* hardirq.h: needs sched.h if using BKLLinus Torvalds2010-11-181-0/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This really isn't the right thing to do, and strictly speaking we should have the BKL depth count in the thread info right next to the preempt count. The two really do go together. However, since that would involve a patch to all architectures, and the BKL is finally going away, it's simply not worth the effort to do the RightThing(tm). Just re-instate the <linux/sched.h> include that we used to get accidentally from the smp_lock.h one. This is all fallout from the same old "BKL: remove extraneous #include <smp_lock.h>" commit.

* Fix build failure due to hwirq.h needing smp_lock.hLinus Torvalds2010-11-171-1/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Arnd Bergmann did an automated scripting run to find left-over instances of <linux/smp_lock.h>, and had made it trigger it on the normal BKL use of lock_kernel and unlock_lernel (and apparently release_kernel_lock and reacquire_kernel_lock too, used by the scheduler). That resulted in commit 451a3c24b013 ("BKL: remove extraneous #include <smp_lock.h>"). However, hardirq.h was the only remaining user of the old 'kernel_locked()' interface, and Arnd's script hadn't checked for that. So depending on your configuration and what header files had been included, you would get errors like "implicit declaration of function 'kernel_locked'" during the build. The right fix is not to just re-instate the smp_lock.h include - it is to just remove 'kernel_locked()' entirely, since the only use was this one special low-level detail. Just make hardirq.h do it directly. In fact this simplifies and clarifies the code, because some trivial analysis makes it clear that hardirq.h only ever used _one_ of the two definitions of kernel_locked(), so we can remove the other one entirely.

| * | sched: Add IRQ_TIME_ACCOUNTING, finer accounting of irq timeVenkatesh Pallipadi2010-10-181-1/+1

Adding that option on archs like x86 will be challenging however, given the state of TSC reliability on various platforms and also the overhead it will add in syscall entry exit. Instead, add a lighter variant that only does finer accounting of hardirq and softirq times, providing precise irq times (instead of timer tick based samples). This accounting is added with a new config option CONFIG_IRQ_TIME_ACCOUNTING so that there won't be any overhead for users not interested in paying the perf penalty. This accounting is based on sched_clock, with the code being generic. So, other archs may find it useful as well. This patch just adds the core logic and does not enable this logic yet.

There is no way, later in the flow, to differentiate between whether softirq is being processed or is it just that bh has been disabled. So, a hardirq when bh is disabled results in time being wrongly accounted as softirq. Looking at the code a bit more, the problem exists in !VIRT_CPU_ACCOUNTING as well. As account_system_time() in normal tick based accouting also uses softirq_count, which will be set even when not in softirq with bh disabled. Peter also suggested solution of using 2*SOFTIRQ_OFFSET as irq count for local_bh_{disable,enable} and using just SOFTIRQ_OFFSET while softirq processing. The patch below does that and adds API in_serving_softirq() which returns whether we are currently processing softirq or not. Also changes one of the usages of softirq_count in net/sched/cls_cgroup.c to in_serving_softirq. Looks like many usages of in_softirq really want in_serving_softirq. Those changes can be made individually on a case by case basis.

* / rcu: Add a TINY_PREEMPT_RCUPaul E. McKenney2010-08-201-1/+1
|/ | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Implement a small-memory-footprint uniprocessor-only implementation of preemptible RCU. This implementation uses but a single blocked-tasks list rather than the combinatorial number used per leaf rcu_node by TREE_PREEMPT_RCU, which reduces memory consumption and greatly simplifies processing. This version also takes advantage of uniprocessor execution to accelerate grace periods in the case where there are no readers. The general design is otherwise broadly similar to that of TREE_PREEMPT_RCU. This implementation is a step towards having RCU implementation driven off of the SMP and PREEMPT kernel configuration variables, which can happen once this implementation has accumulated sufficient experience. Removed ACCESS_ONCE() from __rcu_read_unlock() and added barrier() as suggested by Steve Rostedt in order to avoid the compiler-reordering issue noted by Mathieu Desnoyers (http://lkml.org/lkml/2010/8/16/183). As can be seen below, CONFIG_TINY_PREEMPT_RCU represents almost 5Kbyte savings compared to CONFIG_TREE_PREEMPT_RCU. Of course, for non-real-time workloads, CONFIG_TINY_RCU is even better.

