2012-03-15[PATCH v3] ipc: provide generic compat versions of IPC syscallsChris Metcalf1-6/+64
When using the "compat" APIs, architectures will generally want to be able to make direct syscalls to msgsnd(), shmctl(), etc., and in the kernel we would want them to be handled directly by compat_sys_xxx() functions, as is true for other compat syscalls. However, for historical reasons, several of the existing compat IPC syscalls do not do this. semctl() expects a pointer to the fourth argument, instead of the fourth argument itself. msgsnd(), msgrcv() and shmat() expect arguments in different order. This change adds an ARCH_WANT_OLD_COMPAT_IPC config option that can be set to preserve this behavior for ports that use it (x86, sparc, powerpc, s390, and mips). No actual semantics are changed for those architectures, and there is only a minimal amount of code refactoring in ipc/compat.c. Newer architectures like tile (and perhaps future architectures such as arm64 and unicore64) should not select this option, and thus can avoid having any IPC-specific code at all in their architecture-specific compat layer. In the same vein, if this option is not selected, IPC_64 mode is assumed, since that's what the <asm-generic> headers expect. The workaround code in "tile" for msgsnd() and msgrcv() is removed with this change; it also fixes the bug that shmat() and semctl() were not being properly handled.

2012-01-23SHM_UNLOCK: fix Unevictable pages stranded after swapHugh Dickins1-1/+1
Commit cc39c6a9bbde ("mm: account skipped entries to avoid looping in find_get_pages") correctly fixed an infinite loop; but left a problem that find_get_pages() on shmem would return 0 (appearing to callers to mean end of tree) when it meets a run of nr_pages swap entries. The only uses of find_get_pages() on shmem are via pagevec_lookup(), called from invalidate_mapping_pages(), and from shmctl SHM_UNLOCK's scan_mapping_unevictable_pages(). The first is already commented, and not worth worrying about; but the second can leave pages on the Unevictable list after an unusual sequence of swapping and locking. Fix that by using shmem_find_get_pages_and_swap() (then ignoring the swap) instead of pagevec_lookup(). But I don't want to contaminate vmscan.c with shmem internals, nor shmem.c with LRU locking. So move scan_mapping_unevictable_pages() into shmem.c, renaming it shmem_unlock_mapping(); and rename check_move_unevictable_page() to check_move_unevictable_pages(), looping down an array of pages, oftentimes under the same lock. Leave out the "rotate unevictable list" block: that's a leftover from when this was used for /proc/sys/vm/scan_unevictable_pages, whose flawed handling involved looking at pages at tail of LRU. Was there significance to the sequence first ClearPageUnevictable, then test page_evictable, then SetPageUnevictable here? I think not, we're under LRU lock, and have no barriers between those.

2012-01-23SHM_UNLOCK: fix long unpreemptible sectionHugh Dickins1-15/+22
scan_mapping_unevictable_pages() is used to make SysV SHM_LOCKed pages evictable again once the shared memory is unlocked. It does this with pagevec_lookup()s across the whole object (which might occupy most of memory), and takes 300ms to unlock 7GB here. A cond_resched() every PAGEVEC_SIZE pages would be good. However, KOSAKI-san points out that this is called under shmem.c's info->lock, and it's also under shm.c's shm_lock(), both spinlocks. There is no strong reason for that: we need to take these pages off the unevictable list soonish, but those locks are not required for it. So move the call to scan_mapping_unevictable_pages() from shmem.c's unlock handling up to shm.c's unlock handling. Remove the recently added barrier, not needed now we have spin_unlock() before the scan. Use get_file(), with subsequent fput(), to make sure we have a reference to mapping throughout scan_mapping_unevictable_pages(): that's something that was previously guaranteed by the shm_lock(). Remove shmctl's lru_add_drain_all(): we don't fault in pages at SHM_LOCK time, and we lazily discover them to be Unevictable later, so it serves no purpose for SHM_LOCK; and serves no purpose for SHM_UNLOCK, since pages still on pagevec are not marked Unevictable. The original code avoided redundant rescans by checking VM_LOCKED flag at its level: now avoid them by checking shp's SHM_LOCKED. The original code called scan_mapping_unevictable_pages() on a locked area at shm_destroy() time: perhaps we once had accounting cross-checks which required that, but not now, so skip the overhead and just let inode eviction deal with them. Put check_move_unevictable_page() and scan_mapping_unevictable_pages() under CONFIG_SHMEM (with stub for the TINY case when ramfs is used), more as comment than to save space; comment them used for SHM_UNLOCK.

