real pain for us.  We've switched to uClinux-2.4.27-uc1 and found that
page_alloc2 fragments the memory heavily.

Digging into it we found a bug in the find_next_zero_bit function in the
m68knommu/bitops.h file.  if the size isn't a multiple of 32 than the
upper bits of the last word to be searched should be masked.  But the
functions masks the lower bits of the last word because it uses a right
shift instead of a left shift operator.

Greg Ungerer [Tue, 10 Jan 2006 06:42:59 +0000]
[PATCH] m68knommu: fix a5 reg corruption in signal handlers

This is a patch adapted from a posting by Andrea Tarani which was
pointed out to me by Bernardo Innocenti.  Thanks to both of them for
their help and patience.

The original posting is here:
  http://mailman.uclinux.org/pipermail/uclinux-dev/2005-July/033543.html

The problem first manifest itself as busybox ping terminating with an
"Illegal instruction".  I reduced this to a test case and found that
variable size arrays allocated on the stack could lead to stacks not
aligned on 32 bit boundaries.  For the Coldfire this proved fatal.

Having been pointed out this patch by Bernardo, I applied it and it
fixed the first test case.  I then went back to busybox's ping.  This
still failed with "Illegal instruction", but in a different way.  Before
it depended on the size allocated for the ping buffer, now it happened
every time.  I also found it depended on optimisation level (gcc-3.4.0)
-Os was okay but not -O2.

After a lot of looking, it turned out that register a5 was being
corrupted by the signal handler (after applying the patch).  I re-worked
the patch a bit to save/restore a5 and now all seems well.

[PATCH] Work around ppc64 compiler bug

In the process of optimising our per cpu data code, I found a ppc64
compiler bug that has been around forever. Basically the current
RELOC_HIDE can end up trashing r30. Details of the bug can be found at

  http://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=25572

This bug is present in all compilers before 4.1. It is masked by the
fact that our current per cpu data code is inefficient and causes
other loads that end up marking r30 as used.

A workaround identified by Alan Modra is to use the =r asm constraint
instead of =g.

14 years ago[PATCH] TTY layer buffering revamp
Alan Cox [Tue, 10 Jan 2006 04:54:13 +0000]
[PATCH] TTY layer buffering revamp

The API and code have been through various bits of initial review by
serial driver people but they definitely need to live somewhere for a
while so the unconverted drivers can get knocked into shape, existing
drivers that have been updated can be better tuned and bugs whacked out.

This replaces the tty flip buffers with kmalloc objects in rings. In the
normal situation for an IRQ driven serial port at typical speeds the
behaviour is pretty much the same, two buffers end up allocated and the
kernel cycles between them as before.

When there are delays or at high speed we now behave far better as the
buffer pool can grow a bit rather than lose characters. This also means
that we can operate at higher speeds reliably.

For drivers that receive characters in blocks (DMA based, USB and
especially virtualisation) the layer allows a lot of driver specific
code that works around the tty layer with private secondary queues to be
removed. The IBM folks need this sort of layer, the smart serial port
people do, the virtualisers do (because a virtualised tty typically
operates at infinite speed rather than emulating 9600 baud).

Finally many drivers had invalid and unsafe attempts to avoid buffer
overflows by directly invoking tty methods extracted out of the innards
of work queue structs. These are no longer needed and all go away. That
fixes various random hangs with serial ports on overflow.

The other change in here is to optimise the receive_room path that is
used by some callers. It turns out that only one ldisc uses receive room
except asa constant and it updates it far far less than the value is
read. We thus make it a variable not a function call.

I expect the code to contain bugs due to the size alone but I'll be
watching and squashing them and feeding out new patches as it goes.

Because the buffers now dynamically expand you should only run out of
buffering when the kernel runs out of memory for real.  That means a lot of
the horrible hacks high performance drivers used to do just aren't needed any
more.

Description:

tty_insert_flip_char is an old API and continues to work as before, as does
tty_flip_buffer_push() [this is why many drivers dont need modification].  It
does now also return the number of chars inserted

There are also

tty_buffer_request_room(tty, len)

which asks for a buffer block of the length requested and returns the space
found.  This improves efficiency with hardware that knows how much to
transfer.

and tty_insert_flip_string_flags(tty, str, flags, len)

to insert a string of characters and flags

For a smart interface the usual code is

    len = tty_request_buffer_room(tty, amount_hardware_says);
    tty_insert_flip_string(tty, buffer_from_card, len);

More description!

At the moment tty buffers are attached directly to the tty.  This is causing a
lot of the problems related to tty layer locking, also problems at high speed
and also with bursty data (such as occurs in virtualised environments)

I'm working on ripping out the flip buffers and replacing them with a pool of
dynamically allocated buffers.  This allows both for old style "byte I/O"
devices and also helps virtualisation and smart devices where large blocks of
data suddenely materialise and need storing.

So far so good.  Lots of drivers reference tty->flip.*.  Several of them also
call directly and unsafely into function pointers it provides.  This will all
break.  Most drivers can use tty_insert_flip_char which can be kept as an API
but others need more.

At the moment I've added the following interfaces, if people think more will
be needed now is a good time to say

 int tty_buffer_request_room(tty, size)

Try and ensure at least size bytes are available, returns actual room (may be
zero).  At the moment it just uses the flipbuf space but that will change.
Repeated calls without characters being added are not cumulative.  (ie if you
call it with 1, 1, 1, and then 4 you'll have four characters of space.  The
other functions will also try and grow buffers in future but this will be a
more efficient way when you know block sizes.

 int tty_insert_flip_char(tty, ch, flag)

As before insert a character if there is room.  Now returns 1 for success, 0
for failure.

 int tty_insert_flip_string(tty, str, len)

Insert a block of non error characters.  Returns the number inserted.

 int tty_prepare_flip_string(tty, strptr, len)

Adjust the buffer to allow len characters to be added.  Returns a buffer
pointer in strptr and the length available.  This allows for hardware that
needs to use functions like insl or mencpy_fromio.

14 years ago[PATCH] Fix console blanking
Ville Syrjala [Tue, 10 Jan 2006 04:53:49 +0000]
[PATCH] Fix console blanking

Current console blanking code is broken.  It will first do a normal blank,
then start the VESA blank timer if vesa_off_interval != 0, and then proceed
to do the VESA blanking directly.  After the timer expires it will do the
VESA blanking a second time.  Also the vesa_powerdown() function doesn't
allow all VESA modes to be used.

With this patch the behaviour is:
1. Blank: vesa_off_interval != 0 -> Do normal blank
          vesa_off_interval == 0 -> Do VESA blank
2. Start the VESA blank timer if vesa_off_interval != 0 and
   vesa_power_mode != 0.

It also gets rid of the limiting vesa_powerdown() function.

Thomas Koeller [Tue, 10 Jan 2006 04:53:48 +0000]
[PATCH] non-linear frame buffer read/write access

While the code in fbmem.c allows for hooking read/write access to
non-linear frame buffers by means of fb_read and fb_write in struct fb_ops,
I could not find a way tho access the actual frame buffer memory from
within these routines.  I therefore had to patch fbmem.c, to be able to
retrieve a pointer to struct fb_info from the 'file' argument to these
functions.

The second hunk of the patch is not strictly required, I only did that for
symmetry reasons (and the code is somewhat shorter).
