* memcg: remove experimental from swap account configKAMEZAWA Hiroyuki2010-08-111-2/+2
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | It's 11 months since we changed swap_map[] to indicates SWAP_HAS_CACHE. Since that, memcg's swap accounting has been very stable and it seems it can be maintained. So, I'd like to remove EXPERIMENTAL from the config.

| * kconfig CROSS_COMPILE optionRoland McGrath2010-02-021-0/+8
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This adds CROSS_COMPILE as a kconfig string so you can store it in .config. Then you can use plain "make" in the configured kernel build directory to do the right cross compilation without setting the command-line or environment variable every time. With this, you can set up different build directories for different kernel configurations, whether native or cross-builds, and then use the simple: make -C /build/dir M=module-source-dir idiom to build modules for any given target kernel, indicating which one by nothing but the build directory chosen. I tried a version that defaults the string with env="CROSS_COMPILE" so that in a "make oldconfig" with CROSS_COMPILE in the environment you can just hit return to store the way you're building it. But the kconfig prompt for strings doesn't give you any way to say you want an empty string instead of the default, so I punted that.

* | | blk-cgroup: config options re-arrangementVivek Goyal2010-04-261-0/+27
|/ / | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This patch fixes few usability and configurability issues. o All the cgroup based controller options are configurable from "Genral Setup/Control Group Support/" menu. blkio is the only exception. Hence make this option visible in above menu and make it configurable from there to bring it inline with rest of the cgroup based controllers. o Get rid of CONFIG_DEBUG_CFQ_IOSCHED. This option currently does two things. - Enable printing of cgroup paths in blktrace - Enables CONFIG_DEBUG_BLK_CGROUP, which in turn displays additional stat files in cgroup. If we are using group scheduling, blktrace data is of not really much use if cgroup information is not present. To get this data, currently one has to also enable CONFIG_DEBUG_CFQ_IOSCHED, which in turn brings the overhead of all the additional debug stat files which is not desired. Hence, this patch moves printing of cgroup paths under CONFIG_CFQ_GROUP_IOSCHED. This allows us to get rid of CONFIG_DEBUG_CFQ_IOSCHED completely. Now all the debug stat files are controlled only by CONFIG_DEBUG_BLK_CGROUP which can be enabled through config menu.

* | cgroup: implement eventfd-based generic API for notificationsKirill A. Shutemov2010-03-121-0/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This patchset introduces eventfd-based API for notifications in cgroups and implements memory notifications on top of it. It uses statistics in memory controler to track memory usage. Output of time(1) on building kernel on tmpfs: Root cgroup before changes: make -j2 506.37 user 60.93s system 193% cpu 4:52.77 total Non-root cgroup before changes: make -j2 507.14 user 62.66s system 193% cpu 4:54.74 total Root cgroup after changes (0 thresholds): make -j2 507.13 user 62.20s system 193% cpu 4:53.55 total Non-root cgroup after changes (0 thresholds): make -j2 507.70 user 64.20s system 193% cpu 4:55.70 total Root cgroup after changes (1 thresholds, never crossed): make -j2 506.97 user 62.20s system 193% cpu 4:53.90 total Non-root cgroup after changes (1 thresholds, never crossed): make -j2 507.55 user 64.08s system 193% cpu 4:55.63 total This patch: Introduce the write-only file "cgroup.event_control" in every cgroup. To register new notification handler you need: - create an eventfd; - open a control file to be monitored. Callbacks register_event() and unregister_event() must be defined for the control file; - write "<event_fd> <control_fd> <args>" to cgroup.event_control. Interpretation of args is defined by control file implementation; eventfd will be woken up by control file implementation or when the cgroup is removed. To unregister notification handler just close eventfd. If you need notification functionality for a control file you have to implement callbacks register_event() and unregister_event() in the struct cftype.

However, if all the other CPUs are in dyntick-idle mode, and if this CPU is in a quiescent state (which it is for RCU-bh and RCU-sched any time that we are considering going into dyntick-idle mode), then the grace period is instantly complete. This patch therefore repeatedly invokes the RCU grace-period machinery in order to force any needed grace periods to complete quickly. It does so a limited number of times in order to prevent starvation by an RCU callback function that might pass itself to call_rcu(). However, if any CPU other than the current one is not in dyntick-idle mode, fall back to simply checking (with fix to bug noted by Lai Jiangshan). Also, take advantage of last grace-period forcing, the opportunity to do so noted by Steve Rostedt. And apply simplified #ifdef condition suggested by Frederic Weisbecker. Signed-off-by: Paul E.

Russell King said: : Testing on a Cortex A9 model: : - lzo decompressor is 65% of the time gzip takes to decompress a kernel : - lzo kernel is 9% larger than a gzip kernel : : which I'm happy to say confirms your figures when comparing the two. : : However, when comparing your new gzip code to the old gzip code: : - new is 99% of the size of the old code : - new takes 42% of the time to decompress than the old code : : What this means is that for a proper comparison, the results get even better: : - lzo is 7.5% larger than the old gzip'd kernel image : - lzo takes 28% of the time that the old gzip code took : : So the expense seems definitely worth the effort. The only reason I : can think of ever using gzip would be if you needed the additional : compression (eg, because you have limited flash to store the image.) : : I would argue that the default for ARM should therefore be LZO. This patch: The lzo compressor is worse than gzip at compression, but faster at extraction. Here are some figures for an ARM board I'm working on: Uncompressed size: 3.24Mo gzip 1.61Mo 0.72s lzo 1.75Mo 0.48s So for a compression ratio that is still relatively close to gzip, it's much faster to extract, at least in that case. This part contains: - Makefile routine to support lzo compression - Fixes to the existing lzo compressor so that it can be used in compressed kernels - wrapper around the existing lzo1x_decompress, as it only extracts one block at a time, while we need to extract a whole file here - config dialog for kernel compression [akpm@linux-foundation.org: coding-style fixes] [akpm@linux-foundation.org: cleanup] Signed-off-by: Albin Tonnerre <albin.tonnerre@free-electrons.com> Tested-by: Wu Zhangjin <wuzhangjin@gmail.com> Acked-by: "H.

