* hugetlbfs: allow the creation of files suitable for MAP_PRIVATE on the vfs ↵Eric B Munson2009-09-221-1/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | internal mount This patchset adds a flag to mmap that allows the user to request that an anonymous mapping be backed with huge pages. This mapping will borrow functionality from the huge page shm code to create a file on the kernel internal mount and use it to approximate an anonymous mapping. The MAP_HUGETLB flag is a modifier to MAP_ANONYMOUS and will not work without both flags being preset. A new flag is necessary because there is no other way to hook into huge pages without creating a file on a hugetlbfs mount which wouldn't be MAP_ANONYMOUS. To userspace, this mapping will behave just like an anonymous mapping because the file is not accessible outside of the kernel. This patchset is meant to simplify the programming model. Presently there is a large chunk of boiler platecode, contained in libhugetlbfs, required to create private, hugepage backed mappings. This patch set would allow use of hugepages without linking to libhugetlbfs or having hugetblfs mounted. Unification of the VM code would provide these same benefits, but it has been resisted each time that it has been suggested for several reasons: it would break PAGE_SIZE assumptions across the kernel, it makes page-table abstractions really expensive, and it does not provide any benefit on architectures that do not support huge pages, incurring fast path penalties without providing any benefit on these architectures. This patch: There are two means of creating mappings backed by huge pages: 1. mmap() a file created on hugetlbfs 2. Use shm which creates a file on an internal mount which essentially maps it MAP_SHARED The internal mount is only used for shared mappings but there is very little that stops it being used for private mappings. This patch extends hugetlbfs_file_setup() to deal with the creation of files that will be mapped MAP_PRIVATE on the internal hugetlbfs mount. This extended API is used in a subsequent patch to implement the MAP_HUGETLB mmap() flag.

* mm: fix hugetlb bug due to user_shm_unlock callHugh Dickins2009-08-241-3/+5
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | 2.6.30's commit 8a0bdec194c21c8fdef840989d0d7b742bb5d4bc removed user_shm_lock() calls in hugetlb_file_setup() but left the user_shm_unlock call in shm_destroy(). In detail: Assume that can_do_hugetlb_shm() returns true and hence user_shm_lock() is not called in hugetlb_file_setup(). However, user_shm_unlock() is called in any case in shm_destroy() and in the following atomic_dec_and_lock(&up->__count) in free_uid() is executed and if up->__count gets zero, also cleanup_user_struct() is scheduled. Note that sched_destroy_user() is empty if CONFIG_USER_SCHED is not set. However, the ref counter up->__count gets unexpectedly non-positive and the corresponding structs are freed even though there are live references to them, resulting in a kernel oops after a lots of shmget(SHM_HUGETLB)/shmctl(IPC_RMID) cycles and CONFIG_USER_SCHED set. Hugh changed Stefan's suggested patch: can_do_hugetlb_shm() at the time of shm_destroy() may give a different answer from at the time of hugetlb_file_setup(). And fixed newseg()'s no_id error path, which has missed user_shm_unlock() ever since it came in 2.6.9.

* namespaces: ipc namespaces: implement support for posix msqueuesSerge E. Hallyn2009-04-074-43/+124
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Implement multiple mounts of the mqueue file system, and link it to usage of CLONE_NEWIPC. Each ipc ns has a corresponding mqueuefs superblock. When a user does clone(CLONE_NEWIPC) or unshare(CLONE_NEWIPC), the unshare will cause an internal mount of a new mqueuefs sb linked to the new ipc ns. When a user does 'mount -t mqueue mqueue /dev/mqueue', he mounts the mqueuefs superblock. Posix message queues can be worked with both through the mq_* system calls (see mq_overview(7)), and through the VFS through the mqueue mount. Any usage of mq_open() and friends will work with the acting task's ipc namespace. Any actions through the VFS will work with the mqueuefs in which the file was created. So if a user doesn't remount mqueuefs after unshare(CLONE_NEWIPC), mq_open("/ab") will not be reflected in "ls /dev/mqueue". If task a mounts mqueue for ipc_ns:1, then clones task b with a new ipcns, ipcns:2, and then task a is the last task in ipc_ns:1 to exit, then (1) ipc_ns:1 will be freed, (2) it's superblock will live on until task b umounts the corresponding mqueuefs, and vfs actions will continue to succeed, but (3) sb->s_fs_info will be NULL for the sb corresponding to the deceased ipc_ns:1. To make this happen, we must protect the ipc reference count when a) a task exits and drops its ipcns->count, since it might be dropping it to 0 and freeing the ipcns b) a task accesses the ipcns through its mqueuefs interface, since it bumps the ipcns refcount and might race with the last task in the ipcns exiting. So the kref is changed to an atomic_t so we can use atomic_dec_and_lock(&ns->count,mq_lock), and every access to the ipcns through ns = mqueuefs_sb->s_fs_info is protected by the same lock.

