Na serwerach Kernel.org można już znaleźć kernel w wersji 2.5.70. Od wydania 2.5.69 upłynęło sporo czasu, ale ogrom poprawek usprawiedliwia tę zwłokę. Tradycyjnie zapraszamy do testowania i podsyłania raportów o błędach…

  Summary of changes from v2.5.69 to v2.5.70  ============================================      	[PATCH] PCI Hotplug: cpqphp 66/100/133MHz PCI-X support  	  	After being put on hold for a while (needed fixes to CCISS driver, etc) I  	attached a patch that adds pci-x support to the cpqphp driver in 2.5.65.  	  	Changes:  		Adds 66/100/133MHz PCI-X support.  		Adds support for dynamically chaning frequency and mode.  		Changes code to also blink the power LED when powering down.  		Uses the IRQ from PCI config space if the ROM resource table doesn't  		provide one (would previously use the same interrupt as the hotplug  		controller which would lead to bad things when trying to update routing  		tables). Dan Zink should have the credit for this fix.  		Changes find_slot() to cpqhp_find_slot().  		Uses sysfs to display speed/freq.  		Some documentation updates.      	[PATCH] patch: remove unnecessary proc stuff from controller struct      	[PATCH] PCI Hotplug: kernel-api docbook fix for now non-existant PCI hotplug  	  	Here is a trivial documentation fix for some of recent PCI hotplug changes  	that enables 'make htmldocs' to complete.      	Forward port of 2.4 ppc64 signal changes.      	Forward port of 2.4 ppc64 /proc/ppc64/systemcfg changes      	Catch illegal FP use within the kernel since it can cause data integrity errors in userland code.      	fix cpuid to physical id needed in 2.5      	Need to turn on RI immediately after we get control from firmware as  	well as when secondary cpus are started.      	ppc64: add autofs ioctl and clean up a prototype      	ppc64: xics cleanup      	add #ifdef CONFIG_XMON around a XMON variable reference      	ppc64: clean up some cpu feature checks      	ppc64: add spinlock to chrp_progress      	ppc64: fix NR_syscalls slip up      	ppc64: fix for recent module changes      	[SCTP] Optimize SACK generation.  	  	Wanted to try out profiling, so brought up oprofile.  Very   	suprising result of sctp_tsnmap_find_gap_ack() being one of the  	hot functions.  This should not be!  Short-circuit by not even   	calling if !has_gap.      	ppc64: return ENOSYS for unknown IPC call      	ppc64: restore hex progress code      	ppc64: Fix for outside of range sensor states, from John Rose      	[SCTP] Use Crypto API  	  	Rip out our own HMAC-SHA1 and replace with crypto API.    	Can now choose hmac-sha1, hmac-md5, or none with regards to what  	HMAC to use for cookie echo verification.      	[SCTP] Add wrappers for sctp with no crypto support.      	Change the callback argument for aic brace option parsing to u_long  	to avoid casting problems with different architectures.      	Aic79xx Driver Update (version 1.3.6)  	 o Correct bus hang on SE->LVD/LVD->SE tranceiver changes  	 o Close a race condition in handling bad scsi status that could  	   allow the driver to modify the waiting for selection queue while  	   selections were enabled.  	 o Perform an audit on use of del_timer() and switch to del_timer_sync()  	   where appropriate.  	 o Remove the reboot notifier hook which is unused in 2.5.X.  	 o Correct some driver unload bugs.      	Aic7xxx Driver Update (version 6.2.32)  	 o Perform an audit on use of del_timer() and switch to del_timer_sync()  	   where appropriate.  	 o Remove the reboot notifier hook which is unused in 2.5.X.  	 o Correct some driver unload bugs.      	[SCTP] Various code cleanup.  	  	More typedef removals and naming consistency.  	Remove sctp_association_t, sctp_endpoint_t, & sctp_endpoint_common_t.      	ppc64: segment misses from userspace must pass through do_page_fault      	ia64: Fix typos/whitespace related to serial code.      	[SCTP] Enable SctpChecksumErrors stat      	Aic79xx Driver Update  	 o Correct failed-wait recovery code so that the controller's registers  	   will not be accessed without pausing the controller first.      	[SCTP] Add a generic csum_copy for sctp.  	  	Do the sctp checksum while copying.       	[SCTP] short-circuit reassembly & ordering for best case.  	  	Short circuit normal case.  First check if the chunk belongs at the   	end of the queue.  If so, don't bother walking the entire list, just   	just put at end.       	ia64: Patch by Alex Williamson: forward port of the 2.4 sba_iommu.      	ia64: Merge Alex Williamson's sba_iommu patch.  		Various small 2.5.67 fixes.      	ia64: Make sba_iommu get detected early enough again.      	ppc64: use panic_on_oops sysctl      	ppc64: use dma-window from deepest device tree node, from Dave Engebretsen      	[SCTP] getsockname()/getpeername() support for TCP-style sockets.      	[SCTP]  Allow private to global association.  	  	The sctp scoping rules try to prevent accidentally sending  	non-routable addresses to a peer as alternate addresses.  However,  	the current implementation is way too strict in that one can't  	even try to send from a private address to a global address (a  	pretty common real world setup with host behind NAT) even   	when that's the _only_ address available.  	  	If we find no addresses available, try looking for a private address   	to send with, as a fallback.    	Additionally, if we are sending with only a single address, don't  	bother embedding this address in the INIT/INIT-ACK chunk.        	[SCTP] Use GFP_ATOMIC, while we holding the local_addr_lock.      	[PATCH] ia64: fix GENERIC build  	  	This fixes a couple problems with the generic target in the latest  	2.5.67 kernel.  First is simply a fix for the addition of readX in  	the machvec.  The second gets things to link in roughly the same order  	when using a generic vs zx1 flavor.  With the current code, sba_init()  	is called in the right place when using a zx1 flavor kernel, but  	happens way too early on a generic kernel.      	[PATCH] ia64: small ACPI fix  	  	This fix is needed to boot on Intel-based machines.      	[SCTP] Fix ipv6 addressing bug.  	  	We are incorrectly using the rt6->rt6i_dst as our destination  	address, resulting in bogus dst address when requiring a gateway.       	ia64: Update platform INIT handler to print a backtrace.      	[PATCH] ia64: don't waste irq vectors  	  	This patch fixes waste of interrupt vector pool by not  	allocating an interrupt vector to a GSI which has no corresponding  	IO SAPIC.      	ia64: Export hp_acpi_csr_space() for modules.      	ia64: Consolidate backtrace printing in a single routine (ia64_do_show_stack()).      	ia64: Fix _raw_read_lock() to not switch text sections.  Tidy it up with the  		help of ia64_fetchadd() macro.  Ditto for _raw_read_unlock().      	Driver model: doc updates.  	  	From Geert Uytterhoeven      	kobject: Add better debugging for failed registrations.  	  	From Steve Hemminger (shemminger@osdl.org)      	Device Driver Dynamic PCI Device IDs  	  	Provides a mechanism to pass new PCI device IDs to device drivers  	at runtime, rather than relying only on a static compiled-in list  	of supported IDs.  	  	For each driver which has a pci_driver->
probe routine, two things  	are added: a probe_it file, and a dynamic_id directory.  In the  	dynamic_id directory is a new file, new_id.  	  	/sys/bus/pci/drivers/e100  	|-- dynamic_id  	|   `-- new_id  	`-- probe_it  	  	One may read the new_id file, which by default returns:  	$ cat new_id  	echo vendor device subvendor subdevice class classmask  	where each field is a 32-bit value in ABCD (hex) format (no leading 0x).  	Pass only as many fields as you need to override the defaults below.  	Default vendor, device, subvendor, and subdevice fields  	are set to FFFFFFFF (PCI_ANY_ID).  	Default class and classmask fields are set to 0.  	  	One may write new PCI device IDs into the new_id file:  	echo "8086 1229" > new_id  	  	which will cause a new device ID (sysfs name 0) to be added to the driver.  	  	/sys/bus/pci/drivers/e100  	|-- dynamic_id  	|   |-- 0  	|   `-- new_id  	`-- probe_it  	  	$ cat 0  	00008086 00001229 ffffffff ffffffff 00000000 00000000  	  	One can then cause the driver to probe for devices again.  	echo 1 > probe_it  	  	Individual device drivers may override the behavior of the new_id  	file, for instance, if they need to also pass driver-specific  	information.  Likewise, reading the individual dynamic ID files  	can be overridden by the driver.  	  	This also adds an existance test field to struct driver_attribute,  	necessary because we only want the probe_it file to appear iff  	struct pci_driver->probe is non-NULL.  	  	The device probing routines in pci-driver.c are enhanced to scan  	first the static list of IDs, then the dynamic list (if any).  	      	sysfs: Rewrite binary file handling.   	  	From Matthew Wilcox.  	  	 - Remove sysfs_bin_buffer.  It's a security hole.  	 - Remove checks for permissions; the VFS does that.  	 - Validate offset & count at the top level.  	 - Allow lower levels to return less data than was asked for.  	 - Allocate buffer at open & free it at close, not on each read/write.  	      	[SCTP] shutdown() support for TCP-style sockets.      	ia64: Patch by Arun Sharma: In brl_emu.c, a 64 bit value was being assigned to an  		int.      	[PATCH] ia64: make x86 shared programs work again  	  	> It looks like dynamic x86 binaries have a problem once again (or  	> still).  If I try to run any shared x86 binaries, I get:  	>   	>       $ ls.x86  	>       ls.x86: error while loading shared libraries: librt.so.1: cannot map zero-fill pages: Error 14  	>   	> Would someone take a look?  	  	We saw this behavior with 2.5.59 also. The attached work around should  	take care of the problem temporarily. Last time this happened, IA-32  	programs were doing mmaps, whose size was one page bigger than the  	size of the underlying file (even after rounding up the file size).  	  	I never got a chance to figure out why glibc was doing mmaps with the  	wrong size. Also, I failed to reproduce the problem with a more  	recent (RH 8.0) glibc.  	  	Which version of IA-32 glibc were you using ?      	[SCTP]  More typedef removals.  	  	Continue typedef removal.  Also, change sctp_chunk.num_times_sent  	counter to a resent flag.  There was a rather obscure, unlikely,  	and in the end fairly benign bug sitting there if num_times_sent   	wrapped.  However, there's no need to keep this counter, as its  	use was really just to know if we'd ever resent this chunk.       	[PATCH] ia64: sba_iommu workaround removal  	  	This removes a workaround for some broken firmware that was  	never released.      	[PATCH] ia64: sba_iommu vendor/function for unknown IOCs  	  	Include id when encountering unknown IOC.      	[PATCH] ia64: sba_iommu trivial cleanup  	  	This is mostly trivial whitespace and printk text tweaks.  I did add the  	segment number to a printk that previously just had the bus.      	ppc64: chrp_progress() updates from Olof Johansson      	ppc64: ethtool -e support, from Olof Johansson      	[SCTP] Handle accept() of a CLOSED association.      	[SCTP]  Track partially acked message for SEND_FAILED.  	  	For SEND_FAILED support, we need to keep around data chunk fragments  	that have been acked, where other fragments of the same message  	have not.  With this, Ardelle should be able to finish up the  	SEND_FAILED support.       	[SCTP] Fix sctp_sendmsg error path when associate fails.      	[SCTP] Return a readable event when polling on a TCP-style listening  	       socket with a non-empty accept queue.      	[SCTP] Add some macros to clean up code.  	  	sctp_state(asoc, STATE)  // Is asoc in this state?  	sctp_style(sk, STYLE)    // Is sock this style?  	sctp_sstate(sk, SS_STATE) // Is sock in this state?      	[SCTP]  Add SCTP_MAXSEG sockopt.  	  	We'll fragment (if fragmentation not disabled) to the min of maxseg  	or PMTU allowance.        	[SCTP]  Add SFR-CACC support.  (Ardelle.Fan)  	  	Submitted by Ardelle Fan.  Implementation of Split Fast Retransmit -  	Changeover Aware Congestion Control.  Certain conditions involving  	multihoming changover can result in TCP-unfriendliness.  This  	implements the IETF proposed method of dealing with this corner  	case.      	ppc64: update ppc64 to new IRQ API from Andrew Morton      	ppc64: fix some compile warnings, from Andrew Morton      	ppc64: Fix some things that got backed out in the systemcfg merge      	ppc64: Add loop_get_status64/loop_set_status64      	[CPUFREQ] Fix powernow-k7 hang.  	Some laptops don't like jumping from (for eg) 800MHz->1200MHz, but  	will happily go from 800->1000->1200. The problem is caused by us  	changing the FID and the VID at the same time. The spec says we have  	to change them seperately. This actually buys us something extra anyway,  	as we can now set the FID lazily as well as the VID.      	[SCTP] Fix regression in mark_missing.  (Ardelle.Fan)  	  	Followup patch by Ardelle.       	ppc64: Andrew Morton is picking on me      	Aic7xxx and Aic79xx driver Update  	o Avoid pre-2.5.X mid-layer deadlock due to SCSI malloc fragmentation  	  	For pre-2.5.X kernels, attempt to calculate a safe value  	for our S/G list length.  In these kernels, the midlayer  	allocates an S/G array dynamically when a command is issued  	using SCSI malloc.  This list, which is in an OS dependent  	format that must later be copied to our private S/G list, is  	sized to house just the number of segments needed for the  	current transfer.  Since the code that sizes the SCSI malloc  	pool does not take into consideration fragmentation of the  	pool, executing transactions numbering just a fraction of our  	concurrent transaction limit with list lengths aproaching  	AH?_NSEG in length will quickly depleat the SCSI malloc pool  	of usable space.  	  	Unfortunately, the mid-layer does not properly handle this  	scsi malloc failure.  In kernels prior to 2.4.20, should  	the device that experienced the malloc failure be idle and  	never have any new I/O initiated (block queue is not "kicked"),  	the process will hang indefinitely.  In 2.4.20 and beyond,  	the disk experiencing the failure is marked as a "starved  	device", but this only helps if I/O is initiated to or completes  	on that HBA.  If the failure was induced by another HBA, and  	no other I/O is pending on the HBA and no new transactions are  	queued, we are still succeptible to the hang.  (Also note that  	many 2.4.X kernels do not properly lock the "some_device_starved"  	and "device_starved" fields calling into question their overall  	effectiveness).  	  	By sizing our S/G list to avoid SCSI malloc pool fragmentation,  	we will hopefully avoid this deadlock at least for configurations  	where our own HBAs are the only ones using the SCSI subsys
tem.      	Aic7xxx and Aic79xx Driver Update  	 o Correct channel information in our /proc output.      	Aic7xxx and Aic79xx driver updates  	 o Work around peculiarities in the scan_scsis routines  	   that could, due to having duplicate devices on our  	   host's device list, cause tagged queing to be disabled  	   for devices added via /proc.      	Aic7xxx and Aic79xx driver updates  	 o Remove extra complexity and code duplication in processing  	   the completeq now that the completeq can be run while holding  	   both the ah?_lock and the done_lock.      	Aic7xxx and Aic79xx driver Update  	 o Fix style nits.      	Aic7xxx and Aic79xx Driver Updates  	 o Correct type safty of option parsing logic  	 o Make option toggling work correctly  	 o Add "probe_eisa_vlb" as an alias for the "no_probe" option so  	   that there is a clearly defined name associated with the command  	   line feature that allows eisa_vlb probes to be enabled/disabled  	   in the aic7xxx driver.  	 o PCI parity error checking defaults to being enabled.      	Aic7xxx Driver Update  	 o Auto disable PCI parity error reporting after 10 parity errors  	   are observed.  The user is given a loud warning message telling  	   them that eiter a device plugged into their motherboard or their  	   motherboard is not very healthy.      	Aic79xx Driver Update  	 o Perform a few firmware optimizations  	 o Correct the packetized status handler so that  	   it can handle CRC errors during status data packets.      	ACPI: Update to 20030424  	- Remove an unused parameter from lowlevel read/write functions  	- FADT initialization cleanups      	Aic79xx Driver Update  	 o Correct "Unexpected PKT Busfree" error observed under high  	   tag loads.      	Aic79xx Driver Update  	 o Revert ahd_pause_and_flushwork() behavior so that ENSELO can  	   be cleared.  This makes ahd_pause_and_flushwork() more effective  	   when the bus is hung.      	Aic79xx Driver Upate  	 o Switch to handling bad SCSI status as a sequencer interrupt  	   instead of having the kernel proccess these failures via  	   the completion queue.  This is done because:  	  	    - The old scheme required us to pause the sequencer and clear  	      critical sections for each SCB.  It seems that these pause  	      actions, if coincident with a sequencer FIFO interrupt, would  	      result in a FIFO interrupt getting lost or directing to the  	      wrong FIFO.  This caused hangs when the driver was stressed  	      under high "queue full" loads.  	    - The completion code assumed that it was always called with  	      the sequencer running.  This may not be the case in timeout  	      processing where completions occur manually via  	      ahd_pause_and_flushwork().  	    - With this scheme, the extra expense of clearing critical  	      sections is avoided since the sequencer will only self pause  	      once all pending selections have cleared and it is not in  	      a critical section.      	ppc64: remove numa_node_exists, from Martin Bligh      	aic7xxx_osm.h, aic7xxx_osm.c, aic79xx_osm.h, aic79xx_osm.c:  	  Remove pre-2.2.X kernel support.       	ppc64: clear up the cpu<-> node mappings, and cache them, from Matt Dobson      	Aic79xx and Aic7xxx driver Update  	 o Fix build on 2.5.X      	Aic7xxx and Aic79xx Driver Updates  	 o Adapt to new IRQ handler declaration/behavior for 2.5.X      	[SCTP] Control chunk bundling.  	  	Control chunks should be bundled (implementor's guide advises  	specifically of case were ERROR should be bundled with CE to avoid  	race condition.   Patch introduces a outq_cork/outq_uncork to  	immediate transferral of control chunks and then release to the  	packet bundling code.       	[AGPGART] Hammer GART can use generic enable routines now.      	[AGPGART] intel agp init cleanups.  	From Christoph Hellwig.  	(1) Kill the _setup functions - most of it can be nice, static  	    structs - the few remainders are handled better elsewhere  	(2) _one_ big switch in ->probe assigning these tables.  	  	Almost 200 lOC gone and it's even readable :)      	[AGPGART] Remove unneeded enums from intel gart driver.      	[AGPGART] Remove unused ALi enums.

