2007-10-12dma_free_coherent() needs irqs enabled (sigh)David Brownell
On at least ARM (and I'm told MIPS too) dma_free_coherent() has a newish call context requirement: unlike its dma_alloc_coherent() sibling, it may not be called with IRQs disabled. (This was new behavior on ARM as of late 2005, caused by ARM SMP updates.) This little surprise can be annoyingly driver-visible. Since it looks like that restriction won't be removed, this patch changes the definition of the API to include that requirement. Also, to help catch nonportable drivers, it updates the x86 and swiotlb versions to include the relevant warnings. (I already observed that it trips on the bus_reset_tasklet of the new firewire_ohci driver.)

2007-10-12sysfs: move sysfs file poll implementation to sysfs_open_direntTejun Heo
Sysfs file poll implementation is scattered over sysfs and kobject. Event numbering is done in sysfs_dirent but wait itself is done on kobject. This not only unecessarily bloats both kobject and sysfs_dirent but is also buggy - if a sysfs_dirent is removed while there still are pollers, the associaton betwen the kobject and sysfs_dirent breaks and kobject may be freed with the pollers still sleeping on it. This patch moves whole poll implementation into sysfs_open_dirent. Each time a sysfs_open_dirent is created, event number restarts from 1 and pollers sleep on sysfs_open_dirent. As event sequence number is meaningless without any open file and pollers should have open file and thus sysfs_open_dirent, this ephemeral event counting works and is a saner implementation. This patch fixes the dnagling sleepers bug and reduces the sizes of kobject and sysfs_dirent by one pointer.

2007-10-12sysfs: Remove first pass at shadow directory supportEric W. Biederman
While shadow directories appear to be a good idea, the current scheme of controlling their creation and destruction outside of sysfs appears to be a locking and maintenance nightmare in the face of sysfs directories dynamically coming and going. Which can now occur for directories containing network devices when CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPRECATED is not set. This patch removes everything from the initial shadow directory support that allowed the shadow directory creation to be controlled at a higher level. So except for a few bits of sysfs_rename_dir everything from commit b592fcfe7f06c15ec11774b5be7ce0de3aa86e73 is now gone. Signed-off-by: Eric W.

2007-10-12kobject: remove the static array for the nameGreg Kroah-Hartman
Due to historical reasons, struct kobject contained a static array for the name, and a dynamic pointer in case the name got bigger than the array. That's just dumb, as people didn't always know which variable to reference, even with the accessor for the kobject name. This patch removes the static array, potentially saving a lot of memory as the majority of kobjects do not have a very long name. Thanks to Kay for the idea to do this.

2007-10-12Driver core: add CONFIG_UEVENT_HELPER_PATHKay Sievers
The kernel creates a process for every event that is send, even when there is no binary it could execute. We are needlessly creating around 200-300 failing processes during early bootup, until we have the chance to disable it from userspace. This change allows us to disable /sbin/hotplug entirely, if you want to, by setting UEVENT_HELPER_PATH="" in the kernel config.

2007-10-10[NET]: Support multiple network namespaces with netlinkEric W. Biederman
Each netlink socket will live in exactly one network namespace, this includes the controlling kernel sockets. This patch updates all of the existing netlink protocols to only support the initial network namespace. Request by clients in other namespaces will get -ECONREFUSED. As they would if the kernel did not have the support for that netlink protocol compiled in. As each netlink protocol is updated to be multiple network namespace safe it can register multiple kernel sockets to acquire a presence in the rest of the network namespaces.

2007-10-03[POWERPC] ppc64: support CONFIG_DEBUG_PREEMPTHugh Dickins
Add CONFIG_DEBUG_PREEMPT support to ppc64: it was useful for testing get_paca() preemption. Cheat a little, just use debug_smp_processor_id() in the debug version of get_paca(): it contains all the right checks and reporting, though get_paca() doesn't really use smp_processor_id(). Use local_paca for what might have been called __raw_get_paca(). Silence harmless warnings from io.h and lparcfg.c with local_paca - it is okay for iseries_lparcfg_data to be referencing shared_proc with preemption enabled: all cpus should show the same value for shared_proc. Why do other architectures need TRACE_IRQFLAGS_SUPPORT for DEBUG_PREEMPT? I don't know, ppc64 appears to get along fine without it.

2007-07-21Fix swiotlb_sync_single_range()Keir Fraser
If the swiotlb maps a multi-slab region, swiotlb_sync_single_range() can be invoked to sync a sub-region which does not include the first slab. Unfortunately io_tlb_orig_addr[] is only initialised for the first slab, and hence the call to sync_single() will read a garbage orig_addr in this case. This patch fixes the issue by initialising all mapped slabs in io_tlb_orig_addr[]. It also correctly adjusts the buffer pointer in sync_single() to handle the case that the given dma_addr is not aligned on a slab boundary.

