Eric Dumazet [Sun, 5 Feb 2006 07:27:36 +0000]
[PATCH] percpu data: only iterate over possible CPUs

percpu_data blindly allocates bootmem memory to store NR_CPUS instances of
cpudata, instead of allocating memory only for possible cpus.

As a preparation for changing that, we need to convert various 0 -> NR_CPUS
loops to use for_each_cpu().

(The above only applies to users of asm-generic/percpu.h.  powerpc has gone it
alone and is presently only allocating memory for present CPUs, so it's
currently corrupting memory).

Don't mark the reference per cpu data init data (so it stays

they reference some valid - although shared memory. Usually
this is only initialization like INIT_LIST_HEADs and there

Andi Kleen [Fri, 3 Feb 2006 20:51:41 +0000]
[PATCH] x86_64: Calibrate APIC timer using PM timer

On some broken motherboards (at least one NForce3 based AMD64 laptop)
the PIT timer runs at a incorrect frequency.  This patch adds a new
option "apicpmtimer" that allows to use the APIC timer and calibrate it
using the PMTimer.  It requires the earlier patch that allows to run the
main timer from the APIC.

Specifying apicpmtimer implies apicmaintimer.

The option defaults to off for now.

I tested it on a few systems and the resulting APIC timer frequencies
were usually a bit off, but always <1%, which should be tolerable.

TBD figure out heuristic to enable this automatically on the affected
systems TBD perhaps do it on all NForce3s or using DMI?

[PATCH] x86_64: When allocation of merged SG lists fails in the IOMMU don't merge

[ AK: I redid Kevin's fix to be simpler, but the idea and original
  analysis of the problem is from Kevin]

This avoid allocation failures on some SATA systems like Nvidia CK8
when the IOMMU gets fragmented. Modern SATA devices have quite large queues
(128 entries) and the FS with ext2/3 is good enough now that it often
passes whole 128 page sg lists down to the driver. These require
512K of continuous free space in the IOMMU aperture to map when merged.
When the IOMMU is fragmented this could lead to spurious IO errors
due to failing mappings.

Short term fix is to just try to map the SG list again unmerged
page by page - this way fragmentation doesn't matter anymore.
The code for that was already there, but it just wasn't enabled for the
merge case.

According to Kevin at least the Nvidia device doesn't seem to benefit
from merging much anyways, so the only slowdown is from trying
to do an unnecessary merge attempt.

Kevin plans to implement better fragmentation avoidance in the future,
but that wouldn't be 2.6.16 material.

TBD: should add some statistic counters to count how often that really
happens.

in the node's cpumask when a cpu goes down or cpu bring up is cancelled.
This is buggy since there are pieces of common code where the cpumask is
checked in the cpu down code path to decide on things (like in  the slab
down path).  PPC does the right thing, but x86_64 and ia64 don't (This
was the reason Sonny hit upon a slab bug during cpu offline on ppc and
could not reproduce on other arches).  This patch fixes it for x86_64.
I won't attempt ia64 as I cannot test it.

the way the main timer handler computes the delay doesn't work.

It should be a bit more efficient because there is one less

[PATCH] RocketPoint 1520 [hpt366] fails clock stabilization

I just purchased a HighPoint Rocket 1520 SATA controller.  There seems to
be no libata driver (yet), but there is an ide driver, hpt366.  When the
driver gets loaded, it causes a kernel NULL pointer dereference in
pci_bus_clock_list.  It seems to be because the driver is waiting for clock
stabilization in init_hpt37x() which never comes.  The driver just
continues on with the pci drvdata set to NULL, instead of a valid clock
entry.  The following patch prevents the NULL dereference from happening,
but instead exit with an error.

This patch stops CompactFlash devices being marked as removable.  They are
not removable (as defined by Linux) as the media and device are
inseparable.  When a card is removed, the whole device is removed from the
system and never sits in a media-less state.

This stops some nasty udev device creation/destruction loops.

[PATCH] IPMI: fix issues reported by Coverity in ipmi_msghandler.c

While looking to the report by Coverity in ipmi, I came across the
following issue:

The IPMI message handler relies on two defines which are the same -one in
include/linux/ipmi.h
#define IPMI_NUM_CHANNELS 0x10
and one in drivers/char/ipmi/ipmi_msghandler.
#define IPMI_MAX_CHANNELS       16
These are used interchangeably in ipmi_msghandler.c, but since the array
addr->channels[] is of size IPMI_MAX_CHANNELS, I have made a patch that
uses IPMI_MAX_CHANNELS for all the checks for the array index.

NOTE: You could probably remove the line that defines IPMI_NUM_CHANNELS
from ipmi.h, or move IPMI_MAX_CHANNELS to ipmi.h

pkt_type is only three bit wide.

I think this should fix it for the moment, pkt_type 7 is not used yet and
this is only used internal in hisax.

