[PATCH] uml: split CONFIG_FRAME_POINTER from DEBUG_INFO

Until now, FRAME_POINTER was set = DEBUG_INFO for UML.  Change it to be the
default way, so that it can be enabled alone (for instance to get better
backtraces on crashes).  The call-trace dumper which uses the frame pointer is
not yet in, I'm going to introduce it in a separate patch.

[PATCH] intelfb section fix

On Nov 16 2004 a change to intelfbdrv.c was commited (as part of 0.9.2 it
looks like) that added __initdata to all of the module param variables that
seems to create the opportunity for an oops.

I've recently been chasing an OOPS
(http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-kernel&m=111552250920370&w=2) I
created by reading every file on the /sys file system and I've traced it
back to this code in the intelfbdrv.  Though I had root privs in my initial
problem report, it turns out they are un-necessary to generate the oops -
all you've got to do is "cat /sys/module/intelfb/parameters/mode" enough
times and eventually it will oops.

This is because sysfs automatically exports all module_param declarations
to the sysfs file system..  which means those variables can be dynamically
evaluated at any later time, which of course means marking them __initdata
is a bad idea ;)..  when they happen to be char *'s it is an especially bad
idea ;).

Applying the patch below clears up the OOPS for me.

Benjamin Herrenschmidt [Fri, 27 May 2005 19:53:02 +0000]
[PATCH] ppc32: Fix cpufreq vs. sleep issue

Recent kernels occasionally trigger a PMU timeout on some mac laptops,
typically on wakeup from sleep.  This seem to be caused by either a too big
latency caused by the cpufreq switch on wakeup from sleep or by an
interrupt beeing lost due to the reset of the interrupt controller done
during wakeup.

This patch makes that code more robust by stopping PMU auto poll activity
around cpufreq changes on machines that use the PMU for such changes (long
latency switching involving a CPU hard reset and flush of all caches) and
by removing the reset of the open pic interrupt controller on wakeup (that
can cause the loss of an interrupt and Darwin doesn't do it, so it must not
be necessary).

John Hawkes [Fri, 27 May 2005 19:53:00 +0000]
[PATCH] drop note_interrupt() for per-CPU for proper scaling

The "unhandled interrupts" catcher, note_interrupt(), increments a global
desc->irq_count and grossly damages scaling of very large systems, e.g.,
>192p ia64 Altix, because of this highly contented cacheline, especially
for timer interrupts.  384p is severely crippled, and 512p is unuseable.

All calls to note_interrupt() can be disabled by booting with "noirqdebug",
but this disables the useful interrupt checking for all interrupts.

I propose eliminating note_interrupt() for all per-CPU interrupts.  This
was the behavior of linux-2.6.10 and earlier, but in 2.6.11 a code
restructuring added a call to note_interrupt() for per-CPU interrupts.
Besides, note_interrupt() is a bit racy for concurrent CPU calls anyway, as
the desc->irq_count++ increment isn't atomic (which, if done, would make
scaling even worse).

Paul Jackson [Fri, 27 May 2005 09:02:43 +0000]
[PATCH] cpuset exit NULL dereference fix

There is a race in the kernel cpuset code, between the code
to handle notify_on_release, and the code to remove a cpuset.
The notify_on_release code can end up trying to access a
cpuset that has been removed.  In the most common case, this
causes a NULL pointer dereference from the routine cpuset_path.
However all manner of bad things are possible, in theory at least.

The existing code decrements the cpuset use count, and if the
count goes to zero, processes the notify_on_release request,
if appropriate.  However, once the count goes to zero, unless we
are holding the global cpuset_sem semaphore, there is nothing to
stop another task from immediately removing the cpuset entirely,
and recycling its memory.

The obvious fix would be to always hold the cpuset_sem
semaphore while decrementing the use count and dealing with
notify_on_release.  However we don't want to force a global
semaphore into the mainline task exit path, as that might create
a scaling problem.

The actual fix is almost as easy - since this is only an issue
for cpusets using notify_on_release, which the top level big
cpusets don't normally need to use, only take the cpuset_sem
for cpusets using notify_on_release.

This code has been run for hours without a hiccup, while running
a cpuset create/destroy stress test that could crash the existing
kernel in seconds.  This patch applies to the current -linus
git kernel.

15 years ago[PATCH] remove non-cleanroom pwc driver compression
Alan Cox [Fri, 27 May 2005 12:40:53 +0000]
[PATCH] remove non-cleanroom pwc driver compression

The original pwc author raised some questions about the reverse
engineering of the decompressor algorithms used in the pwc driver.
Having done some detailed investigation it appears those concerns that
clean room policy was not followed are reasonable.  I've also had a
friendly discussion with Philips to ask their view on this.

This removes the problem items of code which reduces the pwc
functionality in the kernel a little but leaves all the framework for
setup that will be needed for decompressors in user space (where they
eventually belong).  This change set is designed to be the minimal risk
change set given that 2.6.12 is hopefully close to hand, with a view to
merging the much updated pwc code in 2.6.13 series kernels.

Someone else can then redo the decompressors properly (clean room) in
user space.

Note that while its easy to say that it should have been caught earlier,
but the violation was really only obvious to someone who had access to

[PATCH] i386: fix prevent_tail_call

We fixed this bug before, but it didn't take.  It may have been the case
that the problem was first noticed to occur in a CONFIG_REGPARM compile.
But it's not regparm functions that need not to make tail calls, it's
asmlinkage functions called with a user pt_regs frame on the stack
supplying their arguments.  prevent_tail_call probably doesn't do anything
at all in regparm functions (your argument registers are going to be
clobbered, period).  It was a braino to conditionalize that definition in
the first place.

