* | module: fix reference to mod->percpu after freeing module.Rusty Russell2010-05-311-1/+4
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Rafael sees a sometimes crash at precpu_modfree from kernel/module.c; it only occurred with another (since-reverted) patch, but that patch simply changed timing to uncover this bug, it was otherwise unrelated. The comment about the mod being freed is self-explanatory, but neither Tejun nor I read it. This bug was introduced in 259354deaa, after it had previously been fixed in 6e2b75740b. How embarrassing.

In that case, the optimistic spinning code can get us into a situation where instead of going to sleep, A will spin waiting for B who is spinning waiting for A, and the only way out of that loop is the need_resched() test in mutex_spin_on_owner(). This patch fixes it by completely disabling spinning if we own the BKL. This adds one more detail to the extensive list of reasons why it's a bad idea for kernel code to be holding the BKL.

This is to make sure userspace is not getting anything it should not be when reading the pages, because the excess data was never initialized to zero before writing (for perfomance reasons). But the splice code has no business in doing this work, it should be done by the ring buffer. With the latest changes for recording lost events, the splice code gets it wrong anyway. Move the zeroing out of excess bytes into the ring buffer code. Signed-off-by: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org>

Since the 'commit' includes the padding at the end of a page a "real_end" variable was used to keep track of the end not including the padding. If events were lost, the reader can place the count of events in the padded area if there is enough room. The bug this patch fixes is that when we fill the page we do not reset the real_end variable, and if the writer had wrapped a few times, the real_end would be incorrect. This patch simply resets the real_end if the page was filled. Signed-off-by: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org>

Linus noticed that jiffies is volatile so it is reloaded twice, which generates bad code. But its worse. This can defeat the time_after() check if jiffies are incremented between time_after() and the slack calculation. Fix it by reading jiffies into a local variable, which prevents the compiler from loading it twice. While at it make the > -1 check into >= 0 which is easier to read.

The problem was that perf_fetch_caller_regs() did local_save_flags() into regs->flags, and I re-used that to remove another local_save_flags(), forgetting !x86 doesn't have regs->flags. Do the reverse, remove the local_save_flags() from perf_fetch_caller_regs() and let the ftrace site do the local_save_flags() instead.

When we put that reference, we check if we are the outer most writer and if not, we simply return and defer the head update to the outer most writer. The problem here is that preemption is only reenabled by the outer most, that produces preemption count imbalance for every nested writer that exit. So just don't forget to always re-enable preemption when we put the buffer reference, whoever we are. Fixes lots of sleeping in atomic warnings, visible with lock events recording.

We need to consider three different sides that access the hlist: - the hlist allocation/release side. This side happens when an events is created or released, accesses to the hlist are serialized under the cpuctx mutex. - the events insertion/removal in the hlist. This side is always serialized against the above one. The hlist is always present during such operations. This side happens when a software event is scheduled in/out. The serialization that ensures the software event is really attached to the context is made under the ctx->lock. - events triggering. This is the read side, it can happen concurrently with any update side. This patch deals with them one by one and anticipates with the separate rcu mem space patches in preparation. This patch fixes various annoying rcu warnings. Reported-by: Paul E.

The modification of both the enable and filter fields are done under the event_mutex, so it is still safe to combine the two. Note: Although Mathieu gave his Acked-by, he would like it documented that the reads of flags are not protected by the mutex. The way the code works, these reads will not break anything, but will have a residual effect. Since this behavior is the same even before this patch, describing this situation is left to another patch, as this patch does not change the behavior, but just brought it to Mathieu's attention. v2: Updated the event trace self test to for this change.

Since the output of the trace event is done by the class (with the exception of events defined by DEFINE_EVENT_PRINT), it makes sense to have the class define the print functions that all events in the class can use. This makes a bigger deal with the syscall events since all syscall events use the same class.

The type of initialization needed is usually classed to the kind of event it is. Two events with the same class will always have the same initialization function, so it makes sense to move this to the class structure. Perhaps even making a special system structure would work since the initialization is the same for all events within a system. But since there's no system structure (yet), this will just move it to the class. text data bss dec hex filename 4913961 1088356 861512 6863829 68bbd5 vmlinux.orig 4900375 1053380 861512 6815267 67fe23 vmlinux.fields 4900382 1048964 861512 6810858 67ecea vmlinux.init The text grew very slightly, but this is a constant growth that happened with the changing of the C files that call the init code.

Since the fields of the event are defined by the class they belong to, it makes sense to have the class hold the information instead of the individual events. The events of the same class would just hold duplicate information. After this change the size of the kernel dropped another 3K: text data bss dec hex filename 4913961 1088356 861512 6863829 68bbd5 vmlinux.orig 4900252 1057412 861512 6819176 680d68 vmlinux.regs 4900375 1053380 861512 6815267 67fe23 vmlinux.fields Although the text increased, this was mainly due to the C files having to adapt to the change. This is a constant increase, where new tracepoints will not increase the Text. But the big drop is in the data size (as well as needed allocations to hold the fields). This will give even more savings as more tracepoints are created. Note, if just TRACE_EVENT()s are used and not DECLARE_EVENT_CLASS() with several DEFINE_EVENT()s, then the savings will be lost. But we are pushing developers to consolidate events with DEFINE_EVENT() so this should not be an issue. The kprobes define a unique class to every new event, but are dynamic so it should not be a issue. The syscalls however have a single class but the fields for the individual events are different. The syscalls use a metadata to define the fields. I moved the fields list from the event to the metadata and added a "get_fields()" function to the class. This function is used to find the fields. For normal events and kprobes, get_fields() just returns a pointer to the fields list_head in the class. For syscall events, it returns the fields list_head in the metadata for the event. v2: Fixed the syscall fields. The syscall metadata needs a list of fields for both enter and exit.

