+What: /sys/firmware/efi/vars
+Date: April 2004
+Contact: Matt Domsch <Matt_Domsch@dell.com>
+Description:
+ This directory exposes interfaces for interactive with
+ EFI variables. For more information on EFI variables,
+ see 'Variable Services' in the UEFI specification
+ (section 7.2 in specification version 2.3 Errata D).
+
+ In summary, EFI variables are named, and are classified
+ into separate namespaces through the use of a vendor
+ GUID. They also have an arbitrary binary value
+ associated with them.
+
+ The efivars module enumerates these variables and
+ creates a separate directory for each one found. Each
+ directory has a name of the form "<key>-<vendor guid>"
+ and contains the following files:
+
+ attributes: A read-only text file enumerating the
+ EFI variable flags. Potential values
+ include:
+
+ EFI_VARIABLE_NON_VOLATILE
+ EFI_VARIABLE_BOOTSERVICE_ACCESS
+ EFI_VARIABLE_RUNTIME_ACCESS
+ EFI_VARIABLE_HARDWARE_ERROR_RECORD
+ EFI_VARIABLE_AUTHENTICATED_WRITE_ACCESS
+
+ See the EFI documentation for an
+ explanation of each of these variables.
+
+ data: A read-only binary file that can be read
+ to attain the value of the EFI variable
+
+ guid: The vendor GUID of the variable. This
+ should always match the GUID in the
+ variable's name.
+
+ raw_var: A binary file that can be read to obtain
+ a structure that contains everything
+ there is to know about the variable.
+ For structure definition see "struct
+ efi_variable" in the kernel sources.
+
+ This file can also be written to in
+ order to update the value of a variable.
+ For this to work however, all fields of
+ the "struct efi_variable" passed must
+ match byte for byte with the structure
+ read out of the file, save for the value
+ portion.
+
+ **Note** the efi_variable structure
+ read/written with this file contains a
+ 'long' type that may change widths
+ depending on your underlying
+ architecture.
+
+ size: As ASCII representation of the size of
+ the variable's value.
+
+
+ In addition, two other magic binary files are provided
+ in the top-level directory and are used for adding and
+ removing variables:
+
+ new_var: Takes a "struct efi_variable" and
+ instructs the EFI firmware to create a
+ new variable.
+
+ del_var: Takes a "struct efi_variable" and
+ instructs the EFI firmware to remove any
+ variable that has a matching vendor GUID
+ and variable key name.

+Description: Generic interface to platform dependent persistent storage.
+
+ Platforms that provide a mechanism to preserve some data
+ across system reboots can register with this driver to
+ provide a generic interface to show records captured in
+ the dying moments. In the case of a panic the last part
+ of the console log is captured, but other interesting
+ data can also be saved.
+
+ # mount -t pstore - /dev/pstore
+
+ $ ls -l /dev/pstore
+ total 0
+ -r--r--r-- 1 root root 7896 Nov 30 15:38 dmesg-erst-1
+
+ Different users of this interface will result in different
+ filename prefixes. Currently two are defined:
+
+ "dmesg" - saved console log
+ "mce" - architecture dependent data from fatal h/w error
+
+ Once the information in a file has been read, removing
+ the file will signal to the underlying persistent storage
+ device that it can reclaim the space for later re-use.
+
+ $ rm /dev/pstore/dmesg-erst-1
+
+ The expectation is that all files in /dev/pstore
+ will be saved elsewhere and erased from persistent store
+ soon after boot to free up space ready for the next
+ catastrophe.

+Date: February 2011

+Description:
+ Many machines' firmware (x86 and ia64) export DMI /
+ SMBIOS tables to the operating system. Getting at this
+ information is often valuable to userland, especially in
+ cases where there are OEM extensions used.
+
+ The kernel itself does not rely on the majority of the
+ information in these tables being correct. It equally
+ cannot ensure that the data as exported to userland is
+ without error either.
+
+ DMI is structured as a large table of entries, where
+ each entry has a common header indicating the type and
+ length of the entry, as well as 'handle' that is
+ supposed to be unique amongst all entries.
+
+ Some entries are required by the specification, but many
+ others are optional. In general though, users should
+ never expect to find a specific entry type on their
+ system unless they know for certain what their firmware
+ is doing. Machine to machine will vary.
+
+ Multiple entries of the same type are allowed. In order
+ to handle these duplicate entry types, each entry is
+ assigned by the operating system an 'instance', which is
+ derived from an entry type's ordinal position. That is
+ to say, if there are 'N' multiple entries with the same type
+ 'T' in the DMI tables (adjacent or spread apart, it
+ doesn't matter), they will be represented in sysfs as
+ entries "T-0" through "T-(N-1)":
+
+ Example entry directories:
+
+ /sys/firmware/dmi/entries/17-0
+ /sys/firmware/dmi/entries/17-1
+ /sys/firmware/dmi/entries/17-2
+ /sys/firmware/dmi/entries/17-3
+ ...
+
+ Instance numbers are used in lieu of the firmware
+ assigned entry handles as the kernel itself makes no
+ guarantees that handles as exported are unique, and
+ there are likely firmware images that get this wrong in
+ the wild.
+
+ Each DMI entry in sysfs has the common header values
+ exported as attributes:
+
+ handle : The 16bit 'handle' that is assigned to this
+ entry by the firmware. This handle may be

+This is achieved by the mask ROM loading the first portion of the image into

-The driver only implements a four-wire touch panel protocol.
-
-The touchscreen driver is maintenance free except for the pen-down or
-touch threshold. Some resistive displays and board combinations may

-README on the Compact Flash for Card Engines
-============================================
-
-There are three challenges in supporting the CF interface of the Card
-Engines. First, every IO operation must be followed with IO to
-another memory region. Second, the slot is wired for one-to-one
-address mapping *and* it is wired for 16 bit access only. Second, the
-interrupt request line from the CF device isn't wired.
-
-The IOBARRIER issue is covered in README.IOBARRIER. This isn't an
-onerous problem. Enough said here.
-
-The addressing issue is solved in the
-arch/arm/mach-lh7a40x/ide-lpd7a40x.c file with some awkward
-work-arounds. We implement a special SELECT_DRIVE routine that is
-called before the IDE driver performs its own SELECT_DRIVE. Our code
-recognizes that the SELECT register cannot be modified without also
-writing a command. It send an IDLE_IMMEDIATE command on selecting a
-drive. The function also prevents drive select to the slave drive
-since there can be only one. The awkward part is that the IDE driver,
-even though we have a select procedure, also attempts to change the
-drive by writing directly the SELECT register. This attempt is
-explicitly blocked by the OUTB function--not pretty, but effective.
-
-The lack of interrupts is a more serious problem. Even though the CF
-card is fast when compared to a normal IDE device, we don't know that
-the CF is really flash. A user could use one of the very small hard
-drives being shipped with a CF interface. The IDE code includes a
-check for interfaces that lack an IRQ. In these cases, submitting a
-command to the IDE controller is followed by a call to poll for
-completion. If the device isn't immediately ready, it schedules a
-timer to poll again later.

