Ilya reported that on a very slow machine he could reliably reproduce a race between forking init and kthreadd. We first fork init so that it obtains pid-1, however since the scheduler is already fully running at this point it can preempt and run the init thread before we spawn and set kthreadd_task. The init thread can then attempt spawning kthreads without kthreadd being present which results in an OOPS.

2010-06-27percpu: allow limited allocation before slab is onlineTejun Heo
This patch updates percpu allocator such that it can serve limited amount of allocation before slab comes online. This is primarily to allow slab to depend on working percpu allocator. Two parameters, PERCPU_DYNAMIC_EARLY_SIZE and SLOTS, determine how much memory space and allocation map slots are reserved. If this reserved area is exhausted, WARN_ON_ONCE() will trigger and allocation will fail till slab comes online. The following changes are made to implement early alloc. * pcpu_mem_alloc() now checks slab_is_available() * Chunks are allocated using pcpu_mem_alloc() * Init paths make sure ai->dyn_size is at least as large as PERCPU_DYNAMIC_EARLY_SIZE. * Initial alloc maps are allocated in __initdata and copied to kmalloc'd areas once slab is online.

2010-06-09ACPI: Do not try to set up acpi processor stuff on cores exceeding maxcpus=Thomas Renninger
Patch is against latest Linus master branch and is expected to be safe bug fix. You get: ACPI: HARDWARE addr space,NOT supported yet for each ACPI defined CPU which status is active, but exceeds maxcpus= count. As these "not booted" CPUs do not run an idle routine and echo X >/proc/acpi/processor/*/throttling did not work I couldn't find a way to really access not onlined/booted machines. Still this should get fixed and /proc/acpi/processor/X dirs of cores exceeding maxcpus should not show up. I wonder whether this could get cleaned up by truncating possible cpu mask and nr_cpu_ids to setup_max_cpus early some day (and not exporting setup_max_cpus anymore then). But this needs touching of a lot other places... Signed-off-by: Thomas Renninger <> CC: CC: CC: Signed-off-by: Len Brown <>

2010-05-20x86, kgdb, init: Add early and late debug statesJason Wessel
The kernel debugger can operate well before mm_init(), but the x86 hardware breakpoint code which uses the perf api requires that the kernel allocators are initialized. This means the kernel debug core needs to provide an optional arch specific call back to allow the initialization functions to run after the kernel has been further initialized. The kdb shell already had a similar restriction with an early initialization and late initialization. The kdb_init() was moved into the debug core's version of the late init which is called dbg_late_init(); CC: Signed-off-by: Jason Wessel <>

2010-04-26blk-cgroup: config options re-arrangementVivek Goyal
This patch fixes few usability and configurability issues. o All the cgroup based controller options are configurable from "Genral Setup/Control Group Support/" menu. blkio is the only exception. Hence make this option visible in above menu and make it configurable from there to bring it inline with rest of the cgroup based controllers. o Get rid of CONFIG_DEBUG_CFQ_IOSCHED. This option currently does two things. - Enable printing of cgroup paths in blktrace - Enables CONFIG_DEBUG_BLK_CGROUP, which in turn displays additional stat files in cgroup. If we are using group scheduling, blktrace data is of not really much use if cgroup information is not present. To get this data, currently one has to also enable CONFIG_DEBUG_CFQ_IOSCHED, which in turn brings the overhead of all the additional debug stat files which is not desired. Hence, this patch moves printing of cgroup paths under CONFIG_CFQ_GROUP_IOSCHED. This allows us to get rid of CONFIG_DEBUG_CFQ_IOSCHED completely. Now all the debug stat files are controlled only by CONFIG_DEBUG_BLK_CGROUP which can be enabled through config menu.

2010-04-24initramfs: handle unrecognised decompressor when unpackingPhillip Lougher
The unpack routine fails to handle the decompress_method() returning unrecognised decompressor (compress_name == NULL). This results in the routine looping eventually oopsing on an out of bounds memory access. Note this bug is usually hidden, only triggering on trailing junk after one or more correct compressed blocks. The case of the compressed archive being complete junk is (by accident?) caught by the if (state != Reset) check because state is initialised to Start, but not updated due to the decompressor not having been called. Obviously if the junk is trailing a correctly decompressed buffer, state == Reset from the previous call to the decompressor.