In particular, the implementation of synchronize_rcu() is extremely lightweight and high performance. It passes rcutorture testing in each of the four relevant configurations (combinations of NO_HZ and PREEMPT) on x86. This saves about 1K bytes compared to old Classic RCU (which is no longer in mainline), and more than three kilobytes compared to Hierarchical RCU (updated to 2.6.30): CONFIG_TREE_RCU: text data bss dec filename 183 4 0 187 kernel/rcupdate.o 2783 520 36 3339 kernel/rcutree.o 3526 Total (vs 4565 for v7) CONFIG_TREE_PREEMPT_RCU: text data bss dec filename 263 4 0 267 kernel/rcupdate.o 4594 776 52 5422 kernel/rcutree.o 5689 Total (6155 for v7) CONFIG_TINY_RCU: text data bss dec filename 96 4 0 100 kernel/rcupdate.o 734 24 0 758 kernel/rcutiny.o 858 Total (vs 848 for v7) The above is for x86. Your mileage may vary on other platforms. Further compression is possible, but is being procrastinated. Changes from v7 (http://lkml.org/lkml/2009/10/9/388) o Apply Lai Jiangshan's review comments (aside from might_sleep() in synchronize_sched(), which is covered by SMP builds). o Fix up expedited primitives. Changes from v6 (http://lkml.org/lkml/2009/9/23/293). o Forward ported to put it into the 2.6.33 stream. o Added lockdep support. o Make lightweight rcu_barrier. Changes from v5 (http://lkml.org/lkml/2009/6/23/12). o Ported to latest pre-2.6.32 merge window kernel. - Renamed rcu_qsctr_inc() to rcu_sched_qs(). - Renamed rcu_bh_qsctr_inc() to rcu_bh_qs(). - Provided trivial rcu_cpu_notify(). - Provided trivial exit_rcu(). - Provided trivial rcu_needs_cpu(). - Fixed up the rcu_*_enter/exit() functions in linux/hardirq.h. o Removed the dependence on EMBEDDED, with a view to making TINY_RCU default for !SMP at some time in the future. o Added (trivial) support for expedited grace periods. Changes from v4 (http://lkml.org/lkml/2009/5/2/91) include: o Squeeze the size down a bit further by removing the ->completed field from struct rcu_ctrlblk. o This permits synchronize_rcu() to become the empty function. Previous concerns about rcutorture were unfounded, as rcutorture correctly handles a constant value from rcu_batches_completed() and rcu_batches_completed_bh(). Changes from v3 (http://lkml.org/lkml/2009/3/29/221) include: o Changed rcu_batches_completed(), rcu_batches_completed_bh() rcu_enter_nohz(), rcu_exit_nohz(), rcu_nmi_enter(), and rcu_nmi_exit(), to be static inlines, as suggested by David Howells. Doing this saves about 100 bytes from rcutiny.o. (The numbers between v3 and this v4 of the patch are not directly comparable, since they are against different versions of Linux.) Changes from v2 (http://lkml.org/lkml/2009/2/3/333) include: o Fix whitespace issues. o Change short-circuit "||" operator to instead be "+" in order to fix performance bug noted by "kraai" on LWN. (http://lwn.net/Articles/324348/) Changes from v1 (http://lkml.org/lkml/2009/1/13/440) include: o This version depends on EMBEDDED as well as !SMP, as suggested by Ingo. o Updated rcu_needs_cpu() to unconditionally return zero, permitting the CPU to enter dynticks-idle mode at any time. This works because callbacks can be invoked upon entry to dynticks-idle mode. o Paul is now OK with this being included, based on a poll at the Kernel Miniconf at linux.conf.au, where about ten people said that they cared about saving 900 bytes on single-CPU systems. o Applies to both mainline and tip/core/rcu.

|/ | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | A couple of references to CONFIG_CLASSIC_RCU have survived. Although these are harmless, it is past time for them to go. The one in hardirq.h is strictly a readability problem. The two in pagemap.h appear to disable a !SMP performance optimization (which this patch re-enables). This does raise the issue as to whether pagemap.h should really be referring to the CPU implementation. Long term, I intend to make the RCU implementation driven by CONFIG_PREEMPT, at which point these should change from defined(CONFIG_TREE_RCU) to !defined(CONFIG_PREEMPT).

