2013-01-03Drivers: virtio: remove __dev* attributes.Greg Kroah-Hartman
CONFIG_HOTPLUG is going away as an option. As a result, the __dev* markings need to be removed. This change removes the use of __devinit, __devexit_p, and __devexit from these drivers. Based on patches originally written by Bill Pemberton, but redone by me in order to handle some of the coding style issues better, by hand.

2012-12-11virtio_balloon: introduce migration primitives to balloon pagesRafael Aquini
Memory fragmentation introduced by ballooning might reduce significantly the number of 2MB contiguous memory blocks that can be used within a guest, thus imposing performance penalties associated with the reduced number of transparent huge pages that could be used by the guest workload. Besides making balloon pages movable at allocation time and introducing the necessary primitives to perform balloon page migration/compaction, this patch also introduces the following locking scheme, in order to enhance the syncronization methods for accessing elements of struct virtio_balloon, thus providing protection against concurrent access introduced by parallel memory migration threads. - balloon_lock (mutex) : synchronizes the access demand to elements of struct virtio_balloon and its queue operations; [yongjun_wei@trendmicro.com.cn: fix missing unlock on error in fill_balloon()] [akpm@linux-foundation.org: avoid having multiple return points in fill_balloon()] [akpm@linux-foundation.org: fix printk warning]Signed-off-by: Rafael Aquini <aquini@redhat.com> Acked-by: Michael S.

2012-07-09virtio-balloon: fix add/get API useMichael S. Tsirkin
Since ee7cd8981e15bcb365fc762afe3fc47b8242f630 'virtio: expose added descriptors immediately.', in virtio balloon virtqueue_get_buf might now run concurrently with virtqueue_kick. I audited both and this seems safe in practice but this is not guaranteed by the API. Additionally, a spurious interrupt might in theory make virtqueue_get_buf run in parallel with virtqueue_add_buf, which is racy. While we might try to protect against spurious callbacks it's easier to fix the driver: balloon seems to be the only one (mis)using the API like this, so let's just fix balloon.

2012-04-15virtio_balloon: fix handling of PAGE_SIZE != 4kMichael S. Tsirkin
As reported by David Gibson, current code handles PAGE_SIZE != 4k completely wrong which can lead to guest memory corruption errors: - page_to_balloon_pfn is wrong: e.g. on system with 64K page size it gives the same pfn value for 16 different pages. - we also need to convert back to linux pfns when we free. - for each linux page we need to tell host about multiple balloon pages, but code only adds one pfn to the array.

2012-03-31virtio: balloon: Allow stats update after restore from S4Amit Shah

2012-03-01virtio: balloon: leak / fill balloon across S4Amit Shah
commit e562966dbaf49e7804097cd991e5d3a8934fc148 added support for S4 to the balloon driver. The freeze function did nothing to free the pages, since reclaiming the pages from the host to immediately give them back (if S4 was successful) seemed wasteful. Also, if S4 wasn't successful, the guest would have to re-fill the balloon. On restore, the pages were supposed to be marked freed and the free page counters were incremented to reflect the balloon was totally deflated. However, this wasn't done right. The pages that were earlier taken away from the guest during a balloon inflation operation were just shown as used pages after a successful restore from S4. Just a fancy way of leaking lots of memory. Instead of trying that, just leak the balloon on freeze and fill it on restore/thaw paths. This works properly now. The optimisation to not leak can be added later on after a bit of refactoring of the code. Signed-off-by: Amit Shah <amit.shah@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Rusty Russell <rusty@rustcorp.com.au>
2012-01-12virtio: balloon: Add freeze, restore handlers to support S4Amit Shah
Handling balloon hibernate / restore is tricky. If the balloon was inflated before going into the hibernation state, upon resume, the host will not have any memory of that. Any pages that were passed on to the host earlier would most likely be invalid, and the host will have to re-balloon to the previous value to get in the pre-hibernate state. So the only sane thing for the guest to do here is to discard all the pages that were put in the balloon. When to discard the pages is the next question. One solution is to deflate the balloon just before writing the image to the disk (in the freeze() PM callback). However, asking for pages from the host just to discard them immediately after seems wasteful of resources. Hence, it makes sense to do this by just fudging our counters soon after wakeup. This means we don't deflate the balloon before sleep, and also don't put unnecessary pressure on the host. This also helps in the thaw case: if the freeze fails for whatever reason, the balloon should continue to remain in the inflated state. This was tested by issuing 'swapoff -a' and trying to go into the S4 state. That fails, and the balloon stays inflated, as expected. Both the host and the guest are happy. Finally, in the restore() callback, we empty the list of pages that were previously given off to the host, add the appropriate number of pages to the totalram_pages counter, reset the num_pages counter to 0, and all is fine. As a last step, delete the vqs on the freeze callback to prepare for hibernation, and re-create them in the restore and thaw callbacks to resume normal operation. The kthread doesn't race with any operations here, since it's frozen before the freeze() call and is thawed after the thaw() and restore() callbacks, so we're safe with that.

