2011-12-11rcu: Fix early call to rcu_idle_enter()Frederic Weisbecker1-1/+1
On the irq exit path, tick_nohz_irq_exit() may raise a softirq, which action leads to the wake up path and select_task_rq_fair() that makes use of rcu to iterate the domains. This is an illegal use of RCU because we may be in RCU extended quiescent state if we interrupted an RCU-idle window in the idle loop: [ 132.978883] =============================== [ 132.978883] [ INFO: suspicious RCU usage. ] [ 132.978883] ------------------------------- [ 132.978883] kernel/sched_fair.c:1707 suspicious rcu_dereference_check() usage!

2011-12-11nohz: Separate out irq exit and idle loop dyntick logicFrederic Weisbecker1-1/+1
The tick_nohz_stop_sched_tick() function, which tries to delay the next timer tick as long as possible, can be called from two places: - From the idle loop to start the dytick idle mode - From interrupt exit if we have interrupted the dyntick idle mode, so that we reprogram the next tick event in case the irq changed some internal state that requires this action. There are only few minor differences between both that are handled by that function, driven by the ts->inidle cpu variable and the inidle parameter. The whole guarantees that we only update the dyntick mode on irq exit if we actually interrupted the dyntick idle mode, and that we enter in RCU extended quiescent state from idle loop entry only. Split this function into: - tick_nohz_idle_enter(), which sets ts->inidle to 1, enters dynticks idle mode unconditionally if it can, and enters into RCU extended quiescent state. - tick_nohz_irq_exit() which only updates the dynticks idle mode when ts->inidle is set (ie: if tick_nohz_idle_enter() has been called). To maintain symmetry, tick_nohz_restart_sched_tick() has been renamed into tick_nohz_idle_exit(). This simplifies the code and micro-optimize the irq exit path (no need for local_irq_save there). This also prepares for the split between dynticks and rcu extended quiescent state logics. We'll need this split to further fix illegal uses of RCU in extended quiescent states in the idle loop.

2011-07-20softirq,rcu: Inform RCU of irq_exit() activityPeter Zijlstra1-2/+10
The rcu_read_unlock_special() function relies on in_irq() to exclude scheduler activity from interrupt level. This fails because exit_irq() can invoke the scheduler after clearing the preempt_count() bits that in_irq() uses to determine that it is at interrupt level. This situation can result in failures as follows: $task IRQ SoftIRQ rcu_read_lock() /* do stuff */ <preempt> |= UNLOCK_BLOCKED rcu_read_unlock() --t->rcu_read_lock_nesting irq_enter(); /* do stuff, don't use RCU */ irq_exit(); sub_preempt_count(IRQ_EXIT_OFFSET); invoke_softirq() ttwu(); spin_lock_irq(&pi->lock) rcu_read_lock(); /* do stuff */ rcu_read_unlock(); rcu_read_unlock_special() rcu_report_exp_rnp() ttwu() spin_lock_irq(&pi->lock) /* deadlock */ rcu_read_unlock_special(t); Ed can simply trigger this 'easy' because invoke_softirq() immediately does a ttwu() of ksoftirqd/# instead of doing the in-place softirq stuff first, but even without that the above happens. Cure this by also excluding softirqs from the rcu_read_unlock_special() handler and ensuring the force_irqthreads ksoftirqd/# wakeup is done from full softirq context. [ Alternatively, delaying the ->rcu_read_lock_nesting decrement until after the special handling would make the thing more robust in the face of interrupts as well. And there is a separate patch for that. ] Cc: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de> Reported-and-tested-by: Ed Tomlinson <edt@aei.ca> Signed-off-by: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Signed-off-by: Paul E.

2011-06-14rcu: Use softirq to address performance regressionShaohua Li1-1/+1
Commit a26ac2455ffcf3(rcu: move TREE_RCU from softirq to kthread) introduced performance regression. In an AIM7 test, this commit degraded performance by about 40%. The commit runs rcu callbacks in a kthread instead of softirq. We observed high rate of context switch which is caused by this. Out test system has 64 CPUs and HZ is 1000, so we saw more than 64k context switch per second which is caused by RCU's per-CPU kthread. A trace showed that most of the time the RCU per-CPU kthread doesn't actually handle any callbacks, but instead just does a very small amount of work handling grace periods. This means that RCU's per-CPU kthreads are making the scheduler do quite a bit of work in order to allow a very small amount of RCU-related processing to be done. Alex Shi's analysis determined that this slowdown is due to lock contention within the scheduler. Unfortunately, as Peter Zijlstra points out, the scheduler's real-time semantics require global action, which means that this contention is inherent in real-time scheduling. (Yes, perhaps someone will come up with a workaround -- otherwise, -rt is not going to do well on large SMP systems -- but this patch will work around this issue in the meantime. And "the meantime" might well be forever.) This patch therefore re-introduces softirq processing to RCU, but only for core RCU work. RCU callbacks are still executed in kthread context, so that only a small amount of RCU work runs in softirq context in the common case. This should minimize ksoftirqd execution, allowing us to skip boosting of ksoftirqd for CONFIG_RCU_BOOST=y kernels.

