2007-05-07blackfin architectureBryan Wu103-0/+23594
This adds support for the Analog Devices Blackfin processor architecture, and currently supports the BF533, BF532, BF531, BF537, BF536, BF534, and BF561 (Dual Core) devices, with a variety of development platforms including those avaliable from Analog Devices (BF533-EZKit, BF533-STAMP, BF537-STAMP, BF561-EZKIT), and Bluetechnix! Tinyboards. The Blackfin architecture was jointly developed by Intel and Analog Devices Inc. (ADI) as the Micro Signal Architecture (MSA) core and introduced it in December of 2000. Since then ADI has put this core into its Blackfin processor family of devices. The Blackfin core has the advantages of a clean, orthogonal,RISC-like microprocessor instruction set. It combines a dual-MAC (Multiply/Accumulate), state-of-the-art signal processing engine and single-instruction, multiple-data (SIMD) multimedia capabilities into a single instruction-set architecture. The Blackfin architecture, including the instruction set, is described by the ADSP-BF53x/BF56x Blackfin Processor Programming Reference http://blackfin.uclinux.org/gf/download/frsrelease/29/2549/Blackfin_PRM.pdf The Blackfin processor is already supported by major releases of gcc, and there are binary and source rpms/tarballs for many architectures at: http://blackfin.uclinux.org/gf/project/toolchain/frs There is complete documentation, including "getting started" guides available at: http://docs.blackfin.uclinux.org/ which provides links to the sources and patches you will need in order to set up a cross-compiling environment for bfin-linux-uclibc This patch, as well as the other patches (toolchain, distribution, uClibc) are actively supported by Analog Devices Inc, at: http://blackfin.uclinux.org/ We have tested this on LTP, and our test plan (including pass/fails) can be found at: http://docs.blackfin.uclinux.org/doku.php?id=testing_the_linux_kernel [m.kozlowski@tuxland.pl: balance parenthesis in blackfin header files] Signed-off-by: Bryan Wu <bryan.wu@analog.com> Signed-off-by: Mariusz Kozlowski <m.kozlowski@tuxland.pl> Signed-off-by: Aubrey Li <aubrey.li@analog.com> Signed-off-by: Jie Zhang <jie.zhang@analog.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
2007-05-07slab allocators: Remove SLAB_DEBUG_INITIAL flagChristoph Lameter1-2/+1
I have never seen a use of SLAB_DEBUG_INITIAL. It is only supported by SLAB. I think its purpose was to have a callback after an object has been freed to verify that the state is the constructor state again? The callback is performed before each freeing of an object. I would think that it is much easier to check the object state manually before the free. That also places the check near the code object manipulation of the object. Also the SLAB_DEBUG_INITIAL callback is only performed if the kernel was compiled with SLAB debugging on. If there would be code in a constructor handling SLAB_DEBUG_INITIAL then it would have to be conditional on SLAB_DEBUG otherwise it would just be dead code. But there is no such code in the kernel. I think SLUB_DEBUG_INITIAL is too problematic to make real use of, difficult to understand and there are easier ways to accomplish the same effect (i.e. add debug code before kfree). There is a related flag SLAB_CTOR_VERIFY that is frequently checked to be clear in fs inode caches. Remove the pointless checks (they would even be pointless without removeal of SLAB_DEBUG_INITIAL) from the fs constructors. This is the last slab flag that SLUB did not support. Remove the check for unimplemented flags from SLUB.

2007-05-07get_unmapped_area handles MAP_FIXED on powerpcBenjamin Herrenschmidt1-0/+21
The current get_unmapped_area code calls the f_ops->get_unmapped_area or the arch one (via the mm) only when MAP_FIXED is not passed. That makes it impossible for archs to impose proper constraints on regions of the virtual address space. To work around that, get_unmapped_area() then calls some hugetlbfs specific hacks. This cause several problems, among others: - It makes it impossible for a driver or filesystem to do the same thing that hugetlbfs does (for example, to allow a driver to use larger page sizes to map external hardware) if that requires applying a constraint on the addresses (constraining that mapping in certain regions and other mappings out of those regions). - Some archs like arm, mips, sparc, sparc64, sh and sh64 already want MAP_FIXED to be passed down in order to deal with aliasing issues. The code is there to handle it... but is never called. This series of patches moves the logic to handle MAP_FIXED down to the various arch/driver get_unmapped_area() implementations, and then changes the generic code to always call them. The hugetlbfs hacks then disappear from the generic code. Since I need to do some special 64K pages mappings for SPEs on cell, I need to work around the first problem at least. I have further patches thus implementing a "slices" layer that handles multiple page sizes through slices of the address space for use by hugetlbfs, the SPE code, and possibly others, but it requires that serie of patches first/ There is still a potential (but not practical) issue due to the fact that filesystems/drivers implemeting g_u_a will effectively bypass all arch checks. This is not an issue in practice as the only filesystems/drivers using that hook are doing so for arch specific purposes in the first place. There is also a problem with mremap that will completely bypass all arch checks. I'll try to address that separately, I'm not 100% certain yet how, possibly by making it not work when the vma has a file whose f_ops has a get_unmapped_area callback, and by making it use is_hugepage_only_range() before expanding into a new area. Also, I want to turn is_hugepage_only_range() into a more generic is_normal_page_range() as that's really what it will end up meaning when used in stack grow, brk grow and mremap. None of the above "issues" however are introduced by this patch, they are already there, so I think the patch can go ini for 2.6.22. This patch: Handle MAP_FIXED in powerpc's arch_get_unmapped_area() in all 3 implementations of it.

