initramfs: clean up messages related to initramfs unpacking

With the removal of duplicate unpack_to_rootfs() (commit
df52092f3c97788592ef72501a43fb7ac6a3cfe0) the messages displayed do not
actually correspond to what the kernel is doing.  In addition, depending
if ramdisks are supported or not, the messages are not at all the same.

So keep the messages more in sync with what is really doing the kernel,
and only display a second message in case of failure.  This also ensure
that the printk message cannot be split by other printk's.

14 years agonommu: make the initial mmap allocation excess behaviour Kconfig configurable
David Howells [Wed, 6 May 2009 23:03:05 +0000 (16:03 -0700)]
nommu: make the initial mmap allocation excess behaviour Kconfig configurable

NOMMU mmap() has an option controlled by a sysctl variable that determines
whether the allocations made by do_mmap_private() should have the excess
space trimmed off and returned to the allocator.  Make the initial setting
of this variable a Kconfig configuration option.

The reason there can be excess space is that the allocator only allocates
in power-of-2 size chunks, but mmap()'s can be made in sizes that aren't a
power of 2.

There are two alternatives:

 (1) Keep the excess as dead space.  The dead space then remains unused for the
     lifetime of the mapping.  Mappings of shared objects such as libc,
     or busybox's text segment may retain their dead space forever.

 (2) Return the excess to the allocator.  This means that the dead space is
     limited to less than a page per mapping, but it means that for a transient
     process, there's more chance of fragmentation as the excess space may be
     reused fairly quickly.

During the boot process, a lot of transient processes are created, and
this can cause a lot of fragmentation as the pagecache and various slabs
grow greatly during this time.

By turning off the trimming of excess space during boot and disabling
batching of frees, Coldfire can manage to boot.

A better way of doing things might be to have /sbin/init turn this option
off.  By that point libc, and init - which are all long-duration
processes - have all been loaded and trimmed.

14 years agonommu: clamp zone_batchsize() to 0 under NOMMU conditions
David Howells [Wed, 6 May 2009 23:03:03 +0000 (16:03 -0700)]
nommu: clamp zone_batchsize() to 0 under NOMMU conditions

Clamp zone_batchsize() to 0 under NOMMU conditions to stop
free_hot_cold_page() from queueing and batching frees.

The problem is that under NOMMU conditions it is really important to be
able to allocate large contiguous chunks of memory, but when munmap() or
exit_mmap() releases big stretches of memory, return of these to the buddy
allocator can be deferred, and when it does finally happen, it can be in
small chunks.

Whilst the fragmentation this incurs isn't so much of a problem under MMU
conditions as userspace VM is glued together from individual pages with
the aid of the MMU, it is a real problem if there isn't an MMU.

By clamping the page freeing queue size to 0, pages are returned to the
allocator immediately, and the buddy detector is more likely to be able to
glue them together into large chunks immediately, and fragmentation is
less likely to occur.

By disabling batching of frees, and by turning off the trimming of excess
space during boot, Coldfire can manage to boot.

fbdev: fix fillrect for 24bpp modes

The software fillrect routines do not work properly when the number of
pixels per machine word is not an integer.  To see that, run the following
command on a fbdev console with a 24bpp video mode, using a
non-accelerated driver such as (u)vesafb:

  reset ; echo -e '\e[41mtest\e[K'

Instead of that, 'test' has a red background, but the rest of the line
(rendered using fillrect()) contains a distored colorful pattern.

This patch fixes the problem by correctly computing rotation shifts.  It

0x30 (Data byte in I2CDAT has been transmitted; NOT ACK has been
received).  Thus, the i2c bus connected to the controller gets stuck

I have seen this kind of error on a custom board in certain load
situations most probably caused by interference or noise.

A possible reaction is to let the controller generate a STOP condition.
This is documented in the PCA9564 data sheet (2006-09-01) and the same
is done for other NACK states as well.

Further, state 0x38 isn't handled completely, either. Try to do another
START in this case like the data sheet says. As this couldn't be tested,
I've added a comment to try to reset the chip if the START doesn't help

Marcel Holtmann [Sun, 3 May 2009 01:24:06 +0000 (18:24 -0700)]
Bluetooth: Fix issue with sysfs handling for connections

Due to a semantic changes in flush_workqueue() the current approach of
synchronizing the sysfs handling for connections doesn't work anymore. The
whole approach is actually fully broken and based on assumptions that are
no longer valid.

With the introduction of Simple Pairing support, the creation of low-level
ACL links got changed. This change invalidates the reason why in the past
two independent work queues have been used for adding/removing sysfs
devices. The adding of the actual sysfs device is now postponed until the
host controller successfully assigns an unique handle to that link. So
the real synchronization happens inside the controller and not the host.

The only left-over problem is that some internals of the sysfs device
handling are not initialized ahead of time. This leaves potential access
to invalid data and can cause various NULL pointer dereferences. To fix
this a new function makes sure that all sysfs details are initialized
when an connection attempt is made. The actual sysfs device is only
registered when the connection has been successfully established. To
avoid a race condition with the registration, the check if a device is
registered has been moved into the removal work.

As an extra protection two flush_work() calls are left in place to
make sure a previous add/del work has been completed first.

