2014-07-17arch, locking: Ciao arch_mutex_cpu_relax()Davidlohr Bueso
The arch_mutex_cpu_relax() function, introduced by 34b133f, is hacky and ugly. It was added a few years ago to address the fact that common cpu_relax() calls include yielding on s390, and thus impact the optimistic spinning functionality of mutexes. Nowadays we use this function well beyond mutexes: rwsem, qrwlock, mcs and lockref. Since the macro that defines the call is in the mutex header, any users must include mutex.h and the naming is misleading as well. This patch (i) renames the call to cpu_relax_lowlatency ("relax, but only if you can do it with very low latency") and (ii) defines it in each arch's asm/processor.h local header, just like for regular cpu_relax functions. On all archs, except s390, cpu_relax_lowlatency is simply cpu_relax, and thus we can take it out of mutex.h. While this can seem redundant, I believe it is a good choice as it allows us to move out arch specific logic from generic locking primitives and enables future(?) archs to transparently define it, similarly to System Z.

2014-06-04hugetlb: restrict hugepage_migration_support() to x86_64Naoya Horiguchi
Currently hugepage migration is available for all archs which support pmd-level hugepage, but testing is done only for x86_64 and there're bugs for other archs. So to avoid breaking such archs, this patch limits the availability strictly to x86_64 until developers of other archs get interested in enabling this feature. Simply disabling hugepage migration on non-x86_64 archs is not enough to fix the reported problem where sys_move_pages() hits the BUG_ON() in follow_page(FOLL_GET), so let's fix this by checking if hugepage migration is supported in vma_migratable().

The Meta idle function jumps into the interrupt handler which efficiently blocks waiting for the next interrupt when it reads the interrupt status register (TXSTATI). No other (polling) idle functions can be used, therefore TIF_POLLING_NRFLAG is unnecessary, so lets remove it. Peter Zijlstra said: > Most archs have (x86) hlt or (arm) wfi like idle instructions, and if > that is your only possible idle function, you'll require the interrupt > to wake up and there's really no point to having the POLLING bit.

2014-05-15metag: Remove _STK_LIM_MAX overrideJames Hogan
Meta overrode _STK_LIM_MAX (the default RLIMIT_STACK hard limit) to 256MB, apparently in an attempt to prevent setup_arg_pages's STACK_GROWSUP code from choosing the maximum stack size of 1GB, which is far too large for Meta's limited virtual address space and hits a BUG_ON (stack_top is usually 0x3ffff000). However the commit "metag: Reduce maximum stack size to 256MB" reduces the absolute stack size limit to a safe value for metag. This allows the default _STK_LIM_MAX override to be removed, bringing the default behaviour in line with all other architectures. Parisc in particular recently removed their override of _STK_LIMT_MAX in commit e0d8898d76a7 (parisc: remove _STK_LIM_MAX override) since it subtly affects stack allocation semantics in userland. Meta's uapi/asm/resource.h can now be removed and switch to using generic-y.

2014-05-15parisc,metag: Do not hardcode maximum userspace stack sizeHelge Deller
This patch affects only architectures where the stack grows upwards (currently parisc and metag only). On those do not hardcode the maximum initial stack size to 1GB for 32-bit processes, but make it configurable via a config option. The main problem with the hardcoded stack size is, that we have two memory regions which grow upwards: stack and heap. To keep most of the memory available for heap in a flexmap memory layout, it makes no sense to hard allocate up to 1GB of the memory for stack which can't be used as heap then. This patch makes the stack size for 32-bit processes configurable and uses 80MB as default value which has been in use during the last few years on parisc and which hasn't showed any problems yet.

