2011-09-27doc: fix broken referencesPaul Bolle
There are numerous broken references to Documentation files (in other Documentation files, in comments, etc.). These broken references are caused by typo's in the references, and by renames or removals of the Documentation files. Some broken references are simply odd. Fix these broken references, sometimes by dropping the irrelevant text they were part of. Signed-off-by: Paul Bolle <pebolle@tiscali.nl> Signed-off-by: Jiri Kosina <jkosina@suse.cz>

2010-08-04Documentation: Add timers/timers-howto.txtPatrick Pannuto
This file seeks to explain the nuances in various delays; many driver writers are not necessarily familiar with the various kernel timers, their shortfalls, and quirks. When faced with ndelay, udelay, mdelay, usleep_range, msleep, and msleep_interrubtible the question "How do I just wait 1 ms for my hardware to latch?" has the non-intuitive "best" answer: usleep_range(1000,1500) This patch is followed by a series of checkpatch additions that seek to help kernel hackers pick the best delay.

2010-06-01Documentation/timers/hpet_example.c: only build on X86Randy Dunlap
We should only build hpet_example on x86[-64], where it is implemented. It can cause build errors on other architectures.

2010-03-12Documentation/timers/: split txt and source filesRandy Dunlap
Documentation/timers/hpet.txt: Expose example and tool source files in the Documentation/timers/ directory in their own files instead of being buried (almost hidden) in readme/txt files. This should help to prevent bitrot. This will make them more visible/usable to users who may need to use them, to developers who may need to test with them, and to anyone who would fix/update them if they were more visible. Also, if any of these possibly should not be in the kernel tree at all, it will be clearer that they are here and we can discuss if they should be removed.

2008-07-31hpet: /dev/hpet - fixes and cleanupDavid Brownell
Minor /dev/hpet updates and bugfixes: * Remove dead code, mostly remnants of an incomplete/unusable kernel interface ... noted when addressing "sparse" warnings: + hpet_unregister() and a routine it calls + hpet_task and all references, including hpet_task_lock + hpet_data.hd_flags (and HPET_DATA_PLATFORM) * Correct and improve boot message: + displays *counter* (shared between comparators) bit width, not *timer* bit widths (which are often mixed) + relabel "timers" as "comparators"; this is less confusing, they are not independent like normal timers are (sigh) + display MHz not Hz; it's never less than 10 MHz. * Tighten and correct the userspace interface code + don't accidentally program comparators in 64-bit mode using 32-bit values ... always force comparators into 32-bit mode + provide the correct bit definition flagging comparators with periodic capability ... the ABI is unchanged * Update Documentation/hpet.txt + be more correct and current + expand description a bit + don't mention that now-gone kernel interface Plus, add a FIXME comment for something that could cause big trouble on systems with more capable HPETs than at least Intel seems to ship. It seems that few folk use this userspace interface; it's not very usable given the general lack of HPET IRQ routing. I'm told that the only real point of it any more is to mmap for fast timestamps; IMO that's handled better through the gettimeofday() vsyscall.

2008-04-17Documentation: move timer related documentation to a single placeThomas Gleixner
We have two directories with timer related information in Documentation/: hrtimers/ and hrtimer/. timer_stats are not restricted to hrtimers. Move all those files into Documentation/timers where we can pile up other timer related docs as well.