The registering of a event is now down directly in the trace_events.c file. The tracepoint_probe_register() is now called directly. The prototypes are no longer type checked, but this should not be an issue since the tracepoints are created automatically by the macros. If a prototype is incorrect in the TRACE_EVENT() macro, then other macros will catch it. The trace_event_class structure now holds the probes to be called by the callbacks. This removes needing to have each event have a separate pointer for the probe. To handle kprobes and syscalls, since they register probes in a different manner, a "reg" field is added to the ftrace_event_class structure. If the "reg" field is assigned, then it will be called for enabling and disabling of the probe for either ftrace or perf. To let the reg function know what is happening, a new enum (trace_reg) is created that has the type of control that is needed. With this new rework, the 82 kernel events and 618 syscall events has their footprint dramatically lowered: text data bss dec hex filename 4913961 1088356 861512 6863829 68bbd5 vmlinux.orig 4914025 1088868 861512 6864405 68be15 vmlinux.class 4918492 1084612 861512 6864616 68bee8 vmlinux.tracepoint 4900252 1057412 861512 6819176 680d68 vmlinux.regs The size went from 6863829 to 6819176, that's a total of 44K in savings. With tracepoints being continuously added, this is critical that the footprint becomes minimal. v5: Added #ifdef CONFIG_PERF_EVENTS around a reference to perf specific structure in trace_events.c. v4: Fixed trace self tests to check probe because regfunc no longer exists. v3: Updated to handle void *data in beginning of probe parameters. Also added the tracepoint: check_trace_callback_type_##call(). v2: Changed the callback probes to pass void * and typecast the value within the function.

The created functions from DECLARE_TRACE() now need a mandatory data parameter. For example: DECLARE_TRACE(mytracepoint, int value, value) Will create the register function: int register_trace_mytracepoint((void(*)(void *data, int value))probe, void *data); As the first argument, all callbacks (probes) must take a (void *data) parameter. So a callback for the above tracepoint will look like: void myprobe(void *data, int value) { } The callback may choose to ignore the data parameter. This change allows callbacks to register a private data pointer along with the function probe. void mycallback(void *data, int value); register_trace_mytracepoint(mycallback, mydata); Then the mycallback() will receive the "mydata" as the first parameter before the args. A more detailed example: DECLARE_TRACE(mytracepoint, TP_PROTO(int status), TP_ARGS(status)); /* In the C file */ DEFINE_TRACE(mytracepoint, TP_PROTO(int status), TP_ARGS(status)); [...] trace_mytracepoint(status); /* In a file registering this tracepoint */ int my_callback(void *data, int status) { struct my_struct my_data = data; [...] } [...] my_data = kmalloc(sizeof(*my_data), GFP_KERNEL); init_my_data(my_data); register_trace_mytracepoint(my_callback, my_data); The same callback can also be registered to the same tracepoint as long as the data registered is different. Note, the data must also be used to unregister the callback: unregister_trace_mytracepoint(my_callback, my_data); Because of the data parameter, tracepoints declared this way can not have no args. That is: DECLARE_TRACE(mytracepoint, TP_PROTO(void), TP_ARGS()); will cause an error. If no arguments are needed, a new macro can be used instead: DECLARE_TRACE_NOARGS(mytracepoint); Since there are no arguments, the proto and args fields are left out. This is part of a series to make the tracepoint footprint smaller: text data bss dec hex filename 4913961 1088356 861512 6863829 68bbd5 vmlinux.orig 4914025 1088868 861512 6864405 68be15 vmlinux.class 4918492 1084612 861512 6864616 68bee8 vmlinux.tracepoint Again, this patch also increases the size of the kernel, but lays the ground work for decreasing it. v5: Fixed net/core/drop_monitor.c to handle these updates. v4: Moved the DECLARE_TRACE() DECLARE_TRACE_NOARGS out of the #ifdef CONFIG_TRACE_POINTS, since the two are the same in both cases. The __DECLARE_TRACE() is what changes. Thanks to Frederic Weisbecker for pointing this out. v3: Made all register_* functions require data to be passed and all callbacks to take a void * parameter as its first argument. This makes the calling functions comply with C standards. Also added more comments to the modifications of DECLARE_TRACE(). v2: Made the DECLARE_TRACE() have the ability to pass arguments and added a new DECLARE_TRACE_NOARGS() for tracepoints that do not need any arguments.

This class struct will be made to hold information to modify the events. Currently the class struct only holds the events system name. This patch slightly increases the size, but this change lays the ground work of other changes to make the footprint of tracepoints smaller.
