[PATCH] serial uartlite driver

Add a driver for the Xilinx uartlite serial controller used in boards with
the PPC405 core in the Xilinx V2P/V4 fpgas.

The hardware is very simple (baudrate/start/stopbits fixed and no break
support).  See the datasheet for details:

Suzuki K P [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:35:16 +0000]
[PATCH] Fix check_partition routines

check_partition() stops its probe once it hits an I/O error from the
partition checkers.  This would prevent the actual partition checker
getting a chance to verify the partition.

So this patch lets check_partition() continue probing untill it hits a
success while recording the I/O error which might have been reported by the
checking routines.

Also, it does some cleanup of the partition methods for ibm, atari and
amiga to return -1 upon hitting an I/O error.

14 years ago[PATCH] fix rescan_partitions to return errors properly
Suzuki Kp [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:35:14 +0000]
[PATCH] fix rescan_partitions to return errors properly

The current rescan_partition implementation ignores the errors that comes from
the lower layer.  It reports success for unknown partitions as well as I/O
error cases while reading the partition information.

The unknown partition is not (and will not be) considered as an error in the
kernel, since there are legal users of it (e.g, members of a RAID5 MD Device
or a new disk which is not partitioned at all ).  Changing this behaviour
would scare the user about a serious problem with their disk and is not
recommended.  Thus for both "unknown partitions" to the Linux (eg., DEC
VMS,Novell Netware) and the legal users of NULL partition, would still be
reported as "SUCCESS".

The patch attached here, scares the user about something which he does need to
worry about.  i.e, returning -EIO on disk I/O errors while reading the
partition information.

14 years ago[PATCH] swsusp: Improve handling of highmem
Rafael J. Wysocki [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:34:18 +0000]
[PATCH] swsusp: Improve handling of highmem

Currently swsusp saves the contents of highmem pages by copying them to the
normal zone which is quite inefficient (eg.  it requires two normal pages
to be used for saving one highmem page).  This may be improved by using
highmem for saving the contents of saveable highmem pages.

Namely, during the suspend phase of the suspend-resume cycle we try to
allocate as many free highmem pages as there are saveable highmem pages.
If there are not enough highmem image pages to store the contents of all of
the saveable highmem pages, some of them will be stored in the "normal"
memory.  Next, we allocate as many free "normal" pages as needed to store
the (remaining) image data.  We use a memory bitmap to mark the allocated
free pages (ie.  highmem as well as "normal" image pages).

Now, we use another memory bitmap to mark all of the saveable pages
(highmem as well as "normal") and the contents of the saveable pages are
copied into the image pages.  Then, the second bitmap is used to save the
pfns corresponding to the saveable pages and the first one is used to save
their data.

During the resume phase the pfns of the pages that were saveable during the
suspend are loaded from the image and used to mark the "unsafe" page
frames.  Next, we try to allocate as many free highmem page frames as to
load all of the image data that had been in the highmem before the suspend
and we allocate so many free "normal" page frames that the total number of
allocated free pages (highmem and "normal") is equal to the size of the
image.  While doing this we have to make sure that there will be some extra
free "normal" and "safe" page frames for two lists of PBEs constructed
later.

Now, the image data are loaded, if possible, into their "original" page
frames.  The image data that cannot be written into their "original" page
frames are loaded into "safe" page frames and their "original" kernel
virtual addresses, as well as the addresses of the "safe" pages containing
their copies, are stored in one of two lists of PBEs.

One list of PBEs is for the copies of "normal" suspend pages (ie.  "normal"
pages that were saveable during the suspend) and it is used in the same way
as previously (ie.  by the architecture-dependent parts of swsusp).  The
other list of PBEs is for the copies of highmem suspend pages.  The pages
in this list are restored (in a reversible way) right before the
arch-dependent code is called.

Rafael J. Wysocki [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:34:07 +0000]
[PATCH] swsusp: use partition device and offset to identify swap areas

The Linux kernel handles swap files almost in the same way as it handles swap
partitions and there are only two differences between these two types of swap
areas:

(1) swap files need not be contiguous,

(2) the header of a swap file is not in the first block of the partition
    that holds it.  From the swsusp's point of view (1) is not a problem,
    because it is already taken care of by the swap-handling code, but (2) has
    to be taken into consideration.

In principle the location of a swap file's header may be determined with the
help of appropriate filesystem driver.  Unfortunately, however, it requires
the filesystem holding the swap file to be mounted, and if this filesystem is
journaled, it cannot be mounted during a resume from disk.  For this reason we
need some other means by which swap areas can be identified.

For example, to identify a swap area we can use the partition that holds the
area and the offset from the beginning of this partition at which the swap
header is located.

