2011-06-03lib: cordic: add library module providing cordic angle calculationArend van Spriel1-0/+2
The brcm80211 driver in the staging tree has a cordic function to determine cosine and sine for a given angle. Feedback received from John Linville suggested that these kind of functions should be made available to others as a library function in the kernel tree. The b43 driver also has a cordic angle calculation implemented. Cc: linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org Cc: linux-wireless@vger.kernel.org Cc: "John W.

The brcm80211 driver in staging tree uses a crc8 function. Based on feedback from John Linville to move this to lib directory, the linux source has been searched. Although there is currently only one other kernel driver using this algorithm (ie. drivers/ssb) we are providing this as a library function for others to use.

2011-05-19lib: Add generic binary search function to the kernel.Tim Abbott1-1/+2
There a large number hand-coded binary searches in the kernel (run "git grep search | grep binary" to find many of them). Since in my experience, hand-coding binary searches can be error-prone, it seems worth cleaning this up by providing a generic binary search function. This generic binary search implementation comes from Ksplice. It has the same basic API as the C library bsearch() function. Ksplice uses it in half a dozen places with 4 different comparison functions, and I think our code is substantially cleaner because of this.

NOTE! This merge commit was created to fix compilation error. The block tree was merged upstream and removed the 'elv_queue_empty()' function which the new 'mtdswap' driver is using. So a simple merge of the mtd tree with upstream does not compile. And the mtd tree has already be published, so re-basing it is not an option. To fix this unfortunate situation, I had to merge upstream into the mtd-2.6.git tree without committing, put the fixup patch on top of this, and then commit this. The result is that we do not have commits which do not compile. In other words, this merge commit "merges" 3 things: the MTD tree, the upstream tree, and the fixup patch.
2011-03-23bitops: introduce CONFIG_GENERIC_FIND_BIT_LEAkinobu Mita1-0/+1

2011-03-22kstrto*: converting strings to integers done (hopefully) rightAlexey Dobriyan1-0/+2
1. simple_strto*() do not contain overflow checks and crufty, libc way to indicate failure. 2. strict_strto*() also do not have overflow checks but the name and comments pretend they do. 3. Both families have only "long long" and "long" variants, but users want strtou8() 4. Both "simple" and "strict" prefixes are wrong: Simple doesn't exactly say what's so simple, strict should not exist because conversion should be strict by default. The solution is to use "k" prefix and add convertors for more types. Enter kstrtoull() kstrtoll() kstrtoul() kstrtol() kstrtouint() kstrtoint() kstrtou64() kstrtos64() kstrtou32() kstrtos32() kstrtou16() kstrtos16() kstrtou8() kstrtos8() Include runtime testsuite (somewhat incomplete) as well. strict_strto*() become deprecated, stubbed to kstrto*() and eventually will be removed altogether. Use kstrto*() in code today! Note: on some archs _kstrtoul() and _kstrtol() are left in tree, even if they'll be unused at runtime. This is temporarily solution, because I don't want to hardcode list of archs where these functions aren't needed. Current solution with sizeof() and __alignof__ at least always works.

2011-03-11lib: add shared BCH ECC libraryIvan Djelic1-0/+1
This is a new software BCH encoding/decoding library, similar to the shared Reed-Solomon library. Binary BCH (Bose-Chaudhuri-Hocquenghem) codes are widely used to correct errors in NAND flash devices requiring more than 1-bit ecc correction; they are generally better suited for NAND flash than RS codes because NAND bit errors do not occur in bursts. Latest SLC NAND devices typically require at least 4-bit ecc protection per 512 bytes block. This library provides software encoding/decoding, but may also be used with ASIC/SoC hardware BCH engines to perform error correction. It is being currently used for this purpose on an OMAP3630 board (4bit/8bit HW BCH). It has also been used to decode raw dumps of NAND devices with on-die BCH ecc engines (e.g. Micron 4bit ecc SLC devices). Latest NAND devices (including SLC) can exhibit high error rates (typically a dozen or more bitflips per hour during stress tests); in order to minimize the performance impact of error correction, this library implements recently developed algorithms for fast polynomial root finding (see bch.c header for details) instead of the traditional exhaustive Chien root search; a few performance figures are provided below: Platform: arm926ejs @ 468 MHz, 32 KiB icache, 16 KiB dcache BCH ecc : 4-bit per 512 bytes Encoding average throughput: 250 Mbits/s Error correction time (compared with Chien search): average worst average (Chien) worst (Chien) ---------------------------------------------------------- 1 bit 8.5 µs 11 µs 200 µs 383 µs 2 bit 9.7 µs 12.5 µs 477 µs 728 µs 3 bit 18.1 µs 20.6 µs 758 µs 1010 µs 4 bit 19.5 µs 23 µs 1028 µs 1280 µs In the above figures, "worst" is meant in terms of error pattern, not in terms of cache miss / page faults effects (not taken into account here). The library has been extensively tested on the following platforms: x86, x86_64, arm926ejs, omap3630, qemu-ppc64, qemu-mips.

2011-01-13decompressors: add boot-time XZ supportLasse Collin1-0/+1
This implements the API defined in <linux/decompress/generic.h> which is used for kernel, initramfs, and initrd decompression. This patch together with the first patch is enough for XZ-compressed initramfs and initrd; XZ-compressed kernel will need arch-specific changes. The buffering requirements described in decompress_unxz.c are stricter than with gzip, so the relevant changes should be done to the arch-specific code when adding support for XZ-compressed kernel. Similarly, the heap size in arch-specific pre-boot code may need to be increased (30 KiB is enough). The XZ decompressor needs memmove(), memeq() (memcmp() == 0), and memzero() (memset(ptr, 0, size)), which aren't available in all arch-specific pre-boot environments. I'm including simple versions in decompress_unxz.c, but a cleaner solution would naturally be nicer. Signed-off-by: Lasse Collin <lasse.collin@tukaani.org> Cc: "H.

