2013-04-30workqueue: include workqueue info when printing debug dump of a worker taskTejun Heo
One of the problems that arise when converting dedicated custom threadpool to workqueue is that the shared worker pool used by workqueue anonimizes each worker making it more difficult to identify what the worker was doing on which target from the output of sysrq-t or debug dump from oops, BUG() and friends. This patch implements set_worker_desc() which can be called from any workqueue work function to set its description. When the worker task is dumped for whatever reason - sysrq-t, WARN, BUG, oops, lockdep assertion and so on - the description will be printed out together with the workqueue name and the worker function pointer. The printing side is implemented by print_worker_info() which is called from functions in task dump paths - sched_show_task() and dump_stack_print_info(). print_worker_info() can be safely called on any task in any state as long as the task struct itself is accessible. It uses probe_*() functions to access worker fields. It may print garbage if something went very wrong, but it wouldn't cause (another) oops. The description is currently limited to 24bytes including the terminating \0. worker->desc_valid and workder->desc[] are added and the 64 bytes marker which was already incorrect before adding the new fields is moved to the correct position. Here's an example dump with writeback updated to set the bdi name as worker desc.

2013-04-30dump_stack: unify debug information printed by show_regs()Tejun Heo
show_regs() is inherently arch-dependent but it does make sense to print generic debug information and some archs already do albeit in slightly different forms. This patch introduces a generic function to print debug information from show_regs() so that different archs print out the same information and it's much easier to modify what's printed. show_regs_print_info() prints out the same debug info as dump_stack() does plus task and thread_info pointers. * Archs which didn't print debug info now do. alpha, arc, blackfin, c6x, cris, frv, h8300, hexagon, ia64, m32r, metag, microblaze, mn10300, openrisc, parisc, score, sh64, sparc, um, xtensa * Already prints debug info. Replaced with show_regs_print_info(). The printed information is superset of what used to be there. arm, arm64, avr32, mips, powerpc, sh32, tile, unicore32, x86 * s390 is special in that it used to print arch-specific information along with generic debug info. Heiko and Martin think that the arch-specific extra isn't worth keeping s390 specfic implementation. Converted to use the generic version. Note that now all archs print the debug info before actual register dumps. An example BUG() dump follows. kernel BUG at /work/os/work/kernel/workqueue.c:4841! invalid opcode: 0000 [#1] PREEMPT SMP DEBUG_PAGEALLOC Modules linked in: CPU: 0 PID: 1 Comm: swapper/0 Not tainted 3.9.0-rc1-work+ #7 Hardware name: empty empty/S3992, BIOS 080011 10/26/2007 task: ffff88007c85e040 ti: ffff88007c860000 task.ti: ffff88007c860000 RIP: 0010:[<ffffffff8234a07e>] [<ffffffff8234a07e>] init_workqueues+0x4/0x6 RSP: 0000:ffff88007c861ec8 EFLAGS: 00010246 RAX: ffff88007c861fd8 RBX: ffffffff824466a8 RCX: 0000000000000001 RDX: 0000000000000046 RSI: 0000000000000001 RDI: ffffffff8234a07a RBP: ffff88007c861ec8 R08: 0000000000000000 R09: 0000000000000000 R10: 0000000000000001 R11: 0000000000000000 R12: ffffffff8234a07a R13: 0000000000000000 R14: 0000000000000000 R15: 0000000000000000 FS: 0000000000000000(0000) GS:ffff88007dc00000(0000) knlGS:0000000000000000 CS: 0010 DS: 0000 ES: 0000 CR0: 000000008005003b CR2: ffff88015f7ff000 CR3: 00000000021f1000 CR4: 00000000000007f0 DR0: 0000000000000000 DR1: 0000000000000000 DR2: 0000000000000000 DR3: 0000000000000000 DR6: 00000000ffff0ff0 DR7: 0000000000000400 Stack: ffff88007c861ef8 ffffffff81000312 ffffffff824466a8 ffff88007c85e650 0000000000000003 0000000000000000 ffff88007c861f38 ffffffff82335e5d ffff88007c862080 ffffffff8223d8c0 ffff88007c862080 ffffffff81c47760 Call Trace: [<ffffffff81000312>] do_one_initcall+0x122/0x170 [<ffffffff82335e5d>] kernel_init_freeable+0x9b/0x1c8 [<ffffffff81c47760>] ? rest_init+0x140/0x140 [<ffffffff81c4776e>] kernel_init+0xe/0xf0 [<ffffffff81c6be9c>] ret_from_fork+0x7c/0xb0 [<ffffffff81c47760>] ? rest_init+0x140/0x140 ... v2: Typo fix in x86-32. v3: CPU number dropped from show_regs_print_info() as dump_stack_print_info() has been updated to print it. s390 specific implementation dropped as requested by s390 maintainers.