The following patch allows swsusp to identify swap areas this way.  It changes
swap_type_of() so that it takes an additional argument representing an offset
of the swap header within the partition represented by its first argument.

suspend knows these as "platform method").  These are needed on many

steps or let my hp nx5000 recognise the correct ac_adapter state after

It also ensures on many machines, that changed hardware (unplugged AC

[PATCH] avr32: fixup kprobes preemption handling

While working on SH kprobes, I noticed that avr32 got the preemption
handling wrong in the no probe case.  The idea is that upon entry of
kprobe_handler() preemption is disabled outright across the life of the
kprobe, only to be re-enabled in post_kprobe_handler().

However, in the event that the probe is never activated, there's never any
chance of hitting the post probe handler, which allows for the current
avr32 implementation to disable preemption indefinitely, as it's currently
missing a re-enable when no probe is activated.

[PATCH] radix-tree: RCU lockless readside

Make radix tree lookups safe to be performed without locks.  Readers are
protected against nodes being deleted by using RCU based freeing.  Readers
are protected against new node insertion by using memory barriers to ensure
the node itself will be properly written before it is visible in the radix
tree.

Each radix tree node keeps a record of their height (above leaf nodes).
This height does not change after insertion -- when the radix tree is
extended, higher nodes are only inserted in the top.  So a lookup can take
the pointer to what is *now* the root node, and traverse down it even if
the tree is concurrently extended and this node becomes a subtree of a new
root.

"Direct" pointers (tree height of 0, where root->rnode points directly to
the data item) are handled by using the low bit of the pointer to signal
whether rnode is a direct pointer or a pointer to a radix tree node.

When a reader wants to traverse the next branch, they will take a copy of
the pointer.  This pointer will be either NULL (and the branch is empty) or
non-NULL (and will point to a valid node).

14 years ago[PATCH] slab: better fallback allocation behavior
Christoph Lameter [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:33:29 +0000]
[PATCH] slab: better fallback allocation behavior

Currently we simply attempt to allocate from all allowed nodes using
GFP_THISNODE.  However, GFP_THISNODE does not do reclaim (it wont do any at
all if the recent GFP_THISNODE patch is accepted).  If we truly run out of
memory in the whole system then fallback_alloc may return NULL although
memory may still be available if we would perform more thorough reclaim.

This patch changes fallback_alloc() so that we first only inspect all the
per node queues for available slabs.  If we find any then we allocate from
those.  This avoids slab fragmentation by first getting rid of all partial
allocated slabs on every node before allocating new memory.

If we cannot satisfy the allocation from any per node queue then we extend
a slab.  We now call into the page allocator without specifying
GFP_THISNODE.  The page allocator will then implement its own fallback (in
the given cpuset context), perform necessary reclaim (again considering not
a single node but the whole set of allowed nodes) and then return pages for
a new slab.

We identify from which node the pages were allocated and then insert the
pages into the corresponding per node structure.  In order to do so we need
to modify cache_grow() to take a parameter that specifies the new slab.
kmem_getpages() can no longer set the GFP_THISNODE flag since we need to be
able to use kmem_getpage to allocate from an arbitrary node.  GFP_THISNODE
needs to be specified when calling cache_grow().

One key advantage is that the decision from which node to allocate new
memory is removed from slab fallback processing.  The patch allows to go
back to use of the page allocators fallback/reclaim logic.

14 years ago[PATCH] GFP_THISNODE must not trigger global reclaim
Christoph Lameter [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:33:26 +0000]
[PATCH] GFP_THISNODE must not trigger global reclaim

The intent of GFP_THISNODE is to make sure that an allocation occurs on a
particular node.  If this is not possible then NULL needs to be returned so
that the caller can choose what to do next on its own (the slab allocator
depends on that).

However, GFP_THISNODE currently triggers reclaim before returning a failure
(GFP_THISNODE means GFP_NORETRY is set).  If we have over allocated a node
then we will currently do some reclaim before returning NULL.  The caller
may want memory from other nodes before reclaim should be triggered.  (If
the caller wants reclaim then he can directly use __GFP_THISNODE instead).

There is no flag to avoid reclaim in the page allocator and adding yet
another GFP_xx flag would be difficult given that we are out of available
flags.

So just compare and see if all bits for GFP_THISNODE (__GFP_THISNODE,
__GFP_NORETRY and __GFP_NOWARN) are set.  If so then we return NULL before
waking up kswapd.

