2013-01-16Tell the world we gave up on pushing CC_OPTIMIZE_FOR_SIZEKirill Smelkov
In commit 281dc5c5ec0f ("Give up on pushing CC_OPTIMIZE_FOR_SIZE") we already changed the actual default value, but the help-text still suggested 'y'. Fix the help text too, for all the same reasons. Sadly, -Os keeps on generating some very suboptimal code for certain cases, to the point where any I$ miss upside is swamped by the downside. The main ones are: - using "rep movsb" for memcpy, even on CPU's where that is horrendously bad for performance. - not honoring branch prediction information, so any I$ footprint you win from smaller code, you lose from less code density in the I$. - using divide instructions when that is very expensive.

2012-12-26Ensure that kernel_init_freeable() is not inlined into non __init codeVineet Gupta
Commit d6b2123802d "make sure that we always have a return path from kernel_execve()" reshuffled kernel_init()/init_post() to ensure that kernel_execve() has a caller to return to. It removed __init annotation for kernel_init() and introduced/calls a new routine kernel_init_freeable(). Latter however is inlined by any reasonable compiler (ARC gcc 4.4 in this case), causing slight code bloat.

2012-12-18memcg: infrastructure to match an allocation to the right cacheGlauber Costa
The page allocator is able to bind a page to a memcg when it is allocated. But for the caches, we'd like to have as many objects as possible in a page belonging to the same cache. This is done in this patch by calling memcg_kmem_get_cache in the beginning of every allocation function. This function is patched out by static branches when kernel memory controller is not being used. It assumes that the task allocating, which determines the memcg in the page allocator, belongs to the same cgroup throughout the whole process. Misaccounting can happen if the task calls memcg_kmem_get_cache() while belonging to a cgroup, and later on changes. This is considered acceptable, and should only happen upon task migration. Before the cache is created by the memcg core, there is also a possible imbalance: the task belongs to a memcg, but the cache being allocated from is the global cache, since the child cache is not yet guaranteed to be ready. This case is also fine, since in this case the GFP_KMEMCG will not be passed and the page allocator will not attempt any cgroup accounting.

2012-12-18memcg: kmem accounting basic infrastructureGlauber Costa
Add the basic infrastructure for the accounting of kernel memory. To control that, the following files are created: * memory.kmem.usage_in_bytes * memory.kmem.limit_in_bytes * memory.kmem.failcnt * memory.kmem.max_usage_in_bytes They have the same meaning of their user memory counterparts. They reflect the state of the "kmem" res_counter. Per cgroup kmem memory accounting is not enabled until a limit is set for the group. Once the limit is set the accounting cannot be disabled for that group. This means that after the patch is applied, no behavioral changes exists for whoever is still using memcg to control their memory usage, until memory.kmem.limit_in_bytes is set for the first time. We always account to both user and kernel resource_counters. This effectively means that an independent kernel limit is in place when the limit is set to a lower value than the user memory. A equal or higher value means that the user limit will always hit first, meaning that kmem is effectively unlimited. People who want to track kernel memory but not limit it, can set this limit to a very high number (like RESOURCE_MAX - 1page - that no one will ever hit, or equal to the user memory) [akpm@linux-foundation.org: MEMCG_MMEM only works with slab and slub] Signed-off-by: Glauber Costa <glommer@parallels.com> Acked-by: Kamezawa Hiroyuki <kamezawa.hiroyu@jp.fujitsu.com> Acked-by: Michal Hocko <mhocko@suse.cz> Cc: Johannes Weiner <hannes@cmpxchg.org> Cc: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org> Cc: Christoph Lameter <cl@linux.com> Cc: David Rientjes <rientjes@google.com> Cc: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@redhat.com> Cc: Greg Thelen <gthelen@google.com> Cc: JoonSoo Kim <js1304@gmail.com> Cc: Mel Gorman <mel@csn.ul.ie> Cc: Pekka Enberg <penberg@cs.helsinki.fi> Cc: Rik van Riel <riel@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/ebiederm/user-namespace Pull user namespace changes from Eric Biederman: "While small this set of changes is very significant with respect to containers in general and user namespaces in particular. The user space interface is now complete. This set of changes adds support for unprivileged users to create user namespaces and as a user namespace root to create other namespaces. The tyranny of supporting suid root preventing unprivileged users from using cool new kernel features is broken. This set of changes completes the work on setns, adding support for the pid, user, mount namespaces. This set of changes includes a bunch of basic pid namespace cleanups/simplifications. Of particular significance is the rework of the pid namespace cleanup so it no longer requires sending out tendrils into all kinds of unexpected cleanup paths for operation. At least one case of broken error handling is fixed by this cleanup. The files under /proc/<pid>/ns/ have been converted from regular files to magic symlinks which prevents incorrect caching by the VFS, ensuring the files always refer to the namespace the process is currently using and ensuring that the ptrace_mayaccess permission checks are always applied. The files under /proc/<pid>/ns/ have been given stable inode numbers so it is now possible to see if different processes share the same namespaces. Through the David Miller's net tree are changes to relax many of the permission checks in the networking stack to allowing the user namespace root to usefully use the networking stack. Similar changes for the mount namespace and the pid namespace are coming through my tree. Two small changes to add user namespace support were commited here adn in David Miller's -net tree so that I could complete the work on the /proc/<pid>/ns/ files in this tree. Work remains to make it safe to build user namespaces and 9p, afs, ceph, cifs, coda, gfs2, ncpfs, nfs, nfsd, ocfs2, and xfs so the Kconfig guard remains in place preventing that user namespaces from being built when any of those filesystems are enabled.

