      mm: fix migratetype bug which slowed swapping · a7016235
      Hugh Dickins authored
      After memory pressure has forced it to dip into the reserves, 2.6.32's
      5f8dcc21 "page-allocator: split per-cpu
      list into one-list-per-migrate-type" has been returning MIGRATE_RESERVE
      pages to the MIGRATE_MOVABLE free_list: in some sense depleting reserves.
      Fix that in the most straightforward way (which, considering the overheads
      of alternative approaches, is Mel's preference): the right migratetype is
      already in page_private(page), but free_pcppages_bulk() wasn't using it.
      How did this bug show up?  As a 20% slowdown in my tmpfs loop kbuild
      swapping tests, on PowerMac G5 with SLUB allocator.  Bisecting to that
      commit was easy, but explaining the magnitude of the slowdown not easy.
      The same effect appears, but much less markedly, with SLAB, and even
      less markedly on other machines (the PowerMac divides into fewer zones
      than x86, I think that may be a factor).  We guess that lumpy reclaim
      of short-lived high-order pages is implicated in some way, and probably
      this bug has been tickling a poor decision somewhere in page reclaim.
      But instrumentation hasn't told me much, I've run out of time and
      imagination to determine exactly what's going on, and shouldn't hold up
      the fix any longer: it's valid, and might even fix other misbehaviours.

      sparc: TIF_ABI_PENDING bit removal · 94673e96
      David Miller authored
      Here are the sparc bits to remove TIF_ABI_PENDING now that
      set_personality() is called at the appropriate place in exec.

      x86: get rid of the insane TIF_ABI_PENDING bit · 05d43ed8
      H. Peter Anvin authored
      Now that the previous commit made it possible to do the personality
      setting at the point of no return, we do just that for ELF binaries.
      And suddenly all the reasons for that insane TIF_ABI_PENDING bit go
      away, and we can just make SET_PERSONALITY() just do the obvious thing
      for a 32-bit compat process.
      Everything becomes much more straightforward this way.

      Split 'flush_old_exec' into two functions · 221af7f8
      Linus Torvalds authored
      'flush_old_exec()' is the point of no return when doing an execve(), and
      it is pretty badly misnamed.  It doesn't just flush the old executable
      environment, it also starts up the new one.
      Which is very inconvenient for things like setting up the new
      personality, because we want the new personality to affect the starting
      of the new environment, but at the same time we do _not_ want the new
      personality to take effect if flushing the old one fails.
      As a result, the x86-64 '32-bit' personality is actually done using this
      insane "I'm going to change the ABI, but I haven't done it yet" bit
      (TIF_ABI_PENDING), with SET_PERSONALITY() not actually setting the
      personality, but just the "pending" bit, so that "flush_thread()" can do
      the actual personality magic.
      This patch in no way changes any of that insanity, but it does split the
      'flush_old_exec()' function up into a preparatory part that can fail
      (still called flush_old_exec()), and a new part that will actually set
      up the new exec environment (setup_new_exec()).  All callers are changed
      to trivially comply with the new world order.
