[PATCH] Fix BCM1480 doubled process accounting times.

Running a UP kernel on a bcm1480 board, I get nonsensical timing
results, like this:
release@unknown:~/tmp$ time ./a.out
real    0m22.906s
user    0m45.792s
sys     0m0.010s
According to my watch, this program took 23 seconds to run, so the real
time clock is OK.  It is process accounting that is broken.

I tracked this down to a problem with the function
bcm1480_timer_interrupt in the file sibyte/bcm1480/time.c.  This
function calls ll_timer_interrupt for cpu0, and ll_local_timer_interrupt
for all cpus.  However, both of these functions do process accounting.
Thus processes running on cpu0 end up with doubled times.  This is very
obvious in a UP kernel where all processes run on cpu0.

The correct way to do this is to only call ll_local_timer interrupt if
this is not cpu0.  This can be seen in the mips-board/generic/time.c
file, and also in the sibyte/sb1250/time.c file, both of which handle
this correctly.  I fixed the bcm1480/time.c file by copying over the
correct code from the sb1250/time.c file.

With this fix, I now get sensible results.

[PATCH] run_posix_cpu_timers: remove a bogus BUG_ON()

do_exit() clears ->it_##clock##_expires, but nothing prevents
another cpu to attach the timer to exiting process after that.
arm_timer() tries to protect against this race, but the check

After exit_notify() does 'write_unlock_irq(&tasklist_lock)' and
before do_exit() calls 'schedule() local timer interrupt can find
tsk->exit_state != 0. If that state was EXIT_DEAD (or another cpu

At this moment exiting task has no pending cpu timers, they were
cleanuped in __exit_signal()->posix_cpu_timers_exit{,_group}(),
so we can just return from irq.

[PATCH] tmpfs: time granularity fix for [acm]time going backwards

building packages - occasionally, and seemingly at random, make decided to
rebuild a target. However, only on tmpfs.

A file would be created, and if checked, it had a sub-second timestamp.
However, after an utimes related call where sub-seconds should be set, they
were zeroed instead. In the case that a file was created, and utimes(...,NULL)
was used on it in the same second, the timestamp on the file moved backwards.

After some digging, I found that this was being caused by tmpfs not having a
time granularity set, thus inheriting the default 1 second granularity.

Hugh adds: yes, we missed tmpfs when the s_time_gran mods went into 2.6.11.
Unfortunately, the granularity of CURRENT_TIME, often used in filesystems,
does not match the default granularity set by alloc_super.  A few more such
discrepancies have been found, but this is the most important to fix now.

IMHO the current fix to the problem (in_flight underflow in reno)
is incorrect.  it treats the symptons but ignores the problem. the
problem is timing out packets other than the head packet when we
don't have sack. i try to explain (sorry if explaining the obvious).

with sack, scanning the retransmit queue for timed out packets is
fine because we know which packets in our retransmit queue have been
acked by the receiver.

without sack, we know only how many packets in our retransmit queue the
receiver has acknowledged, but no idea which packets.

think of a "typical" slow-start overshoot case, where for example
every third packet in a window get lost because a router buffer gets
full.

with sack, we check for timeouts on those every third packet (as the
rest have been sacked). the packet counting works out and if there
is no reordering, we'll retransmit exactly the packets that were
lost.

without sack, however, we check for timeout on every packet and end up
retransmitting consecutive packets in the retransmit queue. in our
slow-start example, 2/3 of those retransmissions are unnecessary. these
unnecessary retransmissions eat the congestion window and evetually
prevent fast recovery from continuing, if enough packets were lost.

[PATCH] Fix for the PPTP hangs that have been reported

People have been reporting that PPP connections over ptys, such as
used with PPTP, will hang randomly when transferring large amounts of
data, for instance in http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6530.
I have managed to reproduce the problem, and the patch below fixes the
actual cause.

The problem is not in fact in ppp_async.c but in n_tty.c.  What
happens is that when pptp reads from the pty, we call read_chan() in
drivers/char/n_tty.c on the master side of the pty.  That copies all
the characters out of its buffer to userspace and then calls
check_unthrottle(), which calls the pty unthrottle routine, which
calls tty_wakeup on the slave side, which calls ppp_asynctty_wakeup,
which calls tasklet_schedule.  So far so good.  Since we are in
process context, the tasklet runs immediately and calls
ppp_async_process(), which calls ppp_async_push, which calls the
tty->driver->write function to send some more output.

However, tty->driver->write() returns zero, because the master
tty->receive_room is still zero.  We haven't returned from
check_unthrottle() yet, and read_chan() only updates tty->receive_room
_after_ calling check_unthrottle.  That means that the driver->write
call in ppp_async_process() returns 0.  That would be fine if we were
going to get a subsequent wakeup call, but we aren't (we just had it,
and the buffer is now empty).

The solution is for n_tty.c to update tty->receive_room _before_
calling the driver unthrottle routine.  The patch below does this.
With this patch I was able to transfer a 900MB file over a PPTP
connection (taking about 25 minutes), whereas without the patch the
connection would always stall in under a minute.

According to Intel ICH spec, there are several rules that Base Address
should be programmed before IOSE  (PCICMD register ) enabled.

For example ICH7:

12.1.3  SATA : the base address register for the bus master register
               should be programmed before this bit is set.

11.1.3:  PCICMD (USB): The base address register for USB should be
                       programmed before this bit is set.
....

To make sure kernel code follow this rule , and prevent unnecessary
confusion. I proposal this patch.

[PATCH] Further alterations for memory barrier document

From: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com>

Apply some alterations to the memory barrier document that I worked out
with Paul McKenney of IBM, plus some of the alterations suggested by Alan
Stern.

The following changes were made:

 (*) One of the examples given for what can happen with overlapping memory
     barriers was wrong.

 (*) The description of general memory barriers said that a general barrier is
     a combination of a read barrier and a write barrier.  This isn't entirely
     true: it implies both, but is more than a combination of both.

 (*) The first example in the "SMP Barrier Pairing" section was wrong: the
     loads around the read barrier need to touch the memory locations in the
     opposite order to the stores around the write barrier.

 (*) Added a note to make explicit that the loads should be in reverse order to
     the stores.

 (*) Adjusted the diagrams in the "Examples Of Memory Barrier Sequences"
     section to make them clearer.  Added a couple of diagrams to make it more
     clear as to how it could go wrong without the barrier.

 (*) Added a section on memory speculation.

 (*) Dropped any references to memory allocation routines doing memory
     barriers.  They may do sometimes, but it can't be relied on.  This may be
     worthy of further documentation later.

 (*) Made the fact that a LOCK followed by an UNLOCK should not be considered a
     full memory barrier more explicit and gave an example.
