  1. [PATCH] arch/i386/pci/mmconfig.c tlb flush fix

    OGAWA Hirofumi committed with Linus Torvalds
    We use the fixmap for accessing pci config space in pci_mmcfg_read/write().
    The problem is in pci_exp_set_dev_base(). It is caching a last
    accessed address to avoid calling set_fixmap_nocache() whenever
    pci_mmcfg_read/write() is used.
      static inline void pci_exp_set_dev_base(int bus, int devfn)
    	u32 dev_base = base | (bus << 20) | (devfn << 12);
    	if (dev_base != mmcfg_last_accessed_device) {
    		mmcfg_last_accessed_device = dev_base;
    		set_fixmap_nocache(FIX_PCIE_MCFG, dev_base);
                cpu0                                        cpu1
                /* doesn't flush tlb */
    But if cpus accessed the above order, the second pci_mmcfg_read() on
    cpu0 doesn't flush the TLB, because "mmcfg_last_accessed_device" is
    device-B.  So, second pci_mmcfg_read() on cpu0 accesses a device-A via
    a previous TLB cache. This problem became the cause of several strange
    This patches fixes this situation by adds "mmcfg_last_accessed_cpu" check.
    [ Alternatively, we could make a per-cpu mapping area or something. Not
      that it's probably worth it, but if we wanted to avoid all locking and
      instead just disable preemption, that would be the way to go. --Linus ]

    When this code was converted to use sk_for_each() the
    logic for the "best hash chain length" code was reversed,
    breaking everything.
    The original code was of the form:
    			size = 0;
    			do {
    				if (++size >= best_size_so_far)
    					goto next;
    			} while ((sk = sk->next) != NULL);
    			best_size_so_far = size;
    			best = result;
    and this got converted into:
    			sk_for_each(sk2, node, head)
    				if (++size < best_size_so_far) {
    					best_size_so_far = size;
    					best = result;

    [TCP]: Fix ambiguity in the `before' relation.

    grrtrr committed with David S. Miller
    While looking at DCCP sequence numbers, I stumbled over a problem with
    the following definition of before in tcp.h:
    static inline int before(__u32 seq1, __u32 seq2)
            return (__s32)(seq1-seq2) < 0;
    Problem: This definition suffers from an an ambiguity, i.e. always
               before(a, (a + 2^31) % 2^32)) = 1
               before((a + 2^31) % 2^32), a) = 1
             In text: when the difference between a and b amounts to 2^31,
             a is always considered `before' b, the function can not decide.
             The reason is that implicitly 0 is `before' 1 ... 2^31-1 ... 2^31
    Solution: There is a simple fix, by defining before in such a way that
              0 is no longer `before' 2^31, i.e. 0 `before' 1 ... 2^31-1
              By not using the middle between 0 and 2^32, before can be made
              This is achieved by testing whether seq2-seq1 > 0 (using signed
              32-bit arithmetic).
    I attach a patch to codify this. Also the `after' relation is basically
    a redefinition of `before', it is now defined as a macro after before.

  17. [PATCH] build compile.h earlier

    Andrew Morton committed with Linus Torvalds
    compile.h is created super-late in the build.  But proc_misc.c want to include
    it, and it's generally not sane to have a header file in include/linux be
    created at the end of the build: it's either not present or, worse, wrong for
    most of the build.
    So the patch arranges for compile.h to be built at the start of the build
    process.  It also consolidates the compile.h rules with those for version.h
    and utsname.h, so they all get built together.
    I hope.  My chances of having got this right are about 2%.

    Ingo Molnar committed with Linus Torvalds
    … and APM idle code
    Fernando Lopez-Lezcano reported frequent scheduling latencies and audio
    xruns starting at the 2.6.18-rt kernel, and those problems persisted all
    until current -rt kernels. The latencies were serious and unjustified by
    system load, often in the milliseconds range.
    After a patient and heroic multi-month effort of Fernando, where he
    tested dozens of kernels, tried various configs, boot options,
    test-patches of mine and provided latency traces of those incidents, the
    following 'smoking gun' trace was captured by him:

