This is at the request of the glibc folks, who want to use these bits

David Gibson [Thu, 10 Nov 2005 01:56:55 +0000]
[PATCH] powerpc: Consolidate asm compatibility macros

This patch consolidates macros used to generate assembly for
compatibility across different CPUs or configs.  A new header,
asm-powerpc/asm-compat.h contains the main compatibility macros.  It
uses some preprocessor magic to make the macros suitable both for use
in .S files, and in inline asm in .c files.  Headers (bitops.h,
uaccess.h, atomic.h, bug.h) which had their own such compatibility
macros are changed to use asm-compat.h.

ppc_asm.h is now for use in .S files *only*, and a #error enforces
that.  As such, we're a lot more careless about namespace pollution
here than in asm-compat.h.

While we're at it, this patch adds a call to the PPC405_ERR77 macro in
futex.h which should have had it already, but didn't.

Built and booted on pSeries, Maple and iSeries (ARCH=powerpc).  Built

David Gibson [Thu, 10 Nov 2005 00:50:16 +0000]
[PATCH] powerpc: Merge cacheflush.h and cache.h

The ppc32 and ppc64 versions of cacheflush.h were almost identical.
The two versions of cache.h are fairly similar, except for a bunch of
register definitions in the ppc32 version which probably belong better
elsewhere.  This patch, therefore, merges both headers.  Notable
points:
- there are several functions in cacheflush.h which exist only
on ppc32 or only on ppc64.  These are handled by #ifdef for now, but
these should probably be consolidated, along with the actual code
behind them later.
- Confusingly, both ppc32 and ppc64 have a
flush_dcache_range(), but they're subtly different: it uses dcbf on
ppc32 and dcbst on ppc64, ppc64 has a flush_inval_dcache_range() which
uses dcbf.  These too should be merged and consolidated later.
- Also flush_dcache_range() was defined in cacheflush.h on
ppc64, and in cache.h on ppc32.  In the merged version it's in
cacheflush.h
- On ppc32 flush_icache_range() is a normal function from
misc.S.  On ppc64, it was wrapper, testing a feature bit before
calling __flush_icache_range() which does the actual flush.  This
patch takes the ppc64 approach, which amounts to no change on ppc32,
since CPU_FTR_COHERENT_ICACHE will never be set there, but does mean
renaming flush_icache_range() to __flush_icache_range() in
arch/ppc/kernel/misc.S and arch/powerpc/kernel/misc_32.S
- The PReP register info from asm-ppc/cache.h has moved to
arch/ppc/platforms/prep_setup.c
- The 8xx register info from asm-ppc/cache.h has moved to a
new asm-powerpc/reg_8xx.h, included from reg.h
- flush_dcache_all() was defined on ppc32 (only), but was
never called (although it was exported).  Thus this patch removes it
from cacheflush.h and from ARCH=powerpc (misc_32.S) entirely.  It's
left in ARCH=ppc for now, with the prototype moved to ppc_ksyms.c.

[PATCH] ppc64: PCI error event dispatcher

12-eeh-event-dispatcher.patch

ppc64: EEH Recovery dispatcher thread

This patch adds a mechanism to create recovery threads when an
EEH event is received.  Since an EEH freeze state may be detected
within an interrupt context, we need to get out of the interrupt
context before starting recovery. This dispatcher does this in
two steps: first, it uses a workqueue to get out, and then
lanuches a kernel thread, so that the recovery routine can
sleep for exteded periods without upseting the keventd.

A kernel thread is created with each EEH event, rather than
having one long-running daemon started at boot time.  This is
because it is anticipated that EEH events will be very rare
(very very rare, ideally) and so its pointless to cluter the
process tables with a daemon that will almost never run.

