into the percpu area too.

2012-04-26smp: Provide generic idle thread allocationThomas Gleixner-1/+83
All SMP architectures have magic to fork the idle task and to store it for reusage when cpu hotplug is enabled. Provide a generic infrastructure for it. Create/reinit the idle thread for the cpu which is brought up in the generic code and hand the thread pointer to the architecture code via __cpu_up(). Note, that fork_idle() is called via a workqueue, because this guarantees that the idle thread does not get a reference to a user space VM. This can happen when the boot process did not bring up all possible cpus and a later cpu_up() is initiated via the sysfs interface. In that case fork_idle() would be called in the context of the user space task and take a reference on the user space VM.
