mm/slab: Fix crash during slab init

Commit 8a965b3baa89 ("mm, slab_common: Fix bootstrap creation of kmalloc
caches") introduced a regression that caused us to crash early during
boot.  The commit was introducing ordering of slab creation, making sure
two odd-sized slabs were created after specific powers of two sizes.

But, if any of the power of two slabs were created earlier during boot,
slabs at index 1 or 2 might not get created at all.  This patch makes
sure none of the slabs get skipped.

Tony Lindgren bisected this down to the offending commit, which really
helped because bisect kept bringing me to almost but not quite this one.

f2fs: cover free_nid management with spin_lock

After build_free_nids() searches free nid candidates from nat pages and
current journal blocks, it checks all the candidates if they are allocated
so that the nat cache has its nid with an allocated block address.

In this procedure, previously we used
    list_for_each_entry_safe(fnid, next_fnid, &nm_i->free_nid_list, list).
But, this is not covered by free_nid_list_lock, resulting in null pointer bug.

This patch moves this checking routine inside add_free_nid() in order not to use

The bitops prototype use an 'int' as the bit index type but the asm

arm64: dts: fix #address-cells for foundation-v8

Commit 90556ca1 ("arm64: vexpress: Add dts files for the ARMv8 RTSM

/cpus/#address-cells = <1> while providing two cells in each cpus/cpu@N
node's reg property.

As of commit ea393a2e ("arm64: smp: honour #address-size when parsing
CPU reg property") we read in as many address cells as specified rather
than always reading two. This means that for foundation-v8.dts, we only
read the first reg cell (zero) for each cpu node, and receive a lot of
warnings at boot of the form "/cpus/cpu@1: duplicate cpu reg properties
in the DT".

This patch corrects foundation-v8.dts to have the correct value for
/cpus/#address-cells.

wait: add wait_event_hrtimeout()

Analagous to wait_event_timeout() and friends, this adds
wait_event_hrtimeout() and wait_event_interruptible_hrtimeout().

Note that unlike the versions that use regular timers, these don't
return the amount of time remaining when they return - instead, they
return 0 or -ETIME if they timed out.  because I was uncomfortable with
the semantics of doing it the other way (that I could get it right,
anyways).

If the timer expires, there's no real guarantee that expire_time -
current_time would be <= 0 - due to timer slack certainly, and I'm not
sure I want to know the implications of the different clock bases in
hrtimers.

If the timer does expire and the code calculates that the time remaining
is nonnegative, that could be even worse if the calling code then reuses
that timeout.  Probably safer to just return 0 then, but I could imagine
weird bugs or at least unintended behaviour arising from that too.

I came to the conclusion that if other users end up actually needing the
amount of time remaining, the sanest thing to do would be to create a
version that uses absolute timeouts instead of relative.

6 years agoaio: refcounting cleanup
Kent Overstreet [Tue, 7 May 2013 23:18:41 +0000 (16:18 -0700)]
aio: refcounting cleanup

The usage of ctx->dead was fubar - it makes no sense to explicitly check
it all over the place, especially when we're already using RCU.

Now, ctx->dead only indicates whether we've dropped the initial
refcount. The new teardown sequence is:

  set ctx->dead
  hlist_del_rcu();
  synchronize_rcu();

Now we know no system calls can take a new ref, and it's safe to drop
the initial ref:

  put_ioctx();

We also need to ensure there are no more outstanding kiocbs.  This was
done incorrectly - it was being done in kill_ctx(), and before dropping
the initial refcount.  At this point, other syscalls may still be
submitting kiocbs!

Now, we cancel and wait for outstanding kiocbs in free_ioctx(), after
kioctx->users has dropped to 0 and we know no more iocbs could be
submitted.

6 years agoaio: make aio_put_req() lockless
Kent Overstreet [Tue, 7 May 2013 23:18:39 +0000 (16:18 -0700)]
aio: make aio_put_req() lockless

Freeing a kiocb needed to touch the kioctx for three things:

 * Pull it off the reqs_active list
 * Decrementing reqs_active
 * Issuing a wakeup, if the kioctx was in the process of being freed.

This patch moves these to aio_complete(), for a couple reasons:

 * aio_complete() already has to issue the wakeup, so if we drop the
   kioctx refcount before aio_complete does its wakeup we don't have to
   do it twice.
 * aio_complete currently has to take the kioctx lock, so it makes sense
   for it to pull the kiocb off the reqs_active list too.
 * A later patch is going to change reqs_active to include unreaped
   completions - this will mean allocating a kiocb doesn't have to look
   at the ringbuffer. So taking the decrement of reqs_active out of
   kiocb_free() is useful prep work for that patch.

This doesn't really affect cancellation, since existing (usb) code that
implements a cancel function still calls aio_complete() - we just have
to make sure that aio_complete does the necessary teardown for cancelled
kiocbs.

