* / memcg: fix page_cgroup allocationKAMEZAWA Hiroyuki2008-10-231-0/+2
|/ | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | page_cgroup_init() is called from mem_cgroup_init(). But at this point, we cannot call alloc_bootmem(). (and this caused panic at boot.) This patch moves page_cgroup_init() to init/main.c. Time table is following: == parse_args(). # we can trust mem_cgroup_subsys.disabled bit after this. .... cgroup_init_early() # "early" init of cgroup. .... setup_arch() # memmap is allocated. ... page_cgroup_init(); mem_init(); # we cannot call alloc_bootmem after this. .... cgroup_init() # mem_cgroup is initialized. == Before page_cgroup_init(), mem_map must be initialized. So, I added page_cgroup_init() to init/main.c directly. (*) maybe this is not very clean but - cgroup_init_early() is too early - in cgroup_init(), we have to use vmalloc instead of alloc_bootmem(). use of vmalloc area in x86-32 is important and we should avoid very large vmalloc() in x86-32. So, we want to use alloc_bootmem() and added page_cgroup_init() directly to init/main.c [akpm@linux-foundation.org: remove unneeded/bad mem_cgroup_subsys declaration] [akpm@linux-foundation.org: fix build] Acked-by: Balbir Singh <balbir@linux.vnet.ibm.com> Tested-by: Balbir Singh <balbir@linux.vnet.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki <kamezawa.hiroyu@jp.fujitsu.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

| * tracing/fastboot: add better resolution to initcall debug/tracingTim Bird2008-10-141-2/+2
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Change the time resolution for initcall_debug to microseconds, from milliseconds. This is handy to determine which initcalls you want to work on for faster booting. One one of my test machines, over 90% of the initcalls are less than a millisecond and (without this patch) these are all reported as 0 msecs. Working on the 900 us ones is more important than the 4 us ones. With 'quiet' on the kernel command line, this adds no significant overhead to kernel boot time.

| * tracing/fastboot: get the initcall name before it disappearsFrederic Weisbecker2008-10-141-2/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | After some initcall traces, some initcall names may be inconsistent. That's because these functions will disappear from the .init section and also their name from the symbols table. So we have to copy the name of the function in a buffer large enough during the trace appending. It is not costly for the ring_buffer because the number of initcall entries is commonly not really large.

| * tracing/fastboot: add a script to visualize the kernel boot process / timeArjan van de Ven2008-10-141-1/+2
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | When optimizing the kernel boot time, it's very valuable to visualize what is going on at which time. In addition, with the fastboot asynchronous initcall level, it's very valuable to see which initcall gets run where and when. This patch adds a script to turn a dmesg into a SVG graph (that can be shown with tools such as InkScape, Gimp or Firefox) and a small change to the initcall code to print the PID of the thread calling the initcall (so that the script can work out the parallelism).

| * ftrace: mcount call site on boot nops coreSteven Rostedt2008-10-141-0/+3
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This is the infrastructure to the converting the mcount call sites recorded by the __mcount_loc section into nops on boot. It also allows for using these sites to enable tracing as normal. When the __mcount_loc section is used, the "ftraced" kernel thread is disabled. This uses the current infrastructure to record the mcount call sites as well as convert them to nops. The mcount function is kept as a stub on boot up and not converted to the ftrace_record_ip function. We use the ftrace_record_ip to only record from the table. This patch does not handle modules. That comes with a later patch. Signed-off-by: Steven Rostedt <srostedt@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>