2013-04-30dump_stack: implement arch-specific hardware description in task dumpsTejun Heo
x86 and ia64 can acquire extra hardware identification information from DMI and print it along with task dumps; however, the usage isn't consistent. * x86 show_regs() collects vendor, product and board strings and print them out with PID, comm and utsname. Some of the information is printed again later in the same dump. * warn_slowpath_common() explicitly accesses the DMI board and prints it out with "Hardware name:" label. This applies to both x86 and ia64 but is irrelevant on all other archs. * ia64 doesn't show DMI information on other non-WARN dumps. This patch introduces arch-specific hardware description used by dump_stack(). It can be set by calling dump_stack_set_arch_desc() during boot and, if exists, printed out in a separate line with "Hardware name:" label. dmi_set_dump_stack_arch_desc() is added which sets arch-specific description from DMI data. It uses dmi_ids_string[] which is set from dmi_present() used for DMI debug message. It is superset of the information x86 show_regs() is using. The function is called from x86 and ia64 boot code right after dmi_scan_machine(). This makes the explicit DMI handling in warn_slowpath_common() unnecessary. Removed. show_regs() isn't yet converted to use generic debug information printing and this patch doesn't remove the duplicate DMI handling in x86 show_regs(). The next patch will unify show_regs() handling and remove the duplication. An example WARN dump follows.

2013-04-30dump_stack: consolidate dump_stack() implementations and unify their behaviorsTejun Heo
Both dump_stack() and show_stack() are currently implemented by each architecture. show_stack(NULL, NULL) dumps the backtrace for the current task as does dump_stack(). On some archs, dump_stack() prints extra information - pid, utsname and so on - in addition to the backtrace while the two are identical on other archs. The usages in arch-independent code of the two functions indicate show_stack(NULL, NULL) should print out bare backtrace while dump_stack() is used for debugging purposes when something went wrong, so it does make sense to print additional information on the task which triggered dump_stack(). There's no reason to require archs to implement two separate but mostly identical functions. It leads to unnecessary subtle information. This patch expands the dummy fallback dump_stack() implementation in lib/dump_stack.c such that it prints out debug information (taken from x86) and invokes show_stack(NULL, NULL) and drops arch-specific dump_stack() implementations in all archs except blackfin. Blackfin's dump_stack() does something wonky that I don't understand. Debug information can be printed separately by calling dump_stack_print_info() so that arch-specific dump_stack() implementation can still emit the same debug information. This is used in blackfin. This patch brings the following behavior changes. * On some archs, an extra level in backtrace for show_stack() could be printed. This is because the top frame was determined in dump_stack() on those archs while generic dump_stack() can't do that reliably. It can be compensated by inlining dump_stack() but not sure whether that'd be necessary. * Most archs didn't use to print debug info on dump_stack(). They do now. An example WARN dump follows.

This loses %ksp from the debug message which the maintainers think isn't important enough to keep the s390-specific dump_stack() implementation. dump_stack_print_info() is moved to kernel/printk.c from lib/dump_stack.c. Because linkage is per objecct file, dump_stack_print_info() living in the same lib file as generic dump_stack() means that archs which implement custom dump_stack() - at this point, only blackfin - can't use dump_stack_print_info() as that will bring in the generic version of dump_stack() too. v1 The v1 patch broke build on blackfin due to this issue.

wake_up_klogd() is useless when CONFIG_PRINTK=n because neither printk() nor printk_sched() are in use and there are actually no waiter on log_wait waitqueue. It should be a stub in this case for users like bust_spinlocks(). Otherwise this results in this warning when CONFIG_PRINTK=n and CONFIG_IRQ_WORK=n: kernel/built-in.o In function `wake_up_klogd': (.text.wake_up_klogd+0xb4): undefined reference to `irq_work_queue' To fix this, provide an off-case for wake_up_klogd() when CONFIG_PRINTK=n.

