[PATCH] m32r: Support M32104UT target platform

This patch is for supporting a new target platform, Renesas M32104UT
evaluation board.

The M32104UT is an eval board based on an uT-Engine specification.  This board
has an MMU-less M32R family processor, M32104.
http://www-wa0.personal-media.co.jp/pmc/archive/te/te_m32104_e.pdf

This board is one of the most popular M32R platform, so we have ported
Linux/M32R to it.

Rafael J. Wysocki [Fri, 6 Jan 2006 08:17:58 +0000]
[PATCH] swsusp: save image header first

This makes the swsusp_info structure become the header of the image in the
literal sense (ie.  it is saved to the swap and read before any other image
data with the help of the swsusp's swap map structure, so generally it is
treated in the same way as the rest of the image).

The main thing it does is to make swsusp_header contain the offset of the swap
map used to track the image data pages rather than the offset of swsusp_info.
 Simultaneously, swsusp_info becomes the first image page written to the swap.

The other changes are generally consequences of the above with a few
exceptions (there's some consolidation in the image reading part as a few
functions turn into trivial wrappers around something else).

[PATCH] swsusp: fix enough_free_mem

This patch fixes a problem with the function enough_free_mem() used by
swsusp to verify if there is a sufficient number of memory pages available
to it to create and save the suspend image.

Namely, enough_free_mem() uses nr_free_pages() to obtain the number of free
memory pages, which is incorrect, because this function returns the total
number of free pages, including free highmem pages, and the highmem pages
cannot be used by swsusp for storing the image data.

pages as available to swsusp.

[PATCH] swsusp: introduce the swap map structure

This patch introduces the swap map structure that can be used by swsusp for
keeping tracks of data pages written to the swap.   The structure itself is
described in a comment within the patch.

The overall idea is to reduce the amount of metadata written to the swap and
to write and read the image pages sequentially, in a file-alike way.  This
makes the swap-handling part of swsusp fairly independent of its
snapshot-handling part and will hopefully allow us to completely separate
these two parts in the future.

This patch is needed to remove the suspend image size limit imposed by the
limited size of the swsusp_info structure, which is essential for x86-64
systems with more than 512 MB of RAM.

o Currently, during kexec reboot, IOAPIC is re-programmed back to virtual
  wire mode if there was an i8259 connected to it. This enables getting
  timer interrupts in second kernel in legacy mode.

o After putting into virtual wire mode, IOAPIC delivers the i8259 interrupts
  to CPU0. This works well for kexec but not for kdump as we might crash
  on a different CPU and second kernel will not see timer interrupts.

o This patch modifies the redirection table entry to deliver the timer
  interrupts to the cpu we are rebooting (instead of hardcoding to zero).
  This ensures that second kernel receives timer interrupts even on a
  non-boot cpu.

Dave Jones [Fri, 6 Jan 2006 08:12:10 +0000]
[PATCH] x86: change_page_attr() fix

The 'make rodata read-only' patch in -mm exposes a latent bug in the 32-bit
change_page_attr() function, which causes certain CPUs (Those with NX
basically) to reboot instantly after pages are marked read-only.

The same bug got fixed a while back on x86-64, but never got propagated to
i386.

Stuart Hayes from Dell also picked up on this last June, but it never got
fixed, as the only thing affected by it aparently was the nvidia driver.

Blatantly stealing description from his post..

"It doesn't appear to be fixed (in the i386 arch).  The
 change_page_attr()/split_large_page() code will still still set all the
 4K PTEs to PAGE_KERNEL (setting the _PAGE_NX bit) when a large page
 needs to be split.

 This wouldn't be a problem for the bulk of the kernel memory, but there
 are pages in the lower 4MB of memory that's free, and are part of large
 executable pages that also contain kernel code.  If change_page_attr()
 is called on these, it will set the _PAGE_NX bit on the whole 2MB region
 that was covered by the large page, causing a large chunk of kernel code
 to be non-executable."

Ashok Raj [Fri, 6 Jan 2006 08:12:08 +0000]
[PATCH] x86: convert bigsmp to use flat physical mode

When we bring up a new CPU via INIT/startup IPI messages, the CPU that's
coming up sends a xTPR message to the chipset.  Intel chipsets (at least)
don't provide any architectural guarantee on what the chipset will do with
this message.  For example, the E850x chipsets uses this xTPR message to
interpret the interrupt operating mode of the platform.  When the CPU
coming online sends this message, it always indicates that it is in logical
flat mode.  For the CPU hotplug case, the platform may already be
functioning in cluster APIC mode at this time, the chipset can get confused
and mishandle I/O device and IPI interrupt routing.

