2010-03-30include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking ↵Tejun Heo1-0/+1
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.

2007-10-12Driver core: change add_uevent_var to use a structKay Sievers1-7/+10
This changes the uevent buffer functions to use a struct instead of a long list of parameters. It does no longer require the caller to do the proper buffer termination and size accounting, which is currently wrong in some places. It fixes a known bug where parts of the uevent environment are overwritten because of wrong index calculations. Many thanks to Mathieu Desnoyers for finding bugs and improving the error handling.

2007-07-11DMI-based module autoloadingLennart Poettering1-0/+222
The patch below adds DMI/SMBIOS based module autoloading to the Linux kernel. The idea is to load laptop drivers automatically (and other drivers which cannot be autoloaded otherwise), based on the DMI system identification information of the BIOS. Right now most distros manually try to load all available laptop drivers on bootup in the hope that at least one of them loads successfully. This patch does away with all that, and uses udev to automatically load matching drivers on the right machines. Basically the patch just exports the DMI information that has been parsed by the kernel anyway to userspace via a sysfs device /sys/class/dmi/id and makes sure that proper modalias attributes are available. Besides adding the "modalias" attribute it also adds attributes for a few other DMI fields which might be useful for writing udev rules. This patch is not an attempt to export the entire DMI/SMBIOS data to userspace. We already have "dmidecode" which parses the complete DMI info from userspace. The purpose of this patch is machine model identification and good udev integration. To take advantage of DMI based module autoloading, a driver should export one or more MODULE_ALIAS fields similar to these: MODULE_ALIAS("dmi:*:svnMICRO-STARINT'LCO.,LTD:pnMS-1013:pvr0131*:cvnMICRO-STARINT'LCO.,LTD:ct10:*"); MODULE_ALIAS("dmi:*:svnMicro-StarInternational:pnMS-1058:pvr0581:rvnMSI:rnMS-1058:*:ct10:*"); MODULE_ALIAS("dmi:*:svnMicro-StarInternational:pnMS-1412:*:rvnMSI:rnMS-1412:*:cvnMICRO-STARINT'LCO.,LTD:ct10:*"); MODULE_ALIAS("dmi:*:svnNOTEBOOK:pnSAM2000:pvr0131*:cvnMICRO-STARINT'LCO.,LTD:ct10:*"); These lines are specific to my msi-laptop.c driver. They are basically just a concatenation of a few carefully selected DMI fields with all potentially bad characters stripped. Besides laptop drivers, modules like "hdaps", the i2c modules and the hwmon modules are good candidates for "dmi:" MODULE_ALIAS lines. Besides merely exporting the DMI data via sysfs the patch adds support for a few more DMI fields. Especially the CHASSIS fields are very useful to identify different laptop modules. The patch also adds working MODULE_ALIAS lines to my msi-laptop.c driver. I'd like to thank Kay Sievers for helping me to clean up this patch for posting it on lkml. Patch is against Linus' current GIT HEAD. Should probably apply to older kernels as well without modification.
