2013-05-05mtd_blktrans_ops->release() should return voidAl Viro
Both existing instances always return 0 and even if they didn't, the value would be lost on the way out. Just don't bother... Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>
2012-03-27mtd: mtdblock: call mtd_sync() only if opened for writeAlexander Stein
Because it is useless to call it if the device is opened in R/O mode, and also harmful: on CFI NOR flash it may block for long time waiting for erase operations to complete is another partition with a R/W file-system on this chip. Artem Bityutskiy: write commit message, amend the patch to match the latest tree (we use mtd_sync(), not mtd->sync() nowadays).

2012-01-09mtd: do not use mtd->sync directlyArtem Bityutskiy
This patch teaches 'mtd_sync()' to do nothing when the MTD driver does not have the '->sync()' method, which allows us to remove all direct 'mtd->sync' accesses. Signed-off-by: Artem Bityutskiy <artem.bityutskiy@linux.intel.com> Signed-off-by: David Woodhouse <David.Woodhouse@intel.com>

2012-01-09mtd: introduce mtd_erase interfaceArtem Bityutskiy
This patch is part of a patch-set which changes the MTD interface from 'mtd->func()' form to 'mtd_func()' form. We need this because we want to add common code to to all drivers in the mtd core level, which is impossible with the current interface when MTD clients call driver functions like 'read()' or 'write()' directly. At this point we just introduce a new inline wrapper function, but later some of them are expected to gain more code. E.g., the input parameters check should be moved to the wrappers rather than be duplicated at many drivers. This particular patch introduced the 'mtd_erase()' interface. The following patches add all the other interfaces one by one. Signed-off-by: Artem Bityutskiy <artem.bityutskiy@linux.intel.com> Signed-off-by: David Woodhouse <David.Woodhouse@intel.com>
2011-09-11mtd: replace DEBUG() with pr_debug()Brian Norris
Start moving away from the MTD_DEBUG_LEVEL messages. The dynamic debugging feature is a generic kernel feature that provides more flexibility. (See Documentation/dynamic-debug-howto.txt) Also fix some punctuation, indentation, and capitalization that went along with the affected lines.

2010-02-26mtd: blktrans: Hotplug fixesMaxim Levitsky
* Add locking where it was missing. * Don't do a get_mtd_device in blktrans_open because it would lead to a deadlock; instead do that in add_mtd_blktrans_dev. * Only free the mtd_blktrans_dev structure when the last user exits. * Flush request queue on device removal. * Track users, and call tr->release in del_mtd_blktrans_dev Due to that ->open and release aren't called more that once. Now it is safe to call del_mtd_blktrans_dev while the device is still in use. Signed-off-by: Maxim Levitsky <maximlevitsky@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: David Woodhouse <David.Woodhouse@intel.com>
2010-02-25mtd: mtdblock: Dynamically allocate cache info structuresBen Hutchings
Since we allocate struct mtd_blktrans_dev for each block device, we can add our own structure members to the end. Therefore embed struct mtd_blktrans_dev in struct mtdblk_dev and remove the static array of struct mtdblk_dev. Also remove the redundant pointer to struct mtd_info. This is preparation for removing the static limit on the number of MTD devices.

2006-04-17Simplify test for RAM devicesJörn Engel
mtdblock is the only user of aggregate capabilities in mtd. This is clearly bogus and should be changed. In particular, it tries to determine whether the device in question is a piece of RAM. For every single driver that fits the current criteria, an easier test would be to check for the type being MTD_RAM.

2005-10-30[PATCH] fix missing includesTim Schmielau
I recently picked up my older work to remove unnecessary #includes of sched.h, starting from a patch by Dave Jones to not include sched.h from module.h. This reduces the number of indirect includes of sched.h by ~300. Another ~400 pointless direct includes can be removed after this disentangling (patch to follow later). However, quite a few indirect includes need to be fixed up for this. In order to feed the patches through -mm with as little disturbance as possible, I've split out the fixes I accumulated up to now (complete for i386 and x86_64, more archs to follow later) and post them before the real patch. This way this large part of the patch is kept simple with only adding #includes, and all hunks are independent of each other. So if any hunk rejects or gets in the way of other patches, just drop it. My scripts will pick it up again in the next round.

2005-04-16Linux-2.6.12-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!