Inspired from the Linux Kernel Markers. Allows complete typing verification by declaring both tracing statement inline functions and probe registration/unregistration static inline functions within the same macro "DEFINE_TRACE". No format string is required. See the tracepoint Documentation and Samples patches for usage examples. Taken from the documentation patch : "A tracepoint placed in code provides a hook to call a function (probe) that you can provide at runtime. A tracepoint can be "on" (a probe is connected to it) or "off" (no probe is attached). When a tracepoint is "off" it has no effect, except for adding a tiny time penalty (checking a condition for a branch) and space penalty (adding a few bytes for the function call at the end of the instrumented function and adds a data structure in a separate section). When a tracepoint is "on", the function you provide is called each time the tracepoint is executed, in the execution context of the caller. When the function provided ends its execution, it returns to the caller (continuing from the tracepoint site). You can put tracepoints at important locations in the code. They are lightweight hooks that can pass an arbitrary number of parameters, which prototypes are described in a tracepoint declaration placed in a header file." Addition and removal of tracepoints is synchronized by RCU using the scheduler (and preempt_disable) as guarantees to find a quiescent state (this is really RCU "classic"). The update side uses rcu_barrier_sched() with call_rcu_sched() and the read/execute side uses "preempt_disable()/preempt_enable()". We make sure the previous array containing probes, which has been scheduled for deletion by the rcu callback, is indeed freed before we proceed to the next update. It therefore limits the rate of modification of a single tracepoint to one update per RCU period. The objective here is to permit fast batch add/removal of probes on _different_ tracepoints. Changelog : - Use #name ":" #proto as string to identify the tracepoint in the tracepoint table. This will make sure not type mismatch happens due to connexion of a probe with the wrong type to a tracepoint declared with the same name in a different header. - Add tracepoint_entry_free_old. - Change __TO_TRACE to get rid of the 'i' iterator. Masami Hiramatsu <mhiramat@redhat.com> : Tested on x86-64. Performance impact of a tracepoint : same as markers, except that it adds about 70 bytes of instructions in an unlikely branch of each instrumented function (the for loop, the stack setup and the function call). It currently adds a memory read, a test and a conditional branch at the instrumentation site (in the hot path). Immediate values will eventually change this into a load immediate, test and branch, which removes the memory read which will make the i-cache impact smaller (changing the memory read for a load immediate removes 3-4 bytes per site on x86_32 (depending on mov prefixes), or 7-8 bytes on x86_64, it also saves the d-cache hit). About the performance impact of tracepoints (which is comparable to markers), even without immediate values optimizations, tests done by Hideo Aoki on ia64 show no regression. His test case was using hackbench on a kernel where scheduler instrumentation (about 5 events in code scheduler code) was added. Quoting Hideo Aoki about Markers : I evaluated overhead of kernel marker using linux-2.6-sched-fixes git tree, which includes several markers for LTTng, using an ia64 server. While the immediate trace mark feature isn't implemented on ia64, there is no major performance regression. So, I think that we don't have any issues to propose merging marker point patches into Linus's tree from the viewpoint of performance impact. I prepared two kernels to evaluate. The first one was compiled without CONFIG_MARKERS. The second one was enabled CONFIG_MARKERS. I downloaded the original hackbench from the following URL: http://devresources.linux-foundation.org/craiger/hackbench/src/hackbench.c I ran hackbench 5 times in each condition and calculated the average and difference between the kernels. The parameter of hackbench: every 50 from 50 to 800 The number of CPUs of the server: 2, 4, and 8 Below is the results. As you can see, major performance regression wasn't found in any case. Even if number of processes increases, differences between marker-enabled kernel and marker- disabled kernel doesn't increase. Moreover, if number of CPUs increases, the differences doesn't increase either. Curiously, marker-enabled kernel is better than marker-disabled kernel in more than half cases, although I guess it comes from the difference of memory access pattern. * 2 CPUs Number of | without | with | diff | diff | processes | Marker [Sec] | Marker [Sec] | [Sec] | [%] | -------------------------------------------------------------- 50 | 4.811 | 4.872 | +0.061 | +1.27 | 100 | 9.854 | 10.309 | +0.454 | +4.61 | 150 | 15.602 | 15.040 | -0.562 | -3.6 | 200 | 20.489 | 20.380 | -0.109 | -0.53 | 250 | 25.798 | 25.652 | -0.146 | -0.56 | 300 | 31.260 | 30.797 | -0.463 | -1.48 | 350 | 36.121 | 35.770 | -0.351 | -0.97 | 400 | 42.288 | 42.102 | -0.186 | -0.44 | 450 | 47.778 | 47.253 | -0.526 | -1.1 | 500 | 51.953 | 52.278 | +0.325 | +0.63 | 550 | 58.401 | 57.700 | -0.701 | -1.2 | 600 | 63.334 | 63.222 | -0.112 | -0.18 | 650 | 68.816 | 68.511 | -0.306 | -0.44 | 700 | 74.667 | 74.088 | -0.579 | -0.78 | 750 | 78.612 | 79.582 | +0.970 | +1.23 | 800 | 85.431 | 85.263 | -0.168 | -0.2 | -------------------------------------------------------------- * 4 CPUs Number of | without | with | diff | diff | processes | Marker [Sec] | Marker [Sec] | [Sec] | [%] | -------------------------------------------------------------- 50 | 2.586 | 2.584 | -0.003 | -0.1 | 100 | 5.254 | 5.283 | +0.030 | +0.56 | 150 | 8.012 | 8.074 | +0.061 | +0.76 | 200 | 11.172 | 11.000 | -0.172 | -1.54 | 250 | 13.917 | 14.036 | +0.119 | +0.86 | 300 | 16.905 | 16.543 | -0.362 | -2.14 | 350 | 19.901 | 20.036 | +0.135 | +0.68 | 400 | 22.908 | 23.094 | +0.186 | +0.81 | 450 | 26.273 | 26.101 | -0.172 | -0.66 | 500 | 29.554 | 29.092 | -0.461 | -1.56 | 550 | 32.377 | 32.274 | -0.103 | -0.32 | 600 | 35.855 | 35.322 | -0.533 | -1.49 | 650 | 39.192 | 38.388 | -0.804 | -2.05 | 700 | 41.744 | 41.719 | -0.025 | -0.06 | 750 | 45.016 | 44.496 | -0.520 | -1.16 | 800 | 48.212 | 47.603 | -0.609 | -1.26 | -------------------------------------------------------------- * 8 CPUs Number of | without | with | diff | diff | processes | Marker [Sec] | Marker [Sec] | [Sec] | [%] | -------------------------------------------------------------- 50 | 2.094 | 2.072 | -0.022 | -1.07 | 100 | 4.162 | 4.273 | +0.111 | +2.66 | 150 | 6.485 | 6.540 | +0.055 | +0.84 | 200 | 8.556 | 8.478 | -0.078 | -0.91 | 250 | 10.458 | 10.258 | -0.200 | -1.91 | 300 | 12.425 | 12.750 | +0.325 | +2.62 | 350 | 14.807 | 14.839 | +0.032 | +0.22 | 400 | 16.801 | 16.959 | +0.158 | +0.94 | 450 | 19.478 | 19.009 | -0.470 | -2.41 | 500 | 21.296 | 21.504 | +0.208 | +0.98 | 550 | 23.842 | 23.979 | +0.137 | +0.57 | 600 | 26.309 | 26.111 | -0.198 | -0.75 | 650 | 28.705 | 28.446 | -0.259 | -0.9 | 700 | 31.233 | 31.394 | +0.161 | +0.52 | 750 | 34.064 | 33.720 | -0.344 | -1.01 | 800 | 36.320 | 36.114 | -0.206 | -0.57 | -------------------------------------------------------------- Signed-off-by: Mathieu Desnoyers <mathieu.desnoyers@polymtl.ca> Acked-by: Masami Hiramatsu <mhiramat@redhat.com> Acked-by: 'Peter Zijlstra' <peterz@infradead.org> Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>
* | container freezer: implement freezer cgroup subsystemMatt Helsley2008-10-201-0/+7
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This patch implements a new freezer subsystem in the control groups framework. It provides a way to stop and resume execution of all tasks in a cgroup by writing in the cgroup filesystem. The freezer subsystem in the container filesystem defines a file named freezer.state. Writing "FROZEN" to the state file will freeze all tasks in the cgroup. Subsequently writing "RUNNING" will unfreeze the tasks in the cgroup. Reading will return the current state. * Examples of usage : # mkdir /containers/freezer # mount -t cgroup -ofreezer freezer /containers # mkdir /containers/0 # echo $some_pid > /containers/0/tasks to get status of the freezer subsystem : # cat /containers/0/freezer.state RUNNING to freeze all tasks in the container : # echo FROZEN > /containers/0/freezer.state # cat /containers/0/freezer.state FREEZING # cat /containers/0/freezer.state FROZEN to unfreeze all tasks in the container : # echo RUNNING > /containers/0/freezer.state # cat /containers/0/freezer.state RUNNING This is the basic mechanism which should do the right thing for user space task in a simple scenario. It's important to note that freezing can be incomplete. In that case we return EBUSY. This means that some tasks in the cgroup are busy doing something that prevents us from completely freezing the cgroup at this time. After EBUSY, the cgroup will remain partially frozen -- reflected by freezer.state reporting "FREEZING" when read. The state will remain "FREEZING" until one of these things happens: 1) Userspace cancels the freezing operation by writing "RUNNING" to the freezer.state file 2) Userspace retries the freezing operation by writing "FROZEN" to the freezer.state file (writing "FREEZING" is not legal and returns EIO) 3) The tasks that blocked the cgroup from entering the "FROZEN" state disappear from the cgroup's set of tasks.