2013-01-04printk: fix incorrect length from print_time() when seconds > 99999Roland Dreier
print_prefix() passes a NULL buf to print_time() to get the length of the time prefix; when printk times are enabled, the current code just returns the constant 15, which matches the format "[%5lu.%06lu] " used to print the time value. However, this is obviously incorrect when the whole seconds part of the time gets beyond 5 digits (100000 seconds is a bit more than a day of uptime). The simple fix is to use snprintf(NULL, 0, ...) to calculate the actual length of the time prefix. This could be micro-optimized but it seems better to have simpler, more readable code here. The bug leads to the syslog system call miscomputing which messages fit into the userspace buffer. If there are enough messages to fill log_buf_len and some have a timestamp >= 100000, dmesg may fail with: # dmesg klogctl: Bad address When this happens, strace shows that the failure is indeed EFAULT due to the kernel mistakenly accessing past the end of dmesg's buffer, since dmesg asks the kernel how big a buffer it needs, allocates a bit more, and then gets an error when it asks the kernel to fill it: syslog(0xa, 0, 0) = 1048576 mmap(NULL, 1052672, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_ANONYMOUS, -1, 0) = 0x7fa4d25d2000 syslog(0x3, 0x7fa4d25d2010, 0x100008) = -1 EFAULT (Bad address) As far as I can see, the bug has been there as long as print_time(), which comes from commit 084681d14e42 ("printk: flush continuation lines immediately to console") in 3.5-rc5.

2012-11-18printk: Wake up klogd using irq_workFrederic Weisbecker
klogd is woken up asynchronously from the tick in order to do it safely. However if printk is called when the tick is stopped, the reader won't be woken up until the next interrupt, which might not fire for a while. As a result, the user may miss some message. To fix this, lets implement the printk tick using a lazy irq work. This subsystem takes care of the timer tick state and can fix up accordingly.

2012-10-23console: use might_sleep in console_lockDaniel Vetter
Instead of BUG_ON(in_interrupt()), since that doesn't check for all the newfangled stuff like preempt. Note that this is valid since the console_sem is essentially used like a real mutex with only two twists: - we allow trylock from hardirq context - across suspend/resume we lock the logical console_lock, but drop the semaphore protecting the locking state. Now that doesn't guarantee that no one is playing tricks in single-thread atomic contexts at suspend/resume/boot time, but - I couldn't find anything suspicious with some grepping, - might_sleep shouldn't die, - and I think the upside of catching more potential issues is worth the risk of getting a might_sleep backtrace that would have been save (and then dealing with that fallout).

