[POWERPC] Split out vpa unregister logic from pseries_kexec_cpu_down_xics()

As part of the new irq code pseries_kexec_cpu_down() was split into a
xics and mpic version. The vpa unregister logic is now only done in the
xics routine, and although that's ok in practice (we don't have SPLPAR
machines with mpic), I'd rather have the two concepts stay separate.

So move the vpa unregister into pseries_kexec_cpu_down(), which gets called
by both the xics and mpic routines. This also gives us an obvious place to
put any new kexec-down logic needed in future.

[PATCH] ppc32: fix last_jiffy time comparison

This fixes a hang on ppc32.

The problem was that I was comparing a 32-bit quantity with a 64-bit
quantity, and consequently time wasn't advancing.  This makes us use a
64-bit quantity on all platforms, which ends up simplifying the code
since we can now get rid of the tb_last_stamp variable (which actually
fixes another bug that Ben H and I noticed while going carefully through
the code).

Further, the stack pointer retrieval for the fallback should be as

[PATCH] x86: Revert e820 MCFG heuristics

The check for the MCFG table being reserved in the e820 map was originally
added to detect a broken BIOS in a preproduction Intel SDV. However it also
breaks the Apple x86 Macs, which can't supply this properly, but need
a working MCFG. With this patch they wouldn't use the MCFG and not work.

After some discussion I think it's best to remove the heuristic again.
It also failed on some other boxes (although it didn't cause much
problems there because old style port access for PCI config space
still works as fallback), but the preproduction SDVs can just use
pci=nommcfg. Supporting production machines properly is more
important.

local_irq_save/restore, and they are called with interrupts disabled.

[POWERPC] Fix problem with time not advancing on 32-bit platforms

This fixes a problem introduced in 5db9fa9593e2ff69f2b95f9d59229dc4faaa564d.
The last_jiffy per-cpu variable is only 32 bits on 32-bit machines, but it
was being compared with a 64-bit quantity (tb_next_jiffy), which resulted in
time not advancing.

This fixes it by changing last_jiffy to be 64 bits on all platforms.  With
this, we no longer need tb_last_stamp as a 32-bit version of tb_last_jiffy,
so this gets rid of tb_last_stamp and we just use tb_last_jiffy instead.
This also fixes a bug when the boot cpu is not online, because using
tb_last_stamp could have caused the wrong timebase origin value to be used
when calculating the time of day.

Device-tree bugs on js20 with some versions of SLOF were causing the

patch adds a bit more sanity checking to the parser to detect some of

Zang Roy-r61911 [Fri, 25 Aug 2006 04:16:30 +0000]
[POWERPC] Support for "weird" MPICs and fixup mpc7448_hpc2

This adds a new hardware information table for mpic. This enables
the mpic code to deal with mpic controllers with different register
layouts and hardware behaviours.

This introduces CONFIG_MPIC_WEIRD.  For boards with non standard mpic
controllers, select CONFIG_MPIC_WEIRD and add its hardware information
in the mpic_infos[] array.

TSI108/109 PIC takes the first index of weird hardware information
table.  :)  The table can be extended. The Tsi108/109 PIC looks like
standard OpenPIC but, in fact, is different in register mapping and
behavior.

The patch does not affect the behavior of standard mpic.  If
CONFIG_MPIC_WEIRD is not defined, the code is essentially identical to
the current code.

[benh@kernel.crashing.org:
This patch is a slightly cleaned up version of Zang Roy's support for
the TSI108 MPIC variant. It also fixes up MPC7448_hpc2 to use the new
version of the type macros and changes the way MPIC is selected in
Kconfig to better match what is done for other system devices.

[SPARC64]: Fix X server hangs due to large pages.

This problem was introduced by changeset
14778d9072e53d2171f66ffd9657daff41acfaed

Unlike the hugetlb code paths, the normal fault code is not setup to
propagate PTE changes for large page sizes correctly like the ones we
make for I/O mappings in io_remap_pfn_range().

