Magnus Damm [Mon, 10 Jul 2006 11:44:09 +0000]
[PATCH] release_firmware() fixes

Use release_firmware() to free requested resources.

According to Documentation/firmware_class/README the request_firmware()
call should be followed by a release_firmware().  Some drivers do not
however free the firmware previously allocated with request_firmware().
This patch tries to fix this by making sure that release_firmware() is used
as expected.

[PATCH] lockdep: core, reduce per-lock class-cache size

lockdep_map is embedded into every lock, which blows up data structure
sizes all around the kernel.  Reduce the class-cache to be for the default
class only - that is used in 99.9% of the cases and even if we dont have a
class cached, the lookup in the class-hash is lockless.

This change reduces the per-lock dep_map overhead by 56 bytes on 64-bit
platforms and by 28 bytes on 32-bit platforms.

Peter Oberparleiter [Mon, 10 Jul 2006 11:44:00 +0000]
[PATCH] partitions: let partitions inherit policy from disk

Change the partition code in fs/partitions/check.c to initialize a newly
detected partition's policy field with that of the containing block device
(see patch below).

My reasoning is that function set_disk_ro() in block/genhd.c modifies the
policy field (read-only indicator) of a disk and all contained partitions.
When a partition is detected after the call to set_disk_ro(), the policy
field of this partition will currently not inherit the disk's policy field.
 This behavior poses a problem in cases where a block device can be
'logically de- and reactivated' like e.g.  the s390 DASD driver because
partition detection may run after the policy field has been modified.

Hisashi Hifumi [Mon, 10 Jul 2006 11:43:56 +0000]
[PATCH] reiserfs: fix journaling issue regarding fsync()

When write() extends a file(i_size is increased) and fsync() is called,
change of inode must be written to journaling area through fsync().
But,currently the i_trans_id is not correctly updated when i_size is
increased.  So fsync() does not kick the journal writer.

Reiserfs_file_write() already updates the transaction when blocks are
allocated, but the case when i_size increases and new blocks are not added
is not correctly treated.

Following patch fix this bug.

Peter Williams [Mon, 10 Jul 2006 11:43:51 +0000]
[PATCH] sched: fix bug in __migrate_task()

Problem:

In the function __migrate_task(), deactivate_task() followed by
activate_task() is used to move the task from one run queue to
another.  This has two undesirable effects:

1. The task's priority is recalculated. (Nowhere else in the
scheduler code is the priority recalculated for a change of CPU.)

2. The task's time stamp is set to the current time.  At the very least,
this makes the adjustment of the time stamp before the call to
deactivate_task() redundant but I believe the problem is more serious
as the time stamp now holds the time of the queue change instead of
the time at which the task was woken.  In addition, unless dest_rq is
the same queue as "current" is on the time stamp could be inaccurate
due to inter CPU drift.

Solution:

Replace the call to activate_task() with one to __activate_task().

i386: improve and correct inline asm memory constraints

Use "+m" rather than a combination of "=m" and "m" for improved clarity
and consistency.

This also fixes some inlines that incorrectly didn't tell the compiler
that they read the old value at all, potentially causing the compiler to
generate bogus code.  It appear that all of those potential bugs were

[PATCH] libata: reimplement controller-wide PM

Reimplement controller-wide PM.  ata_host_set_suspend/resume() are
defined to suspend and resume a host_set.  While suspended, EHs for
all ports in the host_set are pegged using ATA_FLAG_SUSPENDED and
frozen.

Because SCSI device hotplug is done asynchronously against the rest of
libata EH and the same mutex is used when adding new device, suspend
cannot wait for hotplug to complete.  So, if SCSI device hotplug is in
progress, suspend fails with -EBUSY.

In most cases, host_set resume is followed by device resume.  As each
resume operation requires a reset, a single host_set-wide resume
operation may result in multiple resets.  To avoid this, resume waits
upto 1 second giving PM to request resume for devices.

[PATCH] libata: reimplement per-dev PM

Reimplement per-dev PM.  The original implementation directly put the
device into suspended mode and didn't synchronize w/ EH operations
including hotplug.  This patch reimplements ata_scsi_device_suspend()
and ata_scsi_device_resume() such that they request EH to perform the
respective operations.  Both functions synchronize with hotplug such
that it doesn't operate on detached devices.

