      [PATCH] sys_alarm() unsigned signed conversion fixup · c08b8a49
      Thomas Gleixner authored
      
      
      alarm() calls the kernel with an unsigend int timeout in seconds.  The
      value is stored in the tv_sec field of a struct timeval to setup the
      itimer.  The tv_sec field of struct timeval is of type long, which causes
      the tv_sec value to be negative on 32 bit machines if seconds > INT_MAX.
      
      Before the hrtimer merge (pre 2.6.16) such a negative value was converted
      to the maximum jiffies timeout by the timeval_to_jiffies conversion.  It's
      not clear whether this was intended or just happened to be done by the
      timeval_to_jiffies code.
      
      hrtimers expect a timeval in canonical form and treat a negative timeout as
      already expired.  This breaks the legitimate usage of alarm() with a
      timeout value > INT_MAX seconds.
      
      For 32 bit machines it is therefor necessary to limit the internal seconds
      value to avoid API breakage.  Instead of doing this in all implementations
      of sys_alarm the duplicated sys_alarm code is moved into a common function
      in itimer.c

      [PATCH] fstatat64 support · cff2b760
      Ulrich Drepper authored
      
      
      The *at patches introduced fstatat and, due to inusfficient research, I
      used the newfstat functions generally as the guideline.  The result is that
      on 32-bit platforms we don't have all the information needed to implement
      fstatat64.
      
      This patch modifies the code to pass up 64-bit information if
      __ARCH_WANT_STAT64 is defined.  I renamed the syscall entry point to make
      this clear.  Other archs will continue to use the existing code.  On x86-64
      the compat code is implemented using a new sys32_ function.  this is what
      is done for the other stat syscalls as well.
      
      This patch might break some other archs (those which define
      __ARCH_WANT_STAT64 and which already wired up the syscall).  Yet others
      might need changes to accomodate the compatibility mode.  I really don't
      want to do that work because all this stat handling is a mess (more so in
      glibc, but the kernel is also affected).  It should be done by the arch
      maintainers.  I'll provide some stand-alone test shortly.  Those who are
      eager could compile glibc and run 'make check' (no installation needed).
      
      The patch below has been tested on x86 and x86-64.

      [PATCH] x86-64: Fix 32bit sendfile · 83b942bd
      Tsuneo.Yoshioka@f-secure.com authored
      
      
      If we use 64bit kernel on ia64/x86_64/s390 architecture, and we run
      32bit binary on 32bit compatibility mode, sendfile system call seems be
      not set offset argument.
      
      This is because sendfile's return value is not zero but the code regards
      the result by return value is zero or not.
      
      This problem will be affect to ia64/x86_64/s390 and not affect to other
      architecture does not affect other architecture (mips/parisc/ppc64/sparc64).

      Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
      even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
      archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
      3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
      git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
      infrastructure for it.
      
      Let it rip!