2011-01-13decompressors: add XZ decompressor moduleLasse Collin1-0/+1
In userspace, the .lzma format has become mostly a legacy file format that got superseded by the .xz format. Similarly, LZMA Utils was superseded by XZ Utils. These patches add support for XZ decompression into the kernel. Most of the code is as is from XZ Embedded <http://tukaani.org/xz/embedded.html>. It was written for the Linux kernel but is usable in other projects too. Advantages of XZ over the current LZMA code in the kernel: - Nice API that can be used by other kernel modules; it's not limited to kernel, initramfs, and initrd decompression. - Integrity check support (CRC32) - BCJ filters improve compression of executable code on certain architectures. These together with LZMA2 can produce a few percent smaller kernel or Squashfs images than plain LZMA without making the decompression slower. This patch: Add the main decompression code (xz_dec), testing module (xz_dec_test), wrapper script (xz_wrap.sh) for the xz command line tool, and documentation. The xz_dec module is enough to have a usable XZ decompressor e.g. for Squashfs. Signed-off-by: Lasse Collin <lasse.collin@tukaani.org> Cc: "H.

There are many different UUID/GUID definitions in kernel, such as that in EFI, many file systems, some drivers, etc. Every kernel components need UUID/GUID has its own definition. This patch provides a unified definition for UUID/GUID. UUID is defined via typedef. This makes that UUID appears more like a preliminary type, and makes the data type explicit (comparing with implicit "u8 uuid[16]"). The binary representation of UUID/GUID can be little-endian (used by EFI, etc) or big-endian (defined by RFC4122), so both is defined.

This reverts commit a069c266ae5fdfbf5b4aecf2c672413aa33b2504. It turns ou that not only was it missing a case (XFS) that needed it, but perhaps more importantly, people sometimes want to enable new modules that they hadn't had enabled before, and if such a module uses list_sort(), it can't easily be inserted any more. So rather than add a "select LIST_SORT" to the XFS case, just leave it compiled in. It's not all _that_ big, after all, and the inconvenience isn't worth it.

2010-01-12lib: Introduce generic list_sort functionDave Chinner1-1/+1
There are two copies of list_sort() in the tree already, one in the DRM code, another in ubifs. Now XFS needs this as well. Create a generic list_sort() function from the ubifs version and convert existing users to it so we don't end up with yet another copy in the tree.

2009-07-29lib: flexible array implementationDave Hansen1-1/+1
Once a structure goes over PAGE_SIZE*2, we see occasional allocation failures. Some people have chosen to switch over to things like vmalloc() that will let them keep array-like access to such a large structures. But, vmalloc() has plenty of downsides. Here's an alternative. I think it's what Andrew was suggesting here: http://lkml.org/lkml/2009/7/2/518 I call it a flexible array. It does all of its work in PAGE_SIZE bits, so never does an order>0 allocation. The base level has PAGE_SIZE-2*sizeof(int) bytes of storage for pointers to the second level. So, with a 32-bit arch, you get about 4MB (4183112 bytes) of total storage when the objects pack nicely into a page. It is half that on 64-bit because the pointers are twice the size. There's a table detailing this in the code. There are kerneldocs for the functions, but here's an overview: flex_array_alloc() - dynamically allocate a base structure flex_array_free() - free the array and all of the second-level pages flex_array_free_parts() - free the second-level pages, but not the base (for static bases) flex_array_put() - copy into the array at the given index flex_array_get() - copy out of the array at the given index flex_array_prealloc() - preallocate the second-level pages between the given indexes to guarantee no allocs will occur at put() time. We could also potentially just pass the "element_size" into each of the API functions instead of storing it internally. That would get us one more base pointer on 32-bit. I've been testing this by running it in userspace. The header and patch that I've been using are here, as well as the little script I'm using to generate the size table which goes in the kerneldocs. http://sr71.net/~dave/linux/flexarray/ [akpm@linux-foundation.org: coding-style fixes] Signed-off-by: Dave Hansen <dave@linux.vnet.ibm.com> Reviewed-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>

2009-06-15lib: Provide generic atomic64_t implementationPaul Mackerras1-0/+2
Many processor architectures have no 64-bit atomic instructions, but we need atomic64_t in order to support the perf_counter subsystem. This adds an implementation of 64-bit atomic operations using hashed spinlocks to provide atomicity. For each atomic operation, the address of the atomic64_t variable is hashed to an index into an array of 16 spinlocks. That spinlock is taken (with interrupts disabled) around the operation, which can then be coded non-atomically within the lock. On UP, all the spinlock manipulation goes away and we simply disable interrupts around each operation. In fact gcc eliminates the whole atomic64_lock variable as well.

2009-03-24dynamic debug: combine dprintk and dynamic printkJason Baron1-1/+1
This patch combines Greg Bank's dprintk() work with the existing dynamic printk patchset, we are now calling it 'dynamic debug'. The new feature of this patchset is a richer /debugfs control file interface, (an example output from my system is at the bottom), which allows fined grained control over the the debug output. The output can be controlled by function, file, module, format string, and line number. for example, enabled all debug messages in module 'nf_conntrack': echo -n 'module nf_conntrack +p' > /mnt/debugfs/dynamic_debug/control to disable them: echo -n 'module nf_conntrack -p' > /mnt/debugfs/dynamic_debug/control A further explanation can be found in the documentation patch.