Commit 7ad728f98162cb1af06a85b2a5fc422dddd4fb78
(cpumask: x86: convert cpu_sibling_map/cpu_core_map to cpumask_var_t)
changed the output of /proc/cpuinfo for siblings:

Example on an AMD Phenom:

  physical id   : 0
  siblings : 1
  core id    : 3
  cpu cores  : 4

Before that commit it was:

  physical id : 0
  siblings : 4
  core id    : 3
  cpu cores  : 4

Instead of cpu_core_mask it now uses cpu_sibling_mask to count siblings.
This is due to the following hunk of above commit:

|  --- a/arch/x86/kernel/cpu/proc.c
|  +++ b/arch/x86/kernel/cpu/proc.c
|  @@ -14,7 +14,7 @@ static void show_cpuinfo_core(struct seq_file *m, struct cpuinf
|          if (c->x86_max_cores * smp_num_siblings > 1) {
|                  seq_printf(m, "physical id\t: %d\n", c->phys_proc_id);
|                  seq_printf(m, "siblings\t: %d\n",
|  -                          cpus_weight(per_cpu(cpu_core_map, cpu)));
|  +                          cpumask_weight(cpu_sibling_mask(cpu)));
|                  seq_printf(m, "core id\t\t: %d\n", c->cpu_core_id);

|                  seq_printf(m, "apicid\t\t: %d\n", c->apicid);

This was a mistake, because the impact line shows that this side-effect
was not anticipated:

   Impact: reduce per-cpu size for CONFIG_CPUMASK_OFFSTACK=y

So revert the respective hunk to restore the old behavior.

kbuild, modpost: fix unexpected non-allocatable warning with mips

mips emit the following debug sections:
.mdebug* and .pdr

They were included in the check for non-allocatable section
and caused modpost to warn.

Manuel Lauss suggested to fix this by adding the relevant
sections to the list of sections we do not check.

Jean reported that he saw one warning for each module like the one below:
WARNING: arch/x86/kernel/cpu/cpufreq/acpi-cpufreq.o (.comment.SUSE.OPTs): unexpected non-allocatable section.

The warning appeared with the improved version of the
check of the flags in the sections.

That check already ignored sections named ".comment" - but SUSE store
additional info in the comment section and has named it in a SUSE
specific way. Therefore modpost failed to ignore the section.

The fix is to extend the pattern so we ignore all sections
that start with the name ".comment.".

David Gibson [Thu, 30 Apr 2009 05:25:53 +0000 (15:25 +1000)]
Move dtc and libfdt sources from arch/powerpc/boot to scripts/dtc

The powerpc kernel always requires an Open Firmware like device tree
to supply device information.  On systems without OF, this comes from
a flattened device tree blob.  This blob is usually generated by dtc,
a tool which compiles a text description of the device tree into the
flattened format used by the kernel.  Sometimes, the bootwrapper makes
small changes to the pre-compiled device tree blob (e.g. filling in
the size of RAM).  To do this it uses the libfdt library.

Because these are only used on powerpc, the code for both these tools
is included under arch/powerpc/boot (these were imported and are
periodically updated from the upstream dtc tree).

However, the microblaze architecture, currently being prepared for
merging to mainline also uses dtc to produce device tree blobs.  A few
other archs have also mentioned some interest in using dtc.
Therefore, this patch moves dtc and libfdt from arch/powerpc into
scripts, where it can be used by any architecture.

The vast bulk of this patch is a literal move, the rest is adjusting
the various Makefiles to use dtc and libfdt correctly from their new

when binfmt_aout built as module.  That happens because aout binary

places new handler on the top of the binfmt list.  This might be generally

1. It doesn't call mem_cgroup_out_of_memory and doesn't update
   last_oom_jiffies, so pagefault_out_of_memory invokes global OOM.

2. Considering hierarchy, shrinking has to be done from the

mem_cgroup_try_charge_swapin() does all of these things properly, so we
use it and call cancel_charge_swapin when it succeeded.

14 years agomm: close page_mkwrite races
Nick Piggin [Thu, 30 Apr 2009 22:08:16 +0000 (15:08 -0700)]
mm: close page_mkwrite races

Change page_mkwrite to allow implementations to return with the page
locked, and also change it's callers (in page fault paths) to hold the
lock until the page is marked dirty.  This allows the filesystem to have
full control of page dirtying events coming from the VM.

Rather than simply hold the page locked over the page_mkwrite call, we
call page_mkwrite with the page unlocked and allow callers to return with
it locked, so filesystems can avoid LOR conditions with page lock.

The problem with the current scheme is this: a filesystem that wants to
associate some metadata with a page as long as the page is dirty, will
perform this manipulation in its ->page_mkwrite.  It currently then must
return with the page unlocked and may not hold any other locks (according
to existing page_mkwrite convention).

In this window, the VM could write out the page, clearing page-dirty.  The
filesystem has no good way to detect that a dirty pte is about to be
attached, so it will happily write out the page, at which point, the
filesystem may manipulate the metadata to reflect that the page is no
longer dirty.

It is not always possible to perform the required metadata manipulation in
->set_page_dirty, because that function cannot block or fail.  The
filesystem may need to allocate some data structure, for example.

And the VM cannot mark the pte dirty before page_mkwrite, because
page_mkwrite is allowed to fail, so we must not allow any window where the
page could be written to if page_mkwrite does fail.

This solution of holding the page locked over the 3 critical operations
(page_mkwrite, setting the pte dirty, and finally setting the page dirty)
closes out races nicely, preventing page cleaning for writeout being
initiated in that window.  This provides the filesystem with a strong
synchronisation against the VM here.

- Sage needs this race closed for ceph filesystem.
- Trond for NFS (
- I need it for fsblock.
- I suspect other filesystems may need it too (eg. btrfs).
- I have converted buffer.c to the new locking. Even simple block allocation
  under dirty pages might be susceptible to i_size changing under partial page
  at the end of file (we also have a buffer.c-side problem here, but it cannot
  be fixed properly without this patch).
- Other filesystems (eg. NFS, maybe btrfs) will need to change their
  page_mkwrite functions themselves.

[ This also moves page_mkwrite another step closer to fault, which should
  eventually allow page_mkwrite to be moved into ->fault, and thus avoiding a
  filesystem calldown and page lock/unlock cycle in __do_fault. ]
