Brice Goglin [Mon, 21 Aug 2006 21:36:56 +0000]
[PATCH] myri10ge: use multicast support in the firmware

Some recent myri10ge firmwares support multicast filtering as well
as an extended mcp_irq_data structure (64 instead of 40 bytes).
The new command MXGEFW_CMD_SET_STATS_DMA_V2 is used to check
whether the firmware support those. mgp->fw_multicast_support
is defined accordingly.

When fw_multicast_support is set, some new multicast filtering
commands is passed to the board in myri10ge_set_multicast_list().

When the bridge recomputes features, it does not maintain the
constraint that SG/GSO must be off if TX checksum is off.
This patch adds that constraint.

On a completely unrelated note, I've also added TSO6 and TSO_ECN
feature bits if GSO is enabled on the underlying device through
the new NETIF_F_GSO_SOFTWARE macro.

15 years ago[BNX2]: Fix tx race condition.
Michael Chan [Tue, 15 Aug 2006 08:39:10 +0000]
[BNX2]: Fix tx race condition.

Fix a subtle race condition between bnx2_start_xmit() and bnx2_tx_int()
similar to the one in tg3 discovered by Herbert Xu:

CPU0 CPU1
bnx2_start_xmit()
if (tx_ring_full) {
tx_lock
bnx2_tx()
if (!netif_queue_stopped)
netif_stop_queue()
if (!tx_ring_full)
update_tx_ring
netif_wake_queue()
tx_unlock
}

Even though tx_ring is updated before the if statement in bnx2_tx_int() in
program order, it can be re-ordered by the CPU as shown above.  This
scenario can cause the tx queue to be stopped forever if bnx2_tx_int() has
just freed up the entire tx_ring.  The possibility of this happening
should be very rare though.

The following changes are made, very much identical to the tg3 fix:

1. Add memory barrier to fix the above race condition.

2. Eliminate the private tx_lock altogether and rely solely on
netif_tx_lock.  This eliminates one spinlock in bnx2_start_xmit()
when the ring is full.

3. Because of 2, use netif_tx_lock in bnx2_tx_int() before calling
netif_wake_queue().

4. Add memory barrier to bnx2_tx_avail().

5. Add bp->tx_wake_thresh which is set to half the tx ring size.

6. Check for the full wake queue condition before getting
netif_tx_lock in tg3_tx().  This reduces the number of unnecessary

[NET]: Terminology in ip-sysctl.txt

this minor patch fixes the description of net.ipv4.tcp_mem sysctl
in ip-sysctl.txt - the headline names the values "min, pressure, max",
while the description uses the "low, pressure, high" values.
Both tcp_rmem and tcp_wmem descriptions use the "min, pressure, max"
values, so I have changed the tcp_mem to match this and not vice versa.

Ananth N Mavinakayanahalli [Fri, 11 Aug 2006 11:31:34 +0000]
[POWERPC] kprobes: Fix possible system crash during out-of-line single-stepping

- On archs that have no-exec support, we vmalloc() a executable scratch
area of PAGE_SIZE and divide it up into an array of slots of maximum
instruction size for that arch
- On a kprobe registration, the original instruction is copied to the
first available free slot, so if multiple kprobes are registered, chances
are, they get contiguous slots
- On POWER4, due to not having coherent icaches, we could hit a situation
where a probe that is registered on one processor, is hit immediately on
another. This second processor could have fetched the stream of text from
the out-of-line single-stepping area *before* the probe registration
completed, possibly due to an earlier (and a different) kprobe hit and
hence would see stale data at the slot.

Executing such an arbitrary instruction lead to a problem as reported
in LTC bugzilla 23555.

The correct solution is to call flush_icache_range() as soon as the
instruction is copied for out-of-line single-stepping, so the correct
instruction is seen on all processors.

Thanks to Will Schmidt who tracked this down.

[POWERPC] Make secondary CPUs call into kdump on reset exception

In the case of a system hang, the user will invoke soft-reset to
initiate the kdump boot.  If xmon is enabled, the CPU(s) enter into the
xmon debugger.   Unfortunately, the secondary CPU(s) will return to the
hung state when they exit from the debugger (returned from die() ->
system_reset_exception()).  This causes a problem in kdump since the
hung CPU(s) will not respond to the IPI sent from kdump.  This patch
fixes the issue by calling crash_kexec_secondary() directly from
system_reset_exception() without returning to the previous state.  These
secondary CPUs wait 5ms until the kdump boot is started by the primary
CPU.   In the case we exited from the debugger to "recover" (command 'x'
in xmon) the primary and the secondary CPUs will all return from die()
-> system_reset_exception() ->crash_kexec_secondary() wait 5ms, then
return to the previous state.  A kdump boot is not started in this case.