-README on the IOBARRIER for CardEngine IO
-=========================================
-
-Due to an unfortunate oversight when the Card Engines were designed,
-the signals that control access to some peripherals, most notably the
-SMC91C9111 ethernet controller, are not properly handled.
-
-The symptom is that some back to back IO with the peripheral returns
-unreliable data. With the SMC chip, you'll see errors about the bank
-register being 'screwed'.
-
-The cause is that the AEN signal to the SMC chip does not transition
-for every memory access. It is driven through the CPLD from the CS7
-line of the CPU's static memory controller which is optimized to
-eliminate unnecessary transitions. Yet, the SMC requires a transition
-for every write access. The Sharp website has more information about
-the effect this power-conserving feature has on peripheral
-interfacing.
-
-The solution is to follow every write access to the SMC chip with an
-access to another memory region that will force the CPU to release the
-chip select line. It is important to guarantee that this access
-forces the CPU off-chip. We map a page of SDRAM as if it were an
-uncacheable IO device and read from it after every SMC IO write
-operation.
-
- SMC IO
- BARRIER IO
-
-Only this sequence is important. It does not matter that there is no
-BARRIER IO before the access to the SMC chip because the AEN latch
-only needs occurs after the SMC IO write cycle. The routines that
-implement this work-around make an additional concession which is to
-disable interrupts during the IO sequence. Other hardware devices
-(the LogicPD CPLD) have registers in the same physical memory
-region as the SMC chip. An interrupt might allow an access to one of
-those registers while SMC IO is being performed.
-
-You might be tempted to think that we have to access another device
-attached to the static memory controller, but the empirical evidence
-indicates that this is not so. Mapping 0x00000000 (flash) and
-0xc0000000 (SDRAM) appear to have the same effect. Using SDRAM seems
-to be faster. Choosing to access an undecoded memory region is not
-desirable as there is no way to know how that chip select will be used
-in the future.

-========================
-

-adding support for other panels if you wish.
-
-
-lcd-panels.h
-------------
-
-There is no way, at present, to detect which panel is attached to the
-system at runtime. Thus the kernel configuration is static. The file
-arch/arm/mach-ld7a40x/lcd-panels.h (or similar) defines all of the
-panel specific parameters.
-
-It should be possible for this data to be shared among several device
-families. The current layout may be insufficiently general, but it is
-amenable to improvement.
-
-
-PIXEL_CLOCK
------------

-The panel data sheets will give a range of acceptable pixel clocks.
-The fundamental LCDCLK input frequency is divided down by a PCD
-constant in field '.tim2'. It may happen that it is impossible to set
-the pixel clock within this range. A clock which is too slow will
-tend to flicker. For the highest quality image, set the clock as high
-as possible.

-MARGINS
--------
-
-These values may be difficult to glean from the panel data sheet. In
-the case of the Sharp panels, the upper margin is explicitly called
-out as a specific number of lines from the top of the frame. The
-other values may not matter as much as the panels tend to
-automatically center the image.
-
-
-Sync Sense
-----------
-
-The sense of the hsync and vsync pulses may be called out in the data
-sheet. On one panel, the sense of these pulses determine the height
-of the visible region on the panel. Most of the Sharp panels use
-negative sense sync pulses set by the TIM2_IHS and TIM2_IVS bits in
-'.tim2'.
-
-
-Pel Layout
-----------
-
-The Sharp color TFT panels are all configured for 16 bit direct color
-modes. The amba-lcd driver sets the pel mode to 565 for 5 bits of
-each red and blue and 6 bits of green.

-README on the SDRAM Controller for the LH7a40X
-==============================================
-
-The standard configuration for the SDRAM controller generates a sparse
-memory array. The precise layout is determined by the SDRAM chips. A
-default kernel configuration assembles the discontiguous memory
-regions into separate memory nodes via the NUMA (Non-Uniform Memory
-Architecture) facilities. In this default configuration, the kernel
-is forgiving about the precise layout. As long as it is given an
-accurate picture of available memory by the bootloader the kernel will
-execute correctly.
-
-The SDRC supports a mode where some of the chip select lines are
-swapped in order to make SDRAM look like a synchronous ROM. Setting
-this bit means that the RAM will present as a contiguous array. Some
-programmers prefer this to the discontiguous layout. Be aware that
-may be a penalty for this feature where some some configurations of
-memory are significantly reduced; i.e. 64MiB of RAM appears as only 32
-MiB.
-
-There are a couple of configuration options to override the default
-behavior. When the SROMLL bit is set and memory appears as a
-contiguous array, there is no reason to support NUMA.
-CONFIG_LH7A40X_CONTIGMEM disables NUMA support. When physical memory
-is discontiguous, the memory tables are organized such that there are
-two banks per nodes with a small gap between them. This layout wastes
-some kernel memory for page tables representing non-existent memory.
-CONFIG_LH7A40X_ONE_BANK_PER_NODE optimizes the node tables such that
-there are no gaps. These options control the low level organization
-of the memory management tables in ways that may prevent the kernel
-from booting or may cause the kernel to allocated excessively large
-page tables. Be warned. Only change these options if you know what
-you are doing. The default behavior is a reasonable compromise that
-will suit all users.
-
---
-
-A typical 32MiB system with the default configuration options will
-find physical memory managed as follows.
-
- node 0: 0xc0000000 4MiB
- 0xc1000000 4MiB
- node 1: 0xc4000000 4MiB
- 0xc5000000 4MiB
- node 2: 0xc8000000 4MiB
- 0xc9000000 4MiB
- node 3: 0xcc000000 4MiB
- 0xcd000000 4MiB
-
-Setting CONFIG_LH7A40X_ONE_BANK_PER_NODE will put each bank into a
-separate node.

