HyperThreading appears to work properly in vanilla 2.4.x, but fails to
initialize the sibling CPUs in 2.4.x-ac. The problem appears to be in
improper indexing by physical vs. logical CPU numbers.

in smpboot.c (in smp_boot_cpus):

Dprintk("CPU present map: %lx\n", phys_cpu_present_map);
cpu = 1;
for (bit = 0; bit < NR_CPUS; bit++) {
...
phys_apicid = raw_phys_apicid[bit];
...
if ((cpu_to_physical_apicid(bit) == BAD_APICID) &&
...

in mpparse.c (in MP_processor_info):

raw_phys_apicid[num_processors - 1] = m->mpc_apicid;

Booting with HT and some debugging enabled yields:

...
LAPIC (acpi_id[0x0000] id[0x0] enabled[1])
CPU 0 (0x0000) enabledProcessor #0 Pentium 4(tm) XEON(tm) APIC version 16
LAPIC (acpi_id[0x0001] id[0x6] enabled[1])
CPU 1 (0x0600) enabledProcessor #6 Pentium 4(tm) XEON(tm) APIC version 16
LAPIC (acpi_id[0x0002] id[0x1] enabled[1])
CPU 2 (0x0100) enabledProcessor #1 Pentium 4(tm) XEON(tm) APIC version 16
LAPIC (acpi_id[0x0003] id[0x7] enabled[1])
CPU 3 (0x0700) enabledProcessor #7 Pentium 4(tm) XEON(tm) APIC version 16
...
CPU present map: c3
...

The processors appear to have physical IDs 0, 1, 6, 7. raw_phys_apicid[] gets
filled at indexes 0-4, but when the kernel tries to boot the CPUs, it queries
it with physical indexes 0, 1, 6, 7 and loses. I'm not sure exactly what the
correct way to fix this is. (a quick hack to raw_phys_apicid does get all 4
CPUs up and apparently working though)

There appear to be other areas where holes in the physical IDs will cause
problems (things fill indexes by a logical cpu number and index later by
physical ID, or the other way around).

Example: following booting a cpu, the check to see if it booted checks
cpu_to_physical_apicid(bit) where bit is the physical cpu id in the map, but
the table it's checking is indexed by logical cpu number.

Thanks. Can you verify 2.4.21-pre1 is ok. That has the latest and
greatest code in these areas and code -ac will drop its development
atuff for. If 2.4.21-pre1 works all is cool, if not it would be very
good to know early on

hello,
I am trying to detect layouts of the RAID configuration (I have a
software RAID set up. ) Mine is currently left symmetric and the way I am
trying to detect layout is to reaad consecutive blocks and look for
whether there is a big dp when it has to move all the way across..

there seems to be no such thing. e.g.

1 2 3 P
5 6 P 4
9 P 7 8
P 10 11 12

should show some timing difference when block 5 is read - i get an
exponentially decreasing curve !

any ideas? or other newsgroups i can hit

What exactly do you mean by "move all the way across"?
The only things that move are the drive which spins and the heads
which move back and forth.

I suspect that the way to detect differences in layout is to do lots
of random reads of different block sizes and look for different
throughput.

You can see where __write_trylock is defined as a global entry point
twice.

Unfortunately, I'm not knowledgeable enough about sparc assembler to
be able to fix this correctly.

Please cc me directly, as I'm no longer on LKML.

Thanks,

That's correct, it's needed even in Linus's tree for the sake
of preempt support on SMP.

Does this fix it?
Now there's a different problem...

Error: local label '"100" (instance number 1 of a fb label)'
is not defined

Should I try to grab a different -test9 bk version out of
Linus' tree?

If so, where would I look -- i've not been keeping up with
the bk info/requirements

Ah, sorry. This incremental patch should fix that up.

Thanks. The patch cleaned up the rwlock.S issue.

Now I just need to hunt down the following problem. :-)
