git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/gregkh/staging Pull staging driver updates from Greg KH: "Here's the big staging tree pull request for 3.19-rc1. We continued to delete more lines than were added, always a good thing, but not at a huge rate this release, only about 70k lines removed overall mostly from removing the horrid bcm driver. Lots of normal staging driver cleanups and fixes all over the place, well over a thousand of them, the shortlog shows all the horrid details. The "contentious" thing here is the movement of the Android binder code out of staging into the "real" part of the kernel. This is code that has been stable for a few years now and is working as-is in the tens of millions of devices with no issues. Yes, the code is horrid, and the userspace api leaves a lot to be desired, but it's not going to change due to legacy issues that we have no control over. Because so many devices and companies rely on this, and the code is stable, might as well promote it out of staging. This was all discussed at the Linux Plumbers conference, and everyone participating agreed that this was the best way forward. There is work happening to replace the binder code with something new that is happening right now, but I don't expect to see the results of that work for another year at the earliest. If that ever happens, and Android switches over to it, I'll gladly remove this version. As for maintainers, I'll be glad to maintain this code, I've been doing it for the past few years with no problems. I'll send a MAINTAINERS entry for it before 3.19-final is out, still need to talk to the Google developers about if they are willing to help with it or not, last I checked they were, which was good.

2014-11-26staging: octeon-ethernet: drop multiple NAPI instancesAaro Koskinen1-6/+0
Octeon Ethernet driver is currently trying to wake up multiple CPU cores for parallel NAPI processing when needed, to cope with the fact that all network interfaces are handled through the same receive queue processed by a single core/interrupt (see http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=137209784914565&w=2). This partially overlaps with generic RPS functionality. Commit a6a39a7fcff5 ("staging: octeon-ethernet: disable load balance for receiving packet when CONFIG_RPS is enabled") already disabled this when RPS is enabled. Let's delete this code altogether as it has issues like packet reordering and potential problems with CPU offlining/onlining. Tested on EdgeRouter Lite.

2014-06-19staging: octeon-ethernet: Move PHY activation to .ndo_open().David Daney1-1/+1
This prevents PHY not found types of errors for PHY drivers that are probed after the Ethernet driver is probed, because the ifconfig UP is done from userspace after all drivers have been probed. Also avoid the cvmx-helper-board.c PHY code if a real PHY driver is present, this allows a bootloader supplied device tree to specify the PHY information rather than having to modify the code for each different board.

2010-03-30include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking ↵Tejun Heo1-0/+1
implicit slab.h inclusion from percpu.h percpu.h is included by sched.h and module.h and thus ends up being included when building most .c files. percpu.h includes slab.h which in turn includes gfp.h making everything defined by the two files universally available and complicating inclusion dependencies. percpu.h -> slab.h dependency is about to be removed. Prepare for this change by updating users of gfp and slab facilities include those headers directly instead of assuming availability. As this conversion needs to touch large number of source files, the following script is used as the basis of conversion. http://userweb.kernel.org/~tj/misc/slabh-sweep.py The script does the followings. * Scan files for gfp and slab usages and update includes such that only the necessary includes are there. ie. if only gfp is used, gfp.h, if slab is used, slab.h. * When the script inserts a new include, it looks at the include blocks and try to put the new include such that its order conforms to its surrounding. It's put in the include block which contains core kernel includes, in the same order that the rest are ordered - alphabetical, Christmas tree, rev-Xmas-tree or at the end if there doesn't seem to be any matching order. * If the script can't find a place to put a new include (mostly because the file doesn't have fitting include block), it prints out an error message indicating which .h file needs to be added to the file. The conversion was done in the following steps. 1. The initial automatic conversion of all .c files updated slightly over 4000 files, deleting around 700 includes and adding ~480 gfp.h and ~3000 slab.h inclusions. The script emitted errors for ~400 files. 2. Each error was manually checked. Some didn't need the inclusion, some needed manual addition while adding it to implementation .h or embedding .c file was more appropriate for others. This step added inclusions to around 150 files. 3. The script was run again and the output was compared to the edits from #2 to make sure no file was left behind. 4. Several build tests were done and a couple of problems were fixed. e.g. lib/decompress_*.c used malloc/free() wrappers around slab APIs requiring slab.h to be added manually. 5. The script was run on all .h files but without automatically editing them as sprinkling gfp.h and slab.h inclusions around .h files could easily lead to inclusion dependency hell. Most gfp.h inclusion directives were ignored as stuff from gfp.h was usually wildly available and often used in preprocessor macros. Each slab.h inclusion directive was examined and added manually as necessary. 6. percpu.h was updated not to include slab.h. 7. Build test were done on the following configurations and failures were fixed. CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL was turned off for all tests (as my distributed build env didn't work with gcov compiles) and a few more options had to be turned off depending on archs to make things build (like ipr on powerpc/64 which failed due to missing writeq). * x86 and x86_64 UP and SMP allmodconfig and a custom test config. * powerpc and powerpc64 SMP allmodconfig * sparc and sparc64 SMP allmodconfig * ia64 SMP allmodconfig * s390 SMP allmodconfig * alpha SMP allmodconfig * um on x86_64 SMP allmodconfig 8. percpu.h modifications were reverted so that it could be applied as a separate patch and serve as bisection point. Given the fact that I had only a couple of failures from tests on step 6, I'm fairly confident about the coverage of this conversion patch. If there is a breakage, it's likely to be something in one of the arch headers which should be easily discoverable easily on most builds of the specific arch.