2007-07-19lockstat: core infrastructurePeter Zijlstra
Introduce the core lock statistics code. Lock statistics provides lock wait-time and hold-time (as well as the count of corresponding contention and acquisitions events). Also, the first few call-sites that encounter contention are tracked. Lock wait-time is the time spent waiting on the lock. This provides insight into the locking scheme, that is, a heavily contended lock is indicative of a too coarse locking scheme. Lock hold-time is the duration the lock was held, this provides a reference for the wait-time numbers, so they can be put into perspective. 1) lock 2) ... do stuff .. unlock 3) The time between 1 and 2 is the wait-time. The time between 2 and 3 is the hold-time. The lockdep held-lock tracking code is reused, because it already collects locks into meaningful groups (classes), and because it is an existing infrastructure for lock instrumentation. Currently lockdep tracks lock acquisition with two hooks: lock() lock_acquire() _lock() ... code protected by lock ... unlock() lock_release() _unlock() We need to extend this with two more hooks, in order to measure contention. lock_contended() - used to measure contention events lock_acquired() - completion of the contention These are then placed the following way: lock() lock_acquire() if (!_try_lock()) lock_contended() _lock() lock_acquired() ... do locked stuff ... unlock() lock_release() _unlock() (Note: the try_lock() 'trick' is used to avoid instrumenting all platform dependent lock primitive implementations.) It is also possible to toggle the two lockdep features at runtime using: /proc/sys/kernel/prove_locking /proc/sys/kernel/lock_stat (esp. turning off the O(n^2) prove_locking functionaliy can help) [akpm@linux-foundation.org: build fixes] [akpm@linux-foundation.org: nuke unneeded ifdefs] Signed-off-by: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Acked-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Acked-by: Jason Baron <jbaron@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

2007-07-16vsprintf.c: optimizing, part 2: base 10 conversion speedup, v2Denis Vlasenko
Optimize integer-to-string conversion in vsprintf.c for base 10. This is by far the most used conversion, and in some use cases it impacts performance. For example, top reads /proc/$PID/stat for every process, and with 4000 processes decimal conversion alone takes noticeable time. Using code from http://www.cs.uiowa.edu/~jones/bcd/decimal.html (with permission from the author, Douglas W. Jones) binary-to-decimal-string conversion is done in groups of five digits at once, using only additions/subtractions/shifts (with -O2; -Os throws in some multiply instructions). On i386 arch gcc 4.1.2 -O2 generates ~500 bytes of code. This patch is run tested. Userspace benchmark/test is also attached. I tested it on PIII and AMD64 and new code is generally ~2.5 times faster.

2007-07-16vsprintf.c: optimizing, part 1 (easy and obvious stuff)Denis Vlasenko
* There is no point in having full "0...9a...z" constant vector, if we use only "0...9a...f" (and "x" for "0x"). * Post-decrement usually needs a few more instructions, so use pre decrement instead where makes sense: -       while (i < precision--) { +       while (i <= --precision) { * if base != 10 (=> base 8 or 16), we can avoid using division in a loop and use mask/shift, obtaining much faster conversion. (More complex optimization for base 10 case is in the second patch). Overall, size vsprintf.o shows ~80 bytes smaller text section with this patch applied.

2007-07-16generic bug: use show_regs() instead of dump_stack()Heiko Carstens
The current generic bug implementation has a call to dump_stack() in case a WARN_ON(whatever) gets hit. Since report_bug(), which calls dump_stack(), gets called from an exception handler we can do better: just pass the pt_regs structure to report_bug() and pass it to show_regs() in case of a warning. This will give more debug informations like register contents, etc... In addition this avoids some pointless lines that dump_stack() emits, since it includes a stack backtrace of the exception handler which is of no interest in case of a warning. E.g. on s390 the following lines are currently always present in a stack backtrace if dump_stack() gets called from report_bug(): [<000000000001517a>] show_trace+0x92/0xe8) [<0000000000015270>] show_stack+0xa0/0xd0 [<00000000000152ce>] dump_stack+0x2e/0x3c [<0000000000195450>] report_bug+0x98/0xf8 [<0000000000016cc8>] illegal_op+0x1fc/0x21c [<00000000000227d6>] sysc_return+0x0/0x10 Acked-by: Jeremy Fitzhardinge <jeremy@goop.org> Acked-by: Haavard Skinnemoen <hskinnemoen@atmel.com> Cc: Andi Kleen <ak@suse.de> Cc: Kyle McMartin <kyle@parisc-linux.org> Cc: Paul Mackerras <paulus@samba.org> Cc: Paul Mundt <lethal@linux-sh.org> Cc: Martin Schwidefsky <schwidefsky@de.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Heiko Carstens <heiko.carstens@de.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

This is a rather bizarre thing to have inlined in io.h. Stick it in lib/ instead. While we're there, despaghetti it a bit, and fix its off-by-one behaviour when passed a zero length.

2007-07-16percpu_counters(): use cpu notifiersAndrew Morton
per-cpu counters presently must iterate over all possible CPUs in the exhaustive percpu_counter_sum(). But it can be much better to only iterate over the presently-online CPUs. To do this, we must arrange for an offlined CPU's count to be spilled into the counter's central count. We can do this for all percpu_counters in the machine by linking them into a single global list and walking that list at CPU_DEAD time. (I hope. Might have race windows in which the percpu_counter_sum() count is inaccurate?)

2007-07-16SLUB: support slub_debug on by defaultChristoph Lameter
Add a new configuration variable CONFIG_SLUB_DEBUG_ON If set then the kernel will be booted by default with slab debugging switched on. Similar to CONFIG_SLAB_DEBUG. By default slab debugging is available but must be enabled by specifying "slub_debug" as a kernel parameter. Also add support to switch off slab debugging for a kernel that was built with CONFIG_SLUB_DEBUG_ON. This works by specifying slub_debug=- as a kernel parameter.