[PATCH] powerpc: Move various ppc64 files with no ppc32 equivalent to powerpc

This patch moves a bunch of files from arch/ppc64 and
include/asm-ppc64 which have no equivalents in ppc32 code into
arch/powerpc and include/asm-powerpc.  The file affected are:
abs_addr.h
compat.h
lppaca.h
paca.h
tce.h
cpu_setup_power4.S
ioctl32.c
firmware.c
pacaData.c

The only changes apart from the move and corresponding Makefile
changes are:
- #ifndef/#define in includes updated to _ASM_POWERPC_ form
- trailing whitespace removed
- comments giving full paths removed
- pacaData.c renamed paca.c to remove studlyCaps

[PATCH] powerpc: Merge signal.h

Having already merged the ppc and ppc64 versions of signal.c, this
patch finishes the job by merging signal.h.  The two versions were
almost identical already.  Notable changes:
- We use BITS_PER_LONG to correctly size sigset_t
- Remove some uneeded #includes and struct forward
declarations.  This does mean adding an include to signal_32.c which
relied on the indirect inclusion of sigcontext.h
- As the ppc64 version, the merged signal.h has prototypes for
do_signal() and do_signal32().  Thus remove extra prototypes from
ppc_ksyms.c which had them directly.

Built and booted on POWER5 LPAR (ARCH=ppc64 and ARCH=powerpc).  Built
for 32-bit powermac (ARCH=ppc and ARCH=powerpc) and Walnut (ARCH=ppc).

While 'sync' is not technically correct, as a recovery is *not* a 'sync', I
think it is the most servicable word here.  Also 'action' is a strong word
than 'mode'.

  to stop threads any more)

   access.  This easily avoid certain races and is completely consistant with
   other interfaces (ioctl and /proc/mdstat both always lock against
   reconfiguration).

3/ raid5 attributes must check that the 'conf' structure actually exists
   (the array could have been stopped while an attribute file was open).

4/ A missing 'kfree' from when the raid5_conf_t was converted to have a
   kobject embedded, and then converted back again.

NeilBrown [Wed, 9 Nov 2005 05:39:36 +0000]
[PATCH] md: allow md arrays to be started read-only (module parameter).

When an md array is started, the superblock will be written, and resync may
commense.  This is not good if you want to be completely read-only as, for
example, when preparing to resume from a suspend-to-disk image.

So introduce a module parameter "start_ro" which can be set
to '1' at boot, at module load, or via
  /sys/module/md_mod/parameters/start_ro

When this is set, new arrays get an 'auto-ro' mode, which disables all
internal io (superblock updates, resync, recovery) and is automatically
switched to 'rw' when the first write request arrives.

The array can be set to true 'ro' mode using 'mdadm -r' before the first
write request, or resync can be started without a write using 'mdadm -w'.

missing device.  This turns out not to be practical in sysfs for a number
of reasons.

result of 'bdevname'.  This is stable and should be unique.

14 years ago[PATCH] md: support BIO_RW_BARRIER for md/raid1
NeilBrown [Wed, 9 Nov 2005 05:39:34 +0000]
[PATCH] md: support BIO_RW_BARRIER for md/raid1

We can only accept BARRIER requests if all slaves handle
barriers, and that can, of course, change with time....

So we keep track of whether the whole array seems safe for barriers,
and also whether each individual rdev handles barriers.

We initially assumes barriers are OK.

When writing the superblock we try a barrier, and if that fails, we flag
things for no-barriers.  This will usually clear the flags fairly quickly.

If writing the superblock finds that BIO_RW_BARRIER is -ENOTSUPP, we need to
resubmit, so introduce function "md_super_wait" which waits for requests to
finish, and retries ENOTSUPP requests without the barrier flag.

When writing the real raid1, write requests which were BIO_RW_BARRIER but
which aresn't supported need to be retried.  So raid1d is enhanced to do this,
and when any bio write completes (i.e.  no retry needed) we remove it from the
r1bio, so that devices needing retry are easy to find.

We should hardly ever get -ENOTSUPP errors when writing data to the raid.
It should only happen if:
  1/ the device used to support BARRIER, but now doesn't.  Few devices
     change like this, though raid1 can!
or
  2/ the array has no persistent superblock, so there was no opportunity to
     pre-test for barriers when writing the superblock.

[PATCH] md: better handling of readerrors with raid5.

This patch changes the behaviour of raid5 when it gets a read error.
Instead of just failing the device, it tried to find out what should have
been there, and writes it over the bad block.  For some media-errors, this
has a reasonable chance of fixing the error.  If the write succeeds, and a
subsequent read succeeds as well, raid5 decided the address is OK and
conitnues.

Instead of failing a drive on read-error, we attempt to re-write the block,
and then re-read.  If that all works, we allow the device to remain in the
array.
