2012-09-14ARM: ep93xx: move platform_data definitionsArnd Bergmann
Platform data for device drivers should be defined in include/linux/platform_data/*.h, not in the architecture and platform specific directories.

Pull networking update from David Miller: "A couple weeks of bug fixing in there. The largest chunk is all the broken crap Amerigo Wang found in the netpoll layer." 1) netpoll and it's users has several serious bugs: a) uses GFP_KERNEL with locks held b) interfaces requiring interrupts disabled are called with them enabled c) and vice versa d) VLAN tag demuxing, as per all other RX packet input paths, is not applied All from Amerigo Wang. 2) Hopefully cure the ipv4 mapped ipv6 address TCP early demux bugs for good, from Neal Cardwell. 3) Unlike AF_UNIX, AF_PACKET sockets don't set a default credentials when the user doesn't specify one explicitly during sendmsg(). Instead we attach an empty (zero) SCM credential block which is definitely not what we want. Fix from Eric Dumazet. 4) IPv6 illegally invokes netdevice notifiers with RCU lock held, fix from Ben Hutchings. 5) inet_csk_route_child_sock() checks wrong inet options pointer, fix from Christoph Paasch. 6) When AF_PACKET is used for transmit, packet loopback doesn't behave properly when a socket fanout is enabled, from Eric Leblond. 7) On bluetooth l2cap channel create failure, we leak the socket, from Jaganath Kanakkassery. 8) Fix all the netprio file handling bugs found by Al Viro, from John Fastabend. 9) Several error return and NULL deref bug fixes in networking drivers from Julia Lawall. 10) A large smattering of struct padding et al. kernel memory leaks to userspace found of Mathias Krause. 11) Conntrack expections in netfilter can access an uninitialized timer, fix from Pablo Neira Ayuso. 12) Several netfilter SIP tracker bug fixes from Patrick McHardy. 13) IPSEC ipv6 routes are not initialized correctly all the time, resulting in an OOPS in inet_putpeer(). Also from Patrick McHardy. 14) Bridging does rcu_dereference() outside of RCU protected area, from Stephen Hemminger. 15) Fix routing cache removal performance regression when looking up output routes that have a local destination.

Pull ARM DMA engine updates from Russell King: "This looks scary at first glance, but what it is is: - a rework of the sa11x0 DMA engine driver merged during the previous cycle, to extract a common set of helper functions for DMA engine implementations. - conversion of amba-pl08x.c to use these helper functions. - addition of OMAP DMA engine driver (using these helper functions), and conversion of some of the OMAP DMA users to use DMA engine. Nothing in the helper functions is ARM specific, so I hope that other implementations can consolidate some of their code by making use of these helpers. This has been sitting in linux-next most of the merge cycle, and has been tested by several OMAP folk. I've tested it on sa11x0 platforms, and given it my best shot on my broken platforms which have the amba-pl08x controller. The last point is the addition to feature-removal-schedule.txt, which will have a merge conflict. Between myself and TI, we're planning to remove the old TI DMA implementation next year."

Pull VFIO core from Alex Williamson: "This series includes the VFIO userspace driver interface for the 3.6 kernel merge window. This driver is intended to provide a secure interface for device access using IOMMU protection for applications like assignment of physical devices to virtual machines. Qemu will be the first user of this interface, enabling assignment of PCI devices to Qemu guests. This interface is intended to eventually replace the x86-specific assignment mechanism currently available in KVM. This interface has the advantage of being more secure, by working with IOMMU groups to ensure device isolation and providing it's own filtered resource access mechanism, and also more flexible, in not being x86 or KVM specific (extensions to enable POWER are already working). This driver is originally the work of Tom Lyon, but has since been handed over to me and gone through a complete overhaul thanks to the input from David Gibson, Ben Herrenschmidt, Chris Wright, Joerg Roedel, and others. This driver has been available in linux-next for the last month." Paul Mackerras says: "I would be glad to see it go in since we want to use it with KVM on PowerPC.

2012-07-31mm: add support for a filesystem to activate swap files and use direct_IO ↵Mel Gorman
for writing swap pages Currently swapfiles are managed entirely by the core VM by using ->bmap to allocate space and write to the blocks directly. This effectively ensures that the underlying blocks are allocated and avoids the need for the swap subsystem to locate what physical blocks store offsets within a file. If the swap subsystem is to use the filesystem information to locate the blocks, it is critical that information such as block groups, block bitmaps and the block descriptor table that map the swap file were resident in memory. This patch adds address_space_operations that the VM can call when activating or deactivating swap backed by a file. int swap_activate(struct file *); int swap_deactivate(struct file *); The ->swap_activate() method is used to communicate to the file that the VM relies on it, and the address_space should take adequate measures such as reserving space in the underlying device, reserving memory for mempools and pinning information such as the block descriptor table in memory. The ->swap_deactivate() method is called on sys_swapoff() if ->swap_activate() returned success. After a successful swapfile ->swap_activate, the swapfile is marked SWP_FILE and swapper_space.a_ops will proxy to sis->swap_file->f_mappings->a_ops using ->direct_io to write swapcache pages and ->readpage to read. It is perfectly possible that direct_IO be used to read the swap pages but it is an unnecessary complication. Similarly, it is possible that ->writepage be used instead of direct_io to write the pages but filesystem developers have stated that calling writepage from the VM is undesirable for a variety of reasons and using direct_IO opens up the possibility of writing back batches of swap pages in the future.

The number of ptes and swap entries are used in the oom killer's badness heuristic, so they should be shown in the tasklist dump. This patch adds those fields and replaces cpu and oom_adj values that are currently emitted. Cpu isn't interesting and oom_adj is deprecated and will be removed later this year, the same information is already displayed as oom_score_adj which is used internally. At the same time, make the documentation a little more clear to state this information is helpful to determine why the oom killer chose the task it did to kill.

That's not all though: another[2] small fixup for thermal subsystem was needed to get rid of a warning in power supply subsystem (the warning was not drivers/power's "fault", the thermal registration function just needed a proper const annotation, which is also done by a small commit on top of the merge. So, to sum this up: - The 'master' branch of the battery tree was in the -next tree for weeks, was never rebased, altered etc. It should be all OK; - Although, for-v3.6 tag contains the 'master' branch + merge + the warning fix.

2012-07-31vfio: VFIO coreAlex Williamson
VFIO is a secure user level driver for use with both virtual machines and user level drivers. VFIO makes use of IOMMU groups to ensure the isolation of devices in use, allowing unprivileged user access. It's intended that VFIO will replace KVM device assignment and UIO drivers (in cases where the target platform includes a sufficiently capable IOMMU). New in this version of VFIO is support for IOMMU groups managed through the IOMMU core as well as a rework of the API, removing the group merge interface. We now go back to a model more similar to original VFIO with UIOMMU support where the file descriptor obtained from /dev/vfio/vfio allows access to the IOMMU, but only after a group is added, avoiding the previous privilege issues with this type of model. IOMMU support is also now fully modular as IOMMUs have vastly different interface requirements on different platforms. VFIO users are able to query and initialize the IOMMU model of their choice. Please see the follow-on Documentation commit for further description and usage example. Signed-off-by: Alex Williamson <alex.williamson@redhat.com>
