2009-09-15ARM: 5701/1: ARM: copy_page.S: take into account the size of the cache lineKirill A. Shutemov
Optimized version of copy_page() was written with assumption that cache line size is 32 bytes. On Cortex-A8 cache line size is 64 bytes. This patch tries to generalize copy_page() to work with any cache line size if cache line size is multiple of 16 and page size is multiple of two cache line size. After this optimization we've got ~25% speedup on OMAP3(tested in userspace). There is test for kernelspace which trigger copy-on-write after fork(): #include <stdlib.h> #include <string.h> #include <unistd.h> #define BUF_SIZE (10000*4096) #define NFORK 200 int main(int argc, char **argv) { char *buf = malloc(BUF_SIZE); int i; memset(buf, 0, BUF_SIZE); for(i = 0; i < NFORK; i++) { if (fork()) { wait(NULL); } else { int j; for(j = 0; j < BUF_SIZE; j+= 4096) buf[j] = (j & 0xFF) + 1; break; } } free(buf); return 0; } Before optimization this test takes ~66 seconds, after optimization takes ~56 seconds.

2008-09-01[ARM] 5227/1: Add the ENDPROC declarations to the .S filesCatalin Marinas
This declaration specifies the "function" type and size for various assembly functions, mainly needed for generating the correct branch instructions in Thumb-2. Signed-off-by: Catalin Marinas <catalin.marinas@arm.com> Signed-off-by: Russell King <rmk+kernel@arm.linux.org.uk>

As for RETINSTR, LOADREGS is a left-over from the 26-bit days. Remove it. Signed-off-by: Russell King <rmk+kernel@arm.linux.org.uk>

Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
