      [PATCH] LOG2: Implement a general integer log2 facility in the kernel · f0d1b0b3
      David Howells authored
      This facility provides three entry points:
      
      	ilog2()		Log base 2 of unsigned long
      	ilog2_u32()	Log base 2 of u32
      	ilog2_u64()	Log base 2 of u64
      
      These facilities can either be used inside functions on dynamic data:
      
      	int do_something(long q)
      	{
      		...;
      		y = ilog2(x)
      		...;
      	}
      
      Or can be used to statically initialise global variables with constant values:
      
      	unsigned n = ilog2(27);
      
      When performing static initialisation, the compiler will report "error:
      initializer element is not constant" if asked to take a log of zero or of
      something not reducible to a constant.  They treat negative numbers as
      unsigned.
      
      When not dealing with a constant, they fall back to using fls() which permits
      them to use arch-specific log calculation instructions - such as BSR on
      x86/x86_64 or SCAN on FRV - if available.

      [PATCH] mm: m68k kill stram swap · f9c98d02
      Hugh Dickins authored
      Please, please now delete the Atari CONFIG_STRAM_SWAP code.  It may be
      excellent and ingenious code, but its reference to swap_vfsmnt betrays that it
      hasn't been built since 2.5.1 (four years old come December), it's delving
      deep into matters which are the preserve of core mm code, its only purpose is
      to give the more conscientious mm guys an anxiety attack from time to time;
      yet we keep on breaking it more and more.
      
      If you want to use RAM for swap, then if the MTD driver does not already
      provide just what you need, I'm sure David could be persuaded to add the
      extra.  But you'd also like to be able to allocate extents of that swap for
      other use: we can give you a core interface for that if you need.  But unbuilt
      for four years suggests to me that there's no need at all.
      
      I cannot swear the patch below won't break your build, but believe so.

      [PATCH] Kconfig fix (BLK_DEV_FD dependencies) · a08b6b79
      viro@ZenIV.linux.org.uk authored
      Sanitized and fixed floppy dependencies: split the messy dependencies for
      BLK_DEV_FD by introducing a new symbol (ARCH_MAY_HAVE_PC_FDC), making
      BLK_DEV_FD depend on that one and taking declarations of ARCH_MAY_HAVE_PC_FDC
      to arch/*/Kconfig.  While we are at it, fixed several obvious cases when
      BLK_DEV_FD should have been excluded (architectures lacking asm/floppy.h
      are *not* going to have floppy.c compile, let alone work).
      
      If you can come up with better name for that ("this architecture might
      have working PC-compatible floppy disk controller"), you are more than
      welcome - just s/ARCH_MAY_HAVE_PC_FDC/your_prefered_name/g in the patch
      below...

      [NET]: add a top-level Networking menu to *config · d5950b43
      Sam Ravnborg authored
      Create a new top-level menu named "Networking" thus moving
      net related options and protocol selection way from the drivers
      menu and up on the top-level where they belong.
      
      To implement this all architectures has to source "net/Kconfig" before
      drivers/*/Kconfig in their Kconfig file. This change has been
      implemented for all architectures.
      
      Device drivers for ordinary NIC's are still to be found
      in the Device Drivers section, but Bluetooth, IrDA and ax25
      are located with their corresponding menu entries under the new
      networking menu item.

      Linux-2.6.12-rc2 · 1da177e4
      Linus Torvalds authored
      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!
