Some of the monitor id and monitor page data sysfs files display
incorrect data. This patchset provides the following changes:

1) Change the monitor_pages index in server_monitor_pending_show() to
'0', which is the correct index for the server.

2) If monitor pages are not allocated to a channel, display nothing in
the channel's monitor id and monitor page data sysfs files. The data
that is currently shown in sysfs is incorrect.

Change the monitor_pages index in server_monitor_pending_show() to '0'.
'0' is the correct monitor_pages index for the server. A comment for the
monitor_pages field in the vmbus_connection struct definition indicates
that the 1st page is for parent->child notifications. In addition, the
server_monitor_latency_show() and server_monitor_conn_id_show()
functions use monitor_pages index '0'.

If monitor pages are not allocated to a channel, the channel does not
have a valid monitor id or valid monitor page data. In these cases, some
of the "_show" functions display incorrect data. The "_show" functions
that display monitor page data access and display data that is beyond
the bounds of the hv_monitor_page array fields, which is obviously
incorrect. The "_show" functions that display the monitor id display an
invalid monitor id.

The "channel->offermsg.monitor_allocated" value can be used to determine
whether monitor pages have been allocated to a channel. In the affected
"_show" functions, verify that "channel->offermsg.monitor_allocated" is
set before accessing the monitor id or the monitor_page data. If
"channel->offermsg.monitor_allocated" is not set, display nothing.

Looks good.

I wonder if ever gets used though since it returned incorrect data...

If monitor is not used, why not return an error instead of empty
data. Any program (or user) would have to handle that already.

I'm not sure which conditions determine whether the monitor mechanism is
used. I've searched the Hypervisor TLFS, and I couldn't find any
information. If you have any suggestions for where I can find this
information, please let me know.

No, I'm not working on a project emulating Hyper-V.

I think that returning an error instead is fine. I'll make this change
in the next version of the patch.

The monitor page stuff pre-dates my involvement with Hyper-V. KY might know.
But based on comments it looks like it was added to avoid hypercalls
for each message. It probably showed up in Windows Server 2012 timeframe.

To test you might want to dig up Windows Server 2008.

OK, I had heard that KVM project was doing something with QEMU.

It looks like the monitor mechanism has always been used. It's present in the
earliest commit that I can find: 3e7ee4902fe6 ("add the Hyper-V virtual bus")
from 2009.

I propose that the following sentences be added to the sysfs documentation for
the affected attributes:

"The monitor page mechanism is used for performance critical channels (storage,
network, etc.). Channels that do not use the monitor page mechanism will return
EINVAL."

I think that this provides sufficient information for a user to understand why
opening an affected file can return EINVAL. What do you think?

Thanks for following up. I agree with you EINVAL works as a solution.
My understanding is that their are two ways a channel can work. The first one is
for the guest to send a hyper call to the host to indicate when data is available.
The other is for the guest to indicate by setting a bit in shared memory with host.

The shared memory approach reduces host/guest overhead and allows for more opportunities
for batching in the ring. The host checks the shared memory on a polling interval
defined in the latency field.

The hypercall method does not use the monitor page. It has lower latency (no polling).

Some of the monitor id and monitor page data sysfs files display
incorrect data. This patchset provides the following changes:

1) Change the monitor_pages index in server_monitor_pending_show() to
'0', which is the correct index for the server.

2) If monitor pages are not allocated to a channel, return -EINVAL when
the channel's monitor id and monitor page data sysfs files are opened.
The data that is currently shown in sysfs is incorrect.

Changes in v2:

Patch 1: "Change server monitor_pages index to 0"
 - Added the "Acked-by" line received for v1.

Patch 2: "Return -EINVAL if monitor_allocated not set"
 - Changed the return value for cases where monitor_allocated is not set
   to "-EINVAL" as suggested by S. Hemminger.
 - Updated the commit message to provide more details about the monitor
   page mechanism as suggested by S. Hemminger.
 - Updated the sysfs documentation to describe the new return value.

