2006-10-03[PATCH] md: new sysfs interface for setting bits in the write-intent-bitmapPaul Clements1-0/+9
Add a new sysfs interface that allows the bitmap of an array to be dirtied. The interface is write-only, and is used as follows: echo "1000" > /sys/block/md2/md/bitmap (dirty the bit for chunk 1000 [offset 0] in the in-memory and on-disk bitmaps of array md2) echo "1000-2000" > /sys/block/md1/md/bitmap (dirty the bits for chunks 1000-2000 in md1's bitmap) This is useful, for example, in cluster environments where you may need to combine two disjoint bitmaps into one (following a server failure, after a secondary server has taken over the array). By combining the bitmaps on the two servers, a full resync can be avoided (This was discussed on the list back on March 18, 2005, "[PATCH 1/2] md bitmap bug fixes" thread).

After the previous patch to disable the kernel IPMI daemon if interrupts were available, the issue of broken hardware was raised, and a reasonable request to add an override was mode. So here it is. Allow the user to force the kernel ipmi daemon on or off. This way, hardware with broken interrupts or users that are not concerned with performance can turn it on or off to their liking.

2006-09-29[PATCH] cpuset: top_cpuset tracks hotplug changes to node_online_mapPaul Jackson1-5/+5
Change the list of memory nodes allowed to tasks in the top (root) nodeset to dynamically track what cpus are online, using a call to a cpuset hook from the memory hotplug code. Make this top cpus file read-only. On systems that have cpusets configured in their kernel, but that aren't actively using cpusets (for some distros, this covers the majority of systems) all tasks end up in the top cpuset. If that system does support memory hotplug, then these tasks cannot make use of memory nodes that are added after system boot, because the memory nodes are not allowed in the top cpuset. This is a surprising regression over earlier kernels that didn't have cpusets enabled. One key motivation for this change is to remain consistent with the behaviour for the top_cpuset's 'cpus', which is also read-only, and which automatically tracks the cpu_online_map. This change also has the minor benefit that it fixes a long standing, little noticed, minor bug in cpusets. The cpuset performance tweak to short circuit the cpuset_zone_allowed() check on systems with just a single cpuset (see 'number_of_cpusets', in linux/cpuset.h) meant that simply changing the 'mems' of the top_cpuset had no affect, even though the change (the write system call) appeared to succeed. With the following change, that write to the 'mems' file fails -EACCES, and the 'mems' file stubbornly refuses to be changed via user space writes. Thus no one should be mislead into thinking they've changed the top_cpusets's 'mems' when in affect they haven't. In order to keep the behaviour of cpusets consistent between systems actively making use of them and systems not using them, this patch changes the behaviour of the 'mems' file in the top (root) cpuset, making it read only, and making it automatically track the value of node_online_map. Thus tasks in the top cpuset will have automatic use of hot plugged memory nodes allowed by their cpuset.
