2007-10-05Remove unnecessary cast in prefetch()Serge Belyshev
It is ok to call prefetch() function with NULL argument, as specifically commented in include/linux/prefetch.h. But in standard C, it is invalid to dereference NULL pointer (see C99 standard paragraph 4 and note #84). prefetch() has a memory reference for its argument. Newer gcc versions (4.3 and above) will use that to conclude that "x" argument is non-null and thus wreaking havok everywhere prefetch() was inlined. Fixed by removing cast and changing asm constraint. [ It seems in theory gcc 4.2 could miscompile this too; although no cases known. In 2.6.24 we should probably switch to __builtin_prefetch() instead, but this is a simpler fix for now. -- AK ] Signed-off-by: Serge Belyshev <belyshev@depni.sinp.msu.ru> Signed-off-by: Andi Kleen <ak@suse.de> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2007-09-26Revert "x86-64: Disable local APIC timer use on AMD systems with C1E"Linus Torvalds
This reverts commit e66485d747505e9d960b864fc6c37f8b2afafaf0, since Rafael Wysocki noticed that the change only works for his in -mm, not in mainline (and that both "noapictimer" _and_ "apicmaintimer" are broken on his hardware, but that's apparently not a regression, just a symptom of the same issue that causes the automatic apic timer disable to not work). It turns out that it really doesn't work correctly on x86-64, since x86-64 doesn't use the generic clock events for timers yet. Thanks to Rafal for testing, and here's the ugly details on x86-64 as per Thomas: "I just looked into the code and the logic vs. noapictimer on SMP is completely broken. On i386 the noapictimer option not only disables the local APIC timer, it also registers the CPUs for broadcasting via IPI on SMP systems. The x86-64 code uses the broadcast only when the local apic timer is active, i.e. "noapictimer" is not on the command line. This defeats the whole purpose of "noapictimer". It should be there to make boxen work, where the local APIC timer actually has a hardware problem, e.g. the nx6325. The current implementation of x86_64 only fixes the ACPI c-states related problem where the APIC timer stops in C3(2), nothing else. On nx6325 and other AMD X2 equipped systems which have the C1E enabled we run into the following: PIT keeps jiffies (and the system) running, but the local APIC timer interrupts can get out of sync due to this C1E effect. I don't think this is a critical problem, but it is wrong nevertheless. I think it's safe to revert the C1E patch and postpone the fix to the clock events conversion." On further reflection, Thomas noted: "It's even worse than I thought on the first check: "noapictimer" on the command line of an SMP box prevents _ONLY_ the boot CPU apic timer from being used. But the secondary CPU is still unconditionally setting up the APIC timer and uses the non calibrated variable calibration_result, which is of course 0, to setup the APIC timer. Wreckage guaranteed." so we'll just have to wait for the x86 merge to hopefully fix this up for x86-64. Tested-and-requested-by: Rafael J.

2007-09-26x86-64: Disable local APIC timer use on AMD systems with C1EThomas Gleixner
commit 3556ddfa9284a86a59a9b78fe5894430f6ab4eef titled [PATCH] x86-64: Disable local APIC timer use on AMD systems with C1E solves a problem with AMD dual core laptops e.g. HP nx6325 (Turion 64 X2) with C1E enabled: When both cores go into idle at the same time, then the system switches into C1E state, which is basically the same as C3. This stops the local apic timer. This was debugged right after the dyntick merge on i386 and despite the patch title it fixes only the 32 bit path. x86_64 is still missing this fix. It seems that mainline is not really affected by this issue, as the PIT is running and keeps jiffies incrementing, but that's just waiting for trouble. -mm suffers from this problem due to the x86_64 high resolution timer patches. This is a quick and dirty port of the i386 code to x86_64. I spent quite a time with Rafael to debug the -mm / hrt wreckage until someone pointed us to this. I really had forgotten that we debugged this half a year ago already. Sigh, is it just me or is there something yelling arch/x86 into my ear?

