| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Schedule removal of the PCMCIA ioctl (and thus kernel support for the pcmcia-cs userspace package) for November 2005. A big "thank you" to Dave Hinds for his great work on supporting PCMCIA in Linux. Things are just done differently by now, so the ongoing work to make PCMCIA behave like any other hotpluggable bus should continue.

* [PATCH] irqpollAlan Cox2005-06-281-0/+15
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Anyone reporting a stuck IRQ should try these options. Its effectiveness varies we've found in the Fedora case. Quite a few systems with misdescribed IRQ routing just work when you use irqpoll. It also fixes up the VIA systems although thats now fixed with the VIA quirk (which we could just make default as its what Redmond OS does but Linus didn't like it historically). A small number of systems have jammed IRQ sources or misdescribes that cause an IRQ that we have no handler registered anywhere for. In those cases it doesn't help.

| * | [PATCH] PCI Allow OutOfRange PIRQ table addressjayalk@intworks.biz2005-06-271-0/+4
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | I updated this to remove unnecessary variable initialization, make check_routing be inline only and not __init, switch to strtoul, and formatting fixes as per Randy Dunlap's recommendations. I updated this to change pirq_table_addr to a long, and to add a warning msg if the PIRQ table wasn't found at the specified address, as per thread with Matthew Wilcox. In our hardware situation, the BIOS is unable to store or generate it's PIRQ table in the F0000h-100000h standard range. This patch adds a pci kernel parameter, pirqaddr to allow the bootloader (or BIOS based loader) to inform the kernel where the PIRQ table got stored. A beneficial side-effect is that, if one's BIOS uses a static address each time for it's PIRQ table, then pirqaddr can be used to avoid the $pirq search through that address block each time at boot for normal PIRQ BIOSes.

Remove all references to PF_FREEZE and PF_FROZEN from all kernel sources except sched.h 3. Fix numerous locations where try_to_freeze is manually done by a driver 4. Remove the argument that is no longer necessary from two function calls. 5. Some whitespace cleanup 6. Clear potential race in refrigerator (provides an open window of PF_FREEZE cleared before setting PF_FROZEN, recalc_sigpending does not check PF_FROZEN). This patch does not address the problem of freeze_processes() violating the rule that a task may only modify its own flags by setting PF_FREEZE.

Quick kdump-howto ================================================================ 1) Download and build kexec-tools. 2) Download and build the latest kexec/kdump (-mm) kernel patchset. Two kernels need to be built in order to get this feature working. A) First kernel: a) Enable "kexec system call" feature: CONFIG_KEXEC=y b) Physical load address (use default): CONFIG_PHYSICAL_START=0x100000 c) Enable "sysfs file system support": CONFIG_SYSFS=y d) Boot into first kernel with the command line parameter "crashkernel=Y@X": For example: "crashkernel=64M@16M". B) Second kernel: a) Enable "kernel crash dumps" feature: CONFIG_CRASH_DUMP=y b) Physical load addreess, use same load address as X in "crashkernel" kernel parameter in d) above, e.g., 16 MB or 0x1000000. CONFIG_PHYSICAL_START=0x1000000 c) Enable "/proc/vmcore support" (Optional, in Pseudo filesystems). CONFIG_PROC_VMCORE=y 3) Boot into the first kernel. 4) Load the second kernel to be booted using: kexec -p <second-kernel> --crash-dump --args-linux --append="root=<root-dev> maxcpus=1 init 1" 5) System reboots into the second kernel when a panic occurs. A module can be written to force the panic, for testing purposes. 6) See Documentation/kdump.txt for how to read the first kernel's memory image and how to analyze it.

* | | | | [PATCH] s390: debug feature changesMichael Holzheu2005-06-251-33/+46
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This patch changes the memory allocation method for the s390 debug feature. Trace buffers had been allocated using the get_free_pages() function before. Therefore it was not possible to get big memory areas in a running system due to memory fragmentation. Now the trace buffers are subdivided into several subbuffers with pagesize. Therefore it is now possible to allocate more memory for the trace buffers and more trace records can be written. In addition to that, dynamic specification of the size of the trace buffers is implemented. It is now possible to change the size of a trace buffer using a new debugfs file instance. When writing a number into this file, the trace buffer size is changed to 'number * pagesize'. In the past all the traces could be obtained from userspace by accessing files in the "proc" filesystem. Now with debugfs we have a new filesystem which should be used for debugging purposes. This patch moves the debug feature from procfs to debugfs. Since the interface of debug_register() changed, all device drivers, which use the debug feature had to be adjusted.
