      xen: fix hang on suspend. · c5cae661
      Ian Campbell authored
      In 65f63384 "xen: improve error handling in do_suspend" I said:
          - xs_suspend()/xs_resume() and dpm_suspend_noirq()/dpm_resume_noirq() were not
            nested in the obvious way.
      and changed the ordering of the calls as so:
          BEFORE		AFTER
          xs_suspend		dpm_suspend_noirq
          dpm_suspend_noirq	xs_suspend
          *SUSPEND*		*SUSPEND*
          dpm_resume_noirq	dpm_resume_noirq
          xs_resume		xs_resume
      Clearly this is not an improvement and I was talking rubbish.
      In particular the new ordering is susceptible to a hang if a xenstore write is
      in progress at the point at which the suspend kicks in. When the suspend
      process calls xs_suspend it tries to take the request_mutex but if a write is
      in progress it could be looping in xenbus_xs.c:read_reply() waiting for
      something to arrive on &xs_state.reply_list while holding the request_mutex
      (taken in the caller of read_reply).
      However if we have done dpm_suspend_noirq before xs_suspend then we won't get
      any more xenstore interrupts and process_msg() will never be woken up to add
      anything to the reply_list.
      Fix this by calling xs_suspend before dpm_suspend_noirq. If dpm_suspend_noirq
      fails then make sure we go through the xs_suspend_cancel() code path.

      xen: try harder to balloon up under memory pressure. · bc2c0303
      Ian Campbell authored
      Currently if the balloon driver is unable to increase the guest's
      reservation it assumes the failure was due to reaching its full
      allocation, gives up on the ballooning operation and records the limit
      it reached as the "hard limit". The driver will not try again until
      the target is set again (even to the same value).
      However it is possible that ballooning has in fact failed due to
      memory pressure in the host and therefore it is desirable to keep
      attempting to reach the target in case memory becomes available. The
      most likely scenario is that some guests are ballooning down while
      others are ballooning up and therefore there is temporary memory
      pressure while things stabilise. You would not expect a well behaved
      toolstack to ask a domain to balloon to more than its allocation nor
      would you expect it to deliberately over-commit memory by setting
      balloon targets which exceed the total host memory.
      This patch drops the concept of a hard limit and causes the balloon
      driver to retry increasing the reservation on a timer in the same
      manner as when decreasing the reservation.
      Also if we partially succeed in increasing the reservation
      (i.e. receive less pages than we asked for) then we may as well keep
      those pages rather than returning them to Xen.

      xen: make -fstack-protector work under Xen · 577eebea
      Jeremy Fitzhardinge authored
      -fstack-protector uses a special per-cpu "stack canary" value.
      gcc generates special code in each function to test the canary to make
      sure that the function's stack hasn't been overrun.
      On x86-64, this is simply an offset of %gs, which is the usual per-cpu
      base segment register, so setting it up simply requires loading %gs's
      base as normal.
      On i386, the stack protector segment is %gs (rather than the usual kernel
      percpu %fs segment register).  This requires setting up the full kernel
      GDT and then loading %gs accordingly.  We also need to make sure %gs is
      initialized when bringing up secondary cpus too.
      To keep things consistent, we do the full GDT/segment register setup on
      both architectures.
      Because we need to avoid -fstack-protected code before setting up the GDT
      and because there's no way to disable it on a per-function basis, several
      files need to have stack-protector inhibited.
      [ Impact: allow Xen booting with stack-protector enabled ]

      xen: Use kcalloc() in xen_init_IRQ() · a70c352a
      Pekka Enberg authored
      The init_IRQ() function is now called with slab allocator initialized.
      Therefore, we must not use the bootmem allocator in xen_init_IRQ().
      Fixes the following boot-time warning:

      percpu: cleanup percpu array definitions · 204fba4a
      Tejun Heo authored
      Currently, the following three different ways to define percpu arrays
      are in use.
      1. DEFINE_PER_CPU(elem_type[array_len], array_name);
      2. DEFINE_PER_CPU(elem_type, array_name[array_len]);
      3. DEFINE_PER_CPU(elem_type, array_name)[array_len];
      Unify to #1 which correctly separates the roles of the two parameters
      and thus allows more flexibility in the way percpu variables are

      PM core: rename suspend and resume functions · d1616302
      Alan Stern authored
      This patch (as1241) renames a bunch of functions in the PM core.
      Rather than go through a boring list of name changes, suffice it to
      say that in the end we have a bunch of pairs of functions:
      	device_resume_noirq	dpm_resume_noirq
      	device_resume		dpm_resume
      	device_complete		dpm_complete
      	device_suspend_noirq	dpm_suspend_noirq
      	device_suspend		dpm_suspend
      	device_prepare		dpm_prepare
      in which device_X does the X operation on a single device and dpm_X
      invokes device_X for all devices in the dpm_list.
      In addition, the old dpm_power_up and device_resume_noirq have been
      combined into a single function (dpm_resume_noirq).
      Lastly, dpm_suspend_start and dpm_resume_end are the renamed versions
      of the former top-level device_suspend and device_resume routines.

      PM: Rename device_power_down/up() · e39a71ef
      Magnus Damm authored
      Rename the functions performing "_noirq" dev_pm_ops
      operations from device_power_down() and device_power_up()
      to device_suspend_noirq() and device_resume_noirq().
      The new function names are chosen to show that the functions
      are responsible for calling the _noirq() versions to finalize
      the suspend/resume operation. The current function names do
      not perform power down/up anymore so the names may be misleading.
      Global function renames:
      - device_power_down() -> device_suspend_noirq()
      - device_power_up() -> device_resume_noirq()
      Static function renames:
      - suspend_device_noirq() -> __device_suspend_noirq()
      - resume_device_noirq() -> __device_resume_noirq()

      This simplifies the node awareness of the code. All our allocators

      xen: honour VCPU availability on boot · 53152f95
      Ian Campbell authored
      If a VM is booted with offline VCPUs then unplug them during boot. Determining
      the availability of a VCPU requires access to XenStore which is not available
      at the point smp_prepare_cpus() is called, therefore we bring up all VCPUS
      initially and unplug the offline ones as soon as XenStore becomes available.
