Add new entries for Mystique AGP with the PCI ID 0x051e.

I don't actually have such boards but according to google they do exist.
Curiosly X.Org doesn't recognize that PCI ID.  And what's even more
interesting is that Matrox's own Windows drivers don't recognize it either.
After going through about a dozen different versions I did find one older
driver that does list this particular ID.  It is also listed in the pci.ids
file.

I'm not sure if non-220 AGP chips exist.  I left the chip revision check
intact for AGP chips nonetheless.

[PATCH] fbdev: fix the fb_find_nearest_mode() function

Currently the fb_find_nearest_mode() function finds a mode with screen
resolution closest to that described by the 'var' argument and with some
arbitrary refresh rate (eg.  in the following sequence of refresh rates: 70 60
53 85 75, 53 is selected).

This patch fixes the function so that it looks for the closest mode as far as
both resolution and refresh rate are concerned.  The function's first argument
is changed to fb_videomode so that the refresh rate can be specified by the
caller, as fb_var_screeninfo doesn't have any fields that could directly hold

[PATCH] atyfb: Get initial mode timings from LCD BIOS

Reported by: Jean-Philippe Guérard (Bugzilla Bug 1782)

"I've tried with video=atyfb:debug and video=atyfb:debug,mode:1280x600, \
nomtrr.

In both case, the screen stays black, but seems divided into 4 vertical bands.
 Some white lines pop up randomly on each vertical band."

The problem is a combination of an incorrect xclk plus lack of timing
information.  The adapter is attached to an LCD device that can do 1280x600
(which is not a standard resolution).  The global mode database does not have
an entry for it.  Fortunately, the Video BIOS contains the complete timing
info for this display, however, atyfb is not making use of it.

Add support to get the timing information from the BIOS, if available.

Antonino A. Daplas [Mon, 7 Nov 2005 09:00:35 +0000]
[PATCH] fbcon/fbdev: Move softcursor out of fbdev to fbcon

According to Jon Smirl, filling in the field fb_cursor with soft_cursor for
drivers that do not support hardware cursors is redundant.  The soft_cursor
function is usable by all drivers because it is just a wrapper around
fb_imageblit.  And because soft_cursor is an fbcon-specific hook, the file is
moved to the console directory.

Thus, drivers that do not support hardware cursors can leave the fb_cursor
field blank.  For drivers that do, they can fill up this field with their own
version.

The end result is a smaller code size.  And if the framebuffer console is not
loaded, module/kernel size is also reduced because the soft_cursor module will
also not be loaded.

nvidiafb didn't fully hook-up the code it borrowed from X for doing flat
panel dithering (this is useful for 6 bits panels).  This adds a driver
option to force it, and by default "reads" the current value from the chip
to get the firmware setting.  It significantly improves the quality of
images on the iMac G5 I have here (though the X driver doesn't yet "read"
the current value and defaults to 0, so you have to add Option "FBDither"
"true" to your X config file to get that, I'll try to fix X.org to "read"
the default unless specified asap).

[PATCH] Kprobes: rearrange preempt_disable/enable() calls

The following set of patches are aimed at improving kprobes scalability.  We
currently serialize kprobe registration, unregistration and handler execution
using a single spinlock - kprobe_lock.

With these changes, kprobe handlers can run without any locks held.  It also
allows for simultaneous kprobe handler executions on different processors as
we now track kprobe execution on a per processor basis.  It is now necessary
that the handlers be re-entrant since handlers can run concurrently on
multiple processors.

All changes have been tested on i386, ia64, ppc64 and x86_64, while sparc64

[PATCH] ipmi: fix watchdog timeout panic handling

If a panic came from the IPMI watchdog pretimeout and that was reported via
an NMI, it would also be reported via the standard IPMI flags, which would
get picked up when reporting panic events and cause another panic.  This
adds an atomic to avoid calling panic twice.

14 years ago[PATCH] ipmi: add timer thread
Corey Minyard [Mon, 7 Nov 2005 09:00:03 +0000]
[PATCH] ipmi: add timer thread

We must poll for responses to commands when interrupts aren't in use.  The
default poll interval is based on using a kernel timer, which varies with HZ.
For character-based interfaces like KCS and SMIC though, that can be way too
slow (>15 minutes to flash a new firmware with KCS, >20 seconds to retrieve
the sensor list).

