2013-02-27hlist: drop the node parameter from iteratorsSasha Levin
I'm not sure why, but the hlist for each entry iterators were conceived list_for_each_entry(pos, head, member) The hlist ones were greedy and wanted an extra parameter: hlist_for_each_entry(tpos, pos, head, member) Why did they need an extra pos parameter? I'm not quite sure. Not only they don't really need it, it also prevents the iterator from looking exactly like the list iterator, which is unfortunate. Besides the semantic patch, there was some manual work required: - Fix up the actual hlist iterators in linux/list.h - Fix up the declaration of other iterators based on the hlist ones. - A very small amount of places were using the 'node' parameter, this was modified to use 'obj->member' instead. - Coccinelle didn't handle the hlist_for_each_entry_safe iterator properly, so those had to be fixed up manually. The semantic patch which is mostly the work of Peter Senna Tschudin is here: @@ iterator name hlist_for_each_entry, hlist_for_each_entry_continue, hlist_for_each_entry_from, hlist_for_each_entry_rcu, hlist_for_each_entry_rcu_bh, hlist_for_each_entry_continue_rcu_bh, for_each_busy_worker, ax25_uid_for_each, ax25_for_each, inet_bind_bucket_for_each, sctp_for_each_hentry, sk_for_each, sk_for_each_rcu, sk_for_each_from, sk_for_each_safe, sk_for_each_bound, hlist_for_each_entry_safe, hlist_for_each_entry_continue_rcu, nr_neigh_for_each, nr_neigh_for_each_safe, nr_node_for_each, nr_node_for_each_safe, for_each_gfn_indirect_valid_sp, for_each_gfn_sp, for_each_host; type T; expression a,c,d,e; identifier b; statement S; @@ -T b; <+... when != b ( hlist_for_each_entry(a, - b, c, d) S | hlist_for_each_entry_continue(a, - b, c) S | hlist_for_each_entry_from(a, - b, c) S | hlist_for_each_entry_rcu(a, - b, c, d) S | hlist_for_each_entry_rcu_bh(a, - b, c, d) S | hlist_for_each_entry_continue_rcu_bh(a, - b, c) S | for_each_busy_worker(a, c, - b, d) S | ax25_uid_for_each(a, - b, c) S | ax25_for_each(a, - b, c) S | inet_bind_bucket_for_each(a, - b, c) S | sctp_for_each_hentry(a, - b, c) S | sk_for_each(a, - b, c) S | sk_for_each_rcu(a, - b, c) S | sk_for_each_from -(a, b) +(a) S + sk_for_each_from(a) S | sk_for_each_safe(a, - b, c, d) S | sk_for_each_bound(a, - b, c) S | hlist_for_each_entry_safe(a, - b, c, d, e) S | hlist_for_each_entry_continue_rcu(a, - b, c) S | nr_neigh_for_each(a, - b, c) S | nr_neigh_for_each_safe(a, - b, c, d) S | nr_node_for_each(a, - b, c) S | nr_node_for_each_safe(a, - b, c, d) S | - for_each_gfn_sp(a, c, d, b) S + for_each_gfn_sp(a, c, d) S | - for_each_gfn_indirect_valid_sp(a, c, d, b) S + for_each_gfn_indirect_valid_sp(a, c, d) S | for_each_host(a, - b, c) S | for_each_host_safe(a, - b, c, d) S | for_each_mesh_entry(a, - b, c, d) S ) ...+> [akpm@linux-foundation.org: drop bogus change from net/ipv4/raw.c] [akpm@linux-foundation.org: drop bogus hunk from net/ipv6/raw.c] [akpm@linux-foundation.org: checkpatch fixes] [akpm@linux-foundation.org: fix warnings] [akpm@linux-foudnation.org: redo intrusive kvm changes] Tested-by: Peter Senna Tschudin <peter.senna@gmail.com> Acked-by: Paul E.