Again from Christoph Hellwig.      	[AGPGART] Replace enum users with own methods.  	By introducing a few extra functions, we can kill off a few extra members  	of the enum. More work from Christoph Hellwig.      	[AGPGART] Merge NVIDIA nForce / nForce2 AGP driver.  	Based upon code written by NVIDIA for agpgart 2.4, forward ported and  	cleaned up slightly by me.

[AGPGART] Add more defines to kill off hardcoded values      	[AGPGART] Don't configure agp bridges more than once if there is >1 of them.      	[AGPGART] use symbols instead of hardcoded values in generic-3.0  	Lots more work to do here.      	[AGPGART] Convert several functions to return void.  	They only ever returned a single value.      	[AGPGART] Fall back to non-isochronous xfers if setting up isochronous xfers fails.      	[AGPGART] Fix typo that stopped nvidia GART driver being built      	[AGPGART] EXPORT_SYMBOL cleanups. Also move the global_cache_flush routine to generic.c      	[AGPGART] Move function description comments from headers to the code they document.      	[AGPGART] kdoc'ify some of the function header comments.      	[AGPGART] Move function prototypes to headers.      	[AGPGART] Misc backend source tidy up.      	[AGPGART] Remove semaphore abstraction.      	[AGPGART] i855PM support from Bill Nottingham.  	Mainly adding a PCI id, unfortunately, requires  	renaming the i855GM PCI ids to avoid name conflict. Also renames some  	of the i855GM constants from i855PM to i855GM.

[SCTP] Make fragmented messages know how to SEND_FAIL themselves.  	  	If a message were fragmented, it was getting SEND_FAILed in all  	sorts of random order or not at all.   Now each "message" tracks its  	own fragments and can SEND_FAIL itself and all its fragments.       	[CPUFREQ] Acer Aspire's have broken PST tables in one BIOS rev. DMI blacklist it.      	[ARM] Miscellaneous minor fixes.  	  	- comment fixes  	- remove unnecessary asm/proc-fns.h include  	- fix buggy compiler version traps      	[SCTP] Free up data chunks that don't get accepted by primitive_SEND.

[PATCH] kill pcmcia driver bind_info horror  	  	Currenty pcmcia drivers do a loop on their devices for issuing a  	SCSI_IOCTL_GET_IDLUN ioctl from kernelspace and passing dev->type  	to userspace so cardmgr can guess the the dev_t and find the  	device node of it.

[PATCH] scsi_requeuest_fn  	  	Okay, when doing some other stuff I looked over this one, and it's  	a bit confusing to read:  	  	 - using a goto completed where a simple break would be sufficient  	 - using for (;;) for a perfectly fine while loop  	 - ...  	  	but what's more interesting is that the spinlock handling in here,  	when we switch from sdev_lock/queue_lock to host_lock we  	do a spin_unlock_irq followed by a spin_lock_irqsave - but we  	we just enabled interrupts so the save isn't nessecary at all, even  	more we can just do spin_unlock/spin_lock when keeping them  	disabled.  Also we drop host_lock in the middle of this function,  	just to reacquire it a tad later in scsi_dispatch_cmd, but fixing  	that need a bit more thinking as there's another caller for  	scsi_dispatch_cmd.

I haven't  	seen the problem on 2.4, but a quick looks seems like it's potentially  	an issue there too.      	[PATCH] ia64: interrupt fixes/cleanup  	  	Here's some cleanups/fixes/changes for interrupts on 2.5.67 + ia64.  	Specifically:  	  	  - Cleanup some ugliness with polarity/trigger setup.  	  	  - Add iosapic_enable_intr() to set_rte on an interupt when the  	    device is enabled.  IMHO, we really only want to unmask RTEs  	    for PRTs we might actually use.  This moves the interrupt  	    distribution here too.  	  	  - When changing a vector from edge to level, call register_intr()  	    to do it so all the data structures get set correctly.  If we  	    have to guess how to setup an interupt and get it wrong, this  	    should close some holes in changing it back to the correct type.    	  	  - Register the HCDP interrupt in 8250_hcdp - this is where we have  	    to guess the polarity/trigger.  The real handler will get fixed  	    up via PCI setup or ACPI namespace serial support, this gets it  	    associated w/ the port at setup.  This should allow interrupts  	    to work when using builtin UARTs as console on HP Itanium2 boxes.      	[PATCH] ia64: multi-ioport space support  	  	This has been in my 2.4 BK tree for a while, but I should have  	posted it in case there's feedback from other people working  	on large machines.  So here it is, in four parts:  	  	  1  enhance __ia64_mk_io_addr(port)  	  2  enhance pcibios_scan_root to get multiple mem & io windows  	      from ACPI _CRS, and fixup all the resources  	  3  add support for /proc/iomem and /proc/ioports  	  4  trivial (whitespace, copyright, and move pcibios_fixup_device_resources  	       closer to related code)  	  	The current scheme is that IO ports are 64 bits, with the low 24  	bits being the port number within an IO port space, and the upper  	bits identifying the space.  There is currently a limit of 16  	spaces.      	[PATCH] ia64: multi-ioport space support (part 2 of 4)  	  	enhance pcibios_scan_root to get multiple mem & io windows from ACPI _CRS,  	and fixup all the resources      	[PATCH] ia64: multi-ioport space support (part 3 of 4)  	  	add support for /proc/iomem and /proc/ioports      	[PATCH] ia64: multi-ioport space support (part 3 of 4)  	  	trivial (whitespace, copyright, and move pcibios_fixup_device_resources  	closer to related code)      	[PATCH] ia64: new IOC recognition  	  	This is a trivial patch that makes sba_iommu recognize a new IOC.  	Only change is that it will print  	  	    IOC: sx1000 0.1 HPA 0xf8120002000 IOVA space 1024Mb at 0x80000000  	  	instead of  	  	    IOC: Unknown (103c:127c) 0.1 HPA 0xf8120002000 IOVA space 1024Mb  	at 0x80000000      	[PATCH] ia64: vendor-specific ACPI resource cleanup  	  	This is to  	  	  - handle _CRS with multiple vendor-specific resources  	  - use acpi_walk_resources() instead of doing it by hand  	  - make lookup of vendor resource by GUID generic  	  - cleanup now-unused helper functions  	  	(This depends on the previous IO port space patches, because  	they removed the last of acpi_get_addr_space()).  	  	My hope is that acpi_vendor_resource_match() and  	acpi_find_vendor_resource() can someday move into ACPI,  	but that probably depends on getting the idea of labelling  	vendor resources with a GUID into the spec.  HP does this  	and I think is working on putting it in the spec.      	[PATCH] ia64: fixes for semtimedop() ia32-compat handling  	  	Here are two fixes for the ia32-compatibility mode handling  	for the new semtimedop() system call for the ia64 architecture.  	  	The first problem was that treatment of user-mode calls to semtimedop()  	with a NULL 4th (struct timespec *) parameter was inconsistent with the  	behavior of the same executable on i386 and also with a natively compiled  	ia64 binary.  A NULL 4th arg to semtimedop() should result in no timeout  	being used (like a straight semop() call) rather than in an EFAULT error.  	  	The second problem was that a legitimate semtimedop() with a timeout was  	also resulting in an EFAULT because the fetch of the internal timespec  	strucure by sys_semtimedop() from semtimedop32()'s kernel stack was  	treated as an invalid user-data reference.  This requires temporarily  	switching the addressing limit with set_fs(), further requiring that  	appropriate parameter checking by performed prior to the switch.  	  	The const qualifier was removed from the (struct compat_timespec *) arg  	to semtimedop32() so that the call to get_compat_timespec() wouldn't  	generate a compilation warning.      	ia64: Manual merge of Bjorn Helgaas' sba_iommu patch to make it use seq_file.      	fix syntax error in ncr53c8xx from hch conversion      	fix missed conversion of to_scsi_host -> dev_to_shost in sim710      	add missing asm/io.h to scsi/dc395x.c      	[PATCH] core dump psinfo.pr_sname letter fix  	  	This patch makes the state letter in the pr_sname field in core dumps  	correct for stopped and zombie threads.  The order needed to be changed when  	the TASK_* values changed.  This matches the letters used in sched.c:show_task.      	[PATCH] PCI Hotplug: fix up the compaq driver to work properly again.

[PATCH] i2c #1/3: listify i2c core  	  	This is the first of tree patches for i2c.  Trying to get the i2c  	cleanups finshed before 2.6.x, so we (hopefully) don't have a  	ever-changing i2c subsystem in 2.7.x again (which is very annonying for  	driver maintainance).  	  	Changes:  	  	 * listify i2c-core, i.e. make it use  instead of  	   statically-sized arrays, removed lots of ugly code :)  	 * added i2c_(get|put)_adapter, changed i2c-dev.c to use these  	   functions instead maintaining is own adapter list.  	 * killed the I2C_DF_DUMMY flag which had the strange semantics to  	   make the i2c subsystem call driver->attach_adapter on detaches.  	   Added a detach_adapter() callback instead.  	 * some other minor cleanups along the way ...      	[PATCH] i2c #2/3: add i2c_clients_command  	  	Changes:  	  	  * adds a i2c_clients_command() function to i2c-core which calls  	    the ->command() callback of all clients attached to a adapter.  	  * make bttv + saa7134 drivers use that function instead of mucking  	    with the i2c_adapter struct themself.      	[PATCH] i2c #3/3: add class field to i2c_adapter  	  	This is the last of three patches for i2c.  It introduces a new field  	to i2c_adapter which classifies the kind of hardware a i2c adapter  	belongs to (analog tv card / dvb card / smbus / gfx card ...).  i2c chip  	drivers can use th
is infomation to decide whenever they want to look for  	hardware on that adapter or not.  It doesn't make sense to probe for a  	tv tuner on a smbus for example ...      	[PATCH] i2c: fix compile error due to previous patches.      	[PATCH] i2c: it87 patch.  	  	More or less straight forward patch.  	  	Fix a typo in the comments at the top.  	Show all 9 voltage inputs.  	Show all 3 fan inputs.  	Allow you to select the temp sensor type from the sysfs interface,  	instead of just with the temp_type module option.  	(1 = diode, 2 = thermistor, 0 = disabled).  	  	I'm still trying to figure out the registers for PWM fan controller  	support.      	o net/socket: fix bug in sys_accept  	  	module_put() gets called twice on error. Once via the explicit module_put and  	the second via sock_release(). Also i think we should do a __module_get() with  	newsock's owner(although same as the original listening sock).

Fix missing NFSv3 unstable write accounting in fs/fs-writeback.c  	and mm/page-writeback.c      	Fix typos in close-to-open cache consistency checking.      	Fix a TCP race: check whether or not the socket has been disconnected  	before we allow an RPC request to wait on a reply.      	Don't use an RPC child process when reconnecting to a TCP server.  	This is more efficient, and also fixes an existing deadlock  	situation in which the child could be waiting for an xprt_write_lock  	that was being held by the parent.      	Ensure that if we need to reconnect the socket, we also resend  	the entire RPC message  	  	Assorted TCP reconnection fixes.  	  	Temporarily raise the necessary CAP_NET_BIND_SERVICE capability  	if we need to bind the socket to a reserved port during a TCP  	reconnection. Check for CAP_NET_BIND_SERVICE at mount time.      	Add the sk->callback_lock spinlocks to the RPC socket callbacks  	in order to protect the socket from being released by one  	CPU while the other is in a soft interrupt.      	the recently-applied patch to fix the rpc_show_tasks() Oops is incomplete.  	this applies over 2.5.68 and should address all of the issues in  	rpc_show_tasks().      	Ensure that Lockd and the NSM (statd) clients always use privileged  	ports. Remove the existing code to temporarily raise privileges in  	fs/lockd/host.c, and use the new code in net/sunrpc/xprt.c  	  	There should no longer be a need to temporarily change the fsuid.  	Remove this feature.      	UDP and TCP zero copy code for the NFS client. The main interest  	of this patch is to eliminate the use of xdr_kmap() and xdr_unmap()  	by replacing them with MSG_MORE. xdr_kmap() is deadlock-prone  	due to the fact that it has to kmap() several pages at the same time.      	o ipx: ipx_interfaces outlives struct sock/socket  	  	And thus have to do module refcounting...

