2011-11-21freezer: unexport refrigerator() and update try_to_freeze() slightlyTejun Heo
There is no reason to export two functions for entering the refrigerator. Calling refrigerator() instead of try_to_freeze() doesn't save anything noticeable or removes any race condition. * Rename refrigerator() to __refrigerator() and make it return bool indicating whether it scheduled out for freezing. * Update try_to_freeze() to return bool and relay the return value of __refrigerator() if freezing(). * Convert all refrigerator() users to try_to_freeze(). * Update documentation accordingly. * While at it, add might_sleep() to try_to_freeze().

2011-06-11nilfs2: fix problem in setting checkpoint intervalRyusuke Konishi
Checkpoint generation interval of nilfs goes wrong after user has changed the interval parameter with nilfs-tune tool. segctord starting. Construction interval = 5 seconds, CP frequency < 30 seconds segctord starting. Construction interval = 0 seconds, CP frequency < 30 seconds This turned out to be caused by a trivial bug in initialization code of log writer. This will fix it.

2011-05-10nilfs2: super root size should change depending on inode sizeRyusuke Konishi
The size of super root structure depends on inode size, so NILFS_SR_BYTES macro should be a function of the inode size. This fixes the issue. Even though a different size value will be written for a possible future filesystem with extended inode, but fortunately this does not break disk format compatibility.

2011-05-10nilfs2: get rid of private page allocatorRyusuke Konishi
Previously, nilfs was cloning pages for mmapped region to freeze their data and ensure consistency of checksum during writeback cycles. A private page allocator was used for this page cloning. But, we no longer need to do that since clear_page_dirty_for_io function sets up pte so that vm_ops->page_mkwrite function is called right before the mmapped pages are modified and nilfs_page_mkwrite function can safely wait for the pages to be written back to disk. So, this stops making a copy of mmapped pages during writeback, and eliminates the private page allocation and deallocation functions from nilfs.

2011-03-09nilfs2: get rid of nilfs_sb_info structureRyusuke Konishi
This directly uses sb->s_fs_info to keep a nilfs filesystem object and fully removes the intermediate nilfs_sb_info structure. With this change, the hierarchy of on-memory structures of nilfs will be simplified as follows: Before: super_block -> nilfs_sb_info -> the_nilfs -> cptree --+-> nilfs_root (current file system) +-> nilfs_root (snapshot A) +-> nilfs_root (snapshot B) : -> nilfs_sc_info (log writer structure) After: super_block -> the_nilfs -> cptree --+-> nilfs_root (current file system) +-> nilfs_root (snapshot A) +-> nilfs_root (snapshot B) : -> nilfs_sc_info (log writer structure) The reason why we didn't design so from the beginning is because the initial shape also differed from the above. The early hierachy was composed of "per-mount-point" super_block -> nilfs_sb_info pairs and a shared nilfs object. On the kernel 2.6.37, it was changed to the current shape in order to unify super block instances into one per device, and this cleanup became applicable as the result.

2011-03-02nilfs2: fix regression that i-flag is not set on changeless checkpointsRyusuke Konishi
According to the report from Jiro SEKIBA titled "regression in 2.6.37?" (Message-Id: <8739n8vs1f.wl%jir@sekiba.com>), on 2.6.37 and later kernels, lscp command no longer displays "i" flag on checkpoints that snapshot operations or garbage collection created. This is a regression of nilfs2 checkpointing function, and it's critical since it broke behavior of a part of nilfs2 applications. For instance, snapshot manager of TimeBrowse gets to create meaningless snapshots continuously; snapshot creation triggers another checkpoint, but applications cannot distinguish whether the new checkpoint contains meaningful changes or not without the i-flag. This patch fixes the regression and brings that application behavior back to normal.

2011-01-10nilfs2: mark buffer heads as delayed until the data is written to diskRyusuke Konishi
Nilfs does not allocate new blocks on disk until they are actually written to. To implement fiemap, we need to deal with such blocks. To allow successive fiemap patch to distinguish mapped but unallocated regions, this marks buffer heads of those new blocks as delayed and clears the flag after the blocks are written to disk.

