Pull networking updates from David Miller: 1) Fix inaccuracies in network driver interface documentation, from Ben Hutchings. 2) Fix handling of negative offsets in BPF JITs, from Jan Seiffert. 3) Compile warning, locking, and refcounting fixes in netfilter's xt_CT, from Pablo Neira Ayuso. 4) phonet sendmsg needs to validate user length just like any other datagram protocol, fix from Sasha Levin. 5) Ipv6 multicast code uses wrong loop index, from RongQing Li. 6) Link handling and firmware fixes in bnx2x driver from Yaniv Rosner and Yuval Mintz. 7) mlx4 erroneously allocates 4 pages at a time, regardless of page size, fix from Thadeu Lima de Souza Cascardo. 8) SCTP socket option wasn't extended in a backwards compatible way, fix from Thomas Graf. 9) Add missing address change event emissions to bonding, from Shlomo Pongratz. 10) /proc/net/dev regressed because it uses a private offset to track where we are in the hash table, but this doesn't track the offset pullback that the seq_file code does resulting in some entries being missed in large dumps. Fix from Eric Dumazet. 11) do_tcp_sendpage() unloads the send queue way too fast, because it invokes tcp_push() when it shouldn't. Let the natural sequence generated by the splice paths, and the assosciated MSG_MORE settings, guide the tcp_push() calls. Otherwise what goes out of TCP is spaghetti and doesn't batch effectively into GSO/TSO clusters. From Eric Dumazet. 12) Once we put a SKB into either the netlink receiver's queue or a socket error queue, it can be consumed and freed up, therefore we cannot touch it after queueing it like that. Fixes from Eric Dumazet. 13) PPP has this annoying behavior in that for every transmit call it immediately stops the TX queue, then calls down into the next layer to transmit the PPP frame. But if that next layer can take it immediately, it just un-stops the TX queue right before returning from the transmit method. Besides being useless work, it makes several facilities unusable, in particular things like the equalizers. Well behaved devices should only stop the TX queue when they really are full, and in PPP's case when it gets backlogged to the downstream device. David Woodhouse therefore fixed PPP to not stop the TX queue until it's downstream can't take data any more. 14) IFF_UNICAST_FLT got accidently lost in some recent stmmac driver changes, re-add. From Marc Kleine-Budde. 15) Fix link flaps in ixgbe, from Eric W. Multanen. 16) Descriptor writeback fixes in e1000e from Matthew Vick. * git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/davem/net: (47 commits) net: fix a race in sock_queue_err_skb() netlink: fix races after skb queueing doc, net: Update ndo_start_xmit return type and values doc, net: Remove instruction to set net_device::trans_start doc, net: Update netdev operation names doc, net: Update documentation of synchronisation for TX multiqueue doc, net: Remove obsolete reference to dev->poll ethtool: Remove exception to the requirement of holding RTNL lock MAINTAINERS: update for Marvell Ethernet drivers bonding: properly unset current_arp_slave on slave link up phonet: Check input from user before allocating tcp: tcp_sendpages() should call tcp_push() once ipv6: fix array index in ip6_mc_add_src() mlx4: allocate just enough pages instead of always 4 pages stmmac: re-add IFF_UNICAST_FLT for dwmac1000 bnx2x: Clear MDC/MDIO warning message bnx2x: Fix BCM57711+BCM84823 link issue bnx2x: Clear BCM84833 LED after fan failure bnx2x: Fix BCM84833 PHY FW version presentation bnx2x: Fix link issue for BCM8727 boards. ...

git://git.linaro.org/people/mszyprowski/linux-dma-mapping Pull DMA mapping branch from Marek Szyprowski: "Short summary for the whole series: A few limitations have been identified in the current dma-mapping design and its implementations for various architectures. There exist more than one function for allocating and freeing the buffers: currently these 3 are used dma_{alloc, free}_coherent, dma_{alloc,free}_writecombine, dma_{alloc,free}_noncoherent. For most of the systems these calls are almost equivalent and can be interchanged. For others, especially the truly non-coherent ones (like ARM), the difference can be easily noticed in overall driver performance. Sadly not all architectures provide implementations for all of them, so the drivers might need to be adapted and cannot be easily shared between different architectures. The provided patches unify all these functions and hide the differences under the already existing dma attributes concept. The thread with more references is available here: http://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-sh/msg09777.html These patches are also a prerequisite for unifying DMA-mapping implementation on ARM architecture with the common one provided by dma_map_ops structure and extending it with IOMMU support. More information is available in the following thread: http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel.cross-arch/12819 More works on dma-mapping framework are planned, especially in the area of buffer sharing and managing the shared mappings (together with the recently introduced dma_buf interface: commit d15bd7ee445d "dma-buf: Introduce dma buffer sharing mechanism"). The patches in the current set introduce a new alloc/free methods (with support for memory attributes) in dma_map_ops structure, which will later replace dma_alloc_coherent and dma_alloc_writecombine functions." People finally started piping up with support for merging this, so I'm merging it as the last of the pending stuff from the merge window. Looks like pohmelfs is going to wait for 3.5 and more external support for merging. * 'for-linus' of git://git.linaro.org/people/mszyprowski/linux-dma-mapping: common: DMA-mapping: add NON-CONSISTENT attribute common: DMA-mapping: add WRITE_COMBINE attribute common: dma-mapping: introduce mmap method common: dma-mapping: remove old alloc_coherent and free_coherent methods Hexagon: adapt for dma_map_ops changes Unicore32: adapt for dma_map_ops changes Microblaze: adapt for dma_map_ops changes SH: adapt for dma_map_ops changes Alpha: adapt for dma_map_ops changes SPARC: adapt for dma_map_ops changes PowerPC: adapt for dma_map_ops changes MIPS: adapt for dma_map_ops changes X86 & IA64: adapt for dma_map_ops changes common: dma-mapping: introduce generic alloc() and free() methods