This creates a low-priority kernel thread to poll more often.  If the state
machine is idle, so is the kernel thread.  But if there's an active command,
it polls quite rapidly.  This decrease a firmware flash time from 15 minutes
to 1.5 minutes, and the sensor list time to 4.5 seconds, on a Dell PowerEdge
x8x system.

The timer-based polling remains, to ensure some amount of responsiveness even
under high user process CPU load.

Checking for a stopped timer at rmmod now uses atomics and del_timer_sync() to
ensure safe stoppage.

Corey Minyard [Mon, 7 Nov 2005 09:00:02 +0000]
[PATCH] ipmi: kcs error0 delay

BMCs can get into ERROR0 state while flashing new firmware, particularly while
the BMC is erasing the next flash block, which may take a just under 2 seconds
on a Dell PowerEdge 2800 (1.75 seconds typical), during which time the
single-threaded firmware may not be able to process new commands.  In
particular, clearing OBF may not take effect immediately.

We want it to delay in ERROR0 after clearing OBF a bit waiting for OBF to
actually be clear before proceeding.

This introduces a new return value from the LLDD's event loop,
SI_SM_CALL_WITH_TICK_DELAY.  This means the calling thread/timer should
schedule_timeout() at least 1 tick, rather than busy-wait.  This is a longer
delay than SI_SM_CALL_WITH_DELAY, which is typically a 250us busy-wait.

Corey Minyard [Mon, 7 Nov 2005 09:00:01 +0000]
[PATCH] ipmi: bt restart reset fixes

The current BT retry/reset mechanism fails to succeed on a PowerEdge 1650,
when the controller is wedged with B2H_ATN asserted at XACTION_START.  If this
occurs, no further commands will ever succeed unless the state of the
controller is first cleared out.

Furthermore, the soft reset would only occur if the first command after insmod
was the one that timed out, not if a later command timed out.

This patch changes the retry/reset mechanism to be as follows:

Before retrying a command, clear the state of the BT controller such that the
flags represent ready for a new transaction.  This increases the chance of
success of the restarted transaction.

After 2 retries, issue a soft reset and retry one more time before giving up
and reporting back a failure.

[PATCH] ipmi: si start transaction hook

Some commands, on some system BMCs, don't respond at at all.  This is seen on
Dell PowerEdge x6xx and x7xx systems with IPMI 1.0 BT controllers when a "Get
SDR" command is issued, with a length field of 0x3A, which happens to be the
length of about SDR entries.  If another length is passed, this command
succeeds.

This patch adds general infrastructure for receiving commands before they're
passed down to the low-level drivers, such that they can be completed
immediately, or modified, prior to being sent to ->start_transaction().

Corey Minyard [Mon, 7 Nov 2005 08:59:56 +0000]
[PATCH] ipmi: various si cleanup

A number of small changes for the various system interface drivers,
consolidated from a number of patches from Matt Domsch.

Clear B2H_ATN and drain the BMC message buffer on command timeout.  This
prevents further commands from failing after a timeout.

Add bt_debug and smic_debug module parameters, expose them in sysfs.  This
lets you enable and disable debugging messages at runtime.

Unsigned jiffies math in ipmi_si_intf.c causes a too-large value to be passed
to ->event() after jiffies wrap-around.  The BT driver had caught this, but
didn't know how to fix it.  Now all calls to ->event() use a sane value for
time.

Increase timeout for commands handed to the BT driver from 2 seconds to 5
seconds.  This is necessary particularly when the previous command was a
"Clear SEL", as that command completes, yet the BMC isn't really ready to
handle another command yet.

Silence BT debugging messages which were being printed on the console.

Increase SMIC timeout form 1/10s to 2s.  This is needed on Dell PowerEdge 2650
and PowerEdge 750 with ERA/O cards to allow commands to complete without
timing out.

Adds kcs_debug module param, to match behavior of BT and SMIC.  This also
prevents messages from being sent to the console unless explicitly requested.