2010-10-26mm: add account_page_writeback()Michael Rubin
To help developers and applications gain visibility into writeback behaviour this patch adds two counters to /proc/vmstat. # grep nr_dirtied /proc/vmstat nr_dirtied 3747 # grep nr_written /proc/vmstat nr_written 3618 These entries allow user apps to understand writeback behaviour over time and learn how it is impacting their performance. Currently there is no way to inspect dirty and writeback speed over time. It's not possible for nr_dirty/nr_writeback. These entries are necessary to give visibility into writeback behaviour. We have /proc/diskstats which lets us understand the io in the block layer. We have blktrace for more in depth understanding. We have e2fsprogs and debugsfs to give insight into the file systems behaviour, but we don't offer our users the ability understand what writeback is doing. There is no way to know how active it is over the whole system, if it's falling behind or to quantify it's efforts. With these values exported users can easily see how much data applications are sending through writeback and also at what rates writeback is processing this data. Comparing the rates of change between the two allow developers to see when writeback is not able to keep up with incoming traffic and the rate of dirty memory being sent to the IO back end. This allows folks to understand their io workloads and track kernel issues. Non kernel engineers at Google often use these counters to solve puzzling performance problems. Patch #4 adds a pernode vmstat file with nr_dirtied and nr_written Patch #5 add writeback thresholds to /proc/vmstat Currently these values are in debugfs. But they should be promoted to /proc since they are useful for developers who are writing databases and file servers and are not debugging the kernel. The output is as below: # grep threshold /proc/vmstat nr_pages_dirty_threshold 409111 nr_pages_dirty_background_threshold 818223 This patch: This allows code outside of the mm core to safely manipulate page writeback state and not worry about the other accounting. Not using these routines means that some code will lose track of the accounting and we get bugs. Modify nilfs2 to use interface.

2010-10-23nilfs2: add routines to redirect access to buffers of DAT fileRyusuke Konishi
During garbage collection (GC), DAT file, which converts virtual block number to real block number, may return disk block number that is not yet written to the device. To avoid access to unwritten blocks, the current implementation stores changes to the caches of GCDAT during GC and atomically commit the changes into the DAT file after they are written to the device. This patch, instead, adds a function that makes a copy of specified buffer and stores it in nilfs_shadow_map, and a function to get the backup copy as needed (nilfs_mdt_freeze_buffer and nilfs_mdt_get_frozen_buffer respectively). Before DAT changes block number in an entry block, it makes a copy and redirect access to the buffer so that address conversion function (i.e. nilfs_dat_translate) refers to the old address saved in the copy. This patch gives requisites for such redirection. Signed-off-by: Ryusuke Konishi <konishi.ryusuke@lab.ntt.co.jp>

2010-10-23nilfs2: keep zero value in i_cno except for gc-inodesRyusuke Konishi
On-memory inode structures of nilfs have a member "i_cno" which stores a checkpoint number related to the inode. For gc-inodes, this field indicates version of data each gc-inode caches for GC. Log writer temporarily uses "i_cno" to transfer the latest checkpoint number. This stops the latter use and lets only gc-inodes use it. The purpose of this patch is to allow the successive change use "i_cno" for inode lookup. Signed-off-by: Ryusuke Konishi <konishi.ryusuke@lab.ntt.co.jp>
2010-07-23nilfs2: do not update log cursor for small changeRyusuke Konishi
Super blocks of nilfs are periodically overwritten in order to record the recent log position. This shortens recovery time after unclean unmount, but the current implementation performs the update even for a few blocks of change. If the filesystem gets small changes slowly and continually, super blocks may be updated excessively. This moderates the issue by skipping update of log cursor if it does not cross a segment boundary. Signed-off-by: Ryusuke Konishi <konishi.ryusuke@lab.ntt.co.jp>
2010-07-23nilfs2: sync super blocks in turnsJiro SEKIBA
This will sync super blocks in turns instead of syncing duplicate super blocks at the time. This will help searching valid super root when super block is written into disk before log is written, which is happen when barrier-less block devices are unmounted uncleanly. In the situation, old super block likely points to valid log. This patch introduces ns_sbwcount member to the nilfs object and adds nilfs_sb_will_flip() function; ns_sbwcount counts how many times super blocks write back to the disk. And, nilfs_sb_will_flip() decides whether flipping required or not based on the count of ns_sbwcount to sync super blocks asymmetrically. The following functions are also changed: - nilfs_prepare_super(): flips super blocks according to the argument. The argument is calculated by nilfs_sb_will_flip() function. - nilfs_cleanup_super(): sets "clean" flag to both super blocks if they point to the same checkpoint. To update both of super block information, caller of nilfs_commit_super must set the information on both super blocks.

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.

This moves iterator to submit write requests for a series of logs into segbuf.c, and hides nilfs_segbuf_write() and nilfs_segbuf_wait() in the file. Signed-off-by: Ryusuke Konishi <konishi.ryusuke@lab.ntt.co.jp>
2010-02-13nilfs2: get rid of s_dirt flag useRyusuke Konishi
This replaces s_dirt flag use in nilfs with a new flag added on the nilfs object. The s_dirt flag was used to indicate if sop->write_super() should be called, however the current version of nilfs does not use the callback. Thus, it can be replaced with the own flag.

2010-02-13nilfs2: fix potential hang in nilfs_error on errors=remount-roRyusuke Konishi
nilfs_error() calls nilfs_detach_segment_constructor() if errors=remount-ro option is specified, and this may lead to a hang due to recursive locking of, for instance, nilfs->ns_segctor_sem and others. In this case, detaching segment constructor is not necessary because read-only flag is set to the filesystem and further writes are blocked. This fixes the potential hang issue by removing the nilfs_detach_segment_constructor() call from nilfs_error. Signed-off-by: Ryusuke Konishi <konishi.ryusuke@lab.ntt.co.jp>
