reiserfs: make sure va_end() is always called after va_start().

A call to va_start() must always be followed by a call to va_end() in the
same function.  In fs/reiserfs/prints.c::print_block() this is not always
the case.  If 'bh' is NULL we'll return without calling va_end().

One could add a call to va_end() before the 'return' statement, but it's

Note that we don't actually clean up the driver properly yet (once loaded,

drivers/gpio/cs5535-gpio.c: add some additional cs5535-specific GPIO functionality

This adds (well, re-adds actually) handling for events/IRQs through cs5535
GPIOs.  In the wild and wooly world of CS5535, setup_event() is for
assigning an IRQ to a GPIO filter/event pair, and set_irq() sets up the
pair to trigger IRQs.

These should really only be used in highly platform-specific drivers (such
as OLPC's DCON driver).  Sadly, because set_irq() uses MSRs, this causes
the driver to become X86-specific.

8 years agortc-cmos: fix suspend/resume
Paul Fox [Thu, 13 Jan 2011 01:00:07 +0000]
rtc-cmos: fix suspend/resume

rtc-cmos was setting suspend/resume hooks at the device_driver level.
However, the platform bus code (drivers/base/platform.c) only looks for
resume hooks at the dev_pm_ops level, or within the platform_driver.

Switch rtc_cmos to use dev_pm_ops so that suspend/resume code is executed
again.

Paul said:

: The user visible symptom in our (XO laptop) case was that rtcwake would
: fail to wake the laptop.  The RTC alarm would expire, but the wakeup
: wasn't unmasked.
:
: As for severity, the impact may have been reduced because if I recall
: correctly, the bug only affected platforms with CONFIG_PNP disabled.

8 years agovgacon: check for efi machine
Yannick Heneault [Thu, 13 Jan 2011 01:00:04 +0000]
vgacon: check for efi machine

It seems there is a small problem of VGA palette corruption on EFI
machine.  When the kernel initializes the architecture, it checks if the
machine is a EFI machine and assumes that a VGA console can exist.

When it initializes the console in vgacon_startup it checks if it can
really use the VGA console.  I think this is where a check is missing.
Currently, the function can fail if a VESA boot mode is detected but not if
a EFI boot mode was used.

Thus vgacon_startup() doesn't fail and initialize the video card for a real
VGA mode.  This function changes the first 16entries of the VGA palette.

When the efifb driver kicks in, the palette is not restored to default
ramp value, thus the 16 first entry remain in a modified state.  The
following patch prevent this corruption.

Turns out this is an arguable defect in the script.

The MAINTAINERS entry for mm is:

MEMORY MANAGEMENT
L: linux-mm@kvack.org
W: http://www.linux-mm.org
S: Maintained
F: include/linux/mm.h
F: mm/

There's a maintainer entry, but no named individual, so the script doesn't
use git history via --git-fallback.

This is also a defect for MAINTAINERS with status entries marked "Orphan"
or "Odd fixes".

The script now checks a section for any "M:" entry and that an "S:" entry
is supported or maintained.  If both those conditions are not satisified,
use --git-fallback as appropriate.

8 years agokptr_restrict for hiding kernel pointers from unprivileged users
Dan Rosenberg [Thu, 13 Jan 2011 00:59:41 +0000]
kptr_restrict for hiding kernel pointers from unprivileged users

Add the %pK printk format specifier and the /proc/sys/kernel/kptr_restrict
sysctl.

The %pK format specifier is designed to hide exposed kernel pointers,
specifically via /proc interfaces.  Exposing these pointers provides an
easy target for kernel write vulnerabilities, since they reveal the
locations of writable structures containing easily triggerable function
pointers.  The behavior of %pK depends on the kptr_restrict sysctl.

If kptr_restrict is set to 0, no deviation from the standard %p behavior
occurs.  If kptr_restrict is set to 1, the default, if the current user
(intended to be a reader via seq_printf(), etc.) does not have CAP_SYSLOG
(currently in the LSM tree), kernel pointers using %pK are printed as 0's.
 If kptr_restrict is set to 2, kernel pointers using %pK are printed as
0's regardless of privileges.  Replacing with 0's was chosen over the
default "(null)", which cannot be parsed by userland %p, which expects
"(nil)".

