2012-11-09revert "epoll: support for disabling items, and a self-test app"Andrew Morton
Revert commit 03a7beb55b9f ("epoll: support for disabling items, and a self-test app") pending resolution of the issues identified by Michael Kerrisk, copied below. We'll revisit this for 3.8. : I've taken a look at this patch as it currently stands in 3.7-rc1, and : done a bit of testing. (By the way, the test program : tools/testing/selftests/epoll/test_epoll.c does not compile...) : : There are one or two places where the behavior seems a little strange, : so I have a question or two at the end of this mail. But other than : that, I want to check my understanding so that the interface can be : correctly documented. : : Just to go though my understanding, the problem is the following : scenario in a multithreaded application: : : 1. Multiple threads are performing epoll_wait() operations, : and maintaining a user-space cache that contains information : corresponding to each file descriptor being monitored by : epoll_wait(). : : 2. At some point, a thread wants to delete (EPOLL_CTL_DEL) : a file descriptor from the epoll interest list, and : delete the corresponding record from the user-space cache. : : 3. The problem with (2) is that some other thread may have : previously done an epoll_wait() that retrieved information : about the fd in question, and may be in the middle of using : information in the cache that relates to that fd. Thus, : there is a potential race. : : 4. The race can't solved purely in user space, because doing : so would require applying a mutex across the epoll_wait() : call, which would of course blow thread concurrency. : : Right? : : Your solution is the EPOLL_CTL_DISABLE operation. I want to : confirm my understanding about how to use this flag, since : the description that has accompanied the patches so far : has been a bit sparse : : 0. In the scenario you're concerned about, deleting a file : descriptor means (safely) doing the following: : (a) Deleting the file descriptor from the epoll interest list : using EPOLL_CTL_DEL : (b) Deleting the corresponding record in the user-space cache : : 1. It's only meaningful to use this EPOLL_CTL_DISABLE in : conjunction with EPOLLONESHOT. : : 2. Using EPOLL_CTL_DISABLE without using EPOLLONESHOT in : conjunction is a logical error. : : 3. The correct way to code multithreaded applications using : EPOLL_CTL_DISABLE and EPOLLONESHOT is as follows: : : a. All EPOLL_CTL_ADD and EPOLL_CTL_MOD operations should : should EPOLLONESHOT. : : b. When a thread wants to delete a file descriptor, it : should do the following: : : [1] Call epoll_ctl(EPOLL_CTL_DISABLE) : [2] If the return status from epoll_ctl(EPOLL_CTL_DISABLE) : was zero, then the file descriptor can be safely : deleted by the thread that made this call. : [3] If the epoll_ctl(EPOLL_CTL_DISABLE) fails with EBUSY, : then the descriptor is in use. In this case, the calling : thread should set a flag in the user-space cache to : indicate that the thread that is using the descriptor : should perform the deletion operation. : : Is all of the above correct? : : The implementation depends on checking on whether : (events & ~EP_PRIVATE_BITS) == 0 : This replies on the fact that EPOLL_CTL_AD and EPOLL_CTL_MOD always : set EPOLLHUP and EPOLLERR in the 'events' mask, and EPOLLONESHOT : causes those flags (as well as all others in ~EP_PRIVATE_BITS) to be : cleared. : : A corollary to the previous paragraph is that using EPOLL_CTL_DISABLE : is only useful in conjunction with EPOLLONESHOT. However, as things : stand, one can use EPOLL_CTL_DISABLE on a file descriptor that does : not have EPOLLONESHOT set in 'events' This results in the following : (slightly surprising) behavior: : : (a) The first call to epoll_ctl(EPOLL_CTL_DISABLE) returns 0 : (the indicator that the file descriptor can be safely deleted). : (b) The next call to epoll_ctl(EPOLL_CTL_DISABLE) fails with EBUSY. : : This doesn't seem particularly useful, and in fact is probably an : indication that the user made a logic error: they should only be using : epoll_ctl(EPOLL_CTL_DISABLE) on a file descriptor for which : EPOLLONESHOT was set in 'events'. If that is correct, then would it : not make sense to return an error to user space for this case? Cc: Michael Kerrisk <mtk.manpages@gmail.com> Cc: "Paton J.

2012-10-26ktest: Fix ktest confusion with CONFIG_MODULES_USE_ELF_RELASteven Rostedt
In order to decide if ktest should bother installing modules on the target box, it checks if the config file has CONFIG_MODULES=y. But it also checks if the '=y' part exists. It only will install modules if the config exists and is set with '=y'. But as the regex that was used tests: /^CONFIG_MODULES(=y)?/ this will also match: CONFIG_MODULES_USE_ELF_RELA as the '=y' part was optional and it did not test the rest of the line. When this happens, ktest will stop checking the rest of the configs but it will also think that no modules are needed to be installed. What it should do is only jump out of the loop if it actually found a CONFIG_MODULES that is set to true. Otherwise, ktest wont install the necessary modules needed for proper booting of the test target. Signed-off-by: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org>

2012-10-06epoll: support for disabling items, and a self-test appPaton J. Lewis
Enhanced epoll_ctl to support EPOLL_CTL_DISABLE, which disables an epoll item. If epoll_ctl doesn't return -EBUSY in this case, it is then safe to delete the epoll item in a multi-threaded environment.

