      include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking implicit slab.h inclusion from percpu.h
      percpu.h is included by sched.h and module.h and thus ends up being
      included when building most .c files.  percpu.h includes slab.h which
      in turn includes gfp.h making everything defined by the two files
      universally available and complicating inclusion dependencies.
      percpu.h -> slab.h dependency is about to be removed.  Prepare for
      this change by updating users of gfp and slab facilities include those
      headers directly instead of assuming availability.  As this conversion
      needs to touch large number of source files, the following script is
      used as the basis of conversion.
      The script does the followings.
      * Scan files for gfp and slab usages and update includes such that
        only the necessary includes are there.  ie. if only gfp is used,
        gfp.h, if slab is used, slab.h.
      * When the script inserts a new include, it looks at the include
        blocks and try to put the new include such that its order conforms
        to its surrounding.  It's put in the include block which contains
        core kernel includes, in the same order that the rest are ordered -
        alphabetical, Christmas tree, rev-Xmas-tree or at the end if there
        doesn't seem to be any matching order.
      * If the script can't find a place to put a new include (mostly
        because the file doesn't have fitting include block), it prints out
        an error message indicating which .h file needs to be added to the
      The conversion was done in the following steps.
      1. The initial automatic conversion of all .c files updated slightly
         over 4000 files, deleting around 700 includes and adding ~480 gfp.h
         and ~3000 slab.h inclusions.  The script emitted errors for ~400
      2. Each error was manually checked.  Some didn't need the inclusion,
         some needed manual addition while adding it to implementation .h or
         embedding .c file was more appropriate for others.  This step added
         inclusions to around 150 files.
      3. The script was run again and the output was compared to the edits
         from #2 to make sure no file was left behind.
      4. Several build tests were done and a couple of problems were fixed.
         e.g. lib/decompress_*.c used malloc/free() wrappers around slab
         APIs requiring slab.h to be added manually.
      5. The script was run on all .h files but without automatically
         editing them as sprinkling gfp.h and slab.h inclusions around .h
         files could easily lead to inclusion dependency hell.  Most gfp.h
         inclusion directives were ignored as stuff from gfp.h was usually
         wildly available and often used in preprocessor macros.  Each
         slab.h inclusion directive was examined and added manually as
      6. percpu.h was updated not to include slab.h.
      7. Build test were done on the following configurations and failures
         were fixed.  CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL was turned off for all tests (as my
         distributed build env didn't work with gcov compiles) and a few
         more options had to be turned off depending on archs to make things
         build (like ipr on powerpc/64 which failed due to missing writeq).
         * x86 and x86_64 UP and SMP allmodconfig and a custom test config.
         * powerpc and powerpc64 SMP allmodconfig
         * sparc and sparc64 SMP allmodconfig
         * ia64 SMP allmodconfig
         * s390 SMP allmodconfig
         * alpha SMP allmodconfig
         * um on x86_64 SMP allmodconfig
      8. percpu.h modifications were reverted so that it could be applied as
         a separate patch and serve as bisection point.
      Given the fact that I had only a couple of failures from tests on step
      6, I'm fairly confident about the coverage of this conversion patch.
      If there is a breakage, it's likely to be something in one of the arch
      headers which should be easily discoverable easily on most builds of
      the specific arch.

      cpumask: introduce new API, without changing anything · 2d3854a3
      Rusty Russell authored
      Impact: introduce new APIs
      We want to deprecate cpumasks on the stack, as we are headed for
      gynormous numbers of CPUs.  Eventually, we want to head towards an
      undefined 'struct cpumask' so they can never be declared on stack.
      1) New cpumask functions which take pointers instead of copies.
         (cpus_* -> cpumask_*)
      2) Several new helpers to reduce requirements for temporary cpumasks
         (cpumask_first_and, cpumask_next_and, cpumask_any_and)
      3) Helpers for declaring cpumasks on or offstack for large NR_CPUS
         (cpumask_var_t, alloc_cpumask_var and free_cpumask_var)
      4) 'struct cpumask' for explicitness and to mark new-style code.
      5) Make iterator functions stop at nr_cpu_ids (a runtime constant),
         not NR_CPUS for time efficiency and for smaller dynamic allocations
         in future.
      6) cpumask_copy() so we can allocate less than a full cpumask eventually
         (for alloc_cpumask_var), and so we can eliminate the 'struct cpumask'
         definition eventually.
      7) work_on_cpu() helper for doing task on a CPU, rather than saving old
         cpumask for current thread and manipulating it.
      8) smp_call_function_many() which is smp_call_function_mask() except
         taking a cpumask pointer.
      Note that this patch simply introduces the new functions and leaves
      the obsolescent ones in place.  This is to simplify the transition