Amerigo Wang [Thu, 13 Jan 2011 00:59:39 +0000]
kernel: clean up USE_GENERIC_SMP_HELPERS

For arch which needs USE_GENERIC_SMP_HELPERS, it has to select
USE_GENERIC_SMP_HELPERS, rather than leaving a choice to user, since they
don't provide their own implementions.

Also, move on_each_cpu() to kernel/smp.c, it is strange to put it in
kernel/softirq.c.

For arch which doesn't use USE_GENERIC_SMP_HELPERS, e.g.  blackfin, only
on_each_cpu() is compiled.

Andrew Morton [Thu, 13 Jan 2011 00:59:35 +0000]
include/linux/kernel.h: abs(): fix handling of 32-bit unsigneds on 64-bit

Michal reports:

In the framebuffer subsystem the abs() macro is often used as a part of
the calculation of a Manhattan metric, which in turn is used as a measure
of similarity between video modes.  The arguments of abs() are sometimes
unsigned numbers.  This worked fine until commit a49c59c0 ("Make sure the
value in abs() does not get truncated if it is greater than 2^32:) , which
changed the definition of abs() to prevent truncation.  As a result of
this change, in the following piece of code:

u32 a = 0, b = 1;
u32 c = abs(a - b);

'c' will end up with a value of 0xffffffff instead of the expected 0x1.

A problem caused by this change and visible by the end user is that
framebuffer drivers relying on functions from modedb.c will fail to find
high resolution video modes similar to that explicitly requested by the
user if an exact match cannot be found (see e.g.

Fix this by special-casing `long' types within abs().

This patch reduces x86_64 code size a bit - drivers/video/uvesafb.o shrunk
by 15 bytes, presumably because it is doing abs() on 4-byte quantities,
and expanding those to 8-byte longs adds code.

testcase:

#define oldabs(x) ({ \
long __x = (x); \
(__x < 0) ? -__x : __x; \
})

#define newabs(x) ({ \
long ret; \
if (sizeof(x) == sizeof(long)) { \
long __x = (x); \
ret = (__x < 0) ? -__x : __x; \
} else { \
int __x = (x); \
ret = (__x < 0) ? -__x : __x; \
} \
ret; \
})

typedef unsigned int u32;

main()
{
u32 a = 0;
u32 b = 1;
u32 oldc = oldabs(a - b);
u32 newc = newabs(a - b);

printf("%u %u\n", oldc, newc);

kmsg_dump: constrain mtdoops and ramoops to perform their actions only for KMSG_DUMP_PANIC

This series aims to develop logging facility for enterprise use.

It is important to save kernel messages reliably on enterprise system
because they are helpful for diagnosing system.

This series add kmsg_dump() to the paths loosing kernel messages.  The use
case is the following.

[Use case of reboot/poweroff/halt/emergency_restart]

 My company has often experienced the followings in our support service.
 - Customer's system suddenly reboots.
 - Customers ask us to investigate the reason of the reboot.

We recognize the fact itself because boot messages remain in
/var/log/messages.  However, we can't investigate the reason why the
system rebooted, because the last messages don't remain.  And off course
we can't explain the reason.

We can solve above problem with this patch as follows.

 Case1: reboot with command
   - We can see "Restarting system with command:" or ""Restarting system.".

 Case2: halt with command
   - We can see "System halted.".

 Case3: poweroff with command
   - We can see " Power down.".

 Case4: emergency_restart with sysrq.
   - We can see "Sysrq:" outputted in __handle_sysrq().

 Case5: emergency_restart with softdog.
   - We can see "Initiating system reboot" in watchdog_fire().

So, we can distinguish the reason of reboot, poweroff, halt and emergency_restart.

If customer executed reboot command, you may think the customer should
know the fact.  However, they often claim they don't execute the command
when they rebooted system by mistake.

No message remains on the current Linux kernel, so we can't show the proof
to the customer.  This patch improves this situation.

