      [PATCH] AVR32: Implement kernel_execve · c5f2420a
      Haavard Skinnemoen authored
      
      
      Move execve() into arch/avr32/kernel/sys_avr32.c, rename it to
      kernel_execve() and return the syscall return value directly without
      setting errno.
      
      This also gets rid of the __KERNEL_SYSCALLS__ stuff from unistd.h and
      expands #ifdef __KERNEL__ to cover everything in unistd.h except the
      __NR_foo definitions.

      [PATCH] remove remaining errno and __KERNEL_SYSCALLS__ references · 135ab6ec
      Arnd Bergmann authored
      
      
      The last in-kernel user of errno is gone, so we should remove the definition
      and everything referring to it.  This also removes the now-unused lib/execve.c
      file that was introduced earlier.
      
      Also remove every trace of __KERNEL_SYSCALLS__ that still remained in the
      kernel.

      [PATCH] sh64: remove the use of kernel syscalls · 821278a7
      Arnd Bergmann authored
      
      
      sh64 is using system call macros to call some functions from the kernel.
      
      The old debug code can simply be removed, since we don't really have that much
      of a need for it anymore, it was mostly something that was handy during the
      initial bringup.  This also brings us closer to something that looks like
      readable code again..
      
      I also added a sane kernel_thread() implementation that gets away from this,
      so that should take care of sh64 at least.

      [PATCH] provide kernel_execve on all architectures · fe74290d
      Arnd Bergmann authored
      
      
      This adds the new kernel_execve function on all architectures that were using
      _syscall3() to implement execve.
      
      The implementation uses code from the _syscall3 macros provided in the
      unistd.h header file.  I don't have cross-compilers for any of these
      architectures, so the patch is untested with the exception of i386.
      
      Most architectures can probably implement this in a nicer way in assembly or
      by combining it with the sys_execve implementation itself, but this should do
      it for now.

      [PATCH] rename the provided execve functions to kernel_execve · 3db03b4a
      Arnd Bergmann authored
      
      
      Some architectures provide an execve function that does not set errno, but
      instead returns the result code directly.  Rename these to kernel_execve to
      get the right semantics there.  Moreover, there is no reasone for any of these
      architectures to still provide __KERNEL_SYSCALLS__ or _syscallN macros, so
      remove these right away.

      [PATCH] introduce kernel_execve · 67608567
      Arnd Bergmann authored
      
      
      The use of execve() in the kernel is dubious, since it relies on the
      __KERNEL_SYSCALLS__ mechanism that stores the result in a global errno
      variable.  As a first step of getting rid of this, change all users to a
      global kernel_execve function that returns a proper error code.
      
      This function is a terrible hack, and a later patch removes it again after the
      kernel syscalls are gone.

      when new nsproxy (new_ns) is created pointers to namespaces (ipc, uts) are
      copied from the old nsproxy.  Later in copy_utsname, copy_ipcs, etc.
      according namespaces are get-ed.  On error path needed namespaces are
      put-ed, so there's no need to put new nsproxy itelf as it woud cause
      putting namespaces for the second time.

      [PATCH] uts: copy nsproxy only when needed · c0b2fc31
      Serge Hallyn authored
      
      
      The nsproxy was being copied in unshare() when anything was being unshared,
      even if it was something not referenced from nsproxy.  This should end up
      in some cases with far more memory usage than necessary.

      This patch defines the uts namespace and some manipulators.
      Adds the uts namespace to task_struct, and initializes a

      It leaves a #define for system_utsname so sysctl will compile.

      Cedric Le Goater authored
      
      
      exit_task_namespaces() has replaced the former exit_namespace().  It
      invalidates task->nsproxy and associated namespaces.  This is an issue for
      the (futur) pid namespace which is required to be valid in exit_notify().
      
      This patch moves exit_task_namespaces() after exit_notify() to keep nsproxy
      valid.

      This moves the mount namespace into the nsproxy.  The mount namespace count
      now refers to the number of nsproxies point to it, rather than the number of
      tasks.  As a result, the unshare_namespace() function in kernel/fork.c no
      longer checks whether it is being shared.

      [PATCH] namespaces: add nsproxy · ab516013
      Serge E. Hallyn authored
      
      
      This patch adds a nsproxy structure to the task struct.  Later patches will
      move the fs namespace pointer into this structure, and introduce a new utsname
      namespace into the nsproxy.
      
      The vserver and openvz functionality, then, would be implemented in large part
      by virtualizing/isolating more and more resources into namespaces, each
      contained in the nsproxy.

      [PATCH] knfsd: allow admin to set nthreads per node · eed2965a
      Greg Banks authored
      
      
      Add /proc/fs/nfsd/pool_threads which allows the sysadmin (or a userspace
      daemon) to read and change the number of nfsd threads in each pool.  The
      format is a list of space-separated integers, one per pool.

      [PATCH] knfsd: make rpc threads pools numa aware · bfd24160
      Greg Banks authored
      
      
      Actually implement multiple pools.  On NUMA machines, allocate a svc_pool per
      NUMA node; on SMP a svc_pool per CPU; otherwise a single global pool.  Enqueue
      sockets on the svc_pool corresponding to the CPU on which the socket bh is run
      (i.e.  the NIC interrupt CPU).  Threads have their cpu mask set to limit them
      to the CPUs in the svc_pool that owns them.
      
      This is the patch that allows an Altix to scale NFS traffic linearly
      beyond 4 CPUs and 4 NICs.
      
      Incorporates changes and feedback from Neil Brown, Trond Myklebust, and
      Christoph Hellwig.

      [PATCH] knfsd: add svc_set_num_threads · a7455442
      Greg Banks authored
      
      
      Currently knfsd keeps its own list of all nfsd threads in nfssvc.c; add a new
      way of managing the list of all threads in a svc_serv.  Add
      svc_create_pooled() to allow creation of a svc_serv whose threads are managed
      by the sunrpc code.  Add svc_set_num_threads() to manage the number of threads
      in a service, either per-pool or globally across the service.

      [PATCH] knfsd: split svc_serv into pools · 3262c816
      Greg Banks authored
      
      
      Split out the list of idle threads and pending sockets from svc_serv into a
      new svc_pool structure, and allocate a fixed number (in this patch, 1) of
      pools per svc_serv.  The new structure contains a lock which takes over
      several of the duties of svc_serv->sv_lock, which is now relegated to
      protecting only sv_tempsocks, sv_permsocks, and sv_tmpcnt in svc_serv.
      
      The point is to move the hottest fields out of svc_serv and into svc_pool,
      allowing a following patch to arrange for a svc_pool per NUMA node or per CPU.
       This is a major step towards making the NFS server NUMA-friendly.

      [PATCH] knfsd: test and set SK_BUSY atomically · c081a0c7
      Greg Banks authored
      
      
      The SK_BUSY bit in svc_sock->sk_flags ensures that we do not attempt to
      enqueue a socket twice.  Currently, setting and clearing the bit is protected
      by svc_serv->sv_lock.  As I intend to reduce the data that the lock protects
      so it's not held when svc_sock_enqueue() tests and sets SK_BUSY, that test and
      set needs to be atomic.
