2013-11-20perf: Fix perf ring buffer memory orderingPeter Zijlstra
commit bf378d341e4873ed928dc3c636252e6895a21f50 upstream. The PPC64 people noticed a missing memory barrier and crufty old comments in the perf ring buffer code. So update all the comments and add the missing barrier. When the architecture implements local_t using atomic_long_t there will be double barriers issued; but short of introducing more conditional barrier primitives this is the best we can do.

2013-09-26uprobes: Fix utask->depth accounting in handle_trampoline()Oleg Nesterov
commit 878b5a6efd38030c7a90895dc8346e8fb1e09b4c upstream. Currently utask->depth is simply the number of allocated/pending return_instance's in uprobe_task->return_instances list. handle_trampoline() should decrement this counter every time we handle/free an instance, but due to typo it does this only if ->chained == T. This means that in the likely case this counter is never decremented and the probed task can't report more than MAX_URETPROBE_DEPTH events.

2013-07-25perf: Remove WARN_ON_ONCE() check in __perf_event_enable() for valid scenarioJiri Olsa
commit 06f417968beac6e6b614e17b37d347aa6a6b1d30 upstream. The '!ctx->is_active' check has a valid scenario, so there's no need for the warning. The reason is that there's a time window between the 'ctx->is_active' check in the perf_event_enable() function and the __perf_event_enable() function having: - IRQs on - ctx->lock unlocked where the task could be killed and 'ctx' deactivated by perf_event_exit_task(), ending up with the warning below. So remove the WARN_ON_ONCE() check and add comments to explain it all. This addresses the following warning reported by Vince Weaver: [ 324.983534] ------------[ cut here ]------------ [ 324.984420] WARNING: at kernel/events/core.c:1953 __perf_event_enable+0x187/0x190() [ 324.984420] Modules linked in: [ 324.984420] CPU: 19 PID: 2715 Comm: nmi_bug_snb Not tainted 3.10.0+ #246 [ 324.984420] Hardware name: Supermicro X8DTN/X8DTN, BIOS 4.6.3 01/08/2010 [ 324.984420] 0000000000000009 ffff88043fce3ec8 ffffffff8160ea0b ffff88043fce3f00 [ 324.984420] ffffffff81080ff0 ffff8802314fdc00 ffff880231a8f800 ffff88043fcf7860 [ 324.984420] 0000000000000286 ffff880231a8f800 ffff88043fce3f10 ffffffff8108103a [ 324.984420] Call Trace: [ 324.984420] <IRQ> [<ffffffff8160ea0b>] dump_stack+0x19/0x1b [ 324.984420] [<ffffffff81080ff0>] warn_slowpath_common+0x70/0xa0 [ 324.984420] [<ffffffff8108103a>] warn_slowpath_null+0x1a/0x20 [ 324.984420] [<ffffffff81134437>] __perf_event_enable+0x187/0x190 [ 324.984420] [<ffffffff81130030>] remote_function+0x40/0x50 [ 324.984420] [<ffffffff810e51de>] generic_smp_call_function_single_interrupt+0xbe/0x130 [ 324.984420] [<ffffffff81066a47>] smp_call_function_single_interrupt+0x27/0x40 [ 324.984420] [<ffffffff8161fd2f>] call_function_single_interrupt+0x6f/0x80 [ 324.984420] <EOI> [<ffffffff816161a1>] ? _raw_spin_unlock_irqrestore+0x41/0x70 [ 324.984420] [<ffffffff8113799d>] perf_event_exit_task+0x14d/0x210 [ 324.984420] [<ffffffff810acd04>] ? switch_task_namespaces+0x24/0x60 [ 324.984420] [<ffffffff81086946>] do_exit+0x2b6/0xa40 [ 324.984420] [<ffffffff8161615c>] ? _raw_spin_unlock_irq+0x2c/0x30 [ 324.984420] [<ffffffff81087279>] do_group_exit+0x49/0xc0 [ 324.984420] [<ffffffff81096854>] get_signal_to_deliver+0x254/0x620 [ 324.984420] [<ffffffff81043057>] do_signal+0x57/0x5a0 [ 324.984420] [<ffffffff8161a164>] ? __do_page_fault+0x2a4/0x4e0 [ 324.984420] [<ffffffff8161665c>] ? retint_restore_args+0xe/0xe [ 324.984420] [<ffffffff816166cd>] ? retint_signal+0x11/0x84 [ 324.984420] [<ffffffff81043605>] do_notify_resume+0x65/0x80 [ 324.984420] [<ffffffff81616702>] retint_signal+0x46/0x84 [ 324.984420] ---[ end trace 442ec2f04db3771a ]--- Reported-by: Vince Weaver <vincent.weaver@maine.edu> Signed-off-by: Jiri Olsa <jolsa@redhat.com> Suggested-by: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Cc: Corey Ashford <cjashfor@linux.vnet.ibm.com> Cc: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@gmail.com> Cc: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Cc: Namhyung Kim <namhyung@kernel.org> Cc: Paul Mackerras <paulus@samba.org> Cc: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org> Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/1373384651-6109-2-git-send-email-jolsa@redhat.com Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@kernel.org> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org>
2013-07-25perf: Clone child context from parent context pmuJiri Olsa
commit 734df5ab549ca44f40de0f07af1c8803856dfb18 upstream. Currently when the child context for inherited events is created, it's based on the pmu object of the first event of the parent context. This is wrong for the following scenario: - HW context having HW and SW event - HW event got removed (closed) - SW event stays in HW context as the only event and its pmu is used to clone the child context The issue starts when the cpu context object is touched based on the pmu context object (__get_cpu_context). In this case the HW context will work with SW cpu context ending up with following WARN below. Fixing this by using parent context pmu object to clone from child context.

