Subject[PATCH 18/30] x86, kaiser: map virtually-addressed performance monitoring buffers
From
Date

From: Hugh Dickins <hughd@google.com>
[Dave] Add explicit _PAGE_GLOBAL
[Dave] remove KAISER #ifdefs by moving kmalloc() to plain page allocator
[Dave] reword the commit message a bit to be consistent with other patches

The BTS and PEBS buffers both have their virtual addresses
programmed into the hardware. This means that any access to them
is performed via the page tables. The times that the hardware
accesses these are entirely dependent on how the performance
monitoring hardware events are set up. In other words, there is
no way for the kernel to tell when the hardware might access
these buffers.

To avoid perf crashes, place 'debug_store' in the user-mapped
per-cpu area instead of dynamically allocating. Also use the
page allocator plus kaiser_add_mapping() to keep the BTS and PEBS
buffers user-mapped (that is, present in the user mapping, though
visible only to kernel and hardware). The PEBS fixup buffer does
not need this treatment.

The need for a user-mapped struct debug_store showed up before doing
any conscious perf testing: in a couple of kernel paging oopses on
Westmere, implicating the debug_store offset of the per-cpu area.
