2011-09-16ipw2x00: fix rtnl mutex deadlockStanislaw Gruszka2-20/+40
This fix regression introduced by: commit: ecb4433550f0620f3d1471ae7099037ede30a91e Author: Stanislaw Gruszka <sgruszka@redhat.com> Date: Fri Aug 12 14:00:59 2011 +0200 mac80211: fix suspend/resume races with unregister hw Above commit add rtnl_lock() into wiphy_register(), what cause deadlock when initializing ipw2x00 driver, which itself call wiphy_register() from register_netdev() internal callback with rtnl mutex taken. To fix move wiphy_register() outside register_netdev(). This solution have side effect of not creating /sys/class/net/wlanX/phy80211 link, but that's a minor issue we can live with.

2011-01-10ipw2200: Check for -1 INTA in tasklet too.Indan Zupancic1-0/+7
This is an attempt to fix a long standing open bug: http://bugzilla.intellinuxwireless.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1334 The interrupt handler checks for INTA being -1, apparently that means that the hardware is gone. But the interrupt handler defers actual interrupt processing to a tasklet. By the time the tasklet is run and checks INTA again, the hardware might be gone and INTA be -1, which confuses the driver because all event bits are set. The patch applies to 2.6.37.

2010-11-05ipw2x00: remove the right /proc/net entryLinus Torvalds1-4/+5
Commit 27ae60f8f7aa ("ipw2x00: replace "ieee80211" with "libipw" where appropriate") changed DRV_NAME to be "libipw", but didn't properly fix up the places where it was used to specify the name for the /proc/net/ directory. For backwards compatibility reasons, that directory name remained "ieee80211", but due to the DRV_NAME change, the error case printouts and the cleanup functions now used "libipw" instead. Which made it all fail badly. For example, on module unload as reported by Randy: WARNING: at fs/proc/generic.c:816 remove_proc_entry+0x156/0x35e() name 'libipw' because it's trying to unregister a /proc directory that obviously doesn't even exist. Clean it all up to use DRV_PROCNAME for the actual /proc directory name. Reported-and-tested-by: Randy Dunlap <randy.dunlap@oracle.com> Cc: Pavel Roskin <proski@gnu.org> Cc: John W.

2010-05-10PM QOS updateMark Gross1-5/+6
This patch changes the string based list management to a handle base implementation to help with the hot path use of pm-qos, it also renames much of the API to use "request" as opposed to "requirement" that was used in the initial implementation. I did this because request more accurately represents what it actually does. Also, I added a string based ABI for users wanting to use a string interface. So if the user writes 0xDDDDDDDD formatted hex it will be accepted by the interface. (someone asked me for it and I don't think it hurts anything.) This patch updates some documentation input I got from Randy. Signed-off-by: markgross <mgross@linux.intel.com> Signed-off-by: Rafael J. Wysocki <rjw@sisk.pl>

When a scan watchdog is fired, try to send abort scan command first before restarting the adapter. This avoids reconnection for some users when scan hang is detected.

2010-03-30include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking ↵Tejun Heo4-2/+3
implicit slab.h inclusion from percpu.h percpu.h is included by sched.h and module.h and thus ends up being included when building most .c files. percpu.h includes slab.h which in turn includes gfp.h making everything defined by the two files universally available and complicating inclusion dependencies. percpu.h -> slab.h dependency is about to be removed. Prepare for this change by updating users of gfp and slab facilities include those headers directly instead of assuming availability. As this conversion needs to touch large number of source files, the following script is used as the basis of conversion. http://userweb.kernel.org/~tj/misc/slabh-sweep.py The script does the followings. * Scan files for gfp and slab usages and update includes such that only the necessary includes are there. ie. if only gfp is used, gfp.h, if slab is used, slab.h. * When the script inserts a new include, it looks at the include blocks and try to put the new include such that its order conforms to its surrounding. It's put in the include block which contains core kernel includes, in the same order that the rest are ordered - alphabetical, Christmas tree, rev-Xmas-tree or at the end if there doesn't seem to be any matching order. * If the script can't find a place to put a new include (mostly because the file doesn't have fitting include block), it prints out an error message indicating which .h file needs to be added to the file. The conversion was done in the following steps. 1. The initial automatic conversion of all .c files updated slightly over 4000 files, deleting around 700 includes and adding ~480 gfp.h and ~3000 slab.h inclusions. The script emitted errors for ~400 files. 2. Each error was manually checked. Some didn't need the inclusion, some needed manual addition while adding it to implementation .h or embedding .c file was more appropriate for others. This step added inclusions to around 150 files. 3. The script was run again and the output was compared to the edits from #2 to make sure no file was left behind. 4. Several build tests were done and a couple of problems were fixed. e.g. lib/decompress_*.c used malloc/free() wrappers around slab APIs requiring slab.h to be added manually. 5. The script was run on all .h files but without automatically editing them as sprinkling gfp.h and slab.h inclusions around .h files could easily lead to inclusion dependency hell. Most gfp.h inclusion directives were ignored as stuff from gfp.h was usually wildly available and often used in preprocessor macros. Each slab.h inclusion directive was examined and added manually as necessary. 6. percpu.h was updated not to include slab.h. 7. Build test were done on the following configurations and failures were fixed. CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL was turned off for all tests (as my distributed build env didn't work with gcov compiles) and a few more options had to be turned off depending on archs to make things build (like ipr on powerpc/64 which failed due to missing writeq). * x86 and x86_64 UP and SMP allmodconfig and a custom test config. * powerpc and powerpc64 SMP allmodconfig * sparc and sparc64 SMP allmodconfig * ia64 SMP allmodconfig * s390 SMP allmodconfig * alpha SMP allmodconfig * um on x86_64 SMP allmodconfig 8. percpu.h modifications were reverted so that it could be applied as a separate patch and serve as bisection point. Given the fact that I had only a couple of failures from tests on step 6, I'm fairly confident about the coverage of this conversion patch. If there is a breakage, it's likely to be something in one of the arch headers which should be easily discoverable easily on most builds of the specific arch.

2010-03-15ipw2x00: replace "ieee80211" with "libipw" where appropriatePavel Roskin4-28/+27
"ieee80211" was the old name of the common library for ipw2100 and ipw2200. It was renamed to "libipw", but some occurrences of the old name remained. Rename alloc_ieee80211() to alloc_libipw() and free_ieee80211() to free_libipw(). Adjust comments and label names. Change prefixes in diagnostic messages. Keep /proc/net/ieee80211 under the original name to avoid breaking user interface. Move the affected EXPORT_SYMBOL macros to their proper places.
