* Convert files to UTF-8. * Also correct some people's names (one example is Eißfeldt, which was found in a source file. Given that the author used an ß at all in a source file indicates that the real name has in fact a 'ß' and not an 'ss', which is commonly used as a substitute for 'ß' when limited to 7bit.) * Correct town names (Goettingen -> Göttingen) * Update Eberhard Mönkeberg's address (http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/1/8/313) Signed-off-by: Jan Engelhardt <jengelh@gmx.de> Signed-off-by: Adrian Bunk <bunk@kernel.org>

Quoting Randy: "It seems sad that this patch sources Kconfig.marker, a 7-line file, 20-something times. Yes, you (we) don't want to put those 7 lines into 20-something different files, so sourcing is the right thing. However, what you did for avr32 seems more on the right track to me: make _one_ Instrumentation support menu that includes PROFILING, OPROFILE, KPROBES, and MARKERS and then use (source) that in all of the arches."

This patch adapts IA64 to use the generic parse_crashkernel() function instead of its own parsing for the crashkernel command line. Because the total amount of System RAM must be known when calling this function, efi_memmap_init() is modified to return its accumulated total_memory variable. Also, the crashkernel handling is moved in an own function in arch/ia64/kernel/setup.c to make the code more readable.

2007-10-19pid namespaces: changes to show virtual ids to userPavel Emelyanov4-5/+5
This is the largest patch in the set. Make all (I hope) the places where the pid is shown to or get from user operate on the virtual pids. The idea is: - all in-kernel data structures must store either struct pid itself or the pid's global nr, obtained with pid_nr() call; - when seeking the task from kernel code with the stored id one should use find_task_by_pid() call that works with global pids; - when showing pid's numerical value to the user the virtual one should be used, but however when one shows task's pid outside this task's namespace the global one is to be used; - when getting the pid from userspace one need to consider this as the virtual one and use appropriate task/pid-searching functions.

2007-10-19pid namespaces: define is_global_init() and is_container_init()Serge E. Hallyn22-26/+26
is_init() is an ambiguous name for the pid==1 check. Split it into is_global_init() and is_container_init(). A cgroup init has it's tsk->pid == 1. A global init also has it's tsk->pid == 1 and it's active pid namespace is the init_pid_ns. But rather than check the active pid namespace, compare the task structure with 'init_pid_ns.child_reaper', which is initialized during boot to the /sbin/init process and never changes. Changelog: 2.6.22-rc4-mm2-pidns1: - Use 'init_pid_ns.child_reaper' to determine if a given task is the global init (/sbin/init) process. This would improve performance and remove dependence on the task_pid(). 2.6.21-mm2-pidns2: - [Sukadev Bhattiprolu] Changed is_container_init() calls in {powerpc, ppc,avr32}/traps.c for the _exception() call to is_global_init(). This way, we kill only the cgroup if the cgroup's init has a bug rather than force a kernel panic.

2007-10-19pid namespaces: round up the APIPavel Emelianov4-7/+7
The set of functions process_session, task_session, process_group and task_pgrp is confusing, as the names can be mixed with each other when looking at the code for a long time. The proposals are to * equip the functions that return the integer with _nr suffix to represent that fact, * and to make all functions work with task (not process) by making the common prefix of the same name. For monotony the routines signal_session() and set_signal_session() are replaced with task_session_nr() and set_task_session(), especially since they are only used with the explicit task->signal dereference.

2007-10-19x86: fix global_flush_tlb() bugIngo Molnar1-2/+7
While we were reviewing pageattr_32/64.c for unification, Thomas Gleixner noticed the following serious SMP bug in global_flush_tlb(): down_read(&init_mm.mmap_sem); list_replace_init(&deferred_pages, &l); up_read(&init_mm.mmap_sem); this is SMP-unsafe because list_replace_init() done on two CPUs in parallel can corrupt the list. This bug has been introduced about a year ago in the 64-bit tree: commit ea7322decb974a4a3e804f96a0201e893ff88ce3 Author: Andi Kleen <ak@suse.de> Date: Thu Dec 7 02:14:05 2006 +0100 [PATCH] x86-64: Speed and clean up cache flushing in change_page_attr down_read(&init_mm.mmap_sem); - dpage = xchg(&deferred_pages, NULL); + list_replace_init(&deferred_pages, &l); up_read(&init_mm.mmap_sem); the xchg() based version was SMP-safe, but list_replace_init() is not. So this "cleanup" introduced a nasty bug. why this bug never become prominent is a mystery - it can probably be explained with the (still) relative obscurity of the x86_64 architecture. the safe fix for now is to write-lock init_mm.mmap_sem.

