2010-04-01gen_estimator: deadlock fixEric Dumazet1-1/+1
One of my test machine got a deadlock during "tc" sessions, adding/deleting classes & filters, using traffic estimators. After some analysis, I believe we have a potential use after free case in est_timer() : spin_lock(e->stats_lock); << HERE >> read_lock(&est_lock); if (e->bstats == NULL) << TEST >> goto skip; Test is done a bit late, because after estimator is killed, and before rcu grace period elapsed, we might already have freed/reuse memory where e->stats_locks points to (some qdisc->q.lock) A possible fix is to respect a rcu grace period at Qdisc dismantle time. On 64bit, sizeof(struct Qdisc) is exactly 192 bytes. Adding 16 bytes to it (for struct rcu_head) is a problem because it might change performance, given QDISC_ALIGNTO is 32 bytes. This is why I also change QDISC_ALIGNTO to 64 bytes, to satisfy most current alignment requirements. Signed-off-by: Eric Dumazet <eric.dumazet@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: David S.

2010-01-28sched: add head drop fifo queueHagen Paul Pfeifer1-0/+1
This adds an additional queuing strategy, called pfifo_head_drop, to remove the oldest skb in the case of an overflow within the queue - the head element - instead of the last skb (tail). To remove the oldest skb in congested situations is useful for sensor network environments where newer packets reflect the superior information.

2009-08-06net: Avoid enqueuing skb for default qdiscsKrishna Kumar1-0/+3
dev_queue_xmit enqueue's a skb and calls qdisc_run which dequeue's the skb and xmits it. In most cases, the skb that is enqueue'd is the same one that is dequeue'd (unless the queue gets stopped or multiple cpu's write to the same queue and ends in a race with qdisc_run). For default qdiscs, we can remove the redundant enqueue/dequeue and simply xmit the skb since the default qdisc is work-conserving. The patch uses a new flag - TCQ_F_CAN_BYPASS to identify the default fast queue. The controversial part of the patch is incrementing qlen when a skb is requeued - this is to avoid checks like the second line below: + } else if ((q->flags & TCQ_F_CAN_BYPASS) && !qdisc_qlen(q) && >> !q->gso_skb && + !test_and_set_bit(__QDISC_STATE_RUNNING, &q->state)) { Results of a 2 hour testing for multiple netperf sessions (1, 2, 4, 8, 12 sessions on a 4 cpu system-X).

2009-06-09pkt_sched: Change PSCHED_SHIFT from 10 to 6Jarek Poplawski1-2/+2
Change PSCHED_SHIFT from 10 to 6 to increase schedulers time resolution. This will increase 16x a number of (internal) ticks per nanosecond, and is needed to improve accuracy of schedulers based on rate tables, like HTB, TBF or CBQ, with rates above 100Mbit. It is assumed this change is safe for 32bit accounting of time diffs up to 2 minutes, which should be enough for common use (extremely low rate values may overflow, so get inaccurate instead). To make full use of this change an updated iproute2 will be needed. (But using older iproute2 should be safe too.) This change breaks ticks - microseconds similarity, so some minor code fixes might be needed. It is also planned to change naming adequately eg. to PSCHED_TICKS2NS() etc. in the near future.

2008-09-23pkt_sched: Remove the tx queue state check in qdisc_run()Jarek Poplawski1-4/+1
The current check wrongly uses the state of one (currently the first) tx queue for all tx queues in case of non-default qdiscs. This check mainly prevented requeuing loop with __netif_schedule(), but now it's controlled inside __qdisc_run(), while dequeuing. The wrongness of this check was first noticed by Herbert Xu.

This patch adds global spinlock qdisc_list_lock and wrapper functions for modifying the list. It is considered as a temporary solution until hfsc_dequeue(), netem_dequeue() and tbf_dequeue() (or qdisc_tree_decrease_qlen()) are redone. With feedback from Herbert Xu and David S. Miller.