-README on the Vectored Interrupt Controller of the LH7A404
-==========================================================
-
-The 404 revision of the LH7A40X series comes with two vectored
-interrupts controllers. While the kernel does use some of the
-features of these devices, it is far from the purpose for which they
-were designed.
-
-When this README was written, the implementation of the VICs was in
-flux. It is possible that some details, especially with priorities,
-will change.
-
-The VIC support code is inspired by routines written by Sharp.
-
-
-Priority Control
-----------------
-
-The significant reason for using the VIC's vectoring is to control
-interrupt priorities. There are two tables in
-arch/arm/mach-lh7a40x/irq-lh7a404.c that look something like this.
-
- static unsigned char irq_pri_vic1[] = { IRQ_GPIO3INTR, };
- static unsigned char irq_pri_vic2[] = {
- IRQ_T3UI, IRQ_GPIO7INTR,
- IRQ_UART1INTR, IRQ_UART2INTR, IRQ_UART3INTR, };
-
-The initialization code reads these tables and inserts a vector
-address and enable for each indicated IRQ. Vectored interrupts have
-higher priority than non-vectored interrupts. So, on VIC1,
-IRQ_GPIO3INTR will be served before any other non-FIQ interrupt. Due
-to the way that the vectoring works, IRQ_T3UI is the next highest
-priority followed by the other vectored interrupts on VIC2. After
-that, the non-vectored interrupts are scanned in VIC1 then in VIC2.
-
-
-ISR
----
-
-The interrupt service routine macro get_irqnr() in
-arch/arm/kernel/entry-armv.S scans the VICs for the next active
-interrupt. The vectoring makes this code somewhat larger than it was
-before using vectoring (refer to the LH7A400 implementation). In the
-case where an interrupt is vectored, the implementation will tend to
-be faster than the non-vectored version. However, the worst-case path
-is longer.
-
-It is worth noting that at present, there is no need to read
-VIC2_VECTADDR because the register appears to be shared between the
-controllers. The code is written such that if this changes, it ought
-to still work properly.
-
-
-Vector Addresses
-----------------
-
-The proper use of the vectoring hardware would jump to the ISR
-specified by the vectoring address. Linux isn't structured to take
-advantage of this feature, though it might be possible to change
-things to support it.
-
-In this implementation, the vectoring address is used to speed the
-search for the active IRQ. The address is coded such that the lowest
-6 bits store the IRQ number for vectored interrupts. These numbers
-correspond to the bits in the interrupt status registers. IRQ zero is
-the lowest interrupt bit in VIC1. IRQ 32 is the lowest interrupt bit
-in VIC2. Because zero is a valid IRQ number and because we cannot
-detect whether or not there is a valid vectoring address if that
-address is zero, the eigth bit (0x100) is set for vectored interrupts.
-The address for IRQ 0x18 (VIC2) is 0x118. Only the ninth bit is set
-for the default handler on VIC1 and only the tenth bit is set for the
-default handler on VIC2.
-
-In other words.
-
- 0x000 - no active interrupt
- 0x1ii - vectored interrupt 0xii
- 0x2xx - unvectored interrupt on VIC1 (xx is don't care)
- 0x4xx - unvectored interrupt on VIC2 (xx is don't care)

+CE4100 I2C
+----------
+
+CE4100 has one PCI device which is described as the I2C-Controller. This
+PCI device has three PCI-bars, each bar contains a complete I2C
+controller. So we have a total of three independent I2C-Controllers
+which share only an interrupt line.
+The driver is probed via the PCI-ID and is gathering the information of
+attached devices from the devices tree.
+Grant Likely recommended to use the ranges property to map the PCI-Bar
+number to its physical address and to use this to find the child nodes
+of the specific I2C controller. This were his exact words:
+
+ Here's where the magic happens. Each entry in
+ ranges describes how the parent pci address space
+ (middle group of 3) is translated to the local
+ address space (first group of 2) and the size of
+ each range (last cell). In this particular case,
+ the first cell of the local address is chosen to be
+ 1:1 mapped to the BARs, and the second is the
+ offset from be base of the BAR (which would be
+ non-zero if you had 2 or more devices mapped off
+ the same BAR)
+
+ ranges allows the address mapping to be described
+ in a way that the OS can interpret without
+ requiring custom device driver code.
+
+This is an example which is used on FalconFalls:

+* Freescale PQ3 and QorIQ based Cache SRAM
+
+Freescale's mpc85xx and some QorIQ platforms provide an
+option of configuring a part of (or full) cache memory
+as SRAM. This cache SRAM representation in the device
+tree should be done as under:-
+
+Required properties:
+
+- compatible : should be "fsl,p2020-cache-sram"
+- fsl,cache-sram-ctlr-handle : points to the L2 controller
+- reg : offset and length of the cache-sram.
+
+Example:
+
+cache-sram@fff00000 {
+ fsl,cache-sram-ctlr-handle = <&L2>;
+ reg = <0 0xfff00000 0 0x10000>;
+ compatible = "fsl,p2020-cache-sram";
+};