2007-08-11finish i386 and x86-64 sysdata conversionMuli Ben-Yehuda
This patch finishes the i386 and x86-64 ->sysdata conversion and hopefully also fixes Riku's and Andy's observed bugs. It is based on Yinghai Lu's and Andy Whitcroft's patches (thanks!) with some changes: - introduce pci_scan_bus_with_sysdata() and use it instead of pci_scan_bus() where appropriate. pci_scan_bus_with_sysdata() will allocate the sysdata structure and then call pci_scan_bus(). - always allocate pci_sysdata dynamically. The whole point of this sysdata work is to make it easy to do root-bus specific things (e.g., support PCI domains and IOMMU's). I dislike using a default struct pci_sysdata in some places and a dynamically allocated pci_sysdata elsewhere - the potential for someone indavertantly changing the default structure is too high. - this patch only makes the minimal changes necessary, i.e., the NUMA node is always initialized to -1. Patches to do the right thing with regards to the NUMA node can build on top of this (either add a 'node' parameter to pci_scan_bus_with_sysdata() or just update the node when it becomes known). The patch was compile tested with various configurations (e.g., NUMAQ, VISWS) and run-time tested on i386 and x86-64. Unfortunately none of my machines exhibited the bugs so caveat emptor. Andy, could you please see if this fixes the NUMA issues you've seen? Riku, does this fix "pci=noacpi" on your laptop?

2007-07-31revert "x86, serial: convert legacy COM ports to platform devices"Andrew Morton
Revert 7e92b4fc345f5b6f57585fbe5ffdb0f24d7c9b26. It broke Sébastien Dugué's machine and Jeff said (persuasively) This seems like it will break decades-long-working stuff, in favor of breaking new ground in our favorite area, "trusting the BIOS." It's just not worth it for serial ports, IMO. Serial ports are something that just shouldn't break at this late stage in the game. My new Intel platform boxes don't even have serial ports, so I question the value of messing with serial port probing even more... because... just wait a year, and your box won't have a serial port either! :) I certainly don't object to the use of platform devices (or isa_driver), but the probe change seems questionable. That's sorta analagous to rewriting the floppy driver probe routine. Sure you could do it... but why risk all that damage and go through debugging all over again? It seems clear from this report that we cannot, should not, trust BIOS for something (a) so simple and (b) that has been working for over a decade. Much discussion ensued and we've decided to have another go at all of this.

A line gets printed to the kernel log so that tools that need to check for failures can behave more uniformly between debug.show_unhandled_signals sysctl variable to 0 (or by doing echo 0 > /proc/sys/debug/exception-trace) Also, all of the lines being printed are now using printk_ratelimit() to deny the ability of DoS from a local user with a program like the following: main() { while (1) if (!fork()) *(int *)0 = 0; } This new revision also includes the fix that Andrew did which got rid of new sysctl that was added to the system in earlier versions of this. Also, 'show-unhandled-signals' sysctl has been renamed back to the old 'exception-trace' to avoid breakage of people's scripts.

2007-07-21x86_64: support poll() on /dev/mcelogTim Hockin
Background: /dev/mcelog is typically polled manually. This is less than optimal for situations where accurate accounting of MCEs is important. Calling poll() on /dev/mcelog does not work. Description: This patch adds support for poll() to /dev/mcelog. This results in immediate wakeup of user apps whenever the poller finds MCEs. Because the exception handler can not take any locks, it can not call the wakeup itself. Instead, it uses a thread_info flag (TIF_MCE_NOTIFY) which is caught at the next return from interrupt or exit from idle, calling the mce_user_notify() routine. This patch also disables the "fake panic" path of the mce_panic(), because it results in printk()s in the exception handler and crashy systems. This patch also does some small cleanup for essentially unused variables, and moves the user notification into the body of the poller, so it is only called once per poll, rather than once per CPU. Result: Applications can now poll() on /dev/mcelog. When an error is logged (whether through the poller or through an exception) the applications are woken up promptly. This should not affect any previous behaviors. If no MCEs are being logged, there is no overhead. Alternatives: I considered simply supporting poll() through the poller and not using TIF_MCE_NOTIFY at all. However, the time between an uncorrectable error happening and the user application being notified is *the*most* critical window for us. Many uncorrectable errors can be logged to the network if given a chance. I also considered doing the MCE poll directly from the idle notifier, but decided that was overkill. Testing: I used an error-injecting DIMM to create lots of correctable DRAM errors and verified that my user app is woken up in sync with the polling interval. I also used the northbridge to inject uncorrectable ECC errors, and verified (printk() to the rescue) that the notify routine is called and the user app does wake up. I built with PREEMPT on and off, and verified that my machine survives MCEs.