It is absolutely necessary to update all sub-ptes of a largepage
mapping on a fault.  Adding special handling for this would add
considerably complexity to tlb_batch_add().  So let's just side-step
the issue and forcefully dirty any writable PTEs created by
io_remap_pfn_range().

The only other real option would be to disable to large PTE code of
io_remap_pfn_range() and we really don't want to do that.

Much thanks to Mikael Pettersson for tracking down this problem and
testing debug patches.

[IPV6]: ipv6_add_addr should install dstentry earlier

ipv6_add_addr allocates a struct inet6_ifaddr and a dstentry, but it
doesn't install the dstentry in ifa->rt until after it releases the
addrconf_hash_lock. This means other CPUs will be able to see the new
address while it hasn't been initialized completely yet.

One possible fix would be to grab the ifp->lock spinlock when

assignment.

[IPV6]: SNMPv2 "ipv6IfStatsInAddrErrors" counter error

   When I tested Linux kernel 2.6.17.7 about statistics
"ipv6IfStatsInAddrErrors", found that this counter couldn't increase
correctly. The criteria is RFC2465:
 ipv6IfStatsInAddrErrors OBJECT-TYPE
      SYNTAX      Counter32
      MAX-ACCESS  read-only
      STATUS      current
      DESCRIPTION
         "The number of input datagrams discarded because
         the IPv6 address in their IPv6 header's destination
         field was not a valid address to be received at
         this entity.  This count includes invalid
         addresses (e.g., ::0) and unsupported addresses
         (e.g., addresses with unallocated prefixes).  For
         entities which are not IPv6 routers and therefore

         datagrams discarded because the destination address
         was not a local address."
      ::= { ipv6IfStatsEntry 5 }

When I send packet to host with destination that is ether invalid
address(::0) or unsupported addresses(1::1), the Linux kernel just
discard the packet, and the counter doesn't increase(in the function

Paul Jackson [Sun, 27 Aug 2006 08:23:51 +0000]
[PATCH] cpuset: top_cpuset tracks hotplug changes to cpu_online_map

Change the list of cpus allowed to tasks in the top (root) cpuset to
dynamically track what cpus are online, using a CPU hotplug notifier.  Make
this top cpus file read-only.

On systems that have cpusets configured in their kernel, but that aren't
actively using cpusets (for some distros, this covers the majority of
systems) all tasks end up in the top cpuset.

If that system does support CPU hotplug, then these tasks cannot make use
of CPUs that are added after system boot, because the CPUs are not allowed
in the top cpuset.  This is a surprising regression over earlier kernels
that didn't have cpusets enabled.

In order to keep the behaviour of cpusets consistent between systems
actively making use of them and systems not using them, this patch changes
the behaviour of the 'cpus' file in the top (root) cpuset, making it read
only, and making it automatically track the value of cpu_online_map.  Thus
tasks in the top cpuset will have automatic use of hot plugged CPUs allowed
by their cpuset.

Thanks to Anton Blanchard and Nathan Lynch for reporting this problem,
driving the fix, and earlier versions of this patch.

[PATCH] md: avoid backward event updates in md superblock when degraded.

If we
  - shut down a clean array,
  - restart with one (or more) drive(s) missing
  - make some changes
  - pause, so that they array gets marked 'clean',
the event count on the superblock of included drives
will be the same as that of the removed drives.
So adding the removed drive back in will cause it
to be included with no resync.

To avoid this, we only update the eventcount backwards when the array
is not degraded.  In this case there can (should) be no non-connected
drives that we can get confused with, and this is the particular case
where updating-backwards is valuable.

[PATCH] ufs: truncate correction

1) When we allocated last fragment in ufs_truncate, we read page, check
   if block mapped to address, and if not trying to allocate it.  This is
   wrong behaviour, fragment may be NOT allocated, but mapped, this
   happened because of "block map" function not checked allocated fragment
   or not, it just take address of the first fragment in the block, add
   offset of fragment and return result, this is correct behaviour in
   almost all situation except call from ufs_truncate.