+=====================================================================
+Freescale MPIC Interrupt Controller Node
+Copyright (C) 2010,2011 Freescale Semiconductor Inc.
+=====================================================================
+
+The Freescale MPIC interrupt controller is found on all PowerQUICC
+and QorIQ processors and is compatible with the Open PIC. The
+notable difference from Open PIC binding is the addition of 2
+additional cells in the interrupt specifier defining interrupt type
+information.
+
+PROPERTIES
+
+ - compatible
+ Usage: required
+ Value type: <string>
+ Definition: Shall include "fsl,mpic". Freescale MPIC
+ controllers compatible with this binding have Block
+ Revision Registers BRR1 and BRR2 at offset 0x0 and
+ 0x10 in the MPIC.
+
+ - reg
+ Usage: required
+ Value type: <prop-encoded-array>
+ Definition: A standard property. Specifies the physical
+ offset and length of the device's registers within the
+ CCSR address space.
+
+ - interrupt-controller
+ Usage: required
+ Value type: <empty>
+ Definition: Specifies that this node is an interrupt
+ controller
+
+ - #interrupt-cells
+ Usage: required
+ Value type: <u32>
+ Definition: Shall be 2 or 4. A value of 2 means that interrupt
+ specifiers do not contain the interrupt-type or type-specific
+ information cells.
+
+ - #address-cells
+ Usage: required
+ Value type: <u32>
+ Definition: Shall be 0.
+
+ - pic-no-reset
+ Usage: optional
+ Value type: <empty>
+ Definition: The presence of this property specifies that the
+ MPIC must not be reset by the client program, and that
+ the boot program has initialized all interrupt source
+ configuration registers to a sane state-- masked or
+ directed at other cores. This ensures that the client
+ program will not receive interrupts for sources not belonging
+ to the client. The presence of this property also mandates
+ that any initialization related to interrupt sources shall
+ be limited to sources explicitly referenced in the device tree.
+
+INTERRUPT SPECIFIER DEFINITION
+
+ Interrupt specifiers consists of 4 cells encoded as
+ follows:
+
+ <1st-cell> interrupt-number
+
+ Identifies the interrupt source. The meaning
+ depends on the type of interrupt.
+
+ Note: If the interrupt-type cell is undefined
+ (i.e. #interrupt-cells = 2), this cell
+ should be interpreted the same as for
+ interrupt-type 0-- i.e. an external or
+ normal SoC device interrupt.
+
+ <2nd-cell> level-sense information, encoded as follows:
+ 0 = low-to-high edge triggered
+ 1 = active low level-sensitive
+ 2 = active high level-sensitive
+ 3 = high-to-low edge triggered
+
+ <3rd-cell> interrupt-type
+
+ The following types are supported:
+
+ 0 = external or normal SoC device interrupt
+
+ The interrupt-number cell contains
+ the SoC device interrupt number. The
+ type-specific cell is undefined. The
+ interrupt-number is derived from the
+ MPIC a block of registers referred to as
+ the "Interrupt Source Configuration Registers".
+ Each source has 32-bytes of registers
+ (vector/priority and destination) in this
+ region. So interrupt 0 is at offset 0x0,
+ interrupt 1 is at offset 0x20, and so on.
+
+ 1 = error interrupt
+
+ The interrupt-number cell contains
+ the SoC device interrupt number for
+ the error interrupt. The type-specific
+ cell identifies the specific error
+ interrupt number.
+
+ 2 = MPIC inter-processor interrupt (IPI)
+
+ The interrupt-number cell identifies
+ the MPIC IPI number. The type-specific
+ cell is undefined.
+
+ 3 = MPIC timer interrupt
+
+ The interrupt-number cell identifies
+ the MPIC timer number. The type-specific
+ cell is undefined.
+
+ <4th-cell> type-specific information
+
+ The type-specific cell is encoded as follows:
+
+ - For interrupt-type 1 (error interrupt),
+ the type-specific cell contains the
+ bit number of the error interrupt in the
+ Error Interrupt Summary Register.
+
+EXAMPLE 1
+ /*
+ * mpic interrupt controller with 4 cells per specifier
+ */
+ mpic: pic@40000 {

+Description
+-----------
+
+This driver supports various Lineage Compact Power Line DC/DC and AC/DC
+converters such as CP1800, CP2000AC, CP2000DC, CP2100DC, and others.
+
+Lineage CPL power entry modules are nominally PMBus compliant. However, most
+standard PMBus commands are not supported. Specifically, all hardware monitoring
+and status reporting commands are non-standard. For this reason, a standard
+PMBus driver can not be used.
+
+
+Usage Notes
+-----------
+
+This driver does not probe for Lineage CPL devices, since there is no register
+which can be safely used to identify the chip. You will have to instantiate
+the devices explicitly.
+
+Example: the following will load the driver for a Lineage PEM at address 0x40
+on I2C bus #1:
+$ modprobe lineage-pem
+$ echo lineage-pem 0x40 > /sys/bus/i2c/devices/i2c-1/new_device
+
+All Lineage CPL power entry modules have a built-in I2C bus master selector
+(PCA9541). To ensure device access, this driver should only be used as client
+driver to the pca9541 I2C master selector driver.
+
+
+Sysfs entries
+-------------
+
+All Lineage CPL devices report output voltage and device temperature as well as
+alarms for output voltage, temperature, input voltage, input current, input power,
+and fan status.
+
+Input voltage, input current, input power, and fan speed measurement is only
+supported on newer devices. The driver detects if those attributes are supported,
+and only creates respective sysfs entries if they are.

+Description
+-----------
+
+This driver supports hardware montoring for various PMBus compliant devices.
+It supports voltage, current, power, and temperature sensors as supported
+by the device.
+
+Each monitored channel has its own high and low limits, plus a critical
+limit.
+
+Fan support will be added in a later version of this driver.
+
+
+Usage Notes
+-----------
+
+This driver does not probe for PMBus devices, since there is no register
+which can be safely used to identify the chip (The MFG_ID register is not
+supported by all chips), and since there is no well defined address range for
+PMBus devices. You will have to instantiate the devices explicitly.
+
+Example: the following will load the driver for an LTC2978 at address 0x60
+on I2C bus #1:
+$ modprobe pmbus
+$ echo ltc2978 0x60 > /sys/bus/i2c/devices/i2c-1/new_device
+
+
+Platform data support
+---------------------
+
+Support for additional PMBus chips can be added by defining chip parameters in
+a new chip specific driver file. For example, (untested) code to add support for
+Emerson DS1200 power modules might look as follows.
+
+static struct pmbus_driver_info ds1200_info = {
+ .pages = 1,
+ /* Note: All other sensors are in linear mode */

+ .direct[PSC_CURRENT_OUT] = true,
+ .m[PSC_VOLTAGE_IN] = 1,
+ .b[PSC_VOLTAGE_IN] = 0,
+ .R[PSC_VOLTAGE_IN] = 3,
+ .m[PSC_VOLTAGE_OUT] = 1,
+ .b[PSC_VOLTAGE_OUT] = 0,
+ .R[PSC_VOLTAGE_OUT] = 3,
+ .m[PSC_TEMPERATURE] = 1,
+ .b[PSC_TEMPERATURE] = 0,
+ .R[PSC_TEMPERATURE] = 3,
+ .func[0] = PMBUS_HAVE_VIN | PMBUS_HAVE_IIN | PMBUS_HAVE_STATUS_INPUT

