* bzip2/lzma: clarify the meaning of the CONFIG_RD_ optionsH. Peter Anvin2009-03-281-3/+3
| | | | | | | | | Impact: Kconfig clarification Make it clear that the CONFIG_RD_* options are about what formats are supported, not about what formats are actually being used. Signed-off-by: H. Peter Anvin <hpa@zytor.com>
* bzip2/lzma: move CONFIG_RD_* options under CONFIG_EMBEDDEDH. Peter Anvin2009-03-281-8/+8
| | | | | | | | | | | Impact: reduce Kconfig noise Move the options that control possible initramfs/initrd compressions underneath CONFIG_EMBEDDED. The only impact of leaving these options set to y is additional code in the init section of the kernel; there is no reason to burden non-embedded users with these options. Signed-off-by: H.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | With a sufficiently new compiler and binutils, code which wasn't previously generating .eh_frame sections has begun to. Certain architectures (powerpc, in this case) may generate unexpected relocation formats in response to this, preventing modules from loading. While the new relocation types should probably be handled, revert to the previous behaviour with regards to generation of .eh_frame sections. (This was reported against Fedora, which appears to be the only distro doing any building against gcc-4.4 at present: RH bz#486545.)

Also, since we fully construct phy_bus_id in the _probe() routine, we no longer need ->phy_address and ->mdio_bus fields in ucc_geth_info structure. I wish the patch would be a bit shorter, but it seems like the only way to fix the issue in a sane way. Luckily, the patch has been tested with real PHYs and fixed-link, so no further regressions expected.

| | * dm9000: locking bugfixDavid Brownell2009-03-221-2/+4
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This fixes a locking bug in the dm9000 driver. It calls request_irq() without setting IRQF_DISABLED ... which is correct for handlers that support IRQ sharing, since that behavior is not guaranteed for shared IRQs. However, its IRQ handler then wrongly assumes that IRQs are blocked. So the fix just uses the right spinlock primitives in the IRQ handler. NOTE: this is a classic example of the type of bug which lockdep currently masks by forcibly setting IRQF_DISABLED on IRQ handlers that did not request that flag.

This patch clears the last known values every time the interface is brought up, instead of only when the module is loaded. Without this patch the adjust_link function never updates the hardware after an ifconfig down; ifconfig up. On a full duplex link this causes the tx error counter to increment, even though packets are correctly transmitted, as the default MAC_CR register setting is for half duplex. The tx errors are "no carrier" errors, which should be ignored in full-duplex mode. When MAC_CR is set to "full duplex" mode they are correctly ignored by the hardware. Note that even with this patch the tx error counter can increment if packets are transmitted between "ifconfig up" and the first phy poll interval. An improved solution would use the phy interrupt with phylib, but I haven't managed to make this work 100% robustly yet.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Tulip is currently doing request_irq before it has done its initialization. This is usually not a problem because it hasn't enable interrupts yet, but with DEBUG_SHIRQ on, we call the irq handler when registering the interrupt as a sanity check. This can result in a NULL ptr dereference, so call tulip_init_ring before request_irq, and add a free_ring function to do the freeing now shared with tulip_close.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This patch skips the delivery of conntrack events if the packet was drop due to a race condition in the conntrack insertion.

| | | |/ | | |/| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | On the legacy netif_rx path, I incorrectly tried to optimise the napi_complete call by using __napi_complete before we reenable IRQs. This simply doesn't work since we need to flush the held GRO packets first. This patch fixes it by doing the obvious thing of reenabling IRQs first and then calling napi_complete.

Most code fills struct resource with zeros, so I assume that it is responsibility of the caller of request_resource to initialized it, not the responsibility of request_resource functuion. After 2.6.29 is out, there could be a check for uninitialized fields added to request_resource to avoid crashes like this. Signed-off-by: Mikulas Patocka <mpatocka@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: David S.

The problem is this: - task A is ptracing task B - task B stops on a trace event - task A is woken up and preempts task B - task A calls ptrace on task B, which does ptrace_check_attach() - this calls wait_task_inactive(), which sees that task B is still on the runq - task A goes to sleep for a jiffy - ... Since UML does lots of the above sequences, those jiffies quickly add up to make it slow as hell. This patch solves this by not rescheduling in read_unlock() after ptrace_stop() has woken up the tracer. Thanks to Oleg Nesterov and Ingo Molnar for the feedback.
