This series removes "select ARCH_USES_GETTIMEOFFSET" from arch/m68k
and converts users of arch_gettimeoffset to the clocksource API.
Various bugs are fixed along the way.

Those platforms which do not actually implement arch_gettimeoffset
(apollo, q40, sun3, sun3x) use the "jiffies" clocksource by default.

More testing and code review would be appreciated.

Implementations of arch_gettimeoffset are generally not re-entrant
and assume that interrupts have been disabled. Unfortunately this
pre-condition got broken in v2.6.32.

This resolves some bugs that affect VIA timer counter accesses.
Firstly, keep track of lost interrupts caused by reading the counter.
Secondly, check for inconsistent results when reading the counter.
Finally, make allowance for the fact that the counter will be
decremented to 0xFFFF before being reloaded.

This looks like a sensible fix for -stable backporting.  But with m68k
converted over it might be time for these two arm platforms to either
be converted to the clocksource API or to be dropped..

In addition, won't this lead to "function defined statically but not called'

It means that all platforms have to use the 'jiffies' clocksource.

At the end of the series, only apollo, q40, sun3 & sun3x continue to use 
that clocksource.

I expect so. I haven't compile-tested each step in the series; but I'll do 
that before I send v2. Thanks for the reminder.

There are no new warnings at the end of the series.

It's certainly possible. Is it better? It sounds like a question about the 
cost of wrap-around in the clocksource core vs. the cost of 64-bit 
additions in the arch code.

Looking at __clocksource_update_freq_scale() there are some consequences 
to choosing a 32-bit mask --

                 * For clocksources which have a mask > 32-bit
                 * we need to limit the max sleep time to have a good
                 * conversion precision.

I don't know the answer, sorry.

No need for local_irq_save() here. Interrupt handlers are guaranteed to be
called with interrupts disabled.

Looking at the read function below, I assume that this magic 0xfff42008
register counts up to PCC_TIMER_CYCLES, which triggers the timer interrupt
and then starts from 0 again. And looking at the programming manual
actually confirms that assumption (COC is set in the control reg).

There is a problem with that approach. Assume the following situation:

				Counter value (HZ = 100)
       local_irq_disable()	
       ...
       ktime_get()		9999
       ....			10000 -> 0 (interrupt is triggered)
       ktime_get()		1

IOW, time goes backwards.

There are two ways to solve that:

 1) Take the overflow bits in the timer control register into account,
    which makes time readout even slower because you need to do it like
    this:

    do {
       ovfl = read(TCR1);
       now = read(TCNT1);
    while (ovfl != read(TCR1));
    ....
  

 2) Use Timer2 in freerunning mode which means it will use the full 32bit
    and then wrap back to 0. That's fine and the clocksource core handles
    that.

    That removes the clk_total thing and just works.

Thanks,

	tglx

That's not the case on m68k, as I understand it. However, the CPU 
interrupt level does prevent interrupt handlers from nesting.

Yes. It's not a new problem. I think hp300 and mvme147 have similar 
issues.

If the clocksource core is badly affected by this problem then I'll have 
to address it.

How about,

	local_irq_save(flags);
	ovfl = read(TCR1);
	now = read(TCNT1);
	if (ovfl != read(TCR1))
		now = read(TCNT1);

	ticks = clk_total + now;
	offset = (ovfl >> 4) * PCC_TIMER_CYCLES;
	local_irq_restore(flags);

	return offset + ticks;

This has to be synchronized with the interrupt handler because the 
interrupt handler must clear the overflow counter in TCR1 when it does 
clk_total += PCC_TIMER_CYCLES;

BTW, there are some synchronization bugs in this patch series that will be 
addressed in the next submission. They have been fixed in my github repo.

I really like this suggestion!

But I fear it is a change that cannot be checked by inspection. If I wrote 
it, I'd want to test it, or have someone else test it. (Stephen?)

I wonder if there exists an emulator for MVME 162/166/167/172/177 machines 
capable of booting Linux...

So all that happens is timer granularity drops to 10ms, then gets 
restored by the later patches?

