      loop: remove the incorrect write_begin/write_end shortcut · 456be148
      Christoph Hellwig authored
      Currently the loop device tries to call directly into write_begin/write_end
      instead of going through ->write if it can.  This is a fairly nasty shortcut
      as write_begin and write_end are only callbacks for the generic write code
      and expect to be called with filesystem specific locks held.
      This code currently causes various issues for clustered filesystems as it
      doesn't take the required cluster locks, and it also causes issues for XFS
      as it doesn't properly lock against the swapext ioctl as called by the
      defragmentation tools.  This in case causes data corruption if
      defragmentation hits a busy loop device in the wrong time window, as
      reported by RH QA.
      The reason why we have this shortcut is that it saves a data copy when
      doing a transformation on the loop device, which is the technical term
      for using cryptoloop (or an XOR transformation).  Given that cryptoloop
      has been deprecated in favour of dm-crypt my opinion is that we should
      simply drop this shortcut instead of finding complicated ways to to
      introduce a formal interface for this shortcut.

      x86/PCI: use host bridge _CRS info on ASUS M2V-MX SE · 29cf7a30
      Paul Menzel authored
      In summary, this DMI quirk uses the _CRS info by default for the ASUS
      M2V-MX SE by turning on `pci=use_crs` and is similar to the quirk
      added by commit 2491762c ("x86/PCI: use host bridge _CRS info on
      ASRock ALiveSATA2-GLAN") whose commit message should be read for further
      Since commit 3e3da00c ("x86/pci: AMD one chain system to use pci
      read out res") Linux gives the following oops:

      Trusting the ACPI _CRS information (`pci=use_crs`) fixes this problem.
          $ dmesg | grep -i crs # with the quirk
          PCI: Using host bridge windows from ACPI; if necessary, use "pci=nocrs" and report a bug
      The match has to be against the DMI board entries though since the vendor entries are not populated.
          DMI: System manufacturer System Product Name/M2V-MX SE, BIOS 0304    10/30/2007
      This quirk should be removed when `pci=use_crs` is enabled for machines
      from 2006 or earlier or some other solution is implemented.
      Using coreboot [1] with this board the problem does not exist but this
      quirk also does not affect it either. To be safe though the check is
      tightened to only take effect when the BIOS from American Megatrends is
              15:13 < ruik> but coreboot does not need that
              15:13 < ruik> because i have there only one root bus
              15:13 < ruik> the audio is behind a bridge
