      perf tools: Fix perf_event.h header usage · d030260a
      Stephane Eranian authored
      
      
      This patch fixes the usage of the perf_event.h header file
      between command modules and the supporting code in util.
      
      It is necessary to ensure that ALL files use the SAME
      perf_event.h header from the kernel source tree.
      
      There were a couple of #include <linux/perf_event.h> mixed
      with #include "../../perf_event.h".
      
      This caused issues on some distros because of mismatch
      in the layout of struct perf_event_attr. That eventually
      led perf stat to segfault.

      x86: Avoid calling arch_trigger_all_cpu_backtrace() at the same time · 554ec063
      Dongdong Deng authored
      
      
      The spin_lock_debug/rcu_cpu_stall detector uses
      trigger_all_cpu_backtrace() to dump cpu backtrace.
      Therefore it is possible that trigger_all_cpu_backtrace()
      could be called at the same time on different CPUs, which
      triggers and 'unknown reason NMI' warning. The following case
      illustrates the problem:
      
            CPU1                    CPU2                     ...   CPU N
                             trigger_all_cpu_backtrace()
                             set "backtrace_mask" to cpu mask
                                     |
      generate NMI interrupts  generate NMI interrupts       ...
          \                          |                               /
           \                         |                              /
      
      The "backtrace_mask" will be cleaned by the first NMI interrupt
      at nmi_watchdog_tick(), then the following NMI interrupts
      generated by other cpus's arch_trigger_all_cpu_backtrace() will
      be taken as unknown reason NMI interrupts.
      
      This patch uses a test_and_set to avoid the problem, and stop
      the arch_trigger_all_cpu_backtrace() from calling to avoid
      dumping a double cpu backtrace info when there is already a
      trigger_all_cpu_backtrace() in progress.

      There are some paths that walk the die_chain with preemption on.
      Make sure we are in an NMI call before we start doing anything.
      
      This was triggered by do_general_protection calling notify_die
      with DIE_GPF.

      sched: Change wait_for_completion_*_timeout() to return a signed long · 6bf41237
      NeilBrown authored
      
      
      wait_for_completion_*_timeout() can return:
      
         0: if the wait timed out
       -ve: if the wait was interrupted
       +ve: if the completion was completed.
      
      As they currently return an 'unsigned long', the last two cases
      are not easily distinguished which can easily result in buggy
      code, as is the case for the recently added
      wait_for_completion_interruptible_timeout() call in
      net/sunrpc/cache.c
      
      So change them both to return 'long'.  As MAX_SCHEDULE_TIMEOUT
      is LONG_MAX, a large +ve return value should never overflow.

      x86: Fix APIC ID sizing bug on larger systems, clean up MAX_APICS confusion · cb2ded37
      Yinghai Lu authored
      
      
      Found one x2apic pre-enabled system, x2apic_mode suddenly get
      corrupted after register some cpus, when compiled
      CONFIG_NR_CPUS=255 instead of 512.
      
      It turns out that generic_processor_info() ==> phyid_set(apicid,
      phys_cpu_present_map) causes the problem.
      
      phys_cpu_present_map is sized by MAX_APICS bits, and pre-enabled
      system some cpus have an apic id > 255.
      
      The variable after phys_cpu_present_map may get corrupted
      silently:
      
       ffffffff828e8420 B phys_cpu_present_map
       ffffffff828e8440 B apic_verbosity
       ffffffff828e8444 B local_apic_timer_c2_ok
       ffffffff828e8448 B disable_apic
       ffffffff828e844c B x2apic_mode
       ffffffff828e8450 B x2apic_disabled
       ffffffff828e8454 B num_processors
       ...
      
      Actually phys_cpu_present_map is referenced via apic id, instead
      index. We should use MAX_LOCAL_APIC instead MAX_APICS.
      
      For 64-bit it will be 32768 in all cases. BSS will increase by 4k bytes
      on 64-bit:
      
      	text		data		bss		dec		filename
      	21696943	4193748		12787712	38678403	vmlinux.before
      	21696943	4193748		12791808	38682499	vmlinux.after
      
      No change on 32bit.
      
      Finally we can remove MAX_APCIS that was rather confusing.
