Linux 5.3 was released on Sun, 15 Sep 2019.

Summary: This release includes support for AMD Navi GPUs; support for the umwait x86 instructions that let processes wait for short amounts of time without spinning loops; a 'utilization clamping' mechanism that is used to boost interactivity in the power-asymmetric CPUs used in phones; a new pidfd_open(2) system call that completes the work done to let users deal with the PID reuse problem; 16 millions of new IPv4 addresses in the 0.0.0.0/8 range are made available; support for Zhaoxin x86 CPUs; support Intel Speed Select for easier power selection in Xeon servers; and support for the lightweight hypervisor ACRN, built for embedded IoT devices. As always, there are many other new drivers and improvements.

1. Coolest features

1.1. New 'pidfd' functionality to help service managers to deal with PID reuse problems

To solve the issue of PID reuse in Unix systems, Linux 5.1 added the pidfd_send_signal(2), which let processes send signals to "pidfd" handles that are stable even after PID reuse. Linux 5.2 added the CLONE_PIDFD to clone(2), which let users to create PIDs that were usable with pidfd_send_signal(2). But there are many processes creates with fork() or clone() without CLONE_PIDFD, which can cause problems for the Android's low memory killer (LMK) or service managers such as systemd. To complete the functionality needed to deal with the PID reuse issue, this release adds the pidfd_open(2) syscall: It allows a caller to retrieve pollable pidfd's for a process which did not get created using the CLONE_PIDFD clone(2) flag.

Additionally, this release adds polling support for pidfds. This allows process managers to know when a (non-parent) process dies in a race-free way. The notification mechanism used follows the same logic that is currently used when the parent of a task is notified of a child's death. With this patchset it is possible to put pidfds in an {e}poll loop and get reliable notifications for process (i.e. thread-group) exit.

1.2. Utilization clamping support in the task scheduler

This release adds utilization clamping support to the task scheduler. This is a refinement of the energy aware scheduling framework for power-asymmetric systems (like ARM big.LITTLE) added in Linux 5.0. Utilization clamping is a mechanism that allows to enforce a minimum and/or maximum frequency range, depending on which tasks are currently active on a CPU. The main use-cases for utilization clamping are: a) boost tasks which are directly affecting the user experience by running them at least at a minimum "requested" frequency, b) cap low priority tasks not directly affecting the user experience by running them only up to a maximum "allowed" frequency. Per-task clamping attributes can be set through sched_setattr(2). This feature intends to replace the hacks that Android had developed to achieve the same result.

1.3. Support for AMD Navi GPUs

This release adds initial support for the AMD Navi GPUs in the amdgpu driver, these are the new AMD RX5700 GPUs that just recently became available. This released adds support for the core driver, displays (DCN2), GFX and compute (GFX10), System DMA (SDMA 5), Multimedia decode and encode (VCN2) and Power management.

1.4. Support for Zhaoxin x86 CPUs

This release adds support for Zhaoxin x86 Processors. Zhaoxin is a company created in 2013 as a joint venture between VIA Technologies and the Shanghai Municipal Government. The architecture of the ZX family of processors is a continuation of VIA's Centaur Technology x86-64 Isaiah design.

1.5. Support Intel Speed Select for easier power tuning

This release adds support for Intel Speed Select, a feature only supported on specific Xeon servers. It is a power management technology that lets users to configure their servers for throughput and per-core performance settings, allowing the prioritization of performance for certain workloads running on specific cores by sacrificing the performance of other cores.

1.6. Power efficient userspace waiting with the umwait x86 instructions

If an application needs to wait very short times they have to have a spinning loop, which consume power and hurt its thread siblings in a core with hyperthreads. This release enables userspace to use three new instructions that will be added to the upcoming Intel "Tremont" chips: umonitor, umwait and tpause; they let a userspace process wait for short amounts of time without spinning loops, thus letting applications to do those short waits spending less power and not impacting the performance of other hypertreads.

1.7. A few millions of new IPv4 addresses

This release contains a trivial, but impacting change: The 0.0.0.0/8 IPv4 range will be accepted by Linux (despite not being declared as such in standards) as a valid address range, allowing for 16 million new IPv4 addresses.

The IPv4 address space includes hundreds of millions of addresses reserved for obscure, or obsolete reasons, or for "future use". Instead of leaving these IP addresses unused, a IPv4 Cleanup Project has been have started to make them usable, generally. For more details, see this Potential IPv4 Unicast expansions talk.

