      x86, dmi, debug: Log board name (when present) in dmesg/oops output · 84e383b3
      Naga Chumbalkar authored
      The "Type 2" SMBIOS record that contains Board Name is not
      strictly required and may be absent in the SMBIOS on some
      ( Please note that Type 2 is not listed in Table 3 in Sec 6.2
        ("Required Structures and Data") of the SMBIOS v2.7
        Specification. )
      Use the Manufacturer Name (aka System Vendor) name.
      Print Board Name only when it is present.
      Before the fix:
        (i) dmesg output: DMI: /ProLiant DL380 G6, BIOS P62 01/29/2011
       (ii) oops output:  Pid: 2170, comm: bash Not tainted 2.6.38-rc4+ #3 /ProLiant DL380 G6
      After the fix:
        (i) dmesg output: DMI: HP ProLiant DL380 G6, BIOS P62 01/29/2011
       (ii) oops output:  Pid: 2278, comm: bash Not tainted 2.6.38-rc4+ #4 HP ProLiant DL380 G6

      x86, ioapic: Don't warn about non-existing IOAPICs if we have none · 678301ec
      Paul Bolle authored
      mp_find_ioapic() prints errors like:
          ERROR: Unable to locate IOAPIC for GSI 13
      if it can't find the IOAPIC that manages that specific GSI. I
      see errors like that at every boot of a laptop that apparently
      doesn't have any IOAPICs.
      But if there are no IOAPICs it doesn't seem to be an error that
      none can be found. A solution that gets rid of this message is
      to directly return if nr_ioapics (still) is zero. (But keep
      returning -1 in that case, so nothing breaks from this change.)
      The call chain that generates this error is:
          case ACPI_RESOURCE_TYPE_IRQ:

      ARM: 6657/1: hw_breakpoint: fix ptrace breakpoint advertising on unsupported arch · 66e1cfe6
      Will Deacon authored
      The ptrace debug information register was advertising breakpoint and
      watchpoint resources for unsupported debug architectures. This meant
      that setting breakpoints on these architectures would appear to succeed,
      although they would never fire in reality.
      This patch fixes the breakpoint slot probing so that it returns 0 when
      running on an unsupported debug architecture.

      ARM: 6656/1: hw_breakpoint: avoid UNPREDICTABLE behaviour when reading DBGDSCR · ed19b739
      Will Deacon authored
      Reading baseline CP14 registers, other than DBGDIDR, when the OS Lock
      is set leads to UNPREDICTABLE behaviour.
      This patch ensures that we clear the OS lock before accessing anything
      other than the DBGDIDR, thereby avoiding this behaviour.

      ARM: 6659/1: Thumb-2: Make CONFIG_OABI_COMPAT depend on !CONFIG_THUMB2_KERNEL · 9bc433a1
      Dave Martin authored
      rmk says: "You might as well make OABI_COMPAT depend on !THUMB2_KERNEL.
      OABI userland is useless without FPA support."
      nwfpe doesn't work with Thumb-2 anyway and will probably never get
      ported, so I can't argue with that.
      This patch implements the dependency change.