2013-02-23mm: make do_mmap_pgoff return populate as a size in bytes, not as a boolMichel Lespinasse
do_mmap_pgoff() rounds up the desired size to the next PAGE_SIZE multiple, however there was no equivalent code in mm_populate(), which caused issues. This could be fixed by introduced the same rounding in mm_populate(), however I think it's preferable to make do_mmap_pgoff() return populate as a size rather than as a boolean, so we don't have to duplicate the size rounding logic in mm_populate().

2013-02-23mm: introduce mm_populate() for populating new vmasMichel Lespinasse
When creating new mappings using the MAP_POPULATE / MAP_LOCKED flags (or with MCL_FUTURE in effect), we want to populate the pages within the newly created vmas. This may take a while as we may have to read pages from disk, so ideally we want to do this outside of the write-locked mmap_sem region. This change introduces mm_populate(), which is used to defer populating such mappings until after the mmap_sem write lock has been released. This is implemented as a generalization of the former do_mlock_pages(), which accomplished the same task but was using during mlock() / mlockall().

A cleanup of rw_copy_check_uvector and compat_rw_copy_check_uvector after changes made to support CMA in an earlier patch. Rather than having an additional check_access parameter to these functions, the first paramater type is overloaded to allow the caller to specify CHECK_IOVEC_ONLY which means check that the contents of the iovec are valid, but do not check the memory that they point to. This is used by process_vm_readv/writev where we need to validate that a iovec passed to the syscall is valid but do not want to check the memory that it points to at this point because it refers to an address space in another process.

2012-05-21vfs: make AIO use the proper rw_verify_area() area helpersLinus Torvalds
We had for some reason overlooked the AIO interface, and it didn't use the proper rw_verify_area() helper function that checks (for example) mandatory locking on the file, and that the size of the access doesn't cause us to overflow the provided offset limits etc. Instead, AIO did just the security_file_permission() thing (that rw_verify_area() also does) directly. This fixes it to do all the proper helper functions, which not only means that now mandatory file locking works with AIO too, we can actually remove lines of code.

2012-03-09aio: fix the "too late munmap()" raceAl Viro
Current code has put_ioctx() called asynchronously from aio_fput_routine(); that's done *after* we have killed the request that used to pin ioctx, so there's nothing to stop io_destroy() waiting in wait_for_all_aios() from progressing. As the result, we can end up with async call of put_ioctx() being the last one and possibly happening during exit_mmap() or elf_core_dump(), neither of which expects stray munmap() being done to them... We do need to prevent _freeing_ ioctx until aio_fput_routine() is done with that, but that's all we care about - neither io_destroy() nor exit_aio() will progress past wait_for_all_aios() until aio_fput_routine() does really_put_req(), so the ioctx teardown won't be done until then and we don't care about the contents of ioctx past that point. Since actual freeing of these suckers is RCU-delayed, we don't need to bump ioctx refcount when request goes into list for async removal. All we need is rcu_read_lock held just over the ->ctx_lock-protected area in aio_fput_routine().

It will opportunistically allocate kiocbs, and then trim back the list of iocbs when there is not enough room in the completion ring to hold all of the events. In the case above, what happens is that the pruning back of events ends up freeing up the last active request and the context is marked as dead, so it is thus responsible for waking up waiters.

2012-01-13Unused iocbs in a batch should not be accounted as active.Gleb Natapov
Since commit 080d676de095 ("aio: allocate kiocbs in batches") iocbs are allocated in a batch during processing of first iocbs. All iocbs in a batch are automatically added to ctx->active_reqs list and accounted in ctx->reqs_active. If one (not the last one) of iocbs submitted by an user fails, further iocbs are not processed, but they are still present in ctx->active_reqs and accounted in ctx->reqs_active. This causes process to stuck in a D state in wait_for_all_aios() on exit since ctx->reqs_active will never go down to zero. Furthermore since kiocb_batch_free() frees iocb without removing it from active_reqs list the list become corrupted which may cause oops. Fix this by removing iocb from ctx->active_reqs and updating ctx->reqs_active in kiocb_batch_free().