I doubt that would be a large enough regression to matter for bisection, 
but the way you reuse the arch_gettimeoffset() code for the new 
read_clock() functions makes reordering of this patch to the end of the 
series impossible.

Best you can don, under the circumstances.

Cheers,

	Michael

Yes, that was the plan, but I can't confirm that it worked out as I don't 
have any physical 68k hardware in front of me right now. If you can 
confirm this on your Atari Falcon, that would be great.

(It appears that a QEMU-emulated Mac does not benefit from having a 
clocksource that's more accurate than the 'jiffies' clocksource, in spite 
of "clocksource: Switched to clocksource via1".)

You could remove the old arch_gettimeoffset API without dropping any 
platforms.

If no-one converts a given platform to the clocksource API it would mean 
that the default 'jiffies' clocksource will get used on that platform.

Clock resolution and timer precision would be degraded, but that might not 
matter.

Anyway, if someone who has this hardware is willing to test a clocksource 
API conversion, they can let me know and I'll attempt that patch.

With the current code, kernel log timestamps have 10 ms resolution on 
Atari. Time resolution of times reported by initcall_debug is roughly 40 
us. I'd expect that changes with falling back to jiffies only. Might be 
worth a try on QEMU Mac.

The initcall debug output shows the same precision as my earlier tests 
with userland. The VIA timer only gets updated when QEMU wants to update 
it, which seems to be about every 9765 us. Hence, using the 'jiffies' 
clocksource would be effectively no regression for a virtual Mac.

Running a recent kernel under ARAnyM shows 40 ns resolution so the Atari 
hardware emulation is a little more complete.

Using that for initial tests, I can confirm that timer resolution is 
reduced to 10ms after patch 6, and gets restored to 40ns after applying 
the full series (once clocksource_init runs, that is - the first part of 
the boot is at 10ms resolution only, a regression compared to with use 
of arch_gettimeoffset).

Unfortunately, I can't log in at the console with all patches applied. I 
immediately get the 'login timeout exceeded' message. Weird...

Cheers,

	Michael

There's reasons why that's not appropriate - such as not having two
separate timers in order to supply a clocksource and separate clock
event.

Not all hardware is suited to the clocksource + clockevent idea.

Sorry, I don't follow.

AFAIK, clocksources and clock event devices are orthogonal concepts. There 
are platforms with !ARCH_USES_GETTIMEOFFSET && !GENERIC_CLOCKEVENTS (and 
every other combination).

A clocksource read method just provides a cycle count, and in this sense 
arch_gettimeoffset() is equivalent to a clocksource.

If these two arm platforms have an existing clock event device which 
somehow precludes any new clocksources, why doesn't that also render 
arch_gettimeoffset() impossible?

What I mean by that is, the interrupt level (IPL) prevents interrupt 
handlers from being re-entered. But a handler can still get interrupted by 
a higher priority interrupt request. In the past I've had to add defensive 
locking because of this.

In these patches I've assumed it was possible for some higher priority 
interrupt handler to perform a clocksource read after the timer handler 
started executing. Hence the use of local_irq_save/restore.

To be sure, I've just run a quick test and confirmed that the timer 
handler can indeed get interrupted by the ethernet interrupt handler.

Urgh. Then you have more serious trouble. If the interrupting handler
calls any of the time accessor functions then you can actually live lock
when the interrupt happens in the middle of the write locked section of the
core timekeeping update. So you really want to disable interrupts across
the whole timer interrupt function or make sure that the timer interrupt is
the highest priority one on the system.

Sounds like a theoretical regression (?)

Is there any need for more precise timers (I mean, better than 40 us) 
before clocksource_init runs?

I didn't see that in my tests... Was this aranym or real hardware or both?

Does this apply to arch_gettimeoffset also? If so, that would mean another 
bug fix patch for -stable...

The timer interrupt priority isn't always what one would hope. 

But I can certainly disable interrupts for timer_interrupt() execution 
(that is, xtime_update() etc.)

A clocksource provides a cycle counter that monotonically changes and
does not wrap between clockevent events.

A clock event is responsible for providing events to the system when
some work is needing to be done, limited by the wrap interval of the
clocksource.