I have the new aacraid driver working on my system now.  The patch is  	against the 2.5.66 updates that you gave me.  I made the following  	changes:  	  	aachba.c aac_scsi_cmd()  	There was a race accessing the scsicmd pointer accessing the host_lock.  	I made a local pointer to the Scsi_Host so the spin_lock_irq after  	aac_read wouldn't panic.  I think that sometimes the I/O would be done  	and the memory freed before returning invalidating the scsicmd pointer.  	I made the same change in aac_io_done in case scsi_done had freed the  	scsicmd memory before returning.  	  	comminit.c aac_alloc_comm()  	AdapterFibsVirtualAddress was set to the virtual address of base.  I  	changed it to set it to the phys address.  I compared this to code  	pointed to by matt domsch on the aacraid devel list on the 5th.  Its  	aac_alloc_comm sets this variable to the phys address.  This fixed the  	probelem where the entry->addr was bad.  Another was to fix it I guess  	would be to leave this change alone and not try to convert the address  	in aac_command_normal.  	  	dpcsup.c aac_response_normal()  	Changed the bus_to_virt to the calculation we talked about last month.  	dpcsup.c aac_command_normal()  	Changed the bus_to_virt to the calculation.      	Use "__attribute__" consistently.      	Allow external checkers to overrid the "cond_syscall()" macro.      	Support a "checking" mode for kernel builds, that runs a  	user-supplied source checker on all C files before compiling  	them.  	  	I'll release the actual checker once I've cleaned it up a  	bit more (yay, all the copyright paperwork completed!)      	[PATCH] generic subarchitecture for ia32  	  	From: Andi Kleen   	  	This patch adds an generic x86 subarchitecture. It is intended to provide  	an dynamic interface for APIC drivers. There are already three subarchitectures  	(bigsmp, summit, default) that only differ in how they drive the local APIC.  	A fourth - Unisys ES7000 - is scheduled to be merged soon.  	  	The subarchitecture concept separated this nicely, but it has the big  	drawback that they are compile time options. A Linux vendor cannot  	ship own binary kernel rpms for all of these machines. Runtime probing  	is needed instead.  	  	This patch adds a new "generic" subarchitecture that just acts as a  	dynamic switching layer for APIC drivers. It only tries to virtualize  	the APICs, no attempt is made to cover further incompatiblities.  	This means machines like the Visual Workstation, pc9800 or  	Voyager are not covered; but these are unlikely to be supported by  	binary distributions anyways.  	  	The generic arch reuses the existing interface in mach_ipi / mach_mpparse.h /  	mach_apic.h and just pulls it using some macros into an "struct genapic"  	object. The main APIC code does not recognize it, it is all hidden  	in the mach-generic include files.  	  	Auto detection of APIC types is supported in the usual way used by  	existing ports like Summit - checking ACPI or mptables for specific  	signatures - or it can be specified by the user using a new "apic="  	boot option. I also moved the DMI scan to before the generic  	subarchitecture probe, so DMI could be used in future too to probe  	specific machines.  	  	Some minor hacks were needed to avoid circular declaration of a few  	symbols, but overall it's fairly clean.  	  	The patch has been tested on a Summit machine, an generic 4 virtual CPUs  	Xeon and on an ES7000.      	[PATCH] Fix
 .altinstructions linking failures  	  	From: Andi Kleen   	  	Some configs didn't link anymore because they got references from  	.altinstructions to __exit functions.  Fixing it at the linker level is not  	easily possible.  This patch just discards .text.exit at runtime instead of  	link time to avoid this.  	  	It will also fix a related problem with .eh_frame in modern gcc (so far only  	observed on x86-64, but could happen on i386 too)      	[PATCH] cpia driver __exit fix  	  	From: Andi Kleen   	  	This driver was bogusly relying on the dropping of the __exit section at link  	time.  cpia_exit() is calling proc_cpia_destroy(), which doesn't even exist  	if !CONFIG_MODULE.

If modprobe fails we  	get an uninitialised timer warning.      	[PATCH] slab: initialisation cleanup and oops fix  	  	From: Manfred Spraul   	  	attached is the promised cleanup/bugfix patch for the slab bootstrap:  	  	- kmem_cache_init & kmem_cache_sizes_init merged into one function,  	  called after mem_init().  It's impossible to bring slab to an operational  	  state without working gfp, thus the early partial initialization is not  	  necessary.  	  	- g_cpucache_up set to FULL at the end of kmem_cache_init instead of the  	  module init call.  This is a bugfix: slab was completely initialized,  	  just the update of the state was missing.  	  	- some documentation for the bootstrap added.  	  	The minimal fix for the bug is a two-liner: move g_cpucache_up=FULL from  	cpucache_init to kmem_cache_sizes_init, but I want to get rid of  	kmem_cache_sizes_init, too.      	[PATCH] sysrq-S, sysrq-U cleanups  	  	From: Christoph Hellwig   	  	Change sysrq sync/remount from a magic bdflush hook to proper pdflush  	operations.  The sync operation reuses most of the regular sys_sync path now  	instead of implementing it's own superblock walking and (broken) local disk  	detection, the remount implementation has been moved to super.c, cleaned up  	and updated for the last two years locking changes.  It also shares some code  	with the regular remount path now.

It  	allows you to use that key normally when Alt is not being pressed.  Patch is  	against kernel 2.5.68.      	[PATCH] Don't use devfs names in disk_name()  	  	From: Christoph Hellwig   	  	disk_name() (and hence bdevname()) are now returning devfs-style device names  	when devfs is enabled.  	  	This is nice, but these names are very long, and they overflow the 32-char  	buffers which these functions use.  	  	The choices are:  	    	a) Use a bigger buffer (increase BDEVNAME_SIZE).  	  	   This might be practical.  But how big?  	  	b) return the name in kmalloced memory, make caller free it up.   Yuk.  	  	c) Add a print_bdevname() thing and intersperse that amongst the printk's.  	   This would work.  	  	d) Just print the non-devfs device name.   That's what this patch does.      	[PATCH] devfs: API changes  	  	From: Christoph Hellwig   	  	Some people may already have noticed that I've been revamping the devfs API  	recently.  The worst offender still left is devfs_register, it's prototype  	is:  	  		 devfs_handle_t devfs_register(devfs_handle_t dir,  			const char *name, unsigned int flags,  			unsigned int major, unsigned int minor,  			umode_t mode, void *ops, void *info)  	  	Of these:  	  	 - dir and flags are always zero  	 - the return value is never used  	 - info is only used in one driver which doesn't even need it for  	   operation  	 - umode_t always describes a character device  	 - name very often comes from a stack buffer we sprintf'ed into  	  	so obviously we really want a much simpler API instead.  My first draft for  	this was:  	  		int devfs_mk_cdev(dev_t dev, umode_t mode,  			struct file_operations *fops, void *info,  			const char *fmt, ...)  	  	this removes the unused argumens, switches to a proper dev_t for the device  	number and allows to directly use a printf-like expression as name, getting  	rid of the temporary buffers.  	  	Now Al has reappeared and put the first steps of his CIDR for charater device  	on public ftp and we'll soon have a similar lookup object + fops mechanism in  	generic code as we already habe for blockdevices, i.e.  the devfs code to  	assign fops from an entry will become superflous as generic code already does  	it.  That means the fops and info arguments are obsolete before they were  	introduced, so I'd like to propose the following API instead:  	  		int devfs_mk_cdev(dev_t dev, umode_t mode, const char *fmt, ...)  	  	which is much nicer anyway.  The educated reader will notice that this is  	exactly the same prototype devfs_mk_bdev has so I'll probably get suggestions  	to merge those two into some kind of devfs_mk_node soon.  Personally I don't  	like that as character and blockdevices are two really separate entinities  	and I'll like to keep them as separate as possible.  	  	Example patch that introduces the API and converts drivers/input attached.  	  	Every driver which calls devfs_mk_cdev (about 50) needs conversion.  Note  	that the transition can happen in pieces - devfs_register continues to work    	after this patch, it's just the plan to get rid of it in the end.      	[PATCH] remove partition_name()  	  	From: Christoph Hellwig   	  	partition_name() is a variant of __bdevname() that caches results and  	returns a pointrer to kmalloc()ed data instead of printing into a buffer.  	Due to it's caching it gets utterly confused when the name for a dev_t  	changes (can happen easily now with device mapper and probably in the  	future with dynamic dev_t users).  	  	It's only used by the raid code and most calls are through a wrapper,  	bdev_partition_name() which takes a struct block_device * that maybe be  	NULL.  	  	The patch below changes the bdev_partition_name() to call bdevname() if  	possible and the other calls where we really have nothing more than a dev_t  	to __bdevname.  	  	Btw, it would be nice if someone who knows the md code a bit better than me  	could remove bdev_partition_name() in favour of direct calls to bdevname()  	where possible - that would also get rid of the returns pointer to string  	on stack issue that this patch can't fix yet.      	[PATCH] switch most remaining drivers over to devfs_mk_bdev  	  	From: Christoph Hellwig   	  	This is a pretty huge patch, but splitting it doesn't make a lot  	of sense..  	  	(USB may still need work)      	[PATCH] dvbdev fixes  	  	From: Monchi Abbad   	  	I found
a mistake in the dvbdev.c file when creating the dvb /devfs files,  	it created /dev/dvb/adapter0device0 instead of /dev/dvb/adapter0/device0.  	But here is a simple fix.      	[PATCH] access_ok() race fix for 80386.  	  	From: Manfred Spraul   	  	Real 80386 cpus ignore the write protected bit in the page tables when  	running in supervisory mode.  Thus the write protected bit must be checked by  	software.  The current implementation does that check during access_ok().  	This can result in data corruptions, if kswapd starts a swap-out between the  	access_ok and the actual write operation.  	  	To fix this, the patch moves the check from access_ok() into  	__copy_to_user_ll(), and redirects all user space writes into  	__copy_to_user_ll().  The patch only affects kernels build for 80386 cpus.  	Additionally, the patch removes the dead prototypes for __put_user_{1,2,4,8}.  	  	Due to the uninlining of access_ok, the .text segment is now ~ 8 kB shorter.      	[PATCH] hold i_sem on swapfiles  	  	If a swapfile is ftruncated while in use, subsequent swapout will scribble on  	the filesystem.  	  	This is a case of root-shoot-foot, but wrecking the fs is a fairly rude  	response.  And it's easy to fix: hold i_sem across the life of the swapon.      	[PATCH] remove unnecessary PAE pgd set  	  	From: Dave Hansen , Bill Irwin  	  	With PAE on, there are only 4 PGD entries.  The kernel ones never change,  	so there is no need to copy them when a vmalloc fault occurs.  This was  	this was causing problems with the split pmd patches, but it is still  	correct for mainline.  	  	Tested with and without PAE.  I ran it in a loop turning on and off 10 swap  	partitions, which is what excited the original bug.  	http://bugme.osdl.org/show_bug.cgi?id=640      	[PATCH] account for slab reclaim in try_to_free_pages()  	  	try_to_free_pages() currently fails to notice that it successfully freed slab  	pages via shrink_slab().  So it can keep looping and eventually call  	out_of_memory(), even though there's a lot of memory now free.  	  	And even if it doesn't do that, it can free too much memory.  	  	The patch changes try_to_free_pages() so that it will notice freed slab pages  	and will return when enough memory has been freed via shrink_slab().  	  	Many options were considered, but must of them were unacceptably inaccurate,  	intrusive or sleazy.  I ended up putting the accounting into a stack-local  	structure which is pointed to by current->reclaim_state.  	  	One reason for this is that we can cleanly resurrect the current->local_pages  	pool by putting it into struct reclaim_state.  	  	(current->local_pages was removed because the per-cpu page pools in the page  	allocator largely duplicate its function.  But it is still possible for  	interrupt-time allocations to steal just-freed pages, so we might want to put  	it back some time.)      	[PATCH] slab: additional debug checks  	  	From: Manfred Spraul   	  	below is the promised patch for better slab debugging, against 2.5.68-mm4:  	  	Changes:  	  	- enable redzoning and last user accounting even for large objects, if  	  that doesn't waste too much memory  	  	- document why FORCED_DEBUG doesn't enable redzoning&last user accounting  	  for some caches.  	  	- check the validity of the bufctl chains in a slab in __free_blocks.  	  This detects double-free error for the caches without redzoning.      	[PATCH] reduced overheads in fget/fput  	  	From: Dipankar Sarma   	  	  	fget() shows up on profiles, especially on SMP.  Dipankar's patch  	special-cases the situation wherein there are no sharers of current->files.  	  	In this situation we know that no other process can close this file, so it  	is not necessary to increment the file's refcount.  	  	It's ugly as sin, but makes a substantial difference.  	  	The test is  	  		dd if=/dev/zero of=foo bs=1 count=1M  	  	On 4CPU P3 xeon with 1MB L2 cache and 512MB ram:  	  		kernel           sys time     std-dev  		------------     --------     -------  	  		UP - vanilla     2.104        0.028  		UP - file        1.867        0.019  	  		SMP - vanilla    2.976        0.023  		SMP - file       2.719        0.026      	[PATCH] allow i8042 interrupt sharing  	  	Ed Tomlinson has a machine on which some other device grabs IRQ12 first, and  	the 8042 doesn't work.  Enabling shared iRQs in the 8042 driver fixes it up.  	Alan has confirmed that this is OK.      	[PATCH] select() speedup  	  	From: Christoph Hellwig   	  	Originally by David Mosberger, testing by Roger Luethi.  From the ia64 tree.  	  	Basically, it avoids going to memory all the time.  What this does is make  	life a lot easier for gcc, so it can actually do a decent amount of  	optimization.  The restructuring clearly is less important for out-of-order  	CPUs, but even there it gives some benefits.  	  	More specifically, the loop is now structured to operate one "unsigned long"  	at a time, rather than one bit at a time.  Of course, you still need to  	process all the bits, but most of the relevant state in the inner loop can be  	kept in registers.  	  	Roger Luethi measured the routine on a bunch of different machines (mostly  	x86, IIRC: P5, P6, Crusoe, Athlons) and performance improved there, too (and  	it should definitely improve performance on any RISC-like architecture).

This  	change is necessary so that security modules can internally call the  	getxattr inode operation (which takes a dentry parameter) from this hook to  	obtain the inode security label.      	[PATCH] ext3 xattr handler for security modules  	  	From: Stephen Smalley   	  	This patch against 2.5.68 implements an xattr handler for ext3 to support the  	use of extended attributes by security modules for storing file security  	labels.  As per the earlier discussion of extended attributes for security  	modules, this handler uses a "security." prefix and allows for per-module  	attribute names.  Security checking for userspace access to these attributes  	can be performed by the security module using the LSM hooks in fs/xattr.c,  	and the security module is free to internally use the inode operations  	without restriction for managing its security labels.  Unlike the trusted  	namespace, these labels are used internally for access control purposes by  	the security modules, and controls over userspace access to them require  	finer granularity than capable() supports.      	[PATCH] ext2 xattr handler for security modules  	  	From: Stephen Smalley   	  	This patch against 2.5.68 implements an xattr handler for ext2 to support the  	use of extended attributes by security modules for storing file security  	labels.

