      x86: fix 1:1 mapping init on 64-bit (memory hotplug case) · 8ae3a5a8
      Jan Beulich authored
      While I don't have a hotplug capable system at hand, I think two issues need
      - pud_phys (in kernel_physical_ampping_init()) would remain uninitialized in
        the after_bootmem case
      - the locking done just around phys_pmd_{init,update}() would leave out pgd
        updates, and it was needlessly covering code portions that do allocations
        (perhaps using a more friendly gfp value in alloc_low_page() would then be

      x86: work around MTRR mask setting · 38cc1c3d
      Yinghai Lu authored
      Joshua Hoblitt reported that only 3 GB of his 16 GB of RAM is
      usable. Booting with mtrr_show showed us the BIOS-initialized
      MTRR settings - which are all wrong.
      So the root cause is that the BIOS has not set the mask correctly:

      So detect this borkage and add the prefix 111.

      x86: fix oprofile + hibernation badness · 80a8c9ff
      Andi Kleen authored
      Vegard Nossum reported oprofile + hibernation problems:
      > Now some warnings:
      > ------------[ cut here ]------------
      > WARNING: at /uio/arkimedes/s29/vegardno/git-working/linux-2.6/kernel/smp.c:328 s
      > mp_call_function_mask+0x194/0x1a0()
      The usual problem: the suspend function when interrupts are
      already disabled calls smp_call_function which is not allowed with
      interrupt off. But at this point all the other CPUs should be already
      down anyways, so it should be enough to just drop that.
      This patch should fix that problem at least by fixing cpu hotplug&
      suspend support.

      x86, SGI UV: hardcode the TLB flush interrupt system vector · 99dd8713
      Cliff Wickman authored
      The UV TLB shootdown mechanism needs a system interrupt vector.
      Its vector had been hardcoded as 200, but needs to moved to the reserved
      system vector range so that it does not collide with some device vector.
      This is still temporary until dynamic system IRQ allocation is provided.
      But it will be needed when real UV hardware becomes available and runs 2.6.27.

      x86: fix Xorg startup/shutdown slowdown with PAT · 80c5e73d
      Venki Pallipadi authored
      Rene Herman reported significant Xorg startup/shutdown slowdown due
      to PAT. It turns out that the memtype list has thousands of entries.
      Add cached_entry to list add routine, in order to speed up the
      lookup for sequential reserve_memtype calls.

      x86: fix "kernel won't boot on a Cyrix MediaGXm (Geode)" · c6744955
      Samuel Sieb authored
      Cyrix MediaGXm/Cx5530 Unicorn Revision 1.19.3B has stopped
      booting starting at v2.6.22.
      The reason is this commit:
      > commit f25f64ed

      > Date:   Sun Jul 22 11:12:38 2007 +0200
      >     x86: Replace NSC/Cyrix specific chipset access macros by inlined functions.
      this commit activated a macro which was dormant before due to (buggy)
      macro side-effects.
      I've looked through various datasheets and found that the GXm and GXLV
      Geode processors don't have an incrementor.
      Remove the incrementor setup entirely.  As the incrementor value
      differs according to clock speed and we would hope that the BIOS
      configures it correctly, it is probably the right solution.
