[PATCH] mspec driver build fix

Fix MSPEC driver to build for non SN2 enabled configs as the driver should
work in cached and uncached modes (no fetchop) on these systems.  In
addition make MSPEC select IA64_UNCACHED_ALLOCATOR, which is required for
it and move it to arch/ia64/Kconfig to avoid warnings on non ia64
architectures running allmodconfig.  Once the Kconfig code is fixed, we can
move it back.

12 years ago[PATCH] pci: don't try to remove sysfs files before they are setup.
David Miller [Fri, 10 Nov 2006 20:27:48 +0000]
[PATCH] pci: don't try to remove sysfs files before they are setup.

The PCI sysfs attributes are created after the initial PCI bus scan.  With
the addition of more return value checking and assertions in the device and
sysfs layers we now can get dumps like this on sparc64:

[   20.135032] Call Trace:
[   20.135042]  [0000000000537f88] pci_remove_bus_device+0x30/0xc0

[   20.135514] PCI0(PBMB): Bus running at 33MHz

It's triggering because removal of the "config" PCI sysfs file for the
device fails.

On sparc64, after probing the device, we'll delete the PCI device via
pci_remove_bus_device() if we cannot find the firmware device tree node
corresponding to it.

This is fine, but at this point the sysfs files for the PCI device won't be
setup yet.

So we should not try to do anything in pci_remove_sysfs_dev_files() if
pci_sysfs_init() has not run yet.

[PATCH] nfsd: fix spurious error return from nfsd_create in async case

Commit 6264d69d7df654ca64f625e9409189a0e50734e9 modified the nfsd_create()
error handling in such a way that nfsd_create will usually return
nfserr_perm even when succesful, if the export has the async export option.

[PATCH] htirq: refactor so we only have one function that writes to the chip

12 years ago[PATCH] sysctl: Undeprecate sys_sysctl
Eric W. Biederman [Thu, 9 Nov 2006 01:44:51 +0000]
[PATCH] sysctl: Undeprecate sys_sysctl

The basic issue is that despite have been deprecated and warned about as a
very bad thing in the man pages since its inception there are a few real
users of sys_sysctl.  It was my assumption that because sysctl had been
deprecated for all of 2.6 there would be no user space users by this point,
so I initially gave sys_sysctl a very short deprecation period.

Now that I know there are a few real users the only sane way to proceed
with deprecation is to push the time limit out to a year or two work and
work with distributions that have big testing pools like fedora core to
find these last remaining users.

Which means that the sys_sysctl interface needs to be maintained in the
meantime.

Since I have provided a technical measure that allows us to add new sysctl
entries without reserving more binary numbers I believe that is enough to
fix the sys_sysctl binary interface maintenance problems, because there is
no longer a need to change the binary interface at all.

Since the sys_sysctl implementation needs to stay around for a while and
the worst of the maintenance issues that caused us to occasionally break
the ABI have been addressed I don't see any advantage in continuing with
the removal of sys_sysctl.

So instead of merely increasing the deprecation period this patch removes
the deprecation of sys_sysctl and modifies the kernel to compile the code
in by default.

With committing to maintain sys_sysctl we get all of the advantages of a
fast interface for anything that needs it.  Currently sys_sysctl is about
5x faster than /proc/sys, for the same string data.

[PATCH] ia64: select ACPI_NUMA if ACPI

When ACPI && NUMA, pxm_to_node is used and it exists in drivers/acpi/numa.c

Tony said:

  The patch makes sense ...  if you pick both of "ACPI" and "NUMA", then you
  need (and should automatically be given) ACPI_NUMA too.

  The only open question is whether there is a better way of getting there.
  Perhaps with less configuration options in the first place?  We are heading
  towards a future where so many systems will be NUMA that there would seem to
  be little benefit in keeping ACPI_NUMA separate from ACPI ...  but perhaps
  we aren't quite there yet.

[PATCH] md: do not freeze md threads for suspend

If there's a swap file on a software RAID, it should be possible to use this
file for saving the swsusp's suspend image.  Also, this file should be
available to the memory management subsystem when memory is being freed before
the suspend image is created.

For the above reasons it seems that md_threads should not be frozen during the
suspend and the appended patch makes this happen, but then there is the
question if they don't cause any data to be written to disks after the suspend
image has been created, provided that all filesystems are frozen at that time.

[PATCH] dm: fix find_device race

There is a race between dev_create() and find_device().

If the mdptr has not yet been stored against a device, find_device() needs to
behave as though no device was found.  It already returns NULL, but there is a
dm_put() missing: it must drop the reference dm_get_md() took.

