14 years ago[PATCH] BLOCK: Make it possible to disable the block layer [try #6]
David Howells [Sat, 30 Sep 2006 18:45:40 +0000]
[PATCH] BLOCK: Make it possible to disable the block layer [try #6]

Make it possible to disable the block layer.  Not all embedded devices require
it, some can make do with just JFFS2, NFS, ramfs, etc - none of which require
the block layer to be present.

This patch does the following:

 (*) Introduces CONFIG_BLOCK to disable the block layer, buffering and blockdev
     support.

 (*) Adds dependencies on CONFIG_BLOCK to any configuration item that controls
     an item that uses the block layer.  This includes:

     (*) Block I/O tracing.

     (*) Disk partition code.

     (*) All filesystems that are block based, eg: Ext3, ReiserFS, ISOFS.

     (*) The SCSI layer.  As far as I can tell, even SCSI chardevs use the
       block layer to do scheduling.  Some drivers that use SCSI facilities -
       such as USB storage - end up disabled indirectly from this.

     (*) Various block-based device drivers, such as IDE and the old CDROM
       drivers.

     (*) MTD blockdev handling and FTL.

     (*) JFFS - which uses set_bdev_super(), something it could avoid doing by
       taking a leaf out of JFFS2's book.

 (*) Makes most of the contents of linux/blkdev.h, linux/buffer_head.h and
     linux/elevator.h contingent on CONFIG_BLOCK being set.  sector_div() is,
     however, still used in places, and so is still available.

 (*) Also made contingent are the contents of linux/mpage.h, linux/genhd.h and
     parts of linux/fs.h.

 (*) Makes a number of files in fs/ contingent on CONFIG_BLOCK.

 (*) Makes mm/bounce.c (bounce buffering) contingent on CONFIG_BLOCK.

 (*) set_page_dirty() doesn't call __set_page_dirty_buffers() if CONFIG_BLOCK
     is not enabled.

 (*) fs/no-block.c is created to hold out-of-line stubs and things that are
     required when CONFIG_BLOCK is not set:

     (*) Default blockdev file operations (to give error ENODEV on opening).

 (*) Makes some /proc changes:

     (*) /proc/devices does not list any blockdevs.

     (*) /proc/diskstats and /proc/partitions are contingent on CONFIG_BLOCK.

 (*) Makes some compat ioctl handling contingent on CONFIG_BLOCK.

 (*) If CONFIG_BLOCK is not defined, makes sys_quotactl() return -ENODEV if
     given command other than Q_SYNC or if a special device is specified.

 (*) In init/do_mounts.c, no reference is made to the blockdev routines if
     CONFIG_BLOCK is not defined.  This does not prohibit NFS roots or JFFS2.

 (*) The bdflush, ioprio_set and ioprio_get syscalls can now be absent (return
     error ENOSYS by way of cond_syscall if so).

 (*) The seclvl_bd_claim() and seclvl_bd_release() security calls do nothing if
     CONFIG_BLOCK is not set, since they can't then happen.

- The per-ioc rbtree of cfq_io_contexts

- The per-cfqd linked list of cfq_io_contexts

The per-cfqd linked list can be protected by the queue lock, as it is (by
definition) per cfqd as the queue lock is.

The per-ioc rbtree is mainly used and updated by the process itself only.
The only outside use is the io priority changing. If we move the
priority changing to not browsing the rbtree, we can remove any locking
from the rbtree updates and lookup completely. Let the sys_ioprio syscall
just mark processes as having the iopriority changed and lazily update
the private cfq io contexts the next time io is queued, and we can
remove this locking as well.

Jens Axboe [Sat, 22 Jul 2006 14:48:31 +0000]
[PATCH] cfq-iosched: cleanups, fixes, dead code removal

A collection of little fixes and cleanups:

- We don't use the 'queued' sysfs exported attribute, since the
  may_queue() logic was rewritten. So kill it.

- Remove dead defines.

- cfq_set_active_queue() can be rewritten cleaner with else if conditions.

- Several places had cfq_exit_cfqq() like logic, abstract that out and
  use that.

- Annotate the cfqq kmem_cache_alloc() so the allocator knows that this
  is a repeat allocation if it fails with __GFP_WAIT set. Allows the
  allocator to start freeing some memory, if needed. CFQ already loops for
  this condition, so might as well pass the hint down.

- Remove cfqd->rq_starved logic. It's not needed anymore after we dropped
  the crq allocation in cfq_set_request().

- Remove uneeded parameter passing.

Delay the call to adapter->client_register() until after we are

client is fully initialized and we no longer hold the adapter->clist

callback needs to take that mutex too, as is the case for the bttv
driver.

14 years ago[SCTP]: Do not timestamp every SCTP packet.
Vlad Yasevich [Sat, 30 Sep 2006 00:10:03 +0000]
[SCTP]: Do not timestamp every SCTP packet.

We only need the timestamp on COOKIE-ECHO chunks, so instead of always
timestamping every SCTP packet, let common code timestamp if the socket
option is set.  For COOKIE-ECHO, simply get the time of day if we don't
have a timestamp.  This introduces a small possibility that the cookie
may be considered expired, but it will be renegotiated.

14 years ago[SCTP]: Include sk_buff overhead while updating the peer's receive window.
Sridhar Samudrala [Sat, 30 Sep 2006 00:09:05 +0000]
[SCTP]: Include sk_buff overhead while updating the peer's receive window.

Currently if the sender is sending small messages, it can cause a receiver
to run out of receive buffer space even when the advertised receive window
is still open and results in packet drops and retransmissions. Including
a overhead while updating the sender's view of peer receive window will
reduce the chances of receive buffer space overshooting the receive window.

14 years ago[BNX2]: Disable MSI on 5706 if AMD 8132 bridge is present.
Michael Chan [Sat, 30 Sep 2006 00:06:23 +0000]
[BNX2]: Disable MSI on 5706 if AMD 8132 bridge is present.

MSI is defined to be 32-bit write.  The 5706 does 64-bit MSI writes
with byte enables disabled on the unused 32-bit word.  This is legal
but causes problems on the AMD 8132 which will eventually stop
responding after a while.

Without this patch, the MSI test done by the driver during open will
pass, but MSI will eventually stop working after a few MSIs are
written by the device.

AMD believes this incompatibility is unique to the 5706, and
prefers to locally disable MSI rather than globally disabling it
using pci_msi_quirk.

Update version to 1.4.45.

[PATCH] Re-positioning the bss segment

[AK: This apparently broke some systems, but we need it to fix
a compile problem with old binutils and in theory the patch
is correct. So let's trying reenabling it again.]

o Currently bss segment is being placed somewhere in the middle (after .data)
  section and after bss lots of init section and data sections are coming.
  Is it intentional?

o One side affect of placing bss in the middle is that objcopy keeps the
  bss in raw binary image (vmlinux.bin) hence unnecessarily increasing
  the size of raw binary image. (In my case ~600K). It also increases
  the size of generated bzImage, though the increase is very small
  (896 bytes), probably a very high compression ratio for stream
  of zeros.

o This patch moves the bss at the end hence reducing the size of
  bzImage by 896 bytes and size of vmlinux.bin by 600K.

o This change benefits in the context of relocatable kernel patches. If
  kernel bss is not part of compressed data (vmlinux.bin) then it does
  not have to be decompressed and this area can be used by the decompressor
  for its execution hence keeping the memory requirements bounded and
  decompressor code does not stomp over any other data loaded beyond
  kernel image (As might be the case with bootloaders like kexec).
