Allow forcing the use of sys membarrier

When using the default (liburcu.so) and bulletproof (liburcu-bp.so)
flavours of Userspace RCU, kernel support for sys-membarrier is detected
dynamically and stored in the rcu_has_sys_membarrier_memb and
urcu_bp_has_sys_membarrier global variables.

Checking the value of these variables adds a small but measurable overhead
to smp_mb_slave. On systems which support sys-membarrier, it would be
nice to have a way of avoiding that overhead.

Here is the proposed approach: if CONFIG_RCU_FORCE_SYS_MEMBARRIER is
defined then rcu_has_sys_membarrier_memb/urcu_bp_has_sys_membarrier are
replaced with the constant 1, eliminating the overhead in smp_mb_slave.
As a sanity check, support for sys-membarrier is still detected at
startup. A program using liburcu or liburcu-bp compiled with this option
aborts in the library constructor if the membarrier system call is not
supported by the operating system.

When testing liburcu on a 3.18 Linux kernel, 2-core MIPS (cpu model :
Ingenic JZRISC V4.15  FPU V0.0), we notice that a blocked sys_futex
FUTEX_WAIT returns -1, errno=ENOSYS when interrupted by a SA_RESTART
signal handler. This spurious ENOSYS behavior causes hangs in liburcu
0.9.x. Running a MIPS 3.18 kernel under a QEMU emulator exhibits the
same behavior. This might affect earlier kernels.

This issue appears to be fixed in 3.19 since commit e967ef022 "MIPS: Fix
restart of indirect syscalls", but nevertheless, we should try to handle
this kernel bug more gracefully than a user-space hang due to unexpected
spurious ENOSYS return value.

Therefore, fallback on the "async-safe" version of compat_futex in those
situations where FUTEX_WAIT returns ENOSYS. This async-safe fallback has
the nice property of being OK to use concurrently with other FUTEX_WAKE
and FUTEX_WAIT futex() calls, because it's simply a busy-wait scheme.

The 4.2 kernel on parisc, and likely newer kernels too, are also

Fix: urcu-signal: smp_mb_master() needs registry lock

The signal-based urcu flavor calls smp_mb_master() within the wait_gp()
function. Since commit "Fix: deadlock when thread join is issued in
read-side C.S.", wait_gp() is called without the registry lock held.

4 years agolfstack: relax constraints on node re-use
Mathieu Desnoyers [Tue, 22 Sep 2015 16:15:02 +0000 (12:15 -0400)] 
lfstack: relax constraints on node re-use

The documentation of the RCU-based synchronization technique in lfstack
is too strict. It currently states that the cds_lfs_node structure
cannot be overwritten before a grace period has passed. However, lfstack
pop only use the next pointer as the replacement value when doing the
cmpxchg on the head. After the node has been pop'd from the stack,
concurrent cmpxchg trying to pop that same node will necessarily fail as
long as there is a grace period before pop/pop_all and re-adding the
node into the stack.

It is therefore sufficient to wait for a grace period between:
1) pop/pop_all and
2) freeing the node (to ensure existence for concurrent pop trying to
   read node->next) or re-adding the node into the stack.

This node re-use constraint relaxation is only possible because we don't
care about node->next content read by concurrent pop: it will be simply
discarded by the cmpxchg on head. Be careful not to apply this relaxed
constraint to other data structures which care about the content of the
node's next pointer (e.g. wfstack).

This relaxed constraint allows implementing efficient free-lists (memory
allocation) with a lock-free allocation/free based on lfstack: it allows
re-using the memory backing the free-list node immediately after
allocation. The only requirement with respect to this use-case is to
wait for a grace period before putting the node back into the free-list.

Also update the test_urcu_lfs to poison the next pointer immediately
after pop/pop_all to make sure we test this relaxed constraint.

4 years agoFix: dynamic fallback to compat futex on sys_futex ENOSYS
Mathieu Desnoyers [Fri, 11 Sep 2015 14:33:43 +0000 (10:33 -0400)] 
Fix: dynamic fallback to compat futex on sys_futex ENOSYS

Some MIPS processors (e.g. Cavium Octeon II) dynamically check if the
CPU supports ll/sc within sys_futex, and return a ENOSYS errno if they
don't, even though the architecture implements sys_futex.

Handle this situation by always building the sys_futex compatibility
layer, and fall-back on it if sys_futex return a ENOSYS errno. This is
a tiny compat layer which adds very little space overhead.

This adds an unlikely branch on return from sys_futex, which should
not be an issue performance-wise (we've already taken a system call).

Since this is a fall-back mode, don't try to be clever, and don't cache
the result, so that the common cases (architectures with a properly
working sys_futex) don't get two conditional branches, just one.

4 years agoUpdate following changes to sys_membarrier ABI
Mathieu Desnoyers [Sat, 29 Aug 2015 03:15:33 +0000 (23:15 -0400)] 
Update following changes to sys_membarrier ABI

sys_membarrier underwent changes between its original implementation and
its upcoming inclusion into the Linux kernel. Update its use to follow
those changes.

Should the prior user-space code be built against a kernel header that
defines SYS_membarrier, and executed against that kernel, the following
scenarios may happen:

- -1 will be returned with EINVAL errno if the 2nd argument (flags) is
  non-zero (the previous ABI expected a single argument),
- (MEMBARRIER_EXPEDITED | MEMBARRIER_QUERY) defined as
  (1 << 0) | (1 << 16) will return -1 with EINVAL errno, because valid
  commands are now one-hot.

Therefore, should an incompatible user-space code try to use
sys_membarrier, it will simply think that the system does not have
membarrier support due to the negative return value upon query.