Change the monitor_pages index in server_monitor_pending_show() to '0'.
'0' is the correct monitor_pages index for the server. A comment for the
monitor_pages field in the vmbus_connection struct definition indicates
that the 1st page is for parent->child notifications. In addition, the
server_monitor_latency_show() and server_monitor_conn_id_show()
functions use monitor_pages index '0'.

There are two methods for signaling the host: the monitor page mechanism
and hypercalls. The monitor page mechanism is used by performance
critical channels (storage, networking, etc.) because it provides
improved throughput. However, latency is increased. Monitor pages are
allocated to these channels.

Monitor pages are not allocated to channels that do not use the monitor
page mechanism. Therefore, these channels do not have a valid monitor id
or valid monitor page data. In these cases, some of the "_show"
functions return incorrect data. They return an invalid monitor id and
data that is beyond the bounds of the hv_monitor_page array fields.

The "channel->offermsg.monitor_allocated" value can be used to determine
whether monitor pages have been allocated to a channel. In the affected
"_show" functions, verify that "channel->offermsg.monitor_allocated" is
set before accessing the monitor id or the monitor page data. If
"channel->offermsg.monitor_allocated" is not set, return -EINVAL.

There are two methods for signaling the host: the monitor page mechanism
and hypercalls. The monitor page mechanism is used by performance
critical channels (storage, networking, etc.) because it provides
improved throughput. However, latency is increased. Monitor pages are
allocated to these channels.

Monitor pages are not allocated to channels that do not use the monitor
page mechanism. Therefore, these channels do not have a valid monitor id
or valid monitor page data. In these cases, some of the "_show"
functions return incorrect data. They return an invalid monitor id and
data that is beyond the bounds of the hv_monitor_page array fields.

The "channel->offermsg.monitor_allocated" value can be used to determine
whether monitor pages have been allocated to a channel.

Move the device-level monitor page attributes to a separate
attribute_group struct. If the channel uses the monitor page mechanism,
set up the sysfs files for these attributes in vmbus_device_register().

Move the channel-level monitor page attributes to a separate
attribute_group struct. If the channel uses the monitor page mechanism,
set up the sysfs files for these attributes in vmbus_add_channel_kobj().

Changes in v3:
The monitor "_show" functions no longer return an error when a channel
does not use the monitor page mechanism. Instead, the monitor page sysfs
files are created only when a channel uses the monitor page mechanism.
This change was suggested by G. Kroah-Hartman.

Note: this patch was originally patch 2/2 in a patchset. Patch 1/2 has
already been added to char-misc-testing, so I'm not resending it.

Changes in v2:
 - Changed the return value for cases where monitor_allocated is not set
   to "-EINVAL".
 - Updated the commit message to provide more details about the monitor
   page mechanism.
 - Updated the sysfs documentation to describe the new return value.

No need to create a special group for this and then manually add it if
you need it.  Just the is_visible() callback in the attribute instead, as
that is what it is there for.

* [PATCH v4] Drivers: hv: vmbus: Expose monitor data only when monitor pages are used

There are two methods for signaling the host: the monitor page mechanism
and hypercalls. The monitor page mechanism is used by performance
critical channels (storage, networking, etc.) because it provides
improved throughput. However, latency is increased. Monitor pages are
allocated to these channels.

Monitor pages are not allocated to channels that do not use the monitor
page mechanism. Therefore, these channels do not have a valid monitor id
or valid monitor page data. In these cases, some of the "_show"
functions return incorrect data. They return an invalid monitor id and
data that is beyond the bounds of the hv_monitor_page array fields.

The "channel->offermsg.monitor_allocated" value can be used to determine
whether monitor pages have been allocated to a channel.

Add "is_visible()" callback functions for the device-level and
channel-level attribute groups. These functions will hide the monitor
sysfs files when the monitor mechanism is not used.

Remove ".default_attributes" from "vmbus_chan_attrs" and create a
channel-level attribute group, "vmbus_chan_group". These changes allow
the new "is_visible()" callback function to be applied to the
channel-level attributes. Call "sysfs_create_group()" to create the
channel sysyfs files.

