2007-12-20mm: fix exit_mmap BUG() on a.out binary exitIvan Kokshaysky-1/+0
The problem was introduced by commit "mm: variable length argument support" (b6a2fea39318e43fee84fa7b0b90d68bed92d2ba) as it didn't update fs/binfmt_aout.c like other binfmt's. I noticed that on alpha when accidentally launched old OSF/1 Acrobat Reader binary. Obviously, other architectures are affected as well.

2007-12-19Do dirty page accounting when removing a page from the page cacheLinus Torvalds-0/+12
Krzysztof Oledzki noticed a dirty page accounting leak on some of his machines, causing the machine to eventually lock up when the kernel decided that there was too much dirty data, but nobody could actually write anything out to fix it. The culprit turns out to be filesystems (cough ext3 with data=journal cough) that re-dirty the page when the "->invalidatepage()" callback is called. Fix it up by doing a final dirty page accounting check when we actually remove the page from the page cache.

I tried to upgrade an IA32 chroot on my IA64 to a new glibc with TLS. It kept dying because set_thread_area was returning -ESRCH (bugs.debian.org/451939). I instrumented arch/ia64/ia32/sys_ia32.c:get_free_idx() and ended up seeing output like [pid] idx desc->a desc->b ----------------------------- [2710] 0 -> c6b0ffff 40dff31b [2710] 1 -> 0 0 [2710] 2 -> 0 0 [2710] 0 -> c6b0ffff 40dff31b [2710] 1 -> c6b0ffff 40dff31b [2710] 2 -> 0 0 [2711] 0 -> c6b0ffff 40dff31b [2711] 1 -> c6b0ffff 40dff31b [2711] 2 -> 48c0ffff 40dff317 which suggested to me that TLS pointers were surviving exec() calls, leading to GDT pointers filling up and the eventual failure of get_free_idx().

2007-12-18[IA64] Avoid unnecessary TLB flushes when allocating memoryde Dinechin, Christophe (Integrity VM)-3/+15
Improve performance of memory allocations on ia64 by avoiding a global TLB purge to purge a single page from the file cache. This happens whenever we evict a page from the buffer cache to make room for some other allocation. Test case: Run 'find /usr -type f | xargs cat > /dev/null' in the background to fill the buffer cache, then run something that uses memory, e.g. 'gmake -j50 install'. Instrumentation showed that the number of global TLB purges went from a few millions down to about 170 over a 12 hours run of the above. The performance impact is particularly noticeable under virtualization, because a virtual TLB is generally both larger and slower to purge than a physical one.

2007-12-18x86: fix "Kernel panic - not syncing: IO-APIC + timer doesn't work!"Ingo Molnar-8/+24
this is the tale of a full day spent debugging an ancient but elusive bug. after booting up thousands of random .config kernels, i finally happened to generate a .config that produced the following rare bootup failure on 32-bit x86: | ..TIMER: vector=0x31 apic1=0 pin1=2 apic2=-1 pin2=-1 | ..MP-BIOS bug: 8254 timer not connected to IO-APIC | ...trying to set up timer (IRQ0) through the 8259A ... failed. | ...trying to set up timer as Virtual Wire IRQ... failed. | ...trying to set up timer as ExtINT IRQ... failed :(. | Kernel panic - not syncing: IO-APIC + timer doesn't work! Boot with apic=debug | and send a report. Then try booting with the 'noapic' option this bug has been reported many times during the years, but it was never reproduced nor fixed. the bug that i hit was extremely sensitive to .config details. First i did a .config-bisection - suspecting some .config detail. That led to CONFIG_X86_MCE: enabling X86_MCE magically made the bug disappear and the system would boot up just fine. Debugging my way through the MCE code ended up identifying two unlikely candidates: the thing that made a real difference to the hang was that X86_MCE did two printks: Intel machine check architecture supported. Intel machine check reporting enabled on CPU#1. Adding the same printks to a !CONFIG_X86_MCE kernel made the bug go away! this left timing as the main suspect: i experimented with adding various udelay()s to the arch/x86/kernel/io_apic_32.c:check_timer() function, and the race window turned out to be narrower than 30 microseconds (!). That made debugging especially funny, debugging without having printk ability before the bug hits is ... interesting ;-) eventually i started suspecting IRQ activities - those are pretty much the only thing that happen this early during bootup and have the timescale of a few dozen microseconds. Also, check_timer() changes the IRQ hardware in various creative ways, so the main candidate became IRQ0 interaction. i've added a counter to track timer irqs (on which core they arrived, at what exact time, etc.) and found that no timer IRQ would arrive after the bug condition hits - even if we re-enable IRQ0 and re-initialize the i8259A, but that we'd get a small number of timer irqs right around the time when we call the check_timer() function. Eventually i got the following backtrace triggered from debug code in the timer interrupt: ...trying to set up timer as Virtual Wire IRQ... failed. ...trying to set up timer as ExtINT IRQ... Pid: 1, comm: swapper Not tainted (2.6.24-rc5 #57) EIP: 0060:[<c044d57e>] EFLAGS: 00000246 CPU: 0 EIP is at _spin_unlock_irqrestore+0x5/0x1c EAX: c0634178 EBX: 00000000 ECX: c4947d63 EDX: 00000246 ESI: 00000002 EDI: 00010031 EBP: c04e0f2e ESP: f7c41df4 DS: 007b ES: 007b FS: 00d8 GS: 0000 SS: 0068 CR0: 8005003b CR2: ffe04000 CR3: 00630000 CR4: 000006d0 DR0: 00000000 DR1: 00000000 DR2: 00000000 DR3: 00000000 DR6: ffff0ff0 DR7: 00000400 [<c05f5784>] setup_IO_APIC+0x9c3/0xc5c the spin_unlock() was called from init_8259A(). Wait ... we have an IRQ0 entry while we are in the middle of setting up the local APIC, the i8259A and the PIT?? That is certainly not how it's supposed to work! check_timer() was supposed to be called with irqs turned off - but this eroded away sometime in the past. This code would still work most of the time because this code runs very quickly, but just the right timing conditions are present and IRQ0 hits in this small, ~30 usecs window, timer irqs stop and the system does not boot up. Also, given how early this is during bootup, the hang is very deterministic - but it would only occur on certain machines (and certain configs). The fix was quite simple: disable/restore interrupts properly in this function. With that in place the test-system now boots up just fine. (64-bit x86 io_apic_64.c had the same bug.) Phew!

