2008-07-24remove the v850 portAdrian Bunk204-18406/+5
Trying to compile the v850 port brings many compile errors, one of them exists since at least kernel 2.6.19. There also seems to be noone willing to bring this port back into a usable state. This patch therefore removes the v850 port. If anyone ever decides to revive the v850 port the code will still be available from older kernels, and it wouldn't be impossible for the port to reenter the kernel if it would become actively maintained again.

2008-07-24pm: acpi pm: add DMI quirk list for ACPI 1.0 suspend orderingCarlos Corbacho1-0/+20
There are a few BIOSes that we know of already that need to use the ACPI 1.0 suspend order. This appears to be only be a small minority of mostly nVidia based systems.

2008-07-24pm: acpi hibernation: utilize hardware signatureShaohua Li4-1/+30
ACPI defines a hardware signature. BIOS calculates the signature according to hardware configure and if hardware changes while hibernated, the signature will change. In that case, S4 resume should fail. Still, there may be systems on which this mechanism does not work correctly, so it is better to provide a workaround for them. For this reason, add a new switch to the acpi_sleep= command line argument allowing one to disable hardware signature checking.

2008-07-24pm: boot time suspend selftestDavid Brownell3-2/+212
Boot-time test for system suspend states (STR or standby). The generic RTC framework triggers wakeup alarms, which are used to exit those states. - Measures some aspects of suspend time ... this uses "jiffies" until someone converts it to use a timebase that works properly even while timer IRQs are disabled. - Triggered by a command line parameter. By default nothing even vaguely troublesome will happen, but "test_suspend=mem" will give you a brief STR test during system boot. (Or you may need to use "test_suspend=standby" instead, if your hardware needs that.) This isn't without problems. It fires early enough during boot that for example both PCMCIA and MMC stacks have misbehaved. The workaround in those cases was to boot without such media cards inserted.

2008-07-24security: filesystem capabilities refactor kernel codeAndrew G. Morgan1-117/+221
To date, we've tried hard to confine filesystem support for capabilities to the security modules. This has left a lot of the code in kernel/capability.c in a state where it looks like it supports something that filesystem support for capabilities actually suppresses when the LSM security/commmoncap.c code runs. What is left is a lot of code that uses sub-optimal locking in the main kernel With this change we refactor the main kernel code and make it explicit which locks are needed and that the only remaining kernel races in this area are associated with non-filesystem capability code.

2008-07-24security: protect legacy applications from executing with insufficient privilegeAndrew G. Morgan2-50/+60
When cap_bset suppresses some of the forced (fP) capabilities of a file, it is generally only safe to execute the program if it understands how to recognize it doesn't have enough privilege to work correctly. For legacy applications (fE!=0), which have no non-destructive way to determine that they are missing privilege, we fail to execute (EPERM) any executable that requires fP capabilities, but would otherwise get pP' < fP. This is a fail-safe permission check. For some discussion of why it is problematic for (legacy) privileged applications to run with less than the set of capabilities requested for them, see: http://userweb.kernel.org/~morgan/sendmail-capabilities-war-story.html With this iteration of this support, we do not include setuid-0 based privilege protection from the bounding set. That is, the admin can still (ab)use the bounding set to suppress the privileges of a setuid-0 program.

2008-07-24mm: fix ever-decreasing swap priorityHugh Dickins1-24/+25
Vegard Nossum has noticed the ever-decreasing negative priority in a swapon /swapoff loop, which eventually would misprioritize when int wraps positive. Not worth spending much code on, but probably better fixed. It's easy to handle the swapping on and off of just one area, but there's not much point if a pair or more still misbehave. To handle the general case, swapoff should compact negative priorities, keeping them always from -1 to -MAX_SWAPFILES. That's a change, but should cause no regression, since these negative (unspecified) priorities are disjoint from the the positive specified priorities 0 to 32767. One small functional difference, which seems appropriate: when swapoff fails to free all swap from a negative priority area, that area is now reinserted at lowest priority, rather than at its original priority. In moving down swapon's setting of priority, I notice that an area is visible to /proc/swaps when it has swap_map set, yet that was being set before all the visible fields were properly filled in: corrected.

2008-07-24mm: make CONFIG_MIGRATION available w/o CONFIG_NUMAGerald Schaefer4-23/+21
We'd like to support CONFIG_MEMORY_HOTREMOVE on s390, which depends on CONFIG_MIGRATION. So far, CONFIG_MIGRATION is only available with NUMA support. This patch makes CONFIG_MIGRATION selectable for architectures that define ARCH_ENABLE_MEMORY_HOTREMOVE. When MIGRATION is enabled w/o NUMA, the kernel won't compile because migrate_vmas() does not know about vm_ops->migrate() and vma_migratable() does not know about policy_zone. To fix this, those two functions can be restricted to '#ifdef CONFIG_NUMA' because they are not being used w/o NUMA. vma_migratable() is moved over from migrate.h to mempolicy.h.

