2009-12-16kexec: premit reduction of the reserved memory sizeAmerigo Wang
Implement shrinking the reserved memory for crash kernel, if it is more than enough. For example, if you have already reserved 128M, now you just want 100M, you can do: # echo $((100*1024*1024)) > /sys/kernel/kexec_crash_size Note, you can only do this before loading the crash kernel.

2008-10-16profiling: dynamically enable readprofile at runtimeDave Hansen
Way too often, I have a machine that exhibits some kind of crappy behavior. The CPU looks wedged in the kernel or it is spending way too much system time and I wonder what is responsible. I try to run readprofile. But, of course, Ubuntu doesn't enable it by default. Dang! The reason we boot-time enable it is that it takes a big bufffer that we generally can only bootmem alloc. But, does it hurt to at least try and runtime-alloc it? To use: echo 2 > /sys/kernel/profile Then run readprofile like normal. This should fix the compile issue with allmodconfig. I've compile-tested on a bunch more configs now including a few more architectures.

2008-01-24Kobject: convert remaining kobject_unregister() to kobject_put()Greg Kroah-Hartman
There is no need for kobject_unregister() anymore, thanks to Kay's kobject cleanup changes, so replace all instances of it with kobject_put(). Cc: Kay Sievers <kay.sievers@vrfy.org> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@suse.de>
2008-01-24kobject: convert kernel_kset to be a kobjectGreg Kroah-Hartman
kernel_kset does not need to be a kset, but a much simpler kobject now that we have kobj_attributes. We also rename kernel_kset to kernel_kobj to catch all users of this symbol with a build error instead of an easy-to-ignore build warning.

2008-01-24fix struct user_info export's sysfs interactionKay Sievers
Clean up the use of ksets and kobjects. Kobjects are instances of objects (like struct user_info), ksets are collections of objects of a similar type (like the uids directory containing the user_info directories). So, use kobjects for the user_info directories, and a kset for the "uids" directory. On object cleanup, the final kobject_put() was missing.

2008-01-24kset: convert kernel_subsys to use kset_createGreg Kroah-Hartman
Dynamically create the kset instead of declaring it statically. We also rename kernel_subsys to kernel_kset to catch all users of this symbol with a build error instead of an easy-to-ignore build warning. Cc: Kay Sievers <kay.sievers@vrfy.org> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@suse.de>
2008-01-24kobject: remove struct kobj_type from struct ksetGreg Kroah-Hartman
We don't need a "default" ktype for a kset. We should set this explicitly every time for each kset. This change is needed so that we can make ksets dynamic, and cleans up one of the odd, undocumented assumption that the kset/kobject/ktype model has.

2007-10-17add-vmcore: cleanup the coding style according to Andrew's commentsKen'ichi Ohmichi
[1/3] Cleanup the coding style according to Andrew's comments: http://lists.infradead.org/pipermail/kexec/2007-August/000522.html - vmcoreinfo_append_str() should have suitable __attribute__s so that the compiler can check its use. - vmcoreinfo_max_size should have size_t. - Use get_seconds() instead of xtime.tv_sec. - Use init_uts_ns.name.release instead of UTS_RELEASE.

2007-10-17Add vmcoreinfoKen'ichi Ohmichi
This patch set frees the restriction that makedumpfile users should install a vmlinux file (including the debugging information) into each system. makedumpfile command is the dump filtering feature for kdump. It creates a small dumpfile by filtering unnecessary pages for the analysis. To distinguish unnecessary pages, it needs a vmlinux file including the debugging information. These days, the debugging package becomes a huge file, and it is hard to install it into each system. To solve the problem, kdump developers discussed it at lkml and kexec-ml. As the result, we reached the conclusion that necessary information for dump filtering (called "vmcoreinfo") should be embedded into the first kernel file and it should be accessed through /proc/vmcore during the second kernel. (http://www.uwsg.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/0707.0/1806.html) Dan Aloni created the patch set for the above implementation. (http://www.uwsg.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/0707.1/1053.html) And I updated it for multi architectures and memory models.

2007-10-15sched: group scheduling, sysfs tunablesDhaval Giani
Add tunables in sysfs to modify a user's cpu share. A directory is created in sysfs for each new user in the system. /sys/kernel/uids/<uid>/cpu_share Reading this file returns the cpu shares granted for the user. Writing into this file modifies the cpu share for the user. Only an administrator is allowed to modify a user's cpu share.

2007-07-20FRV: Fix linkage problemsDavid Howells
Make it possible to use __start_notes and __stop_notes without getting a GPREL overflow error from the FRV linker. Small variables that would otherwise be in .data or .bss may, depending on the arch, be placed in special sections (.sdata or .sbss) that permit single instruction references on fixed instruction width machines. __start_notes and __stop_notes aren't really char variables, and certainly don't refer to data in .data or .bss. Making them type "void" fools the compiler into not assuming anything about them. Signed-off-by: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

2006-01-10[PATCH] kdump: export per cpu crash notes pointer through sysfsVivek Goyal
- Kexec on panic functionality allocates memory for saving cpu registers in case of system crash event. Address of this allocated memory needs to be exported to user space, which is used by kexec-tools. - Previously, a single /sys/kernel/crash_notes entry was being exported as memory allocated was a single continuous array. Now memory allocation being dyanmic and per cpu based, address of per cpu buffer is exported through "/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpuX/crash_notes" Signed-off-by: Vivek Goyal <vgoyal@in.ibm.com> Cc: Greg KH <greg@kroah.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>

2006-01-04[PATCH] add uevent_helper control in /sys/kernel/Kay Sievers
This deprecates the /proc/sys/kernel/hotplug file, as all this stuff should be in /sys some day, right? :) In /sys/kernel/ we have now uevent_seqnum and uevent_helper. The seqnum is no longer used by udev, as the version for this kernel depends on netlink which events will never get out-of-order. Recent udev versions disable the /sbin/hotplug helper with an init script, cause it leads to OOM on big boxes by running hundreds of shells in parallel. It should be done now by: echo "" > /sys/kernel/uevent_helper (Note that "-n" does not work, cause neighter proc nor sysfs support truncate().)

2005-04-16Linux-2.6.12-rc2v2.6.12-rc2Linus Torvalds
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!