+ | PMBUS_HAVE_PIN | PMBUS_HAVE_POUT
+ | PMBUS_HAVE_TEMP | PMBUS_HAVE_STATUS_TEMP
+ | PMBUS_HAVE_FAN12 | PMBUS_HAVE_STATUS_FAN12,
+};
+
+static int ds1200_probe(struct i2c_client *client,
+ const struct i2c_device_id *id)
+{
+ return pmbus_do_probe(client, id, &ds1200_info);
+}
+
+static int ds1200_remove(struct i2c_client *client)
+{
+ return pmbus_do_remove(client);
+}

+ {"ds1200", 0},
+ {}
+};
+
+MODULE_DEVICE_TABLE(i2c, ds1200_id);
+
+/* This is the driver that will be inserted */
+static struct i2c_driver ds1200_driver = {
+ .driver = {
+ .name = "ds1200",
+ },
+ .probe = ds1200_probe,
+ .remove = ds1200_remove,
+ .id_table = ds1200_id,
+};
+
+static int __init ds1200_init(void)
+{
+ return i2c_add_driver(&ds1200_driver);
+}
+
+static void __exit ds1200_exit(void)
+{
+ i2c_del_driver(&ds1200_driver);
+}
+
+
+Sysfs entries
+-------------
+
+When probing the chip, the driver identifies which PMBus registers are
+supported, and determines available sensors from this information.
+Attribute files only exist if respective sensors are suported by the chip.
+Labels are provided to inform the user about the sensor associated with
+a given sysfs entry.

+Hardware Spinlock Framework
+
+1. Introduction
+
+Hardware spinlock modules provide hardware assistance for synchronization
+and mutual exclusion between heterogeneous processors and those not operating
+under a single, shared operating system.
+
+For example, OMAP4 has dual Cortex-A9, dual Cortex-M3 and a C64x+ DSP,
+each of which is running a different Operating System (the master, A9,
+is usually running Linux and the slave processors, the M3 and the DSP,
+are running some flavor of RTOS).
+
+A generic hwspinlock framework allows platform-independent drivers to use
+the hwspinlock device in order to access data structures that are shared
+between remote processors, that otherwise have no alternative mechanism
+to accomplish synchronization and mutual exclusion operations.
+
+This is necessary, for example, for Inter-processor communications:
+on OMAP4, cpu-intensive multimedia tasks are offloaded by the host to the
+remote M3 and/or C64x+ slave processors (by an IPC subsystem called Syslink).
+
+To achieve fast message-based communications, a minimal kernel support
+is needed to deliver messages arriving from a remote processor to the
+appropriate user process.
+
+This communication is based on simple data structures that is shared between
+the remote processors, and access to it is synchronized using the hwspinlock
+module (remote processor directly places new messages in this shared data
+structure).
+
+A common hwspinlock interface makes it possible to have generic, platform-
+independent, drivers.
+
+2. User API
+
+ struct hwspinlock *hwspin_lock_request(void);
+ - dynamically assign an hwspinlock and return its address, or NULL
+ in case an unused hwspinlock isn't available. Users of this
+ API will usually want to communicate the lock's id to the remote core
+ before it can be used to achieve synchronization.
+ Can be called from an atomic context (this function will not sleep) but
+ not from within interrupt context.
+
+ struct hwspinlock *hwspin_lock_request_specific(unsigned int id);
+ - assign a specific hwspinlock id and return its address, or NULL
+ if that hwspinlock is already in use. Usually board code will
+ be calling this function in order to reserve specific hwspinlock
+ ids for predefined purposes.
+ Can be called from an atomic context (this function will not sleep) but
+ not from within interrupt context.
+
+ int hwspin_lock_free(struct hwspinlock *hwlock);
+ - free a previously-assigned hwspinlock; returns 0 on success, or an
+ appropriate error code on failure (e.g. -EINVAL if the hwspinlock
+ is already free).
+ Can be called from an atomic context (this function will not sleep) but
+ not from within interrupt context.
+
+ int hwspin_lock_timeout(struct hwspinlock *hwlock, unsigned int timeout);
+ - lock a previously-assigned hwspinlock with a timeout limit (specified in
+ msecs). If the hwspinlock is already taken, the function will busy loop
+ waiting for it to be released, but give up when the timeout elapses.
+ Upon a successful return from this function, preemption is disabled so
+ the caller must not sleep, and is advised to release the hwspinlock as
+ soon as possible, in order to minimize remote cores polling on the
+ hardware interconnect.
+ Returns 0 when successful and an appropriate error code otherwise (most
+ notably -ETIMEDOUT if the hwspinlock is still busy after timeout msecs).
+ The function will never sleep.
+
+ int hwspin_lock_timeout_irq(struct hwspinlock *hwlock, unsigned int timeout);
+ - lock a previously-assigned hwspinlock with a timeout limit (specified in
+ msecs). If the hwspinlock is already taken, the function will busy loop
+ waiting for it to be released, but give up when the timeout elapses.
+ Upon a successful return from this function, preemption and the local
+ interrupts are disabled, so the caller must not sleep, and is advised to
+ release the hwspinlock as soon as possible.
+ Returns 0 when successful and an appropriate error code otherwise (most
+ notably -ETIMEDOUT if the hwspinlock is still busy after timeout msecs).
+ The function will never sleep.
+
+ int hwspin_lock_timeout_irqsave(struct hwspinlock *hwlock, unsigned int to,
+ unsigned long *flags);
+ - lock a previously-assigned hwspinlock with a timeout limit (specified in
+ msecs). If the hwspinlock is already taken, the function will busy loop
+ waiting for it to be released, but give up when the timeout elapses.
+ Upon a successful return from this function, preemption is disabled,
+ local interrupts are disabled and their previous state is saved at the
+ given flags placeholder. The caller must not sleep, and is advised to
+ release the hwspinlock as soon as possible.
+ Returns 0 when successful and an appropriate error code otherwise (most
+ notably -ETIMEDOUT if the hwspinlock is still busy after timeout msecs).
+ The function will never sleep.
+
+ int hwspin_trylock(struct hwspinlock *hwlock);
+ - attempt to lock a previously-assigned hwspinlock, but immediately fail if
+ it is already taken.
+ Upon a successful return from this function, preemption is disabled so
+ caller must not sleep, and is advised to release the hwspinlock as soon as
+ possible, in order to minimize remote cores polling on the hardware
+ interconnect.
+ Returns 0 on success and an appropriate error code otherwise (most
+ notably -EBUSY if the hwspinlock was already taken).
+ The function will never sleep.
+
+ int hwspin_trylock_irq(struct hwspinlock *hwlock);
+ - attempt to lock a previously-assigned hwspinlock, but immediately fail if
+ it is already taken.
+ Upon a successful return from this function, preemption and the local
+ interrupts are disabled so caller must not sleep, and is advised to
+ release the hwspinlock as soon as possible.
+ Returns 0 on success and an appropriate error code otherwise (most
+ notably -EBUSY if the hwspinlock was already taken).
+ The function will never sleep.
+
+ int hwspin_trylock_irqsave(struct hwspinlock *hwlock, unsigned long *flags);
+ - attempt to lock a previously-assigned hwspinlock, but immediately fail if
+ it is already taken.
+ Upon a successful return from this function, preemption is disabled,
+ the local interrupts are disabled and their previous state is saved
+ at the given flags placeholder. The caller must not sleep, and is advised
+ to release the hwspinlock as soon as possible.
+ Returns 0 on success and an appropriate error code otherwise (most
+ notably -EBUSY if the hwspinlock was already taken).
+ The function will never sleep.
+
+ void hwspin_unlock(struct hwspinlock *hwlock);
+ - unlock a previously-locked hwspinlock. Always succeed, and can be called
+ from any context (the function never sleeps). Note: code should _never_
+ unlock an hwspinlock which is already unlocked (there is no protection
+ against this).
+
+ void hwspin_unlock_irq(struct hwspinlock *hwlock);
+ - unlock a previously-locked hwspinlock and enable local interrupts.
+ The caller should _never_ unlock an hwspinlock which is already unlocked.
+ Doing so is considered a bug (there is no protection against this).
+ Upon a successful return from this function, preemption and local
+ interrupts are enabled. This function will never sleep.
+
+ void
+ hwspin_unlock_irqrestore(struct hwspinlock *hwlock, unsigned long *flags);
+ - unlock a previously-locked hwspinlock.
+ The caller should _never_ unlock an hwspinlock which is already unlocked.
+ Doing so is considered a bug (there is no protection against this).
+ Upon a successful return from this function, preemption is reenabled,
+ and the state of the local interrupts is restored to the state saved at
+ the given flags. This function will never sleep.
+
+ int hwspin_lock_get_id(struct hwspinlock *hwlock);
+ - retrieve id number of a given hwspinlock. This is needed when an
+ hwspinlock is dynamically assigned: before it can be used to achieve
+ mutual exclusion with a remote cpu, the id number should be communicated
+ to the remote task with which we want to synchronize.
+ Returns the hwspinlock id number, or -EINVAL if hwlock is null.

