When creating the write thread, ensure that the kthread has been created before initializing the timer responsible from kicking it. Otherwise, if the kthread creation fails or gets killed from used space, we risk kicking an empty thread structure. Also, since the kthread creation can be interrupted form user space, adapt the error path to not report an error when this happens, since it is intentional that the instance creation is aborted.

2018-01-05lightnvm: pblk: do not log recovery read errorsJavier González2-3/+4
On scan recovery, reads can fail. This happens because the first page for each line is read in order to determined if the line has been used (and thus needs to be recovered), or not. This can lead to "empty page" read errors. Since these errors are normal, do not log them, as they are confusing when reviewing the logs.

2017-11-02License cleanup: add SPDX GPL-2.0 license identifier to files with no licenseGreg Kroah-Hartman1-0/+1
Many source files in the tree are missing licensing information, which makes it harder for compliance tools to determine the correct license. By default all files without license information are under the default license of the kernel, which is GPL version 2. Update the files which contain no license information with the 'GPL-2.0' SPDX license identifier. The SPDX identifier is a legally binding shorthand, which can be used instead of the full boiler plate text. This patch is based on work done by Thomas Gleixner and Kate Stewart and Philippe Ombredanne. How this work was done: Patches were generated and checked against linux-4.14-rc6 for a subset of the use cases: - file had no licensing information it it. - file was a */uapi/* one with no licensing information in it, - file was a */uapi/* one with existing licensing information, Further patches will be generated in subsequent months to fix up cases where non-standard license headers were used, and references to license had to be inferred by heuristics based on keywords. The analysis to determine which SPDX License Identifier to be applied to a file was done in a spreadsheet of side by side results from of the output of two independent scanners (ScanCode & Windriver) producing SPDX tag:value files created by Philippe Ombredanne. Philippe prepared the base worksheet, and did an initial spot review of a few 1000 files. The 4.13 kernel was the starting point of the analysis with 60,537 files assessed. Kate Stewart did a file by file comparison of the scanner results in the spreadsheet to determine which SPDX license identifier(s) to be applied to the file. She confirmed any determination that was not immediately clear with lawyers working with the Linux Foundation. Criteria used to select files for SPDX license identifier tagging was: - Files considered eligible had to be source code files. - Make and config files were included as candidates if they contained >5 lines of source - File already had some variant of a license header in it (even if <5 lines). All documentation files were explicitly excluded. The following heuristics were used to determine which SPDX license identifiers to apply. - when both scanners couldn't find any license traces, file was considered to have no license information in it, and the top level COPYING file license applied. For non */uapi/* files that summary was: SPDX license identifier # files ---------------------------------------------------|------- GPL-2.0 11139 and resulted in the first patch in this series. If that file was a */uapi/* path one, it was "GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note" otherwise it was "GPL-2.0". Results of that was: SPDX license identifier # files ---------------------------------------------------|------- GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note 930 and resulted in the second patch in this series. - if a file had some form of licensing information in it, and was one of the */uapi/* ones, it was denoted with the Linux-syscall-note if any GPL family license was found in the file or had no licensing in it (per prior point). Results summary: SPDX license identifier # files ---------------------------------------------------|------ GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note 270 GPL-2.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note 169 ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR BSD-2-Clause) 21 ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR BSD-3-Clause) 17 LGPL-2.1+ WITH Linux-syscall-note 15 GPL-1.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note 14 ((GPL-2.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR BSD-3-Clause) 5 LGPL-2.0+ WITH Linux-syscall-note 4 LGPL-2.1 WITH Linux-syscall-note 3 ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) OR MIT) 3 ((GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note) AND MIT) 1 and that resulted in the third patch in this series. - when the two scanners agreed on the detected license(s), that became the concluded license(s). - when there was disagreement between the two scanners (one detected a license but the other didn't, or they both detected different licenses) a manual inspection of the file occurred. - In most cases a manual inspection of the information in the file resulted in a clear resolution of the license that should apply (and which scanner probably needed to revisit its heuristics). - When it was not immediately clear, the license identifier was confirmed with lawyers working with the Linux Foundation. - If there was any question as to the appropriate license identifier, the file was flagged for further research and to be revisited later in time. In total, over 70 hours of logged manual review was done on the spreadsheet to determine the SPDX license identifiers to apply to the source files by Kate, Philippe, Thomas and, in some cases, confirmation by lawyers working with the Linux Foundation. Kate also obtained a third independent scan of the 4.13 code base from FOSSology, and compared selected files where the other two scanners disagreed against that SPDX file, to see if there was new insights. The Windriver scanner is based on an older version of FOSSology in part, so they are related. Thomas did random spot checks in about 500 files from the spreadsheets for the uapi headers and agreed with SPDX license identifier in the files he inspected. For the non-uapi files Thomas did random spot checks in about 15000 files. In initial set of patches against 4.14-rc6, 3 files were found to have copy/paste license identifier errors, and have been fixed to reflect the correct identifier. Additionally Philippe spent 10 hours this week doing a detailed manual inspection and review of the 12,461 patched files from the initial patch version early this week with: - a full scancode scan run, collecting the matched texts, detected license ids and scores - reviewing anything where there was a license detected (about 500+ files) to ensure that the applied SPDX license was correct - reviewing anything where there was no detection but the patch license was not GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note to ensure that the applied SPDX license was correct This produced a worksheet with 20 files needing minor correction. This worksheet was then exported into 3 different .csv files for the different types of files to be modified. These .csv files were then reviewed by Greg. Thomas wrote a script to parse the csv files and add the proper SPDX tag to the file, in the format that the file expected. This script was further refined by Greg based on the output to detect more types of files automatically and to distinguish between header and source .c files (which need different comment types.) Finally Greg ran the script using the .csv files to generate the patches.

