2012-03-01memblock: Fix size aligning of memblock_alloc_base_nid()Tejun Heo
memblock allocator aligns @size to @align to reduce the amount of fragmentation. Commit: 7bd0b0f0da ("memblock: Reimplement memblock allocation using reverse free area iterator") Broke it by incorrectly relocating @size aligning to memblock_find_in_range_node(). As the aligned size is not propagated back to memblock_alloc_base_nid(), the actually reserved size isn't aligned. While this increases memory use for memblock reserved array, this shouldn't cause any critical failure; however, it seems that the size aligning was hiding a use-beyond-allocation bug in sparc64 and losing the aligning causes boot failure. The underlying problem is currently being debugged but this is a proper fix in itself, it's already pretty late in -rc cycle for boot failures and reverting the change for debugging isn't difficult. Restore the size aligning moving it to memblock_alloc_base_nid(). Reported-by: Meelis Roos <mroos@linux.ee> Signed-off-by: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org> Cc: David S.

2012-02-24mm: memcg: Correct unregistring of events attached to the same eventfdAnton Vorontsov
There is an issue when memcg unregisters events that were attached to the same eventfd: - On the first call mem_cgroup_usage_unregister_event() removes all events attached to a given eventfd, and if there were no events left, thresholds->primary would become NULL; - Since there were several events registered, cgroups core will call mem_cgroup_usage_unregister_event() again, but now kernel will oops, as the function doesn't expect that threshold->primary may be NULL. That's a good question whether mem_cgroup_usage_unregister_event() should actually remove all events in one go, but nowadays it can't do any better as cftype->unregister_event callback doesn't pass any private event-associated cookie. So, let's fix the issue by simply checking for threshold->primary.

2012-02-08mm: compaction: check for overlapping nodes during isolation for migrationMel Gorman
When isolating pages for migration, migration starts at the start of a zone while the free scanner starts at the end of the zone. Migration avoids entering a new zone by never going beyond the free scanned. Unfortunately, in very rare cases nodes can overlap. When this happens, migration isolates pages without the LRU lock held, corrupting lists which will trigger errors in reclaim or during page free such as in the following oops BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000000000000008 IP: [<ffffffff810f795c>] free_pcppages_bulk+0xcc/0x450 PGD 1dda554067 PUD 1e1cb58067 PMD 0 Oops: 0000 [#1] SMP CPU 37 Pid: 17088, comm: memcg_process_s Tainted: G X RIP: free_pcppages_bulk+0xcc/0x450 Process memcg_process_s (pid: 17088, threadinfo ffff881c2926e000, task ffff881c2926c0c0) Call Trace: free_hot_cold_page+0x17e/0x1f0 __pagevec_free+0x90/0xb0 release_pages+0x22a/0x260 pagevec_lru_move_fn+0xf3/0x110 putback_lru_page+0x66/0xe0 unmap_and_move+0x156/0x180 migrate_pages+0x9e/0x1b0 compact_zone+0x1f3/0x2f0 compact_zone_order+0xa2/0xe0 try_to_compact_pages+0xdf/0x110 __alloc_pages_direct_compact+0xee/0x1c0 __alloc_pages_slowpath+0x370/0x830 __alloc_pages_nodemask+0x1b1/0x1c0 alloc_pages_vma+0x9b/0x160 do_huge_pmd_anonymous_page+0x160/0x270 do_page_fault+0x207/0x4c0 page_fault+0x25/0x30 The "X" in the taint flag means that external modules were loaded but but is unrelated to the bug triggering.

2012-02-03mm: compaction: check pfn_valid when entering a new MAX_ORDER_NR_PAGES block ↵Mel Gorman
during isolation for migration When isolating for migration, migration starts at the start of a zone which is not necessarily pageblock aligned. Further, it stops isolating when COMPACT_CLUSTER_MAX pages are isolated so migrate_pfn is generally not aligned. This allows isolate_migratepages() to call pfn_to_page() on an invalid PFN which can result in a crash. This was originally reported against a 3.0-based kernel with the following trace in a crash dump.

BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at 01c00008 IP: [<c0522399>] isolate_migratepages+0x119/0x390 *pdpt = 000000002f7ce001 *pde = 0000000000000000 It is expected that it also affects 3.2.x and current mainline. The problem is that pfn_valid is only called on the first PFN being checked and that PFN is not necessarily aligned. Lets say we have a case like this H = MAX_ORDER_NR_PAGES boundary | = pageblock boundary m = cc->migrate_pfn f = cc->free_pfn o = memory hole H------|------H------|----m-Hoooooo|ooooooH-f----|------H The migrate_pfn is just below a memory hole and the free scanner is beyond the hole. When isolate_migratepages started, it scans from migrate_pfn to migrate_pfn+pageblock_nr_pages which is now in a memory hole. It checks pfn_valid() on the first PFN but then scans into the hole where there are not necessarily valid struct pages. This patch ensures that isolate_migratepages calls pfn_valid when necessary.

