ide: add ide_use_fast_pio() helper (v3)

* add ide_use_fast_pio() helper for use by host drivers

* add DMA capability and hwif->autodma checks to ide_use_dma()

  - au1xxx-ide/it8213/it821x drivers didn't check for (id->capability & 1)

    [ for the IT8211/2 in SMART mode this check shouldn't be made but since
      in it821x_fixups() we set DMA bit explicitly:

               if(strstr(id->model, "Integrated Technology Express")) {
                       /* In raid mode the ident block is slightly buggy
                          We need to set the bits so that the IDE layer knows
                          LBA28. LBA48 and DMA ar valid */
                       id->capability |= 3;            /* LBA28, DMA */

       we are better off using generic helper if we can ]

  - ide-cris driver didn't set ->autodma

    [ before the patch hwif->autodma was only checked in the chipset specific
      hwif->ide_dma_check implementations, for ide-cris it is cris_dma_check()
      function so there no behavior change here ]

drivers/ide: PATA driver for Celleb

This is the patch (based on 2.6.19-rc4) for PATA controller of
Toshiba Cell reference set(Celleb). The reference set consists
of Cell, 512MB memory, Super Companion Chip(SCC) and some
peripherals such as HDD, GbE, etc. You can see brief explanation
and picture of Cell reference set at following URLs.

    http://www.toshiba.co.jp/about/press/2005_09/pr2001.htm
    http://cell-industries.com/toshiba_announces.php

We use a drivers/ide driver because its design is more suitable for
SCC IDE controller than libata driver. Since SCC supports only 32bit
read/write, we must override many callbacks of ata_port_operations
by modifying generic helpers. Each time the libata common code is
updated, we must update those modified helpers. It is very hard for us.
But we will try to implement the libata driver as needed.

  don't support MWDMA2;

- ide_dma_on() method upon failure to set drive to MWDMA2 re-tunes already
  tuned PIO mode and calls ide_dma_off() method instead of returning error;

- ide_dma_off() method sets drive->current_speed while it doesn't actually
  change (only the PIO timings are re-loaded into the chip's registers);

- init_hwif() method forcibly sets/resets both "drive DMA capable" bits while
  this is properly handled by ide_dma_{on,off}() methods being called later...

A ZIP or similar with unformatted media will cause crashes when attempts
are made to read/write it in some cases. This is because bs_factor is
zero and we divide by it causing an oops.

As the size of a non-accessible/non-existant media is really a bit of a
zen question it doesn't matter if non-existant media is 512 bytes per
sector or zero. Setting it to 1 causes us to generate 512 bytes/sector
accesses and error properly.

but one of DMA transfer modes is already enabled on the device by the BIOS.

13 years ago[PATCH] knfsd: stop NFSD writes from being broken into lots of little writes to files...
NeilBrown [Fri, 16 Feb 2007 09:28:38 +0000]
[PATCH] knfsd: stop NFSD writes from being broken into lots of little writes to filesystem

When NFSD receives a write request, the data is typically in a number of
1448 byte segments and writev is used to collect them together.

Unfortunately, generic_file_buffered_write passes these to the filesystem
one at a time, so an e.g.  32K over-write becomes a series of partial-page
writes to each page, causing the filesystem to have to pre-read those pages
- wasted effort.

generic_file_buffered_write handles one segment of the vector at a time as
it has to pre-fault in each segment to avoid deadlocks.  When writing from
kernel-space (and nfsd does) this is not an issue, so
generic_file_buffered_write does not need to break and iovec from nfsd into
little pieces.

This patch avoids the splitting when  get_fs is KERNEL_DS as it is
from NFSd.

[PATCH] knfsd: nfsd4: fix handling of directories without default ACLs

When setting an ACL that lacks inheritable ACEs on a directory, we should set
a default ACL of zero length, not a default ACL with all bits denied.

J. Bruce Fields [Fri, 16 Feb 2007 09:28:36 +0000]
[PATCH] knfsd: nfsd4: acls: avoid unnecessary denies

We're inserting deny's between some ACEs in order to enforce posix draft acl
semantics which prevent permissions from accumulating across entries in an
acl.

That's fine, but we're doing that by inserting a deny after *every* allow,
which is overkill.  We shouldn't be adding them in places where they actually
make no difference.

