12 years ago[PATCH] x86: Drop cc-options call for all options supported in gcc 3.2+
Andi Kleen [Wed, 2 May 2007 17:27:06 +0000]
[PATCH] x86: Drop cc-options call for all options supported in gcc 3.2+

The kernel only supports gcc 3.2+ now so it doesn't make sense
anymore to explicitely check for options this compiler version
already has.

This actually fixes a bug. The -mprefered-stack-boundary check
never worked because gcc rightly complains

CC arch/i386/kernel/asm-offsets.s
cc1: -mpreferred-stack-boundary=2 is not between 4 and 12

We just never saw the error because of cc-options.
I changed it to 4 to actually work.

Tested by compiling i386 and x86-64 defconfig with gcc 3.2.

Should speed up the build time a tiny bit and improve
stack usage on i386 slightly.

[PATCH] x86-64: x86_64 make NMI use PERFCTR1 for architectural perfmon (take 2)

Hello,

This patch against 2.6.20-git14 makes the NMI watchdog use PERFSEL1/PERFCTR1
instead of PERFSEL0/PERFCTR0 on processors supporting Intel architectural
perfmon, such as Intel Core 2. Although all PMU events can work on
both counters, the Precise Event-Based Sampling (PEBS) requires that the
event be in PERFCTR0 to work correctly (see section 18.14.4.1 in the
IA32 SDM Vol 3b). This versions has 3 chunks compared to previous where
we had missed on check.

Changelog:
        - make the x86-64 NMI watchdog use PERFSEL1/PERFCTR1 instead of PERFSEL0/PERFCTR0
          on processors supporting the Intel architectural perfmon (e.g. Core 2 Duo).
          This allows PEBS to work when the NMI watchdog is active.

count is large, and default to logical APIC mode when the CPU count is 8 or
smaller.

(this patch only removes the use of genapic_cluster and cleans up the

12 years ago[PATCH] x86-64: optimize & fix APIC mode setup
Ingo Molnar [Wed, 2 May 2007 17:27:04 +0000]
[PATCH] x86-64: optimize & fix APIC mode setup

Fix a couple of inconsistencies/problems I found while reviewing the x86_64
genapic code (when I was chasing mysterious eth0 timeouts that would only
trigger if CPU_HOTPLUG is enabled):

 - AMD systems defaulted to the slower flat-physical mode instead
   of the flat-logical mode. The only restriction on AMD systems
   is that they should not use clustered APIC mode.

 - removed the CPU hotplug hacks, switching the default for small
   systems back from phys-flat to logical-flat. The switching to logical
   flat mode on small systems fixed sporadic ethernet driver timeouts i
   was getting on a dual-core Athlon64 system:

    NETDEV WATCHDOG: eth0: transmit timed out
    eth0: Transmit timeout, status 0c 0005 c07f media 80.
    eth0: Tx queue start entry 32  dirty entry 28.
    eth0:  Tx descriptor 0 is 0008a04a. (queue head)
    eth0:  Tx descriptor 1 is 0008a04a.
    eth0:  Tx descriptor 2 is 0008a04a.
    eth0:  Tx descriptor 3 is 0008a04a.
    eth0: link up, 100Mbps, full-duplex, lpa 0xC5E1

 - The use of '<= 8' was a bug by itself (the valid APIC ids
   for logical flat mode go from 0 to 7, not 0 to 8). The new logic
   is to use logical flat mode on both AMD and Intel systems, and
   to only switch to physical mode when logical mode cannot be used.
   If CPU hotplug is racy wrt. APIC shutdown then CPU hotplug needs
   fixing, not the whole IRQ system be made inconsistent and slowed
   down.

 - minor cleanups: simplified some code constructs

build & booted on a couple of AMD and Intel SMP systems.

Linus Torvalds [Tue, 1 May 2007 00:43:48 +0000]
libata: honour host controllers that want just one host

The Marvell IDE interface on my machine would hit a BUG_ON() in
lib/iomem.c because it was calling ata_pci_init_one() specifying just a
single port on the host, but that would actually end up trying to
initialize two ports, the second one with bogus information.

