2015-01-15rcu: Optionally run grace-period kthreads at real-time priorityPaul E. McKenney-3/+4
Recent testing has shown that under heavy load, running RCU's grace-period kthreads at real-time priority can improve performance (according to 0day test robot) and reduce the incidence of RCU CPU stall warnings. However, most systems do just fine with the default non-realtime priorities for these kthreads, and it does not make sense to expose the entire user base to any risk stemming from this change, given that this change is of use only to a few users running extremely heavy workloads. Therefore, this commit allows users to specify realtime priorities for the grace-period kthreads, but leaves them running SCHED_OTHER by default. The realtime priority may be specified at build time via the RCU_KTHREAD_PRIO Kconfig parameter, or at boot time via the rcutree.kthread_prio parameter. Either way, 0 says to continue the default SCHED_OTHER behavior and values from 1-99 specify that priority of SCHED_FIFO behavior. Note that a value of 0 is not permitted when the RCU_BOOST Kconfig parameter is specified. Signed-off-by: Paul E. McKenney <paulmck@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

SRCU is not necessary to be compiled by default in all cases. For tinification efforts not compiling SRCU unless necessary is desirable. The current patch tries to make compiling SRCU optional by introducing a new Kconfig option CONFIG_SRCU which is selected when any of the components making use of SRCU are selected.

2014-12-17init: fix read-write root mountMiklos Szeredi-2/+4
If mount flags don't have MS_RDONLY, iso9660 returns EACCES without actually checking if it's an iso image. This tricks mount_block_root() into retrying with MS_RDONLY. This results in a read-only root despite the "rw" boot parameter if the actual filesystem was checked after iso9660. I believe the behavior of iso9660 is okay, while that of mount_block_root() is not. It should rather try all types without MS_RDONLY and only then retry with MS_RDONLY. This change also makes the code more robust against the case when EACCES is returned despite MS_RDONLY, which would've resulted in a lockup.

I'm pushing this in now. This will allow Thomas to debug his irq work for 3.20. This adds two new features: 1) Allow traceopoints to be enabled right after mm_init(). By passing in the trace_event= kernel command line parameter, tracepoints can be enabled at boot up. For debugging things like the initialization of interrupts, it is needed to have tracepoints enabled very early. People have asked about this before and this has been on my todo list. As it can be helpful for Thomas to debug his upcoming 3.20 IRQ work, I'm pushing this now. This way he can add tracepoints into the IRQ set up and have users enable them when things go wrong. 2) Have the tracepoints printed via printk() (the console) when they are triggered. If the irq code locks up or reboots the box, having the tracepoint output go into the kernel ring buffer is useless for debugging. But being able to add the tp_printk kernel command line option along with the trace_event= option will have these tracepoints printed as they occur, and that can be really useful for debugging early lock up or reboot problems. This code is not that intrusive and it passed all my tests. Thomas tried them out too and it works for his needs.

2014-12-15tracing: Move enabling tracepoints to just after rcu_init()Steven Rostedt (Red Hat)-0/+4
Enabling tracepoints at boot up can be very useful. The tracepoint can be initialized right after RCU has been. There's no need to wait for the early_initcall() to be called. That's too late for some things that can use tracepoints for debugging. Move the logic to enable tracepoints out of the initcalls and into init/main.c to right after rcu_init(). This also allows trace_printk() to be used early too.

2014-12-13mm/page_ext: resurrect struct page extending code for debuggingJoonsoo Kim-0/+7
When we debug something, we'd like to insert some information to every page. For this purpose, we sometimes modify struct page itself. But, this has drawbacks. First, it requires re-compile. This makes us hesitate to use the powerful debug feature so development process is slowed down. And, second, sometimes it is impossible to rebuild the kernel due to third party module dependency. At third, system behaviour would be largely different after re-compile, because it changes size of struct page greatly and this structure is accessed by every part of kernel. Keeping this as it is would be better to reproduce errornous situation. This feature is intended to overcome above mentioned problems. This feature allocates memory for extended data per page in certain place rather than the struct page itself. This memory can be accessed by the accessor functions provided by this code. During the boot process, it checks whether allocation of huge chunk of memory is needed or not. If not, it avoids allocating memory at all. With this advantage, we can include this feature into the kernel in default and can avoid rebuild and solve related problems. Until now, memcg uses this technique. But, now, memcg decides to embed their variable to struct page itself and it's code to extend struct page has been removed. I'd like to use this code to develop debug feature, so this patch resurrect it. To help these things to work well, this patch introduces two callbacks for clients. One is the need callback which is mandatory if user wants to avoid useless memory allocation at boot-time. The other is optional, init callback, which is used to do proper initialization after memory is allocated. Detailed explanation about purpose of these functions is in code comment. Please refer it. Others are completely same with previous extension code in memcg.

