| * ext4,jbd2: convert tracepoints to use major/minor numbersTheodore Ts'o2010-10-272-156/+251
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Unfortunately perf can't deal with anything other than direct structure accesses in the TP_printk() section. It will drop dead when it sees jbd2_dev_to_name() in the "print fmt" section of the tracepoint. Addresses-Google-Bug: 3138508 Signed-off-by: "Theodore Ts'o" <tytso@mit.edu>
| * ext4: fix kernel oops if the journal superblock has a non-zero j_errnoTheodore Ts'o2010-10-271-0/+10
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Commit 84061e0 fixed an accounting bug only to introduce the possibility of a kernel OOPS if the journal has a non-zero j_errno field indicating that the file system had detected a fs inconsistency. After the journal replay, if the journal superblock indicates that the file system has an error, this indication is transfered to the file system and then ext4_commit_super() is called to write this to the disk. But since the percpu counters are now initialized after the journal replay, the call to ext4_commit_super() will cause a kernel oops since it needs to use the percpu counters the ext4 superblock structure. The fix is to skip setting the ext4 free block and free inode fields if the percpu counter has not been set. Thanks to Ken Sumrall for reporting and analyzing the root causes of this bug.

| * ext4: implement writeback livelock avoidance using page taggingEric Sandeen2010-10-271-0/+2
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This is analogous to Jan Kara's commit, f446daaea9d4a420d16c606f755f3689dcb2d0ce mm: implement writeback livelock avoidance using page tagging but since we forked write_cache_pages, we need to reimplement it there (and in ext4_da_writepages, since range_cyclic handling was moved to there) If you start a large buffered IO to a file, and then set fsync after it, you'll find that fsync does not complete until the other IO stops. If you continue re-dirtying the file (say, putting dd with conv=notrunc in a loop), when fsync finally completes (after all IO is done), it reports via tracing that it has written many more pages than the file contains; in other words it has synced and re-synced pages in the file multiple times. This then leads to problems with our writeback_index update, since it advances it by pages written, and essentially sets writeback_index off the end of the file... With the following patch, we only sync as much as was dirty at the time of the sync. Signed-off-by: Eric Sandeen <sandeen@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: "Theodore Ts'o" <tytso@mit.edu>
| * fs: Add FITRIM ioctlLukas Czerner2010-10-271-0/+8

I takes fstrim_range structure as an argument. fstrim_range is definec in the include/fs.h and its definition is as follows. struct fstrim_range { start; len; minlen; } start - first Byte to trim len - number of Bytes to trim from start minlen - minimum extent length to trim, free extents shorter than this number of Bytes will be ignored. This will be rounded up to fs block size. It is also possible to specify NULL as an argument. In this case the arguments will set itself as follows: start = 0; len = ULLONG_MAX; minlen = 0; So it will trim the whole file system at one run. After the FITRIM is done, the number of actually discarded Bytes is stored in fstrim_range.len to give the user better insight on how much storage space has been really released for wear-leveling.

| * ext4: don't use ext4_allocation_contexts for tracingEric Sandeen2010-10-271-22/+29
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Many tracepoints were populating an ext4_allocation_context to pass in, but this requires a slab allocation even when tracepoints are off. In fact, 4 of 5 of these allocations were only for tracing. In addition, we were only using a small fraction of the 144 bytes of this structure for this purpose. We can do away with all these alloc/frees of the ac and simply pass in the bits we care about, instead. I tested this by turning on tracing and running through xfstests on x86_64. I did not actually do anything with the trace output, however. Signed-off-by: Eric Sandeen <sandeen@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: "Theodore Ts'o" <tytso@mit.edu>

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Our QA reported an oops in the ext4_mb_release_group_pa tracing, and Josef Bacik pointed out that it was because we may have a non-null but uninitialized ac_inode in the allocation context. I can reproduce it when running xfstests with ext4 tracepoints on, on a CONFIG_SLAB_DEBUG kernel. We call trace_ext4_mb_release_group_pa from 2 places, ext4_mb_discard_group_preallocations and ext4_mb_discard_lg_preallocations In both cases we allocate an ac as a container just for tracing (!) and never fill in the ac_inode. There's no reason to be assigning, testing, or printing it as far as I can see, so just remove it from the tracepoint.