It does affect code paths where we free kiocbs that were never
submitted; they need to decrement reqs_active and pull the kiocb off the
reqs_active list.  This occurs in two places: kiocb_batch_free(), which
is going away in a later patch, and the error path in io_submit_one.

This design flaw means that nothing of any meaningful complexity can use

This removes all the code and data associated with the retry machinery.
The most significant benefit of this is the removal of the locking

6 years agomm: remove old aio use_mm() comment
Zach Brown [Tue, 7 May 2013 23:18:19 +0000 (16:18 -0700)]
mm: remove old aio use_mm() comment

Bunch of performance improvements and cleanups Zach Brown and I have
been working on.  The code should be pretty solid at this point, though
it could of course use more review and testing.

The results in my testing are pretty impressive, particularly when an
ioctx is being shared between multiple threads.  In my crappy synthetic
benchmark, with 4 threads submitting and one thread reaping completions,
I saw overhead in the aio code go from ~50% (mostly ioctx lock
contention) to low single digits.  Performance with ioctx per thread
improved too, but I'd have to rerun those benchmarks.

The reason I've been focused on performance when the ioctx is shared is
that for a fair number of real world completions, userspace needs the
completions aggregated somehow - in practice people just end up
implementing this aggregation in userspace today, but if it's done right
we can do it much more efficiently in the kernel.

Performance wise, the end result of this patch series is that submitting
a kiocb writes to _no_ shared cachelines - the penalty for sharing an
ioctx is gone there.  There's still going to be some cacheline
contention when we deliver the completions to the aio ringbuffer (at
least if you have interrupts being delivered on multiple cores, which
for high end stuff you do) but I have a couple more patches not in this
series that implement coalescing for that (by taking advantage of
interrupt coalescing).  With that, there's basically no bottlenecks or
performance issues to speak of in the aio code.

This patch:

use_mm() is used in more places than just aio.  There's no need to mention
callers when describing the function.

instruction.  If ->count is not set to RWSEM_WAITING_BIAS then there is

Furthermore, Michel states "I suppose it helps due to the case where

parisc: only re-enable interrupts if we need to schedule or deliver signals when returning to userspace

Helge and I have found that we have a kernel stack overflow problem
which causes a variety of random failures.
Currently, we re-enable interrupts when returning from an external
interrupt incase we need to schedule or delivery
signals.  As a result, a potentially unlimited number of interrupts
can occur while we are running on the kernel
stack.  It is very limited in space (currently, 16k).  This change
defers enabling interrupts until we have
actually decided to schedule or delivery signals.  This only occurs
when we about to return to userspace.  This
limits the number of interrupts on the kernel stack to one.  In other
cases, interrupts remain disabled until the
final return from interrupt (rfi).

Note that this is an optimization only; architectures without this
optimization will still work fine:

- __down_write() would take the slow path which would take the wait_lock

- __down_write_trylock() would fail, but callers must be ready to deal

6 years agorwsem: implement support for write lock stealing on the fastpath
Michel Lespinasse [Tue, 7 May 2013 13:45:59 +0000 (06:45 -0700)]
rwsem: implement support for write lock stealing on the fastpath

When we decide to wake up readers, we must first grant them as many read
locks as necessary, and then actually wake up all these readers.  But in
order to know how many read shares to grant, we must first count the
readers at the head of the queue.  This might take a while if there are
many readers, and we want to be protected against a writer stealing the
lock while we're counting.  To that end, we grant the first reader lock
before counting how many more readers are queued.

We also require some adjustments to the wake_type semantics.

RWSEM_WAKE_NO_ACTIVE used to mean that we had found the count to be
RWSEM_WAITING_BIAS, in which case the rwsem was known to be free as
nobody could steal it while we hold the wait_lock.  This doesn't make
sense once we implement fastpath write lock stealing, so we now use
RWSEM_WAKE_ANY in that case.

Similarly, when rwsem_down_write_failed found that a read lock was
active, it would use RWSEM_WAKE_READ_OWNED which signalled that new
readers could be woken without checking first that the rwsem was
available.  We can't do that anymore since the existing readers might
release their read locks, and a writer could steal the lock before we
wake up additional readers.  So, we have to use a new RWSEM_WAKE_READERS
value to indicate we only want to wake readers, but we don't currently
hold any read lock.

Michel Lespinasse [Tue, 7 May 2013 13:45:54 +0000 (06:45 -0700)]
rwsem: more agressive lock stealing in rwsem_down_write_failed

Some small code simplifications can be achieved by doing more agressive
lock stealing:

- When rwsem_down_write_failed() notices that there are no active locks
  (and thus no thread to wake us if we decided to sleep), it used to wake
  the first queued process. However, stealing the lock is also sufficient
  to deal with this case, so we don't need this check anymore.

- In try_get_writer_sem(), we can steal the lock even when the first waiter
  is a reader. This is correct because the code path that wakes readers is
  protected by the wait_lock. As to the performance effects of this change,
  they are expected to be minimal: readers are still granted the lock
  (rather than having to acquire it themselves) when they reach the front

  rwsem-spinlock.