2014-12-10take the targets of /proc/*/ns/* symlinks to separate fsAl Viro-0/+2
New pseudo-filesystem: nsfs. Targets of /proc/*/ns/* live there now. It's not mountable (not even registered, so it's not in /proc/filesystems, etc.). Files on it *are* bindable - we explicitly permit that in do_loopback(). This stuff lives in fs/nsfs.c now; proc_ns_fget() moved there as well. get_proc_ns() is a macro now (it's simply returning ->i_private; would have been an inline, if not for header ordering headache). proc_ns_inode() is an ex-parrot. The interface used in procfs is ns_get_path(path, task, ops) and ns_get_name(buf, size, task, ops). Dentries and inodes are never hashed; a non-counting reference to dentry is stashed in ns_common (removed by ->d_prune()) and reused by ns_get_path() if present. See ns_get_path()/ns_prune_dentry/nsfs_evict() for details of that mechanism. As the result, proc_ns_follow_link() has stopped poking in nd->path.mnt; it does nd_jump_link() on a consistent <vfsmount,dentry> pair it gets from ns_get_path().

2014-12-10init: allow CONFIG_INIT_FALLBACK=n to disable defaults if init= failsAndy Lutomirski-1/+22
If a user puts init=/whatever on the command line and /whatever can't be run, then the kernel will try a few default options before giving up. If init=/whatever came from a bootloader prompt, then this is unexpected but probably harmless. On the other hand, if it comes from a script (e.g. a tool like virtme or perhaps a future kselftest script), then the fallbacks are likely to exist, but they'll do the wrong thing. For example, they might unexpectedly invoke systemd. This adds a config option CONFIG_INIT_FALLBACK. If unset, then a failure to run the specified init= process be fatal. The tentative plan is to remove CONFIG_INIT_FALLBACK for 3.20.

2014-12-10mm: embed the memcg pointer directly into struct pageJohannes Weiner-7/+0
Memory cgroups used to have 5 per-page pointers. To allow users to disable that amount of overhead during runtime, those pointers were allocated in a separate array, with a translation layer between them and struct page. There is now only one page pointer remaining: the memcg pointer, that indicates which cgroup the page is associated with when charged. The complexity of runtime allocation and the runtime translation overhead is no longer justified to save that *potential* 0.19% of memory. With CONFIG_SLUB, page->mem_cgroup actually sits in the doubleword padding after the page->private member and doesn't even increase struct page, and then this patch actually saves space. Remaining users that care can still compile their kernels without CONFIG_MEMCG. text data bss dec hex filename 8828345 1725264 983040 11536649 b00909 vmlinux.old 8827425 1725264 966656 11519345 afc571 vmlinux.new [mhocko@suse.cz: update Documentation/cgroups/memory.txt] Signed-off-by: Johannes Weiner <hannes@cmpxchg.org> Acked-by: Michal Hocko <mhocko@suse.cz> Acked-by: Vladimir Davydov <vdavydov@parallels.com> Acked-by: David S.