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/mel/linux-balancenuma Pull Automatic NUMA Balancing bare-bones from Mel Gorman: "There are three implementations for NUMA balancing, this tree (balancenuma), numacore which has been developed in tip/master and autonuma which is in aa.git. In almost all respects balancenuma is the dumbest of the three because its main impact is on the VM side with no attempt to be smart about scheduling. In the interest of getting the ball rolling, it would be desirable to see this much merged for 3.8 with the view to building scheduler smarts on top and adapting the VM where required for 3.9. The most recent set of comparisons available from different people are mel: https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/12/9/108 mingo: https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/12/7/331 tglx: https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/12/10/437 srikar: https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/12/10/397 The results are a mixed bag. In my own tests, balancenuma does reasonably well. It's dumb as rocks and does not regress against mainline. On the other hand, Ingo's tests shows that balancenuma is incapable of converging for this workloads driven by perf which is bad but is potentially explained by the lack of scheduler smarts. Thomas' results show balancenuma improves on mainline but falls far short of numacore or autonuma. Srikar's results indicate we all suffer on a large machine with imbalanced node sizes. My own testing showed that recent numacore results have improved dramatically, particularly in the last week but not universally. We've butted heads heavily on system CPU usage and high levels of migration even when it shows that overall performance is better. There are also cases where it regresses. Of interest is that for specjbb in some configurations it will regress for lower numbers of warehouses and show gains for higher numbers which is not reported by the tool by default and sometimes missed in treports. Recently I reported for numacore that the JVM was crashing with NullPointerExceptions but currently it's unclear what the source of this problem is. Initially I thought it was in how numacore batch handles PTEs but I'm no longer think this is the case. It's possible numacore is just able to trigger it due to higher rates of migration.

Once a pte or pmd has been set as pte_numa or pmd_numa, the next time a thread touches a virtual address in the corresponding virtual range, a NUMA hinting page fault will trigger. The NUMA hinting page fault will clear the NUMA bit and set the present bit again to resolve the page fault.

When combined with a partition number within the table, this can form a unique ID similar in concept to EFI/GPT's partition UUID.

2012-11-23init: reduce PARTUUID min length to 1 from 36Stephen Warren
Reduce the minimum length for a root=PARTUUID= parameter to be considered valid from 36 to 1. EFI/GPT partition UUIDs are always exactly 36 characters long, hence the previous limit. However, the next patch will support DOS/MBR UUIDs too, which have a different, shorter, format. Instead of validating any particular length, just ensure that at least some non-empty value was given by the user. Also, consider a missing UUID value to be a parsing error, in the same vein as if /PARTNROFF exists and can't be parsed. As such, make both error cases print a message and disable rootwait.

2012-11-23block: store partition_meta_info.uuid as a stringStephen Warren
This will allow other types of UUID to be stored here, aside from true UUIDs. This also simplifies code that uses this field, since it's usually constructed from a, used as a, or compared to other, strings. Note: A simplistic approach here would be to set uuid_str[36]=0 whenever a /PARTNROFF option was found to be present. However, this modifies the input string, and causes subsequent calls to devt_from_partuuid() not to see the /PARTNROFF option, which causes different results.

2012-11-20proc: Usable inode numbers for the namespace file descriptors.Eric W. Biederman
Assign a unique proc inode to each namespace, and use that inode number to ensure we only allocate at most one proc inode for every namespace in proc. A single proc inode per namespace allows userspace to test to see if two processes are in the same namespace. This has been a long requested feature and only blocked because a naive implementation would put the id in a global space and would ultimately require having a namespace for the names of namespaces, making migration and certain virtualization tricks impossible. We still don't have per superblock inode numbers for proc, which appears necessary for application unaware checkpoint/restart and migrations (if the application is using namespace file descriptors) but that is now allowd by the design if it becomes important. I have preallocated the ipc and uts initial proc inode numbers so their structures can be statically initialized. Signed-off-by: Eric W. Biederman <ebiederm@xmission.com>
2012-11-19pidns: Consolidate initialzation of special init task stateEric W. Biederman
Instead of setting child_reaper and SIGNAL_UNKILLABLE one way for the system init process, and another way for pid namespace init processes test pid->nr == 1 and use the same code for both. For the global init this results in SIGNAL_UNKILLABLE being set much earlier in the initialization process. This is a small cleanup and it paves the way for allowing unshare and enter of the pid namespace as that path like our global init also will not set CLONE_NEWPID. Signed-off-by: Eric W.

