2013-05-01ipc,sem: fine grained locking for semtimedopRik van Riel
Introduce finer grained locking for semtimedop, to handle the common case of a program wanting to manipulate one semaphore from an array with multiple semaphores. If the call is a semop manipulating just one semaphore in an array with multiple semaphores, only take the lock for that semaphore itself. If the call needs to manipulate multiple semaphores, or another caller is in a transaction that manipulates multiple semaphores, the sem_array lock is taken, as well as all the locks for the individual semaphores. On a 24 CPU system, performance numbers with the semop-multi test with N threads and N semaphores, look like this: vanilla Davidlohr's Davidlohr's + Davidlohr's + threads patches rwlock patches v3 patches 10 610652 726325 1783589 2142206 20 341570 365699 1520453 1977878 30 288102 307037 1498167 2037995 40 290714 305955 1612665 2256484 50 288620 312890 1733453 2650292 60 289987 306043 1649360 2388008 70 291298 306347 1723167 2717486 80 290948 305662 1729545 2763582 90 290996 306680 1736021 2757524 100 292243 306700 1773700 3059159 [davidlohr.bueso@hp.com: do not call sem_lock when bogus sma] [davidlohr.bueso@hp.com: make refcounter atomic] Signed-off-by: Rik van Riel <riel@redhat.com> Suggested-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org> Acked-by: Davidlohr Bueso <davidlohr.bueso@hp.com> Cc: Chegu Vinod <chegu_vinod@hp.com> Cc: Jason Low <jason.low2@hp.com> Reviewed-by: Michel Lespinasse <walken@google.com> Cc: Peter Hurley <peter@hurleysoftware.com> Cc: Stanislav Kinsbursky <skinsbursky@parallels.com> Tested-by: Emmanuel Benisty <benisty.e@gmail.com> Tested-by: Sedat Dilek <sedat.dilek@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2013-05-01ipc,sem: do not hold ipc lock more than necessaryDavidlohr Bueso
Instead of holding the ipc lock for permissions and security checks, among others, only acquire it when necessary. Some numbers.... 1) With Rik's semop-multi.c microbenchmark we can see the following results: Baseline (3.9-rc1): cpus 4, threads: 256, semaphores: 128, test duration: 30 secs total operations: 151452270, ops/sec 5048409 + 59.40% a.out [kernel.kallsyms] [k] _raw_spin_lock + 6.14% a.out [kernel.kallsyms] [k] sys_semtimedop + 3.84% a.out [kernel.kallsyms] [k] avc_has_perm_flags + 3.64% a.out [kernel.kallsyms] [k] __audit_syscall_exit + 2.06% a.out [kernel.kallsyms] [k] copy_user_enhanced_fast_string + 1.86% a.out [kernel.kallsyms] [k] ipc_lock With this patchset: cpus 4, threads: 256, semaphores: 128, test duration: 30 secs total operations: 273156400, ops/sec 9105213 + 18.54% a.out [kernel.kallsyms] [k] _raw_spin_lock + 11.72% a.out [kernel.kallsyms] [k] sys_semtimedop + 7.70% a.out [kernel.kallsyms] [k] ipc_has_perm.isra.21 + 6.58% a.out [kernel.kallsyms] [k] avc_has_perm_flags + 6.54% a.out [kernel.kallsyms] [k] __audit_syscall_exit + 4.71% a.out [kernel.kallsyms] [k] ipc_obtain_object_check 2) While on an Oracle swingbench DSS (data mining) workload the improvements are not as exciting as with Rik's benchmark, we can see some positive numbers.

2013-05-01ipc: introduce lockless pre_down ipcctlDavidlohr Bueso
Various forms of ipc use ipcctl_pre_down() to retrieve an ipc object and check permissions, mostly for IPC_RMID and IPC_SET commands. Introduce ipcctl_pre_down_nolock(), a lockless version of this function. The locking version is retained, yet modified to call the nolock version without affecting its semantics, thus transparent to all ipc callers.

