[PATCH] s390: fix cmm kernel thread handling

Convert cmm's usage of kernel_thread to kthread_run.  Also create the
cmmthread at module load time, so it is possible to check if creation of
the thread fails.

In addition the cmmthread now gets terminated when the module gets unloaded
instead of leaving a stale kernel thread.  Also check the return values of
other registration functions at module load and handle their return values
appropriately.

[PATCH] swsusp: Introduce memory bitmaps

Introduce the memory bitmap data structure and make swsusp use in the suspend
phase.

The current swsusp's internal data structure is not very efficient from the
memory usage point of view, so it seems reasonable to replace it with a data
structure that will require less memory, such as a pair of bitmaps.

The idea is to use bitmaps that may be allocated as sets of individual pages,
so that we can avoid making allocations of order greater than 0.  For this
reason the memory bitmap structure consists of several linked lists of objects
that contain pointers to memory pages with the actual bitmap data.  Still, for
a typical system all of these lists fit in a single page, so it's reasonable
to introduce an additional mechanism allowing us to allocate all of them
efficiently without sacrificing the generality of the design.  This is done
with the help of the chain_allocator structure and associated functions.

We need to use two memory bitmaps during the suspend phase of the
suspend-resume cycle.  One of them is necessary for marking the saveable
pages, and the second is used to mark the pages in which to store the copies
of them (aka image pages).

First, the bitmaps are created and we allocate as many image pages as needed
(the corresponding bits in the second bitmap are set as soon as the pages are
allocated).  Second, the bits corresponding to the saveable pages are set in
the first bitmap and the saveable pages are copied to the image pages.
Finally, the first bitmap is used to save the kernel virtual addresses of the
saveable pages and the second one is used to save the contents of the image
pages.

[PATCH] Disable CPU hotplug during suspend

The current suspend code has to be run on one CPU, so we use the CPU
hotplug to take the non-boot CPUs offline on SMP machines.  However, we
should also make sure that these CPUs will not be enabled by someone else
after we have disabled them.

The functions disable_nonboot_cpus() and enable_nonboot_cpus() are moved to
kernel/cpu.c, because they now refer to some stuff in there that should
better be static.  Also it's better if disable_nonboot_cpus() returns an
error instead of panicking if something goes wrong, and
enable_nonboot_cpus() has no reason to panic(), because the CPUs may have
been enabled by the userland before it tries to take them online.

[PATCH] Translate asm version of ELFNOTE macro into preprocessor macro

I've come across some problems with the assembly version of the ELFNOTE
macro currently in -mm. (in
x86-put-note-sections-into-a-pt_note-segment-in-vmlinux.patch)

The first is that older gas does not support :varargs in .macro
definitions (in my testing 2.17 does while 2.15 does not, I don't know
when it became supported). The Changes file says binutils >= 2.12 so I
think we need to avoid using it. There are no other uses in mainline or
-mm. Old gas appears to just ignore it so you get "too many arguments"
type errors.

Secondly it seems that passing strings as arguments to assembler macros
is broken without varargs. It looks like they get unquoted or each
character is treated as a separate argument or something and this causes
all manner of grief. I think this is because of the use of -traditional
when compiling assembly files.

Therefore I have translated the assembler macro into a pre-processor
macro.

I added the desctype as a separate argument instead of including it with
the descdata as the previous version did since -traditional means the
ELFNOTE definition after the #else needs to have the same number of
arguments (I think so anyway, the -traditional CPP semantics are pretty
fscking strange!).

With this patch I am able to define elfnotes in assembly like this with
both old and new assemblers.

ELFNOTE(Xen, XEN_ELFNOTE_GUEST_OS,       .asciz, "linux")
ELFNOTE(Xen, XEN_ELFNOTE_GUEST_VERSION,  .asciz, "2.6")
ELFNOTE(Xen, XEN_ELFNOTE_XEN_VERSION,    .asciz, "xen-3.0")
ELFNOTE(Xen, XEN_ELFNOTE_VIRT_BASE,      .long,  __PAGE_OFFSET)

Which seems reasonable enough.

[PATCH] x86: put .note.* sections into a PT_NOTE segment in vmlinux

This patch will pack any .note.* section into a PT_NOTE segment in the output
file.

To do this, we tell ld that we need a PT_NOTE segment.  This requires us to
start explicitly mapping sections to segments, so we also need to explicitly
create PT_LOAD segments for text and data, and map the sections to them
appropriately.  Fortunately, each section will default to its previous
section's segment, so it doesn't take many changes to vmlinux.lds.S.