2013-06-20hw_breakpoint: Use cpu_possible_mask in {reserve,release}_bp_slot()Oleg Nesterov
fetch_bp_busy_slots() and toggle_bp_slot() use for_each_online_cpu(), this is obviously wrong wrt cpu_up() or cpu_down(), we can over/under account the per-cpu numbers.

2013-06-20hw_breakpoint: Fix cpu check in task_bp_pinned(cpu)Oleg Nesterov
trinity fuzzer triggered WARN_ONCE("Can't find any breakpoint slot") in arch_install_hw_breakpoint() but the problem is not arch-specific. The problem is, task_bp_pinned(cpu) checks "cpu == iter->cpu" but this doesn't account the "all cpus" events with iter->cpu < 0. This means that, say, register_user_hw_breakpoint(tsk) can happily create the arbitrary number > HBP_NUM of breakpoints which can not be activated. toggle_bp_task_slot() is equally wrong by the same reason and nr_task_bp_pinned[] can have negative entries. Simple test: # perl -e 'sleep 1 while 1' & # perf record -e mem:0x10,mem:0x10,mem:0x10,mem:0x10,mem:0x10 -p `pidof perl` Before this patch this triggers the same problem/WARN_ON(), after the patch it correctly fails with -ENOSPC.

2013-06-19perf: Fix mmap() accounting holePeter Zijlstra
Vince's fuzzer once again found holes. This time it spotted a leak in the locked page accounting. When an event had redirected output and its close() was the last reference to the buffer we didn't have a vm context to undo accounting. Change the code to destroy the buffer on the last munmap() and detach all redirected events at that time. This provides us the right context to undo the vm accounting.

2013-05-28perf: Fix perf mmap bugsPeter Zijlstra
Vince reported a problem found by his perf specific trinity fuzzer. Al noticed 2 problems with perf's mmap(): - it has issues against fork() since we use vma->vm_mm for accounting. - it has an rb refcount leak on double mmap(). We fix the issues against fork() by using VM_DONTCOPY; I don't think there's code out there that uses this; we didn't hear about weird accounting problems/crashes. If we do need this to work, the previously proposed VM_PINNED could make this work. Aside from the rb reference leak spotted by Al, Vince's example prog was indeed doing a double mmap() through the use of perf_event_set_output(). This exposes another problem, since we now have 2 events with one buffer, the accounting gets screwy because we account per event. Fix this by making the buffer responsible for its own accounting.

