      ftrace: disable dynamic ftrace for all archs that use daemon · 07c4cc1c
      Steven Rostedt authored
      
      
      The ftrace daemon is complex and can cause nasty races if something goes
      wrong. Since it affects all of the kernel, this patch disables dynamic
      ftrace from any arch that depends on the daemon. Until the archs are
      ported over to the new MCOUNT_RECORD method, I am disabling dynamic
      ftrace from them.
      
      Note: I am leaving in the arch/<arch>/kernel/ftrace.c code alone since
      that can be used when the arch is ported to MCOUNT_RECORD. To port
      the arch to MCOUNT_RECORD, the scripts/recordmcount.pl needs to be
      updated. I will make that easier to do for 2.6.29. For 28, we will keep
      the archs disabled.

      [ARM] msm: rename ARCH_MSM7X00A to ARCH_MSM · 1637de0c
      Brian Swetland authored
      
      
      The MSM architecture covers a wider family of chips than just the MSM7X00A.
      Move to a more generic name, in perparation for supporting the specific
      SoC variants as sub-architectures (ARCH_MSM7X01A, ARCH_MSM722X, etc).  This
      gives us ARCH_MSM for the (many) common peripherals.
      
      This also removes the unused/obsolete config item MSM7X00A_IDLE.

      ftrace: rename FTRACE to FUNCTION_TRACER · 606576ce
      Steven Rostedt authored
      
      
      Due to confusion between the ftrace infrastructure and the gcc profiling
      tracer "ftrace", this patch renames the config options from FTRACE to
      FUNCTION_TRACER.  The other two names that are offspring from FTRACE
      DYNAMIC_FTRACE and FTRACE_MCOUNT_RECORD will stay the same.
      
      This patch was generated mostly by script, and partially by hand.

      container freezer: implement freezer cgroup subsystem · dc52ddc0
      Matt Helsley authored
      
      
      This patch implements a new freezer subsystem in the control groups
      framework.  It provides a way to stop and resume execution of all tasks in
      a cgroup by writing in the cgroup filesystem.
      
      The freezer subsystem in the container filesystem defines a file named
      freezer.state.  Writing "FROZEN" to the state file will freeze all tasks
      in the cgroup.  Subsequently writing "RUNNING" will unfreeze the tasks in
      the cgroup.  Reading will return the current state.
      
      * Examples of usage :
      
         # mkdir /containers/freezer
         # mount -t cgroup -ofreezer freezer  /containers
         # mkdir /containers/0
         # echo $some_pid > /containers/0/tasks
      
      to get status of the freezer subsystem :
      
         # cat /containers/0/freezer.state
         RUNNING
      
      to freeze all tasks in the container :
      
         # echo FROZEN > /containers/0/freezer.state
         # cat /containers/0/freezer.state
         FREEZING
         # cat /containers/0/freezer.state
         FROZEN
      
      to unfreeze all tasks in the container :
      
         # echo RUNNING > /containers/0/freezer.state
         # cat /containers/0/freezer.state
         RUNNING
      
      This is the basic mechanism which should do the right thing for user space
      task in a simple scenario.
      
      It's important to note that freezing can be incomplete.  In that case we
      return EBUSY.  This means that some tasks in the cgroup are busy doing
      something that prevents us from completely freezing the cgroup at this
      time.  After EBUSY, the cgroup will remain partially frozen -- reflected
      by freezer.state reporting "FREEZING" when read.  The state will remain
      "FREEZING" until one of these things happens:
      
      	1) Userspace cancels the freezing operation by writing "RUNNING" to
      		the freezer.state file
      	2) Userspace retries the freezing operation by writing "FROZEN" to
      		the freezer.state file (writing "FREEZING" is not legal
      		and returns EIO)
      	3) The tasks that blocked the cgroup from entering the "FROZEN"
      		state disappear from the cgroup's set of tasks.

      [ARM] 5295/1: make ZONE_DMA optional · 3bca103a
      Nicolas Pitre authored
      
      
      Most ARM machines don't need a special "DMA" memory zone, and
      when configured out, the kernel becomes a bit smaller:
      
      |   text    data     bss     dec     hex filename
      |3826182  102384  111700 4040266  3da64a vmlinux
      |3823593  101616  111700 4036909  3d992d vmlinux.nodmazone
      
      This is because the system now has only one zone total which effect is
      to optimize away many conditionals in page allocation paths.
      
      So let's configure this zone only on machines that need split zones.

      [ARM] Skip memory holes in FLATMEM when reading /proc/pagetypeinfo · e80d6a24
      Mel Gorman authored
      
      
      Ordinarily, memory holes in flatmem still have a valid memmap and is safe
      to use. However, an architecture (ARM) frees up the memmap backing memory
      holes on the assumption it is never used. /proc/pagetypeinfo reads the
      whole range of pages in a zone believing that the memmap is valid and that
      pfn_valid will return false if it is not. On ARM, freeing the memmap breaks
      the page->zone linkages even though pfn_valid() returns true and the kernel
      can oops shortly afterwards due to accessing a bogus struct zone *.
      
      This patch lets architectures say when FLATMEM can have holes in the
      memmap. Rather than an expensive check for valid memory, /proc/pagetypeinfo
      will confirm that the page linkages are still valid by checking page->zone
      is still the expected zone. The lookup of page_zone is safe as there is a
      limited range of memory that is accessed when calling page_zone.  Even if
      page_zone happens to return the correct zone, the impact is that the counters
      in /proc/pagetypeinfo are slightly off but fragmentation monitoring is
      unlikely to be relevant on an embedded system.

      gpiolib: allow user-selection · 7444a72e
      Michael Buesch authored
      
      
      This patch adds functionality to the gpio-lib subsystem to make it
      possible to enable the gpio-lib code even if the architecture code didn't
      request to get it built in.
      
      The archtitecture code does still need to implement the gpiolib accessor
      functions in its asm/gpio.h file.  This patch adds the implementations for
      x86 and PPC.
      
      With these changes it is possible to run generic GPIO expansion cards on
      every architecture that implements the trivial wrapper functions.  Support
      for more architectures can easily be added.

      Nicolas Pitre, Manish Lachwani, and Jason Wessel have contributed
      various fixups here as well.
      
      The KGDB patch makes one change to the core ARM architecture such that
      the traps are initialized early for use with the debugger or other
      subsystems.