[PATCH] ipmi: use refcount in message handler

This patch is rather large, but it really can't be done in smaller chunks
easily and I believe it is an important change.  This has been out and tested
for a while in the latest IPMI driver release.  There are no functional
changes, just changes as necessary to convert the locking over (and a few
minor style updates).

The IPMI driver uses read/write locks to ensure that things exist while they
are in use.  This is bad from a number of points of view.  This patch removes
the rwlocks and uses refcounts and RCU lists to manage what the locks did.

[PATCH] as: cooperating processes

Introduce the notion of cooperating processes (those that submit requests
close to one another), and use these statistics to make better choices about
whether or not to do anticipatory waiting.

Help and analysis from Seetharami Seelam <seelam@cs.utep.edu>

Performance testing from Seelam:

I set up my system and executed a couple of tests that I used for OLS.  I
tested with AS, cooperative process patch merged in -mm tree (which I called
Nick, below) and the cooperative patch with modifications to as_update_iohist
(which I called Seelam).

I used a dual-processor (2.28GHz Pentium 4 Xeon) system, with 1 GB main memory
and 1 MB L2 cache, running Linux 2.6.9.  Only a single processor is used for
the experiments.  I used 7.2K RPM Maxtor 10GB drive configured with ext2 file
system.

Experiment 1 (ex1) consists of reading  one Linux source trees using

  find . -type f -exec cat '{}' ';' > /dev/null.

Experiment 2 (ex2) consists of reading two disjoint Linux source trees
using

  find . -type f -exec cat '{}' ';' > /dev/null.

Experiment 3 (ex3) consists of streaming read of a 2GB file in the background
and 1 instance of the chunk reads in Experiment 1.

Timings for reading the Linux source are shown below:

             AS                     Nick          Seelam
ex1:      0m25.813s               0m27.859s      0m27.640s
ex2:      1m11.468s               1m13.918s      1m5.869s
ex3:      81m44.352s             10m38.572s      6m47.994s

The difference between the numbers in Experiment 3 must be due to the code in
as_update_iohist.  (akpm: that's not part of this patch.  So this patch is
"Nick").

Mikael Pettersson <mikpe@csd.uu.se> noted that the current 2.6-git (and 2.4)
patch to disallow KDSKBSENT for unpriviledged users should be less restrictive
allowing reading of current function key string entry, but not writing.

David Gibson [Mon, 7 Nov 2005 08:59:33 +0000]
[PATCH] FUTEX_WAKE_OP: enhanced error handling

The code for FUTEX_WAKE_OP calls an arch callback,
futex_atomic_op_inuser().  That callback can return an error code, but
currently the caller assumes any error is EFAULT, and will try various
things to resolve the fault before eventually giving up with EFAULT
(regardless of the original error code).  This is not a theoretical case -
arch callbacks currently return -ENOSYS if the opcode they are given is
bogus.

This patch alters the code to detect non-EFAULT errors and return them
directly to the user.

Of course, whether -ENOSYS is the correct return value for the bogus opcode
case, or whether EINVAL would be more appropriate is another question.

14 years ago[PATCH] aio: remove aio_max_nr accounting race
Zach Brown [Mon, 7 Nov 2005 08:59:31 +0000]
[PATCH] aio: remove aio_max_nr accounting race

AIO was adding a new context's max requests to the global total before
testing if that resulting total was over the global limit.  This let
innocent tasks get their new limit tested along with a racing guilty task
that was crossing the limit.  This serializes the _nr accounting with a
spinlock It also switches to using unsigned long for the global totals.
Individual contexts are still limited to an unsigned int's worth of
requests by the syscall interface.

The problem and fix were verified with a simple program that spun creating
and destroying a context while holding on to another long lived context.
Before the patch a task creating a tiny context could get a spurious EAGAIN
if it raced with a task creating a very large context that overran the
limit.

Hans Reiser [Mon, 7 Nov 2005 08:59:29 +0000]
[PATCH] reiser4: add radix_tree_lookup_slot()

Reiser4 uses radix trees to solve a trouble reiser4_readdir has serving nfs
requests.

Unfortunately, radix tree api lacks an operation suitable for modifying
existing entry.  This patch adds radix_tree_lookup_slot which returns pointer
to found item within the tree.  That location can be then updated.

Both Nick and Christoph Lameter have patches which need this as well.