2010-03-30include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking ↵Tejun Heo
implicit slab.h inclusion from percpu.h percpu.h is included by sched.h and module.h and thus ends up being included when building most .c files. percpu.h includes slab.h which in turn includes gfp.h making everything defined by the two files universally available and complicating inclusion dependencies. percpu.h -> slab.h dependency is about to be removed. Prepare for this change by updating users of gfp and slab facilities include those headers directly instead of assuming availability. As this conversion needs to touch large number of source files, the following script is used as the basis of conversion. The script does the followings. * Scan files for gfp and slab usages and update includes such that only the necessary includes are there. ie. if only gfp is used, gfp.h, if slab is used, slab.h. * When the script inserts a new include, it looks at the include blocks and try to put the new include such that its order conforms to its surrounding. It's put in the include block which contains core kernel includes, in the same order that the rest are ordered - alphabetical, Christmas tree, rev-Xmas-tree or at the end if there doesn't seem to be any matching order. * If the script can't find a place to put a new include (mostly because the file doesn't have fitting include block), it prints out an error message indicating which .h file needs to be added to the file. The conversion was done in the following steps. 1. The initial automatic conversion of all .c files updated slightly over 4000 files, deleting around 700 includes and adding ~480 gfp.h and ~3000 slab.h inclusions. The script emitted errors for ~400 files. 2. Each error was manually checked. Some didn't need the inclusion, some needed manual addition while adding it to implementation .h or embedding .c file was more appropriate for others. This step added inclusions to around 150 files. 3. The script was run again and the output was compared to the edits from #2 to make sure no file was left behind. 4. Several build tests were done and a couple of problems were fixed. e.g. lib/decompress_*.c used malloc/free() wrappers around slab APIs requiring slab.h to be added manually. 5. The script was run on all .h files but without automatically editing them as sprinkling gfp.h and slab.h inclusions around .h files could easily lead to inclusion dependency hell. Most gfp.h inclusion directives were ignored as stuff from gfp.h was usually wildly available and often used in preprocessor macros. Each slab.h inclusion directive was examined and added manually as necessary. 6. percpu.h was updated not to include slab.h. 7. Build test were done on the following configurations and failures were fixed. CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL was turned off for all tests (as my distributed build env didn't work with gcov compiles) and a few more options had to be turned off depending on archs to make things build (like ipr on powerpc/64 which failed due to missing writeq). * x86 and x86_64 UP and SMP allmodconfig and a custom test config. * powerpc and powerpc64 SMP allmodconfig * sparc and sparc64 SMP allmodconfig * ia64 SMP allmodconfig * s390 SMP allmodconfig * alpha SMP allmodconfig * um on x86_64 SMP allmodconfig 8. percpu.h modifications were reverted so that it could be applied as a separate patch and serve as bisection point. Given the fact that I had only a couple of failures from tests on step 6, I'm fairly confident about the coverage of this conversion patch. If there is a breakage, it's likely to be something in one of the arch headers which should be easily discoverable easily on most builds of the specific arch.

Callbacks register_event() and unregister_event() must be defined for the control file; - write "<event_fd> <control_fd> <args>" to cgroup.event_control. Interpretation of args is defined by control file implementation; eventfd will be woken up by control file implementation or when the cgroup is removed. To unregister notification handler just close eventfd.

2010-03-03init: Open /dev/console from rootfsEric W. Biederman
To avoid potential problems with an empty /dev open /dev/console from rootfs instead of waiting to mount our root filesystem and mounting it there. This effectively guarantees that there will be a device node, and it won't be on a filesystem that we will ever unmount, so there are no issues with leaving /dev/console open and pinning the filesystem. This is actually more effective than automatically mounting devtmpfs on /dev because it removes removes the occasionally problematic assumption that /dev/console exists from the boot code. With this patch I was able to throw busybox on my /boot partition (which has no /dev directory) and boot into userspace without problems. The only possible negative consequence I can think of is that someone out there deliberately used did not use a character device that is major 5 minor 2 for /dev/console. Does anyone know of a situation in which that could make sense? Signed-off-by: Eric W. Biederman <> Signed-off-by: Al Viro <>
