[IA64] Avoid .spillpsp directive in handcoded assembly

Some time ago, GAS was fixed to bring the .spillpsp directive in line
with the Intel assembler manual (there was some disagreement as to
whether or not there is a built-in 16-byte offset).  Unfortunately,
there are two places in the kernel where this directive is used in
handwritten assembly files and those of course relied on the "buggy"
behavior.  As a result, when using a "fixed" assembler, the kernel
picks up the UNaT bits from the wrong place (off by 16) and randomly
sets NaT bits on the scratch registers.  This can be noticed easily by
looking at a coredump and finding various scratch registers with
unexpected NaT values.  The patch below fixes this by using the
.spillsp directive instead, which works correctly no matter what
assembler is in use.

[IA64] fix "section mismatch" compile-time-error

I noticed this typo when trying to compile a kernel which had
CONFIG_HOTPLUG turned off.  In that case, __devinit is no longer a
no-op and the compiler then detects a section-conflict.  Fix by using
__devinitdata instead of __devinit.

Same patch also submitted by Darren Williams to fix compilation error
using sim_defconfig (which has CONFIG_HOTPLUG=n).

Bodo Stroesser [Sat, 7 May 2005 04:30:54 +0000]
[PATCH] uml: Fix process exit race

tt-mode closes switch_pipes in exit_thread_tt and kills processes in
switch_to_tt, if the exit_state is EXIT_DEAD or EXIT_ZOMBIE.

In very rare cases the exiting process can be scheduled out after having set
exit_state and closed switch_pipes (from release_task it calls proc_pid_flush,
which might sleep).  If this process is to be restarted, UML failes in
switch_to_tt with:

   write of switch_pipe failed, err = 9

We fix this by closing switch_pipes not in exit_thread_tt, but later in
release_thread_tt.  Additionally, we set switch_pipe[0] = 0 after closing.
switch_to_tt must not kill "from" process depending on its exit_state, but
must kill it after release_thread was processed only, so it examines
switch_pipe[0] for its decision.

[PATCH] uml: S390 preparation, peekusr/pokeusr defined by subarch

s390 needs to change some parts of arch/um/kernel/ptrace.c.  Thus, the code
regarding PEEKUSER and POKEUSER are shifted to arch/um/sys-<subarch>/ptrace.c.

Also s390 debug registers need to be updated, when singlestepping is switched
on / off.  Thus, setting/resetting of singlestepping is centralized in the new
function set_singlestep(), which also inserts the macro
SUBARCH_SET_SINGLESTEP(mode), if defined.

Finally, s390 has the "ieee_instruction_pointer" in its
registers, which also is allowed to be read via

  ptrace( PTRACE_PEEKUSER, getpid(), PT_IEEE_IP, 0);

To implement this feature, sys_ptrace inserts the macro
SUBARCH_PTRACE_SPECIAL, if defined.

Manu Abraham [Thu, 5 May 2005 23:16:01 +0000]
[PATCH] bttv: fix dst i2c read/write timeout failure.

Attached is a patch to bttv which fixes the following problems.

Affected cards and problems:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
o VP-1020 (200103A) Tuning problems, device detection.
o VP-1020 (DST-MOT) Errors during tuning, device detection fails in a while.
o VP-1030 (DST-CI) Tuning sometimes fails after CI commands.
o VP-2031 (DCT-CI) Tuning problems

The timeout happens before the actual timeout occured in the MCU
on the board, and hence the problems.

Changes: (bttv-i2c.diff)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
o Changed the custom wait queue to wait_event_interruptible_timeout()
      - Suggestion by Johannes Stezenbach.

o Fixed the wait queue timeout problem
      - This fixes the timeout problem on various cards.
      - This problem was visible as many
          * Cannot tune to channels, when signal levels are very low.
          * app_info does not work in some conditions for CI based cards
      - Smaller values worked good for newer cards, but the older cards
suffered, settled down to the worst case values that could happen in any
eventuality.

Christoph Hellwig [Thu, 5 May 2005 23:15:58 +0000]
[PATCH] DAC960: add support for Mylex AcceleRAID 4/5/600

This patch adds support for a new class of DAC960 controllers.  It's based
on the GPLed idac320 driver from IBM for Linux 2.4.18.  That driver is a
fork of the 2.4.18 version of DAC960 that adds support for this new type of
controllers (internally called "GEM Series"), that differ from other DAC960
V2 firmware controllers only in the register offsets and removes support
for all others.

This patch instead integrates support for these controllers into the DAC960
driver.

Thanks to Anders Norrbring for pointing me to the idac320 driver and
testing this patch.

No Signed-Off: line because all code is either copy & pasted from IBM's
idac320 driver or support for other controllers in the 2.6 DAC960 driver.

