      tcp: adjust rto_base in retransmits_timed_out() · 3256a2d6
      Eric Dumazet authored
      The cited commit exposed an old retransmits_timed_out() bug
      which assumed it could call tcp_model_timeout() with
      TCP_RTO_MIN as rto_base for all states.
      But flows in SYN_SENT or SYN_RECV state uses a different
      RTO base (1 sec instead of 200 ms, unless BPF choses
      another value)
      This caused a reduction of SYN retransmits from 6 to 4 with
      the default /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_syn_retries value.
      Fixes: a41e8a88

      The QCA8K family supports up to 7 ports. So use the existing
      QCA8K_NUM_PORTS define to allocate the switch structure and limit all
      operations with the switch ports.
      This was not an issue until commit 0394a63a ("net: dsa: enable and

      are outside of the correct register range on this switch some registers
      were rewritten with invalid content.

      Merge branch 'hugepage-fallbacks' (hugepatch patches from David Rientjes) · edf445ad
      Linus Torvalds authored
      Merge hugepage allocation updates from David Rientjes:
       "We (mostly Linus, Andrea, and myself) have been discussing offlist how
        to implement a sane default allocation strategy for hugepages on NUMA
        With these reverts in place, the page allocator will happily allocate
        a remote hugepage immediately rather than try to make a local hugepage
        available. This incurs a substantial performance degradation when
        memory compaction would have otherwise made a local hugepage
        This series reverts those reverts and attempts to propose a more sane
        default allocation strategy specifically for hugepages. Andrea
        acknowledges this is likely to fix the swap storms that he originally
        reported that resulted in the patches that removed __GFP_THISNODE from
        hugepage allocations.
        The immediate goal is to return 5.3 to the behavior the kernel has
        implemented over the past several years so that remote hugepages are
        not immediately allocated when local hugepages could have been made
        available because the increased access latency is untenable.
        The next goal is to introduce a sane default allocation strategy for
        hugepages allocations in general regardless of the configuration of
        the system so that we prevent thrashing of local memory when
        compaction is unlikely to succeed and can prefer remote hugepages over
        remote native pages when the local node is low on memory."
      Note on timing: this reverts the hugepage VM behavior changes that got
      introduced fairly late in the 5.3 cycle, and that fixed a huge
      performance regression for certain loads that had been around since
      Andrea had this note:
       "The regression of 4.18 was that it was taking hours to start a VM
        where 3.10 was only taking a few seconds, I reported all the details
        on lkml when it was finally tracked down in August 2018.
        __GFP_THISNODE in MADV_HUGEPAGE made the above enterprise vfio
        workload degrade like in the "current upstream" above. And it still
        would have been that bad as above until 5.3-rc5"
      where the bad behavior ends up happening as you fill up a local node,
      and without that change, you'd get into the nasty swap storm behavior
      due to compaction working overtime to make room for more memory on the
      As a result 5.3 got the two performance fix reverts in rc5.
      However, David Rientjes then noted that those performance fixes in turn
      regressed performance for other loads - although not quite to the same
      degree.  He suggested reverting the reverts and instead replacing them
      with two small changes to how hugepage allocations are done (patch
      descriptions rephrased by me):
       - "avoid expensive reclaim when compaction may not succeed": just admit
         that the allocation failed when you're trying to allocate a huge-page
         and compaction wasn't successful.
       - "allow hugepage fallback to remote nodes when madvised": when that
         node-local huge-page allocation failed, retry without forcing the
         local node.
      but by then I judged it too late to replace the fixes for a 5.3 release.
      So 5.3 was released with behavior that harked back to the pre-4.18 logic.
      But now we're in the merge window for 5.4, and we can see if this
      alternate model fixes not just the horrendous swap storm behavior, but
      also restores the performance regression that the late reverts caused.
      Fingers crossed.

      mm, page_alloc: allow hugepage fallback to remote nodes when madvised · 76e654cc
      David Rientjes authored
      For systems configured to always try hard to allocate transparent
      hugepages (thp defrag setting of "always") or for memory that has been
      explicitly madvised to MADV_HUGEPAGE, it is often better to fallback to
      remote memory to allocate the hugepage if the local allocation fails
      The point is to allow the initial call to __alloc_pages_node() to attempt
      to defragment local memory to make a hugepage available, if possible,
      rather than immediately fallback to remote memory.  Local hugepages will
      always have a better access latency than remote (huge)pages, so an attempt
      to make a hugepage available locally is always preferred.
      If memory compaction cannot be successful locally, however, it is likely
      better to fallback to remote memory.  This could take on two forms: either
      allow immediate fallback to remote memory or do per-zone watermark checks.
      It would be possible to fallback only when per-zone watermarks fail for
      order-0 memory, since that would require local reclaim for all subsequent
      faults so remote huge allocation is likely better than thrashing the local
      zone for large workloads.
      In this case, it is assumed that because the system is configured to try
      hard to allocate hugepages or the vma is advised to explicitly want to try
      hard for hugepages that remote allocation is better when local allocation
      and memory compaction have both failed.