2013-05-05Merge branch 'timers-nohz-for-linus' of ↵Linus Torvalds
git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip Pull 'full dynticks' support from Ingo Molnar: "This tree from Frederic Weisbecker adds a new, (exciting! :-) core kernel feature to the timer and scheduler subsystems: 'full dynticks', or CONFIG_NO_HZ_FULL=y. This feature extends the nohz variable-size timer tick feature from idle to busy CPUs (running at most one task) as well, potentially reducing the number of timer interrupts significantly. This feature got motivated by real-time folks and the -rt tree, but the general utility and motivation of full-dynticks runs wider than that: - HPC workloads get faster: CPUs running a single task should be able to utilize a maximum amount of CPU power. A periodic timer tick at HZ=1000 can cause a constant overhead of up to 1.0%. This feature removes that overhead - and speeds up the system by 0.5%-1.0% on typical distro configs even on modern systems. - Real-time workload latency reduction: CPUs running critical tasks should experience as little jitter as possible. The last remaining source of kernel-related jitter was the periodic timer tick. - A single task executing on a CPU is a pretty common situation, especially with an increasing number of cores/CPUs, so this feature helps desktop and mobile workloads as well. The cost of the feature is mainly related to increased timer reprogramming overhead when a CPU switches its tick period, and thus slightly longer to-idle and from-idle latency. Configuration-wise a third mode of operation is added to the existing two NOHZ kconfig modes: - CONFIG_HZ_PERIODIC: [formerly !CONFIG_NO_HZ], now explicitly named as a config option. This is the traditional Linux periodic tick design: there's a HZ tick going on all the time, regardless of whether a CPU is idle or not. - CONFIG_NO_HZ_IDLE: [formerly CONFIG_NO_HZ=y], this turns off the periodic tick when a CPU enters idle mode. - CONFIG_NO_HZ_FULL: this new mode, in addition to turning off the tick when a CPU is idle, also slows the tick down to 1 Hz (one timer interrupt per second) when only a single task is running on a CPU. The .config behavior is compatible: existing !CONFIG_NO_HZ and CONFIG_NO_HZ=y settings get translated to the new values, without the user having to configure anything. CONFIG_NO_HZ_FULL is turned off by default. This feature is based on a lot of infrastructure work that has been steadily going upstream in the last 2-3 cycles: related RCU support and non-periodic cputime support in particular is upstream already. This tree adds the final pieces and activates the feature. The pull request is marked RFC because: - it's marked 64-bit only at the moment - the 32-bit support patch is small but did not get ready in time. - it has a number of fresh commits that came in after the merge window. The overwhelming majority of commits are from before the merge window, but still some aspects of the tree are fresh and so I marked it RFC. - it's a pretty wide-reaching feature with lots of effects - and while the components have been in testing for some time, the full combination is still not very widely used. That it's default-off should reduce its regression abilities and obviously there are no known regressions with CONFIG_NO_HZ_FULL=y enabled either. - the feature is not completely idempotent: there is no 100% equivalent replacement for a periodic scheduler/timer tick. In particular there's ongoing work to map out and reduce its effects on scheduler load-balancing and statistics. This should not impact correctness though, there are no known regressions related to this feature at this point. - it's a pretty ambitious feature that with time will likely be enabled by most Linux distros, and we'd like you to make input on its design/implementation, if you dislike some aspect we missed. Without flaming us to crisp! :-) Future plans: - there's ongoing work to reduce 1Hz to 0Hz, to essentially shut off the periodic tick altogether when there's a single busy task on a CPU. We'd first like 1 Hz to be exposed more widely before we go for the 0 Hz target though. - once we reach 0 Hz we can remove the periodic tick assumption from nr_running>=2 as well, by essentially interrupting busy tasks only as frequently as the sched_latency constraints require us to do - once every 4-40 msecs, depending on nr_running. I am personally leaning towards biting the bullet and doing this in v3.10, like the -rt tree this effort has been going on for too long - but the final word is up to you as usual.

2013-05-01perf: Fix vmalloc ring buffer pages handlingJiri Olsa
If we allocate perf ring buffer with the size of single (user) page, we will get memory corruption when releasing itin rb_free_work function (for CONFIG_PERF_USE_VMALLOC option). For single page sized ring buffer the page_order is -1 (because nr_pages is 0). This needs to be recognized in the rb_free_work function to release proper amount of pages. Adding data_page_nr function that returns number of allocated data pages. Customizing the rest of the code to use it.

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tj/cgroup Pull cgroup updates from Tejun Heo: - Fixes and a lot of cleanups. Locking cleanup is finally complete. cgroup_mutex is no longer exposed to individual controlelrs which used to cause nasty deadlock issues. Li fixed and cleaned up quite a bit including long standing ones like racy cgroup_path(). - device cgroup now supports proper hierarchy thanks to Aristeu. - perf_event cgroup now supports proper hierarchy. - A new mount option "__DEVEL__sane_behavior" is added. As indicated by the name, this option is to be used for development only at this point and generates a warning message when used. Unfortunately, cgroup interface currently has too many brekages and inconsistencies to implement a consistent and unified hierarchy on top. The new flag is used to collect the behavior changes which are necessary to implement consistent unified hierarchy. It's likely that this flag won't be used verbatim when it becomes ready but will be enabled implicitly along with unified hierarchy. The option currently disables some of broken behaviors in cgroup core and also .use_hierarchy switch in memcg (will be routed through -mm), which can be used to make very unusual hierarchy where nesting is partially honored. It will also be used to implement hierarchy support for blk-throttle which would be impossible otherwise without introducing a full separate set of control knobs. This is essentially versioning of interface which isn't very nice but at this point I can't see any other options which would allow keeping the interface the same while moving towards hierarchy behavior which is at least somewhat sane. The planned unified hierarchy is likely to require some level of adaptation from userland anyway, so I think it'd be best to take the chance and update the interface such that it's supportable in the long term. Maintaining the existing interface does complicate cgroup core but shouldn't put too much strain on individual controllers and I think it'd be manageable for the foreseeable future. Maybe we'll be able to drop it in a decade.

