2006-09-30[PATCH] BLOCK: Move extern declarations out of fs/*.c into header files [try #6]David Howells1-0/+2
Create a new header file, fs/internal.h, for common definitions local to the sources in the fs/ directory. Move extern definitions that should be in header files from fs/*.c to fs/internal.h or other main header files where they span directories.

2006-09-29[PATCH] posix-timers: Fix clock_nanosleep() doesn't return the remaining ↵Toyo Abe1-0/+33
time in compatibility mode The clock_nanosleep() function does not return the time remaining when the sleep is interrupted by a signal. This patch creates a new call out, compat_clock_nanosleep_restart(), which handles returning the remaining time after a sleep is interrupted. This patch revives clock_nanosleep_restart(). It is now accessed via the new call out. The compat_clock_nanosleep_restart() is used for compatibility access. Since this is implemented in compatibility mode the normal path is virtually unaffected - no real performance impact.

2006-06-25[PATCH] N32 sigset and __COMPAT_ENDIAN_SWAP__akpm@osdl.org1-7/+0
I'm testing glibc on MIPS64, little-endian, N32, O32 and N64 multilibs. Among the NPTL test failures seen are some arising from sigsuspend problems for N32: it blocks the wrong signals, so SIGCANCEL (SIGRTMIN) is blocked despite glibc's carefully excluding it from sets of signals to block. Specifically, testing suggests it blocks signal N^32 instead of signal N, so (in the example tested) blocking SIGUSR1 (17) blocks signal 49 instead. glibc's sigset_t uses an array of unsigned long, as does the kernel. In both cases, signal N+1 is represented as (1UL << (N % (8 * sizeof (unsigned long)))) in word number (N / (8 * sizeof (unsigned long))). Thus the N32 glibc uses an array of 32-bit words and the N64 kernel uses an array of 64-bit words. For little-endian, the layout is the same, with signals 1-32 in the first 4 bytes, signals 33-64 in the second, etc.; for big-endian, userspace has that layout while in the kernel each 8 bytes have the two halves swapped from the userspace layout. The N32 sigsuspend syscall uses sigset_from_compat to convert the userspace sigset to kernel format. If __COMPAT_ENDIAN_SWAP__ is *not* set, this uses logic of the form set->sig[0] = compat->sig[0] | (((long)compat->sig[1]) << 32 ) to convert the userspace sigset to a kernel one. This looks correct to me for both big and little endian, given that in userspace compat->sig[1] will represent signals 33-64, and so will the high 32 bits of set->sig[0] in the kernel. If however __COMPAT_ENDIAN_SWAP__ *is* set, as it is for __MIPSEL__, it uses set->sig[0] = compat->sig[1] | (((long)compat->sig[0]) << 32 ); which seems incorrect for both big and little endian, and would explain the observed symptoms. This code is the only use of __COMPAT_ENDIAN_SWAP__, so if incorrect then that macro serves no purpose, in which case something like the following patch would seem appropriate to remove it.

2006-06-23[PATCH] move_pages: fix 32 -> 64 bit compat functionChristoph Lameter1-2/+2
The definition of the third parameter is a pointer to an array of virtual addresses which give us some trouble. The existing code calculated the wrong address in the array since I used void to avoid having to specify a type. I now use the correct type "compat_uptr_t __user *" in the definition of the function in kernel/compat.c. However, I used __u32 in syscalls.h. Would have to include compat.h there in order to provide the same definition which would generate an ugly include situation. On both ia64 and x86_64 compat_uptr_t is u32. So this works although parameter declarations differ.

2006-06-23[PATCH] sys_move_pages: 32bit support (i386, x86_64)Christoph Lameter1-0/+23
sys_move_pages() support for 32bit (i386 plus x86_64 compat layer) Add support for move_pages() on i386 and also add the compat functions necessary to run 32 bit binaries on x86_64. Add compat_sys_move_pages to the x86_64 32bit binary layer. Note that it is not up to date so I added the missing pieces. Not sure if this is done the right way.

2006-01-18[PATCH] Generic sys_rt_sigsuspend()David Woodhouse1-0/+28
The TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK flag allows us to have a generic implementation of sys_rt_sigsuspend() instead of duplicating it for each architecture. This provides such an implementation and makes arch/powerpc use it. It also tidies up the ppc32 sys_sigsuspend() to use TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK.

The comment in compat.c is wrong, every architecture provides a get_compat_sigevent() for the IPC compat code already.

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!
