2010-03-30include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking ↵Tejun Heo2-0/+2
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.

2009-10-19wimax: allow WIMAX_RF_QUERY calls when state is still uninitializedInaky Perez-Gonzalez1-1/+8
Until now, calls to wimax_rfkill() will be blocked until the device is at least past the WIMAX_ST_UNINITIALIZED state, return -ENOMEDIUM when the device is in the WIMAX_ST_DOWN state. In parallel, wimax-tools would issue a wimax_rfkill(WIMAX_RF_QUERY) call right after opening a handle with wimaxll_open() as means to verify if the interface is really a WiMAX interface [newer kernel version will have a call specifically for this]. The combination of these two facts is that in some cases, before the driver has finalized initializing its device's firmware, a wimaxll_open() call would fail, when it should not. Thus, change the wimax_rfkill() code to allow queries when the device is in WIMAX_ST_UNINITIALIZED state. Signed-off-by: Inaky Perez-Gonzalez <inaky@linux.intel.com>
2009-10-19wimax: allow user space to send messages once the device is registeredInaky Perez-Gonzalez1-0/+2
It makes sense that the messaging pipe to the device can be used before the device is fully ready, as long as it is registered with the stack. Some debugging tools need it. Signed-off-by: Inaky Perez-Gonzalez <inaky@linux.intel.com>
2009-10-19wimax: allow specifying debug levels as command line optionInaky Perez-Gonzalez1-0/+11
Add "debug" module options to all the wimax modules (including drivers) so that the debug levels can be set upon kernel boot or module load time. This is needed as currently there was a limitation where the debug levels could only be set when a device was succesfully enumerated. This made it difficult to debug issues that made a device not probe properly. Signed-off-by: Inaky Perez-Gonzalez <inaky@linux.intel.com>
2009-10-19wimax: indicate initial SW rfkill state is "blocked"Inaky Perez-Gonzalez1-0/+1
The WiMAX stack assumes that all WiMAX devices are SW OFF when they are initialized. The recent changes in the RFKILL stack thus cause an initial call after rfkill_register(), because by default, rfkill considers devices to be SW ON upon registration. So call rfkill_init_sw_state() to set it to SW OFF so rfkill_register() doesn't do that unnecessary step. Signed-off-by: Inaky Perez-Gonzalez <inaky@linux.intel.com>

2009-06-03rfkill: rewriteJohannes Berg2-111/+26
This patch completely rewrites the rfkill core to address the following deficiencies: * all rfkill drivers need to implement polling where necessary rather than having one central implementation * updating the rfkill state cannot be done from arbitrary contexts, forcing drivers to use schedule_work and requiring lots of code * rfkill drivers need to keep track of soft/hard blocked internally -- the core should do this * the rfkill API has many unexpected quirks, for example being asymmetric wrt. alloc/free and register/unregister * rfkill can call back into a driver from within a function the driver called -- this is prone to deadlocks and generally should be avoided * rfkill-input pointlessly is a separate module * drivers need to #ifdef rfkill functions (unless they want to depend on or select RFKILL) -- rfkill should provide inlines that do nothing if it isn't compiled in * the rfkill structure is not opaque -- drivers need to initialise it correctly (lots of sanity checking code required) -- instead force drivers to pass the right variables to rfkill_alloc() * the documentation is hard to read because it always assumes the reader is completely clueless and contains way TOO MANY CAPS * the rfkill code needlessly uses a lot of locks and atomic operations in locked sections * fix LED trigger to actually change the LED when the radio state changes -- this wasn't done before Tested-by: Alan Jenkins <alan-jenkins@tuffmail.co.uk> Signed-off-by: Henrique de Moraes Holschuh <hmh@hmh.eng.br> [thinkpad] Signed-off-by: Johannes Berg <johannes@sipsolutions.net> Signed-off-by: John W.

2009-05-28wimax: Add netlink interface to get device statePaulius Zaleckas5-1/+93
wimax connection manager / daemon has to know what is current state of the device. Previously it was only possible to get notification whet state has changed. Note: By mistake, the new generic netlink's number for WIMAX_GNL_OP_STATE_GET was declared inserting into the existing list of API calls, not appending; thus, it'd break existing API.

