This means that idle threads (except "swapper") are visible to for_each_process()
and do_each_thread(). Looks dangerous and somewhat strange to me.

Could you explain this change?

Oleg.

Good catch.  I've been so busy pounding reviewing this patches into
something that made sense that I missed the fact that we care about
this for more than just the NULL pointer that would occur if we didn't
do this.

Still it would be good if we could find a way to remove this rare
special case.

Any chance we can undo what we don't want done for_idle, or create
a factor of copy_process that only does as much as fork_idle should do,
and make copy_process a wrapper that does the rest.

I doubt it is significant anywhere but it would be nice to remove a
branch that except at boot up never happens.

Why it is bad to have a NULL pointer for idle thread? (Sorry for stupid
question, I can't track the code changes these days).

... or at cpu-hotplug. Probably you are right, but I am not sure.

The "if (p->pid)" check in essence implements CLONE_UNHASHED flag,
it may be useful.

Nice changelog :)

The patch looks good, except __set_special_pids(1, 1) should be no-op.
This is a child forked by swapper. copy_process() was changed by
	use-task_pgrp-task_session-in-copy_process.patch

Could you explain this as well? Some other changes I missed?

Err. I meant NULL pointer dereference.

As I recall the patch series started with modifying attach_pid
to take a struct pid pointer instead of a pid_t value.  It means
fewer hash table looks ups and it should help in implementing the pid
namespace.

Well the initial kernel process does not have a struct pid so when
it's children start doing:
	attach_pid(p, PIDTYPE_PGID, task_group(p));
	attach_pid(p, PIDTYPE_SID, task_session(p));
We will get an oops.

So a dummy unhashed struct pid was added for the idle threads.
Allowing several special cases in the code to be removed.

With that chance the previous special case to force the idle thread
init session 1 pgrp 1 no longer works because attach_pid no longer
looks at the pid value but instead at the struct pid pointers.

So we had to add the __set_special_pids() to continue to keep init
in session 1 pgrp 1.  Since /sbin/init calls setsid() that our setting
the sid and the pgrp may not be strictly necessary.  Still is better
to not take any chances.

Anyway the point of removing the likely(pid) check was that it didn't
look necessary any longer. But as you have correctly pointed putting
it on the task list and incrementing the process count for the idle
threads is probably still a problem.  So while we are much better we
still have some use for the if (likely(p->pid)) special case.

Is that enough to bring you up to speed?

Eric

So far this is the only reason to have init_struct_pid. Because the
boot CPU (swapper) forks, right?

Yes, yes, I see. But my (very unclear, sorry) question was: shouldn't we
change INIT_SIGNALS then? /sbin/init inherits ->pgrp == ->_session == 1,
in that case __set_special_pids(1,1) does nothing.

Yes. Note also that the parent doing fork_idle() is not always swapper,
it is just wrong to do attach_pid(PIDTYPE_PGID/PIDTYPE_SID) in this case.
example: arch/x86_64/kernel/smpboot.c:do_boot_cpu()

Yes, I think this change should be dropped for now.

Damn. I am afraid I was not clear again :) Not init_struct_pid, but

	+       .pids = {                                                       \

... and thus /sbin/init remains attached to the .pids above, no?

The problem is that we dynamically allocate the struct pid for 
pid_t == 1 when we fork init.

Which means we don't have access to it at compile time so we can
no longer make INIT_SIGNALS set ->gprp == ->session == 1.

Yes! I meant we should change INIT_SIGNALS(), currently it does

	#define INIT_SIGNALS(sig) {
		...
		.pgrp           = 1,
		{ .__session      = 1},

and this confuses (I think) set_special_pids(1,1) above. Because
__set_special_pids() still deals with pid_t, not "struct pid".

Unless I missed something, we should kill these 2 initializations
above.

Oleg.
