2013-08-20doc: fix a typo about irq affinityHu Tao1-2/+2
smp_affinity holds bitmask and smp_affinity_list holds list. So we should write a list to smp_affinity_list, instead of smp_affinity. Signed-off-by: Hu Tao <hutao@cn.fujitsu.com> Acked-by: Rob Landley <rob@landley.net> Signed-off-by: Jiri Kosina <jkosina@suse.cz>
2011-05-25bitmap, irq: add smp_affinity_list interface to /proc/irqMike Travis1-4/+13
Manually adjusting the smp_affinity for IRQ's becomes unwieldy when the cpu count is large. Setting smp affinity to cpus 256 to 263 would be: echo 000000ff,00000000,00000000,00000000,00000000,00000000,00000000,00000000 > smp_affinity instead of: echo 256-263 > smp_affinity_list Think about what it looks like for cpus around say, 4088 to 4095. We already have many alternate "list" interfaces: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpuX/indexY/shared_cpu_list /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpuX/topology/thread_siblings_list /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpuX/topology/core_siblings_list /sys/devices/system/node/nodeX/cpulist /sys/devices/pci***/***/local_cpulist Add a companion interface, smp_affinity_list to use cpu lists instead of cpu maps. This conforms to other companion interfaces where both a map and a list interface exists. This required adding a bitmap_parselist_user() function in a manner similar to the bitmap_parse_user() function.

2008-06-05genirq: Expose default irq affinity mask (take 3)Max Krasnyansky1-9/+28
Current IRQ affinity interface does not provide a way to set affinity for the IRQs that will be allocated/activated in the future. This patch creates /proc/irq/default_smp_affinity that lets users set default affinity mask for the newly allocated IRQs. Changing the default does not affect affinity masks for the currently active IRQs, they have to be changed explicitly. Updated based on Paul J's comments and added some more documentation.

Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