[PATCH] Change LSM hooks in setxattr  	  	From: Stephen Smalley   	  	This patch against 2.5.69 adds a security_inode_post_setxattr hook so that  	security modules can update the inode security structure after a successful  	setxattr, and it moves the existing security_inode_setxattr hook call after  	the taking the inode semaphore so that atomicity is provided for the  	security check and the update to the inode security structure.      	[PATCH] Work around include/linux/sunrpc/svc.h compilation  	  	From: Grzegorz Jaskiewicz   	  	gcc-2.94 fails to compile this code, alleging an invalid lvalue.

(2)  Most remaining callers of are in the form  		scsi_put_command(cmd);  		scsi_queue_next_request(q, NULL);  	     add a new helper, scsi_next_command() for them.

There's additional kerneldoc, which I won't submit at  	this time, available.      	[PATCH] Net2280 driver (2/6)  	  	This patch creates drivers/usb/gadget/net2280.[hc],  	providing a driver for NetChip's "Net2280 PCI USB 2.0  	High Speed Peripheral Controller".  	  	It implements the API included in the first patch.  	  	The driver has behaved well with chiprev 0100 under  	stress tests with Gadget Zero and the ethernet model  	driver, and has passed sanity tests for chiprev 0110.      	[PATCH] USB "Gadget Zero" driver (3/6)  	  	This patch adds "Gadget Zero" (drivers/usb/gadget/zero.c).  	  	Gadget Zero is a simple gadget driver that's useful for  	testing controller drivers, and as an example to be used  	for clone/modify style development.  	  	This driver implements two configurations, and needs only  	two bulk endpoints (in addition to ep0) ... so pretty much  	any USB device controller should be usable with it in  	one configuration or another.  It (optionally) supports  	high speed devices, and has passed the USB-IF "chapter 9"  	device model conformance tests.  	  	It's worth noticing the kinds of hardware differences that  	gadget drivers need to cope with.  Endpoints differ, in  	ways that must be reflected various ways in descriptors.  	And sometimes chip errata cause interoperability problems;  	for example, an sa1100 can't change configurations after  	enumerating.      	[PATCH] USB Ethernet Gadget (4/6)  	  	This patch adds an "Ethernet Gadget" driver, implementing  	the CDC Ethernet model (drivers/usb/gadget/ether.c).  	  	It interops with the current CDC Ether drivers on Linux,  	both 2.4 (CDCEther, using Marcelo's latest) and 2.5  	(cdc-ether with recent patches, or on 2.5.68 "usbnet")  	  	On a net2280, this has successfully streamed dozens of  	megabytes per second using "ttcp" (high speed, and using  	"usbnet" on the host side), for days at a time.  And no  	problems using SSH/NFS/etc in lighter duty testing.  	  	It's possible this will need tweaking to cope with UDC  	bugs on Intel's pxa25x controllers, presenting itself  	as a non-CDC device. (I'm told altsettings are even  	more broken than originally specified to be.)      	[PATCH] USB Gadget string utility (5/6)  	  	This adds utility code that gadget drivers can use to manage  	string descriptors (drivers/usb/gadget/usbstring.c) in the  	common case that the ISO-8859/1 character set is in use.  	  	Both "Gadget Zero" and the Ethernet gadget code use this.      	[PATCH] kbuild/kbuild for USB Gadgets (6/6)  	  	This patch adds kconfig/kbuild support for the preceding  	code, so that an EXPERIMENTAL option appears in the  	USB part of the config menus.  	  	Once a USB device controller driver is configured (which  	just now means net2280, but sa11x0 and pxa25x options  	are just waiting for updates!), gadget driver options  	are also available.      	[PATCH] USB: gadget cleanup of #ifdefs  	  	> can you get rid of all of the #ifdef HAVE_DRIVER_MODEL stuff?  	  	Done.  Now this code "knows" it's running in a 2.5  	environment, and needs modifications to run on 2.4.  	  	I also changed the file modes in the module_parm()  	calls so the parameters will be writable when they  	eventually show up in sysfs; and fixed a typo.  	  	Compile-tested with and without DEBUG enabled.      	[PATCH] USB: gadget zero, loopback config fix  	  	If the host writes OUT packets using URB_ZERO_PACKET  	(or its analogue on other USB host systems), then the  	loopback configuration should set req->zero, to use that  	same transfer termination policy when it writes the  	response back IN to the host.      	[PATCH] USB gadget: net2280: dmachain off, zlp pio ok  	  	This patch has two small fixes for issues that people  	reported to me yesterday:  	  	  - One of the out-of-tree drivers sees odd things  	    happening when dma chaining is enabled.  (The  	    in-tree drivers seem fine with it.)  So disable  	    for now; it's easily enabled if needed.  	  	  - Zero Length Packets (ZLPs):  	  	     * Should now read/write ok with PIO.  	  	     * On DMA endpoints, explicit ZLPs need PIO.

[PATCH] I2C: Another it87 patch.  	  	This is against my last.  	  	While the old code most definitely did /something/ to the register for  	setting the fan div, the 'what' is a more interesting question.  	  	To be honest I could not figure out what it was trying to do, because  	the way it was inserting values disagreed with not only the data sheet,  	but how it parsed the very same register.  	  	This corrects the issue, and allows one to properly control the divisor  	on all 3 fans, including the (much more limited) 3rd fan.      	[PATCH] I2C: Yet another it87 patch.  	  	Ok, after writing up something in the way of a perl script to make some  	sense of the data for voltages, and finding that there is no sense to  	make, I took a longer look at things.  	  	The it87 driver in 2.5.x is doing some, down right /odd/ math on the  	numbers for the in_input* readings, and the 2.4.x driver is doing  	something quite different.  	  	And while it might be possible to get sane numbers out of the 2.5.x  	driver, people /expect/ to get the numbers that they were getting from  	2.4.x.  	  	So this patch puts things back to the simpler calculations done by the  	2.4.x lm-sensors drivers, and my script confirms that the numbers come  	out right.      	[PATCH] I2C: And another it87 patch.  	  	Don't provide min/max for in8, which allowed one to scribble on  	registers one should not be messing with. (My fault, oops.)  	  	The setting of the temp high/low registers was off by one, not mine this  	time.  While I was at it, I reordered a few other register accesses to  	be base 0 instead of base 1.  	  	The temp interface was slightly incorrect, degrees * 100 instead of  	degrees * 1000, also fixed.  	  	And lastly, when changing the fan count divisor, fix up the min setting  	to still be roughly the same.

[Bluetooth] Detect and log error condition when first L2CAP fragment is too long.      	[PATCH] Fix potential runqueue deadlock  	  	send_sig_info() has been broken since 2.5.60.  	  	The function can be invoked from a the time interrupt (timer_interrpt ->  	do_timer -> update_process_times -> -> update_one_process -> (  	do_process_times, do_it_prof, do_it_virt ) -> -> send_sig ->  	send_sig_info) but it uses spin_unlock_irq instead of the correct  	spin_unlock_irqrestore.   	  	This enables interrupts, and later scheduler_tick() locks runqueue  	(without disabling interrupts).  And if we are unlucky, a new interrupt  	comes at this point.  And if this interrupt tries to do wake_up() (like  	RTC interrupt does), we will deadlock on runqueue lock :-(  	  	The bug was introduced by signal-fixes-2.5.59-A4, which split the  	original send_sig_info into two functions, and in one branch it started  	using these unsafe spinlock variants (while the "group" variant uses  	irqsave/restore correctly).

The problem was seen with a real device: Compaq multi-path storage  	arrays return NOT READY to probes down inactive paths, but when the  	start unit is sent to activate the path, they can then respond back with  	error conditions.

Right now we  	are reserving 256 requests per initialized queue, which adds up to quite  	a lot of memory for even a modest number of queues. For the quoted 4000  	disk systems, it's a disaster.  	  	Instead, we mempool 4 requests per queue and put an upper limit on the  	number of requests that we will put in-flight as well. I've kept the 128  	read/write max in-flight limit for now. It is trivial to experiement  	with larger queue sizes now, but I want to change one thing at the time  	(the truncate scenario doesn't look all that good with a huge number of  	requests, for instance).

Without this the TSS bitmap contains  	random garbage until the next context switch.      	ACPI: kobject fix (Greg KH)  	Here's a small patch that fixes the logic of the kobject creation and  	registration in the acpi code (since we use kobject_init(), we need to  	use kobject_add(), not kobject_register() to add the kobject to the  	kernel systems).      	ACPI: Allow ":" in OS override string (Ducrot Bruno)      	ACPI: Interpreter update to 20030509  	Changed the subsystem initialization sequence to hold off installation of  	address space handlers until the hardware has been initialized and the  	system has entered ACPI mode.  This is because the installation of space  	handlers can cause _REG methods to be run.  Previously, the _REG methods  	could potentially be run before ACPI mode was enabled.  	  	Fixed some memory leak issues related to address space handler and notify  	handler installation.  There were some problems with the reference count  	mechanism caused by the fact that the handler objects are shared across  	several namespace objects.  	  	Fixed a reported problem where reference counts within the namespace were  	not properly updated when named objects created by method execution were  	deleted.  	  	Fixed a reported problem where multiple SSDTs caused a deletion issue  	during subsystem termination.  Restructured the table data structures  	to simplify the linked lists and the related code.  	  	Fixed a problem where the table ID associated with secondary tables (SSDTs)  	was not being propagated into the namespace objects created by those  	tables.  This would only present a problem for tables that are unloaded  	at run-time, however.  	  	Updated AcpiOsReadable and AcpiOsWritable to use the ACPI_SIZE type as  	the length parameter (instead of UINT32).  	  	Solved a long-standing problem where an ALREADY_EXISTS error appears on  	various systems.  This problem could happen when there are multiple  	PCI_Config operation regions under a single PCI root bus.  This doesnt  	happen very frequently, but there are some systems that do this in the  	ASL.  	  	Fixed a reported problem where the internal DeleteNode function was  	incorrectly handling the case where a namespace node was the first in  	the parents child list, and had additional peers (not the only child,  	but first in the list of children.)

This field is a hint  	where to start looking for free clusters.  	  	Using this field makes a big difference for disks connected over slow links  	such as USB 1.1.  Finding the first free cluster on a 40gig fat-formatted  	usb disk can today take several minutes.  This patch cuts it down to a  	fraction of a second.

[PATCH] Quota write transaction size fix  	  	From: Jan Kara   	  	I'm sending a patch which changes numbers of blocks reserved for quota writes  	to more appropriate values (with current values ext3 asserts can be  	triggered).      	[PATCH] dquot_transfer() fix  	  	From: Jan Kara   	  	I'm sending a fix which fixes potential problems (dropping references which  	were not acquired) when dquot_transfer() fails.      	[PATCH] Bump module ref during init.  	  	From: Rusty Russell   	  	__module_get is theoretically allowed on module inside init, since we  	already hold an implicit reference.  Currently this BUG()s: make the  	reference count explicit, which also simplifies delete path.  Also cleans  	up unload path, such that it only drops semaphore when it's actually  	sleeping for rmmod --wait.      	[PATCH] exit_mmap() TASK_SIZE fix  	  	exit_mmap() currently assumes that the exitting task used virtual address  	span TASK_SIZE.  	  	But on some platforms, TASK_SIZE is variable, based on current->mm.  	  	But exit_mmap() can be called from (say) procfs's call to mmput.  In which  	case current->mm has nothing to do with the mm which is being put in  	mmput().  	  	So rather than assuming that the mm which is being put is current->mm, we  	need to calculate the virtual span of the mm.  Add a new per-arch macro  	MM_VM_SIZE() for that.  	  	Some platforms can currently go BUG over this (where?).  sparc64 is safe  	because our TASK_SIZE is constant.  	  	Platforms such as ia64 should stick the VM extent inside of mm_struct, I'd  	suggest adding it to mm_context_t.  	  	1) TASK_SIZE means what is valid for mmap()'s in the processes  	   address space  	  	2) MM_VM_SIZE means where things might be mapped for a MM, including  	   private implementation-specific areas created by the kernel  	   which the user cannot access      	[PATCH] semop race fix  	  	From: Mingming Cao   	  	Basically, freeary() is called with the spinlock for that semaphore set  	hold.  But after the semaphore set is removed from the ID array by  	calling sem_rmid(), there is no lock to protect the waiting queue for  	that semaphore set.  So, if a waiter is woken up by a signal (not by the  	wakeup from freeary()), it will check the q->status and q->prev fields.  	At that moment, freeary() may not have a chance to update those fields  	yet.  	  	static void freeary (int id)  	{  		.......  	        sma = sem_rmid(id);  	  		......  	        /* Wake up all pending processes and let them fail with EIDRM.*/  	        for (q = sma->sem_pending; q; q = q->next) {  	                q->status = -EIDRM;  	                q->prev = NULL;  	                wake_up_process(q->sleeper); /* doesn't sleep */  	        }  	        sem_unlock(sma);  		......  	}  	  	So I propose move sem_rmid() after the loop of waking up every waiters.  	That could gurantee that when the waiters are woke up, the updates for  	q->status and q->prev have already done.  Similar thing in message queue  	case.  The patch is attached below. Comments are very welcomed.  	  	I have tested this patch on 2.5.68 kernel with LTP tests, seems fine to  	me. Paul, could you test this on DOTS test again? Thanks!      	[PATCH] visws: fix penguin with sgi logo  	  	From: Andrey Panin   	  	attached patch fixes penguin with sgi framebuffer logo for  	visws subarch. It was broken in 2.5.68 IIRC.      	[PATCH] fix for clusterd io_apics  	  	From: Keith Mannthey   	  	The following is a patch to fix inconsistent use of the function  	set_ioapic_affinity.  In the current kernel it is unclear as to weather the  	value being passed to the function is a cpu mask or valid apic id.  In  	irq_affinity_write_proc the kernel passes on a cpu mask but the kirqd thread  	passes on logical apic ids.  In flat apic mode this is not an issue because a  	cpu mask represents the apic value.  However in clustered apic mode the cpu  	mask is very different from the logical apic id.  	  	This is an attempt to do the right thing for clustered apics.  I clarify that  	the value being passed to set_ioapic_affinity is a cpu mask not a apicid.  	Set_ioapic_affinity will do the conversion to logical apic ids.  Since many  	cpu masks don't map to valid apicids in clustered apic mode TARGET_CPUS is  	used as a default value when such a situation occurs.  I think this is a good  	step in making irq_affinity clustered apic safe.      	[PATCH] provide user feedback for emergency sync and remount  	  	People like to see when the emergency sync and emergency remount operations  	have completed.      	[PATCH] copy_process return value fix  	  	Rather than assuming that all the things which copy_process() calls want to    	return -ENOMEM, correctly propagate the return values.  	  	This turns out to be a no-op at present.      	[PATCH] de_thread memory corruption fix  	  	From: Manfred Spraul   	  	de_thread calls list_del(¤t->tasks), but current->tasks was never  	added to the task list. The structure contains stale values from the parent.  	  	switch_exec_pid() transforms a normal thread to a thread group leader.  	Thread group leaders are included in the init_task.tasks linked list,  	non-leaders are not in that list.  The patch adds the new thread group  	leader to the linked list, otherwise de_thread corrupts the task list.      	[PATCH] vmalloc race fix  	  	From: William Lee Irwin III   	  	The new vmalloc() semantics from 2.5.32 had a race window.  As things stand,  	the presence of a vm_area in the vmlist protects from allocators other than  	the owner examining the ptes in that area.  This puts an ordering constraint  	on unmapping, so that allocators are required to unmap areas before removing  	them from the list or otherwise dropping the lock.  	  	Currently, unmap_vm_area() is done outside the lock and after the area is  	removed, which as we've seen from Felix von Leitner's test is oopsable.  	  	The following patch folds calls to unmap_vm_area() into remove_vm_area() to  	reinstate what are essentially the 2.4.x semantics of vfree().  This renders  	a number of unmap_vm_area() calls unnecessary (and in fact oopsable since  	they wipe ptes from later allocations).  It's an open question as to whether  	this is sufficiently performant, but it is the minimally invasive approach.  	The more performant alternative is to provide the right API hooks to wipe the  	vmalloc() area clean before removing them from the list, using the ownership  	of the area to eliminate holding the vmlist_lock for the duration of the  	unmapping.  If it proves to be necessary wli is on standby to implement it.      	[PATCH] Reserve the ext2/ext3 EAs for the Lustre filesystem  	  	From: Andreas Dilger   	  	Below are the patches which reserve the Lustre EA index.