Changes in v4:
 - Added “is_visible()” callback functions for the device-level and
   channel-level attribute groups.
 - Removed the separate monitor attribute groups proposed in v3. They’re
   no longer needed because the “is_visible()” callbacks are used to
   determine the attribute visibility.
 - Removed "default_attributes" from "vmbus_chan_attrs" and created a
   channel-level attribute group.
 - Removed the "kobject_put(kobj)" call proposed in v3. The calling
   functions take care of calling "kobject_put(channel->kobj)" if an
   error is returned by "vmbus_add_channel_kobj()".
 - Updated the commit message and subject for clarity and to reflect the
   new changes in v4.

Changes in v3:
 - The monitor "_show" functions no longer return an error when a
   channel does not use the monitor page mechanism. Instead, the monitor
   page sysfs files are created only when a channel uses the monitor
   page mechanism. This change was suggested by G. Kroah-Hartman.

Note: this patch was originally patch 2/2 in a patchset. Patch 1/2 has
already been added to char-misc-testing, so I'm not resending it.

Changes in v2:
 - Changed the return value for cases where monitor_allocated is not set
   to "-EINVAL".
 - Updated the commit message to provide more details about the monitor
   page mechanism.
 - Updated the sysfs documentation to describe the new return value.

Just to double-check my understanding, removing the default_attrs
here means that in vmbus_add_channel_kobj(), the call to
kobject_init_and_add() will only create the sub-directory that is the
channel number.  The sub-directory will be empty.  Then the new
call to sysfs_create_group() that you added below will populate
the subdirectory, as filtered by vmbus_chan_attr_is_visible().

In this error case, the previously created sub-directory that is the
channel number needs to be deleted/cleaned up.

Why are you adding these "by hand"?  What was wrong with using the
default attribute group pointer?  You also are not removing the
attributes :(

I removed the default attributes because vmbus_chan_attrs contains
non-default attributes. You suggested that I use one attribute_group and
an is_visible() callback for the device-level attributes (see
https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20190226081848.GA15659@kroah.com/). I
assumed (possibly incorrectly) that I should do the same for these
channel-level attributes.

Are you referring to default_attrs in kobj_type? It's not an
attribute_group pointer, it's a pointer to an attribute pointer array.
The problem with using default_attrs is that all of the attributes are
visible.

I'm fairly certain that the monitor attributes are being removed.
sysfs_create_group() uses the attribute_group's is_visible() callback to
control the attribute visibility. And, when I look at the sysfs files, I
can see that the monitor sysyfs files are removed.

In v3, I proposed moving the monitor attributes to a special
attribute_group and adding that group manually when needed. Do you
prefer that approach for the channel-level monitor attributes?

Thanks,
Kim

Yes, that's my understanding as well.

I was going to let the kobject and sysfs systems take care of that. If
vmbus_add_channel_kobj() returns an error to the calling functions, they
call kobject_put(), which eventually removes the directory.

There are two functions that call vmbus_add_channel_kobj():
vmbus_add_channel_work() and vmbus_device_register(). If
vmbus_add_channel_kobj() returns an error to vmbus_add_channel_work(),
the function calls are:

free_channel() => kobject_put() (channel kobj ref. count should now be
0) => kobject_release() => kobject_cleanup() => kobject_del() =>
sysfs_remove_dir()

If vmbus_add_channel_kobject() returns an error to
vmbus_device_register(), the device's sub-directory is removed:

device_unregister() => put_device() => kobject_put() (device kobj ref.
count should now be 0) => kobject_release() => ...


So, I don't think its necessary to cleanup the subdirectory created by
kobject_init_and_add() here.

Thanks,
Kim

That is fine to have a callback, but why did you have to remove the
default attribute pointer?  The two should have nothing to do with each
other.

It shouldn't, the is_visable() callback will be called on each attribute
when the group is created by the core.  Did that not work properly when
you tested this?

I mean you are not removing the group when the device goes away, not
that the individual files are not present.  If you leave the pointer to
default_attributes there, the core will properly remove the sysfs
attributes when the device is removed from the system.  Otherwise you
just "get lucky" if the attributes are removed or not.

