      [PATCH] x86_64: Only use asm/sections.h to declare section symbols · 2bc0414e
      Andi Kleen authored
      Adding __initdata_* to asm-generic/sections.h
      Replaces a lot of open coded externs in arch/x86_64/*
      I had to change __bss_end to __bss_stop to match the other architectures.

      [PATCH] x86_64: Unmap NULL during early bootup · f6c2e333
      Siddha, Suresh B authored
      We should zap the low mappings, as soon as possible, so that we can catch
      kernel bugs more effectively. Previously early boot had NULL mapped
      and didn't trap on NULL references.
      This patch introduces boot_level4_pgt, which will always have low identity
      addresses mapped.  Druing boot, all the processors will use this as their
      level4 pgt.  On BP, we will switch to init_level4_pgt as soon as we enter C
      code and zap the low mappings as soon as we are done with the usage of
      identity low mapped addresses.  On AP's we will zap the low mappings as
      soon as we jump to C code.

      [PATCH] i386/x86-64: Share interrupt vectors when there is a large number of interrupt sources · 6004e1b7
      James Cleverdon authored
      Here's a patch that builds on Natalie Protasevich's IRQ compression
      patch and tries to work for MPS boots as well as ACPI.  It is meant for
      a 4-node IBM x460 NUMA box, which was dying because it had interrupt
      pins with GSI numbers > NR_IRQS and thus overflowed irq_desc.
      The problem is that this system has 270 GSIs (which are 1:1 mapped with
      I/O APIC RTEs) and an 8-node box would have 540.  This is much bigger
      than NR_IRQS (224 for both i386 and x86_64).  Also, there aren't enough
      vectors to go around.  There are about 190 usable vectors, not counting
      the reserved ones and the unused vectors at 0x20 to 0x2F.  So, my patch
      attempts to compress the GSI range and share vectors by sharing IRQs.

      APIC vector 0xF9 in hw_irq.h.
      5 software defined bank ids in mce.h.
      new apic.c function to setup threshold apic lvt.
      defaults to interrupt off, count enabled, and threshold limit max.

      [PATCH] x86_64: Add 4GB DMA32 zone · a2f1b424
      Andi Kleen authored
      Add a new 4GB GFP_DMA32 zone between the GFP_DMA and GFP_NORMAL zones.
      As a bit of historical background: when the x86-64 port
      was originally designed we had some discussion if we should
      use a 16MB DMA zone like i386 or a 4GB DMA zone like IA64 or
      both. Both was ruled out at this point because it was in early
      2.4 when VM is still quite shakey and had bad troubles even
      dealing with one DMA zone.  We settled on the 16MB DMA zone mainly
      because we worried about older soundcards and the floppy.
      But this has always caused problems since then because
      device drivers had trouble getting enough DMA able memory. These days
      the VM works much better and the wide use of NUMA has proven
      it can deal with many zones successfully.
      So this patch adds both zones.
      This helps drivers who need a lot of memory below 4GB because
      their hardware is not accessing more (graphic drivers - proprietary
      and free ones, video frame buffer drivers, sound drivers etc.).
      Previously they could only use IOMMU+16MB GFP_DMA, which
      was not enough memory.
      Another common problem is that hardware who has full memory
      addressing for >4GB misses it for some control structures in memory
      (like transmit rings or other metadata).  They tended to allocate memory
      in the 16MB GFP_DMA or the IOMMU/swiotlb then using pci_alloc_consistent,
      but that can tie up a lot of precious 16MB GFPDMA/IOMMU/swiotlb memory
      (even on AMD systems the IOMMU tends to be quite small) especially if you have
      many devices.  With the new zone pci_alloc_consistent can just put
      this stuff into memory below 4GB which works better.
      One argument was still if the zone should be 4GB or 2GB. The main
      motivation for 2GB would be an unnamed not so unpopular hardware
      raid controller (mostly found in older machines from a particular four letter
      company) who has a strange 2GB restriction in firmware. But
      that one works ok with swiotlb/IOMMU anyways, so it doesn't really
      need GFP_DMA32. I chose 4GB to be compatible with IA64 and because
      it seems to be the most common restriction.
      The new zone is so far added only for x86-64.
      For other architectures who don't set up this
      new zone nothing changes. Architectures can set a compatibility
      define in Kconfig CONFIG_DMA_IS_DMA32 that will define GFP_DMA32
      as GFP_DMA. Otherwise it's a nop because on 32bit architectures
      it's normally not needed because GFP_NORMAL (=0) is DMA able
      One problem is still that GFP_DMA means different things on different
      architectures. e.g. some drivers used to have #ifdef ia64  use GFP_DMA
      (trusting it to be 4GB) #elif __x86_64__ (use other hacks like
      the swiotlb because 16MB is not enough) ... . This was quite
      ugly and is now obsolete.
      These should be now converted to use GFP_DMA32 unconditionally. I haven't done
      this yet. Or best only use pci_alloc_consistent/dma_alloc_coherent
      which will use GFP_DMA32 transparently.

      [PATCH] nvidiafb: Geforce 7800 series support added · 7015faa7
      Calin A. Culianu authored
      This adds support for the Nvidia Geforce 7800 series of cards to the
      nvidiafb framebuffer driver.  All it does is add the PCI device id for
      the 7800, 7800 GTX, 7800 GO, and 7800 GTX GO cards to the module device
      table for the nvidiafb.ko driver, so that nvidiafb.ko will actually work
      on these cards.
      I also added the relevant PCI device ids to linux/pci_ids.h
      I tested it on my 7800 GTX here and it works like a charm.  I now can
      get framebuffer support on this card! Woo hoo!! Nothing like 200x75 text
      mode to make your eyes BLEED.  ;)

      NFSv4: Fix problem with OPEN_DOWNGRADE · d530838b
      Trond Myklebust authored
       RFC 3530 states that for OPEN_DOWNGRADE "The share_access and share_deny

       share_deny bits specified for some subset of the OPENs in effect for
       current openowner on the current file.
       Setattr is currently violating the NFSv4 rules for OPEN_DOWNGRADE in that
       it may cause a downgrade from OPEN4_SHARE_ACCESS_BOTH to
       OPEN4_SHARE_ACCESS_WRITE despite the fact that there exists no open file

      [ARM] 3086/1: ixp2xxx error irq handling · 7866f649
      Dave Jiang authored
      Patch from Dave Jiang
      This provides support for IXP2xxx error interrupt handling. Previously there was a patch to remove this (although the original stuff was broken). Well, now the error bits are needed again. These are used extensively by the micro-engine drivers according to Deepak and also we will need it for the new EDAC code that Alan Cox is trying to push into the main kernel.
      Re-submit of 3072/1, generated against git tree pulled today. AFAICT, this git tree pulled in all the ARM changes that's in arm.diff. Please let me know if there are additional changes. Thx!