User-space have "unlimited" stack, and this patch limits the return probes nestedness as a simple remedy for it. Note that this implementation leaks return_instance on siglongjmp until exit()/exec(). The intention is to have KISS and bare minimum solution for the initial implementation in order to not complicate the uretprobes code.

The only thing necessary is to consider a task belonging to a descendant cgroup as a match. IOW, if the cgroup of the currently executing task (@cpuctx->cgrp) equals or is a descendant of the event's cgroup (@event->cgrp), then the event should be enabled.

Some architectures like powerpc have multiple variants of the trap instruction. Introduce an additional helper is_trap_insn() for run-time handling of non-uprobe traps on such architectures. While there, change is_swbp_at_addr() to is_trap_at_addr() for reading clarity. With this change, the uprobe registration path will supercede any trap instruction inserted at the requested location, while taking care of delivering the SIGTRAP for cases where the trap notification came in for an address without a uprobe.

There is already the period which is used similarly, but it means something different, so I chose to not overload it. Instead a new sample type for WEIGHT is added. Can be used for multiple things. Initially it is used for TSX abort costs and profiling by memory latencies (so to make expensive load appear higher up in the histograms). The concept is quite generic and can be extended to many other kinds of events or architectures, as long as the hardware provides suitable auxillary values. In principle it could be also used for software tracepoints. This adds the generic glue. A new optional sample format for a 64-bit weight value.

2013-03-21perf: Fix ring_buffer perf_output_space() boundary calculationStephane Eranian
This patch fixes a flaw in perf_output_space(). In case the size of the space needed is bigger than the actual buffer size, there may be situations where the function would return true (i.e., there is space) when it should not. head > offset due to rounding of the masking logic. The problem can be tested by activating BTS on Intel processors. A BTS record can be as big as 16 pages. The following command fails: $ perf record -m 4 -c 1 -e branches:u my_test_program You will get a buffer corruption with this. Perf report won't be able to parse the perf.data. The fix is to first check that the requested space is smaller than the buffer size. If so, then the masking logic will work fine. If not, then there is no chance the record can be saved and it will be gracefully handled by upper code layers. [ In v2, we also make the logic for the writable more explicit by renaming it to rb->overwrite because it tells whether or not the buffer can overwrite its tail (suggested by PeterZ). ] Signed-off-by: Stephane Eranian <eranian@google.com> Acked-by: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Cc: peterz@infradead.org Cc: jolsa@redhat.com Cc: fweisbec@gmail.com Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/20130318133327.GA3056@quad Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@kernel.org>

2013-03-18perf: Generate EXIT event only once per task contextNamhyung Kim
perf_event_task_event() iterates pmu list and generate events for each eligible pmu context. But if task_event has task_ctx like in EXIT it'll generate events even though the pmu doesn't have an eligible one. Fix it by moving the code to proper places.

2013-03-18perf: Reset hwc->last_period on sw clock eventsNamhyung Kim
When cpu/task clock events are initialized, their sampling frequencies are converted to have a fixed value. However it missed to update the hwc->last_period which was set to 1 for initial sampling frequency calibration. Because this hwc->last_period value is used as a period in perf_swevent_ hrtime(), every recorded sample will have an incorrected period of 1. $ perf record -e task-clock noploop 1 [ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ] [ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.158 MB perf.data (~6919 samples) ] $ perf report -n --show-total-period --stdio # Samples: 4K of event 'task-clock' # Event count (approx.): 4000 # # Overhead Samples Period Command Shared Object Symbol # ........ ............ ............ ....... ............. .................. # 99.95% 3998 3998 noploop noploop [.] main 0.03% 1 1 noploop libc-2.15.so [.] init_cacheinfo 0.03% 1 1 noploop ld-2.15.so [.] open_verify Note that it doesn't affect the non-sampling event so that the perf stat still gets correct value with or without this patch. $ perf stat -e task-clock noploop 1 Performance counter stats for 'noploop 1': 1000.272525 task-clock # 1.000 CPUs utilized 1.000560605 seconds time elapsed Signed-off-by: Namhyung Kim <namhyung@kernel.org> Cc: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@ghostprotocols.net> Cc: Jiri Olsa <jolsa@redhat.com> Cc: Namhyung Kim <namhyung.kim@lge.com> Cc: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/1363574507-18808-1-git-send-email-namhyung@kernel.org Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@kernel.org>