2017-10-13lightnvm: pblk: avoid being reported as hung on rated GCJavier González1-1/+7
The amount of GC I/O on the write buffer is managed by the rate-limiter, which is calculated as a function of the number of available free blocks. When reaching the stable point, we risk having scheduled more I/Os for GC than are allowed on the write buffer. This would result on the GC semaphore balancing the outstanding read GC I/Os to be reported as "hung", though the behavior is normal. Solve this by allowing to schedule when we detect that the read GC path is not moving forward.

2017-10-13lightnvm: pblk: consider bad sectors in emeta during recoveryHans Holmberg1-14/+30
When recovering lines we need to consider that bad blocks in a line affect the emeta area size. Previously it was assumed that the emeta area would grow by the number of sectors per page * number of bad blocks in the line. This assumption is not correct - the number of "extra" pages that are consumed could be both smaller (depending on emeta size) and bigger (depending on the placement of the bad blocks). Fix this by calculating the emeta start by iterating backwards through the line, skipping ppas that map to bad blocks. Also fix the data types used for ppa indices/counts in pblk_recov_l2p_from_emeta - we should use u64.

vblk isn't being used anyway and if we ever have a usecase we can introduce this again. This makes the logic easier and removes unnecessary checks. Signed-off-by: Rakesh Pandit <rakesh@tuxera.com> Signed-off-by: Matias Bjørling <m@bjorling.me> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <axboe@kernel.dk>

2017-10-13lightnvm: pblk: fix changing GC group list for a lineRakesh Pandit1-2/+2
pblk_line_gc_list seems to had a bug since the introduction of pblk in getting GC list for a line. In b20ba1bc7 while redesigning the GC algorithm, the naming for the GC thresholds was altered, but the values for high_thrs and mid_thrs were not. The result is that when moving to the GC lists, the mid threshold is never evaluated.

2017-10-13lightnvm: pblk: ensure right bad block calculationJavier González1-1/+1
Make sure that the variable controlling block threshold for allocating extra metadata sectors in case of a line with bad blocks does not get a negative value. Otherwise, the line will be marked as corrupted and wasted.

2017-10-13lightnvm: pblk: enable 1 LUN configurationJavier González4-19/+29
Metadata I/Os are scheduled to minimize their impact on user data I/Os. When there are enough LUNs instantiated (i.e., enough bandwidth), it is easy to interleave metadata and data one after the other so that metadata I/Os are the ones being blocked and not vice-versa. We do this by calculating the distance between the I/Os in terms of the LUNs that are not in used, and selecting a free LUN that satisfies a the simple heuristic that metadata is scheduled behind. The per-LUN semaphores guarantee consistency. This works fine on >1 LUN configuration. However, when a single LUN is instantiated, this design leads to a deadlock, where metadata waits to be scheduled on a free LUN. This patch implements the 1 LUN case by simply scheduling the metadada I/O after the data I/O. In the process, we refactor the way a line is replaced to ensure that metadata writes are submitted after data writes in order to guarantee block sequentiality. Note that, since there is only one LUN, both I/Os will block each other by design. However, such configuration only pursues tight read latencies, not write bandwidth.

2017-10-13lightnvm: pblk: remove I/O dependency on write pathJavier González1-80/+65
pblk schedules user I/O, metadata I/O and erases on the write path in order to minimize collisions at the media level. Until now, there has been a dependency between user and metadata I/Os that could lead to a deadlock as both take the per-LUN semaphore to schedule submission. This path removes this dependency and guarantees forward progress at a per I/O granurality.