1.8. Add the IoT ACRN supervisor

This release adds support of the ACRN hypervisor. ACRN is a flexible, lightweight reference hypervisor, built with real-time and safety-criticality in mind, optimized to streamline embedded development through an open source platform. It is built for embedded IoT with small footprint and real-time features. More details can be found in https://projectacrn.org/

2. Core (various)

  • (FEATURED) To solve the Unix design problem of PID reuse, Linux 5.1 added the pidfd_send_signal(2). Linux 5.2 added the CLONE_PIDFD to clone(2), which let users to create PIDs that were usable with pidfd_send_signal(2). But there are many processes creates with fork() or clone() without CLONE_PIDFD, which can cause problems for the Android's low memory killer (LMK) or service managers such as systemd. This release adds the pidfd_open(2) syscall: It allows a caller to retrieve pollable pidfd's for a process which did not get created using the CLONE_PIDFD clone(2) flag commit, commit, commit

  • (FEATURED) Adds polling support for pidfds. This allows process managers to know when a (non-parent) process dies in a race-free way. The notification mechanism used follows the same logic that is currently used when the parent of a task is notified of a child's death. With this patchset it is possible to put pidfds in an {e}poll loop and get reliable notifications for process (i.e. thread-group) exit commit, commit

  • io_uring
    • Add support for recvmsg() commit

    • Add support for sendmsg() commit

    • Handle generic short reads automatically. This can happen fairly easily if parts of the buffered read is cached. Since the application needs to issue another request for the remainder, just do this internally and save kernel/user round trip while providing a nicer more robust API commit

    • Add support for Submission Queue Entry links. This allows Submission Queue Entries to depend on each other, enabling an application to eg queue a read-from-this-file,write-to-that-file pair commit

  • firmware: Add support for loading compressed firmware files. Currently the files in /lib/firmware counts up to 419MB, while they can be reduced to 130MB by file compression. Currently only XZ format is supported commit

  • Fixes for major copy_file_range() issues: Now the system call will actually check its range parameters correctly; refuse to copy into files for which the caller does not have sufficient privileges; update mtime and strip setuid like file writes are supposed to do; and allows copying up to the EOF of the source file instead of failing the call like we used to. Also, implement permitting filesystems to copy across devices commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit

  • The clone() syscall has no space for new flags, so a replacement with space for more flags has been added. Recommended LWN article, commit, commit, commit

  • Task scheduler
    • (FEATURED) Add utilization clamping support. This is a refinement of the energy aware scheduling framework for power-asymmetric systems added in Linux 5.0 with support for boosting of interactive and capping of background workloads: to make sure critical GUI threads get maximum frequency ASAP, and to make sure background processing doesn't unnecessarily move to cpufreq governor to higher frequencies and less energy efficient CPU modes commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit

    • Add new tracepoints required for energy-aware scheduling testing commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit

  • console: Automatically choose a bigger font for high resolution screens commit

  • Remove "rootfs" from /proc/filesystems commit

  • ptrace: add PTRACE_GET_SYSCALL_INFO request to lets ptracer obtain details of the syscall the tracee is blocked in. There are two reasons for a special syscall-related ptrace request. Firstly, with the current ptrace API there are cases when ptracer cannot retrieve necessary information about syscalls. Second, ptracers also have to support a lot of arch-specific code for obtaining information about the tracee. strace 4.26 has been adapted to use this API commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit

  • locking
    • Part 2 of rwsem scalability improvements, which drastically improve the performance of this locking primitive. There is a lot of changes that makes it similar to qrwlock, including owner handoff for more fair locking commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit

    • Enable elimination of Tree-RCU softirq processing with kernel boot parameter rcutree.use_softirq. If set to zero, it moves all RCU_SOFTIRQ processing to per-CPU rcuc kthreads commit

  • Introduce CONFIG_PREEMPT_RT as a clear sign that the RT patchset will be fully integrated into the mainline kernel in the future merge

  • Adds a kernel parameter, kprobe_event to add and enable new kprobe events at boot time. The syntax is similar to tracing/kprobe_events interface but using ',' ';' instead of ' ' and '\n'. e.g. kprobe_event=p,func1,$arg1,$arg2;p,func2,$arg1 will add probes on func1 with the 1st and the 2nd arguments and on func2 with the 1st argument commit, commit

  • vmcore: add a kernel parameter novmcoredd, which disables device dump commit

  • Consolidation of the per-architecture vDSO code into a generic library, and conversion of x86 and ARM64 to it (others architectures will follow in the future). Besides the benefits of code reuse, the architectures arm64, compat arm64, arm and mips will gain support for CLOCK_BOOTTIME and CLOCK_TAI commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit

  • kbuild
  • GDB scripts
    • Add helpers to find and list devices commit

    • Add lx-genpd-summary command commit

    • Add an script to parse the ABI files commit

  • jump labels: optimize the case in which a static key has more than one entry commit, commit, commit, commit, commit

  • debugobjects: Try to reduce the level of contention on the global lock used by the debug objects code, which causes a lot of contention commit, commit, commit, commit, commit

