      block: add helpers to run flush_dcache_page() against a bio and a request's pages · 2d4dc890
      Ilya Loginov authored
      
      
      Mtdblock driver doesn't call flush_dcache_page for pages in request.  So,
      this causes problems on architectures where the icache doesn't fill from
      the dcache or with dcache aliases.  The patch fixes this.
      
      The ARCH_IMPLEMENTS_FLUSH_DCACHE_PAGE symbol was introduced to avoid
      pointless empty cache-thrashing loops on architectures for which
      flush_dcache_page() is a no-op.  Every architecture was provided with this
      flush pages on architectires where ARCH_IMPLEMENTS_FLUSH_DCACHE_PAGE is
      equal 1 or do nothing otherwise.
      
      See "fix mtd_blkdevs problem with caches on some architectures" discussion
      on LKML for more information.

      net: Generalize socket rx gap / receive queue overflow cmsg · 3b885787
      Neil Horman authored
      Create a new socket level option to report number of queue overflows
      
      Recently I augmented the AF_PACKET protocol to report the number of frames lost
      on the socket receive queue between any two enqueued frames.  This value was
      exported via a SOL_PACKET level cmsg.  AFter I completed that work it was
      requested that this feature be generalized so that any datagram oriented socket
      could make use of this option.  As such I've created this patch, It creates a
      new SOL_SOCKET level option called SO_RXQ_OVFL, which when enabled exports a
      SOL_SOCKET level cmsg that reports the nubmer of times the sk_receive_queue
      overflowed between any two given frames.  It also augments the AF_PACKET
      protocol to take advantage of this new feature (as it previously did not touch
      sk->sk_drops, which this patch uses to record the overflow count).  Tested
      successfully by me.
      
      Notes:
      
      1) Unlike my previous patch, this patch simply records the sk_drops value, which
      is not a number of drops between packets, but rather a total number of drops.
      Deltas must be computed in user space.
      
      2) While this patch currently works with datagram oriented protocols, it will
      also be accepted by non-datagram oriented protocols. I'm not sure if thats
      agreeable to everyone, but my argument in favor of doing so is that, for those
      protocols which aren't applicable to this option, sk_drops will always be zero,
      and reporting no drops on a receive queue that isn't used for those
      non-participating protocols seems reasonable to me.  This also saves us having
      to code in a per-protocol opt in mechanism.
      
      3) This applies cleanly to net-next assuming that commit
      97775007
      
       (my af packet cmsg patch) is reverted

      mn10300: fix kernel build failures when using gcc-4.x · d22a001b
      Mark Salter authored
      
      
      Fix some build failures when using gcc-4.x for MN10300.
      
      Firstly, __get_user() fails to build because the pointer points to a const and
      __gu_val ends up being read-only:
      
      In file included from include/linux/mempolicy.h:62,
                       from init/main.c:50:
      include/linux/pagemap.h: In function 'fault_in_pages_readable':
      include/linux/pagemap.h:394: error: read-only variable '__gu_val' used as 'asm' output
      include/linux/pagemap.h:394: error: read-only variable '__gu_val' used as 'asm' output
      include/linux/pagemap.h:394: error: read-only variable '__gu_val' used as 'asm' output
      include/linux/pagemap.h:400: error: read-only variable '__gu_val' used as 'asm' output
      include/linux/pagemap.h:400: error: read-only variable '__gu_val' used as 'asm' output
      include/linux/pagemap.h:400: error: read-only variable '__gu_val' used as 'asm' output
      make[1]: *** [init/main.o] Error 1
      
      Secondly, gcc-4 doesn't allow casts of lvalues:
      
        UPD     include/linux/compile.h
      arch/mn10300/kernel/rtc.c: In function 'calibrate_clock':
      arch/mn10300/kernel/rtc.c:170: error: lvalue required as left operand of assignment
      arch/mn10300/kernel/rtc.c:172: error: lvalue required as left operand of assignment
      make[1]: *** [arch/mn10300/kernel/rtc.o] Error 1
      
      These are seen with gcc 4.2.1.

      cpumask: use mm_cpumask() wrapper: mn10300 · 7ce1df49
      Rusty Russell authored
      
      
      Makes code futureproof against the impending change to mm->cpu_vm_mask
      (to be a pointer).
      
      It's also a chance to use the new cpumask_ ops which take a pointer
      (the older ones are deprecated, but there's no hurry for arch code).
      
      Also change the actual arg name here to "mm" (which it is), not "task".

      perf: Do the big rename: Performance Counters -> Performance Events · cdd6c482
      Ingo Molnar authored
      
      
      Bye-bye Performance Counters, welcome Performance Events!
      
      In the past few months the perfcounters subsystem has grown out its
      initial role of counting hardware events, and has become (and is
      becoming) a much broader generic event enumeration, reporting, logging,
      monitoring, analysis facility.
      
      Naming its core object 'perf_counter' and naming the subsystem
      'perfcounters' has become more and more of a misnomer. With pending
      code like hw-breakpoints support the 'counter' name is less and
      less appropriate.
      
