2013-04-25parisc: use spin_lock_irqsave/spin_unlock_irqrestore for PTE updatesJohn David Anglin
User applications running on SMP kernels have long suffered from instability and random segmentation faults. This patch improves the situation although there is more work to be done. One of the problems is the various routines in pgtable.h that update page table entries use different locking mechanisms, or no lock at all (set_pte_at). This change modifies the routines to all use the same lock pa_dbit_lock. This lock is used for dirty bit updates in the interruption code. The patch also purges the TLB entries associated with the PTE to ensure that inconsistent values are not used after the page table entry is updated. The UP and SMP code are now identical. The change also includes a minor update to the purge_tlb_entries function in cache.c to improve its efficiency.

2013-02-20parisc: disable preemption while flushing D- or I-caches through TMPALIAS regionJohn David Anglin
It is necessary to disable preemption during cache flushes done through the TMPALIAS region to ensure that the TLB setup is not clobbered by another flush. Signed-off-by: John David Anglin <dave.anglin@bell.net> Signed-off-by: Helge Deller <deller@gmx.de>
2013-02-20parisc: fixes and cleanups in page cache flushing (4/4)John David Anglin
CONFIG_PARISC_TMPALIAS enables clear_user_highpage and copy_user_highpage. These are essentially alternative implementations of clear_user_page and copy_user_page. They don't have anything to do with x86 high pages, but they build on the infrastructure to save a few instructions. Read the comment in clear_user_highpage as it is very important to the implementation. For this reason, there isn't any gain in using the TMPALIAS/highpage approach.

2013-02-20parisc: fixes and cleanups in page cache flushing (3/4)John David Anglin
flush_cache_mm, for the non current case also uses flush_dcache_page_asm and flush_icache_page_asm which are TMPALIAS flushes. For the non current case, the algorithm used by get_ptep is derived from the vmalloc_to_page implementation in vmalloc.c. It is essentially a generic page table lookup. The other alternative was to duplicate the lookup in entry.S. The break point for switching to a full cache flush is somewhat arbitrary. The same approach is used in flush_cache_range for non current case. In a GCC build and check, many small programs are executed and this change provided a significant performance enhancement, e.g. GCC build time was cut almost in half on a rp3440 at j4. Previously, we always flushed the entire cache. Signed-off-by: John David Anglin <dave.anglin@bell.net> Signed-off-by: Helge Deller <deller@gmx.de>
2013-02-20parisc: fixes and cleanups in page cache flushing (1/4)John David Anglin
This is the first patch in a series of 4, with which the page cache flushing of parisc will gets fixed and enhanced. This even fixes the nasty "minifail" bug (http://wiki.parisc-linux.org/TestCases?highlight=%28minifail%29) which prevented parisc to stay an official debian port. Basically the flush in copy_user_page together with the TLB patch from commit 7139bc1579901b53db7e898789e916ee2fb52d78 is what fixes the minifail bug. This patch still uses the TMPALIAS approach. The new copy_user_page implementation calls flush_dcache_page_asm to flush the user dcache page (crucial for minifail fix) via a kernel TMPALIAS mapping. After that, it just copies the page using the kernel mapping. It does a final flush if needed. Generally it is hard to avoid doing some cache flushes using the kernel mapping (e.g., copy_to_user_page and copy_from_user_page). This patch depends on a subsequent change to pacache.S implementing clear_page_asm and copy_page_asm. These are optimized routines to clear and copy a page. The calls in clear_user_page and copy_user_page could be replaced by calls to memset and memcpy, respectively. I tested prefetch optimizations in clear_page_asm and copy_page_asm but didn't see any significant performance improvement on rp3440. I'm not sure if these are routines are significantly faster than memset and/or memcpy, but they are there for further performance evaluation.

2013-01-19[PARISC] Purge existing TLB entries in set_pte_at and ptep_set_wrprotectJohn David Anglin
This patch goes a long way toward fixing the minifail bug, and it  significantly improves the stability of SMP machines such as the rp3440.  When write  protecting a page for COW, we need to purge the existing translation.  Otherwise, the COW break doesn't occur as expected because the TLB may still have a stale entry which allows writes.

