      blkcg: move blkio_group_conf->weight to cfq · 3381cb8d
      Tejun Heo authored
      blkio_group_conf->weight is owned by cfq and has no reason to be
      defined in blkcg core.  Replace it with cfq_group->dev_weight and let
      conf setting functions directly set it.  If dev_weight is zero, the
      cfqg doesn't have device specific weight configured.
      Also, rename BLKIO_WEIGHT_* constants to CFQ_WEIGHT_* and rename
      blkio_cgroup->weight to blkio_cgroup->cfq_weight.  We eventually want
      per-policy storage in blkio_cgroup but just mark the ownership of the
      field for now.

      blkcg: cfq doesn't need per-cpu dispatch stats · 41b38b6d
      Tejun Heo authored
      blkio_group_stats_cpu is used to count dispatch stats using per-cpu
      counters.  This is used by both blk-throtl and cfq-iosched but the
      sharing is rather silly.
      * cfq-iosched doesn't need per-cpu dispatch stats.  cfq always updates
        those stats while holding queue_lock.
      * blk-throtl needs per-cpu dispatch stats but only service_bytes and
        serviced.  It doesn't make use of sectors.
      This patch makes cfq add and use global stats for service_bytes,
      serviced and sectors, removes per-cpu sectors counter and moves
      per-cpu stat printing code to blk-throttle.c.

      blkcg: move statistics update code to policies · 629ed0b1
      Tejun Heo authored
      As with conf/stats file handling code, there's no reason for stat
      update code to live in blkcg core with policies calling into update
      them.  The current organization is both inflexible and complex.
      This patch moves stat update code to specific policies.  All
      blkiocg_update_*_stats() functions which deal with BLKIO_POLICY_PROP
      stats are collapsed into their cfq_blkiocg_update_*_stats()
      counterparts.  blkiocg_update_dispatch_stats() is used by both
      policies and duplicated as throtl_update_dispatch_stats() and
      cfq_blkiocg_update_dispatch_stats().  This will be cleaned up later.

      blkcg: move conf/stat file handling code to policies · 60c2bc2d
      Tejun Heo authored
      blkcg conf/stat handling is convoluted in that details which belong to
      specific policy implementations are all out in blkcg core and then
      policies hook into core layer to access and manipulate confs and
      stats.  This sadly achieves both inflexibility (confs/stats can't be
      modified without messing with blkcg core) and complexity (all the
      call-ins and call-backs).
      The previous patches restructured conf and stat handling code such
      that they can be separated out.  This patch relocates the file
      handling part.  All conf/stat file handling code which belongs to
      BLKIO_POLICY_PROP is moved to cfq-iosched.c and all
      BKLIO_POLICY_THROTL code to blk-throtl.c.
      The move is verbatim except for blkio_update_group_{weight|bps|iops}()
      callbacks which relays conf changes to policies.  The configuration
      settings are handled in policies themselves so the relaying isn't
      necessary.  Conf setting functions are modified to directly call
      per-policy update functions and the relaying mechanism is dropped.

      blkcg: restructure blkio_group configruation setting · 3a8b31d3
      Tejun Heo authored
      As part of userland interface restructuring, this patch updates
      per-blkio_group configuration setting.  Instead of funneling
      everything through a master function which has hard-coded cases for
      each config file it may handle, the common part is factored into
      blkg_conf_prep() and blkg_conf_finish() and different configuration
      setters are implemented using the helpers.
      While this doesn't result in immediate LOC reduction, this enables
      further cleanups and more modular implementation.

