* include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking ↵Tejun Heo2010-03-301-1/+0
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | implicit slab.h inclusion from percpu.h percpu.h is included by sched.h and module.h and thus ends up being included when building most .c files. percpu.h includes slab.h which in turn includes gfp.h making everything defined by the two files universally available and complicating inclusion dependencies. percpu.h -> slab.h dependency is about to be removed. Prepare for this change by updating users of gfp and slab facilities include those headers directly instead of assuming availability. As this conversion needs to touch large number of source files, the following script is used as the basis of conversion. http://userweb.kernel.org/~tj/misc/slabh-sweep.py The script does the followings. * Scan files for gfp and slab usages and update includes such that only the necessary includes are there. ie. if only gfp is used, gfp.h, if slab is used, slab.h. * When the script inserts a new include, it looks at the include blocks and try to put the new include such that its order conforms to its surrounding. It's put in the include block which contains core kernel includes, in the same order that the rest are ordered - alphabetical, Christmas tree, rev-Xmas-tree or at the end if there doesn't seem to be any matching order. * If the script can't find a place to put a new include (mostly because the file doesn't have fitting include block), it prints out an error message indicating which .h file needs to be added to the file. The conversion was done in the following steps. 1. The initial automatic conversion of all .c files updated slightly over 4000 files, deleting around 700 includes and adding ~480 gfp.h and ~3000 slab.h inclusions. The script emitted errors for ~400 files. 2. Each error was manually checked. Some didn't need the inclusion, some needed manual addition while adding it to implementation .h or embedding .c file was more appropriate for others. This step added inclusions to around 150 files. 3. The script was run again and the output was compared to the edits from #2 to make sure no file was left behind. 4. Several build tests were done and a couple of problems were fixed. e.g. lib/decompress_*.c used malloc/free() wrappers around slab APIs requiring slab.h to be added manually. 5. The script was run on all .h files but without automatically editing them as sprinkling gfp.h and slab.h inclusions around .h files could easily lead to inclusion dependency hell. Most gfp.h inclusion directives were ignored as stuff from gfp.h was usually wildly available and often used in preprocessor macros. Each slab.h inclusion directive was examined and added manually as necessary. 6. percpu.h was updated not to include slab.h. 7. Build test were done on the following configurations and failures were fixed. CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL was turned off for all tests (as my distributed build env didn't work with gcov compiles) and a few more options had to be turned off depending on archs to make things build (like ipr on powerpc/64 which failed due to missing writeq). * x86 and x86_64 UP and SMP allmodconfig and a custom test config. * powerpc and powerpc64 SMP allmodconfig * sparc and sparc64 SMP allmodconfig * ia64 SMP allmodconfig * s390 SMP allmodconfig * alpha SMP allmodconfig * um on x86_64 SMP allmodconfig 8. percpu.h modifications were reverted so that it could be applied as a separate patch and serve as bisection point. Given the fact that I had only a couple of failures from tests on step 6, I'm fairly confident about the coverage of this conversion patch. If there is a breakage, it's likely to be something in one of the arch headers which should be easily discoverable easily on most builds of the specific arch.