No need for a special group here, just use the is_visable() callback
like you currently are, all should be fine.  I think you are adding more
code than you need to in order to get this to all work properly :)

There are two methods for signaling the host: the monitor page mechanism
and hypercalls. The monitor page mechanism is used by performance
critical channels (storage, networking, etc.) because it provides
improved throughput. However, latency is increased. Monitor pages are
allocated to these channels.

Monitor pages are not allocated to channels that do not use the monitor
page mechanism. Therefore, these channels do not have a valid monitor id
or valid monitor page data. In these cases, some of the "_show"
functions return incorrect data. They return an invalid monitor id and
data that is beyond the bounds of the hv_monitor_page array fields.

The "channel->offermsg.monitor_allocated" value can be used to determine
whether monitor pages have been allocated to a channel.

Add "is_visible()" callback functions for the device-level and
channel-level attribute groups. These functions will hide the monitor
sysfs files when the monitor mechanism is not used.

Remove ".default_attributes" from "vmbus_chan_attrs" and create a
channel-level attribute group, "vmbus_chan_group". These changes allow
the new "is_visible()" callback function to be applied to the
channel-level attributes. Call "sysfs_create_group()" to create the
channel sysyfs files.

Add the “bool sysfs_group_ready” field to the vmbus_channel struct.
This field is used to ensure that the attributes in the
“vmbus_chan_group” attribute group have been created. Add the
“vmbus_remove_channel_attr_group()” function, which calls
"sysfs_remove_group()" on “vmbus_chan_group” if the attributes were
created.

Signed-off-by: Kimberly Brown <kimbrownkd@gmail.com>
---

Changes in v5: 
 - Added the “bool sysfs_group_ready” field to vmbus_channel.
 - Added the “vmbus_remove_channel_attr_group()” function which calls
   "sysfs_remove_group()".
 - Added a comment to "vmbus_add_channel_kobj()" to describe how the
   empty directory is removed if "sysfs_create_group()" returns an
   error.
 - Updated the commit message.

NOTE: “.default_attrs” must be removed from vmbus_chan_ktype in order to
use the is_visible() function because "default_attrs" is an array of
attributes, not an attribute_group.

Changes in v4:
 - Added “is_visible()” callback functions for the device-level and
   channel-level attribute groups.
 - Removed the separate monitor attribute groups proposed in v3. They’re
   no longer needed because the “is_visible()” callbacks are used to
   determine the attribute visibility.
 - Removed "default_attributes" from "vmbus_chan_attrs" and created a
   channel-level attribute group.
 - Removed the "kobject_put(kobj)" call proposed in v3. The calling
   functions take care of calling "kobject_put(channel->kobj)" if an
   error is returned by "vmbus_add_channel_kobj()".
 - Updated the commit message and subject for clarity and to reflect the
   new changes in v4.

Changes in v3:
 - The monitor "_show" functions no longer return an error when a
   channel does not use the monitor page mechanism. Instead, the monitor
   page sysfs files are created only when a channel uses the monitor
   page mechanism. This change was suggested by G. Kroah-Hartman.

Note: this patch was originally patch 2/2 in a patchset. Patch 1/2 has
already been added to char-misc-testing, so I'm not resending it.

Changes in v2:
 - Changed the return value for cases where monitor_allocated is not set
   to "-EINVAL".
 - Updated the commit message to provide more details about the monitor
   page mechanism.
 - Updated the sysfs documentation to describe the new return value.

As discussed on IRC, a kobj_type needs to get an attribute group one of
these days, not just a attribute list :)

So thanks for persisting with this, sorry for the earlier review
comments, you were totally right about this, nice work.

You should be able to just always remove these, no need for a flag to
say you have created them or not, right?

I added this flag to prevent sysfs_remove_group() from being called if
sysfs_create_group() or the earlier call to kobject_init_and_add()
failed. However, it looks like that would just lead to WARN() being
called, which seems appropriate. I'll remove this flag.

Another reviewer asked why the empty directory created by
kobject_init_and_add() isn't removed here when sysfs_create_group()
fails. We decided that a comment would help clear up any future
confusion.