2) Almost all implementation of UFS, which I can investigate have such
   "defect": if you have full disk, and try truncate file, for example 3GB
   to 2MB, and have hole in this region, truncate return -ENOSPC.  I tried
   evade from this problem, but "block allocation" algorithm is tied to
   right value of i_lastfrag, and fix of this corner case may slow down of
   ordinaries scenarios, so this patch makes behavior of "truncate"
   operations similar to what other UFS implementations do.

[PATCH] ufs: write to hole in big file

On UFS, this scenario:
open(O_TRUNC)
lseek(1024 * 1024 * 80)
write("A")
lseek(1024 * 2)
write("A")

may cause access to invalid address.

This happened because of "goal" is calculated in wrong way in block
allocation path, as I see this problem exists also in 2.4.

We use construction like this i_data[lastfrag], i_data array of pointers to
direct blocks, indirect and so on, it has ceratain size ~20 elements, and
lastfrag may have value for example 40000.

Also this patch fixes related to handling such scenario issues, wrong
zeroing metadata, in case of block(not fragment) allocation, and wrong goal
calculation, when we allocate block

important (a task may stay zombie for a long time), but this doesn't mean
we should explicitely ignore other EXIT_XXX states.

When reading /dev/vcsa while a font with more than 256 characters is

But depending on the console driver (vgacon or fbcon for instance), that's
bit 3 or bit 0.  And there is no way for userland to know that, thus no way

using the linux kernel driver fails because calculation of the checksum is
not endianess independent in the original code.

After I fixed this I found that uploading firmware in a system with
multiple cards causes a kernel oops.  I had a look in the recent moxa
sources and found that they do some kind of locking there.  Applying this
lock fixed the problem.

Alan sayeth:

  Checksum changes are clearly correct.  Other changes is an improvement but
  not I think enough to handle malicious firmware attacks.  That said such an
  attacker has CAP_SYS_RAWIO anyway so that part is irrelevant except for
  neatness.

[PATCH] cpufreq: acpi-cpufreq: Ignore failure from acpi_cpufreq_early_init_acpi

Ignore the return value of early_init_acpi(), as it can give false error
messages.  If there is something really wrong, then register_driver will
fail cleanly with EINVAL later.

[ background: modprobe acpi-cpufreq on systems not capable of speed-scaling
  started failing with 'invalid argument', where previously it would only
  ever -ENODEV

  I'm not 100% happy with the solution. It'd be better to handle
  failure properly, but this is a low-impact change for 2.6.18
  We can always revisit doing this better in .19   --davej.]

[PATCH] revert "Drop tasklist lock in do_sched_setscheduler"

sched_setscheduler() looks at ->signal->rlim[].  It is unsafe do
dereference ->signal unless tasklist_lock or ->siglock is held (or p ==
current).  We pin the task structure, but this can't prevent from
release_task()->__exit_signal() which sets ->signal = NULL.

Restore tasklist_lock across the setscheduler call.

OK, I'm having a look here; its all new to me so bear with me.

blkdev_open() calls
  do_open(bdev, ...,BD_MUTEX_NORMAL) and takes
    mutex_lock_nested(&bdev->bd_mutex, BD_MUTEX_NORMAL)

then something fails, and we're thrown to:

out_first: where
    if (bdev != bdev->bd_contains)
      blkdev_put(bdev->bd_contains) which is
        __blkdev_put(bdev->bd_contains, BD_MUTEX_NORMAL) which does
          mutex_lock_nested(&bdev->bd_contains->bd_mutex, BD_MUTEX_NORMAL) <--- lockdep trigger

When going to out_first, dbev->bd_contains is either bdev or whole, and
since we take the branch it must be whole. So it seems to me the
following patch would be the right one:

[PATCH] 1394: fix for recently added firewire patch that breaks things on ppc

Recently a patch was added for preliminary suspend/resume handling on
!PPC_PMAC.  However, this broke both suspend and firewire on powerpc
because it saves the pci state after the device has already been disabled.

This moves the save state to before the pmac specific code.
