| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | The limit of 128 bytes is too small when debugging slab corruption of the skb cache, for example.

| * | | netfilter: accounting rework: ct_extend + 64bit counters (v4)Krzysztof Piotr Oledzki2008-07-2115-86/+248
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Initially netfilter has had 64bit counters for conntrack-based accounting, but it was changed in 2.6.14 to save memory. Unfortunately in-kernel 64bit counters are still required, for example for "connbytes" extension. However, 64bit counters waste a lot of memory and it was not possible to enable/disable it runtime. This patch: - reimplements accounting with respect to the extension infrastructure, - makes one global version of seq_print_acct() instead of two seq_print_counters(), - makes it possible to enable it at boot time (for CONFIG_SYSCTL/CONFIG_SYSFS=n), - makes it possible to enable/disable it at runtime by sysctl or sysfs, - extends counters from 32bit to 64bit, - renames ip_conntrack_counter -> nf_conn_counter, - enables accounting code unconditionally (no longer depends on CONFIG_NF_CT_ACCT), - set initial accounting enable state based on CONFIG_NF_CT_ACCT - removes buggy IPCT_COUNTER_FILLING event handling. If accounting is enabled newly created connections get additional acct extend. Old connections are not changed as it is not possible to add a ct_extend area to confirmed conntrack. Accounting is performed for all connections with acct extend regardless of a current state of "net.netfilter.nf_conntrack_acct".

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This is a trivial patch against the hdlcdrv module that fixes its CRC calculation. The finished CRC was overwriting the first two bytes of each packet rather than being appended to the end. I've tested this with 2.6.8 and 2.6.10-rc1, but hdlcdrv hasn't changed much recently so it should work with many other kernel versions.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Based upon a bug report by Alexey Dobriyan, the patch is also tested by him and confirmed to fix the problem. Packet flow during link state events should not be done by waking and stopping the TX queue anyways, that is handled transparently by netif_carrier_{on,off}(). So, remove the netif_{wake,stop}_queue() calls in the link check code, and add the necessary netif_start_queue() call to atl1_up(). Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>

This implements a Xen-specific spinlock, which should be much more efficient. The fast-path is essentially the old Linux-x86 locks, using a single lock byte. The locker decrements the byte; if the result is 0, then they have the lock. If the lock is negative, then locker must spin until the lock is positive again. When there's contention, the locker spin for 2^16[*] iterations waiting to get the lock. If it fails to get the lock in that time, it adds itself to the contention count in the lock and blocks on a per-cpu event channel. When unlocking the spinlock, the locker looks to see if there's anyone blocked waiting for the lock by checking for a non-zero waiter count. If there's a waiter, it traverses the per-cpu "lock_spinners" variable, which contains which lock each CPU is waiting on. It picks one CPU waiting on the lock and sends it an event to wake it up. This allows efficient fast-path spinlock operation, while allowing spinning vcpus to give up their processor time while waiting for a contended lock. [*] 2^16 iterations is threshold at which 98% locks have been taken according to Thomas Friebel's Xen Summit talk "Preventing Guests from Spinning Around". Therefore, we'd expect the lock and unlock slow paths will only be entered 2% of the time.

In order to be compatible with the ticket-lock's use of a zero initializer, this uses the convention of '0' for unlocked and '1' for locked. This algorithm is much better than ticket locks in a virtual envionment, because it doesn't interact badly with the vcpu scheduler. If there are multiple vcpus spinning on a lock and the lock is released, the next vcpu to be scheduled will take the lock, rather than cycling around until the next ticketed vcpu gets it. To use this, you must call paravirt_use_bytelocks() very early, before any spinlocks have been taken.

If there is any contention for physical CPUs (ie, there are more runnable vcpus than cpus), then ticket locks can cause the system to end up spending 90+% of its time spinning. The problem is that (v)cpus waiting on a ticket spinlock will be granted access to the lock in strict order they got their tickets. If the hypervisor scheduler doesn't give the vcpus time in that order, they will burn timeslices waiting for the scheduler to give the right vcpu some time. In the worst case it could take O(n^2) vcpu scheduler timeslices for everyone waiting on the lock to get it, not counting new cpus trying to take the lock while the log-jam is sorted out. These hooks allow a paravirt backend to replace the spinlock implementation. At the very least, this could revert the implementation back to the old lock algorithm, which allows the next scheduled vcpu to take the lock, and has basically fairly good performance. It also allows the spinlocks to take advantages of the hypervisor features to make locks more efficient (spin and block, for example). The cost to native execution is an extra direct call when using a spinlock function. There's no overhead if CONFIG_PARAVIRT is turned off. The lock structure is fixed at a single "unsigned int", initialized to zero, but the spinlock implementation can use it as it wishes. Thanks to Thomas Friebel's Xen Summit talk "Preventing Guests from Spinning Around" for pointing out this problem.

If we can't set the appropriate syscall callback, then disable the corresponding feature bit, which will cause the vdso32 setup to fall back appropriately. Linux assumes that syscall is always available to 32-bit userspace, and installs it by default if sysenter isn't available. In that case, we just disable vdso altogether, forcing userspace libc to fall back to int $0x80.
