Some changes done a while ago to avoid pounding on ptep_set_access_flags and update_mmu_cache in some race situations break sun4c which requires update_mmu_cache() to always be called on minor faults. This patch reworks ptep_set_access_flags() semantics, implementations and callers so that it's now responsible for returning whether an update is necessary or not (basically whether the PTE actually changed). This allow fixing the sparc implementation to always return 1 on sun4c.

2007-05-09[POWERPC] Change rheap functions to use ulongs instead of pointersTimur Tabi
The rheap allocation functions return a pointer, but the actual value is based on how the heap was initialized, and so it can be anything, e.g. an offset into a buffer. A ulong is a better representation of the value returned by the allocation functions. This patch changes all of the relevant rheap functions to use a unsigned long integers instead of a pointer. In case of an error, the value returned is a negative error code that has been cast to an unsigned long. The caller can use the IS_ERR_VALUE() macro to check for this. All code which calls the rheap functions is updated accordingly. Macros IS_MURAM_ERR() and IS_DPERR(), have been deleted in favor of IS_ERR_VALUE(). Also added error checking to rh_attach_region().

dependency atomic_add_unless as inline. Remove system.h atomic.h circular dependency. I agree (with Andi Kleen) this typeof is not needed and more error prone. All the original atomic.h code that uses cmpxchg (which includes the atomic_add_unless) uses defines instead of inline functions, probably to circumvent a circular dependency between system.h and atomic.h on powerpc (which my patch addresses). Therefore, it makes sense to use inline functions that will provide type checking. atomic_add_unless as inline. Remove system.h atomic.h circular dependency. Digging into the FRV architecture shows me that it is also affected by such a circular dependency. Here is the diff applying this against the rest of my atomic.h patches.

Add hooks to allow a paravirt implementation to track the lifetime of an mm. Paravirtualization requires three hooks, but only two are needed in common code. They are: arch_dup_mmap, which is called when a new mmap is created at fork arch_exit_mmap, which is called when the last process reference to an mm is dropped, which typically happens on exit and exec. The third hook is activate_mm, which is called from the arch-specific activate_mm() macro/function, and so doesn't need stub versions for other architectures. It's called when an mm is first used.

2006-12-08[POWERPC] Fix mmap of PCI resource with hack for XBenjamin Herrenschmidt
The powerpc version of pci_resource_to_user() and associated hooks used by /proc/bus/pci and /sys/bus/pci mmap have been broken for some time on machines that don't have a 1:1 mapping of devices (basically on non-PowerMacs) and have PCI devices above 32 bits. This attempts to fix it as well as possible. The rule is supposed to be that pci_resource_to_user() always converts the resources back into a BAR values since that's what the /proc interface was supposed to deal with. However, for X to work on platforms where PCI MMIO is not mapped 1:1, it became a habit of platforms like powerpc to pass "fixed up" values there since X expects to be able to use values from /proc/bus/pci/devices as offsets to mmap of /dev/mem... So we keep that contraption here, causing also /sys/*/resource to expose fully absolute MMIO addresses instead of BAR values, which is ugly, but should still work as long as those are only used to calculate alignment within a page. X is still broken when built 32 bits on machines where PCI MMIO can be above 32-bit space unfortunately.

