2006-01-14[PATCH] fix workqueue oops during cpu offlineNathan Lynch
Use first_cpu(cpu_possible_map) for the single-thread workqueue case. We used to hardcode 0, but that broke on systems where !cpu_possible(0) when workqueue_struct->cpu_workqueue_struct was changed from a static array to alloc_percpu. Commit id bce61dd49d6ba7799be2de17c772e4c701558f14 ("Fix hardcoded cpu=0 in workqueue for per_cpu_ptr() calls") fixed that for Ben's funky sparc64 system, but it regressed my Power5. Offlining cpu 0 oopses upon the next call to queue_work for a single-thread workqueue, because now we try to manipulate per_cpu_ptr(wq->cpu_wq, 1), which is uninitialized. So we need to establish an unchanging "slot" for single-thread workqueues which will have a valid percpu allocation. Since alloc_percpu keys off of cpu_possible_map, which must not change after initialization, make this slot == first_cpu(cpu_possible_map).

2006-01-14[PATCH] Fix onboard video on SPARC Blade 100 for 2.6.{13,14,15}Luis F. Ortiz
I have recently been switching from using 2.4.32 on my trusty old Sparc Blade 100 to using 2.6.15 . Some of the problems I ran into were distorted video when the console was active (missing first character, skipped dots) and when running X windows (colored snow, stripes, missing pixels). A quick examination of the 2.6 versus 2.4 source for the ATY driver revealed alot of changes. A closer look at the code/data for the 64GR/XL chip revealed two minor "typos" that the rewriter(s) of the code made. The first is a incorrect clock value (230 .vs. 235) and the second is a missing flag (M64F_SDRAM_MAGIC_PLL). Making both these changes seems to have fixed my problem. I tend to think the 235 value is the correct one, as there is a 29.4 Mhz clock crystal close to the video chip and 235.2 (29.4*8) is too close to 235 to make it a coincidence. The flag for M64F_SDRAM_MAGIC_PLL was dropped during the changes made by adaplas in file revision 1.72 on the old bitkeeper repository. The change relating to the clock rate has been there forever, at least in the 2.6 tree. I'm not sure where to look for the old 2.5 tree or if anyone cares when it happened. On SPARC Blades 100's, which use the ATY MACH64GR video chipset, the clock crystal frequency is 235.2 Mhz, not 230 Mhz. The chipset also requires the use of M64F_SDRAM_MAGIC_PLL in order to setup the PLL properly for the DRAM. Signed-off-by: Luis F. Ortiz <lfo@Polyad.Org> Signed-off-by: David S.

2006-01-14[PATCH] BRIDGE: Fix faulty check in br_stp_recalculate_bridge_id()Stephen Hemminger
There is a regression in 2.6.15. One of the conversions from memcmp to compare_ether_addr is incorrect. We need to do relative comparison to determine min MAC address to use in bridge id. This will cause the wrong bridge id to be chosen which violates 802.1d Spanning Tree Protocol, and may create forwarding loops.

2006-01-02[PATCH] Avoid namespace pollution in <asm/param.h>Dag-Erling Smørgrav
In commit 3D59121003721a8fad11ee72e646fd9d3076b5679c, the x86 and x86-64 <asm/param.h> was changed to include <linux/config.h> for the configurable timer frequency. However, asm/param.h is sometimes used in userland (it is included indirectly from <sys/param.h>), so your commit pollutes the userland namespace with tons of CONFIG_FOO macros. This greatly confuses software packages (such as BusyBox) which use CONFIG_FOO macros themselves to control the inclusion of optional features.

2006-01-02[PATCH] powerpc: more g5 overtemp problem fixBenjamin Herrenschmidt
Some G5s still occasionally experience shutdowns due to overtemp conditions despite the recent fix. After analyzing logs from such machines, it appears that the overtemp code is a bit too quick at shutting the machine down when reaching the critical temperature (tmax + 8) and doesn't leave the fan enough time to actually cool it down. This happens if the temperature of a CPU suddenly rises too high in a very short period of time, or occasionally on boot (that is the CPUs are already overtemp by the time the driver loads). This patches makes the code a bit more relaxed, leaving a few seconds to the fans to do their job before kicking the machine shutown.

2005-12-30[PATCH] Fix false old value return of sysctlYi Yang
For the sysctl syscall, if the user wants to get the old value of a sysctl entry and set a new value for it in the same syscall, the old value is always overwritten by the new value if the sysctl entry is of string type and if the user sets its strategy to sysctl_string. This issue lies in the strategy being run twice if the strategy is set to sysctl_string, the general strategy sysctl_string always returns 0 if success. Such strategy routines as sysctl_jiffies and sysctl_jiffies_ms return 1 because they do read and write for the sysctl entry. The strategy routine sysctl_string return 0 although it actually read and write the sysctl entry. According to my analysis, if a strategy routine do read and write, it should return 1, if it just does some necessary check but not read and write, it should return 0, for example sysctl_intvec.

Don't use printk() where "current_thread_info()" is crap. Until when we switch to running on init_stack, current_thread_info() evaluates to crap. Printk uses "current" at times (in detail, &current is evaluated with CONFIG_DEBUG_SPINLOCK to check the spinlock owner task). And this leads to random segmentation faults. Exactly, what happens is that &current = *(current_thread_info()), i.e. round down $esp and dereference the value. I.e. access the stack below $esp, which causes SIGSEGV on a VM_GROWSDOWN vma (see arch/i386/mm/fault.c).

2005-12-27[PATCH] Fix more radeon GART start calculation casesBenjamin Herrenschmidt
As reported by Jules Villard <jvillard@ens-lyon.fr> and some others, the recent GART aperture start reconfiguration causes problems on some setups. What I _think_ might be happening is that the X server is also trying to muck around with the card memory map and is forcing it back into a wrong setting that also happens to no longer match what the DRM wants to do and blows up. There are bugs all over the place in that code (and still some bugs in the DRM as well anyway). This patch attempts to avoid that by using the largest of the 2 values, which I think will cause it to behave as it used to for you and will still fix the problem with machines that have an aperture size smaller than the video memory.

The below "jumbo" patch fixes the following problems in MLDv2. 1) Add necessary "ntohs" to recent "pskb_may_pull" check [breaks all nonzero source queries on little-endian (!)] 2) Add locking to source filter list [resend of prior patch] 3) fix "mld_marksources()" to a) send nothing when all queried sources are excluded b) send full exclude report when source queried sources are not excluded c) don't schedule a timer when there's nothing to report NOTE: RFC 3810 specifies the source list should be saved and each source reported individually as an IS_IN. This is an obvious DOS path, requiring the host to store and then multicast as many sources as are queried (e.g., millions...). This alternative sends a full, relevant report that's limited to number of sources present on the machine. 4) fix "add_grec()" to send empty-source records when it should The original check doesn't account for a non-empty source list with all sources inactive; the new code keeps that short-circuit case, and also generates the group header with an empty list if needed. 5) fix mca_crcount decrement to be after add_grec(), which needs its original value These issues (other than item #1 ;-) ) were all found by Yan Zheng, much thanks!