2012-11-16rcu: Add callback-free CPUsPaul E. McKenney
RCU callback execution can add significant OS jitter and also can degrade both scheduling latency and, in asymmetric multiprocessors, energy efficiency. This commit therefore adds the ability for selected CPUs ("rcu_nocbs=" boot parameter) to have their callbacks offloaded to kthreads. If the "rcu_nocb_poll" boot parameter is also specified, these kthreads will do polling, removing the need for the offloaded CPUs to do wakeups. At least one CPU must be doing normal callback processing: currently CPU 0 cannot be selected as a no-CBs CPU. In addition, attempts to offline the last normal-CBs CPU will fail. This feature was inspired by Jim Houston's and Joe Korty's JRCU, and this commit includes fixes to problems located by Fengguang Wu's kbuild test robot.

2012-11-14userns: Support fuse interacting with multiple user namespacesEric W. Biederman
Use kuid_t and kgid_t in struct fuse_conn and struct fuse_mount_data. The connection between between a fuse filesystem and a fuse daemon is established when a fuse filesystem is mounted and provided with a file descriptor the fuse daemon created by opening /dev/fuse. For now restrict the communication of uids and gids between the fuse filesystem and the fuse daemon to the initial user namespace. Enforce this by verifying the file descriptor passed to the mount of fuse was opened in the initial user namespace. Ensuring the mount happens in the initial user namespace is not necessary as mounts from non-initial user namespaces are not yet allowed. In fuse_req_init_context convert the currrent fsuid and fsgid into the initial user namespace for the request that will be sent to the fuse daemon. In fuse_fill_attr convert the uid and gid passed from the fuse daemon from the initial user namespace into kuids and kgids. In iattr_to_fattr called from fuse_setattr convert kuids and kgids into the uids and gids in the initial user namespace before passing them to the fuse filesystem. In fuse_change_attributes_common called from fuse_dentry_revalidate, fuse_permission, fuse_geattr, and fuse_setattr, and fuse_iget convert the uid and gid from the fuse daemon into a kuid and a kgid to store on the fuse inode. By default fuse mounts are restricted to task whose uid, suid, and euid matches the fuse user_id and whose gid, sgid, and egid matches the fuse group id. Convert the user_id and group_id mount options into kuids and kgids at mount time, and use uid_eq and gid_eq to compare the in fuse_allow_task.

2012-11-14userns: Support autofs4 interacing with multiple user namespacesEric W. Biederman
Use kuid_t and kgid_t in struct autofs_info and struct autofs_wait_queue. When creating directories and symlinks default the uid and gid of the mount requester to the global root uid and gid. autofs4_wait will update these fields when a mount is requested. When generating autofsv5 packets report the uid and gid of the mount requestor in user namespace of the process that opened the pipe, reporting unmapped uids and gids as overflowuid and overflowgid. In autofs_dev_ioctl_requester return the uid and gid of the last mount requester converted into the calling processes user namespace. When the uid or gid don't map return overflowuid and overflowgid as appropriate, allowing failure to find a mount requester to be distinguished from failure to map a mount requester. The uid and gid mount options specifying the user and group of the root autofs inode are converted into kuid and kgid as they are parsed defaulting to the current uid and current gid of the process that mounts autofs. Mounting of autofs for the present remains confined to processes in the initial user namespace.

2012-10-30x86-64/efi: Use EFI to deal with platform wall clock (again)Jan Beulich
Other than ix86, x86-64 on EFI so far didn't set the {g,s}et_wallclock accessors to the EFI routines, thus incorrectly using raw RTC accesses instead. Simply removing the #ifdef around the respective code isn't enough, however: While so far early get-time calls were done in physical mode, this doesn't work properly for x86-64, as virtual addresses would still need to be set up for all runtime regions (which wasn't the case on the system I have access to), so instead the patch moves the call to efi_enter_virtual_mode() ahead (which in turn allows to drop all code related to calling efi-get-time in physical mode). Additionally the earlier calling of efi_set_executable() requires the CPA code to cope, i.e. during early boot it must be avoided to call cpa_flush_array(), as the first thing this function does is a BUG_ON(irqs_disabled()). Also make the two EFI functions in question here static - they're not being referenced elsewhere. History: This commit was originally merged as bacef661acdb ("x86-64/efi: Use EFI to deal with platform wall clock") but it resulted in some ASUS machines no longer booting due to a firmware bug, and so was reverted in f026cfa82f62. A pre-emptive fix for the buggy ASUS firmware was merged in 03a1c254975e ("x86, efi: 1:1 pagetable mapping for virtual EFI calls") so now this patch can be reapplied.