2006-12-08[POWERPC] Define pci_unmap_addr() et al. when CONFIG_NOT_COHERENT_CACHE=yRoland Dreier
The current PowerPC code makes pci_unmap_addr(), pci_unmap_addr_set(), and friends trivial for all 32-bit kernels. This is reasonable, since for those kernels it is true that pci_unmap_single() does not need the DMA address from the original DMA mapping -- in fact, it is a NOP. However, I recently tried the tg3 driver on a PowerPC 440SPe machine, which runs a 32-bit kernel and has non-cache-coherent PCI DMA. I found that the tg3 driver crashed in pci_dma_sync_single_for_cpu(), since for non-coherent systems, that function must invalidate the cache for the DMA address range requested, and therefore it does use the address passed in. tg3 uses a DMA address it stashes away with pci_unmap_addr_set() and retrieves with pci_unmap_addr(). Of course, since pci_unmap_addr() is defined to (0) right now, this doesn't work. It seems to me that the tg3 driver is using pci_unmap_addr() in a legitimate way -- I wouldn't want to have to teach all drivers that they should use pci_unmap_addr() if they only need the address for unmapping functions, but if they want the pci_dma_sync functions, then they have to store the DMA address without the helper macros. The right fix therefore seems to be in the definition of the macros in <asm/pci.h> -- we should use the trivial versions only for 32-bit kernels for coherent systems, and the real versions for both 64-bit kernels and non-coherent systems.

2006-12-04[POWERPC] Allow hooking of PCI MMIO & PIO accessors on 64 bitsBenjamin Herrenschmidt
This patch reworks the way iSeries hooks on PCI IO operations (both MMIO and PIO) and provides a generic way for other platforms to do so (we have need to do that for various other platforms). While reworking the IO ops, I ended up doing some spring cleaning in io.h and eeh.h which I might want to split into 2 or 3 patches (among others, eeh.h had a lot of useless stuff in it). A side effect is that EEH for PIO should work now (it used to pass IO ports down to the eeh address check functions which is bogus). Also, new are MMIO "repeat" ops, which other archs like ARM already had, and that we have too now: readsb, readsw, readsl, writesb, writesw, writesl. In the long run, I might also make EEH use the hooks instead of wrapping at the toplevel, which would make things even cleaner and relegate EEH completely in platforms/iseries, but we have to measure the performance impact there (though it's really only on MMIO reads) Since I also need to hook on ioremap, I shuffled the functions a bit there. I introduced ioremap_flags() to use by drivers who want to pass explicit flags to ioremap (and it can be hooked). The old __ioremap() is still there as a low level and cannot be hooked, thus drivers who use it should migrate unless they know they want the low level version. The patch "arch provides generic iomap missing accessors" (should be number 4 in this series) is a pre-requisite to provide full iomap API support with this patch.

2006-10-01[PATCH] Directed yield: cpu_relax variants for spinlocks and rw-locksMartin Schwidefsky
On systems running with virtual cpus there is optimization potential in regard to spinlocks and rw-locks. If the virtual cpu that has taken a lock is known to a cpu that wants to acquire the same lock it is beneficial to yield the timeslice of the virtual cpu in favour of the cpu that has the lock (directed yield). With CONFIG_PREEMPT="n" this can be implemented by the architecture without common code changes. Powerpc already does this. With CONFIG_PREEMPT="y" the lock loops are coded with _raw_spin_trylock, _raw_read_trylock and _raw_write_trylock in kernel/spinlock.c. If the lock could not be taken cpu_relax is called. A directed yield is not possible because cpu_relax doesn't know anything about the lock. To be able to yield the lock in favour of the current lock holder variants of cpu_relax for spinlocks and rw-locks are needed. The new _raw_spin_relax, _raw_read_relax and _raw_write_relax primitives differ from cpu_relax insofar that they have an argument: a pointer to the lock structure.

2006-09-26[PATCH] Standardize pxx_page macrosDave McCracken
One of the changes necessary for shared page tables is to standardize the pxx_page macros. pte_page and pmd_page have always returned the struct page associated with their entry, while pte_page_kernel and pmd_page_kernel have returned the kernel virtual address. pud_page and pgd_page, on the other hand, return the kernel virtual address. Shared page tables needs pud_page and pgd_page to return the actual page structures. There are very few actual users of these functions, so it is simple to standardize their usage. Since this is basic cleanup, I am submitting these changes as a standalone patch. Per Hugh Dickins' comments about it, I am also changing the pxx_page_kernel macros to pxx_page_vaddr to clarify their meaning.