The biggest problem with vmap is actually vunmap. Presently this requires a global kernel TLB flush, which on most architectures is a broadcast IPI to all CPUs to flush the cache. This is all done under a global lock. As the number of CPUs increases, so will the number of vunmaps a scaled workload will want to perform, and so will the cost of a global TLB flush. This gives terrible quadratic scalability characteristics. Another problem is that the entire vmap subsystem works under a single lock. It is a rwlock, but it is actually taken for write in all the fast paths, and the read locking would likely never be run concurrently anyway, so it's just pointless. This is a rewrite of vmap subsystem to solve those problems. The existing vmalloc API is implemented on top of the rewritten subsystem. The TLB flushing problem is solved by using lazy TLB unmapping. vmap addresses do not have to be flushed immediately when they are vunmapped, because the kernel will not reuse them again (would be a use-after-free) until they are reallocated. So the addresses aren't allocated again until a subsequent TLB flush. A single TLB flush then can flush multiple vunmaps from each CPU. XEN and PAT and such do not like deferred TLB flushing because they can't always handle multiple aliasing virtual addresses to a physical address. They now call vm_unmap_aliases() in order to flush any deferred mappings. That call is very expensive (well, actually not a lot more expensive than a single vunmap under the old scheme), however it should be OK if not called too often. The virtual memory extent information is stored in an rbtree rather than a linked list to improve the algorithmic scalability. There is a per-CPU allocator for small vmaps, which amortizes or avoids global locking. To use the per-CPU interface, the vm_map_ram / vm_unmap_ram interfaces must be used in place of vmap and vunmap. Vmalloc does not use these interfaces at the moment, so it will not be quite so scalable (although it will use lazy TLB flushing). As a quick test of performance, I ran a test that loops in the kernel, linearly mapping then touching then unmapping 4 pages. Different numbers of tests were run in parallel on an 4 core, 2 socket opteron. Results are in nanoseconds per map+touch+unmap. threads vanilla vmap rewrite 1 14700 2900 2 33600 3000 4 49500 2800 8 70631 2900 So with a 8 cores, the rewritten version is already 25x faster. In a slightly more realistic test (although with an older and less scalable version of the patch), I ripped the not-very-good vunmap batching code out of XFS, and implemented the large buffer mapping with vm_map_ram and vm_unmap_ram... along with a couple of other tricks, I was able to speed up a large directory workload by 20x on a 64 CPU system. I believe vmap/vunmap is actually sped up a lot more than 20x on such a system, but I'm running into other locks now. vmap is pretty well blown off the profiles.

