      Make the "word-at-a-time" helper functions more commonly usable · f68e556e
      Linus Torvalds authored
      
      
      I have a new optimized x86 "strncpy_from_user()" that will use these
      same helper functions for all the same reasons the name lookup code uses
      them.  This is preparation for that.
      
      This moves them into an architecture-specific header file.  It's
      architecture-specific for two reasons:
      
       - some of the functions are likely to want architecture-specific
         implementations.  Even if the current code happens to be "generic" in
         the sense that it should work on any little-endian machine, it's
         likely that the "multiply by a big constant and shift" implementation
         is less than optimal for an architecture that has a guaranteed fast
         bit count instruction, for example.
      
       - I expect that if architectures like sparc want to start playing
         around with this, we'll need to abstract out a few more details (in
         particular the actual unaligned accesses).  So we're likely to have
         more architecture-specific stuff if non-x86 architectures start using
         this.
      
         (and if it turns out that non-x86 architectures don't start using
         this, then having it in an architecture-specific header is still the
         right thing to do, of course)

      xen/smp: Remove unnecessary call to smp_processor_id() · e8c9e788

      There is an extra and unnecessary call to smp_processor_id()
      in cpu_bringup(). Remove it.

      xen/x86: Workaround 'x86/ioapic: Add register level checks to detect bogus io-apic entries' · 2531d64b
      Konrad Rzeszutek Wilk authored
      
      
      The above mentioned patch checks the IOAPIC and if it contains
      -1, then it unmaps said IOAPIC. But under Xen we get this:

      The reason we are dying is b/c the call acpi_get_override_irq() is used,
      which returns the polarity and trigger for the IRQs. That function calls
      mp_find_ioapics to get the 'struct ioapic' structure - which along with the
      mp_irq[x] is used to figure out the default values and the polarity/trigger
      overrides. Since the mp_find_ioapics now returns -1 [b/c the IOAPIC is filled
      with 0xffffffff], the acpi_get_override_irq() stops trying to lookup in the
      mp_irq[x] the proper INT_SRV_OVR and we can't install the SCI interrupt.
      
      The proper fix for this is going in v3.5 and adds an x86_io_apic_ops
      struct so that platforms can override it. But for v3.4 lets carry this
      work-around. This patch does that by providing a slightly different variant
      of the fake IOAPIC entries.