The situation eventually gets corrected when the new CPU sends another xTPR
update when we switch it to cluster mode, but there's a window during which
the chipset may be in an inconsistent state.  This patch avoids this
problem by using the flat physical interrupt delivery mode instead of
cluster mode for bigsmp (>8 cpu) support.

Bug fix required for the .rodata work on x86-64:

when change_page_attr() and friends need to break up a 2Mb page into 4Kb
pages, it always set the NX bit on the PMD, which causes the cpu to consider
the entire 2Mb region to be NX regardless of the actual PTE perms.  This is
fine in general, with one big exception: the 2Mb page that covers the last
part of the kernel .text!  The fix is to not invent a new permission for the
new PMD entry, but to just inherit the existing one minus the PSE bit.

Zachary Amsden [Fri, 6 Jan 2006 08:11:55 +0000]
[PATCH] x86: Pnp byte granularity

The one remaining caller of set_limit, the PnP BIOS code, calls into the PnP
BIOS, passing kernel parameters in and out.  These parameteres may be passed
from arbitrary kernel virtual memory, so they deserve strict protection to
stop a bad BIOS from smashing beyond the object size.

Unfortunately, the use of set_limit was badly botching this by setting the
limit in terms of pages, when it really should have byte granularity.

When doing this, I discovered my BIOS had the buggy code during the "get
system device node" call:

 mov ax, es:[bx]

Which is harmless, but has a trivial workaround.

15 years ago[PATCH] x86: Always relax segments
Zachary Amsden [Fri, 6 Jan 2006 08:11:53 +0000]
[PATCH] x86: Always relax segments

APM BIOSes have many bugs regarding proper representation of the appropriate
segment limits for calling the BIOS.  By default, APM_RELAX_SEGMENTS is always
turned on to support running the APM BIOS on these buggy machines.  Keeping
64k limits poses very little danger to the kernel, because the pages where the
APM BIOS is located will always be in low physical memory BIOS areas, which
should already be marked reserved, and only buggy BIOSes would possibly
overstep the segment bounds with writes to data anyway.

Since forcing stricter limits breaks many machines and is not default
behavior, it seems reasonable to deprecate the older code which may cause APM
BIOS to fault.

If you really have a badly enough broken APM BIOS that you have to turn off
APM_RELAX_SEGMENTS, seems like the best recourse here would be to disable the
APM BIOS and / or not compile it into your kernel to begin with, and / or add
your system to the known bad list.

The reason I want to deprecate this code is there is underlying brokenness
with the set_limit macros, and getting rid of many of the call sites rather
than rewriting them seems to be the simplest and most correct course of
action.

Jan Beulich [Fri, 6 Jan 2006 08:11:48 +0000]
[PATCH] i386: don't blindly enable interrupts in die()

Rather than blindly re-enabling interrupts in die(), save their state
upon entry and then restore that state.

If the kernel is in really bad condition and faults with interrupts disabled,
re-enabling them in die() may cause even more trouble, implying more chances
of data corruption.

[PATCH] x86: GDT alignment fix

Make GDT page aligned and page padded to support running inside of a
hypervisor.  This prevents false sharing of the GDT page with other hot
data, which is not allowed in Xen, and causes performance problems in
VMware.

Rather than go back to the old method of statically allocating the GDT
(which wastes unneded space for non-present CPUs), the GDT for APs is
allocated dynamically.

[PATCH] frv: improve signal handling

The attached patch improves the signal handling:

 (1) It makes do_signal() static as it isn't called from anywhere outside of
     the arch code.

 (2) It removes the regs argument to all the static functions within that file,
     using __frame instead (which is the same thing held in a global register).

[PATCH] frv: fix signal handling

The attached patch makes FRV signal handling work properly:

 (1) After do_notify_resume() has been called, the work flags must be checked
     again (there may be another signal to deliver or the process might require
     rescheduling for instance).

 (2) After the signal frame is set up on the userspace stack, ptrace() should
     be given an opportunity to single-step into the signal handler.

 (3) The error state from setting up a signal frame should be passed back up
     the call chain.

 (4) The segfault handler shouldn't be preemptively reset in the arch if we
     fail to deliver a SEGV signal: force_sig() will take care of that.

[PATCH] NOMMU: Make SYSV IPC SHM use ramfs facilities on NOMMU

The attached patch makes the SYSV IPC shared memory facilities use the new
ramfs facilities on a no-MMU kernel.

