[PATCH] RLIMIT_AS checking fix

Address bug #4508: there's potential for wraparound in the various places
where we perform RLIMIT_AS checking.

(I'm a bit worried about acct_stack_growth().  Are we sure that vma->vm_mm is
always equal to current->mm?  If not, then we're comparing some other
process's total_vm with the calling process's rlimits).

[PATCH] kbuild/i386: re-introduce dependency on vmlinux for install target, and add kernel_install

Removing the dependency on vmlinux for the install target raised a few
complaints, so instead a new target i added: kernel_install.

kernel_install will install the kernel just like the ordinary install target.
The only difference is that install has a dependency on vmlinux,
kernel_install does not. Therefore kernel_install is the best choice
when accessing the kernel over a NFS mount or as another user.

kernel_install is similar to modules_install in the fact that neither does
a full kernel compile before performing the install.
In this way they are good for root use. Also added back the
dependency on vmlinux for the install target so peoples scripts are no
longer broken.

[PATCH] ppc64: fix 32-bit signal frame back link

When the kernel creates a signal frame on the user stack, it puts the
old stack pointer value at the beginning so that the signal frame is
linked into the chain of stack frames like any other frame.
Unfortunately, for 32-bit processes we are writing the old stack
pointer as a 64-bit value rather than a 32-bit value, and the process
sees that as a null pointer, since it only looks at the first 32 bits,
which are zero since ppc is bigendian and the stack pointer is below
4GB.  This bug is in SLES9 and RHEL4 too, hence the ccs.

This patch fixes the bug by making the signal code write the old stack
pointer as a u32 instead of an unsigned long.

[PATCH] ARM: 2660/2: fix ixdp2800 boot and pci init

Patch from Lennert Buytenhek

The IXDP2800 is an evalution platform for the IXP2800 processor that
has two IXP2800s connected to the same PCI bus.  This is problematic
as both CPUs will try to configure the PCI bus as they boot linux.
Contrary to on the other IXP2000 platforms, the boot loader on the
IXDP2800 doesn't configure the PCI bus properly, so we do want the
linux instance on one of the CPUs to do that.
Making one of the CPUs ignore the PCI bus (and thus act like a pure
PCI slave device) is not an option because there is a 82559 NIC on
the PCI bus for each of the CPUs.
The chosen solution is to have the master CPU configure the PCI bus
while the slave is kept in a quiescent state, and then to have the
slave CPU scan the PCI bus (without assigning resources) while the
master is kept in a quiescent state.  After this ritual, the master
deletes the slave NIC from its PCI device list, the slave deletes
the master NIC from its device list, and (almost) all is well.
There's still one little problem: each of the CPUs has a 1G SDRAM
BAR, but the IXP2000 only has 512M of outbound PCI memory window.
We solve this by hand-assigning the master and slave SDRAM BARs to
a location outside each of the IXP's outbound PCI windows, and by
having the rest of the BARs autoconfigured in the outbound PCI
windows, in the range [e0000000..ffffffff], so that there is a 1:1
pci:phys mapping between them.
Even with this patch, a number of issues still remain -- just imagine
what happens if one of the CPUs is rebooted, by watchdog or by hand,
but the other one isn't.  But those issues are not easily fixable
given the strange PCI layout of this board and the behavior of the
boot loader shipped with the platform.

[PATCH] ARM: 2651/3: kernel helpers for NPTL support

Patch from Nicolas Pitre

This patch entirely reworks the kernel assistance for NPTL on ARM.
In particular this provides an efficient way to retrieve the TLS
value and perform atomic operations without any instruction emulation
nor special system call.  This even allows for pre ARMv6 binaries to
be forward compatible with SMP systems without any penalty.
The problematic and performance critical operations are performed
through segment of kernel provided user code reachable from user space
at a fixed address in kernel memory.  Those fixed entry points are
within the vector page so we basically get it for free as no extra
memory page is required and nothing else may be mapped at that
location anyway.
This is different from (but doesn't preclude) a full blown VDSO
implementation, however a VDSO would prevent some assembly tricks with
constants that allows for efficient branching to those code segments.
And since those code segments only use a few cycles before returning to
user code, the overhead of a VDSO far call would add a significant
overhead to such minimalistic operations.
The ARM_NR_set_tls syscall also changed number.  This is done for two
reasons:
1) this patch changes the way the TLS value was previously meant to be
   retrieved, therefore we ensure whatever library using the old way
   gets fixed (they only exist in private tree at the moment since the
   NPTL work is still progressing).
2) the previous number was allocated in a range causing an undefined
   instruction trap on kernels not supporting that syscall and it was
   determined that allocating it in a range returning -ENOSYS would be
   much nicer for libraries trying to determine if the feature is
   present or not.

Patch from Lennert Buytenhek

Christoph Lameter [Thu, 28 Apr 2005 15:13:58 +0000]
[PATCH] time interpolator: Fix settimeofday inaccuracy

settimeofday will set the time a little bit too early on systems using
time interpolation since it subtracts the current interpolator offset
from the time. This used to be necessary with the code in 2.6.9 and earlier
but the new code resets the time interpolator after setting the time.
Thus the time is set too early and gettimeofday will return a time slightly
before the time specified with settimeofday if invoked immeditely after
settimeofday.

This removes the obsolete subtraction of the time interpolator offset
and makes settimeofday set the time accurately.

[IA64] re-enable preempt before page allocation for pgtable quicklist

This is a fix to the pgtable_quicklist code.  There is a GFP_KERNEL
allocation in pgtable_quicklist_alloc(), which spews the usual warnings
if the kernel is under heavy VM pressure and the reclaim code is
invoked.  re-enable preempt before we allocate the new page.

This patch is against 2.6.12-rc2-mm2