2014-12-10mm: memcontrol: lockless page countersJohannes Weiner-1/+4
Memory is internally accounted in bytes, using spinlock-protected 64-bit counters, even though the smallest accounting delta is a page. The counter interface is also convoluted and does too many things. Introduce a new lockless word-sized page counter API, then change all memory accounting over to it. The translation from and to bytes then only happens when interfacing with userspace. The removed locking overhead is noticable when scaling beyond the per-cpu charge caches - on a 4-socket machine with 144-threads, the following test shows the performance differences of 288 memcgs concurrently running a page fault benchmark: vanilla: 18631648.500498 task-clock (msec) # 140.643 CPUs utilized ( +- 0.33% ) 1,380,638 context-switches # 0.074 K/sec ( +- 0.75% ) 24,390 cpu-migrations # 0.001 K/sec ( +- 8.44% ) 1,843,305,768 page-faults # 0.099 M/sec ( +- 0.00% ) 50,134,994,088,218 cycles # 2.691 GHz ( +- 0.33% ) <not supported> stalled-cycles-frontend <not supported> stalled-cycles-backend 8,049,712,224,651 instructions # 0.16 insns per cycle ( +- 0.04% ) 1,586,970,584,979 branches # 85.176 M/sec ( +- 0.05% ) 1,724,989,949 branch-misses # 0.11% of all branches ( +- 0.48% ) 132.474343877 seconds time elapsed ( +- 0.21% ) lockless: 12195979.037525 task-clock (msec) # 133.480 CPUs utilized ( +- 0.18% ) 832,850 context-switches # 0.068 K/sec ( +- 0.54% ) 15,624 cpu-migrations # 0.001 K/sec ( +- 10.17% ) 1,843,304,774 page-faults # 0.151 M/sec ( +- 0.00% ) 32,811,216,801,141 cycles # 2.690 GHz ( +- 0.18% ) <not supported> stalled-cycles-frontend <not supported> stalled-cycles-backend 9,999,265,091,727 instructions # 0.30 insns per cycle ( +- 0.10% ) 2,076,759,325,203 branches # 170.282 M/sec ( +- 0.12% ) 1,656,917,214 branch-misses # 0.08% of all branches ( +- 0.55% ) 91.369330729 seconds time elapsed ( +- 0.45% ) On top of improved scalability, this also gets rid of the icky long long types in the very heart of memcg, which is great for 32 bit and also makes the code a lot more readable. Notable differences between the old and new API: - res_counter_charge() and res_counter_charge_nofail() become page_counter_try_charge() and page_counter_charge() resp. to match the more common kernel naming scheme of try_do()/do() - res_counter_uncharge_until() is only ever used to cancel a local counter and never to uncharge bigger segments of a hierarchy, so it's replaced by the simpler page_counter_cancel() - res_counter_set_limit() is replaced by page_counter_limit(), which expects its callers to serialize against themselves - res_counter_memparse_write_strategy() is replaced by page_counter_limit(), which rounds down to the nearest page size - rather than up. This is more reasonable for explicitely requested hard upper limits. - to keep charging light-weight, page_counter_try_charge() charges speculatively, only to roll back if the result exceeds the limit. Because of this, a failing bigger charge can temporarily lock out smaller charges that would otherwise succeed. The error is bounded to the difference between the smallest and the biggest possible charge size, so for memcg, this means that a failing THP charge can send base page charges into reclaim upto 2MB (4MB) before the limit would have been reached. This should be acceptable.

2014-11-17integrity: provide a hook to load keys when rootfs is readyDmitry Kasatkin-1/+5
Keys can only be loaded once the rootfs is mounted. Initcalls are not suitable for that. This patch defines a special hook to load the x509 public keys onto the IMA keyring, before attempting to access any file. The keys are required for verifying the file's signature. The hook is called after the root filesystem is mounted and before the kernel calls 'init'. Changes in v3: * added more explanation to the patch description (Mimi) Changes in v2: * Hook renamed as 'integrity_load_keys()' to handle both IMA and EVM keys by integrity subsystem. * Hook patch moved after defining loading functions Signed-off-by: Dmitry Kasatkin <d.kasatkin@samsung.com> Signed-off-by: Mimi Zohar <zohar@linux.vnet.ibm.com>
2014-11-11param: fix crash on bad kernel argumentsDaniel Thompson-1/+1
Currently if the user passes an invalid value on the kernel command line then the kernel will crash during argument parsing. On most systems this is very hard to debug because the console hasn't been initialized yet. This is a regression due to commit 51e158c12aca ("param: hand arguments after -- straight to init") which, in response to the systemd debug controversy, made it possible to explicitly pass arguments to init. To achieve this parse_args() was extended from simply returning an error code to returning a pointer. Regretably the new init args logic does not perform a proper validity check on the pointer resulting in a crash. This patch fixes the validity check. Should the check fail then no arguments will be passed to init. This is reasonable and matches how the kernel treats its own arguments (i.e. no error recovery).

They can use BPF_SYSCALL to allow loading from userspace or select BPF to use it directly from kernel in NET-less configs. - in 3.18 programs cannot be attached to events yet, so don't force it on - when the rest of eBPF infra is there in 3.19+, it's still useful to switch it off to minimize kernel size bloat-o-meter on x64 shows: add/remove: 0/60 grow/shrink: 0/2 up/down: 0/-15601 (-15601) tested with many different config combinations.

