      These are the bug fixes that have accumulated since 3.3-rc3 in arm-soc.
      The majority of them are regression fixes for stuff that broke during
      the merge 3.3 window.
      The notable ones are:
      * The at91 ata drivers both broke because of an earlier cleanup patch that
        some other patches were based on. Jean-Christophe decided to remove
        the legacy at91_ide driver and fix the new-style at91-pata driver while
        keeping the cleanup patch. I almost rejected the patches for being too
        late and too big but in the end decided to accept them because they
        fix a regression.
      * A patch fixing build breakage from the sysdev-to-device conversion
        colliding with other changes touches a number of mach-s3c files.
      * b0654037 "ARM: orion: Fix Orion5x GPIO regression from MPP cleanup"
        is a mechanical change that unfortunately touches a lot of lines
        that should up in the diffstat.

      Here are a few more fixes for powerpc.  Some are regressions, the rest
      is simple/obvious/nasty enough that I deemed it good to go now.
      Here's also step one of deprecating legacy iSeries support: we are
      removing it from the main defconfig.
      Nobody seems to be using it anymore and the code is nasty to maintain,
      (involves horrible hacks in various low level areas of the kernel) so we
      plan to actually rip it out at some point.  For now let's just avoid
      building it by default.  Stephen will proceed to do the actual removal
      later (probably 3.4 or 3.5).

      i387: re-introduce FPU state preloading at context switch time · 34ddc81a
      Linus Torvalds authored
      After all the FPU state cleanups and finally finding the problem that
      caused all our FPU save/restore problems, this re-introduces the
      preloading of FPU state that was removed in commit b3b0870e
      do not preload FPU state at task switch time").
      However, instead of simply reverting the removal, this reimplements
      preloading with several fixes, most notably
       - properly abstracted as a true FPU state switch, rather than as
         open-coded save and restore with various hacks.
         In particular, implementing it as a proper FPU state switch allows us
         to optimize the CR0.TS flag accesses: there is no reason to set the
         TS bit only to then almost immediately clear it again.  CR0 accesses
         are quite slow and expensive, don't flip the bit back and forth for
         no good reason.
       - Make sure that the same model works for both x86-32 and x86-64, so
         that there are no gratuitous differences between the two due to the
         way they save and restore segment state differently due to
         architectural differences that really don't matter to the FPU state.
       - Avoid exposing the "preload" state to the context switch routines,
         and in particular allow the concept of lazy state restore: if nothing
         else has used the FPU in the meantime, and the process is still on
         the same CPU, we can avoid restoring state from memory entirely, just
         re-expose the state that is still in the FPU unit.
         That optimized lazy restore isn't actually implemented here, but the
         infrastructure is set up for it.  Of course, older CPU's that use
         'fnsave' to save the state cannot take advantage of this, since the
         state saving also trashes the state.
      In other words, there is now an actual _design_ to the FPU state saving,
      rather than just random historical baggage.  Hopefully it's easier to
      follow as a result.

      i387: move TS_USEDFPU flag from thread_info to task_struct · f94edacf
      Linus Torvalds authored
      This moves the bit that indicates whether a thread has ownership of the
      FPU from the TS_USEDFPU bit in thread_info->status to a word of its own
      (called 'has_fpu') in task_struct->thread.has_fpu.
      This fixes two independent bugs at the same time:
       - changing 'thread_info->status' from the scheduler causes nasty
         problems for the other users of that variable, since it is defined to
         be thread-synchronous (that's what the "TS_" part of the naming was
         supposed to indicate).
         So perfectly valid code could (and did) do
      	ti->status |= TS_RESTORE_SIGMASK;
         and the compiler was free to do that as separate load, or and store
         instructions.  Which can cause problems with preemption, since a task
         switch could happen in between, and change the TS_USEDFPU bit. The
         change to TS_USEDFPU would be overwritten by the final store.
         In practice, this seldom happened, though, because the 'status' field
         was seldom used more than once, so gcc would generally tend to
         generate code that used a read-modify-write instruction and thus
         happened to avoid this problem - RMW instructions are naturally low
         fat and preemption-safe.
       - On x86-32, the current_thread_info() pointer would, during interrupts
         and softirqs, point to a *copy* of the real thread_info, because
         x86-32 uses %esp to calculate the thread_info address, and thus the
         separate irq (and softirq) stacks would cause these kinds of odd
         thread_info copy aliases.
         This is normally not a problem, since interrupts aren't supposed to
         look at thread information anyway (what thread is running at
         interrupt time really isn't very well-defined), but it confused the
         heck out of irq_fpu_usable() and the code that tried to squirrel
         away the FPU state.
         (It also caused untold confusion for us poor kernel developers).
      It also turns out that using 'task_struct' is actually much more natural
      for most of the call sites that care about the FPU state, since they
      tend to work with the task struct for other reasons anyway (ie
      scheduling).  And the FPU data that we are going to save/restore is
      found there too.
      Thanks to Arjan Van De Ven <arjan@linux.intel.com> for pointing us to
      the %esp issue.