Note: the really odd formating matches the rest of the DAC960 driver.

Paulo Marques [Thu, 5 May 2005 23:15:49 +0000]
[PATCH] setitimer timer expires too early

It seems that the code responsible for this is in kernel/itimer.c:126:

p->signal->real_timer.expires = jiffies + interval;
add_timer(&p->signal->real_timer);

If you request an interval of, lets say 900 usecs, the interval given by
timeval_to_jiffies will be 1.

If you request this when we are half-way between two timer ticks, the
interval will only give 400 usecs.

If we want to guarantee that we never ever give intervals less than
requested, the simple solution would be to change that to:

p->signal->real_timer.expires = jiffies + interval + 1;

This however will produce pathological cases, like having a idle system
being requested 1 ms timeouts will give systematically 2 ms timeouts,
whereas currently it simply gives a few usecs less than 1 ms.

The complex (and more computationally expensive) solution would be to
check the gettimeofday time, and compute the correct number of jiffies.
This way, if we request a 300 usecs timer 200 usecs inside the timer
tick, we can wait just one tick, but not if we are 800 usecs inside the
tick. This would also mean that we would have to lock preemption during
these computations to avoid races, etc.

I've searched the archives but couldn't find this particular issue being
discussed before.

Attached is a patch to do the simple solution, in case anybody thinks
that it should be used.

Nick Piggin [Thu, 5 May 2005 23:15:46 +0000]
[PATCH] __block_write_full_page race fix

When running
fsstress -v -d $DIR/tmp -n 1000 -p 1000 -l 2
on an ext2 filesystem with 1024 byte block size, on SMP i386 with 4096 byte
page size over loopback to an image file on a tmpfs filesystem, I would
very quickly hit
BUG_ON(!buffer_async_write(bh));
in fs/buffer.c:end_buffer_async_write

It seems that more than one request would be submitted for a given bh
at a time.

What would happen is the following:
2 threads doing __mpage_writepages on the same page.
Thread 1 - lock the page first, and enter __block_write_full_page.
Thread 1 - (eg.) mark_buffer_async_write on the first 2 buffers.
Thread 1 - set page writeback, unlock page.
Thread 2 - lock page, wait on page writeback
Thread 1 - submit_bh on the first 2 buffers.
=> both requests complete, none of the page buffers are async_write,
   end_page_writeback is called.
Thread 2 - wakes up. enters __block_write_full_page.
Thread 2 - mark_buffer_async_write on (eg.) the last buffer
Thread 1 - finds the last buffer has async_write set, submit_bh on that.
Thread 2 - submit_bh on the last buffer.
=> oops.

So change __block_write_full_page to explicitly keep track of the last bh
we need to issue, so we don't touch anything after issuing the last
request.

Then, csum_partial_copy_to and csum_partial_copy_from were shifted from

inserted in the calling functions csum_partial_copy_from_user() and

Now, arch/um/kernel/checksum.c is empty and removed.

Bodo Stroesser [Thu, 5 May 2005 23:15:31 +0000]
[PATCH] uml: S390 preparation, abstract host page fault data

This patch removes the arch-specific fault/trap-infos from thread and
skas-regs.

It adds a new struct faultinfo, that is arch-specific defined in
sysdep/faultinfo.h.

The structure is inserted in thread.arch and thread.regs.skas and
thread.regs.tt

Now, segv and other trap-handlers can copy the contents from regs.X.faultinfo
to thread.arch.faultinfo with one simple assignment.

Also, the number of macros necessary is reduced to

FAULT_ADDRESS(struct faultinfo)
    extracts the faulting address from faultinfo

FAULT_WRITE(struct faultinfo)
    extracts the "is_write" flag

SEGV_IS_FIXABLE(struct faultinfo)
    is true for the fixable segvs, i.e. (TRAP == 14)
    on i386

UPT_FAULTINFO(regs)
    result is (struct faultinfo *) to the faultinfo
    in regs->skas.faultinfo

GET_FAULTINFO_FROM_SC(struct faultinfo, struct sigcontext *)
    copies the relevant parts of the sigcontext to
    struct faultinfo.

On SIGSEGV, call user_signal() instead of handle_segv(), if the architecture
provides the information needed in PTRACE_FAULTINFO, or if PTRACE_FAULTINFO is
missing, because segv-stub will provide the info.

The benefit of the change is, that in case of a non-fixable SIGSEGV, we can
give user processes a SIGSEGV, instead of possibly looping on pagefault
handling.

Since handle_segv() sikked arch_fixup() implicitly by passing ip==0 to segv(),
I changed segv() to call arch_fixup() only, if !is_user.