This fixes "ata_pci_init_one()" so that it actually passes down the
n_ports variable that it got from the low-level driver to the host
allocation routine ("ata_host_alloc_pinfo()"), which results in the ATA
layer actually having the correct port number information.

And in order to make it all work, I also needed to fix a few places that
had incorrectly hard-coded the fact that a host always had exactly two
ports (both ata_pci_init_bmdma() and ata_request_legacy_irqs() would
just always iterate over both ports).

power management: force pm_ops.valid callback to be assigned

This patch changes the docs and behaviour from "all states valid" to "no
states valid" if no .valid callback is assigned.  Users of pm_ops that only
need mem sleep can assign pm_valid_only_mem without any overhead, others
will require more elaborate callbacks.

Now that all users of pm_ops have a .valid callback this is a safe thing to
do and prevents things from getting messy again as they were before.

Johannes Berg [Mon, 30 Apr 2007 22:09:54 +0000]
power management: implement pm_ops.valid for everybody

Almost all users of pm_ops only support mem sleep, don't check in .valid and
don't reject any others in .prepare so users can be confused if they check
/sys/power/state, especially when new states are added (these would then
result in s-t-r although they're supposed to be something different).

This patch implements a generic pm_valid_only_mem function that is then
exported for users and puts it to use in almost all existing pm_ops.

12 years agorework pm_ops pm_disk_mode, kill misuse
Johannes Berg [Mon, 30 Apr 2007 22:09:51 +0000]
rework pm_ops pm_disk_mode, kill misuse

This patch series cleans up some misconceptions about pm_ops.  Some users of
the pm_ops structure attempt to use it to stop the user from entering suspend
to disk, this, however, is not possible since the user can always use
"shutdown" in /sys/power/disk and then the pm_ops are never invoked.  Also,
platforms that don't support suspend to disk simply should not allow
configuring SOFTWARE_SUSPEND (read the help text on it, it only selects
suspend to disk and nothing else, all the other stuff depends on PM).

The pm_ops structure is actually intended to provide a way to enter
platform-defined sleep states (currently supported states are "standby" and
"mem" (suspend to ram)) and additionally (if SOFTWARE_SUSPEND is configured)
allows a platform to support a platform specific way to enter low-power mode
once everything has been saved to disk.  This is currently only used by ACPI
(S4).

This patch:

The pm_ops.pm_disk_mode is used in totally bogus ways since nobody really
seems to understand what it actually does.

This patch clarifies the pm_disk_mode description.

It also removes all the arm and sh users that think they can veto suspend to
disk via pm_ops; not so since the user can always do echo shutdown >
/sys/power/disk, they need to find a better way involving Kconfig or such.

ACPI is the only user left with a non-zero pm_disk_mode.

The patch also sets the default mode to shutdown again, but when a new pm_ops
is registered its pm_disk_mode is selected as default, that way the default
stays for ACPI where it is apparently required.

is awaiting in the send queue. For F-RTO to work correctly, a
new data segment must be sent at certain point or F-RTO cannot
be used at all. RFC4138 allows overriding of Nagle at that
point.

Implementation uses frto_counter states 2 and 3 to distinguish
when Nagle override is needed.

12 years ago[XFRM]: Restrict upper layer information by bundle.
Masahide NAKAMURA [Mon, 30 Apr 2007 07:33:35 +0000]
[XFRM]: Restrict upper layer information by bundle.

On MIPv6 usage, XFRM sub policy is enabled.
When main (IPsec) and sub (MIPv6) policy selectors have the same
address set but different upper layer information (i.e. protocol
number and its ports or type/code), multiple bundle should be created.
However, currently we have issue to use the same bundle created for
the first time with all flows covered by the case.

It is useful for the bundle to have the upper layer information
to be restructured correctly if it does not match with the flow.