[PATCH] Fix arch/i386/oprofile/init.c build error  	  	From: John M Flinchbaugh   	  	this patch makes arch/i386/oprofile/init.c build.      	[PATCH] Fix ext3 htree / NFS compatibility problems  	  	Patch from "Theodore Ts'o"   	  	The following patch should (in theory) fix the htree/NFS readdir problems  	that people have reported.  Specifically, it should fix the NFS looping on  	EOF problem with readdir, as well as the problems caused by coverting a  	directory to HTREE while an NFS readdir is in progress problem.  	  	I'd appreciate it if people who can easily replicate these NFS/htree problems  	could give this patch (against BK-recent / 2.5.63) a whirl.  Thanks!!      	[PATCH] htree nfs fix  	  	Patch from "Theodore Ts'o"   	  	We now use 0x7ffffff as the EOF cookie, because Linux NFS stupidly interprets  	the cookie (which is supposed to be a bag of bits without necessarily any  	semantic value) as a signed 64 bit integer, and then converts it to a  	unsigned integer, and then blows up if it cannot be expressed be expressed as  	a 32-bit value!!  	  	In order to do this, we have to fold the hash value 0x7ffffff into the hash  	value 0x7ffffffe.  This is relatively safe; the only time we will lose if the  	directory contains filenames that hash to both 0x7ffffffe and 0x7fffffff  	(under the original hash), and the last directory entry which hashes to  	0x7ffffffe is at the end of a leaf block, and the first directory entry which  	hashes to 0x7fffffff is at the beginning of a leaf block.      	[PATCH] ext3: htree memory leak fix  	  	From Alex Tomas  	  	We started using ext3_dx_readdir() for all dir_index filesystems, because  	we want to return entries in hash order always, so that readdir with a  	partial read + new entry added before next readdir won't be crazy.

Some of our  	more recent hardware requires that SMIs are routed through the IOAPIC, thus  	when we clear_IO_APIC() at boot time, we clear the BIOS initialized SMI  	pin.  This basically clobbers the SMI so we can then never make the  	transition into ACPI mode.  	  	This patch simply reads the apic entry in clear_IO_APIC to make sure the  	delivery_mode isn't dest_SMI.  If it is, we leave the apic entry alone and  	return.  	  	With this patch, the box boots and SMIs function properly.      	[PATCH] Make debugging variant of spinlocks a bit more robust  	  	From: Petr Vandrovec   	  	While I was trying to hunt down problem with spin_lock_irq in  	send_sig_info, I noticed that debugging spinlocks are a bit unusable.

So if the lock is used by printk code (like runqueue  	lock was), we get nothing, just a lockup or a double fault...

[PATCH] 3c59x irqreturn fix  	  	Apparently boomerang_interrupt() is generating lots of "nobody cared"  	warnings - one per packet it seems.  Frankly, I don't have a clue why.

[PATCH] reiserfs: allow multiple block insertion into the tree  	  	I've had these reiserfs patches in -mm for many months.  We've been  	undecided because they trigger bugs in a couple of apps.  But those apps  	are now fixed, so it's best to get these speedups in.  	  	  	From: Oleg Drokin   	  	This patch allows insertion of more than one "indirect" block pointer into  	the tree in reiserfs.  (with all the necessary balancing code changes).  	The first user of that feature is hole-creation code that is now ~1000  	times more cpu-efficient for the case of large holes.      	[PATCH] reiserfs: reiserfs_file_write implementation  	  	From: Oleg Drokin   	  	With the current 'one block at a time' algorithm, writes past the end of a  	file are slow because each new file block is separately added into the tree  	causing shifting of other items which is CPU expensive.  	  	With this new implementation if you write into file with big enough chunks,  	it uses half as much CPU.  Also this version is more SMP friendly than the  	current one.  	  	There are some known-bad applications that break with this patch (ie.  start  	to work very slow or even hang).  	  	This is because the filesystem returns a large value in the stat.st_blocksize  	hint (128k instead of 4k).  This tickles a small number of application bugs.  	One is KDE's kmail 3.04 (fixed by upgrading to 3.1+) and the other is  	sleepycat's database from before 1997.  	  	If you hit a slowdown problem that you believe is related to the increased  	"recommended i/o size" value, try to mount your fs with nolargeio=1 mount  	option (remount should work too).  	  	This patch exports block_commit_write(), generic_osync_inode() and  	remove_suid() to modules.      	[PATCH] fix CONFIG_APM=m  	  	From: mikpe@csd.uu.se  	  	Here is a patch to fix CONFIG_APM=m in 2.5.69-bk11.  My patch to have APM  	restore the systenter MSRs failed to handle the modular case, which fails  	with unresolved symbols.  	  	Since suspend.o is used from both APM (module or built-in) and ACPI sleep  	(built-in), I made suspend.o built-in and dependent on CONFIG_PM.      	[PATCH] Fix for latent bug in vmtruncate()  	  	From: "Paul E. McKenney"   	  	The vmtruncate() function shifts down by PAGE_CACHE_SHIFT, then calls  	vmtruncate_list(), which deals in terms of PAGE_SHIFT instead.  Currently,  	no harm done, since PAGE_CACHE_SHIFT and PAGE_SHIFT are identical.  Some  	day they might not be, hence this patch.  	  	I also took the liberty of modifying a hand-coded "if" that seems to  	optimize for files that are not mapped to instead use unlikely().      	[PATCH] v4l: #1 - video-buf update  	  	From: Gerd Knorr   	  	This minor patch updates the video-buf module.

From: Gerd Knorr   	  	This patch updates a number of video4linux-related i2c modules.  There are a  	number of bugfixes which accumulated over time, also some no-op i2c changes  	due to merging the i2c cleanups back into my tree and tweak them to make the  	modules compile on both 2.5.x and 2.4.x.      	[PATCH] v4l: #6 - tuner module update  	  	From: Gerd Knorr   	  	This patch updates the tv card tuner module.  It adds support for a new tuner  	and has some minor fixes + cleanups.  Also deletes some dead code.      	[PATCH] v4l: #7 - saa7134 driver update  	  	From: Gerd Knorr   	  	Yet another big one (due to not being updated for a long time) -- saa7134  	driver update.  Changes:  	  	 * various bugfixes / cleanups.  	  	 * new cards added to the cardlist.  	  	 * started support for saa7133/35 chips.  	  	 * make the driver check pci quirks.      	[PATCH] fix tuner.c and tda9887.c  	  	From: Shane Shrybman   	  	Attached are two patches that make bttv compile and work in 2.5.69-mm6.  I  	think this broke in -mm4.

[PATCH] BUG() -> BUG_ON() conversions.  	  	From: davej@codemonkey.org.uk  	  	Various performance critical sections.  	  	The increased cache footprint may be a pessimisation, especially on earlier  	CPUs where unlikely() doesn't
do anything useful, and we fall back to  	trusting gcc to DTRT.      	[PATCH] 3c59x: add support for 3c905B-T4, 3C920B-EMB-WNM  	  	A couple of new PCI IDs which were found in 3com's driver by Xose Vazquez  	Perez .  	  	We don't know if these work, but if they are really 905B's and 920's it  	should be OK.      	[PATCH] CONFIG_ACPI_SLEEP compile fix  	  	From: mikpe@csd.uu.se  	  	When I grepped for these variables I failed to notice the references in  	acpi/wakeup.S.  This patch fixes this.      	[PATCH] fix handling of spares physical APIC ids  	  	From: William Lee Irwin III   	  	To handle sparse physical APIC ID's properly the phys_cpu_present_map must  	be scanned beyond bit NR_CPUS while ensuring no more than NR_CPUS are woken  	in order not to attempt to wake non-addressible cpus.  	  	The following patch adds that logic to smp_boot_cpus() and corrects the  	failure to wake secondaries reported by dhowells, with successful wakeup,  	runtime, reboot, and halting reported after it was applied.      	[PATCH] put_page_testzero() fix  	  	From: William Lee Irwin III   	  	put_page_testzero() does BUG_ON(page_count(page)) when its argument is p.      	[PATCH] DAC960 oops fix  	  	ioctl_by_bdev() passes in a NULL file*, so we had better not dereference it.      	[PATCH] I2C: And yet another it87 patch.  	  	Trivial, but important.  	  	Somehow in the patching the bk tree somehow got two memset's to clear  	new_client in it87_detect, normally while this would be bad, it would  	not be critical.  	  	However one of the two happens BEFORE the variable is set, and thus  	things go badly.      	[PATCH] signal latency fixes  	  	This fixes an SMP window where the kernel could miss to handle a signal,  	and increase signal delivery latency up to 200 msecs.  Sun has reported  	to Ulrich that their JVM sees occasional unexpected signal delays under  	Linux.  The more CPUs, the more delays.  	  	The cause of the problem is that the current signal wakeup  	implementation is racy in kernel/signal.c:signal_wake_up():  	  	        if (t->state == TASK_RUNNING)  	                kick_if_running(t);  		...  	        if (t->state & mask) {  	                wake_up_process(t);  	                return;  	        }  	  	If thread (or process) 't' is woken up on another CPU right after the  	TASK_RUNNING check, and thread starts to run, then the wake_up_process()  	here will do nothing, and the signal stays pending up until the thread  	will call into the kernel next time - which can be up to 200 msecs  	later.  	  	The solution is to do the 'kicking' of a running thread on a remote CPU  	atomically with the wakeup.  For this i've added wake_up_process_kick().  	There is no slowdown for the other wakeup codepaths, the new flag to  	try_to_wake_up() is compiled off for them.  Some other subsystems might  	want to use this wakeup facility as well in the future (eg.  AIO).  	  	In fact this race triggers quite often under Volanomark rusg, with this  	change added, Volanomark performance is up from 500-800 to 2000-3000, on  	a 4-way x86 box.      	[PATCH] scheduler cleanup  	  	This removes the unused requeueing code.      	[PATCH] sync wakeup on UP  	  	This fixes the scheduler's sync-wakeup code to be consistent on UP as  	well.  	  	Right now there's a behavioral difference between an UP kernel and an  	SMP kernel running on a UP box: sync wakeups (which are only activated  	on SMP) can cause a wakeup of a higher prio task, without preemption.  	On UP kernels this does not happen.  This difference in wakeup behavior  	is bad.  	  	This patch activates sync wakeups on UP as well - in the cases sync  	wakeups are done the waker knows that it will schedule away soon, so  	this 'delay preemption' decision is correct on UP as well.      	[PATCH] USB: usbtest, talk to user mode "firmware"  	  	Supports some user-mode testing "firmware".      	[PATCH] Fix lost scheduler rebalances  	  	This fixes a race noticed by Mike Galbraith: the scheduler can lose a  	rebalance tick if some task happens to not be rescheduled in time.  This  	is not a fatal condition, but an inconsistency nevertheless.      	[PATCH] USB: usb-skeleton compile fix  	  	usb-skelteon doesn't compile after recent changes.

Careful reading of the bulk-only specification shows that a reset  	must be done after an abort to get the host and target back into phase.      	[PATCH] USB: storage: remove inline function  	  	This patch removes a single-line inline function and replaces it with it's  	expansion everywhere.

We had two major issues when unregistering networking devices.  	1) Even trying to run hotplug asynchronously could deadlock  	   if keventd was currently trying to get the RTNL semaphore  	   in order to process linkwatch events.  	2) Unregister needs to wait for the last reference to go away  	   before the finalization of the unregister can execute.

The solution is to do all of this stuff after dropping the  	RTNL semaphore.  rtnl_lock, if it is about to protect a region  	of code that could unregister network devices, registers a list  	to which unregistered netdevs are attached.

[PATCH] kNFSd: TCP nfsd connection hangs when partial record header is received  	  	Below patch resolves a hang where a TCP nfsd connection will hang even  	though new data is received on the socket. We've seen this a few times in  	our lab, but it usually happened every few weeks.  	  	If a short record header is received, the SK_BUSY flag is never cleared,  	and even though new data arrives, it will not be handled. This in turn  	leads to hangs of particular clients (while others will continue to work  	without problem).

The check for "write was incomplete" is not atomic with the actual write,  	so a second write could slip in after a partial write to a tcp socket  	and this will cause problems.  	  	So we move the locking out a bit, and test if the socket has  	been deleted (SK_DEAD) between getting the lock and trying  	to send.

[PATCH] USB speedtouch: verbose debugging  	  	Add a vdbg macro for verbose debugging, and convert some  	noisy debugging statements to use it.      	[PATCH] USB speedtouch: remove stale code  	  	Should have gone long ago.      	[PATCH] USB speedtouch: use optimally sized reconstruction buffers  	  	Calculate the maximum size needed for the SAR  	reconstruction buffer from the supplied qos parameters.      	[PATCH] USB speedtouch: send path micro optimizations      	[PATCH] USB speedtouch: kfree_skb -> dev_kfree_skb  	  	Always use dev_kfree_skb.      	[PATCH] USB speedtouch: remove useless NULL pointer checks  	  	The stats field is never NULL.      	[PATCH] USB speedtouch: receive path micro optimization  	  	Make the most discriminating comparison first.      	[PATCH] USB speedtouch: receive code rewrite  	  	Main points:  	- receive buffers are decoupled from urbs, so an urb can be  	resubmitted with a new buffer before the old buffer is processed.  	- the packet reconstruction code is much simpler.  	- locking is simplified by the fact that only the tasklet launches  	receive urbs      	USB: speedtch merge fixups by hand.