      Similarly to the previous stat restructuring, this patch restructures
      conf printing code such that,
      * Conf printing uses the same helpers as stat.
      * Printing function doesn't require hardcoded switching on the config
        being printed.  Note that this isn't complete yet for throttle

      Note that blkio_group_conf.iops[2] is changed to u64 so that they can
      be manipulated with the same functions.  This is transitional and will
      go away later.

      blkcg: introduce blkg_stat and blkg_rwstat · edcb0722
      Tejun Heo authored
      blkcg uses u64_stats_sync to avoid reading wrong u64 statistic values
      on 32bit archs and some stat counters have subtypes to distinguish
      read/writes and sync/async IOs.  The stat code paths are confusing and
      involve a lot of going back and forth between blkcg core and specific
      policy implementations, and synchronization and subtype handling are
      open coded in blkcg core.
      This patch introduces struct blkg_stat and blkg_rwstat which, with
      accompanying operations, encapsulate stat updating and accessing with
      proper synchronization.
      blkg_stat is simple u64 counter with 64bit read-access protection.
      blkg_rwstat is the one with rw and [a]sync subcounters and takes @rw
      flags to distinguish IO subtypes (%REQ_WRITE and %REQ_SYNC) and
      replaces stat_sub_type indexed arrays.
      All counters in blkio_group_stats and blkio_group_stats_cpu are
      replaced with either blkg_stat or blkg_rwstat along with all users.
      This does add one u64_stats_sync per counter and increase stats_sync
      operations but they're empty/noops on 64bit archs and blkcg doesn't
      have too many counters, especially with DEBUG_BLK_CGROUP off.
      While the currently resulting code isn't necessarily simpler at the
      moment, this will enable further clean up of blkcg stats code.
      - blkg_stat_add() replaces blkio_add_stat() and
        blkio_check_and_dec_stat().  Note that BUG_ON() on underflow in the
        latter function no longer exists.  It's *way* better to have
        underflowed stat counters than oopsing.
      - blkio_group_stats->dequeue is now a proper u64 stat counter instead
        of ulong.
      - reset_stats() updated to clear each stat counters individually and
        BLKG_STATS_DEBUG_CLEAR_{START|SIZE} are removed.
      - Some functions reconstruct rw flags from direction and sync
        booleans.  This will be removed by future patches.

      cgroup: make css->refcnt clearing on cgroup removal optional · 48ddbe19
      Tejun Heo authored
      Currently, cgroup removal tries to drain all css references.  If there
      are active css references, the removal logic waits and retries
      ->pre_detroy() until either all refs drop to zero or removal is
      This semantics is unusual and adds non-trivial complexity to cgroup
      core and IMHO is fundamentally misguided in that it couples internal
      implementation details (references to internal data structure) with
      externally visible operation (rmdir).  To userland, this is a behavior
      peculiarity which is unnecessary and difficult to expect (css refs is
      otherwise invisible from userland), and, to policy implementations,
      this is an unnecessary restriction (e.g. blkcg wants to hold css refs
      for caching purposes but can't as that becomes visible as rmdir hang).
      Unfortunately, memcg currently depends on ->pre_destroy() retrials and
      cgroup removal vetoing and can't be immmediately switched to the new
      behavior.  This patch introduces the new behavior of not waiting for
      css refs to drain and maintains the old behavior for subsystems which
      have __DEPRECATED_clear_css_refs set.
      Once, memcg is updated, we can drop the code paths for the old
      behavior as proposed in the following patch.  Note that the following
      patch is incorrect in that dput work item is in cgroup and may lose
      some of dputs when multiples css's are released back-to-back, and
      __css_put() triggers check_for_release() when refcnt reaches 0 instead
      of 1; however, it shows what part can be removed.
      Note that, in not-too-distant future, cgroup core will start emitting
      warning messages for subsys which require the old behavior, so please
      get moving.

