usbcore: add configuration_string to attribute group

This patch (as737b) does a very small cleanup of core/sysfs.c by adding
the configuration_string attribute file to the existing attribute group
instead of treating it separately.  It doesn't need this separate
treatment because unlike the other device string attributes, it changes

[PATCH] EISA bus MODALIAS attributes support

Add modalias attribute support for the almost forgotten now EISA bus and

The modalias entry looks like (for an 3c509 NIC):

 eisa:sTCM5093

and the in-module alias like:

 eisa:sTCM5093*

The patch moves struct eisa_device_id declaration from include/linux/eisa.h
to include/linux/mod_devicetable.h (so that the former now #includes the
latter), adds proper MODULE_DEVICE_TABLE(eisa, ...) statements for all
drivers with EISA IDs I found (some drivers already have that DEVICE_TABLE
declared), and adds recognision of __mod_eisa_device_table to
scripts/mod/file2alias.c so that proper modules.alias will be generated.

There's no support for /lib/modules/$kver/modules.eisamap, as it's not used
by any existing tools, and because with in-kernel modalias mechanism those
maps are obsolete anyway.

The rationale for this patch is:

 a) to make EISA bus to act as other busses with modalias
    support, to unify driver loading

 b) to foget about EISA finally - with this patch, kernel

    how to choose the necessary drivers for this bus ;)

expire on demand" of nested multiple mounts, such as is found when mounting
an export list from a server, solving the problem cannot be avoided any
longer.

module but have not been able to find a satisfactory way to achieve it.

Jeff Dike [Wed, 27 Sep 2006 08:50:40 +0000 (01:50 -0700)]
[PATCH] uml: thread creation tidying

fork on UML has always somewhat subtle.  The underlying cause has been the
need to initialize a stack for the new process.  The only portable way to
initialize a new stack is to set it as the alternate signal stack and take a
signal.  The signal handler does whatever initialization is needed and jumps
back to the original stack, where the fork processing is finished.  The basic
context switching mechanism is a jmp_buf for each process.  You switch to a
new process by longjmping to its jmp_buf.

Now that UML has its own implementation of setjmp and longjmp, and I can poke
around inside a jmp_buf without fear that libc will change the structure, a
much simpler mechanism is possible.  The jmpbuf can simply be initialized by
hand.

This eliminates -
the need to set up and remove the alternate signal stack
sending and handling a signal
the signal blocking needed around the stack switching, since
there is no stack switching
setting up the jmp_buf needed to jump back to the original
stack after the new one is set up

In addition, since jmp_buf is now defined by UML, and not by libc, it can be
embedded in the thread struct.  This makes it unnecessary to have it exist on
the stack, where it used to be.  It also simplifies interfaces, since the
switch jmp_buf used to be a void * inside the thread struct, and functions
which took it as an argument needed to define a jmp_buf variable and assign it
from the void *.

SYSERROR(tmp, "futex");
printf("WAITED: %d\n", tmp);

tmp = shmdt(f);
SYSERROR(tmp, "shmdt");

for the number at the start to change.  The program will increment that number

Christoph Lameter [Wed, 27 Sep 2006 08:50:08 +0000 (01:50 -0700)]
[PATCH] GFP_THISNODE for the slab allocator

This patch insures that the slab node lists in the NUMA case only contain
slabs that belong to that specific node.  All slab allocations use
GFP_THISNODE when calling into the page allocator.  If an allocation fails
then we fall back in the slab allocator according to the zonelists appropriate
for a certain context.

This allows a replication of the behavior of alloc_pages and alloc_pages node
in the slab layer.

Currently allocations requested from the page allocator may be redirected via
cpusets to other nodes.  This results in remote pages on nodelists and that in
turn results in interrupt latency issues during cache draining.  Plus the slab
is handing out memory as local when it is really remote.

Fallback for slab memory allocations will occur within the slab allocator and
not in the page allocator.  This is necessary in order to be able to use the
existing pools of objects on the nodes that we fall back to before adding more
pages to a slab.

The fallback function insures that the nodes we fall back to obey cpuset
restrictions of the current context.  We do not allocate objects from outside
of the current cpuset context like before.

