2013-04-11x86, early-printk: Update earlyprintk documentation (and kill x86 copy)Dave Hansen2-16/+14
Documentation/kernel-parameters.txt and Documentation/x86/x86_64/boot-options.txt contain virtually identical text describing earlyprintk. This consolidates the two copies and updates the documentation a bit. No one ever documented the: earlyprintk=serial,0x1008,115200 syntax, nor mentioned that ARM is now a supported earlyprintk arch.

Need to consider sequence is: numaq, srat, amd, dummy. and make fall back path working. 2. simply split acpi_numa_init to early_parse_srat. a. that early_parse_srat is NOT called for ia64, so you break ia64. b. for (i = 0; i < MAX_LOCAL_APIC; i++) set_apicid_to_node(i, NUMA_NO_NODE) still left in numa_init. So it will just clear result from early_parse_srat. it should be moved before that.... c. it breaks ACPI_TABLE_OVERIDE...as the acpi table scan is moved early before override from INITRD is settled. 3. that patch TITLE is total misleading, there is NO x86 in the title, but it changes critical x86 code. It caused x86 guys did not pay attention to find the problem early. Those patches really should be routed via tip/x86/mm. 4. after that commit, following range can not use movable ram: a. real_mode code.... well..funny, legacy Node0 [0,1M) could be hot-removed? b. initrd... it will be freed after booting, so it could be on movable... c. crashkernel for kdump...: looks like we can not put kdump kernel above 4G anymore. d. init_mem_mapping: can not put page table high anymore. e. initmem_init: vmemmap can not be high local node anymore. That is not good. If node is hotplugable, the mem related range like page table and vmemmap could be on the that node without problem and should be on that node. We have workaround patch that could fix some problems, but some can not be fixed. So just remove that offending commit and related ones including: f7210e6c4ac7 ("mm/memblock.c: use CONFIG_HAVE_MEMBLOCK_NODE_MAP to protect movablecore_map in memblock_overlaps_region().") 01a178a94e8e ("acpi, memory-hotplug: support getting hotplug info from SRAT") 27168d38fa20 ("acpi, memory-hotplug: extend movablemem_map ranges to the end of node") e8d195525809 ("acpi, memory-hotplug: parse SRAT before memblock is ready") fb06bc8e5f42 ("page_alloc: bootmem limit with movablecore_map") 42f47e27e761 ("page_alloc: make movablemem_map have higher priority") 6981ec31146c ("page_alloc: introduce zone_movable_limit[] to keep movable limit for nodes") 34b71f1e04fc ("page_alloc: add movable_memmap kernel parameter") 4d59a75125d5 ("x86: get pg_data_t's memory from other node") Later we should have patches that will make sure kernel put page table and vmemmap on local node ram instead of push them down to node0. Also need to find way to put other kernel used ram to local node ram.

2013-03-01dm: add cache targetJoe Thornber1-0/+243
Add a target that allows a fast device such as an SSD to be used as a cache for a slower device such as a disk. A plug-in architecture was chosen so that the decisions about which data to migrate and when are delegated to interchangeable tunable policy modules. The first general purpose module we have developed, called "mq" (multiqueue), follows in the next patch. Other modules are under development.

Notable changes are: - More devices get moved out of board files into device tree descriptions. The remaining devices listed in there have patches that will get sent for 3.10, after which we can remove a lot of the board files entirely. We are doing the pinctrl and mmc drivers here, ethernet and PCI still remain. - SMP support for mvebu is improved with support for the local interrupt controller. - The Guruplug board file gets replaced with a DT description. Unfortunately, the dependency on the MMC tree turned out to be a much larger problem than expected, when the MMC maintainer rebased the patches in his tree that all of the patches in this branch are based on, which caused merge conflicts between the new and old versions of those patches. To work around the merge conflicts, this branch rebases all patches on top of the respective MMC patches that did get merged into 3.9.

2013-02-28dmaengine: dw_dmac: move to generic DMA bindingArnd Bergmann1-34/+36
The original device tree binding for this driver, from Viresh Kumar unfortunately conflicted with the generic DMA binding, and did not allow to completely seperate slave device configuration from the controller. This is an attempt to replace it with an implementation of the generic binding, but it is currently completely untested, because I do not have any hardware with this particular controller. The patch applies on top of the slave-dma tree, which contains both the base support for the generic DMA binding, as well as the earlier attempt from Viresh. Both of these are currently not merged upstream however. This version incorporates feedback from Viresh Kumar, Andy Shevchenko and Russell King.

2013-02-27dma-buf: implement vmap refcounting in the interface logicDaniel Vetter1-1/+5
All drivers which implement this need to have some sort of refcount to allow concurrent vmap usage. Hence implement this in the dma-buf core. To protect against concurrent calls we need a lock, which potentially causes new funny locking inversions. But this shouldn't be a problem for exporters with statically allocated backing storage, and more dynamic drivers have decent issues already anyway. Inspired by some refactoring patches from Aaron Plattner, who implemented the same idea, but only for drm/prime drivers. v2: Check in dma_buf_release that no dangling vmaps are left. Suggested by Aaron Plattner. We might want to do similar checks for attachments, but that's for another patch. Also fix up ERR_PTR return for vmap. v3: Check whether the passed-in vmap address matches with the cached one for vunmap. Eventually we might want to remove that parameter - compared to the kmap functions there's no need for the vaddr for unmapping. Suggested by Chris Wilson. v4: Fix a brown-paper-bag bug spotted by Aaron Plattner.

Drivers: - android-goldfish: New MMC driver for the Android Goldfish emulator. - mvsdio: Add DT bindings, pinctrl, use slot-gpio for card detection. - omap_hsmmc: Fix boot hangs with RPMB partitions. - sdhci-bcm2835: New driver for controller used by Raspberry Pi. - sdhci-esdhc-imx: Add 8-bit data, auto CMD23 support, use slot-gpio. - sh_mmcif: Add support for eMMC DDR, bundled MMCIF IRQs. - tmio_mmc: Add DT bindings, support for vccq regulator" * tag 'mmc-updates-for-3.9-rc1' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/cjb/mmc: (92 commits) mmc: tegra: assume CONFIG_OF, remove platform data mmc: add DT bindings for more MMC capability flags mmc: tmio: add support for the VccQ regulator mmc: tmio: remove unused and deprecated symbols mmc: sh_mobile_sdhi: use managed resource allocations mmc: sh_mobile_sdhi: remove unused .pdata field mmc: tmio-mmc: parse device-tree bindings mmc: tmio-mmc: define device-tree bindings mmc: sh_mmcif: use mmc_of_parse() to parse standard MMC DT bindings mmc: (cosmetic) remove "extern" from function declarations mmc: provide a standard MMC device-tree binding parser centrally mmc: detailed definition of CD and WP MMC line polarities in DT mmc: sdhi, tmio: only check flags in tmio-mmc driver proper mmc: sdhci: Fix parameter of sdhci_do_start_signal_voltage_switch() mmc: sdhci: check voltage range only on regulators aware of voltage value mmc: bcm2835: set SDHCI_QUIRK_DATA_TIMEOUT_USES_SDCLK mmc: support packed write command for eMMC4.5 devices mmc: add packed command feature of eMMC4.5 mmc: rtsx: remove driving adjustment mmc: use regulator_can_change_voltage() instead of regulator_count_voltages ...
