Discussion:
[PATCH v2 0/8] mm/memory_hotplug: allow to specify a default online_type
(too old to reply)

Distributions nowadays use udev rules ([1] [2]) to specify if and
how to online hotplugged memory. The rules seem to get more complex with
many special cases. Due to the various special cases,
CONFIG_MEMORY_HOTPLUG_DEFAULT_ONLINE cannot be used. All memory hotplug
is handled via udev rules.

Everytime we hotplug memory, the udev rule will come to the same
conclusion. Especially Hyper-V (but also soon virtio-mem) add a lot of
memory in separate memory blocks and wait for memory to get onlined by user
space before continuing to add more memory blocks (to not add memory faster
than it is getting onlined). This of course slows down the whole memory
hotplug process.

To make the job of distributions easier and to avoid udev rules that get
more and more complicated, let's extend the mechanism provided by
- /sys/devices/system/memory/auto_online_blocks
- "memhp_default_state=" on the kernel cmdline
to be able to specify also "online_movable" as well as "online_kernel"

v1 -> v2:
- Tweaked some patch descriptions
- Added
-- "powernv/memtrace: always online added memory blocks"
-- "hv_balloon: don't check for memhp_auto_online manually"
-- "mm/memory_hotplug: unexport memhp_auto_online"
- "mm/memory_hotplug: convert memhp_auto_online to store an online_type"
-- No longer touches hv/memtrace code


=== Example /usr/libexec/config-memhotplug ===

#!/bin/bash

VIRT=`systemd-detect-virt --vm`
ARCH=`uname -p`

sense_virtio_mem() {

fi

echo "Selected online_type:" $ONLINE_TYPE

# Configure what to do with memory that will be hotplugged in the future
echo $ONLINE_TYPE 2>/dev/null > /sys/devices/system/memory/auto_online_blocks
if [ $? != "0" ]; then
echo "Memory hotplug cannot be configured (e.g., old kernel or missing permissions)"

The name is misleading and it's not really clear what is "kept". Let's just
name it like the online_type name we expose to user space ("online").

Add some documentation to the types.

Historically, we used the value -1. Just treat 0 as the special
case now. Clarify a comment (which was wrong, when we come via
device_online() the first time, the online_type would have been 0 /
MEM_ONLINE). The default is now always MMOP_OFFLINE. This removes the
last user of the manual "-1", which didn't use the enum value.

This is a preparation to use the online_type as an array index.

Let's use a simple array which we can reuse soon. While at it, move the
string->mmop conversion out of the device hotplug lock.

We get the MEM_ONLINE notifier call if memory is added right from the
kernel via add_memory() or later from user space.

Let's get rid of the "ha_waiting" flag - the wait event has an inbuilt
mechanism (->done) for that. Initialize the wait event only once and
reinitialize before adding memory. Unconditionally call complete() and
wait_for_completion_timeout().

If there are no waiters, complete() will only increment ->done - which
will be reset by reinit_completion(). If complete() has already been
called, wait_for_completion_timeout() will not wait.

There is still the chance for a small race between concurrent
reinit_completion() and complete(). If complete() wins, we would not
wait - which is tolerable (and the race exists in current code as well).

Note: We only wait for "some" memory to get onlined, which seems to be
good enough for now.

How can we see concurent reinit_completion() and complete()? Obvioulsy,
we are not onlining new memory in kernel and hv_mem_hot_add() calls are
serialized, we're waiting up to 5*HZ for the added block to come online
before proceeding to the next one. Or do you mean we actually hit this
5*HZ timeout, proceeded to the next block and immediately after
reinit_completion() we saw complete() for the previously added block?
This is tolerable indeed, we're making forward progress (and this all is
'best effort' anyway).

5*HZ timeout, proceeded to the next block and immediately after
reinit_completion() we saw complete() for the previously added block?
Yes exactly - or if an admin manually offlines+re-onlines a random
memory block.

This is tolerable indeed, we're making forward progress (and this all is
'best effort' anyway).
Exactly my thoughts.

Let's always try to online the re-added memory blocks. In case add_memory()
already onlined the added memory blocks, the first device_online() call
will fail and stop processing the remaining memory blocks.

This avoids manually having to check memhp_auto_online.

Note: PPC always onlines all hotplugged memory directly from the kernel
as well - something that is handled by user space on other
architectures.

For now, distributions implement advanced udev rules to essentially
- Don't online any hotplugged memory (s390x)
- Online all memory to ZONE_NORMAL (e.g., most virt environments like
hyperv)
- Online all memory to ZONE_MOVABLE in case the zone imbalance is taken
care of (e.g., bare metal, special virt environments)

In summary: All memory is usually onlined the same way, however, the
kernel always has to ask user space to come up with the same answer.
E.g., Hyper-V always waits for a memory block to get onlined before
continuing, otherwise it might end up adding memory faster than
hotplugging it, which can result in strange OOM situations. This waiting
slows down adding of a bigger amount of memory.

Let's allow to specify a default online_type, not just "online" and
"offline". This allows distributions to configure the default online_type
when booting up and be done with it.

We can now specify "offline", "online", "online_movable" and
"online_kernel" via
- "memhp_default_state=" on the kernel cmdline
- /sys/devices/system/memory/auto_online_blocks
just like we are able to specify for a single memory block via
/sys/devices/system/memory/memoryX/state

Quite contrary, so feel free to add