This patch was recently posted to lkml and acked by Pekka. The flag SLAB_MUST_HWCACHE_ALIGN is 1. Never checked by SLAB at all. 2. A duplicate of SLAB_HWCACHE_ALIGN for SLUB 3. Fulfills the role of SLAB_HWCACHE_ALIGN for SLOB. The only remaining use is in sparc64 and ppc64 and their use there reflects some earlier role that the slab flag once may have had. If its specified then SLAB_HWCACHE_ALIGN is also specified. The flag is confusing, inconsistent and has no purpose. Remove it.

2007-05-07Make page->private usable in compound pagesChristoph Lameter1-1/+1
If we add a new flag so that we can distinguish between the first page and the tail pages then we can avoid to use page->private in the first page. page->private == page for the first page, so there is no real information in there. Freeing up page->private makes the use of compound pages more transparent. They become more usable like real pages. Right now we have to be careful f.e. if we are going beyond PAGE_SIZE allocations in the slab on i386 because we can then no longer use the private field. This is one of the issues that cause us not to support debugging for page size slabs in SLAB. Having page->private available for SLUB would allow more meta information in the page struct. I can probably avoid the 16 bit ints that I have in there right now. Also if page->private is available then a compound page may be equipped with buffer heads. This may free up the way for filesystems to support larger blocks than page size. We add PageTail as an alias of PageReclaim. Compound pages cannot currently be reclaimed. Because of the alias one needs to check PageCompound first.

2007-05-07PowerPC: Disable SLUB for configurations in which slab page structs are modifiedChristoph Lameter1-0/+13