      cgroup: use negative bias on css->refcnt to block css_tryget() · 28b4c27b
      Tejun Heo authored
      When a cgroup is about to be removed, cgroup_clear_css_refs() is
      called to check and ensure that there are no active css references.
      This is currently achieved by dropping the refcnt to zero iff it has
      only the base ref.  If all css refs could be dropped to zero, ref
      clearing is successful and CSS_REMOVED is set on all css.  If not, the
      base ref is restored.  While css ref is zero w/o CSS_REMOVED set, any
      css_tryget() attempt on it busy loops so that they are atomic
      w.r.t. the whole css ref clearing.
      This does work but dropping and re-instating the base ref is somewhat
      hairy and makes it difficult to add more logic to the put path as
      there are two of them - the regular css_put() and the reversible base
      ref clearing.
      This patch updates css ref clearing such that blocking new
      css_tryget() and putting the base ref are separate operations.
      CSS_DEACT_BIAS, defined as INT_MIN, is added to css->refcnt and
      css_tryget() busy loops while refcnt is negative.  After all css refs
      are deactivated, if they were all one, ref clearing succeeded and
      CSS_REMOVED is set and the base ref is put using the regular
      css_put(); otherwise, CSS_DEACT_BIAS is subtracted from the refcnts
      and the original postive values are restored.
      css_refcnt() accessor which always returns the unbiased positive
      reference counts is added and used to simplify refcnt usages.  While
      at it, relocate and reformat comments in cgroup_has_css_refs().
      This separates css->refcnt deactivation and putting the base ref,
      which enables the next patch to make ref clearing optional.

      cgroup: introduce struct cfent · 05ef1d7c
      Tejun Heo authored
      This patch adds cfent (cgroup file entry) which is the association
      between a cgroup and a file.  This is in-cgroup representation of
      files under a cgroup directory.  This simplifies walking walking
      cgroup files and thus cgroup_clear_directory(), which is now
      implemented in two parts - cgroup_rm_file() and a loop around it.
      cgroup_rm_file() will be used to implement cftype removal and cfent is
      scheduled to serve cgroup specific per-file data (e.g. for sysfs-like
      "sever" semantics).
      v2: - cfe was freed from cgroup_rm_file() which led to use-after-free
            if the file had openers at the time of removal.  Moved to
          - cgroup_clear_directory() triggered WARN_ON_ONCE() if d_subdirs
            wasn't empty after removing all files.  This triggered
            spuriously if some files were open during directory clearing.
      v3: - In cgroup_diput(), WARN_ONCE(!list_empty(&cfe->node)) could be
            spuriously triggered for root cgroups because they don't go
            through cgroup_clear_directory() on unmount.  Don't trigger WARN
            for root cgroups.

      memcg: always create memsw files if CONFIG_CGROUP_MEM_RES_CTLR_SWAP · af36f906
      Tejun Heo authored
      Instead of conditioning creation of memsw files on do_swap_account,
      always create the files if compiled-in and fail read/write attempts
      with -EOPNOTSUPP if !do_swap_account.
      This is suggested by KAMEZAWA to simplify memcg file creation so that
      it can use cgroup->subsys_cftypes.

      cgroup: convert all non-memcg controllers to the new cftype interface · 4baf6e33
      Tejun Heo authored
      Convert debug, freezer, cpuset, cpu_cgroup, cpuacct, net_prio, blkio,
      net_cls and device controllers to use the new cftype based interface.
      Termination entry is added to cftype arrays and populate callbacks are
      replaced with cgroup_subsys->base_cftypes initializations.
      This is functionally identical transformation.  There shouldn't be any
      visible behavior change.
      memcg is rather special and will be converted separately.

      cgroup: relocate cftype and cgroup_subsys definitions in controllers · 676f7c8f
      Tejun Heo authored
      blk-cgroup, netprio_cgroup, cls_cgroup and tcp_memcontrol
      unnecessarily define cftype array and cgroup_subsys structures at the
      top of the file, which is unconventional and necessiates forward
      declaration of methods.
      This patch relocates those below the definitions of the methods and
      removes the forward declarations.  Note that forward declaration of
      tcp_files[] is added in tcp_memcontrol.c for tcp_init_cgroup().  This
      will be removed soon by another patch.
      This patch doesn't introduce any functional change.