[PATCH] x86-64 merge  	  	Lots of changes that have accumulated over the last weeks.  	  	This makes it compile and boot again, Lots of bug fixes, including  	security fixes.  Several speedups.  	  	Only changes x86-64 specific files.  	  	 - Use private copy of siginfo.h (for si_band)  	 - Align 32bit vsyscall coredump (from Roland McGrath)  	 - First steps towards 64bit vsyscall coredump (not working yet)  	 - Use in kernel trampoline for signals  	 - Merge APIC pm update from Pavel/Mikael  	 - Security fix for ioperm (from i386)  	 - Reenable vsyscall dumping for 32bit coredumps  	 - Fix bugs in 32bit coredump that could lead to oopses.  	 - Fix 64bit vsyscalls  	 - Revert change in pci-gart.c: pci_alloc_consistent must use an  	   0xffffffff mask hardcoded.  	 - Fix bug in noexec= option handling  	 - Expo
rt fake_node  	 - Cleanups from Pavel  	 - Disable 32bit vsyscall coredump again.  Still has some problems.  	 - Implement new noexec= and noexec32= options to give a wide choice  	   of support for non executable mappings for 32bit and 64bit processes.  	   The default is now to honor PROT_EXEC, but mark stack and heap  	   PROT_EXEC.  	 - 32bit emulation changes from Pavel: use compat_* types.  	 - (2.4) Use physical address for GART register.  	 - Convert debugreg array to individual members and clean up ptrace  	   access.  This saves 16 byte per task.  	 - (2.4) Use new streamlined context switch code.  This avoids a  	   pipeline stall and pushes the register saving to C code.  	 - Save flags register in context switch  	 - Clean up SMP early bootup.  Remove some unnecessary code.  	 - (2.4) Process numa= option early  	 - (2.4) Merge 2.4 clear_page, copy_*_user, copy_page, memcpy, memset.  	   These are much faster.  clear/copy_page don't force the new page out  	   of memory now which should speed up user processes.  Also full  	   workaround for errata #91.  	 - Some cleanup in pageattr.c code.    	 - Fix warning in i387.h  	 - Fix wrong PAGE_KERNEL_LARGE define.  This fixes a security hole and  	   makes AGP work again.  	 - Fix wrong segment exception handler to not crash.  	 - Fix incorrect swapgs handling in bad iret exception handling  	 - Clean up some boot printks  	 - Micro optimize exception handling preamble.  	 - New reboot handling.  Supports warm reboot and BIOS reboot vector  	   reboot now.  	 - (2.4) Use MTRRs by default in vesafb  	 - Fix bug in put_dirty_page: use correct page permissions for the stack  	 - Fix type of si_band in asm-generic/siginfo.h to match POSIX/glibc  	   (needs checking with other architecture maintainers)  	 - (2.4) Define ARCH_HAS_NMI_WATCHDOG  	 - Minor cleanup in calling.h  	 - IOMMU tuning: only flush the GART TLB when the IOMMU aperture area  	   allocation wraps.  Also don't clear entries until needed.  This  	   should increase IO performance for IOMMU devices greatly.  Still a  	   bit experimental, handle with care.  	 - Unmap the IOMMU aperture from kernel mapping to prevent unwanted CPU  	   prefetches.  	 - Make IOMMU_LEAK_TRACE depend on IOMMU_DEBUG  	 - Fix minor bug in pci_alloc_consistent - always check against the dma  	   mask of the device, not 0xffffffff.  	 - Remove streamining mapping delayed flush in IOMMU: not needed anymore  	   and didn't work correctly in 2.5 anyways.  	 - Fix the bad pte warnings caused by the SMP/APIC bootup.  	 - Forward port 2.4 fix: ioperm was changing the wrong io ports in some  	   cases.  	 - Minor cleanups  	 - Some cleanups in pageattr.c (still buggy)  	 - Fix some bugs in the AGP driver.  	 - Forward port from 2.4: mask all reserved bits in debug register in  	   ptrace.  Previously gdb could crash the kernel by passing invalid  	   values.  	 - Security fix: make sure FPU is in a defined state after an  	   FXSAVE/FXRSTOR exception occurred.  	 - Eats keys on panic (works around a buggy KVM)  	 - Make user.h user includeable.  	 - Disable sign compare warnings for gcc 3.3-hammer  	 - Use DSO for 32bit vsyscalls and dump it in core dumps.  Add dwarf2  	   information for the vsyscalls.  	   Thanks to Richard Henderson for helping me with the nasty parts of  	   it.  I had to do some changes over his patch and it's currently only  	   lightly tested.  Handle with care.  This only affects 32bit programs  	   that use a glibc 3.2 with sysenter support.  	 - Security fixes for the 32bit ioctl handlers.  Also some simplications  	   and speedups.  	 - gcc 3.3-hammer compile fixes for inline assembly  	 - Remove acpi.c file corpse.  	 - Lots of warning fixes  	 - Disable some Dprintks to make the bootup quieter again  	 - Clean up ptrace a bit (together with warning fixes)  	 - Merge with i386 (handle ACPI dynamic irq entries properly)  	 - Disable change_page_attr in pci-gart for now.  Strictly that's  	   incorrect, need to do more testing for the root cause of the current  	   IOMMU problems.  	 - Update defconfig  	 - Disable first prefetch in copy_user that is likely to trigger Opteron  	   Errata #91  	 - More irqreturn_t fixes  	 - Add pte_user and fix the vsyscall ptrace hack in generic code.  	   It's still partly broken  	 - Port verbose MCE handler from 2.4      	[PATCH] USB: bugfix endpoint state  	  	This resolves some problems in the endpoint disable  	patch I sent recently:  	  	  - wasn't un-halting some endpoints  	  - was clobbering ep0 setup in some cases.      	[PATCH] USB speedtouch: set owner fields  	  	I think I'd better work on my plausible deniability...      	[PATCH] USB: uhci Interrupt Latency fix  	  	Paul:  	  	Okay, I think this patch ought to do the trick.  I modified the PM  	suspend/resume code so that on buggy motherboards like yours the suspend  	routine really does a reset, while on normal motherboards the resume  	routine really does a resume.  I haven't tried that part out because,  	truth to tell, I'm a little scared of doing an APM/ACPI suspend.  Not long  	ago I walked away from my computer for about a half-hour, leaving 2.5.69  	running.  When I got back the screen was blank and the machine was totally  	non-responsive.  	  	I changed the delays in reset_hc() to use schedule_timeout() rather than  	wait_ms(), which should make it more friendly.  	  	Finally, I put the USBCMD_FGR back into wakeup_hc().  The reason for it is  	now evident: a wakeup might be the result of a system-initiated event  	as opposed to something requested by a device.      	[PATCH] USB: Addition to previous patch needed for PM UHCI  	  	This is the addition needed to make my previous patch for the UHCI  	controller work properly with PM suspend/resume.      	[PATCH] USB: net2280, control requests can be deferred  	  	To handle control messaging in contexts other than the  	IRQ handler's setup() callback, a bit of automagic needed  	to be removed; and some minor bugs fixed.      	o icmp: cleanups, use C99 array init style, etc      	ACPI: update to 20030522  	  	Found and fixed a reported problem where an AE_NOT_FOUND error occurred occasionally  	during _BST evaluation.  This turned out to be an Owner ID allocation issue where a  	called method did not get a new ID assigned to it.  Eventually, (after 64k calls), the  	Owner ID UINT16 would wraparound so that the ID would be the same as the caller's and the  	called method would delete the caller's namespace.  	  	Implemented extended error reporting for control methods that are aborted due to a  	run-time exception.  Output includes the exact AML instruction that caused the method  	abort, a dump of the method locals and arguments at the time of the abort, and a trace of  	all nested control method calls.  	  	Modified the interpreter to allow the creation of buffers of zero length from the AML  	code. Implemented new code to ensure that no attempt is made to actually allocate a  	memory buffer (of length zero), only a buffer object with a NULL buffer pointer and  	length zero.  A warning is no longer issued when the AML attempts to create a zero-length  	buffer.  	  	Implemented a workaround for the "leading asterisk problem" in _HIDs, _UIDs, and _CIDs.  	One leading asterisk is automatically removed if present in all HID, UID, and CID  	strings.  	  	Implemented full support for _CID methods that return a package of multiple CIDs.  The  	AcpiGetObjectInfo interface now returns a device _HID, _UID, and _CID list if present.  	This required a change to the external interface to pass an ACPI_BUFFER object as a  	parameter, since the _CID list is of variable length.  	  	Fixed a problem with the new AE_SAME_HANDLER exception where handler initialization code  	did not know about this exception.

[PATCH] add hwif->rw_disk callout  	  	Add hwif->rw_disk callout (forward port of 2.4 Alan's work).  	  	"This allows us to remove the PDC4030 special case  	 and also allows for the 372N clock switch stuff."      	[PATCH] _IDE_C cleanup  	  	Since ide_get_best_pio_mode() and ide_pio_timings[]  	are now properly exported in ide-lib.c, we can remove  	dirty include hacks from some legacy drivers.      	Fix preempt on PPC32 - have to set PREEMPT_ACTIVE when preempting kernel stuff.      	PPC32: Export a couple of symbols needed by direct rendering modules.      	[PATCH] kconfig check fixes  	  	- fix a problem with a unset menuconfig, during the config check it's possible  	  conf selects the wrong parent menu and the result is an endless loop.  	- only changable config symbols are relevant during config check,  	  otherwise we get another endless loop.      	[PATCH] IPMI update  	  	 - small cleanups to make the spacing consistent  	 - modifications to the watchdog so it starts the first time  	   you hit it, not the second.  	 - Fix for returning the proper value when starting the  	   sequence number timer.  	 - Fix a parameter name in the watchdog.      	[PATCH] Make ACPI compile again on 64bit/gcc 3.3  	  	Fix prototypes to match function definitions      	[PATCH] elevator core update  	  	The noop io scheduler has a data corrupting bug, because q->last_merge  	doesn't get cleared properly.  So do that in io scheduler core, and  	remove the same code from deadline.  	  	Also kill bio_rq_in_between(), it's not used by anyone anymore. rbtrees  	are the hot thing these days.  	  	And finally, remove a direct test for REQ_CMD in rq flags, use  	blk_fs_request() instead.      	[PATCH] make vt_ioctl ix86isms explicit  	  	sys_ioperm is only implemented on x86 (i386/x86_64).  Make the  	ifdefs in vt_ioctl.c more explicit so the other architectures can  	get rid of their stubs in favour of just using sys_ni_syscall in  	the syscall table.  	  	Maybe we should remove it altogether, it looks like remnants from  	some very early X386 times (ie the Thomas Roell timeframe).      	Merge gamma driver from DRI CVS, and fix it up for 2.5.x changes.  	  	Whether it works or not is unknown. I don't have the hardware.      	DRI CVS update  	 - Pass in the "device" to remapping functions  	 - add radeon CP resume ioctl  	 - remove warnings and stale DMA debug code      	More files to ignore: mtools.conf      	Make KOBJ_NAME_LEN bigger, since at least the ieee1394 code  	has bus ID's that are longer than 16 bytes.

[PATCH] register_chrdev_region() cleanup  	  	register_chrdev_region() sanitized, code in tty_io.c that dealt with it  	cleaned up.      	[PATCH] kobj_map  	  	code responsible for gendisk lookups taken out in drivers/base and  	generalized - now it allows to have a range-based mapping from numbers  	to kobjects for given struct subsystem.      	[PATCH] cdev-cidr, part 1  	  	New object: struct cdev.  It contains a kobject, a pointer to  	file_operations and a pointer to owner module.  These guys have a search  	structure of the same sort as gendisks and chrdev_open() picks  	file_operations from them.  	  	Intended use: embed such animal in driver-owned structure (e.g.  	tty_driver) and register it as associated with given range of device  	numbers.  Generic code will do lookup for such object and use it for the  	rest.  	  	The behaviour of register_chrdev() is _not_ changed - it allocates  	struct cdev and registers it; any old driver will work as if nothing had  	changed.  	  	On that stage we only use it during chrdev_open() to find  	file_operations.  Later it will be cached in inode->i_cdev (and index in  	range - in inode->i_cindex) so that ->open() could get whatever objects  	it wants directly without any special-cased lookups, etc.      	[PATCH] i_cdev/i_cindex  	  	new fields in struct inode - i_cdev and i_cindex.  When we do open() on  	a character device we cache result of cdev lookup in inode and put the  	inode on a cyclic list anchored in cdev.  If we already have that done,  	we don't bother with any lookups.  When inode disappears it's removed  	from the list.  When cdev gets unregistered we remove all cached  	references to it (and remove such inodes from the list).  cdev is held  	until final fput() now.      	[PATCH] support "requeueing" futexes  	  	This addresses a futex related SMP scalability problem of  	glibc. A number of regressions have been reported to the NTPL mailing list  	when going to many CPUs, for applications that use condition variables and  	the pthread_cond_broadcast() API call. Using this functionality, testcode  	shows a slowdown from 0.12 seconds runtime to over 237 seconds (!)  	runtime, on 4-CPU systems.  	  	pthread condition variables use two futex-backed mutex-alike locks: an  	internal one for the glibc CV state itself, and a user-supplied mutex  	which the API guarantees to take in certain codepaths. (Unfortunately the  	user-supplied mutex cannot be used to protect the CV state, so we've got  	to deal with two locks.)  	  	The cause of the slowdown is a 'swarm effect': if lots of threads are  	blocked on a condition variable, and pthread_cond_broadcast() is done,  	then glibc first does a FUTEX_WAKE on the cv-internal mutex, then down a  	mutex_down() on the user-supplied mutex. Ie. a swarm of threads is created  	which all race to serialize on the user-supplied mutex. The more threads  	are used, the more likely it becomes that the scheduler will balance them  	over to other CPUs - where they just schedule, try to lock the mutex, and  	go to sleep. This 'swarm effect' is purely technical, a side-effect of  	glibc's use of futexes, and the imperfect coupling of the two locks.  	  	the solution to this problem is to not wake up the swarm of threads, but  	'requeue' them from the CV-internal mutex to the user-supplied mutex. The  	attached patch adds the FUTEX_REQUEUE feature FUTEX_REQUEUE requeues N  	threads from futex address A to futex address B.  	  	This way glibc can wake up a single thread (which will take the  	user-mutex), and can requeue the rest, with a single system-call.  	  	Ulrich Drepper has implemented FUTEX_REQUEUE support in glibc, and a  	number of people have tested it over the past couple of weeks. Here are  	the measurements done by Sa

[PATCH] Fix dcache_lock/tasklist_lock ranking bug  	  	__unhash_process acquires the dcache_lock while holding the  	tasklist_lock for writing. This can deadlock. Additionally,  	fs/proc/base.c incorrectly assumed that p->pid would be set to 0 during  	release_task.  	  	The patch fixes that by adding a new spinlock to the task structure and  	fixing all references to (!p->pid).  	  	The alternative to the new spinlock would be to hold dcache_lock around  	__unhash_process.  	  	- fs/proc/base.c assumed that p->pid is reset to 0 during exit.  This is  	  not the case anymore.  I now look at the count of the pid structure for  	  PIDTYPE_PID.  	  	- de_thread now tested - as broken as it was before: open handles to  	  /proc/ are either stale or invalid after an exec of a nptl process,  	  if the exec was call from a secondary thread.  	  	- a few lock_kernels removed - that part of /proc doesn't need it.  	  	- additional instances of 'if(current->pid)' replaced with pid_alive.