2011-11-02aio: allocate kiocbs in batchesJeff Moyer
In testing aio on a fast storage device, I found that the context lock takes up a fair amount of cpu time in the I/O submission path. The reason is that we take it for every I/O submitted (see __aio_get_req). Since we know how many I/Os are passed to io_submit, we can preallocate the kiocbs in batches, reducing the number of times we take and release the lock. In my testing, I was able to reduce the amount of time spent in _raw_spin_lock_irq by .56% (average of 3 runs). The command I used to test this was: aio-stress -O -o 2 -o 3 -r 8 -d 128 -b 32 -i 32 -s 16384 <dev> I also tested the patch with various numbers of events passed to io_submit, and I ran the xfstests aio group of tests to ensure I didn't break anything.

2011-10-31Cross Memory AttachChristopher Yeoh
The basic idea behind cross memory attach is to allow MPI programs doing intra-node communication to do a single copy of the message rather than a double copy of the message via shared memory. The following patch attempts to achieve this by allowing a destination process, given an address and size from a source process, to copy memory directly from the source process into its own address space via a system call. There is also a symmetrical ability to copy from the current process's address space into a destination process's address space. - Use of /proc/pid/mem has been considered, but there are issues with using it: - Does not allow for specifying iovecs for both src and dest, assuming preadv or pwritev was implemented either the area read from or written to would need to be contiguous. - Currently mem_read allows only processes who are currently ptrace'ing the target and are still able to ptrace the target to read from the target. This check could possibly be moved to the open call, but its not clear exactly what race this restriction is stopping (reason appears to have been lost) - Having to send the fd of /proc/self/mem via SCM_RIGHTS on unix domain socket is a bit ugly from a userspace point of view, especially when you may have hundreds if not (eventually) thousands of processes that all need to do this with each other - Doesn't allow for some future use of the interface we would like to consider adding in the future (see below) - Interestingly reading from /proc/pid/mem currently actually involves two copies! (But this could be fixed pretty easily) As mentioned previously use of vmsplice instead was considered, but has problems. Since you need the reader and writer working co-operatively if the pipe is not drained then you block. Which requires some wrapping to do non blocking on the send side or polling on the receive. In all to all communication it requires ordering otherwise you can deadlock. And in the example of many MPI tasks writing to one MPI task vmsplice serialises the copying. There are some cases of MPI collectives where even a single copy interface does not get us the performance gain we could. For example in an MPI_Reduce rather than copy the data from the source we would like to instead use it directly in a mathops (say the reduce is doing a sum) as this would save us doing a copy. We don't need to keep a copy of the data from the source. I haven't implemented this, but I think this interface could in the future do all this through the use of the flags - eg could specify the math operation and type and the kernel rather than just copying the data would apply the specified operation between the source and destination and store it in the destination. Although we don't have a "second user" of the interface (though I've had some nibbles from people who may be interested in using it for intra process messaging which is not MPI). This interface is something which hardware vendors are already doing for their custom drivers to implement fast local communication. And so in addition to this being useful for OpenMPI it would mean the driver maintainers don't have to fix things up when the mm changes. There was some discussion about how much faster a true zero copy would go. Here's a link back to the email with some testing I did on that: http://marc.info/?l=linux-mm&m=130105930902915&w=2 There is a basic man page for the proposed interface here: http://ozlabs.org/~cyeoh/cma/process_vm_readv.txt This has been implemented for x86 and powerpc, other architecture should mainly (I think) just need to add syscall numbers for the process_vm_readv and process_vm_writev. There are 32 bit compatibility versions for 64-bit kernels. For arch maintainers there are some simple tests to be able to quickly verify that the syscalls are working correctly here: http://ozlabs.org/~cyeoh/cma/cma-test-20110718.tgz Signed-off-by: Chris Yeoh <yeohc@au1.ibm.com> Cc: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Cc: "H.

2011-02-25aio: fix race between io_destroy() and io_submit()Jan Kara
A race can occur when io_submit() races with io_destroy(): CPU1 CPU2 io_submit() do_io_submit() ... ctx = lookup_ioctx(ctx_id); io_destroy() Now do_io_submit() holds the last reference to ctx. ... queue new AIO put_ioctx(ctx) - frees ctx with active AIOs We solve this issue by checking whether ctx is being destroyed in AIO submission path after adding new AIO to ctx. Then we are guaranteed that either io_destroy() waits for new AIO or we see that ctx is being destroyed and bail out.