      cgroup: implement cgroup_add_cftypes() and friends · 8e3f6541
      Tejun Heo authored
      Currently, cgroup directories are populated by subsys->populate()
      callback explicitly creating files on each cgroup creation.  This
      level of flexibility isn't needed or desirable.  It provides largely
      unused flexibility which call for abuses while severely limiting what
      the core layer can do through the lack of structure and conventions.
      Per each cgroup file type, the only distinction that cgroup users is
      making is whether a cgroup is root or not, which can easily be
      expressed with flags.
      This patch introduces cgroup_add_cftypes().  These deal with cftypes
      instead of individual files - controllers indicate that certain types
      of files exist for certain subsystem.  Newly added CFTYPE_*_ON_ROOT
      flags indicate whether a cftype should be excluded or created only on
      the root cgroup.
      cgroup_add_cftypes() can be called any time whether the target
      subsystem is currently attached or not.  cgroup core will create files
      on the existing cgroups as necessary.
      Also, cgroup_subsys->base_cftypes is added to ease registration of the
      base files for the subsystem.  If non-NULL on subsys init, the cftypes
      pointed to by ->base_cftypes are automatically registered on subsys
      init / load.
      Further patches will convert the existing users and remove the file
      based interface.  Note that this interface allows dynamic addition of
      files to an active controller.  This will be used for sub-controller
      modularity and unified hierarchy in the longer term.
      This patch implements the new mechanism but doesn't apply it to any
      v2: replaced DECLARE_CGROUP_CFTYPES[_COND]() with
          cgroup_subsys->base_cftypes, which works better for cgroup_subsys
          which is loaded as module.

      Pull virtio S3 support patches from Amit Shah:
       "Turns out S3 is not different from S4 for virtio devices: the device
        is assumed to be reset, so the host and guest state are to be assumed
        to be out of sync upon resume.  We handle the S4 case with exactly the
        same scenario, so just point the suspend/resume routines to the
        freeze/restore ones.
        Once that is done, we also use the PM API's macro to initialise the
        sleep functions.
        A couple of cleanups are included: there's no need for special thaw
        processing in the balloon driver, so that's addressed in patches 1 and
        Testing: both S3 and S4 support have been tested using these patches
        using a similar method used earlier during S4 patch development: a
        guest is started with virtio-blk as the only disk, a virtio network
        card, a virtio-serial port and a virtio balloon device.  Ping from
        guest to host, dd /dev/zero to a file on the disk, and IO from the
        host on the virtio-serial port, all at once, while exercising S4 and
        S3 (separately) were tested.  They all continue to work fine after
        resume.  virtio balloon values too were tested by inflating and
        deflating the balloon."

      Pull perf updates and fixes from Ingo Molnar:
       "It's mostly fixes, but there's also two late items:
         - preliminary GTK GUI support for perf report
         - PMU raw event format descriptors in sysfs, to be parsed by tooling
        The raw event format in sysfs is a new ABI.  For example for the 'CPU'
        PMU we have:
          aldebaran:~> ll /sys/bus/event_source/devices/cpu/format/*
          -r--r--r--. 1 root root 4096 Mar 31 10:29 /sys/bus/event_source/devices/cpu/format/any
          -r--r--r--. 1 root root 4096 Mar 31 10:29 /sys/bus/event_source/devices/cpu/format/cmask
          -r--r--r--. 1 root root 4096 Mar 31 10:29 /sys/bus/event_source/devices/cpu/format/edge
          -r--r--r--. 1 root root 4096 Mar 31 10:29 /sys/bus/event_source/devices/cpu/format/event
          -r--r--r--. 1 root root 4096 Mar 31 10:29 /sys/bus/event_source/devices/cpu/format/inv
          -r--r--r--. 1 root root 4096 Mar 31 10:29 /sys/bus/event_source/devices/cpu/format/offcore_rsp
          -r--r--r--. 1 root root 4096 Mar 31 10:29 /sys/bus/event_source/devices/cpu/format/pc
          -r--r--r--. 1 root root 4096 Mar 31 10:29 /sys/bus/event_source/devices/cpu/format/umask
        those lists of fields contain a specific format:
          aldebaran:~> cat /sys/bus/event_source/devices/cpu/format/offcore_rsp
        So, those who wish to specify raw events can now use the following
        event format:
          -e cpu/cmask=1,event=2,umask=3
        Most people will not want to specify any events (let alone raw
        events), they'll just use whatever default event the tools use.
        But for more obscure PMU events that have no cross-architecture
        generic events the above syntax is more usable and a bit more
        structured than specifying hex numbers."