Also replaced some helper functions for creating acl entries; I prefer just
assigning directly to the struct fields--it takes a few more lines, but the
field names provide some documentation that I think makes the result easier
understand.

J. Bruce Fields [Fri, 16 Feb 2007 09:28:28 +0000]
[PATCH] knfsd: nfsd4: relax checking of ACL inheritance bits

The rfc allows us to be more permissive about the ACL inheritance bits we
accept:

"If the server supports a single "inherit ACE" flag that applies to
both files and directories, the server may reject the request
(i.e., requiring the client to set both the file and directory
inheritance flags). The server may also accept the request and
silently turn on the ACE4_DIRECTORY_INHERIT_ACE flag."

Let's take the latter option--the ACL is a complex attribute that could be
rejected for a wide variety of reasons, and the protocol gives us little
ability to explain the reason for the rejection, so erroring out is a
user-unfriendly last resort.

[PATCH] knfsd: nfsd4: fix non-terminated string

The server name is expected to be a null-terminated string, so we can't pass
in the raw client identifier.

What's more, the client identifier is just a binary, not necessarily
printable, blob.  Let's just use the ip address instead.  The server name
appears to exist just to help debugging by making some printk's more
informative.

Note that the string is copies into the rpc client structure, so the pointer
to the local variable does not outlive the function call.

Ingo Molnar [Fri, 16 Feb 2007 09:28:24 +0000]
[PATCH] genirq: do not mask interrupts by default

Never mask interrupts immediately upon request.  Disabling interrupts in
high-performance codepaths is rare, and on the other hand this change could
recover lost edges (or even other types of lost interrupts) by conservatively
only masking interrupts after they happen.  (NOTE: with this change the
highlevel irq-disable code still soft-disables this IRQ line - and if such an
interrupt happens then the IRQ flow handler keeps the IRQ masked.)

Mark i8529A controllers as 'never loses an edge'.

Paul E. McKenney [Fri, 16 Feb 2007 09:28:22 +0000]
[PATCH] posix timers: RCU optimization for clock_gettime()

Use RCU to avoid the need to acquire tasklist_lock in the single-threaded
case of clock_gettime().  It still acquires tasklist_lock when for a
(potentially multithreaded) process.  This change allows realtime
applications to frequently monitor CPU consumption of individual tasks, as
requested (and now deployed) by some off-list users.

This has been in Ingo Molnar's -rt patchset since late 2005 with no
problems reported, and tests successfully on 2.6.20-rc6, so I believe that
it is long-since ready for mainline adoption.

[PATCH] Add debugging feature /proc/timer_stat

Add /proc/timer_stats support: debugging feature to profile timer expiration.
Both the starting site, process/PID and the expiration function is captured.
This allows the quick identification of timer event sources in a system.

Sample output:

13 years ago[PATCH] i386 rework local apic timer calibration
Thomas Gleixner [Fri, 16 Feb 2007 09:28:06 +0000]
[PATCH] i386 rework local apic timer calibration

The local apic timer calibration has two problem cases:

1.  The calibration is based on readout of the PIT/HPET timer to detect the
   wrap of the periodic tick.  It happens that a box gets stuck in the
   calibration loop due to a PIT with a broken readout function.

2.  CoreDuo boxen show a sporadic PIT runs too slow defect, which results
   in a wrong lapic calibration.  The PIT goes back to normal operation once
   the lapic timer is switched to periodic mode.

Both are existing and unfixed problems in the current upstream kernel and
prevent certain laptops and other systems from booting Linux.

Rework the code to address both problems:

- Make the calibration interrupt driven.  This removes the wait_timer_tick
  magic hackery from lapic.c and time_hpet.c.  The clockevents framework
  allows easy substitution of the global tick event handler for the
  calibration.  This is more accurate than monitoring jiffies.  At this point
  of the boot process, nothing disturbes the interrupt delivery, so the
  results are very accurate.

- Verify the calibration against the PM timer, when available by using the
  early access function.  When the measured calibration period is outside of
  an one percent window, then the lapic timer calibration is adjusted to the
  pm timer result.

- Verify the calibration by running the lapic timer with the calibration
  handler.  Disable lapic timer in case of deviation.

