2005-05-01[PATCH] Documentation: remove super-{nr, max} to reflect fs/super.cCosmin Nicolaescu1-10/+0
The patch updates the documentation for /proc. super-nr and super-max have been dropped from the kernel since 2.4.9 due to minor numbering issues. This change was not documented in the documentation. Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>

2005-05-01[PATCH] Docbook: use custom stylesheetMartin Waitz2-1/+7
With the custom stylesheet, functions are rendered using ANSI-C syntax and xmlto is a bit quieter. Signed-off-by: Martin Waitz <tali@admingilde.org> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2005-05-01[PATCH] DocBook: Use xmlto to process the DocBook files.Martin Waitz2-25/+25
xmlto uses standared XSLT templates to generate manpages, (x)html pages, and XML FO files which can be processed with passivetex. This is much faster than using jadetex for everything. This patch also reduces the number of kernel-specific scripts that are needed to generate documentation.

2005-05-01[PATCH] DocBook: changes and extensions to the kernel documentationPavel Pisa1-7/+179
I have recompiled Linux kernel 2.6.11.5 documentation for me and our university students again. The documentation could be extended for more sources which are equipped by structured comments for recent 2.6 kernels. I have tried to proceed with that task. I have done that more times from 2.6.0 time and it gets boring to do same changes again and again. Linux kernel compiles after changes for i386 and ARM targets. I have added references to some more files into kernel-api book, I have added some section names as well. So please, check that changes do not break something and that categories are not too much skewed. I have changed kernel-doc to accept "fastcall" and "asmlinkage" words reserved by kernel convention. Most of the other changes are modifications in the comments to make kernel-doc happy, accept some parameters description and do not bail out on errors. Changed <pid> to @pid in the description, moved some #ifdef before comments to correct function to comments bindings, etc. You can see result of the modified documentation build at http://cmp.felk.cvut.cz/~pisa/linux/lkdb-2.6.11.tar.gz Some more sources are ready to be included into kernel-doc generated documentation. Sources has been added into kernel-api for now. Some more section names added and probably some more chaos introduced as result of quick cleanup work.

2005-05-01[PATCH] kernel/rcupdate.c: make the exports EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPLPaul E. McKenney1-0/+15
The gpl exports need to be put back. Moving them to GPL -- but in a measured manner, as I proposed on this list some months ago -- is fine. Changing these particular exports precipitously is most definitely -not- fine. Here is my earlier proposal: http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-kernel&m=110520930301813&w=2 See below for a patch that puts the exports back, along with an updated version of my earlier patch that starts the process of moving them to GPL. I will also be following this message with RFC patches that introduce two (EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL) interfaces to replace synchronize_kernel(), which then becomes deprecated.

2005-05-01[PATCH] Increase number of e820 entries hard limit from 32 to 128Venkatesh Pallipadi1-3/+3
The specifications that talk about E820 map doesn't have an upper limit on the number of e820 entries. But, today's kernel has a hard limit of 32. With increase in memory size, we are seeing the number of E820 entries reaching close to 32. Patch below bumps the number upto 128. The patch changes the location of EDDBUF in zero-page (as it comes after E820). As, EDDBUF is not used by boot loaders, this patch should not have any effect on bootloader-setup code interface. Patch covers both i386 and x86-64. Tested on: * grub booting bzImage * lilo booting bzImage with EDID info enabled * pxeboot of bzImage Side-effect: bss increases by ~ 2K and init.data increases by ~7.5K on all systems, due to increase in size of static arrays.

2005-04-16Linux-2.6.12-rc2v2.6.12-rc2Linus Torvalds722-0/+177485
Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