2007-12-18genirq: revert lazy irq disable for simple irqsSteven Rostedt-7/+2
In commit 76d2160147f43f982dfe881404cfde9fd0a9da21 lazy irq disabling was implemented, and the simple irq handler had a masking set to it. Remy Bohmer discovered that some devices in the ARM architecture would trigger the mask, but never unmask it. His patch to do the unmasking was questioned by Russell King about masking simple irqs to begin with. Looking further, it was discovered that the problems Remy was seeing was due to improper use of the simple handler by devices, and he later submitted patches to fix those. But the issue that was uncovered was that the simple handler should never mask. This patch reverts the masking in the simple handler.

2007-12-18x86: jprobe bugfixMasami Hiramatsu-9/+5
jprobe for x86-64 may cause kernel page fault when the jprobe_return() is called from incorrect function. - Use jprobe_saved_regs instead getting it from stack. (Especially on x86-64, it may get incorrect data, because pt_regs can not be get by using container_of(rsp)) - Change the type of stack pointer to unsigned long *.

Add unlocked version for use by irq_chip.set_type handlers which may wish to change handler to level or edge handler when IRQ type is changed. The normal set_irq_handler() call cannot be used because it tries to take irq_desc.lock which is already held when the irq_chip.set_type hook is called.

2007-12-18clockevents: fix reprogramming decision in oneshot broadcastThomas Gleixner-35/+21
Resolve the following regression of a choppy, almost unusable laptop: http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/12/7/299 http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9525 A previous version of the code did the reprogramming of the broadcast device in the return from idle code. This was removed, but the logic in tick_handle_oneshot_broadcast() was kept the same. When a broadcast interrupt happens we signal the expiry to all CPUs which have an expired event. If none of the CPUs has an expired event, which can happen in dyntick mode, then we reprogram the broadcast device. We do not reprogram otherwise, but this is only correct if all CPUs, which are in the idle broadcast state have been woken up. The code ignores, that there might be pending not yet expired events on other CPUs, which are in the idle broadcast state. So the delivery of those events can be delayed for quite a time. Change the tick_handle_oneshot_broadcast() function to check for CPUs, which are in broadcast state and are not woken up by the current event, and enforce the rearming of the broadcast device for those CPUs.

2007-12-18sched: mark rwsem functions as __sched for wchan/profilingLivio Soares-3/+4
This following commit http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commitdiff;h=fdf8cb0909b531f9ae8f9b9d7e4eb35ba3505f07 un-inlined a low-level rwsem function, but did not mark it as __sched. The result is that it now shows up as thread wchan (which also affects /proc/profile stats). The following simple patch fixes this by properly marking rwsem_down_failed_common() as a __sched function. Also in this patch, which is up for discussion, marks down_read() and down_write() proper as __sched. For profiling, it is pretty much useless to know that a semaphore is beig help - it is necessary to know _which_ one. By going up another frame on the stack, the information becomes much more useful. In summary, the below change to lib/rwsem.c should be applied; the changes to kernel/rwsem.c could be applied if other kernel hackers agree with my proposal that down_read()/down_write() in the profile is not enough.

2007-12-18sched: fix crash on ia64, introduce task_current()Dmitry Adamushko-6/+11
Some services (e.g. sched_setscheduler(), rt_mutex_setprio() and sched_move_task()) must handle a given task differently in case it's the 'rq->curr' task on its run-queue. The task_running() interface is not suitable for determining such tasks for platforms with one of the following options: #define __ARCH_WANT_UNLOCKED_CTXSW #define __ARCH_WANT_INTERRUPTS_ON_CTXSW Due to the fact that it makes use of 'p->oncpu == 1' as a criterion but such a task is not necessarily 'rq->curr'.
