git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/thierry.reding/linux-pwm Pull pwm changes from Thierry Reding: "The majority of these changes are cleanups and fixes across all drivers. Redundant error messages are removed and more PWM controllers set the .can_sleep flag to signal that they can't be used in atomic context. Support is added for the Broadcom Kona family of SoCs and the Intel LPSS driver can now probe PCI devices in addition to ACPI devices. Upon shutdown, the pwm-backlight driver will now power off the backlight. It also uses the new descriptor-based GPIO API for more concise GPIO handling. A large chunk of these changes also converts platforms to use the lookup mechanism rather than relying on the global number space to reference PWM devices. This is largely in preparation for more unification and cleanups in future patches. Eventually it will allow the legacy PWM API to be removed" * tag 'pwm/for-3.16-rc1' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/thierry.reding/linux-pwm: (38 commits) pwm: fsl-ftm: set pwm_chip can_sleep flag pwm: ab8500: Fix wrong value shift for disable/enable PWM pwm: samsung: do not set manual update bit in pwm_samsung_config pwm: lp3943: Set pwm_chip can_sleep flag pwm: atmel: set pwm_chip can_sleep flag pwm: mxs: set pwm_chip can_sleep flag pwm: tiehrpwm: inline accessor functions pwm: tiehrpwm: don't build PM related functions when not needed pwm-backlight: retrieve configured PWM period leds: leds-pwm: retrieve configured PWM period ARM: pxa: hx4700: use PWM_LOOKUP to initialize struct pwm_lookup ARM: shmobile: armadillo: use PWM_LOOKUP to initialize struct pwm_lookup ARM: OMAP3: Beagle: use PWM_LOOKUP to initialize struct pwm_lookup pwm: modify PWM_LOOKUP to initialize all struct pwm_lookup members ARM: pxa: hx4700: initialize all the struct pwm_lookup members ARM: OMAP3: Beagle: initialize all the struct pwm_lookup members pwm: renesas-tpu: remove unused struct tpu_pwm_platform_data ARM: shmobile: armadillo: initialize all struct pwm_lookup members pwm: add period and polarity to struct pwm_lookup pwm: twl: Really disable twl6030 PWMs ...

2014-06-11net: filter: cleanup A/X name usageAlexei Starovoitov1-1/+1
The macro 'A' used in internal BPF interpreter: #define A regs[insn->a_reg] was easily confused with the name of classic BPF register 'A', since 'A' would mean two different things depending on context. This patch is trying to clean up the naming and clarify its usage in the following way: - A and X are names of two classic BPF registers - BPF_REG_A denotes internal BPF register R0 used to map classic register A in internal BPF programs generated from classic - BPF_REG_X denotes internal BPF register R7 used to map classic register X in internal BPF programs generated from classic - internal BPF instruction format: struct sock_filter_int { __u8 code; /* opcode */ __u8 dst_reg:4; /* dest register */ __u8 src_reg:4; /* source register */ __s16 off; /* signed offset */ __s32 imm; /* signed immediate constant */ }; - BPF_X/BPF_K is 1 bit used to encode source operand of instruction In classic: BPF_X - means use register X as source operand BPF_K - means use 32-bit immediate as source operand In internal: BPF_X - means use 'src_reg' register as source operand BPF_K - means use 32-bit immediate as source operand Suggested-by: Chema Gonzalez <chema@google.com> Signed-off-by: Alexei Starovoitov <ast@plumgrid.com> Acked-by: Daniel Borkmann <dborkman@redhat.com> Acked-by: Chema Gonzalez <chema@google.com> Signed-off-by: David S.

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/benh/powerpc Pull powerpc updates from Ben Herrenschmidt: "Here is the bulk of the powerpc changes for this merge window. It got a bit delayed in part because I wasn't paying attention, and in part because I discovered I had a core PCI change without a PCI maintainer ack in it. Bjorn eventually agreed it was ok to merge it though we'll probably improve it later and I didn't want to rebase to add his ack. There is going to be a bit more next week, essentially fixes that I still want to sort through and test. The biggest item this time is the support to build the ppc64 LE kernel with our new v2 ABI. We previously supported v2 userspace but the kernel itself was a tougher nut to crack. This is now sorted mostly thanks to Anton and Rusty. We also have a fairly big series from Cedric that add support for 64-bit LE zImage boot wrapper. This was made harder by the fact that traditionally our zImage wrapper was always 32-bit, but our new LE toolchains don't really support 32-bit anymore (it's somewhat there but not really "supported") so we didn't want to rely on it. This meant more churn that just endian fixes. This brings some more LE bits as well, such as the ability to run in LE mode without a hypervisor (ie. under OPAL firmware) by doing the right OPAL call to reinitialize the CPU to take HV interrupts in the right mode and the usual pile of endian fixes. There's another series from Gavin adding EEH improvements (one day we *will* have a release with less than 20 EEH patches, I promise!). Another highlight is the support for the "Split core" functionality on P8 by Michael. This allows a P8 core to be split into "sub cores" of 4 threads which allows the subcores to run different guests under KVM (the HW still doesn't support a partition per thread). And then the usual misc bits and fixes ..." [ Further delayed by gmail deciding that BenH is a dirty spammer.

