* rcu: Merge preemptable-RCU functionality into hierarchical RCUPaul E. McKenney2009-08-231-6/+16
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Create a kernel/rcutree_plugin.h file that contains definitions for preemptable RCU (or, under the #else branch of the #ifdef, empty definitions for the classic non-preemptable semantics). These definitions fit into plugins defined in kernel/rcutree.c for this purpose. This variant of preemptable RCU uses a new algorithm whose read-side expense is roughly that of classic hierarchical RCU under CONFIG_PREEMPT. This new algorithm's update-side expense is similar to that of classic hierarchical RCU, and, in absence of read-side preemption or blocking, is exactly that of classic hierarchical RCU. Perhaps more important, this new algorithm has a much simpler implementation, saving well over 1,000 lines of code compared to mainline's implementation of preemptable RCU, which will hopefully be retired in favor of this new algorithm. The simplifications are obtained by maintaining per-task nesting state for running tasks, and using a simple lock-protected algorithm to handle accounting when tasks block within RCU read-side critical sections, making use of lessons learned while creating numerous user-level RCU implementations over the past 18 months.

* | rcu: Remove Classic RCUPaul E. McKenney2009-06-241-10/+2
|/ | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Remove Classic RCU, given that the combination of Tree RCU and the proposed Bloatwatch RCU do everything that Classic RCU can with fewer bugs. Tree RCU has been default in x86 builds for almost six months, and seems to be quite reliable, so there does not seem to be much justification for keeping the Classic RCU code and config complexity around anymore.

With this we add a config option (CONFIG_STRIP_ASM_SYMS) that will cause the build to supply -X to the linker to tell it to strip temporary local symbols. This doesn't seem to cause gdb any problems.

| * | | | | Create a dynamically sized pool of threads for doing very slow work itemsDavid Howells2009-04-031-0/+12
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Create a dynamically sized pool of threads for doing very slow work items, such as invoking mkdir() or rmdir() - things that may take a long time and may sleep, holding mutexes/semaphores and hogging a thread, and are thus unsuitable for workqueues. The number of threads is always at least a settable minimum, but more are started when there's more work to do, up to a limit. Because of the nature of the load, it's not suitable for a 1-thread-per-CPU type pool. A system with one CPU may well want several threads. This is used by FS-Cache to do slow caching operations in the background, such as looking up, creating or deleting cache objects.

There's code in cpusets that doesn't depend on SMP. This patch surrounds the minimum amount of cpusets code with #ifdef CONFIG_SMP in order to allow cpusets to build/run on UP systems (for testing purposes under UML).

Because * It can be calculated very easily if all necessary information is written in Kconfig. * It's not necessary to annoying people at every swapon(). In other view, now, memory usage per swp_entry is reduced to 2bytes from 8bytes(64bit) and I think it's reasonably small.

Both compressors give smaller sizes than gzip. Lzma's decompresses faster than bzip2. It also supports ramdisks and initramfs' compressed using these two compressors. The functionality has been successfully used for a couple of years by the udpcast project This version applies to "tip" kernel 2.6.28 This part contains: - support for new compressions (bzip2 and lzma) in initramfs and old-style ramdisk - config dialog for kernel compression (but new kernel compressions not yet supported) Signed-off-by: Alain Knaff <alain@knaff.lu> Signed-off-by: H.

It's just that we don't bother with actually asking about them when we're not embedded, we just take their default values (which is usually 'y' - the options add features that may not be worth it in a constrained environment).
