* net: Remove unused parameter from fill method in fib_rules_ops.Rami Rosen2009-05-201-1/+0
| | | | | | | | | | | | The netlink message header (struct nlmsghdr) is an unused parameter in fill method of fib_rules_ops struct. This patch removes this parameter from this method and fixes the places where this method is called. (include/net/fib_rules.h) Signed-off-by: Rami Rosen <ramirose@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: David S.

The RS is sent from every link local adress that's assigned to the tunnel interface. It's directed to the (guessed) linklocal address of the router and is sent through the tunnel. Better: send to ff02::2 encapsuled in unicast directed to router-v4. Signed-off-by: Sascha Hlusiak <contact@saschahlusiak.de> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
* net: release dst entry in dev_hard_start_xmit()Eric Dumazet2009-05-181-0/+3
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | One point of contention in high network loads is the dst_release() performed when a transmited skb is freed. This is because NIC tx completion calls dev_kree_skb() long after original call to dev_queue_xmit(skb). CPU cache is cold and the atomic op in dst_release() stalls. On SMP, this is quite visible if one CPU is 100% handling softirqs for a network device, since dst_clone() is done by other cpus, involving cache line ping pongs. It seems right place to release dst is in dev_hard_start_xmit(), for most devices but ones that are virtual, and some exceptions. David Miller suggested to define a new device flag, set in alloc_netdev_mq() (so that most devices set it at init time), and carefuly unset in devices which dont want a NULL skb->dst in their ndo_start_xmit(). List of devices that must clear this flag is : - loopback device, because it calls netif_rx() and quoting Patrick : "ip_route_input() doesn't accept loopback addresses, so loopback packets already need to have a dst_entry attached." - appletalk/ipddp.c : needs skb->dst in its xmit function - And all devices that call again dev_queue_xmit() from their xmit function (as some classifiers need skb->dst) : bonding, vlan, macvlan, eql, ifb, hdlc_fr Signed-off-by: Eric Dumazet <dada1@cosmosbay.com> Signed-off-by: David S.

* syscall: Implement a convinience function restart_syscallEric W. Biederman2009-05-181-0/+6
| | | | | | | | | | | Currently when we have a signal pending we have the functionality to restart that the current system call. There are other cases such as nasty lock ordering issues where it makes sense to have a simple fix that uses try lock and restarts the system call. Buying time to figure out how to rework the locking strategy. Signed-off-by: Eric W. Biederman <ebiederm@aristanetworks.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
* net: TX_RING and packet mmapJohann Baudy2009-05-182-5/+18
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | New packet socket feature that makes packet socket more efficient for transmission. - It reduces number of system call through a PACKET_TX_RING mechanism, based on PACKET_RX_RING (Circular buffer allocated in kernel space which is mmapped from user space). - It minimizes CPU copy using fragmented SKB (almost zero copy).

| * | libata: Media rotation rate and form factor heuristicsMartin K. Petersen2009-05-151-0/+28
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This patch provides new heuristics for parsing both the form factor and media rotation rate ATA IDENFITY words. The reported ATA version must be 7 or greater and the device must return values defined as valid in the standard. Only then are the characteristics reported to SCSI via the VPD B1 page. This seems like a reasonable compromise to me considering that we have been shipping several kernel releases that key off the rotation rate bit without any version checking whatsoever.

Work is progressing to switch away from pdflush as the process backing for flushing out dirty data. So it seems pointless to add more knobs to control pdflush threads. The original author of the patch did not have any specific use cases for adding the knobs, so we can easily revert this before 2.6.30 to avoid having to maintain this API forever.

Now all platform_driver is registered by platform_driver_register, which makes probe()/release()/... of platform_driver passed parameter of platform_device *, so platform driver can get platform_data from platform_device; 2. Other kind of devices do not need to use platform_data, we can decrease size of device if moving it to platform_device. Taking into consideration of thousands of files to be fixed and they can't be finished in one night(maybe it will take a long time), so we keep platform_data in device to allow two kind of cases coexist until all platform devices pass its platfrom data from platform_device->platform_data. All patches to do this kind of conversion are welcome. As we don't really want to do it, it was a bad idea.

As the result, it's safe to use to dispose of new superblock on ->get_sb() failure exits - nobody will see the sucker until it's all over. Equivalent using up_write/deactivate_super is safe for that purpose if superblock is either safe to use or has NULL ->s_root when we unlock. Normally filesystems take the required precautions, but a) we do have bugs in that area in some of them. b) up_write/deactivate_super sequence is extremely common, so the helper makes sense anyway.

In OSD2r01-r04 it was aligned on 2 bytes. (This is because in OSD2r01 the complete element was 8 bytes padded at end but the header was not adjusted and caused permanent miss-alignment.) OSD1 elements are not padded and might be or might not be aligned. OSD1 is still supported. In this code we do all the code re-factoring to separate OSD1/OSD2 differences but do not change actual wire format. All wire format changes will happen in one patch later, for bisect-ability.