2011-05-30virtio balloon: kill tell-host-first logicDave Hansen
The virtio balloon driver has a VIRTIO_BALLOON_F_MUST_TELL_HOST feature bit. Whenever the bit is set, the guest kernel must always tell the host before we free pages back to the allocator. Without this feature, we might free a page (and have another user touch it) while the hypervisor is unprepared for it. But, if the bit is _not_ set, we are under no obligation to reverse the order; we're under no obligation to do _anything_. As of now, qemu-kvm defines the bit, but doesn't set it. This patch makes the "tell host first" logic the only case. This should make everybody happy, and reduce the amount of untested or untestable code in the kernel. This _also_ means that we don't have to preserve a pfn list after the pages are freed, which should let us get rid of some temporary storage (vb->pfns) eventually.

2010-03-30include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking ↵Tejun Heo
implicit slab.h inclusion from percpu.h percpu.h is included by sched.h and module.h and thus ends up being included when building most .c files. percpu.h includes slab.h which in turn includes gfp.h making everything defined by the two files universally available and complicating inclusion dependencies. percpu.h -> slab.h dependency is about to be removed. Prepare for this change by updating users of gfp and slab facilities include those headers directly instead of assuming availability. As this conversion needs to touch large number of source files, the following script is used as the basis of conversion. http://userweb.kernel.org/~tj/misc/slabh-sweep.py The script does the followings. * Scan files for gfp and slab usages and update includes such that only the necessary includes are there. ie. if only gfp is used, gfp.h, if slab is used, slab.h. * When the script inserts a new include, it looks at the include blocks and try to put the new include such that its order conforms to its surrounding. It's put in the include block which contains core kernel includes, in the same order that the rest are ordered - alphabetical, Christmas tree, rev-Xmas-tree or at the end if there doesn't seem to be any matching order. * If the script can't find a place to put a new include (mostly because the file doesn't have fitting include block), it prints out an error message indicating which .h file needs to be added to the file. The conversion was done in the following steps. 1. The initial automatic conversion of all .c files updated slightly over 4000 files, deleting around 700 includes and adding ~480 gfp.h and ~3000 slab.h inclusions. The script emitted errors for ~400 files. 2. Each error was manually checked. Some didn't need the inclusion, some needed manual addition while adding it to implementation .h or embedding .c file was more appropriate for others. This step added inclusions to around 150 files. 3. The script was run again and the output was compared to the edits from #2 to make sure no file was left behind. 4. Several build tests were done and a couple of problems were fixed. e.g. lib/decompress_*.c used malloc/free() wrappers around slab APIs requiring slab.h to be added manually. 5. The script was run on all .h files but without automatically editing them as sprinkling gfp.h and slab.h inclusions around .h files could easily lead to inclusion dependency hell. Most gfp.h inclusion directives were ignored as stuff from gfp.h was usually wildly available and often used in preprocessor macros. Each slab.h inclusion directive was examined and added manually as necessary. 6. percpu.h was updated not to include slab.h. 7. Build test were done on the following configurations and failures were fixed. CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL was turned off for all tests (as my distributed build env didn't work with gcov compiles) and a few more options had to be turned off depending on archs to make things build (like ipr on powerpc/64 which failed due to missing writeq). * x86 and x86_64 UP and SMP allmodconfig and a custom test config. * powerpc and powerpc64 SMP allmodconfig * sparc and sparc64 SMP allmodconfig * ia64 SMP allmodconfig * s390 SMP allmodconfig * alpha SMP allmodconfig * um on x86_64 SMP allmodconfig 8. percpu.h modifications were reverted so that it could be applied as a separate patch and serve as bisection point. Given the fact that I had only a couple of failures from tests on step 6, I'm fairly confident about the coverage of this conversion patch. If there is a breakage, it's likely to be something in one of the arch headers which should be easily discoverable easily on most builds of the specific arch.