1. Bundle was created by two policies
Selector from another policy is added to xfrm_dst.
If the flow does not match the selector, it goes to slow path to
restructure new bundle by single policy.

2. Bundle was created by one policy
Flow cache is added to xfrm_dst as originated one. If the flow does
not match the cache, it goes to slow path to try searching another
policy.

Ilpo Järvinen [Mon, 30 Apr 2007 07:57:33 +0000]
[TCP]: Catch skb with S+L bugs earlier

SACKED_ACKED and LOST are mutually exclusive with SACK, thus
having their sum larger than packets_out is bug with SACK.
Eventually these bugs trigger traps in the tcp_clean_rtx_queue
with SACK but it's much more informative to do this here.

Non-SACK TCP, however, could get more than packets_out duplicate
ACKs which each increment sacked_out, so it makes sense to do
this kind of limitting for non-SACK TCP but not for SACK enabled
one. Perhaps the author had the opposite in mind but did the
logic accidently wrong way around? Anyway, the sacked_out
incrementer code for non-SACK already deals this issue before
calling sync_left_out so this trapping can be done
unconditionally.

[PATCH] INET : IPV4 UDP lookups converted to a 2 pass algo

Some people want to have many UDP sockets, binded to a single port but
many different addresses. We currently hash all those sockets into a
single chain.  Processing of incoming packets is very expensive,
because the whole chain must be examined to find the best match.

I chose in this patch to hash UDP sockets with a hash function that
take into account both their port number and address : This has a
drawback because we need two lookups : one with a given address, one
with a wildcard (null) address.

cfq-iosched: get rid of cfqq hash

cfq hash is no more necessary.  We always can get cfqq from io context.
cfq_get_io_context_noalloc() function is introduced, because we don't
want to allocate cic on merging and checking may_queue.  In order to
identify sync queue we've used hash key = CFQ_KEY_ASYNC. Since hash is
eliminated we need to use other criterion: sync flag for queue is added.
In all places where we dig in rb_tree we're in current context, so no
additional locking is required.

Advantages of this patch: no additional memory for hash, no seeking in
hash, code is cleaner. But it is necessary now to seek cic in per-ioc
rbtree, but it is faster:
- most processes work only with few devices
- most systems have only few block devices
- it is a rb-tree

the pending cfq_queue concept list management. Currently CFQ uses a
doubly linked list per priority level for sorting and service uses.
Kill those lists and maintain an rbtree of cfq_queue's, sorted by when
to service them.

This unfortunately means that the ionice levels aren't as strong
anymore, will work on improving those later. We only scale the slice
time now, not the number of times we service. This means that latency
is better (for all priority levels), but that the distinction between
the highest and lower levels aren't as big.

The diffstat speaks for itself.

Mark A. Greer [Fri, 27 Apr 2007 20:48:24 +0000]
[POWERPC] Add dt_xlate_addr() to bootwrapper

dt_xlate_reg() looks up the 'reg' property in the specified node
to get the address and size to translate.  Add dt_xlate_addr()
which is passed in the address and size to translate.

[POWERPC] Don't define a custom bd_t for Xilixn Virtex based boards.

Why create a platform specific board_info structure that is hacked
together, ugly, and dangerous, when we've got a perfectly fine common
board_info structure that is hacked-together, ugly and dangerous.

[POWERPC] New registration for common Xilinx Virtex ppc405 platform devices

Currently virtex support in mainline make use of the infrastructure in
arch/ppc/syslib/ppc_sys.c for registering common devices on virtex ppc405
platforms.  The ppc_sys.c code is not well suited to the dynamic nature of
FPGA designs and makes adding new board ports more complex.  This patch
adds a new listing of common devices which does not depend on the ppc_sys.c
infrastructure.

[POWERPC] Rework Kconfig dependancies for Xilinx Virtex ppc405 platform

Reverse dependency order for Xilinx Virtex parts.  For these parts, It
makes more sense for boards/chips to specify which features they
provide instead of the features listing the parts they are implemented
in.  I think it also makes adding new board ports simpler.
