      xen/boot: Disable BIOS SMP MP table search. · bd49940a
      Konrad Rzeszutek Wilk authored
      As the initial domain we are able to search/map certain regions
      of memory to harvest configuration data. For all low-level we
      use ACPI tables - for interrupts we use exclusively ACPI _PRT
      (so DSDT) and MADT for INT_SRC_OVR.
      
      The SMP MP table is not used at all. As a matter of fact we do
      not even support machines that only have SMP MP but no ACPI tables.
      
      Lets follow how Moorestown does it and just disable searching
      for BIOS SMP tables.
      
      This also fixes an issue on HP Proliant BL680c G5 and DL380 G6:

      which is that ioremap would end up mapping 0xff using _PAGE_IOMAP
      (which is what early_ioremap sticks as a flag) - which meant
      we would get MFN 0xFF (pte ff461, which is OK), and then it would
      also map 0x100 (b/c ioremap tries to get page aligned request, and
      it was trying to map 0xf4fa0 + PAGE_SIZE - so it mapped the next page)
      as _PAGE_IOMAP. Since 0x100 is actually a RAM page, and the _PAGE_IOMAP
      bypasses the P2M lookup we would happily set the PTE to 1000461.
      Xen would deny the request since we do not have access to the
      Machine Frame Number (MFN) of 0x100. The P2M[0x100] is for example
      0x80140.

      Pull workqueue / powernow-k8 fix from Tejun Heo:
       "This is the fix for the bug where cpufreq/powernow-k8 was tripping
        BUG_ON() in try_to_wake_up_local() by migrating workqueue worker to a
        different CPU.
      
          https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=47301
      
        As discussed, the fix is now two parts - one to reimplement
        work_on_cpu() so that it doesn't create a new kthread each time and
        the actual fix which makes powernow-k8 use work_on_cpu() instead of
        performing manual migration.
      
        While pretty late in the merge cycle, both changes are on the safer
        side.  Jiri and I verified two existing users of work_on_cpu() and
        Duncan confirmed that the powernow-k8 fix survived about 18 hours of

      cpufreq/powernow-k8: workqueue user shouldn't migrate the kworker to another CPU · 6889125b
      Tejun Heo authored
      powernowk8_target() runs off a per-cpu work item and if the
      cpufreq_policy->cpu is different from the current one, it migrates the
      kworker to the target CPU by manipulating current->cpus_allowed.  The
      function migrates the kworker back to the original CPU but this is
      still broken.  Workqueue concurrency management requires the kworkers
      to stay on the same CPU and powernowk8_target() ends up triggerring
      BUG_ON(rq != this_rq()) in try_to_wake_up_local() if it contends on
      fidvid_mutex and sleeps.
      
      It is unclear why this bug is being reported now.  Duncan says it
      appeared to be a regression of 3.6-rc1 and couldn't reproduce it on
      3.5.  Bisection seemed to point to 63d95a91 "workqueue: use @pool
      instead of @gcwq or @cpu where applicable" which is an non-functional
      change.  Given that the reproduce case sometimes took upto days to
      trigger, it's easy to be misled while bisecting.  Maybe something made
      contention on fidvid_mutex more likely?  I don't know.
      
      This patch fixes the bug by using work_on_cpu() instead if @pol->cpu
      isn't the same as the current one.  The code assumes that
      cpufreq_policy->cpu is kept online by the caller, which Rafael tells
      me is the case.

      The existing work_on_cpu() implementation is hugely inefficient.  It
      creates a new kthread, execute that single function and then let the
      kthread die on each invocation.
      
      Now that system_wq can handle concurrent executions, there's no
      advantage of doing this.  Reimplement work_on_cpu() using system_wq
      which makes it simpler and way more efficient.
      
      stable: While this isn't a fix in itself, it's needed to fix a
              workqueue related bug in cpufreq/powernow-k8.  AFAICS, this
              shouldn't break other existing users.

      md: make sure metadata is updated when spares are activated or removed. · 6dafab6b
      NeilBrown authored
      
      
      It isn't always necessary to update the metadata when spares are
      removed as the presence-or-not of a spare isn't really important to
      the integrity of an array.
      Also activating a spare doesn't always require updating the metadata
      as the update on 'recovery-completed' is usually sufficient.
      
      However the introduction of 'replacement' devices have made these
      transitions sometimes more important.  For example the 'Replacement'
      flag isn't cleared until the original device is removed, so we need
      to ensure a metadata update after that 'spare' is removed.
      
      So set MD_CHANGE_DEVS whenever a spare is activated or removed, to
      complement the current situation where it is set when a spare is added
      or a device is failed (or a number of other less common situations).
      
