      [PATCH] qla3xxx NIC driver · 5a4faa87
      Ron Mercer authored
      This is a complementary network driver for our ISP4XXX parts.
      
      There is a concurrent effort underway to get the iSCSI driver (qla4xxx)
      integrated upstream as well.
      
      I have been through several iterations with the linux-netdev list and have had
      much response from Stephen Hemminger.
      
      - Built and tested using kernel 2.6.17-rc4.
      
      - The chip supports two ethernet and two iSCSI functions.
      
      - The functions ql_sem_lock, ql_sem_spinlock, ql_sem_unlock, and
        ql_wait_for_drvr_lock are used to protect resources that are shared across
        the network and iSCSI functions.  This protection is mostly during chip
        initialization and resets, but also include link management.
      
      - The PHY/MII are not exported through ethtool due to the fact that the
        iSCSI function will control the common link at least 50% of the time.
      
      This driver has been through several iterations on the netdev list and we feel
      this driver is ready for inclusion in the upstream kernel.
      
      It has been built and tested on x86 and PPC64 platforms.

      [PATCH] delay accounting taskstats interface send tgid once · ad4ecbcb
      Shailabh Nagar authored
      Send per-tgid data only once during exit of a thread group instead of once
      with each member thread exit.
      
      Currently, when a thread exits, besides its per-tid data, the per-tgid data
      of its thread group is also sent out, if its thread group is non-empty.
      The per-tgid data sent consists of the sum of per-tid stats for all
      *remaining* threads of the thread group.
      
      This patch modifies this sending in two ways:
      
      - the per-tgid data is sent only when the last thread of a thread group
        exits.  This cuts down heavily on the overhead of sending/receiving
        per-tgid data, especially when other exploiters of the taskstats
        interface aren't interested in per-tgid stats
      
      - the semantics of the per-tgid data sent are changed.  Instead of being
        the sum of per-tid data for remaining threads, the value now sent is the
        true total accumalated statistics for all threads that are/were part of
        the thread group.
      
      The patch also addresses a minor issue where failure of one accounting
      subsystem to fill in the taskstats structure was causing the send of
      taskstats to not be sent at all.
      
      The patch has been tested for stability and run cerberus for over 4 hours
      on an SMP.
