13 years agosysfs: move sysfs file poll implementation to sysfs_open_dirent
Tejun Heo [Thu, 20 Sep 2007 07:05:12 +0000]
sysfs: move sysfs file poll implementation to sysfs_open_dirent

Sysfs file poll implementation is scattered over sysfs and kobject.
Event numbering is done in sysfs_dirent but wait itself is done on
kobject.  This not only unecessarily bloats both kobject and
sysfs_dirent but is also buggy - if a sysfs_dirent is removed while
there still are pollers, the associaton betwen the kobject and
sysfs_dirent breaks and kobject may be freed with the pollers still
sleeping on it.

This patch moves whole poll implementation into sysfs_open_dirent.
Each time a sysfs_open_dirent is created, event number restarts from 1
and pollers sleep on sysfs_open_dirent.  As event sequence number is
meaningless without any open file and pollers should have open file
and thus sysfs_open_dirent, this ephemeral event counting works and is
a saner implementation.

This patch fixes the dnagling sleepers bug and reduces the sizes of
kobject and sysfs_dirent by one pointer.

sysfs: Simplify readdir.

At some point someone wrote sysfs_readdir to insert a cursor
into the list of sysfs_dirents to ensure that sysfs_readdir would
restart properly.  That works but it is complex code and tends
to be expensive.

The same effect can be achieved by keeping the sysfs_dirents in
inode order and using the inode number as the f_pos.  Then
when we restart we just have to find the first dirent whose inode
number is equal or greater then the last sysfs_dirent we attempted
to return.

Removing the sysfs directory cursor also allows the remove of
all of the mysterious checks for sysfs_type(sd) != 0.   Which
were nonbovious checks to see if a cursor was in a directory list.

tj: offset marker for EOF is changed from UINT_MAX to INT_MAX to avoid

Driver core: Make platform_device.id an int

While platform_device.id is a u32, platform_device_add() handles "-1"
as a special id value. This has potential for confusion and bugs.
Making it an int instead should prevent problems from happening in

13 years agosysdev: remove global sysdev drivers list
Akinobu Mita [Sun, 19 Aug 2007 07:51:14 +0000]
sysdev: remove global sysdev drivers list

No one uses sysdev_drivers. Because no one calls sysdev_driver_register
with NULL class.

And it is difficult to imagine that someone want to implement a global
sysdev driver which is called with all sys_device on any kind of
sysdev_class.

So this patch removes global sysdev_drivers list and update comments
for this change.

sysfs: Remove first pass at shadow directory support

While shadow directories appear to be a good idea, the current scheme
of controlling their creation and destruction outside of sysfs appears
to be a locking and maintenance nightmare in the face of sysfs
directories dynamically coming and going.  Which can now occur for
directories containing network devices when CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPRECATED is
not set.

This patch removes everything from the initial shadow directory support
that allowed the shadow directory creation to be controlled at a higher
level.  So except for a few bits of sysfs_rename_dir everything from
commit b592fcfe7f06c15ec11774b5be7ce0de3aa86e73 is now gone.

Valentine Barshak [Thu, 11 Oct 2007 19:09:25 +0000]
[POWERPC] Add legacy serial support for OPB with flattened device tree

Currently find_legacy_serial_ports() can find no serial ports on the
OPB with flattened device tree.  Thus no legacy boot console can be
initialized.  Just the early udbg console works, which is initialized
with udbg_init_44x_as1 on the UART's physical address specified in
kernel config.  This happens because we look for ns16750 serial
devices only and expect opb node to have a device type property.  This
patch makes it look for ns16550-compatible devices and use
of_device_is_compatible() for opb in case device type is not
specified.

13 years ago[POWERPC] Use 1TB segments
Paul Mackerras [Thu, 11 Oct 2007 10:37:10 +0000]
[POWERPC] Use 1TB segments

This makes the kernel use 1TB segments for all kernel mappings and for
user addresses of 1TB and above, on machines which support them
(currently POWER5+, POWER6 and PA6T).

We detect that the machine supports 1TB segments by looking at the
ibm,processor-segment-sizes property in the device tree.

We don't currently use 1TB segments for user addresses < 1T, since
that would effectively prevent 32-bit processes from using huge pages
unless we also had a way to revert to using 256MB segments.  That
would be possible but would involve extra complications (such as
keeping track of which segment size was used when HPTEs were inserted)
and is not addressed here.

Parts of this patch were originally written by Ben Herrenschmidt.
