      [PATCH] simplify update_times (avoid jiffies/jiffies_64 aliasing problem) · 3171a030
      Atsushi Nemoto authored
      Pass ticks to do_timer() and update_times(), and adjust x86_64 and s390
      timer interrupt handler with this change.
      Currently update_times() calculates ticks by "jiffies - wall_jiffies", but
      callers of do_timer() should know how many ticks to update.  Passing ticks
      get rid of this redundant calculation.  Also there are another redundancy
      pointed out by Martin Schwidefsky.
      This cleanup make a barrier added by
       needless.  So this patch removes
      As a bonus, this cleanup make wall_jiffies can be removed easily, since now
      wall_jiffies is always synced with jiffies.  (This patch does not really
      remove wall_jiffies.  It would be another cleanup patch)

      [PATCH] genirq: rename desc->handler to desc->chip · d1bef4ed
      Ingo Molnar authored
      This patch-queue improves the generic IRQ layer to be truly generic, by adding
      various abstractions and features to it, without impacting existing
      While the queue can be best described as "fix and improve everything in the
      generic IRQ layer that we could think of", and thus it consists of many
      smaller features and lots of cleanups, the one feature that stands out most is
      the new 'irq chip' abstraction.
      The irq-chip abstraction is about describing and coding and IRQ controller
      driver by mapping its raw hardware capabilities [and quirks, if needed] in a
      straightforward way, without having to think about "IRQ flow"
      (level/edge/etc.) type of details.
      This stands in contrast with the current 'irq-type' model of genirq
      architectures, which 'mixes' raw hardware capabilities with 'flow' details.
      The patchset supports both types of irq controller designs at once, and
      converts i386 and x86_64 to the new irq-chip design.
      As a bonus side-effect of the irq-chip approach, chained interrupt controllers
      (master/slave PIC constructs, etc.) are now supported by design as well.
      The end result of this patchset intends to be simpler architecture-level code
      and more consolidation between architectures.
      We reused many bits of code and many concepts from Russell King's ARM IRQ
      layer, the merging of which was one of the motivations for this patchset.
      This patch:
      rename desc->handler to desc->chip.
      Originally i did not want to do this, because it's a big patch.  But having
      both "desc->handler", "desc->handle_irq" and "action->handler" caused a
      large degree of confusion and made the code appear alot less clean than it
      truly is.
      I have also attempted a dual approach as well by introducing a
      desc->chip alias - but that just wasnt robust enough and broke
      So lets get over with this quickly.  The conversion was done automatically
      via scripts and converts all the code in the kernel.
      This renaming patch is the first one amongst the patches, so that the
      remaining patches can stay flexible and can be merged and split up
      without having some big monolithic patch act as a merge barrier.