This also removes the "synchronization" of the local apic timer to the global
tick.  This synchronization never worked, as there is no way to synchronize
PIT(HPET) and local APIC timer.  The synchronization by waiting for the tick
just alignes the local APIC timer for the first events, but later the events
drift away due to the different clocks.  Removing the "sync" is just
randomizing the asynchronous behaviour at setup time.

[PATCH] clockevents: add core functionality

Architectures register their clock event devices, in the clock events core.
Users of the clockevents core can get clock event devices for their use.  The
clockevents core code provides notification mechanisms for various clock
related management events.

This allows to control the clock event devices without the architectures
having to worry about the details of function assignment.  This is also a
preliminary for high resolution timers and dynamic ticks to allow the core
code to control the clock functionality without intrusive changes to the
architecture code.

For CONFIG_NO_HZ we need to calculate the next timer wheel event based on a
given jiffie value.  Extend the existing code to allow the extra 'now'
argument.  Provide a compability function for the existing implementations to
call the function with now == jiffies.  (This also solves the racyness of the
original code vs.  jiffies changing during the iteration.)

No functional changes to existing users of this infrastructure.

13 years ago[PATCH] Fix cascade lookup of next_timer_interrupt
Thomas Gleixner [Fri, 16 Feb 2007 09:27:46 +0000]
[PATCH] Fix cascade lookup of next_timer_interrupt

When searching for the next pending timer in the timer wheel we need to take
the cascade into account.  The current code has several problems:

 1. it looks into the previous cascade
 2. it ignores a pending cascade
 3. it ignores multiple cascades

Change the cascade lookup, so it calculates the array index from the point of
the next cascade and always look at the cascade buckets, when the cascade is
pending, i.e.  gets executed in the next timer softirq.  When multiple
cascades are pending, then lookup the next buckets too.

Marcelo Tosatti [Fri, 16 Feb 2007 09:27:44 +0000]
[PATCH] Mark TSC on GeodeLX reliable

The Geode can safely use the TSC for highres, since:

1) Does not support frequency scaling,

2) The TSC _does_ count when the CPU is halted.  Furthermore, the Geode
   supports a mode called "suspension on halt", where Suspend mode (which
   interacts with the power management states) is entered.  TSC counting
   during suspend mode is controlled by bit 8 of the Bus Controller
   Configuration Register #0 (thanks Tom!).

3) no SMP :)

Check if "RTSC counts during suspension" and remove the requirement for
verification, so the clocksource code can safely select it as an timesource
for the highres timers subsystem.

[PATCH] x86: rewrite SMP TSC sync code

make the TSC synchronization code more robust, and unify it between x86_64 and
i386.

The biggest change is the removal of the 'fix up TSCs' code on x86_64 and
i386, in some rare cases it was /causing/ time-warps on SMP systems.

The new code only checks for TSC asynchronity - and if it can prove a
time-warp (if it can observe the TSC going backwards when going from one CPU
to another within a critical section), then the TSC clock-source is turned
off.

The TSC synchronization-checking code also got moved into a separate file.

Jeff Dike [Fri, 16 Feb 2007 09:27:21 +0000]
[PATCH] uml: fix 2.6.20 hang

A previous cleanup misused need_poll, which had a fairly broken interface.
It implemented a growable array, changing the used elements count itself,
but leaving it up to the caller to fill in the actual elements, including
the entire array if the array had to be reallocated.  This worked because
the previous users were switching between two such structures, and the
elements were copied from the inactive array to the active array after
making sure the active array had enough room.

maybe_sigio_broken was made to use need_poll, but it was operating on a
single array, so when the buffer was reallocated, the previous contents
were lost.

This patch makes need_poll implement more sane semantics.  It merely
assures that the array is of the proper size and that the contents are
preserved.  It is up to the caller to adjust the used elements count and to
ensure that the proper elements are resent.

This manifested itself as a hang in 2.6.20 as the uninitialized buffer
convinced UML that one of its own file descriptors didn't support SIGIO and
needed to be watched by poll in a separate thread.  The result was an
interrupt flood as control traffic over this descriptor sparked interrupts,
which resulted in more control traffic, ad nauseum.