[PATCH] reiserfs: inode attributes support.  	  	From: Oleg Drokin   	  	This is a forward port of 2.4's inode attributes support for reiserfs.  	Original implementation for 2.4 was performed by Nikita Danilov.  	  	In order to enable this support, one must use "attrs" mount options, eg:  	  		mount /dev/hda1 /mount/pont -t reiserfs -o attrs  	  	Also either the filesystem must have been created with a recent mkreiserfs  	or must have been modified by a recent version of reiserfsck with its  	"--clean-attributes" option.  	  	If that is not done, attributes support will not be enabled and a kernel  	message will be printed.  This is necessary because old kernels left random  	garbage in the place where these attributes now live.  	  	These attributes are totally compatible with ext2's ones.  You can  	manipulate them with chattr/lsattr etc.  	  	Additionally the chattr 'd' option may be used to disable tail packing on a  	specific file or a directory tree.  (The 'd' option normally means "don't  	dump".  reiserfs has overloaded it).      	[PATCH] xirc2ps_cs irq return fix  	  	From zwane  	  	We shutdown the MAC part of the card and have interrupts disabled, interrupt  	gets queued, we reenable interrupts after shutting down device, service the  	interrupt, check status and get 0xff from powered down device.

[PATCH] Fix readdir error return value  	  	From: OGAWA Hirofumi   	  	There are a couple of places in the readdir code where it forgets to set  	the returned error code to -EFAULT, leaving it at the default -EINVAL.  	  	Fix that up, and rename getdents_callback64.count to "result", which makes  	more sense.      	[PATCH] Don't remove inode from hash until filesystem has  	  	From: Neil Brown   	  	When an NFS request arrives, it contains a filehandle which needs to be  	converted to a dentry.  Many filesystems use find_exported_dentry in  	fs/exportfs/expfs.c.  A key part of this on filesystem where a 32bit inode  	number uniquely locates a file is export_iget which calls iget(sb, inum).  	  	iget will either:  	  	   1/ find the inode in the inode cache and return it  	  	 or  	  	   2/ create a new inode and call ->read_inode to load it from the  	      storage device.  	  	export_iget then verifies the inode is really a good inode (->read_inode  	didn't detect any problems) and the right inode (base on generation number  	from the file handle).  	  	For this to work reliably, it is important that whenever an inode is *not* in  	the cache, t
he on-device version is up-to-date.  Otherwise, when read_inode  	loads the inode it will get bad data.  	  	For a file that has not been deleted, this condition always holds: a dirty  	inode is always flushed to disc before the inode is unhashed.  	  	However for a file that is being deleted this condition doesn't (didn't)  	hold.  When iput -> iput_final -> generic_drop_inode -> generic_delete_inode  	is called we would unhash the inode before calling into the filesytem through  	->delete_inode.  	  	So there is a small window between when generic_delete_inode unhashes the  	inode, and when ->delete_inode writes something to disc, where a call to  	->read_inode (for export_iget) might discover what it thinks is a valid  	inode, but is really one that is in the process of being destroyed.  	  	It is this window that I want to close by moving the unhashing to the end of  	generic_delete_inode.      	[PATCH] slab: account for reclaimable caches  	  	We have a problem at present in vm_enough_memory(): it uses smoke-n-mirrors  	to try to work out how much memory can be reclaimed from dcache and icache.  	it sometimes gets it quite wrong, especially if the slab has internal  	fragmentation.  And it often does.  	  	So here we take a new approach.  Rather than trying to work out how many  	pages are reclaimable by counting up the number of inodes and dentries, we  	change the slab allocator to keep count of how many pages are currently used  	by slabs which can be shrunk by the VM.  	  	The creator of the slab marks the slab as being reclaimable at  	kmem_cache_create()-time.  Slab keeps a global counter of pages which are  	currently in use by thus-tagged slabs.  	  	Of course, we now slightly overestimate the amount of reclaimable memory,  	because not _all_ of the icache, dcache, mbcache and quota caches are  	reclaimable.  	  	But I think it's better to be a bit permissive rather than bogusly failing  	brk() calls as we do at present.      	[PATCH] mark shrinkable slabs as being reclaimable  	  	All slabs which can be reclaimed via VM presure are marked as being  	shrinkable, so the core slab code will keep count of their pages.  	  	Except for the one in XFS.  It has strange wrapper stuff.      	[PATCH] Process Attribute API for Security Modules  	  	From: Stephen Smalley   	  	This updated patch against 2.5.69 merges the readdir and lookup routines  	for proc_base and proc_attr, fixes the copy_to_user call in proc_attr_read  	and proc_info_read, moves the new data and code within CONFIG_SECURITY, and  	uses ARRAY_SIZE, per the comments from Al Viro and Andrew Morton.  As  	before, this patch implements a process attribute API for security modules  	via a set of nodes in a /proc/pid/attr directory.  Credit for the idea of  	implementing this API via /proc/pid/attr nodes goes to Al Viro.  Jan Harkes  	provided a nice cleanup of the implementation to reduce the code bloat.      	[PATCH] Process Attribute API for Security Modules (fixlet)  	  	From: Stephen Smalley   	  	This patch, relative to the /proc/pid/attr patch against 2.5.69, fixes the  	mode values of the /proc/pid/attr nodes to avoid interference by the normal  	Linux access checks for these nodes (and also fixes the /proc/pid/attr/prev  	mode to reflect its read-only nature).  	  	Otherwise, when the dumpable flag is cleared by a set[ug]id or unreadable  	executable, a process will lose the ability to set its own attributes via  	writes to /proc/pid/attr due to a DAC failure (/proc/pid inodes are  	assigned the root uid/gid if the task is not dumpable, and the original  	mode only permitted the owner to write).  	  	The security module should implement appropriate permission checking in its  	[gs]etprocattr hook functions.  In the case of SELinux, the setprocattr  	hook function only allows a process to write to its own /proc/pid/attr  	nodes as well as imposing other policy-based restrictions, and the  	getprocattr hook function performs a permission check between the security  	labels of the current process and target process to determine whether the  	operation is permitted.      	[PATCH] /proc/pid inode security labels  	  	From: Stephen Smalley   	  	This patch against 2.5.69-bk adds a hook to proc_pid_make_inode to allow  	security modules to set the security attributes on /proc/pid inodes based on  	the security attributes of the associated task.  This is required by SELinux  	in order to control access to the process state accessible via /proc/pid  	inodes in accordance with the task's security label.  	  	An alternative approach that was considered was to implement an xattr handler  	for /proc/pid inodes.  That approach would still require a hook call from the  	xattr handler to the security module to obtain an xattr value based on the  	task security attributes, so it would add a further level of  	indirection/translation.  The only benefit of implementing an xattr handler  	for the /proc/pid inodes would be that the /proc/pid inode security labels  	could then be exported to userspace.  However, the /proc/pid inode security  	labels are only used internally by the security module for access control  	purposes, and userspace access to the full range of process attributes is  	already provided via the /proc/pid/attr interface.  Consequently, a simple  	hook in proc_pid_make_inode seemed preferable.      	[PATCH] CONFIG_FUTEX  	  	From: Christopher Hoover   	  	Not everyone needs futex support, so it should be optional.  This is needed  	for small platforms.      	[PATCH] CONFIG_EPOLL  	  	From: Christopher Hoover   	  	Here's a patch to drop some more text/data/bss out of 2.5.  This time  	the ``victim'' is eventpollfs (epoll).      	[PATCH] devpts xattr handler for security labels  	  	From: Stephen Smalley   	  	This patch against 2.5.69-bk adds an xattr handler for security labels  	to devpts and corresponding hooks to the LSM API to support conversion  	between xattr values and the security labels stored in the inode  	security field by the security module.  	  	This allows userspace to get and set the security labels on devpts  	nodes, e.g.  so that sshd can set the security label for the pty using  	setxattr, just as sshd already sets the ownership using chown.  	  	SELinux uses this support to protect the pty in accordance with the user  	process' security label.  The changes to the LSM API are general and  	should be re-useable by xattr handlers in other pseudo filesystems to  	support similar security labeling.  The xattr handler for devpts  	includes the same generic framework as in ext[23], so handlers for other  	kinds of attributes can be added easily in the future.      	[PATCH] overcommit root margin  	  	From: Dave Hansen   	  	This patch makes vm_enough_memory(), more likely return failure when  	overcommit_memory==0 and !CAP_SYS_ADMIN.  I'm not sure it's worth having  	another tunable just for this.  	  	I also reworked the documentation a bit.  It should be a lot clearer to  	read now.      	[PATCH] net/sunrpc/sunrpc_syms.c typo fix  	  	From: Frank Cusack   	  	net/sunrpc/sunrpc_syms.c typo fix      	[PATCH] add notify_count for de_thread  	  	From: Manfred Spraul   	  	de_thread is called by exec to kill all threads in the thread group except  	the threads required for exec.  	  	The waiting is implemented by waiting for a wakeup from __exit_signal: If  	the reference count is less or equal to 2, then the waiter is woken up.  If  	exec is called by a non-leader thread, then two threads are required for  	exec.  	  	But if a thread group leader calls exec, then only one thread is required  	for exec.  Thus the hardcoded "2" leads to a superfluous wakeup.  The patch  	fixes that by adding a "notify_count" field to the signal structure.      	[PATCH] extend-check_valid_hugepage_r

This was in some code taken essentially verbatim from the Windows cpia  	driver released under the GPL by STM inc.  that had been incorporated in  	the later versions of the cpia drivera sourceforge.

[PATCH] fix init/do_mounts_rd.c memory leak  	  	From: Hollis Blanchard   	  	Another potential memory leak the Stanford checker caught at 2.5.48: while  	closing and opening floppy disks, buf could be allocated and never freed.      	[PATCH] two PNP memory leaks  	  	From: Hollis Blanchard   	  	Fix two pnp error-path memory leaks, caught by Stanford memory leak checker  	circa 2.5.48.      	[PATCH] Change mmu_gathers into per-cpu data  	  	From: Martin Hicks   	  	Here is a patch that changes mmu_gathers into a per-cpu resource.  It  	includes the changes for all arches except ia64.  I've sent a separate patch  	to David Mosberger for ia64.      	[PATCH] arch/i386/kernel/srat.c cast warning fix  	  	From: William Lee Irwin III   	  	Fix "cast to pointer from integer of a different size".      	[PATCH] ACPI constant overflow fixes  	  	From: William Lee Irwin III   	  	64-bit ACPI fixes      	[PATCH] tulip warning fix  	  	From: William Lee Irwin III   	  	Silence a printk warning.      	[PATCH] use update_mmu_cache() in install_page  	  	Tell the arch that install_page() has just added a page into the pagetables.      	[PATCH] namespace.c fix  	  	Yet another one in the namespace.c series.  	  	The code in graft_tree() used to be correct, but the code  	  	        err = -ENOENT;  	        down(&nd->dentry->d_inode->i_sem);  	        if (IS_DEADDIR(nd->dentry->d_inode))  	                goto out_unlock;  	  	        spin_lock(&dcache_lock);  	        if (IS_ROOT(nd->dentry) || !d_unhashed(nd->dentry)) {  			...  		}  		spin_unlock(&dcache_lock);  	 out_unlock:  	  	was made incorrect in 2.5.29 when  	  	        err = security_sb_check_sb(mnt, nd);  	        if (err)  	                goto out_unlock;  	  	was inserted.  It has happened more often that people overlooked  	a preexisting setting of err.      	[PATCH] kbuild: Get more focus on warnings  	  	Make the default kernel build less verbose, to make warnings show up  	more clearly.      	[PATCH] credits update      	Do a strlcat() to go with the strlcpy().      	[PATCH] A few more strlcpy's for drivers/base/      	[PATCH] sound/* strncpy conversion  	  	This does a lot of cleanup for strncpy->strlcpy, replaces some  	sprintf/snprintf's aswell.  There were only two places where things  	weren't straight forward.  All-in-all a good cleanup though.      	[PATCH] fs/* conversions for strlcpy  	  	I only converted the cases where it was obvious that the intent was to  	truncate on overflow. Lots of places for maxpath/readlink type stuff I  	left alone.      	[PATCH] do_mounts.c strlcpy  	  	Use strlcpy in root_dev_setup()      	[PATCH] return valid vma from get_user_pages for non-MMU systems  	  	A couple of updates for the non-MMU memory managment code:  	  	 - declare the overcommit variables  	 - return a real vma pointer from get_user_pages (it is used by some code)  	 - correct args to vmap()      	[PATCH] Fix snd_seq_queue_find_name()  	  	While going through sound/ for strncpy replacing, I came across this  	routine:  	  	/* return the (first) queue matching with the specified name */  	queue_t *snd_seq_queue_find_name(char *name)  	{  	        int i;  	        queue_t *q;  	  	        for (i = 0; i < SNDRV_SEQ_MAX_QUEUES; i++) {  	                if ((q = queueptr(i)) != NULL) {  	                        if (strncpy(q->name, name, sizeof(q->name)) == 0)  	                                return q;  	                        queuefree(q);  	                }  	        }  	        return NULL;  	}  	  	  	I'm _really_ sure that they meant to use strncmp() here instead.  	  	Like this.      	[PATCH] Fix mac adbhid driver      	[PATCH] drivers/ide/ppc/pmac.c compile fix  	  	This patch fixes the build of drivers/ide/ppc/pmac.c.      	[irda] module refcounts in irlan      	[PATCH] full stop/start on ethtool set speed/duplex/autoneg  	  	* Cleanup ethtool/mii_ioctl sets of speed/duplex/autoneg by  	  stop/set/start driver to ensure sets stick.  Must hold  	  xmit_lock around stop/start.      	[PATCH] module owner for ppp_synctty.c  	  	This patch fixes ppp_synctty.c (used for doing PPP over some synchronous  	serial HDLC links) so that it sets the owner field of the tty line  	discipline it exports, rather than using MOD_INC/DEC_USE_COUNT.  This  	is more or less from Stephen Hemminger.  	  	Please
 apply.  	  	Thanks,  	Paul.      	[PATCH] module refcounts for airport driver  	  	This patch takes out the MOD_INC/DEC_USE_COUNT in the airport (Apple  	wireless ethernet) driver.  The driver already does SET_MODULE_OWNER  	on the netdevice, so the MOD_INC/DEC_USE_COUNT are unnecessary and  	just cause warnings.      	[PATCH] fix cache settings for m68knommu 5407 CLEOPATRA target  	  	Correct the wrong cache setup used on the CLEOPATRA 5407 based board.  	Specifically it enables precise exception mode and write buffering.  	  	Original patch from Alessendra Rubini.      	[PATCH] fix cache settings for m68knommu 5407 MOTOROLA target  	  	Correct the wrong cache setup used on the MOTOROLA 5407 based board.  	Specifically it enables precise exception mode and write buffering.  	  	Original patch from Alessendra Rubini.      	[PATCH] fix ColdFire 5407 cache flushing  	  	This fixes some ColdFire 5407 cache bogosity.  Previous code was pushing  	all cache lines and the invalidating all of the cache.  The push should  	be enough, and now with underlying fixes the the cache setup registers  	it is.  Removed the whole invalidate cycle.  	  	Original patch cam from Allessandro Rubini.      	[PATCH] change get_sb prototype  	  	(i) The prototypes for free_vfsmnt(), alloc_vfsmnt(), do_kern_mount()  	    so far occurred in several individual c files.  Now they are in  	    .  	  	(ii) do_kern_mount() has a third argument name that is typically a  	     constant.  It is called with "rootfs", "nfsd", type->name,  	     "capifs", "usbdevfs", "binfmt_misc" etc.  So, it should have a  	     prototype that expresses this:  	  		do_kern_mount(const char *fstype, int flags, const char *name, void *data);  	  	This makes the ugly cast  	  	-       return do_kern_mount(type->name, 0, (char *)type->name, NULL);  	+       return do_kern_mount(type->name, 0, type->name, NULL);  	  	go away. Now do_kern_mount() calls type->get_sb(), so also get_sb()  	must have a const third argument. That is what the patch below does.  	  	If I am not mistaken, precisely two filesystems do not treat this  	argument as a constant, namely afs and cifs. A separate patch  	gives some cleanup there.      	[PATCH] kernel/* strlcpy conversion      	[PATCH] add dummy VMALLOC_ defines to m68knommu  	  	Add dummy VMALLOC_START and VMALLOC_END defines to m68knommu architectures.  	Some code in the proc filesystem breaks without them now.      	[PATCH] update m68knommu link script with 5282 support  	  	This patch does a couple of things to the m68knommu common linker  	script:  	 - adds support for the 5282 ColdFire CPU  	 - fixes broken setup for the Dragon Engine board      	[PATCH] update m68knommu defconfig  	  	This patch updates the defconfig for the m68knommu architecture.      	[PATCH] lock xtime struct in m68knommu/ColdFire timers  	  	This patch adds appropriate locking around updates of the xtime  	structure for the m68knommu ColdFire architecture timers.      	[PATCH] calculate microsecond offsets for m68knommu/ColdFire timers  	  	This adds offset calculcation to the m68knommu/ColdFire timers.  Allows  	microsecond accuracy for gettimeofday and friends.      	[PATCH] m68knommu/5307 check timer irq pending  	  	Add a function to allow checking if the timer interrupt is pending for  	the m68knommu/5307 CPU.  This is used by the architecture timer code for  	microsecond accurate time calculations.      	[PATCH] m68knommu/5272 check timer irq pending  	  	Add a function to allow checking if the timer interrupt is pending for  	the m68knommu/5272 CPU.  This is used by the architecture timer code for  	microsecond accurate time calculations.      	[PATCH] m68knommu/5407 check timer irq pending  	  	Add a function to allow checking if the timer interrupt is pending for  	the m68knommu/5407 CPU.  This is used by the architecture timer code for  	microsecond accurate time calculations.      	[NET]: post-sysfs netdev cleanup.      	[PATCH] bio splitting  	  	So here it is, easy split support for md and dm. Neil, the changes over  	your version are merely:  	  	- Make a global bio split pool instead of requring device setup of one.  	  Will waste 8 * sizeof(struct bio_pair) of RAM, but... For 2.6 at least  	  it has to be a core functionality.  	  	- Various style changes to follow the kernel guide lines.

