ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/akpm/patches/2.6/2.6.13-rc3/2.6.13-rc3-mm3/

- Added the anonymous pagefault scalability enhancement patches.

I remain fairly dubious about this - it seems a fairly specific and
complex piece of work to speed up one extremely specific part of one type of
computer's one type of workload. Surely there's a better way :(

The patches at present spit warnings or don't compile on lots of
architectures. x86, x86_64, ppc64 and ia64 are OK.

- There's a pretty large x86_64 update here which naughty maintainer wants
in 2.6.13. Extra testing, please.

- Dropped git-net.patch (davem's net devel tree). I'm seeing weird TCP
hangs. I'm fairly sure they're present in mainline, but was unable to
reproduce it without git-net.patch when I was actually trying.

This patch broke the compilation on i386 with CONFIG_SMP=n and
CONFIG_MTRR=y:

I have the same error here (MTRR enabled and no SMP).
I solved it by adding #ifdef CONFIG_SMP around lines 224 to 226 in this
file, but I am not sure it is totally safe.
I don't see why smp specific operations are not protected this way in
this file.

There are two problems with the compilation of arch/x86_64/kernel/nmi.c.
The following patch fixes them.

This bit is no longer needed, since

The patches provide the basis for more work on this issue. But we need to
start somewhere. The specific issue addresses in the initial patchset is
becoming a common case for multi-core applications.

I have just sent a fix to you this morning when I got your messages.
Sadly I do not have access to the architectures that failed (arm, alpha
and ppc32) but the fix simply removes code that is not used for these
arches.

ARM can't support atomic page table operations as such - the Linux view
of the page table is separate from the hardware view, and there's some
CPU specific code which translates from the Linux view to the hardware
view.

Looking at the actual patches, particularly pte_xchg-and-pte_cmpxchg.patch
combined with the above, the ARM solution would be to go back to using
non-atomic operations here (since we can't do this atomically.) Also,
since the MMU will only ever read from the page tables, I don't think
we need to play any games with clearing out ptes before we replace the
value.

Hello Andrew,

I have some questions :-)
Reiser4:

why there are undefined functions implemented that currently not in use?
This messages appeared first time in 2.6.13-rc3-mm2.

Any why it complains even CONFIG_REISER4_DEBUG is not set?
Please have a look at the -->snip

SCSI:

CONFIG_SCSI_QLA2XXX=y ? I haven't choose that one..I never did..and
where is the config located?
In the place where it is..is no option marked.

Thanks for help,

That's due to the code using `#if CONFIG_xx' instead of `#ifdef'.

Someone was doing wrong things in the Makefile. I think that has been
subsequently fixed.

These aren't functions, these are #if FOO where FOO isn't #define'd.
In most such cases, changing the #if ti #ifdef fixes the issue (and in
some rare cases these warnings fix bugs).

Since 2.6.13-rc3-mm2 the gcc Warning for such things was activated.

It's located in drivers/scsi/qla2xxx/Kconfig.

It shouldn't [1] activate any code, it's simply a helper option that
tells whether the QLA* options should be shown.

This patch is wrong since it adds a select to SCSI_QLA2XXX.
Please drop it.

Andrew Vasquez had a better fix and is discussing it with James.

Yes. The patches fall back to nonatomic operations for ARM.

Ok. Then you can use a part of the patches. Define ptep_xchg and
ptep_cmpxchg for ARM so that you do can avoid intermittently clearing
ptes.

Here is the patch that I sent to Andrew in the morning:

Hello Andrew,

here again I have two problems. With 2.6.13-rc3-mm3 I have problems
using my SATA drives on Intel ICH6.
The kernel can't route there IRQs or can't discover them. the option
irqpoll got them to work now.
The problem is new because 2.6.13-rc3[-mm1,mm2] work without any problems.

The SATA drives are Samsung HD160JJ SATAII. The mainboard I use is a
ASUS P4GPL-X.

Second one is about Intel HD-Codec (snd-hda-intel) on modprobe when
loading the module it gives me

OK

BTW, -mm3 works fine for me on two AMD64 boxes except for one thing:
On Asus L5D, if I resume the box from disk on battery power (ie the box is started
on battery power and resumes from disk), it hangs solid right after copying
the image (100% of the time). If it is resumed on AC power, everything is fine.

Well, -mm1[1-2] did the same thing so I think I'll create a Bugzilla entry and
start a binary search. :-( The -git[5-9] kernels are not affected by this issue.

Greets,
Rafael

PS
Could you please tell me how I can figure out the order in which the individual
patches in -mm have been applied?

Hi!
Sorry for interfering but I have the Asus P5RD1-VD with the Realtek
ALC861 (10b9:5461) and with 2.6.13.3 I've got the problem that he
doesn't find /dev/mixer or anything after modprobe snd-hda-intel...

After I attached
http://dlsvr01.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/socket775/P5RD1-V/Audio_Linux.zip
(which doesn't work) to a mail in alsa-devel they told me...

"[...]

It tries to access the ALi controller in the same way as the Intel
controller.

It may be possible that the ALi chip was designed to be compatible
with Intel's, but that they got some detail wrong. Or that the driver
gets some detail wrong. There's no way to know without docs[...]"

(not in the archive, yet...)