2011-05-05rcu: move TREE_RCU from softirq to kthreadPaul E. McKenney1-1/+1
If RCU priority boosting is to be meaningful, callback invocation must be boosted in addition to preempted RCU readers. Otherwise, in presence of CPU real-time threads, the grace period ends, but the callbacks don't get invoked. If the callbacks don't get invoked, the associated memory doesn't get freed, so the system is still subject to OOM. But it is not reasonable to priority-boost RCU_SOFTIRQ, so this commit moves the callback invocations to a kthread, which can be boosted easily. Also add comments and properly synchronized all accesses to rcu_cpu_kthread_task, as suggested by Lai Jiangshan. Signed-off-by: Paul E. McKenney <paul.mckenney@linaro.org> Signed-off-by: Paul E.

2011-02-26genirq: Provide forced interrupt threadingThomas Gleixner1-2/+14
Add a commandline parameter "threadirqs" which forces all interrupts except those marked IRQF_NO_THREAD to run threaded. That's mostly a debug option to allow retrieving better debug data from crashing interrupt handlers. If "threadirqs" is not enabled on the kernel command line, then there is no impact in the interrupt hotpath. Architecture code needs to select CONFIG_IRQ_FORCED_THREADING after marking the interrupts which cant be threaded IRQF_NO_THREAD. All interrupts which have IRQF_TIMER set are implict marked IRQF_NO_THREAD. Also all PER_CPU interrupts are excluded. Forced threading hard interrupts also forces all soft interrupt handling into thread context. When enabled it might slow down things a bit, but for debugging problems in interrupt code it's a reasonable penalty as it does not immediately crash and burn the machine when an interrupt handler is buggy.

However, the address of a per cpu variable passed to __this_cpu_read() cannot be determined (since it's an implied address conversion through segment prefixes). Therefore apply this only to uses of __get_cpu_var where the address of the variable is not used.

2010-10-21tracing: Cleanup the convoluted softirq tracepointsThomas Gleixner1-7/+9
With the addition of trace_softirq_raise() the softirq tracepoint got even more convoluted. Why the tracepoints take two pointers to assign an integer is beyond my comprehension. But adding an extra case which treats the first pointer as an unsigned long when the second pointer is NULL including the back and forth type casting is just horrible. Convert the softirq tracepoints to take a single unsigned int argument for the softirq vector number and fix the call sites.

2010-10-18sched: Call tick_check_idle before __irq_enterVenkatesh Pallipadi1-3/+9
When CPU is idle and on first interrupt, irq_enter calls tick_check_idle() to notify interruption from idle. But, there is a problem if this call is done after __irq_enter, as all routines in __irq_enter may find stale time due to yet to be done tick_check_idle. Specifically, trace calls in __irq_enter when they use global clock and also account_system_vtime change in this patch as it wants to use sched_clock_cpu() to do proper irq timing. But, tick_check_idle was moved after __irq_enter intentionally to prevent problem of unneeded ksoftirqd wakeups by the commit ee5f80a: irq: call __irq_enter() before calling the tick_idle_check Impact: avoid spurious ksoftirqd wakeups Moving tick_check_idle() before __irq_enter and wrapping it with local_bh_enable/disable would solve both the problems.

2010-10-18sched: Add a PF flag for ksoftirqd identificationVenkatesh Pallipadi1-0/+1
To account softirq time cleanly in scheduler, we need to identify whether softirq is invoked in ksoftirqd context or softirq at hardirq tail context. Add PF_KSOFTIRQD for that purpose. As all PF flag bits are currently taken, create space by moving one of the infrequently used bits (PF_THREAD_BOUND) down in task_struct to be along with some other state fields.