This patch:

Alters mtdoops and ramoops to perform their actions only for
KMSG_DUMP_PANIC, KMSG_DUMP_OOPS and KMSG_DUMP_KEXEC because they would
like to log crashes only.

drivers/video/backlight/l4f00242t03.c: fix reset sequence

The reset command is part of the init sequence and it take effect
only if the lcd is powered.

The effect of the bug was that the sequence:
set lcd power_state to FB_BLANK_POWERDOWN
set lcd power_state to FB_BLANK_UNBLANK
Did not produced a complete reboot of the LCD which was showing fuzzy
colours.

This was not experienced before implementing correctly all the LCD power
states with the patch [1].  Since before the patch [1] the regulators were
not touched and the LCD shutdown was reached with a register write.  After
the patch [1] a complete boot sequence with an initial reset is needed for
the display every time the LCD is powered up.

leds-lp5521: modify the way of setting led device name

Currently the led device name is fetched from the device_type in
I2C_BOARD_INFO which comes from the platform data.  This name is in turn
used to create an entry in sysfs.

If there exists two or more lp5521 on a particular platform, the
device_type in I2C_BOARD_INFO has to be the same, else lp5521 driver probe
wont be called and if used so, results in run time warning "cannot create
sysfs with same name" and hence a failure.

The name that is used to create sysfs entry is to be passed by the struct
led_platform_data.  Hence adding an element of type const char * and
change in lp5521 driver to use this name in creating the led device if
present else use the name obtained by I2C_BOARD_INFO.

leds: leds-lp5523: modify the way of setting led device name

Currently all leds channels begins with string lp5523.  Patch adds a
possibility to provide name via platform data.  This makes it possible to
have several chips without overlapping sysfs names.

8 years agotools: create power/x86/x86_energy_perf_policy
Len Brown [Sat, 23 Oct 2010 03:53:03 +0000]
tools: create power/x86/x86_energy_perf_policy

MSR_IA32_ENERGY_PERF_BIAS first became available on Westmere Xeon.
It is implemented in all Sandy Bridge processors -- mobile, desktop and server.
It is expected to become increasingly important in subsequent generations.

x86_energy_perf_policy is a user-space utility to set the
hardware energy vs performance policy hint in the processor.
Most systems would benefit from "x86_energy_perf_policy normal"
at system startup, as the hardware default is maximum performance
at the expense of energy efficiency.

See x86_energy_perf_policy.8 man page for more information.

Background:

Linux-2.6.36 added "epb" to /proc/cpuinfo to indicate
if an x86 processor supports MSR_IA32_ENERGY_PERF_BIAS,
without actually modifying the MSR.

In March, 2010, Venkatesh Pallipadi proposed a small driver
that programmed MSR_IA32_ENERGY_PERF_BIAS, based on
the cpufreq governor in use.  It also offered
a boot-time cmdline option to override.
http://lkml.org/lkml/2010/3/4/457
But hiding the hardware policy behind the
governor choice was deemed "kinda icky".

In June, 2010, I proposed a generic user/kernel API to
generalize the power/performance policy trade-off.
"RFC: /sys/power/policy_preference"
http://lkml.org/lkml/2010/6/16/399
That is my preference for implementing this capability,
but I received no support on the list.

So in September, 2010, I sent x86_energy_perf_policy.c to LKML,
a user-space utility that scribbles directly to the MSR.
http://lkml.org/lkml/2010/9/28/246

Here is that same utility, after responding to some review feedback,
to live in tools/power/, where it is easily found.

tools: create power/x86/turbostat

turbostat is a Linux tool to observe proper operation
of Intel(R) Turbo Boost Technology.

turbostat displays the actual processor frequency
on x86 processors that include APERF and MPERF MSRs.

Note that turbostat is of limited utility on Linux
kernels 2.6.29 and older, as acpi_cpufreq cleared
APERF/MPERF up through that release.

On Intel Core i3/i5/i7 (Nehalem) and newer processors,
turbostat also displays residency in idle power saving states,
which are necessary for diagnosing any cpuidle issues
that may have an effect on turbo-mode.

See the turbostat.8 man page for example usage.

Previous to the last GTT rework we always rewrote the GTT then unmapped the
object, somehow this got reversed in the rework in 2.6.37-rc5 timeframe.

This fix needs to go to stable in an alternate form since the code changed.
