      x86, kdump: Set crashkernel_low automatically · c729de8f
      Yinghai Lu authored
      Chao said that kdump does does work well on his system on 3.8
      without extra parameter, even iommu does not work with kdump.
      And now have to append crashkernel_low=Y in first kernel to make
      kdump work.
      We have now modified crashkernel=X to allocate memory beyong 4G (if
      available) and do not allocate low range for crashkernel if the user
      does not specify that with crashkernel_low=Y.  This causes regression
      if iommu is not enabled.  Without iommu, swiotlb needs to be setup in
      first 4G and there is no low memory available to second kernel.
      Set crashkernel_low automatically if the user does not specify that.
      For system that does support IOMMU with kdump properly, user could
      specify crashkernel_low=0 to save that 72M low ram.
      -v3: add swiotlb_size() according to Konrad.
      -v4: add comments what 8M is for according to hpa.
           also update more crashkernel_low= in kernel-parameters.txt
      -v5: update changelog according to Vivek.
      -v6: Change description about swiotlb referring according to HATAYAMA.

      x86: Don't panic if can not alloc buffer for swiotlb · ac2cbab2
      Yinghai Lu authored
      Normal boot path on system with iommu support:
      swiotlb buffer will be allocated early at first and then try to initialize
      iommu, if iommu for intel or AMD could setup properly, swiotlb buffer
      will be freed.
      The early allocating is with bootmem, and could panic when we try to use
      kdump with buffer above 4G only, or with memmap to limit mem under 4G.
      for example: memmap=4095M$1M to remove memory under 4G.
      According to Eric, add _nopanic version and no_iotlb_memory to fail
      map single later if swiotlb is still needed.
      -v2: don't pass nopanic, and use -ENOMEM return value according to Eric.
           panic early instead of using swiotlb_full to panic...according to Eric/Konrad.
      -v3: make swiotlb_init to be notpanic, but will affect:
           arm64, ia64, powerpc, tile, unicore32, x86.
      -v4: cleanup swiotlb_init by removing swiotlb_init_with_default_size.

      swiotlb: Export swioltb_nr_tbl and utilize it as appropiate. · 5f98ecdb
      FUJITA Tomonori authored
      By default the io_tlb_nslabs is set to zero, and gets set to
      whatever value is passed in via swiotlb_init_with_tbl function.
      The default value passed in is 64MB. However, if the user provides
      the 'swiotlb=<nslabs>' the default value is ignored and
      the value provided by the user is used... Except when the SWIOTLB
      is used under Xen - there the default value of 64MB is used and
      the Xen-SWIOTLB has no mechanism to get the 'io_tlb_nslabs' filled
      out by setup_io_tlb_npages functions. This patch provides a function
      for the Xen-SWIOTLB to call to see if the io_tlb_nslabs is set
      and if so use that value.

      include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking... · 5a0e3ad6
      Tejun Heo authored
      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.

      x86: Handle HW IOMMU initialization failure gracefully · 75f1cdf1
      FUJITA Tomonori authored
      If HW IOMMU initialization fails (Intel VT-d often does this,
      typically due to BIOS bugs), we fall back to nommu. It doesn't
      work for the majority since nowadays we have more than 4GB
      memory so we must use swiotlb instead of nommu.
      The problem is that it's too late to initialize swiotlb when HW
      IOMMU initialization fails. We need to allocate swiotlb memory
      earlier from bootmem allocator. Chris explained the issue in
      The current x86 IOMMU initialization sequence is too complicated
      and handling the above issue makes it more hacky.
      This patch changes x86 IOMMU initialization sequence to handle
      the above issue cleanly.
      The new x86 IOMMU initialization sequence are:
      1. we initialize the swiotlb (and setting swiotlb to 1) in the case
         of (max_pfn > MAX_DMA32_PFN && !no_iommu). dma_ops is set to
         swiotlb_dma_ops or nommu_dma_ops. if swiotlb usage is forced by
         the boot option, we finish here.
      2. we call the detection functions of all the IOMMUs
      3. the detection function sets x86_init.iommu.iommu_init to the
         IOMMU initialization function (so we can avoid calling the
         initialization functions of all the IOMMUs needlessly).
      4. if the IOMMU initialization function doesn't need to swiotlb
         then sets swiotlb to zero (e.g. the initialization is
      5. if we find that swiotlb is set to zero, we free swiotlb

      swiotlb: Defer swiotlb init printing, export swiotlb_print_info() · ad32e8cb

      This enables us to avoid printing swiotlb memory info when we

      that we don't need swiotlb.
      This patch removes the code to print swiotlb memory info in
      swiotlb_init() and exports the function to do that.

      swiotlb_free() function frees all allocated memory for swiotlb.
      We need to initialize swiotlb before IOMMU initialization (x86
      and powerpc needs to allocate memory from bootmem allocator). If
      IOMMU initialization is successful, we need to free swiotlb