* mm: change anon_vma linking to fix multi-process server scalability issueRik van Riel2010-03-061-2/+5
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | The old anon_vma code can lead to scalability issues with heavily forking workloads. Specifically, each anon_vma will be shared between the parent process and all its child processes. In a workload with 1000 child processes and a VMA with 1000 anonymous pages per process that get COWed, this leads to a system with a million anonymous pages in the same anon_vma, each of which is mapped in just one of the 1000 processes. However, the current rmap code needs to walk them all, leading to O(N) scanning complexity for each page. This can result in systems where one CPU is walking the page tables of 1000 processes in page_referenced_one, while all other CPUs are stuck on the anon_vma lock. This leads to catastrophic failure for a benchmark like AIM7, where the total number of processes can reach in the tens of thousands. Real workloads are still a factor 10 less process intensive than AIM7, but they are catching up. This patch changes the way anon_vmas and VMAs are linked, which allows us to associate multiple anon_vmas with a VMA. At fork time, each child process gets its own anon_vmas, in which its COWed pages will be instantiated. The parents' anon_vma is also linked to the VMA, because non-COWed pages could be present in any of the children. This reduces rmap scanning complexity to O(1) for the pages of the 1000 child processes, with O(N) complexity for at most 1/N pages in the system. This reduces the average scanning cost in heavily forking workloads from O(N) to 2. The only real complexity in this patch stems from the fact that linking a VMA to anon_vmas now involves memory allocations. This means vma_adjust can fail, if it needs to attach a VMA to anon_vma structures. This in turn means error handling needs to be added to the calling functions. A second source of complexity is that, because there can be multiple anon_vmas, the anon_vma linking in vma_adjust can no longer be done under "the" anon_vma lock. To prevent the rmap code from walking up an incomplete VMA, this patch introduces the VM_LOCK_RMAP VMA flag. This bit flag uses the same slot as the NOMMU VM_MAPPED_COPY, with an ifdef in mm.h to make sure it is impossible to compile a kernel that needs both symbolic values for the same bitflag. Some test results: Without the anon_vma changes, when AIM7 hits around 9.7k users (on a test box with 16GB RAM and not quite enough IO), the system ends up running >99% in system time, with every CPU on the same anon_vma lock in the pageout code. With these changes, AIM7 hits the cross-over point around 29.7k users. This happens with ~99% IO wait time, there never seems to be any spike in system time. The anon_vma lock contention appears to be resolved.

* ksm: prevent mremap move poisoningHugh Dickins2009-09-221-0/+12
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | KSM's scan allows for user pages to be COWed or unmapped at any time, without requiring any notification. But its stable tree does assume that when it finds a KSM page where it placed a KSM page, then it is the same KSM page that it placed there. mremap move could break that assumption: if an area containing a KSM page was unmapped, then an area containing a different KSM page was moved with mremap into the place of the original, before KSM's scan came around to notice. That could then poison a node of the stable tree, so that memcmps would "lie" and upset the ordering of the tree. Probably noone will ever need mremap move on a VM_MERGEABLE area; except that prohibiting it would make trouble for schemes in which we try making everything VM_MERGEABLE e.g. for testing: an mremap which normally works would then fail mysteriously. There's no need to go to any trouble, such as re-sorting KSM's list of rmap_items to match the new layout: simply unmerge the area to COW all its KSM pages before moving, but leave VM_MERGEABLE on so that they're remerged later.

