      include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking implicit slab.h inclusion from percpu.h
      
      percpu.h is included by sched.h and module.h and thus ends up being
      included when building most .c files.  percpu.h includes slab.h which
      in turn includes gfp.h making everything defined by the two files
      universally available and complicating inclusion dependencies.
      
      percpu.h -> slab.h dependency is about to be removed.  Prepare for
      this change by updating users of gfp and slab facilities include those
      headers directly instead of assuming availability.  As this conversion
      needs to touch large number of source files, the following script is
      used as the basis of conversion.
      
        http://userweb.kernel.org/~tj/misc/slabh-sweep.py
      
      
      
      The script does the followings.
      
      * Scan files for gfp and slab usages and update includes such that
        only the necessary includes are there.  ie. if only gfp is used,
        gfp.h, if slab is used, slab.h.
      
      * When the script inserts a new include, it looks at the include
        blocks and try to put the new include such that its order conforms
        to its surrounding.  It's put in the include block which contains
        core kernel includes, in the same order that the rest are ordered -
        alphabetical, Christmas tree, rev-Xmas-tree or at the end if there
        doesn't seem to be any matching order.
      
      * If the script can't find a place to put a new include (mostly
        because the file doesn't have fitting include block), it prints out
        an error message indicating which .h file needs to be added to the
        file.
      
      The conversion was done in the following steps.
      
      1. The initial automatic conversion of all .c files updated slightly
         over 4000 files, deleting around 700 includes and adding ~480 gfp.h
         and ~3000 slab.h inclusions.  The script emitted errors for ~400
         files.
      
      2. Each error was manually checked.  Some didn't need the inclusion,
         some needed manual addition while adding it to implementation .h or
         embedding .c file was more appropriate for others.  This step added
         inclusions to around 150 files.
      
      3. The script was run again and the output was compared to the edits
         from #2 to make sure no file was left behind.
      
      4. Several build tests were done and a couple of problems were fixed.
         e.g. lib/decompress_*.c used malloc/free() wrappers around slab
         APIs requiring slab.h to be added manually.
      
      5. The script was run on all .h files but without automatically
         editing them as sprinkling gfp.h and slab.h inclusions around .h
         files could easily lead to inclusion dependency hell.  Most gfp.h
         inclusion directives were ignored as stuff from gfp.h was usually
         wildly available and often used in preprocessor macros.  Each
         slab.h inclusion directive was examined and added manually as
         necessary.
      
      6. percpu.h was updated not to include slab.h.
      
      7. Build test were done on the following configurations and failures
         were fixed.  CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL was turned off for all tests (as my
         distributed build env didn't work with gcov compiles) and a few
         more options had to be turned off depending on archs to make things
         build (like ipr on powerpc/64 which failed due to missing writeq).
      
         * x86 and x86_64 UP and SMP allmodconfig and a custom test config.
         * powerpc and powerpc64 SMP allmodconfig
         * sparc and sparc64 SMP allmodconfig
         * ia64 SMP allmodconfig
         * s390 SMP allmodconfig
         * alpha SMP allmodconfig
         * um on x86_64 SMP allmodconfig
      
      8. percpu.h modifications were reverted so that it could be applied as
         a separate patch and serve as bisection point.
      
      Given the fact that I had only a couple of failures from tests on step
      6, I'm fairly confident about the coverage of this conversion patch.
      If there is a breakage, it's likely to be something in one of the arch
      headers which should be easily discoverable easily on most builds of
      the specific arch.

      IB/core: Fix handling of multicast response failures · 57cb61d5
      Ralph Campbell authored
      
      
      I was looking at the code for multicast.c and noticed that
      ib_sa_join_multicast() calls queue_join() which puts the
      request at the front of the group->pending_list.  If this
      is a second request, it seems like it would interfere with
      process_join_error() since group->last_join won't point
      to the member at the head of the pending_list. The sequence
      would thus be:
      
      1. ib_sa_join_multicast()
         puts member1 on head of pending_list and starts work thread
      2. mcast_work_handler()
         calls send_join() which sets group->last_join to member1
      3. ib_sa_join_multicast()
         puts member2 on head of pending_list
      4. join operation for member1 receives failures response from SA.
      5. join_handler() is called with error status
      6. process_join_error() fails to process member1 since
         it doesn't match the first entry in the group->pending_list.
      
      The impact is that the failed join request is tossed.  The second
      request is processed, and after it completes, the original request ends
      up being retried.
      
      This change also results in join requests being processed in FIFO
      order.

      PCI: Cleanup the includes of <linux/pci.h> · 6473d160
      Jean Delvare authored
      I noticed that many source files include <linux/pci.h> while they do
      not appear to need it. Here is an attempt to clean it all up.
      
      In order to find all possibly affected files, I searched for all
      files including <linux/pci.h> but without any other occurence of "pci"
      or "PCI". I removed the include statement from all of these, then I
      compiled an allmodconfig kernel on both i386 and x86_64 and fixed the
      false positives manually.
      
      My tests covered 66% of the affected files, so there could be false
      positives remaining. Untested files are:
      
      arch/alpha/kernel/err_common.c
      arch/alpha/kernel/err_ev6.c
      arch/alpha/kernel/err_ev7.c

      sound/oss/au1550_ac97.c
      
      I would welcome test reports for these files. I am fine with removing
      the untested files from the patch if the general opinion is that these
      changes aren't safe. The tested part would still be nice to have.
      
      Note that this patch depends on another header fixup patch I submitted
      to LKML yesterday:
        [PATCH] scatterlist.h needs types.h

      IB/sa: Track multicast join/leave requests · faec2f7b
      Sean Hefty authored
      
      
      The IB SA tracks multicast join/leave requests on a per port basis and
      does not do any reference counting: if two users of the same port join
      the same group, and one leaves that group, then the SA will remove the
      port from the group even though there is one user who wants to stay a
      member left.  Therefore, in order to support multiple users of the
      same multicast group from the same port, we need to perform reference
      counting locally.
      
      To do this, add an multicast submodule to ib_sa to perform reference
      counting of multicast join/leave operations.  Modify ib_ipoib (the
      only in-kernel user of multicast) to use the new interface.