2012-03-30Documentation: replace install commands with softdepsLucas De Marchi3-5/+4
Install commands should not be used to specify soft dependencies among modules. When loading modules it's much better to have a softdep that modprobe knows what's being done than having to fork/exec another instance of modprobe to load the other module. By using a softdep user has also an option to remove the dependencies when removing the module (and if its refcount dropped to 0) Signed-off-by: Lucas De Marchi <lucas.demarchi@profusion.mobi> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

2012-03-30x86: Remove the ancient and deprecated disable_hlt() and enable_hlt() facilityLen Brown1-8/+0
The X86_32-only disable_hlt/enable_hlt mechanism was used by the 32-bit floppy driver. Its effect was to replace the use of the HLT instruction inside default_idle() with cpu_relax() - essentially it turned off the use of HLT. This workaround was commented in the code as: "disable hlt during certain critical i/o operations" "This halt magic was a workaround for ancient floppy DMA wreckage. It should be safe to remove." H. Peter Anvin additionally adds: "To the best of my knowledge, no-hlt only existed because of flaky power distributions on 386/486 systems which were sold to run DOS. Since DOS did no power management of any kind, including HLT, the power draw was fairly uniform; when exposed to the much hhigher noise levels you got when Linux used HLT caused some of these systems to fail. They were by far in the minority even back then." Alan Cox further says: "Also for the Cyrix 5510 which tended to go castors up if a HLT occurred during a DMA cycle and on a few other boxes HLT during DMA tended to go astray. Do we care ? I doubt it. The 5510 was pretty obscure, the 5520 fixed it, the 5530 is probably the oldest still in any kind of use." So, let's finally drop this.

2012-03-30cpuidle: add a sysfs entry to disable specific C state for debug purpose.ShuoX Liu1-0/+5
Some C states of new CPU might be not good. One reason is BIOS might configure them incorrectly. To help developers root cause it quickly, the patch adds a new sysfs entry, so developers could disable specific C state manually. In addition, C state might have much impact on performance tuning, as it takes much time to enter/exit C states, which might delay interrupt processing. With the new debug option, developers could check if a deep C state could impact performance and how much impact it could cause. Also add this option in Documentation/cpuidle/sysfs.txt.

Pull nfsd changes from Bruce Fields: Highlights: - Benny Halevy and Tigran Mkrtchyan implemented some more 4.1 features, moving us closer to a complete 4.1 implementation. - Bernd Schubert fixed a long-standing problem with readdir cookies on ext2/3/4. - Jeff Layton performed a long-overdue overhaul of the server reboot recovery code which will allow us to deprecate the current code (a rather unusual user of the vfs), and give us some needed flexibility for further improvements. - Like the client, we now support numeric uid's and gid's in the auth_sys case, allowing easier upgrades from NFSv2/v3 to v4.x. Plus miscellaneous bugfixes and cleanup. Thanks to everyone! There are also some delegation fixes waiting on vfs review that I suppose will have to wait for 3.5. With that done I think we'll finally turn off the "EXPERIMENTAL" dependency for v4 (though that's mostly symbolic as it's been on by default in distro's for a while). And the list of 4.1 todo's should be achievable for 3.5 as well: http://wiki.linux-nfs.org/wiki/index.php/Server_4.0_and_4.1_issues though we may still want a bit more experience with it before turning it on by default. * 'for-3.4' of git://linux-nfs.org/~bfields/linux: (55 commits) nfsd: only register cld pipe notifier when CONFIG_NFSD_V4 is enabled nfsd4: use auth_unix unconditionally on backchannel nfsd: fix NULL pointer dereference in cld_pipe_downcall nfsd4: memory corruption in numeric_name_to_id() sunrpc: skip portmap calls on sessions backchannel nfsd4: allow numeric idmapping nfsd: don't allow legacy client tracker init for anything but init_net nfsd: add notifier to handle mount/unmount of rpc_pipefs sb nfsd: add the infrastructure to handle the cld upcall nfsd: add a header describing upcall to nfsdcld nfsd: add a per-net-namespace struct for nfsd sunrpc: create nfsd dir in rpc_pipefs nfsd: add nfsd4_client_tracking_ops struct and a way to set it nfsd: convert nfs4_client->cl_cb_flags to a generic flags field NFSD: Fix nfs4_verifier memory alignment NFSD: Fix warnings when NFSD_DEBUG is not defined nfsd: vfs_llseek() with 32 or 64 bit offsets (hashes) nfsd: rename 'int access' to 'int may_flags' in nfsd_open() ext4: return 32/64-bit dir name hash according to usage type fs: add new FMODE flags: FMODE_32bithash and FMODE_64bithash ...
