2006-02-17[PATCH] select: time comparison fixesAndrew Morton
I got all of these backwards. We want to return min(input timeout, new timeout) to userspace to prevent increasing the time-remaining value.

2006-02-11[PATCH] select: fix returned timevalAndrew Morton
With David Woodhouse <dwmw2@infradead.org> select() presently has a habit of increasing the value of the user's `timeout' argument on return. We were writing back a timeout larger than the original. We _deliberately_ round up, since we know we must wait at _least_ as long as the caller asks us to. The patch adds a couple of helper functions for magnitude comparison of timespecs and of timevals, and uses them to prevent the various poll and select functions from returning a timeout which is larger than the one which was passed in. The patch also fixes a bug in compat_sys_pselect7(): it was adding the new timeout value to the old one and was returning that. It should just return the new timeout value. (We have various handy timespec/timeval-to-from-nsec conversion functions in time.h. But this code open-codes it all). Cc: "David S.

2006-01-18[PATCH] Add pselect/ppoll system call implementationDavid Woodhouse
The following implementation of ppoll() and pselect() system calls depends on the architecture providing a TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK flag in the thread_info. These system calls have to change the signal mask during their operation, and signal handlers must be invoked using the new, temporary signal mask. The old signal mask must be restored either upon successful exit from the system call, or upon returning from the invoked signal handler if the system call is interrupted. We can't simply restore the original signal mask and return to userspace, since the restored signal mask may actually block the signal which interrupted the system call. The TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK flag deals with this by causing the syscall exit path to trap into do_signal() just as TIF_SIGPENDING does, and by causing do_signal() to use the saved signal mask instead of the current signal mask when setting up the stack frame for the signal handler -- or by causing do_signal() to simply restore the saved signal mask in the case where there is no handler to be invoked. The first patch implements the sys_pselect() and sys_ppoll() system calls, which are present only if TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK is defined. That #ifdef should go away in time when all architectures have implemented it. The second patch implements TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK for the PowerPC kernel (in the -mm tree), and the third patch then removes the arch-specific implementations of sys_rt_sigsuspend() and replaces them with generic versions using the same trick. The fourth and fifth patches, provided by David Howells, implement TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK for FR-V and i386 respectively, and the sixth patch adds the syscalls to the i386 syscall table. This patch: Add the pselect() and ppoll() system calls, providing core routines usable by the original select() and poll() system calls and also the new calls (with their semantics w.r.t timeouts).

2005-09-09[PATCH] files: lock-free fd look-upDipankar Sarma
With the use of RCU in files structure, the look-up of files using fds can now be lock-free. The lookup is protected by rcu_read_lock()/rcu_read_unlock(). This patch changes the readers to use lock-free lookup.

2005-09-09[PATCH] files: break up files structDipankar Sarma
In order for the RCU to work, the file table array, sets and their sizes must be updated atomically. Instead of ensuring this through too many memory barriers, we put the arrays and their sizes in a separate structure. This patch takes the first step of putting the file table elements in a separate structure fdtable that is embedded withing files_struct. It also changes all the users to refer to the file table using files_fdtable() macro. Subsequent applciation of RCU becomes easier after this.

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!