2008-08-13pkt_sched: Add queue stopped test back to qdisc_run().David S. Miller1-1/+4
Based upon a bug report by Andrew Gallatin on netdev with subject "CPU utilization increased in 2.6.27rc" In commit 37437bb2e1ae8af470dfcd5b4ff454110894ccaf ("pkt_sched: Schedule qdiscs instead of netdev_queue.") the test of the queue being stopped was erroneously removed from qdisc_run(). When the TX queue of the device fills up, this omission causes lots of extraneous useless work to be queued up to softirq context, where we'll just return immediately because the device is still stuffed up.

2008-07-17pkt_sched: Schedule qdiscs instead of netdev_queue.David S. Miller1-7/+4
When we have shared qdiscs, packets come out of the qdiscs for multiple transmit queues. Therefore it doesn't make any sense to schedule the transmit queue when logically we cannot know ahead of time the TX queue of the SKB that the qdisc->dequeue() will give us. Just for sanity I added a BUG check to make sure we never get into a state where the noop_qdisc is scheduled. Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2008-07-17pkt_sched: Make QDISC_RUNNING a qdisc state.David S. Miller1-1/+3

2008-07-17net: Use queue aware tests throughout.David S. Miller1-3/+1
This effectively "flips the switch" by making the core networking and multiqueue-aware drivers use the new TX multiqueue structures. Non-multiqueue drivers need no changes. The interfaces they use such as netif_stop_queue() degenerate into an operation on TX queue zero. So everything "just works" for them. Code that really wants to do "X" to all TX queues now invokes a routine that does so, such as netif_tx_wake_all_queues(), netif_tx_stop_all_queues(), etc. pktgen and netpoll required a little bit more surgery than the others. In particular the pktgen changes, whilst functional, could be largely improved. The initial check in pktgen_xmit() will sometimes check the wrong queue, which is mostly harmless. The thing to do is probably to invoke fill_packet() earlier. The bulk of the netpoll changes is to make the code operate solely on the TX queue indicated by by the SKB queue mapping. Setting of the SKB queue mapping is entirely confined inside of net/core/dev.c:dev_pick_tx(). If we end up needing any kind of special semantics (drops, for example) it will be implemented here. Finally, we now have a "real_num_tx_queues" which is where the driver indicates how many TX queues are actually active. With IGB changes from Jeff Kirsher. Signed-off-by: David S.

2007-07-15[NET_SCHED]: act_api: qdisc internal reclassify supportPatrick McHardy1-1/+3
The behaviour of NET_CLS_POLICE for TC_POLICE_RECLASSIFY was to return it to the qdisc, which could handle it internally or ignore it. With NET_CLS_ACT however, tc_classify starts over at the first classifier and never returns it to the qdisc. This makes it impossible to support qdisc-internal reclassification, which in turn makes it impossible to remove the old NET_CLS_POLICE code without breaking compatibility since we have two qdiscs (CBQ and ATM) that support this. This patch adds a tc_classify_compat function that handles reclassification the old way and changes CBQ and ATM to use it. This again is of course not fully backwards compatible with the previous NET_CLS_ACT behaviour. Unfortunately there is no way to fully maintain compatibility *and* support qdisc internal reclassification with NET_CLS_ACT, but this seems like the better choice over keeping the two incompatible options around forever.

2006-06-19[NET]: Prevent multiple qdisc runsHerbert Xu1-3/+4
Having two or more qdisc_run's contend against each other is bad because it can induce packet reordering if the packets have to be requeued. It appears that this is an unintended consequence of relinquinshing the queue lock while transmitting. That in turn is needed for devices that spend a lot of time in their transmit routine. There are no advantages to be had as devices with queues are inherently single-threaded (the loopback device is not but then it doesn't have a queue). Even if you were to add a queue to a parallel virtual device (e.g., bolt a tbf filter in front of an ipip tunnel device), you would still want to process the queue in sequence to ensure that the packets are ordered correctly. The solution here is to steal a bit from net_device to prevent this. BTW, as qdisc_restart is no longer used by anyone as a module inside the kernel (IIRC it used to with netif_wake_queue), I have not exported the new __qdisc_run function.