  • binfmt_flat: make support for old format binaries optional commit

3. File systems

  • XFS
    • Introduce new BULKSTAT and INUMBERS ioctls. They report features in the v5 file system format, such as inode birth time and the ability to do per-AG BULKSTAT and INUMBERS. The new structures fix the alignment and padding issues that plague the old ioctls. In xfsprogs, some wrapper functions will be introduced that allow new utilities to run on old kernels by emulating the new functionality commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit

    • The beginnings of multithreaded inode walks (e.g. quotacheck) commit

    • Implement cgroup aware writeback commit

  • Btrfs
    • Detect fast implementation of crc32c on all architectures commit

  • ext4
    • Enforce the immutable flag on open files commit

    • Allow directory holes commit

  • Ceph
  • CIFS
    • smbdirect no longer experimental commit

    • Add SMB3.1.1 GCM to negotiated crypto algorigthms commit

    • Add new mount option to retrieve mode from special ACE commit

    • Improve performance of POSIX open by querying inode number on open via create context commit

    • Allow query of symlinks stored as reparse points commit

    • Optimize open to not send query file internal info commit

  • F2FS
    • Add option to limit required GC for checkpoint=disable commit

    • Add ioctl for removing a range from F2FS commit

    • Support swap file w/ DIO commit

    • Allow all the users to pin a file commit

    • Allocate blocks for pinned file commit

  • NFS
    • Allow NFS client to set up multiple TCP connections to the server using a new 'nconnect=X' mount option. Queue length is used to balance load commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit

    • Use sysfs in conjunction with the udev daemon to allow the client to run a configuration script to automatically set the NFSv4 client identifier on first use commit, commit, commit

    • Expose information about NFSv4 state held by knfsd on behalf of NFSv4 clients. This especially important for opens, which are currently invisible to userspace on the server, unlike locks (/proc/locks) and local processes' opens (under /proc/<pid>/). The approach is to add a new directory /proc/fs/nfsd/clients/ with subdirectories for each active NFSv4 client. Each subdirectory has an "info" file with some basic information to help identify the client and a "states" directory that lists the open state held by that client commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit

  • UBIFS
    • Add support for zstd compression commit

    • Support offline signed images commit

  • OCFS2
    • Add locking filter debugfs file commit

  • CODA
    • Add hinting support for partial file caching commit

  • AFS
    • Add support for the UAE error table commit

4. Memory management

  • dma-buf: give each buffer a full-fledged inode. By traversing /proc/*/fd and /proc/*/map_files, processes with CAP_ADMIN can get a lot of fine-grained data about how shmem buffers are shared among processes commit, commit, commit

  • Provide init_on_alloc and init_on_free boot options. These are aimed at preventing possible information leaks and making the control-flow bugs that depend on uninitialized values more deterministic. Enabling either of the options guarantees that the memory returned by the page allocator and SL[AU]B is initialized with zeroes. (SLOB allocator isn't supported at the moment). Enabling init_on_free also guarantees that pages and heap objects are initialized right after they're freed, so it won't be possible to access stale data by using a dangling pointer commit, commit

  • Improve CONFIG_DEBUG_PAGEALLOC so that it has even smaller overhead when not enabled at boot time, and also when enabled (Patch 3), and extended it to perform the struct page checks more often when enabled. Now it can be configured in when building a distro kernel without extra overhead, and debugging page use after free or double free can be enabled simply by rebooting with debug_pagealloc=on commit, commit, commit

  • memory control group
    • Introduce a new <debugfs>/memcg_slabinfo file which is somewhat similar to /proc/slabinfo in format, but lists only information about kmem caches that have child memcg kmem caches. Information available in /proc/slabinfo are not repeated in memcg_slabinfo commit

    • The memory controller exposes a memory.events file which shows the number of times events have happened for the whole tree rooted at a given memcg. However there are users which are only interested in the events happening at a specific level of the memcg tree and not in the events in the underlying tree rooted at that memcg, and find memory.events inconvenient. This release introduces a memory.events.local file to the memcg which shows and notify for the events at the memcg level commit

    • On cgroup removal, reparent slab memory to the parent cgroup; lack of this funcionality was preventing dying cgroups from being reclaimed commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit

  • smaps: Report separate components (anon, file, and shmem) for PSS in smaps_rollup proc file. This helps understand and tune the memory manager behavior in consumer devices, particularly mobile devices commit

  • swap: use rbtree for swap_extent instead of a linked list, which greatly improves swap performance when there are lots of processes accessing the swap device concurrently and swap is very fragmented commit

  • Sub-section memory hotplug support: Generalise the memory hotplug code so that pmem can use it more completely. Then remove the hacks from the libnvdimm code which were there to work around the memory-hotplug code's constraints commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit

  • KASAN: Add object validation in ksize() to avoid unconditionally unpoisoning the whole shadow memory region associated with an allocation. This can lead to various undetected bugs commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit

