2007-02-20[PATCH] fb: SM501 framebuffer driverBen Dooks3-0/+1805
Driver for the Silicon Motion SM501 multifunction device framebuffer subsystem. This driver supports both the CRT and LCD panel heads, with some simple acceleration for the cursor plotting and support for screen panning. There is no current support for bitblt/drawing engines, which should be added at a later date. This has been tested on a number of configurations, including PCI and generic-bus, on PPC, ARM and SH4 [akpm@linux-foundation.org: fix warnings] Signed-off-by: Ben Dooks <ben-linux@fluff.org> Signed-off-by: Vincent Sanders <vince@arm.linux.org.u.> Acked-by: James Simmons <jsimmons@infradead.org> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

2007-02-20[PATCH] remove modpost false warnings on ARMDavid Brownell1-8/+28
This patch stops "modpost" from issuing erroneous modpost warnings on ARM builds, which it's been doing since since maybe last summer. A canonical example would be driver method table entries: WARNING: <path> - Section mismatch: reference to .exit.text:<name>_remove from .data after '$d' (at offset 0x4) That "$d" symbol is generated by tools conformant with ARM ABI specs; in this case it's a symbol **in the middle of** a "<name>_driver" struct. The erroneous warnings appear to be issued because "modpost" whitelists references from "<name>_driver" data into init and exit sections ... but doesn't know should also include those "$d" mapping symbols, which are not otherwise associated with "<name>_driver" symbols. This patch prevents the modpost symbol lookup code from ever returning those mapping symbols, so it will return a whitelisted symbol instead. Then things work as expected. Now to revert various code-bloating "fixes" that got merged because of this modpost bug....

2007-02-20[PATCH] at91_rtc updatesDavid Brownell1-6/+13
Various bug fixes to the at91rm9200 RTC: - alarm: setalarm() should pay attention to the "enabled" flag - init: cleaner handling of the wakeup flags, which cpu init should really have set up. Doing it here is just a workaround. - linkage: since the at91_rtc driver probe() routine is in the init section, it should use platform_driver_probe() instead of leaving that pointer around in the driver struct after init section removal. - linkage: likewise, remove() belongs in the exit section. Among other things, the init and alarm changes ensure that this driver handles the new sysfs "wakealarm" attribute properly.

2007-02-20[PATCH] rtc-sa1100 rtc_wklarm.enabled bugfixesDavid Brownell1-5/+7
Some rtc-sa1100 bugfixes: - The read_alarm() method reports the rtc_wkalrm.enabled field properly. This patch is already in the handhelds.org tree. - And the set_alarm() method now handles that flag correctly, rather than making mismatched {en,dis}able_irq_wake() calls, which trigger runtime warning messages. (Those calls are best made in suspend/resume methods.) Note that while this SA1100/PXA RTC is fully capable of waking those ARM processors from sleep states, that mechanism isn't properly supported on either processor family, or in this driver. Some boards have board-specific PM glue providing partial workarounds for the weak generic PM support.

2007-02-20[PATCH] autofs4: check for directory re-create in lookupIan Kent1-4/+19
This problem was identified and fixed some time ago by Jeff Moyer but it fell through the cracks somehow. It is possible that a user space application could remove and re-create a directory during a request. To avoid returning a failure from lookup incorrectly when our current dentry is unhashed we need to check if another positive, hashed dentry matching this one exists and if so return it instead of a fail.

2007-02-20[PATCH] autofs4: fix another race between mount and expireIan Kent3-23/+161
Jeff Moyer has identified a race between mount and expire. What happens is that during an expire the situation can arise that a directory is removed and another lookup is done before the expire issues a completion status to the kernel module. In this case, since the the lookup gets a new dentry, it doesn't know that there is an expire in progress and when it posts its mount request, matches the existing expire request and waits for its completion. ENOENT is then returned to user space from lookup (as the dentry passed in is now unhashed) without having performed the mount request. The solution used here is to keep track of dentrys in this unhashed state and reuse them, if possible, in order to preserve the flags. Additionally, this infrastructure will provide the framework for the reintroduction of caching of mount fails removed earlier in development.

2007-02-20[PATCH] fs: fix nobh data leakNick Piggin1-18/+3
nobh_prepare_write leaks data similarly to how simple_prepare_write did. Fix by not marking the page uptodate until nobh_commit_write time. Again, this could break weird use-cases, but none appear to exist in the tree. We can safely remove the set_page_dirty, because as the comment says, nobh_commit_write does set_page_dirty. If a filesystem wants to allocate backing store for a page dirtied via mmap, page_mkwrite is the suggested approach.

