- Couple of incorrect error handling fixed.
- One incorrect use of a allocation policy
- Some other things

Still needs more review.

We have a fairly complex set of loops around walking our list of

It doesn't work very well, can use large amounts of CPU and doesn't

This switches us to kick the bdi flusher threads instead.  All dirty

Add new functions for triggering inode writeback

When btrfs is running low on metadata space, it needs to force delayed
allocation pages to disk.  It currently does this with a suboptimal walk
of a private list of inodes with delayed allocation, and it would be
much better if we used the generic flusher threads.

writeback_inodes_sb_if_idle would be ideal, but it waits for the flusher
thread to start IO on all the dirty pages in the FS before it returns.
This adds variants of writeback_inodes_sb* that allow the caller to
control how many pages get sent down.

space they didn't and they'd return ENOSPC.  So instead if we have some free
space but not enough for our reservation, take the reservation and then start
doing the flushing.  The only time we don't take reservations is when we've
already overcommitted our space, that way we don't have people who come late to

9 years agovirtio: console: Don't block entire guest if host doesn't read data
Amit Shah [Wed, 20 Oct 2010 03:15:43 +0000]
virtio: console: Don't block entire guest if host doesn't read data

If the host is slow in reading data or doesn't read data at all,
blocking write calls not only blocked the program that called write()
but the entire guest itself.

To overcome this, let's not block till the host signals it has given
back the virtio ring element we passed it.  Instead, send the buffer to
the host and return to userspace.  This operation then becomes similar
to how non-blocking writes work, so let's use the existing code for this
path as well.

This code change also ensures blocking write calls do get blocked if
there's not enough room in the virtio ring as well as they don't return
-EAGAIN to userspace.

kvm reloads the host's fs and gs blindly, however the underlying segment

mxc_nand: do not depend on disabling the irq in the interrupt handler

This patch reverts the driver to enabling/disabling the NFC interrupt
mask rather than enabling/disabling the system interrupt.  This cleans
up the driver so that it doesn't rely on interrupts being disabled
within the interrupt handler.

For i.MX21 we keep the current behaviour, that is calling
enable_irq/disable_irq_nosync to enable/disable interrupts.  This patch
is based on earlier work by John Ogness.

i2c-imx: do not allow interruptions when waiting for I2C to complete

The i2c_imx_trx_complete() function is using
wait_event_interruptible_timeout() to wait for the I2C controller to
signal that it has completed an I2C bus operation. If the process that
causes the I2C operation receives a signal, the wait will be
interrupted, returning an error. It is better to let the I2C operation
finished before handling the signal (i.e. returning into userspace).

It is safe to use wait_event_timeout() instead, because the timeout
will allow the process to exit if the I2C bus hangs. It's also better
to allow the I2C operation to finish, because unacknowledged I2C
operations can cause the I2C bus to hang.

"firewire: ohci: fix up configuration of TI chips".
It caused massive slow-down and data corruption with a TSB82AA2 based

The fact that some card EEPROMs do not program these enhancements may be
related to TSB81BA3 phy chip errata, if not to bugs of TSB82AA2 itself.
We could re-add these configuration steps, but only conditional on a
whitelist of cards on which these enhancements bring a proven positive
effect.

ALSA: rawmidi: fix oops (use after free) when unloading a driver module

When a driver module is unloaded and the last still open file is a raw
MIDI device, the card and its devices will be actually freed in the
snd_card_file_remove() call when that file is closed.  Afterwards, rmidi

9 years agov4l1: fix 32-bit compat microcode loading translation
Linus Torvalds [Fri, 15 Oct 2010 18:12:38 +0000]
v4l1: fix 32-bit compat microcode loading translation

The compat code for the VIDIOCSMICROCODE ioctl is totally buggered.
It's only used by the VIDEO_STRADIS driver, and that one is scheduled to
staging and eventually removed unless somebody steps up to maintain it
(at which point it should use request_firmware() rather than some magic
ioctl).  So we'll get rid of it eventually.

But in the meantime, the compatibility ioctl code is broken, and this
tries to get it to at least limp along (even if Mauro suggested just
deleting it entirely, which may be the right thing to do - I don't think
the compatibility translation code has ever worked unless you were very
lucky).

Linus Torvalds [Fri, 15 Oct 2010 18:09:28 +0000]
De-pessimize rds_page_copy_user

Don't try to "optimize" rds_page_copy_user() by using kmap_atomic() and
the unsafe atomic user mode accessor functions.  It's actually slower
than the straightforward code on any reasonable modern CPU.