The following changes are made:

 (1) There are now shmem_mmap() and shmem_get_unmapped_area() functions to
     allow the IPC SHM facilities to commune with the tiny-shmem and shmem
     code.

 (2) ramfs files now need resizing using do_truncate() rather than by modifying
     the inode size directly (see shmem_file_setup()). This causes ramfs to
     attempt to bind a block of pages of sufficient size to the inode.

 (3) CONFIG_SYSVIPC is no longer contingent on CONFIG_MMU.

David Howells [Fri, 6 Jan 2006 08:11:41 +0000]
[PATCH] NOMMU: Provide shared-writable mmap support on ramfs

The attached patch makes ramfs support shared-writable mmaps by:

 (1) Attempting to perform a contiguous block allocation to the requested size
     when truncate attempts to increase the file from zero size, such as
     happens when:

fd = shm_open("/file/on/ramfs", ...):
ftruncate(fd, size_requested);
addr = mmap(NULL, subsize, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE|PROT_EXEC, MAP_SHARED,
    fd, offset);

 (2) Permitting any shared-writable mapping over any contiguous set of extant
     pages. get_unmapped_area() will return the address into the actual ramfs
     pages. The mapping may start anywhere and be of any size, but may not go
     over the end of file. Multiple mappings may overlap in any way.

 (3) Not permitting a file to be shrunk if it would truncate any shared
     mappings (private mappings are copied).

Thus this patch provides support for POSIX shared memory on NOMMU kernels,
with certain limitations such as there being a large enough block of pages
available to support the allocation and it only working on directly mappable
filesystems.

on 32 bit platforms and 64 bits on 64 bit platforms.

15 years ago[PATCH] mm: move determination of policy_zone into page allocator
Christoph Lameter [Fri, 6 Jan 2006 08:11:17 +0000]
[PATCH] mm: move determination of policy_zone into page allocator

Currently the function to build a zonelist for a BIND policy has the side
effect to set the policy_zone.  This seems to be a bit strange.  policy
zone seems to not be initialized elsewhere and therefore 0.  Do we police
ZONE_DMA if no bind policy has been used yet?

This patch moves the determination of the zone to apply policies to into
the page allocator.  We determine the zone while building the zonelist for
nodes.

15 years ago[PATCH] vmscan: balancing fix
Andrew Morton [Fri, 6 Jan 2006 08:11:14 +0000]
[PATCH] vmscan: balancing fix

Revert a patch which went into 2.6.8-rc1.  The changelog for that patch was:

  The shrink_zone() logic can, under some circumstances, cause far too many
  pages to be reclaimed.  Say, we're scanning at high priority and suddenly
  hit a large number of reclaimable pages on the LRU.

  Change things so we bale out when SWAP_CLUSTER_MAX pages have been
  reclaimed.

Problem is, this change caused significant imbalance in inter-zone scan
balancing by truncating scans of larger zones.

Suppose, for example, ZONE_HIGHMEM is 10x the size of ZONE_NORMAL.  The zone
balancing algorithm would require that if we're scanning 100 pages of
ZONE_HIGHMEM, we should scan 10 pages of ZONE_NORMAL.  But this logic will
cause the scanning of ZONE_HIGHMEM to bale out after only 32 pages are
reclaimed.  Thus effectively causing smaller zones to be scanned relatively
harder than large ones.

Now I need to remember what the workload was which caused me to write this
patch originally, then fix it up in a different way...

Nikita Danilov [Fri, 6 Jan 2006 08:11:08 +0000]
[PATCH] find_lock_page(): call __lock_page() directly.

As find_lock_page() already checks with TestSetPageLocked() that page is
locked, there is no need to call lock_page() that will try-lock page again
(chances of page being unlocked in between are small).  Call __lock_page()
directly, this saves one atomic operation.

Also, mark truncate-while-slept path as unlikely while we are here.

(akpm: ug.  But this is actually a common path for normal old read()s against
a page which is under readahead I/O so ho-hum.)

[PATCH] FRV: Clean up bootmem allocator's page freeing algorithm

The attached patch cleans up the way the bootmem allocator frees pages.

A new function, __free_pages_bootmem(), is provided in mm/page_alloc.c that is
called from mm/bootmem.c to turn pages over to the main allocator.  All the
bits of code to initialise pages (clearing PG_reserved and setting the page
count) are moved to here.  The checks on page validity are removed, on the
assumption that the struct page arrays will have been prepared correctly.