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Impact: avoid corruption in system time accounting Martin Schwidefsky told me that there was an issue with NMIs and system accounting. The problem is that the accounting code is not reentrant, and if an NMI goes off after an interrupt it can corrupt the accounting. For now, the best we can do is to treat NMIs like SMIs and they are not accounted for. This patch changes nmi_enter to not call __irq_enter and to do the preempt-count and tracing calls directly.

| * preempt-count: force hardirq-count to max of 10Steven Rostedt2009-02-121-24/+24
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | To add a bit in the preempt_count to be set when in NMI context, we found that some archs did not have enough bits to spare. This is due to the hardirq_count being a mask that can hold NR_IRQS. Some archs allow for over 16000 IRQs, and that would require a mask of 14 bits. The sofitrq mask is 8 bits and the preempt disable mask is also 8 bits. The PREEMP_ACTIVE bit is bit 30, and bit 31 would make the preempt_count (which is type int) a negative number. A negative preempt_count is a sign of failure. Add them up 14+8+8+1+1 you get 32 bits. No room for the NMI bit. But the hardirq_count is to track the number of nested IRQs, not the number of total IRQs. This originally took the paranoid approach of setting the max nesting to NR_IRQS. But when we have archs with over 1000 IRQs, it is not practical to think they will ever all nest on a single CPU. Not to mention that this would most definitely cause a stack overflow. This patch sets a max of 10 bits to be used for IRQ nesting. I did a 'git grep HARDIRQ' to examine all users of HARDIRQ_BITS and HARDIRQ_MASK, and found that making it a max of 10 would not hurt anyone. I did find that the m68k expected it to be 8 bits, so I allow for the archs to set the number to be less than 10. I removed the setting of HARDIRQ_BITS from the archs that set it to more than 10. This includes ALPHA, ia64 and avr32. This will always allow room for the NMI bit, and if we need to allow for NMI nesting, we have 4 bits to play with.

* | genirq: add threaded interrupt handler supportThomas Gleixner2009-03-241-1/+1
|/ | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Add support for threaded interrupt handlers: A device driver can request that its main interrupt handler runs in a thread. To achive this the device driver requests the interrupt with request_threaded_irq() and provides additionally to the handler a thread function. The handler function is called in hard interrupt context and needs to check whether the interrupt originated from the device. If the interrupt originated from the device then the handler can either return IRQ_HANDLED or IRQ_WAKE_THREAD. IRQ_HANDLED is returned when no further action is required. IRQ_WAKE_THREAD causes the genirq code to invoke the threaded (main) handler. When IRQ_WAKE_THREAD is returned handler must have disabled the interrupt on the device level. This is mandatory for shared interrupt handlers, but we need to do it as well for obscure x86 hardware where disabling an interrupt on the IO_APIC level redirects the interrupt to the legacy PIC interrupt lines.

