2011-12-15[S390] cputime: add sparse checking and cleanupMartin Schwidefsky1-80/+52
Make cputime_t and cputime64_t nocast to enable sparse checking to detect incorrect use of cputime. Drop the cputime macros for simple scalar operations. The conversion macros are still needed. Signed-off-by: Martin Schwidefsky <schwidefsky@de.ibm.com>

2011-10-18cputimer: Cure lock inversionPeter Zijlstra1-3/+4
There's a lock inversion between the cputimer->lock and rq->lock; notably the two callchains involved are: update_rlimit_cpu() sighand->siglock set_process_cpu_timer() cpu_timer_sample_group() thread_group_cputimer() cputimer->lock thread_group_cputime() task_sched_runtime() ->pi_lock rq->lock scheduler_tick() rq->lock task_tick_fair() update_curr() account_group_exec() cputimer->lock Where the first one is enabling a CLOCK_PROCESS_CPUTIME_ID timer, and the second one is keeping up-to-date. This problem was introduced by e8abccb7193 ("posix-cpu-timers: Cure SMP accounting oddities"). Cure the problem by removing the cputimer->lock and rq->lock nesting, this leaves concurrent enablers doing duplicate work, but the time wasted should be on the same order otherwise wasted spinning on the lock and the greater-than assignment filter should ensure we preserve monotonicity.

2011-09-30posix-cpu-timers: Cure SMP wobblesPeter Zijlstra1-2/+3
David reported: Attached below is a watered-down version of rt/tst-cpuclock2.c from GLIBC. Just build it with "gcc -o test test.c -lpthread -lrt" or similar. Run it several times, and you will see cases where the main thread will measure a process clock difference before and after the nanosleep which is smaller than the cpu-burner thread's individual thread clock difference. This doesn't make any sense since the cpu-burner thread is part of the top-level process's thread group. I've reproduced this on both x86-64 and sparc64 (using both 32-bit and 64-bit binaries). For example: [davem@boricha build-x86_64-linux]$ ./test process: before(0.001221967) after(0.498624371) diff(497402404) thread: before(0.000081692) after(0.498316431) diff(498234739) self: before(0.001223521) after(0.001240219) diff(16698) [davem@boricha build-x86_64-linux]$ The diff of 'process' should always be >= the diff of 'thread'. I make sure to wrap the 'thread' clock measurements the most tightly around the nanosleep() call, and that the 'process' clock measurements are the outer-most ones. --- #include <unistd.h> #include <stdio.h> #include <stdlib.h> #include <time.h> #include <fcntl.h> #include <string.h> #include <errno.h> #include <pthread.h> static pthread_barrier_t barrier; static void *chew_cpu(void *arg) { pthread_barrier_wait(&barrier); while (1) __asm__ __volatile__("" : : : "memory"); return NULL; } int main(void) { clockid_t process_clock, my_thread_clock, th_clock; struct timespec process_before, process_after; struct timespec me_before, me_after; struct timespec th_before, th_after; struct timespec sleeptime; unsigned long diff; pthread_t th; int err; err = clock_getcpuclockid(0, &process_clock); if (err) return 1; err = pthread_getcpuclockid(pthread_self(), &my_thread_clock); if (err) return 1; pthread_barrier_init(&barrier, NULL, 2); err = pthread_create(&th, NULL, chew_cpu, NULL); if (err) return 1; err = pthread_getcpuclockid(th, &th_clock); if (err) return 1; pthread_barrier_wait(&barrier); err = clock_gettime(process_clock, &process_before); if (err) return 1; err = clock_gettime(my_thread_clock, &me_before); if (err) return 1; err = clock_gettime(th_clock, &th_before); if (err) return 1; sleeptime.tv_sec = 0; sleeptime.tv_nsec = 500000000; nanosleep(&sleeptime, NULL); err = clock_gettime(th_clock, &th_after); if (err) return 1; err = clock_gettime(my_thread_clock, &me_after); if (err) return 1; err = clock_gettime(process_clock, &process_after); if (err) return 1; diff = process_after.tv_nsec - process_before.tv_nsec; printf("process: before(%lu.%.9lu) after(%lu.%.9lu) diff(%lu)\n", process_before.tv_sec, process_before.tv_nsec, process_after.tv_sec, process_after.tv_nsec, diff); diff = th_after.tv_nsec - th_before.tv_nsec; printf("thread: before(%lu.%.9lu) after(%lu.%.9lu) diff(%lu)\n", th_before.tv_sec, th_before.tv_nsec, th_after.tv_sec, th_after.tv_nsec, diff); diff = me_after.tv_nsec - me_before.tv_nsec; printf("self: before(%lu.%.9lu) after(%lu.%.9lu) diff(%lu)\n", me_before.tv_sec, me_before.tv_nsec, me_after.tv_sec, me_after.tv_nsec, diff); return 0; } This is due to us using p->se.sum_exec_runtime in thread_group_cputime() where we iterate the thread group and sum all data. This does not take time since the last schedule operation (tick or otherwise) into account. We can cure this by using task_sched_runtime() at the cost of having to take locks. This also means we can (and must) do away with thread_group_sched_runtime() since the modified thread_group_cputime() is now more accurate and would deadlock when called from thread_group_sched_runtime(). Aside of that it makes the function safe on 32 bit systems. The old code added t->se.sum_exec_runtime unprotected. sum_exec_runtime is a 64bit value and could be changed on another cpu at the same time.

