2007-10-19Storing ipcs into IDRsNadia Derbey
This patch converts casts of struct kern_ipc_perm to . struct msg_queue . struct sem_array . struct shmid_kernel into the equivalent container_of() macro. It improves code maintenance because the code need not change if kern_ipc_perm is no longer at the beginning of the containing struct.

2007-10-19ipc: store ipcs into IDRsNadia Derbey
This patch introduces ipcs storage into IDRs. The main changes are: . This ipc_ids structure is changed: the entries array is changed into a root idr structure. . The grow_ary() routine is removed: it is not needed anymore when adding an ipc structure, since we are now using the IDR facility. . The ipc_rmid() routine interface is changed: . there is no need for this routine to return the pointer passed in as argument: it is now declared as a void . since the id is now part of the kern_ipc_perm structure, no need to have it as an argument to the routine Signed-off-by: Nadia Derbey <Nadia.Derbey@bull.net> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2007-10-19Add irq protection in the percpu-counters cpu-hotplug-callback pathGautham R Shenoy
Some of the per-cpu counters and thus their locks are accessed from IRQ contexts. This can cause a deadlock if it interrupts a cpu-offline thread which is transferring a dead-cpu's counts to the global counter. Add appropriate IRQ protection in the cpu-hotplug callback path.

2007-10-19hotplug cpu: migrate a task within its cpusetCliff Wickman
When a cpu is disabled, move_task_off_dead_cpu() is called for tasks that have been running on that cpu. Currently, such a task is migrated: 1) to any cpu on the same node as the disabled cpu, which is both online and among that task's cpus_allowed 2) to any cpu which is both online and among that task's cpus_allowed It is typical of a multithreaded application running on a large NUMA system to have its tasks confined to a cpuset so as to cluster them near the memory that they share. Furthermore, it is typical to explicitly place such a task on a specific cpu in that cpuset. And in that case the task's cpus_allowed includes only a single cpu. This patch would insert a preference to migrate such a task to some cpu within its cpuset (and set its cpus_allowed to its entire cpuset). With this patch, migrate the task to: 1) to any cpu on the same node as the disabled cpu, which is both online and among that task's cpus_allowed 2) to any online cpu within the task's cpuset 3) to any cpu which is both online and among that task's cpus_allowed In order to do this, move_task_off_dead_cpu() must make a call to cpuset_cpus_allowed_locked(), a new subset of cpuset_cpus_allowed(), that will not block. (name change - per Oleg's suggestion) Calls are made to cpuset_lock() and cpuset_unlock() in migration_call() to set the cpuset mutex during the whole migrate_live_tasks() and migrate_dead_tasks() procedure.

2007-10-19Control groups: Replace "cont" with "cgrp" and other misc renamingPaul Menage
Replace "cont" with "cgrp" and other misc renaming This patch finishes some of the names that got missed in the great "task containers" -> "control groups" rename. Primarily it renames the local variable "cont" to "cgrp" in a number of places, and renames the CONT_* enum members to CGRP_*. This patch is not intended to have any effect on the generated code; the output of "objdump -d kernel/cgroup.o" is unchanged.

2007-10-19Remove unused variables from fs/proc/base.cPavel Emelyanov
When removing the explicit task_struct->pid usage I found that proc_readfd_common() and proc_pident_readdir() get this field, but do not use it at all.

2007-10-19Use helpers to obtain task pid in printks (arch code)Alexey Dobriyan
One of the easiest things to isolate is the pid printed in kernel log. There was a patch, that made this for arch-independent code, this one makes so for arch/xxx files.

2007-10-19Use helpers to obtain task pid in printksPavel Emelyanov
The task_struct->pid member is going to be deprecated, so start using the helpers (task_pid_nr/task_pid_vnr/task_pid_nr_ns) in the kernel. The first thing to start with is the pid, printed to dmesg - in this case we may safely use task_pid_nr(). Besides, printks produce more (much more) than a half of all the explicit pid usage.

2007-10-19Isolate the explicit usage of signal->pgrpPavel Emelyanov
The pgrp field is not used widely around the kernel so it is now marked as deprecated with appropriate comment. The initialization of INIT_SIGNALS is trimmed because a) they are set to 0 automatically; b) gcc cannot properly initialize two anonymous (the second one is the one with the session) unions. In this particular case to make it compile we'd have to add some field initialized right before the .pgrp. This is the same patch as the 1ec320afdc9552c92191d5f89fcd1ebe588334ca one (from Cedric), but for the pgrp field. Some progress report: We have to deprecate the pid, tgid, session and pgrp fields on struct task_struct and struct signal_struct. The session and pgrp are already deprecated. The tgid value is close to being such - the worst known usage in in fs/locks.c and audit code. The pid field deprecation is mainly blocked by numerous printk-s around the kernel that print the tsk->pid to log.