The bug was introduced by dm-fix-mapped-device-ref-counting.patch.

It manifests itself if another dm ioctl attempts to reference a newly-created
device while the device creation ioctl is still running.  The consequence is
that the device cannot be removed until the machine is rebooted.  Certain udev
configurations can lead to this happening.

think it would be right to assume that set_mb() implies mb(), all arches
seem to do just this.

12 years ago[PATCH] Regression in 2.6.19-rc microcode driver
Arjan van de Ven [Thu, 9 Nov 2006 01:44:37 +0000]
[PATCH] Regression in 2.6.19-rc microcode driver

If the microcode driver is built in (rather than module) there are some,
ehm, interesting effects happening due to the new "call out to userspace"
behavior that is introduced..  and which runs too early.  The result is a
boot hang; which is really nasty.

The patch below is a minimally safe patch to fix this regression for 2.6.19
by just not requesting actual microcode updates during early boot.  (That
is a good idea in general anyway)

The "real" fix is a lot more complex given the entire cpu hotplug scenario
(during cpu hotplug you normally need to load the microcode as well); but
the interactions for that are just really messy at this point; this fix at
least makes it work and avoids a full detangle of hotplug.

x86-64: write IO APIC irq routing entries in correct order

This is the x86-64 version of f9dadfa71bc594df09044da61d1c72701121d802
that did the same thing on i386.

Since the "mask" bit is in the low word, when we write a new entry, we
need to write the high word first, before we potentially unmask it.

The exception is when we actually want to mask the interrupt, in which
case we want to write the low word first to make sure that the high word
doesn't change while the interrupt routing is still active.

This is just commit 130fe05dbc0114609cfef9815c0c5580b42decfa ported to
x86-64, for all the same reasons.  It cleans up the IO-APIC accesses in
order to then fix the ordering issues.

We move the accessor functions (that were only used by io_apic.c) out of
a header file, and use proper memory-mapped accesses rather than making
up our own "volatile" pointers.

[ARM] 3927/1: Allow show_mem() to work with holes in memory map.

show_mem() was not correctly handling holes in the memory
map.  It was treating the freed sections of the map as
though they contained valid struct page entries.  This
could cause incorrect debugging output or even a kernel
panic.

This patch keeps the struct meminfo around after system
initialization so that show_mem() can use it when
scanning memory.  show_mem() now walks over each bank
of each online node, rather than assuming that each node
contains a single contiguous bank.

[PATCH] b44: change comment about irq mask register

Through some experimentation with the similarly built bcm43xx I came to
the conclusion that if the hw/firmware sets a bit in the interrupt
register, an interrupt will only be raised if that bit is included in
the interrupt mask. Hence, the interrupt mask is more like an interrupt
control mask.

This patch changes the comment to reflect that.

Commit 7676bef9c183fd573822cac9992927ef596d584c breaks DCSS support on

are initialized.
This could be fixed if the DCSS driver would initiliaze the struct pages
itself, but this doesn't work too. This is because the mem_map array
does not include holes after the last present memory area and therefore

12 years ago[PATCH] sysctl: allow a zero ctl_name in the middle of a sysctl table
Eric W. Biederman [Mon, 6 Nov 2006 07:52:12 +0000]
[PATCH] sysctl: allow a zero ctl_name in the middle of a sysctl table

Since it is becoming clear that there are just enough users of the binary
sysctl interface that completely removing the binary interface from the kernel
will not be an option for foreseeable future, we need to find a way to address
the sysctl maintenance issues.

The basic problem is that sysctl requires one central authority to allocate
sysctl numbers, or else conflicts and ABI breakage occur.  The proc interface
to sysctl does not have that problem, as names are not densely allocated.

By not terminating a sysctl table until I have neither a ctl_name nor a
procname, it becomes simple to add sysctl entries that don't show up in the
binary sysctl interface.  Which allows people to avoid allocating a binary
sysctl value when not needed.

I have audited the kernel code and in my reading I have not found a single
sysctl table that wasn't terminated by a completely zero filled entry.  So
this change in behavior should not affect anything.

I think this mechanism eases the pain enough that combined with a little
disciple we can solve the reoccurring sysctl ABI breakage.

http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=7438

tg3_close() turns off the PHY if WoL and ASF are both disabled.  On
the next tg3_open(), some devices such as the 5752M will not be
brought up correctly without a PHY reset early in the reset sequence.
The PHY clock is needed for some internal MAC blocks to function
correctly.

This problem is fixed by always resetting the PHY early in
tg3_reset_hw() when it is called from tg3_open() or tg3_resume().
tg3_setup_phy() can then be called later in the sequence without the