2012-07-30ktest: Ignore errors it tests if IGNORE_ERRORS is setSteven Rostedt
The option IGNORE_ERRORS is used to allow a test to succeed even if a warning appears from the kernel. Sometimes kernels will produce warnings that are not associated with a test, and the user wants to test something else. The IGNORE_ERRORS works for boot up, but was not preventing test runs to succeed if the kernel produced a warning. Signed-off-by: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org>
2012-07-20ktest: Reset saved min (force) configs for each testSteven Rostedt
The min configs are saved in a perl hash called force_configs, and this hash is used to add configs to the .config file. But it was not being reset between tests and a min config from a previous test would affect the min config of the next test causing undesirable results. Reset the force_config hash at the start of each test. Signed-off-by: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org>
2012-07-19ktest: Add check for bug or panic during rebootSteven Rostedt
Usually the target is booted into a dependable kernel when a test starts. The test will install the test kernel and reboot the box. But there may be a time that the kernel is running an unreliable kernel and the reboot may crash. Have ktest detect crashes on a reboot and force a power-cycle instead. This can usually happen if a test kernel was installed to run manual tests, but the user forgot to reboot to the known good kernel. Signed-off-by: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org>
2012-07-19ktest: Add MAX_MONITOR_WAIT optionSteven Rostedt
If the console is constantly outputting content, this can cause ktest to get stuck waiting on the monitor to settle down. The option MAX_MONITOR_WAIT is the maximum time (in seconds) for ktest to wait for the console to flush. Signed-off-by: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org>
2012-07-19ktest: Fix config bisect with how make oldnoconfig worksSteven Rostedt
With a name like 'oldnoconfig' one may think that the config generated would disable all configs that were not defined (selecting "no" for all options). But this is not the case. It selects the default. If a config has a 'default y', then it is added if not specified. This broke the config bisect, because options not specified by a config will just use the default, where it expected to turn off. This caused an option to be enabled that disabled an option that would break the build. The end result was that we never found the bad config at the end of the test. Instead of using 'make oldnoconfig', ktest now builds the options it expects enabled and disabled. When it turns off an option, it will no longer remove it, but actually set it to: # CONFIG_FOO is not set. Signed-off-by: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org>
2012-07-19ktest: Add CONFIG_BISECT_CHECK optionSteven Rostedt
The config-bisect can take a bad config and bisect it down to find out what config actually breaks the config. But as all tests will apply a minconfig (defined by a user) to apply before booting, it is possible that the minconfig could actually make the bad config work (minconfigs can disable configs). The end result is that the config bisect test will not find a config that breaks. This can be rather frustrating to the user. The CONFIG_BISECT_CHECK option, when set to 1, will make sure that the bad config (with the minconfig applied) still fails before trying to bisect. And yes, I did get burned by this.

2012-05-31syscalls, x86: add __NR_kcmp syscallCyrill Gorcunov
While doing the checkpoint-restore in the user space one need to determine whether various kernel objects (like mm_struct-s of file_struct-s) are shared between tasks and restore this state. The 2nd step can be solved by using appropriate CLONE_ flags and the unshare syscall, while there's currently no ways for solving the 1st one. One of the ways for checking whether two tasks share e.g. mm_struct is to provide some mm_struct ID of a task to its proc file, but showing such info considered to be not that good for security reasons. Thus after some debates we end up in conclusion that using that named 'comparison' syscall might be the best candidate. So here is it -- __NR_kcmp. It takes up to 5 arguments - the pids of the two tasks (which characteristics should be compared), the comparison type and (in case of comparison of files) two file descriptors. Lookups for pids are done in the caller's PID namespace only. At moment only x86 is supported and tested.

