[libata] mark certain hardware (or drivers) with a no-atapi flag

Some hardware does not support the PACKET command at all.
Other hardware supports ATAPI, but the driver does something nasty such
as calling BUG() when an ATAPI command is issued.

For these such cases, we mark them with a new flag, ATA_FLAG_NO_ATAPI.

Initial version contributed by Ben Collins.

Antonino A. Daplas [Tue, 13 Dec 2005 06:17:21 +0000]
[PATCH] fbdev: Fix incorrect unaligned access in little-endian machines

The drawing function cfbfillrect does not work correctly when access is not
unsigned-long aligned.  It manifests as extra lines of pixels that are not
complete drawn.  Reversing the shift operator solves the problem, so I would
presume that this bug would manifest only on little endian machines.  The
function cfbcopyarea may also have this bug.

Aligned access should present no problems.

Knut Petersen [Tue, 13 Dec 2005 06:17:19 +0000]
[PATCH] fbdev: fix switch to KD_TEXT, enhanced version

Every framebuffer driver relies on the assumption that the set_par()
function of the driver is called before drawing functions and other
functions dependent on the hardware state are executed.

Whenever you switch from X to a framebuffer console for the very first
time, there is a chance that a broken X system has _not_ set the mode to
KD_GRAPHICS, thus the vt and framebuffer code executes a screen redraw and
several other functions before a set_par() is executed.  This is believed
to be not a bug of linux but a bug of X/xdm.  At least some X releases used
by SuSE and Debian show this behaviour.

There was a 2nd case, but that has been fixed by Antonino Daplas on
10-dec-2005.

This patch allows drivers to set a flag to inform fbcon_switch() that they
prefer a set_par() call on every console switch, working around the
problems caused by the broken X releases.

The flag will be used by the next release of cyblafb and might help other
drivers that assume a hardware state different to the one used by X.

As the default behaviour does not change, this patch should be acceptable
to everybody.

The bug was that the compute_hash_shift() was returning 31, with incorrect
initialization of memnodemap[]

To correct the bug, we must use (1UL << shift) instead of (1 << shift) to
avoid an integer overflow, and we must check that shift < 64 to avoid an

[PATCH] pcnet32: use MAC address from prom also on powerpc

The CSR contains garbage after a coldboot on RS/6000.
One some systems (like my 44p 270) the MAC address is all FF,
on others (like my B50) it is ff:ff:ff:fd:ff:6b.

It can eventually be fixed by loading pcnet32, set the interface
into the UP state, rmmod pcnet32 and load it again. But this worked
only on the 270.

Only netbooting after a cold start provides the correct MAC address
via prom and CSR. This makes it very unreliable.
I dont know why the MAC is stored in two different places. Remove
the special case for powerpc, which was added in early 2.4 development.

Revert revert of "[SCSI] fix usb storage oops"

This reverts commit 1b0997f561bf46689cc6e0903f342e9bf2506bf1, which in
turn reverted 34ea80ec6a02ad02e6b9c75c478c18e5880d6713 (which is thus
re-instated).

Quoth James Bottomley:

  "All it's doing is deferring the device_put() from the
   scsi_put_command() to after the scsi_run_queue(), which doesn't fix
   the sleep while atomic problem of the device release method.  In both
   cases we still get the semaphore in atomic context problem which is
   caused by scsi_reap_target() doing a device_del(), which I assumed
   (wrongly) was valid from atomic context."

The raid5 stripe cache was recently changed from fixed size (NR_STRIPES) to
variable size (conf->max_nr_stripes).  However there are two places that still

[PATCH] fix in __alloc_bootmem_core() when there is no free page in first node's memory

Hitting BUG_ON() in __alloc_bootmem_core() when there is no free page
available in the first node's memory.  For the case of kdump on PPC64
(Power 4 machine), the captured kernel is used two memory regions - memory
for TCE tables (tce-base and tce-size at top of RAM and reserved) and
captured kernel memory region (crashk_base and crashk_size).  Since we
reserve the memory for the first node, we should be returning from
__alloc_bootmem_core() to search for the next node (pg_dat).

Currently, find_next_zero_bit() is returning the n^th bit (eidx) when there
is no free page.  Then, test_bit() is failed since we set 0xff only for the
actual size initially (init_bootmem_core()) even though rounded up to one
page for bdata->node_bootmem_map.  We are hitting the BUG_ON after failing
to enter second "for" loop.

This adds a timestamp field to the events sent via the process event
connector.  The timestamp allows listeners to accurately account the
duration(s) between a process' events and offers strong means with which
to determine the order of events with respect to a given task while also
avoiding the addition of per-task data.

