2011-10-11x86: Default to vsyscall=native for nowAdrian Bunk1-3/+4
This UML breakage: linux-[3800] vsyscall fault (exploit attempt?) ip:ffffffffff600000 cs:33 sp:7fbfb9c498 ax:ffffffffff600000 si:0 di:606790 linux-[3856] vsyscall fault (exploit attempt?) ip:ffffffffff600000 cs:33 sp:7fbfb13168 ax:ffffffffff600000 si:0 di:606790 Is caused by commit 3ae36655 ("x86-64: Rework vsyscall emulation and add vsyscall= parameter") - the vsyscall emulation code is not fully cooked yet as UML relies on some rather fragile SIGSEGV semantics. Linus suggested in https://lkml.org/lkml/2011/8/9/376 to default to vsyscall=native for now, this patch implements that.

2011-09-21hwmon: (coretemp) Don't use threshold registers for tempX_maxGuenter Roeck1-7/+0
With commit c814a4c7c4aad795835583344353963a0a673eb0, the meaning of tempX_max was changed. It no longer returns the value of bits 8:15 of MSR_IA32_TEMPERATURE_TARGET, but instead returns the value of CPU threshold register T1. tempX_max_hyst was added to reflect the value of temperature threshold register T0. As it turns out, T0 and T1 are used on some systems, presumably by the BIOS. Also, T0 and T1 don't have a well defined meaning. The thresholds may be used as upper or lower limits, and it is not guaranteed that T0 <= T1. Thus, the new attribute mapping does not reflect the actual usage of the threshold registers. Also, register contents are changed during runtime by an entity other than the hwmon driver, meaning the values cached by the driver do not reflect actual register contents. Revert most of c814a4c7c4aad795835583344353963a0a673eb0 to address the problem. Support for T0 and T1 will be added back in with a separate commit, using new attribute names.

2011-09-21hwmon: (coretemp) Let the user force TjMaxJean Delvare1-3/+4
On old CPUs (and even some recent Atom CPUs) TjMax can't be read from the CPU registers, so it is guessed by the driver using a complex heuristic which isn't reliable. So let users who know their CPU's TjMax pass it as a module parameter.

2011-09-21[media] videodev2.h: add V4L2_CTRL_FLAG_VOLATILEHans Verkuil3-1/+25
Add a new VOLATILE control flag that is set for volatile controls. That way applications know whether the value of the control is volatile (i.e. can change continuously) or not. Until now this was an internal property, but it is useful to know in userspace as well. A typical use case is the gain value when autogain is on. In that case the hardware will continuously adjust the gain based various environmental factors. This patch just adds and documents the flag, it's not yet used.

2011-09-14memcg: Revert "memcg: add memory.vmscan_stat"Johannes Weiner1-84/+1
Revert the post-3.0 commit 82f9d486e59f5 ("memcg: add memory.vmscan_stat"). The implementation of per-memcg reclaim statistics violates how memcg hierarchies usually behave: hierarchically. The reclaim statistics are accounted to child memcgs and the parent hitting the limit, but not to hierarchy levels in between. Usually, hierarchical statistics are perfectly recursive, with each level representing the sum of itself and all its children. Since this exports statistics to userspace, this may lead to confusion and problems with changing things after the release, so revert it now, we can try again later.

The CONFIG_RELOCATABLE code tries to align the unpack destination to the value of 'kernel_alignment' in the setup_hdr. If that's 0, it tries to unpack to address 0, which in fact causes the gunzip code to call 'error("Out of memory while allocating output buffer")'. The bootloader (ie. the lguest Launcher in this case) should be doing setting this field; the normal bzImage is 16M, we can use the same.