2014-06-06mm: mark remap_file_pages() syscall as deprecatedKirill A. Shutemov1-0/+28
The remap_file_pages() system call is used to create a nonlinear mapping, that is, a mapping in which the pages of the file are mapped into a nonsequential order in memory. The advantage of using remap_file_pages() over using repeated calls to mmap(2) is that the former approach does not require the kernel to create additional VMA (Virtual Memory Area) data structures. Supporting of nonlinear mapping requires significant amount of non-trivial code in kernel virtual memory subsystem including hot paths. Also to get nonlinear mapping work kernel need a way to distinguish normal page table entries from entries with file offset (pte_file). Kernel reserves flag in PTE for this purpose. PTE flags are scarce resource especially on some CPU architectures. It would be nice to free up the flag for other usage. Fortunately, there are not many users of remap_file_pages() in the wild. It's only known that one enterprise RDBMS implementation uses the syscall on 32-bit systems to map files bigger than can linearly fit into 32-bit virtual address space. This use-case is not critical anymore since 64-bit systems are widely available. The plan is to deprecate the syscall and replace it with an emulation. The emulation will create new VMAs instead of nonlinear mappings. It's going to work slower for rare users of remap_file_pages() but ABI is preserved. One side effect of emulation (apart from performance) is that user can hit vm.max_map_count limit more easily due to additional VMAs. See comment for DEFAULT_MAX_MAP_COUNT for more details on the limit. [akpm@linux-foundation.org: fix spello] Signed-off-by: Kirill A.

2014-06-06vmscan: memcg: always use swappiness of the reclaimed memcgMichal Hocko1-8/+7
Memory reclaim always uses swappiness of the reclaim target memcg (origin of the memory pressure) or vm_swappiness for global memory reclaim. This behavior was consistent (except for difference between global and hard limit reclaim) because swappiness was enforced to be consistent within each memcg hierarchy. After "mm: memcontrol: remove hierarchy restrictions for swappiness and oom_control" each memcg can have its own swappiness independent of hierarchical parents, though, so the consistency guarantee is gone. This can lead to an unexpected behavior. Say that a group is explicitly configured to not swapout by memory.swappiness=0 but its memory gets swapped out anyway when the memory pressure comes from its parent with a It is also unexpected that the knob is meaningless without setting the hard limit which would trigger the reclaim and enforce the swappiness. There are setups where the hard limit is configured higher in the hierarchy by an administrator and children groups are under control of somebody else who is interested in the swapout behavior but not necessarily about the memory limit. From a semantic point of view swappiness is an attribute defining anon vs. file proportional scanning of LRU which is memcg specific (unlike charges which are propagated up the hierarchy) so it should be applied to the particular memcg's LRU regardless where the memory pressure comes from. This patch removes vmscan_swappiness() and stores the swappiness into the scan_control structure. mem_cgroup_swappiness is then used to provide the correct value before shrink_lruvec is called. The global vm_swappiness is used for the root memcg.

2014-06-06sysctl: allow for strict write position handlingKees Cook1-0/+21
When writing to a sysctl string, each write, regardless of VFS position, begins writing the string from the start. This means the contents of the last write to the sysctl controls the string contents instead of the first: open("/proc/sys/kernel/modprobe", O_WRONLY) = 1 write(1, "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA"..., 4096) = 4096 write(1, "/bin/true", 9) = 9 close(1) = 0 $ cat /proc/sys/kernel/modprobe /bin/true Expected behaviour would be to have the sysctl be "AAAA..." capped at maxlen (in this case KMOD_PATH_LEN: 256), instead of truncating to the contents of the second write. Similarly, multiple short writes would not append to the sysctl. The old behavior is unlike regular POSIX files enough that doing audits of software that interact with sysctls can end up in unexpected or dangerous situations. For example, "as long as the input starts with a trusted path" turns out to be an insufficient filter, as what must also happen is for the input to be entirely contained in a single write syscall -- not a common consideration, especially for high level tools. This provides kernel.sysctl_writes_strict as a way to make this behavior act in a less surprising manner for strings, and disallows non-zero file position when writing numeric sysctls (similar to what is already done when reading from non-zero file positions). For now, the default (0) is to warn about non-zero file position use, but retain the legacy behavior. Setting this to -1 disables the warning, and setting this to 1 enables the file position respecting behavior.

2014-06-06kernel/panic.c: add "crash_kexec_post_notifiers" option for kdump after ↵Masami Hiramatsu1-0/+8
panic_notifers Add a "crash_kexec_post_notifiers" boot option to run kdump after running panic_notifiers and dump kmsg. This can help rare situations where kdump fails because of unstable crashed kernel or hardware failure (memory corruption on critical data/code), or the 2nd kernel is already broken by the 1st kernel (it's a broken behavior, but who can guarantee that the "crashed" kernel works correctly?). Usage: add "crash_kexec_post_notifiers" to kernel boot option. Note that this actually increases risks of the failure of kdump. This option should be set only if you worry about the rare case of kdump failure rather than increasing the chance of success.

2014-06-06Documentation/memory-barriers.txt: fix important typo re memory barriersAlexey Dobriyan1-2/+2
Examples introducing neccesity of RMB+WMP pair reads as A=3 READ B www rrrrrr B=4 READ A Note the opposite order of reads vs writes. But the first example without barriers reads as A=3 READ A B=4 READ B There are 4 outcomes in the first example. But if someone new to the concept tries to insert barriers like this: A=3 READ A www rrrrrr B=4 READ B he will still get all 4 possible outcomes, because "READ A" is first. All this can be utterly confusing because barrier pair seems to be superfluous. In short, fixup first example to match latter examples with barriers.