2012-02-03readahead: fix pipeline break caused by block plugShaohua Li
Herbert Poetzl reported a performance regression since 2.6.39. The test is a simple dd read, but with big block size. The reason is: T1: ra (A, A+128k), (A+128k, A+256k) T2: lock_page for page A, submit the 256k T3: hit page A+128K, ra (A+256k, A+384). the range isn't submitted because of plug and there isn't any lock_page till we hit page A+256k because all pages from A to A+256k is in memory T4: hit page A+256k, ra (A+384, A+ 512). Because of plug, the range isn't submitted again. T5: lock_page A+256k, so (A+256k, A+512k) will be submitted. The task is waitting for (A+256k, A+512k) finish. There is no request to disk in T3 and T4, so readahead pipeline breaks. We really don't need block plug for generic_file_aio_read() for buffered I/O. The readahead already has plug and has fine grained control when I/O should be submitted. Deleting plug for buffered I/O fixes the regression. One side effect is plug makes the request size 256k, the size is 128k without it. This is because default ra size is 128k and not a reason we need plug here. Vivek said: : We submit some readahead IO to device request queue but because of nested : plug, queue never gets unplugged. When read logic reaches a page which is : not in page cache, it waits for page to be read from the disk : (lock_page_killable()) and that time we flush the plug list. : : So effectively read ahead logic is kind of broken in parts because of : nested plugging. Removing top level plug (generic_file_aio_read()) for : buffered reads, will allow unplugging queue earlier for readahead.

Fix a race condition that shows in conjunction with xip_file_fault() when two threads of the same user process fault on the same memory page. In this case, the race winner will install the page table entry and the unlucky loser will cause an oops: xip_file_fault calls vm_insert_pfn (via vm_insert_mixed) which drops out at this check: retval = -EBUSY; if (!pte_none(*pte)) goto out_unlock; The resulting -EBUSY return value will trigger a BUG_ON() in xip_file_fault. This fix simply considers the fault as fixed in this case, because the race winner has successfully installed the pte.

2012-01-23mm: fix rss count leakage during migrationKonstantin Khlebnikov
Memory migration fills a pte with a migration entry and it doesn't update the rss counters. Then it replaces the migration entry with the new page (or the old one if migration failed).

2012-01-23SHM_UNLOCK: fix Unevictable pages stranded after swapHugh Dickins
Commit cc39c6a9bbde ("mm: account skipped entries to avoid looping in find_get_pages") correctly fixed an infinite loop; but left a problem that find_get_pages() on shmem would return 0 (appearing to callers to mean end of tree) when it meets a run of nr_pages swap entries. The only uses of find_get_pages() on shmem are via pagevec_lookup(), called from invalidate_mapping_pages(), and from shmctl SHM_UNLOCK's scan_mapping_unevictable_pages(). The first is already commented, and not worth worrying about; but the second can leave pages on the Unevictable list after an unusual sequence of swapping and locking. Fix that by using shmem_find_get_pages_and_swap() (then ignoring the swap) instead of pagevec_lookup(). But I don't want to contaminate vmscan.c with shmem internals, nor shmem.c with LRU locking. So move scan_mapping_unevictable_pages() into shmem.c, renaming it shmem_unlock_mapping(); and rename check_move_unevictable_page() to check_move_unevictable_pages(), looping down an array of pages, oftentimes under the same lock. Leave out the "rotate unevictable list" block: that's a leftover from when this was used for /proc/sys/vm/scan_unevictable_pages, whose flawed handling involved looking at pages at tail of LRU. Was there significance to the sequence first ClearPageUnevictable, then test page_evictable, then SetPageUnevictable here? I think not, we're under LRU lock, and have no barriers between those.

