to more agressive idle-balancing. This hurts lmbench context-switching
numbers (which was the main reason we sucked at idle-balancing for

sched: zap the migration init / cache-hot balancing code

the SMP load-balancer uses the boot-time migration-cost estimation
code to attempt to improve the quality of balancing. The reason for
this code is that the discrete priority queues do not preserve
the order of scheduling accurately, so the load-balancer skips
tasks that were running on a CPU 'recently'.

this code is fundamental fragile: the boot-time migration cost detector
doesnt really work on systems that had large L3 caches, it caused boot
delays on large systems and the whole cache-hot concept made the
balancing code pretty undeterministic as well.

(and hey, i wrote most of it, so i can say it out loud that it sucks ;-)

under CFS the same purpose of cache affinity can be achieved without
any special cache-hot special-case: tasks are sorted in the 'timeline'
tree and the SMP balancer picks tasks from the left side of the

Fix permission checking for the new utimensat() system call

Commit 1c710c896eb461895d3c399e15bb5f20b39c9073 added the utimensat()
system call, but didn't handle the case of checking for the writability
of the target right, when the target was a file descriptor, not a
filename.

We cannot use vfs_permission(MAY_WRITE) for that case, and need to
simply check whether the file descriptor is writable.  The oops from
using the wrong function was noticed and narrowed down by Markus
Trippelsdorf.

13 years agoFix elf_core_dump() when writing arch specific notes (spu coredumps)
Michael Ellerman [Fri, 6 Jul 2007 09:39:49 +0000 (02:39 -0700)]
Fix elf_core_dump() when writing arch specific notes (spu coredumps)

elf_core_dump() supports dumping arch specific ELF notes, via the #define
ELF_CORE_WRITE_EXTRA_NOTES.  Currently the only user of this is the powerpc
spu coredump code.

There is a bug in the handling of foffset WRT the arch notes, which causes
us to erroneously increment foffset by the size of the arch notes, leaving
a block of zeroes in the file, and causing all subsequent data in the file
to be at <supposed position> + <arch note size>.  eg:

  LOAD  0x050000 0x00100000 0x00000000 0x20000 0x20000 R E 0x10000

Tells us we should have a chunk of data at 0x50000.  The truth is the data
is at 0x90dbc = 0x50000 + 0x40dbc (the size of the arch notes).

This bug prevents gdb from reading the core file correctly.

The simplest fix is to simply remember the size of the arch notes, and add
it to foffset after we've written the arch notes.  The only drawback is
that if the arch code doesn't write as many bytes as it said it would, we
end up with a broken core dump again.  For now I think that's a reasonable
requirement.

Tested on a Cell blade, gdb no longer complains about the core file being
bogus.

While I'm here I should point out that the spu coredump code does not work
if we're dumping to a pipe - we'll have to wait for 23 to fix that.

[MIPS] Fix scheduling latency issue on 24K, 34K and 74K cores

The idle loop goes to sleep using the WAIT instruction if !need_resched().
This has is suffering from from a race condition that if if just after
need_resched has returned 0 an interrupt might set TIF_NEED_RESCHED but
we've just completed the test so go to sleep anyway.  This would be
trivial to fix by just disabling interrupts during that sequence as in:

        local_irq_disable();
        if (!need_resched())
                __asm__("wait");
        local_irq_enable();

but the processor architecture leaves it undefined if a processor calling
WAIT with interrupts disabled will ever restart its pipeline and indeed
some processors have made use of the freedom provided by the architecture
definition.  This has been resolved and the Config7.WII bit indicates that
the use of WAIT is safe on 24K, 24KE and 34K cores.  It also is safe on
74K starting revision 2.1.0 so enable the use of WAIT with interrupts
disabled for 74K based on a c0_prid of at least that.

Fix slab redzone alignment

Commit b46b8f19c9cd435ecac4d9d12b39d78c137ecd66 fixed a couple of bugs
by switching the redzone to 64 bits. Unfortunately, it neglected to
ensure that the _second_ redzone, after the slab object, is aligned
correctly. This caused illegal instruction faults on sparc32, which for
some reason not entirely clear to me are not trapped and fixed up.

Two things need to be done to fix this:
  - increase the object size, rounding up to alignof(long long) so
    that the second redzone can be aligned correctly.
  - If SLAB_STORE_USER is set but alignof(long long)==8, allow a
    full 64 bits of space for the user word at the end of the buffer,
    even though we may not _use_ the whole 64 bits.

This patch should be a no-op on any 64-bit architecture or any 32-bit
architecture where alignof(long long) == 4. Of the others, it's tested
on ppc32 by myself and a very similar patch was tested on sparc32 by
Mark Fortescue, who reported the new problem.

Also, fix the conditions for FORCED_DEBUG, which hadn't been adjusted to
the new sizes. Again noticed by Mark.
