      Pull regmap fix from Mark Brown:
       "Fix registers file in debugfs
        Ensure that the mode reported for the registers file in debugfs is
        accurate by marking it as read only when the define to enable writes
        has not been set.  This is on the edge of being a bug fix but it's
        debugfs and it makes it much easier for users to spot what's going
        wrong when they forget to enable writeability"

      vfs: simplify and shrink stack frame of link_path_walk() · d6bb3e90
      Linus Torvalds authored
      Commit 9226b5b4
       ("vfs: avoid non-forwarding large load after small
      store in path lookup") made link_path_walk() always access the
      "hash_len" field as a single 64-bit entity, in order to avoid mixed size
      accesses to the members.
      However, what I didn't notice was that that effectively means that the
      whole "struct qstr this" is now basically redundant.  We already
      explicitly track the "const char *name", and if we just use "u64
      hash_len" instead of "long len", there is nothing else left of the
      "struct qstr".
      We do end up wanting the "struct qstr" if we have a filesystem with a
      "d_hash()" function, but that's a rare case, and we might as well then
      just squirrell away the name and hash_len at that point.
      End result: fewer live variables in the loop, a smaller stack frame, and
      better code generation.  And we don't need to pass in pointers variables
      to helper functions any more, because the return value contains all the
      relevant information.  So this removes more lines than it adds, and the
      source code is clearer too.

      Pull vfs fixes from Al Viro:
       "double iput() on failure exit in lustre, racy removal of spliced
        dentries from ->s_anon in __d_materialise_dentry() plus a bunch of
        assorted RCU pathwalk fixes"
      The RCU pathwalk fixes end up fixing a couple of cases where we
      incorrectly dropped out of RCU walking, due to incorrect initialization
      and testing of the sequence locks in some corner cases.  Since dropping
      out of RCU walk mode forces the slow locked accesses, those corner cases
      slowed down quite dramatically.
      * 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/viro/vfs:
        be careful with nd->inode in path_init() and follow_dotdot_rcu()

      vfs: avoid non-forwarding large load after small store in path lookup · 9226b5b4
      Linus Torvalds authored
      The performance regression that Josef Bacik reported in the pathname
      lookup (see commit 99d263d4
       "vfs: fix bad hashing of dentries") made
      me look at performance stability of the dcache code, just to verify that
      the problem was actually fixed.  That turned up a few other problems in
      this area.
      There are a few cases where we exit RCU lookup mode and go to the slow
      serializing case when we shouldn't, Al has fixed those and they'll come
      in with the next VFS pull.
      But my performance verification also shows that link_path_walk() turns
      out to have a very unfortunate 32-bit store of the length and hash of
      the name we look up, followed by a 64-bit read of the combined hash_len
      field.  That screws up the processor store to load forwarding, causing
      an unnecessary hickup in this critical routine.
      It's caused by the ugly calling convention for the "hash_name()"
      function, and easily fixed by just making hash_name() fill in the whole
      'struct qstr' rather than passing it a pointer to just the hash value.
      With that, the profile for this function looks much smoother.
