      Fix barrier fail detection in XFS · 73f6aa4d
      Christoph Hellwig authored
      Currently we disable barriers as soon as we get a buffer in xlog_iodone
      that has the XBF_ORDERED flag cleared.  But this can be the case not only
      for buffers where the barrier failed, but also the first buffer of a
      split log write in case of a log wraparound.  Due to the disabled
      barriers we can easily get directory corruption on unclean shutdowns.
      So instead of using this check add a new buffer flag for failed barrier
      This is a regression vs 2.6.26 caused by patch to use the right macro
      to check for the ORDERED flag, as we previously got true returned for
      every buffer.
      Thanks to Toei Rei for reporting the bug.

      PnP: move pnpacpi/pnpbios_init to after PCI init · ed458df4
      Linus Torvalds authored
      We already did that a long time ago for pnp_system_init, but
      pnpacpi_init and pnpbios_init remained as subsys_initcalls, and get
      linked into the kernel before the arch-specific routines that finalize
      the PCI resources (pci_subsys_init).
      This means that the PnP routines would either register their resources
      before the PCI layer could, or would be unable to check whether a PCI
      resource had already been registered.  Both are problematic.
      I wanted to do this before 2.6.27, but every time we change something
      like this, something breaks.  That said, _every_ single time we trust
      some firmware (like PnP tables) more than we trust the hardware itself
      (like PCI probing), the problems have been worse.