2011-01-26fs/aio: aio_wq isn't used in memory reclaim pathTejun Heo
aio_wq isn't used during memory reclaim. Convert to alloc_workqueue() without WQ_MEM_RECLAIM. It's possible to use system_wq but given that the number of work items is determined from userland and the work item may block, enforcing strict concurrency limit would be a good idea. Also, move fput_work to system_wq so that aio_wq is used soley to throttle the max concurrency of aio work items and fput_work doesn't interact with other work items.

2010-10-25aio: bump i_count instead of using igrabChris Mason
The aio batching code is using igrab to get an extra reference on the inode so it can safely batch. igrab will go ahead and take the global inode spinlock, which can be a bottleneck on large machines doing lots of AIO. In this case, igrab isn't required because we already have a reference on the file handle. It is safe to just bump the i_count directly on the inode. Benchmarking shows this patch brings IOP/s on tons of flash up by about 2.5X. Signed-off-by: Chris Mason <chris.mason@oracle.com>
2010-09-22aio: do not return ERESTARTSYS as a result of AIOJan Kara
OCFS2 can return ERESTARTSYS from its write function when the process is signalled while waiting for a cluster lock (and the filesystem is mounted with intr mount option). Generally, it seems reasonable to allow filesystems to return this error code from its IO functions. As we must not leak ERESTARTSYS (and similar error codes) to userspace as a result of an AIO operation, we have to properly convert it to EINTR inside AIO code (restarting the syscall isn't really an option because other AIO could have been already submitted by the same io_submit syscall).

2010-09-14aio: check for multiplication overflow in do_io_submitJeff Moyer
Tavis Ormandy pointed out that do_io_submit does not do proper bounds checking on the passed-in iocb array:        if (unlikely(nr < 0))                return -EINVAL;        if (unlikely(!access_ok(VERIFY_READ, iocbpp, (nr*sizeof(iocbpp)))))                return -EFAULT;                      ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ The attached patch checks for overflow, and if it is detected, the number of iocbs submitted is scaled down to a number that will fit in the long.  This is an ok thing to do, as sys_io_submit is documented as returning the number of iocbs submitted, so callers should handle a return value of less than the 'nr' argument passed in.

2010-05-27get rid of the magic around f_count in aioAl Viro
__aio_put_req() plays sick games with file refcount. What it wants is fput() from atomic context; it's almost always done with f_count > 1, so they only have to deal with delayed work in rare cases when their reference happens to be the last one. Current code decrements f_count and if it hasn't hit 0, everything is fine. Otherwise it keeps a pointer to struct file (with zero f_count!) around and has delayed work do __fput() on it. Better way to do it: use atomic_long_add_unless( , -1, 1) instead of !atomic_long_dec_and_test(). IOW, decrement it only if it's not the last reference, leave refcount alone if it was. And use normal fput() in delayed work. I've made that atomic_long_add_unless call a new helper - fput_atomic(). Drops a reference to file if it's safe to do in atomic (i.e. if that's not the last one), tells if it had been able to do that. aio.c converted to it, __fput() use is gone. req->ki_file *always* contributes to refcount now. And __fput() became static. Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>
2010-05-27aio: fix the compat vectored operationsJeff Moyer
The aio compat code was not converting the struct iovecs from 32bit to 64bit pointers, causing either EINVAL to be returned from io_getevents, or EFAULT as the result of the I/O. This patch passes a compat flag to io_submit to signal that pointer conversion is necessary for a given iocb array. A variant of this was tested by Michael Tokarev. I have also updated the libaio test harness to exercise this code path with good success. Further, I grabbed a copy of ltp and ran the testcases/kernel/syscall/readv and writev tests there (compiled with -m32 on my 64bit system). All seems happy, but extra eyes on this would be welcome.