Yes, good point. I'll change this.

There are two methods for signaling the host: the monitor page mechanism
and hypercalls. The monitor page mechanism is used by performance
critical channels (storage, networking, etc.) because it provides
improved throughput. However, latency is increased. Monitor pages are
allocated to these channels.

Monitor pages are not allocated to channels that do not use the monitor
page mechanism. Therefore, these channels do not have a valid monitor id
or valid monitor page data. In these cases, some of the "_show"
functions return incorrect data. They return an invalid monitor id and
data that is beyond the bounds of the hv_monitor_page array fields.

The "channel->offermsg.monitor_allocated" value can be used to determine
whether monitor pages have been allocated to a channel.

Add "is_visible()" callback functions for the device-level and
channel-level attribute groups. These functions will hide the monitor
sysfs files when the monitor mechanism is not used.

Remove ".default_attributes" from "vmbus_chan_attrs" and create a
channel-level attribute group. These changes allow the new
"is_visible()" callback function to be applied to the channel-level
attributes.

Call "sysfs_create_group()" in "vmbus_add_channel_kobj()" to create the
channel's sysfs files. Add a new function,
“vmbus_remove_channel_attr_group()”, and call it in "free_channel()" to
remove the channel's sysfs files when the channel is closed.

Changes in v6:
 - Removed the “sysfs_group_ready” flag proposed in v5. The flag was
   used to verify that the attribute group was created, which is
   unnecessary; sysfs_remove_group() can be called even when
   sysfs_create_group() fails.
 - Replaced pr_err() with dev_err() as suggested by G. Kroah-Hartman.
 - Shortened the error path comment in vmbus_add_channel_kobj().
 - Updated the commit message.

Changes in v5:
 - Added the “bool sysfs_group_ready” field to vmbus_channel.
 - Added the “vmbus_remove_channel_attr_group()” function which calls
   "sysfs_remove_group()".
 - Added a comment to "vmbus_add_channel_kobj()" to describe how the
   empty directory is removed if "sysfs_create_group()" returns an
   error.
 - Updated the commit message.

NOTE: “.default_attrs” must be removed from vmbus_chan_ktype in order to
use the is_visible() function because "default_attrs" is an array of
attributes, not an attribute_group.

Changes in v4:
 - Added “is_visible()” callback functions for the device-level and
   channel-level attribute groups.
 - Removed the separate monitor attribute groups proposed in v3. They’re
   no longer needed because the “is_visible()” callbacks are used to
   determine the attribute visibility.
 - Removed "default_attributes" from "vmbus_chan_attrs" and created a
   channel-level attribute group.
 - Removed the "kobject_put(kobj)" call proposed in v3. The calling
   functions take care of calling "kobject_put(channel->kobj)" if an
   error is returned by "vmbus_add_channel_kobj()".
 - Updated the commit message and subject for clarity and to reflect the
   new changes in v4.

Changes in v3:
 - The monitor "_show" functions no longer return an error when a
   channel does not use the monitor page mechanism. Instead, the monitor
   page sysfs files are created only when a channel uses the monitor
   page mechanism. This change was suggested by G. Kroah-Hartman.

Note: this patch was originally patch 2/2 in a patchset. Patch 1/2 has
already been added to char-misc-testing, so I'm not resending it.

Changes in v2:
 - Changed the return value for cases where monitor_allocated is not set
   to "-EINVAL".
 - Updated the commit message to provide more details about the monitor
   page mechanism.
 - Updated the sysfs documentation to describe the new return value.

I've queued it up for hyperv-fixes, thanks Kimberly.

Should this go in stable as well?

My take:  these changes lean more toward being a "clean up" rather
than fixing a problem that has significant impact.  The data in the sysfs
entries is bogus, but isn't actually hurting anything. The current code does
index off the end of an array in some cases, but the accesses are reads
and there's plenty of padding so that actually making an invalid memory
reference won't happen.   In the interest of reducing churn in the
stable branches, I would lean toward *not* backporting this to stable.