2012-10-22console: implement lockdep support for console_lockDaniel Vetter
Dave Airlie recently discovered a locking bug in the fbcon layer, where a timer_del_sync (for the blinking cursor) deadlocks with the timer itself, since both (want to) hold the console_lock: https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/8/21/36 Unfortunately the console_lock isn't a plain mutex and hence has no lockdep support. Which resulted in a few days wasted of tracking down this bug (complicated by the fact that printk doesn't show anything when the console is locked) instead of noticing the bug much earlier with the lockdep splat. Hence I've figured I need to fix that for the next deadlock involving console_lock - and with kms/drm growing ever more complex locking that'll eventually happen. Now the console_lock has rather funky semantics, so after a quick irc discussion with Thomas Gleixner and Dave Airlie I've quickly ditched the original idead of switching to a real mutex (since it won't work) and instead opted to annotate the console_lock with lockdep information manually. There are a few special cases: - The console_lock state is protected by the console_sem, and usually grabbed/dropped at _lock/_unlock time. But the suspend/resume code drops the semaphore without dropping the console_lock (see suspend_console/resume_console). But since the same thread that did the suspend will do the resume, we don't need to fix up anything. - In the printk code there's a special trylock, only used to kick off the logbuffer printk'ing in console_unlock. But all that happens while lockdep is disable (since printk does a few other evil tricks). So no issue there, either. - The console_lock can also be acquired form irq context (but only with a trylock). lockdep already handles that. This all leaves us with annotating the normal console_lock, _unlock and _trylock functions. And yes, it works - simply unloading a drm kms driver resulted in lockdep complaining about the deadlock in fbcon_deinit: ====================================================== [ INFO: possible circular locking dependency detected ] 3.6.0-rc2+ #552 Not tainted ------------------------------------------------------- kms-reload/3577 is trying to acquire lock: ((&info->queue)){+.+...}, at: [<ffffffff81058c70>] wait_on_work+0x0/0xa7 but task is already holding lock: (console_lock){+.+.+.}, at: [<ffffffff81264686>] bind_con_driver+0x38/0x263 which lock already depends on the new lock. the existing dependency chain (in reverse order) is: -> #1 (console_lock){+.+.+.}: [<ffffffff81087440>] lock_acquire+0x95/0x105 [<ffffffff81040190>] console_lock+0x59/0x5b [<ffffffff81209cb6>] fb_flashcursor+0x2e/0x12c [<ffffffff81057c3e>] process_one_work+0x1d9/0x3b4 [<ffffffff810584a2>] worker_thread+0x1a7/0x24b [<ffffffff8105ca29>] kthread+0x7f/0x87 [<ffffffff813b1204>] kernel_thread_helper+0x4/0x10 -> #0 ((&info->queue)){+.+...}: [<ffffffff81086cb3>] __lock_acquire+0x999/0xcf6 [<ffffffff81087440>] lock_acquire+0x95/0x105 [<ffffffff81058cab>] wait_on_work+0x3b/0xa7 [<ffffffff81058dd6>] __cancel_work_timer+0xbf/0x102 [<ffffffff81058e33>] cancel_work_sync+0xb/0xd [<ffffffff8120a3b3>] fbcon_deinit+0x11c/0x1dc [<ffffffff81264793>] bind_con_driver+0x145/0x263 [<ffffffff81264a45>] unbind_con_driver+0x14f/0x195 [<ffffffff8126540c>] store_bind+0x1ad/0x1c1 [<ffffffff8127cbb7>] dev_attr_store+0x13/0x1f [<ffffffff8116d884>] sysfs_write_file+0xe9/0x121 [<ffffffff811145b2>] vfs_write+0x9b/0xfd [<ffffffff811147b7>] sys_write+0x3e/0x6b [<ffffffff813b0039>] system_call_fastpath+0x16/0x1b other info that might help us debug this: Possible unsafe locking scenario: CPU0 CPU1 ---- ---- lock(console_lock); lock((&info->queue)); lock(console_lock); lock((&info->queue)); *** DEADLOCK *** v2: Mark the lockdep_map static, noticed by Jani Nikula.

Fragments of continuation lines are flushed to the console immediately. In case the console is locked, the fragment must be queued up in the cont buffer. If the the console is busy and the continuation line is complete, but no part of it was written to the console up to this point, we can just store the entire line as a regular record and free the buffer earlier. If the console is busy and earlier messages are already queued up, we should not flush the fragments of continuation lines, but store them after the queued up messages, to ensure the proper ordering. This keeps the console output better readable in case printk()s race against each other, or we receive over-long continuation lines we need to flush.