2014-10-09mm: remove misleading ARCH_USES_NUMA_PROT_NONEMel Gorman-11/+0
ARCH_USES_NUMA_PROT_NONE was defined for architectures that implemented _PAGE_NUMA using _PROT_NONE. This saved using an additional PTE bit and relied on the fact that PROT_NONE vmas were skipped by the NUMA hinting fault scanner. This was found to be conceptually confusing with a lot of implicit assumptions and it was asked that an alternative be found. Commit c46a7c81 "x86: define _PAGE_NUMA by reusing software bits on the PMD and PTE levels" redefined _PAGE_NUMA on x86 to be one of the swap PTE bits and shrunk the maximum possible swap size but it did not go far enough. There are no architectures that reuse _PROT_NONE as _PROT_NUMA but the relics still exist. This patch removes ARCH_USES_NUMA_PROT_NONE and removes some unnecessary duplication in powerpc vs the generic implementation by defining the types the core NUMA helpers expected to exist from x86 with their ppc64 equivalent. This necessitated that a PTE bit mask be created that identified the bits that distinguish present from NUMA pte entries but it is expected this will only differ between arches based on _PAGE_PROTNONE. The naming for the generic helpers was taken from x86 originally but ppc64 has types that are equivalent for the purposes of the helper so they are mapped instead of duplicating code.

commit 03b8c7b623c80af264c4c8d6111e5c6289933666 ("futex: Allow architectures to skip futex_atomic_cmpxchg_inatomic() test") added the HAVE_FUTEX_CMPXCHG symbol right below FUTEX. This placed it right in the middle of the options for the EXPERT menu. However, HAVE_FUTEX_CMPXCHG does not depend on EXPERT or FUTEX, so Kconfig stops placing items in the EXPERT menu, and displays the remaining several EXPERT items (starting with EPOLL) directly in the General Setup menu. Since both users of HAVE_FUTEX_CMPXCHG only select it "if FUTEX", make HAVE_FUTEX_CMPXCHG itself depend on FUTEX. With this change, the subsequent items display as part of the EXPERT menu again; the EMBEDDED menu now appears as the next top-level item in the General Setup menu, which makes General Setup much shorter and more usable.

2014-09-17Revert "init: make rootdelay=N consistent with rootwait behaviour"Paul Gortmaker-6/+6
This reverts commit 4dfe694f616e00e6fd83e5bbcd7a3c4d7113493d. In that, we did: Here we move the rootdelay code to be right beside the rootwait code, so that their behaviour is consistent. ...which is fine, but in hindsight, perhaps moving the rootwait to be beside the rootdelay would have been better. We also indicated: It should be noted that in doing so, the actions based on the saved_root_name[0] and initrd_load() were previously put on hold by rootdelay=N and now currently will not be delayed. However, I think consistent behaviour is more important than matching historical behaviour of delaying the above two operations. But Pavel reported an instance where an ARM target with root on MMC was failing to mount root, and Russell diagnosed it to the fact that the call to set ROOT_DEV within the saved_root_name[0] processing block mentioned above was no longer being delayed. Rather than moving both wait clauses to the original position of rootdelay and risking unearthing other possible corner case breakage at this point in time, we simply revert now and we can revisit trying the alternate/earlier location in another development cycle.

2014-09-16rcu: Fix attempt to avoid unsolicited offloading of callbacksPaul E. McKenney-2/+3
Commit b58cc46c5f6b (rcu: Don't offload callbacks unless specifically requested) failed to adjust the callback lists of the CPUs that are known to be no-CBs CPUs only because they are also nohz_full= CPUs. This failure can result in callbacks that are posted during early boot getting stranded on nxtlist for CPUs whose no-CBs property becomes apparent late, and there can also be spurious warnings about offline CPUs posting callbacks. This commit fixes these problems by adding an early-boot rcu_init_nohz() that properly initializes the no-CBs CPUs. Note that kernels built with CONFIG_RCU_NOCB_CPU_ALL=y or with CONFIG_RCU_NOCB_CPU=n do not exhibit this bug. Neither do kernels booted without the nohz_full= boot parameter. Signed-off-by: Paul E.

2014-09-13nohz: Move nohz full init call to tick initFrederic Weisbecker-1/+0
This way we unbloat a bit main.c and more importantly we initialize nohz full after init_IRQ(). This dependency will be needed in further patches because nohz full needs irq work to raise its own IRQ. Information about the support for this ability on ARM64 is obtained on init_IRQ() which initialize the pointer to __smp_call_function. Since tick_init() is called right after init_IRQ(), this is a good place to call tick_nohz_init() and prepare for that dependency.
