2008-03-28driver core: fix small mem leak in driver_add_kobj()Jesper Juhl
The Coverity checker spotted that we leak the storage allocated to 'name' in int driver_add_kobj(). The leak looks legit to me - this is the code : int driver_add_kobj(struct device_driver *drv, struct kobject *kobj, const char *fmt, ...) { va_list args; char *name; int ret; va_start(args, fmt); name = kvasprintf(GFP_KERNEL, fmt, args); ^^^^^^^^ This dynamically allocates space... va_end(args); if (!name) return -ENOMEM; return kobject_add(kobj, &drv->p->kobj, "%s", name); ^^^^^^^^ This neglects to free the space allocated } Inside kobject_add() a copy of 'name' will be made and used. As far as I can see, Coverity is correct in flagging this as a leak, but I'd like some configmation before the patch is applied. This should fix it.

2008-03-28dm crypt: fix ctx pendingMilan Broz
Fix regression in dm-crypt introduced in commit 3a7f6c990ad04e6f576a159876c602d14d6f7fef ("dm crypt: use async crypto"). If write requests need to be split into pieces, the code must not process them in parallel because the crypto context cannot be shared. So there can be parallel crypto operations on one part of the write, but only one write bio can be processed at a time. This is not optimal and the workqueue code needs to be optimized for parallel processing, but for now it solves the problem without affecting the performance of synchronous crypto operation (most of current dm-crypt users). http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10242 http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10207 Signed-off-by: Milan Broz <mbroz@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Alasdair G Kergon <agk@redhat.com> Cc: "Rafael J.

2008-03-28pci: revert SMBus unhide on HP Compaq nx6110Jean Delvare
This reverts commit 3c0a654e390d00fef9d8faed758f5e1e8078adb5 and fixes kernel bug #10245: http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10245 The HP Compaq nc6120 has the same PCI sub-device ID as the nx6110, and the SMBus is used by ACPI for thermal management on the nc6120, so Linux should not attach a native driver to it. This means that this quirk is unsafe and has to be removed. I also added a comment to help developers realize that adding new IDs to this SMBus unhiding quirk table should be done only with great care, and in particular only after checking that ACPI is not making use of the SMBus.

2008-03-28ixp4xx-beeper: add MODULE_ALIASAlessandro Zummo
The following patch allows ixp4xx-beeper to be loaded by udev automatically when compiled as a module with kernel versions 2.4.24 and greater. This patch is required because 43cc71eed1250755986da4c0f9898f9a635cb3bf ("platform: prefix MODALIAS with "platform:"") changed the modalias string to have the extra prefix. LKG7102D7:~# udevinfo -a -p /sys/devices/platform/ixp4xx-beeper.4 looking at device '/devices/platform/ixp4xx-beeper.4': KERNEL=="ixp4xx-beeper.4" SUBSYSTEM=="platform" DRIVER=="" ATTR{modalias}=="platform:ixp4xx-beeper" udev therefore tries to modprobe platform:ixp4xx-beeper instead of ixp4xx-beeper.

2008-03-28update checkpatch.pl to version 0.16Andy Whitcroft
This version brings proper quote tracking across lines, and brings the handling of comments into the same mechanism ensuring nesting is correctly handled. It brings the usual flurry of fixes for false positives. It also brings a number of new checks. The most contentious change will likely be the checks for NR_CPUS as this throws some new warnings in kernel/sched.c. Of note: - all new quote tracking across lines - all new comment tracking - new more direct, less ambigious wording for some warnings - recommends mutexes and completions over semaphores - recommends strict_strto* over simple_strto* - report on direct use of NR_CPUS Andy Whitcroft (22): Version: 0.16 string quote tracking should cross line boundaries check spacing round -> correctly across newlines checks for linux/ against asm/ include files should be warnings standardise on 'required' and 'prohibited' take the first end of condition when parsing statements values: cope with unbalanced brackets preprocessor #elif is not a function preprocessor #if should not trigger trailing statement checks test: allow us to limit output to a single error recommend real mutexes over semaphores asm checks should mirror those for __asm__ warn on semaphores being used in place of completions trailing ; on control structure should ignore do {} while (); recommend strict_strtoX over simple_strtoX redo comment handling as a quote type use of NR_CPUS is normally wrong consistant spacing should only be about spaces if brace check suppression should only apply to the top-levels use tr/// to align spacing for operators move to using four parameter form of substr check and report modifications to include/asm Signed-off-by: Andy Whitcroft <apw@shadowen.org> Cc: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

2008-03-28RDMA/cxgb3: Program hardware IRD with correct valueRoland Dreier
Because of a typo in iwch_accept_cr(), the cxgb3 connection handling code programs the hardware IRD (incoming RDMA read queue depth) with the value that is passed in for the ORD (outgoing RDMA read queue depth). In particular this means that if an application passes in IRD > 0 and ORD = 0 (which is a completely sane and valid thing to do for an app that expects only incoming RDMA read requests), then the hardware will end up programmed with IRD = 0 and the app will fail in a mysterious way. Fix this by using "ep->ird" instead of "ep->ord" in the intended place.

2008-03-28[POWERPC] Fix missed hardware breakpoints across multiple threadsMichael Ellerman
There is a bug in the powerpc DABR (data access breakpoint) handling, which can result in us missing breakpoints if several threads are trying to break on the same address. The circumstances are that do_page_fault() calls do_dabr(), this clears the DABR (sets it to 0) and sets up the signal which will report to userspace that the DABR was hit. The do_signal() code will restore the DABR value on the way out to userspace. If we reschedule before calling do_signal(), __switch_to() will check the cached DABR value and compare it to the new thread's value, if they match we don't set the DABR in hardware. So if two threads have the same DABR value, and we schedule from one to the other after taking the interrupt for the first thread hitting the DABR, the second thread will run without the DABR set in hardware. The cleanest fix is to move the cache update into set_dabr(), that way we can't forget to do it.