2013-02-27hlist: drop the node parameter from iteratorsSasha Levin
I'm not sure why, but the hlist for each entry iterators were conceived list_for_each_entry(pos, head, member) The hlist ones were greedy and wanted an extra parameter: hlist_for_each_entry(tpos, pos, head, member) Why did they need an extra pos parameter? I'm not quite sure. Not only they don't really need it, it also prevents the iterator from looking exactly like the list iterator, which is unfortunate. Besides the semantic patch, there was some manual work required: - Fix up the actual hlist iterators in linux/list.h - Fix up the declaration of other iterators based on the hlist ones. - A very small amount of places were using the 'node' parameter, this was modified to use 'obj->member' instead. - Coccinelle didn't handle the hlist_for_each_entry_safe iterator properly, so those had to be fixed up manually. The semantic patch which is mostly the work of Peter Senna Tschudin is here: @@ iterator name hlist_for_each_entry, hlist_for_each_entry_continue, hlist_for_each_entry_from, hlist_for_each_entry_rcu, hlist_for_each_entry_rcu_bh, hlist_for_each_entry_continue_rcu_bh, for_each_busy_worker, ax25_uid_for_each, ax25_for_each, inet_bind_bucket_for_each, sctp_for_each_hentry, sk_for_each, sk_for_each_rcu, sk_for_each_from, sk_for_each_safe, sk_for_each_bound, hlist_for_each_entry_safe, hlist_for_each_entry_continue_rcu, nr_neigh_for_each, nr_neigh_for_each_safe, nr_node_for_each, nr_node_for_each_safe, for_each_gfn_indirect_valid_sp, for_each_gfn_sp, for_each_host; type T; expression a,c,d,e; identifier b; statement S; @@ -T b; <+... when != b ( hlist_for_each_entry(a, - b, c, d) S | hlist_for_each_entry_continue(a, - b, c) S | hlist_for_each_entry_from(a, - b, c) S | hlist_for_each_entry_rcu(a, - b, c, d) S | hlist_for_each_entry_rcu_bh(a, - b, c, d) S | hlist_for_each_entry_continue_rcu_bh(a, - b, c) S | for_each_busy_worker(a, c, - b, d) S | ax25_uid_for_each(a, - b, c) S | ax25_for_each(a, - b, c) S | inet_bind_bucket_for_each(a, - b, c) S | sctp_for_each_hentry(a, - b, c) S | sk_for_each(a, - b, c) S | sk_for_each_rcu(a, - b, c) S | sk_for_each_from -(a, b) +(a) S + sk_for_each_from(a) S | sk_for_each_safe(a, - b, c, d) S | sk_for_each_bound(a, - b, c) S | hlist_for_each_entry_safe(a, - b, c, d, e) S | hlist_for_each_entry_continue_rcu(a, - b, c) S | nr_neigh_for_each(a, - b, c) S | nr_neigh_for_each_safe(a, - b, c, d) S | nr_node_for_each(a, - b, c) S | nr_node_for_each_safe(a, - b, c, d) S | - for_each_gfn_sp(a, c, d, b) S + for_each_gfn_sp(a, c, d) S | - for_each_gfn_indirect_valid_sp(a, c, d, b) S + for_each_gfn_indirect_valid_sp(a, c, d) S | for_each_host(a, - b, c) S | for_each_host_safe(a, - b, c, d) S | for_each_mesh_entry(a, - b, c, d) S ) ...+> [akpm@linux-foundation.org: drop bogus change from net/ipv4/raw.c] [akpm@linux-foundation.org: drop bogus hunk from net/ipv6/raw.c] [akpm@linux-foundation.org: checkpatch fixes] [akpm@linux-foundation.org: fix warnings] [akpm@linux-foudnation.org: redo intrusive kvm changes] Tested-by: Peter Senna Tschudin <peter.senna@gmail.com> Acked-by: Paul E.