Back when the code was written (although probably not by the time it was
actually merged, though), 32-bit x86 may have been the dominant
architecture.  And there kmap_atomic() can be a lot faster than kmap()
(unless you have very good locality, in which case the virtual address
caching by kmap() can overcome all the downsides).

But these days, x86-64 may not be more populous, but it's getting there
(and if you care about performance, it's definitely already there -
you'd have upgraded your CPU's already in the last few years).  And on
x86-64, the non-kmap_atomic() version is faster, simply because the code
is simpler and doesn't have the "re-try page fault" case.

People with old hardware are not likely to care about RDS anyway, and
the optimization for the 32-bit case is simply buggy, since it doesn't
verify the user addresses properly.

  PM: Syncing filesystems ... done.

  PM: Device pxa2xx-mci.0 failed to suspend: error -38
  PM: Some devices failed to suspend

4c2ef25fe0b moved the card removal/insertion mechanism out of MMC's
suspend/resume path and into pm notifiers (mmc_pm_notify), and that
broke SDIO's expectation that mmc_suspend_host() will remove the card,
and squash the error, in case -ENOSYS is returned from the bus suspend
handler (mmc_sdio_suspend() in this case).

mmc_sdio_suspend() is using this whenever at least one of the card's SDIO
function drivers does not have suspend/resume handlers - in that case
it is agreed to force removal of the entire card.

This patch fixes this regression by trivially bringing back that part of
mmc_suspend_host(), which was removed by 4c2ef25fe0b.

ubd: fix incorrect sector handling during request restart

Commit f81f2f7c (ubd: drop unnecessary rq->sector manipulation)
dropped request->sector manipulation in preparation for global request
handling cleanup; unfortunately, it incorrectly assumed that the
updated sector wasn't being used.

ubd tries to issue as many requests as possible to io_thread.  When
issuing fails due to memory pressure or other reasons, the device is
put on the restart list and issuing stops.  On IO completion, devices
on the restart list are scanned and IO issuing is restarted.

ubd issues IOs sg-by-sg and issuing can be stopped in the middle of a
request, so each device on the restart queue needs to remember where
to restart in its current request.  ubd needs to keep track of the
issue position itself because,

* blk_rq_pos(req) is now updated by the block layer to keep track of
  _completion_ position.

* Multiple io_req's for the current request may be in flight, so it's
  difficult to tell where blk_rq_pos(req) currently is.

Add ubd->rq_pos to keep track of the issue position and use it to
correctly restart io_req issue.

dump_seek() in particular was too big to be an inline function anyway,

ioat2: fix performance regression

Commit 0793448 "DMAENGINE: generic channel status v2" changed the interface for
how dma channel progress is retrieved.  It inadvertently exported an internal
helper function ioat_tx_status() instead of ioat_dma_tx_status().  The latter
polls the hardware to get the latest completion state, while the helper just
evaluates the current state without touching hardware.  The effect is that we
end up waiting for completion timeouts or descriptor allocation errors before
the completion state is updated.

iperf (before fix):
[SUM]  0.0-41.3 sec   364 MBytes  73.9 Mbits/sec

iperf (after fix):
[SUM]  0.0- 4.5 sec   499 MBytes   940 Mbits/sec

This is a regression starting with 2.6.35.

9 years agonet: allow FEC driver to use fixed PHY support
Greg Ungerer [Mon, 11 Oct 2010 21:03:05 +0000]
net: allow FEC driver to use fixed PHY support

At least one board using the FEC driver does not have a conventional
PHY attached to it, it is directly connected to a somewhat simple
ethernet switch (the board is the SnapGear/LITE, and the attached
4-port ethernet switch is a RealTek RTL8305). This switch does not
present the usual register interface of a PHY, it presents nothing.
So a PHY scan will find nothing - it finds ID's of 0 for each PHY
on the attached MII bus.

After the FEC driver was changed to use phylib for supporting PHYs
it no longer works on this particular board/switch setup.

Add code support to use a fixed phy if no PHY is found on the MII bus.
This is based on the way the cpmac.c driver solved this same problem.

ARM: 6440/1: ep93xx: DMA: fix channel_disable

When channel_disable() is called, it disables per channel interrupts and
waits until channels state becomes STATE_STALL, and then disables the
channel. Now, if the DMA transfer is disabled while the channel is in
STATE_NEXT we will not wait anything and disable the channel immediately.
This seems to cause weird data corruption for example in audio transfers.

Fix is to wait while we are in STATE_NEXT or STATE_ON and only then
disable the channel.
