      ptrace: kill trivial tracehooks · a288eecc
      Tejun Heo authored
      At this point, tracehooks aren't useful to mainline kernel and mostly
      just add an extra layer of obfuscation.  Although they have comments,
      without actual in-kernel users, it is difficult to tell what are their
      assumptions and they're actually trying to achieve.  To mainline
      kernel, they just aren't worth keeping around.
      This patch kills the following trivial tracehooks.
      * Ones testing whether task is ptraced.  Replace with ->ptrace test.
      * ptrace_event() wrappers.  Call directly.
      * ptrace_release_task() wrapper.  Call directly.
      * noop
      This doesn't introduce any behavior change.

      [S390] allow setting of upper 32 bit in smp_ctl_set_bit · 859c9651
      Jan Glauber authored
      The bit shift operation in smp_ctl_set_bit does not specify the type
      of the shifted bit so integer is used as default. Therefore it is not
      possible to set bits in the upper 32 bit of the control register if
      the kernel runs in 64 bit mode. Fix this by specifying the type as
      unsigned long.

      ns: Wire up the setns system call · 7b21fddd
      Eric W. Biederman authored
      32bit and 64bit on x86 are tested and working.  The rest I have looked
      at closely and I can't find any problems.
      setns is an easy system call to wire up.  It just takes two ints so I
      don't expect any weird architecture porting problems.
      While doing this I have noticed that we have some architectures that are
      very slow to get new system calls.  cris seems to be the slowest where
      the last system calls wired up were preadv and pwritev.  avr32 is weird
      in that recvmmsg was wired up but never declared in unistd.h.  frv is
      behind with perf_event_open being the last syscall wired up.  On h8300
      the last system call wired up was epoll_wait.  On m32r the last system
      call wired up was fallocate.  mn10300 has recvmmsg as the last system
      call wired up.  The rest seem to at least have syncfs wired up which was
      new in the 2.6.39.
      v2: Most of the architecture support added by Daniel Lezcano <dlezcano@fr.ibm.com>
      v3: ported to v2.6.36-rc4 by: Eric W. Biederman <ebiederm@xmission.com>
      v4: Moved wiring up of the system call to another patch
      v5: ported to v2.6.39-rc6
      v6: rebased onto parisc-next and net-next to avoid syscall  conflicts.
      v7: ported to Linus's latest post 2.6.39 tree.

      Oh - ia64 wiring looks good.

      percpu: Always align percpu output section to PAGE_SIZE · 0415b00d
      Tejun Heo authored
      Percpu allocator honors alignment request upto PAGE_SIZE and both the
      percpu addresses in the percpu address space and the translated kernel
      addresses should be aligned accordingly.  The calculation of the
      former depends on the alignment of percpu output section in the kernel
      The linker script macros PERCPU_VADDR() and PERCPU() are used to
      define this output section and the latter takes @align parameter.
      Several architectures are using @align smaller than PAGE_SIZE breaking
      percpu memory alignment.
      This patch removes @align parameter from PERCPU(), renames it to
      PERCPU_SECTION() and makes it always align to PAGE_SIZE.  While at it,
      add PCPU_SETUP_BUG_ON() checks such that alignment problems are
      reliably detected and remove percpu alignment comment recently added
      in workqueue.c as the condition would trigger BUG way before reaching
      For um, this patch raises the alignment of percpu area.  As the area
      is in .init, there shouldn't be any noticeable difference.
      This problem was discovered by David Howells while debugging boot
      failure on mn10300.