* | initramfs: add option to preserve mtime from initramfs cpio imagesNye Liu2008-10-161-0/+53

This patch adds an INITRAMFS_PRESERVE_MTIME option that allows mtimes stored in the cpio image to be used when constructing the initramfs. For embedded applications that run exclusively out of the initramfs, this is invaluable: When building embedded application initramfs images, its nice to know when the files were actually created during the build process - that makes it easier to see what files were modified when so we can compare the files that are being used on the image with the files used during the build process. This might help (for example) to determine if the target system has all the updated files you expect to see w/o having to check MD5s etc. In our environment, the whole system runs off the initramfs partition, and seeing the modified times of the shared libraries (for example) helps us find bugs that may have been introduced by the build system incorrectly propogating outdated shared libraries into the image. Similarly, many of the initializion/configuration files in /etc might be dynamically built by the build system, and knowing when they were modified helps us sanity check whether the target system has the "latest" files etc. Finally, we might use last modified times to determine whether a hot fix should be applied or not to the running ramfs.

This patch adds a script to turn a dmesg into a SVG graph (that can be shown with tools such as InkScape, Gimp or Firefox) and a small change to the initcall code to print the PID of the thread calling the initcall (so that the script can work out the parallelism).

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | The kernel has this really nice facility where if you put "initcall_debug" on the kernel commandline, it'll print which function it's going to execute just before calling an initcall, and then after the call completes it will 1) print if it had an error code 2) checks for a few simple bugs (like leaving irqs off) and 3) print how long the init call took in milliseconds. While trying to optimize the boot speed of my laptop, I have been loving number 3 to figure out what to optimize... ... and then I wished that the same thing was done for module loading. This patch makes the module loader use this exact same functionality; it's a logical extension in my view (since modules are just sort of late binding initcalls anyway) and so far I've found it quite useful in finding where things are too slow in my boot.

| * | Full conversion to early_initcall() interface, remove old interfaceEduard - Gabriel Munteanu2008-07-261-22/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | A previous patch added the early_initcall(), to allow a cleaner hooking of pre-SMP initcalls. Now we remove the older interface, converting all existing users to the new one.

| * | Better interface for hooking early initcallsEduard - Gabriel Munteanu2008-07-261-2/+11
| |/ | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Added early initcall (pre-SMP) support, using an identical interface to that of regular initcalls. Functions called from do_pre_smp_initcalls() could be converted to use this cleaner interface. This is required by CPU hotplug, because early users have to register notifiers before going SMP. One such CPU hotplug user is the relay interface with buffer-only channels, which needs to register such a notifier, to be usable in early code. This in turn is used by kmemtrace.