It's all in the series file:

ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/akpm/patches/2.6/2.6.13-rc3/2.6.13-rc3-mm3/patch-series

The simplest way to do a binary search is to grab
ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/akpm/patches/2.6/2.6.13-rc3/2.6.13-rc3-mm3/2.6.13-rc3-mm3-broken-out.tar.bz2
and to place all the patches in ./patches/, place the series file in
./series, download and install https://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/quilt/
and do the binary search with `quilt push' and `quilt pop'.

It's pretty simple - it'll take ten minutes to get the hang of it. You
need to create a separate copy of the series file and edit it to record
where you're up to in the search. From experience ;)

OK. Please generate the full dmesg output for -mm2 and for -mm3 and run
`diff -u dmesg.mm2 dmesg.mm3' and send it? And keep those files because we
may end up needing to add them to an acpi bugzilla entry ;)

Does -mm2 print that `unknown model' message?

Is still regressed as of 2.6.12 for me, at least. Crashes in TSC sync.
Talked to Andi about it at OLS, but then drank too much to remember the
conclusion ... however, it's still broken ;-)

Matrix is here (see left hand column).

NUMA-Q boxes are still crashing on boot with -mm BTW. Is the thing we
identified earlier with the sched patches ...

Works with mainline still (including -rc4) ... hopefully those patches
aren't on their way upstream anytime soon ;-)

OK, and one last one ... on a more postitive note. rc3-mm3 does indeed fix
the problems crashing on boot I was having on PPC64 with -rc3-mm2. I'll
close the bugzilla bug.

Thanks!

Does Eric's recent fix fix it?


From: Eric W. Biederman <ebie...@xmission.com>

sync_tsc was using smp_call_function to ask the boot processor to report
it's tsc value. smp_call_function performs an IPI_send_allbutself which is
a broadcast ipi. There is a window during processor startup during which
the target cpu has started and before it has initialized it's interrupt
vectors so it can properly process an interrupt. Receveing an interrupt
during that window will triple fault the cpu and do other nasty things.

Why cli does not protect us from that is beyond me.

The simple fix is to match ia64 and provide a smp_call_function_single.
Which avoids the broadcast and is more efficient.

This certainly fixes the problem of getting stuck on boot which was very
easy to trigger on my SMP Hyperthreaded Xeon, and I think it fixes it for
the right reasons.

I believe this patch suffers from apicid versus logical cpu number
confusion. I copied the basic logic from smp_send_reschedule and I can't
find where that translates from the logical cpuid to apicid. So it isn't
quite correct yet. It should be close enough that it shouldn't be too hard
to finish it up.

More bug fixes after I have slept but I figured I needed to get this
one out for review.

That tree may be very helpful if the regression is hidden in one of the
git trees imported into -mm, as it allows you to pinpoint the exact change
-- as opposed to "it happened somewhere in git-large-foobar-update.patch".

Basically, you do this:

$ set -o noclobber
$ git-rev-tree --bisect ^good1 ^good2 bad > .git/refs/heads/tryN
$ git checkout tryN

(Initially, "good" is v2.6.12 or whatever version last worked for you;
"bad" is "master", thus:
$ git-rev-tree --bisect ^v2.6.12 master > .git/refs/heads/tryN
)

Build kernel, test. If good, add tryN to the list of good kernels, above;
if bad, replace "bad" with "tryN". N += 1. Repeat.

With respect to the fix that is final. The rest of the bug
fixes in my queue are for other problems.

Mostly my concerns are with respect to apicid vs logical cpu
numbers that I'm not certain are handled properly in the code.
genapic_flat doesn't seem to do any translation. And I don't
recall if boot_cpu_id is an apic_id or a logical cpu number.
On most hardware it is 0 in either case so it doesn't matter.

I'm sorry to say that, Yes.

I finially compiled a fresh 2.6.13-rc4-git1 kernel with ck-patch and
Gregh-kh patches.

With this kernel non of the problems I had with mm-kernel are present.
Here is everthing just perfect..now
I attached a dmesg output for review :-)

The Oops on probing snd-hda-intel gone. It works now ... Mozart rocks :-)
I look at the CVS tree of Alsa later.

I finialy converted my reiser4 root to reiser 3.6.

Where I can get acpidumb or what it is called?

Serial console is broken on ia64 on an HP rx2600 machine on
2.6.13-rc3-mm3. When kernel is booted up with "console=ttyS,...", no
output ever appears on the console and system is hung. So I booted the
kernel with "console=uart,mmio,0xff5e0000" to enable early console and
here is how far the kernel got before hanging:

Serial driver failed to find any serial ports. I am using defconfig. A
2.6.13-rc3 kernel (no mm3 patch) compiled with defconfig boots up fine
and finds all serial ports.

(cc the ia64 and acpi lists)

OK, thanks. There have been a few serial driver changes recently, but
there's also a tremendous ACPI patch in -mm. I'm wondering about those
ACPI error messages:

Does the above happen on 2.6.13-rc3 or 2.6.13-rc4?

Well it did claim to find an 8250 controller.

If you have time, it would be useful if you could obtain the 2.6.13-rc3 dmesg
output and do

diff -u dmesg-2.6.13-rc3 dmesg-2.6.13-rc3-mm3

and send it, thanks.

The above patch causes the BUG below on the Zaurus (arm pxa255 with
preempt enabled). This can only be due to the suspicious looking changes
to kernel/softirq.c in that patch...