2008-07-24memory-hotplug: add sysfs removable attribute for hotplug memory removeBadari Pulavarty4-0/+115
Memory may be hot-removed on a per-memory-block basis, particularly on POWER where the SPARSEMEM section size often matches the memory-block size. A user-level agent must be able to identify which sections of memory are likely to be removable before attempting the potentially expensive operation. This patch adds a file called "removable" to the memory directory in sysfs to help such an agent. In this patch, a memory block is considered removable if; o It contains only MOVABLE pageblocks o It contains only pageblocks with free pages regardless of pageblock type On the other hand, a memory block starting with a PageReserved() page will never be considered removable. Without this patch, the user-agent is forced to choose a memory block to remove randomly. Sample output of the sysfs files: ./memory/memory0/removable: 0 ./memory/memory1/removable: 0 ./memory/memory2/removable: 0 ./memory/memory3/removable: 0 ./memory/memory4/removable: 0 ./memory/memory5/removable: 0 ./memory/memory6/removable: 0 ./memory/memory7/removable: 1 ./memory/memory8/removable: 0 ./memory/memory9/removable: 0 ./memory/memory10/removable: 0 ./memory/memory11/removable: 0 ./memory/memory12/removable: 0 ./memory/memory13/removable: 0 ./memory/memory14/removable: 0 ./memory/memory15/removable: 0 ./memory/memory16/removable: 0 ./memory/memory17/removable: 1 ./memory/memory18/removable: 1 ./memory/memory19/removable: 1 ./memory/memory20/removable: 1 ./memory/memory21/removable: 1 ./memory/memory22/removable: 1 Signed-off-by: Badari Pulavarty <pbadari@us.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Mel Gorman <mel@csn.ul.ie> Acked-by: KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki <kamezawa.hiroyu@jp.fujitsu.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

2008-07-24memory hotplug: allocate usemap on the section with pgdatYasunori Goto1-1/+77
Usemaps are allocated on the section which has pgdat by this. Because usemap size is very small, many other sections usemaps are allocated on only one page. If a section has usemap, it can't be removed until removing other sections. This dependency is not desirable for memory removing. Pgdat has similar feature. When a section has pgdat area, it must be the last section for removing on the node. So, if section A has pgdat and section B has usemap for section A, Both sections can't be removed due to dependency each other. To solve this issue, this patch collects usemap on same section with pgdat as much as possible. If other sections doesn't have any dependency, this section will be able to be removed finally.

The problem resides in PAGE_MASK definition (from include/asm-x86/page.h for example): #define PAGE_SHIFT 12 #define PAGE_SIZE (_AC(1,UL) << PAGE_SHIFT) #define PAGE_MASK (~(PAGE_SIZE-1)) ... #define PAGE_ALIGN(addr) (((addr)+PAGE_SIZE-1)&PAGE_MASK) The "~" is performed on a 32-bit value, so everything in "and" with PAGE_MASK greater than 4GB will be truncated to the 32-bit boundary. Using the ALIGN() macro seems to be the right way, because it uses typeof(addr) for the mask. Also move the PAGE_ALIGN() definitions out of include/asm-*/page.h in include/linux/mm.h.

2008-07-24mm: add alloc_pages_exact() and free_pages_exact()Timur Tabi2-0/+56
alloc_pages_exact() is similar to alloc_pages(), except that it allocates the minimum number of pages to fulfill the request. This is useful if you want to allocate a very large buffer that is slightly larger than an even power-of-two number of pages. In that case, alloc_pages() will waste a lot of memory. I have a video driver that wants to allocate a 5MB buffer. alloc_pages() wiill waste 3MB of physically-contiguous memory.

2008-07-24bootmem: replace node_boot_start in struct bootmem_dataJohannes Weiner10-44/+41
Almost all users of this field need a PFN instead of a physical address, so replace node_boot_start with node_min_pfn.

2008-07-24bootmem: revisit alloc_bootmem_sectionJohannes Weiner1-21/+6
Since alloc_bootmem_core does no goal-fallback anymore and just returns NULL if the allocation fails, we might now use it in alloc_bootmem_section without all the fixup code for a misplaced allocation. Also, the limit can be the first PFN of the next section as the semantics is that the limit is _above_ the allocated region, not within.

2008-07-24bootmem: respect goal more likelyJohannes Weiner1-38/+54
The old node-agnostic code tried allocating on all nodes starting from the one with the lowest range. alloc_bootmem_core retried without the goal if it could not satisfy it and so the goal was only respected at all when it happened to be on the first (lowest page numbers) node (or theoretically if allocations failed on all nodes before to the one holding the goal). Introduce a non-panicking helper that starts allocating from the node holding the goal and falls back only after all thes tries failed, thus moving the goal fallback code out of alloc_bootmem_core. Make all other allocation functions benefit from this new helper.

2008-07-24bootmem: factor out the marking of a PFN rangeJohannes Weiner1-119/+69
Introduce new helpers that mark a range that resides completely on a node or node-agnostic ranges that might also span node boundaries. The free/reserve API functions will then directly use these helpers. Note that the free/reserve semantics become more strict: while the prior code took basically arbitrary range arguments and marked the PFNs that happen to fall into that range, the new code requires node-specific ranges to be completely on the node. The node-agnostic requests might span node boundaries as long as the nodes are contiguous. Passing ranges that do not satisfy these criteria is a bug.

2008-07-24bootmem: clean up alloc_bootmem_coreJohannes Weiner2-140/+78
alloc_bootmem_core has become quite nasty to read over time. This is a clean rewrite that keeps the semantics. bdata->last_pos has been dropped. bdata->last_success has been renamed to hint_idx and it is now an index relative to the node's range. Since further block searching might start at this index, it is now set to the end of a succeeded allocation rather than its beginning. bdata->last_offset has been renamed to last_end_off to be more clear that it represents the ending address of the last allocation relative to the node.

link_bootmem handles an insertion of a new descriptor into the sorted list in more or less three explicit branches; empty list, insert in between and append. These cases can be expressed implicite. Also mark the sorted list as initdata as it can be thrown away after boot as well.