2007-10-18powerpc: add scaled time accountingMichael Neuling2-2/+31
This adds POWERPC specific hooks for scaled time accounting. POWER6 includes a SPURR register. The SPURR is based off the PURR register but is scaled based on CPU frequency and issue rates. This gives a more accurate account of the instructions used per task. The PURR and timebase will be constant relative to the wall clock, irrespective of the CPU frequency. This implementation reads the SPURR register in account_system_vtime which is only call called on context witch and hard and soft irq entry and exit. The percentage of user and system time is then estimated using the ratio of these accounted by the PURR. If the SPURR is not present, the PURR read. An earlier implementation of this patch read the SPURR whenever the PURR was read, which included the system call entry and exit path.

(We cannot change cache_add_dev() from CPU_ONLINE event handler to CPU_UP_PREPARE event handler. Because cache_add_dev() needs to do cpuid and store the results with its CPU online.)

On platforms that copy sys_tz into the vdso (currently only x86_64, soon to include powerpc), it is possible for the vdso to get out of sync if a user calls (admittedly unusual) settimeofday(NULL, ptr). This patch adds a hook for architectures that set CONFIG_GENERIC_TIME_VSYSCALL to ensure when sys_tz is updated they can also updatee their copy in the vdso.

2007-10-18Hibernation: Use temporary page tables for kernel text mapping on x86_64Rafael J. Wysocki1-6/+33
Use temporary page tables for the kernel text mapping during hibernation restore on x86_64. Without the patch, the original boot kernel's page tables that represent the kernel text mapping are used while the core of the image kernel is being restored. However, in principle, if the boot kernel is not identical to the image kernel, the location of these page tables in the image kernel need not be the same, so we should create a safe copy of the kernel text mapping prior to restoring the core of the image kernel.

2007-10-18Hibernation: Arbitrary boot kernel support on x86_64Rafael J. Wysocki3-8/+92
Make it possible to restore a hibernation image on x86_64 with the help of a kernel different from the one in the image. The idea is to split the core restoration code into two separate parts and to place each of them in a different page.  The first part belongs to the boot kernel and is executed as the last step of the image kernel's memory restoration procedure.  Before being executed, it is relocated to a safe page that won't be overwritten while copying the image kernel pages. The final operation performed by it is a jump to the second part of the core restoration code that belongs to the image kernel and has just been restored. This code makes the CPU switch to the image kernel's page tables and restores the state of general purpose registers (including the stack pointer) from before the hibernation. The main issue with this idea is that in order to jump to the second part of the core restoration code the boot kernel needs to know its address.  However, this address may be passed to it in the image header.  Namely, the part of the image header previously used for checking if the version of the image kernel is correct can be replaced with some architecture specific data that will allow the boot kernel to jump to the right address within the image kernel.  These data should also be used for checking if the image kernel is compatible with the boot kernel (as far as the memory restroration procedure is concerned). It can be done, for example, with the help of a "magic" value that has to be equal in both kernels, so that they can be regarded as compatible. Signed-off-by: Rafael J.

2007-10-18serial: turn serial console suspend a boot rather than compile time optionAndres Salomon1-1/+0
Currently, there's a CONFIG_DISABLE_CONSOLE_SUSPEND that allows one to stop the serial console from being suspended when the rest of the machine goes to sleep. This is incredibly useful for debugging power management-related things; however, having it as a compile-time option has proved to be incredibly inconvenient for us (OLPC). There are plenty of times that we want serial console to not suspend, but for the most part we'd like serial console to be suspended. This drops CONFIG_DISABLE_CONSOLE_SUSPEND, and replaces it with a kernel boot parameter (no_console_suspend). By default, the serial console will be suspended along with the rest of the system; by passing 'no_console_suspend' to the kernel during boot, serial console will remain alive during suspend. For now, this is pretty serial console specific; further fixes could be applied to make this work for things like netconsole. Signed-off-by: Andres Salomon <dilinger@debian.org> Acked-by: "Rafael J.

There is no reason why the .prepare() and .finish() methods in 'struct platform_suspend_ops' should take any arguments, since architectures don't use these methods' argument in any practically meaningful way (ie. either the target system sleep state is conveyed to the platform by .set_target(), or there is only one suspend state supported and it is indicated to the PM core by .valid(), or .prepare() and .finish() aren't defined at all).  There also is no reason why .finish() should return any result.

The name of 'struct pm_ops' suggests that it is related to the power management in general, but in fact it is only related to suspend.  Moreover, its name should indicate what this structure is used for, so it seems reasonable to change it to 'struct platform_suspend_ops'.  In that case, the name of the global variable of this type used by the PM core and the names of related functions should be changed accordingly.

Move the definition of 'struct pm_ops' and related functions from <linux/pm.h> to <linux/suspend.h> . There are, at least, the following reasons to do that: * 'struct pm_ops' is specifically related to suspend and not to the power management in general. * As long as 'struct pm_ops' is defined in <linux/pm.h>, any modification of it causes the entire kernel to be recompiled, which is unnecessary and annoying. * Some suspend-related features are already defined in <linux/suspend.h>, so it is logical to move the definition of 'struct pm_ops' into there. * 'struct hibernation_ops', being the hibernation-related counterpart of 'struct pm_ops', is defined in <linux/suspend.h> .