Stephen Hemminger [Thu, 26 May 2005 19:55:01 +0000]
[PKT_SCHED] netem: use only inner qdisc -- no private skbuff queue

Netem works better if there if packets are just queued in the inner discipline
rather than having a separate delayed queue. Change to use the dequeue/requeue
to peek like TBF does.

By doing this potential qlen problems with the old method are avoided. The problems
happened when the netem_run that moved packets from the inner discipline to the nested
discipline failed (because inner queue was full). This happened in dequeue, so the
effective qlen of the netem would be decreased (because of the drop), but there was
no way to keep the outer qdisc (caller of netem dequeue) in sync.

The problem window is still there since this patch doesn't address the issue of
requeue failing in netem_dequeue, but that shouldn't happen since the sequence dequeue/requeue
should always work.  Long term correct fix is to implement qdisc->peek in all the qdisc's
to allow for this (needed by several other qdisc's as well).

[PATCH] timeout at boottime with NEC3500A (and possibly others) when inserted a CD in it

From: Marcello Maggioni <hayarms@gmail.com>

Problem: Some drives (NEC 3500, TDK 1616N, Mad-dog MD-16XDVD9, RICOH
MP5163DA, Memorex DVD9 drive and IO-DATA's too for sure), if a
CD/DVD is inserted into the tray when the system is booted and if
before the OS bootup the BIOS checked for the presence of a bootable
CD/DVD into the drive, during the IDE probe phase the drive may
result busy and remain so for the next 25/30 seconds . This cause the
drive to be skipped during the booting phase and not begin usable
until the next reboot (if the reboot goes well and the drive doesn't
timeout again).

Solution: Rising the timeout time from 10 seconds to 35 seconds
(during these 35 seconds every drive should wake up for sure
according to the tests I've done).

15 years ago[PATCH] libata: Fix zero sg_dma_len() on 64-bit platform
Albert Lee [Thu, 26 May 2005 07:49:42 +0000]
[PATCH] libata: Fix zero sg_dma_len() on 64-bit platform

When testing ATAPI PIO data transfer on the ppc64 platform,  __atapi_pio_bytes() got zero when
sg_dma_len() is used. I checked the <asm-ppc64/scatterlish.h>, the struct scatterlist is defined as:

struct scatterlist {
struct page *page;
unsigned int offset;
unsigned int length;

/* For TCE support */
u32 dma_address;
u32 dma_length;
};

#define sg_dma_address(sg) ((sg)->dma_address)
#define sg_dma_len(sg) ((sg)->dma_length)

So, if the scatterlist is not DMA mapped, sg_dma_len() will return zero on ppc64.
The same problem should occur on the x86-64 platform.
On the i386 platform, sg_dma_len() returns sg->length, that's why the problem does not occur on an i386.

Changes:
- Use sg->length if the scatterlist is not DMA mapped (yet).

There's a bigger Speedtouch update coming your way after 2.6.12 but in

[PATCH] ppc64 iSeries: fix boot time setting

For quite a while, there has existed a hypervisor bug on legacy iSeries
which means that we do not get the boot time set in the kernel.  This
patch works around that bug.  This was most noticable when the root
partition needed to be checked at every boot as the kernel thought it
was some time in 1905 until user mode reset the time correctly.

Stephen Rothwell [Wed, 25 May 2005 03:41:26 +0000]
[PATCH] ppc64: fix initialisation of gettimeofday calculations

On PPC64, we keep track of when we need to update jiffies (and the
variables used to calculate the time of day) based on the time base.

If the time base frequence is sufficiently high compared to the
processor clock frequency, then it is possible for the time of day
variables to be corrupted at the time of the first decrementer interrupt
we take.  This became obvious on a legacy iSeries where the time base
frequency is the same as the processor clock.

This one line patch fixes the initialisation so that the time of day
variables and the indicator we use to tell when updates are due are
better synchronised.

William Lee Irwin III [Wed, 25 May 2005 02:31:09 +0000]
[PATCH] try_to_unmap_cluster() passes out-of-bounds pte to pte_unmap()

try_to_unmap_cluster() does:
        for (pte = pte_offset_map(pmd, address);
                        address < end; pte++, address += PAGE_SIZE) {
...
}

pte_unmap(pte);

It may take a little staring to notice, but pte can actually fall off the
end of the pte page in this iteration, which makes life difficult for
kmap_atomic() and the users not expecting it to BUG().  Of course, we're
somewhat lucky in that arithmetic elsewhere in the function guarantees that
at least one iteration is made, lest this force larger rearrangements to be
made.  This issue and patch also apply to non-mm mainline and with trivial
adjustments, at least two related kernels.

Discovered during internal testing at Oracle.

David S. Miller [Mon, 23 May 2005 22:52:08 +0000]
[SPARC64]: Add boot option to force UltraSPARC-III P-Cache on.

Older UltraSPARC-III chips have a P-Cache bug that makes us disable it
by default at boot time.

However, this does hurt performance substantially, particularly with
memcpy(), and the bug is _incredibly_ obscure.  I have never seen it
triggered in practice, ever.

So provide a "-P" boot option that forces the P-Cache on.  It taints
the kernel, so if it does trigger and cause some data corruption or
OOPS, we will find out in the logs that this option was on when it
happened.