2012-10-12vfs: allocate page instead of names_cache buffer in mount_block_rootJeff Layton
First, it's incorrect to call putname() after __getname_gfp() since the bare __getname_gfp() call skips the auditing code, while putname() doesn't. mount_block_root allocates a PATH_MAX buffer via __getname_gfp, and then calls get_fs_names to fill the buffer. That function can call get_filesystem_list which assumes that that buffer is a full page in size. On arches where PAGE_SIZE != 4k, then this could potentially overrun. In practice, it's hard to imagine the list of filesystem names even approaching 4k, but it's best to be safe. Just allocate a page for this purpose instead. With this, we can also remove the __getname_gfp() definition since there are no more callers. Signed-off-by: Jeff Layton <jlayton@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>

2012-10-10MODSIGN: Implement module signature checkingDavid Howells
Check the signature on the module against the keys compiled into the kernel or available in a hardware key store. Currently, only RSA keys are supported - though that's easy enough to change, and the signature is expected to contain raw components (so not a PGP or PKCS#7 formatted blob). The signature blob is expected to consist of the following pieces in order: (1) The binary identifier for the key. This is expected to match the SubjectKeyIdentifier from an X.509 certificate. Only X.509 type identifiers are currently supported. (2) The signature data, consisting of a series of MPIs in which each is in the format of a 2-byte BE word sizes followed by the content data. (3) A 12 byte information block of the form: struct module_signature { enum pkey_algo algo : 8; enum pkey_hash_algo hash : 8; enum pkey_id_type id_type : 8; u8 __pad; __be32 id_length; __be32 sig_length; }; The three enums are defined in crypto/public_key.h. 'algo' contains the public-key algorithm identifier (0->DSA, 1->RSA). 'hash' contains the digest algorithm identifier (0->MD4, 1->MD5, 2->SHA1, etc.). 'id_type' contains the public-key identifier type (0->PGP, 1->X.509). '__pad' should be 0. 'id_length' should contain in the binary identifier length in BE form. 'sig_length' should contain in the signature data length in BE form. The lengths are in BE order rather than CPU order to make dealing with cross-compilation easier.

Add a simple ASN.1 grammar compiler. This produces a bytecode output that can be fed to a decoder to inform the decoder how to interpret the ASN.1 stream it is trying to parse. Action functions can be specified in the grammar by interpolating: ({ foo }) after a type, for example: SubjectPublicKeyInfo ::= SEQUENCE { algorithm AlgorithmIdentifier, subjectPublicKey BIT STRING ({ do_key_data }) } The decoder is expected to call these after matching this type and parsing the contents if it is a constructed type. The grammar compiler does not currently support the SET type (though it does support SET OF) as I can't see a good way of tracking which members have been encountered yet without using up extra stack space. Currently, the grammar compiler will fail if more than 256 bytes of bytecode would be produced or more than 256 actions have been specified as it uses 8-bit jump values and action indices to keep space usage down.

This allows the code to code to compile with user namespaces enabled and removes the assumption there is only the initial user namespace. Everything is converted except for the most complex of the filesystems: autofs4, 9p, afs, ceph, cifs, coda, fuse, gfs2, ncpfs, nfs, ocfs2 and xfs as those patches need a bit more review. The strategy is to push kuid_t and kgid_t values are far down into subsystems and filesystems as reasonable. Leaving the make_kuid and from_kuid operations to happen at the edge of userspace, as the values come off the disk, and as the values come in from the network. Letting compile type incompatible compile errors (present when user namespaces are enabled) guide me to find the issues. The most tricky areas have been the places where we had an implicit union of uid and gid values and were storing them in an unsigned int. Those places were converted into explicit unions. I made certain to handle those places with simple trivial patches. Out of that work I discovered we have generic interfaces for storing quota by projid. I had never heard of the project identifiers before. Adding full user namespace support for project identifiers accounts for most of the code size growth in my git tree. Ultimately there will be work to relax privlige checks from "capable(FOO)" to "ns_capable(user_ns, FOO)" where it is safe allowing root in a user names to do those things that today we only forbid to non-root users because it will confuse suid root applications. While I was pushing kuid_t and kgid_t changes deep into the audit code I made a few other cleanups. I capitalized on the fact we process netlink messages in the context of the message sender. I removed usage of NETLINK_CRED, and started directly using current->tty. Some of these patches have also made it into maintainer trees, with no problems from identical code from different trees showing up in linux-next.