2014-05-15metag: Reduce maximum stack size to 256MBJames Hogan
Specify the maximum stack size for arches where the stack grows upward (parisc and metag) in asm/processor.h rather than hard coding in fs/exec.c so that metag can specify a smaller value of 256MB rather than 1GB. This fixes a BUG on metag if the RLIMIT_STACK hard limit is increased beyond a safe value by root. E.g. when starting a process after running "ulimit -H -s unlimited" it will then attempt to use a stack size of the maximum 1GB which is far too big for metag's limited user virtual address space (stack_top is usually 0x3ffff000): BUG: failure at fs/exec.c:589/shift_arg_pages()!

2014-05-15metag: fix memory barriersMikulas Patocka
Volatile access doesn't really imply the compiler barrier. Volatile access is only ordered with respect to other volatile accesses, it isn't ordered with respect to general memory accesses. Gcc may reorder memory accesses around volatile access, as we can see in this simple example (if we compile it with optimization, both increments of *b will be collapsed to just one): void fn(volatile int *a, long *b) { (*b)++; *a = 10; (*b)++; } Consequently, we need the compiler barrier after a write to the volatile variable, to make sure that the compiler doesn't reorder the volatile write with something else.

2014-04-07Kconfig: rename HAS_IOPORT to HAS_IOPORT_MAPUwe Kleine-König
If the renamed symbol is defined lib/iomap.c implements ioport_map and ioport_unmap and currently (nearly) all platforms define the port accessor functions outb/inb and friend unconditionally. So HAS_IOPORT_MAP is the better name for this. Consequently NO_IOPORT is renamed to NO_IOPORT_MAP. The motivation for this change is to reintroduce a symbol HAS_IOPORT that signals if outb/int et al are available. I will address that at least one merge window later though to keep surprises to a minimum and catch new introductions of (HAS|NO)_IOPORT.

As the data parameter is not really used by any ftrace_dyn_arch_init, remove that from ftrace_dyn_arch_init. This also removes the addr local variable from ftrace_init which is now unused.

No architecture uses the "data" parameter in ftrace_dyn_arch_init() in any way, it just sets the value to 0. And this is used as a return value in the caller -- ftrace_init, which just checks the retval against zero. Note there is also "return 0" in every ftrace_dyn_arch_init. So it is enough to check the retval and remove all the indirect sets of data on all archs.

2014-01-12arch: Introduce smp_load_acquire(), smp_store_release()Peter Zijlstra
A number of situations currently require the heavyweight smp_mb(), even though there is no need to order prior stores against later loads. Many architectures have much cheaper ways to handle these situations, but the Linux kernel currently has no portable way to make use of them. This commit therefore supplies smp_load_acquire() and smp_store_release() to remedy this situation. The new smp_load_acquire() primitive orders the specified load against any subsequent reads or writes, while the new smp_store_release() primitive orders the specifed store against any prior reads or writes. These primitives allow array-based circular FIFOs to be implemented without an smp_mb(), and also allow a theoretical hole in rcu_assign_pointer() to be closed at no additional expense on most architectures. In addition, the RCU experience transitioning from explicit smp_read_barrier_depends() and smp_wmb() to rcu_dereference() and rcu_assign_pointer(), respectively resulted in substantial improvements in readability. It therefore seems likely that replacing other explicit barriers with smp_load_acquire() and smp_store_release() will provide similar benefits. It appears that roughly half of the explicit barriers in core kernel code might be so replaced. [Changelog by PaulMck] Reviewed-by: "Paul E.

2013-11-13mm/arch: use __free_reserved_page() to simplify the codeXishi Qiu
Use __free_reserved_page() to simplify the code in arch. It used split_page() in consistent_alloc()/__dma_alloc_coherent()/dma_alloc_coherent(), so page->_count == 1, and we can free it safely. __free_reserved_page() ClearPageReserved() init_page_count() // it won't change the value __free_page() Signed-off-by: Xishi Qiu <qiuxishi@huawei.com> Cc: James Hogan <james.hogan@imgtec.com> Cc: Michal Simek <monstr@monstr.eu> Cc: Benjamin Herrenschmidt <benh@kernel.crashing.org> Cc: Paul Mackerras <paulus@samba.org> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