2010-02-24virtio: Fix scheduling while atomic in virtio_balloon statsAdam Litke
This is a fix for my earlier patch: "virtio: Add memory statistics reporting to the balloon driver (V4)". I discovered that all_vm_events() can sleep and therefore stats collection cannot be done in interrupt context. One solution is to handle the interrupt by noting that stats need to be collected and waking the existing vballoon kthread which will complete the work via stats_handle_request(). Rusty, is this a saner way of doing business? There is one issue that I would like a broader opinion on. In stats_request, I update vb->need_stats_update and then wake up the kthread. The kthread uses vb->need_stats_update as a condition variable. Do I need a memory barrier between the update and wake_up to ensure that my kthread sees the correct value? My testing suggests that it is not needed but I would like some confirmation from the experts.

2010-02-24virtio: Add memory statistics reporting to the balloon driver (V4)Adam Litke
Changes since V3: - Do not do endian conversions as they will be done in the host - Report stats that reference a quantity of memory in bytes - Minor coding style updates Changes since V2: - Increase stat field size to 64 bits - Report all sizes in kb (not pages) - Drop anon_pages stat and fix endianness conversion Changes since V1: - Use a virtqueue instead of the device config space When using ballooning to manage overcommitted memory on a host, a system for guests to communicate their memory usage to the host can provide information that will minimize the impact of ballooning on the guests. The current method employs a daemon running in each guest that communicates memory statistics to a host daemon at a specified time interval. The host daemon aggregates this information and inflates and/or deflates balloons according to the level of host memory pressure. This approach is effective but overly complex since a daemon must be installed inside each guest and coordinated to communicate with the host. A simpler approach is to collect memory statistics in the virtio balloon driver and communicate them directly to the hypervisor. This patch enables the guest-side support by adding stats collection and reporting to the virtio balloon driver.

Since we're returning a s64, instead of getting the same negative number we desire, we get a very large positive number. This handles the case where v < vb->num_pages and ensures we get a small, negative, s64 as the result. Rusty: please push this for 2.6.27-rc4.

2008-05-02virtio: explicit advertisement of driver featuresRusty Russell
A recent proposed feature addition to the virtio block driver revealed some flaws in the API: in particular, we assume that feature negotiation is complete once a driver's probe function returns. There is nothing in the API to require this, however, and even I didn't notice when it was violated. So instead, we require the driver to specify what features it supports in a table, we can then move the feature negotiation into the virtio core. The intersection of device and driver features are presented in a new 'features' bitmap in the struct virtio_device. Note that this highlights the difference between Linux unsigned-long bitmaps where each unsigned long is in native endian, and a straight-forward little-endian array of bytes. Drivers can still remove feature bits in their probe routine if they really have to. API changes: - dev->config->feature() no longer gets and acks a feature. - drivers should advertise their features in the 'feature_table' field - use virtio_has_feature() for extra sanity when checking feature bits Signed-off-by: Rusty Russell <rusty@rustcorp.com.au>

2008-02-04virtio: balloon driverRusty Russell
After discussions with Anthony Liguori, it seems that the virtio balloon can be made even simpler. Here's my attempt. The device configuration tells the driver how much memory it should take from the guest (ie. balloon size). The guest feeds the page numbers it has taken via one virtqueue. A second virtqueue feeds the page numbers the driver wants back: if the device has the VIRTIO_BALLOON_F_MUST_TELL_HOST bit, then this queue is compulsory, otherwise it's advisory (and the guest can simply fault the pages back in). This driver can be enhanced later to deflate the balloon via a shrinker, oom callback or we could even go for a complete set of in-guest regulators.
