[ALSA] _snd_cmipci_uswitch_put doesn't set zero flags

Playing with spdif output on cmipci i've noticed the SPDO5V option does
not change appropriate bits the register.
The _snd_cmipci_uswitch_put checks the change in flags in wrong way.
If 'active' state of an option corresponds to a _zero_ bits in a hw
register then function fails. The SPDO5V is the sample.
In the most cases 'active' state of option is set through an non-zerio
bits in a register. This case works fine.
The fix attached.
Unfortunately i was unable to change spdif output voltage anyway.
Although the register changes right at least.

been linked to several problem reports with IO-APIC and the timer.
Machines either don't boot because the timer doesn't happen, or we get
double timer interrupts because we end up double-routing the timer irq
through multiple interfaces.

Patches to fix this cleanup exist (and have been confirmed to work fine
at least for some of the affected cases) and we'll revisit it for
2.6.21, but this late in the -rc series we're better off just reverting

[MIPS] pnx8550: Fix write_config_byte() PCI config space accessor

There's a serious typo in the function:
  arch/mips/pci/ops-pnx8550.c:write_config_byte()

The parameter passed to the function config_access() is PCI_CMD_CONFIG_READ
instead of PCI_CMD_CONFIG_WRITE. This renders any attempts to write
a single byte to the PCI configuration registers useless.

This problem does not exist for write_config_word() nor write_config_dword().

This problem has been there since kernel v2.6.17 and is still there
as of kernel v2.6.19.1.

Russell King [Sat, 30 Dec 2006 23:17:40 +0000]
[ARM] Resolve fuse and direct-IO failures due to missing cache flushes

fuse does not work on ARM due to cache incoherency issues - fuse wants
to use get_user_pages() to copy data from the current process into
kernel space.  However, since this accesses userspace via the kernel
mapping, the kernel mapping can be out of date wrt data written to
userspace.

This can lead to unpredictable behaviour (in the case of fuse) or data
corruption for direct-IO.

This resolves debian bug #402876

Russell King [Sat, 30 Dec 2006 22:24:19 +0000]
[ARM] pass vma for flush_anon_page()

Since get_user_pages() may be used with processes other than the
current process and calls flush_anon_page(), flush_anon_page() has to
cope in some way with non-current processes.

It may not be appropriate, or even desirable to flush a region of
virtual memory cache in the current process when that is different to
the process that we want the flush to occur for.

Therefore, pass the vma into flush_anon_page() so that the architecture
can work out whether the 'vmaddr' is for the current process or not.

[PATCH] fix garbage instead of zeroes in UFS

Looks like this is the problem, which point Al Viro some time ago:

ufs's get_block callback allocates 16k of disk at a time, and links that
entire 16k into the file's metadata.  But because get_block is called for only
a single buffer_head (a 2k buffer_head in this case?) we are only able to tell
the VFS that this 2k is buffer_new().

So when ufs_getfrag_block() is later called to map some more data in the file,
and when that data resides within the remaining 14k of this fragment,
ufs_getfrag_block() will incorrectly return a !buffer_new() buffer_head.

I don't see _right_ way to do nullification of whole block, if use inode
page cache, some pages may be outside of inode limits (inode size), and
will be lost; if use blockdev page cache it is possible to zero real data,
if later inode page cache will be used.

The simpliest way, as can I see usage of block device page cache, but not only
mark dirty, but also sync it during "nullification".  I use my simple tests
collection, which I used for check that create,open,write,read,close works on
ufs, and I see that this patch makes ufs code 18% slower then before.

Christoph Lameter [Sat, 6 Jan 2007 00:37:02 +0000]
[PATCH] Check for populated zone in __drain_pages

Both process_zones() and drain_node_pages() check for populated zones
before touching pagesets.  However, __drain_pages does not do so,

This may result in a NULL pointer dereference for pagesets in unpopulated
zones if a NUMA setup is combined with cpu hotplug.

Initially the unpopulated zone has the pcp pointers pointing to the boot
pagesets.  Since the zone is not populated the boot pageset pointers will
not be changed during page allocator and slab bootstrap.

If a cpu is later brought down (first call to __drain_pages()) then the pcp
pointers for cpus in unpopulated zones are set to NULL since __drain_pages
does not first check for an unpopulated zone.

If the cpu is then brought up again then we call process_zones() which will
ignore the unpopulated zone.  So the pageset pointers will still be NULL.

If the cpu is then again brought down then __drain_pages will attempt to
drain pages by following the NULL pageset pointer for unpopulated zones.

The HPT37x driver very carefully handles DMA completions and the needed
fixups are done on pci registers 0x50 and 0x52.  This is unfortunate
because the actual registers are 0x50 and 0x54.  Fixing this offset cures
the second channel problems reported.

Secondly there are some problems with the HPT370 and certain ATA drives.
The filter code however only filters ATAPI devices due to a reversed type

[PATCH] KVM: MMU: Support emulated writes into RAM

As the mmu write protects guest page table, we emulate those writes.  Since
they are not mmio, there is no need to go to userspace to perform them.