Each time the clock event triggers an interrupt, the clocksource is
read to determine how much time has passed, using:

	count = (new_value - old_value) & available_bits
	nanosecs = count * scale >> shift;

If you try to combine the clocksource and clockevent because you only
have a single counter, and the counter has the behaviour of:
- counting down towards zero
- when reaching zero, triggers an interrupt, and reloads with N

then this provides your clockevent, but you can't use this as a clock
source, because each time you receive an interrupt and try to read the
counter value, it will be approximately the same value.  This means
that the above calculation fails to register the correct number of
nanoseconds passing.  Hence, this does not work.

Also note where I said above that the clock event device must be able
to provide an interrupt _before_ the clocksource wraps - clearly with
such a timer, that is utterly impossible.

The simple solution is to not use such a counter as the clocksource,
which means you fall back to using the jiffies clocksource, and your
timekeeping has jiffy resolution - so 10ms, or possibly 1ms if you
want a 1kHz timer interval.  For most applications, that's simply way
to coarse, as was realised in the very early days of Linux.

If only there was a way to interpolate between timer interrupts...
which is exactly what arch_gettimeoffset() does, and is a historical
reminant of the pre-clocksource/clockevent days of the kernel - but
it is the only way to get better resolution from this sort of setup.

I don't think so, given that we can run just fine with 10 ms resolution.

ARAnyM only so far.

My tests were on c606b5cf902 in case it wasn't clear. I've now seen

That one does appear to work - different versions of ARAnyM, and 
different userland versions though. I'll test that again with the setup 
that saw c606b5cf902 fail.

So we'd still have to use jiffies + interpolation from the current timer 
rundown counter as clocksource (since that will be monotonous and won't 
wrap)?

The way Finn did the clocksource for m68k, the clocksource counter does 
behave as it should (monotonous, doesn't wrap) at least so far as I've 
tested. Using the same timer for clocksource and clock events will 
degrade timekeeping based on timer events to jiffies resolution, as you 
point out. That would already have been the case before, so no gain in 
resolution. Other timekeeping would have worked at higher resolution 
before (interpolating through arch_gettimeoffset) just the same as now 
(interpolating through clocksource reads). Finn's clocksource read code 
essentially is arch_gettimeoffset under a new name.

Are you saying that's not possible on arm, because the current timer 
rundown counter can't be read while the timer is running?

If I were to run a second timer at higher rate for clocksource, but 
keeping the 10 ms timer as clock event (could easily do that by using 
timer D on Atari Falcon) - how would that improve my timekeeping? Clock 
events still only happen 10 ms apart ...

Both of the platforms in question (RPC and EBSA110) have not 
defined(CONFIG_GENERIC_CLOCKEVENTS) and have not defined any struct 
clock_event_device, AFAICT.

So, even assuming that you're right about the limitations of single-timer 
platforms in general, removal of arch_gettimeoffset wouldn't require the 
removal of any platforms, AFAICT.

... and that is where you are wrong.

RPC, for example, has gettimeofday() resolution of 500ns.  Removing
gettimeoffset() will result in a resolution of 1/HZ since there is
no longer any interpolation between interrupts.

Where is this code - all I've seen is code adding IRQ exclusion in
the gettimeoffset method.  If some other solution is being proposed,
then it's no good beating about the bush - show the damn code, and
then that can be considered.

However, what has been said in this thread is basically "remove the
gettimeoffset method", which is _not_ acceptable, it will cause
gettimeofday() on these platforms to lose resolution, which is a
user visible REGRESSION, plain and simple.

If what is actually meant is "we have a replacement for gettimeoffset"
then, and I'm sure we all know this, there needs to be a patch
proposed showing what is being proposed, rather than waffling around
the issue.

Ah, I think you're talking about something else.

You seem to be talking about what happens when time keeping interrupts
happen.

I'm talking about the resolution of gettimeofday() and the other
interfaces that are used (eg) for packet capture timestamping and
the like - the _user_ visible effects of the timekeeping system.