| * Do not account for the address space used by hugetlbfs using VM_ACCOUNTMel Gorman2009-02-101-3/+5
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | When overcommit is disabled, the core VM accounts for pages used by anonymous shared, private mappings and special mappings. It keeps track of VMAs that should be accounted for with VM_ACCOUNT and VMAs that never had a reserve with VM_NORESERVE. Overcommit for hugetlbfs is much riskier than overcommit for base pages due to contiguity requirements. It avoids overcommiting on both shared and private mappings using reservation counters that are checked and updated during mmap(). This ensures (within limits) that hugepages exist in the future when faults occurs or it is too easy to applications to be SIGKILLed. As hugetlbfs makes its own reservations of a different unit to the base page size, VM_ACCOUNT should never be set. Even if the units were correct, we would double account for the usage in the core VM and hugetlbfs. VM_NORESERVE may be set because an application can request no reserves be made for hugetlbfs at the risk of getting killed later. With commit fc8744adc870a8d4366908221508bb113d8b72ee, VM_NORESERVE and VM_ACCOUNT are getting unconditionally set for hugetlbfs-backed mappings. This breaks the accounting for both the core VM and hugetlbfs, can trigger an OOM storm when hugepage pools are too small lockups and corrupted counters otherwise are used. This patch brings hugetlbfs more in line with how the core VM treats VM_NORESERVE but prevents VM_ACCOUNT being set.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | The mmap_region() code would temporarily set the VM_ACCOUNT flag for anonymous shared mappings just to inform shmem_zero_setup() that it should enable accounting for the resulting shm object. It would then clear the flag after calling ->mmap (for the /dev/zero case) or doing shmem_zero_setup() (for the MAP_ANON case). This just resulted in vma merge issues, but also made for just unnecessary confusion. Use the already-existing VM_NORESERVE flag for this instead, and let shmem_{zero|file}_setup() just figure it out from that. This also happens to make it obvious that the new DRI2 GEM layer uses a non-reserving backing store for its object allocation - which is quite possibly not intentional. But since I didn't want to change semantics in this patch, I left it alone, and just updated the caller to use the new flag semantics. Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | System calls with an unsigned long long argument can't be converted with the standard wrappers since that would include a cast to long, which in turn means that we would lose the upper 32 bit on 32 bit architectures. Also semctl can't use the standard wrapper since it has a 'union' parameter. So we handle them as special case and add some extra wrappers instead.

| | * NOMMU: Make VMAs per MM as for MMU-mode linuxDavid Howells2009-01-081-0/+12
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Make VMAs per mm_struct as for MMU-mode linux. This solves two problems: (1) In SYSV SHM where nattch for a segment does not reflect the number of shmat's (and forks) done. (2) In mmap() where the VMA's vm_mm is set to point to the parent mm by an exec'ing process when VM_EXECUTABLE is specified, regardless of the fact that a VMA might be shared and already have its vm_mm assigned to another process or a dead process. A new struct (vm_region) is introduced to track a mapped region and to remember the circumstances under which it may be shared and the vm_list_struct structure is discarded as it's no longer required. This patch makes the following additional changes: (1) Regions are now allocated with alloc_pages() rather than kmalloc() and with no recourse to __GFP_COMP, so the pages are not composite. Instead, each page has a reference on it held by the region. Anything else that is interested in such a page will have to get a reference on it to retain it. When the pages are released due to unmapping, each page is passed to put_page() and will be freed when the page usage count reaches zero. (2) Excess pages are trimmed after an allocation as the allocation must be made as a power-of-2 quantity of pages. (3) VMAs are added to the parent MM's R/B tree and mmap lists. As an MM may end up with overlapping VMAs within the tree, the VMA struct address is appended to the sort key. (4) Non-anonymous VMAs are now added to the backing inode's prio list. (5) Holes may be punched in anonymous VMAs with munmap(), releasing parts of the backing region. The VMA and region structs will be split if necessary. (6) sys_shmdt() only releases one attachment to a SYSV IPC shared memory segment instead of all the attachments at that addresss. Multiple shmat()'s return the same address under NOMMU-mode instead of different virtual addresses as under MMU-mode. (7) Core dumping for ELF-FDPIC requires fewer exceptions for NOMMU-mode. (8) /proc/maps is now the global list of mapped regions, and may list bits that aren't actually mapped anywhere. (9) /proc/meminfo gains a line (tagged "MmapCopy") that indicates the amount of RAM currently allocated by mmap to hold mappable regions that can't be mapped directly. These are copies of the backing device or file if not anonymous. These changes make NOMMU mode more similar to MMU mode. The downside is that NOMMU mode requires some extra memory to track things over NOMMU without this patch (VMAs are no longer shared, and there are now region structs).

| * | mqueue: fix si_pid value in mqueue do_notify()Sukadev Bhattiprolu2009-01-081-1/+2
| |/ | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | If a process registers for asynchronous notification on a POSIX message queue, it gets a signal and a siginfo_t structure when a message arrives on the message queue. The si_pid in the siginfo_t structure is set to the PID of the process that sent the message to the message queue. The principle is the following: . when mq_notify(SIGEV_SIGNAL) is called, the caller registers for notification when a msg arrives. The associated pid structure is stroed into inode_info->notify_owner. Let's call this process P1. . when mq_send() is called by say P2, P2 sends a signal to P1 to notify him about msg arrival. The way .si_pid is set today is not correct, since it doesn't take into account the fact that the process that is sending the message might not be in the same namespace as the notified one. This patch proposes to set si_pid to the sender's pid into the notify_owner namespace.