* nommu: fix malloc performance by adding uninitialized flagJie Zhang2009-12-151-0/+22
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | The NOMMU code currently clears all anonymous mmapped memory. While this is what we want in the default case, all memory allocation from userspace under NOMMU has to go through this interface, including malloc() which is allowed to return uninitialized memory. This can easily be a significant performance penalty. So for constrained embedded systems were security is irrelevant, allow people to avoid clearing memory unnecessarily.

| * | sysctl: Reduce sys_sysctl to a compatibility wrapper around /proc/sysEric W. Biederman2009-11-111-0/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | To simply maintenance and to be able to remove all of the binary sysctl support from various subsystems I have rewritten the binary sysctl code as a compatibility wrapper around proc/sys. The code is built around a hard coded table based on the table in sysctl_check.c that lists all of our current binary sysctls and provides enough information to convert from the sysctl binary input into into ascii and back again. New in this patch is the realization that the only dynamic entries that need to be handled have ifname as the asscii string and ifindex as their ctl_name. When a sys_sysctl is called the code now looks in the translation table converting the binary name to the path under /proc where the value is to be found. Opens that file, and calls into a format conversion wrapper that calls fop->read and then fop->write as appropriate. Since in practice the practically no one uses or tests sys_sysctl rewritting the code to be beautiful is a little silly. The redeeming merit of this work is it allows us to rip out all of the binary sysctl syscall support from everywhere else in the tree. Allowing us to remove a lot of dead (after this patch) and barely maintained code. In addition it becomes much easier to optimize the sysctl implementation for being the backing store of /proc/sys, without having to worry about sys_sysctl. Signed-off-by: Eric W.

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.

Also if the arch does not set some inline defines the generic code might set them; again depending on config options. This makes it unnecessary hard to figure out when and which lock functions are inlined. Aside of that it makes it way harder and messier for -rt to manipulate the lock functions. Convert the inlining decision to CONFIG switches. Each lock function is inlined depending on CONFIG_INLINE_*. The configs implement the existing dependencies. The architecture code can select ARCH_INLINE_* to signal that it wants the corresponding lock function inlined. ARCH_INLINE_* is necessary as Kconfig ignores "depends on" restrictions when a config element is selected. No functional change.

In the past few months the perfcounters subsystem has grown out its initial role of counting hardware events, and has become (and is becoming) a much broader generic event enumeration, reporting, logging, monitoring, analysis facility. Naming its core object 'perf_counter' and naming the subsystem 'perfcounters' has become more and more of a misnomer. With pending code like hw-breakpoints support the 'counter' name is less and less appropriate. All in one, we've decided to rename the subsystem to 'performance events' and to propagate this rename through all fields, variables and API names. (in an ABI compatible fashion) The word 'event' is also a bit shorter than 'counter' - which makes it slightly more convenient to write/handle as well. Thanks goes to Stephane Eranian who first observed this misnomer and suggested a rename. User-space tooling and ABI compatibility is not affected - this patch should be function-invariant. (Also, defconfigs were not touched to keep the size down.) This patch has been generated via the following script: FILES=$(find * -type f | grep -vE 'oprofile|[^K]config') sed -i \ -e 's/PERF_EVENT_/PERF_RECORD_/g' \ -e 's/PERF_COUNTER/PERF_EVENT/g' \ -e 's/perf_counter/perf_event/g' \ -e 's/nb_counters/nb_events/g' \ -e 's/swcounter/swevent/g' \ -e 's/tpcounter_event/tp_event/g' \ $FILES for N in $(find . -name perf_counter.[ch]); do M=$(echo $N | sed 's/perf_counter/perf_event/g') mv $N $M done FILES=$(find . -name perf_event.*) sed -i \ -e 's/COUNTER_MASK/REG_MASK/g' \ -e 's/COUNTER/EVENT/g' \ -e 's/\<event\>/event_id/g' \ -e 's/counter/event/g' \ -e 's/Counter/Event/g' \ $FILES ... to keep it as correct as possible. This script can also be used by anyone who has pending perfcounters patches - it converts a Linux kernel tree over to the new naming. We tried to time this change to the point in time where the amount of pending patches is the smallest: the end of the merge window. Namespace clashes were fixed up in a preparatory patch - and some stylistic fallout will be fixed up in a subsequent patch. ( NOTE: 'counters' are still the proper terminology when we deal with hardware registers - and these sed scripts are a bit over-eager in renaming them. I've undone some of that, but in case there's something left where 'counter' would be better than 'event' we can undo that on an individual basis instead of touching an otherwise nicely automated patch. ) Suggested-by: Stephane Eranian <eranian@google.com> Acked-by: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Acked-by: Paul Mackerras <paulus@samba.org> Reviewed-by: Arjan van de Ven <arjan@linux.intel.com> Cc: Mike Galbraith <efault@gmx.de> Cc: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com> Cc: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@gmail.com> Cc: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org> Cc: Benjamin Herrenschmidt <benh@kernel.crashing.org> Cc: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com> Cc: Kyle McMartin <kyle@mcmartin.ca> Cc: Martin Schwidefsky <schwidefsky@de.ibm.com> Cc: "David S.

One choice says it scales down nicely, the other explicitly has a 'depends on PREEMPT' attached to it... So add "scales down nicely" to TREE_PREEMPT_RCU to match that of TREE_RCU.