  • Add bitops instrumentation to KASAN commit, commit, commit,

  • slab: add defenses against slab cache confusion (as seen in real-world exploits) and gracefully handles type confusions when trying to look up slab caches from an arbitrary page commit, commit, commit

  • device-dax: "Hotremove" persistent memory that is used like normal RAM commit

  • Show number of vmalloc pages in /proc/meminfo commit

  • vmscan: scan anonymous pages on file refaults. When file refaults are detected and there are many inactive file pages, the system never reclaim anonymous pages, the file pages are droppedaggressively when there are still a lot of cold anonymous pages and system thrashes. This issue impacts the performance of applications with large executable, e.g. chrome commit

  • tools/memory-model: Add data-race detection commit

  • Extend tools/vm/slabinfo to improve the fragmentation information by enabling sorting of caches by number of partial slabs commit, commit, commit, commit

5. Block layer

  • dm crypt: implement eboiv, encrypted byte-offset initialization vector. This IV is used in some BitLocker devices with CBC encryption mode commit

  • dm kcopyd: Increase default sub-job size to 512KB to improve performance, also, add dm_mod.kcopyd_subjob_size_kb module parameter to allow users to fine tune the sub-job size of kcopyd commit

  • dm snapshot: Add optional discard features to DM snapshot which allow freeing space from a DM device whose free space was exhausted commit

  • nbd: add netlink reconfigure resize support commit

  • rbd: support for object-map and fast-diff commit

  • sed-opal: add ioctl for setting the shadow MBR done flag which can be useful for unlocking an OPAL disk on boot, and also add ioctl for writing to the shadow MBR commit, commit

6. Tracing, perf and BPF

7. Virtualization

  • Add virtio-iommu driver. The virtio IOMMU is a para-virtualized device, allowing to send IOMMU requests such as map/unmap over virtio transport without emulating page tables. This implementation handles ATTACH, DETACH, MAP and UNMAP requests commit

  • virtio-pmem: Add virtio pmem driver that provides access to virtio-pmem devices, storage devices that are mapped into the physical address space - similar to NVDIMMs - with a virtio-based flushing interface commit

  • virtio_net: enable napi_tx by default. NAPI tx mode improves TCP behavior by enabling TCP small queues (TSQ). TSQ reduces queuing ("bufferbloat") and burstiness commit

  • vhost: accelerate metadata access. Test shows about 24% improvement on TX PPS commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit

  • vhost_net: disable zerocopy by default commit

  • veth: introduces bulk XDP_TX in veth. Improves XDP_TX performance by approximately 9% commit

  • IMA: support per policy rule template format support, needed for a couple of new/proposed features (eg. kexec boot command line measurement, appended signatures, and VFS provided file hashes) commit

  • TPM: Add support for TCG2 event logs on EFI systems commit, commit, commit, commit

  • Add the ability to filter audit records based on network address family commit

10. Networking

  • Fix listing (IPv4, IPv6) and flushing (IPv6) of cached route exceptions by allowing userspace to clearly request cached routes with the RTM_F_CLONED flag used as a filter (in conjuction with strict checking) and by retrieving and dumping cached routes if requested commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit

  • Unix Sockets: Adds the ability for netlink to report a socket's UID along with the commit

  • Bluetooth:
    • Add support for LE ping feature commit

    • Add debug setting for changing minimum encryption key size commit

  • batman-adv: Add routable multicast optimizations commit, commit, commit, commit, commit

  • Netdevice HW MPLS features are not passed from device driver's netdevice to upper netdevice, specifically VLAN and bonding netdevice which are created by the kernel when needed. This prevents enablement and usage of HW offloads. This release inherit the MPLS features from lower netdevices to allow the HW offloads commit, commit

  • bonding: add an option to specify a delay between peer notifications commit

  • devlink: To improve visibility of representor netdevice, its association with PF or VF, physical port, two new devlink port flavours are added as PCI PF and PCI VF ports commit, commit, commit, commit, commit

    • Add native connection tracking support for the bridge. Before this patchset, only chance for people to do stateful filtering is to use the br_netfilter emulation layer, this is a step forward to deprecate it commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit, commit

    • Support for pernet sysctl in br_netfilter commit, commit

    • Add SYNPROXY module support in nf_tables. It preserves the behaviour of the SYNPROXY target of iptables but structured in a different way to propose improvements in the future commit

    • Introduce act_ctinfo, a new tc filter action module. It is designed to restore DSCPs stored in conntrack marks into the ipv4/v6 diffserv field. The feature is intended for use and has been found useful for restoring ingress classifications based on egress classifications across links that bleach or otherwise change DSCP, typically home ISP Internet links. Restoring DSCP on ingress on the WAN link allows qdiscs such as CAKE to shape inbound packets according to policies that are easier to indicate on egress commit
