2013-07-09ipc/sem.c: replace shared sem_otime with per-semaphore valueManfred Spraul1-1/+0
sem_otime contains the time of the last semaphore operation that completed successfully. Every operation updates this value, thus access from multiple cpus can cause thrashing. Therefore the patch replaces the variable with a per-semaphore variable. The per-array sem_otime is only calculated when required. No performance improvement on a single-socket i3 - only important for larger systems.

2013-07-09ipc/sem: separate wait-for-zero and alter tasks into seperate queuesManfred Spraul1-1/+4
Introduce separate queues for operations that do not modify the semaphore values. Advantages: - Simpler logic in check_restart(). - Faster update_queue(): Right now, all wait-for-zero operations are always tested, even if the semaphore value is not 0. - wait-for-zero gets again priority, as in linux <=3.0.9 Signed-off-by: Manfred Spraul <manfred@colorfullife.com> Cc: Rik van Riel <riel@redhat.com> Cc: Davidlohr Bueso <davidlohr.bueso@hp.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

2011-11-02include/linux/sem.h: make sysv_sem empty if SYSVIPC is disabledManfred Spraul1-2/+7
For the sysvsem undo, each task struct contains a sysv_sem structure with a pointer to the undo information. This pointer is only necessary if sysvipc is enabled - thus the pointer can be made conditional on CONFIG_SYSVIPC.

2011-11-02ipc/sem.c: remove private structures from public header fileManfred Spraul1-42/+0
include/linux/sem.h contains several structures that are only used within ipc/sem.c. The patch moves them into ipc/sem.c - there is no need to expose the structures to the whole kernel. No functional changes, only whitespace cleanups and 80-char per line fixes.

2010-05-27ipc/sem.c: cacheline align the ipc spinlock for semaphoresManfred Spraul1-1/+3
Cacheline align the spinlock for sysv semaphores. Without the patch, the spinlock and sem_otime [written by every semop that modified the array] and sem_base [read in the hot path of try_atomic_semop()] can be in the same cacheline.

2009-12-16ipc/sem.c: add a per-semaphore pending listManfred Spraul1-1/+4
Based on Nick's findings: sysv sem has the concept of semaphore arrays that consist out of multiple semaphores. Atomic operations that affect multiple semaphores are supported. The patch is the first step for optimizing simple, single semaphore operations: In addition to the global list of all pending operations, a 2nd, per-semaphore list with the simple operations is added. Note: this patch does not make sense by itself, the new list is used nowhere.

2008-07-25ipc/sem.c: rewrite undo list lockingManfred Spraul1-1/+5
The attached patch: - reverses the locking order of ulp->lock and sem_lock: Previously, it was first ulp->lock, then inside sem_lock. Now it's the other way around. - converts the undo structure to rcu. Benefits: - With the old locking order, IPC_RMID could not kfree the undo structures. The stale entries remained in the linked lists and were released later. - The patch fixes a a race in semtimedop(): if both IPC_RMID and a semget() that recreates exactly the same id happen between find_alloc_undo() and sem_lock, then semtimedop() would access already kfree'd memory.

2007-10-19ipc: store ipcs into IDRsNadia Derbey1-1/+0
This patch introduces ipcs storage into IDRs. The main changes are: . This ipc_ids structure is changed: the entries array is changed into a root idr structure. . The grow_ary() routine is removed: it is not needed anymore when adding an ipc structure, since we are now using the IDR facility. . The ipc_rmid() routine interface is changed: . there is no need for this routine to return the pointer passed in as argument: it is now declared as a void . since the id is now part of the kern_ipc_perm structure, no need to have it as an argument to the routine Signed-off-by: Nadia Derbey <Nadia.Derbey@bull.net> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

2005-04-16Linux-2.6.12-rc2Linus Torvalds1-0/+157
Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
