Hi Peter,

Looking at the code of sched_getparam() and sched_setscheduler() (to
see what might need to land in the man pagea with respect to
SCHED_DEADLINE changes), I see that the former fails (EINVAL) if the
target is a SCHED_DEADLINE process, while the latter succeeds
(returning SCHED_DEADLINE).

The sched_setscheduler() seems fine, but what's the rationale for
having sched_getparam() fail in this case, rather than just returning
a sched_priority of zero (since sched_priority is in any case unused,
as for SCHED_OTHER, right)? My point is that the change seems to
needlessly break applications that employ sched_getparam(). Maybe I am
missing something...

Cheers,

Michael

s/setscheduler/getscheduler/ ?

I'm a proponent of fail hard instead of fail silently and muddle on.

And while we can fully and correctly return sched_getscheduler() we
cannot do so for sched_getparam().

Returning sched_param::sched_priority == 0 for DEADLINE would also break
the symmetry between sched_setparam() and sched_getparam(), both will
fail for SCHED_DEADLINE.

Maybe. But there seems to me to be a problem with your logic here.
(And the symmetry argument seems a weak one to me.)

I mean, applications that are currently using sched_getscheduler()
will now get back a new policy (SCHED_DEADLINE) that they may not
understand, and so they may break.

On the other hand, applications that call sched_getparam() will fail
with EINVAL, even though sched_priority has no meaning for
SCHED_DEADLINE (as for the non-real-time policies), and so it would
seem to be harmless to succeed and return a sched_priority of 0 in
this case. It seems to break user-space needlessly, IMHO.

If anything, I'd have said it would have made more sense to have the
sched_getscheduler() case fail, while having the sched_getparam() case
succeed. (But, I can see the argument for having _both_ cases
succeed.)

Cheers,

Michael

Hmm,.. maybe. Can we still change this? Again, maybe, there's not really
that much userspace that relies on this.

In any case, the way I read the little there is on getparam() it seems
to imply the only case where it does make sense to call it at all is
when sched_getscheduler() returns either SCHED_FIFO or SCHED_RR.

And in that sense I suppose the precedent for all other currently
available classes to not fail the param call but return 0 should be
extended.

If only we'd started out with sched_yield()/sched_getparam() etc failing
when not !SCHED_FIFO/RR :-)

I think the sched_getparam() change is worthwhile (and the patches 
could (should?) be marked for -stable). I suspect there's no user
space that relies on the current SCHED_DEADLINE behavior, and it's 
worth avoiding the above breakage for sched_getparam(). I'd be 
inclined to leave sched_getscheduler() as is: there's arguments 
either way for how it should behave.

peter_zijlstra-sched-change_sched_getparam_behaviour_vs_sched_deadline

The way we read POSIX one should only call sched_getparam() when
sched_getscheduler() returns either SCHED_FIFO or SCHED_RR.

Given that we currently return sched_param::sched_priority=0 for all
others, extend the same behaviour to SCHED_DEADLINE.

sched/deadline: Change sched_getparam() behaviour vs SCHED_DEADLINE

The way we read POSIX one should only call sched_getparam() when
sched_getscheduler() returns either SCHED_FIFO or SCHED_RR.

Given that we currently return sched_param::sched_priority=0 for all
others, extend the same behaviour to SCHED_DEADLINE.

Seems reasonable to me.