Andrew Morton [Fri, 3 Feb 2006 11:04:47 +0000]
[PATCH] ip2main.c warning fixes

With Eric's "i386: Add a temporary to make put_user more type safe" patch we
get a pile of warnings out of ip2m1in.c:

drivers/char/ip2main.c: In function `ip2_ipl_ioctl':
drivers/char/ip2main.c:2910: warning: assignment makes integer from pointer without a cast
drivers/char/ip2main.c:2911: warning: assignment makes integer from pointer without a cast
drivers/char/ip2main.c:2912: warning: assignment makes integer from pointer without a cast
etc.

This ioctl is copying the kernel virtual address of a large number of
functions out to userspace.  Heaven knows why.

Rather than fixing the warnings, I think we'll just nuke that code.

The patch also fixes a couple of `defined but not used' warnings.

Change locking in the new tty buffering facility from using tty->read_lock,
which is currently ignored by drivers and thus ineffective.  New locking
uses a new tty buffering specific lock enforced centrally in the tty
buffering code.

Two drivers (esp and cyclades) are updated to use the tty buffering
functions instead of accessing tty buffering internals directly.  This is
required for the new locking to work.

14 years ago[PATCH] Export cpu topology in sysfs
Zhang, Yanmin [Fri, 3 Feb 2006 11:04:36 +0000]
[PATCH] Export cpu topology in sysfs

The patch implements cpu topology exportation by sysfs.

Items (attributes) are similar to /proc/cpuinfo.

1) /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpuX/topology/physical_package_id:
represent the physical package id of  cpu X;
2) /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpuX/topology/core_id:
represent the cpu core id to cpu X;
3) /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpuX/topology/thread_siblings:
represent the thread siblings to cpu X in the same core;
4) /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpuX/topology/core_siblings:
represent the thread siblings to cpu X in the same physical package;

To implement it in an architecture-neutral way, a new source file,
driver/base/topology.c, is to export the 5 attributes.

If one architecture wants to support this feature, it just needs to
implement 4 defines, typically in file include/asm-XXX/topology.h.
The 4 defines are:
#define topology_physical_package_id(cpu)
#define topology_core_id(cpu)
#define topology_thread_siblings(cpu)
#define topology_core_siblings(cpu)

The type of **_id is int.
The type of siblings is cpumask_t.

To be consistent on all architectures, the 4 attributes should have
deafult values if their values are unavailable. Below is the rule.

1) physical_package_id: If cpu has no physical package id, -1 is the
default value.

2) core_id: If cpu doesn't support multi-core, its core id is 0.

3) thread_siblings: Just include itself, if the cpu doesn't support
HT/multi-thread.

4) core_siblings: Just include itself, if the cpu doesn't support
multi-core and HT/Multi-thread.

So be careful when declaring the 4 defines in include/asm-XXX/topology.h.

If an attribute isn't defined on an architecture, it won't be exported.

Thank Nathan, Greg, Andi, Paul and Venki.

The patch provides defines for i386/x86_64/ia64.

[PATCH] fcntl F_SETFL and read-only IS_APPEND files

There is code in setfl() which attempts to preserve the O_APPEND flag on
IS_APPEND files...  however IS_APPEND files could also be opened O_RDONLY
and in that case setfl() should not require O_APPEND...

coreutils 5.93 tail -f attempts to set O_NONBLOCK even on regular files...
unfortunately if you try this on an append-only log file the result is
this:

fcntl64(3, F_GETFL)                     = 0x8000 (flags O_RDONLY|O_LARGEFILE)
fcntl64(3, F_SETFL, O_RDONLY|O_NONBLOCK|O_LARGEFILE) = -1 EPERM (Operation not permitted)

I offer up the patch below as one way of fixing the problem...  i've tested
it fixes the problem with tail -f but haven't really tested beyond that.

(I also reported the coreutils bug upstream... it shouldn't fail imho...

Jeff Moyer [Fri, 3 Feb 2006 11:04:27 +0000]
[PATCH] fix O_DIRECT read of last block in a sparse file

Currently, if you open a file O_DIRECT, truncate it to a size that is not a
multiple of the disk block size, and then try to read the last block in the
file, the read will return 0.  The problem is in do_direct_IO, here:

        /* Handle holes */
        if (!buffer_mapped(map_bh)) {
                char *kaddr;

...

                if (dio->block_in_file >=
                        i_size_read(dio->inode)>>blkbits) {
                        /* We hit eof */
                        page_cache_release(page);
                        goto out;
                }

We shift off any remaining bytes in the final block of the I/O, resulting
in a 0-sized read.  I've attached a patch that fixes this.  I'm not happy
about how ugly the math is getting, so suggestions are more than welcome.

I've tested this with a simple program that performs the steps outlined for
reproducing the problem above.  Without the patch, we get a 0-sized result
from read.  With the patch, we get the correct return value from the short
read.