2009-05-06wimax: oops: wimax_dev_add() is the only one that can initialize the stateInaky Perez-Gonzalez1-2/+15
When a new wimax_dev is created, it's state has to be __WIMAX_ST_NULL until wimax_dev_add() is succesfully called. This allows calls into the stack that happen before said time to be rejected. Until now, the state was being set (by mistake) to UNINITIALIZED, which was allowing calls such as wimax_report_rfkill_hw() to go through even when a call to wimax_dev_add() had failed; that was causing an oops when touching uninitialized data. This situation is normal when the device starts reporting state before the whole initialization has been completed. It just has to be dealt with.

When a non-wimax interface is looked up by the stack, a bad pointer is returned when the looked-up interface is not found in the list (of registered WiMAX interfaces).

2009-02-05netlink: change return-value logic of netlink_broadcast()Pablo Neira Ayuso2-14/+7
Currently, netlink_broadcast() reports errors to the caller if no messages at all were delivered: 1) If, at least, one message has been delivered correctly, returns 0. 2) Otherwise, if no messages at all were delivered due to skb_clone() failure, return -ENOBUFS. 3) Otherwise, if there are no listeners, return -ESRCH. With this patch, the caller knows if the delivery of any of the messages to the listeners have failed: 1) If it fails to deliver any message (for whatever reason), return -ENOBUFS. 2) Otherwise, if all messages were delivered OK, returns 0. 3) Otherwise, if no listeners, return -ESRCH. In the current ctnetlink code and in Netfilter in general, we can add reliable logging and connection tracking event delivery by dropping the packets whose events were not successfully delivered over Netlink. Of course, this option would be settable via /proc as this approach reduces performance (in terms of filtered connections per seconds by a stateful firewall) but providing reliable logging and event delivery (for conntrackd) in return. This patch also changes some clients of netlink_broadcast() that may report ENOBUFS errors via printk. This error handling is not of any help. Instead, the userspace daemons that are listening to those netlink messages should resync themselves with the kernel-side if they hit ENOBUFS. BTW, netlink_broadcast() clients include those that call cn_netlink_send(), nlmsg_multicast() and genlmsg_multicast() since they internally call netlink_broadcast() and return its error value.

2009-01-29wimax: fix build issue when debugfs is disabledInaky Perez-Gonzalez2-11/+13

These definitions are always needed if debug is enabled at compile time (independently of DEBUG_FS being or not enabled), so moving them to a file that is always compiled fixes the issue.

WiMAX can work without RFKILL, but it was missing a check to make sure RFKILL is not being made a module with wimax compiled into the kernel. This caused failed builds in s390, where CONFIG_INPUT is always off. When RFKILL is enabled, the code uses the input layer to report hardware switch changes; thus, if RFKILL is enabled, INPUT has to be too. It also needs to display some message when INPUT is disabled that explains why WiMAX is not selectable. (issues found by Randy Dunlap in the linux-next tree).

2009-01-07wimax: basic API: kernel/user messaging, rfkill and resetInaky Perez-Gonzalez3-0/+1096
Implements the three basic operations provided by the stack's control interface to WiMAX devices: - Messaging channel between user space and driver/device This implements a direct communication channel between user space and the driver/device, by which free form messages can be sent back and forth. This is intended for device-specific features, vendor quirks, etc. - RF-kill framework integration Provide most of the RF-Kill integration for WiMAX drivers so that all device drivers have to do is after wimax_dev_add() is call wimax_report_rfkill_{hw,sw}() to update initial state and then every time it changes. Provides wimax_rfkill() for the kernel to call to set software RF-Kill status and/or query current hardware and software switch status. Exports wimax_rfkill() over generic netlink to user space. - Reset a WiMAX device Provides wimax_reset() for the kernel to reset a wimax device as needed and exports it over generic netlink to user space. This API is clearly limited, as it still provides no way to do the basic scan, connect and disconnect in a hardware independent way. The WiMAX case is more complex than WiFi due to the way networks are discovered and provisioned. The next developments are to add the basic operations so they can be offerent by different drivers. However, we'd like to get more vendors to jump in and provide feedback of how the user/kernel API/abstraction layer should be. The user space code for the i2400m, as of now, uses the messaging channel, but that will change as the API evolves.
