[PATCH] bcm43xx: remove badness variable and related routine

When the periodic work function in bcm43xx was converted for voluntary preemption
to reduce latency, a new function was created to estimate the "badness" of
each step, and this quantity was used to determine if preemption should be
enabled when periodic work was undertaken. This concept was quite useful
while debugging of periodic work was in progress. Now that this routine
seems to be working correctly, it is time to simplify the code. This
patch keeps the functionality intact, but simplifies the code.

13 years agoe1000: add dynamic itr modes
Jesse Brandeburg [Wed, 1 Nov 2006 16:48:13 +0000]
e1000: add dynamic itr modes

Add a new dynamic itr algorithm, with 2 modes, and make it the default
operation mode. This greatly reduces latency and increases small packet
performance, at the "cost" of some CPU utilization. Bulk traffic
throughput is unaffected.

The driver can limit the amount of interrupts per second that the
adapter will generate for incoming packets. It does this by writing a
value to the adapter that is based on the maximum amount of interrupts
that the adapter will generate per second.

Setting InterruptThrottleRate to a value greater or equal to 100 will
program the adapter to send out a maximum of that many interrupts per
second, even if more packets have come in. This reduces interrupt
load on the system and can lower CPU utilization under heavy load,
but will increase latency as packets are not processed as quickly.

The default behaviour of the driver previously assumed a static
InterruptThrottleRate value of 8000, providing a good fallback value
for all traffic types,but lacking in small packet performance and
latency. The hardware can handle many more small packets per second
however, and for this reason an adaptive interrupt moderation algorithm
was implemented.

Since 7.3.x, the driver has two adaptive modes (setting 1 or 3) in
which it dynamically adjusts the InterruptThrottleRate value based on
the traffic that it receives. After determining the type of incoming
traffic in the last timeframe, it will adjust the InterruptThrottleRate
to an appropriate value for that traffic.

The algorithm classifies the incoming traffic every interval into
classes.  Once the class is determined, the InterruptThrottleRate
value is adjusted to suit that traffic type the best. There are
three classes defined: "Bulk traffic", for large amounts of packets
of normal size; "Low latency", for small amounts of traffic and/or
a significant percentage of small packets; and "Lowest latency",
for almost completely small packets or minimal traffic.

In dynamic conservative mode, the InterruptThrottleRate value is
set to 4000 for traffic that falls in class "Bulk traffic". If
traffic falls in the "Low latency" or "Lowest latency" class, the
InterruptThrottleRate is increased stepwise to 20000. This default
mode is suitable for most applications.

For situations where low latency is vital such as cluster or
grid computing, the algorithm can reduce latency even more when
InterruptThrottleRate is set to mode 1. In this mode, which operates
the same as mode 3, the InterruptThrottleRate will be increased
stepwise to 70000 for traffic in class "Lowest latency".

Setting InterruptThrottleRate to 0 turns off any interrupt moderation
and may improve small packet latency, but is generally not suitable
for bulk throughput traffic.

[PATCH] prism54: fix potential race in reset scheduling

NET: prism54 - fix potential race in reset scheduling

There appears to be a race in reset scheduling logic - thread
responsible for reseting the interface should clear "reset
pending" flag before restarting the queue, otherwise timeout
handler might not schedule another reset even if it is needed.

This race is mostly theoretical as far as I can see but a race
nonetheless.

[PATCH] ieee80211: Drop and count duplicate data frames to remove 'replay detected' log messages

In the SoftMAC version of the IEEE 802.11 stack, not all duplicate messages are
detected. For the most part, there is no difficulty; however for TKIP and CCMP
encryption, the duplicates result in a "replay detected" log message where the
received and previous values of the TSC are identical. This change adds a new
variable to the ieee80211_device structure that holds the 'seq_ctl' value for
the previous frame. When a new frame repeats the value, the frame is dropped and
the appropriate counter is incremented.

[PATCH] ieee80211: Move IV/ICV stripping into ieee80211_rx

This patch adds a host_strip_iv_icv flag to ieee80211 which indicates that
ieee80211_rx should strip the IV/ICV/other security features from the payload.
This saves on some memmove() calls in the driver and seems like something that
belongs in the stack as it can be used by bcm43xx, ipw2200, and zd1211rw

I will submit the ipw2200 patch separately as it needs testing.

