      mm/page_owner: keep track of page owners · 48c96a36
      Joonsoo Kim authored
      This is the page owner tracking code which is introduced so far ago.  It
      is resident on Andrew's tree, though, nobody tried to upstream so it
      remain as is.  Our company uses this feature actively to debug memory leak
      or to find a memory hogger so I decide to upstream this feature.
      This functionality help us to know who allocates the page.  When
      allocating a page, we store some information about allocation in extra
      memory.  Later, if we need to know status of all pages, we can get and
      analyze it from this stored information.
      In previous version of this feature, extra memory is statically defined in
      struct page, but, in this version, extra memory is allocated outside of
      struct page.  It enables us to turn on/off this feature at boottime
      without considerable memory waste.
      Although we already have tracepoint for tracing page allocation/free,
      using it to analyze page owner is rather complex.  We need to enlarge the
      trace buffer for preventing overlapping until userspace program launched.
      And, launched program continually dump out the trace buffer for later
      analysis and it would change system behaviour with more possibility rather
      than just keeping it in memory, so bad for debug.
      Moreover, we can use page_owner feature further for various purposes.  For
      example, we can use it for fragmentation statistics implemented in this
      patch.  And, I also plan to implement some CMA failure debugging feature
      using this interface.
      I'd like to give the credit for all developers contributed this feature,
      but, it's not easy because I don't know exact history.  Sorry about that.

      tools/vm/page-types.c: page-cache sniffing feature · 65a6a410
      Konstantin Khlebnikov authored
      After this patch 'page-types' can walk over a file's mappings and
      analyze populated page cache pages mostly without disturbing its state.
      It maps chunk of file, marks VMA as MADV_RANDOM to turn off readahead,
      pokes VMA via mincore() to determine cached pages, triggers page-fault
      only for them, and finally gathers information via pagemap/kpageflags.
      Before unmap it marks VMA as MADV_SEQUENTIAL for ignoring reference
      usage: page-types -f <path>
      If <path> is directory it will analyse all files in all subdirectories.
      Symlinks are not followed as well as mount points.  Hardlinks aren't
      handled, they'll be dumped as many times as they are found.  Recursive
      walk brings all dentries into dcache and populates page cache of
      block-devices aka 'Buffers'.
      Probably it's worth to add ioctl for dumping file page cache as array of
      PFNs as a replacement for this hackish juggling with
      mmap/madvise/mincore/pagemap.  Also recursive walk could be replaced
      with dumping cached inodes via some ioctl or debugfs interface followed
      by openning them via open_by_handle_at, this would fix hardlinks
      handling and unneeded population of dcache and buffers.  This interface
      might be used as data source for constructing readahead plans and for
      background optimizations of actively used files.
      collateral changes:
      + fix 64-bit LFS: define _FILE_OFFSET_BITS instead of _LARGEFILE64_SOURCE
      + replace lseek + read with single pread
      + make show_page_range() reusable after flush
      usage example:
        ~/src/linux/tools/vm$ sudo ./page-types -L -f page-types
        foffset offset    flags
        page-types       Inode: 2229277       Size: 89065 (22 pages)

      Move debugfs.* to api/fs/. We have a common tools/lib/api/ place where
      the Makefile lives and then we place the headers in subdirs.
      For example, all the fs-related stuff goes to tools/lib/api/fs/ from
      which we get libapikfs.a (acme got almost the naming he wanted :-)) and
      we link it into the tools which need it - in this case perf and
      "Looking at the implementation, I think some tools can even link
      directly to the .o files, avoiding the .a file altogether.
      But that is just an optimization/finer granularity tools/lib/
      cherrypicking that toolers can make use of."
      Fixup documentation cleaning target while at it.

      tools/vm/page-types.c: support KPF_SOFTDIRTY bit · 46c77e2b
      Naoya Horiguchi authored
      Soft dirty bit allows us to track which pages are written since the last
      clear_ref (by "echo 4 > /proc/pid/clear_refs".) This is useful for
      userspace applications to know their memory footprints.
      Note that the kernel exposes this flag via bit[55] of /proc/pid/pagemap,
      and the semantics is not a default one (scheduled to be the default in the
      near future.) However, it shifts to the new semantics at the first
      clear_ref, and the users of soft dirty bit always do it before utilizing
      the bit, so that's not a big deal.  Users must avoid relying on the bit in
      page-types before the first clear_ref.
