type sizes, use the new generic cmpxchg_local (disables interrupt).

Change:
Since the header depends on local_irqsave/local_irqrestore, it must be
included after their declaration.

Actually, being below the
#include <linux/irqflags.h> should be enough, and on sparc64 it is
included at the beginning of system.h.

So it makes sense to move it up for sparc64.

Changelog:

ia64 cmpxchg_local coding style fix
Quoting Keith Owens:

As a matter of coding style, I prefer

#define cmpxchg_local   cmpxchg
#define cmpxchg64_local cmpxchg64

Which makes it absolutely clear that they are the same code.  With your
patch, humans have to do a string compare of two defines to see if they
are the same.

Note cmpxchg is *not* a performance win vs interrupt disable / enable on IA64.

12 years agoAdd cmpxchg_local to asm-generic for per cpu atomic operations
Mathieu Desnoyers [Thu, 7 Feb 2008 08:16:07 +0000]
Add cmpxchg_local to asm-generic for per cpu atomic operations

Emulates the cmpxchg_local by disabling interrupts around variable modification.
This is not reentrant wrt NMIs and MCEs. It is only protected against normal
interrupts, but this is enough for architectures without such interrupt sources
or if used in a context where the data is not shared with such handlers.

It can be used as a fallback for architectures lacking a real cmpxchg
instruction.

For architectures that have a real cmpxchg but does not have NMIs or MCE,
testing which of the generic vs architecture specific cmpxchg is the fastest
should be done.

asm-generic/cmpxchg.h defines a cmpxchg that uses cmpxchg_local. It is meant to
be used as a cmpxchg fallback for architectures that do not support SMP.

* Patch series comments

Using cmpxchg_local shows a performance improvements of the fast path goes from
a 66% speedup on a Pentium 4 to a 14% speedup on AMD64.

In this test, we seem to remove 10 cycles from the kmalloc fast path.
On small allocations, it gives a 14% performance increase. kfree fast
path also seems to have a 10 cycles improvement.

12 years agoSanitize the type of struct user.u_ar0
H. Peter Anvin [Thu, 7 Feb 2008 08:15:57 +0000]
Sanitize the type of struct user.u_ar0

struct user.u_ar0 is defined to contain a pointer offset on all
architectures in which it is defined (all architectures which define an
a.out format except SPARC.) However, it has a pointer type in the headers,
which is pointless -- <asm/user.h> is not exported to userspace, and it
just makes the code messy.

Redefine the field as "unsigned long" (which is the same size as a pointer
on all Linux architectures) and change the setting code to user offsetof()
instead of hand-coded arithmetic.

12 years agoiget: remove iget() and the read_inode() super op as being obsolete
David Howells [Thu, 7 Feb 2008 08:15:52 +0000]
iget: remove iget() and the read_inode() super op as being obsolete

Remove the old iget() call and the read_inode() superblock operation it uses
as these are really obsolete, and the use of read_inode() does not produce
proper error handling (no distinction between ENOMEM and EIO when marking an
inode bad).

Furthermore, this removes the temptation to use iget() to find an inode by
number in a filesystem from code outside that filesystem.

iget_locked() should be used instead.  A new function is added in an earlier
patch (iget_failed) that is to be called to mark an inode as bad, unlock it
and release it should the get routine fail.  Mark iget() and read_inode() as
being obsolete and remove references to them from the documentation.

Typically a filesystem will be modified such that the read_inode function
becomes an internal iget function, for example the following:

void thingyfs_read_inode(struct inode *inode)
{
...
}

would be changed into something like:

struct inode *thingyfs_iget(struct super_block *sp, unsigned long ino)
{
struct inode *inode;
int ret;

inode = iget_locked(sb, ino);
if (!inode)
return ERR_PTR(-ENOMEM);
if (!(inode->i_state & I_NEW))
return inode;

...
unlock_new_inode(inode);
return inode;
error:
iget_failed(inode);
return ERR_PTR(ret);
}

and then thingyfs_iget() would be called rather than iget(), for example:

ret = -EINVAL;
inode = iget(sb, ino);
if (!inode || is_bad_inode(inode))
goto error;

becomes:

inode = thingyfs_iget(sb, ino);
if (IS_ERR(inode)) {
ret = PTR_ERR(inode);
goto error;
}

Note that is_bad_inode() does not need to be called.  The error returned by
thingyfs_iget() should render it unnecessary.

12 years agoiget: stop HPPFS from using iget() and read_inode()
David Howells [Thu, 7 Feb 2008 08:15:51 +0000]
iget: stop HPPFS from using iget() and read_inode()

Stop the HPPFS filesystem from using iget() and read_inode().  Provide an
hppfs_iget(), and call that instead of iget().  hppfs_iget() then uses
iget_locked() directly and returns a proper error code instead of an inode in
the event of an error.

hppfs_fill_sb_common() returns any error incurred when getting the root inode
instead of EINVAL.