2013-05-01ipc: introduce obtaining a lockless ipc objectDavidlohr Bueso
Through ipc_lock() and therefore ipc_lock_check() we currently return the locked ipc object. This is not necessary for all situations and can, therefore, cause unnecessary ipc lock contention. Introduce analogous ipc_obtain_object() and ipc_obtain_object_check() functions that only lookup and return the ipc object. Both these functions must be called within the RCU read critical section.

2013-05-01ipc: remove bogus lock comment for ipc_checkidDavidlohr Bueso
This series makes the sysv semaphore code more scalable, by reducing the time the semaphore lock is held, and making the locking more scalable for semaphore arrays with multiple semaphores. The first four patches were written by Davidlohr Buesso, and reduce the hold time of the semaphore lock. The last three patches change the sysv semaphore code locking to be more fine grained, providing a performance boost when multiple semaphores in a semaphore array are being manipulated simultaneously. On a 24 CPU system, performance numbers with the semop-multi test with N threads and N semaphores, look like this: vanilla Davidlohr's Davidlohr's + Davidlohr's + threads patches rwlock patches v3 patches 10 610652 726325 1783589 2142206 20 341570 365699 1520453 1977878 30 288102 307037 1498167 2037995 40 290714 305955 1612665 2256484 50 288620 312890 1733453 2650292 60 289987 306043 1649360 2388008 70 291298 306347 1723167 2717486 80 290948 305662 1729545 2763582 90 290996 306680 1736021 2757524 100 292243 306700 1773700 3059159 This patch: There is no reason to be holding the ipc lock while reading ipcp->seq, hence remove misleading comment.

2013-01-04ipc: introduce message queue copy featureStanislav Kinsbursky
This patch is required for checkpoint/restore in userspace. c/r requires some way to get all pending IPC messages without deleting them from the queue (checkpoint can fail and in this case tasks will be resumed, so queue have to be valid). To achive this, new operation flag MSG_COPY for sys_msgrcv() system call was introduced. If this flag was specified, then mtype is interpreted as number of the message to copy. If MSG_COPY is set, then kernel will allocate dummy message with passed size, and then use new copy_msg() helper function to copy desired message (instead of unlinking it from the queue). Notes: 1) Return -ENOSYS if MSG_COPY is specified, but CONFIG_CHECKPOINT_RESTORE is not set.

2013-01-04ipc: add sysctl to specify desired next object idStanislav Kinsbursky
Add 3 new variables and sysctls to tune them (by one "next_id" variable for messages, semaphores and shared memory respectively). This variable can be used to set desired id for next allocated IPC object. By default it's equal to -1 and old behaviour is preserved. If this variable is non-negative, then desired idr will be extracted from it and used as a start value to search for free IDR slot. Notes: 1) this patch doesn't guarantee that the new object will have desired id. So it's up to user space how to handle new object with wrong id. 2) After a sucessful id allocation attempt, "next_id" will be set back to -1 (if it was non-negative).

2009-04-07namespaces: ipc namespaces: implement support for posix msqueuesSerge E. Hallyn
Implement multiple mounts of the mqueue file system, and link it to usage of CLONE_NEWIPC. Each ipc ns has a corresponding mqueuefs superblock. When a user does clone(CLONE_NEWIPC) or unshare(CLONE_NEWIPC), the unshare will cause an internal mount of a new mqueuefs sb linked to the new ipc ns. When a user does 'mount -t mqueue mqueue /dev/mqueue', he mounts the mqueuefs superblock. Posix message queues can be worked with both through the mq_* system calls (see mq_overview(7)), and through the VFS through the mqueue mount. Any usage of mq_open() and friends will work with the acting task's ipc namespace. Any actions through the VFS will work with the mqueuefs in which the file was created. So if a user doesn't remount mqueuefs after unshare(CLONE_NEWIPC), mq_open("/ab") will not be reflected in "ls /dev/mqueue". If task a mounts mqueue for ipc_ns:1, then clones task b with a new ipcns, ipcns:2, and then task a is the last task in ipc_ns:1 to exit, then (1) ipc_ns:1 will be freed, (2) it's superblock will live on until task b umounts the corresponding mqueuefs, and vfs actions will continue to succeed, but (3) sb->s_fs_info will be NULL for the sb corresponding to the deceased ipc_ns:1. To make this happen, we must protect the ipc reference count when a) a task exits and drops its ipcns->count, since it might be dropping it to 0 and freeing the ipcns b) a task accesses the ipcns through its mqueuefs interface, since it bumps the ipcns refcount and might race with the last task in the ipcns exiting. So the kref is changed to an atomic_t so we can use atomic_dec_and_lock(&ns->count,mq_lock), and every access to the ipcns through ns = mqueuefs_sb->s_fs_info is protected by the same lock.

