Subject[PATCH v10 1/8] hugetlb_cgroup: Add hugetlb_cgroup reservation counter
From
These counters will track hugetlb reservations rather than hugetlb
memory faulted in. This patch only adds the counter, following patches
add the charging and uncharging of the counter.

This is patch 1 of an 8 patch series.

Problem:
Currently tasks attempting to reserve more hugetlb memory than is available get
a failure at mmap/shmget time. This is thanks to Hugetlbfs Reservations [1].
However, if a task attempts to reserve hugetlb memory only more than its
hugetlb_cgroup limit allows, the kernel will allow the mmap/shmget call,
but will SIGBUS the task when it attempts to fault the memory in.

We have users hitting their hugetlb_cgroup limits and thus we've been
looking at this failure mode. We'd like to improve this behavior such that users
violating the hugetlb_cgroup limits get an error on mmap/shmget time, rather
than getting SIGBUS'd when they try to fault the excess memory in. This
gives the user an opportunity to fallback more gracefully to
non-hugetlbfs memory for example.

The underlying problem is that today's hugetlb_cgroup accounting happens
at hugetlb memory *fault* time, rather than at *reservation* time.
Thus, enforcing the hugetlb_cgroup limit only happens at fault time, and
the offending task gets SIGBUS'd.

Proposed Solution:
A new page counter named
'hugetlb.xMB.reservation_[limit|usage|max_usage]_in_bytes'. This counter has
slightly different semantics than
'hugetlb.xMB.[limit|usage|max_usage]_in_bytes':

- While usage_in_bytes tracks all *faulted* hugetlb memory,
reservation_usage_in_bytes tracks all *reserved* hugetlb memory and
hugetlb memory faulted in without a prior reservation.

- If a task attempts to reserve more memory than limit_in_bytes allows,
the kernel will allow it to do so. But if a task attempts to reserve
more memory than reservation_limit_in_bytes, the kernel will fail this
reservation.

This proposal is implemented in this patch series, with tests to verify
functionality and show the usage.

Alternatives considered:
1. A new cgroup, instead of only a new page_counter attached to
the existing hugetlb_cgroup. Adding a new cgroup seemed like a lot of code
duplication with hugetlb_cgroup. Keeping hugetlb related page counters under
hugetlb_cgroup seemed cleaner as well.

2. Instead of adding a new counter, we considered adding a sysctl that modifies
the behavior of hugetlb.xMB.[limit|usage]_in_bytes, to do accounting at
reservation time rather than fault time. Adding a new page_counter seems
better as userspace could, if it wants, choose to enforce different cgroups
differently: one via limit_in_bytes, and another via
reservation_limit_in_bytes. This could be very useful if you're
transitioning how hugetlb memory is partitioned on your system one
cgroup at a time, for example. Also, someone may find usage for both
limit_in_bytes and reservation_limit_in_bytes concurrently, and this
approach gives them the option to do so.

Testing:
- Added tests passing.
- Used libhugetlbfs for regression testing.