The only reference to them is through any outstanding exchanges pending on the rogue ports. If the module is removed while a retry is set on a rogue port (say a Plogi retry for instance), this retry is not cancelled because there is no reference to the rogue port in the discovery rports list. Thus the local port can clean itself up, delete the exchange pool, and then the rogue port timeout can fire and try to start up another exchange. This patch tracks the rogue ports in a new list disc->rogue_rports. Creating a new list instead of using the disc->rports list keeps remote port code change to a minimum. 1) Whenever a rogue port is created, it is immediately added to the disc->rogue_rports list. 2) When the rogues port goes to ready, it is removed from the rogue list and the real remote port is added to the disc->rports list 3) The removal of the rogue from the disc->rogue_rports list is done in the context of the fc_rport_work() workQ thread in discovery callback. 4) Real rports are removed from the disc->rports list like before. Lookup is done only in the real rports list. This avoids making large changes to the remote port code. 5) In fc_disc_stop_rports, the rogues list is traversed in addition to the real list to stop the rogue ports and issue logoffs on them. This way, rogue ports get cleaned up when the local port goes away. 6) rogue remote ports are not removed from the list right away, but removed late in fc_rport_work() context, multiple threads can find the same remote port in the list and call rport_logoff(). Rport_logoff() only continues with the logoff if port is not in NONE state, thus preventing multiple logoffs and multiple list deletions. 7) Since the rport is removed from the disc list at a later stage (in the disc callback), incoming frames can find the rport even if rport_logoff() has been called on the rport. When rport_logoff() is called, the rport state is set to NONE, and we are trying to cancel all exchanges and retries on that port. While in this state, if an incoming Plogi/Prli/Logo or other frames match the rport, we should not reply because the rport is in the NONE state. Just drop the frame, since the rport will be deleted soon in the disc callback (fc_rport_work) 8) In fc_disc_single(), remove rport lookup and call to fc_disc_del_target. fc_disc_single() is called from recv_rscn_req() where rport lookup and rport_logoff is already done.

This patch adds a multi-touch (MT) protocol which allows drivers to report details for an arbitrary number of fingers. The driver sends a SYN_MT_REPORT event via the input_mt_sync() function when a complete finger has been reported. In order to stay compatible with existing applications, the data reported in a finger packet must not be recognized as single-touch events. In addition, all finger data must bypass input filtering, since subsequent events of the same type refer to different fingers. A set of ABS_MT events with the desired properties are defined. The events are divided into categories, to allow for partial implementation. The minimum set consists of ABS_MT_TOUCH_MAJOR, ABS_MT_POSITION_X and ABS_MT_POSITION_Y, which allows for multiple fingers to be tracked. If the device supports it, the ABS_MT_WIDTH_MAJOR may be used to provide the size of the approaching finger. Anisotropy and direction may be specified with ABS_MT_TOUCH_MINOR, ABS_MT_WIDTH_MINOR and ABS_MT_ORIENTATION. Devices with more granular information may specify general shapes as blobs, i.e., as a sequence of rectangular shapes grouped together by a ABS_MT_BLOB_ID. Finally, the ABS_MT_TOOL_TYPE may be used to specify whether the touching tool is a finger or a pen. Signed-off-by: Henrik Rydberg <rydberg@euromail.se> Signed-off-by: Dmitry Torokhov <dtor@mail.ru>

But NR_CPUS proportional isn't good calculation. In general, possibility of lock contention is proportional to the number of online cpus, not theorical maximum cpus (NR_CPUS). The current kernel has generic percpu-counter stuff. using it is right way. it makes code simplify and percpu_counter_read_positive() don't make underflow issue.

This patch moves it from Microblaze and PowerPC implementations and makes it common code. Fixes this sparc64 allmodconfig build error (at least): drivers/leds/leds-gpio.c: In function `gpio_led_init': drivers/leds/leds-gpio.c:295: error: implicit declaration of function `of_register_platform_driver' drivers/leds/leds-gpio.c: In function `gpio_led_exit': drivers/leds/leds-gpio.c:311: error: implicit declaration of function `of_unregister_platform_driver' Signed-off-by: Grant Likely <grant.likely@secretlab.ca> Acked-by: David S.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This fixes the problem introduced by commit 3bfacef412 (get rid of special-casing the /sbin/loader on alpha): osf/1 ecoff binary segfaults when binfmt_aout built as module. That happens because aout binary handler gets on the top of the binfmt list due to late registration, and kernel attempts to execute the binary without preparatory work that must be done by binfmt_loader. Fixed by changing the registration order of the default binfmt handlers using list_add_tail() and introducing insert_binfmt() function which places new handler on the top of the binfmt list. This might be generally useful for installing arch-specific frontends for default handlers or just for overriding them.
