2009-06-13Blackfin: do not configure the UART early if on wrong processorRobin Getz
Before we configure the early UART, check to make sure we are running on the expected processor - otherwise, we cause problems by configuring pins that don't exist (and causing an infinite loop of faults).

2009-06-13Blackfin: fix deadlock in SMP IPI handlerSonic Zhang
When a low priority interrupt (like ethernet) is triggered between 2 high priority IPI messages, a deadlock in disable_irq() is hit by the second IPI handler. This is because the second IPI message is queued within the first IPI handler, but the handler doesn't process all messages, and new ones are inserted rather than appended. So now we process all the pending messages, and append new ones to the pending list.

2009-06-13Blackfin: fix flag storage for irq funcsMike Frysinger

2009-06-13Blackfin: push down exception oops checkingMike Frysinger
Rather than maintain a duplicate list of valid exceptions we can take in the kernel both in the first if() check and the switch() check, delay the oops check to after the switch(). All valid exceptions will have returned by this point leaving only the invalid ones. Signed-off-by: Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>
2009-06-13Blackfin: fix trap_c() exit pathsMike Frysinger
The trap_c() code pushes the hardware trace status onto the stack, but doesn't always restore it when returning from some trap code paths. So unify the exit code paths to all head to the end of the function. Signed-off-by: Mike Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>

2009-06-13Blackfin: only handle CPLB protection violations when MPU is enabledRobin Getz
We don't need to handle CPLB protection violations unless we are running with the MPU on. Fix the entry code to call common trap_c, and remove the code which is never run.

2009-06-12PM core: rename suspend and resume functionsAlan Stern
This patch (as1241) renames a bunch of functions in the PM core. Rather than go through a boring list of name changes, suffice it to say that in the end we have a bunch of pairs of functions: device_resume_noirq dpm_resume_noirq device_resume dpm_resume device_complete dpm_complete device_suspend_noirq dpm_suspend_noirq device_suspend dpm_suspend device_prepare dpm_prepare in which device_X does the X operation on a single device and dpm_X invokes device_X for all devices in the dpm_list. In addition, the old dpm_power_up and device_resume_noirq have been combined into a single function (dpm_resume_noirq). Lastly, dpm_suspend_start and dpm_resume_end are the renamed versions of the former top-level device_suspend and device_resume routines.

2009-06-12PM: Rename device_power_down/up()Magnus Damm
Rename the functions performing "_noirq" dev_pm_ops operations from device_power_down() and device_power_up() to device_suspend_noirq() and device_resume_noirq(). The new function names are chosen to show that the functions are responsible for calling the _noirq() versions to finalize the suspend/resume operation. The current function names do not perform power down/up anymore so the names may be misleading. Global function renames: - device_power_down() -> device_suspend_noirq() - device_power_up() -> device_resume_noirq() Static function renames: - suspend_device_noirq() -> __device_suspend_noirq() - resume_device_noirq() -> __device_resume_noirq() Signed-off-by: Magnus Damm <damm@igel.co.jp> Acked-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@suse.de> Acked-by: Len Brown <lenb@kernel.org> Signed-off-by: Rafael J.

2009-06-12lguest: optimize by coding restore_flags and irq_enable in assembler.Rusty Russell
The downside of the last patch which made restore_flags and irq_enable check interrupts is that they are now too big to be patched directly into the callsites, so the C versions are always used. But the C versions go via PV_CALLEE_SAVE_REGS_THUNK which saves all the registers. In fact, we don't need any registers in the fast path, so we can do better than this if we actually code them in assembler. The results are in the noise, but since it's about the same amount of code, it's worth applying. 1GB Guest->Host: input(suppressed),output(suppressed) Before: Seconds: 0:16.53 Packets: 377268,753673 Interrupts: 22461,24297 Notifications: 1(5245),21303(732370) Net IRQs triggered: 377023(245),42578(711095) After: Seconds: 0:16.48 Packets: 377289,753673 Interrupts: 22281,24465 Notifications: 1(5245),21296(732377) Net IRQs triggered: 377060(229),42564(711109) Signed-off-by: Rusty Russell <rusty@rustcorp.com.au>
2009-06-12lguest: improve interrupt handling, speed up stream networkingRusty Russell
lguest never checked for pending interrupts when enabling interrupts, and things still worked. However, it makes a significant difference to TCP performance, so it's time we fixed it by introducing a pending_irq flag and checking it on irq_restore and irq_enable. These two routines are now too big to patch into the 8/10 bytes patch space, so we drop that code. Note: The high latency on interrupt delivery had a very curious effect: once everything else was optimized, networking without GSO was faster than networking with GSO, since more interrupts were sent and hence a greater chance of one getting through to the Guest! Note2: (Almost) Closing the same loophole for iret doesn't have any measurable effect, so I'm leaving that patch for the moment.

Everyone cut and paste this comment from my original one. We now do it generically, so cut the comments. Signed-off-by: Rusty Russell <rusty@rustcorp.com.au> Cc: Amerigo Wang <amwang@redhat.com>
2009-06-12module: trim exception table on init free.Rusty Russell
It's theoretically possible that there are exception table entries which point into the (freed) init text of modules. These could cause future problems if other modules get loaded into that memory and cause an exception as we'd see the wrong fixup. The only case I know of is kvm-intel.ko (when CONFIG_CC_OPTIMIZE_FOR_SIZE=n). Amerigo fixed this long-standing FIXME in the x86 version, but this patch is more general. This implements trim_init_extable(); most archs are simple since they use the standard lib/extable.c sort code. Alpha and IA64 use relative addresses in their fixups, so thier trimming is a slight variation. Sparc32 is unique; it doesn't seem to define ARCH_HAS_SORT_EXTABLE, yet it defines its own sort_extable() which overrides the one in lib. It doesn't sort, so we have to mark deleted entries instead of actually trimming them.

2009-06-12module: merge module_alloc() finallyAmerigo Wang
As Christoph Hellwig suggested, module_alloc() actually can be unified for i386 and x86_64 (of course, also UML). Signed-off-by: WANG Cong <amwang@redhat.com> Cc: Christoph Hellwig <hch@infradead.org> Cc: 'Ingo Molnar' <mingo@elte.hu> Signed-off-by: Rusty Russell <rusty@rustcorp.com.au>