2012-01-11user namespace: make signal.c respect user namespacesSerge E. Hallyn1-1/+6
ipc/mqueue.c: for __SI_MESQ, convert the uid being sent to recipient's user namespace. (new, thanks Oleg) __send_signal: convert current's uid to the recipient's user namespace for any siginfo which is not SI_FROMKERNEL (patch from Oleg, thanks again :) do_notify_parent and do_notify_parent_cldstop: map task's uid to parent's user namespace ptrace_signal maps parent's uid into current's user namespace before including in signal to current. IIUC Oleg has argued that this shouldn't matter as the debugger will play with it, but it seems like not converting the value currently being set is misleading. Changelog: Sep 20: Inspired by Oleg's suggestion, define map_cred_ns() helper to simplify callers and help make clear what we are translating (which uid into which namespace). Passing the target task would make callers even easier to read, but we pass in user_ns because current_user_ns() != task_cred_xxx(current, user_ns). Sep 20: As recommended by Oleg, also put task_pid_vnr() under rcu_read_lock in ptrace_signal(). Sep 23: In send_signal(), detect when (user) signal is coming from an ancestor or unrelated user namespace. Pass that on to __send_signal, which sets si_uid to 0 or overflowuid if needed. Oct 12: Base on Oleg's fixup_uid() patch. On top of that, handle all SI_FROMKERNEL cases at callers, because we can't assume sender is current in those cases.

sys_semtimedop() may return -EIDRM although the semaphore operation completed successfully: thread 1: thread 2: semtimedop(), sleeps semop(): * acquires sem_lock() semtimedop() woken up due to timeout sem_lock() loops * notices that thread 2 could be completed. * performs the operations that thread 2 is sleeping on. * marks the semaphore operation as IN_WAKEUP * drops sem_lock(), does wakeup, sets return code to 0 * thread delayed due to interrupt, whatever * returns to user space * thread still delayed semctl(IPC_RMID) * acquires sem_lock() * ipc_rmid(), ipcp->deleted=1 * drops sem_lock() * thread finally continues - but seem_lock() now fails due to ipcp->deleted == 1 * returns -EIDRM instead of 0 The fix is trivial: Always use the return code in queue.status. In real world, the race probably doesn't matter: If the semaphore array is destroyed, the app is probably not interested if the last operation succeeded or was already cancelled.

This isn't really critical any more, since other patches (commit 298507d4d2cf: "shm: optimize exit_shm()") have caused us to not actually need to touch the rw_mutex unless there are actual shm segments associated with the namespace, but we really should do tne shm_init_ns() earlier than we do now.

2011-07-30shm: optimize locking and ipc_namespace gettingVasiliy Kulikov1-33/+28
shm_lock() does a lookup of shm segment in shm_ids(ns).ipcs_idr, which is redundant as we already know shmid_kernel address. An actual lock is also not required for reads until we really want to destroy the segment. exit_shm() and shm_destroy_orphaned() may avoid the loop by checking whether there is at least one segment in current ipc_namespace. The check of nsproxy and ipc_ns against NULL is redundant as exit_shm() is called from do_exit() before the call to exit_notify(), so the dereferencing current->nsproxy->ipc_ns is guaranteed to be safe.

If there are tasks with the same PID values using the same shmem object, the wrong destroy decision could be reached. On shm segment creation store the pointer to the creator task in shmid_kernel->shm_creator field and zero it on task exit. Then use the ->shm_creator insread of shm_cprid in both functions.