2007-05-07SLUB coreChristoph Lameter2-0/+8
This is a new slab allocator which was motivated by the complexity of the existing code in mm/slab.c. It attempts to address a variety of concerns with the existing implementation. A. Management of object queues A particular concern was the complex management of the numerous object queues in SLAB. SLUB has no such queues. Instead we dedicate a slab for each allocating CPU and use objects from a slab directly instead of queueing them up. B. Storage overhead of object queues SLAB Object queues exist per node, per CPU. The alien cache queue even has a queue array that contain a queue for each processor on each node. For very large systems the number of queues and the number of objects that may be caught in those queues grows exponentially. On our systems with 1k nodes / processors we have several gigabytes just tied up for storing references to objects for those queues This does not include the objects that could be on those queues. One fears that the whole memory of the machine could one day be consumed by those queues. C. SLAB meta data overhead SLAB has overhead at the beginning of each slab. This means that data cannot be naturally aligned at the beginning of a slab block. SLUB keeps all meta data in the corresponding page_struct. Objects can be naturally aligned in the slab. F.e. a 128 byte object will be aligned at 128 byte boundaries and can fit tightly into a 4k page with no bytes left over. SLAB cannot do this. D. SLAB has a complex cache reaper SLUB does not need a cache reaper for UP systems. On SMP systems the per CPU slab may be pushed back into partial list but that operation is simple and does not require an iteration over a list of objects. SLAB expires per CPU, shared and alien object queues during cache reaping which may cause strange hold offs. E. SLAB has complex NUMA policy layer support SLUB pushes NUMA policy handling into the page allocator. This means that allocation is coarser (SLUB does interleave on a page level) but that situation was also present before 2.6.13. SLABs application of policies to individual slab objects allocated in SLAB is certainly a performance concern due to the frequent references to memory policies which may lead a sequence of objects to come from one node after another. SLUB will get a slab full of objects from one node and then will switch to the next. F. Reduction of the size of partial slab lists SLAB has per node partial lists. This means that over time a large number of partial slabs may accumulate on those lists. These can only be reused if allocator occur on specific nodes. SLUB has a global pool of partial slabs and will consume slabs from that pool to decrease fragmentation. G. Tunables SLAB has sophisticated tuning abilities for each slab cache. One can manipulate the queue sizes in detail. However, filling the queues still requires the uses of the spin lock to check out slabs. SLUB has a global parameter (min_slab_order) for tuning. Increasing the minimum slab order can decrease the locking overhead. The bigger the slab order the less motions of pages between per CPU and partial lists occur and the better SLUB will be scaling. G. Slab merging We often have slab caches with similar parameters. SLUB detects those on boot up and merges them into the corresponding general caches. This leads to more effective memory use. About 50% of all caches can be eliminated through slab merging. This will also decrease slab fragmentation because partial allocated slabs can be filled up again. Slab merging can be switched off by specifying slub_nomerge on boot up. Note that merging can expose heretofore unknown bugs in the kernel because corrupted objects may now be placed differently and corrupt differing neighboring objects. Enable sanity checks to find those. H. Diagnostics The current slab diagnostics are difficult to use and require a recompilation of the kernel. SLUB contains debugging code that is always available (but is kept out of the hot code paths). SLUB diagnostics can be enabled via the "slab_debug" option. Parameters can be specified to select a single or a group of slab caches for diagnostics. This means that the system is running with the usual performance and it is much more likely that race conditions can be reproduced. I. Resiliency If basic sanity checks are on then SLUB is capable of detecting common error conditions and recover as best as possible to allow the system to continue. J. Tracing Tracing can be enabled via the slab_debug=T,<slabcache> option during boot. SLUB will then protocol all actions on that slabcache and dump the object contents on free. K. On demand DMA cache creation. Generally DMA caches are not needed. If a kmalloc is used with __GFP_DMA then just create this single slabcache that is needed. For systems that have no ZONE_DMA requirement the support is completely eliminated. L. Performance increase Some benchmarks have shown speed improvements on kernbench in the range of 5-10%. The locking overhead of slub is based on the underlying base allocation size. If we can reliably allocate larger order pages then it is possible to increase slub performance much further. The anti-fragmentation patches may enable further performance increases. Tested on: i386 UP + SMP, x86_64 UP + SMP + NUMA emulation, IA64 NUMA + Simulator SLUB Boot options slub_nomerge Disable merging of slabs slub_min_order=x Require a minimum order for slab caches. This increases the managed chunk size and therefore reduces meta data and locking overhead. slub_min_objects=x Mininum objects per slab. Default is 8. slub_max_order=x Avoid generating slabs larger than order specified. slub_debug Enable all diagnostics for all caches slub_debug=<options> Enable selective options for all caches slub_debug=<o>,<cache> Enable selective options for a certain set of caches Available Debug options F Double Free checking, sanity and resiliency R Red zoning P Object / padding poisoning U Track last free / alloc T Trace all allocs / frees (only use for individual slabs). To use SLUB: Apply this patch and then select SLUB as the default slab allocator.

Architectures that don't support DMA can say so by adding a config NO_DMA to their Kconfig file. This will prevent compilation of some dma specific driver code. Also dma-mapping-broken.h isn't needed anymore on at least s390. This avoids compilation and linking of otherwise dead/broken code. Other architectures that include dma-mapping-broken.h are arm26, h8300, m68k, m68knommu and v850. If these could be converted as well we could get rid of the header file.

2007-05-07serial: define FIXED_PORT flag for serial_coreDavid Gibson1-1/+2
At present, the serial core always allows setserial in userspace to change the port address, irq and base clock of any serial port. That makes sense for legacy ISA ports, but not for (say) embedded ns16550 compatible serial ports at peculiar addresses. In these cases, the kernel code configuring the ports must know exactly where they are, and their clocking arrangements (which can be unusual on embedded boards). It doesn't make sense for userspace to change these settings. Therefore, this patch defines a UPF_FIXED_PORT flag for the uart_port structure. If this flag is set when the serial port is configured, any attempts to alter the port's type, io address, irq or base clock with setserial are ignored. In addition this patch uses the new flag for on-chip serial ports probed in arch/powerpc/kernel/legacy_serial.c, and for other hard-wired serial ports probed by drivers/serial/of_serial.c.

2007-05-07serial driver PMC MSP71xxMarc St-Jean1-0/+165
Serial driver patch for the PMC-Sierra MSP71xx devices. There are three different fixes: 1 Fix for DesignWare APB THRE errata: In brief, this is a non-standard 16550 in that the THRE interrupt will not re-assert itself simply by disabling and re-enabling the THRI bit in the IER, it is only re-enabled if a character is actually sent out. It appears that the "8250-uart-backup-timer.patch" in the "mm" tree also fixes it so we have dropped our initial workaround. This patch now needs to be applied on top of that "mm" patch. 2 Fix for Busy Detect on LCR write: The DesignWare APB UART has a feature which causes a new Busy Detect interrupt to be generated if it's busy when the LCR is written. This fix saves the value of the LCR and rewrites it after clearing the interrupt. 3 Workaround for interrupt/data concurrency issue: The SoC needs to ensure that writes that can cause interrupts to be cleared reach the UART before returning from the ISR. This fix reads a non-destructive register on the UART so the read transaction completion ensures the previously queued write transaction has also completed.

