      mm: Rename SLAB_DESTROY_BY_RCU to SLAB_TYPESAFE_BY_RCU · 5f0d5a3a
      Paul E. McKenney authored
      A group of Linux kernel hackers reported chasing a bug that resulted
      from their assumption that SLAB_DESTROY_BY_RCU provided an existence
      guarantee, that is, that no block from such a slab would be reallocated
      during an RCU read-side critical section.  Of course, that is not the
      case.  Instead, SLAB_DESTROY_BY_RCU only prevents freeing of an entire
      slab of blocks.
      However, there is a phrase for this, namely "type safety".  This commit
      therefore renames SLAB_DESTROY_BY_RCU to SLAB_TYPESAFE_BY_RCU in order
      to avoid future instances of this sort of confusion.

      net: add a limit parameter to sk_add_backlog() · f545a38f
      Eric Dumazet authored
      sk_add_backlog() & sk_rcvqueues_full() hard coded sk_rcvbuf as the
      memory limit. We need to make this limit a parameter for TCP use.
      No functional change expected in this patch, all callers still using the
      old sk_rcvbuf limit.

      include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking... · 5a0e3ad6
      Tejun Heo authored
      include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking implicit slab.h inclusion from percpu.h
      percpu.h is included by sched.h and module.h and thus ends up being
      included when building most .c files.  percpu.h includes slab.h which
      in turn includes gfp.h making everything defined by the two files
      universally available and complicating inclusion dependencies.
      percpu.h -> slab.h dependency is about to be removed.  Prepare for
      this change by updating users of gfp and slab facilities include those
      headers directly instead of assuming availability.  As this conversion
      needs to touch large number of source files, the following script is
      used as the basis of conversion.
      The script does the followings.
      * Scan files for gfp and slab usages and update includes such that
        only the necessary includes are there.  ie. if only gfp is used,
        gfp.h, if slab is used, slab.h.
      * When the script inserts a new include, it looks at the include
        blocks and try to put the new include such that its order conforms
        to its surrounding.  It's put in the include block which contains
        core kernel includes, in the same order that the rest are ordered -
        alphabetical, Christmas tree, rev-Xmas-tree or at the end if there
        doesn't seem to be any matching order.
      * If the script can't find a place to put a new include (mostly
        because the file doesn't have fitting include block), it prints out
        an error message indicating which .h file needs to be added to the
      The conversion was done in the following steps.
      1. The initial automatic conversion of all .c files updated slightly
         over 4000 files, deleting around 700 includes and adding ~480 gfp.h
         and ~3000 slab.h inclusions.  The script emitted errors for ~400
      2. Each error was manually checked.  Some didn't need the inclusion,
         some needed manual addition while adding it to implementation .h or
         embedding .c file was more appropriate for others.  This step added
         inclusions to around 150 files.
      3. The script was run again and the output was compared to the edits
         from #2 to make sure no file was left behind.
      4. Several build tests were done and a couple of problems were fixed.
         e.g. lib/decompress_*.c used malloc/free() wrappers around slab
         APIs requiring slab.h to be added manually.
      5. The script was run on all .h files but without automatically
         editing them as sprinkling gfp.h and slab.h inclusions around .h
         files could easily lead to inclusion dependency hell.  Most gfp.h
         inclusion directives were ignored as stuff from gfp.h was usually
         wildly available and often used in preprocessor macros.  Each
         slab.h inclusion directive was examined and added manually as
      6. percpu.h was updated not to include slab.h.
      7. Build test were done on the following configurations and failures
         were fixed.  CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL was turned off for all tests (as my
         distributed build env didn't work with gcov compiles) and a few
         more options had to be turned off depending on archs to make things
         build (like ipr on powerpc/64 which failed due to missing writeq).
         * x86 and x86_64 UP and SMP allmodconfig and a custom test config.
         * powerpc and powerpc64 SMP allmodconfig
         * sparc and sparc64 SMP allmodconfig
         * ia64 SMP allmodconfig
         * s390 SMP allmodconfig
         * alpha SMP allmodconfig
         * um on x86_64 SMP allmodconfig
      8. percpu.h modifications were reverted so that it could be applied as
         a separate patch and serve as bisection point.
      Given the fact that I had only a couple of failures from tests on step
      6, I'm fairly confident about the coverage of this conversion patch.
      If there is a breakage, it's likely to be something in one of the arch
      headers which should be easily discoverable easily on most builds of
      the specific arch.

      llc: replace the socket list with a local address based hash · 52d58aef
      Octavian Purdila authored
      For the cases where a lot of interfaces are used in conjunction with a
      lot of LLC sockets bound to the same SAP, the iteration of the socket
      list becomes prohibitively expensive.
      Replacing the list with a a local address based hash significantly
      improves the bind and listener lookup operations as well as the
      datagram delivery.
      Connected sockets delivery is also improved, but this patch does not
      address the case where we have lots of sockets with the same local
      address connected to different remote addresses.
      In order to keep the socket sanity checks alive and fast a socket
      counter was added to the SAP structure.

      llc: use a device based hash table to speed up multicast delivery · 6d2e3ea2
      Octavian Purdila authored
      This patch adds a per SAP device based hash table to solve the
      multicast delivery scalability issue when we have large number of
      interfaces and a large number of sockets bound to the same SAP.

      llc: convert the socket list to RCU locking · b76f5a84
      Octavian Purdila authored
      For the reclamation phase we use the SLAB_DESTROY_BY_RCU mechanism,
      which require some extra checks in the lookup code:
      a) If the current socket was released, reallocated & inserted in
      another list it will short circuit the iteration for the current list,
      thus we need to restart the lookup.
      b) If the current socket was released, reallocated & inserted in the
      same list we just need to recheck it matches the look-up criteria and
      if not we can skip to the next element.
      In this case there is no need to restart the lookup, since sockets are
      inserted at the start of the list and the worst that will happen is
      that we will iterate throught some of the list elements more then
      Note that the /proc and multicast delivery was not yet converted to
      RCU, it still uses spinlocks for protection.

      [NET]: Make socket creation namespace safe. · 1b8d7ae4
      Eric W. Biederman authored
      This patch passes in the namespace a new socket should be created in
      and has the socket code do the appropriate reference counting.  By
      virtue of this all socket create methods are touched.  In addition
      the socket create methods are modified so that they will fail if
      you attempt to create a socket in a non-default network namespace.
      Failing if we attempt to create a socket outside of the default
      network namespace ensures that as we incrementally make the network stack
      network namespace aware we will not export functionality that someone
      has not audited and made certain is network namespace safe.
      Allowing us to partially enable network namespaces before all of the
      exotic protocols are supported.
      Any protocol layers I have missed will fail to compile because I now
      pass an extra parameter into the socket creation code.

      Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
      even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
      archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
      3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
      git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
      infrastructure for it.
      Let it rip!