2012-05-22ktest: Add USE_OUTPUT_MIN_CONFIG to avoid prompt on make_min_configSteven Rostedt
If the file that OUTPUT_MIN_CONFIG exists then ktest.pl will prompt the user and ask them if the OUTPUT_MIN_CONFIG should be used as the starting point for make_min_config instead of MIN_CONFIG. This is usually the case, and to allow the user to do so, which is helpful if the user is creating different min configs based on tests, and they know one is a superset of another test, they can set USE_OUTPUT_MIN_CONFIG to one, which will prevent kest.pl from prompting to use the OUTPUT_MIN_CONFIG and it will just use it. If USE_OUTPUT_MIN_CONIFG is set to zero, then ktest.pl will continue to use MIN_CONFIG instead. The default is that USE_OUTPUT_MIN_CONFIG is undefined. Signed-off-by: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org>
2012-05-21ktest: Add MIN_CONFIG_TYPE to allow making a minum .config that has networkSteven Rostedt
Add a MIN_CONFIG_TYPE that can be set to 'test' or 'boot'. The default is 'boot' which is what make_min_config has done previously: makes a config file that is the minimum needed to boot the target. But when MIN_CONFIG_TYPE is set to 'test', not only must the target boot, but it must also successfully run the TEST. This allows the creation of a config file that is the minimum to boot and also perform ssh to the target, or anything else a developer wants. Signed-off-by: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org>
2012-05-18ktest: Fix kernelrevision with POST_BUILDSteven Rostedt
The PRE_BUILD and POST_BUILD options of ktest are added to allow the user to add temporary patch to the system and remove it on builds. This is sometimes use to take a change from another git branch and add it to a series without the fix so that this series can be tested, when an unrelated bug exists in the series. The problem comes when a tagged commit is being used. For example, if v3.2 is being tested, and we add a patch to it, the kernelrelease for that commit will be 3.2.0+, but without the patch the version will be 3.2.0. This can cause problems when the kernelrelease is determined for creating the /lib/modules directory. The kernel booting has the '+' but the module directory will not, and the modules will be missing for that boot, and may not allow the kernel to succeed. The fix is to put the creation of the kernelrelease in the POST_BUILD logic, before it applies the POST_BUILD operation. The POST_BUILD is where the patch may be removed, removing the '+' from the kernelrelease. The calculation of the kernelrelease will also stay in its current location but will be ignored if it was already calculated previously. Signed-off-by: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org>
2012-05-01ktest: Fix reboot on success stopping all rebootsSteven Rostedt
The change to let individual tests decide to reboot the machine on success of the entire test also prevented errors from rebooting when an error was detected. The "no_reboot" variable was only cleared if the test had reboot_on_success set. But the no_reboot variable also prevents the test rebooting when an error was detected even when REBOOT_ON_ERROR was set. Add a new "reboot_success" variable that is used to determine if the test should reboot on success and not touch the no_reboot variable. Signed-off-by: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org>
2012-05-01ktest.pl: Fix combined usage of BISECT_REVERSE and BISECT_SKIPRuss Dill
When BISECT_REVERSE and BISECT_SKIP are used together with boot or test testing, build failures are treated as boot or test failures and 'git bisect bad' is executed instead of 'git bisect skip'. This is because the $ret value of -1 is treated as a build failure, but the $reverse_bisect logic does not properly handle this. Simple fix, only invert it if it is positive.

2012-03-28mm: move hugepage test examples to tools/testing/selftests/vmDave Young
hugepage-mmap.c, hugepage-shm.c and map_hugetlb.c in Documentation/vm are simple pass/fail tests, It's better to promote them to tools/testing/selftests. Thanks suggestion of Andrew Morton about this. They all need firstly setting up proper nr_hugepages and hugepage-mmap need to mount hugetlbfs. So I add a shell script run_vmtests to do such work which will call the three test programs and check the return value of them. Changes to original code including below: a. add run_vmtests script b. return error when read_bytes mismatch with writed bytes. c. coding style fixes: do not use assignment in if condition [akpm@linux-foundation.org: build the targets before trying to execute them] [akpm@linux-foundation.org: Documentation/vm/ no longer has a Makefile.

2012-03-28selftests: launch individual selftests from the main MakefileFrederic Weisbecker
Remove the run_tests script and launch the selftests by calling "make run_tests" from the selftests top directory instead. This delegates to the Makefile in each selftest directory, where it is decided how to launch the local test. This removes the need to add each selftest directory to the now removed "run_tests" top script.

2012-03-21ktest: Allow a test to override REBOOT_ON_SUCCESSSteven Rostedt
The option REBOOT_ON_SUCCESS is global, and will have the machine reboot the the box if all tests are successful. But a test may not want the machine to reboot, and perhaps have the kernel it loaded be used to install the next kernel. Or the last test may set up a kernel that the user may want to look at. In this case, the user could have the global option REBOOT_ON_SUCCESS be true, but if a test is defined to run at the end, that test can override the global option and keep the kernel it installed for the user to log in with.

2012-03-21ktest: Fix SWITCH_TO_GOOD to also reboot the machineSteven Rostedt
When the option SWITCH_TO_GOOD is set, it will be called when the system needs to reboot to the good server. But currently, this keeps the reboot from happening. The SWITCH_TO_GOOD is just a way to get to a new kernel, it may not mean to not reboot. Signed-off-by: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org>
2012-03-21ktest: Add SCP_TO_TARGET_INSTALL optionSteven Rostedt
Currently the option used to scp both the modules to the target as well as the kernel image are the same (SCP_TO_TARGET). But some embedded boards may require them to be different. The modules may need to be put directly on the board, but the kernel image may need to go to a tftpserver. Add the option SCP_TO_TARGET_INSTALL that will allow the user to change the config so that they may have the modules and image got to different machines.

2012-03-21ktest: Add warning when bugs are ignoredSteven Rostedt
When IGNORE_ERRORS is set, ktest will not fail a test if a backtrace is detected. But this can be an issue if the user added it in the config but forgot to remove it. They may be left wondering why their test did not fail, or even worse, why their bisect gave the wrong commit. Add a warning in the output if IGNORE_WARNINGS is set, and ktest detects a kernel error.