Although this patch creates a separate flavor of RCU for ease of review and patch maintenance, it is intended to replace classic RCU. This patch still handles stress better than does mainline, so I am still calling it ready for inclusion. This patch is against the -tip tree. Nevertheless, experience on an actual 1000+ CPU machine would still be most welcome. Most of the changes noted below were found while creating an rcutiny (which should permit ejecting the current rcuclassic) and while doing detailed line-by-line documentation. Updates from v9 (http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/12/2/334): o Fixes from remainder of line-by-line code walkthrough, including comment spelling, initialization, undesirable narrowing due to type conversion, removing redundant memory barriers, removing redundant local-variable initialization, and removing redundant local variables. I do not believe that any of these fixes address the CPU-hotplug issues that Andi Kleen was seeing, but please do give it a whirl in case the machine is smarter than I am. A writeup from the walkthrough may be found at the following URL, in case you are suffering from terminal insomnia or masochism: http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/paulmck/tmp/rcutree-walkthrough.2008.12.16a.pdf o Made rcutree tracing use seq_file, as suggested some time ago by Lai Jiangshan. o Added a .csv variant of the rcudata debugfs trace file, to allow people having thousands of CPUs to drop the data into a spreadsheet. Tested with oocalc and gnumeric. Updated documentation to suit. Updates from v8 (http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/11/15/139): o Fix a theoretical race between grace-period initialization and force_quiescent_state() that could occur if more than three jiffies were required to carry out the grace-period initialization. Which it might, if you had enough CPUs. o Apply Ingo's printk-standardization patch. o Substitute local variables for repeated accesses to global variables. o Fix comment misspellings and redundant (but harmless) increments of ->n_rcu_pending (this latter after having explicitly added it). o Apply checkpatch fixes. Updates from v7 (http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/10/10/291): o Fixed a number of problems noted by Gautham Shenoy, including the cpu-stall-detection bug that he was having difficulty convincing me was real. ;-) o Changed cpu-stall detection to wait for ten seconds rather than three in order to reduce false positive, as suggested by Ingo Molnar. o Produced a design document (http://lwn.net/Articles/305782/). The act of writing this document uncovered a number of both theoretical and "here and now" bugs as noted below. o Fix dynticks_nesting accounting confusion, simplify WARN_ON() condition, fix kerneldoc comments, and add memory barriers in dynticks interface functions. o Add more data to tracing. o Remove unused "rcu_barrier" field from rcu_data structure. o Count calls to rcu_pending() from scheduling-clock interrupt to use as a surrogate timebase should jiffies stop counting. o Fix a theoretical race between force_quiescent_state() and grace-period initialization. Yes, initialization does have to go on for some jiffies for this race to occur, but given enough CPUs... Updates from v6 (http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/9/23/448): o Fix a number of checkpatch.pl complaints. o Apply review comments from Ingo Molnar and Lai Jiangshan on the stall-detection code. o Fix several bugs in !CONFIG_SMP builds. o Fix a misspelled config-parameter name so that RCU now announces at boot time if stall detection is configured. o Run tests on numerous combinations of configurations parameters, which after the fixes above, now build and run correctly. Updates from v5 (http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/9/15/92, bad subject line): o Fix a compiler error in the !CONFIG_FANOUT_EXACT case (blew a changeset some time ago, and finally got around to retesting this option). o Fix some tracing bugs in rcupreempt that caused incorrect totals to be printed. o I now test with a more brutal random-selection online/offline script (attached). Probably more brutal than it needs to be on the people reading it as well, but so it goes. o A number of optimizations and usability improvements: o Make rcu_pending() ignore the grace-period timeout when there is no grace period in progress. o Make force_quiescent_state() avoid going for a global lock in the case where there is no grace period in progress. o Rearrange struct fields to improve struct layout. o Make call_rcu() initiate a grace period if RCU was idle, rather than waiting for the next scheduling clock interrupt. o Invoke rcu_irq_enter() and rcu_irq_exit() only when idle, as suggested by Andi Kleen. I still don't completely trust this change, and might back it out. o Make CONFIG_RCU_TRACE be the single config variable manipulated for all forms of RCU, instead of the prior confusion. o Document tracing files and formats for both rcupreempt and rcutree. Updates from v4 for those missing v5 given its bad subject line: o Separated dynticks interface so that NMIs and irqs call separate functions, greatly simplifying it. In particular, this code no longer requires a proof of correctness. ;-) o Separated dynticks state out into its own per-CPU structure, avoiding the duplicated accounting. o The case where a dynticks-idle CPU runs an irq handler that invokes call_rcu() is now correctly handled, forcing that CPU out of dynticks-idle mode. o Review comments have been applied (thank you all!!!). For but one example, fixed the dynticks-ordering issue that Manfred pointed out, saving me much debugging. ;-) o Adjusted rcuclassic and rcupreempt to handle dynticks changes. Attached is an updated patch to Classic RCU that applies a hierarchy, greatly reducing the contention on the top-level lock for large machines. This passes 10-hour concurrent rcutorture and online-offline testing on 128-CPU ppc64 without dynticks enabled, and exposes some timekeeping bugs in presence of dynticks (exciting working on a system where "sleep 1" hangs until interrupted...), which were fixed in the 2.6.27 kernel. It is getting more reliable than mainline by some measures, so the next version will be against -tip for inclusion. See also Manfred Spraul's recent patches (or his earlier work from 2004 at http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=108546384711797&w=2). We will converge onto a common patch in the fullness of time, but are currently exploring different regions of the design space. That said, I have already gratefully stolen quite a few of Manfred's ideas. This patch provides CONFIG_RCU_FANOUT, which controls the bushiness of the RCU hierarchy. Defaults to 32 on 32-bit machines and 64 on 64-bit machines. If CONFIG_NR_CPUS is less than CONFIG_RCU_FANOUT, there is no hierarchy. By default, the RCU initialization code will adjust CONFIG_RCU_FANOUT to balance the hierarchy, so strongly NUMA architectures may choose to set CONFIG_RCU_FANOUT_EXACT to disable this balancing, allowing the hierarchy to be exactly aligned to the underlying hardware. Up to two levels of hierarchy are permitted (in addition to the root node), allowing up to 16,384 CPUs on 32-bit systems and up to 262,144 CPUs on 64-bit systems. I just know that I am going to regret saying this, but this seems more than sufficient for the foreseeable future. (Some architectures might wish to set CONFIG_RCU_FANOUT=4, which would limit such architectures to 64 CPUs. If this becomes a real problem, additional levels can be added, but I doubt that it will make a significant difference on real hardware.) In the common case, a given CPU will manipulate its private rcu_data structure and the rcu_node structure that it shares with its immediate neighbors. This can reduce both lock and memory contention by multiple orders of magnitude, which should eliminate the need for the strange manipulations that are reported to be required when running Linux on very large systems. Some shortcomings: o More bugs will probably surface as a result of an ongoing line-by-line code inspection. Patches will be provided as required. o There are probably hangs, rcutorture failures, &c. Seems quite stable on a 128-CPU machine, but that is kind of small compared to 4096 CPUs. However, seems to do better than mainline. Patches will be provided as required. o The memory footprint of this version is several KB larger than rcuclassic. A separate UP-only rcutiny patch will be provided, which will reduce the memory footprint significantly, even compared to the old rcuclassic. One such patch passes light testing, and has a memory footprint smaller even than rcuclassic. Initial reaction from various embedded guys was "it is not worth it", so am putting it aside.