Note that the implementation of locality constraints within the slab allocator
requires importing logic from the page allocator.  This is a mischmash that is
not that great.  Other allocators (uncached allocator, vmalloc, huge pages)
face similar problems and have similar minimal reimplementations of the basic
fallback logic of the page allocator.  There is another way of implementing a
slab by avoiding per node lists (see modular slab) but this wont work within
the existing slab.

V1->V2:
- Use NUMA_BUILD to avoid #ifdef CONFIG_NUMA

    in one line, rahter than two, then do it in one. I tried to format
    the temperature stuff for easy reading.

Change show_free_areas() to not print lines for empty zones.  If no zone
output is printed, the zone is empty.  This reduces the number of lines
dumped to the console in sysrq on a large system by several thousand lines.

Change the zone temperature printouts to use one line per CPU instead of
two lines (one hot, one cold).  On a 1024 CPU, 1024 node system, this
reduces the console output by over a million lines of output.

While this is a bigger problem on large NUMA systems, it is also applicable
to smaller desktop sized and mid range NUMA systems.

[PATCH] slab: fix kmalloc_node applying memory policies if nodeid == numa_node_id()

kmalloc_node() falls back to ___cache_alloc() under certain conditions and
at that point memory policies may be applied redirecting the allocation
away from the current node.  Therefore kmalloc_node(...,numa_node_id()) or
kmalloc_node(...,-1) may not return memory from the local node.

Fix this by doing the policy check in __cache_alloc() instead of
____cache_alloc().

This version here is a cleanup of Kiran's patch.

- Tested on ia64.
- Extra material removed.
- Consolidate the exit path if alternate_node_alloc() returned an object.

_page gets used twice in this macro which can cause subtle bugs.  Using
__page for the page_test_and_clear_dirty call doesn't work since it causes
yet another problem with the page_test_and_clear_dirty macro as well.

In order to avoid all these problems caused by macros it seems to be a good

Because of header file include order it's necessary to have a seperate

registered by the architecture.  However, when

Mel Gorman [Wed, 27 Sep 2006 08:49:43 +0000 (01:49 -0700)]
[PATCH] Introduce mechanism for registering active regions of memory

At a basic level, architectures define structures to record where active
ranges of page frames are located.  Once located, the code to calculate zone
sizes and holes in each architecture is very similar.  Some of this zone and
hole sizing code is difficult to read for no good reason.  This set of patches
eliminates the similar-looking architecture-specific code.

The patches introduce a mechanism where architectures register where the
active ranges of page frames are with add_active_range().  When all areas have
been discovered, free_area_init_nodes() is called to initialise the pgdat and
zones.  The zone sizes and holes are then calculated in an architecture
independent manner.

Patch 1 introduces the mechanism for registering and initialising PFN ranges
Patch 2 changes ppc to use the mechanism - 139 arch-specific LOC removed
Patch 3 changes x86 to use the mechanism - 136 arch-specific LOC removed
Patch 4 changes x86_64 to use the mechanism - 74 arch-specific LOC removed
Patch 5 changes ia64 to use the mechanism - 52 arch-specific LOC removed
Patch 6 accounts for mem_map as a memory hole as the pages are not reclaimable.
It adjusts the watermarks slightly

Tony Luck has successfully tested for ia64 on Itanium with tiger_defconfig,
gensparse_defconfig and defconfig.  Bob Picco has also tested and debugged on
IA64.  Jack Steiner successfully boot tested on a mammoth SGI IA64-based
machine.  These were on patches against 2.6.17-rc1 and release 3 of these
patches but there have been no ia64-changes since release 3.

There are differences in the zone sizes for x86_64 as the arch-specific code
for x86_64 accounts the kernel image and the starting mem_maps as memory holes
but the architecture-independent code accounts the memory as present.

The big benefit of this set of patches is a sizable reduction of
architecture-specific code, some of which is very hairy.  There should be a
greater reduction when other architectures use the same mechanisms for zone
and hole sizing but I lack the hardware to test on.

This patch:

Define the structure to represent an active range of page frames within a node
in an architecture independent manner.  Architectures are expected to register
active ranges of PFNs using add_active_range(nid, start_pfn, end_pfn) and call
free_area_init_nodes() passing the PFNs of the end of each zone.