+4. API for implementors
+
+ int hwspin_lock_register(struct hwspinlock *hwlock);
+ - to be called from the underlying platform-specific implementation, in
+ order to register a new hwspinlock instance. Can be called from an atomic
+ context (this function will not sleep) but not from within interrupt
+ context. Returns 0 on success, or appropriate error code on failure.
+
+ struct hwspinlock *hwspin_lock_unregister(unsigned int id);
+ - to be called from the underlying vendor-specific implementation, in order
+ to unregister an existing (and unused) hwspinlock instance.
+ Can be called from an atomic context (will not sleep) but not from
+ within interrupt context.
+ Returns the address of hwspinlock on success, or NULL on error (e.g.
+ if the hwspinlock is sill in use).
+
+5. struct hwspinlock
+
+This struct represents an hwspinlock instance. It is registered by the
+underlying hwspinlock implementation using the hwspin_lock_register() API.
+
+/**
+ * struct hwspinlock - vendor-specific hwspinlock implementation
+ *
+ * @dev: underlying device, will be used with runtime PM api
+ * @ops: vendor-specific hwspinlock handlers
+ * @id: a global, unique, system-wide, index of the lock.
+ * @lock: initialized and used by hwspinlock core
+ * @owner: underlying implementation module, used to maintain module ref count
+ */
+struct hwspinlock {
+ struct device *dev;
+ const struct hwspinlock_ops *ops;
+ int id;
+ spinlock_t lock;
+ struct module *owner;
+};
+
+The underlying implementation is responsible to assign the dev, ops, id and
+owner members. The lock member, OTOH, is initialized and used by the hwspinlock
+core.
+
+6. Implementation callbacks
+
+There are three possible callbacks defined in 'struct hwspinlock_ops':
+
+struct hwspinlock_ops {
+ int (*trylock)(struct hwspinlock *lock);
+ void (*unlock)(struct hwspinlock *lock);
+ void (*relax)(struct hwspinlock *lock);
+};
+
+The first two callbacks are mandatory:
+
+The ->trylock() callback should make a single attempt to take the lock, and
+return 0 on failure and 1 on success. This callback may _not_ sleep.
+
+The ->unlock() callback releases the lock. It always succeed, and it, too,
+may _not_ sleep.
+
+The ->relax() callback is optional. It is called by hwspinlock core while
+spinning on a lock, and can be used by the underlying implementation to force
+a delay between two successive invocations of ->trylock(). It may _not_ sleep.