2010-10-18sched: Fix softirq time accountingVenkatesh Pallipadi1-17/+34
Peter Zijlstra found a bug in the way softirq time is accounted in VIRT_CPU_ACCOUNTING on this thread: http://lkml.indiana.edu/hypermail//linux/kernel/1009.2/01366.html The problem is, softirq processing uses local_bh_disable internally. There is no way, later in the flow, to differentiate between whether softirq is being processed or is it just that bh has been disabled. So, a hardirq when bh is disabled results in time being wrongly accounted as softirq. Looking at the code a bit more, the problem exists in !VIRT_CPU_ACCOUNTING as well. As account_system_time() in normal tick based accouting also uses softirq_count, which will be set even when not in softirq with bh disabled. Peter also suggested solution of using 2*SOFTIRQ_OFFSET as irq count for local_bh_{disable,enable} and using just SOFTIRQ_OFFSET while softirq processing. The patch below does that and adds API in_serving_softirq() which returns whether we are currently processing softirq or not. Also changes one of the usages of softirq_count in net/sched/cls_cgroup.c to in_serving_softirq. Looks like many usages of in_softirq really want in_serving_softirq. Those changes can be made individually on a case by case basis.

2010-05-10rcu: refactor RCU's context-switch handlingPaul E. McKenney1-1/+1
The addition of preemptible RCU to treercu resulted in a bit of confusion and inefficiency surrounding the handling of context switches for RCU-sched and for RCU-preempt. For RCU-sched, a context switch is a quiescent state, pure and simple, just like it always has been. For RCU-preempt, a context switch is in no way a quiescent state, but special handling is required when a task blocks in an RCU read-side critical section. However, the callout from the scheduler and the outer loop in ksoftirqd still calls something named rcu_sched_qs(), whose name is no longer accurate. Furthermore, when rcu_check_callbacks() notes an RCU-sched quiescent state, it ends up unnecessarily (though harmlessly, aside from the performance hit) enqueuing the current task if it happens to be running in an RCU-preempt read-side critical section. This not only increases the maximum latency of scheduler_tick(), it also needlessly increases the overhead of the next outermost rcu_read_unlock() invocation. This patch addresses this situation by separating the notion of RCU's context-switch handling from that of RCU-sched's quiescent states. The context-switch handling is covered by rcu_note_context_switch() in general and by rcu_preempt_note_context_switch() for preemptible RCU. This permits rcu_sched_qs() to handle quiescent states and only quiescent states. It also reduces the maximum latency of scheduler_tick(), though probably by much less than a microsecond. Finally, it means that tasks within preemptible-RCU read-side critical sections avoid incurring the overhead of queuing unless there really is a context switch.

This patch moves rcu_irq_exit() out from under CONFIG_NO_HZ so that the calls are balanced.

2009-06-13tasklets: new tasklet scheduling functionVegard Nossum1-0/+11
Rationale: kmemcheck needs to be able to schedule a tasklet without touching any dynamically allocated memory _at_ _all_ (since that would lead to a recursive page fault). This tasklet is used for writing the error reports to the kernel log. The new scheduling function avoids touching any other tasklets by inserting the new tasklist as the head of the "tasklet_hi" list instead of on the tail. Also don't wake up the softirq thread lest the scheduler access some tracked memory and we go down with a recursive page fault. In this case, we'd better just wait for the maximum time of 1/HZ for the message to appear. Signed-off-by: Vegard Nossum <vegard.nossum@gmail.com>

2009-04-14tracing: create automated trace definesSteven Rostedt1-3/+0
This patch lowers the number of places a developer must modify to add new tracepoints. The current method to add a new tracepoint into an existing system is to write the trace point macro in the trace header with one of the macros TRACE_EVENT, TRACE_FORMAT or DECLARE_TRACE, then they must add the same named item into the C file with the macro DEFINE_TRACE(name) and then add the trace point. This change cuts out the needing to add the DEFINE_TRACE(name). Every file that uses the tracepoint must still include the trace/<type>.h file, but the one C file must also add a define before the including of that file. #define CREATE_TRACE_POINTS #include <trace/mytrace.h> This will cause the trace/mytrace.h file to also produce the C code necessary to implement the trace point. Note, if more than one trace/<type>.h is used to create the C code it is best to list them all together. #define CREATE_TRACE_POINTS #include <trace/foo.h> #include <trace/bar.h> #include <trace/fido.h> Thanks to Mathieu Desnoyers and Christoph Hellwig for coming up with the cleaner solution of the define above the includes over my first design to have the C code include a "special" header. This patch converts sched, irq and lockdep and skb to use this new method.