2007-10-19cpuset sched_load_balance flagPaul Jackson
Add a new per-cpuset flag called 'sched_load_balance'. When enabled in a cpuset (the default value) it tells the kernel scheduler that the scheduler should provide the normal load balancing on the CPUs in that cpuset, sometimes moving tasks from one CPU to a second CPU if the second CPU is less loaded and if that task is allowed to run there. When disabled (write "0" to the file) then it tells the kernel scheduler that load balancing is not required for the CPUs in that cpuset. Now even if this flag is disabled for some cpuset, the kernel may still have to load balance some or all the CPUs in that cpuset, if some overlapping cpuset has its sched_load_balance flag enabled. If there are some CPUs that are not in any cpuset whose sched_load_balance flag is enabled, the kernel scheduler will not load balance tasks to those CPUs. Moreover the kernel will partition the 'sched domains' (non-overlapping sets of CPUs over which load balancing is attempted) into the finest granularity partition that it can find, while still keeping any two CPUs that are in the same shed_load_balance enabled cpuset in the same element of the partition. This serves two purposes: 1) It provides a mechanism for real time isolation of some CPUs, and 2) it can be used to improve performance on systems with many CPUs by supporting configurations in which load balancing is not done across all CPUs at once, but rather only done in several smaller disjoint sets of CPUs. This mechanism replaces the earlier overloading of the per-cpuset flag 'cpu_exclusive', which overloading was removed in an earlier patch: cpuset-remove-sched-domain-hooks-from-cpusets See further the Documentation and comments in the code itself.

Since these are expanded into call to pid_nr_ns() anyway, it's OK to move the whole routine out-of-line. This is a cheap way to save ~100 bytes from vmlinux. Together with the previous two patches, it saves half-a-kilo from the vmlinux. Un-inline other (currently inlined) functions must be done with additional performance testing.

2007-10-19Uninline find_pid etc set of functionsPavel Emelyanov
The find_pid/_vpid/_pid_ns functions are used to find the struct pid by its id, depending on whic id - global or virtual - is used. The find_vpid() is a macro that pushes the current->nsproxy->pid_ns on the stack to call another function - find_pid_ns(). It turned out, that this dereference together with the push itself cause the kernel text size to grow too much. Move all these out-of-line.

2007-10-19Isolate some explicit usage of task->tgidPavel Emelyanov
With pid namespaces this field is now dangerous to use explicitly, so hide it behind the helpers. Also the pid and pgrp fields o task_struct and signal_struct are to be deprecated. Unfortunately this patch cannot be sent right now as this leads to tons of warnings, so start isolating them, and deprecate later. Actually the p->tgid == pid has to be changed to has_group_leader_pid(), but Oleg pointed out that in case of posix cpu timers this is the same, and thread_group_leader() is more preferable.

2007-10-19Uninline find_task_by_xxx set of functionsPavel Emelyanov
The find_task_by_something is a set of macros are used to find task by pid depending on what kind of pid is proposed - global or virtual one. All of them are wrappers above the most generic one - find_task_by_pid_type_ns() - and just substitute some args for it. It turned out, that dereferencing the current->nsproxy->pid_ns construction and pushing one more argument on the stack inline cause kernel text size to grow. This patch moves all this stuff out-of-line into kernel/pid.c. Together with the next patch it saves a bit less than 400 bytes from the .text section.

2007-10-19pid namespaces: changes to show virtual ids to userPavel Emelyanov
This is the largest patch in the set. Make all (I hope) the places where the pid is shown to or get from user operate on the virtual pids. The idea is: - all in-kernel data structures must store either struct pid itself or the pid's global nr, obtained with pid_nr() call; - when seeking the task from kernel code with the stored id one should use find_task_by_pid() call that works with global pids; - when showing pid's numerical value to the user the virtual one should be used, but however when one shows task's pid outside this task's namespace the global one is to be used; - when getting the pid from userspace one need to consider this as the virtual one and use appropriate task/pid-searching functions.

2007-10-19pid namespaces: allow signalling cgroup-initSukadev Bhattiprolu
Only the global-init process must be special - any other cgroup-init process must be killable to prevent run-away processes in the system. TODO: Ideally we should allow killing the cgroup-init only from parent cgroup and prevent it being killed from within the cgroup. But that is a more complex change and will be addressed by a follow-on patch. For now allow the cgroup-init to be terminated by any process with sufficient privileges.

2007-10-19pid namespaces: initialize the namespace's proc_mntPavel Emelyanov
The namespace's proc_mnt must be kern_mount-ed to make this pointer always valid, independently of whether the user space mounted the proc or not. This solves raced in proc_flush_task, etc. with the proc_mnt switching from NULL to not-NULL. The initialization is done after the init's pid is created and hashed to make proc_get_sb() finr it and get for root inode. Sice the namespace holds the vfsmnt, vfsmnt holds the superblock and the superblock holds the namespace we must explicitly break this circle to destroy all the stuff. This is done after the init of the namespace dies. Running a few steps forward - when init exits it will kill all its children, so no proc_mnt will be needed after its death.