2012-01-23SHM_UNLOCK: fix long unpreemptible sectionHugh Dickins
scan_mapping_unevictable_pages() is used to make SysV SHM_LOCKed pages evictable again once the shared memory is unlocked. It does this with pagevec_lookup()s across the whole object (which might occupy most of memory), and takes 300ms to unlock 7GB here. A cond_resched() every PAGEVEC_SIZE pages would be good. However, KOSAKI-san points out that this is called under shmem.c's info->lock, and it's also under shm.c's shm_lock(), both spinlocks. There is no strong reason for that: we need to take these pages off the unevictable list soonish, but those locks are not required for it. So move the call to scan_mapping_unevictable_pages() from shmem.c's unlock handling up to shm.c's unlock handling. Remove the recently added barrier, not needed now we have spin_unlock() before the scan. Use get_file(), with subsequent fput(), to make sure we have a reference to mapping throughout scan_mapping_unevictable_pages(): that's something that was previously guaranteed by the shm_lock(). Remove shmctl's lru_add_drain_all(): we don't fault in pages at SHM_LOCK time, and we lazily discover them to be Unevictable later, so it serves no purpose for SHM_LOCK; and serves no purpose for SHM_UNLOCK, since pages still on pagevec are not marked Unevictable. The original code avoided redundant rescans by checking VM_LOCKED flag at its level: now avoid them by checking shp's SHM_LOCKED. The original code called scan_mapping_unevictable_pages() on a locked area at shm_destroy() time: perhaps we once had accounting cross-checks which required that, but not now, so skip the overhead and just let inode eviction deal with them. Put check_move_unevictable_page() and scan_mapping_unevictable_pages() under CONFIG_SHMEM (with stub for the TINY case when ramfs is used), more as comment than to save space; comment them used for SHM_UNLOCK.

2012-01-23mm: memcg: update the correct soft limit tree during migrationJohannes Weiner
end_migration() passes the old page instead of the new page to commit the charge. This page descriptor is not used for committing itself, though, since we also pass the (correct) page_cgroup descriptor. But it's used to find the soft limit tree through the page's zone, so the soft limit tree of the old page's zone is updated instead of that of the new page's, which might get slightly out of date until the next charge reaches the ratelimit point. This glitch has been present since 5564e88 ("memcg: condense page_cgroup-to-page lookup points"). This fixes a bug that I introduced in 2.6.38.

According to the boot log this page is marked reserved: e820 update range: 0000000000000000 - 0000000000010000 (usable) ==> (reserved) and early_node_map confirms that: early_node_map[3] active PFN ranges 1: 0x00000010 -> 0x0000009c 1: 0x00000100 -> 0x000bffa3 1: 0x00100000 -> 0x00240000 The problem is that memory_present works in PAGE_SECTION_MASK aligned blocks so the reserved range sneaks into the the section as well. This also means that free_area_init_node will not take care of those reserved pages and they stay uninitialized. When we try to read the removable status we walk through all available sections and hope that the zone is valid for all pages in the section. But this is not true in this case as the zone and nid are not initialized. We have only one node in this particular case and it is marked as node=1 (rather than 0) and that made the problem visible because page_to_nid will return 0 and there are no zones on the node. Let's check that the zone is valid and that the given pfn falls into its boundaries and mark the section not removable. This might cause some false positives, probably, but we do not have any sane way to find out whether the page is reserved by the platform or it is just not used for whatever other reasons.

To avoid underflow in the allocator loop, it simply raised the lower boundary to the requested size under the assumption that requested size would be far smaller than available memblocks.

2012-01-12mm: take pagevecs off reclaim stackHugh Dickins
Replace pagevecs in putback_lru_pages() and move_active_pages_to_lru() by lists of pages_to_free: then apply Konstantin Khlebnikov's free_hot_cold_page_list() to them instead of pagevec_release(). Which simplifies the flow (no need to drop and retake lock whenever pagevec fills up) and reduces stale addresses in stack backtraces (which often showed through the pagevecs); but more importantly, removes another 120 bytes from the deepest stacks in page reclaim. Although I've not recently seen an actual stack overflow here with a vanilla kernel, move_active_pages_to_lru() has often featured in deep backtraces. However, free_hot_cold_page_list() does not handle compound pages (nor need it: a Transparent HugePage would have been split by the time it reaches the call in shrink_page_list()), but it is possible for putback_lru_pages() or move_active_pages_to_lru() to be left holding the last reference on a THP, so must exclude the unlikely compound case before putting on pages_to_free. Remove pagevec_strip(), its work now done in move_active_pages_to_lru(). The pagevec in scan_mapping_unevictable_pages() remains in mm/vmscan.c, but that is never on the reclaim path, and cannot be replaced by a list.

2012-01-12memcg: fix split_huge_page_refcounts()Hugh Dickins
This patch started off as a cleanup: __split_huge_page_refcounts() has to cope with two scenarios, when the hugepage being split is already on LRU, and when it is not; but why does it have to split that accounting across three different sites? Consolidate it in lru_add_page_tail(), handling evictable and unevictable alike, and use standard add_page_to_lru_list() when accounting is needed (when the head is not yet on LRU). But a recent regression in -next, I guess the removal of PageCgroupAcctLRU test from mem_cgroup_split_huge_fixup(), makes this now a necessary fix: under load, the MEM_CGROUP_ZSTAT count was wrapping to a huge number, messing up reclaim calculations and causing a freeze at rmdir of cgroup. Add a VM_BUG_ON to mem_cgroup_lru_del_list() when we're about to wrap that count - this has not been the only such incident.