[PATCH] Age old cs89x0 register define 'fixes' ?  	  	Remember these? There never was an outcome as to whether or  	not their doing the right thing.  Any complaints from this being  	in 2.4 for nearly a year ?      	[PATCH] fix tlan 64bit check      	[PATCH] xircom init cleanups      	[PATCH] 3c505 printk levels.      	[PATCH] hamachi PCI DMA fix from 2.4  	  	Maintainer fix that went into 2.4 last August with the comments  	"Get hamachi net driver RX working again.  	 Apparently the PCI DMA conversion still has a bug or two left in it..."      	[PATCH] au1000 init cleanups.  	  	Not sure if I incorporated all your feedback on this one last time.  	Bug me if not...      	[PATCH] wireless pcmcia updates  	  	the same patch stil applies..      	[FUTEX]: Fix kernel/compat.c after requeueing futex changes.      	[FUTEX]: Fix kernel/futex.c warning on 64-bit.      	[PATCH] arch/* strlcpy conversion  	  	Obvious strlcpy conversions in arch/*. In fact, mips and mips64 had an  	actual bug in sys_sysmips(). Confirmed with Keith Wesolowski.      	[PATCH] m68knommu/5206e check timer irq pending  	  	Add a function to allow checking if the timer interrupt is pending for  	the m68knommu/5206e CPU.  This is used by the architecture timer code  	for microsecond accurate time calculations.      	[PATCH] m68knommu/5249 check timer irq pending  	  	Add a function to allow checking if the timer interrupt is pending for  	the m68knommu/5249 CPU.  This is used by the architecture timer code for  	microsecond accurate time calculations.      	[PATCH] m68knommu/5206 check timer irq pending  	  	Add a function to allow checking if the timer interrupt is pending for  	the m68knommu/5206 CPU.

[PATCH] m68knommu: add configuration options for ColdFire 5282 support      	[PATCH] m68knommu: ColdFire 5282 support Makefile changes      	[PATCH] m68knommu: add ColdFire 5282 support setup      	[PATCH] moew ColdFire 5282 support  	  	Add ColdFire 5282 support to common ColdFire header file.      	[PATCH] add m68knommu/5282 specific Makefile      	[PATCH] add m68knommu/5282 config init code  	  	This creates specific
ColdFire/5282 configuration initialization.      	[PATCH] add m68knommu/5282 start up code  	  	Start up code for the M5282C3 Motorola ColdFire 5282 evaluation board.  	  	New architecture and board for the m68knommu architecture branch, though  	it is not very different to most existing ColdFire eval boards.      	[PATCH] create SIM header definitions for ColdFire 5282  	  	Create header definitions file to support the ColdFire 5282 CPU.  	Unfortunately its register layout and setup is quite different  	to previous ColdFire CPU family members.      	[PATCH] include SIM header for ColdFire 5282  	  	Modify the common SIM header for all ColdFire CPU's to incldue the  	new 5282 ColdFire defines.      	[PATCH] add support for the DMA of the ColdFire 5282  	  	Add DMA base addresses for the ColdFire 5282 CPU.      	[PATCH] create header support for the ColdFire 5282 PIT timer  	  	Create a header file to support the PIT timer of the ColdFire 5282 CPU.  	This timer is completely different to all previous ColdFire timers.      	[PATCH] add pit timer for m68knommu/5282 CPU support  	  	This code supports the PIT timer of the 5282 ColdFire.

[netdrvr bonding] add 802.3ad support  	  	Contributed by Intel, with updates by  	Jay Vosburgh @ IBM (bonding maintainer)      	[PATCH] OProfile: flush work queue on shutdown  	  	My previous fix was incomplete, we could get the same thing happening  	on the init-failure path. Fix that.      	[PATCH] OProfile: minimize sample error  	  	The code that attempts to reset last_task and in_kernel has a race  	against samples appearing during the handling of the buffers, that  	causes a small number of mis-attribution of samples. Closing the  	window is non-obvious, and not worth it, so we just make it smaller.  	Even without the patch, there seem to be few such "bad" samples  	because its effects are mitigated on a switch into userspace or  	a task switch.      	[PATCH] OProfile: timer usage override  	  	A patch mostly by Will Cohen, adding a parameter to OProfile to  	over-ride use of the perfctr hardware. Useful for testing and  	a host of other things.      	[PATCH] OProfile: fix stale comment      	[PATCH] OProfile: fix d_path() usage  	  	d_path() can return -ENAMETOOLONG these days. Pass it upstream.

[PATCH] add support for 5282 ColdFire to the ColdFire serial header  	  	Add support for the 5282 ColdFire to the common ColdFire serial  	driver header. Also added the additional registers of the 5272,  	they are used to setup a more accurate baud rate timers      	[PATCH] ColdFire serial driver support for 5282 ColdFire  	  	This adds support for the ColdFire 5282 to the ColdFire serial driver.  	  	Only a few small changes, notably the interrupt setup is a little  	different.  Also removed some dead code.      	[PATCH] allow FEC driver config to be used with ColdFire 5282  	  	The ColdFire 5282 CPU also uses the Motorla FEC ethernet core, allow if  	to be selected for that config.      	[PATCH] FEC driver updates to support the ColdFire 5282 CPU (header)  	  	For reasons only Motorola will ever know they decided to use a  	substantially different register layout for the FEC ethernet device on  	the 5282 ColdFire silicon.  This defines an appropriate access structure  	for it.      	[PATCH] remove crt0_fixed.S from m68knommu DragonEngine2 target  	  	Remove crt0_fixed.S from m68knommu DragonEngine2 setup.  	No longer required.      	[PATCH] fix m68knommu DragonEngine2 target setup code  	  	Numerous fixes for the m68knommu DragonEngine2 setup code.  	  	It was out of date relative to more recent kernels.  Original patches  	from Georges Menie.      	[PATCH] remove crt0_himem.S from m68knommu DragonEngine2 target  	  	Remove crt0_himem.S from m68knommu DragenEngine2 config.  	  	It is no longer required.      	[PATCH] single start file for m68knommu DragonEngine2 target  	  	Start code for m68knommu DragonEngine2 target is now all in crt0_ram.S.  	  	This patch moves all the code into this one file.      	[PATCH] remove crt0_rom.S from m68knommu DragonEngine2 target  	  	Remove crt0_rom.S from m68knommu DragonEngine2 target config.  	  	It is no longer required.      	[PATCH] drivers/* strlcpy conversions  	  	Well, this is it for me and strlcpy. I'll leave the rest of the  	non-obvious usages of strncpy to the kernel janitors. Seems like quite a  	few uses really wanted memcpy instead, but I don't have time to  	investigate them all. It does appear that nearly all strncpy's will be  	removable. Obsoleting strncpy will probably atleast make the remaining  	few think about how they are using it.  	  	This is the patch for my trip through drivers/*.      	[PATCH] signal latency improvement  	  	This further optimizes the 'kick wakeup' scheduler feature:  	  	 - do not kick any CPU on UP  	  	 - no need to mark the target task for reschedule - it's enough to send an  	   interrupt to that CPU, that will initiate a signal processing pass.      	[PATCH] IDE: fix "biostimings" and legacy chipsets' boot parameters interaction  	  	"biostimings" cannot be hardcoded to -19, make it -8.  	Code in ide_setup() assumes that everything <= -11 is a legacy  	chipset name, so fe. "ide0=ali14xx ide0=biostimings" will fail  	while "ide0=biostimings ide0=ali14xx" will be okay.      	[PATCH] Probe legacy IDE chipsets in ide_init() instead of in ide_setup()  	  	Legacy here means pdc4030, ali14xx, umc8672, dtc2278, ht6560b and qd65xx.  	They cannot be probed and initialized at a boot parameters' parsing time,  	because probing code depends on not yet ready kernel subsystems.  	  	This change also fixes boot parameters' ordering issue, fe. you could  	pass "ide0=dtc2278 ide0=noautotune" and "noautotune" was catched too late.

[PATCH] make common m68knommu/68328 specific ints.c  	  	Modify the m68knommu/68328 specific ints.c to be the general ints  	handler when building for this sub-architecture. It is just simpler to  	have one for each sub-architecture (which means we currently need 3  	for the 3 prominant m68knommu families). Each can handle the hardware  	setup differences, and there is a few at this level. This doesn't  	really add much code overall, since 2 of the 3 m68knommu architectures  	already had significant specific int handling code.      	[PATCH] don't call 68328 specific int setup  	  	No longer need to call the hardware specific int setup.  	  	This is now done in the common int handler for 68328  	sub-architecture.

[PATCH] const char* to char* update in console.h  	  	From:  Amit Shah   	  	  The read function for consoles in include/linux/console.h contains const  	  char* for a pointer that it will actually modify.

Pointed out by Joern Engel.      	[PATCH] DMA-API typo  	  	From:  Jonathan Corbet   	  	  This fix has been acked by James Bottomley, but has not risen above Linus's  	  threshold.

The originals were obtained from 2.4.21-pre4.      	[PATCH] remove unneeded #define LinuxVersionCode from eata.c  	  	From:  Adrian Bunk   	  	  the patch below removes the unneeded #define LinuxVersionCode from  	  eata.c. It's not used and if it was needed KERNEL_VERSION in  	  include/linux/version.h does the same.      	[PATCH] MAINTAINERS update for SN support  	  	From:  Jesse Barnes   	  	  Quick add to the maintainers file for SN (aka Altix 3000) support in  	  the kernel.      	[PATCH] Remove unused GFP_DMA from include_sound_trident.h  	  	From:  Matthew Wilcox   	  	  These defines are simply not used any more.      	[PATCH] unreachable code in drivers_media_video_cpia_pp.c  	  	From:  Scott Russell   	  	  - Rearranged unreachable code reported via kbugs.org      	[PATCH] NAPI_HOWTO.txt typo + interrupt fix  	  	From:  Jonathan Corbet   	  	  This fixes a couple of little mistakes in Documentation/NAPI_HOWTO.txt;  	  I also updated the interrupt handler stuff while I was at it.  Jamal Hadi  	  Salim has seen and acked it.      	[PATCH] Self-promotion and minor docs updates  	  	From:  Pavel Machek   	  	  This fixes url in ioctls, fixes some kernel parameters, kills comment  	  in tty that is 10+ years old and wrong, and adds me a little  	  credits.      	[PATCH] missing release_region in drivers_cdrom_cm206.c  	  	From:  Scott Russell   	  	  - missing release_region (reported by kbugs.org)  	  - removed extraneous return (Randy Dunlap)      	[PATCH] Better docs for boot-up code  	  	From:  Pavel Machek   	  	  This adds some more commentary to the boot-up code.      	[PATCH] proper APIC suspension  	  	From:  Pavel Machek       	[PATCH] Allow for architectures to override  	  	From:  Stephen Rothwell   	  	  This allows some architecture to override the generic implementations  	  on {get,put}_compat_flock64 as some of them (ia64 and maybe x86_64)  	  will take alignment faults when accessing the loff_t members of struct  	  compat_flock64.  	  	  Requested by David Mosberger, modified by Dave Miller.      	[PATCH] kernel_suspend.c compile warning  	  	From:  Pavel Machek   	  	  This kills a compile warning in swsusp      	[PATCH] Make videodev_proc_destory() __exit  	  	From:  Tom Rini   	  	  The following marks videodev_proc_destory as __exit.  	  	  This is safe as its only caller is marked as __exit as well.      	[PATCH] Cleanup in fs_devpts_inode.c  	  	From: René Scharfe   	  	  This un-complicates a small piece of code of the dev/pts filesystem  	  and decreases the size of the object code by 8 bytes for my build.  	  	  Yay! :)      	[PATCH] fs_autofs4_root.c unused variable  	  	From:  Rusty Russell   	  	  Trivial unused var...      	[PATCH] Typo in isofs_inode.c  	  	From: René Scharfe   	  	  this fixes a trivial error in iso
fs/inode.c, and reformats  	  the surrounding code a bit to (hopefully) enhance clarity.  	  	  i_mtime.tv_nsec was initialized twice, and i_ctime.tv_nsec never      	[PATCH] sx tty_driver add .owner field remove MOD_INC_DEC_USE_COUNT  	  	From:  Hanna Linder       	Linux v2.5.70