With the existing implementation, all these have better-than-jiffy
resolution - in the case of RPC, that's 500ns, rather than 10ms
which would be the case without gettimeoffset().  Removing
gettimeoffset() as Finn has proposed without preserving that
resolution is simply completely unacceptable.

To me, it looks way worse than what you think.

The original code sequence before conversion to arch_gettimeoffset()
was:

1. lock (inc. disabling IRQs)
2. read gettimeoffset correction
3. add offset to current xtime
4. unlock

This means there is no chance for a timer interrupt to happen between
reading the current offset and adding it to the current kernel time.
If the timer does roll over, then the interrupt will remain pending,
so the whole "read offset and add to xtime" is one atomic block and
we can use the pending interrupt to indicate whether the timer has
rolled over and apply the appropriate offset correction.

With the arch_gettimeoffset() code, that changes:

1. read clocksource (which will be jiffies)
2. compute clocksource delta
3. increment nanoseconds
4. add gettimeoffset correction

If we receive a timer interrupt part-way through this, for example,
between 2 and 3, then jiffies will increment (via do_timer()) and the
interrupt will be cleared.  This means that the check in
ioc_timer_gettimeoffset() for a pending interrupt, for example, will
be false, and we will not know that an interrupt has happened.

So, unless I'm missing something, commit 5cfc8ee0bb51 well and truely
broke the accuracy of timekeeping on these platforms, and will result
in timekeeping spontaneously jumping backwards.  I had been wondering
why NTP had become less stable on EBSA110, but never investigated.

However, that still does not justify blowing away this functionality
without replacement, as Finn has been proposing.

Correct, because they don't use clockevents.  This is pre-clocksource,
pre-clockevent code, it uses the old timekeeping infrastructure,
which is xtime_update() and providing a gettimeoffset implementation.

I haven't proposed removing platforms.

I'm just objecting to the idea of removing arch_gettimeoffset(),
thereby causing a regression by changing the resolution of
gettimeofday() without any sign of equivalent functionality.

However, I now see (having searched mailing lists) what you are
trying to do - you have _not_ copied me or the mailing lists I'm
on with your cover message, so I'm *totally* lacking in the context
of your patch series, particularly where you are converting m68k
to use clocksources without needing the gettimeoffset() stuff.

You have failed to explain that in this thread - probably assuming
that I've read your cover message.  I haven't until now, because
you never sent it to me or the linux-arm-kernel mailing list.

I have found this thread _very_ frustrating, and frankly a waste of
my time discussing the finer points because of this lack of context.
Please ensure that if you're going to be sending a patch series,
that the cover message at least finds its way to the intended
audience of your patches, so that everyone has the context they
need when looking at (eg) the single patch they may receive.

Alternatively, if someone raises a problem with the patch, and you
_know_ you haven't done that, then please consider informing them
where they can get more context, eg, by providing a link to your
archived cover message.  It would help avoid misunderstandings.

Thanks.

Sorry for the lack of context.
The real trigger was also not explained in the cover message, and was a
the threat to remove platforms not using modern timekeeping APIs, cfr.

And naturally, because kernel developers are oh so great at
communication, that decision has been communicated to those
affected by it. *NOT*.

Clearly there is a need for much better communication.  We're
better at it when dealing with patches, but not when it comes to
physical meetings.

Maybe when some decision like "we're going to kill stuff still
using the old gettimeoffset API" then _someone_ needs to identify
which platforms are using that and make sure that those maintainers
know about that decision, much the same way that if a patch were
to touch the gettimeoffset API, we'd make damn sure that such a
patch went to those affected by the change.

Must be a quirk of ARAnyM 1.0.2 (or powerpc). With 0.9.15 on x86_64, 
it's fine.

I'm sufficiently convinced to try this on actual hardware now.

I agree - but Finn had also offered to supply patches to arm that would 
have added a clocksource_read() function very much like for those m68k 
platforms that had used gettimeoffset(). I wondered what reason there 
was for these not to work on arm

I now realize you'd never seen that offer.

The proposal to drop architectures still relying on arch_gettimeoffset() 
had been raising enough of a response on linux-m68k to make me conclude 
that same proposal had been kicked on to other arch MLs affected as 
well. I'm a bit naive that way.

