[MTD] m25p80 handles more chips, uses JEDEC ids and small eraseblocks

Update chip ID tables in m25p80 to handle more SPI flash chips, matching
datasheets.  All of these can use the same core operations and are newer
chips that support the JEDEC "read id" instruction:

 - Atmel AT25 and AT26 (seven chips)
 - Spansion S25SL (five chips)
 - SST 25VF (four chips)
 - ST M25, M45 (five more chips)
 - Winbond W25X series (seven chips)

That JEDEC instruction is now used, either to support a sanity check on the
platform data holding board configuration data, or to determine chip type
when it's not included in platform data.  In fact, boards that don't need a
standard partition table may not need that platform data any more.

For chips that support 4KiB erase units, use that smaller block size instead
of the larger size (usually 64KiB); it's less wasteful.  (Tested on W25X80.)

[MTD] oops and panic message logging to MTD device

Kernel oops and panic messages are invaluable when debugging crashes.
These messages often don't make it to flash based logging methods (say a
syslog on jffs2) due to the overheads involved in writing to flash.

This patch allows you to turn an MTD partition into a circular log
buffer where kernel oops and panic messages are written to. The messages
are obtained by registering a console driver and checking
oops_in_progress. Erases are performed in advance to maximise the
chances of a saving messages.

To activate it, add console=ttyMTDx to the kernel commandline (where x
is the mtd device number to use).

[JFFS2] Reduce time for which erase_free_sem is held during erase.

With current desing erase_free_sem is locked every time the flash
block is being erased. For NOR flashes - ~1 second is needed to erase
single flash block. In the worst case scenario erase_free_sem may be
locked for a couple of seconds when the number of blocks is being
erased (e.g. after large file was removed). When erase_free_sem is
locked all read/write operations for given JFFS2 partition are locked
too - in effect from time to time access to the JFFS2 partition is
locked for a number of seconds. This fix makes critical section in
flash erasing procedure shorter - now erase_free_sem is locked around
erase_completion_lock spinlock only.

12 years agox86_64 irq: use mask/unmask and proper locking in fixup_irqs()
Siddha, Suresh B [Mon, 25 Jun 2007 22:52:35 +0000]
x86_64 irq: use mask/unmask and proper locking in fixup_irqs()

Force irq migration path during cpu offline, is not using proper locks and
irq_chip mask/unmask routines.  This will result in some races(especially
the device generating the interrupt can see some inconsistent state,
resulting in issues like stuck irq,..).

Appended patch fixes the issue by taking proper lock and encapsulating
irq_chip set_affinity() with a mask() before and an unmask() after.

This fixes a MSI irq stuck issue reported by Darrick Wong.

There are several more general bugs in this area(irq migration in the
process context). For example,

 1. Possibility of missing edge triggered irq.
 2. Reliable method of migrating level triggered irq in the process context.

We plan to look and close these in the near future.

Eric says:
In addition even with the fix from Suresh there is still at least one
nasty hardware race in fixup_irqs().   However we exercise that code
path rarely enough that we are unlikely to hit it in the real world,
and that race seems to have existed since the code was merged.  And a
fix for that is not coming soon as it is an open investigation area
if we can fix irq migration to work outside of irq context or if
we have to rework the requirements imposed by the generic cpu hotplug
and layer on fixup_irqs().  So this may come up again.

[POWERPC] Fix subtle FP state corruption bug in signal return on SMP

This fixes a bug which can cause corruption of the floating-point state
on return from a signal handler.  If we have a signal handler that has
used the floating-point registers, and it happens to context-switch to
another task while copying the interrupted floating-point state from the
user stack into the thread struct (e.g. because of a page fault, or
because it gets preempted), the context switch code will think that the
FP registers contain valid FP state that needs to be copied into the
thread_struct, and will thus overwrite the values that the signal return
code has put into the thread_struct.

This can occur because we clear the MSR bits that indicate the presence
of valid FP state after copying the state into the thread_struct.  To fix
this we just move the clearing of the MSR bits to before the copy.  A
similar potential problem also occurs with the Altivec state, and this
fixes that in the same way.

fix nmi_watchdog=2 bootup hang

wrmsrl() is broken, dropping the upper 32bits of the value to be
written. This broke the NMI watchdog on AMD hardware. (and it
probably broke other code too.)

Tian Kevin [Sun, 24 Jun 2007 00:16:52 +0000]
ACPI: preserve the ebx value in acpi_copy_wakeup_routine

Register %ebx serves as the "global offset table base register" for
position-independent code.  For absolute code, %ebx serves as a local
register and has no specified role in the function calling sequence.  In
either case, a function must preserve the register value for the caller.

acpi_copy_wakeup_routine overrides %ebx without saving it, this may corrupt
the called data.

Kevin found that most time the value of Sx is saved in %esi, however
sometimes compiler also uses %ebx.  When this happens, suspends fails since
sleep value in ebx is changed by acpi_copy_wakeup_routine.

The same funtion in X86_64 doesn't have this problem.

12 years agox86_64: fix misplaced `continue' in mce.c
Joshua Wise [Sun, 24 Jun 2007 00:16:45 +0000]
x86_64: fix misplaced `continue' in mce.c

Background:
  When a userspace application wants to know about machine check events, it
  opens /dev/mcelog and does a read(). Usually, we found that this interface
  works well, but in some cases, when the system was taking large numbers of
  machine check exceptions, the read() would hang. The system would output a
  soft-lockup warning, and the daemon reading from /dev/mcelog would suck up
  as much of a single CPU as it could spinning in system space.

Description:
  This patch fixes this bug. In particular, there was a "continue" inside a
  timeout loop that presumably was intended to break out of the outer loop,
  but instead caused the inner loop to continue. This patch also makes the
  condition for the break-out a little more evident by changing a
  !time_before to a time_after_eq.

Result:
  The read() no longer hangs in this test case.

Testing:
  On my system, I could replicate the bug with the following command:
    # for i in `seq 15000`; do ./inject_sbe.sh; done
  where inject_sbe.sh contains commands to inject a single-bit error into the
  next memory write transaction.

Patch:
  This patch is against git f1518a088bde6aea49e7c472ed6ab96178fcba3e.

SM501: Check SM501 ID register on initialisation

When binding the driver, check the ID register for a valid identity, in case
the SM501 is not functioning correctly.

12 years agoSM501: Clock updates and checks
Ben Dooks [Sun, 24 Jun 2007 00:16:30 +0000]
SM501: Clock updates and checks

Ensure that the M1XCLK and MCLK are sourced from the same PLL (and refuse to
bind the driver if they are not).

Update the PCI to safe initialisation values, as 72MHz is the maximum clock
for 33MHz PCI bus mastering.
