Fix it by calling ide_device_get() before kref_get() and ide_device_put() after kref_put() in all affected device drivers. v2: Brown paper bag time. In v1 cd->drive was referenced after dropping last reference on cd object (which could result in OOPS in ide_device_put() as reported/debugged by Mariusz Kozlowski). Fix it by caching cd->drive in the local variable (fix other device drivers too).

When I tested the same on older kernels like 2.6.18, I got the correct result i.e errno 12 (ENOMEM). I think in source code mlock(2), setting errno ENOMEM has been missed in do_mlock() , on mlock_fixup() failure. SUSv3 requires the following behavior frmo mlock(2). [ENOMEM] Some or all of the address range specified by the addr and len arguments does not correspond to valid mapped pages in the address space of the process. [EAGAIN] Some or all of the memory identified by the operation could not be locked when the call was made. This rule isn't so nice and slighly strange. but many people think POSIX/SUS compliance is important.

2008-08-04atmel_spi: fix hang due to missed interruptGerard Kam
For some time my at91sam9260 board with JFFS2 on serial flash (m25p80) would hang when accessing the serial flash and SPI bus. Slowing the SPI clock down to 9 MHz reduced the occurrence of the hang from "always" during boot to a nuisance level that allowed other SW development to continue. Finally had to address this issue when an application stresses the I/O to always cause a hang. Hang seems to be caused by a missed SPI interrupt, so that the task ends up waiting forever after calling spi_sync(). The fix has 2 parts. First is to halt the DMA engine before the "current" PDC registers are loaded. This ensures that the "next" registers are loaded before the DMA operation takes off. The second part of the fix is a kludge that adds a "completion" interrupt in case the ENDRX interrupt for the last segment of the DMA chaining operation was missed. The patch allows the SPI clock for the serial flash to be increased from 9 MHz to 15 MHz (or more?). No hangs or SPI overruns were encountered. Haavard: while this patch does indeed improve things, I still see overruns and CRC errors on my NGW100 board when running the DataFlash at 10 MHz. However, I think some improvement is better than nothing, so I'm passing this on for inclusion in 2.6.27.

2008-08-04sparc64: Call xcall_deliver() directly in some cases.David S. Miller
For these cases the callers make sure: 1) The cpus indicated are online. 2) The current cpu is not in the list of indicated cpus. Therefore we can pass a pointer to the mask directly. One of the motivations in this transformation is to make use of "&cpumask_of_cpu(cpu)" which evaluates to a pointer to constant data in the kernel and thus takes up no stack space. Hopefully someone in the future will change the interface of arch_send_call_function_ipi() such that it passes a const cpumask_t pointer so that this will optimize ever further.