| * jbd2: Fix I/O hang in jbd2_journal_release_jbd_inodeBrian King2010-10-271-1/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This fixes a hang seen in jbd2_journal_release_jbd_inode on a lot of Power 6 systems running with ext4. When we get in the hung state, all I/O to the disk in question gets blocked where we stay indefinitely. Looking at the task list, I can see we are stuck in jbd2_journal_release_jbd_inode waiting on a wake up. I added some debug code to detect this scenario and dump additional data if we were stuck in jbd2_journal_release_jbd_inode for longer than 30 minutes. When it hit, I was able to see that i_flags was 0, suggesting we missed the wake up. This patch changes i_flags to be an unsigned long, uses bit operators to access it, and adds barriers around the accesses. Prior to applying this patch, we were regularly hitting this hang on numerous systems in our test environment. After applying the patch, the hangs no longer occur.

A special dma_ctrl_cmd has been added to enable externally controlled DMA transfers. This is currently specific to the Freescale DMA controller, but can easily be made generic when another user is found. Signed-off-by: Ira W.

Why the tracepoints take two pointers to assign an integer is beyond my comprehension. But adding an extra case which treats the first pointer as an unsigned long when the second pointer is NULL including the back and forth type casting is just horrible. Convert the softirq tracepoints to take a single unsigned int argument for the softirq vector number and fix the call sites.

Changes to the enumeration/discovery logic: 1. Use Master Enable bit to signal end of the enumeration - agents may start their discovery process as soon as they see this bit set (Component Tag register was used before for this purpose). 2. Enumerator sets Component Tag (!= 0) immediately during device setup. This allows to identify the device if the redundant route exists in a RIO system.

But we can make use of kstat_irqs(). kstat_irqs() do the same calculation, If !CONFIG_GENERIC_HARDIRQ, it's not a big cost. (Both of the number of cpus and irqs are small.) If a system is very big and CONFIG_GENERIC_HARDIRQ, it does for_each_irq() for_each_cpu() - look up a radix tree - read desc->irq_stat[cpu] This seems not efficient. This patch adds kstat_irqs() for CONFIG_GENRIC_HARDIRQ and change the calculation as for_each_irq() look up radix tree for_each_cpu() - read desc->irq_stat[cpu] This reduces cost.

Therefore related functions are changed also. 'unsigned long' is typically used in other places in kernel as an opaque data type and that using this helps cleaning up a lot of warnings from sparse.

When a new namespace is created, a corresponding cgroup is automatically created too. The cgroup name is the pid of the process who did 'unshare' or the child of 'clone'. This cgroup is tied with the namespace because it prevents a process to escape the control group and use the post_clone callback, so the child cgroup inherits the values of the parent cgroup. Unfortunately, the more we use this cgroup and the more we are facing problems with it: (1) when a process unshares, the cgroup name may conflict with a previous cgroup with the same pid, so unshare or clone return -EEXIST (2) the cgroup creation is out of control because there may have an application creating several namespaces where the system will automatically create several cgroups in his back and let them on the cgroupfs (eg. a vrf based on the network namespace). (3) the mix of (1) and (2) force an administrator to regularly check and clean these cgroups. This patchset removes the ns_cgroup by adding a new flag to the cgroup and the cgroupfs mount option. It enables the copy of the parent cgroup when a child cgroup is created. We can then safely remove the ns_cgroup as this flag brings a compatibility. We have now to manually create and add the task to a cgroup, which is consistent with the cgroup framework. This patch: Sent as an answer to a previous thread around the ns_cgroup. https://lists.linux-foundation.org/pipermail/containers/2009-June/018627.html It adds a control file 'clone_children' for a cgroup. This control file is a boolean specifying if the child cgroup should be a clone of the parent cgroup or not. The default value is 'false'. This flag makes the child cgroup to call the post_clone callback of all the subsystem, if it is available. At present, the cpuset is the only one which had implemented the post_clone callback. The option can be set at mount time by specifying the 'clone_children' mount option. Signed-off-by: Daniel Lezcano <daniel.lezcano@free.fr> Signed-off-by: Serge E.

Since the operations are essentially memcpy_{from,to}io, new fb_memcpy_{from,to}fb macros have been defined and these are used instead. For Sparc, fb_{read,write} macros use sbus_{read,write}, so this defines new sbus_memcpy_{from,to}io functions the same as memcpy_{from,to}io but using sbus_{read,write}b instead of {read,write}b.