      x86: Add performance variants of cpumask operators · 41df0d61
      Mike Travis authored
        * Increase performance for systems with large count NR_CPUS by limiting
          the range of the cpumask operators that loop over the bits in a cpumask_t
          variable.  This removes a large amount of wasted cpu cycles.
        * Add performance variants of the cpumask operators:
          int cpus_weight_nr(mask)	     Same using nr_cpu_ids instead of NR_CPUS
          int first_cpu_nr(mask)	     Number lowest set bit, or nr_cpu_ids
          int next_cpu_nr(cpu, mask)	     Next cpu past 'cpu', or nr_cpu_ids
          for_each_cpu_mask_nr(cpu, mask)  for-loop cpu over mask using nr_cpu_ids
        * Modify following to use performance variants:
          #define num_online_cpus()	cpus_weight_nr(cpu_online_map)
          #define num_possible_cpus()	cpus_weight_nr(cpu_possible_map)
          #define num_present_cpus()	cpus_weight_nr(cpu_present_map)
          #define for_each_possible_cpu(cpu) for_each_cpu_mask_nr((cpu), ...)
          #define for_each_online_cpu(cpu)   for_each_cpu_mask_nr((cpu), ...)
          #define for_each_present_cpu(cpu)  for_each_cpu_mask_nr((cpu), ...)
        * Comment added to include/linux/cpumask.h:
          Note: The alternate operations with the suffix "_nr" are used
      	  to limit the range of the loop to nr_cpu_ids instead of
      	  NR_CPUS when NR_CPUS > 64 for performance reasons.
      	  If NR_CPUS is <= 64 then most assembler bitmask
      	  operators execute faster with a constant range, so
      	  the operator will continue to use NR_CPUS.
      	  Another consideration is that nr_cpu_ids is initialized
      	  to NR_CPUS and isn't lowered until the possible cpus are
      	  discovered (including any disabled cpus).  So early uses
      	  will span the entire range of NR_CPUS.
          (The net effect is that for systems with 64 or less CPU's there are no
           functional changes.)
      For inclusion into sched-devel/latest tree.

      Safer nr_node_ids and nr_node_ids determination and initial values · 476f3534
      Christoph Lameter authored
      The nr_cpu_ids value is currently only calculated in smp_init.  However, it
      may be needed before (SLUB needs it on kmem_cache_init!) and other kernel
      components may also want to allocate dynamically sized per cpu array before
      smp_init.  So move the determination of possible cpus into sched_init()
      where we already loop over all possible cpus early in boot.
      Also initialize both nr_node_ids and nr_cpu_ids with the highest value they
      could take.  If we have accidental users before these values are determined
      then the current valud of 0 may cause too small per cpu and per node arrays
      to be allocated.  If it is set to the maximum possible then we only waste
      some memory for early boot users.

      [PATCH] highest_possible_node_id() linkage fix · 6220ec78
      Andrew Morton authored
      Qooting Adrian:
      - net/sunrpc/svc.c uses highest_possible_node_id()
      - include/linux/nodemask.h says highest_possible_node_id() is
        out-of-line #if MAX_NUMNODES > 1
      - the out-of-line highest_possible_node_id() is in lib/cpumask.c
      - lib/Makefile: lib-$(CONFIG_SMP) += cpumask.o
      -> highest_possible_node_id() is used in net/sunrpc/svc.c
         CONFIG_NODES_SHIFT defined and > 0
      -> include/linux/numa.h: MAX_NUMNODES > 1
      -> compile error
      The bug is not present on architectures where ARCH_DISCONTIGMEM_ENABLE
      depends on NUMA (but m32r isn't the only affected architecture).
      So move the function into page_alloc.c
