15 years ago[PATCH] MTRR suspend/resume cleanup

[PATCH] MTRR suspend/resume cleanup

There has been some discuss about solving the SMP MTRR suspend/resume
breakage, but I didn't find a patch for it.  This is an intent for it.  The
basic idea is moving mtrr initializing into cpu_identify for all APs (so it
works for cpu hotplug).  For BP, restore_processor_state is responsible for
restoring MTRR.

[PATCH] hvc_console: Rearrange code

Milton Miller has done a lot of work to clean up our hvc_console code.

One of the important things the following patch series does is separate the
VIO layer from the hvc_console code.  With the VIO specific code removed any
ppc64 platform, or even any architecture, can use hvc_console as a generic
polling console.  You simply have to supply a get_chars and put_chars method
and hvc_console does the rest of the work.  You can even use it for an
interrupt driven console.

This patch:

Rearrange the code in drivers/char/hvc_console.c to make future patches
smaller.  No actual code changes, just ordering of the functions in the file.

Enable the runlatch at the start of each exception.  Unfortunately we are out
of space in the 0x300 handler, so I added it a bit later.

The SPR write is fairly expensive, perhaps we should cache the runlatch state
in the paca and avoid the write when possible.

We don't need to turn the runlatch off, we do that in the idle loop.  Better
to take the hit in the idle loop than for each exception exit.

[PATCH] mm: quieten OOM killer noise

We now print statistics when invoking the OOM killer, however this
information is not rate limited and you can get into situations where the
console is continually spammed.

For example, when a task is exiting the OOM killer will simply return
(waiting for that task to exit and clear up memory).  If the VM continually
calls back into the OOM killer we get thousands of copies of show_mem() on
the console.

Use printk_ratelimit() to quieten it.

Mark Fasheh [Fri, 8 Jul 2005 00:56:03 +0000]
[PATCH] export generic_drop_inode() to modules

OCFS2 wants to mark an inode which has been orphaned by another node so
that during final iput it takes the correct path through the VFS and can
pass through the OCFS2 delete_inode callback.  Since i_nlink can get out of
date with other nodes, the best way I see to accomplish this is by clearing
i_nlink on those inodes at drop_inode time.  Other than this small amount
of work, nothing different needs to happen, so I think it would be cleanest
to be able to just call generic_drop_inode at the end of the OCFS2
drop_inode callback.

Ivan Kokshaysky [Wed, 6 Jul 2005 23:07:56 +0000]
[PATCH] yet another fix for setup-bus.c/x86 merge

There is a slight disagreement between setup-bus.c code and traditional
x86 PCI setup wrt which recourses are invalid vs resources that are free
for further allocations.

In particular, in the setup-bus.c, if we failed to allocate some resource,
we nullify "start" and "flags" fields, but *not* the "end" one.

But x86 pcibios_enable_resources() does the following check:

if (!r->start && r->end) {
printk(KERN_ERR "PCI: Device %s not available because of resource collisions\n", pci_name(dev));
return -EINVAL;

which means that the device owning the offending resource cannot be
enabled.

In particular, this breaks cardbus behind the normal decode p2p bridge -
the cardbus code from setup-bus.c requests rather large IO and MEM
windows, and if it fails, the socket is completely unavailable.  Which
is wrong, as the yenta code is capable to allocate smaller windows.

[IA64] memory-less-nodes repost

I reworked how nodes with only CPUs are treated.  The patch below seems
simpler to me and has eliminated the complicated routine
reassign_cpu_only_nodes.  There isn't any longer the requirement
to modify ACPI NUMA information which was in large part the
complexity introduced in reassign_cpu_only_nodes.

This patch will produce a different number of nodes. For example,
reassign_cpu_only_nodes would reduce two CPUonly nodes and one memory node
configuration to one memory+CPUs node configuration.  This patch
doesn't change the number of nodes which means the user will see three.  Two
nodes without memory and one node with all the memory.

While doing this patch, I noticed that early_nr_phys_cpus_node isn't serving
any useful purpose.  It is called once in find_pernode_space but the value
isn't used to computer pernode space.

[CRYPTO] Add x86_64 asm AES

Implementation:
===============
The encrypt/decrypt code is based on an x86 implementation I did a while
ago which I never published. This unpublished implementation does
include an assembler based key schedule and precomputed tables. For
simplicity and best acceptance, however, I took Gladman's in-kernel code
for table generation and key schedule for the kernel port of my
assembler code and modified this code to produce the key schedule as
required by my assembler implementation. File locations and Kconfig are
kept similar to the i586 AES assembler implementation.
It may seem a little bit strange to use 32 bit I/O and registers in the
assembler implementation but this gives the best code size. My
implementation takes one instruction more per round compared to
Gladman's x86 assembler but it doesn't require any stack for local
variables or saved registers and it is less serialized than Gladman's
code.
Note that all comparisons to Gladman's code were done after my code was
implemented. I did only use FIPS PUB 197 for the implementation so my
implementation is independent work.
If anybody has a better assembler solution for x86_64 I'll be pleased to
have my code replaced with the better solution.

Testing:
========
The implementation passes the in-kernel crypto testing module and I'm
running it without any problems on my laptop where it is mainly used for
dm-crypt.

Microbenchmark:
===============
The microbenchmark was done in userspace with similar compile flags as
used during kernel compile.
Encrypt/decrypt is about 35% faster than the generic C implementation.
As the generic C as well as my assembler implementation are both table
I don't really expect that there is much room for further
improvements though I'll be glad to be corrected here.
The key schedule is about 5% slower than the generic C implementation.
This is due to the fact that some more work has to be done in the key
schedule routine to fit the schedule to the assembler implementation.

Code Size:
==========
Encrypt and decrypt are together about 2.1 Kbytes smaller than the
generic C implementation which is important with regard to L1 cache
usage. The key schedule routine is about 100 bytes larger than the
generic C implementation.

Data Size:
==========
There's no difference in data size requirements between the assembler
implementation and the generic C implementation.

License:
========
Gladmans's code is dual BSD/GPL whereas my assembler code is GPLv2 only
(I'm  not going to change the license for my code). So I had to change
the module license for the x86_64 aes module from 'Dual BSD/GPL' to
'GPL' to reflect the most restrictive license within the module.

[CRYPTO] Add null short circuit to crypto_free_tfm

As far as I'm aware there's a general concensus that functions that are
responsible for freeing resources should be able to cope with being passed
a NULL pointer. This makes sense as it removes the need for all callers to
check for NULL, thus elliminating the bugs that happen when some forget
(safer to just check centrally in the freeing function) and it also makes
for smaller code all over due to the lack of all those NULL checks.
This patch makes it safe to pass the crypto_free_tfm() function a NULL
pointer. Once this patch is applied we can start removing the NULL checks
from the callers.

As a side-effect this improves the performance of large cipher operations