    what is visible in this trace is that CPU#1 ran try_to_wake_up() for
    PID:5856, it placed PID:5856 on CPU#0's runqueue and ran resched_task()
    for CPU#0. But it decided to not send an IPI that no CPU - due to
    TS_POLLING. But CPU#0 never woke up after its NEED_RESCHED bit was set,
    and only rescheduled to PID:5856 upon the next lapic timer IRQ. The
    result was a 600+ usecs latency and a missed wakeup!
    the bug turned out to be an idle-wakeup bug introduced into the mainline
    kernel this summer via an optimization in the x86_64 tree:
        commit 495ab9c
        Author: Andi Kleen <>
        Date:   Mon Jun 26 13:59:11 2006 +0200
        [PATCH] i386/x86-64/ia64: Move polling flag into thread_info_status
        During some profiling I noticed that default_idle causes a lot of
        memory traffic. I think that is caused by the atomic operations
        to clear/set the polling flag in thread_info. There is actually
        no reason to make this atomic - only the idle thread does it
        to itself, other CPUs only read it. So I moved it into ti->status.
    the problem is this type of change:
            if (!hlt_counter && boot_cpu_data.hlt_works_ok) {
    -               clear_thread_flag(TIF_POLLING_NRFLAG);
    +               current_thread_info()->status &= ~TS_POLLING;
                    while (!need_resched()) {
    this changes clear_thread_flag() to an explicit clearing of TS_POLLING.
    clear_thread_flag() is defined as:
            clear_bit(flag, &ti->flags);
    and clear_bit() is a LOCK-ed atomic instruction on all x86 platforms:
      static inline void clear_bit(int nr, volatile unsigned long * addr)
              __asm__ __volatile__( LOCK_PREFIX
                      "btrl %1,%0"
    hence smp_mb__after_clear_bit() is defined as a simple compile barrier:
      #define smp_mb__after_clear_bit()       barrier()
    but the explicit TS_POLLING clearing introduced by the patch:
    +               current_thread_info()->status &= ~TS_POLLING;
    is not an atomic op! So the clearing of the TS_POLLING bit is freely
    reorderable with the reading of the NEED_RESCHED bit - and both now
    reside in different memory addresses.
    CPU idle wakeup very much depends on ordered memory ops, the clearing of
    the TS_POLLING flag must always be done before we test need_resched()
    and hit the idle instruction(s). [Symmetrically, the wakeup code needs
    to set NEED_RESCHED before it tests the TS_POLLING flag, so memory
    ordering is paramount.]
    Fernando's dual-core Athlon64 system has a sufficiently advanced memory
    ordering model so that it triggered this scenario very often.
    ( And it also turned out that the reason why these latencies never
      triggered on my testsystems is that i routinely use idle=poll, which
      was the only idle variant not affected by this bug. )
    The fix is to change the smp_mb__after_clear_bit() to an smp_mb(), to
    act as an absolute barrier between the TS_POLLING write and the
    NEED_RESCHED read. This affects almost all idling methods (default,
    ACPI, APM), on all 3 x86 architectures: i386, x86_64, ia64.

    Hisashi Hifumi committed with Linus Torvalds
    In the current jbd code, if a buffer on BJ_SyncData list is dirty and not
    locked, the buffer is refiled to BJ_Locked list, submitted to the IO and
    waited for IO completion.
    But the fsstress test showed the case that when a buffer was already
    submitted to the IO just before the buffer_dirty(bh) check, the buffer was
    not waited for IO completion.
    Following patch solves this problem.  If it is assumed that a buffer is
    submitted to the IO before the buffer_dirty(bh) check and still being
    written to disk, this buffer is refiled to BJ_Locked list.

       allocates larger memory windows to CardBus controllers where possible.
       However, resource windows are static (that is, the operating system
       does not dynamically allocate larger memory windows if new devices
       appear.) Under Windows XP, CardBus controllers will be assigned the
       following resources:
       One 4K memory window, as in Windows 2000
       64 MB memory, if that amount of memory is available. If 64 MB is not
       available the controller will receive 32 MB; if 32 MB is not available,
       the controller will receive 16 MB; if 16 MB is not available, the
       bridge will receive 8 MB; and so on down to a minimum assignment of 1
       MB in configurations where memory is too constrained for the operating
       system to provide a larger window.
       Two 256-byte I/O windows"
    So I think we have our answer. Windows uses one 4k window, and one 64MB
    window. And they are no more dynamic than we are (we _could_ try to do it
    dynamically, but let's face it, it's fairly painful to dynamically expand
    PCI bus resources - you may need to reprogram everything up to the root,
    so it would be absolutely crazy to do that unless you have some serious
    masochistic tendencies).
    So let's just increase our default value to 64M too.

    [PATCH] ptrace: Fix EFL_OFFSET value according to i386 pda changes

    jsgf committed with Linus Torvalds
    The PDA patches introduced a bug in ptrace: it reads eflags from the wrong
    place on the target's stack, but writes it back to the correct place.  The
    result is a corrupted eflags, which is most visible when it turns interrupts
    off unexpectedly.
    This patch fixes this by making the ptrace code a little less fragile.  It
    changes [gs]et_stack_long to take a straightforward byte offset into struct
    pt_regs, rather than requiring all callers to do a sizeof(struct pt_regs)
    offset adjustment.  This means that the eflag's offset (EFL_OFFSET) on the
    target stack can be simply computed with offsetof().

    Fix compile error when config memory hotplug with numa on i386.
    The cause of compile error was missing of arch_add_memory(),
    remove_memory(), and memory_add_physaddr_to_nid().

    Make kernel-doc support unnamed (anonymous) structs and unions.  There is

    currently generating a kernel-doc warning, so this fixes that warning.
