2013-12-09tty: Halve flip buffer GFP_ATOMIC memory consumptionPeter Hurley
tty flip buffers use GFP_ATOMIC allocations for received data which is to be processed by the line discipline. For each byte received, an extra byte is used to indicate the error status of that byte. Instead, if the received data is error-free, encode the entire buffer without status bytes.

2013-12-08tty: Remove tty_prepare_flip_string_flags()Peter Hurley

2013-12-08tty: Enable configurable tty flip buffer limitPeter Hurley
Allow driver to configure its maximum flip buffer memory consumption/limit. This is necessary for very-high speed line rates (in excess of 10MB/sec) because the flip buffers can be saturated before the line discipline has a chance to throttle the input.

2013-07-23tty: Fix unsafe vt paste_selection()Peter Hurley
Convert the tty_buffer_flush() exclusion mechanism to a public interface - tty_buffer_lock/unlock_exclusive() - and use the interface to safely write the paste selection to the line discipline.

2013-07-23tty: Track flip buffer memory limit atomicallyPeter Hurley
Lockless flip buffers require atomically updating the bytes-in-use watermark. The pty driver also peeks at the watermark value to limit memory consumption to a much lower value than the default; query the watermark with new fn, tty_buffer_space_avail().

2013-07-23tty: Compute flip buffer ptrsPeter Hurley
The char_buf_ptr and flag_buf_ptr values are trivially derived from the .data field offset; compute values as needed. Fixes a long-standing type-mismatch with the char and flag ptrs.

2013-01-15TTY: switch tty_schedule_flipJiri Slaby
Now, we start converting tty buffer functions to actually use tty_port. This will allow us to get rid of the need of tty in many call sites. Only tty_port will needed and hence no more tty_port_tty_get in those paths. This is the last one: tty_schedule_flip Signed-off-by: Jiri Slaby <jslaby@suse.cz> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org>
2013-01-15TTY: switch tty_flip_buffer_pushJiri Slaby
Now, we start converting tty buffer functions to actually use tty_port. This will allow us to get rid of the need of tty in many call sites. Only tty_port will needed and hence no more tty_port_tty_get in those paths. Now, the one where most of tty_port_tty_get gets removed: tty_flip_buffer_push. IOW we also closed all the races in drivers not using tty_port_tty_get at all yet. Also we move tty_flip_buffer_push declaration from include/linux/tty.h to include/linux/tty_flip.h to all others while we are changing it anyway.

2006-06-28[PATCH] remove active field from tty buffer structurePaul Fulghum
Remove 'active' field from tty buffer structure. This was added in 2.6.16 as part of a patch to make the new tty buffering SMP safe. This field is unnecessary with the more intelligently written flush_to_ldisc that adds receive_room handling. Removing this field reverts to simpler logic where the tail buffer is always the 'active' buffer, which should not be freed by flush_to_ldisc. (active == buffer being filled with new data) The result is simpler, smaller, and faster tty buffer code.

2006-02-10[PATCH] tty buffering stall fixPaul Fulghum
Prevent stalled processing of received data when a driver allocates tty buffer space but does not immediately follow the allocation with more data and a call to schedule receive tty processing.

2006-02-03[PATCH] new tty buffering locking fixPaul Fulghum
Change locking in the new tty buffering facility from using tty->read_lock, which is currently ignored by drivers and thus ineffective. New locking uses a new tty buffering specific lock enforced centrally in the tty buffering code. Two drivers (esp and cyclades) are updated to use the tty buffering functions instead of accessing tty buffering internals directly. This is required for the new locking to work.

2006-01-10[PATCH] TTY layer buffering revampAlan Cox
The API and code have been through various bits of initial review by serial driver people but they definitely need to live somewhere for a while so the unconverted drivers can get knocked into shape, existing drivers that have been updated can be better tuned and bugs whacked out. This replaces the tty flip buffers with kmalloc objects in rings. In the normal situation for an IRQ driven serial port at typical speeds the behaviour is pretty much the same, two buffers end up allocated and the kernel cycles between them as before. When there are delays or at high speed we now behave far better as the buffer pool can grow a bit rather than lose characters. This also means that we can operate at higher speeds reliably. For drivers that receive characters in blocks (DMA based, USB and especially virtualisation) the layer allows a lot of driver specific code that works around the tty layer with private secondary queues to be removed. The IBM folks need this sort of layer, the smart serial port people do, the virtualisers do (because a virtualised tty typically operates at infinite speed rather than emulating 9600 baud). Finally many drivers had invalid and unsafe attempts to avoid buffer overflows by directly invoking tty methods extracted out of the innards of work queue structs. These are no longer needed and all go away. That fixes various random hangs with serial ports on overflow. The other change in here is to optimise the receive_room path that is used by some callers. It turns out that only one ldisc uses receive room except asa constant and it updates it far far less than the value is read. We thus make it a variable not a function call. I expect the code to contain bugs due to the size alone but I'll be watching and squashing them and feeding out new patches as it goes. Because the buffers now dynamically expand you should only run out of buffering when the kernel runs out of memory for real. That means a lot of the horrible hacks high performance drivers used to do just aren't needed any more. Description: tty_insert_flip_char is an old API and continues to work as before, as does tty_flip_buffer_push() [this is why many drivers dont need modification]. It does now also return the number of chars inserted There are also tty_buffer_request_room(tty, len) which asks for a buffer block of the length requested and returns the space found. This improves efficiency with hardware that knows how much to transfer. and tty_insert_flip_string_flags(tty, str, flags, len) to insert a string of characters and flags For a smart interface the usual code is len = tty_request_buffer_room(tty, amount_hardware_says); tty_insert_flip_string(tty, buffer_from_card, len); More description! At the moment tty buffers are attached directly to the tty. This is causing a lot of the problems related to tty layer locking, also problems at high speed and also with bursty data (such as occurs in virtualised environments) I'm working on ripping out the flip buffers and replacing them with a pool of dynamically allocated buffers. This allows both for old style "byte I/O" devices and also helps virtualisation and smart devices where large blocks of data suddenely materialise and need storing. So far so good. Lots of drivers reference tty->flip.*. Several of them also call directly and unsafely into function pointers it provides. This will all break. Most drivers can use tty_insert_flip_char which can be kept as an API but others need more. At the moment I've added the following interfaces, if people think more will be needed now is a good time to say int tty_buffer_request_room(tty, size) Try and ensure at least size bytes are available, returns actual room (may be zero). At the moment it just uses the flipbuf space but that will change. Repeated calls without characters being added are not cumulative. (ie if you call it with 1, 1, 1, and then 4 you'll have four characters of space. The other functions will also try and grow buffers in future but this will be a more efficient way when you know block sizes. int tty_insert_flip_char(tty, ch, flag) As before insert a character if there is room. Now returns 1 for success, 0 for failure. int tty_insert_flip_string(tty, str, len) Insert a block of non error characters. Returns the number inserted. int tty_prepare_flip_string(tty, strptr, len) Adjust the buffer to allow len characters to be added. Returns a buffer pointer in strptr and the length available. This allows for hardware that needs to use functions like insl or mencpy_fromio.

2005-04-16Linux-2.6.12-rc2v2.6.12-rc2Linus Torvalds
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!
