tracing/filters: support for operator reserved characters in strings

When we set a filter for an event, such as:

echo "name == my_lock_name" > \
/debug/tracing/events/lockdep/lock_acquired/filter

then the following order of token type is parsed:

- space
- operator
- parentheses
- operand

Because the operators and parentheses have a higher precedence
than the operand characters, which is normal, then we can't
use any string containing such special characters:

()=<>!&|

To get this support and also avoid ambiguous intepretation from
the parser or the human, we can do it using double quotes so that
we keep the usual languages habits.

Then after this patch you can still declare string condition like
before:

echo name == myname

But if you want to compare against a string containing an operator
character, you can use double quotes:

echo 'name == "&myname"'

Don't forget to include the whole expression into single quotes or
the double ones will be eaten by echo.

tracing: reset ring buffer when removing modules with events

Li Zefan found that there's a race using the event ids of events and
modules. When a module is loaded, an event id is incremented. We only
have 16 bits for event ids (65536) and there is a possible (but highly
unlikely) race that we could load and unload a module that registers
events so many times that the event id counter overflows.

When it overflows, it then restarts and goes looking for available
ids. An id is available if it was added by a module and released.

The race is if you have one module add an id, and then is removed.
Another module loaded can use that same event id. But if the old module
still had events in the ring buffer, the new module's call back would
get bogus data.  At best (and most likely) the output would just be
garbage. But if the module for some reason used pointers (not recommended)
then this could potentially crash.

The safest thing to do is just reset the ring buffer if a module that
registered events is removed.

This is done with preemption and interrupts enabled. But if the kernel

This patch solves the issues by calling "cond_resched" when the system
is not compiled with CONFIG_PREEMPT. It also keeps track of the time
spent to call cond_resched such that it does not go against the
time calculations. That is, if the task schedules away, the time scheduled
out is removed from the test data. Note, this only works for non PREEMPT

10 years agoring-buffer: move big if statement down

ring-buffer: move big if statement down

In the hot path of the ring buffer "__rb_reserve_next" there's a big
if statement that does not even return back to the work flow.

code;

if (cross to next page) {

[ lots of code ]

return;
}

more code;

The condition is even the unlikely path, although we do not denote it
with an unlikely because gcc is fine with it. The condition is true when
the write crosses a page boundary, and we need to start at a new page.

Having this if statement makes it hard to read, but calling another
function to do the work is also not appropriate, because we are using a lot
of variables that were set before the if statement, and we do not want to
send them as parameters.

This patch changes it to a goto:

code;

if (cross to next page)
goto next_page;

more code;

return;

next_page:

[ lots of code]

This makes the code easier to understand, and a bit more obvious.

The output from gcc is practically identical. For some reason, gcc decided
to use different registers when I switched it to a goto. But other than that,
the logic is the same.

ring-buffer: convert cpu buffer entries to local_t

The entries counter in cpu buffer is not atomic. It can be updated by
other interrupts or from another CPU (readers).

But making entries into "atomic_t" causes an atomic operation that can
hurt performance. Instead we convert it to a local_t that will increment
a counter with a local CPU atomic operation (if the arch supports it).

Instead of fighting with readers and overwrites that decrement the counter,
I added a "read" counter. Every time a reader reads an entry it is
incremented.

We already have a overrun counter and with that, the entries counter and
the read counter, we can calculate the total number of entries in the
buffer with:

  (entries - overrun) - read

As long as the total number of entries in the ring buffer is less than
the word size, this will work. But since the entries counter was previously
a long, this is no different than what we had before.

Thanks to Andrew Morton for pointing out in the first version that
atomic_t does not replace unsigned long. I switched to atomic_long_t
even though it is signed. A negative count is most likely a bug.

i2c-algo-pca: Let PCA9564 recover from unacked data byte (state 0x30)

Currently, the i2c-algo-pca driver does nothing if the chip enters state
0x30 (Data byte in I2CDAT has been transmitted; NOT ACK has been
received).  Thus, the i2c bus connected to the controller gets stuck
afterwards.

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
as suggested by Wolfram Sang.

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.

x86: show number of core_siblings instead of thread_siblings in /proc/cpuinfo

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, "cpu cores\t: %d\n", c->booted_cores);
|                  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.

10 years agoMove dtc and libfdt sources from arch/powerpc/boot to scripts/dtc
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
locations.

kernel-doc: restrict syntax for private: and public:

scripts/kernel-doc can (incorrectly) delete struct members that are
surrounded by /* ...  */ <struct members> /* ...  */ if there is a /*
private: */ comment in there somewhere also.

Fix that by making the "/* private:" only allow whitespace between /* and
"private:", not anything/everything in the world.

This fixes some erroneous kernel-doc warnings that popped up while
processing include/linux/usb/composite.h.

10 years agomm: fix Committed_AS underflow on large NR_CPUS environment

mm: fix Committed_AS underflow on large NR_CPUS environment

The Committed_AS field can underflow in certain situations:

Because NR_CPUS can be greater than 1000 and meminfo_proc_show() does
not check for underflow.

But NR_CPUS proportional isn't good calculation.  In general,
possibility of lock contention is proportional to the number of online
cpus, not theorical maximum cpus (NR_CPUS).

The current kernel has generic percpu-counter stuff.  using it is right
way.  it makes code simplify and percpu_counter_read_positive() don't
make underflow issue.