This alters the size and layout of the event structure and hence would

15 years ago[PATCH] Fix listxattr() for generic security attributes
Daniel Drake [Mon, 12 Dec 2005 08:37:08 +0000]
[PATCH] Fix listxattr() for generic security attributes

Commit f549d6c18c0e8e6cf1bf0e7a47acc1daf7e2cec1 introduced a generic
fallback for security xattrs, but appears to include a subtle bug.

Gentoo users with kernels with selinux compiled in, and coreutils compiled
with acl support, noticed that they could not copy files on tmpfs using
'cp'.

cp (compiled with acl support) copies the file, lists the extended
attributes on the old file, copies them all to the new file, and then
exits.  However the listxattr() calls were failing with this odd behaviour:

llistxattr("a.out", (nil), 0)           = 17
llistxattr("a.out", 0x7fffff8c6cb0, 17) = -1 ERANGE (Numerical result out of
range)

I believe this is a simple problem in the logic used to check the buffer
sizes; if the user sends a buffer the exact size of the data, then its ok
:)

This change solves the problem.

[PATCH] add rcu_barrier() synchronization point

This introduces a new interface - rcu_barrier() which waits until all
the RCUs queued until this call have been completed.

Reiser4 needs this, because we do more than just freeing memory object
in our RCU callback: we also remove it from the list hanging off
super-block.  This means, that before freeing reiser4-specific portion
of super-block (during umount) we have to wait until all pending RCU
callbacks are executed.

The only change of reiser4 made to the original patch, is exporting of
rcu_barrier().

[ARM] 3200/1: Singlestep over ARM BX and BLX instructions using ptrace fix

Patch from Nikola Valerjev

Single stepping an application using ptrace() fails over ARM instructions BX and BLX.

Steps to reproduce:

Compile and link the following files

main.c
-----
void foo();
int main() {
    foo();
    return 0;
}

foo.s
-----
.text
.globl foo
foo:
BX LR

Using ptrace() functionality, run to main(), and start singlestepping.
Singlestep over \"BX LR\" instruction won\'t transfer the control back
to main, but run the code to completion.

This problems seems to be in the function get_branch_address() in
arch/arm/kernel/ptrace.c. The function doesn\'t seem to recognize BX
and BLX instructions as branches. BX and BLX instructions can be used
to convert from ARM to Thumb mode if the target address has the low
bit set. However, they are also perfectly legal in the ARM only mode.
Although other things in the kernel seem to indicate that only ARM
mode is accepted (and not Thumb), many compilers will generate BX
and BLX instructions even when generating ARM only code.

[PATCH] powerpc: Fix SLB flushing path in hugepage

On ppc64, when opening a new hugepage region, we need to make sure any
old normal-page SLBs for the area are flushed on all CPUs.  There was
a bug in this logic - after putting the new hugepage area masks into
the thread structure, we copied it into the paca (read by the SLB miss
handler) only on one CPU, not on all.  This could cause incorrect SLB
entries to be loaded when a multithreaded program was running
simultaneously on several CPUs.  This patch corrects the error,
copying the context information into the PACA on all CPUs using the mm
in question before flushing any existing SLB entries.

[PATCH] powerpc: Add missing icache flushes for hugepages

On most powerpc CPUs, the dcache and icache are not coherent so
between writing and executing a page, the caches must be flushed.
Userspace programs assume pages given to them by the kernel are icache
clean, so we must do this flush between the kernel clearing a page and
it being mapped into userspace for execute.  We were not doing this
for hugepages, this patch corrects the situation.

We use the same lazy mechanism as we use for normal pages, delaying
the flush until userspace actually attempts to execute from the page
in question.

Tested on G5.

Olof Johansson [Fri, 9 Dec 2005 01:40:17 +0000]
[PATCH] powerpc: Set cache info defaults

Cache info is setup by walking the device tree in initialize_cache_info().
However, icache_flush_range might be called before that, in
slb_initialize()->patch_slb_encoding, which modifies the load immediate
instructions used with SLB fault code.

Not only that, but depending on memory layout, we might take SLB faults
during unflatten_device_tree. So that fault will load an SLB entry that
might not contain the right LLP flags for the segment.

Either we can walk the flattened device tree to setup cache info, or
we can pick the known defaults that are known to work. Doing it in the
flattened device tree is hairier since we need to know the machine type
to know what property to look for, etc, etc.

For now, it's just easier to go with the defaults. Worst thing that
happens from it is that we might waste a few cycles doing too small
dcbst/icbi increments.
