2009-09-22hwmon: applesmc: restore accelerometer and keyboard backlight on resumeHenrik Rydberg
On resume from suspend, the driver currently resets the logical state as if it was brought up from halt. This patch uses the dev_pm_ops.resume/restore methods to synchronize the hardware with the memorized logical state, in effect bringing back the accelerometer and backlight to the state prior to suspend. Works for both suspend to ram and hibernation. The patch has zero effect on the running state.

2009-09-22flex_array: introduce DEFINE_FLEX_ARRAYDavid Rientjes
FLEX_ARRAY_INIT(element_size, total_nr_elements) cannot determine if either parameter is valid, so flex arrays which are statically allocated with this interface can easily become corrupted or reference beyond its allocated memory. This removes FLEX_ARRAY_INIT() as a struct flex_array initializer since no initializer may perform the required checking. Instead, the array is now defined with a new interface: DEFINE_FLEX_ARRAY(name, element_size, total_nr_elements) This may be prefixed with `static' for file scope. This interface includes compile-time checking of the parameters to ensure they are valid. Since the validity of both element_size and total_nr_elements depend on FLEX_ARRAY_BASE_SIZE and FLEX_ARRAY_PART_SIZE, the kernel build will fail if either of these predefined values changes such that the array parameters are no longer valid. Since BUILD_BUG_ON() requires compile time constants, several of the static inline functions that were once local to lib/flex_array.c had to be moved to include/linux/flex_array.h.

2009-09-22flex_array: add flex_array_shrink functionDavid Rientjes
Add a new function to the flex_array API: int flex_array_shrink(struct flex_array *fa) This function will free all unused second-level pages. Since elements are now poisoned if they are not allocated with __GFP_ZERO, it's possible to identify parts that consist solely of unused elements. flex_array_shrink() returns the number of pages freed. Signed-off-by: David Rientjes <rientjes@google.com> Cc: Dave Hansen <dave@linux.vnet.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2009-09-22flex_array: poison free elementsDavid Rientjes
Newly initialized flex_array's and/or flex_array_part's are now poisoned with a new poison value, FLEX_ARRAY_FREE. It's value is similar to POISON_FREE used in the various slab allocators, but is different to distinguish between flex array's poisoned kmem and slab allocator poisoned kmem. This will allow us to identify flex_array_part's that only contain free elements (and free them with an addition to the flex_array API). This could also be extended in the future to identify `get' uses on elements that have not been `put'. If __GFP_ZERO is passed for a part's gfp mask, the poisoning is avoided. These elements are considered to be in-use since they have been initialized.

2009-09-22flex_array: add flex_array_clear functionDavid Rientjes
Add a new function to the flex_array API: int flex_array_clear(struct flex_array *fa, unsigned int element_nr) This function will zero the element at element_nr in the flex_array. Although this is equivalent to using flex_array_put() and passing a pointer to zero'd memory, flex_array_clear() does not require such a pointer to memory that would most likely need to be allocated on the caller's stack which could be significantly large depending on element_size.

This also allows the F: entry to be put anywhere in a section, not just as the last entries in the section. And a couple of improvements: Don't alphabetically sort before outputting the matched scm, status, subsystem and web sections.

2009-09-22scripts/get_maintainer.pl: add --git-blameJoe Perches
Julia Lawall suggested that get_maintainers.pl should have the ability to include signatories of commits that are modified by a particular patch. Vegard Nossum did something similar once. http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/5/29/449 The modified script looks the commits for all lines in the patch, and includes the "-by:" signatories for those commits. It uses the same git-min-percent, git-max-maintainers, and git-min-signatures options. git-since is ignored. It can be used independently from the --git default, so ./scripts/get_maintainers.pl --nogit --git-blame <patch> or ./scripts/get_maintainers.pl --nogit --git-blame -f <file> is acceptable. If used with -f <file>, all lines/commits for the file are checked. --git-blame can be slow if used with -f <file> --git-blame does not work with -f <directory> Signed-off-by: Joe Perches <joe@perches.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

2009-09-22uml: fix order of pud and pmd_free()Roel Kluin
If pmd_alloc() fails we should only free the prior allocated pud, if pte_alloc_map() fails, we should free pmd as well.

2009-09-22cpuidle: menu governor: reduce latency on exitCorrado Zoccolo
Move the state residency accounting and statistics computation off the hot exit path. On exit, the need to recompute statistics is recorded, and new statistics will be computed when menu_select is called again. The expected effect is to reduce processor wakeup latency from sleep (C-states). We are speaking of few hundreds of cycles reduction out of a several microseconds latency (determined by the hardware transition), so it is difficult to measure.

2009-09-22cpuidle: fix the menu governor to boost IO performanceArjan van de Ven
Fix the menu idle governor which balances power savings, energy efficiency and performance impact. The reason for a reworked governor is that there have been serious performance issues reported with the existing code on Nehalem server systems. To show this I'm sure Andrew wants to see benchmark results: (benchmark is "fio", "no cstates" is using "idle=poll") no cstates current linux new algorithm 1 disk 107 Mb/s 85 Mb/s 105 Mb/s 2 disks 215 Mb/s 123 Mb/s 209 Mb/s 12 disks 590 Mb/s 320 Mb/s 585 Mb/s In various power benchmark measurements, no degredation was found by our measurement&diagnostics team. Obviously a small percentage more power was used in the "fio" benchmark, due to the much higher performance. While it would be a novel idea to describe the new algorithm in this commit message, I cheaped out and described it in comments in the code instead.