* | ftrace: nmi safe code modificationSteven Rostedt2008-10-301-2/+13
|/ | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Impact: fix crashes that can occur in NMI handlers, if their code is modified Modifying code is something that needs special care. On SMP boxes, if code that is being modified is also being executed on another CPU, that CPU will have undefined results. The dynamic ftrace uses kstop_machine to make the system act like a uniprocessor system. But this does not address NMIs, that can still run on other CPUs. One approach to handle this is to make all code that are used by NMIs not be traced. But NMIs can call notifiers that spread throughout the kernel and this will be very hard to maintain, and the chance of missing a function is very high. The approach that this patch takes is to have the NMIs modify the code if the modification is taking place. The way this works is that just writing to code executing on another CPU is not harmful if what is written is the same as what exists. Two buffers are used: an IP buffer and a "code" buffer. The steps that the patcher takes are: 1) Put in the instruction pointer into the IP buffer and the new code into the "code" buffer. 2) Set a flag that says we are modifying code 3) Wait for any running NMIs to finish. 4) Write the code 5) clear the flag. 6) Wait for any running NMIs to finish. If an NMI is executed, it will also write the pending code. Multiple writes are OK, because what is being written is the same. Then the patcher must wait for all running NMIs to finish before going to the next line that must be patched. This is basically the RCU approach to code modification. Thanks to Ingo Molnar for suggesting the idea, and to Arjan van de Ven for his guidence on what is safe and what is not.

* BKL: revert back to the old spinlock implementationLinus Torvalds2008-05-101-8/+10
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | The generic semaphore rewrite had a huge performance regression on AIM7 (and potentially other BKL-heavy benchmarks) because the generic semaphores had been rewritten to be simple to understand and fair. The latter, in particular, turns a semaphore-based BKL implementation into a mess of scheduling. The attempt to fix the performance regression failed miserably (see the previous commit 00b41ec2611dc98f87f30753ee00a53db648d662 'Revert "semaphore: fix"'), and so for now the simple and sane approach is to instead just go back to the old spinlock-based BKL implementation that never had any issues like this. This patch also has the advantage of being reported to fix the regression completely according to Yanmin Zhang, unlike the semaphore hack which still left a couple percentage point regression. As a spinlock, the BKL obviously has the potential to be a latency issue, but it's not really any different from any other spinlock in that respect. We do want to get rid of the BKL asap, but that has been the plan for several years. These days, the biggest users are in the tty layer (open/release in particular) and Alan holds out some hope: "tty release is probably a few months away from getting cured - I'm afraid it will almost certainly be the very last user of the BKL in tty to get fixed as it depends on everything else being sanely locked." so while we're not there yet, we do have a plan of action.