2012-01-12mm: vmscan: check if reclaim should really abort even if compaction_ready() ↵Mel Gorman
is true for one zone If compaction can proceed for a given zone, shrink_zones() does not reclaim any more pages from it. After commit [e0c2327: vmscan: abort reclaim/compaction if compaction can proceed], do_try_to_free_pages() tries to finish as soon as possible once one zone can compact. This was intended to prevent slabs being shrunk unnecessarily but there are side-effects. One is that a small zone that is ready for compaction will abort reclaim even if the chances of successfully allocating a THP from that zone is small. It also means that reclaim can return too early even though sc->nr_to_reclaim pages were not reclaimed. This partially reverts the commit until it is proven that slabs are really being shrunk unnecessarily but preserves the check to return 1 to avoid OOM if reclaim was aborted prematurely.

2012-01-12mm: vmscan: when reclaiming for compaction, ensure there are sufficient free ↵Mel Gorman
pages available In commit e0887c19 ("vmscan: limit direct reclaim for higher order allocations"), Rik noted that reclaim was too aggressive when THP was enabled. In his initial patch he used the number of free pages to decide if reclaim should abort for compaction. My feedback was that reclaim and compaction should be using the same logic when deciding if reclaim should be aborted. Unfortunately, this had the effect of reducing THP success rates when the workload included something like streaming reads that continually allocated pages. The window during which compaction could run and return a THP was too small. This patch combines Rik's two patches together. compaction_suitable() is still used to decide if reclaim should be aborted to allow compaction is used. However, it will also ensure that there is a reasonable buffer of free pages available. This improves upon the THP allocation success rates but bounds the number of pages that are freed for compaction.

2012-01-12mm: compaction: introduce sync-light migration for use by compactionMel Gorman
This patch adds a lightweight sync migrate operation MIGRATE_SYNC_LIGHT mode that avoids writing back pages to backing storage. Async compaction maps to MIGRATE_ASYNC while sync compaction maps to MIGRATE_SYNC_LIGHT. For other migrate_pages users such as memory hotplug, MIGRATE_SYNC is used. This avoids sync compaction stalling for an excessive length of time, particularly when copying files to a USB stick where there might be a large number of dirty pages backed by a filesystem that does not support ->writepages.

2012-01-12mm: page allocator: do not call direct reclaim for THP allocations while ↵Mel Gorman
compaction is deferred If compaction is deferred, direct reclaim is used to try to free enough pages for the allocation to succeed. For small high-orders, this has a reasonable chance of success. However, if the caller has specified __GFP_NO_KSWAPD to limit the disruption to the system, it makes more sense to fail the allocation rather than stall the caller in direct reclaim. This patch skips direct reclaim if compaction is deferred and the caller specifies __GFP_NO_KSWAPD. Async compaction only considers a subset of pages so it is possible for compaction to be deferred prematurely and not enter direct reclaim even in cases where it should. To compensate for this, this patch also defers compaction only if sync compaction failed.

2012-01-12mm: compaction: make isolate_lru_page() filter-aware againMel Gorman
Commit 39deaf85 ("mm: compaction: make isolate_lru_page() filter-aware") noted that compaction does not migrate dirty or writeback pages and that is was meaningless to pick the page and re-add it to the LRU list. This had to be partially reverted because some dirty pages can be migrated by compaction without blocking. This patch updates "mm: compaction: make isolate_lru_page" by skipping over pages that migration has no possibility of migrating to minimise LRU disruption.

2012-01-12mm: compaction: determine if dirty pages can be migrated without blocking ↵Mel Gorman
within ->migratepage Asynchronous compaction is used when allocating transparent hugepages to avoid blocking for long periods of time. Due to reports of stalling, there was a debate on disabling synchronous compaction but this severely impacted allocation success rates. Part of the reason was that many dirty pages are skipped in asynchronous compaction by the following check; if (PageDirty(page) && !sync && mapping->a_ops->migratepage != migrate_page) rc = -EBUSY; This skips over all mapping aops using buffer_migrate_page() even though it is possible to migrate some of these pages without blocking. This patch updates the ->migratepage callback with a "sync" parameter. It is the responsibility of the callback to fail gracefully if migration would block.

2012-01-12mm: vmscan: do not OOM if aborting reclaim to start compactionMel Gorman
During direct reclaim it is possible that reclaim will be aborted so that compaction can be attempted to satisfy a high-order allocation. If this decision is made before any pages are reclaimed, it is possible that 0 is returned to the page allocator potentially triggering an OOM. This has not been observed but it is a possibility so this patch addresses it.