So, perform the writes in the kernel if possible, and notify the mmu about
them so it can take the approriate action.

[PATCH] KVM: MMU: Shadow page table caching

Define a hashtable for caching shadow page tables. Look up the cache on
context switch (cr3 change) or during page faults.

The key to the cache is a combination of
- the guest page table frame number
- the number of paging levels in the guest
   * we can cache real mode, 32-bit mode, pae, and long mode page
     tables simultaneously.  this is useful for smp bootup.
- the guest page table table
   * some kernels use a page as both a page table and a page directory.  this
     allows multiple shadow pages to exist for that page, one per level
- the "quadrant"
   * 32-bit mode page tables span 4MB, whereas a shadow page table spans
     2MB.  similarly, a 32-bit page directory spans 4GB, while a shadow
     page directory spans 1GB.  the quadrant allows caching up to 4 shadow page
     tables for one guest page in one level.
- a "metaphysical" bit
   * for real mode, and for pse pages, there is no guest page table, so set
     the bit to avoid write protecting the page.

useful to avoid excessive exits due to changing, for example, the ts flag.

It also means the kvm's copy of cr0 and cr4 may be stale with respect to these
bits.  most of the time this doesn't matter as these bits are not very
interesting.  Other times, however (for example when returning cr0 to
userspace), they are, so get the fresh contents of these bits from the guest
by means of a new arch operation.

[PATCH] Update the rtc-rs5c372 driver

 Bugfixes:
  - Handle RTCs which are configured to use 12-hour mode.
  - Never report bogus/un-initialized times.
  - Displaying "raw trim" requires not masking it first!
  - Fix the sysfs and procfs display of crystal and trim data.

 Features:
  - Handle other RTCs in this family, notably rv5c386/rv5c387.
  - Declare the other registers.
  - Provide alarm get/set functionality.
  - Handle AIE and UIE; but no IRQ handling yet.

 Cleanup:
  - Shrink object by not including needless sysfs or procfs support
  - We don't need no steenkin' forward declarations.  (Except one.)

Until the I2C framework merges "new style" driver support, matching
the driver model better, using rv5c chips or alarm IRQs requires a
separate board-specific patch.  (And an IRQ handler, handing off labor
through a work_struct...)

This uses the "method 3" register reads, but notes that it's done
to work around an evident i2c adapter driver bug.

Eric Sandeen [Sat, 6 Jan 2007 00:36:36 +0000]
[PATCH] fix memory corruption from misinterpreted bad_inode_ops return values

CVE-2006-5753 is for a case where an inode can be marked bad, switching
the ops to bad_inode_ops, which are all connected as:

static int return_EIO(void)
{
        return -EIO;
}

#define EIO_ERROR ((void *) (return_EIO))

static struct inode_operations bad_inode_ops =
{
        .create         = bad_inode_create
...etc...

The problem here is that the void cast causes return types to not be
promoted, and for ops such as listxattr which expect more than 32 bits of
return value, the 32-bit -EIO is interpreted as a large positive 64-bit
number, i.e. 0x00000000fffffffa instead of 0xfffffffa.

This goes particularly badly when the return value is taken as a number of
bytes to copy into, say, a user's buffer for example...

I originally had coded up the fix by creating a return_EIO_<TYPE> macro
for each return type, like this:

static int return_EIO_int(void)
{
return -EIO;
}
#define EIO_ERROR_INT ((void *) (return_EIO_int))

static struct inode_operations bad_inode_ops =
{
.create = EIO_ERROR_INT,
...etc...

but Al felt that it was probably better to create an EIO-returner for each
actual op signature.  Since so few ops share a signature, I just went ahead
& created an EIO function for each individual file & inode op that returns
a value.

[PATCH] Sanely size hash tables when using large base pages

At the moment the inode/dentry cache hash tables (common by way of
alloc_large_system_hash()) are incorrectly sized by their respective
detection logic when we attempt to use large base pages on systems with
little memory.

This results in odd behaviour when using a 64kB PAGE_SIZE, such as:

Dentry cache hash table entries: 8192 (order: -1, 32768 bytes)
Inode-cache hash table entries: 4096 (order: -2, 16384 bytes)

The mount cache hash table is seemingly the only one that gets this right
by directly taking PAGE_SIZE in to account.

The following patch attempts to catch the bogus values and round it up to
at least 0-order.

13 years ago[PATCH] Fix BUG at drivers/scsi/scsi_lib.c:1118 caused by "pktsetup dvd /dev/sr0"
Christoph Hellwig [Sat, 6 Jan 2007 00:36:26 +0000]
[PATCH] Fix BUG at drivers/scsi/scsi_lib.c:1118 caused by "pktsetup dvd /dev/sr0"

Fix http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=7667

This is because the packet driver tries to send down read/write BLOCK_PC
commands that don't use a bio and do not use sg lists.

The right fix is to replace all the packet_command stuff in the packet
driver by scsi_execute() which needs to be lifted from scsi code to
the block code for that.

Fix the bug for now.  It's not the full way to a generic execute block pc
infrastcuture but fixes the bug for the time being.