* mmu-notifiers: coreAndrea Arcangeli2008-07-281-0/+6
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | With KVM/GFP/XPMEM there isn't just the primary CPU MMU pointing to pages. There are secondary MMUs (with secondary sptes and secondary tlbs) too. sptes in the kvm case are shadow pagetables, but when I say spte in mmu-notifier context, I mean "secondary pte". In GRU case there's no actual secondary pte and there's only a secondary tlb because the GRU secondary MMU has no knowledge about sptes and every secondary tlb miss event in the MMU always generates a page fault that has to be resolved by the CPU (this is not the case of KVM where the a secondary tlb miss will walk sptes in hardware and it will refill the secondary tlb transparently to software if the corresponding spte is present). The same way zap_page_range has to invalidate the pte before freeing the page, the spte (and secondary tlb) must also be invalidated before any page is freed and reused. Currently we take a page_count pin on every page mapped by sptes, but that means the pages can't be swapped whenever they're mapped by any spte because they're part of the guest working set. Furthermore a spte unmap event can immediately lead to a page to be freed when the pin is released (so requiring the same complex and relatively slow tlb_gather smp safe logic we have in zap_page_range and that can be avoided completely if the spte unmap event doesn't require an unpin of the page previously mapped in the secondary MMU). The mmu notifiers allow kvm/GRU/XPMEM to attach to the tsk->mm and know when the VM is swapping or freeing or doing anything on the primary MMU so that the secondary MMU code can drop sptes before the pages are freed, avoiding all page pinning and allowing 100% reliable swapping of guest physical address space. Furthermore it avoids the code that teardown the mappings of the secondary MMU, to implement a logic like tlb_gather in zap_page_range that would require many IPI to flush other cpu tlbs, for each fixed number of spte unmapped. To make an example: if what happens on the primary MMU is a protection downgrade (from writeable to wrprotect) the secondary MMU mappings will be invalidated, and the next secondary-mmu-page-fault will call get_user_pages and trigger a do_wp_page through get_user_pages if it called get_user_pages with write=1, and it'll re-establishing an updated spte or secondary-tlb-mapping on the copied page. Or it will setup a readonly spte or readonly tlb mapping if it's a guest-read, if it calls get_user_pages with write=0. This is just an example. This allows to map any page pointed by any pte (and in turn visible in the primary CPU MMU), into a secondary MMU (be it a pure tlb like GRU, or an full MMU with both sptes and secondary-tlb like the shadow-pagetable layer with kvm), or a remote DMA in software like XPMEM (hence needing of schedule in XPMEM code to send the invalidate to the remote node, while no need to schedule in kvm/gru as it's an immediate event like invalidating primary-mmu pte). At least for KVM without this patch it's impossible to swap guests reliably. And having this feature and removing the page pin allows several other optimizations that simplify life considerably. Dependencies: 1) mm_take_all_locks() to register the mmu notifier when the whole VM isn't doing anything with "mm". This allows mmu notifier users to keep track if the VM is in the middle of the invalidate_range_begin/end critical section with an atomic counter incraese in range_begin and decreased in range_end. No secondary MMU page fault is allowed to map any spte or secondary tlb reference, while the VM is in the middle of range_begin/end as any page returned by get_user_pages in that critical section could later immediately be freed without any further ->invalidate_page notification (invalidate_range_begin/end works on ranges and ->invalidate_page isn't called immediately before freeing the page). To stop all page freeing and pagetable overwrites the mmap_sem must be taken in write mode and all other anon_vma/i_mmap locks must be taken too. 2) It'd be a waste to add branches in the VM if nobody could possibly run KVM/GRU/XPMEM on the kernel, so mmu notifiers will only enabled if CONFIG_KVM=m/y. In the current kernel kvm won't yet take advantage of mmu notifiers, but this already allows to compile a KVM external module against a kernel with mmu notifiers enabled and from the next pull from kvm.git we'll start using them. And GRU/XPMEM will also be able to continue the development by enabling KVM=m in their config, until they submit all GRU/XPMEM GPLv2 code to the mainline kernel. Then they can also enable MMU_NOTIFIERS in the same way KVM does it (even if KVM=n). This guarantees nobody selects MMU_NOTIFIER=y if KVM and GRU and XPMEM are all =n. The mmu_notifier_register call can fail because mm_take_all_locks may be interrupted by a signal and return -EINTR. Because mmu_notifier_reigster is used when a driver startup, a failure can be gracefully handled. Here an example of the change applied to kvm to register the mmu notifiers. Usually when a driver startups other allocations are required anyway and -ENOMEM failure paths exists already. struct kvm *kvm_arch_create_vm(void) { struct kvm *kvm = kzalloc(sizeof(struct kvm), GFP_KERNEL); + int err; if (!kvm) return ERR_PTR(-ENOMEM); INIT_LIST_HEAD(&kvm->arch.active_mmu_pages); + kvm->arch.mmu_notifier.ops = &kvm_mmu_notifier_ops; + err = mmu_notifier_register(&kvm->arch.mmu_notifier, current->mm); + if (err) { + kfree(kvm); + return ERR_PTR(err); + } + return kvm; } mmu_notifier_unregister returns void and it's reliable. The patch also adds a few needed but missing includes that would prevent kernel to compile after these changes on non-x86 archs (x86 didn't need them by luck).