Suspend waits for completion but resume just issues request and
returns.  This allows parallel wake up of devices and thus speeds up
system resume.

Due to sdev detach synchronization, it's not feasible to separate out
EH requesting from sdev handling; thus, ata_device_suspend/resume()
are removed and everything is implemented in the respective
libata-scsi functions.

Tejun Heo [Mon, 3 Jul 2006 07:07:26 +0000]
[PATCH] libata: implement PM EH actions

Implement two PM per-dev EH actions - ATA_EH_SUSPEND and
ATA_EH_RESUME.  Each action puts the target device into suspended mode
and resumes from it respectively.

Once a device is put to suspended mode, no EH operations other than
RESUME is allowed on the device.  The device will stay suspended till
it gets resumed and thus reset and revalidated.  To implement this, a
new device state helper - ata_dev_ready() - is implemented and used in
EH action implementations to make them operate only on attached &
running devices.

If all possible devices on a port are suspended, reset is skipped too.
This prevents spurious events including hotplug events from disrupting
suspended devices.

The names of predefined debounce timing parameters didn't exactly

selection helper sata_ehc_deb_timing() which uses EHI_HOTPLUGGED to

parameter selection accurate.  e.g. user scan resumes link but normal
deb param is used instead of hotplug param.

[PATCH] libata: implement ATA_EHI_RESUME_LINK

Implement ATA_EHI_RESUME_LINK, which indicates that the link needs to
be resumed.  This used to be implied by ATA_EHI_HOTPLUGGED.  However,
hotplug isn't the only event which requires link resume and separating
this out allows other places to request link resume.  This
differentiation also allows better debounce timing selection.

This patch converts user scan to use ATA_EHI_RESUME_LINK.

Tejun Heo [Sun, 2 Jul 2006 18:02:15 +0000]
[PATCH] libata: replace ap_lock w/ ap->lock in ata_scsi_error()

ap_lock was used because &ap->host_set->lock was too long and used a
lot.  Now that &ap->host_set->lock is replaced with ap->lock, there's
no reason to keep ap_lock.

[ed. note: that's not entirely true.  ap_lock is a local variable,
caching the results of a de-ref.  In theory, if the compiler is smart
enough, this patch is cosmetic.  However, since this is not a fast
path (it is the error path), this patch is nonetheless acceptable,
even though it _may_ introduce a performance regression.]

[PATCH] 8139too deadlock fix

> stack backtrace:

>  [<f9099d31>] rtl8139_start_xmit+0xd9/0xff [8139too]
>  [<c11ad5ea>] netpoll_send_skb+0x98/0xea

This seems to be a real deadlock...

So netpoll_send_skb takes the _xmit_lock, which is all nitty gritty
but then rtl8139_start_xmit comes around while that lock is taken, and
does

      spin_unlock_irq(&tp->lock);

which.. enables interrupts and softirqs; this is quite bad because the
xmit lock is taken in softirq context for the watchdog like this:
  [<c1200376>] _spin_lock+0x23/0x32
  [<c11af282>] dev_watchdog+0x14/0xb1
  [<c101dab2>] run_timer_softirq+0xf2/0x14a
  [<c101a691>] __do_softirq+0x55/0xb0
  [<c1004a8d>] do_softirq+0x58/0xbd

Which would deadlock now that the spin_unlock_irq() has enabled
irqs/softirqs while the _xmit_lock is still held.

The patch below turns this into a irqsave/irqrestore pair so that
interrupts don't get enabled unconditionally.

Ingo Molnar [Fri, 30 Jun 2006 09:25:06 +0000]
[PATCH] lock validator: fix ns83820.c irq-flags bug

Barry K. Nathan reported the following lockdep warning:

[  197.355612]  [<c0102d9d>] common_interrupt+0x25/0x2c

this is caused because the ns83820 driver re-enables irq flags
in hardirq context.