2012-10-09mm: replace vma prio_tree with an interval treeMichel Lespinasse
Implement an interval tree as a replacement for the VMA prio_tree. The algorithms are similar to lib/interval_tree.c; however that code can't be directly reused as the interval endpoints are not explicitly stored in the VMA. So instead, the common algorithm is moved into a template and the details (node type, how to get interval endpoints from the node, etc) are filled in using the C preprocessor. Once the interval tree functions are available, using them as a replacement to the VMA prio tree is a relatively simple, mechanical job.

2011-04-15[PARISC] prevent speculative re-read on cache flushJames Bottomley
According to Appendix F, the TLB is the primary arbiter of speculation. Thus, if a page has a TLB entry, it may be speculatively read into the cache. On linux, this can cause us incoherencies because if we're about to do a disk read, we call get_user_pages() to do the flush/invalidate in user space, but we still potentially have the user TLB entries, and the cache could speculate the lines back into userspace (thus causing stale data to be used). This is fixed by purging the TLB entries before we flush through the tmpalias space. Now, the only way the line could be re-speculated is if the user actually tries to touch it (which is not allowed). Signed-off-by: James Bottomley <James.Bottomley@suse.de>
2011-01-15parisc: flush pages through tmpalias spaceJames Bottomley
The kernel has an 8M tmpailas space (originally designed for copying and clearing pages but now only used for clearing). The idea is to place zeros into the cache above a physical page rather than into the physical page and flush the cache, because often the zeros end up being replaced quickly anyway. We can also use the tmpalias space for flushing a page. The difference here is that we have to do tmpalias processing in the non access data and instruction traps. The principle is the same: as long as we know the physical address and have a virtual address congruent to the real one, the flush will be effective. In order to use the tmpalias space, the icache miss path has to be enhanced to check for the alias region to make the fic instruction effective.

2010-02-20MM: Pass a PTE pointer to update_mmu_cache() rather than the PTE itselfRussell King
On VIVT ARM, when we have multiple shared mappings of the same file in the same MM, we need to ensure that we have coherency across all copies. We do this via make_coherent() by making the pages uncacheable. This used to work fine, until we allowed highmem with highpte - we now have a page table which is mapped as required, and is not available for modification via update_mmu_cache(). Ralf Beache suggested getting rid of the PTE value passed to update_mmu_cache(): On MIPS update_mmu_cache() calls __update_tlb() which walks pagetables to construct a pointer to the pte again. Passing a pte_t * is much more elegant. Maybe we might even replace the pte argument with the pte_t? Ben Herrenschmidt would also like the pte pointer for PowerPC: Passing the ptep in there is exactly what I want. I want that -instead- of the PTE value, because I have issue on some ppc cases, for I$/D$ coherency, where set_pte_at() may decide to mask out the _PAGE_EXEC. So, pass in the mapped page table pointer into update_mmu_cache(), and remove the PTE value, updating all implementations and call sites to suit.

2009-07-03parisc: ensure broadcast tlb purge runs single threadedHelge Deller
The TLB flushing functions on hppa, which causes PxTLB broadcasts on the system bus, needs to be protected by irq-safe spinlocks to avoid irq handlers to deadlock the kernel. The deadlocks only happened during I/O intensive loads and triggered pretty seldom, which is why this bug went so long unnoticed.

2007-05-21Detach sched.h from mm.hAlexey Dobriyan
First thing mm.h does is including sched.h solely for can_do_mlock() inline function which has "current" dereference inside. By dealing with can_do_mlock() mm.h can be detached from sched.h which is good. See below, why. This patch a) removes unconditional inclusion of sched.h from mm.h b) makes can_do_mlock() normal function in mm/mlock.c c) exports can_do_mlock() to not break compilation d) adds sched.h inclusions back to files that were getting it indirectly. e) adds less bloated headers to some files (asm/signal.h, jiffies.h) that were getting them indirectly Net result is: a) mm.h users would get less code to open, read, preprocess, parse, ... if they don't need sched.h b) sched.h stops being dependency for significant number of files: on x86_64 allmodconfig touching sched.h results in recompile of 4083 files, after patch it's only 3744 (-8.3%).

2006-10-04[PARISC] parisc specific kmap API implementation for pa8800James Bottomley
This patch fixes the pa8800 at a gross level (there are still other subtle incoherency issues which can still cause crashes and HPMCs). What it does is try to force eject inequivalent aliases before they become visible to the L2 cache (which is where we get the incoherence problems). A new function (parisc_requires_coherency) is introduced in asm/processor.h to identify the pa8x00 processors (8800 and 8900) which have the issue.

We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it.