2010-06-18sched: Fix the racy usage of thread_group_cputimer() in fastpath_timer_check()Oleg Nesterov1-1/+4
fastpath_timer_check()->thread_group_cputimer() is racy and unneeded. It is racy because another thread can clear ->running before thread_group_cputimer() takes cputimer->lock. In this case thread_group_cputimer() will set ->running = true again and call thread_group_cputime(). But since we do not hold tasklist or siglock, we can race with fork/exit and copy the wrong results into cputimer->cputime. It is unneeded because if ->running == true we can just use the numbers in cputimer->cputime we already have. Change fastpath_timer_check() to copy cputimer->cputime into the local variable under cputimer->lock. We do not re-check ->running under cputimer->lock, run_posix_cpu_timers() does this check later. Note: we can add more optimizations on top of this change.

run_posix_cpu_timers() doesn't work if current has already passed exit_notify(). This was needed to prevent the races with do_wait(). Since ea6d290c ->signal is always valid and can't go away. We can remove the "tsk->exit_state == 0" in fastpath_timer_check() and convert run_posix_cpu_timers() to use lock_task_sighand(). Note: it makes sense to take group_leader's sighand instead, the sub-thread still uses CPU after release_task(). But we need more changes to do this.

2010-06-18sched: thread_group_cputime: Simplify, document the "alive" checkOleg Nesterov1-14/+7
thread_group_cputime() looks as if it is rcu-safe, but in fact this was wrong until ea6d290c which pins task->signal to task_struct. It checks ->sighand != NULL under rcu, but this can't help if ->signal can go away. Fortunately the caller either holds ->siglock, or it is fastpath_timer_check() which uses current and checks exit_state == 0. - Since ea6d290c commit tsk->signal is stable, we can read it first and avoid the initialization from INIT_CPUTIME. - Even if tsk->signal is always valid, we still have to check it is safe to use next_thread() under rcu_read_lock(). Currently the code checks ->sighand != NULL, change it to use pid_alive() which is commonly used to ensure the task wasn't unhashed before we take rcu_read_lock(). Add the comment to explain this check. - Change the main loop to use the while_each_thread() helper.

2010-05-27posix-cpu-timers: avoid "task->signal != NULL" checksOleg Nesterov1-6/+6
Preparation to make task->signal immutable, no functional changes. posix-cpu-timers.c checks task->signal != NULL to ensure this task is alive and didn't pass __exit_signal(). This is correct but we are going to change the lifetime rules for ->signal and never reset this pointer. Change the code to check ->sighand instead, it doesn't matter which pointer we check under tasklist, they both are cleared simultaneously. As Roland pointed out, some of these changes are not strictly needed and probably it makes sense to revert them later, when ->signal will be pinned to task_struct. But this patch tries to ensure the subsequent changes in fork/exit can't make any visible impact on posix cpu timers.