14 years ago[PATCH] slab: fix two issues in kmalloc_node / __cache_alloc_node
Christoph Lameter [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:33:24 +0000]
[PATCH] slab: fix two issues in kmalloc_node / __cache_alloc_node

This addresses two issues:

1. Kmalloc_node() may intermittently return NULL if we are allocating
   from the current node and are unable to obtain memory for the current
   node from the page allocator.  This is because we call ___cache_alloc()
   if nodeid == numa_node_id() and ____cache_alloc is not able to fallback
   to other nodes.

   This was introduced in the 2.6.19 development cycle.  <= 2.6.18 in
   that case does not do a restricted allocation and blindly trusts the
   page allocator to have given us memory from the indicated node.  It
   inserts the page regardless of the node it came from into the queues for
   the current node.

2. If kmalloc_node() is used on a node that has not been bootstrapped
   yet then we may try to pass an invalid node number to
   ____cache_alloc_node() triggering a BUG().

   Change the function to call fallback_alloc() instead.  Only call
   fallback_alloc() if we are allowed to fallback at all.  The need to
   handle a node not bootstrapped yet also first surfaced in the 2.6.19
   cycle.

Update the comments since they were still describing the old kmalloc_node
from 2.6.12.

14 years ago[PATCH] reject corrupt swapfiles earlier
Eric Sandeen [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:33:06 +0000]
[PATCH] reject corrupt swapfiles earlier

The fsfuzzer found this; with a corrupt small swapfile that claims to have
many pages:

  [root]# file swap.741.img
  swap.741.img: Linux/i386 swap file (new style) 1 (4K pages) size 1040191487 pages
  [root]# ls -l swap.741.img
  -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 16777216 Nov 22 05:18 swap.741.img

sys_swapon() will try to vmalloc all those pages, and -then- check to see if
the file is actually that large:

                if (!(p->swap_map = vmalloc(maxpages * sizeof(short)))) {
  <snip>
        if (swapfilesize && maxpages > swapfilesize) {
                printk(KERN_WARNING
                       "Swap area shorter than signature indicates\n");

It seems to me that it would make more sense to move this test up before
the vmalloc, with the other checks, to avoid the OOM-killer in this
situation...

14 years ago[PATCH] silence unused pgdat warning from alloc_bootmem_node and friends
Andy Whitcroft [Thu, 7 Dec 2006 04:33:04 +0000]
[PATCH] silence unused pgdat warning from alloc_bootmem_node and friends

x86 NUMA systems only define bootmem for node 0.  alloc_bootmem_node() and
friends therefore ignore the passed pgdat and use NODE_DATA(0) in all
cases.  This leads to the following warnings as we are not using the passed
parameter:

  .../mm/page_alloc.c: In function 'zone_wait_table_init':
  .../mm/page_alloc.c:2259: warning: unused variable 'pgdat'

One option would be to define all variables used with these macros
__attribute__ ((unused)), but this would leave us exposed should these
become genuinely unused.

The key here is that we _are_ using the value, we ignore it but that is a
deliberate action.  This patch adds a nested local variable within the
alloc_bootmem_node helper to which the pgdat parameter is assigned making
it 'used'.  The nested local is marked __attribute__ ((unused)) to silence
this same warning for it.

14 years ago[PATCH] numa node ids are int, page_to_nid and zone_to_nid should return int

[PATCH] numa node ids are int, page_to_nid and zone_to_nid should return int

NUMA node ids are passed as either int or unsigned int almost exclusivly
page_to_nid and zone_to_nid both return unsigned long.  This is a throw
back to when page_to_nid was a #define and was thus exposing the real type
of the page flags field.

In addition to fixing up the definitions of page_to_nid and zone_to_nid I
audited the users of these functions identifying the following incorrect
uses:

1) mm/page_alloc.c show_node() -- printk dumping the node id,
2) include/asm-ia64/pgalloc.h pgtable_quicklist_free() -- comparison
   against numa_node_id() which returns an int from cpu_to_node(), and
3) mm/mpolicy.c check_pte_range -- used as an index in node_isset which
   uses bit_set which in generic code takes an int.

[PATCH] add numa node information to struct device

For node-aware skb allocations we need information about the node in struct
net_device or struct device.  Davem suggested to put it into struct device
which this patch does.

In particular:

 - struct device gets a new int numa_node member if CONFIG_NUMA is set
 - there are two new helpers, dev_to_node and set_dev_node to
   transparently deal with the non-numa case
 - for pci devices the node-info is set to the value we get from
   pcibus_to_node.

Note that for some architectures pcibus_to_node doesn't work yet at the time
we call it currently.  This is harmless and will just mean skb allocations
aren't node-local on this architectures until the implementation of
pcibus_to_node on these architectures have been updated (There are patches for
x86 and x86_64 floating around)
