Subject: [PATCH v1 05/25] u64_stats: Document writer non-preemptibility requirement
Date: Tue, 19 May 2020 23:45:27 +0200
Message-ID: <20200519214547.352050-6-a.darwish@linutronix.de> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200519214547.352050-1-a.darwish@linutronix.de>

The u64_stats mechanism uses sequence counters to protect against 64-bit
values tearing on 32-bit architectures. Updating such statistics is a
sequence counter write side critical section.

Preemption must be disabled before entering this seqcount write critical
section.  Failing to do so, the seqcount read side can preempt the write
side section and spin for the entire scheduler tick.  If that reader
belongs to a real-time scheduling class, it can spin forever and the
kernel will livelock.

Document this statistics update side non-preemptibility requirement.

Reword the u64_stats header file top comment to always mention "Reader"
or "Writer" at the start of each bullet point, making it easier to
follow which side each point is actually for.

Fix the statement "whole thing is a NOOP on 64bit arches or UP kernels".
For 32-bit UP kernels, preemption is always disabled for the statistics
read side section.

  * we provide a synchronization point, that is a noop on 64bit or UP kernels.
  *
  * Key points :
- * 1) Use a seqcount on SMP 32bits, with low overhead.
- * 2) Whole thing is a noop on 64bit arches or UP kernels.
- * 3) Write side must ensure mutual exclusion or one seqcount update could
+ *
+ * 1) Use a seqcount on 32-bit SMP, only disable preemption for 32-bit UP.
+ *
+ * 2) The whole thing is a no-op on 64-bit architectures.
+ *
+ * 3) Write side must ensure mutual exclusion, or one seqcount update could
  *    be lost, thus blocking readers forever.
- *    If this synchronization point is not a mutex, but a spinlock or
- *    spinlock_bh() or disable_bh() :
- * 3.1) Write side should not sleep.
- * 3.2) Write side should not allow preemption.
- * 3.3) If applicable, interrupts should be disabled.
  *
- * 4) If reader fetches several counters, there is no guarantee the whole values
- *    are consistent (remember point 1) : this is a noop on 64bit arches anyway)
+ * 4) Write side must disable preemption, or a seqcount reader can preempt the
+ *    writer and also spin forever.
  *
- * 5) readers are allowed to sleep or be preempted/interrupted : They perform
- *    pure reads. But if they have to fetch many values, it's better to not allow
- *    preemptions/interruptions to avoid many retries.
+ * 5) Write side must use the _irqsave() variant if other writers, or a reader,
+ *    can be invoked from an IRQ context.
  *
- * 6) If counter might be written by an interrupt, readers should block interrupts.
- *    (On UP, there is no seqcount_t protection, a reader allowing interrupts could
- *     read partial values)
+ * 6) If reader fetches several counters, there is no guarantee the whole values
+ *    are consistent w.r.t. each other (remember point #2: seqcounts are not
+ *    used for 64bit architectures).
  *
- * 7) For irq and softirq uses, readers can use u64_stats_fetch_begin_irq() and
- *    u64_stats_fetch_retry_irq() helpers
+ * 7) Readers are allowed to sleep or be preempted/interrupted: they perform
+ *    pure reads.
+ *
+ * 8) Readers must use both u64_stats_fetch_{begin,retry}_irq() if the stats
+ *    might be updated from a hardirq or softirq context (remember point #1:
+ *    seqcounts are not used for UP kernels). 32-bit UP stat readers could read
+ *    corrupted 64-bit values otherwise.