      This is suitable for -stable as out-of-data metadata could lead
      to data corruption.
      This is only relevant for 3.3 and later 9when 'replacement' as
      introduced.

      md/raid5: fix calculate of 'degraded' when a replacement becomes active. · e5c86471
      NeilBrown authored
      
      
      When a replacement device becomes active, we mark the device that it
      replaces as 'faulty' so that it can subsequently get removed.
      However 'calc_degraded' only pays attention to the primary device, not
      the replacement, so the array appears to become degraded, which is
      wrong.
      
      So teach 'calc_degraded' to consider any replacement if a primary
      device is faulty.
      
      This is suitable for -stable as an incorrect 'degraded' value can
      confuse md and could lead to data corruption.
      This is only relevant for 3.3 and later.

      .
      
      While this patch seemed like a good idea and did help some workloads,
      it hurts other workloads.
      Large sequential O_DIRECT writes were faster,
      Small random O_DIRECT writes were slower.
      
      Other changes (batching RAID5 writes) have improved the sequential
      writes using a different mechanism, so the net result of this patch
      is definitely negative.  So revert it.

        too.

        off, on and then off (and stay off).  The fix is on the safer side.

      workqueue: always clear WORKER_REBIND in busy_worker_rebind_fn() · 960bd11b
      Lai Jiangshan authored
      busy_worker_rebind_fn() didn't clear WORKER_REBIND if rebinding failed
      (CPU is down again).  This used to be okay because the flag wasn't
      used for anything else.
      
      However, after 25511a47
      
       "workqueue: reimplement CPU online rebinding

      workers to rebind.  If not cleared, the worker may confuse the next
      CPU_UP cycle by having REBIND spuriously set or oops / get stuck by
      prematurely calling idle_worker_rebind().

      memory hotplug: fix section info double registration bug · f14851af
      qiuxishi authored
      
      
      There may be a bug when registering section info.  For example, on my
      Itanium platform, the pfn range of node0 includes the other nodes, so
      other nodes' section info will be double registered, and memmap's page
      count will equal to 3.
      
        node0: start_pfn=0x100,    spanned_pfn=0x20fb00, present_pfn=0x7f8a3, => 0x000100-0x20fc00
        node1: start_pfn=0x80000,  spanned_pfn=0x80000,  present_pfn=0x80000, => 0x080000-0x100000
        node2: start_pfn=0x100000, spanned_pfn=0x80000,  present_pfn=0x80000, => 0x100000-0x180000
        node3: start_pfn=0x180000, spanned_pfn=0x80000,  present_pfn=0x80000, => 0x180000-0x200000
      
        free_all_bootmem_node()
      	register_page_bootmem_info_node()
      		register_page_bootmem_info_section()
      
      When hot remove memory, we can't free the memmap's page because
      page_count() is 2 after put_page_bootmem().
      
        sparse_remove_one_section()
      	free_section_usemap()
      		free_map_bootmem()
      			put_page_bootmem()

      mm/page_alloc: fix the page address of higher page's buddy calculation · 0ba8f2d5
      Li Haifeng authored
      The heuristic method for buddy has been introduced since commit
      43506fad
      
       ("mm/page_alloc.c: simplify calculation of combined index
      of adjacent buddy lists").  But the page address of higher page's buddy
      was wrongly calculated, which will lead page_is_buddy to fail for ever.
      IOW, the heuristic method would be disabled with the wrong page address
      of higher page's buddy.
      
      Calculating the page address of higher page's buddy should be based
      higher_page with the offset between index of higher page and index of
      higher page's buddy.

      drivers/rtc/rtc-twl.c: ensure all interrupts are disabled during probe · 8dcebaa9
      Kevin Hilman authored
      
      
      On some platforms, bootloaders are known to do some interesting RTC
      programming.  Without going into the obscurities as to why this may be
      the case, suffice it to say the the driver should not make any
      assumptions about the state of the RTC when the driver loads.  In
      particular, the driver probe should be sure that all interrupts are
      disabled until otherwise programmed.
      
      This was discovered when finding bursty I2C traffic every second on
      Overo platforms.  This I2C overhead was keeping the SoC from hitting
      deep power states.  The cause was found to be the RTC firing every
      second on the I2C-connected TWL PMIC.
      
      Special thanks to Felipe Balbi for suggesting to look for a rogue driver
      as the source of the I2C traffic rather than the I2C driver itself.
      
      Special thanks to Steve Sakoman for helping track down the source of the
      continuous RTC interrups on the Overo boards.

      compiler.h: add __visible · 9a858dc7
      Andi Kleen authored
      
      
      gcc 4.6+ has support for a externally_visible attribute that prevents the
      optimizer from optimizing unused symbols away.  Add a __visible macro to
      use it with that compiler version or later.
      
      This is used (at least) by the "Link Time Optimization" patchset.
