This resulted in a heap of preempt warnings. Cure this by making nr_iowait_cpu() take a cpu number and fix up the callers to pass in the right number.

If we do not use CGROUP, function update_h_load won't update h_load. When the system has a large number of tasks far more than logical CPU number, the incorrect cfs_rq[cpu]->h_load value will cause load_balance() to pull too many tasks to the local CPU from the busiest CPU. So the busiest CPU keeps going in a round robin. That will hurt performance. The issue was found originally by a scientific calculation workload that developed by Yanmin. With that commit, the workload performance drops about 40%.

Provide means to add extra checks to the css dereference and use that in the scheduler to annotate its users. The addition of rq->lock to these checks is correct because the cgroup_subsys::attach() method takes the rq->lock for each task it moves, therefore by holding that lock, we ensure the task is pinned to the current cgroup and the RCU derefence is valid. That leaves one genuine race in __sched_setscheduler() where we used task_group() without holding any of the required locks and thus raced with the cgroup code. Solve this by moving the check under the appropriate lock. Signed-off-by: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Cc: "Paul E.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Mike reports that since e9e9250b (sched: Scale down cpu_power due to RT tasks), wake_affine() goes funny on RT tasks due to them still having a !0 weight and wake_affine() still subtracts that from the rq weight. Since nobody should be using se->weight for RT tasks, set the value to zero. Also, since we now use ->cpu_power to normalize rq weights to account for RT cpu usage, add that factor into the imbalance computation.

| * tracing/sched: Make preempt_schedule() notraceSteven Rostedt2010-06-031-3/+3
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | The function tracer code uses ftrace_preempt_disable() to disable preemption instead of normal preempt_disable(). But there's a slight race condition that may cause it to lose a preemption check. This was made to keep the function tracer from recursing on itself by disabling preemption then having the enable call the function tracer again, causing infinite recursion. The bug was assumed to happen if the call was just in schedule, but this is incorrect. The bug is caused by preempt_schedule() which is called by preempt_enable(). The calling of preempt_enable() when NEED_RESCHED was set would call preempt_schedule() which would call the function tracer again. By making the preempt_schedule() and add_preempt_count() notrace then this will prevent the inifinite recursion. This is because the add_preempt_count() would stop the preempt_enable() in the function tracer from calling preempt_schedule() again. The sub_preempt_count() is also made notrace just to keep it symmetric. Signed-off-by: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org>

They work just like versions without _locked* suffix but require the wait queue's lock to be held. Also __wake_up_locked() is now exported as to pair it with the above macros. The use case of this new facility is when one uses wait queue's lock to protect a data structure. This may be advantageous if the structure needs to be protected by a spinlock anyway. In particular, with additional spinlock the following code has to be used to wait for a condition: spin_lock(&data.lock); ... for (ret = 0; !ret && !(condition); ) { spin_unlock(&data.lock); ret = wait_event_interruptible(data.wqh, (condition)); spin_lock(&data.lock); } ... spin_unlock(&data.lock); This looks bizarre plus wait_event_interruptible() locks the wait queue's lock anyway so there is a unlock+lock sequence where it could be avoided. To avoid those problems and benefit from wait queue's lock, a code similar to the following should be used: /* Waiting */ spin_lock(&data.wqh.lock); ... ret = wait_event_interruptible_locked(data.wqh, (condition)); ... spin_unlock(&data.wqh.lock); /* Waiting exclusively */ spin_lock(&data.whq.lock); ... ret = wait_event_interruptible_exclusive_locked(data.whq, (condition)); ... spin_unlock(&data.whq.lock); /* Waking up */ spin_lock(&data.wqh.lock); ... wake_up_locked(&data.wqh); ... spin_unlock(&data.wqh.lock); When spin_lock_irq() is used matching versions of macros need to be used (*_locked_irq()).

All three roles are hardcoded into migration_thread() and determining which job is scheduled is slightly messy. This patch kills migration_thread and replaces all three uses with cpu_stop. The three different roles of migration_thread() are splitted into three separate cpu_stop callbacks - migration_cpu_stop(), active_load_balance_cpu_stop() and synchronize_sched_expedited_cpu_stop() - and each use case now simply asks cpu_stop to execute the callback as necessary. synchronize_sched_expedited() was implemented with private preallocated resources and custom multi-cpu queueing and waiting logic, both of which are provided by cpu_stop. synchronize_sched_expedited_count is made atomic and all other shared resources along with the mutex are dropped. synchronize_sched_expedited() also implemented a check to detect cases where not all the callback got executed on their assigned cpus and fall back to synchronize_sched(). If called with cpu hotplug blocked, cpu_stop already guarantees that and the condition cannot happen; otherwise, stop_machine() would break. However, this patch preserves the paranoid check using a cpumask to record on which cpus the stopper ran so that it can serve as a bisection point if something actually goes wrong theree. Because the internal execution state is no longer visible, rcu_expedited_torture_stats() is removed. This patch also renames cpu_stop threads to from "stopper/%d" to "migration/%d". The names of these threads ultimately don't matter and there's no reason to make unnecessary userland visible changes. With this patch applied, stop_machine() and sched now share the same resources. stop_machine() is faster without wasting any resources and sched migration users are much cleaner.

(*) in fact we clear PF_STARTING, which in effect enables TASK_WAKING. Cure the second issue by not setting TASK_WAKING in sched_fork(), but only temporarily in wake_up_new_task() while calling select_task_rq(). Cure the first by holding rq->lock around the select_task_rq() call, this will disable IRQs, this however requires that we push down the rq->lock release into select_task_rq_fair()'s cgroup stuff. Because select_task_rq_fair() still needs to drop the rq->lock we cannot fully get rid of TASK_WAKING.

And, if ->sched_class returns the "wrong" cpu, this likely means we raced with set_cpus_allowed() which was called for reason, why should sched_exec() retry and call ->select_task_rq() again? Change the code to call sched_class->select_task_rq() directly and do nothing if the returned cpu is wrong after re-checking under rq->lock.

Note that it is not trivial to move this spin_lock() into select_fallback_rq(), we must recheck the task was not migrated after we take the lock and other callers do not need this lock. To avoid the races with other callers of select_fallback_rq() which rely on TASK_WAKING, we also check p->state != TASK_WAKING and do nothing otherwise. The owner of TASK_WAKING must update ->cpus_allowed and choose the correct CPU anyway, and the subsequent __migrate_task() is just meaningless because p->se.on_rq must be false. Alternatively, we could change select_task_rq() to take rq->lock right after it calls sched_class->select_task_rq(), but this looks a bit ugly.

It is needed for cpuset_cpus_allowed_locked() but we can't take this lock in try_to_wake_up()->select_fallback_rq() path. - cpuset_lock() is deadlockable. Suppose that a task T bound to CPU takes callback_mutex. If cpu_down(CPU) happens before T drops callback_mutex stop_machine() preempts T, then migration_call(CPU_DEAD) tries to take cpuset_lock() and hangs forever because CPU is already dead and thus T can't be scheduled. - cpuset_cpus_allowed_locked() is deadlockable too. It takes task_lock() which is not irq-safe, but try_to_wake_up() can be called from irq. Kill them, and change select_fallback_rq() to use cpu_possible_mask, like we currently do without CONFIG_CPUSETS. Also, with or without this patch, with or without CONFIG_CPUSETS, the callers of select_fallback_rq() can race with each other or with set_cpus_allowed() pathes.