Since the ipc namespaces are not linked together, they have their own notification chain: one notifier_block is defined per ipc namespace. Each time an ipc namespace is created (removed) it registers (unregisters) its notifier block in (from) the ipcns chain. The callback routine registered in the memory chain invokes the ipcns notifier chain with the IPCNS_LOWMEM event. Each callback routine registered in the ipcns namespace, in turn, recomputes msgmni for the owning namespace.

2008-02-08IPC: make struct ipc_ids static in ipc_namespacePierre Peiffer
Each ipc_namespace contains a table of 3 pointers to struct ipc_ids (3 for msg, sem and shm, structure used to store all ipcs) These 'struct ipc_ids' are dynamically allocated for each icp_namespace as the ipc_namespace itself (for the init namespace, they are initialized with pointers to static variables instead) It is so for historical reason: in fact, before the use of idr to store the ipcs, the ipcs were stored in tables of variable length, depending of the maximum number of ipc allowed. Now, these 'struct ipc_ids' have a fixed size. As they are allocated in any cases for each new ipc_namespace, there is no gain of memory in having them allocated separately of the struct ipc_namespace. This patch proposes to make this table static in the struct ipc_namespace. Thus, we can allocate all in once and get rid of all the code needed to allocate and free these ipc_ids separately.

2008-02-08namespaces: move the IPC namespace under IPC_NS optionPavel Emelyanov
Currently the IPC namespace management code is spread over the ipc/*.c files. I moved this code into ipc/namespace.c file which is compiled out when needed. The linux/ipc_namespace.h file is used to store the prototypes of the functions in namespace.c and the stubs for NAMESPACES=n case. This is done so, because the stub for copy_ipc_namespace requires the knowledge of the CLONE_NEWIPC flag, which is in sched.h. But the linux/ipc.h file itself in included into many many .c files via the sys.h->sem.h sequence so adding the sched.h into it will make all these .c depend on sched.h which is not that good. On the other hand the knowledge about the namespaces stuff is required in 4 .c files only. Besides, this patch compiles out some auxiliary functions from ipc/sem.c, msg.c and shm.c files. It turned out that moving these functions into namespaces.c is not that easy because they use many other calls and macros from the original file. Moving them would make this patch complicated. On the other hand all these functions can be consolidated, so I will send a separate patch doing this a bit later.

2007-10-19fix idr_find() lockingNadia Derbey
This is a patch that fixes the way idr_find() used to be called in ipc_lock(): in all the paths that don't imply an update of the ipcs idr, it was called without the idr tree being locked. The changes are: . in ipc_ids, the mutex has been changed into a reader/writer semaphore. . ipc_lock() now takes the mutex as a reader during the idr_find(). . a new routine ipc_lock_down() has been defined: it doesn't take the mutex, assuming that it is being held by the caller. This is the routine that is now called in all the update paths.

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>

2006-11-03[PATCH] Fix ipc entries removalPavel Emelianov
Fix two issuses related to ipc_ids->entries freeing. 1. When freeing ipc namespace we need to free entries allocated with ipc_init_ids(). 2. When removing old entries in grow_ary() ipc_rcu_putref() may be called on entries set to &ids->nullentry earlier in ipc_init_ids(). This is almost impossible without namespaces, but with them this situation becomes possible. Found during OpenVZ testing after obvious leaks in beancounters.

2005-04-16Linux-2.6.12-rc2Linus Torvalds
Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