      All in one, we've decided to rename the subsystem to 'performance
      events' and to propagate this rename through all fields, variables
      and API names. (in an ABI compatible fashion)
      
      The word 'event' is also a bit shorter than 'counter' - which makes
      it slightly more convenient to write/handle as well.
      
      Thanks goes to Stephane Eranian who first observed this misnomer and
      suggested a rename.
      
      User-space tooling and ABI compatibility is not affected - this patch
      should be function-invariant. (Also, defconfigs were not touched to
      keep the size down.)
      
      This patch has been generated via the following script:
      
        FILES=$(find * -type f | grep -vE 'oprofile|[^K]config')
      
        sed -i \
          -e 's/PERF_EVENT_/PERF_RECORD_/g' \
          -e 's/PERF_COUNTER/PERF_EVENT/g' \
          -e 's/perf_counter/perf_event/g' \
          -e 's/nb_counters/nb_events/g' \
          -e 's/swcounter/swevent/g' \
          -e 's/tpcounter_event/tp_event/g' \
          $FILES
      
        for N in $(find . -name perf_counter.[ch]); do
          M=$(echo $N | sed 's/perf_counter/perf_event/g')
          mv $N $M
        done
      
        FILES=$(find . -name perf_event.*)
      
        sed -i \
          -e 's/COUNTER_MASK/REG_MASK/g' \
          -e 's/COUNTER/EVENT/g' \
          -e 's/\<event\>/event_id/g' \
          -e 's/counter/event/g' \
          -e 's/Counter/Event/g' \
          $FILES
      
      ... to keep it as correct as possible. This script can also be
      used by anyone who has pending perfcounters patches - it converts
      a Linux kernel tree over to the new naming. We tried to time this
      change to the point in time where the amount of pending patches
      is the smallest: the end of the merge window.
      
      Namespace clashes were fixed up in a preparatory patch - and some
      stylistic fallout will be fixed up in a subsequent patch.
      
      ( NOTE: 'counters' are still the proper terminology when we deal
        with hardware registers - and these sed scripts are a bit
        over-eager in renaming them. I've undone some of that, but
        in case there's something left where 'counter' would be
        better than 'event' we can undo that on an individual basis
        instead of touching an otherwise nicely automated patch. )

      This sockopt goes in line with SO_TYPE and SO_PROTOCOL. It makes it
      possible for userspace programs to pass around file descriptors — I
      am referring to arguments-to-functions, but it may even work for the
      fd passing over UNIX sockets — without needing to also pass the
      auxiliary information (PF_INET6/IPPROTO_TCP).

      net: implement a SO_PROTOCOL getsockoption · 49c794e9
      Jan Engelhardt authored
      
      
      Similar to SO_TYPE returning the socket type, SO_PROTOCOL allows to
      retrieve the protocol used with a given socket.
      
      I am not quite sure why we have that-many copies of socket.h, and why
      the values are not the same on all arches either, but for where hex
      numbers dominate, I use 0x1029 for SO_PROTOCOL as that seems to be
      the next free unused number across a bunch of operating systems, or
      so Google results make me want to believe. SO_PROTOCOL for others
      just uses the next free Linux number, 38.

      mm: Pass virtual address to [__]p{te,ud,md}_free_tlb() · 9e1b32ca
      Benjamin Herrenschmidt authored
      
      
      mm: Pass virtual address to [__]p{te,ud,md}_free_tlb()
      
      Upcoming paches to support the new 64-bit "BookE" powerpc architecture
      will need to have the virtual address corresponding to PTE page when
      freeing it, due to the way the HW table walker works.
      
      Basically, the TLB can be loaded with "large" pages that cover the whole
      virtual space (well, sort-of, half of it actually) represented by a PTE
      page, and which contain an "indirect" bit indicating that this TLB entry
      RPN points to an array of PTEs from which the TLB can then create direct
      entries. Thus, in order to invalidate those when PTE pages are deleted,
      we need the virtual address to pass to tlbilx or tlbivax instructions.
      
      The old trick of sticking it somewhere in the PTE page struct page sucks
      too much, the address is almost readily available in all call sites and
      almost everybody implemets these as macros, so we may as well add the
      argument everywhere. I added it to the pmd and pud variants for consistency.

      kmap_types: make most arches use generic header file · e4c9dd0f
      Randy Dunlap authored
      
      
      Convert most arches to use asm-generic/kmap_types.h.
      
      Move the KM_FENCE_ macro additions into asm-generic/kmap_types.h,
      controlled by __WITH_KM_FENCE from each arch's kmap_types.h file.
      
      Would be nice to be able to add custom KM_types per arch, but I don't yet
      see a nice, clean way to do that.
      
      Built on x86_64, i386, mips, sparc, alpha(tonyb), powerpc(tonyb), and
      68k(tonyb).
      
      Note: avr32 should be able to remove KM_PTE2 (since it's not used) and
      then just use the generic kmap_types.h file.  Get avr32 maintainer
      approval.
