2014-07-17rtmutex: Plug slow unlock raceThomas Gleixner1-6/+109
commit 27e35715df54cbc4f2d044f681802ae30479e7fb upstream. When the rtmutex fast path is enabled the slow unlock function can create the following situation: spin_lock(foo->m->wait_lock); foo->m->owner = NULL; rt_mutex_lock(foo->m); <-- fast path free = atomic_dec_and_test(foo->refcnt); rt_mutex_unlock(foo->m); <-- fast path if (free) kfree(foo); spin_unlock(foo->m->wait_lock); <--- Use after free. Plug the race by changing the slow unlock to the following scheme: while (!rt_mutex_has_waiters(m)) { /* Clear the waiters bit in m->owner */ clear_rt_mutex_waiters(m); owner = rt_mutex_owner(m); spin_unlock(m->wait_lock); if (cmpxchg(m->owner, owner, 0) == owner) return; spin_lock(m->wait_lock); } So in case of a new waiter incoming while the owner tries the slow path unlock we have two situations: unlock(wait_lock); lock(wait_lock); cmpxchg(p, owner, 0) == owner mark_rt_mutex_waiters(lock); acquire(lock); Or: unlock(wait_lock); lock(wait_lock); mark_rt_mutex_waiters(lock); cmpxchg(p, owner, 0) != owner enqueue_waiter(); unlock(wait_lock); lock(wait_lock); wakeup_next waiter(); unlock(wait_lock); lock(wait_lock); acquire(lock); If the fast path is disabled, then the simple m->owner = NULL; unlock(m->wait_lock); is sufficient as all access to m->owner is serialized via m->wait_lock; Also document and clarify the wakeup_next_waiter function as suggested by Oleg Nesterov.

2014-07-17rtmutex: Handle deadlock detection smarterThomas Gleixner1-5/+28
commit 3d5c9340d1949733eb37616abd15db36aef9a57c upstream. Even in the case when deadlock detection is not requested by the caller, we can detect deadlocks. Right now the code stops the lock chain walk and keeps the waiter enqueued, even on itself. Silly not to yell when such a scenario is detected and to keep the waiter enqueued. Return -EDEADLK unconditionally and handle it at the call sites. The futex calls return -EDEADLK. The non futex ones dequeue the waiter, throw a warning and put the task into a schedule loop. Tagged for stable as it makes the code more robust.

2014-07-17rtmutex: Detect changes in the pi lock chainThomas Gleixner1-15/+59
commit 82084984383babe728e6e3c9a8e5c46278091315 upstream. When we walk the lock chain, we drop all locks after each step. So the lock chain can change under us before we reacquire the locks. That's harmless in principle as we just follow the wrong lock path. But it can lead to a false positive in the dead lock detection logic: T0 holds L0 T0 blocks on L1 held by T1 T1 blocks on L2 held by T2 T2 blocks on L3 held by T3 T4 blocks on L4 held by T4 Now we walk the chain lock T1 -> lock L2 -> adjust L2 -> unlock T1 -> lock T2 -> adjust T2 -> drop locks T2 times out and blocks on L0 Now we continue: lock T2 -> lock L0 -> deadlock detected, but it's not a deadlock at all. Brad tried to work around that in the deadlock detection logic itself, but the more I looked at it the less I liked it, because it's crystal ball magic after the fact. We actually can detect a chain change very simple: lock T1 -> lock L2 -> adjust L2 -> unlock T1 -> lock T2 -> adjust T2 -> next_lock = T2->pi_blocked_on->lock; drop locks T2 times out and blocks on L0 Now we continue: lock T2 -> if (next_lock != T2->pi_blocked_on->lock) return; So if we detect that T2 is now blocked on a different lock we stop the chain walk. That's also correct in the following scenario: lock T1 -> lock L2 -> adjust L2 -> unlock T1 -> lock T2 -> adjust T2 -> next_lock = T2->pi_blocked_on->lock; drop locks T3 times out and drops L3 T2 acquires L3 and blocks on L4 now Now we continue: lock T2 -> if (next_lock != T2->pi_blocked_on->lock) return; We don't have to follow up the chain at that point, because T2 propagated our priority up to T4 already.

2014-07-17rtmutex: Fix deadlock detector for realThomas Gleixner1-4/+28
commit 397335f004f41e5fcf7a795e94eb3ab83411a17c upstream. The current deadlock detection logic does not work reliably due to the following early exit path: /* * Drop out, when the task has no waiters. Note, * top_waiter can be NULL, when we are in the deboosting * mode! */ if (top_waiter && (!task_has_pi_waiters(task) || top_waiter != task_top_pi_waiter(task))) goto out_unlock_pi; So this not only exits when the task has no waiters, it also exits unconditionally when the current waiter is not the top priority waiter of the task. So in a nested locking scenario, it might abort the lock chain walk and therefor miss a potential deadlock. Simple fix: Continue the chain walk, when deadlock detection is enabled. We also avoid the whole enqueue, if we detect the deadlock right away (A-A). It's an optimization, but also prevents that another waiter who comes in after the detection and before the task has undone the damage observes the situation and detects the deadlock and returns -EDEADLOCK, which is wrong as the other task is not in a deadlock situation.

Unfortunately, the scheduler's runqueue and priority-inheritance locks still must either completely enclose or be completely enclosed by any overlapping RCU read-side critical section.