Spread p->sighand->siglock locking scope to make sure that fastpath_timer_check() never iterates over all threads. Without locking there is small possibility that signal->cputimer will stop running while we write values to signal->cputime_expires.

Let always set signal->cputime_expires expiration cache when setting new itimer, POSIX 1.b timer, and RLIMIT_CPU.

When a process deletes cpu timer or a timer expires we do not clear the expiration cache sig->cputimer_expires. As a result the fastpath_timer_check() which prevents us to loop over all threads in case no timer is active is not working and we run the slow path needlessly on every tick.

2009-04-01posixtimers, sched: Fix posix clock monotonicityHidetoshi Seto1-3/+4
Impact: Regression fix (against clock_gettime() backwarding bug) This patch re-introduces a couple of functions, task_sched_runtime and thread_group_sched_runtime, which was once removed at the time of 2.6.28-rc1. These functions protect the sampling of thread/process clock with rq lock. This rq lock is required not to update rq->clock during the sampling. i.e. The clock_gettime() may return ((accounted runtime before update) + (delta after update)) that is less than what it should be. v2 -> v3: - Rename static helper function __task_delta_exec() to do_task_delta_exec() since -tip tree already has a __task_delta_exec() of different version. v1 -> v2: - Revises comments of function and patch description. - Add note about accuracy of thread group's runtime.

2009-03-23posix timers: fix RLIMIT_CPU && fork()Oleg Nesterov1-1/+2
See http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12911 copy_signal() copies signal->rlim, but RLIMIT_CPU is "lost". Because posix_cpu_timers_init_group() sets cputime_expires.prof_exp = 0 and thus fastpath_timer_check() returns false unless we have other cpu timers. This is the minimal fix for 2.6.29 (tested) and 2.6.28. The patch is not optimal, we need further cleanups here. With this patch update_rlimit_cpu() is not really needed, but I don't think it should be removed. The proper fix (I think) is: - set_process_cpu_timer() should just start the cputimer->running logic (it does), no need to change cputime_expires.xxx_exp - posix_cpu_timers_init_group() should set ->running when needed - fastpath_timer_check() can check ->running instead of task_cputime_zero(signal->cputime_expires) Reported-by: Peter Lojkin <ia6432@inbox.ru> Signed-off-by: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@redhat.com> Cc: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org> Cc: Roland McGrath <roland@redhat.com> Cc: <stable@kernel.org> [for 2.6.29.x] LKML-Reference: <20090323193411.GA17514@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>
2009-02-13timers: more consistently use clock vs timerPeter Zijlstra1-30/+30
While reviewing the manpages, I noticed I'd missed some clock vs timer sites. Make sure that all timer functions call cpu_timer_sample_group() and not cpu_clock_sample_group(). This ensures that we enable the process wide timer in time, and therefore pay the O(n) thread group cost from the syscall. Not doing it here, will result in the first jiffy tick after setting the timer doing this, resulting in a very expensive tick (but only once) and a delay in actually starting the timer.

2009-02-05timers: split process wide cpu clocks/timersPeter Zijlstra1-4/+91
Change the process wide cpu timers/clocks so that we: 1) don't mess up the kernel with too many threads, 2) don't have a per-cpu allocation for each process, 3) have no impact when not used. In order to accomplish this we're going to split it into two parts: - clocks; which can take all the time they want since they run from user context -- ie. sys_clock_gettime(CLOCK_PROCESS_CPUTIME_ID) - timers; which need constant time sampling but since they're explicity used, the user can pay the overhead. The clock readout will go back to a full sum of the thread group, while the timers will run of a global 'clock' that only runs when needed, so only programs that make use of the facility pay the price.