This only changes i386 for now, but I presume the corresponding changes for
other architectures will be as simple.

This change also adds <linux/elfnote.h>, which defines C and Assembler macros

stuff in place, it will be possible to use a jffs2 filesystem stored in the

I've also cleaned up the hsmc header by removing useless comments and

[PATCH] avr32 architecture

This adds support for the Atmel AVR32 architecture as well as the AT32AP7000
CPU and the AT32STK1000 development board.

AVR32 is a new high-performance 32-bit RISC microprocessor core, designed for
cost-sensitive embedded applications, with particular emphasis on low power
consumption and high code density.  The AVR32 architecture is not binary
compatible with earlier 8-bit AVR architectures.

The AVR32 architecture, including the instruction set, is described by the
AVR32 Architecture Manual, available from

http://www.atmel.com/dyn/resources/prod_documents/doc32000.pdf

The Atmel AT32AP7000 is the first CPU implementing the AVR32 architecture.  It
features a 7-stage pipeline, 16KB instruction and data caches and a full
Memory Management Unit.  It also comes with a large set of integrated
peripherals, many of which are shared with the AT91 ARM-based controllers from
Atmel.

Full data sheet is available from

http://www.atmel.com/dyn/resources/prod_documents/doc32003.pdf

while the CPU core implementation including caches and MMU is documented by
the AVR32 AP Technical Reference, available from

http://www.atmel.com/dyn/resources/prod_documents/doc32001.pdf

Information about the AT32STK1000 development board can be found at

http://www.atmel.com/dyn/products/tools_card.asp?tool_id=3918

including a BSP CD image with an earlier version of this patch, development
tools (binaries and source/patches) and a root filesystem image suitable for
booting from SD card.

Alternatively, there's a preliminary "getting started" guide available at
http://avr32linux.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/GettingStarted which provides links
to the sources and patches you will need in order to set up a cross-compiling
environment for avr32-linux.

This patch, as well as the other patches included with the BSP and the
toolchain patches, is actively supported by Atmel Corporation.

Christoph Lameter [Tue, 26 Sep 2006 06:31:52 +0000 (23:31 -0700)]
[PATCH] zone_reclaim: dynamic slab reclaim

Currently one can enable slab reclaim by setting an explicit option in
/proc/sys/vm/zone_reclaim_mode.  Slab reclaim is then used as a final
option if the freeing of unmapped file backed pages is not enough to free
enough pages to allow a local allocation.

However, that means that the slab can grow excessively and that most memory
of a node may be used by slabs.  We have had a case where a machine with
46GB of memory was using 40-42GB for slab.  Zone reclaim was effective in
dealing with pagecache pages.  However, slab reclaim was only done during
global reclaim (which is a bit rare on NUMA systems).

This patch implements slab reclaim during zone reclaim.  Zone reclaim
occurs if there is a danger of an off node allocation.  At that point we

1. Shrink the per node page cache if the number of pagecache
   pages is more than min_unmapped_ratio percent of pages in a zone.

2. Shrink the slab cache if the number of the nodes reclaimable slab pages
   (patch depends on earlier one that implements that counter)
   are more than min_slab_ratio (a new /proc/sys/vm tunable).

The shrinking of the slab cache is a bit problematic since it is not node
specific.  So we simply calculate what point in the slab we want to reach
(current per node slab use minus the number of pages that neeed to be
allocated) and then repeately run the global reclaim until that is
unsuccessful or we have reached the limit.  I hope we will have zone based
slab reclaim at some point which will make that easier.

The default for the min_slab_ratio is 5%

Also remove the slab option from /proc/sys/vm/zone_reclaim_mode.

[PATCH] slab: do not panic when alloc_kmemlist fails and slab is up

It is fairly easy to get a system to oops by simply sizing a cache via
/proc in such a way that one of the chaches (shared is easiest) becomes
bigger than the maximum allowed slab allocation size.  This occurs because
enable_cpucache() fails if it cannot reallocate some caches.

However, enable_cpucache() is used for multiple purposes: resizing caches,
cache creation and bootstrap.

If the slab is already up then we already have working caches.  The resize
can fail without a problem.  We just need to return the proper error code.
F.e.  after this patch:

# echo "size-64 10000 50 1000" >/proc/slabinfo
-bash: echo: write error: Cannot allocate memory

notice no OOPS.

If we are doing a kmem_cache_create() then we also should not panic but
return -ENOMEM.

If on the other hand we do not have a fully bootstrapped slab allocator yet
then we should indeed panic since we are unable to bring up the slab to its
full functionality.
