2009-12-29firewire, ieee1394: update Kconfig helpStefan Richter
Update the Kconfig help texts of both stacks to encourage a general move from the older to the newer drivers. However, do not label ieee1394 as "Obsolete" yet, as the newer drivers have not been deployed as default stack in the majority of Linux distributions yet, and those who start doing so now may still want to install the old drivers as fallback for unforeseen issues. Since Linux 2.6.32, FireWire audio devices can be driven by the newer firewire driver stack too, hence remove an outdated comment about audio devices. Also remove comments about library versions since the 2nd generation of libraw1394 and libdc1394 is now in common use; details on library versions can be read at the wiki link from the help texts.

2009-12-15cs5535: add a generic clock event MFGPT driverAndres Salomon
This is based on the old code in arch/x86/kernel/mfgpt_32.c, but is modular and not Geode-specific. There's no reason why the clock event device needs to be registered so early at boot; the clockevent code is perfectly capable of dynamic switching.

2009-06-18LinuxPPS: core supportRodolfo Giometti
This patch adds the kernel side of the PPS support currently named "LinuxPPS". PPS means "pulse per second" and a PPS source is just a device which provides a high precision signal each second so that an application can use it to adjust system clock time. Common use is the combination of the NTPD as userland program with a GPS receiver as PPS source to obtain a wallclock-time with sub-millisecond synchronisation to UTC. To obtain this goal the userland programs shoud use the PPS API specification (RFC 2783 - Pulse-Per-Second API for UNIX-like Operating Systems, Version 1.0) which in part is implemented by this patch. It provides a set of chars devices, one per PPS source, which can be used to get the time signal. The RFC's functions can be implemented by accessing to these char devices.

Move x86 platform specific drivers from drivers/misc/ to a new home under drivers/platform/x86/. The community has been maintaining x86 vendor-specific platform specific drivers under /drivers/misc/ for a few years. The oldest ones started life under drivers/acpi. They moved out of drivers/acpi/ because they don't actually implement the ACPI specification, but either simply use ACPI, or implement vendor-specific ACPI extensions.

Add an empty drivers/gpio directory for gpiolib infrastructure and GPIO expanders. It will be populated by later patches. This won't be the only place to hold such gpio_chip code. Many external chips add a few GPIOs as secondary functionality (such as MFD drivers) and platform code frequently needs to closely integrate GPIO and IRQ support. This is placed *early* in the build/link sequence since it's common for other drivers to depend on GPIOs to do their work, so they must be initialized early in the device_initcall() sequence.

2007-10-16DCA: Add Direct Cache Access driverShannon Nelson
Direct Cache Access (DCA) is a method for warming the CPU cache before data is used, with the intent of lessening the impact of cache misses. This patch adds a manager and interface for matching up client requests for DCA services with devices that offer DCA services. In order to use DCA, a module must do bus writes with the appropriate tag bits set to trigger a cache read for a specific CPU. However, different CPUs and chipsets can require different sets of tag bits, and the methods for determining the correct bits may be simple hardcoding or may be a hardware specific magic incantation. This interface is a way for DCA clients to find the correct tag bits for the targeted CPU without needing to know the specifics.

2006-12-10[PATCH] kvm: userspace interfaceAvi Kivity
web site: http://kvm.sourceforge.net mailing list: kvm-devel@lists.sourceforge.net (http://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/kvm-devel) The following patchset adds a driver for Intel's hardware virtualization extensions to the x86 architecture. The driver adds a character device (/dev/kvm) that exposes the virtualization capabilities to userspace. Using this driver, a process can run a virtual machine (a "guest") in a fully virtualized PC containing its own virtual hard disks, network adapters, and display. Using this driver, one can start multiple virtual machines on a host. Each virtual machine is a process on the host; a virtual cpu is a thread in that process. kill(1), nice(1), top(1) work as expected. In effect, the driver adds a third execution mode to the existing two: we now have kernel mode, user mode, and guest mode. Guest mode has its own address space mapping guest physical memory (which is accessible to user mode by mmap()ing /dev/kvm). Guest mode has no access to any I/O devices; any such access is intercepted and directed to user mode for emulation. The driver supports i386 and x86_64 hosts and guests. All combinations are allowed except x86_64 guest on i386 host. For i386 guests and hosts, both pae and non-pae paging modes are supported. SMP hosts and UP guests are supported. At the moment only Intel hardware is supported, but AMD virtualization support is being worked on. Performance currently is non-stellar due to the naive implementation of the mmu virtualization, which throws away most of the shadow page table entries every context switch. We plan to address this in two ways: - cache shadow page tables across tlb flushes - wait until AMD and Intel release processors with nested page tables Currently a virtual desktop is responsive but consumes a lot of CPU. Under Windows I tried playing pinball and watching a few flash movies; with a recent CPU one can hardly feel the virtualization. Linux/X is slower, probably due to X being in a separate process. In addition to the driver, you need a slightly modified qemu to provide I/O device emulation and the BIOS. Caveats (akpm: might no longer be true): - The Windows install currently bluescreens due to a problem with the virtual APIC. We are working on a fix. A temporary workaround is to use an existing image or install through qemu - Windows 64-bit does not work. That's also true for qemu, so it's probably a problem with the device model.