2012-07-06kmsg: properly handle concurrent non-blocking read() from /proc/kmsgKay Sievers
The /proc/kmsg read() interface is internally simply wired up to a sequence of syslog() syscalls, which might are racy between their checks and actions, regarding concurrency. In the (very uncommon) case of concurrent readers of /dev/kmsg, relying on usual O_NONBLOCK behavior, the recently introduced mutex might block an O_NONBLOCK reader in read(), when poll() returns for it, but another process has already read the data in the meantime. We've seen that while running artificial test setups and tools that "fight" about /proc/kmsg data. This restores the original /proc/kmsg behavior, where in case of concurrent read()s, poll() might wake up but the read() syscall will just return 0 to the caller, while another process has "stolen" the data. This is in the general case not the expected behavior, but it is the exact same one, that can easily be triggered with a 3.4 kernel, and some tools might just rely on it. The mutex is not needed, the original integrity issue which introduced it, is in the meantime covered by: "fill buffer with more than a single message for SYSLOG_ACTION_READ" 116e90b23f74d303e8d607c7a7d54f60f14ab9f2 Cc: Yuanhan Liu <yuanhan.liu@linux.intel.com> Acked-by: Jan Beulich <jbeulich@suse.com> Signed-off-by: Kay Sievers <kay@vrfy.org> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org>

Continuation lines are buffered internally, intended to merge the chunked printk()s into a single record, and to isolate potentially racy continuation users from usual terminated line users. This though, has the effect that partial lines are not printed to the console in the moment they are emitted. In case the kernel crashes in the meantime, the potentially interesting printed information would never reach the consoles. Here we share the continuation buffer with the console copy logic, and partial lines are always immediately flushed to the available consoles. They are still buffered internally to improve the readability and integrity of the messages and minimize the amount of needed record headers to store.

2012-06-26syslog: fill buffer with more than a single message for SYSLOG_ACTION_READJan Beulich
The recent changes to the printk buffer management resulted in SYSLOG_ACTION_READ to only return a single message, whereas previously the buffer would get filled as much as possible. As, when too small to fit everything, filling it to the last byte would be pretty ugly with the new code, the patch arranges for as many messages as possible to get returned in a single invocation. User space tools in at least all SLES versions depend on the old behavior. This at once addresses the issue attempted to get fixed with commit b56a39ac263e5b8cafedd551a49c2105e68b98c2 ("printk: return -EINVAL if the message len is bigger than the buf size"), and since that commit widened the possibility for losing a message altogether, the patch here assumes that this other commit would get reverted first (otherwise the patch here won't apply). Furthermore, this patch also addresses the problem dealt with in commit 4a77a5a06ec66ed05199b301e7c25f42f979afdc ("printk: use mutex lock to stop syslog_seq from going wild"), so I'd recommend reverting that one too (albeit there's no direct collision between the two).

2012-06-16printk: use mutex lock to stop syslog_seq from going wildYuanhan Liu
Although syslog_seq and log_next_seq stuff are protected by logbuf_lock spin log, it's not enough. Say we have two processes A and B, and let syslog_seq = N, while log_next_seq = N + 1, and the two processes both come to syslog_print at almost the same time. And No matter which process get the spin lock first, it will increase syslog_seq by one, then release spin lock; thus later, another process increase syslog_seq by one again. In this case, syslog_seq is bigger than syslog_next_seq. And latter, it would make: wait_event_interruptiable(log_wait, syslog != log_next_seq) don't wait any more even there is no new write comes. Thus it introduce a infinite loop reading. I can easily see this kind of issue by the following steps: # cat /proc/kmsg # at meantime, I don't kill rsyslog # So they are the two processes. # xinit # I added drm.debug=6 in the kernel parameter line, # so that it will produce lots of message and let that # issue happen It's 100% reproducable on my side. And my disk will be filled up by /var/log/messages in a quite short time. So, introduce a mutex_lock to stop syslog_seq from going wild just like what devkmsg_read() does.

2012-06-12printk: Fix alignment of buf causing crash on ARM EABIAndrew Lunn
Commit 7ff9554bb578ba02166071d2d487b7fc7d860d62, printk: convert byte-buffer to variable-length record buffer, causes systems using EABI to crash very early in the boot cycle. The first entry in struct log is a u64, which for EABI must be 8 byte aligned. Make use of __alignof__() so the compiler to decide the alignment, but allow it to be overridden using CONFIG_HAVE_EFFICIENT_UNALIGNED_ACCESS, for systems which can perform unaligned access and want to save a few bytes of space. Tested on Orion5x and Kirkwood.
