[VLAN]: Fix hardware rx csum errors

Receiving VLAN packets over a device (without VLAN assist) that is
doing hardware checksumming (CHECKSUM_HW), causes errors because the
VLAN code forgets to adjust the hardware checksum.

Knut Petersen [Tue, 13 Dec 2005 06:17:19 +0000]
[PATCH] fbdev: fix switch to KD_TEXT, enhanced version

Every framebuffer driver relies on the assumption that the set_par()
function of the driver is called before drawing functions and other
functions dependent on the hardware state are executed.

Whenever you switch from X to a framebuffer console for the very first
time, there is a chance that a broken X system has _not_ set the mode to
KD_GRAPHICS, thus the vt and framebuffer code executes a screen redraw and
several other functions before a set_par() is executed.  This is believed
to be not a bug of linux but a bug of X/xdm.  At least some X releases used
by SuSE and Debian show this behaviour.

There was a 2nd case, but that has been fixed by Antonino Daplas on
10-dec-2005.

This patch allows drivers to set a flag to inform fbcon_switch() that they
prefer a set_par() call on every console switch, working around the
problems caused by the broken X releases.

The flag will be used by the next release of cyblafb and might help other
drivers that assume a hardware state different to the one used by X.

As the default behaviour does not change, this patch should be acceptable
to everybody.

[PATCH] i386/x86-64: Don't call change_page_attr with a spinlock held

It's illegal because it can sleep.

Use a two step lookup scheme instead.  First look up the vm_struct, then
change the direct mapping, then finally unmap it.  That's ok because nobody
can change the particular virtual address range as long as the vm_struct is
still in the global list.

Also added some LinuxDoc documentation to iounmap.

Nick Piggin points out that a few drivers play games with VM_IO (why?
who knows..) and thus a pfn-remapped area may not have that bit set even
if remap_pfn_range() set it originally.

So make it explicit in get_user_pages() that we don't follow VM_PFNMAP
pages, since pretty much by definition they do not have a "struct page"
associated with them.

Olaf Hering [Fri, 9 Dec 2005 18:12:10 +0000]
[PATCH] pcnet32: use MAC address from prom also on powerpc

The CSR contains garbage after a coldboot on RS/6000.
One some systems (like my 44p 270) the MAC address is all FF,
on others (like my B50) it is ff:ff:ff:fd:ff:6b.

It can eventually be fixed by loading pcnet32, set the interface
into the UP state, rmmod pcnet32 and load it again. But this worked
only on the 270.

Only netbooting after a cold start provides the correct MAC address
via prom and CSR. This makes it very unreliable.
I dont know why the MAC is stored in two different places. Remove
the special case for powerpc, which was added in early 2.4 development.

Hitting BUG_ON() in __alloc_bootmem_core() when there is no free page
available in the first node's memory.  For the case of kdump on PPC64
(Power 4 machine), the captured kernel is used two memory regions - memory
for TCE tables (tce-base and tce-size at top of RAM and reserved) and
captured kernel memory region (crashk_base and crashk_size).  Since we
reserve the memory for the first node, we should be returning from
__alloc_bootmem_core() to search for the next node (pg_dat).

Currently, find_next_zero_bit() is returning the n^th bit (eidx) when there
is no free page.  Then, test_bit() is failed since we set 0xff only for the
actual size initially (init_bootmem_core()) even though rounded up to one
page for bdata->node_bootmem_map.  We are hitting the BUG_ON after failing

[PATCH] ipmi: fix panic generator ID

The IPMI specifcation says the generator ID is 0x20, but that is for bits
7-1.  Bit 0 is set to specify it is a software event.  The correct value is
0x41.  Without this fix, panic events written into the System Event Log
appear to come from an "unknown" generator, rather than from the kernel.

[PATCH] inotify: add two inotify_add_watch flags

The below patch lets userspace have more control over the inodes that
inotify will watch.  It introduces two new flags.

        IN_ONLYDIR -- only watch the inode if it is a directory.
        This is needed to avoid the race that can occur when we want to be
        sure that we are watching a directory.

        IN_DONT_FOLLOW -- don't follow a symlink.  In combination
        with IN_ONLYDIR we can make sure that we don't watch the target of
        symlinks.

The issues the flags fix came up when writing the gnome-vfs inotify
backend.  Default behaviour is unchanged.

Matt Helsley [Mon, 12 Dec 2005 08:37:10 +0000]
[PATCH] Add timestamp field to process events

This adds a timestamp field to the events sent via the process event
connector.  The timestamp allows listeners to accurately account the
duration(s) between a process' events and offers strong means with which
to determine the order of events with respect to a given task while also
avoiding the addition of per-task data.

This alters the size and layout of the event structure and hence would
break compatibility if process events connector as it stands in 2.6.15-rc2
were released as a mainline kernel.

monotonicity. This patch adds a new function that returns a monotonic SMP-safe
timestamp with nanosecond resolution where available.

15 years ago[PATCH] Fix listxattr() for generic security attributes
Daniel Drake [Mon, 12 Dec 2005 08:37:08 +0000]
[PATCH] Fix listxattr() for generic security attributes

Commit f549d6c18c0e8e6cf1bf0e7a47acc1daf7e2cec1 introduced a generic
fallback for security xattrs, but appears to include a subtle bug.

Gentoo users with kernels with selinux compiled in, and coreutils compiled
with acl support, noticed that they could not copy files on tmpfs using
'cp'.

cp (compiled with acl support) copies the file, lists the extended
attributes on the old file, copies them all to the new file, and then
exits.  However the listxattr() calls were failing with this odd behaviour:

llistxattr("a.out", (nil), 0)           = 17
llistxattr("a.out", 0x7fffff8c6cb0, 17) = -1 ERANGE (Numerical result out of
range)

I believe this is a simple problem in the logic used to check the buffer
sizes; if the user sends a buffer the exact size of the data, then its ok
:)

This change solves the problem.

[PATCH] add rcu_barrier() synchronization point

This introduces a new interface - rcu_barrier() which waits until all
the RCUs queued until this call have been completed.

Reiser4 needs this, because we do more than just freeing memory object
in our RCU callback: we also remove it from the list hanging off
super-block.  This means, that before freeing reiser4-specific portion
of super-block (during umount) we have to wait until all pending RCU
callbacks are executed.

The only change of reiser4 made to the original patch, is exporting of
rcu_barrier().