The SGI PCI-RT card, based on the SGI IOC4 chip, will be made available on Altix XE (x86_64) platforms in the near future. As such it is now a misnomer for the IOC4 base device driver to live under drivers/sn, and would complicate builds for non-SN2. This patch moves the IOC4 base driver code from drivers/sn to drivers/misc, and updates the associated Makefiles and Kconfig files to allow building on non-SN2 configs. Due to the resulting change in link order, it is now necessary to use late_initcall() for IOC4 subdriver initialization.

2006-01-13[PATCH] spi: simple SPI frameworkDavid Brownell
This is the core of a small SPI framework, implementing the model of a queue of messages which complete asynchronously (with thin synchronous wrappers on top). - It's still less than 2KB of ".text" (ARM). If there's got to be a mid-layer for something so simple, that's the right size budget. :) - The guts use board-specific SPI device tables to build the driver model tree. (Hardware probing is rarely an option.) - This version of Kconfig includes no drivers. At this writing there are two known master controller drivers (PXA/SSP, OMAP MicroWire) and three protocol drivers (CS8415a, ADS7846, DataFlash) with LKML mentions of other drivers in development. - No userspace API. There are several implementations to compare. Implement them like any other driver, and bind them with sysfs. The changes from last version posted to LKML (on 11-Nov-2005) are minor, and include: - One bugfix (removes a FIXME), with the visible effect of making device names be "spiB.C" where B is the bus number and C is the chipselect. - The "caller provides DMA mappings" mechanism now has kerneldoc, for DMA drivers that want to be fancy. - Hey, the framework init can be subsys_init. Even though board init logic fires earlier, at arch_init ... since the framework init is for driver support, and the board init support uses static init. - Various additional spec/doc clarifications based on discussions with other folk. It adds a brief "thank you" at the end, for folk who've helped nudge this framework into existence. As I've said before, I think that "protocol tweaking" is the main support that this driver framework will need to evolve.

2005-09-11[NET]: Add netlink connector.Evgeniy Polyakov
Kernel connector - new userspace <-> kernel space easy to use communication module which implements easy to use bidirectional message bus using netlink as it's backend. Connector was created to eliminate complex skb handling both in send and receive message bus direction. Connector driver adds possibility to connect various agents using as one of it's backends netlink based network. One must register callback and identifier. When driver receives special netlink message with appropriate identifier, appropriate callback will be called. From the userspace point of view it's quite straightforward: socket(); bind(); send(); recv(); But if kernelspace want to use full power of such connections, driver writer must create special sockets, must know about struct sk_buff handling... Connector allows any kernelspace agents to use netlink based networking for inter-process communication in a significantly easier way: int cn_add_callback(struct cb_id *id, char *name, void (*callback) (void *)); void cn_netlink_send(struct cn_msg *msg, u32 __groups, int gfp_mask); struct cb_id { __u32 idx; __u32 val; }; idx and val are unique identifiers which must be registered in connector.h for in-kernel usage. void (*callback) (void *) - is a callback function which will be called when message with above idx.val will be received by connector core. Using connector completely hides low-level transport layer from it's users. Connector uses new netlink ability to have many groups in one socket.

2005-07-11[NET]: add a top-level Networking menu to *configSam Ravnborg
Create a new top-level menu named "Networking" thus moving net related options and protocol selection way from the drivers menu and up on the top-level where they belong. To implement this all architectures has to source "net/Kconfig" before drivers/*/Kconfig in their Kconfig file. This change has been implemented for all architectures. Device drivers for ordinary NIC's are still to be found in the Device Drivers section, but Bluetooth, IrDA and ax25 are located with their corresponding menu entries under the new networking menu item.

2005-06-21[PATCH] ioc4: CONFIG splitBrent Casavant
The SGI IOC4 I/O controller chip drivers are currently all configured by CONFIG_BLK_DEV_SGIIOC4. This is undesirable as not all IOC4 hardware features are needed by all systems. This patch adds two configuration variables, CONFIG_SGI_IOC4 for core IOC4 driver support (see patch 1/3 in this series for further explanation) and CONFIG_SERIAL_SGI_IOC4 to independently enable serial port support.

Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
