2005-05-05[PATCH] documentation for strncpy()walter harms1-0/+4
this clarifies the documentation on the behavier of strncpy(). Signed-off-by: Domen Puncer <domen@coderock.org> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2005-05-05[PATCH] fix lib/sort regression testDomen Puncer1-1/+1
The regression test in lib/sort.c is currently worthless because the array that is generated for sorting will be all zeros. This patch fixes things so that the array that is generated will contain unsorted integers (that are not all identical) as was probably intended.

2005-05-05[PATCH] x86_64: make string func definition work as intendedPaolo 'Blaisorblade' Giarrusso1-0/+4
In include/asm-x86_64/string.h there are such comments: /* Use C out of line version for memcmp */ #define memcmp __builtin_memcmp int memcmp(const void * cs,const void * ct,size_t count); This would mean that if the compiler does not decide to use __builtin_memcmp, it emits a call to memcmp to be satisfied by the C out-of-line version in lib/string.c. What happens is that after preprocessing, in lib/string.i you may find the definition of "__builtin_strcmp". Actually, by accident, in the object you will find the definition of strcmp and such (maybe a trick intended to redirect calls to __builtin_memcmp to the default memcmp when the definition is not expanded); however, this particular case is not a documented feature as far as I can see. Also, the EXPORT_SYMBOL does not work, so it's duplicated in the arch. I simply added some #undef to lib/string.c and removed the (now duplicated) exports in x86-64 and UML/x86_64 subarchs (the second ones are introduced by another patch I just posted for -mm).

2005-05-01[PATCH] remove all kernel BUGsMatt Mackall1-0/+1
This patch eliminates all kernel BUGs, trims about 35k off the typical kernel, and makes the system slightly faster. Signed-off-by: Matt Mackall <mpm@selenic.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2005-05-01[PATCH] use smp_mb/wmb/rmb where possibleakpm@osdl.org2-5/+5
Replace a number of memory barriers with smp_ variants. This means we won't take the unnecessary hit on UP machines. Signed-off-by: Anton Blanchard <anton@samba.org> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2005-04-18[PATCH] kobject/hotplug split - kobject add/removekay.sievers@vrfy.org1-4/+3
kobject_add() and kobject_del() don't emit hotplug events anymore. The user should do it itself if it has finished populating the device directory. Signed-off-by: Kay Sievers <kay.sievers@vrfy.org> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@suse.de>
2005-04-16[PATCH] add Big Endian variants of ioread/iowriteJames Bottomley1-0/+20
In the new io infrastructure, all of our operators are expecting the underlying device to be little endian (because the PCI bus, their main consumer, is LE). However, there are a fair few devices and busses in the world that are actually Big Endian. There's even evidence that some of these BE bus and chip types are attached to LE systems. Thus, there's a need for a BE equivalent of our io{read,write}{16,32} operations. The attached patch adds this as io{read,write}{16,32}be. When it's in, I'll add the first consume (the 53c700 SCSI chip driver).

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!