+TRANSITIVITY
+------------
+
+Transitivity is a deeply intuitive notion about ordering that is not
+always provided by real computer systems. The following example
+demonstrates transitivity (also called "cumulativity"):
+
+ CPU 1 CPU 2 CPU 3
+ ======================= ======================= =======================
+ { X = 0, Y = 0 }
+ STORE X=1 LOAD X STORE Y=1
+ <general barrier> <general barrier>
+ LOAD Y LOAD X
+
+Suppose that CPU 2's load from X returns 1 and its load from Y returns 0.
+This indicates that CPU 2's load from X in some sense follows CPU 1's
+store to X and that CPU 2's load from Y in some sense preceded CPU 3's
+store to Y. The question is then "Can CPU 3's load from X return 0?"
+
+Because CPU 2's load from X in some sense came after CPU 1's store, it
+is natural to expect that CPU 3's load from X must therefore return 1.
+This expectation is an example of transitivity: if a load executing on
+CPU A follows a load from the same variable executing on CPU B, then
+CPU A's load must either return the same value that CPU B's load did,
+or must return some later value.
+
+In the Linux kernel, use of general memory barriers guarantees
+transitivity. Therefore, in the above example, if CPU 2's load from X
+returns 1 and its load from Y returns 0, then CPU 3's load from X must
+also return 1.
+
+However, transitivity is -not- guaranteed for read or write barriers.
+For example, suppose that CPU 2's general barrier in the above example
+is changed to a read barrier as shown below:
+
+ CPU 1 CPU 2 CPU 3
+ ======================= ======================= =======================
+ { X = 0, Y = 0 }
+ STORE X=1 LOAD X STORE Y=1
+ <read barrier> <general barrier>
+ LOAD Y LOAD X
+
+This substitution destroys transitivity: in this example, it is perfectly
+legal for CPU 2's load from X to return 1, its load from Y to return 0,
+and CPU 3's load from X to return 0.
+
+The key point is that although CPU 2's read barrier orders its pair
+of loads, it does not guarantee to order CPU 1's store. Therefore, if
+this example runs on a system where CPUs 1 and 2 share a store buffer
+or a level of cache, CPU 2 might have early access to CPU 1's writes.
+General barriers are therefore required to ensure that all CPUs agree
+on the combined order of CPU 1's and CPU 2's accesses.
+
+To reiterate, if your code requires transitivity, use general barriers
+throughout.

-
-The implementation is based on the Data Connection Establishment Sequence
-depicted in 'Nokia Wireless Modem API - Wireless_modem_user_guide.pdf'
-document.
-
-It allows a phonet sequenced socket (host-pep) to initiate a Pipe connection
-between itself and a remote pipe-end point (e.g. modem).
-
-The implementation adds socket options at SOL_PNPIPE level:
-
- PNPIPE_PIPE_HANDLE
- It accepts an integer argument for setting value of pipe handle.
-
- PNPIPE_ENABLE accepts one integer value (int). If set to zero, the pipe
- is disabled. If the value is non-zero, the pipe is enabled. If the pipe
- is not (yet) connected, ENOTCONN is error is returned.
-
-The implementation also adds socket 'connect'. On calling the 'connect', pipe
-will be created between the source socket and the destination, and the pipe
-state will be set to PIPE_DISABLED.
-
-After a pipe has been created and enabled successfully, the Pipe data can be
-exchanged between the host-pep and remote-pep (modem).
-
-User-space would typically follow below sequence with Pipe controller:-
--socket

--connect
--setsockopt for PNPIPE_ENCAP_IP
--setsockopt for PNPIPE_ENABLE

+ identifier ("pipe handle") of the pipe. This is only defined for
+ socket descriptors that are already connected or being connected.

+
+Power domain ->runtime_idle() callback is executed before the subsystem-level
+->runtime_idle() callback and the result returned by it is not ignored. Namely,
+if it returns error code, the subsystem-level ->runtime_idle() callback will not
+be called and the helper function rpm_idle() executing it will return error
+code. This mechanism is intended to help platforms where saving device state
+is a time consuming operation and should only be carried out if all devices
+in the power domain are idle, before turning off the shared power resource(s).
+Namely, the power domain ->runtime_idle() callback may return error code until
+the pm_runtime_idle() helper (or its asychronous version) has been called for
+all devices in the power domain (it is recommended that the returned error code
+be -EBUSY in those cases), preventing the subsystem-level ->runtime_idle()
+callback from being run prematurely.
+
+The support for device power domains is only relevant to platforms needing to
+use the same subsystem-level (e.g. platform bus type) and device driver power
+management callbacks in many different power domain configurations and wanting
+to avoid incorporating the support for power domains into the subsystem-level
+callbacks. The other platforms need not implement it or take it into account
+in any way.

-* OpenPIC and its interrupt numbers on Freescale's e500/e600 cores
-
-The OpenPIC specification does not specify which interrupt source has to
-become which interrupt number. This is up to the software implementation
-of the interrupt controller. The only requirement is that every
-interrupt source has to have an unique interrupt number / vector number.
-To accomplish this the current implementation assigns the number zero to
-the first source, the number one to the second source and so on until
-all interrupt sources have their unique number.
-Usually the assigned vector number equals the interrupt number mentioned
-in the documentation for a given core / CPU. This is however not true
-for the e500 cores (MPC85XX CPUs) where the documentation distinguishes
-between internal and external interrupt sources and starts counting at
-zero for both of them.
-
-So what to write for external interrupt source X or internal interrupt
-source Y into the device tree? Here is an example:
-
-The memory map for the interrupt controller in the MPC8544[0] shows,
-that the first interrupt source starts at 0x5_0000 (PIC Register Address
-Map-Interrupt Source Configuration Registers). This source becomes the
-number zero therefore:
- External interrupt 0 = interrupt number 0
- External interrupt 1 = interrupt number 1
- External interrupt 2 = interrupt number 2
- ...
-Every interrupt number allocates 0x20 bytes register space. So to get
-its number it is sufficient to shift the lower 16bits to right by five.
-So for the external interrupt 10 we have:
- 0x0140 >> 5 = 10
-
-After the external sources, the internal sources follow. The in core I2C
-controller on the MPC8544 for instance has the internal source number
-27. Oo obtain its interrupt number we take the lower 16bits of its memory
-address (0x5_0560) and shift it right:
- 0x0560 >> 5 = 43
-
-Therefore the I2C device node for the MPC8544 CPU has to have the
-interrupt number 43 specified in the device tree.