2007-02-20[PATCH] fs: fix libfs data leakNick Piggin2-2/+8
simple_prepare_write leaks uninitialised kernel data. This happens because the it leaves an uninitialised "hole" over the part of the page that the write is expected to go to. This is fine, but it then marks the page uptodate, which means a concurrent read can come in and copy the uninitialised memory into userspace before it written to. Fix it by simply marking it uptodate in simple_commit_write instead, after the hole has been filled in. This could theoretically break an fs that uses simple_prepare_write and not simple_commit_write, and that relies on the incorrect simple_prepare_write behaviour. Luckily, none of those exists in the tree.

The problem comes when ks0108/cfag12864b are built-in and no parallel port is present. ks0108_init() is called first, as it should be, but fails to load (as there is no parallel port to use). After that, cfag12864b_init() gets called, without knowing anything about ks0108 failed, and calls ks0108_writecontrol(), which dereferences an uninitialized pointer. Init order is OK, I think. The problem is how to stop cfag12864b_init() being called if ks0108 failed to load. modprobe does it for us, but, how when built-in?

Even if there were no bug, it is a good idea to bring the error case into line with the common case here.

2007-02-20[PATCH] shm: make sysv ipc shared memory use stacked filesEric W. Biederman1-85/+155
The current ipc shared memory code runs into several problems because it does not quite use files like the rest of the kernel. With the option of backing ipc shared memory with either hugetlbfs or ordinary shared memory the problems got worse. With the added support for ipc namespaces things behaved so unexpected that we now have several bad namespace reference counting bugs when using what appears at first glance to be a reasonable idiom. So to attack these problems and hopefully make the code more maintainable this patch simply uses the files provided by other parts of the kernel and builds it's own files out of them. The shm files are allocated in do_shmat and freed when their reference count drops to zero with their last unmap. The file and vm operations that we don't want to implement or we don't implement completely we just delegate to the operations of our backing file. This means that we now get an accurate shm_nattch count for we have a hugetlbfs inode for backing store, and the shm accounting of last attach and last detach time work as well. This means that getting a reference to the ipc namespace when we create the file and dropping the referenece in the release method is now safe and correct. This means we no longer need a special case for clearing VM_MAYWRITE as our file descriptor now only has write permissions when we have requested write access when calling shmat. Although VM_SHARED is now cleared as well which I believe is harmless and is mostly likely a minor bug fix. By using the same set of operations for both the hugetlb case and regular shared memory case shmdt is not simplified and made slightly more correct as now the test "vma->vm_ops == &shm_vm_ops" is 100% accurate in spotting all shared memory regions generated from sysvipc shared memory.

2007-02-20[PATCH] slab: reduce size of alien cache to cover only possible nodesChristoph Lameter2-2/+2
The alien cache is a per cpu per node array allocated for every slab on the system. Currently we size this array for all nodes that the kernel does support. For IA64 this is 1024 nodes. So we allocate an array with 1024 objects even if we only boot a system with 4 nodes. This patch uses "nr_node_ids" to determine the number of possible nodes supported by a hardware configuration and only allocates an alien cache sized for possible nodes. The initialization of nr_node_ids occurred too late relative to the bootstrap of the slab allocator and so I moved the setup_nr_node_ids() into free_area_init_nodes().

2007-02-20[PATCH] Convert highest_possible_processor_id to nr_cpu_idsChristoph Lameter5-29/+17
We frequently need the maximum number of possible processors in order to allocate arrays for all processors. So far this was done using highest_possible_processor_id(). However, we do need the number of processors not the highest id. Moreover the number was so far dynamically calculated on each invokation. The number of possible processors does not change when the system is running. We can therefore calculate that number once.

2007-02-20[PATCH] Replace highest_possible_node_id() with nr_node_idsChristoph Lameter3-18/+25
highest_possible_node_id() is currently used to calculate the last possible node idso that the network subsystem can figure out how to size per node arrays. I think having the ability to determine the maximum amount of nodes in a system at runtime is useful but then we should name this entry correspondingly, it should return the number of node_ids, and the the value needs to be setup only once on bootup. The node_possible_map does not change after bootup. This patch introduces nr_node_ids and replaces the use of highest_possible_node_id(). nr_node_ids is calculated on bootup when the page allocators pagesets are initialized.
