2006-10-03Fix "can not" in Documentation and KconfigMatt LaPlante24-31/+31
Randy brought it to my attention that in proper english "can not" should always be written "cannot". I donot see any reason to argue, even if I mightnot understand why this rule exists.

2006-10-03x86: Fix booting with "no387 nofxsr"Linus Torvalds1-0/+9
Jesper Juhl reported that testing the software math-emulation by forcing "no387" doesn't work on modern CPU's. The reason was two-fold: - you also need to pass in "nofxsr" to make sure that we not only don't touch the old i387 legacy hardware, it also needs to disable the modern XMM/FXSR sequences - "nofxsr" didn't actually clear the capability bits immediately, leaving the early boot sequence still using FXSR until we got to the identify_cpu() stage. This fixes the "nofxsr" flag to take effect immediately on the boot CPU.

2006-10-03[PATCH] pr_debug: check pr_debug() argumentsZach Brown1-2/+4
check pr_debug() arguments When DEBUG isn't defined pr_debug() is defined away as an empty macro. By throwing away the arguments we allow completely incorrect code to build. Instead let's make it an empty inline which checks arguments and mark it so gcc can check the format specification. This results in a seemingly insignificant code size increase.

Once upon a time we needed to fixed limit to the number of md devices, probably because we preallocated some array. This need no longer exists, but we still have an arbitrary limit. So remove MAX_MD_DEVS and allow as many devices as we can fit into the 'minor' part of a device number. Also remove some useless noise at init time (which reports MAX_MD_DEVS) and remove MD_THREAD_NAME_MAX which hasn't been used for a while.

2006-10-03[PATCH] md: make messages about resync/recovery etc more specificNeilBrown1-16/+31
It is possible to request a 'check' of an md/raid array where the whole array is read and consistancies are reported. This uses the same mechanisms as 'resync' and so reports in the kernel logs that a resync is being started. This understandably confuses/worries people. Also the text in /proc/mdstat suggests a 'resync' is happen when it is just a check. This patch changes those messages to be more specific about what is happening.

raid1, raid10 and multipath don't report their 'congested' status through bdi_*_congested, but should. This patch adds the appropriate functions which just check the 'congested' status of all active members (with appropriate locking). raid1 read_balance should be modified to prefer devices where bdi_read_congested returns false. Then we could use the '&' branch rather than the '|' branch. However that should would need some benchmarking first to make sure it is actually a good idea.

2006-10-03[PATCH] md: Improve locking around error handlingNeilBrown3-17/+31
The error handling routines don't use proper locking, and so two concurrent errors could trigger a problem. So: - use test-and-set and test-and-clear to synchonise the In_sync bits with the ->degraded count - use the spinlock to protect updates to the degraded count (could use an atomic_t but that would be a bigger change in code, and isn't really justified) - remove un-necessary locking in raid5 Signed-off-by: Neil Brown <neilb@suse.de> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