* [PATCH] paravirt: lazy mmu mode hooks.patchZachary Amsden2006-10-011-0/+2
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Implement lazy MMU update hooks which are SMP safe for both direct and shadow page tables. The idea is that PTE updates and page invalidations while in lazy mode can be batched into a single hypercall. We use this in VMI for shadow page table synchronization, and it is a win. It also can be used by PPC and for direct page tables on Xen. For SMP, the enter / leave must happen under protection of the page table locks for page tables which are being modified. This is because otherwise, you end up with stale state in the batched hypercall, which other CPUs can race ahead of. Doing this under the protection of the locks guarantees the synchronization is correct, and also means that spurious faults which are generated during this window by remote CPUs are properly handled, as the page fault handler must re-check the PTE under protection of the same lock.

* [PATCH] mm: split page table lockHugh Dickins2005-10-291-1/+10
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Christoph Lameter demonstrated very poor scalability on the SGI 512-way, with a many-threaded application which concurrently initializes different parts of a large anonymous area. This patch corrects that, by using a separate spinlock per page table page, to guard the page table entries in that page, instead of using the mm's single page_table_lock. (But even then, page_table_lock is still used to guard page table allocation, and anon_vma allocation.) In this implementation, the spinlock is tucked inside the struct page of the page table page: with a BUILD_BUG_ON in case it overflows - which it would in the case of 32-bit PA-RISC with spinlock debugging enabled. Splitting the lock is not quite for free: another cacheline access. Ideally, I suppose we would use split ptlock only for multi-threaded processes on multi-cpu machines; but deciding that dynamically would have its own costs. So for now enable it by config, at some number of cpus - since the Kconfig language doesn't support inequalities, let preprocessor compare that with NR_CPUS. But I don't think it's worth being user-configurable: for good testing of both split and unsplit configs, split now at 4 cpus, and perhaps change that to 8 later. There is a benefit even for singly threaded processes: kswapd can be attacking one part of the mm while another part is busy faulting.

* [PATCH] mm: ptd_alloc take ptlockHugh Dickins2005-10-291-18/+9
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Second step in pushing down the page_table_lock. Remove the temporary bridging hack from __pud_alloc, __pmd_alloc, __pte_alloc: expect callers not to hold page_table_lock, whether it's on init_mm or a user mm; take page_table_lock internally to check if a racing task already allocated. Convert their callers from common code. But avoid coming back to change them again later: instead of moving the spin_lock(&mm->page_table_lock) down, switch over to new macros pte_alloc_map_lock and pte_unmap_unlock, which encapsulate the mapping+locking and unlocking+unmapping together, and in the end may use alternatives to the mm page_table_lock itself. These callers all hold mmap_sem (some exclusively, some not), so at no level can a page table be whipped away from beneath them; and pte_alloc uses the "atomic" pmd_present to test whether it needs to allocate. It appears that on all arches we can safely descend without page_table_lock.

* [PATCH] mm: ptd_alloc inline and outHugh Dickins2005-10-291-6/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | It seems odd to me that, whereas pud_alloc and pmd_alloc test inline, only calling out-of-line __pud_alloc __pmd_alloc if allocation needed, pte_alloc_map and pte_alloc_kernel are entirely out-of-line. Though it does add a little to kernel size, change them to macros testing inline, calling __pte_alloc or __pte_alloc_kernel to allocate out-of-line. Mark none of them as fastcalls, leave that to CONFIG_REGPARM or not. It also seems more natural for the out-of-line functions to leave the offset calculation and map to the inline, which has to do it anyway for the common case. At least mremap move wants __pte_alloc without _map. Macros rather than inline functions, certainly to avoid the header file issues which arise from CONFIG_HIGHPTE needing kmap_types.h, but also in case any architectures I haven't built would have other such problems.

