      Merge branch 'parisc-3.14' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/deller/parisc-linux · 69048e01
      Linus Torvalds authored
      Pull parisc updates from Helge Deller:
       "The three major changes in this patchset is a implementation for
        flexible userspace memory maps, cache-flushing fixes (again), and a
        long-discussed ABI change to make EWOULDBLOCK the same value as
        EAGAIN.
      
        parisc has been the only platform where we had EWOULDBLOCK != EAGAIN
        to keep HP-UX compatibility.  Since we will probably never implement
        full HP-UX support, we prefer to drop this compatibility to make it
        easier for us with Linux userspace programs which mostly never checked
        for both values.  We don't expect major fall-outs because of this
        change, and if we face some, we will simply rebuild the necessary
        applications in the debian archives"
      
      * 'parisc-3.14' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/deller/parisc-linux:
        parisc: add flexible mmap memory layout support
        parisc: Make EWOULDBLOCK be equal to EAGAIN on parisc
        parisc: convert uapi/asm/stat.h to use native types only
        parisc: wire up sched_setattr and sched_getattr
        parisc: fix cache-flushing
        parisc/sti_console: prefer Linux fonts over built-in ROM fonts

      hpfs: optimize quad buffer loading · 1c0b8a7a
      Mikulas Patocka authored
      
      
      HPFS needs to load 4 consecutive 512-byte sectors when accessing the
      directory nodes or bitmaps.  We can't switch to 2048-byte block size
      because files are allocated in the units of 512-byte sectors.
      
      Previously, the driver would allocate a 2048-byte area using kmalloc,
      copy the data from four buffers to this area and eventually copy them
      back if they were modified.
      
      In the current implementation of the buffer cache, buffers are allocated
      in the pagecache.  That means that 4 consecutive 512-byte buffers are
      stored in consecutive areas in the kernel address space.  So, we don't
      need to allocate extra memory and copy the content of the buffers there.
      
      This patch optimizes the code to avoid copying the buffers.  It checks
      if the four buffers are stored in contiguous memory - if they are not,
      it falls back to allocating a 2048-byte area and copying data there.

      hpfs: remember free space · 2cbe5c76
      Mikulas Patocka authored
      
      
      Previously, hpfs scanned all bitmaps each time the user asked for free
      space using statfs.  This patch changes it so that hpfs scans the
      bitmaps only once, remembes the free space and on next invocation of
      statfs it returns the value instantly.
      
      New versions of wine are hammering on the statfs syscall very heavily,
      making some games unplayable when they're stored on hpfs, with load
      times in minutes.
      
      This should be backported to the stable kernels because it fixes
      user-visible problem (excessive level load times in wine).