2007-05-07Revert "[PATCH] x86: __pa and __pa_symbol address space separation"Linus Torvalds8-45/+57
This was broken. It adds complexity, for no good reason. Rather than separate __pa() and __pa_symbol(), we should deprecate __pa_symbol(), and preferably __pa() too - and just use "virt_to_phys()" instead, which is more readable and has nicer semantics. However, right now, just undo the separation, and make __pa_symbol() be the exact same as __pa(). That fixes the bugs this patch introduced, and we can do the fairly obvious cleanups later. Do the new __phys_addr() function (which is now the actual workhorse for the unified __pa()/__pa_symbol()) as a real external function, that way all the potential issues with compile/link-time optimizations of constant symbol addresses go away, and we can also, if we choose to, add more sanity-checking of the argument.

2007-05-05[ARM] mm 10: allow memory type to be specified with ioremapRussell King5-28/+26
__ioremap() took a set of page table flags (specifically the cacheable and bufferable bits) to control the mapping type. However, with the advent of ARMv6, this is far too limited. Replace the page table flags with a memory type index, so that the desired attributes can be selected from the mem_type table. Finally, to prevent silent miscompilation due to the differing arguments, rename the __ioremap() and __ioremap_pfn() functions. Signed-off-by: Russell King <rmk+kernel@arm.linux.org.uk>

2007-05-05ARM: OMAP: MPUIO wake updatesDavid Brownell1-10/+83
GPIO and MPUIO wake updates: - Hook MPUIOs into the irq wakeup framework too. This uses a platform device to update irq enables during system sleep states, instead of a sys_device, since the latter is no longer needed for such things. - Also forward enable/disable irq wake requests to the relevant GPIO controller, so the top level IRQ dispatcher can (eventually) handle these wakeup events automatically if more than one GPIO pin needs to be a wakeup event source. - Minor tweak to the 24xx non-wakeup gpio stuff: no need to check such read-only data under the spinlock. This assumes (maybe wrongly?) that only 16xx can do GPIO wakeup; without a 15xx I can't test such stuff. Also this expects the top level IRQ dispatcher to properly handle requests to enable/disable irq wake, which is currently known to be wrong: omap1 saves the flags but ignores them, omap2 doesn't even save it. (Wakeup events are, wrongly, hardwired in the relevant mach-omapX/pm.c file ...) So MPUIO irqs won't yet trigger system wakeup.

2007-05-05ARM: OMAP: speed up gpio irq handlingDavid Brownell1-8/+9
Speedup and shrink GPIO irq handling code, by using a pointer that's available in the irq_chip structure instead of calling the get_gpio_bank() function. On OMAP1 this saves 44 words, most of which were in IRQ critical path methods. Hey, every few instructions help.

2007-05-04m68k: Mac II ADB fixesFinn Thain1-0/+10
Fix a crash caused by requests placed in the queue with the completed flag already set. This lead to some ADB_SYNC requests returning early and their request structs being popped off the stack while still queued. Stack corruption ensued or an invalid request callback pointer was invoked or both. Eliminate macii_retransmit() and its buggy implementation of macii_write(). Have macii_queue_poll() fully initialise the request queues. Fix a bug in macii_queue_poll() where the last_req pointer was not being set. This caused some requests to leave the queue before being completed (and would also corrupt the stack under certain conditions). Fix a race in macii_start that could set the state machine to "reading" while current_req was null. No longer send poll commands with the ADBREQ_REPLY flag -- doing that caused the replies to be stored in the request buffer where they were forgotten about. Don't autopoll by continuously sending new Talk commands. Get the controller to do that for us. This reduces the ADB interrupt rate on an idle bus to about 5 per second. Only autopoll the devices that were probed. Explicitly clear the interrupt flag when polling. Use disable_irq rather than local_irq_save when polling. Remove excess local_irq_save/restore pairs. Improve bus timeout and service request detection. Remove unused code (last_reply, adb_dir etc) and unneeded code (prefix_len, first_byte etc). Change TIP and TACK to their correct names on this ADB controller (ST_EVEN and ST_ODD). Add some commentry. Add a generous quantity of sanity checks (BUG_ONs). Let m68k macs use the adb_sync boot param too.