+n_gsm.c GSM 0710 tty multiplexor HOWTO
+===================================================
+
+This line discipline implements the GSM 07.10 multiplexing protocol
+detailed in the following 3GPP document :
+http://www.3gpp.org/ftp/Specs/archive/07_series/07.10/0710-720.zip
+
+This document give some hints on how to use this driver with GPRS and 3G
+modems connected to a physical serial port.
+
+How to use it
+-------------
+1- initialize the modem in 0710 mux mode (usually AT+CMUX= command) through
+its serial port. Depending on the modem used, you can pass more or less
+parameters to this command,
+2- switch the serial line to using the n_gsm line discipline by using
+TIOCSETD ioctl,
+3- configure the mux using GSMIOC_GETCONF / GSMIOC_SETCONF ioctl,
+
+Major parts of the initialization program :
+(a good starting point is util-linux-ng/sys-utils/ldattach.c)
+#include <linux/gsmmux.h>
+#define N_GSM0710 21 /* GSM 0710 Mux */
+#define DEFAULT_SPEED B115200
+#define SERIAL_PORT /dev/ttyS0
+
+ int ldisc = N_GSM0710;
+ struct gsm_config c;
+ struct termios configuration;
+
+ /* open the serial port connected to the modem */
+ fd = open(SERIAL_PORT, O_RDWR | O_NOCTTY | O_NDELAY);
+
+ /* configure the serial port : speed, flow control ... */
+
+ /* send the AT commands to switch the modem to CMUX mode
+ and check that it's succesful (should return OK) */
+ write(fd, "AT+CMUX=0\r", 10);
+
+ /* experience showed that some modems need some time before
+ being able to answer to the first MUX packet so a delay
+ may be needed here in some case */
+ sleep(3);
+
+ /* use n_gsm line discipline */
+ ioctl(fd, TIOCSETD, &ldisc);
+
+ /* get n_gsm configuration */
+ ioctl(fd, GSMIOC_GETCONF, &c);
+ /* we are initiator and need encoding 0 (basic) */
+ c.initiator = 1;
+ c.encapsulation = 0;
+ /* our modem defaults to a maximum size of 127 bytes */
+ c.mru = 127;
+ c.mtu = 127;
+ /* set the new configuration */
+ ioctl(fd, GSMIOC_SETCONF, &c);
+
+ /* and wait for ever to keep the line discipline enabled */
+ daemon(0,0);
+ pause();
+
+4- create the devices corresponding to the "virtual" serial ports (take care,
+each modem has its configuration and some DLC have dedicated functions,
+for example GPS), starting with minor 1 (DLC0 is reserved for the management
+of the mux)
+
+MAJOR=`cat /proc/devices |grep gsmtty | awk '{print $1}`
+for i in `seq 1 4`; do
+ mknod /dev/ttygsm$i c $MAJOR $i
+done
+
+5- use these devices as plain serial ports.
+for example, it's possible :
+- and to use gnokii to send / receive SMS on ttygsm1
+- to use ppp to establish a datalink on ttygsm2
+
+6- first close all virtual ports before closing the physical port.
+

-The sched_switch file only lists the wake ups (represented with
-'+') and context switches ('==>') with the previous task or
-current task first followed by the next task or task waking up.
-The format for both of these is PID:KERNEL-PRIO:TASK-STATE.
-Remember that the KERNEL-PRIO is the inverse of the actual
-priority with zero (0) being the highest priority and the nice
-values starting at 100 (nice -20). Below is a quick chart to map

+Linux内核开发者认为安全非常重要。因此,我们想要知道当一个有关于
+安全的漏洞被发现的时候,并且它可能会被尽快的修复或者公开。请把这个安全
+漏洞报告给Linux内核安全团队。
+
+1) 联系
+
+linux内核安全团队可以通过email<security@kernel.org>来联系。这是
+一组独立的安全工作人员,可以帮助改善漏洞报告并且公布和取消一个修复。安
+全团队有可能会从部分的维护者那里引进额外的帮助来了解并且修复安全漏洞。
+当遇到任何漏洞,所能提供的信息越多就越能诊断和修复。如果你不清楚什么
+是有帮助的信息,那就请重温一下REPORTING-BUGS文件中的概述过程。任
+何攻击性的代码都是非常有用的,未经报告者的同意不会被取消,除非它已经
+被公布于众。
+
+2) 公开
+
+Linux内核安全团队的宗旨就是和漏洞提交者一起处理漏洞的解决方案直
+到公开。我们喜欢尽快地完全公开漏洞。当一个漏洞或者修复还没有被完全地理
+解,解决方案没有通过测试或者供应商协调,可以合理地延迟公开。然而,我们
+期望这些延迟尽可能的短些,是可数的几天,而不是几个星期或者几个月。公开
+日期是通过安全团队和漏洞提供者以及供应商洽谈后的结果。公开时间表是从很
+短(特殊的,它已经被公众所知道)到几个星期。作为一个基本的默认政策,我
+们所期望通知公众的日期是7天的安排。
+
+3) 保密协议
+
+Linux内核安全团队不是一个正式的团体,因此不能加入任何的保密协议。

+这个文件是有关当前使用的魔术值注册表。当你给一个结构添加了一个魔术值,你也应该把这个魔术值添加到这个文件,因为我们最好把用于各种结构的魔术值统一起来。
+
+使用魔术值来保护内核数据结构是一个非常好的主意。这就允许你在运行期检查(a)一个结构是否已经被攻击,或者(b)你已经给一个例行程序通过了一个错误的结构。后一种情况特别地有用---特别是当你通过一个空指针指向结构体的时候。tty源码,例如,经常通过特定驱动使用这种方法并且反复地排列特定方面的结构。
+
+使用魔术值的方法是在结构的开始处声明的,如下:
+
+struct tty_ldisc {
+ int magic;
+ ...
+};
+
+当你以后给内核添加增强功能的时候,请遵守这条规则!这样就会节省数不清的调试时间,特别是一些古怪的情况,例如,数组超出范围并且重新写了超出部分。遵守这个规则,‪这些情况可以被快速地,安全地避免。

+
+现在应该最新的Linux 2.1.112.因为在特性冻结期间,不能在2.2.x前改变任何东西。这些条目被数域所排序。

+
+更新魔术表到Linux 2.5.45。刚好越过特性冻结,但是有可能还会有一些新的魔术值在2.6.x之前融入到内核中。

+
+请注意,在声音记忆管理中仍然有每一些被定义的驱动魔术值。查看include/sound/sndmagic.h来获取他们完整的列表信息。很多OSS声音驱动拥有自己从声卡PCI ID构建的魔术值-他们也没有被列在这里。
+
+IrDA子系统也使用了大量的自己的魔术值,查看include/net/irda/irda.h来获取他们完整的信息。
+
+HFS是另外一个比较大的使用魔术值的文件系统-你可以在fs/hfs/hfs.h中找到他们。
