- net/sunrpc/svc.c uses highest_possible_node_id()

- include/linux/nodemask.h says highest_possible_node_id() is
  out-of-line #if MAX_NUMNODES > 1

- lib/Makefile: lib-$(CONFIG_SMP) += cpumask.o
  CONFIG_ARCH_DISCONTIGMEM_ENABLE=y, CONFIG_SMP=n, CONFIG_SUNRPC=y

-> highest_possible_node_id() is used in net/sunrpc/svc.c
   CONFIG_NODES_SHIFT defined and > 0

-> include/linux/numa.h: MAX_NUMNODES > 1

-> compile error

The bug is not present on architectures where ARCH_DISCONTIGMEM_ENABLE
depends on NUMA (but m32r isn't the only affected architecture).

b) mixing nfserr_.... with -EOPNOTSUPP is

nfsd4_path() does both; caller expects to get NFS protocol error out it if
anything goes wrong, but if it does we either do not notice (see (a)) or get

return a pointer in case of success.

was cause of strange fail message of memory hotplug like "ACPI: add_memory
failed".  Memory is recognized by early boot code with EFI/E820.

But, if DSDT describes memory devices for them, then hot-add code is called
for already recognized memory, and it shows fail messages with -EEXIST.
So, sys admin will misunderstand this message as something wrong by it.

This patch avoids them by preventing redundant hot-add call until
completion of driver initialization.

[PATCH] uml: use DEFCONFIG_LIST to avoid reading host's config

This should make sure that, for UML, host's configuration files are not
considered, which avoids various pains to the user.  Our dependency are such
that the obtained Kconfig will be valid and will lead to successful
compilation - however they cannot prevent an user from disabling any boot
device, and if an option is not set in the read .config (say
/boot/config-XXX), with make menuconfig ARCH=um, it is not set.  This always
disables UBD and all console I/O channels, which leads to non-working UML
kernels, so this bothers users - especially now, since it will happen on
almost every machine (/boot/config-`uname -r` exists almost on every machine).
 It can be workarounded with make defconfig ARCH=um, but it is non-obvious and
can be avoided, so please _do_ merge this patch.

Given the existence of options, it could be interesting to implement
(additionally) "option required" - with it, Kconfig will refuse reading a
.config file (from wherever it comes) if the given option is not set.  With
this, one could mark with it the option characteristic of the given
architecture (it was an old proposal of Roman Zippel, when I pointed out our
problem):

config UML
option required
default y

However this should be further discussed:
*) for x86, it must support constructs like:

==arch/i386/Kconfig==
config 64BIT
option required
default n
where Kconfig must require that CONFIG_64BIT is disabled or not present in the
read .config.

*) do we want to do such checks only for the starting defconfig or also for
   .config? Which leads to:
*) I may want to port a x86_64 .config to x86 and viceversa, or even among more
   different archs. Should that be allowed, and in which measure (the user may
   force skipping the check for a .config or it is only given a warning by
   default)?

The blk_* congestion functions are retained, as wrappers around the core

When direct-io falls back to buffered write, it will just leave the dirty data
floating about in pagecache, pending regular writeback.

But normal direct-io semantics are that IO is synchronous, and that it leaves

So change the fallback-to-buffered-write code to sync the file region and to

(This patch depends on fixes in patch 9 to follow.)

Although skb->len should not be set when working with linear skbuffs,
the skb->tail pointer maintained by skb_put/skb_trim is not relevant
to what happens when the skb_fill_page_desc function is called.  This
issue was raised without comment in linux-kernel and netdev earlier
this month:

  http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel/446474/
  http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.network/45444/

So until there is something analogous to skb_put that works for
zero-copy write skbuffs, we will do what the other callers of
skb_fill_page_desc are doing.