Al Viro [Mon, 9 Oct 2006 23:19:36 +0000]
[PATCH] beginning of 8390 fixes - generic and arm/etherh

etherh and a handful of other odd drivers use different macros when building
8390.c.  Since we generate a single 8390.o and then link with it, in any
config with both oddball and normal 8390-based driver we will end up with
breakage in at least one of them.  Solution: take most of 8390.c into
lib8390.c and have 8390.c, etherh.c and the rest of oddballs #include it.
Helper macros are taken from 8390.h to whoever includes lib8390.c.  That
way odd drivers get separate instances of compiled 8390 stuff and stop
stepping on each other's toes.  8390.h gets cleaned up - we don't have
the cascade of ifdefs in there and are left with the stuff that can be
used by any 8390-based driver.  Current problems are exactly because of
that cascade - we attempt to choose the set of helpers by looking at config
and that, of course, doesn't work well when we have several sets needed
by various drivers in our config.

Vanilla forcedeth doesn't seem to support suspend and an ifdown/up-cycle is
needed to get it working again after suspend.  Francois Romieu's "Awfully
experimental" patch is working just fine for me (with message signalled
interrupts disabled) and has survived quite a few suspend/resume cycles.

So I'd very much like to see (at least partial, with msi disabled)
suspend support for forcedeth in mainline.

Maciej W. Rozycki [Tue, 3 Oct 2006 15:18:35 +0000]
[PATCH] 2.6.18: sb1250-mac: Phylib IRQ handling fixes

 This patch fixes a couple of problems discovered with interrupt handling
in the phylib core, namely:

1. The driver uses timer and workqueue calls, but does not include
   <linux/timer.h> nor <linux/workqueue.h>.

2. The driver uses schedule_work() for handling interrupts, but does not
   make sure any pending work scheduled thus has been completed before
   driver's structures get freed from memory.  This is especially
   important as interrupts may keep arriving if the line is shared with
   another PHY.

   The solution is to ignore phy_interrupt() calls if the reported device
   has already been halted and calling flush_scheduled_work() from
   phy_stop_interrupts() (but guarded with current_is_keventd() in case
   the function has been called through keventd from the MAC device's
   close call to avoid a deadlock on the netlink lock).

David Brownell [Fri, 17 Nov 2006 07:28:47 +0000]
Driver core: platform_driver_probe(), can save codespace

This defines a new platform_driver_probe() method allowing the driver's
probe() method, and its support code+data, to safely live in __init
sections for typical system configurations.

Many system-on-chip processors could benefit from this API, to the tune
of recovering hundreds to thousands of bytes per driver.  That's memory
which is currently wasted holding code which can never be called after
system startup, yet can not be removed.   It can't be removed because of
the linkage requirement that pointers to init section code (like, ideally,
probe support) must not live in other sections (like driver method tables)
after those pointers would be invalid.

Provide a function device_move() to move a device to a new parent device. Add
auxilliary functions kobject_move() and sysfs_move_dir().
kobject_move() generates a new uevent of type KOBJ_MOVE, containing the
previous path (DEVPATH_OLD) in addition to the usual values. For this, a new

Thomas Maier [Sun, 22 Oct 2006 17:17:47 +0000]
sysfs: sysfs_write_file() writes zero terminated data

since most of the files in sysfs are text files,
it would be nice, if the "store" function called
during sysfs_write_file() gets a zero terminated
string / data.
The current implementation seems not to ensure this.
(But only if it is the first time the zeroed buffer
page is allocated.)

So the buffer can be scanned by sscanf() easily,
for example.

This patch simply sets a \0 char behind the
data in buffer->page.

cpu topology: consider sysfs_create_group return value

Take return value of sysfs_create_group() into account.  That function got
called in case of CPU_ONLINE notification.  Since callbacks are not allowed
to fail on CPU_ONLINE notification do the sysfs group creation on
CPU_UP_PREPARE notification.

Also remember if creation succeeded in a bitmask.  So it's possible to know
whether it's legal to call sysfs_remove_group or not.

In addition some other minor stuff:

- since CPU_UP_PREPARE might fail add CPU_UP_CANCELED handling as well.
- use hotcpu_notifier instead of register_hotcpu_notifier.
- #ifdef code that isn't needed in the !CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU case.

of removal while drivers are still attached to the device and possibly

and different card attribute files can hang off of. /sys/class/sound is
