Subject: [PATCH 1/2] KVM: Block memslot updates across range_start() and range_end()
Date: Tue, 27 Jul 2021 13:18:07 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210727171808.1645060-2-pbonzini@redhat.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210727171808.1645060-1-pbonzini@redhat.com>

We would like to avoid taking mmu_lock for .invalidate_range_{start,end}()
notifications that are unrelated to KVM.  Because mmu_notifier_count
must be modified while holding mmu_lock for write, and must always
be paired across start->end to stay balanced, lock elision must
happen in both or none.  Therefore, in preparation for this change,
this patch prevents memslot updates across range_start() and range_end().

Note, technically flag-only memslot updates could be allowed in parallel,
but stalling a memslot update for a relatively short amount of time is
not a scalability issue, and this is all more than complex enough.

A long note on the locking: a previous version of the patch used an rwsem
to block the memslot update while the MMU notifier run, but this resulted
in the following deadlock involving the pseudo-lock tagged as
"mmu_notifier_invalidate_range_start".

   ======================================================
   WARNING: possible circular locking dependency detected
   5.12.0-rc3+ #6 Tainted: G           OE
   ------------------------------------------------------
   qemu-system-x86/3069 is trying to acquire lock:
   ffffffff9c775ca0 (mmu_notifier_invalidate_range_start){+.+.}-{0:0}, at: __mmu_notifier_invalidate_range_end+0x5/0x190

   but task is already holding lock:
   ffffaff7410a9160 (&kvm->mmu_notifier_slots_lock){.+.+}-{3:3}, at: kvm_mmu_notifier_invalidate_range_start+0x36d/0x4f0 [kvm]

   which lock already depends on the new lock.

This corresponds to the following MMU notifier logic:

    invalidate_range_start
      take pseudo lock
      down_read()           (*)
      release pseudo lock
    invalidate_range_end
      take pseudo lock      (**)
      up_read()
      release pseudo lock

At point (*) we take the mmu_notifiers_slots_lock inside the pseudo lock;
at point (**) we take the pseudo lock inside the mmu_notifiers_slots_lock.

This could cause a deadlock (ignoring for a second that the pseudo lock
is not a lock):

- invalidate_range_start waits on down_read(), because the rwsem is
held by install_new_memslots

- install_new_memslots waits on down_write(), because the rwsem is
held till (another) invalidate_range_end finishes

- invalidate_range_end sits waits on the pseudo lock, held by
invalidate_range_start.

Removing the fairness of the rwsem breaks the cycle (in lockdep terms,
it would change the *shared* rwsem readers into *shared recursive*
readers), so open-code the wait using a readers count and a
spinlock.  This also allows handling blockable and non-blockable
critical section in the same way.

Losing the rwsem fairness does theoretically allow MMU notifiers to
block install_new_memslots forever.  Note that mm/mmu_notifier.c's own
retry scheme in mmu_interval_read_begin also uses wait/wake_up
and is likewise not fair.