2010-02-27Staging: Octeon: Free transmit SKBs in a timely mannerDavid Daney1-24/+23
If we wait for the once-per-second cleanup to free transmit SKBs, sockets with small transmit buffer sizes might spend most of their time blocked waiting for the cleanup. Normally we do a cleanup for each transmitted packet. We add a watchdog type timer so that we also schedule a timeout for 150uS after a packet is transmitted. The watchdog is reset for each transmitted packet, so for high packet rates, it never expires. At these high rates, the cleanups are done for each packet so the extra watchdog initiated cleanups are neither needed nor triggered.

The existing code had the following race: Thread-1 Thread-2 inc/read in_use inc/read in_use inc tx_free_list[qos].len inc tx_free_list[qos].len The actual in_use value was incremented twice, but thread-1 is going to free memory based on its stale value, and will free one too many times. The result is that memory is freed back to the kernel while its packet is still in the transmit buffer. If the memory is overwritten before it is transmitted, the hardware will put a valid checksum on it and send it out (just like it does with good packets). If by chance the TCP flags are clobbered but not the addresses or ports, the result can be a broken TCP stream. The fix is to track the number of freed packets in a single location (a Fetch-and-Add Unit register). That way it can never get out of sync with itself. We try to free up to MAX_SKB_TO_FREE (currently 10) buffers at a time. If fewer are available we adjust the free count with the difference. The action of claiming buffers to free is atomic so two threads cannot claim the same buffers. Signed-off-by: David Daney <ddaney@caviumnetworks.com> Signed-off-by: Ralf Baechle <ralf@linux-mips.org>
2009-06-24Staging: octeon-ethernet: Convert to use net_device_ops.David Daney1-16/+367
Convert the driver to use net_device_ops as it is now mandatory. Also compensate for the removal of struct sk_buff's dst field. The changes are mostly mechanical, the content of ethernet-common.c was moved to ethernet.c and ethernet-common.{c,h} are removed.

2009-06-17Staging: Add octeon-ethernet driver files.David Daney1-0/+507
The octeon-ethernet driver supports the sgmii, rgmii, spi, and xaui ports present on the Cavium OCTEON family of SOCs. These SOCs are multi-core mips64 processors with existing support over in arch/mips. The driver files can be categorized into three basic groups: 1) Register definitions, these are named cvmx-*-defs.h 2) Main driver code, these have names that don't start cvmx-. 3) Interface specific functions and other utility code, names starting with cvmx- Signed-off-by: David Daney <ddaney@caviumnetworks.com> Signed-off-by: Ralf Baechle <ralf@linux-mips.org>