2007-07-21x86_64: fake pxm-to-node mapping for fake numaDavid Rientjes
For NUMA emulation, our SLIT should represent the true NUMA topology of the system but our proximity domain to node ID mapping needs to reflect the emulated state. When NUMA emulation has successfully setup fake nodes on the system, a new function, acpi_fake_nodes() is called. This function determines the proximity domain (_PXM) for each true node found on the system. It then finds which emulated nodes have been allocated on this true node as determined by its starting address. The node ID to PXM mapping is changed so that each fake node ID points to the PXM of the true node that it is located on. If the machine failed to register a SLIT, then we assume there is no special requirement for emulated node affinity so we use the default LOCAL_DISTANCE, which is newly exported to this code, as our measurement if the emulated nodes appear in the same PXM. Otherwise, we use REMOTE_DISTANCE. PXM_INVAL and NID_INVAL are also exported to the ACPI header file so that we can compare node_to_pxm() results in generic code (in this case, the SRAT code).

2007-07-21x86_64: Quicklist support for x86_64Christoph Lameter
This adds caching of pgds and puds, pmds, pte. That way we can avoid costly zeroing and initialization of special mappings in the pgd. A second quicklist is useful to separate out PGD handling. We can carry the initialized pgds over to the next process needing them. Also clean up the pgd_list handling to use regular list macros. There is no need anymore to avoid the lru field. Move the add/removal of the pgds to the pgdlist into the constructor / destructor. That way the implementation is congruent with i386.

2007-07-21x86_64: Add vDSO for x86-64 with gettimeofday/clock_gettime/getcpuAndi Kleen
This implements new vDSO for x86-64. The concept is similar to the existing vDSOs on i386 and PPC. x86-64 has had static vsyscalls before, but these are not flexible enough anymore. A vDSO is a ELF shared library supplied by the kernel that is mapped into user address space. The vDSO mapping is randomized for each process for security reasons. Doing this was needed for clock_gettime, because clock_gettime always needs a syscall fallback and having one at a fixed address would have made buffer overflow exploits too easy to write. The vdso can be disabled with vdso=0 It currently includes a new gettimeofday implemention and optimized clock_gettime(). The gettimeofday implementation is slightly faster than the one in the old vsyscall. clock_gettime is significantly faster than the syscall for CLOCK_MONOTONIC and CLOCK_REALTIME. The new calls are generally faster than the old vsyscall. Advantages over the old x86-64 vsyscalls: - Extensible - Randomized - Cleaner - Easier to virtualize (the old static address range previously causes overhead e.g. for Xen because it has to create special page tables for it) Weak points: - glibc support still to be written The VM interface is partly based on Ingo Molnar's i386 version.

2007-07-19define new percpu interface for shared dataFenghua Yu
per cpu data section contains two types of data. One set which is exclusively accessed by the local cpu and the other set which is per cpu, but also shared by remote cpus. In the current kernel, these two sets are not clearely separated out. This can potentially cause the same data cacheline shared between the two sets of data, which will result in unnecessary bouncing of the cacheline between cpus. One way to fix the problem is to cacheline align the remotely accessed per cpu data, both at the beginning and at the end. Because of the padding at both ends, this will likely cause some memory wastage and also the interface to achieve this is not clean. This patch: Moves the remotely accessed per cpu data (which is currently marked as ____cacheline_aligned_in_smp) into a different section, where all the data elements are cacheline aligned. And as such, this differentiates the local only data and remotely accessed data cleanly.

2007-07-17sys_fallocate() implementation on i386, x86_64 and powerpcAmit Arora
fallocate() is a new system call being proposed here which will allow applications to preallocate space to any file(s) in a file system. Each file system implementation that wants to use this feature will need to support an inode operation called ->fallocate(). Applications can use this feature to avoid fragmentation to certain level and thus get faster access speed. With preallocation, applications also get a guarantee of space for particular file(s) - even if later the the system becomes full. Currently, glibc provides an interface called posix_fallocate() which can be used for similar cause. Though this has the advantage of working on all file systems, but it is quite slow (since it writes zeroes to each block that has to be preallocated). Without a doubt, file systems can do this more efficiently within the kernel, by implementing the proposed fallocate() system call. It is expected that posix_fallocate() will be modified to call this new system call first and incase the kernel/filesystem does not implement it, it should fall back to the current implementation of writing zeroes to the new blocks. ToDos: 1. Implementation on other architectures (other than i386, x86_64, and ppc). Patches for s390(x) and ia64 are already available from previous posts, but it was decided that they should be added later once fallocate is in the mainline. Hence not including those patches in this take. 2. Changes to glibc, a) to support fallocate() system call b) to make posix_fallocate() and posix_fallocate64() call fallocate() Signed-off-by: Amit Arora <aarora@in.ibm.com>