2011-07-26ipc: introduce shm_rmid_forced sysctlVasiliy Kulikov2-4/+129
Add support for the shm_rmid_forced sysctl. If set to 1, all shared memory objects in current ipc namespace will be automatically forced to use IPC_RMID. The POSIX way of handling shmem allows one to create shm objects and call shmdt(), leaving shm object associated with no process, thus consuming memory not counted via rlimits. With shm_rmid_forced=1 the shared memory object is counted at least for one process, so OOM killer may effectively kill the fat process holding the shared memory. It obviously breaks POSIX - some programs relying on the feature would stop working. So set shm_rmid_forced=1 only if you're sure nobody uses "orphaned" memory. Use shm_rmid_forced=0 by default for compatability reasons. The feature was previously impemented in -ow as a configure option.

This will cause crashes, because wake_up_sem_queue_do() will read from a stale pointer. The fix is simple: Regardless of anything, always call get_queue_result().

2011-03-24userns: user namespaces: convert several capable() callsSerge E. Hallyn6-29/+42
CAP_IPC_OWNER and CAP_IPC_LOCK can be checked against current_user_ns(), because the resource comes from current's own ipc namespace. setuid/setgid are to uids in own namespace, so again checks can be against current_user_ns(). Changelog: Jan 11: Use task_ns_capable() in place of sched_capable(). Jan 11: Use nsown_capable() as suggested by Bastian Blank. Jan 11: Clarify (hopefully) some logic in futex and sched.c Feb 15: use ns_capable for ipc, not nsown_capable Feb 23: let copy_ipcs handle setting ipc_ns->user_ns Feb 23: pass ns down rather than taking it from current [ coding-style fixes] Signed-off-by: Serge E.

2011-01-07fs: icache RCU free inodesNick Piggin1-1/+8
RCU free the struct inode. This will allow: - Subsequent store-free path walking patch. The inode must be consulted for permissions when walking, so an RCU inode reference is a must. - sb_inode_list_lock to be moved inside i_lock because sb list walkers who want to take i_lock no longer need to take sb_inode_list_lock to walk the list in the first place. This will simplify and optimize locking. - Could remove some nested trylock loops in dcache code - Could potentially simplify things a bit in VM land. Do not need to take the page lock to follow page->mapping. The downsides of this is the performance cost of using RCU. In a simple creat/unlink microbenchmark, performance drops by about 10% due to inability to reuse cache-hot slab objects. As iterations increase and RCU freeing starts kicking over, this increases to about 20%. In cases where inode lifetimes are longer (ie. many inodes may be allocated during the average life span of a single inode), a lot of this cache reuse is not applicable, so the regression caused by this patch is smaller. The cache-hot regression could largely be avoided by using SLAB_DESTROY_BY_RCU, however this adds some complexity to list walking and store-free path walking, so I prefer to implement this at a later date, if it is shown to be a win in real situations. I haven't found a regression in any non-micro benchmark so I doubt it will be a problem. Signed-off-by: Nick Piggin <>

2010-10-28ipc/shm.c: add RSS and swap size information to /proc/sysvipc/shmHelge Deller1-21/+42
The kernel currently provides no functionality to analyze the RSS and swap space usage of each individual sysvipc shared memory segment. This patch adds this info for each existing shm segment by extending the output of /proc/sysvipc/shm by two columns for RSS and swap. Since shmctl(SHM_INFO) already provides a similiar calculation (it currently sums up all RSS/swap info for all segments), I did split out a static function which is now used by the /proc/sysvipc/shm output and shmctl(SHM_INFO). SAP products (esp. the SAP Netweaver ABAP Kernel) uses lots of big shared memory segments (we often have Linux systems with >= 16GB shm usage). Sometimes we get customer reports about "slow" system responses and while looking into their configurations we often find massive swapping activity on the system. With this patch it's now easy to see from the command line if and which shm segments gets swapped out (and how much) and can more easily give recommendations for system tuning. Without the patch it's currently not possible to do such shm analysis at all. Also... Add some spaces in front of the "size" field for 64bit kernels to get the columns correct if you cat the contents of the file. In sysvipc_shm_proc_show() the kernel prints the size value in "SPEC_SIZE" format, which is defined like this: #if BITS_PER_LONG <= 32 #define SIZE_SPEC "%10lu" #else #define SIZE_SPEC "%21lu" #endif So, if the header is not adjusted, the columns are not correctly aligned. I actually tested this on 32- and 64-bit and it seems correct now.