2011-01-28rtmutex: Simplify PI algorithm and make highest prio task get lockLai Jiangshan1-205/+113
In current rtmutex, the pending owner may be boosted by the tasks in the rtmutex's waitlist when the pending owner is deboosted or a task in the waitlist is boosted. This boosting is unrelated, because the pending owner does not really take the rtmutex. It is not reasonable. Example. time1: A(high prio) onwers the rtmutex. B(mid prio) and C (low prio) in the waitlist. time2 A release the lock, B becomes the pending owner A(or other high prio task) continues to run. B's prio is lower than A, so B is just queued at the runqueue. time3 A or other high prio task sleeps, but we have passed some time The B and C's prio are changed in the period (time2 ~ time3) due to boosting or deboosting. Now C has the priority higher than B. ***Is it reasonable that C has to boost B and help B to get the rtmutex? NO!! I think, it is unrelated/unneed boosting before B really owns the rtmutex. We should give C a chance to beat B and win the rtmutex. This is the motivation of this patch. This patch *ensures* only the top waiter or higher priority task can take the lock. How? 1) we don't dequeue the top waiter when unlock, if the top waiter is changed, the old top waiter will fail and go to sleep again. 2) when requiring lock, it will get the lock when the lock is not taken and: there is no waiter OR higher priority than waiters OR it is top waiter. 3) In any time, the top waiter is changed, the top waiter will be woken up. The algorithm is much simpler than before, no pending owner, no boosting for pending owner. Other advantage of this patch: 1) The states of a rtmutex are reduced a half, easier to read the code. 2) the codes become shorter. 3) top waiter is not dequeued until it really take the lock: they will retain FIFO when it is stolen. Not advantage nor disadvantage 1) Even we may wakeup multiple waiters(any time when top waiter changed), we hardly cause "thundering herd", the number of wokenup task is likely 1 or very little. 2) two APIs are changed. rt_mutex_owner() will not return pending owner, it will return NULL when the top waiter is going to take the lock. rt_mutex_next_owner() always return the top waiter. will not return NULL if we have waiters because the top waiter is not dequeued. I have fixed the code that use these APIs. need updated after this patch is accepted 1) Document/* 2) the testcase scripts/rt-tester/t4-l2-pi-deboost.tst Signed-off-by: Lai Jiangshan <laijs@cn.fujitsu.com> LKML-Reference: <4D3012D5.4060709@cn.fujitsu.com> Reviewed-by: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org> Signed-off-by: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org>

2007-06-18Revert "futex_requeue_pi optimization"Thomas Gleixner1-9/+32
This reverts commit d0aa7a70bf03b9de9e995ab272293be1f7937822. It not only introduced user space visible changes to the futex syscall, it is also non-functional and there is no way to fix it proper before the 2.6.22 release. The breakage report ( http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/5/12/17 ) went unanswered, and unfortunately it turned out that the concept is not feasible at all. It violates the rtmutex semantics badly by introducing a virtual owner, which hacks around the coupling of the user-space pi_futex and the kernel internal rt_mutex representation. At the moment the only safe option is to remove it fully as it contains user-space visible changes to broken kernel code, which we do not want to expose in the 2.6.22 release. The patch reverts the original patch mostly 1:1, but contains a couple of trivial manual cleanups which were necessary due to patches, which touched the same area of code later.

2006-09-29[PATCH] clean up and remove some extra spinlocks from rtmutexSteven Rostedt1-26/+25
Oleg brought up some interesting points about grabbing the pi_lock for some protections. In this discussion, I realized that there are some places that the pi_lock is being grabbed when it really wasn't necessary. Also this patch does a little bit of clean up. This patch basically does three things: 1) renames the "boost" variable to "chain_walk". Since it is used in the debugging case when it isn't going to be boosted. It better describes what the test is going to do if it succeeds. 2) moves get_task_struct to just before the unlocking of the wait_lock. This removes duplicate code, and makes it a little easier to read. The owner wont go away while either the pi_lock or the wait_lock are held. 3) removes the pi_locking and owner blocked checking completely from the debugging case. This is because the grabbing the lock and doing the check, then releasing the lock is just so full of races. It's just as good to go ahead and call the pi_chain_walk function, since after releasing the lock the owner can then block anyway, and we would have missed that. For the debug case, we really do want to do the chain walk to test for deadlocks anyway.

Generic lock debugging: - generalized lock debugging framework.

There's no separate 'held mutexes' list anymore - but there's a 'held locks' stack within lockdep, which unifies deadlock detection across all lock classes. (this is independent of the lockdep validation stuff - lockdep first checks whether we are holding a lock already) Here are the current debugging options: CONFIG_DEBUG_MUTEXES=y CONFIG_DEBUG_LOCK_ALLOC=y which do: config DEBUG_MUTEXES bool "Mutex debugging, basic checks" config DEBUG_LOCK_ALLOC bool "Detect incorrect freeing of live mutexes" Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Signed-off-by: Arjan van de Ven <arjan@linux.intel.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2006-06-28[PATCH] rtmutex: Propagate priority settings into PI lock chainsThomas Gleixner1-6/+36
When the priority of a task, which is blocked on a lock, changes we must propagate this change into the PI lock chain. Therefor the chain walk code is changed to get rid of the references to current to avoid false positives in the deadlock detector, as setscheduler might be called by a task which holds the lock on which the task whose priority is changed is blocked. Also add some comments about the get/put_task_struct usage to avoid confusion.