While legal in theory, in practice it should only be done if the
hardware is really old and has some very high overhead in its ISR.
(such as PIO IDE)

For modern hardware, running ISRs with irqs enabled is discouraged,
because 1) new hardware is fast enough to not cause latency problems
2) allowing the nesting of hardware interrupts only 'spreads out'
the handling of the current ISR, causing extra cachemisses that would
otherwise not happen. Furthermore, on architectures where ISRs share
the kernel stacks, enabling interrupts in ISRs introduces a much
higher kernel-stack-nesting and thus kernel-stack-overflow risk.
3) not managing irq-flags via the _irqsave / _irqrestore variants
is dangerous: it's easy to forget whether one function nests inside
another, and irq flags might be mismanaged.

In the few cases where re-enabling interrupts in an ISR is considered
useful (and unavoidable), it has to be taught to the lock validator
explicitly (because the lock validator needs the "no ISR ever enables
hardirqs" artificial simplification to keep the IRQ/softirq locking
dependencies manageable).

This teaching is done via the explicit use local_irq_enable_in_hardirq().
On a stock kernel this maps to local_irq_enable(). If the lock validator
is enabled then this does not enable interrupts.

Now, the analysis of drivers/net/ns83820.c's irq flags use: the
irq-enabling in irq context seems intentional, but i dont think it's
justified. Furthermore, the driver suffers from problem #3 above too,
in ns83820_tx_timeout() it disables irqs via local_irq_save(), but
then it calls do_tx_done() which does a spin_unlock_irq(),
re-enabling for a function that does not expect it! While currently
this bug seems harmless (only some debug printout seems to be
affected by it), it's nevertheless something to be fixed.

So this patch makes the ns83820 ISR irq-flags-safe, and cleans up
do_tx_done() use and locking to avoid the ns83820_tx_timeout() bug.

From: Arjan van de Ven <arjan@linux.intel.com>

  ns83820_mib_isr takes the misc_lock in IRQ context.  All other places that
  do this in the ISR already use _irqsave versions, make this consistent at
  least.  At some point in the future someone should audit the driver to see
  if all _irqsave's in the ISR can go away, this is generally an iffy/fragile
  proposition though; for now get it safe, simple and consistent.

From: Arjan van de Ven <arjan@linux.intel.com>

ok this is a real driver deadlock:

The ns83820 driver enabled interrupts (by unlocking the misc_lock with
_irq) while still holding the rx_info.lock, which is required to be irq
safe since it's used in the ISR like this:
                writel(1, dev->base + IER);
                spin_unlock_irq(&dev->misc_lock);
                kick_rx(ndev);
                spin_unlock_irq(&dev->rx_info.lock);

This is can cause a deadlock if an irq was pending at the first
spin_unlock_irq already, or if one would hit during kick_rx().
Simply remove the first _irq solves this

This patch adds the PCI_DEVICE macro to the pcnet32 driver.

This has been tested on my opteron with my "trident" adapter.

Don Fry modified it slightly and tested on ia32 and ppc64.

14 years ago[PATCH] ZyDAS ZD1211 USB-WLAN driver

[PATCH] ZyDAS ZD1211 USB-WLAN driver

There are 60+ USB wifi adapters available on the market based on the ZyDAS
ZD1211 chip.

Unlike the predecessor (ZD1201), ZD1211 does not have a hardware MAC, so most
data operations are coordinated by the device driver. The ZD1211 chip sits
alongside an RF transceiver which is also controlled by the driver. Our driver
currently supports 2 RF types, we know of one other available in a few marketed
products which we will be supporting soon.

Our driver also supports the newer revision of ZD1211, called ZD1211B. The
initialization and RF operations are slightly different for the new revision,
but the main difference is 802.11e support. Our driver does not support the
QoS features yet, but we think we know how to use them.

This driver is based on ZyDAS's own GPL driver available from www.zydas.com.tw.
ZyDAS engineers have been responsive and supportive of our efforts, so thumbs
up to them. Additionally, the firmware is redistributable and they have
provided device specs.

This driver has been written primarily by Ulrich Kunitz and myself. Graham
Gower, Greg KH, Remco and Bryan Rittmeyer have also contributed. The
developers of ieee80211 and softmac have made our lives so much easier- thanks!

We maintain a small info-page: http://zd1211.ath.cx/wiki/DriverRewrite

If there is enough time for review, we would like to aim for inclusion in
2.6.18. The driver works nicely as a STA, and can connect to both open and
encrypted networks (we are using software-based encryption for now). We will
work towards supporting more advanced features in the future (ad-hoc, master
mode, 802.11a, ...).
