2005-11-28[PATCH] FRV: Make the FRV arch work againDavid Howells
The attached patch implements a bunch of small changes to the FRV arch to make it work again. It deals with the following problems: (1) SEM_DEBUG should be SEMAPHORE_DEBUG. (2) The argument list to pcibios_penalize_isa_irq() has changed. (3) CONFIG_HIGHMEM can't be used directly in #if as it may not be defined. (4) page->private is no longer directly accessible. (5) linux/hardirq.h assumes asm/hardirq.h will include linux/irq.h (6) The IDE MMIO access functions are given pointers, not integers, and so get type casting errors. (7) __pa() is passed an explicit u64 type in drivers/char/mem.c, but that can't be cast directly to a pointer on a 32-bit platform. (8) SEMAPHORE_DEBUG should not be contingent on WAITQUEUE_DEBUG as that no longer exists. (9) PREEMPT_ACTIVE is too low a value.

2005-10-29[PATCH] mm: split page table lockHugh Dickins
Christoph Lameter demonstrated very poor scalability on the SGI 512-way, with a many-threaded application which concurrently initializes different parts of a large anonymous area. This patch corrects that, by using a separate spinlock per page table page, to guard the page table entries in that page, instead of using the mm's single page_table_lock. (But even then, page_table_lock is still used to guard page table allocation, and anon_vma allocation.) In this implementation, the spinlock is tucked inside the struct page of the page table page: with a BUILD_BUG_ON in case it overflows - which it would in the case of 32-bit PA-RISC with spinlock debugging enabled. Splitting the lock is not quite for free: another cacheline access. Ideally, I suppose we would use split ptlock only for multi-threaded processes on multi-cpu machines; but deciding that dynamically would have its own costs. So for now enable it by config, at some number of cpus - since the Kconfig language doesn't support inequalities, let preprocessor compare that with NR_CPUS. But I don't think it's worth being user-configurable: for good testing of both split and unsplit configs, split now at 4 cpus, and perhaps change that to 8 later. There is a benefit even for singly threaded processes: kswapd can be attacking one part of the mm while another part is busy faulting.

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!
