[SCSI] make scsi_queue_insert() use blk_requeue_request()

scsi_queue_insert() used to use blk_insert_request() for requeueing

blk_insert_request() setting REQ_SPECIAL and REQ_SOFTBARRIER when
requeueing.  This patch makes scsi_queue_insert() use
blk_requeue_request().  As REQ_SPECIAL means special requests and
REQ_SOFTBARRIER is automatically handled by blk layer now, no flag
needs to be set.

Note that scsi_queue_insert() now calls scsi_run_queue() itself, and
the prototype of the function is added right above
scsi_queue_insert().  This is temporary, as later requeue path
consolidation patchset removes scsi_queue_insert().  By adding
temporary prototype, we can do away with unnecessarily moving
functions.

The patches to free_pgtables by vma left problems on any architectures which

fixed the 32-bit vDSO on x86_64 to use a vma.  Now fix arm (and arm26), whose
first PAGE_SIZE is reserved (perhaps) for machine vectors.

Our calls to free_pgtables must not touch that area, and exit_mmap's
BUG_ON(nr_ptes) must allow that arm's get_pgd_slow may (or may not) have
allocated an extra page table, which its free_pgd_slow would free later.

FIRST_USER_PGD_NR has misled me and others: until all the arches define
FIRST_USER_ADDRESS instead, a hack in mmap.c to derive one from t'other.  This

[PATCH] freepgt: hugetlb_free_pgd_range

ia64 and ppc64 had hugetlb_free_pgtables functions which were no longer being
called, and it wasn't obvious what to do about them.

The ppc64 case turns out to be easy: the associated tables are noted elsewhere
and freed later, safe to either skip its hugetlb areas or go through the
motions of freeing nothing.  Since ia64 does need a special case, restore to
ppc64 the special case of skipping them.

The ia64 hugetlb case has been broken since pgd_addr_end went in, though it
probably appeared to work okay if you just had one such area; in fact it's
been broken much longer if you consider a long munmap spanning from another
region into the hugetlb region.

In the ia64 hugetlb region, more virtual address bits are available than in
the other regions, yet the page tables are structured the same way: the page
at the bottom is larger.  Here we need to scale down each addr before passing
it to the standard free_pgd_range.  Was about to write a hugely_scaled_down
macro, but found htlbpage_to_page already exists for just this purpose.  Fixed
off-by-one in ia64 is_hugepage_only_range.

Uninline free_pgd_range to make it available to ia64.  Make sure the
vma-gathering loop in free_pgtables cannot join a hugepage_only_range to any
other (safe to join huges?  probably but don't bother).

[PATCH] freepgt: remove MM_VM_SIZE(mm)

There's only one usage of MM_VM_SIZE(mm) left, and it's a troublesome macro
because mm doesn't contain the (32-bit emulation?) info needed.  But it too is
only needed because we ignore the end from the vma list.

We could make flush_pgtables return that end, or unmap_vmas.  Choose the
latter, since it's a natural fit with unmap_mapping_range_vma needing to know
its restart addr.  This does make more than minimal change, but if unmap_vmas
had returned the end before, this is how we'd have done it, rather than
storing the break_addr in zap_details.

unmap_vmas used to return count of vmas scanned, but that's just debug which
hasn't been useful in a while; and if we want the map_count 0 on exit check
back, it can easily come from the final remove_vm_struct loop.

Hugh Dickins [Tue, 19 Apr 2005 20:29:15 +0000]
[PATCH] freepgt: free_pgtables use vma list

Recent woes with some arches needing their own pgd_addr_end macro; and 4-level
clear_page_range regression since 2.6.10's clear_page_tables; and its
long-standing well-known inefficiency in searching throughout the higher-level
page tables for those few entries to clear and free: all can be blamed on
ignoring the list of vmas when we free page tables.

Replace exit_mmap's clear_page_range of the total user address space by
free_pgtables operating on the mm's vma list; unmap_region use it in the same
way, giving floor and ceiling beyond which it may not free tables.  This
brings lmbench fork/exec/sh numbers back to 2.6.10 (unless preempt is enabled,
in which case latency fixes spoil unmap_vmas throughput).

Beware: the do_mmap_pgoff driver failure case must now use unmap_region
instead of zap_page_range, since a page table might have been allocated, and
can only be freed while it is touched by some vma.

Move free_pgtables from mmap.c to memory.c, where its lower levels are adapted
from the clear_page_range levels.  (Most of free_pgtables' old code was
actually for a non-existent case, prev not properly set up, dating from before
hch gave us split_vma.) Pass mmu_gather** in the public interfaces, since we
might want to add latency lockdrops later; but no attempt to do so yet, going
by vma should itself reduce latency.

But what if is_hugepage_only_range?  Those ia64 and ppc64 cases need careful
examination: put that off until a later patch of the series.

What of x86_64's 32bit vdso page __map_syscall32 maps outside any vma?

And the range to sparc64's flush_tlb_pgtables?  It's less clear to me now that
we need to do more than is done here - every PMD_SIZE ever occupied will be
flushed, do we really have to flush every PGDIR_SIZE ever partially occupied?
A shame to complicate it unnecessarily.

Special thanks to David Miller for time spent repairing my ceilings.

[PATCH] debugfs: Reduce <linux/debugfs.h> dependencies

The current <linux/debugfs.h> include file is a little fragile in that
it is not self-contained and hence may cause compile warnings or
errors depending on the files included before it, the kernel config
and the architecture.  This patch makes things a little more robust by:

 - including <linux/types.h> to get definitions of u32, mode_t, and so on.
 - forward declaring struct file_operations.
 - including <linux/err.h> when CONFIG_DEBUG_FS is not set

The last change is particularly useful, as a kernel developer is
likely to build with debugfs always enabled and never see the build
breakage cased if debugfs is disabled.

[PATCH] export platform_add_devices

platform_add_devices can be used from within modules, so it should be
exported.  This can for example happen if you have hotpluggable firmware in
an FPGA on a system on chip processor; in our case the FPGA is probed for
devices and the FPGA base code registers the devices it has found with the
kernel.

(akpm: I think this is reasonable from a licensing POV: it's unlikely that
anyone would be interested in merging such specialised modules into mainline,
and it's a GPL export).

Here we add a TIMEOUT value to the hotplug environment of the firmware
requesting event. I will adapt udevd not to wait for anything else, if

[PATCH] I2C: Fix incorrect sysfs file permissions in it87 and via686a drivers

The it87 and via686a hardware monitoring drivers each create a sysfs
file named "alarms" in R/W mode, while they should really create it in
read-only mode. Since we don't provide a store function for these files,
write attempts to these files will do something undefined (I guess) and
bad (I am sure). My own try resulted in a locked terminal (where I
attempted the write) and a 100% CPU load until next reboot.

As a side note, wouldn't it make sense to check, when creating sysfs
files, that readable files have a non-NULL show method, and writable
files have a non-NULL store method? I know drivers are not supposed to
do stupid things, but there is already a BUG_ON for several conditions
in sysfs_create_file, so maybe we could add two more?

Here comes a small cleanup patch for the via686a driver. I noticed the
following two non-fatal problems:

1* The device parent is explicitely set, but it's not needed because the
i2c core will do as the client is registered.

2* snprintf is used where strlcpy would suffice.

Fixing them brings the via686a driver in line with what other similar
drivers do.