* [PATCH] lockdep: coreIngo Molnar2006-07-031-2/+3
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Do 'make oldconfig' and accept all the defaults for new config options - reboot into the kernel and if everything goes well it should boot up fine and you should have /proc/lockdep and /proc/lockdep_stats files. Typically if the lock validator finds some problem it will print out voluminous debug output that begins with "BUG: ..." and which syslog output can be used by kernel developers to figure out the precise locking scenario. What does the lock validator do? It "observes" and maps all locking rules as they occur dynamically (as triggered by the kernel's natural use of spinlocks, rwlocks, mutexes and rwsems). Whenever the lock validator subsystem detects a new locking scenario, it validates this new rule against the existing set of rules. If this new rule is consistent with the existing set of rules then the new rule is added transparently and the kernel continues as normal. If the new rule could create a deadlock scenario then this condition is printed out. When determining validity of locking, all possible "deadlock scenarios" are considered: assuming arbitrary number of CPUs, arbitrary irq context and task context constellations, running arbitrary combinations of all the existing locking scenarios. In a typical system this means millions of separate scenarios. This is why we call it a "locking correctness" validator - for all rules that are observed the lock validator proves it with mathematical certainty that a deadlock could not occur (assuming that the lock validator implementation itself is correct and its internal data structures are not corrupted by some other kernel subsystem). [see more details and conditionals of this statement in include/linux/lockdep.h and Documentation/lockdep-design.txt] Furthermore, this "all possible scenarios" property of the validator also enables the finding of complex, highly unlikely multi-CPU multi-context races via single single-context rules, increasing the likelyhood of finding bugs drastically. In practical terms: the lock validator already found a bug in the upstream kernel that could only occur on systems with 3 or more CPUs, and which needed 3 very unlikely code sequences to occur at once on the 3 CPUs. That bug was found and reported on a single-CPU system (!). So in essence a race will be found "piecemail-wise", triggering all the necessary components for the race, without having to reproduce the race scenario itself! In its short existence the lock validator found and reported many bugs before they actually caused a real deadlock. To further increase the efficiency of the validator, the mapping is not per "lock instance", but per "lock-class". For example, all struct inode objects in the kernel have inode->inotify_mutex. If there are 10,000 inodes cached, then there are 10,000 lock objects. But ->inotify_mutex is a single "lock type", and all locking activities that occur against ->inotify_mutex are "unified" into this single lock-class. The advantage of the lock-class approach is that all historical ->inotify_mutex uses are mapped into a single (and as narrow as possible) set of locking rules - regardless of how many different tasks or inode structures it took to build this set of rules. The set of rules persist during the lifetime of the kernel. To see the rough magnitude of checking that the lock validator does, here's a portion of /proc/lockdep_stats, fresh after bootup: lock-classes: 694 [max: 2048] direct dependencies: 1598 [max: 8192] indirect dependencies: 17896 all direct dependencies: 16206 dependency chains: 1910 [max: 8192] in-hardirq chains: 17 in-softirq chains: 105 in-process chains: 1065 stack-trace entries: 38761 [max: 131072] combined max dependencies: 2033928 hardirq-safe locks: 24 hardirq-unsafe locks: 176 softirq-safe locks: 53 softirq-unsafe locks: 137 irq-safe locks: 59 irq-unsafe locks: 176 The lock validator has observed 1598 actual single-thread locking patterns, and has validated all possible 2033928 distinct locking scenarios.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | After porting this fixlet to UML: http://linux.bkbits.net:8080/linux-2.5/cset@41791ab52lfMuF2i3V-eTIGRBbDYKQ , I've also added a warning which should refuse compilation with insane values for PREEMPT_ACTIVE... maybe we should simply move PREEMPT_ACTIVE out of architectures using GENERIC_IRQS.

Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
