xen/i386: follow-up to "replace order-based range checking of M2P table by linear one"

The numbers obtained from the hypervisor really can't ever lead to an
overflow here, only the original calculation going through the order
of the range could have. This avoids the (as Jeremy points outs)
somewhat ugly NULL-based calculation here.

10 years agoxen/e820: if there is no dom0_mem=, don't tweak extra_pages.

xen/e820: if there is no dom0_mem=, don't tweak extra_pages.

The patch "xen: use maximum reservation to limit amount of usable RAM"
(d312ae878b6aed3912e1acaaf5d0b2a9d08a4f11) breaks machines that
do not use 'dom0_mem=' argument with:

reserve RAM buffer: 000000133f2e2000 - 000000133fffffff
(XEN) mm.c:4976:d0 Global bit is set to kernel page fffff8117e
(XEN) domain_crash_sync called from entry.S
(XEN) Domain 0 (vcpu#0) crashed on cpu#0:
...

The reason being that the last E820 entry is created using the
'extra_pages' (which is based on how many pages have been freed).
The mentioned git commit sets the initial value of 'extra_pages'
using a hypercall which returns the number of pages (if dom0_mem
has been used) or -1 otherwise. If the later we return with
MAX_DOMAIN_PAGES as basis for calculation:

    return min(max_pages, MAX_DOMAIN_PAGES);

and use it:

     extra_limit = xen_get_max_pages();
     if (extra_limit >= max_pfn)
             extra_pages = extra_limit - max_pfn;
     else
             extra_pages = 0;

which means we end up with extra_pages = 128GB in PFNs (33554432)
- 8GB in PFNs (2097152, on this specific box, can be larger or smaller),
and then we add that value to the E820 making it:

  Xen: 00000000ff000000 - 0000000100000000 (reserved)
  Xen: 0000000100000000 - 000000133f2e2000 (usable)

which is clearly wrong. It should look as so:

  Xen: 00000000ff000000 - 0000000100000000 (reserved)
  Xen: 0000000100000000 - 000000027fbda000 (usable)

Naturally this problem does not present itself if dom0_mem=max:X
is used.

xen: use maximum reservation to limit amount of usable RAM

xen/x86: replace order-based range checking of M2P table by linear one

The order-based approach is not only less efficient (requiring a shift
and a compare, typical generated code looking like this

mov eax, [machine_to_phys_order]
mov ecx, eax
shr ebx, cl
test ebx, ebx
jnz ...

whereas a direct check requires just a compare, like in

cmp ebx, [machine_to_phys_nr]
jae ...

), but also slightly dangerous in the 32-on-64 case - the element
address calculation can wrap if the next power of two boundary is
sufficiently far away from the actual upper limit of the table, and
hence can result in user space addresses being accessed (with it being
unknown what may actually be mapped there).

Additionally, the elimination of the mistaken use of fls() here (should
have been __fls()) fixes a latent issue on x86-64 that would trigger
if the code was run on a system with memory extending beyond the 44-bit

irq: add irq_domain translation infrastructure

This patch adds irq_domain infrastructure for translating from
hardware irq numbers to linux irqs.  This is particularly important
for architectures adding device tree support because the current
implementation (excluding PowerPC and SPARC) cannot handle
translation for more than a single interrupt controller.  irq_domain
supports device tree translation for any number of interrupt
controllers.

This patch converts x86, Microblaze, ARM and MIPS to use irq_domain
for device tree irq translation.  x86 is untested beyond compiling it,
irq_domain is enabled for MIPS and Microblaze, but the old behaviour is
preserved until the core code is modified to actually register an
irq_domain yet.  On ARM it works and is required for much of the new
ARM device tree board support.

PowerPC has /not/ been converted to use this new infrastructure.  It
is still missing some features before it can replace the virq
infrastructure already in powerpc (see documentation on
irq_domain_map/unmap for details).  Followup patches will add the
missing pieces and migrate PowerPC to use irq_domain.

SPARC has its own method of managing interrupts from the device tree
and is unaffected by this change.

device or the currently active device.

the problem and tested that this fix resolves it.

V2: A few did not like the the current code or my changes, so I
refactored bonding_store_primary and bonding_store_active_slave to be a
bit cleaner, dropped the use of strnicmp since we did not really need
the comparison to be case insensitive, and formatted the input string
from sysfs so a comparison to IFNAMSIZ could be used.

I also discovered an error in bonding_store_active_slave that would
modify bond->primary_slave rather than bond->curr_active_slave before

as Niagara-T2/T2+.  Use cache initializing stores for memset, and use
perfetch, FPU block loads, cache initializing stores, and block stores

report, plus enable T3's new "sample" mode.

For now I haven't added any new ELF hwcap flags.  We probably need
to add a couple, for example:

T2 and T3 both support the population count instruction in hardware.

T3 supports VIS3 instructions, including support (finally) for
partitioned shift.  One can also now move directly between float
and integer registers.

T3 supports instructions meant to help with Galois Field and other HPC
calculations, such as XOR multiply.  Also there are "OP and negate"
instructions, for example "fnmul" which is multiply-and-negate.

T3 recognizes the transactional memory opcodes, however since
transactional memory isn't supported: 1) 'commit' behaves as a NOP and
2) 'chkpt' always branches 3) 'rdcps' returns all zeros and 4) 'wrcps'
behaves as a NOP.

Currently when we get a read error during recovery, we simply abort
the recovery.

Instead, repeat the read in page-sized blocks.
On successful reads, write to the target.
On read errors, record a bad block on the destination,
and only if that fails do we abort the recovery.

As we now retry reads we need to know where we read from.  This was in
bi_sector but that can be changed during a read attempt.

won't try to fix even though the bad blocks might not overlap.  That
should be considered later.

of data, which is not very common with RAID10.  But it should still

    the chosen slot, but also how many good blocks are available

    different devices as different bad blocks on different devices
    could mean that a single large read cannot be served by any one
    device, but can still be served by the array.

1/ when a read request fits within a chunk on a single

   In this case, if there is any bad block in the range of
   the read, we simply fail the cache-bypass read and
   perform the read though the stripe cache.

2/ when reading into the stripe cache.  In this case we
   mark as failed any device which has a bad block in that
   strip (1 page wide).
   Note that we will both avoid reading and avoid writing.
   This is correct (as we will never read from the block, there
   is no point writing), but not optimal (as writing could 'fix'
   the error) - that will be addressed later.

If we have not seen any write errors on the device yet, we treat a bad
block like a recent read error.  This will encourage an attempt to fix
the read error which will either generate a write error, or will
ensure good data is stored there.  We don't yet forget the bad block
in that case.  That comes later.

Now that we honour bad blocks when reading we can allow devices with
bad blocks into the array.