Now your criticism of arch_gettimeoffset() (missing timer rollover 
because the timer interrupt has been cleared by the interrupt handler) 
still stands. I just can't find the offset() functions shown in the 
5cfc8ee0bb51 patch. Any hints?

Cheers,

     Michael

I offered to write a patch to add a clocksource to replace the 
arch_gettimeoffset functionality for RPC and EBSA110.

You even replied to that offer.

I did not propose degrading functionality while there is someone able to 
test modernization patches (assuming there is...).

Would you consider merging untested modernization patches for the 
arch_gettimeoffset API?

Sorry for any frustration I've caused you.

The thread went way off-topic when Christoph took the opportunity to 
suggest the removal of RPC and EBSA110. That doesn't interest me.

My interest remains API modernization. The actual patches I've sent are 
intended to modernize the clock API *without* degrading any functionality.

Could be a regression in aranym?

Maybe it's worth trying 0.9.15 on the powerpc host?

Well, it sort of works - I've seen one login timeout on the console 
under load (less than 10 seconds after typing in the password), but most 
attempts went OK. Couldn't log in through SSH without increasing fatal: 
Timeout before authenticationthe LoginGraceTime parameter though.

I usually get reliable login using ssh key files with the default 
setting of 120 seconds (takes around 90 to 100 seconds to complete). 
With your patch, even increasing this to 4800 doesn't result in reliable 
login.

The error I see in the logs is 'fatal: Timeout before authentication'.

Cheers,

	Michael

Weird. Let's try 2942e9fd3e57. Please send me your .config so I can send 
you a kernel binary. (I don't trust gcc 4.6 on m68k...)

I suspect that is the right solution - I've been trying to get 4.19
to boot on my RPC and it's proving very difficult for several reasons,
not limited to the HDD seeming to be throwing the odd disk error, as
well as the kernel being rather large (a 4.19 kernel is 2.7M compressed
as opposed to 2.6.29 being 1.2M compressed for the equivalent
configuration.)

Given that memory on the RPC is not contiguous, that probably means
an uncompressed kernel overflows the size of the first memory bank,
so there's probably no hope for modern kernels to boot on the machine.

The EBSA110 is probably in a similar boat - I don't remember whether it
had 16MB or 32MB as the maximal amount of memory, but memory was getting
tight with some kernels even running a minimalist userspace.

So, it's probably time to say goodbyte to the kernel support for these
platforms.

Your call.

Note that removing code from mainline won't help users obtain older, 
smaller, -stable kernel releases, free from the bug we were discussing. 
(The bug appeared in Linux v2.6.32.)

BTW, if you did want to boot Linux on a 16 MB system, you do have some 
options.

https://lwn.net/Articles/608945/
https://tiny.wiki.kernel.org/

Contributing to this kind of effort probably has value for IoT 
deployments. I suspect it also cuts a small amount of bloat from a large 
number of other Linux systems.

I boot 4.19 on a system with 14 MB RAM - 10 MB remain for user space 
once the kernel loads. After remote login, 4 MB of that remain free for 
buffers or user code (1.5 MB swapped).
That's with sysvinit - Christian tried to boot a systemd userland on his 
Falcon once, and ran out of memory before swap could be activated.

I shouldn't say 16 or 32 MB are hopeless. And the 2.6 kernels were a lot 
more sluggish to my recollection.

Cheers,

	Michael

arch_gettimeoffset() can be called from any context. The only interrupt
which can affect it is the timer interrupt. As m68k are all UP machines
this is not a problem because:

  ktime_get()
     do {
        seq = read_seqcount_begin(tk.seq);
	nsec = .... + arch_gettimeoffset();
     } while (seqcount_retry(tk.seq);

and the timer interrupt does:

  arch_timeoffset += value;
  ...
    xtime_update()
      ...
        write_seqcount_begin(tk.seq);
        ....
        write_seqcount_end(tk.seq);

So where ever the timer interrupt hits inside of ktime_get() or any other
accessor the seqcount will make it retry, so the result is always
consistent.

For SMP that would be a different story.

Oh yes, you should.
