SubjectRe: [PATCH] sched: CPU hotplug events must not destroy scheduler domains created by the cpusets
I think this patch is ok --- though (1) perhaps it should have been two patches,
as it seems to fix two bugs, and (2) I only managed to get my head about 80% of
the way around this, so while I confident enough to Ack this one, I'm not
as certain as I might be.

Acked-by: Paul Jackson <pj@sgi.com>


I did see a couple of places where the code could be more clearly presented,
and a couple of lines ending in space characters in *.c files (the Doc files
are hopelessly failing this space terminator test, so I gave up on them.)

Your patch includes the following. Note the embedded "line ends in space"'s.

The above patch, on top of the code already there, ends up with the
following code for update_sched_domains():

============================== begin ==============================
static int update_sched_domains(struct notifier_block *nfb,
unsigned long action, void *hcpu)
{
switch (action) {
case CPU_UP_PREPARE:
case CPU_UP_PREPARE_FROZEN:
case CPU_DOWN_PREPARE:
case CPU_DOWN_PREPARE_FROZEN:
detach_destroy_domains(&cpu_online_map);
free_sched_domains();
return NOTIFY_OK;
case CPU_UP_CANCELED:
case CPU_UP_CANCELED_FROZEN:
case CPU_DOWN_FAILED:
case CPU_DOWN_FAILED_FROZEN:
case CPU_ONLINE:
case CPU_ONLINE_FROZEN:
case CPU_DEAD:
case CPU_DEAD_FROZEN:
/*
* Fall through and re-initialise the domains.
*/
break;
default:
return NOTIFY_DONE;
}
#ifndef CONFIG_CPUSETS
/*
* Create default domain partitioning if cpusets are disabled.
* Otherwise we let cpusets rebuild the domains based on the
* current setup.
*/
/* The hotplug lock is already held by cpu_up/cpu_down */
arch_init_sched_domains(&cpu_online_map);
#endif
return NOTIFY_OK;
}
=============================== end ===============================
The "Fall through", break, ifndef and out of the switch call seem to be
a more convoluted way of writing that routine than is necessary.

How about:
1) Defining arch_init_sched_domains() for all CONFIGs, CPUSET or not
(see for example how free_sched_groups() is defined, NUMA or not)
2) Then the ifndef can be removed from here.
3) Then the arch_init_sched_domains() can be moved comfortably inside
the switch statement.

The end result would be a update_sched_domains() routine that looked
something like the following:

============================== begin ==============================
static int update_sched_domains(struct notifier_block *nfb,
unsigned long action, void *hcpu)
{
switch (action) {
case CPU_UP_PREPARE:
case CPU_UP_PREPARE_FROZEN:
case CPU_DOWN_PREPARE:
case CPU_DOWN_PREPARE_FROZEN:
detach_destroy_domains(&cpu_online_map);
free_sched_domains();
return NOTIFY_OK;
case CPU_UP_CANCELED:
case CPU_UP_CANCELED_FROZEN:
case CPU_DOWN_FAILED:
case CPU_DOWN_FAILED_FROZEN:
case CPU_ONLINE:
case CPU_ONLINE_FROZEN:
case CPU_DEAD:
case CPU_DEAD_FROZEN:
arch_init_sched_domains(&cpu_online_map);
return NOTIFY_OK;
default:
return NOTIFY_DONE;
}
}
=============================== end ===============================

===

This routine:

static void free_sched_domains(void)
{
ndoms_cur = 0;
if (doms_cur != &fallback_doms)
kfree(doms_cur);
doms_cur = &fallback_doms;
}
might be easier to read as:

static void free_sched_domains(void)
{
ndoms_cur = 0;
if (doms_cur != &fallback_doms) {
kfree(doms_cur);
doms_cur = &fallback_doms;
}
}

I won't rest till it's the best ...