* [PATCH] mm: update_hiwaters just in timeHugh Dickins2005-10-291-2/+10
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | update_mem_hiwater has attracted various criticisms, in particular from those concerned with mm scalability. Originally it was called whenever rss or total_vm got raised. Then many of those callsites were replaced by a timer tick call from account_system_time. Now Frank van Maarseveen reports that to be found inadequate. How about this? Works for Frank. Replace update_mem_hiwater, a poor combination of two unrelated ops, by macros update_hiwater_rss and update_hiwater_vm. Don't attempt to keep mm->hiwater_rss up to date at timer tick, nor every time we raise rss (usually by 1): those are hot paths. Do the opposite, update only when about to lower rss (usually by many), or just before final accounting in do_exit. Handle mm->hiwater_vm in the same way, though it's much less of an issue. Demand that whoever collects these hiwater statistics do the work of taking the maximum with rss or total_vm. And there has been no collector of these hiwater statistics in the tree. The new convention needs an example, so match Frank's usage by adding a VmPeak line above VmSize to /proc/<pid>/status, and also a VmHWM line above VmRSS (High-Water-Mark or High-Water-Memory). There was a particular anomaly during mremap move, that hiwater_vm might be captured too high. A fleeting such anomaly remains, but it's quickly corrected now, whereas before it would stick. What locking? None: if the app is racy then these statistics will be racy, it's not worth any overhead to make them exact. But whenever it suits, hiwater_vm is updated under exclusive mmap_sem, and hiwater_rss under page_table_lock (for now) or with preemption disabled (later on): without going to any trouble, minimize the time between reading current values and updating, to minimize those occasions when a racing thread bumps a count up and back down in between.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Speeding up mremap's moving of ptes has never been a priority, but the locking will get more complicated shortly, and is already too baroque. Scrap the current one-by-one moving, do an extent at a time: curtailed by end of src and dst pmds (have to use PMD_SIZE: the way pmd_addr_end gets elided doesn't match this usage), and by latency considerations. One nice property of the old method is lost: it never allocated a page table unless absolutely necessary, so you could free empty page tables by mremapping to and fro. Whereas this way, it allocates a dst table wherever there was a src table. I keep diving in to reinstate the old behaviour, then come out preferring not to clutter how it now is.

Patch below against 2.6.14-rc2-mm1, but the same bug is in 2.6.14-rc2's mm/mremap.c, and more dangerous there since it's affecting all arches: I think the safest course is to send Nick's patch and Yoichi's build fix and this fix (build tested) on to Linus - so only MIPS can be affected.

* [PATCH] mm: remap ZERO_PAGE mappingsNick Piggin2005-09-051-0/+4
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | filemap_xip's nopage routine maps the ZERO_PAGE into readonly mappings, if it has no data page to map there: then if the hole in the file is later filled, __xip_unmap uses an rmap technique to replace the ZERO_PAGEs mapped for that offset by the newly allocated file page, so that established mappings will see the newly written data. However, on MIPS (alone) there's not one but as many as eight ZERO_PAGEs, chosen for coloring by user virtual address; and if mremap has meanwhile been used to move a mapping containing a ZERO_PAGE, it will generally not match the ZERO_PAGE(address) __xip_unmap is looking for. To maintain XIP's established mappings correctly on MIPS, we need Nick's fix to mremap's move_one_page (originally presented as an optimization), to replace the ZERO_PAGE appropriate to the old address by the ZERO_PAGE appropriate to the new address. (But when I first saw this, I was thinking the ZERO_PAGEs themselves would get corrupted, very bad. Now I think it's the other way round, that the established mappings will fail to see the newly written data: incorrect, but not corrupting everything else. Whether filemap_xip's technique is generally safe, I'd hesitate to say in a hurry: it's interesting, but we've never tried to do that in tmpfs.)