Note that the contents of hppfs_kern.c need to be examined:

 (*) The HPPFS inode retains a pointer to the proc dentry it is shadowing, but
     whilst it does appear to retain a reference to it, it doesn't appear to
     destroy the reference if the inode goes away.

 (*) hppfs_iget() should perhaps subsume init_inode() and hppfs_read_inode().

 (*) It would appear that all hppfs inodes are the same inode because iget()
     was being called with inode number 0, which forms the lookup key.

Note that the contents of hostfs_kern.c need to be examined:

 (*) hostfs_iget() should perhaps subsume init_inode() and hostfs_read_inode().

 (*) It would appear that all hostfs inodes are the same inode because iget()
     was being called with inode number 0 - which forms the lookup key.

vmcoreinfo: rename vmcoreinfo's macros returning the size

This patchset is for the vmcoreinfo data.

The vmcoreinfo data has the minimum debugging information only for dump
filtering.  makedumpfile (dump filtering command) gets it to distinguish
unnecessary pages, and makedumpfile creates a small dumpfile.

This patch:

VMCOREINFO_SIZE() should be renamed VMCOREINFO_STRUCT_SIZE() since it's always
returning the size of the struct with a given name. This change would allow
VMCOREINFO_TYPEDEF_SIZE() to simply become VMCOREINFO_SIZE() since it need not
be used exclusively for typedefs.

Introduce flags for reserve_bootmem()

This patchset adds a flags variable to reserve_bootmem() and uses the
BOOTMEM_EXCLUSIVE flag in crashkernel reservation code to detect collisions
between crashkernel area and already used memory.

This patch:

Change the reserve_bootmem() function to accept a new flag BOOTMEM_EXCLUSIVE.
If that flag is set, the function returns with -EBUSY if the memory already
has been reserved in the past.  This is to avoid conflicts.

Because that code runs before SMP initialisation, there's no race condition
inside reserve_bootmem_core().

addresses ioremap()ped appropriately using accessory functions rather than

Some adjustments to code are made to reflect the architecture of the
interface, which is a centrally controlled multiport (or, as referred to
from DEC documentation, a serial line multiplexer, going up to 8 lines
originally) rather than a bundle of separate ports.

Types are changed, where applicable, to specify the width of hardware
registers explicitly.  The interrupt handler is now managed in the
->startup() and ->shutdown() calls for consistency with other drivers and

dz: always check if it is safe to console_putchar()

Polled transmission is tricky enough with the DZ11 design.  While "loop" is
set to a high value, conceptually you are not allowed to transmit without
checking whether the device offers the right transmission line (yes, it is the
device that selects the line -- the driver has no control over it other than
disabling the transmitter offered if it is the wrong one), so the loop has to
be run at least once.

Well, the '1977 or PDP11 view of how serial lines should be handled...  Except
that the serial interface used to be quite an impressive board back then

12 years agodrivers/edac: pci: broken parity regression
Bryan Boatright [Thu, 7 Feb 2008 08:14:58 +0000]
drivers/edac: pci: broken parity regression

Using the EDAC code in kernel.org kernel version 2.6.23.8 I am seeing the
following problem:

    In the kernel there is a pci device attribute located in sysfs that is
    checked by the EDAC PCI scanning code. If that attribute is set,
    PCI parity/error scannining is skipped for that device. The attribute
    is:

            broken_parity_status

    as is located in /sys/devices/pci<XXX>/0000:XX:YY.Z directorys for
    PCI devices.

I don't think this check was actually implemented.  I have a misbehaved card
that reports a parity error every 1000 ms:

Nov 25 07:28:43 beta kernel: EDAC PCI: Master Data Parity Error on 0000:05:01.0
Nov 25 07:28:44 beta kernel: EDAC PCI: Master Data Parity Error on 0000:05:01.0
Nov 25 07:28:45 beta kernel: EDAC PCI: Master Data Parity Error on 0000:05:01.0

Setting that card's broken_parity_status bit did not mask the error:

echo "1" > /sys/bus/pci/devices/0000:05:01.0/broken_parity_status

I looked through the EDAC code and did not readily see any reference to
broken_parity_status at all (which makes sense based on the behavior I am
seeing).  I applied the following patch as a proof-of-concept and now EDAC's
PCI parity error reporting behaves as documented:

bryan

Good regression find, bryan. It used to work. sigh.
I added more logic to your patch, for more coverage of the error.

12 years agodrivers-edac: add Cell MC driver
Benjamin Herrenschmidt [Thu, 7 Feb 2008 08:14:53 +0000]
drivers-edac: add Cell MC driver

Adds driver for the Cell memory controller when used without a Hypervisor such
as on the IBM Cell blades.  There might still be some improvements to do to
this such as finding if it's possible to properly obtain more details about
the address of the error but it's good enough already to report CE counts
which is our main priority at the moment.
